Front Street, Jan. 26. The principal
events tn the local wholesale markets to.
day were:
Creamery butter higher. ' ,
Eggs slightly down. . ?
, Poultry better and higher.
- , Hogs are flVmer. i , t
Veal' receipts nominal. , 1 ' , ..
Hop market muddled. ,
Onions go .higher. ''.- '
. Potatoes & trifle weaker. . ..
'i 'r'Orsamary Butter Xs Up. '
i The 'quotations on . creamery butter
are advanced ; 2 M cents a ' pound or
cents a roll today.' The price as exist
lng today. Is a. trifle stretched and. may
do more harm to the market than any
recent change in! the, price for ' some
time. It will have the effect of creating
a ' larger 'demand for" eastern and - pro
cess.: butter, thus! flooding" this market
with outside product while' the product
of the local creameries will pile up ori
account of Its much higher figure, The
cause of the advance Is attributed to
one- source competition. ,, ; .;r .,, -1
Oompetlttoa Is ths Oanse. "
The creamery butter, manufacturers
of Oregon have been engaged- In a
struggle for life during the past year
and the situation at this moment Is
mors Intense ' than It has ever been.
Rival creamery men have been paying
high prices for. cream in order to shut
out their . competitors and ; this has
caused the prices on cream to assume
a higher figure than the manufactured
price warrants. All the blame has bean
placed on one of the local .butter manu
facturers, but this firm denied that It
has raised prices to keep other cream
ery men from getting enough supplies.
The firm even goes as far ss to, say that
it Is on the very best of terms with its
rivals and that It very frequently buys
its supplies from them. - Ths opposition
men, however, deny this and about a
week ago organised for mutual protec
tion against this One large Portland
rival 4 ; . . ' -'
Poultry Bettsr and, JflgTisr. (
Smaller receipts of poultry and a fair
ruling demand have caused a small ad
vancer in the former quotations. There
Is an especial good call for' straight
hens, ducks and turkeys and fancy
grades are very eagerly sought after.
" Soars Ax rirmsr.
The supply of hogs wss not very
large today and the cooler weather
caused a more spirited,- demand, with
the result that quotations went up to 7
cents as the top and 6 cents for the
low. ; Packing operations are larger.
7;;,;i.:"I,Ysal Xeoelpts Nominal. ',-.,;
There was practically no arrivals of
veal of any kind on the street today $ nd
prices are showing mora steadiness,
with an advance over the former sts.
There la a better demand for mutton
and quotations ar up.
Beef Slidss Tpward.
Meats of all kinds, beef especially,
show a stronger feeling with the cooler
weather. Prime beef is advanced about
Vh jeent a pound. Few spring lambs
are now coming and the demand is large
at present prices. -
Sop Xaxkot Kttddleo. '
Tho hop market is rather complicated.
the transactions jat the present tlmfe be
ing Kept quiet. i. is repurum mil
figure near ths 20-cent mark has been
offered for a very choice lot, but it
cannot be vefified, as the dealers refuse
to talk. The principal transactions,
however, continue to be mads among the
dealers themselves, . but some of them
are getting-rather- chilly and ara aot so
sure of the price reaching so cents as
they were about a week ago. Borne of
ths more timid are inclined to sell and
this ts about all the movement there is.
The stocks of the timid ones are being
bought by the stronger dealers In order
to keep the market steady. :
Potatoes Slightly Weaker.
Although the present printed prices
and even better is being paid for extra
fancy stocks of potatoes, still ths mar
ket has somewhat of a weaker feeling
on account of tho prospective slump
when the, next steamer reaches -San
Francisco. There are now, all told,
about 10,000 sacks' of potatoes on the
docks awaiting shipment to the south,
7,000 of them being left over from the
former steamer. If the entire amount
should go below on one steamer it can
not have anything else but a weaken
ing effect. ' .Local ' dealers are rather
timid just at present, and are not so
anxious to buy as they were last week.
They cannot begin to pay the prices
that are being quoted by ths San Fran
cisco market at present, because it Is
an unusual one and may not last more
than one or two days. At present 90
and. 85 cents is being offered for the
very choicest goods,, country.. ..
. Onions Are Sighs. .
Everything seems to point to a bright
future for ' the prices on onions and
quotations are ' taking a . Jtlmp every
pnee in .a. while. , .Today' the choicest
goods are being bought out In the. coun
try as high as $1.25, but the main quo
tation ruling there is-$1.10 -and $1.15.
For future delivery even higher figures
are quoted. . ,,, . ,
, Steamer Was lata.
The California steamer failed to ar
rive on time, -and it was not until this
afternoon that-the supplies- Of fresh
vegetables and produce - were brought
on the street. There has been a great
bugaboo that several hundred cases of
eggs were on the steamer,- but the en
tire cargo in that line consisted of but
75 cases, 25 oases each for three houses,
A car of sweet potatoes arrived in.
Partners Offering Wheat. ;
The . reaction and lower figures on
wheat in Chicago yesterday caused
larger offerings in this city today by
the farmers. Thoss who have been
watching the Chioago market and have
seen the high ruling figures there were
determined to hold, but thje- reaction
caused them to change thlr minds about
dollar wheat for the near future.

Chicago, Jan. 25. Logan & Bryan ad
vise:. The wheat market cloned Vh cent
higher than the opening. It was ac
tive and extremely irregular. The May
wheat broke early 2 cents and later
rallied nearly 8 cents. , The early pres
sure seemed scattered, but on the break
Armour interests no doubt took the
wheat. There, is the same condition, ot
dullness with perhaps an easier ten
dency In the foreign markets ss hereto
fore. " Primary receipts are under , last
year. . There is little or no activity to
tne cash wheat situation outside of the
domestic demand. The world's visible
supply decreased 231,000 bushels 'for the
week against the December of. 525,000
bushels last year. The Southwest has
a light fall of snow- Broomhall cables
that the European weather Is mors- fa
vorable and their crop conditions are
generally satisfactory, also that wheat is
moving freely In Argentine. - The whole
local situation binges so much upon Ar
mour operations. They are the most
Important factors at the moment . So
long as his ultimate purpose is in doubt
a good scalping .market Is likely. Our
own feeling is that on the. world's con
dltlons ot supply and demand the pres
ent range of prices, which are not man
ipulated, is high enough and- on this
view we are Inclined to think July and
September wheat may be sold on the
sharp rallies.
Oora a Salt Up.
The corn market Is firm and closed
about cent higher. Even with the
early weakness In wheat, corn showed
a very steady tone. The facts remain,
as we have fpr some time past said,
that on breaks corn is a good purchase.
There is 'no selling pressure in1 corn.
There, is ths same small receipts ' and
poor movement. While the cash de
mand is not urgent Jt Is a fairly steady
one. There seems to be corn enough In
strong hands and enough good buying
on the breJks to prevent any decline.
Cold weather throughout' the West
should improve tha quality somewhat,
but so far ifo improvement is percepti
ble. Corn Is by no means cheap, but
we cannot yet sea where any very per
sistent selling is to result
Oats Plrm and Sigh sr.
- The oats -market closed .firm about
cent higher. It Is not so very active,
but like corn, there is not much selling
pressure. Receipts ars not large enough
to make large concentrated holdings suf
ficient to carry the load.
Provision a Shads Up.
Provisions closed a shade easier. It
was quite an. active market. Packers
were again rather free sellers and are
predicting larger receipts of hogs, and
ottr adtlcea from the same source are
that 'there is .a very perceptible decline
in the distributive demand. Outsiders
own the property. Stocks are accumu
latlng. : There is a strong bull deal on
In lard, but' the cash property, partic
ularly the discount on loose lard, hardly
seems I us to justify the present rel
ative , high price. We advise taking
profits , on ;ipng provisions. ,

JAPANESE ORDER
BIG .LOT OF FLOUR
(Journal Special Service.)
Pendleton, Or., Jan, 26. William By-
ers, who operates hero one of tha larg
est flour mills In the inland empire, has
just received an order from, the Japan
ese government for 17.000 barrels of
flour. It is a rush order, and must be
filled Immediately after February 1. The
shipment will be made by way of Portland.
This Is the second large order the
mill has received In tha past three weeks.
The first order was for 24,000 barrels, but
the mill could not make uch a large
output on such short notice and so only
gent out 12,000 barrels. That ship
ment waa made by way of Seattle.
The local mills are not the only ones
that have been asked, by the Par East
ern government, for flour. , The mill of
union county are at present completing
large orders. .
This extraordinary heavy demand for
Eastern Oregon flour has already had
lta effect on the price of wheat, which
has gone, on the local market, up to 64
cents per bushel, a price higher than the
export buyer's can, pay. 'When the first
large order for flour came In a number
of the) big wheat sales were made be
cause the mills had to have the flour.
With thia second large order more deals
are expected. It la estimated that there
are about 250.000 bushels Of wheat In
Fmatilla county waiting to be disposed
Of. Farmers are jubilant over the
bright prnppcts nnil bolleve that they
will again not 7j cenU, the price of
ih early rmukot. 1
