Hop Dealers Look for Resump
- tion of Buying.
Business Improves in tle Local Pro
duce Market Slack Demand for
All Kinds of Grain Eggs
Are Weaker.
The hop dealers look for a good amount
bf business this week, especially as there
w& nothing at all dohe last week. "What
ever buying takes place will probably be
of an export nature, as the Eastern trade
1im as yet shown no inclination to take
hold. As the growers maintain the Bame
firm views as formerly, no concessions from
previous prices can be expected.
A a Eastern hop man estimates, in the
Journal of Commerce, American stocks in
first hands as follows: Oregon aOTOOO, Cali
fornia 12,000, Washington 2000, New York
4000; total 38,000 bales of the crop of 1909.
In addition, about 2000 bales 1908s, 6300
fcales 1907a, and 6S0O bales 1906s left In first
hands, or a total of about 53,100 bales of
Jiops of all descriptions In growers hands In
all sections of the United States, which
compares with a total of 62,000 bales on
February 1, 1909.
The TVatervtlle Times, of February 1. re
ported the New York State market:
Conditions continue as heretofore reported
a firm market with do sales. Very much
activity cannot be looked for on this market
for the rtst of the year, even should prions
advance, for. owing to the brisk sales that
occurred her early in the season, most of
he 19U9 growth has tKjen disposed of. In
terest in this locality Is chiefly centered in a
few choice growths, for which 37 cents was
refused in. one Instance at least, when tit?
market was at its height here. The holders
of these have not weakened and are prepared
to await the future action of the market.
The English Brewers' Journal says of the
situation ;
Despite the abnormally small amount of
business transacted during the month this
market remains very firm. What purchases
bave been made, consisting only of a few
parcels, have no-t in any degree affected
jrices, which are considered to be compara
tively low, seeing that stocks are so re
markably short. Inkied, it is freely stated
in the thorough that there are not 10,000
cwt. of Kntjliah hops remaining in the mer
chants' hands -an exceptional position at
this season, which has no parallel probably
within the last HO years.
1-ondon trade circulars dated January 17
report tlw market:
Manager and Henley There is more in
qui ry ; the small quantity of hops left in
growers' hands makes it difficult for buyers
to find suitable parcels for their require
ments. W. If. and H. Lee May The hop market re

Nu Buyer or Seller of Wheat la This
Trade was practically at a standstill in
tli! local wheat market yesterday. There
w re no buyers or sellers, and it was almost
impossible to get any idea as to values.
Htuestcrn at points on the O. R. & X. Is held
p t hlRh prices, as very little remains, but
Northern Pacific blues tern is offered com
paratlvely cheap. At Seattle, the dealers
were talking us low as $1.12 for this va
riety, but that basis was altogether too low
for scllors. About $1.15 was considered a
fair price in this market.
Oats and barley were also quiet and. were
quoted at last week's tigures.

This gave the market an easier tone.
Poultry arrivals were very light and th-a

Height of Step, in Isolation to Wom
en's Health, liseussed.
PORTLAND, Feb. 6. (To the Editor )
In a communication by Mrs. Nina Larlow,
in The Oregonian of last Sunday, on "Lower
Car Steps Fight," ehe quotes Mrs. Cath
erine Maxwell, "a valued professional
nurse," saying: "Men should have taken
up th is matter long ago for the sake of
the coming children whose future might be
marred easily by imperfections bequeathed
them by these high car steps."
As I understand this statement. Mrs.
Maxwell fears that the child might be born
with some blemish, abnormality or imper
fection, as a result of its mother having
to take a high step on boarding a streetcar.
If this Is so, it is very strange that all the
celebrated medical men who have written
on y e natal Influence have not mentioned
it. They have all goue deeply into the
subject, tfut have entirely Ignored the high
car step. Probably the reason why "men
have not taken up this matter of the high
rar step." causing the child to be born
with a blemish, is because it is not true.
Climbing a ladder or walking up stairs may
be dangerous to the woman with we:tk
heart or lungs, but she can have absolutely
no effect on the unborn child. " It Is not
the high step, but the low stop which plays
havoc with the female function and ofton
causes miscarriage, as every physician
knows. A sudden step down of a few
inches is often sufficient to cause prema
ture birth ; but who ever heard of a high
Ktp doing suo.h damage? I don't know the
Mrs. Maxwell referred to. but if she made
the statement above mentioned, she Is very
far from the fact. I should like to know
where she gets ber authority. I don't be
lieve that" any reputable physician will sus
tain her In this statement.
Mrs. Larlow asks. "How about low steps
in Pan Francisco 7" Well. I have lately
visited ftin Franciseo and ought to know
how about It, as I was a constant patron
of the streetcars when there. Portland is
many years behind San Francisco in lis
streetcar accommodation, aa we41 as in
many other things useful and ornamental.
This is how this question Is settled in Snn
Francisco: They buitd a solid stone plat
form about 12 inches high alongside the
ear track and about the middle of the
block. This Is not unsightly and is no ob
struction to the "street. The people who
want to board a streetcar take their statid
on this platform. When the car comes
along, there is a perfect I v easy step from
this platform Into the car. The problem
of the high car step is solved and everybody
is happy. The oar company avoids a lot
of abuse and the people are saved a lot
of profanity and ill-temper.

Should there be any restriction or pro

And With Heavy Liquidation
. Prices Give Way.
Indications of Manipulation on the
Part of the Powerful Capitalist
Groups Money Markets
XEW YORK. Feb. 7. Extreme prostration
of demand was the conspicuous feature of the
stock "market today. Te heavy liquidation.
In consequence, made several inroads on prices.
The extent of the selling last week and of
the resulting declines1, followed by the week
end rally, had inclined speculative sentiment
to look for a steadier market. The renewed
outpouring of etocks and the determined ab
stention of effective support threw speculative
sentiment back Into depths of depression.
Buying 'was on s scale to be relied on al
ways except in periods of -downright panic,
but orders of this class today were encoun
tered only at steady concession in prices and
an attempt to bid up prices in face of the
flood was not to be detected. That every
sale -was met by a purchase goea without say
ing and that such purchases have represented
a passing of stocks from stronger to weaker
hands for some time pat Is the conviction of
a considerable body of opinion In the stock
As to the sources of liquidation there ex
ists a fairly denned division of opinion. On
one side i the view that the great capitalise
groupe. which accumulated conMantly last
year, mfeeed an opportunity to sell out at the
high prices by carrying their campaign over
into the new year, being overcome meantime
by the requirements of the money market and
the conviction that the political outlook threat
ened the welfare of the corporations. Another
view is that distribution of l3t year's accumu
lations was actually effected while prices were
held up by manipulation, following which the
lull in prices is seen with complacencv bv the
powerful capltalut groups'. If not actually fos
tered by professed alarm and by recall of cred
its through the control held over the great
banking institutions.
The securities and money market were un
disturbed. The private discount rate declined
In Paris and also in London, deaplte with
drawals of gold from the latter center for
phpment to ICurope and to South America.
The local money market was- eafy, but the
rapid fall in price of stock induced some re
call of credits, where margins were not re
paired. The day's extreme declines- ran between 4
