IN RULING PRICES Jekkers Report Advaaee Or.dere for Fall Delivery m Contlagr ia Tery Feely aa la Feet Mask Bet ter Tkaa a Teat Age. Spring goods laat week were rather out f season owing to the extremely cold and disagreeable weather that was experienced. The Utter part of the week, though there was a decided change for the better In weather conditions and trade showed a corresponding Improvement. Merchants have been doing considerable complaining about the cold, backward season, but still they are not at all discouraged, as they are aonfldent that as soon as conditions are right the trade will be fully up to expectallona Wholesalers have of course felt the effects of slow trade In the country and have been doing very little Immediate business. Ad van oe buslneee. however, has been moving along at a very satisfactory pare and In fat baa been running way ahead of last year In moat cases. Collections are a trifle quiet, as would I nrm w ' V ihuii V 1 111 boor domakd for seasonable goods that l' MH vmpwawHvww tp . V UW yi Mint time. So far as the market Is concerned there Is comparatively little to be said outside ated up and down about the usual amount. Tke general sltustton la the eame as it has a sue sum Uim faat,Uka te, yrlce are being held good and firm, with no prospect of any Immediate change In the near future. agar- Rates Not Settled. Wholesale grocers report the volume of business laat week as being all that could reasonably be expected under existing con dltllons. In regard to the market most lines are held in a strong position and many of them have an upward tendency. Among these la sugar, 'i here have been no changea In the market Itself since last report, both raws and refined being quoted steady. Refineries, though, report hvavy withdrawals and at New Orleans they are oversold from a week to ten days. Kallroads as yet have come to no understanding regarding rates from the east and south and It Is generally under stood that the question will not come up for discussion again until Monday or Tuesday of this week, at which time It la thought some settlement will be reached. Jobbers say that no matter on what basis an agreement ta reached It will have a tendency to advance prices lCKril&c per luu pounds. Another factor that will tend to force prices upward Is ths late, cold spring, which will necessarily make the fruit and berry season shorter than usual. Present prospects are for an exceptionally large yield and in that event prices on sugar would naturally be expected to advance and If not It mill be a question of getting supplies. The cheese market eased oft a lttle last week and probably still lower prices will prevail aa the sesson approaches when new grass cheese will be on the market. While there hss been no change In the market on rope, the raw fiber haa advanced In New York H'&'V per pound. For that reason an advance In the prtce of rope In the near future would cause no surprise. The coffee market ruled firmer last week and the decline at the latter part of the previous week was more than offset. The market la now fully of a cent above the low point reached just sfter the Sully fall ure Receipts In New York are consider ably less thn they were a year ago. The general Impression prevails that higher r rices are liable to be seen In the neur uture. Reports received from reliable frwuxcee Indicate tbat the grow lug crop to Brasll will be considerably less than a year ago. There was quite a demand for dried fruits last week. The market on-raisins shows a downward tendency, and the same is true of prunes. In spite of Ibe fact that prunes are going into consumption at a rapid rate, still they are not moving out fast enough from ths coast to satisfy pack ers and they are now accepting offers which only a short time ago the refused to entertain. Changes In canned goods during the week under review have been of minor Impor tance. Spot tomatoes have eased off a little, the loss amounting to about t cents per dosen. Future stock, however. Is being firmly held at the prlcee that have been ruling for some time past. Corn Is un changed and peas are being pushed forward ward and aa a result there la an easier feeling In the market. There Is a brink demand for fancy lines of groceries, more so In fact than ever before. Olives are moving out very freely and there Is every prospect of higher prices ruling in me near ruiure. in iuci, prices have already been advanced 5-ijlO cents per gsllon. There has been no change In the fish mar ket so far as quotations go, and the de mand has been fully up to expectations. Cod In particular has been moving out at a brisk rate and jobbers say that although prlcea are rather high there Is no pros pect of lower quotations lor some weeks to coma Dry Goods taovlaat Slowly. Dry goods Jobbers experienced rather a dull time laat week. They were not sur prised at that, however, for retailers- of course have aold comparatively little of their stock of spring and summer lines an das a result are In no position to do any slsing up. Trade with retailere on Friday and Saturday, however, was about the beat of the season and gave them some idea of what trade will be when more settled weather arrives. They are doing no worrying about business condi tions, for they say thst people have money and will be willing to spend It when the proper time comes. There have been practically no quotable changes In the market since last report. The situation is luuca the same, la (act. all Indications pointing to a strong market throughout the season, with the possibility of quite a shortage developing In popular lines toward the end of the year. While immediate business Is rather quiet with Omaha lubbers, they say that ad vance orders are coming In much more rapidly than they were a year ago, and that taking the season as a whole they have broken ull previous records. That being the case, they naturally are doing no complaining about the prospects for the future. Leather Goods Only Fair. The leather goods trade la only fair. The same aa hus been the case all the spring, the weather has been too cold to do much with low shoes, and as the majority of people now wear that kind of shoes during the summer, retailers have been doing very little business. With warm weather, however, they are not afraid of being dis appointed, and as a result they are quietly waiting for warm weather to appear. The latter part of last week they did a good business, whlrh In a measure made up for the dullness of the early pari or me went. There hus been some demand for rubber goods for immediate shipment, but nothing at all rushing. Advance orders for till rubbers are still coming In, but it seems that the majority of merchants have al ready placed their orders, so that traveling men have rather a bard lime to find a customer. Advance orders for leather goods are also coming In In good shape, consldtring the time of year, but traveling men think they will meet with better succcita after the weather Improves and retailers bcKln to sell what stock they already have on hand.
