NEW YORK,7 Dec. 14.-IG. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade tomoirow
will say: Holiday trade has increased
moderately, and in wholesale staple lines
no relapse is seen . either in volume of
transaction or in prices. Cold weather
has helped New York,- but it is still
behind the rest of. the country for some
recent losses from failures in the textile
markers hove fallen rather heavily here.
Collections in the country""continue good
and this relieves anxiety .which might
be otherwise felt over the rates for
money. Me<chants" accounts are in good
position, so that..new scales of commer
cial paper are light even "for this season.
Industrial conditions continue with no
great accumulation of new merchandise
in any quarter. In spile of lb.- break.in
cotton the market for fabrics Is still In
good position,"sellers" buying little to of
fer and nothing at cuts in prices.
A sharp rise to a minimum of $4.85
in wholesale" price of-coal, fully 25 cents
in two weeks, reflects actual scarcity of
the product more than "negotiations to
harmonize the trade. . :• •
Even the estimates did "riot" equal tha
actual decrease in furnace stock of pig
iron during November, which'amounted
to 84,830 tons, according to the Iron Age.

WILLIAM O'BRIEN.
John E. Redmond and William O'Brien,
the two spokesmen of the' "parliament
of the Irish people." now meeting in
Dublin for a re-creation of the Irish
party, are easily the most popular lead
ers of the Irish parliamentary party. Mr.
O'Brien founded the journal United Ire
land, and was its editor until 1890. The
name of this paper may be taken as the
keynote of Mr. O'Brien's existence. He
has fought for his convictions in and out
of prison so long that one forgets he is
only forty-eight years old. . Five years
and finished products in iron and steel 1
mdusiry are little changed.- Prices are
hard,. and-, mills are, working on old or- 1
ders that will take them well into the
new year. At Pittsburg there is still !
complaint that new business is not of- j
feared, but Chicago" concerns, have no such
difficulty. more idle mills have resumed, |
and little wage controversy is heard. 1

" ACTIVITY IX MANY LINES.
Most of the footwear manufacturers
have booked sufficient- business to keep j
.them well occupied for many weeks,
and are refusing "new.contracts, except
at ■! further advance in price. ..
New England Tiact'dries are mainly
working on spring goods, and mail orders
come freely from diMlant sections. Im
provement is noticed in- the local jobbing
trade aside from rubber goods, which are
neglected.''" Sole leather* is quiet and union
backs weaker, but upper is remarkably
active for the' season; stocks of glazed
kids nave been reduced. Another general
reduction In quotations is reported in the
Chicago hide market. Sales of,wool at the
! three Eastern markets increased 6,785,000
pounds against 5,267,344 in the previous
i week.. .Exports of cotton in November
were valued at $15.".".. more than in
the..same month last year, mainly owing
to an advance of 2.3 cents in price. The
j enormous rise iii quotations is shown by
j the fact that a year ago the average ex-
I port price- -was*2.l -cents- above Novem
; ber^ 1898, making 4.3 cents, or 82.7 pr
I cent advance in two years. Shipments
In November fell to 811,846 balers, against
1,211,234 in the previous month, indicating
that foreign-spinners are less urgent for
raw material. Port receipts have baen
heavy, and there-was a collapse In price
on the official estimates of the current
yield at I,loo,ooo,bales for a much lower
figure,, than ..was expected, and traders
remembered that last year's prognostica
tions proved, half a million bales below
the actual production. Cereals did not
maintain their advance. Coffee has suf
fered from liberal receipts at Brazil
ports, and No. 7 Rio is l%c below the
price a month ago. .
Failures for the "week were 240 in the
United States, against 218 last year, and
26 In Canada, against 26 last year.
BRADSTREET'S REPORT.
West Trade Condition* Are in the
.-—. r ...^--L._.lron. Industry.
NEW YORK, Dec. 14.-Bradstreet's to
morrow will say: ~ Favorable conditions
rule generally in all lines of seasonable
trade. Holiday preparations are, of
course, dominant in retail- business, and j
where this has hitherto lagged it has
been stimulated by*-"- more seasonable
weather. Wholesale distribution is lim
ited, as natural at this period, but West
ern jobbers are in receipt of a fair reor
der business. So far the best reports
as to retail trade' come from the West
and South. In leading .Industries the
best report is still'that made by fin
ished products of the iron and steel
Industry, but oth?r favorably situated
lines are boots and shoes and lumber.
New business in the former is rather
light at wholesale, but manufacturers
generally are busily .employed. and
Leather is firm in sympathy. A good
export demand for the tatter is noted.
Business in lumber is rather quiet, but
wholesalers are -preparing for a good
year. Hard woods arc; especially. firm
in price. Th"6*'cereals -are lower in
price, due to profit-taking on the late up
ward move, * the * larger . movement of
supplies, particularly .of corn, which is
favored by the weather and to less in
terest on the part of ; foreign buyers.
The government cotton estimate of 10,- \
IP'I,OOO bales was larger than expected by
* the trade, which looked for about 9,750,
--000 -bales. 7 The feeling is that, if the 7
yield does not exceed 10,100,000 bales, con

bales of American, must either be heav
ily curtailed or stocks will be reduced to
the .vanishing point. The close of the
week finds future quotations V_.e lower
and spot %c off. The goods market is
quiet, as natural at this period, and
high cost of raw material and low cost
of finished products ,do not harmonize.
Early spring trade business, however, is
fairly satisfactory. The lightweight
-season in men's wear woolen goods has
proved disappointing, but women's plain
dress goods are well ordered. Rather
more has been, done in foreign wools,
chiefly Australian, this week, and Mel
bourne and London advices are of firm
er markets. Low-priced domestic wool
is rather weak, however. ■• .
Although steel cplates have advanced $1

diminished, and large producers are re
ported buying outside makes to ill con

WORLD'S PRODUCTION. v
The worlds.production of gold In 1899
was of the*, value of $306,584,900, an in
crease of '< $19,156,300 over the yield of >
1898. The principal gains were $6,156,400 '
in the United' States, $7,585,600 in Canada j
(mainly in Klondike), and Australasia j
$14,860,800. The most important loss was j
in Africa, which fell about $7,000,000 be- j
low the output of 1898, as a result of tha |
war In the Transvaal. The war broke j
out in September and mining operations
in that field were almost suspended.
But for the interruption In the Trans
vaal the world's production for the year
would doubtless have been $25,000,000 J
greater. The Klondike output for 1899 j -
was about $16,000,000. The world's pro

NEW YORK, Dec. 14.—A bulletin was
issued from the sick room of August

AUGUST BELMONT.
Mr. Belmont was guilty of what his
physician thinks was a grave indiscre
tion. An attack of grip had kept the
banker in his house for some days, and
as soon as he thought he was well
enough to go out Mr. Belmont went to
New York to attend to several business
natters. When he returned to Hempstead
a relapse followed, and for a time It was
thought that his case was critical.
Since then there has been a marked
change in the character of the illness,
and now Dr. Finn announces that Mr.
Belmont has typhoid fever.

PEACE IN CHINA.
Chung* and China; -Ready to Proceed
for the Emperor.
PEKIN, Thursday, Dec; 13— Hung
Chang and Prince Ching have sent an
official notification to the ministers that
they have received the primised docu
ments authorizing them to act in behalf
of China in the peace negotiations and
announcing that they are ready to pro
ceed as soon as the ministers desire.
The fact' that Sir Ernest Satow, the
British minister to China, has not yet
received authority "from the home gov
ernment to sign the agreement causes
astonishment here, as it is felt that the
others powers having agreed there can
be nothing in the joint note to eau.e
Great Britain to refuse to sign.
Mr. Conger says he believes China will
immediately accept the terms imposed,
and that she has in her power to com
ply with the majority of them fore
spring, while the others can wait.
On account of the frost the court will
not be able to return to Pekin, nor will
the -troops be able, to leave until April,
when, if the peace conditions are com
plied with, it. is believed all the allied
forces, except the legation guards^ not
-to exceed a hundred men for each power,
will leave Pekin, regaining until fall on
the coast between Taku Shan-Hal-Kuan,
available if necessary, or ready to ba
withdrawn, for if China cannot behave
