Ordinary Summer Trade Con
ditions Are Not Apparent.
Brisk Retail Trade as Well as
Fall Orders.
HEAVY PRODUCTION
Is Reported From the Manu
factoring Centers.
Bank Clearings Show Gains at
Nearly Every Point.
New Tork, July 13. R. G. Dun &
Co. 'a Weekly Review of Trade says:
There Is not the customary com
plaint of midsummer dullness in gen
eral trade, channels, w hile the demand
for seasonable fabrics Is rapidly de
pleting; stocks that threatened to be
carried over. Brisk retail trade Is ac
companied by more prompt collections
and many . cities that were slow to re
spond to the better feeling: now send
satisfactory reports. Jobbers and
wholesalers are receiving; liberal or
ders for fall and winter merchandise
and Interior buyers are active -In the
primary markets.-- Manufacturing; re
turns tell of large orders on hand and
very heavy production during; the first
half of the year.
Lower prices for pig; Iron were due
to the larger output and more prompt
deliveries that reduced the premiums
paid for early shipments. Consump
tion has not appreciably diminished,
although a few of the steel mills are
closed for repairs. Despite some fur
naces rendered idle for the same rea
son the total number in blast increased
six during- June.
Quiet conditions prevail in the pri
mary markets for cotton goods, but
the mills are fully occupied and there
is no prospect of easier terms, owing
to the large amount of business under
contract unless extensive cancellations
ore received. Woolens are not active,
new lines of men's wear being opened
dally without attracting much atten
tion, and little development is antici
pated before the end of the month.
Braclstreefd.
Bradstreet's says:
The leading industries note great ac
tivity, with summer shut downs limited
by the desire of manufacturers to catch
up with orders. Prices of commodities
as a whole, are at a high midsummer
level. Building is less active at some
centers, but of record volume at other
cities, and prices of lumber and other
materials reflect some irregularity. De
mand for structural material I9 light,
but some heavy business is pending.
Steel bars are taken quite freely. A
comparatively large business in open
hearth steel rails on special specifica
tions is reported, but otherwise the
market Is quite dull. Copper .is much
lower, the long expected "cmcial" break
In prices having materialized. Some
new business followed as the result of
the reduced prices, but thus far there
has been no general buying movement,
and there is a disposition to question
whether prices have been lowered suf
ficiently to induce an active demand
from American concerns.

PETER PAH FAVORITE.
Brighton Handicap With a Purse of
$25,000 the Big Race of Today.
New York. July 13. The Brighton
handicap at $25,000. the companion
stake to the Brooklyn and suburban,
and the richest of the three will be
run today at Brighton Beach. Four
teen horses have been named as prob
able starters and on paper the race
has every appearance of being the
equal if not the superior of any run
this year.
James R. Keene's Peter Pan, the
biggest money winner so far this Bea
son and a colt which stands out as the
probable champion three-year-old of
the year, is named to start and will
probably go to the post a favorite in
epite of the fact that he must take up
115 pounds and concede weight, ac
cording to the scale, to every horse in
the race.
Among the horses which will do
battle with Peter Pan are Montgomery,
Nealon, the hero of the suburban:
Dandelion, Tokalon. Cotton Town, Mc
Carter and Kountainblue.
The race, like the Brooklyn and the
suburban, is at a mile and a quarter.
The track Is so fast that there is a
bare possibility that Broom Stick's
American record of 2:02 4-5 for the
distance may be broken. Broom Stick
made this mark in beating Irish Lad
a head for the same stake in 1904.
XO LAW AGAINST IT.

his Juniors in years and experience.

HAYWOOD FINISHES.
Examination of the Defendant In
V ".Steunenberg Case Is Closed.
Boise. Idaho. Julv '- 13. After the
j luncheon recess Friday' in the Steunen
I berg case. Senator Borah questioned
Haywood - as to his various meetings
1 with Orchard. The witness said he
knew absolutely nothing about Orch
ard's whereabouts from the time of the
Independence denot explosion June 6.
1904, until he came to headquarters in
Denver in Januarv. "1905.
' Haywood could not recall ever having
met Orchard in company with Mrs.
Lottie Day at the 'Belmont ; rooming
house in Denver, and declared positively
that he did not at this time or any time
enter Harry Orchard's1 room. Mrs. Day,
a witness for the defense, told on cross-examination-of
Itie -incident which Hay
wood denied, -i'-'. . - .
Within, a f e,w. days after the Inde
pendence depot explosion Haywood said
the papers began to- connect Harry
Orchard's name with the affair. They
commented upon the fact that he had
left Cripple Creek and gone to Wyom
ing. . -.- 1 "
'The papers- seemed to know . where
be had gone, , said the witness.
- "Did you?" asked- Senator Borah.
VNo; sir." -. .'. '.. -
."Did you ever meet Mrs. Harry Orch
ard?" .. , - '
"Yes, sir, it must have been at head
quarters." . . .' ' .
. '.'How many times was she' there?"
"I ' can't say." -. -
. "In your letter Ao Mrs. Orchard you
said that the last information you got
as to Orchard's whereabouts was from
Alaska?" :
- "Yes, sir."
""And the, only Information you had
was his statement that he , thought of
going to Alaska?" ,. . .
"Yes, . sir." . ' ". " ; .
"And your reason for saying what
you did was because you did not want
to convey to. her the real facts that
were In your" possession?"
"Yes, sir,., I think that was It."
"Did you ever talk to Harry Orchard
In any way about. Governor Steunen?
berff?" ; - - - -
"I don't think t ever -did." '"-' -
"Did you ever hear Orchard mrike any
threats against Governor Steunenberg?
"I don't think I ever did."
"You had no knowledge of any per
sonal enmity Orchard may have had
towards governor Eteunenberg?
"No, sir."
Federation Drops Orchard.
Before employing an attorney to de-
rend orchard, Haywood said the or
ganization did nothing to . discover
what Orchard had been doing prior to
the murder of Governor Steunenberg.
Neither was there any investigation to
" determine the man's guilt or
inno
' cence. The federation officials went
r over the transcript of the evidence at
I, the preliminary hearing before finally
engaging Attorney Fred ' Miller and
paying him $1,500. Orchard made no
irequest to be furnished an attorney..
"The second telegram you sent to
Idaho as to the employment of coun
sel saying the Western Federation of
Miners defended no man guilty ' of
crime but in the past had found that
all or its accused members were In
nocent and would' have been the "Vic
tlms of a conspiracy unless the federa
tlon had come to their assistance; was
that telegram'- gfWhr'O'ut to the Asso
elated Pf es at the time it was sent ?"
"It was given to the press-.'yes sir."
. "When' did thes federation cease to
defend Harry Orchard ?"s . . :j
"I can't say exactly as to that, sen
atoiy but -I think? It. was when Attor
ney Miller came here to Bo4seand-was
told that Orchard, had no further use
for him or his services; .. Mr. Miller;
made no report to me about that.
"Did you know sthat .Orchard was. in
thf Coeucsid'Alenes with Jack, .Simp-
kins in the fall f3sf,05?"
. "No. sir." . m
"Did you ever discuss with George
A. Pettibone the whereabouts of Or
chard?" f
"No. sir."
"Did you ever tell Pettibone you had
sent Simpkins a draft for $100?" ,, -
"No, sir."
Many Tales of Woe. .
"But Simpkins did leave J 100 with
you and you sent him a federation
draft on December 21. 1905?"
"Not a federation draft, no, sir.
You have the draft."
"It is signed by you as secretary
treasurer." ; "Yes.- sir:"
;. This ended the cross-examination.-
On redirect Haywood said he had
an Impression that he had heard Or
chard speak of having once owned an
interest In the Hercules.
"But I have heard so many tales of
woe sinc I have been secretary of the
federation, I can't'say positively about
Orchard." he added.
Tn all cf his acts in connection with
th defense of Orchard, the witness
said he first consulted with General
Counsel Murphy.
Senator Borah on re-cross-examination
asked; .'"'.'-'.." '
"Did Attorney liller,"when he came
to Denver and said he had been sent
by Simpkins to defend Orchard, ex
plain to you why Simpkins sent a
telegram on- January 4, saying he
could not get a!, lawyer, when as a
matter of, fact Miller- had - left for
Caldwell on January 3?"
"No, sir." ,", : V
Haywood, .said he had no ' way of
knowing whether Simpkins knew that
Miller had really gone. . ,'
This completed Haywood's testi
mony and court adjourned until today
at 9 o'clock. . - .' f

Chicago, July 12. WHEAT Nature- has
been kind to the bears in wheat this week,
the glowing reports from the growing
crops winter and spring gave them plen-v
ty of courage to sell wheat andthe mar
ket broke a few cents a bushel. . But every
serious break heretofore was soon follow
ed by a substantial rally, and this will
doubtless not prove any exception. The
new September wheat at. today's closing
price, 94c, looks temptingly cheap, consid
ering that it was up to $1.00 only a very
short time ago. The government report
makes the winter wheat condition Julir 1,
78.3, compared with 77.4 a month ago and
85.6 a year aKO. That ahnora var, nm.
progress of the plant during the usual fine
crop month of June, and it is over 7 points
lower than a year ago. It indicates a
crop of only 375,000,000 bushels, using 17
bushels to the acre as the par yield. Last
year's crop, 493.000,000. a shortage of 118.
000,000. The spring wheat condition July
1 was 87.2, a month ago 88.7, a year ago
91.4. This certainly does not Indicate any
Increase In the spring wheat crop over last
year's, 242.000,000. Broomhall, the London
grain statistician, today estimates tha
European wheat shortage at 183,000,000,
Hungard showing the larsest dpflrHorwv.
This makes the worlrl's shortage practical
ly jw.wu.uuu ousneis. septemner wheat sell
ing ot only 94c in this countrv. Onlv i few
weeks ago It was about 10c higher, on this
same, serious shortage. As It still exists,
by J he same logic, wheat should gradually.
worn 11s way up tnere again. Most of tha
decline was forced by frantic profit-taking
and professional short selling. Amount of
wheat In farmers' hands July 1,. 64 mil
lion. Latest average guesses on Kansas
crop, 65,000.000. Considerable winter wheat
acreage abandoned in the southwest and
the Ohio Valley since May 1. which does
not show in the government report. Cash
wheat in western markets strong, and
European weekly exports continue large.
CORN The corn market held its own
pretty well during the week and the close
today of new September at 54o was vir
tually unchanged from a week ago. It
was very good corn weather, and ordinar
ily should have forced the price down
several cents. The government report
showed the condition on July 1 at 80.2, ex
actly four-fifths of an average crop. The
acreage planted is 98,099.000, Indicating a
crop of nearly 2 billions. Par of yield
used, 31 bushsls to the acre. Last year's
crop 2.927.000,000.' Conditions a year ago'
87.5. Very good demand for corn every
where. Stocks at market centers are com
paratively light. At present prices corn
is considered easily worth the money.
OATS Oats condition 81 against 84 a
year ago.
