New York, April 5. Dun's weekly re view of trade tomorrow will say: While the general business world has looked with amazement at the performance of the stock market, trade has maintained its even course, and there are many that points of gain than of loss with even a slightly steadier tone in the dry goods market. Some sellers have withdrawn offers at recent low prices though buying Is small as yet. Collections in all lines are unusually prompt, and in the build ing trades contracts have been entered into sufficient to furnish a decided im petus in all lies during the spring sea son. No sign of lessening demand is percepti ble in any branch of the iron and steel industry. Mills are accepting contracts for the closing months of the year and there Is every indication that 1901 will surpass all records In the quantity of pig iron consumed by manufacturers. Though the capacity has been wonderfully en larged during the past five months, there are still many extensions and new plants contemplated. It is also probable that the customary summer repairs of fur naces and mios will be acocmplished within a shorter period than usual, as contracts call for heavy deliveries right throuo'i the season. Permanence of pros perity ln this industry is becoming more certain as there is les sevldence of in flated prices. Regular quotations have not altered, except for bars and foundry iron, although all sorts of premiums are paid where prompt shipment is required. Although fewer ovens are active in the Connellsville region than a year ago, the output Is much larger, and about 3,000,000 tons were made during tne quarter. Shipments of boots an- shoes from Bos ton are steadily increasing, the last week's movements reaching 94,453 cases against 92,975 in the previous week and 89,034 a year ago. Quotations are steady, but It is feared recent declines In leather and hides wll Imake it possible for tho small shoe manufacturers to cut prices when they are compelled to seek new business. An unexpected demand has ap peared for russet shoes, equalling last year's busines, despite the fact that these lines were considered less popular. The circular of Coates Bros, on April 1, made the average of 100 grades of wool 17.99 cents, a decline of nearly a cent since March 1, and 5 1-2 cents compared with April, 1S00. During the past two weeks, however, the market has steadied and there is much more trading. Moder ate buying is done by worsted mills. After declining within 1-16 of 4 cents It was not surprising to see cotton recover half a cent. The oversold condition of the speculative market was chiefly re sponsible an dsouthern dispatches gave support by statements of unfavorable planting conditions. Supplies were against any pronounced rise in price, however, and continued extremely de pressive. Asressive manipulation of corn forced prices to an unreasonable point, from which the fall was severe; and wheat also weakened, although exports from the Atlantic coast continued liberal. Port products did not show the usual sympathy with corn when it reacted, for Chicago operators absorbed offerings readily. Commercial failures in the first quarter of 1901 were 3,335 in nmber and J31,703,4S6 in amount of defaulted liabilities, of which 710 were in manufacturing for $13, 504.222, and 2.4SS in trading for $14,562,906 with 157 others, not properly included in either class, that owed $4,646,358. Banking defaults numbered 21 with liabilities of SS.441.3S9. While exceeding the same three months of last year In number fail ures were much smaller in amount, com mercial and financial insolvencies togeth er showing a decrease of $21,632,180. Only two years of the last twenty made a bet ter showing either ln aggregate or aver age Indebtedness to each failure, while the proportion of $26.74 to each firm ln business and $1.09 to each $1,000 of sol vent payments through clearing houses are records tnat were surpassed but once ln two decades. For the month 01 March total liabilities were much smaller than in the corresponding month of any year since monthly statements were first pub lished. These figures indicate most un deniably that the new century has open ed with business on no uncertain founda tion. JBradntrectVt Financial Jtevievr, New York, April 15. Bradstreet's finan cial review tomorrow will say: "Although the closing of the stock ex change for both good Friday and today nas reduced the business week ln Wall Street to four days. It will rank as one of the most exciting periods in the his tory of the stock market. Enormous deal ings in securities with a speculative spirit which seemed running to extremes, were tho rale throughout. The presence of the public as buyers of securities was on a larger scale than for yars past, but. on the other hand, the manipulation was of a most open kind, and was conducted with a degree of skill that has never been equalled. Heavy realizing sales were wit nessed both ln the United States Steel stocks, which were the leading future of the market, and of the prominent railroad shares. At the same time, the buj mg demand seemed to absorb u.e heavy of ferings, and any favorable rumors were accepted with avidity and served to keep up the advances. Not until Thursday, when the holiday 'indued realizing by the professions and when a rise In the rate for call loans to 6 per cent seem ed to indicate that the money market slbtewas unable to support the exaggerat ed speculation any further was there a seaslbta check to the bullish movement. The otttpoor of stocks on that day was on the largest possible scale and prices yielded all aronnd In spite of the con fident acedlctione aht next week wii wit ness a reawroal of the same coTditions in the market. The market seined to b passing through on of tb?e periods of speculative excitement hn facts ar disregarded. At the same time, it rnjst u noted that a good deal of attest. -n was given to circumstance like the fa vorable crop outlook and the continue.! Increase tn railroad earniacs. as well as to the advantageo'-s pos'Uon of the iro and other industries cf the count rv Monev market conditions akw were rat v.fregrded and the action of the ec-rta-'. of the trfas'try in deciding to pur ch 1 nJ.s r the s, iking fund was considered as offsetting the effect of the current gold shipments, -he treasury purchases of bonds amounted to nearly $3,000,000 and the disbursements on that account reduced the drain on the banks for account of the treasury to an Insig nificant sum. The Importance of this in the eyes of the speculative community resides in the fact that It is generally admitted that a large amount of gold will have to go to Europe during the present spring on account of the German and other government loans which are being brought out. DRY GOODS MARKET. New York, Apnl 5. The quietness of the dry goods market is unbroken today. In brown sheetings and drills some buy ing is light, with one or two transactions for export in 3.25 yard sheetings. No change In prices or ln demand for bleached cottons. Coarse colored cot tons dull and irregular. Print cloths quiet, but more inquiry for wide gods. Prints quiet, with some trading. Good sales 01 staple ginghams at concessions. Linens quiet, but prices firm. Burlaps unchanged. RufHANN HAMPTON Something About the Life of a "Vener able W irhita Woman.

Her visits are always helpfuL On the evening of inarch IS we were favored by a lecture by Hon. Eugene Ware of Topeka. The corps would be pleased at any time to be favored by a visit from Mr. Ware. The lecture was free and open to the public Owing to the very stormy night the audience was not so large as It otherwise would have been. On April 30 Prof. Blackmor of the State University will lecture to us. This will close the series of general meetings for the year. By the conEent and advice of the com mittee on the Normal school. I have se cured Professor Chrisman of the State Normal to deliver the annual address at the City Normal school commencement. The universal favor which Dr. Chrisman met when he lectured before the corps eary in tho year adds to our gratification in being able to secure him for this event of commencement week The public entertainment by the High School Glee club was a pronounced suc cess, both in order of merit and financial returns. The gymnasium fund is aug mented thereby by $75 It Is hoped that the public entertain ment on tho 12th by the High School Cho ruses will bo accorded even more liberal patronage. The Carleton school entertainment for their piano fund was a marked success in every respect. By this effort the school is able to enjoy the piano during the school year.
