fIATORDAT Eventno, Fob. 7.
The Incronao In tho supply of money in this
market since tho beginning of tho week has boon
quite decided. Tho banks aro carrying a very
largo amount of grain and provisions, and,
therefore, the easier condition of tho market 1b
not so marked with them as In tho open mark ot.
There Is, however, a larger supply of loanable
funds in tho country west of this city than for
several years before. A groat deal of it is being
sent horo for Investment in loans, and tho pros
pect. Is that a reduction in tho rales
of lutorost must bo tho result before
Jong. Tho samo condition of affairs is apparent
in Now York. Prices of stocks have advanced
largely, and Government bonds ooiißidarably,
since last Monday. Tho Now York bank state
ment of to-hight reflects tho revival of specula
tion in stocku by a largo increase of both de
posits and loans.
Now York Exchange was in abundant supply
to-day at 7Do to 800 per SI,OOO discount.

Tho improved feeling in regard to real estate
investments noticed m our article of a week ago
not only continues but increases, and tho predic
tion • made-nearly two mouths' ago that tho
scarcity of other satisfactory investments would
causo a flow of capital to this city for invest
ment iu real estate is being voriUod. Within
tho past week wo have talked with several men
largely interested in real estate who wove fooling
very despondent a month or two ago, but who
now say they are 'convinced that there will bo
great activity aud au advance in prices this
spring. It may bo said that in thoso cases tho
wish is father' to the thought, but it is
at least au evidence of a groat change
iu tho general fooling, that men who
six weeks ago feared a continued depression
and a possible decline in tho prices of real estate,
now fool as confident that tho influx of capital
from abroad is preparing the way for as active a
season in real estate as has been experienced in
some years.
After a panlo money always accumulates in
the hands of capitalists, because they tempora
rily Itiso confidence in tho value of everything
but money. But soon they begin to realize that
hoarded money dwindles away, and when invest
ment in any particular lino decs take a start, It
soon swells to an extia volume, in proportion to
tho previous depression. Tho largo advance in
railroad stocks and the smaller one in Oovorn
mout bonds in tho last week (instance, Hock Island
stock quoted yesterday at 108 against 10-1 at tho
boginning ul' the week) shows that tho accumu
lation of money has continued until capitalists
find that, being unable to lend it, tboy must buy
something in order to use it. Country hankers
and money-lenders from three different quarters
in this Btato during tho past week toll us that
there was never so much money In the country
as now, and that more Is offered for loan on
mortgages of farms than eon ho used. Much
of it lias been, ami is still being, sent
into this city for investment in commercial
paper and mortgages. But tills avenue of em
ployment is already becoming inadequate to tho
supply of money, and oven money-lenders them
selves admit that a decline in the rates of inter
est, outside of banks, is more than probable.
There are plenty of country capitalists who do
not speculate either in railroad stocks or West
ern'products, and for those there seams no in
vestment so attractive as real estate in a city
like Chicago, which must increase in wealth and
population unless tho entire business of tho
country is overturned.
Tho rooti in this city who have been promi
nent os speculators iu roal oatato for soveifd
yooTB past aro doing comparatively Httlo now.—
not bocmißo they have not oonfhionco in tlio
proHpocla of activity, but hooaußo they woro
crippled, firat by tho groat flro, and had not ro
covovod from that when their calculations woro
again upnntby tho panic.
but Hint money in now coming horo from
various quartern, both East and west, wo have
uumorouu ovidfliimi. There is Boarcoly a woll-
Itnown real outale agent in tho oily but to re
ceiving inquiries about thochanccH for Invest
monfc, and accompanied by ofToru of mun» of
money, from capitalists in various parts of tho
country. A good many purchases have already
boon made.

erty transferred in January was $5,700,000.

Tho loading produce markets wore otoadior to
day, tbo variations In prices being Biuali. Grain
was* somewhat firmer, and provlalons qniot.
There waa littlo to affect tbo marlcota from out
ride aourcca, tho iulluoncoa boitig chiclly local;
but tho recent dcclino baa boon such u aovoro
ono bi grain aa to Induce many operators to buy,
on tbo pnuoiplo that “ it ia a long luuo that baa
no turn.” There waa not, however, ko much de
mand aa to cause groat atrongtb, especially aa
tho shipping movemont waa very alow.
Tho dry-goods market waa qutot in moat de
partments, prints and bloacbod cottons alouo
showing anything more than a moderate degree)
of activity. Prices, however, wero firm all
around, wbilo standard staple wroductloua atill
show a tendency to advance. Stocks of domestic
textiles aro light, both in diHlributora’ hands and
at tho aourcca of supply. Consequently, a confi
dent fooling obtains. Thoroworono important
now features to note in connection with
tho grocery market. Tboro waa leas ac
tivity than on aotno of tho previous
days of tbo week, but otherwise tho
situation waa unchanged. CofTcoa and sugars
wore again linn, and Just now aoom to ho tend
ing upward, both of thoao staples being quotod
more active and firmer at tho East, itico is
strong. Sirups, molasses, apices, soaps, Ac.,
remain steady and firm. Tho demand for canned
goods continues to improve, and some linos aro
advancing, owing to inadequate supplies. Dried
fruits wore moving with considerable freedom at
firmly maintained prices. Tbo domand ia now
mainly to suit consumptive wants, but tho
reduced comUlion of tho stocks in
duces a firm feeling, and tho recently
advanced prices aro likely to bo sustained.
Flab continue in active request, and are bold
with‘pronounced 'firmuoas. The advance in
Whitehall, trout, and family mackerel noted
yesterday waa fully sustained, and nemo other
'descriptions seem likely to move in tho aamo
direction. Bagging waa dull, as previously
quotod. Coal waa unchanged in price. Soft
varieties wore selling freely, but uukbraclto was
dull, consumers refusing to order in advance of
current Jroquiromouts. Pig-Iron was iu de
mand at steady rntea. Scotch quotod
firm at [email protected], according to brand.
Leather, tobacco, and wood wore unchanged.
The oil trade exhibited a good degree of anima
tion, and former i|uotationa wore very generally
adhered to. Carbon was not aa strong as on yes
terday, owing to a slight reaction at tho Eaat.
Turpentine was again advanced—now quoted
at 00c.
The country demand for lumber continues
active, and common boards, fencing, and small
timber are very Arm under reduced stocks.
Shingles and lath arc also in good demand and
Arm. Tho trade In hardware and metals was re
ported fair and improving, and quotations aro
maintained for all articles enumerated. Nails
are very active, and Arm, at $*1.25 rales
not. Iron merchants report a fair busi
ness in llioir lino of goods, and
a strong feeling in regard to iron.
Tho broom-corn trade was again reported fair in
tbo aggregate, and all grades aro Ann, particu
larly the lower and medium ones, which aro be
coming scarce under tho steady demand. Wool
was steady and salable to Western mills. Hay
was unchanged, no improvement being noticed
la tlio demand. The trade iu greou fruit is
principally in a local retail way, with occasional
shipments to tho interior on orders. Apples
are tending upward, owing to scarcity,
and cranberries are also Arm, tbo
supply, as usual at this seasons
being very much reduced. Hides wore iu mod
erate request. Tho seed market was quiet, with
tho exception of timothy, which mol with an
improved demand, prices ranging from $2,70(g)
3.00 for common to primo. Potatoes woro scarce
and Arm at tho recent advance. Tho poultry
market was fairly nctivo and steady. Choice
dressed turkeys woro iu request for shipment.
Tho offerings of all descriptions woro fair.
Hggs sold to tho retail trade, strictly fresh being
a shade stronger, owing to light offerings.
lligbwinos woro quiot and steady at tho re

Sales woro reported of 100 brls at Otic per gal
Dressed hogs wore dull and weak at a decline
of 100 per 100 lbs, at SG.CO for heavy, and SO,OO
for light, In car lauds, and sC,4o(ffio.so for do

of the weakness in livo, and holders generally
deferred action till Monday. The market
closed steady. Bates wore reported of 110 at
$0.(10 ; U52 at SO.CS ; BIG at SO.OO :20 at $0.10; 00
at SO.IO. Total, 081 hood.
I'roviniouß wore quiet, with very liltlo change
iu pricoa. Tho active movement of Friday filled
up speculative buyora, ut the eamo lime that it
cleared the market of all lota except thoao iu the

very little produce either wanted orolTered for

Liverpool and Now York wore both reported tint,

showed no particular change In volume, the
rather smaller inspection being not unumul on
Saturday, There wua no shipping demand of
consequence, but a more active speculative in
quiry, which was started by 'Milwaukee operat
ors, and continued by the local shorts. The latter
became afraid that capitalists were about to take
hold of a long lino and cause a radical turn in the
market; and, as they were short too extensively
for safety under such circumstances, they at
once commenced to fill in, making tho market
quite active and stronger. Tho offerings wore,
howovor, more liberal, ns a good many holders
soomod to think that m ibo absence of any Eu
ropean demand there is not much hope of a
speedy Improvement in prices. Seller March

A Midland correspondent of tho Saginaw
Cornier , spoaldcg of oak timber. Rays tho
prices paid aro as high as $25 per 1,000 in tho
tree, and tho cost of hewing in tho woods is
from SSO to $55 per 1,000, T'lio prices paid on
tho track aro about $l5O per 1,000, or S2OO at
Day City, which is tbo shipping point. A<jd to
this $l5O per 1,000 for shipping to Garden
Island, then S7O per 1,000 for rafting and run
ning to Quebec. This makes it at Quebec $420
cost price per 1,000. Add also to this tbo cost
of shipping from Quebec to Europe, your SBO

what it will bring in the European markets.
WnUor Brown, Sou & Co., of Now York, write

During tho first part of tho mouth of January, tho
wool market was comparatively quiet; It being tho
season when manufacturers are engaged In taking
slock, and only purchase wools where their Immediate
requirements make It u necessity. Transactions at
this tlmo were quilo limited, but holders, confident
that tho avuihiblu supplies wore small and could not bo
Immediately replenished, were very firm lu their prices
for all desirable fieccus.
Tho slight demand coming from consumers alono
brought dearly to light tho fact that good conditioned
wools wero really scarce; which, with tho ‘continued
and Increasing ease In (ho money market, has caused a
gradual hardening In tho values of fiecces. As domes
tic wools steadily advanced, manufacturers turned to
other wools for substitutes, they being relatively cheap
er. Of these. Capo wools havo received tlio> most at
tention during (ho month, and at tho close nro quoted
5 percent higher for superior lots than in our last
price current.

Tho woolen goods trade, since tho opening of the
year, has been scarcely satisfactory to manufacturers,
either In tho amount of sales or tho prices obtained.
This has probably retarded tho upward tendency of
tho wool market more than any other ■ cause. At
tho present writing, however, tliero seems to be a bet
ter feeling among dry goods merchants, some of whom
predict a very nctlvo demand for woolens during tho
next thirty days.
Dealers nro now looking forward with considerable
interest to (ho February sales of Colonial wools in
London, feeling that any deficiency there may be lu
our homo supplies will have to ho filled from abroad,
uud that tho vnluo of nil classes of clothing wools in
American markets will bo somewhat alfcctcd by tho
cost of wools imported from England.
California and Texas wools have beqn in good re
quest throughout tho month, and as many manufac
turers havo learned that tiie judicious use of these
wools, In connection with Western' fleeces, tends to
cheapen the coat of production of Una goods, they
havo very naturally Improved proportionately with
other wools.
While wo consider tho tendency of tho market is
still slightly upward, wo think, unless there Is a
marked improvement in goods, tbero will not bo any
material change In tho value of the raw material dur
ing tbo next few weeks, and, us it Is not desirable to
carry llcocos over to another season, wo are of opinion
that those still holding wools in tho Interior wilt con
sult their Interests by sending them forward to bu
placed on the market.
