Weather conditions and the labor situa

business world. Unseasonably high tem
perature at many points, especially In the
east, stimulated trade In wearing apparel
and other summer merchandise to an un
usual degree, but had a most unsatisfac
tory effect upon vegetation, which was

More conservatism was shown at the In

with check and, while no serious injury to
the great staple crop Is yet reported, the
delay to the plantlag induces caution among
on the whole there are fewer ware-
earners voluntarily idle, yet the spirit of
unrest ha caused the abandonment of
some new enterprises and postponement of
others, whicn mean less aemana ior struc

Payments are also lesa prompt, time often
being asked where formerly cash trans
actions for a sllaht discount were the rule.
Aside from these two adverse factors, the
trade is favorable, -and with average

prospect of continued prosperity through

CNDERLYISQ CONDITIONS BETTER.
Bradstreet Find Fairly Oood Condl
NEW YORK. May 22. Bradstreefs to
morrow will say:
While underlying conditions have Im
proved as a whole, there is still room for
betterment In weather, crop and labor mat
ters. Retail trade has been stimulated by
summer wear, but wholeaale bualneas halts,
pending further developments affecting fall
trade. Collections have Improved at a num
ber of large cities. Railway earnings ar
as good aa ever reported.
Gross receipts for the first half of May
Indicate a 14 per cent Increase over last
year, while returns for March show the sig
nificant Increase of IS per cent on net and a
corresponding Increase on gross. Iron la
drooping, largely because buyers ars hold
ing off on future purchases. Stocks don't
accumulate, however, and consumers are
Insistent for deliveries on old orders. Much
Importance Is attached to the possible ac
tion by the leading Interests as regards Its
supply of Iron for the second half of the
Steel Is firm at th west, but re-sales of
foreign? ateel at eastern markets led to an
easier feeling In the market for billets.
Finished products sr In good demand, the
wage scale in the tlnplate trade haa been
settled for another year, and the demand
for hardware Is very active, an element of
Importance in the present state of the mar
ket. Borne of the less favorably affected trades
are lumber, which notes the effect of the
building trade troubles; silk manufacturing
at Paturson Is slack at present and men's
wear woolens, which are still halting as re
gards fail orders. Cotton manufacturing Is
ciuimea io oe unprontaDie at present prices.
Stocks of cotton goods In western markets
have been marked up In price.
New business Is small with the mills, but
the Jobbers are making money because of
active retail demand. The shoe and leathor
trades are In fairly good shape.
The sugar market is steady. The eastern
small fruit and vegetable crops have been
Injured by the drouth, thus hurting the de
mand for refined sugar. Wool la steady,
with old supplies small, and new wool held
firmly at an advance on last year's clip.

Mickey haa set apart Monday, June 15, as

lamation: The flag Is the emblem of the nation's
sovereignty. Around, it clusters all that Is
Inspiring and ennobling in national life.
Under our form of government It guaran
tees civil and religious liberty, equality be
fore the law, and represents true progress
In the world of thought and action. It
stands for peace and yet is a warning to
tyranny and oppression, pledging the na
tion's power 4n the enforcement of Juetlce.
It waves In unstained glory over more than
70,000,000 of prosperous and contented peo
ple and welcomes to its sheltering folds the
oppressed of other lands those who ap
preciate the blessings of liberty and are
willing to subscribe to the principles upon
which their perpetuity la based. It Is most
fifing that our attention should occasion
ally be challenged to the significance of tho
flag and to- the lessons of patriotism and
honor which it Imparts.
In harmony, therefore, with a worthy
custom which Is generally prevalent among
the states of the union, 1 hereby designate
and proclaim Monday, June 15, 1903, as Flag
day, being the 12fith anniversary of the
birth of the flag, and enjoin upon the cltl-

existing without visible Oieans of support.
In some manner the accused was given a
tip, however, and left the city on a night
train for parts unknown. A deputy United
States marshal was also In the city yes
terday looking up some other alleged vlo
latlons of the liquor law. So far as known,
however, he took no definite action con
cerning the case.
