Beror; Hare Extras Sold o f lUflh for July a, TodayGreatest Stocks Ever Known Are Held In ' Storage by the Big, Interests. Further advance of 2e a pound made in the prteo of butter, effective Friday morning:, places the price at butter here at a higher basis than ever before known at this period f the. season, ( even i wartime prices . being ; eclipsed. By . the advancettia price of extras print in plain wrappers has moved to 67c a pound locally. Beat print butter I prices show, per pound, for various periods on this date: " ''"day ...................... 57o - ' . Year ago 4o Two years ago ............ 42c Three years ago ............ 29c 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 Northwest territory.; While there is an extreme shortage of good butter, supplies of ordinary qual ity are liberal. Storage stocks of but- ier vu j uijr x in. uie umwa oiaicb wen 87,720,486' pounds, compared with 47.819, . 035 pounds a year ago for the same period, an increase T for this season of y 83.1 per cent, or the greatest supply that the ice houses of the United States have ever held. Most of this butter Is Bald to be held by big- interests who are - not at all y alarmed over the present high price. ' .

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.

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." According to Mr. Houser, this an nouncement means exactly what it says iso premiums are being paid, but on August 15, It is planned to again review tho situation, and if there is no con gestion at the markets, it is not likely tnat any premium will be offered then. Premiums at any time are paid only to protect the Wheat-growers against loss by holding when he is compelled to hold his wheat because . of - the inability to get it to market by reason of railroad or warehouse congestion at the basic points.. - Pacific coast crop report of - th weather bureau: hindered by excess maisture, wheat and cats in excellent condition.- Ctaii Harvesting and thrashing of wheat, rye and barley progressing; fair yields generally, but failure in some sections.
