THE MORNING OREGONIAN, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1907. 19 StOW'TQ SELLWHEAT Farmers Not Eager to Part With Their Crops. HOLD VERY FIRM VIEWS About Sixteen M ill ion Bushels Re main in (Growers' Hands Sta tistics on the Crop Move ment to Date. Ftjsures that havecen compiled on the wheat movement to date show that about JS.fVtO.OOO bushels of the Pacific Northwest crop have been exported and almost as nuh still remains unsold in farmers' hands. In view of the advancing tendency of the market, farmers are very deliberate In parting with their crops, and the disposi tion . of this surplus is therefore a slow matter. At the moment the shippers, " es pecially in this port, are not particularly eager to buy, owing to the congested con dition of the Portland docks and ware houses. The following figures show, In a general way. the position of the Northwestern wheat supply: Bushels. Crop 00.000,000 Home consumption 12,000,000 Kjcportable surplus Sold to date 4 S, 000,000 32,000.000 Tnsold . 16,000,000 Shipments . .' 18.000,000 Warehouse stocks ...14,000.000 Wheat is coming Into Portland at the rate of about 100 cars per day. as the amount being put afloat, however, is greater than fhis. it is likely there will soon be some relief from the congestion. Some of the ex porters find their movements handicapped by the scarcity of labor on the docks. Trade was only on fair volume yesterday. The market was quoted firm at previous prices. Wheat Arrivals at Tacoma. T A COMA, Wash.. Dec. 1ft. (Special.) Wheat is pourinir in fo rapidly from the Interior to the immense warehouses on the water front that there is every prospect that the grain receipts of December will break all records in the history . of the State Grain Inspector's office at this port. The daily grain receipts are running above the 00 -oar mark, and until December 1 less than 7' cars ot" grain were received daily. The month is tittle more than half gone ami 1 "47 cars of grain have been received for inspection. Of this number 1554 cars contained whfat. The total receipts of No vember, which was an exceedingly busy month for the State Grain Inspector, amounted to 2100 cars. Overaupply of Chickens. The poultry market was oversupplled with oMrkons yesterday and prices had to be "slashed to keep them moving. Dressed tur Key are beginning to arrive more freely. Most of the sales yesterday were around 18 cents. Ess continue weak in tone, with Inr creating receipts, and holders are punning sales. Titers are no new features In the butter market, which is firm. Hrarrity of Christmas Oranges. It Is likely that Portland will be short of oranges at Christmas tlme. Dealers or dered sparingly because of the recent drop, and as the packing-houses are now closed, they cannot replenish their supplies. Stocks are scarce on the street and the market rules firm. Trade generally was fair yes terday. A car of celery waa distributed. Active movement In Hops. The movement in the hop market Is still active, though not of the large proportions of last week's trade. Klaber, Wolf & Netter were liberal buyers yesterday of export Quality, but the terms were not learned. Bank Clearings, Clearings of the Northwestern cities yes terday were as follows: Clearings.

I,ovdal Says Klaber Does Not Understand 1'nlnn rian. SACRAMENTO, Cal.. Dec. 17. (To the Editor.) L'pon my return to Sacramento from a trip through the hop-growing dis tricts of California with a committee - on organization I was turprlsed to note an ar ticle in The Sunday Oregonian of the 8th inst , headed. "Says It Will Fall"; ' Herman Klaber's Opinion of the Hqpgrowers' Union' Up to this writing I have declined to be Interviewed by representatives of the press, as we had not organized the State of Cali fornia, and even now it is not my Intention to outline our plan in advance pf the com mittee which has arranged to visit Oregon and Washington. Therefore. I am reluctant to go Into print upon r. subject that has taken so much of my personal time and at tention. However, as the originator of the present movement to organize the "hopgrow ers of the -Pacific Coast, under what is to be known as the "Pacific Coast Hopgrowers' Union," I feel compelled to make a brief re ply to Mr. -Klaber's criticism, without wish ing to Impugn his motives. As Mr. Klaber has been laboring under a misapprehension of. our plans, I feel justi fied in asking the growers and dealers not to draw hasty conclusions of a matter that has not yet been outlined in Oregon and Washington. Mr. Klaber's article in The Ore gonian was evidently written under a mis conception of the objects and methods of the Pacific Coast Hopgrowers Union. If Mr. Klaber will await full information on the subject he will realize that our plan is not so very objectionable, even from the stand point of a dealer. There is nothing we have contemplated that can by any possibility make the condition of the grower worse than it is. while some substantial good is sure to result. Next week a committee from California will lay the plan before the growers of Ore gon and Washington for their consideration, and they have little doubt of the result, for it Is so plain and fir that It appeals at once to every grower. The growers of Cali fornia were ' at first reluctant, hut when they understood the matter they became practically unanimous In Us favor. I advise both dealers and growers to withhold any opinion until the plan has been laid before them officially by the committee selected by the growers of California, who alone have authority to represent the union. On behalf of the committee from Califor nia. I desire to state that we are all grow ers of hops, and as we feel the Interests of Oregon, Washington and California are mutual, we trust that every grower and dealer-grower will avail himself of the op portunity of attending at least one of the meetings. The California committee feels that Its mission Is not one of antasonism, but one of education and organ Ization, as the plan of forming a co-operative growers' union is so fair that it cannot but appeal to every grower Yours truly, W. E. LOVDAL. PORTLAND LIVESTOCK MARKET rrlces Quoted Locally on Cattle, Sheep and Hogs.

DAY'S NEWS FEATURELESS Holders 'ot Subjected to Pressure by . Money-Lenders Little De- mand for Mercantile Paper. Bonds Hold Steady. NEW YORK, Dec. 19. The atmosphere of the holidays began to gather about the stock exchange today and the tone of the dealings became dull and Indifferent. The operations showed tome of the favorite de vices of professional manipulation to be In force and the hole market gave clear evi dence of its narrow professional limitations. Activity was congested in a few stocks, and In these the action was Irregular and not ruled by any consistent motives. Any sign of strength in one part of the list was taken advantage of to self stocks at another. There was a rather general show of strength at the outset In- continuation of the move ment among the bears to cover up their shorts which has been manifest for a day or two. Meantime, stocks which have been made the engines of the bulls in lifting prices against the shorts began, to show the effect of the retreat of the bull party. Especially In Reading, the' movement to take profits -was conspicuous and that stock was sold .teadily, at the time the Hill stocks were most conspicuously strong. ' There was little in the occurrences of the day with any direct bearing on values of securities. The rise in American Loco motive seemed to indicate a feeling of grati fication by stockholders that the rate of the dividend distribution was left un changed. New Tork Air Brake, however. was equally strong, in spite of yesterday's decision to postpone the dividend action. New Tork Central and Pennsylvania did not share In the early rise in prices, notwith standing yesterday's declaration of the divi dend at the full 6 per cent rate for the first and an Increase in the subsidiary Pennsyl vania companies' dividend In the cae of the other. Much weight is given to the sup posed Intention of these companies to pre pare the way by these dividend actions for the offering ot additional new securities at a later period. A sharp advance in the London price of copper was a feature of the day's news.. Holders of stock were not suhjected to any great pressure by lenders of money, but the easier tone of the call loan market is at tributed to the keeping of funds in hand for the needs of ,the end of the year. The time money market Is almust wholly nom inal yet, and there Is no market of conse quence for commercial paper. There are some fears of embarrassment unless suffi cient demand for merchants' paper springs up to take care of some of the large re quirements . at the end of the year. Rates for call loans became somewhat firmer as the, day progressed and there was an active demand again for remittances to London. Another engagement of gold was made in London for New York, nevertheless. The weak Bank of England return was dis liked in London, and any reduction in the official discount rate before the turn of the year was considered less likely. Not much of the earlier gains were left at the end of the day. Bonds were steady. Total sales, $2,136. 000. United States bonds were unchged on call. CLOSING STOCK QUOTATIONS. Closing Sales.

Connecticut Bank-Wrecker Says He Only Took $345,000 Will Resist Extradition. SAN DIEGO, Cal., Dec. 19. A special dispatch to the Tribune from Ensenada, Cal., concerning the arrest of W. F. Wal ker, the defaulting cashier of the Sav ings Bank of New Britain, Conn., lsa;-3 that Walker went under the alias of Mor rison while in Lower California. He was arrested on the morning of December 14 at a mining camp called The Potrero, about 100 miles southeast of Ensenada, by the Mexican police on an order issued to Governor Vega through the Secretary of State at Washington and a similar Secretary of the Mexican government at Mexico City. Mr. Hoffmann, the Pin- kerton detective in charge of the hunt, accompanied the police into the moun tains and was present at the time of the arrest. - ' Walker confessed that he is the man wanted in New-Britain and that he was cashier sf the bank there, but says he took only $20,000 in cash and about J325.OO0 in securities. An officer with necessary papers is now on the way from the East and he is prepared to identify the pris oner personally. When Walker was ar rested only $1.10 was found in his pockets. When the police arrived at the camp. Walker had his things packed and was apparently prepared to go further into the mountains or to some other section of the wild country. ' He was evidently aware that the officers were on his trail. Atter being handcuffed, Walker seized a revolver belonging to one of the camp laborers and tried , to kill himself, but was prevented by the police under com mand of Jose Jiminez, the Chief of Police at Ensenada. The prisoner was held in close confine ment in a single cell, and accorded the best care. Meals are served from a res taurant and he is not subjected to any of the indignities that usually attend the I prisoners In a Mexican Jail. This treat ment will be accorded at least until tls positive identiflcaton. NEW BRITAIN, Conn.. Dec. 19. The officials of the Savings Bank of New Britain learned today that W. F. Wal ker, the, defaulting treasurer of that in stitution, will resist extradition. GRAIN NOW ALL THRESHED Gilliam Wheat 'Sacked After Longest . Run on Record. CONDON, Or.. Dec. 19. (Special.) The threshing of the enormous wheat crop In Gilliam County is practically concluded. A few farmers are still threshing with private horsepower machines, and some will have to feed their stock from the stacks, but the greater' part of the crop Is sacked. J. C. Wright, who brought a machine from Pendleton, has taken, his big separator to Condon for the Winter. It was thought for some time during the first part of ,the season that the threshing could not be finished. This season's run has been the longest on record, more than 100,000 sacks being turned out by one machine alone. The farmers are taking advantage of the good weather and roads and are getting their wheat Into the warehouses as fast as possible.

The Union Pacific directors have, in common with directors of other roads owning and operating coal mines, been discussing the question of the segregation of the coal and transportation departments in ac cordance with the provisions of the rate law of last year. The provisions of this law will prohibit them on and after May 1 from transporting any article or com modity, other than timber, manufactured or produced by them. The interpretation given the laws by the attorneys for the Union Pacific is that the company may transport its own coal for its own use in transportation or otherwise, but shall not sell such coal (from Its own mines) before or after it 'hae been; transported. In accordance with this in terpretation of the law. it is planned by the Union Pacific to keep its coal mines for its own exclusive use. The Union Pacific Coal Company Is owned almost exclusively by the Union Pacific Railroad Company. NET. GUN IS SMALL Wheat Closes Steady in Chi cago Market.

Wu Ting Fangr, who has been reappointed to the post of Minister to the United States, left today for Washington. He will sail from Shanghai in January, taking: with him a number of young Chinese stu dents. In view of the public status between China and the United States, the throne, it is understood; has entrusted Wu Ting Fang with a message of un usual warmth to President Roosevelt. The indemnity proposal and the speech delivered by Secretary Taft at Shanghai have served to draw Chinese attention to the United State, and as a result of the efforts of the native press, the position of the United States in the Far East is better understood in China than ever befare. It is believed in some quarters that China will show her appreciation by giving preference to American commerce.- The departure of the battleship fleet for the Pacific has aroused much ca riosity among the enlightened Chinese who are reading foreign newspapers with great care 'in an effort to discover a clue to the meaning of the trip. The Government is 'anxious for in formation regarding the manner in which the Unfted States will act in the matter of reduction of. the -Boxer in demnity. It hopes for something tan gible, as it is unable to raise the money which it sorely needs for admin istrative purposes, especially in - the field of mines and railroads. Wu Ting Fang Is fully empowered to act in the matter of the Indemnity payments, and he hopes to reach Washington before Congress takes any action. ACCUSED OF $500 THEFT J. I. G.
