PRUNE TRADE HALTS
Demand Is Checked by High
- Prices Quoted.
Buyers Decline to Take. Hold at
"Lower Jjerel, as They Cannot SeU
at That ' Basis World's
Supply Not . Short.
After a more or lesa exoited opening, the
prune market ha developed Into a flat
affair, ao far aa actual business la con
cerned. There la no Inquiry for new prunea
either in the Northwest or In California.
Dealers have apparently made up their
minds that prices are too high and they
are ahowlng a disposition now to stand
back and await developments.
Instead of a acarclty; there appears to he
plenty of prunes -all over the world. The
crop In Oregon and Washington, of course.
Is light and will da well If It runs over
10.000,000 pounds, but "elsewhere the esti
mates that are. being made are more favor
able. California authorities are gradually
raising their figures, and the French and
Bosnian crops are making good progreaa
Under the circumstances buyers are In
active. They are averse to taking the ex
treme aide of the market now aa growers
were, alow In accepting bid prices earlier In
the season. Northwestern prunes can be
bought from growers at the present time
for 1 cent less than a month ago, but as
sales cannot be made even on that basis,
packers are not In the market.
XEW WHEAT DEMAND IS SI.OW
Lower Prices Offered by Dealers Do Not
Appeal to Farmers.
The course of foreign and Eastern wheat
markets la not atlmulatlng operations in the
new crop In the Northwest. Buyers have
prices out around 78 and 79 cents, but
growers are Indifferent to these Quotations
and dealers are also showing little Interest
on the buying side.
The spot wheat market continues steady,
with a moderate California demand.

WORSTED MILLS ARE WELL OCCUPIED
Woolen Slanufacturerg Not so Busy Com
plain of Advancing Wool Prices.
Worsted manufacturers in the East appear
to have plenty of orders on hand and their

they are still complaining of advancing wool

mills seem to have a fair business. Demand
for wools suitable for woolen mill purposes
is not heavy and Is more or less erratic
As a result of the prices of raw material

Rice Varieties Numerous.
Consular advices state that there are
nearly, or quite, 1000 varieties of rice in the

of these will prove nearly duplicates, but
tne actual number of varietlea la very great.

lug on work looking toward finding out the
beat dozen or so varieties from this great
number, and progreaa enough haa been made
to make it certain that If the work is con
tinued it will be poaalble within one or two
years more to send out these chosen varie
ties, and title make poaalble an increase of
from 10 to 20 per cent in the rice crop of
