PORTLAND. May S (AP)
Tone of the wholesale butter mar
ket was steady and the egg situ
ation remained weak as early
trading got under way today with
ruling quotations on both pro
ducts at the same figures as have
held for more than a week with
Moderate receipts - of butter
were readily ; cleared through
Jobbers to both retailers and
Heavier egg receipts than us
ual made supplies in excess of
demand, and much of the stock
continued to more at prices
slightly shaded under Quotations.
Country dressed meat ' and
poultry markets opened weak
under influence of liberal re
ceipts with more off grade offer
ings than usual. However, though
dealers' supplies were somewhai
excessive, meat quotations were
maintained excepting on real,
quoted at ll-12Vic a pound,
making a mc downward spread
from previous top quotation still
paid for best quality,
j Priee changes on poultry cen
tered on heavy hens, some of
which sold off 1 cent to 19 cents
and white broilers, quoted at 19
to 20 cents, down 1 to 2 cents
due to an, unusual run to small
sizes. . . J
Wholesale fruit and vegetable
quotations were generally main
tained throughout the list except
ing oa asparagus, offered at 99
eents to fl a dozen bunches, up
about IS cents, as result of bet
ter . shipping demand reducing
local market supply.
