m LACK SERIOUS
Wheat Trade Stops Though
East Vants More Grain.
OHDERS IN AT RULING RATE
Market Closes Weak in Sympathy
With Decline at ChicagoOats
Are Unchanged and Bar
t ley Is Iiower.
Tne week cloned with the wheat trade of
the Northwest nearly at a standstill. There
Is demand from California and moderate
ahtpments will go forward soon, but busi
ness for Eastern or export acconnt Is al
most out of the question with the car sit
uation as It stands today.
The Inquiry from the East Is regular and
millers in that section would take wheat
at the prices now going here If they could
get it. It is not possible, however, to
rurintee a definite delivery, and even if
the car situation were relieved it Is a ques
tion it the grain could be bought In quan
tity at current rates.
The tone of the market was easier yes
terday as a consequence of the decline at
Chicago, which was brought about by
slumps In the chief Argentine markets. The
softer appearance of the English market,
according to Eroomhall's cable, was due to
less demand from millers, who had re
cently made good spot purchases at the
Merchants Exchange. Bids for bluestem
were 1 to 2 cents lower than on Friday, and
offers for other sorts were reduced 2 to 33
cents. As compared with a week ago, blue
stem and fortyfo'd are 6 to 8 cents cheap
er and declines In other kinds of wheat
ransre from S to 7 cents.
There was no change in the oats market
yesterday, but barley bids were fl lower
than the day before.

English market conditions are reported
by the Kentish Observer of October 12 as
"The English section shows a considerable
Increase of strength; a steady demand has
been maintained during the week, and
somewhat important sales have been ef
fected. The attention of buyers Is chiefly
directed to the choicer grades( values of
which have advanced, holders being dis
posed to await further developments. The
range of prices for medium to beat quali
ties may be quoted as follows: East Kents
and Worcester! 135s to 160s, Mid Kents
and Wealds 130 to 143s per cwt There
has also been an improved inquiry for the
lower grades, values now ranging from 95s
to 115s per cwt. Some lots of 1915 Pacifies
have been sold at prices ranging from 103s
to 126s per cwt. Yearling or old Belgians
are not inquired for, but small parcels have
changed hands at very moderate rates."
NAVE I, ORANGES DTTE IN A FEW DAYS
Jobbers Quoting Prices on New Crop Veg
etables Are fecarce.
New-crop navel oranges are being quoted
by dealers at $4.75 for 150s and smaller.
The first shipment will arrive by steamer
from San Francisco In a few days. Ship
pers assure fancy color and quality in the
first shipments. The recent advance of 50
cents in lemons is regarded as only tempo
rary, and the market during the coming
week will be only a quarter higher than the
old price. Banana prices are again ad
vancing at the seaboard.
Because of the car shortage, many of the
commodities handled on the street are
scarce. Dealers are finding it difficult to
get enough sweet potatoes to fill their or
ders. Beans and peas are advancing at
shipping points. Bell peppers and out-door
California cucumbers continue in fair sup
ply. The potato and onion markets were quiet
In the past week, owing to the difficulty in
making shipments. Prices were unchanged
at the close.
I.ARD GOES TO NISETEES CENTS
Half Cent Advance Will Be Effective Mon
A half cent advance in lard Is announced
effective Monday morning, which will put
the best grade of kettle rendered on a 19
cent tierce basis. Compound lard has l
similar advance to 15 cents.
Fancy bacon will be half a cent higher
at 31 H cents for four to six-pound weights
and 294 cents for six to eight-pound sizes.
Dry salt plates will be raised half a cent to
14 cents and smoked plates go to 15H
Loc&I salad oil, large-size bottles, will
be 25 cents higher at $4.25 per cais.
Advance of one-half to one cent in dried
Peaches were announced by Jobbers yester
day. Several of the cheaper grades of
canned meats, which did not participate
fully In the recent rise, are now higher.
American sardines have advanced, owing
to the light run of the fish.
ftBE BUTTER DOES 'OT CLEAN C1P

The batter market was weak and drag
ging at the close. Front-street stocks of
country cubes failed to clean up at ruling:
E?8 were no more than steady. Sales
were reported at 41 cents, case count, though
most holders asked 42 cents.
There was only a light demand for pool

With the closing of the apple picking and

Kennewick will have finished one of the
most successful fruit years in its history.
Two hundred cars of apples have moved

The success of fruitgrowing here this year
Is without question due to the manner In

to the growers here $39,150.

ing Factor Rains Cause
Fall in Argentine Market.
CHICAGO. Nov. 4. After being alterna
tively depressed and rallied today by vary
ing news In regard to crop conditions In
Argentina, the wheat market finally under
went a setback, due largely to a falling off
In export sales and to contfnued arrivals of
Canadian wheat In Minneapolis. Prices closed
weak. i to 2 c net lower, with December
at $1.82 $1.V2?i and May $l.s-4 to $1.S4U.
Corn lost S S Tc and oats H tftf He. Pro
visions finished irregular, ranging from 5c
decline to a rise of 15c.
Export wheat sales for the day In the
United States amounted to only 200. 000 bush
els and seaboard clearances were hardly
more than half as large as a year ago.
Minneapolis was reported as getting about 25
cars of Canadian wheat a day. Wheat
prices weakened early. Influenced by a fall
of 7 cents In quotations at Buenos Aires,
where reports pointed to further bene
ficial rains for South and Central Argentina.
It was said also that Argentina holilers
were realizing and that the Buenos Aires
markt t was uner severe foreign pressure.
Corn eased off with wheat. Active Euro
pean demand tended to check declines and
there was considerable talk of a prospect
.that British millers would utilize corn for
mixing into flour.
Oats paralleled the bearish action of other
Scarcity of offerings caused provisions to
tighten up after an early decline. The initial

WHEAT BUXLS ARE HANDICAPPED
Rains In Argentina -Cause Market to Leata
to Bear Side.
CHICAGO, Nov. 4. Despite sharp tempo
rary bulges, the wheat market in the last
week has leaned mainly to the bear side.
Hains in Argentina handicapped the bulls
nd so, too, for a time did apparent pros
pects of a renewal of tension between the
United States and Germany. The outcome
has been net declines of o to lc as
compared with a week ago.
Whether or not the drouth in Argentina
could yet be regarded as effectually broken,
the fact seemed to be increasingly evident
that extreme fears concerning the cutting
down of the Argentina exportable surplus
would hardly Da realized. tie fore this as
pect of t the supply situation was to any
extent cleared up, the market, impelled by
urgent foreign demand last Saturday,
touched new high record prices well above
any price level for 2S years. On Monday,
however, the Argentine drouth damage,
which was disturbing Europeans, went sud
denly Into eclipse on account of the torpedo
ing or a steamer with many Americans on
board. Then came news on Tuesday of un
settled weather in Argentina and on
Wednesday arrangements at San Francisco
for wheat Imports from Australia.
Difficulty of obtaining storasre insurance
In Chicago was an added burden on spec
ulative prices and there was a further
stumblins-block in the fact that Minneap
olis millers appeared to be making liberal
us of shipments from Canada.
Bis- fcxyoit business esterciay and the
day before rallied the wheat market from
setbacks due to continued reports of Ar
gentine rains. In the end. though, many
holders were Inclined to take profits, as
doubt seemed to prevsll as to a steady
aintenance of foreign demand In the face
of pome evident lack of enough readily
available ocean tonnage.
Increasing arrivals of corn tended to make
that cereal relatively a little weaker In
price than either wheat or oats. Losses in
oats reflected the weakness of other grains,
but were only fractional. Provisions have
been depressed by unusually Iaree i-ecelnts
of hogs that were too light in weight to
meet with Quick disposal.

and approved unanimously.
un Thursday the silo demonstration tour
took place, and It proved by far the most
sucresefui demonstration held so fur In the
county. Forty-four automobiles, carrying
20O people, took part in the tour, which
took us to 10 farms, where el;ht different
kinds of silos are in use. After the crowd
had inspected a silo and its contents, the
owner gave statistics regarding Its cost of
construction, cost and method of filling and
many other facts regarding his experience
with silos. Many questions were asked, all
of which helped to make the occasion a
most valuable educational reature. This was
repeated at each larm visited.
Much Interest was shown in studying the
methods of stsbllng of livestock on the dif

stock Itself was the center of attraction for
a few minutes, until tbe meeting began.

was not denied, however. that domestic

prouuets of all descriptions and the super
abundant supplies of cash favored tue long
From the speculative standpoint, the most
Intel esung- feature was the turther inquiry
for low-priced rails, some of which made
their best prices in years. Conspicuous
among these issues were Rock Island, whose
annual report gave promise of an early re
lease from the existing receivership; Chi
cago Ac Alton and others of the same class
now emerging from, or In process of re
organization. More gold was received from Canada, but
bankers in control of that movement in
timated a temporary cessation. Sterling and
francs were without material change, but
discounts on Australia, Italy and Russia
were more favorable to this countrj.
With pig iron at a premium and orders
rejected almost aally, it is assumed Uiat
higher prices soon will be announced for
finished products. As for copper and allied
metals, dealers quoted another advance for
nlgner grace copper to oe oe.lveraa in the

shows a steady increase.
