Barley Steadily Advancing.
Tbe barley situation Is a very firm one and
prices are showing constant advance all over
the coast. In this city today the quotatloua
are moving upward so fast that dealers them-,
selves sre finding if bard work to keep tab
on the market. The demand for barley la un
nsually large, and with tbe farmers holding
for higher figures,, storks are scarcer than for
many years. The varloua governments are now
In the market for barter and aome heavv buvs
have been, lately reported. The Russian gov
ernment during-the past week or so has pur
chased large supplies . In -the ' San Francisco
martem. ana as the larger portion or the atocka
bought came from tbla market, the withdrawals
bave caused a abortaga here. Prices on the
mala are about 31 a ton higher. The market
etlll looks higher. .
. Eggs Show aa Advance,.''."'..'
The egg market la very firm today. Receipts.
considering tbe fact that today la Monday, were
Very large, out a very strong demand enabled
the dealers to- keep everything cleaned np at
top figures, and some of them sold st an ad
vnuce. Tbe outside demand for eggs Is simply
enormous, and many orders have daring the
past nair week been turned down on account
of . the lack of supplies. Prices today ranged
rrom uft to it eenta a dosen. i .
Poultry b Banging Tp. ;;''''.'''
Tbe poultry receipts, unlike those In eggs.
are very email, but the demand Is showing
sn Inci-esse , again. The temporary dullness
which ruled along the street on Saturday baa
paaaed away and all tbe dealers were In the
market today. Hens sre especially In demand,
but evervthlng - in the noultrv line of fair
quality, la eagerly anapped op. Prices are a i
trine nign and so advancea in thla line are
now looked for. They are sow so high that
the ordinary family cannot afford to bur. and
ahould the receipts show a large increase prices j
wouio onaounteuiy go a level . where ths
consumption would be general.
Package Coffees Are lower.
Both Lion ami Arbuekte brands of parkas
roast coffees are quoted down 60 cents' a hun
dred pounds today on account of the weaker i
reeling and tbe lower prices ranging In the
New York market. Tbe market here does not
show any tone at all.
.Good Brooms Are' Higher..-.': -.v ; y.
A scarcity In the aunolv of the better arra da
of broom corn has caused several late ad
vances in broom prices on the coast. Today
the better grades sre quoted 25 cents a dosen
higher. Ordinary grades were not effected,
but the advance In the better grades will cause
a larger call for stocks and prices will likely
advance In that line also.. .
' Better Grades ef Heat SeU.
-During the past half wee there has been
very large receipts of ve(il along Front street
and most of . the arrivaia Have consisted of
very poor stocks. Better grades of veal ars
not coming so faat and find a good call at top
figures. Hogs are again In large demand -with
top prices ruling.' All aorta of flgurea are
ruling la mutton, but tbe beat stocks do not
show any reduction. Beef ahowa aa average
sale. . .
Previsions Are Weaker Again.
- Both tbe local and tbe eastern provision
irsrkets are showing ' Weakness. Hogs sre
not quoted so firm In the eaat and provisions
during tbe past few d.ira have sold off from
the former prices. This marxet baa not yet
ten attected In the matter of prices, bat if
the ssme conditions should continue In the
east a drop In values la anticipated. - Hams
and lard are Included In ths weakness.
, Oysters and Fish Soaroe.
The recelpta of oysters from Shoalwater bav
showed a slight Improvement this mornlug,
bnt still tbe market has not half enough aup,
plies for tbe demand. Olympia oyaters sre also
scarce. Halibut came in more lively, but
demand was sufficient to clean np everything
at former prices. There la plenty of salmon
In the market. ,
The hop market la very dull, nothing being
done In either the spot or contracting market.
The brewers still stick to their former atate
ment that they are not in need of any Im

are. It la still a waiting game with both sides

present printed prices may be said to be nom

There, is no business being done with the
Orient st all now In the flour line. No in
quiries are being made and tonal shippers say
that none are expected for some time. Mean
while the local demand for floor la harrtiv

The whest market Is very dull on aeeonnt

sre not paying stocks to any extent. The farm

New York, March 21 Logao A Bryan
say; i Stocks Prices sre closing a little "higher
but on the whole the market la without a
cbauge. London was a buyer. There la, of
course; profit-taking throughout the list but
It ia not on a large scale. Tbe outside ta
buying conservatively, naturally awaiting soft
spots. , Traders raided steel stocks on the
ruuior of small earnings snd decreased divi
dends. Such rumors sre as eaay aa lying.
Prices stllj look attractive and the general
situation ie healthy. The short interest is by
no means eliminated snd we think they. are
wsltlug to buy stocks on the soft spots.

Chicago. March 21. Logan and Bryan say:
Wheat Liverpool did - not respond to tbe
atrength here Saturday and there were further
rama in central and eastern ivansaa. iui
made quite a good deal of pressure . from
liquidation and prices weut off sharply," rally
ing, however, some at the close. There was,
we think, rather good local buy log of wheat
on tbe break. : The fact that the visible
December 471,000 bushels against a December ot
J, 000,000 bushels last. year shows the dupli
cation of recelpta at rbe primary markets.
Tbe situation is dull In cash. The same Is
true of tbe demand for flour. . Reports con
cerning the growing crop are somewhat con
flicting, biu the cnmplalnta are not numerous
or wldeapread. We do not feel particularly
ouillsD on wheat at the present.- It, however,
had. a sharp break today and, there are plenty
who are bullish on thla break and on the
growing . crop. We are Inclined to tblnk it
won't hart to buy wheat on the breaks, but
only for moderate profit -;
, Reaction ia 'Cora, . . f
In corn it was quite a reaction. It sold oft
sharply In tbe early part ot tbe day. Tbe
May option,' however, seems to Show the effect
of - concentrated local holdlnga It rallies
rather sharply from the breaks. There is
a good deal of bearish sentiment and selling.
The cash situation is by no means a satis
factory one. but the bulls seem . to think the
scarcity of contract stuff - will help and the
light movement for the two weeks to come
way add to their side. '
. Oats Close Lower. '.
The cats market closed c lower. It Is on
the whole very steady and there Is a fairly
good undertone. The . Patten Intereata are
bearish but , the cash business seems to be
pretty brisk. Offerings are light and receipts
are light and there la a fairly good cash
demand at encouraging prices. 7 .
'.:..' Proriaiona React at Cloee,
On the early weakness In grain provisions
showed a greater decline but reacted sbsrply
before the close. There wae further selling
by outsiders but the stuff seemed to be taken
by local operators and packiug interests. Ke
celpts are liberal and the distributive demand
is moderate. We do. not feel bullish on tbe
outcome ot provisions ss we think the country
Is fall of hogs and that the atocka will go 00
accumulating. Tbey have, . however, had a
good decline and a steadier market at least
is probably due. ,

COMM3SSI03TEB M1SAACS HEPOBTS
THAT COHSITZOHS ARE PAYOR
ABX.B POB EXHIBITS PROM EAST
ERH C03IMOHWEALTHS WILL
UAXS ANOTHER TOUB.
Eastern states are discovering that a
1905 fair will be held in Portland and
In many cases are making; appropria
tions for suitable exhibits. The corpo
ration this morning- received a letter
from C. H.; Mclsaac, special fair' com
missioner, who is Interesting eastern
states in the 1905 exposition.
Mr. Mclsaac writes that March 17 h
visited Baltimore and met the Mary-
land Louisiana purchase , commission.
They favored an appropriation and
promised to assist In securing this. On
the day following he met with the state
senate finance and house ways and
means committees and discovered that,
while an additional appropriation to the
St, Louis fair would interfere seriously
with a Portland donation, the commit
tees agreed that the 1905 fair should
receive, a small appropriation.
Mr. Mclsaao later had an interview
with Governor Herrlck of Ohio, and
found that the additional 'appropriation
of $12,500 secured by 8t Louts had
made his way a thorny one, but the gov
ernor Insisted that Ohio should be rep
resented, and Senator O. F. Hypes was
Instructed to prepare a bill appropri
ating 10,000 for an Ohio exhibit.
Mr. Mclsaao states that Virginia has
decided to use the unexpended St. Louis
fair funds for the Lewis and Clark ex
position. This will man that there will
be no appropriation, but the legislature
will set aside a sufficient amount to se
cure the removal ot Virginia's exhibits
from St Louts to Portland. New Jer
sey Is regarded by the commissioner as
a doubtful state. Massachusetts Is said
to be In good shape and favorably dis
posed toward the lair. New York will
give $25,000 of the 340,000 appropriated
to the western fair, and will vote $25,"
000 more at the next session of the leg
islature. . Mississippi will not partici
pate,, aa her legislature faces a big bond
Issue and will cut expenses to
smallest margin. , Mr. ' Mclsaao will
probably make another trip over the
east In the Interests of the fair before
The suit of Thomas Byan to recover
$1,000 damages from F. W. Hemsworth
was heard by Judge Sears In the state
circuit court this morning and taken un
der advisement. In his complaint Ryan
alleges that he was shot by Hems worth
and wounded so grievously that he has
since suffered greatly, both mentally and
physically. The alleged assault oc
curred In August last year. -
Tbe defense of Hems worth is that as
a member of the local ponce force he
arrested Kyan for 8, crime, and that the
latter broke away from himfcand fled.
He was outrunning the officer, accord
ing to the statement of the latter, when
In pursuance of his duty Ryan was1 shot
and capttjredJ'' . ; '
Ryan declares that he was arrested
without a warrant and .without any
charge having been placed against him
because the policeman without other rea
son than malice accused him' of fre
quenting an opium den. He denies that
he, attempted to escape.
CARTY BURGLARS ARE
HELD TO GRAND JURY
In the municipal court this tnornlnsr
William Dean and Harry Richmond ad
mitted that they robbed the residence of
W. A. Carty last Friday night of valu
able liamonds and other jewelry, and
they were held to await the action of th
grand Jury In bonds of $2,600 each. Ed
Wiley would not admit his guilt but was
held under $1,000 bonds. '
The three men were arrested last Sat
urday night by Detectives Day, Welner
and Vaughn, aa published ia The Jour
naU yesterday. The officers had been
looking for them for several weeks, but
could not get sufficient evidence to war
rant the arrest, until they caught them
with a grip full of the plunder from the
CJarty residence. Prior r to the capture
the . detectives named, as well as Ser
geant Hogeboom, now working In plain
clothes, had trailed the men - all over
the city. - '.
The trio have confessed to other bur
glaries here, although Saturday night
they denied additional crimes. The of
ficers believe they have the men who

TO HAVE NEW BRIDGE
' ,, Pittas, and estimates have been nearly
completed by the city engineer for a
bridge to replhce that across Sullivan's
gulch which fell with a crash last Sat
urday. The old bridge was closed for
the first time in September, 1902, when
it ' was considered , unsafe. Persistent
usage, however, on the part of unwary
pedestrians and others caused a second
closing of tbe bridge in December of
the following year, when a barricade
was placed across, the entrance at both
ends. Last February 8 a solid barri
cade was erected. :.. " - . .
"I think the people desire a substan
tial bridge, one that will be permanent
and safe tor all time," said Councilman
Sharkey today, . "I am In favor of a

good bridge rather than a cheap one.
The dearer one will be the cheaper In
the end. A bridge to cost $60,000 would
be cheaper, in 'my estimation, than one
costing $15,000, because the district
that would pay for It would be largely
Increased, and the charges on property
owners who will have to pay, no mat
ter what kind of bridge la buflt, would
be no higher If a first-class structure
were erected than If a cheap bridge wers
built." . i ... .
