NEW TORX, March 4.
The Dally Bulletin says: While the volume or j
business does not greatly improve, and the tone
of the general marker, ls still rather slow, evi?
dences or a little better reeling are being devel?
oped, and dealers commence to talk somewhat
hopefully.' The probabilities that the tariff may
not be altered at all, and the almost c rtalnty
that ir any change ls made it will not take effect
until the first or Joly, gives buyers more confi?
dence to operate ror known wants, and a break?
ing np or the previous entire stagnation in busi?
ness ls looked ror. Not that any very large quan ?
titles will be handled, but knowing where they
can distribute, jobbers will purchase to the ex?
tent or the outlet ror a few weeks, and have no
rea's or a sndden redaction in the value or duty
paid goods. Already have bids been made on
several invoices in first bands, but as prices are
still more or less unsettled, no actual business
bas resulted, and the market closes to-day quietly
on all grades. From second hands there has also
been very little going out, bnt samples have at?
tracted more alien?lon, and some busine-s is an?
ticipated with the opening or the week. We quote
