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 time. 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 filled. 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. Monday is Tuesday Wednesday Thursnay Year ago Reason to date.

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 bine. 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 Year. 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 1U12. "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 around. 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 prices 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 cents. in otner necmuvu -----unchanged. Berry receipts were small, as the weather was too not tor tno piccia.
