New Tork, Oct. 23.Special telegraphic
reports on the business situation to the
International Mercantile Agency from
coi respondents thruout the United States
are summarized as follows:
Advices from leading trade centers
make plain the presence of conflicting in
fluences. Relatively the larger number
of unfavorable reports are as to the in
dustrial situation and outlook. Good
judges believe the effort to ho'd up the
price of finished steel thru the spring
will not succeed. Authorities admit thftt
pig iron makers will have to increase the
extent of the movement to restrict out
put. Pig iron given in exchange for coke
overhangs the market Soft coal prices
are being held up only thru combination
Present plans contemplate the laying off
of nearly 60,000 railway employes this
winter. Trust companies and national
bank disasters at Baltimore and Pittsburg
were caused by special conditions, and
at both cities it is believed the weak
ness of the financial situation has been
At Minneapolis spring wheat receipts
tend to confirm the belief that the goven
ment report of the size of the spring
wheat crop was too large. International
Mercantile Agency advices point to about
360.000,000 bushels of wheat from this
year's domestic crop of wheat available
for export, whereas European continental
estimates are that importing countries
Will need 180,000,000 bushels.
General jobbing trade is dull In N ew
England, but the volume is nearly equal
to that one year ago The movement
of lumber there is fair except for south
Sales of wool have been small, con
sumers awaiting lower prices. Some cot
ton mills are storing product. Shoe fac
tories are fairly busy on orders for spring
The less favorable commercial features
are in smaller sales of clothing at St.
Louis than expected, the reported pros
pect for a check to demand from country
merchants at Chicago after Jan. 1, a
smaller volume of jobbing business at
St. Paul than a year ago and backward
collections south and southwest.
On the other hand, the general business
outlook in the southwest, except in Texas,
Is bright. New Orleans anticipates a
heavy winter and spring trade Texas
trade prospects are tied up in the cotton
yield there, which has been somewhat
All Danger of Further Suspensions at
Pittsburg Has Passed.
Pittsburg, Oct. 23.The financial at
mosphere of Pitsburg seems to have been
cleared and no further bank troubles are
The official announcement made yes
terday by the clearing-house association
that $2,500,000 had been raised, that the
fund would be increased to $3,000,000 to
mept whatever emergencies may arise and
that, so far as the association could ascer
tain, none of the banks in the vicinity of
Pittsburg would require assistance has
had the effect of allaying all uneasiness
In addition to this emergency fund, $800,-
000 has been received by James W. Pat
teiaun, president of -tho Pittsburg-, Carne
gie and Western railroad, for immediate
deposit in anticipation of the improve
ments under construction here for the
It will be some time before the money
will be needed by the \arious contractors
but the bulk of it will eventually be paid
out in this district for wages.
The government experts at work upon
the books of the two banks which have
suspended declare that they have so far
found nothing serious and have" heard of
no news that is not reassuring.

Wichita, Kan., Oct. 23 A telephone
