No Business D6ing as BuyersJ
Are Out of Market
SOME HOLDERS ARE ANXIOUS
Improvement Is Expected After -First
of theVear Decll ning Wheat
'Prices Check. Eastern Busi
ness Flour Situation.
A condition pres.Ua In the hop market that
has been long feared 'by 'many- of the big grow
ers and dealers. It Is a prolonged deadlock
that Is having a natural effect on prices. Brew
era -srill Tict buy. England? ls'Stt present out 'of
the market, and speculators are holding aloof.
The result is a deadxnarket that cannot "be
described, as otherwlse'than -weak. 'While it
is true that not many bops are offering. It is
eald.that some-good lots can be. procured at
about one cent under former asking prices.
This, ltehould be .stated, is rather due tottbe
-weakness of the individual holders than to any
other reason, for the great majority of grow
ers refuse to make any concessions. A case is
cited -of one lot (sold Within the last few days
at about SO cents by a speculator who bought
them not long ago at a cent over the price at
which be cold them. It is presumed he was
.financially pressed and had to realize on them.
There are other speculators in the same fix
who may be forced to sacrifice their hops and I
a lew growers -who likewise have cold feet
re trying to sell at lees than they formerly
wanted. All thla hurts the market and in
creases the feeling of Weakness.
Well-posted hopmen, veterans -in the trade,
who staked their money with a realization
that Just such an emergency was apt to arise,
display no uneasiness -whatever. They point
'out that the last month or six weeks of the
year Are almost invariably dull, especially if
high prices prevail. Brewers do' not buy more
than they have to before the lend of the year.
but wait until after their Inventories are made '
up. Thla explains the activity that is nearly
always seen about the middle of January.
There Is no reason .In their mind why this sea
son should prove an exception to the rule,
therefore they are- confident that the present
depression will "be" followed "by an active buy
ing movement!- and higher prices. The sta
tistical position of the market is certainly in
their favor. While they are agreed that there
will be improvement not' later than the middle
of January, there is a difference of opinion cs
to how low prices will go If they drop at
All before the turn of the year. Even those
who are most certain that there will be a tem
porary decline do not think that the market
can pos6lbly,get below 28 cents. Others, and
their opinion is Just us good, .declare that the
present level of values will be maintained.
Everything, of course, depends on the attitude
of holders. They have the market in their
hands now more than at any time since the
reason opened.
Careful compilations of the state's output by
1 ceding dealers, based on shipments already
made and Quantities In storage, show 80,000
to 5,000 bales as Oregon's production this
year. This Is more than was generally figured
upon earlier In the season, the Increase being
due to the appearance of numerous lots from
t-ectlons where they were not expected. For
the same reason the quantity ' unsold in the
stat is placed by sores hopmen as high as
15,000 or 16.000 bales, but most vraders believe
that not over 10,000 bales are in the hands of
growers and email country dealers.
Eastern advices are of quiet and unchanged
markets. The English situation Is thus re
ported by the Kentish Observer of Novem
ber Si:
During the past five or six days the hop
market has been inactive. The largest buyers
are holding, back longer than usual, and are
k apparently trying to wear the growers out.
One fair-sized . parcel of East Kent hops has
been sold at 10 10s per cwt., but a much
larger lot of Bramllngs part of a growth the
quality of which was declared to bo as fine
as anything grown this year, has been parted
with at 10 per cwt. This was the price
offered for It In the first Instance, and the
grower was not able to get any advance,
though It was -stated that other growths not
nearly so good had realized 10 10s and 10 15a.
Some Mid Kent growths have changed hands
since last week at 8 15s, and an offer of 9
for Fuggles has been refused. Holders as a
whole are very firm.
A mail report from .Nuremberg says:
There is a quiet tendency prevailing on our
market at present. Buyers axe offering lower
prices which have in some instances been ac
cepted and generally speaking quotations are
about 4s to 5s lower than at the beginning of.
me past week.
WHEAT The local wheat market shows no
sign of life. With the .falling off in Eastern
prices, -the demand from that section has come
to a standstill, and dealers are giving their
whole attentton to Ailing old orders. The ex
port market Is also dull, owing to the de
clines at Liverpool. Shippers are -waiting to
tee what will be the outcome of the meeting
of the Foreign Shipowners' Association at Lon
don. If they maintain the present freight
schedule, there Is not likely to be any export
movement of wheat until prices abroad are ad
vanced, or values here are lowered.
The foreign situation is thus reported by the
London correspondent of the Northwestern
Miller:
Enormous -arrivals in this country, almost
unprecedented in exjent, tend to keep the mar
ket In a dull state, and there are sellers today
of cargoes for distant shipment at sixpence
below last week's level, which" may be an in
dication either that the .trade does not be
lieve that America can raUe the European
level of price to its own, or that buyers do not
believe in paying ik premium on distant ar
rivals. We are perplexed, too. by the various report
received from the American "side of the At
lantic; we do not know, In"" fact, whether
America hss an exportable surplus of .SO.000.000
bushels, as some affirm, or of onlyT-tO.000.000
bushels, which latter Is the total vindicated
by your .exports during the part .four months,
of about 16.000.000 bushels, against 52.000,000
last year.
Meanwhile 11 Is tolerably certain that the
Australian surplus next year will not reach
the half of that In the past year, -which
amounts to about 40,000.000 bushels; the fact
that only about halt a dozen vessels have eo
far been chartered for new crop loading against
50 or 60 vessels chartered by this date last
year, Is a sufficient indication of this.
With Tegard to the Argentine crop, which Is
of paramount Interest in regard to the future
course or prices, it s uuncuii io give any
really reliable estimate. The one tiling clear
is that the .history of the growth of this season
is by bo means eo favorablas last year, which
indicates, a smaller yJsld per acre oa the In
creased acreage.
This' Increase Is estimated officially -at 22
per rent, but very little reliance Is placed
on this .preliminary official opinion, the. trade
remembering that only last year an increase
of 17 .per cent was similarly -estimated early
in the season, whereas the result- showed a
harvested area only 2 per cent greater than
in the previous year.
It is' believed, therefore, that 10 per cent
will cover the increase this year, and thus
makfi -the axes, about 10.205,000 acres, against
94170.000 last year.
The yleio. per acre, according to one .author
ity, is not likely to exceed .11 bushels
against ISVz last year, so that & crop of US.-
000. 000 bushels Is regarded as the present In
dication. Against 124,000.000 last year.
Stocks of wheat In United .Kingdom ports
hare increased 20 per cent during Septem
ber, ,tha present total of wheat and flour .In all
the ports being estimated at 2,700,000 quar
ters." against "2.000,000 quarters last year, and
1. jrns.ftCO i 102.
TLOUJt A strong loetl and a weak foreign
'situation is reported: There is so Oriental
demand tax. current rates and -the situation Is
further ' complicated by the. ,rr5x-'up in1- the
. tr&ns-Pvaciflc freight ..situation 'caused by the
chartering or, an inaepenaeat steamer io loaa
here. Should -it result in the lowering of
freights to the Asiatic coast, there would prob
ably be a free movement bf'flour in spite cf
the good stocks .that are known to be carried
over there. ' The Eastern demand has also
fallen off, as was to be expected when wheat
prices began to decline. " locally prospects are
good, as there is a etrons Inquiry, which en
ables prices to be easily maintained.
PRODUCE The most uttentlpn this week
was naturally given to the turkey market- On
the -whole it was a. 'success. Front-street deal
ers succeeded In cleaning up their stocks and
there was no slumn. Prices Wednesday were
quoted around ,10 and 20 cestx. TbeBputhtrnV
urcgon producers wno snippea u ban xraa
clsco did not fare so well, and will probably
favor this market at Christmas. Other poultry
was also In good demand Vnd the mid-week
business closed with the market tn excellent
shape.
.-.The same satisfactory 'report was made by
frult and vegetable dealers, who transacted a
'heavy business j at satisfactory prices.
e-eb quotations nave continued iairigBicuj,;
at least for Oregons, though Eastern eggs
have advanced. No actual change has taken
place In the 'butter market, some creameries
quoting It arm. .ethers weak. Oregon ist
generally In pood supply.' California and
Idaho butter is also cn the market, but East
ern butter is scare.
Dressed meats have improved in the last
fsw days under the Thanksgiving demand.
Were Needed at Portland..
ROSEBtTRG. Or., Nov. 23. (Special.) About
190,000. pounds of fat dressed turkeys, being
nearly lO.OOO'blrds, occupying seven. cars;were
f hipped from Douglas County for the Thanks
giving trade.' Most of them, went" to Saa Fran
cisco. Oakland maintains the lead as the
heaviest shipping point, having sent out about
110,000 pounds. The producers received an
-average of 10 cents per Bound for live birds
and 18 to 10 cents for dressed. The output at
this time is valued at about 435,000, and other
shipments will be made later to supply the
holiday trade.
Offers and Sales at Woodburn.
WQODBURN. Or., Nov. 23. (Special.) The
reports of bears in Ithe bop market that prices
are lower is without foundation. Eastern and
foreign markets remain very firm with some
purchases at prices ranging from 30H&31HC
In view of the fact that over 200,000 bales of
hops have been sold by growers In the United
States during the last CO days, It is not sur
prising that the present market is not of &a
exciting character. Offers of SOHp for ordinary
primes were made' In this c)ty yesterday and
today -with the result that some small sales
have been made Thirty-one and a quarter
cents liave been offered and declined for choice
hopa Less than 200 bales remain unsold in
growers' hands In the 'vicinity of this city.

HINGES ONMONEY MARKET
LESS TRADING IN STOCKS CAUSE
HARDENING OF LOAN RATES.
Low Grade Issues Suffer Materially,
but Active. Shares Show Some
Aggressiveness.
NEW YORK, Nor. 23. Prices of stocks we&
considerably lower at ono time today than
hey -were last night and then rather more
than recovered the decline, with some promi
nent instances of aggressive strength. The
whole market turned largely on the money situ
ation. The hardening loan rates and the pend
ing Thanksgiving holiday prompted consider
able HgEttmf&g of speculative loans. Another
result was the decline in the amount of busi
ness done
Yesterday's flurry In the money market held
its Influence this morning, on account of the
firm tone shown both for call and time loans.
There was practically no time money offer
ing for any period for less than 4 per cent.
The engagement of additional gold coin. $500,-
000. for shipment to Germany emphasized the
influence of this showing. Money rates re
laxed later. The presence of bills against
the gold exports In the foreign exchange mar
ket lowered the quotations in that market and
eo obstructed the gold outgc Money did not
get higher than 3& per cent and the large
offerings at that figure caused trie Impression
that important banking interests purposed to
oppose the advance above that rate at present.
The trust companies and J. P. Morgan &. Co.
also announced the purchase at $20,000,000 of
Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy bonds.
Railroad stocks were n6t greatly affected by
the selling, 'and, in fact, moved rather slug
gishly all day. But a large number of low-
grade industrials and specialties and some of
the obscure railroads suffered materially. This
is the' natural consequence of the rather heed
less speculation in thwe securities which haa
been a marked feature,' of the recent trading.
Amalgamated Copper showed sympathy with
the reaction in the. foreign copper market
rather than with domestic copper stocks, which
were higher. The great strength of Atchison
was unexplained by any news announcement,
but It proved an effective stay for the whole
market. United States Steel preferred was
also an . effective, sustaining factor and was
helped by the report of large railroad buying
of various products for equipment as well as
by the Iron Age's cheering viow of the trade
condition. The market closed below- the" best
and barely steady. There was & confidlnt ab
sorption of" United States b'teel sinking fund
on a rising scale.
The bond market today was 'slow. Total
sales, par value. $3,500,000. United States
bonds were "unchanged on call. ---

L0S. Toward the middle of the session sen

Improved tone was a decrease In primary

of drouth conditions In the Southwest, Late

bulls the demand for flour at Minneapolis being-somewhat
improved. On the rally Decem
