we-kly Review of Trad tomorrow will
Holiday trade haa exceeded even ths
most iianrulna expectations and retail deal
ers In all staple llnea of merchandise are
well maintained, with the better grades of
goods la brink demand. Wholesome con-Jl-leos
prevail In most sections of the coun
try, although In part of the southwest
tan season has fallen behind the average.
xet evn in these ease report are en
'nuraainr for the future.
Industrial planta are well employe d, or
rs tunning far Into the future and labor
-.ontroverate are rare. The only adverse
feature of the situation Is the fact that
upplle of fuel are utterly Inadequate,
both for household and manufacturing
uses, the snow Increasing with the deliv
eries. The railway earnings reported for De
cember exceed last year's by 4.1 per cent
and those of 10 by 10.4 per cent.
teel Trad Affected.
Two events of Importance have occurred
In relation to the leading manufacturing
Industry. The United Htates Steel corpora
tion has greatly extended tts scope by ab
sorbing many outside planta and certain
desirable railway connections. The other
was the announcement of advanced freight
rates to take effect January 1, showing an
average Increase of about 10 per cent on
products of Iron and steel. Otherwise the
situation is unchanged, the largest pro
ducer bavin over 6,aw,ono tons of unfilled
orders on Its books and work Is being
pushed as rapidly as supplies of fuel and
material will permit. Supplies of coke do
not Increase and many furnaces are idle.
Contracts for bridge work and track ele
vation are freely offered by the railways
and accepted only on condition that the
exact date of delivery shall not be specified.
Despite the fact that nail mills are sold
close up to the end of next year new bust
neea la offend and urgent buyers are com
pelled to go abroad.
New England producers of boots and
shoes are not seeking new business, which
comes forward moderately In the form of
supplementary orders. Prices are firmly
held, but no further advance Is reported.
Although the larger shoe manufactories
are fairly well supplied with sole leather
there Is a steady demand from the smaller
shops, hemlock was advanced by the lead
ing producer. Further deterioration In
quality of hides has again produced a
lower range of quotations in western mar
kets and heavier receipts of cattle add to
A reduction In quotations of leading lines
of bleached cottons stimulated trading,
many buyers having delayed placing con
tracts In anticipation of this change. This
condition of the textile market Is now in
good condition, with no Immediate prospect
of excessive supplies. Otherwise the do
mestic situation is practically unchanged,
but In export grades there has been In
creased Interest on the part of the buyers,
although few new contracts are placed as
yet in the woolen goods market there is a
fair volume of orders. In many cases ex
ceeding available offerings. Worsteds and
yarns are also firm, while a few grades of
raw wool secured another advance. Heavy
arrivals of silk have not weakened the

NEW YORK, Dec 19. Bradetreefs to

The wholesale trade Is quieting down,

Is conceded to ba the most active holiday
trade on record. Cold weather north and
west haa helped sales of furs, heavy cloth
ing and sl'lghs, and further stimulated
general retail buying. Holiday buying. It Is
noted. Is for a rather more expensive grade
of goods than ordinarily. Of course there
are some drawbacks, such as unsettled
weather or bad roads In the south. The
coal shortage In the east and the continu
ance of the railway congestion In the west
affects the movement of coke, bituminous
coal and general freight, but taken as a
whole the mercantile community contem
plates the approach of the end of the year
with complacency and satisfaction.
Knowing as It does that most of the
lines of trade will show gains over 19". and,
therefore, over any preceding year, the
feeling Is that the year has been a good
one, while the fine wheat crop outlook and
the volume of orders already booked for
next year give promise of future good
conditions. Even the knowledge that some
manufacturing plants are, like domestic
consumers, short of coal and are contem
plating a rather earlier than usual holiday
shut-down, falls to arouse the pessimist lo
feeling noted earlier in the year, when the
fuel shortage wu more talked about.
Hides have weakened sllgbtly, but leather
Is advanced 1 cent per pound by the trad
ing producer. Shoe shipments are better
this week, but will still fall per cent be
hind for the season.
Seasonable influences affect the great In
dustries. Building la lees active, but the
tone of the lumber market la one of un
diminished strength. The Iron trade pre
sents surface quietness, but some Impor
tant matters are taking place. The passing
of large Independent mill into the bends
of the leading Interest unquestionably
makes for stability In the departments of
wire, tlnplates and sheets. Bouthern Iron
ore Importers are Inclined to do business
for 19o3 at a reduction from fancy quota
Heavy buying of cars and other rolling
stock Is Indicated for the new year and
liberal orders for platea, wide and 'Struc
tural materials for 193 delivery are also
noted. Pig Iron and steel billets are quiet.
Irregular coke supplies harass furnaces
and Interfere with operations of the finan
cing of the mills. High prices of coke
and raw materials and higher freight rates
form a combination fraught with difficulty
to Independent mills.
Practically the entire rail output of the
country for next year Is already sold. Im
mense quantities of steel will be needed for
new car building. Hardware buying is
active for this season of the year
The glass production of the country this
year Is heavier than last by fully 10 per
cent. The recent advance In pig tin is
attributed to speculation.
Raw wool Is firm. Woolen machinery Is
well employed, and next year's heavy
weight goods are bought quite liberally.
Some reduction In bleached cottons is re
ported, resulting In a good business.
Eastern jewelry manufacturers report a
quieting down In business, but this is usual
at this period, and a fair trade has been
Rubber goods and footwear are active.

FIGHTS HARD FOR STATEHOOD

WASHINGTON, Dec. 19. Bernard 8.
Rodey, delegate from New Mexico, today
published on appeal asking aid and fair
treatment for the territories that are fight
ing for admission to the Union against the
powerful sectional and other Interests that,
he says, are trying to keep them out.
. He contends that the census Is Incorrect
as to the territories of New Mexico and
Arizona; that Arliona has not less than
175,000 people within its borders, who are
as intelligent as any people In the nation;
that there Is not to exceed 5 or 6 per cent
of Illiteracy In the population of the ter
ritory: that It is the richest mineral sec
tion of the United States, and that It has
absolute and prospective Irrigation projects
and possibilities that would give it rank
as one of the most prosperous of the states.
He declares that the Mormon question Is
of so little accord thero that it could not
figure In the territory's affairs.
New Mexico, he contends, has not lera
than 330.000 Inhabitants, of whom three
fifths are people from the states and their
descendants, and the remaining two-fifths
American citizens of Spanish descent, who
are the best citizens to be found anywhere.
He asserts there Is not 10 per cent of Illit
eracy In ths whole territory, and that It
haa the finest system of public schools and
educational Institutions, In proportion to Its
territory, anywhere In the country; that It
