SOON TO BUY WHEAT
Exporters May Resume Opera
tions This Week.
GREAT AMOUNT TO MOVE
Oats and Barley Show Iilttle Effect
of the Financial Storm Strong
Demand From California
for Feed Grain.
If the Improvement In the financial and
commercial situation, which has been noticed
tvr Iho past 48 hours, continues, and there
Is no reason to believe It will not, trading
In the local- -wheat market will be resumed
before this week Is far advanced. This
eplnlon was expressed yesterday by leading
exporters and grain merchants. It is not
probable' that buying will be as free aa It
1 was before the money trouble began, ret a
considerable amount of new business is looked
for. Buyers are now settling up old con
tracts and attending to shipments and as
oon as the opportunity presents, the work of
taking over the remainder of the wheat crop
will be started. There Is no pressure to sell
wheat on the part of the farmers. Some of
the largest grain handlers estimate that only
80 per cent of the North Paciflo crop re
mains unsold, and If this figure Is correct,
It means buoy times ahead for the shippers,
KS but a comparatively small part of the
crop has been moved. Shipments from the
ycorth Paciflo porta to date amount to only
about 25 cargoes, whereas 130 vessels, steam
and sail, have already been engaged' to move
this year's wheat.
Soma trading Is under way in the oats and
Barley markets, but It is of a hand-to-mouth
character. Very little weakness has been ap
parent In these lines at any time. The bar
ley crop of the three states is closely sold
VP, and shipments to the East have continued
on a large scale.
The flour market Is very cutlet, as regards
both the domestic and export trade.
There Is an urgent demand from Califor
nia for mill feed, but the orders cannot "be
met, owing to the lightness of supplies here.
HOPttROWERS WILLING TO 6EIL.
Conditions In Foreign Markets Are Ko
There was absolutely no trading la the hop
market yesterday, so far as could be learned.
Growers are becoming inore anxious to -sell,
but dealers are not In a position to buy.
A cable received by Klaber, Wolf & Natter
from London said:
"Market is utterly, depressed and there are
no signs of Improvement ahead. The mar
ket is bad on aocount of finances. Choicest
Oregons are being offered without takers at
M shillings. In Bohemian market prices
have slightly given way."
The 50 shillings quoted Is equivalent to
12 cents In London. Less the freight, com
mission and other charges, this means 7 to
I cents for export quality In Oregon.
Tho Independence Enterprise says:
"Roth the grower and dealer realize the
futility of undertaking to make transactions
under present conditions, but they expect
fTatra to assume a more hopeful aspect soon.
Manager J. H. Dixon reports about 2500 bales
Iready passed through the warehouse and
hipped to market. Within the past few
flays nearly 800 bales -have been shipped and
for the Immediate future there will be fur
ther heavier shipments. The hops moving,
however, ars - largely contract hops and. of
course, have little bearing on the market
Situation farther than getting them out of
The hop market of Washington, according
to the Seattle Trade Register, continues bad
ly demoralized, with the growers and hold
ers of hops in a chronlo state of panic. The
Situation Is sadly In need of a .Napoleonic
master mind to organise the growers and
establish a basis that will bring about a
perfect control of the bull and the bear and
eventually eliminate them altogether. Prices
today os Washington hops are wild and the
eara, having succeeded in thoroughly fright
ening the growers, are having things their
own way and buying prime hops at 5 cents,
a dead loss to the grower of fully 3 cents per
r-ound. Even at these ruinous figures some
Washington growers appear eo thoroughly
panic-stricken that they appear eager to let
gti their holdings.
TURKEY INFORMATION IS WAJiTKO.
Bobbers Would Like to Know Something
About Supplies in Country.
Poultry dealers would bo pleased if coun
try shippers would now give them some In
formation as to the size of the turkey crop,
so they could make their calculations for the
Thanksgiving trade. From all that has been
learned tho supply will be sufficient this year.
High prices are not likely to rule in view of
the general conditions.
The street cleaned up its supply of poultry
yesterday but In order to do It some firms
had to cut chicken prices to 9 cents.
Eggs held steady at the former quotations.
There was a fair movement in butter at
last prices. Another advance of half a cent
oocurred in tho Eastern butter market yester
day. I'sual Saturday Trade la Fruits.
As Is usually the case oa Saturday, trad
ing in the fruit and vegetable line was slow.
Jobbers are much encouraged by the way thatj
-,u..uj uiuro came in, and daily shipments
continue normal. The only arrival yesterday
was a car of sweet potatoes. Ripe, bananas
were scarce and in good demand.

Bank Statement Delayed and

Three Weeks Amount to
NEW YORK. Nov. 9. The decision to
withhold the publication of the bank state
ment until after the olose of the stock
market deprived It of what is usually the
solo incentive to activity in the Saturday
short session. - The consequence was a torpid
market and an Inconsequential drift of

than was expected, the increase of $4,313.
000 comparing with an indicated decrease
of $12,000,000 as far as the known move
ments ot money could be traced. Moreover,
bank officials asserted that not more than
$5,000,000 of the $21,000,000 of receipts of
foreign gold actually figured in the state
ment. The statement is computed on a
basis of Ave days, owing to the holiday, in
stead of the usual six days, and this would
serve to magnify the changes. So far as
Incoming gold may serv to release credits
and reduce loans, the small proportion of
gold arrivals which figure in tho statement
leaves the actual result understated.. The
additional gold engagements made this
week must figure. In the same way, in ex
tension of loans subject to liquidation on
the arrival of the gold. Hows far tho new
issues of clearing-house certificates and the
transfer of loans from the trust com
panies to banks may figure in the loan item
are purely conjectural. There "was a stiff
ening of the premium paid for currency
A feature was the further large transTer
of currency to the Interior, following the
gold arrivals. The clearing-house banks
estimate that the gross shipments of cur
rency made to out-of-town points this week
amount to $21,500.000, . last week they were
$22,000,000, and the preceding week, $2J.

THE FUTURE IS BRIGHTER
FINANCIAL FORECAST BY A NEW
Industrial Reaction Will Bring Re
lief Inward Gold Slovement
In Former Years.
In their monthly forecast of financial
conditions, Harris, Winthrop St Co., of New
York, say of the financial outlook for No
vember: It has ben essentially a trust company
panic, although Its ramifications have ex
tended to every variety of financial Institu
tion. While it has brought untold uuiTer
lngr to thousands and must of necessity have
a lasting- effect, it has forced every bank
In New York to show a clean bill of health
and rid itself of all entangling alliances. In
this way the banks of the metropolis havo
been strengthened to an extent that was
scarcely thought possible a year ego when
the stock market was buoyant at noom.
prices and all the newer financial institu
tions were bidding extravagant rates or in
terest for new deposits. This panic has
taught Wall street that It takes a tralnea
banker to direct the affairs of a bank, ana
that nothing possibly can take the place
of old-fashioned conservatism In the man
agement of banking affairs.
Although the violent rise In call money
to 12," percent made It almost impossible
for "Wall street to do business toward me
end" of the month, it brought Its own re
lief in forcing the sales of wheat and cotton
that had been persistently held for-higher
prices. These staples were taken by Europe
in quantity and tended to force the price of
sterling exchange much below the gold im
port point, with the result that nearly $23.
000,000 gold was secured in Europe ana
South America for shipment to this country.
This huge export movement of grain has
now reached sufficient headway to give us
virtual command of the foreign ex cn an pew,
so that Europe will have to send us gold,
whether her bankers wish to or not.
, This inflow of foreign gold will lead to
easier monetary conditions dust as heavy
exports of the metal, by reducing the sup
ply of available funds, would ordinarily
vend to make money scarce and higher, as
soon as the November 1 dividend payments
are out of the way It is safe to assume that
call money will rule considerably below tne
15 and 25 per cent level tat obtained dur
ing most of October. The greatest relief
will come, however, as a result of the in
dustrial reaction which is bound to become
more of a factor as soon as the effects of
the violent panic find response In business
conditions. No country could live through
such a panic as we have passed througn
without reflecting some disturbance or this
If ever a market had discounted all the
bad news that could reasonably develop, the
tremendous declines of this panic would in
dicate that most of the high-grade issues
are now selling at bargain level. We expect
some very definite recovery following the
gold arrivals, but there will be no boom
movement or resumption of furious com
petitive buying. It must be remembered,
however, that Kurope Is now a buyer of our
securities and that, with the restoration of
confidence, which Is the chief problem De
fore the American people today, this for
eign support will become more of a factor.
The country Is still enormously prosper
ous; Europe Is eager to take at high prices
whatever grain and cotton we have to spare;
our foreign Indebtedness has been greatiy
reduced, so that it stands today at prob
ably half the amount that was standing
against us a year ago; ten months of al
most continuous liquidation on the stocK
market has forced down security prices to a
level ranging from 60 to 1O0 points below
the prices prevailing at this time In lwo;
the bank situation is essentially sound and
is gaining strength from day to day.
In the last week of October the banks Im
ported some ?23, 000,000 gold from Europe.
This came as the chief relief for the
troubled market and enabled the depository
Institutions to meet the enormous demands
made upon them.
The main question for the markets today
Is: How much gold will Europe let us
have? The experience of past years throws
some light on this interesting situation. In
the last quarter we have Imported the fol
lowing amounts in the years named:

ing of Corn Leads to a
Break in That Cereal.
CHICAGO. Nov. 9. After a nervous ses
sion the local wheat market closed strong;, the
December delivery showing; & net gain of l1,
6114c. Corn was off c. Oats were o
lower and provisions 2V4 to 7o higher.
The demand for wheat, which caused the
strong tone lats In the day was based chiefly
on the weekly statement of the New York
banks, which showed a more satisfactory con
dition than had been generally expected. An
Improved export demand and liberal ship
ments from here the past week helped to
strengthen the market. There was an active
rade during the last half of the session, but
the volume of business early In the day was
very light. Lower cables and & sharp break
In corn were bearish Influences that caused
weakness the first part of the day. The
market closed strong. December opened
so lower to is'S'o higher, advanced to lo
and closed at 91 lie May sold between 90 Ho
and 994c.sjnd closed at 8909e.
Liquidation caused a sharp slump of 2
cents per -bushel in the price of corn. A
large part of these sales were said to be for
the account of an Eastern trader. Prices ad
vanced about 1 cent from the low point on
buying by shorts, induced by the strength of
wheat. The close was steady. December
opened a shade lower to a shade higher at
o656TsC advancing to 6To and then de
clined to 55V&C. The close was at SSfiS WMiC.
- Oats were weak almost all day. There
was only a small volume of business. The
market was affected principally by corn. A
2 to 4-cent decline In cash oats had a weak
ening effect. December opened unchanged at
4c, sold between 466 and 47 Ho and closed
Provisions were firm on active demand by
shorts. Offerings were light throughout the
entire day. A 15-20o advance In live hogs
was a bullish factor. At the close January
