THE MORMXG OREGONIAX, THURSDAY, 3IAT 12, 1910.
BUYERS HOLD BACK
Caution Displayed by the East
ern Wool Dealers.
LOST MONEY LAST YEAR
Ueasons Why the Trade Is Not Tak
ing Hold Now on the Terms
Asked by Growers Late
Sales at Boston.
The uncertain attitude of the American
wool market. In view of the strength of the
Iyondon market, is a puzzle to the trade. A
treat many growers in the West think the
weakness of the market is artificial and is
Intended to put opening bay Ins on a low
basis; but there seems to be grround for the
hesitation of the dealers. That some of
them lost money on their high-priced pur
chases last year Is acknowledged, and
therefore they cannot be expected to start
the market on the same plane this year.
The backwardness of the goods trade and
the lack of interest shown by manufactur
ers are also given as reasons why the deal
ers are going slow with their purchases this
Since last Fall there has been a decided
slump In the prices of Oregon wools In the
K as tern market, and the losses of some of
the merchants are said to have been heavy.
Mall advices Just received from Boston,
dated May 6, give some particulars of re
cent sales and the current selling prices, as
"The large sale of Oregon wool in this
market the past week has made a break in
the stock of that grade of wool here which
ought to result in further sales. The Ore
gon stock of 3 009 has seemed to be a drug
in the market for months, and there are
several thousand bales loft to be sold. The
prices paid, 18c to 19 Vic, would seem to be
low enough. The last sale of any size re
ported was early In February at 10c to
2;tVc, while In December from 23c to 28c
was paid, and last August from 20c to 20c.
There Is a difference, of course, in the qual
ity of different lots of wool, but hardly a
difference of 85 per cent in staple stock
from the same state. The decline In Ore
gon has been about as drastic as In any
grade of domestic wool.
"California wool has been a poor seller
also, although occasionally transfers have
been reported. The price paid on this
week's sale of 300,000 pounds is not dis
closed, but It is safe to say that it was
low enough. Considerable unsold stock of
this kind can be found, although middle
county is In smaller supply. It is said, than
wool from other sections of that state.
Texas short wools have sold better this sea
son than either Oregon or California, and
are more closely cleaned up."
IRM MARKET Jfc'OU STRAWBERRIES.
Receipts Were Not Ho Heavy and Stocks
Clean I p.
The strawberry market was firm yester
day, for the first time this week. Receipts
were lighter, most of them were of good,
Quality and the demand was brisk.
Two orates of Mu Tabor berries were re
ceived, showing that the local crop Is ripen
ing fast. They sold at 15c a pound. There
were fair arrivals of Gold Dollars from
Yamhill county, and they went quickly at
$3.50(g3.70 a crate. Good Southern Oregon
Wilson berries sold at $2 a crate, Califor
nia stock had a wide range, Jessies bring
ing 75c to $t and Dollar berries $1.25 to
1 .50. according to quality.
Four cars of bananas were received,
mostly green, making seven cars so , far
this week. The demand for ripe stock is
California red onions are now In market
and selling at $1.50 per box and $2 per
tack. Peas cleaned up well at 45c.
Asparagus dragged, except the fancy
Among the day's receipts was a shipment
of gooseberries from Newberg. They were
quoted at 7g8c a pound.
BITTER STOCKS CLEAN W WELL.
Lighter Demand for Eggs Poultry Re
ceipts Are Increasing.
Although butter production Is large.'
stocks clean up readily and the market is
very steady. There is also a good demand
for cheese at unchanged prices.
Poultry receipts yesterday were fairly lib
eral, but the demand was sufficient to take
rare of all of them, and. although the'mar
ket was quoted barely steady, former prices
Very little interest Is shown in the egg
trade. Most of the retailers are getting
what they need direct, and the demand on
ths street Is consequently small. Receipts
are also light. The consumption of eggs
has decreased materially since berries and
vegetables became cheap.
Pressed meats are not as firm as they
were a week ago. There were large re
ceipts of veal yesterday, and some difficulty
was experienced in working off all the ar
rivals. The supply of pork is not heavy.
FIFTEEN CENTS FOR HOP CONTRACTS
Small TVmaad for Spot lfopa English
Crop and Market Conditions.
The hop trade is very quiet, but the n?ar
liet. nevertheless. Is steady. The belief that
there are coivslderaMe requirements yet to
be filled with 11K9 hops keeps holders, both
peculators and growers, in a firm frame of
mind. Very few hops, aside from the poor
est grades, are being offered now.
There is a demand for new crop contracts,
hut It is not active. A local dealer made of
fers of"15 cents yesterday.
The following cablegram was received
from Ironmonger, of London: '"Market un
changed generally. Weather too cold; there
fore, hops are backward."

MARKET IN GOOD SHAPE
Speculative Confidence in tlie Future
of Prices Is Stiffened Cop
per and Iron Conditions
NKW YORK, May 11. The persistence
wf th whinh stocks -were absorbed today
stiffened speculative confidence and formed
the tone of the market. The sources of the
nuying were not always manifest and it -was
met at times by effective selling to realize
profits on the recent advance. Such con
spicuous market leaders ns thn KTarrlman
Pacifies, Northern Paclnce, Chesapeake &
Ohio and at times United States Steel -were
nem back by realizing nolo or this iind.
The quieter tone of the wheat market to
day took the edge off the effect of yester-
dav s sudden slump. There was a realiza
tion that speculative maneuvers In that m r-
ket shared with crop conditions in the price
movement, xne atter effects of the Govern
ment crop report have allayed most of the
anxiety felt over the damage done to the
grain crops by the severe weather of late
Besides the growlna- influence of the Agri
cultural general prospect, the securities
mamer is navtne the benefit of other een
eral considerations. The passing of the de
pression caused by the succession to the
British throne brought with It a sense of
substantial relief. it was strengthened to-
uay Dy tne easing of the money markets.
The private discount rate in TSerlln wai
marked down a fraction and London cables
pointed to the likelihood of a reduction in
the ofTlcial discount rate of the Bank of
England tomorrow. In New York, demand
sterling touched $4,80.35, the lowest price
of the yer, with some subsequent recovery.
A good deal of attention was paid to the
copper market and there were many rumors
ot development in that trade. Official infor
mation of copper transactions, beyond the
periodical publication of the statistics of the
Copper Producers' Association, is not to be
had. The price of the meta'. advanced again
here, but fell back in Londcn. Last month's
large accumulation -was attributed mostly
to the leading interest an 1 lLs control -was
said to have increased sufficiently as a con
sequence to enable it to exact the better
prices from some of the recent buyers. A
somewhat better tone also was said to be
growing up in the iron market.
Brooklyn Transit wna th uuViirf- hit-i
dend rumors Wabash was affected by the
x-civai or oia rumors ot new control. Ad
pustment of the trunk line disnutA over im
port freight rates and proposed Increases in
suburban passenger rates out of New York
were factors in the day's market,
Bonds were steady. Total sales, par value,
$3,144,000. United States threes declined M
per cent in the bid price on call.

Chicago Dealers Manipulating
the Northern Market.
TO AFFECT MAY TRAQES
Disclosure of the Game Puts the
Chicago Market on a Better root
ing and AH Around Advances (
Are the Result.
CHICAGO, May 11. It was alleged today
that the comparative weakness of -wheat at
Duluth wu In part the result of manipula
tion at Chicag-o, intended to deaden the ef
fect of threatened further shipments here
from that point. After a hard struggle trad
ers emerged from the pit with prices lc
higher for the May option and unchanged
to U.c up for the deferred deliveries.
Com closed unchanged to e higher, oats
ri3hic higher to higher and provisions
oc to 10c lower.
Temporarily when the wheat market
seemed about to give way In earnest, the
most-talked-of matter was a dispatch from
Dulutfc asserting that the May and .cash
wheat trade there was sick" and that car
goes for Chicago could be gathered without
trouble. Reports of rain In the Canadian
Northwest added to the difficulties of the
bulls. Just In the nick of time for the
bulls a telegram arrived disclosing that a
prominent firm In Chicago was selling May
wheat In Duluth and delivering immediately.
The situation then Improved and the close
was firm at )1.01I.01K for September, a
net advance of 144o. May was erratic,
fluctuating $ic between trades.
Leading longs In wheat bought corn early
and sold it out late, but trade on the whole
was small. September finished steady at a
