HOPS AGAIN QUIET
Market. Relapses Into a State
of Inactivity. -
CHINESE LIKELY TO SELL
Wore Oriental Inquiries for Flour
Improvement In Oats and Barley
Complicated Situation in
the Butter Trade.
The hop market has .Cropped back Into a.
state of Inactivity after the flurry of last
week, occasioned by the selling by Klabcr.
The dullness is due more to the lack of offer
ings than anything else. though It Is raid that"!
not many of the local dealers haVe Eastern
order on hand. Should any more hops bo
put ca the market at a reasonable price, how
ever, they would doubtless be quickly1 taken
up. The scarcity of offerings Is expected to
he rellered before the close of the "month as
many of the Chinese growers will try .to, sell
out before their new year opens. They are
carrying considerable holdings, but It Is iot
believed their unloading will have an adverse
effect on prices. The market "Went through
the ordeal of the Klabcr selling without be
traying the -least sign of a slump and can
probably bear up under the Chinese realizing.
Latest wire advices from New Tork are of
firm, and unchanged but quiet markets. For
eign advices also indicate a Ann undertone.

The London Times, In reviewing the JJngr
llsh hop market, rays:
"Earlier, than ever before, the bosrd of agri
culture has Issued the annual preliminary
statement relating to the total production of
hops and the estimated yield per acre In this
country- This is the first installment or what
nre generally known as the agricultural pro
duce statistics, and It will probably be fol
lowed, ome woeks hence by similar statements
concerning this year's total production and
yield per acre of the -cereal and other crops
of Crest Britain. From the official figure
we have constructed our "usual table, given be
low The cultivation of hops In Great Brit
tain Is restricted, as U well known, to norms
half dozen counties of England, the total
extent of hop outside these counties being
only 1S8 acre, as compared with 47.611 acres
within them. In the-.table we compare this
year's estimates of production with those of
lat year, and we have calculated the percent
age which each county contributes to the total
production. The three tinenumeratcd -counties,
yielding collectively 30S cwt.. are Salop. 280
cwt., and Gloucester and Suffolk, 28 cwt.
The estlrnated total production In England
In 1904 and 1003 follows:
Hereford .1 14. lot
"tVorcrater (n. 7.V;
Surrey ...... 2.515
Others 3).... 30s
The; total production' of hops this y-ar ip-tl-niated
( 282,"30 cvtr1s seen to be as much
as 1SS.73S cwt. leis than last j ear's crop,
which was estimated at 421.06S cwt. The crop
of 1904 Is thus J53 per cent, or one-third,
smaller than that or 1903. although thto year's
extent or hop's was Almost the nine a that of
last year, .bring only 139 acres less. The pres
ent Is the 20th consrcutlve year In which tho
produce of the hop crop has been officially
estimated In England. Within this period the
estimated total production has fluctuated be
tween a maximum of 77C.144 cwt. sr.d a min
imum or 281.921 cwt.. the former having been
recorded in 1PS8 and the latter In 18SS. two
years later. This year's total production of
252.330 cwt. escapes being the lowest on rec
ord hy the trivia! quantity of 410 cwt.
A late number of the Kentish Observer says:
'"Although there has been a rather better de
mand for hops of medium quality, the trade
generally has continued quiet, and there ap
Pars to be no pronpect of the large growths
of East and MId-Kents moving off this side of
Christmas, unless. Indeed, holders are prepared
to accept the ridiculously low prices offered.
The bulk of the business Is confined to hops
between S and 0 jer cwt.
"WHEAT There lias not been much doing In
the wheat market elnce the year opened.
There Is no export business under way, and
probably will be none during the remainder
of the season. There 's a fair amount of
Eastern inquiry, and some trading with Cali
fornia, but the millers arc buying sparingly.
The London correspondent of the Northwest
ern Miller says of the foreign situation:
The weather has been for me time remark
ably mild for the time of year, although it Is
now inclined to be more severe. This unsea
sonable weather, both here-and In France, Bel
glum. Germany. Holland nnd Austria-Hungary,
tends to restrict the consumption of wheat, or
rather to prevent that increase which is gen
erally associated with the Winter months, and
will help to account for the quietness of the
wheat market generally during the post week.
Anothtr cause of weakness has been the
greater freedom with which shippers are of
fering new cropjia. Plata, wheat at lower
prices, business having been done this week
In 65-pound Tlosarlo Santa. Fe (the quantity
most liked here) at Sis 6d, and in 62-pound
at 31s 480 pounds c. i. t. These prices at
nliiepence to a shilling a quarter below tho
price asked a fortnight ago. The crop re
ports from Argentina, do not Improve, but It Is
regarded as tolerably certain that an export
surplus probably equal to last year's will be
available. English buyers, however, are
rather afraid of the quality owing to the re
ports of damage by rain and other untoward
-weather which will help to account for their
Indisposition to buy this wheat for shipment,
except at lower prices. This sort of wheat is
uw on a level in "point of price with No. 2
Calcutta, which Is worth rJsSfSls 3d 492
pounds c J. f. for January and February ship-'
The inuch-'iked hard .Manitoba wheat is,
however, still very scarce, and realizes as
aaueh at 39s 9d jr 4S0 pounds c. 1. f. for No.
1 Northern. S4s 6d for No. 2, and S3s Sd for
Eetlmatlng the New Zealand crop (which Is
harvested later) at about the same total as
last year, the total Australasian wheat yield
Is expected to come ou(. about as follows, com
pared with previous years. The figures are
quarters of eight bushels, hundreds omitted:
1904. 1903. 1SW2. iftuflL
New South Wales. 2.000 3.270 210 2.020
Victoria 2,150 5,250 320 1.230

West Australia.... 125 125 120 120
New Zealand 850 $63 933 S15
Total 6.590 9,530 2.4S0 6, SOU
In 1901 the crop was .300.00jt)uarters.
It is, therefore, expected that the surplus for
export will be about 2,500.000 quarters, against
8.000,000 quarters laet year.-
FLOUR, FEED, ETC There have been
more Inquiries for flour from the Orient In the
past week than usual, but so far they have
not resulted la business. However, they give
an Indication of a growing want that must
wner or later be satisfied. Stocks on the
other side are only moderate, and It is diffi
cult to see how the Japanese and Chinese can
get along much longer without buying. At'
present the market Is 1n a waiting attitude.
There it a fair amount of activity (n oats
and barley, ana prices are several decrees
firmer, though as yet no higher. This la at
tributed largely to the colder -weather, though
the Government order and Saw lan buying have
also stlmatated the market- Hay Is active
and steady In price.
' FKODUCE-i-Thc "butter situation Is somewhat
""complicated. One of the cl?y 'creameries ad
vanced its quotation on extra creamery to
32lc, with the following explanation:
"A general .advance In the best grades of
;freeh-churned creamery butter ha manifested
itself throughout the United States, doe to
the extreme cold weather prevailing for the
.jjart jlvo weeks, which, together with the
violent storm accompanying, have canned the
flow of cream to fall far short of the quantity
required to meet the demand. How Jong the
jresent stringent condition may continue. It U
Impossible to foretell, but there is no reason
to -expect yan early decline."
On the other hand. Front-street dealers quote
the market rather weaker than before, with
Jarge supplies on band from Valley, Coast and
Oregon eggs are firmer and a shade higher
than last week, as the cold weather has
checked receipts and stimulated the demand.
Eastern eggs are very scarce.
Poultry of alt kinds has moved off well at
strong prices, with the supply rather limited.
Potatoes and onions are steady, with a fair
shipping movement in the former.
GROCERIES, MEATS. ETC All interest In
the grocery trade In the past week has cen
tered in the sugar question. Prices declined
10c on Monday and advanced again on Tues
day to the former leveL The market Is very
stiff, and most dealers look for a further rise.
Low-grade 'coffees continue firm. Tea, rice
and beans are quiet and unchanged. Salmon
Is quiet, but quoted firm. Canned fruits are
in a similar situation. The American Grocer
in its jLnnsal review of tho corn and tomato
packs of this country and Canada places the
1901 total of tomatoes at 8.068.803' cases,
against 10.679,509 cases last year, and corn
11.462,909, against 4.851,146 cases last year.
The shortage In tomatoes puts the market la
a good situation, but the immense Increase In
com will probably bring about a considerably
Livestock receipts haT been good, and prices

Portland Union Stockyards. DressTJ -meatsot

MARKET WITHOUT TREND
SPECULATION AT A LOW EBB IN
rrleHVary"8iriht!y Frem Tuc4lay8
Cles, but. Undertone cf Val
. un U Firm.
NEW TORK. Jan. 11. 3ach a market as
there wts tor stocks today was restricted to
testing operations by profess-Io-ials is aa At
tempt to discover the trend of the market.
The attempts were UMuceeesful, for the slm
ole -reason that the aw'ket had no' : -trend.
There -ras a cendltloa of lethargy, with prices
near to last night's level. The undertone Is
undeniably firm, and such testis? cperatlons
as the professionals venture upon are Indica
tive or a spirit of hopefulness for higher prices.
For several days past the early transactions
have been light, huylng orders following re
cessions, ahdthe disappointing fact Is de
veloped that traders are alone In thn market.
This stagnant condition of speculation ta a
surprise to those who looked for active deal
ings with the January congestion of money
upplT. and the effort to. And explanation for
it points to various surmises. The natural
accumulation of money In New York Is mod
ified to some extent by the oefgo ,of soil, and
next, weks requirement of $10,000,060 tor the
return of Government deposits is subject for
consideration. But the almost plethoric con
dition of the money market and the loan in
terest rates prevailing make this an improb
able explanation for the neglected speculation.
The unprecedented rush of depositors at the
local tarings bank this week Is offered as part
explanation "of the diversion of Investment
fuqds. the attraction being the advance In the
interest rate to depositors offered "by many ut
the banks. Then there is soroo distrust of
the level to which prices had bees pu4hed in
anticipetion of the January movement. The
riee of a few pedal stocks left the Indeter
minate tone of the market unchanged up to
The movement of bond prices was Irregular,
but there was a well-diffused activity In the
market. Total sales, par value, $3,S40,000.
United Slates bonds were unchanged, on call.
