Manager Ties Up Game
STANFORD BREAK CAUSE
Ralph Stroud May Stop Here Today
to Close Ieal for Fall Football
Game With Athletic Club.
Sport Gossip Itelated.
BT ROSCOE FAWCETT.
Multnomah's . crack football team
likely will make a trip to San Fran
cisco In the Fall to battle the Uni
versity of California, along with the
University of Washington and perhaps
one other Northwest conference col
lege. This complete reorganization or
gridiron affairs along the West Coast
comes as a consequence of the break
between Stanford and California and
the discarding of Kugby football by
the latter institution.
Further, the California wrangle of
ficially may widen the tield. because a
move is now under way for the de
molition of th present Northwest con
ference in favor of a Pacific Coast con
ference. Victor Zednick., president of
the Northwest body, is out with a cir
cular letter advocating Just such a re
organization. Zednick believes that Oregon, the
Oregon Aggies, Washington, the Wash
ington Aggies and Idaho are strong
enough for a Coast conference. He
eays nothing about "Whitman, which
ought to make a hit with Nig Borleske
and other Walla Walla folk.
While this official reorganization of
football affairs la still many miles
from consummation, intersectional
games are not. Ralph Stroud, gradu
ate manager at California, signed up
an annual game with Washington Tues
day at Seattle and he is expected in
Portland today or tomorrow to confer
with Dow Walker, of the Multnomah
Club. Mr. Walker telegraphed him yes
terday. En route South Manager Stroud is
billed to stop off at Eugene and It is
barely possible Oregon may add an
other game o its schedule to help re
vive American football in the South.
The Oregon Aggies have an extremely
heavy schedule as it is. but Dr. Stewart
has volunteered to give California the
one open date, October 23. if Stroud
finds himself up against it.
Wo do nit know whether Los Angeles
kept a string on big Jim McHenry or
not, but if Pop Dillon sent the big
pitcher away without some sort of op
tion he may be sorry befora long.
McHenry has won 10 games out of 12
in the Northwestern League. Salycson,
the big fellow let go by McCredie last
year, has won six out of J.0 games, but
he seems to be the wildest person out
side the bars. Sally has walked 65
men in the 10 games or nearly six per
While the absence of the great Brit

Kay, George Duncan and Mayo, robs
the 21st open championship of the
United States Golf Association this
week at Baltusrol of some of its inter
national interest, the field seems to be
quite heavy enough "for most of us.
Most of the leading professionals of
this country and Canada and some of
the best amateurs are there striving
The last tournament played over the
Baltusrol course was in 1903. when the
late Willie Anderson scored the first
of his three successive titles. Since
then the course has been altered con
siderably. The out round is now 3129
yards and tho incoming round 3083,
making a total of 6212.
-For 16 years the open title wag won
by professionals of British extraction,
Alex Smith being the last to win in
1910. Jack McDermott tied him that
year and in 1911 secured the first win
by a home-born player. McDermott
repeated in 1912. and in 1913 Francis
Ouimet, the Boston amateur, scored
his memorable victory over the great
Vardcn and Ray at Brookline. This
was the first win by an amateur. Last
year at Midlothian Walter Hagen, the
young Rochester professional, led the
field with the remarkable score of 290.
Chick Evans, Jr., almost won out in
the home hole by making the 300 yards
in two strokes.

PRUNE FUTURES OFF
Prospect of Larger Crop
NO LATE SALES OREGONS
Estimate of Northwestern Output
Raised Five Million Pounds.
California Packers Sell Freely
at Decline; Spots Firm.
The prune crops of Oregon, Washington
and California will be larger than the first
estimates, according to word received by
packers here. They had been figuring on -a
dried prune output In the Northwest of 25.
000.000 pounds, but the latest reports from
the growing sections have caused them to
raise their estimates' to 30,000.000 pounds.
California packers are also advising their
correspondents that the crop of the Southern
state will be larger than was heretofore fig.
ured up. Some of them have placed their
estimates at 200,000,000 pounds and over.
This Increase In the prospective yield, to
gether with the absence of export demand,
has caused a weaker market. Packers in the
Northwest have done a very limited amount
of business in futures, owing to the heavy
trading In the California crop, which has
been and is being sold at exceedingly low
prices. The local packers now find It Im
possible to get orders at the prices at which
a few sales were made earlier In the season.
In fact, practically nothing can be done at
the present time. A trade report from New
York says of the offers:
"Reports from the Northwest bring the
advice that Oregon Italian prunes for future
delivery are being offered at a 3c basis
for equal qualities of 30s and 40s In some
quarters. This figure Is slightly below the
last quotation made for the present season's
crop. Previous .prices have listed future
Oregon prunes on a 5e basis and a 3c
basis, according to packer. Advices received
in some quarters from the Coast show that
there is still about 200,000 pounds of old
stock left on the market In the Northwest,
but others declare that spot holdings are
"There Is a tendency all along the line,
according to prominent brokers, toward a
greater activity In spot California prunes,
and prices are showing a decided inclina
tion to advance, particularly on the Inter
mediate and smaller counts. Everything be
low 50s la in very light supply. Nineties
and smaller are saldT to be almost unobtain
able. "There have been several inquiries from
abroad as to the condition of the New York
market, though European sales are not re
ported from many sources as yet. The ex
port business done has covered but a few
thousand boxes, but there is continued in
quiry, and a large business might be done
if supplies for immediate shipment were
available. With the strengthening of the
markets, London brokers will probably send
In orders to fill demands which they will be
forced to meet for Continental orders.
"The general Impression of the spot mar
ket was a noticeable strengthening in the
prices and demand. It was almost a unan
imous verdict that the California spot mar
ket was going up and that better prices
would be obtained within the nest few
"EW WOOLS ARK HELLING IN EAST
Territory Lines Are Beina- Opened on Lim
Eastern trade papers estimate the wool
turnover in the past week at about 3.500.000
pounds, activity in Australian and Cape
supplies accounting to a great extent for
the fairly liberal movement. Aside from the
business in foreign wools, the interest has
attached to the opening of lines of new
territory grades to a limited extent and
a few moderatesized sales of such domestic
Included in the transfers at Boston are
50,000 pounds of half-blood and 100.000
pounds of three-eighths blood, also a third
lot similar to the second. The business In
territories so far has been comprised prin
cipally of Utah clips. The foregoing busi
ness is estimated to show a scoured basis
of 03 cents for the half-blood and 64 to 65
cents for the threeelghths-blood wooL A
good-sized lot of Utah wool in the original
bags has changed hands at 24 cents in the
grease, the scoured basis being estimated
at 65 cents. Dealers holding territory wools
have begun to open and show them when
ever manufacturers have shown enough in
terest to warrant such action.
Dealers have made further efforts to dis
pose of the remaining unsold stocks from
the 1914 clip of fleec wool.
HIGHER PRICES PAID FOR WHEAT
August Delivery Is Quoted for First Time
en Loral Board.
Wheat prices were bid up again at the
Merchants Exchange yesterday. Five thou

the offered price of Tuesday. Other bids
were at advances of 14 to 4 cents, except
In the case of July fife, which was 3 cents
August delivery of wheat appeared on the
boerd for the first time. Bids for the white
varieties were at 83 to 85 cents and 80
1 certs was offered for red. The only August
sellers were of red Rufialan at 87 cents.
The Chicago wheat pit bad an estimate
that North - America would produce 1.250,
000,000. bushels of wheat with an export sur
plus of 4(0.000,000 eushels, but this did
not prevent the Chicago market from ad

"Aphis attack light. Washing Is general.

MALHEUR WOOL GROWERS HOLDING
Prices Now Being Offered by Buyers Not
VALE. Or.. June '16. (Special.) Wool
sales at Juntura and Ontario the past two
weeks were small and prices unsatisfactory.
Most growers are preparing to hold their
fleeces, as money is easily obtainable at the
various banks for the purpose.
Fine grades are hot in great demand. The
European governments are taking a vast
amount of material of courser grades, but
growers here contend that the Australian
shortage In all grades must be made up
from this country and Argentina and that
the clip in both places shows nothing to
warrant any other than a high price.
Considerable Interest Is shown In the Port
land warehouse propositions and next sea
son may see a vast amount of wool turned
toward Portland tor shipment to the Eastern
markets. It Is claimed that a saving of tS
per ton can be effected by shipping to Port
land and e&st via the Panama Canal.

READING DIVIDEND FACTOR
Reports From Steel Trade Are of
Further Gains With Increased
Domestic Demand for New
Equipment; Bonds Firm.
NEW YORK, June 16. After backing and'
filling for the greater part of the session,
today's stock market turned strong in the
final hour. Its rise coinciding with the decla
ration of the regular Reading dividend and
vague rumors of Impending developments
favorable to the United States Steel Corpo
ration. Prior to that period, the market
had shown no very definite trend, standard
stocks moving within comparatively narrow
limits, while manipulated specialties repeated
their remnt BAnutfnnal evratlont.
In the railway list, grangers arfd some of

fashion, for which moderate foreign selling
might have been responsible, Canadian Pa
cific held rather better than any other Im
portant Issue In the International list. Tota:
sales of stocks amounted to 313,000 shares.
Although foreign exchange was again de
moralized, with new low rates between this
center and London and Paris, this feature
of the financial situation was less of a fac
tor than on the previous day. Early rates
on London suggested greater steadiness, an
other consignment of $2,500,000 from Canada
contributing to that end, but later, when
pressure of commercial bills again became
strong, demand sterling fell to 4.76 Vi, and
cables to 4.TT. In each Instance a decline of

Paris exchange broke to 5.46 V4 for checks,
a weakening of of a cent from yesterday's
low record quotation. Reichsmarks and
lires continued to move favorably to this
market, but offerings' of bills on Berlin and
Rome were very light.
. Further rains In the steel trade were re
ported by the recognised authorities In that
industry, recent domestic orders for new
eauioment adding to the Increased activity
at leading mills. Sales of refined copper at
a substantial fraction under tne nign price
