OUTLOOK IS NOT BRIGHT
Trade With Southern Section Can
not Be Worked at Over One
Dollar to Growers.
Between TOO and SOO cars of potatoes
have been shipped out of the state since
the season opened. About 150 ears of
these were seed Gamete. The quantity
pf table stock snipped out has, therefore.
" been very small for the middle of the sea
son. It has been an unsatisfactory year to
date for both shippers and growers and
( the outlook for the remainder of the sea
son is not particularly bright. There
are inquiries now on the raaricei xor
fairly large tonnage, but the orders cannot
be filled, as the prices offered are too low.
In order to compete with the middle west
ern and Rocky mountain states in getting
southern business, shippers here would
have to buy good potatoes at 75 cents to
41, prices that farmers would not con
sider. The latter are able to sell In a
small way at $1.25 to $1.50 and while they
can get these prices for limited quanti
ties they are net disposed to meet carlot
shippers it lower prices.
Local jobbers are doing only a small
business In potatoes, as the retail trade,
as well as restaurants, hotels and con
sumers are being; supplied by near-by
farmer.

CHICAGO, Jan. 11. Foreign buying, to
gether with indications or better domestic
milling demand, brought an advance today
In wheat prices. March touched $1.S0 a
bushel, the topmost point since Novem
ber 11. The close was unsettled at 14 0
114C net gala with March $1.7801.784 and
May $1.68 1.69. Corn finished un
changed to lie higher; oats 14C014C off
and provisions showing an upturn ot
12 040c. r
Chief attention in wheat centered on the
fact that hedges here were removed on be
tween 1.000,000 and 1,500,000 bushels sold
for export. The export business was done,
too, lr the face of assertions that Argen
tine wheat was quoted 10c a bushel cheaper
than current figure, in the United States
Notice was also taken of signs of im
provement In the flour trade, especially
word that Minneapolis mills were running
at 60 per cent of capacity as against 40
per cent a month ago. Bulls contended
that the United States had already ex
ported too much wheat and that reserves
were uncomfortably small. On the ad
vance, however, profit-taking by longs did
much to force a reaction, and so, too, did
an Increase of country offerings.
Corn and oats were held down by appar
ent likelihood that the movement of corn
to market would continue relatively large.
Provisions reflected the weakness of hog
values, but later went upgrade when shorts
ceversd
The Chicago market letter received yes
terday, by Overbeck & Cooke company of
Portland said:
Wheat Buying of futures for foreign
account was the feature during early trad
ing, together with short covering induced
by the reported sales of 600.000 bushels of
gulf wheat on the previous night. The
advance, however, brought oat sufficient
realising sales to satisfy the buying power
and towsrd the cloite 'short-selling was
Indulged In on advices from the southwest
of larger country offerings. The news
general is undeniably more bollish than
it has been for months, particularly as to
the domestic situation. With Chicago
stocks only 1,212.000 bushels and likely to
be moved out In the immediate future, the
possibility of accumulating a quantity suf
ficient to depress prices from this level
Is remote as the cash article in outside
markets is commanding premiums of 13
cents to 25 cents a bushel over March. The
adjustment of this disparity Is more than
likely to be brought about through an ad
vance in price of futures.
Corn Sentiment mixed and the market
was a dull affair with trade on both sides
well balanced.
Oats Prices held in a narrow range and
Influenced by the action of wheat and
corn. Receipts were estimated at only 90
cars and the cash market had a firm tone
with, the trading basis slightly Improved
With the country selling sparingly, this
market would quickly respond to any lni
provement in the cash demand.
Rye Selling of rye futures against pur
chases of wheat wa the outstanding fea
ture, but the ma'iket nevertheless ex
hlbited an undertone of strength because
of the reports of a good export demand
with business prevented only by the scarc
ity of offerings.
Provisions Declined early on large
ceipts of hogs and lower prices. Shorts
gave the best support and as offerings
were small (he market firmed up and
closed at the top prices of the day.

In the judgment of all able
and careful observers of
financial conditions it the
most direct route to future
prosperity.
The exceptional opportun
ity open for the inveator
with ready money is pass
ing. The stock market at
present has the appearance
of calmness after the storm
and in our opinion now is
the time for conservative
accumulation.
We have compiled data on
a number of stocks that are
selling for only about half
of their intrinsic values and
in addition to dividend
yields that average about
