UnEB GOES DO
Sales Are Slow Notwithstand
STORING ALREADY BEGUN
Hopmen Interested in Proposed
fleeting of Growers Good Move
ment of Flour to Japan.
Talk of Wheat Exports.
Interest in local produce circles in -the past
neek centered in the butter situation. The
rrarkp was unsettled, as is usual at this
nirc of year, and was further complicated by
t' e lafk of uniformity In prices. Green prod
tre and fruits are coming to the front wjth
the approach of .Summer. The meeting- of
h j'jrrowcrs, called for next week, and the
t7s that 1t Is proposed to take arc engag
i g tbe attention of men In that trade in the
Ji'jsenfe of much actual business. The East
ern Oregon wool market has become active
aid many large sales arc reported. The
wrrat market la dragging. There is a good
v c- cment of flour to the Orient, largely ly
ran-.p steamers, and e-rdors for May and June
de.ii rry have net yet ceased.
WHEAT A Tow inquiries for small lots of
wheat arc being received from the East, but
thrre is no pressing demand from that quar-te-,
and the Eastern movement may be said
t- have closed for the- season. The San
Irancic-o market is also dull, though some
sirall lts are going South by steamer.
WMIr no open business Is going on in an
ex. ort way, it is rumored- that negotiations
are on foot for the chartering of a ship to
take tut some ol the grain stored here, and
1' is even paid that several cargoes may be
set afloat for Europe before the new crop
comes xn. Considerable buying has been done
,n the past week by millers throughout the
Nc-lhwest. but they find it hard to get to
gather much wheat as the farmers are gen
eTlyvery Arm holders.
A summary of European market conditions
- s given by the London correspondent of the
No-thwc stern Miller of April 12, as follow:
There la little that is new and nothing
that .a cheerful to say about the wheat trade
in Eurore during the past, week. Prices have
been difficult to maintain In the absence of
bujers. who are frightened by the con
tinued Immense shipments from Argentina,
and by the size of the quantity afloat for Eu
r-re. which now exceeds six million quarters,
nminst 5.200.000 Quartern last year. and
3 5S5.000 quartern in 1002.
fjpplies in this country during the next
two mouth are bound to be ampler tne
ouantKy on passage assures this and the
fade opinion therefore is that If the grow
lnc crop prospects be f ai-orable " in June the
season will go through, fo to speak, un
affected further than it has been by the
extraordinary conditions on your side of the
It may be explained that the large Ar
gentina shipments are due to two causes
firs., of course, there has been a bigger yop
tian had been expected, and, second.
Erowers become due. and as much of iVi
fops is sold before that rwrlod as possible.
C ntinental buyers have hold aloof in the
expectation that Argentine wheat would have
to g.ve way In price, in which they have
"jrc.-tly gauged the situation. Now, however,
Continental buyers are purchasing more free-
'.. an3 are expected 10 govon bujdngrsUJcrally
curing the next three months
It is significant that In France, notwtth
sanding tne downward mox-ement abroad
Triers of home-grown wheat have latterly
beer improving rather decidedly, which
attributed to the fact that farmers stocks
are getting very reduced, which, indeed
ugv.t to be the case if the last crop was
no larger than officially estimated, namely, 3
000.000 quarters, -which is about 0,000.000
t q jartrrs below the home requirements,
& far, little or no foreign wheat has been
Imported into France this season for con
sumption, but the impression is growing that,
r-e Jong, this country will become a buyer of
foreign wheat on quite an Important scale.
There Is, however, one feature common to
poetically all European countries, that
distinctly adverse to any immediate improve
ment in wheat values, and that Is the al
most universally unrcmuneratlve sale
fiiur. 1 never remember having received so
many complaints from so many countries, of
tt-e bad sale of flour
In France, although the mills have reduced
the.r output there are accumulations of the
manufactured article for which no outlet can
At? found; In Belgium the same la the case,
while in Hungary the trade Is almost de
moralized because there Is no demand for cx
port for the higher grades, which have no
pale at home.
In Germany the millers are also complain
lng both of the sale of wheat, flour and ry
U is Interesting to note that rye 1:
abundant in Germany this season that for
the first time for many years the exports of
rye and rye flour exceed the Imports.
England matters are not so bad; our millers
are turning out more flour than they ever
did before, but the competition among them
Is so acute that profits are reduced to
In a general way I think that it is probable
that the consumption of wheaten flour has
been somewhat restrletcd by the higher prices
and by other causes, and It Is also a fact
that the European imports so far this season
are not so large as was expected early In
the season. This Is especially the case i
regard to France and Italy, while in Austria
Hungary, where a large Import trade was ex
pcrted. owing- to the failure of the last crop,
'orejgn wheat is practically unsalable and
prices have latterly come down considerably.
FLOUR. FEED. ETC. The regular Oriental
steamer Just sailed carried out 47.000 bar
rels of flour, nearly all for Japan, k tramp
steamer in the harbor is loading 55,000 bar
rels for portspn the same country, and an
ouier vessel auout aue win takc.(Mit some
60.000 barrels. This represents Japanese or
ders lately received In anticipation of an
Increase in the war tax. The djrs are
EtiH coming in and It is possible that enough
business can be worked up to fill another
esse I. In addition to this there is a fairly
jcod Chinese Inquiry, as space has been re
served for over 40,000 barrels for Hong Kong
oi the regular Mner to depart next month. In
other directions the export demand for flour
is quiet. There is a good steady home move
ment and local prices are maintained.
Mlllfeed isrmovlng slowly, as there Is
plenty of green feed now. but stocks are
small and prices hold up. Oats- and barley
arc dragging. Hay is weak as a quantity is
still on nana and much will be carried ever.
HOPS A meeting of the hopgrowers of the
Northwest will be held at the Hotel Port
land next Tuesday afternoon to take steps
to put the market on a better footing. This
will probably bo ilone by agreolng to with
draw from the market, or form seme kind of
a pool. If the growers will all line xup to
gether thete is no doubt they will ac
complish their purpose and compel brewers to
pay prices asked, but if many of the holders
stay out and continue "feeding" the market,
as in the past, no one need expect values to
- be raised very soon.
A considerable quantity of- hops has been
offering On the market In tho past few days,
mainly by Chinese growers, who need money
-work, their yards. Most of the white
srowcrs who were lately on the market with
drew when Ihcy heard of the proposed meet-
PRODUCE The butter market is fast get;
ting down to its proper level. All the city
creameries are down to cents, the Ha-
zlewood Company yesterday nnnounoiug that
price, to take effect today. Fiont street is
quoting 18 to 20 cents and California but
ter can be had in quantities from ISM cents
down. At these values the tone is still
weak, and a further decline Is looked for.
"When the quality "Improves"-" a. little more.
storing will begin, which will help to settle
Eggs arc Arm and higher than a week ago.
Receipts are not ,to heavy and the Easter
demand has also Nstlmulaiedthe market.
Chicken receipts were heavy Tuesday, but
again fell -off. and tprlces are easily kept up
to tbe top notch.
Potatoes are easier here as the San Fran
cisco market slumped under heavy arrivals
from this state. Another factor in the local
weakness Is the expected arrival of 10 cars
from the East In a few days. The onion sea
son Is practically at an end.
GROCERIES. MEATS. ETC Staple gro
ceries arc all as last quoted. Jobbers report
healthy Increase In business over last
month and believe the 'activity will continue
Turpentine declined 3 cents a gallon yes
Thre have beon .good receipts of livestock
at the Portland yards, and prices have va
ried but little during tbe week. Dressed veal
is plentiful. Dressed pork Is steady for small
and medium sizes. Mutton is lower and slew
to . iHoe. Spring lamfcs are also slow and
re not quoted above 7 or 8 eents with the
Baker County Wool at 18 Cents.
BAKER CITY. Or.. April IS. Late last
nlcht IV. G. Ayre. of Durkee. the Baker
County sheep king, and one of the few who
did not sell his Spring clip of wool when
contracts were being made six weeks ago at
14 and 15 cents, sold his dip, estimated at
50.000 pounds, yet to be made, at 16 cents
to Frank Johnson, the Boston wool buyer.
This Is believed by commission men to be the
highest price ever paid for wool in this county.
Ayre has a number of very large flocks now
lambing, with expectation of 105 per cent
Increase. Shearing will begin about May 20.
Idaho Crop Report.
The Idaho weekly crop bulletin says In part:
In 'favored districts later fruits are rapidly
coming into bloom, and much Woom has
fallen from early trees. Frequent frosts have
wrought considerable Injury to preaohes and
apricots, and in some Instances to hardier va
rieties. The damage to apples appears to
have been most serious in the case of the
Seeding of Spring grain was somewhat re
tarded by unfavorable weather; growth of
grain has been slow, but most of the orop
is In thrifty condition; In northern counties
Wheat is reported to be stoollng well. A eon
siderable amount of alfalfa land Tias been
plowed up and Is being sowed to grain. Germi
nation of some recently sown grain has heen
retarded by drying winds.
Hay crops and range grass are reported to
be doing well though growth during the week
has not been rapid, having been retarded y
low nocturnal temperatures. Grass In south-
weetern foothills Is the best in years.
Cattle, sheep and horses are being turned
urwin the ranffe In increasing numbers; the
general condition of stock Is better than usu
al at this time of the year.

FLUTTER IHOK TR
RENEWED SLUMP IN NORTHERN
SECURITIES ON CURB.
Speculative Sentiment Again Turns
on Technical Market Condi- .
"tlons-s-Rally Late in Day.
NEW' YORK.' April 19. Speculative senti
ment on the stock exchange turned again on
technical market conditions ratljer than on
intrinsic conditions of values and the news
bearing on them. There was another flutter
among speculative traders In stocks caused-
by the renewed slump In Northern Securities
on the curb. That stock did not touch yes
terday's prices, however, and Its downward
course was effectually checked and a sub
stantial recovery effected, with corresponding
efTect on the market for stocks within the
stock, exchange The Implication drawn from
the movement had to do .largeiy witn tne
market position of the large speculation com- ;
mined- to the high prices for the stocks, but
the causes for their advance hes heen purely
Within the realms, of rumor, and a- great deal
of doubt and apprehension of the reliability
of. these rumors Is Induced by the feverish
downward plunges In the stocks.
The Impenetrable mystery which has been
maintained -regarding the.- ?reat projects said
to' be in contemplation by the railroads' lends
Its influence to sudden fesrs as well as buoy
.ant hopes and to a. sudden reversal, from ex
treme confidence to full rejection of All ffylng
reports. This was seen In the. tendency of
the ' current stock market rumors to face
about from faith In the wholesale harmony In
the competing railroad Interests to fears of a
renewed outbreak -of all the old hostility of
tho period before the Northern Securities
formation. For Instance, doubts were urged
of the legal right of Union Pacific to hold
Northern Pacific or Great Northern- stock,
which would come to It as the proceeds of
the Northern Securities dissolution. The
opinion of the Supreme Court, pronounced In
cidentally In the Northern Securities decision,
that the turning over of control of Northern
Pacific to. Union Pacific would contravene the'
Sherman "law. was cited as authority for this
The alleged Intention to- preclude minority
representation from the directorate of the
two railroads was also discussed, with the
suggestions of a spirit of hostility rather than
harmony prevailing In the railroad world.
The so-called "mystery stocks" In the mar
ket suffered most actuely from the liquida
tion, but rallied effectively on the late re
newal of harmony reports. There were no
dealings in Northern Pacific but nominal
quotations were made from the stocks "when
released." The bid and asked prices thus
showed the price range well sustained near
the recent high level. Great Northern pre
ferred sold down 17W and rallied 5. This re-
hi-A nm onnmhontlnn that the Stocks
ere likely to slump when the retlUtrlbution
eplenlshed the supply In the market. It was
vldent also that many of the brokers ana
commUslon.houes. which were the largest
Uaellcrs during the heavy decline yesterday.
were busy buying to recover their nomings.
The persistency of this demand .helped to re
store confidence and developed strength in
the latter part of the day
The aggressive rise in the Southern group
aroused -come new conjectures of Important
financing projects. The promise of record
,prll earnings In metal stocks helped mat
group. Amalgamated copper rose in mnjuus-
tion with the speculative rumors regaraing to
morrow's dividend meeting. Reports of the
receipt of very heavy orders .strengthened
American Locomotive. United States Steel
preferred responded on the recevery of con
fidence In conditions in that trade. .Report
that the stock tax bill Is not to become a law
of the state were made effective upon semi-
ment. The traders who fought the rally Dy
selling stocks short were forced to cover at
the laat and made the closing the strongest ot
Bends were Irregular. Total sales, par va:-
ue. $3,419,000. United States bends were an
unchanged on call. ' '
Northern Securities closed today on
curb at 172k bU, and 172-i aked.
The board of Mvernot u - tn.C to&K ex

July was In good demand from influential

1 clique was endeavoring to dispose of a
part of the clique holding. A factor decided
ly instrumental In causing the decline was
a scles of. titeuatohcts indicating favorable
progress' in the development of Winter wheat.
Predictions of rain, followed hy warmer
weather In the Southwest, gave additional en
couragement to the beam. An unusually lib
eral increase In primary receipts aided the
selling movement. Several large commisslon-
houroi were aetfve sellers of July which, as a
result, declined to 87Vic. Meantime May sold
oft to $1.13. Just lcfore the close part
of the loss In July wan regained on covering

market left off weak with May c lower, at
$1.1N.. and July off c. at $87VsC
Notwithstanding the weakness of wheat,
the corn market had a comparatively firm
undertone. July closed unchanged at 47c.
Weakness of wheat started liberal profit-
taking in oats. July closed with a loss of 8
Extreme dullness pervaded the provision
