EXPORTS TO ORIENT
Decline This Year as Com
pared With Last.
REASONS FOR FALLING OFF
Trade 1905 AVasi Abnormally
Large, Owing to Lack of All
Kinds of Merchandise,
Caused by AVar.
Oriental trade reason for falling off
lit exports.
HOPS Local market still quiet.
FRUIT Supply of banana runs
low.

car situation.

BGGS Active and firnr.
BUTTER Local market In good
condition. .
Tha decline In the export trade of the
United States to China and Japan as com
pared with 1905 has led to considerable mis
understanding. The United Kingdom and
other nations have suffered similar losses,
showing that there was nothing peculiar in
the decrease in American exports.
The Daily Consular and Trade Reports,
published by the Department of Commerce
nnd Labor, explains that the exports in 190.";
were abnormally larire, owing to the lack
of all kinds of merchandise in Manchuria, j
caused by the war. There was a rush after
the war to fill tne gap, and that caused a
large increase in the irfa ports. Rut normal
conditions have now followed, and while the
Importations have fallen off, they stllr re
main much above the normal of years pre
ceding the war.
For the eipht months ending with August,
lOOtl, the exports from the United Stales to
China were In value $22,316,210, as compared
with $42,300,91)0 in the corresponding months
of 100."i. Rut the largest exports in any
preceding year were $ 17.01 :t,S4S In l'.M2,
showing that the exports this year are $3,
0"0,000 greater In eight months than they
were in any year preceding i:Kr. The ex
ports to Japan for the eight months aggre
gated $20,752. :i7 7. as compared with $.'!!,
174, (1S2 in the eight months of IDOS. But
only once before, and that in 1000, were the
exports to Japan for the corresponding time
greater than they were this year, while In
li'01-2 and up to and Including 1004 they
were very much less than for 1!H)0. The ex
ports to Asia and Oceania for the eight
months of this year were In value $sui,t'll,
375. which was much larger than In any
year preceding 1003, but in the clsht months
of 1005 the exports aggregated $110,225,003.
OUTLET IS FOUND FOR CHH KFN
turplns Stock Sent to the North and XT ices
Improve.
The express company notified the Front
street poultry trade yesterday afternoon that
it would take poultry shipments to the
nrtn and as a result the day "cloned w ith an
advance of 1c In the chicken market. A fair
quantity of poultry was taken off the street
anil forwarded to the north. It was said
at the express office that the shipments
would bo made by way of Wallulu. It was
promised that the road will bo open for di
rect shipments in ample time to handle all
the Thanksgiving poultry moving.
Dressed turkeys are beginningto come In
freely but the demand had hardly opened
up yesterday. Trade quotations were 20c and
21c for the bulk of the lots received. Live
turkeys were slow sale. Live geese and ducks
were in good demand.
There was an active market for all kinds
of eggs, with no further advance in the price
of ranch stock.
The butter market Is In healthy condition.
BANANA STOCKS AGAIN 1SUN LOW.
Potato Shipments Are Improving as & Few
More Cars Are Available.
The banana market is again almost bare.
The last lot received was ripe and a good
deal of it was worked off on the peddlers.
Four cars are due Sunday night and as they
will probably be ripe, they will be imme
diately disposed of for the holiday trade. A
car of fancy navel oranges was received and
quoted at $3.75. Other varieties of fruit
were In fair supply.
As a result of the recent agitation, there
has been some Improvement In the car sit
uation, according to the potato trade, rihlp
itwnts to the South are not heavy, but they
aro better than they were earlier in the
week.
okfa;on hop market still ira..s.
Only It tiMn ess Reported Yesterday XV ua in
La no County.
Tlits hop market was again a very dull
aiTutr yesterday. The local trade had no
business to report and telephone messages
from Salem, Aurora, Sherwood, SUverton nnd
1'idk County points were of Inactive condi
tions. The only dealings that were learned
were at Eugene, where Kola Neis bought 75
bales from William Neis and 40 bales from
liruno Vitus, the latter at 11 cents.
In spite of the slow market, growers are
holding remarkably well and choice lots at
bargain prices are extremely hard to find.
Tho latest olTiciol bulletin of the Depart
ment of Agriculture gives the following es
timates of foreign crops : The lOoo nop
crop of England is officially estimated at
2,57,0,'0 pounds, against 7,704,501 pounds
in 1003. The French hop crop of 1005 is of
ficially estimated at 10,00;t,53i pounds trom
an area of 73S0 acres. .

TONOFAII STOCKS ARE VERY DULL.
Big Orders Fx pee ted for Goldllelds and
None Develop.
SAX FRANCISCO, Nov. 23. (Special.)
The Tonopahs were dull and "heavy, the call
of Rescue bringing out the largest batch of
orders. Goldflelds were irregular and the
rumor of some big orders for today's mar
ket did not develop. Two dollars and 50
cents was bid for Little Tonopan but no
stock was brought out at that price. Silver
Fick started to go down, but good buying
orders brought the price back to $1.00.
Jumbo was $4 bid. Silver Pick was not well
supported.
. The call of Great Bend caused a commo
tion and it was bid up 15 cents before all
the orders were filled. Red Top extension
was well traded in and a small business in
Daisy did not weaken Us price. There is
nothing new to report and the market is
apparently a speculative proposition. Among
sales were:

DULL ID SAGGING
Stock Market Unsettled and
-Irregular.
CALL MONEY. IS STILL EASY
St. Paul the Only Leading Issue to
Show Much Strength Realiz
ing In Union Pacific
Hill Bnying Katy.
NEW YORK, Nov. 23. The unsettled and
irregular tone of the stock market continued
In evidence today. The uncertainty of the
Price movement discouraged oierarronjt and
the consequence was a dull and sagging., ten
dency. The downward movement was
neither universal nor marked. There were
strong spots in the list, but they were
among the least influential stocks. There
was a story of Hill buying of Missouri. Kan
sag & Texas to account for the rise In those
stocks, said to be for a strategical move
aKain-t the Harrlman control of Illinois
Central. Of the stocks of most prominence,
St. Paul was the only one to be notably
strong at any time.
The evidence of realizing In Union Pacific
wai of more effect on sentiment. The only
explanation offered lor it was the assertion
that the forthcoming annual report of the
company would prove only a routine offi
cial document. The heaviness of Union Pa
cific had an additional iniiiience from the
fact that the decline In Standard Oil shares
on the curb market was resumed, the price
yielding at one time to 4u0. Supporters of
stocks had to contest also with the effect
of further realizing in Great Northern pre
ferred and the fall in the price of ore cer
tificates, which were dealt In on the curb
when issued.
The cail money market showed no sign
of disturbance. The market for time loan.-',
however, was characterized as stringent,
and brokers reported that that market was
practically, bare of offerings. The stock
market was unresponsive to the continual
spurts in a series of low-priced stocks and
the market closed easy.
Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par
value, l.:;ji;.000. United States bonds were
unchanged on call.

Apparent.
CHICAGO, Nov. 23. Early In th day
pit-traders bought wheat on the compara
tively firm tone of the Liverpool cables and
the continued small receipts at Minneapolis
and Duluth. The market for a time was
firm, "but offerings were not large and trad
ing soon began to draff. The principal de
mand was for the May option, which was
wanted by commission houses. Toward the
middle of the day bears began to hammer
December and the price of that delivery
cased oft. The demand for cash wheat at
Minneapolis was again urgent and exports
of wheat and flour from this country for
the week were larger than for the corre
sponding week last year. December opened
unchanged to 4ic higher at 73 ft 73 c
cold between 73 & 73 He and 73&c and closed
at 73 He.
Trading in the corn pit was extremely
quiet, but the market was strong for the
greater part of the day. The market closed
steady. December opened a shade higher
at ifr4-ic, sold between 42'c and 4c
and -closed at
Oats were higher because of liquidation
in the December holdings by local longs.
December opened He to & 4 c higher and
enld at 33c. sold oft to 33Hy33Vc and
closed at 33ic.
Provisions were Inclined to be weak all
day because of Felling by local packers,
which was based on a decline In the
price of live hugs. At the close. January

NEW YORK. Nov. 23. Bradstreeta to
morrow will say:
Though checked In some sections by irreg
ular weather conditions, trade Is active as a
whole, holiday demand is opening up earlier
than usual. Industry in nearly all lines is
still pushed to the limit of production and
little relief from the prevailing car conges
tion is yet apparent.
The grain markets have displayed fair
steadiness with few fluctuations on contin
ued light movement from the producing cen
ters, part of which is attributed to the car
congestion. The feeling grows, however,
that the milling wheat production In the
Northwest has been overestimated. Hides
are scarce and high and leather prices tend
upward.
Building u rather quiet and materials are
not very active, although lumber is in fair
request. Raw and refined sugar are quiet
and unchanged here, but the prices on the
Pacific T'oast are a quarter cent lower on the
breaking out of another sugar war. Copper
is firm and the - demand for electrolytic for

Movement Is Better Than Last Year. Col
- lections Are Good.
NEW YORK. Nov. 23. R. G. Dun & Co.'B
weekly review of trade tomorrow will say:
Weather conditions have retarded trade
in seasonable staple Itnes of merchandise,
but holiday goods have begun to move un
usually early and In a volume that prom
ises satisfactory rerults. Wholesale busi
ness is maintaining a much better movement
than last year and further improvement la
noted in collections.
Activity In the hide market is fully main
tained, most Western packers being fully
sold up. NarroW fluctuations have charac
terized the metal market. Diminished re
ceipts at the Northwest gave support to
wheat, total arrivals at primary markets
since July ,1 now showing a material loss
from last year's movement, but smaller for
eign buying and less activity at flour mills
offset the sustaining factors.
Liabilities of commercial failures thus far
reported for November amounted to $4,111.
P44, of which $1,801,687 were in manufactur
ing. $2,207,006 in trading and $103,251 In
other commercial lines.

M'MINNVILLE. Or.. Nov. 23. (Special.)
Some hops have changed hands at prices
ranging at from 12 to 15 cents, grading
from babies to good" primes. Growers fell

cleaned up the actual trading in Oregons
will then begin
J. B. Fletcher has Just received the fol
lowing letter from the secretary of the So
noma Hopgrowers Association:
Santa Rosa, Cal., Nov. IS. Your letter
of some time ago Just at hand. Yes, we are
arranging -a shipment of hops to England,
and several carloads will be started this
week. Our plan Is this: First, we got in
communication with London dealers; sec
ond, we got a cablegram code so as to re
duce the expense cf messages; third, we sent
samples as fast as we could get them to
England. Then on arrival in London the
dealers cable us the amount they are willing
to advance on same f. o. b. without recourse.
Then the secretary advises each individual
member as to the offer on his certain lot. if
accepted by grower the secretary and grower

enter into a written agreement of consign
ment, the secretary acting for dealer.
"When hops aro inspected and delivered
at depot, grower receives bill of lading and
on same draws advunce money at bank. By
doing this we are getting the hops away
from the short sellers at noma. Wo there
fore expect to benefit more in the future
by causing the dealers at home to iiult sell
ing our hops for less than they can be grown,
because they think there is going to be a
big crop. At the present time 15 to 15
13 all that wo can gel for our goods. While
we can get 14 cents advance without re
course and a good chance of getting, 5, 6,
7 or perhaps still more when the hops are
sold in London. Vsually lt would ot be.
advisable to ship all one's holdings, as, it
about one-third of each grower's holdings
went out, It would force home prices higher
than tho cne-third shipped would bring. Of
coune you should keep posted on the
world's supply and demand to determine
what per cent to ship.
