' Peache With Dry Boi.'f
Although not anxious to admit the
fact, although they ' have been badly
hurt themselves, the commission ana
fruit trade of Portland Is mourning the
loss of some is. 000 or 4.ooo wnicn will
be lost this season aa a result of being
taken In. Moat of the Front street mer
chants were very heavy, buyers of.
southern Oregon peaches - this season,
and it now happens that most of this
stock waa Infected with dry rot. In
only a few cases did this dry rot ma
terialise until tba shipments had been
In market several days. Even the hawk
era, who aeldom are caught naoDlns on
any kind of fruit, have bit badly on tha
peacn proposition. eoumern uregon
peaches are today selling from $1.2$
dawn ta 40c a box, tha latter for stock
mostly badly Infected with tha rot. For
fancy peaches there Is a most excellent
demand from all sides, and as high as
$1.21 a box Is eastlv obtained. Th
dry rot peaches, according to tha trade.
are just as good for canning purposes
it cannea nerore aecay seta in. . J? or
thin reason It la believed thst most of
the stock will go to canning; concerns.
Creamery Butter Mora TTnif onxt.
Almost every creamery In this city
tootr as Kins- jo a nouna lor its
best product, (this being the oiics set
by the Haselwood company Monday
morning, supplies or cream, while de
creasing quite rapidly,- are up to tha
requirements of tba trsda, because at
the preaent values consumption Is like
wise decressing. Several cars of aaat.
ern butter are already on the way to this
city, but being- bought at high values,
are not likely to be sold at any ma
terial reduction from the local figure.
This year tha competition of tha eastern
product will not ba so great as in for
mer years, because under ths new pure
foods law the label must stats where
ths butter Is manufactured. Thus east
ern butter cannot hers ba sold aa tba
' Bn aad Chlckena Firmer. . ; .
Tbsrs Is a firmer tons in both tha egg
and poultry market today. With the
decreasing supplies or local rancn eggs
tha market has been acting; better for
soma time, and prices alone the street
are much mora unUorm.
Country store butter is very slow in
arriving, and tba price is steadily ad
vancing. . . '
Ths strength shown la the dressed
meat market continues to multiply.
Prices about unchanged. ,
Cheese market continues mixed, out
the tons can be said to ba a trifle batter
- - Sop Bears Continue Work.
Efforts are belne- mada bv soma hop
bears to talk of very noor oualltv for
Ahe Oregon hop this season. This agi.
tation ia being furthered oy a morning
report, which not only says tha crop ia
of poor quality, but talks of a very
heavy yield in order to causa ths grow,
ers to sellvthelr yards at a sacrifice.
Tha same intereata which used the
morning report to spread their bullish
news last year so they could sell out
their cheaD-prlco contracta at a good
pries while tha grower waa holding for
an advance, are now on tha other aids
of the market and are Juat as bearish as
they were bullish a year ago. Reliable
nop dealers say tners is notning but
falsehood la ths reports of big crops,
for, except la a few scattered sections
where cultivation waa carried on, ths
prospects are not for so good a crop as
a year a an. Mow last year's market
went la now a matter of history.

tract, which would enable him to maks
large profits Is ths plan formed by
Ferdinand E. Reed, who. managed th

This contract,. It la believed, would hay

elected' mayor, for Reed has said that
had Devlin . been -successful he would
have had no troutfte in getting the con
tract, and hopes still to get it If the
newspapers will let him slone.
Reed's plan la to form a company
which ha la to manage and control, and
the company Is to secure the contract
to handle the garbaga of the city for
25 years to the exclusion of competitors.
For 10 cents a week from each residence
he plana to cart away the slops, but this '
does not Include carting away ashes and
dry garbage, for whk-h no price Is fixed.
As. Reed's company would have a mo
nonolr on handling: all sarbaae. he could
fix his own price for disposing of the '
