United Khmdom.-The United Kingdom is
now enjortag a period of fairly settled weath

the Thame a good deal ef the grain area,
ha been cleared and new eamplos are in
beittr supply at the various markets; the con
dition of msn of them, however. Is very far
from being satisfactory. In the Midlands and
more northerly districts of England harvest is
gttng Intof all ewiag. and last week Lln--oln
reported a satisfactory show of samples,
while Mippliea at Norwich were even described

average price being only 30s 5d per quarter,
a fall of Is 6d from the week previous, but
rtili fully Sa higher than the average of the

Rusria. A Fosnt-effieial report issued In St.
Petersburg hwt Saturday describes the "Winter
wr.rat crop an over-average; Spring wheat
medium; ry under average; oats and barley
over -average. This report, the came as all
other, gives tbe Eastern region, along the
Yotfta. as having the worst crops; In the
Southeast the crops are partly bad, while the
bt roealta have been obtained in the South
west. Including the Crimea and adjacent gov
ernments to the North. Caucasia and Poland.
This report certainly does not give one the
idea that famine is imminent, nor would one
epe-t that it would be necessary to restrict

on by the Minister of Finance, according te
a ri-ort printed In a St. Petersburg paper and

Stock Market's Acceptance of the

Bogle Causes. Drop.
NEW YORK. Sept. 2. Any detailed and ex
tended recital of today's brief aeseion ef the
sleek market would be profitless It had alt
the familiar ante-holiday symptoms, supertn
dueed by more than a week of liquidation and
proflt-taklng. Operations were en ' a very
light seale and profeoslonal In character, the
hesitating tone ef the list reflecting the un
certainty prevailing on the Board. The money
situation was about the only topic ef dto
emsion. and the appearance of the bank state
ment was awaited with xrac Interest and no
London reported a more cheerful tone and
sent over a higher range for Americans, while
Parle, which to said to be lending money here,
quoted hlgherpricen for rentes. Earlier prices
here were generally higher, the strongest fea
ture being Canadian Pacific. Union Pacific.
Southern Pacific. Atchison and Amalgamated
Copper. Yesterday's prejtsute against Ameri
can Smelting was renewed and weakness was
shown in. Tenneseee Coal and Colorado Fuel
& Iron. A moderate buying movement In some
of the active lsues met with free oiferingH of
stocks and prices receded.
The market, came almt to a standstill on
the Issuance ef the bank statement, which
showed a further decrease of reserves. The
loan decrease of about $7,706,000 was regarded
aa bat a partial reflection ef the week's liqui
dation, but the statement as a whole was re
celved with satisfaction and helped to pro
duce the firm closing.
For the first ceven months ef the year the
Pennsylvania Railroad reported substantial
net gains in earnings on lines directly operated
east and west of Flttrhurg, an well as en
leased lines. For July. Ullnols Central shows
a heavy net decrease, due doubtless to the
yellow fever plague. A compilation of traffic
returns, from all -the leading roads for the
half year shows the enormous Increase of
$70.000.0uO In great over the nae period last
year. Naturally, this improvement U less ap

tinued Increase of operating expenses and cost

With the virtual conclusion of peace be
tween Russia and Japan the weeK marked
in epoch in the financial and Industrial mar
kets of the world. How much. the great
bankers of Europe and America contributed
to this end may never be known, 'mere is
a popular notion however, that the per
suasive powers of finance overcame the arts
and wiles of diplomacy and that the last
word was spoken by those who believed both
combatants had reaehed a point dangerously
near financial exhaustion.
To the outsider and those speakers still
committed to higher prices, the stock mar
ket's acceptance of the peace news must
have been both surprising and disappointing.
The momentary spurt on Tuesday was but a
flash la the pan and represented scarcely
more than belated buying by those who
seemed to expect that an Immediate further
rise would follow the great event. On the
contrary, it gave the professional element
and Its followers an opportunity of which
they had partly availed themselves a few
days before. They "sold on the good news."
thereby showing strict observance of a tra
dition almost as old as Wall street.
This movement was followed by the ap
pearance of the "tight money bogey." which
brought lower priees all around and gave the
market the most serious setback It has
known since the June advance. Keen dis
appointment at the course of our market
was reported by London and othr conti
nental center which bought here at the first
announcement of peace, their owh ex
changes having closed for the day. A large
proportion of these purchases have come
back at general losses. If reports usually re
liable are to be believed. Europe's theory
that our market should have advanced was
not regarded as unreasonable, observers
there simply viewing the situation from a
mlaleadlng angle. In turn this market has
shown some surprise 'at the lukewarm man
ner la which European f exchanges, upon
calmer reflection, have taken the peace news.
The week was prolific of many Russian
and Japanese loan rumors, none of which
took tangible form and many of which have
since been denied. That both countries will
need money for. rehabilitation and develop
ment Is wt? known, but for the present the
subject Is dismissed with the assurance of a
high authority that Japan will hardly come
into the ;narkct this year, while Russia's
needs are most likely 'to be financed abroad.
In any event, unless conditions are radically
hanged. American' bankers will play leading
roles In a Russian loan. If for no 'ether pur
pose than that they will net be asked to
One of the greatest movements in copper
metal and incidentally In the copper shares
met with a reversal during the week. This
was partly the result of the ending of the
war in the Far East, whence have eome the
heaviest demands for the past year. Some
thing more than an Incident perhaps to the
decline of the copper stocks were the widely
circulated utterances of a New England
operator predicting dire disaster In the cop
per and kindred trades.
Many who have watched the operations of
the bank in their relations to the stock
market profes to see In the rumors of a pos
sible money stringency something more than
a mere phantom. They point, to the low re
serve, loss than one-fifth of those of a year
ago. and many millions bHew those of 1903.

SAN FRANCISCO. Cal.. Sept. 2. (Special.)
Most llns of California cured fruits have
passed into second hands and while prices
continue firm, the excitement has somewhat
abated. Packers who have paid "big" prices
are strong holders. Actual quotations for
apricots, peaches, pears, apples, etc. are dif
ficult to obtain aa dealers Ideas differ ac
cording to the position market and often
vary as much as a cent per pound. Some
new prunes have already gone forward. Deal
ers are holding off except on immediate re
quirements, but when they want prunes they
have to buy up for them. Spot raisins are
growing scarce and firm. Nothing la an
nounced yet In futures."

LARGE LOSS OF GASH

NEW YORK. Sept. 2. The Financier says
The striking feature of the official statement
of the New . York Associated Banks was the.
Important decrease In the cosh reserve - to
within $344.700 of the lowest of the year. A
large loss' of cash was foreshadowed during
the week by the almost dally transfers of
currency to Chicago and New Orleans, which
indicated heavy direct shipments, and the
extent ef the loco was accurately disclosed on
Friday by the estimates that were based upon
the traceable advances of money for the week.
It may be noted that the surplus reaerve i
h computed upon the basis of general deposit.
while the surplus, aa calculated upon the basis
of deposits less thoee of public funds against
which no reserve la required, according to the
ruling-of the Secretary of the Treasury, is a
little more than $2,000,000 greater, as shown
by the table which follows.
The cash lose indicated by the bank state
ment wa $7,108,530, whieh sum corresponds
very closely to the preliminary eotlmates. The
deposits were reduced in consequence of this
kH of cash and of $7,667,100 in loans by $14.
400.S0O. which, it may be observed, is only
$298,800 less than the sum of the reduetion in
loano and the Io;s of cash; therefore, the
statement made a balance. Deducting $3,624.
24)0. the amount of the reserve required against
general deposits from the above stated loeu of
cash, leaves $3,479,390 as the decrease fn sur
plus reserve. $5,408,875, which, as above .stat
ed, was within $344,700 of the lowest of the
year aa recorded March 18. Computed, how

$8,552,960 public funds, the surplus is

On March 18, when the surplus reserve was
at the lowest point of the year, the cash hold
ings were $1,617,000 greater than they were
