CASHED COSX H lOOIQtO
Front Street, Feb, 19. The principal
items of interest In ha local wholesale
markets today -were:
Eggs are' lower again. .
More veal la coming. .
Poultry very scarce. '
Fly paper is' down.
Bad prospects for asparagus.
Canned corn Is firmer.
AVheat markets stronger.
Oranges are selling.
Much speculation in potatoes.
Onions are still higher.
Apples show, large movement. , ,
Creamery butter weakens.
All fish are scarce.'
Eggs Are Iower Again.
The! receipts of eggs today again
s)owted a remarkable increase and the
dealers are , wondering where they are
all coming from. There has been prac
tically no change in the weather con
ditions during the-past, day 'or so and
this ..could not account 'for the larger
receipts. The roads are la' no better
condition than they were-several days
ago and this too cannot be the cause
of the large Increase. The general Im
pression is that the farmers have been
speculating upon the market a game
which they very seldom succeed in, for
they do not often dispose of their hold
ings at the top figures,- They generally
wait until the market shows a weaker
feeling and then all the snippers begin
to send their stocks Into the market.
The result as it always is makes
stocks show an accumulation and lower
prices are the" usual outcome. . Today,
though the receipts were extra largo,
the demand was quite good, and the
market moved 'along in fair shape, but
at lower figures. There is no outside
call, for eggs, and all the stocks will
be put on this market Eggs were sell
ing today from 26 to 20" V cents, with an
occasional sale afr 27 cents. The latter
figure, therefore, cannot be considered
a tru,e figure.
Poultry Y.ry care.
Just why the receipts of poultry are
so small is causing a great deal of won'
derment among the commission men and
retail dealers. The quotations all along
the Hub are, very firm and high, and it
is very doubtful if the market can go
much higher, when the price of poul
try goes beyond a. certain figure the
demand and consumption shows a large
falling oft and the market is certain
then to go back to a legitimate figure.
There were some receipts of ducks
and dressed chickens this morning, but
all arrivals were sold couching the top
of the market. r
Jlor Teal is Coming.
The receipts of Veal are showing an
increase, but still the supply is not half
up to the demand..' There is no real
famine' in the veal market, but choice
stocks AT disposed ot at prices . that
sometimes reach higher than the top Of
the market. Good block hogs are eagerly
sought after, but packing stocks are not
so firm. The market on -all grades of
hdgs is considered good, however. The
receipts of lambs are larger. There is
quite a lot of poor stock coming and
this has a tendency to weaken the hot
Fly Paper Is Sown.
. A cut of 10 cents a case is announced
In the former quotations on all brands
of ily paper.
t The California steamer is due tonight
'with a fair cargo of fresh greens.
The orange market is in better shape
with the demand larger on account of
the sweeter condition of the fruit now
arriving. Prices are beginning to . look
Bad Prospect for Asparagus.
The prospects for even a half crop
of asparagus throughout the country
this season are not over-bright. Re
ports from California and other aspara
gus-growing centers confirm the first re.
port and this la causing a firmer feeling
' In the prices. Spot stocks and futures
although unchanged In value today are
very likely to go higher soon. The crop
Is affected by rust.
Canned Corn Xs Firmer.
Last season the crop of com for can'
nlng purposes was very small and few
canners made deliveries of over 60 per
cent of their orders some of them only
sending about 16 per cent of standard
grade. With this condition in mind and
the fact that there is no surplus of
canned corn In the hands of speculators
as during the normal seasons there Is a
feeling among the retail trade 'that
prices will surely go to a high point
even if the crop this year is an average
one. The fact that canned corn opened
this ear slightly higher-than it did
during the previous season does not
affect the situation to any great extent
And wholesalers report that they are do
ing a very considerable business in corn
Much Speoulation la Potatoes.
The prices now being offered for pota
.toes in this vicinity are about on a par
with those being quoted in the San
Francisco market for the same goods,
only that those who buy now and ship
into that market are out the amount
they paid for freight. The situation
in potatoes is very mystifying. Port
land branches ot San Francisco, houses
are offering as high as $1.15 and $1.20
for potatoes of the better grade in this
city while the same stocks are being
sold in the Bay City for the same
amount. It is true that there Is very
little buying of potatoes going on the
San Francisco men being content to offer
snd keep the market firm and the farm
ers holding. One thing Is certain, the
prices now being offered for potatoes
in this city are not worth the money,
the prices in other markets being even
or below this and the local market does
not invest in shipping stocks. .
Onions Still on Move.
The pries of onions is still on the
move and prices that smack of specula
tion and not actual worth are ruling
in this market at present. In this city
as high as $1.20 has been paid for choice
goods while the ruling figures in the
country range from $1.06 to $1.15
hundred. The San Francisco market
stands at about the same figure with no
Creamery Butter Weakens. .
Nothing but -weakness is to be noted
In the creamery butter situation. The
arrival of the storks from California.
which were noted in The Journal about a
week ago, had a bad effect on the mar
ket as everybody thonght they would
have. A drop In all figures is looked
for by butter men. ,
Opinions on Today's Market,
W, B. Qlafke Company Best gYades
of creamery butter are working off fair
lv well, .but off-grades are In bad
sliitue. I '.'
Bmlth Bros. Clock hogs rt coming
in more plentiful these, last few days
than' they have for weeks but the price
holds up wonderfully, well and is even
Stronger; even heavy hogs are selling
well; supply of veal is short of the de
mand; beef of all grades, bulls, cows
and steers have Jumped up in price and
are selling well; mutton has also ad
vanced; good fat,; dressed chickens are
bringing almost any . price the dealers
sk.:rvr .',:- ".-''-.'-'.''.
Bell & Co. California steamer to
night; apples and bananas are- cleaning
up; oranges are moving good. . '
Mark Levy & Co. Steamer due from
'Frisco tonight with usual supply of
Chatterton & Co. Market still good
on eggs despite the fact that receipts
are. much larger; chickens , are very
scarce and hogs and veal are in about
the same condition.
Q. S. Smith Company Veal and chick
ens are strictly in it; eggs are weaker.
Malarkey & Co. No changes at all
in fish; receipts of all kinds very few;
about 100 pounds of smelt came in to
day. I. E. Meikle Dealers are at present
paying too high a price for potatoes; on
ions very firm. .
L. jJaggar -Both potatoes and onions
firm and unchanged in price.
Everdlng & Farrell Chickens are in
better receipt but they are coming none
too lively for the demand and the street
could stand;, great many more; eggs
weaker at lower prices; butter weaker;
hogs and veal continue .in good de
mand. , :
Page& Son Bottom has dropped out
of the - egg market on account of the
extra heavy receipts; poultry Is very
W. H. Dryer Market is firm both for
potatoes' and onions.
McKlniey Mitchell Potato orders are
not so . plentiful and I think that too
high prioes have been offered for pota
toes not paid; onions continue good and
strong. ' ;
Toft. Hine & Oo.-r-Notwlthstandlngthe
large receipts of .the last few days in
our line there is no trouble in placing
all hogs and veal, beef and chickens
that come; the" same is true in eggs.

(r'urnbihed by Overbeck, fttarr A Cooke Co.)
Chicago, Feb. 19. Logan & Bryan
say: The wheat market was 3 cents
higher. The big advance- waa in May
and the smallest In September. It
- clbsed near the top.' The advance rep
resents a force of large and speculative
buying through commission houses. The
reactions were unimportant and the
whole tone of the market was strong
and prices were steadily higher. For
eigners are again all higher and show
increasing activity and strength. Broom
hall .cables that the absence of, Russian
clearances and the political . situation,
particularly the resignation of the
French minister of foreign affairs, are
the points most regarded. It Is a big
market and 'there is . something doing
behind the scenes. Sentiment is still
bullish. We strongly advise conserva
tive operations and trading In July and
September. Modern Miller notes the ab
sence of moisture but thinks little or no
result has followed.
Corn Waa Higher.
The corn market dragged In the face
of the strength In wheat all during the
early part of the day. There was a
good general buying through the com
mission houses, but there were large
liquidating sales, which the pit rather
thought was the selling of a long line
by Patten. There Is a big general trade
and a strong bullish sentiment, the same
as In wheat. The .advance In prices
does not bring any apparent Increase in
the movement, but the cash situation Is
much of a factor In determining prices
Oats Prices Bespond.
The " oats prices responded to the
large commission house buying, which
has not yet stopped. The movement Is
still small and the cash situation is un
changed. Provisions Are ITp.
The provision market Is again 15 to
40 cents higher. There is no change in
the conditions which are controlling
prices. The large receipts of hogs and
the moderate demand are inoperative
against the selling by the packers and
the bearish tendency among the small
traders is wholly Ineffectual against the
forces. There Is, of course, some scat
tered profit-taking, but lnrthe main the
liquidation is only to a moderate extent
and buying keeps up

New York. Feb. 19. The transactiona In
the stock market again showed only dullness ex.
eepttng In a few stocks snch aa Amalgamated
which abowed some weakness on fresh Utlgs

favorable, did not have a decidedly bad effect
on vsluea, but prevented any hopeful reeling.
There Is quite a Isrge short Interest In the
general list, but until there is a decided
change of sentiment there will be so cause for

holders of actual cotton, while many, who bad

SOCIAL CLUB IS
TO BE ORGANIZED
(Journa Special Service.)
Corvallla, Or., Feb. 19. A movement I
that has for Its originators several of
the leading ministers of the city Is on
foot looking; to. the organization of a
club for Corvaills business men, col
lege cadets, citizens and others. The
project has been under discussion for a
considerable time and a committee, com
posed of W. T. Wiles of the First Na
tional bank, Thomas Callan and Monroe
Cameron, has been looking after plans
and details. If launched the new club
will provide a resort where bowling
alleys, gymnasium and smoking rooms
will afford diversion for the wearied
lawyer, merchant or layman; soft
drinks, cigars, confectionery, etc., will
be on sale and an atmosphere of cheer
and homelike comfort will be main
tained. Similar clubs are In force in
many neighboring towns, and that Cor
vaills needs some such resort Is cer
tain. Since students have been debarred by
the college president from entering any
part of the small establishment be
cause of the recent raid and consequent
discovery of gambling games In opera
tion there the college man, with a de
sire for social and physical advance
ment. Is practically without a place to
go where he may spend a few idle hours
in harmless and pleasant pastime.
If organisation be perfected, aa Is
probable, the Corvaills club will be very
much like the Alco club of Albany.
There Is no doubt that the late divis
ion of Corvaills Into four Are sections
will be fruited with good results. Here
after, when a Are breaks out, he bell
on the city hall will noi give th? alarm,
but will, by certain taps, signify in what
particular part of the city the blaze is
located. Heretofore, when the boll has
rung, a general rush has been mnde
for the fire apparatus, and frequently
the firemen have started to the con
flagration without knowing in which,
direction to turn. Consequently there
has benn loss of time and less suc
cess in coping with the fire than will
be the case in future. This step Is an
other In the right direction and follows
the new organisation of the fire depart
ment. Corvallla Sews Votes.
