TAB UPPER DEB MOINESi AL60KA, IOWA WEDNESDAY JULYjt I 189?, fNSUHANcfc WAff. **n fc*t** FroftilMd Among Old-tJn* <Cottip»nle». Cfcs MolSfcd, July 18.— -totva is threatened with A fire insurance war. the fight has already been beffiitt in Illinois, WsconsliV Indiana and ;Min- hesota. and there seems ho hope Miotv of keeping it out of Iowa and other wester ft states. Recently tt.e governing committee of the Western Union, ah organization of strong companies in Chicago, announced a 20 nef cent reduction on rales aftectinp dwellings, churches, school buildings and coxirt houses, Scarcely had the Western Union sounded the opening note of the ralnpaign, when ,R. tt. tfarrigue. of Chicago, of Chicago, agent for the Merchants' Insurance company, of tfew&rk, announced that his company would meet the reduction. Mr. Gar'- rigtle finally went the Western Union .ine better by offering to allow agents 2i> per cent on all policies written in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota. Indiana »nd Iowa. This was a much deeper cut than the one made by the Western UrfSon, as it reduced the commission of its agents to 10 per cent. The Northwestern National company of Milwaukee ordered a cut of from 30 to 50 per cent on all preferred risks. Thus far the conflict has not fairly reached Iowa, though it is believed it cannot be prevented. Des Moines has not yet been affected, but there are signs of the coming trouble. A fight among the old-line companies here would mean a saving to policy holders of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and & general cutting of rates on risks of every description.

This is due to a reaction in iron and steel, prices of which are back to lowest points on record, a dragging demand for boots and shoes, and a threatened famine of bituminous coal. Manufacturers o£ cotton goods and their agents report slow trade, owing to higher cotton and low prices for goods. This has shut down a number of cotton mills in Massachusetts and in Rhode Island. A fairly steady business is reported by eastern manufacturers of shoes, but trade at Philadelphia is dull, merchants hesitating to place orders. Western wholesale dealers in clothing report distribution unsatisfactory. Western bar iron mills are already shut down, and if the coal strike lasts another week, thousands, of factory wheels will stop turning. The heavy loss of sheep in Australia, due to drought, and speculation in wool here on tariff prospects, have made wool prices higher, with large sales. 'The world's available supply of vheat is probably the.smallest at a like icriod in many years. Europe is expected to have to import 100,000,000 more bushels than last year, and nei- her India, Australia nor Hie Argentine s expected to be able to supply its isual share. The general tendency o£ he price movement this week is to •everse the growing strength of quotations in the preceding fortnight. Ex)orts of wheat (flour included as wheat) from both coasts of the United States and from Montreal this week show the first sharp decline since last April, amounting to only 1,522,092 bushels, against 2,502,000 bushels last week, 2,963,000 bushels in the second week oi July last year, 1,652,000 bushels in the o week of 1895, 1,873,000 bushels in 1894, and as compared with 5,077,000 bushels in the corresponding week in 1893. "Failures for the week have been 263 in the United States, against 209 last year, and 27 in Canada, against 39 last year."
