PROSPERTY, INDUSTRIAL PEACE
* AND WORK FOR ALL IN 1906
Investigations in All Lines of Business and
Industry Indicate That Record for Com

GreatyasThis Year's Gain Surpasses
That of 1904. '
Special Correspondence of The
Press.
NEW YORK, Jan. I.—ln the
opinion of the leaders of the com
mercial and the industrial world,
the year of 1906 will be character
ized by the greatest activity In all
lines of business ever known. The
year just closed has marked an
epoch in the material prosperity of
the people, but just as 1905 eclipsed
the record of tho preceding year
so will 1906 eclipse the wonderful
record made in 1905.
A remarkable feature of present
conditions Is that every class of in
dustry shares in the great wave of
prosperity that has rolled across
the country. The conditions that
have brought about this happy
state are manifold. An unbroken
cnain of good crops, which made
the farmers lenders instead of bor
rowers, contributed materially to
the general prosperity of all class
es.
The industrial world Is practic
ally at peace. The stability of the
currency is not being attacked by
any of me isms. An air of confi
dence pervades every branch of
business life. There conies as
nearly being work right now for
every man willing to work as will
ever exist in this or any other coun
try.

MERRY TIMES AHEAD FOR FARMERS
GRAIN PRICES NOT LIKELY TO
BE LOWER AND MONEY
SHOULD BE PLENTIFUL —
OUTLOOK FOR THE GRAIN
TRADE IN 1906.
By Douglas M. Wylie,
President Baltimore Chamber of
Commerce.
BALTIMORE, aJn. I.—The gen
eral business of the country has
continued on an enormous scale
during the past year. No better evi
dence of this can be secured than
the fact that although the trans
portation companies have placed
large orders for equipment, still,
when the time arlved to move the
large cereal productions of the
country to the seaboard, the same
old difficulty of lack of cars was
early heard; and, as a consequence,
the volume of grain traffic has been
curtailed.
In the grain trade, we produced
the largest crops of corn and of
oats ever grown, the combiued pro
duction being largely in excess of
the world's record; and, while a
large crop of wheat was produced,
still conditions operating in the
trade have made it a very peculiar
and exceptional season.
The stock of old wheat was prac
tically exhausted when the crop of
1905 became available, and conse
quently there was an Instant and
large demand for the new crop; in
terior mills being active In their
competition against the ports, so
that good wheat has, until now,
found a ready demand from these
interior sources and prices are very
much higher than the export de
mand has so far evinced an inclina
tion to pay.
The accumulation of supplies in
this country has not been on a very
large scale, and, on the other hand,
tho export movement has not been
large. Scarcely any actual wheat
has been shipped to Europe, the
movement being composed in a
large measure of the manufactured
products and the shipment of Can
adian wheat via United States
ports, consequently the trade in
wheat has been rather Irregular in
character, and so far the foreign

movement has been disappointing,
it being assumed that with a total
production of 682,000,000 bushels
there would be inevitably a large
surplus for export purposes.
Europe has so far been indiffer
ent; Russia, the Danube and the
Argentine contributing a total,
which, up to this time, has made
European buyers comparatively in
dependent of the United States; I
hut, with the turn of the year, ln<
view of the small reserve generally!
admitted in European countries)
which are compelled to import
wheat, this phase of the situation is
likely to change rapidly; and, if
the visible of this country contin
ues its present showing, with spec
ulative suport recognizing this con
dition, the price on the seaboard
is not likely to be very much lower
than Is at present witnessed; and,
the chances would appear to be all
in favor of higher values, ere the ;
new crop Is available.
In corn the situation is entirely
different, the short crops of corn
and barley in Europe and the fail
ure of the rye crop in Germany and
Russia lead to an immense demand
for corn and oats; the near ap
proach, too, of the time when the
Increased German duty will be lev
led on cereals, caused the continent
to purchase grain on an immense
scale; and some idea of thUT
demand may be had from the state
ment —that the exporters on the
seaboard sold about all the corn
they could readily supply.

Coming as this does after two or

trade and the country Is to be con
gratulated that such influences are
so general, because, with corn rul
ing about 50 cen+s on the seaboard,
with such a crop as it is admitted
we have produced, there should be
an a.mple supply of money in the
possession of the agriculturists;
and this being true, all lines of

which for so long have housed thou
sands of persons engaged in the
preparation of snuff and smoking
tobacco, will remained deserted and
the factory will be transferred to

One of the chief causes for the
removal of the works to Chicago
Is said to be the high freight rates
charged from Pittsburg to the chief
