LONDON, Monday.—There is still a small demand for 1888 hops for actual requirements, but the bulk of consumers are awaiting the result of the new growth, and prices remain nominally the same as last week. The plantation reports vary, but on the whole are not unfavourable, and promise better quality than last growth. Continental reports speak of a crop there rather above the average. WOOL. BRADFORD, Monday.—The quiet tone which has recently come over the market continues, and price?, though nominully firm, are inclining slightly in buyers' favour. There is still much confidence in the future, however, and sellers show great reluctance to make concessions. The export yaro trade remains inactive, and less is being done in manufactured goods. Machinery meanwhile keeps well employed.
