A firm market for rice with an advancing
tendency la reported by Jobbers. The East
ern markets holdi firmly with a moderate
advance made In acme Japan grades. Hon
duras rice , Is generally In small supply. The
trenuthf nlnn factor In the market Is the
poor report that comes from the growing dis
tricts. The new crop In some sections en
countered Injury from low temperature that
has neceaMtatedi more or lew replanting. Lack
of rain In the Southwest is aLso an adverse
factor. Added to this Is an Improved de
mand in the Eastern markets and wronger
foreign markets, according to the latest
cables. In their latest report of the rice
market Dan Talmage'a Sons Company says:
"There has been a good movement during
the week. Stocks are fairly well assorted
with no overplus of any particular grade, so
that matching of previous lots Is attended
with sufficient difficulty to give zest to the
pursuit. Prices are well sustained and are
mora regular than a few weeks ago. Advices
'from the South note quiet conditions on the
Atlantic Coast. At New Orleans the market
Is strong with limited turnout from the mills.
In the Interior southwest Louisiana and
Texas there has been a good demand, with
prices on Japans and fancy grades of Hon
duras firmly held. Cables and correspondence
from abroad note firm markets on all styles.
"Talmage reports the Louisiana crop move
ment to date: Receipts, rough, 1,479,30
sacks; last year. S.124.000 sacks. Sales,
cleaned (estimated), 1.&13.3S3 pockets; last
year, 1,723,832 pockets.
READY TO BUY WOOL.
Eastern Dealers Will Purchase, When They
Think Prices Are Right.
Conditions In the Eastern wool trade are
thus reviewed by the Boston Commercial Bui
letin of June 2:
i no maraei may ne truthfully termed a
rather dull one; with but little Interest being
shown by manufacturers. Some few sales of
onds and ends for "piecing out." are reported
out tne talriy well supplied condition of
most mills renders them, for the moment.
. inoepennent or further purchasing. Among
me transfers are small lots of Australian and
Arpenwne siock, sample bags of new ter
ritory and limited quantities of pulled and
Despite the lack of activity, and admit
ting the present dullnesw, prices are being
consistently maintained on the current basis.
With wools on this market, the cheapest in
the world, there Is no reason why the sit
uation should be otherwise. Although some
merchants claim that manufacturers will
shortly be obliged to make additional our-
chases of raw material, othera say that the
mule are sufficiently supplied to render
resumption of active buying necessary until
the new clip is here in volume. Before In
creased business will be inaugurated, the
lightweight goods situation will have to be
more developed, end Its requirements learned.
Iealera are ready to purchase the lloJ clip
in its entirety when prices are reduced to
level at wnicn tne wool can be handled at a
profit and not at a loss. On the other hand
the woolgrower Is encouraged in believing
that his clip Is worth nearly what he asks
by the continued purchasing, for prices are
practically unchanged from the basis on
which contracts were made lain Fall. Wi!le,
as stated above, the new clip Is still being
bought, the majority of the large operators
are not active. A year ago the different
wools, of which many had been previously
contracted, were arriving here quite freely.
but owing to the refusal of the wool mer
chants to purchase extensively so far this
season, the arrivals are considerably less
than In 11)06.
CABBAGE FROM SACRAMENTO.
Teies the Place of the Southern California
Los Angeles cabbage is practically out of
market now, and Its place will be taken by
Sacramento cabbage, a car of which ar
rived last night. A car of Stockton onions
was received yesterday, and another will
be in today. Some lines of small vegetables,
beans especially, are very scarce.
Old potatoes have ceased to be a factor
In the market. It Is possible that a few
cars of fancy potatoes may yet be sent to
California, but the shipping season has, to
all intents and purposes, closed. A large
quantity of low-grade potatoes remain in
growers- hands, and theee may be fed to
begs. New potatoes are arriving more freely
from California and sell readily. A small
shipment of new Oregon potatoes of an early
variety made their appearance yesterday.
They sold very low for the first of the sea
son, $1.25 a sack, which W. H. McCorquo
dale. the seller, attributed to their unripe
xveceipts ot strawoeariea were light on
Front street, but a good supply reached the
market. The Jobbing demand was only fair.
Prices generally were from $1.60 to $1.75 a
crate. Peaches are now arriving regularly
and are quoted at $1.75 a box.
CHICKENS PELL WELL.
Active Local Demand for Eggs Butter
There was a good demand for poultry yes
terday, and as receipts were nxierate,
chickens sold at firm prices. Ducks, alone,
were not In request and the few coops that
The egg market was active with practically
all the business done at 20 cents. There are
few or no shipping orders now, but the local
consumption is heavy and arrivals are quick
ly cieaned up.
The butter market Is without new feature.
The city creamery product ,1s going off fairly
well and the surplus, as has been the case
for some time past, goes Into storage. Prices
are generally maintained on Front street, but
w-hen stocks accumulate, shading is resorted
v to. Country store butter Is firm on a good
WTXE PRICES HIGHER.
harn Advance Due to Loss of Stocks at
San Francisco. .
The prices of all kinds of wines have been
rapidly going up since the San Francisco dis
aster. The quantity of wine destroyed in that
t-.lty Is estimated around 10,000,000 gallons. The
price of red wines has been advanced 10
cents per gallon. The price of -white wines
has been advanced 15 cents per gallon, and
the price of sweet wines. Ports and Sherries,
etc., has been advanced from 5 to 8 cents
per gallon. This small advance In sweet
wines Is due to the situation and competi
tion In the sweet wine trade, and to the
fact that most of the stocks of sweet wines
were held outside of San Francisco, and
therefore were not destroyed by the fire.
There Is no doubt that the increased prices
for wine will hold during the rest of this
year. If the supply of wine now on hand
la as short as is estimated, the demand will
keep up prices until after the next vintage.

JUMP IN WHEAT
July Option Takes Two-Cent
Rise at Chicago.
STRONG SHORT DEMAND
Reports of Serious Damage to the
Growing, Crop " Influence the
Market Black Rust Ap
pears In Texas.
CHICAGO. June 7. Sentiment in the wheat
pit was extremely bullish all day. and there
was a strong demand from shorts and com
mission houses. The continuance of the wet
weather in the Northwest was chiefly re
sponsible for the strength andi activity of the
market. Early In the day, the market was
influenced somewhat by the strength of corn
and oats, but later damage reports made the
market independently strong. Advices were
received that damage was caused by black
rust in the wheat fields of Texas and much
damage by drought in Kansas and Nebraska.
Higher prices for wheat that so Increased the
bullish sentiment at Liverpool, also increased
the bullish sentiment in the local market. At
times, offerings were liberal, local longs tak
ing advantage of the situation -to secure
profits, but the demand was so urgent that
prices continued to advance steadily. July
opened a shade to V4c higher, at 81Vi
Slc, advanced to &fVic, and closed strong
at lT(2c higher, at 83c.
Trading in the corn pit was active and the
market was strong. The market closed at
the highest point of the day. July opened H
Vic higher, at 50Vic to 50GOc, ad
vanced to 51V4c, and closed lVilVic higher,
Unusual activity prevailed in the oats pit,
and the market was exceptionally strong. On
initial transactions, the demand by shorts
was so urgent that prices showed wide fluctu
ations, the range on the July option being
lc on the opening quotations. The chief
cause for the urgent buying was numerous
reports of damage by drought to the new
crop. An advance of lc a bushel In the
price of cash oats stimulated the demand
for options. Liberal profit-taking caused some
recessions in prices, but the market closed
strong. July opened Vdc to IVic higher, at
35Vi((i3ec. and closed iC higher, at 36Vic.
Provisions were strong on active buying by
commission houses and packers. Receipts of
live hogs were less than had been expected,
and shipments of hog products were very
heavy. At the close July pork was up 27 Vi

ROTATION DF DEALINGS
STOCK MARKET STILIi IN
HANDS OF PROFESSIONALS.
General Public Shows No Interest
in the Speculation Gold Ex
ports Are Probable.
NEW YORK. June T. Operations by a
professional organization were still clearly
discernible In the stock market today and
made up the largest proportion of the total
dealings. The character of the trading made
itself manifest by the concentrated nature
of the orders In individual stocks and by
rotation of dealings of this kind from one
quarter of the market to another. Some of
the most prominent stocks in the list were
not brought Into the movement at all and
the "market showed no comprehensive move
ment at any time. The stocks which be
came newly in favor late in the day are
the ones generally that ended, nearest the
top level, while the earlier favorites were
relegated to a less conspicuous place or car
ried backward by the process ot realization
of profits. The result ef the day's profes
sional efforts to advance prices was regard
ed by its authofs with contentment, so far
as could be judged from their persistence in
the attempt and their expressed confidence
in the success of the campaign In bringing
ultimately a public demand to provide a
medium for realizing profits. Commission
houses continue to complain of the absence
of any such public demand and a dearth
of orders for execution In the market.
The movements of Individual stocks gen
erally had some Item of gossip to accom
pany them, but these lacked official con
firmation, and In some cases were clearly
based on surmise. St. Paul was still bought
on the belief In coming stock subscription
rights, and the known approach of a new
issue of New York Central stock already au
thorized made the same explanation avail
able for the movement In that stock. Union
Pacific was the subject of rumors of a dis
tribution on Southern Pacific, from which it
would benefit by its large holdings. Illi
nois Central was affected by a belief In a
dispute for control of the property. Reading
and Amalgamated Copper moved under the
influence of oft-repeated rumors and infer
ences. San Francisco sent another important con
signment of cash to New York by tele
graphic transfer through Sub-Treasury facil
ities and foreign exchange rates made fur
ther progress toward the gold export point,
still some distance away, however. Bankers
admit that with the continued flow of money
to this center and easing of Interest rates,
some of the recent large Imports of gold are
likely to be returned whence they came. The
Bank of England did not meet the expec
tation that it would reduce its official dis
count rate and the report of conditions suf
ficiently explained why it did not. Sterllne
exchange at Paris and Berlin also moved
against London and the Paris market was
further disturbed by the prospect of an en
actment of an Income tax law.
The further rise In wheat was associated
with reports of bad weather conditions. The
price of silver suffered a further violent re
action from its- recent extreme rise, thus
demonstrating that the rise was due to an
overbought condition of the market. The
realizing, which was more or less In evi
dence all day, became more pronounced at
the close ol .the day. and the closing was
