New Tobk, September 6. Special tele
grams to Uradstrect't indicate u more active
movement of general merchandise through
out the country, with a favorable prospect
for fall trade in almost all lines. Some'im
provement is noted even in raw wool. Tel
low pine is higher at Western cities, and
Kentucky whiskies are advancing, but cat
tle and hogs have been heavy and lower and
the New England fisheries catch is unfavor
Total bank clearings for August at 37
cities, as wired to Braditrcct't, amounted to
54,273,079,511, an increase of 11.3 per cent
over corresponding total of 1888. For eight
months the total is $35,971,603,516, against
531,064,979,293 in 1888, $33,485,903,442 in
1887 and $30,906,647,141 in 1886. Our cor
respondents report that the If ew York State
hop yield will equal that of last year, with
quality fair. The Pacific coast yield
promises to be large and of fine quality.

GENERAL XBASE ACTIVE.
General trade at Kew York is fairly ac

hardware, green fruits, boots and shoes,
crude rubber, seedleaf tobacco and leather

strong and tend upward, particularly in
acids, country produce, some makes of
bleached drygoods, crude rubber and leather.
The boot and shoe industry generally is ac

Salesmen are already out with spring sam
ples. Stock speculation tends to widen, and
prices, while fluctuating, work steadily
higher on the crops and the heavy traffic
and earnings of railroads. The money mar
ket has for the present ceased to aot as a dis
turbing element. Call loans at Hew York
are S4 per cent. Bonds are steady, and

Stocks ot wheat at over 900 storage points
agcregated 20,860,000 bushels on August 30,
an increase of 4,788,000 bushels since July
27, almost exactly the same increase as was
shown by Jiradstreet's reports of wheat
stocks during the like five weeks in 1SS8.
Stocks of wheat August 31 were 13,200.000
bnshels smaller than one year ago, but
those of corn and oats were each 3,500,000
bushels larger. Stocks of wheat flour in
jobbers" and millers' hands were 100,000
barrels larger than on July 27, 1889, and
188,000 barrels larger than September 1,
1888. "Wheat has been weaker and llc
offon freer deliveries "West and Northwest,
although for five weeks ended August 31,
set average weekly additions to stocks out
of farmers hands at 900 points were 958,000
bushels against 972,000 bushels in alike
portion of 1888.
"Wheat flour is duller and off 515c Corn
has reacted from the effects of iree move

date is 19,720,560 bnshels and for like por
tion of 18S8 it was 21,807,587 bushels.
Boston and New York jobbers report an
evenly distributed demand fordrygoodi.and
agents a satisfactory demand lor leading
cottons, with prices generally well held,
bleached goods (high and low grades) espe
cially so. Print cloths are weak, on in
creasing stocks. "Woolen goods are pretty
well under control; dress goods are specially
active. Importers report an improved de
mand for foreign goods. The auction sale of
blankets and flannels at New York this
week was fairly satisfactory, prices averag
ing 710 per cent below regular quotations.
Haw wool has been rather more active at
former quotations. Haw cotton is c lower
at New York on increased crop movement
and lower quotations at primarv markets,
but 3-16d higher at Liverpool, owing to
. light supplies and reported corner.
IEON XST STEEL.
Very large iron and steel orders have
been booked by "Western makers this week
at outside prices. Freights have been ad
vanced and this is reflected in higher quo
tations to small buyers. Large orders have
been booked for merchant bar, merchant
steel, structural iron, plate and tank, and
sheet and galvanized. There is also great
activity in "Western markets in heavy hard
ware and in wire and cut nails. All kinds
of bnilding material are moving very freely.
All through the Ohio valley there is gen
eral activity and in the late markets crude
and finished iron have been marked up.
Lake Superior charcoal iron is very firm,
because of the active demand throughout
the entire Northwest. Ohio irons in "West
ern markets have also sold at higher quota
tions than for several months. Copper is
unchanged and production is heavy.
Cabled depression from Europe, and more
encouraging crop advices from prominent
producing countries resulted in a further
yielding of prices ot raw" sugars here re
gained on Friday's advance. Transactions
in refined have been relatively far more lib
eral and prices are steady. Coffee has been
dull, speculatively, and prices were made on
contradictory reports as to the flowering of
the Brazilian crop, at first unfavorable and
later favorable, September advancing 5
points. In distributive circles the move
ment was more active and Eio closes c
Business failures reported to Sradstreet's
number 143 in the United States this week
against 176 last week, and 157 this week last
year. Canada had 27 this week against 21
last week. The total ot failures in the
United States January 1 to date is 7,746
against 6,878 in 1888.
DUN'S "WEEKLY KEYIEW.
B. 6. Dun & Co.' weekly review of trade
says: Heal improvemeut is seen in almost
every department of business. "With each
week it becomes more certain, that the crops
of the year will be large, and of late the
news from abroad has clearly indicated a
larger foreign-demand, while such specula
tion as might arrest the outward movement
of grain and provisions has thus far been
prevented. In cotton on the other hand,the
present scarcity in the city rnles the price
in spite of bright prospects as to the coming
The effect of heavy bond purchases by the
Treasury has been great in the stock market,
and is now felt in much better demand for
commercial paper, while the prevailing
opinion in the street is that all dang'.r of
monetary stringency is over for thp year.
The reports from other cities are un'isually
Eatislactory, indicating at every poiat either
improvement or continuance of previous
activity where the expansion cf trade had
At Chicago August live stock receipts
were larger man mr any otber montn, and
jrrain receipts increase, tboneh receipts of
jffOTitionjYall oS. Sales and collections arej
op to the average, and the supply of money is
ample for the demand, thongh there is a
1 slight tendency to hold off for better rates.
At Omaha and St Paul heavy business
continuei. and at Kansas City there is an
increase, with money at all these points in
fair supply and collections fair. The de
mand is brisk at Milwaukee, but the supply
ample; at Detroit collections are better and
business increasing with the close of the
long drought. At Cleveland there is great
activity, especially in ore and pig iron, and
the demand for ore seems to have actually
exhausted the supply for the season.
At Pittsburg and Philadelphia improve
ment continnes in the iron business, and
glass is fairly active, as are liquors, drugs
and chemicals at Philadelphia, and build
ing permits for the year thus far have'been
7,451, against 6,913 to date last year. Bnt
trade in wool and coal is dull. At Boston,
however, wool is selling more freely, 2,672,
000 pounds for the week, largely of lion
tana and Ohio fleece, at some concessions
in prices, but more confidence is felt
Leather is in active demand, and boots and
shoes are steady, with the factories well
supplied with orders until October.
The improvement in iron and steel is
general at Philadelphia and Pittsburg, but
large buyers hesitate here, and No. 1 pig is
still quoted at $17 to $18, with rails at $28
to $28 50. The

is heavy, and prices have advanced.
Though the production is enormous, it is
realized that cost ot making iron is advanc
ing almost everywhere, and meanwhile the
remarkable rise in prices abroad shuts off all
foreign competition to an unusual extent
The coal trade does not improve, however,
and the vote to restrict September produc
tion has failed as yet to bring the desired
increase of orders. Copper is weaker
abroad and apathetic here, though offered
for future delivery below present syndicate
prices. Tin has been weaker at 20)4 cents
for spot, and lead stronger at 4 cents.
The attempt to hoist wheat on extrava
gant estimates of the European deficiency
and demand has not been a success, and the
price has declined 19f cents for the week.
with sales of only 7,000,000 bushels. That
Europe will want more wheat than it did
last year is obvions, bnt this country has a
great deal more to sell. Corn also fell a
cent with sales of 7,000.000 bushels, and the
continued' exports, reaching 5,000,000 bush
els for four weeks of August have an im
portant bearing on the probable price of
wheat Oats were also a shade lower, and
oil declined 1 cent with small transac
tions. Sugar has gone still lower, but at the de
cline some increased demand appears. Pork
has been steady, and hogs higher, while the
speculators in coffee have raised the price to
19 cents. During the past week there has
been great activity and a general advance
in stocks, under the exceptional stimulus
afforded by treasury disbursements.
NOT SO MUCH SURPLUS.
The Treasury cash holdings have been
reduced over $15,000,000 since a week ago,
partly in payment for bonds of which con
siderable offers are still made daily, and
partly in the disbursements incident to the
beginning of the month. The efiect upon
stocks has been an advance of $2 15 per
share ir the prices of a dozen active securi
ties and a moderate advance in the rest of
the list, with the failure of one operator on
the wrong side of the speculation. Both in
imports and exports the increase over last
year continues enormous, and the rate of
foreign exchange has advanced to 4.88; the
bank of England its minimum at 4 per
cent The general level of prices of com
modities is a shade lower than September 1,
