Dollar Jumps in
Size as Produce
Slumps in Value
Chicago, Jan 25—Produce and
provision men here tonight saw
a break in the defenses of the high
cost of living. Predicting 40 cent
butter and 35 cent eggs by April,
these wholesalers claimed other
lines would begin a decline short
'y
The sudden stopping of foreign
demand was the principal cause
of a Ijreak in the produce market.
Butter led the way down with a
drop from 65 to 50 cents, whole
sale. Eggs fell from 59 to 53
cents.
The market here steadied today
by shipments to Europe and the
$100.000,000 famine bill is expected
to strengthen it further. Still,
there are increased receipts front
the big southwest. Milk condens
ones, with demand suddenly cur
tailed, turned to butter making.
By April, the "home factories" of
the country will find good roads
to market. Observers in Chicago,
believe the dollar once more is
growing.

REPORT REPUBLICAN
FORCES TRIUMPH IN
BATTLE FOR LISBON
Latest Dispatches Say Royalists Deci
sively Defeated; Great Combat
Nears for Oporto Possession.
London. Jan. 25. With a great
battle imminent for possrssoln of
Oporto, the republican forces
apparently have won an important
victory in Lisbon.
A dispatch from the capital, filed
yesterday evening, said the republi
cans were "completely victorious"
at the end <»f tho fighting there.
Previous dispatches said the gov
ernment was preparing for nn out
break by the monarchists and had
erected barricades in the lower
quarters of the city.
Contrary reports received from
Vigo, Spain, said the situation in
Lisbon was developing adversely
for the republicans and that a large
portion of the garrison ha<l de
serti'd to the monarchists.
The republicans have been ron
eentrating forces near Oporto for
several days. Reports from vari
ous sources told of government
warships bombarding the royalist
strongholds. Another Vigo dispatch
said a government airplane flew
over the city, dropping leaflets
warning foreign citizens to L ive
immediately so as to avoid being
.slaughtered.
