Strength of Values Due to Un
favorable Crop Prospect
The Oregon hop market has become firmer
this week than It has been for some time
" -A number of good-sized orders for the
new crop nave been received from both do
inestia and foreign quarters. The Increased
demand ts attributed to the unfavorable crop
reports coming from various parts of Europe.
The following cable was received from
i.onaon yesterday: "Growers spraying In

ror 40.UOO pounds of the new crop at 15
cents. On Wednesday a contract of the
same size was seenred by them. In addition
to these 80.000 pounds, the same firm lafe
yesterday afternoon closed on 120,000 more
at the same price. The names of the sell
ers in these transactions were not learned.
The strength of the market is indicated by
the statement made by one of the most re
liable growers at Independence that he re
fused a bid of 15U cents during the day.
The inquiry Is not confined to English
ources, ior a dealer, with Eastern con
nectlons, yesterday offered 15 cents on con
tract for COO bales.
The turn for the better in futures has also
stimulated the spot market. A bid of .1814
cents was made In the forenoon at Salem
for a block of 200 bales of 1013a, and 17-
refusals were being taken in the coun
try. While the market is gaining strength from
a averse foreign prospects, it is fortunate for
Orsgeon growers that ideal weather and
growing conditions prevail in this state.
Crop news received in the past two days
from the vslley has been almost uniformly
favorable. Weather' conditions in Califor
nia have also improved.

Eastern- Markets Are Decidedly Strong.
- Comparison of Imports.
The- Eastern wool markets are decidedly
strong, but actual advances are small. Mills
are fighting the upward tendency of ' the
market, but are stocking up as fast as pos
sible before higher values are established.
In the past week's trading, Utahs made up
the bulk of the transfers, but there were
also good sales of Wyomlngs and Colorados.
Original Utah wools sold at 19 to 23 cents.
Colorados changed hands at 20 to 22 cents
and Wyomlngs at 18 to 23 cents. A block of
300,000 pounds graded medium and fine
medium Utah and Wyoming wool sold at 18
cents-for the tine medium and 24 cents for
the three-eighths blood. Scoured values or,
this lot were estimated at 55 cents for the
fine medium, 65 te 86 cents for half-blood,
61 to 02 cents for three-eighths blood and
45 cents or quarter-blood. A lot of 50.000
pounds medium graded territory wool sold
at 22 to 23 cents; estimated to cost SO

was 326.000. There is no marked change
from year to year in the area in plum or
chards. "The exportations of plum products for

"The principal markets for the plum prod
ucts of Servla are in Germany and Austria.
The mode of preparation of the plum prod
ucts in Servla is quite primitive, and a large
part of the exportations to Germany and
Austria are reprepared in those countries
before being put on the markets."
