Weak at Outset.
Wheat The only weakness during
the session was at the outset after
which prices responded in a convinc
ing way to the firm alarming report
regarding the possibility of spring
wheat deterioration. The disturbance
was In the form of a message from
Nebraska claiming the appearance of
black rust In the northern part of the
state. . This could do no material dam
age to the winter wheat but Its signif
icance lies in the , likelihood that It
might spread to Smith Dakota and
other big spring wheat producing ter
ritory. Another development In favr
of higher prices was the report that
foreigners are buying wheat for ship
ment far ahead as October, contradict
ing yesterday's advices which lacked
truthful color that export Interests
were trying to cancel wheat purchases.
With the spring wheat crop facing Its
critical period the September delivery
Is naturally gaining preference over
the July. ' Outside cash markets were
somewhat easier but !oca! offerings
were light, spot premiums were well
maintained. Receiver reported the
country showing no disposition to ac-
c.ept strong bids to arrive, it seems
very evident that a higher level of
prices la about to be established.

Four thousand troops, the remnants

to official advices. This Information

Siberia under Japanese support. This

OREGON BEST OF. ANY
Portland Banker and President
of American National Bank
Enthusiastic About Wheat
"Eastern Oregon will get back on Its
feet financially before any other sec
tion in the Northwest If the present
crop prospects are realized."
That was the statement, made this
morning, of V. L- Thompson, presi
dent of the American National Bank,
and vice-president of the First Na
tional Hank of Portland.
Mr. Thompson arrived this morning
from Portland, and he remained in
Pendleton today. He will leave this
evening for Chicago where he will at
tend a conference of bankers of the
Chicago federal reserve June 13 when
an effort will be made to arrange for
raising the balance of $25,000,000
needed from private sources to meet
the needs of vrestern stockmen. ,
The conference at Chicago rose out
of activities of Senators Stanfield of'
Oregon and Gooding of Idaho and
western bankers with J. P. Morgan.
The eastern banker has promised that
New York banks will furnish 50 per
cent of the pool of $50,000,000 needed
by livestock men1 provided banks in
otner districts will matte up me oai
ance. If the remainder of the money
can be secured, the Industry wilt "be
saved without government aid.
Piiidlcton Loolfti Good"
Mr. Thompson took time this morn
ing for a trip over Umatilla county
wheat fields, and he is enthusiastic
over the condition of the crops here.
"Present prospects are the best I've
seen since 1907," he declared. "Pen.
dleton and Umatilla county always
good shape now. And after all is said j
mid done, nothing will bring the coun
try back to a sound basis as quickly
as good crops."
Mr. Thompson returned only last
week from a trip In the East and Mid
dle West on which he spent four
weeks. He visited New York. Boston
Chicago, St. Paul and Minneapolis.
"Hankers at St. Paul told me that!
the prospects for good crops in that
part of the country are the best they
i have had In years." he said.

man is that whatever name be chosen
that the' "Hill" be dropped and the

Mrs. Susan Darr of Adams writes
