DEMAND FOR FLOUR
Japanese Buyers Are Again in
LARGE ORDERS ARE PLACED
Eastern Inquiry for Wheat Revives
Hopbuyers and Growers Apart
on Price Question Pro
duce Market Steady.
The most encouraging feature this week In
the local markets Is In the flour trade. A
revival In the Japanese demand promises
large shipments In the next two months.
There Is also a better reeling lr the wheat
trade with some Inquiry from the East. Hops
continue slow, both sides playing a waiting .
game Prices Tor farm produce .generally
are unchanged. There la a steady movement
In groceries and moat Jobbers are satisfied
-with the volume of trade. .Some, however, had
placed their expectations too high and are
disappointed because the Increase In business
is not Tfcatr.
WHEAT The advance In Eastern wheat
prices In the past few days gave an f oppor
tun.ty to local dealer to sell some cf their
surplus stock, which they at onco took ad
antage of. The condition, however, did not
prcmote trading In the Interior, as the hold
ers, always firm, were further strengthened
In thcr views. Prices' are a shade better than
a week ago In consequence of the slight spurt
ef a.tIty, though the' Eastern market
Hrorpd off again yesterday. Small Quantities
cf rr .lng wheat are still going to Southern
Ca:.';rnla. Of export business there Is none.
Foreign crop and market conditions are re
ported by the London correspondent of the
Northwestern Miller of March 15, as follows:
TJrre has been a' certain amount of ex
citement here In the Indian wheat market
this week, owing to the unfavorable crop
reports which continue to be received by
cable, theie wheats have appreciated In value
about sixpence per Quarter, but In other de
scriptions there has been little change In
Tribes and very little animation In the de
mand Apart from the Indian crop news, the
fcau'cs are very large shipments from Ar
gen':r.a 487.000 Quarters to Europe last
week' and a further large Increase in 'the
quantity afloat for the United Kingdom. The
preser, . amount of wheat on passage to the
Tn"'e3 Kingdom is. In fact, the largest on
record for the time of year, which .J, a cir
cumstance added to the certainty of continued
liberal (shipments from Argentina for some
time to come, that quite overshadows the re
ports of damage to the Indian crop, the ef
fects of whloh will only be felt later because
there Is a large quantity of bid wheat to be
carried forward Into the new season.
Meanwhile it would be unwise to ignore the
fact, now proved by official advices, that the
2rtd.an wheat crop is a' more or lees serious
lit' ure in the most Important, wheat-growing
ecct ons of the country, viz., the united
Prcvins and the Punjab, which together
produce about two-thirds of the total Indian
I atll recently the trade was skeptical with
regard to the private reports ot damage to
the crop which had promised so. well in De
ftTber But the action of the London Corn
Trade Association in applying to the Indian
gcernroent for official- news had the effect
tf bringing out the following official report
from the Viceroy, dated February 23:
The wheat crops aro poor in Bombay.
Elser here they were very promising until
Irbrua -r when thoy were damaged by frost'
snl mt, r.h.lefly in the United Provinces,
whtre tho Injuny 'Is -very. .eerious.r
I may explain that Bombay grows only
about 6 .p-r cent of the total crop, and Cal
cutta "Bengal), where tho prospects are fair
ly good, although the harvest Is very fete,
another 6 per cent. It is very unusual and
cx'raordlnary that the crop should suffer from
frst .n February: so unusual is it that the
damage may easily be much more serious
than is at present apprehended by the .offi
la'.s, who naturally are Induced to be opti
mistic In their views.
Ind.a last year (1904) supplied about 15
per cent of the worli's total shipments of
whoat and flour. America 13 per cent, Ar
gentina IS per cent and Russia about 32 per
cent In the United Kingdom' supplies this
season, however, India figures for27 per cent
and Russia 8 per cent.
ScrJ-us damage to the Indian crop as is here
fcrushadowed will mean probably an unwilling
ness to sell, on the part of Indian growers;

therefore, has been removed.
Anof-.er feature which, somewhat perplexes
the trade here la the deadlock" on the Russian
railways. The war had already caused a
Great restriction of rolling stock ou the rail
ways and rendered the transport of grain to

t rite on the railways threatens to have still
fur her very serious results.
A'rea-'y the port stocks of wheat in Russia
are diminishing fast, and unless they can be

may find It very difficult In the Spring and
Summer to obtain tho necessary supplies from
These two points, relating to India and
Russia, act, therefore, as a set-oft to the

L Jl R, FBBD, KTC. The uddon demand
for flour that has come from Jaran is due to
tho f ac that a ' further advance in the tariff
cf about ITS cents, geld, per barrell will take
effect July 1. The shipments vdll bo made
from here in April and May and the move
ment will be much larger than In the past
few months. As tho Portland line steamer

months There are some Eastern Inquiries
for flour, but they have not yet resulted In
business. Nothing is doing .with the United

Oats and barley are both quoted firm, though

HOFS Only one sale from grower to dealer
was reported In the boo market this week.
The io thai changed hands amounted to 45
bales and brought 224 cents. The bops were
primes. Most dealers have Eastern orders for
ncl'-e bops at under 24 cents. There Is
nfc'.l ng pressure and the market is conse
quently inactive. Kastera and foreign mar
kets show no new developments. Mall advices

PROPl TE There is a general eating up of

NEW YORK. March 22. The growls Indif
ference In the demand for stocks had a chill
ing effect on speculative sentiment and tho
level of prices was let down considerably fur
ther today in spits of the constant Irregularity
of the market- The fluctuations were largely
due to the activity ot tho board room trad
ers of tho larger class, whoso position was
occasionally shifted in the progresa ot man
euvers, designed probably to evade an un
desirable following. This shitting process in-
olved the buying of stocks now and then.
but there was no evidence of positive strength
In the market at any time. The growinr con
viction that no aggressive upward movement
to.be looked for In the Immediate future
prompted considerable throwing over of se
curities by holders not prepared to retain
their contracts through an indefinite decline.

or the March quarter, although compared
with a period last year of extraordinary ob
stacles to transportation, was not relished.
More attention was paid than recently to
the apparently officially Inspired disclaimers
of some of the lately prevalent rumors of
intended dividend Increases and stocks which
nave moved under this Influence were notably
heavy. Importance was attached to the news
from Albany, as promising the success of
some of the measures of legislation which' are
feared for their effect on securities.
The foreign news also failed to offset any

relief from that quarter by gold imports,
