Growers' Carelessness May Ruin Reputation
of Oregon Product.
SALEM. March 28. (Special.! Acting upon
the theory that when hops are scarce "every
thing goes," Oregon growers were lenient with
plrters last macon and let them put in a
much largr proportion than usual of leaves
nd vines. Many protests have been received
from erry market in which Oregon hops are
. Id, ard it is evident that this practice cannot
continue without damage to the reputation
of the Oregon product.
One of the latest of these protests came
from F TV. Simondri & Son, of New York,
who write John Carmich&el as follows:
"We have received bitter complaints in re-
gad to the way the urowors picked their
v-ns last j ear, and certainly these complaints
were justified. "We have never in all our-ex'
perience known the Oregon crop to have been
t-o carelessly handled in this respect, and
unlets grower in the future pay more atten
tion to the handling of their craps and see
that the leaves and stems are kept out. the
Oregon crop will lose its prestige. In pre
vious years one of the principal features of
Oregon hops and one that appealed to tho
"English brewers was that "Oregons were -well
and cleanly picked, and growers in their tvn
Interest should see that the rcputaUon of
the crop should be kept up to, the high stand
ard of previous years. This Is a. matter of
vital importance to Bll concerned In the
Jiand'ing of "Oregon. and we ask you to put
the matter before .your growers in as strong
a way an you possibly can. Unless growers
take the tnatternnlljnstnl--ioti!lt-thai
Were Is no repetlUon of -last year's care
lersneis. it cn only mean the decadence of
the Oregon crop. Let the growers of Ore
gon take heed of the fate of New Tork state,
has suffered enormously for this very
reason This matter cannot be rut too strong
ly, as It means much for everyone concerned.

St. Paul 6"ring Light Shipment to Tort
litnd Cheese Is Steady.
BAN FRANCISCO. March 28. (Special.)
The cheese market Is steady under a fairly
good demand. Receipts from California In
terior points are 25 per cent below tho cor
responding period last year. One reason for
this Is that cream can be sold to better ad
antage to condensed milk factories than to
cheese factories The butter market Is ay,
The St Pul took light shipments for Port
land at prices netting local sellers 24 to 25
cents, and would have taken much more at
23 ceru. had that figure been accepted. The
indications arc that prices will be shaded for
he nxt et earner to the. Sound. Epgs are
abundant and weak. Receipts, 54.200 pounds
butter. 12. 100 pounds cheese; 44.760 dozen
The orange market was less active and
easier, buyers having loaded up largely yes
terday and the bulk of present stocks being
In such soft condition that sales must be made

daily In fair -condition. The cherry crop Is
likely to be early this season. Apples are

crates of Australian onions arrived, to be

Other early vegetables were easier.
The grain market wsa quiet, with option

RALLIES POORLY HELD
ACTIVITY IN STOCKS- ON A DE
SCENDING SCALE OF PRICES.
Preparations Made for Subscriptions
to . Japanese Loan Lead to
NEW YORK. March 2S. Today's stock
market was an affair of -constant fluctuations.
giving an appearance of uncertainty to the
temper of the speculation, but the fluctuations
were mostly below last night's level. The
occasional rallies were poorly held, and the
end of the day showed the average of prices
considerably below last night. The activity
was nearly all on a descending scale of
prices, the occasional rallies leading up to
dullness and neglect, showing the subsidence
of demand from the shorts at the higher
level. Call mosey again touched 4 per cent.
and the outlook in the money market plainly
was the most direct factor In the operations
of the cay.
Preparations were being made for the sub
scriptions to the new Japanese loan, which
Is to be offered tomorrow, a 75.000,000 in
stallment being New York's portion. Thoso
In charge of the offering claim that every
safeguard will be adoptee to protect tho
money market from disturbance, and that
the operation will be largely In the nature of
transfer of book accounts between banks.
But Wall street has an old experience of such
cssurapcc4 and Is well aware that an opera
tion of that magnitude Is not perfected witn-
out a necessary shifting of loans on a large
scale. The amount of disturbance resulting
In the money market is likely to be dependent
on the width of the margin surplus above
the legal reserve requirements. As the sur
plus is Just now unusually low for the period
of the year, there were soma natural mis
givings that the money market might not
escape the Spring flurry.
In addition to the money situation, the mar
ket had to pass another day without any
verification of numerous merger or dividend
rumors. A Southern Pacific, dividend had
been definitely set down for yesterday, and.
not being forthcoming, there was disappoint
ment on the part of an element waicn naa
bought on that report. v
The report that St. Paul contemplated me
exoendlture of 100.000.000 for an extension
to the Pacific Coast was formally dele4 by
the chairman of the board of that company.
The denial was effective In Inducing selling
of the stock, although similar denials, of
ficial or Informal, have been made of nearly
all the recent deal rumors.
There was evident unloading also of Read
ing on the part of recent large speculative
buyers of that stock. Wlfh the speculative
favorites. Including Union racinc, si. mm.
New York Central and Reading thus under
pressure, small Influence was exerted upon
sentiment by the few Advances in ise in
dustrial class, which still manifested tBem-
selves in a scattered manner. London was a
heavy seller In this market, and there were
reports of a violent disturbance . en the St.
Petersburg bourse- Pans was especially i
f ected In sympathy, bt the manifestations

MMENSE WHEAT CROP
Bearish Advices Cause a Sharp Break
In the July Option at
CHICAGO. March 2S. Weakness was mani
fested In the wheat market from the start,
the July delivery opening 6c lower to a
shade higher at 9Q90c May was un
changed to He higher at 1.1261.12. Lower
prices at Liverpool and continued excellent
weathsr conditions in the United States were
the factors contributing to the initial weak
ness of the July option. A feeble rally oc
curred shortly after the opening, resulting In
May advancing, to 31.13 and July to S0c
Moderate receipts In the Northwest were
partly responsible for the upturn. The show
of strength however, was only momentary.
the market soon easing off again on persist
ent selling of July. The May option was
comparatively inactive throughout the day.
.Many additional reports regarding the ex
cellent condition of the new crop were re
ceived, and these added to the weakness ot
the situation. One example of these bear
ish advices was a report estimating the
total yield ot wheat in Kansas at 115.000,000
bushels, which is 45.COO.000 bushels in ex
cess, of the average crop. The market be
came extremely weak late In the day, and
the close was almost at the lowest point.
Final quotations on July were at SSSc. May
closed at 1.12, a net loss of lie
Sentiment la the corn pit was bearish, and
prices showed a material decline. May opened
shade lower at 48c, and closed at -oc.
Good weather, the break In other grains and
the weakness of the cash article caused heavy
liquidation of oats, resulting in declines In
all options. May closed at 29c.

decline In grains'. At the close May pork was
