HIGHER BIDS DOT
Offers of 85 Cents Are Made
for Bluestem Wheat.
FARMERS SLOW SELLERS
Demand for Club Subsides and
, Prices Are Lowered One Cent,
bat Baying Is Checked.
Barley Trade Sluggish.
Bids of 85 cents for bluestem wheat were
put out yesterday, but met with not much
response on the part of sellers. Bluestem
was the only firm feature of tho wheat
market. The demand for club has subsided
materially and most dealers reduced their
bids to 79 cents, although they could not
buy at this flrure. Tbo recent flurry baa
left farmers,- particularly In Umatilla County.
Jn a bullish frame of mind, and they are
sitting; back waiting- for the market to re
turn to last week's level. While a rood part
of the buying- at that time was for account
of early ships, some of It was in the natur
of the usual scramble by warehousemen to
Set the movement to their houses started.
The eaalntr off of the Ban Francisco barley
market has had a qnletlny effect on trade
hera. particularly In view of the alujg-lsh
local demand. Feed oat wera quoted yes
terday at $24 24.60. The oats market was
steady and unchanged.
There have been no developments of Im
portance In the export flour market this
week. Japanese buyers are taking; a little
flour occasionally, but Chinese buyers are
doing nothing, and are not likely to In the
near future. Fairly large stocks are reported
to be available at Hongkong, with a eon
siderable quantity afloat for that port.
Financial conditions In South China are de
moralised, and even the ending: of the revo
lutionary troubles would not bring about Im
mediate improvement. 1

' Trading- la the Later Crop California
Yield Estimated at 95,000 Bales.
A few additional purchases of fugglo hops
were made yesterday. Since the buying
began T. A. Livesley fc Co, have bought the
Schiedler crop of 50" bales at SUvertoa. and
the Bosgs and Murphy crops, aggregating
a carload, at Harisburg. H. I. Hart
bought the Albright and Morley crops at
Mount Angel and the Hammlttee lot at
Eugene, amounting; In all to over a car
load. Most of the fuggles were bought
at jl to 22 cents.
There was no demand yesterday for con
tracts on the later crop, though some of
the dealers are holding: orders from the
East at IS cents. It would probably take
SO-cent offers how to interest growers.
A California wire reported that new Sac
ramento hops could be bought at 17 cents.
An estimate of U5.000 bales as the Cali
fornia crop was received from a reliable
The latest cables reported that weather

Recent consular advices state that ths
area under hop cultivation In Bohemia dur
ing 1912 was 3T,2t3 acres and ths yield w-as
34.23C.00O pounds. The leading districts for
the production of hops are Saa. Aushca
and Dauba. The production of ths Saas
district was S5.S0O.VOO pounds. These are
regarded as the finest hops produced in
the world and usually command ths high
est prices. Ths Auscha district produced
S, 564. 820 pounds and Dauba 1.710.000
pounds. Over three-fourths of ths total
hep crop of Austria was produced in Bo
hemia last year. This year, however, the
Bohemian crop will be decidedly short.
10-CET ADVANCE IX SCGAR.
Refiners Take Advantags of Opportunity to
Local sugar quotations were advanced 10
cents a hundred on all grades of refined
yesterday. This advance, which was ex
pected, was in sympathy with higher prices
In the East. Mall advices received from the
East yesterday say of the general sugar
"Consumption throughout ths country
has bsea heavy, for while withdrawals as a
rule have been small Individually, they
nave been numerous, and the aggregate is
large. This has resulted In the supplies In
the hands of distributors becoming much
reduced, and as they have been chary in
the placing of new contracts, it is thought
that the necessity of their providing for
future requirements will shortly compel
them to operate on a broader seals. The
strength of raws Is very pronounced, and
this sustains the firmness in refined. Ad-,
vices from Cuba say that holders are very
confident, refusing to consider concessions,
and In some instances they are asking
slight advances. The feeling abroad was
somewhat easier, but quotations for both
cane and beet sugar were practically un- t

CANAL AIDS APPLE MEN
Shipment to London Will Cost Less
Says British Dealer.
The opening of the Panama Canal
will mean a larger and better market
for Oregon and Washington apples In
London, as it will reduce shipping
charges and allow the fruit to be land
ed In better condition than Is now the
case. ' This is the opinion of C. M. Si
mons, a member of the Simons Fruit
Company, of London, who is now In
Portland. Mr. Simons said yesterday:
The large American apple crop last
year gave us our opportunity to Intro
duce box apples in England and on the
continent at reasonable prices. They
met with favor, and I anticipate a
larger market as the consequence. The
European demand for Western apples
will continue to grow if prices are kept
within reasonable bounds."
. Mr. Simons, who has been Investigat
ing crop conditions on the Coast, be
lieves the Oregon and Washington ap
ple crops will be about TO per cent as
large as last year. He estimates the
California crop at IS to 40 per cent less
than last year's.
