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.

Gis'n Prices Are Well Held on the Board
of Trade.
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.
Provisions were dull and there was
enough selling pressure on lard from pack
ers to cause n easier feeling throughout
the entire list. July trading was dull and
featureless. September pork closed "ViC
lower at 18.82H. September lard was down
6c at 18.9IH and ribs unchanged at 19.J0H.
Estimated receipts for Monday: Wheat,
?0 cars: corn, 63 cars; oats, ISO cars; hogs,

Slight Hesitation In tho Violent Re
covery from the Big; Slump.
NEW YORK. 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. -

President of the I re; a Doek Company
Resigns Becanae of Poor
TOKIO. May .-Vta Victoria, B. C.
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.
Grants a Retrial of Libel Salt Brought
by Lady Cook's
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.

'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:

HOGS There whs a liberal run of hogs
here today for a Saturday, but puckers all
had liberal ordus. and as a result the
market ruled very scllve and u210c higher.
All the early srrivals sold In a hurry and
were out oi nrat nanus uy 10 o ciock. ine
early sales were not much more than a
nickel higher, but the market kept getting
better, so the general market shows an
advance of 6'a'lOc. The bulk of ths hogs
sold 16.06 to 1') 10. with the choice loads go
ing from $410 to $6 20. The lighter snd
commoner grades went from 10.02' down.
The receipts ot hogs for ths week show
a decrease as compared with the big run
of last week amounting to a little over
1.000 head. As compared with the ssme
week of last year, though there Is an in
crease of over 6 000 head. Ths demand
both from local puckers snd from shippers
has been In good shape and the market on
moat days has ben active, with tho tend
ency of prices upward. Friday wss the
only day when packers succeeded In pound
ing the market. The total advance for
the week amounts to about Soc. This ad
vance carries the market to the highest
point reached since May 23. Representative
