DAILY EAST ORBGONIAN, PENDLETON. OREGON. TUESDAY, APRIL SO, 1101. PAGE SEVEN. CLUB WHEAT AT ! hlui TWENTY GOES TWO CENTS ABOVE SEASON'S IMIKVIOI'S RECORD No IUuchIciii AVliont I on the Mar- kt't Hurley MakoH an Advunoo of Two Dollar a Ton Groutcst Ad yiiimv In it Single Day V.er Made livestock of a Good Quality Is in Di'iiiiinil Murkct In Almost Fam-Hied. Portland, April 19. There was an advance of 3c a bushel In the bid price of April and May wheat deliv eries on the Portland board of trade today, although the asked price was moved up nn additional cent a bush el today. Cash wheat market Is excited, al though but nominal trade Is shown because of the small offerings. Gen eral sales of club were reported dur ing the past 48 hours nt $1.20 a bush el, f. o. b. Portland, which In reality means $1.18 track. Thta Is 2c a bushel over all previous quotations here for club wheat this season. There Is no bluestem wheat offering, so values on that grade are nominally quoted on this page. Greatest Barley Advance, Today's cash barley market shows the greatest advance ever made In one day here. Both whole and rolled barley show a rise of $2 a ton. On the board of trado today bar ley futures were very firm and high er, April going to $1.55 bid and May $1.57 Vi bid. Alfalfa hay Is about $1 a ton lower and a similar decline Is noted In clover. Timothy, especially eastern Oregon. Is scarce. Usually there are 12 to 18 cars of hay on the track here Monday morning, but this morn ing there were but 5 cars. Potato .Situation Improves. The expected Improvement In the local potato situation has materializ ed, and because of the shortage at country shipping points, local buyers are paying as high as $1.40 per 100 pounds for best quality. The market has recently shown a better feeling In the south, and the best quality Is es pecially firm there. In the Front street markets practically no change In value Is visible, although holders have shown a disposition to ask a fractional advance of late. Good onions are scarce In the lo cal market, and while only a sale or two of extra select are reported at $3 per 100 pounds, the general market Is firmer around $2.75 for best. There has been an Increase In the call for Texas Bermudas, although the lo cality of local best Is to be preferred so far as to keeping is concerned. Livestock Demands. The Portland livestock market Is all but famished for good quality es pecially and therefore a better prem ium Is being paid by killers for sup plies. That It pays to ship the better class stuff to the local market is again proven by actual sale. George Kohl hager of Roseburg. an old-time ship per to this market, sent In a load of stuff late Saturday that showed the desired quality, and so good was the price obtained that the trade would not allow It to become public In fear of exciting all other shippers. While It cannot be definitely stated what the premium paid was, it Is un derstood to be 10 to 18 cents above former extreme prices for the present season. So good Is the demand In the live stock market that even ordinary stuff Is not neglected as It was during the previous week. Market Summary.
