Bright Outlook for 1903.
Herry Ces' Weekly market letter, dated
New York, December 24, says:
T;e year is closing in much better shaoe
Ibaa cxprctea. Since the harvest, Improvement
nas rrea so marked that much of the ground
pxt C-rlns 4he -paalcky year of 1903 lias been
i'-.ed. Railroad earnings, bank clearings.
: -g irc-i production and other truetworthy ln-
at-ra n tell the story of revival: and there
lire no signs yet of the onward movement in
raving; reached Its climax. The out-
- k r-r 1905 is even brighten than that of
PC i e Amy hlndrahco to activity being the
f " te'-sal liigh level of prices. This would
-ggm that it is time to call a halt wore it
t.a owing to the National jrrowth our
f!r:a::es are still unable to rncet demands.
V " need more houses, mo euvi -mnr-

Seal Fur Trade In London.

jlsj- ,vi- hJrhAst IrkPfl realized on Victoria n
jC Tttr Ik many years ' was Secured last".
Iwe-k .1 London, England. Cable .advices to
rj rcaler has created a feeling of Jublla
ruUng a different complexion on the
"-!al returns of the year's industry to that
-h the most sanguine had anticipated.
Irtr can be no doubt but that the limited
"i. T"; of fur on the market, in consequence of
c? tem porary suspension of the Japanese hunt-
-S epe radons, has had an important Influence
n aT ting quotations. The cables vow to
st3te that the prices obtained for the
ccs:: skins was 4 Cd. and for the Bering
ifita skins 3 17b. This is about 10 per cent
j h-v.er than the prices of lost year."

GOOD HEALTHY ADVANCE
STOCKS MOVE UPWARD WITH NO
REACTIONARY EFFECT.
Money Remarkably Easy for This
Time of Year Northern Securi
ties at Top Point.
NEW YORK, Dec 29. There -was another
pretty comprehensive advance in prices of
stocks today, and the movement was without
any signs of speculative excitement or reac
tionary consequences which usually follow
traders buying for a turn. There was a
plainly perceived scarcity of stocks, and' the
buying was, therefore, easily cffecUve in lift
ing prices, whatever the nature of the buying
may be, whether for Investment in anticipa
tion of funds to be made available by Janu
ary disbursements, or for the benefit of mar
ket quotations to be reported In forthcoming
annual reports of financial Institutions, or to
afford a favorable price level on which to meet
the expected January Investment demand.
The buying, while without animation, was per
sistent at all price levels, and the advance In
prioes which resulted met with no important
obstaole in the way of selling orders.
The tone of the money market -was pro
nounced "very easy" today, which is a con
dition unprecedented of lato years, with only
two business days remaining to the end of
the year.
Reports were current that the long expected
Southern Pacific refunding would be under
taken at an early "date, and this view, coupled
with the aggressive rise In Northern Secur
ities on the curb to a new high record, was
tho ground for advancing the Pacific and
transcontinental group In concert. Amalga
mated Copper was buoyant under the Joint
Influence of a roarklng-up of crude copper, and
the making ot a deposition in Butte by Mr.
Helcxe that negotiations had been in progress
between himself and Amalgamated Copper in
terests. These and other specific 'Influences
radiated a tjentlment for the advance through
the rise, and in the lato dealings the market
took on a semblance of buoyancy and closed
strong.
Bonds were firm. Total sales, par value,
$6,555,000. "United States 2s and old 4a ad

SAN FRANCISCO MARKETS.
Exporters Hold Off on Nerr-Crojj Char
tering. SAN FRANCISCO, Dec 20. (Special.) Rain
In California and an opening break in Chicago
caused earfer speculative prices forSfeat dur
ing the early trading, but the subsequent rapid
advance In, Chicago led to a full recovery.
Prospects of more rain made a weaker closing.
Spot wheat was steady. Despite rain and
holiday Influences, barley1 continued firm, but
trade was quieter. Oats were firm and more
active. Flour and feedstuffs were steady.
Grain freights here are at a etandstlll, with
no inquiry for European loading, and rates are
nominal at about 15s. There is "a lack of
chartering for new-crop loading, as exporters
are waiting for definite knowledge about the
next crop. The prospects now favor a larger
crop than last year.
Inclement weather restricted business In the
fruit market. Some daH5r reported a better
feeling in the cheope'r grades of oronRes, with
a steady reduction of stock;. A few fancy
brands also move well. Apples, while not
active, are gradually cleaning up, as receipts
are lighter.
The potato market was moderately acttvo
and steady for all grades. Fancy Burbanks
were In limited supply and firm.. Sweets were
easier. Onions still have a declining tendency.
Receipts of tomatoes, beans and peas from the
South 3re much larger, and prices weaker.
Dressed turkeys were steady, but an abund
ance of chilled stock prevents a rise in fresh
goods.

STRENGTH COMES LATE
CHICAGO WHEAT MARKET OPENS
WITH DECLINES.
Government Report on Crop of 1904
Disappoints Bull Traders Good
Demand Later.
CHICAGO, Dec 29. Strength in cheat de
veloped late In the day. The Government re
port giving final figures on the crop of 1904
was considerable of a disappointment to bull
traders, and In consequence, when, trading be
gan, the pit was flooded with selling orders.
Those who had bought confidently yesterday
on tho expectation that the report would be
bullish were anxious sellers. Predictions had
been freely made that the official flgurea would
not show over 500.000.000 Dushels as tho total
yield of wheat grown In the United States
during 1904. It was a distinct surprise to
many operators that the Government experts
estimated the total at 552.000.000 bushels. The
reception given the report was manifested by
sharp Initial declines. A break of a penny
at Liverpool had a weakening Influence on
prlcea here The market soon recovered a por
tion of th.e early loss, however, on moderate
covering by shorts. There was also some buy
ing on an Argentine cable claiming that new
crop arrivals were of poor quality. Brad
street'a estimate of a decrease of 710.000
bushels in the world's visible supply, instead
of an increase anticipated, was a decisive fac
tor contributing to bullish sentiment. There
was a sharp advance late. In the day, 'as a
result of excellent demand. One of the bull
leaders was a conspicuous buyer. May sold up
to $1.14. The market held firm the last of
the session, the close being almost at the high
est point Final figures for May wero $1.143s.
a gain of ?4c.
Weakness of wheat had some effect on the
corn market early In the day. May closed un
changed at 43ajc
Trading in oats was of a scalping character,
and prices showed only slight fluctuations.
May closed at 31c.
At the opening sentiment In the provision
market was quite firm, as a result of de
creased receipts of hogs. At tho close May
pork was off 57c. at $2. SO; lard was down

"Let them send me good soldiers," "the
General Is quoted as saying, "and I will
accomplish the task. Examine tho con
opkins & Qo.
dition of tho troops. You will see a great
change since the Autumn. "Write the
facts. It is better that the people at
home should know the truth than hear
praise on one side and slander on the
other Tho troops are in good spirits and
well sheltered and clothed. There are
some deficiencies, but I am more than
satisfied. The health of the men la splen
did. The percentage of sickness is less
than in time of peace, which Is attribut
able to good air and the absence of the
evils of barrack life."

Teachers Advised by Ex-Lieutenant-Governor
Woodruff.
CHICAGO. Dec. 29. Timothy jU Wood
ruff, ex-LJeutenant-Governor of New
York. In a speech delivered at the Na
tional convention of the Commercial and
Shorthand Teachers Association last
night, said that the large cities furnished
the opportunities and that the teachers
should make their fight for success in cit
ies like New York and Chicago,
"The opportunities that present them
selves to young men and young women in
all the great centers of population are
abundant today," he said.
"If a young jnan or young woman Is
earnest of purpose and diligent. Is it
not wiser to seek a thing where it abounds,
even if competition, for it Is great, rather
than to seek it where competition is less,
but where it may not exist at all?"
"The real secret of success," he con
tinued, "in commercial life lies in willing
ness and In an effort to do something
more than merely perform the routine
work demanded of the position.
"Among all of the opportunities which
this country affords, none comes more
frequently or with greater promise than
those which are within the grasp ot the
stenographer or the typewritiat."
