OLD POTATOES ARE
GOING OUT BETTER
Renewed California Demand
Due to Short Supplies.
PRICES LITTLE CHANGED
Best Stock Will Probably Clean t"p
la This State Farmers Are
Feeding Low Grades.
Potatoes moved out better during the
week. There was some improvement in
the California demand, as receipts at
southern points were lighter. Shippers
In this state paid up to $1 to growers for
the best stock and did not care to go
higher. Ordinary grade potatoes were
taken around 75 cents. It is probable
that the best quality will now be cleaned
up, and as for inferior potatoes farmers
are fast disposing of them by feeding
The local Jobbing demand for old po
tatoes continues limited. New Callforni
potatoes are plentiful and lower. Garnets
selling on the street at 6&6c a pound.
The movement of old potatoes through
out the country is liberal, averaging about
2500 cars a week. The surplus movement
exceeds that of several previous season's.
If the present rate of shipment should
continue for two weeks more the season's
total will liave reached 150,000 cars for
'the main crop.
Old potatoes are generally steady
throughout the east, though some sales
of New York round white stock were
made below $1 a hundred. The closing
range on sacked whites was 90c$1.10.
At shipping points prices were from 60
to 70 cents and the Chicago carlot market
was 80 to 00 cents.
The general recovery In the markets for
Florida new potatoes was well maintained
and most eastern cities reported moderate
acKances. Spauldlng Rose closed 25 to 50
cents a barrel higher In consuming mar
kets, at $86? 9. In middle western cities
Texas Bll.ss Triumphs were eaMer at $4.25
4.73 a hundred. The movement of new
potatoes is naturally Increasing.
Some Irregularity has appeared in the
markets for new onions, prices advancing
moderately in eastern cities to a range
of fl.tto to $li per standard crate of mixed
No. 1 and - yellow Bermuda stock, com
mercial pack, while values declined 10 to
25 cents per crate in the middle west,
closing $1.25 to $1.75. Prices recovered
last week's decline of 15 to 20 cents at
shipping points, closing around $1 for sales
on wire orders. During April Texas
shipped 2116 cars of onions, compared
with Hi67 cars in April. 1920. The move
ment decreased moderately in the past
week, with 579 cars, compared with 664
cars the preceding week. Movement from

Early "Weakness Due to Restrictive
legislation ; Little Change
In Final Quotations.
CHICAGO, May 14- Grain traders, in
fluenced by the passage of the Tincher
bill by the national house and the pros
pects of restrictive legislation in Illinois,
drove at prices on the board of trade. But
when wheat reached a point 6 cents under
yesterday's high, export buyers poured or
ders Into the pit and practically all losses
were recovered in the final 15 minutes.
May wheat closed at yesterdays' final of
$1.43 H to $1.43 4 and the rest of the
list was only fractionally lower.
Sentiment that the effect of the Tincher
bill would be to restrict trading and re
sult In lower prices was The chief factor
In wheat. May started down at the open
ing and there was little support in evi
dence. Some local commission nouses,
which bought early, soon switched their
trades and to the effect of this were added
reports of beneficial rains in Oklahoma
and the Texas panhandle and advices that
wintry weather in Nebraska had not done
any great damage. Toward the close, the
usual week-end covering had only fairly
started when the big buying drove the
entire list upward. I

Provisions; after a fairly firm start,
eased off in .sympathy with grain and
Government figures on the 1921 yield of
winter wheat have done a good deal this
week to put the wheat market on the
down grade. Compared with a week ago,
wheat prices this morning were 1 to 5c
lower, whereas corn was up Ho to lc and
oats showed gains of H to c. The pro
vision list was unchanged to o0c off. Al
though the official forecast of winter wheat
production proved to be considerably un
der what the majority of traders had
looked for, the total nevertheless appeared
sufficient to justify much of the heavy
elling done before the report was issued,
Tradition that this was a period which an
nually has been adverse to the buying side
tended also to weaken the market, not
withstanding that transient rallies were in
duced by settlement of the German repara
tions matter and by a statement of the
secretary of agriculture favoring general
higher prices than before the war. Mean
while reports showing crop deterioration in
the southwest failed to have any lasting
new effect and the success of the emer
gency tariff bill in the senate and of the
Tinchner bill in the house rainy counter
balanced each other aa t-J immediate re

WHEAT BUYING OF FAIR VOLUME
Prices steady at Close- of Week May Tel-
low Corn Sold.
There was a steady volume of business
in the wheat market throughout the week
and up to the close. The buying was scat
tered, but the aggregate was of very fair
proportions, notwithstanding that quoted
values are practically the same as bids
from foreigners. Farmers at ho time dur
ing the week seemed disposed to press
sales on the market. Bids at the Mer
chants' Exchange were the same as Fri
day, except on red Walla, which was 2
' One hundred tons of No. 2 easttrri yellow
corn were sold at $32 for May shipment.
Other coarse grains were steady.
Another advance of $1 a ton in millrun
was announced during the day; the new
quotation being $30 f. o. b. mill.
Eastern crop reports continued variable.
John Inglis wired from Dodge City:
"Hutchison to Dodge City and from Pie
vina to Mackvllle had good rain a week
ago. which helped wheat; color good, make
eight to 15 bushels. West from Kinsley to
North Falls down, stand thin, short and
very late. Frost hurt this section. Cool
and cloudy now. Temperatures are much
too low for proper progress ef the crop."
The Colorado crop report was favorable
on wheat. Omaha reported that Fillmore
County, Nebraska, would not raise 40 per
cent of a crop, duo to the freeze in April.
There was heavy frost and ice at Omaha

SLOW MOVEMENT IN APPLE TRADE
Berries Interfere With Demand; Prices

as history reveals that such measures have
almost Invariably proved reactionary rroro
the intended purpose. The selling, how
ever, was absorbed in a convincing way
and towards the close the market gained
pronounced strength on buying by sea
board interests, followed later by reports
of fully l.oOO.OoO bushels having been
taken for export. There has been very
little foreign buying for several days past
and this development was naturally con
sidered very constructive.- Clearances for
the week were over 7,000,000 bushels, and
if they continue at that rate very long it
will undoubtedly mean depletion ef sup
plies towards the end of the crop year.
Out of the total visible of 12.000.000
bushels, there is only 6,000,000 at termi
nals. The remainder hw.at ports and as
good as gone. Crop reports today were
mixed. Unless we get some good growing
weather in the very near future, well
founded damage reports are very apt to
become numerous and bring about a
higher level of prices for the July delivery.
