DAYTON". Wash.. Oct. 26. Within the last
few days hundreds of thousands of buohels
of barley have been sold In Columbia County.
Not more than one-eighth of tho crop Is

five depots are the principal storage points
In the county. Of the 400.000 sacks stored.
50.000 sacks remain unsold.
A month and a half ago the outlook was
discouraging. Barley then sold at 75 cents
cental, and the farmera formed a pool to
mop the downward tendency. The pool was
a loose organization, and pessimists said that
It would accomplish nothing. Although weak

STIIjD FEELS THE EFFECT OF
WEDNESDAY'S PRICE BREAK.
London Selling on Account or Rus
sian Disturbance Conservatism
Toward 31etal Industrials.
XEW YORK, Oct. 20. The stock market
today showed the chilling effect on rentlment
of the sharp break in prices which developed
late yesterday. There were occasional isolated
points of strength, but they were not effective
at any time as an offset to the generally
he'avy tone. Weakness In the general list
was not acute, but there were some con
picuous declines as well as advances. The
coalers made -a further demonstration of
strength, but the movement showed signs of
over extension and lost Its force In the ab
sence of any development to explain It. The
growing disposition to exercise more discrim
ination in the operations to advance industrial
stocks was encouraged by the Incident of the
passing of the dividend on American Hide &
Leather, preferred, as well as by the poor
showing of earnings reported yesterday by
the Corn Products Company.
A spirit of great conservatism was mani
fested toward the Iron and steel railroad
equipment Industrials. An Incitement to this
spirit was the admonitory tone of the Cleve
land Iron Trade Review of a "real peril In the
present tendency to advance price-V The
president of one of the principal car-construction
companies alto came forward with
a flat assertion for publication that the de
mand for car equipment was being "exagger
ated and was calculated to do damage by stim
ulating a rise in the price of materials."
London was a seller to a notable extent In
this market, principally on account of the
uneasiness excited by the upheaval In Russia.
The same influence was a factor in the whoat
market, owing to the obstruction promised
to the movement of the Russian cereal crops.
The progress of the settlement on the stock
exchange In London held up the rate for
call money there. The easy tone of money
was maintained in this market, but sterling
exchange made a further advance and expecta
tion grew ot an early announcement of gold
exports. With the subsidence of the mid
monthly tide of pension payments, the Sub
Treasury has also commenced again to with
draw cash from the New Yoric money market.
These developments caused some apprehension
of a renewal of money stringency at the period
of Uve monthly settlement. The pressure on
the stock market gathered force and the clos
!nr was weak at the lowest.
Bonds were irregular. Total sales par
United States bonds were all unchanged
