In the grower for choice gnadM. It was be
Itered his order was for fully 1IOO bales.
No deals wers known to- havs been conclud

The only business reported during the day
was the purchase by MrNff Bros, of four
!ts of frrfon. asarea;atnr "OO bales, at
ll'3 to 2 cents. Tbfs are the first pur
coae frura growers known to bar been
ma'ie this seavin on Eastern orders.
It has been evident from tha tone of
Kastern letters Is fir received that the deal
ers of th East were dlsposd to keep out of
the market as Inns; as possible and thereby
f nn-e prlres to a low er level. There Is
Jlftle duht that many of them hare sold
Orecon hops short, probably to the extent of
Z per cent of the rrop. Home Western deal
ers hare also rnnc rnto the it me. Including
a large Salem operator, and deals hare been
made for late shipment as low as 12 and
13 tents delivered.
hhould a good fnrelcn demand develop. It
Is reasonable to believe thertwiU be a spurt
of activity on the part of the shorts to
rer that win furnish a healthy stimulus to
the market. It msy be that the export or
ders now in are the beginning- of the mnva
srent. At any rme. it Is unusual for the
XniclHh to buy pacific In September, and
this would Indicate that extensive require
ments axe to be met this season.

writes Bing. "The world's yield of l.0e.
OAO cwt. nearly correponds to a year's hop
consumption. Ptocks in the broweries are
very small. The German market Is entirely
bare of any stock. The first arrivals of the
new crop have been sold at Mks. ft tf 1)4)

hands are exceedingly short Blng thinks

presence of this year's rather good average
The vVarerrlMe Times says of the New
"We learn of a few sales hereabouts at

Heavy shipments of cattle from points In

caused a temporary lull In th irarkct and
prices sagged toward he end. In the
butcher cattle pens the transactions wore
very heavy and, considering the deluge of

of bulls ss a whole did not improve during
