Christmas trade la now In full swing with
Omaha Jobbers and the volume Is reported
unusually la,ge. The demand for staple
lines Is also very good for even this tune
of year and as a result wholesalers are
having about all the business they ran
comfortably handle. The cold weather is,
of course, responsible In a large measure
for the active demand for staple and
seasonable linen, as retailers are experienc
ing a very nice demand and their stocks are
going to pieces at a rapid rate.
Regarding the volume of business for
November, the general report from both
wholesalers and ina luf.iotunrs Is that they
cold more goods than aver before during
that month. The advance bualni ss in par-,
tlcular was 'aigs, as the healthy condi
tion of the market on most lines, together
with the favorable outlook for a good trade

Owing to the-Improved retail trade
throughout the country, collections are re
ported much better than they have been
at any time this fall. Retailers are now
meeting their obligations promptly and the
report le that JobTeis have very few poor
accounts on their ledgers.
The markets have fluctuated durlnr the
week fully as much as usual, but th're
seems to be a sirong undertone to the
market on moat lines, wth prospect favor
ab a for firm prloea ru li B for some time to
come. In fact. It Is predicted with a great
deal of conlldt rice tnat higher prices are
sure to ru:e in many cases at no niatant
djte and for that rs-son It Is argued that
merchants are making no n lst 'ke In antici
pating their requ iement at present prices.

Wholesale grocers report the volume ot

year. The demand for Christmas lines In
particular shows a good giin over last
year. Quite u few Important changes have
gone Into effect and among them is a aharp
advance In the price of sugar the first ot
the we."k. The market continues strong,
with an ..pward tendency and Indications
are such that silll higher prices In the near
future would cauae no surprise to those

The market for all kinds of cotton gocds
is still Ih a very strong position and In
view nf the excited condition of the mar
ket for raw cotton And the sharp advances
tne prospects ot lower prices or tne man-
faotured goods are very small. Those beat
ne ted say that the marV.et is bound to
hold fully up to Its present basla for a
year or until the next crop of cotton la
available. Not only that but Indications
could not be more favjrable for consider
ably higher prices ruling on a number of
lines. Not only are prices Arm, but It looks
as though spring and summer lines wpuld
pe even herder to get than they were Inst
season, wnicn is saying a good oeai. inis
being the situation, Jot,'.-; say It a no
wonder that retallero a;o MtUclpatlng the r
wants more than usual t J that their ad
vance orders are so far ahead of last year
that there' la no comparison. Up to the
present time jobbers have broken all pre
vious records for the volume of advance
prdera for spring and the principal reason
they tnink la tne upward tendency pr tne
market and the probable shortage of de
in speaking or tne demand ror spring
dress goods, a local Jobber aald that heavy
woven wash fabrics are In very strong de
mand for the eeason of 1904, and certain
desirable thlncs cannot be had at any
price, even at this early date, owing to the
aot tnat tne total proauciion or tne
pas been sold. Some very pretty work In
printed fabric for spring fa also proving
Verv noDular with the trade
In the line of woolen goods, mohair and
Sicilian In black, cream and color and
also In metal printed effects, are In very
heaw demand and no doubt will be more
rendv sellers this coming season than ever
perore. Neat rancy effects in wool r a ones
are ilro very good. Present Indication
are t"nt voile nd twines for next spring
will be taken more reaony tnan in any
previous season. If that Is the case there
will be an exceptionally heavy demand
for silks to be used for drop skirts and
linings for those material.

jobbers Is concerned they say they are

Probable Advaaee la Rahfcera,
Th general opinion among local rubber
goods men is that January 1 will bring
an advance In the Drtce of rubber foot
wear. Just bow much It will amount to
Is simply guess work. Borne think per
cent will cover It, while If It amounted
to 10 per cent a good many would not be
at all surprised. Some Jobber are looking
for a chmge In the list price, while other
think there will aim ply be change in
discounts. But whatever th changu may
be everyone seems to agree that It Will
pe an aavance.
Owlnn to this situation Jobbers are look
lng for retailers to anticipate their want
much a possible hetwaen now and the
first ot the year. Tne oola weather o
courae has stimulated the rubber business
very materially and Jobbare hav had
about all the business they could attend
to during tne last week or more.

There have not been many changes In
ruling prices, but those that have gone
Into effect will be found In another column.
Christmas treea and decorations are now
en sale, and the local stock Is said to be
Very large and complete.
The supply of poultry was very large
last week and as a result prices eased off
the latter part of the week. The quality
and that of course helped to weaken the
situation. The egg market Is also a little
weaker owing to a break In prices at east

"Not a woid," he answered. "I have
been here three years two In Cornell and

When Governor Taft waa mentioned Mr.
Legadameo grew enthusiastic.
"He Is a great man," he aald. "We Fili

may say he I one of the three great heroes
of Filipino people. The first waa Jcel Rixal,
who died for pur cause before the fire ot a

popularity ha waned of late. And last of
