Eeports to Sradstreet's show a slight im
provement in general trade, due to the
opening of spring. The drygoods lines do
not share in this activity. It is thought
ihat good crop prospects trill encourage
legitimate business. K. G. Dun & Co. find
matters generally rather dull and quiet
rSFECXjLX. TELEGRAM TO THX EISPATCH.1
Kew Yokk, April S. There is a mod
erate improvement in the state of general
trade noted in telegrams to Bradstreet'i this
week. Spring weather is largely responsible
for this. The greatest relative activity is
at Kansas City, St, Paul, St. Joseph and
Louisville, though a fair distribution is re
ported at Philadelphia, Boston Cleveland,
St Louis, San Francisco, Galveston and
New Orleans. Panning is well advanced
"West and South, and, excepting rice crops,
are promising welL
AtNew Tork groceries are in fair de
mand, somewhat in excess of a year ago.
Commission liquor dealers report general
trade improving, with prices, particularly
for Eastern rye whiskies, tending upward.
Cigar manufacturers and dealers in seed
leaf tobacco, dealers in drags and furniture
report trade fair only. Stock values at New
Tork have improved sharply on the prospect
of the intervention of a leading banking
firm in the affairs of Atchison.
GOULD ALL EIOHT.
The strength of the Gould stocks leads to
the belief that that interest has been pla
cated in the matter. Bonds are strong and
fairly active. Money at New York has re
turned to a lairly easy basis. Call loans,
34i4 per cent Foreign exchange is
steady, but hangs below the gold shipping
point Demand sterling, M 88ii 89.
Forty-four railroad companies report to
Bradstreet's gross earnings of 513,778,957 in
March, against $12,347,553 in March, 1888,
a gain of 12 per cent
Reports to Bradstreet's of mercantile fail
ures throughout the United States during
the first quarter of the current year show a
total of 3,569, against 3,053 in the first quar
ter ol 1888. The aggregate liabilities of
failing traders are 541,861,000, against $34,
108,000, and actual assets $20,376,000, against
517,936,000 in ihe first quarter of 1888. Five
or six lailures in Boston with exceptionally
heavy liabilities will more than account for
the $7,000,000 excess liabilities this year
over the first quarter in 1888.
The bank clearings at 40 cities for March
aggregate $4,479,128,091 against $3,782,
909,740 in 1888, an increase of 18.4 per cent
The total for the first three months of 1889
is $13,313,788,214 against $11,376,678,609
during the first quarter of 18SS, an increase
of 17 per cent
GOOD CEOP PBOSPECTS.
The reported generally satisfactory con
dition of the winter wheat crop, favorable
weather throughout the wheat belt and fair
progress in planting wheat has resulted in
slighter volume of specnlative trading
less than one-half as much as last week
and in SDite of renewed inauiries from the
United Kingdom and France prices are off
i;j per cent at js ew xorfi. A t Chicago the
May option dropped 7c to 92c on Thurs
day on free speculative sales. Flour sym
pathized and is offl525c and heavy.
.Stocks of wheat out of farmers' hands
east of the Eocky Mountains, March 30,
amounted to 39,636,000 bushels, against 44.
683,000 bushels March 1 and 59,859,000
bushels April 1, 1888. Stocks of flour at
principal points of accumulation aggregate
1,814,000 againstl.823,000 barrels one month
ago, and 1,690,000 barrels one year ago.
Corn, with a good foreign demand, is firmly
held, and 1 cent higher. Oats are steadv.
The heavy arrivals of raw sugar are offset
by limited offerings at extreme prices in
anticipation of higher prices later on. Re
finers have full stocks of raw 26,000 tons,
against 31,000 tons a year ago, while im
porters have only 21,000 tons against 99,000
tons a year ago. The "trust" is reported to
have transferred the American refinery at
San Francisco, to avoid legal complications.
The world's visible supply and the crop out
look favor full prices, while the increased
American consumption of foreign sugar
within three months is placed as high as 13
per cent, dne to short home crop. Prices
are one-sixteenth to three-sixttenths of a
cent higher on the week at New York. Re
fined is a quarter of a cent off at San Fran
cisco. DBTGOODS LESS ACTIVE.
The actual distribution of coffee is light
Prices have been lower, but Thursday's re
action brought them to last week's close.
Full crop estimates and financial uneasi
ness abroad have lent heaviness to option
dealings, with prices off 4c Drygoods
jobbers are less active in New York and
Boston. The March distribution in New
York did not equal expectations. Com-
J tared with 1888 the spring business in most
ines at both markets shows a satisfactory
Resumption of work at Fall Biver has
depressed print cloths prices Xc Aside
from this prices are generally lairly well
held, with brown cottons relatively weak
est. Iiow grade ginghams have almost dis
appeared as a weakening factor in the mar
ket "Woolen goods are in good movement
on old orders. Baw wool is dull, with the
tone of the market weak; prices unchanged.
Baw cotton is l-16c higher on good demand
and a lighter crop movement.
There have been reported to this Journal
for the past three months 160 industrial
strikes, involving 36,731 employes, as com
pared with 190 strikes and 71,952 strikers in
three months of 1888, and 262 strikes and
120,219 strikers in 1887. Copper is still held
at 16$e per pound in this market, and con
sumers are unable to obtain supplies from
the syndicate stocks at a lower price.
American and European parties interested
are in consultation at Paris. Prices are
much lower abroad. The opinion prevails
that no important decline will be realized
here for a month or six weeks.
TBADE DULL AND QUIET.
finch Is the General Report Received By
R.G.Dnn fc Co.
New York, April 5. R. O. Dnn & Co.'s
weekly review of trade says: Railroad earnings
show an increase of about 15 per cent over last
year for March, so far as reports have been re
ceived, and yet stocks are lower, though at
later quotations partial recovery is seen. Trade
at interior points is dnll or quiet In nearly all
cases, though at Cleveland It is fairly satisfac
tory; at Atlanta It Is satisfactory, with spring
business well Sustained; at Omaha it is consid
ered goodt at Kansas City improving, ana at
Bt Paul trade in dry goods and clothing is
very active. There is Improvement at Detroit,
particularly in shlp-bullding, and lumber is
firmer. The money markets are easy and col
lections have improved somewhat at Kansas
City and Detroit, but have fallen off at Atlanta.
Wool has declined for nearly all qualities,
except New Mexico and Texas. The average
of 104 quotations is 24-8 cents. The outlook Is
favorable for a good demand when the new
clip appears. Depressing influences are felt in
the several branches of the drygoods and
clothing trade, not the least being the accu
mulation of stocks which the open winter left
unsold. Raw cotton is Y, cent stronger. In
the iron market more pressure to realize is
seen here and at Philadelphia, and Southern
iron is offered at $50 to $100 below the corre
sponding Northern grades. Bar iron remains
very dull, and rails have sold moderately
witnont lifting of prices. The allotment for
the year has been increased 200,000 tons. In
the coat market no Improvement appears. The
sales of copper abroad at about 41 per ton,
with no news of settlement between the syndi
cate and producers, causes stagnation here,
and while lake is sold at 15 cents for April;
the quotation for G. M. B. July is only 10.0a
cental Oil has been a shade higher, but pork
SO cents lower. Pressure to sell abroad and
fear of roonetary'trotbles growing out of the
Paris difflculty.have reduced the price of coffee
accent. The average prices of all commodi
ties have again declined over half of 1 per cent
for the week.
The most important change is the fall of 2c
in wheat, which naturUly weakens as the
dreams of expected' famine give place to the
realization of large unsold stocks on hand. Re
ports from growing and sowing regions con
tinue to forshadow a large yield this year, and
the demand from abroad, though better since
prices fell, is not large enough to prompt a
carrying of surplus stock on hand. Corn nas
look for improvement in all branches of legit
imate business. The export business distinct
ly improves already, and forthepast five weeks
the value shipped from this port aggregates
S34,O7U,000, against t25.901.000 for the same weeks
last year. The apprehension of stringency in
the money markets about April 1 has now
passed, and the heavy liquidation in securities
on foreign account causes as yet no such with
drawal of foreign capital as has been f eared.See
retary WIndom has made it clear that he will
not at present pay 108 for 4 per cents, or pur
chase i per cents in preference, and during the
past week the Treasury has taken in about
1500.000 more money than it has nald out
The business failures number 222, as com
pared with a total of 240 last week and 249 the
week previous. For the corresponding week
last year the figures were 227.

The above table shows what can be accomplished by anyone disposed to lay aside a small
portion of their weekly receipts, and depositing the same in some well-managed Savings Bank.
Everyman who is obliged to work for his living should make a point to lay up money for
that "rainy day" which we are all likely to encounter when least expected. Unquestionably the
best way to provide for this emergency is to open an account with a good, live Savings Bank.
Accumulated money, thus cared for, is safe, is rapidly increasing, is always ready to use
when needed, and is free from the many uncertainties and fatalities of life.
Strive at once to get together five dollars, or even one dollar, and make your first deposit.
Then resolve to add to it as often as you can, even thongh the amount be small.
Tou will be surprised with the magic comfort and strength of this course. Nobody knows,
without having tried it, how easy a thing it is, without being miserly or stingy, to save money,
when once an account with a bank has been opened.
A man then feels a new ambition and a constant desire to enlarge his deposit. It gives him
pleasant lessons in frugality and economy, weans him from the habits of extravagance, and is
the very best guard in the world against intemperance, dissipation and vice.
If you are not already a depositor, and have no special bank In view, permit us to suggest
that you at once try a deposit with
THE PITTSBURG BANK FOR SAVINGS, No. 60 Fourth Ay., Pittsburg, Pa.

NATURAL GAS METER.
Safe, Accurate, Durable, Eco
nomical and Noiseless.
Over 1,000 already in use in Pittsburg and
vicinity, giving perfect satisfaction to the con
sumers and the gas companies.
This is the only cas meter manufactured
that will resist any pressure that can be ad
mitted, and, at the same time, be relied npon
to measure natural gas accurately.
It is of superior mechanical design and
workmanship, and wUl last longer in use than
any other meter.
This meter is constructed entirely of metal,
and no part of it can in any way be injnred or
impaired by the action of the gas.
It Is so constructed that it is not liable to set
out of order: the moving parts are almost in
perfect equilibrium, requiring a pressure of
less than one-hundredth of a pound to do the
work of measuring the minimum; and it will
likewise measure the maximum quantity of
gas, or its full capacity, at high or varying
pressnres, without any readjustment of the
parts. Every revolution discharges a certain
quantity of gas, and the measurement is en
tirely exact, whether the quantity passing
through is at the rate of 1 cubic foot or 1,000
cnbio feet per hour. With this great rane of
capacity, it is at the same time safe, durable
and entirely noiseless in its operations.
Consumers will readily appreciate the advan
tages this meter enables them to secure. All
who are desirous to economizo in the use of
gas, and pay for just what they use, can now
do so, instead of being obliged to pay a certain
sum per month, or per annum, which precludes
any opportunity to realize the benefits which
should result from a careful and economical
use of the gas.
AU honse meters are tested at the works to a
pressure of 20ponnds per square inch or, over
80 times the pressure at which the gas is usu
