Prospects for 1902 in the Jobbing
First Half of the Year Will Show
Hits Increase Iv Volume
of Trade.
In local jobbing circles, now that business
has practically closed for 1901, Interest quite
naturally turns to the outlook for the coining
year, In : the volume of business transacted,
in the expansion of territory reached from
'his market, and in obtaining new business
in close competition with other commercial
centers, Minneapolis jobbers are closing a
year that has been the most successful in
their history.
The outlook to-day for an Increased busi
ness the coming year is much better than it
was on the corresponding date a year ago.
Values are on a settled and steady basis, with
every indication that in most lines if there
ore- any fluctuations it will be to a higher
bests. The people of the northwest were
never more prosperous than they are at pres
ent, as Indicated by the heavy Christmas
trade. And, last but not least, immigration
the coming spring will exceed any previous
year, according to reports from the best of
authorities. All these conditions will Increase
the volume of trade the first half of 1902, and
Minneapolis jobbers are preparing to push
Into new states after increased business as
they never have done before.
Collections at the close of the year are in
fair condition. Money has not come in quite
as freely the past month as was expected, but
the prospects for January payments on new
and old accounts are good, and cash received
for the year has been much in excess of 1900,
with fewer old accounts to be carried over.
Sugar Is Easy.
In wholesale groceries interest for the
, week has centered in refined sugar. The rad
ical reduction of 25 points in hards was put in
effect here on Monday, and softs were reduced
15 points, having been reduced 10 points the
previous week. Local jobbers continue to sell j
beet granulated 10 points under eastern re
fined, and this reduction forced sugar to the
lowest point reached in two years in the
local market. Prospects favor a still further
reduction in values. New Orleans is selling ]
sugar Cjjio points belo v w New York and Is on !
en easy basis. European raw is easier, and |
crop estimates show a larger yield. These |
conditions, together with the renewal of the
sugar war between the big factors, all point i
to still lower prices. Refining season tor open
kettle New Orleans molasses ended prema
turely last week, owing to damage to cane
crop by frost. Production is greatly reduced
and outlook is for higher prices. Spot coffee
market is on a steady basis. Owing to renew
al of sugar war, there is a prospect*?)' cutting .
iv luce coffee among large roasters,' and j
lower prices. .'Business in teas is nominal, with
the market firm. Provisions are on a steady
basis locally, with no important change. in
dried fruits prunes In the four sizes are \^a
J,ic higher on the coast. Seeded raisins are
Cue to advance slightly on the coast. Loose
EM steady, with, two and four-crpwn reported
as scarce. Currants may develop easier tone
in the face of increased arrivals from Greece.
Market on canned tomatoes Is stronger, ad
vances amounting to [email protected]»40 on rs and 2s
having gone into effect. Futures have opened
l".i&:'0c higher than last year in Baltimore.
Gallon apples are strong and advancing. Corn
Is easy. Peas are steady. Nutmegs have ad
vanced slightly abroad.
I'ruilN and Produce.
General tone of the market on northwest
produce is steady to firm. Creamery extras
have advanced ** cent during the week and
are firmly held, with local supplies of mod
erate proportions. Dairies are steady and
without change. Fancy roll and print is in
light supply and is held firm at quotations.
Eggs have eased [email protected] cents for strictly
fresh, due to mild weather, and heavier of
ferings of storage at a fair range. Cheese
is steady. Poultry is on a steady basis, with
the exception of turkeys, which are ] 2 cent
lower. Hens, springs, ducks and geese are (
on & strong basis. Present values will prob
ably hold till after New Year's. Dressed '
meats are easy on veal and mutton, with
dressed hogs' in light supply. Mild weather
has aided potato and vegetable situation,
heavier receipts coming forward, with values
generally steady. Dried peas are in light
supply and higher. Dried beans are nominal.
Fresh fish continues scarce. In fruits values'
are on a stea-ly basis, with principal interest
centered in .oranges. Lemons are easier for
Californias. Apples are firmer and will ad
vance shortly.
Glaus Continues Easy.
In the absence of a heavy buying demand,
and due to increasing competition among'
makers glass continues on an easy basis', with
prospects of a decline after the turn of the
Farm Implement* Quiet.
Demand for farm implements for immediate
delivery is quiet. Interest in future delivery
is increasing and retailers are visiting the
market in larger numbers, ordering for de
livery the latter part of January and early
in Febuary. A famine In sleighs exists and
orders are delayed in being filled. Movement
of corn grinding machinery, feed cutting ma
chinery and gasolene engines continues heavy.
Oils Are Higher.
Linseed oil is on a stronger basis to-day.
Values have advanced 1 cent during the week
and are held firm. Turpentine has also ad
vancer '-i'&l cent a gallon. White lead, red
h-ad, litharge, etc., have been reduced V* cent
a pound.
< lot'.ilisjf to Advance.
Local representatives of eastern clothing
manufacturers predict an advance the early
part of the new year. Febrics and cloths
have been advanced sSl2>* cents a yard in
some quarters and demand exceeds supply.
Owing to then* higher prices and shortage
of materials clothing manufacturers say that
an advance is imperative. Large retailers
and wholesalers have protected themselves
utiainst the advance by buying heavily for fu

Business of the Year Just Closing
The Climax Wu hu Euurmoni lioli-
Uny Trade— Ueueral
He view.
New York, Dec. 28.—The annual review of
American trade, finance and industry prepared
by Bradstroet declares 1901 to be a "record
breaker" among the five succeeding years of
commercial expansion enjoyed by the United
States. Its pre-eminence, the review states,
was all the more notable because it suffered
from a combination of happenings that in a
normal year would have proved depressing if
■lot disastrous. Enumerated in the latter were
the machinists' and steel strike, the stock
panic of Alay, the failure of several im
prudently managed combinations, the effort*'
of some combinations, including that in cop
per, to fix pi ices, the shortage in corn, cot
ton and oats, aid the assassination of Presi
dent McKinley. Summarizing the general
situation, the review bays: :.*"—''-
Briefly summarized, the year has seen
transacted an aggregate of general business
as reflected in bank clearings, far in excess
of any preceding period; has setn wild stock
speculation, rampant beyond the dreams of
old time. brokers, checked and curtailed by
one of the sharpest stock panics in history,
and yet with a remarkable minimum of dis
turbance of general financial operations; has
watched geaeral industry and production
grow steadily, until new and larger figures
were needed to express the outputs of coal
and ore and iron and steel and leather and
lumber and a multitude of other branches;
has seen the freight transportation facilities
of the country, strained to the breaking point,
prove insufficient to handle the volume of
business offered; and finally has witnessed a
volume of holiday business passing all previ
ous bounds, both on the quantity and quality
and the vastly increased purchasing power of
the public in late years. ....
Bank. Clearing* Break Records.
From the standpoint of the present esti
mates, the clearings this year will exceed the
highest records or preceding years by one
fourth. Gross railway earnings have been
increased 12 per cent and net returns havo
gained 16 per cent over the best preceding
year. Pig iron production will be rot far
from one-seventh larger than the heaviest
ever recorded. Shoe production and ship
ments and, therefore, presumably leather pro
duction, shows almost as large a gain.
Iron ore production and shipments were
never before equalled; certainly like ship
ments were fever so large. Anthracite coal
production will be fully 10 per cent larger
than last year end 5 per cent heavier than the
record. The bituminous production promises
as heavy again over past records. Woolen
manufacturing has been helped by low cost
of material and good demand for clothing.
All the returns are not so favorable. There
has been less money in cotton for the south
this year, and the margin of profit in manu
facture has occasioned complaint there and
in new and old England. The agricultural in
terest has been favored by heavy advances in
farm products, which have done much to
counterbalance reductions in yield. Export
trade has shown signs of hesitation after
years of steady advance, and imports have in
creased, but mainly in materials Intended for
domestic manufacture,. and the margin in
favor of export is still enormously heavy.
The bank clearings were estimated at $118,
--000,000,000, a gain of 8 per cent over last year,
and I'ti per cent over the record of 1899.
Fur the Pant Week.
Reports of a record-breaking holiday trade;
of seasonable quiet In leading wholesale lines;
of exceptional activity at top prices in Iron
and steel; of sustained activity in other In
dustries; continued complaints of car and
motive power shortage, and a general hard
ening of speculative markets! for food prod
ucts, are the features of trade advices to
Bradstreet's this week. . . .
Specially good reports as to holiday distri
bution come from the east, central west,
northwest and southwest. Advices from some
parts of the south are tempered with a pes
simism born of the unsatisfactory yields of
cotton in some sections. In the west, Chi
cago sends a particularly fine report, ai;"d St.
Louis, Kansas City, Cincinnati, St. Jo : «>ph !
and Omaha send reports of the best holiday
trade in years.
The year closes with a burst of activity in
iron and steel. Pig iron sales for the week
have never been equaled at this season, and
lack of adequate transport facilities alone
is a bar to a still greater volume of distribu
tion. The outlook is for a production of
1G,000,000 tons of pig.iron, of 30,000,000 tons
or ore and of 12,000,000 tons of steel in 1901.
Wheat apparently cut loose from corn this
week and displayed exceptional activity and
strength for a holiday week. Reports of
lack of snow over the winter crop have been
received, but reports of a smaller surplus in
Argentina, better cables, light receipts west
and northwest, and smaller gains In the visi
ble supply have all been feature* Export
business has rather been checksd by the rise.
Corn has been dull, though steadied by wheat,
while oats have firmed up a little.
Wheat, including flour, exports for the week
aggregate 4,291,543 bu, as against 4,332,832 bu
last week and 3,8^,165 bu In this week last
year. Wheat exports, July 7to date (twenty
six weeks), aggregate 144,928,090 bu, as against
92,952,244 bu last season.
Corn exports aggregate 424,338 bu, as
against 330,941 bu last week and 4,011,105 bu
last year. July Ito date, corn exports are
20,550.515 bu, against 93,178,344 bu last season.
Hides are strong and leather is also, the
outlook being favorable for higher prices for
shoes. The cut in refined sugar of from 10
to 25 points is really a reflection of the cut in.
raw, but talk of the "war" continues. Coffee
is stronger and In better demand.
Quiet is the main feature in the wholesale
dry goods trade. Wool is strong and tends
higher. Receipts of wool at Boston for the
year were 40 per cent larger than a year ago.
Business failures for the week number 219,
as against 262 last week, 213 in this week
last year, 230 in 1899. 218 in 1898, and 297 in
Canadian failures number 16. as against 24
last week, 15 in this week a year ago and 22
in 1899.

That of Great Britain Apparently on
the Down Grade.
London, Doc. 28.—Groat Britain's iron trade
seems to be on the down grade. The produc
tion of pig iron in 190.1 is estimated at about
2,800,000 tons, as compared with 3,109,000 tons
in 1900 and 3,251,000 tons in 1899, and although
the production of steel should come nearly up
to the standard of 1900 when it totaled 1,340,
--000 tons' of ingots of all kinds, the total
quantity of manufactured iron will show a
bi gfalllng off. The shipments of pig iron
will be raised by the end of the year to about
1,050,000 tons or within 60,000 tons of the quan
tity shipped in 1900.

Dear Sir: Your wells are going down very well, so the driller informs me.
Mr. Stum is a very good driller and should bring you in first-class wells. I
understand he has contracted for three for you. Your property is the best
producing territory in the field, and I congratulate you on securing same.

I have looked into your proposition thoroughly, and have decided to pur
chase five thousand (5,000) shares at 10c per share, being non-assessable, fully
paid. I see no reason, with the continuation of your able management, and
wun your noldings and contracts and shipping facilities, why you cannot make
money for your shareholders as well as for yourselves.
Your company appeals to me as the best thing in the field, on account of
its small capitalization and valuable holdings in the actual, proven oil field. I
also like the manner in which you are going ahead and getting your company
to the front. I have spoken to several friends, whom you will hear from short
ly. They may not take a great deal of stock, but will buy some; you know
everybody here Is loaded up on oil stock.

United States Fuel Oil Company,
St. Paul, Minn.:
Gentlemen—You will be pleased to know that I am informed from reliable sources
that the well at High Island came in with a "big to-do"; oil spouted and gas came
in quantities, as well as oil-bearing sand. The same informants say that it was shut
off as soon as possible by the owners, and that they are making a pretense at baling
it. The news came by the manager of the railroad running down there, and by an
employe of L. M. Emery at that place. I am highly elated over the High Island
proposition, but it is not public enough to -speak of to advantage yet.
I received the deed to have put in the Stewart abstract, and will look after the
Bame. Court is on me, with a great deal of work just now; however. 1 am dropping
other things for this and your other matters.
With best wishes, yours very truly,

Gentlemen: Your company is now in a position to do business and will receive
the indorsements of our people, whether investors or not. It is a proposition that
appeals to any one wanting to invest in this great field. Your large holdings, cover
ing every prominent oil-bearing section here, together with your coveted Spindle Top
properties and your contract with Mr. Sturm for the bringing in of three guaranteed
wells, makes your proposed proposition, basad on ita small capitalization, a most prom

what we would like to see all companies do, work hard for those who have invested
with you and give them as much as you can for their money.
Yours truly,
What National Oil Reporter Says About The United
States Fuel Oil Company.
Another producing oil company.
Before July Ist, 1902, the United States Fuel Oil Company of St. Paul, Minn., will
have a daily capacity in the Beaumont oil field of 225,000 barrels. \V. I. Sturm, one
of the most reliable drillers in the Beaumont field, has secured the contract for bring
ing in three guaranteed eix-inch gushers for this new company on their Spindle
Top property, in block 32, on Spindle Top avenue. This property is surrounded by the
largest producing wells in the Beaumont field, Including the Heywood wells, Hlggins,
Guft'y & Oaley, Lucas, Beatty, Star and Crescent, National Oil and Pipe Line, Gladys
City, Yellow Pine and Hoag-Swain. There is no doubt but the United States Fuel
Oil Company of St. Paul will have throe of the best producing welis in the entire
field. This company has done more than many other companies, as it has completed
arrangements with the Higgins Oil Company for rights over all its pipe lines and
arrangements for transportation for all its output. The company's holdings are all
held in fee simple, being two lots in Block 32, Spindle Top; 12% acres in the Bullock
& Brown survey, adjoining the city limits of Beaumont; 20 acres at Alvin, near the
Thomas well; 50 acres at High Island, adjoining the depot and rear the Big Four well.
10 acres at Sour Lake, near Guffy property; 100 acres in Liberty county; also, Lot
1 in Block 3, crown of High Island.
Considering its three guaranteed wells, its valuable Spindle Top property, and
its diversified holdings in outside territory, together with its small capitalization, its
perfect facilities for handling its oil (made with one of the largest companies in the
South) makes this company a much-talked-about business proposition.
The officers and directors are among the best-known business men in the North
west and of Beaumont. The capital stock is $300,000; main office, 144-146 Endicott
buildings, St. Paul, Minn.—National Oil Reporter.
Copies of the above letters are on file in this office, and doubters are at liberty to
call for certified copies or call in person and inspect any of them. This company
is organized for the purpose of acquiring oil properties and to sell oil.
Capitalized at $300,000—one hundred thousand dollars in the treasury for develop
ment work. Company now at work in Beaumont oil field.
Every treasury certificate fully paid and non-asseasable. Shares now selling at
10 cents each. No less than 100 shares issued. Amount and time on this extraordi
nary offer limited.
This offer should not be compared with any business offering ever presented in
the Northwest—time will demonstrate facts, as past progress has already told our
Early Subscribers Have Advantages.
We advise you to forward your subscription as early as possible. You may
be just a day or so late if you put it off. All remittances and communications should

Texas Oil Increasing in Price.
The price of Texas Oil In comparison
w c™?.! haA heretofore been ridiculously
low When the advantages of oil over coal
are taken into consideration, it Is surpris
ing to find oil almost three times as cheap
as coal. At first this oil was used only
a? a m cl. ,now it Is known to be a first
class illuminant. The finest grade of gaso
lene is being made from it, and a |100,000
Plant is building solely for the production
of asphaltum from Beaumont Oil.
. The demand for the oil Is multiplying
aauy, and orders are coming from greater
distances. The prices are getting otlfter.
ana oil men are confident that they will
continue to advance until something like
a p,arl T ls established between oil and
Tho proposition OF THE TEXAS GEY
SER OIL COMPANY will never b* better
than it la to-day, for this reason: Their
first well is within a few feet of the oil.
and certain to strike within a day or
two at most, and yet their stock Is selling
at the original price, 25 cents per share.
The day the well come* In all sale of
stock will be discontinued. This is the
offer— in a company with plenty of
capital, with one well nearly In and 1,000
acres of valuable property in the best oil
lands of Texas, with all arrangements
made for handling the oil and for piping
it to Port Arthur, and still selling at the
same price it sold for when not a stroke
of work had been done. The proposition
cannot be bettered, and In fact it will
never be so good again. If you care to
get a block of stock at this price, now is
your chance. Wire your order, if neces
sary, but get it into our office before wo
receive news that our first well has struck
oil. :'■;. •'. '■:
