REVIEW FOR THE WEEK.
There has been rather more activity in
the oil market this week,lhe volume of
business in the aggregate, being consid
erably larger than that of the week pre
ceding, and notwithstanding the feeling
is stronger an 4 prices a shade better, yet
the ineqaulity in prices still crops out and
presents a bad feature in thej trade, so
far at least as Pittsburgh is (Teemed,
and what is worse than all there seems
to be no way of removing it. The fact
that prices are higher is not always in
indication of a healthy market; as the
case now stands the manufacturer is
none the better, as; Crude has also . ad
vanced with Relined, and now, as before,
the former is much higher, relatively',
than the latter.
Receipts Crude this week, 11,234; last
week, 18,498; from January Ist to date,
494,911; same time last year. 998,346.
Exports Refined this week, 15,325; last
week, 15,182; January lat to date, 315,5E0;
same time last year, 882,418. Sales this
week, 63,500; last week, 29,000. As will
be seen by reference to the above statis•
tics, we are considerable behind both in
receipts of Crude and shipments of Re
Not a sale reported. and the market
does not differ from that of yesterday;
Fifteen centaseems_4o be regarded as
the standard price, though there is lit.

time there are but very few, if any I
buyers at that figure. Private die.
patches from above report a stronger
feeling, but there, as here, it is no;-
likely there was anything done..
But a single sale reported. 500 each,

take advantlee of the trade. A move
ment is now on foot, coming, no doubt,
from these shysters, many of whom do
not knoW of what a legitimate business
consists, fo have this rule erased. The
Chicago phpers, very properly, are op
posed to the repeal, and it is not likely
that these reckless speculators, will suc
ceed in gaining their point. About this
time last year there was a "corner" in
the Chicago wheat market, causing a
heavy loss, to many honest and legiti
mate dealers, others who had all to win
and nothing to lose, failed to come to
time, and thus the only ones who did not
lose were those who belonged to the
genus properly designated as °scalpers."
