NEW TORK, Nov. 18.-R. G. Dun & Co. s
Weekly Review of Trade tomorrow will
Business was retared by the storms which
Interrupted telegraphic communication, but
the lose avas quickly recovered, and retail
trade responded to the lower temperature,
whlio a large jobbing distribution of holi
day goods occurred. Fall River mills were
reopened, but the operatives did not re
turn in sufficient numbers to keep the ma
chinery active, and there Is still difficulty
regarding the ore supply In the Conntlls
vllle coke region, which handicaps the
blast furnaces. Other commercial reports
are encouraging and. on the whole, condi
tions steadily Improve. Gradual progress
Is desirable, providing lees danger of such
udvances n prices as will curtail con
sumption. Confidence Is Increasing, par
ticularly In the steel and textile Industries
and building operations are very vigorous
for the season, while mercantile collec
tions are more prompt. Farm staples are
slightly cheaper In response to splendid
dispatches from agricultural centers, and
Severn! freight blockades have delayed the
delivery of grain and merchandise. Rail
way earnings thus far reported for Novem
ber are 6.6 per cent larger than Inst year.
Foreign trnde is excusing the most san
guine expectations. Official returns for Or
tober make the value of exports tlfi2.57fl.33.1.
exceeding every month on record, with the
exceptlr.il of October. 1", which reported
onlv IWO.ono Inrger exrr
From the highest fo- . s of machinery and
other finished steel products down to scrap
nnd pig Iron there Is evidence of a better
demand and nn upward tendency In quota
tions. Restricted supplies of coke have
some Influence, hut more permanent and
wholesome factors predominate. If the
na'ural disposition to Inflate prices Is ro
sisted there Is every reason to anticipate a
satisfactory vear's business In this Indus
try during 1905. hut recovery wPl be slower
If consumntlon Is discouraged hv prohibi
tive auotatlons. As the picker hide market
Is closely cleaned no. and ninny varieties
sold for distant delivery, there Is n tend
ency toward hlr"?r price, desntte the les
sened nctlvltv. This strere'h Is reflected In
leather, which has the additional stimulus
of continuous exports.
New Fnglnrd sho factories hive !aree
contracts on hand for spring dellve'v end
SRlesmen will soon start west with f-"
samples. Progress in cotton goods Is still
vcev slow, hut buvere are arrnduallv ex

BRADSTREET'S REVIEW OP TRADE
Reports from the Orest Basle India.
tries Are More Favorable.
NEW YORK, Nov. 18 Bradstreets' to
morrow will say:
Reports from the great basic Industries
nro more favorable and wholesale and Job
bing trade in holiday and spring goods dis
play a more confident tone. Interior buyers
uppear more willing to stock up and are
meeting wun rair success despite the fact
thatiutiaeaaonabie weather, activity In fall
farm work and bo me holding back by
farmers ri lards retail trade and collec
tions in the west and northwest. Cold
weather at the east and seasonable condi
tions at the south induce better reports
as to final distribution from these sections.
Trade generally Is allowing Improvement
over the corresponding period a year ago,
and the aggregate yeur'a business in most
lines will make better comparison than at
one time seemed possible. Money displays
remarkable ease, crop moving necesatties
are about satisfied and a return flow from
the country ia apparently in sight. Gross
railway earnings show a tendency to In
crease lnte gains and to swell earnings
for the year to totals above those of lDMi.
Net returns may fall behind last year,
but only slightly. Dry weather for winter
wheat is a flaw In the outlook, but may
yet be repaired with seasonable climatic
conditions. The coal trade is Improving:
Iron and steel are active and buoyant In
price. Raw wool Is higher on the week,
avalluble supplies being closely curtailed.
This tends to unsettle the market for men's
wear material for next fall.
There has been a material improvement
In Jobbing distribution since the election.
Cold weather will help seasonable goods,
such as heavy dry goods, clo'hlng. boots
and shoes. Hardware and groceries are
also active at western points.
Leather and Its allied products are strong,
the tendency of prices is upward and the
only doubt expressed Is whether shoe man
ufacturers can succeed in getting the
higher prices rendered necessary by ad
vances In the raw material.
Business failures In the United States
number 190, against 184 last week, 234 In

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Nov. 18. (Special.) Secre
tary Davidson of the State Executive coun
cil today secured final return from all the
counties of the state save Dubuque, on the
second amendment, better known as the
"Temple amendment," to the state consti
tution. The reports from the counties show
that beyond all question the amendment
waa adopted by the people of the state,
and that thus the constitution Is amended
In two particulars. The figures reported
show about 7.0n) majority for the amend
ment. This amendment Is for the purpoe
of rearranging the membership of the state
legislature so that each and every county
would have one member of the house. At
present there are 100 representatlvea for
ninety-nine counties, and the method of ap
portioning has been to give five or six of
the big counties two each and thus make It
necessary to group a number of the smaller
counties into districts. As soma of the
smaller counties are contiguous only to
very large counties this makes It difficult
to secure a constitutional apportionment
of the house membership. The amendment
was proiosed in the interest of the email
counties and camo from linn. M. I Temple
of Clarke county, whose county is one ef
the small ones, but which Is surrounded by
large counties. The amendment will give
the house as mnny as 1S representatives,
and there will bo one for each county, with
nine to be distributed among the larger
counties a extra memrers. Tlio amendment
will be hailed with delight In the north
western counties of the state where most

their offices If they were paid $4,000 out of
the funds of the company. One of them
afterwards agreed to go before a grand
Jury and reveal all the transactions, but
upon the advice of an attorney failed to
do so. The company went Into the hands
of a receiver Just as the attorney general

but he had arranged several weeks ago to
go for the one purpose of making an argu
