000 bags Cubas afloat, sold to tho
Warner Sugar Rcllnlng Company, at
2 7-16c cost and freight, 96 dcg., the
equivalent of 3.80c duty paid, with
moderate sales of Cubas, for second
half May, at 2c cost and freight for
96 dcg. test, the equivalent of 3.86c
duty paid. On Thursday Messrs. U.
11. Howell Son & Co. bought 4,200
bags Porto Rlcos, duo early next
week, at 3.86c delivered for 96 deg.
test, and 15,000 bags Cubas, for
prompt clearance, at 2 7-16c cost and
freight for 96 dcg. test, while tho
Revere Sugar Refining Company, of
Boston, bought 30,000 bags of Porto
Rlcos, for prompt shipment, at 3.83c

The sales today show nn Improved
tone to the market, the spot price
having advanced on tho last sale 3c
per hundred. At 'the closo we nnd
sellers asking a further advance, with
refiners not disposed to make any
further purchases before next wcok.
It Is not unusual to find a llttlo re
action, Just as we have had, follow
ing a large buying movement, as thoro
always are some sellers who do not
sell when refiners are buying In a
largo way, and, after tlio buying Is
over, theso sugars aro offered on an
unwilling market Tho undertone,
however, Is vory sound, as shown by
tho fact that the 'amount of sugar
sold at the concession In price has
been comparatively small, and the
disposition on the part of sellers gen
erally has been to withdraw their' of
ferings, when they saw tho market
showing a declining tendency. The
closing Is therefore firmer, with Indi
cations In favor of better prices next
week, nnd tho spot market on the
baals of 3.83c duty pnid for 96 dcg.

dcg. Muscovadocs, and 3.08c duty paid

world's visible stock Is 3,220,000 tons
against 3,000,000 tons last year.

tal stocks and afloats 3,331,186 tons.

Tho market on the Island Is quiet
but firm, and today's cablo reports
that the number of Centrals grinding
has been reduced to 82, or 16 less
than our agent reported last Tuesday.
There has been moro or less rain
In tho -different sections of tho Isl
and, but, on tho whole, tho weather
continues qulto favorable for grind
ing, nnd tho rains, whero they have
fallen, have been of great benefit to
tho country for tho next crop. Any
delays that have been caused In
grinding tho present crop aro 'Immaterial.
Llcht wires us today that the
wcalhcr Is very favorahlo for grow
ing beets. Tho tone of the market
is ' rather better, and tho closing Is
firm, on tho following basis:
May buyers, 10s 4d, equals 4.18c
duty paid Now York,
Juno buyers, 10s iW, equals 4.19c
duty paid Now York.
August buyers, 10s fMd, equals
4.20c duty paid New York.
October-December buyers, 9s 7V4d,
cquals.Olc duty paid Now York.
All reOnors quote on the basis of
4.90c, cash less 2 per cent, nnd as
somo of tho trado are running out of
sugar purchased under contract, a
little new business begins to show
Itself. Withdrawals on old contracts
have been. good, and that tho quan
tity of sugar now under contract Is
not largo for this tlmo of year. From
now on we can expect actual con
sumption to Increase steadily, as tho
small fruits and berries become avail
able, It would be advlsablo to watch
tho market conditions carefully, as
any upward tendency of tho raw
market from today's basis will moro
than likely be reflected In higher
prices for refined sugar. Tho Fed
eral Sugar Refining Company reports
oversales of from four to six dnys.
Messrs. Arbucklo Brothers announce
that thoy have arranged to sccuro re
fined sugar, and are now prepared to
fill all old contracts, as well as to
accept orders for new business.
