NEW YORK, June 8.— Bradstreet's Financial
Review to-morrow will say: Dullness and
speculative hesitation have increased to such
an extent that the only word . applicable to
the market this week. Is stagnant. The public
Is .practically out of the proceedings and the
stocks on. the New York board represent in
the main an exchange . of contracts between
the smaller professional operators. The Lon
don market was slightly stimulated at ! the
beginning of the week by the news that the
British army had occupied . Pretoria, but this
Influence did not last long or result' In any
decided buying of American stocks for foreien
account. On the contrary the bullish news
from South Africa was promptly nullified bv
the threatening aspect of affairs In China and
by the heavy fall of values and money market
pressure. that have developed In Berlin, makln?
that city something of a storm center in the
financial world. In fact the foreign influences
were adverse and seemed to have considerable
to do with the prevalent disposition of our
own market to wait the course of events The
fact that foreign exchange holds steady with
its recent decline is a favorable circumstance
and relieves New York : from the ; danger of
gold withdrawals unless the pending coniDl!
cations at Berlin should grow Into a panic—
rather an unlikely contingency. Meantime the
decreased activity of trade in various- lines
and the shutting down of manufacturing -es
tablishments Influenced the financial ultuation
by causing idle money to flow and accumulate
Et New York. Distinct ' evidence of this has
been afforded by the bank statements of the
last two Saturdays and in the increasing ease
of money as reflected in the demand for and
high prices of prime bonds and the dividend
paying railroad - stocks. Such securities and
large amounts of mere speculative stocks also
have accumulated - In strong • hands « and there
seems, to be no general distribution of. specu
lative holdings ;ln quarters where liquidation
• would be the result of -continued dullness, or
effective bearish pressure. Railroad earnings
continue to make, favorable comparisons -with
the figures of a' year ago. 'and It Is, thought
that, the contraction, of the. activity and -the
reduction of prices In the iron trade have reme
died the situation in' that quarter and that
a. turn for the better Is likely to be seen.'- The
facts seem to be that' the public • and street
are both • Influenced by the slacking of ¦, trade

NEW YORK, June 8.— R. G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade to-morrow will say:
The adjournment *of Congress after a success
ful session, the progress toward peace in South
Africa and the rapid adjustment of prices here
to a more natural level tend to bring nearer
the day of greater activity. But progress
has not been rapid, and the yielding of prices
affects many as a reaction, cutting off part
of the profits supposed to have been secured.
The impression grows also that no extensive
changes in business are >, now probable until
after the Presidential election and the pos
sibility of trouble In China has at least as
definite an Influence on American affairs as
any change in South Africa. The unsettled
condition of labor controversies, moreover,
operates strongly lor the, time to limit ex
pansion of domestic business. • Yet the volume
of business Is so large that a few months of
waiting could not excite any apprenenslon.
It is but a few days since a prominent Iron
master'overwhelmed doubts and questions by
the positive declaration that any decline what
ever In the price of iron this year was simply
Impossible, yet anthracite -No. 1 has declined
J4 25 per ton and this week the Bessemer As
sociation has reduced Its price at Pittsburg
$4 60 per ton and the Southern makers $2 per
ton. The decline in ratio of prices of pig iron
from 112.7 in January to 93.6 this week and
in the- finished products from 9S.05 to 80.01
does "not In fact show the entire change, as
'the steel and wire companies' guarantee of
prices In case of further reduction respecting
products not then shipped is In effect a con
cession. A few large contracts are reported,
but the new business Is so small that many
works are stopping or reducing their force. The
minor metals and coke are weaker. Petroleum
r>as again been reduced to $7 So, against $9 90
April 4, and rubber to 86c. against $1 04 In
March. Silk and hemp are both lower. Wooh
has not declined further, but Is weak and In
small demand, many of the mills having in
adequate orders for goods. Still more Im
portant Is the fall in cotton to JS SI. against
$9 87 a month ago, which Is also due In part
to restricted demand for goods at the ad
vanced prices asked. The statement often
made that the textile mills are running full
time does not appear accurate; the production
is heavy but by no means full. Mldos have
declined further this week, both packer hides
at Chicago and dry hides here, and the de
cline in this important material has been over
20 per cent, while In leather it has not aver
aged S per cent. The boot and shoe, manu
facturers maintain that they cannot accept
lower prices than those they have asked until
leather yields much more and the closing of
many works Indicates that the embarrassment
Is serious.
The rise of 2Mc in wheat, attributed to In
juries threatening a short movement next fall,
affected stocks also somewhat. Exports do not
materially change, having been for the first
week of June from Atlantic ports, including
flour, 2.805,261 bushels, against 1.849,373 bushels
last year: from Pacific ports, 591,015 bushels,
against 623,400 bushels last year. Receipts of
both wheat and corn have fallen, considerably
below those of last year, though not as yet
enough to indicate a sense of scarcity in in
terior supplies. ' ,: . nn . ,
Failures for the week have been 206 in the
United States, against 159 last year, and 19 in
Canada, against 10 last year.

WHEAT— The market seems to be working
Into better shape all over the world.
Liverpool and Paris were both . higher. The
condition of the Russian crop was reported
satisfactory, but not flattering.
Chicago was very bullish and Corn advanced
on Increased speculation and a good shipping
demand. Wheat eased oft somewhat on pre
dicted showers in the Northwest, but a reliable
Minneapolis dealer wired a damage of 50 per
cent In the Northwest, with rain needed to
save the balance of the crop. Subsequently
the market became excited and irrejirular. with
holders selling freely. but repurchasing on
every break. The weather continued unfavor
able, with Increasing complaints from the
Northwest. The condition of the Kansas crop
was given at 101.
The local market advanced again, both on and

Local Forecast Official

I shares was coincident with the deliberations of
the committee appointed by the presidents of
W*>stern railroads to concoct a plan for di
vision of traffic cave force to the supposition
that the prospect for a satisfactory settlement
is net very good. Faillnp In such a settlement
there is Mtiti to be a likeiihood of a widespread
and costly rate war. Coming In combination
with the- bad reports from the wheat country,
this Fcrvcd to effectually break the market and
price* went to pieces In the last half hour of
the trading:, the weakness Fpreading from the
Grangers, Pacifies and Southwestern into the
. trunk lines and specialties and embracing the
wholo list. This break came after a day cf
I-ersister.t dullness and lrrejjular fluctuations
in prices. The Incident immediately preceding
the brtak was an advance of over a point in
Iteauir.g first preferred, with confident absorp
tion of very large offerings. The second pre
ft-rrtd was all wiped out in the final break. An
increase in the earnings of Northern Pacific of
-S per cent for the fourth week in May did
not avail to save that stock from the break on
the unfavorable crcp prospects and it fell two
points. Mi-nourl 1'aciflc and Baltimore and
Ohio showed weakness before the general break
on general fears of disappointment regarding
dividends. There was a relaxation of the pres
sure en foreign markets, due to apprehension
ever the trouble in China, ar*i London bought
stocks here to a moderate extent,- causing some
Flight rains early in the day. The preliminary
estimates of the bank statement ficrure out a
small loss in cash owing to ths week's heavy
to f3.117.O"U > all on account of the cajl by the
Treasury of Government deposits in the banks.
The estimate* of receipts from the interior are
slightly In excess of those made last Friday,
but it was remembered that last Friday's esti
mates foil rhort by $1,500,000 of the actual re
ceipts, so that a rain in cash In to-morrow's '
statement would not be surpri?ing. The mar- !
ket <-los«-d active and. weak at about the lowest.

CHICAGO, June's.— July wheat opened at 71®
71V4e, a flat Jump from yesterday's close of
[email protected] Then began a trade which." in excite
ment and , volume exceeded even yesterday's,
when traders were referring to the days of the
Lelter deal for comparisons. The advance was
occasioned by the fact. that the Northwest was
still without rain." Realizing sales were
heavy, however, and July, following the open-
Ing, declined to 7054c. Then the pressure of
buying orders, bunches of which every man In
the pit seemed to have in the greatest plenty,
came to .the aid of the market and July shot
up to 71%c. Lots, which during the refent
dullness would have caused a' break In prices,
were absorbed without * a tremor. At this
point the .Weather Bureau announcement of In
dications of 6howers for, the Northwest Satur
day caused some cessation In the buying and
the takers of profit forced July gradually back
to 7054c The dip, however, merely gave the
buyers a breathing spell, | for at the price
quoted they Jumped Into the pit with renewed
vigor. Northwestern interests bought enor
mous quantities, as did Influential locals.
Some who went short early upon the theory
that the advance of yesterday would in the
natural course of things be followed by a
reaction covered, this aiding in the advance.
Trading during the last hour was very heavy.
July climbed up to 72%c and closed 2%c Im
proved at 72%@72%c. Cables were strong. The
spring wheat territory reported the crop situa
tion becoming more "critical. High winds
and sand yesterday, it was said, did further
damage to the North Dakota crop. Through
out the entire session the Northwest bought
persistently and heavy. Naturally there was a
great deal, of liquidating, but the small part
the Northwest took in this was notable and a
factor In the spurt which came when the ses
sion came to a close.
Corn was dull and easy during . the first
of the advance in wheat, but became very ac
tive later. The pit had been deserted in favor
of wheat until some buying. orders brought out
the fact that there was little for sale. In a
few minutes July went up over a cent a bushel
and once started the shorts were not to be de
nied. July sold between 3S%@40%e. closing 1&
@l%c improved at [email protected]»c.
Oats, like corn, lagged early, but later
braced up and closed strong. Trade was light.
July closed Vic better at 22c.
The provisions market was firm In sympathy
with wheat and corn. The .opening was firm.
There was a fair demand, but offerings in the
pit were fairly liberal. July pork closed 7V4C
over yesterday, July lard 5c higher and July
ribs [email protected]>c better.

fesslonal operators while trying several times

hour when highest prices of the session were
attained. Crop damage reports from spring
wheat States are undoubtedly very bullish, but
there Is some question as to whether the ad

ment was strongly in favor of higher prices,

tion. The unfavorable development in' the crop
outlook at -the Northwest has also been a
factor, r while the continued weakness of the
steel stocks and the closing of more i mills
with lower quotations for . the products of the
iron industry aid in holding »peculatlve senti
ment in comple'te- check. , At the same time
the floating supply of stocks is small, the

Bradstrcet's on Trade.
NEW YORK, June 8.— Bradstrect's to-mor
row will say: New business at wholesale Is
of a between-statlons character, but warmer
weather has offered a stimulus to retail busi
ness in some sections. Chief activity and
most attention are, however, still' concentrated
on the price situation and efforts to readjust
quotations to meet current demand and supply
conditions go forward steadily. Tha exception
to the general downward trend of prices Is
that furnished by leading farm products,
notably cereals, but here the moving cause Is
hardly favprable, being the result of less satis
factory crop reports, particularly from the
Northwest, and It Is to be noted that advices
from the Central West, where the winter
wheat ' yield promises to be very short, are
also less favorable. The Northwest has had
someraim, but, it Is claimed, not enough to
render the situation free of danger. Corn crop
conditions remain favorable, as likewise do
those of oats, . but the grain and hog products
have sympathized In the upward movement
of wheat,- which has at last broken from Its
lethargy and Is again attracting speculative
attention. Foreign crop advices, It might be
added, are not nattering. The German rye
crop promises to be very short; the same re
port comes regarding French wheat, and Eng
lish crop advices are not of the best.
If, as has been claimed, lower prices for
Iron favor an Increased consumption, current
developments In this trade may be classed as
favorable because concessions are being stead
ily made In nearly every branch of trade. The
price of Bessemer pig and steel billets for
the last half of 1900 1 has been agreed upon,
the result being a drop of 16 per cent In pig
iron and of 20 per cent In billets from the. old
nominal quotations, which, however, have not
been closely adhered -to of late. Southern Iron
advices are of shading In quotations in sym
pathy with similar action taken at Pittsburg.
Chicago and other iron market*. Prices at
Birmingham are now on a parity with those
of Europe, freight charges considered, and
here, as In the North, . the possibility of. labor
tests Intrudes Itself.
Cotton is slightly, weaker. Cotton goods are
dull. Wool is dull and on the whole slightly
weaker' at Eastern markets. Men's wear
goods reorders are of fair volume, while mills
engaged on women's wear goods are fairly well
employed. The outlook favors lower prices for
the new spring weights. ¦
Little that Is new comes from the shoe busi
ness. Leather Is dull and 1 rather weak^ Price
shadlngs are reported the rule in lumber and
this,- coupled '¦ with low water In the North
west, it is hoped may restrict new production.
Surplus visible wheat supplies are decreas
ing rapidly, lending Interest to current un
favorable crop reports. The decrease In Amer
ican stocks, as reported to Bradstreet'a in
May, was 1.1,330.000 bushels, ncrtlnst a falling
off of 0,033,000 bushels In April. Supplies In
Europe, Australia and Argentina also de
creased, though to "a much less marked extent
and the result Is an aggregate world's sup
ply on June 1 of 143.SS3.O0O bushels, a supply
of 15.665,000 bushels less than on May 1, and
comparing with a decrease in May a year ago
of less than" 1,000,000 bushels, and two years
ago of an increase of nearly 2,oCfl,000 bushels.
The decrease In American and European sup
plies is the largest reported In any month
since 1S9S, and Is the largest reported In May
since 1S95.
- Business failures number 184, as compared
with 135 last week, 178 In this week a year
ago, 221 in 1838, 216 In 1S97 and 274 In 1898.
There were 96 failures in Canada in May.

one from Australia. 31C2 tons: total. BLS1 tons.
The liberal- deliveries this week will provide
generously for all immediate requirements ami
reave a small quantity over to be yarded. The
engagement list of Coal carriers from Australia
Is enlarging, as there are forty-seven vessels
chartered, with a carrying capacity of 113,000
tons. - There are fifty-one vessels listed from
there for Honolulu, with 87.000 tons. This evi
dences an Influx of Colonial fuel later in the
year, nnd it will come to a good market, aa
there la none here In Jobbers' hands at present.
All that Is leading has already passed out of
first hands. The extreme rates new being of
fered for outward grain carriers shouM leal to
liberal shipments from foreign sources, but ton
nape is wtarce in all Australian ports. Freight
rates from 'the coast on Coal remain firm, aa
Alaska is utilizing all the disengaged tonnage
for the moment; a few months hence this de
mand must diminish, and will ai.l shipments
here from British Columbia and Washington.
Prices remain unchanged and the demand la
brisk. The loading 1 or English and Swansea
products hss almost come to a standstill, as
the cost of Coal at these shipping poinu makes
It almost prohibitory."
