Thomas Kay, president of the Kay "Woolen 1
Mi1! at Salem, one of the largest institu
tion of the kind on the Coast, believes that
lower price for wool will result from the
re fight In the Orient, preparing, as It does, 1
the termination of the war.
"The leading factor in the advance lo
prices." said Mr. Kay yesterday, "was un
doubtedly the Krone demand for woolen for
army" f-ro?c! in the Far East, both by the
Riuwianz and the Japanese. This heavy de
mand m reflected in the high price reai
i2td at the London eale. which set thf
mark for the American trade. With the
clese of the war the Inquiry wlll-ccase and
there will be. a reaction In price. The mar
ket already has a weaker undertone and I
am certain the next London -tales will fhow
Trading has been quieter this week, both In
the Valley and East bf the Cascades, which
can be accounted for largely by the light
offering. A crowd of Eastern buyers re
maim In Eastern Oregon, ewurlng what they
can at current price, which are quoted from
17623 cents. The most Important dealings
-will fee at Shaniko. where a sealed bid sal
will be held next Tuesday. Valley wools are
quotable at Z7hi2& cents.
The Eastern wool situation is described by
the Boston Commercial Bulletin of May 27
Speculation among dealers' has practically
ceased, and the eltuatlon in the market has
been reversed. Inasmuch as last week the
market was enlivened by the " swapping
among the dealers, while this week the man
ufacturer have been around buying supplies
freely with no arguments over price, which
have again advanced. AH kinds of medium
domestic woolf. as well ae foreign, have
been In goctd demand. The dealer are lap
Idly selling their consignments of the new
Territory wool, and In many Instances tales
are being made far ahead of th arrivals.
Manufacturer have "been inquiring for wools
which the dealer are -unable to supply.
The" 'Western plates are now well roiA ex
cept Montana, where' some few" clips are still
left which are brlmrlng 26c. and In Oregon,
where t-ome wooU have been kepi 'for the
sales days, At 'Miles- City. Mont., a ale of
1O0.C0O pounds to a Chicago firm at 2Cc ha
been reported. On May 22. Pendleton. Or.,
had a sale day and. word has been received
of a ale of 400.600 pound, not of a high
grade, at 10V4322c. which, from Information
given by one who knows the vrool, will cost
71 to 72c landed clean. It Is said that the
better grades will bring 22S23c and will
mean 7273c scoured and landed here. Deal
ers consider it doubtful If enough 'wool is
left uncontracted at cither Shaniko or .Heip
ner to warrant sales days. In North Dakota
wools are being taken at 22927c. Texas
wools are well sold In the state, except at
San Angelo and Kerrvilie. where about 2,
.000.000 pound are being' held for sales days,
which will be around the first of June.
ools are now arriving from Southern and
Middle California. Idaho. Nevada. Wyoming
and I'tah in fair amounts, but the bulk of
consignments will not be landed here until
'the middle of June and part of July.
In the bright wool section nn excited feel
ing, similar to that In the Western States a
short time ago. Is now prevailing, and the
farmers have been asking -what the Boston
dealers consider extravagantly high prlecc.
The Ohio grower have .been demanding 35c
flat, and a telegram Thursday morning stated
that they are now wanting 37c fiat for
This would mean about K5c scoured, and
would be higher than Geolong Australians.
At these price the buyers arc not as active
aa the farmers thought they would be. Michi
gan fleeces arc well bought up at 32363c
while In Indiana the grower are talking of
holding for. 332T34C Accumulation have been
taken in Missouri at 31c. while Information
ha been received that 100.000 pounds of Us
have been offered by a Missouri holder at lc
less than he refused last week. The with
drawal of two prominent Boston firm from
the field has evidently had its effect In show
ing the fanner that the prices which they
had been asking were beyond legitimate
values for their wools, and likely . thlc awak
ening ha caused the slightly easier feeling
on Us and ?s which has been reported.
WHEAT FOR CALIFORNIA,
Heavy Shipment From Portland in Past
Month Barley Xlrrner.
The wheat movement to California in the
month Just closed, was of large proportion,
amounting to 164.SU bushels, of which 76.743
bushels went to San Franc leco. tha remainder
to Southern pprt. At tho present time the
-demand for tonnage cannot be filled. Every
steamer sailing eouth la taking all the wheat
he can find room for. Aside from the
trong California demand there, is not much
doing in the market, aside from an occa
sional purchase by millers. Values are quoted
firm at -65 cepts for club. DOfffll cents for
bluer-tern and S5GS7 cents for Valley.
The local movement In flour is good, but
without particular feature. California la stilt
buying liberally. 18.85 barrel having bee
shipped to that state In the month Just end
ed. Private advice yesterday reported an
advance of 55 cents per barrel la Dakota
The barley market has taken on a stronger
line and feed was quoted yesterday at $23 and
rolled $23.50. Stocks In the tate are said
to be about exhausted. Oats are very firm
at $29 per -ton.
FIRMER EGO MARKET.
Good Advice. Scat Out to Country
There was a firmer egg market on Front
.street yesterday. Receipts vcr very heavy.
1ut the demand seemed to be equal to the
occasion. Quotations were made In lngle
case lots of ISU cent, but larger lots brocrht
IS cents, at which price the 'bulk of the
trading was done.
A leading dealer nend out the following
Tcrttnent advice to shipper; "From aow on
you will have to see to It that you get good
egg, for -lth the warm weather that we
have already hat and that which v may
expect to have from now forward, poor rgga

STRAWBERRY TRADE DEMORALIZED.
Tiro Holidays Upset Local Market
The two holidays occurring tWs week have
completely demoralised the strawberry "
kct. Retailers did not buy heavily oa Front
street yesterday and the result waa aa Im
mense accumulation of stock tifat put deal
tr to their wits end to -move. Shipping
orders and shipping consignment did not
offer much relief and the Jobbers were forced
to fail back on the hawker. The natural
rff.uk was a bad slump in prices. Quotations
ranged from 75 cents to $1.50 for berries of
aH kinds. Hood River. "White Salmon. Val
leys and local fruit. The 75 cent price was
on off grade, roost of the business being
around the dollar mark. largo quantities of
country berrle were sold at the Plaza in the
morning to retailers at 5 and 6 cents.
Other kinds of fruit were In large supply
and moved only fairly well. Cots were
quoted- lower at $1. Some good Lacunas
eherrles were received and offered at 16 cent
a pound. Two cars of oranges made up the
heavy fruit receipts.
ASSORTMENT OF VEGETABLES.
Front Street U'ell Supplied With Local and
The bulk of the steamer vegetable were
disposed of yesterday. The receipt were well
assorted and consisted of new notatoe. car
rot., beet, turnips, beans, corn and other
mHer vegetables. The corn was In fair
condition and was quote at GO cent per
dozen. Bean were Meady at b$f cents for
wax. Oregon pea were plentiful and weak
at 506 cents. Asparagus wa more abundant
and easier and cucumbers were also plenti
Other receipts Included a ear of Colorado
potatoes and a mixed ear of Early Rote po
tatoes and cabbage. The potatoes offered at
cent. The ear of Florida t ma tee due
in the forenoon arrived, late and wlH be on
sale this morning at $2.7SfW.2S per crate.
Reduced Acreage In Text,
From a very high authority the American
Grocer learn that there will be reduced
acreage in peas, estimated- at 85 per cent of
lat year's area. The Jetal pack In 1304 was
3.750.000 to 3.800.000 cae. which sees fully
equal to meeting present requirements. The
packer have signed a throe-year contract
with the viner interest. wMch can be counted
upon to use their Influence to avoid an over
supply. The viaer tax Is fixed at 6 cent per
case of two doaen tins each for the next
three years. It is probable that there, will
net be much of a carry over from this into
next reason. Fine pea are practically used
up, and while the production of standard
and lower grades was rather heavier than
needed, the Flock ha been pretty well dis
tributed since the first of January.
American Hop Rcsblpments.
For the week ending May 27 there were no
hop export;-, from tho Port of New Tork. but
import were heavy, contesting of 34 balm of
foreign hops. 771 bale of American hops re
shipped from Liverpool and 05 bales of Amer
ican reohlpped from London, making a total
for the week of SOT bales of American hops.
Previous resMpmontn of Americans this -ton
were 461 bales, making the total reshlp
xnont to date, 1800 bales.
Meat Market "Weakened.
There wre heavy arrivals of veal again
yesterday, which further 4rpre.tsod the mar
ket. AU the receipts were not disposed of.
Pork Is also eating up under Mberal ship
ment. The demand for beef was slow, as
butchers generally were stocked up. Mutton
and lambs were quoted steady.
Poultry In Strong Demand.
Poultry receipt, which were moderately
good yesterday, met -with a very strong de
mand and cleaned up In sfeert order. Chlakens
of good size brought 13814 eents and eprings
moved off around 20 cents. A considerable
quantity of dressed poultry wa orforing.
Cheeoe Very Weak.
The cheeee market Is very weak. All deal
er are well supplied and a break in prices
seoms Imminent. A wMc range of quotation
was riven yesterday, running from 12H to
IS cent. The actual market value, a near
as It eeuM be figured out. was in the neigh
borhood of 13$tl3fe eelf.
Holiday on Front Street.
VThe holiday wIH be properly observed by
the wholesale trade today. The grocery and
merchandise houses win remain closed all
day. The produeo and commission firm will

all existing pools and agreement to maintain
price In the trade were in course of dlssotu-
tloc. following the example of the steel rait
pool. Fear were entertained that this would
serve to add to the difficulties of keeping up
prices and would increase the pressure to dis
pose of stocks.

WEAK WHEAT MARKET.
Cora Advance Nine Cent a Basnet nt
r-WTmnrv Mv 31. The wheat market wa
weak the entire day. At the start. July wa
off HSc to lfjlKc. at 87H?STe. The prin
cipal Influence contributing to the initial oe-
clta wa the almost perfect weather condi
tion pre railing over the entire wheat belt.
Another factor of considerable Importance wa
a decline In the price of wheat at Liverpool.
Pit traders were liberal seller the greater
part of tha time. Commission bouses were
th chief buyer. Toward tho end of the first
hour, the market showed temporary firmness
s a result of a sharp advance In the price
of May wheat at Minneapolis. In Chicago
the price of July advanced to SSseSSHc.
Sentiment soon became decidedly bearish again.
the Weather Bureau crop report causing re
newed weakness. The report, while admitting
damage, did not suggest any radical decline
In the condition of wheat during tne montn
of May. Late in the day heavy proflt-takln--In
May, following a break at Minneapolis,
caused addlttoeal weakness here. The mar
ket closed at the lowest point of the day, with
July at 6Tc.
May corn c!ecd today at 60c a bushel, a gain
of cxaetly 9c compared with Monday' final
quotation. The aharp advance was an Inci
dent of the final chapter -of -what is generally
believed to have been a arcccesaful deal by
several prominent traders, who are eald to
have had a hand In squeezing" May shorts.
At the opening. May wa up lc at 32c. Little
corn wa offered for sale until tho price
touched 554 c Profit-taking then caused n re
action to 52c Within the last, few minutes,
short bid up the price to 60c. The close
wan at the top. July closed at 49HtM&ir-
Largely In sympathy with the weakness of
wheat, the eat market wa easier. The vol
ume of tradlnc was very small. July cloned
Previsions were quiet and steady. Business
in the pit wa almost at a standstill. At the
close. July pork wa up 2Vir. lard wa un
changed and rta were up a shade.

other banks and trust companies advanced the

dropped to 3 per cent before the final quota
