When asked If the report would touch

What Latest Circular from New Yoik
Has To Say.
Lower Valoes h Braile Over Prodccllin of
' Coffee and What It Means-World's
Supply for October.
Catslo & Cooko, Ltd., 'havo Just re
ceived a coffco circular from W. H
Crossman & Dro of New York, under
dato oLOctober 21, 1899, n resumo of
which Is as follows:
Tho conditions which led to tho low
er values of coffco In Brazil" were pri
marily tho high prlcein the national
curency there, which shqwed such an
alluring pront to the plantorsthat they
Increased tho area under coffeo cultiva
tion to such an extent as to mako a
crop of 10,000,000 bags In Hlo and San
tos a natural result. Even this Is not
considered a- very largo crop under ox
Over production of coffeo differs con
siderably from over production or sur
plus of almost every other kind of sta
ple. Outside speculators probably do
not reallzo that surplus coffeo cannot
bo diverted Into other channels of con
sumption, llko corn and cotton nro lia
ble to when prices are very low. Even
at very low prices, tho consumption
of coffee cannot bo Increased to any
thing like tho extent of tho present en
ormous production, and there Is abso
lutely no way to lmnrovo values por-
manetly except by curtailment of pro
duction. This latter can bo brought
nbout In Brazil by doubling lip tho pre
sent sterling values of tho Mllrcls and
consequent relative reduction In th'e
curency price. Now, In view of finan
cial conditions In Brazil, when no tan-
glblo Improvement has resulted from
tho three years' moratorium In the
payment of their coupons, it is too
much to expect that Brazilian finances
can bo Improved sufficiently to double
iii tho present sterling rate for the
Mllrcls; tho more bo, as tho entlro cle
ment of plantcra and agriculturists are
stubornly opposed to an advance In tho
sterling rate. Therefore, a curtail
ment of production Is now contingent
upon constnnt lower prices for coffeo
In consuming countries until same
reach a busts that would forco the
Mllrets value In Brazil down from Its
present rnngo of about 40 mllrcls per
b;ic. to 30 mllrcls or less per bag.
Tho world's vlslblo supply of coffco
on October 1st was 8,030,550 bags, as
against tho highest figures of tho
world's vlslblo two years ago Novem

which turned out luvt: tnlllon bngs in
Itlo and Santos). During that month
of November tho lowest figures were
reached, and In Havre and Hamburg
they were several francs and pfennigs,
respectively, lower than they nro to
day, notwithstanding that in the mean
time an enormous addition has been
mado to tho vlslblo supply, and a very
largo IncrcaBO taken placo In tho stocks
In tho Interior (invisible supply); In
addition to which a financial weaken
ing has been In process among tho cof
feo trado In nil tho seaports of Kuropo
nnd tho United Stntcs, which certainly
has not tended to Increase tho carrying
It has ben claimed by Brazilian mer
chants that many largo planters wish
to continue raising large crops at low
prices, as It Is their desiro to try and
kill tho competition of other coffee
growing countries and thus acqulro a

is eutlrely Impracticable, as other
countries will learn how to practice

Necessity Is a good teacher to all
mankind, and Brazilians havo no mo
nopoly of that experience Planters in
Venezuela, Central America, WeBt In
dies and elsowhere can learn and pro
fit by It the same as Brazil, and In
splto of continued talk of decreased
plantations or smaller production of
coffeo In other countries than Brazil,
the total exports from such countries
last year were In excess of the provlous
season, notwithstanding tho small crop

In one section,- district -i.or country,
thero Is a compensating increase elso
where, so that the total of ono year Is
as largo as another, If not larger. Eco
nomic achievements of raising large
crops at low prices have been well
demonstrated In respect to sugar, cot
ton, corn, etc. Low prices resulting
from over production may remain
more or less permanent' and Brazil as
well as other coffee countries will
learn tho lesson to produce coffee at a
nrlce which heretofore has been con-
Wo can seo no way out of present
conditions except by patiently waiting
until tho production shows signs of de

The police certainly did excellent work
last month. Over $2000 was turned over
to the government after all the expenses of
the Police Department had been deducted.
