REVIEW PF WEEK'S BUSINESS THE imilFT LAST >VKKK A LITTLE .HOKK EXOI KA<i|><i. The Adjoui-nnicni (if ConKress One of ' the "l>an?«''st Faftors in Kcllev- in^ Business Situation . New Yo'.rlt, Mar. 6.—The drift of affairs this: week has been more encouraging. Congress adjourned, much to jthe reficf oC business men with large responsibilities; and the war, "While lacking in decisive events; promises to be of shorter duration than sometimes feared. Home business conditions iare certainly becoming more' satisfactory. There is no doubt tliat domcs'tic trade condition's; are generally sound. The volume of business. It is true; is very moderate. This is partly due to lack of confidence and universal conservatism. The number of unemployed is large; railroad earnings and bank clteirings confirm trade inactivity,' and the spirit of economy has almost eyerywhere. supplanted the spirit of extravagajjce. Without the war we should probably have^had to fact' Bprae reaction, and the winder is that depression has not been worse, in the agricultural regions there is lil- •tle cause for complaint; the situation in the gain districts being generally satisfactory owing to the large foreign demand and good prices for all food product^;' The cotton belt is the exception; inasmuch as it feelg the reduction, of foreign demand as well as t'he lower prices which growers are forced to-accmpt- What the next season will bring to tiie South is an interesting ))roblem, since it is certain that less cotton will be grown and more grain. Canada too. is making strenuous efforts to increase her wheat crop; so that the next harvest will .plainly reficct war influences. Europe \yill be obliged to grow less on her farms the coming season, and it will rt>main for other portions of the worlfl, especially N'ortli America, ito make good the deijcienciei. One of the most satisfactory symntomg of, ' .recovery is the slow but sur^ihcrease i iof activitiy in the iron trade. Orders are Coming in more rreely for many steel products, and the proportion of unemployed plants is steadily decreasing,i Better prices are also occasionally obtained; although this industry slill has much room for iin- proveinent before normal conditions ~ are attafned. There is moreover a better, feeling and some lessening of depressidnj in th cotton and woolen ' industries,'which for months have been embarrassed by dull business and. serious uncertainties in the cotton/and wool markets'arising from the war. The distributing branches of trade are generally in isound condition, and "though the volume of busi ness coi|tinues below normal, joljbers are usuijUy carrying small supplies and thefr credit posU;on is sound. With thjB advent of spring some improvement is inevitable. Construction work will begin and transportation iwill resume seasonal activity. . Our foreign trade is still much de;ranged, and imports show a persisl- ient decline which will femporarily impair the national revenue from customs and may rieces^tate some new government financing later on. Exports arfe well maintarned in spite of I restrictiije cohdiUons and the latest [.returns show a contnued liberal excess of exports. This -large balance is, of course, being reduced by the un seen items in the fo,reign trade account, but exchange has been hovering around the gold importing point and further sums of the precious niet al may come this way at any time, considerable amounts having arrived this week. The influx or gold is being discouraged, however, paitly by the return of securities from abroad, and partly owing to a disposition among banker on both sides'to allow gold to ! remain where it is most needed, I which, of course, is; on the other side. There is evidently a friendly understanding between the bankers in New York and lx)ndon, and it necessary London will be able to obtain lineral credits in this market, which will defer or restKlin unnecessary gold imports. The grain movement has nearly reached its climax; and \vlien the liardanelles are opened the outpour of Riissian grain will check our,exports and restrain high prices here. The money situation is exceedingly easy. Demands for business accommodation are of courgt, small, and fun<ls are now returning from the ag­ ricultural districts. The outlook !• consequently, for easy rates for some time to come, excepting- tlie slight stringency which may develop as usual around the first of April. There is unciuestionably a larger ainount of funds awaiting investment than is generally supiiosod. Lack of confidence has induced many investors to hold back for more assuring conditions. The belief that European llqui datioh is incomplete and that the placing of enorinous government issues abroad will insure better rates for capital has also been a factor in making investors hesitate. Security holders have bad to face very discouraging influences, abroad and at home. So far as the war is con-; cerjicd it looks as if il.'; very severi­ ty would hasten the end. Public opin ion has been consj&erably stirred by the embargo activities of the belligerents; but the worst effects of these movements have already been felt, and there Is no reason for Americans to fake other than calm and hopeful views of the outcome. Peace cannot be expected immediately since the bet ter prospcfs of success to the Allies will only strengthen their determination to carry the struggle to an end which they deem satisfaetery., The strain of the war has' thus far been less severe than mignt be expected. Great Britain is showing extraordinary financial strength, having so far met expenses with little difficulty, and also afforded important financial aid to, Russia, Belgium and other hellig- I - OEfiTH^ORO,/2-/y//jA ;i| Z-iWESTCRN COAST (CoflUhr 3-OAKBY<'fey/«A; 4- Rio ^PAR AKiA /ir /y //j^;| 6-eVELYN {^mtricMf 9*<blMORAH; (frencAJ II •DOWNSHIRE. erents. France Is 'meeting the war successfully, being a country of exceptional financial strength. British Consols are now; selling a little below 69, compared with about 7.") a year ago, a drop of about 6 points. French , Rentes are selling ar about 70, com-! pared with 88 a year ago, a drop of j about 18 points. ' The New York stock market has | responded to better influences and I shows a general rising tendency. Spec I ulation is not active, but prices experienced considerable luctuation. A fair degree of activity was shown in the bond market, partly owing to sales on foreign . account. There is good buying, however, of the better class of bonds, prices of which are well sustained. The amount of new issues awnoiinced in February was over $260,0()0,000, of which about $160. POO.POO represented railroad bonds. A large proportion of these issues, however, were for refunding purposes; the maturities in February alone being estimated at nearly $60,000,000. With the close of Congress business men will have relief from the harass j of hostile legislation. Fortunately there has been a decided abatement of the opposition to railroads and larg «3 industrial corporatiin ,K, which, when other Conditions permit will materially aid busineoE recovery. Mr. Wilson has promised to give big business 9s fai rchance, and it is to be hoped noth ing will interfere with the full and free execution of this promise.
