la the local ereamerr butter market
an easier tone la prevailing. Arrivals
of butter fat show a heavier volume
and the output of butter is therefore in
- creasing. Several creameries here are
t still quoting their best product at 17 He
a pound, but would like to drop to 85c
If they could without seeming to give
in to th other a However,- there is no
real weakness in the market only
. growing dullness on account of the un
5 usual., high figure for this tliti of
year.. According to a large local manu
' faotuYer there was recently a sharp ad'
vane In the price of butter at eastern
; points, but the local market is so far
' above the eastern quotation, even with
freight addpd, that the outside fluctua
tion has practically no bearing upon the
' 'local situation. In any eventK the gen
eral opinion of the trade la that butter
prloea should go to a lower point ana

So firm Is the local egg situation
that some dealers easily maintained

Kaatern and cold storage eggs are being
"withdrawn and forced into competition
with th local fresh product. This is
all that is keeping the local fresh stuff
from going to a roucn higher point. -
Cheese market la easier again, with
th trad not so anxious to buy on ao
count of th high values. While prices
are atlll being held very high at Tilla
mook county points, the tone Is easier
ther becaus or in smaller Business

low to admit of any reduction in value

Heavy rainfall and high winds through
portions oi Wisconsin
Chicago. Aug. 80. Th wheat market
opened weak on a fractional decline In
Liverpool cablea, but th latter advance
mere caused sharp advances swith . con
siaeraDi snort covering. Foreign buy
ers took ad van tag of th recent weak
ness in American price and bought
hard winter wheat wherever it was ob
tainable. Th fact that there is so much
damp grain tr&t must be moved at one
has undoubtedly swelled the currant
receipts tar above .the nominal.
Corn is in lighter supply in the local
market than has been known at this
season in a great many year. Shipper
ar having th rreatest difficult v In
getting cargo lots together and om of
mem win b unani to mset their Au
gust shipping contraeta.
Iowa and also
and Illinois ar creating considerable
bullish sentiment In oat. There 1 a
good call for cash oat for ahlpment
at price H to 1 cent higher.
Broomhall cabled from Liverpool that
he expected a heavy decrease in Liver
pool wheat stocks th coming week.
