Leading Features of Markets at the
East Liberty Yards.
Light Weight Hogs in Better Demand and
Higher Priced.
Office of The Pittsbuik; Dispatch, )
Vedesdai January 2, 1889.
The receipts of cattle Monday were TO
loads, against 65 the previous Monday. The
average number of receipts throucu Novem
ber were about 150 cars. Through Decem
ber the local receipts of cattle at the Liber
ty yards were not more than one-half those
of November. This decline is an index to
the large consumption of poultry, name and
oysters, which is always a cart of the Christmas
festivities. Another reason for the decline is
the absence of Eastern buyers, who in the fall
months laid in their stockers and feeders for
this season. The stock-raisers of the Eastern
counties manage to lay in their stock
before December. With the falling off
of demand from this source, and .argc poultry
and came consumption coming In at the same
time, the local cattle demand has suffered a
declire, which very materially affects the
trade. . , ,
The Quality ot cattle received this week has
been better than tfce a erase for the past
mouth or two. Therchas been nothing strictly
prime in the receipts, and, in lact, notumg
quite np to some received last week. On the
other there were scarcely any of the low grade
Said a leading stockman: "Our supplies this
week have been in the main good butcher and
lair shipping cattle. Very few common, thin
butcher stuff were on the market, uch as w e
had an over-supply of through the falL"
Prices of common to good butcher stock rule
strong, 5310c higher than last week. Lower
frades rule 6trong. with no advance in price,
air shipping cattle are hard to sell. The ship
ping Interest setins to be in a condition of sus
pended animation. The best price that could
be traced for carload lots was $1 85.
Notwithstanding light receipt, some four or
Ave loads wrre lelt over from Monday, and
were shipped East to-day in first hands. Those
left over were what are termed bj the trade,
heavy shipping cattle. Buyers of tbi6 class of
stock appear to be in the holiday business this
week, and hence the slowness of markets.
Monday's supply of sheep and lambs con
sisted of about 12 cars, the same number as the
previous Monday. The larger portion of thoe
received were common and low grade stock.
The few good bunches that appeared found
ready sale at a shade better prices than a week
ago. The supply of good, juicy mutton and
lamb his not for some weeks been up to de
mand. Of the common, tough and juicclcss
Huff, there has been all along a supply in excess
of demand, and the situation in favorof buj era.
Tms has been the situation very decidedly this
week. Low grade sheep can hardly bring any
profit to shippers, at prices which are ruling for
this class.
At Chicago receipts of hogs to-day were 15,
C00 head, and prices ruled about the same there
to-day as Monday. At East Libertv receipts
were very light, and an advance of 15c to 20c
nverMondaj's prices is reported by dealers.
The range of the market at East Liberty to
day is $5 15 to $5 70. The receipts on Monday
were above 50 carloads, almost double the re
ceipts of the previous Monday. The demand
for good licit-weight hogs better than for
heavy w. eights, which reverses the situation of
a couple of we ks ago. Through November
and early December heavy hogs were in de
mand for lard supplies. It would seem that
lard stock is well secured, and of late the rush
is for light bogs.
E. JlcCnll & Co.'s Review.
The supply of fettle has been only fair, bnt
fully equal to the demand. The market ruled
slow on all grades, with common to medium
strong at last week's prices: very little demand
for good and selling very slowly at a shade
lower prices. We quote the following as rul
ing price: Prime. SX to 1.000 Us, Si 501 SO:
good, 1,200 to 1.400 Sis, S3 Sj4 20: good, LWJO to
1.200 lbs, SS 404 00; rough lat, 1,100 tn 1,301) Jk,
Jo 403 65: stockers and feeders, 52 003 00;
fat cows, bulls and heifers. 52 253 25; lresh
cows and springers, 2040 per head.
The receipts of hogs on Monday were about
equal to the demand, and the market ruled ac
tive. Yesterday and to-day the supply has been
very light and the market somewhat excited.
We dou't look for present prices to continue.
Sale" to-day were as follows: Fbiladelphias,
S5 455 50; best light Yorkers, $5 C0g5 65; com
mon to fair heavy Yorkers, 55 405 50; roughs,
54 25g5 00.
The receipts of sheep this week have been
light, and market firm at an advance of 1520c
per cwt on all grades. We quote as follows:
Prime Ohio and Indiana wethers, weighing here
110 to 120 pounds. S4 SC4 SO; good wethers, SO

Chicago. There was a surprise in store for
operators in w. heat in this market, and it came
in the way of a sharp decline, instead of the ad
vance they had calculated upon. The opening
was strong and K?c higher than closing fig
ures ot Monday, influenced, possibly, by the
light deliveries on January contracts, and a
decrease of 1,520.000 bushels in the quantity on
passage, but soon after the opening the specu
lative offerings became quite heavy and a
steady shrinkage in prices followed, which con
tinued Until a decline of 2c was established,
when the market temporarily rallied 3c again
became weak, declining to the inside range
the day, and closed about 2c lower than Mon
day. The receipts were light and export clear
ances again small. In fact, there was nothing
new from outside points to cause any special
change in the market, and the decline of to-day
was credited principally to the selling of a
prominent local trader. This party, for several
days past bad been a large buyer, and therefore
a support to the market, and his adverse action
to-day naturally had a doubly depressing ef
fect. At the decline, or inside prices, there
was good buying, sufficient to prevent further
decline. This buying wan supposed to be
mainly against rales made early in the day.
Cera ruled rather quiet most of the session,
though at times exhibited moderate activity.
The feeling, considering the section, in which
it ws relatively steady, and after the easiness
displayed aronnd the opening the market ruled
comparatively firm. Initial trades were ?
higher than Monday's closing prices, afler
which the market sold oS JfgKc, became
steady and closed J4jtc lower than Monday.
There was considerable changing ot January
into the more deferred months, chiefly May.
Oats were liirlv active, but weaker and
lower. Offerincs, during the greater part of
the sessiou were liberal, especially from
"longs." fiavers appeared rather indifferent
about takinghold. as other grains were weaker
and lower, hence the market had little support
and prices declined ie, and May delivery
itffttC and the market closed easy at inside
prices. Speculative trading was quite active
in mess pork and prices ruledirregular. Offer
ings were liberal, especially for Way delivery.
Early prices were advanced 5c, but the market
soon weakened and prices gradually declined
25330c. Later the market ruled steadier and
puces advanced 5JjTc and closed steady.
Qjiite an active business was reported In laid
but the business was weak. Prices decllned20
25c on the whole range, but rallied 5"c and
closed rather steady.
Considerable interest was manifested in short
ribs ard trading was quite active. Prices w ere
weak early i the day and declined 1520c, but
rallied 2Js5c later and the market closed

Disconrnpnc Opening of the Now Year in
the Ronton Marker.
Bostox, January 2. Atchison was the one
feature of the Boston stock market to-day, he
iug very active and weak. It was sold down by
traders who started in for a turn on the bear
side, and received aid from the room,
from long stock and from stop orders.
Opening at 3i it touched 55 "and recovered to
56. but weakened again in the last quarter
hour and closed at 5454, the low est point of the
day. and making the net result of the day's
trading a decline of 3 points. The point was
given out that November earnings would
show a decrease in net as compared
with 18S7 of 5300,000, and also that
no dividend would be paid in February.
The earnings disappointed extreme bearish
anticipations, showing the comparative de
crease has been 200,006. The day as a whole
has proved a sorry one for the commencement
of the new year.

The Kew. Year Promises to Breat
the Best Business Record.
Eeal .Estate Moving Quite Briskly, With
Prices Pointing kjward.
The new year started off well in financial
circles. There was no special movement,
but business was quite brisk. Payment of
dividends will begin in a day or two. This
will put a large volume of money in circu
lation. Nearly all the banks yesterday re
ported depositing in excess of withdrawals.
At most of them counter business was lively.
The clearing house statement shows a large
volume of transactions, very little of which was
of a speculative nature.
The exchanges were 52,864,121 20 and the bal
ances $476,245 S6. Eastern exchange ruled abont
even with currency. Rates for borrowing were
66 per cent. In a few cases gilt-edged paper
was accepted at 4J Bankers generally express
confidence that the present year will break the
record for the volumo of transactions. The
beginning points to this result.
At New York money on call was tight, rang
ing' from C to 8 per cent, last loan 8, closed of
fered at 2. Prime mercantile paper, 56K per
cent. Sterling exchange dull but steady at
S4 Sii for fiO-day bills and SI SSJi for demand.

The Bnnk of ritlsbnrc Issues an Important
Notice to .Stockholders.
The Directors of the Bank of Pittsburg have
issued a notice to stockholders to the effect
that the charter under which that institution
is operated will soon expire and urging them
to adopt prompt measures to secure a renewal
This must be done before the expiration of
the charter, otherwise a general law of the
Legislature will be necessary to prevent tho
bank from going out of existence. Tho latter
result would be a calamity to the business in
terests of the city. The importance of the
notice to the stockholders is therefore ap
parent THE SPIRIT OF '
A Bullish Influence Boosts Qnoi Which
Move Up n Foint,
The first business day of the new year atihe
Petroleum Exchange was characterized by a
strong market and free buying. The influence
was bullish, lioth here and in New York. Field
news favored, higher prices, several wells of
which much had been expected burning out
badly. The opening price was87. Free bid
ding, attended with considerable excitement,
soon sent the figures up to 88. Another jump
was then made to S This was followed by a
drop, caused by reports of a strike in the Wash
ington field. As soon as the report was shown
to be bogus another advance was scored to SSJ.
The market closed strong at 88. The lowest
price touched was 87 and the highest 88.

The Boom Still On-Good Demand for Itcsi-
dener Properties Latest Sales.
Iiarge as were the transactions in real estate
last year in Pittsburg and adjacent boroughs'
and townships, the present year will probably
witness even a greater movement. The feeling
is in the direction of a boom. Of conrse this
means higher prices. Just now the call Is for
residence property, although business sites are
quickly snatched up hcn offered at reasonable
figures. Yeterda's transactions include:
William A. Herron Son, lot 2090. on
Adams street, near Preble avenue, Allegheny,
900 cash.

New York, January 2, The stock market
at tho opening of the new year was something"
of a disappointment W) the advocates of higher
figures, as the day, except for a short time in
the early morning, was given u to tho bears,
although tho impression made upon values, ex
cept in a few special instances, was not of
special importance. The rise of the last part
of Monday was continued in the early trading
with London quite a conspicuous buyer, and
the temper of the room was generally bullish,
though the traders who were doing the most of
the business were taking profits. The buying
soon became scattered and the bears came to
the front again, as circumstances were for the
moment greatly in their favor.
Monev was working very closely, rates being
held at 6 per cent all the forenoon, and later
moved up to 8 per cent the limit The rumor
from Chicago of a hitch in the carrying out of
the agreement 3mong tbo Granger-roads, and
Boston sent a story of a probable passing of
the next dividend on Atchison with the report
of the earnings for November, showed a loss of
nearlv S200.0UO, and, although this was about
100,000 better than had been expected, the
effect upon the value of tho stock was very
marked. It dropped 3 per cent and pressure
was brought against the other Grangers, Rock.
Island, Burlington and Bt Paul each yielding'
over a point Some effort was made to make
it 'appear that Mr. Gould was not In
svmpathy with an advance at present, and
Missouri Pacific was forced off materially.
Outside of the shares mentioned, however, the
losses were confined to fractions only, and
good buving appeared at tho low range of
quotations which latter rallied the list and
Coal stocks became specially prominent for
strength, .lersy Central in particular leading
the upward movement with a gain of over a
point and a half. Reading and Lackawanna
were not so strongly affected by the bullish re
ports on the Coalers, but the former was helped
by the rise in the bonds, which were higher on
rumors from Philadelphia of payment on tho
first and second incomes. Bull points were
circulated frtely upon New England, and that
stock was one of the most active on the list,
but its range of prices was not marked and it
finally closed at an insignificant change from
its Monday's figures.
The opening figures were from an V, to per
cent abovo Monday's prices, with Missouri Pa
cific in the lead, but there was very little vim
to the subsequent trading, and with the ex
ceptions of New England and Lackawanna, no
strength appeared. Atchison soon oame to tho
front being very weak, and the rest of the list
slowly followed, leading gradually un'il toward
1 P. 31. Rock Island, Burlington, St. Paul and
Missouri-Pacific, however, in turn became
prominently weak, and all retired a material
amount before the rally set in. Jersey Central
sprang into activity and rapidly advanced K
per cent bringing the rest of the list with ft
although in none were the early losses entirely
recovered. Atchison moved up a point, but the
recovery was afterward again lost The up
ward movement was not of long duration, and
in the last hour the marketagain became quiet i
anally closing dull and stoady. generally at
fractional losses.for tho day. Jersey Central
shows an advance of 1 per cent, but Atchison
is down 3, Burlington 1, Rock Island 1
and Missouri Pacific 1.
The special feature ot the dealings in rail
road bonds to-day was the activity and strength
in the Reading incomes and 4s. and the la-t-named
bonds contributed S257.000, the first in
comes $162,000, and the second incomes $153,000
out of a total day's business of 31,551,000. The
tone of the general market while rather firm,
showed no decided character, and the changes
in quotations for the day aro in all except a
few instances for slieht fractions only, tbo
Fort Worth and Denver firsts only displaying"
anv animation.

Wednesday. January 2, 18b9.
Country Produce Jobbing Price.
The country produce trado has not awakened
from its holiday quiet. Retailers and con
sumers are evidently pursuing the hand to
mouth policy until old bills are settled. Butter
continues on its downward way; prices are off lc
at Elgin. If ever greed defeated Its own end,
it was when, the big advance on Elgin
creamery was mado a month or more ago.
The reaction from flctitiousalues sought to be
established then has sent prices so low that the
difference in jobbing rates 'twixt now and then
is fully 12c per pound. Eggs, too, continue very
slow. There have been few holiday seasons in
recent years when eggs brought' as low prices
as during that just passed. The purchaser who
is ready to put up cash will have little difficulty
securing the best egg going in job lots at 22c.
Poultry is scarce and firm and likely to con
tinue so through tho winter, as stuff throngh

to depress markets in this line. The output of
flour fat Northwestern mills week before last
was little more than one-half that of the cor
responding week of 1887. This is due to the
combination to restrict product acreed on at
Milwaukee a couple of weeks ago. The effort to
hold Vp prices ot flour by curtailing output has
yielded uo practical fruit as yet other than that
