The bop market, strictly speaking, is in a
waiting attitude. 'It Is too soon "yof for any
marked effeot of the Oregon pool to be o"b-i-erved.
except so far as the growers are con
cerned, and they liavc -practically- been in a
pool for several months. The attitude .of. the.
brewers ip yti to be discovered. . unless the
injunction suit brought against the organisa
tion may be taken as an indication of their
feeling. The legal phase of the case" receives
but little consideration, as it is' thought the
proceedings have already been dropped.
What the trade at large looks for is a
withdrawal from participation in the market
by Eastern brewers that "will bo as pronounced
as the withdrawal of the Oregon growers. The
market will then resolvcLitaolt into a "freeze
out" proposition, and the longest-winded side
will win. To a disinterested person, the grow
ers seem to have the beet of the game, as
thej have agreed not to sell for 00 days,
whereas the brewers must buy before that
time, unless they have more hops put away
than any one gives them credit for.
If the Oregon hop" pool is an Illegal com
bination, why have not the people who op
pose such things turned their attention to
Washington or California? That is what the
growers ask. Up in Yakima there is a tight
ombtne among holders, and no one has sought
t... enjoin them. If, as Is suspected by some,
a Tacoma bear was back of the Portland
tas he might hav operated in his own ter
ritory at lfes exjKawe than even here, where
cut-rate traders are to be found. The Cali
fornia combine has not got into court yet
and it is safe to ray it never will, judging
from the failure of the Portland suit to ac
complish the object intended. The pool in
the Southern state was formed by Sonoma
growers, who agreed not to sell any of their
! 'redact for 60 days at less than SO ccnti a
pound. At the present time there are eioo
balos of hops unsold Is California a4 .140

"WHEAT HOLDS UP FIRMLY.
Strong Demand From -California Miller
Wheat is firmly held at S4?SG cents for club
and S9g91 ecnts for biucstero. The Cali
fornia demand Is still urgent arvd in all prob
ability will remain so for some time to come,
as there is a decided shortage of milling
wheat in ihat ktatc. There was a slight cas
ing off in the San Francteeo speculative mar
ket yesterday, but cash wheat, on Which
pries here are smw based, was practically un
t hanged. Offerings yestcrdar were somewhat
heavier, m more Valley millers were in the
market with surplus stocks.
There were no now developments in the
export flour situation. The Japanese are out
or the market as buyer.?, as prices offered
on the other. slq cannot bo aoeepted here-,
even with'k.w-prtce tramp steamers available.
A cargo of .56.050 Varrels was cie&rod yester
day and another somewhat smaller will soon
b dispatched, but no new business is looked
for at present.
Chickens One Cent Jxmer. j
The flight lncreae in receipts of chickens
pro.-ed too rmiefc for the market at the high
prices that have lately ruled. The result
was a drop of a cent yesterday In quotations
on old fowls. Broilers and fryers were in
good Remand, and aa but fow came in. full
prices .were -received for them. Young ducks
also said -well. but-oW birds of all kinds must
come dc-ira before there "is" a- jd move
ment. The egg market is weak and tppfceavy. Seme
dealers tiM-mako an effort to get -IS conts,
but most business is done at 171& cents.
' "Banana on -Quick Time.
Three cars bananas arrived yesterday after
noon in prime condition. They were brought
on a new schedule, being only eight days in
transit from New Orleans as against 12.
days, the 'customary time. The cost of the
quicker service is slight in comparison to the
benefits the trade receives. Local quotations
The orange market Is firm and active All
sizes of navels .are .scarce. Mediterranean
sweets and Jappas are coming Into promi
nence. Green produce Is clearing up saitsfactorily. A
car of mixed vegetables is due this morning.
Berry Orders Cut Down.
There will be a shortage of California straw
berries on Front street 'today, as all orders
have been cut in two. Tcsterdays receipts
were very heavy and as on the preceding
days the quality was most uneven. The cut
ting down In today's auply is due to a.
congested retail market and the poor con
dition of most of the berries lately received.
Fr'ccs were unchanged -yesterday at $1.50$2
per crate, as the movement was slow. Warmer
weather next week will make a most active
market In this line. Only two crates of Ore
gon berries were received yesterday. One
brought 20 cents a pound, and the other,
which was very fancy, sold for 30 cents.
Bank clearings of the Northwestern cities
yesterday were as follows:

New Cheese Coming In.
New cheese Is beginning to come in more
freely. Two fairly large shipment! were re
vived from Tillamook and considerable quan
tities have come from other sections. The
demand It good and the market is quoted
steady at 15 cents for full cream and the
usual margin ot a cent over this for Young

BOOKS FULL OF ORDERS.
Plants of Steel Trut Running Nearly to
NEW YORK. April 27. While the tonnage
of orders on the books of the Steel Corpora
tion, being 5,600.000 tone, exceeds the record
considerably, it must be taken Into account,
says the Iron Age. this week, that the ca
pacity Is greater through the acquisition of
the Union and Clalrton plants. The plants
are running at the utmost now. the American
Bridge Company, which lagged until the last
few weeks, having had a rush ot specifica
tions and orders. Nearly all the constituent
companies are operating to S3 per cent of
A number of reports arc afloat which rep
resent the pig Iron markets as weakening,
but specific Instances cannot be traced. Sales
aggregatinc. between 7000 and 10.000 tons of
basic pig by a Virginia furnace to a series
of steel foundries In the West were said to
have been made at concession. The transac
tion, however, is known to have been coupled
with a deal In scrap, which may make the
pig Iron figures misleading.
Comparatively little has been done in any
of the distributing markets except Chicago,
where there has been a fair volume of sales
of foundry Iron, malleable and-charcoal pig.
Thett has been some fair rail buying, a
Southwestern road taking JXXtt tons and call
ing for 15.000 more, while an Oklahoma
line has purchased 5000 tone. An Inquiry Is
In the market for 15.000 tons for Cuba. The
structural and bridge shops are getting a
rush of new work. The cast iron pipe In
dustry Is being pushed to capacity. Among
the larger orders recently taken is one of
14,000 tons ior Now Orleans.
The only advance announced during the
week is that of the National Tube Company,
making merchant pip $1 hlger and boiler
tubes $4 a ton higher. The weakening In
the prices of old material which began about
two weeks ago has terminated info a sharp
decline In all the markets.
Seventeen Millions in Dividends.
NEW YORK. April 27. Dividends amount
ing to over $17,300,000 will, according to sta
tistics compiled by the Journal of Commerce,
be paid to stockholders of industrial cor
porations in May, against $16,700,000 in May
a year ago. This gain Is attributed lf a num
ber of additions to the list, and also to In
creases. The amount to be disbursed would
be muoh larger but for the financial read
justment of the American Tobacco Company.
Dividends from that source ngured la last
year'e total for $1,015,000. but do not ap
pear in next month's list.

been kes than was feared a week ago; while
many buds were killed, on. most treas a suf

Spring grain is complete in most sections,
though work was seriously retarded by rain 1

Growth of grass has been rapid during the
week: some of the lower ranges are failing,
but this applies ly but limited areas; grass
on most of the lower ranges Is much better

ME OP LIQUIDATION
STOCK PRiCES CARRIED TO A.
. LOWER TjEVEIi.
Vague Fear in "Wall Street of Un
favorable Developments Yet
to Be Announced.
NEW YORK. April 27. The lack of con
fidence In the present level of prices was
the only obvious cause- for the wave ot liq
uidation which swept over the stock market
today and carried prices comprehensively to a
lower level. The liquidation was renewed
again and again, and tho entire lack of sop-'
port, and the failure to attract any effective
demand at the cheaper prices caused pro
gressive growth In the feeling of distrust.
The violence of the decline gave rise to a
crop ot sinister rumors of "something hang
ing over tho market."
The stocks centering about the Northern
Securities Company shared, fully In the day's
weakness, but they were not so singly con
spicuous a had been the case lately. Rumors
regarding these properties having passed from
the stage ot wholesale consolidation to that
ot complete antagonism followed by denials
of the supposed hostilities, and the stock
market Immediately settled to the normal con
dition again. The resulting rtate ot mind
on this topic Is fairly representative of that
on the many other subjects which have been
made the object of imaginative reports ot
late. Yesterday's retention of the former
dividend on Norfolk & "Western seemed to
shatter the hopes of speculators regarding a
large number of other stocks which have
been heavily bought on similar expectations.
The story ot the Louisville lease to Atlantic
Coast Line on a 7 per cent dividend basis,
which was the latest production ot this char
acter, obtained so little credit today that
those two stocks were among the principal
sufferers by reason of the -violent reaction
from yesterday's Jump. Rumors of mergers
among the metal industries, which have lifted
prices extensively, were equally open to sus
picion with consequent damage to the stocks
Another break In the wheat market served
to renew anxiety regarding losses in that
speculation which w.ould have to be mado
good 1n the stock market. The opening Influ
ence on the selling from foreign financial cen
ler was etrong. owing to the unscttlcment
there over the International political outlook.
But It Is doubtful whether any or all ot
theie matters had as much Influence upon
the selling as a vague feeling of suspicion
and a fear of some unfavorable development
yet to be announced. The discussion of the
Milwaukee bank episode and the Equitable
Life scandal, with the United States Ship
building Incident, wero believed to threaten
a shade q distrust over a wide field and a
resulting loss of contldcnce was dreaded tor
Its results on credits.
The character ot today's selling was a plain
Intimation that Important liquidation remained
to be completed: The volume ot the selling
gave rise to some startling estimates of the
proportions ot the speculative losses which
have been suffered by reason of ill-judged
campaigns The market was scml-demorallzed
at the elose, and stocks showed losses of from
one to eight points.
Bonds were weak. Total sales, par value,
$2,(95,000. United States bonds were all un
changed on call.

MANY BEARISH FACTORS
WHEAT. SliTJIPS AT CHiaGO,
BUT STIFFENS AT CLOSE.
Fino Growing: TVcatlicr and Break
at Liverpool Cause "Weakness.
Tlccovors on Bull Buying;.
CHICAGO. " April 27. At the opening the
wheat market was decidedly weak. May was
oft l03c. at $S3P0c. while July was
down at 82S3c Under enormous
sales from scattered longs, the price of May
was forced down to S6ic before the end of
the' first hour. Millions of bushels of wheat
are said to have changed hands during the
break. July slumped off In sympathy t S2
S2c. A number of Influences entered Into
the situation and tended to create the pre
vailing bearish sentiment. One of the leading
elements was a iharp break in wheat prices
at Liverpool. Another prominent factor was
weakness at Minneapolis. Perhaps the most
vital cause, however, was the excellent weather
prevailing throughout the United States. Addi
tional rain had fallen over the Wlntr wheat
belt. With prediction of higher temperatures,
prospects were favorable for the Fall-sown
crop. Toward midday, buying of wheat by a
leading bull givc some- support to - the mar
ket, but th? effect of the buying was' partial
ly offcet by rumors that the same operator was
selling under cover. Later, a firmer tone de
veloped on quite general covering by shorts.
The close was moderately firm with final
quotations on May at SSc July eloeed at $3c
Lower cables and the break in Wheat
caused heavy selling of corn early In the
session, resulting In considerable weakness,
but with a good demand from shorts. th-mar-ket
become quite strong. July closed !4Sc
higher, at 46g-iSc
Oats closed practically at the highest point
ot the day. July opened at 2S2lc, sold
up to 23"iC. and closed at the top.
The feature of trading In provisions was
renewed liquidation of May holdings, and the
market was weak. The July pork option
closed at a decline of 15j?17c. at $12.25: lard
was off 25c. at $7.25. and ribs were un
changed at $7.12.
