.today that many hop growers of tha

several contracts for hop at thnt value

ALMOND VALUES TO BE HIGH

While there does not appear to be
rfiuch grain buying going on. the trade
is active and the market steady. Jcal
mills are buying a little, and thst is
hslping to kp the Portlsnd prices up.
One of the local mills le reported today
to have bought blue stem yesterday
at 86 cents and a deal in Turkey red at
84 cents was also made. In tha last in
stance the price is considered low, as
some of the farmers are receiving better
now for their Turkey rod than for ths
blueqtem.
The market In ooarse grains appears
to be unchanged, although a few lots
are being picked up here and there. Con
siderable excitement was reported yes
terday In the Puget sound oats market,
but there wss no buying.
The mill feed market Is very firm
and some advance is expected. Many
of the mills expected to begin grinding
this month, but they are holding off
because -they do not want to psy the
present high price of wheat. Local
white bran Is bringing $22 now, al
though a Montana grade can be bought
at $21. Exporters are also paying $25
for good country shorts.

Portland again topped the markets of
the country todsy In hog prices, $9,C5
being the prevailing value for the best
light weight porkers. Hog values in
other psrts of tha country were un
usually low, neither Kansas City,
Omaha or Chicago touching the $9
mark. The local hog market cannot be
called firm, ss the receipts are n the
Increase and spring crop porkers will
eon begin to arrive.
Oregon stook raisers sre not beginning
to realize that there Is a strong demand
at the Portland market for feeder
Steers. Ths fcicreaslng scarcity In beef
all over the country has caused eastern
buyers to look this way and Instead of
purchasing thin cattle off tha range,
they are invading the Portland market.
There Is good sale for feeder steers nt
the Portlsnd yards, as the sales of tho
last few days hsve been Indicating.
Another lot of Mount Adams lambs
went out of hoVe today at $5.1)6, whioh is
an unusually good price for this time of
ths season.
