THE OMAIIA DAILY BEEt SUNDAY, JUNE 14, 1903. at y G X0XD1T10N OF OMAHA'S TRADE volume of Business for Lit Week Larger Than for Some Tim Put ALL PRICES CONTINUED VERY FIRM Fall Orders Still lamia la FrF and Jobbers ny They Will Break Last Year's Record bjr a. Wl Margin. Trade ennflltiois In ths territory tribu tary to Omaha nave been rapidly rex-cverlng during the last few days from the effects of unseasonable weather. For some time past retailers have been doing considerable cran plalnlng about tha weathir and the conse quent light demand for summer weight goods. Traveling men now report, how ever, that trade In the country has lm- firoved greatly and the way In whirh sori ng up orders are being received by local Jobbers la still better evidence. Retailera were not dlscouragrd at any time, but were Imply diaappolnted. as they anticipate' an enormous spring business. They thlnK. however, that from thla time on they will do a rushing business and will make up for lost time. , , Traveling salesmen are sMIl taking- orders for fall shipment and whenever they find a merchant who has not bought his stork ff fall goods they experience little trouble In landing a good order. The upward ten dency of price and the favorable outlook for a lively fall demand make merchants willing to anticipate their wants. They seem to reallre that the late buyer will not only have to pay higher prices, but la also apt to be very limited In his selection of T-oUectlons are reported ss being mien better than would naturally be expected In vlow of the fuel that merchants hay not old as large a proportion of their fall goods thev anticipated. With normal trade conditions from this time on Jobbers say they will have no cause for complaint on that acore. ... . ... Values have fluctuated baek and forth to about the usual extent during the week under review. As a general thing, how ever, prices are very firm and the great mainrl'y of changes. It will be noticed, are !n the nature of advances. Advene In Sngar Anticipated. Wholesale grocers report the volume of buslreas for fact week as being very satis factory, and In fact say they had about all they could do to keep up wlt.h their orders. The market on sugar is reported as being In a very strong position, although no change on refined gredes has gone into ef fect. Refiners wire, however, that the de mand Is greatly improved rrom an section and that higher prices are looked for. The cheese market Is a little higher nnd particularly Is that true or loung .nmer r.m Twins remain nrsctlrsllv the same as they were a week ego. The make so far has been disappointing ow'ng o the con tinued cool weather, and the demnnd has been exceptionally heavy. All offerings so far have been freely taken, which explains the higher prices ruling on the Young Amorlcas. , . The dried fruit trade has shown a marked Improvement over any previous week In some time past. Almost every article In the entire line has been selling very freely and tdvances have been made on prunes, tins.ia snrtcnfs and armies. In the canned goods line the demand for corn and tomatoes has been brisk and corn has been advanced under the Influence of active trading The market Is quoted 2V,H Be per dosen higher than it was a week ago and very little stock Is being offered. While tomatoes have not been advanced the de mand Is very satisfactory, and desirable brands are selling at full prices. Canned fieas are also coming In for their share of he trade, while California goods are In better demand than they havj been for many weeks. Prices have been named on rths fall pack of California canned goods and show an advance of fl(g10c per dosen on tha entire line. Considering crop prospects local Jobbers say these prices are not un reasonable. . The market on oats Is In a very strong position, and whlla prloes on rolled oats have not been advanoed as yet higher prices are looked for this week. . . The coffee market Is In Just about the same position It has been for spme time and trading is reported rather limited. The tea market, however, continues very strong and buying Is reported spirited. Improved Demand for Dry Goods. Tha demand for dry goods Is reported much heavier than It was a week ago. The weather has not been as favorable as could be wished for, but still It la quits an Im provement over that experienced during May and tha demand for dry goods In a retail way la much better. Retailers stocks are said to be going to pieces at a rapid rata and aortlng up orders with Job bers are certainly much heavier. Advance orders for fall are also coming In very freely and Jobbers say that In spits .11 th. fHnnrta that were sent out of the damage done to growing crops by excessive rains, there were very few fall orders can celed. The general Impression Is that this was due In part to the advancing tendency of tha market and scarcity of desirable goods. In speaking of the situation on fall stuff a local Jobber said that the merchant ' who delays ordering staple lines of cotton goods will be short-sighted Indeed. All lines of cotton goods will have to be ad vanced and retailers who get deliveries of goods already ordered will be very fortu- nats. There never has been a time when desirable goods were as hard to obtain as at the present time. Thera has been no change In prices rul ing on staples except an advance of c on some lines of prints and other competing ..lines are expected to advance In sympathy. In fact any changes In the prices ruling on fl cottons of all descriptions must be In the fiktiatur of advances, according to the view f of those best posted. Hardware Active and Steady There was a much better demand for hardware last week than has been experi enced In some lltle time. The more settle 1 weather enabled outdoor work to proceed In Its normal course, and as a result build ers' material and all seasonable goods wars In active demand. ' Thera la nothing new to be said of the market, as all staple lines are in Just about the same position they have been for some little time past. Not only that, but no im portant changes are anticipated lor me near future. Leather Goods Selling; Mora Freely. Leather goods dealers also have a favor able report to make of the condition of trade. Retailers in the country sold more goods last week than they have In a long lime, and as a result slxing-up orders with local Jobbers war more liberal. Whole salers are now beginning to got orders tor luw shoes. Up to this time there has been wry little reordering done on that class of goods owing to the lack of warm weather, but because of the popularity of that style of shoe Jobbers are anticipating a good demand throughout the summer. There was very little doing last week In the rubber gooda line. Jobbers, however, have no complaints to offer, as they did enough business during May to be satis fied. They broke all prevluua records last month and aold all the goods they could get their hands on and are now content to wait a while. Krnlts and Prodaee. There was a good healthy demand last week for fresh trulls and vegetables. As the season advances the variety Is of course becoming larger and prices more reasonable. Strawberries reached the low point of the season last week, when good shipping stock was quoted at 12. 50. It was thought a week ago that the Missouri crop had been all marketed, but tiie way in which the car loads came in all last week proved that such was not the case. Ths supply of home grown berries was also very large, so that prices could not help but be low. Oregon berries srs expected on the market this week and Just what prlcea they will command la not known, but prices will undoubtedly move steadily upward from this time on. Csntaloupe from Florida arrived quite freely for this time of year end prices are now down to IS bo to 14. Apples have been out of the market for some little time, but a carload of Hen Iavls arrived last week and are quoted at 11 60 per barrel There Is nothing very new In ths vegeta ble line. Potatoes are still high, as the supply of new stock Is limited, end the market Is quoted at Sc per pound. Old stock la selling all the way from 8c to SSc. Eggs held Just sbvut steady all the week, the supply and demand apparently being about even. The poultry market can be quoted Arm and active. Butter, If anything, la a little higher, packing stock Iwing Quoted at 16o. The supply of fresh fish Is now shout normal. The high water this spring has made the supply short nnd as s result prices have been rather high. Nearly all Kinds though are quoted considerably lower than they were a week ago and prlcea are now considered quite reasonable. Evaporated Apples and Dried Frnlta.

EXTREME QUIETNESS NOW PREVAILS Poor Kansss Crap Reports Help Along Small Baying Movement In Wkeat Provisions Fall Off Slightly. CHICAGO. June 13. Extreme quietness prevailed on the Board of Trade today, and arter ruling easy the early part or the eea alon. wheat closed firm, with July H'uWc higher. July corn closed unchanged. Oata was SQVc higher. September provisions were unchanged to 7Hc loaer. Excellent weather was the chief Influence In the wheat pit at the start and opening prices were easier on quite general selling by commission houses, with July down Vc at Toc. There was a fair scattered de mand at the decline and a rally ensued, the market ateadylng around yesterday's closing figures. Bullish reports from Kan sas, snowing a poor crop outlook, helped In the buying movement. There was a better demand for September thnp for the near future and that delivery ruled firm. Late buying by shorts, together with a good de mand from a prominent operator, caused a firm close. July being M-tc higher at 75H 4l7Dc, after selling between 75'tf754c and ibMi'd 7oc. September closed He nigner at 72?iJ73c. after ranging between Tio and 73c. Clearances of wheat and flour were equal to Zi3,000 buahels. Primary receipts were 406.300 bushels, against 606.700 a year ago. Mtnneapolla and Duluth reported re ceipts of 286 cara, which with local receipts or 13 cars, none ot contract grauo, maoe total receipts for the three points of 3X cars, against 246 can last week and 239 cars a year ago. Trading In corn was quiet and the only feature was a scattered demand for July from local shorts, which had a strengthen ing tendency. Early prices were easier on the weskness In wheat and on the favor able weather, but buying by commission houses snd provision Interests caused firm ness later In the day, July closed un changed at 4SV4c after selling between 484c and 4Sc. There aa considerable change front July to September, and - tha latter month closed a shado higher at 47o, after ranging between 4"Hc and 47c. Local re ceipts were 838 care, with 18 of contract grade. Oats was agsln active, with July n urgent demand from shorts, which caused a mpid and sharp advance In that delivery. The more distant months were steadied by the strength In July, but the sentiment was bearish In their deliveries, due to the im proved weather." After selll.ig between 3714 377c and 38c they closed Wc higher at 3SH3Sc September closed He higher at S3 Sc. Receipts, 1G9 cara.

June IS. Some hesitation was manifest in today's stock market after the violent recovery In prices of yeatrday and the day before from the extreme de pression of Wednesday. Many of the prin cipal active stocks have regained 37 points during the two days. The effect has been to levsen the demand from bargain hunters and to develop soma selling pressure from the speculative contingent, wnicn was ior tunats enough to secure stocks at th low level. This element showed somo anxiety to take profits today and took advantage of the strong bank statement to sell stocks. The lessened demand wp s demonstrated by the Inability of the market to absorb these offerings, so that prices ran off sharply and clored generally hclow last night's level. The day s losses were generally fractional. Operations for the advance continued this morning, especially In Balti more & Onlo and In Reading, the former stock rising Rt oro time nearly 2 points and tn latter a point, 'ine large earnings re ported by the Baltimore & Ohio were the motive for buying the stock nnd reports were current that Reading would show ex traordinary earnings for May. The de cision against the right of the Interstate Commerce commission to exact certain In formation from the coal carriers also was made much of by the buyers of Reading. Some of the Inactive stocks which had suffered from recent heavy declines were bid up rapidly today, members of the Canadian group being conspicuous. The loan contraction of 111.776.100 by the banks was regarded as gratifying evidence that th stock market liquidation had at last be come effective In the recuperation of bank resources. The cash Increase of about $1,760,000 about agreed with the expecta tions The rise of $4,801,626 In the surplus about makes good last week's loss. The statement was as good as expected In every respect, but the demand for stocks thus In duced was not sufficient to absorb the ssles to take profits. Bonds have moved more narrowly, but In sympathy with stccks. United States 2s and 3s advanced per cent and the new 4s per cent, as compared with the clos ing call of last week. - Following are the quotations on the New York Stock exchange: Atchlxm tW4 sir.

June 13.) A sensation was caused today by the announcement that Mr. Tsukahara, president of the Urga Dock company, had resigned his position in consequence of the failure of his Company to turn out United States gunboats for the Philippine govern ment In accordance with specifications. Two boats have been rejected by Governor Taft and the remaining three are said to be equally inadequate. The Chinese riots in Kwang 81 province havs developed in violence and it Is un officially reported that the French consul at Tonquln has reported to the Peking government that unless the insurgents are suppressed French troops will be sent across ths frontier to qusll the dis turbances. Tha Japanese cruiser Toklo, which was one of the first warships captured from China during the war of 1894-5, ran ashors May 22, during a snow storm off Shakotan, Nemuro province. The vessel does hot ap pear to be much damaged but la exposed to the storms. Nineteen sailors have been drowi.ed or froten to death. Tha warship which Korea had intended to buy from a Japanese company has not yet been handed over, as tha Korean government has not paid for It. The minister of war who mads tha deal has resigned, pleading Illness to escape the dilemma arising out of ths deal. Ths Malnlchla publishes a dispatch giving the alleged history of the Manchurlan secrt treaty on the authority of a minister who said that China had refused to comply with the Russian demands and that M. Plan chou, acting Prussian minister, had wired to Europe and that China had accepted, After the powers protested, China sent another refusal to Russia, which govern ment paid no attention to tt. The Russians have not withdrawn their demands, which, presumably, are still lying on the table of the Chinese foreign minister.. The minister states that the secret treaty will probably be signed privately and it Is Imperative that Japan should assist China In resisting ths Russian demands. JUDGE CALLS IT BLACKMAIL Grants a Retrial of Libel Salt Brought by Lady Cook's Secretary. LONDON. June IS. The appeal court to day granted tha application of Lady Cook, formerly Miss Tennessee Claflin of New Tork, for a retrial of the charge brought against her by J. H. Wallace, her former private secretary, who was granted a ver dict of $2,750 on the plea of libel. Lady Cook's counsel said Wallace hnd alleged that she extorted a check for $320,000 from her lats husband on the threat that she would expose the liaison, and counsel also said Wallace alleged that Sir Francis Cook's death was due to a blow struck by Lady Cook In their home. Counsel asserted that these statements, which wers not brought up at the flrst trial, were made by Wallace solely with tha view of terrorizing Lady Cook. Ths master of ths rolls, In giving judgment, characterised the Wallace suit as a black mailing action and said ths verdict could not be allowed to stand. Insane Sailor Fires at Consnl. HAVANA.

Totals W 8,669 'CATTLE Receipts ot cattle this week have been fairly liberal, as there is a bain over the same day of last year amounting to about 8,000 head. As compared with the enormous run of last week, however, there Is a decrease of about 6.000 head. The de mand has been very heavy all the week In view of the fact that Kansas City and St. Louis were shut down, and all the arrivals met with ready sale at much higher prices than were paid last week. Beef steers made up the big buulk of the offerings, but there wers none too many to supply the demand. Local buyers all had heavy orders and besides that there was a good shipping demand. The market was higher and active every day until Friday, when, owing to heavy receipts at the end of the week, packers succeeded In taking off 6'iilOc. The net gain for the week, nowever, is tuny wflwc, or, as com pared with the low time, which was last week Thursday, the advance amounts to fully 60c. All grades have Joined in' this advance, the common as well as the good, the heavy as well as the handy weights. The bulk of the fair to good eteers now coming forward are selling from $4.66 to 6.00. with the choicer grades going mostly from $6.00 to $5.26. The commoner grades sell largely from $4.00 to $4 .60. The cow market was also active and stronger all the week. Cow stuff, however, did not suffer ss badly last week as, steers, and as a result the advance this week wss not ss radical. Good cows may sarely bs quoted 25c higher for the week, or 2&fr86c higher than the low time last Thursday. Choice to fancy heifers, such as have been selling from 14.80 to 14.85. are prob ably right around 40c higher than the low time. The commoner grades of cows are now selling mostly from 12.26 to $3.25, with the bulk of the fair to good grades going from $3.50 to $4.25, and the choice to fancy from $4.25 to 14.60. Bulls are safely 15-3 26c higher for the week, the bulk selling from 13.00 to $1.10. Venl calves sre about 60c higher than the low time, choice grades selling as high as $4.60. Stas have also advanced In sym pathv with steers. The supply of stockers and feeders has been very limited nil the week, snd so also has the demsnd. The tendency of prices has been downward all the week, and most grades are right close to n quarter lower for the week. Representative sales: BEEF STEERS. No r. Fr. No AT. Pr.
