'New York, June 8— Bradstreet’s to morrow will say: New business at wholesale is of a be tween season's character, but warmer weather has offered a stimulus to retail business in some sections. Chief activity and most attention is. however, still con centrated on the price situation and ef forts to readjust quotations to meet cur lent and marid and supply conditions go forward steaci'y. The only exception to the gen ral down ward trend of prices is that furnished in leading farm products, notably cereals; but here the moving cause is hardly a favorable one. being the result of less satisfactory crop reports, particularly from the Northwest, and it is to be not ed that advices from the Central West, where the winter wheat yield promises to be very short, are also le=s favorable. The Northwest has had some rains. bu> it in claimed not enough to render the sit uation free of danger. Corn crop condi tions remain favorable, as likewise do those of oals. but these grains and hog products have sympathized in the upward movement of wheat, which has .it last broken from its lethargy and is- again attracting speculative attention. Foreign crop advices, it might be added, arc rot flattering. The German rye crop piomise* to l>e very short; the same report com** regarding French wheat, and English i rop are not of the best.

Milter* Mill'll In II iti*iice-il b> Clairvoy ant* aml Ylt'illuttift. Denver (Col.) Letter to Chicago Record. Superstition plays :t large part in gold mining. If the facts were generally known it would ha proved that a majority of the mines in this state are being operated ns much on account of some bint from un seen forces as from the advice of material experts. First and foremost, the Colorado pros pector puts Faith in h's own judgment, but he is not averse to having that judg ment backed by Spiritualistic advice, so. as soon as he stakes out his claim, he frequently seeks a "medium.'' and has a "reading” over a piece of surface ore. On account of the large patronage from the ranks of the prospectors nnd miners Colorado supports an immense number of clairvoyants and seers of every descrip tion, and nil of them claim to be aide to tell what is many feet below the surface of the ground merely by looking at. a piece of ore that is token from the top. Perhaps 4he most notable example of mine poernting largely on the strength of Spiritualistic, advise is found in the Gey ser mine at Silver Cliff, Col. Tills is the ileepest mine in Colorado, being 2.250 feet below the surface. The mine takes it* name from its peculiar geological forma tion. It is being sunk In the center of what was evidently once a volcano cra ter. When the work was started year* iigo the miners founri round, hard stories almost like the “haul heads” which are usced for paving city streets. YY'hen these were cracked open a .small kernel of gold ore was found in the center. This ker nel did not run high in value, being in finitesimal. bu it encouraged the pro-- pec4i rs to keep on. It was figured that these rocks were formed when the last eruption took plume in the volcano crater, li was estimat'd that as the shaft was sunk deeper larger rock* and compara tively larger gold kernels would be found. On this theory the work was carried on Until n depth of several hpndred feet was reached. Then rupjuil gave out. and the mine would probably have been abandon ed bad not a clairvoyant claimed to have received information that if the work was pushed so much deeper fabulous value* would be struck. Armed with this Information, the pro moters went Ease. Boston capitalists were interested, and it is claimed that they were also given first hand the spiritualistic information about the reward awaiting those who persevered in the work With plenty of capital back of the mine, an Im mens* hoist was built, the elevator being unique In that it contains a passenger sec tion for tiie use of the stockholders or cftl dale who may wish to visit the mine. Tiie work was pushed vigorously, though there was no ore in sight, and the determined promoters sunk 1.100 feet without strik ing a sign of encouragement. At last, how ever, ore bodies were opened up. and now it i* reported iliat the mine is on the road to prosperity, though Ito statement has been given out as to whether the prophecies of the spiritualistic adviser have been fully realized. A similar case has cotne to public atten tion near Boulder. Col., Thomas J. Shel ton of “vibration" fame, having locand a mine near that city and having secured capital to work the property through on alleged vision. Shelton is Kentutklan. wiio has been engaged in many different enterprises, including newspaper work and preqehing. While engaged in ihe publish ing business iu Little Rock. Ark., it Is said, he hud a dream which brought him to Colorado. In hi* dream lie saw a spot on the slope of a mountain., near Boulder. The spot was firmly impressed on his memory, and in 1898 he located a claim on a mountain slope that seemed to corre spond in every way with the location pic. tured in his mind. No difficulty was ex perienced in raising capital, and the work of developing the projierty lias progressed steadily, though no ore of any promise has been encountered. In spite of this dis couraging circumsian.t*. the promoter is not worried a particle, as he claim* to have been told, to a fraction oil a foot, at what depth the pay ore would l** struck. This depth has not yet been 'reached, bo it is Claimed. Besides ills Corner Rock mine, as the property is called. Shelton operates a ‘ vi bration” office. Through the influence of his mind he claims to lie able to give peo ple advie • that w ill result in wealth and fame. He has an office force that is kept busy di dating answers to correspondents in ail parts of tiie world, who want these “vibrations.” The letters are said to con tiin the ' vibrations.” Nobcdy can see them, but t tie promoter says they are there and lie ha* convinced so many per sons that he is speaking the truth 'that lie is making a large income at $1 per “vibration.'' Another “dream”* miner, who created quite a s nsa’lon in Colorado a few years ago and who is still convinced that he has untold wealth in sight as the result of advice from mysterious sources, is Joseph Carey of Rockford. 111. Carey nev er had any experience in mining, but a few years ago he claim* he w/ts visited in a dream by the spirit of an Indian squaw. Tiie squaw appeared three time* and each time she told Carey that there was wealth awaiting him In an unpros pec ted and apparently barren field near Golden. Col, Carey, after the third dream, lost no lime in coming to Colorado. He went directly t# Golden and then followed up what is known as Indian gulch, west of tiie town. After proceeding a short dis tance up the gulch he located his claim, in the exact snot which was pointed out by the squaw. He began to sink a shaft, but sot n had to hi*p*m and work on account if lack of capital for development. Trou b'e also arore over tiie miestion of Ids right to the prop rty. Tills was finally smoothed over and Carey lias worked dog gedly on his claim. In spite of the sneers of okj miners who my that gold will never be found so far down in the foot hills He says he ha* but a little way to proceed, when, according to the dream ptephtf, lie will oi>on up an Immense vein of gold-bearing oie. *cnt Koltl for New York, June B.—A cotton exchange memlethlp certificate was eold to-dav at $3,000.

He Estimates It at f200.m0,0(K. <torieM Yliont Him. From the Philadelphia Press. Pittsburg. June 4.—Andrew Carnegie’* statement made a few da> s ago in Lon don that he could clean up $200,000,000 by dDposirg of all hi* iCt rests, chiefly those of the Carnegie Company, has revived discussion in Pittsburg concernng Mr. ('ar. egie s ♦normous single fortune. It is interesting to note what difference it would have made in the Carnegie pile had H. C. Frick and ill* associates ac cepted the settlement which Mr. Carne gie wanted *o make when Mr. Frick wilh drw from active business. According to the figures which were g ven by Mr. Frick, hi* wealthier part ner would to-day be richer by tiie sum of about $45 OOtU.OO. Mr. Carmgle would now I be worth a quarter of a billion of dol- j lat. had Mr. Flick acquiesced in the pro posed s ttiement Hut Mr. Frick did not acqui see and in consequence that gentle man recGvfd about $*3.000.000 in addition lo what Mr. cainegi* wanted to give. It in also known tha the basis of settle ment was very satisfactory i-Oy'hos- part ners who oil not join Mr. I-rick in hi* fight. They became large beneficiaries by tne term* cf the final s -itlenient and the total addition to their holdings by the rtorganization of the company amounts to a sum in the nelg.libut hood of '550,000.- OCO. ThD amount would have gone- into •h already well filled wallet of the laird ot Pklbo Castle, had Mr. Frick not b. ought his famous suit or bad Mr. Car negie fought and won it.

The s at m nt of Mr. Carnegie in Lon d m tstimatlrg his fortune at $2tX).000.t0.. car* and some surprise in Pittsburg whe/e it has befit supposed that Mr Carnegie had a larger private fortune, than this would indicate. A gentleman conversant with Mr. Carnegie's affairs states that he received in the final settlement of the Flick suits, bonds of the new Carnegie company to the amount of about sS7.t*M>.- •HMI and stoi k to (he am ui't of about s's.- 000,000. This makes the entire Carnegie interest in tiie company $17O.00O.;:00. in ad dition to this Mr Carnegie is credited with holding investment securities of va rious sorts and cash to ihe amount of about $30,(00,UK), 1.1• * latter <• nstitutlng a souA of private fortune. t Mr. Carnegie’s statement is taken to mean among those who know him. that he now admits the validity of H. C. Frick's claim as lo the value of the Car negie interests. One promin nt Pittsburger. upon read ing the statement, attributed to Mr Car negie, said: “I don't think that a man with all that wealth should covet Na both's vineyaid especially after Naboth had helped him to get it.” This was in reference to H. C. Fri< k. whose manage ment of the Carnegie property for mauy years is considered by Pittsburg manu facturers as the gnat factor iti placing that concern on Its present footing. < arii4'ui4'*N First Wealth. Owing to his ass'elation wilh tiie Penn sylvania Rai rea l, Mr. Cam gh* made hi* first mcney out of the American sleeping tar invented by Josiah Woodruff.

This was the first cash made by Andrew Catnrgb* in •* <* . lal enter pGse of any eons qu* n e it gave him an opportunity to go into oil when the first big wells came in throughout Ve nango county. In the days of Oil Creek and Plthole. He was a stockholder in the' Columbia Oil Company, a concern which earned $1.(100,000 in Its first year. Out of that ceil _\l .

He start ci the Keystone Atridg* Works through the aid of YY'. L. Pipt-r and Mr. Schitfier. who were employed on the Western di vision of the Pennsylvan a Railroad dur ing Mr. Carnegie's connection with the road.

Jonei without cracking a smile. Mr. Carnegie’s annual expense accoun. is in itself a tort tine. I'p to five years ugo. when he married, it is estimated that he spmt about $100.00) per year to llv*. Kiiltcs of apartment* in London and New York were constantly kept iu readiness for him. Blnce his marriage it is esti mated that Mr. Carnegie’s annual living, expenses amount to about a half a mil lion dollars. The maintenance of Bkibo Chs h in Scotland alone costs a prince ly income. Among his remaining annua) expenditures is a private pension list which contains the names of poor friends. Among th*m are iliose who helped young “Andy” Carnegi* without dreaming that lie would one day fce able to help them. On this list for many yiars was the name of a t old man who had been kind to young “Andy” when he was a tele graph mess tiger. The o il man was very poor when discovered by the steel man ufacturer. and the lafer settled the sum ' of $1,500 ier year on him and upon his death it was paid to the widow. < arii4'gle'ft Xtimerouai Fai.
