Foreign crop conditions are summarized
by the Liverpool Corn Trade News as follows-.
L'nlted Kingdom Earliest crops are
ripening with favorable weather.
France There are many complaints being
heard that the unfavorable weather has
eaused serious damage, and at best the
rop of wheat will not exceed last year.
Oats are In splendid condition and improv
ing. iiermany The outlook is unfavorable, as
the prolonged rains and coolness have de
layed ripening. Native supplies are small
nd the demand for foreign wheat is im
rovlng. Hungary Harvesting results are variable,
with indications of smaller yields than
Rou mania Cutting is in full swing and
the quality of wheat is showing poor, weigh
ing 56 pounds to the busheL Corn is Ira
jmvln g. with light scat tered showers.
Isftissfa In the Volga region, which is
the largest producer, the crop Is moder-
telv fair, with some parts entirely de
stroyed. The whole outlook Is appre
nenslve. Italy In the south the yield is poor and
Isewhere fair. The Weather Is unfavorable,
nd this country is buying freely.
Spain Harvest returns are variable and a
-pop about the average is possible. The
weather Is wet for harvesting.
Argentina The weather is favorable for
the new crop.
Australia Further rains have fallen and
the general outlook Is favorable.
India Rains have not been general and
more is wanted.
HOP-YARD REPORTS ENCOURAGING
Heather Continues) Ideml la Willamette Val
ley w York Conditions.
All reports received from the hop-growing
sections of the state yesterday were en
couraging and the growers hope the pres
ent hot weather will continue for several
Conditions in New York State are re
ported by the Waterville Times as follows:
"While the crop on the whole shows al
most an average growth and condition for
:he time of year, yet the opinion is quite
general that the vine Is not as heavy as
usual The crop undoubtedly needs more
rain to produce a heavy growth. Good
rains were plentiful last night throughout
this section, but the weather today has
turned hot with considerable humidity. The
long spell of hot, dry weather we have bad
until today has, without doubt, had the
erfect of reducing the danger from vermin,
quite prevalent two weeks ago. Due to the
persistent spraying the growers did early
In the season for mildew, that disease has
been checked most effectively. The crop
cannot be a large one. but our growers are
determined. If possible, to produce a choice
quality this year."
Bern hard BIng writes from Nuremberg
u ruler date of June 23 a follows:
rop prospects continue very bright, both
In Bohemia and Bavaria. Hop vines are
looking fine, having made very good prog
ress in the last week. Reports from the
other hop-producing sections of the con
tinent are also very satisfactory. Stocks
Heavy Demand for Melons.
Business In the fruit trade continues on a
'.urge scale. Watermelons are the best
seller and clean up about as fast as re
ceived. Five cars came In yesterday. A
tar ot cantaloupes was also received and
they were held firmly. Two cars of mixed
fruits were put on sale. The demand for
pescbea was active and as a consequence
they were firmer. Prices on other kinds of
fruit wre unchanged.
Egg Are Moving; 9Uwly.
There Is not much demand for eggs these
days, owing to the bot weather and the
abundance of fruit, but prices hold fairly
steady, as receipts of goodEga are light,
Podltry arrivals were large and buyers
were not disposed to take hold. Hens were
freely offered at IS cents. Dressed meats
No changes were announced in the butter
r cheese markets.
rugar Ten Cent Higher.
The expected advance of 10 cents a hun
dred in sugar was announced by local Job
bers yesterday. Markets all over the coun
try are firm in response to the advances In
Europe, where speculation in sugar la again
if 1111 hops are so restricted that hold
ers are disposed to task full prices.

Last Flgnres Corn and
Oats Are Also Down.
CHICAGO. July 16 All the experts in
the Northwest reported practically perfect
crop -conditions today and thereby threw
the wheat market Into a state of extreme
weakness. Prices closed heavy, to Hie
under last ntht.
Hope faded for the bulls in wheat 'when
one dispatch after another said there was
no sign of black rust and that the weather
remained just the sort needed to insure- a
lmm.per crop. Liquidation ' and short sell
ing carried the market down from the out
set until the break had reached the lowest
levo! on the present down turn. A fair re
covei took place - later, chiefly through
covering by some of the larger shorts, who
were realising profits.
Rains In Western 'Missouri, that meant
delay to threshing, helped sustain wheat
prices. There was also a sharp falling oft
in the world's available supply total.
Cash grades of corn were in slim request.
The fact that cutting of oats was under
way in Iowa and Illinois; under conditions
which left nothing to desire, had a bearish
effect on prices here.
In ,the end provision prices averaged
about the same aa last night.
