WOOL PRICE LIFTED
Large Baker Clip Is Taken at
LOCAL SPECULATOR BUYER
Three Hundred Thousand rounds
Change Hands In Echo Section.
"Washington rino Wool
Touches 42 4 Cents.
Although cold weather !s delaying shesr
Ing In Eastern Oregon a considerable part
of the clip. Has been removed in the early
sections and the market is developing- more
activity. Prices are steadily advancing un
der a Btrong demand.
The best price paid to date wag 50 cents.
This was for a large clip of very light cross
bred Baker wool, a local speculator being
the buyer. Other sales of Baker County wool
-were at 48 cents for coarse and 41 cents
The heaviest buying has been in the Echo
section, where about 300,00 pounds have
changed hands, mostly mixed clips at 40
cents to 43' cents. A lot of 100.000 pounds
of Washington fine wool was bought at 42V4
cents. This is the highest price that has
been paid for fine wool in that state.
The Oregon Wool Growers Association
yesterday announced the following schedule
of dates for the annual sealed bid sales:
Heppncr. June 15: Echo, June 18: Pilot
Ttock, June 19: Condon, June 21; Shanlko.
Juno 23; Bend and Redmond, June 25:
Madras and Maupin, June 26; Enterprise and
Joseph, June 27; Baker. June 28.
New-clip wools are beginning to move in
the Eastern markets. They have not arrived
as fast as they might have because of the
cold and wet weather which has retarded
shearing. Tet a few sales are reported and
some Idea of what values will be Is given
accordingly. The transfer of some Arizona
clips of fine wool at S3 cents are reported,
the estimated scoured cost being $1.40 to
$1.45. Moderate sales of fine Nevada are
noted in trade advices, the clean cost being
figured at $1.30 to $1.40. Also some quarter-blood
Utah has changed bands at 50
cents to 51 cents, or 00 cents to 05 cents
clean. The receipts are Increasing, but the
demand is such at this time that it would
take an extensive movement of new wools
eastward to make any impression. A mall
report from Boston says:
"An extraordinary movement In foreign
drools has marked the past week in this
market. The turnover of South American
staple has been practically all the business
accomplished, but the proportions of this
business have been such as to make an unu
sually large aggregate for the week. Some
thing like 13,000,000. pounds of South Amer
ican wools have been distributed during the
period, or a total which is larger than any
for a long while. This tremendous move
. ment has led to . advances in quotations
throughout the gamut of stocks, the offer
ings of South American wools now being
held at 10 per cent generally above previous
prices. The tendency of prices, moreover,
continues to be strongly upward.
'Such a business in South American
grades has reduced stocks unsold consider
ably, of course, but this diminution has
been offset partially by further arrivals. The
buying has been led by mills holding Gov
ernment contracts. It has been followed by
active speculation by dealers. The estimates
of sales of South American Involve some
2.000,000 pounds of scoured and carbonized
low quarters to half-bloods and approximate
ly 5,000,00,0 pounds similar wooM scoured
before shipment. Added to this are some
7,000,000 pounds of South American scoured
lambs wool and other offerings which have
been absorbed. Prices for the lambs wool
mentioned have been from 75 to 83 cents,
the opening business of the period being at
75 cents to 80 cents clean for 4b and 5s, but
the market quickly advancing to 85 cents
to S3 cents."
DENVER, Colo., May IT. Woolbuyers
from Eastern market centers were plentiful
this Spring In producing sections ot the
West. In cities and towns from Magdaleaa
nd Roswell, N. M.. north to Montrose and
Grand Junction, in Colorado, and on north
ward Into Wyoming there hardly Is a settle
ment where wool can be shipped that has
not been visited by a woolbuyer.
Shearing is backward, especially in Colo
rado and sections further north. On the
"western slope" of Colorado, shearing had to
be abandoned after being commenced, be
cause the sudden cold weather was danger
ous to the shorn animals. Sheepmen this
Spring are taking unusual care of their ani
mals, for with wool bringing a figure that
will produce many dollars from one animal's
fleece, the usual Spring losses alone amount
to a considerable figure.
Mutton, too. Is at a high figure and this
Is considered In the losses. The rigors of the
past "Winter have played an Important part
In the sheepgrower's budget, depth of snow
being such that many sheep were unable to
reach grazing and consequently starved or
were subjected to such emaciation that
torms ended their lives.
Estimates of the wool clip from nearly
every section are high, so that, with "the
prevailing high prices, the woolgrower ap
pears In line for an unusual return on his
investment this Spring, except in those in
stances where the wool was "contracted"
before the present price level was reached.

METALS LEAD MOVEMENT
United States Steel Sells at Alghest
Quotation of Year Coppers Are
Strong on Report of Largo
NEW TOIIK, May 17. On transactions
slightly In excess of 1.000,000 shares, today's
market supplemented for the most part Its
gains of the previous session. Removal of
some of the uncertainties In the foreign sit
uation and further Indications of the assured
success of the Government's bond offering
constituted the chief moving factors.
Speculative interest, with a sprinkling of
public Inquiry, centered largely around steel
and iron industrials, especially those Issues
related to the equipment ant munition
groups. United States Steel's blgn quota
tion of the day, 122, represented a new
record for the year. Part of this gain was
canceled In the more Insistent selling for
profits of the last hour.
Foremost among the other strong indus
trials and specialties were Lackawanna. Su
perior and Gull States Steels at gross ad
vances of 8 to 6 points. New York Air
Brake added 6 points to yesterday's substan
tial rise at 14S. Harvester Corporation.
Westlngbouse and Colorado Fuel were higher
by 2 to 3 points at best quotations, but fell
back with the general list.
Coppers were apathetic until the final hour,
when they came into brisk action on reports
of the consummation of a large Government
contract. Shippings were among the moet
prominent shares, their strength probably
resulting from the arrival of an American
naval force In British waters.
- RaMs failed to record more than moderate
advances, though more active than recently.
Advices from Middle Western and North
western points, which reported promising
crop conditions, accounted for the better
tendency by grangers. a
Heaviness, which at times verged upon
weakness, was denoted by the motors, sugars
and minor rails. Lake Erie A Western pre
ferred lost 5 points at 30 and Cuban Ameri
can Sugar J at 10U.
Russian exchange reacted moderately from
yesterday's recovery, a similar trend being
shown by the bonds ot that country.
The general bond market was Irregular on
lighter offerings. Total sales, par value.
$2,870,000. United States Government bonds
were unchanged on call.

ALLIES TO RESELL
Wheat Previously Bought in
America Will Be Unloaded.
CHICAGO SLUMPS AGAIN
Opening Sales Are) 7 to 1 6 Cents
Older Previous Day's Prices
and but Little of Loss Is
Regained at Close.
CHICAGO. May IT? Wheat slid rapidly
downward in value today, hurried by reports
nai in, united states Oovernment had re
quested Great Britain and her European
allies to relinquish Immense holdings of
Hoard of Trade future delivery wheat con
tracts purchased here and in other leading
aomestlc grain renters. At the furthest
point of the break prices were off as much
ss 16 rents, but something of a reaction
followed and the close, although unsettled.
w"" a' to llo net decline, with July at
2.IO and September Il.Ol). Other leading
staples all shared In the setback, corn finish
ing lc to 2o down, oats lower by c
and provisions 12c to 65c
Bearish response of the wheat market to
assertions of contemplated huge reselling
on the part of foretgnera was Instantaneous.
Opening sales ran all the way from T to IS
cents under yesterday's latest figures, and
It was not until the last hour of the ses
sion that even slightly better prices could
be obtained than were current at the outset.
Additional reports that the entente allies
would be required to cease or at least abate
to a large degree their vast wheat-buying
operations In the United mates tended to
keep te market depressed. On the other
hand, the circumstance that the American
Government woulc be expected to guar
antee In return that the British and the
other allied governmenta would. If need be,
receive adequate and timely supplies from
this side ot the Atlantla acted as an offset
Announcement of a renewed embargo on
wheat by Argentina seemed to count a. little
In helping prices to recover somewhat. Crop
conditions, however, were decidedly in favor
of the bears. Besides, the arbitrary curtail
ment of trading privileges was still a notable
depressing factor, and operated to keep the
total amount of business within limits that
ordinarily would not occupy the pit a good
quarter of an hour.
Corn and oats, although much more active
than wheat, were governed mainly by their
necessary relation to that cereal and by
ravorabie crop conditions. Big recent export
purchases of oats, estimated at l.RoO.OOO
bushels, acted as a prop, though, to some ex
tent for both of the feed grains.
Bouses wtth foreign connections were con
spicuous on the selling side ot provisions.
1 he declines which ensued brought out fairly
liberal buying by packers.
