Argentina Conditions Influence
WEATHER SAID TO BE BAD
Leading Factor In Steadying Prices
at Liverpool, Despite Heavy Ship
ments From Russia No De
mand for Flour.
Trading In wheat is almost at a standstill.
Deslers are buying' very cparlngly, devoting
most of their time to making deliveries on
past orders. Eastern business has been
checked, not only by the slow movement pro
Aided by the railroads, but alo by the grad
ual decline in Chicago prices. Export trading
Is also dull as the foreign markets, while they
have advanced somewhat, have not yet reached
that point that will make shipping from this
Coast profitable, in view of the stiff freight
rates asked by shipowners.
The decline In the Chicago pit has been due
principally to the easy position of the cash
market, caused by heay receipts and the un
willingness of millers to take hold. Advices
from Argentina have, therefore, been nearly
Ignored, notwithstanding they have been the
leading factor in steadying the Liverpool mar
ket Report from the South American coun
try hav been more or less contradicting, but
the undercurrent of all has been a feeling of
apprehension over the crop outlook. Dullness

London, correspondent of the Northwestern Mil
The large quantity afloat for Europe at the
dose of last season (July 31). and the liberal
clocks In the port, together with the big Rus
sian ishlproent. have, to a large extent, coun
teracted the effects of the abnormal scarcity
of American wheat and tf.our. And there Is
m. growing feeling that, with another large
Argentine crop and continual large supplies
from India Europe may continue for some
months to Ignore American price conditions.
Personally, I feel that the extraordinary con
ditions of the season do not lend thomselves -to
a lower level of prices In Europe than we have
cow arrived at and I believe that the last half
of the season will prove what fhave all along
maintained, namely, that It will not be easy
to obtain all the wheat necessary for the re
quirements of the importing countries In the
absence of American wheat.
Today cables from the Argentine Republic
report heavy rains,' which, of course, arc pre
judicial to the crop now within a few weeks
ef harvest. Shipper! are, however, prepared to
take present spot values for shipment next
For Australian wheat for distant arrival the
premium has also quite disappeared. The price

ed Today's cables from Adelaide announce
that wheat cutting may begin next week, and
that the prospect Is for only half of last year's
surplus of 1.000.000 tons.
The European visible supply is now the
largest since 1805, but the American and Can
adian quantity is far below the average for
the time of year. The following comparison
of the totals on November 1 for tho last 12
yearn shows the figures (In quarters, hundreds
Euro- American To
pe an. and Can'dl'n tal.
The Times has this week been devoting Itself
to some extent to the question of American
wheat supplies for Europe. It comes to the
conclusion that America must now practically
cease to be an exporter on any Important
reale. and may eoon become an Importer of
wheat because It will not pay to use fertilizers
to any extent. It eeems to forget that next
year crop may quite possibly equal that of
3901, via., 750.000.000 bushels, in which case
America, would again resume the role of chief
provider of wheat for Europe.
The Bulletin des Halles, the most reliable
French agricultural paper, makes the follow
ing estimate of the world's production of wheat
Grand division. Bushels.
hushels less than In 1003; that the crop of
America -was 81,430,250 bushels less than in
3003, and toat the crop of Oceania was 21,281,
250 bushels lees than in 1003. The crops of
Asia and Africa, on the other hand, have In
creased by 56,182,500 and 2,837,500 bushels re
spectively. The crop In France shows a
shortage of C2.425.000 bushels.
FLOUR The past week has been the dullest
In the flour market since the 6eason opened.
The Eastern demand, which has of late been
the great thing, has fallen off. at least, the
Eastern buyers have declined to pay prices
lately considered satisfactory. The Oriental
demand Is likewise quiet, though there was
rather more inquiry in the past week than of
late. The transportation problem is now the
principal factor in this business. .The differ
ence between the views of millers on this side
and buyers across the water cannot be easily
adjusted in the face of the 35 rate of tho reg
ular trans-Faclflc lines, and the successful
conclusion of business depends on concessions
by one of the three parties. It is the hope of
the milling interests that some way can be
found to secure lower freights, and as they
are loath to bring In independent carriers to
bring about this result, they would like to
see the steamship companies make the con
cession. It is said that the continuance of the
forward movement in the present condition of
the market depends entirely on the freight
tariff, and If this Is not lowered, the millers
will be obliged to charter steamers on their
cwn account, or do no business with the Orien
tal HOPS The deadlock In the hop market is
unbroken. Easterners and foreigners are out
cf the market, and local speculators will not
buy unless at materially reduced prices.
Growers either ask what they did two weeks
ago or shade prices to too small an extent to
cause sales. Opinion is divided as to the fu
ture of the. market. Few look for much .Im
provement until after New Tears. The East
ern situation Is thus reported by the New York
Journal of Commerce of November 28:
Business continued quiet. Both dealers and
exporters continue buelly engaged in taking
care of deliveries on old purchases, and, there
fare, are giving little attention to the market
for the present as buyers. Advices received
fom both i up the state and the Coast report
cn:y small remaining stocks in growers' hands
to be marketed, and as it Is confidently be
lieved that all available supplies will be need
ed this season to supply the demand, there was
no attempt made to hurry sales, and prices
were firmly maintained. Foreign advices re
ported firm, but quiet markets.
The Kentish Observer of November 10. said
of the fciiuatlon abroad:
Trade Is slower, and In consequence of pres
sure on the part of some of the large East
Kent growers prices are not so firm; Indeed,
revcral big growths have been sold at a con
siderable reduction. Quotations are merely
nominal, ranging from 0 10s to 10 for choice
descriptions, and 8 30s to 9 10s for secondary
qualities, with Weald of Kent and Sussex
growths at iS to fO per cwt.
Wild. Neame & Co.. hop factors, London, re
port: Business has-been rather quiet during
the week, some few lots have been pressed for
sale at a slight reduction In values.
V. H. & H. LeMay, hop factors, London,
report: Mid and East Kent Go ding hops are
the feature of the trade now: they are the best
value at current rates of any hops that are
left, and consumers are realizing this. Good
Fuggles. suitable for copper purposes, are al
most exhausted. American markets continue to
advance, and continental are firm.
J. H. Meredith, "Worcester, reports: There
is no material alteration in the state of this
market, and although some fair sized lots
have changed hands, the general trade Is quiet.
There are very few samples on offer, and hold
ers of the remaining portion of the crop pro
fess to be confident that higher prices will be
obtained eventually. " Only 152 pockets paesed
the public scales last week, making 7219 pock
ets welched to date.
Advices from Nuremberg-Saax, dated Novem
ber 4, say: Since my last report of Septem
ber 26, prices have gone up all around 20-30
inks per 50 kilos. This movement Is due to
the fact that England's crop was shorter than
expected: It Is estimated that more than 50.000
bales have been bought for England and the
.United States account within the last four
weeks. Prices, therefore, gradually advanced
steadily. At the present moment, as the prin
cipal buying is effected, a rather quiet tone Is
prevailing on the market, but prices are Arm
and very high-rated. Our Bavarian and Bo
hemian producing points are sold out.
PRODUCE There Is again & lull In the po
tato" trade, owing to heavier receipts, slow
local demand and no shipping movement.
Growers and shippers still differ as to the fu
ture of tho market, the former naturally look
ing for higher prices, the latter holding out
The onion market Is in much better shape,
and there is a fair movement to California.
Apples and other fruits are in large supply
and Inclined to weakness. '
Garden vegetables of nearly all kinds are
plentiful and hold to steady rates.
Since Thanksgiving there has been no life
to the poultry market. Fortunately, receipts
have not been heavy and prices should be in
good shape when the demand revives.
Oregon eggs are. If anything, scarcer than
a week ago. and candled stock readily brings
S2 cents. Eastern are plentiful again, and
are quoted steady.
Tho butter market has taken a turn for the
worse. Local creamery supplies are said to be
light, and not much Is coming in from near
by outside points, but Coast butter Is plenti
ful and underselling local brands, and now
California has begun to ship freely. The Indi
cations point to a decline, but it may be
averted. New cheese Is strong.
GROCERIES. MEATS, ETC Another week
has passed with no change in the staple gro
cery list. Sugar is unchanged In price and
slow. In the East and abroad there have been
advances as the result of decreased estimates
of the European crop. Llcht has further
reduced his estimate of the beet crop in Eu
rope by 170,000 tons, which brings his esti
mated deficiency in European and American
supplies up nearly 1.200,000 tons. Lower
grades of coffee continue firm. Tea is 6teady
and rice firm and unchanged.
Livestock receipts were moderately good in
the past week, and prices, as a rule, were
steady. There has been a fair demand for
good veal and hogs, but Front-treet dealers
complain of too many poor ones sent In.

STRONG POINTS ARE FEW
COUNTERBALANCE PRESSURE TO
TAKE PROFITS IN STOCKS.
Heaviness of Early Market Due to
Liquidation of United States Steel,
but Common Later Advances.
NEW YORK, Nov. SO. The stock market
continued Irregularly strong today on s some
what diminished volume cf business. The pres
sure to take profits was counterbalanced by
only a few strong points In the market In the
early morning, but lata In the day the Inroads
made on the price level were repaired and new
points In the list were pushed upward. It
was evident that the large and powerful spec
ulative Interests which have been leading the
trading were still active In the market, and
were diligently conducting the leadership from
one stock or group of stocks to another. The
successful tactics of rotation of buying orders
from one point to another while selling Is pur
sued In the stocks from which the buying is
turned away were very palpable In the morn
ing. News affecting property values received
little attention, but there were plenty of ru
mors of changes projected In property rela
tions and of future plans of stock market oper
ations by this or that party of traders.
With a shift is the speculation to the West
ern and Pacific Railroad stocks, the market
broadened and the strength became more gen
eral. Tho TTida advance in securities on the
curb preceded the movement in the Pacifies,
and every stock which has been connected at
any time with the gossip concerning the sup
posed Northern Securities settlement respond
ed. There was a large list of sharp gains In
a varied collection of specialties and indus
trials, which had been a prominent feature of
each day's market recently, and a number of
high grade investment stocks made marked re
sponse to the demand xor absorption.
The heaviness of the early market was due
largely to the disquietude caused by the liqui
dation in the United States Steel stocks. This
gave credence to the supposition that the re
cent support of these stocks has been the
cause of helping the distribution of the sink
ing fund bonds, which has been evidently go
ing on, and which It is rumored is a forerun
ner of the conversion of an additional $50,000,
000 of preferred Into these bonds. Stock ac
cumulated in this way for supporting purposes
is expected to return to the market after the
object is accomplished. The Steel stocks ral
lied strongly, however, and the common
touched a new high record on the movement.
"Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par
value. $8,765,000. United States bonds were

Reported Darncse to Crop Causes Stresgth
in Chicago Market.
CHICAGO. Nov. SO. Following a decline at
Liverpool, the wheat market here ruled barely
steady. December was c lower to e higher
at $1.06 to 1.06. and May c lower at
$1.08 to $1.0S. The feeling of uncertainty,
however, was quickly dispelled and sentiment
became quite bullish. Apparently the influ
ence In affecting this change was a radical
let-up In the movement of the wheat crop.
Both Northwest and Southwest points report
ed a curtailment of receipts. Figures In the
Southwest were very suggestive of the al
leged low ebb to which farmers' stocks have
been reduced. Another factor of almost equal
Importance was the situation In Argentina,
where wheat harvesters are hard at work.
Special cablegrams today stated that wet
weatherhas threatened serious damage to the
crop in the northern portion of that country.
After the first hour of business, the market
here was very dull, and with an increased
demand for both May and December, options

Toward the middle of the session a reaction
occurred on moderate profit-taking in Decem
ber. As a result, the price of that delivery
dropped to $1.06. May showed only a slight
loss. During the last hour there was active
buying of May by the leader of the bull crowd.
At the same time December shorts cevsred
quite freely. The improved demand caused a
sharp recovery. December advancing to $1.08
and May $1.091.09. The market closed
strong, with December at $1.07.
December corn opened c to c lower, at
