The Rcncral business eUuntlon Is nil thn

pprlng season' la some distance off unit retailers
tailors nro not thus far doing much buslnts
for spring account. At the same time It 1
too Into to expect much demand for wlrvtc

weather , there was nevertheless a very ful
cpiisiinilng demand , and the total velum
of business for the > week was of very satis
factory proportions , Money seems to b
gradually growing easier and the who !
nltiKi.tlon as regards the local retail trad
Is steadily changing for the "better , ait-r
clmnls without exception ppcak In a mos
norwruli tone and every one seems to b
thoroughly convinced that Omaha Is enter

long Hum nlncc a jobber of Omahu 1ms beet
heard to report anything but a satisfactory
business So far ns can be judged from
observation nntl from the reports of loading
representatives of the trade there Is nothlm
In itho nature of a boom , ( but just a gooi
Jrtemly btifliicJS doing , which Is entirely sat
iKfjctory to nil parties concerned. The vol
lime of orders coming to hand from the
country Is not of sulllclent proportions tu
cause a rush , but It Is large enough to keep
every otio busy , and thnt Is all that anyone
ono lian reason to ask for. The condition o
country roads has been something of i
drawback , as the tendency has been for tht
fnrmcru to st-.iy at homo. In ti good mini }
localities It has been Impossible for the farmers
ors to huul their produce to market , owlni ,
to the muddy roads , and for .that . reason the
country retail trade. In certain localities * has
not boun as good as might othcrwlsu 1m vc
been the case.
In the country at large activity In spring
'business ' 'would < 'em to have cominencct
Boniort-hat curlier than usual. According to
the commercial agencies there have boei
very large galas In bank clearings during
the last two weeks In all sections of thu
country and the outlook seems to be ex
cecdlngly bright.
EXI'OIITEIIS WANTED.
The demand that has sprung Into exist
ence for export cattle nt South Omaha dur
ing the last few days Is an encouraging
feature of business at that point. The
country seems to be tinder the Impression
that the best kinds of cattle cannot be
marketed nt South Omaha as 4110 packer ?
arc not prepared to handle very many of
them , and accordingly the custom of send
ing the boat cattle to Chicago and shipping
the moro common grades here has become
very prevalent. As a still further Induce
ment freight rates to the moro distant mar-
Itct nro In some Instances more advan
tageous. Armour & Co. , however , have
taken the matter In hand and have promised
to buy export cattle at this point. During
the last week everything that would dc
for that purpose met with ready sale ami
U Fiitlsfaetcry prices.
The giowth of the sheep market at Soutli
Omaha continues to excite a good deal of
Interest and 4hat department of the mar-
) cct la now ono of thu most Interesting.
The great oheep barn Is one of the sights
nt the yards most attractive to visitors and
during tl.o morning hours Its Interior pre
sents n most animated view.
KLONDIKE CHAZI3 IIIOLPS TUJSINESS.
The discovery of pold In Alaska Is hav
ing quite an Important bearing upon busi
ness In this as well n.s In other localities.
Local factories have received largo orders
for various products to bo uwrt In the far
north and us the spring- season draws
nearer to hand rush orders are anticipated
from various sources.
It Is estimated that last year nt least
10,000 people went Into tnc regions where
Bold had been discovered , and that each of
them on an average , required , on a low
estimate , JTXK ) for transportation and outllt.
Thla would foot up at least f.r > ,000,000 spent
In supplies of various kinds. Everyone
Beems to think that nt least 100,000 pjople
will go to the Klondike this spring. Assum
Ing that each one will require n $500 outfit
It will bo seen at once that the demand for
Btich nuppllcs as may be required for such
nil undei taking will bo something enormous ,
Jn addition largo sums will bo required to
build boats , open new roads and Improve
"ho means of transportation. Taking every
thing Into consideration It has been esti
mated that at least $100,000,000 will bu In
vested between now and early summer In
the search for gold.
Omalm Is already feeling the effects ol
the Impe'us ' K-VCII to trade by the demand
for Klondike goods and manufacturers are
fully alive to the opportunities presented and
more Klondike business ? will doubtless como
this way before the season ends.

IXDNDON' , Feb. 26. There wns etronir Inquiry
during the week In the wool trade , owlne to
short Fupplles of merinos In. the hands of English
manufucturers. A fair quantity was sold above
the last rate * . A disinclination among holders
to sell prevents large business. There wns a
strong demand for sheepskins , and a quantity
was sold. The arrivals to dole for Ihe next
series aggregate 22S.238 bales , of which 30,930
bales were forwarded direct. The quantity for
warded direct shows a marked decrease , nnd
thp amount .available for the series will prob
ably not exceed 220.000 hnlos. The Imports for
the week are as follows : New South Wales. 20 -
i bales ; Melbourne , 11,063 bales ; Queensland ,
i.4R3 bales ; South Australia , 4,650 bales ; West
Australia , 209 bales ; Cape of Good Hope nnd
N'atal , 3,378 bales ; St. Michaels , salvage , 2,329
bales , nnd elsewhere , 1E33 bales. The sale of

CHICAGO. Feb. 26. U was a weak day In
wheat. July at ono time was off IHc ami
Mny 2c. Closing prices showed a cent do-
cllnc In both options. It wns a narrow
market , and the weakness \vns due moro to
lack of support than to the news wlitch ,
however , favored lower prices. Other mar
kets were barely steady nt slight declines ,
corn and oats closing lie lower each ami
provisions declining 2ugi5c , pork being the
weakest thing on the list.
For a few moments utter the start wheat ,
compared with the weakness It developeel
later , wns fairly steady. July started He
lower to lie higher , at from SOlic to SO'ic ,
nnd .May He lower nt $1.03. Lelter's brokers
appeared to have some supporting orders In
July nt the sturl , nnd for Ihls reason
thnt month showed steadiness until May
wi'akened badly. Then July followed. Trad
ing In May was very light. There were u
peed many mores selling orders than the
limited demand could take care of , the
result being a decline to $1.02. A reaction
to $1.02- % followed , then the market broke
again , and worse ) than before. May this
time going to $1.0114. The continued In
creasing production of contract wheat by the
mixers apparently affected May. Forty-
three cars of No. 1 northern were reported
out of private houses today , nnd twenty-two
cars from regular sources. Most of the
routine news favored sellers. World's ship
ments of iT.OOCUW bu. were looked for next
week. Liverpool was from Utl to % d lower ,
and crop reports from California and India ,
especially from the latlcr country , were very
favorable. The day's clearances from At
lantic porta were equal to 322,000 bu. North
west receipts were light at 10D cars , against
212 last week anil 230 a year ago. Chicago
receipts amounted to S3 cars. The weakness
which developed In Mny was soon reflected
In July. There was a good selling out by
people who have been "tailing" on the cnm-
p.ilct. , and who had become discouraged by
tlu recent downward turn to the market ,
and prices. In spite of the Loiter support ,
declined steadily. At SSVic for July the mar
ket hesitated for a time. A period of dull
ness Mid narrow fluctuations set In , but
about half an hour from the close the mar
ket developed fresh weakness under re
newed selling of small lines , July gelling
down lo Sic , nnd May. which had In the
meantime rallied to $1.02 , declined to $1.0114 *
Shortly before ; the close Lelter's brokers
again gave the market some support , this
Urn ? in Mwy. the buying of a line of about
100.000 bu. being sulllclent to cause u rally
In that option to $1.02 ! , which was the
closing price. This rally also Inlluenceel
July t ) n limited extent , stopping the sellIng -
Ing pressure , and starling a. little covering ,
under which the price got back to SSUiff
ESe , where It closed.
Corn wns well held , despite the weakness
of wheat. There wcro plenty of selling or
ders , but offerings were well taken , several
of the larger holders Increasing their lines ,
nnd prices did not drop much. A good cash
demand was a factor In steadying the mar
ket. May ranged from 23&5/29T4C to 23 > S'W6c ,
and closed lie lower at 2/4c. ! ) '
The feeling In corn was reilectod In oats ,
nnd prices suffered but little. Same weak
ness was shown at the opening , but there
were plenty of buying orders nt the slight
decline. Trading ns a whole was limited.
Cash demand wns reported fair. May
ranged from 2C'fce to 2uMj2Gc , and closed
Vic lower at 2Cc.
A large trade was done In provisions.
Soiling , especially of pork , was heavy. The
market at first was well mtpportcd and even
advanced for a time , but the effect of the
heavy liquidation wns ultimately felt. SellIng -
Ing was mostly by commission houses. At
the close May pork was lac lower at $10.3T ;
May lard , 25 lower at $5.17'A and May
ribs , 5c lower at $5.07' .

Doelileil Tone.
NB\V YORK. Feb. 26. The stock market was
llstlera and without decided tone today. The net
changes were trivial In most cases nnd the mar
ket moved p and down within a narrow range.
London buying gave a slight upward Impetus
at the opening , and , then prollt-toklntr by yes
terday's buyers drove prices below last night's
level. The close waa * bovo the lowert , but net
changes were much mixed. The course of prices
waa unsettled anil ccr.illctlng In the llnal dealIngs -
Ings , some Btocka moving upward and others
downward simultaneously and apparently with
out manipulation. The whole of the trading
wns by email room traders , and large operators
wer apparently content to eland by for the
present and watch the v/nirse of things. Some
of the stocks wcro notably firm all day , sucJi
as the Reading and Erlo Issues , Northern Pu-
clflo preferred nnd some of the southern nnd
southwestern roads. Canadian Pacific also ruled
higher. The bank statement was without par
ticular cfffot ns the conditions disclosed had
made themselves felt during the week. The
heavy decrease In loans Indicates liquidation on
the Stock exchange , but probably docs not fully
measure | t , 03 the loans which have been called
have been In part replaced In time loans and
commercial paper.
Prices of standard stocks tire 1 to 6 per cent
lower than a week ago , declines In the FPCCU-
Uative bend Issues arc 1 to 3 per cent lower ,
government bonds are V4 to 3 per cent lower , call
moUy'raten ' have risen from 114 to 3 per cent
and exchange has fallen to the gold Import point ,
with { 2.200,000 engaged for shipment or on pas
sage. This In brief represent * the changes in
the financial situation from last Saturday. Prices
of stocks ore considerably above the low point
of Thursday mornlner , when the downward
plunge took on panic conditions for n time. The
week's drastic liquidation In the stock market
wns 'forced ' by the markingup of call loans ,
Ccmlng on a market poorly supported because
of the threatening outlook of the Cuban ques
tion , and with many orders to pell out long
stocks , these offerings precipitated a decline that
wiped out all margins ami brought a torrent of
stocks on nn nlready weak market. From n
technical standpoint the stiffening of money
rates precipitated the decline , The higher money
rales were In turn due to withdrawals of cur
rency from New York banks for shipment to the
Interior. Competent export authorities differ ns
to whether this movement of money to the In
terior Is to be attributed 1o the preparation for
tliu regular spring settlement , and Is thus to
meet regular business demands , or whether It la
a cautious safeguarding by Interior banks against
A possible * ncel growlni ? out of present complica
tions over Cuba , An agalnBt the latter view It Is
now considered that Interior banks are permitted
uy law to count an In their legal reserves a cer
tain proportion of money In New York Imnks
deslgnute-il as depositories , the same as though
it were In their own vaults. . It Is also true that
there ls an Increasing amount of commercial
paper offering at Interior financial centers , re-
llcctlng a growlnc demand fe > r money for biisl-
ncii ! purposes , and donif nils exchange nt Interior
points hnn Iwen against Neft * York. The Cuban
question was , of course , the direct Incentive ) for
very large offerings of stocks nnd bonds , but
he forced liquidation v/Kf largely nugmentexl by
> ho expanding ures for money In fields either
than speculation. The hardenlnit of money has
been preimptly followed by a fall In exchange
and an Important movement ot gold , the Mock
of exchange available to be thus drawn upon
; > elng estimated ell the lyjiy from $10t 0 , y ) to
( M,000.000. The London BVirktt lias steadily re
fused tn take alarm at tluiiban complications
and has persisted In a&tpfrjfecurllles in fncu
of the violent decline ln il/ufr prices. This buyIng -
Ing has ndded materlall tfKthc docks of ex
change. 1-Iven the ; gold * < Jy > jhent to New York
ia not put a stop to L&Wfei buying of Ameri
can securities , a result KxMCti usually follows
almost Immediately. Larg < ! IKipltallBts anil cor
poral * Interests on the loMeo for bargains are
credited with having large line * In
few York stock , ns In JxjnJon at the
ow prlce reached , . .
Owing to the eharp falPUt . a rise In the
money rate Is naturnllyVMi | Ident with a fall
In government bonds , ait . /ther thing , the

both Kansas City and Chicago combined
and Htlll there were not enough norc to nuke
a market. Of those reported In there were
sonic thai were not on sale so that the
offerings were extremely light.
Ileef Steers Tlio few loads of fat catllc
met with renely sale nt nominally steady
prices and the pens were cleared nnd the
yards deserted nt nn early hour. No choice
cattle wcro offered so that there * , was noth
ing to put a top on the market , but as high
as JI.40 was paid for some heavy cattle
rather on the conrslsh order and $1.45 for
lighter weights.
Hutchors' Stock Only about a half dozen
loads of cows and helfors were offered for
sale and thay soon found their way Into
the hands of local killers. The prices paid
did not show any material change as com
pared with yesterday's record.
Stock Cattle As usual on a Saturday the
volume of buslne'Ss doing In the feeder
division wns very limited. There was not
much demand and few caltlo on sale so
that the trade was devoid of any Interest
ing features.
The Week The week opened under quite
favorable conditions as regards the market
on beet cattle. In fact so favorable that
values were In most cases 60100 higher than
the close of the previous week. The ad
vantage of sellers , however , proved to bo
only temporary and on Tuesday , when the
arrivals were larger a shading of values
occurred , especially In case of the common
and medium grades. Still larger receipts
anel most unfavorable advices from other
selling points occasioned still further sin Ink-
age In values on Wedneselay , whlcb proved
to be the low day of the week. On Thurs
day nnd Friday values reacted and the
week closed with values fully ns good ns
at the opening and a little better than at the
close of the previous week.
An export demand has sprung Into ex
istence during the past week and Armour
has a buyer hero who has been given liberal
orders. Unfortunately the kind of cattle
wanted have been scarce. A very con
siderable proportion of the receipts at this
point Is made up of half fat steers , many
of them so wanting In Ilnlsh that the feed
ers are buying them to be taken back Into
the country to bo again placed on feed.
Only well finished cattle are wanted for
export and such ns were to be had met
with ready sale the past week at current
prices.
Tno country bought quite freely of stock
cattle and feeders. The supply of feeders
consisted almost entirely of warmed up
cattle that were shipped In for beeves , and
though the Influence of the break In beeves
was felt In easier prices for such the
country was a good buyer nil Ihe week.
Stock catties weighing GOO to COO pounds are
In the best demand and good cattle of
such weights meet with ready takers ut
seemingly very slrongprices. . As high as
$4.SO was paid for some near Ihe close of the
week , which will give un Idea of the
strength of the market. Heprcscnlatlve
