any serious damage could occur, and we
may now consider It an assured fact that
thla year's hop crop will exceed In quality
that of the previous year and also the aver
age of the last ten years. The world's hop
crop will not only fully satisfy the con
sumption, but will leave quite a consider
able surplus for conserving purposes; there
fore, there is no doubt that we have to
reckon with very moderate prices, and a
proof that our growers are already con
vinced of this Is the fact that In countries
where early hops are available, like In
Wurtemberg. Styria and Hungary, they
are being readily parted with at exceedingly
We might Just as well save ourselves the
trauble of going Into detailing the estimates
of all the hop-growing districts, but In order
to comply with the requests of a number
of our friends we will give a short review.
The German Empire, aa the most impor
tant producer In Europe, enjoys a splendid
stand of Its hopyards; In all Its different
state, which grow hops, a larger crop Is
expected than In 1907; we estimate the
total at M4.000 xentners against 4S3.000
sentners last year, of which Bavaria alone
will hare 32.1.0OO sentners (27l.ooo. Wur
temberg 75.1X0 (S3.000). Baden 37.0O0 (30.
f"W). Alsace-Lorraine 103.OOO (P6.000), and
the North 24.000 CJO.000). The most favor
ad district seems to be the Holledau. This
eomprlses the hop lands In Upper and Lower
Bavaria, and expects on Its acreage of 10.100
hektara (about 25.000 acres) at least 140.
Ooo centners U2K.40O I. y); the few bales
which already have reached market, were
of exceptional choice quality. Estimating
for the German production of 70.iHKI.000
hektollters of beer (nearly 60.000.ooo bar
rels) the requirement of 875.000 xentners.
the empire will have a surplus for export
of 100.000 sentners.
The Austro-Hungarlan Monarchy, with an
area In hops of about 25.000 hektars (1
hktar equal to nearly IV acres) expects
830.000 xeninere. against 290.000 xentners
last year. Of this quantity Bohemia alone
will have 2SO.000 sentners. against 211.000
last year. The prospects are especially
favorable In the famous districts of Saax
and Auscha; the quality promises to be en
Of other hop-producing states on the Eu-
Mgropean continent France expects about the
wim quantity aa last year. Belgium and
Holland perhaps 40.000 xentners more, Rus
sia, however, about that much less. The
total production of the European Continent
may therefore b put down as 1.147,000 xent
ners as agairst last year's 1.014.OOO sent
ners. This excess of 133.000 xentners would
not cut much of a figure, but as England
expects at least 100,000 xentners more-than

to official returns, have raised In 1007
F.20.OOO xentners of hops, of which fully
1OO.00O xentners wen shipped to Great
Britain. The estimates for 1908 vary great
ly: but If we strike the average of -the dif
ferent seemingly conservative estimates, we
arrive at a quantity of about 42O.0OO sent
ners. which means 100.000 xentners less

an export business to America. The export

not forgetting Australia, with 12 to 13.000
sentners. we arrive at the total from the
morld's hop crop of 1908 of around 2,000.000
sentners of 50 kilogrammes, or 110 pounds
each, which, sgalnst 1.929.000 sentners In

WEAK CXDERTONE IX SPITE OF RAISE
Conditions Become More I'nsettlrd la the
Local Butter Market.
Conditions In the local butter market are
somewhat unsettled. 8everal of the city
creameries that have held back to the 30
cent quotation, yesterday advanced to 81 V
cents, and the two largest Valley producers
have raised to the same price. This puts
all the leading brands on a parity and to
all appearances Indicates a firm market.
Back of this firmness, however, are cer
tain factors that are likely to undermine
Its strength. While there is something of
a shortage now. which In certain quarters
Is rather acute, the make Is Increasing to
a noticeable degree, and that It will con
tinue to Increase from now on Is to .be
taken tor granted. The Puget Sound mar
kets, according to the latest reports, have
been weakened by the receipt of a fresh
supply of Eastern butter and. It la feared,
may cease to be a buyer of Oregon butter.
Eastern butter la also coming Into thla
market more plentifully and Eastern dealers
are making renewed efforts to place stock
A year ago similar conditions prevailed In
the local Held and the creamery men. by
holding the prlca up too long, brought on
a flood of butter from the East with dis
astrous consequences. They are not likely
to pursue the same course this season.
Therefore, when stocks begin to pile up a
backward movement In the price can be

HOP PICKING BROWS VP LIGHT
Yields Are Not Coming Down as Well as
Tard reports received yesterday were to
the effect that hops are coming down
lighter than expected. Picking will be
general all over the state today, aa many
of the larger growers will begin thrlr har
vest this morning. A few will not start
until Saturday or Monday In order that
the hops may ripen fully.
fntll we get more specific reports as
to the yield." said Herman Klaber yes
terday, "we are not Inclined to reduce our
estimate for Oregon below 90.000 to 100.000
"Reporta are coming from the East of
offers by dealers as low as 8 cents deliv
ered to brewers, which means that the
dealers expect to cover their short salea
at about 6 cent.".
Foreign cables received by Klaber, Woir
Netter yesterday were as follows: "Lon
don market closed dull with less Inquiry-"
"German market Is declining." "Bohemian
market closed dull with less Inquiry."
Pfelater Wustl. of Saax, write to Kla
ber. Wolf A Netter under date of August
22 thst the Austrian crop Is estimated at
330.000 centners, of which Bohemia will
produce about 260,000. They add: "There
are 25,OQ4 hectara (37.500 acres.) In hops
in Austria. Mostly favored are the yarda
of Saas and Auscha. On account of the
greatness of the world's crops and the
large stocks In brewers' hands, prices of our
hops will probably be a little lower than
Otto Heller, of Prague, sends to the firm

PEACHES HOLD STEADY IN PRICE
Receipts Are Large and the Demand Ac
tiveCantaloupes and Melons Weak.
Another big lot of peaches came In yes
terday, mostly small In slxe. Prices held
the same as on Tuesday. 30 to 70 centa,
with the bulk of sales at 50 cents. The
demand was strong and nearly all the ar
rivals were moved. Large receipts are ex
pected again today.
There was a good demand for grapes
and the market was steady. Tokays sold
at 81.60 and Muscats and Malagas at II 23.
Local grapes sold around 75 cents for the
most part. A car of California grapes waa
due, but failed to arrive. Cantaloupes and
watermelons were weak.
Ranch Eggs Are Very Scarce.

for both ranch and Eastern stock, and
prices were firm

Hops Light, bnt of Fine Quality.
CANBT. Or.. Sept. 9. (Special.) The
hop crop In Canby, Barlow and Macksburg
districts will not bale out over one-half
that of last year. With some of last year a
yards Dlowed ud entirely, others reduced
one-half or more and that part of the yards
that is left with many missing hills, it Is
easy to see that the crop output In these
districts Is going to be light. A view of the
yards within the last day or two shows
most yards with light yields, but good
quality. Picking Is well under way, the pries
being 40 cents per box.

ADVANCE IS STEADY
But Stock Market Rise Is
Charged to Speculation.
SALES MADE IN A CIRCLE
July Earnings of Union Pacific and
Southern Pacific Show Gains
Otct liast Yer Money
NEW. TORK. Sept. 8. An unusual thing
about the current upward movement In
prices In the etock market la the freedom
with which admissions are heard of tho
part played by professionalism. Admonitions
to this effect are common In the news of
the market letters and advices sent out by
commission houses to their clients or pre
pared for general public circulation. A
small company of very wealthy capitalists
Is given credit for the Summer rise In
prlces.a and there Is no disguising the be
lief In' the large part played by manipula
tion in the advance. Even Mr. Harrlman
himself, while asserting his faith In the
value of his properties, aa reflected In the
advancing quotations, has given public ex
pression to his conviction that much of the
market activity In shares represents salea
''made In a circle."
There was little news today aa usual to
explain the upward movement of stocks.
Both Union Pacific and Southern Pacific
reported earnings for July and showed op
erating costs cut down sufficiently to more
than overcome the decline In gross earnins-n
and to establish gains over July of last
year. The Western Union statement of
earnings for the September quarter had
some effect on sentiment with Its transfor
mation of a deficit last year of $1,961,581
Into a surplus this year of $769,148. But last
year's operations of the company were
hampered by the telegraphers' strike, leav
ing the comparison of no value as a reflec
tion of business conditions In general.
The day's crop news did not quiet the
feelings of anxiety over the corn crop
Copper was lower in London. The day's
changes in the money market were not
perceptible In the quotations. Salea to real
ize profits had some slight effect In reduc
ing the days advances.

SEATTLE AVHEATDEALERS LOOK
FOR ACTIVE TRADING SOOX.
Transport Dlx Will Take Last of
Government's Oats and
SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 9. (Special.
The local wheat market Is nervous. While
there Is little trading on the exchange,
dealer feel that there should be more ac
tivity than Is apparent, and are momentar
ily expecting another buying outburst. Mil
lers do not believe that flour prices will
stay where thev are long.
The oats market is fairly strong, due
largely to the fact that the Government
transport Dlx is soon to load 1500 tons
for the Philippines. This will clean up
the Government's contracts out of last sea
on' crop. Considerable hay 1 also to go
out on the Dlx.
Fruits were weak today In all depart
ments. Large quantities of peaches forced
prices down in spite of a heavy demand.
Poultry held firm at yesterday's prices.
Veal is not quite as strong. Cooler weather
has brought out heavier receipts.
