HOLIDAYJRADE. J)nn & Co. and Bra Istreet's Both Ileport Large Business. The South Especially Shows Increased Activity. COTTOX TRADE DULL. Increased Demand for Iron and Its Products. Business Failures Equal the Same Week of 1896. New Tork, Dec. 2u. R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: The weekly reports show a remarka bly large holiday trade at many points, the largest for five years. Moreover, at the season when wholesale business usually shrinks, the pressure of de mands for immediate deliveries, which results from unprecedented distribution to consumers, keeps many establish ments at work that usually beg-in their yearly rest spell somewhat earlier. In stead of decreasing-, the demand from products shows an unexpected increase in several important branches. For eign trade continues satisfactory, even in comoarison with the remarkable record of a year ago, when exports ex ceeded $117."t.0OO in December. Bank failures at Philadelphia, due to individ ual operations, cause no disturbance, end commercial failures for the month have been less than half last year's to the same date. The outgoing of local grain is not checked by Chicago speculation, though more corn than wheat has been mov ing. Wheat exports, flour included, have been 3,89!.:21 bushels for the week, against 3,f,6S.S05 bushels the previous week, and 1.546,443 bushels a year &?o, and in four weeks 15, : 66, M3 bushels, against 9.0:!i,5S7 bushels last year. while corn exports- for the week 4,o40,Si;S bushels, against 1.751,740 last year, have been in fnir weeks 14.420,131 bushels, against 8.176.073 last year. Last year's corn movement was by far the greatest ever known, and the wheat movement for the half year nearly ended, has been close to the maximum reached in 1?91. Wheat has varied little, closing 3 cents higher for the week, after deliv eries of surprising magnitude at Chi cago, and corn closes nesirly a cent higher. Cotton has also been moving largely and has risen a sixteenth. Cotton goods have further declined in prices of bleached, which meet active southern competition, and the Fall Kiver spinners insist upon a reduction of one-ninth in wages. other New Kngland mills joining. Out of 101 New England works 45 have passed divi dends, 14 at Fall River, with 15 others, paving 1 per cent for last quarter. The fall in the price of cotton when mills w e:-o holding heavy stocks of goods, placed the industry in a most embar rassing position. Woolen mills have begun "buying domestic wool heavily, especially Montana and territory, as if assured of large business for the sea son to open. Contracts of unknown magnitude have been made, it is said, many at previous prices, but others at a moderate advance. Wool is more firm, traders having disposed of 3.300.0' H) pounds territory and 5,500.000 pounds other domestic at Boston, and sales at three cities reached 7.S09.100 pounds. There is a stronger demand for iron and its products, bessemer rising to $10 and grey forge to ?9 at Pittsburg, and the eastern bar association has ad vanced the price to 1.01 cent for refined and 1.02T2 f-,r common. Owing to tha possible changes in freight rates. south ern pig is offered 25 cents lower. A striking feature is the unusual demand for the season in building cars, of which 4,0-50 have been ordered at Chi cago bv one trunk line, and rails there have advanced to $20 in new business, with sales here of 8.000 tons for home use and 2,000 for Mexico. Building con tracts in unusual number for the sea eon come up; also contracts for Three drainage canals at Chicago. The Illi nois Steel Works have eight months' business booked, with more orders of fering. Pipe is dull and weak, but reis are quite active and Diners nae ad vanced about 50 cents. The output of Connelsville coke, 153.121 tons, is the largest for any week this year and contracts to supply a Mahoning furnace at $1 60 for half next year have been made. Anthracite coal is 10 cents stronger with colder weather. Tin is slightly weaker owing to large shipments. Failures for the week have been 29 In the Fnited States, against 297 last year and 23 in Canada against 44 last 5 earpR PSTREKT'? RKPORT. New Yoi-k.Dec.25. Bradstreet's says: Quietness in wholesale lines, but pro nounced and notable activity in retail trade, have been the salient features in this week's trade situation. Price changes, which are numerous. are large ly in an upward direction, and the year draws to a close with results as a whole fullv equalling and in many in stances surpassing early expectations.

(iumuhxeys' Medicine Company, Xew York. Perhaps the most notable feature has been the unanimity with which the trade reports from all parts of -the country, with some few exceptions, point to a very heavy holiday trade, in nearly all cases comparing favorably with recent preceding years. Reports are that stocks of these goods have been heavily reduced. Par ticularly prominent in reporting a good retail trade in the west are Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. At the south, New Orleans reports retailers reaping a harvest and December trade larger than usual. Similarly good reports come from Nashville, Savannah and Memphis, but collections and business would be larger were it not for the low price of cotton. In the northwest cold er weather has improved the demand for seasonable goods, and this, com bined with the usual holiday business has resulted in a good trade, with es pecially good reports from Milwaukee, St. Paul and Omaha. At the east sea sonable conditions prevail, wholesale trade being quiet and holiday business active. No improvement is noted in the cotton goods situation and wage re duction seem imminent. Good business has been done in boots and shoes and shipments are far ahead of last year. Pacific coast retail trade is active and Klondike boomers are gathering in the cities of Washington and Oregon. Proof that the unsettled condition of the wheat situation affects the export bus iness in that cereal is furnished by the figures of shipments this week from both coasts of the United States and Canada. The total exports reported to Bradstreet's aggregate (flour as wheat) 4,757,595 bushels, as against 4,604,000 bushels last week and 6.266.000 bushels two weeks ago. They also compare with exports of 2.111,000 bushels in this week last vear: 3.475.000 bushels in 1895, and 1.814,000 bushels in 1S94. Indian corn exports for the week are 4.S79.011 bushels, against 4.129.878 bush els last week. 2.468.000 bushels a. week ago, and 1.S39.000 in 1895. Commercial features in the United States remain about normal. The total for this week amounts to 280, as com pared with 2s3 in the previous week. but is smaller than the total in 1895. when 316 were reported. There are 30 busi ness failures reported in the Dominion this week, against 43 last week. WANT ABSOLUTE POWER. Railroad Commissioners Would Fix Bates and Enforce Them. The state board of railroad commis sioners can no longer be said to be ad vocating a maximum freight rate law as was proposed by the last legisla ture. In the annual report which was transmitted to the governor today the commissioners endorse the idea of the passage of a law which gives the board of commissioners absolute power to fix rates. The members of the board make a recommendation for new legislation along this line. The board also recommends that the commissioners be empowered by law to classify the freight shipped by Kansas railroads; to fix a maximum schedule of rates for the transportation of the same and to classify the railroads ac cording to their gross earnings. The law which the commissioners propose, the board suggests, should be surrounded by such restrictions as to prevent its abuse by arbitrary action on the part of the board and they ask that such a law be passed and so framed that when the commissioners make rates there can be no question about their enforcement. RETALIATORY TARIFF. Argentine Provides for Increase of SO Per Cent. New York, Dec. 25. A special to the Herald from Buenos Ayres says: The chamber of deputies has adopted a bill authorizing the government to increase on imports from any country when necessary as a measure of pro tection to the interests of their country. This' bill ernbodies the principal fea tures of the retaliatory tariff against the United States which was defeated a few days ago, giving as it does the right to the president to increase du ties at will. The maximum increase provided for in this new measure is 50 per cent on the ordinary tariff and 15 per cent on goods now on the free list. The duty on agricultural machines and imple ments was not altered by the chamber. How to Prevent Pneumonia.

STARTED FACTORIES And Stopped Importations of Foreign Made Goods. Produces Enough Gold to Pay Interest on ller Debt. Denver, Dec. 25. T. O. Henry, who has been for several months engaged in the promotion of a land enterprise in Mexico, returned to Denver a few days ago to spend the holidays with his fam ily. He has just organized a corpora tion composed of old friends in Kansas City and Kansas, for the purpose of colonizing, a large tract of land loca-ted on the Pauueo river and tributary to the Mexican Central railroad and the port of Tampico. This company pro poses to locate a townsite at the head of navigation on the river, in. connec tion with the lands to be sold to the colonists, giving an opportunity to peo ple with small means to secure a home. "The conditions in Mexico," said Mr. Henry, "are a constant source of sur prise to those who go down there for the first time. No one who has not seen it for himself can understand the process that has been made there and incidents that have come under my personal observation would fill columns. The first thing that strikes a close observer is the fact that things are settled that apparently bottom has been reached. In this country the peo ple are burdened with statesmen who all want to have a hand in running the government, and the ordinary bus iness man feels compelled to be repre sented in Washington by somebody who thinks as he does, in order that his business will not be deranged. The result is that he has not enough time to get his business in proper shape be fore there is another turmoil and he must rearrange his affairs in order to be in accord with the policy of the gov ernment. "In Mexico it is entirely different. There has not been a financial statute passed for more than twenty years and there has been no change in the meth ods of doing business. The laws are made and administered for the benefit of the whole people and not for the ben efit of the few, and when they are made they are enforced without favor or partiality. For example, if you want to build a railroad there you are re ferred to the proper bureau and re ceived courteously and with all the en couragement that one could ask. You are asked where you want to run the line, and if it happens that the section is already traversed by a railroad you are told without any circumlocution that you can't do it; that one railroad is enough there; that as "the rates per mile are fixed by the chartf-, competi tion is unnecessary; and that the building of railroads to ruin each other will not be permitted. "When a man wrecks a train in Mex ico, there is no necessity for the organi zation of a lynching party to hang the offender. If he is caught near the spot he is shot, and if he manages to get away no concern is felt, for it is as nearly certain as possible that he will be shot anyway. If a man commits a cold-blooded murder he is decapitated. The sentiment in Mexico is that there is no use in wasting time in trying to reform such men and that the interests of society demand that they should be put under the sod as expeditiously as possible. As a result of this state of affairs, life and property are safer in Mexico than they are in the United States, and any man who obeys the law is certain of protection to the full est extent of the law. You don't hear any discussion in Mexico of the aboli tion of capital punishment or of curren cy reform, or of any other of the nu merous things that are constantly coming up in this country. If there should be any conference of bankers there as was recently held in Indianap olis to instruct the government in re gard to the establishment of anv new system of finances it would be thought necessary to have them placed under official inspection. -.Now what is doing in Mexico? Peo ple are coming in there in large num bers because it affords the best field for investment in the world. Not long ago I stopped over night with an Amer ican living 150 miles south of Vera Cruz, and during the eveninsr seven young men came in, none of them over 30 years old. and all of them gradu ates of American colleges. They were engaged in raising sugar cane coffee vanilla, oranges, lemons and other pro ducts for export. They could find noth ing that promised returns in the I'nlted States and there they are prospering I have seen thousands of acres of land tinder the plow that have lain fallow for o0 years. An American implement dealer in a little town near Guadalajara on the west coast told me that during the past he. had sold 1.100 Amerk-an plows. Ten years ago the annual im ports of cotton and woolen goods from the United I f-tates amounted to more than $,.000,000. This vear thev will not reach a value of $500,000. Cotton factories have been started up and now the products of the Unite States are not in it with those of Mexico, the onlv foreign competition that amounts to anything being the fine grades from France and England. It is much the same with woolen goods. The cotton factories have absorbed all the cotton produced in the country and though the production of cotton has been greatly stimulated it has been found necessary to import large quant ties of the raw material from the United States. President Robinson of the Mexican Central railroad told me re cently as the result of this great in crease in manufacturing enterprises the income of the road during the first ...unuio w tins year was 50 per cent larger than for the same period of last year and many times greater than ten years ago. "I might continue indefinitely on this line. The evidences of prosperity are to be seen every where.People are com ing in because they are certain of mak ing money there and everywhere in the country may be seen new enterprises starting with foreign capital, which is thus being drawn for the development of resources that are as vet in their in fancy. President Robinson called my attention to another notable fact the associations of Mexicans for the con duct of business enterprises. Formerly the wealthy Mexicans lived on their great haciendas like feudal lords. They had their enormous estates, cultivated by thousands of peons, by whom they were reverenced with a devotion scarce ly second to that accorded the Al mighty. They had few associates, were afraid to trust each other, and for the most part lived entirely to themselves. Nothing more clearly illustrates the ex- MINERS ANOC-t f tA to r-i yH plmmu FAT Fo. -rue 1 ': fin - Vtfiu. HAVE iND.PMENCfc tent of the awakening of this great country than the fact that these men, stimulated by the example of foreign ers, are now coming together and unit ing their capital for the development of the resources of their country. "The industries are so varied that it is difficult to say what should receive the attention of foreign investors. Sil ver mining is profitable. Manufactur ing establishments of all kinds are in demand. The raising of tropical pro ducts is always inviting. Coffee, va nilla, sugar cane, oranges, lemons, ba nanas, are all profitable. Almost any thing that man can do best can be en gaged in with a reasonable certainty of success. The cultivation of rubber is an important and growing industry. The great demand for rubber conse quent upon recent inventions and the high price which is likely to continue for an indefinite period owing to the constantly increasing demand renders this a very desirable field of industry. It must be borne in mind that every thing raised in Mexico finds a ready market in the other countries of the world. "Now in regard to the causes of this remarkable awakening. I have no hesitation in saying that the main rea son for the wonderful development of the country is the fact that it has a stable currency. The silver dollar there, while it has been reduced more than one-half in value in other parts of the world, will pay for just as much labor, and will go just as far in every way as it ever did. It does not re quire any very great mathematical ability to figure out the result. Every thing bought in Mexico is paid for in silver.Everything exported from Mex ico is paid for in gold. If the exports do not already exceed the imports they soon will and when this takes place the gold will begin to flow into the coun try. The national debt is $103,000,000 in gold, and it is now being refunded at 4 per cent. The production of gold in the country, though gold mining is not carried on to any great extent is about $8,000,000 per annum, twice the amount paid out in interest. The people are all prosperous because they can all get something to do. They hav come to appreciate the advantages of the situ ation; they have more money to spend with no increase in their expenses, and the profits resulting from the new en terprises are being reinvested. With such a condition of affairs the country cannot help becoming wealthy.

OR tlothlNGc causes for Mexican prosperity is found in a pamphlet issued by the Mexican Central, which is owned by Boston capitalists, setting forth the advanta ges of the country. Little more than a year ago. if such sentiments had been expressed in Boston their author would have been regarded as a lunatic or an anarchist who should be confined for the benefit of the community; and yet this pamphlet was compiled and print ed in Boston and is being scattered broadcast over the country to refute the gold standard arguments used in the last campaign. This pamphlet says: 'While Mexico's prosperity is unques tionably due to a large number of causes, prominent among which are the suppression of disorder, the extension of railroads, and the liberal policy of the government toward foreign capi talists and emigrants, it is very evi dent that her industrial growth has been powerfully stimulated by the ex isting monetary standard. When sil ver and gold as valued in the world's commodities, parted company, and Mexican dollars (which were being ex ported to Europe) were sold for less price as measured in the currency of the gold standard countries, a rise in the price of all imported articles began in Mexico. rom this time dates the development of Mexico's cotton and woolen industries, as well as the in crease in the exportation of articles other than precious metals. The de mand and the margin of profit for home-made goods increased as Mexi can dollars depreciated. The native manufacturer enlarged his operations. introduced improved machinery and oegan to compete successfully with many grades of imported goods. The consumer now purchases from the Mexican manufacturer at the same price in silver as when silver was at par with gold. Instead of being ex ported to Europe, as formerly, many millions of dollars have thus been kept at home and added to the capital of the country. " 'While it is true that the Mexican dollar, as measured in francs, marks or pounds sterling, has decreased in value nearly 50 per cent, it is also true that prices of almost every class of foreign goods have decreased 50 per cent. A suit of clothes made from the finest quality of imported goods costs only the same number of Mexican silver dollars that it cost 25 years ago. " 'The foreign investor doubles his capital when he brings it to Mexico. He gets the advantage of cheap and docile labor for silver and sells his exported product for gold. The native producer has prospered under silver at the ex pense of the foreign merchant and im porter. Silver in Mexico has stimula ted exports and contracted imports.' "These admissions by American cap italists, form a startling commentary upon the comparative conditions of the two countries." The Burlington's New Observation Vestibuled Trains. A very handsome set of wide obser vation vestibuled trains are just out of the Burlington's shops. They are avail able for all classes of travel, and are the only trains of their kind to St Louis from the Missouri River. These are the Denver, Missouri River and St Louis limited trains. Every car has a wide observation vestibule. The trains are lighted throughout with Pintsch gas and equipped also with standard and compartment sleepers. These trains are a duplicate of the new "Eli" to Chicago. This achievement reflects the high est credit upon the Burlington man agement in Missouri, which is the first to introduce into the service, from the west to St. Louis, these solid, complete, wide-vestibuled trains for all classes of travel.

Secretary Wil son of the agricultural department is displaying much interest in the en couragement of the exportation of horses for sale in European markets.He believes there is no good reason whv the United States should not supply many of the horses used abroad and is especially impressed with the belief that we could breed in this country particularly in the western states horses which could be serviceable for cavalry purposes. The agents of the department in Lon don and other places have been in structed to make reports on this sub ject covering the general questions and the style of horse, the demand, price, etc. This information will be embodied in one of the bulletins soon to be is sued. C. E. Stubbs, agent of several horse associations in this country will leave for Europe in a few days to in vestigate the horse markets of Europe with special reference to cavalry horses and such data as he obtains of general interest to horse breeders who might be induced to embark in this new field of competition, will be turned over to the department for publication.
