Eastern Inquiry Good, but Prompt
Shipment Is Required and This
Cannot Be Guaranteed ; Grain
Bags Are Nominal.
The wheat markets are holding their own
pending developments In the international
situation. Bias at the Merchants' Exchange
ranged from unchanged to 3 cents higher
than Friday a a consequence of the gains
There was some Inquiry from the East
and a small amount of business was worked.
The Eastern trade would be considerably
larger but for the fact that "most buyers
insist on quick shipment. A moderate
amount of trading for California account was
Oats buyers reduced their bids a quarter.
The oats demand was light with fairly good
offerings from the valley. Barley was firm
in the East, prices there having advanced 3
cents a bushel since Thursday.
The Liverpool grain cable said:
"'Wheat dull and easier, expected large
export clearances, several cargoes arrived
yesterday. Corn firm with moderate export
offers and good demand for spot. Oats firm
with advancing spot. Export offers firmer,
arrivals moderate. Flour firm with moderate
"Argentine weather continues dry and
warm. European weather very cold, dry
ness in parts with lack of snow. There is
less Interference with shipping, and it Is
believed that import arrivals will increase."
There is nothing doing at the moment in
3017 grain bags. New Calcuttas are quoted
nominal at XXV, cents. The indications are
that fewer bags will be required in the
Northwest than last year, as crop prospects
are not so favorable as a year ago, and a
larger proportion of the crop will doubtless
be handled in bulk. Seconds will be used
more extensively than heretofore. There is
also reason to believe there will be greater
difficulty in getting bags from Calcutta than
was the case last season.
The foreign situation is unchanged. No
advices have reached the trade from abroad
. that would indicate a softer situation than
has prevailed there, and in view of the turn
that the war has taken it is felt that noth
ing can develop from that section that will
make an easier market until the war is fin
ished. Freight and Insurance rates are high
and advancing, and this, together with the
currency situation Athat prevails in Calcutta
and the Far East in general, is causing con
siderable restricted shipping. Operations in
that market are having much difficulty in
making shipments on account of the many
hindering phases that prevail.
Terminal receipts, in cars, were reported
by the Merchants' Exchange as follows:

CHICAGO. Feb. 17. Many complaints
that abnormally dry weather In the South
west and West waa causing serious crop
damage gave an upward slant to wheat
today. The market closed unsettled at the
same as yesterday's finish to ltec higher,
with May 1.73te to S1.73H and July $1.4814
to $1.49. Corn wound up unchanged to
teVic higher; oats gained to hie. and
provisions showed a rise of 10 to 20 cents.
Disappointment over the absence oi any
new e-rnort . hitvlnff led to some reaction in
wheat rrlces as tho day approached an
end. New crop months, nowever, main

This country's chief supplies of Imported
cattle hides, come from La tin-America, and
this has been" especially the case since the
beginning of the war. With the shipping
of South American, etc, hides to England
and France now more difficult than ever,
it is naturally expected that the receipts
in the United States will be augmented,
which will offset to some extent a possible
aecrease In supplies from Asia and Africa.
The obtaining of hides from the southern
hemisphere, however, will largely depend
on shipping conditions.
l ne imports of cattle hides from Latin
America are at present almost as large as
the total Imports were before the war from
all over the world. During the 11 months
of 1916 ending last November there wer
275.636,35.1 pounds of cattle hides received
from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba. Uru
guay, Colombia and Venezuela, or about 74
per cent of total Imports, while In the 11
months of 1914 receipts from these seven
countries were 16"), 457, 819 pounds out of a
total of 290.665,738 pounds, or about 58 per
cent of all the cattle hides imported.

EXPORT SITUATION IS IMPORTANT
Wheat Trade Complicated by Demoralized
Railway Traffic Condition.
CHICAGO. Feb. 17. Alternating hopes
and fears regarding export business largely
dominated .the wheat market during the
last week with the situation made more
complex by demoralized railway trafflce
complex by demoralized railway traffic
breech between the Teutonic powers and
the United States. In the end prices ranged
from c decline to 4 He advance, as com
pared with a week ago. Corn lost He and
c to He, oats gained lc to lQl7c
and provisions showed no material change
Sharpest advances in wheat came at the
outset, and were due to assertions that
the British Government had commandeered
a large number of South American line
boats and would provide convoys of war ves
sels to rush foodstuffs to Europe from
United States ports. After a double holi
day, bearish sentiment received on Tues,
day an impetus from reports that seemed
to point to likelihood of the arming of all
American merchant vessels. More acuts
weakness developed next day. owing to no
tices of fresh embargoes on Important rail
ways and because of reiterations from Ber
lin that the U-boat campaign would be ac
tlvely carried out deeplte prospects of actual
war with the United States.
Announcements that the British govern
raent would load grain In preference to cot
ton and that vessels for Holland and other
neutral countries would be able to avoid
the German blockade by callinr at Halifax
rallied the wheat market on Thursday and
so, too. did action of railway officials look

requirements of the Atlantic States. Ab
sence of anv siirn of fresh export buying.
however, led yesterday to a renewal of
bearish sentiment, despite crop damage re

CXLOADIXO OF SECVRITIES
Reviewing market conditions at the Tarda
the Livestock Reporter says:
"The cattle market has been rather a
quiet affair each day since Monday, receipts
totaling only 50 head each day. They were
all on the common to medium kinds ot
Deer sturr. Tne demand waa good, es
pecially from butchers. Everything got an
eariy clearance each day and prices ruled
id to z.- cents higher than at last week s
close. The whole situation In the cattl
market is particularly strong and prims
Deevcs are In very urgent demand.
W hlle receipts during the week have
been comparatively light, the month to date
shows a very substantial gain over a year
ago. Receipts for the first 14 days were
81 head compared with 2021 a year ago.
The Increase since the first of the year is
about 2500 head.
"Only a few beef steers have been In the
receipts the last couple of days. One bunch
of medium steers brought $8.25. while yes
terday s best were not good enough to bring
monj man $7.o. A tew common steers sold
from $5.50 to $7. Prime steers continue in
very good demand and if the light receipts
continue a very strong and higher market

vvith hog receipts the last few davs the
lightest since last Summer, made up prin
cipally of small lots from Willamette Valley
points, another 10c advance was given by
packers this morning. All fairly good hogs
brought $12.20. with a few small lots of
heavies at $12.23. The demand for pigs ls
unlimited, all speculators having more or
ders than they can fill. All 110 to 123
pound pigs brought $11, while 90 to Im
pound stuff found ready buyers at $10.75.
The demand for prime heavy hogs, ss well
as prime lights, is very good and the only
thing that keeps down another advance In
top prices is the lack of quality offerings.

Patrolman Frank Ervln. At a speed of
55 miles an hour he was chased down
Mllwaukle street to the Clackamas
County line, where the policeman over'
Municipal Judge Langfruth recog
nized the smiling; young- offender when
Kenneth was brought before him. On
Wednesday the Jurist, driving: his car
on Union avenue, was compelled to
turn aside by the reckless approach of
a motoro cllst.
"Hold on a moment! shouted Judge
Langguth, and Kenneth obligingly
obeyed. He was asked to appear in
court the next morninar. when he was
chided by the Judsre. Promising; not to
"cut her loose," the boy was freed, only
to be trailed by Patrolman Ervln In a
wild ride the following night.
'But I wasn't going 65 miles an
hour." he protested yesterday. "I don't
think I was making more than 45."
Taken to the Juvenile Court, he was
forbidden by Judge Tazwell to ride his
motorcycle, or any other, for six
months. Disregard of the court's order
will be followed by action to place him
in the Industrial School for Boys.
Eighteen speeders, largely gleaned
by Patrolman Ervln froiruihe stream of

charged the defendants with lengthen

Placing of Government Contracts for
Cloth for New Army Would Bring
About Wildest Market for
The wool market at the present Urns Is
governed largely by buying In anticipation
or Government needs. As stocks are limited.
the speculative operations, which have cen
tered la the medium grades, have given
further strength to values. Not all develop
ments anticipated as likely to follow the
severance of diplomatic relations with Ger
many have materialized, but the wool trade
s aeeniy s,iive to the delicate character of
the situation, which may be changed In a '
moment to one of great gravity. Manu- -
facturera have been rather slow In meeting
the views ot the holders of wool, though
In some cases they have paid higher prices
than any yet quoted.
Underlying this speculative movement ls
the probability that manufacturers will b
called upon to supply the needs of a new '
army In a hurry. Indeed, it is reported
that certain large manufacturers have been
asked by the Government to clear tbe way
for Army contracts and that this Injunc
tion Is being obeyed as rapidly as possible:
also that new lines "of manufactured goods
are to be withdrawn to give the right of
way to the Government orders. If the lat
ter are forthcoming to tbe extent that now
seems possible, a tremendous volume of
wool will be needed by the mills that get .
the business, assuring big profits to the -speculators
who have been trying to cor
ner the market for certain grades of scoured :
Opinion In the wool trade ls divided as to
whether these contracts will be placed.
Some factors still appear to hope that the
Government may be able to draw back from
the verge of war. though admitting the
gravity of the situation': Those who do not
look for war to be declared, however, are
not holding back from the current wave of .
speculation. There is a strong feoting that
wool prices are not dependent on rumors of
war. but on the certainty that manufactur-
era are facing a big shortage In their raw -material.
Their attitude is that war may
Accelerate, but the lack of It cannot stay
r-slie upward swing ot values.
Perhaps the "-most prominent feature of .
the market has been the speculative move
ment in scoured wools, both foreign and .
domestic being moved freely. Not only has '
the market been more active In this than
in other directions, but the price advances -
established have been marked. Considering '
the reduced stocks, this movement has been
fully as pronounced as anything noted last '
year. In some cases It Is said that certain
lots of wool were sold three or tour times -
In a single day. The first seller, on finding -thst
the buyer had turned about and was
offering the wool at an advanced price of
6 cents or so over the purchase price, would
feel that he had made a mistake, and If he
naa neia on couia nave got more money. - -A
little of the wool has gone to manufac
turers, but the bulk to other dealers, some ,
lots being 20 cents higher at the end of tbe
day than In th morning.
Much ot the interest In these scoured
wools nu Deen out to the fact tnat tney
would become Immediately available for .
use In tbe making of Army goods. They ;
have been the favorite football of the specu
lative element for a year. Territory and
Cape scoureds. B super pulled wool, and .
others of similar character have been moved -
In large volumes. A conservative estimate
is thst transactions would aggregate fully -S0O0
bags and bales for the week. Other
estimates Indicate fully 10.000 packages.
The extent to which brokers and oealers
have been running about handling over and
over the same lots of wool posslbiy has
given a fictitious air to the market, betting .
aside all Inflated considerations ot that
nature, the wool trade ls enjoying a good
slsed boom and It would take but the .
