Slate Jbecnri ties— Dull.
Stocks— market opened steady. Shortly
after the first transactions a decline of )4,@\
per ceat. in the general list and \% per cent, in
Oregon Transcontinental took place, The
weakness was due to the report that the nego
tiatin for placing Oregon Navigation loans in
London had fallen through. Oregon Transconti
netnalsold down to 22>4, against 28% at close
Saturday. Oregon Navigation was not affected
and advance d steadily from 91 bid to 95 for
sales. Before 11 o'clock speculation was Strong
and there was an advance again. Chicago,
Burlington & Qr.incy was in brisk demand and
was the feature of the day; after opening at 124
the p ice rose to 125. This improvement had
much to do with the strength of the general list,
which advanced [email protected]/S per cent. During the
afternoon the market was irregular, but near
the close a weaker feeling prevailed, and the
early improvement was partially lost. The re
sult of to-day's trading is shown by the fact that
out of 30 of the most active 6tocks, iOare
higher, 16 lower and 4 unchanged from last
Bight's closing prison. The principal advances
are, Chicago. Burlington & Quincy 2 per cent.,
Ch cago, liock Island & Pacific 1 per cent., and
Delaware & Hudson I}*' per cent. The principal
declines are, Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Omaha 1% per cent., preferred % per cent., and
Louisville A Nashville % per cent. Aside from
these all the changes from last right's closing
prices were only fractional.
The Evening Post says: The revival of reports
of rate cutting by tie Erie and other trunk line
roads, and of the general foaling of dissatisfac
tion among all the members of the pool, had
some effect in preventing a more decided ad
vance. It is known, however, th«t Vanderbilt,
Gonld and some others had a conference to-day
in the interest of higher prices for stocks, and
that the former ia pledged to do what he can to
i prevent any trouble in the trunk line pool.
j 'Ihere was no news t<>-day in connection with
I the difficulties of the Chicago, Burlington &
! Quincy and Union Pacific alliance, but all of the
; stocks affected by the Nebraska and Utah diffi
culties were Btrong, Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy was 2 per cent, higher, Chicago, Rock
Island & Pacific 1 per cent, and Chicago &
: Northwestern % per cent. higher, ail of which
i looks as though there way the general belief that
their difficulties would be settled without rate
cutting.

COMMERCIAL.
St. Paul, Feb. 0. —It was stated in theio
columns than an unusually early Bpring trade
might be expected this year and the past week
eliows that the anticipation wan built upon fair
ly good data, for trade has, daring the week
been opening up considerably, particularly in
some departments of trade. Looking back
upon the past month, usually the dullest of the
whole cycle—the thirteenth as it haw been aptly
called, tho wholesale houses 01 Lit.
Paul win but congratulate themse'vus.
January has no", on the whole be-n a favorable
month for business; what with low prices for
farm produce and the panicky condition of the
tinanciul world and the large number oE heavy
basiress wrecks and financial failures in differ
ent parts of the world, it would have been
Btrange indued if Bt. Paul, wi'h its immense
commercial interests and extensive manufactur
ing industries, had not felt, the depression. And
it is a fact that business generally has
been better during the past inenth
than during any previous January
in the history of the city. One house doing an
extensive trade, spread widely in all directions
through this northwestern country, states that
the business of the month lims been larger than
for any previous January, and that collections
have actually been better than sales. Daring
the past week the grocery trade has been healthy
and strong, with prices steady. Foreign and
domestic dried fruits are etroDger and a shade
higheJ" Sugars are about steady. Canned meats
in sympathy with the provision
market generally are higher ar.d
stronger. Boot and shoe manufacturers
have issued their price lists for spring goods,
and their spring trade has commenced opening
up quietly but promising a good season, seeing
that tho 6essun hae commenced some three
weeks earlier than usual. A list of spring poods
with prices current will be found in the sab
joined tables. The drug trade still continues
its extraordinary activity. The only special fea
ture is (ir.iniiic, which is again down, the result
of the break in the monopoly ring. Owing to
glass blowers being on the etiike window glas6
during the whole winter has been firm snd high,
but the strike being over and the factories being
again in fall blast glass h;is declined 23 per cent.
The leather trade is quttt Riid prices generally
steady, the exception beiDg in cole and hr.rnesH
which have advanced 1c and are firm. Shelf
hardware is quiet, there are v.o changes in quo
tations—not even in screws, which have been
cut down so low that it would be impossible
to cut again without making the discount 100 per
cent. Bneiuciss is improving, showing that the
mild weather has been taken advantage of for
pushing building operations. Heavy iron and
steel gooda have been fairly active and prices
are stiff with an upward tendency. .There has
been an increased movement in lumber during
the past week, but the trade has not been ho ac
tive as might be expected from the favorable
weather. This is owing in a groat measure to
tha fact that railroads from Chicago to Mis
souri points give special rates for freight and
thus shutting St. Paul out from a field former
ly aluoet exclusively their owe. The dry
goods trade has greatly increased during the
pist week, not only in the extent of orders, but
also in the increase of individual ordere. The
buyers are busy at the eastern markets, and
new goods are received daily. There is a large
demand for bleached and browc mnslins, sheet
ings and pillow casings: a medinm demand for
tickings, ducks and denime. There has been
good Hales of white goode—nainsooke, Hamburg
embroideries and lacee. Large merchants are
in the habit of holding annual sales of linens
during Ily3 dull months, and during the past
month this plan has proved a good feature.
Goods generally, especially domestics, are down
at very low figures, low grades of brown mus
lins being fully 1c lower thfin a year ago and
others in proportion, and never within the past
seven years have merchants had
a b9ttt?r opportunity to bay than now, and the
hnavy jobbing houses are taking full advantage
of the opportunity. Spring cheviot shirtings
are opening well and orders for medium grades
are larger, and for fine grades there is a good
demand. The fashionable materials the coming
spring will be cashmeres, velvets and velveteens,
both for dresses and trimmings, and the stylish
colors will be browns (light 6hades especially),
slate and drabs; plaids and checks will also be
fashionable; navy blue will also be in vogue.
The "crashed strawberry" class of colors aro
entirely out. Plaids and brocades in complete
costume or plaid skirts with bro
cade cverskirt , and jacket, will
bo aleadirjg style. The new prints are paitic.
nlarly handsome, especially the Pacific Windsors >
Eddystonesaiid Arnold makes both in coloring
and artistic design. A new material and cheap is
the Renfrew jecqnerd gingham which has more
the appearance.of the old fashioned mouslin-de
laine than anything else. It is in all colors acd
in stripes, plaids and mixtures, is very novel,
striking and effective. In about a week the
spring stocks will be generally completed^ and
the spring trade will commence in earnest.
Tin following fables of quotations have been
carefully revised and corrected and may be re

Among the Coinnila&lon Men.
The commission business has been quiet dur
ing the p^Bt jveek. There has been but little deal
ing in wheat excepting on the curb, bit unlike
the Chicago curb operators ours have purchased,
paid for and housed the grain from farmers,
wagon*. Tr c highest price quoted for wheat
was 91c, but the uniform buying rate has been
90c for No. 1 and 85c for No. 2.
The total number of car loads
shipped by rail to this point was bat 79. Dur
; ing the last day or two road receipts of j grain
: have been larger, the snow fall being favorable
for farmers to come to town. Receipts of corn
have been very light; prices have ranged at
about 50iJ for No. 2; the number of car loads
received was 13;' the oat receipts have been
still lighter, 11 care only having come over the
rails; pric=6 have been uniform. In speak
ng of grain there. appears to
be great dissatisfaction among , the
commission men respecting grain inspection, the
general opinion being that the present inspec
tion is worthless, and it is thought the subject
will come before the directors of the board of
trade shortly in view of the matter being
brought before the nest legislature. Hay still
continues weak and low; 32 cars have been
shipped to this point, ar.d daily the hay market
has been crowded with wagons loaded with
timothy and -wild. The higr eel
price reached during the, week whs $6.50.
The remarks respecting butter las* week are
equally applicable now; there has,however, been
perhaps a slight, improvement in the eastern
movement, but no improvement. ■in prices has
been noted. .Beans are still a drug in the mar
ket. In view ok the great rise la provisions' a"
i>Kt.»ide nirirke:« dressed meats of all kinds are
stiffening in price. Beef is shade higher than
quotations and hogs large enough for packing
ire sough: after. Eggs have been going up
steadily. The demand is not heavy otherwise
they would reach unprecedented prices, for they
are not only scarce he: o but throughout the
country. E Flour and breadstuff a are sluggish
and barely steady in view of the ■ low price of
wheat. But it is a question with the farmers how
it is that flour can maintain its price with wheat
where it is, is a question worth diseas
ing. /Buckwheat is c >nsiderably lower.
Stocks are very heavy, and the demand light,
the i season for ' its .use' having nearly
expired. There is no change in fruit*. Tee de
mand for oranges and lemons is steady | and the.
supply ample. I Apples are getting scarce, '■'. and
holders of good stock will shortly be ' able to
make better prices. The London far sales have
placed Minnesota rats 5 J per cent, lower, V and
Manitoba a little higher. Beaver, by the same
authority,' is placed J25 per cent, higher, 'i'he
rat crop tas been -an unusually largo
one, there having been a million skins brought
to this market. Linseed oils are quiet. ; There
has been a demand for flax seed, at $1 .SO per
bashel, and it is thought that farmers of south
Minnesota and lowa' will grow more of this
c?rial in the future and lose of wheat. Poultry
chickeES aid turkeys are both sellicg a ehade
