During the past fiscal year the market was largely influenced by the Tariff bill, which although somewhat anticipated, yet was followed by advancing prices and large sales until near the close of 1897. after which markets were more quiet, but fairly firm and steady, until the threatened war with Spain checked trade so that business became very dull and uncertain, with prices largely nominal, although at the close there was more demand and a rather firmer feeling.
