Movement to Distributing and Retail
NEW YORK, March 1. Tho move
ment of cotlon goods to distributing and
retail markets continued in large vol
ume during tho week. The retailers woro
particularly actlvo In their purchases
of wash fabrics, white goods and dress
cottons. Domestics, prints and staples
of other characters also woro bought
from the mill agents In full enough vol
ume to prevent accumulation.
Fall River stId 1-40,000 pleceB of print
cloths during the week; half were spot
delivery. The export demand for China
has ceased for the time being, after 30,
000 bales were sold. The exports from
Now York uro about up to those of a
year ago. Jobbers throughout the coun
try are keeping stocks down and order
ing In small lots.
The easing of cotton values has not
unsettled cloth values as much aa was
expected, due to maintenance of domand
for cloths for consumption. There is
still a restriction of product because of

The Financier says today:
The principal feature of tho state
ment of New York clearing-house banks
for the week ending March 1 was an
unexpected decrease of $S,G01,000 in cash.
Loans expanded 511,893, 000, owing doubt
less to the March 1 dividend and Inter
The effect of tho increase in loans and
the loss In cash was to bring about an
expansion of SS.874,000 in deposits, which
of itself called for additional reserve re
quirements and the not result was a
shrinkage of $10,483,400 in surplus rc:
servo, tile present excess a.Tiove the 25
per cent minimum standing at $2,690,250.
It Is not llkelv that tho reserve will
remain at this low figure, but for the
present It indicates that unless the hanks
further increa3o their cash holdings,
flrmor money rates arc not at all unlikely.

Prospects in American Wheal
Belt Flattering; Primary
CT-nOAGO, March 1. Abundance of
moisture, good snow covering and mild
temperatures gave wheat prices today a
tendency to fall. The market closed
weak, iJc to $3c under last night
Corn showed a net decline of i8ic to 2c,
and oats a drop of ic. In provisions
thero was a it setback of 2Jc to 10c.
Flattering prospects Jn the American
winter crop belt quickly turned the at
tention of wheat speculators from cabbies
that told of decreasing stocks at Liver
pool and of reduced acreage In Rumania
and Bulgaria. Moreover, export bids
were out of line and there was word of
free offerings by Argentina. In conse- i
quence, an upturn at the start was soon
more than offset.
Diminishing receipts both northwest
and southwest proved Insufficient to
"bring about any material rally In wheat.
It was noticed, however, that bottom
prices reached were but little below those
of tho day before Primary receipts
amounted to 624,000 bushels, agalnGt 439,
000 bushels a year ago; seaboard clear
ance of wheat and flour equaled 300,000
com received only meagor support. It
was estimated that not to exceed 20 per
cent of the Immense stock on sidetracks
hero had yet been sold to shippers. Sym
pathy swayed oats to the bear side with
corn. Both cereals finished aC Inside fig
ures. Larger receipts of hogs cased provi
sions. Nevertheless, holders continued to
realize profits and were helped by atfalr
ha:;ge of the leading futures.

It is cheaper to obey I
the smoke ordinance than it I
is to dodge it much cheaper. A Ke- H
wanee Smokeless Firebopc Boiler will not H
only prevent smoke to the satisfaction of H
your authorities, but it will give you the H
maximum heat on the minimum fuel H
an,d the fuel may be the cheapest grade of H
coal mined. H
Even if there were no such I
thing as a smoke ordinance, it would H
pay you to put that boiler in your estab- H
lishment. Being made of stel it will H
last a lifetime. Moreover it is the only boiier in
the world that it is easy to insure.
Better drop over to our of- I
fice and look into this proposition. Or H
better still, telephone and ask one of our ex
perts to come over and see you and bring his facts and
figures with him. The interview means money 'in your pocket,
And it is American money not stage money.

Stocks Fall to Point of Resistance Dur
ing the Week.
N1DW YORK, March 1. The fall In
stocks this week to a new low level car
ried them to a point of resistance which
left speculative sentiment still unde
cided as' to the significance of tho halt.
Tho accumulation of short sales created
a demand which was given first Impor
tance as an explanation of the rally. Re
ports Indicated some Investment demand.
In this connection the fall In a number
of dividend-paying railroad stocks to a
C per cent Income basis, or to a parity
with the price basis at which Southern
Pad lie Is underwritten, seemed to result
In lessening pressure of liquidation. This
symptom points to the Southern Pacific
syndicate undertaking as one source of
tho market's burdens.
The killing of IWadero. tho withholding
of a decision In the Minnesota rate case,
the objection to the Union Pacific disso
lution plan bv the California railroad
commission, the obstruction to the New
York subway contracts and tho appeal
to eastern railroad trainmen to organlzo
for a coming struggle for a wage In
crenso ull these Incidents converged on
the weak market at the opening of tho
week and seemed to exhaust the pres
ent factors of depression.
Bank reserves, as shown by the returns
to the romptroller now being compiled, are
unusually low for the seasoju and. It is
agreed, call for cautious procedure.
News of commercial failures at Impor
tant European points threatened a com
plication early in the week, but later po
litical news restored confidence. The In
auguration of the new president brings
a train of events which have boon a
potent Influence, by anticipation and con
jecture, upon the stock market. The
what trade professes anxiety over In
sufficient moisture for winter wheat.
