PORTLAND 1 IS LAUDED PROMISE TO HELP DEVELOP STATE INVITES PRAISE. Representative Sinnott Speaks Be fore Irrigation Congress on Iteclamaiton Problems. J BEND, Or., Oct. 6. (Special.) Gratification at the interest being taken by Portland and the Portland Chamber of Commerce in the affairs of the state at large and irrigation, was expressed here by Representa tive Sinnott, who believes that Port land business, men are in a position to perform an immense service to the cause of irrigation. Mr. Sinnott is a visitor at the irrigation con gress. He referred especially to the speech made by O. W. Mielke, Port land chamber president, pledging Portland's support to the develop ment of the state at large. The oil lands leasing bill has re sulted in revenues amounting to $500,000 monthly being turned into the coffers of the reclamation serv ice, said Mr. Sinnott. In connection with the results of this bill he mentioned the adjustment soon to be made on the Red river contest which is -expected to turn a large sum into the coffers of the reclama tion service. Members of the irrigation con gress left Bend this morning in an automobile caravan, with O. C. Henkle of Bend driving the pilot car. The caravan drove through the Tumalo project and sections of the central Oregon irrigation project. In the afternoon they toured the agency plains and returned to Bend by way of Prineville, arriving here this evening in time fo.- the dinner at the Elks' club. Adoption of the entire repo of recommendations of the Oregon de velopment board, submitted yester day afternoon, was effected late last night at a special session. DIVIDEND M PER CENT STANDARD OIL OF NEW YORK MIIiL CXT HUGE MELON'. Capital to Be Increased at Once to $225,000,000 and Stock Reduced to $25 Share. NEW YORK, Oct. 6. Directors of the Standard Oil company of New York today declared a stock dividend of 200 per cent, increasing the capi tal stock from $75,000,000 to $225, 000,000 and reducing the par value of the stock from $100 to $25. Immediately after the aanounce ment the stock, which is- quoted on the curb exchange, jumped 20 points, to 596, a new high record. A special meeting of stockholders has been, called for November 3 to vote on the proposition. The divi dends, iC approved, will be payable of record December 1. A notice sent to stockholders sets forth that no change in the capital has taken place since the declara tion of a 400 per cent stock dividend in 1913 and that even that increase left assets still considerably in ex cess of capitalization. The notice explains that by ap preciation in value of property and by successful and conservative con duct of its business, the assets of the company are now much in ex cess of par value of its'present au thorized capital'and that the board deems it advisable to increase the capital so that it shall more nearly correspond with the actual value of its assets. The statement adds that directors believe it will be of greater advan tage to have stock more widely dis tributed among "employes and the public. DAILY METEOROLOGICAL REPORT. PORTLAND. Oct. 6.

WHEAT SELLS ABROAD UNDER PIES HERE Recent Business Unprofita ble for Exporters. VALUES ARE OUT OF LINE Local Market Slower, With All Bids Down 1 Cent; Coarse Grains Firm Cp. Wheat bids were 1 cent lower on all grades and all deliveries at the Mer chants' . Exchange yesterday, reflecting th weaker feeling in the market. The demand waa leas than it has been and the volume of business was small. The latest sales as cabled from abroad of full and part cargoes show lossea to shippers here In comparison with ruling market prices at this end. A cargo that was cleared from Portland on September ia was sold at equal to $1.05 here and another cargo of early October loading bicught $1.05. A parcel of white wheat v.as sold at Liverpool on September 29 at $1.08 spot and another parcel sold on September 28 brought $1.05 net. In view of the unprofitable relation between the prices that can be realized abroad and what wheat is bringing on tbe market here, there is no incentive to push new business. A number of inquiries have been re ceived from the orient for flour and some sales have been made, but the volume of actual business is small In compari son with the inquiries, as the prices gen erally Indicated are too low. The coarse grain market was firmer and lighter. All grades of eastern oats advanced B0 cents and barley was B0c$l higher. Corn bids were 25 50c higher. The Chicago wire to the Gray -Rose n baum Grain company follows: "Wheat reaction due simply to largely increased selling on profit taking. Pri mary receipts moderate, smaller than last week and last year. Milling demand good. Export demand nearby shipment. but difficult account transportation con ditions. Evidence continued accumulation on breaks by strong interests. Believe higher prices in prospect." At Liverpool, December wheat closed d higher at 9s 7d, March d higher at 9s 5d and May d lower at 9s 2d. Broomhall's cable from Liverpool said: 'There is a firm tone in wheat in the United Kingdom, owing to the scarcity of shippers' offers. Corn situa tion remains firm with offerings of both American and Plate sorts in nearby positions firmly held. The demand for parcels afloat lor quick shipment has boen fairly active recently. Export sit uation: Shorts covering on old contracts are purchasing whatever quantities avail able In nearby positions at anywhere near reasonable prices. "Our, Argentine agent after careful in vestigation indicates an exportable sur plus of new wheat at 148,000,000 bushels versus 129,000,000 bushels his estimate fcr last year as compared with the final o'ficial estimate of 93.000.000 bushels Ar gentina has shipped since January 1, 1S22, 124,337,000 bushels wheat. Ship ments this week Wheat. 1,248,000 bush els; corn, 5,050,000 bushels; oats, 497, OOj bushels.

MMKEIS I GMIR ARE OVERBOUGHT Condition Revealed by At tempt to Accept Profits. CHICAGO PRICES DROP Lack of Aggressive Purchasing - Is Feature; Liverpool Spot and Futures Higher. BY CHARLES D. MICHAELS. (By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.) CHICAGO, Oct. 6. An overbought condition was disclosed in the grain markets when local and commission houses tried to accept profits. Whils Liverpool spot wheat and futures were .higher and the political news was of a more warlike character, local prices de ciined readily. Lack of aggressive buy ing was the feature. Wheat closed c lower, corn off 3c and rye S Tic, while oats finished H i hc higher. Opening prices on wheat here were as much as 1c higher, December leading. Further early buying of December and selling of May was in e vine nee, nar rowing the difference to lfcc at one time. The finish, however, found the nearby delivery 2c under the May, com pared with ISc the previous day. Scarlty of spot wheat abroad con tinues. Liverpool was up 2 3c, while futures were 4 d higher on the nearby months. Liberal purchases to arrive in the Canadian northwest had a de pressing effect on Winnipeg. That fin ished fac to c lower, although ex porters were good buyers. Some rain was reported during the day in Illinois and Iowa. That will relieve the droughty condition. Export demand was slow, ex cept from shorts. No. 2 red winter on track sold at 10c over December, gain ing for the day. Corn showed a heavy undertone from the start. ACho time were prices above the finish of the previous day. The fin ish was on a strong rally from the in side figures. There was some reinstat ing ot lines, sold out by local traders early. Cash demand continues fair with sales of 150,000 bushels to exporters. Premiums on spot were 4 fcc. lower, receipts, 336 cars. No change of im portance was noted in the car shortage situation. m m m Oats had range of to Sc. There was considerable early selling of Decem ber and buying of May. That trading widened the difference to lc. The fin ish was lc under. Weakness in cash premiums, which were off He, had s depressing effect on the Decmber. Do mestic cash demand showed improve ment with sales of 370,000 bushels and exporters took 70,000 bushels. Receipts 91 cars. Weakness in wheat was the main de pressing influence in rye. There was fair buying here against sales in Winni peg by spreaders. A sale of 200,000 bushels was made here to exporters. No. 2 on track -sold at llfcc more than December. The two northwestern mar kets received 161 cars. The grain trade tonight was bearish on wheat and generally bullish on corn and oats. All recognized the fact that grains are largely a transportation problem. mm A good many local traders, who bought corn freely on Thursday, and were bull ish at heart "sold out today. They said the advance had driven In the short in terest and new buying support was not strong enough to keep up values. They took profits. "Canadian farmers are selling an aver age of 4.000.000 bushels of wheat daily. Interior elevators there are shipping an average of 2,000,000 bushels." said S. C. Harris of Crossroy and Saunders. A large number of the local operators unloaded their wheat early, saying there was no outside support. Large buying by large commission houses, and covering by several big local shorts, late in the day made the closing rally. - Winter wheat seeding has been on s dry seed bed and is in good condition to germinate with good rains which were reported in Illinois and Indiana today. The Chicago grain letter received yes terday by the Overbeck & Cooke com pany of Portland follows: Wheat Started strong and higher on the advance In Liverpool and warlike news from Constantinople, but met too much selling by longs and went to a discount under last night's final figures. Sentiment locally was rather bearish due more to the failure of outside support to come into the market than to any Im portant change in conditions. There was a good milling demand for cash whej.t here and in outside markets and I spot prices generally were higher. The I seaboard reported a good demand for I wheat for prompt shipment, but busi ness restricted by the indisposition or exports to make t offerings. Judging from the characterf the news coming from abroad there Is considerable anxi ety over supplies and under such condi tions prices are not apt to decline. Corn Liquidation came into the mar ket early in the session and proved more than could be digested, except at price concessions, further selling was influenced later in the day by an easier turn In the cash market where premiums were quoted H to cent lower. Ship. pers reported the export demand, which has been exceptionally good of late, less in evidence toda. Country offerings to arrive were light and cash handlers gen erally were of the' opinion thst the movement from the interior la nearing an end. We believe., today's setback is simply a. natural reaction in a bull mar ket, such as should be taken advantage of to make purchases. Oats Followed, the action of other grains with liquidation in December a .At,,H Dni-ainlu ..r, email but the demand was less urgent man ot late, Premiums were reduced Vi to 4 m.i We doubt that the futures will decline much if any from present levels, unless the cash market develops greater weak ness than now apparent. Rye Futures were dull and draggy with an absence of Important speculative interest and continued hedging by the northwest. Cash rye was relatively steady at half cent over December for No. 2 on track. t Leading futures ranged as follows: WHEAT. Dec 107S $1.08 May l.OH'i 1.09'i July l.UL' CORN.
