Wlllott & 0ra)'B Bugnr Trntlo Jour
nal of July 29 rciiorts uh follows on
thu raw mignr market:
Raws. Ccnlrlfugals nt tho closo
last neck were quoted at 3.95c. but
without sulleM at below 3.985c. for all
portion. The drat sales on Friday
to refiners weie on tho latter basis for
August shipment, say 0,000 bags.
This purchase strengthened tho mar
ket to the extent or bringing In a gen
crny buying movement, during which
Krime 250,000 bags were taken, includ
ing Culms and I'orto Itlcos afloat and
for prompt and for August shipment.
These purchases cleared the market
of all offerings at this price and since
then sellers havo been only willing to
cccc'i t l-32c. advance for modcrato
amounts. Tlio Important feature of
this business Is that these sales must
be largely made front thu present
stock In Cuba, say 160,000 tons at tho
six principal ports and outports antl,
naturally, futuro offerings from tho
balance of stocks will continue to bo
modurntc and at full up prices.
Tho additions to tho stock In Cuba
from tho remaining crop receipts will
scarcely exceed 2000 tons per week
and gradually becotno less.
The position, therefore, begins to In
dicate tho annual approach to consid
erable purchases from tho Java crop
which comes Into lino with our demand
In the United .States sooner than such
demand can reach purchases from the
beet crops. At present, Jnvns are hol'd
at slight advance owing to a stronger
European market and tho offerings
hero aro now lis. c. I. f. (4 09c.) for
early shipment, and 10s. lOHd. (4 0Cc.)
for later shipments, say g to 10 points
above Cuba centrifugals landed.
During tho week, much stronger
tone was shown In tho l.ondon mar
ket, with a sharp rise on Tnesdny of
2't. in nil positions of beet sugar and
lUd. In Java cano. This advanco scents
to bo duo qulto as much to tho activity
at that time In tho American market
ns to any new reports unfavorable to
tho Kuropenn beet crop. In fact, P, 0.
Debt's weekly cable to us says, that
the crop conditions havo now turned
favorable and evidence of this Is shown
In the later reaction today In beet
rugars In tho London market to, 10s.
7Hd. after 10s. 8'4. for two days past.
Theso slight fluctuations, however,
havo no special significance, but very
much attention must continue to ba
directed towards the European beet
crop which Is tho most Important feat
ure of tho entire sugar situation for
the next few months.
Yesterday a ratheiNntcrcstlng feat
uro was noted In our market In an In
creased demand from the United King
dom for San Domingo and other non
prlvllcged sugars at a basts parity
above our local markets.
At the close, the position Is, very
strong nt the present difference In par
ity between beets nnd centrifugals of
25c. per 100 pounds, and It is becoming
evident that this parity must sooner
or later be closed up, and present In
dications point to such closing by con
tinued, although gradual advanco In
our local markets.
Under reduced receipts again this
week, Unltqd States stocks decreased
