nearer, the pole than any other national
standard, and wea therbeaten and disabled,
tha Peary Arctio steamer .Roosevelt ar
rived aere today under sail and steam after
sixteen months' vain effort to reach the
pole. Though not entirely successful, the
expedition nevertheless got to 87 rtegreaa
1 minutes north latitude, or within 3ui miles
of the pole. ' .
The Roosevelt left Port Aux Basque,
Newfoundland, at 3 o'clock yesterday after
noon and averaged flva miles an hour to
Sidney, experiencing light wind and rains.
The ship came to anchor oft the yacht
Nqundron pier. Though tha hour waa early,
the Roosevelt was noon visited by the
American consul and various local officials
and an Invitation whs extended Commander
Peary on behalf of the Sidney Board of
Trade to be tha guest of the commercial

experience served to strengthen the plan
f reaching the pole by drifting from

Touching the outbreak of the gale which
had unexpectedly come up In the Arctic
and destroyed the Ice bridge, Commander
Peary aald that the prevailing wind waa
westerly In the Arctic region, but It was
not always of the force of a gala. No per
son could anticipate the coming of a gale
either In the Arctic region or elsewhere.
He would not talk about the Wellman
Chlcago Record-Herald expedition plans, as
he aald he made a point not to discuss the
Ideas of other explorers.
The commander said his Immediate move

Dr. L. J. Wolff said the health of tha
party had been excellent. There was no
death and practically no alckness. Dr.
Wolff said that he had Hot the slightest
doubt, If the gale in the early part of March
had not occurred, tha pole . would have
been reached without difficulty. Dr. Wolff

NEW YORK, Noy. S3. R. O. Dun & Co.'a
Weekly Review of Trade will say:
Weather conditions have retarded trade
In seasonable stapio lines of merchandiso,
but holiday goods have begun to move un
usually early and in a volume that prom
leea satisfactory results. Wholesale bual
neso Is retaining a much better movement
than last year and further improvement Is
noted In collections. From the leading
manufacturing plants come reports of full
employment of machinery, yet dellveriee
are much less prompt than desired and In
adequate railway facilities receive a large
share of the blame.
Consumption of Iron and steel continues
to Increase so fast that there is little pros,
pert that producers will overtake orders,
and it seems more probable that they will
fall further behind. In structural steel
there la a seasonable reduction In new
business, augmented to some extent by the
high money market that does not encour
age speculative erection of apartment
houses, which was In danger of being over
done In some cities. Inquiry for pig Iron
la not diminished by reont advances in
prices, while Importations have greatly
strengthened foreign markets. Steel bars
for concrete work are one of the most ac
tive features and all railroad equipment la
ordered far Into next year. Rail tonnage
Is one of tho greatest Items of forward
business. Producers of cotton goods are
unable to make deliveries according to
sgreement, delays causing serious com
plaint from buyers. The pressure Is largely
due to the fact that there waa no effort
to provide for requirements until It became
evident that no concessions In pricea could
be secured and the manufacturer now con
trols the situation. Little attention is paid
to the fluctuations in raw material, the
governing factor being the time at which
the goods can be delivered. The only for
eign Inquiry comes from Red sea ports and
India, although China is no longer entirely
indifferent, owing to the belief that a syn
dicate has been formed to tnke up the ac
cumulated stocks at Shanghai, increased
orders for spring goods are reported In
men'a wear, but the principal woolen goods
business Is for the heavyweights. Activity
In the hido market is fully maintained,
most western packers being fully sold up
to current salting.
Narrow fluctuations have characterised
the grain market. Diminished receipts at
the northwest gave Increased support to
wheat, total arrivals at primary markets
since July 1 now showing a material loss
from last year's movement, but smaller
foreign buying and less activity at flour
mills offset the sustaining, factors.
Liabilities of commercial failures thtia far
reported for November amounted to It,
111.944, of which $1,1,SR7 were In manu
facturing, $2.i7,0OS In trading and 103.m
In other commercial lines.

In textiles, the strength of the demand
