rOIlTLAND, Fob. 1C -Receipts
for last week, cattle, 10J7; calrea,
7; hogs, 3088; sheep, 0800.
This week'a cattle market has
been full of surprises. Tho broad
ened outlet made posslblo bjr actlto
bidding on tho part of killers, Urge
and small, caused a sudden reaction
In heft raluea and the tendency of
the. market points upward. Demand
for prime heary steera waa urgent
enough to make a "seller" market
and the former top of 3.00 waa
mtly obtained. Tho bulk of ters
were of good quality and averaged
J7.C0 to 17.80. Butcher itock waa
firmer although tho prime atuft waa
j-carco. Cowa at ffi.86, helfera at
17.00, bulla at 16.00 and stags at
I0.S0 are extreme quotations for
quality offering, llecelpta haTe been
small compared with laat week and
almost devoid of contract shipment.
Ascendency of awlne prices oc
curred on three dlfereat occasions
until 8.00 was finally reached
Thursday. Aa tho closo last Satur
day waa weak at 17.45 tho upward
flight represents a big half dollar.
Apparently the bulk of awlne bold
lilt has been marketed and while
Public pork conaumptlon la not so
heavy at thla time of year, there are
acarcely enough hoga to satisfy the
demand. Every other large market
Is allowing unusual strength, which
may be speculative. At any rate the
eight cent hog market has arrived
again, even if temporary. Supply
nnd demand will determine future
Sheep house business waa brisk
during the week when opportunity
offered. A few cara of choice year
ling wcthera featured at 16.25 and
several bunches of ewes at 85.15
Mutton demand seemed to be steady
although not urgent. Good lambs
found a ready sale at curreat quota
tions. One lot ot 490 head cold "off
the cars" at $7.50. The extreme
top on prime fed Iambs la considered
17.25 to $7.35. ! ,

Whether tho opposition to the

strong enough to prevent it being
