HEAVY FLOUR TRADE
Rush Orders From Japan Make
FOUR CARGOES .NOW IN SIGHT
Shipments From Portland In April
and May Will Be at Least 206,
000. Barrels More Vessels
. May Be Engaged.
The flHlng- of rash flour orders for -Japan
ha Imparted activity to both the local flour
market arid the shipping industry. The Im
provement la the demand was occasioned by
the fart that the Japanese duty on floor is
o bo advanced about 15 cents gold" por barrel
cn July 1, and Importers of that country have
T-aced large orders here early In order to ant-Spate
it. As the steamers of the regular
line could not provide sufficient space for all
he shipments, exporters have chartered two
f "earners on their own aooouot. oik of which,
the Dumbarton, will carry nothing but flour,
and he other, the .Ferixiojva, will take floar
and wheat. The shipments of flour direct from
Portland to the Orient in AprM and May, ae
already arranged, will be as follows:
Arai?onia ... , . 4(5,900
Dumbarton ... GH.UG0
f f'nnpn ...... ... 49.600
Nie.imedla . K).00O
Aside from the export business there te a
throng local' inquiry for flour aud large ship
ments' are also made by steamer to the Sou-tti.
Lat local prices have boen fully maintained.
"WHEAT The wheat market continued very
'"u. In the past week. Praottcalty U
tuning was done by millers. The Eastern
and California inquiry wac very alow. The
Ofcx-ago market yesterday took a wide Jump
and If the advance ks maintained today,
local prices wilt "bo lifted. Dealers quoted
no change yesterday.
Foreign market conditions are reported by
tl.o London correspondent of the Northwestern
Milier, under date of Maroh 15, as follows:
v "'There Is vary little obange to note in the
general wheat market, and there Is certainly
" cry little disposition shown to speculate for
forward shipment. The shipments to Europe
rave been unexpectedly large during the last
fnur weeks, averaging 1.178,000 quarters a
week, the result being that there has been
a further Increase in the quantity afloat,
which now reaches the unwieldy total of
r-.6G0.000 quarters, c. which no le than
4,235,000 are nominally destined for the Unit
ed Kingdom. Unless, therefore, the continen
tal buyers come to our aid by intercepting a
good many of the cargoes afloat "for orders,"
we are threatened with very large Imports
the next month.
Under thee circumstances buyers pay little
attention to the evidently serious damage
sustained by the Indian crop, and to the fact
"hat the shipments from that country have
largely decreased and seem likely to be dis
appointingly small next season.
The Argentine Republic, however, is getting
Tld of Its wheat with unusual haste, the ship
ments from January 1 being of unparalleled
magnitude, and comparing, as follows with
iliose of previous years. In quarters:
Jan. 1 to Total for
March 9. Europe.
7. 1.140.000 S.740.000
2.200.000 a 250.000
1S39 .. 1.100,000 7.910.00
l :4ere are no signs 6o far 'of tills year's crop j
b!ng less than last year's in quantity, but i
rather the reverse. The quality; however. Is
distinctly Inferior to last year's, especially is
regard to the Rosario-Santa Fe wheats, which
hitherto have been the favorites of our millers;
iiKst o" the wheat which has arrived so far
from Roiarlo is very deceptive in quality and
I.ght In weight, running from S3 to 01 pound
Instead of from 02 to 65 pounds, as was the
case last year. More attention is, therefore.
rvelng paid to the Bahia Blanca, Barletta
Russo wheats, grown In the province of
Buenos Ayrcs, and some of which weigh 84
to 60 pounds per bushel.
Meanwhile it is a faot that should be noted
hat the strong American spring wheat is
adly missed, and there la, in my opinion,
I'ttle doubt that If next season Minnesota
flours arc abundant and' at reasonable price
as compared with our own, they will regain
their lost ground.
Nothing could be weaker than some of the
continental flours lately imported into this
Russian wheat shipments continue unchecked
and the demoralization on the railways seems
eo far not seriously to have affected wheat.
The exports from Russia, so far this season
easily beat all previous records.
The present temper of the trade in London
perms to be that the time has gone for the
absence of American wheat to have any fur
ther effect thl6 season, and in event of the
growing crops in Europe and America proving
be good, present prices will be difficult to
maintain. At present it may be said that the
rop condition In England would hardly be im
proved. In France, the weather conditions are
now very satisfactory but the orop bad a very
bed start in the center and the East. In Ger
many, the outlook is favorable. In Austria
Hungary, the crops are In excellent condition.
In Roumania. the area is Increased and the
rop has passed through the winter very well.
In Bussia. the autumn-sown wheat crop has
eo tax come to no harm. With regard to the
spring wheat crop which Is much the more
important. It Is regarded as highly probable
that the area sown w4il be xnuoh less than
usual owing to the scarcity of labor. In
Spain and Italy, the conditions are not so
favorably spoken of.
HOPS The hop market has fallen again into
a stagnant condition. The late export flurry
In the East has subsided, but it had the
effect of leaving the market in a stronger
reitlon. so far a holders are concerned. All
the weak dealers have been cleaned out of
the market and the hops remaining unsold
are now In very firm hands. It is impossible
to buy hops from growers under 5 cents or
even at that figure On the other hand, buy
ers are not pressing business and have re
sumed their former waiting attitude
Tho Kentish Observer of March 18 said of
xrnrket conditions in England:
"There -was a slight improvement in the
demand from brewers toward the c4e&3 of
trc week, but the inquiry has again fallen
rrr, and business can only be effected at such
1 w prices as 6 10s to 10 15s per hundred
wight. There are, however, comparatively
few parcels on offer, and holders aro very
firm as a rule. The formatton of the Hop
riamrs' Syndicate has ,ow 'been completed,
and it is understood that about GO per cent
cr -r-r uneoM hops are in the pool.
' W. H. and K. LeMay. hep factors. Lon
don, report: 'There Is n very general demand
nil descriptions of hope at hardening rates,
'"cisumers with six months consumption In
'" nt of them, before another crop can be
Ta:sed, are becoming anxious to secure suffi
'lent to cover their requirements. The spar
?Uy of stocks points to th probability that
many will have serious difficulty in finding
what they require. The foreign markets are
aCvanring. The Imports of bone into Eng
land from January 1 to February 2S.' iocs,
were 18.974 hundred weight. For the correl
spnnding period last year 78.842 hundred
weight. The exports of foreign hops from
England from January 1 to February 28. 3995
're 17-iS hundred weight. For the corre
sending period last year 1X41 hundred
The latoet Nuremburg report mye: "The
endency of the market shows -jh alteration.
Very little business is being transacted Just
row, and present values show a decline of
y about 5s or 6s per hundred weight in compari
to quotations ruling a fortnight - ago."
PRODUCE The collapse of the butter mar
ket was the sensation In produce drrtofi. A
fcudd-n drop of 5 rents a pound was made by
the c'.t creameries, immediately followed by
the country creameries. It was brought about
by the heavy Influx of California butter, -which
owing to the lew San Franolsco market could
be landed here considerably tinder Portland
prices. The San Francisco quotations have,
staee dropped another notch, and a further de
ntine in looal prises seems inevitable. Trading
was mere active immediately following the
declhse, but has si nee been checked, buyers
hesitating to take hold on a falling market.
Eggs have ruled weak as receipts have
been very heavy and the city and outside de
mand slew. Considerable quantities are going
The chicken market Is very strong with light
arrivals and an urgent city demand.
Potatoes are firm so far as fancy stock is
concerned. ' The bulk of the offerings are of
ordinary grade, which are dragging'. Seed
potatoes are plentiful and arc lower. Onions
are steady and 'unchanged.
GROCERIES. MEATS. TC. No changes
were reported in the staple grocery list. New
prices on Mason fruit jars for the fiOS season
were announced, which are somewhat below
those of the opening of last season.
Liberal receipts of livestock at the Portland
.yards met with a generally good demand and
prices were maintained. Dressed moat are
not doing so well. The market is flooded with
veal and much of it Is being put into cold
storage. Perk fe also weak and lower.
DATES FOB, "WOOL BALES.
Fixed by the State "Woolfirro-iTcrs' Associa
tion. PENDLETON. April 5. (Special.) The Ore
gon State TVoolgrowers Association officers
have agreed upon dates for sales days for thi
year as follows:
Pendleton May 22, Juno IS and June 20.
lleppner Mny 25. June 9. Juno 20 and June
Shanlke June 6. June 23 and July 6.
The results of the sales days during the past
three seasons have been or appreciable value
to the sheepmen in the matter of prices re
ceived for their dips. Buyers submit sealed
btda on the different lots of wool and only
those who are the highest bidders are the
successful purchasers. In speaking of tho
benefits of this plan over the old system. J. IL
Owl nil. secretary of tho Oregon Woolgrowers'
Association, yesterday said that the tendency
was to keep the prices up and that a oeat
to a cent and a half more was realised by
sheepmen for their clips. Buyers do not favor
the system and whenever it Is possible thoy
urge the growers to dispose of their clips be
fore the data of the sales days. A number
of buyers for Eastern houses are now In the
city for the purpose of looking over the wool

BULL CLIQUE SENDS JUP MAY
WHEAT AT CHICAGO.
Distant . Deliveries Barely Steady
.Throughout the Session Crop
News Is Bearish.
CHICAGO. April 5. Strength In May wheat
"rati In evidence at tho start, that option
opening He to 4c higher at $1.14 to $L14U.
Distant deliveries, however, were "weak, July
being- off r$So to HS-fce at S7s to 87c
The causa of tho strength of May was an ac
tive demand from shorts in anticipation of
bull raids. Weakness of the July and Sep
tember deliveries was duo to lower cables and
to continued favorable weather conditions.
Frost was reported as far south as Texas,
but temperatures recorded were not low enough
to suggest any injury to the growinjr wheat
crop. Conditions In the Northwest were also
most favorable for seeding. Slate reports from
Ohio. Kentucky and Micsourl were received
and all were extremely bearish. Manipulation
of May by the bull clique, however, was
enough of a factor to counterbalance all theso
bearish Influences. As the session progressed
the price of May mounted higher and higher
unUl it had reached $1.17vi. The strength of
May gradually started covering movement
In July which later developed into quite an
active demand. July rose to 8Sc, where It
closed with a gain of 4lc May closed 3
cents higher at $1.17.

was the active covering of May ard a. con

UNION PACIFIC STOCK INCREASE.
Announcement Has Unfavorable Effect on
New York Market.
NEW YORK. April 5. The intention to In
crease the preferred stock of Union Pacific by
$100,000,000 was not known to the Wall-etreet
public until this morning, and was a general
surprise. This Incident formed the central
point of interest ,ln the daye stock market.
Union Pacific has been the subject of gossip
and surmise for many months during the courjo
of Its remarkable rise, but none of tho numer
ous conjectures regarding it pointed to the
measure announced this morning. This fact
in Itself aroused a doubt that a large part
of the reports which have circulated regarding
this stock were ill-informed. The effect on
the common stock was unfavorable, as was
not unnatural, in view of the prior privilege
of the preferred stock, now to be doubled In
amount, to dividends to the extent of 4 per
cent. The common stock was offered heavily
both for domestic and foreign accounts. It
was vigorously supported, however, all day.
Brokers before the opening- were making of
fers to take all the stock that anyone would
cell, and the same brokers were diligent buyers
up to the Isvel of last nlgfit. The support was
then relaxed again, but renewed at any periods
of an acute weakness.
Officials of tho company declined to add any
thing to the official circular as to the specific
purposea for 'which tho proceeds of the stock
are to be used or as to the p-oposed time for
Issuing it. Assertions were freely made, how
ever, among the speculators in the stock that
the project had to d with tho proposed com
bination of Union Pacific with New York Cen
tral and Chicago & Northwestern. It was
pointed out that President Harrlman. in main
taining the wisdom of seeking capital require
ments through the Issue of stock rather than
through the creation of fixed Interest-bearing
obligations, had interjected into the official
circular the remark. "Especially such as arise
In connection -with, tho acquisition, of stocks of
other companies." This was adduced to Indi
cate that a merger project 'was in view, but
Wall street had formed the opinion that the
supposed merger was to be accomplished by
the exchange of bonds of a holding company
for existing securities, which would not In
volve a great outlay of cash. The prospect
of a $100,000,000 block of new stock, there
fore, came as a shock to sentiment and em
phasized the Effect of tho huge volume of Is
sues which Is being added to constantly from
The determined support of Union Pacific
was supplemented by "notable upward move
ments In a number of sfecial stocks, so that
the depressing effect of the Union Pacific an
nouncement was modified to a considerable ex
tent. The railroad list, the Southern group
and Canadian Pacific wero very strong. The
only news to account for the movement was
based on earnings and reports of possible divi
dend increases. American Smelting headed
another strong group. Including tho Lead
stocks and some others In affiliated metal
trades. The United States Steel stocks were
sluggish meet of the day. but they moved up
late and helped to sustain the general list by
sympathy. A miscellaneous list of Industrial
stocks showed considerable strength. Tho rail
road list as a whole, however, was held back.
Sterling exchange was strong again, in spite,
of the great ease of money In foreign centers.
This was attributed to the selling of stocks
fiere for foreign account. In some of the Very
active stocks the nr rtiin,.. . a....
proved to bo email, and tha market closed ir-
Bonds were easy. Total sales, $4,420,000.
United States bonds were all unchanged on
