GOOD FALL DEMAND
Merchandise Moves Well and
Collections Are Easy..
SLOWER TRADE IN PRODUCE
Wheat-Bayers and Sellers Apart in
TJteir Views Lack ot Hop Orders!
From the East Local Jobbing
and Prodnce Quotations.
No complaint "is heard from Jobbers of the
character ot business now under way. There
is a good Fall demand in all merchandise 1
lines and collections are reported satisfactory.
In produce there is not as much doing as. a
week aco and prices are more or less de
pressed. The wheat market is particularly
quiet, and bops are also slow.
"WHEAT The firm views of growers and the
unwillingness of shippers to pay prices above
what have lately prevailed have resulted in a
condition of almost stagnation in the wheat
Tjsarket. The amount of business done in the
past week was less than in any correspond Jng
period in the past five years. "Values are prac
tically at an exporting basis and the move
ment -would be good if shippers could only get
-wheat. The market yesterday "was quoted,
sveak and unchanged.
Of market conditions abroad, J. W. Rush, of
London, writes in the Northwest Miller of
It cannot be said that there has been any
ttnerease in Activity in the wheat market this
week, but there has been more firmness,
cnainly due to the delay in the English wheat
Sarvost and the disappointing reports received
.regarding the Russian and American wheat
The September report of the Washington bu
reau is taken here as indicating a total crop
of not more than 650,000,000 bushels, which
-means that the surplus for export this season
will not exceed 175,000,000 bushels, against
203,000,000 exported last season ending June
.20 and 235,000,000 In the previous one.
As I showed in my letter In the Northwest
ern Miller of September 2, the import require
ments of the various countries will amount to
about G10.000.000 bushels, a. statement which
I see no reason to modify. This being so, it
will be felt that there will be no difficulty in
absorbing all that America has to spare, and
if reports received by cable this week of se
rious damage to the Manitoba crop be correct,
there will also be a marked falling off in the
cupplles from that quarter.
From Russia, however, the movement con
tinues to be liberal, far, exceeding the exports
from the United States, although a prelimi
nary oiiiclal estimate puts the wheat crop at
68,000.000 quarters, against an official estimate
last year of over 73,000,000 quarters, -which is
generally believed, however, to have been an
In the six weeks since August 1, the follow
ing quantities have been shipped to Europe,

It may be estimated that the weekly re
quirements of European Importing countries in
the presont season will not be less than 1,075,
000 quarters, to that up to the present this
amount has not been reached. There Is, how
ever, a temporary lack of demand on the
-t" trtinc-nt. owing to the Kupplles of homo
grown "wheat from needy farmers.
In France the position has changed com
pletely; two months ago it was confidently
believed that the crop would be very defi
cient, today most of the estimates point to a
big yield, but ot poor quality, the . crop, in
fact, is estimated by come as likely to reach
45,000,000 quarters, which would render
France quite Independent of foreign wheat,
except the usual supplies of Russian at Mar
ts. Hies, where the export flour trade necessi
tates an admixture of strong foreign wheat.
The French markets also take this view of the
question, seeing that native wheat is now
selling at 32s to 34s per 480 pounds, which is
about 8s per quarter below the importing level
of foreign wheat.
Cabled reports from Buenos Ayres received
this week state that the area under wheat
this year is estimated at 30 per cent more than
last scar, -which would indicate a total area
of 10,075,000 acres, against 7,750,000 acres of
ficially estimated last year. Early estimates
of the Argentine, however, are prone to be
very rosy, and should be received with caution.
Meanwhile, however, the crop conditions are
The Immediate future of wheat prices, apart
from the action of the American markets, the
lnfiuence of which Is of course paramount,
teems to me to depend upon the action of Rus
sian sellers. A yery large quantity will have
to be obtained from Russia this season, prob
ably 17,500,000 quarters, and It will be very
surprising if, after the inevitable pressure to
ecll at the beginning of a new crop has sub
sided, that country remains a free seller be

ent value of good wheats. No. 1 Northern,

and No. 1 hard Manitoba, 32a Cd. The cheap
est wheat at present is Indian, at 20s23s 6d
lor Kurrachec, and 30s 3d for Calcutta.
FLOUR. FEED, ETC The local flour- mar-
Jset is fairly active and prices have been main
tained in the past week. The export situation
does not present any very alluring features.
The advance in steapship freights will have
a tendency to shut off business, at least tem-poi-arily,
and for the next month a very light
demand la anticipated from the other side.
Asiatic buyers, however, will have to come to
the terms asked, and even if the restoration
of rates is permanent, the trade should even
tually be restored to normal conditions.
There is no change in the feed market. A
moderate business is under way in millstuffs
and oats, barley and hay are as last quoted.
HOPS For some reason not entirely clear.
trading in hops has slowed down. The pri
mary cause of the inactllty, ot course, is the
lack of buying orders from tho East, but
whether this is duo to a condition of weakness
or an effort to bear the market Is more than
the trade here can fathom. The fact is evi
dent that no one is In a hurry to buy hops
at the prices that have ruled for a week, and
growers are equally determined not to sell at
lower figures. Latest mall .advices from the
Continent report a strong statistical "position.
Tre total 1903 Continental crop was variously
estimated at C55.000 to 715.000 cwt. and the
consumption at 735.000 to 785,000 cwt.. which
would indicate that the Continent could not
pof-lbly spare hopj for export. The United

cases tho mills appear to bo buying only
what they are forced to buy by their actual
necessities, and in many cases where they
havo taken on wool they have been Insistent
that it be shipped Immediately. Some fair-
sized lines of medium wools have been moved,
both in. fleeces and territories, and staple ter
ritories, both fine and medium, have figured
a little more in the business proportionately;
but there has been no movement of million

a year ago.

on the dull period of the year. The season
for Summer fruits is at an end and the time
for heavy receipts of citrus products has not

of the trade will be taken up with apples, a
good supply of which is already on hand. The

Frank Hlrsby, a well-known sheep dealer of
Nebraska. They will be taken to Idaho Fails
aud fattened for the market. Most of the
lambs were raised by Aaron Wade, a promi
nent sheepman of Wallowa County, who raises
mutton breeds exclusively. This fact is par
ticularly gratifying to Mr. Wade at present,
as he has no difficulty in disposing of his
lambs at fair price while those who raise
Merinos are unable to find a market for them.

STEEL HOLDS ITS "OWN
HEAVY SELLING ORDERS IX STOCK
Accepted by Banking- Interest Con-
General List .Heavy.
NEW YORK, Oct. 7. Tho stock market
moved In a rather bewildered way today, but
the dealings represented little more than a
groping by professional traders to discern the
sentiment of the real holders of stocks. The
reduction In the Steel dividend brought in some
heavy selling orders, but they were all accept
ed at first by one hefase, which was credited
with acting for banking Interests connected
with the corporation. Support was accorded
this stock, especially the preferred, during the
rest of the day, and the personality ot the
brokers employed for this purpose caused a
surmise that the market management of tho
stock had come back to the hands that wero
intrusted with the first flotation. The common
stock was forced down over a point at one
time, and the general list was heavy after the
The marked weakness ot Amalgamated Cop
per, which lost more than three points at one
time, had a decidedly sympathetic effect on
the general list. Traders who sold the stock
pointed to the fact that as an Industrial on a.
2 per cent dividend basis, it was too high com
pared with United States Steel, now on the
same basis. But the Inferences drawn from
the movement of the stock as to the market
attitude of the large capitalists controlling
this corporation were of much more effect on
sentiment than any dividend comparisons. Tho
accompanying weakness of St. Paul gave em
phasis to this view of the market attitude of
the Standard Oil party, and made the contrast
stronger with the support in evidence for a
number of Morgan stocks, including the Steels.
Erie (was also notably firm, notwithstanding
the depression among the coalers, as a group.
Assertions were heard that the coming cold
weather offers little prospect ot an absorption
of tho accumulation of anthracite.
The late strength in Atchison, which rallied
the whole market, seemed to be based upon
the declaration of the regular quarterly divi
dend of 1 per cent, and to the growing sense
of security as to the safety of the com crop.
The insufficiency of dividend considerations to
hold prices ot the industrials was shown In the
cace of American Car, which fell a point In
spite of the retention of Its 1 per cent quarterly
dividend. The preferred stock also fell three
points. The decrease In net earnings for the
past quarter ot $4,338,4S7, compared with the
corresponding quarter ot last year, of the
United States Steel Corporation, and the fall
ing oft of 1,714,265 tons In the unfilled orders
on hand for the same period, had a depressing
effect on all the Iron and steel industrials, and.
Indeed, upon sentiment as a whole, as being
the most conclusive evidence of the extent to.
which .the commercial reaction has already ex
tended, and the danger of Its still-further ex
tension. Money conditions are growing unmistakably
easier, and the demand for commercial paper
for New York account is reviving decidedly.
Tlmo money is in increasing supply, while the
demand at prevailing rates is almost wholly
nqminal. The Increasing ease of money Is
having Its effect In the growth of some Invest
ment demand for railroad bonds of a good
grade. Total sales, par value, $3,220,000.

STRONG WHEAT PRICES.
Better Market nt Chlcnsco, Due
CHICAGO, Oct, 7. Everything considered,
wheat prices were strong, due largely to the
unfavorable weather throughout the entire
wheat belt, although smaller receipts added
to the general apprehension among shorts.
Opening prices were firm, with December a
shade to H0Vic higher at TTVic to 77?4c, not
withstanding the rather indifferent tone of
cables. With some improvement in the cash
demand and on covering by shorts, the price
advanced early to 775i77?ic, but later sold
off again on prospects ot more favorable con
ditions, the weather map showing clear skies
tomorrow for the West and Northwest. Sell
ing pressure was augmented by a private crop
estimate of over 700,000,000 bushels for the
crop year. Commission houses were good
buyers late In the day and the market rallied
to about the opening figures. December closed
lie higher at 7777?ic
Corn ruled firm. Influenced mainly, by the
heavy rains throughout the corn belt. De
cember closed V0Hc higher at 45Sc
Oats were firm. December closed 4c up at
Loss of confidence among outside holders of
provisions was given emphatic expression In
the form of general liquidation of long prop
erty. The selling was heaviest In October lard
and ribs, which showed losses of 45 and 55
cents respectively. Packers apparently made
no effort to support the market. The close
was weak, with January pork down 20c, lard

Most of today's large receipts of wheat j
were from Oregon and Washington. Wheat
options were higher, following Chicago, but j
trading lacked activity. Barley strength
