CONDITION OF OMAHA'S TRADE
Peculiar Local Feature Caused by Oondi-

.An Interesting feature of the week' Job
bin trade Is round in a reflex of the con
ditions at Ban Francisco. Owing to the de
struction of the wholesale houses tnahHt
city the local grocery Jobbers have oeen
Setting orders rrom Nevada, whose. trale
Omaha largely supplied twenty years ago,
but which has since been taken away by
the Uolden Oate city. The heavy staples
have not been aaked for, but numerous or
t ders have come In, and some of them from
points as far west as ITuokee, for coffee,
tea, tobacco and fancy goods. As yet this
trade Is not large, for western retailers
stocked up heavily In the fall, according to
their custom, and most of them still have
a plentiful supply of goods on hand.
business In all lines for the week has
been brink, and there have been some
changes In prices, most noticeable of which
was a decline of 10 cents In refined auaars.
In other lines some changes havn been
quoted In the general market, which have
not yet affected the local situation.
Owing to the scheduled advanoe May 1
of 6 per cent on rubber goods the business
In this line Is large, good orders coming In
on rubber goods for future shipment for
fall and winter trade. Orders for shoes
for the fall trade are coming in from trav
eling salesmen, the volume being In advance
of last year at the same time. Oxfords are
In good request and white goods for women
and misses are moving well Leather bolus
firm In price.
Dry Uoods Trade Improving.
The open order business from dry goods
retailers Indicates that trade Is picking up
In the country and has much Impioved In
the last few days. The order business
from salesmen has also improved and the
advance sale of fall good in continuing
very large. Cotton is unusually strong
and tniyers both large and small are pla
cing orders based on actual wants. Omaha
jobbers are making preparations for fall
on a more extensive scale thin In any
former season. Both the largor local
houses, whose new stores are In the course
of erection, have been compelled to hire
additional warehouses to facilitate the
movement In filling and shipping fall or
ders so as to give their trade und custo
mers the very best service during the
All departments of the hardware busi
ness show a large Increase in volume of
trade. One feature Is the increase in the
trade In nails,' the demand lor which Is
much better than last season. An sdvanoe
of 20 cents a box tor tin plate has been
named In the general market and the local
jobbers expect to advance prices within
two weeks. Cream cans and separators
are moving freely. Block tin has .jeen ad
vanced about 40 cants a ton. 1'ig Iron at
the mills Is up 25 rents a ton and steel
billets have advanced 50 cents it ton. With
out doubt this strength will affect the
prloe on the Omaha market. Wire Is sta
tionary and copper and lead are quoted the
same price as last week.
Palats, Oils and Glass.
The window glass situation remains
strong and prices are very firm. There
were no changes whatever In price since,
last week. Tno paint loudness continues
very heavy, this being th busy season in
that line. The demand la very heavy.
Turpentine is the same as last week, the
price being 14 cents, Southern lead is still
cents and Carter lead 71 cents. Raw
lluseed oil is 40 cents and. boiled 42 cents.
Drnpa and Chemicals.
Conditions governing tha drug trade are
more favorable this week than last. Busi
ness shows an increase and large order
re coming In from the Pacific coast. Ban
Francisco Is rapidly recovering from the
(ITects of the recent calamity. Two of the
arger Jobbing houses there are now receiv
ng goods ana preparing to rill orders. Mar
ket changes are few. Napthaiine bails, ow
ing to Increased demand, have been, ad
vanced in price c and axe quoted In bar
rels at 3c to ic The most Important
change during the week has been a declino
of 2&c per ounce In cocaine. Cod liver oil,
gum opium and quinine are dulL Camphor
Is very scarce and firm: very little to be
""liad'At any price. Prices range from $1.16
to $1.26. Quite a demand has sprung up for
the new official preparation of phenacetlne
acetpheneUdln. This is selling at Sl.M to
11.75 per pound. Alcohol remains firm, wlta
probability of advance. Wood alcohol is
steady. Sassafra. bark Is In active demand
and la quoted, at from 18c to S4c. Manufac
turers have made prices for the season on
parts green. Shortly After the price was
named an advance of 1 cent followed. Paris
green is now quoted, In kegs, at 24c; usual
advance for smaller packages. Blue vitriol
is held with Increased llrmness, being
quoted In barrels at 7c Oil cloves Is firm
at $1.00 to $1.10 per pound. Oil pennyroyal
is $1.6 to $i.OO. OH popperment is in active
' demand, $3.25 to $4.00. Menthol has been ad
vanced 25c per pound and Is quoted at $3.25
Cheese Is a shade easier, that Is, for the
new goods. October goods, however, are
scarce and firmly held. Brick and llmburger
cheese are lower.
No changes of any consequence are to be
rioted In coffee, some grade showing a
silently lower tendency. Because of the
pressure In May In the primary markets
there may bo lower prices within a week.
Reports from Braxtl are to the effect that
the new crop Is considerably larger than
last year, but, as usual, it Is considered
that reports from the growers and specula
tors of that country are unreliable.
The movement In teas holds up well, the
demand being especially good in Ping Sueys.
which hold firm. Prices show no material
changes from a week ago.
Another Drop In Sugar.
Refined sugar took another drop of 10
cents last week, due to the light demand
and the accumulation of raws in New York.
The price is now so comparatively low that
In the last few day several cargoes have
been bought up by speculators and a large
portion of this sold to Europe. It Is an un
usual thing when the difference between
the cost of foreign sugars and American is
so great. As a result of the sale to Europe
raws in New York were l-li-cent higher
Friday night, and undoubtedly any further
advance would result In an advance for re
fined. It Is the opinion of the local grocers
that the bottom has been reached and a
change for higher prices will soon come.
It will be three or four weeks yet before
the heavy demand comes for sugar to can
and preserve the small fruit, of which there
Is said to be a large crop.

CHICAGO GRAM A5D PROVISIONS
Prices on Board of Trade.
CHICAGO, April 28,-Covering by shorts
caused a firm finish In the local wheat
market today, final quotations on the July
option peing up c. torn snowed a gain
or hc tjats and provisions were practl
The strength of the wheat market late
In the day was due to numerous reports
from Stt Louis telling of damage to fall
sown wheat. The news referred chiefly to
damage In Missouri and southern Illinois.
The market developed a fair degree of ac
tivity during the Inst hour and closed
strong with prices st almost the highest
point of the day. The principal demand
came from shorts. Early In the day a
slightly easier tone was manifested owing
to selling of May by local longs, Dut a
fair demand by commission houses for the
distant deliveries tended to steady the mar
ket. July opened He lower to a shade
higher at 78VbTc to 79Hc, advanced to 79i
tt'TSTto and closed at 7Vu79!y4c. May rsnged
between 7&Hc and Vc and closed at 7c.
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to 207,000 bushels. Primary receipts were
200.000 bushels compared with 273.0UO bushels
a year ago. Minneapolis, fuluth and Chi
cago reported receipts of 198 cars against
108 ears last week and 185 cars a year ago.
Unsettled weather had a steadying effect
on the corn msrket. The volume of trad
ing, however, was small. Country accept
ances were small and indications pointed
to continued small receipts here. Firm
ness of cash corn was a bullish influence.
The market closed steady. July opened
a shade lower to a shade higher at 4oo
. a itiiMitu Mav closed at 4lu4Tc. lx-
cal receipts were 26 cars, with 77 of con-
iT!ri.tf2 iA nuti was oulet and feature
