THEIR LAST PRACTICE ROW. Stniigburj Gnudaur Ready for the Championship Match. London, Sept. Stansbury, the Australian oarsman, and Jake Gaudaur, the Canadian sculler, were out on the Thames Friday morning for their last practice prior to their rowing contest from Putney to Mortlakc, which will take place next Monday. A heavy rain was falling. Both men looked fit and there is every prospect of a good race. Stansbury weighs 1P2 nnd Gnudaur 175. Both row in same style. Neither has any body swing-, both doing their work with their nrms. Gnudaur has a much easier action than Stansbury, nnd his long arms give him a much greater reach.

Wholesale Merchants Express More Confidence for the Future. Autumn Business Promises Larger Sales of Iron in Chicago and Pittsburg. New York, Sept. G. Dun's re- view of trade says: There is a distinct increase of confidence, due largely to the continuing and heavy imports of gold which have put an end to the money anxiety; also to political events, which are closely watched. While it has not yet started more mills and fac- tories than are closing for want of work, it crops out in in heavy specula- tive purchases of pig iron and other materials by experienced men who be- lieve the revival of business is not far ofE, and for the first time in nearly two months, a slight upward turn appears in prices of manufactured products. Wheat had suddenly risen a week ago, but reacted, with better crop news, until Thursday, when another advance came of cent, making the net decline for the week Western receipts continued larg-e; the increase since July 1 is about bushels, or 13 per cent. Atlantic exports were also Urge, making a pain of 69 per cent. Corn has reached at Chicago the low- est point ever touched, 20c in 1S61, and has again broken all records here, de- clining to at which it closed. After many weeks of decline, so that the average price of iron and its pro- ducts was the lowest, since eariy last year, prices started up a shade. Heavy speculative purchases of bessenier at the west and for southern iron here so strengthened the market that besse- tner at Pittsburg- commands and gray forge 89.50. Various associations have not reduced prices, believing it would not stimulate the. demand at present, which is extremely narrow and shows no improvement. Tin is weaker at for Septem- ber. Bids at S10 37 are solicited for lake copper, while lead is a. shade firmer. No gain yet appears in the demand or prices for wool, but marked specu- lative buying shows a belief that prices will improve. Sales for the week were pounds, of which 500.000 pounds were foreign Failures for the week were 334 in the United States, against last year. IVbat Bradfttrceu Bradstreets: There is, a somewhat better feeling among wholesale mer- chants for the prospects of autumn trade in seasonable goods. This ex- tends to some industrial lines, notably iron and steel. Chicago sales of iron for tbe week were larger than for all of August, and Pittsburg sales were larger. Prices were better on the out- look of harmony among steel makers. There are more as the movement in prices lies in ad- vances of quotations for stronger statistical position and a free export movement, the higher 6f iron and steel at Pittsburg and Chica- go, with a gain in the demand -a further appreciation in the quotations I of cotton on renewed reports of damage to the crop. jl On the other hand, there has been no general increase in industrial pro- duction, the output, as a whole, being smaller than previously; during the year. Further damage to the Texas cotton crop is reported. At Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati. Kansas City, Omaha, Milwaukee. Du- luth and Minneapolis there is no change from the dullness and conserv- atism which has marked preceding weeks. The exports of wheat (flour included as wheat) from both coasts of the United States and from Montreal this week amounted to bushels; last week; in the week a year-ago. Bank Statement. New York, Sept. statement compiled by Bradstreets shows the total bank clearings in the principal cilits of the United States during the past week to be a de- crease of 10.0 per cent, compared with the corresponding week of last vear.

Chicago, Sept. in an inter- view today said: The people whom I have met, who have mingled with the.audiences of democratic have voluntarily come for- ward to assure me the sentiment was veer- ing- around toward the democratic plat- form.
