Tbere was not so much done in the hop
market yesterday as on. the two preceding
days, yet trading continued Quito active. Se
eial sales were made by growers and two or
three large lots passed between dealers. Among
the country sales was the Gray lot of 137
bales at Bucna Vista, which H. L. Hart
bought at 10 ccntn. The market ruled very
strong with, a good demand for both 1003 and
A call for a meeting of hopgrowers will be
ltsued in a few days to consider the plan of
M, H. Durst to ship a part, of the remaining
crop to London in order to improve the mar
ket her. The meeting will probably be held
in this city in -the -early part of next week.
Joseph Harris, of Salem, representing Ben
jamin Schwarz & Sons, of New York, who
was at the Belvedere yesterday, believes prices
would advance materially if it were not for
the readiness shown by some growers to aell
at prevailing quotations. Many of the hold
ers, he says, are vers -Arm, but others are
constantly letting go, and as long as dealers
can get hops at theso prices they will not
Exports of hops from New York from Sep
tember 1 up to the close of last week wero
28,080 .bales, and Import were 12,819 bales.
In the same period last season the exports
ere G2.4G2 bales and the imports 37C2 bales.
As a good English demand has lately sprung
up, a material increase in the export figures
can be looked for. The Treasury Department
has issued a summary of the receipts from
the No-a Scotia barrel tax on beer for the
last two calendar years, as follows:
January 1 to December 31, 1004... .$48,447,509
January 1 to December 31, 1005.... 62,142,010
Increase for 1005 S 3,095,410
The barrel tax in December. 1004, was
$3,401,058 and in December, 1905, $4,094,001.
The losses suffered by the English hop
growers laet year by reason of low prices In
cident to tht big yield there are thus set forth
by Lupulln in an article in the Mark Lane
A brief glance at the abnormal crop of last
year will, I think, convince us that an exces
sive yield Is not necessarily profitable to the
industry -as -a -whole -Wer have, harvested; in"
round numbers, 700,000 cwta., and I suppose
we may accept 40s per cwU as the average
value. -If this be approximately correct; the
total returns to growers cannot exceed 1,500,
000. On the other hand, although the expenses
of cultivation have been lighter than usual,
the picking expenses were much heavier, and
we cannot hardly put the actual outlay at
less than 40 per acre, on which basis the ex
penditure Is not far short of 2,000,000. There
Is, therefore, little doubt that the English hop
growers have In the aggregate lost a consid
erable amount by the transactions of the past
year. The factors" and merchants are not
much better off. The low range of prices has
hindered the realization of much gross .profit,
and "heavy trading expenses have so far re
duced the apparent gains that I fear the bal
ance is very unsatisfactory. Thus the year
1005 cannot be recorded in the history of our
industry as a season to which wc may refer
with pleasure, and I trust that 1905 has
brighter tiroes in store for us.

Arrivals . of Celery Apples From Idaho la
the New York Market,'
A good country and city demand for fruits
and vegetables was reported yesterday. Firm
ness marks nearly all lines. A car of celery
arrived during the day and another car will
bo In today.
The following report on the New York apple
market is from the Frultman's Guide of Febru
The market took a atlll stronger turn than
was experienced last week on Monday, and
notwithstanding free offerings, prices held up
somewhat higher. A car of Idaho apples in
on that day sold at J2.252.50 for Roman
Beauties, and 52.25g-2.75 for Wlnesaps and
Ben Davis. This strong condition of affairs
continued all through the week, the market re
maining firm and high for fancy fruit, which
was in no surplus. The home markets are
doing so well that there is not a great deal
of inclination to ship abroad. The range:

According to the Guide, the total exports of
apples from the port of New York from the
beginning of the season until January 81
were 1.897,541 barrels, as compared with
1,762.202 barrels in the same period of the
v CHICKENS VERY SCARCE.
'Receipts Not Large Enough for the Local
Not near enough chickens are coming in to
supply the local -market, and prices arc con
sequently very firm. Other kinds of poultry
are not In such good demand.
One wholesale firm was still at work yester
day on an egg order for Alaska shipment,
and this helped to keep the market In condi
tion, but other dealers found their stocks
again accumulating and forecasted a weaker
market for the remainder of the week.
In moat quarters of the butter trade, the re
port was of light stocks and a good demand,
and therefore of a very firm tone prevailing.
A close watch is being kept on the California
butter market, however.

rarely seen In the market except at what Is
called the period of midsummer dullness.
Prices drifted aimlessly, and soon reached
the limits of fluctuation, coming back over
the earlier course and backing and filling

In the market with the expectation of deriving
a profit from price changes and the growth
of discouragement will Induce sach holders
to throw over their contracts as a conse
quence of the very dullnesa of-the market.
Engagements ahead have not served to check
the continuance of the demand, and, while
the present condition was bound to -develop
as an accei-ory consequent upon the expan
sion of demand faster than production, the
effect on speculative sentiment of the checks
is ntllt felt.
Movements in the United States steel
stocks, usually very sluggish, are of marked
effect on general sentiment. The special
weakness in these rtockt today, therefore,
hurt the whole market. The postponement of
action upon the Union Pacific dividend un

expectation was very general that the execu
tive committee would recommend action at
its meeting today. The uncertainties of the
coal strike outlook were underlying Influences
towards degression because of the widespread
effect such a contest would have upon the
whole Industrial situation.

The grave danger of a general strike of

RACE FOR NACHES VALLEY
Xorth Xakima Kallroad'HHSteniiig; to
NORTH TAKIMaT Wash.. Feb. S.
(Speclal.) A rush order for material and
supplies given Tacoma people by the
Xorth Taklma & "Valley Railway con
tractors Illustrates the haste of ihe
builders of that road to reach the Upper
Naches Valley before any other railway
can get a foothold there. An extra force
of men has been put to work in the" few
remaining short stretches where delay
was occasioned by the failure of the com
pany to get the right of way until it waa
granted by the court last week. Since
last week the graders have worked night
and day, and the tracklayers are keep
ing close behind them.
The material ordered from Tacoma is
to prevent any possible delay that may
be occasioned by running out of material.
A bridge Is now being taken to the
Naches River to be thrown across it a?
soon as the piles arc driven. It Is be
lieved here that grading on the upper
end of the line will be commenced at
once, and that the road will be pushed
toward the mountains as fast as pos
sible. The nerti spur from' here will be to
the Moxce country.
