MAY REDUCE YIELD
Blight Found in. Some of the
DUE TO TOO MUCH RAIN
Market Is Inactive Witb X Shipping
Demand and Local Trade fully
Supplied California and!
Blight, caused by excessive rmin, has been
found in some of the potato growing aim-
trie La, and this may materially reduce the
marketable supply of potatoes this year.
The blighted stock will be fed to hogs.
The market is inactive, with no shipping
demand. The supply offered for local con
aumptlon is more than sufficient for re-
aulrements, and prices are weak an arouna.
The buying price in the country ranges from
40 to 50 centa. The California market Is
low. with Kivera selling at 60 to 55 cents.
Colorado is offering the best stock at 60
centa f. o. b. and with a 20-cent rate to
Texas, the Colorado shippers have the
Southwestern trade all their own. Taken
II together, the prospects for potato grow
ers in the Northwest are not very encourag
ing this year. Only an accident to the
crop in some section or a cutting down of
the supply here can have much or an eiieci
on the future market.
General indications point to a large Amer
ican potato crop thia year. On July 1 the
condition of the 3.689.000 acres piantea in
the United States waa 88.9 per cent of nor
mal, compared with 76 per cent last year
and 89 3 per cent for the ten-year average.
Tha indicated yield Is 352,000,000 bushels or
next to the largest In the country's produc
tion record. The largest yield occurred In
1WT. when the production was 376.537.CO0
bushels. Last ycar average price of pota
toes at the farm was practically 78 cents
busbel or an advance of 22-2 cents on
the preceding year, amounting to a gain of
0 per cent In price. Between February 1,
3911. and February. 1912. Eastern potatoes
Increased 100 per cent.
The season has not in all cases been en
tirely favorable to the grower. While soil
conditions have been good, there has been a
good deal of wet weather and the season
wa late In starting.
BETTER HEATHER ORAIN DISTRICTS
Buyers Not so Sharp to Secure wheat Bar.
ley and Oats Trade.
Reports from the grain sections were bet
ter yesterday. The weather waa clearing
up east of the mountains and there was
prospect for general sunshine today. The
outlook In the valley was also brighter. As
a result of the changed conditions, estimates
of damage were reduced.
Wheat buyers were Inclined to go slower.
On Monday strong prices were -bid in some
sections, but yesterday the tendency was
rather easier. However, buyers continued to
offer on the basis of SO cents tor club and
81 cents for blues tern.
Barley of all kinds was firmly held. Hold
ers of slightly damaged grain are asking
nearly as much for it as brewing barley is
worth, but the demand now Is only for
It Is believed In some quarters that the
large proportion of feed barley this year
will operate against the price of oats, and
this is restraining speculation in the ' oats
market. Formers, however, are not mak
ing concessions, and the present offerings
are being absorbed at steady prices.
Local receipts, in cars, were reported by

1LKXTY OF FRUIT ON FRONT STREET
Demand Is Good for reaches and Grapes and
Market Is Firm.
Front street was heavily stocked with
fruit of all kinds yesterday, but the- de
mand was bfg enough to absorb nearly all
Peaches were the feature of the day's
trade. Three cars were received from Yak.
Ima, besides shipments from Southern Ore
gon. Prices ranged from 65 cents for the
best stok down to 23 and SO cents for
common fruit. There are no peaches In the
vaMey this year, and the good demand in
Southern Oregon 1" keeping most of the
peaches of that sectldn at home.
The grape market was firm. A car ar
rived from California, containing Hose Cole
man and Malagas and a few Tokays. Big
ahipments of Tokays started yesterday from
lodL Malagas and Mai vols were quoted
t .. 50 and the best Tokays at $1.75.
Other arrivals during the day were three
rare of melons, one of cantaloupes, one of
Valencia oranges and one of grapefruit,
which is the last of the season. A car of
sweet potatoes and a car of Walla Walla
onona also came in.
HOPPICKlNti NOW IN FI LL PROGRESS
Better Weather Enable Growers to Begin
Work In Earnest.
Hop pickers came forward In larger num
bers yesterday, and several yards were able
to report full crews secured. Some of the
larger growers, however, are still In need
of help. The weather was clear in the val
ley and picking waa general. Additional
samples were received, and the quality was
about all that could be desired.
No-trading was reported aside from the
purchase of a small lot of fuggles at Wood
burn at 17 cents, .
Cable advices were of quiet market
abroad and unaltered estimates of crops.
The continental yield Is placed t about
1.000.00 cwt- and most of the English esti
mates are around 320.000 cwt.

WOOPBrR.W Or.. Sept. 5. (Special.)
Whitman A Shorten, local hop buyers,
bought today the Albright lot of 35 bales
of fuegs at 17 W cents per pound.
Picking of clusters is progressing slowly
under most trying conditions. The heavy
rains of last night and today put the yards ,
ln very muddy cunultion and made it ex-1
cent ion ally disagreeable for nickers. Cool

no great damage has been done, although a
rise in temperature would probably cause
Immense Shipment ef Tasmanimn Apples.
On one trip this season the Essex carried
a record cargo of apples from Tasmania to
London. The liner, said the Shipping Ga
zette, curled the equivalent of an apple
each for the combined populations of Great
er London. New York, Paris, Chicago and
Toklo, and then had a balance over of some
207,000 in all. 19,500,000 apples. This ap
ple freight alone was worth something like
150.00O. One of the largest fruit dealers at
Covent Garden pointed out that although
this happened to be a record for one snip,
the market was accustomed to even larger
sup lies coming simultaneously from a num
ber of vessels, and that the consignment
did not in any way constitute a glut.
Poultry Cleans Up Well.
Poultry receipts were large yesterday,
but there was a good general demand. Hens
cleaned up at 13 cents and Springs at 14
14 cents. Dressed meats were scarce and
There was no change in the egg market.

Butter and cheese were in active demand
and firm in price.
