rSPEClAL TELSGKAX TO THE DISFATCH.1
2ewXobk, December 13. Special tele
grams to Bradttreet't report very generally
a fair distribution of merchandise, but there
are complaints of great scarcity of cars on
the trunk lines with which to move corn.
The mild weather has been widespread,
checking the movement of winter clothing
and other seasonable staples. Very heavy
rains have checked trade on the Pacific
coast, as did the Davis obsequies at 2few
Orleans and elsewhere at the Soutb. But
'on the whole the volume of business remains
in excess of that one year ago.
In the stock market the 2 per cent West
' era TJnion dividend strengthened that stock,
but elsewhere the "Vanderbilts alone ap
peared to be able to resist the general de
pression which has prevailed, notwithstand
ing the revival on Friday and Saturday
last. The manipulation of money, which
has ranged from 15 to 3 per cent, has been a
factor in the attack, as were the unfavorable
bank statement, the depressed coal shares
and the mild weather. Money is easier,
but is not likely to become steady until
after the January settlements. Bonds are
in improving demand. Silver is in lather
better request from India and it is thought
that it will be from Brazil.
A DECIDED INCEEASE.
Hallway gross earnings reported by 137
companies for November show a total of
$36,801,061, or 12 per cent more than for the
like month in 188S. For 11 months of the
current vear the ageregate of gross earnings
is $350,760,634, or 9 per cent increase. The
iron and steel industries are firmer and
show more pronounced tendency to advance.
Pig is now quoted $1919 50 for Ho. 1, and
the outloot is mat me price win go into me
new year at $20. Bessemer pig and wire
rods are each higher and in demand.
Production of pig is abont 170,000 tons
each week, an increase of 30,000 tons weekly
within six months, yet consumption is cor
respondingly heavy, preventing stocks from
accumulating. Boiling mills are all work
f ine lull time. Steel rails are firm at $35 at
the mills. At the East there is an extra
ordinary demand lor lake ore for next
season. Bar iron will soon be advanced to
2 cents per pound.
Flour, wheat, corn and oats have all been
easy with larjie stocks or free offerings,
though spot wheat commands an advance of
iiie over the close a week ago. Eye is
2c higher on renewed request for export
Exports of wheat (and flour as wheat)
amount to 2,471,216 bushels this week, of
-which one-third, is from the Pacific coast,
against 2,327,342 bushels last week and
1,571,619 bushels iu the second week of De
EXPORTS OF WHEAT.
Total exports of wheat (and ficnr as
wheat) July 1 to date amount to 47.323,100
bushels, as compared with 43,571,619 bush
els in a like portion of 1888, and 70,255,000
bushels in 1887. The hog products and pro
visions markets still remain conspicuously
the weakest on the list Receipts of hogs
remain very heavy (5 per cent in excess of
previous week,) and dressed and live hogs
continue depressed, about 10 cents per 100
pound. Iiard options have declined frac
tionally. Pork is barely steady in price.
Butter and cheese are in only moderate re
quest, and eggs are lower on light demand.
Baw sugars are off'5-16c on the week
after the renewed activity just preceding, at
which dealers stocked up'freely with refined.
The starting up of the new anti-trust re
finery December 10 at Philadelphia and a
lighter demand are featnres. There is no
r-tion in prices of refined, although the
movement is lighter.
Speculative trading in coffee is brisk, and
prices tend upward on decreasing visible
stocks and reduced estimates of the Brazil
ian crop. Option prices advanced 65S0
points and in distributive lines c per
. The cotton goods situation shows more
confidence ou advances in bleached goods,
brown sheetings and drills. Print cloths
are in sharp contrast to the general market,
with a decline of 1-lGe. Mild weather af
fects the jobbing distribution of heavy
goods unfavorably. "Wool is in fair demand
at steady prices. Cotton is dull and with
out much change in the lace of conflicting
Business failures reported to Bradstreet't
number 370 iu the United States this week,
against 281 last week and 309 this week last
vear. Canada had 23 this week, against 35
last week. The total of failures in the
United States Jannarv 1 to date, is 11,023,
against 9.747 in 1888."
i . G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review says:
But for one thing the business reports re
ceived this week would be exceptionally
satisfactory. Unseasonable weather ac
counts for depression in one or more
branches of business. The trade in woolen
goods and iu heavy boots and shoes is also
retarded, and the anthracite coal trade even
more seriously. On the other hand, there is

?The boot and shoe trade is satisfactory.
'vPhiladelnhia carpet mills are also fall, but
P -at prices which leave narrow margins, and
wool ranuiacturers are working abort time.
The grocery trade there largely exceeds last
year's, at firm prices. At Chicago the grain
trade exceeds last year's, the trade in pro
visions has nearly, and in butter and cheese
quite donbled, while -there is some decline
in hides and a heavy decrease in wooL
In nearly all lines business is large at St.
Xiouis. Except in .North Central Arkansas
v- and Southeast Missouri, collections are un
usually easy. At Milwaukee, Omaha, St.
Paulandother "Western points, while weather
affects the" trade, prospects arc good, and ex
cept in localities abont Milwaukee, collec
tions are called fairly satisfactory.
The situation is healthy, as appear, in the
return of iron furnaces for December 1.
which shows a weekly output of 169,151
tons, against 165.225 November 1 and 148,-
s 913 a vear atro. With an output at the rate
of 8,750,000 tons per annum, iron does not
yield in price, though it is admitted that
heavy sales have been made at figures below
Philadelphia quotations, and in many in
stances probably at $19, with guarantee
against loss if prices fall.
. Steel rails are firm at $35. Advancing
prices are noted at Pittsburg, and great
'activity iu ore at Cleveland, where, it it
stated, the -.tire Lake Superior product for
next year has been already sold, the Bes
semer at $6 per ton. The speculative mar
kets have been stronger, but show no tin.

Pork has not changed, but lard and hogs
are. weak. The general level of prices has
slightly declined. The large railroad earn
ings for November, showing 12 per cent in
crease, the heavy business in progress
throughout the country, and the hope of an
investment demand in January, naturally
make holders ot good stocks exceedingly
NO DANGEE NOW.
Fears of a monetary difficulty have faded
away, but the market has sot grown easy as
yet, nor have reinforcements come from any
quarter. The want of funds continues. The
West finds in phenomenal business activity
employment for tbe large amount sent
thither, and the anticipated imports of cold
from Europe do not yet arrive. The Treas
ury has managed to avoid accumulation,
and holds $100,000 less cash than on Friday
The business failures number 290, as com
pared with a total of 316 last week. For the
corresponding week of last year the figures

A Lady Unreasonably Detained by Detroit
Cimom Authorities Has N o Be
drew Kallna of Secretary
WIndom In the Case.
WASHiNGTOir, December 13. Secretary
Windom has written a letter to the Collec
tor of Customs at Detroit in regard to the
complaint of Mr. "William McCallum, of
Ianolo, Neb., to the effect that his invalid
wife was unreasonably detained and an
noyed by the action of customs officers at
Detroit on her recent visit to Canada.
The facts in this case are that Mrs. Mc
Callum brought a partly made suit of
clothing for her little son, with enough of
the same piece of cloth to complete it, not
exceeding $5 in value. The inspector who
examined the trunk assumed this to be du
tiable, and instead of collecting the duty at
once and permitting the lady to continue
her journey, detained her overnight, at her
own expense, took possession of her bag
gage, and the next day further obstructed
and distressed her by the failure of the
customs officers to attend to their duties
and the' inefficient character of the business
methodsjat Detroit with references to the ex
amination from Canada. The Secretary
It is a matter of regret to the department
that such an occurrence should be possible at
any custom house in tbe United States, and
you cannot be too earnestly conjured to take
immediate steps to prevent further occurrences
ot the same kind, which can only tend to make
tho public service odious. While nothing can
be done to compensate Mrs. McCallum for the
mental trouble and disturbance inflicted upon
her, it is expected tbat you will find some
proper means to reimburse her for all the ex
penses to which she was unjustifiably put by
the virtual seizure and detention ot her per
sonal effects, and to lnstrnct your subordinates
to exercise proper judgment toward the public,
especially to ladies traveling alone, in the
future performance of their duties. You will
also cease the illegal practice of taking
merchandise from baggage and from the pos
session of tbe owner, levying the duty thereon
and transmitting tbe eoods by express to the
owner, with Instructions to collect the duties
on delivery. Yon are further requested to
furnish a copy of this letter to Mr. McCallum,
who -has the thanks of the department for
bringing to Its attention the unbnsiness-llke
metnoos pursued at your pore.
