Dun & Co.'s weekly review ol trade says: "Business begins May In bett«r condition than at any other time itlnce tho break down In May, 189& Smaller In volume thae then, It IB not now shrinking, but enlarging. The chief obstacle! to a more complete recovery In the anxiety of msny to pluck fruit before It Is ripe. Holders ot some staples have lifted them BO far as to prevent their marketing; consumption of materials In lome branches 18 checked by advances which cannot be realized for finished products; workers In some Indus- tried are demanding wago« that cannot be paid out of any business In sight. In tho Labor World. "In spite of labor troubles and speculative excesses tho outlook brightens, money markets continue healthy, and with sales of railway bonds abroad, tho deficiency In public revenue, *8,7«!,MO In April, causes no apprehension. Demands for full restoration of wages lo the level of 1882 have cloned many woolon mills, and threaten to close others employing about 9,000 hands at OlnoyvlUe and about Providence, and have »r- reffted work at other mills or some importance already. Similar demands are made in cotton mills In Massachusetts. The strike wnloh closed iron furnaces at Newcastle, Pa., has Just ended without success. But other strikes have stopped numerous works about Pittsburgh. Pocahontas coke workers are on strike, and one Is threatened by Alabama coke miners. Exaggerated accounts of recovery In business, so often published irad sometime! prompted by manufacturers themselves, make it not entirely strange If operatives fall to see that tho business la tho great Indus trios Is without profit, and much of tho working force Is still unemployed. Wheat and Cotton. "The speculative fever grows more fierce, as Is natural when business starts up with prices at extreme low points, but by lifting wheat three cents, to 69 cents, Atlantic exports have been checked and, flour Included, have been only 1,376,198 bushels against 3,015,484 last year, The close was ut (!8W cents. Western receipts are now larger than a year ago, and, except in pans of some stutes, the promise for tho next yield la excellent. A sale o! UOO.OOO cons by tbe Fair estate at San Franclsoo, loading thirty ships for Europe, will Itissoa other dozouads on Atlantic supplies. "Enormous transactions in cotton have boon followed by a decline from 7 to 0.81 cents, though peace In China wus represented as aa- surloff a t'ruutiy increased demand. Volume of Business .Larger. "The volume of business reflected by clear- Ings Is 13.U per cent, larger than lust year for tho month, but 1S.O por cent, smaller than In 18»8. Thore Is also coropurath-o Improvement in foreign trade, exports for the month bolng not 1 per cent below last year's, while imports are but 12.^ por cent larger than last year. Xhu Iron Trade. "The strike at Newcastle, now over, stiffened Bessemer pig so that $10.75 was quoted at Pittsburgh, uufl the closing of a \Vh6ollng mill KtlKeuud billots, while southern makers have nominally advanced their prioo, though sales have boon mudo here under $10 for No. i Additional contracts for structure works here and at Chfauao, sales of 7,000 rails at the east, a bettor demand for wire and its products, and for plates imd sheets, arc the encouraging- features this weak. "Cotton ties are a shade higher at 63 cents per bundle, aod wire nails at 86 ana "cut nalin at 70 cents by carload are less demoralized. Consumption does not yet equal capacity of works or output of pis, but Improves. Late In the week Important strikes in Iron works about Pittsburgh threaten serious disturbances. iliBi) lu Leather. "Tho remarkable rise In leather continues, and yot shipments of boots and shoes from Boston lor April were slightly larger than two yeare ago or ever before, and most of the works have orders lor three or four months' production nt a material advance in prices. The chlo! embarrassment is uncertainty as to tho future price of leather. The rise In prices of cotton goods also continues. Tho woolen year ends with the lowest prices yet known. The Fwlluro Kecorcl. "Failures In twenty-five clays of April showed liabilities of $8,538,960. of which 83,014,738 were of manufacturing and $5.705,660 of trading concerns. Last yoar In four weeks ending April K, liabilities were 88,820,8(53, of which $3.687,£;0 were of manufacturing, and £4,077,606 of trailing concerns. Tho week's failures are 231 In tho United Slates against J33 last year, and thirty-four in Canada, against thirty-live last year," Mradsfreet'a View. Bradstreet's says: "The manifest improvement In many llnei of general trade has resulted In an Increased volume of business, notwithstanding Idleness of 9,000 Ehode Island worsted mill operatives and many in other industrial lines.' Industrial unrest now takes the form of striking for higher wages. This week about fiO.OOO Industrial em* ployos, principally coal miners and cotton sno. woolen mill employes have struck and the tendency does not seem to be chocked. About 8,000 people are reported to have obtained higher wages without striking, "April bank clearings reflect improved demand for staples and enlarged speculation In stocks and bonds, wheat, petroleum and cotton InM monthly aggregate which Is, with two exceptions, tho largei; reported since June, 18*3. Three-fourths of all the cities reporting show Increases over April, 1894, special improvement being noted In tho eastern and middle state> and In the south and southwest The far western group alone show* a deoreasn. "Throughout the "west all preceding gains are retained. At Chicago and St. Louis the volume of trade Is as large or larger than at a like period In 1S8J, a year of heavy traffic, iron and steol, dry goods, hardware and building materials loading in activity.. Similar advices arc received from Cincinnati, Kansas City, Minneapolis, St. Paul and other points. -Xashr v!Ue and Galvoston report some little improvement In the volume of .business, but they prove the exceptions among' southern cities. Trade Improvement on the Pacific coast has evidently satin." Gordon, who killed, his wile and Archie D. Brown, son of the governor of Kentucky, was unable to attend court Saturday morning 1 . The trial has been postponed until Tuesday, May 7. ARE FOR SILVER. Cook County DeUratel Cho»en for Sprint* field Monetary Conference, Joae o. CHICAGO, May 4.—Delegates to the Coolr county democratic convention-^ chosen for the purpose of selecting 353 delegates to the Spring-field monetary convention, June 3, met Saturday morning'. Judge Samuel P. McDonnell was chosen temporary chairman. In his speech of acceptance Judge McConnell severely criticised President Cleveland for not carrying out the promises on which he was made president In regard to finances. "Mr. Cleveland," said Judge 'McCoanell, "has repudiated hi« party. To-day we repudiate him. We stand here to-day pledged to the cause of silver. The policy of Grovor Cleveland Is not the policy of the democratic party." Every utterance against Mr. Cleveland was mot with cheers. The temporary organization was made permanent. Congressman W. J. Bryan, of Nebraska, then addressed the convention. lie received an enthusiastic reception as he stepped on the platform. Mr. Bryan said he came to bring greetings from the democrats of Nebraska, who were the first to raise the standard of siiteeu to one. He was not here, '. he said, to abuse Mr. Cleveland, but he conld not help protesting against Cleveland's letter in Saturday morning's papers, which indicates that no man has a right to hold office iu this country unless he bows to the head of the administration. It was nonsense, continued the speaker, to attempt to read out of the party men who differed with him n opinion. Eckels was perfectly harmless. Free silver men need not fear him. "There Is no such thiug as an honest dollar,' 1 said Mr. Bryan. "There Is no stable standard of value. Tho best we caa do Is to flnd a metal which will come as near to this as possible. The reason I call a gold dollar a dishonest dollar, and tho organization that advocates such a dollar a dishonest money league', is because a gold dollar, !f there were no other, would constantly Increase !n value, making the debtor poorer and the creditor richer all the time. Even If we desired a single gold standard, there isn't enough gold In the world to make all tho money." Mr, Bryan thought the plank adopted by Illinois on the- financial question would be the one adopted by the democracy in 189U. The platform declaring- in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver at 10 to 1 and against an international agreement was then adopted, with but few votes recorded against it. The convention selected its delegates and adjourned. IOWA MOUENS.

Askedabout the proposed International monetary conference of which he is a member, Mr. Daniel stated that in his opinion, it was extremely doubtful if tbe conference would ever be held.

Even if it should be held, the senator thought it woald not result in an international agreement on the silver question.
