The -wheat market was oft again yes
terday, dealers quoting Portland prices
1 cent lower. The decline at Chi
cago and at athcr markets imparted
an easy tone to values and trading
was, if anything-, more sluggish than
it has been. The Liverpool market
has been ruling weak for several days,
and foreign buyers show no inclina
tion to purchase supplies here at rul
ing prices. The California demand is
also light at the moment, the trade
there having enough wheat on hand
for present requirements. It is the gen
eral opinion, however, that California
will be in the market again soon, and
some dealers estimate that they will
take 1,000,000 more before the season
closes. Should this demand come at
the time of any special foreign inquiry
an improvement in the tone of the
market and probably better prices can
be looked for. It Is this condition
that "many wheat holders are anticipat
ing and they are, therefore, hanging
on to their stocks firmly. The opin
ion prevails in many quarters that a
75 per cent market will again rule
here before long. Portland dealers yes
terday quoted club wheat at 7071c
with bluestem from 1 to 2 cents higher.
Europe is making the world's wheat
prices, and conditions there now are
being governed largely by the Argentine
crop outturn. The tendency of the
world's markets appears to be in buyers'
favor, with a larger wheat production
than a year ago, but fluctuations result
from the varying reports received from
the South American republic, as well as
from Australia land India. The latest ad
vices from Argentina say: "The Argen
tine wheat market Is easier this week,
with a quiet demand. Arrivals from the
interior are increasing slowly, and the
quality continues satisfactory. The
weather is more favorable as affecting
the threshing and movement. Estimates
of the exportable surplus have been
slightly reduced. The corn market Is firm,
and the demand quiet. Arrivals from the
interior aro very small. The late rains
have been very beneficial for the corn
A late London cable says of the situa
tion in India: "An official Indian report
for the week ending January 6 says rain
is urgently needed In eastern districts of
' the Punjab. Elsewhere the situation is
deteriorating, especially in the droughty
districts." Other reports from India say
the rainy season Is past, and there is Utile
hope for relief. The harvest In India Is
in March and April.
PLENTY OF HOP ORDERS.
But rricen Quoted Will Not rermit of Busi
ness Heine Done.
Only a moderate amount of business
was reported in the local hop market
yesterday and what was done wag be
tween dealers. Salem reported a quiet
condition of afairs. It was learned that
two lots were bought near Sllverton,
one by Joseph Harris at 9 cents and the
other by Squire Farrar at 9 cents.
Eastern orders were plentiful, but
most of them quoted prices at which
hops cannot be bought In this state.
Inquiries were also received from Lon
don, but the terms were unsatisfactory.
A letter received by the agent of a New
York firm stated that several East
ern dealers were offering 190G Oregon
hops to brewers at 12 cents.
The Watervllle, X. Y.. Times of Jan
uary 39, said of the hop market there:
"There has been a little buying since
our last at Sc to 10c, which shows that
prices have not improved. Growers are
in. a quandary as to what to do
whether to sell at the prevailing low
prices or hold for higher. This is al
ways one of the problems confronting
the hopgrowcr and the worst of it is
no ono has sufficient knowledge to
warrant giving advice." Telegraphic
press advices since that date have re
ported the New York market firmer.
A model of an improved labor-saving
hop-baler, patented by the Salem Iron
"Works, was exhibited at the Belvedero
Hotel yesterday by Conrad Krebs. This
oress will bale hops at a cost of 10
cents a bale, whereas"thc cost by the
old style balers was 30 to 35 cents. It
is also a great timc-savcr and will turn
out 24 bales pressed and sewed per
hour with a crew of only six men. One
horse will furnish all the necessary
power. Krebs Bros., of Salem, are the
agents fcr the press. The model at
tracted much attention from a large
number of hop men who were present
at the hotel.
HAY MARKET LOWER.
Warm Weather Further Depresses Local
Prices Eastern Oats Offering.
The continued warm spell has had the
effect of further depressing the hay 'mar
ket. Local stocks are large and offerings
are numerous, but the demand is very
slack, owing to the open weather. Lower
prices were consequently quoted by deal
ers yesterday. Should the weather turn
off cold, a better tone of the markt would
Oats and barley are inactive, but the
market Is very firmly maintained, as sup
plies aro limited. As choice white Oregon
oats are quoted up to $2S.50. there is somo
disposition on the part of buyers to turn
to Eastern oats, which. It is said, can be
laid down here for $25.f01?2C Though the
quality of the Eastern oats Is inferior to
those of Oregon, the difference In price
makes It an object for some purchasers to
use the imported article.
BUTTER MARKET SATISFACTORY.
Best Grades Move OfT Promptly at Full
Price Eggs Weaker.
' The butter market is rogarded by
"most of the trade as in a satisfactory
condition. Local creamery stock of the
best grade moves off as fast as made,
and recognized fancy brands .on Front
street find ready sale -at top prices.
"Lower grades are worked off at steady
rates. The entry of California butter
into this market will be later this sea
son than usual, and until it comes, it
Is believed present priocs can be main
Egg receipts were larger yesterday
than on the preceding day, and the
market had a weaker tone. Pricos were
Tne poultry market .was low with a
downward tendency. Arrivals wore not
heavy, but the demand was backward.
Some firms named a clcan-up price of
12 cents on chickens.
Good Apple Scar re.
There were no carlot rccolpts of fruits
or vegetables yesterday. The market
was fairly active at former prices.
Good apples continue scarce and in
strong demand. There is a scarcity of
cabbage on Front street.
Advance in Hams. '
A new local price list of provisions was
issued yesterday, quoting an advance of
lie on hams.

Tone Is AVcak.
NEW TO UK. Jan. 24. Speculative buying
came Into the market agafn thle morning In a.
flood and put an end temporarily to the down
ward coure of prices. There was heavy un
loading again before the clce. which was
weak. The complete restoration of wire com
munication with the West was given its share
of credit for reviled speculation. But the
technical condition of the market was much
Improved by the liquidation effected yester
day. With the weak commitments for tha
ris taken out, with large profits In hand on
the part of the powerful combination! which
precipitated the reaction with their realizing,
and the attraction of a lower level of prices
to attract a re-entry Into the market at &
profit, and with the bear account considerably
extended on the short side to offer potential
support by their necessltle to buy locks to
cover contracts, the market was In better posi
tion to resume the advance than It was to
continue It before the reaction.
The conspicuous feature of the resumption
waA the marked preference shown for stocks
of the cheaper grade, both among the rail
roads and Industrials. Fifty separate fceues
could be enumerated In which no dividend
are pakl, and which were up successively in
the trading today and rushed to a higher level.
Gains ranged all the way from I to 3 point.
The spread of the demand Is from the higher
grade dividend payer to the lower grade of
Union Pacific and Amalgamated Copper were
sustaining factors for the llet. and when
Union Pacific began to crumble, the effect on
the general list was apparent. Action on the
Union Pacific dividend has usually been taken
before this period, and when the executive
committee adjourned without action today,
misgivings arose about an advance In the rate
which was counted upon. The low-priced
storks saved fomc remnants of their earlier
gain, but there were some threatening breaks
In the high-priced stocks, especially St. Paul.

NEW PIiAX SUGGESTED FOR OR
GAIZATIOX OF GROWERS.
D. Iv. Bill Favors Marketing of
State's Product at Xcw York or
London by Association.
OREGON CITT. Or.. Jan. 24. tSpccial.)
D. K. Bill, a practical hop grower and mana
ger of Dr. Nlchol's large hop yard near this
city, has devised a plan la the operation of
which he considers lies a solution In a large
measure at least of the problem of low
prtees with whlcb Willamette Valley growers'
have been contending for several yean.
Mr. Bill would form a hop growers" organi
zation, founded en a eenslble and substantial
business basis. Such an organization, he con
tends, should be limited as to membership to
persons actively engaged In the growing of
hops, and should Include men of some mean.
The secret of 3lr. B1HV plan would depend on
getting a majority of the growers of the tate
Interested aad. having pooled their product.
dLxpose of the rant in the New Tork or Ixm
don markets throsgh a personal representative
of the growers organization.
According to the plan of Mr. BUI. he would
have the growers with ready money advance
to the smaller grower the nece-jsary means
with which to harvest the crop, the borrower,
however, to pay a legal rate of Interest for
the use of the money to the man making the
Wan. The oaly expenee to which the Individ
ual member of the organization would be
placed In dleleg of his crop would be the
actual freight charge and other necessary ex
penses In forwarding hls hops to the agent at
New Tork. At the beginning of each season
growers would be cautioned to pick cleanly
and properly cure their hops, otherwise the
product would not be received by- the associa
tion. In this way an 'improved and uniform
standard as to quality could be established
ind a greater demand result for the Oregon
crop, which I known to b the best In the
world. Immediately following the baling of
the crop, the hoes of each member of the as
sociation weald be Inspected and graded by
an authorized representative of the organiza
tion, and th grading? would not b" disturbed.
In disposing of the crop. Mr. Bill would re
rve to ech grower the privilege of author
izing the association to dispose of hl hopo at
any time that he was satisfied with market
conditions and wished to
Mr. BUI has made a iudy of the situation
with respect to the demoralized condition of
the hop market this year and other seasons,
and he has reached the "conclusion that It U
only through concerted action on the part of
growers that prices at all approximating the
true value of their product can be realized. He
will try and Interest growers sufficiently to
go Into suoh an organization an he suggests.
