The question of whether the action of the Wisconsin Central was legal had been submitted to the attorneys of the vari-ous roads, t.ut it was found yesterday that about half of the attorneys found that the Wisconsin Central acted In strict
rmity with th recent ruling of the interstate commerce commission, while the others took the position that the ac- tion was illegal.
Hopes bad been entertained that the tral might be prevailed
upon to cancel its new tariff, but th>s company failed to put in an appearance .-it the meeting, which was accepted as proof that it had determined to stand by it- action. The roads whose attorneys liH'! rul< •! that cartage or switching

TRADE IS RETARDED BY THE HUMID
WEATHER This Merely Accentuates the
Quiet Common to the Sea- son — Manufactured Pro- ducts Going Abroad in Large Quantities —Unpre- cedented Iron Production.
NEW YORK, April 17.—Bradstreet'3 tomorrow will say: Wet weather haa
retarded retail trade and accentuated the quiet usual at this season. A bene- ficial factor effect of the Eastern rush, however, is an> improvement in collec- tions, despite bad roads and weather, and activity in farming work. Export
trade is still expanding 1, cotton and, corn being leaders, and manufactured products are also going abroad in large volume. Last year"s record has al- ready been surpassed. With improved transportation and better supplies of coke, iron production is surpassing all records. This has resulted in some further weakness in pig-, this, by the way. discouraging imports of foreign materials.
On the other hand, finished products are in unprecedented demand, and for- eign steel is arriving in Increased vol- ume to eke domestic needs. Railway earnings are the best ever recorded for this season, g/bss receipts for- March exceeding those of a year ago by about 14 per cent. 1
Dry Goods and Sugar. The high price of < otton and the nu-
merous labor troubles unsettled the de- mand for manufacti red goods. Men's wear woolen goods t >r fall delivery are reported rather ba 'kward, and raw wool has steadied slightly. The theory advanced last week that the sugar trade was grounding; at the bottom ha%. received support-in ihe increased price of raw and refined} sugar this week. Coffee has weakened in the absence of support from the direction noted last week, that of destroying low grade Brazilian supplies, and new record low prices have been torched by "futures."
Pig iron of all kinds moved lower this week. Southern foundry pig is re- ported cut below redent price revisions at the East. Bessemer pig Iron is slightly easier. Premiums on quick de- liveries are disappearing and imports of foreign iron are finding their field restricted. A feature at present in the more finished forms is the large de- mand for light rails for electrical, and
I street railways. Mills rolllng^staridard' sections are crowded with orders, (tee* billets are active, and demand, for structural material is reported -tr passing previous records. §trerfgl£i?at old materials Is significant 18l the softening In pig iron>*i«oppM~»i^ slightly higher on the week^n^ oLUaj^, metals are steady.

NOTES OF THBICOAL TRADE.
Lake Shipments olf Bituminous Being Held Up.
CHICAGO, April |7.—The Black Dia- mond reviewing the' Western coal mar- ket says: Unusual features continue to obtain In the \sfestern anthracite trade. This week practically all of the large companies represented In West- ern territory discontinued taking or- ders for delivery during the current month. It is probaW? a small amount of business yet may. be accepted In cases here and there,' but large buyjers who have held off'expecting to place their orders about the 20th to 25th of April and who believed they would be able to secure the coal thus ordered on the April circular basis will meet with a disappointment.
The decision of the companies to re- fuse to take further business is largely due to a continuance of the strike among the marine firemen and ollera on the great lakes. While some few boats have left Buffalo and Erie with non-union crews, the larger portion of the lake fleet is still tied up with no assurance as to when it will go- Into commission. Vessel owners seem to be slowly breaking the strike, but at the present rate of process It will be some time before they can win a complete victory.
<'hicagx> received Its first boatload of coal on Wednesday, the loth, when the Gladstone, consigmed to the Lehlgh Valley Coal company, arrived with 2,700 tons of stove coal. The opening of the coal carrying season this year is one day later than last year, although if lt had not been for the strike lt would probably have opened ten days earlier. A year ago the P. D. Armour was the first vessel to reach Chicago with a cargo of 2,700 tons of coal. This cargo was also consigned to the Lehigh Val- ley foal company.
In the soft coal traie the market on spot coal at Chicago is a trifle easier than a week ago, and large shipping in- terests say they expert a dull and quiet market until well into the summer. The situation as to Eastern bituminous coals in Western markets is being in- fluenced to a more *riess extent by the hike transportation situation. At Ohio and Pennsylvania loading ports there is commencing to be:an accumulation of coal cars which cannot be unloaded owing to the congested condition of the docks. Unless some relief is furnished soon as to the vessel situation it will be necessary to div«t this coal into the all-rail trade or tot tide-water. Some Interests are already, considering this plan and way? of -rmtking it effective until such time as lake shipments are fairly normal.
Anyreduction in iha .iiiantity of coal moving to the docks will be felt next winter, although it may be only a small tonnage in the aggregate. Dock inter- ests have demanded all along all the toßnage that could be moved to them. They entered the spring months with- out a pound of coal on hand as against a small surplus in past years and their necessities the coming summer and winter are therefore quite urgent, espe- cially as to obtaining as full a supply as possible.
Among Eastern bituminous coals theonly new prices announced during the week pertain to ocean smokeless, which Is sold to a considerable extent in
Western markets. These prices are on the same basis as Pocahontas, $1..85"at the mine for run of mine and $2.30 at the mine for screened lump. This coal Is sold extensively throughout the Northwestern states and the new prices are regarded as quite conservative con- sidering the advance in freight rates and cost of mining.
In spot Illinois coals the market pre- sents little change. Illinois and Indiana lump rule at around $2.25 on the spot, with occasionally inside prices named on coal that is drawing car charges or demurrage. Prices on mine run range from $1.85 to $2 per ton, f. o. b., Chi- cago, and on screenings the market is showing a somewhat wider range, va- rying from $1.40 to $1.50 on Illinois to $1.60 to $1.70 on Indiana, according to quality and the road over which they are shipped.
Contracts in all branches of the Western bituminous trade continue to drag, and it is not expected there will be much activity here before the Ist of the month. Operators continue very firm in their views, while buyers are withholding their contracts until the spot situation becomes somewhat firm- er. There is every evidence that fewer contracts will be made this year than ever before in the history of the coal trade, and operators are content that this should be so. Outside of some de- sirable railroad contracts, which will absorb the large tonnage of the most important operations, there is no feel- ing of apprehension as to ability to dis- pose of all the coal that can be brought out during the season.
Leading markets, including Cleve- land, Cincinnati. Detroit, Milwaukee and the Twin Cities arc reported as on a quiet basis, with prices fairly well maintained on the new basis.
