Ing dubiously at the prospects of a re llcan victory on the merits of the re spective tickets. It Is a long time ilnoe the democrats have lost the general city hall offices without serious dissen sion in the ranks. The republicans will undoubtedly have a large majority In both boards of the court of common council. How large It will be remains to be seen. In the board of aldermen there are seven republican holdovers and five democrats. The republican holdovers are Frederic W. Bklff.DwIght W.Blakeslee,Augustus D. Sanborn, Conrad J. Rabanua Joseph T. Benham, Henry F.Keyes and Charles L. Wright There will undoubtedly be republicans returned in the First, Sec ond, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth. There Is also every evidence of republican success tn the Fifth and Eleventh wards. It looks as though there would be a sweep on the town ticket for the re publicans If the voters of the party turn out There Is also considerable feeling of a repetition of last month's grand victory. Including the election of a republican mayor. There is no doubt that the town ticket wHl be knifed by democrats In the Eleventh and Twelfth wards. Good hard work will win for the republicans on both city and town tickets. There Is strong feeling also against the nominee In the Sixth ward, and open threats have been made against Alder man Doughan by Gllhuly adherents.

Bradstreets to morrow will say; There Is no general or radical Improvement In business at the south, the southwest or the north west But In central western states and particularly at some Important cit ies in the old middle and New England states the reverse Is true, a material gain in demand for many seasonable staples having shown Itself, with a cor responding Increase in volumes of goods distributed or orders for future deliv ery. This Is Independent of the stimu lus to trade In certain lines, due to the approaching holidays, and In spite of the check to the volume of general bus iness within the week, caused by the Thanksgiving holiday A sharp revival In prices Is shown by quotations for some grades of lumber, but more particularly for cot,ton, wheat, oats, etc., improving prices of the first two of which having had an influence for good. Decreases in prices of steol rails and bars, cattle, hogs, Indian corn and naval stores are reported, but quo tations for structural Iron, rice, whis key, tobacco, pork, coffee and sugar are steady. It should be explained that rails are now held at $22, the lowest price of record, and that steel billets and pig iron are,, respectively, 32 and. 31.50 below English ' quotations. At Chicago pig Iron dealers are trying to force an advance, but at St. Louis that market is without life and the price is low. Cottons are weaker since the cut made by a New York house. The de cline in the London and Melbourne wool markets la to get on a parity with American markets. New England wool en mills are generally well supplied with spring orders.

At the, south, Augusta and Jackson ville alone announce any improvement. Mercantile collections are generally fair for the season, except In some of the heayier cotton-growing regions, be ing specially classed as unsatisfactory at Savannah, Birmingham and Galves ton, i There Is more activity in grocer ies at Nashville. Galveston says trade is dull and unsatisfactory. At Charles ton, Chattanooga, Memphis and Atlan ta it is quieter without feature. .From . Cincinnati, Louisville, Detroit and Chicago moderately encouraging reports as to the volume of trade are received. Similar advices are sent out from St. Louis, but there is only a mod erate business at Kansas City and Oma ha; country merchants tributary to those cities" manifesting a disposition to buy more sparingly. Milwaukee Job bers have been rather more active, and early in the.week the like was true at Minneapolis' at Portland, Ore., and at San Francisco. A. stimulating Influence of a purely statistical nature Is the decrease of 2. 008,000 bushels of wheat in the quantity afloat for and In store in Europe last week., thus early - overcoming the in crease of 2,128,000 bushels of wheat available in the United States and Can ada last week.
