JRailrnart Earning Still Show a SatlSUC- tory Increase, IXGL1KD BUIIXG AUEEICAfi PIG IBOK. VTwieM Fipe is Bold to be Sow Hijher Ortr the Atlintic Thin Here According to the reports to Bradstreet't and ft. G. Dan & Co., general trade has been depressed.by the long run of phenom enally mild weather. Several features have combined to force up speculative prices, however. Iron is still enjoying a boom. ttnCWL TXXEQBAM TO THI DIS? JLTCK.1 New York, December 20. Special tele grams to Bradslreet's show a noticeable de crease in the volume of general merchandise distributed, larzely on account of the un seasonably mild or wet weather. Through out the west, the scarcity of freight cars, low prices for produce and the fact that many merchants have on hand large por tions of last winter's stock, in addition to the weather, have contributed to check trade, and complaints are heard from Chi cago, St Paul, St Joseph, Omaha, Kansas City, St Louis, as well as at the larger eastern cities. The declaration of 2 per cent regular and 1 per cent extra dividends by Lake Shore and by Micigan Central, and one of 2 per cent by Omaha yesterday, aided by contin ued heavy railway earning, the settlement of the Iowa railway troubles, the termina tion of the Missouri Pacihc and Missouri, Kansas and Texas controversy, and the in creased earnings report of the New York Central quite overcame the depressing ef fects of irregular money markets and the untavorable condition of the coal trade yes terday, and the "Wall street stock market was enlivened by a bull movemenin which the Gould andVauderbilt shares showed the greatest strength, even the Coalers and the trusts shared. COTTOV ASS WHEAT. Bradstreet's 2,239 cotton correspondents report a crop this year i per cent larger tney did last year. If the actual yield this year increases correspondingly as comoared with last, the indicated view lor lsw-yu is t,zu, 000 bales. Exports ot wheat (and flour as wheat) "are increasing rapidly, the total for both coasts beine 2,872,021 bushels this week, against 2.471.21C bushels last week and 1,487,720 bushels in the like week of 38SS. The total exports July 1 to date amount to 50,195,622 bushels, a quantity about equal to that exported in a like por tion or 1888, and as compared with 73,000, 000 bushels in 1887. Special reports of net railway earnings of 101 companies for October show a gain of 17 per cent as compared with 1888, and of 89 companies for ten months ended with October, 1889, an increase of 16 per cent Recent advances in iron and steel are re garded with some apprehension, the trade showing symptoms of crowding into the market for supplies for season delivery. In stead of crossing into 1890 at $20 for No. 1 pig iron, it may thus become a price in ex cess of that figure. J. FXXB PEOSPECT AHEAD. A general advance through January and February isnot unlikelv. Cleveland prices of superior ores are at 56, Bessenier pig is at $25, and Southern pig. Chicago delivery for 1890:-is announced at $19 T520 25. Heavy contracts ot Bessemer iron have been placed. Merchant bars is now at 2 cents. Steel Tails are firmer at $35; with 1889 shipments ag gregating 1,110,017 tons,abont eqnal to those in 1888. Gross rail production lor 1889 will eqnal 1,500,000 tons. Wheat and' oats hive been higher in price, the former 13JJc and the latter 14 14Jc Deliveries ot wheat at interior cities have declined, and cables have been stronger. Offerings of oats have been re stricted. Indian corn on a freer interior movement and iavorable weather conditions is down c. Fork is more active at concessions in price and lard is a little easier. Offerings of raw sugars have been beyond current needs and prices have ruled easy. Eefincd is quiet and c lower. The result of speculative transactions in coffee is a net decline of 35 points on the week. In trade cliann .s'coflee, is dull or depressed and about c lower. DBYT GOODS LOWER. The movement of staple drygwds is mod erate at New York and Boston, and leading makes of 'brown and bleached cottons ire V,' to X cent higher, while print cloths nave declined 1-lb. Uold weather is needed to enliven heavy weight woolens; raw wool isia iair request at steady prices. . Business lailures repotted to Bradstreet't number 330 in the'TJnited States this week, against 370 last week and 335 this week last year. Canada had 34 this week, against 23 last week. The total of failures in the United States January 1 to date is 11,353, against 10,082 in 1888. K. G. Dun & Co.'s review says: Mild weather causes increasing trouble.' Perhaps the coal trade suffers most; .many collieries in Pennsylvania have stopped, throwing over 4,000 men out ot employment and great suffering results. The drygoods aud boot and shoe trades are much affected. Cottons are "only fair" at many Western points; "hardly "satisfactory" at Cleveland, and un pleasantly slow at Milwaukee, where much excitement is caused by a heavy failure at Fan du Lac, and small failures have be cornlTalarmiiigly freqnent ANOTHER FEATURE. In some Southern States trade is seriouslv affected for the time by the operation of the Farmers' Alliance, which enlists farmers in co-operative trading and, absorbs money which might otherwise go to settle indebted ness with merchants. The results, in some localities, almost paralyze trade. But the general tenor ot reports is by no means un favorable. The volume of trade continues larger than a year ago. Clearings outside ot New York are still about 10 per cent larger than last year. Railroad earnings show a handsome increase. The iron business seems a shade less promising:. Recent sales of 60,000 tons of Bessemer pig at $21 50, are supposed to have supplied needs of large concerns, and with additional furnaces turned to production of this kind of iron, the future ot prices is less clear. Rails are quiet flnd it is believed that orders have been booked already for 700,000 tous delivery,-but next year; the actual output this year, including light rails, it believed to be 1,450,000 -tons, .against 1,364,447 last year. Bar iron, has been advanced to 2 cents by the association, bnt is quiet; plate and structural iron tire firm. ESOLAJTD JL PURCHASER. As a surprising reversal of the usual order ol thinirs, it is noted that an English order for 10,000 tons of pig iron has been received with a margin of $4 per ton deposited, and an English house has asked prices on 65,000 feetof wrought iron pipe, which is said to "b- selling at 11 cents net, ngalnst 8.C3 cents net in this country. The exports in iJovember appear to have exceeded those of last year by nearly or quite $30,000,000; but since December 1 the export trade has been a little smaller. Money is still close here at 6 per cent on call; comparatively easy al Cleveland; un changed, but with liberal demand, at Chi cago; close at Kansas City, but in sufficient snrjnlv for legitimate business at Wntmi aud Southern points generally. The Treas ury has made heavy disbursements, so that it -holds $5,200,000 less cash -than a week ago, and foreiiro. -exchange has 'advanced ah eighth .during the week. The generallerel di prices nag scarcely coaugeo. , . rA;ui.jS.xivis in n nn. r.xa. :etsnave been., com paratively dull. Only &000.000 bnihels of wheat have been sold here, the price ad vancing about 1 cent, and the change thus far has been less thaawould ' naturally fol low the close of navigation. Sales of corn hsve been 5,500,000 'bushels, with a frac tional decline, but oats are a shade stronger. Pork has dropped 25 cents per barrel, and lard a shade; oil is .Jf cent lower; with sales of only 1,000,000 barrels for the week. Coffee c lower with sales of 331,000 bags. Though receipts and exports ot cotton both fall a little below those of the corresponding week last year, the price is unchanged. In the stock market dullness has been fol lowed by fc stronger tone. The business failures number 342. For the corresponding week of last year the figures were 311. . THE ABSOLUTE PERFECTION Of the Hardman and lbs Krakauer Pianos. They are used by the best musicians, cul tivated amateurs and people of intelligence generally. The charm of the mechanism and tone of these two makes of pianos cap tivates all who hear them. Even those who have been wedded for years to other instru ments must acknowledge, if they are honest, that the Hardnian and Krakaner makesare the peers of them all.

Coal Hen No Looser Fraying for Cars, bnt -Good, Eonnd Orders. THE COZE SHIPMENTS AEE YERIHEAYX Why January Will 'Throw Many Cars and Furnaces Into Idleness. There are more flat or open cars now than the local Tailroads can find use for. The warm weather and decreased demand for coal are the causes. Coke shipments, how ever, are still heavy. There will be more cars yet idle in January, when many of the blast furnaces blow out . "Well, the car famine isAbout over, and for a few -weeks, at least, we will hear no more of the chestnut about 'how soon will, we get those cars.' " said General Freight Agent F. A. Dean, of the Pittsburg and Lake Erie Bailroad. "Yesterday was the first day we had more cars than we could possibly find use for. The Surplus is not so great that the cars will not be pressed into service, bnt at some points we had too many. It will take several days to dis tribute them properly, and we expect then to have enough for all practical purposes. "When I say that we have lots of cars I do not mean box or merchandise cars. We have a surplus of coal and coke cars, bnt the others are still scarce, althongh we have no complaints about not getting them. We are still receiving parts of the order for 500 cars being built at Indianapolis and La fayette. We are sending on our line about i 4oo cars 0f coai a3d cote each day. COAL MEN IK HABD LUCK. "The coal men have turned their atten tion from cursing the railroad companies, and are now complaining about the warm weather. They cannot get any orders now on account of the winter being so backward. Formerly they had the orders, but could not eet the cars. Now thev can get the cars, but no orders. There is a big demand for slack from the furnace men in the Mahon ing and Shenango valleys. The. article is scarce and hard to get It only costs about half as much as lump coal, and isjnstas good for manufacturing purposes as the large coal. The shipments are still very heavy, notwithstanding the fact that there are plenty of cars. I suppose after the holi days business will-brace up again." Air official in the office of the General Superintendent of Transportation, Joseph Wood, of the Pennsylvania company, said: "Yes, the car famine is about at an end. We have a few surolns cars, and I notice that the number is increasing daily. There is still a crying demand for cars in the West to be used in the gram trade. The ship ments of grain still continue to be very heavy, witb no sign of a let np. MORE IDLE CAES. "In January I expect to see many more idle cars. In that month the furnaces blow out for repairs, and shut off a great J amonnt of freight Alter being blown in the heavy shipments will resnme, and the business will again be heavy bv spring. From the present indications I think next season will be a big one in the railroad busi ness." Another official of the Pennsvlvania lines Lsaid: "The rush is about over, and for the first, time in months we have more cars than we can use. At some points along our lines it is impossible to get the kina of cars wanted as soon as they are ordered. In another week I think, there will be more cars of all kinds than can be used. We have been as far as 200 cars behind in our orders per day, but now have caught up." The reports sent to Freight Agent Dean show the shipments of coketo be on the in crease. Far the first two" weeks of this month,six days per week there were shipped 13,327 cars of coke to Pittsburg and the West On the 19th inst there were shipped to Pittsburg, Bessemer and the West, 733 carloads. About 300 cars went east the same day. It is safe to say tbat the east and west will average the past week from 1,200 to 1,500 cars per day. GENUINE SEAL SHINS. The People' Store, Fifth A Tonne.

If you know the goods you have a key to the speeches about it. One house talks ex travagantly about common clothino;. Another, whose goods are reliable, says less about them than they would be justified. The same rule holds about prices. One makes a speech that you wonder at about re ductions in price. Another, whose prices are always low, tells quietly about making them lower still. The one uses showy phrases; the other, effective, plain talk. We believe you are always ready to accept our speeches .about Wanamaker Clothing at par. We mean just what's said, and give what's promised full value.
