Weaker Past aad it WU1 Conttnae to YORK, March tele- trams to Bradstreets report no general improvement in the distribution of mer- chandise. Cold weather and snow hare stimulated sales of some winter goods, but checked the movement in spring staples. Standard cotton goods have been fairly active, and boots and shoes and hardware have been in good re- quest. Other lines are dull. Ingrain earpet makers complain of over-produc- tion and will restrict the output. An- thracite coal stocks between mines, and tidewater are very large. There is a heavy southern demand for bacon, and cattle and hogs are both in better de- mand at the West, the former being 1S@ 20c higher. Low prices for grain at in- terior points and farmers' indebtedness are responsible for slow collections. Iron and steel markets are weaker than for some time past. This refers to pig and bar iron, billets, blooms and slabs. Prices for merchant steel and hardware are generally firm. Bessemer pig is weak and S3 below highest prices touched within a year. There is a wide- spread impression among consumers that iron and steel will continue to decline. Dry goods with jobbers are fairly active at Boston and New York. Weather con- ditions have not been altogether favor- able. Southern buyers are most nu- merous, and the Western retail demand is not as active as anticipated. Prices are irregular. Raw wool is dull, with prices in buyers' favor on a hand-to- mouth manufacturing demand. Business failures reported to Brad- street's number 215 in the United States this week, against 190 last week and 221 the same week last year. Canada had 48 this week, against 34 last week.
