Tho Slovo, tho conservative organ,
which recently turned upon Count

impugning tho motives of the premier
in tho present war ngalnst tho "reds,"
but openly uttacklng the records of
members of the cabinet. It says:
"Russian society supports the war
against anarchy, but refuses to bcliovo
that Wltto Is making a fight In tho In
terest of freedom, ns all his life ho
has been tho prlnco of bureaucrats."
Moscow, Jan. 1. White flags flying
from a dozen factories in the Prcsna

During the night the vast majority
of the members of the "Fighting Le

TRADE REVIEW FOR THE WEEK.
Bradstreet's Says Future Outlook la
Full of Promise.
Now York, Dec. 30. Bradstreet's
oays: Following an unprecedentedly t
active holiday business in all parts of I
the country, distributive trade seemu
quiet by contrast, moro particularly
as unseasonably mild weather affects .
retail operations In seasonable heavy I
wearing apparel. What is bad for re
tail business Is, however, good for out-'
door industry, particularly bulldinc, I
which rcmalnB very active, and mnnn-1
fac tu ring operations are likewise fa
cilitated by uninterrupted passage of
raw materials to consuming centers. I
In wholesale trade, clearing sales and I
stock-taking operations absorb atten
tion, but it Is noted that operations
for spring account are larger than or
dinary, and In fact business Is heavier
than expected at this season. Staples
generally maintain all their old
strength of demand and prices, .fin
ished steel being particularly active
for this season, though pig iron sales
are fair at the west and open weather
favors unprecedented production. La
bor is exceptionally well employed for
this season and tho weather condi
tions so far favor less than ordinary
Ehut downs. January Is likely to see
some strikes In the printing trades
and somo lines of building employes
at the metropolis.
Additional reports as to trade in the
year now closing point to 1905 as hav
ing been a record breaker, alike in
agricultural, speculative, financial and
Industrial circles. As a whole, how
ever, primacy must be assigned to
manufacturing industry, which shows
tho largest gains over all preceding
years. As to tho future, the outlook
seems full of promise and the advent
of 19C6 is awaited with confidence un
surpassed in recent years.
