FRUIT FROM FLORIN
California Strawberry Season
fill Open Today.
NEW SELLING ARRANGEMENT
Neither Excessively High Nop Low
Prices Will Be Permitted
Crop of the District Un
Six crates of Florin strawberries -will reach
Front atreet this morning. They -will be the
flret to arrive this season from the celebrated
district which for years has supplied the North
ern country with California berries. Some In
ferior strawberries have come up from around
Los Angeles, but the real opening of the sea
son Is when the Florins arrive. Today's rc
celpta will offer at $8 a crate, and the price
will be gradually lowered as the season ad
vances, so as to permit of a steady movement.
A new selling arrangement has been effected
this year that should be satisfactory both to
the growers and the trade. Heretofore the
Florin output has been handled by three firms,
the Oppenheim Fruit Company. W. O. Davles
and the Florin Fruitgrowers' Association. This
season Oppenheim has secured two-thirds of
the berries, and as the others were glad enough
to go in with him, they have organized the
Berrygrowers' Union, which will handle the
crop, having but one agent In each of the
Northern cities. A more liberal policy has
been adopted by the union, which will be to
chip only on direct orders. This will prevent
any oversupply and demoralization of prices.
On the other hand, high prices will bo avoided,
which will naturally mean the selling of more
The acreage in the Florin district is larger
this year than ever before. The crop is esti
mated at 70,000 crates, of which Portland will
take from 16,000 to 20.000" orates. The re
mainder will go to other Northwestern cities
as far East as Montana. Only the slop-over
will be disposed of in California. The crop
will be about two weeks late, and shipments
will continue until Hood Klver and Mount
Tabor berries are marketed. Opening at ?G a
15-pound crate, prices on Florin berries are
expected to drop to 51.50 by May 1, and to SO
or DO cents by the middle of the month. Hood
River berries will probably command good
prices, as the big shippers intend to regulate
the supply. When tho local fruit begins to ar
rive, quotations can be no longer controlled.

ERIE STOCK A LEADER
UNEXPLAINED BUYING IN NEW
Week's Currency Movement Indicates
Another Extraordinary Accumu
lation of Cash There.
NEW YORK, April 15. Today was another
day of languid speculation and moderate op
erations by a small contingent of professional
traders, who were not bold enough to follow
prices to any distance from last night's level.
Outside of professional operations, there was
little In the market so far as could be de
tected. The most conspicuous movement of the day
was that In Erie, and the steady accumula
tion of that stock made some impression on
the general list, resulting In a rally from the
early decline. The buying of Erie was unex
plained, but the existence of divided holdings
In the stock by the same opponents as those
arrayed In the contest for the control of
Northern Pacific revived some of the old ru
mors about the extension of the contest to
Erie, which were In circulation at the time
of the first contest In the Northwest. The
early heaviness centered largely in the Penn
sylvania group, and was due to tho announce
ment of a $10,000,000 note issue by the Balti
more & Ohio. Thcso temporary expedients for
funding operations are felt to be piling up
ahead of the market's absorptive power. This
has the effect of discouraging buying of se
curities. The week's currency movement Indicates an
other extraordinary accumulation of cash at
this center. The Sub-Treasury operations In
clude both the payments for gold bars ex
ported and for Japanese gold deposited In San
Francisco, and have netted to the banks $5,
163.000. Besides this, the regular express
movement with the interior has been heavily
in favor of New York, estimates running the
amount over $3,000,000. Sterling exchange con
tinued very firm, and it is considered probable
that further gold will be exported at favor
able opportunities. The exports of grain for
the week show a falling off from last week of
640.000 bushels and 445.000 bushels of corn.
The Bank of England policy in reducing the
discount rate this week is believed to encour
age the repayment of London obligations to
Paris, and this would not relax the pressure
on New York for gold at Paris. The London
Statist said recently:
"It is highly desirable that the immense
amount of foreign money which has been em
ployed In this market should be materially re
duced. It Is a dangerous thing for a market
like that of London to be dependent to so
great an extent as It has been for four or five
years upon foreign moneys, which might have
to be withdrawn at the most Inconvenient
London is plainly able to command gold in
New York at present for repayments in Paris.
The market closed inert, and with insignificant
net changes In the general list.
Bonds were irregular. There was a sharp
advance in the Central of Georgia minor Is
sues. Total sales, par value, $2,030,000. Unit
ed States bonds were unchanged on calL

BETTER CROP PROSPECTS.
Weaken the Teas of the Chicago WTaet
CHICAGO, April 15. Small receipts and pre
dictions of freezing- weather In Kansas had a
strengthening influence on wheat prices at the
opening. July being up a shade to ftSfto at
87c to S7ftc Crop damage reports were
again in evidence. In addition, the Informa
tion that came from the Northwest In regard
to seeding was still bullish. The pit crowd
was In a humor to listen to that kind of
news, and matters of an opposite character
were given scant attention until after many
of the bulla had bought what wheat they could
carry. That was done easily, for there were
few orders from outside traders. In the mean
time tho market had developed added firm
ness, the July delivery having sold up to SSftc.
Toward the middle of the session sentiment
suddenly veered, and the market weakened
rapidly. Tho cause pf the pronounced change
la attitude was a 'report from Minneapolis
that the Spring wheat in the Dakotas and
Minnesota would probably show a small In
crease, notwithstanding expectations of a de
crease. Lower prices in all outside markets
emphasized the weakness here. Several of
the larger commission houses had long wheat
for sale, and there was also some selling for
short account. The market lacked any In
fluential support, and continued weak until
the close. After selling off to S6?rc, July
closed at S7c.
July corn opened unchanged to ftc lower at
OOftc to Blc, sold between 49ftg50fl51c and
closed at 50c May ranged between 51ftS53ftc,

NOT ENTIRELY FAVORABLE
SPRING TRADE DISAPPOINTING
IN MANY LINES.
Backwardness of the Season Largely
Responsible for the Depression
Throughout the Country.
NEW YORK, April 15. Bradstreefs tomor
row will say:
The industrial situation has not been entire
ly favorable. Iron and steel, coal, coke, lum
ber aad naval stores Interests bote either ac
tivity in production and consumption or Im
proved demand from various sources, but the
cotton goods industry Is curtailing production
steadily; there is less activity In shoe manu
facturing due to severe Winter weather cur
tailing demand or diverting it to rubber goods,
which have been active, and the building and
other industries are marred by labor troubles,
which, while not Involving large numbers of
men, result In annoying and expensive delays.
The woolen goods demand Is not up to ex
pectations. The strength of a large number
of staples, such as hides, leather, Iron and
steel, cheese, tea, flour, copper and lead, Is &
While Spring trade has been disappointing in
many lines, and immediate business is not up
to expectations, the number of markets re
porting good orders for future delivery is
large. Collections show little or no improve
ment. Iron is rather quieter this week, less
eagerness to obtain supplies of pig being noted
at several markets.
Wheat, including flour, exports for the week
ending April 14, aggregate 1,213,855 bushels,
against 1.834,370 bushels last week, and 2,977.
777 bushels last year. From July 1, 1903, to
date, they aggregate 119,050,859 bushels,
against 170,732,053 bushels last season.

CASE OF COMPLAINT.
Friday Spring Weather Makes Restoration
of Trade Difficult.
NEW YORK. April 15. R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review of trade tomorrow will say:
Tardy Spring weather following an unusual
ly severe Winter, makes it difficult to restore
satisfactory trade conditions, but It Is encour
agalng to find at many points this unseason
able weather the only cause of complaint, and
there is always hopo that the early losses may
be made up, at least In large measure, when
the normal conditions arrive. In the mean
time sales of dry goods are restricted and
stocks in all positions from producer to con
sumer are larger than Is desirable. Aslda
from the cotton states, where business la brisk,
the week's dispatches Indicate that early gains
were maintained, but little further progress
occurred. Labor controversies are still an
Railway earnings in the first week of April
were 7.0 per cent smaller than last year. No
definite check to progress In the Iron and steel
Industry is discerned, although it lacks uni
formity, and in some departments It is diffi
cult to find encouragement.
Firmness and activity continue in the Chi
cago packer hide market, and foreign dry
hides are held steady by the prompt absorp
tion ot arrivals.
Failures this week number 225 in the Unit
ed States, against 212 last year, and 16 In
Canada, compared with "16 a year ago.

TO WHT NATIONAL GRANGE.
Committee Organizes to
A meeting was held at the Commercial
Club yesterday afternoon for the purpose
of arranging for securing the next an
niral session of the National Grange,
which it Is proposed to hold In Portland
for ten days commencing November 7.
Richard Scott, of Milwaukle, presided,
and Secretary J. D. Lee, of the Board of
Trade, acted ns secretary. The others
present were Ben Albers, of the Chamber
of Commerce; J. H. Fish and A. L. Mor
ris, of the Board of Trade; EL H. Kelham
and W. H. McMonles, of the Manufactur
ers Association; Hugh L. McGulre, of
the Commercial Club; F. E. Beach and C.
H. Welch, representing the Oregon and
Washington State Grange, and A. P. Mil
ler and Thomas Paulson, from the local
Granges; W. E. Coman and Frank Lee,
of Portland, and Dr. James Wlthycombe,
The chairman was authorized to ap
point committees on finance, entertain
ment, reception, transportation and an
executive committee. These appointments
will be announced later. It was decided
to raise a fund of $2500 to defray the ex
penses of entertaining the National meet
ing, which will probably bring several
thousand people to the city during the
ten days of Us duration. The National
Grange consists of the masters of the
various state Granges and delegates to be
chosen from each state. It Is estimated
than 500 people from east of the Rocky
Mountainsa will come and the Pacific
Slope will have large delegations. The
National executive committee requires a
fund of $CO0O from the city which Is des
ignated for Its meeting place, and a guar
anty of sufficient hotel accommodations at
prices not exceeding $2 per day. Each of
the local commercial bodies and the Ore
gon State Miners' Association are co
operating with the state Granges In urg
ing the claims of Portland as the 1S04
convention city and it seems practically
settled that the Grangers will accept the
One of the special features contemplated
by the committee In case the meeting can
be secured will be an excursion for the
delegates o Corvallls on the west side
of the river returning on the east side.
The citizens of Corvallls have signified
their willingness to assist in defraying
the cost of such an excursion, and are
enthusiastically In favor of securing the
National meeting for Portland. In this
state alone there are 100 Granges, having
a membership of 6000, and the membership
in Washington 13 even larger.
The railroads have already given as
surances that they will grant liberal rates
and are prepared to assist the movement
In every way. An adjourned meeting of
the committee will be held next Friday
afternoon in the Commercial Club at 4
o'clock, at which time the subcommittees
will be announced.
