According to Bradstreet't, business is bet
ter at Pittsburg, Baltimore and Kansas
City, because of fine weather. K. G. Dun
& Co., however, say that iron and steel
products have exerted a depressing influ
ence in this section. Sugar continues to
rise on unfavorable crop reports. The num
ber of failures is still numerous.
tSrCCIAI. TIXEQBAX TO THE xUSPATCH.l
New Yoke, April 19. Special tele
grams to Bradstreet't report moderate gains
in the distribution of staple goods at Balti
more, Kansas City and Pittsburg. At the
first named city trade equals the volume a
year ago, and at Pittsburg fine weather has
been the stimulus. At Kansas City there
is an active demand for goods and for funds
for use in Oklahoma. There is a good aver
age business doing at Chicago, St. Louis
and New Orleans.
The outlook for wheat, cotton and corn is
bright. Mercantile collections have im
proved at Pittsburg, Detroit, Chicago, Bur
lington, St. Joseph and Sew Orleans! San
Francisco has shipped 157,000 bushels of
wheat to Australia this year, and tonnage
for 350,000 bushels more has been engaged.
Good Friday observances have curtailed
the volume ot business somewhat this weet,
and at New York the centennial inaugural
celebration will further check the volume
of wholesale trade. Country produce and
building materials are more active at New
York, with prices tending upward.
BUTDIXG STILL ACTIVE.
Building is active and the demand for
materials is 3050 per cent in excess of last
year. Trade in furniture, machinery, naval
stores, fruits, leather, rubber, paper, paper
f stock and cane is quiet Liquors, paints,
j jewelry and boots and shoes are fairly active.
f Prices of furniture, naval stores and crude
rubber tend downward.
I Stock speculation at New York has been
' dull and mostly of a professional character
with a downward tendency owing in part to
the coming Centennial celebration. Bonds
have advanced slightly. Money at New
York remains easy. Call loans are 33J
per cent and demand sterling is firm at

companies for February aggregate 510,066,
359 against 59,5S9,379 fast year, an increase
of 4.9 per cent. For two months ending
February 28, 86 companies report net earn
ings of $20,391,801 against 17,313,660 in
36S8, an increase of 17.9 per cent
Sugar advices from primary sources are
stronger, and prices of raw are J7-16c
higher, holders of raw declining contracts
at current rates. Crop estimates are ies3
encouraging. Arrivals are 14,300 tons
heavier this week. Stocks at the four dis
tributing ports of the United States are 52,
1)00 tons, against 144,300 tons a year ago.
SUGAK OX THE RISE.
' There was a heavy demand for refined

. stiff advance, amounting to c on the week.
I The price of sugar is declared to be not yet
abnormally high, "the last few years of de
pression" having accustomed consumers to
a less range of prices. Bar sugars are still
below the average price of 40 years. Granu
t lated is 8c at San Francisco and 8c at
New York. Coffee prices in speculative
lines have been fairly supported, althongh
, holiday observances in Europe and at home
have checked trade. Bio is unchanged on
the week. Jobbers are awaiting the revival
of demand from their customers.
The breadstuffs market is weaker and
lower. The trading in wheat is of smaller
volume, and prices are off three-eighths of a
cent, on increased stocks afloat and uuusu

is weak in sympathy and prices are shaded.
Indian corn forms an exception, with an
advance of 1J cents on reduced offerings
and better foreign demand. Oats are "
to 1 cent lower with the "West Ba
Hog products have hardened, and lard is
dearer. The exports of wheat (and flour as
wheat) from both coasts this week equal
1,419,000 bushels of wheat, against 1,226,000
bushels last week and 2,146,000 bushels in
the like week of 1888.
PIG IRON PRODUCTION.
The production of pig iron is very heavy,
and the fact that stocks are not accumula
ting or prices not declining openly are re
garded by many as encouraging features.
The demand for hardware, iron pipe, sheet
iron and nails is said to be improving.
Production and shipments of rails this year
exceed those of 1688 to a like date. Lake
Superior copper is sold here at 14 cents,
but is likely to go to the neighborhood of
12 cents during the summer. Consumption
here and abroad is small. The visible sup

The price of petroleum has been ham
mered down about 6c per barrel this week
by speculative dealers, mainlr on a sensa
tional account of the Standard's operations
in the Ohio field. Drygoods are in only

New York and Boston. Jobbers are doing
the usual quiet between-seasons trade. Dec

IE0N AMSTEEL. '
According to K.G. Dnn fc Co. These Products
Exert a Depressing Influence In

action Failures Numerous.
New Yoek, April 19. B. G. Dun & Co. 's
weekly review of trade says: Most of the
indications usually considered of value
point to a genuine improvement in business,
and rather in volume of transactions than
in profits. Crop prospects brighten steadily.
Lower prices result in largely increased ex

pouring out freely and there are no signs of.

Bailroad earnings are increasing and so

Bome important branches of trade are nu
merous. Collections are generally slower,
than usual; the iron and leather interests'
are embarrassed by production largely ex
ceeding the present demand.
IRON AND STEEL PRODUCTS.
At Kansas City wet leather has aftected
trade and collections, and at Pittsburg the
Blow movement and weakness in prices of
iron and steel products, glass and coal affect
business generally, but at Cleveland more
inquiry tor iron ore is reported and a better
feeling is manifest
The wool market is waiting, the old supply
is nearly exhausted and new wool being no't
as yet available in any quantity, prices are
mostly nominal, but average for 104 grades
and qualities nearly halt cent lower. The
classification of worsted goods as woolens bv
the appraiser at Philadelphia has been iri-
dorsed by the Board of Appraisers, but has
no effect on the markets as yet
The direct influence of depression in the
iron and steel business is large, but it has a
still greater moral influence because of the
current impression that the price or con
sumption of pig Iron affords a reliable
barometer of the general condition of busi
ness. It is evident that this impression
must be modified in some measure in times
like these, when the consumption for rails
has declined enormously.
HARD TO STIMULATE.
A Chicago publication of milage of all
roads projected fails to stimulate iron man
ufacturers, who are well aware how many'
concerns are in the market to purchase rails
with bonds not otherwise marketable. But
when the quantity of iron made in rails is
deducted, the remaining consumption, for
all purposes, this year, exceeds that of last
year by not far from 400,000 tons per quar
ter, which is. surely not a discouraging
symptom. Prices are low, however.
The overproduction of leather does not ap
pear to be caused by any sudden shrinkage
in thedemand for finished products, since
the shipments oi boots and shoes are larger
than in any previous year. But the depres
sion in price, which has now continued since
1880, and reached 33 per cent, is unprece
dented as to duration, and the excess of pro
duction undoubtedly begins to embarrass
IX DRYGOODS LINES. .
The cotton manufacturer is pressing facil
ity, with a consumption a little larger than
in any previous year, with print cloths
strong at 3.75 cents ior 64s. Copper has
fallen 3 10s at London during the last week,
and the projects for future control of the
market do not yet materialize. Zinc also
declined to 20.87 cents, but lead is strong at
Wheat is but a shade lower, and corn a
little higher than a week ago. The rapid
approach of another harvest, with an unsold
surplus in excess of all probable demands,
which seems likely to be not far from 40,
000.000 bushels July 1, is a sufficient cause
of depression in wheat The general aver
age of prices is a shade lower than a week
ago. Exports of American merchandise im
prove, and for the two weeks of April have
been 20U per cent larger than last year.
The business failures number 246, as
against 239 last week, and 222 the week pre
vious. For the corresponding week of last
year the figures were 195.
A BOOM Iff MILITIA MATTERS.
Requisitions for Ordnance and Equipments
Washington-, April 19. The "War De
partment is in receipt daily of requisitions
for ordnance and Quartermaster's stores for
the equipment of the militia of the country
under the annual appropriation of $400,000,
not only from old organizations, but from
those which have recently come into exist
ence. In the Territories particularly are
there siting of activity among the militia
forces. The old organizations are gradu
ally changing their equipment to conform
to that of the regular army.
It is said that there will be fully 50,000
militiamen in New York on the occasion of
the centennial celebration. This fact is
thought to be significant of the wonderfnl
efficiency of the present organization, mak
ing it possible to concentrate an army of
well drilled and well equipped soldiers
within a day at almost any of the important
cities of the Atlantic coast "With 48 hours
for preparation an army of nearly 75,000
soldiers could be gathered.

A STRANGE RECOVERY.
A Man Carried. From a Death Bed
to Dr. Smith, the Magnetic
No. 602 Penn Avenue.
It is seldom necessary to comment upon facts
or upon that which is truly wonderful, yet one
cannot refrain from expressing profound ad
miration for the skill which is raising so many
sufferers from beds of pain and distress and
restores them to health and vigor. It scarcely
seems credible that .such marvelous results
can be obtained by the laying on of hands, and
we should have been loth to believe these
wonderfnl reports of Dr. Smith's re
markable cures only for tho fact that
we have been an eye witness, and see
ing, you know, Is believing. 'What we see
with our own eyes we are bound to believe.
The following cases treated by the Drs, Smith
at tho Grand Opera House and in their parlors,
at No. 502 Penn avenne, speak for themselves.
Mr. John Foley, who resides at Millyale, was
taken with a terrible pain In his right shoulder
upward of five months ago. The attack came
on suddenly, like a shock, of paralysis. The
arm oecame useless in a few moments' time.
He could not uso the hand or move a finger.
A short 'time after the attack he began to ex
perience pain in the shoulder. The pain in
creased in severity for a number ot
days, when it was discovered that there
was au accumulation of pus in the
shoulder joint, Mr. Foley applied to a doctor,
who opened the shoulder with the knife.
Large quantities of pus was discharged at the
time and a fistula formed, which continued ,to
discbarge a thin, acrid pus. In this helpless
and hopeless condition he applied to the Drs.
Smith, the magnetic physicians, at 502 Penn
avenue, anu was cured perfectly. He has re
gained the use of his hand and arm, and is now
well and happy. John McDonald suffered ten
years from sciatica. Mr. McDonald is an old
fentleman, and was helpless for several years,
e was cured on the public stage by one mag
netio treatment. Scores of cases of loss of
voice have been cored on the public
stage by one treatment, as well as
cases of rheumatism, neuralgia, catarrh,
asthma, bronchitis, and, in fact, all kinds of
disease. All that the doctors do is to apply
their hands to tho affected parts for a few mo
ments, when the cure is completed. Drs. Smith
will continue to heal the sick free of charge at
the Grand Opera House every morning this
week from 10 to 11 o'clock.
Next Saturday morning will be their last ap
pearance in the Grand Opera House, and will
close their nubile healing of the sick. Hereaf
ter those who desire to consult Dr. Smith may
do so at his office. No. 502 Penn avenue. Con
sultation free from 9 A. M. until 7 p. K. daily.
All letters of inquiry must contain two stamps.

Mr. John Allen, Druggist:
Deae Sib: I was suffering from derange
ment of the kidneys to such an extent that
nearly all the nourishment taken into my sys
tem passed off through the kidneys. I became
restless at night and frequently suffered pain
in the back. In a few weeks I lost 25 pounds in
flesh. I commenced the use of Pratt's Aro
matic Geneva Gm, following the directions
closely, and in six weeks regained my former
health and weight. I can cheerfully recom
mend it. Yours respectfully,
