oats are unchanged, though these cereals
are moving In a very limited way.
The market for new crop wheat Is quiet,
but the undertone is steady. Chicago was a

FOREIGN HOP CROPS ARE INFESTED
Cables Report Lice Increanlng in English
and Continental Yards.
Trading is almost at a standstill. All the
local dealers will go to Aurora today to
attend the meeting of the Hop Growers and
The following cable was received from
"Lice are Increasing In all yards on Con
tinent and in England. Market Is firmer
for Continental hops." A second cable con
firmed the report of increasing vermin.
English market conditions are shown by
London dealers' trade circulars as follows:
Wild, Neame A Co. For the time of year
thefe Is a fair Inquiry and a quiet business
continues to be done at the present level of
values. There are some reports of "fly"
from the plantations.
Thornton & Manger There ha been an
appreciable increase In the volume of trade
during the last week, but prices have not
been influenced, so no change can be re
ported in the currency. A fair Inquiry con
tinues. Manger A Henley There has been more
Inquiry during the past week and a fair
businoss has been done for the time of year.
Price remain unchanged.
W. H. & H. Le May There Is a little
more inquiry on this market and some busi
ness has been done at the prices now rul
ing. Business on the Worcester market con
tinue low. The tendency of values Is in
buyers favor and less money has to be ac
cepted to do business, but growers holding
stock are not anxious to press sales and are
confident that prices will recover before, the
new crop comes to market. Recent cold
weather has checked plantation growth.

Cache and Suck Accurately Described,
but Seattle Claims All Found and
Sleuth Are Pnasled.
Local detectives who received Infor
mation from Arthur James Waters, the
confessed robber of the house of Mrs.
Bertha Loewenberg, 742 Hoyt street,
four months ago, that he buried the
plunder in the backyard of the home
of his mother, Mrs. Edith Harvey, of
2143 Sixty-first street, Seattle, were
chagrined yeBterday when informed
that the loot fotlnd in the place -was all
plunder from Seattle homes.
Detectives Swennes and Moloney, who
secured the arrest of "Waters in Ban
Jose recently, were told by him that a
diamond necklace, a solitaire diamond
ring, a coral pin and coral ring;, a
camera and a grun, all parts of the
Loewenberg plunder, were in two sacks
in the place named. They do ,not be
lieve that Waters lied to them.
Further investigation of the matter
will be made before they will be con
tent to believe that the stuff found in
Seattle was not partially at least Port
land property. Yesterday mornlni
Sheriff Cudihee telegraphed that none
or tne siuir round was that described,
but that it was all In the place named
by Waters, in two sacks.

TRADE IS GROWING
Advices From Leading Centers
Are More Optimistic.
SENTIMENT HAS IMPROVED
Healthier Tone la Iry Goods Market
and Larger Inquiry for Wool. ,
Pig Iron Baying- Is on
NEW YORK, June 5. Dun'i Review to
morrow will say:
Advices from the leading commercial and
Industrial centers are more optimistic and
the improved sentiment Is reflected in some
expansion in the- volume of trade.
There is a healthier tone to the dry goods
market. A better inquiry Is noted for wool,
which has lost none of its former strength.
The best feature of the iron and steel
situation is the recent buying; of pig Iron
by leading cast iron pipe interests, it be
ing estimated that 100.000 tons were In
volved. In regard to copper, the demand has
been so dull that quotations have been forced
to lower levels.
"Failures this week are 818. against 236
last year; Canada. 80, against 81.
TRADE CONDITIONS HAVE IMPROVED
Jobbing Business In Northwest lias Broad
ened Textile Mills Employed.
NEW YORK, June 5. Bradstreet's tomor
row will say:
Sentimentally and fundamentally, ' trade
conditions are better, even though irregular
ity is still in evidence. Jobbing trade at
many points outside of the Southeast and
particularly In the Northwest has broadened
and larger sales of southern pig iron are
noted. Wool is active at strong prices. Tex
tile mills are fairly well employed. Crop
conditions have Improved and railway traffic
On the other hand, finished steel takes
tone principally from sentiment and not from
any actual growth in business. Employment
Is irregular and industrial operations, taken
In a collective sense, are relatively slow.
For the week: Failures, 328, against 215
last year; wheat exports, $4,602,339 bushels,
against 7,&41,259; bank clearings, $3,231,
327,000, an increase of 0.4 per cent over

STOCK MARKET STRONG THOUGH
TRADING IS L'STLESS.

Effect on Prices Supply Avail,
able Is Not Large,
NEW YORK. June 5. An undercurrent of
strength was perceptlbla through today's
listless trading in stocks. The foreign In
fluence was unfavorable and It was chiefly
on this account that the early market here
was inclined to droop.
London reported selling there by tha con
tinent and In turn put out 1O.000 shares here.
Most American stocks were lower in London.
The supply of stocks was not large.
evidence of underlying firmness lay In
the strength of varlou specialties, such as
the fertilizers, the local tractions and
Wells-Farg which gained 1 to 3 points.
Westlnghoue was the one weak spot, that
stock being depressed by the strike of the
company's employes. Foreign exchange rates
were steady. Demand sterling touched
$4.8805, the high record for a long; period.
Anotner engagement or gold for Europe.
amounting in this Instance to $2,000,000, was
arranged. A gain in cash by the banks on
the week of $2,000,000 or more was indi
cated by the known movement of currency.
Dealings in bonds were unusually diversi
fied, considering the limited volume of busi
ness. Irregularity prevailed, with distinct
weakness at times in the Rock Island, St.
Louis & San Francisco and Western Mary
land Issues. Local traction bonds ruled
higher, as did some of the more important
convertible mortgages. Total sales bonds.

was bearish and a sharp decline was report
ed at Budapest. Subsequently export sales
at Duluth tended to cause a rally. The ef

Strength formed the rule In corn the
greater part of the day. owing to extreme
lightness of country offers and to a fair
demur here from shippers.
Oats weakened because of rain in dis
tricts that had been complaining of drouth.

Sacramento Finn Cites Delays -Due to
Alleged CnaaBTe) la Flans and
Asks Pay for 'Extras.
The recovery of $230,829.37 from the
City of Portland Is asked In a suit
filed in United States District Court
yesterday by tha Schaw-Batcher Com
pany, of Sacramento, who constructed
the second Bull Run pipeline. .
Of the amount asked, 830,000. is tor
interest on the main sum from Novem
ber 4, 1911, to June 4, 1914. a
The other amounts which make the
grand total of the sum demanded are
mainly for "extras," which the com
plaint declares were made necessary
by changes from the contract plans,
made as the work progressed.
Because, it is alleged, the city en
gineer prohibited the use of sufficient
blasting powder for fear of Injuring;
the first pipeline, already constructed
and supplying the city with water.
J 10.00 J Is asked. The allegation that
one set of plans was sent to tne plant
where the pipe was to be made and
another to the engineer In the field is
the basis for demanding- $7000.
Two claims for the alleged delay of
the city in arettingr its plans and pro
files to the pipe factory, causing; the
work at the factory to become so ardu
ous that the men went on strike for
more wages, aggregate $96,000.
A change in the route of the line is
cited as a cause for asking $16,000. and
right-of-way changes made at Gresham,
involving great difficulties, afe cited.
A further delay cost the contractors
$11,000 in overhead expenses, tha com
Bonuses of $16,000 are asked because
