THE SUNDAY. OBEGONIAN, POBTLASp, NOVEMBER 10, 1901.
COMMERCIAL AND FINANCIAL NEWS
The mcst prominent change In the mar
ket last -week -was the steady advance
In the price of wheat. Sales were heavy
eaet of, the mountains, and there was a
large movement of the grain to tidewater.
General business did not seem so active
as the week before, but it had large vol
ume, as bank clearings testify. Shipment.
of merchandise to country districts has
Yesterday Eastern lard and hams de
clined, the former Je and the latter c.
local brands fell In price In proportion.
Values of onions advanced In the course
of the week. The greater part of the
crop Is In the hands of speculators, and
they appear to have made a good Invest
ment. Potatoes have been easier In sup-
ply, although firm In price, and a decline
Is not probable. Dressed meats have
Mutton has advanced c on account of
scarcity of supply. Receipts from East,
ern Oregon have fallen off . considerably.
Poultry reached very low prices yester
day. All dealers were overstocked, ano"
put quotations low to free themselves for
Sunday. Chickens especially were de
pressed. Turkeys have been . coming in
faster xhan the market could absorb
them. Eggs advanced to 30c In the course
of the week, where they maintained them
. selves firmly. The high price has mado
sales a little 3lower, but has not weak,
ened the product. Butter threatened to
decline all week, but Improved a little
yesterday so as to give current quota
tions encouragement. Cheese has ruled
firm. Young America being short. Gro
ceries have for the most part been un
changed. Hops have been less active In
the past few days. Some sales are stilt
reported at lO&QlOc for best grade, but
S10o seem to be the ruling figures. Or
ders are pretty well filled now, and this
Is given as the cause of the lull, a he
following Is from the New York Journal
of Commerce of October 4:
There is nothing particularly interest
ing in the situation at present. Brewers
still keep out of the market, or, if they
buy at all. It Is in a hand-to-mouth way.
The country markets also appear to be
exceptionally quiet for the season, and
growers show increasing willingness to
meet. The "Waterville Times of the 28th
has the following: "A good many grow
ers seem ready to sell, Judging by the
number of them in the. different hop of
fices with samples. Sales are made every
day at 12c to 13c, according to quality.
Edward Barton sold 0 bales this week at
12c, Poter Foley 35 at 1214c. Mr. Davis
25 at 12c, and Martin Manlon 15 at 12e.
Sales reported last Friday were the fol
lowing at 12c to 13c: George Allen, 131
bales; Peter "Welch, 46: Patrick Halllgan,
42; Patrick Rider, 30; William Hatheway,
75, and Michael Horan, 12. Adon Miller
sold 75 bales of 1900 hops at a little less
than 10c. William Smith got 13c for 57
Prunes have shown no Improvement.
Oats and barley remain firm, and re
ceipts of the former have increased.
WHEAT The Saturday wheat market Is
never remarkable for its strength, but
that of yesterday had a good, " healthy
tone that kept prices steady in the local
field, and, with reasonably stiff compe
tition, the figures were pushed up to 57i
for Walla Walla and about a cent better
for bluestem. Valley was inclined to -trail,
and about 5767$c was the ruling figure.
Freights are very firmly held, buf there
Is a possibility that owners are trying
to get hold of the Hop's share of ,thea.d
vance In wheat, and exporters are mak
ing an effort to prevent it by holding off.
The selling movement has been suffi
ciently free to enable all tonnage en
gagements to be met quite readily, and
some exporters have their ships provided
foras far ahead as January and February.
The crop has moved much quicker this
year than at any time for the past three
years, and this fact has been the means
of giving freights strength to which tuey
would not otherwise be entitled. World
wide conditions have pot changed suffi
ciently to warrant an advance In freights
at the present time, but the local condl
tlons are such that tonnage Is needed, and
i .. snipow:.crp .c
In the wheat market nearly as much as
the farmers. The Oriental flour trade Is
In a fairly good condition, and this keeps
the mills In the market for .wheat at full
figures, whioh, however, could not be
maintained unless the export trade was
brisk. Eastern and foreign markets have
a good, strong undertone, and, unless the
Argentine crop improves quite rapidly in
the near future, the outlook seems favor
able for a continuation of present prices,
with perhaps some Improvement

Chicago Grain and Provisions-.
CHICAGO, Nov. 9. Wheat had a good
business both on the early decline result
ing from weak cables nd on the later
bulg. December opened Hc down, at
7254735sc, and December continued, mod
erate; realizing eased the market to
72?72&c. Commission-houses were buy
ers, however, and on the cash demand
and reports of continued drouth in the
Southwest shorts became nervous and
covered. This became a bulge, though
a small one, and December sold at 73
73c, closing' steady, c up, at 73c.
Corn was dull and small Interest mani
fested and unimportant trading. Decem
ber closed 34c up, at 59G9.
Oats were quiet with a smaller trade
today than for several' days past. De
cember closed steady, a s"hade Higher, at
Provisions had a dull, but steady mar
ket. January pork closed 5o up, January
lard 7&c advanced, and ribs 2c higher.
The leading futures ranged as follows:

hy gold exports and. tho movement of
money There is an-csHm&fed net loss to
the banks-of only $S74,00O.
The hanks gained $3,G61,G00 through
bond payments, and new gold disburse
ments In assay office checks, less transfers
of money to the West end to the South.
The banks lost to the Treasury $2,745,500
through the excess of receipts by that of
fice for customs, internal revenue, etc,
overpayments on ordinary business, leaving-
as the net gains to the banks from
the Subtreasury $2,815,700. The banks lost
through exports of gold $2,758,700', and
through the direct Interior movement, less
transfers, $631,000, making together $3,383,
700. Hence the otal loss to the hanks
was $574,000. It Is noteworthy that exports
of gold were only- $12,000 more than the
week's surplus revenues of tho Subtreas
ury. a he bank statement showed & loss
of $3,703,700 In cash. The discrepancy
between this amount and that estimated
doubtless arises from the fact that consid
erable sums which were paid for bonds
were distributed to institutions other than
banks; also that the bank average system
is to a. great extent responsible for the
Loans decreased $4,927,00, indicating
liquidation of exchange loan contracts, and
deposits were diminished by $7,643,300, or
about $1,000,000 less than tho loss of loans
and of cash. The surplus reserve was re
duced $1,702,785, now standing at $8,033,925.
The statement of the associated banks
for the week ending today shows;
Loans, $SSW5,000; decrease, $4,927,900.

Borden I Believed to Be Trying t9
Bear the Market.
FALL RiyER, Mass., Nov. 9. M. C. D.
Borden, through his local representatives
Is offering, to sell goods to anyone who
will buy them at 215-16 cents a yard. All
the brokers In this city have been given
a chance to purchase and It is understood
that the same opportunity has been given
to printers In New York and Philadelphia.
The goods which are now placed upon the
market at reduced prices are the con
tracts which the American Printing Com
pany has made during the last few weeks
and as many of them Were made at 3 to
31-3 cents the moVe is- considered as an
attempt to bear the market.
NEW YORK, Nov.l-M. CD. Borden has
been Interviewed regarding his action in
reducing wages 10 net cent at hl VaU
River Iron Company mills, and thus plac
ing his print cloth factories In Massa
chusetts more nearly on a basis with
those controlled by the members of the
Fall River Association. In explaining the
motives which Induced him to order th
reduction In wages, Mr. Borden said:
"I am perfectly satisfied with the situ
ation. My action in reducing wages Is no
backdown; it simply means that I will pay
no higher than market price for any
thing I buy, be it labor or anything else.
"The fact remains that when I took up
print cloths thei, price wag 2 3-8 cents, and
now It Is 3 cents on the other manufactur
ers' own showing, and It could have been
higher had other manufacturers shown
any disposition ta secure that end. I am
nof going to shoulder the entire print
market, however; if they think bo, they
are mistaken. I will pay no more for
what I buy than other people, and I can
sell as low as any of them."
