WHEAT OFF 4 GENTS
Northwest Affected by the De
BUYERS OUT OF MARKET
Advance in Freights Means lower
(irnin Prices in the Futures Bar
ley Pealers Offering on Basis
of $23.50 to $34.
The demoralization In the Eastern wheat
market has put values In this section down
about 4 t-enta In the past week. There Is
not enough buin-ss being done In futures
to establish a market, but It Is figured the
new crop now Is worth only 75 or 7 cents
track for export. No bids are being made
and no buying will be attempted until con
ditions In the distributing markets become
settled, tut It Is not likely the farmers
would accept these prices at the present
The contracting done to date has been
mostly for early shipment and a premium
of 1 or 2 cents has been given over the
quotation for late deliveries. It la said the
early wants of dealers have been practically
Freights are steadily advancing and steam
ers are niw asking SO shillings. These rates
will of course have to be taken Into con
sideration in buying wheat tor later ship
menu Yesterday's cablea reported the Eng
lish markets dull. Cargoes could not be
sold over 37 shillings.
Karley buyers are making bids In the
country on the basis of 23.504fi4 landed
here, but sellers' Ideas are above these fig
ures. l.oral receipts. In cars, were reported by
the Merchants' Exchange as follows:
Wheat. Barley.FIour.Oats. Hay.
Reason to date.
DEMAND FOR NEW CALIFORNIA HOPS
Trade Is inverted From Oregon by Reports
of Conditions Here.
The Eastern demand for lUlll hop contracts
in Oregon has aimoat ceased, but there is a
good Inquiry In the California market. This
condition la due to the reports sent out un
wisely by certain Oregon dealers of the
presence of vermin In the Oregon yards,
from which the Inference was taken that
the crop would be of low quality. It has
had the effect of shutting off orders here
and turning the business to California. In
t his state 1!0 or 21 cents was all that could
be obtained, but in the Sonoma section yes
terday 22 cents was freely bid. In the Sac
ramento section the few unsold crops were
also firmly held.
The spot market was lifeless In this state
In California there was a sale of a lot of
liO bales of l!"lls at 2J cents.
English cables were weak. London hop
dealers' trade circulars, dated July 1 to 3,
received by mall, say of the English mar
ket: Wild. Neame & Co. Business continues
very quiet and quotations are somewhat
easier. Reports from the plantations are
hardly satisfactory, sunshine and warmer
nights being needed for development of the
Manger Henley Trade contlnuea quiet.
Reports from the plantations are not very
encouraging, vermin blight being too much
In evidence and continued washing Is neces
sary to keep It in check. The cool night
temperature la also against the development
of the bine.
W. H. H. LeMay There is still a small
demand for Immediate consumption, but It
Is hardly enough to keep prices firm, and
some holders are willing to accept a little
lower price to clear out.
AMERICA FRI IT8 IX ENGLAND.
Irge Increase in Apple Importations This
Reporting on the English market for
American fruit. Consul Horace Lee Wash
ington, of Liverpool, writes:
"Raw apples were Imported into the
United Kingdom for the four months end
ing April 30. 110. to an aggregate value
of $3.5S2.324; for the corresponding four
months of 1911. $2.727,.VJ7, and for the
same months In 1912. $4,178,771. It will be
seen that there has been a very decided in
crease In the importation of raw apples In
11H2 as compared with the two preceding
years. The Increase Is attributable in part
to the absence of the normal rainfall in
"A general Impression appears to exist
among the trade In dried fruit that the
prospects for this year are not very en
couraging, owing partially, to trade depres
sion caused by the strikes at the com
mencement of the year. and. further, to
the lateness in delivery of last year's crop,
which, instead of arriving before Christ
mas, was delayed, and Its arrival In the
-arly part of the year, after the close of
the holiday season, reduced the sales, with
the consequence that there Is still a good
suppl of the old fruit crop on the mar
ket. This particularly applies to the sup
ply of prunes.
"Plums or prunes are the particular
articles In the dried fruit line imported
from the United Stater and If the report
which is now current In the local market
that the French crop Is small this year
proves correct, there Is prospect of a good
demand in these lines.
"The demand for apricots each year Is
fairly good and steady, whereas the same
could not be said for pears and peaches,
which Is limited and uncertain."
HOT WEATHER CHECKS EGO LAYING
Supply of Hen. Therefore. Becomes Larger
and Price Weaken.
The hot weather has checked the laying
of eggs, and the falling off In receipts has
steadied the market.
For the same reason poultry receipts
have Increased. A large supply of chick
ens wai carried over by Front-street deal
ers lat night. Prices were weak all
The dressed meat market Is firm for
good quality of veal and pork. It Is dan
gerous to ship meats this weather and
dealers advtse the holding back of shlp
n nu until the temperature becomes
' Tlie butter market was active and firm
.t the advance. Cheese sold at unchanged
Sirn.Y OF FBI IT RUNS SHORT
several Lines Entirely Cleaned Cp on Front
Street Plenty Today.
Fruit stocks ran low on Front street yes
.erday. The big demand, caused by the
ml weather nnd a wreck down the val
,ey. resulted In a complete cleaning up of
several necessary lines. The supply of
watermelons gsve out early In the day. Sev
eral cars of mixed fruits arrived late In
the afternoon and a number of - cars cf
melons will arrive this morning.
Peaches were firm on the advance In
' California, and the best stock brought w

STEEL TRADE GOOD
Increasing Demand for Output
Helps Stock Prices.
GENERAL TENDENCY IS UP
Favorable Crop Xcws and Greater
Ea.se in the Money Market Are
Factors That Add to the Better
ment of Trading Sentiment.
NEW YORK. July 18. Stocks manifested
Increasing firmness today after early un
certainty. Trading was as dull and per
functory as that whicn marked recent op
erations. Favorable crop news. Improve
ment In the steel Industry and Increasing

combined to creat mild optimism.
The increasing demand for the output
of the steel mills at higher prices was
nerhaDs the most potent factor. Equipment
orders are coming along steadily, and thlr
fact is beginning to find reflection in tn
stocks of the companies benefited.
