Chicken Receipts Ar Vary Hoary.
The supplies o( chickens along the atreet
this morning were quite beary. Tbe demand la
rather light and even at tbe present low prlcea
tbe market la weak. The trade doea not seem
to care much (or chlckena and tbe demand will
likely rule amall until after tha holidays. There
la a great ehortage n( both tame gees and
turkeya and demand for both la rery good at
tbe top printed price. Wild game la coming
In rather fast again, but the demand la (airly
good aqd but little difficulty la experienced In
dlaposlng o( tbe receipt at former prlcea.
Sgg Market Barely Steady.
The market for fresh Oregon egga waa barely
steady today but no rhangee were made la
tba qootatlona. Tbe receipts, although not
large, ara plentiful enough at tbe preaent prices.
There, la now no outalde demaqd for our (reeb
egga aa tbe Puget sound market hare recently
ahown a big slump and ara now practically tbe
same aa oar own. In the cold storage grades
tbe only one showing actlrity are tbe aelecta.

Orders (or Onions 0 tan lag.
Some orders are now being recelred (or
onions. For theae the dealer will be able to
pay from 82.10 to B2.3B. but tba latter price
la aa exception. Tha market here is firm but
unchanged in price.
Fancy Potatoes Quoted Firmer.
For (ancy Bur bank potatoe the demand la
showing an lmnrorement and prlcea are firmer
around the dollar mark. Dealers her com
plain a great deal on account of the action

and sometimes better, quotation can be ob
tained bere. San Francisco can use nothing
but tbe best Oregona at tbla time and la not
Cylng more than $1.10. With practically 2io
leht charges the consigners do not recelre
aa good returna aa they do at borne. Tbe

All through the hop market a better (eellng
ta rating. Thoee dealer who ware so dnmplsh
a feerdaya ago are now falling Into line one
at a time. Some (ew ordera are being recelred
(rom the egat on a knala of about 2c for choice
and the' other In proportion. Tbe English
market, according to -lateat cable, la aald to
be better with mora buying,

On the next outgoing ateamer to thp hay

cargo o( flour and (eed. The market there baa
a netter appearance, iiu i. ui.u...
Nothing la doing in tbe orient. The wheat
market remains quiet. Prlcea unchanged.
Arrlrala af Dressed Hoga Ara Keary.
There war beary arrlrala of dressed hoga
along the atreet today and the market waa a
trifle weaker (or tk poor stock, but (or the
good remained unchanged. A coneldersMe
amount of poor-grade real haa been coming o(
late and. these bare aold at lower prices. Fancy

THE WHKAT MARKET.
(Fnrulahed by Orerbeck. Starr A Cooke Co.)
Chicago, Dec. 16. Logan A Bryan aay: The
wheat market ruled strong all through the ses
sion. Tbe strength In tha New York markets
caused extenalre short corertng. Tbe Mlnneapo
Ua market ruled steady, muring an adrance of
l '. 1 -ndl linns underlying tbe market, aa
we ae them, are maintained. At the moment
wa aee nothing to warrant a bull market In
wheat. It la a trading market with good awlnga
In eltber direction.
Elerator Concern Buys.
In corn tba feature of this market waa tba
persistent buying by a prominent elerator con
cern, which seemed to bare an unlimited order
In the May option. Tbe strength Induced a
little an-rrt corertng. but no demand appeared
from tbla source. We continue to feel that
May corn, under 46c pressure, will not hurt
much to buy. The market la largely a scalping
affair aad rerp professional.
Oats Market Helped.
Snort core-ring and tba strength In other
markets continued to a amall adrance in oata.
The market held lta strength all through the
session Tbla market la likely to be Influenced
by tbe action of tha corn market.
