tinued light up to Christmas. Usually the
trado fans oil four or ttve days before,
but this year, especially In hardware and
groceries, it has been sustained in volume
through the whole week. The wholesalers
expect a lull for about a week and then
a big business for the rest of the win

breaker in the hlBtory of the city's job
Collections, although fair all fall, have
been better the last week, owing to the
lsrge Christmas trade of country retail
ers, enabling them to meft bills for goods
oidered. '1 ne stocks of the retailers have
been largely cleaned up and they will be
compelled to replenish their stores Im
mediately. There have been no fluctuations In prices
of large consequence. Values are on a
sound, healthy bHSls, nnd if there are to be
any changes they will be In the direction
of higher prices. A strong feeling exists in
almost all lines and Jobbers are advising
their customers to lay In a supply of cer
tain goods before higher prices are named.
This Is especially true In shoes and some
lines of dry goods.
Dry Goods Will Advance.
Local dry goods Jobbers have been too
busy the last week to look closely to sales.
The wlndup of the year's business, tne
opening of new goods and the preparations
for tilling advance orders have kept them
busy In all departments. The order busi
ness, however, both direct and from trav
eling salesmen, has been good, even though
house trade has suffered because the re
tailers In tributary territory have been too
busy to lenve their stores. The retail trade
In all of Omaha's territory hus been much
iu excess of former years ond has left
stocks In Fo,.d condition for the beginning
of spring business. In a few days the
retailers will be informed of many ad

dealers are anticipating their wants In
lines where prices will go up. As a reflex
of the country trsde collections have been
better than usual with the Jobbers.
i ne Mme men are still waiting for cold
weather, when they expect to make up for
lost time. Prices sre still tending up
ward. l.cral Joblers say they expect tn
see shoe manufacturers get together soon
after the opening of the new year and
agree on an advance larger than hss yet
been made. It is said that on the basis
of present prices for hides the manufac
turers are doing business on too small a
margin, and If hides advance more they
will have to fill some contracts st a loss.
Omaha dealers sre now selling st $1.17 a
class of shoes which cost $128 laid down
In Omaha at the recent advances. Tlieso
shoes were formerly sold at wholesale at
90 cents. Yet It Is said they have not
kept pacs with the advance In leather.
Rubber goods are In small demand along
with shoes. The fall has not been wet
enough to clean up the stock which re
tailers had already on hand.
Lending; Grocery Staples Qolel.
The grocery trade Is very well satisfied
with the year's business. Holiday trade
has been sustained until the last day.
This coming week a lull is expected.
No changes have taken place in the
sugar situation, prices being practically
the same in both raw and refined. It is
hardly probable that there will be a
change In the next few days. No quota
tions will be made until Tuesday on ac
count of the holiday cessation of the mar
kets. Prices on cheese are about the same.
Mnai reinilera have secured their stock
before cold weather and consequently the
volume of business in this staple is growing
less with !- wholesalers. , ,
There Is some strength In coffee, based
on talk of a proposed export duty to be
made by the Braslllan government. Such
news comes every year, however, the lira
Lilians all being sellers, and, naturally, nuns
on coffee. Sevens are up V cent since a
week ago, being now quoted at B'i cents.
The market Is tlrm at present quotations.
Local wholesale trade has been good until
the last few days. Two large coffee ex
porting firms of Brazil have estimated the
imwini eron at a much smaller figure than
that of last year. One has made the crop
of Rio No. 8 at 250.0UO baga and the other
Managers of the flsh departments In

every indication that quotations will bo

last two or three weeks and Is still going
Bullish Feeling In lllee.
Rice Is attracting considerable attention
lust now. A local firm has Just sent out a
letter to the trade which shows the posi
tion of this article. The domestic crop
was only about half that of 1!4 and the
carry-over also only about half that of
1904. In all, about 3.750.0UO baps were avail
able for 1906, this amount to be cut down
by 200,000 bags for seeding purposes. Since
the average consumption of rice for the
last few years has been In excess of 4.50",
000 bags, the reason for expecting high
prices can readily be seen. The situa
tion makes It necessary to look to for
eign countries for nt least l.OUUiOO bags,
nnd at present Imported Japans are offered
at a basis of He to So above domestic
Japans. Jobbers confidently expect to see
an advance of He to Sc In Japs early In
the new year. The trade In rice locally
during the last month has been unusually
Dried fruit continues strong In all lines,
except raisins. Jobbers have had no news
from the recent meeting of the Growers'
Packing company In California and are
kept guessing as to what was don.
There is no change to report In the canned
goods market, with the possible exception
of tomatoes, which liave advanced atxiut
6 rents a dozen in the eastern market.
The trade In fresh fruit has been larger
tlisn was ever known before. The warm
weather has permitted shipments to be
made in box cars, whereas they are usually
sent by express, adding so much to the
cost of the fruit that retailers cancel their
orders when thev learn they cannot get
the goods by freight. Last year the fruit
Jobbers lost a lot of business Just before
Christmas on account of freezing weather.

CIVILIANS ON THE TRANSPORTS
Methods Employed by Offlcere nnd
Friends In Evadlns; Army
It Is reported from Washington that tho
War department Is renewing its efforts
to restrict the use of the transports to
officers and soldiers of the army. Simi
lar reports have reached us before. They
make perlodlo appearances, but the trans
ports continue to be filled with civilians.
Junketing political personages and the sis
ters, the cousins and the aunts of officers
and men, not to mention their wives, chil
dren and servants, while the young
subalterns continue to be thurst into
cramped quarters 'tween-deck to accommo
date persons who never wear epaulettes
or shoulder muskets.
The War department has not yet had
the hardihood to deny openly that families
of officers are entitled to free transporta
tion across the seas, but It tries to limit
tho size of the families, not Infrequently
with amusing results. Not many months
ago an Infantry captain applied for trans
portation for his wife, two sisters and
children. The allowance of sisters was
cut down one-half, only one being given
accommodations. However, he managed to
ring In the rejected sister as the nurse
to his child. This shrewd solution of the
problem looked lovely and everybody was
happy until on arriving on board ths
transport It was ound that, while the
wife and other sister were given cabin,
staterooms the nurse sister was assigned
to the steerage quarters with ths wives
of enlisted men. Horrible! The roar that
arose was heard 'way up Folsom street.
The threats of both sexes were taxed to
express their horror and Indignation. The
quartermaster captain was at once sum
moned and a lively protest made. Of
course the story came out then and the
fact that the alleged nurse was really a
brother officer's fair sister traveling la
disguise was Impressed upon the perplexed
quartermaster captain, who for a time
took refuge in a quiet stateroom to think
out the situation. It was finally patched
up In some way and both sisters were
taken to Manila, hut the nurse trick was
not attempted again by that family, al
though It has beu successfully worked at
Another officer with a wife and two sis
tors hud a less fortunate experience only
a few days ago. He had been ordered to
the riilllri'lnes on special duty. His ap
plication for his wife and two sisters to
scconipsny him wss frowned upon. He,
thereupon wrote to the authorities, saying
that his position, being on special duty,
was not akin to that of those proceeding
under routine orders on routine duties.
He was in a class by himself, etc. Back
from Wushlngtnn came a telegram Just
before the vessel sailed giving authority
for the two ulsters to accompany tho
officer, but directing that the wife would
