London hon dealers' circulars, dated No
vember 2 to 4. say:
Cattley. Grldley & Co. A very consider
able business continues to be done, prin
cipally In the best hops now obtainable.
The increasing scarcity pf strictly choice
lias drawn medium hops more Into prom
inence, and these having reached fair rel
ative values a good business has passed.
General currency remains unchanged. Pa
cific Coast hops are offered for delivery, but
at prices which do not compare favorably
with the E-ngllsh growth, and the quality
of the samoles to hand confirms the opin
ion that their crops are on the whole con
siderably inferior to last year,
Wild. Neame & Co. A fair Inquiry con
tinues for the best hops at firm rates; gen
eral trade In medium grades Is alow at
slightly easier values.
Thornton ft Manger Trade is slow, buy
er not being ready for the Serviceable me
dium sorts, and choice descriptions are
scarce. Growers generally are hot eagsr
sellers at prevailing prices.
"W. H. & H. Le May There Is no altera
tion to note on this market; the genera!
trade continues aulet. Choice colored hops
are still In reauest.
Hanger & Henley The general trade 1
low. but a steady inquiry continues for
choice Goldlngs. which are very scarce.
Worcester There was a great falling off
in the attendance at the local market oil
Saturday. Many growers have disposed of
their hops, and others, having sold part, are
not offering at all. in the hope ot better
prices later on. A good trade continues t
be done in all grades, but choicest hops are
scarce. Prices keep very firm; 2083 pockets
weighed last week.

Grain Chleags Market to
CHICAGO, Nov. 23. Fear of black rust
In Argentina caused wheat to rally sharply
In the last half hour of today's session.
Prices, after having been heavy most of
the time, closed strong, o to c net
higher. Other leading staples all finished
at a loss, compared with Saturday night;
corn c to. c, oats c to 33c and
provisions 5 to 15c.
Harvest advices from Argentina had been
at first decidedly against the bulls. The
ensuing upturn in prices here was accom
panied by admissions that seaboard ex
porters were after cash wheat in large
amounts and had taken 1.000,000 bushels
in . Chicago alone.
Official announcement that the 1014 wheat
crop in Kansas was the largest ever raised
by that state had a good deal td do with
depressing the market early. The bears
also had the advantage of an Increase ot
1.912,000 bushels In the visible supply, as
against .a falling off of 1,230,00 bushels
a year ago.
Elevator Belling made the corn market
Oars suffered from the closing out of
spreads between corn and oats; the latter
Provisions weakened under selling by
pickers, who took advaataca aa early
upturn, duo to higher prtces for hogs. It
was said more libera receipts at the yards
here, were expected later in the week.

NEW YORK. Nov. S3. That the Stock
Exchange IS Quite certain to reopen for
limited business before the end of the month
was the substance of the assurances received
today from responsible banking and brok
erage authorities. It was declared that a
majority of the banks with Wall Street con
nections now favor resumption of bond
trading, Bubject, of course, to price con
cessions. A canvass of the more important local
banking interests elicited conflicting opinion
respecting the probable extent of foreign
offerings pf American bonds in the event
bf an earlv renewal of . dealings. Some)
houses of prominence asserted that buying
orders on their books far exceeded offers
to sell, but the prospective demand. It was
added, was limited almost entirely to high-
Houses with German connections freely
admitted the possibility of heavy selling
orders .and Intimations along these lines
were also conveyed by bankers represent
