ALASKA COAL. LINE IS PLAN"
Regular Operation Ont of Astoria
Is Being Considered.
ASTORIA. Or., Feb. I. (Special.)
The operation of a Tegular line of
steamers between the Columbia river
and Alaska and the bringing here or
supplies of government-owned Alaska
coal are among the possibilities of the
immediate future. The Port of Astoria
commission has received notice from
the United States shipping board that
it will allocate at least one vessel for
that service, provided arrangements
are made here and in Portland to use
Alaska coal.
The coal has been tested by the
navy department and has been pro
nounced excellent for steaming. Sam
ples of it have been received by the
port authorities and they will be
tested for heating purposes, ir the
coal is found to be satisfactory in
Quality, details for the Inauguration
of the proposed steamer service will
be perfected.
According to the plans outlined by
the shipping board, the first vessel
will be ready for service next May.
It will have accommodations for from
30 to 40 passengers and will run to
Anchorage, touching at the principal
Alaskan coast points.
Such a service, it was declared,
would not only provide the Columbia
river cities with an adequate supply
ot cheap coal, but would also enable
Oregon merchants and manuacturers
to bid for a portion of the Alaskan
trade.

WHEAT AGAIN AT LOW FOINT
More Offerings Are Reported In Country
Districts Coarse Grains Weak.
Wheat prices again declined yesterday
and are now practically down to the low
level ot the season at country buying
points. More wheat was reported for sale
on the market than heretofore. At the
Merchants Exchange hard white bids at
50 were the same' as on Monday, but
club and soft white were 5 cents lower at
$1.45. For the other grades $1.40 was bid.
Offers for white oats were reduced $1
and eastern bulk corn was $11.50 lower.
Among the wheat sales In the east for
export were purchases of 200,000 bushels
by Italy and Holland. "
A Buenos Ayres cable said new wheat
is in plentiful supply and farmers are
anxious to unload, due to the unfavorable
financial condition of the country at the
present time. Weather In Argentina con
tinues fine.
The Canadian wheat visible decreased
32,000 bushels and the oats visible in
creased 374,000 bushels.

GOOD MARKKT FOR OREGON FLOUR
Dutch Kast Indies Would Be Outlet With
Direct (Steamer Line.
Aided by an Australian export embargo
on flour, American exporters have in
creased shipments to the Dutch East In
dies from 46 tons during the first eight
months of 1910 to 2646 tons during the
corresponding period of 1020, according to
a report to the department of commerce.
American flour has a good reputation in
the Dutch East Indies market', the report
says, and, prices being equal, the United
States has a good opportunity to share the
market with Australia.
"With American ships sailing direct
from San Francisco, Portland and Puget
sound, and a well-equipped importing
house In this colony prepared to do close
merchandising," it adds, 'lt is possible
that American flour could gain a consider
able proportion of the market under nor
mal conditions. Transshipment charges.
and especially the roundabout route via
Japan and Singapore, make it impossible
for American flour to compete with the
Australian product under present condi
tions. Australian exporters have close
connections in this colony and keep open
an easy channel for the purchase of all
kinds of provisions."

CEXTS AT CHICAGO.
May Option at Cheapest Point of
Season Drop in Exchange
Also Factor.
CHICAGO, Feb. 1. Untoward Indus
trial and financial conditions, together
with a big new Dreatt In Argentine prices,
led to sharp setback today In wheat.
The close was weak. 4 to Sic net lower,
with March 1.55 to 1.50ii and May
$1.43 to J1.44. Corn finished unchanged
to c down; oats off HHc to o and
provisions at 15 to 40c decline.
Notwithstanding efforts of some bulls
to show that the United States wheat
trade Is virtually on a domestic basis, the
big discount on Argentine wheat proved
a heavy weight. Explanations that the
acute depression of values in Argentina
was due to financial difficulties served
only to emphasize bearish sentiment.
Downturns in European exchange counted
also as a depressing factor, and so did the
railroad wage controversy and the appar
ent unlikelihood of favorable action on
the emergency tariff bill. On the result
ing breaks, export business totaling eou.umi
bushels was noted. The close was at the
bottom prices, with May at the lowest yet
for the crop. ,
Corn and oats touched new low prices,
but profit taking brought rallies. The de
clines were ascribed to sympathy wltn
wheat and to liberal receipts of corn.
The Chicago market letter received yes
terday by the Overbeck & Cooke company
of Portland said: .
"Wheat Started weak and lower and ai
i u . .or low level did
not break out the anticipated liquidation,
prices dragged Irregularly downward ana
closed at the bottom. Early advices from
the seaboard and abroad told of almost
complete absence of export interest ana
claimed Belgium was buying wheat in Ar
gentina at 12 cents under American. '
ly before the close tne seaooai"
reau confirmed 600,000 bushels taken here.
which was quite a surprise to the traae.
Country offerings to arrive are
to be small In all sections, i-""' "
reported a much better flour aemanu
11 directions for prompt
reports from other milling centers were i
the same general tone. The domestic out
look Is very encouraging.
-Corn The decline to new low figures
on the crop again met substantial buying
power and although the recovery was by
no means pronouncea. tne mi,,. -much
firmer tone during the last hour.
7ecelDts were 3S8 cars ana soia i
day s basis to a shade easier. A Kansas
message reporting feeders paying 6j to io
cents a bushel for corn on farms attracted
considerable attention. Certainly, it must
be realized that even at the prices men
tioned, which is much better than obtain
able at terminals, corn is a very p"""""
feeding proposition.
