There are no new developments In the hop
market. So far as can be learned, no orders
are being held by dealers nor are any lots
being offered on the open market. It is said
that some of the speculators who bought on
the late flurry would be willing to sell the
hops for what they paid for them or lera,
but there does not appear to be any de
mand for the goods. The Eastern market
is dragging, as there Is no inquiry from
brewers, but the undertone of the New York
market Is firm in view of the light stocks
and reports of crop damage in that state.
On the coast everything is still favorable.
AH reports from Europe of crop conditions
are being received with close interest. The
latest advices show no particular change. The
Kentish Observer or May 24 said:
Tying 1 now general In all districts. Growth
has been retarded by the cold weather of
the paat week, and the young shoots present
a rather unhealthy appearance In some
grounds. There is a lot of flea at places,
and wire worm is also troublesome. The
rhowers of the lat few days have been bene
ficial, but a spell of warm weather is great
The Observer prints the following reports
From Cattley, Gridley & Co., London A
steady demand for useful EngliBh hops con
tinues at late values, and also a strong in
quiry for choice Pacifies. These latter, how
ever, are scarcely to be found! on this mar
ket, and the advance in value that has taken
place on the other side prevents exports for
general trade. . The plantations in England
and on the Continent are making slow prog
ress, owing to the continued low temperature.
From Exchange & Hop Warehouse, Lon
don There had been a better demand during
the week, but few sales have taken place,
owing to the limited offers. Tying in the
plantation ts in progress, but the plant is
somewhat backward, owing to the, cold weath
er experienced lately.
From Manger & Henley, London The in
quiry continues for good sound copper grades,
which are scarce. Buyers begin to find It
no easy tak to meet with hops suitable for
their requirements. Prices remain firm with
a hardening tendency.
From J. H. Meredith & Co., Worcester
Owing to coldi nights, and absence of sun
shine, the young plant grows slowly, and in
many grounds tying has not yet commenced.
From Adolf Heller, PraRue During last
week rather an active inquiry prevailed on
the Saas hop market for both home and
German breweries. This last fact proves
what intrnlsic value the Saaz hops contain,
when German breweries do not hesitate to
acquire them in spite of the higher duty, as
well as freight and expenses. Prices have
attain Improved 3 to 4 kronen, and stocks have
become very small. Although the weather
was very genial, neither in Bohemia nor in
Germany the hop plant made an adequate
progress in growth, but is sound and strong
and free of vermin.
The WatervlUe Times of June 1 thus re
ported conditions In New York. State:
There is nothing new to say of hop condi
tions and there have been no transactions.
The cold weather has retarded the growth
so that the crop is later than usual. The sit
uation seems to bo that the newer and best
yards are looking well and promise a good
yield, while the older and worn-out yards do
not promise a very large crop.
A meeting of the Willamette Valley Hop
growers' Association will be held at Wood
burn on June 20 for the purpose of electing
a president In place of John Kennedy, de
ceased, and for such other business as may
be brought up relative to sending delegates
to a general convention of hopgrowers, which
is being arranged to be held in Portland
The Wood burn Independent has started an
agitation foe a combine of Oregon hopgrow
ers and In a recent it? sua says:
It does not require columns nor many words
to warn the hopgrowers of Oregon that this
year and the sooner the better they must
combine for their own protection. Every
hopgrower of Orejron should see by now that
he is vitally interested and that he must
enter into a purchasing and selling combine
or he is liable to come out at the little end
of the horn. There is no guesswork and
trusting to luck this year. The- near future
has been opened up sufficiently for him to
see clearly and behold a smash in prices If
he does not pool this year's crop. The com
bine, if backed by all, would prove a potent
factor in reducing the price of necessary bur
lap, twine, sulphur, etc., and would make a
living figure to the grower for the product.
Hut there would be no use in only a portion
or the growers going Into such a combine
and others standing aloof. All must unhesi
tatingly go into it or the conditions this
year will be worse than last. It rests with
the growers to the man. It Is their own in
terests that are concerned, and surely they
have had enough experience to have their
eyes, fully opened by this time and have
tense enough t6 know that in lftOtt they must
work together that this year particularly In
unity there Is strength. Timidity in this in
stance would be reckless waste. Temerity Is
an absolute necessity or many will go to the
wall. It la well la some cases to speak
BANANAS ARRIVE GREEN.
More rantclmipc Received From Southern
C'al If ornlav Logan Berries on Sale.
Four cars of bananas arrived yesterday and
all proved to be green. Three crates of
cantaloupes were received from Brawley and
some are promised from Coachella today. Yes
terday's lot brought $4.50 for pony crates
and $12 for specials. The melons were ripe
and yellow, A few crates of Logan berries
came in and sold at $1.50. Strawberries
were scarce on the street, but there were
big arrivals at the market, most sales being
at $1.25 a crate. California cherries were
received In better order and sold well at $1
125. Apricots were quoted at $1.75ig2.
Peas and beans were very plentiful yester
day, after several days of scarcity, but all
the best offerings were taken up readily. A
lot of poor Oregon peas of the Alaska va
riety were offered, but they were not wanted
at any price. Telephones were In demand. A
quantity of green corn was received from
Winters, Cal., and sold at 47 H cents a dozen.
A car of Sacramento cabbage is due today,
also ft csr of mixed small vegetables.
The tie-up of the steamer lines will have
no effect on the local produce market. Owing
to the irregularity of the service, Jobbers
have lately been getting most of their fruits
and truck by rail.
Chickens and Eggs Firm.
Receipts of poultry continue to be of only
moderate size and with a strong demand.
Prices are slightly firmer on some lines. The
absence of any Eastern frozen poultry helps
the local trade.
Eggs are active and firm at 20 cents, with
The creamery butter market Is unchanged.
City prices are nonuniform yet. Country etor
butter is firm with a good shipping demand.
Wheat Market Tinner.
The sharp advances in the Eastern grain
markets have strengthened the local wheat
market, and dealers now quote club at 73
cents and bluestem at 75 cents. Trading
locally continues quiet. There bas been some
Inquiry from California, but it will be dif
ficult to fill orders until the steamer strike
fias been settled. Foreign markets are im
proving, but the advance abroad has not been
sufficient yet to permit of export business
Plenty of Sugar Next Week.
Owing to the steamer strike, stocks of
sugar in the local market have run very low.
A large quantity, however, is being shipped
north by rail, and there will be plenty of
sugar on hand early next week.
It Is learned that the Spreckela refinery at
Salinas, which was badly damaged by the
earthquake, can be put in shape for the com
ing campaign. Repairs are now being made
as fast as possible. It is said that the cost
will probably amount to from $200,000 to $250,
Coarse Wools Quoted Lower.
Wool dealers yesterday received wires from
Boston announcing a further decline In coarse
Valley wools. Quotations were, therefore,
lowered on this grade to 22 to 23 cents.

BULLISH MISSOURI REPORT
Continued Wet "Weather In Minne
sota Is Another Strengthening
Factor Demand Is Urgent
During the Iast Hour.
CHICAGO. June 8. The Mlwouri crop re
port rendered the wheat market firm at he
opening today. Another factor that strength
ened prices was the continued wet weather
in the Red River Valley tn Minnesota. To
ward the end of the first half hour. Improved
weather conditions in the Southwest caused
free selling by local longs and commission
houses, which brought about considerable de
clines, but during the laat hour the demand
became urgent because of numerous reports
of drought in Illinois. Missouri and Kansas,
and these, supplementing the official report
from Missouri, caused a strong bullish senti
ment Just before the close. The market closed
strong, with July cents higher, at 84:4c.
The corn market was weak early In the
day, .because of lower cables and largely In
creased acceptances. Later in the day prices
rallied sharply on covering by shorts. The
close was strong and at the highest point
of the day. July, closed at olvfcc.
The Missouri crop report was extremely
bullish on oats. The market advanced more
than 2 cents In the price of the July delivery.
The close od July was lc higher, at 37c.
Provisions were easy with the exception of
July pork. This product appeared to be In
a somewhat congested condition and prices
were bid up by local packers. At the close,
July pork was TVjiglOc higher; lard was off
i'.'jC and ribs were 5 cents lower.

Present Stock Market Purely Pro
fessional Grangers Affected by
Course, of Wheat Prices.
NEW YORK. June t. The professional
limitations of ths present stock market were
still manifest today. In fact, the slight evi
dence of small commission-house buying,
which -was reported yesterday and which
aroused hopes that the professional campaign
was meeting Its first success In attracting
outside Interest, was no longer perceptible
today. The aggregate of the sales under
went a decided shrinkage.
The character of the market was not ma
terially changed from recently prevailing con
dition Fewer stocks were picked for a
demonstration to attract attention by large
dealings and rapid advances. Much attention
was paid to the action of the grain mar
kets and the market weakened quite generally
during the first hour on this account. A bet
ter tons developed when wheat was found to
be declining, but stocks turned downwards
again later in the day. Some points of spe
cial strength among ths grangers were due
to reports of good crop conditions along those,
lines. Atchison was a notable example.
There was . some strength in the Gould
group on account of the settlement of the
Wabash debenture "B" bondholders and re
ports ot a large consolidated bond lssua In
prospect. The" sharp advance In Delaware
& Hudson was accompanied by active deal
ings In , the convertible bonds on the curb
and application was made to list the bonds at
the stock exchange.
The week's currency movement did not In
dicate a large change In cash reserves of
the banks on the actual movement, but the
easy tone of call money Indicated a strong
bank statement. The loss reported on sub
Treasury operations of $639,000 includes re
turn of Government funds advanced to the
banks against gold imports to an amount
larger than that, and as the gold has ar
rived, this loss Is offset. A small gain in the
express movement with the Interior Is also
Indicated. Gains made late last week fig
ured but slightly In . the showing of aver
ages upon which the last bank statement was
made up, and the discrepancy is expected to
be rectified in tomorrow's statement.
A slightly firmer tone was reported for
time money today, due to decrease in amounts
of offerings. The sterling exchange market
continued to advance In response to the earlier
money conditions and demand for remit
tance against maturing finance bills was said
to be an Important factor in that market.
Attention was given to published expressions
by a prominent banking official in a tone
of warning against an assumption of security
against money stringency beyond the Im
mediate future and pointing to the require
ments still unmet for payment of San Fran
cisco Insurance losses and the .liquidation of
assets yet to be effected on that account.
The continuance of the injunction against
the enforcement of ths 80-cent gas law, pend
ing a decision In the suit to test Its constitu
tionality, caused feverish fluctuations Jn Con
solidated Gas. The closing was easy .
Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par
value, $4,250,000. United States old 4s

HEAVY-TRADE N MAY
Commodity Prices Reach
Highest Point in 20 Years.
RAILWAY EARNINGS GROW
Weakest Feature of Cotton Goods
Industry Is Entire Absence of
Export Demand China
Out of Market.
NEW. YORK, June 8. R. G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trad tomorrow will say:
On the whole, the week's results were en
couraging, and monthly reports for May show
splendid gains over last year's figures. Prices
of commodities rose to the highest point in
20 years, $106,794 on June 1, 'comparing with
$106,059 a month previous and $98,799 a year
ago. Railway earnings In May were 11.2
per cent heavier than In 1905, and foreign
commerce at this port for the last week
showed a gain of $1,346,180 in exports and a
loss of $11,508 In Imports, as compared with
the corresponding week last year.
The weakest feature of the cotton goods In
dustry at the present time Is the utter ab
sence of export demand. China is out of
the market, and a heavy accumulation of
goods Is noted at Shanghai, while the out
look for their absorption is far from promis
ing. Footwear factories receive only a fair
volume of new Fall business. Hides are nom
inally unchanged, yet an easier tone is in
Failures this week in the United States are
206, against 174 last week,' 188 the preceding
week, and 216 the corresponding week last
year. Failures In Canada number 18, against
13 last year, 8 the preceding week and 20
GENERAL BUSINESS UN' US DALLY GOOD
Fall Order Are of Good Volume Canned
Meat Trade Poor.
NEW YORK, June 8. Bradstreet's tomor
row will say:
Jobbing and wholesale lines are commenc
ing to reflect the usual seasonal quietness.
Nevertheless, business Is more active than is
customary at this season, and Fall orders for
drygoods, clothing, shoes and inter-related lines
are of very good volume. As a whole the sit
uation Is equal to a year ago. The labor sit
uation, though disturbed at different points.
Is considerably better. A good demand for
dry goods and general supplies for San Fran
cisco, where conditions are rapidly approach
ing normal, is noted. The return flow of
money from the country Is unmistakably
large, and easier rates are expected.
Railway earnings continue very heavy, the
Increase for May being no less than 14 per
cent on roads operating outside the anthra
cite coal field. On the other hand, reports
about the meat packing Industry adversely
affect trade In that line, while high prices
tend to cause deadlocks In some lines, notably
wool and some lines of, building material.
Lower prices for yellow pine are reflected In
ease In northern soft woods and have evoked
some new business.
Business failures for the week ending June
7 number 162. against 127 last week, and 194
In the like week of 1905. In Canada failures
for the week numbered 17, as against 19 last
week, and 25 . In this week a year ago.
Wheat, including flour, exports from the
United States and Canada tor the week end
ing June 7 are 3,301,007 bushels, against
2.566,739 last week and 1,476,840 this week
last year. From July 1 to date the exports
are 128,627,013 bushels, against 60,013.247 last
