Situation Rice Is Lower.

Discussing; the situation In Imported nuts
a larg Eastern Importer writes:
"Tarragona almonds must be very diffi
cult to obtain In the primary market, for
usually at this time the year the operators
In Spain are anxious sellers and are flood
ins; this market with cables, but this year
not only is there no anxiety to sell, but
cables from Spain offering; Tarragona are
rare. Prices are now making; on new crop
Mountain and Campania Naples. October
shipments from New York. Sicily filberts
continue firm, with prices slightly higher In
the primary market. Brazils are again
higher, and with stocks greatly reduced we
must look for a still further advance, as
prices have been abnormally low."
RICE PRICES ABE MORE REASONABLE
Buyers Are Hammering the Market in the
The rice markets during the past two
weeks have been working down to a very
reasonable basis. Texas mills have been
coming into the market quite freely and the
buyers have been hammering prices until
values have got to the point where the
market sterns able to resist further reduc
tion. A slight upward tendency is now
The sugar market la steady at the recent
decline, which was caused by the pressure
to- sell-new crop raws. Commenting on the
. sugar situation an Eastern authority says:
"A year ago at this time prices were the
highest for many years, centrifugals at
5.965c and granulated at 6.615c net cash,
.due to the short crops in Europe and Cuba.
Prices are now about lc lower, with indl
cations of no very sharp fluctuations for
the Immediate future, and a possible gradual
moderate reduction later, due to the pros
pect of ample supplies tn the new campaign.
The rather limited demand for refined Is
due partly to the fact that consumers in
many localities are still stocked with much
larger quantities In the household than is
usual, having bought heavily early In the
season In anticipation of possible high
prices in September, as occurred In 1911.
They have learned that last year was very
exceptional and will soon be buying freely
Iate advices from Maine say that the
outlook for the season's corn pack Is very
poor, owing to continued cold weather, and
that at the best not more than 50 per cent
of last season's pack can be expected.
With reference to the tomato situation the
Chicago Canner says: "Weather improved
both East and West, Increasing the supply
and bettering the quality of the raw stock.
In consequence the shortage in tomato pro
duction this year will not be as great as
Indicated ten days ago. There will be
material shortage for the larger acreage
planted, but what the shortage will amount
to or just how the pack will compare with
last year's small output is not at present
knoyrn to anybody. Every body Is entitled
to a guess, but at present nobody knows,
Reports from Norway are to the effect
that the catch of mackerel so far has been
quite good, but the American buyers have
snapped up all parcels offered, and in con
sequence of this prices have advanced during
the last week. The fishermen, seeing that
the American buyers were eager to acquire
the fish, put up their asking prices and are
speculating upon getting more money within
the next few weeks. The fleet is still out.
and cables report that good- catches are ex
pected to be landed, and a reaction from
the present high level is considered by deal
ers as sure to come.
Not much Interest is shown In the prune
market yet, only a few buyers quoting prices
Ip this state. In California the packers axe
offering 30-40s at t cents, peaches, apri
cots, apples, raisins and all California dried
fruits are lor this season.

WOOL TRADING LESS AT BOSTON
JUU Buyers Say Concessions Have? Been
BOSTON, Oct. 4. The Commercial Bul
letin will say tomorrow:
A auleter week has been in evidence In
the Boston wool market and some dealers
have shown a little uneasiness over the
fact that the mills have been less active
In the market. The mill buyers aver that
concessions have been made In the trade,
but this seems contrary to the strong and
healty conditions underlying the market.
Transactions have largely Involved ter
ritory wools, but have included some
fleeces and foreign wools. The Lawrence
strike had a dlsqueting effect on the tex

EUROPE SELLS HEAVILY
irxLOADIXG OF STOCKS CARRIES
NEV- YORK. PRICES DOWN.
Early Rise Is Almost Entirely Wiped
Out Money Market Condi
tions Are Favorable.
NEW YORK. Oct. 4. Europe was again
the foremost factor In today's stock market,
utnrt develoDmente in the Balkan situation
precipitated heavy selling of our securities
at leading foreign centers, much of which
bad to be taken here.
Foreign selling did not materialize exten
sively until after the close of the European
exchanges London's closing quotations for
our stocks were highly encouraging with
gains of a point or more In Atchison, Can
adian Pacific and t- Paul. These were
all duplicated here, the first hour's business
being on an extesilve scale, but local sell
ing for profits and the short account soon
arrested the rise.
Later when the offerings from abroad
were sent In. the entire market began to
sag and before -the closing nothing was
left of tne early rise except in a few in
stances. The closing was active and heavy,
with fitful rallies from the low level.
Money conditions were favorable to the
market. Not only did call and time money
rates relax, but our .bankers cancelled a
large part of the gold engaged In London
during the week. This was accepted as
proof of the Improvement in the money sit
uation. The bond market moved with stocks.
