THE 3IORMXG OREGOXIAX, THURSDAY. JANUARY 30, 1913.
WHEAT BUYING LESS
Prices Are Well Maintained on
FARMERS ARE NOT SELLERS
Dealers Offering More Freely but
Making No Coinresslons Miller
Reported to Be Out of Market.
Import Flour Is Quiet.
tttm vn&t m&rkct a much quieter yes-
tcrtlay at rortland. on the Hound and in the
country. So far as farmer were concemea
there was no change In the situation, hut
on the part of dealers there was rather
more disposition to sell ana taKe preseni
profits. The freer offerings, however, wero
not accompanied by any concessions in
Bluest eni was available at JW5 cents and
Hub around S8 cents, but there did not
appear to be much demand at these fig
ures. The millers on the Sound were said
te be out of the market, an occurrence that
frequently follows their periodical meeting,
although it does not always mean a cessa
tion of activity.
At the present time, however, there seems
lo be less desire on the part of millers to
load up with wheat. The Oriental demand
for flour has slackened down In a material
decree, and this may be the reason.
There was not much business passing- in
oats or barley, and prices were unchanged.
The grain bag market is active and firm
at 10 cents.
Local recelpta In cars, were reported by
the Merchants' Exchange as follows:

elrhths Mood Montana nt 26 cents. In ad
dition to the above there were a consider
able number of clean-up small sales of vari
ous grades and qualities of territory wools.
The attitude of the Eastern trade on con
tractus; Is shown by the following report
Contracting for growing wool In the
West Is hindered by the attitude of flock
masters at present. They want prices
v.hlrh approximate those of last season.
The buyers from the East, howexer, feel
that this attitude is unwarranted, in view
of the tariff outlook, and they have so far
refused to operate. It looks as though
shearing will be under way In Wyoming be
fore any buying Is done, as none has yet
Ft'TVRJS COCRSE OF SUGAR PRICES
Market at Present Is TMscountlnjr Bad
The outlook for the sugar market is
viewed in- the following light by a New
York surar authority:
"The sugar market discounts good condi
tions as well as bad conditions. It Is dis
counting the bad conditions now. The good
conditions are to come after the height of
the Cuba grinding season has been passed,
production from then on lessening. At that
time the demand for refined will be making
tiK strides, a demand that In its full amount
for the year Is counted upon to show a bij
Increase over the consumption of 1912.
There will be a speculative Inquiry that will
help to carry temporary excess stocks."
Demand for Hops Ierreaea.
The demand for hops bus flattened out,
both here and In California, and no market
activity ta expected before buying starts
for February shipment.
Beer sales for the month of December,
according to returns to the Internal Reve
nue Department, were 4,631,951 barrels in
1912, against 4.t9.1B7 barrels In 1911.
Cheese Market In Good Shape.
Cheese Is going Into consumption in a
fairly active may. and the market is very
steady at present prices. Butter Is clean
ing up well and la also steady.
Poultry was in light supply yesterday and
the market was firm, especially for hens.
Dressed meats moved at former prices.
The demand for esses was moderate and
prices were fairly steady.
Cheap Applrs Only Are Wanted.
There mas a fair demand yastorday for
cheap grade apples at r.Otfcrrtt cents, but ver-
few wero te be hnd. The better grades
were neglected. Considerable shipments of
red Hood Ktver., s'Ookhave been made to
The vegetable- market was lightly sup
plied. With the quality mostly poor and
prices high, buy ins was not of satisfactory
volume. California advices were that no
more celery will be shipped before March 1.

NEW YORK. Jan. 2D. Gains made by the
standard stocks on jesterday's rise were con
siderably reduced today. Apparently the
most pressing requirements of the short In

fell off with a resultant weakening in mar

stocks, such as Reading. Union Facine. ateej.

Although the breaking off of the peace

FOR TRAINING CAMP.

Xealon, Boosts Varlan, Recruit Out
fielder Colin Almost Signs
Sport Editor as Pitcher.
After announcing; unofficially that
the Portland Colts would train for the
1913 Northwestern League campaign at
San Rafael, Cal., Manager Nick Wil
liams was forced to erase that town
from his list yesterday afternoon. Nick
received a telegram from Jim Nealon,
his scout, that the San Rafael diamond
is under water from excessive rainfall
and will not be in condition for play
for three months.
San Jose, Cal., takes its place as a
prospective Colt training camp, Wil
liams receiving an invitation from the
Chamber of Commerce of that city.
Nick has written to find out what fi
nancial Inducements the San Jose peo
ple will extend.
Santa Rosa, another town near San
Francisco, is beinu considered by Wil
liams, who is experiencing more
trouble in locating his men for-Spring
maneuvers than did Walter McCredie
before he finally decided on Visalia,
Nealon writes to Williams boosting
Varian, the San Francisco youngster
who has been signed for the Colt out
field. The lad is hitting the ball hard,
and secured three hits off Harry
Krause the other day. This is con
sidered no small feat for a left-handed
batsman againet a southpaw hurler.
Joe Cohn, the Spokane owner, who
tops the list of Northwestern magnates
in signing up young players, came
within 15 minutes of carrying a Port
land sporting writer on his pitching
staff for the 1913 season, or at least
until the call for training camp.
E. I. Mills, one of the prominent fans,
"framed" the deal on Cohn. He met
Joe in the lobby of a Portland hotel,
mentioned a string of players he had
placed in the game; declared that the
McCredics did not know a player when
they saw one, and whisperingly ad
vised Joe to grab a lanky twirling
phenom who stood several yards away.
Joe approached tie object of the
conversation, was visibly Impressed by
the modest words in which the lad
spoke of his diamond performances,
and, after advising him to say nothing
to anyone who might tip it off to Mc
Credie, made an engagement for 12
o'clock the next day at the Cornelius
Hotel. Joe left the hotel 16 minutes
before 12 o'clock and the next day left
town, which saved him from the "kid
ding" of his career.
Bob Cronin was the pitcher in ques
tion, but the simple disguise of substi
tuting a cap for a derby fooled Joe,
who has known Cronin for several,

discussing the formation of a Yamhill
league for baseball, to be composed of
teams from Hillsboro, Forest Grove,
McMinnville, Sheridan and Dallas,
though not formally brought to the
attention of baseball enthusiasts of

within the city limits to construct a
ball park and furnish a site for the
annual County Fair of Polk County.
The subject will be presented for
mally to the Dallas Commercial Club
at Its next regular meeting, and It is
expected that the club will take some
definite action with reference to se
curing a location for the baseball park.
Baseball has not been a financial suc

securing suitable grounds for a. park.

study the causes and find prevention
for diseases that attack orchards, a
number of the orchardists are plan
ning on forming an association and
employing Professor W. H. Lawrence to
look after their tracts. For the last
year Professor Lawrence, who has ten
years' experience in experimental work
in the state of Washington, as head of
the Pullman station, has been em
ployed by the county as fruit inspector
at a salary of $2500 a year. A recent
report of the grand Jury warned the
County Commissioners that the main
tenance of such an office was Illegal
and that the county could only employ
a fruit inspector and pay him S3 a day
for actual work done.
A number of the larger growers have
pledged a fifth of the amount neces
sary to keep Professor Lawrence here,
according to announcement of P. S.
Davidson, an orchardist. E. H. Shep

of "Better Fruit," has pledged his sup
