Continues to Advnnco
on rt Substnntlul Unsis.
Kew York, Sept. 10. It. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade In Its Issue
tomorrow will say:
There is no hnltlne in the advance.
Business grows better In nil ways, for
while Its speculative end breaks con
spicuous gamblers for a decline, a
steady Increase in production, in work
ing force and in the power of the peo
ple to purchase, Is the feature which
overshadows all others. Beports of
Kew York trade unions show an in
crease since one year ago of 34 per
cent. In the number of men at work,
and a similar increase among men m
like position throughout the country
would exceed 340,000, while every week
pads many establishments to the ac
tive list. The coal miners' strike has
disclosed such facts, and brought to
light such differences, that work will
probably very soon resume by a large
share of the men. The farmers are
helped by higher prices for wheat, and
while western receipts do not show that
they have marketed a tenth of their
crop, assurance of handsome profits to
come prepares them' to buy liberally
hereafter. Because of this and the in
crease of hands nt work, dealers
throughout the country have started
to replenish stocks, which is the great
force at present operating manufac
tures and trade, though distribution by
retail trade has greatly Increased.
A gain of 12 per cent. In one month
in the output of pig iron, from 165,378
tons Aug. 1 to ISo.BOG Sept. 1, with
knowledge that half a dozen other fur
naces are preparing to resume, nnd
that unsold stocks have been reduced
14,400 tons weekly In August, indicat
ing a consumption of about 190,000 tons
more than explains the moderate nd
vance in prices of finished products,
averaging but six per cent, since tho
lowest. point, Aug. 12.
DEMAKD FOU WHEAT.
Wheat has risen five cents the past
v eek, not in a Hurry, but In nnswer to
the dally Increasing foreign demand.
Though reports of the crop now almost
wholly out of danger indicate a yield
nevei surpassed but once, foreign ac
counts still strengthen the belief that
the deficiency abroad will be about
100,000,000 bushels more than usual and
meanwhile reports indicate that less
corn than was expected will bo avail
able for export. Its nr'co has risen
about of a cent. While wheat re
ceipts at Chicago have been break
ing records, receipts at all western
ports aro for the week a little below
last year's, but Atlantic exports, 9,778,
138 bushels, Hour Included, against 4,
70,755 last year for two weeks, with
1,579.771 bushels corn, against 3,570,
701 list year, Indicate a foreign de
fard apparently limited at present
only by ship room.
Slnoo the small corner in August, cot
ton has relapsed to 1' cents, no tu
mors affecting prices much. Korthern
mills are consuming very largely, with
a continuing demand for goods, which
has advanced the prices of many.
With enormous speculative sales of
vool, which appear to constitute most
cf the market at Huston, there Is also
more buying there nnd elsewhere by
the woolen mills, which are enjoying
an extraordinary demand for tr.iods at
prices averaging not ten per cent, high
er than were paid early in the year.
The average advance for the week In
?curlties has been $1,12 per shore for
'allroads and 79 ccms for trusts.

Liabilities ol tho Firm Much Larger
Tlinn Wns nt First Supposed.
Kew York, Sept. 10. Reports were
current in Wall street that the liabi
lities of J. R. Wlllard & Co., the brok
ers, are much larger than was at first
supposed. It was learned, from what
seems to be a reliable source that one
client of the firm, a man who Is weal
thy nnd well known In tho city, lost
about $300,000. This man has placed
his claim In the hands of his lawyers,
who are now taking steps to protect
his Interest. It Is Intimated that they
may Institute criminal proceedings.
A telegram from Chicago to a Wall
street concern today stated that J. II.
Wlllard says that the capital of the
firm was supplied by the Dwlgglns
brothers, and that he was guaranteed
a salary for the use of his name, but
had no other Interest in the business.
J. R. Wlllard was suspended from
consolidated exchange today.
James L. Starbuck, the assignee, de
clined to see either the creditors or
other callers. He sent out word that
he had no information to give, as ho
had not yet succeeded In getting tho
books of the firm in such shape ns
to know the condition of affairs.

Foreign Rumors Cnusn Fluctuations
'Flint Stimulate Speculation.
Chicago, Sept. 10. September wheat
sold at a dollar today. December came
within of that figure at one time, but
declined before the close to 9S, an ad
vance of c. since yesterday. Septem
ber closed at 98, strong foreign mar
kets, seaboard engagements and ru
mors of a reduction In the French
wheat tariff, were the bullish features,
tho reaction being caused by realizing
Wheat was In good demand at tho
start, about ',4c. Improvement only as
closing prices for December and one
cent for September. For a surprising
defunct deal, September exhibited a
surprising degree of activity nnd
climbed up to $1 within a moment or
two of the opening, when the price was
99. December was decidedly erratic.
From 98 to 9S to begin with, it rose
to 9S54, turned around and went back
again to 98. Then it dropped to 97
nnd rose from that In a gradual way
to 97. From the latter point to 99
was the work of about twenty minutes
and those fluctuations were nil within
the first two hours of tho session.
The rally wns caused primarily by
an advance of 1 2-3 cent in the price nt
Liverpool nt the opening.
New York, Sept. 10. Wheat pursued
an erratic course today, finally wind
ing up nt ac. net uecllne. There
were two periods of decided strength
during which December touched $1.03,
or within 1 of the highest point of the
year. The first occurred at the opening
and was based on foreign buying, to
gether with a firmer set of cables. On
a subsequent sharp decllno local trad
ers accumulated a good-sized short In
terest, which was, later run in by a
rumor that the French duty was about
to be reduced. Following this riso was
Hull of n Hark Located Which Caused
n Deep ScnTrngcdv.
Victoria, B. C, Sept. 10. By the
wrecking operations of tho Whltelaw
another mystery of the ocean has to
all appearances been solved by the dis
covery, off the coast of Vancouver Is
land, of the hull of a bark which in all
probability ran into and sent to the
bottom the steamship Pacific, with
all but three of three hundred and odd
persons on board In a dark night In
the later part of 1875, a short distance
below Cape Flattery.
Ko trace of the crew or any evidence
on which to base a theory as .to tho
identity of the unfortunate craft was
ever discovered until today, when Cap
tain Whltelaw, with his salvage out
fit from SanFrancIsco, Cal., In seek
ing to locate another wreck In that
neighborhood, discovered the complete
hull of what Is now supposed to be
the bark which caused the loss of the
Pacific. The vessel's name has been
made out as the Osprey, and the bows
give evidence of having been in a col
lision. THE MARKETS.
Wnll Street Review.
New York, Sept. 10. Today's market
was strong almost without variation but
in an Irregular degrco In different parts
of tho list. Realizing sales nt one time,

below last night's close, tho extreme not
decllno being shown by Louisville, ; New

tho best before the close. Tho net gains
