Sua & Cl's Kciicw.
Reports to Bradstreet's show the trade is
generally dull. This, however, is natural
at this season, and an improvement is ex
pected. The railroad meeting quieted spec
ulation. "Wheat and grain are somewhat
lower. K. G. Dun & Co do not look for
any marked decrease in the price of sugar.
tSrECIXL TELEGRAM TO TUt DISPATCn.1
Xew Yoke, January 11. Although
special telegrams to Bradstreet's from lead
ing trade centers do not indicate any very
general improvement in business, dullness
is the natural accompaniment of annual
stock-takinc, and the reaction from the pe
culiar activity of the holiday season now is
merely a wholesome development. It is yet
too early for widespread or decided activity
to appear, hut at 'ew Orleans there has
been a marked increase in the movement of
Ftaple goods to the interior as well as of cot
ton to market.
At Burlington commercial travelers are
starting out, and at Boston some revival in
several lines is already apparent, notably in
drygnods. At Chicago general trade is ex
pected to increase with colder weather, after
the middle of the month. Business is only
fairly active at the Xorthwest, ana has been
checked at Kansas City and St Joseph by mild
v cather. Reports from the white pine districts
tributary to Chicago indicate a shortage in the
log crop of 18S9. Industrial conditions are less
satisfactory than last week, as strikes have
been quite numerous, embracing a large num
ber of employes. Wage disputes are becoming
Stock speculation was quiescent while the
great railroad settlement was in progress.
Prices are improving a little, but public opin
ion seems to depend upon a fuller development
of the effect and probable success of the com
pact. Bonds aro Ann and hither, thouch an-
ticipated defaults caused declines in a few
classes. Money at XcwYork is easier. Call
loans 3S4 per cent Foreign exchange is dull
aud lower on the easy money market at Lon
don and the lowering of tho 'Bank of England
rate. Demand sterling, $4 8SJil SS.
Bank clearings at 40 cities reporting to Brad
stricts this week, aggregate JLtiS9,2Ki,00u,
against SU04.107.S62 last week, and i9f2,(i2iWS
in the second week of January, IbisS This
shows a gain of 9.7 per cent oTer the record a
ear ago, but a decline of 1.3 per cent from last
week. The wheat and flour markets have
been duller, with reactions in price this week,
wheat declining 2Jc per barrel and flour 5gl0c
per barrel. The exports, both coats. have
equaled 144.3S3 barrels of flour and 1.033.139 bush
els of wheat the equivalent of 1.C32.3&5 bushels
of wheat last week and 1,857,309 bushels iu the
like week in 1ESS. There wero but 54,700 bush
els from four Atlantic ports this week, against
over 97,000 bushels last week.
Facinc coast shipments for the week ended
Januarj 10 aggregated SITS, 451 bushels, and in
the preceding week only 511,237 bushels, and
350,042 bushels in the becondweck of January,
ibSS, Stocks of ts heat at points of accumula
tion In Australia, as cabled Bradstreet's, ag
gregated 3,123,000 bushels on January 1. At
the interior, in farmers and dealers hands, there
are additional, but not large stocks of old
wheat The crop now being harvested in
Australia will probably not yield more than
4,000,000 bushels, sufficient only for colonial
consumption and seed.
DECLINE I3T SUGAR.
Raw sugars close at Jf ew York and San Fran
cisco HCgc lower on bearish foreign advices
(and heavy receipts on the Pacific coast) with
light demand, and only fairly free meltings in
this country. Brazilian advices aro for 0,000
tons shortage in exports against last year. Re
fined lias been VMz lower, closine steady.
At "Sew Orleans, however, sugar prices are
firmer. Somewhat heavy arrivals of Rio and
Santos served to offset the bullish tendency in
coffee prices, based on advices from most for
eign markets. The decline has been from
Cotton mill agents report a slightly improved
demand for goods at firm prices. Leading
lines of fancy prints range at last season's
prices. A tendency to curtail discounts in
ginghams is noticeable, and this feature tends
to delay operations. Print cloth is taken as
fast as offered, bnt prices are unchanged.
Woolen goods note an Increased inquiry. The
season's prices for casimcres are not yet fixed.
Higher prices for heavy weight goods tend to
render business slow. Raw wool is in moderate
demand and firm, with stock small The
feature in the iron trade is the cut of half cent
per pound, or til 20 per ton. In beams, with the
option of either iron or steel, to stimulate con
sumption. Steel rail mills have but little ti ork;
not a single heavy order this week. Lake Su
perior ore looks weak.
Business failures reported to BradttreeVs
number 337 In the United States this week,
against 2b6 last week and 312 this week last
j ear. Canada had 2S this week, against 22 last
week. The total of failures in the United
States January 1 to date is i$ ac amst C05 two
full weeks in 18S8.
BUSINESS NOT BRISK.
But the Feeling of Confidence in the Financial
Fulnre Is Unshaken.
New York, January 11. R. G. Dnn A Co.'s
weekly review of trade says: Not the least im
portant feature of the railroad presidents' ar
rangement is the fact that bankers of large in
fluence commit themselves, in case the compact
is signed, to refuse their countenance or aid to
the negotiation of securities for new competing
lines or extensions, where either of the railroads
agreeing to the compact objects. The report of
the Inter-State Commission shows that on 120 -000
miles of road, for the year ending June 30,
I8SS. the stock and bonds were of equal oar
value, but on 52K Per cent of the stock no dlvi-
dend was paid, at d on 20 per cent of the bonds
no interest while the proportion paving less
than 4 per cent was 63 per cent of the stock and
21 per cent of the bonds.
The decision of Judge Barrett, holding that
the Sugar Trust is illegal, is of very large im
portance. No change occurs as vet in prices of
fcugara, and it may not be premature to suppose
that other forms of agreement escaping the
legal objections found in this case, may not con
tinue to control markets. There are signs in
Europe that the Copper Trust is trving to cast
upon the public part of -its accumulating lead
through the organization of a copper bank.
Speculation in hogs and lard has tended to
ward lower finances.
Another fall in wheat has occurred, the price
closing lc lower for the week, exports being
still arrested. Corn fell lKc.and oats advanced
nearly 1c, with oil practically unchanged and
cotton a shade stronger.
The weekly output or anthracite and coke
Iron January 1 was 142,452 tons, against 106.027 a
month ago. and 121,307 a year ago. For the past
year the production is estimated at 6.500,000
gross tons. The enormous supply makes the
market duller than usual for the season. In
the railmarket no change is reported. The de
mand for bar iron is somewhat improved and
1.80 to 1.85 is quoted for tho best refined. The
coal trade is very dull, and the restriction of
output is now so f ar entorcca that tho record
for the last week of December was only 471.-S-J2
In the wool trade the demand is not large, bnt
prices are firmly held in the belief that stocks
are scarce. Cotton goods are in better demand
at steady or improving prices. Sales in specu
lative markets have been small during the past
week, and the general tendency of prices for
commodities as a whole is Etill downward.
Reports from interior towns show that fail
ures continue numerous and the complaints of
ordinary collections frequent But there is
hardly any complaint of monetary scarcity.
The Treasury holds about $5,100,000 less cash
than it did a week ago, and at present appre
hensions of gold exports are lessened by heavy
exports of merchandise. The money market
hero i6 easier and rates lower than a week ago,
and the feeling of confidence in the financial
and commercial future is still unshaken.
The failures during the last seven das num
ber 351, as against 3S7 last week and 229 the
week previous. For the corresponding week
of last year the figures were 279.
