LOSSES NOT GREAT
Sheep Go Through Winter as
Well as in Other Ye,ars.
CONTRACTING HAS BEGUN
Quarter of JJillioii Pounds Bought
on Slicep's Back in eastern
Oregon at Strong Prices.
Bnying In Other States. '
Sensational statements have been circu
lated lA certain quarters of enormous shee&
losses In tho Northivtst during the recent
cold spell. These reports are branded as
false by E. W. Rumble, manager of the Co
lumbia Basin Wool Warehouse Company.
Ilis agents have made a personal Investiga
tion of conditions In tr sheep-growing dis
trict, and they found the Winter losses
were very little. If any. greater ma m
other years. Considering the severity of the
recent woather conditions are exceedingly
uood throughout Eastern Oregon, Eastern
Washington and Idaho.
Wool contracting has started in a lim
ited way in Eastern Oregon. About 23.000
fleeces have so far been bought on the
sheeps' bacic in the Pendleton. Condon and
Baker section. The buyers did not make
public the prices paid, but they are known
to be strong.
Jn Idaho, rather more contracting has
been done, but the operators were home
I buyers. The heaviest trading In future wools
has been In Utah and Nevada, with some
operations at high prices in Montana.
Dealers in the East consider tl prices
paid lor new Western wool as altogether too
high. Inasmuch as soma of these purchases
represent a 'clean cost landed In the East
of about SO oents. The great bulk of the
wool taken, however, lias been more nearly
on a 70-cnt basis and some was boughrat
even less. Good staple clips, however, are
generally bringing from 70 to- 75 cents.
Montana growers are said to be asking 32
cents for medium wools. The total contract
movement to dute is figured at about 10.
voo.ooo pounds.
There have been sales in Boston in the
past week of fine staple Oregon wool of
last star's clip-at 7o jj77 cents, clean basis,
and of No. X Oregon at 70 cents. Fine sta
ple Montana sold as high as. 31 cents In the
grease, and half-blood Montana staple has
been sold at 33 cents. In one Instance at
3IVi cents, for an exceedingly choice lot,
which xueana all of SO cents, clean basia
Quarter and three-eighths Soa Springs
wools have been sold at 3S coats for light
shrinking wool.
Commenting on market conditions at
Boston, the Commercial Bulletin says:
"The steady movement of wool to con
suming channels continues and has been
augmented more or less this past week by
trading between dealers, although this latter
feature of the business has not been es-
1 pcclally pronounced as was the case two
or three weeks ago. All told, rather more
than a normal week's business has been
j done, demand being strong for practically
everything, except possibly short scoured
wools, which have been, by comparison,
rather draggy.-
.' "Prices are generally firm to higher.
East India wools are deeidedly dearer, as
a result of the embargo 'announced on last
Saturday, and medium domestic wools are
silghtiy higher, while fine wools of all kind
are a bit stronger.
"All tlw events of the week have tended
to strengthen the market, if anything, and
wlilie there must be an end sometime, to
. the advance -now -being experienced it ap
parently is cot yet in sight."
. WHEAT BIYLXO IS AT A STANDSTILL
Bids Are Reduced Sharply In KespoDcte to-l
Slump In East.
Wheat buying In the Northwest la practi
cally at a standstill. The car situation Is
better In some quarters and worse In others.
The demand yesterday was poor t and no
bids, so far as reported, were sent fcnto the
; country. At the Merchants Exchange, wheat
bids were reduced 1 cent to 4 cents. Busi
:' hese In the coarse grains was' stagnant.
BraJstreet's estimates the world's visible

Brosmhali says of the wheat situation in
his international review!
! ""Market has fluctuated Irregularly during
lbs past weeki with the undertone firms
i ''World's- shipments were large, but the
i .Treat bulk ef these came from North Ames
ira, which continues to" create an abnormal
situation; It is evident tliat purchases - of
North American wheat must continue as
, long as the' Southern Hemisphere is shut
:' off from shipping anywhere near its normal
quotai by the -unusual (relent situation, Ar
ftentlua offers are light and Australia effer.
iiisr mederately.
"Argentine prices are more In line and
larger shipments are likely (rem there! espe
cially ts France and Italy, as large contracts
have been consummated and special freight
arrangements made by officials,
"British merchants find trading difficult
as prices are firm and tonnage scarce and
port stotks keep low, with consumption
liberal. ,
"Hopes of European Importers, are cen
tered on the big Canadian visible aid reports
of good farm reserves In Canada and also
United Btates, whl'je both Argentina and

SO DEMAND YET FOB MOHAIR
Eastern and Foreign Markets Are -Finn,
(sales of Imported Hair.
There appears to be no interest yet In
mohair In toe West, although shearing time
!a not far distant. Some of last year's clip
. is still nneoia nere and there Is said to be
nogdexnand for It. Dealers are puszled over
tna situation, lor taey believe mohair should
reflect some of the strength shown by the
wool market. ,
.-There has been a fair demand for Cane
mob air In the Boston' market during tlw
past week, cape lint Have sold to very
fair extent at 33 cents and Id two or three
Instances 36 cents . has been obtained for
choice lota. Domestio hair has been less
active, but prices are quoted very firmly
for all grades, says the Commercial Bulletin.
Advices from ' Yorkshire report a rery
firm market there and consumption continu
ing oa a healthy level. Cape firsts are
quoted at ,15 to 15 Hd.
Reports from the Cape are very strong
and to the effect that demand has been
brisker there laiteny. Basuto hair baa been
old there at a full shilling and Winter
k)da have brought Is 3d.
Alpaca is up considerably at Liverpool,
Arequipa fleeces having been sold for a
' very superior lot as high as 21 Hd. Infer
iors are also up very considerably and the
demand continue steady.

CHEAP SALMOX CLOSELY CONTROLLED
Market Nearly Cleaned I'p for Shipment to
Europe.
The cheaper grades of salmon are prac
tically cleaned up on the Coast, according to
trade reports. The steady demand whioh
has been in progress for the past few weeks
for the low and medium grade salmon from
foreign sources has resulted In depleting
stocks to such an extent that only 6mall
quantities are said to remain. In the hands
of the packers. Large foreign orders that
are now pending will ha-ve to be filled, the
reports say, by purchasing small lots from
several packers, as no one operator Is be
lieved to have sufficient supplies on hand
to burnish a large block.
There are at tbe present time orders pend
ing, which in several cases were said to be
practically closed, of more than 250.000 cases
of medium-grade fish for foreign shipment.
' No Reseedlnar at Lenioton.
LEW1STO.V, Idaho. Feb. 23. (Special.)
Although the past Winter was the most un
usual in the history of the valley, growing
grain has not suffered In the least. Farm
ers are Joyous, to put it mildly, that the 36
Inches of snow disappeared gradually, prac
tically all of the moisture finding Its way
into the soil. On account of the sandy soil
of this district it is almost Impossible for
too much moisture to fall. That both the
Falt-cown and the Spring-grown grain will
mako a record growth is 'considered certain.
Another unusual but favorable clrcum
atance is that the fields were protected by
snow at all times when the weather was
cold enough to causo damage. .-No reseed
Ing will be done on this score.

TRADERS HOLD BACK
Wall-Street Stock Dealings
Are Smallest in Months.
TONE OF MARKET HEAVY
Bufl or Business Is Done In Minor
Specialties Steel Moves Within
Narrow -Limits- Continuance
of Activity in Metal Trades.
NEW YORK. Feb. 23. To find i parallel
for today's sluggish and meaningless mar
ket, it is necessary to go back almost six
months to September of last year. Dealings
barely aggregated 300,000 shares, and these
consisted largeiy ol proxessionai opeianona
In speculative issues -whose Intrinsic worth
remains to be established.
Th hollow character of the trading may
be gauged from the fact that American can.
United States Industrial Alcohol, Mercantile
Marina preferred and Baldwin and Amer
ican locomotive were among the most active
stocks.
United States Steel rose and fell within
fractions of Monday's final figure and Mer
cantile Marine, which was firm at the out
set, broke sharply In the final hour on
rumors of further differences among the
reorganizes. High-priced specialties moved
irregularly with a break of 10 points in
Bethlehem Steel at 470.
A novel departure in dividend disburse
ments was furnished by the Dupont Powder
Company, which declared an "extra" divi
dend of 22 54 per cent' on the common stock,
the greater part payable In Anglo-French
bonds, to which 'the company was a large
subscriber.
Developments at home and abroad over
the holiday were not calculated to restore
confidence and sentiment was more strongly
inclined to lower prices. In the main, how
ever, quotations were not materially im
paired. According to market gossip, commission-house
business was at a complete
standstill, indicating an utter abstention of
public interest.
Trustworthy advices told of a continu
ance of activity in the steel trade, a con
dition borne out by the placing of further
orders for homo und foreign consumption,
as well as additional advances in -prices in
various manufactured products. Copper metal
was lower in London, but the decline was
without effect here, where recent high
record quotations were maintained.
For the first time In months, railroad
refurns were rather conflicting, Baltimore &
Ohio reporting a net gain of $510,000 for
January, whereas Southern Pacific showed
a decrease of $335,000, due mainly to ad
verse weather conditions.
Trading in Anglo-French 5s at concessions
featured the heavier bond market- Total
sales, par value, aggregated $3,050,000.
United States bonds were unchanged on
call,

Acute Depression Duo to Big lie
ccipts and Decline at Winnipeg,
European Visiblo Increase, En
larged Surplus in Australia.
CHICAGO. Feb. 23. Wheat suffered
breaks today that in some cases amounted
to as mucb as 44c, the result chiefly
of weakness at Winnipeg and Liverpool,
Closing quotations were unsettled. o to
11c net lower, with May at $1.23
and July at $1.19. Corn gained lc to
1C oats finished c to c off, and
provisions 10c to 17 c up.
Depression In wheat proved most acute at
the outset, when tho trade was dominated
by bearish announcements regarding big re
ceipts and liberal reserves is Winnipeg and
by word from Liverpool that the European
visible supply had notably increased and
that the Australian surplus was more than
double any ever before obtained. Gossip of
liberal export business helped the. wheat
bolls to bring about a further rally daring
the last half of the session.- The fact,
though, that most of the sales to Europe
were of Manitoba wheat and for deferred
shipment acted as somewhat of an offset.
Corn developed remarkable strength In the
face of the break In wheat.
Oats sympathised witb wheat Instead of
corn.
Provisions responded to higher quotations
on corn and hogs.

Work will be resumed within 10 days
on the surrey of the Itonch Timber
Company's big- tract east of -Sutherlin
by the Lumbermen's Engineering Com
party, of Portland.
A complete contour of 55,000 ernes
was made by the Portland ensmners
two years atro. the work was resumed
last November, but an early Fall of
snow drove the surveyors out of the
mountains. Upon completion of nearly
10,000 acres remaining tho tract of tha
Roach company will be the larsest
contoured area of timber on record.
The Sutherlin company plans to di
vide Its tract into eifrht districts, each
ef which will be tapped by a loggrins;
road and several of these districts will
be turned over to independent sawmill
companies.
The P.oach company will commence
construction on two railroads from
Sutherlin to the timber at an early
date and one mill of a capacity of "oO,-
000 feet will be ouilt this year.
Owinir to the present upward tend
encjr of lumber prices the local timber
men' feel assured other big sawmillina;
companies will locate at Sutherlin just
as soon as it is possible to put the
Roach company's loss tin tho market.
