most any nort of inathematieal calcula

predicated, and there was the natural
divergence of opinion. But the bears had
tho be?t> of the argument, so far as the
action of the market was concerned, and
were he'.ped by estimates that the foreign
cropa wlll be 700.OJ0 bales larger than last
year. Some weak long lines have b? en
dumped, and a laek of outside specula
tlon. which ls not attracted to the market
around 134 to 14 cents, haa also affected
the general sentiment. The close of the

Coffee Oeclining.
Higher European mark'te, adverae crop
condition reports from Brazll, with at
times higher cost and frelght flgure*. gave
coffee a sembiance of firmness at times,
but the general trend has been downward.
with reports ot damage to the Brazliian
crop either disregarded or discounted. The
trouble has been that alarmlng reports
have been contradlcted by the eastnass
of Brazillan markets and the evldent
anxlety of Brazillan holders to market
their stock even at concessions. This
I anxiety haa been credlted to flnancial
! weakness. although lt can not be over
lookad that prlmary recelpts would have

Merchants Plan Agitation for

OLD EDIFICE INADEQUATF
Land Occupied by Government
Would Be Applied to Exten
sion of City Hall Park at
Profitof $5,000,000.
The Merchants' As?o-iation at tl.e ?
regular sesslon of Oongress wlll ura ?
that adeqnate provision he BBBda fo
new postofflce building ln.Manhattan. 'Ih ?
site the association advo.-ates Is tl.e .

to buy, raatOfiag the present site pf tba
Postofflce to the Ctty Hall I'ark
lr is polnted out that a new pi.stofr.ee
must inevitably be built and that aii de
lays will tend only to add us.-less ?-\
pense. The land now cceupied by th"
Postoffice bulldlng; is assessed at more
tban tWloa the amount of the Aator
House site, and lf the ferieral govern
rnent should take over the hotel plot
from the city and erect thereon a mod?
ern postoffh a bafldlBg the structure
would occupy property of less than hal'
the assessed value. whlle the eity would
come Into possession of about f*>,000,i"O)
worth of land over the value of the prop
erty lt would glve.
The assoclation has suggested the feaal
blllty of the purchase of the Astor House
site by the city and the locatlon of tha
new postofflce ti.ere. The area of tha
present site !-< UMt square feet and the|
assessment upon the land ls O.rW.COO. Th*
area of the Astor llouse eite. wlth con
tlguous plots belonging to Wllllam Wal?
dorf Astor, ls ??,701 square feet, assessed
upnn the land at H.57O.00O.
No question exlsts as to tha necessttr
of erectlng a new postofBce building wlt.*i
the least possible dilay. The present
building has long been out of date. ?Ln4
the ever lncreaslng amount of buslnesa
done within Its walls ls aceomp'.lshed un
d.-r dlfflcultlee probably found nowhere
else ln the country.
Owlng to this lnere.se in business. lt
is necessary to expend large suma each
year l7i alteratlons and repalrs, which at
b'-st are only t<mporary, because of the
eertainty that a new bulldlng soon must
be built
The municipal authorities are strong!."
ln favor of removlng the Postofflce from
its praaent site in City Hall Fark and |a>
?torlag the federal site to tha park area.
Mayor Gaynor went to Wa.-hlns.ton laM
fear at the head of a d. legation tO itrge

soclation that the city is flpaflBlIni .' I
