I, with tu as and NEW YcfeK, Jan, 20.—Bradstreet's ?e- gort sayS: • The improvement in industrial and commercial lines heretofore reported continues to grow moderately and shows gains from Week to week, although more conspicuously in man- fttfacttfring than in commercial lines. This is indicated by the records of sixty-two resumptions of more important manufacturing establishments this week compared with seventeen shut-downs, and by the total of »84<y 227,000, the bank clearings of the week at fifty-four cities, which is 0 per cent smaller ithan in the preceding week and 31 per .cent smaller than .in the like week last year. More conspicuous increases in sales by the jobbers of dry goods, clothing* shoos, and hats, while improvement in the industrial situation is reported is reported from Lewiston, Maine, Newark, and Pittsburg. There is a much better demand for iron, although at cut prices, and quotations in some lines of iron and steel are "below figures at (which' it ,was supposed possible to produce. Sales of raw wool are larger, notably at Boston.although quototlons arc shaded. Eastern cot-. ton mills are active, but product is not selling freely. Aside from the -depressing influence of an unpreccdeatcdly low range of prices for leading staples, a heavy drag .on general trade now is uncertainty as to tl}e outcome of the tariff legislation. Stocks of available wheat decreased in the United States, both coasts, last week 70i,000 bushels, in Europe .and afloat for Europe 472,000 bushels, .and increased in Australia 1,900,000 bushels. Receipts of cotton for. five months of the current cotton year arc about 0,075,000. bales, IS per cent more than in the corresponding period last year. Bradstreet's annual analysis is of more than 17,000 business failures in the United States and Canada last year shows a net gain of more thun 8,000 in. the total business population in the United States in 1803 compared with 1802, notwithstanding panic and depression during seven months of last year. Exports of wheat in the United States and Canada, both consts (flour included us wheat) equal y,H4-7,000 bushels this week, » per cent loses than last week, bat 10 per cent more than in the week a year ago, and .15 percent less than in the week two years ago.^ There is continued improvement in Ohicrgo in wholesale lines, notably clothing, shoes, hardware and groceries. St. Louis reports sales of hats in good volume for February and March delivery, that shoe manufacturers, arc employing more operatives, and that merchant and pig iron markets continue to improve. The movement of merchandise at Kansas City opened fairly this week, but severe storms have checked it. Money is accumulating at that city. Trade is better ut Omaha, due in part to demand caused by change in the weather. Shoes lire selling- well, but live stock prices lire lower. There is no change at Milwaukee nor at St. Paul, except a moderate cheek in dealings, due to the weather, accompanied by more uctlv-ity in hardware, At Minneapolis jobbing in some lines compares favorably with that in previous Januarys, while at Diiluth tho previous week-, and collections are no better. Failures in the United States were 410 this week, against 25."> last year, aud Tifi in Canada, against, 40 lust year. None arc of great magnitude.

A woman named Morrison and her children were found frozen in Pawnee county. An unknown tramp was found frozen on a Santa Fe train iu the strip. John Carter, a teamster of Orlando, had both hands so badly frozen that ain- pvitation will be necessary, and there are undoubtedly other fatalities- The suffering among tho new settlers was terrible and umny are ill from exposure. Organized Labor on tlui Warpath. OsjAiiA, Neb., Jan. »0.—There is considerable talk in organized labor circles of filing au injunction to restrain S. tt. H. Clark, Oliver W. Mink, John W, Doane, E. Ellery Anderson and Frederick Coudert, receivers of the Union I'aciftc system, from enforcing the proposed new schedule of salaries. Certain "it is that the men will not submit to the n ew schedule without making a fight and it is more than probable they will resort to injunctions, as this seems the popular way of settling grievances.

The consideration pf OTga^ai^tegftm^xt^pft v i»i?> ISA-LA ' 6f t exA§» irl| '&> says CoL L. M. Martin, the pAti^ Sent railway man of lowa t who iust returned from an ektended ihfough the southj and after i several days at La J*orte „ , _ ts resources, climate, etc., he awarua- the palm to the above place. Gol< ' tfartm is no stranger to the people ot Iowa, llis name is well known m thousands of cfur citizens' horned a* being a successful, self made businessman, hence his Opinion on a subject tti this kind will carry with it gfreafc ', weight. Educated in the local freight and ticket offices of our ^est low* roads, he has heard the subject of immigration discussed in all its variotoa :orma ami has in his official capacity^' way-billed as many car loads of emigrant movables and sold as rnaBy" tickets to families seeking new homes as any man of his age in the state. Being promoted from time to time until he now stands at the top of his chosen jrofession, he has made a close study >f newly developed countries, and when le puts his seal of apprc\ al OU any one particular locality it means something, "Why," said Col. Martin, "on ;he 8th day of January I saw oranges pellow among the green leaves o£ tho jrange trees; I dug new potatoes as :arge as a man's fist, pulled new rad* shes from their beds, walked and drove over acres and acres of truck jardens filled with rows ofcabbagesi aeets, turnips, strawberries, in fact everything that grows in a well regu* .ated garden. Besides this I saw great orchards of peach, fig and pear trees, soft shelled almonds, olives and lother iropical fruits, and nuts, all looking aS 'resh and thrifty as though the cold frosts' of our northern climate were unknown.". When asked about the. lenvperature of the climate, Col. Mar- > tin stated that the highest the thermometer was ever known to go in the summer months was 00, and the lowest n the winter 40, and only then on rare occasions when the tail end of a norther struck them. La Porte is located between Galveston and San Jacinto bays, s forty-five feet above sea level, and is by far the best harbor on the southern coast. It eclipses Galveston for the reason that while it has practically the same depth of water as Galveston, instead of having but a mile and a half of wharfage it has from'ten to twenty- 3ve miles as may be required which is ;o be free'to elevators, ship yards and all industries locating there. La Porte is supplied with the- most delightful _drinking water in the world, 'rom artesian welle, which are abso- utely inexhaustible, aud as pure as water . can possibly be. Eighteen months ago there wasn't a single house n the town. To-day it numbers one ihousand souls. Has three good hotels, ,wenty miles of shell streets, electric ights and other luxuries of life naturally following a live city. When asked what would support and tnain- .ain the city, Col. Martin said: "I will ^xplaln by telling you that the whole •urrounding country is, laid off into ;en-acre fields for truck gardening. These fields are fast being, purchased ay northern farmers, coming from tho states of New York, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska, who are fast .earning that tbey can easily make more money on tea acres of that ground, than they can on 140 acres of our northern soil. The vegetables from these farms are ready for market much v earlier than those grown in California, and being much nearer St. Lonis, Chi- wgo, Kansas City and Denver,- very large prices can be obtained, and besides in many instances three crops may be raised each year.- Again, La Porte is the gateway through which all tlie products ot the vast state of Texas, together with Kansas, Nebraska, ' Colorado, Iowa and other western states must pass. This of itself alone will make a second Seattle of La Porte, to say nothing of its advantages as a winter resort for northern people and a summer resort for southern^ people. It has the finest beach for bathing in the world. I can't begin to enumerate all its advantages," said Col. Martin. I was so impressed with its future that I have made some investments, and to those of my Iowa friends who are contemplating leaving Iowa I would strongly advise their looking into La Porte, its present and future."; There is no doubt but that the Colonel is deeply in earnest in what he says and is a strong believer in that portion of Texas.
