Liabilities in Failures for '94
Less Than Half Thosß
of '93.
Clearing House Business
Shows Nearly 8 Per Cent
Bradstreet's Prophesies a
More Active Demand for
New Fork, Dec. 28.— R. (J. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade will say:
Commercial failures in 1^.4 already re
ported number 14.292, against 15,242 last
year, with liabilities of 1163,238.404,
against 1346,779.889 last year. Next
week the filial report for 1691 will prob
ably include about 400 more failures,
with liabilities of about £4,000,000. From
these accounts, bunks, bankers, finan
cial and transporting companies are ex
cluded. Manufacturing failures already
number 2,750, against 3,422 last year:
bu-, liabilities are only 164,491,287,
aca list 1176,it82. 191 last year. The trad
ing failures already number 11.314,
■gainst 11,112 last .ear; but liabilities
are only t57.89U.057, against 1130,082.833
last year. The statement by sections
allows a decrease of about two-thirds in
defaulted liabilities in tin: Middle and
Central Northern states, one-half in the
West and Southwest, and a third in
other sections
Holiday trade has met expectations.
Purchases have been numerous, but
smaller than usual in amount and more
confined to needful articles, thus antici
pating ordinary trade. The volume of
business represented by clearing house
exchanges is 7.7 per cent larger than
last year, but 21.8 per cent less than tin;
y r before, and the daily average for
December has been 7.1 per cent mure
than last year, but 25 2 less than the
year before.
Wheat has declined }^c, though West
ern receipts have been only 1.713,096
b ishele against ? 109,893 for the same
week last year, but since August Ist
receipts have been a little larger than
last year and tti *• visible supply Is the
largest known. Exports in December
from both coasts liavs been a little larg
er than last year, but for the crop
year about 20.OM.00;) bushels smaller.
The Western estimate, usually regarded
with most confidence^ is that the crop
will iv- -h 515.000,003 bushels, which will
leave for ex; o t, with stock* brought over
more than 2 n,0J0,000 bushels, of which
only 75.000,000 busliels have gone abroad:
Corn ha- ilfi-iint'd %c, with good re
ce 9. The price of cotton has not
chi.iued. but tie lact that receipts from
plantations this month have been great
er than in IS9I, while slocks in sight
here and abroad are larger than at tfTe
same date that year, is an obstacle to
any rise.
Sal- sof wool this month have been
17.806,800 ib.s, against 13.049, last year,
and 5i1.3u2.500 in 1892, and Ohio has sold
at 17c.
The market tor iron and steel is wait
ing, but the reduction in wanes at the
Edgar Thompson works, averaging 15
per cent, plainly indicates the same
difficulty which is seen in other quar
ters, that the demand in consumption
does not answer to the increase in pro
duction 01 pig iron. The shipments of
rails for eleven months are reckoned at
only 700.000 tons, of which only 200,000
is for new roads. Numerous projects
for steel buildings are under considera
tion, but no important contract is re
ported. It gives some encouragement
that the Bethlehem works have secured
a contract to make armor plates for
Russia, but the order for cast pipe from
Julian is still in doubt. Prices have
scarcely changed* during the week,
though Bessemer pig and billets are, if
anything, a shade weaker. There is
larger demand in nails, but in hard
ware, machinery, engines and railway
stocks and materials the business is
much depressed. Shipments of boots
and shoes from Boston have been 649,
--471 tons in the past two months, against
6tU,230>1u 1892, hitherto the largest year,
but the difference about prices still
checks operations.
Failures for the week have been 350
in the United Stares, against 511 last
year, and 41 in Canada, against 41 last
Remember this—in using Dr. Price's
Cream Baking Powder, it is stronger
tl.an any other and takes less for the
tame baking.
Improved Outlook for Late Winter
Kew Fobk, D«c. 28.—Bradstreet's
tomorrow will say:
General trade presents the usual holi
day characteristics. A majority of
wholesale dealers and manufacturers
are beginning, or have finished taking
account of stock or arranging settle
ments for the New Year. Main activity
has been for Christmas specialties in re
tall linos. The practical conclusion of
Holiday trade has brought about a
moderate reaction, and this emphasizes
the (.uUoess noted In preceding w'teks.
Jobbers claim the outlook for trade
during the late winter and and early
spring is very conservative buying
But on some lines, notably heavy tex
tiles, the recent cold weather has
stimulated sales, and reports from re
tailers West aud South indicate that
docks are low. almost beyond prece
dents. Traveling salesmen, with few
exceptions, are off on the road. Boston
reports 57,600.000 pounds of wool In that
City, compared with a stock of 43,500,000
one year ago, the decrease being ex
clusively in domestic varieties.
Industries are shut down In many in
etanccs to make repairs or take stock,
and, owing to extremely low prices for
Industrial staples, the wage movement
tends downward. Quotations for staple
merchandise show more firmness, with
sugar, cotton, wheat, corn, steel, naval
store*, tobacco, tin and copper practi
cally unchanged in price. Oats, among
cereals, record a fractional advance
wnilo print cloths aud other'stapl* cot
tousare lower In conformity with re
sults of recent auctions, and pork and
lard with increasing supplies of lower
grades of live stock at Western markets.
Coffee, too, i» depressed, and there are
rumors of contracts for Iron and steel at
a shade und«r last week's quotations
although unconfirmed. "'
Reduced stocks of American avail
able supplies of wheat, notwithstand
ing reports on the visible supply state-
tnent ot a net increase, tend to strength
en wheat, but the surprisingly large
total of that cereal (flour included as
wheat) sent abroad last week, Is fully
offset by the shrinkage In such expor
tations this week, the total of both
Coasts of the United States being 1,814 -
OVO bu, compared with 3,554,000 bu In
previous week. 2.036,000 bu In the week
a year ago, 2,917.000 bu two years ago,
8,106,000 bu three years ago, and as con
trawled with 1,031,000 bu for the last
wuck in the calendar year of 1890.
Mercantile failures in the United
States for the calendar year (Dec. 27
18«:;, to Dec. 26, 1894) aggregate 13,721,
or 18 per cent less than in th« panic
yenr 1893. when the total, 15,560, was 51

Special returns to lkadstreel's show
a net decrease within the year of about
3,000 individual*, firms and corporations
established in business throughout the
country, but. owing to a decrease in the
number of failures, the commercial
death rate Is only about 1.21 in every
100 enquired in busiuess in the four
years preceding ISl>3. It is also shown
that 78 banks are reported suspended
this year, compared with 598 the year

Bradstreet'a Keview of the Week
in Finances.
Kbw Yokk, Dec. 2*.—Bradstreel's
financial review tomorrow will say:
Speculative activity has been at a low
ebb all the week. Holiday influences
Cheek non-professional participation,
and make the larger manipulative forces
of Wail street unwilltug to do anything
of consequence in the market. .Special
movements in a tew stocks, combined
with limited transactions by some of
the mow traders, have been the only
features. It would also seem that there
has been some closing up of accounts
prior to the begltiuiug of the New Year,
taougU the sales for this cause would,
under normal conditions ot activity, be
regarded as unimportant. London has
taken no pan whatever in the market.
Sugar, the leading speculative, was
absolutely neglected, and manipulation
in it suspended. What trading there
was centered in the coal stocks and
grangers, with some activity in Whisky
and Cordage. Heading advanced to
10.V, but was depressed to 14 on rumors
of a modification of the plan involving
a heavy assessment. Jersey Central
was attacked by the bears, and sold
from 93^6 to S7>£, rumors of a reduction
in the dividend being circulated. The
feature of the grangers was St. Paul,
which fell from 58 1 3 to 565-4, the poor
November earnings Having an unset
tling influence on the stock. Burling
ton was also weak, but Kock Island
appeared to have support. Distil
lers distinguished itseif by rising
from SJ4 to 11% on talk of a reorganiza
tion which will provide for a new man
agement, supplemented by reports that
insiders were short of their own stock.
There was continued liquidation in
Contage.the common stock selling down
to 5, 1 a and the preferred to 8-j. In spite
of the announcement'that the interest
on the bonds has been provided for,
tnere is a belief that the reorganization
ha* been incomplete and that there will
be disagreeable developments. Both
preferred and common rallied on Fit
day. Among the trunk lines the leature
was '.he selling of and decline in B. «!fe
O. which tell iron tW> 4 to os% without,
any assignable reason save the belief
that the company's position with re
gard to the Valley Railroad of Ohio lias
antagonized powerful financial interests.

advertisement voiced her evening
prayer thus—"Please make me good
and uerfect as Dr. Price's .Baking Pow

Grain Markets Heavy With a
Tendency Downward in
Day's Rec3ipts Were Light--
Provisions Record an Ad
With Two Exceptions the
Day's Trading Was Un
Chicago, Dec. 28.—The grain mar
kets were heavy today, ami inclined to
weakness under easy cables and influ
enced by holiday dullness. The provi
sion Market wore something of a glad
some look for the bulls, and made ad
vances of 25c in pork and 10c each in
lard and ribs. Wheat, corn and oats
each closed in the doleful dumps at
respective declines of fro m .Veto'gc
per bushel.
After a struggle of thirty minutes In
the wheat pit this morning another %c
per bushel was rubbed off the price of
that article. The early cablegr aius
quoted Liverpool a shade lower and
steady at the decline. The addltio n
made to the crop of the country yester
day was not in evidence in today's re
ceipts. Chicago got 44 cars, or rather
22 cars, for 22 of those inspected were
transfers from private to public ware
house. The receipts here a year ago
were 74 cars. Minneapolis reported
147 and Duluth 70, or 217 in all, com
pared with 871 on Friday a week
ago and 361 a year ago. The
primary market receipts in this
c unary were only 241, bu. against
329.0J0 bu on the corresponding
diy of last week and 416,000 bu a. year
ago. Export clearances of wheat and
flour from the Atlantic ports amounted
to 32 ),000 bu. The. closing cables were
in line with those received at the open
ing. Liverpool whs from }£d \o >£d
lower. Paris quoted 2) centime* decline
in December flour, but no change in
distant delivery, and quotes wheat 10
centimes lower all around. May wheat,
which opened at 57 i 4 e, first adv a need a
trifle t057%<§57%c. and rollow ed that
up by a dtcine to 57}$'c. It afterwards
boboed up and down between 57 ]sC and
57^j'(tt'oT, I; i c. The latest trading was at
57^c. at which them were, however,
more sellers than buyers.
Corn was moderately active,but weak.
The demand was again very limited tor
May corn, but for No. 3 yellow to go in
store there was a rather better inquiry.
The range of fluctuations in May was
narrow. The opening price was 4834' c,
showing no change since the previous
afternoon. It was fairly stea-ly and
even iirin for a short time, but weak
ened when wheat began to decline. It
sold sparingly as high as 48> and de
clined to 48c. at which price, however,
not much could be bought. The latest
trading was at 48>[email protected]>i"c.
The oat market was purely a sympa
thetic one. Prices were considerably
lower, but only a fairly active suasion
was passed. May started whore it end
ed yesterday, at 31%"c, sold down to
31m>c and closed at Slot's.
Tim piovisiou Market opened rather
tame at a shade less than yesterday's
closing prices, although the run of hogs
was considerably smaller than had been
looked for. The inclination to sell was
soon checked when it was discovered
that many of the recent sellers were
disposed to take the other side of the
market. May pork, which yesterday
closed at $11.60, opened with sales at
from thai dowu to f11.57^, and the
latest trading was at $11.85. May lard
opened at 16.90, and closed at *7. May
ribs started at *5.«0, and closed at 16.

main point of attack, and being sold
lreely. with the result of a break of 2%
per cent in the stock, 1% in Delaware It

decline of 1% on sales of only GOO shares.
Disquieting rumors were In circulation
