Oregon Apple Output
QUALITY WILL BE GOOD
Profapects for Prices to Growers Are
Materially Better Thau Year
Ago Other Fruits Do Well
in This State.
Tieports received by the State Board of
Horticulture indicate that the apple crop
of Oregon this year will be about two-thirds
as large s last year. In 1012 Oregon had
a phenomenal yield of apples, the commer
cial crop being estimated at 2."GO cars. The
present crop, however, is coming on better
than -was expected earlier in the season.
This la naturally an "off year," following
a season of biff production, and but for the
fact that many new orcnards have come in,
the crop would be much smaller than it is.
In the Hood River section, especially, the
proportion of young orchards that have
come Into bearing is large.
"The quality of the crop will be well up
to the average, if the growers sort their
fruit properly." said H. M. Williamson, sec
retary of the Board. "It is a peculiarity of
the apple that when the crop is short it is
apt to be diseased. The cold, rainy Spring
made spraying for fungus diseases difficult.
The trouble is principally manifested in the
form of scab, but this will nut cut down the
quantity of the crop.
"The prospects for apple prices are mate
rially better than they were last year. The
crop in the United States, according to re
ports, will not be over two-thirds that of
1912. The Northwest is also in better shape
to market the crop than it was last season.
"The Hood River and Mosier sections will
have more apples in the aggregate than any
other district in the state. The production
there will be about the same as last year.
Rogue River had a small crop in 1912 and
will hare more this year. The Willamette
Valley cron will probably be 25 per cent
smaller than a year ago. The crop in East
ern Oregon will also be light- The Grand
Rondo and JJiton-Freewater districts will
not produce more than 50 to 6t per cent of
last year' crop.
"The prune outlook is better than was
hoped for earlier In the year. There will
probably be two-thirds of a crop and prices
promise to be good. Contracting is now be-
ing done freely at satisfactory figures.
"The peach crop will be near an average
one. The Ialles section is doing better than
last year. The scarcity of peaches in Cali
fornia is helping the Oregon market.
"The pear crop is never a full one In Ore
gon, but this year it is as large or larger
than it was last year, and prices are very
good. California canners have invaded the
Valley and have contracted for the largest
crops for shipment south. Southern Oregon
growers who are shipping pears to the East
ern markets it-port excellent , prices re
ceived." WHEAT HIVING FOR JAPAN ACCOUNT
Fine Prospect for Oats Crap in Oregon and
Wash Inert on.
Wheat trading continues on a moderate
cale. a little buying is reported for Japan
ese account on short sales, but the millers
all seem to be out of the market. 'September-October
Club was quoted at 7S cents.
fife at 77 cents and red Russian at 76 cents.
The undertone of the market was weak.
Threshing returns received from the coun
try were very satisfactory. Big Bend reports
stated that more bluestem would be pro
duced than last year.
Offers of $232S.5t were made for barley
for early shipment and $22.50 was bid for
later barley, . . Samples of . new barley re
retved were of fine quality, one lot testing
5M pounds. Reports of some phenomenal
yields to the acre were receivd.
Not much trade was passing In the oats
market, but small lots for early shipment
were taken at 425. Dealers look for an
exceedingly rood crop of oats in both states.
Valley reports would Indicate the largest
crop In several years. Threshing of gray
oats has started and the quality is good.
Eastern Washington conditions are first
class, and portions of Northern Washington
are reporting good crops, where oats were
never grown in quantity before. On the
La Conner flats, for the first time in many
years the oats are bright, and growers from
there say if the weather holds out for two
weeks longer an immense crop will be har
vested. Local receipts in cars were reported by
the Merchants Exchange as follows;

MARKET FOR, CONTRACT HOPS CCfKT
Bin? Estimate Crop of Continental "Europe
at S5O.00O Cwt.
Offers for hops at 20 cents were rfeported
to bo still out yesterday, but no contracts
were known to have been made.
A cable from Ironmonger, of London, said
the weather In England was wet and cold
and estimated the crop at S0(,0u0 cwt.
Bernard BIng. of Nuremburg, est '(mated the
continental crop at 650,00 0 cwt.
The Kentish berVer. of- Jxi&y 24. said
of the English crop:
"The bine, especially In the f flggls. which
were suffering from drought,, Is looking
much better since the heavy rains, but it
fs an open question if the Gosling varieties,
especially In Mid and East Knit, were really
In want or any ralu. The stimulus which
the bine receives from thv, wet spell is
shared by the vermin where the hops were
not absolutely clean, and clean gardens are
In the minority. Where tle "burr" is put
ting In an appearance muuy growers com
plain that it is coming metre or less "singly"
and the crop bids fuir to be a "ton rron"
and "showy" one whi.h may very easilv
be over-estimated. Dry. -Aot forcing weather
is now mucn 10 oe awilreu."

LESTER D. BLAKE KILLED
Accidental Shot While Hunting- Re
sults in Boy's Ieath.
SEASrDE4 Or., Aug. 6. (Special.)
Lester Donovan Blake, aged 16, was
accidentally shot, through the lungs
yesterday on Indian Beach, near Ecola
'while hunting in company with another
young1 man. Blake -was employed on
the Gllsan & Flanders ranch.
While clambering- over some large
rocks, he dropped his rifle and in
reaching- to recover it, dragged the
weapon toward himself by the muzzle
and received the bullet in the left shoul
der, from where it coursed downward
and backward, tearing- the lung so that
death resulted shortly after the young
man had been brought to the home of
his brother, J. O. Blake, of Seaside.
Blake was the youngest of a family of
11 children, and this is the first death
in the family.
Bag Machinery Arrives.
CAMAS, "Wash.. Aug. 6. (Special.)
Three more carloads of machines for
the bag factorv have arrived here. The
cars contain 10 automatic bag-making
machines, and two of the new envelope
machines. It will not be possible to
get them lined up until more room
is provided by the completion of the
addition to the bag factory, but this
will soon be in readiness. The rush
of work in the finishing-room and
other departments of the mill Is such
that another ream-cutter will in all
likelihood be installed in the notr fu

NEW YORK, Aug. 6. The outstanding

Success of a substantial financial na

GOBI! SOARS AGAIN
Reports of Crop Damage

SHOWERS OF SMALL EFFECT
Wheat Follows in Upward Move
ment in JPace of Favorable Re-
ports From Canada and Heavy
Receipts Oats Are Higher.
CHICAGO. Aug. 6. Blistering winds and
no rain In Kansas and Missouri finally sen
corn on a decidedly upward course today,
after a series of violent swings. The mar
ket closed firm, 1 & 14 lc net higher.
Wheat showed a gain of to c and oats
a rise of hi to c. In provisions the
outcome varied from &c decline to an p-
w a rd tura of 1 5c.
Reports as to corn damage in Kansas,
Missouri and parts of Nebraska came rapid
ly during the last hour of the session. Some
points in Iowa also reported temperatures
of 104 in the shade and predicted that two
more such days would mean the ruin of the
Hesitation and weakness that preceded
the cordusive advance in corn were due to
light rains which were scattered pretty
generally over most of the belt east of the
Missouri River, except In Missouri. There
was a forecast, too, that additional sprin
kles would appear. Experts in Kansas,
however, asserted that even with heavy
rain tonight the state would not yield half
Other bullish incentives were found in an
estimate that hay marketed this year would
be nearly 20 per cent less In amount than
last season and that much livestock was
already on feed, owing to pastures burning
un in a way not equaled since 1901.
Wheat tagged corn. Heavy receipts here
encouraged some bear speculators and
also did favorable reports from Canada,
where the harvest Is near at hand. There
was an offset in advices that wheat arriving
in Chicago was already sold. Primary re
ceipts were 2.20J.000 bushels: a year ago,
l.fiSLOOt) bushels. Export clearances of
wheat and flour equaled 1,358,000 bushels.
Good threshing returns in Northern sec
tions made oats relatively weak;
Offerings dried up quickly In provisions.
