Better Movement Is Expected

LIVESTOCK Cattle coining forward
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."
Market Is Again Lively, and Full Prices Arc
. 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, 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.
Jut Dressed Meats Sell 'Readily at Top
The livestock market has ruled rather auiet
tor several days. Very few cattle are com
ing forward and the demand for them is
limited. Hogs are very etrong at full prices.
Sheep are steady 'at' quotations.
The dressed meat .market is in good ahan
Ivith moat of the list strong. Receipts of
1-eal have been heavier th!n wppV nt
Wth ready sale. Good pork has been In light
pupply. Mutton is very scarce, but the few
that came in sold quickly, though prices are
beyond the average buyer. Beef is steady
md in good demand.
o More Eggs Expected t Go NertttfUatll
Navigation Opens.
Taking Front street as a whole, supplies
K egga were not heavy yesterday, and the
larket was steady. General quotations were
324 cents. The market has been helned
hi the past two days by shipments to Seattle
ind Alaska, but they are practically over
pith now, and no more are expected to go to
ac Far North until navigation opens In tho
ate Spring.
1 The poultry market was In better shape aa
locelpts were very .light.' Thedemand for
Ihlckens was strong, and a good market on
lem is expected for the remainder of the
reek. Ducks, geese and turkeys were slow.
.mere was no cnange in the butter market.
Receipts of Vegetables.
A car of California celery arrived yester-
1 17V and another car is due today. There
rill also be a car of sweet' potatoes today
ad a mixed car of cabbage and cauliflower
.erpected tomorrow.
uhe orange market rules very Arm. with a
alne .of es on the street juid none due to
rlvo before Monday. Apples are ia streag
request, and are bringing remarkably good
prices, considering the quality of some of the
Advance la PrerlftteBs.
A new price card on provisions was Issued
yesterday by the Union Meat Company, -which
quotes a general advance of from '4 to !j
cent on hams and bacon and- cent on reg
ular abort clears, .dry salt and smoked. These
advance are in lino with the higher price
ruling on hogs.

Strong Demand In That Section for
Olds and the Cheaper
Grades of Hops.
GERVAIS. Or.. Feb. 7. (Special.) There
have been two sales of 1005 hops In this sec
tion In -the past few days. 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. John C Barnes
has rented of Julius Wolf, of SUverteon. 50
a crw of growing hops, or what Is known as
the Belgian Hill yard. The roots appear to
have come through the Winter in excellent
shape. .

Uncertainty Over Strike Mat
ter a Repressive Factor.
. 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. Amalgamated Copper was
subjected to some pressure, presumably by the
yielding tendency of prices of the metal.
The closing showed an easy tone and the mar
ket generally was quiet and In spots easier.
Bonds were Irregular, Total sales, par value,
$4,163,000. United States bonds were all un
changed on call.

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
Liberal local receipts and a poor demand
for cash grain weakened the corn market.
May closed c off at 44244c
The eats market was steady. May closed

Stocks Are Accumulating- and Spoil

Wharves limited Demand for
Strictly Fancy Burbanks.
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.
