Oregon Hop Crop Estimated
at 65,000 Bales.
Kcports lrom Kngland Show Crop
in rvor Shape, but German Crop
. Is Unknown Qauntity and
May Change Market,
According to Julius Pincus. the recent
rains have added 5000 bales to the hop
crop, beside improving; the quality. Mr.
Ptnous says that while the crop will not be

While there are no changes In prices and
no deal orflolally reported there are a num

contracts to on another. The dealers will

In to bull the Oregon prloe. such as bad
continental hop reports. Is being withheld.
"With tSie condition of the English crop
generally styled as baa. the German mar
ket Is the one doubtful feature. Bullish
catolea have been received, but New York
advices are that the crops are In good shape
and but slightly Infected.
A Sacramento grower yesterday estimated
the Oregon crop at 6 5, 000 bales: California.
eS.OOOHJ70.Ono bales, and Washington. 15.000
90.000 bales.
Liverpool advices ana that Paclflo Coast
hops are selling at IS cents a pound, which
would be equivalent to cents on the Coast.
Tho fcea-ry stocks of old hops held In Eng
land are tending to keep the market down.
The following representative reports are
taken in part, from the Kentish Observer:

Several ahtppera personally brought In 11
cara of cattle yesterday. Other excellent ship
ments were heavy horse, goat and sheep Mock
that arrived on the market In better condi
tion than anything of the kind has yet ar
rived at the yards.
Good quality lambs were In etrong demand
yemerday and almost outshone the hog de
mand, which was not quite so strong with the
full market. Fancy hogs were atlll rare
There were over 1000 head of cattle reported
at the yards., the actual figures for all arrivals
being: Cattle. 1090; sheep, 497; goats 245
hogs, SO, and horevs, 58.

Tomatoes also to Be Had at Bargain Prloe a.
Other Fruits Fair.
With the market absolutely glutted with
watermelons, the price dropped to 1 VI cents
yesterday afternoon and was very weak.
Indications are that the price -will break
to a greater degree today. Over 6 cars of
watermelons, are on- sidings and practically
unsold, and unless some of the surplus can
be worked off In the country . or to Puget
Sound, local dealers look like being nipped.'
At the price ruling. It Is said, the dealers
are selling at bare cost.
Another bargain sale is being conducted
In tomatoes. Front street still has a quan
tity of hothouse tomatoes, and California
Is rushing up the open air variety. Prices
on hothouse were weak yesterday at 608
cents, while Callforntas went from 80075
Small berry receipts were light, logans
being away under the demand. Wild black
berries fell on a receptive market at 8
cents and heavy arrivals of apricots kept
firm at existing prices. Oregon peaches
sold at 60 cents, mainly owing to poor pack
ing. The last of the gooseberries brought
6 cents, an advance of one oent.
Raspberries were heavily In demand and
the price jumped to 81-50 This Is a purely
inflated price and with heavy arrivals today
will return to the normal. Strawberries 2
Heavy arrlvala of bananaa are promised,
but the banana market is kept firm by
agreement. New potatoes wobbled a little
and closed 1 lighter, final sales being
around 2 cents.
Ninety Cents Falla to Tempt Them with
Better Rate la Proepect.
Stray lota of wheat are beginning to move
Into th warehouses, according to a promi
nent local exporter, but the .farmers are
merely storing the grain, and are not pre
pared to consider any selling proposition on
ths basis of prices now current. Dealers
Intimate they are prepared to pay 90 cents
in the country for blue-stem, and 85 cents
for ejus. Thla would be equivalent at
tidewater to 21.04 for bluestem and 98 cents
for club.
Small quantities are being picked up at
these prices, but they are purely for local
use. In ttve main the farmer holds for 81
in the country, and' while the dealers ad
mit this price may be reached later In the
season, they contend the market will open
in tho course of the next two weeks at a
basis of 85 90 cents In the country.
A large grower In town yesterday made
a different contention, holding ...that the
farmers were somewhat unwise In maintain
ing the present high price. He named 95
cents as the country price at which he was
prepared to place his wheat for sale.
On some actual deals yesterday club was
quoted at 81.16.
Corn prices have dropped slightly. Corn
may be obtained around $36. although no
sales are being reported.
'The Merchants Exchange reporta the fol
lowing hay and cereal receipts:

Last Week 10 8 23 6 1-4
Quantity Coming in Not Sufficient to Supply
"There is practically a hay famine in
Portland," said a leading exporter yester
day. The same gentleman Intimated that.
In his private capacity as a consumer., he
would be willing to pay almost any price
for good grade timothy, while being com
pelled to pay practically top prices for the
poorer grades.
About a car dally Is being reported by
the Merchants' Exchange, and this Is at
once taken up. No dealers have any stocks,
all holding themselves olear till the begin
ning of next week, when Valley and East
ern Oregon will commence to move. With
the number of farmers anxious at first to
sell, a rapid break Is predicted at the
commencement of the season. The price
now cvrrent Is the highest ever known.
Poultry and Eggs High.
Poultry still retains Its somewhat high
price, and with the demand being in excess
of sujply. appears likely to continue. The
chances are the present week will close
with pr)cea unchanged.
Eggs still continue at the top of the
market, a feature of the day being a heavy
shipment to Seattle that was almost exact
ly balanced by contra receipts from Elliot
Dressed meats are favored by cool weather
No carryover Is reported, and dealers ex
press themselves as satisfied with present
prices. With heavy stock arrivals, how
ever. It Is not unlikely prices may be ehad
ed a trifle today or tomorrow.

Speculative Movement Halted
by Future Uncertainties.
Steel Trade Satisfactory, but Cop
pers Weaken Perceptibly on
Xew York and London
NEW YORK. July 14 Operators were
confirmed In their Inclination to refrain
from dealing today by the Inconsequent
and Indecisive movement of the market for
several days past. Influences halting the
speculative movement were found In the
news from the crop regions. Basic confi
dence in the profitable outcome of the
Harvests remained strong and underlies the
determination with which stocks are held
by present owners.
Such Incidents as todays panic among the
bears In wheat are sufficient, however to
deter speculators from committing them

Zul. ,Clp 8Care are not an impossibility,
ine fright of the wheat bears had as a basis
the reDorts of rain In the Winter wheat
region which might prejudice the early de
livery of the crop being harvested and
crowd the short. In July. In which option
the flurry centered.
in the corn market, however, the good
crop news served to force the price lower,

The steel trade advices were highly fa
vorable and an attempt was made to use
the sudden departure of J. p. Morgan from
England for New York as a presage of fa
vorable developments at the coming quar
terly meeting of the United States Steel
directors, to ' be held on the last Tuesday
of the month.

New High Record.
Adverse Weather Reports Send
Prices Bounding Upward hnd
Bullish Sentiment Is
Xoted In Pit.
CHICAGO. July 14. Wheat, for July de
livery, advanced today to $1.27, a new high
record for the sea sort, and a gain of 7c
over the previous close. The sensational
advance kept the wheat pit in a flurry of
excitement throughout the session, although
the actual amount of trading in July was
not large.
Shorts were' exoeedlngly urgent In their
demand for July wheat, but offerings at
no time were liberal.
The demand was based on weather con
ditions In this country- Rains wero re
ported In Kansas and Nebraska, which will
cause additional delay In harvesting, and the
official forecast predicted showers and thun
derstorms generally over a large section of
the wheat-growing states for tonight and
tomorrow. This will ' further retard the
movement of the new crop.
At the same time many reports were re
ceived from Illinois. Kentucky and Ten
nessee claiming that wheat In shocks was
sprouting as a result of the wet weather.
The market opened strong with prices
lower to lV4c higher. July being at 1.20T4
to $l.:ii.4. Within the first half hour the
price had been forced up to $1.25 Vt by leaps
of Vc to lc between sales.
At this point some of the leading longs
seemed to have wheat for sale and as a
result the price receded about 1 cent. Sen
timent In th pit was extremely bullish all
day and in the final half hour the price
shot upward and failed to atop until it had
touched $1.27. The market closed excited
and strong, with prices almost at the top.
July being at $1.261 4 1.24.
An advance of more than lc in tho price
of the July delivery was the feature of
trading in corn. At the close prices were
4c higher to V4c lower, compared with the
previous close.
Tho 7c-Jump In July wheat detracted from
activity In the oats market, trading being
dull nearly all day. Prices closed Vic lower
to ViffjMic higher than the final figures yes
terday. Provisions were strong all dav. At the
close prices, were 7V4flOc to 17V.(gi20c
hlglior than yesterday.
