The livestock market holds ftcady and no
marked changes in prices are expected soon.
except on sheep, which, will shortly commence
to weaken. Reports from the interior dis
trict are pf increasing activity In this line,
and it it estimated that the Eastern Oregon
sheep counties alone will ship 230,000 head
this month. J. M. Yates, who is in Grant
County buying for Tim Kinney, of Rock
Springs, Wyo. will ship 24.000 head and his
other buyers will swell the number to 54,000.
The cheep will be delivered to Shanlko. Hcpp-
ner,' Arlington, Baker City and Huntington,
at which points they will be dipped under
the supervision of Government Inspectors. To
convey these 54.000 feeders to Eastern points
Tt 1U require 162 double-deck cars or seven or
eight trains. Mr. Tales Is looking for con-
V idcrable trouble at the different shipping
points on account of inadequate facilities for
dipping. He believe? some of the buyers
Will be up .against It when they arrive at the
railroad and are compelled to remain several
days in order to dip their bands. This could
be remedied he thinks by allowing the dip
ping to be done under the inspectorship of the
county stok Inspectors at convenient points
in the interior.
Trading in Lake County hae also been live
v. numerous sales of mutton pheep having
been made at $2.50. J. X. "Watson, buying for
McCo!Iough Bros., of Reno, bought about
6000 2 aiid 3-year-olds from S. B. Chandler;
500 from C. W. Dent- and 300 from J. E
Nerln Louis Gerber bought about 000 head
or mutton sheep from Arthur Bros., and
about 1500 from C. A. Rohart and others. I).
P Melloy sold 1000 head to E. A. Kitehing

PLENTV OF VEGETABLES.
Heavy Receipts Yesterday by Steamer and
In addition to the heavy receipts of vege
tables received by steamer, four carlots of
rail arrivals were put on Front street. The
market was in first-class condition, having
been cleaned up of the previous week's sup
ples. Among the receipts was a car of Bermuda
onions from Texas. They wore packed In
neat 50-pound folding crates. The onions
were of excellent quality and sold well at 5
cents. Some new red California onions re
ceived by steamer brought 2H4?3 cents. Two
cars of cabbages arrived and another one
of Winnlngstadls is due today.
Liberal quantities of new carrots, beets and
vrnips, both sacked and crated, ami new
rarsnJps In crates were received. New po
tato arrived more freely and were quoted
at 22a cents. Beans, peas and most other
Z.nes of truck were a shade easier. The
Aral new cream quash of the season was
received and offered at $1.25 a box.
STRAWBERRIES IN DEMAND.
Not Enough Choice Fruit Is Received Call
foraias in Bad Shape.
The weather was Ideal for the strawberry
trad and anything at all marketable met
with quick sale. Oregon berries, while more
plentiful than last week, were far too short
sr the demand. Hood Jtivcr fruit brought 20
cents and berries, from other sections sold
for lOJflS cents. About 1500 crates of Cali
fornia berries came up in more or less bad
order because of the rains in that state.
It is promised that shipments later in the
week will be of better quality. Prices yes
terday ranged from 50 cents to $1.25 per
crate according to condition.
California cherries were also plentiful ana
(old better, quotations running from 75 cents
to $1.25 per box. Three cars of oranges were
received during the day and a quantity of
lemons came up by steamer.
POTATO MARKET DRAGS.
Shipping Season Is N6u- Almost at an' End
Large potato dealers look for a weak and
dragging market from now on. Private ad
"v lees from San Francisco yesterday were of
an caster tone there, owing to the heavy
receipts of rlvera and Eastern stock. Shlp
nents of Btirbanka from this section are
about over. Buyers are quoting 90 cents to
$1 for fancy and' 8090 cents for common
stock. Th latter bring almost as much as
fancy potatoes , now, as but few fancy pota
toes are to be had. Garnet are selling read-,
liy at $2 .per hidrJdforJe4 purpose Thty
are quite i caret. -Colorado potatoes are
offering on the street at $l.tl.lQ per sack.
Egg Marked Holds Steady.
The egg market held about Heady. Re
ceipts were- large and promise to contlnua
bo during the week, but the demand was also
A few coops of poultry came In by express,
and eorae were offered from last week's arriv
als, but the inquiry was slow, even at the

Resumption of Professional Opera
atlons for AdvanceMerger and
Dividend Increase Rumors.
NEW TORK, May 15. There was some re
sumption of operations for the advance today
on the tock exchange, but they gave the
appearance of. being almost altogether la
professional hands. A striking feature of the
market was Its lapse into dullness verging ob
stagnation at the higher level of prices.
The renewal of operation on the long side
of the market was based on the conviction
that forced liquidation of wheat speculative ac
counts had been completed, and that It would
be possible to raise the level of prices with
out bringing out any unsupportable burden
of offerings. Very general confidence- Is still
felt In the soundness of the business and.
.financial situation and In the sufficient sup
plies In the money market for the use of the
immediate future. There are some sugges
tions of .disapproval on the part of Important
basking and money powers of any acUve spec
ulation at this time or any sudden and vio
lent movement of prices. But this did not
make itself evident today in active opposi
tion to the advance.
Some obstacles were met during the early
part of the day. but they were resisted and
ultimately overcome. The most notable of
these was the selling on London account, left
ever liquidation following the setUement mak
Ing Itself felt again In that market. But this
Influence proved less effective, than the com
prehensive revival of a full line of merger
and dividend increase rumors, which have
served the purpose of advancing prices sev
eral times already. Those bearing on North
ern Securities adjustments were especially
prominent and there was added to them the
new suggestion of a proposed retirement of
the Burlington -purchase bonds by an Issue
of new stock by the holding companies.
Among the industrials, old rumors of com
bination were revived by the news of a
plan for the absorption of the Rubber Goods
Company, by the United States Rubber Com
pany and by the wide scope disclosed In the
organization of the new American Smelter
It was assumed In some quarters that x
growing investment demand for bonds could
be detected, which was to be ascribed to the
growing supply of capital seeking Investment.
But the fact Is that the bond market Is at
present slow and Inquiry made among bond
dealers discloses that large portions of re
cent new Issues are still In the hands of un
derwriters and are marketed with difficulty and
in some cases at a discount. The Journal
of Commerce has traced new Itsues of bonds
since January to a par value of upward of
$000,000,000. " Of these $236,000,000 was for
refunding or merger purposes, but It Is point
ed out that the output by railroads alone of
new bonds for the 4i months was $37,000,000
more than for the full 12 months of 1901. The
present sluggishness of the bond market finds
explanation In these facts.
Railroad officials reported ,most roads a hav
ing a surplus of cars now on hand, partly
due to the small movement of grain and to
competition by the Lake lines, but also to
large additions to the supplies of rolling stock.
The Increase In value of April exports of
agricultural products was regarded with sat
isfaction. -Large payments to the sub-Treas
ury on account of the return of Government
deposits by the banks left lU: money mar-
ket unruffled and confidence 4n the continued
ase of money Is undisturbed. The advance In
a number of public franchise stocks was at the
expense of the short interest. The profession
al character of the market was Indicated by
the disposition to take profits on the day's
rise. This movement reaueed the gains con
siderably and In spite of the running up of
St. Paul over - points in mo iinai acaungs.
the closing was heavy.
Rands were irregular. Total sales, par val
ue. $2,870,000. United States bonds were all
unchanged on call.

SERIES OF TTjUCTUATIOXS IN
Close Is Weak at Near the Lowest
of the Day Sentiment Jn Corn
and Oats Pits Bullish.
CHICAGO. May 13. Weakness In the wheat
market developed soon after the opening. In
fluenced by higher prices at Liverpool, result
ing from a considerable decrease In tha
world's shipments, initial quotations here for
July were In some cases Vic higher, at S7,c '
Almost immediately, however, prices experi
enced a severe setback on profit-taking "by
small holders. July sold- off to S3T4c The
decline was in turn succeeded by almost as
sharp a reaction, which carried prices back
to about the highest point at the opening.
The upturn had Its Inception at Minneapolis,
where May wheat showed 5 cents gain and
July over 2c. The strength In the North
western market was attributed to flood con
ditions In the Red River Valley. Prospects
of Improved weather conditions started re
newed selling of July. As a result the price
again sagged off. A feature of trading was
increased .business In the September option.
The market closed weak at near the lowest
of the day, final quotations on July being at
Sentiment in the corn pit was decidedly
bullish as a result of the decrease of nearly
3.000.000 bushels In the vUIdble supply.
Shorts and cash houses were active bidders
during the greater part of the day. The
market closed at the highest point of the
session. July opened Vic lower to "liUc high
er, at 47Vi47Uc to 47Vic. sold between 476rt7Vic
and 4Sc. closing at the top. .
A heavy decrease In the visible supply was.
the principal Influence In the oats market.
Strength of corn had considerable effect.
Trading was quiet and the tone was firm
the entire day. July opened unchanged at
29-Sc. sold between 2Uc and- 29itS295c. ana
closed at 29H329;c.
Notwithstanding a decline of 10 to 15 cents
In the price of live hogs, a Arm tone pre
vailed In the provisions market. The caus
of the firmness was a fair demand from
packers for pork and lard. The advance in
corn also exerted immense Influence. At the
close July pork was up 74$10c lard was up
2Hc. and ribs were a shade higher.
