There ba Seen considerable interest at
tracted to the mat ket for dark and beary
styles by tha contest between a New York
combination and the buyer for the Spanish
contractor for the purchase of dark and
heavy lug and common to low medium
leaf. The competition has been brisk at
times, with alternating lull, but no reac
tion ba occurred from the advance, which
place those grades tl(gl.75 bigber tban tba
price of December I. A the detail of th
matter are understood, the Spanish con
tractor ia said to be behind aliout 7,000
hogshead in the supply for bi January
tender, and the New York comniuation con
trol about that quantity, which represent
practically the entire visible supply. Tbey
are, therefore, willing to accommodate tbe
contractor by transferring him tbla stock,
but if he refused to see the point they want
to make bim pay big price for what he
may buy elsewhere. It is obviously bit
privilege this year to deliver new tobacco
of a requisite grade.
