G GRACE 426 BROADWAY, GAIN STEADILY. Improvement in Industrial Conditions Still Continues, As Does Also the Rise in Speculative Markets — Future Prospects of Trade Good. YonK, April 27.— R. G. Dun <fc Co.'s weekly review ol trade says: "Neither tho rising In speculative markets nor the steady Rain In industries has ceased, and IE Is wholesome tiat there" arc fewer signs of hesitation In tho productive Industries than In speculative prices. Wages strikes jrrow more numerous and cause some trouble, uud retail demand ings behind wholesale sales and jobbing purchases behind production in BOrno brunches, but through many conllictlnj? reports the fact shines out that the Industries are Raining, not with a rush and a whirl, bin, mora safely. It Is loss clear that railroads arc Increasing their earnings, or that over production of eolton will be cured by tho advance of IX cents In price, or that cornering short sellers of wheat will help to market tho large surplus. Due revival of activity In all theso •directions, if possible, excessive In some, helps ocDlldence to take tho throne so long Sold by distrust. Recovery is not often mathematically equitable. When tho load of depression Is lifted. and men flnfl that bettor things have come to stay. there must be many contradictory changes. Quito a number of works haTfi advanced wages during tho week, but strikes to compel an advance, possible for some but not for others, have grown much more numerous. Some shops are closing for want of orders, but a larger cumber are resuming work. Prices of shoes and cotton goods »ro rising; wool and woolens arc lower. It would be u distinctly unnatural movement, Inviting only distrust, If it were sympathetic and with equal stop In all branches, Shoe and Leather Tr»<lo. 'Doubt whether hides and whether leather would bo held at higher prices hindered shoo manufacturers for a time, but now jobbers want to give more orders than manufacturers care to talio, who have their leather yet to buy. The hindrance Is tho advance In hides and leather, for while Ttf and 10 coats more Is for shoes, tho present cost of leather aakos many 10 to 18 oeuts dourer, and 8 cents j ?ald for western hides Is said to mean higher >rlces vot for some kinds oflcathor, Cotton mills ure getting more money for goods and have quite generally advanced wages. Tho consumption is large, and ftd- ances seem to bo warranted. Tho Iron Industry, "Iron production, stimulated because ore, colce and oil were to Uo dearer, is retarded by shrinking demand for products, for on tho whole, now business Is said to bo smaller than In February or Maroh. The structural do- mucd fur buildings throughout tho country was never better. Wool Prlccn Aw»y IJown. "Wool lias sold ar, tho lowest prices on record this weelc, I<3 cent-s for Ohio XX and 0 cents for year's Texas, and offers to eleur ofl stock before now supplies carno forward tempt manufacturers LO purchase beyond present noods. \YhciLt £xporttf Chocked.

"Bank exchanges In April, thus far, average dally 11.0 per cent, more than last year, but 1C.3 per cent, less than In 1893, Money Is coming Mthor from the Interior and a larger demand for commercial loans appears, especially from manufacturing towns In Now England and from Importers.

Bradstreet's says: "The feature of tho week Is tho continued strength of prices of staples after the striking advances of preceding weeks. Per-: haps the most relentless advance has been In hides within ton days. Bessemer pig Iron and stool billets aro practically unchanged 'In prices, with demand on the whole rather less, but prices are firm.

Fences and outbuildings aro blown down in every direction. Horses, cattle, sheep and poultry wherever exposed were killed 'by the hail or driven to death by the wind. Reports from surrounding points .in the country are very meager, but indicate even more serious damage than was sustained in this city, and it is certain that several people, mostly ne- groes, living in unstable cabins, have been killed. The hailstones \vero so largo that after several hours exposure in the sun they were still as large as partridge <Jggs. The storm passed through a channel not more than 15 miles either way from Cam den. ODD FELLOWS CELEBRATE. SCORES DROWNED. Frightful Disaster Occurs Near Town of Epinal, France.
