NEW YORK, Sept. 16.-R. G. Dun ft
Co.'s weekly review of trade tomorrow will
Industrial and commercial progress la
low, but none the less definite. Low
temperature and some Injury to crops pro
vide the only adverse Influence of the week
and this has little effect on manufacturers
and traders, who have started to prepare
for Increased business. Buyers of dry
goods, clothing and millinery are notably
active In placing orders and other staple
lines also feel the effect of gradually ex
panding confidence. Even If the official orop
estimates of September 1 have to be mod
erately reduced because of bad weather
since that date, there is full compensation
to growers In enchanced prices, and the
strength of securities indicates the faith
of the financial world. Many mills and fur
naces have resumed business because of
new ordero or adjustment of wade scales,
and prloes are steadier in most cases, with
a general advance In footwear.- It U not
unusual to hear- fall trade spoken of as
fully aqua) to last year's, although collec-
' Jions are not as prompt at several cities.
Freight traffic blockades are not as fre
' quent as they were at this time In 18(S,
. yet there la occasional complaint, and
earnings In September were 6.V0 per cent
larger than a year ago.
It Is not yet possible to repdrt any mate

who looked for an immediate rush of
orders, yet the business Is undoubtedly

oral shipments. Yet the present condition
of this Industry is no stronger. In the
woolen division there was decided Improve
ment In dress goods and fair duplicate
orders were received In other lines. Foot
wear manufacturers are still receiving sup
plementary orders for lata fall shipments
and plants nre in full operation, as a rule,
while producers are securing slightly higher
firloes. At the easier terms there has sp.
eared a liberal demand for Chicago packr
ildes. fully 100,000 being sold during the

ever, and. foreign dry hides are barely
steady. Leather Is selling more freely, all
lines showing Improvement, except glased

SIRAOSTRJSET'I REVIEW OP TRADE
Teadeaey Is for Improvemeat Aloag;
HlfiW YORK, Sept. U.-Bradstreets to
morrow will, say: .
While there are diverse movements In
dumestlo and foreign trade the tendency
as a whole Is for Improvement along con
servative lines. Buoyancy In the stock
market, possibly manipulated, and the
strength of cereal prices are factors stim
ulating to trade, but the advance of the
fall season -with cooler .weather In some
sections and the prospect of good returns
to the agricultural Interests despite the
heay shortage In the wheat yield are
all elements tending to encourage buying.
The feeling iu many lines is that as the
Season advances and the corn crop situa
tion beooruea clearer, the need of additional
re-orders will result in a fair volume of
trade, comparing better with fall business
A year ago than did last spring's trade
with the corresponding period of lnuj.
Hallway earnings reflect a heavy traffic,
roads already reporting indicating a gain
of 14 per cent over last August and the
best ever recorded for that month.
Telegrams to Hradstreels Indicate a fair
axpanslon In western trade, though buy
iut friM th sera-growing eoUuus U still

Pacific coast points, though Ban Fran
cisco wholesale trade la rather smaller
than expected. Southern trade advices are
best from the section eaat of the Missis
sippi. At the eaat Jobbing trad In dry goods
has Improved at Boston and some rush
orders for shoes are noted, but shipments
as a whola for the year are 8 per cent
behind a year ago. Demand for dry goods
at New York Is hardly vp to seasonable
expectations as yet. although a good bus
iness Is doing. Higher prices for spring
weight woolens are announced, based upon
the strength of the raw material, which
Is Armly held with an upward tendency,
the statistical position being a strong one,
The Iron and steel industry likewise be

In raw materials generally, though prices
are - cot notably changed. Resumptions of
finishing mills and furnaces are numerous,
but against this are to be noted shutdowns
of leading harvesting concerns and car
building Interests. Reductions in prices ot
finished steel have brought forth little new
business at the east, but plates and struc
tural material are reported selling better
at the west.

FLORIDA FEUD BREAKS OUT
Troops May Bo Boat to Saapress
taa Wsvrvlaa Factions at
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 16. After
two days of quiet In the country near
Baxter, an attack was made late last
night on a posse that was guarding the
home of William Baker, one of the par
ticipants In the alleged Duncan-Altman
feud. Ons of the mob, Ellis Dowllng, wa
killed and several wounded, according to
dispatches received today.
It was reported that Deputy Sheriff
Thrift, in charge of the posse, was killed,
but later udvlces Indicate that he was
merely wounded. A company or state mili
tia was ordered to the scene and has al
ready departed for Baxter, which Is about

heard the mob approaching along the rail
road track. Deputy Sheriff Thrift put his
head out of the window and was wounded,
but not seriously. He then led his fores
outside to repulse ths mob. Several of
the mob were wounded and Bills Dowllng,
a prominent farmer, was killed.
The mob then retired to ths home of the

Morrlsey of the Brotherhood of Trainmen,
referring to the ballot now being taken by
the members of the organisation on the
Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg In
connection with the proposition to strike,
There Is no question of recognition of the
brotherhood Involved. There are no Is

representing the men on the same basis

Pittsburg and Erie.
The questions Involved are simply the
adoption of the working rules similar to
those In force on other trunk lines In the
territory. Some requests for Increase In
wages have also been presented, which, of
coune, are debatable, but the men have
had no fair opportunity to discuss these
with the Pennsylvania management.
It Is expected that the result of the bal
lot will be known Monday next.
The lines to be affected In case a strlko
Is ordered are those Included In what is
known as the northwest system of tha
