PICKING TIME NEAR
Hop Growers Hold Out for 20
Cents but Don't Get It.
DEALERS REFUSING TO BUY
Weather Conditions Ideal for Heavy
Crop In Oregon Market Uncer
tain and Xo Business Un
til After Harvest.
Hopffrowera trho hare bn holding out
for the pact few weeks for 20-cent market
now will Harvest their crop before ofrenn
their product tvr eale. The buyers are un
willing; at this time to pay SO cents and the
farmers axe confident that they should set
at least that figure. As a result there is
very little buslnes movwij. The market is
wot definitely fixed at any particular figure.
It may be said to vary from 1 cents to 20
cents. No business is passing above 20
cents and nothing has been done below 18
What the openlnr ftuxes will be depends
largely upon the condition of the hops in
bales. Thus far Indications point to a par
ticularly rood crop In Oregon both in
quality and quantity. Growers declare that
the weather Is Ideal for their needs. They
ara preparing now for the picking season,
tt Is probable that same picking will be
dona within the next 12 days. The hops
around Independence and Delias are begin
ntng to turn. The big yards area making
extensive preparations to harvest their
Growers around Independence are Insist
Ing on 0 cents as the minimum figure at
which they will permit their hops to pads
out of their hands. Some early contracts
were made around there at 20 cents and
those who have not already contracted feel
that they should get the same amount.
Advices from England and the continent
of Europe Indicate very favorable weather
tn that section. German dealers are trying
to sell hops fn this country. These condi
tions are not very favorable to the bull
The following from the last Issue of the
Watervllle Hop Reporter tells of the situa
tion In New York State:
"While most favorable growing weather
has prevailed for the past week. It has also
been favorable for mildew and In a number
of yards this appears to have spread to
some extent. Many of the growers who are
keeping close watch of their yards were
quick to notice this new development and
by prompt and thorough spraying were able
to check it most effectively. A few yards
where the sulphur was not applied in time
show the effects quite badly and ara al
redy beginning to look off color. For the
most part, however, the mold does not ap
pear to have secured the foothold that It
bad at this season last year.
"Generally speaking, the yards ara doing
finely and are of excellent color. The hops
are large and there ara comparatively few
leaves, making a very showy crop.
"The cold weather early in the Spring
stunted the growth to such an extent that
the crop will be light throughout the state.
Ktimats vary from 20 per cent to 35 per
cent short of last year, although it la yet
early to make a, careful survey of the
APPLES TO BE C AXLED "SKOOKCM"
Northwestern Growers Adopt Trade Name
for Beet Frrxluct.
"Skookum is the nam that has t een se
lected by leading appie-growers of the
..Northwest as a trademark - foe their best

and really means something very good. It
la something better than good.
At a meeting of the board of directors
of the Northwestern Fruit Exchange over
TOO names were received In a competitive
name campaign. Nothing else was sub
mitted that would coma within a mile of so
tersely expressing the quality of the world's
Jest apples. Organisations of two states
Oregon and Washingtonhave already sig
nified their Intention of using the name.
The product of the most famous apple-
growing centers of the world will this year
be marketed under the Inter-communlty

to advertise the apple by a trade name.

According to advices received yesterday
from North Yakima the hop crop there
w in be as heavy as usual. Following Is
the substance of reports recently received
from there by the traffic department of the
0--W. R. St N. Company:
"Weather has been clear and decidedly
cooler than the previous week. Weather
conditions have been very favorable for the
hop crop. There has been considerable talk
about a short hop crop, but those best posted
seem to thing the crop will be fully J2.O00
bales, or approximately the same crop
we hsd last year. The prices being received
are very enconraging and business as a
whola has a much healthier tone than a
few weeks ago.
Movement of Grain Is Lighter.
Wheat shipments into Portland were
lighter yesterday than on the previous day.
Most of the day's receipts consisted of 1012
wheat that had teen cleaned from the ware
houses to make room tor the new crop. B
a peculiar coincidence, the receipts yester
day were the same, exactly, as the receipt
on the corresponding day a year ago 37
Receipts for the season to date are some
what below those of a year ago at this
time. Following Is the report of grain re

Botb Hog and Cattle Markets Show
Signs of Improvement Due to
Eastern Hot Weather.
In contrast to th heavy run of cattl. on
Monday, thero was but a. slight offering of

Mutton enjoyed a brisk run yesterday, but
prices maintained the standard that has
prevailed through the lnst tew weeks.
Lambs brought a fairly good figure, several
lots going at to. Wethers fluctuated around
f3.7& and 13.60.
In the nog department there was little
activity. A few sales were made at SS.oo,
but there was a firm undertone.
Th. prevailing sentiment is that the mar
ket for both hogs and cattle will advance
within the next few weeks. Xhis Is due to
the continued drouth In the Middle West
and Southwest. Hot weather has created a
probable shortage In the corn supply and
has caused a lot of cattle to suitor. Prices
on the Chicago market already are start
ing to advance. The local market ta ex
pected to go up In sympathy.
Yesterday's receipts consisted of 1111
sheep, 214 hogs, 7 cattle and four calves.
The following shippers were represented at
the yards yesterday: L Steuver, Condon,
three cars of sheep; John Hayes, Heppner.

CORX, WHEAT AX OATS DKOP
IX PKICE AT CHICAGO.
Selling; by Influential Longs Causes
Corn Market to Sa"r; Rain Also
Has a Bearish Effect.
CHICAGO, Aug. 1$. Grain markets were
today lower all around. Corn, though It had
lost much of Its recent activity, continued
to be the center of Interest. Net losses of
to SO wera recorded In corn. ft
to e in wheat, and In oats. Pro
vision, closed Irregular 2 lower to 7
Selling of corn by Influential longs de
pressed that market after a little bulge In
September. Selling pressure was felt early
In th. aesslon, the bears accepting reports
of scattering rains In tbe corn belt (most
of it, however, outside of tha Southwest)
ss being beneficial, though some experts
held that tbe fall was too light to help
the drought-parched crop much.
Much of the bearish feeling displayed by
the market was due to a belief that a re
action was due as the long continued period
of bullish control. Bids from the South at
figures over Chicago prices failed to rally
the market nor did the fact that cash re
ceipts were very light help the bulls.
In spite of some anxiety over probable
damaging results of too much rain in the
Canadian Northwest wheat waa on the down
grade nearly the entire session. An advance
of o In Liverpool closing prices did not
sustain th, local - market, and it sagged
with corn. Prospects of increased wheat
stocks in the Southwest by the middle of
Seotember also served to send prices down-
Free selling of oats weakened prices after
a strong opening and oats also followed
tbe dip In. corn.
Investment buying and covering by shorts
gave strength to provisions for most of
the day. but at the close Tree ottexings
caused reactions in most of the list.
