Whole World Amazed at
Performance of Stocks,
Boot and Shoe Shipments
Steadily Increasing.
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 Some sellers have withdrawn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
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.

of her Master in that she bore constantly
the fruits of righteousness and sought
to minister to all who needed help. It
