A Marked Improvement Over What 1 Wns Ono Year Ago. New York, Sopt. 20. R. G. Dun & Company's weokly roviowof trado saya: Special inquiry has boon made this week at all commercial centers regard ing tho state of retail trado. Wido di versity appears in different trades. Tho main facts disclosed aro, first, marked improvement within tho past month aud a considerable oxcess over tho busi ness done a year ago, particularly in the necessaries of lite. But second, it appeals that tho volume of trado at present is on tho wholo considerably less than in a normal year at most points, and in tho moro important trades is apparoutly about 20 per cent smaller than in September, 1892. Evidence of continued improvement in wholesale trade and manufacture does not appear this week. Thero is largo distribution on orders given some time ago, but now business going to the manufacturers is everywhere slacken ing. Tho completion of orders for re plenishment of stocks loaves a narrower demand, and it is yet too early for con sumption to provide further orciors. Tho depression in prices of farm prod ucts will havo somo influence. Unpre cedented records havo been mado in cot tou aud wheat, though as to wheat only in contracts for futuro delivery, in which the prices are the lowest over made. The available stocks aro about 15,0U0,00U bushels greater than u year ago, and western leceipts tor tho week wero 6,252,716 bushels, against 0,191, 034 last year, and smco Aug. 1, 51,000, 000 bushels, against US.OUO.uOO last year. Tho Atlantic exports for tho week and since Aug. 1, have been about a third smaller tnan last year, but the fall in prices during tho week has been 1.75 cents. Cotton on the spot is lower, at 0.11 cents than at any other time sinco lb'iJ, and quotations tneu did not mean what they do now, whho the nearest option has beou quoted at 0.04 cents, which is below all previous records. Even at tho close the tall for tho week is ono-quar-ter. An estimate oi 9,000,000 bales minimum this year has influenced tho market, but would receive less attention if stocks in sight wero not heavy, while all agreo that this crop is likely to ox ceed tho world's requirements of Amor can cotton. It is encouraging that the speculation in corn has broken, and tho prico has fallen five cents. It is uow supposed that tho yiold is not far from 1,500,000, 000 ..bushels, which will compel much economy in feeding, but speculation in pork has also broken and tho prico has fallen 75 cents, while lard has declined one-half a cent. The iron industry shows a shrinkage of demand, aud tho prices quoted today aro but little abovo tho lowest this year. Bessemer pig is weaker at $11 at Pitts burg, with an impression that excess of production must causo further declino un less lower prices aro mado for steel rails. Billets, structural forms and nails ore a shade weaker, and in eastern markets competition of works to got business tends to destroy profits. There is moro business at tho west, and Chicago re ports a good demand for sheets, for bar iu small lots and for coko pig, though plates and boiler tubes aro weaker. The boot aud shoo manufacture con tinues to lead others in comparative ac tivity, and shipments from Boston for tho month have been 338,097 cases, against 222,023 last year, and 828,100 in 1892. Failures are fow and small, for tho week's liabilities amounting to $5,278, 285, of which $2,382,313 were of manu facturing and $2,575,112 of trading con cors. Tho failures during tho weak havo been 235 in tho United States, against 331 last year, and 55 in Canada, against 33 last year. Woman Killed. Pittsdurg, Sept. 29. Mrs. W. L. Jones, wifo of a prominent insurance agent who represents a number of lead iug foreign companies horo, was killed yesterday ovening just as she was start ing out for a drivo. Mr. and Mrs. Jones had just stopped into their surrey, whon the horses backed tho vehiclo in front of a rapidly moving Duquosno electric car. Tho collision throw both occupants of tho surroy violently to tho ground, breaking both of Mrs. Jones' logs and badly bruising her husbaud. Tho lady died shortly of torword from tho effects of her injuries. Sho was very promi nent in social circles. Moonshiners Surrender. T.iTTf.K RofiK. Srnit. 29.

Plum inor, a cottou broker of Petersburg, Va., was found dead in his room at tho St. James hotel last night, having shot him solf through tho right aide. From lot tors and tolograms found among his ef fects it is conjectured that business and financial troubles led him to commit tho act.

Ills I'lan He Considers tho licit and Gives His Iteusoiw For So Tiilnhlng Alumin um ISoats Fulfilled Hi Kvpcctatlous. Preparation Being Made For tho Next Trip. Washington, Sopt. 29. Walter Well men, tho nowspaper correspondent, who distiuguishod himself by a dash for tho north polo this summer, arrived at his home last night. Ho was accompanied by his wifo, who went on to Now York to meet him. Over tho partial failure of his expedition, Mr. Wollmau is in no wise discouraged. So confident is Mr. Wellman of tho feasibility of tho plan of which ho was the originator, that ho will mako another attempt to reach a hithorto unattained latitude next sum mer aud will mako it along the same general lines which he pursued this year. When asked if ho considered his route tho K'st ono yet attempted, ho said: "It is ono of the best. Perhaps if a man lias unlimited time to devote to an expedition, tho trip by wuy of Franz Joseph's Laud would bo tho brst, taking Franz Joseph's Land as the basis of operations, but that would require two or threo yoars or more. Indeed, it is only possible to reach Franz Joseph's Laud about ono year iu threo. "The aluminum boats," Mr. Well man coutinu&d, "entirely fulfilled our expectations. Undoubtedly they will be considered ono of tho most essontial features of un outfit for travel in those regions, whero it is necessary to drag the boats long distances over tho ice, and whero lightness is a quality almost as requisite as strength in all of tho out fit. Tho Jackson expedition, which starts irom Greenland this season, will bo provided with them. "Our party received only tho beat treatment from tho scientists and tho pross of Loudon, Paris and Norway, aud wero mado tho recipients of kindness which wo can not forget. Confidence in tho practicability ot our plans was goncrally expressed, even after our re turn. I spuut somo time on onv way homo iu consultation with experts in Berlin and elsowhere, securing infor mation which will bo of advantage next season. My timo this winter will be devoted to preparations for tho next ex pedition. It may bo necessary for me to return to Europo within a fow weeks to perfect arrangements. Tho personnel of tho party will bo somowhat changed, as some of the scientific mou have other engagements. All of tho Norwegians uro anxious to accompany mo next year. Moro than this I can not now say of my plans " Tho dissensious which havo arisen in tho Poary party wore mentioned, and Mr. Wollmau remarked: "There is al ways moro or less of what wo call 'kick ing' incidental to such au expedition, but those who endeavor to discredit the enterprise usually succoed in only dis crediting themselves. Happily our party was almost free from dissonsion. Men must expect hardships when they un dertake such work." "How would you answer tho ques tion," ho was asked, "which has al ways been a matter of dobato whether tho results possible to bo gained from Arctio expeditions, can compensate for the risks, hardships aud costs?" "That is a matter of opinion, like tho tariff question. I have my opinion on it, as I havo on tho tariff questiou. Peo plo who do not beliovo in Arctio ex plorations had better stay out of it, but would do well to accredit good inten tions and honosty of purposo to those who undortake it." TWO MEN PERISHED. Naimtiuo the Scene of a Hundred Thou sand Dollar ltlaze. Nanaimo, B. C, Sept. 29. Two meu wero burned to death, two other men and a little girl woro badly injured and 100,000 worth of property destroyed by fire that broko out horo at 5 a, m. yes terday.

Tho flames spread in a northerly direction along Wharf street, destroying tho firo wall, tho Nanaimo hotel, C. E. Stevenson's dry goods store and fivo small framo buildings. That tho nowor part of tho town was not completely wipod out was duo to tho absenco of wiud and to the heroic work of tho volunteer firo brigade. "Jack tho Whipper" in Chicago. Chicago, Sopt. 29. "Jack tho Whip per" has broken looso aud is making life full of terror to tho female bi cyclists who ride in Washington park during tho ovouiug. Jack has a frautio aversion to tho bloomers, aud his method of expressing his disapproval is to plant a fow lusty welts with a raw hide upon overy pair of bloomors that ho can find with a girl iusido thorn. His plan for tho last two nights has boon to wait bohind a tree until a bi cyclist in bloomers comes along, then ho springs out aud plies the rawhide vigorously.
