SMALL CROP SURE
England Has 35,613 Acres in
Hops This Year.
OFFICIAL RETURNS MADE
Xew Plantings Are Far Less Than
Expected At Estimated Yield of
7 Cwt. Crop "Will Be Un
der 2'50,00 Cwt,
The British government's official esti
mate of the hop acreage In England u
announced yesterday as S6,(1S acres, cablet
to this effect being received in tha fore
noon by a number of the dealer. As com
pared with tha acreage return of last year,
thia shows an Increase of 782 aores, or
about 1SO0 acres less than hop men had ex
peoted Tha fonowlng table grves tha English
hop acreaga In past years:
Tear. Acres. (Tear.
Allowing for a crop of 7 cwt to tha acre,
which la tha estimate of most of the hop
authorities In England, the total yield this
rwr will fall under 250,000 cwt. as com
pared with tha official figures of S72,4SS
cwt. last year.
A cable received from Ironmonger, of Lon
don, said: "AH estimates are reduced under
250,000. Market is quiet and absolutely
steady. Continental markets are very firm
and unsettled. Difficult to uote actual
Another cable received was as follows:
-Highest continental estimate 00,000 cwt.
Sales made as high as 873 marks. Max
imum estimate for England 360.000 cwt."
This German Quotation Is equal to 80
cents a pound, the highest price realized
so far this year. With tha foreign markets
so strong It is a mystery to tha dealers
why the English buyers are holding aloof
from Oregon hopa There was not a single
foreign order In this state yesterday, al
though there was further buying for Eng
nh account In 'Washington at 26 H cents.
Evidently the foreigners are trying to break
the OreKon market. "Whether or not tney
succeed will depend on the attitude of
growers here. A few have sold in the past
day or two at low prices, one grower letting
co at 21tt cents, but tha majority refuse to
make such concessions, though many of
them want to realize now.
A dispatch from North Yakima said:
"Poole & Mitchell have bought 120 hales
of hops from W. R. Stuart at 25 H cents,
and another deal of 800 bales at 24 H cents
is reported. Tha purchases were made on
Eastern account. Growers here are holding
against offers made.
Beer sales In tha United States during
August. 191S. were 7.2T7.528 barrels, an in
crease of 656,542 barrels over the same
month in 112.
Imports of hogs into Great Britain less
exports for the year ending August 81. 191!.
were 222.472 hundredweights, as against 84.
. 386 hundredweights . during the preceding
year and 178.158 hundredweights two years
SO PRESSURE TO BITS" WHEAT JfOW
Market Is Weak, but Farmers Are Not Forc
The wheat market continues very quiet.
and In tha absence of demand, prices have
a weak undertone. European markets were
dull and easy, and there was practically no
Inquiry from the Orient for either wheat or
flour. Millers are well stocked with wheat
and are therefore Inactive. There has been
a big run here In the past week, and all
dealers are busy taking cars of receipts.
Farmers are not pressing sales In spite
of the condition of the market, and not
many of them are disposed to accept the
prices now offered. Club was quoted yester
day at 7879 cents, forty-fold at 80 cents
and 89 cents was an outside price on blue
stem. Oats and barley were also quiet.
Local receipts. In cars, were reported by
the Merchants' Exchange as follows:

OBAXGE MOVEMENT STARTS IX NORTH
California Crop Estimated at 80 to 90 Per
Cent of Normal.
California oranges will begin moving about
November 1. according to William Bluhn,
tha fruit -broker, who has Just returned
from a trip through the Southern state. The
crop, he says, will be 80 to 90 per cent of
normal, and the growers expect to realize
good prices. The lemon crop will be con
siderably under the average, as they were
hurt more by the freeze than oranges. The
grapefruit crop will be a fair one.
Fruit trade was active yesterday, with a
sufficient suppyq of everything except Malaga
grapes and rlpa bananas.
There was a moderate stock of peaches on
hand and prices were steady. Local Con
cord grapes were fairly plentiful at 15 10
cents. Another car of Cape Cod cranber
ries arrived. A mixed car of cssabas and
cantaloupes Is due Friday.
RlekreaH Growers Are Holding.
RICKBEALL. Or Oct. 1. (Special.)
Confident that the price of hops will reach
tha SO-cent mark before long, the growers
here are holding their hops, and conse
quently there has been no activity In the
market in this section. Last season some
growers contracted at a low figure early
and soon saw that they had lost money
when the price rose. D. T. Hodge contract
ed bis crop last season at 23 cents a pound,
and others nearly at tha same price.
The hops in this district yielded as wen as
usual this year.
Top Fries for Oregon Fears.
Tha United States Government has solved
at Medford the problem of proper refriger
ating of fruit so that growers can delay
the marketing of their product for at least
two weeks. A carload of Rogue River
Bartlett pears shipped by tha Rogue River
Fruit & Produce Association was sold at
New Tork at 83.15 a box. which means 3X30
a box f. o. b. Medford. The price is be
lieved to he the record received by growers
for Bartlett pears In the United States this
season. The carload was the last of a lot
of four that had been placed in tha new
860,000 storage built at Medford.
Better Demand for Hens.
There was a better demand for hens yes
terday, and 15 cents was paid for tha best,
but Springs and ducks were weak.
There was also an easier feeling In tha veal
market, with 15 cents the top quotation.
Fork was steady at 12 cents.
Eggs wer firm, with sales made as high
as 37 cents.
There were no new developments in the
butter or cheese markets.

NEW YORK. Oct L Unfler the lead of
the coppers, which made tha best showing of
any group In the market, stocks moved up
ward today. Union Pacific Reading and
Canadian Pacific rose a point each, but
the advance In general was small, and its
chief significance lay in the fact that the
decline of the previous two days was ef
fectually checked. Business was concen
trated largely In tha speculative favorites.
The market opened with a general ad
vance, largely In response to the rise of
American stocks In London. The market
moved irregularly for a time, but grad
ually developed strength. The undertone
wsb strong tha remainder of the day.
The exceptional rise In coppers was as
sociated with the advance In tha metal in
London, and tha strong showing made in
