A Reiame of tlm Condition of It Dif
An unusually heavy amount of trad
ing was done in" the wholesale line. Rui
ness in every line was very good.
Receipts of fruits were heavier thnn at
any previous time this season. Water
melons, cantaloupes, grapes and peaches
are plentiful. Produce is coining in
freely, and the market is in much better
condition than it has lieen. Eggs are in
sufficient supply to satisfy the demand.
Rutter has declined 5 cents all around.
The drop is occasioned by large receipts
of Eastern stock. From "now on Eastern
butter, owing to the superior way in
which it is packed, will Ihj carried in
heavv supp y, and the Oregon product
will be forced into the background. If
farmers would use more care in putting
up their butter, it could easily control
the market instead of inviting Kas-tern
competition and thus lowering prices.
The local market has a firm tone in,
sympathy with foreign advices, but
trading as yet is very quiet. Public ca
