FIUDAY, AUGUST 15, 1924.
BUSINESS WAS GOOD DURING MONTH JULY Arizona business in July was char acteristic of the season, with the usual summer dullness in many localities. The general level compared favorably with the same month of last year, not withstanding slight decreases reported in some lines. The agricultural season has made excellent progress. Cotton is doing well, and with a fair market should hring value of the state’s farm pro duction to 40,000,000 this year. Grain and hay harvests have been satisfac tory, and the cantaloupe season was unusually successful from the produc tion standpoint, although repturns were not good. The livestock industry is in the dull season between spring and fall move ments. Cattle shipments were below normal the first half of the year, and fell movement will depend to a con siderable extent on whether the drouth in California is broken before winter. Sheep men have had a good lamb mar ket, but the wool market continues slow despite favorable underlying con ditions. The copper market turned upward in July, advancing from 12 1-2 to 13 1-4 cents a pound. No changes are ap parent in production. The state’s 1924 mine output is expected to be about the same as last year, but its value probably will be lower. Cop per, gold,, silver and lead produced in Arizona last year had an aggregate value of $104,000,000. Basic soundness of conditions in Arizona was reflected in bank re ports made to the state banking de partment under call of June 30. show ing a gain of $1,000,000 in deposits, and a decrease of nearly $2,000,000 in loans from a year ago. which in turn had shown decided improvement over the previous year. Checking trans actions in principal cities of the state as reported to the Arizona Industrial Congress compared well with June, and with July of last year. Both Babson and “The Nation’s Bus iness” map of the nation’s business in dicate that Arizona is in a particular ly favorable position as compared with other states, and future progress may be guaged from the many proj ects which are assured during the next few years, including the new South ern Pacific main line to be built at a cost of $15,000,000, the $4,400,000 Horse Mesa dam of the Salt River Valley Water Users’ association; the San Carlos project to reclaim 100,000 acres in the Florence-Casa Grande valley, completion of the Santa Fe’s $5,000,000 double-tracking program and others. Livestock July is usually a dull month in livestock, and proved no exception this year. Some cattle were shipped from Yavapai county on late spring sales, with more to follow in August, but otherwise there was little activity. Movement of range cattle to points outside the state during the first half of the year was below normal, ship ments amounting to but 58,000 head during the first five months. An other 44,000 head were shipped to points inside the state. Drouth con ditions in California, coupled with the fact that northwestern buyers are still restricted by credit facilities, were the main factors, and the out look and fall shipments hinges to a great extent cn whether California re ceives early fall rains. Continued douth on the coast will cut sales to that market, which ordinarily takes the greater part of Arizona’s range stock for feeding. Sales of fat cattle also have been hampered by the drouth, California packers buying stock in their own state in an effort to relieve conditions. However, the middle of fall should see Arizona beef cattle again in demand on the coast, and feeders are holding firm with that end in view. Although summer showers began, early, rains thus far have been gen erally light and decidedly spotted, with the result that additional precip itation is needed to assure good range conditions, as feed is becoming short and water low in some Sections. Stock has held up very well, however. The lamb market shows continued steadiness, but prices are not so high as a month ago. There is some worry over the fact that no contracts have been made yet for feeder lambs, which are usually all contracted by this time. The high price of corn and drouth conditions in the northwest undoubt edly will throw a lot of cheap lambs on the market, which accounts for feeder buyers letting Arizona alone. The Boston wool market is showing a little strength, but no sales of western wool have been made for some time, owners preferring to hold for a chance of prices coming back to the spring level.

Survey crews are in the field and construction is sched uled to begin as scon as approval of the merger is given by the Interstate Commerce Commission, which will be gin public hearings in Phoenix in September. Meanwhile the Santa Fe is contin uing double tracking of its main line across Arizona, which will be com pleted next year, total expenditure be ing $5,000,000. This road also is im proving its Ashfork-Phoenix line, and has purchased a 40-acre tract in Phoe nix for additional shops. Some of this space will be leased out for indus trial purposes. June tonnage of the Santa Fe in Arizona was 113,908, com pared to 119,703 in May and 143,815 in June, 1923. o KANSAS CITY STOCK YARD REPORT August 4, 1924 By CHAS. M. PIPKIN Correspondent Following the sudden slump in prices the middle of last week the market turned up Friday and is still j advancing. Today’s advance was 35 to 50 cents, and the top price reached $lO. Receipts of cattle though fairly liberal were not as large as a year ago. There was active demand at steady prices for the best classes of fed, wintered and grass fat classes, and others were 15 toi 25 cents lower. Sheep were steady and lambs steady to 25 cents lower. Today’s Receipts Receipts today were 24,000 cattle, 4,500 hogs and 7,000 sheep, compared with 16,000 cattle, 7,000 hogs and 5,- 000 sheep a> week ago, and 28,000 cattle, 10,600 hogs and 3,400 sheep a year ago. Beef Cattle Though total receipts of cattle were liberal, the supply of fed steers was moderate and they sold readily at firm prices. The best classes of win tered and grass fat steers sold steady and demand for them was improved by the small supply of grain fed steers. Medium, plain and common grass fat steers were 10 to 25 cents lower, mostly 25 cents off. Cattle that have had any material amount of feed will probably go higher. Receipts cf grass fat cattle are on the increase. In the butcher division prices were steady to 25 cents lower, the decline showing in medium classes of grass fat cows and heifers. Calf receipts were 6,000 and prices were quoted 50 cents lower, top SB. Stockers and Feeders Trade in the better classes of stock and feeding cattle was active at firm prices, and while the plain to fair classes sold slowly they were (noted steady. Inquiry is increasing from corn belt states. Sheep and Lambs Sheep were steady and lambs 25 cents lower. Western lambs sold at $13.25 to 13.60, and native lambs 12.50 to $13.25. Some Navajo ewes brought $6 to $6.50. They were the only sheep offered.

WHEN BETTER AUTOMOBILES ARE BUILT. BUICK WILL BUILD THEM WOOL GROWERS OF WEST BENEFITTED BY| LATE I. C. C. RULING Sweeping benefits to wool growers of the west will result from the re cent ruling of the interstate commerce commission adjusting wool freight rates to eastern markets. The new rates become effective October 23. In addition to a reduction of rates, the commission’s order requires rail roads to provide for sorting and bal ing of wool in transit at intermoun tam points. The commission in disposing of other matters incidental to the move ment of wool, requires the carriers to provide baling, sorting and concen tration privileges on traffic moving either east or west. This should open new opportunities for location of bal ing and sorting plants at intermoun tam points. In the decision the commission dis posed of a complicated trans-continen tal rate matter in a constructive way and established a precedent in the coordination of rail and water trans portation. This is in accordance with Section 500 of the Transportation act, of 1920, in which congress declared its policy to “promote, encourage and develop water transportation, service and facilities in connection with com j merce and foster and preserve in full vigor both rail and water transporta tion.” For a number of years all-rail wool rates to eastern market have been in violation of the long and sbort haul, commonly known as the fourth sec tion of the commerce act, in tnat rates from, the interior points of production to Boston were higher than rates from Pacific coast terminals. In 1921 the commission denied fur ther relief asked by the railroads and ordered them to adjust their rates so as to remove all long and short haul discriminations. The carriers then proposed tariffs substantially increas ing the all-rail rates from Pacific coast terminals to the eastern mar kets. Protests were made by wool shippers. The commission suspended the proposed rates and instituted a general investigation of all wool rates from the western territory. Its decis ion now prescribes a rate structure giving every wool shipper and each eastern market the full benefit of their geographical locations. Under the old structure the point of production nearest the Boston wqol market had to pay a rate higher than the point farthest away, while under the structure prescribed by the com mission this situation will be reversed and the rates will graduate downward as the distance decreases. The commission also adjusted the rates westbound from points of pro duction so as to produce a normal movement of wool traffic byway of the Panama canal. This readjustment results in material reductions on wa ter shipments and gives a rate struc ture which increases as the distance from the Pacific coast increases. The effect of this will tend to balance bet ter the volume of traffic between rail and water carriers and extend to the producer the option of shipping by either form of transportation. The application of the above rates will mean a rate for Winslow of $2.34 on sacked wool to Boston and about $1.45 to Chicago.
