THE MORNING OREGONIAN. WEDNESDAY, JULY 4, 1000.
There -was a lively trade In the wholesale
markets yesterday, and, except for poultry,
prices were pretty Well maintained. The re
ceipts of poultry har6 been eo large that
slocks were offered at ridiculously low figures
in order to make & clean-up. and still there
were 6 large number of coops carried oer.
The wheat markets were dull, with no busi
ness of consequence, Oregon peaches are very
plentiful, and prices are veaScenlng. As usual,
there was a big demand; for Fourth of July
luxuries, and stocks In some lines were pretty
tfell cleaned out. .A. -reduction of 15c per bar
rel was inado on Hour.

KEJW YORK STOCK MARKET.
Strength f.n Wheat ABraln Causes
Weakness In Stocloi.
NEW YORK. July 8. There was an obvious
effort this morning to contlnuo the manipula
tion in prices which set on foot by a clique of
professional traders. The attempt met with
considerable success for a time, assisted as
it was by special influences affecting one or
two individual stocks. There was an active
revival of old and neglected rumors concern
ing dividend prices of a number of railroads
which bare been pursuing a downward course
tor soma time, on account of the general sup
position that surplus railroad earnings would
be conserved' for future needs, rather than be
distributed as Increased dividends. Promi
nent In this class were Baltimore & Ohio and
illsBourl Pacific, which were advanced about
a point or over by active blddlng-up process
during the morning. There was a continuance
of the recent unexplained demand for the
Reading and New Jersey Central stocks, the
latter rising at ono time 2 points.
"Sugar rose with, an appearance of strength,
but relapsed on realizing with the announce
ment of. a further rise- in. the price of the
product. Brooklyn Transit derived some
benefit from yesterday's verdict, in the trial
for conspiracy to discredit the securities of
the company. The early depression from ion
don, where the growing seriousness of the
problem in China had its effect, seemed to be
totally ignored In this market, and had no
Influence In checking the opening advance.
2ot so with the Influence of the wheat mar
ket, which again demonstrated Its dominating
power on stocks. When prices of wheat
were seeu to advance, railroad stocks turned
downward, and found no effective support for
the rest of the day. The general lcyel of prices
fell below last night In the late dealings, but
there were some stocks which retained, small
net gains, though much diminished irom those
at tho high level of prices.
Although the advance was checked, the
gains which were secured In yesterday's move
ment were ;noU.very largely encroached 'upon.
Thfl'taar&ct -during -the latterpart of the day
was dull, almost to the point of stagnation,
there being no disposition to put out fresh
contracts on the eve of a holiday. The money
market was very dull, and not quotably
changed. The bond market moved In sympa
thy with stocks, advancing In the early deal
ings, but yielded somewhat with the reaction
In stocks. Total sales, par value, 040,000.
United 'States old 4a and new 4s advanced
and the 3s and 5s 14 in the bid price.

over night evidently had absorbed some hops
during the night was apparent when the mar
ket opened. They had In mind the fact that
the market had declined lie from the top, and
hence might bs ready for a reaction. The
main Influence at first, however, was the- un
expected steadiness of Liverpool. In the face
of the 3o decline here yesterday. Tho mar
ket Ehowed only a fractional loss, and during
the first trading hours regained some of that.
It was "slsb reported that Liverpool shipping
bids were nearly on a parity wjth American
prices. August wheat opened l$l4c higher,
at 7SQ70c and shortly after, told to 70c.
On profit-taking August reacted to 78c,
which proved to be the bottom for the day.
There were more rains In the Northwest, but
reports from that section In the last three

BOSTON. July 3-There Is little change In
the condition of the wool market here this
week. The amount of new wools coming In
thus far has been small, a great decrease com
pared with last year. This, It is claimed. Is
due to the high prices asked In the West, com
pared with the selling values here. Sales of
territory wools have been very limited, with
pricee nominal. For fine medium and fine, 50
52o scoured would be a fair basis to quote.

MINING STOCK EXCHANGE.
Weekly Letter of "Wnary, Hcnffen &
PORTLAND, Or., July 3, 1900. The
market opened the flrat o tho vrtek.
at about tho closing prices for the pre
vious woek. and throughout showed a
healthy rise, closing strong1, and In aomft
instances with a marked increaso over
the prices of the week before, with sales
of 3S2.000 shares, against 200,000 shares last
We attribute tho rise In the price of
certain stooka to the fact that the show
ing on the different properties more than
Justifies the price at which the shares
are offered, and, also, that Eastern in
yestors are awakening to the fact that
the gold mines of Oregon offer better
Inducements to investors than those of
any other section of America.
The stocks most actively traded In, on
the Oregon Mining Stock Exchange, dur
ing the week, were: Helena, Helena No.
1, May Queen, Oregon.Colorado and Lost
Throughout the week, shares In the
Helena Mining Company were In great
demand by brokers having Eastern or
ders, as "well aB by those who wero sup
plying tho local demand.
Helena la paying dividends of c per
share, payable on the 25th day of each
month, and it Is the intention of the com
pany to Increase them by November ll
Tho shares closed on Saturday at 27V4c
bid and 27-sc asked. Stock bought around
these figures will, at the present rate of
dividends, net the investor better than
20 per cent per annum, not taking int
consideration the advance in the shares
and the increase of dividends.
The Helena Mining Company No. 2 owns
three claims, two of which are located
on an extension of the Helena vein, and
cover an amount of It equal to that
owned by the Helena Company. .Develop
ment has been done by means of open
cuts and tunnels on the vein. There is
some frec-mlllins pay ore in sight, which
hows values of $2S per ton. A site has
been located on which to erect a mill,
and the development of the property is
being, actively pursued. The present
showing on the property is as good, if not
better, than was to be had on the Helena
with a corresponding amount of develop
ment. No. 2 stock closed the week at
4Hc bid and 4?4c asked. "We consider
this stock good for a substantial ad
vanco In a reasonably short time.
The most active trader of tho entire
list was May Queen. This Is a new stock,
having been on the board but Ave dayis;
yet some 120,C00 shares were dealt In dur
ing that time, at prices ranging from 2a
to 2Hc The company owns three
claims, located five miles west of Grant's
Pass, Josephine County, Or. This stock
seems very popular among, local invest
ors, and especially among those familiar
with the property of the company; than
which no better recommendation can be

The Melanoholy Ye-v.
The yew trees are often called the "mel
ancholy yew," a description which Is not
altogether unwarranted, having regard to
the position they usually occupy. The
use of the yew tree In Christmas decora
tions In England Is no new fashion, and
several centuries ago tho yew was moro
largely employed in decorations at East
er than at Christmas. The common yew
tree has a wide geographical range. It
is distributed over Great Britain and tho
Continent of Europe, its range extending
from Norway and Sweden to the shores
of the Mediterranean. It Is also well rep
resented in America and Asia.
