Review of Trade to-morrow will say:
"Trade in most important branches con
tinues to show a satisfactory Kaln over
last ear in volume of transactions. Busi
ness sentiment, however, while confident,
is conservative, A notable development
Is the marked Increase in railroad ac
tivitj While track construction Is at
low ebb, the railroads are with con
KPlcuous energy, adding; to their rolllnr;
stock and extending their terminal and
other facilities for handling both freight
and passengers. This creates a notable
demand for iron and steel, which now
constitutes the most Important factor in
Railroad earnings continue large, the
record of gross earnings for the first
week of January showing a gain of
11 6 per cent the largest Increase in over
a year but this in part Is accounted
for by the weather conditions, which
are exceptionally favorable for railroad
traffic. The copper trade Is tire only

current Improvement. The dry goods
market Is not only more active than last

for the coming months. The shoe trade

"Business Is more than up to the sea
sonal mark, but more or less conserva
tism, especially In the East, Is ensen
dered by .the disposition of some Inter
ests to discuss tariff revision In the
face of this is the overloomlng fact that
trad continues to move at a steady
pace, that goods are wanted and that
most orders placed with Jobbers call for
quick shipment. Therefore, It may be
said that actual wants rather than
po'Itical sentiment dominate the situa
tion "Manufacturers who had slowed down
for Inventories have again started up
and this fact combined with the smart
pace witnessed in the iron and steel and
other leading lines, gives industrial af
fairs an unusually favorable aspect. It
Is true that new business with tne steel
mills is not so large as It was, but It is
probable that the Intake of orders equals
shipments, and, moreover, specifications
on rails and track supplies are of heavy
proportions. Western car builders are
well supplied with business, some having
enough orders to keep them busy until
1D14. Southern grades or pig Iron are a
little easier, but finished steel Is tlrm
"Business failures lor the week end
ing January is were 3IJ, which1 compares
with 578 last eek, and 361 a jear ago."

the girls now on strike, lo protect the
girls from the adv-tncen of cadets " Thli
decision qulcklv followed a refusal on
the part of Major Gtvnnr to appoint
special policemen for the purpose
Those in charge of the strike had hoped
for some official action whereby the girls
could have the desired protection, but tlio
Major wrote the women they did not
know the gravity of what thej asked,
and If he appointed specials for their
side, he would have to appoint them for
ihe other side and then violence and dis
