THE OUTLOOK IN IRON BRIGHT.
FeTtrish Speculation in Cotton Is the Worst
TOEEIGX TRAFFIC NOT SATISFACTORY
Kew TOKk, Oct 7. K. G. Dun & Ca,
In their weekly review of trade, say: The
first week of October shows more activity,
in spite of the near approach ot the Presi
dental election. Business is distinctly bet
ter at the South on account of the improve
ment in the price of cotton, more active at
the West with improved crop prospects and
only lightly retarded at the East. The
expected reaction from the extreme low
price of ootton helps business at the South.
In general, speculation has disturbed legiti
mate trade much less during the past quar
ter than is usual at this season, although
the transactions in cotton have been ex
At Pittsburg manufactured iron is quite
active and in large demand at well sup
ported prices, while business in glass is
fair; but a strike of coal miners embarrasses
the Monongahela trade.
An Encouraging Iron Outlook.
The iron industry is doing welL Xot
withstandinj the resumption of work by
many establishments which were idle a
long time on account of strikes, the con
sumption of pig iron apparently exceeds
the production, and the demand gives a de
cidedly stiffer tone to the market Bar
iron is still disappointing, and rails are
very dull, but the demand for structural

Perhaps the textile industries were never
more prosperous than they are now, lor

the works are crowded with orders. Rub
ber goods works are busy.
It is not a satisfactory symptom that the
speculation in cotton is enormous, sales at
this city amounting to 1,239,600 bales last
week, with an advance ot a cent in price.
Exports of cotton are not large, and of all
domestic products the value exported last
week was only 5,853,452, against f9.768.9S9
last year. Considering the great increase
in imports ot merchandise the state of Jor
eign trade is hardly encouraging.
i3usiness failures occurring throughout
the country during the past seven days
number 220, compared with 208 last week.
For the corresponding week of last year
the figures were 270.
The "Week In Wall Street.
Eradstrect'i says; Speculative attention
during the past week has been mainly ab
sorbed by special movements, such as that
in the stock of the New York and New
England Railroad. The general tendency
of prices has taken, on the whole, an up
ward direction, and if the market has lacked
spontaneity it has certainly exhibited a
widening'tendencv, which, iu the opinion
of the street at large, should lead to better
and more activs conditions in the near
The controlling feature of the situation
seems to be that the influences which have
restricted speculation and depressed prices
are passing away. Some attention is paid
to the nrnier tendency ot" money, but it is
remarked that no tangible evidence is yet
forthcoming of any squeeze in rates which
should aflect prices. " On the other hand,
the fear of gold exports, which has weighed
so heaulv upon speculative activity, is now
practically out of the way, and thequestion
is openly discussed whether within a com
parativelr short period a return flow of
specie will not set in from Europe to this
The lact that the corn crop ib now out of
danger, and that current reports point to a
much larger aggregate yield than tins been
hitherto indicated, has also some influence,
while it is believed that Western railroads,
together with their trunk line connections,
are enjoying a traffic the volume ot which
compares favorably even with the excep
tional freight movement of last autumu.
