Much of yesterday's depression of for

those represented in London, but In well

maximum. Prospects for the new crop
f Argentina are excellent and Indications
point to a good out-turn. Old supplies of

necessary tonnage. Oats trade is very
quiet. American clipped are held at prices

coffee futures opened at an advance of
5 to 10 points on covering promoted by
advances in milreis prices at Santos and
talk of a firmer technical position as

ports, however, and the market eased off
during the afternoon under renewed liqui
dation accompanied by reports of slight
ly easier firm offers from Santos. May
