There la aim oat an unlimited trade
In potatoea in the Alaskan country
which could quite easily be switched to
.hia -itw wara tha nroner mean a and
palna taken to Induee the change from
the sound. Aa far aa potatoea are con
cerned, the quality or tnoae grown in
Oregon are eo much better than tnoae
- grown In the northern atate that the
change of buslneaa could quite easily be
made, were the local trade to go after
. It with more epirlt Heretofore the
sound haa gobbled up $ per cent of
thla business and haa transferred a
portion of It to thla city specially
when the orders came to aend nothing
but the best Quality. If Inferior stock
was wanted and Alaska wants none
r that tha trade could Quite readily
be supplied from other aectlona. Price
"la no object with Alaska buslnees men.
They 'want quality and to get It they
re willing; to pay , almoet your ;wn

' Up to this time there bar been prac
tically no ahlpmenta of potatoea In any

WHEAT BELLTSQ LIBERAL.
Farmers Get Close to TOe Net for
Their Supplies During Week.
There was much buying of wheat in
the Paclflo northwest during the past
t week. Several hundred thousand bushels
were disposed of at prices that run close
, to TOo net to growers. Moat of th buy-ins-
was for the account of Inland tnll-
lera. but coaat Institutions picked up
quite a aupply ;
ia no nneral movement to sail
among the farmers, because many of
them are of the opinion that they will
IVcure a still higher figure. On the
other hand ouyers point to the recent

On my recent trip to California I
was greatly surprised on finding out
how peeslmlstlo a good many of the hop
growera and principal dealers were In
regard to their estimate of this year's
hop crop. It was the opinion of moat
of them that this year's crop would be
fully 21 per cent short of that of last
f ear's, and some even prophesied that
t would be as much as 40 per cent
short. I did not hsve a chance to go
over any of the yarda myself but from
what I learned from aome of tha dealer
and groware. the vlnea were looking
very elckly. there being any amountof
missing hllfe, and In general they could
not account for the condition that the
yards were In.
I also took a trio through eom of the
most prominent hop sections in the
ktat of Oregon reoentVy and found that
th yarda were not looklnr any too
promising. If tha condition of tha yarda
