HOP GROWERS HOLD
Not Forcing Their Crops
. . . . .
BEARS WOULD BREAK PRICE
Firm Conditions Prevail In East and
Europe, Showing Values Quot
ed in This State Are
Oat of Line.
Hop markets are firm all over the world.
except In Oregon. In this state, an enrorx
la being made by short sellers to get prices
down to m low level, by taking advantage oi
the present lull In buying to start a selling
panlo among the growers. It has not suc
ceeded, however, and the growers show no
sign of losing their heads. It Is true tnat
a large number, of them are ready to sell
Bow, but they are not forcing their hops
on the market at sacrifice prices.
Thera Is no reason why hops should be
selling as low as 25 cents In Oregon when
they are worth 40 cents and better In New
York Etats and 40 and 43 cents In Eng-
land. The Waterville (N. Y.) Times of
September 26 reported sales of BOO to 600
bales at 40 cents and a fair-sized lot at
Coooeretown brought 42 cents.
The London market holds firm although
the English buyers are not sending order
here. Ironmonger cabled from London yi
terday: "Market Is Ann but quiet. Gen
eral expectation Is that prices will go
higher." Continental cables are also firm.
Although there Is an absence of export
business on the local market. Western
Washington has orders. Hugh Herren,
buyer for a London house, freely offered
28 H cents In Western Washington yester
day without finding sellers. A Yakima mes
sage reported a 25H cent sale there.
Business has not entirely ceased In Ore
gon, however. Transactions are scattered.
but there are enough of them to Indicate
a steady 25 cent market for choice hops.
Buyers are, of course, paying less for lower
grades. T. A. Llvesley at Co. are reported
to have bought the Ketser, Nortnesa and
other lota at Silverton at 26 cents and the
Whit lot of 200 bales at 23 cents. H. L.
Hart paid 25 cents for two crops In the
Eugene section. The Kola Nela Hop Com
pany secured a carload from Talkald, of
Silverton. at 26 cents. H. L. Bents has
also been a recent buyer at 25 cents.
WHEAT BUYERS OUT OF MARKET
Regard Present Prices aa Too High, bnt
Fanners Will Not Accept Leas.
Most of the wheat buyers were out of
the market yesterday, except at reduced
prices. Farmers were not disposed to accept
these local bids, and consequently trading
operations were on a very moderate scale.
Buyers quoted full values as 79 cents for
club, 80 cents for forty-fold and 69 cents
Oats were quiet and the market was re
ported to be weak. The barley trade was
also , slow.
Local receipts In cars were reported by the
Merchants Exchange as follows:

United Kingdom The harvesting of wheat

Russia Threshing returns are generally
satisfactory, both regarding quantity and
quality. Arrivals at the porta for shipment
are large. The outlook for corn as regards
quality la favorable.
Houmanla The weather la clear and
warm, favoring threshing and also the corn
crop. Arrivals of wheat at the ports show a
good Increase. The International Institute
of Bome estimates the wheat crop at 68,000,-

Bulgaria The Institute of Rome estimates
the wheat crop at 60.000,000 bushels (last
year 44,000,0 0 0 bushels). This estimate Is
believed to be too optimistic.
Hungary The weather Is more favorable
for corn, it being clear and warmer and
the outlook for this crop Is more hopeful.

cial.) Local warehousemen estimate that
80 per cent of the 1911 grain crop of the
Klickitat Valley has been hauled to market
Klickitat wheatgrowers have been firm hold
ers for higher prices and very little wheat
has been sold since the slump in the grain
market about the time harvest started. R.

Union at Goldendale, says that about one

rmr.fiO. Sent. 30. World's available
supply figures, showing an increase nearly
double that or a year ago. acted as a -weigm
today on the price of wheat. Although the
market was steadv at the close, latest quo
tatlons were 4o to c lower. Corn lost
lifDVa to lo net and oats 0 to 0o.
In crovlsions the outcome was a decline
varying from a shade to 400.
(Moat of the buying of wheat seemed to
be merely for the purpose of covering short
sales. Announcement was made that the
world's available stock now exceeded last
year's total by more than 25,000.000 bushels.
Liverpool dispatches, telling of liberal Cana
dian offers and ot Dig Russian shipments
looked for, tended to give bears an aavan
tare from the outset.
In the corn crowd general selling of Sep
tember proved the main feature. Most of
the business, however, was in small lots.
Oats had a heavy undertone. The reason
anoeared to He in Canadian competition.
Liquidating sales by noiaers easea tne
provision market. The only decided de-
oll n a, however, was in oeptemner pora.
