Co.'a weekly review of trade says: Dur
ing the past week the business situa
tion has changed but little. Tho out
ward manifestations vary somewhat,
but the leading facts uro still the enor
mous volume of traffic- In progress, thn
expectation of monetary expansion aud
the absence of forces at present serious
ly disturbing eten in details. Chief
and most potent of tho present favoring
influences is still the proect of In
creased monetary uu of silver In somn
form. Labor controversies cause less
interruption than baa been anticipated.
It has como to bo recognized that in
jury to winter wheat may count for 50,
000,000 bushels at least but spring seed
ing has covered an Increased acreage
and a larger yield of that kind would
naturally follow higher prices. Cotton
Is a shade weaker than a week ago and
accounts of Injury le.ss Impressive. Iron
shows no great change, the radical facts
in that branch being tho transfer of part
of the production to Southern Instead of
Northern fields. The increase in wool
supply this year can not bo large, hut
the expectations of higher prices so
generally entertained by growers tend
to embarrass tho manufacturer, "lloston
sale were large, with pr ce stiff.
The movement of meats continues
heavy- at Chicago, 3,000,000 pounds of
dressed beef against PI. ',,000 last year,
and for the year thus far r.o.ooo.ooo
against ISOoo.ooo pounds last year.
Heef cattle have reached the highest
point for the year; lard receipts at Chi
cago are nearly double, and hogs grow
stronger at the West In general, op
erations In products are remarkably
large, with advancing prices, but ma nly
because of the exjiectcd hws In produc
tion this year.
The dry ginsls business continues of
full volume at Chicago larger than last
year and the shoo trado I also larger.
Tho volume of all trade shown hy ex
change outside of New York remains
nbout 10 per cent iiInivo last year's,
which lu turn was the largest on record.
The rcKrts from Interior cities indlc.ito
fairly maintained activity, with money
market nowhere stringent, though at
Chicago and some other points closer
about May 1 than before on account of
settlements und preparation for assess
ments for taxation. The disburse
ments to May I were larger than ever
before, approaching .10,000,000.
