To J. A. Willis, of Myrtle Creek, belongs
the honor of marketing the 'first Oregon straw
berries of this .Mason. Tvo-crates of fruit
from his ranch were received by Bell & Co.
yesterday. They wore taken by F. OBarnea
&. Co. at $6 a crate The borrics were packed
24 pounds to the box, and were of excellent
appearance and color, and nearly as fine as
the famous Hood River fruit that will soon be
Portland fruitmon cannot remember when
Oregon berriee'ever before reached this mar
ket so early. The soason is fully -three
weeks earlier than usual. Conditions have
been most favorable in all thc-berry grow
ing districts and an immense crop Is as
sured. California berries are coming in very heav
ily. Those received yesterday cold well, as
the weather was strongly in their favor, though
the quality of much of the fruit was not first
class. This was otflns to rain in California
and also to delay in delivery, as a part of
the shipment arrived Sunday. Quotations
ranged from $1.75$2 per crate.
California cherries were on sale yesterday
at $1.502 per box. The best offerings mot
with ready sale.
BUTTER AGAix LOWER
Another Decline Announced by the City
The butler market took another drop yes
terday, as was expected. The city creameries
lowered their quotation on oxtra creamery
to 20 cents, which. It is hoped, will be the
bottom of the market for this season. Stocks
are piling up rapidly and the butter makers
' on eluded that the only way to move them
would" be to lower the price. Considerable
quantities have gone lnte-etdrage already, and
much more will be stored at the new prise,
which estoc-ulri Improve-the situation...
On Front street :butter is quoted""anywher
from t to 20 cents, and net much of. it
is reported to be moving. OutsMc speculators
tie feeHRg the market.- "but hat not dono
much buying yet. The low prices liere have
shut out California butter.
The egg market has turned weak again with
havy receipts and a falling off in the local
and shipping demand. Most of the firms that
have been storing eggs have put away enough
for the time.
Potatoes May Improve Later.
The potato market Is dull with the shippers.
The weakonlng of San Francisco prices has
made it difficult to buy here at the lower
figures that .are named .as a consequence.'
Stocks In the country arc not heavy and
huiders. as a rule, are very firm In -their
views. One leading ' shipper 'estimates the
available supply here at only 6000 sacks. Colo-,
rado, potatoes are coming in freely and are
going readily into local trade at lower prices
tiian Oregon growers ask. It Is probable that
the depression in the San Francisco market
Is only temporary and that former values will
be again realized. Cbojce .Oregon Burbanks
are always in demand there when they can
Wool Selling Rapidly.
At the rate that wool Is now selling In
Eastern Oregon, very little will be left for
the sales days that commence in the latter
part of May. "A leading dealer estimates
that fully three-fourths of the dtp In the
Eastern counties has already been disposed of.
Buyers arc paying 'Bh a 18 cents for
best grades. There has been less activity in
the country around Shanlko than in other
parts of Eastern Oregon and the amount
offered at the sealed bid sales there may be
as large as was anticipated, but It is probable
that the sales at some other points may be
Wheat Market Weaker.
The further slump In the Chicago wheat
market has had something of a sympathetic
effect on the market here and prices are,
therefore, quoted weaker. Nothing, however,
has occurred to cause any aotual change in the
local situation. There Is no' Eaetern demand
for Northwestern wheat and very little In
, quiry from California, consequently values
here do not show much effect of the sudden
changes elsewhere. It' is the opinion of men
In the grain trade that the slide In the East
has struck bottom and If prices are down to
actual values healthier conditions generally

STOCK PRICES BREAK
EXPECTED HAPPENS AT- OPEN
IXG OF NEW STORK 3IARKET.
Heavy Liquidation as Result oL Dc
vclopnicnts of Past Few Days.
U. P. Leads In Decline.
NEW TORK, April 24. A-break In the price
o stocks today, seemed "a foregone conclusion.
The promise 61 such a movement was so
clear that professional operators sold enough
stock during the first hour to more than
cover "the requirements and they devoted a
period of the day to covering their short con
tracts with the result of practically repairing
the losses. It was evident that bargain hunt
ers were alo on hand and their willingness
to take stocks at the break was a material
factor in rallying the market.
The-technical situation pointed conclusively
to considerable liquidation today. The heavy
de-:ilnt cf Thursday last. lnce which time
trading on the exchange has been suspended,
Induced a great many calls focaddltlonal mar
gins on the brokers and commission-houses. It
was known before the market opened that
these calls had brought back many responses
ordering the selling out of Holdings. Specula
tive sentiment had been so' far shaken by
last week's developments that no effective sup
port was to be anticipated unless at consid
erable concessions In prices.
The even. of Saturday's wheat market
forced the conclusion that the attempt to,
corner the May option had been abandoned
and the obvious conclusion that heavy specu
lative losses had been sustained, pointed to
further liquidation in stocks as a recuperative
The pressure centered upon the etocks which
have been favorites In the speculation on ac
count of tb merger stories. Union Pacific
leading the railroad list In point of activity
and weakness. Northern Pacific's reentry In
the market was the signal for sales down to
163, compared with the recently prevailing
nominal price of ISO bid. The prevailing dis
cussion in stock market circles was of the
danger of reopening of hostilities and of com
petitive projects in the railroad world in
strong contrast to the recent abiding faith in
the mutual determination of all the great
powers of the railroad world to come together
and put Into force projects for the common
Thursday's flurry in the call money market
to 7 per cent had served to overthrow the
conviction that the case of the money mar
ket was incapable of being disturbed. The
bank statement published on Saturday during
the interval of the trading showed that kans
had continued to expand In spite of the liquida
tion in stocks. The offering today of $23,
000,000 of New York City bonds made heavy
requirements on the money market. Next
month the $100.000.000'Tennsylvanla bond sub

The news of the Milwaukee defalcation
caused lnev table unsettlemcnt again and g?ve
force to the feeling of uneasiness s the ef
fect of lotses in the wheat collapse The
reaction in prices carried Union Pacific to
the lowest of the day and made a broad in
road on the recovery which had been estab
lished during the middle portion of the t'ay
and made the closing weak. The remarkable
rise In the Louisville & Nashville' group at
tracted attention to the published reports .of
plans for the formation of a great trunk line
from North to South by a combination of ex
isting properties. Those stocks relapsed
equally with the rest of the market in the

Millions of Bushels Change Owner

tant Deliveries Affected.
CHICAGO, April 24. Wheat for May deliv
ery sold down to 92&c a bushel, a decrease of
71i cents, compared with Saturday's closing
quotations. At the close, the market had
rallied to 93 cents.
The sensational decline today, following the
big break of last week, was the result of
general liquidation participated In by John
W. Gates, the erstwhile bull leader. Millions
of bushels of May wheat changed ownership
during tbc day's exciting session. At the
close of trading i: was claimed by observers
that all of the enormous line held by the
Wall-Street clique had been liquidate!. The
markt became meady late in the day on an
improved demand. Armour & Co. being credit
ed with heavy purchases of both the May and
July options. Tho slump in May created ex
treme weakness in distant deliveries, the July
option closing at a set loss of 2 cents. Corn,
oats and provisions likewise were affected by
the break In wheat. May -corn being off I'il?
IHc at the close. July corn is down lic
July oats show a loss ot Utl?ic Provisions
are down 7HiIt52H cents.
The break in May wheat began with initial
transactions, opening quotations being 2 to
4 cents lower, at 96S0Sc July was oft
at 66g86lic During the first few minutes
of business Armour & Co. made an effort
to give the market some support, but traders
In general regarded the movement as an at
tempt to create a higher market on which to
dispose of additional Gates wheat. The sell
ing was so general aad o persistent that
soon all efforts- to stop the decline were
abandoned. Everybody seemed to have wheat
for sale and few appeared willing to buy.
Before the session was half over the price
of May had dropped to 92Hc Meantime the
July option had sold off to 84ic Many trad
ers were of the opinion that during the heavy
selling early In the session the remain ler of
the Gates lino of May wheat was entirety
In addition to the slump In the price of May,
distant deliveries were affected by heavy
rains throughout the Winter wheat section,
and predictions ot more rain to follow increased
the bearlshnwa. During the last part of the
session the market was comparatively steady.
The July option wa given support by Armour
& Co.j and fresh rumors were rife that Gates
has associated himself with Armour for a
bull campaign in the more distant option.
There was also a good general demand, but
prices made little response, fluctuations In
May during the last hour being confined with
in a cent's range. At the close the May de
livery sold at 93c at a net loss of 7c July
waa down 2c at &4kif4?sC.
The corn market was unable to resist the
break in wheat, heavy liquidation causing ex-'
treme weakness. July opened 'i'SHc lower,
at 47H547c, and closed at 46Vic May sold
between 45 and 4Sic, closing at 46c
