Bi ports Improve With Yleldlne Frieda or StaplesTextile Work hhons Lit tle Clmnce'-Fnllures Increased. New York, Fob., 15. K. O. Dun & Co., Saturday, says: , Failures for thu first week of Febru ary were 84,079,030,, against $5,000,800 ,last year. Manufacturing were 33, 375,353 against 8789,318 last yc2r and SI, 594.072 In 1890. and trading was 81, j20,427 against 81,934,890 ,la-jj year and $2,433,045 .In 1894. Failures for the week have boon 321 In the United -States against 270 last year and C7 In Canada against 51 last year. The weather still hinders business, also contlnu6d closeness of money and prolongod inaction of congress; but -confidence Increases. There is a little more demand for uomo manufactured products. Export improve with yield ing prices of staples and for tho week from New i York exceed last years 30 por cent., while, the imports hato In creased IS per cent Pig iron nt the east' and at Chicago has not advanced. Southern competi tion continues at prices so low that several Alabama ( furnaces have stopped, but Bessemer is a shade lower at Pittsbugh. Tho demand for plates, sheets and wire nails continues fairly good, and there aro some orders for railroad cars and bar iron at Chicago, but no further sales of rails appeared; .demand for finished products keeps but about seventy per cent, of the ca pacity. Tho coko output is aijain much reduced. 'Copper is a shadb firmer, while tin and lead aro not act ivo and unchanged. The demand for boots and shoes is still disappointing. Somo makers get good orders for wom en's light shoes, but others scarcely any and lioston shipments thus far aro 21 per cent. less than last year, Tcxilo work shows little change, tho cut in print cloths and general concessions in brown and bleached staples averaging for tho wholo list quite six per cent, since January 1, In duced more buying, which tho known accumulation of goods ahead of demand has hindered Many mills are reporting groat profits last year from the riso of cotton, but tho prospect of a larger crop this year does not prom ise repetition of such gains. , Though goods still average 12.7 per cent, abovo their lowest point a year ago, cotton is now44 percont higher than it wasthon. Sales of wool have boon small for two weeks of Fobrunry, but higher prices abroad sustained by heavy shipments of goods to this country incline hold ers of wool hero to mako no conees- sions, so that manufacturers have more difficulty in meeting competi tion. Produce markets havo tended downward mainly because supplies ex ceeded expectations. Wheat lias de clined Jc. Corn is a shade lower, and both pork and lard a little lower. Cotton receipts nt this season, never large, still indicate a supply for tho eurreut crop year, including stocks brought over, much in oxcess of the world's needs, so that the prospect of increased ucreacrc has the more power to depress prices, and spot cotton has, declined an eighth for the week. Ex ports in January were S3.(i53,5i.'i, less "than last year, though prices were 45 per cent, higher. NOTED JURIST DEAD.

Nothing else vias presented In tho course of the five hours session.

Crisp and Turner respectively. Tho closing speech against tho senate substitute was mado by Mr. Dal .ell (rep., Pa.). The speeches wero of unusual length, and throughout these addresses wero heard with attention nnd apparent in terest the novel bpectaclo of Messrs. Crisp and Turner arrayed ugalnst each other being a strong factor in tho case. While Mr. Crisp was speaking Sena tors Pritchard. Lodge, Buriows, Pal mer, Tillman, Bacon, George, Cockrell and Mantle, and Secretary Herbert were observed on tho lloor. When tho debatohad been concluded the previous question was ordered, pro forma and at the suggestion of Mr. Dlngley (rop., Me.), in order that there might be no misunderstanding, it was put in this form: "Shall the houso concur in the sen ato substitute?" ' Tho roll was called amid extraor dinary quiet, and at its conclu sion tho cause of the absence of those not present was stated by their col leagues, so groat was the anxiety to have the record show tho attitude oi overy member toward thS proposition. A study of the voto bhows that 2.f re publicans, 53 democrats, one silver mau and all tho populists present voted in favor of freo coinage and that 184 republicans and 31 deiuocrats ajjainst it Tho tlcinocialic voto against freo coinage was bit greater than the republican voto for it This matter being disposed of, the house took a refess until eight o'clock, to consider private pension bills.
