Proht Street, Jan. ' S. The prinfclpal
items of interest in the local markets
today were: -.
'Feed ranging-higher. ' '( ,
Egg weaker and lower. , ': ,
Changes in butter..
All coffees higher. ' i .
Large poultry demand.
"Wheat Btill weak.
' Very few hops are left
reed Xaag-M EUgner. - . 1
The practical opening- of the feeding
season has caused a much larger demand'
to prevail in that market and quota
tions are about 60 cents a ton higher
today on. bran- and shorts. . Middlings
are unchanged, '"'.',
Portland Won't .rollow East. ,
' The Portland wheat market does not
seem to follow tbe lead of the eastern
markets in their advances and no quota
tions of any moment nave taken place
In this market for some time. The
principal reason for the advances ,in th
price of wheat in the East seems to be
on account of the extensive demand for
flour in the Middle West -: which the
millers were unable to supply at the
former Quotations on wheat Out here
the demand for flour from the outside
seems to be nominal, as both Japan and
China are heavily overstocked and only
active warfare and a prolonged struggle
at Chat would cause any further calls for
stocks from that direction. No changes
are noted in local figures on either wheat
or flour today. -
raw Sops Ax Unsold.
Each additional day shows more sales
of hops at the top price 26 cents and
now the stocks remaining; lnithe bands
of the farmers are small Indeed. ' It is
a difficult matter to give an estimate
at this time of the hops unsold and an
accurate count would be impossible.
The hop market is very weak, with the
dealers bulling the prices for all they
are worth. The situation as it now
stands 14 that the dealers are, in abso
lute control and the few bales remain
ing unsold eut but little figure with the
market . From those on the inside the
information comes that soon there will
be a change In prices, either for the
better or worse. With the dealers In
full control they will make a strong
effort to boost prices clear out of sight,
but whether they can accomplish this Is
a matter of conjecture. The sales of
hops in this state of late have been for
Egg Are Weaker and lower. . J
The price of eggs shows a decline to
day and the market Is weaker, with the
receipts coming heavier each day on ac
count of the warmer weather. Local
Front street merchants are well filled
with fresh eggs and they are not refus
ing 'any prices from 27H to 30 cents
- Poultry emains Firm.
Although Saturday is usually a very
dull day in the Front street market the
fact: that it followed directly after
New Tear's did make It doubly so and
business on the street was quiet This
was not true, however, in tbe poultry
market for the demand here was very
strong, with the receipts out of all pro
portion to the call. A few turkeys, both
live and dressed, arrived in and found a
good demand at current prices.,
,';.rresa Keats Very rirm.
The fresh meat markets are very
firm on all products at yesterday
changes. There is a particular dearth
of veal of all kinds, and the few ar
rivals are eagerly snapped up at
slightly higher prices than those listed
Good hogs. In fact all hogs, are wanted
at the new prices.
Store Butter Slumps.
The receipts of country store butter
have simply caused a slump in the local
figures. Arrivals of late have broken
all records in this market Creamery
butter of ordinary grade la still weak,
with the demand for the very choicest
goods fair. Prices of creamery ' are
about the same.
Eloa Coffee Is Higher.'
With the advance of Lion coffee today
all .. eastern package- coffee of the
cheaper grades are quoted at the same
price S11.75. The advance in Lion
brand was 60 cents a hundred. Thq
entire coffee market is Showing A firm
In Potato and Onion Market. .
There was no change In the shipping
demand for potatoes, and prices in thia
market remain unchanged today. Local
dealers in touch with the San Francisco;
market say that nothing except too
very best goods are selling. No Imr
provement is expected in this market
during the coming week. There is a
slightly better tone in onions, but o far
prices remain unchanged.
Opinions oa Today's Stark!
W. B. Olafke Company No Improve
ment in the prune situation; creamery
butter is still weak and piling up.
Turner & Co. Poultry is entirely
cleaned up at top prices; eggs are ac
cumulating faster and the market ig
weaker and lower. , ,
Mark Levy A Co. Business opened
tip fairly good for the second day of
the year and Saturday, too.
Bell A Co. Car fancy Merced sweet
potatoes came in today; prices are gon
rally up, , .
, Chatterton A Co. Poultry of all
kinds - continues to find sale at top
prices; pork looking up in price; cream
ery butter shows no Improvement
Levy A Splegl Sorne very fine hot-
nouse tomatoes came in from Los An
geles per express today.
Q. S. Smith Company Chickens in
good demand; medium apples are good
sellers. -. . ..
IX E. Melkle Don't look for any
change in potato business for A few
days anyway; onions are a little firmer
than they were.
Davenport, Thompson A Co. Car ba
nana due tonight; steamer goods sold
Everding A Farrejl Oregon eggs are
weaker and lower; country store and
dairy very -weak, lower and accumulat
ing) poultry -very scarce, with market
completely cleaned up at quotations.
W. S. Swank The steamer Elder ar
rived in 'Frisco too late to do any, busi
ness in 'potatoes until today; expect to
night's steamer to take small cargo to
that market ,
Page A Son Car celery and car sweet
potatoes on street today; very little
poultry coming in and everybody seems
to watt it; good demand for veal and
hogs; eggs weaker and lower, v
(McKInley Mitchell Hop market still
booming; expect some change in market
prices soon; potatoes continue dull and
no change is expected for few days.
Toft Ulne A Co. Receipts in all
lines were small today,, but- this being
Saturday and right after a holiday, the
demand was not excessive. The market
is in' good shape for heavy receipts of
all kinds.. Eggs are rather-weak. ;

m NEW YORK STOCKS
Overbeck, Starr A Cooke CO., Portland: The
''year lust oassed haa been a verv eventful one
in the speculative world, especially as regards
New Tork securities; -1903 opened with a very
pessimistic tone, but owing to tbe previous feel
lug, of enthusiasm engendered by record-breaking
prices during 1902, , there were sbsrp rallies
snd recoveries of some moment, until the In
dustrial world began to feel .apprehensive of a
contraction in business, - when the ; market
slumped rspilly and declines of 60 and 75
?)lnts net were scored In tbe more active issues,
his feeling of gloom has been partially dissi
pated of (ate owing to the clearing of the
financial atmosphere through the (allure of the
shipbuilding trust and kindred schemes. Stocks
are again on a level which Invite the attention
of conservative investors (the only class which
cause permanent advantage to speculative hold
lnga), and New York bankers are advising their
ellenta to Ny the better, class of railroad stocks
aa an Investment. The new year doea not opea
auspiciously, owing to rumors of trouble, la the
political world, but tbe chances of this coun
try being entangled are very remote, bence we
ftiel that our1 atocks should not suffer much.
Of course American securities being listed In
London, ama hingiaua irom u account feeling
apprehensive over the situation In tbe Far
East, erratic movements may be looked- for un

Chicago, Jan. 2. Logan Si Bryan ad-
The wheat market was excited and
about 3 cents higher. There -was a1 very
heavy general trade, so large that It is
impossible to estimate the individual
operations. Armour probably sold some
wheat, but it Is difficult to , guess how
much.. War news is the dominant fac
tor. All, other influences being at the
moment subservient. When the war is
onoe begun between Russia and Japan
we can - foresee ' the probable compli
cations. The actions of Russia herself,
in respect to the exportation of food
products, is a matter of uncertainty, as
she has under Jike conditions in the
past absolutely- prohibited, them. In
any event, which ever way the news
turns, an active, irregular market seems
assured and wide fluctuations are more
than probable. In view of this we ad
vise conservatism, both In operations
and in the protection of accounts,
-' Cora a Cents Up.
The corn market closed about 2 cents
higher. Aa In wheat, war was the con
trolling interest There - was a large
general trade, much covering of shorts
and what seemed to be liberal buying
by Armour. Immediate condition of
supply and demand are not potent. The
market is likely to be flighty. We tatlnk
we would continue to buy corn on sharp
Oats Firm and Higher.
The oats market is firm and higher In
sympathy with corn and wheat. There
was not a very large trade considering
the activity in other markets and there
was nothing special outside of general
conditions to note. - ,
Provisions Bharplf Advanoa,
Provisions show sharply advancing
prices, and an active general trade Char
acterized the market The covering of
shorts contributed, but provisions were
affected by the general advancing con
ditlons of other- markets. They are
likely to be controlled very materially
by the political news in the Immediate
