THE SUNDAY OREGOXIAX, PORTLAND, MAT 17, 1908.
Outcome in Eastern Oregon Is
TALK OF VERY LOW PRICES
Public Sales May Xot Be as Success
ful as in Former Years Little
Interest Shown In Valley Clip.
Trading in the East.
The wool season has been anything
but satisfactory to date. There is a
fair movement in Valley wools, but the
market is without enap. As most of
the Valley clips are small, the growers
are not vitally interested in prices as
they are in Eastern Oregon, and hav
ing their other crops to depend on, are
generally willing to accept the low
prices offered for Valley wools, which
range from 10c to 12
In Eastern Oregon it is different. The
annual clip is the mainstay of maoy
of the stockmen, and the low prices
talked of by buyers are certainly dis
couraging. While the growers expect
ed values to be somewhat under those
of last season, the sharp reduction in
prices mentioned by the Eastern deal
ers the sheepmen regard as extreme.
What the outcome will be at the pub
lic eales remains to be seen. It is the
belief of many members of the trade
that the auction sales will not be a
success, but that the bulk of the wools
will be withdrawn. . A considerable
portion of the clip may be consigned.
Dan P. Smythe, secretary of the Ore
gon Wool growers' Association, who
was In Baker City a few days ago,
told the Herald that the Oregon clip
this year would be heavier and of a
better quality than the clipe of previ
ous years, .Last year was a banner
year for sheep and wool, the prices
being the highest that have been
known for several years. The growers
this year will not receive as much for
their product as they did last year,
but they will get a good price, never
theless, according to Mr. Smythe. The
surplus sheep are being sold very
slowly this year, but the state is not
overstocked, because all the surplus
was disposed of last year at high
Eastern buyers -are on hand In all the
Western wool centers, but they are
acting very cautiously regarding the
acquisition of the new clip. Only about
4.000,000 pounds have been moved out
of Utah, according to latest estimates,
and a good part of this is destined for
the St. Louis market. A few purchases
of medium clips have been made at
,13 46c but mexst of the recorded sales
have been at 10c to 11 c.
The Williams clip of Nevada, upward
of 300.000 pounds, has been bought by
a prominent Boston firm at 12c, the
scoured landed cost being placed at 45c.
The hulk of the Nevada clip has been
iuove,d on consignment. The same is
true, of Texas and California.
The season lias not staited in Mon
tana, but about half the clip of Wyom
. Ing is reported shorn. Nothing of im
portance has been sold there, so far
as can be learned.. Three Wyoming
clips are reported consigned.
Stocks of old Oregon wool in the
East are light. Mail advices from Bos
ton report the sale In the past week
Of 25 000 nminris half-Hi.-.,
scoured baste of 47c. Of scoured wool
sold. 128 bales went at 54c. In old
territory wools, a somewhat larger
business has been done, mostly in small
lots of J5.000 to &0.000 pounds each. A
few transfers around 100,000 pounds
each were made public. One mill
bought about 600,000 pounds in all.
There Is no speculation of any kind.
Manufacturers refuse to commit them
selves on future probable necessities.
The goods outlook is too uncertain.
The Boston market for good fine
clothing was quoted on the scoured
basis of 50c to 52c, and for fine me
dium at 45c to 48c Among the trans
fers of the week were 100.000 pounds
choice tine on the scoured basis of 55c
to 5Tc; 200,000 pounds fine and fine me.
ilium, in the original bags, at 50c;
100.000 pounds graded fine medium at
4Sc; 90,000 pounds half-b!ood Montana
at 50c and 50,000 pounds . half-blood
Idaho at 4S to !i0i Fine Montana has
sold at llc in the greae, to cost

OPENING PRICES ON ASPARAGUS
Sharp Red act Ion From the Quotat Ions of
Opening prices on asparagus have
been made by all the California pack-'
ers, and the figures quoted are consid
erably lower than those of last year,
while more in keeping with the prices
of 1906. Values were exceedingly high
last season,- owing to the short crop.
This year California has a full crop
of asparagus, and as business condi
tions are also changed, a more rea
sonable level of values was found nec
essary. -The reduction in prices as
compared with those of 1907 follows:

HOPS STRONG WITH GOOD INQUIRY
Effect of Unfavorable Weather Shown in
Many Yards. v
The tone of the hop market continues
decidedly firm, with a steady inquiry on
export account. . Among the transactions
reported yesterday was the purchase of
the I. L. Smith lot of 81 bales, at Inde
pendence, by Ernest Wells, for the E; C.
Horst Company. The price paid was 6
cents. Kola' Neis also paid 6 cents for
a lot and bought another crop at 64
cents. H. L. Hart, on Friday and Sat
urday, bought 310 bales at prices ranging
from 41 to 5 cents.
Reports from many sections of the
Valley are to the effect that the crop is.
not making good progress, but this is to
be expected, considering the weather that
has prevailed this month. Lost ground
is easily recovered In hopgrowing, and the
sickly looking yards may yet turn out

PORTLAND LIVESTOCK MARKET.
Prices) Quoted Locally on Cattle, Sheep and

very weak and mixed lots declined 25 cents.
Lamb prices were also shaded. Receipts

PUSHING UP STOCKS
Campaign for Higher Prices Is
MARKET A BROAD ONE
Union Pacific Ieads in the Advance,
Stimulated by the Hopeful Ctter
erances of Harriman, Regard
ing the Business Prospects. '
NEW YORK, May 16. Operations to
advance prices of stocks or. to protect the
prices against . operations calculated to
depress them were aggressively renamed
today, and as the result the average price
level touched the highest thus far reached
on the movement. The movement was
broad and animated, and the general
strength of tone was not materially at
fected by the large realizing of profits
which was accomplished 'by shifting the
buying from one to another quarter of the
list for sustaining effect,
The strongest and most active stock was
Union Pacific, and the demonstrative rise
in this stock was the immediate outcome
of published utterances by the head of
the system containing very positive
opinions on the prosperous outlook for
business. The chairman of th Great
Northern Board was credited also with
cheerful expressions, regarding more espe
ciallv the croo prospects.
These publications were the fomenting
cause of the renewed outburst of specula
tive activity in the markdt and of buoyant
advances in prices in many quarters of
There was no news of specific develop
ments bearing on the market. Additional
engagements of gold for shipment to
Berlin next week 'were accepted wnn
equanimity, in view of the unaffected
ease maintained in our own money
market. Additions to the new financing
effected are announced from day to day,
evidencing the working out of the
problems left over from the sudden pros
tration of credit which overcame the
country last Fall.
The bank statement showed the growing
effect of financing of various sorts In an
expansion in the loan item, which while
moderate in the average showing, carried
the total of that item to a figure greater
than has ever before been reached in the
history of the clearing-house. The propor
tion of the cash reserve stands, however,
at about 30 per cent and the percentage of
legal reserve held by all the institutions
reporting is now 32.30 per cent.
Bonds were firm and active.. Total sales,
par value $3,210,000.

a slight decrease in their surplus re
serves. The statement of actual condi

91,024,600 in holding's of specie and
But when this fact is taken into con

of gold amounting to $6,750,000 and the
payment by the banks Into the treas
ury through the withdrawal of public
deposits of an amount approximating
$5,500,000, it will be seen that the clearing-house
institutions almost made up
the loss through the excess of receipt
from the Interior and current opera
tions with the Treasury. "
As a result of the week's changes, a
decrease of $3,111,500 was reported in
surplus reserves, which, taking the
statement of actual conditions as being
nearer correct, makes the present sur
plus reserve of the New York Clear-ing-House
The statement of averages of the
clearing-house banks for the week
shows that the banks hold $64,607,250
more than the .requirements of the 25
