Foreign Hop Markets Are
Steadily Gaining.
Weather In England Is Favorable
for the - Spread of the Pest.
Damage to the New York
Crop Confirmed.
The foreign hop markets, like those on
this side, are gaining In strength. ' The
following cable was received yesterday by
Klaber, Wolf ft Netter from their Lon
don branch office:
"Market somewhat firmer. Vermin have
increased slightly.'
The weather in England yesterday was
favorable for the propagation of 'vermin,
thunder storms prevailing, according to the
dalty report of the Associated Press.
Market conditions in England up to May
28 were stated by the Kentish Observer as
"Business in hops Is almost at a stand
still, consumers only buying for actual ne
cessities. Stocks are so small that any
thing like a demand would much enhance
Quotations, but with the limited trade they
only remain fairly firm. Continental and
American markets are very slow, with un
altered prices. There is little demand for
the recent arrivals of Pacific Coast hops."
English hop factors' trade letters just
received by mail say in part:
Mangy & Henley. London A quiet and
steady demand continues for present re
quirements. The few hops left are being
gradually absorbed.
. TV. II. & h. Le May. London Since the
warm weather set in. orders from con
sumers are coming more freely. The stocks
are in the narrowest compass. The warmer
weather has caused the bine to make good
progress. Business has been hindered by
the holidays, but there is a little more
doing In last season's hops at the reduced
rates. Fine older dates sell readUy at late
prices, as they are scarce.
Telegrams from New York further con
firmed the reports of damage to the crop
of that state by frosts. The most dam
age was said to be in Franklin County.
The Waterville Times of June 3 says of
conditions In that section:
"Hops are not doing very well here just
at present. The past week has been cold
and rainy and this, with the- effects of
the late frosts, has not helped the growth
of the vine. Some report that "the con
tinued unfavorable weather is turning the
weaker vines yellow. Unless we have
better growing weather the . hop crop
here will not be up to its usual standard."

September 1 to April 30 were:

Movement Is Good for This Season of the
The movement of California deciduous
fruits is reported by the California Fruit
Distributors as follows:
Cherries There are a few cherries still
going forward from Placer County, but the
bulk are going from San Jose. The crop
at San Joso Is much lighter than last year
and probably there will not be as many
by 50 cars shipped as in 1909. Fruit con
tinues to be of excellent quality.
Apricots There has been a marked im
provement in the shipment. Cool weather
during the last two or three days has again
retarded ripening, but by the middle of, next
week the movement will be heavy and will
continue until the close of the season.
Peaches The Alexander is practically the
only variety that has been shipped in any
quantity. Triumphs have made their ap
pearance, but will not cut much figure for
several days yet. Probably they will be
coming in in fairly good shape the latter
part of the week, as will be the case also
with Hales.
Plums Shipments this last week have
been of fair volume and consisted almost
entirely of CI y mans. A few "of the better
varieties are coming in now, but will not
ha of any amount for another week or ten
drapes continue to look well, except in
some of the earlier districts; where a slight
damuKC was done by three days of very
hot weather at the beginning of the week
and in Fresno the raisin crop has been in
jured about 10 per cent.
The weather Is reasonably cool and good
for the development of fruit. Last Satur
day, Sunday and Monday, however, were
very warm, the mercury In some places
reaching 110. The result was the burning
of many Clyman plums and checking of the
growth of both this variety and apricots.
Considerable damage was done which will
certainly show in the output.
Straight Car of California Apricots Is Also
The second car of cantaloupes arrived yes
terday and with a strong demand good
progress was made in cleaning up the ship
ment. Cantaloupe prices on the street
ranged from $3 to $4.50 per crate. A
straight car of apricots was received and
they were in good condition. The fruit was
packed in picking boxes, containing about
li crates each. They were quoted at $1.25
1.50 per box. Plums were on sale at $1
per box.
The strawberry market was firm. 'Clark
seedlings sold up to $1.00 on the farmers'
market and were quoted at $1.75 on the
street. Cherries were plentiful. ' Some fine
Royal Anns were received from The Dalles
and were quoted at 121; cents a pound.
Other Oregon cherries ranged from 4 to 10
cents a pound. California cherries were held
at $1 per box.
Vegetables generally were steady. Ore
gon telephone peas were in demand at 6
cents. Red onions were firm at $2 per sack.
There was .some movement in old potatoes
at GOfjtt5 cents a sack.
Priie Show 'o Change Oat and Barley
Are Dull.
There were no changes in the local grain
situation yesterday. A little business was
passing in the wheat market at the prices
that have prevailed for several days past,
but oats and barley were still very quiet.
Local receipts in cars were reported by
the Merchants' Exchange as follows:

Strociar Demand for Country Produce.
The demand for country produce of all
hinds was brisk. Chickens, especially, were
active. Hons cleaned up at VJ$19H cents,
with a few sales at 20 cents. Dressed meats
were firm at Monday's price.
IS utter Is moving freely and there is no
surplus on the market yet. Cheese Is firm,
with local stocks light.
Beet candled eggs were quoted at 26H

Market Soars With Agreement
on Rate Dispute.
Selling to Realize Takes Away Some
of the Advance, but Toward,
the End the Best Prices
Are Realized.
NEW YORK. June 7. The stock market
greeted the hews of the agreement on the
rate dispute between the Government au
thorities and the railroad executives with
a spasmodic recovery of the declines of
several days past. The excess of specula
tive operations for a decline as a result of
the conference was demonstrated.
The demands of uncovered shorts were so
urgent and imperative as to cause on op
portunity for a jump in prices rarely
equalled for wildness and disorder.
Alter the first scramble of the Dears to
cover shorts, there ensued a more conser
vative view of the situation, and it was not
until the end of the day that prices rose
again to the best.
Difficulty of appraising the newsrew out
of the stress laid in the previous1 specula
tion ' on the immense importance to the
railroads of the Increased freight rates
which the Government was opposing. The
demoralization in stocks caused by the in
junction against some percentage of the pro
posed increases contrasted with the violent
rebound caused by the proposed postpone
ment by the railroads of all increases and
their voluntary submission to the terms of
the pending law. The explanation cam
partly from the fact of the greatly ex
tended short interest which . was forced to
buy stocks but which, hoped to do so at a
further decline.
Negotiations, it was said, for the sale of
$15,000,000 of Michigan Central bonds in
Paris, which had been suspended, would
be resumed and this assertion was of more
effect on sentiment than yesterday's news
of the sale of J25.000.000 of Southern Pa
cific bonds in Germany, in spite of the rate
The unsettled tone which intervened after
the opening Jump was much emphasized
by the natural tendency to realize profits
on so- considerable a rebound. This selling
proceeded to such lengths, especially in St.
Paul, as to arouse suspicion of renewed
liquidation on account of an important cap
italistic group.
The agreement made by the railroad exec
utives to leave the rate increases to the
operations of the new railroad law shifted
sentiment again to the progress of that
measure. "
Bonde were Irregular. Total sales, par
value. $2,768,000. United - States bonds were
unchanged on call.

Ideal Crop Conditions Reported
From the Spring Grain Country,
Milling- Demand Is Light.
CHICAGO. June 7- Twice today the
wheat market broke badly because the short
interest had been squeezed out In rapid ad
vances. July was more flighty than the
deferred months, fear being shown as to
the possibility of a trap in that future. The
close, however, was fairly steady at a net
loss of c to tgc Corn was a heavy
affair, even when wheat was strong, and
finished c to lc off. Oats at the end of
the session had become c to c cheaper
ana provisions were also down Rc to l'JVtC.
So sudden was the latest collapse in wheat
than ten minutes made a difference of lc
a bushel. The Immediate cause, as In a
parallel condition earlier, was that the pit
had become bare of buying -orders. More
fundamental was the fact that forecasts for
the Spring wheat district were for showers
and warmer weather, an ideal outlook. In
crease of I'd per cent in acreage seeded was
reported from three Xorth western Canadian
provinces. Crop prospects there were de
clared excellent. Demand here for cash
wheat to be milled was light. Fluctuations
In the September option were between 91c
and 92c, with the close at 91lc, a
net decline of f c
' Corn opened weak and dragged all day
September ranged from 59 c to OOc, clos
in? c lower at 594 tf59c. The cash
market was easy. Xo. 2 yellow closed at
59 & 59 C.
Country selling and fine crop prospects
were against the price of oats. Limits in
variations for the September delivery were
35&35c and 36c, with the last sales at
35 c. i.
Provisions most of the time were higher."
Pork finished &fffl2c net lower, lard 5c off
and ribs unchanged to 5gc down.
