Bradstreet's report shows tnat the holi
days and mild weather hare had an adverse
effect on trade. Nevertheless the volume of
business has been unusually large. The out

UEW YORK, January 4. The special tel
egraphic reports to Bradstreet's this week
ihow less activity in trade eenerally than in
the preceding weeks. The movement of
staple merchandise has been adversely af
fected by the New Year's holiday and the
mild weather. The volume of business has,
however, been exceptionally large for the
season, and the feeling is very hopeful in
oil lines of trade. Cotton receipts have
been very heavy in Louisiana, but lighter
an Texas. Later news tells of a heavy drop
in cotton receipts at interior towns.
The industrial situation is more promis
ing, and there have been fewer disturbances
between employers and employes than for
any preceding week for several years. Gro
ceries, drygoods and drugs are relatively
the most active, while lumber, leather and
hardware are not in specially active request.
Collections generally have not improved.
Funds, while not actually easier at several
sf the larger money centers, are rapidly be
coming so since the heavy disbursement for
interest, dividends and other settlements on
January 1. Stock speculation at New York
has been dull and depressed on doubts of the
ability or willingness of Western railroad
officials to maintain rates. A slight diffi
culty between the Rock Island and other
companies regarding passenger rates in
creased this disposition. Stockholders ap
pear to be moving to exercise more decided
control over railroad corporations. Bonds
are dull and strong under a good invest
ment demand. Money at New York has
been firm under the January disbursements
but is now easier. Call loans 4J5 per
cent. During the week 6 per cent was
quoted. Foreign exchange is weaker on a
supply ot cotton Dills ana lower money a;
London. Demand sterling, $4 884 SS;
The bank clearings at 37 cities for 12
months of 18S8 aggregated about 519,191,
jOO.OOO, a decline of 4 per cent. The decline
is due solely to the heavy decrease in New
York City's aggregate of bank clearings, in
asmuch as the total for the cities referred to,
exclusive of New York, show a net increase
over 1887 of L8 per cent The total number
of mercantile failures reported to Brad
street's daring 1888 is 10,587, abont the same
number as were reported in 1880, but 9.7 per
cent more than were reported in 18S7. There
has, however, been a decrease of 10 per cent
in the aggregate of liabilities of failing
traders, while the decrease in assets has been
but 4 per cent, thus raising the ratio of as
sets to liabilities of the failures during 1888
to 52 per cent, as compared with 49) per
cent in 1687.
Domestic wheat markets are irregular,
and close ii lower for cash. Exports
have declined, aggregating from both coasts
this week but 1,086,369 bushels (wheat and
flour as wheat), against 1,229,141 bushels
last week. San Francisco exported B1L,000;
New York, 65,000; Philadelphia, 14,000,and
Baltimore and Montreal each 5,000 bushels
of wheat this week. Total exports of wheat
(and flour as wheat) both coasts, from July
1 to date, are 52,300,000 bushels, against
76,000,000 in the like portion of 1887-88.
Stocks of wheat out of farmers' hands, spe
cially reported to Bradstreet's, aggregated
52,740,000 January 1, 1889, a decline of 24
per cent compared with January 1, 1887,
when stocks were the heaviest on record.
Stocks of wheat have increased but 1,340,
00 (at nearly 1,000 points of accumulation)
since December 1, 1888, notwithstanding
official visible supply reports, which show
an increase of 2.219,000 bushels of wheat to
visible stocks at 20 points since December 1
last. Stocks of flour in firpt and second
hands are the largest reported, having in
creased 191,000 barrels since December 1,
1888, notably at Omaha, Cincinnati, New
York City and Boston. There are 65,700
barrels more in stock than one year ago, and
77,440 barrels more than on January 1, 1887,
when the stock aggregated 2,024,695.
Drygoods agents and jobbers are arrang
ing for spring trade. New business is of
strictly moderate proportions. The higher
prices demanded for woolen goods make
buyers slow. Cotton goods are firm, with
fair orders from agents for prints and ging
hams. The advance in raw silk last year in
'duces confidence in higher prices for foreign
goods. The outlook is promising. Baw
wools are strong in price and moderate in
demand. The world's visible supply, not
including wool in bond in the United States,
is estimated at 80,189,157 pounds, against
124,995,096 pounds a year ago. Manufact
urers stocks are larger than a year ago.
Raw cotton is speculatively higher at
New York, 21 to 22 points and spots 1-16
cent, owing to lighter crop movement and
better trade at Liverpool. Baw sugars have
declined again cent on lower cables and
oa'erially weakened demand, in part due
to holiday observances. Kenned sugars,
though 4 to cent lower at all markets,
continued to rule quiet Speculation in
coffee at New York has been more confident
both here and abroad, in good part to pro
tect outstanding speculative contract and
the market has been excited, with a gain on
the week of 80 to 90 points. Dealings
abroad have been relatively lighter, but
prices have been firmer.
It is stated that a 10-year or 12-year con
tract for the copper output at 14c per pound
has been virtually concluded between the
foreign syndicate and American producers.
The dividends of eight leading companies
for 1888 are given at $3,940,000, as compared
with $1,460,000 the year before. No change

Kkw Tobk, January 4. R. G. Dnn A Co.'
weekly review of trade says a hopeful feeling
everywhere prevails. In spite of retarding in
fluences, reports of the condition of business
are generally favorable. The growth of manu
facturing at many Western points is a notable
feature, especially in the gas regions, and at
points in Northern Illinois and Iowa. Mer
chants generally reckon up a large increase in
amount of business last year. The tardiness
of collections, doe in different sections to short
or late crops, to yellow lever, to mild weather,
or to retarded distribution or marketing, is a
matter of general complaint.
At many cities the record of building shows a
snrppjing increase, especiaUy at the West.
The money markets, thongh usually well sup
plied, have a better demand at Philadelphia,
Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, Omaha and
Sioux City. The volume of currency, practi
callr unchanged during December, is now
recorded, that of November. A vear aco it was

But the merchandise exports for the past
month from New York have exceeded those of
the previous year L6 per cent, against an in
crease of 2.5 per cent in imports, which would
indicate an excess of $20,000,000 in exports over
imports for the month. The course of the stock
market thus far has disappointed those who
looked for rapid advance, lleports of rate cut
ting have a bad influence.

The annual statement of failures, showing
that 10,679 firms, or a trifle more than 1 in 10A
went into bankruptcy in 18SS. is on the whole
especially encouraginc, because the average of
liabilities was only $11,595 for the year and
110,738 for tho last quarter. This indicates that
a remarkably largo proportion of the failures
reported was of concerns doing a small busi
ness. Itmavbe noticed that throughout the
Western and Southern States, Texas included,
the failures were both more numerous and
larger in aggregate of liabilities than in tho
year preceding, while In Eastern, Middle and
Pacflc States an important decrease, in amount
of liabilities appears, and also in Texas.
The business failures for the week were 387.

EVERY NIGHT I SCRATCHED
UNTIL THE SKIN WAS RAW. BODY COV
ERED WITH SCALES LIKE SPOTS OF
MORTAR. CURED BY THE CUTICURA
I am going to tell you of the extraordinary
change your CtrxicURA Remedies performed
on me. About the 1st or April last I noticed
some red pimples like coming out all over my
body, but thought nothing of it until some
time later on, when it began to look like spoU
of mortar spotted on, and which came off in
layers, accompanied with itching. I would
scratch every night until I was raw, then the
next night the scales, being formed meanwhile,
were scratched off again. In vain did I consult
all the doctors In the country, but without aid.
After giving up all hopes of recovery, I hap
pened to see an advertisement in the news
paper about your Cuticuka Remedies, and
purchased them from my druggist and ob
tained almost immediate relief. I began to
notice that tho scaly eruptions gradually
dropped off and disappeared obo by one, and
have been fully cured. I had tho disease thir
teen months before I began taking the Cuti
cuka Remedies, and in four or five weeks
was entirely cured. My disease was eczema and
psoriasis. I recommended the Cuticura
Remedies to all in my vicinity, and I know of
a great many who have taken-them, and thank
me for tho knowledge of them, especially
mothers who have babes with scaly eruptions
on their heads and bodies. I cannot express in

A BIG LOSS TO US !

Hardly Credible, But as
On Every Article or Garment Sold at
Inventory or Stock-Taking Sale.
Before going any further we wish to impress upon you right here not
to confound this Bona-Fide Sacrifice Sale with the various catch-penny
schemes now in operation at different stores in this city. You don't
have to rely on your good luck when you come to us, but you are bound
to save money on every purchase. We don't please one customer at the
expense of disappointing ninety-nine WE PLEASE THEM ALL
With us EVERY PATRON DRAWS A BIG PRIZE-not a favored
few. No partiality, no preconcerted arrangements, no dark schemes, but
an open, fair treatment and a big benefit awaits all who may take ad
Vantage of our stock-taking sale. In other words, if you prefer an agree
able surprise to bitter disappointment, a good investment to a bad one,
if you prefer profit to loss, truth to a myth, then come to KAUFMANNS'
this week and get
ONE -THIRD OFF!
On anything and everything you may buy, from a Shirt or Hat to an
Overcoat or Cloak.
This reduction, incredible as it may seem, we have made, truly and
honestly, on the price of every article in our store. Nothing was re
served. Even the finest and most fashionable garments had their prices
cut down THIRTY-THREE AND ONE-THIRD PER CENT. Just
look at the reduced figures on the price tickets of the garments, and you
will be convinced of the genuineness of this sale. In Our
