NEW YORK. March 28. R. O. Dua'i
Weekly Review of Trade tomorrow will say:
Favorably weather greatly facilitated
Easter retail trade, the volume of transac
tlona In all llnea of wearing apparel being
cf exceptional magnitude. Activity wi by
no means restricted to the specialties,
however, the general distribution of mer
chandise exceeding that of previous Bra
ton, with price well maintained. A dis
tinct evidence of the vigor of legitimate
trade la found In the decline of only 21.4
per cent. In bank exchanges at New York,
notwIlhHtandlng the fact that transactions
at the Stock exchange were not more than
a third of those In the same week last
year, while at other leading cities clearings
exhibited a gain of Us per cent over last
year and 31.6 per cent over 1899.
Demands for an eight-hour day after
May 1 by the blast furnace men was the
most disturbing feature In the Iron and
iteel Industry, and this Is not causing much
alarm, a an agreement will probably be
reached during the Intervening month.
Production Is now beyond all previous rec
ords, and the movement of coke In ample,
although the early opening of lake naviga
tion meana additional transporting facili
ties which cannot be well spared. Buying
has been notably active In bars for Implu
ment makers, and producers have sold their
entire output so far ahead that new busi
ness Is not sought. Many plans for imme
diate structural work have been abandoned
owing to the Insufficient supply of available
material. On the other hand there are re
ports of reselling contracts for rail ana
other supplies by consumers who have se
cured larger deliveries than will be needed.
The appearance of this speculative element
would be ominous If quotations were more
excessively Inflated. Aside from the ad
vance In bar Iron at Pittsburg to 118 and
foundry Iron at Chicago to $18.50 there are
no Important price changes, southern fur
nace products having decided to postpone
the proposed advance.
A severe reaction occurred In cotton, due
entirely to the excessive speculative pur
chases, which made the market top-heavy.
A slight recovery In coffee from the bottom
price must be attributed to aggressive op
tion buying, as the statistical position la
not Improved, Brazil receipts exceeding
last record to date by over a third. A tem
porary reduction In refined sugar wal
quickly restored, as the market for raw
grades became very strong. Meats again
advanced In the face of easier grain, a
helpful Influence being the largest single
order ever placed for the British army.
Weakness appeared In the cereals early
In the week, when there was a certain
unanimity about encouraging weather re
ports and Increased acreage. Subsequently
there was partial recovery, owing to less
cheerful news from Kansas and Oklahoma,
but the net result for the week was a de
cidedly lower range of prices. Wheat ex
ports materially declined from the satis
factory record of 4,657.625 bushels last week
to only 8,OKK,642 bushels this week, which
compares with 3.936.K32 In the same week
last year. There was a decrease In western
receipts to 2.747,094 bushels, against 4,052.508
a year ago, but the difference In arrivals of
corn was less striking, 1,976,064 bushels,
ngalnst 2,682.918 a year ago. Atlantic ship
ments of the minor cereal were only 13S.344
bushels, compared with 2.946,461 In HOI. Ac
cording to analysis of the official returns
by a Liverpool authority there will be only
13,0o0,000 bushels of wheat In this country
at the close of the crop year, but the state
ment Is bas.?d on exports for the last four
months of half as much as the record
breaking shipments of the preceding eight
months, which Is extremely Improbable. A
further alteration In the figures should be
made to allow for the under-estlmate of
the total crop.
Failures for the week numbered 206 In the
Vnlted States, against 206 last year, and 22
In Canada, against 29 last year.
BRADSTREET'9 HBVIKW OP TRADK.
Approach of Easter and Spring;
Weather Activates Distribution.
NEW YORK, March 28. Bradstreefs to
morrow will say:
Trade activities have shifted from first
to second hands this week. Wholesale and
lobbing distribution of dry goods, clothing,
hats and caps, millinery and shoes has
been rather queer, as was only natural In
view of the culmination of the spring de
mand before Kaster. Retail distribution,
favored by spring weather, has been very
active east and west, with a fair business
at the south. Among the . Industries new
demand for steel has on the whole been ac
tive and production and shipment have
rone forward at undiminished speed. The
building trades have taken a decided spurt
In activity. Lumber Is active at all mar
kets at higher prices than ruled a year ago.
The edge has rather been taken off cotton
and cotton goods prices by the reaction In
the raw material and the talk of further
labor unsettlcment, but values as a whole
Aggressive strength In prices Is chiefly
manifested by hog products, which It Is
declared have been manipulated by pack
ers. A more reasonable explanation, how
ever, la that the high prices for beef and
mutton have largely diverted consumption
to hog products. Milder weather has re
lieved the strain on the coal trade some
what, but strike talk has prevented weak
ness In prices.
Rather less activity In Iron and steel Is
noted, but no loss of price firmness. Is ob
served. The peculiar situation of the foun
dry pig Iron market Is shown by the fact
that prices of that grade are tl higher per
ton for Bessemer. Finished Iron and steel
have been active, Implement and wagon
manufacturers buying of steel bars, which
are nominally $2 per ton higher. Despite
the fact that tlnplute mills are bonked for
five months ahead the leaning Interest coiv
tlnues to take orders at $4 per box. Testi
mony to the activity In hardware Is well
nigh unanimous. Chicago reports demand
active beyond all precedent. Jobbers In
cutlery and builders hardware at New
York rcKrt Inability to secure supplies
The analysis of the cotton market, given
a week ap. to the effect that the market
was on a fiend center ana tnat tne position
ippeared to be overbought was confirmed
this week by the sharp break of nearly
. one-third of a cent In futures and of one
fourth of a cent In spots, brought about by
tired, long liquidation. A more cheerful
tone developed at the dechne, however, and
covering in anticipation or tno nouaays re
covered a portion of the loss.
Wool Is quiet. Mills are busy on pre
vious orders. Men a wear clothing la dull
Boots and shoes are dull and new business
is smaller Shipments for the season are
trltle smnller than last year. Leather Is
julet and hides are dull and easv.
The leading cereals are Irregularly lower
after an apparently futile effort at bulling
prices. Iast week's decline brought In
onie advance and some advance was re
ported In turn. Home talk of a squeexe In
corn was reflected sympathetically In
wheat. The talk of a corner In July corn
was Aided by the small supplies of con
tract grades, but the tendency to take
profits In anticipation of the holidays weak
ened prices, which closed generally lower
than a year ago.
Wheat crop advices have on the whole
been very good, though Isolated cases of
lamage In Kansas and Oklahoma have
been received. These, however, do not
urea with Bradstreefs reports of liberal
rains In the southwest and Improved feel
ing In business circles generally in that
lection. Wheat. Including flour, exports
for the week aggregate 2,i4.110 bushels,

CATTLE There was a light run of cattle
here today for even a Friday, but still the
receipts are about the same as for last
week and heavier than for the same week
of last year. The demand on the part of
peckers was liberal, and as there were not
enough cattle to go around, buyers were all
out early, and the market ruled very ac
tive and strong. Everything was sold and
weighed up at an early hour.
Receipts Included a fair proportion of
beef steers, and the market could safely
be quoted active and strong to a dime
higher. All kinds of steers sold freely and
as high as $6.66 was paid. As compared
with the close of last week the general
market today looked right around a quarter
higher. The greatest advance Is on the
medium grades, while the higher-priced and
heavier cattle are probably 15625c higher
for the week.
The cow market was alfo active and fully
steady today. Choice cows and heifers In
particular were wanted, and sellers suc
ceeded In getting what looked to be good
strong prices. As high as $5 83 was pHld
for a bunch of 33 head of heifers, which Is
a good example of the way good cows and
heifers are selling. There was not much
of any change today In the prices paid
for the medium kinds and canners, as the
demand remains very limited.
Bulls, veal calves and stags sold In lust
about the same notches they did yesterday.
Choice stockers and feeders sold today at
Just about steady prices, but the com
moner kinds, and particularly the light
weight cattle, were neglected and hard to
move at any price. The demand from the
country haa not been anything extra this
week, and as a result speculators were not
at all anxious for more supplies toduy.

STOCKERS AND FEEDERS.
light run of hogs
here -this morning and under the Influence
of an active local demand and favorable
report from other points the market ad
vanced about a dime. The quality of the
offerings was good this morning and re
ceipts included hut few lightweights. As
will be seen from the sales below the
heavy hogs sold largely from $6 65 to $6.70
and as high as $6.75 was nald. The medium
weights went from $6.5a to $6.65 and the
lighter loads sold from $6.50 down. The
market was active and It only took a short
time for sellers to dispose of most every
thing they had on hand. The extreme close
was a little slow and weak, but it was
mostly the lightweight hogs that were left.
Today's advance carries the market to the
high point of the year and In fact to the
highest point reached since the first part of
last October. Representative sales:
Av. 8h. Pr.
SHEEP--There were only a few cars of
sheep and lambs on the market today and
practically everything sold In good season
at very Mttlsfaclory prices. The quality of
the offerings was not particularly good, but
still packers took hold in good Hhape and
paid steady to strong prices for everything
at all desirable. There was more strength
to the lamb market than to the sheep
market and packers seemed to be anxious

amount. The results were discouraging, he
It was suggested t Mr. Jerome that per

bear the heavy expense of getting evidence.
His reply was: "Do you know of any so
