business done was all-rail to seaboard.
Tho new crop has sufllclent moisture and

There was little disposition on the part
of packers and longs to sell. Investors

DOMESTIC TllADE IRREGULAR
Export War Orders n Feature Mild
Weather a Factor.
irregularity Is tho dlstlnRulshlnir fea
ture In trndo nnd Industry, according to
Bradstreefs, nnd a plainly marked lino
of dlvcrgcnco Is visible betweon exports
and purely domestic trade movements.
In export trade war orders and grain
exports furnish souiccs of marked actlv.
Ity, though cotton exports, despite furthor
expansion nnd tho largest week's total
since tho war began, are still far below
a year ago. Demand for American prod
ucts to be used by tho troops In tho
neld Is In turn reflected In activity In
favored Industries, nnd many lines are
reported busily employed thereon, though
a jarring nolo Is found In reports that
foreign takings havo been exaggerated
at some markets. Then, too, tho scarcity
of nnd high prices for ocean freight car
riage nctfl as a bar to fullest export ac
tivity. In purely domestic trade tho sit
uation Is not much changed from the
previous rather slow pace. Unseasonably
mild weather has limited retail trade,
reduced re-order trade from Jobbers, usual
at this season, and made collections. If
anything, a shade slower than a week
ago. Holiday trade, however, shows ex
pansion. At the South tho additionally
retarding feature Is the unsatisfactory
price for cotton, which is lower, lth
the holding endency, If anything, more
marked than ever, thus preventing the
liquidation of old accounts and the en
largement of new business Building
operations tend to quiet down, although
open weather favors completion of mnny
structures. Lumber Is dull the country
over, but especially so In the South and
In the Pacific Northwest, and scarcity
of freight room limits foreign shipments
of these and other heavy freights, such
as conl. In tho textile tades dulnesn
Is a feature In raw wool, and mills em
ployed on domestic goods find scant work,
with scarcity of material reported as a
result of foreign embargoes. A growing
cause of complaint In the printed cotton
goods trade arises from reported scarcity
of dyostuffs, foreshadowing a possible
shortage of dyed goods.

Btrong demand for October, apparently
from Investors, and the heavy buying.
Opening prices were two points down to

market advanced following tho lead set
by October. Offerings were light and It
was plain that the bears were timid
about making commitments on short side.

Commerce Board Meets to Consider
EaBtern Roads' Application.
WASHINGTON, Dec. B.-The first con
ference of tho full membership of tho In
terstate Commerce Commission on the 5
per cent, rate Increase sought by eastern
railroads will be held next Monday to con
sider a tentative draft of an opinion al
ready formulated by one member of tho
commission. This member Is said to be
Commissioner Daniels, although this
could not be verified today.
As the usual procedure will be followed
In this case, an opinion by ono member,
who has been selected to wrlto the major
ity opinion. Is, at the first conference,
only tentative. Discussion of the view
presented, which. It is asserted. Is favor
able to the railroads' contention, will oc
cupy the attention of other members of
the commission for some time to come.
As a member expresses It today, It will
bo some tlma before a decision is reached.
"We want to have a complete opinion If
possible," he said.
All suggestlona ns to possible dates as
to when the commission will hand down
Its decision arc, df course, problematical,
but It seems to bo the general consensus
of opinion that It will be before New
