HOP TRADE WAITING
No Activity in Any of American
CROP PROSPECTS GOOD
World's Yield Promises to Equal
Thut of Last Year, but Carry
over Will Be Less Condi
tions in England.
There are no tigns of activity in tha hop
market In any quarter. Buyers on th
Coast and in the East are in a waiting mood,
and exporters show no Interest.
Crop prospects generally are from fair to
food. Conditions, domestic and foreign,
are almost Identical with a rear ago. It
cannot be said, however, that the crop 1:
safe, as there Is opportunity in the next si
weeks for material changes to occur.
Taking a broad view of the situation, ft
nay be said that the world's yield prom
Ue. at the present time, to be the same as
In 1913. and requirements will also be the
same, but the market has this advantage
over last year's, the fact that the carry
over Is only a third as large.
The Oregon yards axe making a fine ap
pea ranee. Very few Hce are to be found
and there Is hardly any spraying, except
on the low lying lands.
The English crop. In the main. Is doing
well, according to the following detailed re
ports in the Kentish Observer, of July 2:
Ash-Xext-Sandwlch The brilliant sun
shine and higher temperature have greatly
Improved the bfne. which now looks like
reaching at least an average quantity
very fruitful quality. Lice are kept unde
control by successive washings. The situ
ft .on is still critical and only a few dayi
elapse until the leaves begin to show honey
dew. Burr can be found In the Karly
Whites and forward Bramllngs. No mould
as yet to be found.
Canterbury and district The bine h
made rapid development since the hot wea
ther set In, and the burr is already coming
out on the Early Whites. All the bes
cultivated plantations are giving excellent
promise, and there should be an average
crop of very tine quality. The bine is now
practically clean, but washing has still been
going on in some grounds during the pres
loud hurst district (Weald) The drought
and tropical heat are proving rather too
inurh for the weaker bine, but on the best
rulrivated grounds the blna is dwtng re
markably well and looks like growing
large crop. Vermin Is still troublesome and
some g.-owers are continuing to wash.
Iedway Valley All the well-established
bine throughout the valley continues to look
full of vigor and Is evidently thriving In the
bot weather, though the young plants would
undoubtedly benefit by rain. Tbere is not
so much washing being done now, though
pom fly is still found.
Pet hum and d5trict Where the hops have
not been thoroughly washed there is enough
rmin to caue anxiety. The cultivation Is
very good In most grounds. Rain would do
all hops good, more especially the young
rones. which are beginning to show the ef
fects of th drought.
Sturry Hops show far too much honey-
dew on the leaves and a dryness and entire
lack of vigor. The washer Is at work con
tlnually. Rain is wanted badly. The bine
ts st a standstill and makes no progress.
They do not look at all promising.
Surrey In the majority of the grounds In
the Farnham district the bine is progressing
very satisfactorily under the Influence of
tho hot weather, but in others there is not
r that vigorous appearance which was appar
ent a week ago. and rain Is very much
wanted. Washing was still in operation st
tho beginning of the present week, but In
a good many grounds the aphis attack h
been so light that It has not been considered
necessary to go to the expense of washing.
Worcestershire The brilliant weather Is
having a good effect on the more vigorous
Mno In the Worcester hop yards, and the
Mathons and B ram lings are looking part leu
larly well. Fugglea, however, appear to be
In want of moro rain, which Is also ur
gently required on the poorer soils, where
tho blno Is not so strong. Washing is still
being done In many yards, but tho aphis
attack Is being gradually overcome.
Conditions In Belgium, according to a re
tort from A lost, dated June 2T. were:
"The weather, by day time. Is favorable
tho nights, however, are rather cool. The
thick; licet mentioned In my previous report,
hove brought deposit, and we must now
wait to see If they Increase further. The
Belgian quotations. 70s. elf., for September
October delivery, aro moderate enough to at
tract buyers attention.
WHEAT MARKET VttD K KTOXE STEADY
Japanese Aro Making Inquiries, but Indi
cate Low Prices.
Tho Sharp advances In the Liverpool and
Chicago markets yesterday had a steadying
effect on the wheat market here, but there
was no change la prices, as buyers consider
quotations already too high. In view of the
Inability to make a&lea. Farmers are not
dUpoaod 'to come down In their views, and
it Is early yet for them to bo much of a
factor on the selling side of the market.
Tho only buyers In evidence aro tho Jap
anese, and their bids aro materially under
Tho flour situation remains as previously
reported. There is no Oriental Inquiry and
there mar be none of consequence until
lato n tho season. Tho Japanese In the
meantime are Interested only In wheat, and
Judging from their present offers their in
terest In this Is not keen.
Oats and barley aro quiet and unchanged.
A little new-crop grain bay Is coming on
Local receipts in cars were reported by

below tho ten-year average, but prospects
declined as the season advanced, the No

VALENCIA ORANGES ARE ADVANCING
Market Is Quarter Higher Than Week Ago,
but Price Is Still Cheap.
There has been a continuous advance In
Valencia oranges and prices In California
are now 35 cents higher than a week ago,
The local quotation of 32.75'3 on fancy
grades, however, is reasonable. Valencias
are now from 75 cents to $1.25 cheaper
than usual at this time. The qual
ity of the crop is fine. Nothing but Va
lencia oranges are now left In the South.
Five cars of oranges and two of lemons
will be on the steamer out Friday.
Local receipts of peaches were heavy. A
large percentage of the Oregon fruit was
soft and sold low. Prices on the street had
an extreme range of 25 to 90 ocnts. Not
many California peaches were on hand.
Watermelons and cantaloupes were In
active demand. Good cantaloupes were very
Locaf cucumbers are arriving more freely
and were lower at 5075 cents a box. A
car of Merced tomatoes was received.
POULTRY DEMAND EQUAL TO 60FPLY
Borers Object to Paying Recent High Prices
Poultry receipts yesterday were fair, but
were not too large for the market. Hens
sold generally at 15 cents, and Springs at
Veal was as scarce as ever, but buyers ob
jected to paying extreme prices, and 14 cents
was as high as most of them would go.
Dressed pork was firm.
The egg market Is drifting along at the

NEW YORK, July 15. Unsettlement,
which at times verged upon demoralisation,
overtook today's 8toc market. New Haven
was again the storm center, declining oti
points on steady offerings, individually small.
but in the aggregate large enough to make
that stock the most active of the day. New
Haven Cs droDDed 6A4 tramt and the 4tes of
the New York, Westchester A Boston, under
New Haven's guarantee, were again weak,
with a loss of two points.
It was not until the latter part of the day
that the general recessslon set In, beginning
with New York Central, which abruptly
declined on what appeared to De Dear sell
ing. That stock also recorded its lowest
price In years. The market at the close
The bond market naturally reflected th
weakness In stocks, with new low records of
a few of the speculative isssues. Total sales,
