THE SUNDAY OREGOXIAX, PORTLAND, MAY 15, 1921 19 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 to stock. 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 Cal 1 fornia has been retarded th ts season in contrast with the earlier movement from Texas. Thirteen cars were reported from California the past week, compared with 219 a year ago. age and limit their bids strictly price. The movement of prints the slow course of other commodities died at retail. Eggs were steady with cash buyers pay ing 19 cents for the day's receipts, and the same bid holds good for Monday. Poultry was scarce and firm at Friday! prices. Arrivals of country dressed meats were also light. The demand was slug gish and prices were weak. 5 EXPORT BUYING IS LARGE FOBEIGXERS ENTER MARKET WliEX PRICES DROP. Bank Clearines.

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 Corn and oats were generally m tune with wheat, but the former met some sup port on seaboard demand that served to narrow price fluctuations. Country oiler in its Increased. Provisions; after a fairly firm start, eased off in .sympathy with grain and hos:s. 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 sults on prices. 1.75; No. 2, $1.391.41; No. 3, $1.351.44; No. 1 northern, I1.4H&1.4S; No. 2, 51.37$ 1.43; No. 3. $1.34 01.36. , Barley, 48 & 62c Flax, No. 1, $l.B0Hei-S2.-Futures Wheat, May, $1.37tt; July. 1121.

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 cents lower. ' 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 Friday night. The condition of winter wheat in Cali fornia is 80 per cent, the same as a year ago. Production indicated is 8,383.000 bushels from an area of about 505.090 acres. The Indicated production of hay. 3.656,000 tons, which includes alfalfa. grains cut green, other cultivated grasses and wild hay. Terminal receipts.

There was only a small demand for apples locally, as might be expected with the berry season on. Winesaps were held at $2.23 3, Spitzenbergs at $2.252.50 and Newt owns at $2.2562.50. Northwestern extra fancy Winesaps Were steady at Chicago at $2.753.25 for large rises and $26 2-50 for small sizes. Good quality barreled apples have been In demand in eastern city markets, A range of $H to $7 per barrel for New York cold storage Baldwins Included most sales of the week. Boston reported a good movement with values as high as IS and best quality apples were well taken in New York up to $8.50. The movement of both barreled and boxed apples was nearly constant. New York state shipping most of the barreled stock and Washington nearly all of the boxed. BfSRIES FIRM WITH GOOD DEMAND Higher Prior On Oranges and Florida Grapefruit Are Indicated. Receipts of California strawberries were liberal yesterday and as the demand was good they cleaned up readily. The best brought $3.50. A number of crates of Oregoffs were received and sold at $5 5.50. FV'rtda grapefruit and California oranges are firm with higher prices quoted at ship ping points, which means an advance in quotations here In the near future. Another car of Florida pineapples is due Monday. They will sell at $8.5009 a crate. or $4.0 a dozen for the 24 or 30 sizes. The asparagus market is weak and will probably be lower in the coming weak as the favorable growing weather will mean heavier receipts.

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. Corn For the majority 01 tne ession buying power was lacking and prices re ceded quito rapidly, under the pressure of selling by commission houses and by cash interests in the nature of hedging a train- Durchases in the country. Re- I ceipts were only .0 cars and met a gooa demand at yesterday's basis. Shipping sales of 115.000 bushels were reported, including 50.000 to exporters, and it was Inrimntod that a good-sized export busi ness was being done, but not reported. We consider the action or tne martiei towards the close indicative of a strong position. Oats Declined with otner grain ana 1 selling Inspired by the absence of further damage reports. It would be no surprise, however, to hear many com plaints next week as a result of the low temperatures. The cash market was steady. Rye .Persistent buying or juiy oy sea board interests was the outstanding fea ture and offset the liquidation induced by the weakness in wheat.
