Front Street. March 80. The nrlndnal Item
ot Interest In tba Portland wholesale market
toasy weret
fcgg are very scarce.
Poultry being fought for.
Country butter not wanted.. . ,
No Improvement in creamery. ....
Potato situation firming up.
Good onion In demand.
Valley and blue tern wheat tearca.
Hogs scarcest In year.
Some California' salmon arrival.
Short are quoted higher, '
Bhubard hurt cheap apple.
Advanos In Wheat Market.
There Is a large acarclty of milling grade
of wheat OB the Pacific coast and pricea are
showing a wonderful advance. Bluestem I
very scare and thera 1 a general demand
for tM grade from California at well aa
Oregd tnd Washington millers. One Call'
fornla miller writes: "Can von aunnlv at
with tome bluestem wheat 1 Wa need tbla
grade in California very badly and will buy
It at any: price witnlu reason." Quotations
for bluestem are showing a very large advance
and today the miller are vainly offering as
high aa 85c a bushel with no taken. It now
looks a If tb market will ahow (till further
sdvsnces, aa there la not nearly enough wheat
of that grade la the country to auDply tb
demand, .
Valley Touohlng High Plaoaa.
Valley wheat 1 following la the lead of
the advance made la bluestem, and aa In tb
latter the miller are offering today 86c a
bushel with no sale of any consequence re
ported. Valley wheat la vea snorter in supply
than bluestem and price ars bow allowing an
npwara tendency.
Flour Vow look Higher.
Tb market for patent flour it in a very
strong condition on account of the acarclty of
wheat, and a prominent miller thla morning
aid that the present price would surely be
maintained and, an advance in a short urns
1 considered probable.
' Eoga , Boareest la Tear.
The tupply of hoga at the present time
Is very small and stocks are now acarcer
than they bare been in years. The market
will now stand quit heavy receipts, but tbe
dilapidated condition of the average country
road" keep the farmer from lending the itock
intaw All use and gradea of bog are now
being eagerly called for and easily bring the
top price, i
Good Val ta Demand.
There I aa ever Increasing demand for good
Snallty veal and all arrivala today told at
i very highest figures. Tb receipt of poor
grnas veal continue very naiy and l". this lint
lower quotatluna are generally received.
Beef I Vary Weak.
Although there were no change In tha quo.
tatlona on ber today, tbe market la very weak
and pricea era looking lower. Retail butcher
are not in tha xoarkat now tot beef.
Good Mutton I Soiling.
What few stock of Ihn bettor giada ot mat
ron now arriving ar bringing the ton figure.
tut itock. that are not first-class are a drug
on tii market. Pricea show do change
today..
Country Butter Not Wanted.
'Thirlng the past few day there ha bees
quit large receipt of country (tore butter
WMh -the quality lomt than ever. Tb demand
for country store butter today 1 nominal and
generally lower . price are ruling. There
la po Improvement in th fwner wakness of
creamery butter. .
Eggt Are Very Scare.
Although the receipt of egga today wer
larger than those ot yeaterday, tbey made
but little impression on tb street and prices.
If anything, wer firmer and higher. In th
next few day larger receipt In tha egg mar
ket ar looked tor and pricea then are pot
liable to look so well. Tb north l still in
tb market for egg and 1 paying good prices.
Are Fighting for Poultry, -
"Toa see. w hv tb. yellow peril around
hero," (aid Tom Fsrrel, a h indicated a
large group of Chinamen who were clamoring
for chickens. "They all want cblckena aa well
a the whit men and there ia a general scrap
for all arrivala." Receipt! in tbe poultry
market thla morning ware but a repetition ot
those of tb psst few weeks no larger nor
no smaller. There Is a large demand for
chlokena from th northern cities.
Potato Situation Firming up.
Tb potato situation It firming up and th
inquiries tor stock even from Baa Francisco
are (bowing an Increase. There la a fair
local demand. . Aa waa told In Th Journal a
few day ago, potatoe ar not so plentiful ss
they seemed to be about a month ago and
dealer report that In place where they oould
buy a Oosen car in a naif day now tney con
alder themselves lucky It they can obtain mors
than one car. A yet there are no change
In th price, but tba near tutor It likely to
ahow tome change
Potato Xing Baa Arrived.
On thing which (bowed Just how scarce
potatoes were getting even In the 'Frlco mar.
ket wa th arrival ia thla city during tb
week of tb "Potato King of the Pacific Slop"
William Wolf of tha firm ot Wolf A Bon
of San Francisco. Mr. Wolf wa ia tb city
several week ago and during hla sojourn in
tba city price took a sudden upward more
tor nb reason whatever, ltow, Mr. Wolf baa
been a very heavy seller of potatoe In the
bay - ctty market and tbe price he told at
wer below those psld In this market for the
same good. According to rumor Mr. Wolf
old a number of thoussnd sacks of tbeee po
tatoe at a loss, nd th general idea among
th potato dealer of this city I that he 1
now ia this market for no other reason than
to bear the market down so that tho farmer
will become frightened and tell their stock,
If Mr. Wolf can buy tbe available (took tn
this territory white they are cheap b will r.
coup bl losaee many tlmea by boostlug up
price when be hae secured absolute control
ot tb market. This may be difficult,, for. tbe
farmer bav become awar ot the acarclty
ot stocks and ar going to hold tor higher
figure.
Best Onions Ar Belling.
Th better grade of onion ar stilt finding
a firm demsnd in botn tni maraet ana iu
San Francisco, bnt poor grides ar showing
no improvement from their former weakness,
Rhubarb Hurta Cbsap Apple.
Th market for th cheaper grade apple it
being hurt to torn extent by th low price
now ruling on rhubarb, aa tb latter vegetable
la now being tnnr extensively used In tba msnu
faettir ot nl than during previous time on ac
count ot the high price on apple. Th better
grade ire telling very list. .

Wheat wa active. . It hid a sharp break
early on report of rain In the west, from
which market It reacted sharply on good local
buying and good buying by cash grain bouses.
Cablea were easier. Crop reports coutluus con
flicting. There were reports of sale ot rash
wheat from mill lo the southwest at blah
price. This Is really tha strong feature of the
market. There la onlv 1 fair outside spec
ulative Interest, but professionals are as a rule
quit bullish. While, aa we bave before aald,
we are not ready to believe that there haa been
a widespread damage to the winter wboat crop
which normal spring weather will not repair,
till the Immediate outlook la efficiently un
favorable to prevent any vert confident or Per-
alstent abort aelllng. . There is probably also
some speculation to a strong cash position, but
what the cause la, th strung poxltlon here un
til It eases,, will be a' factor. We are Inclined
to thliu therefore that wheat should be bought
oa tb brp dip.
Com Markst Closed Higher.
The corn market closed about 4 to 114c
higher: It maintain it previous " strong tone
and previous conditions are evidently atlll op
erating. There la no selling pressure except sn
occasional raid by local bears and acattered long
interest, wblcn w thing re small, ine marset
ha every appearance of large concentrated hold
ing ana in important anort interest., iuo cnyi
situation la not a factor except lu ao far aa it
does not aeem-likely to afford any great amount
of contract corn. Tbe current reports seem to
Indicate that good corn la so scarce that farm
er ar having difficulty ot obtaining corn good
for needing. W are inclined to think wa would
buy It oa 4b. (oft tpoti. ,
Oat Also Closed Blghr.
Th osta market eloead li to 114 c blither.
It wa not very active and the Improvement
seemed tn he reallv ill avmoathv with tbe ad
vance in corn. There 1 quit a pronounced local
bearish aentlment and there waa some cover
in of shorts from that acurc. It 1 anvbodr'l
market and no leadership 1 apparent on tbe bull
aide. Hecelpta aud demand are moderate.
f Provisions' Wer Heavy.
Provliloni rallied some from tb low point
of tbe day on the r strength in coarse grains
but It was on th whole a neavy niaraet,
Titer waa larger recelpta ot hoga than had
been expected and receipt It tbe primary mar
Icota were lareelv in exceai of a Tear exo.
There waa tome liquidation by acattered bolder
and very Uttle (upport from any quarter, except
coverlug of local shorts on the early break. Tb
whole action of tbe market la not encouraging
and the srjeculstlv situation Is not a strong one.
There Is too much of a load, we thluk, la the
bands of tbe outalde scattered Doiaer.

herself as she faced the bench, .
"Well. I had to eat somewhere," shi
snld. with a recklR amlla. Magistrate

"There Is evidently , an . erroneous
Idea abroad concerning . the' harvesting
of the banana crop," said Edward M.
Watson, who has been for seven years
on a plantation in Honduras.
'The statement that four or five crops
of bananaa are harvested a year is en
tirely Incorrect. A crop Is harvested on
an average of every 15 days throughout
the year. Each thrifty . banana plant
has many suckers or stalks growlnir
from a single root at the same ilnw.
One or more bunches of the rlpeni"
fruit is cut from a single stalk, tile
the other stalks growing from tl, same
root are left untouched, and In 15 days
another of the stalks Is shorn of Its
fruit This process continues Inces
santly during th year. In July till
August It Is necessary to cut off th
ripening bunches every 10 days, while
In December and January about onee
a month la sufficient, the average
throughout the year being practically
16 days."
