Volume of Business Continues Heavy,
but Conditions Are Irregular.
Certain I'nfavorable Report Appar
ently Have lleen KxuBeratei
Iron Good Firmer, a
Shown by Advance.
' NEW YORK, April 30.-R. Q. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade today saye:
Conditions of business are ntlll Irregular,
but the volume of trado continues heavy.
Certain unfavorable reports have appar
ently been exutsKerated and thi-lr effect on
business Is out of real Importance to their
real significance. Much this year depends
upon crops. No action has been taken to
. usci rtain the production of pig Iron, but
veveral more furnaces have blown out
their slacks and others ure expected to
ilo likewise. A proposition has been ad
vanced among merchant furnaces in some
of the largest Pennsylvania districts to
hut down for thirty days between now
and July 1. Insofar as demand for pig Iron
is concerned ciuiiitlions are. If anything,
more quiet than in the preceding weeks, but
prices now show some resilience tu
the declining tendency exhibited in steel
making lion. Producers on coke are cur
tailing more freely in response to the blow-
' lug out of furnaces and it is einiated that
the weekly output Is lUU.'AW tons less man
at the end of March. In finishing liuee
the situation is somewhat mixed and no
great amount of business is being done.
Important contracts for structural material
are pending. Rail requirements for the
railroads apparently have beei. natnly
filled and two export orders call for ZS.Mjo
tons. The primary goods in the maiket are
Headier, but still rule very gulet.
Lry goods are a shade firmer, as
hown by an advance of a quarter of a
cent on drills and sheetings and curtail
ment Is steadily increasing. It Is seasonably
quiet In the Jobbing trade, but retailers
buy steadily and carefully without dsire
to anticipate In the immediate require
ments. Duplicate orders for fall men's
winter wooiens are coming In, but the trade
in worsteds rules quiet More favorable
prices in the worsted yarn markets prom-it-e
wider buying In the near future. Dress
goods trade continues light.
A good volume of new orders lor the
liext fall run have been received by shoe
manufacturers tn all sections of the coun
try, bhoe shipments from Boston for the
week are slightly larger. Sole leather is
stronger and the laigest tanner announces
n advance of I In l cents per pound. ole
leather tanners are well sold up and booked
ahead on some grades. Some kinds of
upper leather are selling well, but other
descriptions continue neglected, bales of
western packer hides during the last ten
Cays aggregated about l.'o,(KK hides and
this lias served to steady ttie mat ket.
Uradslrert'a Htilew of Trade.
NEW YORK. April 90. Hradstreet's today
Cold weather with snow west and south
have checked retail trade and dtillett ro
dder business In tprlug goous, while the
reports of crop damage resulting from the
return of winter weather have resulted In
dulling' fall trade, pending the ultimate
crop outcome. Taken as a whole, the re
ports from Jobbing and wholesale trade
lines and Industries point to a slowing
down rather than a quickening of demand,
and the downward tendency of ma,ny com
modities does not seem to have brought
out much new business, tho feeling being
apparently that buying only to fill actual
needs Is now the part o conservation,
pending clearer views of crop and price
over the country. The textile trades fail
to reflect much expansion of demand. The
cotton situation still Is unsettled and ex
tension of curtailment Is being advocated,
while the wool market Is easier both for
old and new supplies. In the lion steel
trades pig Iron production Is In excess of
demand and some furnaces are blowing
out. The Inclement weather temporarily
checked building operations, but activity in
that line is still manifest. The leather und
shoe trades are nulet, but eastern shoe
shipments are equal to a year ugo.
Prices of commodities have tended down
ward, which is a possible reflection of faith
in future supplies and of crop damage be
ing exaggerated. Food products are gen
erally lower at wholesale.

a quarter of a century. On behalf of the
employes he wished Mr. and Mrs. liuttln
a quiet, peaceful and happy life during
their remaining days. In token of their
affection and esteen theyl presented hint
with, an eh gunt rocking chair, and In ac
cepting same he expressed his great ap
preciation of their tamest co-operation
with him In the upbuilding of the Omaha
Otia company. Mr. und Mrs. Battln leave
for Philadelphia Saturday evening on the
Denioeru tic Delusion.
KEARNEY, Neb., April 29. To the Editor
of The Bee: At present when real or Imag
inary dissatisfaction ..with the administra
tion and republican , leaders in congress
exists or is supposed, to exist, It Is some
what amusing to observe the .democratic
press cagerly holding out landing nets to
capture the dissatisfied ones. '.'Come into
our fold,", they cry, "all ye . disgruntled
republicans! Wo . are still , the same old
party of reform, and stand for those prin
ciples that, you advocate."
. This la amusing because so utterly bare
faced. History as. recent as the last con-1 .When Aldrlch needed
votes to carry his tariff measure, which Is
the measure that Is supposed to be the chief
cause of dissatisfaction In republican ranks,
ho found no difficulty In securing enough
democratic support to carry It., And to.
think of Roger Sullivan, Tom Taggart of
French Lick Springs fame, or Tammany
Murphy at the head of a reform party. Is
to smile. Of a certainty It is to smile. .
The somewhat vacillating' Peerless One,
who has sporadically stood for various re
forms, la discredited by- his own party.
And passing Lack . only a few years to
the time when the . democrats were safely
entrenched In the administrative and legis
lative branches of our government we see
a spectacle of such eager reformers, that
oven the most faithful democratic news
paper passes by that period in the utmost
silence. . .
There Is," however, no doubt In my mind
that the party label of any party Is less
venerated today than In any previous time
of our history. Appeals to tho voters In
the name of this grand old party that
Lincoln founded or the glorious party of
Thomas Jefferson has no longer power
to stir the heart throbs of the average
voter, and that this is so Is a healthy in
dication of a more Intelligent grasp of
public questions. It Is this growing Intel
ligence that must be reckoned with by
those who aspire to public eminence In
the future. The most Intelligent voter Is,
after all, the independent voter, who weighs
all questions of public policy and casts hi
vote In accordance with his Judgment. This
class has grown sufflcieiytly large In the
last ten years to act as a safety valve on
any party In power. May his tribe In
crease! N. II. JOHNSON.
Let la Have l ight.
OMAHA, April 29. To the Kditor of The
Uee: Tn eioctrto lifbt la trout of my
house has "been out about a dosen times
within the last six months. . , I call up the
police station every time the light goes
out, but It does not make any differ
ence. There 1b no gas lamp or other lignt
to take Its place, so we have to remain
In the dark. A large number of lights
have been ' out at different-times In the
south side of the city. Now what would
happen It all the electric lights went out?
Omaha woujjl be in the dark. If a great
flood should put out the fires In the power
houses of the- Electric Light company and
.the Street Railway company of Omaha we
.would have to. walk home In the dark and
a great deal of business would stand still,
i vTwenty-flve years agq there was a great
explosion and a flro in the old gas plant,
and Omaha. was In the dark for several
nights.- The city council passed a resolu
tion declaring tho necessity of having! two
gas plants, so that one might take the
place of the other In case of accident, and
the gas company, promptly responded by
locating plant No. 2 on South Twentieth.
Jt might be a good Idea to have a provi
sion for duplicate power plants In any
franchises that may. be voted hereafter,
so that, Omaha would never be In danger
of having to walk home In tho dark.
Joseph Belt Foond Dead in Aetna
Hotel with Head Burled In
Blood-Covered Pillow.
John Bolt, a structural Iron worker, was
found kneeling, with his head burled In a
blood covered pillow, dead, In a room at
the Aetna hotel. Thirteenth and Douglas
streets, yesterday afternoon. There was no
wound perceptible on the man's body or
evidence In the .room to Indicate how he
had come to his death. Apparently he had
suffered a hemorrhage.
Joseph White, day clerk In the rooming
house, discovered Belt's body, when the
clerk led a patron to the room', thinking It
was unoccupied and Intending to rant It.
A chair was propped securely against the
doorknob in such a way as to hold It
secure against entrance from the outside.
White and his patron looked through the
transom and upon seeing the prostrate
form, fi reed the door in. Belt had been
dead several hours.
Other roomers at the house said they
had known Belt for over a year, during
which time he lodged , off and on at the
Aetna. He was Si years told and unmar
ried. He seemed always to be cheerful and
without worry. The man's relatives are
said to live In a town In Missouri.
Belt was robbed of ' his clothing by a
roommate about a week ago. He reported
the Incident to the police, but said the
stolen belongings were not of much value
and the loss did not disturb him.
Coroner Crosby has charge of the body
and will hold an Inquest Saturday afternoon.
