Importation of Southwestern Cattle
and the Finishing Off of Local Fed
Animals for the Market Responsi
ble for the Slump In Price of
Beeves on the Hoof,
Fred Phillips will ship five carloads
of cattlo to Carstens Brothers, of Se
attle on Monday next, and four car
loads on Wednesday. He also lias
five cars contracted with Gibson, to
bo delivered at Kenwlck on the 20th
of this month.
Four of the cars woro bought of
Illnolmrt, three of Urlgham and two
of Hoach Brothers; some woro also
purchased from Suntzler. This is the
shipment of Monday and Wednesday.
The stock market, both as regards
cattle and hogs, has almost hit tho
bottom of the prlco bucket. Some of
tho stock bought In tho recent sales
only brought ?4.35 as a top figure,
and around this llguro It hovers ubove
and below, as the condition ot tho
cattle varies. Only a month or less
ago tho quotation scaled from $4.25 to
$4.75, and cattlo were scarce at that.
Now all kinds of stock can bo
bought at $4.2n4.nn.
Influenced by Importation.
This fact Is duo In great measure
to the Importation of Southern beof
to 1111 tho shortage. Perhaps a month
ago thoro may have been a shortage
or at least tho growers did not con
sider their stock ready for the buy
er, hence tho market kicked the
beam. The buyers did not feel Jus
tified In paying tho prlce3 asked and
went elsewhere. Thoy bought cheap
cattlo In California, Texas and even In
Now Mexico and Indian Torrltory,
and shipped them In. Tho hole In tho
demand was filled and naturally tho
price In tho local market fell. Or It
might he that the Oregon producers
saw that thoy could not hold out
against tho cheap beef of the South
and decided to let their stock go for
what was offered Instead of trying to
force the market.
But whatever tho reason, tho mar
ket is low, and all tho buyers have
no difficulty In filling their orders.
Local Herds In Good Condition.
The cattle, too, nro In good condi
tion. Thoro is a largo number of
growers who have fed hay until grass
came, and then turned their herds out
on green ranges to finish for mar
ket. As a result, tho beef Is fat and
sweet and in good demand. But thoy
waited too long to get tho prices
out of tho branches of tho market
tree; they aro sprouting now down In
the reach of all.
