ays that all the spring lambs in Idaho
ave been contracted for at $2.50 per
head, to be delivered next spring, and
sheep which will then be two-year-old
are under contract for delivery at $3 per
head. These figures do not indicate any

N. B. Larmour, an active miner of
Gilliam county, has located a coal dis

prairie and North Fork, which he is con

nothing about what he had found for a
time, but quietly sacked fifteen or
twenty pounds of the black-looking rock
and took it to Portland. It was there
analyzed, and pronounced, anthracite

located two sections of land, claims being
taken by himself and seven Portland
parties; He says that the substance
seems unlimited in extent. There is an
immense vein, thirty 'feet thick, and
croppings can be traced for a distance of
2,000 feet. Other parties have seen it

The country at large as well as
state and section owes much of its ma
terial prosperity to Building and Loan
Associations. Every Building and Loan
Association honestly conducted is a ben
efit. We regret to see the disposition of
some associations to vilify and abuse
their rivals. Agents of corporations
struggling for business have published
derogatory reports affecting companies
seeking to secure business. We have
yet failed to eee any good result to an
agent or his company from such publi
cation. We recall various such items.
one of which in particular affected the
standing of one of the most solid insti
tutions that Oregon can boast of. We
refer to the New England National
Building and Loan and Investment As
sociation of Portland, Oregon, which is
a corporation whose unparalleled record
has excited the bitter envy of its rivals.
It is a fact that the New England is on a
firm and prosperous footing. That it is
honestly and skillfully managed. That
during the last sixty days it has- sold
over three hundred thousand dollars
worth of stock a large proportion of
which was bought for investment. That
the New England has daring this period
added to its assets over twenty thousand
dollars in first mortgages. This corpor
ation publishes the following invitation.

The Dalles Markets.
Thursday, Jan. 5. 1893. Trade for the
past week has been very quiet, partly
owing to the weather and partly to the
stringency in money. A general com
plaint is made about the closeness of
the financial condition of the country.
The call on brokers for money to make
payment on forfeited railroad lands,
which is limited to the third of Febru
ary next has quite exhausted the surplus
in the hands of those who- loan through
agents, this is a reason for less business
among our dealers. Prices have not
changed unless it be in sugars, which
have declined in San . Francisco and
Portland recently. Other staples con
tinues to move on old prices. '
Produce is in good supply, except eggs,
which continue scarce and prices remain
steady. Potatoes are being held for bet
ter prices by farmers, and the result is,
large shipments have been made from
west of the mountains, and prices are
without change in quotations.
The wheat market has hardened and
from recent foreign and eastern advices,
the markets are firmer and present an
encouraging outlook for better prices in
the early 'spring. Valley wheat has ad
vanced two cents per bushel, at Salem
and Albany. At Portland quotations
remain steady, with a better feeling for
movement for export. Dalles market is
quiet and former quotations remain
steady with hardly any transactions . at
the warehouses or mills.
