THE MORNIIfG OREGOMAN, THUKSDAY, SOVEMBER 8, 1906.
Portland Trade Will Depend on
..Consignments This Year.
POOR LUCK IN SPECULATING
Big Handlers Taught a Severe Les
son Last Year Stocks Bought
Wore Not Delivered Ibices
Will Be Good.
POULTRY Local Jobbers to handla
Thanksgiving turkeys on coneigmment.
WHEAT Market operations ham
pered by lack of cars.
HOPS Buying of Oregons elower.
FRUIT Bananas coming: by North
The Portland wholesale poultry trade will
not be buyers of turkeys to any largo ex
tent In the coming Thanksfftving market.
The supplies they will handle, and the
quantity will be immense, wlU have to be
consigned to them. Some of the dealers
may buy a few to 'be Buro of filling their
pressing orders, but the majority say they
will buy none at all. They will handle all
lhat are consigned to them on the basis
of the ruling market price, but as for spec
ulating In turkeys, they have had all they
want of that In the paat.
For several years the trade has been hit
pretty hard on the Thanksgiving turkey
deal. It has not been so much the question
of price with them, though prices have not
always been good, as It has been the non
f ulfllmrnt of promises made by shippers,
in feveral cases Jobbers who had bought
largo numbers of turkeys up the country
ft n- Uolhcry at Thanksgiving have been
thrown ih.wn at the last moment. All kinds
of i-xcuR'H have been given by shippers for
ihrir failure to deliver goods contracted for.
The ro. 1 1 reason In nearly every case has
1 ern that some other buyer outbid the Port
land t'toaler after the deal was closed, and
of coins- got the turkeys.
The largiat handlers of this city have for
i.evcral seasons been gradually withdrawing
from the field as buyers outright of tur
ke a. Those, who handled birds last year
utty on consignment found this plan far
more satisfactory. There has been no con
cert "d agreement on the part of the Port
land trade to adopt this policy, hut nearly
all the large wholesale dealers say they
will do m buying.
Portland will not suffer for turkeys, cither
aL Thanksgiving or Christmas, because of
this chnnge in the method of business. Sup
plies in the country are large, according to
all reports received, and Portland will bo
the principal market for everything raised
t his ide of Roseburg. California can be
counted upon to draw its usual supply from
t he Southern districts. So far as can be
learned there will be no Eastern chilled
turkeys sold here by the jobbing trade,
Ihnugli at least three cars have already been
contracted for In the East for delivery at
Everything points to a local consumption
of turkeys larger than at last Thanksgiving
and this Is almost certain to mean good
prices. Dealers can, .of course, make no
accurate forecast of the coming market, but
most of them believe prices will be as good
as last year. As is always the case, the
man who sends in the best turkeys gets
the best price. Poor stuff Is hard to dis
pose of at any time, and at Thanksgiving
and Christmas It should be kept off the
market. When sent In it only means a loss
to all concerned.
Another thing that the consignors of tur
keys should remember is that the best re
sults cannot bo obtained with goods deliv
ered In the market at the last moment.
HOP MARKET IS NOT SO ACTIVE.
Less Business Pone Than on the First Two
Days of the Week.
The hop market was slower yesterday,
ater the big business done on the first two
days of the week. The news of Monday's
nd Tuesday's activity became pretty gen
erally known throughout the country and
buyers who tried to operate found growers
l"ss disposed to sell than was the case last
week. No operations by the Salem dealers
were reported except the purchase of two
small lots on the west side by Lachmund
W. J. Bishop, of this city, secured over
300 bales, including the W. A. Heltzel lot of
80 bales at Forest Grove at 13 cents; 75
bales from Charles O. Tongue, of Brooks,
at 14 cents; 81 bales from T. A. Killen. of
Banks, at 13H cents; the Rldder lot of 55
bales at 14 cents and the Wall lot of 12
bales at 12 cents, both at Dundee, and 67
bales from Portland dealers at 1 to 13 V
John Carmlchael's buying on Tuesday, it
was said In the local market, amounted to
about 1100 bales. In addition to the lot
printed yesterday, it was reported he also
bought S6 bales from Joe Graham, of Butte
ville; 90 baleB from Breeze Gibson, of Sa
lem, and the Savage lot at Salem. Lach
mund & Pincus' purchases the same day
totalled 000 bales. Among the other lots
bought by this firm was one of 190 bales
at HUlsboro at 13 H cents.
WHEAT BUYERS TO STOP OPERATIONS.
Cnablo to Get to Tidewater Grain Purchased
Wheat buying for this market is on a
very limited scale. Exporters and millers
are still operating in the country, but are
only taking on small Quantities, They are
hampered by the lack of cars, which is be
coming a serious matter with them. The
railroad companies promise to do what they
can for the shippers, but these promises
do not move the wheat to tidewater.
A great Quantity of grain has been bought
up and is now stored In interior warehouses,
and the ships on which it Is to go forward
are waiting in port. Other vessels are abou
due. thy cargoes of which have been pur
chased, but are still far inland. The water
front strike was bad enough as an embargo
on shipping, but the car shortage beats it
a long way. Wheat buyers declare they
will be compelled to suspend operations en
tirely In a very short time unless the rail
road companies give them some relief.
One reason for the scarcity of rolling
stock on the O. R. & N. lines is said to be
the large number of cars that were sent Into
California. These wero dispatched south
ward with lumber, prunes, hops and other
freight originating in this territory and thus
materially relieved the Southern Pacific sit
uation, but the O. K. & N. has been unable
to got them back and the wheat men are the
ClearlnRS of the leading rltles of the North
west yesterday were as follows:
Banana by the Northern XJne.
City trade In fruits and vegetables was
alow ynterday, but a good country business
was done. There woro no heavy arrivals
during the day. The next lot of bananas
will arflve ov?r the Northern Paclllc, owing
to the strike on the Southern Pacific.
Ovexsupply of Chickens.
Front street was overstocked with chlck-
ens yesterday and prices suffered as a con
sequence. Receipts of ducks, geese and tur
keys were also large.
The egg market was unchanged, with
fresh ranch stock quoted firm.
Butter was steady and unchanged.

Wall Street Fears Action by
Bank of England.
GOVERNORS MEET TODAY
Stock Market Dominated by Foreign
Influences Only the Hill Shares
Show Resistance to Weak
NEW YORK. Nov. 7. The speculation In
stocks proved to be of a desultory character
today In spite of the activity during the first
hour, and this was largely under the domi
nation of foreign influences. Reported appre
hension of a further advance in the Bank of
England discount rate at the weekly meeting
of the governors tomorrow was a principal
factor. There was some selling out by the
buyers of the last few days. That buying
had been due to a hope that with the election
out of the way there would be a revival of
speculative demand for stocks. There was a
sign of it this morning and the selling to
take profits aggravated the effect of the sell
ing for London account.
- The only notable resistance in the market
was in the Hill stocks, especially Northern
Pacific. The strength of these stocks was
attributed to the old cause of an expected
disbursement In some negotiable form of the
beneficiary results of the Iron ore deal. There
was nominal strength also in Illinois Central
and in Chicago &' Alton, which was explained
by the belief that the aiisumption of the con
trol of the Illinois Central In the Harrlman
interests argues some project of closer rela
tions between roads dominated by Harrlman.
The local call money rate was maintained
today, but it did not advance. The tone of
the time money market, however, was strong
and nervous. Very little money was In the
market. There is some confidence that the
interior demand for currency Is nearly satis
fied for the present, but the condition of the
local money market in the Immediate future
is believed to be dependent on the attitude of
London lenders In connection with the next
stock market settlement.
Reports from Washington of a case In
preparation for the prosecution of the Stand
aid Oil Company received some attention in
the market. The demand from uncovered
shorts, which caused recoveries In prices, dis
closed that bear activity was an Important
element In the markets weakness, but con
siderable net losses remained after the rally.
The closing tone was firm and dull.
Bonds were heavy. Total sales, par value.
$1,788,000. United States bonds were un
changed on call. '

Carry Values Downward and
Close Is at Lowest Point.
CHICAGO. Nov. 7. Liquidation by dis
couraged holders of December contracts caused
weakness today in the local wheat market.
Prices were comparatively steady earlier in
the day, but the market became weak about
the noon hour and prices steadily declined
until the close, the final quotations being al
most at the lowest point of the day. Receipts
in the Northwest are still small and this,
with the steadiness of the Liverpool market,
held up prices here. The feature of trading
was general profit-making, in December, the
weakness of that option lln the New York
market having eome effect on prices here.
December opened unchanged to a shade lower
at 73?c "to 7374e, sold at 74c and cloa?J
at 73c, a net decline of 3c.
Lower cables and increased local receipts
had a weakening effect on the corn market.
A decline of lc to 2c per bushel In the price
of new cash corn depressed the price of the
options. The market closed easy. December
opened a shade to c lower at 42ig42c.
sold, at 4242c and declined to 42c,
where lt closed, net gc lower.
The oats market was active for the greater
part of the day. Later the market yielded to
the weakness of wheat and corn, but prices
at the close were only slightly below the
final figures of Monday. December opened un
changed to c lower at 81Vi?31e. sold up
to 34c and declined to 34c. closing at
34 c. a net decline of c.
Provisions were firm all day on a good
demand. Hog receipts at Western packing
centers were smaller than for the correspond
ing time last year and prices for live stuff
were lOiffloc higher. January pork closed 5c
up at $13.07. lard, lard waa 2c up and

Weather Too Wet for Railroad Grad
ing on Drain Branch.
DRAIX, Or., Nov. 7. On account of the
recent rains and the unstable condition
of the weather, the C. E. Loss Company
has suspended grading operations on the
Drain-Coos Bay Railroad for the Winter.
The mulps used in grading- belong to C.
"W. Reed, and they are being shipped to
California as fast as cars can be ob
tained. The Loss Company's contract is only
for grading and building tunnels, and the
ballast and track will be put in by the
Southern Pacific Company. A temporary
bridge is being built over Elk; Creek, on
the north side of the "Y," and when lt
is complete the track will be laid through
South Drain. As soon as the track is
laid a steam shovel will be put into
operation on a high point at the end of
the lirst mile of grade.
The work on the tunnels will continue
during the Winter. Cole & Sweeney,
contractors for Tunnel No. 1, nine miles
west of here, are pushing the work from
both ends, and are now well under
ground. Good progress has also been
made on the Loss Company tunnel at
Paradise Creek, 19 miles west. Grading
will be continued next Spring as soon as
the weather will permit.
