TRADE   REPORT.
R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of
Trade for last week says:
Anxiety regarding unfavorable possibilities in the future rather than any
actual present misfortune, depressed securities and caused cancellation of
some orders for merchandise by western dealers. Retail distribution of
goods will not be curtailed by the labor
controversy unless it is of long duration, as tho men have saved money during the recent period of full employment at high wages. Similarly in sortie
agricultural districts where there Is
fear that little corn will lie harvested
preceding bumper crops at good prices
have put farmers In such prosperous
condition that their purchases will not
fall off materially, while the greatest
crop of wheat on record has not
brought a return to the low prices of
previous heavy yields.
Beyond advancing prices of steel
sheets and depressing the market for
tin, quotations have not been affected
hy the strike of the Amalgamated association.
Woolen mills are generally more active than at any time this year. The
tone Is distinctly firmer and stocks at
mills and In warehouses decreased. In
cotton goods the situation ls unchanged. Stability of prices seems assured
In the footwear Industry. The firm tone
ls sustained by the steadiness of leather and buyers are not seeking concessions. Factories are running full time
with orders on hand for months ahead.
Calmer counsel prevailed In the grain
markets. Atlantic exports show a large
gain over last year's figures, for the
week amounting to 3,902,775 bushels
against 1,841,861 a year ago.
Failures for the week numbered 198
In the United States against 231 last
year and 32 ln Canada against 27 last
year.

L. K. Armstrong, superintendent of
Washington's mining exhibit at the
Pan-American exposition, has been released, his official head falling at the
end of the present month. Elmer E.
Johnston, the new executive commissioner for the state, who succeeded O.
M. Moore, will in future be in general
charge of the state exhibits personally.
He relieves C. L. Knox, who has been
In charge of the exhibits. The latter
takes the position vacated by Mr. Armstrong. The move is said to be made
in the interests of economy.
Republic.
There are only two mon employed
on the Gold Ledge tunnel.
Good progress Is made dully on
tho shaft of the Trade Dollar.
The Butte & Boston has nothing
now to report in regard to developments.
The last work has been done at the
Republic mill and all employes discharged.
The California contractors who
are sinking a shaft from the 300 foot
level,   are  making  good   progress.
Manager Hedges of the Wauconda
mine has received information that the
machinery for. the Wauconda mill has
reached Midway, B. C,
Progress has been slow lately on
the Princess Maud on account of tho
rock. The bottom of the shaft is almost 400 feet below the tunnel level.
They are still driving the crosscut
on the Chico. which is being driven
at the 400 foot level. It is expected
to reach the ledge before the end of
the month.
The EI Caliph is more than fulfilling the expectations of the company,
as at every foot of development the
ore body grows more solid and maintains a high grade of value-
The shaft on thc Morning Glory,
which Is progressing favorably, is not
following the ledge, as that has
changed direction somewhat, but they
will crosscut to the ledge after sinking about 20 feet further, and determine the condition and value of the
ledge on the 300 foot level.
UH11 imi COLOMBIA.
Four feet of high grade ore has
lieen struck on development on the
May and Jennie near Nelson.
Some of the richest ore over found in
PboenlX camp has been struck by thc
diamond drill In the Idaho, owned by
the Dominion Copper company and located in the heart of Phoenix.
Three seams of soft coal averaging
four feet thick were recently found 60
miles north of Grand Forks. Grand
Forks people are enthusiastic over
prospects of having their own'coal near
at hand.
The working mines at Rossland are
the Iron Mask, I X L, Homestake, New
St. Elmo. Spltzee and Big Four. The
Iron Mask is keeping up its shipments
to the Trail smelter and will continue
to do so regardless of tho closing down
nf the copper furnaces there.
After many delays caused by the mechanics' strike the aerial tramway at
the Hewitt, near Silverton, Is at last
working, and tho mine once more Joins
the list of regular shippers. It Is the
intention of the management to ship a
carload of ore overy other day until the
lower tunnel Is completed and connected with the upper workings. After that,
provitled the ore goes down, the shipments will bo much increased.
The St. Eugene mine at Moyie, In
East Kootenay, has quit breaking ore
and the force, except about 80 „ien on
development, has been laid off. It Is
expected that the force will be reduced
still further to 50 men. The St. Eugene company had a contract with a
Belgian company to ship 9,000 tons of
ore within six months. There is enough
ore, concentrated and ready for shipment at the mine, to fill the Belgian
contract. Tho St. Eugene has paid
$210,000 ln dividends this year, but the
money was largely earned from shipments made last year, when tho price
of lead wan higher.
What Is probably the most Important
strike ever made In Ymlr district is
Just reported from the Ymlr mine,
which has now a proved oro body of
such dimensions and richness as Is surpassed by but few of tho great mines
of tho west. Twenty-six feet of $40 ore
Is now exposeil on the No. 4 level at
the Ymlr and when lt Is borne in mind
that up to the present the large profits
made by this company have been made
from ore averaging less than $9 per ton.
It will be readily recognized that the
preaent strike Is of somewhat sensational character, Indicating a time
when these present profits will be more
than quadrupled.
The week's shipments from Slocan
have not been as numerous as expected,
though In total they have been satisfactory. The Arlington was the only
shipper, sending out 60 tons. Its figures for the year are 1905 tons, the
heaviest In Its hlstorv. Ore Is being
sacked at the Esmeralda for shipment,
nnd the #nmo ls being done at the
Fourth of July. Frank Dick has been
prosecuting work on tho Rose, on the
north fork of Lemon creek, chiefly by
ground sluicing. Tom Lloyd, Al Owens
and Gordon Sutherland, New Denver,
aro developing the Morris groun. on the
north side of Springer. Tho Radellff
brothers have been onenlng up the Little fllnnf grnnn of three claims at tho
head of Lemon creek. L. T. Larson of
Nelson and C. Newhaus of Three Forks
are coowners with them In the property. Things are in an encouraging condition at the Tamarac. Six men are
working at the Phoenix, with the certainty of un early Increase..

The Snow Storm has shipped another carload of ore to the smelter. The
Snow Storm ls a copper property, situated three or four miles above Mullan,
Idaho.
There is a growing impression that
the reported discovery ot rich gravel
in the big bend of the Snake river near
Ontario, Ore., has moro to It than has
been supposed.
It is rumored that W. A. Clark of
Montana during his recent trip to Europe came to St. Petersburg and Moscow incognito, nnd with a certain unnamed count Invested 10,000,000 rubles
In Ural copper mines.
Murray, Idaho, has been experiencing
a genuine stampede because of reported
discoveries of rich rock "up tho North
Fork." That la a very Indefinite expression, but It Is as good as can be
given by anyone who Is not already off
on tho stampede.
A most, peculiar deposit has been discovered near Asotin and Lewiston,
Idaho. Thc product has a woody fiber
and burns with a bright flamo like dry
wood. There is on occasions a sputtering like thero might be oil In the substance, hut there is no book on bitumens that treats of It In any manner.
Drifting has commenced on both
lodges in the Humming .Bird, near
Burke,, where the strike was made In
the second ledge recently. While the
first strike was not so great as first reported, tho ore being largely concon
trating instead of all shipping, yet in
both ledges there has licsn a marked
improvement slnco drifting began.
What Is said to be one of tho richest
strikes ever mado in southern Idaho is
reported from Owyhee county, not moro
than three miles from Silver City. The
property ls owned by another man.
Robert Noble, the Owyhee sheep king
and another man. They have found a
ledge over eight feot wide and the ore
runs over $100 a ton.
According to tho statement ol C. A.

Charles Sweeny has been made de
fendant In another mining suit involv
ing an eighth Interest in the famous
Skookum mining claim at Wardner
Idaho. The suit is similar to the case
tried at San Francisco In which Ken

Wlllkesbarre, Pa.. July 22.—The
glittlnnury Bremen's strike will soon
he at un end. At a meeting of the
executive officers of the United Mine
workers and the officers of the firemen's order, the firemen insisted that
the mine workers define their position definitely once for all. as It was
Impossible to carry on the strike if
the I'nited Mine workers opposed lt.
With that object in view the executive ofllcers of the mine workers
agreed to come to this city and meet
the strikers.    The United Mine work
its were represented by 2t; officers
nl the throe districts. The Stationary
I'iivineii's association was represent"
ed by .1. F. Mullahoy, president of the
association; Thomas Barrett, vice
president; J. A. Oerrity.' secretary;
Hroiliis I.angdon and J. F. Wade.
T. li. Nlcholls. president of District
No 14. opened the discussion. He
said the strike was inoppoitune at
this time. It was detrimental to the
miners, who were under agreement
with the operators to remain at
wmk for one year and If the United
Mine workers remained out It would
menu the sacrifice of the good will
n( the coal operators.
President Kahey of the Ninth district, also spoke against tho strik".
He claimed the strike was Inopportune and that his men wore opposed
to it. President DulTey of the Betroth district, said the firemen In his
district did not go out on strike. This
•'lowed lack of unity and the strike
could not succeed.
The following official statement
ni- issued from firemen's lieadqiiar-
ten tonight:
\ftor the ofllcers of tho three dis
trids of the United Mino Workers
defined the attitude they contemplated assuming toward the firemen
should their strike continue we
thought that It would be. to th" in
ti-rest of all concerned to bring It to
n speedy termination and In consequence thereof we made propositions to them which were adopted,
after which wo Instructed tho firemen
to pursue all honorable moans to
have their positions returned. Although tho strike Is not yet declared
off until after the answers are received from their employers, yet It seems
to lie the prevailing opinion that
should they be favorable tho action
of tho delegates Monday evening
will end the strike. But should any
one now out of employment on the
ground of the strike be discriminated
against the end would bo as far off as
• ver. The firemen aro determined to
stand by those who sacrificed thoir
positions before they would tnkc ouv
plnceR. All of the fln'men who are
still at work shall remain until after
this convention.

Berlin, July 20.—A lively discussion
of the tariff question broke out last
week on the publication of the new
agricultural schedule by the Stutt
gart Boebachtter. which claims to
have authentic information on this
matter on recent tariff conference.
The most striking features of the
schedule are the high duties and the
minimum and maximum charges on
cereals. The figures are the lowest
admlssahlo In commercial treaties,
while the maximum charges are 05
marks per ton on wheat and (10 marks
per ton on rye and oats. The mini
mum charge on wheat is 55 marks
per ton and on rye and on oats 5u
marks. The present duties on rye
and wheat are 86 marks per ton and
on oats 28 marks.
Animals and meats are without
minimnms. The duties cn swine
havo been raised from 50 marks per
ton to 100 marks per ton. Meat, lard
and calves are scheduled for consid
erable increase. Sausages nre raised
from 170 to -150 marks per ton, but
ter and choose from 15 and 20 marks
to 30 marks por ton and eggs from
20 to GO marks. The conservative
and agrarian papers ignore or doubt
the story printed by the Stuttgart
Boebachtter, which other papers
have, however, Investigated on their
own account and substantially con
Arm the Boebachtter schedule.
The Frankfurter Zeltung avere
that the commercial treaties will b(

future, If the government realizes 1U'

The Tageblatt considers the ached

Eczema sets the skin on fire. The acid poisons
the blood are forced out through the pores of the skin,
causing intense redness, burning and itching. So terrible
is tlie itching nt times, especially when tbo body w overheated, that the almost distracted sufferer feels that he
could tear the skin to pieces, and that he must scratch or
go crazv. He knows from experience that tins only
makes matters worse, bnt, made desperate by the terrible
burning and itching, he is for the time being indifferent to after effects. There
are several forms of Eczema, the moist, or weeping kind, that comes in little pustules which discharge a water)', sticky fluid, which dries and peels off in bran-like
scales. So profuse is the discharge at times that large scabs or crusts form, which
are both painful an.l troublesome, and not easily removed. Red, disfiguring bumps
and sores are symptoms of Eczema. The dry form usually attaches the head,
bands and feet; the skin, becoming hard and rough, often cracking open and
bleeding, and attended with much itching. Eczema depends upon a poisoned con-

will be taken by Ilohert F. Green,

This confirmation of thc report, for

almost an official announcement, means
that this Riding will soon lie thrown

will necessitate re-election for Mr
Green. Whether lie would have the
