first cranberries of the season came In
this week. Nearly every variety of Ore
gon vegetables is represented in abund
ance, especially cabbage, onions, toma
toes and sweet potatoes. Corn, cucum
bers nnd green peas are about finished.
The demand for all descriptions contin
ues strong, nnd prices aro firm. Oats
are firm. Flour is Bteady, and exports
are light. Millstuffs are weak. Choice
ducks and geese nre scarce. Turkeys are
in fair supply. The chicken market is
demoralized, owing to heavy arrivals.
The grocery business the past week has
been satisfactory, and prices are firm.
Offerings are liberal, but stocks in city
warehouses are largo and there is no
pressure to buy. Shippers quote $1.45($
1.55 for Walla Walla and Valley respect
ively. London cables report cargoes very
dull and nominally 3d per quarter
cheaper. Liverpool spot and futures
were weak and lower nt the close.
