U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICUL fURE, Climate and crop service, Portland, Jr., Sept. S. The first five days o the jreek were warm and pleasant and excel nt for harvesting wheat and hops. On Sat irday the weathor became showery and un icttled and light rains occurred in all parts if the state. These rains were of great benefit to pas tures and late potatoes, but they Interfered with the harvest of Spring wheat, and also caused an Increase of vermin in the bop yards. Spring wheat harvest Is drawing to a close and threshing Is progressing rapidly. The train yields continue satisfactory, and the reports from nearly everywhere are that the Duality Is above average. Hopplcking is be ing pushed as fast as possible; in fact, some correspondents say that the hops are being picked too green. But In general the crop s ripe, and If is believed will turn out to be 4. good one, although slightly smaller than lhat of last year. The third crop of alfalfa Is being harvest id, with average yields. Stock is in good iondltlon, and green and stubble feed is now plentiful. Sugar beets promise well, and late potatoes are doing splendidly. Prunes are slowly maturing and the pick ing" of this crop will become genoral In about two weeks. Pears are now being harvested, and the crop is an extra good one. Apples are doing fairly well. COAST DISTRICT. Knappa, Clatsop County. W. II.

WEDNESDAY, INTEREST IS LACKING UNUSUAL DULLNESS CHARACTER IZES STOCK MARKET. "Buying of Atchison Shares Resumed. Good Hallway Earnings Re portedAdditional Gold. NEW YORK, Sept. 8. Unusual dullness, even for this period of the year, 'character ized today's stock market. Elements of In terest were entirely lacking and the vol ume of business was disappointingly small In view of the triple holiday and apparent Intention of tho Secretary of the Treasury to relieve any strain on the Fall movement of currency. Last week's buying of Atch ison shares was resumed and some activity was shown by Canadian Pacific, Southern Pacific Rock Island and Wabash preferred. The early afternoon brought a movement in several of tho specialties, North American advancing 2j4, Colorado Fuel 1 and Con solidated -Gas 1H. No significance attached to the advance In these shares. Some of the early selling of Amalgamated Copper -was traced to houses with Boston connections. The stock closed at the lowest figure of the day In spite of an advance in the price of the metal at home and abroad. In tho final hour, there was some short selling of such stocks as St, PauL Atchison, Rock Island, the WCstem group generally and Brooklyn Rapid Transit, Induced in part by reports of labor trouble on tho Lehigh Valley. The market closed dull and heavy. Some excellent railway earnings were re ported, notably St. Paul, which showed a net increase for July of over $260,000; New York Central, Norfolk & Western and Mex ican Central, Texas & Pacific and some of the minor stocks also showed gains In gross earnings. The feature of the foreign 'exchango mar ket was the appearance for the first time this year of bills covering shipments of "spot cotton." These did not appear, how ever, In quantities sufficient to weaken rates for exchange, which held firm at $4.8650 fori demand. But the very fact that such bills were released was taken to mark tho be ginning of a larger export movement for that staple. Exchange brokers for weeks have been looking forward to the Inaugu ration of this movement as affording the best basis for depressing the sterling mar ket to a level whore gold could be used as a form of remittance. Locally, the monetary situation was un changed. Additional gold imports from Australia were reported and further pay ments for gold deposited at San Francisco were made by the subtreasury. The bond market was rather quiet and showed some lrrogularlty in the early deal ings. Total sales, par value, $1,205,000. United States new 4s advanced & per cent and the 2s per cent on tho last call. 'c -2 STOCKS. 2 3- ? 22. : Atchison do pfd Baltimore & Ohio do pfd Canadian Pacific Central of New Jersey.

Wheat was strong at the opening, ihtluenccd by bad weather In the Northwest, December being c higher at 82 to 82 Sc. There was but little rallying power after the market had sold oft, and the close was but a shade above the bottom at 81c, a loss of c from Friday's final figures. News from the corn belt today was ex tremely bearish and predictions of light frosts In Kansas and Nebraska tonight had but little effect against the Summer-like weather of the past three days. The De cember option sold off from 52c at the opening to 50 c steadying a trifle at the close at 51c, a loss of '4 c Oats were affected to some extent by the weakness In corn. Local longs and commis sion houses led the selling, but small re ceipts and some unfavorable .crop news pre vented a largo decline. December closed c lower at 3737c. The nearby deliveries in provisions were strong, packers selling tho deferred product. The damand was sufficient to hold prices, however, with the exception of pork, which due to tho weakness In corn, showed a loss. October pork was 5 cents higher, lard was up 1215c, and ribs 22 25c higher. The leading futures ranged as follows: WHEAT. Open. High. Low.. Close. Sept.
