The chicken market Is showing shad
ed prices owing to the continued ac
cumulation of holdings along the street
. Hot only are present arrivals not find
ing a reajy tale at the extreme price
recently quoted but some stock has been
carried over from last Saturday af
ternoon owing to the Rlack , call.
. While as high as .17o is still being
nominally quoted for fancy hens, stocks
that are ordinarily considered first class
ere selling in a limited way down to
The best demand for hens at this
time is for the Jewish Kaster, which
occurs next Sunday, or a week previous
to the regular Easter. This call Is con
fined entirely to extra fancy stock and
tlisre is only a limited amount of this
quality available. Ordinary off.rlngs
in the hen line are not good enough for
this trade and are therefore not wanted.
Dealers along Front street have been
holding their prices high in the hope of
v-lng able to unload at them. The con-tlnued-iiuUaess
in the trade has fright
ened sorce of them and the result is
the shaded figures.- Even these are too
high to bring out general buying. The
btst day of the week for chicken buy
Ing, Thursday, showed little call.
DRESSED VEAL REMAINS WEAK
. While practically all the dressed veal
arrivals- of the past 2 hours have been
taken care fby- buyers, the market
continues rather weak at the , lower
range recently quoted. ..........
Dressed hogs are firm at the prices
-""SALMON IS VERT FIRM
Rome very fancy salmon is now being
offered in the local market and sales
are reported as high as 20c a pound.
Market for halibut Is firm at 10c a
POUnd. - .;r... ;
Oversupply of rasor clams continues.
CHEESE MARKET NOMINAL
The cheese market is auoted Bom
liml today at 22Hcf623c a pound. The
schooner Delia arrived from Cloverdale,
, Tillamook county, with about 100 cases
during tne past 24 nours. .
BI TTER ORDERS ARE UNFILLED
Orders for butter are not belnr filled
promptly by local makers, owing to the
neiter aemana man supplies, trices
remain very firm at S5c for city cream
POTATO MARKET EASIER
A steadier tone is showing in the lo
cal potato market but selling Is more
liberal by growers. No change Is noted
in tne California situation.- Bales are
being made by growers at $1.651.75 for
extra choice. j

The egg market Is firmer and sales
are generally reported at 21c a dos.i

der this figure sre generally for "dir

culled from the regular shipments which
have gone into storage houses. .
Storage operations are Increasing
somewhat owing to the expectations of
a high market early in the season at
eastern centers. More dealers are pry-
paring to put away local eggs for early
storage consumption than ever before
and this is what is holding the price

Francisco and the market there Is as
high as here.
So far as the regular demand is con

the present price of eggs here or else

A sharp advance ot!25o was forced In
the hotf market at North Portland to
day for one load of extra fancy light
stuff that was considered No. 1 for
block work. The animals averaged 1S8
pounds and the price was $7.60, com
pared with recent transactions at $7.25.
' The advance here today places the
Portland market closer to the figures
where shippers say that it would be If

higher prices than this are being paid
by packers In the territory east of the
Rockies, and by the same people who
are not paying so much here.
The advance bf 26c in the hog mar
ket at North Portland was a Dleasant
surprise to shippers but was an old af
fair ao far aa the regular trade was
concerned. As much aa four days ago
it was current-report that th. price
would be boosted -to- $ 7.6ft- at -North
Portland during the latter part of the

Another new high record was named
for swine- in the markets east of the
Rockies today. With total offering

day a year ago, it was but natural that
packers should become frightened- 'and

At Chicago there was an advance of
6c In the price of hogs. Run for the day
was 16,000 head, compared with 23.000
a year ago. Tops sold In the yards at
$7.87, this price being obtained for heavy
stuff, while mixed loads of quality went
aa high as $7.85, yesterday's highest
Kansas City had offerings of 4000
head for the day. The market was very

The only shipper of a full carload of

was Robert McCrow, the regular, who

by Dixon & Hunt- The market forthese

With tha recent Improvement In the
