INSURANCE REFUSED Oil WOODEN VESSELS Owners Are Compelled to Take Their Chances Unprotected on the Lakes This Season or Be Sf-isfied With Collision Policies. RISK COMPANIES DODGE BUSINESS AT ANY PRICE Underwriters Hard Pressed Even to Cover Big Steel Steamships Cooperative Schemes Talked Of, but Fail to Take Shape. "If yoar boats were at eel." said a snarl oe underwriter to tbe owner of a fleet of wooden steamships yesterday, "we shoo Id Ilk to talk business with you. But we east do nothing with wooden boats." "I can see no way to change wooden vessels Into steel ahipa," said the owner, "and it looks to me as if 1 will have to so without laamranee this aeaaon." This talk Is a fair Indication of the outlook for wooden vessels this spring In the way of Insurance. A few have been cared for by the underwriters, bat M per cent of the wooden tonnage is still uncovered, and will likely run through tbe season without general Insurance. Refased at Aay Prlee. Some owners are taklnsr umji insurance and letting tt go at that. One general agent of a big Insurance company, who la also the manager of some wooden steam-shlpa, has so far been able to get only col lision insurance. It does not seem to be a question so much of rates, which ars themselves almost prohibitory, as a disinclination on tbe part of marine underwriters to have wooden vessels of the ordinary type on their books at alL There Is some talk of mutual companies, by which vessel owners can secure a limited insurance among themselves, but thus far none of these projects has taken definite shape. Hard Evea for Steel Ships. In covering steel sbfps underwriters are now working night and day. Without any additions to the number of insurance companies doing business this season. It has become somewhat difficult to place the big steamships of high valuation. Every company, of coarse, has a limit to the amount it will carry on a slngla ship, and It Is said that It takes practically every company doing business on the lakes to corer some of the big fellows now going Into service. When the $1,000,000 steamships of the Detroit and Cleveland line comes out tbe combined capacity of tbe lake underwriters will not cover over half the value. Marlae Votes, .

WHOLESOME STATE OF TRADE UNHURT BY MONEY STRINGENCY Dbb's Review Shown Coadltloas to Have Improved, With Boslaess Near Record Proportions. NEW YORK. April 13 R. G. Don tt Co. 'a weekly review of trade tomorrow will say: "Stringency In the money market has caused no Interruption to the wholesome progress of trade and Industry, although tending to develop conservatism in speculative departments. Weather conditions accelerate the distribution of seasonable merchandise, and retail business Is of large volume outside the immediate Tlclnity of tbe coal mines and a few other placea where local controversies have their influence. Building- operations are only limited by the supply of labor and material, which cause frequent delays, and tbe heavy consumption of all commodities Is shown by tbe highest level of quotations since February, ISS4. Manufacturing plants are fully engaged, pig Iron production la at the maxj-mum, shipments of footwear from Boston exceed those of any previous' year, and a stronger ton is reported at the textile mills. "Failures this week numbered 19$ In tbe United States, against 214 last year, and 20 In Canada, compared with 20 a year ago." Be-aaat reel's Report, Bradstreet's tomorrow will aay: "Trade displays more animation, weather conditions, retail business, and, to some extent, collections improving In unison. Easter season Influences have been a stimulus even where low temperatures, heavy rains, or bad roads have occurred, and few complaints as to retail trade are noted. These latter, by the way. ara most in the East. Generally speaking, the weather West and South has been good,- and some lost ground has been regained In planting,-though the crop planting season is still fully ten days late. The spring Jobbing trado Is nearly over, but some reorders are-noted,' and there Is free buying of fall goods.- Among the industries favorable features are the activity lo building and the partial settlements and advances granted Is' tbe central an Westera bituminous coal fields." -1 : Chleago Trade Review.
