OMAHA. April 1.
Local Jnhher and manufacturers had a
Srod aversge trad all lam week. As com
ared with the corresponding week of last
year lobbers found they could offer no
complaints and a the prospects for the
future are also full of encouragement
very one aeema to be satisfied. Krum the
country aome complaint are heard regard
ing tha lack of warmer weather and the
Weed of rain la also beginning to be felt In
some loralltlea to aome extent, but atlll no

factory. Hetallera are ronfldent that In a
very ahort time there will be a marked
improvement In the demand for spring and
linnmir line and aa snnn aa that takea
place wholesalers will naturally experience
an Increase In their trade and alao an Im
provement In collections.
At the present time traveling salesmen
for local houses are devoting moat of their
attention to future bualnesa and according
to all reports they are meeting with very
faltering success. Retailers seem to be In
clined to buy early owing probably to the
fact that the outlook for future bualnesa la
encouraging and also to the fact that prices
on practically all llnet are very firm, with
the tendency upward rather than down
ward. To most retailers It seems a safe
r reposition to buy at present prices, as
here Is not much chance for values seek
ing a lower level, while they may go con
siderably higher. The markets aa a whole
re In very much the same poaltlon they
were a week ago, though a few changes
Worthy of mention have taken place.
light Advance In Sugar.
Refined sugar advanced He last week and
the market Is quoted strong at the ad
Vance. The period of heavy consumption Is
tiow clone at hand and still further ad
vances would ca'ise no surprise. Quite an
increase In the demand was noted last
week as compared with the week before
and a steady Increase Is looked for from
now on. Holders of raws In New York are
asking a full c over market quotations
and claim they will not sell for less.
In farinaceous goods the market on oat
meal advanced quite sharply owing to the
high prices ruling on grain. Syrups are
alao In a very strong position and higher
prices are looked for at most any time.
The canned goods market continues verv
firm and particularly la that true of small
fruits. The demand for dried frulta la
much more satisfactory than It has been
of late and holdera In California report
fancy lines of peaches, penrs nnd apricots
a being practically cleaned up, and the
market la advancing on the low grades.
Prunes remain about the same as they
were a week ago. Evaporated apples,
owing to the liberal demand and light sup-
advanced WWJiC. during the week.
in account of the high prices ruling on
the raw fiber the market on sioal roue Is
very strong and a sharp advance Is looked
for In the near future.
So far aa the business situation Is con
cerned local Jobbers say that the demand
for sll staple lines of groceries is very
satisfactory and compares very favorably
With the same period of last year.
Cotton Goods Still Advancing;.
The market on four-yard cotton goods.
Which has been practically the only weak
rpot In the cotton goods market, firmed up
aat week and is now c higher than It was
two weeks ago. It Is stated on good au
thority that some heavy transactions for
export shipment have recently been com
pleted which haa relieved the market con
siderably and leading lines are being held
knore firmly than for some time past.
Other cotton goods continue strong and
advances In many lines, Including well
known brands of staple prints, are looked
Kr by those who are In a position to know,
any leading houses are advising their
customers to make purchases of fall goods
s early as possible and It seems to be the
reneral opinion that those who buy Can
ons, Shakers. Domets and cotton blankets
will make no mistake, as a short supply of
those lines Is looked for. Large manufac
turers claim that owing to the high price
of cotton they will not make up goods In
sxoess of their actual sales.
Local Jobbers state that orders for fall
roods are now being placed freely and that
nade shows quite an Improvement over
I aat week. More buyers were on the mar
ket last week than during the preceding
week and orders both direct and through
traveling salesmen were larger and more
numerous than for several weeks past. As
soon as warmer weather sets In a marked
Improvement In the demand Is looked for in
both a wholesale and retail way.
Hardware Moving; Lively.
There was no particular change In the
Jiardware market last week. There were,
of course, a few minor fluctuations, but
nothing worthy of special mention. The
r reneral market Is in a good, strong post
Ion, with the demand fully up to the sup-
f'ly, so that the outlook for firm markets
or an Indefinite length of time Is as favor
able as ever.
The demand continues very active for all
seasonable lines and local houses had about
all the business they could comfortably
handle last week. They were handicapped
to some extent by the difficulty experienced
in getting prompt shipments from manu
facturers, but still this market Is well sup
plied In most lines. According to all re
ports received from the country there is an
active retail trade In spite of the fact that
farmers are very busy with their spring
work. Present indications point to a con
tinued heavy demand throughout the
Leather Goods a. Little Qalet.
The leather goods trade has not been ex
actly rushing for the last few weeks, but
till this Is a between season period and
obbera do not expect much Immediate
iuslness. The only trouble seems to be
hat the weather haa not been warm
enough as yet to bring lightweight foot
wear Into demand. Women's lines have
tnpved more freely than men's, but with
the first sppsarance of warm weather It la
thought there will be an enormous sale of
men's lines and especially of low shoes. A
few slxlng-up orders are being received by
local Jobbers, which Indicates a good brisk
trade a little later on.
Traveling men are still pounding away
on fall business and are meeting with good
tuccesa. So far the number of orders taken
a In exceas of the number booked up to
this time last year, ao that no one has any
complaints to offer on that score.
The rubber goods trade Is also quiet
owing to the lack of rain. There haa been
Very little rain so far this season in most
sections of the country tributary to this
market, so that It may be said that the
rubber bualness Is at a standstill.
Traveling men are taking a good many
fall orders and are greatly encouraged
ever the outlook for future business. The
Situation, though, Is better in this Imme
diate section of the country than it is In
the far west. A traveling man for one of
tho local houses who recently returned
from the far west stated that In the states
of Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington
and Oregon tha mildest winter on record
was experienced, and aa a result retailers
have a good allure of their last winter
flocks on hand. There was enough snow
n the mountains, however, to supply water
for irrigation during this summer, so that
retailers think spring and summer busi
ness this year will be very satisfactory.
Another feature which will help out re
tailers in those states Is the big tide of Im
migration which haa set In. In view of
that fact local Jobbers figure that although
their fall business will be late that It will
nevertheless be fully as good aa It was a
Fralta and Produce.
Fresh fruits and vegetables are now com
ing on the market quite freely and as a re
sult local Jobbers report a good Increase In
the volume of business. All such lines as
radishes, asparagus, rhubarb, wax beans
nd green peas are now being shipped to
Vhe country. Strawberries are coming from
' and Louisiana and are good enough
to ship to the country, lri view of the In
creasing supply prices are, of course, going
down, as will be seen from the quotations
given In another column. Prices on the
old staple lines have not changed much
during the week under review.
The egg market has attracted consider
bis attention of late owing to the excep
tionally high prices ruling. Commission
men state that the production does not
em to be aa large aa usual, while the con
sumption Is fully aa heavy aa It maa a
year ago In spite of the high prices. Stor
age houses, however, are not filling up at
rapidly as they did a year ago.
The poultry market was verv firm the
first of the week, but toward the close It
eased off a little In view of more liberal re
The butter market also held Arm tha
fret part of the week, but the feeling now
Is that there will be a big drop within a
very snort time, some aesiers look for It
the latter part of thla week and aay that It

Opening: Bulge In Wheat and torn

CHICAGO. April 19 Fears In the minds
of grain speculators over the weather con
ditions produced another nervous market
today on the Board of Trade. Bullish sen
timent predominated, though trade was not
brisk, and at the close May wheat had
(mined Vy'-sc and May corn Vo'ac; May
oats stood unchanged. Provisions closed
unchanged to 2oc lower.
Wheat was ruled by the weather. People
who sold late yesterday on the rumors of
rains bought In hurriedly at the opening
wben drvness was reported again and
caused a sharp advance. The small north
western and primary receipts also caused
alarm to shorts and Induced Rood buying
at times. 'J radera were firm In the belief
that the whole future of wheat prices
hlr.ges on the moisture that may or may
not oome to the relief of the winter crop
In the next ten days. For some days the
dry weather has been discussed, and as
days go by without the needed rain the
situation grows more critical and complex.
Southwestern news Is generally bullish.
Not only Is the winter crop full of dan
gerous possibilities, but the story Is now
pretty generally circulated that there will
be a very serious shrinkage In the area of
spring wheat In the three northwestern
states. Cash wheat is growing scarce here
and In the Interior, and this consideration
caused holders to stand Arm today. No
shipping business was done here today and
the export demand at the seaboard was
called poor. These worked against the
early upturn, but exceptionally large clear
ances of wheat and flour 778,000 bushels
together with the big bullish factors,
brought a good rally. May opened Hii-Vc
to Vt&Hc advance at 744c to 74c, and soon
sold to 74c. A dip to 74l4c followed on
profit-taking, but tha situation was strong
and May closed g'ic up at 74c. Re
ceipts were 40 cars, none contract; Minne
apolis and Duluth reported 103 cars, a total
for the three points it 143, against 186 last
week and 307 a year ago. Primary receipts
were lfH.OuO bushels, compared to 302,000 last
year. Australian shipments - were 248,000
bushels for the week, against 472,000 bush
els the corresponding week a year ago.
Slgna point to a marked decrease In the
world's supply next week.
Corn trade was only fairly active In
spots. The opening was W'tSc higher In
sympathy with the wheat advance, but the
demand was not brisk enough to sustain
the better prices and selling was free with
the local crowd. After the opening bulge
the market became a scalping affair and
prices eased to last night's closing figures.
Statistics were still bullish, however, and
frice of feed became something of a bull
sh character. Cash offerings west contin
ued small and receipts were 79 cars here.
There was aome talk of a better movement,
but conservative traders persisted In the
opinion that there could be no liberal re
ceipts here. Cables were Indifferent and
the sample trade was dull. May corn sold
at 62tc, eased off to 62c and closed Arm, Vi
bc up, at ezwai-
Weather was the feature In the oats
market. Drouth and the higher prices pos
sible for feed Influenced good buying early
for Investment and short accounts. Wheat
and corn aided In tne advance. July and
September both had good upturns and held
much of their strength. From appearances
there Is no longer a fear of a corner In
May. May opened at 'Jc and closed un
changed at 43o. Receipts, 143 cars.
Weakness ruled In provisions, with pork
much lower, ribs Inclined to follow pork
and lard fairly steady on packers' sup
port. Liquidation and weakness of the hog
market. In spite of a small run of hogs
caused the declines. It was reported that
the weakness of hogs was due to manipula
tion by packers The grain strength was a
feeble offset. May pork closed 20c lower at
$16.60, May lard unchanged at $9.75 and
May ribs 7ttfe-10c down at $8.1214.

NEW YORK STOCKS AMI HOXD9.
t'nlon Pacific Lends with Anlm;ion
In All Parts of List.
NEW YORK. April 19-The policy which
has been consistently followed during the
frescnt speculative campaign of large buy
ng and bidding up of some one prominent
stock aa an effective leader of the whole
market was maintained today, with Union
Pacific as the favored stock. No new con
sideration was advanced as a reason for
the buying, which carried the price up to
l"7'-i. where It closed at a net gain of 2.
Under cover of this sustaining Influence
there was an active speculation In all parts
of the list. The movement was accordingly
active, as taking of profits went on side
by side with new buying in a way char
acteristic nf an active speculation. Many
special stocks were under manipulation by
separate pools and some of the Industrial
specialties made sensational movements.
International Power touched 168 and fluc
tuated very feverishly. Chicago, Indian
apolis & Loulavllle was erratic over a
range of more than 3 points below last
night. Canadian Pacific was very strong
and there was a notable advance In United
Stales Reduction. General Electric was
depressed by the strike In the company's
works, and Sugar showed the effect of the
vote in the house of representatives to re
scind the differential duty on refined sugar.
Amalgamated Copper found some support,
but was feverish. American Snuff, Kansas
City Southern preferred and Minneapolis
& St. Louis made unexplained advances.
The loan contraction by the banks allows
that the resources for the week's specula
tion have been secured from other sources,
presumably the trust companies and tha
foreign money markets.
The money rate has remained sufficiently
high to invite further lending here by for
eign houses In spite of the demand on
money markets incident to the issue of
the new British loan. The large over
subscription of that loan Is evidence of the
abundance of money seeking investment,
and the fact of a large American partici
pation in the subscriptions without ad
versely effecting the foreign market, at a
time when commercial bills of exchange
are scarce and when there Is large selling
here of securities for foreign account, must
be accepted for striking evidence of the
large remaining credit resources of this
center In foreign markets.
The market has no help from the crop
prospects, regarding which the grains have
reflected misgiving. Long dreaded redac
tion in the 'Amalgamated dividend passed
almost unnoticed In the general aalmatlon
of the market.
Bonds showed some decline In activity
as the stock market gained, and there were
sharp reactions In some of the highly spec
ulative Issues. United States 2s advanced
H and the 3s registered, and old 4s, coupon,

BOSTON, April 19. -WOOL The Commer
cial Bulletin will say in tomorrow's re
port on the wool trade of the United 8tates:
Wool is dull. Demand this week has been
limited and even the Inquiry for sample
bags has stopped. Prices are steady, but
for most grades of domestic are purely
nominal In the absence of a test. The
large Importations of foreign were mostly
on manufacturers account. The tone of
foreign markets Is firmer. A great many
buyers have left Boston for the west this
week. In Utah, Wyoming and other sec
tions rales are reported at llttl2o, which
means a landed cost here at which the
wools could not be sold today. The re
ceipts of wool In Boston since January 1,
1SC2. have been 74.159.194 pounds, against 42,
415,900 pounds for the same period in 19t'l.
The Boston shipments to date are 61,611.
844 pounds, against shipments of 79,060,872
pounds for the same period In 1901. The
stock on hand In Boston January 1. 1902,
was 77,340.463 pounds. The total stock today
Is 72,338,785 pounds.

CATTLE There were no cattle on sale
this morning, so that a test of the market
was not made. For the week receipts have
been light, as a decrease Is noted both as
compared with last week and also with tha
same wtek of last year. Packers have all
been anxious for supplies and as a result
prices on most lines nave held up In food
The bulk of the receipts this week was
made up of beef steers and the quality
waa unusually good. The demand was bast
for the heavyweight and for the light
weight cattle of good flesh and quality.
Cattle answering to that description can
safely be quoted a little higher than they
were a week ago and In fact they are at
the high point of the year to date. The top
price of the year, ti.00, was paid on Friday
for a choice bunch of heavy export cattle.
The first half of the week the tendency of
prices waa downward on all kinds, but
toward the close the more desirable grades
regained all the loss and more, too, while
the medium weight cattle Just about re
gained the loss. Good to choice cattle are
selling from f6.40 to $7.00. Fair to good cat
tle are going from $5.90 to $6.40 and com
moner grades from tS.75 down.
The cow market has been very uneven all
the week. The first three days the tend
ency of prices was downward,- but on
Thursday and Friday the best grades re
gained almost all the loss. The common
and medium grades, however, are lower.
As compared with the high time, which
was the first part of last week, values are
2,Vg'40c lower, the greatest decline being on
the less desirable graded. Good to choice
cows are selling from $1.60 to $6.00. Fair to
good are quotable from $3.90 to $4.u0 and the
commoner grades are selling from $3.76
Good to choice bulls have sold about as
high this week as at any time, but the
commoner grades have been neglected and
prices are a little lower. Veal calves are
also as high as at any time, as a good
many veals are selling as high as 17.00.
Good stags are steady, but others are if
The stocker and feeder trade has not
been very lively this week. Receipts of
stock cattle have not been very heavy, so
there have been no very serious breaks In
the market. All kinds, though, are lower
for the week. The very best heavyweight
and also the choice lightweight cattle have
not declined very much, but the common
grades of all weights are a drug on the
market, as no one wants them. It Is
thought that the lack of demand Is par
tially explained by the fact that farmers
are beginning to feel the need of rain and
as long as that la the case it Is not ex
pected that they will buy very many stock
cattle. It would take a choice bunch of
cattle 'o sell up to $5.00 and a good many
rattle that could be called choice have sold
for a good deal less than $6.00 during the
last few days.
HOGS The receipts of hogs wera mod
erate here today, there being 6.500 fresh
and some 400 head left over from yester
day, as compared with 6,500 yesterday and
6 600 a week ago. The conditions were
practically the same as yesterday. The
market opened fairly active on good weight
hogs and steady to strong, while the light
and trashy hogs were all the way from
weak to 6c lower. Good heavy hogs sold
largely from $7.00 to $7.15 and as high as
$7.20 was paid, wnicn is mi mgnesi price or
the year. Medium weights sold mostly from
$6.90 to $7.00 and the light stuff sold from
$6.90 down. There was a fairly early clear
ance of the good weight hogs, but, the
same as uajal, the light stult waa very
slow sale and It was late before everything
was cut of first hands. Packers will hardiy
take the light stuff at any price and sellers
many times find It almost Impossible to get
even a bid of that clasa of hogs.
The tendency of prices has Deen upward
all this week and Friday proved to be the
high day, when the average coat of all the
hogs sold was t6.4. The total advance for
the week amounts to about 16c, which car
ries the market to the highest point reached
since the year 1693. Representative sales;

For export, however, the demand was of a
more active nature and this further
strengthened the staple cotton division of
the market. On print cloths business was
quiet, the Fall River market being closed,
owing to a holiday.
