and Jobbing Quotations.
The cranberry crop of the United States this
year is estimated at 1,100.000 bushels, as com
pared with about 050.000 bushels raised last
yc-r. This indicates that steady prices -will

the United States this year will produce about

Western States 100,000
Total estimated crop in bushels 1,100,000
Plymouth and Barnstable Counties, - Massa
chusetts (Cape Cod), last year shipped 210,451
bushels, and estimates tor this year are 188,009
bushels, a decrease of about 10 per cent. The
New cJrsey crop last year was 4,550 bushels,
and this year will be 250.085 bushels, a gain
tf nearly 20 per cent. Wisconsin will yield
37,120 bushels, against 20,345 bushels last year,
a decrease of about 8 per cent. Rhode Island
and Interior Massachusetts show a gain this
year of about 10 per cent, and Long Island Is
reported nearly the Eame as last scaison.
Since many of the Cape Cod reports came In
some growers have reported a Utile damage by
frosts, and others escaping frost nave found
earlier estimates too high. Many write of
dimeulty in securing enough pickers In New
Jersey, and Is therefore quite doubtful whether
all the berries" can be gathered before frost,
which, if coming soon, might mak a large
Shrinkage in the protpeotlvo yield.
No allowance being made for increased acre
age, fine weather conditions continuing another

Season for GrnvenxteiiiH Is Nearly
at an End.
Thclpcal apple market is fairly well sup
plied now, though tho season for Summer va
rieties is about over. Fall apples are coming
in, and sell at generally good prices. The real
active season In the trade will not open until
"Ulr'er apples begin to arrive.
The -arieties now offering are pippins of va
rious kinds. Wolf Rivers, Snows, Kings,
Wealthys and Graveneteins. The season for
the latter Is about closed. The Gravensteln It
a favorite table apples, large, showy and well
flavored. No other apple of the medium early
class is so sure of a good market.
Tho original Gravensteln tree grew in the
garden of the Duke of Augustenberg. at the
Castle of Gra-enstcln, in Schleswig-Holsteln,
in Germany, and was still standing about the
year 1850. Hlrschfelt, a German pomologlst,
in 178S, wrote the first description of the apple,
end stated that It was brought to Germany
from Italy. The earliest trace of ibis apple
dates back to about 1700. It is now widely
grown in Western Europe, and is a favorite
About the only special drawbacks of the
Gravenste.in are that It Is only moderately
productive and requires good coll and culture
to produce large, attractive fruit. It will not
profitably endure neglect like the Ben Davis
or Baldwin, but is one of the best-paying va
rieties where thorough methods are practiced.
STANDS BY ITS PRICES.
"Willamette A'nlley Prune Associa
tion a. Firm-Holder.
SALEM, Or., Oct. 0. The sales committee
of the Willamette Valley Prune Association
held a meeting today, and after canvassing the
situation decided to continue the present prices,
which are a 3-cent basis for 30s and a 2&
cent basis for 40s and over.
The members of the committee are of the
opinion that not all of the present crop will
be saved, owing to insufllcjent drying capacity,
and that the rains will spoil a small portion
pf the crop, so that the yield will not be as
large as was expected. It was alto learned
that California will produce but 2517 cars of
prunes this year, as compared with 30S3 cars
last year. The shortage in the supply of all
fruits also encouraged the committee to stand
by its prices.
J. H. Fletcher, of Vancouver, was in Salem
today. He reports that the Clam County As
sociation is making a few sales of the first
packing on a 27j-cent basts. Some of the grow
ers on the lowlands finished drying today, hut
the work will not be completed In the hills for
MO days yet.
Lewis County Hop Sale.
CHEHALIS. Wash., Oct. C (Special.)
The first hop. sale of any considerable
".Quantity in the Chehalls district was made
here today, A. L. Coffman, for Plncus &
Eons, of Tacoma, Llllenthal's Washington
agents, bought John Dobson's 25 ton3 at 25
cents. The quality of Mr. Dobson's crop
Is good, and this price is the highest paid
here this season. He had 40 tons on CO
acres. Plncus & Sons previously contracted
15 tons at 15 cents per pound.
Northwestern Wheat Markets.
PULLMAN, Wash., Oct. 0. (Special.)
Farmers here are holding for 70 cents for
wheat and $1 for oats and barley. Not a
sale was made today, buyers offering CI
cents for club wheat, 85 cents for oats and
80 cents for barley. Less than 20 per cent
of tho crop near Pullman has ben sold.
Government Crop Report.
WASHINGTON, Oct. C The Weather Bu
reau's weekly crop report bulletin:
On the whole, the corn crop has experienced
another favorable week. In Iowa 1 to 15 per
cent of the area planted Is still exposed in
some measure to damage by heavy frost, but
, another week of warm, dry weather would
ripen most of the belated crop. In Nebraska,
Kansas, Missouri, Michigan and Wisconsin
about 10 per cent of the crop Is still exposed
to injury from frost; in Indiana, about 5 per
:ent, and in Ohio from 5 to 25 per cent. In
Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota from
10 to 40 per cent has already been Injured to a
greater or less extent.
Rains have retarded threshing of Spring
wheat in Minnesota and the Dakotas, and
caused further Jnjury to grain in shock In
South Dakota. Early-sown wheat has germi
nated and is coming up well, fine 6tands being
reported from Nebraska and Kansas. Recent
rains, in Texas have put the soil In excellent
condition, and seeding is now active in that

MARKET IN SUSPENSE
AWAITING ACTION BY THE UNITED
STATES STEEL TRUST DIRECTORS
Movements of Other Shares Igmored
Time Money Market Is Grow-ing-
NEW YORK, Oct. 6. Today's stock market
lay practically in a lethargy pending the ac
tion of tbo United States Steel directors on
the common stock dividend. Tills action had
not been decided up to the close of the market,
and the repressive influence of the suspense
accordingly was not removed. Dealings were
the smallest for many weeks, and. smalj as
they were, a large 'proportion of the whole was
absorbed by the United States Steel securities,
which were the only stocks in which the uncer
tainty over the dividend action was made the
occasion for speculative price movements to
any extent. This Is largely due to the fact
that the financial world has been in great doubt
over what the effect wpuld be of tho dividend
action. Whether the passing or reduction of
the dividend could result In any further fall
in the price of the company's securities had
been most questioned. The conservation of a
surplus, it is now believed, would have held
the market price of the securities better than
the distribution of dividends on the common
stock, which has proved utterly unavailable to
hold the market. The sharp advance in the
preferred Mock this afternoon of more than 2
points, while the common stock was slightly
affected, was due to the party that ws la
doubt over the consideration of the dividend,
and which believed that the additional security
for the preferred by the retention of the sur
plus In the treasury would 'result in higher
Outside the steel stocks, tho market was ex
ceedingly narrow and the movements Insignifi
cant. Only a handful of stocks got as much
as a point away from last night, and extreme
movements were not sustained in any place
The early movement was downward, and Lon
don assisted In this tendency to some extent
on account of the unsettled opinion in the
market from the British Cabinet changes.
Some selling was reported to be for Western
account, and may have been associated with
reports of deterioration of the wheat yield in
one or two of tho Western States, which also
caused u firm tone In the wheat market. The
Government's weekly report on cotton was felt
to leave a good deal to be desired. There was
no pressure of liquidation at any point, and
the market rallied in sympathy with the late
upward movement In United States Steel pre
ferred. The full recovery was not held, but
the closing was steady, and showed very slight
net changes as a rule
The time money market seems to be growing
softer, and apprehension of any real stringency
has been pretty well dissipated. The large
movement ofold toward London and the ces
sation of Berlin demands for gold seem to as
sure the prospects for that center. The belief
is gaining force that the deposit of Govern
ment funds witn Uestera banks has supplied
a sufficient proportion of the usual demand to
relax tho pressure on New York.
The market for bonds was very dull and
about steady. Total sales, par value, $2,043,

BETTER UNDERTONE IN WHEAT.
Trading of a Mee Active Character
CHICAGO, Oct. 6. A better undertone pre
vailed In the wheat pit, and at times the mar
ket was quiet and strong, with trading of a
more active character than of late. Opening
prices were firm, notwithstanding lower foreign"
markets, December being up c, at 70
76c Scalpers were liberal buyers of Decem
ber, but the buying of July was quite gen
erally neglected. There was very little of the
nearby option for sale, and as the session ad
vanced, prices gradually went higher, until
77o was reached. Bullish crop reports from
Missouri and Ohio, with strength In outsldo
markets, were early bull factors. When Brad
etrcet's figures were issued, showing an in
crease In the world's visible supply of over
12,000,000 bushels, considerable- selling devel
oped, and the market suffered a decline. De
cember slumping off to 76c During the last
hour, however, prices again rallied on a good
cash demand and on reports of big export busi
ness done via the Gulf. It being claimed that
60 or 70 boatloads had been sold for shipment
by Southwestern bouses. The close was firm,
with December 0c higher, at 777Jc
Corn was on a bull tack, and more than made
up tho ground lost In the previous session.
Buying was of an Influential character, pro
vitton interests taking the initiative on that
Trading In oats was of a moderate volume.
December closed up c, at 36c.
There was very little trading In provisions,
and the market lacked any features. The close
showed slight declines, January pork being off
10c. lard and ribs 2c lower.
