"Everywhere the landscape is glorious
with growing crops," declares A. W. Doug
Ins, chairman of statistics of the cham
ber of commerce of the United States in a
report made on nation-wide conditions.
Mr. Douglas cites the general spirit of
the times which demands prices because
it can get them as one outstanding rea
son for high prices of food In the face of
such abundant produotlon. The cost of
production and Inadequate transportation
are given as other factors.
"We shall harvest about 32r,00t(,000
bushels of spring wheat, provided black
rust does not get Into spring wheat," says
Mr. Douglas. "There will be more oats.
Also more hay, an Immense yield, in fact.
"And this is of vital moment to all rais
ers of livestock.
"The corn crop looks most promising,
but Its yield depends on the amount of
rain it receives In July. Cotton Is coming
"The apple crop, despite a heavy 'June
drop," promises to be the largest in many
years. There are numerous people who,
like the Shulamite maid In the Song of
Solomon, desire to be stayed with flag
ons and comforted with apples. They at
least will have the apples this year, what
' apples mean commercially may be gath
ered from the statement that about 60,000
cars are annually shipped to market at a
value of about $72,000,000.
"Among the growing and Important ag
ricultural industries Is that of dairying,
with an annual production worth about
$2,000,000,000, It is supplanting the im
portation of canned milk in states where
the dairy cow was once only the posses
sion of private families.
"Tho great grazing ranges of the west
are generally in good condition. There
are dry spots here and there, but on the
whole throughout the country the pre
cipitation has been abundant. Small
grains and fruits, however, in some por
tions of California were much damaged
by an early drouth. .
"Naturally the question arises, why are
prices of food products still so high when
the supply Is abundant? There are sev
eral reasons. The cost of production Is
greater than ever before. This is espe
cially noticeable in livestock because of
the high cost of feed and of labor. Trans
portation la more expensive and most in
adequate. The demand, both domestic
and foreign, is still very large. Then there
is the general spirit of the times, which
asks prices becaase it can get them. A
lessened demand, which will come with a
slowing up in general business activity,
will be the prelude to lower prices in

lOCAL WOOL MARKET STILL SLOW
Moderate Movement Is Reported In Boston
The wool market baa not opened up
here in spite of continued reports of some
movement In Boston. There has been some
activity on a consignment basis.
The New York Commercial says of the
"Lew prices for wool and noils seem to
be creating some demand in the market
here. A moderate movement has been
accomplished this week with speculat
ing buying conspicuous in the case of
noils. Medium sorts have participated in
the business, including quarter-blood
fleeces. A considerable turnover of quar-
terb'.oods la reported for the period, sates
being made generally at 4 cents, but
sometimes for less. Transfer of approxi
mately 100. 000 pounds nas been made In
one quarter on a basis of 80 cents scoured.
"About 83,000 pounds of the carbonized
Australian wool has been sold on a basis
of $1.40. Further Bales have been made
from the atocks of Australian wool held
here on account of the British govern
ment. The sales of such stock since June
20, when the lower reserve limits went Into
effect, have been about 5300 bales. The
sales have Involved mainly the best comb
ing at a range of $1.40 to $1.60, scoured
basis. This leaves about 11.000 bales for
distribution. Other foreign sorts sold here
Include 80.00O pounds Montevidlo half
blood 60s at $1.38 clean.
"Consignments of territory wools con
tinue to be made freely, but dealers are
loth to take medium and low grades, even
on this basis. Advances over 13 per cent
will not be made for such staple and,- as
some growers are holding for 25 cents on
the same, dealers are free of any burden
from them. Jt la difficult to fix a basis
for territory wool in this" market, but
approximately quotations are made, as
follows: Fine staple, $1.70 to $1.75 clean;
fine and fine medium clothing. $1.50 to
$1.60.. The early lots of Utah wools have
been made on the basis of $1.60 to $1.65
for fine: and fine medium."
Walla Walla Onions bo Readily.
Walla Walla onions are now making
their appearance In the Portland market

A few express shipments of Elberta
peaches from California have already be
gun to come in and there has been no
trouble In moving them at $2.50 a box.
Beginning next week there will be large
quantities of these peaches available to
take care of the Portland demand.
Peaches promise to be scarce In the
Portland market this year.. There will be
no Willamette valley crop this year and
the Takima crop also will be light this
year. The consequence Is that thla city

The market price of raspberries has
gone down to $3 a crate. The drop fol

their price from 25 to 15 cents a pound.

At first the wheat market had an up

largely to apprehension that dry weather
might injure the corn crop. Later, how

The Chicago market letter received yes

Portland said of the Chicago market:
Wheat Advanced with other grains but
failed to hold, as there- wa-s nothing n

buying side. It was intimated early that
the British commission showed some in

too far out of line to permit any business.
Cash markets were weak in Chicago and
the southwest, while in Minneapolis prices

volume of export business has been a keen

news was a message from New York dwell

as deplorable with that grain offered 45

tinue Work on Road Is

unfinished would result in heavy
financial loss to the company.

ple protested and' undertook to tell
Judge Stapleton something about the
roads in Polk county, but Judge
Stapleton replied that he had been
riding those roads for 50 years and
knew all about them.

the attorney wanted to cite law, that
he knew what public sentiment was
In this road building matter and the
court directed that the Warren Con-
truction company proceed.
The company will resume laying
pavement this morning. The Oregon
Paving company's contract and Oskar
Huber's contract were not included
in the order by Judge Stapleton.
