PROGRESS TOWARD IMPROVEMENT.
The View Bradstreet'n Takes or the CoarM
New Yokk, Oct. 6. KraUstroet's says:
While no radical change has apocared tht
week there are features of the situation
pointing to continued progress' in the di
rection of Improvement. This is true of
the country at large. Thus, in the eastern
and middle states, while the larger cities
do not report noteworthy changes. Provi
dence announces that all industrial lines,
notably manufacturing jewelers, have re-&-ivadtbcral
onlers, with the exception of
DiamtMfturcrs of machinery. Baltimore,
oo, reports larger sides in a few direc
tions. In the west corresponding reports come
from Omaha, where a better feeling is re
ported throughout the tributary region,
and there is more buying of dry (roods,
clothing, shoes and groceries. Duluth also
finds business improved and johlicrs in
several lim-s have liecn encouraged. St.
Louis and Kansas City rcjxirt stimulation
in wholesale as well as retail lines, due In
part to an influx of visitors to the carnl
Tals. From the south tho moyt favorable
rilKirts come from Jacksonville, where
wholesale trade is kkI and retail trade
improving. Merchandise is moving satis
factorily from Havnnnnh, and from
Charleston and Chattanooga,
The previously reported large volume of
lmsine.s of Chicago jobbers is maintained.
At a numlier of poinrs east and west de

collections us a rule." are in tho direction
of improvement. Wheat, corn and oats,
have advanced from previous lowest
levels. Some varieties of lumlier, naval
stores, tin, late and a few other staples
have remained steady in price, but refined
sugar is lower for reasons which may or
may not lie similar to those governing
prices in other lines.
Concessions in prices have also been
marie for pig iron, steel billets, lumber,
lard, coffee, cotton print cloths, a live hogs.
