DUX'S REVIEW OF TRADE
Tariff Delay and Crop Statement Fail
to Check Activity.
DEMAND FOR COTTON GOODS
tireater Interest and Larger Volume
of Actuul Transactions Observ
able Than for Long;
Time I'ast.
NEW YORK, June 11. R. G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of TraJe tomorrow will
say:
Further progress Is making toward busl
nesa confidence and activity, and even the
vexatious delay in the treatment of ;he
lunff and the somewhat dlHappolntlug
June crop statement have not nerved to
check the Improvement.
Statistics ot pig iron production during
May furnished evidence of the betterment
of Iron and steel. A significant develop
ment Is the urgency with which many buy
ers requext prompt deliveries, epectaiiy
transporting companies.
Greater interest and large volume of ac
tual transactions are observable In the pri
mary cotton goods market than for a long
time past. Jobbers are Vie principal .oper
ators, although the market aa a whole stl'.l
continues to be somewhat uneven. There
Is an advance on the majority of heavy
goods, which will probably curtail foreign
demand for some time. In the print cloth
division narrow clothe show Increased
firmness as a result of operations, com
prising between 2OU.000 and aOO.OOO pieces,
extending on delivery into September. This
has stiffened all odd counts, while wide
convertibles have alao advanced In price.
A fair distribution of prints from first
handa has occurred during the last month
and stocks are suld to be materially de
pleted. Bleached goods are moving mod
erately and have advanced In price, while
ginghams are strong and napped goods
for fall are In excellent condition. The
woolen goods division interest at present
centers In the opening of staples by the
leading producers.
Demand, as a whole, shows an Improve
ment In shoe conditions, perhaps more
marked at the present time than for any
period since the dullness set In. In the
packer hide market the movement has been
fairly active at firm prices, with some Ad
vances due to Improved quality on la'er
receipts. There Is an active leather mar
ket, leading Pt. Louis shoe manufacturers
having made heavy purchases of sole
leather In Boston. Demand has also been
good from other buyers with numenu.i
sales of from 10.000 to 15,000 sides and bends
of sola leather in all tannage reported.
Prices are firmly established at the od
vanre and In some Instances higher prices
are again quoted.
BR ADSTREET'S REVIEW OF TRADE
Reports from I.radlna; Isidnstrles Are
Favorable, It Says.
NEW YORK. June Jl. Bradstreefs to
morrow will say:
Reports from leading Industries are, on
the whole, fnvorable, so far as booking of
future orders Is concerned. Iron and steel
are active In finished lins, though output
is still belou normal In some districts.
Home wage advances are reported and
resumptions of blast furnaces are reducing
the floating labor supply. There Is reported
a widening demand for cotton goods. I'rint
cloths have regained the loss of a few
weeks ago. Woolen goods trade reports are
of good business booked or pending and
wool, thougli less active than of late, is
strong at level prices. Trade is active with
higher prices ruling. In sympathy with
hides and skins, which are apparently
scarce. Eastern shoe orders are fair. Ship
ments are 24 per cent larger than a year
ago. but smaller than In any previous year
hack to 1!03. Building trade reports con
firm earlier predictions of a record spring
construction in an enormous total far sur
passing ail previous monthly records ever
! complied. Reports as to collections share
the iregularlty noted In general distributive
' trade, varying from slow to good In dlf
' ferent sections. Reports from the north
west are that merchants are discounting
bills more freely.
