Portland, June C. Bids to supply
the government with 3S75 tons of hay
and 5621 tons of oats for shipment
to Manila wore opened at the office of
Col. Jcsso M. Baker, local disburs
ing quartermaster, today. There were
four Arms who submitted proposals
for grain, while there was only one
bidder for the hay business.
Nono of them put In bids for the
ontlro amount, and It Is probable thnt
the awards will have to be divided
among them In order to make up the
full amount asked for by the govern
ment. Tho Albers Brothers Milling Com
pany Is the only firm submitting a hay
bid, and It offered to supply less than
half tho amount called for by tho gov
ernment. It Is Inferred from this that
hay is becoming scarce In the coun
try and that It can bo secured ln big
quantities with difficulty. A complete
list of the bidders and their several
proposals are as follows:
D. A. Puttalo offered to supply 500
tons of oats at $27.75 a ton, 400 tons
at $29.75, 500 tons at $32.75, and 500
tons at $32.75, delivery ;o begin at
tho Oceanic dock 20 days after the
nward is made.
Kerr, Gifford & Co. offered to sup
ply 1000 tons of oats at $32.50, and
1000 tons at $32.25. x
E. W. Simpson offered to supply
S00 tons of oats at $30.25 a ton, and
400 tons at $33 a ton, delivery to begin
10 days after tho award is made.
Albors Bros. Milling Company of
fered to supply 900 tons of pats at $30
a ton, and 500 tons at $33.50 a ton;
1000 tons of Oregon timothy hay at
$19.80 a ton, and 500 tons of timothy
hay at $21 a ton, delivery to be start
ed 20 days after the award Is made.

was not upon the advice of his supe
