Activity in Wall Street.
F!. C4. Dun & f'o.'s Weekly Review of
Trade today will say:
"The srcaloht activity ever .seen in
Wall street ill verts attention in .1 meas

mamil'acturhiK' operations. But while
on every band stock market Interests
are t nunselins" caution and attempting
to prove that pi Ices aie really more
than condition of some of our railroads
warrant, the fact icninins that with
out a. brilliant crop outlook and a sreat
activity of general trade. Wall stieet
could hold no such cai nival. Labor
difficulties arc fewer and less thieat
enlnsr than for several years, and
prices of merchandise hold well. Sta
bility of pi ices and villous proseou
ilon of work at mills indicate the
wholesome condition of the iion and
steel market. Throushotil entire inuRe
of products of this industry the iiiiient

maintain ,1 conservative position and

"Tlie marvelously healthy condition
of business is best appreciated, when it
Is discovered that the defaults last
month wete the smallest in ninety-one
months, with the exception of May to
August, JS99. inclusive. In manufac
tuilnEr lines there were but 163 failures
with a total indebtedness of $1, 097,694,
against ITS for $4,511,003. As 1S&9 re
ported the smallest liabilities of any
full year In two decades, last month's
Rood showing: is made manifest by de
faults In manufacturing- concerns $777,
!rt5. smaller than two years upo. Trad
ing: failures were 5.13 for ?3,lllS.8:';;, and
banking; defaults weie $5:'9.O00. The
death rate was only thiee-llftieths of
one per cent, of all films in business
and loss averaged .$4.70, not a serious
embariafismeiit to general trade. The
proportion of unpaid hills was less
than forty-six cents for each .$1,000 of

"No matter in what light the Apiil
record may be viewed. It makes nn ex
hibit that cannot lull to give encour
agement," Xackawnnna Improvements.
Superintendent of Hrldges and Hulltl.
lugs AV, 13. lllxson, or the Lackawanna
railroad, has just completed the plans
and specifications tor a new summer
station at IJeatt Lake on the Montrose
branch or the Lackawanna railroad.
The building will be of wood, with a
waling room, ti eight room and open
platlorm for passengeis. The plan-?
have been approved, and work nn the
structure will bo rommeueed as soon
The extensive improvements con
templated at the Seianton round house,
which were mentioned exclusively In
The Tribune, have been approved by
the officials, and the work will ho
taken up at an cai ly date,
A new coaling station will bo erected
at Spraguevillo this summer. The coal
will he elevated by machinery, and the
docks will he erected above the main
track, enabling engines to lake coal
from the tracks on either side.
The new tiO-foot turn table put in at
the Cayuga has been completed and Is
low In use. It Is a vast Improvement
on the old one, and greatly facilitates
the work at that point.
Horn's Important Position,
l;. T, Horn, who has been general
'ardmuster of the Lackawanna rail
oad for the- past two years, with
leadquarters at Hoboken, left yester
(lay for Canada, where he will become
assistant general manager of the Inter
colonial railroad, under General Super
intendent L (i, Russell, formerly of
the Lackawanna, who Is now on a sick
leave of absence for three months.
It Is said that Mr. Uussell receives
a salary of $10,000 a year from the
Canadian government, and that Mr,
Horn will receive $:.,00O, annually, and
has signed a live-year contract with

Fifteen of the earnieu employed at

to luck of woik, according to the ex
