CONDITION OF OMAHA'S TRADE
Volume of Bninea for July Compare! Very
larorebly wilh July Ter Ago.
VERY FEW CHANGES IN RULING PRICES
Ontlook for m. I'rosperoas Fall Bnst
'" Considered Very Rneonraginc
nnd M holesalers Expect to
Break Last Year'a Record.
Although July la generally considered
one of li.u dulleHt montna of Hie year so far
aa wholesale trade ta concerned. Omahi
Jobbers make the report that they had a
"ry lair uusiness throughout the month.
Their sales run ahead of their expecta
tions grid also ahead of the sales made
during the month of July a year ago. Ho
long as that Is the case they do not feel
that they have much causo lor complaint.
At the present time wholesalers are very
busy shipping out their advance orders cf
full gooas. Owing to the fact that they
have taken more tall orders than ever be
fore has made It necessary for them to
begin shipping a little earlier and also to
greatly Increase their forces. A few fall
buyers are besinnlnir tr arrive on the mar
ket and from this time on a atoady in
crease Is eXDected. A srest manv mer
chants have expressed their Intention of
coming ine nrsi part 01 August ana oy
the middle of the month the rush will be
on. Those who went on the trade excur-
alon Into western Iowa came back greatly
encouraged over the prospects for new
business in that section. They said that
without exception the retailers In the towns
tailed were very kindly disposed toward
Omaha and expressed their Intention of
visiting Uils market this fall. It was found
that a large proportion of the merchants
who still go east do It from habit and
Because they do not realise the develop'
ment that has been amino- on in the whole'
ale district of Omaha during the last few
years. All jobbers ask Is that merchants
in western Iowa make Omaha a call, for
If they do that their future patronage Is at'
I'rlnes on most lines of goods are on
about the same level they were a week
ago. There have of course been a few
fluctuations ud and down. esDeclally In
groceries, but the bulk of the goods Jobbed
out of Omaha are quoted firm. With the
outlook favorable for a continued heavy
consuming demand throughout the country
those best posted look for healthy markets
tor some time to come.
Sugar (looted Steady
The eugar market Is In Just about the
lame position It was a week ago. There
has been no change on either raws or re
fined. The demand is reported aa being
very good for this season of the year and
tne refineries are still largely oversold
Shipments as a result are coming forward
The cheese market has been holding up
remarkably well and. In fact, loung Amer
leas show a slight advance. Those well
informed on the situation say that no lower
prices than those now In force will be seen
this year. Much, however, depends upon
me weather conditions experienced in AU
gust and September.
The bean market Is a trifle easier than
It was a week ago, but the demand con
The movement of canned goods still con
tlnues quite satisfactory. The demand
covers the entire line, but is particularly
heavy on California canned goods, stand
ard tomatoes and vegetables. There have
been no changes worthy of notice on the
market, but the advances recently quoted
on corn, peas and gallon apples are being
The only change In dried fruits is an
advance on prunes amounting to 14 cen
ner pound. The demand is still very heavy,
The rice market Is in the some position
It was a week ago.
In the line of fish, mackerel is quoted
higher with the supply very short. There
Is now small prospect of a large catch be
ing taken. Other kinds of fish are quoted
Just about the same as they were a week
ago and the demand Is very fair.
' The market for woodenware remains
Verv Arm. and there Is a decided Improve
ment noted In the demand for certain lines
of baskets. It is now thought that no lower
prices for woodenware will prevail for
some time -to come. t
Fancy groceries Including such llnea as
lollies and lams are in much better demand
than they were a short lime ago and the
higher classed gooas sell to tne oesi ad
vantage. The demand is thought to be
owing largely to the light supply of small
t ruitji. .......
Bo far as trade conditions are concerned
local grocery jobbers say that they have
been enjoying a very liberal patronage and
their sales have gone considerably ahead
01 last. year. .
Shipping; Fall Good,
Local dry goods jobbers are now devot
ins a large share of their attention to fill
Ing their advance orders for fall goods.
They are working the largest forces they
have ever had, and besides that they are
working them overtime so aa to get these
orders niled and out 01 me way oeiore
fall buyers begin to arrive very rreeiy,
There are.-however, auite a few early buy-
ore bes-lniilna- to come In already ajid many
more are expected this week. The orders
. that have been piscea so iar wns year
have been very liberal, and from that Job
bers judge that they are going to do a nice
business inrougnoui me season, auyiot
fmni tha pnuntrv indicate that merchant
nr niAuninv nut their summer goods In
food shape, and If that Is the case they will
ave plenty of money with, which to make
4H..I nil tilirchaMesL
The market Is In very much the same
cosltlon It was a week ago. Cotton goods
continue very firm with desirable lines eX'
aainntv .n.riHt and hard to obtain. It be
comes more and more evident that these
conditions will become more pronounced aa
v. ...r.n aHvanraa. As a result jobbers
r uiiviaina- their customers to get in tne
' .r. fcr 7all anuria, esneclally for cotton
lines, aa early as possible and In that way
be assured of securing desirable line. So
far as can be seen at the present time
those posted say there is no prospect of
lower prices on dry goods for some time
to come and that merchandise at present
prices Is good property.
Carriage Bolts s Little Lower.
The only change in tne naraware ron
of any Importance at all Is a slight decline
In the price of carriage bolts. This reduc
tion, however, was no surprise, as the gen
eral belief was that they were too high as
compared with other similar lines. The
general market situation remains the same
as it has been for some time past. That la,
goods are scare and prices firm. The re
cent reductions in some lines of raw mi

manufactured articles in the least and no
changes are anticipated. The fact Is pointed
ut that the cost of labor has been going
up, and that fully offsets any ""J"011'",0"

PLo'ally the trade situation continues very
-atlefactory. s Jobbers are enjoying a good
steady demand on all seasonable lines and
their sales for July show ft good Increase
over those made during the same month
of last year.
Leather Goods Firm and Active.
Leather goods jobbers also have a favor
able report to make regarding the condi
tion of trade. Their traveling men have
been meeting with surprisingly good result.
vt into and aa a result have still farther
swelled the Increase In sales over Inst year.
It seerrs that a gresi buu

t0ThTe' Is very little doing In the rubber
line, as practically all the retailers hay
placed their orders, and there will be but
little buvlng now until the goods begin to
move from the retailers' shelves.
Hoth rubber and leather goods are being
hipped' to the country as rapidly as pos
Fruits aad Produce.
Wholesale fruit men report the demand
for frish fruits as being very heavy. Csll
fornU fruits in particular are moving out
very nicely. Prices, of course, are grad
ually getting chtaper, as will be seen from
the quotations given Irt another column.
The cvl weather of the latter part of the
week rather cut down the sale of such lines
as watermelons and lemons, but that of
course. Is but a temporary lull. A few
home-grown tomatoes are beginning to ar
rive, but as yet the quality la very In
ferior. In a short time, however, a food
upplv la expected.
In the line of vegetsbles potatoes are at
tracting a good d-al of attention. It la
feared that ths dry weather about two
weeks sg, together with the wet weather
earlv In the year, has done much to cut
down the anticipated yield. U is predicted
that thtrre will not D mum over nair a
crop. Owing to these conditions the mar

price ha been advanced to Wiiifcc per
