Similar report front every Section or the great Mississippi Basin. Chicago special the Early Spring Trade in All branches of the wholesale business of Chicago was almost without a parallel in its history. The con sumption of goods was simply enormous. This was in a Groat measure attributed to the change to be made in Railroad freight rates by the operation of the interstate Commerce Law which went into effect Early in april. Now that Bat time Lias passed and dealers throughout the country Are be i using to no Dorssaud the present Cost of Tonus a Talion the to Meuso demands for goods throughout the month of March turns oat not to have been so spasmodic As it was then supposed to be but a Roux due revival of by Siuea through out the West Anil Northwest is Thore Liss been during the list three weeks and is now greater activity at Node the wholesale firms of this City thu is usual St this season of Tho year. The new Law acted As a Check Aud nothing More. All through the country West of Chicago even to Tho peo fio coast the new Law is a Benefit to the Garden City As it enables ship cars to Send goods to Points they could not cover Bosforo As they were controlled by the jobbers in the Interior owns. Thus Chicago is becoming Toro and More the base of supplies for the whole West and Northwest. There was of course a marked falling off in the dry goods Trade daring last Cucuth As computed with March which was a phenomenal one but april More than held its Awn As against the same time last year Aud the ont look for a late Spring and summer demand is a very sat is factory one. A Good volume of business was transacted All through the month by the millinery Bouse. There has never been to satisfactory a Spring season and it is closing earlier than usual. A Good order Trade is anticipated until the hot weather sets in. So for there is no fault whatever to be fount with Tho situation. The condition of the wholesale grocery Trade is very Satia factory and it has been daily improving since april 10, there seems to be a Boom through the country so far As Trade is concerned and the heavy volume of Railroad work now in course of cd str motion is in a great measure Nieou triole for it. The opening of Lake navigation has also Given it an impetus. And with collections Good in All branches of Trade a feeling of satisfaction exists that has not been known for years. Business generally is Bane conducted on a co Servatt re basis and therein lies its strength. Dealers Are buying in smaller quantities and oftener and Bence they find it easier top amp a for their goods. Telegraphic reports to the Chicago Tribune from lending Trade centers in Tjie West Northwest and Southwest Are of Oue Tenor. They All speak of an revival of a Smees. A dispatch from Milwaukee says a a stroll among Milwaukee merchants Anil manufacturers will show Tho prevalence of Contentment mingled with a due allowance of hopefulness regarding Ibe present a condition of the Seenon s prospects for Radii less in the various branches. Comparative i., Little complaint a undo regarding the interstate Commerce Law so far As the of freights is concerned and it a Preun to Cut Little or no figure in affecting Thili so Paul reports As follows a Spring Trade has generally opened no earlier than lost year Ower g to the favourable season and the Volgare of business in All departments is reported to be larger than last year. The elect of the interstate Law which it was frs red would prove a serious blow to Northwestern Trade has not been As disastrous As Omaha a the merchants of this City report a Large increase in their bassinets Over univ former year. Borne of them say it will run from 30 to 50 per cent higher especially in the grocery Trade. Orders five not Only grown in numbers but Are double and even triple in size. This is duo they nay to Tho cute slate Commerce Law which has raised rates so thut country store keeper who heretofore made their big Purchase in Chicago now gel everything from Omaha. While tales Are Good collection Are also Mut h better than usual for it time of Denver a there is a striking unanimity among the business men of Denver in re. Gard to their present Trade and this feeling extends to an agreement among them that they do not look for its Conli Nance beyond a few weeks or months at the outside. In comparison with last year they estimate the increase variously from 30 to 50 per cell the latter in special lines. Nearly every jobber is loud in condemning the present Railroad tariffs us s Railroad standpoint to suit the provisions of the interstate Commerce Kansas City a a in less the present indications prove misleading the year 1�b7 will by marked by an unprecedented development of the commercial interests of in sat City. The Spring Trade is satisfactory and even More thin satisfactory As the surprising Boom in business fairly takes away la it breath of the most conservative business men. Jobber in dry goods Are to a certain extent feeling the effects of Tho interstate Commerce Bill so far As it relates to Long unc abort hauls. They get their Gooda in fairly Good time but Are compelled to pay More freight than formerly. The increase however is not suffix int to injure the jobbing business of the St. Louis a Tho volume of St. Louis Spring business averages fully an increase of thirty per cent Over the three corresponding Mouths of lost year. Merchants Are almost unanimous in their indoors enyant of thu interstate Commerce now Orleans a nearly All lines of Trade Beau More satisfactory this Spring ban for several seasons past. To interstate Commerce Law Las not unfavourably Affe Teci Louisville a Spring Trade in Louisville opened out with a steady fooling and firm demand for almost All classes of goods except in a few lines of specialities there has Boon no complaint on account of the interstate Commerce Cleveland a Cleveland s Trado has some bad of Sturee about it but on the whole there is very Little draw Bank to Tho Strong fooling that has existed for several months past. The dry goods houses report business As better by almost one fifth thit Spring than last Aiad tha Trade of inst year was the Best Over known. Thoy Geu orally Liko the Nev Law As calculated to leave them what they term the local Trade and prevent Tho to petition of new York and cd Imago he uses. Collections Are very Cincinnati a interviews with Proui Cuenl merchants ii various branches of business show conflicting statements in regard 0 Tho cuu Dilke of Spring Trade in several lines.
