Wholesale grocers report the domund for their line of goods as being exceptionally large, and, In fuel, sale last w-ek were almost uiiprereuenii'ri. There k no spe cial feature ' demand being .al for all staple and seasonable lines.

That lielnR the cane, ihoee who are well Informed and In clone touch with the miK&r altuatlon In all parts of the World believe that while there may lie no rapid advances for the next few weeks that prices will rule from V to Si emit higher within the next sixty days. The coffee market was a little easy dur ing the week, there being a Btendy decline In Kloa and Santos, but the week closed with a better feeling. The decline was brought about hy continued heavy re ceipt from Klo, which were far In excesa of expectations. Should this continue lower prlcea are sure to follow, but the general belief Is that the hulk of the crop hss been moved. As en Indication of this it Is said thut exporters In Rio who sold stocks In liecember for March and April delivery, buying buck their contracts. It Is also stilted that Europe Is several hundred thou sand lings short on May and that It will be necessary to cover this shortage from New York stocks, it la difficult, however, owing to the tact that there Is more or less specu lation to determine what the probnble out come sa-IU he. Mild coffee are being firmly held, as receipts have been gradually fall ing off for some time past. The cheese market advanced sharply dur ing the week, prices now being Vj'"c higher than they were a week ago for fancy October stock. Owing to Blocks being very llirht In first hands still higher prtces are being freely predicted. In the canned goods line some Improve ment is reported in tomatoes, most holders having advanced their prices ZWfthc per dmen. A firmer feeling is apparent In all tomato packing sections. Jobbers say that consumption is Increasing rapidly and should be enormous at prices now ruling. The com situation Is gradually clearing up and while no advances have been made lh situation is much more hopeful from the sellers' standpoint than It was two week ago. No inter at, however, la being manifested In either future corn or toma toes, owing no doubt to the low prices P' vailing on apot stocks. This Indifference sa to futures la true with both retailers ana Joboera. There ia very little change to report In the dried fruit situation. Peaches and apri cot a ar both moving freely, and the con sumption of prunea I Increasing. As a re sult the ptvne market may be said to be firmer than it haa been In the past. The rice market Is In a good, strong posi tion, ths tendency of prlcea being upward. Head i-lcea are being firmly held and that Is particularly true of the fancy grade. Indication now point to higher prices on both Japan and head rice. It la said that the present season has b-en so unsatisfac tory o growers that there, is every reason to expect a considerable reduction in the acreage this year. It Is claimed that grow ers cannot m.tke money, and in fact can scarcely get out even on the baala of prea- fni prices. There have been no particular changes In the fish market during the week under re view. The demand I exceptionally good and as mentioned a week ago the tendency of p.loes la upward on practically all lines. .I.rnt ia now at hand, so thut Jobbers look for an Increased demand and a still stronger mlisl Maay Dry Goods Buyers In Town. Omaha dry good jobbers experienced a lively houxe trade last week, as the city wa full of merchants and tney were lib eral buyers. 'Alley had a good word to suy regarding llin condition of trade In thw country, and the general report was that farmers seem to have plenty of ready money, and now thut the roaas are in good shape iliey are showing a dln poaulon to supply their wants more freeiy i tuui usual, in other wolds, many things that are now coumdered neccsailiva were a few years ago luxuries. Besides the Hbernl house, tmde, Jnbliera received niuny orders direct from mer chants and also through their traveling salesmen. In fact, many traveling men broke all previous record last week, as they found the majority of nierchanta in a buying mood. The warm weather, It seeuui, lias brought the tact forcibly he tors merchants, aixl consumers as well, that spring Is hern und that It Is time to make the usual preparations. A brisk trude is alio looked mr this week, lis n great nmny merchants have not completed their spring purchases. There. Is nothing particularly new to ho said of the market on either cotton or woolen goods. Knees are In Juai about the same notches they wers a week ago, and so fur as can be learned there la noth ing now to Indicate any radical flurtus tions In the near future. Of course woolen good are In very strong posi tion anil for that reastm are considered good property at present prices, and cot. ton goods are nlso looked upon as a aafe purchase, as ths demand is ao general all over the country that there aeeuis to be no reason for further reductions. In short, the market cn bofh cotton and woolen goods la In iv good, healthy coudl Uoa. Eaorntii Demand for Hardware. The demand for hardware last week wajt Something unusual. Local jobbers aid that the orders simply rolled in from all directions and almoet awamped them. Their ahlpplng fores were worked! over time, and extra men put on. and still It was almost Impossible to keep the good going out fnrt enough.. All such lines as poultry netting. wlr cloth, screen doors. ll goods, refrigerators, builders' hard war and. In fact, every line that could b called either staple or seasons hie whs In big request. Present Indication .ire that spring business this year will be fsr heavier than sver before. There Is no market new this week, a prices on all are In Juar about the asms rswltion they were a week ago The feel ing though.

The reflected In fluence from foreign markets was brighter this morning and there seemed less appre hension ovr the immediate outlook In Russia. The traditional view of the ex piration of a congress, especially where measures viewed with disquietude have been under consideration, wan of some ef fect In the minds of professional traders.

Tho demand has neen In good shape nnd as a result tne geimral tendency ot prices has been up ward. A large proportion of the receipt. all the week has consisted of corn-led steers and the bulk of the offerings could nut tie classed better than fair. In fact there has not bcr. a prime hunch of cuttle on the mark: tnls week. Muycrs, though, have tanen ho.a With life anfl each duy'B offer ings were disposed of ia good season, the tendency ot prices, being upward. At the close o! the week the general market on steers may ba quoted ruliy a quarter higher and some 01 the cattle that Deift suited buy ers aro as much as 35c higher. Good to choice steers are quotable from $5 to 15. 60, fair to good from $4.40 to $4.90 and ths com moner kinds trot,-. $4.26 dow n. The cow market has also been In very satisfactory condition and jirtces have been tne highest In some time past. If anything the auvanee on cows and heifers has becij more rapid than on ntcers. The market tuU safely be quoted 26'&'.'i6c higher for the week and In extreme canes tho mote desirable grades have shown even more Improvement than that. Good to choica cows and hellers may he quoted from $3. 26 to $1.35 and pilme heifers wou;d undoubtedly bring more than that. Fair to good grades sell irom $2.50 to $3.16 and common to fair from $2 to $2.M). The bull market Is also considerably higher than It was a week ago, the aavunce amounting to 2frff4oo. The choicer grades now sell irom $3 to $4 and the commoner kinds largely from $2.50 to $3. Veal canes are a quarter higher for the week, the top being $. There was quite a lively demand for atorkers and Itedors last week and with light receipts the market Improved. Any thing showing quality advanced about s quarter, but where the quality was not satisfactory the gain was not so great. F.lther light or heavy weight cattle sold to good advantage, the only requisite being quality, uood to choice grades . mav b quoted from $3.76 to $4.3i, fair t" good $3.10 to $3. ,5, and the commrner grades from $3.25 down.
