Minimum Weight Ruling.
Portland will mod be without rane. If
the hemlth official, of thl city stand by
thHr word to prevent the sale of any frosted
fruit here. At a conternce of the author
ities yesterday it was derided not to allow
oranirea even iltfhtly touched by fro?t to
be sold. This will mean the cutting off of
the entire supply, as In a very short lime
no early pick! can be had.
The packing-houfes in California are now
practically bare of oranncs that were gath
ered before the cold wave struck that state.
The cleaned-up condition of the supply
shown by the fact that the few cars offered

odds and ends of navels and seedlings of
Only one car of frosted oranges has
reached PortJand so far. No attempt was
made to sell the oranges here, hut the firm
to whom the car was billed turned It down
While the Portland wholesalers are stand
ing pat against allowing this city to be
made a dumping ground for bad fruit, they
realize that unless some concessions are
made, the public will have to go entirely
without oranges of any kind for several
months. They suggest that a minimum
weight ruling be agreed upon, which will
enable them to handle oranges only slightly
touched by frost which are still of mer
chantable quality. By placing the mini
mum weight at 72 pounds to the box they
believe the arrangement would be satisfac
tory to all concerned. The average weight
of first-class oranges is about SO pounds to

HEAVY ORDERS OX HOP MARKET
Inquiry for Primes Exceed the Quantity
Left In the State.
There wero plenty of orders on the hop
market yesterday, but no sellers. It was
estimated that the orders on hand for prime
goods were more than sufficient to take up
all that are left in all hands In the state.
The market here is completely blocked,
and .It will require an advance In bids to
Elsewhere on the Coast there was more
activity. In Yakima 400 bale were sold at
1SH cents to tho grower. California wires
told of the sale of "50 bales of Saoramentos
at li cents, with 1 cents bid for others
Pern hard Blng writes from Nurcmburg,
licrmanr. as follows:
Our market was again rather active,
with daily tranactions of 200 to :.X baleb
at very firm and stiffening prices. Not
onl was the home consumption a daily
and strong buyer, but also a brisk demand
on the part of the exporters is noted. To
all appearances the latter are still short
sellers on account of their ruinous contracts
of last Fall, and are forced now to cover
themselves under less favorable circum
stances than before."
Demand for Cheeee Is Better.
The demand for cheese has become more
active, and the local market is firmer. But
ter is steady at the old price.
Receipts of poultry and dressed meats
were light yesterday, and the market wad
firm at Saturday's prices.
Eggs were In light demand and weak at

STOCK DEMAND SAGS
Moderate Offerings Are Suffi
cient to Depress Prices.
COPPERS UNDER PRESSURE
Brief fcpurt Due to Belter Minnesota
Kate Case Had Been Decided.
More Gold Engaged for
lixport to Europe.
NEW YORK, Jan. SO. The demand for
stock, vr&s light today and moderate offer
ing, were nufflclent to deprem price, of the
leaders nearly to the lowest point of the
present movement. The market was dull
and trading dragged. The only lively per
iod of the sfslon came In the early aftet
noon. when for a few minutes there was
excited trading on a rapidly rising scale
The spurt was due to a report that the
Supreme I'ourt had decided the Minnesota
rate case favorably to the railroads. When
It was discovered that this report was based
on an error In the readlns of a. telegram,
and that It was an Inconspicuous case In
stead of the long awaited Minnesota case,
which had been decided, prices fell oft
as suddenly as they had risen and soon
reached the lowest level of the day.
On the tipward movement. Vnion Pacific
gained 3 points and other shares 1 to 2.
At the low point a number of the leaders
showed recessions of I to 2 points, and
Amalgmated at 70Si was at a new low quo
tation for the movement.
The copper ehares were once more de
pressed, being Influenced adversely by the
sharp break of the metal in London and
reports of sales here as low as 10 cents.
Steel also was under pressure, and theie
was renewed weakness among specialties,
which have been heavy recently.
American Tobacco moved over a wide
ranKe. rllng 7 '.i to only to fall back
8 points later. In the last part of the day
thi- unusual activity In Rock Island
securities. The common and preferred
stock and the collateral 4s were weak, tn
bonds losing 2.
Reports from Western railroad managers
indicated that the business momentum was
unchanged and that traffic on the Western
lines was being more than maintained.
An additional engagement of 000.000
gold for Europe brought up the total for
the movement to 0. 000.000.

APPEA'Ij CASKS PILE UP AGAIN
IX CIRCUIT COURT.
BondMiucn Sued to Force Payment
for Defaulters and Deputy City
Attovgiey Wants New Rule.
Fear that all the good effects of the
recent clean-up of Municipal Court
cases on appeal in the Circuit Court
may be lost by a reversion to former
conditions, is express uy i.cuui.,
City Attorney Sullivan, upon whom
devolves the "duty of seeing that the
appeals are taken up promptly. Since
two months ago when 100 cases were
disposed of some of which had been on
ippeal for more than a year, new ap
peals have been piling up in the higher
court and none has been set for trial.
High hopes of havlng'ended a serious
obstruction of justice were entertained
when after much agitation, arrange
ments were made by which it was
understood that appeals from the Munic
ipal Court -were to have right of way
in the Circuit Court. Trior to this time,
dilatory appeals had been the last
resort of lawbreakers after being con-
1 t tV,,, court. with the
frequent result that witnesses were
gone or otner uiuicuilics nen. mc"
before the appeal was heard. Knowl
edge that a prompt hearing on appeal
awaited them has deterred many at
torneys -from taking their cases to the
higher court on frivolous grounds since
.ha Hfcr clPn-IlT.
Six or seven cases are now waiting
to be heard ana tnere nave oeen no
trials in over a month. In addition the
City Attorney has pending ten or more
suits to recover from bondsmen in cases
appealed from the Municipal Court and
in which the penalty assessed in the
Circuit Court has not been paid. In
all of these, dilatory motions have
been interposed and no progress has
been made toward collecting the delin

pay. and their refusal to do so exposes
a condition, little better than that of
former times when 'straw Donosmen
were accepted. The prosecutor intends
to take up with the court the matter
of a closer examination of prospective
bondsmen, not only with reference to
their financial responsibility, but as to
their character as well. -

says Mr. Sullivan. He also says that
he will insist in the future upon per

of this kind that a number of convicted
men escaped from the city l;Lst year,

COUNTY BALKS BRIDGE BILL
City Attorney's Draft Fails to Get
Sanction ot Court.
The County Court has refused to con
cur in a bill drawn up by the City At
torney for presentation to the Legis
lature placing under the control of the
county for operation purposes all
bridges owned or under lease by the
city. The reason is that the county is
not willing to assume the lease entered
into by the city with the O.-W. R. & N.
Company, by which the railway com
pany gets practically 40,000 a year for
the use of the upper deck of the new
"We hate made no appropriation for
the purpose of taking over this lease
and could not pay the money even if
the Legislature should saddle it on us
in spite of our objections," said County
Judge Cleeton. "Anyway, we think the
price is exorbitant and. while we might
not do better ourselves, still we would
like the opportunity of trying. The
city lease. I understand, runs for two
years from last October.
"In any event the county is going to
give something and get nothing in this
bridge proposition. AVe will operate
the bridge and the city will get all the
revenue from the car company. The
county also will have to maintain the
bridges. The bill prepared by the City
Attorney would provide for the main
tenance of the approaches by the county
as well but we believe that these should
be declared streets and their upkeep
assessed against frontage property and
have suggested an amendment to this
A measure was passed by the. peo
ple at the election on November 2,

the county and the measure prepared
by the City Attorney's office is for the
purpose of having the Legislature af
