Montreal and Gulf ( St.
MONTREAL, Sept. l.-Fog. stranded ves
sels and smoke from forest fires have prac
tically brought shipping to a standstill be
tween Montreal and the Gulf of St. Law
rence. Latest reports received here today
from the stranded Allan liner Victorian at
Cape Charles state that It waa not moved
and Is now Ailing with water. Andrew
Allan was on the scene today with a spe
cially chartered steamer and extra assist
ance which was sent from Quebec. The
passengers have remained on board. The
Leyland steamer, Virginia, which went
ashore yesterday, near Crane Island, below
Quebec, was completely submerged at high
water today. Its agents here say that
they still hope to save the steamer.
Reports from points along the river tell
of one of the worst fogs and smoke palls
la many years. The forest fires raging
for miles along either snore on the lower
Bt. Lawrence river bave spread a dense
cloud of smoke over the country which,
added to the fog, makes navigation very
difficult and dangerous. Word reached the
pilot's office here today that all big liners
were advised to anchor at Batjlucan. above

DRY GOODS BUSINESS STILL HEAVY
Shoe Salesmen Rendy to Go oa the
Road Again With Cool Weather
Hardware Men Expect
Jobbers are pleased with the fine corn
crop that It now maturing, as It foretells
greater prosperity for them this fall and
winter, in three weens more it win an
be safe from the frost. Trade the last
week has been very satisfactory. The dry
goods merchants have been much busier
than they thought to be. The week be
fore waa one of heavy trade, on account
of the fact that the retailers were anxious
to lay In a supply of prints before the ad
vance in prices, and the Jobbers expected
a rather small business lust week. They
were agreeably mistaken, for both house
and order trade was as large as before
the advance In prints. Both hardware
and leather Jobbers are preparing for a
heavy fall tradn. Grocers are satisfied
with their volume of trade, as they have
been all summer.
The movement of coffee last .week was
as free as the week before. Prices are,
If anything, a shade easier. It Is a strug
gle now between the Braxillan speculators
and the American buyers to see who can
control the price. At present the Bra
xillans seem to have the best of It.
Dried fish are In good demand. New
Holland herring has come and It Is about
10 cents higher than at this time last year.
The situation on future corn haa been
changed sormwhat.bv a few of the pack
ers reducing prices', and others have
thought best to follow suit. Their action,
of course, has been Influenced by the In
difference of Jobbers, mnny of whom do
not care whether they get a case of corn
before the first of the year.
Short Crop of Tomatoes.
Tomatoes are Just as quoted Inst week.
From day to day gloomy reports come
from the packing centers. From south
west Missouri comes the Information that
packers probably will not exceed BO per
cent of their estimated pack. The follow
ing Is a quotation from a letter Just re
ceived from one of the Missouri packers:
VA grower who got his crop out earlier
than most growers, and who had hauled
up about twenty tons of his patch up to
last Snturday (having nine acres for his
patch), has gotten but ten crates since
that time, Ms crop being almost gone.
Says he will hove no more. There are
about half of our growers who hsve not
been ahle to haul any as yet. so that with
good weather from now until froRt we do
n"t think we can have more than a fourth
of a crop. It Is generally understood now
that the packera will take advantage of
their short delivery clause and not do
Uver a case more than they have to on
the guaranteed delivery."
Jobbers are not buying tomatoes to any
extent, but the situation remains In jui't
as bad shape as at any time during the
last three or four weeks.
A sharp advance has taken place In
two-pound canned blackberries, this ad
vance amounting to I0f?'.lc. In Baltimore.
Gallon unpeeled pie peaches have advanced
16c per dozen or more, while gallon peeled
have advanced 60c per doxen above the
Domestic sardines are a little easier, the
run of flsh during the last two or three
weeks having been very good.
Salmon Advances a Little.
The low basts of prices named last week
on red Alaska salmon has caused art
unusual trade In this article and it ii
now reported that fully 700,Vo cases have
been sold at the low price. This, of course,
means a very wide distribution of red
Alaska fish, and Jobbers generally be
lieve It Is not only a safe purchase, hut
sure to make the money. It Is learned
now that the Alaska packers who Inaug
urated thla low price have restored their
price to the opening figure, which is 15c
per dozen higher than their low price, and
that other packers are taking advantage
Of this increase in their price and selling
at something under the Alaska packers.

FROM PARENT TO CHILD
' The laws of heredity are invariable
and tiie diseased blood of parents is
banded down to children in the form of
Scrofula. Being thus deeply rooted
nothing can reach the disease but a con
stitutional remedy. The very foundation
of the blood ia diseased, and nntil it is
purified and made strong, those who sre
born with a scrofulous tendency cannot
bave the blessing of robust health.
Cleveland, O., 193 Brownell Bt.
I inherited Scrofula from my ancestry,
and this means, of course, weak, impure
blood and a ruu-down, debilitated con
dition of the system. Treatment of phy

anything I bave used, and with pleaa

been for some time, prices still remain
firm and there Is no prospect of lower
prices on flrst-clnss goods.
The demand continues for dried peaches,
with every prospect of present values being
sustained. A good many packers are try
ing to set released from a portion of their
contracts and sre offering, short deliveries.
It is an ussured fact that the packers aro
going to lose very heavily on peaches this
season because of short sales.
Small Yield of Prance.
Prunes are now In stronger position than
they have been for some time past. The
amount available IS from time to time be
ing reduced, until now the best posted
shippers say the California crop will not
exceed 6.'.ou0.000 pounds, against something
like 126.M),UUU pounds last year, to wmcn
was added a good many millions of carry
over. There Is no question, therefore, but
that prices on prunes will run high
throughout the season.
No prices have yet been made on raisins,
but these are expected early In this month.
As the situation Is pretty closely con
trolled by the Grower and Packers' aim,
puny, it is exported that prices will run
Most packers have withdrawn all offer
ings of raspberries. It seeias now to be
rather dltllcult to protect themselves on
sales made early. I'nder active demand
the market has advanced 1 cents per pound
In New York state.
Dry Goods Are Steady.
Dry goods are practically unchanged In
price from last week. Cotton Is still very
scarce and the market shows a decided up
ward tendency. It Is said that the mills
In all parts of the country are Instructing
their agents to talk 11 -cent cotton, as It Is
almost certain that mills will have to pay
In the neighborhood of that price for the
staple they need to fill orders for some
time. Since the mills have been so for
tunate as to sell their products well ahead
at their own terms, they mean to hold the
advantage they have gained. The only ad
vance noted for the week was one In car
pet warp of lc a pound.
Trade Begins In' Shoes.
Leather had no advance for the week, but
Is holding Arm at advances lately quoted.
There Is no Indication that It will be lower.
Omaha shoe Jobbers have shipped out more
than half of their fall orders and are pre
paring for the winter trade. The shoe
salesmen nre through with their vacations
and will stajt on the road this week for a
Short trip of a month or six weeks. Their
long trip comes a little later. It Is ex
pected that ' the fall will be one of the
heaviest trade that has ever been known.
