Tacoma Hop Firm Believes Conditions WIG
The following letter to the ."hopgrowers of
Oregon and Washington hai been issued by
l6aac Plncue Bon. of Tacoma:
It is reported that some of -the largest
lionses In the East are selling out and this is
being used as an argument to induce growers
to sell. Now it is a peculiar thing that these
bouses would hold hops for three months on a
declining market and sell Just when tho
change Is here. Their answer would probably
be that they now see their mistake. Wo
would like to ask them this: If they made a
mistake last Summer in selling 1904 hops at
SO and Si cents more than they needed, ex
pecting hops to go higher, and made a third
mistake in holding these 30 and 31 -cent hops
until tho market dropped to 25 cents, does'it
not demonstrate that tbey are not "infallible
and may be' making a mistake again in sell-
lng out now (if tier are jelling)? The fact
of the matter is that a. large percentage of

when the English growers have pooled they
say the dangerous feature is the large Quan

The true situation today is that the English
market is firm and advancing and the Contl
rental markets are the came. Almost every
tale of hops that was held by weak speculators
In the country has been bought up, and the
only hope for the bears is to break the market
before the weather is the East gets warm and
brewers demand deliveries. They are now
making their last desperate effort, the success
of "Which depends upon the grower. The grow
ers are the only holders of hops now excepting
three firms In Oregon and Washington, who
will hold until July, regardless of what grow

When the buyer tells yon in one breath that
bops are going down and in the next tries
to buy your hops, tell him that you do not
want to see him lose any money and you think

Indications point tc a lower egg market next
week. Speculators are not buying freely for
storage and outside orders are also falling off.
The drop in the East has enabled Seattle buy
ers to land Eastern eggs there cheaper than
they can buy them here. The local demand
is also a little slower and stocks are accumu
lating. Jt is not likely that the price wilt
decline far. Poultry is in fair demand, good

UNLOADING BY POOLS
MONEY OUTLOOK PRINCIPAL MO
TIVE FOR SELLING OF STOCKS.
Industriars and Speclaltis Advance,
but Railroads Are Heavy and -Touch
NEW TORK. March 17. The money outlook
was a dominant influence in stocks today
and the days price movement wag downwards'
on tho average. The Industrial stocks and
specialties were quite sharply divergent from
the railroad list and furnished quite a large
record of advances. This class of securities is
largely dependent cq factors of individual ef
fect, being less responsive to general develop
ments than the railroad list.
The Individual influences today -were not
known In all oases. It was Inferred from the
movement in the Metropolitan stocks that
hopes were entertalnod of a share by those
Interests In future Subway work. A common
property interest might be traced in some of
the other stocks which -Advanced and it was
assumed pools were at work In them. The
copper stocks and the railroad equipments had
some share in the show of strength.
On the other hand, the heaviness in the rail
road list was quite general, although the move
ment during the day was hesitating and Irreg
ular. Prices touched a considerably lower
level, however, than yesterday. It was sup
posed that pools and speculative syndicates
were unloading to a considerable extent and
there was no doubt that the money outlook
was the principal motive for this action. This
was a sentimental influence to some extent as
there was very little withdrawal of credits by
calling loans, according to the reports of
money brokers. There was. however, quite a
large paying off of loans on call, which fol
lowed the precautionary liquidation of stocks.
It was said that a considerable part of the
call loans paid off were liquidated with the
proceeds of time loans. Operators In stocks
hitherto have refrained very persistently
taking out time loans, even at the invitingly
low level of rates, being satisfied to rely on
day to day accommodations.
A feature of the day was the renewal of
the demand for gold from France; which
made luelt felt in London. This gave rise to
renewed conjectures regarding a Russian, loan
and was the cause of some une&sincas over
possible disturbances in France This con
tributed to the growing weakness of the later
stock market. During the same period call
loans fell to 2 per cent. The market closed
weak at about the lowest.
Bonds were easy. Total sales. $3,685,000.
United States bonds were all unchanged on

SUED POE HEEL OH DEAD MAN
Associated Henry B. Hyde With
James and Sospy Smith.
DENVER, ilarch 17. Charges of crimi
nal libel against George J. KIndel, aris
ing from the alleged publication and cir
culation by the defendant of a pamphlet
in -which the .picture 0 Henry B. Hyde,
founder of the Equitable Life Assurance
Society, appeared between the pictures o
Jesse James and "Soapy" Smith, under
the title, "Klndel's Famous Gallery of
Dead Characters," are embodied in three
Informations filed In the Circuit Court
here today by District Attorney SUdger.
A capias was issued for Mr. KIndel.
KIndel is alleged to have published the
offending circular February 20, 1S05, and
to have circulated it by means of the
mails and otherwise, Trtth the intention
of Insinuating that Henry B. Hyde con
sorted -with outlaws and confidence men.
Charles Vy. Mitts. Inspector of agencies
ofthe Equitable Society, who made the
-affidavits on which the informations are
based, said that the prosecution was in
stituted after all other -means had failed
to Induce the author of the circular to
discontinue the publication of alleged de
famatory Insinuations regarding one "who
Is dead. The- circular had not Injured
the company's business, and It was not
for business reasons that the complaint
was filed No notice was taken of an
other pamphlet by KIndel, In which he
made a direct attack upon the company.
The object of thelactlon, Mr. Mills stated,
was solely to stop all such attacks upon
the character of the deceased father of
the present head of the Equitable.
Mr. KIndel was actuated In issuing the
circular by the failure to realize the
amount he expected on a 15-year policy
In the Equitable, according to Mr. Mills.
