Aztec Sails in July for Port of
Portland With Initial
FOUR VESSELS IN FLEET
Bates & Chesebroujrli Rehind Venture
and Latter Will Keacli This City
Tomorrow to Confer With
WUh the steamer Aztec sailing in
July as the pioneer of the fleet, Bates
& Chesebrough, of San Francisco, wJU
Inaugurate a through service to Port
land and San Francisco from New York
tnd Philadelphia in opposition to the
American-Hawaiian Steamship Com
pany. A. Chesebrough, a member of
the firm, will reach here tomorrow to
tirranga for the initial cargo, 3000 tons
of which has been listed.
It is the expectation of the new line
executives to establish a service that
will keep four vessels operating, giv
ing the port one sailing every 45 days,
and the voyage from the Atlantic har
bors to the Columbia River, via the
Straits of Magellan will occupy CO
days. That sufficient business can be
(secured to warrant the craft calling
only at Portland is the belief of the
owners, and they will inaugurate the
through service as soon as practical.
Aztec Carries 5000 Tons.
The Aztec will carry fiOOO tons, and
with the amount of local shipments
originating on the Atlantic seaboard
and territoKj- tributary that will be
benefited by the water rate, which Is
but 60 per cent of the rail tariff, it is
expected she will have a full cargo on
her initial voyage.
Bates & Chesebrough operate 1 2
steamers between the Bay City and
Atlantic harbors, and for some time
have enjoyed a lucrative business, but
thoy have quietly circulated their de
sire to include this port on their itiner
ary, and after sufficient space was re
nerved to warrant the Aztec being dis
patched, they decided to publicly an
nounce their purpose.
One feature of the service, which
forecasts that they propose to enter
. into keen competition with the Ameri-can-Hawaiian
interests. Is a minimum
insurance rate, which. they declare,
will provide for cargo being landed
here, with slight interest added, at
n lower tariff than Is now enjoyed,
and that they do not increase their
' rate in keeping with rail advances.
Through limiting Advantageous.
Besides, It is argued, the fact cargo
is loaded on the Atlantic and is not
again disturbed until its destination
is reached, is another favorable point,
as against the system of the opposi
tion line in .transshipping at the Bay
City. As many frail packages are
shipped, including enameled ware in
the form of bathtubs and such com
modities, the through shipment idea
is expected to be one of the strong
bids for patronage.
Support is expected from the trans
portation committee of the Chamber
of ComWrce, and it is probable that
Mr. Chesebrough will meet with its
members preparatory to soliciting from
local shippers a share of their busi
ness. Portland- dealers have routed large
quantities of cargo via the carriers now
in service, as there originates .in the East
hardware, woodc-nware. wagon materials,
spokes, hubs, cordage, nails, tanned
goods, machinery, agricultural supplies,
structural iron, paper, wire, belting, white
lead, paints, bolts, castings and. in fact,
SO per cent of the commodities covered
by the rail tariffs.
While definite dockage arrangements
have not been made it is probable that
the company will establish its berth at
Albers Dock, now used by the American
Hawaiian, because it is centrally located
In the district to which is consigned
heavy machinery and other bulky cargo.
BKAIt CARIUES KKCOKD LOAD
Cargo Largest Since Congestion of
Four Years Ago.
Xot since the steamer Aztec was char
tered by the. San Francisco & Portland
Steamship Company in the Summer of
1!)06, to -move congested freight south has
a cargo for the Bay City been cleared
such as is piled beneath the hatchea of
the steamer Bear, of that line, which
palled yesterday morning with a total
of 2143 tons.
The Aztec's cargo measured 3S00 tons
and was dispatched under exceptional
conditions, while that of the Bear in
dicates a natural ircrease in offerings
that is expected to be continued during
the season to a large extent. Her mani
fest shows it was made up of flour, po
tatoes, paper and smaller packages Her
passenger list was also increased, as she
had 200 reservations' occupied. General
Agent Iianeom yesterday said that he ex
pected the- Beaver to arrive June 11.

TURNING OVER TO JOBBERS
California Fruit Packers Have De
cided to Send Out a Koree of
Salesmen- According to
the Latest Keport.
With the announcement of the .opening
pi-Ices on 1910 pack California fruits comes
the story that some of the large packers,
following the example set by Maine corn
canners and other large producers! have de
cided to send out a foroe of salesmen to the
retail trade. These salesmen, it is under
stood, will work up all the business posijHjie
and turn It over to Jobbers in the territory
in which they are working, 'thus doing away
with services of brokers. The only return
for such activity the packers expect aside
from the business it will bring for the time
being, so the story goes. Is to make their
brands so well and favorably known In the,
territory covered by their salesmen that
both retailers and Jobbers will hereafter car
ry them to the exclusion of other brands
that are not so well exploited. Work along
these lines was started late last season in a
small way by means of demonstrators.
The prices named on the 19lO pack by the
California Fruit Canners' Association show
advances over those of last year, as follows:

WHEAT PRICES STEADY, TRADE DILI.
Some Dealers Kind Kncouraeement in the
The local grain market yesterday, as usual
on Saturday. Was a very quiet affair. There
were neither buyers nor sellers In evidence,
and the dealers found no occasion to quote
prices different from those of the preceding
day. In fact prices In all departments v.er
entirely nominal. -
Aside from the spectacular break in May.
the Chicago market was fairly steady. The
new crop months opened close to Friday's
final figures, and at the close were down He
to lUc. At Liverpool May wheat dropped
V d. but the later options made gains, the
first advances to be recorded In a fortnight.
July wheat rising a and October d at
the close. The cargo market continued dull
Another event which some traders re
garded as an encouraging sign that the
downward course of prices has been checked
was the decrease in the movement Of wheat
from Russia, though it will require some
time to determine whether this falling off
is permanent or merely a fluctuation. The
shipments for the past week from Russia
and Danublan ports were reported by the
Merchants Exchange as follows:

BEER SALES CONTINUE TO INCREASE.
Gain in April Over Same Month Last Vear
Was Half a Million Harrrls.
Beer sales In the month of April showed
a larg.3 Increase over the same month last
year. The total sales were 5,010,8:5 bar
rels, or a gain of 500,706 barrels over the
sales of April. 1909. For the first four
months of the present year the official
Government figures show an Increase of
1,596.921 barrels over the corresponding
period of 1909.
It Is useless to make any further com
ment on the condition of the hop market
in this connection, as it has become a
standing Joke in the hop. trade that the
faster the beer business grows the lower
the hop market falls. However. If the
brewery trade continues to expand at the
same rate throughout the remainder of the
season It will mean that the consumption
of hops In the United Stat-as this year
will be 20,000 bales larger than it was last
STRAWBERRIES SELL 10 CENTS HIGHER
Demand for Other Fruit Is Light Veg
etables Clean Cp.
Except for the good demand for straw
berries, there was not much activity in the
fruit market yesterday. Berries sold on
the farmers' market about 10 cents higher
than on Friday, and shipping stock was
unchanged on the street. The neceipta as
a whole were large and were entirely cleaned
There were fair shipments of loganberries;
raspberries and blackberries, all of which
were quoted at $1.25 a crate. Several small
lots of cantaloupes were received and sold
well at $5 to 3 a crate for ponies. Apri
cots dragged. Cherries were also slow sale.
There was a good clean-up In most lines
of vegetables, tomatoes especially being
scarce. Peas and beans sold at former
prices. Summer squash was harder to move.
There was a good demand for new potatoes
but old potatoes were not wanted.
NO SURPLUS OF BUTTER THESE DAYS.
Local Market Is Very Strong, but There Is
No Talk of an Early Advance.
The local butter market Is in a very
strong position, the local and shipping de
mand absorbing all the offerings and call
ing for more. However, there Is no talk
of any advance in prices, as it is not cer
tain that the Northern shipping demand
will be long maintained.
The advance of half a cent a pound on
all sizes of cheese Monday morning will be
The demand for poultry yesterday was
sufficient to take up all the receipts at
the prices that have prevailed throughout
the week. Dressed meats also closed un
changed. There was the regular inquiry for eggs,
and as receipts were not large, the market
held very steady.

HIT AT CHICAGO.
Xew-Crop Months Close Steady.
Weather Is Favorable In All
Parts of the Country.
CHICAGO. May 28. The lowest prices of
the season were made in wheat today. A
little group of tallenders gave up the "fight
for the May option and sold out in driblets
all the way down to 90c, a sheer drop of
.6 Vic from last nlsht's figures. Because of
poor buying support, new crop futures fin
ished He to llilHc down. Corn closed
AC to 17c off and oats I to lc. Last
quotations for provisions were unchanged to
Disinclination to stand out over two days
at the new low levels had much to do with
the remarkable lack of vitality in the wheat
market. Then. too. fine rains all over th
Canadian Northwest and the Dakotas. fur
ther showers for final filling of the Winter
wheat Southwest and a general warming up
of temperatures were far from encouraging
any symptom of bullishness. An official
call for more harvest hands than were re
quired last year in Kansas 'was also out of
line with short crop prophecies. The North
west reported country Bales of wheat very
liberal and the elevators hedging purchases.
About the only Important item of the day
from a bull standpoint was the sale of
600.000 bushels of cash wheat here. One
local milling concern bought 250.OOO bush
els if this total. Foreigners covered some
short wheat here today. For new crop fu
tures, the close was fairly steady, with Sep
tember showing a net loss of vs c. Tho
range for that option was from 91 c to 3c
and the last price was 91(lr91c. May
closed at the bottom figure. Hue.
Corn was weak. Cash Interests were free
sellers of the nearby deliveries in particular.
September ranged from o7 c to &sc and
closed c down at 57c. The cash market
also was weak. No 2 yellow closed at 57 Vi
In May oats there was general liquidation
by longs with the most pressure on Septem
ber. That month fluctuated between 35,c
and 30Vi (i.Kiiic, closing with lyly,c loss
at 3.i j 3.-c.
Although provisions were higher early on
the lighter run of hogs here and West,
weakness In the grain list and some- conse
quent realizing by longs caused an easing
off later. Pork at the close was 20g,27tc
lower; lard. 5(g'7I4c higher and ribs un
changed to 2Vic lower.
