MAIHNOVM SKW RAILKOAD The Material Jliow Being Hoved from O'Neill, Xeb„ to Be Used In HaUdlng the Lino. Thursday evening THE DAXLY LEAW published a dispatch from South Sioux City, Neb., to the effect that railroad material was being moved from O'Neill, Neb., and stated that it was to be used in the construction of the Sioux City, Madison and Northern lino to this city, ex tent ion of the Sioux City and Northern from Garretson. The follow ing additional particulars from the Sioux City Journal of yesterday clearly indi cates that that is the purpose for which the material is to be used: A great deal of mystery surrounds ft recent movement of the Pacific Short Line and Sioux City and Northern roadfc It is the transfer of the material now lying in the yards at O'Neill to sonif other point, probably Sioux City. When the Short Line was finished to O'Neill a large amount of material was hauled out and stored there. It was in tended to be used when the extension of the line began. But the extension never began, and the material has been left in the same place over a year. Yesterday 100 flat cars and 150 men were massed at O'Neill, and the an nouncement was that the material was to be moved. At Sioux City and North headquarters nothing oould be learned. A rumor was current that the material would be taken to Garretson and left in the yards there the supposi tion being that it was to be used on the Sioux City, Madison and Northern as soon as work is begun, which, in all probability, will bo early in the spring A. S. Garretson said the material was being taken under foreclosure of a mort gage given, be believed by the Wyoming Pacific Investment company to Thos. Stone. IIo had paid very little attfention to the matter, having understood that there was sufficient of the material to meet the mortgage and probably leave a small surplus. He understood the ma terial would be stored on the Sioux City terminal grounds. The presumption has been that this material would be used in building the Dunning extension of the Short Line. It is probable that Mr. St^ne is holding it with the view to selling as soon as any buyer can be found. It is also probable that it will be used by one of the Sioux City lines as soon as they are ready to begin building. The recent activity among officials of the Madison and Northern, together with tho assurances from Madison that the right-of-way for tho now line had been secured, lead to tho belief that the material from O'Neill will be used on the Northern extension. As another indication thai active work on the Madison extension is to be com mdnced as soon as possible, yesterday Messrs. Kennedy and Smith, local offi cers of tho now companv, received in structions from headquarters to send in the right-of-way papers at their earliest convenience in order that the plans for construction may be completed. DUN* BUSINESS REVIEW. Holiday Trad* Generally Reported a* Unusually Light. NEW YORK, Dec. 26.—R. G. Dun ft Co's.

At Cleveland wholesale rad* is good, though the shoe trade is dull. General trade is good at Cincinnati and prospects very fair, cigarmakers exceeding last year's work. At Chicago sales and collections of merchandise excesd those of last year in spite of »oft country roads and the holiday trade is phenomenal. At Milwaukee open weather And Mild Weather Check* Trade, but trade in clothing, out the on bad roads retard trade, hut the holiday business ex ceeds last year's, though traders in coun try towns are suffering. At St.. Louis shoes and other seasonable goods is above the average, and money is easier. At Kausas City holiday trade is brisk, though the blockade affects receipts of cattle and grain, and other trade is fairly healthy. At St. I'aul, in spite of unseasonable weather, jobbing trade is K«od and jetail trade very active. At Omaha trade is good though money is close. Southern cities report less cheer fully, the low price of cotton causing the dullness at Memphis and Galveston and also at Savannah. But at New Orleans business is more active and larger in ume though cotton receipts are heavy and sugar is fairly active with money in strong demand. The great industries close the year with more than usual activity.
