DRIED FRUITS FIRM
Rumor of Corner on California
PRICE ADVANCES SHARPLY
THIS MOKXLNG ORECJOMAX, SATURDAY, JNO VE31BKK 1U, 1U06.
Bullfrog Rush M
Strong Export Demand for the Fruit
In the East Oregon Prune
Crop Being Cleaned
Practically all lines of dried fruits show
much firmness, but the greatest strength
is In tile apple market. Advices from the
East, say that the export demand there is
strong and that higher prices are predicted.
On top of this comes a rumor from Cali
fornia of a corner in the apple market by
packers, who have advanced the price 1
;ent in two days. These developments have
caused great interest In the local situ
ation, as values in this state will be af
fected sympathetically. Oregon has a fine
crop of dried apples this year, and the
holders confidently expect an Improvement
Prunes are also looking somewhat better
all along the line. Stocks are being cleaned
up fast and very few desirable Idts re
main in growers' hands In Oregon. The Job
bing trade is also nearly over, and it is
merely a question now of packing and ship
ping the remainder of the crop. Advices
received from San Jose are to the effect
that several of the large packers had prac
tically cornered the market for Santa Clara
prunes by liberal purchases from growers,
which they were storing in San Jose. It
was said, that these packers are now holding
about 25 per cent more stocks than would
he called for by the normal requirements.
.lkes by wire from Sonoma County were
that practically all of the stock In growers'
hands thero has been cleaned up.
I'l.KXTY OF HOI'S ARE OFFERED.
Crimen Now Show More Desire to Pell
lmdon Market Declines.
Hop dealers report It easier to buy in this
state than sell In toe East. Growers' views
In many cases have been lowered, but the
llca:i of "the Eastern trade have been re
durrt to an even greater extent, and there Is
still a margin between the prices of buyers
ami Kellers that prevents much business.
Growers do not feel like sacrificing their
h.ips In the face of the short English crop,
but Incy.src that If they sell at all, they
iuut do it at the unsatlsfactpry prices that
are offered them. Pome of them who are
fln-imlully able to. hold will do so until
tv.'. :iiK. when It Is hoped that the scarcity
of liony. will have , affected prices, but the
great majority will find it necessary to re
n'lz? on their crops before the year ends. It
.an he truthfully said that the dealers of
I'i'i-tland and Salem are doing what they
can to hold the market up, but it is a hope
less task when nearly all the other mar
kets of the world are weak and depressed.
New York, alone, of the great hop centers,
is showing strength, the strong buying of
Brewer Busch having lifted that market
cent or two.
The principal activity in this state yester
day was In the Aurora section, where the
growers showed much eagerness to sell.
The prices paid there ranged from 12 to
14Vi cents. The most important was made
by a Chinese lessee on the Crisell place,
who sold 112 bales to John Carmichael at
14 i.i cents. Another sale in Aurpra was
the Fred Gclsy lot of 5 bales, for which
l.achmund & Pincus paid 14 cents.
Klaber. Wolf & Netter bought the Newton
4 Downing lot of 09 bales at Whltson at 15
cents, and several other lots, all export
Mrs. Edith Linton, of Eugene, sold 100
bales at 134 cents, but the name of the
buyer was not learned. A report from
Grant's Pass said that Horst bought 50
bales from Henry rtuch. also another lot of
83 bales earlier In the week at the same
A cable from Thomas Ironmonger, re
ceived yesterday by Isaac Pincus & Sons,
said: "The London market has declined
10s. Very little doing, buyers holding off
waiting for lower prices." The Continental
market was quiet but steady.
Steamer Vegetables Delayed.
Trading In fresh produce was only fair
ye.steiday, so far as city business was con
cerned, but country orders were good.
There were no car lot receipts. The steamer
Roanoke, due today, has a lot of California
truck, consisting of sprouts, peppers, - to
matoes, peas, beans, persimmons, pome
grunatcs and grape fruit. Four cars of
bananas are duo today. Sweet potatoes
are scarce and the market is practically
bare of oranges.
Poultry Market Clows Weak.
As receipts of poultry were light yester
day, stocks were practically cleaned up In
spite or' the light demand. The market,
however, doted easy.
Thre were no changes In the egg market.
Hutter is moving out freely and as the
supply of cream has been checked some
what, the tone of tho market Is steadier.
Sharp Advances In Fish,
Sharp advances are reported from the
East in practically all grades of canned
and salted fish, owing to the phenomenally
short catch on both shores of the Atlantic.
Many orders cannot be confirmed on sar
dines and sprats and in some cases where
the orders have been confirmed they can
not be filled.

GOLDFIELD, Nev., November 6, 190G.
TO THE PUBLIC:
We desire to state that the use of our names in the 'advertisement of the
so-called Union Securities Company of Nevada as directors of the the Bull
frog Rush Mining Company, in which it is stated the six million dollars'
worth of ore is already blocked out in this property, is unauthorized, and
that, according to our best information, the statement is absolutely and un
qualifiedly false. - ,
The property is unquestionably a splendid prospect, and during the,
course of its early development held out great hopes of becoming a great mine,
but at this time the best average assays obtained in the lower workings are
from sixty cents to one dollar per ton. There is a large quantity of ore that
has been opened up in the winze and upper tunnels which gives asays' of
from fifteen to thirty-five dollars per ton, but this, in itself, after deducting
the cost of mining and milling, does not establish for this property a valua
tion of $825,000. which, on a capitalization of 1,500,000 shares, at the par
value of one dollar, offered at fifty-five cents per share, would be the case.
We retain our positions on the directorate of the Bullfrog Rush Mining
Company for the piesent, 8, in order to protect important interests, but we
warn anybody who intends investing in the stock of the Bullfrog Rush Min
ing Company that if he does so it is at his own risk, nor do we in any way
indorse anv other venture of the United Security Company of Nevada, of
whose responsibility we know nothing.

MORE RESISTANCE SHOWN
STOCKS GENERALLY STEADY IX
SIUTE OF MONEY STRINGENCY.
Additional Relief by Treasury De
partment Expected Poor Bank
Statement Looked For.
NEW YORK, Nov. 9. Today's stock mar
ket was of much the same character aa
that of yesterday. Better resistance was
shown, however, to depression,. In spite of
the aggravation of the money stringency.
Money on call went to 12 per cent quite,
early In the day and to 15 per cent before
the close. The strength of the time loan
market was also Increased and the payment
of premiums over the legal Interest rate ex
tended in some cases to loans for the six
months' period. Loans for 60 and 00 days
were on a 7 per cent basis.
The .expectation became general that a
weak showing would be made by the banks
In the weekly statement tomorrow. The
outgo to the Interior has gone on this week
and with the absorption by the sub-Treasury
promises to diminish the cash reserves
of the banks by between J2.000.00u and
$3,000,000. It Is to the change in the local
market, however, to which most importance
Is attached. The action of the money mar
ket for the last day or two has suggested
that the banks are beginning to feel at last
the pressure upon their resources, due 'to
the transfer of loans from London to this
market In connection with the large reduc
tion -In the account of American securities
supposed to have taken place in London at
the last stock market settlement. It has
been the subject of puzzled conjecture In
the financial district that no effect has been
shown on the loan Item of the banks In the
last two statements as & result of thla shift
ing process from London to this market,
fe'o far contrary to expeotatlon was the
bank showing in the last two weeks, that
there were not lacking those who maintained
today that tomorrow's statement would show
a continued contraction In the loan item.
There was a. marked difference tn the tone
of the money market today, however, from
that on the days preceding the former bank
Northern Pacific was again a point of
resistance to tho depression In the market,
with no news beyond the reiteration of the
rumor of a coming "melon cutting." The
report of the determination to capitalize
the Pullman surplus and to distribute It to
stockholders gave some sympathetic cre
dence to the Northern Pacific report. Pull
man rose sharply at the opening, but fell
violently afterward. Reports were circulated
of Intended resistance to the form of tho
proposed bonus to stockholders on the part
of an organized majority. American Woolen
extended Its breaks of yesterday on account
of the decision to increase the Issue of pre
ferred stock. This stock subsequently ral
lied. The resistance to the decline and the
tendency toward recovery were due to the
positiveness with which reports were made
that additional relief for the money market
by the Treasury Dipartment had been de
termined upon. It was even asserted that
the Secretary of the Treasury was in the
financial district. These reports failed of
The foreign exchange rates were affected
by the local money situation and declined in
spite of the rise in sterling rates both at
Paris and at Berlin. The private discount
rate also rose at Psris. The week's exports
of grain showed a material decline from
those of last ,wcek, amounting to :::;7.1;i
bushels in the case of wheat and to 4"J!1,207
bushels in the case of corn. The recovery
in the money rate, after easing off. unsettled
the closing, which was heavy and lifeless,
and left net changes mixed.
Bonds were steady. Total sales, par value,
$1,:I44.000. United States bonds were un
changed on call.

the Market and December Closes
With a Gain of Three
Klgliths of a Cent.
CHICAGO. Nov. 9. The local wheat mar
ket today was firm on small receipts In the
Northwest, the December delivery closing
with a net gain of c. With the excep
tion of an easjt tone at the opening, senti
ment in the wheat pit was bullish all day.
Lower cablis and clear weather generally
throughout the United States caused mod
erate selling in the first few minutes, but
offerlng.-i were readily taken. The market
appeared to be oversold und local shorts,
actuated by the small movement of wheat
to Northwestern markets, were anxious to
cover. Total primary receipts were also
light. December opened unchanged to a
fhadc lower at 72&72c to 72c, ad
vanced to 73lic and closed &c up at 75c.
Liberal Argentine shipments and excel
lent weather conditions in the United States
caused some selling of corn early In the day
and result'.cl in a slightly easier feeling.
Tie market, however, soon became firm on
covering L shorts and a good demand by
commission houses. The close was firm.
December opened unchanged to c lower
at 42i(ii42c, sold up to 42 c and closed
at the highest point. Local receipts were
240 cars, with 30 of contract grade.
Trading in the oats pit was active anil
the market was firm all day. There was a'
good general demand, especially for the
May delivery. An advance of c in the
price of cash oats helped speculative trad
ing. December opened unchanged to a
shade higher at 34lit34c to 34c, ad
vanced to 34c and closed at 344j34c.
. With the exception of moderate weakness
early in the day, the provisions market was
firm. Tho feature of trading was the buy
ing of January lard by local packers. There
was also a fair demand for the entire list
by Investors. At the close, January pork
was up 7c at $14.15, lard was 2c higher
at $8.50 and ribs were unchanged at $7.62.
