Libera! Shipments to C.io From Portland and
A large amount of export flour business
has been done recently with the West Coast
of South America. Some of the Puget Sound
mills have filled orders of considerable size,
and Portland mills have also enjoyed a share
of the business. The prices are said to be
low,1 considering the high cost of wheat. But
for this demand the export flour trade would
be dull, indeed. No business is passing with
the Orient and none is expected soon. Ad
vices from Hongkong. North China ports.
Japan and Manila are of adequate supplies
on hand, and some of these markets are
overstocked. In South China there is still
difficulty in distributing flour, owing to
Tatents are quoted steady, with a fair do
mestic movement for this time of year. Mill
feeds of all kinds are firm and unchanged.
A deadlock exists in the wheat market.
There Is demand to be satisfied, but buyers
refuse to raise their bids and sellers will not
make concessions. Some club on the docks
here was to be had yesterday at 93 cents,
but not much of it. Uealers who have
bought wheat for resale are generally hold
ing out for stiff rates and farmers turn
down offers at prices lately current.
Local receipts, in cars, were reported by
the Merchants SXclfarrge as follows:

Conditions in New York State are reported
by the Watervitle Times a follows:
"There has been but little improvement
In weather conditions iere during the past
week and work in the hopyards is still sev

we have been able to gather the hop acre

same as last year, the fairly remunerative

for growers to conti.iue the business in

caused by the attack of mold."

"The wheat plant w intered unusually
well, ami it is not to be expected that the
lo-year average of abandonment ha oc
curred this year. On the other hand, a
crop that Is in very high condition on
April l. as in the case this year. Is more
susceptible to depreciation later In the
season than a crop having a lower con
dition on April 1.
"The final estimate of production of
Winter wheat in 1913 was ri23.361.0O0
bushels (the largest ever recorded), and In
liMa It was :i9,yi.ooo bushels."
