demand for veal and hogs.
Pressed beef found poor sale, .... ., ,
Batmon catch good And then bad.
Hullbut la down. jVlth Jn.rge recetptA
Vegetables are generally lower.

Many cars of watermelons arrive.
Flour la generally firmer.
Much speculation on- chlttlm bark.
Old potatoes arrive la bad shape. .
New potatoes alow In arriving.
Egg market holds good tone. '
Butter is feeling slightly better.
JLa Avalanche of Foaltry Arrives.
An avalanche of poultry atruck Front
street during tha early part of the
week and It was not until the price had
fallen several cents that the market Set
tled so that the dealers cared to buy
at any figure. It Is a fact that poultry
this year sold at much higher prices
Fthan during tha previous year. This re
duced tha demand to a largo extent.
As before the arrivals consisted most
ly of springs but all grades, even hens,
were weak at the prices maintained be
fore the drop. - There ta still a limited
demand for turkeys and large young
ducks, but small, ducks or geese of any
slie ara a drug on tha market and In
order to sell, the-dealers have to shade
the printed quotations considerably. -
Hack Demand (of Teal aad Bogs..
. For dressed veal and hogs the demand
this week was vary large and tha re
ceipts were small. The cooler weather
was tha principal cause of the Increased
Ipqulry' while tha former slump , In the
market wag responsible for the small
ness of tha -receipts. -A-ood -market la
generally expected by the commiasion
merchants durlnAtho coming" week.
Prices during the last six days showed
SreeSed Beer Bard to Ball,
What small shipments of bull beef
arrived on the street during the week
found a very poor demand and tha best
of that received sold at lower figures.
There is a limited call for mutton and
some for lambs.
Salmon Oatok Showed Changes.
For one or two days this-week there
was every Indication that the run of
salmon would be large, when all at once
the catch fell off and the packers are
again lamenting the passing of another
season when the catch Is not up to
standard. Halibut cam In larger sup
ply from the sound and prices were cut
twice Ho a pound, "
vegetables Are Generally lows.
Oreen corn was In much larger receipt
from local points and the price showed
several declines. It Is .expected that
tha bottom of the market will soon be
reached. Tomatoes from The Dalles and
the Willamette valley as well as from
California were In larger supply and
prices moved down -several notches. -A
large shipment of tomatoes came -from
Sacramento today but the vegetables
were refused. String beans are again
coming In large supply with the de
mand good at former prices. '
' reaches Come at Close of Week.
AIL. through the week with the ex
ceptlon of today there waa s a . great
shortage In the supply of peaches and
prices moved up about 20o during that
period. Today peaches cafne from every
direction, every house having a supply
larger than the demand. Lower figures
are anticipated during the ' coming
week. Nearly a dosen earfoaas of water
melons cam In this week and on ac
count of the over supply and the cool
weather the price is a fraction down.
Peach plums are coming more plenti
fully. The price is too a box. Several
carloads of bananas came this week
and found a good market. Good oranges
are scarcer than over and prices are
higher., , There Is also a scarcity of
good lemons. It Is near the end of the
cherry season, and this week's arrivals
were not of good quality. Wild black
berries are -coming faster, but are not
In good shape. Boms fine quality Qrav
ensteln apples from The Dalles found
good sale, while California stock in
indifferent shape Is not meeting with
so large a call. - - - -
- Flow la Senerally Firmer.
The flour market Is fast awakening
and this week the inquiries from the
orient for flour were larger. Most of
tha calls came from China but It Is be
lieved that most of the - stocks - will
eventually find their way Into the land
of the Japanese, The aelsure of the
Portland -orient 41 liner Arabia the first
of the week has somewhat frightened
the exporters, but they have not yet de-
clTned any order for flour at tha quoted
flgureA ' -
Bow Wheat Z Coming.
There Is not much activity In the
wheat market, the only Item of Interest
being that the new ctpp has begun to
move toward the warehouses. Some
small purchases of old wheat are still
being mad to fill In." Prices show no
change. -v .
afock BoeoalatloB ta Chlttlm Bark.
Although generally speaking there
has been but little encouragement in
the market for chlttlm bark for the
dealers to become excited and bid up
irlcea. It la nevertheleas a fact that
during, the past week as high as to a
pound was paid by local dealers out In
the country while 'the highest figure
they could receive for the stocks waa
ttc, with the easterners not very anx
ious to purchase. Many carloads of
chlttlm or cascara bark are annually
aent to the eastern states and to Oer-
many. The bark la found In large quan
tities in the state of Oregon and in
"Washington. The present ruling
prices on chlttlm sre So and t!o .a
Old Fota toes Arrive In Bad Shape.
The potatoes which arrived during the
week were not of good quality and
sales were few' even at the tower prices.
New potatoes from local points are not
coming In so , fast, , farmers - are
giving, them a chance to mature. Sev
eral cara from California, among them
being a car of new gafnets, arrived this
week. Prices are generally down and
are ruling from $1.76 to 11.85.
Tone of Bgf Market Qood.
The .egg .market this. week, was but
repetition of that of the former six
days; that Is, strong. . The receipts this
week were slightly larger but a better
demand" prevailed. A carload of east
ern egga which arrived two weeks ago
haa been cleaned up. Cooler weather
has caused the arrivals to-eome in bet
ter shape. ' V . .-
Butter Is Feeling . Slightly Better.
There la a slight Improvement In the
demand for creamery butter and a
small Increase In the price is expected
within the coming week If the recejpta
do not ahnw too large an Increase. .
Borne of the dealers along the street
this week were asking, and receiving In
few cases, A slight advance over the
printed prices, but this wag only oa
brands that have many years' -reputa
tion for quality. Store butter Is not
coming very fast, but the demand Is
not large and with prices a fraction
Bop Contracts at SO Cents a Found.
Quite a number of hop contracts were
signed In tha Willamette valley during
the week at 20c a pound.
The augar market la very-firm with
aome slight advances In the east,
i' The hide . trade ; Is showing a good
tone with prices unchanged.

'FRISCO WHEAT IS
NOW RANGING UPWARD
(Bpeojal Dtapatch by Leaaed Wire to Th Joaraal)
San Francisco,. July 80. The principal
feature of the Ban Francisco markets
today were: .
Oalns tn wheat and barley options.
Spot prices better for both. - ) '
Oats firm; hay easy to steady. -Corn,
beans and rye unchanged.
Flour trade Is active.
But little changes in fruits. - '
Butter, eggs and cheese without
Poultry market is steady.
"""December wheat had another advance
today and closed lo per cental higher
than on Friday. The spot market was
also steady and was quoted He per cent
als higher. Th Improvement here has
oeen on home conditions as well as be
ing prompted by advices from abroad.
The crop In this state Is a short one and
millers have become active buyers. In
Chicago wheat waa firm on. July, the
ahortage and . wet weather In the west,
It was an up and down market there,
weakening' on reallsltlg but closing a lit
tle higher than on Friday.
, Barley Xlgfeer All .Around.
Barley was higher both on speculative
and cash account, the market acting In
sympathy with wheat and also being in
f luenced by light receipts. . A fair quan
tlty of oats arrived and prices were
firmer. Hay and other articles were
without quotable change. .
There were good shipments of flour on
Friday and today. The movement for
the month of July waa quite -large.
There have been only sllg-h, variations in
prices very recently and today was but
a repetition generally of the preceding
day's buslneaa. The market has been
congested with poor fruits The ship
ping demand would have been enlarged
of late bad the desired fruits of choice
quality been more -plentiful. -
.Potatoes Continued Weak.
The market continued uvealr for vtn.
tatoes anfl'onlona, but the reduced prices
have prompted A better demand.! Unless
the market Is soon relieved of a large
quantity of tomatoes dumping will have
to be resorted to. There was no demand
whatever for small boxes. . Peppers were
also In exoesslve supplyas well as cu
cumbers end summer squash. Bweet po-
Uatoes sold on the wharf at IH to I
cents per pound. String beans were, al
Butte la Better Shape.
- The butter " market appeared to be
getting into better shape. - and soma
dealers who had been quite conservative
were of the opinion that the coming
week would see an Improvement. The
same also applies to eggs. -

residents of that section of th country.
Ther - ar several' thriving towns and
