Wheat Liquidation was renewed
Immediately after the opening but the
market showed more resistance to the
seller and sharp rally carried prices to
a premium over last night's close. The
local cash demand was fairly good and
premiums were slightly better for
choice grades. Outside market, how
ever, showed less strength. Exporters
continue to take fairly large quanti
ties but apparently have assumed a
waiting altitude, and are buying onlyj
on breaks, realizing that there is plen
ty of wheat for sale and that t'tiy r.re
not likely to encounter any difficulty
' securing immediate requirements.
The domestic milling demand also Ins
been quite active although flour sales
for the past two days show some fall
ing off. Practically all advices from
the northwest ore to the effect that the
spring wheat farmer will be u prompt
seller this year. Wo believe adverse
trade conditions will continue to ip
crate against price stability, at lei st
until the urgent marketing of new
crop Is out of the way.

A survey of the resources of the ter

one to appreciate the enthiiKiuMii

Echo. This year the yield has been a

Crops Are fwsl.
"I think we have a minimum of 12,
000 acres of grain land which is trib
utary to town," he said. "A ennserva-

according to my observation, wouliT
be 22 bushels an acre this year, ynite
a lot of It has gone between 30 and
3", bushels, with a lot more between
35 and 30. Very little has fallen un

that Is good."
Something like Tnnfl acres are irri

territory is near Kcho, and there Is a
minimum of BOOO acres under water
there. Then In Hie bottom lands of
the Umatilla, there is easily another
2U0.U acres that Is Irrigated. A great

ASTORIA, Aug. IS. (U. P.) The
dead body of bum In Wing, found
with a knife sunk deeply Into his neck,
is regarded as the opening of a tong
war here. The police were not able
to find n trace of Wing's nssailnnts.
His throat was cut from ear to ear.
Wing came to Astoria from San
Francisco nnd has been here
three years, it Is not known whether
he was a member of the tong but no
oilier motive is apparent as the body
was not robbed. The police are at
tempting to connect this murder with
thak of Murphy Chung, a wealthy Chl
MPHe, found clubbed to death six weeks
ago. Wing's mnrdet was apparently
carefully premeditated. Signs of a
bloody struggle were found along the
steps at the bottom of which Wing's
