HOPS Flurry in state markets
The wholesale fruit dealers of Front street
arc highly indignant at the repeated attacks
that have been made upon County Fruit In
spector Reld by a certain evening paper of
this city, which they declare are entirely un
warranted. They regard Mr. Reid as an ef
ficient and conscientious official, who has al
ready done much good in his particular line.
That the benefits will be even greater in years
-io come Is apparent to any one with common
cense, as Inspector Rdd, by educating the
farmers up to the proper methods of culti
vating and spraying their trees, has gone di
rectly to the root of the matter. The abuse
heaped on Mr. Reld by the c-cnlng paper la
regarded as an expression of personal malice
on tho part of the writer of the articles. The
only persons in this city who are in a posi
tion to Judge of the merits of the Inspector's
won: arc the merchants of Front street, and
that they indorse him is shown by the fol
lowing letter, which was presented to him yes
terday: "Portland, Or.. Jan. 10. James H. Reld,
Fruit Inspector Dear sir: The undersigned
fruit Jobbers, realizing the fact that your un
tiring effort toward improving the quality
nnd pack of fruits Intended for sale in thla
market, have been and are of inestimable value
to the general industry of the state, desire that
you accept the Inclosed order on Buffum &
Pendleton for the bent hat in their house as a
mark of their appreciation.

WHEAT MARKET BULL.
Offerings Are Light and Holders Ask More
Tlian Buyer Will Pay.
The local wheat market is in almost a stag
nant condition. Offerings are very light, as
but a comparatively rmall amount of grain
remains untold in territory tributary to this
city, and what Is left is in strong hands.
Buyers show no willingness to pay the prices
asked and a dull market is the reoult. The
undertone yesterday was rather weak at the
quotations which were given by dealers as 71
72 cents for club and 7374 cents for blue
stem. "Our farmers are almont capitalists," says
Broomhall in discussing the general situation.
"Tho world's crop ! one of the largest ever
recorded, buf the price settler Is the demand.
In the case of crop returns the value of tho
annual compilation Is greatly reduced by the
new methods adopted by the Russian and
Indian officials in arriving at their annual es
timates', by which the llgures for the past three
years have been arbitrarily increased to the
extent of perhaps 240,000.000 bushels. It is
not so much the absolute size of theeroD.
it lanrc or small, which determines the
price at which it soils, but rather the dlspo-
anion of the holder. '
The British government has issued the fol
lowing dispatch from the Viceroy of India,
dated December 10, 1003: "Crop prospects dur
ing the week ending December 9: West United
Provinces No rain. It is urgently wanted in
Mccrut, Rohllkhand nnd Allahabad divisions.
crops are withering. liundlekhand Prices
are high still, with a tendency to rise; test
relief works closed in one dlrtrlct. but are
being opened in others. Rajputana No rain;
large numbers of the cultivating and menial
classes have emigrated from Aimermerwura
those remaining come freely on relief; Spring
crop sewing much restricted, and prospects arc
reported to be poor in North and East Raj
putana. Central India No rain; situation
same as last reported. Bombay No rain; it
is urgently wanted In Dcocan and Kaarnatak;
test relief works opened in the Doccan dis
trict. Hyderabad No rain; situation unim
proved; in other provinces, prospects fair or
contracted with Edward Pelett for 10,000
pounds of hops each year for the next five
years, at 10 cents per pound." '
The only activity Just now seems to bo in
Oregon, where the only good hops can bo
found. The California market is neglected and
trade in New York is dull. according to the
"Watervllle Times of January 5, which jays:
'It looks as though the dullness of the holi
days was to last through January. Buyers
claim there is no demand from brewers, and
that very little will be doing for a month yet.
The holders of hops are disgusted at the low
prices offered and roost of them promptly re
fute to accept an offer In the few InMancea
when one la made. We have beard that the
Hathaway lot near Orlskany Falls was sold
at 10 cents. Other hops have been sold as
low as 7 cents.
More Eggs Coming Id.
Receipts of eggs show a gradual increase.
Trading yesterday was generally done at 28
Vents, but other prices were Quoted.
Poultry cleaned up promptly at the quota
tions. The strongest demand was for hens,
duoka and geese.
The butter market waa unchanged.
Dressed Meat Sell Readily.
Receipts of dresoed hogs yesterday were
larger than for any time In three weeks, but
the demand was strong and they moved off
readily at firm prices. Veal was also plenti
ful, but quickly cleaned up.

POTATO MARKET IMPROVING.
But No Demand for Poor Stock Hothouse
Lettuce Lower. "
An Improved feeling is noted in the potato
market. The shipping demand continues to
be for fancy grades, which are very scarce
and in the abeence of these, buyers are pick
ing up the next best offerings to be had. Poor
scrubby stock is still a drug on the market
and is hard to move at 50 cents a sack. A
light inquiry is still noted in the vegetable
market. Stocks are ample, and in the case
of hothouse lettuce, lower prices are quoted.
A car of celery is due today. Advices from
San Francisco say that cabbage Is very firm
there and will not go lower.
A car of fancy oranges arrived yesterday
and a car of Riversides is due today or tomorrow.
WANT HOPS BADLY.
Buying Movement in This Stat Is Gaining
Tho hopbuyir.g movement seems to be gain
ing force Instead of diminishing. Those deal
ers who last month declared that the market
would die a natural death at the close of the
year have another guess coming, for the ac
tivity since January 1 has been far greater
than In the same period before New Year's.
Almost every dealer in the city has orders,
some of them big ones, though they are loth
to acknowledge it. The buying is said to be
largely by Eastern Arms that sold short, and
now, fearing that the market will get away
from them, are covering as fast as possible.
Ten and 104 cents was reported offered for
choice hops at Aurora yesterday, but holders
of these grades were generally above the
market. The trade was Interested during the
day in a report from Hlllsboro that tho Cates
lot of about 500 bales'-had been sold at 8si
cents. The Tenness lot of 40 bales at Oregon
City was bought by Fred Shores at 8 cents,'
who aUso nought two other lots there, aggre
gating 50 bales, at the same price.

Further Contraction in ttho Activity
of Dealings Prices Gradually
Movo to a Jxnvcr Xicvcl.
Talk of Gold Exports.
NEW YORK. Jan. 10. There was a further
contraction In the activity of the dealings in
stocks today and the dUpoltioa to take proflu
was even more clearly manifest than yester
day. The profit-taking, however, was con
ducted in an orderly and systemaUc manner
and without creating any serious disturbances
of values. The market still showed itself
under effective control.
Prices opened higher all around, the up
ward spurt at the beginning extending to a
wide man-in In some cases. This was evi
dently for the purpose of affording a belter
basts fcr selling stocks and the process was
immediately begun. There was a striking
demonstration .of the continued power of the
organized speculation to sixain prices. Tho
same force was perceptible during the day In
the effective sustaining influences of the mark
ing up of special stocks which served as a
brake on the downward course of the general
market under the psocess of realizing.
There was no new news to account for
the day's movement- of prices. The selling
to realize proflts seemed In pursuance of the
fixed plan of operation entered, upon in tho
early stages of the movement by the pow
erful speculaUve combination ruling the mar
ket. That Is to say, stocks were taken and
held with obstinate determination enough
through the 125 per cent money rate of De
cember with the fixed purpoto of meeting the
general outidde demand to bo expected with

FAILUH ES LAST YEAR
SHOWIXGf IS A MOST FAVOR
Striking Improvement as Compared
with 1901 Statistics Belutlnrr
to the Pacific States. .
R. G. Dan & Co.' annual report of failures
contains the following Information:
Commercial failures- in the United States
during the year 1903 were 11:320 In number,
with assets of $57,828,090 and liabilities of
1192.678,172. a most otriklng Improvement
compared with the 12,199 failures in 1904.
when assets were $S4,4SS,G76 and liabilities
J HI. 202.311. In every comparison the figures
for 1903 are more satisfactory than those of
the previous year. Thus. In manufacturing
operation- there were 2726 failures against
2848. while liabilities were $14,252,629. against
f32.950.473; trading fallurto numbered 8473,
against 8S9S. and liabilities were S5I.734.3o3,
compared with 564.429.C44. Other commercial
failure, such as brokerage, real estate, insur
ance, etc., not properly Included In the two
principal divisions, were 519 In numbor and
$6,639,040 la amount, against 433 failures In
1904. when the liabilities were ?2J.S22.194.
This Is the most striking decrease in amount of
liabilitlef. and It- partly due to the Baltimore
fire la the previous year, although the de
creases were aim large In other sections of
the country, notably New York. Massachusetts
and Illinois. In addition to the commercial
failures, there were 78 suspensions of banks
and other fiduciary lnrtltutlons, with nn ag
gregate defaulted Indebtedness of 120.227.153.
against 99 in the previous year for ?28,158,811."

pares as follows with 1004:

Banking 20,227,155 23.15S.8ll
A striking decrease in both number and lia
bilities of iBeotveneics in the year 1905, as
compared with the previous year, is a most
encouraging evidence of the stronger position
of the business community, and the compari
son with 100 Is still more satisfactory. Dur
ing the past 20 years the amount of capital
inverted In the various gainful occupations
has Increased almost steadily and the volume
of trade expanded so remarkably that it
would be logical to expect the amount of de
faulted Indebtedness to rise in a similar ratio.
That it haa not done so I conclusive evidence
of progress in the right direction, of the more
conservative methods prevailing and the gen
erally healthier situation. In the two decades
just ended there have bean many years of
prosperity, yet IS 90 la the only year that re
corded smaller liabilities than 1903.

bilities and average amount of liabilities each
