THE MORNING OREGONIAN, THURSDAY, PEBRtTAUX S, 190G. 13 MOT TMDE QUIET Better Movement Is Expected Later in the Season. CALIFORNIA WANTS MORE Hcvival of. Export Flour Demand Would Strengthen Prices In the Northwest, Where Stocks Arc Small Foreign Conditions. "WHEAT Improved demand- expect ed later In season. HOPS Market very firm and active. VEGETABLES Liberal supplies ar rive and about due. FRUIT Scarcity of large-size or anges. EGGS Break Jn prices expected. POULTRY Strong market lor chickens. LIVESTOCK Cattle coining forward slowly. DRESSED MEATS Veal, pork- and beef strong. PROVISIONS Advances In hams, bacon and short clears. Local "wheat prices do not show any ma terial change from those quoted a week ago. "While the Chicago and Liverpool markets have advanced somewhat, San Francisco has ahown a, decline, owing to the wet weather and .better prospects for tho coming crop. How thfr weather conditions can affect 1003 wheat, however. It Is difficult to sec. The dull nets of the California market Is explained by the tact tliat the rolllj have shut down owing to the lack of export business. Sufficient stocks of wheat are carried there for flour grinding for present homo requirements, but It is believed more will be needed for this purpose before the new crop Is ready. Any revival of tho export flour demand, even a small one, would quickly strengthen the po sition of wheat holders In the Northwest. Stocks of unsold grain are small and In O. R. fc 2. territory very little Is to be had. Besides a continuance of the past firm ness, there are no new development In the markets for oats and barley. Stocks are not heavy and trading is only moderately active. The latest weekly foreign crop summary of Broomhall'u says: "United Kingdom The condition of the crops continues fair. France The crops are in fair condition; supplies of good wheat are very scarce and there Is more talk of im porting foreign grain. Germany Snow has fallen and the recent weather has Improved tne condition of tho crops, but still some com plaints are heard; there is also talk of a ehort acreage, as well as reports stating that loreign purchases will continue to be made after March 1. Hungary Snow has fallen. Roumanla The condition of the crops is fa vorable. Russia The weather is milder, with rains In the south, otherwise the situation ia favorable: the movement is fair." MANY HOPS SOLD. Market Is Again Lively, and Full Prices Arc Paid. . jrh nop market was lively -asuin' yesterdirr- though the transactions did not reach the record volume of those on Tuesday, when close to 2000 bales changed hands. Reporto were received yesterday of sales aggregating ji oaies. ana it is believed 200 or 300 bales. more were disposed of at points up the val ley. Besides this, a number of transactions took place "between -local dealers. At the rate that hops have been selllnir in ! the last few days, the Oregon suddIv will not last more than a week or so longer, as well-posted men in tho trade say there are only 12,000 to 14,000 bales left in rowers I hands in the state. This explains well enough the pressure to buy on tho part of many of tne dealers. It Is also probable that some of them are trying to anticipate the consign ment plan that M. H. Durst has submitted to the growers, which, if carried out, would take a good ehare of the hops out of th country and leave only an Insignificant quan- Itity remaining to fill tho requirements of the I shorts. Julius Plncus. of Lachmund & Plncus. of j Salem, believes the Durst plan would be an excellent thing for the market. "'It is grather late to work it now." he said, "but if it goes through it is bound to have a I good effect on prices of the coming cron. I I hope it will be successful." The heaviest buyer yesterday was the iz Clemens Horst Company, which secured "on Ibales from Joe Harris, of Salem, at jiu. .. -. land paid Rubens, of Fairfield, 10 cents for 90-bale lot. H. J. Ottenhelmer bourtit th Armes lot of 131 bales at Woodburn at 9V4 loents. Lachmund & Plncus made several purchases aggregating 130 bales at 0 and 94 cents, -j.no demand for old hops continued Igood and one lot of 100 bales was disposed of for C cents. The hops belonged to Martin Vdams, of Overton, and the purchaser was Backus, of Milwaukic. I LIVESTOCK MARKET DULL. Jut Dressed Meats Sell 'Readily at Top Prices.

Elzard Dupius sold 123 bales at 10 cents to McKlnley Mitch ell, and John Halemann 25 bales at 9 cents to Salem dealers. These lots were of choice quality. There yet remains several ' more large lots, which the growers are holding for advanced prices, and dealers are negotiating for several other lota hereabouts at ruling prices. There Is qcjte a demand, at a price, for olds and cheaper grades: in fact, the best demand appears to be for the cheaper kinds. The weather conditions are the very best and bopgrowers are rapidly clearing up their yards of old vines and burning them. There will he no hopyards plowed up In this sec tion. There are fewer changes In tbore rent ing yards thsn usual, bur a number of new yards are finding renters.

E Uncertainty Over Strike Mat ter a Repressive Factor. STOCK MARKET VERY DULL . i Outlook for Another Poor Bank Statement Saturday Rumors of Gold Engagements TJafoundcd. Amalgam a ted Is Pressed. NEW TORK. Feb. 7. There was further falling off of business at the Stock Exchange, today, aad the general list fell Into a rendi tion, of neglect. A flip of speculative activity In a few of the recent favorites redeemed the market from a condition of mid-Summer dull ness. . Aa It was, the ticker was practically at standstill at some periods of tse dy. There was no marked evidence of depression, but there was equally an abiencc tf demand. Less apprebe&Moa was felt over the outcome of the wage controversy In the coal fields and that feature ceased to Induce any active selling of stocks. But it is realized that the definite decision, of the question of a strike must remain suspended until the outcome of the consultations arranged for next week in New York. Until that definite, outcome, the uncertainty of the matter is expected to ex ercise a repressive .Influence on speculation. This probability had as much to do as any one thing with the unwillingness to make speculative commitments ia the market. The outlook is for another poor bank state ment on Saturday and with a holiday follow ing on Monday, the Inclination to defer ipec ulatlve operations is emphasized. The sub Treasury's absorption of funds since Saturday rote to nearly $3,000,000. according to today's statement of operations. There Is general agreement also among bankers that last Sat urday's bank statement understated the de crease in cash, which makes it probable that the effect wilt be thrown over onto this week's statement under the working of the system of averages. Foreign exchange continues to rule firm and the report gained circulation this morn ing that gold bad been engaged for export to a large amount. Stocks weakened upon the rumor, which proved unfounded, however. Discounts were firm in London and Berlin, but eased slightly at Paris. The expanding tendency of bank. loans here Is attributed partly to the recall of credits placed here by Interior institutions while money rates were firm. The present period of the year, however. Is one of normal loan ex panKon, owing to the custom of deferring large financial operations at this season, when currency la likely to be flowing back to reserve centers. The likelihood of require ments -upon available capital Tor Intended financial projects comes in for consideration In the money market and banking outlook. The few movements of any note In today's market were due to special causes. Those at fectlng the Hill roads and the Pacifies went well understood.

Caused by Xews From Australia of Increase In Crop of That Country. CHICAGO, Feb. 7. During the early part of the session, the feeling In the wheat pit was steady. Numerous reports of damage to the crops In Nebraska. Kansas and Missouri wero received, but these dispatches did not offset the fact that prices in Liverpool did hot reflect the interest shown in yesterday's mar ket here. A cablegram from Argentina re porting a reduction of 13 per cent in the surplus for export in that country encouraged the bears. Later In the day, however, a dis patch was received from Australia placing the wheat crop of that Island at 68.000,000, against 53. COO. 00O bushels last year. This caused ac tive selling by commission houses and prices declined steadily, closing almost at the low est point of the day. May opened unchanged to a shade higher, at &3QS&c sold between 84T40S3C, and Sdc cloning off CSc, at 84GS3c Liberal local receipts and a poor demand for cash grain weakened the corn market.

SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 7. (Special.) Large dealers In potatoes report a greatly de pressed market. The lower grades of river and Oregon stock are almost unsalable with the quantity accumulating and spoiling on the wharves and In the warehouses. There l a limited demand for strictly fancy, but even that grade shows easiness. About five car loads of Oregon potatoes arc on the railroad track awaiting sale and a considerable part of the receipts by the last steamer are on the wharf unsold with a steamer due tomor row with fresh supplies. The best Oregons are hard to sell above 31.10. though occasional small lots of extra bring $1.151.20. Onions are also very weak. Fancy Oregon are freely offered at 31.15 and some sales are reported at 31.10. Larger supplies arc re ported to be on the way. Unexpectedly larger arrivals of oranges. In cluding much poorer stock, have greatly weak ened that fruit, except stanenrd navels, which are not plentiful. The auction salo scheduled for today was again postponed, owing to the absence of buyers. Fancy ap ples are firm. Bananas are abundant. Grain futures had a sharp little riso on short covering.

PARIS. Feb. 7. Strong- efforts con tinue to be made In behalf of the Cua tcllano family- to bring: about the abandonment of the divorce suit begun by the Countess de Castellane, but up to the present the desired result has not been achieved. An attempt made to obtain the Countess' assent to a judicial reparation without an abso lute divorce has also been unsuccess ful and probably the case will be heard three weeks hence. According to the French law there is no further necessity for the defendant to appear unless the Judge decides that his evidence is essential. The pro nouncement of a decree releases any contract relating- to marriage settle ment, each party resuming- control of his or her own property. A divorced woman may not remarry within ten month3 after a judgment, while an appeal against a decision must be lodged within six months. A report which cannot be confirmed says that Count Bonl lias entered a counter pica, claiming- heavy damages. AT THE HOTELS. The Portland H. T. Walsh. Denver; A. N. Lee. Chicago; W. S.
