"The holiday trade generally is large, though at some points is more confined to cheap goods than usual, and the influence of an increase in the •working force is felt in other ways. Until the new year, the only material changes expected are such as prepare for a large business next year. In the iron and steel industry these appear of the utmost importance. "The exports of cotton are naturally stimulated by lower prices, and, with forced liquidation of important speculative operations, cotton' has declined to 7.12 cents, recovering to 7.19. On July 15 the price was 7.06. Short-crop stories raised it to 8.87 Sept. 10, and it has now gone back about to the starting point. The receipts from plantations continue heavy, while commercial stocks here and abroad are only about as large as a year ago when the movement had been 1,100,000 bales less. The demand for goods in this country falls below the increased pro duction, and the market Is weak in tone, with prices of some jobbers bleached goods sharply reduced "The speculation in wool has halted. The demand for goods seems to have been postponed until after the holidays. "The control of the Mountain Iron Mesaba mine has been leased for fifty years or purchased by the Carnegie interest from J. D. Rockefeller. This, with the erection of sixteen new open dearth furnaces, making thirty-six, insures an enormous increase of the product at extreme low cost, and will affect all combinations in steel products or in ore. "The billet pool has practically 'dissolved, and sales are reported at ?16 to $17, with contracts to supply consumers through most or the whole of next year. The beam pool has revived and restored the price to $155, but nails and steel bars are a shade lower. The rail association has been in session and our Philadelphia dispatch states that rails are sold at $25, against $28 so long maintained. •..'•' "The boot and shoe industry is near the end of the orders, and receives scarcely any of the advances asked, but the Eastern shipments are still large. "Wheat rose about 2c Monday, but declined still further and closed J /^c lower .for the week. The receipts in two weeks have been 6,625,382 bushels, against 11,600,587 bushels last year, and Atlantic exports have been, flour included, 6,921,144 bushels, against 5,907,824 bushels last year. November ox- ports, flour included, were 15,835,136 bushels, against 11,332,140 bushels last year of which Pacific were 5,818.14!) bushels, against 4,405,301 bushels last year For three months exports of cotton and bread stuffs only have about equaled the total value of all imports. "The failures for the week have been 367 in the United States, against 377 last year, and 47 in Canada, against 32 last year." _ . m CfbWft Dec. 10.— A pcetff?M,$fitti& cha'mlrer tipofl tfae occasion of the the allowance to bsi Voted fof ' of the 1 prince oi iTaplfes, cfo»ti of Italy* in the course of Signot Costa, socialist, {tettotinc'et< K ,t proposal to gfant an allowance crown priface and urged the 6f all allowance to the crowtj. tintnfae: his speech, he declared the mdnarch Was hot only a but a dangerous institution, the president of the chamber tupted him ahd forbade him lo further.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 10. —The attention I of officials here has been attracted by [ the stories coming from all p ortions of the country indicating that enlistments I are going on of parties of men to goto] Cuba to join the insurgents in theii I struggle against the Spaniards. These 1 ] enlistments are in direct violation of I the neutrality laws and are p rphibitc|j under severe penalties. For accepting I a commission to serve against Spain, a I country with which the United States! is now at peace, the penalty prescribcdl by the revised statutes is 83,000 fine! and three years' imprisonment, wlnlel enlistment to serve against Spain or I hiring any one to enlist, the penalty isl almost as heavy, being a maximum'ofI 81,000 fine and three years' imprison-1 ment. The enforcement of these laws! naturally falls within the functions oil the United States officials, to whose f knowledge the attempt at infringe-'! ment is brought, but if the'movements f continue on as large a scale as reported, it is probable that the department of' justice will send instructions of a special character to all of its agents, calling their attention to the proclamation issued by the president last spring and enjoining upon them a strict enforcement of the neutrality laws.

A large refinery was built in New York, and thereby the Arbuckles became the competitors of the American Sugar Refining Company'. The latter, was not at all pleased at what it considered an intrusion. At first, the efining company offered to buy .out the Arbucklo plant, so the story goes,; but the latter refused to sell;- Then the refining company concluded to, Hank the movement of the Arbuckles brandling out in the coffee b«s-| and hence this deal. by Want Pension Laws Clmngert, Washington, Dec. 21,-The Senate ,and House pension committees Held a 'joint meeting Friday to consider proposed amendments to the PicWer peu- •slon bill, which passed the House in the last session! and is pending before •the Senate, A new section Is askea ithat dependent parents of all dead vet- <>rans (Instead of those who died from wounds received in the service) be pen* sioned at ?8 a month.
