FUTURE ORDERS LARGER THAN LAST YEAR
Bxeaptlonal Outlook tor Bonntlfal
Cvopa, Toaether with Advance In
1 Fvloe ot Cattle Gives Much
, Prouila for tke FotSro.' .
All lines of summer weight goods moved
'to better advantage laet ween than the
week be for, owing, no doubt, to the
mora seasonable weather. The demand
from farmers did not show any great Im
provement, as they were too busy with
their crops, but trade In general was In
Very satisfactory condition The fact that
crops are much more promising than they
were a year ago at this time gives to all
lilies of biiHlnr.rt un air of confidence not
'often seen. Rt-tallers feel that If they
do not sell quite as much of their stock
now as they anticipated, that the demand
will come lattr, and wholesalers and man
ufacturers reason that the season has
been a little backward, but that the good
outlook for bountiful crops Is sure to
make the total volume of business for the
year far above the record established last
Another encouraging' factor Is the sharp
advance In tha price of fat cattle. Until
the last three or four weeks feeders as a
rule were either selling tholr fat cattle
at a loaa or else were qpaklng no money.
At the present time, however, the market
Is fl per 100 higher and feeders are all
making good money.
Tha oontldence which merchants have In
future business Is well shown by the way
in which they are placing advance orders
for fall. Jobbers all agree that they have
mora orders fur full on hand at the present
time than ever before at this season of
tha year, and that traveling men are still
meeting With good success.
The markets have not fluctuated to any
great extent, with tha exception of gro
ceries, which move up and down more or
less each week. There la the same Arm
feeling all along the line, though, that
has characterised, the situation all this
Collections are reported' as being- quite
Sutra r a Little Lower.
Wholesale grocers report the demand for
their line of goods aa bt-ing of very satis
t factory proportions. The market Is hIso
In good shape and prloea on moat lines
strong. The1 sugar market, though, has
ased off a-little on raws abroad and as
a result refined grades are quoted about 6
cents per loo lower. Tha most Interesting
feature of the situation, though, is the
fact that the railroads have come together
on the rate question and have announced a
sharp advance, to take effect July 1, which
meana an Increase on tha cost of sugar of
17 cents per 100 pounds. Previous to tha
break some little time ago the rata from
New Orleans to Omaha was SO cents and
It wa.1 cut to 10 cents. Tha new rate Is
17 ceiiln. or an advance over the present
rate of IT rents and over the old rate of
f cunt. The old rate from Chicago was
17 rents, and that was reduced to 10 cents
and la now put back to 27 cents.
The toffea market still continues to
strengthen. Actual coffees have advanced
10V and the gvneral Impression now Is
that atlll higher price will ba seen In
the near future, particularly on desirable
Tha bean market Is quoted a little easier
than It was a week ago. but owing to the
fuel that stocks throughout tha country
are pretty well cleared up, It Is thought
that this weakness will be temporary and
that higher prices will be seen in the near
The cheese market Is also a little aaaler,
brought about by the exceptionally Una
condition of the pastures, which enables
all factories to be In full operation.
The dried fruit market has shown very
little change during the week under re
view, the demand being of a hand to mouth
character, as Is generally the case during
the berry season. A much heavier de
mand Is anticipated as soon as the berry
season is over. Any ordinary harvest de
mand It Is thought will practically clean
up the stock of apricots and peaches and
take a very large part of the present hold
ings of evaporated apples.
Interest In the canned goads Une Is cen
tered very largely lu spot tomatoes and
forn A large share of the spot corn held
In ths west has been cleaned up at full
prices and holders are anticipating an ad
vance of lOo per dosen. Any ordinary de
mand it Is thought will clean up every
case before the new crop Is available for
use. i -
The spot tomato market has advanced on
seconds 6c per dosen, and on standards liQ
Vc per dosen, according to holders. Pack
ers In Maryland claim that they cannot
pack tomatoes at prices now ruling on
spots without a loss of 2Wfrc per dozen.
It therefore looks to Jobbers very probable
that spots will advance to the prices now
ruling on futures, which means a further
advance of 6c per dozen.
The rice market Is a little higher than
It was a week ago. Choice heads have ad
vanced Mc per pound and fancy heads have
beers marked up So per pound. Any mill
which holds a good stock of Japana la very
Arm In Its price and the cheaper offerings
are coming only from such mills as ase
cleaning but their remnants.
Other staple lines of groceries not men
tioned above have shown very little change
during the week, prices being firm. .
Dry Goods More Active.
From the country comes the report that
the demand for all staple and seasonable
lines haa shown considerable Improvement
In the last few days. People are beginning
to feel the need of light weight clothing
and as a result they are buying quite
freely. Merchants now are doing very
little complaining and, in fact, are greatly
encouraged for the future, because of the
fine outlook for bountiful crops. They no
longer have any doubts about their being
able to clean out their stocks In good
. Local Jobbers teport that advance orders
On such lines as have not been sold up are
still coming In very freely and practically
every traveling salesman for Omaha houses
haa met with better success tn landing fu
ture orders this year than last. In fact,
the Increase over last year In the aggre
gate Is far beyoad all expectations.
The market la In practically tha same
position It waa a week ago. Prices are
firm on all lines of cotton goods and the
same, as has been previously mentioned,
those best posted on the general situation
do not look for any Important changes in
either direction during the present season.
That Is the kind of a market that is most
satisfactory to everyone, from the manu
facturer to the consumer, and Jobbera and
retailers feel safe In carry ing liberal stocks.
'Hardware Steady mmd Active.
The demand for hardware has also been
of very liberal proHrtlona The better
weather of last week enabled owt-of-door
work to proceed uninterrupted and the ef
fect waa very noticeable In the demand for
staple and seasonable lines of hardware.
Ketallera did a better business and as a
result their orders with jobbers were more
liberal. There seems to be no special fea
ture to the trade, as the demand la general
for all lines and In volume is running con
siderably ahead of last year.
There la practically nothing new to re
port regarding the market situation, prices
are Just about where they have been for
some time past with the exception ot a
few changes which are not of enough Im
portance to be worthy of mention. At tha
present time Jobbers say there la no Indi
cation of any Important changea going Into
effect during this season, as the market on
all lines is In a good, healthy oouUltlun.
Better Demand for Leather Goods.
Leather goods dealers report the demand
for their line of goods as showing con.U
ershle Improvement. Kvery warm day
brings out a large number of buyer, and
with the flrKt Indication of settled hot
weather a big rui-h Is sntlcipated. As a
general thing stocks out through the Coun
try are getting pretty wU ttrokcu, as la
shown by ths steadily Increasing number
of slzlng-up orders being received by local
Jobbers. Ia a short time It Is thought that
branch at the business will show a big Im
provement, aa retailers aid not buy ex
cessively, and with' even an ordinary .de
mand they will have to buy considerable
more stock before the season comes to a
Advance orders are still coming tn quite
freely and no complaints are heard on that
Fruits and Produce.
Strawberries are still the center of at
traction In the fruit market of Omaha.
They have arrived In large quantities so
far this season and prices have been ex
ceptionally low, which has naturally In
creased the consumptlow. Missouri stock Is
quoted now at $1.60 to 11.65 per case. Hood
river berries from Oregon are beginning
to arrive, and as they have become very
popular with the Omaha trade, it is
thought there will be quite a. demand for
them, even at the higher prices at which
they will have to sell.
California cherries are now coming tn,
carload lots and are worth $1.60 to $1.75 per
box. Texas peaches are quoted at $1.263P
1.60 per fourbasket crate, and cantaloupe
from the same state ere selling for S2.bu&
2 75 per crate. The .demand for all these
lines Is reported as being exceptionally
food. Gooseberries are also on sale at
1.75 per twentyfour-quart case.
There Is nothing particularly new In the
line of vegetables, except that prices are
gradually being reduced as the supply in
creases. The quotations on the different
lines will be found In another column.
Eggs, butter and poultry have fluctuated
very little during the week and are sell
ing In almost tha same notches they were
a week ago.

It Is doubtful If this trial takes place, owing

Of the thirty-three Indictments returned
