AUSTRALIAN WOOL Cl.IV IS ' SHORT
One Leading Authority Estimates) the De
rrraw st 300,000 Bales.
The shortage ro the Australian wool clip
this year may have considerable effect on
the world's prices In the coming season.
There is still some uncertainty as to size
of the clip. Da'.gcty Cp. have raised
their estimates of the shortage to 300,0)0
bales. This flrnfts previous estimate of the
shortage was 2."0.n0 bales.
A recent dispatch from a Sydney author
ity says that some representative clips this
year are to 30 per cent lighter than they
were last season: also that some sheep have
cut two pounds less and that It has taken
(0 fleeces In some sheds to (111 a bale,
whereas 50 to 00 sufficed last year. Another
report says that many of the Blverlna Bocks
are cutting from 1 -J, to 2 pounds less per
head than those of last jc-b
Other advices, however, discount the fore
going reports. Even this season 100 sheep
have filled three bales on more than one
large property. Ktatementa made that
South Australian sheep were cutting fleeces
as bulky and quite as sound as those of
last year have been confirmed by cablegrams
regarding the wool already sold in the Ade
From an owner in New South Walts
comes the statement that the sheep have
cut light fieed-s. He shears 70.000 sheep
and expects to find his clip some hundreds
of bales less than that of 1611. ' Another
large owner there states that his average
win be one-fifth lower, taking all his prop
erties .into consideration.

NEW YORK. Nov. 8. R. G. Dun Co.'B
weekly review of trade tomorrow will say: -
With the Balkan situation less menacing
to world peace, though still serious, and with
the uncertainties of the National election at
a,n end, the business outlook is improved.
This is reflected in the Increased buoyancy
of the financial markets and in expansion of
trade and industry. .
A situation that is based on an unpreced
ented movement of wheat and a record
breaking production of pig Iron can be de
scribed by no other word than prosperous.
Every department of business experiences
the uplift and expansion which result, first
from the tremendous crops and, second,
from the restored confidence and credit.
Leather and hides continue very strong.

No one in the trade today exhibits any
signs of weakness because supplies are too
short to cause m-orry. Were there sup
piles of raw and manufactured material in
the market as there were In 1992, a decided
slump would unquestionably have resulted
from the election.
All the world's markets are firm and tend

LATE RALLY IN STOCKS
MARKET IS HELPED XEAR THE
CLOSE BY CROP REPORT.
Tone of Values Earlier In the Day Is
Heavy Bonds Are
NEW YORK. Nov. 8. Stocks were again
reactionary today, opening with a wide va
riety of losses, which were somewhat ex
tended by midday, but making up much of
their decline towards the end. A factor to
ward the recovery was the Government crop
report. Issued in the final hour. Thus fully
confirmed the brilliant outlook of the past
few months, especially as to corn.
Prior to the issuance of the agricultural
atsrement almost all stocks of importance
displayed vaiytng degrees of heaviness. Fore-J
most among tnese were iouisviim sc r,su-vllle,-
which yielded three points, while the
srrimans, the Canadian group, grangers,
alers and trunk lines were off 1 to
The leading Industrials also suffered from
persistent selling. United States Steel de
clining over one and a half points, with a
similar loss fort Amalgamated Copper and
other metal issues. Ltnh Copper, however,
went higher on the excellent showing of the
third quarter of the year.
Lora money conditions were mildly dis
turbing, call loans being quoted lit JH to
6 per cent.
Bonds were irregular, with total sales, par
value, J2. 125.000. United States Government
bonds were unchanged.
