Litest reports, received from leading tittle
producing centers of the country indicate
serious condition so far as supplies are con
cerned. With beaiy eiportatlons of beef to
Europe ind with a fast decreasing supply f
cattle In this country, the outlook is seemingly
for a famine in meats such as this country
lias never witnessed.
This bis railed forth comment from con
suming and butchering Interest to the effect
that the government should place an embargo
against further foreign shipments until tbe
American supplies become heavier.
Such agitation 1 likely to become stronger
as the price of beef on the hoof advances sad
the price to tbe cossnnwr moves higher. Tbe
recent advance in tbe price of baby beef at
North Portland to the highest price on record
here for open market transactions Indicates
quite clearly that there Is a dearth of real
go-si quality, and that killers sre vying with
one another to secure these supplies. This
means not only extreme prices for top quality
stuff, but also means that ill beef prices will
be sdvancod in proportion.
In the Pacific aorthwest the deeresse In
cattle holdinga has been less marked than In
other sections of tlie country, but the with
drewal of supplies for eastern shipment bas
made the shortage here even more acute than

While very heavy receipts of whest sre
shown at Liverpool and purchase to go for
ward are also heavy for tbe Immediate fu
ture, there was a slightly better feeling la tbe
cLh wheat trade there during the day. Ilroom

Ugber for the day.
Chicago market showed little change dur
ing tbe early trading, the market not making
the serious decline expected as a result of
Mondsy's government report showing less crop
damage thao eipected. The trade I much
ifcllued to take this report with s grain
of salt, especially as it gives Oregon a
very poor crop outlook, when It has one of
the best In the country, while It gives tbe
middle west a better showing when all con

Wheat Reacts in
The Chicago Pit
Slight Early Gain Is Quickly Lost
in Trading Local Crowd Turns
to Bear bide.
Chicago. Msy 9. (I. N. 8. Wheat prices
reacted 1 cent from a fractionally higher open
ing in tbe market today. After the initial
firmness, the local crowd turned heavy sellers
of wheat and found very little support. This
resulted In the sharp dip In prices. Commis
sion bouses were free sellers on tbe break
and later bought In on tbe lower levels. Trad
ing, as a whole, was of a broader nature than
It bas been with the deferred futures leading.
At the end of the first hour July and Septem
ber values had recovered to tbe opening range
and apparently were in better tone.
Corn followed tbe trend adopted by wheat In
tbe first hour, with a firm opening, early
sharp reaction and subsequent recovery to tbe
first price range. The government report on
Lay stocks showed the largest totsl on record
this season and was construed ss decidedly a
bearish factor. Tbe general sentiment seemed
to favor a lower level for prices.
Oats were about steady at the opening snd
maintained an even trend during the early
teuton. The usual traders' sffalr featured ac
tivities in this department of the grain market
and nothing developed to swerve prices appre-

Comptrollsr Wants Particulars oa
roreira Bond Mold lag's of Banks.
In his latest call for a statement of
the condition of the banks as of May
1 of -his year the comptroller of the
currency is seeking detailed Infor
mation as to the amount and kinds
of obligations Issued by foreign coun
tries which are held by the national
banks of the United States. The comp
troller wants separate returns made
on the obligations of the English,
French. Russian or Italian fovern-
ments, and of the obligations Issued
by German, Austrian snd Turkish 1
governments and by South American
countries held by the banks. In ad
dition the comptroller wants to know
the amount and number of protested
checks which the banks have experi
enced since the date of the last call,
and a detailed statement of the loans
made to other banks and trust com
panies. There Is one question which
has stirred the ire of the banks, be
cause they claim It la Inconsequential
and Impertinent. He want to be fur
nished with information ss to what
vacations It Is customary for the banks
to allow their employes, and also If
there are any of the bank officials
who hsve not enjoyed a vacation In
The returns of the holdings of Port
land banks of the obligations' of other
foreign countries It is believed will
be inconsequential. It Is thought the
reports will show only a few Anglo
French bonds, some short time notes of
the Argentine republic and some Cana
dian dominion bonds.
Xioans to Deposits Cross TJp BTearly
2 Per Cent- The ratio of loans to de
posits for the Portland banks on

cities of the Pacific coast was 68.9
on March 7, 1916.

Silver and X-abor Affect Textile

"As the phenomenal rise In silver In

power of many countries, through their

large factor In the demand and supply
of many kinds of textiles.
"Present labor difficulties among

has ceased to be a heavy Seller.
This fact Is acting in a beneficial way
on the market. Great Britain's April

After the War Prices Must CoxnS
Down. James Couzeiis of Detroit, tha
well known automobile man and dlreo
tor of the chamber of Commerce of
the United States: "I believe that the
war orders have played a very, import
ant part in the growth of business m
this country, and that, therefore, tha
stopping of them will have a vary aer
lous effect unless something unfor
seer, at tlie present time takes place
to offset them. Aa far as foreign
trade Is concerned, in my judgment,
there will be a great curtailment of It.
but I do not believe that It will greatly
ariect domestic trade. It seems to ma
that the abnormally high prices must
come down before business in this
country will be good. I do not believe
that they should become ruinously low
prices, 4jut that a more normal pries
must be attained before development
all) go ahead.
"I do not believe that the prosperity
wave has extended all over the United
States; nor do I believe that It baa
extended to all lines of trsde la all
sections of tlie country. There are
trades which have been poor and are)
continuing poor, and 1 believe that un

March Exports Break World's
ord. The bureau of foreign and domes
tic commerce reports $410,000,800 worth,
of goods exported from the United
States in March. This exceeds febru
ary by $7,ou0,0o0 and la more goods
than any nation ever exported before
in any one month. It is $113,000,000
more than the previous March, and is
nearly double the March average for
the preceding five year. In the nine
months ending with March exports fell
lesB than $5,oon,ooo short of $J, 000,000,
000, thus exceeding by more than II.
000,000,000 the record fur the corres
ponding period of any preceding fiscal
March imports amounted to $214,
000,000. exceeding by $20,000,000 the
previous record of February, by 6I,
000,000 the tola! for March, 1915, and
by 60 per cent the March average fftr
the preceding five years. Nine months'
Imports to March 31 last aggregated
$1,605,000,000, compared with $1,3H,
000.000 last year and $1,402,000,000 in
1912-13, the former record year. Of
March Imports, 67.8 per cent entered',
free f duty.
The month's export balance was.
$186,000,000. compared with $139,000,
000 In March, 1915, and $5,000,000 in
Msrch, 1914. For the nine months the
present fiscal year to date shows an'
export balance of $1,491.00.000, being
more than double that of last year and'
more than three times that of two
years ago. Present indications point
to an export balance of $2,000,000,000
