The steady advance In sugar prices that has
been predicted by the wholesale grows corl-
tlnues In effect. Yesterday's rise wa a 10-
cent one. The Western Refinery lifted Its
prices to that extent. The California &
Hawaiian Company made an advance of 25
cents, but only the 10-cent rise will affect
retailers, as Jobbers sell on the bas-le of the
lowest refinery price. It to stated that the
reason the California & Hawaiian Company
quoted above the market to because It Is heav
ily oversold at the present time and Is seek
ing an opportunity to catch up with lte
order. Some of the Jobbers eee in the present
movement an Indication that the rival refiner
ies have adjusted their differences. Said a
leading sugar handler yesterday:
"The sugar war Is now a thing of the pact.
The refineries have undoubtedly come to an
agreement and normal prices are being re
stored n fact as possible. It was easily fore
seen that when the difficulty would be set
tied the market would advance fully 91 &
hundred. Half of that advance baa been made
up now and the other half will come soon."
That the retailers are satisfied prices will
continue to ascend 1 shown by the heavy
buying of sugar that Is now taking place-.

chaser was Hans C. 'Wahlberg. of this city.
There were 28 balea in the lot. Mr. Wahl
berg mates that the hops, which were of
choice quality, were bought for a prominent
Eastern house and will be taken In and shipped
Picking; was general in all parts of the
state yesterday. There were reports of mold
m some sections and where the bllxht was
fvorst growers were cutting down the vtnea
ihead of the pickers to keep the moldy hona
iut of the sound ones.
In Washington the crop was reported to be
pn bad shape north of Puyallup, but south of
there the only trouble came from lack of
llckers. -Reports from Taklma varied as to
I California growers were experiencing un
favorable weather yesterday, owing to north
erly winds, and the indications are that the
otal crop picked may not come up to the
recent estimates, which were 10 per cent
larger than those made a month ago.

Gerruis Hops Are Clean.
GERVA1S. Or., Sept. 17. (Special.) Hop
picking was general in this section yesterday,
despite the fact that it was Sunday. Little
or no damage has been done to the crop by
the late rain storm. Very few pickers have
left the yards and there is every Indication
that the entire crop will be saved. Picking
Is about half over in this section. Growers
are figuring on three-fourths of a crop that
will be of an average quality. There Is no
Indication of lice or mold and the probabili
ties are the picking will be concluded before
any mold can develop.

FRUIT MARKET ACTIVE.
-Four Cars of Bananas Arrive, Some of Them
An active business was transacted in the
fruit line yesterday. The day's receipts in
cluded four cars of bananas, some of them
very ripe; one car of Salway peaches, one of
Valencia oranges, the last of the season, and
one of sweet potatoes. The Salways cleaned
up at SO to 86 cents. Receipts of Oregon
peaches were somewhat larger than usual and
the best brought $1. Concord grapes were
quoted at 27V, to 30 cents a basket. Prices
on other fruits were unchanged.
Hothouse lettuce was In good supply and
brought 1.25 to (1.50. There was no change
In the potato or onion situation.
Receipts of Veal Larger.
Receipts of dressed veal were larger than
oeual yesterday, but the arrivals were worked
off without much difficulty. Not much dressed
pork Is coming in now, but the market haa an
easier tendency In sympathy with the weak
ness In live hogs.
BUTTER SUPPLIES IOW.
Some Creamerymen Would Like to Sea the
The local scarcity of butter and the firm
position of the market leads some creamery
men to believe that an advance over the 80
cent mark would be Justified. The cream sup
ply is very short and the make of the city
factories is cleaned up each day. Stocks on
FTont street are also low. Those opposed to
an advance argue that the rains will soon
provide more feed for the herds and that the
cessation of harvest operations will likewise
result In larger shipments of outside butter
to this market In the near fntnre.
The egg market was slow yesterday and
prices were unchanged.
Very few coops of poultry came In and
they were ' quickly disposed of at former
Prunes In This Section Not Much Hurt.
Reports received from p run eg rowers in
Clark County, Washington, and In the vicinity
of Portland are that the fruit was not jso
badly Injured by the rain as was the case, at
various points up the Willamette Valley. Some
damage was done, but the camples that have
been sent In are considered very good. The
slight injury In this section Is attributed to
the fact that the rain generally fell in show
ers, while at some places in the prune sec
tions up the valley the fall was much harder.
Rain Scatters the Pruneplckers.
ROSEBURQ. Or., Sept. 17. (Special.) The
rains that prevailed last week have ceased
and the sun is shining brightly. This will
enable the resumption of hop and pruneplck
lng. No material damage is so far reported
to the hop crop, but to the prune crop there
Is considerable damage. During the rain the
have ripened rapidly and have cracked open
badly, all of which damages them severely.
With the coming of the rain the picking
of the prunes was Just commenolng, and now
the pickers have scattered and it will be
much more difficult to secure pickers, and it
is feared the greater Injury will be from this

BURSTS OF BUYING
Speculation Is Furious in the
FAVORITES ARE MANY
First One Issue Then Another Taken
Up for Exploitation Prosper
ous Reports From the)
NEW YORK. Sept. 17. The speculative
choice of favorites went racing through the
list of stocks usually prominent in the mar
ket today and exploited the Individual
stocks thus selected for what they could be
made to yield in the way of a price move
ment. The furious activity with which the
sudden bursts of buying distinguished these
stocks was no less astonishing than their
sudden lapse Into dullness when operations
turned to the next choice on the selected
list. As the various stocks were left behind
by the tide of the most active trading, they
were Inclined to sag back in price" around
the influence of the "roftt-taklng sales. Some
of the strongest and most active stocks of
the early dealings lost all their gains sub
sequently those thret Immediately followed
In the movement lost part and the latest
comers Into demand conserved the best
part of the gains. Individual transactions
In separate stocks were very large and gave
the Impression of orders executed from one
source -or under concerted operations.
Purely speculative operations by room
traders In following these movements were
on an enormous scale and without any pre
tense of information to base the buying on.
Blocks of thousands of shares were bought
on the floor and often quickly sold at a
slight advance for no other motive than
that they looked good for a movement. Some
of the day's conspicuous movements were
advertised beforehand and were subject of
widely-circulated tips before the market
opened. Accumulation of buying orders over
the week end as a result of last week's In
fluences were on a moderate scale.
The usual weekly summing up of Indus
trial and business conditions was convincing
of the flood tide of prosperous activity in
every branch. The car movement of all
kinds of merchandise over all lines was re
ported to be limited only by the available
equipment facilities and railroad officials
expressed but one apprehension and that of
car famine and coming freight congestion
from Insufficiency of means to take care of
freight offerings. The railway equipment
stocks responded early to this showing of
conditions. Amalgamated Copper responded
to the showing of general prosperity in the
copper trade and to specific rumors of an
intended Increase in the dividend on Ana
conda and on its own stock.
The speculative element was disposed to
assume that the Saturday bank statement
showed that the crisis In the money market
had been passed and an obstacle thus re
moved to the due reflection in the securities
market of the extraordinary prosperity pre
vailing. First loans on call were made at
below 5 per cent, compared with Friday's
9 per cent rate, and this served to confirm
speculative confidence. The later rise in
the call money rate to 10 per cent had some
thing to do with the reactionary tendency
of the later stock market, although the
palpable speculative exploitation of stocks
that was going on and the manner In which
different issues were thrown aside as fast as
their possibilities were exhausted, - excited
some uneasiness. The hardening of the
money rate was attributed to the arrange
ments making for a payment of an install
ment of subscriptions to Baltimore & Ohio
new stock which called tor something like
There were some small additional gold en
gagements In London announced and in
coming steamers brought several millions
engaged abroad too soon to get the benefit
of the treasury aid measure and-which,
therefore, became newly available to New
York bank reserves with their arrival. There
were further remittances from here to San
Francisco througn the Sub-Treasury. Read
ing, Pennsylvania, the Harrlman Pacific and
Amalgamated Copper absorbed a large pro
portion of the day's dealings. The closing
was weak and not jnuch of the day's gains
Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par

Xews of Day Is Mostly of a Bullish
Mature Russian Shipments Are
Small Estimated Indiana
Yield Below Reports.
CHICAGO, Sept. 17. Because of rains in
the Northwest and South, the wheat market
opened slightly higher. Commission houses
were good buyers, but pit-traders commenced
selling at once and continued offering wheat
until the end of the session. The steady
pounding finally had Its effect. The weakness
in the coarse grains was alro against the bulls
and there was much selling for the profits,
the advance In prices having been steady for
several days. Cables were up d on firmer
American offers and smaller shipments to the
United Kingdom. The shipments from Ruesla
and ports on the Danube were about onc-hal
the amount for the same day last year. Other
bullish news was contained In the Indiana
crop report, which showed a wheat yield of
11,000,000 less than that of the Government
crop report. Cash markets were strong. De
cember wheat opened f1I4c higher at 73
73c. sold between 72372ic and Tio and
closed easy at 72Si.72c, to c lower.
The com market was heavy all day. Local
receipts were heavy and general rains through
out the corn belt also weakened prices. The
local cash market declined tt'S'ic. Cables
were d lower. The December option opened
-c to c lower at 4242c. sold
between 41c and 42c and closed easy at
41S42c, to "fee below the close of Satur
day. The oats market was weak during the
greater part of the day, being strongly affect
ed by the slump In corn. The local cash
market, however, held firm and later In the
day all of the early loss was recovered and
the market closed steady and c higher. De
cember opened unchanged at 32c, sold be
tween 32 and 32c and closed at 82c.
There was no particular feature to the pro
visions market and the list ruled fairly steady.
Hogs were steady and the bulls were encour
aged by the fact that the run seems to be
growing lighter. The domestic cash demand
was good. At the close, January pork was
