WHEAT MARKET FIRMER
Advances of Two to Four Cents in
Bids Posted Offerings by
4 Farmers Are Small.
Frank E. Ryer. manager of the Ryer
Grain company, was erected president of
the Merchants Excnange association at
the annual meeting of the association
yesterday. T. A. Rises, of the Vollmer
Clearwater company, was chosen vice
president; R. S. McCarl, of the Portland
Flouring Mills company, secretary-treasurer,
and A. M. Chrystall. of Balfour
Guthrie & Co.. and H. A. Martin of
Kerr, Gifford & Co., directors.
The wheat market had a firmer tone
yesterday and bids wer 2 to 4 cents
higher at the exchange. Offers in the
open market were near the closing level
of last week afld the demand continued
limited. Offerings by farmers were also
No further changes in flour prices were
announced by mills. Stocks of old. flour
are light and command a premium over
new crop flour.
The Chicago wire to the Gray-Rosen-br.um
Grain company, follows:
"Some Improvement export business
started shorts covering and good
rally was had to which " market
entitled. European conditions, how
ever, remain discouraging. Liverpool
market is very weak because of
pcor demand and free offerings. Diffi
cult to anticipate anything but tem
porary rallies from shorts covering. Pres
sure from country too heavy for rela
tively light demand."
"Argentina and Canada have offered
wheat freely abroad and foreigners have
no trouble in supplying all their de
mands, Argentina continues to ship more
freely than has been expected, says
the market letter of the J. Roeenbaum
Grain company. "Until the foreign sltua
t on improves it is questionable whether
Importers will take hold in a manner
that might be indicative of a final
change. European crop advices were
rather unfavorable and with European
requirements estimated to exceed those
of last year, export buying sooner or
leter will become a factor.
"Wheat has a thoroughly liquidated
appearance and, although current con
ditions may not be conducive to stim
ulating investment buying, it is well to
bear in mind that present values dis
count much, if not all, that is unfavor
able to values. Stocks in New York show
a good tone and business conditions are
much better than they were last year.
Eventually the situation will develop
features that should prove favorable to
higher prices. December wheat around
$1 per bushel is on debatable ground
with advantage in favor of buyers.
September wheat at Liverpool closed
4d lower at 8s lOd and December
SVid lower at 8s lOd.
World shipments of wheat and flour
last week were 12,913.000 bushels against
13.713.000 bushels last year.

BUTTER CONSUMPTION 18 LARGER
Baring Stimulated by Lowfr Prices and
Market Closes Firmer.
The eastern butter markets were firm
throughout the week. Since July 1 the
storing demand has not been sufficient
to take care of the receipts not needed
for consumption. Because of the large
stocks already in storage and the rela
tive undesirabillty of July butter for stor
ing, it then became a question of increas
ing the demand for consumption to a
point where it would absorb the receipts
so that there would be no surplus on the
street. This necessitated lower prices and
the lower prices in turn widened the
outlets, both for consumption and stor
age. At the same time, receipts gradual
ly became lighter and it was evident that
at some point the consumptive demand
would absorb the supply of fresh butter.
This point was apparently reached when
the prices reached a low point for the
season. Since then prices have gradually
climbed, stocks have cleaned up well, and
the tone of the market was firm. Dur.
ing the week fancy butter was very
scarce due to lighter receipts and poor
The hot weather has cut production
and reduced the quality of butter and
later receipts will probably show more of
this condition; however. undergrades
were well cleaned up at the close of th
week The strike is probably causing
some delay in shipments of both cream
and butter, and this Is another factor
producing poor butter. Some export In
quiry and a small order for sweet butter
caused a speculative demand, especially
at Kew Tork. but prices climbed a little
too fast, however, for many orders.
At San Francisco the loss of 3c the
previous week was partially regained
when prices advanced 2 He from Friday
to Friday. Prices have fluctuated in this
manner during the past seven weeks and
P2 score closed at Sc. the exact price
on June 30. Receipts this year for the
above seven weeks snows a loss of
373.000 pounds. This decrease in receipts
is thought to be due to larger quantities
of butter being shipped direct from the
creameries to the south this year. Last
year many more cars were made up a:
San Francisco and shipped to Los An
geles The principal change in the mar
ket during the past week was the accumulation-
of undergrades and a corre
sponding easier tone. Top grades were
steady to firm and well cleaned up at
the end of the week.

S LIFTS WHEAT
EFFECT OF LIVERPOOL
BREAK IS OVERCOME.
Chicago Market Strong at Close
of Session; Improvements
in Export Business'.
CHICAGO. Aug. 21. Covering by
shorts late in the session today over
came an early decline in wheat prices
here caused by neavy continental liqui
dation at Liverpool and brought about
a rally which carried values above yes
terday's finish. New low records for
the season were touched early, but the
Inside figures were not maintained. The
close was strong with values ranging
from 14 to 1 cents higher, with Sep
tember $1.00 'to $1.01 and December
$1.02 to $1.02V4. Corn was up 14c,
oats gained He and c and provisions
were unchanged to 30 cents lower.
The market at Liverpool was said to be
overstocked because of heavy shipments
from this side of the Atlantic and slack
demand for their nearby wheat. Wheat
there dropped 13M. to 17H cents from
the close on August 8, compared with a
decline of about 5 to 6 cents here in the
same period- Chicago traders, however,
believe that the readjustment, between
the two markets has been completed.
Exporters are reported to have taken
700,000 bushels of wheat from Chicago
and a good export buslivess was said to
have been put through at the seaboard.
Sentiment was rather mixed at the last.
- Corn showed remarkable resistance to
selling pressure and while lower early
rallied quickly and closed firm. Short
covering found offerings small on the
way up. Unfavorable crop reports from
a wielp territory had some effect on the
market, soaking rains being needed in
many parts of the corn belt. Oats fol
Liquidation was ,pn in September lard
and with support coming mainly from
shorts, the range in provisions was gen
The Chicago grain letter received yes-
lorHuv hv tho n.nrWIr Jh- fnnkA Cn of
J Portland follows:
Wheat. The strength displayed today
was rather surprising In view of the ev
treme weakness in Liverpool and was
attributable to the development of an
oversold condition rather than to any
change in supply and demand conditions.
About the only thing that could be said
in favor of the market was that hedg
ing pressure from the northwest was
less conspicuous than for the past week
or ten days. No doubt the decline in
Liverpool was due largely to financial
unsettlement abroad, although cable ad
vices blamed it on large shipments from
North America. The on-passage state
ment, however, decreased more than
3.000,000 bushels last week, with the
total now 19.000.000 under last year.
Cash wheat was in good demand in most
markets at higher prices The end of
the rail strike, which seems not far dis
tant, will in all probability be followed
by an Influx of grain which will over
whelm buyers, unless there is a radical
improvement in the export demand and
at this time nothing of the sort is in
Corn. Started weak and lower, but
met support of much the same charac
ter as wheat and prices rallied when
shorts started to cover. News was col
orless aside from some complaints of
irreparable damage due to recent hot,
dry weather. These complaints came
from parts of Ohio, Illinois. Nebraska
and Kansas. Increased receipts must be
expected from time to time following
upturns in the market, but no burden
some movement is expected and if de
mand continues as at present it is not
hard to see where the cash position
might develop considerable strength.
Oats. Followed the upturn in corn
in a small way. - The feature was the
buying of December bythe interior, pre
sumably in the way of covering- short
contracts. Cash handlers report country
offerings to arrive light. The Increase
In the visible supply was unimportant.
Rye. Buying by cash and seaboard in
terest imparted strength to futures, more
than offsetting hedging pressure from
the northwest. The visible supply showed
an Increase of 1.237,000 for the week.
Cash prices steady.

Chicago Grain Pit Notes.
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
CHICAGO. Aug. 21. N. B. Updike of
Omaha, after a 350-mile trip in Ne
braska, wired that he estimated the
damage done to corn in that state by
hot and dry weather at 20 per cent.
Some damage is being ydone north of
the Platte river. Shock threshing of
wheat is practically over.
Threshing returns to the Northwestern
railroad from Minnesota show a yield
of spring wheat ranging from 15 to 23
bushels per acre; barley. 24 to 50 bush
els; oats, 22 to 70 bushels and rye, 20
to 46 bushels. In South Dakota yields
of wheat range from 10 to 32 bushels;
barley. 15 to 48 bushels; oats, 20 to 50
bushels, and rye, 10 to 27 bushels per
"Continued dry weather has nearly
ruined corn over a large territory," wired
LeOount to Stein, Alstein & Co.. from
Webster. S. D. "Corn seen today will
not make over 25 per cent of j a crop.
Threshing of spring wheat- will be fin
ished in ten days. Returns exceed early
Corn and cotton need rain all over the
Santa Fe railroad's territory, despite
xhowers over the southern section last
week. Farmers in Oklahoma are dis
posed to hold their wheat, although more
is being sold than the railroads can haul.
Kansas is selling freely. Many eleva
tors are filled and cars cannot be fur
nished in sufficient numbers to move
out the grain.
Corn stocks in Chicago are down to
1.224,000 bushels, the lowest In months.
while recently they were more than 11.
000.000 bushels. The visible, which was
recently the largest in years, is down to
8.115.000 bushels, as compared with 9,
909,000 bushels last year. These figures
do pot appeal to the average opera tor,
who believes that there is not much on
the buying side, should wheat decline.
A seaboard exporter wired that the
break in Liverpool probably was due to
prospects ot India removing export re
strictions on wheat. Another had it that
a stronger market for exchange and
lower ocean rates were one of the causes
for the break there.
Houses with Omaha connections were
large buyers of wheat and corn, on the
break today, said to be covering by
shorts. One of the largest local opera
tors also was a big buyer of short wheat
Lake rates, which recently were 1
cents a ousnei ior wneat ana corn to
Buffalo, were down to '2 cents today.
Prospects are for better supplies of coal
at lower prices. The bulk of the August
business has been provided for and the
sates recently made are easily cared for,
as there is a larger supply of boats. This
is temporary, as boats soon will be
wanted to move wheat and rye from Dur
luth and wheat from Fort Williams.

RAILWAY SHARES SCORE
Several in Group Go to Highest
JPoint for Year Day's Trans
actions Unusually Large.
- BY ALEXANDER PANA NOTES.
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
NEW YORK, Aug. 21. Beyond the
statement by tie chief of the engineers'
brotherhood that there would be no
"sympathetic" strike of transportation
workers, there was no new development
in the railway labor situation over Sun
day. Nevertheless, the advance In the
railway shares on the stock exchange
today was more emphatic than on any
day since the labor crisis became acute.
This advance, which ranged from 1 to
34 points in the active railway shares,
might perhaps have been ascribed merely
to the recovery from depression caused
by previous apprehension of a general
railway strike. But this would hardly
account for the actual movement, for the
reason that a considerable number of
the shares in that group went today to
the highest prices of the year. Further
more, the day's total transactions were
the largest since June 21, when the per
formance in Mexican Petroleum stirred
the whole market to violent activity.
Considering that the negotiations with
railway labor are not, yet completed, the
market's action may be described as .at
least a strong expression of financial
opinion regarding the outcome of the
matter. Presumably the further infer
ence would have to be drawn as to
financial onlninn -on the domestic busi
ness position after the labor troubles J
and the fuel shortage have been, cleared
Other stocks followed the rise in rail
way shares, though at a respectful dis
tance and probably with a good many
realizing sales on the basis of the recent
rise in the industrial part of the market.
BALDWIX AT YEAR'S HIGH POINT
Activity of Stock Due Mainly to Pool
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
NEW SfORK, Aug. 21- The activity
of Baldwin Locomotive, due mainly to
pool operations, carried that stock
to a ntLW high record for 1022 to date.
The movement started shortly after
Wall street received the news that
the company has just obtained another
order for 13 locomotives for the Union
Pacifio railroad, the contract calling for
the expenditure of about $900,000. In ad
dition, it was learned that the company
new has unfilled orders on its books
amounting to about $16,000,000, which is
the largest report since the spring of
last year. Other equipment companies
also have been receiving large orders
during recent months. American Loco
motive, Lima Locomotive, Railway Steel
Spring and Pressed Steel Car all gained
ground today, some of them selling
the highest of the year.
Something new under the sun in "Wall
street Is a pool in bonds, but it is a fact
that two or three of them are now at
work taking advantage, of the steadiness
of the market and the continued demand
for investment securities.
Reports which have been received in
the financial district from corporations
engaged in selling farm equipment and
other necessities of the agricultural in
dustry have proved surprisingly good,
particularly since the first day of August.
With Canadian exchange at per cent
discount, it is proving a surprise to bank
ers here to see gold still being forwarded
by London to New York. Rene Leon,
manager of the bullion division of the
Guaranty Trust company of New York,
today made the following comment: "The
cost of shipping gold from England to
America being approximately per
cent, it would be quite simple for Great
Gritain to retain the yellow metal within
the borders of the empire by lodging and
ear-marking gold in the Bank of Eng
land for account of the Canadian gov
ernment, which would in turn issue its
notes against this metal and sell Cana
dian exchange for the equivalent of the
notes issued. Any exchange sold at
per cent .discount or better would not
only show a profit to the Canadian gov
ernment, but obviate the necessity of
sending gold outside of the British im
Figures compiled by one of the leading
sugar refiners on the holdings of sugars
in Europe would suggest to the trade at
least that a very good demand from
abroad may be expected over most. of
the year. Out of six countries from
which reports have been received, the
stocks of sugar are smaller than last
year with the exception of France and
Holland, both small sugar users, fcwhere
the stocks are larger.
STATE DEBTS ARE , $1,071,506,981
Per Capita Liability $10.18, Says Survey
of Bank of American
NEW YORK, Aug. 21. The state gov
ernments of the United States have a
total bonded debt of $1,071,506,981, or
$10.18 per capita, according to a survey
made public tonight by the Bank of
America. New York has the largest In
dividual state debt, totaling $267,784,000,
but its per capita debt of S15.07 is com
paratively low. South Dakota has the
largest per capita aeor,, $ a.u, wniie
Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska and Wis
consin have no bonded indebtedness.
The present per capita state debt is
approximately the same as the per cap
ita federal debt of $10.60 in 1913. The
present public debt of the federal govern
ment is $23,022,000,000, or approximately
$226 per capita.
