FIGHT FOB BUTTER
Chain Organizations Offer
At Cost or Less, Weak
PORTLAND. Dec. 14 (AP)
Another tight for control of tae
batter trade la suggested la late
tactics of- chain. - organisations
which are again making sales at
eost or less In some Instances.
This baa caused an undertone of
weakness In the wholesale trade.
Along with the easier feeling
la butter there Is some weakness
expressed In the butterfat trade
here. The price today Is more
or lees uniform with the former
premium of lc In most cases
There was no change In the
price of eggs locally for the
week's opening although some
weakness continues at leading
eastern and coast points. Stor
age deal Is nearing completion.
There was no further change
In the price for cheese during
the week's opening trade: prac
ttcally all centers quoting, prac
tically a steady tone.
The recent cnt in the price of
Tillamook cheese, which set the
price list for the entire coast, was
the outcome of the local product
trying to maintain a value too
high above what the general
cheese trade of the United States
had been Quoting. As matters
stand Tillamook is still the high
st price cheese of Its type but is
able to secure the Quotation last
All through the lire chicken
trade a weak situation Is reflect
ed along the wholesale way with
practically no further change In
local buying values. Small
springs those weighing less
than S lbs. are weakest
Almost general depression Is
reflected in the market for coun
try killed calves. Sales are slow
and generally being made at the
lowest levels. Hogs are in active
call. Lambs remain slow.
Cold weather has caused a gen

CHICAGO. Dec 14. (AP)
Wheat displayed stubborn back
bone today notwithstanding New
York stock market downtowns.
Practical certainty that Argentina
was experiencing a wet harvest
was large responsible, together
with the fact that stocks of wheat
afloat for importing countries had
reached a dangerous low point.
Besides, the United States wheat
visible supply showed 4,145,000
bushels falling off, compared with
a week ago.
