letter waa that all trust manufactured

"Bryan waa pleaaed with tbe idea." aald
tha speaker, ."end a week or ao later I
received a reply from him, saying that the
committee of ways and means, of which
he waa a member, bad taken kindly to tha
auggestlon, and that a movement waa 'on
foot to chrystallise it Into a bill. Later
I received a copy of the bill, but It never
became a law. It waa pigeonholed by the
committee for political reasons. Sine then
every democratla platform haa contained
that Idea aa a 'means of combatting trusts,

They are alwaya on the negative aide, and

republicans have discarded or else some

there are only two partlea, tha party of

aaid tha speaker,, "yet If he were to ba
elected to the prealdeucy where would he
expect to get hla majorities from surely
not from tha northern states. No, ha would
expect them from tho south, where two

Weekly Review of Trade tomorrow will
Aside from heavy ralna In Texas the
week crop news is encouraging. Manu

rule, iron and steel leading, followed by
textiles and footwear. Fuel scarcity la
still causing delay, although coke ovens
are surpaaelng all previous figures of out

At most polnta retail trade Is active and
preparations continue for heavy fall sales,
while heavy spring goods are opened with
good prospects. Keporta available for

and 30.8 per cent over 1900.
With bustnes In alg'at for at least a
year the leading depurwnente of the iron
and steel Industry may properly be con
sidered prosperous. Notwithstanding the
rapid increase in producing capacity con
sumptive demand has grown still faster
and the recent official report of a new
high record of pig iron production at 8,808,
674 tons for the iirst half of 1902 is accom
panied by the statement that unsold stocks
at the end of that period were only 29,861
tons, compared with 872.640 tons a year pre
viously. The first month of the second half
ef 1W2 has brought no diminution in Inquiries,-
but some decrease in output owing
to scarcity of fuel.
Imports are very large In order to keep
the ateel mills provided with material and
offerings of foreign billets have checked
the upward tendency of prices. In engines
and heavy hardware there ia a heavy
ahortage, orders for delivery In 1902 being
out of the question. Steel rails and struc
tural contracts have been booked far
In textile manufacturing the feature was
the opening of men'a wear worsted fabrics
for next spring, with a general advance of
1 to 10 per cent. Cotton goods tend in
favor of the purchasers, owing to the pros
pects of a large cotton crop and the light
Hhoe shops are active em spring samples
and buyers are numeroua In the Boston
market. A striking advance In leather this
weuk has followed the upward movement of
hides, stimulated by heavy purchaaes, a
single sale of 100.000 sides of hemlock sole
being reported. Hides have made further
sensational advances, Colorado steers
reaching new high record prices.
Grain prices declined sharply as the
month of speculative manipulation drew to
a close and legitimate trading resumed a
more normal holding.
Cotton held fairly steady, more because
of the large short interest than the floods

but the fall jobbing trade provea to be
later than usual In arriving. Soma weak
ness In sheetings and other cottons Is
noted In wholesale circles. Spring style
In woolens opened this week are, pre
dicted, shown as advances on last aeason.
Wool, though quiet, is steady and higher
grades are held several cents per pound
higher than last year. New business In
shoes at Boston la confined largely to
sample lota. Shipments, after a temporary
spurt, are again shrinking.
Leather la In better demand. Eastern
shoe manufacturers being reported taking

of high cost of hides, while shoe manufac
turers note high cost of leather and low
cost of their finished product.
New business in pig iron for 1903 Is still
of good volume, but not ao active - aa
earlier. Current deliveries are still delayed
or insufficient, though helped out by freer
Importations of foreign iron. The produc
tion of the fiscal year ending June 80 was
in excess of 17,000,000 tons, the output In the
first half of 1902 exceeding all records. If
the reduction In stocks and the increased
Imports are considered a consumption of
600,000 tons in excess- of this Is shown to
have occurred and the estimated out-turn
of 18,000,000 tons for the calendar year Is
seen to be practically needed.
Fully one-half of the steel rail output
for 1908 Is already booked, and structural
mills are also heavily sold ahead. Tin
plate mills are, however, not busy, sheets

active, especially for building. The 1901
record of building will be surpaased this
Lumber la stronger and Tilgher at tha
west and la recovering from aummer dull
ness at the east. Receipts and shipments
are far ahead of laat year at all points.
