Tne wheat market for the time being has
ome a San Franelsoo proposition. A good
demand bas sprung Up in the Southern stato
t at has caused a material stiffening in val
ues here. This is" a fortunate thing for hold
ers, re wUh -the -slump yin the East and- a
falling off in the demand elsewhere, nothing.
ould have. saved local prices.
The California "acttvUy is the result of the
Trussing domand for flour experienced by
rJllrts of that stale and the alarming abort
age in available stock. On the San Fran
euro grain, exchange Stay wheat was quoted
at an advance of 2 cents yesterday and De
cember and spot wheat were also higher. The
l.mlted quantity remaining in the North
Parific States is about all they have to draw
upon, and as a consequence of repealed in
qu.ries here, the market has moved upward.
V bile reMlors '" this sta4e are quoting club
vheat on a basis of S35 cents, large deal
er dodarc ' they aro paying S?3 65 cent?, and
bouses with direct California -connections quote
S6 cents as the Portland value. Bluest em is
quo' able nt the usual 5 cents margin.
No more business is expected te be done

NO JAPANESE FLOUR DEMAND.
Stocks Lately Bought "Will Last Them for
Th- Sour demand from Japan has prac
t.rail.v cosoed. Shipments are still under
vsy and a large quantity will go farward
next month, but no more buying orders are
coming In. This Is due In large part to the
r.eay stocks already purchased and ak
t" the prohibitory war risks.
Japanese importers bought in anticipation
r the tariff advance that becomes -effective
.1ul 1 and laid in stocks that will carry
t'iem through a good part of the Summer.
They are under no pressure to buy more and
probably could not get It landed in time to
escape the increased duty, as the regular lin
ers and chartered steamers sailing next
month arc already full. While shippers might
work business with $4 steamers. , they are
handicapped In that respect by tho lower
pilv-es now named by buyer. Added to this
If the fact that war risks are now quotable
at 2 per oenl. whleh means about 8 cents per
barrel, and ao lowering In the rat can be
expected until the Russian war fleet Is out
of the way. -
All dealers believe that with lfee cessation
or hostilities in the Orient there will be a
marked revival in the flour trade of this
Coast, but until that time oomos, unsettled
conditions arc bound tir prevail.
FRESH PRODUCE ABUNDANT.

Vegetables and fresh fruit of all kinds were
plentiful on Front street yesterday, rail, ship

of good quality sells wcM. Asparagus from
Walla "Walla, local points and San Francisco
is In full iupply; ' ' ' ,
No Oregon berries wore received 'yesterday.
The California berries that arrived were In
better condition than thoee coming Tuesday,
but as receipts wore heavier, there was no
rhangen prices. Bananas arc selling wcM at
firm quotations. There Is no,, surplus on hand,
but nc or two cans are due later In the
week. Oranges are plentiful, bat continue

BUTTER QUUJTS DOWN. ,k
iipeculatorb Reduce the Surplus, But Do Not
The butter market has quieted down and
no new developments are expected soon. A
local spooulator -has. . been . haying Jlboralty
on FroBt gtrett in the past few daye, jnuuli
to the satisfaction of that' district, but "his
has not. changed the condition of the market
irom one of nhsoiutc wcakacss, whleh will con
tinue as long as the cream supply keeps, up
its present gait. City creamery men are re
lieving themteires by steady storing and may
prevent a further drop In their product. Cali
fornia butter Is offered here, but not at ac
ceptable prices. Should a - figure as low
as 17 cents be named Northern buyers
might respond, but such a price at San Fran
cisco would vory likely Invite storing there
Effgs Are Pourlnff Jn.
Egg reeelpts yesterday were not evenly di
vided, but taking the utreet as a whole, the
arrivals were larger than any time this week.
The natural result was continued easiness in
the market. A price of IS cents was gen-.
erally 'quoted fen single cases, but 37i cents
was the ruling quotation far larger Jots. To
dean up a dealer might have been farced
to take less.
. Poultry was also in larger supply, but ev
erything choice found bus'era at top prlcos.
Mohair Season Nearly Over.
Trading in mohair is almost at am end. as
only a few scattered lots are loft unsold
here and there in the Valley. Quotations
are Arm and unchanged This has proved a
good year for the fanner, but a poor one
for the dealer.
Some men In the wool trade express the
same opinion of that market, but their eager
ness to contract for clips, at top prices show
that they have faith In the future.
Wahinjrton Crop Report.
The "Washington weekly crop bulletin says
Tho condition of the staple crops of the
state Is very satisfactory. Spring grain sow
ing Is practically completed, except in the
coldest and wettest localities. Early sown
wheat and oats are growing splendidly. Win- j
ler wneat ana nariey nave ma or very saiis-
i factor' progress and are looking fine. Corn
and beans are being planted In- Klickitat
County. The condition of alfalfa, clover and
other grasses Is excellent. -Early sown sugar
.beets have sprouted. The ground has more
moisture in it than usual at this time of the
year In the central counties, which Is very
favorable for the wheat crop.
General Weekly Crop .Report.
WASHINGTON. April 26. The weekly sum
mary of crop conditions issued by the Weather
Bureau says: Rain interrupted work m Colo
rado, but rain is needed in Montana. Very
favorable conditions prevailed on the North
Paeifie Coast, but la California cool, cloudy
weather retarded growth, and the hail storms
proved injurious in localities.
While the growth of Winter wheat has not
been rapid, owing to the absence of warmth,
the condition of the crop continued promising

Looking for Sheep.
Many Inquiries are being received by Lake
view "business men In regard to the prices at
which stock and mutton sheep arc being soM,
says the Lakevicw Herald.
Up to this time few sheepmen have set any
price oil their sheep. William Harvey Is
holding his sheep at $2 for yearlings and $2.50
for 2-year-oWs. Tho present price seeme to
be higher and the demand greater than it will
be in the Fall. owin to an abundance of
feed in the Sacramento Valley at this time
and the excellent condition of the ranges in
Sheepmen will do well te Investigate thor
oughly the present market, and then decide
whether or not to sell this Spring. Some of
the local woolbuyers believe that the price
of sheep wilt be higher this Spring than at
any other time during the year. This con
clusion is based en the fact that in the Fall
feed will be scarce, and consequently there
will be a drop In prices.

Closing: of Market Is "Weak on An
nouncement of Regular Dividend
on -Norfolk & ' AVcstcrn.
NEW YORK. April 26. Speculative senti
ment In the stock market seems to be
swayed at present almost entirely by the.
varying gossip regarding the relations between
railroad capitalists who control - the North
western railroad systems. Today's rumors
shifted to the side of prevailing harmony
and & disposition to co-operate for mutual ad
vantage. Ou of this subject there has been
built up during "the recent boom In stocks a
complicated system of supposed projects for
centralisation of control of the railroad sys
tems of practically the whole country. The
slump in Northern Securities stoeks shook
the confidence in thlsc stories and during the
break of this week and last opinion has
veered to the other extreme. Instead of har
mony, whispers of war and of plans of. mu
tual destruction have pervaded the street.
The reports ot- restored harmony today came
after the movements of the stocks and there
was suspicion that manipulate processes
played a large part in the price movement.
The downward plunge in the price of North
ern Securities was in a large part due to
the fear that with the release ot the stocks
of Its constituent companies they would be
freely liquidated on account Of" the high
level to which the nominal quotations had been
carried while the holdings were tied up In
the Northern Securities Company. This ap
prehension was kept alive by the violent de
clines in the quotations for these stocks. But
there was an awakening today to the fact
that the volume ot offerings on which these
declines had been made was almost purely
nomlnal. In spite of the rapid distribution be
ing effected of certificates of stock of these
companies. It was reasoned from this that
the concentrated holdings of Northern Pa
cific and Great Northern prqbjibly were
little changed and that they" were"IiGtr com-
lng on the market In large quantities. A
rumor was set afloat in addition that an
agreement had been reached as to the dis
position to be made of Northern Pacific It
was alleged In addition that the controlling
interests In Union Pacific had averted a danger
which menaced them of losing control of their
property and that the proposed issue of
$100,000,000 of preferred stock would be
abandoned, as Ii had been intended only to
preserve that control.
There was a considerable outstanding snort
Interest which was alarmed by these develop
ments. The effect was clearly manifest In the
movements In Northern Securities, Great
Northern preferred. Northern Pacific. St. raul.J
Union Pacific. Illinois Central and New York
Central, all of which have been bound up
more or less In speculation, based on this
Explicit declarations were made also that
the long rumored lease by a dividend guar
antee of Louisville & Nashville to the Atlantic
Coast Lint, had been definitely determined
upon. Amalgamated Copper led a strong
group of copper, lead and smelting stocks, a
special Influence being the increase in tne
dividend rate on Anaconda, a subsidiary com
pany of the Amalgamated. The United
States Steel stocks at first reflected disap
pointment cn the part of the speculators who
had counted on larger net earnings ror tne
quarter than were reported at the meeting
after tho market had closed yesterday. But
these stocks showed a good recovery when
the general strength developed.
The vagaries ot the price movement aroused
growing suspicion, especially the feverish
speculation In Louisville & Nashville, and the
sudden subsidenco at Intervals of the active
hiivlne' movement. The market had already
become shaky when the news was published'
of the declaration of only the regular divi
dend on Norfolk & Western. There has been
extensive speculation based on hopes ot an in
crease and the unloading of disappointed
holders carried that stock 3 points under last
night andjiroke the whole market. The clos
ing was weak and without effective recovery.
Bonds were firm. Total sales, par value.

CHICAGO MARKET CLOSES WEAK.
Wheat Affected by Easiness In Corn and
CHICAGO. April 26. The extreme weakness
in the wheat market developed during the
last hour of trading. Early in the session
the market was quite Arm. At the opening
May was f?c higher, at 9393c
July was unchanged to c lower at S5
S53jc. Commission-houses were fairly active
bidders for May. Under this demand the May
price was forced up to 93c. The July de
livery, affected by the strength of May, ad
vanced to 85c but soon eased oft again
to about S5c. For a. lime, the market held
up quite well, notwithstanding the general
bearbhnfss of pit traders who were Influenced
by additional rains in the Winter wheat
belt. An Improved demand for cash wheat at
all outside grain, centers was perhaps the
most Influential factor tending to offset wet
weather. Weakness la corn and oats exerted
a depressing effect on wheat and caused the
market during the last hour to yield to gen
eral profit-taking. Prices for May and July
declined rapidly. The lowest point for May
was reached Justbefore the close, when a
sale was made at 91c. July dropped to S3
83c. The market closed weak, with final
quotations on May at 91c, a net loss" of lc.
July also was down l4c. closing at 83c.
In com renewed liquidation of the 5Iay de
livery Tvas a feature. July closed at 46. a net
loss ot c.
The oats market was weak. July closed "ic
lower, at 2S?4c
Provisions were weak. Influenced by a 10c
decline In the price of hogs. Liquidation of
May pork was again in evidence. At the
close July pork was off 7S10c, lard was down
2?5c. and ribs were a shade lower.
