BAG BUYERS WAIT
Purchases to Date Are Below
FARMERS AWAIT DECLINE
Bulk Talk Is Also Factor Statisti
cal Position of Market Is
Bullish Jfo Surplus
' Is in Sight.
There is not much business in the train
bag market these aays. It is time that the
farmers were providing tor their require
ments, but nearly all of them are holding
back. They figure that prices cannot go
higher and that there is a chance of a
break coming sooner or later, so they are
putting off their buying until the last possi
ble moment. They have had a little en
couragement already, as one or two dealers
hire reduced their bag prices, but on the
whole the market Is fairly steady.
The talk of bulk shipping, which Is more
or less general all over the Northwest. Is
also an influence in retarding the bag move
ment. Yet, so far as can be learned, not
much has been done In the wheat-growing
sections Jn the mater of providing elevators
for the handling of grain in bulk. The grain
dealers are not lending any encouragement to
the building of elevators, and If any are con
structed. It will bo with farmers' money.
After the war Is over, when bag prices again
become normal and shipping by the Canal
route is resumed, the elevators are likely to
be found an unprofitable investment, in the
opinion of the grain trade.
In the meantime, there has been no in
crease in the available supply of bags, and
the stocks in sight will not be top-heavy.
If the Coast crops come up to estimates.
"Writing to a local bag dealer, a San Fran
cisco firm says, under date of May 17:
'The market here on bags remains un
changed with somewhat more inquiries than
we have had for Aulte a while. We our
selves have sold quite a number of bags
in the last few days at 13 c each, although
In comparatively small lota. Probably some
bags are obtainable from speculators at
slightly less money, but these are not being
altered very freely. ,
"A cable was received here in San Fran
cisco a few days ago, which gave the clear
ances of bags to the Pacific Northwest as
JO.3OO.OO0 and to San Francisco 13,100,000, or
a total OF23.40O 00 for the Coast; these fig
ures are said to Include the 'Atagonsan
.Maru' and Barotse which sailed May 4
and May 8, respectively, both direct to San
The actual, available supply of Calcutta
bags now here on the Coast we think less
than G00O -bales and when harvesting starts
in a week or two, it should not take long
to absorb tha suppl. Our own Ideas on the
situation are still bullish, notwithstanding
numerous discouraging reports emanating
from your section of the country, and we
cannot help but feel that one of these days
the bears' in the north will realize that
there are not as many bags available as they
now think. . .
'Reports now coming in as to the crops
In California Bhow an Improvement over
former estimates, and we believe that wheix
the season is over the same will apply to the
LOCAL WHEAT MARKET IS STEADS
Business Is Quiet Here and at Country
Tho local wheat market was steady yes
terday because of the moderate Improvement
at Chicago, but trading was exceedingly
quiet. At the Merchants' Exchange bluestem
.bids "were 1 cent to 2 cents higher than on
Tuesday, but other-bids were practically un
changed. The condition of the Winter vheat crop m
France is placed at 68 per cent and the
Spring crop at 72 per cent. The acreage
Is 12.U00.00O, compared with 14.100,000 last
In an Interview, President Marcey, of the
Armour Grain Company, was credited with
saying that the wheat crop of North Amer
ica will be &00,OO0,0OO bushels under that
of last year. Mr. Marcey says that the
Winter wheat crop of the United States is, in
poor shape, and this condition, with the de
creased acreage in the American Northwest,
suggests a falling off In the production of
,00,000,000 bushels. Ho is counting on a
shortage In Canada of 200,000.000 bushels,
due to the curtailed acreage and labor con
ditions. Mr. Marcey jaj-i that he ha not
thought of the effect of a definite peace
move on the market, but emphasizes the
prospective shortages in North America and
decreased acreages in foreign countries, lie
further believes that the com acreage m
the United States will be large, and that the
start of the oats crop is generally good.

WINTER WHEAT GROWTH IS FAIR
tool Weather Retards Progress of fpring
Following fs a summary of the crop con
ditions in Oregon for the week ending May
23. 1918, as reported to the local office of
the Weather Bureau by special correspond
ents throughout the state:
The week Just closed was generally cool
and showery throughout, although the open
ing ami closing days were mild and fa
vorable. Agricultural operations as a con
sequence were somewhatlnterfered witht
as the ground in the western .counties
was too wet for working.
Farm work progressed in. most eastern
counties and Summer fallowing is nearly
finished. Seeding also has been practically
completed. Winter wheat and alfalfa made
fair growth, but the cool weather retarded
the growth of Spring wheat, oats, barley,
corn and garden truck. Pasturage is good
and stock Is thriving.
The frosts and freezing temperatures
of the preceding week are found to have
caused considerable injury to fruit in ex
treme southern and eastern counties and
Indications are for a light crop of peaches
and a fair yield of cherries. Reports on
the apple crop from southwestern coun
ties were not received.
The rains bave saturated tho ground in
many sections and under the mild influence
of tho opening days vegetation made no
ticeable advancement. What is needed now
is higher temperatures svlth plenty of sun
shine. BCTTKR BOARD READY FOR WORK

Reading Conspicuous in Its Decline
From Recent High Record ; Move

NEW YORK. May 24. In the vernacular
of the speculative element, today's market
went through the process of- "healthy re
action," Investment stocks as well as spe
cialties developing marked heaviness on
fairly large dealings.
Washington's note to the British govern
ment anent mail detentions and the Krencn
admission of a German gain in a portion or
tho Verdun sector formed the basie of
bearish sentiment, but in all likelihood to
day's reversal resulted chiefly from the be
lief that. the upswing had proceeded almost
too rapidly for safety.
Reading, which led the recent advance
on Its series of new high reeords, culminating
In the previous day's maximum of 110, was
not less conspicuous on the decline, falling
to 103 ;i and closing at lO-J'.i, an overnight
loss of 5 '4 points.
Other active rails were lower, at inter
vals iwith the exception of Rock Island, which
was in marked demand at an extreme gain
of 2 Vie to 214. presumably in consequence
of the company's excellent earnings and
progress towards a friendly reorganization.
The movement of specialties was confus
ing, suggesting a conflict between the short
and long accounts, but higher prices pre
vailed atter midday. Mexicans wre once

Official Report I-rcdlrte Prune
Crop Smaller Yield Kxs-ertcd

OLYMPIA, "Wash.. May 24. Spe
claL) Clarke County's) prune crop Is
the only fruit, yield of the state that
came triumphantly through the unusu
ally severe weather of last Winter and
this Spring, according to the official
orchard report made by T. O. Morrison
assistant Stato Commissioner of Agri
culture in charge of the division of
horticulture. - v
Despite considerable dunnage caused
by limbs breaking: under the strain of
the ."silver thaw." Clarke County this
season will produce 7,000,000 pounds of
dried prunes, against last year's output
01 4,aou.uou pounds.
The fruit crop generally in Western
Washington will be less than normal.
Indications are that Cuthbert TasDber-
ries will not yield more than 60 per
cent of the usual crop, and loganberries
not more than 40 per cent, with black
berries probably averaging around 75
per cent, due to Winter injury to the
canes. Apples and pears will not be
more than normal, and in some In
stances the crop will be light In West
ern Washington. This will be true of
cherries In Southwest Washington, with
a heavier yield further north.
Taking the state as a whole, fruit
crop conditions indicate that the pres
ent growing season is from one to two
weeks later than common. Soft fruits
ore quite generally Winter injured, this
damage being increased by several de
grees of freesing Jlay 10". 11 and 12.
Generally the damage has been com
paratively light on the bench lands.

There are approximately ;.00",oo
rtio tor-driven vehicles in thei

in transportation methods has
come a new era in road construc

haustive tests nnd practical ex
perience, desisrnated aa the stand
