Values Are Strong With Only a
; Limited Supply Coming For
ware; Better Feeling Is Shown
for Fancy April Storage.
: The frenh egg market la very Strong
locally and receivers afe today securing-
42 Vic a dozen for all candled
goods. Receipts of fresh eggs con
tinue very light, and while the .ea1
in bot extensive, the wants of the
.trad' are not being supplied.
l'Rh buyers are offering from 38c
o 40c a 'dozen for fresh ranch stock,
hilt say they are unable to secure
more than a very nominal euppiy at
these prices.
Market for the best Aprils is rather
firm with values generally ruling
.round 3oc. although it is atatej that
a cent above this is being obtained in
a Jim I ted way.
Ordinary storage stock is holding
steady around 3031c a dozen, but
th call is much more limited than
for the better class offerings.
Chinese eggs continue neglected
from 18c to lo a dozen here.
Weaker feeling Is shown generally
In the chicken trade along Front
street. Some stocks will be carried
over into the coming week. These
consist entirely of small hens and
large springs, for which there Is only
a limited caJL
A shipment of 60 crates of Tokay
. grapes being sent from this city to
centralis has been condemned as un
fit for food by the local fruit In
spector. It Is stated that another big
supply out of the same car from Call
fornla wHl be condemned today.
Very quiet tone Is shcrwlng In the
tocal onion market with "further free
-offering iirom California at lower
prices, A mail advice from. San Fran
cisco states that there is likely to be
nine cnanca ror uregons there this
season on account of the bin crop In
me souin.
While ther hv hern ntilt fair
receipts of ducks in the local market
luring the last week, demand has
been at low;ebb and some stocks re
ceived at the start of the week are
aim eeing neia. .
, . While the demand for ordinary
'-"dressed hogs Is not brlffk along the
street, there is quite a good call for
. fancy offerings and the price is being
maintained ' at '. generally. Veals
continue rather dull.
' : Very ow sale of apples Is shown
i the Front streets trade. This Is
especially true of Willamette valley
tockr which are not giving satisfac
tion. As the price asked is little dif
ferent from that which better quality
If selling at. the call Is confined al
most exclusively to the latter.

At Last Moment They Fail to
Beat Market Down Farther and
Are Forced to Pay 11 and 11 He
for Best Stuff in the Valley.
Quite heavy business has passed In
the hop market at Willamette valley
points during the fast 48 hours. Shorts
nave been covering their octoDer ae
livery sales and transactions in the
valley have been reported as high as
1114c a Dound for the better class
Charles Werner of this city is re-
fiorted the purchaser of the Roy Mor
ey lot of 400 bales In the Silverton
Bectlon at the extreme price, 1114 c a
Another Silverton aale, that of
August Elton, 140 pales was report
ed this morning at 11c a pound, but
the name of the buyer has been with
held. George Yergen of Aurora sold 298
bales to another buyer at 11c a pound
and several more sales were reported
in that section around the same price.
A noticeable feature of the trad in
the hop market during "the last 48
hours is that -while there has been
an excellent demand from parties sup
posed to be short, at extreme values,
poor and ordinary quality has been
entirely neglected. This indicates to
the general trade that someone has
been selling heavy supplies short for
October delivery and being unable to
force the market down further, has
been rushing to cover at the last min
ute. These higher priced sales should not
be taken as an indication that the
market for hops is better. Such is not
the case. Latest reports from the east
Indicate that brewers are not purchas
ing additional supplies' at this time,

what they had purchased previously.
Chicago Wheat Is
Fractionally' Lower
Market Firmer and Higher Early;
Bullish Liverpool Trade la
a Big Factor.
Chicago, Oct. 31. While closing
prices for wheat were Vic a bushel
lower than yesterday's finals, the
market showed considerable strength
at the outset Foreign markets were
sharply higher for both spot and fu
ture delivery and the sharp advance in
the price of cargoes influenced con
siderable buying here.
Broomhall cabled from Liverpool
that the wheat market was strong on
American strength and unfavorable
weather in Argentina. Heavy takings
are reported of all offered cargoes and
parcels of winters are being paid for
at the rate of 4Vid and Manitobas at
3d advance.

All through the market for mutton
so far as good quality is concerned,
there remains a rather strong tone in
the North Portland yards. No arrivals
for the day were noted.
Poor stuff has been neglected of late

at home until it is available for the
killers. Some of the poor stuff from
the interior shipped to this city re

fed there for a later market.

Pay 75c in the Country.
The market for .potatoes Is beginning
to show signs of life with purchased
of a few carloads of extra fancy Bur

ping points.
Several cars have been purchased
recently and shipped to San Srancisco

if they can purchase extra good qual

Forthcoming Opening of
at San Francisco Renews Interest in
Be Established in This City. .. .
The establishment of the regional
bank for the Pacific coast at San
Francisco, which ts xpected to occur
during the coming month, has J re
newed interest In the branch bank
which will be established In Portland.
Bank officials of this city say that
the early opening of the branch "bank
after the regional Institution la under
way is practically a necessity, con
sidering the laws under which the re
gional bank members will be forced
to operate. While it is true that
much of the local business can be ac
complished through the banket San
Francisco, still there will be so many
questions regarding loans and dis
counts coming up every day that a
branch will be found to be an lnsrne
diate necessity. ;
Directors to Be Selected. t
Officials of the . San Francisco jf
serve bank will appoint four direcf
for the Portland bank. These may be.
bankers or other persons, the Choice'
being optional. In additoln to these
four men, the government will ap
point three directors, but It Is under
stood that these must not be con
nected with the banking business.
The seven directors will have charge
of the selection of other officials of
the branch bank. There Is much
speculation regarding the quarters
that will be secured for the- Portland
branch of the regional banks. A num
ber of locations have been mentioned
In some quarters the Impression pre
vails that the old bank building of the
FlrsJ National will be used
First National at Portland.
In this connection It Is rather Inter
esting to note that Ve First National
bank of Portland was tKif first na
tional banking Institution located west
