Year as a Whole Bslow 1907 and
1906 In Volume of Business.
Reports From Grain-Producing Sec
tions of West Are Relatively the
Best Season of Inventories in
Wholesale Departments.
New York, Jan. 1. Bradstreet's
says: Holiday quiet has ru ed traue
and industry, with pre-Inventory rates
among buyers and clearance offer
ings by the retailers as leading feat
ures. Trade In regular lines felt the
influence of unseasonably mild
weather early in the week, but toward
the close a cold wave in the west gave
some stimulus to business In season
able goods. Results of the year arc
now being arrived at in many lines
of wholw.'e trade. While condition?
are irregular, preventing character
ization, as a whole the year was be
low 1907 and 1906 at many cities and
profits were certainly smaller all
around. It is to be noted that reports
Irom the surplus grain producing sec
tions of the west are relatively the
best. Collections are irregular. Holi
day shutdowns and Inventories have
made for quiet in Industry, but it is
to be noted that while there is yet
much idle machinery, still the feeling
generally In all 11D3B as compared with
a year ago has very much Improved.
The iron and steel markets were
quiet this week, year-end inventories
and holiday observances being respon-
ble for much of the dullness. Prices,
however, continue firm. New orders
for pig Iron have been very moderate,
but cast iron pipe interests are inquir
ing for a comparatively good tonnage
and demand for basic pig continues
good in eastern Pennsylvania. The
outlook Is clouded' to some extent by
fear of tariff remissions, but transac
tions will probably improve in connec
tion with the betterment that is ex
pected to como in business. European
consumers have purchased more free
ly, and at. the same time American In
terests (ire said to have taken quite
liberal quantities of goods.
Failures for the week number 299.
Wheat exports for the week aggre
gate 3,116,601 bushels. Corn exports
for the week are 1,025,495 bushels.
Dun Sees Hopeful Conditions.
New York, Jan. 1. Hopeful finan
cial and commercial conditions for
1909 are glowingly predicted In R. G.
Dun & Co.'a annual review of trade
conditions. This asserts that the re
cuperative powers shown by the Wall
street Interests during the year Just
ended "were beyond the hopes of th
most sanguine." Dun places the
amount Involved In banking failures
during the year at $110,000,000 less
than that involved In 1907, although
more banks failed than in the preced
ing year.
Railroad Officers on Outlook.
Chicago, Jan. J -The Railway Jour
nal prints letters from the heads of
six railway systems, in which Is
shown, among other things, that only
one, the Northern Pacific, contem
plates extensions during the coming
year. The officials agree the business
prospect Is for a healthy, normal Im
provement, that freight rates should
be Increased snd that "unreasonable
anti-railroad legislation and agita
tion" should cease.

tal gold output In 1908 was $427,000,
