FOREIGN CROP POOR
Barth Again Cuts Estimate of
HOP MARKET IS EXCITED
Oregon Dealers Bur at 21 Cents.
Bid of 22 1-2 Cents Made on
Large lot English
Almost dally euU In the estimate for
foreign crops are adding to the excitement In
the Oregon hop market. A cable was re
ceived yesterday from Barth, the most con
servative dealer In Germany, reducing his
estimate of the Continental crop, sent on
the preceding day. by 10.000 bales. No
English figures were received during the
day. but the English crop estimates have
been undergoing a general scaling down for
some time past. It Is now evident that
the European crops will be small, and prices
at this end are being readjusted to meet tne
Growers are selling with moderate free
dom as fas as their hops are baled. There
are plenty of buyers for every lot offered,
however, and under the clrcumatancee. the
tendency of the market cannot be other
wise than upward. The larger part of the
buying is still for export account.
An offer of 22 hi cents was made yester
day on 700 bales of choice Oregons and re
fused. Buying was heavy at from 20 to 21
centa. Among the lots purchased at the
latter price was that of Damon A Bohannon,
250 balea, at Independence, secured by Lacn
mund. One hundred bales of the Campbell
Walker crop at Eugene changed hands
at the same price.
Barth. of Nuremburg. cabled an estimate
of 673.000 cwt. fur the Continent, as fol
lows: Germany, 2S0.0OO; Austria, 220.000;
Belgium, 63.000: France, 00,000; Russia.
60.000. The Barth cable showed an entire
change of tone In the German market. He
said: 'Market continues very strong, due
to pm-chaslng on opinions of dealers and
Ironmonger cabled from London as fol
lows: "Market very firm Indeed. Buyers
begin to realise the shortness of supplies
and a rise may be expected. Cannot buy
under 170 shillings. Holders firm in their
views and not disposed to sell, even at
advance. Demand 200 shllllnga"
WHEAT TRADE OF LARGE VOLUME.
Buying I on Active Scale at linn Prices
at Country mints.
Wheat buying was on an active scale at
most country points yesterday. Farmers
offerings were fairly large, and with a good
demand well distributed. Among the ex
port and milling trade prices were firm all
around. Bluestem was quoted here at 88
cents and bids were put out In the country
en the basis of S9 cents. Club was quoted
at 805)81 cents.
The oats trade was quiet, but the market
held steady at S2H. Interior dealers are
looking for a freer selling movement.
Local receipts, In cars, were reported by
the Merchants' Exchange as follows:

Foreign crop conditions are summarised
by Broomhall as follows:
United Kingdom The weather la unset
tled and the recent rain has caused a delay
In harvesting, but greatly benefited roots
and pasture- Native supplies are increas
France A prominent firm in Paris esti
mates the wheat crop at 304.000.000 bush
els. (This compares with our agents esti
mate ot 800,000,000 bushels). The quality
of new wheat as offered is mostly good, and
offerings are showing a substantial Increase,
but buying of foreign wheat still continues.
Germany The weather Is favorable for
the finishing of harvest. Supplies of native
wheat have Increased. Some wheat has
sprouted as a result of recent rains.
Russia In the center and east wheat Is
yielding good, and arrivals are commencing
to show an Increase at the ports.
Roumania Rain Is delaying threshing
and fine warm weather Is urgently needed.
Dry. hot weather is also wanted for corn.
Bulgaria In the Bourgas district the
weather la favorable and harvesting Is pro
Hungary The outlook for corn Is unfa
vorable, as It Is too wet. The wet weather
has also effected wheat, and the quality has
been lowered. An unofficial report states
that the yield will be about sufficient for
India The seeding for wheat Is progress
ing, with the outlook very favorable. Part
ot the surplus wheat which waa not stored
has been damaged by the recent rains.
Australia Our agent cables that the acre
age In Victoria shows an increase of 400.
000 acres and the total increase In area
planted in the whole of Australia shows an
Increase of about 1,250,000 acres. The con
dition Is given as mostly favorable.
SUMMER FRUITS IX LESS DEMAND.
Long Season Drawing to an End Grapes
Come to Front.
The demand for Summer fruits is sub
siding and the Fall varieties are coming to
the front. Grapes are now taking the place
held by peaches a week ago. Among the
grape receipts yesterday was a carload of
Concords front Yakima, which were offered
at 20 cents In full baskets. This is unusu
ally low for early Concords, and they will
probably be quickly absorbed for canning.
Concords also came In from a number of
local points. The .first ear of Oros Coleman
grapes cleaned up rapidly at fl.G0Ol.TB In
Peaches were In fairly large supply and
dragged at 25 to 60 cents. Cantaloupes are
also moving more slowly. The season for
this fruit, which has been a long one. Is
drawing to an end. Pears and plums were
slow. More Interest Is being shown In the
ARRTVAL9 OF POULTRY ARE LARGER
Extreme Prices of Last Week Not Kow
Receipts of poultry were larger yester
day than for some time post. As a conse
quence, the extreme prices lately realised
on hens and springs were not obtainable.
The former were quoted at It and the lat
ter at IS cents. Other kinds of poultry were
unchscged in price. Dressed meats also
sold at the old prices.
The egg market was firm with 15 cents
the prevailing price on selected candled
stock. Butter and cheese were unchanged.
