Dried Fruit in New York.
The New York Commercial says:
"After throe days' suspension of business
trade opened in iairly liberal volume. The:.
was a considerable accumulation of mail orders
to be filled and numerous Inquiries to be an
swered. A few buyers were in market, having
come to the celebration and stayed over to dc
some necessary business. Actual sales, on th(
average, wore small, but there was a bettei
feeling indicated, and the impression was
given that actual transactions will be target
and prices belter on most descriptions. A con
siderable number of visitors are expected tc
the yacht races who will make their purchase»
of dried fruits before they return.
"Raisins are the most active, and spot good;
are selling readily at lull quotations. Th*
short crop In California and the total cleaning
up of the market are expected to compel heav.
sales, notwithstanding the high prices. Buyer;
feel safer in taking, liberal supplies than ihej
did last year, because the association ha;
proven Itself capable of controlling the situa
tion and fulfilling its promises to both grower:
and buyers.
"Pruie-s are not selling very freely as yet
but there is more Inquiry and the outlook foi
good trade is more premising, lt Is said thai
negotiations are in progress for two or thro
large blocks, but the particulars of the trans
actions have not been given out. It is con
ceded that sales will be heavy, once they be
gin, and prices are quite likely to rule better.
.'Peaches are in better position, but the mar
ket is still weak and unsatisfactory to holders
The Western demand for small sizes is not ai
strong as last week, but there are still con
siderable sales at full previous quotations. Th.
entire yield is not yet known, but it is very
large, and prices will do little better until tht
uncertainty is ended.
"AprlcdtS are firm, and In view of small sup
plies prices tend up.ward. Exporters contlnu.
to show considerable interest, and domestic
buyers are also seeking larger supplies. The
result is additional firmness In prices and a
probability that an advance will be made short
ly on tlie most wanted grades."

EASTERN MARKETS.
New York Stock Market.
NEW TORK, Oct. 9.— Buying by arbitrage
houses for London account made the highest
prices for the day in the general list at the
opening, As soon as that demand was satis
fied the market began to drag. There was some
support when prices of the iron and steel stocks
were bid up, but the fact was obvious that,
there was no vital demand for securities, 'I '1
the downward drift was renewed. By the close
of the day the gains were wiped out except In
a few cases. Steel and Wire was an exception
end ruse 3 pcdnts on reports of new properties
acquired; most of the gain being retained. Su
gar and Tobacco enjoyed their period of
strength, but both closed at net losses. There
was. some large buying of United States
Leather, but its gain was not maintained.
Omaha preferred, which last sold at IS7>, was
offered at IS3 and from that down to 176 with
out takers. St. Paul preferred sold illy '.it
171 and later at 16J.
The bond man.et seems rather weaker than
has been the case up to this time, reflecting
the high prevailing rates for money. Th- situa
tion in the money market showed very little
change, loans being made as high as' 19 per
cent, and as low as 6 per cent. .The majority of
loans were made at from 6 to 8 per cent. Gold
shipped from Europ>e. ls now in New York
vaults and no more is to be expected for the
present from that source. It was reported that
the Treasury Department had decided to antici
pate the November 1 payment of Interest, as
was done last year, but no announcement of
such di cisic.n came from Washington.
The detailed statement of New York banks
on Saturday showed more than half the mem
bers of the; clearing-house are still 1" low the
legal reserve limit and the necessary conse
quence was a further calling of ioans. Hanks
in the West and even in Canada are reported
to be placing call loans on the Stock Exchange.
By the calling of loans by New York banks,
which thus made necessary the putting up of
the call loan rate in New York, the Western
banks are getting the advantage of the higher
rate for their surplus funds, which are placed
In Wall street. Earlier in the season Wall
street expected to be relieved from the usual
pressure for crop moving money on account of
the large reserves in Western banks. But the
latter have found a more profitable method of
conducting operations. Sterling exchange eas-^.l
off in sympathy at' Paris and Berlin, but held
rtlff in New York for demand bills and cables
The bond market was dull and weak. Totai
sales, par value, ii.sw.oco. ■
United States bonds were unchanged In bid
quotaticms.

The general tone of the markets here. to-day
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY,
was fairly cheerful, but trading was not on
a large scale because of the settlement which
begins to-morrow. The better feeling was
caused by the hopes of peace in the Trans
vaal Inspired by the attitude of the resident
of the Orange Free State and the news that
the Boers on the border are tired of waiting
and are retiring, leaving only sentries in their
places. Good Board of Trade returns and an
easing market for money helped the markets
considerably, Consols were up >* to 103%.
Americans developed strength steadily, but
closed somewhat under the best, affected prob
ably by the receipt of New York prices under
those in London, It was a great Louisville
and Nashville day. and the boomers of the
stock are talking 120 for it. Atchison preferred

quiet. Costa Rlcas have all been absorbed and
the light stocks of other kinds is of a generally j
undesirable character. Dealers' stocks are, |
however, heavy and well assorted and for this

until the advent of new crop coffees.
