News From That Country
- Anxiously Awaited.
Wheat Output of the South American
.Republic Is the Leading Factor,
at Present, in the
The great factor in the wheat market just
now is the Argentine crop, and the eyes of
grain dealers in the United States and Europe
are upon that country. "While it is generally
conceded that the South American country has
the largest crop in Its history, yet reports have
been received of heavy rains la the . wheat
belt In the last few days, though no definite
eftlmate has been made of the damage done.
The crop of Argentina has been Increasing
rapidly during -the pact few years. Last year
It amounted to over 100,000,000 bushels. This
year Ihe acreage Is quoted at 12,250,000, which
with an average crop of 13 bushels to the
acre would make the crop over 158,000,000
bushels. That -Is about the crop figured on,
providing nothing' occurs to reduce it. The
country Is long and narrow and Is subject to
heavy rains. Harvest Is well under way in a
large part of the territory now and heavy rains
at this time might lower the yield by a third
or more. Owing to the lnaccessablllty of the
wheat fields and the lack of reliable sources
of news it Is almost impossible to get any In
formation that Is of value.
The largest share of the Argentine crop Is
exported. The country has only bo me 8,000,000
people and the home consumption cannot be
over 40,000,000 bushels, so It is easily under
stood why the marketsof the world anxiously
await news from there. Heavy damages to
the crop would have a considerable effect on
the available wheat of the world.
Argentina, is the only South American coun
try producing cereals for export. Thirty years
ago it imported cereals from the United States,
from Chile, and even from Turkey, but in 1002
the value of the quantity exported was $G5,
000,000, and according to all -calculations It
will exceed 5100.000,000 in 1004.
The grain elevators, which are already be
ginning to work, and the mills which make
the flour, encourage the hope that the quality
of this article will be Improved, from being
more completely cleared of impurities and be
cause the grain will reach the markets drier
and in better condition, generally; besides, the
expenses of bags will be saved.

Lively Demand Also for Other Active
Shares Bank Statement Re
garded as Favorable.
NEW YORK, Nov. 20. Initial transactions
In today's stock market were made up large
ly of United States Steel issues, but before
the end of the brief session business In
creased In volunre and' the market broad
ened until It embraced a great number of
standard stocks. At the outset large blocks
of Steel common and preferred came out
at fractional advances and the bonds also
gained. There were slight advances in such
specialties as Colorado Fuel. Pressed 4teel
Car. and American Locomotive Amalgam
ated Copper responded to buying by houses
supposed to represent Boston interests. Tua
list fluctuated for a brief period, but short
ly before the publication of the bank state
ment a heavy buying movement set In.
There was a lively demand for Union Pacific
Southern Pacific, Missouri Pacific, Southern
Railway, Bock Island, Louisville & Nash
ville. Pennsylvania and others in the same
group. London bought Union Patlflc and
Southern Pacific, and the extensive pur
chases of Erie were probably for the ac
count of the professional interest. The
market remained active to the close and
prices of many Issues were then the best of
the day.
The bank statement was regarded as fa
vorable in the sense that the loan decrease
as well as the cash loss showed better than
had been expected. An Inspection of the
dally report of the Associated Backs re
flects the recent sales of city bonds. Three
banks which acted for the purchasers of
these bonds the National Bank of Com
merce. Chase National Bank and the Fourth
National Bank, reported balances of mora
than $21,000,000, while the National City
Bank, a -city depository, had . a credit of
over $6,500,000.
New" high prices were registered by the
Steel issues. Atchison made a slight gain
in spite of its poor October report. Great
Northern preferred advanced 7 points, mak
ing a 17-point gain in two days. Total
bonds sales for the day, par value, were
TJ10 most striking feature of the week was
heavy dealings and Increasing high prices
of the securities of the United States Steel
Corporation. It is generally believed that
some plan involving the further conversion
of Steel preferred Into the sinking fund 5
per cent bond is contemplated. Evidence ac
cumulated that the lrb and steel trade are
steadily Improving. Some of the other high
ly speculative Issues also hod their gains
of the past week. The earnings of new Is
sues of securities, as exemplified In the sale
of blocks of Union Pacific Rock Island, Chi
cago, Burlington & Qulncy, Pennsylvania
and Marquette refunding bonds and other
less important Issues, revived discussion of
refunding plans long dormant and of con
solidations of groups of subsidiary com'
panles of some of the great railroad sys
tems for convenience or financial policy.
This marks clearly the passing of the era
of Indigestion in the securities market, which
occasioned borrowing of enormous amounts
by Pennsylvania, New York Central and
other powerful corporations during the
course of last year, and for which high
rates of interest was paid. These borrow
lngs were made necessary to keep alive
projects already entered upon and which
would have involved heavy losses by inter
ruption. The ready sale of these securities
is perhaps the best best evidence of the con
fidence and of the absorptive power of the
Notwithstanding the long immunity of the
money market from the many declines in
the cash supplies, the rates of interest for
the week have shown that the usual Fall
influences arc not whoUy to be escaped. The
decrease of over $60,000,000 In the item of
deposits of the banks reveals the source of
the supply of stock market borrowing dur
ing the period from September 9 to No
vember 10, while the loan Item of the banks
was actually contracting some $20,000,000.
Although the legal surplus of the banks is
thus protected by the trust companies, the
Inroad upon the ultimate reserves is of ef
fect on sentiment and curbs the borrowing
disposition in the conservative financial
world. It is noteworthy that the bank clear
ings all over the country show an increase
of oyer 50 per cent, compared with the some
week last year. The eager demand of Con
tinental Europe for our gold yet remains un
defined in its extent. It is expected, also.
that the movement of the corn crop, al
though It was belated, will make large Im
provements when it develops. Beyond He
the year-end demands to be considered, and
the Influence of the result of funds alter
the turn of the year la to bo modified by
the call of the Secretary of the Treasury for
surrender of some $10,000,000 of Government
deposits on January 10.

Daily Treasury Statement.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 26. Today's statement

Decrease In Loans, Deposits and Reserves
and Loss ot Cash.
NEW YORK, Nov. 26. The Financier cays:
The official statement of the New York as
sociated banks showed, as the most striking
changes compared with the previous week, an
Important decrease In loans, though eomewhat
smaller than was expected, a loss of cash
closely corresponding with that which was In
dicated by the estimates that were based
upon the known movements of money, a de
crease in deposits by an amount very nearly
agreeing with the sum of the reduction In loans
and the loss of cash, and a decrease in sur
plus reserve to a total more than $1,000,000 be
low the amount of the beginning ot the year.
The loaa contraction was $10,289,800. making
$39,765,700 since October 29. In which period
there has been a buoyant speculation in the
stock market, calling logically for expansion
rather than contraction. It Is quite likely.
however, that the trust companies are carry
ing a larger volume of loans. The loss of cash
was $5,124,600 net, $1,082,500 lees than the
cellmates, but the discrepancy was doubtless
due to the- system of bank averages and also
to the inclusion In the estimates of withdraw
als of gold for export which occurred on the
last day of the previous bank week. The loss
of cash reported by the banks makes a total
since October 29 ot $23,467,700. The deposits
were decreased last week by $15,665,100. mak
ing $60,221,700 since tho above-mentioned date,
Estimated upon the basis of deposits, lea3
those of $23,373,800 public funds, the surplus
Is $14,224,825. The surplus against general
deposits a .year ago was, it may be noted.
The statement of averages of the clearing
house banks of this city for the five days of
this week shows:
