THE 'MC1NIXG OREGONIAX, FRIDAY. JANUARY 10, 190S.
CORNER IN PRUNES
Movement Said to Be Under
Way in California.
PACKERS WILL CONTROL
Keport May Have Been .Circulated
for Its Effect on the Market.
Hop Contracts in Demand.
According to information received from
California, a movement is on foot there
among certain large packing-houses to se
cure control of the remainder of. the 1907
crop of California prunes. It is claimed in
the trade, however, that there is not enough
tock left in the hands of growers to make
the effort worth while. The carryover stock
of prunes in the Southern state is estimated
at not over 400 cars, and of this, accord
ing to some authorities, at least 350 cars
are owned by packers. It is admitted, how
ever, that the purchase by them of the re
maining 50 cars would make their position
Impregnable by the removal of the possi
bility of any cutting of prices by small out
side "holders, in other quarters, the belief is
expressed that the California prune report,
like the story of a concentration of stock of
raisins, was circulated merely for effect on
Of the situation as regards Oregon prunes
In the Eastern market, the New York
Journal of Commerce of January 4, said:
"Oregon Italian prunes on the spot are un
settled, mainly because of the pressure of
goods that were rejected by the original
buyers on account of quality. Good goods
are said to be not overplentiful. but the mar
ket for these Is affected by the competition
of poor stock, and while prices are not
quotably lower It is provable that some
concessions would be made from quoted
HOP CONTRACTING IS UNDER WAY.
Several Thousand Bales Negotiated For at
10 and 11 Cents.
Much Interest is shown In the hop trade
at the present time In forward contracts.
Figures are not available, but It is known
that several thousand bales have been con
tracted for at 10 and 11 cents for three and
five-year terms and It is reported that some
one-year contracts have been written at 0
cents. It is a Utile early for this class of
businens to open up and this leads some
to believe that contracting will be the lead
ing feature of the market for the next
month or two. Among the firms that are
reported to have closed deals In future
are T. A. LIvesley & Co., Hart & Hubbard,
O. Weldner & Co.. Kola Nels, Benjamin
Schwars & Sons and B. O. Shucking.
A fair trade is under way In spot hops,
most of the late transactions Involving
small lots for the current Eastern trade.
Very little export business is under way
and buying on short account Is light. The
demand at present is principally for choice
quality, which is very scarce. Some pur
chasers of lSM7's are reported at 7 cents
to the grower.
CHICKENS ARK IN OVEKSUPPLT.
Eggs Beginning; to Accumulate on Front
The good prices lately prevailing in the
poultry market have induced country ship
pers to flood Portland with supplies of fowls
of every description. As a result, quota
tions, particularly on chickens, have had to
be completely overhauled. The prices now
current show a decline of fully two cents
from those of last week, and as there is
no decrease In receipts, the shading of
another cent may be necessary. Other
kinds of poultry fared better than chickens.
as the supplies were closer to requirements.
It is probable that after this week there
will not be such an abundance of chickens,
as the laying season has set In and the
farmers will keep their hens at home.
Eggs are beginning to accumulate at
points along the street and the market
wears a decidedly weak aspect.
No changes were reported In the butter
FAIR DEMAND FOR FRESH PRODUCE,
Onions Firmer With Growers Holding-
ConHagnins of Potatoes.
Business was fairly good in the fruit
and vegetable line yesterday. No carlot ar
rivals were reported. Oranges were In ac
tive demand and apples also moved well.
The cheaper grades of the latter are In
lighter supply and more attention Is now
being paid to the better varieties. The
street Is almost bare of good bananas.
The onion market shows a very tirm tone.
There Is a good shipping demand, but
buyers have much difficulty In inducing
growers to part with their offerings. Job
toers are paying 2 cents in the country for
their necessary supplies. There Is a steady
movement in potatoes and shippers are
paying previous prices. A good many cars
are going to California on consignment.
Dressed Meats in Heavy Supply.
Arrivals of country dressed meats in the
last two days were by far the heaviest of
the seasnn. The receipts on Wednesday
were fully two carloads, and almost an
much came in yesterday. Pork comprised
the larger part of the shipments. Notwith
standing the heavy supplies, the demand
proved large enoush to take up all the
offerings and prices were very steadily
Firm Feeling In Wheat Market.
With the foreign and Eastern markets
higher again, the feeling in the local wheat
market was very firm yesterday. Not much
trading was reported, however. Farmers,
as a rule, take a bullish view of the sit
uatlon and, moreover, appear to be finan
cially able to hold their wheat. Oats and
barley, while quiet, were quoted firm.

MONEY EASY AGAIN
Normal Conditions Are Re
stored in New York.
FOREIGN SITUATION GOOD
Stocks Are Strong- Throughout the
Day Iron Trade Reports and
Decreases In Railroad Earn
ings Are Ignored.
NEW YORK, Jan. 9. The speculation for
the advance took on considerable animation
today. Dealings expanded decidedly in vol
ume and professional operations to lift
prices were conducted with boldness and
aggressiveness. The misgivings which
caused the setback of yesterday had been
apparently overcome. The pronounced im
provement tn the money situation was
held to be of sufficient value to overweigh
the counter considerations.
An effective factor in sqothlng the ap
prehension caused by yesterday's news of
the receivership of the Chicago Great
Western was the dissemination of reports
of 'provision having been made for meet
ing the coming maturities of note issues
of a number of railroads now of first class
credit. Efforts to obtain official confirma
tion for these reports were of no avail, and
they were left tn the form of intimations.
Their Influence on speculative sentiment
was none the less decisive, although the
stocks of the particular companies thus
supposed to have been relieved did not
all share in the strength of the market.
Some of the other factors in the day's
rise were similarly of an undefined kind,
The coalers, for Instance, rose vigorously,
buyers professing confidence that action
would be taken by Congress to defer the
operation of the Hepbnurn bill, requiring
the railroads to divest themselves of own
ership of coal properties. The operation
of this requirement had been much dreaded
as threatening an extreme effect, a possl
ble total suspension of business by the com
panies. Speculation on this ground cen
tered tn Reading and carries that stock to
the highest price it has touched since last
On the side of the money market there
were many convincing evidences of the
effective rehabilitation already effected
there. So active a demand for commer
cial paper has sprung up among money
lenders that uneasiness has subsided and
no fears are any longer felt of embarrass
ment for any solvent business. Increasing
offerings of time funds were reported at
declining Interest rates, while borrowers
were reported to show a growing disposi
tion to hold off for still lower rates.
The Bank of France reduced its official
discount rate to the level prevailing before
the crisis and the Bank of England made
so strong a weekly return that some sur
prise was felt in London that a further re
duction was not made In the official dis
count rate of that Institution. The English
DanK gained heavily In bullion holdings, al
though the French bank reported a small
decrease tn gold.
Call loans were not quoted higher than
6H per cent here and yielded from that
rate, thus Indicating the increase of facil
ities available for the conduct of specu
lative operations In the market.
The radical cut in the rate of the coun
try's Iron production, reported by the lead
mg trade -organs, and further returns, of
large decreases in railroad earnings were
ignored. The market broadened and
showed increasing strength during the day
and closed strong and animated with gains
Bonds were irregular. Total sales $1'

In commenting on the prop&ble reaction
In mercantile and industrial affairs and Its
effect on securities, Henry Clews writes
from New York, under date of January 4:
It does not necessarily follow that the
stock market should decline In sympathy
with depression elsewhere. Wall street has
often been notable for anticipating- the
future and running; counter to conditions
prevailing: elsewhere. The financial panic
began and ended before general business
felt Us effect; the security markets, there
fore, are fairly entitled to recovery while
the storm Is spending its remaining force
elsewhere. During 1907 securities showed
a depreciation estimated at over $3,500,
000,000. a shrinkage which not only dis
counted the various forms of overdoing and
mistrust that precipitated the panic, but
also the possibility of an era of business
depression. It must not be forgotten that
values were sacrificed and unduly depressed
by tremendous forced liquidation at a time
when buying capacity was completely ex
hausted. During the past month prices
have been gradually recovering; not through
speculative buyinr, Dut rrom tne natural
tendency to attain a level consonant with
the changed conditions; and tills after mak
lng full allowances for the prospects oi
which are practically sure to De encoun
The most Important fact In stimulating
recovery is the improved condition of the
money market. The currency premium has
Dractically disappeared uur oanic re
serves are rising and very soon the money
market will be working under natural In
fluences. The stringency usually exper
ienced In preparing for January disburse
ments did not materialize this year. Cur
rency will shortly begin to return from
the interior; and the lessened activity In
business, together with declining prices,
will autckly rebuild our bank reserves and
leave us with a plethora of cheap funds
greatly augmented by the additions to our
currency supply. curing ioe tasi iew monins.
