E OF SUCCESS
M. H. Durst Talks of Hop
WHAT IT WILL ACCOMPLISH
Hop Farmer of California .Thor
oughly Organized Dealers Will
Profit ly tlic Scheme It Is
Bad Only for the Shorts.
M. II. Durst, the California hopgrower.
who has come to Oregon in advance o the
committee of the Pacific Hopgrowcrs' Asso
ciation, which will organize the growers of
this state, was In Portland yesterday. Mr.
Durst feels satisfied that a majority of the
Oregon producers will Join the movement.
"Since I have been in Oregon I have
talked to a large number of growers and'
hava not found one who has-any valid rea
son to ofter against the association. There
Is no doubt In my mind that the project
will be carried through successfully. ,We
have completed, a fine organization of the
California growers and as soon as the Ore
gon and Washington growers are in line we
will be able to show some results, since I
have been In this state I have received word
from California that 90 per cent of the
grower of that state have either loincd the
union or promised to go into It. Thi is
even a larger proportion than we had hoped
for. The most lnlluential California grow
er have identified themselves with the
movement and the association Includes
among its members,' bankers, lawyers and
other professional men and a brewer.
"We are satisfied if the Oregon and Wash
ington growers Join us we can put the
hop Industry on a better basis. It is our
plan to finance the Pacific Coast growers so
they will not be compelled to make ruinous
contracts in order to harvest their crops.
The crop of the Coast will be handled as a
unit through selling agencies - appointed by
the growers themselves and the manipula
tion of the short sellers will be defeated.
Tho grower and not the shorts will reap
the profits when .we have organisation.
"In a year of overproduction; provision
will be made fot disposing of the surplus
to the beat advantage. My idea is to send
the surplus every year over to England.
This idea was first suggested to me some
years ago by one of the largest dealer
Krowers of Oregon. Wo can grow hops on
this Coast for half what it costs the Eng
lish growers, and if we send our urplus
there it is only a Question of a ihort time
ltefore the English growers go out of busi
ness. That will mean an enlarged market
for our hops, instead of exporting 50,000 or
100.000. bales a year we will export 200,000
bales. This looks to mo like a saner propo
sition than burning th surplus, a some
have proposed, when we have too many
"As for the dealers, I cannot see why they
xhould not favor such an organization.
What helps the hop industry will help them.
Huying, under the arrangement of common
warehouses such as we propose, will be
cheaper and more convenient than under the
present system. We do not intend to deal
directly with the brewers but expect to sell
our hop through the trade a heretofore.
The only persons who will suffer by the for
mation of an association will be the short
The first meeting of Oregon growers for
the purpose of forming a Coast association
will be held at Woodburn next Monday.
On Tuesday there will be a meeting at
Salem, another at Portland Thursday, at
McMlnnvllle Friday and at Independence
CHRISTMAS TCRKEY MARKET OPENS
Sale Are Made Around 18 and 19 Cent
Arrivals of Christmas turkeys were larger
yesterday and the demand, both on local
and shipping account, was good. Fates of
choice stock were mostly made at 18 to 19
cents, though it was reported a few very
fancy lots went at .20 cents. Dealers are
much pleased with the early opening of the
market. It Is the general opinion that the
supply will be sufficient for all requirements.
Today and Monday will be the big day In
the Front-street trade.
The supply of chickens was excessive yes
terday. The demand was poor and it was
necessary to make a further cut in prices.
Even this did not enable the trade to clean
up. Ducks and geese were in fair demand
Eggs continue to move freely at the
The butter market Is firm, so far as the
best. grades are concerned, but seconds are
only, about steady. A car of Eastern is be
ing offered at 30 cents and renovated but
ter Is offering- on the market at 25 cents.
ACTIVE DEMAND JOB HOLIDAY FRUITS
Car of Japanese Oranges Arrives and Sells
Business in the fruit Jlne continued very
brisk yesterday and active holiday buying la
looked for again today.
A feature of the day's arrivals was the
receipt of a straight car of Japanese
oranges, half of which was disposed of be
fore night. This is the first straight car
ever brought to Portland. They came to the
Pearson-Page Company. These oranges ap
propriately bear the name of Togo brand
and because of their relative cheapness are
in strong demand. Yesterdays quotation
wss 60 cents per box.
A car of California oranges came In. but
this fruit is still very scarce and will be so
until after Christmas. Apples are In good
supply and move fairly well. Celery has
advanced again In California.

TRADING IS NOT HEAVY
Today's Bank Statement Kxpected to
Show Much Improvement Vio
lent Advance In New York
. NEW YORK. Dec. 20. The dull trading
On the stock exchange today was accom
panied by considerable strength, which was
displayed In a spotty and Irregular manner.
Professional traders did much of the busi
ness, and buying to cover shorts by a re
treating bear interest was an important
factor in the activity. There was an as
sumption on the part of buyers of stocks
that tomorrow's bank statement will show
material recuperation in the position of the
The usual preliminary forecasts of the.
week's currency movement indicated some
improvement of position, but it was on in
timation of the concealed changes that the
assumption of radical betterment was based.
It was reported that turns had been made
during the week of some. of the advances to
trust companies that were beleaguered dur
ing the panic period, which were likely to
have notable effect not only on the caBh
item, but on the loans of the banks, as both
kinds of assistance are known to have been
extended to -the trust companies by the
banks In their period of need. The known
movements of money Indicate that the tide
of the cash movement to the interior has
last some of its force, while gold has con
tinued to arrive from abroad. The local
banks have benefited also from Increased
deposits of Government funds during the
week. The promised net result is a sub
stantial gain in cash by the banks, inti
mated to be in the neighborhood- of
Liquidation in the stock market during
the week is assumed to have effected some
reduction of the loan item, which would
also operate to bring the proportion of re
serves up toward the level , of the legal
requirements. The issuance during the day
of the call of the New York State Bank
Department for reports of state banks and
trust companies as of December 19, is ex
pected to be followed by greater freedom
upon the part of those institutions in ex
tending credits. Thl call is supposed to
have some restraining Influence upon the
policy of the trust companies in this respect.
The money market itself did not show any
greater ease, the call-loan rate, in fact,
jfcuchlng the highest level of the week. The
stock market ignored this and the continued
dearth of funds in the time-money market.
Additional gold was engaged abroad and dis
counts advanced in London.
An advance in the price of copper both in
London and here was a feature of the day
and made the copper industrials strong.
There was a violent advance In Consolidated
Gas and Its affiliated company, Brooklyn
Union Gas, based upon the judicial decision
in favor of the company's contentions
against the 80-cent gas law. Brooklyn RapW
Transit awed something to sympathy with
the rise in gas stocks. Southern Pacific was
freely bought In connection with the re
port of operations, which reported earnings
for November maintained at a htgh level.
Points of special strength of this kind
spread an influence through the rest of the
list and gave general strength to the mar
ket. Gains were maintaned to a firm clos
ing. Bonds were firm. Total sales, par value,
$3,030,000. United states bonds unchanged.

BIG HOLIDAY TRADE
But Value Is Not Up to That of
a Year Ago.
JOBBING BUSINESS QUIET
Tendency in Industrial T.incs Is
Still Toward Curtailment Finan
cial Conditions Slowly but
Surely Approaching Normal.
NEW YORK. Dec. 20. Bradstreef to
morrow will say:
Holiday buying nas had the center of the
stage, and retail business has felt very per
ceptibly the influence of the spirit of the sea
son. While much more marked than some
time ago, however, the volume of retail buy
ing as a whole is not up to expectations,
and is certainly well below a year ago at
this date. Wholesale and Jobbing business
naturally tend toward quiet at this time,
and salesmen are very generally in from the
road. The falling off in transactions in these
branches from the normal is very" marked at
present and the tendency in . industrial lines
la still toward curtailment; instances of this
being found in the iron and steel, bitumin
ous coal, coke, lumber and cotton goods lines,
in which latter a canvass is now being made
by New England manufacturers as to the
future of production. Sentiment as to the
outlook for trade next year to very mixed.
Conditions In financial circles are etlll
slowly but quite surely approaching normal.
From the country at large, there Is reported
a continued easing up of the situation as
regards cash payments, and several cities are
practically on a cash basis,- with clearing
house certificates being cancelled and cash
iers' checks and emergency currency being
retired: but It is to be noted, that the premium
on currency is still maintained at several
large cities, and until this disappears the
normal can not be said to 'have been re
stored. The firmness of call and the scarc
ity of time money at New York with the
maintenance of the currency premium at 'or
around 1 per 'cent, however. Is taken to in
dicate the conserving of money supplies pend
ing the heavy first of the year disbursements.
Interior cities show more inquiry for com
mercial paper and considerable loans are
jnade on time. Commercial collections are
very slow, and as yet reflect little beneffl
from the current holiday purchases. Several
cities report enlarged ' savings banks with
drawals, presumably due. to holiday ex
A very favorable feature in the present
period of depression Is the tendency toward
enlargement of our export trade. This Is
most notable in the grain trade, and not, by
the way, entirely on the East Coast of the
country, because the movement on the North
Pacific Coast is very large and shows signs
of heavy taking of wheat, largely for the

IMPROVEMENT IS EXPECTED.
Manufacturer Look for Increased Orders
Early Next Year.
' NEW YORK, Dee. 20. R. G. Dunn & Co.'s
weekly review of trade tomorrow will say:
Holiday trade assumed normal proportions
this week, partially recovering earlier losses
in comparison with previous years, and in
staple lines there was a better movement
in response to more-seasonable weather. Al
though actual change did not occur in the
leading industries, there was a more con
fident sentiment regarding the future, num
erous inquiries encouraging manufacturers
to anticipate a steady improvement in or
ders early In 1908.
Sentiment is more hopeful at leading cen
ters of the iron and steel Industry. Increased
activity being generally anticipated after
the holidays. No further curtailment of out
put has occurred, reduction already made
proving sufficient to prevent accumulation,
and few changes were announced In quota
tions, except that pig iron in Birmingham
has sold at less than $15. Plates sell more
freely, and new permits for buildings prom- .
ise a good demand for structural shapes.
Plants jre resuming that were closed, and
less delay in securing Davment is rinilne
more readiness to accept specifications.
J no loss in bank clearings still denotes a
heavy falling off of payments through the
banks, total bank exchanges this week at
all large cities in the United states being
$1,959,924,048. a decrease of 409 per cent
compared with last year. The loss con
tinues very heavy at New York. Boston,
Philadelphia and San Francisco and some
what larger at Chicago and Baltimore than
in preceding weeks. Minneapolis and Kan
sas City again report small gains.
