BY WAY OF OGDEN
California Produce Comes in
Round About Way. '
SOME IN BAD CONDITION
Strong Demand for Good Grapes
Which Sell at an Advance Apple
Trade I Rather Slow.
AH Grains Are Firm.
California product Is now coming to Port
land by way of Ogden. A tunnel cave-In
down the line ha necessitated the round
about shipment. Several cars arrived by
the new route yesterday and for the next
week It U likely that all the heavy ship
ments will come that way. Express mat
ter will be transferred around the scene
of the trouble.
yesterday's receipts, which was the first
of the delayed produce to come in, consist
ed of one car of weet potatoes and two
cars of grapes. Other shipments on the
way include oranges, lemons and apples.
Of tbe crapes received, one car was in
first-class condition and the other was in
a bad way. As all former receipts of Cal
ifornia crapes had cleaned up, the market
-was in fine shape lor cood Tokays and
Malagas, and the best sold readily at i--
per crate. For the pocr offerings there
was practically no demand, thouph some
crates of thrs class were worked off at
25 cents. The market was again liberally
supplied with local concords, but buyers
showed little interest in-them at 10 cents a
The apple market is a disappointment to
the trade. Stocks are large and of good
quality but the demand is Indifferent. Some
choice Hood River Jonathans sold yester
day at the low price of $1.50 per box.
Several cars of California apples are in
transit, which will serve to further depress
the market for Oregon fruit.
Some choice Cornice pears were received
yesterday and were offered at $1.50. There
is a fair supply of Winter Nellis pears on
the street, which are held at $1.25 1.00
MWKKF Bt'YS WASHINGTON HOPS.
Bird, of London. Scaring Cmft!ffninent
Conditions In "ew York.
No trading was reported In the Oregon
hop market yesterday, but McXeff Bros, se
cured 150 bales in Western Washington.
Some or the English dealers are again
in ths market for consignments. It 1 re
ported that George Bird, of London, has
lately obtained 40 bales in Western Wash
ington at 20 cents advance. Several weeks
ago Bird got a number of lots In Oregon
on IS cents advance and It is understpod
he Is now figuring on other lots on the
Califorunia aires continue to report a
very strong feeling In that state, because of
the Improved demand.
Foreign hops are stronger at New York
City, fancy Bohemian being quoted at 75?
M cents. Germans are held at 66T0 cents.
Of the New York State market, the Water
vine Times, of November 5. says:
The market is somewhat quiet here, but
prices are Mill firm on the bent grade.
It is estimated that out of the 3...O00 hales
grown in this state this year, fully -J.
havt passer out of growers' hands. 1 tils
Is a very unusual condition in the hop in
dustry In this state. The quiet state of
the market cannot be wondered at witn
stocks o close v sold out. A sale took
place here yesterday of 115 bales grown by
Fred Terry. The price paid cannot be
learned. A few good lots, though small,
have been sold within the week at 33
STRONGER FEFIJNQ rN GRAIN.
Full Prices ar Being Bid for Wheat In
There was not much business passing In
the local wheat market yesterday, but the
undertone was firm. Reports from Eastern
Washington points were of mnch strength,
with buyers bidding up eagerly for the few
lots offered. The demand In that section
was supposed to come from Interior millers,
Oats are quoted strong at $29. The de
mand 1 no greater than It haa been for
some time past, but receipts are unusually
small. The feeling In the barley market
ts also firm.
JLocai receipts, in cars, were reported by
the Merchants' Exchange as follows:

C A LI FO RN I A Bl'TTKR Ofc MARKET.
Offered to the Trade at a Eow Price Eggs
Scarce and Firm.
The butter market, so far a the city
made product is concerned, is holding Its
own. with the supply and demand about
equal, but there is a weaker feeling in the
market for outside creamery, owing to re
ceipts from a number of points that do not
usua'ly market their butter here. Califor
nia butter is also being put on the market,
a Petaluma concern offering creamery to
the local trade at 65 cents., delivered.
The egg market presented no new features-
Only a few small lots of Oregon
eggs came in, and these were held at 40?
42 S cents.
Chickens were In over supply and very
weak, sales being made at 13 and 13 Vi
cents. Turkeys were firm at the former

OVERSTOCK OF GRAPES

Potatoes Weaken on Arrival of
Eighteen Carloads Eggs and
SEATTLE. Wash., Nor. . (Special.)
The delay of fruit shipments from Cali
fornia has no effect on stocks hore, as two
boats have arrived during the last 24 hours,
both of which brought excessive cargoes of
grapes. The market is swamped with
grapes and prices were as low as SO oents a
box today. Another boat will not be In
until the last of the week and dealers look
for the market to pick up a little as soon
as present stocks are cleaned up.
It was a buyer's potato market today, as
18 carloads arrived, most of them from the
Spokane and Pa louse districts. Onions are
firmer on light receipts and a good demand.
Good Jonathan apples sold as low as Z.2&
Columbia River shippers 'today sent In 100
wild ducks, which were quickly snapped
up. No turkeys arrived. The market, how
ever, was stiffer, as butchers were offering
up to 30 cents for fancy "dressed stock.
Twentyight cents was offered for Satur
day delivery. Eggs and butter wra weak.

NEW TORK. Xov. 9. Dealing, In tocks
diminished slrnlflcantlr today, to tha accom
paniment of a vuatamed higher rata tor call
loana la tha money market. It la evident the
financial powers are agreed that conditions
are not propitious for pushing speculative op
erations In securities. There was no evi
dence of heavily consetsed operations for the
purpose of churning the market Into activity,
which have been a feature of stock market
dealings for many weeks.
More attention was given today to money
market developments than to the stock mar
ket. The further rise In the sterling ex
change rate at Paris pointed to a movement
of capital from Paris to London, which was
helping to relieve the situation at the letter
point. The continued demand for foreign
-exchange here kept alive the supposition that
additional gold shipments might be com
' manded by London, although none was an
nounced. Yesterday's reports of large buying of cop
per for export had tost their effect on the
copper Industrials and the general market
lacked that sustaining influence. The per
sistent pressure on Pennsylvania since the an
nonucement of stock subscription rights to
stockholders makes a bad augury for the re
ception to be tendered to further effort to
raise capital. New Tork Central moved in
sympathy with Pennsylvania. There were
sharp changes In some of the specialties.
