TRADE IS SATISFACTORY,,
Paclle Coast snd the South Show Up Best
Slijht Diminution of Exports.
Bradstreet's says: Despite some ir
regularities la reports from different
section and industries, trade, as a
wbole is of satisfactory volume for
tbis time of year. Relatively the best
reports come from tbe Pacific coast,
tbe Sooth snd the Southwest, where
the spring demand is opening well.
Unseasonable weather in some sec
tions, notably the East, has been a bar
to activity in retail trade. Special ac
tivity has been noted in some branches
of tbe iron trade end sentiment bas
been, on the wbole, belped by a clearer .
view ot tbe possibilities contained in
tbe recent "war talk." The quieting
down of business Abroad naturally
points to some diminution of our ex .
port trade, in tbe tedder form of iron
and steel, copr- and lumber, but for
finished products of these end other
staples, tbe ontlook is declared to be
still satisfactory. A feature in the
export line tbis week was the shipment
of 8,000 tons of steel billets to Glas
gow from Birmingham, Ala., the
largest shipment of tbis material ever
sent abroad from the South. Ilevya
quantities of railway material to re
place that destroyed in China may be
placed in this country. Among the
metals copper is weak end fractional
ly lower, in sympathy with a break in
prices abroad, but tin is higher, on -news
ot excited markets And higher
price in London.
Wheat, including flour, shipments
for the week aggregate 4,838,678 bush
els, against 3,336,054 last week.
Business failures in the United States
