General trade throughout the country a
reported by wire to Bradsl reeVs, has beh
quite as Inactive as is customary during the
week In which the Fourth of July holiday
occurs. Semi-annual stock-takings, settle
ments, and- a persistent : and wide-spread
rainstorm tended to further check trade.
In Texas and Georgia rains are said to have
done some damage to tho crops. Contradic
tory reports come from the Spring wheat
region, but no evtdeuoj has arrived yet of
serious disaster to that crop. The business
outlook for the remaining half year is re
garded as brighter, with higher prices and
more active demand for iron, steel) wool and
Bear pressure and lower prices hive ruled

differences at the West, fears of a reorgani
zation of Atchison and the too rapid advance
of trust securities, seem to be the basis for
this action which is accompanied by heavy
bear manipulation, Bonds are strong and
steady witn a good reinvestment demand.

Hogs and cattle at the West are selling

Raw sugar has been In less active request,
but is just as confidently held at o advance

high range of last week." Coffee reacted
somewhat after the heavy decline of last

the xear, against 43d strikes and ; 172,433
strikers in the first half of 1888 and 554
strikes and 223,023, strikers in 1887. The
failures among? commercial and industrial
traders in the United States since January 1
numbered 5,918, or 12 per cent, more than in
the first half of 1883. With a dozen failures
eliminated, this report contains only favor
able features, as the recent growth of gen
eral business has. not been fully reflected in
the higher commercial death rate. iJank
clearings at thirty-seven cities for six months

HAND PRESSES ADOPTED.
Steam Plate Presses tn the Bureau of
Secretary Windom has decided that the
recent act of Congress concerning steam
plate printing presses for the Bureau of En
graving and Printing is intended to be pro
hibitory of the use of all steam presses.
Under this ruling the Milligan presses now
used by the bureau will have to be dispensed
with. There are eighteen Milligan and one
Hemer Lee steam presses in use there.
Tbe Secretary's decision is a clear victory
for the labor unions, who have been fighting
for the introduction of hand presses. Tbey
were successful is their efforts in this direc
tion when the act of Congress was passed,
but the language of the bill was such that a
question arose as to whether it was strictly
prohibitory and tbe matter was referred to
Secretary Windom for decision. The Secre
tary has refcsxl to sign any contract with
the Milligan Company.
The work of removing tbe steam presses
will begin at once; they, will all be put out
of tbe building by the end of the week. In
place of them Captain. Meredith will put at
once into , operation twenty-eight band
presses now iu stock. The chief says that
by working an hour longer every day, the
bureau will soon catch up with current bus
iness, which has fallen behind because of a
week's stoppage while negotiations nere In
progress. He says the work will be better
done, too, ana toe expenses oi iuo iurou
not UnuJv increased tnereuy.
