THE MORNING OKEGOSIAN, SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1907.
OFFERINGS ARE FEW
Wheat Market Is Strong, but
Not Much Is Selling.
SPOT GRAIN IS IN DEMAND
There Are No Established Prices
Now, but Buyers Will Pay Ac
cording to Their Needs Ru
mors of Sales of Hops.
The local wheat market, which has been
uniformly strong during most of the season,
gained some strength sympathetically trora
the bulge In the Eastern markets yester
day, but the prices quoted by the trade
how Jtttle change. The market is largely a
nominal affair, as stocks here are small
and in the country available lots are be
coming more widely scattered. While club
wheat is nominally worth about 76c. there
are no established prices and buyers will
pay for spot offerings In accordance with
On the Sound, where the millers have
again got into communication with the Ori
ental trade, prices of spot wheat have been
bid up rather sharply in the past two days.
The northern mills were for a time shut
mkX of the Oriental business by the car
shortage, but they are again operating and
re evidently taking on some new Asiatic
contracts, judging from the decreased in
quiry here. Local shippers, however, are sold
up many weeks ahead and have about all
the export business they can take care of
until Summer opens. The later demand,
ven If it should be materially decreased,
will doubtless be more than enough to ab
sorb the small remnant of last year's crop
thai will then be on hand.
RUMORS OF LATE HOP SALES.
Growers Not Cultivating Their Yards as
Well as Usual.
There were rumors in the hop market
late yesterday of some good-sized business
being done up the Valley, but the particu
lars were not obtainable. In the local mar
ket nothing was done. Advices from Wash
ington reported hops being freely offered
there at from So to 5c with buyers out of
One of the leading growers of Oregon,
who was in the city yesterday, gave it as
his opinion that the coming crop will by
no means equal that of last year. He said:
"It is a mistake to say that the yards
are being cultivated up to their limit this
season. The low prices have discouraged
many of the growers and a tour of inspec
tion through the hop sections will show In
numerable instances where the yards are
being only partly cultivated or not worked
at all. The scarcity of labor Is partly re
sponsible for this. Some of the growers
who are disposed to put their yards in
proper shape find It practically impossible
to secure help at any price. The high cost
of material Is also a disadvantage. The ell
mate last year was most favorable to the
growing of a big crop, which is more than
can be said of the weather so far this sea
A London cable received yesterday said:
"Market dull and declining. Crop prospects
good.' The latest circulars from the Eng
lish hop trade say :
Wild, Neame & Co., London The low
level of values has attracted more busienss
during the past week, and there is less pres
sure to sell, resulting In a rather firmer
Manger fc Henley, London A better In
quiry continues for all useful copper hops.
and several falr-Flzed parcels have recently
cnangea hands- Frlces remain unaltered..
W. H. & H. Le May. London The lower
prices now current have brought about more
business, consumers availing themlseves of
the present favorable opportunity to cover
J. H. Meredith ft Co., Worcester Trade
remains In a very lifeless condition, and
the few small sales transacted out of mer
chants' stocks have been at rather easier
rates. Supplies In first hands are still held
above buyers' views, and no growers' hops
have passed the public scales since Feb
ruary. SHADING OF BITTER PRICES.
JLow Quotations on Front Street Weaken
the Entire Market.
The general tone of the butter market is
decidedly weak. As is always the case when
ihe output is heavy, many produce jobbers
who do not have a regular butter trade, are
receiving supplies that they can only move
"by shading the current quotations. The reg
ular established brands of outside butter
are cleaning up, but the market Is affected
by the concessions made on the less-known
brands. The city creameries hold to the
2ft c quotation, but this price will probably
not be maintained after the present week.
The local demand for eggs was sluggish
yesterday and the shipping inquiry was not
strong enough to clean up the arrivals.
Prices were weak but not lower.
Small Spring chickens are arriving more
freely and are stilt sold at high prices, but
such figures cannot be maintained long.
Good Demand for lred Meats.
There Is a steady demand tor all kinds of
dressed meats. Receipts of pork are uneven
one day heavy and the next light, but on
the whol the market is firm. Fancy small
veal is very strong, as the supply Is in
sufficient. Mutton is also moving very freely
and commands high prices when choice, but
poor stock will not go welt. Dressed lambs
are more plentiful and are quoted a shade
lower. The beef market is strong.
Lemon Market Very Firm.
Vegetables were in good supply and
strong demand yesterday and prices gen
erally held steady. Lemons were quoted
very firm in response to the advance in
California. A car of oranges was received
In the forenoon. Strawberry receipts were
light and some of the lots were of rather
poor quality and sold comparatively low.

GETS SOME SOIiACE FROM THE
But There Is No Other Response in
the Stock Markets-Crop News
NEW YORK, April 26. For a good many
days part intimations have been current in
stock market circles that the address of
President Roonevelt at the opening; of the
Jamestown Exposition would contain matter
calculated to revive actlva operations in se
curities and quiet all apprehension over
that attitude of the Administration toward
corporations. Immediately upon the publi
cation of the addresa today all activity died
out of the stock market and practlcaJ stag
nation ensued. A favorite racing event also
helped to deplete tha !ate attendance at the
The President's speech came in for much
discussion, nevertheless. His citation of
Burke's "If I cannot reform with equity I
will not reform at ail." as the exact spirit
in which this country should move to the
reform of abuses of corporate wealth, and
his etress upon the point of permitting such
ample legitimate profits as will encourage
individual initiative were dwelt on as offer
ing assurance of immunity for Invested
wealth from such dangers as have been
ostentatiously dreaded by capitalists. Crop
damage reports continued to play a large
part in the speculation.
The tone of the stocks was rather firm
for most of the day. That strength was an.
explained by any news. Tha operations in
Union Pacific were regarded as of some Im
portance, but no conclusive opinion could
be gathered as to whether accumulation or
distribution was the design. Money con
tinued easy In spite of tha prospect for a
