WEEKLY REVIEW OF
Condition of (he Markets as Told in
Dun's Weekly Review of Trade and
Measured by every important test
tbe volumn of business is larger than
at the corresponding period last year,
and it is gradually expanding, the re
ports from the leading trade centers
during the week being especially .
cheerful. There Is apparently no de
cisive change in basic conditions, and
the increased activity recently shown
is due to the fact that shelves are
practically empty, and the immediate
needs of a growing population, even on
a more economical basis, are presshm
for supply. Tims, witli little or no
speculative anticipation of the future,
a volume of business is being trans
acted, which, although below full pro
dltCtive capacity, is nevertheless large.
This appearance of Increased activity
is particularly shown in the dry goods
H ades, in most of tin brain lies of
which, and particularly in cottons, a
brisker movement is reported, and
more mills are resinning production.
Woolens are also in fair demand and
the clothing, millinery and other kin
tied branches appear to he doing well.
An Increasing activity is also report
ed in shoes and the sales of leather
make up a respectable total. The lat
est government crop reports indicated
sonn; Improvement in both wheat and
corn and, while the yield of both will
be less than anticipated earlier in the
year, supplies will he ample, while the
excellent cotton crop has shown a re
markably early development. Export
trade continues of large proportions,
the volume of foreign commerce at
New York during the latest week
amounted to $32,904,132 against $30.
074,541 in 1910 and $28,446,962 in 1909.
The exports were $17,148,165, being
$1,392,198 in excess of the imports.
The resumption of operations by
some large cotton mills Indicates a
more encouraging mill position. Pric
es on cotton goods and Other mer
chandise are close. AC A ticks. 8-oz,
have been reduced 1 cent per yard:
southern denims, 9-OZ, ]-cent. and
eastern, 9-OZ. denims are held at lCVi
cents. At the lower prices there is
more disposition shown bv retailers
to operate. Some fair-si'e 1 orders
have been placed for host and belting
duck and staple prints are being or
dered freely by western jobbers. There
is a steady business in napped cottons
and retailers display more disposi
tion to order wash ?oods sind cotton
dress fabrics for spring delivery. Ex
port trade is slightly less active, but
continues well ahead of bist year,
and as the market for raw material
declines, a tendency to expand pro
duction is noted. The demand for
double-faced frabrlcs in dress goods
and men's wear continues a note
worthy feature In woolen goods, and
activity is shown in the demand for
The grain markets are steady: the
slight Improvement indicated in the
condition of wheat by the final gov
ernment report was anticipated, and
while the yield is estimated as slight
ly below last year's, in both winter
and spring wheat, supplies will he am
ple. Stocks are constantly increas
ing. Western receipts this week are
6,479.781 bushels against 6,999,076 a
year ago. and exports from all ports
of the United States, Cow included,
are 2,094,892 bushels compared with
2,024,848 In 1910. Corn conditions al
so Improved last month, hut the yield
will be somewhat less than in 1910.
Receipts at western centers this week
are 2,629,338 bushels compared with
2,666,175 a year ago, whlh Atlantic
coast exports were only 334,377 bush
els against 369,443 in 1910. The cot
ton markets are quiet. Spot prices
declined further below 10 cents. Port
receipts continued largei and txports
Drj (loads ami \\ dolens.
Trading in cotton goods continues
steady, although in moderate volume.
The jobbing trades are now buying
heavy cottons, both brown and color
ed, more freely, and the adjustment
of the market to the new low level of
cotton is making satisfactory head
way. During the week ACA ticks. 8-OZ
were reduced from \2 ',?>(? to lL'^.c a
yard, and P-oz southern denims were
redheed from IZf?c to l8c. Eastern
9-OZ denims are held at HD/jc. There
have been some fair-sized advance or
ders placed for hose and belting duck,
but buyers are not inclined to hurry
forward business on wide duck as yet.
Prlntclolhs rule generally easy, with
moderate trading reported on some of
the narrow and wide staples. Export
trade Is quieter, but shipments are
well ahead of the corresponding peri
od of a year ago. Staple prints are
being ordered with considerable free
dom by some jobbers In the West and
South, and the resumption of opera
tions on the part of the Fall River
Iron Works mills, feeders for the
American Printing Company, was a
feature of encouragement. As the cot
ton market declines there is a strong
er- disposition shown to Increase pro
duction, as manufacturers lind the de
mand at lower prices has broadened
sufficiently to wan ant them in mak
Ing preparations for steadier running.
Retailers are doing a steady business
on napped cottons and this is beihg
reflected in demands upon primary fac
tors that are not readily handled in the
limited time allowed. There Is a!so>
noted more disposition on the part of
retailers to order wash goods and cot
ton dress fabrics for spring delivery,
showing a steady growth of confidence
In the future of business, which was
more or less lacking a few weeks ago.
Cotton and Worsted Yards.
Business in cotton yarns during the
week was restricted to nearby or Im
mediate requirements. Values showed
a tendency to sag on account of the
weakness displayed by the raw ma
terial market. Worsted yarns are in
fair request, spinners using the French
system, There is still a wide differ
ence In the quotations named. The
market is Irregulnr.
The Cotton Market.
Further declines this week brought
new low record prices for cotton on
this movement. October options at one
period touching 9.40 as against 14.40
?it the corresponding time a year ago.
Although reports of excessive rains
throughout the belt were revolved tell
ing of serious damage to the crop and
hindrance to picking, they reccivod <
little more than casual attention, for
while they induced a covering move
ment of some dimensions on the part
Of the shorts and brought about some
apparent strength, the upward move
ment was not maintained. It was
pointed out that any damage that
might have occurred from these con
ditions was more than offset by the al
most ideal weather prevailing during
the past four 01 five weeks, as reflect
ed in the unprecedentedly large
amount of cotton that has been pic k
ed and harvested up to this date. While
it is now generally conceded that this ;
vein's crop will be far In excess of
any previous record, there is a grow
ing disposition on the part of the trade
to regard present prices, which are
about $2fi per bale below those ruling
at this time a year ago, its fully dis
counting any conditions likely to de
press prices to a much greater extent.
Those who favor higher values say
that while receipts are undoubtedly
heavy, indications are now appearing
that there will be some falling off in
this respect, ano thn the increasing
disposition en the part of the southern
planter to hold his cut ton is hound to
have more or less effect. Moreover
conditions in the cotton industry are
improving and it is expectojl than an
Increased demand from tho manufac
turers will soon exert a favorable in
fluence. That some consideration was
given to these arguments was reflect
ed in heavy purchases by several
prominent interests, and late in the
week there was more development of
strength, which, while not very pro
nounced, appeared to Indicate the ex
istence of considerably more conn- 1
dence than has been noted for some
time past.?Dun's Review.
