In the current mrrhpr of notes on naval prog ress hy Captain C. D. Sigshee, Chief of the IntellVence Office, the United States stands fourth In tonnage among the na val powers. In making th!a calculation, however, there are omitted ohso'ete ships, receiv ing uhlps, Fa'l'ne and training ships. It is est'mated that if the three latter classes were included tre United States would hi th'rd among the powers. Lieu tenant W. L Howard of the Intelligence Office, U. S.

I'amburg 3,000 tons of raw beet sugar shipped to America from Hamburg and Brerrtn th.s werk: 3,000 tons eigagemei)'s; ioo tons of refined shipped. PAWS. Receipts remain at al out 2.". (w tons per week, as we expected, but which at present is below requirements for meltings, and total stocks are now at 3',230 tors, the lowest point since Noven.ter 2, U93, when stocks were only 16,594 tore. However, as we have now entered the new sugar campaign, the corner in supplies may be cons dered broken and s bundance of beet sugar will be available, if not of cane also. With increased offe: ngrg a decline to 4.75c for 96 degree test centrifugals is probable at any time. T! tSe changed conditions of the sugar trada in Oc ober have been forecasted by us f r some time past. The trade will now be done In declining tendencies instead of advancing tendencies, as heretofore. The market is likely to be quite unsettled for a while, until the normal basis for the campaign of ltOO-1101 is more clearly sern. It is possible that the pendulum may swing too far downward for a time. We are not believers In any great average reduction for the full campaign, however. Centrifugals were previously sold, to arrive October 15th to 30th, equal to 4.69c to 4.75c. Some Peruvian centrifugals, due to arrive end of October, are offering at equal to 4.75c. Demeraras for Immediate shipment have just been sold at 3 l-16c, c. and f., equal to 4.76c duty paid, and now few, if any more for October shipment are obtainable. Nearlysall Javas for October-November shipment are placed. The quantity of Javas available for the bal ance of this year is much less than for the same time last year. Our correspond eice shows that American refiners have been buying heavily of new crop beet sugars. October shipment of beet to arrive here in November, would cost on piesent quotations equal to 4.43c for centrifugals. The Louisiana crop, which is double that of last year, Is beginning to ccme to market, and European crop ac vices are more favorable, therefore we look for somewhat lower prices in Europe. The change in the abnormal spot quotations for centrifugals has begun, a sale of sugars nearly due having been made at 4.91c and further declines will follow until a normal basis is reached. As showing how history repeats itself, our records state that on November 2d, 1893, when stocks were the lowest, raw sugars were sold at 5-8c decline from the quotations of a week previous, the drop being due to anticipation of large receipts of new crop sugars. REFINED. Refiners did not wait for the coming decline in raw sugars before reducing the price of their product. We have anticipated the first cut in prices would be l-4c per pound, but buyers were scarcely prepared for the actual reduc tion of 40 points which came on Wednesday. All above l-4c per pound must be due to something beyond trade requirements, viz., a new outbreak of hostilities between refiners. The Arbuckle refinery attempted to establish a price of 5c per 100 pounds for their product below the A. S. R. Co.'s list price. If this move had passed unnoticed the Arbuckle could have run full and sold all its product at a profit, while the A. S. R. Co. held the umbrella, but the A. S. R. Co. made a vio lent second cut of l-4c per pound, carrying the price of refined to but little above the cost of production and Arbuckles evidently did not care for the trade at any lower basis, so prices rest at a level for all refiners at 5.75c list for granulated, equal to 5.49c net cash. The notable feature of these movements is that the Ar buckle is evidently to be forced into line to maintain prices and to take its share of the reduced production during the off season of the year now at hand. The demand is only' on the hand to mouth basis, notwithstanding the heavy cut in prices, buyers being afraid to take on any supplies while the market Is In such unsettled condition. This rather suits the refiners at the moment, however, be-, cause they would be unable to meet any large demand, if It came while supplies of raws are so small. Around the first of November, 1893, when stocks were the lowest, prices of refined declined 3-8c, and, a week later, l-4c further, in anticipa tion of the arrival of new crop sugars. SUGAR IN WALL STREET. The usual rally in a declining market carried sugar stock to $118 1-2, from where it began to decline, and touched SU4 1-8 on an nouncement of first cuts in prices of sugar. As stated elsewhere, the appearance of these cuts, made unnecessarily, is quite ominous for the sugar stock. In fact, it evidently depends on the Arbuckle now whether business shall be done at a loss or profit. The situation must be considered critical and we can renew the ad vice so persistently given that the selling of sugar common stock will save holders from large losses in the near future. The price has been unduly maintained by a series of influences which will not continue. QUEENSLAND. Mackay Journal says: "The crushing season Is now in full sw!ng and few mills have not been put in motion. The weather has been quite suitaMe for harvesting operations, though not so fine as to Interfere with the grewth of the young canes. From the northern end of the colony to Mackay, the winter has been exceptionally mild, andthough in the more southern districts even a mild winter does not mean entire absence of frost or any great Increase In the standing crops, In the rest of the colony it spells an advance on previous est'mates. However, In the south, heavy frosts have again done much damage and the cane is being milled as fast as possible. That at present our figures, given last month, must stand, is obvious, until we have fuller information as to the q -a'ity of the cane now going through the rollers. With a very mild winter, the dersity of the Juice must of necessity be low. but this will probably remedy it pelf later. In the meanwhile crushing goes on apace, much according to our an ticipations, but happily with every prospect that this year the cane will prove, even where scarce, of good quality. As to the young crops, it is sufficient to say that on ell sides additional areas have been planted, ar.d in few places has the weather been less than perfect " ' NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 28, 1900. Sugar Weekly Summary Today was marked by the arrival and sale of the first consignment of new centrifugal sugar for tlr? soascn 1900,if01. This lot classed Good Prime Y. C. and consisted of 2G barrels from the Woodland plantation of Messrs. J. L. Ory & Co., St. John Parish, La., con signed to Messrs. T. Lanaur's Sons and was bought by J. W. Blackman, Jr., at 6 1.4c. With the above exception nothing of Intercut has transpired during this week in our market, which has otherwise remained dull and listless, receipts be ing scanty. Refined ruled quiet throughout at 6.00 net cash for granulated. Re ceipts for the week were 511 barrels, against 732 last week and 883 same week last year. Total to dat. 2.920 barrels, against 6,61)9 last year. PORTO RICO CROP.-Government Weather Report for week ending September 15th: Very heavy rains prevailed on, Sunday, 9th, in the vicinity of Bayamon. At Ct merio, on the 14th, 2.25 Inches of rain occurred in two hours. With these ex ceptions the rainfall throughout the island was um;sua'ly light. Generally warm wea'her prevailed. Cane continued its favorable growth, the warm, sultry weath er foKowing the previous rains being very beneficial. Highest temperature, 87.8 degrees; lowest temperature, 74. S degrees CUBA CROP. Government Weather Report for week ending September 22: Rainfall Rains amounting to less than one inch in the eastern half of the Island, and one-half Inch In the western half, for the week were the rule; the only sta tions reporting greater amounts than these were In portions of southwest Matan zas, western Santa Clara and northeast Puerto Principe. A few stations reported no rainfall at all during the week. Cane This staple generally is In an excellent condition, except in portions of northwest Santa Clara where new cane greatly needs much more rain, and a heavy yield is everywhere indicated. Planting has begun or continues in northeast Havana, Matanzas, Santa Clara, Puerto Principe and Santiago, in northwest Santa C'ara spring eane and ratoons not cut 1st season are sprouting along their stalks; weeding and cultivating and preparation of ground actively continue, and In parts excessive moisture in the groun . impedes the preparation of tne ground for winter planting. In southwest Santa Clara the ground conserves ample rrclsture; extensive fall plantings are being made under favorable conditions; cross plowing and furrowing .continue; winter plantings are being made In soil pre pared after the recent rains, and the canes which were blown down by the storm of the 5th have partially resumed an upright position and are In good condition. Preparation of ground continues In northeast Santa Clara and Santiago.
