Dun & Co Weekly Review of Trade saysi Though business Is still waiting, ther are soma signs of dcf.nito Improvement. It Is now believed that the first payment for bonds will cause no further pressure and the money markets are easier as respects loans on collateral, though tho difficulty of making commercial loans still checks operations. Hut largo maturities at the end of January havo been met more sat isfactorily than was expected and mer chants and bankers report that the signs promlso a pood spring trade. No Increase appears as yet in tho demand for the prin cipal products, unless for some forms of Iron and steel. In which good contracts have been made this week. Uncertainty as to congressional action still affects both Industries and commerce, but tho increase In inquiry and the reports of dealers are deemed assurance of large trado coming whenever tho uncertainty is over. Iron and Steel Improve. Signs of improvement In the iron and Steel business aro gratifying, even though they spring from combinations which havo raised the pHee of coke and allotted the output of lake iron ore. There Is also a better demand for wire nails after long stagnation, and also for sheets. Pig-iron is weaker; southern works are competing sharply, whilo speculative buyers of some months ago are celling below present fur nac prices, but the average for all prod ucts is practically uiuh.mged and li.4er cent. U-lo tho highest last ye.ir. Coke production has again been cut down Id, tons in a single week. Minor metals aro strengthened a shade by speculation. Tho cotton mills arc discussing curtail ment in production, us piods continue weak, with an output largely exceeding distribution, though the week has brought considerably morn Inquires and a larger spring trade is still hoped for. Woolen I'raetlrully Unchanged. Woolens are practically unchanged, as each passing week of open weather di minishes the prospect of profitable busi ness, while jobbers, clothiers and retailers havo considcr.il stock of heavy goods re maining.
