FRUIT OF OUR SOIL
Inland Empire Wheat Brings
RECORD CROPS REPORTED
Counting Grain, Fruit, Wool, Hops
and Lumber, Total Products of
Year Foot Enormous Total
Farmers of the great Inland Empire, that Is,
the states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho,
will receive for their wheat crop this year the
' enormous, eura of 142,000,000, according1 to the
statement of President A Ins worth, of the
United States National Bank. The commercial
banks are In the best position, to obtain ac
curate Information on this subject, as the
trust companies do not deal tn paper secured
by warehouse receipts or cargo manifests.
Large amounts of money are required by ex
porting houses with which to purchase wheat
In the Interior, and whea they delre to raise
additional funds, banks are prepared to make
advances on bills drawn against shipments
abroad, represented by certified manifests.
Farmers depend upon their local banks for
funds to carry them over harvest, and from
Information received by city banks from their
correspondents In the Interior, the "country"
banks are in excellent shape to provide , all
the money farmers need, without calling vary
extensively on the city for help.
To quote Mr. Alnsworth again, he estimates
that in view of the prospect of marvelous
crops of wheat, barley, oats, fruit, hops and
wool, and counting In the lumber output,
the total amount of money coming to the
Inland Empire for products of the soil for the
vear ending Decemher 31 will foot up 150.

handle all adrvance fundjs neceesary to market
the extraordinary crops now being harvested
and to take care of thoe yet to come. While
Portland banks will be called upon to furnish
a large proportion of needed funds, the other
cities in the great Pacific Northwest Seattle,
Tacoma and Spokane wilt 'contribute their
COUNTRY PRODUCE INACTIVE.
Eggs Continue to Drag Under More Eastern
The local egg market continues to be con
siderable of a problem. Most dealers, when
asked about the situation, make replies that
would not look well In print. One house will
report that a somewhat better tone is ob
servable and that stocks are cleaning up nice
ly, and the house nntt door will report the
market all shot to pieces and stocks accu
mulating as fast ss ever. Nearly every dealer
seen yesterday said he had advised his ship
pers to send in eggs on their own responsi
bility, not caring to name any advance price.
As to the market price, dealers are holding
for 22a for fresh ranch stock, with receipts
keeping ahead of demands of the trade. An
other oar of Eastern eggs arrived yesterday.
No change Is reported in poultry. Hens
till are in better request than, fryers, but
prices remain about stationary.
Fresh meats are In moderate request, fancy
veals being In best demand.
Butter continues firm at quotations. An
occasional lot of store butter makes Us ap
pearance, but on account of the hot weather,
arrives In an oily condition and is difficult to
CLIMATIC CONDITIONS RIGHT.
Sacramento Report Fruit Trade Improves
With Splendid Weather.
Alden Anderson's weekly report from Sac
ramento to the fruit trade says that climatic
conditions remain all right In all respects, it
Ibelng splendid weather for handling and ship
Iping. Specifically he reports with reference
jto the several seasonable fruits as follows:
Plums and prunes Shipment has been steady
-for the past week. The shipment for the next
,seven days will remain reasonably so,, al
though there will probably be a decrease.
Peaches The shipment of Fosters and Early
iCrawforda is nearly done, hut we will have
other yellow free varieties, including Susque
h annas. Late Craw fords, Elbertas, etc., to
go forward. The quality of the peaches has
been Improved rather than otherwise and we
look for them to arrive in the markets In bet
ter shape than they have been lately.
Pears This will be the highest" week of
Bartlett pear shipments we shall have to go
forward, but there will be quite a quantity
going forward right along for the next three
or four weeks.
Grapes We still have no general adverse
reports to advise you of from any district.
Crop Its doing nicely. A few Thompson Seed
less and Malvolse are going forward this week
and before very long Malagas will make their
Front Street Friiltmen Busy.
Reports from the Merced district. In Cali
fornia, state that shipments of sweet potatoes
; from that point will begin shortly In carlots
by freight, which will bring the price down
.to a more reasonable figure than Is possible at
(Present under express shipment. Yesterday's
quotation remained at 7 He a pound. The
; yield Is reported to be under the average.
Cantaloupes and watermelons continue to1
! arrive In large lots, but the price remains the
ieame as for several days past.
Carlots of peaches and grapes from the Cali
fornia shipping points are expected in the
jBext few days. The grape market Is re
ported to be In good shape tn the South and
crops promise to be up to expectations.
Green apples are coming In better and are
bringing around f 1 a box.
A car of oranges Is due and lemons are also
rolling. The tropicsl fruit market ra the
South Is reported quite firm, principally on
account of the difficulty In obtaining help.
packers finding men scarce and Inclined to
sak an advance in wages beyond ability to
pay. The northern part of the state Is also
attracting large numbers of laborers.
Good Movement In Cattle.
With receipts of six carloads of cattle at the
local stockyards, the market held fairly
steady both for cattle and other livestock
yesterday. According to tho Blue Mountain
Eagle, cattle are bringing good prices in the
Isee country this season. A sals was recently
made of 2500 head of 8-year-old steers for
October delivery at a figure above last year's
price on the corresponding dat, The sale
Is to net the cattlemen In the neighborhood
New York Hop Report.
In the last Issue the Waterville Times says
of the conditions In New York hopgrowlng
The yards in this vicinity present a most
beautiful appearance. cenerallv srieakinir.
Tha Humphreys are coming in blow and the
vine is clean and healthy looking, no vermin
having appeal eu as yet. We have been vit
lted with several heavy storms recently, the
one last night almost resembling a cloud
burst. The yards north of here which were so
badly damaged by the hail -rm of about
two weeks ago are recovering to a certain
extent. Yards that were said to have been
practically ruined at that time are now
believed to be In a fair way to yield a small
crop. The vines are branching out again
and are beginning to look more as they did
before the storm.
A writer in the Forest Grove News favors
hopgrowers forming a combine. The news
Fred Parsons, a Dlllsy hopgrower. believes
that all of the growers over the whole
United States should organise, "and then,"
says he. we would have an organisation
worth while and on that would force buyers
to pay a fair price." He is not an advocate
of state union, for he Bays that Is not suf
ficient and therefore he Is not a member of
that organlxatlon. "''California, New York.
Washington and Oregon should unite and se
lect a man and his assistants of business
principles and not hopgrowers to look after
the interests of the growers- Mr. Parsons
thinks that 15 ctnts would be a fair price to
both consumers and producers.

LOW RECORD FOR CONSOLS
Some Improvement In Sentiment En
sues When British Crisis Passes,
but Wall Street Awaits
NEW YORK, July 30 The stock market
developed a period of unsettlement tn the
early dealing, followed by quieter condition,
and some recovery. This was In consonance
with the course of events In London, to
which this market had become peculairly
sensitive by reason of the developments at
that center yesterday. Before the recovery
there set In British consols had extended the
low record touched yesterday by selling as
low as There was some further dis
order manifested In copper securities abroad,
also because of the additional decline In (Jie
price of the metal there. When conditions
settled in London It was accepted as the
passing of the crisis and sentiment corre
The completion of preparations for the
stock market fortnightly settlement in Lon
don, for which tomorrow Is the payday, was
given the responsibility tor the situation in
London. Money rates had a sharp advance
there by reason of these preparations. Money
on call In New York also was appreciably
higher. Paris is about to complete a stock
market settlement as well. Between the In
fluences of these various centers the question
of the continuance of the gold export move
ment was suspended.
Rising money rates here Invited some of
ferings of financial bills in the foreign ex
change market, and this helped to curb the
advanced tendency of progress.
The weekly bulletin of the weather bureau
on crops reported conditions In some sections
that were unfavorable, but the Immediate
action of the grain markets today deprived
the showing of influence on stocks. Some or
the buying of stocks was for London account
and marked the covering of shorts for that
account. London also reported some buying
of Americans there for continental account,
especially Kansas and Texas, which was one
of the features of strength.
There waa no disposition to operate in an
ticipation of the United States steel dividend
meeting, as it was known that the directors
would not go into session until the hour for
closing the exchange. The supposition that
there would be any change in the dividend
rate had been quite definitely advanced, in
terest centered In the report of unfilled or
der, on band, which were 7.608.878 tons,
showing' a falling off of about 400,000 tons
from the amount on hand three months ear
lier, a rate of recession not unusual for- the
second quarter of the year. The speculative
anticipation of record earnings for the quar
ter of as high as 44, 000.000. compared with
the actual showing of S45,5O3,705, a greater
Increase than expected.
Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par
value, $840,000. United States bonds were
unchanged on call.

HOW TO STOP BLOOD-LUST
New Yorker Asks Chicago Chler to
4 Suggest Plan.
CHICAGO, July 30. Chief of Police Snip
py, of Chicago, received a telegram last
night asking him to suggest a plan for
crushing the organizations to which many
of the atrocious crimes committed In the
large cities recently have been charged.
"New York Is experiencing unparalleled
outbreaks of crime, many of wfiich. are as
sassinations by members of secret soci
eties, blackmailing plots and criminal as
saults on women and little girls, chiefly
by foreigners. Commissioner Bingham
suggests organizing secret service. Will
you state your ideas of how best to cope
with the situation?"
The telegram was from an organization
Interested In the suppression of crime, and
not from the police directly.
"I stated that I thought Commissioner
Bingham perfectly able to cope with the
situation," said Chief Shlppy. "I don't
credit the crimes to foreign secret soci
eties, however. I think the crimes that
have been troubling New Tork and Ber
lin of late are th work of mental per
verts." The Chief said the time might come
when Chicago would deem It necessary
to enter a National compact to suppress
the Black Hand organization, so-called,
but such a movement further than the
Police Department has in hand all the
time would not be practical now.
