that buyers were willing to take on hops on
the last day of the month.
A carload of prime was sold by a dealer
at 18 cents, and at the close of the day
more business of the same kind was pend
ing at 18 to 18 hi cents. There was a report
of a grower's sale at about the same price,
but It was not confirmed.
Interest in futures was limited to a mod
erate demand for five-year contracts.
No further business was reported in the
California market. The 16-cent Sonomas

iOOD HOII AIR DEMAND IN THE EAST
Texas Hair Well Cleaned t'p and Inquiry for
Demand for good staple mohair la very
good at the moment as It has been ror tne
past week or two, says the Boston Com
mercial Bulletin. Fall Texas Is getting well
cleaned up, but combing stock In the vicinity
of 85 cents finds a ready sale. Inquiry for
good Turkey hair is also reported, but no
sales of moment are reported this week.
Orders have been placed for mohair recently
In Constantinople for U. S. A. accounts and
a considerable part of the business recently
done there was doubtless for the Boston
market, either directly or through Bradford
houses. Some business Is also reported for
this side In the Bradford market.
In England the situation appear to be
but little If any changed. Some yarns are
going out for the Continent, but no new
contracts of any moment seem to be under
GOOD DEMAND IN VEGETABLE MARKET
Favorable Weather Causes Activity on Front
With the weather favorable, trade in all
lines of fruits and vegetables continued
good. The street was well supplied with
nearly everything and prices were held
The only scarce article In the fruit line
-was ripe bananas. Four cars are due Mon
day. Front-street dealers have succeeded in
keeping frosted California oranges out of
the city and are offering fruit now that
has never been excelled- in quality. In
spite of this fact, however, the demand for
oranges continues slow. Dealers are at a
loss to explain the situation, as prices are
reasonable, in fact much lower than they
have been at certain times in the past.
Poultry Market Weaker.
Poultry prices weakened under the liberal
receipts of the past two days. The general
quotation on hens and Spring was 14 cents,
but some business under this figure was
reported to have been done. Dressed meats
The egg market was slow with a good
supply and a weak undertone.
Butter and cheese were fairly active and
unchanged In price

FIRST MONTH GOOD
Prosperity of Last Year Is
Continued Into 1913.
IRON AND STEEL TRADE BIG
Only Inability of Mills to Make
Prompt Deliveries Prevents Fur
ther Expansion Open Winter
Favorable for New Building:.
NEW YORK, Jan. 31. Dun's Review to
morrow will say:
The business expansion which began In
1913 was maintained steadily throughout
the first month of the new year, and re-
norts from various sections continue satis
factory. .Weather conditions affect distri
bution adversely In certain Industries and
tariff uncertainty is responsible ror con
servative buying In some lines. Labor trou
bles have interfered with the demand for
materials used In the manufacture of ciotn
Ing, but the general effect on the dry goods
trade Is comparatively align t.
The Iron and steel trade continues so
active that only the Inability of the mills
to make prompt delivery prevents further
expansion. The open Winter has been fa
vorable for new building and Important
construction worlc is in orosnect.
In view of the large excess of merchan
dise exports from this country in the last
year, the fact that we have recently sent
over $15,000,000 of gold out of the coun
try is regarded as an unusual departure.
Our own securities markets are quiet.
ACTIVITY AT LARGE TRADE CENTERS
Business Is Heaviest In Cereal-Producing
Regions Retail Lines Quiet.
NEW YORK, Jan. 31. Bradstreet'a to
morrow will say:
Though trade trenda are running in
favorable direction there is enough irregu
larity to divest the situation of uniformity.
Over and beyond all Is the "fact that the
larger centers of distribution continue to
do remarkably well, this being most potent
In cereal-nroducinff regions that were ia
vored by heavy crops. Comparatively few
places can boast of good seasonable retail
Monev is easy, funds are returning from
the interior in volume, and Western banks
are liberal buyers of commercial paper. The
stock market appears to have been neaviiy
oversold, but most of the activity has been
contributed by a few stocks.
Business failures for the week ending
January 30 were 361. which compares with
12 in the like week of 1912. There were
25 failures in Canada.

Union Pacific and Steel were marked up a

sagged back again and changes on the day
among the important stocks were small.
American Can stocks, which have been
the conspicuous feature of the week, were
active during the early part of the day and
the common rose to tl,i. The unofficial
statement of a plan for paying off the ac
cumulated dividends of nearly 3.1 per cent
on the preferred stock, through the issue of
$13,000,000 15-year 5 per cent debenture
bonds, was followed by a sharp break which
bore down the common to 48 and the pre
ferred from 129 to 124H.
The break was attributed to realising, al
though there was some bear selling on the
ground that the plan meant the conclusion
of the upward manipulation of these stocks,
and that debentures would entail a consid
erable Increase in the fixed charges of the

their low points they became quiet.

IMPROVEMENT OF BAY AIM
Port of Coos Commission Appropri
ates $50,000 Toward Work.
MARSHFIELD, Or., Jan. 31. Spe
cial. It isno longer good form to
say "slough" when referring to the
small waterways existing about Coos
Bay. at least the Port of Coos Bay has
so decided. "Inlet" is the word by
which the Commission desires small
waterways known. There was no of
ficial action on the question, but it
was stated that the word "slough"
was a misnomer, as its definition meant
a swamp, instead of a waterway.
Improvements of the bay and small
inlets were outlined by the Commission,
Including dredging and marking of
some of the channels, and a move to
ward a better waterfront.
An appropriation of $50,000 was made
to the Government to assist In widen
ing and deepening the inner channel,
and it was decided to center all efforts
on inner harbor work to commence
with the arrival here of a dredge.
Local bankers were present at the
meeting and stated that they desired
to handle the funds gained by the sale
of the 1300,000 worth of bonds but the
Commission will communicate with out
side financial houses.
