Pront Street, Jan. 9. The principal
events in the loral markets today were:
Sensation in salt.
Oats range upward.
. Hop dealers. try advance. v ''
! . Larger receiptu, in all lines.
" 'Continued dullness in prunes. ' . i :
Ekks will touch bottom. ,
. BenaationjU Obang; ia Salt,
There was something of a sensational
character doing; In the salt market today.
The change Is In the nature of- a decline
from former quotations, but what the
exact figures are cannot be given until
Monday, as the new figures do neVt take
effect until that day. It is known to a
certainty ; that coarse and half ground
salt and table salt of domestic product
will be lower. The cut will be about from
$1 to $2 a, ton on coarse and stock grades
and 25 cents a bale on table salt, Genu
ine Liverpool salts are unchanged. The
cause of the change in the salt market is
due to the activity of the" large number
of independent concerns who have of late
been taking a large per cent of the so
called trust's business in the Pacific
coast states. The new Vates. have been
mode by the Independent concerns and
some further-cuts are daily expected as
both sides to the controversy are deter
mined that the-other shall call it quits.
The independent' men aay that they will
tight the trust to the last and no matter
what figures the large concern quoted
they wilt always meet it and perhaps
go them one better. The printed quota
tions have not yet been changed. , . ; ;
r;-""';; Oavta Kinging Vpward. "'
The prospects of this city landing a
large government order' for oats have
caused the local market to stiffen up a.3
the quotations today show a decided ad
vance, both white and gray pats being
quoted at the same figure,
' ' local Dealers lit Dark. .
Local dealers in hay are in the dark
as far as the government contract for
hay is concerned. It is now said that
the hay will be purchased and shipped
on the sound and that the lower figures
for supplies will be ignored by the gov
ernment. "What is the use of asking
for and submitting bids for supplies to
the government," says one of the local
bidders, "if the lowest figures and the
best goods will not be accepted in prefer
ence to the highest bid and poorer
stocks. Portland was the lowest bidder
for both oats and hay but it is a question
whether we will get the contract or not."
' Turpentine stakes Advance. '':'-. . :
The WV P. Fuller company announce
an advance of 3 cents a gallon on turpen
tine, the hew list to take effect at once.
No other changes in oils are noted.
Xggs to Touch Bottom. '
The egg market is rather shaky at, the
present time and only a very severe cold
snap with its consequent falling off in
receipts will save .. the ' market from
touching the bottom of the ladder at
about 14 or perhaps 15 cents, a dozen.
Just now the receipts are very heavy and
although the outward movement shows
an Increase the stocks are still accumu
lating at a rapid pace. The ranging quo
tations on eggs today are from 2614 to
27 H cents with sales at both figures.
. , Dullness is Proas. '
" The dullness In prunes continues and
few, if any, of the local packers and
shippers expect to make a profit on their
Investment during , the present season.
"We would be willing and I think every
dealer in the city would be willing, says
a prune-shipper, "to sell and clean up
what prunes we hav at the prices we
paid for them, not alone making a pront
on Our investment Most of them would
also be willing to throw in their time in
order to clean up. This talk about the
commission merchants holding back the
prices on prunes is all bosh and should
not be regarded seriously. If the asso
ciation has, as it says, control of about
75 per cent of the prunes of the state,
why do they not force the dealers Into
line and make higher prices. My firm
for one would not stand back on getting
more money for the goods but the simple
explanation of. the prune situation is
that the easterners do not want our
prunes this year and prices cut no figure.
We do not get offers at any price." -Kop
Men Try to Advanoe. '
Now that there are less than 3,500
bales of hops remaining unsold in the
state the local dealers and holders are
endeavoring to boost up prices and scare
the brewers into submission. The prin
cipal doings in the hop market at this
time are between dealers, and they are
buying from one another ths strong
from the weak holders, in order to keep
the market stiff. No sales have been
made over 25 cents. - - -
' Poultry Becoipta Xarger. .
Although the receipts of poultry are
much larger, the demand is quite good.
and with the exception of this after
noon all sales today were made around
quotations. Good hens are very scarce
on account of the fact that the chickens
are just beginning to lay.
Mora Xaats an Coming. .
' More meats are coming, but the mar
ket on all lines is considered good and
the top quotations are still ruling for
all products. Veal is scarce Indeed, and
the prices . look better. No changes in
Opinion on Today's Market, ;
v W, B. Glafke company Don't look
for any ; improvement in butter soon.
Eastern market is too low to admit of
high prices here. ; We have been offered
best creamery at Ogden, at 22 H cents,
i Turner & Co. Chicken demand same,
but the receipts are ' larger and 'there
was enough to go around.
Bell tc Co. Bananas are very scarce.
Rapp 4c Behlbrede Eggs are coming

Mark Levy A Co. Bananas are nearly
out of the market,
Q. 8. Smith company Medium grade
apples in better demand.

Page & 8ons Poultry about' the same;
everybody is after it and price Is good;
Oregon eggs moving off well; business
during week was good.
. McKlnley Mitchell Better feeling in
both potatoes and onions, but market
is not higher; oats are working higher;
hay is weaker. ' ,
Krnlih, Bros. Hogs, both heavy: Bnd
light. In'gooq.demand; veal Of'all grades
Is selling at top of market; poultry high
and scarce;-' mora orders than can fill;
beef and, in fact,-all dressed meats, are
wanted at top figures.
Toft, lllne & Co. Receipts of both
fresh meats and poultry continue to
roll in and out, at prices that border
around the top of the market: receipts
heavier today, and this somewhat weak
ened the tone.. . . .,

ON NEW YORK STOCKS
(Furnished by Orerbeck, Starr A Cooke' Co.)
Melntyre Jt Msrshsll, New York! Speculation
In the stock market conrluuod very narrow
today and most of It waa professional. The
war news showed some Improvement, which was
reflected In the foreign markets and our mar
ket naturally synipsthlxed. There Is a con
tinued alweuee of any ontslde demand snd it
will require the development of something of
an extraordinary bullish character to arouse
bullish enthusiasm and stimulate activity,, ss
there, is '-a well-grounded suspicion that the ad
vance of the last week has been maiiily on
manipulation with s view of creating a better
market to distribute stocks on. The banks
now bold a - total surplus over legsl require
ments on all depostts of $14,686,405, against
$14,810,300 a year ago. ,' (-:. .-.,---
Logan-A Bryan, New York: The market hsa
rnied firm but without special features. Th
Mexican Issues- were well bought and closed
at about the beat prices of the day. The bank
statement ' waa little better than expected.
News from tbe Orient waS of a peaceful char
acter and resulted in a good deal of short cov
ering. Tho market Is nsrrow and almost
"rbolly-rfrofessionsl and for the time being we
look for nothing but a scalping affair at least.

Harrlmau A Co.-, New York; Tbe stock mar
ket today acted very mueh as anticipated. Tbe
Lank statement was fully up to expectations.
Tbe rumor- ot tbe Penoaylvanla-Uould fight set
tlement was widely circulated sud the Im
provement in Pennsylvsnia, Missouri Pacific and
Western Union ratber bore out tba rumor. The
market sbould be. much better next week.
Dick Bros., Cbtcsgo: Railroad stocks showed
good buying. Amalgamated scored another ad
vance and was well bought.' Action of lead
ing stocks indicated that the leading pro
fmlonnls jre working on tbe bull aide again,
Bacbe A Co.. New York: While the general
market ruled dull It was unquestionably strong
and unless something of seriously disturbing
character should occur Mondsy we-look for the
msrxet to do better next week. , . t - -.
Walker Bros,' New. York: Money continues
easy and we look for : a better market and
