Market Little Affected by Govern
ment He ports.
TVashington. Oct. C.-The cotton report sssi:ed hy
; tr.e Department of Agriculture to-day shows that
I the average condition of the crop on September 23
I m 69.7 per cent, of normal. atraSnst 76.1 on August
, 2... 67.7 on September 23. 1307; 71.6 on September 23.
; 1906. and 67.6. the average of the last ten years
on September S.
The census bureau report on cotton cinning
Fhotvs 2.582.65S bales, counting round as half bales,
ginned from piwth of 190S to September 23. com-
PM<Bd Wlth 1 - 53:: - for l£o7. 2.057.25 T. for 1906, and
, ;.S."-5,716 for 1305. The number of active ginneries
> this year is 23.630, compared with 15.121 for 1907,
ra.416 for 1306. and 21.359 for 1905.
Prices in the local cotton market advanced three
to five points yesterday en the publication of ti;e
government reports. The figures were not quite
M high as had been expected, but were so close
j to the general expectations of the trade as to have
very little effect on the market. The publication
of the census bureau's report, giving the number
i of bales ginned up to September 25 as 2,552,655.
j while the trade had looked for 5.000.C00, caused tome
speculative longs to attempt to sell, but they found
a poor demand, and bears took advantage of the
situation to hammer the market. Prices broke
about 10 points in the midafternoon, but rallied
several points In the last hour on covering by
shorts. Brokers said that the government's fig
ures indicated a crop of 12.500.000 bales with aver
age frost, and 13,000.000 if frost holds off until after
November 1.
Trunk Line Roads Report Increased Business
in Handling Cereal Crops.
A perceptible improvement in the volume of
traffic moving- on the trunk lines is reported by
the traffic officers of those roads. This is eaid to
be particularly true as regards cereal crops, but
business la iron. coal, steel and manufactured
goods la also picking up. the traffic men say.
On the Pennsylvania lines east and west of
Pittsburg the number of idle cars at the present
time is approximately 60.000, as against 97,000 at
the worst of the depression. Officers of the Penn
sylvania Railroad say, however, that their own
traffic has not improved in the same proportion as
the decrease in the number of their idle cars.
Their explanation is that their cars have gone to
other l:nes, the greatest demand coming from
Western roads.
! Precious Metals Corporation and J. R. Allen
Offer to Purchase Consolidated Arizona.
The Precious Metals Corporation and John R.
AJlen. cf Xo. •»"• Wall street, have made an offer
to the receiver of the Consolidated Arizona. Smelt
! ing Company for the purchase of all of the smelt
i ing company's properties and mining claims. The
I Consolidated Arizona, which has outstajidin?
I 516.0C0.000 stock, and the smelting plant and copper
j mining- claims of which are at Ilumboldt. Ariz.,
I went into receivership in November, l'«'T. with
J obligations of more than &OOO.0Q& The failure was
due mainly to the severe .decline of all metal
prices. The National Bank of North America at
j the time of its failure held a. quantity of Consoli
dated Arizona paper as collateral for loan?. Charles
j W. Morse was also heavily interested as a stock- i
j holder.
The Precious Metals Corporation for the last six
months h.is beon acquiring various properties, but
it has had no smelting facilities. In addition to an
offer to buy the whole property, Mr. Allen and the
, Precious Metals Corporation have made a second
proposition to buy one-half of the smelting com- j
I pany, the other half to be taken by large financial :
■ intereFtE in New Ycrk.
Judgment by default for $ol,C<o was entered
yesterday in the County Clerk's office against the
San L«uis Mining Company, a West Virginia cor-
I poration. in favor of George B. Agnew. The
! amount is alleged to be due on two notes made by
-the company on November 20 and December 1.
ISO*;, payable to Myra B. Martin eighteen months
after date. The notes were transferred to Mr. j
Agnew. iyra B. Martin was formerly treasurer j
and secretary of the company.
j The San Luis Mining Company was incorporated ;
j in "U'est Virginia in November, 1300, end owns about
1 twelve hundred acres of land, embracing sixty
t four groups of claims. in Durango, Mexico, and a
! ranch of about forty thousand acres of timber and ,
j crazin? lands. The ore is tow grade copper. with, .
: gold and silver values. 1
A report that complications had arisen in the
! negotiations for the new £15,000,C«jO coffee loan of
i the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, was said yesterday
I by interested bankers to be unfounded, although
; it has not been decided how soon the loan will be
j brought out. TII3 National City Bank of New
; York, it was said, will head a syndicate which will
] take £2.000.000 of the loan, the First National Bank I
I also having a part in the underwriting.
Dun's Review says:
Seasonable weather stimulated retail trade ma
terially, and tho better distribution to consumers
brought a larger movement in wholesale and job
hins departments, but in most leading industries
there is still hesitation. Low stocks of merchan
,j lp( * necessitate urgency in replenishment when
dealers find retail buying on a normal scale. as is
the case in many sections of the country, but
preparations for distant requirements proceed cau
tiously although expressions of confidence are
heard' <-m all rides. On the whole, there Is improve
ment in mercantile collections, yet in many lines,
especially at the East irregularity is noted- ,
Structural work under consideration will take a
large tonnage of sieel and much lumber hen con
tracts are placed, but there is a disposition to de
fer actual building until after ejection. Many fac
tories have iurther increased the number i>t .ads
at work, an.l the last fortnightly report showed a
.lo<~reas» of 60.000 in idl^ freight cars, leaving only
170,000 gainst 413.000 at the worf point five months
aeo' Railway earnings fnr September were only
}- 7 per cent les.- than in the same month last year,
whereas tlie comparison for April showed a loss
r r i~ t> r*> r c«=m. These two statements Hhow a
no.^wcrthy improvement for the last five months.
Foretell oommerre at this port alone f^r the latent
week showed losses of 573.536 in exports and
£+3>'Si>l in imports--, as compared with W7. Ease
In the money market continues. October dividend
disbursements of about Jl.>.(X»V*»'> <-aiising scarcely
a fluctuation In <ali rates, and securities rose mod
erately although Inactive. Hank exrhanges at
New York tor the vt.-«-k were n.7 per cent smaller
than a year ago. wlUle at other leading citirs the
d<-cre2se~ amounted to 2L2 per cent.
Bradstreet's says:
Cooler weather is the mainspring of the mod
erate improvement in retail a.nd Jobl ing trade re
ported at most cities this week. Fall retail trad"
in' heavy drygoods. clothing and other wearing ap
i.are! hiis *-n:arg*-d. and t!:e movement of crops,
notably wheat and cotton, to market has heiped
collection* which are more nearly normal than for
move than a year past. Additionally helpful feat
ures have bec-n th'^ numerous fairs and festivals,
which have enlarged distribution locally at many
points While there an- reports of holding of
crops notably at th« South, where prices are much
lower than a year ago, the crop movement is lib
eral- a- a whole, visible supplies cf grain are rap
iiily' increasing owing to unprec. <jerit.-rl receipts,
a:id export trade in this line i- expanding heavily.
Reports from the late crops are good, aa a whole,
though lisht frosts have caught 5 per «.-ent of the
corn crop, and deterioration is indicated in the
cotton plant during September. The corn plant is
dry and an early movement to market is- indicated,
stimulated by high prices. Tl.e crop la smaller, but
tba merchantable supply will be larger. Southern
cotfen ginf arc running nieht and dry, nd the m
creased sinning capacity is shown by the gain of
Cfi per cent over last season. Tli*>r*> lias not been
••licuch moistjrr- afforded for fall seeding, and
Uie uimer wheat acreage will b<- smaller. Money
Im easy atrJ in abundant simply, but close scrutiny
of commercial pacer is still noted, Reports from
Industries an- rather better, as a whole. Railway

COFFEE — The (fee market snowed a ■Hgbtly
declintnif tendency during to-day's session arhti h was
probably due to !ok«t French cables anil reports of an
improved labor situati'-'n at t?amos. which v.ere acconv-
I'anied by a decided bulce in the Sao Paulo movement.
The market opened at an advance of •"> points on Janu
ary, but generally unchanged to 5 points lower, and closed
qutet, net. ■■.:;• hanged to lo points lower. Sales were re
ported of 11.256 bags.
Ther<* was some conflict of opinion regarding th» pan
to« strike iicnj. There were rumors that labor dif?:culties
ha.l L>een settled. People who -should b^ in a position to
know of any settlement at once claim that they had no
information en the subject. Pti!l other usually well
informed interests stated that their advices Indicated that
there had be<>n a partial settlenitnt uT labor difficulties,
ai."i that there had been some Improvement in the situa
tion, was certainly suggested by the fart that tlier* were
Sao Pau!o receipts cf 71.000 bags, Santos receipts fur

In wheat prices on the local exchange to-day, final
quotations showing 1 net losses of ~*c to IVic. Cora
and oats also closed weak, but provisions were firm.
With th» exemption cf one or two mild rallies th<»
wheat market was weak the entire* --vision. and
closed at almost th<» lowest point of the day. .
one time a fair rally was experienced on reported
heavj- sales of fl^ur by ilinneap*il"'« miners, anil
later prices »?ain made slight gains on a report
from Nfw York whic'i claimed that sixty-two boat
loads of wheat had been sold for export. This lat
ter report was later found to be an ...
th«» total export sales at New York being sriven ■*
only sixteen boatloads. I»- exporters claimexl ■•
actual bvsiness ha.l been dore and that Inquiries
were lixht. whi!e Duluth also reportefl a lack of
export demand. The market was also besirtahlr
affected by a liberal export movement from Argen

Corn was stronsr early in the Cay on continued;
excellent demand fcr cash grain by shippers. Later,
however, sentiment became bearish, partly on ac
count of the siurr.p in wheat an-! partly as I resuli
of rumors of an early movement oi th<» new crop.
One report r>»ceive.i to-day from Kassaa City
claimed that five carlo.vis of new corn had been.
received there from Oklahoma. wt!!<i a local con
