against 3,441,775 tons last year at tho
Bnmo uneven dates. Tho decrcaso of

RAWS. Tho nows from Cuba,
which now controls tho situation, has
not been of sultlclcnt Importance to
chango tho crop out-turn prospects.
Delayed shipments ruled easier for tho
week, tho last part of May going at
3 3-3ZC. c. and f., equal to 4.45c,
against the highest bf 3 1-Sc. c. ami f.,
It Is evident that for two weeks past
tho feeling has been rather of disap
pointment on the part of sellers that
tho advance was not continued, than
ot any actual decline In tho market.
Even tho few nearby sugars, which
must eventually meet tho nwirkeU aro
Ftlll held at full-up prices In .the ex
pectation that they will bo Vanlvd.
There Is really no good reason for any
linportnnt downward reaction If hold
ers have tho strength to wait. '
As mentioned last week, the ques
tion of supply and demand to Septem
ber means further Imports of Euro
pean beet sugar. On this point our
Prog (Austria) correspondent writes:
"Concerning- tho beet BUgars suitable
Jor America, wo beg to Inform you
that nrtcr tho Inidgat In England hav
ing passed an Increased demand for
refined for tho United Kingdom is to
bo expected. In which case tho supply
of beet held by Austrian refineries
would not bu free for Bale.'" This let
ter explains Ilia cablo recently re
ceived by us from tho xnmo corres
pondent, that almost tho ontlro supply
of American kualltlcB In Austria (100,
(WO tons) Is held by rcflnors thcro, only
about 25,000 tons outside being free
to purchase for Amerlcn.
This 'may provo a nioro Important
featuro for higher prices later on than
Is now considered.
Germany writes that wo can have
800,000 tons beets, suitable for Amer
ica, if willing to pay 13s. for it

Acocnllng to an official report re

Slnco tho nbovo wns written, the
