FINANCE AND COMMERCE CONDITIONS ARE GENERALLY SATISFACTORY HENRY CLEWS' VIEWS The Foreign Situation Is Improv ing. But Dull Season Is Approaching. New York, Feb. 10.-Technloally, therefore, the stock market is in an exceedingly strong position. Few stocks are in weak hands, and the floating supply being highly concen trated it is impossible to force selling by artificial meanq, and trading on the short side is not a favorite pastime just now for those having a serious regard for their financial health. The result is a speculative deadlock; new conditions being necessary to give the market a fresh start. Among those who hold the bulk of the flating supply or stocks, the opinion is decidedly bullish, and in such quarters very positive predictions of higher prices are current. In other circles, however, a decidedly conser vative tone exists. With many the old argument that prices are already as high as conditions justify is still a potent one. It is worthy of note that bank clear ings and railroad earnings, though very satisfactory, are showing steadi ly falling increases The iron trade is just now the only business exhibit ing any phenomenal activity; and the demand for iron being special and ab normal that industry ! cannot at this time be deemed a fair trade barome ter The grain movement at interior p uants is running nearly 50 per cent. Lel)w last year, and cotton receipts have begun to decrease also. Short crops of corn and cotton are at last beginning to show their effect, nor. only upon railroad traffic but also upon the foreign exchange market; the consequent scarcity of commercial bills being the chief incentive for shipping over $4,000,000 gold this week. A much more careful feeling is noticed in mercantile circles, where high prices on merchandise are beginning to show their effect in less ened sales and diminished consump tion. There is no occasion to believe that the end of good times is at hand; but here and there signs of having *, touched high-water mark are multi Ut plying, and it is becoming clear that IL activity can only be continued by 'h bringing prices down to a more reason able level. We are now approaching It the dull trade season, and daring the next six "monthl machl will depend upon the crop outlook. Farmers are ig prosperous as a class; they have spent w- freely ann the same is true in the mineral industries, which are yearly becoming more important factors in our national prosperity. The general situation, however, is satisfactory. If the country seems disposed to take a period for rest and reflection after its recent activities, that may be regarded with satisfac-. Y. tion. General conditions are sound; r credit is not overstrained, and there is as vastly more prudence in regard to new and untried en erprises than was the case a year ago. The foreign situation shows distinct improvement. London being more hopeful in consequence of progress in South Africa and Berlin showing a partial revival resulting from the safe passing of a serious industrial orisis. A favorable feature in home affairs is the prospective abolition of the inter nal revenue war taxes, which caused congestion of innds in the Treesury, were becoming a serious menace to the money market and were the darkest aloud ovehanging thi% business situa tion. This danger it is hoped will ion be removed. Theefore all things consideed the local situation is beoom ing more favorable to upward manipu lation. It is not altogether sarprising that appearances indicate that a strong concerted effort is being made to lift the market out of its recent rut. Con. aqiently the market hereafter will offer better opportunities for quick trading, but I advise taking all mod erate profits rather than holding out for very big ones. DANGEROUSLY SICK CGroton, Feb. 10.-Pneumonia has spread to the other lung of Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. His temperature has increased, his respiration is unfavora ble, and he is reported muoh weaker. The President passed the night in the sink room, relieving Mrs. Roosevelt who has been in constant attendance at the bedside since her arrival.. The President has abandoned all idea of returning to Washington until the ori is is i - It may be assumed that the labom peac committee is organised with ea tire sincerity and composed of men who are broad enough to recognia right on either side. There is therefore pground for hope that It will not prove the melancholy failure that the peace convention which met at The Hague some time ago turned out to be, thinks the Washington Star.
