Trospects for good crops through
out the twelfth fcde-al reserve dis
trict are now bettor than at any
other time this year, although the
season is from three to four weeks
late. Fays John Perrin, federal re
serve acent. In California, lack of
rain, cold nights, and north winds
durinc the past month, have Eeriouslv
interfered with prowth of field
crops; hut In the Pacific northwest
and intermountain sections heavy
rains and snows have assured abun
dant moisture for summer field crops.
Althouerh condition of winter wheat Is
somewhat better than at this time
last month, production in the prin
cipal wheat states in the district will
he approximately 20 per cent short of
the lfilS crop, as indicated In the

Unless damage from freezing dur
inn the winter is greater than at
present anticipated, the prune, cherry
and apricot crops of the Pacific north
west will bo approximately normal
the berry crop between 80 and 100
per cent of normal; and the pear crop
50 per cent of normal. Peach trees
were badly frozen, particularly in
the Yakima valley, and, as a result.
practically no peach crop is expected.
K&crllent Hane Assured.
I. ate rains and heavy snows, ex
cept in California, have assured excel
lent range for the coming season
but have retarded the movement of
livestock to the ranges, with the re
sult that many cattle are now in
only fair condition. Lambing was
generally satisfactory, but some ab
normal lamb losses were reported,
particularly in Oregon and Washing
ton. Although slrfaring has been de
layed from three to six weeks, the
early shorn wools are showing good
condition, average growth, and light
shrinkage. Buyers have not yet en
tered the market actively, and be
cause of this and car shortage, wool
movement is small. Such sales as
are being made average from 60 to 70
cents per pound.
The high price of silver continues
to stimulate production of silver and
lead, but lack of labor supply, equal
ing only about 60 to 85 per cent of
demand, is retarding extraction of
ores and resulting in neglect of de
velopment work. The present low
price of copper, combined with high
wasres and high cost of production, is
materially curtailing copper produc
tion, most of the copper mines in the
district now operating at only 50 per
cent of capacity.
Daily production of petroleum in
California during April averaged 274,
877 barrels, as compared with 276
001 barrels in March. Shipments av
eraired "90.423 barrels per day, there
hv decreasing stored stocks by 466,38
harreli Thirty-seven new wells,
with an initial daily production o
E.110 barrels, were opened, and fiv
wellR were abandoned during April
At the present rate of production and
consumption, supplies of stored stock
in California usable for commercia
purposes will probably be exhausted
before the close of 1921.
Sales Average Smaller.
Sales of retail stores in this district
averaged, by value, 1.3 per cent
smaller during April than during
March, but 25 per cent greater during
April. 1920, than during April, 1919.
Sales by wholesale firms were ap
proximately 1 per cent smaller by
value during April than during
March, but 42 per cent greater during
April, 1920, than during April, 1919.
In all reporting wholesale lines, with
the exception of groceries, where
sales during April exceeded those in
March by il.2 per cent, April sales
were from 7 to 18 per cent less than
during the preceding month, although
from 15 to 40 per cent greater than
during the same month in 1919. While
the price tendency continues upward,
retail stores report a softening in
prices of a few commodities, whole
sale dry goods stores reporting a ten
dency for prices to decline.
Interest and discount rates in In
dustrial centers continued to show a
tendency to stiffen during the past
month, although not sufficiently to
change prevailing rates previously re
ported of from 6 to 7 per cent. In
agricultural sections the prevailing
rate remains 8 per cent. Statement
of customary rates charged by banks

district is traversed by the Southern

The bonds of the city of Toppenish

"My recommendation to investors

last a great while " said John L.

"Such remarkably low purchase
prices, with the unusually high yields
which have been prevailing, will have
to give way to new conditions, which
just now are swinging back to normal
Readjustment of the money market
will inevitably result in higher prices
and lower yields, hence now is the

"The civil war developed conditions
similar to those now prevailing. Fol
lowing that period a shift to normal

afforded will be gone, probably never

Retired Chief Master at Arras of
Xafy Hopes to Accomplish
Trip in 2 5 Days.
SEATTLE, Wah., June 6. (Spe
cial.) In a 22-foot open boat, with
out auxiliary engine and equipped
with only three small sails, no cabin
and barely sufficient room for stor
age of provisions, Helgar Torsensen,
aged 60, a. retired chief master at
arms of the United States navy, set
sail alone from Bremerton today with
San Francisco and Vallejo, Cal., as his
Torsensen, when friends attempted
to dissuade him from what they con
sidered a rash act, expressed no fear
and, on the contrary, confidence that
he would arrive in San Francisco har

ncestors dating back to the days of

Ambition Lone C'berlshed.
It has been his ambition for the
last several years of his life to make
ust such a trip as that on which he
tarted this week a trip down the
oast in an open boat, a feat that no
ne has accomplished before.
This is Torsensen's second start for
an Francisco. He attempted the feat
last fall, but was stopped by naval
uthorities upon appeal from his wife.
Mrs. Torsensen has given her consent
this year, however, .and was at the
ock to bid the determined mariner
good-bye. Her objection last year
was due to the fact that her husband
had not started on the trip until late
in the fall when stormy weather .had
lready begun. The old salt was
somewhat nettled at the time that his
trip should be Interfered with, but
eld his peace until the arrival of
this year's balmy summer days.
'I am worried to death, says Mrs.
Torsensen, "but have given my con
ent and shall not interfere this
lme. There s no use trying to change
man's mind once he has it set and
thought I might as well agree as
Torsensen expects his greatest dif
iculty in crossiug the straits and de
lared that once past Cape Flattery
he would .have "plain sailing."
IV Ordinary Chuck" Carried.
Bacon and ordinary "chuck" of the
sea is not Torsensen s idea of good
ating. "I've had lots of those days,"
he said as he stored his little boat
with large quantities of chicken, cake,
elly, pie, ham and eggs and home-
baked bread. Torsensen s motive
power for the trip consists of a fore
sail, mainsail and jib. An American
flag was one of the first "necessities"
which the old sailor took aboard.
The ex-navy man was discharged
on pension in 1913, but answered, the
call at the outbreak of the war at
he naval station at Puget sound, re
iring. again with the cessation of
hostilities. The Torsensen's are "old-
timers" in Bremerton, having lived
where the ex-master at arms was sta-
oned for the last 29 years.
A son, Allan, is an overseas veteran
and was gassed in battle in France.
