DUN'S REVIEW OP TRADE
Versatile Weather Has Produced Er
ratic Fluctuations in Prices
and Affected Business.
By Inclusive Wire from Tin Associated Pics.
New York. April 23. R. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade tomorrow
Versatile weather has produced er
ratic fluctuations In prices and affected
business very differently, according to
locality. The extremes were blizzards
and oppressive heat, with every Inter
mediate variety. Retail distribution of
merchandise has maintained a good
average, losses at some points being off
set by gains elsewhere. Slanufacturlng
plants are well employed, except where
wage disputes Interrupt.
Slost lurge consumers of pig Iron have
provided for their needs well up to the
end of the year, nnd consequently there
is little change to report in the situa
tion except as to small orders that ap
pear from time to time.
Increased output and quicker deliv
eries of coke facilitate work at Iron fur
naces and reduce the price, while the
lower list for anthracite coal has stimu
lated orders. Lumber nnd building ma
terials are having the usual spring ac
tivity. Slanufaetures of cotton goods are still
behind with deliveries, and active ma
chinery Is assured for some time to
come. Labor disputes have been tem
porarily adjusted, maklns the output
very heavy as compared with recent
weeks when the strikes were causing
Footwear shops at tho east have few
new orders, and shipments from Bos
ton continue to decrease.
While the prospects for n full yield
of wheat are less bright than they were
a week- ago, tho sharp rise In price
must be attributed In part to skillful
manipulation by Interests recently
prominent In tho stock market. A year
ago there was a sharp advance in price
on gloomy reports, yet the final yield
promises to be ti record-breaker. Ex
ports from all ports ot the United
States, Including flour, were 4,041,611
bushels, against 3,433,987 last year,
shipments being mnlnly of wheat pur
chased before tho advance. Corn was
attracted to market by the better terms
offered, receipts for tho week reaching
1,304,470 bushels, against 1,138,398 a year
ago, but Atlantic exports fell off to
310,237 bushels against 1,275,15(5 lit 1901.
