The splendid outlook for future business
Is the one feature whlrh now c.rcjpbs the
minds of Omaha Jobbers ami manufac
turer. They all Are that the situation
coul-l not well l.e Improved upon ana th;it
unless something utieij'erte.i happen to
change conditions thrv will sell more cprtnn
good thla season than ever before. Hprlng
buyers are already beginning to arrive In
large numbers ami th; coming if-fk Is e
ectin to bring In mony m.re. m the tran
fmrtatlon bureau has now commenced
operations. The merrhants who have
visited the market ao fr all hnve a very
favorable report to make regsrding the
trade they have had thlet winter and of
what they expert for the future. The s!ie
of the orders they pim-e would also Indi
cate that they have considerable ronflrWtre
la what the future will bring forth. Travel
lug men are meeting with good lurwi on
the road snd say that nearly every mer
chant In the country tributary to this mar
ket la counting on paying Omaha a visit
some time this spring and that a big pro
portion of them will place their ordera be
fore leaving. Trsvellng aalesmen also say
that It la surprising to see how rapidiy
Omaha !s coming to be looked upon as thi?
home market for northwest merchants, as
well as thnee In the western half of Iowa.
The quick shipment that they cm gt
from thla market - m to be one of the
principal reasons for their preferring
irlces on most commodities Tiavs not
fluctuated to any great extr nt, dut Ing thj
week under review, but still there have
been a few changes worthy of mention.
The general tendency of rrlres is upward,
rather than downward, nn 1 values teem to
tnom good, I'.rm foundation.
So ear Market a Utile Higher.
The sugar market advanced 10 cents per
100 pounds last week and the market may
be ouoted strong at the advance, with an
upward tendency. Haws are also firmer In
London, while the demand In New York
baa shown considerable Improvement.
Tbe bean market Is stru- and active at
the last advance, while fancy hand-picked
Deans, free from etains, command u pre
mium. Main-damaged and discolored stock
sells VSuM cents per bushel lower than
fancy stack. The California market Is
very strong and holders are looking for
considerably higher prices, owing to the
lack of rain. .
In the line of canned goods future
largely occupied the attention of buyers
last week. So far as the market on corn
Is concerned the opening prices di not snow
much change from last year except that
sellers are very Indifferent and will not
consider any shading of their prices.
Standard peaa are "to cents per doien
lower than they were last year, while toma
toes are about the same.
The dried fruit market is not very ac
tive, although prunes, peaches and apricots
are all tlrnily held. That Is particularly
true of prunes. Evapo ated apples are a
little easier, but those best pi ted are of
the opinion that prlcea will go no lower.
The rice market la still very strong and
oven largo buyers find it almost Impossible
to secure any concessions. Still higher
prices are generally looked for In the near
t u t ure.
The coffee market Is In Just about the
same position It was a week ago. Tea Is
being held at very strong prices, although
the market at present Is rather dull, the
trade In general 'having all the stock on
hand that It will need for aome little time.
The prospects for the future, however, are
(hat prices will rule higher, as marketable
teas are scarce.
Bulk oats declined ty cent last week, but
five-pound cases and the rest of the line re
mains unchanged. The demand for syrups
is unstially large for thla season of the
year, but the market Is ouot.d the same as
It was a week ago. Refineries are only tak
ing orders subject to from fifteen to twenty
days' delay In shipment.
The demand for staple lines of groceries
last week was of very satisfactory propor
tions. In making comparisons with last
vear Jobbers find that their sales for the
Iret half of January are considerably anead
of ths asms period a year ago. .
Sprlasr Dry Goods Celling: Freply.
Fully eg many buyers arrived on the dry
goods market last week as were expected
for so early tn the season and they placed
very nice orders. Advices received Indicate
that there will be many more here this
week. The outlook for spring business. In
fa-t. Is considered very encouraging and
Jobbers all expect to break the record
made In 1W2. Bales for current use are
also fully up to expectations. The greatest
activity, however, la caused by the ship
ment of goods sold In sdvance of the
season. The distribution extended to all
departments, Including spring wash goods,
white goods, laces and embroideries.
The market for cotton gocds still retains
its strength. Peperll wide sheetings ad
vanced lc per yard Inst week and compet
ing lines were also marked up. All de
scriptions of colored goods may be quoted
Several large orders were placed last
week with manufacturers for blankets,
domets and other fall specialties.
Hardware Market Good and Firm.
Present Indications are that the hardware
market will be In much the same condi
tion It was last year. My that local Jobbers
mean that the way things look now they
will continue to experience a great deal
of difficulty In getting goods as rapidly
as they can sell them, which will cause
much annoyance to everyone, from ths
manufacturer to the consumer. As long
as goods are scarce prices will naturally
bo good and firm. Since last report there
have ncen no very Important changes In
quotations, but still Joblter say that there
Is a general tendency to harden prices all
Along the line. That being the cn.te. mer
chants who are well Informed believe them
selves safe In placing their orders at pres
The volume of business last week was
fully as good as could be expected for
January and everyone seems to be well
pleased with the general' situation. Ths
outlook for the future is even better than
It was a year ago. as reports from the
country Indicate that much more building
will be done In 13 than In 1!2. Farmers
In particular will consume an Immense
amount of hardware, so that Jobbers havs
no tear but what their suits will show a
nice Increase over lust year.
Rubber Prices Still Hold Firm.
There have been no new developments In
the rubber goods situation since last re
port. Jobbers are still hcMlng prices good
and firm, the same aa announced a week
ago, ami those best posted on the situation
say that there la no troeet of a demorali
sation of prices. Tim worst feature of It
Is that It has caused merchants to hold
back their orders, awaiting developments,
so that traveling men are unable to do any
great amount of business. Hut while mer
chants are delaying their orders, they will
of course have to buy sooner or later, and
as Jobbers are confident there will be no
break In prices, they are ;iut worried over
The leather goods trade la In very satis
factory condition. Traveling men are pick
ing up a gooi many orders on the road
and merchants are also dropping In town
snd leaving a few orders. As a general
thing, retailers have cleaned out their
winter stocks In very good shape and Mrs
now ready to place liberal orders for spring.
Fruits n Prodaes.
The demand for fruits and vegetables was
exceptionally Hunt last week for even this
time pf year, but an Improvement Is looked
for this week. In view of the Unlit demand
there was no particular feature to the
market and price also remained practically
unchanytd. The quotations In another
column will show the prtevs now In force
on the different lines.
The receipts of eggs were more liberal
last week and sa a result the market weak
ened a little. The same n true of butter
But the supply nd demand of poultry held
about even and prices remained unchanged.

market opened steady at unchanged prices
to a decline of 2 points, which was better
than expected, cables being considerably
wotee than had been looked for. Later the
tendency of the market was toward easi
ness under liquidation-of long Interests and
Indications of larger receipts. The Liver
pool market closed at a net decline of I
points, which was about twice the decline
required to match the closing ot the New
York market yesterday. Early estimates
pointed to receipts of 33. (v ba.es, against
J3.UV0 bales last year, while thu weather

parts of the cotton belt for a generally
free movement. Selling In the local mar
ket was checked by strong accounts from
Alexandria, with one came reporting 11
per cent dividends by soma of the Liverpool

secure proflti while shorts were the best

CHICAGO. Jan. 17-Forelgn news Was
agsin favorable to the bulls In the whest
pit today and the market was strong. May
closing 4: hiither. May corn closed V-'
lower, while oals were down '.B'sc May
provisions closed from 2c to he higher.
There was an active trade in wheat and
higher pries were released, the May de
livery making a new record tor tne crop
by selling up to ISc. Commission houses
apprareu have an anilmited supply of
orders to buy May and with otterings
rather light the market was extremely
strong, 'there was a slight reaction shortly
alter the opening, which was a shade lower
to tc hightr at 71c to 7V7sNe, due to
weHRness in the nurthwtet, and the price
declined to 77v'ii f'!c. 'Ihe easiness was only
momentarily and active buying soon
brought a rally, and there was a gradual
advance to ivc. Realizing during the closj
caused another decilne, but final figures
were Vjc higher at if vtj .c. A cable from
Liverpool stated that French prices were
closed to an importing baois, and there
were rumors of aome wheat having already
been bought lor home consumption. Pre
vious reports of serious damage to winter
wheat and rye In South Muas.a were con
firmed and Argentine advices were that the
weather there was very threatening. Tne
flour news from the northwest was also
bullish, and there was little in the day's
news to encourage the bears. Clearances
of wheat and hour were u.jal to 3tJ.oju
bushels. Primary receipta were 67 7.7'JO
busheis, against t31,.JO a year ago. Min
neapolis a:id Duluth reported receipts tit a-j
cars, which with local receipts ot 40 csrs,
none of contract grade, made total receipts
lor the three points of 3.w cars, sgalnst 41;
cars last week and &6i cars a year ago.
Continued liquidation of ccrn, due to re
ports of heavy country acceptances, caused
easiness In that pit, and In the absence
of any particular demand the market weaK
ened. Prospects of favorable weather and
larger receipts were bear factors. Tne clos
was easier, with May Vc lower at 434ti
43Tc, after selling between 43-V,c and 44stC
Local receipts were 433 cars, with only 1 of
Oats ruled weak snd the market was
fairly active, ths offerings being liberal on
reports of liberal acceptances from the
country. The freight situation was also a
depressing factor, one or two of the rail
roads having refused business tor the east
on account of Inability to handle It. The
close was easy, with May y c lower at
SOVcf'ToVfcC. after ranging between 3Hc and
36'c. Local receipts were 243 cars.
Provisions were extremely dull and prices
were barely steady. Except for some sell
ing of lard by foreigners the market was
without any special feature. The close was
about steady, with May pork 5c higher at
116.47V; May lard was iiH'oiic lower at
9 47'! and ribs 24c higher at Js.uTH.

Extraordinary .Apathy of the Public
Is strikingly Shown.
NEW YORK, Jan. 17-The public arhy
toward the stock market was Indicated
today by the effect of Ihe publication of a
wry favorable bank statement. lraders
had bought a few stocks In anticipation of
the gcou showing by the banks, out their
attempt to take pronta after the publica
tion caused a melting away of sains and m
some cases their total was wiped out. Tha
known movements of currency from the 1
statements 01 the banks themselves Indi
cated a gain of .0uo,im tj ti,'vw In ths
cash item, but Ihe attusl gain by the
average system ot computation shows a
rise or upward of l;.'.'.'). Last week's
statement understated the amount of tne
actual cash gain by about the amount that
today s statement overstates it, which is not
unusual where a heavy movement comes
late In the week. Today s large loan In
crease Is normal to the season, but there
has been no evidence of the employment
of so large a sum as $14,'W,i-J In the stock
market tnis week, and It Is supposed thai
syndicate operations unknown to. the peo
ple have figured In this Item. The Increase
of the surplus amounts to $j.4'.&i. ihe
comparative ease which has been reached
in the money market left only a languid In
terest In the bank statement. Only Mla
sourl Pacific. Atchison, St. Paul, Uhlcag)
Great Western, Louisville, Great Northern
preferred and American Car made any
noticeable show ot strengtn, and thir
gains were not wed maintained. Interna
tional Power was run up 9 points, but
dropped back 3. Ihe market closed irreg
ular. There has been some demand for lower
grade and speculative bonds during the
week. United States 2s have advanced a
points, while the coupons snd the new
coupons have declined a per cent.

CATTLE There were only Just a few
bunches of cattle in the yards today, so
that a test of the market was not made.J
ror ine ween receipts nave Deen a little
In excess of last week, and also of the
same week of laat year. The receipts for
tne year to date snow a decrease ss com
pared with the same period of last year.
But while supplies have not been excessive
at this point the Chicago market has been
flooded this week, about 75,0)0 head being
reported on sale at that market. The de
mand was hardly equal to the occasion and
prices suffered a decline amounting to 2uu
30c, which, of course, had some effect upon
the river markets.
Taking the week as a whole the beef steef
market at this point has been In very satis,
factory condition. The demand has been
brisk practically all the week, and each
day's offerings were well cared for. On
Wednesday prices suffered a little decline
owing to the break In Chicago, but the
week closed with prices on the more de
sirable grades no mors than a dime lower.
The half fat kinds In some esses may be
16c lower. The bulk of the fair to good
cattle are selling from $4.10 to $4.75, and
the better grades bring from $4.75 to $5.00,
while a finished load ought to sell consid
erably above those figures.
The cow market has also held up In very
satisfactory manner all the week. The big
bulk of the receipts consisted of cow stuff,
but still the demand was sufficient to handle
the supply without much break In prices,
About the middle of the week there waa a
little break, but the week closet! with a
strong and active market, and prices very
near back to the close of last week. The
choice grades are selling largely from $3.75
to 4.za, witn a tew saies BDove mat ngure.
The medium grades sell largely from $3.75
to $3.40, and the commoner grades from
$3.r) to $2.7a.
The market on bulls suffered quite a
break and Is safely 26u40c lower than early
last week. Veal calves, though, have been
strong all the week.
The market on strictly choice feeders Is
not much lower, but the general run of
stockers and feeders are l.Va26c lower for
the week and are very slow sale at ths
decline, as country buyers all want cattle
showing quality. Kepresentative sales:

HOGS There was not a heavy run of
hogs here today for a Saturday and the
market showed no quotable change from
yesterday. Trading was not particularly
active, but still the early arrivals were
soon dlapoeed of, but ten cars were late In
arriving, so that the close was delayed un
til a late hour. The bulk of the medium
weight hugs sold from $6.45 to $6.65 and
choice heavy hogs sold from $6.55 to $6 65.
The light weights sold largely from $6.45
For ths wek receipts show a slight In
crease over last week, but there Is a de
creaae as compared with the same week
of last year. Prices have fluctuated up
and down considerably, but there Is a net
aaln of Mi loo. The market Is now Just
about where It was January 8. Represents-

SHEEP There has been a good, liberal
run of fat sheen and lambs all the week

last week and over the same week of last
year. For the year to date there Is an
increase over last year amounting to over
The market at thla point has been In
very satisfactory condition all tne weeg.
1 he quality snowed considerable improve'
ment over last week, so that ths market
on puper looks higher, but considering the
quality the market Is on Just about the
mme basis It was a week ago so far aa
the better grades are concerned. The feel
ing the half-fat stuff, however, Is
Weill snd prices are perhaps a little lower.
That Is owing to the fact that the half-fat
stuff Is not killing out at nil satisfactorily
and If packer can get enough of the 1 let
ter grades to All their orders they never
lose an opportunity to pound the common
stuff. For that reason commission men
have been advising their cjstomers to hold
back their unfinished grades.
The feeder situation has not shown much
change all the week. Supplies have been
very light Kiid ss there Is quits a demand

One of the noteworthy moves In the finan
cial world that t attracting a gro.it deal of
attention. Is the pooling of Interests by
small Investors. A St. luis firm, the Na
tional Securities Co., Is the prime mover lit
the plan. This Company receives the money
of thousands of small Investors and com
bining them form gigantic sums which en
able th- m to success'ully transact enormous
denls that pay handsome profits to the Indi
vidual members of the pool. This ! anther
phase of the Community of Interest Idea
made so popular by J. Plerpont Morgan,
the only difference Is that this Company
Is composed cf an unlimited number of
sinnll Investors, while Mr. Morgan's com
panies are composed of a limited number
cf rich men. The National Is the first
company organized on this new plan, but
because of Its wonderful success It Is but a
question of a short time until many mora
will enter the field. It la a well known
fact that the man of money has thousands
of opportunities to make prntltabla Invest
ments that never come to the man of small
means. In popular language "tt takes
money to make money." By this successful
plan of combination the small Investor
with from fifty to a few hundred dollars
secures the snme opportunities that come
to the man of millions, and ai a conse
quence realizes the same enormous per cent
of profit on his Investment, however small
It mny be. It can be safely snld that a
more marked departure than this plan was
never made In the world of money and
those who take advantage of the opportu
nities offered by this company will realize,
more oil their money In a week than they
would under ordinary conditions In a
year. The general plan upon which tho
company Is ojierated does not materially
differ from thut employed by the National
Banks. The Investors of the company
occupying the same position as the stock
holders ot the bunk. Each and every 34
days a dividend Is declared and each In
vestor receives a draft for hla profits during
this time. Tho investment Is amply se
cured tAid investors run no risks whatever.
The entire capital of the Company, Otis
Hundred Thousand Dollars tJ!M..' stands
between the investors and loss. The ma
jority of the mammoth fortunes of this
country were made by almost exactly tho
same methods us those employed by the
National Securities Company. Combination
is Hie key note ot present day success. Ths
sinu.l Investor uy placing nut money wna
tout 01 hunureus and even thousands of
oilier small investors ootaiu all tne advant
ages 01 enormous capital uiid 111a money
earns aa mucn, dolisr tor dollar, us tnat
of the millionaire "v-uptains 01 ludustry, '
while small sums if Inwsteu alone earn put
3 per cent or 4 per cent, and ure usually
tied up lor long perlous ot tune, invest
ments in the National Securities Co. pay
mure than this each month aim are suo
ject to withdrawal at uity time. I pon In
vesting, tne investor receives u Ceriiucate
ot deposit stating on its lace that a turn
equal to tt per cent a muntn is guarunteeu,
paaole monthly, una giwng the holder
of the certiiicuttf tne rint to return tne
certmcate at any litiiu 1.0 may choose ana

tion one ot too greatest opportunities tor
sate and highly profitable Investment In
the entire financial world. It Is worthy thtj
careful consiuerallon ot any man who de
sires to rapidly accumulate a snug bank
balance anu yet huve his money Invested
where it is at all times subject to Instan
taneous withdrawal and protected troni
losa by a company whose financial standing
and reliability la ueyond question. The Na
tional Securities company la rapidly ex
tending its field of operations and to arouse
additional Interest has Issued a . booklet
explaining tully Its plan of operating and
giving fuil Information in regard to every
thing an Investor would want to know.
