New York. July 5 R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review says:
"Although the n*i \ fiscal year op ns
with an extended holiday, there fa
much encouragement in the evidence
of returning confidence, and statis-
tics for the last six months Indicate
that there Is no little reason for an
tloipating better things in the last half
of the year. Half-yearly returns of
insolvencies show that liabilities have
steadily decreased. Hallway earn-
ings that in earlier months have
shown losses of five per cent or more
in comparison with last year, exhibit
an increase of 2.C per cent for June.
Report* from leading brancjios of
trade for the last week testify to a
quiet condition, but scarcely more so
than is customary at this time of
the year, while inquiries in several
manufacturing directions promise n
better distribution in the near future.
Prospects are still favorable for largo
returns on the farms, despite some
loss from storms during the post
week. Confidence grows in the Iron
and steel Industry, although as yet
there is little support Is the shape
of increased orders.
"Hides are fairly firm, because of
smaller stocks than were held a year
ago. and decreasing receipts of eai.le:
but foreign dry hides are weaker.
•Failures this week in ilie l'nitod
States are 2!9, against 227 last week,
257 the preceding week, and 215 the
corresponding week last year. Fail-
ures in Canada number 11, against
32 for last week, 1C the preceding
week, and 7 last year."
New York.—Bradstrcet's report
Midsummer quiet rules general trade
and industry, but good crop prospects
make hope for a much more satisfac-
tory half yeor than has Just closed.
As yet the improvement is still large-
ly a matter of tone nud of better feel-
ing. and is apparently content to move
slowly until pending crop prospects
Dank clearings for six months will
fall at least 1-) per cent behind a year
ago. most of the decline being at New
York, because outside of that city the
decrease will not exceed four percent.
Railway earnings in June took a
turn for th" better, anil gross receipt*
will probably show n gain of three per
cent for the month though decreasing
two per cent for six months. The fis-
cal year, as a whole, owing to gains
la.-.i year, will show an increase of
six per evut in gross. Net earnings,
however, will probably show a slight

St. Ixitils. July 5.—Practically the
only feature of iMilitleal interest as-
sociated with the- approaching demo-

intended for shipment should be
"dipped" in a probation prescribed
