Authorities Do -Not Believe
They Will Spread.
Owing to the discovery of several cases
of diphtheria and scarlet fever among the
pupils of the srhools, the Board of Educa
tion ordered the Bloomer school closed at
noon yesterday. Supervisor of Buildings
Lfutilnger had a force of men disinfecting
the building during the afternoon, and all
of the rooms will be thoroughly fumigated
today .and Sunday. It Is the Intention at
present to reopen the school Monday.
President Tlnley said yesterday afternoon
that the other members of the board were
not satisfied that there was contagion In
the Bloomer school, although there were
several cases of diphtheria and scarlet
fever among the pupils In that building. !
Investigation by the school officers leads
to the belief that the disease In these cases
may have been contracted outside of
school. The board, however, deemed It
best to take every possible precaution and
ordered the Bchool closed so that It might
be thoroughly disinfected and fumigated.
Several cases of diphtheria among the
pupils of the North Eighth street school
were reported, but the board did not be
lieve that the conditions warranted closing
It was stated that a special meeting of
the Board of Education to consider what
further , precautions, if any, should be
taken, will be held this afternoon.
The records of the city health officer,
Dr. Bowers, show that several families
have been quarantined during the last few

DUN'S REVIEW OF TRADE
Activity in Various Trades, with Big
Gains in Many Branches.
RAILROADS ARE HEAVY BUYERS
ron and Steel Trade Improves Ac
cordlnaly Higher Prices In Dry
Goods Market Footwear
NEW YORK, Oct. 15. R. G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade tomorrow will
Renewed buying of rolling stock by the
railroads Is the conspicuous development
of the week in the Iron and steel trade. Re
ports Indicate that orders are being plared
with some urgency, and that considerable
new business is under negotiation. Activity
at steel works Is reflected In continued
heavy purchases of piglron at many points.
and further advances In prices are an
nounced. One contract for 20,000 tons of
Bessemer at $19 Is reported. The struc
tural shops are receiving a moderate
amount of new business.
Trade in dry goods shows steady gain,
and the higher prices In the primary mar
kets, forced by the sustained high costs of
raw materials, are now quite freely paid.
Curtailment of production in cotton mills
amounting to 224 working hours at conven
ient dates between now and. August, has
been virtually agreed upon.
Sales of print cloths at Fall River last
week almost equalled production, 80.000
pieces spots and 150.000 futures. Trading in
wide cloths continues active and prices are
fully on a level with the cotton market.
Export trade Is limited ' by the higher
prices. Foreign shipments of domestics from
New York this year to date are 312.8S3
bales, against 144,876 a year ago. . Dress
goods are moving better for Immediate use,
and woolens in mens' wear have been pur
chased liberally. Advances In foreign and
domestic lines of woolens and worsteds are
being announced. Hosiery and underwear
are higher and more active.
The footwear market Is steadily Improv
ing, hut the price question continues to re
tard business and some branches of the
trade continue quiet. Staple lines of heavy
goods for men's wear receive the chief
amount of attention at present, but there Is
a better demand this week for men's me
dium and fine grades. Pronounced strength
continues to rule In all kinds of hides and
further advances are being secured In both
foreign and domestic stock. The leather
trade continues slowly to improve, out
there Is no great activity as yet, although
prices have stiffened about 1 cent per
pound on harness leather and most varie
ties of sole.
nRADSTREET'S REVIEW OF TRADE
Improvement Noticed In Many Trades
and Outlook Is Enoonraglns;.
NEW YORK, Oct. 15. Bradstreet's to
morrow will say:
Improvement Is the order of the day In
trade, collections and Industry. Colder
weather, frteslng temperatures. light
snows or killing frosts, coupled with freer
crop movement, have helped retail trade
and collections nt the west and northwest.
Jobbing trade has heen colncldently bene
fitted by j-eorderlng to fill broken stocks
sod the distributive trade side accordingly
presents a very favorable appearance.
Trade at first hands feels the stimulus In
more confident buying for spring, though
the unsettlement In the goods trade, due
to high cost of material and tail: of cur
tailment, still retauls trade In this. line.
However, the tendency of cotton goods is
undeniably upward and buying appears
slightly more confident at the higher prices
anked. From Indistrlal lines the samo
stcry of full order books and of longer
hours now comes, nay rolls are expanding
and available skilled labor is reported
closely cmplryed. with less Idleness noted
thun for two years past. The. Iron and
steel, coke, n achlnery and automobile In
dustries this week return especially, good
reports as to activity and there is noted
a xreater scarcity of skilled labor. The
coal trade shows more activity, though
prices are still compltir.ed of as too low
and there Is a greater scarcity of cars
noted In this and in the lumber trade. The
commodity prices situation shows signs of
Increased strength. . .
