POULTRY Receipts unevenly dis

The hop market In Washington ha opened
yt with a Midden slump. The growers of
that Mate have done aa they did last Winter,
undersold their brethren In Oregon and parted
with their goods. Sales were made In the
past tw days of 1700 bales at prices ranging
from 18 to 11 cents. Buyers are still in the
floM. and it Is believed that more transactions
will follow In the next few days at the same
prices or even lower If the Washington grow
ers should go Into a panic.
Of the sales made. 1300 bales were West
ern Washington, grown In the Ortlng, Oreen
River and White River sections. Some were
taken at -10 cents, eotne at 10 aad others
at 11. There Is a dispute as te the quality
of the hops, a wire from Taeoma saying they
are choice, while dealers here declare they
oaty grade from oemme-n to medium. No one
appears to inow definitely who the buyers
were, some" crediting the deal to Paul Horst
and ethers to Ullman. Klaber & Plncus
claim not to know, am! have "Telegraphed here
fr information on the subject. Another rale
involved 400 bales of Yakimas bought by Mc
NefX Bros, at 11 cents. A rumor came down
from Salem in the afternoon that Catlln &
Linn had td tent of their hops at 13 cents,
bt the details were not obtainable.
The Oregn growers as a rule are just as
firm as the Washington growers are weak.
The farmers of this state have the advantage
tht year la one respect, the quality of their
hops. Oregon is the only state that will pro
duce choice hops of export quality in any
large oantity. and the English buyers must
come here to flit the bulk of their orders. An
active demand is expooted just as soon as the
rtuftw now being forwarded reach their des
tination. What prices the exporters wJtl be
wilting to pay remains to be seen.
Picking will not be eompioted In all the
Oregon yard for 10 days yet. The pickers
will flnieta . their work at the big Witchhazel
yard this afternoon. A. J. Ray. the owner of
the yard. aye the crop wilt average 1450
pounds to the acre. He expected 1200 pounds.
According to figures Just received from the
Treasury Department, the Imports of hops into
the United States the past season, ended Au
gwt 81. were 16.888 bales, of which 0001
halm were received at Now York; total ex
ports from the United States wore 76.fiu2 bales,
which Induded OS, 1ST bales shipped from the
port of New York.
BUTTER IN A BAD WAY.
Prices Are Maintained, Though the Market"
Is Said to Be Very Weak.
According to most reports, the butter market
is in a bad shape. The city creameries are
generally quoting 82 cents -on their top
grades, though one croamoryman asks no more
than 30 contrt, and another threatens to take
the same action. Probably most of them are
doing some business at the out price, though
they do not acknowledge It. The bulk of
their business appears to be in second-grade
butter, which is a fair article at a good re
duction under the top price
On Front street the tone is decidedly weak.
A little butter is going at SO eents there,
more at 27 cento, and a considerable quan
tity at 25 cents. One dealer, who found
his butter piling up on him had to put a lot
of It in ootd storage. In the meantime,
a lot of Bastorn butter has been unloaded
on this market, and now a Seattle man 1b
figuring on putting Washington creamer but
ter here, as the Portland market is far
POULTRY PRICES UNSETTLED.
Owing to Receipts Being: Unevenly Distrib
uted Eggs Are Weaker.
Receipts of poultry yesterday were not evenly
divided and the market was, therefore, re
ported weak in nonie quarters and steady in
others. Prices had a wide range, running from
3 to 14 cents, with 16 cents asked for
The egg market has an easier tendency,
probably owing to the large quantity of
TEartern and cold-storage stock offered. Not
m ai r eggs are coming in from the country
mw, but it is hard, to -get over 27 cents for
the freshest. Eastern eggs are eelllnr at
25 cents, coM-sterage Oregon stock at 21
STRONG INQUIRY FOR PEACHES.
Bert Offerings Sell at High Price Grapes
Sent to Seattle.
There "was a fine demand for peaches yes
terday with an ample supply on hand to
fiU all orders. Some Southern Oregon fruit
of Inferior grade sold as lew as 50 cents,
whle the choicest offerings In the market
brought f 1.15.
Tokays and blaok grapescwere rather scarce,
hut there was an abundance of Del a wares
on hand and aa the holders could get no offers
on them, a big lot was sent over to Seattle.
Concords are not very plentiful. Other kinds
of fruit were In good supply and moved
AMERICAN APPLES IN DEMAND.
Germany and France Ask for Fine Fruit
From This Side.
According to cables received by W. X. .White
& Co., of New York, says the Journal of Com
merce. American apples arc In more demand
abroad, local crops of plums being finished
and English early varieties of apples finishing.
Quotations are: Kings. 19ff26s; Baldwins. 34
$28s; Greenings, UglSs; various, UQ21.
Germany wants best colored annles and
there are more inquiries this year than, for
foitu time. France also asks for certain
varieties and French buyers eay If they can
get what they want very good nrlcn mv
made. Shipments of pears "to Europe at pres
ent are very heavy. Some SO, COO to -10,000
boxes will be shipped this week and In the
opinion of W. N. White & Co. present prices
cannot be maintained.

YIELD WILL BE SLIGHTLY MORE

Disposition Among Growers Is to
Hold for Higher Prices Buy

ALBANT. Or.. Sept. 21. (Special.) Linn
County hops have practically alt been gath
ered. With bet few exceptions, picking is
over in the yards, only two or three having
more work to do, aad picking in there wilt be
completed this week. Work in the dryer and
baler will continue for some time, however.
Hops are considered In better shape If per
mitted to lie in the bin for orae time after
The crop for the county is now stated to
be. about as estimated before picking began.
While this does net mean a full crop by any
means. It means a few hundred more bales
than were put out by Llnn County last year.
The 2200 bales that Llnn sends out this year
will be made up of hop. of prime grade.
Never were the odoriferous hurra of bettw
Klze and rounder than this year. Most of. the
yards hare been requested to report "he num
ber of boxes produced this year, and on a uni
form basis of 12 pounds of dried hops t
the box It will be possible to give figures In
a week that will come within 50 pounds of
the actual output of the county.
There Is a disposition among Llnn County
growers to held their bops for better price.
Buyers here are offering 12 and 13 cents for
prime hops, and growers seem Inclined to think
the price will rise enough te Justify holding.
No sales have been reported rince the picking
season opened. A number of orders have been
placed with middlemen at the prices quoted
above but as yet effort to meet the orders

CULL MONEY MARKED UP
CHECKS STRENGTH AND ANIMA
TION OP STOCK ZMARKET.
Canadian Pacific and Reading the
Features of the Day's Trad
ing at New York.
NEW YORK. Sept. 21. Today's early clock
market had an appearance of considerable
strength and animation and special stocks
made striking advances much In the manner
of yesterday, market. Some constraint de
veloped in the later operations, and the rate
of activity fell away very materially. The
marking up of the call money rate was the
poieatlal Influence tn this result. Deals and
rumors of deals played a large pari In the
principal movements of the day which were
In stocks supposed te be In the band, of pools
or oscepUble readily to manipulation. Both
Canadian Pacific and Keaaing were promi
nent features during the day. Rumor continues
very active with the alleged project of a new
issue of Great Northern preferred to present
stockholders and St. Paul figured In a rumor
of aa Impending Issue of $25,000,000 of author
ized stock with subscription privileges to
Rates for call money were Arm and higher,
although time loans were called somewhat
easier, the demand for that kind of accom
modation having subsided somewhat. Yet sub
Treasury operations this week have yielded
to the banks over $1,000,000 compared with a
ku& for the corresponding period last week
of $3,665,000. Indicating an advantage In this
week's showing of $7,000,000 over last week.
The Interior demand has also -relaxed. This
seems to Indicate that the banks are relieved
from the necessity of calling loans In order
to keep within the reserve limit. It Is as
sumed, therefore, that the hardening tone of
money must have to do with the disposition of
the trust companies funds rather than with
those o, the banks.
The retention of the Bank of England rate
was a favorable factor In the day's market. A
renewed tall In foreign exchange resulted, but
the decline was not sufficient to report the
point ef profit for further engagements of gold
for import, for discounts roso In Berlin and
Paris. The Irregular tone of the late mar
ket continued up to the close.
Bonds were Arm. Total sales, par value
$3,335,000. United States 2s coupon declined

'Baltic Ports Rise at
CHICAGO. Sept. 21. Sentiment In the wheat
pit today ivaa bullUh the entire jesalen. At
the openlrru. December was up shC to ?jc
at S4SieS4!ic. The advance was largely due
to a sharp rise In prices at Liverpool, oa
tenalbly the result o reports to the effect
that Ruwla la face to face with the worst
famine, which the Czara country has ever ex
perienced. Indications of existing conditions
came In cablegrams from Moscow to a commission-house
here which claims that 40 per
cent of the wheat exported from Ruesla up
to this time has been relmported at the Baltic
ports. The market here was further strength
ened by higher prices at Minneapolis. For a
time shorts here were Quite' active buyers.
A leading bull also was reported as having
bought considerable wheat, the greater por
tion of which waa for May delivery. As a
result, the December option advanced In sym
pathy to 5Hc. Strength of cash wheat at all
grain centers tended to encourage the pur
chase of futures here. During the last hour,
the market lost part of the strength that had
developed, December selling oft to S4H64Hc
A report that the Spanish government had
re Imposed a duty on imports of wheat was
partly responsible for the reaction. The mar
ket, however, closed quite firm with Decem
ber He higher at 84iG&l?ic.
A Arm tone prevailed In the corn market.
December opened unchanged at Uc higher at
