WHEAT BUYING ON' LIGHTER SCALE
Trading Is Still Checked by Lack of Dock
Space Prices Lower.
Wheat trading in the local market Is still
hindered by the lack of warehouse room,
and until the docks are cleared ' of their
surplus buying on a large scale is not likely
to be resumed. Prices are affected, for this
reason, and the bids put out yesterday were
lower than last week's. The sagging tend
ency of the Chicago market was also ef
fective in holding prices down here.
For club wheat, prompt delivery, $1.12 H
was bid on the Merchants' Exchange, a halt
cent, less than on Saturday, and red wheat
prices were 2 to 2 cents under those of
last week. Forty-fold was unchanged, but
bluestem was a cent cheaper.
Prices for future delivery held steadier
and holders were not disposed to make con
cessions. One hundred tons of January oats were
sold at $28.50. December oats were wanted
at $27.50 and spot at $27. In the barley
market last week's prices were maintained.
. The mill-feed market is very firm and an
announcement of higher prices by the mills
In the near future is expected.
Local receipts,, in cars, were reported by
the Merchants Exchange as follows:

NEW YORK. Nov. 16. Inauguration of
the Federal reserve system and the formal
reopening of the Cotton Exchange and the
euro maraet were tne outstanding factors of
inxiuence in tne financial district todav.
rom ail accounts, tne new banking laws
were put into effect at all of the 12 regional
comers witn a minimum of confusion. The
importance or this undertaking mav be
Judged from the fact that the new system
embraces over 7500 institutions.
The new condition found direct reflection
not only in improved sentiment, but in an
increased 'demand for investment securities
at prices generally higher than those re
corded since July 30 last. In the unof
ficial market some active stocks were quoted
at figures close to the final prices of that

the prominent railways was said to be under
consideration. Exchange on London was
decidedly easier as a result of freer offer

OUTBREAK OF WAR.
Financial Arrangement for ' Taking
Care of Old Contracts Works Sat
isfactorily Market Is Steady.
NEW YORK. Nov. 16. The first dav of
business on the New York Cotton Exchange
since the outbreak of the war end the ab
rupt closing of all markets last July was
generally considered most satisfactory.
There was a bis attendance on the floor
of the exchange at the opening, and every
indication of extreme enthusiasm and satis
faction. Otherwise, however, there was no
excitement and it was very soon evident thai
the financial arrangement of the special
committee for taking care of the old con
tract interest had relieved the trade of all
apprehension regarding the effect of new,
December contracts sold below T.75c on
the call, thus passing automatically from
the control of tho corporation to the syndi
cate under the agreements recently con
summated, and it was reported that mem
bers of the syndicate were moderate sellers
on the decline from T.4Sc to 7.28c for that
position. Trading in the later months was
entirely confined to new style contracts, but
prices also eased off In sympathy with New
Orleans, with January selling down 2tt
points and later deliveries some 15 to la
points from the high level of the morning.
Some of the early buyers turned sellers on
the decline, owing to the absence of a more
active investment demand, and there was
some Southern selling, which may have pos
sibly been against spots, although, with the
exception of August, the interior markets, so
far as reported up to the close, were gener
ally steady. The close was- steady at the
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 16. The Cotton
Exchange here was opened this morning
after a suspension of slmnst Ihrtts months
and a half. The first trade between this
market and Liverpool was transacted in 17

NEW YORK. Nov. 16. The coffee mar
ket showed continued steadiness here to
day, although trading was generally quiet.
Two steamers arrived here from Brazil over
Sundav. one of which was considerably over
due, and the addition of about 95,000 bags
to local stocks seemed sufficient to help out
assortments. Brazil, however, was offering
verv little coffee in the cost and freight
market, while the weekly figures reflected
an Increasing business from Europe in the
primarv market, and notwithstanding a
small demand, the spot market here was
steady at $Vc for Rio 7s and 10 44c for

SEATTLE CONVENTIONS WILL BRING
MANY VISITORS TO PORTLAND.
Special Trains Carrying? Deleicatea to
Sound City ia 1015 Will It tin oa
to Oregron Metropolis.
Delegates to practically every con
vention held in -the Northwest in the
coming year will visit Portland, al
though this city is to be the place of
scarcely a single convention during
that time. Seattle will be the place
where the majority of the big conven
tions will be held, but Portland will
profit from the visits of the delegates
almost as much as the Sound City.
Realizing that both cities might be
benefited by conventions held in Seat
tle, the Portland commercial organiza
tions assisted Seattle in campaigns to
get conventions for 1915 whenever the
Final advices from the railroad au
thorities, received yesterday, made it
definite that the delegations will al
most all visit Portland. Every special
train that goes to Seattle to conven
tions from the East will continue to
Portland and the tickets through to
Seattle will bring the visitors to Port
land at no greater cost. The trains will
be parked in Seattle and the delegates
will remain upon them while the con
ventions are In session. The specials
will terminate their runs in Portland.
This arrangement makes it certain
that, besides the visitors who come
especially to the Rose Festival and the
many tourists who pass through Port
land on their way to San Francisco,
more than 100,000 delegates to various
big conventions in Seattle will pass
everal days in this city after leaving
their excursion- trains here. ..
Among the large conventions to
be held in Seattle and which ' will
involve special train parties are:
The Shriners in August with 75,000
delegates; Knights of Columbus in
August, 10,000; United Yardmasters'
Association, 1000; Grand Council 01
United Commercial Travelers, 1000;
American Chemical Society, 1000; Amer
lean Bankers' Association, 3000; Amer
ican Association of Accountants, 350.
WOODYARD DEAL IS MADE
City to Open. Camp for Unemployed
at Beaverton ?ext Weefc.
Portland's first municipal woodyard
for the benefit of the unemployed will
be opened at Beaverton early next
week. Negotiations for the purchase
of timber were closed yesterday by
the City Commission with M. J. Kelley,
and an emergency ordinance was
passed appropriating $5000 to finance
the first camp.
The men will be paid 75 cents a cord
for reducing the timber to cordwood
and will be given board and lodging
for 75 cents a day. The City will pay
$1 a cord for the timber, which will
make the total cost of producing the
cordwood not more than $2.50 a cord
Employment at the camp will be
given only through the Municipal Em
jjloyment Bureau. The bureau will in
vestigate the cases of the applicants
for the work and give the Jobs only
in needy cases. It is proposed to
alternate the crews to distribute the
work as much as possible.
The Council also closed negotiations
yesterday for a woodyard on the
ground owned by the Oregon Iron &
Steel Company near Oswego. This yard
cannot be made ready for operation for
some time. Commissioner Brewster
has an 'agent seeking other tracts
upon which the camps may be estab
lished. Efforts are being made also
to get land owners to let contracts for
the clearing of land by the unemployed.

SWING IS DOWNWARD
Wheat Market Affected by
Visible Supply Report.
GREATER THAN EXPECTED
Increase Over Last Tear's Show in
Is Over Five Million Bushels.
Irices Lose Half to Nearly
v ' Full Cent.
CHICAGO, Nov. 16. Surprise over an lm-'
mense gain shown in the United States vis-!
lole supply pave a downward swing today
to the price of wheat. Closing quotations
were steady, but He to 0e under
Saturday night. Corn suffered a net loss
of to me and oats of He. In pro
visions the outcome varied from 0 cents
decline to an advance of 2H cents.
Wheat traders had expected an increase
of the visible supply, but were unprepared
for an enlargement of fS, 535. OOO bushels, tar
surpassing the big record at the correspond
ing time a year ago, 3, 860, 000 bushels. In
Chicago alone the stock on hand was aug
mented by more than 1.OOO.000 bushels dur
ing last week. The aggregate of the domes
tic supply now In store is the largest In
years. Furthermore, receipts continued
heavy today at the primary terminals,
reaching 8.008,000 bushels as against 1,-
625.000 bushels last year.
Important buying of December and May
wheat on direct foreign orders upheld the
market until the final hour of the session.
Colder weather that favored the handling
of the new crop had a bearish influence on
tne corn market. Receipts were liberal and
the export demand, which of late has been
a feature, was lacking. V,
Oats tended to sag with corn. Besides,
there seemed to be something of a letup tn
the call for cash oats..
Despite an advance In hog prices here.
the provision market averaged lower. Pack
ers appeared to be chiefly responsible for
holding the market steady.
