American Market Down to Ex
BUYING FOR BRADFORD
Million Pounds of All Grades Pur
crwised for Shipment to England.
Orpjron Market Is Steady
Wool prices ara holding very steady In
Oregron. The market now Is on & par with
opening prices paid at Pilot Rock. The gen
eral range In Eastern Oregon Is from :
to 15 H cents. These prices are 2 to 3 cents
In the grease lower than prevailed laet
Oregon growers up to this time have sold
quite freely at the public tales. Outside of
about 120.000 pounds that were consigned
by Baker sheep men to Chicago no wool has
been sent east on consignment.
In other sections of the West trading Is
not very active. In the Triangle sales have
thus far been too small to establish values.
In Texas Eastern buyers are not yet ready
to operate freely. The same is true in a
measure of California. In the Territory sec
tions a much better feeling seems to prevail.
Many are of the opinion that prices on moat
grades have about reached their lowest level,
and the fact that quite a lot of wool has
been sold for export Indicates that present
quotations are dmrn to a level where they
compare closely with prices abroad.
Mail advices from Boston say of the ex
"Good -sized blocks of domestic wool have
been sold to an English broker for ship
ment to Bradford. Current rumor hae It
that the amount Is well up to half a mil
lion pounds. Including California Spring
wools, both in the grease and scoured. Ter
ritory wools and pulled wools of various
grades. The estimated scoured cost laid
down In Bradford 1s 47 cent. Similar pur
chases were made by the same party sev
eral years ago, therefore the -buyer knows
what to expect. The previous sales were
reported not to have resulted very well, as
the scouring shrinkage Is somewhat greater
In Bradford than on this side of the water.
Members of the trade are pointing to this
as proof positive that the Boston market is
now down to the importing point, particu
larly on the grades of wool Included. Cer
tainly the Boston market la down to the level
of 46 to 60 cents per scoured pound for fine
and tine medium clothing wools."
WHEAT STOCKS BEING WORKED OFF
California Still Buying mt Old Price Blue
stem In o Demand.
There were no new developments In the
wheat market. Trade was quiet, as Is to
be expected under the circumstances. The
dealers are putting In their time cleaning up
their stocks, and have no difficulty in find

and red at about the same prices that havo
prevailed for the past two weeks. Bluestem
is weak, as there is almost no demand for
whtt little is left.

STOCK MARKET CALM
No Excitement in Wall-Street
TRADING ON SMALL SCALE
Cheerful Reports From London
Cause Strong Opening, but Bear
Selling Iater Brings About
Break in Values.
NEW YORK, June 11. The excitement
which attended yesterday's violent break in
stocks was absent from todays trading,
which was comparatively calm and on a
much smaller scale. Some progress was
made toward recovery in the early session,
but the effect of this movement was nulli
nsd by a severe break shortly before the
close. Canadian Pacific was the particular
point of weakness, falling nearly 8 "points
11a nign price or the day to the low
est figure since 1911. Steel sold below 50
for the first time since 1908. Union Pacific
dropped to 137. and a number of other
new low- records were made with virtually
the entire active list selling below yester
Bear selling was perhaps the" principal
factor in the break, which was a disappoint
ment to traders who believed thac a sub
stantial rally was due after yesterday's
This belief was strengthened by more
cheerful reports from London and the rise
In America, stocks there, followed by a
material upturn at the opening here.
A further favorable factor was the ab
sence of European liquidation which has
been dragging heavily on this market re
cently. London trading here was much
smaller, being estimated at about 105.000
shares divided between purchases and sales.
Less importance was attached to the
Minnesota rate case decision as a market
factor and there was some disposition to
emphasize the points in the decision over
looked at first, which favor the railroads.
Conditions In the money msrket came In
for considerable discussion. Rates for time
loans were stronger and it was said that
even these higher rates were nominal, prac
tically no time money being offered. Short
term note Issues, amounting to nearly $30,
000,000, were announced and it was argued
that they would Impose an additional strain
upon the money market.
Bonds were Irregular. ' Total sales, par.

Traders Figure on Possibility of Dry

Territory Other Grains Gain.
CHICAGO. June 11. -Important enlarge
ment of Investment demand, based to some
extent on the possibility of a dry weather
scare in the Spring crop belt, led to a de
cided upturn today in wheat. The market
closed steady at a net advance of c to
lc. Corn gained c to 11c, and
oats 14c to c. In provisions the out
come was the same as last night to 12 c
Seaboard clearances of wheat and flour
equalled 621.000 bushels. Primary receipts
of wheat were 485.000 bushels; a year ago
Corn finished at the highest level of the
session. Lightness of stocks here and dam
age reports from Central Illinois formed the
chief inceptive to buyers.
Most of the strength of oats was derived
from wheat and corn.
Profit-taking by longs restrained provis
ions from an all around advance with grain
and hogs. The close was unsettled.
