Condition of the Plant in the
Several Sections.
PUmiIjt of Kastern Orders Are on
Hand, but at Prices That Holders
Will Xot Consider Con
tracting in California.
A large number of Eastern orders for hops
are in the market, but as they are at low
prlcea 11 to 11V4 cents f. o. b. It Is al
most Impossible to execute them. The
foreign inquiry has ceased for the time.
There is a good demand for contracts, but
it is likewise difficult to do business in
this line. Crop reports from all parts of
the valley continue favorable.
.A San Francisco wire reported more dis
position to buy in that state and a letter
from Santa Kosa announced that Sonoma
contracts had been written at 14 and 14 4
cents, but none could be had now under 15
The condition of the growing crop In
England la shown by the following planta
tion reports in the Kentish Observer of
June 2:
Ashford In this narlsh the hops have
started rather Irregularly, and those that
were very wet during the "Winter are de
cidedly weak. Fly have been seen.
Ash-Next-Sandwich In spite of all vicis
situdes, the bine has made good progress
and there is every prospect of a good crop.
providing the bine la attended to in due
Blddenden The hops although backward
have grown very fast and now look fairly
well. The acreage is about the same as
last year. A few fly are to be found. Cut
tlvatlon backward and very rough and
Chilham The hops have made a good
start and the vine healthy. They are get
ting ahead of the trainers.
Canterbury Tho vine was late In start
ing, owing to the cold Spring, but once it
made a start it came away well, and since
the weather became more genial its rate
of progress has been very rapid. In ap
pearance it Is satisfactory, but there does
not look like being more than an average
Edenbrldge With a still further reduced
acreage the vine is backward and uneven.
The tyers have not got them all to the poles
Medway Valley The vine is coming away
very well in most gardens. There is not
any appearance of fly at present. The cul
tivation, taken altogether, is not good, as
the late m-eather has been very much against
getting rid or the weeds.
Teynham The young vine appears to have
started, evenly and well, and has grown very
fast during the last week, but the high
cold wind of Tuesday will bring about a
check, warm, sunny days are wanted. A
little fly has been seen.
Wlngham The hops have started very
nicely in this neighborhood, a very even run
of vine, although a bit backward, a healthy
short-jointed vine, and there Is plenty of
time to get up the strings if weather per
mits. Fly can "be found, but are very rare
at present.
Wye and Boughton Alup Mops are grow
Ing fairly and forward enough for the time
of year. Cultivation backward in some
grounds. ,
N'orthlam The vines have grown very
much lately, and partly, made up for their
late start. The produce of those low-lying
grounds which have been so over-soaked
through the last "Winter come a bit spindly.
The "Watervllle Times of June 10 said of
conditions in New Tork State:
According to reports gathered from many
of our hopgrowers there does not seem to
have been any alarming amount of dam
age done to the crop from the frost of a
week ago. The vines show growth during
the past week, which would indicate that
they are not seriously hurt. Growers be
lieve that whatever damage has been done
the hops will recover from under favorable
weather conditions.
But Demand Has Not Opened and Prices
Are Declined.
Loganberries are now coming on the mar
ket in quite large quantities, principally
from Brooks. The demand is not equal to
the offerings and prices are declining. The
best fruit eoulm be had yesterday at $1.25
J1.50 per crate. "When home canners learn
that the loganberry season has arrived, the
movement will be better. Raspberries were
also plentiful and lower at $1.50 per crate.
This is nearly she end of the strawberry
season and most of the fruit that is coming
forward is poor.
Cantaloupes were weak because of the
full supply and the cooler weather. Prices
. ranged from 2.25 to J2.75 per crate. Apri
cots sold actively and peaches were also
In good demand. Cherries showed the ef
fect of rain and many of them were not in
condition to stand shipment.
Tho street Is overstocked with California
tomatoes, which are small and of poor qual
ity. They are hard to sell at 60(3)75 cents
a box, while the fine Mississippi tomatoes
move readily at $2 a crate.
Local Market Is Quiet. With Prices Showing
No Change.
The local grain market yesterday showed
Its usual quiet tone, with small demand
and scarce offering. The prices ojjpted were
Dealers had reports of showers In the
Palouse and some rainfall in the Walla
Walla country. No rain has fallen yet
around The Dalles and the Umatilla coun
try is much in need, of moisture.

Clean-up Price of 17 Cents Fails to Move
The supply of poultry is now somewhat
in excess of local requirements. A flat
price of 17. cents named on hens yester
" day. failed to clean up the day's receipts.
Broilers were stow vale at 25 cents.
The egg market was firm and lightly sup
piled with Oregon ranch, which were held
at 27 cents.
. Butter And cheese continue In active de
mand at Arm prices.
New Pack Chinook Salmon Active.
All of the packers are now ready to sell
Spring-packed Columbia Hiver salmon on
the basis of J1.90 for flats. SI. 75 for tails and
$1.10 for halves f. o. b. Coast shipping
points. The demand In the East is active,
says the New Tork Journal of Commerce,
and orders placed subject to approval of
opening prices are being confirmed freely.
So far only a few cars of the new pack
have arrived at New Tork and these were
half pounds. The goods were taken up as
fast as received, as the demand for that
size is particularly large. There Is a brisk
demand for halves for Immediate delivery,
but little or no stock Is available.
Canned Oj titers Advance.
A sharp advance was reported In scanned
oysters yesterday, ones being lifted 10 centa
and twos 20 cents. The market Is very
firm at the advance.

Mississippi Tomatoes In Good Demand at
Senttle at 3.
SEATTLE. Wash., June 10. (Special.)
The persistent demand fof tomatoes which
has prevailed along Western avenue since
the opening of the Iresh vegetable season
slackened somewhat today, when a carload
of good quality arrived from Mississippi.
They did not last long at 42. however, and
"few were left over at the close of the mar
ket. Dealers predict that the supply will
increase shortly on the strength of ship
ments now on the way.
Three carloads of potatoes, of good qual
ity, reached the market. Prices remained
unchanged. Three carloads of oranges and
8183 crates of strawberries constituted the
larger fruit receipts.
Receipts today included also one car of
apples, one of cantaloupes and 11U7 miscel
laneous packages.

Five-dollar sheep again made their ap
pearance in the Portland livestock market

Conjectures Over What Will Happen
to the Market In the Future.
3Iouey Is Easy.
t NEW YORK, June 16. The stock market
today was abandoned to dullness and quiet
ness. Immediate developments were ignored
and the professional traders were driven to
lraming conjectures over what might prov
to be the market's response to expected
happenings in the future. It was urged that
the enactment of the railroad bill ought to
(-pen the way .for some activity in the spec'
A more influential factor in the depression
o the speculation is the contest to be
waged over the coming attempts to secure
higher freight rates. The symptoms of
acerbity among railroad executives in the
discussion of the question of retrenchmen
and the broad insinuation by the presiden
of the Great Northern that stock market
policy rather than operating exigencies gov
erns some of the propositions advanced were
taken as suggestive of the direction I
w-hich the rate contest might Influence th
stock market.
The resolution of inquiry adopted by the
Hfuse, calling for information regarding the
Aliorney-vjenerai s investigation of th
United States Steel Corporation, was dis
cussed with some show of interest, but
the effect on the market was negligible.
Kqually so was the report of the awarding
of contracts for the Panama Canal locks.
Involving large steel orders. The decrease
in the visible supply or copper did not help
the copper Industrials, the price of th a mtal
ceding again in London.

CHICAGO. June 16. Montana was the un
expected quarter from which came news that
today somewhat abated a crop scare. not.
dry weather had been officially credited for
the last several days to the Spring wheat
belt of the Northwest, but forecasts of rain
for Montana gave rise to some uncertainty.
unrelieved dryness for any continued penoa
now would materially add to a moisture def
icit which at St. Paul amounts already to
6.6 inches since March 1. The market, after
a sharp advance, receded and closed easy at
a net gain of c. Corn at the finish
was unchanged to (Jz'c lower and oats
unchanged to c higher. Last price
for provisions were unchanged to 20c up.
Northwestern houses were large buyers or
wheat here early, but following the bulge in
quotations they turned sellers during the
final hour of the session. Drouth damage to
the Volga district in Russia tended to
heighten the tension regarding the Spring
crop in tnis country. At tne same time
shipments for the week from India were re
ported at less than half what they were a
year ago. July delivery did not keep pace,
being held back by a dull and weak cash sit
uation locally. September ranged from 90c
to 91 c and closed c up at ooc.
excellent weather offset speculative buying
in the corn pit. September fluctuated be
tween 5S5Sc and 59c, closing steady
at o8c. a net loss of c. The cash mar
ket was firm. No. 2 yellow closed at 59$j
59 c.
' September oats varied from 35T4S5c to
36 c and closed at a net gain of gyc at
33 c.
Provisions advanced early, but later fell
back with grain. Final trades were 7c to
20c higher for pork, 2c to 7c higher for
lard and unchanged to 7c up for ribs.
