PROVISION MARKET CHANGES
Strawybenies showed a drop of J5o
to (Oo a crate along rYont street this
! morning and a similar lose was forced
In the farmers' market.
Along Front street marks and Wil
sons sold as high as fl.to today, com
pared with fl.76ffll yesterday, while
other varieties sold from SI 91. IS.
There were greater offerings of ber
rlos on the Farmers' market this morn
ing and as the canning demand for the
laet day of the week Is alwava poor, the
lower prices quickly took effect.
To enme extent the sharp advance In
the price yesterday was not Justified by
actual conditions. Thers was a. fight
between two buying Interests. One buyer
offered St. SO to the farmers yesterday,
while the other Intercuts, In order to
get supplies, boosted the price to 81. 8S.
Then the first party gave the market a
further boost to S1.SS01.9O. Today the
rarty that first boosted the price yes
erday to 81 S was offering SI TS and
tbere were reports of SI. SO but the other
party refused to take hold. The result
was that the market bean to slump lOo
at a time.

In an effort to aeeura better transpor
tation facilities from the railroads a
meeting of the Portland Livestock Ex
change waa held at the stockyards this
morning. A committee waa appointed
to confer with the state railroad com
mission which will meet at the stock
yards June 21.
An effort 'will be made to have the
Southern Pacific and the Hill lines have
regular days upon which livestock trains
will Iw.run to Portland. At the pres
ent time the Oregon-Washington haa
two livestock tralna each week while
the (Southern Taclfle has one.
The general situation In the livestock
market remains a boat as prevloualy re
ported, so far as boga are concerned,
although In aome quartera there la a
disposition to depress the price notwith
standing the further advaoo In tne
east. There were no hogs on the North
Portland market today and therefore
prlcea were not tested.
At Houth Omaha the market for swine
waa firmer with an advance of 6c In the
price, with tops at 11.06, which meana
17.16 to land at Pacific northwest pack
ing centers. As packers are paying this
price for the bulk of their supplies,
this should be the basis at North Port
land, but the highest pre recently
paid waa 88.90.
At Chicago the hog trade waa steady
with no change In prlcea.

Whenever a Chinese merchant wants
ducks It is foolhsrdy for a white maa

While a week or 18 days ago spring
ducks were quoted very close to 80o a

port given by a big house in July con
