A Beriew of the Situation Shows
Little Sign of Improvement.
1R0K AKD COAL STILL WEAKER.
The Centennial Observances Checked Trade
in the East,
AGRICULTURAL LINES ALSO LOWER.
A Synopsis of the Beporti SfCeiTed Ij Bradstreel's ui
. G. Dnn Co.
The trade situation is not regarded as en
couraging by Sradstreet's and IS. G. Dun &
Co. General business lias been depressed in
the East Prices on iron tend lower and the
outlook for coal is not bright. Agricultural
products are also lower.
rSriCUI, TltZGRJLM TO TBS BISFATCH.1
NewYobk, May 3. Special telegrams
to Sradstreet's indicate that the volume of
general trade has been checked at nearly
every city of special commercial importance
during the week. At the larger Eastern
centers the New York Centennial celebra
tion was largely responsible. But St Louis,
Kansas City, SL Joseph and New Orleans
report less activity in demand and dis
tribution for both seasonable goods and
Savannah, St. Paul and Chicago have en
joyed a moderate activity. Cold weather
has checked demand in regions tributary to
Cleveland, Xouisvilie and St. Louis. An
other Tessel has been chartered to load
wheat for Australia at San Francisco. Cat
tle at "Western markets are 20 to 30 cents
lower, with free offerings.
IN AGRICULTUBAL X.TSCES.
The breadttufls markets all tend down
ward again. Flour prices are off 5 to 15
cents, with wheat. After Friday's rally
wheat is one-eight of a cent lower on the
week, with a bearish "West, in Spjte of
stronger cables and renewed exports. Freer
shipments and ofieriags of corn depressed
prices three-fourths of a cent, and similar
influences put oats down one-fourth ot a
cent net on the week.
Reports of stocks of wheat at nearly 1,000
points of accumulation east of the Bocky
j Mountains show 34,363,000 bushels so held
last Saturday, a decrease of 5,273,000 bush
els during April and 14,000,000 bushels less
than were held a year ago. Indian corn
stocks are 15,665,112 bushels, or 25 per cent
less than on April 1. Stocks of wheat flour
are 90,000 barrels larger thsFn one month
'ago and 773,000 barrels iu excess of stocks
held May 1.1888.
1 Hog products, excepting lard, which is
heavy, are generally active and firmer. Ex
ports of flour and wheat this week are equal
to only 892,000 bushels of wheat against
".1,504,000 bushels last week and 1,533,000
'bushels in the like wees last year.
New York trade has been trreativ cur
tailed. Exceptions are shown in the stronger
local demand for country produce and
iruiti Groceries, naval stores, building
materials, dry-roods, furniture, boots and
shoes and rubber goods are quiet. "WooL
paper, glassware and china, machinery ana
leather are dull. Paints and oils continue
in good demand. Crude rubber and build
ing materials are strong and tend upward.
A bullish temper animates the New York
Stock market, based on good crop prospects
and favorable net earnings reports for March
by Western railroads. Bonds are strong on
active investment demand. Money at New
York -s easy. Call loans 2f per cent,
oreifc ecrhjuiBe is dull and strong. On
Friday J2,750,000-joifl was engaged for ex
port Demand sterling $4 894 89
There were 61 strikes involving 12,193
strikers reported to Sradstreet's during
April, against 123 strikes with 26,007
Strikers in April. 1888. Since January 1,
1889, there have been reported 221 strikes
and 48,924 strikers, against 313 strikes and
97,960 strikers four months of 1888, and 393
strikes and 153,038 strikers in 1887. Several
orders for steel rails ,have been placed for
$26 at the mill, a cut of SI in price, causing
surprise in the trade. There is no improve
ment in pig iron.
BUSINESS IN DKT GOODS.
Unfavorable weather and holidays have
curtailed dry goods sales at New York and
Boston, but the latter part of the week has
witnessed a good trade in job offerings at
New York. Commission .men report no
change. April trade at Bo'ton was of sat
isfactory volume. Prices are unchanged,
except for print cloths, which are l-16c
higher on steady demand and increasing
costof cotton, which, in turn, is c higher
on light crop movement good demand and
increasing speculative interest Baw wool
is quiet and unchanged. The new clip is
reporieu to De oi gooa quality.
Baw sugar advanced Jgcat New York,
although extreme dullness characterized
the market, owing to the interruption to
business the first half of the week. The
movement of refined was very quiet and
prices left off as one week ago. The price
pf coffee in speculative circles advanced)
c on Thursday, on stimulating cables,
after a very dull week in all lines.
Business failures reported to Sradsirecft
number 151 in the United States this week,
against 181 last week, and 156 this week last
year. Canada had 29 this week, against 25
last week. The total of failures in the
United States, January 1 to date, is 4,396,
against 3,892 in 1888.
IEON DOES NOT IJLPBOYfL
It. G. Dunn & Co.'a Review of the General
New Tokk, May 3. E. G. Dunn &
Co.'s weekly review of trade says: The un
precedented interruption of business by
Centennial preparations and celebrations
has made the week nearly a blank in com
mercial or financial respects. At New
York, accumulated orders gave a surface
appearance ofgreater activity on Thursday
and .Friday, but it is yet too soon to judge
which way the tide will turn, and the re
porta from other cities, though neatly all
hopeful in tone, do not indicate the ex
Mie situation seems better at Milwaukee,
satisfactory at Omaha, good at Cleveland as
to most branches, but questionable as to
iron; rather dull at Kansas City and St.
Paul, and less encouraging at the chief cen
ters of the grain, iron, coal and leather
trades. Collections are "far from satisfac
tory" at Milwaukee and not improved at
Detroit, but in other lines there, and at
other cities generally, they seem fairly sat
isfactory, and at New York some dry goods
dealers complain that collections are "too
good" buyers keep far within means.
COXTSADICXOBT WOOL SEPOBXS.
Reports about the wool trade are contra-

months disturbs importers, who have quan

trade shows a little better improvement.
Silks are quiet, but linens are quite active.
A fair business in boots and shoes continues.
The paper trade is active. A alow improve
ment continues in drugs and chemicals.
Recent signs of improvement in iron and
steel have not been sustained. Here and at
Boston Southern No. 1 pigs have been

to iutrodnce their products, the effect on
price of other iron is ielt. At Philadelphia,

THE SITUATION HEBE.
At Philadelphia structural plate, sheet

at Cleveland. Coal is dull; the reported in

and a strike at Pittsburg is expected. Cop

$20 40 for prompt delivery here, and lead is
very much demoralised.
Wheat goes lower yet, having sold at
S2yis, corn has declined , and oats le

lard and hogs' a shade higher; coffee and
sugar are unchanged, but oil is Jc higher.
In general, the course of prices still tends

The future of the market probably de
pends much upon the movements ot money
and the feeling of foreign investors, and for
the moment both favor holders, but bank
ers look upon a considerable outgo of specie
as not improbable, and the policy of Secre
tary Windom, as far as it has been made
known, does not seem likely to cause large
disbursements before July. The .one
favorable feature is th,at merchandise ex

The business failures number 214 for the
week and 213 for last week, and 246 for the
week previous. For the corresponding
week of last year the figures were 234.
A TRUST'S HARD EOW.
Burial Association Boycotted Why a
Funeral Was Postponed. I
Philadelphia, May 3. The $75 suit
that has recently been brought against the
National Trust and Burial Association,
which has its principal office in this city
and a charter from Maine, has developed
some interesting facts in relation -to the
method of procedure of this and kindred or
ganizations. The prospectus of the associa
tion reads like a fairy tale. Not only is a
capital stock of $500,000 advertised glow
ingly, but the fact that a large coffin and
casket manufactory has been established at
Harrisburg is amply impressed upon the
public mind to the end that the
stupendous character of the organiza
tion mar be fully comprehended.
But it might be wise for the public to take
all this with a grain of salt, for at least
three Philadelphia households are up in
arms over broken funeral contracts. One
of them has taken the matter to the courts;
from an official quarter come murmurs as
to unpaid salaries; and as to the mammoth
casket factory, its foundations are yet to be
laid. Instead, the visitor to the associa
tion's business office, on North Eighth
street, may hear issuing from behind ajcrim
son curtain the merry tink-a-tink-tink of a
single workman's hammer as he fashions a
burial casket or rough box, as the associa
tion has need.
Throughout its career of seven short
months the organization has had more than
its share of sorrow. Above all it has to
contend against one very serious obstacle in
the shape of the Undertakers Protective
Association, which includes nearly every
furnisher of funeral supplies in the entire
country. The adherents of this organiza
tion place an inviolable boycott on all out
siders, so that wnen tne urinal Association
people have endeavored to purchase sup
plies at the regular establishments they
have been completely sat upon. Their only
recourse was to order their goods from
Maine and Michigan, or some remote lo
cality where the boycott was less stringently
One of their contract holders, a colored
woman by the name of Mrs. Josephine Gib
son, took it Into her head to die at an inop
portune moment Several weeks before her
death she had joined the association and
provided for a $75 burial, for which she or
her heirs were to pay by weekly instal
ments of 25 cents, the association agreeing
to perform the undertaker's duties from A
to Z for that amount
Mrs. Gibson's funeral was announced for
Friday at 1 P. M., but Friday morning came
and as yet no coffin nor shroud had been
provided. The mourners began to congre
gate, bnt no undertaker appeared. Almost
frantic the sorrowful husband hastened
forth in search of the belated coffin. When
at last he found the association's undertaker
that official calmly announced that as he
was unable to obtain the necessary "hard
ware" he feared the burial would have to
be postponed. The regular supply dealers
stoutly refused to sell, and though the
coffin-box was completed, it was useless with
out handles and "fixings." In vain were
the dealers importuned. They were still
inexorable, and the burial had to be put off.
But on Saturday Gibson grew desperate.
He did not propose to convert his. house
into a mausoleum, and moreover the ice bill
was mounting up enormously. Accordingly
he informed the undertaker that the burial
must either take place on Sunday or suit
would be brought Thus goaded the under
taker made a special effort to bribe a regular
undertaker into a sale of hardware, and by
SORE FROM KNEE TO ANKLE.
Skin entirely gone. Flesh a mass of disease.
Leg diminished one-third In size. Condi
tion hopeless. Cured by the Ctiticura
Remedies in two months, Not a sign of
disease now to be seen,
For three years I was almost crippled with
an awful sore leg from my knee down to my
ankle; the kln was entirely gone, and the flesh
was one mass of disease. Some physicians nro
nouueed it incurable. It had diminished about
one-third the size of the other, and I waB in a
hopeless condition. After trying all kinds of
remedies and spending hundreds of dollars,
from whica I got no relief whatever, I was per
suaded to try yonr CrmctraA Remedies, and
the result was as follows; After three days I
noticed a decided change for tbe better, and at
the end of two months I was completely cured.
My flesh was purified, and the bone (which had
been exposed for over a year) got sound. The
flesh began to grow, and to-day, ana for nearly
two years oast, my leg Is as well as ever it was,
sound in every respect, and not a sign of the
disease to be seen. S. G. AHSRN.

Denver, Col., May 3 At 3 o'clock this
