at Arlington Contracting in
Idaho Districts Late
Business in increasing in the wool market
as shearing progresses at pointH east of the
mountains, and In the next week or two
trade is expected to be very active. Several
of the buyers have gone over Into, Utah,
where a little wool remains unsold, but they
irlll be back In Oregon next week.
Shearing is under way on a large scale
round Arlington, where Smythe Bros, are
removing the clip from their big band of
25.000 sheep. No word was received yes
terday of selling in that section, but buyers
are on the ground and developments re
Several clips of later shorn Yakima, wools
vere bought yesterday by Isidore Koshland,
cf this city. The purchases, which were of
tine wools, were made In the Snnnyslde and
Mabton sections at prices ranging from 12
to 13' cents.
A number of important Idaho clips have
been contracted for In the past few days,
particularly those of Ormsby, Sklllern, Scott,
Anderson and Bettls, In the Boise and Hailey
districts. The prices paid were from 15 to
In the Willamette. Valley operations have
been limited, as not much shearing has been
done yet, owing to the 'unsettled weather.
The few clips purchased have brought from
do to 18 cents.
ORDERS FOB WHEAT ARE NOW 8MAIX
With Demand Slack, Market Has an Kasler
The week opened with the wheat market
as Inactive as last week's. The demand
was light and prices were more or less
nominal. Although stocks are" small, the
slackness of the inquiry tends to have a de
pressing effect on values, and this Is In
creased by the excellent crop prospects and
the certainty of an early harvest. Comment
ing on the general situation in the world's
wheat market, Broomhall says:
'World's shipments are fairly liberal, con
sidering the smallness from India and Ar
gentina, while Russia, Danube and North
American contribution is considered liberal,
in view of the fact that, navigation is not
fully reopened. The total weekly shipments,
however, are equal to estimated require
ment, which may safely be placed at 12,
000.000 bushels, and even this level Is not
unlikely to be surpassed, as the demand
from Germany and low countries, also Medi
terranean countries and France, are large
and perhaps the demand from the United
Kingdom may prove large during the Spring
and Summer. Iarge buying has been held in
abeyance for a considerable time, but may
revive at any time, probably when stimu
lated by adverse crops reports. Continued
mailer shipments from Argentina and India
and smaller shipments from Australia from
now on should more or less offset the larger
aupplies from Russia,, Danube and North
America, and the bulk of the demand will
be thrown upon countries where holders are
firm. "Where markets are sensitive, much de
pends on the progress of the new European
crops. - Russian holders are sure to- be slow
sellers unless the new crop promises well."
The official Russian crop report, as given
by Broomhall. shows, the wheat crop to be
62,000.000 bushels over the previous est!
mate and more than 200,000,000 bushels over
last year's outturn.
Reports of the new Russian crop are uni
formly favorable. Snow has fallen on sev-
eral occasions recently, and this has added
to the moisture as the weather generally Is
mild. Arrivals at ports are Increasing and
most of the rivers are now open to traffic
and larger receipts are expected shortly.
Prices for wheat hold steady, with Mediter
ranean countries absorbing.
