THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 1889.
THE FUTURE HOPEFUL Easiness Continues Rather Stagnant, But ttradstreet's See A VEBY FAVORABLE PROSPECT. Speculation in Abeyance Dnrinjr the Big Eailroad Jleetinj. BARRE1TS SUGAR TKUST DECISION Will naTC Xe remanent J fleet. According to E. G. Sua & Cl's Kciicw. Reports to Bradstreet's show the trade is generally dull. This, however, is natural at this season, and an improvement is ex pected. The railroad meeting quieted spec ulation. "Wheat and grain are somewhat lower. K. G. Dun & Co do not look for any marked decrease in the price of sugar. tSrECIXL TELEGRAM TO TUt DISPATCn.1 Xew Yoke, January 11. Although special telegrams to Bradstreet's from lead ing trade centers do not indicate any very general improvement in business, dullness is the natural accompaniment of annual stock-takinc, and the reaction from the pe culiar activity of the holiday season now is merely a wholesome development. It is yet too early for widespread or decided activity to appear, hut at 'ew Orleans there has been a marked increase in the movement of Ftaple goods to the interior as well as of cot ton to market. At Burlington commercial travelers are starting out, and at Boston some revival in several lines is already apparent, notably in drygnods. At Chicago general trade is ex pected to increase with colder weather, after the middle of the month. Business is only fairly active at the Xorthwest, ana has been checked at Kansas City and St Joseph by mild v cather. Reports from the white pine districts tributary to Chicago indicate a shortage in the log crop of 18S9. Industrial conditions are less satisfactory than last week, as strikes have been quite numerous, embracing a large num ber of employes. Wage disputes are becoming more prominent. SLIGHT IMPROVEMENT. Stock speculation was quiescent while the great railroad settlement was in progress. Prices are improving a little, but public opin ion seems to depend upon a fuller development of the effect and probable success of the com pact. Bonds aro Ann and hither, thouch an- ticipated defaults caused declines in a few classes. Money at XcwYork is easier. Call loans 3S4 per cent Foreign exchange is dull aud lower on the easy money market at Lon don and the lowering of tho 'Bank of England rate. Demand sterling, $4 8SJil SS. Bank clearings at 40 cities reporting to Brad stricts this week, aggregate JLtiS9,2Ki,00u, against SU04.107.S62 last week, and i9f2,(i2iWS in the second week of January, IbisS This shows a gain of 9.7 per cent oTer the record a ear ago, but a decline of 1.3 per cent from last week. The wheat and flour markets have been duller, with reactions in price this week, wheat declining 2Jc per barrel and flour 5gl0c per barrel. The exports, both coats. have equaled 144.3S3 barrels of flour and 1.033.139 bush els of wheat the equivalent of 1.C32.3&5 bushels of wheat last week and 1,857,309 bushels iu the like week in 1ESS. There wero but 54,700 bush els from four Atlantic ports this week, against over 97,000 bushels last week. Facinc coast shipments for the week ended Januarj 10 aggregated SITS, 451 bushels, and in the preceding week only 511,237 bushels, and 350,042 bushels in the becondweck of January, ibSS, Stocks of ts heat at points of accumula tion In Australia, as cabled Bradstreet's, ag gregated 3,123,000 bushels on January 1. At the interior, in farmers and dealers hands, there are additional, but not large stocks of old wheat The crop now being harvested in Australia will probably not yield more than 4,000,000 bushels, sufficient only for colonial consumption and seed. DECLINE I3T SUGAR. Raw sugars close at Jf ew York and San Fran cisco HCgc lower on bearish foreign advices (and heavy receipts on the Pacific coast) with light demand, and only fairly free meltings in this country. Brazilian advices aro for 0,000 tons shortage in exports against last year. Re fined lias been VMz lower, closine steady. At "Sew Orleans, however, sugar prices are firmer. Somewhat heavy arrivals of Rio and Santos served to offset the bullish tendency in coffee prices, based on advices from most for eign markets. The decline has been from Cotton mill agents report a slightly improved demand for goods at firm prices. Leading lines of fancy prints range at last season's prices. A tendency to curtail discounts in ginghams is noticeable, and this feature tends to delay operations. Print cloth is taken as fast as offered, bnt prices are unchanged. Woolen goods note an Increased inquiry. The season's prices for casimcres are not yet fixed. Higher prices for heavy weight goods tend to render business slow. Raw wool is in moderate demand and firm, with stock small The feature in the iron trade is the cut of half cent per pound, or til 20 per ton. In beams, with the option of either iron or steel, to stimulate con sumption. Steel rail mills have but little ti ork; not a single heavy order this week. Lake Su perior ore looks weak. Business failures reported to BradttreeVs number 337 In the United States this week, against 2b6 last week and 312 this week last j ear. Canada had 2S this week, against 22 last week. The total of failures in the United States January 1 to date is i$ ac amst C05 two full weeks in 18S8. BUSINESS NOT BRISK. But the Feeling of Confidence in the Financial Fulnre Is Unshaken. New York, January 11. R. G. Dnn A Co.'s weekly review of trade says: Not the least im portant feature of the railroad presidents' ar rangement is the fact that bankers of large in fluence commit themselves, in case the compact is signed, to refuse their countenance or aid to the negotiation of securities for new competing lines or extensions, where either of the railroads agreeing to the compact objects. The report of the Inter-State Commission shows that on 120 -000 miles of road, for the year ending June 30, I8SS. the stock and bonds were of equal oar value, but on 52K Per cent of the stock no dlvi- dend was paid, at d on 20 per cent of the bonds no interest while the proportion paving less than 4 per cent was 63 per cent of the stock and 21 per cent of the bonds. The decision of Judge Barrett, holding that the Sugar Trust is illegal, is of very large im portance. No change occurs as vet in prices of fcugara, and it may not be premature to suppose that other forms of agreement escaping the legal objections found in this case, may not con tinue to control markets. There are signs in Europe that the Copper Trust is trving to cast upon the public part of -its accumulating lead through the organization of a copper bank. Speculation in hogs and lard has tended to ward lower finances. Another fall in wheat has occurred, the price closing lc lower for the week, exports being still arrested. Corn fell lKc.and oats advanced nearly 1c, with oil practically unchanged and cotton a shade stronger. The weekly output or anthracite and coke Iron January 1 was 142,452 tons, against 106.027 a month ago. and 121,307 a year ago. For the past year the production is estimated at 6.500,000 gross tons. The enormous supply makes the market duller than usual for the season. In the railmarket no change is reported. The de mand for bar iron is somewhat improved and 1.80 to 1.85 is quoted for tho best refined. The coal trade is very dull, and the restriction of output is now so f ar entorcca that tho record for the last week of December was only 471.-S-J2 tons. In the wool trade the demand is not large, bnt prices are firmly held in the belief that stocks are scarce. Cotton goods are in better demand at steady or improving prices. Sales in specu lative markets have been small during the past week, and the general tendency of prices for commodities as a whole is Etill downward. Reports from interior towns show that fail ures continue numerous and the complaints of ordinary collections frequent But there is hardly any complaint of monetary scarcity. The Treasury holds about $5,100,000 less cash than it did a week ago, and at present appre hensions of gold exports are lessened by heavy exports of merchandise. The money market hero i6 easier and rates lower than a week ago, and the feeling of confidence in the financial and commercial future is still unshaken. The failures during the last seven das num ber 351, as against 3S7 last week and 229 the week previous. For the corresponding week of last year the figures were 279. Marvin's Milk Brend.
