THE MOBNISG OtfEGONIAN, MONDAY, JUNE 2, 1902.
COMMERCIAL AND FJNANCIAL NEWS
The week and the month went out together
Ba urday, and, with a perplexing political cam
pa -gn absorbing muoh attention, conditions
Wre not conducive to a heavy volume o traUo.
lx-l retailers bought sparingly, and orders
Jr n the country were somewhat smaller than
oi the week previous. The general situation.
ho""ever, as reflected In bank clearings. Is
o.u,4e favorable, and no complaints aro heard.
Vt luce receipts were not very large, and to
wa ds the closo of the week there was a stif
fening In somo lines. Potatoes failed to re
cover much of their lost strength, although
the demand was a little better on Saturday.
Onions are out of the race for the season, and
the new California stock 'which came In on
tho steamer Friday sold as low as $1 10 per
cental. There are no more old-crop onions In
tho Northwo&t, but there are still some pretty
good-sized lots of potatoes to come out.
The weather Is still unfavorable for tho
ripening of strawborles, and the Oregon stock
as yet has cut but a small figure In the mar
ket. The California berries have been of much
betttr quality than usual, and have held up to
very good figures. The Oregon berries have
beer so slow In coming that It Is feared that
the California berries will be out of the mar
ket before Oregon are available In sufficient
quantity to meet the demand. Eggs and poul
try both took a slight move upward Saturday.
Thb is the season for Inferior eggs, and there
Is m much questionable stock coming In that
strWly first-class candled stock commands
quite a premium over the ordinary run of
offerings. In a small way, the cholco stock
was selling at 17c Saturday, and from that
flgu e down as low as 15c. Poultry, which
has been inclined to drag for a long time, also
cleaned up thoroughly on Saturday at prices
that were well up toward the best of the sea
son. The grocory market showed no changes
during the week, although there was some
Btrength reported in staples.
"WHEAT May shipments (flour Included), to
taling less than 000,000 bushels, gjve a pretty
good Idea of the dullness of the wheat mar
ket at the present time. The East slumped
oway nearly all last week, closing with a
loss of over 3c on the week, and Liverpool at
last showed a disposition to humor the weak
ness on this side. Low freights have helped
matters on the Pacific Coasts and prices In
Portland have been less affected by changes
elsewhere than ever before. Whllo It was
hardly possible to secure prices as high as
were paid a week earlier, a CCe quotation on
Walla Walla was still obtainable, and there
was not vory much wheat to be bought at that
price. Two spot ships were taken during the
week, one for South Africa and one from Puget
Sox id for the United Kingdom. The rate for
the latter was not mado public, but is said to
have been less than 24s Gd, which was the
lowest rate pevlously paid this season. Thcro
Is uo more spot or near-by tonnage offering,
but new-crop freights were not sufficiently at
tractive to hold their own at 30s, and during
the week at least two vcssols were picked up
for new season at 28s 9d. The freight market
in San Francisco Is also much weaker, and
the Commercial News, under date of May 29,
sixes up the situation as follows:
In the freight market the week has passed
with a very small amount of activity, but two
spot grain charters being made In north,, and
one at this port. Prospects for tho grain crop
in the north are greatly improved, and al
though stocks In this stato are fairly well
cleaned out, tho new crop will bring forth a
larger amount for shipment than was expected.
These facts, however, appear to have no in
fluence in strengthening the market for ves
sels. The best that a vessel can now do In
this port is 23s Od. the rate of the last charter.
For future tonnage, both hero and in the
north, there is a lessened demand on tho part
of exporters, owing to the fact that they have
already engaged the nucleus of a fleet, and
that the tonnage on the way is steadily grow
ing larger. The amount of grain to be shipped
from the Coast during tho coming season will,
at the most, bo no greater than that which
has been available for shipment during the
season Just closing, while the supply of vessels
is considerably over 100,000 tons more.
The some paper has the following regarding
the crops in California:
The situation In California is practically un
changed. Wheat Is maturing rapidly In the
northern and central districts, and a heavy
crop Is expected: harvestlngi will commence
early in June. In the south, the strong, dry
winds absorbed the moisture of the soil, and
lie condition is worse than a week ago; only
a partial crop will be harvested.
