Farty in June, from the first to tha
second, butter prices here, stood at 58c
a pound, or- le above the present value,
but this was before the present season
really started, for late in the month the
price had dropped to 53c a pound.''
The highest price ever reached in the
Portland market was on January 9 of
this year when extras in. plain wrap-
pers went to 6 So a pound and remained
there for several days.
The "trade attributes the present ex
' cited tons of the trade and the extreme
prices for extras to the extreme scarce
supply of No. 1 butter at this time.Cube
extras never were so scarce, in the trade
as at this time, due to recent hot weath
er conditions all through, the Pacific
While there is an extreme shortage
of good butter, supplies of ordinary qual
ity are liberal. Storage stocks of but-

Packers Get a
Consumer to , Pay for ' Speculation
in Hide Market.
Br Hrmaa H. Cohem "
The packers are UoS little' bit agi
tated at this time regarding; : the pro
posal of. the. government to regulate
their business, for today they are 'said
to be grabbing down the bipgest profits
known in their history and the pastures
took greener than ever so far as the
future is concerned. If the government
will but let them alone. -If
you have to pay several times the
usual price for your shoes or. other
things that contain a small percentage
of leather, don't blame the packers for,
if you .ask .them, they . have nothing
whatever to do with the problem, ' The
fact that some of them are said to have
accumulated practically the entire take
off of cattle for a period of several
years and are boosting the price of this
stock now, has nothing whatever to do
with the price of shoes. They are real
business men and , are making their
profits while the sun is shining. ' -
They are today paying big prices for
hides ; in fact, far above any previous
recordbut the fact remains that these
purchases do net aggregate more than a
small fraction of the total amount of
hides they hold, most of which wore se
cured at comparatively low prices. "To
boost the price on their huge speculative
holdings ;they can easily pay extreme
prices for the present! takeoff of hides,
for it boosts their lower priced holdings
that much more. ' -:
If you have not bought that pair of
shoes there is no better time than today.

r There appears to be a general mis
understanding: among many " wheat
growers of the Pacific Northwest fit
this time in regard to tho price they
can obtain for their wheat.
The opinion; prevails quite generally
that tho. government is still paying a
premium - over the guaranteed prices.
This is not so, for tho recent announce
ment of tho grain corporation, through
Max H. Hooser, indicates this. The
advice of Mr. Houser, printed several
days ago, is. therefore repeated hare : .
r "The grain corporation having made
only small purchases of wheat : and
movement from farms not warranting
it, there will be no advance in premium
over the guarantee price put on by tho
wheat director before. August 15. , s
"About v that date, another review of
th situation will be made, and an
nouncement follow accordingly."
