BAl'M GUXXIXG FOR GAMBLERS
League President Keports Revival In
Interest in Games in South.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 2 (Special.)
President A. T. Baum returned from
Los Angeles yesterday with plans to
wage war on the gamblers who are be
coming obnoxious by wagering on the
Coast League games. The baseball lot
tery especially will come in for an in
vestigation. "The Pacific Coast League has al
ways been active in suppressing
gambling on tho games in all forms."
eays Baum. "'The magnates realize the
dangers of letting the National pastime
get contaminated with the gamblers,
and we will be on the lookout at all
times to take a. hand against it."
Baum's principal visit to the south
was to look: into the numerous rows the
Salt Lake players were having with
the umpires. The league's head says
that he found that conditions had been
greatly exaggerated, and that the situ
ation was not as bad as it was painted
in some quarters.
- The games drew well at Los Angeles
last week, Baum further Gays, and with
good weather in sight he expects to
see monster crowds turn out for the
remainder of the season.
CHRISTIAN STILL OAK LEADER
Jack Cook, Secretary of Club, Says
Story of Release Is Untrue.
So far as J. P. Cook, vice-president?
or tne uaKland club, is concerned, Tyler
Christian is still the manager of the
Oaks and will remain so until the close
of the year.
"Genial Jack" denied with emphasis
reports from the south that Christian
had been deposed, when he brought
his ball club into Portland yesterday.
"Christian is troubled with hay fever
for a few weeks every Spring' said
he. at the Multnomah Hotel. "This
canard about his release emlnated from
Los Angeles over a fortnight ago, due
to Christian's absence from the club.
It is the rankest untruth.
"We are satisfied with Manager
Christian and with our ball club, and,
so far as I know, we have had no deal
ings at all with Charles O'Leary, Del
Howard, Ivan Howard and Ivan Olson,
who have been chosen by San Fran
cisco and Los Angeles newspapers" to

Popular Little Outriclder Gets Ax
When in Batting; Slump.
BAN FRANCISCO. June 2 (Special.)
Howard Mundorff has received his
five days' notice of release from the
Oakland management. The popular
little outfielder, who has been in the
league ever since 19o9, when he was a
member of the pennant-winning San
Francisco aggregation, will likely pass
out of the Coast League, inasmuch as
all the clubs seem overstocked with
Mundorff got off to a flying start
with the Oaks after being sold by the
Seals during the Spring training sea
son, but of late lias been in a slump
and was benched for Rube Gardner.
The Oaks also have Koerner for out
field duty, ao that the trans-bay club
was well stocked with outer gardeners,
which accounts in a measure for the
passing of "Mundie."
MAROONS TO PLAY SUNDAY
AVcst Side Monarchs to Meet Cily
Games will be played Sunday by tho
City League club at Piedmont and Sell
wood. The Maroons and West Sida
Monarchs will clash in the new park
in Piedmont, across Portland boulevard
from the Peninsula Park. The Mon
archy are crowding the Maroons ami
trimmed them by a large margin at
their last meeting. A good deal of
interest is centered in the game, due
to the fact that none of the. other
learns have been able to triumph over
the league-leading Piedmont crew.
Manager Grayson, of the Maroons,
will use Emery Webb on the mound,
while Chet Murphy, who defeated the
Kugene team in the Sunday game,
probably will be Rupert's choice.
At the Sellwood Park the Kast Side
Redmen will meet the Sellwoods.

or better, and this price is the top for today.
Hosa which are allowed to eat clover or
alfalfa pasture while fattening will not ba

good prices. This is particularly true when
the pastures are as wet and washy as at
present. There Is good demand for strictly
choice; grain-fed hogs, bait less than, choice
handy-weight stuff sells slowly.
The market will take all lines of sheep
readily if they are in good market con

is slow to move.

PRUNE CROP LARGE
Coast Will Have Big Supply
With Poor Export Trade.
LOW PRICES ARE INDICATED
Northwest Packers Have Done 3Iod
erate Business and Have Cov
ered Sales With Contracts
on Basis of 5 Cents.
Prune prices are going to rule lower this
year from all Indications. Tha Pacific
Coast has a large crop and but little chance
to export the surplus, as the war has
paralyzed the foreign demand. A little
business is being done by packers on the
basis of a materially lower market than
prevailed at the opening last season.
. Various estimates have been made of the
size of the California prune crop, but a
fair average of the yield is 175.000.000
pounds. In Oregon, Washington and Idaho
the dried prune output will run at let
25,000,000 pounds, according to the best
posted, prune "men. It Is, therefore, al
most assured there will be a tonnage this
year of 200,000,000 pounds on the Pacific
Coast, against 10O.000.0O0 pounds last year,
For the past four or five years, accord-
Ing to official statistics, tho exports of
Northwestern and California prunes have
been about 45 per xent of the total pro
duction. This year, a conservative esti
mate is 10 per cent, and somo packers
figure even a smaller quantity, with these
conditions, it cannot be expected that prices
will be as high as during the past two
or three years.
California packers have sold exceedingly
heavy on futures and a little has been done
in the Northwest in this line. Packers
here have made contracts with growers to
cover the small amount of business trans
acted, paying 0 cents for 30-3.1s and a
quarter cent drop for each count of five
in orchards that will produce large sizes.
but the general run of prices paid growers
has been around 5 cents for 30-33S. Very
little Eastern business can be done at pres
ent at these figures.
LOWER PRICES OFFERED FOR WHEAT,
Sellers Axe "Not Dlnsnsed to Iet Go at
There Is very little demand for wheat
and bid prices were sharply reduced at the
Merchants' Exchange yesterday. Not much
was offered for sale, . however, and asked
prices were generally firm. As compared
with the preceding day, bids for bluestem
and forty-fold were reduced 2 to 3 54 cents
and club offers were l'i to 2 cents lower.
Red wheat prices were not changed much.
J wo hundred tons of spot oats were sold
at S20.2o. Better prices were bid for barley,
but there were no transactions.
The official French report places the con
dition of Winter wheat at 87 as compared
with 71 on alay 1 last year.
According to Bradstreets, the world's
visible supply of wheat decreased 7,800.000
Bushels and tha corn visible decreased 2,460,
Wheat on passage to the United King
dom and the Continent is estimated at 51.
064.000 bushels, a decrease of 3,806,000
bushels; corn on passage 0,665,000 bushels,
an increase of 2.132,000 bushels.
Foreign crop conditions are summarized by
Broomha.ll as follows:
United Kingdom. Crops are doing woll
after good ruins. The acreage will not be
up to expectations. Stocks of wheat are
Prance. The 'crop outlook is very satis
factory, but acreage shows a material de
crease. The Government has requisitioned
all wheat, both old supplies and growing
crop. Reserves are-very moderate and con
sumption liberal, as military usage offsets
Russia. Crop outlook on the whole Is fav
orable, with southern districts wanting more
rain. Supplies have increased moderately.
Rumania and Bulgaria.. Crop outlook fav
orable on an increased acreage.
Greece. The crop promises a yield much
in excess of last year. Special attention has
been given cultivation. Dry, warm weather
India. Wheat Is freely offered, but firmly
held. Seeding for the new crop is being
delayed owing to heut and dryness.
Australia. Further beneficial rains have
fallen, and the agricultural outlook Is flat
tering. Italy. Harvesting prospects are main
tained. Weather seasonable. Supplies are
North Africa. A good wheat harvest is
expected. New barley is commencing to ar
rive at the ports. .
Hungary. An official report says: "The
crop outlook is good, with a fair yield ex
pected. Parts want rain."
Germany. Advices from Berlin report
greatly Increased acreage for both Winter
and Spring crops. The Government has
commandeered all growing crops.

MARKET IS IN STRONGER POSITION.
Wool s More Active In East and Prices
Reviewing the condition of the Boston
wool market, the Commercial Bulletin says:
"Confidence seems to have begotten more
confidence In wool and the market is un
doubtedly In a stronger position than it was
a week ago. Whether or not the clothiers
have given the manufacturers reason to be
more optimistic by placing orders for cloth
more freely Is not clear, but there is no
doubt of the fact that wool the world over
Is In a very firm position, and machinery
outside of the United States, which la suit
able for the manufacture of goods, is oc
cupied to its fullest capacity.
"Manufacturers have given renewed and
Increased evidence of their .interest in raw
material this week and sales have been
somewhat larger than for several previous
weeks, according to all accounts. Prices are
generally firm as compared with a week
ago and come grades are doubtless a bit
stronger. Certainly the tendency is towards
a higher level.
Foreign wool has again constituted the
greater part of the business done, but do
mestic wool Is beginning to reach the trade
more and more and sales are likely to in
crease with the further arrival of new
LOCAL CHERRY RECEIPTS ARE LARGE
Apples Scarce and Quoted Higher New Po
Receipts of local cherries were large yes
terday, but there was not much of a mar
ket for them. Prices ranged from 4 to
8 cents, according to quality. The straw
berry market was weak. Good shipping
stock sold at $1.15 to $1.23. K small ship
ment of cantaloupes arrived and sold at $.
Apples are very scarce and higher prices
are obtained. Hales of Ben Davis have been
made as high as l.ao. while $2.50 Is quoted
on the best table apples.
The banana train is due today. The mar
ket Is in good condition.
California wires reported a firmer mar
ket on new potatoes, but local prices were
unchanged. local onions were firm at
Green vegetables were generally In good
supply except peas, which have been held
back by the rain, and were firmer.
Country Produce Market Weak.
Tho country produce market continued
quiet." Veal again sold at a cents, and 10
cents was tho top on pork. Poultry was
barely steady, hens selling at 12 cents.

STOCK VALUES RISE
Market Affected by German
REGARDED AS FAVORABLE
Feature of Steel Trade Is Heavy
Demand for Round Bars for
Army T"se Abroad Sterling-
Exchange Is Steadier.
NEW YORK. June 2. Wall Street's at
tention was quite evenly divided today be
tween this country's relations with Ger
many and Mexico. The audience granted
by President Wilson to the German Am
bassador and the emphatic declaration - to
Mexico's warring leaders were almost the
only development of an otherwise unevent
The financial community was clearly In
clined to regard the visit of the German
Ambassador to the White House as a factor
of fsvorablo import. The entire list, in
cluding the international group, advanced
smartly during the morning on a volume
of business far is excess of the proceeding
day. War shares and other specialties, as
well as coppers, participated in- the rise,
which lost much or its enthusiasm later.
Trading slackened to a marked degree in
the afternoon and some gains wore re
duced to fractions at the dull close.
Total sales of stocks amounted to 300,000
Cables stating that the Bank of England
had released $1,375,000 of its gold and
sold $10,000,000 of its foreign gold .could
doubtless account for the steadiness of lo
cal exchange on London, but the record for
francs again was lowered, remittances on
Paris being quoted at $5.45, against the
previous price of $5.43. Italian exchange
was a trifle firmer, but the volume of bills
on Rome was a further ' reflection of of
ferings by our bankers and manufacturers
against purchases of war supplies.
Announcement that the Missouri Pacific
Railway note extension plan had been ef
fected Imparted somewhat greater steadi
ness to the stock and the notes also rose
appreciably. Later, these issues f'-'ll back
again, as a result of an attachment against
the company ' by a non-assenting note
The feature of the steel trade Is the
heavy demand for round bars, this material
being used mainly for shrapnel and gun
barrels. Steel exports are subject to fur
ther delay because of the increasing dif
ficulties of ocean transport.
The bond market was firm, an excep
tion being St. Louis & Iron Mountain 4s,
which fell four points. Totals sales of
bonds par value, aggregated $1,608,000.

unless at a sharp set-back in values, counted
also against the bulls.
Prospect of unwelcome rain over much of
the domestic belt caused a brief rally in
the wheat market a short time after the
opening. The generally auspicious outlook
for the crop, however, with lower quota
tions from Liverpool, tended later to operate
as more than a full offset.
Cheap Argentine offerings at New York

might delay replanting and interfere with
shipments from first hands. The pronounced

MINNEAPOLIS. June 2. The Minneapolis
mills decreased the price of flour locally
today to $7.10 for fancy patents. The

was due to the drop in wheat and also
to the easing off of the cash premium. This
was attributed, the millers say. to with
