THE SUNDAY OEEGOXIAX, PORTLAND, OCTOBER 31Y 1915.
Market Has Distinctly Upward
NET RETURNS ARE LARGER
London Cables Reiort Sales of
Yakima Jonathans at Good Fig
ures New England and
Southern Demand Active.
' The apple market Is steadily gainim in
strength, and while no further advance waa
announced in the latter part of the week,
the coune of price is distinctly strong. The
trade la await to the fact that It will haTe
to ret busy In order to secure Winter sup
plies. Early In the season buyers held
back, influenced by the belief that the
American crop would be larger than 1t has
actually proved to be. The total yield, ac
cording to the latest reports, will be about
the same as that of 1913, though some au
thorities Insist it will be materially short
of that year.
That prices are on a satisfactory basis is
shown by the returns made on North Pacific
Fruit Distributors sales of Yakima Valley
apples for the season to date, which are $1.55
to $1.70 for Arkansas Blacks. Spitaenbergs
and Delicious; $1.10 to $1.25 for Rome
lieauty and $1.30 to $1.40 for Wlnesapa and
The trade ts already taking storage Jona
thans in the Distributors' hands at the re
cent advance. These apples were put away
to make use of the storage plant. The pol
icy adopted this season of effecting the
widest distribution possible has enabled the
Distributors to clean up practically all the
remainder. The great effort this year has
been to side-step the large markets and get
Into the smaller ones.
The Texas trade is still fairly good, with
increasing strength, and. more markets are
calling for Northwestern fruit. The Boston
lemand has been unusually good, and ad
ditional markets are being developed in
New England territory. The Middle West
Is gradually coming into line and a number
of Iowa markets, which were not in the
field two or three weeks ago, are now try
ing to buy stock.
The local apple market continues quiet,
and California is slow on Northwestern fruit,
owing to the large supply of Watsonville
apples on hand.
According to cables Just received from
London, Yakima Jonathans sold there at
92.75 to $3 a box, with the freight at about
$1. Even with the high transportation
charges, war risk. Insurance and other ex
Tenses, the net returns have proved to be
healthy In every respect. Both grades of
fancy and extra fancy Jonathans net $1.5
at shipping points, which is higher than the
domestic trade paid at any time this sea
son. Prospects are that box apple exports will
be less than for a number of seasons on ac
count of the short crop and the satisfac
tory home demand. About the only variety
to be shipped In volume, if space is avail
able, will be Newtowns. These have not
developed strength in Kuropo yet.
.REACTION IN LOCAL. WHEAT MARKET
I'rices Fall Back After Friday's Advance.
October Figures Favorable.
There was no sign in the local wheat
market yesterday of the bullishness that
was displayed on Friday, and pricaa were
readjusted at a Generally lower level. Spot
blues teln bids were reduced 3 cents and
forty-fold 4 i-entB, as compared with the
preceding. There were , no sales on the
board and the country markets were also
r ported inactive.
October statistics, however, show the
month to have been much more active on
the Exchange than the corresponding month
last year. Total sales in October, 1915, were
140,000 bushels of wheat and SH) tons of
oats of an aggregate value of $153,200. In
October, 1014, the sales were 45,000 bushels
of wheat, 700 tons of oats and 250 tons of
mill feed, of a total value of 71,250.
Wheat Is coming out of the country at a
better rate than in the early months of the
season, although the total arrivals for the
cereal year to date have been 1S2S cars
less than In the same period last year.
October arrivals were 375 cars more than
in the same month of 1014. Monthly re

Fine weather, that implied larger re

Foreign advices, however, acted as some
thing of an offset.
Oats gave way a trifle with corn and
wheat. Export transactions at the sea

provision market as a whole after an early

In the United Kingdom the weather has
been generally fine, and in the North the
harvest has made excellent progress. In
many districts the grain is not threshing
quite so well as was expected, as, owing to
the slow growth In mid-Summer, the heads
did not get properly filled.
In France the weather Is overcast, with
some rain, but more is needed in order to
admit of Autumn cultivation, which is be
ing delayed, both plowing and sowing be
ing difficult, owing to the srll being dry
and hard. The delay to cultivation, how
ever, is not considered serious. The dry
weather has enabled farmers to devote more
time to threshing. The results have not im
proved, but northern departments, vrhich
produce the bulk of the grain, are much
more satisfactory than the southern.
In Spain, plowing and mowing operations
are in full swing, and although some showers
have fallen, more moisture is requisite for
Autumn cultivation ana the satisfactory ger
mination of the seed now being sown.
In Russia the lack of labor has delaved
the harvest, and the intensely hot weather
Just before the cutting period had an ad
verjse effect, Spring and hard wheats suffer

fairly up to the average the quantity will
be under. In the aggregate. Winter wheat Is
good, and threshing operations are being
pusaed forward with all dispatch. - In some
districts, however, the eather has been
warm and showery, while In others more or
less copious rain was reported, which in
terrupted the carting of the grain.
In the Unner Volsa resrion the harvest
ing of Winter and Spring wheat has made
rapid progress, and Autumn field work is
being taken in hand. In the Lower Volga
districts the harvest is better than last year,
official estimates giving a total yield of
113.440.000 qrs., against 85.700,000 in 1U14.
uonstantine, jsortn Africa, aa vices state
that if weather conditions are favorable
thresh in cs will be finished bf the middle of
October. Tunis reports copious rains in the
center and south, and cola, stormy weatner
in the north.
From India, private cables report good
rains in most parts of the Punjab and the
outlook In nearly the whole of India is
now fairly satisfactory, with further rain
likely in the northwest. In the United
Provinces East. Punjob Bast and North,
Central India West and Central Provinces

The position in the Australian Common

STEEL PRICES RISING
QUOTATIONS ADVANCED TO CHECK
HEAVY NEW DEMANDS.
Current Wire Business Is Largest on
Record Purchases of Railway '
Equipment Steadily Increasing.
,Tbs.t prosperity has returned to the Iron and
steel industry is not open to question, and
Just what this means to the country at large
is now beginning to be fully appreciated.
It is obviously necessary to get the wheels
started before general business can advance
to new goals and a study of the reports from
all sections cioarly shows that the wheels
are on the right track and are moving in
the right direction, says Dun's Review.
To explain tae transition from a state of
depression to one of activity in strictly mer
cantile lines it is not necessary to look be
yond the iron and steel trade, although ag
ricultural success is a contributing factor
of no little weight. But in the final analysis
it Is plainly the steady increase In the pro
ductive force that furnishes the means for
expanding consumptive requirements and
thousands of men who were earning com
paratively little, if anything, a few months
ago. are now receiving full pay envelopes
every week. Hence, it Is really the boom
in iron and steel that is supplying the mo
tive nower to the wheels of progress in other
direction, while the big crops afford a
solid foundation lor tne upiut.
The fact that the tide of returning pros
perity is the direct outcome of the war does
not check the current, but It is gratifying
that the foreign demand in Iron and steel,
though sttll the dominant Influence, do not
so completely overshadow the markets as was
formerly the case. In other words, domestic
business is broadening materially i and the
railroads, af'.er a protracted period? of con
servative buying, are now playing a promi
nent part. Purchases of equipment by these
interests .are steadily enlarging and, with
European orders continuing unabated, man
ufacturers are virtually swamped with work.
For example, the wire trade le reported
to 0e more active than at any time in its
historv. and elsewhere so many contracts
have ipn hooked that deliveries are several
weeks behind. This results in premiums
being paid for prompt shipments wherever
they can be made, and, while there is no
evidence or the unaestraDie leature oi r&piu
nrin inflation, in some instances quotations
are beln raised in an effort to check the
rush of business.
Much space would be required to discuss
all of tho favorsble sides of the situation,

Reviewing local market conditions the
Livestock Reporter says:
"The cattle market is continuing steady.
Steers with the exception of heavyweight
stuff are on a good steady basis. Whil
Monday did rot bring any exceptional
prices, yet stuff seemed to sell for all It
was worth. Heavy cattle was not in de
mand as usual, light, heavy weights being
wanted in nearly all cases. She stuff isn't
coming In great quantities and It looks
as if the market for this class of stuff is a
shade stronger. Bulls sold as high as 5
cents and stage as high as five-fifty. The
feeder movement is not large; several cars
were taken out within the past lew days.
Feeder buyers are bearing down as much
as possible, seemingly unwilling to take
high-priced steens to ttve feed lot. A lot
of feeders held by a speculator moved early
In the week to Eastern Oregon.
- "Receipts of hogs at this market have
been excellent. Monday opened with about
4700, and about 1000 bead each day since
until today, owing to tne break in the
East, which was entirely expected by those
who keep In close touch with livestock con
ditions in general, a gooa many iaano snip
pers who chase butterflies lately got in
on the low spot at several eastern centers.
Those who take their chances are generally
speculators. Producers find it profitable to
nick out a market ana stick to It.
"There seems to be but barely enough
finished mutton trade coming to take care
of immediate requirements. wuauty ship
ments -have been the rule this week. The
supply in sight, present and prospective,
favors the sellers."

oussion of a proposed Income tax
caused Professor Johnson to assert his
disapproval of showing favoritism to

he said. "I would not give any pref
erence to a man who is married over a
bachelor, because I do not believe it is
a good thing to encourage matrimony
by lowering taxation."
Johnson explained that he agreed
with the theory of Thomas R. Malthus
that population has a tendency to in

SWISS INVENTORY STAPLES
Wool, Cotton and Rice to Be Valued

been formed by merchants at Basle.
The Swiss government is about to
