THE MOUSING OREGOMAS. 5SATUKIM.. AL'UUST 3U, 15 filGBE FUGGLES SQLD Bulk of Crop in Harrisburg Section Moved. BUYERS PAY 22 AND 221-2 Demand for Later Hops Is Held in Check by TTncertalnty as to Vields in This Country and Europe. All the remaining crepe of Fuggle heps but three in the Harrtsburr; section vera bought yesterday. The prices paid wara 13 and 22 cant. No trading waa reported In tha late crop. Thera wara order at 18 to 19 cents tor con tract, but growers would not aell at these prices. It looks now as If operations will be suspended until tha hops ara In the bale. Conflicting advices ara arriving aa to the alia of tha European crops and this keeps buyers in the air. Letters from abroad also Indicate that there Is the same differ ence of opinion aa to tha probable extent of the American yield. Consequently the market la in a waiting attitude and until something more than mere guesses can be put out. buyers are certain to pursue a conservative policy. A cable received front Alost yesterday re sorted that in tha Hallertau and other im portant districts the crop waa suffering from a bad attack of red spider and tha weather was hot. 'The crop waa coming down below estimates. In Belgium 150 marks was paid, which i equivalent to 84 cents. These are hops that compete with Americans in the London market. Brewers ara always Inclined to take a bearish view of the crop situation, yet the London Brewers' Journal says: "We have rarely experienced so much difficulty In estimating the crop as we have this season. It Is abundantly palpable that there cannot be such a large production as there was In 1912 namely. S73.43S cwts.: tha difficulty Is to judge approximately how much short of that quantity It will be. We shall, perhaps, be somewhere near the mark If wa put it at about 800.000 cwts. more or less. "The demand for consumption, acting on excessively small stocks, has caused prices to rise considerably. The position la ac centuated by reports from the Continent. Ac cording to all estimates there will be a serious shortage' there and instead of this country taking from that quarter some 200.000 cwts., as we did last year, the Con tinent. In all probability, this year will be Importers from us." Tha Maidstone Oasatte of August IS said of tha crop prospect In England: The natural progress of the plant has been seriously delayed and It le not yet pos sible to say how small the yield may prove to be. Tha one thing certain Is that the crop will be considerably below an average, and It must fall short of last year's yield by 20 or 25 per cent per acre at least. A good deal of speculation Is taking place In the shape of bets and even money has been laid against an all-round Euglish crop of m cwts. per acre. To sum up the general r. ports from all districts, growers may. If granted favorable weather, eventually se pura a crop of about 9 cwts. per acre, but If the cold snap continues much longer even this estimate may have to be considerably reduced. "If the English yield is less than half a Ion per acre (which seems now to be a certainty and the Centlnental yield only equals half that of last year, prices equal to those secured late In the season of 1911 will be more than Justified." A circular received from Cattley. Grldley A Co., of London, says: "In spite af the cool and cloudy weather those plantations that have been thorough ly cleansed of the blight have made prog ress during the week, and, with normal tem peratures and conditions, give promise of quite a full average crop, though scarcely as heavy as last year. The slack and blight ed plantations show little change for the better. The harvest will be rather later than usual. Continental reports speak of more favorable weather conditions and some Im provement In most districts, though blight has dona much damage. Estlmataa still suggest a good half of last year's produce on the whole. All markets are quiet, but firm, with stocks of last year's and old hops very short Indeed.' CANTALOCPES FBOM PAYETTE COME Peaches In Large Supply and Active De mand Tomato Lower. The first car of Payette Valley canta loupes was started for Portland yesterday and will reach thia city Monday. The Idaho cantaloupes long ago established a reputa tion for excellency and their arrival on the market Is always eagerly awaited by tha trade. Usually they sell at high prices, but the growers have made reason able quotations this year and the first ship ment will be put on sale here at 11.75 w 2 a crate. Tha market waa well supplied with other cantaloupes yesterday and $1.00 was the top price. Inferior cants sold aa low as $5 cents. Turtock cantaloupes of good quality are still coming along and sell well. Two cars were received yeaterday and two mora are rolling. Tha peach market was in good shape, with a big atock on hand and an active de mand. Among the receipta waa tha flrat car of Taklma Elbertas, which sold at S3 ta TO cents. Tha tlrst straight car of Muscat grapes also arrived and they were quoted at $19 1.25 a crate. Tha banana market could not well be weaker. Seven cars were unloaded yester day "and nve more are due today. Thera haa been an overstock of tomatoes an tha market all the week. Yesterday two full ears arrived from Dlllard and prices went to pieces. Offerings were made at low as 30 cents a box. ' A car of sweet potatoes arrived and they were quoted lower at 82 85 a crate. EXPORT IXOrn TRADE SLOWS DOWN lacertalnty as ta Freight Rates Checke Business. Owing to tbo uncertainty regarding the steamship ratea to prevail In October and November, export flour buying, which has not been brisk at any time this season, has some to almost a complete step. It Is be lieved that when the freight altuation Is settled the Japanese buyers will show in terest In the market, and It la alas likely that within a month the Chinese demand will revive. Tha wheat market continues quiet. So gar as club Is concerned, the undertone of the market is easy and 79 cents is quoted as full value, but bluestem is firm at 63 ' cents. The spread between club and blue stem is gradually widening and It is net thought that It will get closer. Weekly foreign wheat shipments were s follows: This Wk. Last Wk. Last Tr.

Tha almond market la advancing rapidly because of tha short crop In California, i ..e present local quotation on IXLs Is 20 cents. Foreign advlcea eay the crop of Tarragona almonds will be a large one. and it may be that Importations will ba brought Into tha Western markets. Walnuts continue firm and scarce. Man churian nuta are being largely used on the Coast In the absence of native stock. As the time for the heavy consumption of Brazil nuts draws near, tha position as regards this commodity becomes more clear ly defined, and It la easy to eee that the stock of good nute of the new crop la not sufficient for the usual Fall requirements and prices naturally have a hardening ten dency. An advance of half a cent a pound both for the medium Paras and the large Manaos Is noted. Stocks are small, and with any ordinary demand would become exhausted long before the holiday trade waa actually over. Poultry Scarce and Higher. The poultry market was firm and higher. Not enopgh chickens were received to fill orders, and choice hens sold readily at le cents. Dressed meate were also firm, with fancy veal bringing 18 centa. Pork was quoted at 12 cents, with an upward tendency. The egg market was firm at unchanged prices. There were no new developments la the butter or cheese trades. Whits Beans Are Weaker.- The crop of beans In California, while short of last year's. Is nevertheless coming down better than was expected early in the seison. and as a consequence, prices have declined from a quarter ta half a cent. Ismail whites are now quoted by Jobbers at 6 cents, and large whlteo at cent. Bank Clearing. Bank clearings of the Northwestern cities yesterday were as follows: Clearings.

TRADE IS GROWING Commercial Operations in East on Larger Scale. TARIFF INFLUENCE SMALL Expansion of Business Helped b) Improved Monetary " Situation. Iron and Steel Conditions Better Than Expected. . KEW YORK, Auc. 20. Dua'i Bavltv will say tomorrow: Evidences of reviving commercial and In dustrial activity atMdily multiply and bust ness optimism is becoming widespread. The restrictive Influence ot tariff revision Is somewhat less manifest, and the expan sion in trade Is facilitated by the improved monetary situation. Increasing preparations for remote needa being stimulated by the broader absorption of commercial paper at lower rates. Conditions In the Iron and steel trades have been rather better than expected this month. Reports from the dry goods mar kets continued gratifying.

Failures this week numbered against trl last year, and 8 In Canada, compared with 27 a year ago. TEXTILE MARKETS ARE MORE ACTIVE Mills, Instead of Malting- Ceaceeeiaau, Ask Higher Price. NEW YORK, Aug. 29. Bradst reefs to morrow will say: I n some respects trade reports suggest somewhat more irregularity. Western ad vices Indicate conservative buy ins, pre sumably a reflex of repents of reduced crop yields, but at the same time they proclaim that the trade Is equal to or in excess of that done at this time last year, when op erations certainly were growing. Oa the other hand, the more important Eastern markets, particularly those having to do with textiles, display more vim, house trade has enlarged, and mills. Instead of making concessions, are insisting upon higher prices. Failures for the week were 2U9. which compares with 28 In liU2.
