PROVISIONS Further advance re
ported. Th Oregon wool market is slow in setting;
under may. It was expected that a heavy
amount of business would have been transact
ed by this time, but practically nothing- has
been accomplished yet. In Eastern Oregon
buyers .inl sellers are apart in their views by
several cents and neither side shows any dis
position yet to make concession. Much the
came condition exists In the western part of
the state. The local mills are not In the
market yet for Valley wools, and, buyers have
reduced their quotations to correspond with
the latert pricrs at Boston. Fine Valley
wools are quoted here at 2425 cents and
coarse wool of which about 80 per cent of
the Valley clip la composed, are quoted at 22
t?Z3 cents. Growers, as a rule, are looking
forward to last year'a prices, but the deal
era say there Is no present prospects of their
hopes beinc realized.
A few small lots of Eastern Oregon wool
were disposed of in the past week, but none
of them Important, so far as can be learned.
Nothing worth mentioning has been reported
in the way of Eastern "Washington or Idaho
business. Shearing continues in Utah, but
no sales are being made now. However, the
larger part of the clip has been contracted
and these wools are being shipped to Eastern
purchasers as fast as shown. Nevada wools
are said to be of rather heavier shrinkage,
and of poorer quality than laat year. No
contracting has been recently done in Wyom
ing. Shearing Is going on In California. At
las the deadlock in Montana has been brok
en, ami wool has been contracted, A recent
advice from Lewiaton reports the purchase
of about 5o0,0oo pounds of wool by a promi
nent Boston firm at 25 cents. Nona of the
other Eastern buyers, however, are follow
p tng his lead.
Discussing the effect of the San Francisco
disaster on the wool market, the Boston Com
mercial Bulletin says:
The ban Francisco catastrophe has had no
effect upon this market, except one of sor
row for the misfortune which has befallen
that city. The wools from California are of
shnrt staple, and the entire clip is only about
12.tWXt.tNH pounds. Consequently, the loss of
around 3,000,000 pounds in San Francisco has
occasioned no particular comment among mer
chants. However, there in another side to
tha aftermath of the disaster, and that is
the poeslble effect the withdrawal of large
sums of money from Eastern banks to adjust
Insurance claims will have upon wool deal
era" policies. Hartford. Conn., which was
hard hit in insurance los&ea, has been . Isigo
lender to wool men, and the diverting of
money to insurance companies will not make
it eaay for our merchants to obtain low rates.
It Is generally contended that the exodus of
substantial funds to the West will naturally
tlghten the money market, and with the specie
harder to obtain here merchants will act more
conservatively about buying clips In the West
t prices that the growers are now asking.
On the other hand. It in eaid that the bulk
f the money mill evenmally return in circula
tion to the East, as there wod be no ne
cessity for expending any conquerable part of
it for many months while building operations
would be under way. Several hundred thou
nd suits of clothes will be required to re
place those destroyed-; and, , as a Whole, it Is
felt that the increased business will offset
any evil influences. The main thing now
holding the attention of the dealers is the
money market, and its couree in the next few
weeks will govern the acts of many.
FAISE IN HOP' MARKET.
lHce Too Hiajh for. Kastemers, and Specu
lators Slow to Raise It.
There w as not much doing in the hop mar
Vet yesterday. No ordera were on hand at
pricea that would permit of much business,
and those that were speculatively inclined
were alow to furthej advance the market, for
by that means only cculd they get hops. The
actual business of the day was confined to a
carload of primes that passed between two
dealers at 11 H centa and the sale of a small
lot of very Inferior quality at centa
There were rumors of transactions at 12
and 12H cents, but they could not be verified,
and it wa also said that a fraction ever 13
cents was offered for a choice lot. The high
mark on the present movement remains on
the McKinley Mitchell lot. which the J. W.
eavey Company paid 12i cents for. But
the market is very strong and excite end
without doubt will advance before It declines.
COOS BAY Bl'TTKtt,
hblpment to Arrive Today W B Dis
tributed Among- Local Trade.
A large shipment of Coos Bay butter is
looked for today. It is the surplus of the
creameries In that ec:ion. which before the
lire shipped to San Francisco, but owing to
the lack of storage facilities there are forced
to send their extra product to this city. The
lot will be distributed among the local trade
and should be worked off without difficulty.
Yesterday's movement was good and the mai
ket was steady.
Eggs were firm and in active oemand. . Re
ceipts In some quarters were light, but on
the whole were moderately large.
All kinds of poultry, except Spring chick
ens, were in strong request.
CONDEMNATION OK STRAWBERRIES.
Different Opinions on Front Street as to
City Market Inspector's Work.
The City Market 'Inspector, Mr. Sarah A.
Evans, was at the depot when the California
express arrived yesterday morning- on the
lookout for bad California strawberries.
Three hundred and fifty crates were received
and of these a number were condemned. It
is only natural under present conditions for
some California fruit to arrive In bad order
'and the wholesalers therefore believe the In
spector should be more lenient with them:
They are willing to have decayed or spoiled
berries condemned, but do not think an entire
lot should be thrown out because a few
pounds are In bad condlton. It is probable
the will take up the matter with the City
Auornry today, aft iome of them do not think
the inspector has the right. unor the law,
to conivmn fruit shirred here Mr sale. Ery
effort la made by the jobbers to get sound
fruit from the south, and they declare it is
not their fault if some of it spoil in transit.
They alo assert that the consumers are the
judges of the quality of the berries. On the
other hand, a few of the Jobbers fully Indorse
the inspector's action and hope that In the
interest of clean, sound fruit, she will keep
up her work, and the general public will nat
urally take the same view.
There was a good demand for California
strawberries, and most of the offerings
brought $1.50 a crate. There were come Dol
lar berries In the lot which sold for 91.75.
Twenty-live crates of Oregon strawberries
were received and the price dropped to 20
26 cents. Heavy receipts of Oregon berries
am looked for today. -
Other arrivals on Front street were - one
car of oranges, one car of lemons and two
cars of cabbage.
MOHAIR SEASON CLOSED.
Eastern Dealers Hare Difficulty In Making
The mohair market In this state is practical
ly over for the season. The last pool sale
has betn held and the few lots still in first
hands will be disposed of at private sa!e. in
the East, domestic hair is quiet. There is
interest being shown in the different offer
ings, but dealers seem unable to make sales.
.Foreign hair la selling in its usual molest
way at previous pricea Shearing of Angora
goats at Brackett, Tex., has been completed,
and 15,000 pounds are now In store awaiting
offers of suitable prices. On account of the
goats shedding their hair the clip was rather

Provisions Advance Again.
Prices of provisions continue to rise. Ad
vance were .announced yesterday of cent
Ion hams, H cent on bacon and 1 cent on
boiled hams. The upward tendency in all
hog products is due principally to the short
supply and high price of live hogs In this
section. These condition have also been ag
gravated lately by the drain on local stocks
on account of the San Francisco fire. The
total advance in the principal line of provi
sions over the prices current January 1. 1906,
follow: Hams, 2ty cents: shoulders, 2j
cents: bacon, 2 cent; dry salt cured meats,
1 cent; lard, 1 cents.
Too Much Veal Arrives.
If It had. not been for good shipping order?,
a slump would have occurred In the veal mar
ket yesterday, for receipts were far beyond
local requirements. As it was, all the out
side points tributarj- to this city were sup
plied and with heavy arrivals again today,
the market will be In a bad way. Dealers are
advising their shippers to hold back supplies
until' the market recovers. It takes a very
fancy offering now to bring 7 centa

SELLING IS OVER
But Stock Market Continues
Nervous and Unsettled.
CALL MONEY IS EASIER
Forthcoming Report of Standard Oil
Inquiry Causes Apprehension
and Lead to Sharp Break
NEW TORK. May 3. The stock market re
flected the nervous and uncertain tone of
speculation In the constant and feverish fluc
tuations of pries during the day. There was
no renewal of liquidation In such crashy vol
umes aa that of yesterday, but there waa an
evident apprehension of such resumption.
There was a marked contraction in the activ
ity of the market and this. In itself, waa ad
vanced as an argument that the worst of the
liquidation was over.
It is the general conviction that so extensive
a decline as that of the last two weeks has
left outstanding an enormous short interest.
The- lack of aggressive Initiative on the long
side against this Interest waa the cause of
tinessiness as to the future of the market.
There was Inevitable reselling also of stocks
which had been purchased yesterday by bank
ing Interests only for the purpose of support
ing the market. From time to time there
was an outburst of selling In one stock or
another which caused a renewal of liquida
tion. Buying for support was forthcoming
and the market was kept from disorder at any
time. But the buying promptly subsided
when price? moved upward again and gave
no encouragement to professional operators
to pursue the movement.
The call money market was appreciably
eapier than yesterday, as would follow natur
ally from the violent liquidation effected.
Additional gold was secured for import, and
the outward movement for San Francisco
continued, the former movement heavily out
balancing the latter. The advance in the
Bank of England rate was not unexpected,
and was a natural consequence of the contin
ued demand on Its gold supply for New York
account, the statement of the weekly condi
tion of the bank showing a percentage of re
serve to liabilities reduced to 38.78 per cent.
The Bank of France als showed a decline
in its gold holdings of fl?00.000. Discounts
were firm both in London and Parts. Ex
change moved In favor of London at all
points. It was not believed, however, that
the movement of gold to New York will be
The report of the Standard Oil Inquiry and
the President's message, 'which Is expected
to accompany It, were subjects of apprehen
sion, forming a motive either lor selling
stocks or refraining from buying. It was a
general expectation that the assembling of
the mineworkers at Scranton would result in
the declaration of an anthracite strike. The
special weakness of Amalgamated Copper was
in connection with the importance attached to
the forthcoming Standard OH Inquiry, on ac
count of the Standard Oil influence and con
trol of the Amalgamated Company. That
stock's 3 -point break decided the weak tone
of the market's closing.
Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par val
ue, $2,265,000. United States bonds were all
unchanged on call.

MONEY MARKET OVERTAXED
SAX FRANCISCO FIRE COMES AT
BAD TIME FOR IT.
No Prospect of Low Rates for the
Coming Summer or Until After
the Crop Movement.
Writing of the effect bf the San' Fraiici5o
Are in the financial world Henry Clews, of
Nw York, says: - -
The stock market begin to feel the San
Francisco atsaeter more keenly than at first
anticipated. Following the ftrt shock thrs
was a natural bracing together for resisting
Its consequences, but as the appalling extent
of the calamity became more generally known
values In a highly -inflated market gradually
began to yield. It Is now estimated by good
authorities that the total -destruction of prop
erty will approximate about 300.000.000.
Probably not more than half this amount, or
$150,000,000, will be covered by insurance; and
of the losses which will have to be paid by
the- insurance companies more than half of
that sum. about $70,000,000. or $tt0.000.000,
will fall upon American companies, the bal
ance being sustained by foreign concerns.
Added; to the actual destruction of property
will be the disorganization and loss of busi
ness for weeks and months to come; so that
it Is yet impossible to calculate the real dam
age to trade and-industry resulting from the
By no process of intellectual Juggling can
such a wholesale destruction of property be
turned into a bull argument. The loss Is actu
al and tremendous, and must exert a depress
ing effect which however widely distributed
will have to be endured. So far as Wall
street is concerned Its chief influence will be
felt In the money market, which has been
overtaxed by numerous insistent demands.
High-priced stocks and high rates for money
are utterly incompatible. Since there Is lit
tle prospect of cheap money for some time
to come, it is inevitable that readjustment
must be effected through liquidation and lower
prices for securities. Many of our railroads
which have Important Improvements already
under way. are. in urgent need of funds. A
few of the shrewder corporations have al
ready provided for themselves in advance,
but there are others which are not so pre
pared and must come into the money market
upon the best terms which they can secure.
In this connection the reappearance of short
term railroad notes Is a significant indica
tion of monetary conditions. This device has
not been resorted to since 1903. when a simi
lar stringency In the money market caused
a decided reaction in stock. Further bor
rowings are to be expected from railroad cor
porations, so that accompanied with regular
trade demands, which are heavy, and the un
usual real estate speculation, there 1b no
chance for low money rates during the com
ing Summer or until after the crop movement
has been financed. Prospects for continued
gold imports are not encouraging, although
an added $4,000,000 has just been engaged,
and the monetary situation has been further
relieved by the efforts of Secretary Shaw to
aid the banks. In case of emergency some
help might be obtained from London or Paris,
the great foreign banks being in better por
tion than might have been expected consider
ing recent heavy demands. As previously
stated, the necessities arising from the San
Francisco fire come at an unfortunate time
for the local money market. Insurance losses
will b paid gradually and partly from the
surplus funds already in bank. It will be im
possible, however", for American , Insurance
companies to meet these unusual losses en
tirely by borrowing. Their surplus funds have
been invested generally in high-grade securi
ties, some of which will of necessity be for
sale later on. If not now; especially as under
present conditions It might be better financing
to sell high-priced stocks before the decline
than to borrow money at 5 per cent for pay
ing losses. Irf a rising market it would, of
course, be better policy to retain securities
and borrow cash for payments.
WILL NOT MEET HERRERA
Venezuelan President Insults Co
lombia, and They May Fight.
WASHINGTON, May 3. Colombia and
Venezuela are more estranged than ever
before as a result of the refusal of Vice
President Gomez, of Venezuela, to receive
Dr. Herrera. the Minister who went to
Caracas three weeks aso to perfect a
treaty with Venezuela for the settlement
of disputes concerning the navigation- of
rivers flowing through the two countries,
and concerning commerce passing over the
War ie being freely talked of in South
American diplomatic circles.
The insult to Colombia is regarded by
some of the diplomats here as one such
as cannot be overlooked, especially since
this Is the second time the Castro gov
ernment has refused to receive a repre
sentative of Colombia. .
Just a year ago Lucas Caballo went
from Colombia to Caracas. There were
repeated delays as to his reception, and
finally the Venezuelan government re
fused to recognize him officially.
At that time President Castro insisted
that Colombia had failed to expel Ven
ezuelan political refugees, but the excuse
was not regarded as a valid one.
Later an envoy from Colombia went to
Venezuela, and last December protocols
were signed for resumption of diplomatic
relations between the two countries, and
for the framing of a treaty settling the
navigation and frontier questions.
In accordance with these protocols. Dr.
Herrera was sent to Caracas to perfect
Dispatches from Mr. Russell, the Ameri
can Minister in Venezuela, say Vice-President
Gomez refused to receive Dr. Her
rera officially, and said it would not be
possible to do so until the treaty had been
Latin-American diplomats are at a loss
to know Just how the Castro government
expects the treaty to be perfected, and
signed if the Venezuelan government re
fuses to receive the man empowered to
act for Colombia.
It is through the good offices of the
American Minister, Mr. Russell, that the
protocols looking to a settlement of 1!
differences were framed, and It is sug
gsted that what is termed the "slap at
Colombia" is an Indirect thrust at the
