their appearance on Front street yorterday.
Shipments from Oregon to the San Francisco
rr.arkct have started, bat the movement yet
is small. There Is a good demand at San
Francisco for fancy stock, but the market Is
cry weak on ordinary grades, of which that
state has a big crop. Several cars have
been fchlppcd nouth from here since the sea-
ton opened, and in the coming month the
xnevment should be i'er active.

The scarcity of cars has also tended
to check shipments from here. Local receipts
have begun to Improve, and some of the
docks are filling up. but the stock on hand
is not gilt edge.' Buyers arc paying on the
basis of 70 cents Portland for extra fancy po
tatoes, and CO eoRts for ordinary grades.

growers are not offering freely, and In order
to keep adequate stocks en hand dealers are
ccmpflled to buy In California. One car of
the latter sort earae In yesterday and was'
put on the market .at $1.25.
HOPS ARE AGAIN DULL.
Dealers Not in the Market California and
There was very little doing in the hop mar
ket yesterday.. None of the local dealers re
ported orders and none of them were in the
markeet to buy on their own account. Fewer
growers came In than on the precodlng day.
but numerous eclllng offers were tolephoned
In. The pressure to sell, however, did not
appear to be so acute as recently. m
From California came reports of more ac
tivity at a lower range of values, which, 1ww
ever, are still above those at which hops have
been sold here, while the New York market
has turned easy as a result of the extremely
low prices at which Pacifies have been offered
to Eastern brewers by Coast dealers.
A private letter from Yakima says that E.
J Smith has secured about 2000 bales of old
hops there for consignment to New York.
Advices from Red Bluff, Cal., say the rich
country around the town of Tehama Is soon
to become an Important hop-growing center.
It may rival Wheatland, where big hop fields
have been maintained for a number of years
past and which is now the most prominent
hap-growing section in the nerthorn part of
the State. Gerber and Cenant, who have
large ranch near Tehama and who ha-e been
making the breeding of fine Hereford a spe
clalty, have dUpoaed of their cattle business
and will turn their alfalfa flefds into hop
yards. They have 400 acres of land In alfat
fa and this will be plowed up thin winter and
500 acres planted to hops. Next winter the
other 200 acres will be planted to hop roots.
CITY II UTTER "WEAK.
One Local Creamery Announces n 30-Cent
The local butter market continues to drag
with a weak undertone. Stocks arc large and
show tslcns of accumulating. The top price
cf city croamory is still hold at 32 cents,
but the Sunset Creamery announces a cut to
day to 30 cents and other local manufacturers
may make the same open quotation. It is
known that some of them have sold more or
lew of their product at 30 , cents for a con
siderable length of time. The upward move
ment of the Eastern markets encourages the
local trade to hope that supplies of Eastern
butter may soon be shut off.
Eggs movs along steadily without any change
In quotations. Supplies of Oregon eggs are
light, but there are plenty of Eastern eggs
of very fair quality on sale.
Poultry reoelpts wore not heavy yesterday
and the coops sold readily at former quota
Fruit Trade Quiet,
Notwithstanding the heavy arrivals f ba
nanas early in the week, there was a scar
city of ripe stoek on the rtreet yesterday.

PROFESSIONAL- CHARACTER OP
'ADVANCE IN STOCKS.
Low Grade of Securities Put For
ward Awakens Suspicion. Sell
ing for London Account. -
NEW YORK. Oct. 24. Probably the chief
Importance to be attached to today's stock
market is the light It throws upon the pre
ceding markets. The day s reaetJon. with en
tire lack of any change In news made pretty
conclusive evidence of the wholly professional
oharacter pf- the upward movement. The de
mand for stocks in the loan department of the
e-toek exchange was net more than nominal
today. Indicating the large reduction In the
outstanding short interest. The conclusion
was accepted as reasonable, therefore that
yesterday's 1.000.000-share market was due to
the combined efforts of the retreat of a cen
stdcrable short interest driven to cover by
latit week s advance in prices and ta the tak
lng of profits by the party of professional
speculators which had conducted the opera
tlens for the advance. A small Increase in
the outside demand attracted by the spurt In
prices facilitated the movement to take
profits. The Joint effect was an extensive
closing up of outstanding speculative con
tract so that the market of today wca left
clear for new ventures. The fact that yes
terday's early advances had carried the aver
age level of prices to the highest of the year
nd. in fact, to the highest record prices as
whole, was a subject of comment ana
doubtless an occasion for pause.
The low eradc of some of the securities
which were being rushed forward Into promi
nence was also a subject for grave qucstlen
laz. It (s the experience -of speculative mar
kets that the stirring up of such securities as
elajM is resorted to only becauee tne pos-
ibllities for advance In stocks of more sub
stantial value have been exhausted.
Selling for London account was quue
