Trade Holding Up.
It is said (hat trade in all lines of
lo'hing and dry goods lias held up un
usually well this season. Following the
busv 'liolidav season there is likelv to
ho a lull, but this year there has been
rather loss than usual, it is said, and
the call for goods of all kinds has been
fxcullent. Silks and dress goods, linens
and domestics, as well as Indict' suits
and coats, have formed a strong feature
of the general trade. Wearing apparel
for boys and girls has sold well, and
ho movement in shoes aud rubbers ha
been fully up to the expectations of the
The weather has been nuusually fa
orable for all kinds of trade of this
son., with cold enough to demand heavy
clothing and with occasional dump and
wet spells,. which caused the purchase
of heavy footwear for both uien and
women. It is said that tho next sixty
days in the diy goods aud clothing line3
will be devoted almost entirely to the
disposal of heavyweights, and the word
from this time on is, ''Clean out at
tomo price to make- room for new
goods.' Signs cver.ywhero indicate
that tho usual midwinter sales arc on
everywhere, aud it is expected that this
will continue for a month or six weeks.
Reports from hardware dealers indi
cato a rather light trauo in retail goods,
but with an excellent movement in prac
licalh' all -wholesale lines, which snows
r.hat 'small merchants in the surround
iug country districts arc preparing
early for the. spring trade. This applies
to good required for immediate delivery,
1 an well as to orders for the future. The.
I kind of goods ordered shows, also, that
the demand iB from the farmers who arc
getting ready for extended operations
later on. Harness, farm hand-tools, such
as hocH, rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows
and the like, Which will bo required in
tho first stages of soil preparation and
planting, form a largo part of the trade.
Beta.it Demand Good.
In retail lines, there is considerable
demand for automobile supplies and for
light harness, as if in anticipation of
the approaching warm seasou. The call
for household supplies lias been almost
unprecedented, it. is said, which is ac
counted for partly on tho ground that
.there is a large number of new in
habitants coming into the city aiuMhc
immediate neighborhood all the time.
Tho trade in builders' hardware is also
&aid to bo unusually active, thus show
ing tho aftcr-effocts of the tremendous
movement in the erection of new huild
ings during the past year. j
l The paint business lias exceeded tho
highest expectations of dealers, it is
said, and in company with several other
lines has been superior to the trade for
any other year during tho same season.
In Bporting goods, the trade, has not
. been heavy, and has been confined prin
cipally to "fishing tackle and kodak sup
plies. This latter business is growing
rapidly, dealers say, aud forms a large
part of tho general trade even during
the winter season.
An indication of tho financial
strength of tho community at the prcs
, cnt timo is found in the case with which
collections arc made. Thcro is a
marked increase in tho feeling, of trade
this year over most preceding .years;
li ii vers and retail dealers appear to be
we'll supplied with cash and amply able
to meet their obligations when due.
The feature of the stock market dur
ing the past week has been the unusual
activity in Utah-Idaho preferred stock,
which was sold as high as $8.75. Brok
