Some Defects in Commercial Methods
of Our Merchants,
WHICH HURT IS TIMES OP PLENTY.
Trade features of Interest Concerning
POULTRY, HOGS AND TEOYISIONS
OFFICE OF THE PnTSBUEG DISPATCH, ?
Monday, January 14, 1SS9.
' One of our leading commission merchants
opened up on the commercial situation to
day thus wise: "I don't know whether
there is any other great center of trade in
the land where markets are so easily broken
by a big run pf stuff as our own. The great
trouble with Pittsburg jobbers is that they
viU not unite lor their own interests. It seems
to be every man for himself, and a natural se
quence of this business principle iv hen markets
a,reoerstocked,asthey have been of late, is
that it is the devil for us all. Tradesmen neru
are so jealous of each other that it has been
thus far impossible to eifect any mutual pro
tectne combination which would enable us to
tide over such a condition of thincs as we are
now having In Jcomnicrcial lines. There arc
alwavs merchants here who, lien stuff accu
mulates as it has been doinR of late, are reaay
to throw their products on the markets, so as
to demoralize trade. Ibeliexeour citj to be
ueof the worst points of trade iu the land in
this respect Bj reason of the business meth
ods of uiiny trades people here we do not, as
other cities do, reap the benefit of any advance
in prices, and at the same time are sure to ex
perience to the full anj droj in markets. Our
business methods are certainl capable of lajcc
improvement belore we attain the standard ol
other great commercial centers."
CHEESE KEMAINS TIBII.
It is a pleasure to note in the midst of such
depressed produce markets as we are having
tome lines which do not share in the general
With all the downward drift in most lines
since the beginning of the jeai, cheese has
continued firm and cannot continue much
limper in its firm state without an advance in
Though not quotably higher, advices from
3Ccw York point to a rise in the near future.
The visible supplvof cheese is more than 100,000
boxes short ot this time a year ago. Poultrj,
also, has held up well, when the glut in other
farmers' products is taken into consideration.
Choice nearby poultry is in good demand at
outside quotations. The sanio is true of choice
country butter. With all the fluctuations of
creamery butter and common country rolls the
past two months, fancy country rolls have
changed verj little, except to go up higher. A
Liberty street commission merchant to-day ex
pressed the belief that not more than one-tenth
of that which now passed for butter could, in
the largest charity, be called the genuine prod
uct of cow's milk. Those who bring the genu
ine to market have no trouble securing outside
prices for their commodity. The millions are
consuming alleged butter, and are in blissful
ignorance of the fact that a very small propor
tion of what they spread on their biscuits
comes from cow's cream.
HOGS A"D TROVISIOXS.
Receipts of bogs at Chicago to-day were 2S.O0O
fccad. The range of -rices was $5 15(35 2U. At
East Liberty the range is $5 155 00, which is
about the same price as Saturday.
The following statement of the bog and pro
vision situation was received to-day by one of
our large packing firms from a Chicago house:
"Receipts of hogs the past week were 111,696
and 2ifcl2 shipped. For the corresponding
week a ear ago receipts were 144,49 and ship
ments 46,419. Our e-timate of receipts for the
coming week is 120,000head. Quality continues
good and weights heavy. Mixed and heavy
lioc are about 10c hicher than a week ago, and
SOgoOc loner than this time last sear.
"Packing to date at Chicago 903,000, against
J.24AO0O for the same time last jear. Pro-
isions are firmer in sympathy with a stronger
market for hogs. Cablegrams indicate an ad
vance on hams and lard. Statistics point to
liigher prices. A lowering of values is hardly
possible. Already there is a c advance on
medium and light weight hams. Arguments
favorable to the bbort side have been dis
counted and doubtless can now have little
effect. The only thing that come to the aid of
cborls is a larger run of hogs than any of us
have figured on, a condition not at all prob
able." MARKETS LT TELEGRAPH.
Wheat Breaks Under S?pccnlntlve Offerings

jml Short Ribs Weak.
Chicago A large business was transacted
In wheat to-day and prices again touched a
lower point, reaching below the dollar mark
for May. The decline was solely the result of
realizing on "long" wheat. The opening was a
little stronger, and prices early m the session
were advanced c above the closing figures of
Saturday, due to rather free covering of shorts
and possibly the buying of some long wheat in
expectation of a reaction. But the speculative
offerings continued heavy, and when the most
urgent demands were supplied a weak feeling
Fetin. There evidently is a lack of confidence
influenced by the recently developed weakness
in the market, and operators are afraid of more
long wheat coming on the market. The result
of the heavy offerings was a decline of 2c
from the top figures reached early in the morn
ing, which decline was followed bj Jc advance,
and the closing was qmet and Ic lower than
Corn ruled quiet most of the session. The
feeling developed was weaker, and this was at
tributed lanlelj to the large increase in the
visible supply. The opening was about the
Eame as the closing prices of Saturday, and the
market ruled steady for a time, but soon sold
off Jfc when the visible became known, ruled
steadv and closed Kfiic lower than Saturday.
Speculative trading in Ma oats was fair, but
in near futures exceedingly light. Shorts took
advantage f liberal' offerings, but prices de

A very brisk trade was reportedin mess pork,
and prices rnled irregular. Opening sales w ere
made at 10c decline, and then a slight rally of
5c occurred. Later the market w eakened,
and prices receded 30'32Hc on the whole range.
Jsear tbe close the feeling was steadier, and
prices advanced 2J5i but closed rather quiet.
Quite an active speculative business was
transacted in lard and the feeling was greatlv
unsettled. Prices closed full 25c lower.and
a further reauction of 17f20c was submitted
to. At the close the market was steadier and
prices rallied slightly.
More was doing in short ribs and the feeling
was weak and unsettled. Prices opened 25c

Chicago 'Unable to Lead in the Iron
A Big Break in Oil After the Crafty Bulls
Had Fixed Things to Salt Them.
LOCAL STOCKS AT HIGH WATEil MAEK
Charles Thompson, an iron broker doing
business in Chicago, was circulating about
town yesterday looking over the situation.
In a brief interview on the outlook he ex
pressed a very hopeful! conviction. He
said: "While tiade is rather slack, it is far
from discouraging. Everything indicates a
revival. Manufacturers feel this in their
bones, and are holding on to their stocks; at
least, they arc making no special efforts to
effect sales. This is especially true of the
furnacemen. Pig iron is bound to go up.
Building operations will be on a large
scale as soon as spring opens. This will make
a big demand for structural iron and nails.
In short, I regard the iron trade as in excellent
Mr. Thompson was asked for his opinion on
the relative advantages of Chicago and Pitts
burg as iron-producing centers, and replied:.
"Thotwo cities are not rivals in the proper
sense of the word. Each has advantages which
no amount of discussion can affect. Chicago's
proximity to the great Northwest, where most
of the railroad building is going on, is an ad
vantage to her in the matter of railroad rates.
This is a big item on heavy freight, such as
rails and ores. But even this advantage may
be eliminated by the adjustment of tariffs to
conform strictly to the inter-State commerce
law. On the other hand. Pittsburg has natural
gas and other facilities for manufacturing
which are bound to keep her at the head of the
iron business in this country. Her wares are
encountered everywhere. Chicago is full of
them. They are not only cheap, but equal to
the best in the market. Then her river and
railroad systems give her access to the South
and Southwest, where she has practically a
monopoly, and where she has nothing to fear
"The talk about Pittsburg taking a second-
ary place to Chicago or any other city as an
iron center is simply nonsense. Nobody who
knows anythingabout the business entertains
such an idea. It is preposterous. As well try
to deprive Connellsville of its pre-eminence in
the coke business."
GAS STILL ON TOP.

A GOOD 0PENLNG.
Oil Start! Off With a Boom, bat
Oil started off with a boom yesterday at S&Kc,
c higher than on Saturday. There was good
beginning during the first two hour;, Finkerton
taking several big blocks. This encouraged
the boys, and there was quite a tussle betweeA
the bullsand the bears, the former having the
best of the fight for a brief period, the quota
tion shooting up to Siiic, which was high-water
mark for the day. Support was then withdrawn
and prices were chipced off little by little until
S6c was reached. This was the lowest and clos
ing price. . ft
The feeling when the hammer fell was rather
bearish. A scramble was the cause of the
jump. Except for a short time after the open
ing it was a pikers' market. Oil City and New
York were sellers. Field news was bearish.
Opening, 86Mc; highest, 87c: lowest, 86c;

A Better Feeling Takes Possession of Wall
Street Bond Improvlns
New York, January 14. The stock market
was more active to day than it has been for a
long time, and its tone was decidedly strong,
while there was no improvement in quotations
except in a few of the specialties. There was a
much better feeling in the street this morning;
and most of the advocates of higher figures
were very hopeful that the long-expected im
provement would arrive this week. The for
eigners had moderate buying orders in the
market, and London figures were higher than
our prices of Saturday.
The Grangers and Southwestern attracted
most attention, but the business was very well
distributed throughout the active list There
were many bull points upon New England
afloat, and the stock was very prominent in the
forenoon, but made no further gain after that
time. Among the specialties Pullman became
the feature of the day, and after a small de
cline rose rapidly above 5 per cent. Omaha
and Consolidated Gas were also prominent for
the strength displayed, and these stocks are
alone this evening in showing marked ad-
The opening figures were from J4Per
cent higher than Saturday's prices generally,
while Omaha was exceptional with a gain of 1
percent. The market was veryactlve but no
further improvement was made in prices, and
there was even a slight falling off in the early
trading in most of the stocks dealt in. This
was soon recovered, however, and toward noon
more decided strength was developed. The
final changes are almost all in the direction of
higher figures, although they are for fractional
amounts only, except in Pullman, which rose
4 Omaha 1 and Consolidated Gas 1
Railroad bonds gave additional evidence of
the improved feeling in securities to-day, be
inc both moro active and stronger than even
for the past week. The total sales of all issues,
which extended to an unusually large number,
were $2,157,000, and the specially active bonds
w ere Bock Island 5s, which contnbuted $289,
000. the Reading 1st preferred incomes, 8226,
000, and the Reading general 4s, $267,000 to the
dav's total. The tone of the market was firm
to strong throughout the day and many issues
show marked advances.

Cattle receipts were 28 loads, against 18 last
week. Of those received not more than two or
three loads were heavy weights, ranging from
1,600 to 1,700 pounds. The highest price received
for these heavy grades was $5 50. There were
among the receipts not more than a half a hun
dred low grade stock. The bulk was medium
,to good butcher stock, weighing from 1,100 to
1,400 pounds, and the average, as to quality,
was a slight improvement on last week's re
ceipts, and a very great improvement on re
ceipts of a month or two ago. The heavy
grades sold at abont the same figure as last
week. Other grades are 15c to 25c higher. The
range of prices is from $3 GO to So 50. Veal
calves are scarce and In good demand at 6c to
7c per pound.
Sheep and lambs Sheep receipts footed up
about 600 head, being a slight decline from the
receipts of last week.
Average quality is a shade better than last
week, and for the best prices are 25o per cwt
better. The range of prices for sheep are $2 50
to $5 25, and for lambs 85 00 to $6 75.

day there are little above 600 head. Fewer
heavy hogs are among this week's supplies.
The range for hogs is $5 00 to $5 60. A leading
dealer reports that heavy hogs which sold to

when there was an unusual scarcity of lard.
The margin between prices ol heavy and light
hogs is every week growing smaller.
In all live stock lines a better market is re

the feeling among dealers is that the tide has
turned toward a "better day.

YERY VITAL AS A TEST,
Constable Mcln ern ey's Trial for Falling to
Return Brooks Law Violators Other
A trial, interesting and important, more
because of its contingent bearing upon the
general enforcement or non-enforcement of
the Brooks liquor law by constables than
for any inherent novelty, is that of the
Commonwealth against Constable P.McIner
ney, of the Fifth ward, opened yesterday
before Judge Slagle. The indictment was
found on a prosecution against Mclnerney by
1 Police Inspector McAleese for failure to re
turn the names of unlicensed saloonlsts whom
the defendant knew or had reason to know
were selling Honors. Mclnerney. who has
been a constable seven years, will, if convicted,
bo liable to a year's imprisonment and a $500
fine. District Attorney Porter and Attorney
Burleigh prosecute the 'case, and Attorneys
Reardon, O'Donnell and Robb represent the
defense. This is the first similar case tried in
Pennsylvania under tbo official misdemeanor
provision of the Brooks law.
It required nearly half a day to set an un
biased jury. Then numerous witnesses were
sworn for the prosecution; among them In
spector McAleese himself, County License
Agent R. S. P. McCall, George Anderson, An
drew Dalzell, Officer Pierce Brennen, Captain
George V. Mercer. M. J. Dean andMarshall H.
Reno, stenographer, who took the original evi
dence before Judge White.
In substance these witnesses swore that Mrs.
'McGIinchey's place had been running without
concealment, with the beer pump working and
15 or 20 empty kegs in the yard: that Frank
Eberle. though indicted at tho instance of
Agent McCall, was not thereafter returned by
the constable: that the defendant had been re
peatedly notified about Mrs. Quinn and Win
Smith's violations of the law, but had said
there was "no money in returning them," and
he "didn't want to have Smith sent to tho
works to die;" that the defendant had drank
beer with Dalzell in Mrs. Quinn's; that all the
places unreported were of unsavory notoriety,
and made no concealment not only, bnt were re
ported to the constable to be returned.
Taking the stand himself, Mclnerney denied
all the material evidence against him, except
his grounds for suspicion, and the case went
over until this morning.
