CONDITION OF OMAHA'S TRADE
Vo'ttue of BusirJss Very Satisfactory for
This Time of Year.
BUILDERS' HARDWARE ADVANCED SHARPLY
Cotton floods Continue Slrong and
Indications Favorable for Still
Higher Prices on Kamltrr
of Staple Lines.
OMAHA. April 12.
While most lines of wholesale anil retail
business In Omaha anil surrounding terrl-
Jory wan not exactly rushing last wtf,
(111 dealers In all line had a very satls
faetory trade. The lack of more settled
weather, of course, had a tendency to cut
down retail trade and made retailers slow
about sorting up their stocks. Besides
that, farmers are most too busy with
their spring work to go- to town and
that Is also having a bad effect upon
retail trade In the country. No complaints,
however, are heard, as retailers as well
as Jobbers are confident that In a veiy
short time spring and summer lines will
move out at a very rapid rate.
Jobbers In most llnee are devoting most
of their attention at the present lme to
advance orders for fall. Traveling men
are covering their territories and so far
It Is reported that they have met with
exceptionally good success, which l taken
as a good indication of the fact that re
tailers are not at all worried about the
Market quotations are In much the same
condition they were a week ago, compara
tively few changes having taken place.
The few that have been reported nro
nearly all In the direction of higher prices.
The demand for all lines continues to be
fullv equal to the supply end In a great
many cases Jobbers are obliged to antici
pate their wants for many months In the
future. Those who are best posted on
general conditions look for firm, active
markets for an Indefinite length of time
and say that retailers need have no hesi
tancy about anticipating their wants as
far In the future as is convenient for them
to do. .
Collection continue fair In nearly all
lines, though vfarmer weather would un
doubtedly Increase retail trade and In that
way Improve collections with local Jobbers.
Sugar Market Steady.
There has been no change In the sugar
market since last report worthy of men
tion. All grades are quoted the same as
they were a week ago, but tho demand Is
Beginning to pick up to quite an extent.
The coffee market Is also In about the
same position it was a week ago, and ac
cording to eastern advices trade is a little
There has been another advance In sisal
rope, and Indications are considered fa
vorable for still higher prices In the near
Mustard sardines advanced about 15c per
case owing to' the light supply. It Is
claimed that stocks are exceptionally light
for this time of year, and It will be at
least ninety days before the new packing
eason will open.
Cheese continues very scarce at thu
present high range of prices. New full
cream grass cheese Is not expected on the
market before the last of May.
In dried fruits Ihere Is no change to note
except a decided improvement In the de
mand, especially for apricots and pears.
Stocks of both Hre said to be exceedingly
light and advances are being freely pre
dicted. Canned goods are aliso in Just about the
ame position they were a week ago.
In farinaceous goods the only change of
Importance Is a slightly firmer feeling on
beans, caused by the fact that farmers
have been too busy to market the stock
thev have on hand.
Other stsple lines are selling In Just about
the same notches they were a week ago.
In regard to the condition of trade, Jobbers
say that all seasonable goods are moving
out very freely and a good Increase Is noted
for last week, both as compared with the
previous week and also with the corre
sponding week of last year.
'Cotton Goods Contlnae Firm.
House trade with local dry goods Jobbers
Was only fair last week and" current busi
ness with traveling salesmen waa also
comparatively light. Jobbers were not sur
prised at that, however, aa this la naturally
a between season period and wholesalers
do not expect much In the way of im
mediate business until warmer weather

"all business, however, is assuming very
atisfactory proportions and traveling men

Wear, blankets, duck lined goods and
shirts have been much larger than up to
the present time of last year. In fact
jobbers say there seems to be a general
disposition on the part of leading retailers
to place their orders for fall goods earlier
In regard to the market. Jobbers say that
on account of the recent advances In
cotton and the constantly advancing acale
of wages being paid by manufacturers
higher prices for the future are predicted
on many lines of cotton goods. Those
wno are Dest posiea say mat it is at
least safe to predict that there will be no
Fanpi nni in nnim mr antri Tim in nrrn
inrt wholesalers do not Hesitate to urge
heir friends to place tneir oraera ror fail
otton goods as early aa possible.
Since last report there have been no
qiuotaoie cnanges in leaning oranns or
ctton goods, except an advance of lc per
Vfird on Pepperell wide sheetings to a
basis of 22c for 10-4 bleached. Competing
lilies also made similar advances.
Adianee In Batlders Hardware. .
Tihe only change last week In the hard
ware market waa an advance In builders'
hardware amounting to about 20 per cent,
ljocal Jobbers received telegrams to that
effect on Friday. The advance came as no
great surprise, .owing to the fact that
goods have been hard to obtain for some
time past. Other lines of goods are in
bout the same position they were a week
ago, but still the market on an lines may
be said to be In a good, strong position.
ngne- prices on a number or lines would
cms no great surprise.
In regard to the condition of trade local
Jobbers say that they are getting about
all the orders they can handle. The de
mand from ail sections tributary to this
market la exceptionally heavy and goes
head of all expectations. There Is no run
on any one particular line, but simply an
active demand foi all kinds of spring
goods. In view of the liberal demand
being experienced at the present time Job
bers think thev are safe In predicting a
good, active ana Arm market for some time
Leather Goods it Little Qalet.
Immediate business with boot and shoe
Jobbers continues rather oulet. According
to all reports received from the country
retailers still have the bulk of their spring
.goods on the'r shelves, and as a result
they are not sending In many stztng-up
orders. What Is needed to revive trade is,
of course, warm weather. Kail business,
however, Is moving along In very satis
factory manner, and ao far traveling sales
men have taken mora orders for fall ship
ment than ever before this early In the
year. Traveling men sav that retailers
are In the best of spirits, and are patiently
waiting for warm weather without doing
any complaining. Aa tons- as the Indica
tions for good crops continue favorable It
la thought that little difficulty will be ex-
rertenced In getting retailers to place their
Rubber goods men are also having rather
quiet time owing to the lack ot rainy
weather. The few rains of last week
timid things up In the country a little
and gave retailers some business, but it
did not do Jobbers much good. What
wholesalers want to see la a week or more
of rain, and they say business with them
will be good.
Frnlta and Prosset.
Quite an Improvement was noticed last
week In the demand for trull and veget-
tbUs. More fresh stock was on the mar
et than at any time this spring and the
demand was sufficient to take all that waa
r-ffered. Was beans and rhubarb mere on
the market, but nothing was shipped to
the country, aa only a limited quantity
arrived and waa sold to the local trade
at fancy prices. Texas strawberries are
now coming forward and are In better
condition than the atock that waa offered
previous to this time. Jobbers are ship
ping some stock to the country and their
quotations range from $4 to $4.60 per at
quart .case. Within a week or ten days
Jobber look for the quality of the ber
ries to show considerable Improvement.
Apples firmed up a little last week, so
ht nracttcally all kinds of aood sh n-
ylng stock are selling at right around W
i.er barrel. The quotations on the various
lines of fruits and vegetables wui be found
In another column.
Receluts of eggs were quite liberal last
week, but not more so than usual at this
time or year, ine maraei is nrm at ins

NEW YORK STOCKS ADD BOMDS.
Interest Centers In Lonlsvllle Nash
ville and Mnrket Unsettled.
NEW YORK. April 12 The situation
centering about Louisville & Nashville waa
the object of keen Interest In Wall street
today and kept the market feverish and
in settled. The jumps of over 10 points In
Chicago & Eastern Illinois and the rise in
Evansvllle & Terre Haute revived rumors
of projects for a Chicago outlet for Louis
ville, and the conferences In progress and
known to the street strengthened the lm
ptesslon of an Impending porting control
or Louisville & Nashville itself.
There was a renewal of the activity and
sttength in Colorado A Southern, which
was attributed to the working out of plans
for the extension of the Rock Island con
nections. Indicated by the purchase of the
Choctaw, Oklahoma & Gulf. Otherwise the
principal strength was In specialties. The
buoyant rise of Canadian Pacific to 120,
with a relapse of a point waa not explained.
The strength of the various rubber stocks
was due to reports of proposed mergers,
as were the movements In Virginia-Carolina
Chemical and Cotton Oil. The rise of
over 4 points In International Power, due
to the expectation of stock subscription
rights. The trading wss not heavy and the
advance after the bank statement was met
by realizing, so that the closing was Ir
regular. '1 he cash changes In the bank statement
conformed closely to the estimates. The
man aecresse was larger even than hoped
for, but the knowledge that large loans
were transferred to the trust companies to
foreign lenders left the outlook for money
by no means clear.
United States 2s and old 4s, registered,
advanced 4 and the 6s 1 per cent. The 8s,
coupon, declined 4 per cent compared with
the closing price of last week.
The Commercial Advertiser's London
financial cablegram says: There was more
talk than actual business In the market
today. The cabinet met on urgent sum
mons. This gave rise to divergent rumors,
some reporting a cabinet crisis, in which
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach wanted to raise
the Income tax and Joseph Chamberlain
Insisted In a fresh war loan, threatening
his resignation unless his plan was adopted.
The latest rumor Is that the Bank of Eng
land representatives have been In confer
ence with the chancellor of exchequer.
This, If true, suggests a new loan, but alt
are awaiting the official confirmation of
such ti step. Consols closed at 944, after
touching 96. American stocks were gen
erally above parity, the Louisville A Nash
ville stocks were tinder parity, with ap
parent good strength. Rio tlntos were on

CATTLE There were no cattle on sale
today, but for the week receipts have been
fairly liberal, though a slight decrease Is
noted as compared with last week. As
compared with the corresponding week of
last year tnere is an increase 01 neany
Receipts Included a good proportion of
beef steers all the week, and the quality
was fully as good as at any previous tlgie
this year. Packers took hold In good shape
most of the time and prices for the week
are perhaps 10 16c higher than at the close
of last week. On Thursday and Friday
packers tried to pound the market, snd
succeeded to some extent, - but still the
week closed with prices a little better than
at the opening. On Wednesday as high ss
$6.90 was paid for a string of cattle, which
Is the highest price of the season. The
better grades of cattle were, of course, In
tho best demand, but still even the com
moner kinds sold without much trouble.
Medium weight cattle sold, perhaps, to
better advantage than the extremely heavy
cattle, the same as waa noted a week ago.
The bulk of the cattle coining forward are
selling from $6.00 to $6.60.
The cow market slumped off a little the
latter part of the week and closed 16S25c
lower than the close of last week. The
decline was fully as great on the good to
choice kinds as on the medium grades, and
the common stuff has been selling so low
for some time past that those kinds could
not decline very much. The good to choice
grades sold largely from $4.76 to $6.00,
though ocaslonally a sale went somewhat
shove 16.00. The medium kinds sold from
$3.75 to $4.76, and the common stuff from
Bulls, veal calves and stags sold at not
far from steady prices most of the week,
though the feeling was rather weak on
Thursday snd Friday.
The stocker and feeder trade has been
none too active this week, but still the
good heavyweight cattle are selling In Just
about the same notches as they were a
week ago. Very few of that class of cattle
are being offered, however. The bulk of
the receipts are made up of common to
fair cattle of light weight, and such kinds
were slow sale all the week, with the ten
dency of prices downward.
HOGS There was not a hesvy supply
of hogs here today and the market stsrted
out ftlrlv active snl steady to strong on
the good weight hogs. As a general thing
they sold from $6.90 to $7.00, snd from that
up to i I". so tnat ine top looay was oc
higher than yesterday. The medium
weights sold from $6.80 to $6.90. On the
light mixed and mixed hogs thsre was
very little done on the opening market,
snd, as the morning advanced, the market
on that class ot hogs weakened. Packers
did not care whether they bought the light
stuff or not, snd finally the market became
bd'l 10c lower than yesterday, and the close
was very slow. Quite a few light hogs
were carried over from yesterday, which,
with the fresh receipts, made a good many
of that class or. aale. and It was very
late before anything like a clearance was
For the week a decrease In receipts Is
noted, as cotrpared with last week, but as
compared wlih the same week of last year
there is a good substantial Increase. The
table ot receipts above will give the exact
figures. The general tendency of prices
has been upward all the week, and the
total advance amounts to about 25c, which
carries the market baok to where It was
last September, or to the highest point
since 1"93. The top of the market this
week wss $7.10, while lsst September the
top was $7.00, but the average cost of all
the hogs is sbout ths same. Representa

AMERICA BRAITY ROSK.
A French Iratnlarant Brought to Ter
fertlon In American Soli. '
The famous American Beauty rose, says
Country Life In America, Is often said lo
bare originated lo Bancroft's garden. The
facts ars these: In Bancroft's garden
were several varieties lately Imported from
France. Oaa had no label. ' This wis
much admired by a florist nstned George
Field, who happened to be looking over the
place In company with Bancroft's gardener.
Field asked for a cuUlng. Ha got It.
Field and his brother worked quietly for
several years until tbey had a big stock,
and then they advertised tbelr novelty as
ths "American Beauty" rose. They are
said to have made a small fortune out of
the trantaotlon. Ths American Beauty
has since become ths most famous of all
roses la ths Vnlted States. It has never
failed to bring higher prices thsn any other
rone. In the market reports It la always
Quoted In a class by Itself. Only experts
can grow it to perfection, and there Is a
recognized typs of grscnbouis specially
adapted to It.
80ms time after Field Bro. Intro-
dueed the American Beauty horticulturists
began to Investigate Its origin, with the
result that Its proper name was found to
bs Mms. Ferdinand Janiln, the name It
bad In Francs before a plant of It had been
sent to Bancroft's garden, where tbe label
was lost. This variety Is of no Importance
In Fiance or In Europs. In fact ths Ameri
can Besuty bat become so much modified
by American conditions that some think It
is practically a dlffersnt variety from Mme.
