RESUME OF BUSINESS
FOB THE PAST WEEK
NEW YORK. Feb. 19. The most striking
news of the business week, as shown by
special telegrams from correspondents of
tho International Mcrcantllo Agency
throughout tho United States and Canada
Is found In Pittsburg advices that con
stituent stoel corporation companies mak
ing Gtcel bars find the Improvement in de
mand sufficient to warrant discussion of
a voluntary offer to advance wages a
Quito as significant aro reports to the
International Morcantllo Agency from
New England that tho volume of railway
traffic there in general merchandise lines
Is 15 per cent heavier than a year ago;
that It Is heavier than a year ago on
roads centering at Chicago, at Duluth and
tho 'Twin Cities," at St. Iouls and New
Orleans, and Is but slightly below last
year's total at Pittsburg, with tho volume
This, In tho face of Interruptions to
traffic by snow, lco and extrcmo cold
weather, presents a more favorable situa
tion respecting current distribution of
goods than had been supposed Prices of
shoes aro to bo advanced soon.
Smaller Now England cotton mills may
have to shut down during tho summer
months, owing to uncertainty of prices
and supplies. Conservative Southern ad
vices say many Intorlor buyers aro un
questionably loaded with high-priced cot
ton, and xinlcss prices advance effects may
bo felt later. Further Investigation con
cerning winter wheat and range cattlo
shows that recent severity of weather has
caused only nominal losses in either di
rection. Western Pennsylvania expert
opinion Inclines to the view that there will
be no strike of bituminous coal minora
between tho Allcghonles and tno Missis
sippi where operators have refused to
moot demands made.

The spring sunBhlno has awakened thC
lethargic Utah hen and eggs have takon
a decided drop on tho local market. The
top price was reached about two weeks
ngo, when the few cases of fresh egga
which camo to market wero picked up
readily at ?12 a case. With a few days
of open weather, they declined to 511,
and would have continued to go lower
but for tho late snows. It was not until
tho middle of this week that many were
sold as low as 310, and yesterday they sud
denly dropped to 59, with a few selling
as low as JS.50. With no serious rclapso
In weather conditions, they will contlnuo
to decline until tho low mark is reached

Grain and Provisions.
CHICAGO, Feb. 10. Wheat for May de
livery today old at 51 03 a bushel, an ad
vance o tf&raHc over last night's close.
Other deliveries wero also strong, the Jul
option at one tlmo bolbg up 3c compared
with yesterday's final quotation. Sharp ad
vances In foreign markets, duo to posslblo
war complications, wero potent factors In
the local situation. Competition among
millers for wheat sultablo for the flour
trade was an equally vital Influence. May
wheat closed at a net gain ot SU'S&ac,
July wheat finished. Via up, May corn up
V-c oats lVfec, and provisions 32g'l2&c.
On tho wildest trading experienced since
the market started on its bullish courao
May wheat opened at S1.00S1.01. Tho ini
tial quotations wero WS'lHo abovo yes
terday's closing figures. July oponcd
ic hlgbor at &0'4&2OU.c
Tho action of tho market was fore
shadowed by a sharp advanco In prices
abroad, Liverpool wheat futures being
quoted 1HS1W.0 higher and London quo
tations closing ltt2Vic Idffher. The
growing Hcarclty of good wheat through
out tho country was an added Inspiration
to the buyer. Eastorn bidders for Oklu-
homa wboat made offers equal to SI f. o. b.
Galveston for hard wheat, and mot with
no responso from country dealers. Ro
ports from other Boctionts showed that
similar conditions applied to tho greator
nnrt nf tho winter wheat region. Spring
wheat mlllors, owing to the .greuter scar
city of their own special milling variety,
were roportcd In close compotltlon with
millers m Kansas and Nebraska for the
wlntor wheat of those States. All those
considerations doveloped a very bullish
sentiment aaiong local tradors, the buying
Increasing as tho prica continued to rise.
When May wheat reached $1.01 the big
long Interest becamo an open seller. For
a time! t looked as though the markot
was on tho point of breaking. After re
acting to 99c, however, tho prlco was
again forced upward by tho urgent de
mand from shortH. Trading was so largo
and general that it was decidedly difficult
to follow. Fluctuates In May wero espe
cially wldo, and it was necessary to go
away over tho market to fill orders,
Prices climbed upward until tho noon hour,
when the high point of tho day was
reached, May soiling, at 51.03,
Meantlmo July had risen to 93c Somo
reaction resulted on heavy renllrlng saios,
but within the last row minutes of trad
ing May again touched 31.03. The cloeo
was at $1.024 for May and at 92?,o for
July. Clearances of wheat and flour were
canal to 3GS.320 bushels. Primary receipts
wero 409.400 bushels, against 417,600 a year
ngo. Exports for tho week, according to
Bradstrecfa, wore 1,657,000 bushels. Min
neapolis, Duluth and Chicago roportcd re
ceipts of 25-1 cars, against :ai a year ago.
While tho bull campaign was in full
progress tho anthuslaBm In tho corn mar
ket had died out temporarily. Not until
lato in tho. duyj did. jtho. com jlt feel .the .
effects of tho bullish foreign news, and
tho strength In wheat. There was big
coiling off May corn by ono of tho moBt
prominent commission houses, which was
reported to havo sold over a million bush
ols during tho day. Tho opening on May
was tt5A!Qi higher at G5yifi55IJi56c.
There was very little corn wanted early
In tho day and tho prlco gradually de
clined to bU&c. The close was lfrm at
5GVc. July showed greator strength and
closed lUc hlghor atlHVfcffSl&c. Tho rela
tive strength in July was duo to heavy
purchases by a largo provision Interest.
Local receipts wero 19C cars, nono of con
Oats wero strong, but not especially ac
tive. After opening i'Sic higher at 44U
44$ic. May ranged between 44fM5V6c, clos
ing at 45ttc. July closed o higher at 40c.
Local rocolpta were 70 cars.
Provisions felt tho effoct of the war as
much, If not more, than the grain mar
kets. There was an active demand for In
vestment account tho ontlro day, and
shorts wore bIbo liberal buyers. Whllo
tnoro was considerable liquidation at
Umc3, offerings were well raKcn, and the
cntlro list showed gains. May pork led In
tho advance, closing Mia hlghor nt $15.67,
after selling between $10.17. and' 515.C7,t.
May lard was up 12V at $7.90, and ribs
37&c higher at $7.42.t Estimated rccoipts
