as hfgrh as 52 cents was offered In th lat
ter part of the week. Term contracts hold
at the former scale.
There was a fairly active movement dur
ing the week in spot hops, probably for
speculative account, and the business1 almost
exhausted the small remaining supply. Only
one small carload of 191Ss is left and they
would bring 53 cents. For 1917s, 35 cents
was paid.
The new crop is doing well and will make
around 50,000 bales. Some sections have had
red spider, but there is no lice to speak
of and no spraying. Some growers are sign
ing up pickers at 11.20 a hundred. No short
age of help is feared. .

3oat Flocks in Asia Minor Not
Much Reduced by Ravages
of the War.
Turkey has afrain entered the mohaii
market as an active competitor with other
producing countries. Oregon mohair grow
ers will find interest in the letter of the
Bradford, England, correspondent of the
Ancora Journal, whih, in part is as follows:
The unexpected has to a large extent hap
pened. It was nftver thought that 50,000
bags of Turkey mohair would bo found in
either Constantinople or Asia Minor when
hostilities were being waged between the
ailtes and Turkey, but such has turned out
to be the case. In fact, many in Bradford
believed that Angora goats would have per
ished wholesale, being killed for food pur
poses. Constantinople mohair merchants in very
close touch with the growing areas in Asia
Minor have just sent word to Bradford that
not more than 2." per cent of goats have
fallen victims to the war, and the stocks
up country are very considerable. As indi
cated, this is more than anybody anticipated,
and already at least 60O0 bags have arrived
m Bradford. Further advices are to hand
that more is on the way. hence there is
every prospect of at least 10,000 bags avail
able in July. Of course, it takes four bags
of Turkey to make one bale of Cape and
10.000 bags cannot be regarded as any mate
rial stock. It is only an indication of what
may be expect. More than one firm with
very close relations with Constantinople have
received intimarion that rurther important
consignments are being made, there being
everything to lead one to affirm that the
day is not far distant when the Bradford
mohair trade will assume still larger pro
portions than during the past two to three
years. The very fact of there being in sight
at least 50,000 bags of old clip is the most
astounding fact arising out of the recent
war when viewed from raw material stand
point. Naturally this Ttas made every mer
chant and spinner comfortable regarding the
future sunolies and they are looking
ward with no little interest to
the. spun product.
It mav be a little surprise to know
is responsible for sending this mohair to
Bradford so quickly after the armistice was
signed. We are able to say that &e mohair
has been consigned to Bradford by Con
stantinople banks, advances having been
made on it, chiefly on German account.
German emissaries naturally sought supplies
of raw material from which to manufacture
army fabrUs for their own troops; they
bought big weights of Turkey mohair which
in many cases arrived in Constantinople
and remained there.
Those in close touch with the continent
during the la.t year of the war know the
difficulty which has had to be faced in
attempting to shift anything from eaatern
Kurope, and German firms were up against
tli bie nroblem of getting mohair home
when it reached Constantinople from Aai.
Minor.
Cables to hand from Port Elizabeth stat
that one American buyer has purchased loo
bales of good mohair firsts at 26d, a mere
bagatelle to what is possible. Bradford is
surprised at this because there are thousands
of bales available in the ITnlted States which
American holders are wanting to sell, and
why this lit tie purchase has been made is
m.ne than can be comprehended on this
side. However. Cape firsts today at F
Klizabeth can be said to be worth anywhere
from J4d to L'rVl, according to length and
quality, while Cape kids are worth from 20d
to :i0d, with very little doing.
Shipment 110O Ca.e Will Go to Alaska-
Market Firm.
The government has placed a contract
with two Portland firms for 1100 cases of
eggs, to be shipped to the Alaska engineer
ing commission. The order specifies delivery
at Seattle docks by August 10.
The market was firm with cash buyers of
fering 49 cents, an advance of one cent.
Candied stock sold on the street up to 54
cents. Receipts continue small, only 20
cases coming in Friday, of which 221 were
Oregons. 17 from Idaho and 12 from Wash
ington. Receipts for the week, including
Friday, were 1436 cases, against 1923 cases
in the same period last week. Street stocks
yesterday were 2312 cases, apainst 2302
cases a week ago. Storage holdings were

The attention of com trader focussed
throughout the day almost exclusively on
developments In the movement to reduce
the cost of food and of other prime neces
sities. Few concerns had the hardihood to
recommend buying in the face of the wide
spread agitatoin for lower prices and but
a few moments of actual trading at the
outset was required to demonstrate the er
ror of opinions that the corn market had
already fallen enough. Then anxiety to un
load holdings plunged values downward in
hurry. The September delivery maae an
almost vertical descent of nearly 9 cents.
Transactions. though were few In that
month. Week-end covering by shorts tended
to steady other more active deliveries before
setbacks became abnormal.
Oats fell in sympathy with the weakness
of corn. Liquidation of September holdings
of oats was on a large scale.
For the most part provisions went down
grade with hogs and corn. Offerings, how
ever, were not urgent.
Violent price smashing In the grain and
provision trade has gone hand in hand this
week with chaotic labor conditions, tne
breaking of the drougth in the corn belt
and with determined new attempts to re
duce the cost of food and of oiher necessi
ties of life.
Before the downward plunge of values be
gan in the corn market the December de
livery had risen to the highest price yet
this season and there were predictions that
the crop would shrink 50 per cent if the
drouth did not end quickly. At this stage
rioting and strikes intervened, crippling the
packing-house Industry and thus peopardiz
Ing support for the corn market. Wide
spread rains followed and then came ac
tion at the White House and In congress
and elsewhere that gave jolt after Jolt to
the confidence of holders of corn. Stoppage
of work by thousands of railway shopmen
left the market later almost void of orders
to buy.

Government and Municipal Bonds
Things They Teach the Investor
That there is no investment in the world like a good government or
municipal bond? That statistics prove them to be unequaled for safety?
That oil stocks, and other stocks and bonds, issued by the get-rich-quick
promoters, have made more men poor than they have made rich? That
government and municipal bonds do not have an inflated value, because
their worth is based, primarily, upon the prevailing value of money ? That
they are next to money itself, because they have back of them the resources
which, as a whole, comprise the wealth of the country ? That the man
wTho invests in government and municipal bonds is a discriminating investor
and is following the path to financial success and prosperity?
Study the following list of bonds carefully. Pick out one, two or three
issues in which you are particularly interested, then let us assist you in
deciding which security best suits your needs and circumstances. Be a

BOND S
Franklin County Municipal Irrigation District
PASCO, WASH.
A municipal irrigation bond is the same as a city bond. The district is tinder the con
trol of a board of directors and county officials elected by the people. Assessments are
made for the payment of interest the same as city, county and school district bonds.
IMPORTANT AND ATTRACTIVE FEATURES
LOCATION Eleven thousand acres at the junction of Columbia and
Snake rivers. No lands more than four miles from the city of Pasco.
ELEVATION Lowest irrigated section east of the Cascade mountains;
only 350 to 400 feet above sea level. Fruits ripen from two to three t
weeks earlier than lands of higher elevations, and command highest
prices. Long growing season, permitting four and sometimes five
cuttings of alfalfa.
TRANSPORTATION All the important railroads of the Northwest
render eervice to the district. Main and branch lines radiate in every
direction. Steamer service on Columbia and Snake rivers to tide water.
SOIL Nothing better nor more productive under the sun when water is
applied. High values of these lands are because of their pro
ducing values.
WATER The district is supplied from two sources, the Columbia and
Snake rivers; no shortage unless these two important rivers
cease to run.
Discriminating investors buy these bonds because they are a Municipal Bond, amply
secured and pay 6"0 net. Federal tax exempt.
