Local Dealers Report Trading
OUTLOOK MOST FAVORABLE
Easterners Are Beginning to Make
Inquiries Brewers' Contract
Stocks Nearly Exhausted
London Orders Expected.
The hop market Is still quiet, but prices re
main on a Ann baste, as the great majority of
growers refuse to be frightened by the bear
talk of the abort sellers and are holding for
ihe advance they arc 6ure will come before
Spring. Dealers look for an awakening of
the Eastern demand In the near future and
exporters say they have reason to believe that
England is aboutj to come In the market
again. In the event that the latter surmise
la true. It will mean an Inevitable rise In
prices as the available supply Is becoming
scanty. There are men in the trade willing
to wager large sums that the market will ad
vance In the next ton days, and none doubt
that higher prices will come after the turn
of the year. The Eastern brewers who have
been heMing back have been running on hops
f ecu red on contract, and this supply Is
known to be limited and will soon bo ex
hausted. Should the Eastern buyers come In
the market at the samo Umo that the English
brewers reappear, there will be a flurry be-r-lie
wMeh the excitement of last month will
fade into Inwlf-nlflcancc.
A report from Salem says that seven or eight
of the dealers there have orders now, though
for the past two weeks they had icen idle.
James Pincus, of Taooma, who was In the
rlty yesterday, has sold 63 bales at 23fc
rents and as ho never before was offered
ucta a high price for that grade, this Indi
cates that values are being fully maintained.
Tie Tacoma Neivs says of the hop market
Pincus & Son recoived the following cable
gram from Ihelr London correspondent this
morning: "The hop market Is steadier with
firmer feeling. Many growers are holding for
higher prices. We are not afraid of the
While for two or three weeks the local mar
ket has boon very inactive there is a. much
firmer feeling on the Pacific Coast, and yes
terday one lot of 100 bales was bought from a
grower In Oregon at 30i cents per pound. A
prominent grower In discussing the situa
Tao situation Is actually more dangerous
t brewers than it has been for many years,
even more risky than in the memorable year
of JSS2. Stocks of old hops are infinitesimal
as compared with what were .then on hand and
the consumption of beer has Increased by 25
per cent, while no calculation or device can
Increase the crop of this year. The outlook
lor growers who aro holding their crops is
bright. We need more hops than have been
grown, and all that are disposable are wanted
and badly wanted, too. And. although tho
present tactics of dealers seem to cloud over
and conceal tho strength of tho hopgrowors
position, and ' the danger of tho brewers'. It
is none tho less critical."

STRENGTH IS UNEVEN
STOCK MARKET AFFECTED BY IN
Steel Touches the Highest Record of
the Year on Account of News
From the Trade.
NEW YORK, Dec 3. Today's stock" mar
ket was strong, but tho strength was uneven
and a few of the most prominent stocks closed
the day at fractional declines from last night.
The strength in tho market grew out of condi
tions In the cotton, coaf, copper and lro& and
steel trade. Even in the groups affected by
these trades, there was some profit-taking, as
in Louisville & Nashville, which closed lower
after erratic fluctuations. "United States Steel
touched another high record for the year on
account of rumors of still higher advances In
prices of steel producteand the maintenance
of present prices for steel rails. Tho large
dividend declared on Boston & Montana, a
subsidiary etock, was the motive for the buy
ing of Amalgamated Copper. Outside of these
quarters of the market and of a list of spe
cialties, the movement was Irregular. Western
grain carriers especially showing a lagging
The bank statement carried over averages
from last week's gold shipments to Cuba, so
that tho cash dec re a so exceeded the estimates
made, but the $11,000,000 loan contraction
modified the effect so as to leave a nominal in
crease in the surplus reserve. In view of the
week's large operations involving heavy capi
tal outlay. It is evident that the trust com
panies' activities in tho money market are
taking over large accounts from tho banks.
Total sales of bonds, par value, $3, 040,00a
The conspicuous points of strength in this
week's stock market have been sufficient to
give tone to the whole market and have
sustained those securities In ,whlch realizing
was clearly in progress, so that such declines
as they have suffered have been limited to
small figures. The volume of business has
averaged nearly 1.500.000 shares a day, show
ing the sustained speculative interest in the
market. Records of the November transac
tions at the stock exchange show a total of
nearly 22,000.000 shares of stock which changed
hands during the month, which is more by
one-third than that of any previous Novem
ber In the history of the exchange The sales
of bonds also amounted to $256,853,500 par
value, made up largely of tesues selling below
par and of a more or less fpeoulatlve charac
ter by reajgn of convertible privileges, con
tingent interest claims or dependence on cam.
ings of collateral stocks of the same com
panies. Tho force of the tide of tho market
is sufficiently shown by these figures.
The cheerful view . of the outlook for Im
provement In business, the prospect for pros
perous ' harvests and the expanding demand
for nearly all classes of merchandise form the
broad underlying basis of the market, as from
the outset of the movement these Influences
have been supplemented by 'reports, mor6 or
less vague, of developments applying more
especially to Individual properties.
The supplies of the money market also have
proved ampin up to this time to care for the
needs of the large speculation and the growing
volume of new capital leaucs offering for ab
sorption. " These include an installment on the
Cuban loan floated in this country, the final
Installment on the new Southern Pacific pre
ferred stock, beside various railroad stock and
bond issues, the sale of which has been an
nounced during the week. It Is Interesting to
note In this connection that the individual
corporations for November of $1,000,000 capital
and over, while reaching an aggregate of over
$121,000,000 and thus rising considerably abovo
the aggregate for November for either last
year or tho year before, arc moro than half
accounted for by the new Chicago Subway
Company and the Now York, "Westchester &
Boston Railroad. It Is thus evident that the
present revival in tho market has not yet
stimulated anything like the activity in indi
vidual combination and formation of new com
panies which reached such huge proportions
in tho last great stock market boom.
Tho proportions of the new bond and stock
iffsues of railroads, both those already absorbed
and those known to be yet provided for, in
cluding American participation in the Japanese
and Cuban loans arc nevertheless a subject of
consideration in the financial future. It will
bo remembered that the late etate of indi
gestion in which the securities market was in
volved gave rise to very larfjfe borrowings on
short tlmo obligations and at high rates of in
terest by several of the great railroad cor
porations. It is to bo taken for granted that
the present absorptive power of the securities
market will bo taken advantage of to fund all
of these obligations. A considerable part of
them have already undergone this process of
Thero Is not lacking a widespread belief that
the present condition of the stock market has
beon generally fostered by the most powerful
financial Interests In the country to further the
flotation of these new capital Issues, both by
supporting prices in the etock market and by
guarding the money market from disturbance
and stringency. Confidence is unabated
among speculative enthusiasts that this effec
tive guardianship of the money and stock mar
kets will continue through the year and de
mands upon the money market, except tho spe
cial needs of that period, and which are rec
ognized, will be put under the restraining In
fluence which Is at work in tho market.
The event of the week with most bearing on
safeguarding the money supplies was the re
taxation of the continental demand for gold
and the easing off of foreign exchange rate.
The slump in cotton induced large foreign
buying of cotton and has replenished the sup
ply of foreign exchange. London continues to
sell stocks here, however. It Is expected that
remittances of subscriptions on the Cuban loan
will Involve further shipments of gold to Ha
vana either before or after January 1 and the
possibility is canvasued of gold going to
Japan for American subscriptions to the Jap
anese loan. The January requirements also
include the surrender of $10,000,000 of Gov

NEW YORK BANK STATEMENT.
Unexpected Decrease in Cash and Contrac
tion in Loans - and Deposits.
NEW YORK. Dec 3. The Financier says:
Tho striking features of the Now York
associated banks last week were a further
contraction of loans, an unexpected net de
crease in cash and an Important reduction
In deposits. As the result of a decreaso m
reserve requirements, the surplus, was slight
ly augmented. The contraction of $11,818.-
000 In loans was probably caused in part by
cancellation of those deals made by the
banks who had deposited preparatory to tho
disbursement of December interest. The net
loss of $3,025,900 in cash was surprising be
cause the preliminary estimates, which were
baked upon the traceable movements of
money during the week. Indicated a gain of
$661,100 In cash. The discrepancy between
the estimated gain and the officially report
ed loss may possibly be accounted for on the
theory that the banks counted as cash
coupons falling duo December 1 which had
been deposited for collection. After these
coupons were paid and the proceeds dis
tributed, the cash holdings of the banks
woub), if the coupons had been so counted.
bo reduced by tho amount of -that item. De
posits decreased $16,334,400. which' closely
corresponded with tho sum of the reduction
in loans and of the loss of cash: therefore.
t.fmnnt showed a good balance. Be
causa of the reduction in deposits, reserve
requirements were decreased $4,083,600, de
ducting from which the loss of cash left
i.uO as the Increase In the surplus re
serve. Computed upon the basis of deposits
less those of $23,33S,200 public funds, the
surplus Is $14,372,375. It may bo noted that
the reduction of . loans last week makes
total of $51,063,700. since October 29, the loss
of cash makes $27,393,400, and the decreaso
in deposits $76,556,100 since tho abovo date.

Agricultural Department's report today tho

Excitement at New York.
NEW YORK. Dec 2. Tho Government esti
mate for the cotton crop, placing the yield at
12.162,090 bales, issued today, was a surprise
to more people, perhaps, than any Government
report of recent years. While a few of the
more extreme bears had been talking 12.000,000
bales or. over, the average opinion even in
bearish circles locally was that the Govern
ment estimate would be under that figure.
The announcement was followed by another
sensational break In prices. The decline that
has been In progress now for over a -month
and carried the market down from 11 cents to
8 cents proved insufficient in the estimation
of the trade to fully reflect the new condition
of affairs, and a crop of the size reported.
There was undoubtedly a big short Interest
In the market, but. In spite of covering, prices
declined nearly -ccnt In less than halt an
hour of trading. The market was very excited,
with trading exceedingly active.

NEW ORLEANS. Dec. 3. A heavy slump
marked the announcement of the bureau report
on the cotton exchange today, and a wild
scene ensued. Prices fell from 4S to 52 points
within a few minutes, representing about $2.50
per bale. Many excited country bankers were
on the floor. They had been lending" money
on a basis of 8 cents and above. January
tumbled to 7.88c, March to 8.02c and May to

ALL FACTORS STRENGTHENING.
Gradual Advance -in Wheats Prices at
CHICAGO, Dec 3. Among thf!s factor. that

a decrease in world's shipments, and the wheat
market opened firm wlth May up ?3c at
$1.101.10. France was asserted to bo on
an importing basis-and wan reported as hav

tralian cargoes. For the momont, however.
tho domestic situation appeared rather less
bullish, snow having fallen in some sections
of tho AVlnter wheat country- Receipts in tho
Northwest also were somewhat larger than
last week. In May, tradors were Inclined to
Ignore foreign conditions and were quite lib
eral sellers early. The result was a reaction
4n prices. May declining to $1.10. But the
weakness was only temporary. The anxiety
regarding the Winter wheat crop was in
creased by the Ohio report, which mado the
conditlor of growing wheat In that state 75,
a low of 12 points within a month. This
showing was quite enough to create consider
able apprehension regarding the general effect
of the prevailing- weatfier. Throughout tho
last half of .tho session sentiment in the pit
was bullish and prices gradually advanced.

California Supply Only Half That of a Year
SAN FRANCISCO. Dec 3. (Special.) Au
thorities variously estimate the holdings of
prunes In California at 600 to 800 carloads, or
only about half the quantity held a year ago.
Stocks are steadily being reduced, and large
sizes are somewhat scarce Prices have a
firm tendency. Export shipments continue The
raisin nfarket is quieter, as the Eastern, trado
has hardly accepted the recently advanced
prices, though, tho latter appear warranted
by conditions, and no element of weakness
exists. Fancy, seeded is very firm. Business
in other dried fruits Is quieter, but quotations
are firm. In the absenco of any largo stocks.
Although the open market Is overcrowded
with oranges, not enough auction stock may
arrive for the public sales, to commence next
week, and salesrooms are by no means ready.
Prices for all citrus fruits continue weak.
Five oarloads of apples, including one from
Colorado, arrived, and nearly all grades remain
depressed. Grapes were dull and nominal.
Tropical fruits were quiet.
Fancy potatoes wero In moderate supply and
firm. Other grades were quiet and weak, with
stocks large. Sweets were steady. Onions
were firm, but the demand was not urgent.
Garden vegetables wore la fair supply and
Speculative prices for wheat had a small
advance following Chicago. Barley -was easier
for futures and snot. Receipts of barley were
large, and chiefly for warehousing against De
