If the weather Is good today, there will be
the 10-cent Oregon strawberry market that
retailers have been looking for. It was prac
tically onT hand yesterday afternoon.
He e!pt In the morning -wore heavy from
Hood River. Southern Oregon and loeal points.
A' the opening an effort was made te sot

the big stocks could not be moved and slash

Tit?, but late in the afternoon 10 cents came
rearer being the ruling quotation. Even at
Ms low figure there was not a clean up.'
and a considerable quantity was carried over
to be worked off this morning.
The real cause of the weakness in. Ore
gon berries was the arrival of Hoskln's ear
from Florin. The Callfornias came in ahead
of time, and the first lots were put oh
the walk at 2 o'clock. Although th fruit
wsf three days In transit. It was in very
good condition, having come up under Ice.
The difference in price gave It the advantage
over Oregon fruit, and trading was conse
quently lively up to the close of business.
Only enough fruit was removed Horn the
car to fill orders, the rest being left in the
cooler, but several of the houses had to
fend down to the yards for a second supply.
The price held steady during the afternoon
at $1,256 1.35 per crate, city. This is the
last big lot of California berries that will be

The strong position of the rice market has
resulted in an advance of cents on
Southern. The rice mills of the South are
withdrawing their offerings on the prospects
of a decreased acreage and unfavorable
weat.her conditions.
Imported Japan rice Is also firmer. Last
year6 Japanese crop was heavier, but had to
meet with Increased consumption, owing to
he military opeiations. A Consular reprt
t late- dato says of the Japan eye-crop."' The
ri-e crop for 1S04 Is now announced to be
263.692,255 bushels, an increase, of 25.2S4.22S
bushels, er 16 per cent, as compared with
that of the previous year. The figures also
show an increase of 46,708,963 bushels.

'or the past seven years, from which the
most favorable year and the poorest year
are deducted, the average being taken from
the remaining five years. This unprecedent
ed jleld is due to the prevalence of good
weathfr in the country generally since the
planting out and to many agricultural Im
jrovements being made by farmers."
btste Fancy Creamery I Higher on Front
Light receipts of state brands of creamery
butter led to a slight advance in sonic quar
ters on Front street yesterday. 21U cents
being quoted as the top mark. The local eup-
rly has been so shortened by extensive stor
nge operations that ome pt the dealers can
not get enough butter for their regular custom
ers The movement In city butter was mod
erate, but a better demand "is expected arter
the first of the month.
Cheese was In good demand, but etocks were
i- plentiful that the market continued weak.
Ttift irUte most generally quoted was 13
cnts for full croam twins, but this was re

while others quoted up to 14& cents for
Reimportations at New York JJghter Than
There have been no developments in the hop
market tfils week. Evnryone is waiting for
later advices as to the condition of the Eng
lish crop, on which everything 'depends.
Should the first reports be orne out by
lster investigations, nothing tan prevent an
upward course of prices. Some of the local
dealers have received ,telegrams from New
Tcrk contradicting the first reports from
England, but others arc without advices.
New York Custom-House .statistics -up to
the close of business on May 19 -show that a
total of only 461 bates of American hops had
been reimport ed from London since the sea
son opened. It was reported yesterday that
Jim Linn, of Salem, had bought 50 bales
from Ralph Williams, of Dallas, at under
24' cents, but Mr. Linn codld hot be found

But Dealers Do Not Quote Any
van cr.
The bulge in the San Franclteo wheat mar
ket did not induce local traders to quote elub
at over S6 cents yesterday. A fair quantity
tf business was reported to have beon trans
acted, but generallj In small parcels. Blue
.tem was unchanged at 99092 cents. Several
cars of Valley wheat arc said to have been
bought in last few days at 13 ' cents.
Oats were quoted stronger at ''$2029.50 for
all grades. A prominent dcater is authority
f 5r the statement that there arc' not cneugh
oats left in the country to last until the new
crop comes on.
There is a good oeal movement in flour

Mr. Diromoclc visited California before he
Came to Oregon In quest of fancy stock, but
was unable to find anything suitable. The

fancy bucks.
Owing to the eold weather In this vicinity.
sheep shipments have been delayed consider
able, the shippers being afraid of loss in
cident to shipment of sheep, but unless an
other cold spell l experienced will begin

those of Haley & Saunders, of Salt Lake.
Poultry Move Better.
Three days have passed with unusually light
receipts of poultry- One firm was quite well
supplied yesterday, but others did not have
enough to go around. Should arrival be no
heavier during the remainder of the week,
quotations will likely be moved up. Tester
day's prices were unchanged, except for a
slight advance quoted In mixed chickens and
small broilers.
Eggs were again firm at IS cents for
candled stock, with not much prospect for a
change in the near future. '
Veal Again Weak.
Heavy, cbcipts of veal again weakened
the market yesterday and put off to a more
remote date the expected improvement. The
first hogs seen "In .several day came In In
the morning and were In good demand. There
was also a better inquiry foe lambs and
small mutton, receipts of which were light.
Marketing Heppner Wool.
It Is estimated by a Heppner authority
that .nearly 3,200,000 pound of wool will
be marketed at that point this year, as the
fleeces are averaging about 10 pounds each.

far short of IS cents a pound. The" larger
part of the wool in that district has already
been sold.

The rains will probably be very beneficial
to grain of alt kinds later en. as H will
make an abundant store of motsture In the
soil when the weather become, dry and
warm. But the cool weather, with lack of
sunshine, has greatly retarded the growth of
all crops, except., perhaps, wheat and oats.
Gardens arc particularly backward. The
heavy frosts injured fruit, t-uch as apples,
cherries, etc., nipped field and garden vege
tables and cut down,.jrheat and barley on
low valley lands. On the high lands there was
no Injur" to wheat. The Spring wheat will
recover, but the frosted Winter wheat was too
far "advanced to recover so as to make grain.
However, the proportion of Winter wheat In
the districts where the Injury occurred was
relatively small.
For the most part both Winter and Spring
wheat, as well an oats and barley, while not
growing fast at rresenr. are In very promis
ing condition, and will make rapid progr&s
with the first warm weather. Hops are doing
well. There were some high winds In the
Eastern counties, doing some damage to orch
ards. In the southern counties haying and
strawberry picking have begun.

Rumored Northwestern Railroad
Agreement Is 3Iost- EfTectlvc
Force Back of 3Iarkct.
NEW YORK. May 24. There was sub
stantial strength in today's stock market, as
was evidenced by the length of the list of
stocks which were lifted between 1 and 2
points during the day's trading, and In a
few exceptional Instances more than that.
The trading offered a number of remarkable
features. One- was the small volume of the
demand In which the very notable gains were
effected. The cay s transactions fell below
those of either yesterday or the day before.'
If the buing was for the account of uncov
ered shorts, it was decidedly free from any
sign of urgency or such trepidation as the
bear trader short on stocks usually mani
fests. There was rather free selling during,
the first hourj. owing to tha wide advances at
which prices opened. Prices have made so
many false starts towards recover-that senti
ment nas become extremely suspicious of these
sudden advances over" night which have
melted away during the day in more than one
Instance lately. The same suspicious atti
tude was maintained by the professional' ele
ment today. At different stages of the ad
vance the market sank. Into practical stag
nation, but the ground yielded on such occa
sions was insignificant.
There was no newa to account for the
movement, and in fact some of the day's de
velopments might be regarded as additions
to factors recently regarded as unfavorable.
The grain markets still had their crop dam
age reports. The Chicago strike situation
seemed aggravated and In danger of spread
ing. The Secretary of War outlined fresh
Administration views for the . regulation of
corporations. But the consideration of thse
matters had apparently lost force. The
Northwestern Railroad problem, on the other
hand, showed a perennial freshness. The
revival of rumors that an agreement had
been reached among the railroad powers in
that field to refrain from hostilities was the
real effective force hack of the day's mar
ket. The special prominence of Union Pa
cific, St. Paul, Northern Pacific. Northwest
ern and Great Northern preferred wero thus
accounted for.
The Extreme ease In the money market on
the eve of tomorrow's $60,000,000 requirement
for the final Installment of the Japanese loan
subscription was a fostering Influence on the
strength of stocks.
The reception of th'e Iron Age's weekly
trade review was in marked contrast to the
depression caused a week ago. although that
authority's view of the trade has not altered

Damage Reports.
CHICAGO. May 2i. Following higher prices
t Liverpool the wheat market here opentd
firm, initial quotations on July being up
Uc at OC-fiOO'ic In addition to the higher
cables, a continuation of unfavorable weather
in. the Northwest also affected the market.
Weather In the Southwest, however, was en
tirely favorable to the bears, clear s"kies and
rise In temperature Mng precisely the
conditions needed by the Fail-sown crop. A
lack of any definite damage reports Inspired
considerable confidence in shorts, who sold
quite freely with the result that tle market
was decidedly nervous during the first two
hours. After selling at 00?s9004c. July de
clined to S9Xc Sentiment, however, gradu
ally became more consistently bullish as fresh
reports of damage to the Spring wheat crop
were received. Sharp, advances at Minneapolis
and Duluth gave emphasis to the crop dam-
ge advices. While the news from the South
west was conflicting, tho preponderance ot
reports still claimed considerable damage in
that section. The sensational bulge In May
com contributed materially to late strength
In wheat, A few minutes before the close
July wheat touched the highest point of the
session, sales being at OOSeOOftc The mar
ket closed practically at the top. 'fTsC
higher for July at OOHttOOsic.
A sensational Jump ot 9c in the price of
May corn burnished fresh evidence of the
congested condition or the market for that
delivery. The scarcity of offerings was the
principal reason for the sharp upturn. A mod
erate demand from shorts forced the price of
May up from 5Sc. the opening .price, to 61c.
Toward noon the demand became extremely
active, resulting In a quick advance to 65c.
Near the close a revival of -the aggressive
demand from shorts caused a final upward
bound to Oic. The close was at 66"ac. In
sympathy with the strength in May. July
wa strong, closing at 49Vi43c, a gain
of S;ic-
Oats were bullish as a result of the strength
of other grains. July closed ic up. at 30sc
