QBEGONIAN-NEWS BUREAU. "Washington.
Sept. 18. Portland -continues to Increase Its
I flour export trade, asjevldonced by statistics
I prepared and published by .the Department of
Commerce and Labor. It-ls,trueJts flour shlp-
roents for the month of August are lower than
I Its export of August a year' ago, but this is
true of the country at large, and especially
true of ports on the Pacific Coast. In point of
I'act, there was a smaller actual and propor
tionate falling off in the flour trade of Port
land last August than occurred at cither Puget
Sound or San Francisco. "Where Portland's
I loss was j)0OO barrels, as compared with Au-
Eust, 1902, San .Francisco experienced a decline
I of nearly 40.000, and Puget Sound; about half
that. The aggregate export of the ."Willamette
customs district last month was 50.021 barrels,
as compared to 8G.0S2 barrels from the com-
1Ined ports of Puget Sbund, and S7.445 barrels
at San Francisco.
A stujy of the figures of the flour export for
I the eight months ending with August, however.
Is more gratifying. These figures show'" that
both the 'Willamette and Puget Sound 'districts
are Increasing their trade In flour, while San
Francisco is fast falling to the rear. The
Sound leads, with Portland second, and San
Francisco third, where a year ago the Sound
I and San Francisco occupied reverse positions.
j The exact shipments of flour. In barrels, for
the eight-month period is shown below:

While there has been a general slump in tho
grain trade up to the present time, and the
export of the entire country for the eight
I months ending with August is only two-thirds
what it was in the corresponding months of
last year, Portland, or the Willamette district,
has not experienced as heavy a decline as
other cities on the Coast. San Francisco's
wheat trade has been reduced two-thirds, that
on Puget Sound considerably more than half,
while Portland's trade dropped off only two
fifths. The relative standing of the three, dls.
trlcts is as follows:

I Puget Sound 8.008,090 3.700,800
San Francisco 9.923.41)7 3.720.C35
The dullness In wheat trade during late
months has brought down the aggregate values
of the aggregate exports of breadstutfs from
I all cities on the Pacific Coast. This loss la
not true of the country at large, however. In
case of Portland, whole exported breads tuff 3
In the eight months ending with August, 1902,
amounted to $5,26S,022, there has been a drop
to $4,973.02C in the last eight months, while
Puget Sound shows a decline from ?S.331,GS3
to f7.102.828, and San Francisco, from $10,-
729.66S to $0,190,423.
CROPS OP JAPAN.
Cereal Yield of, the Past Six Years
From Government Report."
The following compilation from the 17th re
port cf the Japanese Statistical Bureau, Just
to hand, gives the cereal crops for all Japan
: for six years, and furnishes material for study
In connection with the recent heavy demand
for flour in Japan. Figures are koku:
Year. Rice. and wheat.
1901 4G.914.943 20.040.207
The figures represent koku. a measure equal
almost to five bushels. It will be noted that
the baryel-rye-wheat crop averages approxi
mately 50 per cent of the rice crop, or 33 1-3
Ier cent of the whole a proportion Important
jto the present subject of shortage. It appears
that the barley, rye and wheat crops, bar-
! vested in Spring, showed a serious deficiency.
arobably aggregating only 15.900.000 koku. It
is Just about time to begin to gauge properly
the rice crop, but reports are still meager.
I Floods at last advices had damaged the rice
crop. But with a serious deficiency in a third
I of Japan's crops, and no gain in the balance,
the situation Is serious.
Grain. Flour, Feed, Etc
There is a moderate amount of trading in
I wheat at current prices, which are still above
I export values. The tone of the market yester
day was weak.

TOUCH 'LOWEST POINT
INDUSTRIALS SLUMP IN NEW YORK
Steady Liquidation Without Any
Nevrs to Account for It General
List Holds Its Own.
NEW YORK. Sept. 18. VTlth a material de
crease of operations, today's stock market con
tinued Its Irregular and downward course, the
weakness, however, being confined almost ex
clusively to the industrial croup, which suf
fered heavy recessions. AslBo from the per
sistent reports of depressed trade conditions,!
no news was heard to account for steady liqui
dation of these issues, especially United States
Steel common, which sold, down to the lowest
point yet recorded, 18, and was without sup
port at Its weakest point. Tho heaviness of
this stock was reflected in the losses sustained
by Tennessee Coal, Republic Steel. American
Car & Foundry. Pressed Steel Car, Sloss-Shef-fleld
Steel and American Locomotive. Others
in the same group ruled heavy throughout tho
day, and were vigorously pounded at the close.
To this list should be added Crucible Steel
preferred, which .sold down over 20 polnta
from the last recorded sale over a year ago.
Outwardly there were no. Indications that the.
New York market was at all affected by the
split In the British Cabinet. American securi
ties were simply neglected.
The general list held well during the first
hour on the continuance of buying of certain
railway shares, presumably for "Western ac
count. There was also some disposition on
the part of traders to cover their contracts
because of a more hopeful view regarding the
crop situation. Amalgamated Copper advanced
on buying orders, which were said to come
from Boston. Tho market continued Irregular
and became decidedly heavy in the last hour,
when Steel common touched Its low point
with resultant weakness to other issues, in
cluding the tractions and some railway shares.
The closing was listless and weak.
Although Western demand for money has
not been so very active in the last few days,
Indications point to a heavier drain on the
local cash in the currency movement than
was anticipated, the known movement for the
week showias a loss of more than 4,ouu,uw.
Time money hardened slightly today on a
further demand to meet year-end loans. Thero
was another advance in foreign exchange, with
an active demand for 60-day bills.
Gross Increases for the closing week of the
month were shown by a number of railroads.
Including Wabash, Canadian Pacific. Norfolk
& Western, Missouri, Kansas & uexas ana
Denver & Rio Grande. V

WHEAT TAKES A TUMBLE.
the Nevrs 'Bearish in Chlcngo
CHICAGO, Sept. 18. The decline in corn,
the fine weather Northwest, weaker cables and
lack of export demand sent wheat downward
this morning. Long wheat came out in large
quantities early, and selling orders were In
the market throughout the session, December
starting at SlV4fSt&c, finished at the bottom.
SO&c. with a net loss of Ii8i5sc xnere was
eorae buying by St Louis houses, but not
sufficient to cause a rally. The weakness or
Southwestern markets Influenced considerable
selling, and foreign advices were bearish.
Fair Weather reports from the com region
caused an additional break in prices, notwlth-
tandlng frosts in several states this morning.
Reports that the crop had not suffered to any
great extent caused a rush of selling orders.
December closed at 50c, a loss of lftc.
The oats market followedWheat and corn.
December closed c lower at 3838c -
There was an early depression in provisions.
but the market later became firm on buying
by pit traders. October pork closed 7ic higher,

PROSPECTS ARE BRIGHTER
FIRST REPORTS OP CROP DAMAGE
Moderate Progress Being? Made by
Business Declining; Prices for
Iron and StcelClearlngrs.
NEW YORK, Sept 18. K. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review of trade tomorrow will say:
Business has made moderate progress during
the past week desolte unusual opposition from
the elements. When all other industries are to
a considerable degree dependent upon agri
cultural conditions, reports of serious Injury
to crops by cold and( wet weather are not
calculated to stimulate confidence. Subsequent
corrections indicated that the amount of dam
age had been exaggerated as usual, and pros-
Tiro car shortage Is beginning to be felt, es
pecially in the Pittsburg district, where suf-
ncient labor cannot bo secured ror nanaiins
freight Manufacturing plants are well oc
cupied, as a rule, even the textile mills re
porting lees idle machinery, and at Chicago
thero is notable preisure for implements and
hardware. Lumber is in better demand as
structural activity revives. Payments are sea
sonably prompt, except where late crops delay
settlements, and the outlook for Fall and Win
ter business contains much that Is encouraging.
Railway earnings thus far reported for Sep
tember show an average gain of 10.30 per cent
over last year.
In the Iron and steel industry quotations
have been declining for some months, and a
large tonnage of business Is held back In th
expectation that still better terms may be
offered. Uneasiness over the labor situation
aggravates the difficulty, although tho latest
developments in the business trades are most
encouraging In this respect
Failures this week were 219 in the United
States against 100 last ycarand 19 in Canada,
compared with 25 a year ago.
FALL AND WINTER TRADE.
Favorable View Taken of the Gen
NEW "STORK. Sept 18. Bradstrect's tomor
row will say:
Conditions still display Irregularity, but
except where crop and weather developments
have been distinctly unfavorable, the tendency
Is still to take a favorable view of the general
outlook for Fall and Winter trade. Heavy
rains and killing frbsts In the Northwest and
in portlons.of the West, with drouth, followed
by unusually cool weather and destructive
wind and rain storms along the Atlantic Coast,
have tended to retard expansion In Fall trade
In wide sections of the country.
All sections, however, have fiot been af
fected alike. The Northwest returns relatively
the poorest reports" aa to the current distribu
tive trade, while the Southwest and" Paclfl
Coast and some sections of the South give ex
cellent reports of buslnes3 already booked or
The outlook for average crops is. still a good-
one. Nothing In the nature of actual short
ages, as occurred in 1901, is indicated, and
while trade opinion probably Inclines to the
Vlow that the boom is over in several indus
tries, none tho less the belief la maintained
that a good average Fall and Winter business
is In prospect
