The aopgrowers of this section are prepar

has been called, to be held at the Hotel
Tortland In this city Tuesday, April 25. at1
2 P. M. Just what will be done- is not an

for the purpose of discussing conditions and
submitting a proposition, which In effect will

The fact that such a meeting will be held I
has already stiffened th views of holders,
and it is practically impossible to buy hops
now except at higher figures than have lately
prevailed. Several lots that were on the
market last, week have since been withdrawn.
The following circular letter to hopgrowers

We present for your consideration extracts
from two letters received from New York un
der date of April 10:
From the New York Hop Reporting Com-
tany: "The New York Journal of Commerce
eays. -We shall have a surplus oi 55,000
bales of hops at the end of the year. These
figures are reached "by assuming that our
consumption will be 200,01)0 bales and our
net exports 53,000 bales. Without any ln
lentlon of being alarmists, it strikes us that
there totals are not to be depended upon. Our
ber -output is increasing, as internal reve
nue .statistics will show. The country Is
everywhere prosperous, and England must im
port large quantities of hops before the
Summer ends. Our domestic consumption Is
likely to be nearer 250.000 than 200,000 bales.
Internal revenue barrel tax on ber. Septem
ber 1, 1808. to March 1. 11)04. $20,627,588-41.

3D0.53. .or about 450.000 barrels. This gain
n. ill be augmented when coW weather gives
uay to warm weather. The -gravest danger
tn the market under prevailing conditions is
that If short-stacked brewers In England and
here begin to buy In large quantities a panic
rush may ensue and prices go up like rockets.'

STOCK MARKET UNSETTLED
SEIZING TO TAKE PROFITS DIS
Dug to Kecesslly of Protective Pleas
ures in Connection "With
NEW YORK. April 17. There was consid
erable uniettJement manlfeste'd in the stock
market today, partly due to the carrying over
bad impression from Saturday on ac
count of tbc rather urgent pressure to take
profits on the week's rise. This Impression
as partly dissipated by the buoyant opening
this morning, but the high prices made then
invited renewed selling and served to discour
age the confidence of operators for hlffher
prices. The market for the rest of the day
was spotty and irregular.
Selling on the opening rise was of such
dlume and character as was not to be Ig
nored. It was generally supposed to be duo
in part to the necessity of protective meas
ures in connection with the wheat specula
tion. Various publications pointing to the
hazardous position of those committed to the
wheat deal made opinion sensitive on this
point. In the wheat market itself the
weather news helped to sustain prices and to
that extent relieved apprehension over the im
mediate situation of the yitld. But on
the other hand, the possibility of damage
to tbo crop by the unseasonable weather is a
disadvantage to values of stocks and had
Its part in cooling the demand. The Wintry
weather carried Jts threat of damage to
other crops a well, and was one of the
ppreciable factors In today's stock market.
Another was the assemblage of the sen
ate committee to Investigate the problem of
railroad rate legislation. This topic had
fallen into the background during the recent
enthusiasm in stock speculation. The re
ports of the committee's Intention served to
bring it Into consideration again with Its ul
timate possibilities when. Congress assembles.
Railroad officials continue to talk in conn-
dent tone regarding traffic, but their usual
weekly interviews were of a more restrained
tone than for some time past.
While these minor considerations played
their part, the market continued to give the
principal attention to the question of tho
Northern Securities distribution and the re
adiustment irrowlng out of it. While the
mandate of the Supreme Court was Issued.
as was expected, there was still absolute lack
of official announcement or confirmation for
any of the many stories of deals supposed to
be awaiting this event The situation proved
a strain to speculative confidence, especially
in view of the highly concentrated charac
ter of much of the selling of Lnlon Pacific
and the fears aroused as to what It might
Imply. This stock and Northern Securities
on the curb reacted with some violence after
the opening and carried depression into the
other stocks which have moved in sympathy
with them. The exceptional strength shown
by SL Paul did not serve altogether to off
set this influence; neither did the sustained
advance Jn Atlantic Coast Line, which was
only moderate in Its effect, even In Its own.
The renewed strength In the united states
Steel stocks was of much influence, and
seemd to be due to satisfaction with the pro
ceedings at the annual meeting of the cor
poration. The preferred rose easily to 1
new record level.
Money here was distinctly easier, but ster
ling exchange was eteady. The closing tone
of the market was heavy ana uncertain, aa
it had been for most of the day.
Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par value.

Chicago Wheat Market Fluctuates Witt
CHICAGO. April 17. After a little firm
ness at the start, sentiment In the wheat
pit became quite bearish, lower prices pre
vailing throughout the greater part of the
day. At tho opening July was ftgftc lower.
at 8Sft88Hc May was fte lowr to ftfc
higher, at $1.14ft1.15. Buyer here had the
help of firmness at Liverpool, due chiefly to
a decrease In shipments from Russia. In ad
dition. vthe situation throughout the Winter
wheat belt of the United States showed many
signs of conditions favoring bullishness. From
many Western and Southwestern points com
ments on the reported cojd dry weather were
anything but optimistic -as to the growing
crop. An impression that conditions In tho
Southwest were generally favorable to the
crop gradually gained ascendency In the pit.
As a result the market soon lost the Initial
firmness. Several prominent traders became
moderate sellers of May and caused a slump
of $1.13ft In the price of that delivery. Trad
ing was, as a whole, email in volume through
out the day. Late In the session weakness of
corn and oats brought out considerable sell
ing of wheat by pit traders. July fell off to
87ftc Large prlrnary receipts tended to de
preaa the market. At the close Julyi was
easy at STftc. Final quotations on May were
ftc down at $1.14ft.
Liberal liquidation wan again a feature of
trading in the corn market. July opened un
changed to ftc higher at 4S48'3c and closed
Weakness of corn caused considerable sell
ing of oats by pit traders. July closed at 29ftc.
A decline of 10c In the price of hogs cre
ated weakness In provisions. At the close
July pork was off 15c. lard was down 5c
and ribs were 2ftc lower.

EQUAL TO FRENCH SCHOOL
Academy of Fine Arts to Be Estab
lished in America.
NEW YORK, April 17. Plans for a
school of flno arts equal to the Ecolc des
Beaux Arts, of Paris, have been made
public by Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler,
president of Columbia University. They
are based upon the consolidation of the
National Academy of Design and tho
present art Interests of Columbia Uni
versity, to be aided by the co-operation
of the Metropolitan Museum. A fund of
$500,000 tvIII be necessary to finance the
enterprise. One-nfth of that sum has
already been promised by a citizen whose
name has not been made public. It Is
expected that the site which the Academy
of Design acquired at Amsterdam avenue
and Eleventh street, where the tempo
rary school now stands, wll be sold and
the proceeds applied to maintenance of
the proposed institution. The academy
will then. If present negotiations are ap
proved, build on a site opposite Colum
bia University, a structure In which will
be housed schools of painting-, sculpture.
desgn and archaeology, all under the di
rection of the university.
The plan rests largely upon suggestions
made by Sir Caspar Purdon Clarke, the
JJ VMJJJIH A. Ut UWtJ Vote fVG. UiC
newly elected director Of the Metropolitan
museum oi Arts, wno came irom J-onoon
a few weeks ago, urging that the mu
seum must be a living institution, and
that the genius of American artists
should be fostered.
Under the name of the Academy of De
sign of Columbia University the new col- j
lege will teach esthetics and the philoso
phy of art, while the Academy of Design
will teach tha technique and Instruct pu
pils how to create works. The Metropol
itan Museum of Art will so arrange its
collections as to make them object les
sons to the students. It Is believed by
tho promoters that this plan will not only
greatly encourage American artists, but
will improve and develop crafts and
manufactures throughout the country.
Tho trustees of the academy may act
on the matter In a few days or possibly
not until the annual meeting. May 10.
