Iron and steel are still reported in rood condition. tSFECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1 New York, -January 31. Special tele grams to Bradstrcet's confirm previously re ported indications of an unexpected check to general trade in January as compared with 1889. California reports decreased wheat acreage aud adverse weather conditions with reference to the next crop. General trade on the Pacific coast has been restricted by 11 weeks of rain and six days' snow blockade of the Central Pacific Railroad. Hats, caps and furs, boots and shoes, clothing and wool have all been unfavora bly affected bv a return of mild weather. Almost all leading trade centers report only a fair volume of business. At New York stocks of hides are heavy and prices are lower. In fact, except fine butter and cotton Roods, steel and the better grades of iron, nearly all staple commodities have de clined in price or have shown a tendency to do so. Kf SPECULATIVE LINES. , The Hew York stock market after the heavy gain of 57,000,000 in bank surplus re serves, promised higher prices and a bullish temper, which appeared promptly on Mon day. But a desire to realize on paper profits resulted in a reaction, ami the market closes heavy and hesitating, with prices lower. In creased earnings of the Pennsylvania sys tem arid of the Deleware and Hudson had a favorable influence, while the withdrawal of Union Pacific and Northwestern companies from the Inter-State Association was ad verse. Honey continues easy, and is ex pected to remain so for some weeks. Bonds are firm and in good demand. The probability of a decline of 50 cents per ton in pig iron prices, with the increased at tention attracted to the enormons produc tion, has been discussed by makers and buy ers. A .ew weaker furnace companies have told at sh .aed figures. Larger makers de mand lull prices. Western steel rail mills have advanced prices 51 per ton, bat report no sales at the advance. Available stocks of wheat, United States and Canada, east of the Rockies, as reported to Bradstreet '.aggregated 52,301,312 bushels January 25, a decrease ou the week of 609, 408 bushels; like corn stocks were 18,430,621 bushels, a gain of 14",29G bushels. Added to stocks afloat for Europe the total of wheat becomes 72,173,312 bushels, 433,408 bushels less than on January 18, and of corn 24, 394.621, or 475,296 bushels more than on January 18. AGRICULTURAL EXPOETS. Exports of wheat (and flour as wheat) from both coasts this week, as reported to Bradstreet's, equal 1,613,35 bushels, against 1.809,500 bushels last week, and 1,192,101 bushels the last week of January, 18S9. Total exports July 1 to date equal 61,817,781 bushels, against 58,282,101 bushels in seven months ot the previous cereal year and 83, 419,825 bushels in a like portion of 1887-88. Wheat flour, with unusually heavy local stocks, estimated at about 1,000,000 barrels and sacks, and continued pressure of sup plies ana lame aemana, is ou ig;i5 cents per barrel. "Wheat has declined ljs12s cents in the week 12 cents at Chi cagoon weaker home and iorcign markets and indifference of exporters. Indian corn, too, has declined sharply J1J cents on dnll cables and dressed export movement. The decline in oats was likewise 1 cents. live aavs' exports of oats from Kew York equal 325,000 bushels. There has been a sharp reaction in hog products led by the west, pork dropping 25(075 cents per barrel and lard S15 points per pound. A light movement in sugar is accom panied by a slight weakening in prices of raw. Full production with a modified de mand for refined at New York resulted in a decline of Jc Kefiners' profits are now estimated c per pound, against a profit per pound a year ago and at other periods. Coffee in jobbing and distributing lines has moved less ireely, aud prices, notably for Brazilian, are off jgc DKYGOODS QUIET. Drygoods have been quiet. New York's trade for January is disappointing. Cotton goods prices are firm, with an advancing tendency, owing to higher cost of raw mate rial. Print cloths prices gained slightly. "Woolens are quiet and clothing dull. Raw wool is dull, with prices tending lower, nota blyon Territory, California and Texas wools. Cotton is less active after a reaction of 1-16 Business failures reported to Bradstreet's are declining in number, amounting to 286 in the United States this week, against 324 last week and 331 this week last year. Can ada had 50 this week, against 59 last week. The total of failures in the United States for the month of January is 1,628, against 1,606 in 1889. K. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: The closing of one considerable hank and two smaller ones, tends to impair public confidence. In other words the news is less favorable this week. The financial pressure at London does not abate, and there are reports that heavy withdrawals of gold for South America or for France will soon be necessary. Foreign exchange here grows stronger, having risen from H 86 to ?4 87J. Sales of bonds have been small, and the Treasury has taken in nearly 51, 200,000 more cash than it has paid out COLLECTIONS SLOW. Tardiness of collections at various in terior points causes more complaint, and the unseasonably mild weather once more de presses many branches of trade. The ex ports lor December proved much larger than had been expected, with an excess of 37, 000,000 over imports. The exports in Jan uary from New York have been smaller than last year by 8J per cent Money at New York is abundant and cheap on call, and the demand for commer cial paper is now strong here and at Phila delphia; at Chicago rates are .unchanged with a fair demand; at St Lonis the market is stronger at 7 to 8 per cent with good de mand; at Cleveland and Milwaukee the market is fairly active with ample supply, and at other western points somewhat easier, with moderate or fair demand. These facts suggest doubt whether large supplies will be available for the East, "if business activity continues. The later indications of business activity are not quite so satisfactory. A heavier movement followed the cold days at Boston, but wool sales were only 2,400",000 pounds, with a market weak and depressed, except for combing and delaine. Goods do not im prove. An unexpected demand has raised domestic hides to "ft cent, but foreign are dull. Leather Is selling more ireely. Phila delphia notes few sales of wool. At Chi cago dealings in grain and meats are large, but in drygoodssomewhat less forthe past two weeks, and the shoe trade shrinks a little. Distribution has been fair at St. Louis, Omaha and Kansas City; very fair at De troit, but dull at Cleveland and depressed again by weather at Milwaukee. XOT TJP TO EXPECTATIONS. From the reports telegraphed it may be inferred that trade since the new year began has not answered expectations, and there are somesigns that the cold, weather is not solely .to blame. In the iron business the mills are fully employed at Cleveland, but sellers make better offers at Pittsburg, and some re ductions occur; and at Philadelphia large lots, which have been hypothecated, have been sold at some concessions, frightening timid buyers. The indications are that ex cess of production begins to be felt In the drvgoods trade the signs noted at Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago are seen here and at other points. The coal trade also continnes much depressed as to anthra cite, though bituminous is active at fair prices. The unsurpassed activity in build ing has made materials strong and active. Wheat is 1 cents lower, with sales of .20,000,000 bushels, corn Vyi cents lower, and oats Hf cents lower for the week. Cot ton is held by speculation, but sales for the week were over 1,000,000 bales, and coffee is unchanged, but oil and pork products are lower In the stock market a considerable advance occurred because of covering short sales, but the bank failure came in to in crease a reaction. The average of prices for stocks is still a little higher than a week ago, and the reports of earnings are highly encouraging. The business failures are 291, as against 330 last week. For the corresponding week of last year the figures were 332. ELEYEJiTJI WARD MEETING. So say we all of us! Salvation Oil is tbe greatest cure on earth for pain. Only 25 cents.

ELECTEIC FOOTLIGHTS. Illn. The B'Jon Perfecting Incandescent ralnnlors. Mr. Frank Carter, gasman at the Bijou Theater, is now at work constructing a system of incandescent footlights which has never been tried in this vicinity before. He will use 76 25-candle power lamps, which will include the pale reds, greens and other shades used in calcinm illumination. The resnlt will, it is expected, give exceedingly brilliant footlighting power. At the same time the old smoky gas system will be for the most part done away with. BLOCK HELD FOR COURT.
