THE MOHNING OEEGONIAN, WEDNESDAY, MtJST "S, linn?.
Hesry receipts of Oregoa: peat2.es vas tha
feature of business oa Frost street yesterday.
The Early Crawford from Southern Oregoa
are emlng In Quit freely, and most of the
dealers are of the opinion that this -will be
the best -wek for putting ,them np, as the price
Is about as low as It will be this season. Some
very fine stock .sold yesterday- at GO cents per
box, and nothing was cold above 60 cents. The
crop Is not larre, but as they are coming In
& bunch, the price Is lower than It otherwise
would be. Aside from produce liner, th-re
was not much activity in the market yesterday.
Egg are lower and butter Is- firm. Poultry
is In only moderate demand, but it Is too
early In the week to fully determine the courso

Extreme Heat Cannes tlie General
Wat to Be Reelected.
NEW YORK. Aug 7 The recent disposition
to refrain frost operating In sso;ks and to
await a clearer development of the prospect
"wsj reinforced today bj the extreme heat.
which reached a. lwrt Inducing prostration on
the floor of the exehanr With the excep
tion of occasional execution of orders in a few
Flocks "where special causes were at work, the
lUt was almost woolly neglected During the
early part of the da) some considerable de
clines were e-tabHshed. but when the room
traders came to close up their contracts, tho
losses were in large part wiped out. Ths
tnjst conspicuous individual movement was in
Xtlted Stales Rubber, which Jumped .3S from
the early low point, not long before the close.
Pun'flonent was --istted as a result upon the
shirt interest, which rushed to cover, making
eome show of Animation in stocks.
Northern Psciftc s large increase In earnings
for the fourth week In July brought realizing,
end the xrMigers -were heavy oa the Weather
Bureau's weekly crop report, showing need of
rain in the com belt. The steel stocks sagged
on the further reductloa In the price of lroa
warrants. Some of the re-ently inactive stocks
eowed wide declln. Including Chicago Great
Western. Lake Erie & Western. Iowa Central
and the local traction stocks. Same of the
ear'J selling was based on the beginning or
t!-e gold export movement. Engagements
amounted to oaly about $2,500,000, whereas
the tiSHrts yesterday pointed to $4,000,000
and urward. Jlaports from London were
that the Bank C England -was now giving spc
c &i iacIMUes te attract gold from New York:
CiUcrwls It U cot probable that gold -would
nave. rose out at today's figure for sterling.
The rate for demand sterling fell back a
fraction, as a result of sales of bills against
gold exports. It is announced however, that
more gold, will go out Thursday. Today's
shipments are supposed to have been to cover
the reculred deposit of 5- per cent accompany
ing the applications for war loans.
American subscriptions are credibly reported
to have exceeded $50,000,000. or the- entire,
amount of the bonus offered. The allotment
by the British exchecuer of i5.000.000 of the
10.000.000 Issued for the United States would
therefore insure American bidders about 50 per
cent of their applications. Future payments
are required on August 15 of 20 per cent; on
September 14 of 25 per cent; on October 15 of
25 per cent, and on November 15 of 25 per
cent, the bond being lssud at 08. This would
make it feasible to distribute the remittances
over a considerable period; but there Is also a
prevision that the Installments may be paid
In full pra or after August 15, under a discount
at the rate of 3 per eent. No Information
can be obtained as to how remittances will be
made, and 'this confuses the estimates as to
the future effect oa the money market.
Gold continues to accumulate In Now York
on payments by the Subtreasury to the banks
of drafts on account of gold deposited at Pa
cific points. The banks have gained from, the
Subtreasury since Friday 52.CS2.000 on this ac
count. The money market Is therefore little
atTected by the gold exports.
Bonds swe dull and irregular. Total sales,
par value, 5825.003. United States 5s declined
in the bid price.

Knasns City Jndse Decides Anralnst
the Grain Quotation Monopoly.
KANSAS CITY. Aug. 7. Judge John W.
Henry, in the Circuit Court today, granted
the Christie-Street Commission Company and
the Brokerage Grain Company, both of this
city, a permanent injunction restraining the
Western Union and the Postal Telegraph Com
panies from discontinuing tho sending of grain
quotations to complainants. la his decision
Judge Henry held that "the quotations of tho
Chicago-Board of Trade are impressed with a
public Interest." and that telegraph com
panies handling such quotations must dellier
them to commission companies that desire
them, whether they be sent by parties oper
ating leased lines or be contained In private
Judge Henry held that, being of a public na
ture, these Quotations , could not bo conertd
to prHate use to the exclusion of the public
they had become Interwoven In tho grain and
stock trade of the entire Western and North
western portions of tho United States, and
that the knowledge of them had become so
essential to dealers in agricultural products
that, deprived of them, thousands of dealers
would be compelled to go but of business.
The result would bo, the court held, the con
version of the Chlcaro Board of Trade into
the most gigantic monopoly in the world.

CHICAGO, Aug. 7. At the opening in wheat
and for a few minutes after exceedingly ll'.ely
business was done, compared with tlw alim-at
ut'o.- stagnation of recent sessions. Ejiily
quotations from Liverpool furnishd a big
surprise to local traders, showing an advance
In that market of l13gd. The advance was
said to be due to exceptionally bad weather
all over the. United 'Kingdom, greatly Inter
fering with harvesting operations. Oisning
quotations in September ranged from about, c
to a full cent over yesterday's closing prh.es,.
tho range being from 7Gc to 70c. But
there thendvance stopped, and It took but a
few minutes of the heavy realizing which
startel at once, to forco prices back quite
materially. Offerings for some tlnie were
heavy, loiig wheat coming' out In large quan
tities, prlrclpally from local holders, though
houses -with foreign connections were also
prominent In the selling.
There wtre apparently plenty of buying or
ders on the market at 78o and under, and
the marke was not often allowed to go below
that firure up to the noon hour, the lowest
point touched up to that time being 75c
After noon the market, which had gradually
become xtremely dull, became heavy also.
The crowd was evidently long, and the mar
ket declined to 75ic, mostly from Its own
weight. Shortly before the close liberal export
eales gave a better tone to tho market, Sep
tember advancing to 70Uc bid, where it oleraed.
Corn was dull for the most part, but Arm
at all times. September closed 54c higher,
Oats, quiet but steady. September closed
c higher, at 2122c.
Provisions were 'steady, with a fair general
trade with packors the best bujers. Thcro
was some outside demand, presumably influ
enced by the Government demands for msats.
There were no now disturbing elements as re
gards the yellow fever -outbreak. At the close
September pork was 2c higher, and lard and
ribs each 2c higher. '

THEY FOUND A LOST CITY.
Sew Mexico Yielded Treasure to -Ex-plorerp
for Evanstori University.
Important discoveries, from which the
Northwestern University, at Evanston,
111.,' "will benefit, have .been made by a
party of. scientists which reached Santa
A building of 1200 to 1500 vooms, only
oria of which .was, excavated, was found
in Pajarsto canyon. The structure is oSfx.
450 feet, and constructed entirely of care
fully dressed stone. It Is situated between
Bland and Espanola, and is only one of a
large number of similar ruins. '
The 'structure was two or threo stories
high originally, but .now only walls six to
10 feet hlfrh remain standing. The upper
story evidently was open to the sky, and
upon this the dwellers of the building
probably spent both night and day.
But it is the finds in the room 9x12 that
was excavated that are the most suggest
ive of the civilization of the ancienfpeo
ple. An old furnace or smelter was found,
near .which was an. old iron bar dejp y
lncfusted with rust; also pieces of, rich
copper ore, as well as gold ornaments and
Pieces of potteryi of great beauty and
brilliancy ot colors were in the rcom.
They were heavy,, fully one-quarter of an
inch thick, and- decorated Inside and out
with.uniQue designs showing some degree
of-nmlformity . One of the designs repre
sented tho picture of three- frame build
ings, with a smokestack and smoke cur
Ing out of it. Each communal building
had a -different set of designs for their
pottery. Some woven cloth was found. It
was woven. In spirals almost like a huge
Around 'the fireplace in the room which
was excavated stood a dozen iarge pots,
each with buffalo bones in 'them, showing
that the inhabitants abandoned the room
while preparing a meal. Near some of
the smelter slag was found scorched corn,
together wltK the bones' of birds and oth
er animals. Several baskets in the room
were 'mora beautiful than those woven by
the Navajo's of today, but they crumbled
to dust when touched. Iron knives, stone
battle axes, polished ctone reflectors,
awls, several musical Instruments Includ
ing fifes, were in evidence and well pre
served. "Many human bones were found
In the regulation burial mounds.
The scientists who made the discoveries
are: Dr. George I. Cole aid Fay C. Cole,
of Los' Angeles, Cal.; Professor R. "W.
Bullej of Greeley, Col., and the Rev. G.
S. Madden, of Blasd. They annouice that
the reljcs found will be sent to the North
There are hundreds of similar ruins in
the 25 miles from Bland to E panola,
showing that In the district at one time
llyed more people than are in New Mex
ico today. The region has .not yet been
touchedby scientists and explorers.
Entrlnnd Is Impressed.
A few figures showing the Immensity
of the wheat crop In the United States
and the" cost of producing It may be of
Interest. The harvesting machines made
and sold In one year would form a solid
procession from Chicago to Now York
City, or wduld almost construct a fence
around England and Scotland. "The twine
used in tying the bundles would reach
around" the "earth 500 times, and the
freight cars necessary to haul it would
make a train 50 'miles long. The saving
by'thevuse of machinery in each year on
American farms would more than "pay
the national debt of Great Britain.
