Something About Mills and Flonr
WHAT GOVERNMENT REPORT SAYS
General Condition of the Produce
-i tj wit
LOCAL WHEAT MARKET .' .
EjtALE&I, Aug. 14.
."When you are talking about Al
bany mills paying more, Jor wheat than
Salem, why don't you teH about their
managers stealing 30,000 bushels of the
farmer's wheal and balngunder Indict
ment for larceny from warehouses?"
The Journal admits that-this has
some bearing on tho subject of local
wheat market, and It ought to be con
sidered tbat the Salem mills are not
managed In that way. That Is quite,
important. A well informed Balem.
buyer expressed some rather Interest
ing ideas about wheat prices and mill-,
ing prospects. He said In place bit a
combination to raise the price of wheat.
there should be a combination to raise
the pfice of flour. To raise the price of
wheat moant ruin to the mills. The
policy of the Portland Milling com
pany is to keep the price of flour down,
so as to pay as little as possible for
wheat. This was a great mistake. The
400,000 people of Oregon could better
afford to pay a dollar a sack for flour,
he said, than get it at a price (bat
ruined both the millers and left the'
farmers nothing. At 46 cents for wheat
and Ave bushels of wheat to the barrel,
the cost of the raw material Is ?2 SO.
The flour sacks cost 15 cents a barrel;
freight and drayage 15 cents. That Is
J2.'60 net. The mill feed sacked Is
worth to the mill 50 cents. Flour now
sells at 2.60 outside price. That is (3
for the manufactured product that costs
$2.60. Out of tbe 40 cents gross profit
to the miller there must be taken tbe
screening, discount of 2 per ceqt oft for
cash, losses from bad debts, clerk hire,
and other expense. It will bo seen that
tbe miller has but little left, The Al
biny, Bllvortou and other mills that
hi've bid high for wheat and cut the
price on flour haye nearly all failed.
Ttie price ot flour must go up or the
present prices cannot be raised on
THE FROIT MARKET.
The Journal lutervlew with Mr.
J. M. Wallace was a source of great
satisfaction to fruit farmers lu this
valley. They feel as though there was
a profitable future for orchards. Theio
will be a market for nearly everything
In tbe Hue of green fruit at Balem this
fall, It will haye to be flrstclass In
quality and it will have to be delivered
In good shape. Tbe Oregon Fruit and
Produce company of this city Is

to them by growers, glylug them the
benefit of their expedience as packers
and shippers, and aiaklDg returns of

mission. They have sent East a
number of carloads of peach plums.
One car was wild in New York Auguit
O.h, and will net the. grower about 1

paying all expenses of shipping and
packing. Another car went forward

mum tetriperaturo on record at Port
Jnd There was an entire absence of
raidall during the week. Due to the
roua aud extensivo forest fires
?tb9 Western portion of Washing
ton and Oregon, the air is filled witli
smoke, so much so thut tbe sun Is
almost obsured, it appearing as though
It wdre a red ball of fire. This smoke
-Is usual 'during the month of August?
atd contlnuea until the first rains
occur, which eyent happens about
Cros Harvesting is almost over, and
thresbinff Is in progress. Some few
correspondents report the yield as
shown lly tbe threshing, which, In
wheat, varies from 21 to 88 busbolsper
.acre,; oats from 30 to 70 bushels per
aore, and barley, 20 to 50 bushels per
acre.' Bipio spring grain Is yet to be
barf eMHput that will be practically
done by the close of the present week.
Peaches are becoming yery plentiful
and large shipments are being made.
The best varieties of peaches are now
ripening. Plums and prunes will be a
full crop, picking and drying of them
being now lu progress. The berry crop
is about oyer, though a few late berries
are yet being picked. Apples are fully
an average. Bpraying was more gener
ally practiced this year than formerly,
and apple orchards have been given
more than the usual care; tbe result Is
that there are fewer codlln moth,bence
a better quality of apples. The peer
crop will, as usual, be a full crop, nLd
of a better quality, due to tbe greatir
care of the orchards. Tbe fruit crop of
Oregon is becoming larger and better
oyery year. A great portion of tbe state
is admirably adapted to prunes, apples,
nears, peaches, apricots, to berries of
all kinds and to melons. Josephine

HOARD OV TRADE.
Chicago quotations to Balem by
telegraph today Indlcato that tho price
of wheat would be , held down for a
time ou account of the gold shipments.
This proved quite correct today,
wheat opening at CO and closing at
06 j, making a Blow market, but firm.
The curb at 2 p. m. was stronger
than the closing, CO J flat.
Two weeks ago It looked as If a full
orop of hops would be harvested. Now
many predict only half a crop. The
oause of the sudden change in bright
prospeots Is that the warm weuther has
prevented the hop forming at the end
of the arms of the vino. Eu&eue
Great flue clusters of hops are being
brought Into town from nearly every
yard In this section and all denote a
fully. formed and heavy yielding crop.
Several samples we havo seen are al
ready ripening. Those who ought to
know say that ploking will begin at
loast two woeks earlier than last year
or by I ho first of September sooner
