Dun & Co.'h Weekly Review ot Trade today says: Notwithstanding the holiday interruption, inventory-taking, preparation of annual reports, and other impediments incidental to the inauguration of 1917, the past week has been far from dull. Consumption of necessities is sustained in noteworthy volume. on the whole, and the purchasing power in many directions la enhanced by the further wage increases tiiat became effective 011 January 1, the new year opening with aggregate pay rolls at the highest point ever known. This obviously acts as an offset to the extreme living costs, though it is not to be expected that demands will continue Indefinitely at the present extraordinary rate. In the leading industries now buying baa lessened, as it 1 invariably docs at this period, and this j year tbure Is all the nioro reason for; some abatement because of the extent to which forward requirements are already covered. Pressure for deliver-! les 011 previous contracts, however, 11UK not relaxed. except In Isolated instances. and producers still ttnd it difficult. if not Impracticable, to mako shipments as scheduled, owing to the transportation congestion. With freight delays causing a lack of fuel at manufacturing plants and a consequent curtailment of outputs, the question of a possible shortage of some materials and products Is being brought to the fore. That there la now even the slightest likelihood of a scarcity of Iron, with production unprecedented last year. Is one of the economic wonders of the times Commercial failures this week In the United States are 12 against 254 Inst week, 28G the preceding week and 481 the corresponding week last year.
