THE OMAHA DAILY BEEt SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 1002.
CONDITION OF OMAHA'S TRADE
Jobberi Beport the Volume of Bniineu for
Hy Bt on Eecord. '
SHARP. ADVANCE IN PRICE OF TEA
Dry Oood Market Firm and Storks of
Fall and Wlater Good of De
sirable Grade Are Light la
In cheeking up their account for the
month of May local Jobber unit manufac
turers In nearly all cases And that they
sold mors goods than ever before during
the same month. That applies not only to
current business but to future business as
well, so that Omaha Jobbers are well
pleased with existing conditions. The fart
that trade Is ao heavy In the face of the
high prices ruling on practically all classes
of goods Is considered good evidence of
tha fact that people have money and are
not afraid to spend It. The ralnsof last
week, which visited a large part of the
territory tributary to this market, made
every one more confident than ever re
garding future business, so that prepara
tions for fall and winter trade will be
pushed even more vigorously than in the
past. Taking everything Into considera
tion, wholesalers say that more favorable
conditions cnirld not well be Imagined
than those existing at the present time.
Unless something happens to change the
situation It Is predicted that the amount
of goods shipped from Omaha this fall will
be far In excess of last year or of any other
Bo far as the markets are concerned
there have been only a few Important
changes during the week under review.
The same firmness on practically all lines
that has been ruling for some time past Is
still noticeable and It may be safely said
that the general tendency -of values is up
ward rather than downward. The demand
In a great many cases Is In excess of the
supply and a long as that is the case
strong markets must be experienced.
Collections are alao reported as being In
exceptionally good condition. Retail trade
was, of course, little slow early In the
spring, but now business in the country is
rushing, so that dealers are able to meet
their bills with considerable promptness.
Sagar Advanced Five Points.
Wholesale grocers report business for laat
week as being exceptionally heavy and in
fact some of them say It was the busiest
week of the year to date. The market
continues In a good, healthy condition and
a few lines have been advanced. The Sugar
market is quoted very strong and active.
On Friday an advance of five points took
place on soft grades, and, owing to the
heavy consumption, higher prices are pre
dicted on all lines in the near future.
Cablegrams were received last week by
local houses from Japan and China to the
effect that opening prices on the new crop
of test are considerably higher than they
were a year ago. It Is claimed that a
heavy frost In Japan during the month of
April damaged the crop So per cent and
as a result teas are now costing in Japan
104c per pound more than they were a year
ago at thla time. In China the market
opened JO per cent higher than It did a
In farinaceous goods the only change of
Importance Is an advance In oatmeal
amounting to 25c per barrol and case
have advanced from loe to 20c per case.
Cheese took a drop last week, owing to
the Increased make. Factories are now
atile to work full time and as pastures
are In excellent condition all over the
country lower prices In the near future
are being predicted.
Owing to the short supply, evaporated
apples are quoted a little higher than they
were a week ago. J'runes are also very
firm and especially is that true of the
larger slses, which are said to be well
cleaned up on the coast.
There has been no particular change In
canned goods, but at the same time
tomatoes are constantly firming up and
tocka are now exceedingly light.
Other staple lines handled by Omaha
jobbers are selling in about the same
notches they were a week ago.
Dry Goods Active and Steady.
There has been no change In tha ruling
quotations on staple dry goods during the
fast week. Manufacturers, however, claim
hat they are well sold upon both cotton
and woolen goods for fall. Omaha jobbers
ay they have good reason for believing
mat sucn is me case, owing to the diffi
culty they are having In placing orders
for winter stuff. Not only are manufactur
ers In the east experiencing a good de
mand, but Omaha Jobbers as well are
doing a rushing .business In fall gooda.
The distribution extends to all lines, In
cluding flannels, both cotton and wool,
domets, blankets, underwear, hosiery, duck
lined goods, cloaks and dress goods, in
fact It Is claimed that orders are twice as
targe ana more numerous than ever before.
The cloak trade la fast coming to the
front In Omaha, as one house claims to
nave soia as many cloaks ao far this
season as were sold all last year, Everv
one seems to be figuring that future busi
ness Is going to continue far In excess of
last year, owing to the exceptionally fine
outlook for bountiful crops. .
Current business la also of very Satis
factory proportions. Bales last week
showed a big Improvement over the previ
ous tnree weeks and a large number of
buyers arrived on the market. They all
had a good word to say regarding the
condition of trade In the country and said
their stocks were going to pieces at a rapid
No Change lu Hardware,
There have been no new developments
In the hardware market since last report.
Prioes on all lines are good and firm, but
there have been no ouotable chanaes
worthy of mention. The demand Is hold
ing up In good shape for all classes of
seasonable goods and In fact the volume of
pusines oeing transacted la considerably
In excess of the same time of last year.
i nere does not seem to be any particular
icurw io ine iraue. out simply a good.
neauny demand all along the line. There
Is considerable building being done In the
,rounirr, wnicn or course creates, a big
demand for builders' material. Everything
at present points to a continued heavy
demand -and Jobbers are preparing to sell
more fall gooda than ever before.
. . Shoe, Men Well Pleased,
leather gooda - men also have a good
word to, say regarding the condition of
Their traveling men are meeting
with great success in landing fall orders,
, owing to the good condition of crops, and
eaon week jobbers notice a big gain over
the corresponding week of last year In the
amount of gooda sold. Merchants who
earlier In the season refused to place their
SwtT". tor ehlpment are now buying
liberally, so that traveling men are taking
orders aa rapidly as they can get to their
euslomers. There is no longer any doubt
In the minds of wholesalers but what thla
will be the banner year In the shoe busi
ness of Omaha.
tilling up orders are also on the Increase
and every hot day makes the demand In
the country more brisk. Retailer' stocks
are aald to be well broken and the way
a1.L TP oriern are coming In would In
dicate that such Is the case,
? ' Fralta and Prodace.
The demand for fruits and vegetables
laat week was almost unprecedented. The
1th,t Pr F r extremely high for
practically all kinds of eatables did not
seem ta curtan the demand to an appre
ciable amount. The market is now sup
plied with home grown strawberries and
price are considerably higher than -they
V.,. w'fk.?"0' oni ,,oc now held
at M M to $4 60 per case. Lemons also took
Jump and are now selling at I4.5ti to 5.00
per case. Home grown cherries are be
ginnings to com forward, but they are
very scarce. It Is claimed that there will
only be about one-fourth of a. crop of
early chsrrlee. The later varieties, how
ever, will -be abundant If nothing happens
to damage the crop .
! The only old potatoes left on the market
re northern stock, which Is down to 2

MARKET DULL, BUT GRAINS ARE STRONG

Ip, While Oats Slip Down
After Initial Bulge.
CHICAGO. June 7 Excessive rains were
the bugaboo of the bears today, but this
session the cables also told of the same
bad weather abroad. In consequence a
little support In a dull market was suffi
cient to bring strength, and July wheat
iosea up. July corn VU'c nigner ana
uly uats a shade down. , Provisions closed
srtade to 24c up.
Wheat took a strong rtId on the market
early and worked Its prices somewhat
higher on cables and fears of wet harvests.
in ranee the harvest Is almost due and
prices are advancing on an old precedent
nat in tormer timea wet weatner, sucn aa
ev are havinsr. hurt the rron much. Here
ffere were plenty bearish influences, but
additional rains after the already heavy
downpours started covering and a good
support, bujis argued mat tne present
low prices could be Justified only In as
sirmptlon that the yield was to be excep.
tlonally large. There was very little sell
ing pressure on the market early and good
buying came from commission houses.
uly opened higher at 72"472Hc and
old at 724c. Gradually the suuport 01 the
larger Interests were withdrawn. The re
port that cutting was going on In the
soutnern part of thla state and that the
wheat would be on the market within a
week led to some selling and Julv slid oft
to 7174,f472c. After that the market haggled
narrowly, with a small upturn on liberal
seaboard clearances of wheat and flour,
which amounted to 61'O.OuO bushels. The
close was tlrrn, July c up at I2VC. Re
ceipts, 7 cars, 1 contract; Minneapolis and
Dultith reported 244 cars, a total of Jif.l.
against 392 for two daya last week and 4M
a year ago. primary receipts were 375,000
bushels, compared to 470.OOO bushels last
year. The seaboard reported 14 loadB taken
tor export. -
Corn was dull but firm. The wheat
strength, together with the strong cubles,
mnuencen an upturn, aa 01a tne talK 01
poor cultivation of the growing plant be
cause of the wet fields. The leading bulls
gave some small support and St Louis
bought July fairly well. Prices held well,
but there was decided feeling that with
the possibilities of a 2,5fln,Ouu,0fiu-bushel har
vest prices were too high. Most of the
crowd was guessing at the attitude of the
leaders. July sold between 63c and 627c
and closed firm, iic up at 634c. Re
ceipts, 337 cars.
torn took some of the strength out of
oat,s. Influences favored the bulls. Re
ceipts also are light, with a small per
centage of contract stuff. Today commis
sion house business was fair and July
opened Hkc higher at 394c and Bold to 89;o.
1 ne iraue active, covering snort ac
counts brought strength, but buyers of
new July around 36c realized their profits
and after the bulge prices eased on ab
sence of support. July closed barely
steady, a shade down a t 39Ai39i,:c. Re.
celpts were 112 cars.
Provisions had -a dull and artificial trade.
The hog market was higher on a smaller
run of hogs. This gave the packers a rea
son for manipulating a little higher prices
for the purpose of unloading on the out
sider. Conservative traders sav prices of
all provisions are too hlsh, particularly In
me- ugni "i improve receipts or nogs Of
better quality. January nroducts are now
selling on the basis that hogs will cost $6.00
6.25. Outsiders, understanding the manner
in wnicn pacaers are mampuatlng the mar
ket, are staying out. July pork closed
shade higher at $10.264j10.27Vi, and July ribs
4c higher at $10,174.

SEW YORK STOCKS AD BOSDS.
Last Market of Week tdle and Fluc
tuation bnt Fractional.
NEW YORK, June 7. There was no
change In the several repressive influences
upon speculation In etoks today and the
market was practically Idle In consequence.
The policy of the large Interests in stocks
seems to be defined as one of pernicious
holding until the underlying strength of
the situation emerges from the present ob
scuring Influences. Meantime the profes
sional speculators are apparently unwilling
to venture upon a campaign against values.
Today some Influence upon sentiment was
exerted by the strike of the soft coal
miners in West Virginia, by the increasing
difficulty of protecting the anthracite
mines from flooding by keeping the pumps
going with makeshift labor, by reports of
too abundant rains In the corn belt and by
the failure of the bank statement to show
any recuperation In the percentage of re
serve against deposits.
While these facts had the effect of abso
lutely killing any demand for stocks the
selling Induced was of quite Insignificant
proportions and the light play between
professional room traders, whose attend-
nce at the board was reduced to a mini
mum, was all that made the day's market.
There was a laxy and haltlns advance of
a large fraction in Canadian racmc. other
wise not a slnxle leader of stocks that
varied more than a small fraction. The
small decrease in loans by the banks was
Insufficient to offset the decline of over
$UK).0U0 ftf cash In reserves, leaving the
urplus slightly lower than last week.
There has been some liuuldation of spec
ulative bond issues this week and an Ir
regular tone In that department of the
market. United States 2s. realstered: the
3s and new 4s declined 4. and the 2s, cou
pon, and old 4s inr cent from the clos
ing can or last week.

CATTLE There were about 600 head of
cattle In the yards this morning, but only
a few bunches were for sale, tne bulk of
tne onering oeing ieeaera on ineir way
farther north. There was no material
change In the market today from yester
day. The tecelnts for the week have been
quits liberal, a a good gain was made over
laat weeK, dui a compared wun tne same
week of last year there is not much Chang-.
A good share of the offering all Che week
consisted of beef steers, and the quality
was fairly good. It was noticeable, how
ever, that buyers discriminated against th
half-fat and common steers to a marked
degree. The cattle that showed both flesh
and duality were In good demand most
all the week, and as compared with the
close of last week the market la steady to
strong. Handy weight cattle seemed to
be in greater request than tne very neavy
cattle. The best grade are quotable from
87.00 to 87.45. The part rat cattle, tnougn.
have been slow sale and prices have gone
downward at a rapid rat and are now
2550o lower than they were a week to ten
days ago. I'acaera claim tnat tne part rat
cattle do not kin out at an wen. and tn
faet nnmt them shout ar miK-h on thA hnof
a the kinds that they buy from $7.00 up,
The very best cow and heifers have
also held up In fairly good shape, but still
tnev are a little lower taun tnev were a
week ago. The commoner th quality.
though, the greater has ben the break
In price. The medium to common kinds
are fully 60c lower than thfy were a week
or ten day ago, and the market on such
kinds Is very slow. When It comes to th
rrrassy cows tha market Is still worse, and
n fact there Is no established market value
on such kinds. Packer do not want them
and It Is largely a matter or luck 'hnr
price a seller can get for them. Th.- :
on I that they do not kill out a . 1
as they will a little later In the season.
Choice tat duii nave neia up in goon
shape all th week, but the medium and
common kinds are considers oiy lower.
Feeder bulls have declined 25Hj&0c. Veal
calves have held about steady, and so, Alao,
The best feeder are not very much lower
than they were a week ago, but auch kind
are very scarce. The stockers, and espe
cially those lacking in quality, are a gooa
deal lower and the demand for them Is
limited. In a good many case auch kinds
are selling 26fle lower than they were ten
day ago. Representative sale:

HOGS There wa another liberal run of
bog her today, ao that th receipt for
the week lave been very heavy. Not only
1 there a big Increase over the supply for
th last several days, but slso over th
ame week of last year. Th demand, how
ever, seems to be equal to the receipts.
The market opened this morning fairly
active and strong to a nickel higher than
yesterday. Trading was quite active and It
was not long before the bulk of th offer
ings was out of first hand. Along toward
the last end th market slowed up and tha
advance wa practically all lost. Th close
wa slow and weak. The bulk of the good
weight, hogs sold from $7.26 to $7.36 and as
high as $(.40 was paid for prime hogs.
Th medium . weight sold largely from
$7.15 to $7.25 and th lighter load went
from $f.l6 down
AlthougM the run of hog ha been heavy
all the week the tendency of price ha
been upward. In fact price reached the
hlgheaj point ot th year this week and
th week closed with an advance over th
close of last week of 74(fjl0c. Representa

SHEEP There have been very few sheep
on sale for the last two davs, so that It I
difficult to tell much about this market.
The supply all the week has been light and
a decrense Is noted both ss comrtared
with last week and nlan with the um
wvek of Inst year. The quality of the of
ferings has been common and In fact there
nas Dten very little good stuff, on sale for
somo time past. In Chlcaao there has
been a big slumn in nrlnxa nil arming bnil
especially on ewes, bat at this point, owing
in inn nam rvcripis, prices on tne better
trades may be quoted very near steady.
When It comes to the common kinds tha
irarket In of course conslderabl v lower, aa
rone of the puckers want the part fat sttift
and those of inferior quality. It Is lm-
possible to state how much lower th
market Is, as there have not been enough to
tnnke s test of values.
