ASTORIA FETES VISITORS
Chairman Lissner Describes Spot
as One With Historic Past
and Commercial Future.
ASTORIA, Or.. July 8 (Special.)
"I was indeed surprised to find
such a modern and extensive ocean
terminal and such a magnificent
harbor as you have here," remarked
Admiral S. "VV. S. Benson of the
United States shipping board, just
before leaving lor Portland tonight.
"Your port is certain to develop in
importance with the growth of ship
ping on the Pacific coast."
A party consisting of Admiral
Benson, ex-Senator Chamberlain and
Meyer I.issner of the shipping board,
Clifford W. Smith, secretary of the
board, and Charles W. Garry, attorney-examiner,

Following a luncheon the visitors

wera then taken on an automobile
trip about the city and harbor, in
cluding visits to the salmon can
neries and other industrial plants.
Senator Chamberlain said It was 18
months el nee he had been In Astoria
and ho was pleased to see the vast
nurriber of improvements, particu
larly the big docks and terminal fa
cilities which have been provided.
"I see by their work," he added,
"that the Astorians are earnestly
behind the movement for the crea
tion of a big merchant marine."
Commissioner Lissner said, there
was nothing official in the visit
here today and added: W simply
wanted to accept the hearty Invita
tion extended by the Astoria people
to visit their cits, and I can truth
fully say we are glad we came.
Neither Admiral Benson nor I had
ever been in Astoria and we eagerly
accepted the invitation to visit a city
which has an historic past and a

SHTP BOARD HEARING IS DUE
Sesslon-to Open at 10 Tomorrow
in Old Postoffice.
The- shipping (board party Is to
rpand today resting, at least no pub
llo entertainment Is to be carried
out They are to open a .public
hearing on. section 28, of the Mer
chant Marine act, at 10 o'clock to
morrow morning In the. old postof
f ica building, ' Sixth and Morrison
streets, which may continue until
Tuesday afternoon. Hearings on
Puget. sound are scheduled for
"Wednesday and Thursday, and the
latter part of the month at San
Francisco and- Los Angeles.
Oregon shipping Interests are to
appear before the commissioners
and present a mass of detailed data
relative to shipping of the Columbia
river district, showing the amount
handled in past years on foreign and
American ships. The traffic bureau
of the Port of Portland commission
and commission of public docks will
be represented by H. L. Hudson, and
the Chamber of Commerce by W. D.
B. Dodson, general manager. Gus
C. Moser, attorney for the Port of
Portland, "W. P. La Roche, attorney
ior tne commission of public docks.
and J. N. Teal, as attorney for the
Chamber of Commerce In the case.
have labored in the compilation of
much data In support of the conten
tion here that section 28 should not
be enforced at present, because the
amount of American tonnage in the
Pacific trade is not sufficient to
meet the demands.
section 28 affords preferential
rates to freight moving via rail and
water if handled In American ships
ana ,tne contention Is that with for
eigii tonnage handling the bulk of
cargo to and from Portland, the en
forcement of the provisions of the
section should not be exacted for
the present. The shipping board
committee is to report to the Inter
stat commerce commission the re
sult of Its hearings.
COLD SAILINGS TO RESUME
Refrigerator Service to United
Kingdom to Be Every 30 Days.
Resumption of the refrigerator
service of the Green Star line the
latter part of September, the steam
er Blue Star being due then at Port
land, has been announced through
the "Pacific Steamship company by
H. H. .Eaton, general agent here.
Mr. Eaton says the schedule pro
vides for a sailing every 30 days to
United .Kingdom ports.
Vessels of the line have been here
in the past, but a schedule has been
maintained during the fruit-ship
ping season, since the vessels are
primarily for refrigerator consign
mejits. With other lines bidding as
well for apples and other fruit dee
tined for Kuropean ports, it is prob
able the movement from Portland
this season will exceed the showing
made ior tne 1921-zz period.

PRICES GOVERNED NOW BT
Damage to Spring Grain Has Not
Developed to Any Serious Ex
tent; Export Trade Better.
The weekly review of the grain mar
ket and growing crops by Peter S. Good
man, of Clement. Curtis & Co., Chicago,
as wired to Jordan-Wentworth Co.. fol
Private reports kept the wheat mar
ket up to recent valus during the early
.part of the 'week. butte-ward the lost
trading was at declining prices. Weak
ness was mostly in the later deliveries
based on better prospects in the spring
wheat region where no material trouble
has developed. The market at present is
purely a crop prospect affair. Tthe small
deliveries on contracts are making the
sellers of the July option nervous, and as
the wet harvest is general, the receipts
are small with sales for export increas
ing. The spring wheat crop Is now the main
consideration and damage has not de
veloped to any extent so far. over the
three important states. The weather has
been favorable to growth and the plant
is progressing towards the ripening stage..
The fear of black rust persists and will
continue to do so until the crop is safe
from Its effects, or the damage develops
in the final etage, as it frequently has
done in the past. The prospect on the
government average Is for a crop of
around 250.000,000 bushels, but this will
be materially revised should the crop
escape rust injury. The Pacific north
west has a poor orop and is now beyond
Export trade has been Improving. The
amount of wiheat available from the
southern hemisphere Is emaller than last
year and as harvest is reached in this
country and Canada, the outward flow
of wheat should be as large as lost year.
Wltb the fall down In the winter wheat
crop, the total wheat this soson will not
exceed last year at the best and may
fall below. This will make for a stronger
market In the long run. In the mean
time, the trade has to carry the load of
the new' crop hedging until the export
movement reduces the hedges.

Wheat bid wer a cent lower all

terday. Owing to the repeated declines,
there was not as much demand as earlier
in the week. Offer were out for new

much disposition to sell at thl time,
being influenced by the indications of a
lighter crop in this section..
The feature of the market 1 the orien
tal demand for wheat Japanese pur
chases to date aggregate between 1,500,
000 and 1,760,000 bushels. Tbe purchases
call-for shipment up to September and
a little business has also been done for
October. No sales were reported yester
day, but there were inquiries. An en
couraging feature of the business Is the
fact that the buying is not confined to
one firm but is participated In by all
the Japanese concern operating here,
which shows the wide extent of the de

"The market for wheat In Buenos

the new wheat and the outlook can be
considered very satisfactory. Some for

ALL GRAINS ARE LOWEH
GER3IAN SITUATION AFFECTS
Persistent Selling of Wheat Dur
ing Day Crop Reports
CHICAGO, July 8. Effect of the it
uation In Germany were apparent In the
action of the grain markets here today
and values were lower all around. At
the finish wheat was down lHc to 2c
with July $1.12 to M.1'-'V and Septem
ber $1.10?4 to $1.10; corn was off c
to 2c; oats showed a net loss og lc
to lo and provisions ranged 12 c to
At the Inside figures September wheat
was 2c under ths close of the previous
day with rather persistent commission
house selling on the way down. Concerns
that usually act for seaboard account
did some buying and several brokers
were figuring on liberal quantities for
shipment to the eaat, presumably to fill
old sales abroad. Exporters were after
wheat in the southwest although no new
business was claimed at the gulf. Crop
reports from the spring wheat territory
continued favorable and country offer:
ings of grain to arrive remained light,
except in sections where banks have been
pressing producers to pay up notes.
Corn and oat were under pressure in
sympathy with wheat. Weather con
dltion9 generally were favorable for corn
and the bulk of the private reports were
optimistic, esnecinllv frnm th. section
that received rain of late.
Provisions were easier with some scat
tered liquidation in evidence in July
lard. What support there was came
mostly from local shorts.
' The Chicago grain letter received yes
terday by the Overbeck & Cooke com
pany of Portland follows:
Wheat It was a weak market from
start to finish with occasional small ral
lies on short-covering, which served only
to weaken its position. The disturbing
foreign political news had much to do
with making sentiment so intensely
bearish, especially in view of the re
ported cancellations by Germany of con
tracts for wheat for July, August and
September shipment The exiport situa
tion otherwise showed absolutely no im
provement, in fact these was not even
inquiry for cash wheat in any market to
fill old sales such as was conspicuous
here the past few days and in Winnipeg
for the past week or more. The demand
in. the latter market was poor and
premiums lower. The belief is gaining
ground that export trade will not revive
by the time the movement of new wheat
gets under way, which would leave offer
ings dependent upon an Inadequate do
mestic milling demand. The few scat
tered reports of black rust that have
come in have not been taken seriously.
As weather conditions have been against
its extension and the forecast for next
week is for continued favorable weather
for the growing crop, the incentive to
promote aggressive bullish tactics is lack
ing et the moment.
Corn Held relatively .firm during the
first half hour but after that gave way
to the pressure of liquidating sales in
fluenced by weakness in wheat and no
doubt in fear that foreign financial dis
ruptions might check the export demand,
which has been the mainstay of the mar
ket for the past few weeks. The cash
demand was not so keen as it has been
recently and spot prices fully reflected
the decline In futures. For the time
being or until the present feeling of un
easiness is dissipated by more encourag
ing developments the trend of the mar
ket will probably be downward.
Oats Liquidation was on in this mar
ket as In other grains and prices receded
quite rapidly in the absence of support.
Cash prices were lower with the futures,
but the trading basis was firm. Crop re
ports are showing some improvement
since the recent rains and cooler weather.
Rye Trade qrffet and the market
rather weak, reflecting the declines in
other grains. The most conspicuous sell
ing again was 1n the form of hedging
against old and new crop rye. The mar
ket was inactive with no offerings.
Leading futures ranged as follows:
