WEEKLY TRADE REVIEW.
Encouraging Reports Come From
the Western Centers.
Bradstreet's says: Trade reports
from the distributive centers at the
West continue encouraging, while
such measure of trade volume as
bank clearings and railway earnings
Indicate a considerable gain In busi
ness over a year ago. Soft spots are,
of course, to be found, uotably In
the manufacturing branches of the
cotton and he wool trade, but ad
vices from the dry goods and cloth
ing distributors are encouraging, and
It Is thought will "help business. The
strength of Iron and steel this week
recalls the boom of 1899. It Is prob
able, too, that the broad and strong
consumptive demand and not the Ope
rations of pools or cliques, Is respon
sible for the steady advances. Prac
tically all markets report Iron and
steel higher, but special activity it
noted at Pittsburg, Birmingham and
Chicago; St. Louis alone reporte
foundry Iron consumer Indifferent
The cereal are without notable
change, wheat and corn being frac
tionally lower In a dull, scalping mar
ket. Lumber is strong In price, pend
ing the resumption of general build
ing operations. Western advices are
especially bullish. Chicago has don
the heaviest business ever recorded
In yellow pine and white pine. Stock
have been broken badly by the active
demand. Hard woods are rather
slower to respond, however, and are
still unsteady, not to ay weak. Cop
per is less active for export, but
hold firm, while tin Is again lower
