NORTHERN VIEW OF
Seem to Think, According to An?

T:ilkii)K to un Intelligencer reporter
yesterday, li. o. Evan*, who has been
upending a fortnight in New York
etty and other Northern markets, Haiti
that the outlook for tho approaching
season's business was good as ho
could ever remember. He said that
conditio ti H in New York Just at tills
timo were a little hard to under
stand, sinco with the retail dealers
of Norw York, the pant season had
been a very poor ono, due In all pro
bability to tho fact that the fall had
been so warm. He said that another
fact contributing largely to the de
pression of business in New York
just at this time was the failure of
the immenso firm of Spiegel, which
occurred last week. He aleo mention
ed the failures which had occurred
among the clothing concerns in New
He said, however, that the whole
sale clothiers of tho North seemed
to bo in splendid shapo and that they
were all looking forward to the pres
ent season for a magnificent busi
ness. Ho commented on the fact
that tho Northern clothiers are en
thusiastic over President Wilson's ad
ministration and that they approved
heartily of the currency bill. Accord
ing to his impressions, the Northern
people think just as much of thc pres
ent administration as do the Southern
One fact that Mr. Evans had im
pressed upon him by his vi Bit to New
York was that clothing will not be
nearly so much cheaper as many
people think. The prevailing opinion
is that the tariff legislation enncted
by congress would make clothing
much cheaper thau lt has been. Mr.
Evans said that the manufacturers
explain that this ls clearly impossi
ble because ot the fact that there is
a reduction, morely on the raw ma
terial and not on lalbor. For instance,
the cloth to make a suit will come at
$7.00 possibly, but at the same time
the labor to make lt will remain at
$7.00. Therefore, the buyer in're'y
gets a better price because of tho
reduction in tho cost of material.
However, this aili of course be an
