STOCK RISE HALTS
Recent Advance Invites Sales
to Take Profits.
NET CHANGES ARE SMALL
Depression of European Markets,
Owing; to Balkan Situation, Tend"
to Check Tpward Movement in
Street Call Money Easier.
NEW YORK. April I. Th rise In stocks
waa halted today. In the early trading
prices were scaled down moderately, but
later there was a general recovery and net
charges were small. The advanc. of the last
ten days, running from 6 to 10 points In
many cases, had reached sufficient propor
tions to Invite rralixtng sales, which were
largely responsible for Uie action of th
Depression of European markets tended to
check the advance here. Reviving appre
hensions as to th. Balkan situation, owing
to the attitude of Montenegro, made It
plain that th foreign stluatlon still must
b. taken Into consideration.
Call money rales relaxed considerably from
th. high rates of th preceding two day.
and quotations for tlm. funds and commer
cial paper were shaded.
Can. Rubber and the local traction stocks
wer In demand at rising prices.
Th bond market was less active and
movement were Irregular. Total sales, par
value, $3,60,000. Panama 3s coupon de
clined on call.

Talks of Conddtlons.
TACOMA. Wash.. April 2. (Special.)
Pierce County growers have received from
last year's hop crop S42O.O00, according to
James Pincus, well known dealer ana
Practically 1400 bales ar left In first
hands in this state now, when hops axe
worth about 13 cents a pound.
"Besides the 14O0 bales In Washington.
I estimate that there ar fully 5000 bales
in first hands In Oregon; 6000 bales In Cal
ifornia and 1000 bales In New York, the
only states in th Union growing hops,
continued Mr. Plncns.
"At tho present tlm. th dealers are
carrying practically no stocks.
"Europe Is still buying from the United
States, as there is none left on the conti
nent. There are some left, however. In first
hands In England. I have Just received a
cablegram stating the foreign market Is
h,.ii with little demand for 1013 hops.
Contracts for the coming crop ara being
made now on the basis of 15 cents a pound.
"At th present time not a single bale
of hops Is owned by a grower In the Puyal
ltrp Valley, the local men having sold their
holdings last Kail at good prices.
In tills state there are produced 40.0OO
bales, valued at about S35 a bale. Of this
amount Western Washington grew about
Its 00 bales, valued at 5hO,000. In the
Puyalltrp and Roy districts I figure that .o
