Dealers in Hides and Calf Skins Ee
solre on Lower Scale
Calf Skins Touch the lowest Price Since
Before the War.
Officz of the Pittsbukg Dispatch, )
Satckday, January 5, 1889.
The market for hides has shown a dorn
ward drift for a month or two past. Iu the
early part of D.ecember, light hides were
reduced lc per pound, and now heavy hides
hare been fixed to follow suit. A drop in
heavy hides of lc, and calf skins of c per
pound was agreed upon 1t the leading tanners
of Allegheny this week, the reduction to go into
effect Monday, January 7. Prices arc now
fully lc lower all around than at this time last
year when it was thought bottom had been
Said a leading dealer in hides: "The demand
was very poor all through last month, and
there is, thus far in the new year no nnticeahlo
improvement. Tanners have been stocking upat
present low prices, and are generally provided
with stock a month to six weeks ahead of
needs. This tends to depress markets. o
have had similar spells before, and feel con
fident that the depression will work its own
cure, when tanners once get stock worked up,
which cannot be longer than a month hence.
In the 15 years I have been in the business I
. havi nrvpr known hides as lowas tbey are now.
Old timers sav that hides have not been as low
since before tbe war as they are now. There
can hardly fail to be an improvement in prices
and oemand in the next few weeks. The sitna
tion is now at its worst. Things can't stay
long at the worst, and as we leel that our trade
is at its worst, are confident of an improvement
bet een now and February.
Raw calf-skins, according to the testimony of
dealers, have no been as low in the memory of
the oldest inhabitant as now.
ot more than a dozen years ago the price
was 15c per pound. Year by year prices have
been drooping until, as will be seen by quota
tions below. 5c is now the figure. The reason
for this decline is thus given by a dealer: "By
improved machinery tanners are now enabled
to tplit cow hides into three pieces, two of
which are finished up so as to make as good an
appearance as the average calfskin.
"The growth of this split-leather trade has
worked against the demand for calfskins, and
brought prices of the latter down to these pres
ent low figures."
Following are the prices of hides and calf
skins to go into effect on Monday, January', as
furnished by John H. Stratman tCo., 416

Green steer hides, trimmed, 75 lbs and up, Tc
Green steer hides, trimmed, 60 lbs to 75 lbs, 7c

At Chicago to-day hogs have advanced strong
10c and markets are reported firm at the ad
vance. At East Liberty receipts have been
large and prices are off about 20c from the mid
dle of the week. Rates here are fully 15c be
low Chicago rates to-day.
The average weight of hogs received at Chi
cago for December was 262 pounds For the
same month of 1SS7 the average was 235. an in
crease of 27 pounds, which dealers consider im
mense. In ordinary seasons heavy hogs bring from 25
,to SOc per pound more than light hogs. This
year they are about 10c lower. Heavy weights
are too plenty, light weights not up to demand.

An Encouraging Frospect Abend.
A review of the week's operations in local
business circles discloses several interesting
features. The feeling in nil directions was J
hopeful, if not buoyant Trade, almost
without exception, showed a gain over the
corresponding period of last year. There
were no breakers ahead so far as could be
discovered. Everything was resting on a
substantial basis. There was very little
ballooning. Money was working easily,
accommodations being readily obtained on ac
cepted collateral, iron men had reason to ex
pect a turn of the tidein their favor. Coal and
coke were being placed on a better basis.
Stocks were in demand with a large aggregate
of transactions. There were several notable
advances. Oil was unsettled under bearish in
fluence, nd the result of the week's efforts
was to leave prices fractionally lower. Ihe
cost of the buildings for which permits were
granted will aggregate about S15.000. Real
estate, especially building sites, found many
applicants, and a large number of sales were
The Market Active nnd Prices Firm More
Buyer Than Seller.
Stockf exhibited a waywardness Saturday
that confused buyers and sellers alike. Phila
delphia Gas, as usual of late, received the
lion's share of attention, and moved up and
down with a celerity that would have done
credit to an acrobat. The variations, however,
were bo small as to cause no particular alarm
to either side of the market Chartiers Val
ley made a substantial gain over the preceding
day. All the gas shares were active and gen
erally Ann. Wcstingbouse Electric recovered
eome of its lost around. There was no special
demand for Traction stock. The general tone
of the market was Arm. The total sales aggre
gated S71 shares, of which 710 were Pbiiadel-'

stocks, but the sellers wero few.

Banking Operations Show on Increaae Over

Business at the banks for the first weeTc of
the new year shows a material increase over
that for the same time in 1858, with a still better
prospect Easiness in nearly all lines is so
active and so indicative of expansion that an
unusual demand for money is expected in the
near future, sufficient, it is thought, to absorb
the largeamonntof funds that has accumulated
within tbe past few weeks.
Bankers have been too busy since tho begin

dividends and straightening uoaccounts. to pay
close attention to strictly legitimate business,
but nevertheless thev all concur in the state

monetary circles yesterdav. business was far
removed from the ttip Van Vwnkle state.
Large amounts of cash were taken in over the
counters and considerablepaid out the former

Twenty Minnies of Good Trading In Oil,
Closing Dull and Lower.
Tbe bulk of the business at the Oil Exchange
yesterday was transacted in the first 20 min
utes. There was considerable excitement at
the opening, attended with free buying. This
stiffened the market and prices moved up a
point, to SOU. Trading then relapsed into a
state of dullness, which lasted until the close,
which was i4 below the opening. The market
closed weak and uncertain as to the future,
owing to the impossibility of fathoming the de
signs of the Standard. That it is engaged ins
deal of some kind no one doubts.
Pivotal prices ranged: Opening, 86; highest,
S6K: lowesr. 56; closing, S6Jjf. Field news was
a little mere encouraging. Brokers almost
without exception concur in the opinion that
there will be little or no improvement so long
as prices remain on the existing basis. Ninety
cantor dollar oil would interest outsiders and
quicken trade.

An Experiment in Drilling A Big Purchase
Officer Elected.
Washington, Pa., January 6. An expert
ment of great interest to oil men is about to be
tried in the Taylorstown held. Contractor
Yorkc, who has the contract for sinking
Thompson No. 4, is making arrangements to
test a wire cable for drilling. lie is using a
five-eighths-inch wire rope as a sand line,and it
has given perfect satisfaction. The price of
the common hemp cable now in use recently
advanced 2 cents a pound, making it cost 15
cents, and the cost of a 2,400 foot cable, weigh
ing 3,200 or 3,300 pounds thus formed a largo
portion of the contractor's expense. The wire
cable which Mr. Yorke is preparing to use
will be one inch in diameter, and besides weigh
ing less per foot than the old hemp cable, will
cost only about one-fourth as much per pound.
Attempts have already bee cmade to supercede
the hemp cables with tbe wire ones, but for
some reason they have never come into use.
Pat Galligan. the well-known contractor, says
that he helped drill a well on Oil creek with a
wire cable 22 years since, und that it worked
very nicely, but did not harmonize with the
imperfect machinery of those days. About 14
years since, at St. Joseph, Butler county, an at
tempt was made to pump the Weiser well with
a wire cable in lieu of sucker rods, but it was a
failure, as the outside strands wonld soon wear
out and the pieces which dropped down inter
fered with the valves.
Joe Craig has made another big purchase in
the Taylorstown field, paying $15,Cu0for the
interest of Pat Biggins in the White farm. Mr.
Biggins owned a three-sixteenths interest in tbe
Shamrock and one-eighth in the Allegheny
Oil Company, which together control 98 acres
of tiio White farm, and they now have three

a day. N'o. 3 is just being completed and shows
good for probably 150 barrels a day. Its coming
in this way makes quite a lot of the surrounding
territory which was apparently condemned by
the dry holes drilled by Caldwell & Co., on the
W. B. and S. J. Crothers farms, look quito
good again. The Elyria Oil Company's Weirich
well should be in shortly and give some Indica
tion as to how far south the pool extends.
Quite a serious mischance happened at the
Buffalo Oil Company's William Knox No. 6 a
day or two since. An attempt was made to
shoot' the well with 20 quarts, but it was not
known whether the glycerine exploded or not.
The next day the tools were run and coming in
contact with the glycerine exploded it, shatter
ing the tools and probably plugging the hole.
The following officers of the Well Drillers'
Union, of this place, were elected last night:
President, Daniel Bell; First Vice President.
William Grcen:Second Oice President, George
Swingle; Recording Secretary, James Callinan;
Financial Secretary, Frank Coulter; Delegate
to General Assembly, Frank B. Snyder.
Buffalo Oil Company's Knox No. 4 has been
drilled through the sand, and is small. It is
good for only 40 to CO barrels a day.

Stocks Without Speclnl Feature but Close a
Trifle Hither.
NEW YOEK, January 5. The stock market
was not so dull as it. has been on some previous
Saturdays to-day, but it was as devoid of feat
ure as possible, and tbe result of the day's
transactions is to leave almost everything but
Bhghtly changed. There was very little doing
on the part of tbe commission people and out
siders, and except for Jersey Central and New
England the movements in the list were en
tirely unworthy of notice. Tho Grangers, on
account of the settlement of tho strike on 'the
Burlington, were rather better supported, but
tbey moved within the narrowest limit.
Tbe supporters of Jersey Central seemed to
have exhausted themselves in the effort to get

temper of the room was bullish, but the only
stock making any movement of importance in
the upward direction was New England, and
although tbe sales made were said to be for
Boston account, there was a good demind for
the stock, and it scored a gain of nearly a point,
but lost a portion later. The advances are in a
small majority this evening, but are confined
to fractions.
Railroad bonds were quiet but firm to strong
throughout, and final figures show marked
gains in some instances. The sales were
Real Eslnto Transfers Make a Good Show
Ine The Sale Increasing.
Three of the principal real estate dealers on
Fourth avenue when buttonholed for news yes
terday got off by saying: "We have something
big on the string, but it is not in shape to make
public." It is understood that one of the "big
things" refers to the sale of a business house
on Penn avenue and another to a dicker of the
same sort in Allegheny. There are plenty of
applicants mostly for residence properties
but tbey hesitate at the prices. As there is no
prospect of a tumble they would probably
make money by investing at once. The trans
lers consummated are noted below:
Allesi Bailey sold a business property on

held. Reed RCoyle 4 Co. sold 24 lots in the B. M.

Steps Taken to Protect the Old Tombs and
Cairo Letter to New York Mall.
The Egyptian Government has at last
taken steps to preserve the monuments from
the further detacement of the tonrist and
the destruction of time. A law went into
effect two weeks ago obliging all who wish
to visit the temples, tombs and other antiq
uities on the Nile to carry a ticket which
costs $5. It is estimated that this admission
fee will yield an annual revenue of 510,000.
Every lover of art and history will be glad,
to hear that the sum is' wisely used to pro
tect an architecture which has been left
utterly unprotected for centuries. The
learned and the unlearned alike have made
tree with ancient inscriptions and sculpture.
Lepsius enriched German museums by
chiseling out royal cartouches from the
tombs of the Kings at Thebes, and the
Egyptian peasant chips off without restric
tion any portion of sculptured figures that
may realize a small reward from the seeker
of relics.
No land has been so generous with her
monuments as Epypt, from the obelisk,
which the late Mr "W. H. Vanderbilt re
moved from Alexandria to the Central Park,
New York, down to the valuable cruciform
inscriptions discovered last winter at Tel-el-Amarna;
but Egypt cannot afford to allow
the work ot hacking and destruction to con
tinue upon her great monuments which
will never be removed. The only illustra
tion of an attempt to preserve from decay
which I have seen was at Phils. A large
slab of the pediment of Pharaoh's Bed,
which was cracked and about to fall, threat
ening the disfigurement of the entire beau
tiful structure, has been frapped by a band
of iron and held in place. The inscription
indicates the parties who did it: "2d Com p.
B. E., 1887."
On the Suit Brought Against the Western
Union by tho Attorney General.
Philadelphia, January 6. The Phil
adelphia managers of the Western Union
Telegraph Company were served with writs
of quo warranto yesterday commanding
them to appear at Harrisburg on the 29th
instant to explain why their property in
Pennsylvania should not be forfeited to the
State because of the alleged violation oi the
Constitution and tbe laws in the purchase
by their coamany of the Baltimore and
Ohio Telegraph Company, a competing line.
Dr. Norvin Green, the President of the
"Western Union, in speaking. about the suit,
There is no good ground for the suit, and we
are not at all disturbed by it. Just who the
parties that havo instituted the suit are I do
not know, as I have not seen the papers. At
tbe time of the purchase of the Baltimore and
Ohio property by us we Ruarded against the
very points that are raised by this suit. Under
the United States law of 1SS6 all telegraph com
panies wero given the right to operate tbelr
lines in an states, ana even n mere is a renn
sylvania State law, as is alleged, it would have
no effect in the face of the United States law.
The United States Supreme Court has decided
over and over again that telegraph business
is Interstate commerce, and cannot be inter
fered with by State action or statute.
There is no consolidation of tho Western
Union and tbe Baltimore and Ohio Telegraph
Companies. The latter is still maintained as a
separate and competing company. Then again
the Western Union, when it made the pur
chase, did not buy that portion that was oper
ated under the Pennsylvania charter. The
Baltimore and Ohio parent company was char
tered under, the Maryland laws. In each one
of the other States, where the company built
lines separate State charters were secured, and
each of these separate companies was leased by
the original company. The Pennsylvania Com
pany was not included in the purchase, we ex
pressly refusing to purchase, as we were aware
of tbe stringent State charter and did not care
to enter into any controversy over it.
Nebraska Citizens TJusiou Winchester Rifles
to Protect the County Records.
Elwood, Neb., January 6. The Sheriff
and a posse of 75 men made a descent ou
.Homerville yesterday, and in the absence of
the county officials at McCook, disarmed
the citizens who were guarding the court
house with "Winchester rifles, and brought
back a portion of the county records to El
wood. On November 30 a long and bitter fight
for the location of the county seat ot Gos
per county culminated in" an election
in which the necessary two-thirds vote
for its removal from Homerville to El
wood was secured. Homerville, however,
refused to give up the records. The latest
development of course divides the records
between the two towns and broadens the
chasm between their respective citizens,
with excellent prospects of further hostility
in the near future.
Fighting Between American and Mexican
Cattle Bleu in Arizona.
Tucson, Abiz., January 6. Advices
from Solomonville. Ariz., say James Lassi
ter, foreman of the Chiracahua Cattle Com
pany's jcamp on the Bonita river, a tribu
tary of the Gila, has -arrived and brings
news of the trouble between the company's
men and some Mexican sheepmen from
Apache country, which resulted in the kill
ing of at least three Mexicans on Thursday.
He states that the Mexicans have been
grazing a flock of sheep near the company's
range,' which brought on trouble, and the
Mexicans on Thursday ambushed some of
the company's men. It seems, however,
none of the latter were killed, while it is
probable all the sheepmen met their deaths.
The under-sheriff and the Coroner have
gone to the scene of the trouble.
One Goes to the Bottom and the Chief En

Baltimore, January 6. The British
steamship Montana, Captain "Williams,
which sailed this morning for Lon
don with an assorted cargo and
214 head of cattle, was this
afternoon in collision off North Point with
the North German Lloyd's steamer Main,
Captain Jaegar, which was coming in from
Bremen. The Montana was struck full in
side and sunk in a few minutes. Chief En
gineer Kobcrt M. Young was killed, but the
rest of the crew was transferred to the Main.'
The latter vessel was not injured. The
Montana is one year old, was 320 feet long,
and was valued at $300,000. The cargo was
worth nearlv as much more. The latter
was mostly .shipped throuch from the West,!

Armour & Co., of Chicago. The greater
portion ol the cattle were drowned.
Mrs. Jacob Greenup, of Bonne Terre,
Mo., thought she heard her eldest son, a man
ot 27, singing a favorite song in his bedroom.
She knew lie must be at work at"a saw mill,
and, feeling nervous, started out to see him.
As she stepped through the front door men
were carrying the lifeless remains of the son
Into the yard. He bad been killed by the

A Wet Saturday Dampens Produce

Country Produce, Jobbing Prices. -
Saturday is proverbially quiet in produce
lines, and when the skies are weeping as to-day,
the quietness is intensified. The prayers of
commission merchants are in the direction of
blizzards and old-fashioned winter weather.
Weather so far has not been cold enough for
hens to lose their grip, and eggs are dull and
dropping at insido quotations. Dairy products
are little better, though an improved tone to
cheese is reported.
Vegetable and fruit markets continue in
favor of buyers.
The customer with cash has little difficulty
obtaining concession on quotations.
There is still a market scarcity of poultry and
prices in this line rule firm.

A Break in Wheat Caused by Speculative
Offerings Corn Neglected Oats Active
Pork Steadier Lard Firm.
Chicago There was a very fair aggregate
trade in wheat to-day and the feeling was un
settled. The news wasof a variable character
and generally made to appear favorable to the
bull side, and although prices ruled higher at
the start, the speculative offerings were too
heavy to sustain the market and aweak feeling
set in. A prominent local operator was
credited with having fed the market with
wheat most of the session, and as other oper
ators w,ere all loaded with long wheat the de
cline brought most of this out, thus aiding in
establishing the decline. The opening was
some c higher than yesterday, advanced K
and then declined lc, advanced c and closed
Jc lower than yesterday. There was a rumor
that drought in India was doing damage to the
crop there, and that shipments from Russian
ports were cut off by ice. Some export demand
.was again reported at Baltimore.
Corn was In much the same condition as on
yesterday, there being but little disposition
anions: local operators to trade to any extent,
and the pit at times was quite deserted. Tho
feeling was notably steady and fluctuations
limited to c range, the market closing about
the same as yesterday.
In oats a good business was transacted early
In the session. Offerings by several large trad
ers were free and prices for -May declined c.
After the urgent sellers had withdrawn there
was a little offered, a few buyers came in, and
prices reacted to opening figures.
Ouly a fair trade was reported In mess pork,
and the feeling was steadier. Little was doing
outside of May contracts. Opening sales were
made at 5c advance, and afurtherimprovement
of 5c was gained. Later the offerings wero in
creased somewhat and prices declined 1215c
Toward the close the market was stronger and
prices rallied 2022c, closirg comparatively
Trading was only moderately active in lard,
and tho feeling was stoadier. Prices ruled 7
10 higher, and tbe market closed steady.
Only a limited trade was reported in short
ribs and the market was comparatively steady.
Prices ruled? bout 7K10c higher and closed

The following statement came voluntarily to
the proprietors of ihe great preparation of
which it speaks. They have never had the
pleasure of meeting the eminent scientist who
I-wrote it, but appreciate the honest candor
which prompted it:
This may certify that as the result of extend
ed researches I am able to state that, in the
Duffy Malt Whiskey alone, there is to be bad
such a pure article as I have described in my
paper on "A Scientific Specific for Intemper
ance," in the North American Review for July,
1SS8. It is, of course, a well-known fact that
wo may procure, as a laboratory product, a
whiskey that shall be free of fusil oil: but it is
with pride that I state that alone of commer
cial whiskies the Duffy Malt declines to injure
the brain and tho system.
