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 will say: 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 interruption. 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. Failures for the week numbered 212 in tho United States against 215 last year, and IS In Canada against 25 n year ago. THE CONDITION OF ABOHBISHOP COBRIGAN. Dy Kxclushe Wire from Tho Associated Prcs.
