(See report attached.) Summary of apiicuded Accountauts; Reports. Tlio original organization was on the basis of a contribution of all tho Sugar Hollaing properties and their appliances, including tho good-will. In order to provide the necessary working capital, 8il�, OOO.OOc was borrowed. Slnco the organization there have been paid in cash from earnings dividends at the ralo of 10 por cent, per annum, down to July 1st, 1890, amounting to 811,(>OO,U0�.5O, unci there remained on hand in cash nasetB and Investments, above liabilities, on, September 1st, 1800, a surplus of moro than 8811,600.000. Also, with some unimportant exceptions, thy Refineries have continued to hold their original plants, Bonio have purchased additional real estate, and extensive additions and ltn-provemontB have been made to buildings nnd machinery. Valuable patouts havo also been acquired. The expenditure in additions to plants exceed the sales of plant by moro than IB�,750,000. PLAN. We submit the following plan, which lias the approval of eminent counsel, as per certificate herewith. All the properties now represented by the certificates of tho Sugar Reflnerlcs Companies will be acquired by a New Jersey corporation to be called The American Sugar Roflning Compnny."

Tho capital of this corporation will be $50,000,000, consisting of 825,000,000 of 7 per cent. Oumulativo Preferred Stock. 25,000,000 of Common Stock. Tho shares of the American Sugar Refining Co. will be exchanged, share for sharo, for Central Trust Company receipts, representing certificates, one-half in preferred shores and one-half in common shares.

Upon completion of the plan, and after tho distribution of the above 5 per cent, in cash, it is estimated that the American Sugar Refining Co. will oommonco operations.with cash assets and investments exceeding 0,000,000 (over 87,000,000 will be In cash and available caBh assots) with tho power to raise upon mortgage 810,000,000 additional, if required. 1 All certificate holders who desire to participate in this plan may deposit their certificates at once with tho Contral Trust Co., when they will receive in exchango the Central TruBt Co. rocolpts, which are, in turn, exchangeable for the Btock of the new company.

Quotations in tlie Boston, Now York and Ohioago Markets. In noarly all linos of businoss tho past week, trado has boon of a quiet, steady nature with valuos woll maintained. As it is botweon seasons, tho freo movement o� goods whioh provails at prosent is unusual, and civos promiso of t?reat activity tho first of next month. Tho mills throughout tho Stato aro, with ono or two exceptions, running on full tluio, and are consuming thoir stocks rapi dly. This is particularly truo of tho shoo faotorios, and tho paper, worsted and dress goods mills. Thoro has beon a slight im/jrovomont noticed in tho domand for loathor, but it will take from two to throo wookB boforo manufaoturors aro again forced to buy. They will bogln to fill thoir spring orders about tho middle of tho month, and none of them havo stock sufficient to last much beyond Dec. 1. Thoro is a do xnand at nrcsont . for solo loathor strong'Oiiough to keop stocks from acoumu lating. Hides have weakened a trifle, but thd decline from tho highest point can be recovered us soon as tho domand improves. There has boon moro buying of kip, grain aud splits at small concessions on only good-sized orders. Many largo contracts for boots and shoes havo been closed tho past woek. .lobbors aro accepting prices as thoy at lengths understand tho situation. Tho do-olino ir not sufficient to chango quotations. Tho prlcos at which shoos aro now selling do notcovor tho increased cost. The orders for spring goods aro larger than was ox. pected, and tho factories aro finding oousld orablo difficulty in filling thorn. There is still a good movomont in all grades of wool. But few changes are noted in quotations. Tho demnnd for Ohio and Michigan wool is very strong and tho sur ply is hardly sufficient to moot ft. Dealers have tho host of tho mar ket and aro making evory oil'ort to maintain tho prosont condition, Toxns and Oregon wools proiniso to bo in bettor domand bocauso of tho oxolusion of wools by tlio tariff. An Improvement is already noticed in thorn. California and Territory wools aro still firm, and comprise tho major part of tho sales. Worsted mills aro taking all the long staple wools that aro offered. Prloos havo not ns yet boon established at Melbourne because there havo boon such small quantities of wool ofl'orod for sttlo. Wool is in a romarkably strong position. It cannot weaken under a moderate domand with as light a supply as tbore is at prosont. Tho rubber market is demoralized and pricos aro low. Manufaoturors aro not buying freely. Thoro is a good movement in rubber goods. Tlio mills aro reputed slow in filling thoir ordors and aro thus on. dcavorlng to improvo tho domand and advance prices. Thoro is a good movomont in all linos of dry goods. Print cloths havo improvod, and stocks show a slight falling off, witli a bettor demand. Cotton goods aro in good request. and prloos on Homo grades have boen advanced. Prints aro quiotor and values havo weakened. Woollens and worsteds are firm, with quotations woll maintained.
