DAIRY PRODUCE HIGH Good Demand for Live Stock Weekly Review by Canada's Leading Expert. The following review oC the markets is writtea specially for the Citizen by the leading markPt expert in Canada. This review is a weekly feature of the Citizen market reports; much valuable information is given; Montreal, June Special) Refer ence has been made before in these letters to the outlook for oats, the prospects in regard to this grain having more than the usual imprest, owing i the f;iuL that the reserve stocks in farmers' hands this spring were larger than usual. Within the past week or so the tenor ot ad-wces; from abroad have- been rather niure favorable to holders of Canal) ian oats. English letters state that good rains and warm weather are absolutely necessary to the growing crop which owing to climatic conditions and the ravages of the wire worm is very backward. in France and Germany also the crop promises to be very poor. Despite this news business in Canadian oats has been very dull at 3"::.4c to II I l- atioat a few cargo lots having been worked at these figures. In fact buyers on the other Fide despite the condition of the growing crop are no j. anxious for Canadian r:its at present, though from lW.HX) to a,fK0 bushels of American oats have been shipped via this port during the week. It is worthy of note also that compared witn tne prices ruling this time last year Canadian oats are very cheap. A year ago .o. 2 white oats were selling m this mar ket at 3rv4 to .tJc afloat, iiased on these figures current prices ought to be near bottom. Indeed, since Monday spot prices advanced lc to 3-c. Business In alt other grains during the-past week has been equally as disappoint ing as oats, lhere has bt tn less enquiry for Manitoba hard wheat, though some business has ben reported at HS1 to OS1- for No 1 hard afloat Fort William, the top figure beintr for the last halt of June ship ment, and today t&c was asked. Export demand for peas has been, backward up to within the last day or so when prices advanced 2e per bushel to bhc, Jso. 1 barley has changed hands afloat at 49c, and No. 2 at 4H These llgures both re present a dfcline. Rye on the other hand has been more active since Monday and is Ho to lc higher at ;2c to til'H-e. Buck wheat has also been placed firmer at SSc he volume of business transacted however since the advance which was In sympathy with Chicago has been extremely light in all cereals on spot. In dairy produce the farmers if till have decidedly the bes-t or thf argument. Everyone expected a reaction in cheese values after the first week of Juno but the contrary Is the case for prices have averagpd fully Mc per pound higher than the week previous with sales of finest western here at 9T to l'c and eastern 9 to !Te. Exports of rh'-pse to date also are in, ibi boxes or a..,H) odd boxes m excess of those for the same period in As prices averaged lc highrr the farmers have realized at least $o,0'.f0 more this year tha:i last. Producers are having quite as good a t'ma in butter as in chpese. sales of round lots having bn noted at HiUc, which Is an advance of and demand i active at the rise. The influences which have led up to this sustained strength In butter have already ben fully discussed and need not h repeated again. Suffice it to pay that there is unquestionably a scarcity of fresh creamery in England, for finest Danish is selling 10s dearer per cwt. than it was a year ago, and it looks at present as if it would be some time before the scarcity would be realized to any material extent. The lirst exports of fresh eegs this season were made last week tn Glasgow and some other lots have ben sent forward to Liverpool. The market is decidedly easier with sales of round lots at 11 Ms to 12e.the latter figure being for choice candled stock. Hot weather lately hus affected the shipments arriving and allowances have hud to be made of from 4 to 9 eggs to the case or 33 to 30 pT cent. Miscellaneous country produce has not contributed anything particularly noteworthy lately. EvajfOrated apples were quiet at tic per pound and dried at 5c these figures being for good sized lots. Baled hav has met a fair demand at JvW to ?9 for No. 2, and ?ft.,V to 110.50 for No. 1. Straw Is quiet at Z.'A to f." as to quality. Offerings of potatoes have been kss liberal but there is no change -.in prices, car lots of choice stock being quo red at Iftc and ordinary 30c per bag of 90 pounds.

White clover honey in ordinary sections peils at 14c to 15c and extracted do In Ifirga tin ftc to and in small 10c to lf'-c. Tallow is quiet at 5V;c for refined and 2 to 2Hc for raw. With a steady upward tendency abroad shippers have naturally been active buyers in the live cattle market here, and during the wvek higher prices have been freely paid. Supplies here on Monday were exceedingly small and of course full prices wpre demanded and readily obtained.

Montreal, June 13 Notwithstanding- the talk of an easier market yesterday, tho transactions upon the country cheese boards show that prices are steady and the! market linn. Sales of westerns were taking place here trnUiy at D 7-Se, and these were supposed to bo on order from England, as local dealers do not care to buy on speculation at present prices. Quebec chtse is quotfni at 9 5-V to a shade higher. Ke-eelpts reiwrted on tho boaxd of trade today were 13.4IJ5 boxes. t'heese was reported t have sold at Ormstown this morning at 9 5-S to 9 U-b, and butter at 19 l-4c. There dn&s not appear to be any reason to look for a declin-e in butter .lust now. Bids of 15 l-4c for dairies in the west were refused, and 15Vsc had to b paid. This makes them worth 17c to half a cent lesg here. Finest grass goods are quoted at 19 1-4 to V or 3-4o here. Receipts reported on the board of trade today were 4032 packages. THE HAT M XKKET.

TRACKS LAID Council Authorizes Another Level Crossing ON THE RICHMOND ROAD Aid. W. D. Morris Strenuously Opposes the Action of C.P.R. The proposed crossing ot the Richmond road by tho C.P.R. was discussed at a special meeting of the ciiy council last night, and the outcome of the session was the adoption of an interim tii"dn which authorizes the company to imme diately place down its tracks subject to a final agreement bein(? executed between it and the corporation. A by-law to sanction the suKgt'sied aeremrnt rewivvd its nrst rcadiiiK. The considf ration of tn.' eo-jfet evoked cuniiderabie discussion on the question of level crossings In pcneral and an outside deputation, which was given a hearing, strongly urged the construction of a viaduct. A feature of it e meeting was the challenging by Aid. W. 1. Morris of Aid. pcolt's vole, on the ground that the lattrr is the paid representative of the C.P.R. At the oncninir of the meeting Mayor Payment explained that the session had been called to specially consider the subject of the C.P.R. crossing the Richmond road juet west of its present tracks. Aid. Morris inquired as to who called tho metimg. The Mayor I called It. Aid. Morris At whose suggestion? The Mayor At the suggestion of AM. Scott. Aid. Knright said liie matter had been j referred to the railway and lighting com- mittt'e. He moved, .seconded ly Aid. Jam? - Davidson, that the question should go to j tile committee. Aid. Starrs wanted to go on with the discussion. He objected to the council being called for nothing. Aid. Champagne moved that the by-lavV to sanction and adopt the agreement restive to the crossing of the Richmond road receive its tirct reading. Aid. W. D. Morris inquired If any communication from the C.P.R. was in t.'ie hands of the city clerk. The mayor said that the only communl cation was in the shape of a propos-d agreement between the city and company He remarked that he had the right to col 1 the council whenever he saw fit to do so. ADD. MORRX3' AMENDMENT. Aid. W. D. Morris then moved an amendment against any level crossing-; being put down at all instmctirr the engineer to have the tracks put down by th: CP.H. torn up. and further instructing that C.P.R. employes trespassing on cor poration property should be prcsecuted. j The mayor ruled the amendment out of order at that juncture. It couid come up' after tha lirst reading of the by-law. Aid. Raphael said that the C.P.R. hoi; put down its approaches and tracks with- out the slightest authority. He objected to that company riding over the council sini-' ply because It had the support of a few of the aldermen. Aid. W. D. Morris said it was bad taste! for Aid. Scott, in liis capacity of solicitor: of the C.P.R. to take Meps to legalize a grumr of trespassers. It was time that i the C.P.R. and its satellites should know that it could not override the interests ot J the city. Speaking of level crossings. Aid. j Morris referred to the difficulty existing ; on Bank street, and opposed any more of thm. He characterized as a scandal that certain members should sit In council to proimote the interests of an outside corporation. SUPPORTS C.P.R. AH. White said that there appeared to be a nigger in the fence on the question. There was a lot of factious opposition to the C.P.U., which was only doing what Mr. J. R Booth had done without any objection being offered. Aid. James Davidson resented the Insinuation of Aid. White that there was a nigger In the fence. He went on to say-that there was no necessity of calling: a meeting of council merely because Aid. Scott, an interested party, had suggested 11. He could not see why the scheme sJiould be railroaded through so hastily. Tho vote was then taken, nnd the lir3t reading carried on the following division: Yeas Aid. Champagne, Davis, Desjar-dlns. Gareau. Hastey, Hewlett, Lapoinie, Masson, Raphael. Roger, Scott, Sllnn, Starrs and White. 14. Nays Aid. James Davidson, Dearlng, Enright. Foster, Hopewell, W. D. Morris, F. F. Morris. 7. ALD. SCOTT CHALLENGED. Aid. W. D. Morris gave notice that at the next meeting he would challenge the vote of Aid. Scott, who was a paid agent of the C.P.R. He also gave notice of reconsideration of the first reading of the by-law. Aid. White then submitted a motion that the C.P.R. be authorized to at once cross the Richmond road with its tracks, subject to an agreement to be entered into, and further providing that at any time before the execution of said agr ment the company shall remove tracks if the council desires it. Aid. M isson t.hought that the city owed the C.P.R. a great, deal. He said it was the only railroad that had come In without being bonused. I'njess the C.P.R. were given its crossing there would be no entrance to the Central depot by the continental trains, which would not come nearer Ottawa than Carieton Place, and w-ou'.d necessitate the removal of several families from the city to that town. Aid. Hopewell said he had voted at the railway and lighting committee in favor of the C.P.R. crossing, but Jie objected to the road runntng things as it pleased and putting down its tracks without any semblance of authority. It seemed to him that when such haute was displayed there were reasons other than the actual urgency of the rae. Aid. Roger thought that when a report favoring the crowing had been carried almost unanimously by council there was nothing seriously wrong In the work being proceeded with. He cited the case of Mr. J. R. Booth, who had extended electrio poles to his shops before council had finally dealt with it. Aid. W. D. Morris said that If he was mayor next year he would take it upon himself to see that railway trespassers were fired off corporation property. He wanted to know If the large fencing between the corpore.tion property and the C.P.R., put up since the fire, had been paid for by the city. The city engineer was derelict in his- duty In not placing a watchman on th Riohrnond road to prevent trespassing by the C.P.R. Mr. Gait, he thought, should be censured. There was. he thought, a White nigger In iha fence, and that accounted for the haste. The council then decide4 to hear a deputation from Hintonburg and Nepean. County Councilor D. II. McLean, who first addressed tile council, said that the interests of suburban residents were Identical with those of the city. He considered that a private corporation was asking very exceptional privileges without guarding the public right. It another j crossing bad to be tolerated a viaduct should be built over Wellington street west. The public use of the highway was now impeded by thrto level cross ings, and the public needed protection. He considered that as a viaduct would do away with the expense of gates and crate men. the C.A.R. and C.P.R. wouW not strenuously object to It. As a member of the county council, he felt safe in pledge ing its support towards helping to defray any expense that w-ouid be involved in such a work. Mr. George E. Kidrt presented a petition from resif)nts of Hintonburg, Nepean and West Ottawa protesting against level crossings, and supported it in an eloquent peeeih. He contended that level crossing were a menace to public safety and an obstruction to travel. In Toronto there were overhead crossings on streets whers he traffic was rot one-third of that on the Richmond road, it was the dutv of the council not to come prejudiced In iaor of any corporation, but take steps to protect the Interests of the public. The C.P.R. had commenced work without complying with the provisions of the railway act. Mr. Fred. Honey also spoke briefly in support of th views of t,he previous speakers. Aid. Scott said that thre company would necessarily have to comply with the very stringent conditions Imposed by the railway committee of the privy council. In order that there might be no great delay-he had smrgestexi the calling of a special meeting. He saw no reason why Aid. Morris should have made the unkind references to him w.hirh he had. The vote on Aid. W. D. Morris' amendment against level crossings and instructing that the C.P.R. tracks on the proposed crossing 1m? removed wns then taken. The amendment was lost, the vote stand ing: eas Aid. James Davidson, Dearing, Enright, Foster, Hopewell. W. D. Morris, F. F. Morris and Raphael. 8. Nays Aid. Butler. Champagne.

Insurance of Corporation Laborers. Tfndrs for the supply of half a million brick for the subsidiary drainage system on the- Glebe were opened by the board of worts last njght. M.ssrs. O'Dell itros. offered to furnisn the supply at the rate o-f $10.50 per thousand; Farley Bros, at J0.35: the Ottawa Fin-proofing Supply company at and the Ottawa Brick Manufacturing company at The tender of the Ottawa Rrlck company being the lowest was accepted. Aid. ,a po-i n t e and G area u const dered that while the Fireproof Supply com-pjny's offer was a little higher than the lowest, its brick was best. The majority however, favored the Ottawa company und its offer waa adopted. The board i.i effecting- an insurance scheme on the corporation laborers on the Glebe drainage, indemnifying the city :igaiiist actions for damages, should any of the workmen fre killed or injured. Sftveral city agents of the Employers' Liability association tendered to furnish r policy assuming all responsibility in the matter of accidents for one per cent. 'f tho pay roll or S5 cents on every Jluo under certain conditions. The Ontario Accident Insurance company offered to furnish a policy for ninety cents per annum, on each $100 of tha pay roll. This company, however, named no conditions. There was a disposition to accept the latter offer, but it was finally decided to refer it to the engineer to report as to the most feasible scheme. Chairman Davidson reported that he had consulted Rev. NT r. Ta?rrrt in reference to his claim against th city and the latter had consented to settle it for 550. At the last meeting- the matter came up and the chairman was authorized to arrancre for a settlement, but last nlgrht tho aldermen objected and threw out the proposition to settle the action on the terms g-gcsted. Max Horwitz, who lives on Nelson street, near Kideau, objected to being: as-se?-ied for thp new sewer on the former f:rect. because he had helped to pay for the Rideau street sewer before his lot was divided. The engineer will report on the matter. A RUN TO BRITANNIA. Senators and Members of Parliament the Guests of Mr. W. Y. Scper Yesterday. Through Uie "hospitality of Mr. W. Y.
