Th apple crop cf the United States will
be shorter this year than last year, but
there promises to bo a good average yield.
The Government' report for July. the
lastest issued, indicated a production slight
ly better than in 1011. The condition on
July 1 was 60.4 per cent as compared with
67 1 per cent on Juno 1, H7.9 per cent on
July 1 last year and 59.1 per cent the ten
Detailed reports Irom all parts of the
country have been received by the Packer,
which are summarized as follows:
The Oregon crop is estimated at about the
same quantity as last year and the fruit
In In good condition. Hood River Is credited
with 1K0 cars. Mosicr with - a larger ton
nage than last year, Wedford reports- 80
per cent of a crop and Union County half
a crop. The Government estimate of con
dition Ik S7 per cent.
The Washington crop is in good con
dition, but the percentage is irregular and
varies from 100 to 20 per cent. Cashmere
reports 80 per cent of a full crop and the
Yakima Valley the same percentage. The
Government's estimate for the state is
Idaho will not equal last year's production,
nor xv ill Montana.
California will lull short- of last year.
Estimates range from 1500 to 2000 cars for
the Pajaro Valley. Utah will have a smaller
crop than a year ago.
Missouri growers do not believe that state
will come up to the Government's estimate
of, 86. Minnesota, will have a, good crop,
some estimating it at double that of 1912.
Oklahoma will have half of a crop. New
Mexico and Texas will not cut much figure
in the ehlppinff movement. Iowa estimates
a liirger crop than last year.
The Indiana crop was damaged In many
places by frost and the. reports are Irregu
lar, running from zero to a full crop.
Nebraska, authorities estimate more than
produced last year. Arkansas reports indi
cate two-thirds of u crop, and "Wisconsin
Colorado, an important state, because of
the large quantity of box apples usually
nipped, will this year have only half a
crop. Illinois will have almost a normal
yi'Md. Hot winds will cause the Kansas
crop to fall below that of 1912.
The New York crop will be smaller than
last year's. In Western New York the
shortage is estimated at lO to over 23 per
cent. Baldwins are showing up the high
est of the commercial varieties. In the Hud
son River district the output will be light.
The . Government's estimate for the state
Is but little over halt a crop.
The Virginia crop will be very small, the
general average being 23 per cent. A low
production is Indicated in Pennsylvania and
home consumption will take care o-i most -of
the crop. Ohio apples were badly Injured
by frost and the outturn will be less than
the small crop of last year. Michigan will
have two-thirds, Connecticut and Rhode
Island about the same. Vermont a quarter
of a crop. New Jersey and Delaware each
about half a crop.
West Virginia will have noro to ship and
In some sections not enough for homo con
sumption. Other states show up about as
follows: Massachusetts and Kentucky, two
thirds ; Tennessee, Maryland and Maine,
hallf a crop; Georgia, 73 per cent or less.
FA1X GRAIN OF HEAVY. WEIGHT
Testa on Bpokane IMvision Indicate 61 to
63 Pounds Per Bushel.
Grain and fruit crop conditions during the
past week are reported by the traffic de
partment of the O.-W". R. &, N. Company as
Spokane disivlon The weather the past
week has been warm. c!-?ar and quite dry.
The soil has dried out a good deal, but
till contains sufficient moisture to take
care of the Spring grain. The warm weather
had a slight effect on Spring grain, as
same was in tho milky state, and it Is
thought the berry was somewhat shriveled.
Fall grain Is being cut and shows a
good quality, test -weights indicating 61 to
t3 pounds per bushel. None of this grain
worthy- of mention has yet arrived at ware
houses. All conditions still favorable, for normal
Have mado some investigation as to po
tato crop and find that In this district there
are approximately -TOO acres planted, and
there should be about 450 cars for ship
ment, providing a favorable market prevails.
Camas Prairie; Fall wheat and barley are
in good condition, excepting that a small
percentage of the- barley in the vicinity of
Lew is ton has been found to be stained.
The barley on the Nex Ferce and Camas
prairies Is pood. Spring grain, barley and
ats are -still In good condition.
Vegetables are in good condition, and
potatoes are being shipped.
Fruit is in good condition and is being
hipped in car loads.
Yakima division The second cutting of
alfalfa hay is nearly all in the stack and
will be all up by the end of the week.
This crop was in first-class condition.
Compared with last year the fruit ship
ments have been very slow. Fears in
Straight car loads will move during the
coming week, and Klborta peaches about
Hops are doing nicely. A crop of 22,000
bales is predicted.
Oregon division Harvesting of grain and
econd cutting of alfalfa Is now in full
blast through Wasco, Sherman. Gilliam and
. Morrow counties. The hot weather of last
wvelc damaged the Spring sown grain
throughout these counties very badly, and
the yield will be light, some fields not just
ifying the harvesting.
The potato crop is loci king fine. The
prospects for late peaches and prunes Is
Shaniko branch Very little change In
crop estimates- Weather continues favor
able. Estimate of average grain yield raised
from 16 to IS bushels.
Condon branch Same as last week.
Kast of Pendleton Baker: Most of the
timothy should be in the stack this week.
Barley harvest has Just commenced and
should average 70 to SO bushels per acre.

are there will be the biggest crop in the
history of this valley.
La Orande Fall grain now being cut.
All kinds of grain in best of condition. Po
tatoes growing fine and promise large yield.

first-class condition. Hay crop now being
ORIENTAL TRADE IS NOW EXPECTED
Freight Kates Are Settled and Orders from
Far Eaat Should Appear.
With the trans-Pacific freight rate ques
tion settled, some Oriental business should
now develop In the flour and wheat mar
kets. The rates have been fixed at $-1 to
Japan, $5 to Hongkong and $3.50 to Shang
hai and Manila. This is a. reduction of 50
cents a ton from the ciutomary Fall and
It has been the understanding that if a
reduction were obtained there would be
some buying by the Japanese for Japan and
North China account. No trade with Hong
and. South. China is looked for until
the revolutionary disturbances in that eec-
tion are eccld.
The wheat market was quiet yesterday.
There was a little demand for aeed wheat
on the basis of 7U ci;nts for club and IS
cents for red, but no important inquiry for
milling or export account. In his weekly
international wheat review. Broom hall says;
"Markets show a declining tendency, in
cident to the warm weather throughout Eu
rope and rapid progress in harvesting. Crop
reports have been mostly favorable, with
the exception of France, Italy and Hungary.
It is fortunate for consumers that America
has a large crop of Winter wheat, because,
owing to the late harvest In Europe, there
is a big demand from Western Europe, and
tnis must continue for some time longer, as
other exporting countries, excepting India,
are not ablt- to snip but sparingly. 1 feel
sure that the big European demand will
continue during the Winter wheat move
ment, and thereafter much wilt depend on
the Hpring V.heat crop of the United States
and Canada. Assuming that ail goes well
in Europe and North America, I expect an
abundance of wheat the fore part of next
season, and after that Argentine, Australia
and India will be the influences. Consump
tion will continue large."

Consul John H. Grout, of Odessa, reports
on the Russian ' hop crop prospects as
In tho Province of Volhynia, where the
hop-growing Industry centers, the plants
developed rapidly up to the beginning of
July, owing to the advent of warm weather
and abundant rainfall. This would be most
promising were it not for the appearance in
many places of a. umall beetle, which does
much damage to hop plants. In some yearB
these beetles do not last long and the plants
recover rapidly; in others they seriously
damage the crop. Reports from other dis
tricts are generally favorable, and the pres.
ent crop may prove superior to that of

STOCK RISE SHARP
Wail Street Market Resumes
TRADE OF LARGER VOLUME
Better Crop Prospects in Northwest
Start Advance Improved De
mand for Bonds Reported
at Higher Prices.
NEW YORK. Aug. 5. With business in
fairly large volume, today's stock market
resumed the upward swing. Some of the
high-priced specialties, notably the tobacco
issues, had gams exceeding five points.
Canadian Pacific showed heaviness and
American Express lost 12 points.
The movement lacked definite cause, other
than better crop prospects in the Northwest,
the outlook In the South and Southwest, ac
cording to the official report, still showing
serious deficiency in rainfall, although there
appears little foundation for the assertion
that two-thirds of the corn crop is in danger
It is not improbable that the further rise
resulted as much from technical conditions
In the stock market as from any other cause.
One of the day's developments was dis
tinctly unfavorable a prominent industrial
corporation, Virginia-Carolina Chemical, sus
pending its common dividend. . Chemical
stock was scarcely affected.
There was considerable activity in the
bond market at higher prices, and dealers
reported a better demand at higher prices.
Government bonds also received some stim
ulus, coupon 2s advancing 1 per cent, reg
istered 2s and Panama 2s ft on call.
Total sales, par value, $1,444,000.

RECORD WHEAT CROP
Big Estimate Gives Market
DAY'S LOSS CENT AND OVER
Buying Demand for Corn Is Ex
hausted and Price Again Re
cedes Oats Also Close at
CHICAGO. Aug. B. Wheat made a down,
ward plunge today, influenced in part by
an estimate that this year's crop in the
United States is the larsrest on record.
The market closed steady, bnt $r lc to i
i'aio unaer iast nift-ht. Corn finished
to sc off; oats down feic to c,
and provisions up 6 to 15c.
According to a "leading authority, the
wheat yield for this season will reach a to
tal of 37,000,000 bushels in excess of that
of the preceding 12 months. The new
record was figured to be 56.000.000 bushels
Winter wheat and 271,000,000 bushels
Although the shortage of corn and oats
this year was declared to be 1,000,000.000
bushels, compared with & year ago. both
cereals showed heaviness all day, barring
a splurge at the outset. Taking the session
as a whole, the volume of corn trade was
by no means so large as heretofore, for late
non-professional buying especially seemed to
have been exhausted. Resting orders to sell
at an advance were much in evidence.
The oats crowd did not take offerings
at all well after the market had begun
to subside with corn. Cash oats were off
1 to 3 cents from yesterday and hard to
sell at that.
Provisions advanced on account of buy
ing credited to packers. . It was gossip that
recent declines in the hog market would
curtail receipts to an uncomfortable degree.
The leading futures ranged as follows: .

STEER INVADES STATION
STRATEGY" OF SEATTLE PATROL.
MAN AVERTS PANTO.
Red-Coated Japanese Refuses to En
tice Animal and Officer
SEATTLE, Wash.. Aug. 5 (Special.)
A 1200-pound steer charged through
the switch yards, flushed a covey of
taxicab and 'bus drivers, plowed
through the iron gate and 'thrust a
wild-looking head into the waiting
room of the King-street station tonight.
Several hundred persons who were
waiting for the overland trains were
saved from a panic by the strategy of
Patrolman L. J. Forbes.
At the waiting-room door the steer
met the patrolman, who had seen the
stage production of "Quo Vadls" and
had long been an admirer of the mighty
Ursus. However, he determined to use
strategy before attempting to "bulldog"
the frightened steer.
"Here, you," he shouted to a red
coated Japanese porter, "get in front of
him and coax him out with that red
"Perhaps he may overtake me, then
what occurs?" asked the porter.
"I don't know," replied Mr. Forbes,
"but this steer has got to get out."
Thereupon the patrolman landed a
kick on the steer that sounded like
heaving a boulder against a bass drum.
The steer dodged around (behind the
baggage-room in the subway which
connects tho street with the tracks,
tearing oft a boxcar door and leaving
other wreckage in its path. Here Pa
trolman Forbes, who had secured a
rope, brought the chase to an abrupt
end. After lassoing -the steer Mr.
Forbes snubbed the animal to a steel
pillar. Then he sent for the pound
master. Oil 3 en Resume at Rickreall.
EICKREALL, Or., Aug. 5. (Special.)
Work has again been resumed .at the
Whiteaker oil well prospect, about
seven miles southwest of this place.
Plenty - of funds seemed to have been
obtained to put the- outfit in operation
for a considerable length of time. The
old casing at the well, which was
broken, will be replaced by new pipe,
and as soon as - the IraproveuvsU are
made drilling will begin.
