CONDITION OF TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 2 April 1890
CONDITION OF TRADE. The Record of the Past Quarter Shown Statistically. The Lumbar Trade — Cera Generally Buoyant—Money Easier— Potatoes Coming in HsavJly From tha East. The weather continues of an April character. We have a few days of sunshine, then a day or two of rain. This is fine. It is good for the growing crops and harms few individuals.

If the weather were made to our order it could not be better. Perhaps if we ordered it, it would turn out tho worst possible for the earth. Trade continues very fair. On rainy days it is quiet; when the sun comes out it is lively. Collections are good, and the jobbers as a rule are busy. The tendency of money Is to rule easier. A large amount was released yesterday in dividends. One of the city banks which lately raised its rate of interest from 6 per cent to 7 per cent has ...
