The festival given at Turn-Verein
Hall last night for the benefit of the
Presbyterian Church proved a very
pleasant affair. The hall was elegantly
decorated with flowers and festoons of
flags and fancy articles. Booths sup
plied with notions to tickle the fancy
and draw on the purse-strings were
distributed about the hall and presided
over by the ladies and misses of the
church. In going the rounds of the
hall we found the followiug: Fancy
table, Miss Sue Bold and Miss Bettie
Bettis; flower stand, Mrs. Clark and
the Misses Ella Shields, A. Scott,
Cornie Standford and Annie Thomas;
fancy table, MissCasad and Miss Peel;
refreshment table, Mrs. Doak and Mrs.

prominent feature of tbe evening was
the art gallery, presided over by Mr.
Chamberlin. Oue saw there more cu
riosities in a minute than he could
pick up in prowling around back-yards
for a week. Everybody after inspect
ing the gallery took a great interest in
having somebody else see it.. The at
tendance was not large, but sufficient
we should judge to insure a good finan
cial return for the benefit of the cause.

LOS ANGELES MARKET.
Bince our last report the crop reports
have been watched with great interest
by both dealers and consumers. Re
ports were quite favorable for crop
until last Bunday, when the hot desert
winds swept down our valley, drying
up many kinds of crops and making
the prospect less favorable for the
farmer and for trade.
The latest reports from San Fran
cisco show a moderate export trade
during the past week. The falling off
in the wheat exports has a very
marked influence on the volume of
business. We have cleared three car
goes of wheat for England since the
Ist, showing a value of $210,000. The
only other cargo clearances have been
the steamer Great Republic for Yoko
hama and Hongkong, with flour.
The Liverpool wheat market is given
at 8s lld©9s 2d for average California
and 9s [email protected] 6d for club. These are
low figures, but tbe market continues
to look weak under large imports and
favorable weather for the crops.
New York advices say the export
trade continues light, shipping mar
gins on all our principal staples being
adverse. The recent advance in wheat
has checked business, as neither miller
nor exporter can purchase at present
figures and realize a profit. This,with
lower prices from the West and Eug
land, has deprived the market of its
buoyancy, aud at the close prices are a
shade easier. Spring is selling at $1 18
@1 27 per bushel, with extra Minne
sota for milling as high as $1 30 and
Winter at $1 35(0>,l 37. Borne No. 2
Milwaukee has been sold for June de
livery at $1 235. The telegraph
reports fine growing weather in the
West and Northwest, Rnd though the
Winter crop sustained rather more
thau average damage from the rigors
of the past season, it is the opinion of
the best judges that the increased
acreage of Fall sown and a full average
breadth of Spring seeding will bring
an average crop, future weather being
favorable, and the whole country be
ing taken into consideration. There
are many sections of the West where
wheat is in excellent condition and
promises a full crop; yet if some of the
prophets were to be believed we should
be in some danger of a famine a few
months hence. The light stock here
and the limited quantity likely to ar
rive this month ure calculated to
break tbe force of the fall in wheat
which now seems to be impending.
Corn has declined [email protected] on increased
offerings and a falling off in tbe export
demands. Barley is scarce and very
firm at $1 55(u}l 57 for prime Canada,
with no business of moment.
The latest from Chicago says the re
turns of stocks in tbe Chicago ware
houses present au anomalous condi
tion of thiugs. The quantity of grain
on storage is not much different from
what it was a year ago, though there
is considerably more wheat, but a large
reduction in other grain. The details
compare as follows:
Wheat, bushels 2,304.500 3.970,200
Corn ~ 3,183,800 2,121,700
Oats 849,4'.i0 532,900
Rye 25,300 5,700
Bailey 128,:00 (il 300
The combined aggregate is 6.001,800 ;
bushels, an increase of 200,000 busheis
as compared with the same time a
year ago. The light quantity of bar
ley on the market will surprise most
people. The weekly receipts of barley
at San Francisco equal the entire
stock at Chicago. There are some or
ders here from the East for barley,
which may be filled if the price should
go much lower, though It is too late in
the season to expect much trade of
THE WOOL MARKET.
In New York the market continues
very dull, though toward the close of
the week there was a slight increase
iv tbe demand. The sales of tbe week
chiefly were of California. There ap
pears more disposition on tbe part of
holders to meet the views of manufac
turers, though the change in rates has
not been great. New Spring is being
received in moderate quantities, but
prices realized are somewhat below
what dealers were led to expect. It
has got to be a very choice lot that
will realize 35 cents; most of the sales
were made at [email protected] or 33 cents. Fall
California has made with a very liberal
demaud, and prices continue firm.
Both foreign Clothing and Carpet ma
terial are quiet, but prices exhibit no
change. Sales for the week comprise
89 bales Australian, [email protected] cents; 25
do. Cape, private; 30 do. East ludia,
at about 15 cents; 181 do Spring Cali
fornia, at [email protected] cents; 300 do. Fall do.,
at [email protected] cents; 125 bags scoured, at
•j.st;. 71 cents.
The Boston market shows the fol
Transactions in the Wool market
have again been quite large, but there
is no improvement to notice, and
holders are still disposed to close up
their stocks as fast as possible. The
principal transactions have been in
pulled and California. Fine fleeces
still move slowly, and holders have to
shade a little ou both tine fleeces and
Australians, to effect sales; but me
dium and combing and delaine fleeces
still command very extreme prices.
The stock of fine fleeces here is con
siderably reduced, and mostly in the
hands of one house. Transactions in
California have been the largest for a
long time, comprising 772,000 lbs. Fall
and Spring, at [email protected] for Fall, and
[email protected] for Spring. The highest price
before obtainable for new Spring has
been 35c, and this may be considered
an outside figure for choice lots. Good
average lots will not bring over [email protected]
30c. There have been sales of combing
and delaine fleeces at 54fV.56e; unwash
