Favorable Improvement In the

to steadiness of market.

EGGS Wide range of prices again
POULTRY Active week is fore
casted. TURPENTINE Three-cent decline
More buying pref.su re. coupled with a grow
ing unwillingness on the part of growers to
sell, has had the effect of giving a much
steadier tone to the nop market "in the part
few days. The fact that, in spite of all the
hammering, prices nave, not receded argues
much for the stability of the market. It Is
the general belief of growers and many deal-
crs confess to the same opinion, that the
bottom of the 1604 market has been reached,
and that whatever changes in prices will
occur later will ie in an upward direction.
' Now that orders hae begun to come in
at market values. It is thought that a busi
ness sufficiently heavy may be worked up to
clean up all the old stocks remaining, which,
when compared with brewing needs, are in
significant in quantity. The latest transac
tion reported wus the sale by Rlggs. of Dal
las, to Jcssup of 200 bales at 18 cents. Other
recent purchases reported were those of Mc
Klnley Mitchell. 51 bales, at 17 cents; Schuck
lng, 62 bales, at 16 cents; Gllbertson. 02
bales, at ICli cents; Lillenthal. 50 bales, at
18J4 cents, and Leavey & Metzler. 200 bales,
at 17 cents. Lachmund is- also said to have
bought a large lot recently at 18 cents.
T. A. Rlggs, of Dallas, who was in the
city yesterday, says that crop conditions, as
a whole, are not good In his district. While
some yards arc free from vermin, others are
badly infested. lie declares that there wilt
be a lot of mold In Oregon hops this year.
Hopgrowcrs are confronted with a new dif
ficulty in the shortage of spraying materials.
The supply of quassia chips In the state is
about exhausted, as dealers had no idea of
the demand that would be made upon them
and carried no more than the usual supply.
In many sections of the state quarcla cannot
be bought for love or money, and the unfor
tunate growers who have lice in their j-ards
are compelled to use substitutes, the value
of which as an exterminator Is unknown.
A meeting of the stockholders forming the
Oregon Hopgrow-ers Corperation will be held
at Salem on the 20th for the purpose" of In-
crrporatlpg the company. Maffy growers hav
already signed up their cr6ps. and it is ex
pected .thai .many more will do so as soon
as the company has been put on a legal foot
ing. Much amusement was caused in the trade
by a statement printed in a local paper to
the effect that Krebs had contracted for his
crops for five years to the Olympia brewery.
When the big output of the Krebs yards and
the comparatively limited capacity of the
brewery are considered, the absurdity of the
statement is apparent.
EUROPEAN APPLE CROPS SHORT.
Situation Is Promising for American Ship
A report on the apple crops of Europe has
been made by Michael Simons, a Glasgow
fruit merchant. Mr. Simons had Just com'
pleted a tour of the English fruitgrowing dts
trlcts and he wrote that he found more ap
ples In the country- than might have been ex
pected. Great Britain will have over one
third of an apple crop, he eald. Some dis
tricts will allow over half a crop, others
considerably less, and again, parts of the
country are perfectly bare.
Mr. Simons wrote also that Holland will
probably have a heavy crop. Germany a fairly
good crop, Belgium half a crop. "The situ
ation. therefore," he said, "is promising for
American shipments, provided the heads of
operators are not turned by the usual Inflam
matory trash which 16 continually being i.
sued In order to obtain fruit by houses whose
coneclences arc samewhot elastic."
MELONS CLEANING UP.
Hawkers Take a Largo Part of tbe
The melon situation was in better shape
5-esterday, A good lot of the surplus stock
was disposed of to hawkers and lower prices
quoted to the trade on Front street stimulated
the movement there. Jobbers quoted li to
IVi cents, and succeeded in cleaning up much
of the stock on hand.
A few local shipments of cantaloupes were
received and brought $3.75 a crate. A straight
car of cantaloupes is due today. There was
an adequate supply of deciduous fruits on
hand which met with a good demand. Prices
generally were unchanged. Among the day's
receipts were a car of oranges and a car of
There was quite a slump In Oregon toma
toes, as receipts were excessive. The first
carlcad shipment of Walla Walla yellow onions
was received In the afternoon.
BUTTER CONTINUES QUIET.
Seattle in the Market for the Surplus San
The butter market yesterday was rather
quiet, wjth no changes in price lists. Front
rtreet had a good supply of fancy creamery
and tbe city creameries had no complaint to
make on the score of shortage. Seattle Is in
the market at 20 cents, which will enable
commission men to dispose of any surplus
they may nave. The advance of the San
Francisco market to 22 cents should eventu
ally operate to improve the situation here.
Eggs were active yesterday and. as before.
prices were quoted at a wide range. Most of
the' day business was done between 21 and
22 cents. Some houses quoted 22V cents.
No poultry came in during the day. Another
active week Is looked for In this line.
Decline In TurpratlBe.
A decline of 3 cents a gallon was Announced
in -turpentine yesterday, the new price being
6 cents a gallon in cases. This is the first
Chang that has taken place in the market

So far as the restraint on tbe market was
due to any apprehension of a closer money
market, it was not Justified by any Immedi
ate development, although the sub-Treasury
operations reflected the payments on account
of Government deposits cancelled for Satur
day last. The total of tbe Installment called
amounted to about $11.C0.000 for all the Na
tional banks of the country. As a matter
of fact, tbe Government has expended since
July 1 and for the fiscal year In excess of
lis receipts $12,338,158. thus more than off

Some of the proceeds of the new Japanese
loan subscription also are likely to be re
stored to the market shortly. Applications
were to be accompanied with 5 per cent and
the oversubscriptions may be employed to the
extent of another 5 per cent to discount the
second Installment of the subscriptions due
on August 3. This would absorb $5,000,000
on tbe $50,000,000 of bonds.. The excess would
be returnable to .he subscribers on the allott-
ment, which wai made la London today and
will be made in New York on Wednesday.
Hut It is felt that when the remaining in
stallment Is paid in October It Is likely to
be remitted abroad shortly. Any prospect of
Russian indemnity loan being offered would
probably disincline the Japanese government
to leave large rums on deposit in the banks
of tbe Western world for the benefit indi
rectly of a Russian loan flotation. The de
mand for- time loans was reported good, but
the supply was ample.
Railroad officials spoke of the Increasing
demand for all lines of commodities, owing
to growing confidence in the grain crops, and
today's weather reports were favorable. The
4aye occasional strong spots were not well
held, and as the heat wave became aggra
rated, the market drifted into the - doldrums
and closed at small changes from last week's

fore October 1.
PORTLAND. July 17. To the Editor.) As
some two weeks hare elapsed since my last
letter written ca the conditions of the grow
ing hop crop. I will agiln offer you my opin
ion and late letters and wire advice. My ad-
TlcM of this date from New York State, from
three reliable dealers, estimate the 1905 crop
of New York from 3S.C0O to 43,000 hales.
My California advlcea from two hop firms
there say conditions remain about the same
as three weeks ago, with tbe exception that
lice are increasing rapidly and that 45.000
bales looks like a liberal estimate for Cali
fornia for 1905. .
Conditions la Oregon and Washington remain
about the same, with an abundance of vermin
Cable advices from Londcn of July 15 esti
mate the English crop at 350.000 to 375.000
cut, which Is only about one-half of a full
.Vll tht talk of 275.600 bales for America.
this year, which Is being spread by the shorts
and bears Is ridiculous eocsense. as It "wlH
be absolutely Impossible for America to pro
duce as many hops as last year by 33.000
bales' or more.
As one of the shorts today sayst, he Is a
bear and he Is going to use all the Informa
tion be can get and some he cannot get to
break the market. This statement simply
gives you an idea ot the desperate extremes
that are now being used by soms of the
short-sellers who have sold at very low prices
and who are now trying to force values down
so they can cover.
Dut it occurs to me that the Pacific Coast
growers are thoroughly posted ca the exist
ing situation, and will not fool away their
1905 crop at the figures that are now being
offered, as in my opinion there is net the re
motest possibility but that the growing crop
of hops will readily sell at 30c or better be
fore October 1, and probably by September 15.

Chicago Market Getting to
New Crop Basis.
WEATHER BIGGEST FACTOR
Ideal Conditions and Heavy Move

a Setback Slump "in the
' CHICAGO. July 17. The wheat market was
weak from start to finish. At the opening
the September delivery was oft XtJlc. at S3HS
$3Sc The factor that exerted the greatest
Influence was the continuance of ideal weather
for crops. Northwest and Southwex. Clear
skies, with temperatures good, prevailed
everywhere in the wheat-growing districts. As
a result. Southwestern grain markets were
today deluged b a flood of new wheat, ar
rivals at Kansas City and St. Louis being
337.056 bushels, compared with 142.279 bush
els the corresponding day a year ago. The
free marketing of the new crop was an addi
tional reason far the selling pressure that
was In evidence here during the entire ses
sion. A liberal decrease In the world's ship
ments seemed to be wholly Ignored. Likewise
a decrease ot 2.&S3.000 bushels on passage
had apparently no effect. Interest of traders
manifestly centered la conditions that sur
rounded the harvesting of the Kall-eown crop.
and In the maturing of the Spring crop.
With these conditions favorable, the only sup
port practically was from short. Fresh de
cline la the price of cash wheat at all large
centers helped Co depress option prices here.
For September the lowest price of the day
was S2Hc The close was weak with Sep
tember at STiUc
Considerable activity was- manifested in the
corn market. As a result of the congested
condition of the July delivery, sharp advances
occurred in the price of that option earlr in
the session, resulting ia a strong market
for the more distant months. A few of the
bull leaders were active buyers during the
first hour. Later the market stumped eft as
suddenly as It had previously Tallied, heavy
profit-taking being responsible for the re
action. Weather conditions were favorable for
the new crop, and receipt were heavy. The
market closed weak, with prices well toward
the bottom. September opened unchanged to

Weakness prevailed in tbe oats market the
entire day Weather was favorable for the
harvestlnr. of the new crops and reports in'
dlcated that the movement ot new oats would
begin within a few days. The break In the
prices of wheat was another reason for the
selling pressure in the oats pit, September
opened a shade lo KSftc lower, at 3O30;c.
sold off to 2&829HC and cloded at 29K?.

Butter Market Is Firm on lessened

SAN. FRANCISCO. July 17.-(SpecUL) The
work of putting the old dairy exchange into
operation on new line? Is making steady
progress, but may take two weeks before actu
al business will commence. The market for
fancy butter la in firm position. The recent
hot weather killed off much of the feed In
nearby section and lessened the output from
creameries. The supply of fine butter Is now
chiefly from northern coast counties, and un
less it exceeds tbe present volume, prices are
likely to be well maintained. Stock of cheese
are ample and prices easy. Fancy eggs, nice
fine butter, are scarce and firm, but any ad
vance above ruling rate would draw large
shipments from the East. Receipts were 71.- I
700 pounds of butter. 34.200 pound cheese, 34.-
110 doxen eggs.
Local grain speculation was very active. De
cember wheat plungetf down to 31.41 and
recovered to $1.434. December barley rose
on the short from 94 cents to 06ric Cah
prices for leading cereals were generally
firmer. Oats were scarce, condiuons ana
price in the flrult market had little change.
All Summer varieties, except narueii pears
and figs, were in liberal supply and easy.
Early grapes are now arriving freely, but are
