Bradstreet'a aaya: Tha favorable features of the week in distributive trade have been the reports coming-, with few exceptions, from all parts of the west and north west, and marred only by the check to tuslnese and shipment; caused by heavy ralna and high water in the Ohio valley. The two Industries cotton and woolen most complaining are those In which conditions other than foreign complica tions have for some time past been working toward depression The coarse cotton goods situation docs not improve In any way. While some woolen gooda mills have already bocked good orders the business done as a whole has not been up to anticipation. Raw wool, however, does not reflect the rather unsatisfactory condition In the manufactured product In lower quo tations. The condition of the Iron and ateel trade it one which excites satis faction, and almost surprise. From a number c.f widely aenaj-ateri seetlnno the report comes of unprecedented ac tivity In nearly all branches of the trado. The price situation this week Is notable in shewing decreases more numeroua than for some time past. This, of course. Includes many lines in which speculation playi, a prominent part. The passing of the cold wave with Httle or no reported damage to the growing winter wheat counted with tho general forward condition of agricultur al matters and the anticipated heavy acreage in spring wheat. Is credited with much of the depressing Influencn manifested In cereala this week. Hulne failures In the t'nlted st te this week are 115. against 233 last week. ki in this week n year ago. :T6 in 1S96. and m in lR9r,. CRISIS OF THE FLOOD PASSES.
