Conn., insurance compunlea. The losses
6y llooil In the Mlsaleatppi Valley are
/laced at $100,000,000, yet such Is the
general prosperity ?.t the country that
the money centres do not show a trem?
or. Slowness In collections Is report-1
ed from tin- eotton districts, as might
be expected while the price of cotton
>..is Increased In vlev the smaller
area to be planted thin year. With
the usual rains of th.- season, a large
srea of the recentlj submerged land
will l,e long in drying out. This will
make It too late in some cases for cot

the South at n greater rate than trans?

OF LEAF II
Bulk of Last Year's Crop Has
Been Sold?Market Some?
The loaf tobacco buyers of Virginia'
and North Carolina lmi.kcls are be?
ginning to realize that there is com?
paratively little left of the tobacco
crop of It'll yet to be marketed. Tho
receipt." of the raw leaf on tho various
markets are Browing less and less
every week, it Is estimated by some of
the close observers of general condi?
tions that not more than 16 per cent.'
Of last year's crop now remains In
the hands of the growers. Home think
The offerings for the past week In
most of the markets wer- oi the better
grades, for the farmers have not yet
gotten out of the old-time habit of
holding their best for the last. In the
blight markets some of the "best" of?
ferings commanded almost fancy
prices. In the dark markets, however,
there was an unaccountable slackness
in bidding, even on the better grades..
in Richmond about 500,000 pounds
of dark goods, mostly sun-cured, were
sold. The offerings consisted (speak?
ing of sun-curcdi of good tillers in
the main, with a large sprinkling of
rich wrappcns, and yet the market was
dull, und sellers were lathor disap?
pointed! at the prices. Tho top notch for
very good wrappers was $2."> per hun?
dred. Fillers, even of the rich and
' waxy kind, were considerably off. The
warehousemen arc unable to explain
the state of affairs, anil the buyers
j won't do It. even if they know how. j
The package dealers had rather slow,
business the past w.-.k The fuel Is!
I that the package dealers have hut'
! very little more lo do. An Investlga
! tlon shows that there In less old to?
bacco In the storage houses in Rich
inand tiian has been known at this time
of the year for a decade past. Thej
package men arc nearer sold out than
at any time within the period named.
Uy the. first of June there will prob-;
ably not be a hogshead of old stock
to be had In Richmond. At least that
is the information as I gather It from I
the warehousemen, the package deal-)
I ers and the storage men.
The loose leaf warehousemen look
I for smaller offerings this week. The
farmers have but little more leaf to
market, they are busy with new crops,
and then. loo. they ate a little ills-!
gusted at the dullness of the market. |
