Mors moderate weather last week gays
Hew Impetus to spring trade with Omaha
Jobbers and manufacturers and as a result
they are all feeling greatly encouraged
over the outlook for future business. More
buyers wire In the city last week than for
loma tlmt past and they all left liberal
orders. Traveling men also met with much
better success on the road. According to
all Indications, Jobbers say that there will
b a greater volume of goods sold In this
city during the next few weeks than ever
before during the same length of time.
Merchants as a rule In tha state of Ne
braska, Iowa, Missouri and Kansas have
cleaned up their winter stocks In good
ahape and are on the market for henvy
stocks of spring and summer goods. The
only section of the country tributary to this
market where retnllers have not sold out
their winter goods In satisfactory shape
Is In the far west, where the weather was
ao mild that people did not consume as
much winter slock a. usual. Hut In spite
of that fact merchants In that part will
undoubtedly buy heavy spring lines, as they
re confident that trade during the spring
and summer months will be fully up to the
usual standard. .
Jobbers have a good deal to say regard
ing the condition of collections. Merchants
eem to be meeting their bills with more
than the usual degree of promptness and
In fact there are very few poor accounts
being carried by Omaha houses. Failures
among retailers are very scarce, so that
losses from that source are at a minimum.
In view of these conditions, Jobbers say
there Is no reason why retailers should not
place liberal orders, as they could not well
be more prosperous or be more hopeful for
the future than they are at the present
The markets have been rather devoid of
special features during the last several
days and In fact there have been almost
no fluctuations at all of any great Impor -ance.
There la a good healthy undertone
to the general market, however, and all
predictions are for continued firm markets.
Few Changes In Groceries.
It has been a long time since the grocery
market has held us steady as It did last
week. Trade was active and In fact better
than It was a week ago. but almost nil
lines sold in Just about the same notches
as they did the week before. Sugar, for
example, was steady all the week, but at
the same time there was considerable evi
dence of strength, which leada to the belief
that an advance will take place In the near
Syrups are a little higher than they were
a week ago, owing to the fact that about
W per cent of the glucose produced In the
country Is controlled by a combination, and
as a result the market is In a very strong
The only chango In farinaceous goods
was a slight decline In rolled oats, which
riffected both barrel and case goods. There
s no change to note In canned goods,
though corn and tomatoes continue very
strong. Pears are also showing considerable
Dried fruits are selling In the same
notches they were a week ago. As previ
ously mentioned, peaches and prunes are
being he-id at very firm prices, with de
sirable stocks hard to obtain, but there
baa been no change In quotations.
Print Cloths a Little Higher.
The most Important change In the dry
roods market last week was an advance
In print clotha amounting to c. They are
Bow hold at 3'4o and buyers who are In a
position to know say that Indications are
favorable for still higher prices in the near
future. In fact, it is stated that if Ameri
can prints, which are now held under the
market, should advance all lines of goods
mads on print cloths would advance at
pnee. Bales of staple lines of prints are
larger than they have been at any time
within the last six months. Percales, ging
hams and all wash goods are also selling
freely on the local market. Any one visit
ing the big Howard street houses last week
would have noticed that there was more
activity than of Into and that the number
if merchants visiting this market Is In
creasing every year at a ranld rata. The
buyers generally expressed themselves as
being well pleased and surprised at the
targe assortment or stocks carrieq in thl
llty and the else of their orders gave; still
further proof of their satisfaction.

cloth, poultry netting and steel goods are
bow selling u.uite freely and with moderate
weather from this time on trade ought to
Increase at a rapid rate. Not very many
merchants have been in the city of late, but
those who have visited the market all seem
to be very confident regarding future busi
ness and say there Is no reason whv thev
should not have a nice trade throughout
the spring and summer. They look for con
siderable building and repairing, which, of
course, means a brisk demand.
So far as tha market is concerned there
Is not much to be suld. as iiruotliullv all

time there is no reason for looking for any.

Uood Demand for Leather Goods.
' Leather goods Jobbers report trade as
being of very satisfactory proportions.
Traveling men are sending in a nice batch
sf orders with every mall und a good many
buyers are also coming on the market.
Every mild day reminds merchants that It
Is only a short time now before spring and
summer lines will be In demand, and aa a
result they are getting anxious to place
their oruera and get the goods In stock.
The increasing demand for oxfords In both
men s and women's lines la more notice-
able each week and Jobbers say there Is no
doubt but what more of that style of shoe
Will be worn in this section of the country
this season than ever before.
Rubber goods Jobbers are not being
kxactly rushed with business at the present
time. They look for a brisk trade, how-
fver, as soon as the snow melts and the

Ths supply for the week has been heavier

from ths table of receipts at the head CI

good strong prices. The advance for ths
week amounts to a strong 26c and In soma
cases sales were made that were consld

seem to be enough on sale to meet the de
