ber told The Journal this morning, on
his return from Tacoma. "The market
is firm, but remaining holdings are very
hard to buy."
i-There' are reports of a number of
small deals in the Willamette valley, but
they cannot be confirmed. Fourteen
cents has been offered for several lots,
but the bids were not accepted by grow
ers, who are asking a fraction above
this. Many growers are not willing to
sell at all just now, Deiieving tnai mey
will secure a far greater return after
the holidays. ' r '
