Oats Seat to Manila and Europe.
Movement of Cereals From Har
bor Increases Rapidly Paget
Sound Reports Gain.
Portland exported 1.111,534 bushels
more of wheat to Europe for the month
ended yesterday than for November,
1914. There have been 1.186,482 bushels
more exported for the season to date
than for the corresponding period bist
year. Ships from here carried 62,033
barrels more of flour to Europe in No
vember than for the same month last
season, and since the opening: of the
1914-15 cereal season 108,930 barrels
more have been floated for Europe. Also
687.164 bushels of oats went offshore,
136.200 bushels going to Manila and the
rest to Europe.
Deductions from the " monthly sum
mary of the Merchants' Exchange give
these figures. The total movement of
wheat for the month was 1,748,785
bushels, as against 1,383,339 bushels a
year ago, only Europe and California
buying, while a year ago the Orient
drew stocks also. In tho way of flour,
shipments aggregated 159,340 barrels,
as compared with 114,177 barrels a

from 330.270 barrels last year to 04,630

barrels. All- cereal shipments, which
includes flour reduced to wheat meas
ure, from Northw-st pcrts during No
vember, were 4.979,622 bushels.
For the season to date Northwest
shipments have been 17,783.170 bushels.
By January 1 a material gain Is looked
for in exports to Europe over those of
the first half of last season. Numerous
ships are under engagement for December-January
loading, and a larger sail
ing fleet should arrive this month than
during November, though probably
fewer steamers will be dispatched.
The Cardigan is working cargo now
and the steamer Usher is nearing the
river, while the Wray Castle will be
along soon. The Portland Is loading
for the West Coast, her cargo being all
wheat, and the Nordfarer, Strathallan
and Kelbergen are en route.
Lumber exports totalled 6.683.161 feet
valued at $59,400, and with the domestic
snipments added there were 16,989,909

exports were 15,053,000 feet and do

Both forward "spuds" - of the Gov

from Oregon City for Portland with a
barge in tow, struck a fuel scow made
fast alongside the Champoeg, breaking
it loose. Two cavils were torn from the
deck of the lone by the strain.
E. B. Thomsen, assistant United
States engineer, made an investigation
of the accident yesterday and ordered
new "spuds" which will be delivered
today and the work of installing them
begun. Mr. Thomsen thinks that the
Champoeg will be at work again in a

Oregona. of the Yellow Stack Line,

damage that sent her to the bottom.

Crisis for Wbolgrowers Is
Near, Says Their Chief.
FREE TRADE RESPONSIBLE
R. X. Stanfield, Preparing for An
nual Meeting. Asserts Slieep-
men Are Forced to Sell Off
Stock as Mutton.
Oregon woolgrowers are approaching
a crisis in the" lire of their Industry,
said Robert N. Stanfleld. of Stanfield.
president of tne Oregon Woolgrowers'
Association, who was In Portland yes
terday preparing or the annual con
vention of the association at Pendleton
T1"rBiay and Friday of this week.
This crisis is developing, he said, on
account of the growing practice among
sheepmen of killing their lambs for
market, thus reducing the number of
sheep on the range and automatically
diminishing the annual production of
This practice. Mr. Stanfield explained
Is forced upon the sheepmen through
the removal of the protective tariff on
wool. Many sheep owners fear that
the Democratic free trade policies
eventually will reduce the price of wool
to an unprofitable basfe. so they are
preparing gradually to retire from the
" j 0iau(,uivnnK in ei r lamDs
Sacrifices May Be Necessary.
"Those sheepmen who continue In the
business through future free trade
periods may be compelled to sacrifice
a part of their flock every year to over
come the losses that the reduced price
of wool will force upon them," he said.
These and many other important sub
jects will receive earnest attention at
the Pendleton meeting.
It is probable that the woolmen will
not tackle the tariff problem year.
They expressed themselves forcibly on
this subject at their meeting In Port
land a year ago, when they severely
denounced the Democratic Administra
tion for removing the tariff on wool,
and criticised adversely the Oregon
members of the United States Senate
for supporting this particular feature
of the tariff bill.
Meetlos to Face Situation.
The Pendleton meeting will attempt
squarely to face the situation confront
ing the wool Industry as a result of the
"I believe that the wool business will
have to undergo an exhaustive read
justment," said Mr. Stapfleld.
"If possible ' the business will be
placed on a successful basis despite the
handicap of free trade. In other words,
we must try to overcome that handi
cap. "It is true that the price is up this
year, but everyone knows that this Is
due to a world-wide shortage in wool.
Under normal conditions we would be
getting 3 or 4 cents less for our wool
this year than we did a year ago."
Mr. Stanfield and other woolmen of
the state believe that sheepmen here
after will have to develop their stock
for the production of muttcn as well as
for wool. In the past year they have
taken steps in this direction.
Some Enter New Branch.
"Some sheepmen already are getting
into this branch of the business, but
they have killed more lambs than
mature sheep," said Mr. Stanfield. "It
will be the business of our meeting this
week to discuss methods by which we
can get into the mutton business with

Woolgrowers in other states have
started a campaign of education to
point out the nutritive value of mutton

fact that mutton is one of the few
meats that is not capable of trans

Homestead Laws to Be Discussed.
The homestead laws and the privi
leges of settlers on the open range also
will be discussed. A segregation of
the homestead land from the grazing
land probably will be advocated.
Mr. Stanfield expects a record attend
ance at Pendleton. Sheepmen from all
parts of the state will be there, he
predicts. Several prominent sheep own
ers in other states also will attend.
John O. Hoke, of Baker, is secretary
of the association, and C. G. Adams, of
Portland, is one of the vice-presidents.
Mr. Stanfleld is a member of the
lower branch of the Legislature, rep
resenting the Twenty-second District,
comprising Morrow and Umatilla coun
