Features of Interest as to Situation
of the Cheese Trade.
QUALITY IS GOOD, SUPPLY SHORT.
Too Mnch Low Grade Sweitzer on Markets
to Hold Prices.
HIGH GRADES ARE IN GOOD DE5IAKD
OFFICE OF THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH,!
SATURDAY, January 19, 1SS9. J
The following cheese items are gathered
from recent interviews with leading job
bers: "While the quality ofXew York and Ohio
cheese it above the average this season, the
quantity is below the average. Visible sup
ply at the world's principal distributing
points is upwards of 100.000 boxes below what it
was at this time last year. Though there has
been a depression and downward drift in al
most all produce lines for the past month or
two, cheese has ruled firm, and is now, if all
Elcns do not fail, on the verge of a rise. With
in a few days there was an unusually large sale
lor this time of the year at New York for ex
port purposes. The amount purchsed was
close to 6,000 boxes.
In the past lOdavs there has been an advance
of Is 6d in England, with markets firm at the
advance. Shipments of cheese on foreicn ac
count are good for this season, especially for
low grades. These low prades are boight up
for the East India trade. It is seldom that low
grade cheese is as well cleaned up at this time
of the year as now.
As the market generally hangs on the low
trades, the outlook lor fine cheese was never
Better than it is at this time. It is about as
certain as anvthinc future can well be, that a
good article in the cheese line will command
better prices in a very short time. With the
visible suppl v so much less than a year ago, and
inferior grades so well worked off, the good
article can hardly fail to be at a premium from
now till spring.
Jobbers of Sweitzer cheese tell a very differ
ent story as to the quality of the product this
season. Wisconsin has in recent years
become a great source of supply for
this line of cheese, and produces
the very best Wisconsin sweitzer is now
well up to the imported article, having of late
vears passed Ohio for its production in this
line. For the past season, owing largely to
unfavorable weather in the distant West, Wis
consin has dropped below its standard, and
sends a large amount of low crane s eitzer to
the markets. The old time Ohio factories,
which had the lead in days cone by, have re
covered some of their lost prestige this season
by sending a larger proportion of fine grades to
the market than Wisconsin.
Low irrades. or what is known in the trade as
solid, holeless sweitzer, is coming in such large
volume to markets that prices on these grades
ere little more than nominal. Large quanti
ties of this inferior stuff is stocked up in the
hands of jobbers, and goes begging for custom
ers at 3 to 4c per pound below the desirable
trades. The scarcity of fine grades makes
itiem active at outside quotations.
Never was there a better illustration of the
value of a cood article in country produce
lines than has been furnished through this
whiter. With markets m every line so over
stocked, a fancy article has the winning card
Certain itis is that high grade cheese, both
a regards the regular article and Sweitzer, has
held up well in price all the winter, while other
products have been hard to give away. All

1 With the Bright Outlook of tbe Locnl Busi
ness Situation X Week's Record to bo
Prond of No Phenomenal Activity, but
Everything on a Steadily Growing Basis
Money, Oil, Stocks and Real Estate.
Business the past week was in the direc
tor! of a steady improvement in the volume
of transactions, and a general hardening of
values, the only notable exception being pe
troleum, which gradually yielded to a pow
erful bearish influence that was both unac
countable and unexpected. It was gener
ally conceded that a big deal was being
manipulated, of which selling was a prom
inent factor, with the ulterior purpose of
loading up heavily at 85c and under, and it
became known that there was heavy buying
in Xew Tork and the "West at these figures.
The combination working the deal may
change front any day and put prices up,
but itis probable ithasnot fullysupplied its
wants and will retain its grip on the market
for some time longer. Considerable long oil
was dumped during the week.
The local stock market presented some inter
esting features. There was a lively demand
for all the specialties, gas, traction and electric
heading the list, but holders refused to re
spond, except in cases of urgency. Brokers at
tended the Kxchange day after day with
pockets lull of orders, bnt were unable to ob
tain what they wanted on terms satisfactory to
their customers. These securities, with their
growing possibilities, were considered good in
vestments, and those in possession of them
were not anxious to let them go. The result of
this was increased steadiness all along the line,
with comparatively few sales. The inquiry for
hank stocks was unusually urgent, but tbe fig
ures at which they were held were too steep
for ordinary purses. Practically they were out
of the market.
Real estate was active so faras inquiry could
make it so, bnt the number of deals co nsnm
mated was rather beyond the average. It was
difficult to bring buyers and sellers to look at
prices through the same glasses. This di
vergence of views stood In the way of several
transactions. Tbe sensation of the week among
real estate men was the so-called Wood street
deal, embracing an entire block to be used for
hotel purposes. Persistent attempts to run the
rumor down resulted in adding to the mystery.
AU that conld be learned of a reliable nature
was that a Fourth avenue dealer had sold a
property on that street for 5100.009, or there
abouts, and that part of the purchase money
had been paid. All other information was
in an indirect way, that the same parties were
negotiating for the adjoining block, but that
there was a slight hitch in regard to the price.
It was promised that light would be thrown on
tbe subject this week. Inspector Frank granted
38 permits for new buildings principally small
frame residences the estimateo. cost of which
Iron was a shade firmer in consequence of a
slight improvement in the demand, but there
was no change in quotations. Tbe prospect for
a revival increases as the season advances.
Large prospective building operations, it is ex
pected, will more than absorb the stock of
structural iron on hand. Plgnlready feels the
stimulus of increasing business. Coal and coke
were depressed owing to the uncertainty of the
outcome of the labor agitation.

BIDDERS GO BEGGING.
Stock Broken Still Unable to Supply Their
Stocks were strong Saturday but not active,
bidders making nearly all the noise, but ac
complishing little. Brokers were on hand at
the opening of the session, which was presided
over by Captain Barbour, full of orders for all
the specialties, but they were unable to supply
their wants, owing to the advanced vien 8 of
those owning the stuff. The result was there
were onlv two sales one-pf La Nona and one
of Philadelphia Gas. The demand for bank
stocks was something extraordinary, but there
were no responses. Good dividend-payers are
not picked up every day.

The session of the Petroleum Exchange Sat
urday was a short horse and soon curried.
It lasted about two hours. The market was
dull and lifeless from the start. There was no
snap in it. The dumping of long oil and the
producers' nightmare disheartened the boys,
and they resorted to scalping to earn an honest
The opening was 84, under Friday. This
struck the keynote for the day. About 10
o'clock the bulls made a feeble attempt to brace
up. They put their stuff up to 81K,hnMt
wouldn't stay there. The downward procession
was then resumed and continued until the cor
bined noise of gong and gavel announced that
the meeting was over. It was a jolly if not a
happy crowd that trooped out of the exchange
The opening was 84, highest S4K, lowest 84,
closed 84K, higher than Friday. It was an
off day at all of the oil centers. New York
wasauietas well as the West. Outside news
was generally bullish, but had no effect upon
the market. Friday's clearings were 2,148,000

Estate Changing Hands at a Lively
Rate Big Figures.
There was no falling off in the demand for
real estate Saturday. Buyers are beginning to
see that there is no prospect of a reaction in
prices. The necessary result of this clever un
derstanding of the situation is an increased,
number of sales. Were all the transactions re
ported the public wonld be surprised at their
number and magnitude.

Country Prodnce, Jobbing Prices.
Produce commission merchants still sing tbe
old song of quiet trade Cooler weather has
had a bracing influence, and a more hopeful
feeling prevails. But so far, improvement is
mostly in anticipation. The value of eggs is a
mooted question. While some dealers are re
luctant to drop below the 20c per dozen line,
others claim that 16c is the outside jobbing
rate There is no let-up to the firmness of
cheese Of tropical fruits, bananas are a shade
firmer. Country butter keeps accumulating in
the hands of commission merchants. Some re
port that grocery stores here had such quanti
ties shoved on to them by country people that
numbers have unloaded stock on the jobber.
Unadulterated creamery and fancy country
rolls hold their own because of their scarcity.
Advices from tbe East indicate an improved
demand for butter, and the effect is already
seen in our markets by a firmer feeling. AU
signs point to an improvement in general pro

Sarah Smith Is Beckoned Back to
England by Her Friends.
Boston, Mass., January 20. Mrs.
Sarah Smith, an elderly woman, disap
peared from her home in Dedham in Sep
tember last. Nothing being heard from her
she was mourned as dead until last night,
when her son received a letter from her in
England. The story is a strange one.
It appears that Mrs. Smith wandered to
Boston, where she became ill. Charitable
people took pity upon her, and she was
taken to a hospital. Upon becoming con
valescent she expressed a wish to go to her
old home in England. The English Consul
procured for her a passage to England, from
which place she wrote ibe letter to her son.
Mrs. Smith, it appears, was slightly de
ranged at times, having a queer hallucina
tion that friends at a distance were talking
to her or beckoning her to come to them.
At these times, unless she was carefully
watched, she would follow after the imagin
ary friend. It was during one of the strange
freaks that she disappeared, the hallucina
tion at the moment being that she saw her
youngest son, Georges? The strangest part
of the story is that when the ship which bore
Mrs. Smith arrived in Liverpool many per
sons stood upon the wharf to wglcome friends
and relatives. Suddenly some one took her
by the hand and called her "Mother."
Quickly raising her eyes she saw standing
by her her boy George.
This son, George, being out of employ
ment, had shipped on a cattle steamer
bound for Liverpool, which left its moorings
in Boston harbor two or three days before
the departure of the steamer on which Mrs.
Smith took passage. George arrived a few
hours before the latter steamer. After their
strange meeting mother and son went to
London, where she is now living and well
WASTED THE CHECK CASHED,
An Old Colored Man With a Claim
$300,000,000 in Gold.
Boston. Mass., January 20. An
and very tall negro in terribly dilapidated
raiment entered the law office of William E.
McDonald a few days ago and said that he
belonged in Putnam, Conn. He formerly
had in his possession, he said, $300,000,000
in gold. It had disappeared, but he traced
it to Boston. He said further that Charles
Francis Adams met him at Putnam and
fave him a check for the total sum. He
ad walked to Boston and wanted to find
It turned out that the old darky arrived
in Boston with onlv 5 cents in his pocket,
but on the strength of that check he had
been royally entertained by the Ethiopians
at the West End.
An appointment was made to see Mr.
Adams. The old chap hobbled in, and
after scrntinizing the famous railway mana
ger and his brother he took Charles Francis
Adams' head between his hands, and hold
ing it up shouted, "Dat's de manl" Asked
where Mr. Adams was at the time he gave
the check the old man replied:
"Working with de pick-and shovel on
de railroad. Yes, I'se glad I'se fonnd you.
Say, boss, are you going to pay dat air
Mr. Adams and the whole group were
convulsed with laughter, and yet there was
a streak of pathos in the old negro's disap
pointment when Mr. Adams demonstrated
that he was the wrong man, and that the
signature of the bogus check was wholly
unlike his own handwriting. The old man
retained his check, and declared he wonld
find another lawyer to prosecute his claim.

Chaelestox, January 20. Frank
Dickson, who was arrested at Luray, Va.,
a few days ago, charged with wrecking the,
Chesapeake and Ohio train opposite this
city on the morning of October 26, was
brought to this city this morning before
daylight and lodged in jail.
It is reported that mobs were quietly'

days ago with the intention of taking him
from jail and burning him alive as soon as
they conld ascertain definitely that he was

some days ago, and several railway men
from Huntington came here to inquire into
the truth of the rumor.
The jail is a.very secure one and well cal

two militarycompames ready to respond at
any time. Dickson was a foreman employed

A BIG WATE
In Lake Ontario Surprises a Gang of Work
men at Oswego.
Oswego, January 20. While a gang of
men making repairs to the, outer breakwater
here, which was damaged by the great gale
of last week, were abont to stop work last
night a tremendous wave arose about 20 leet
over the top ot the pier, which is 13 feet
above the water level, and swept nine of the
men off the pier. Two tons of stone that
had been dumped on the pier for crib work
was washed off with the men.
After a thrilling experience all were res
cned. Other workmen throw life pre
servers to those in the water, and reached
poles to them. The last man rescued was
going to the bottom, and was about two feet
below the surface when a life preserver fell
directly over him. He grasped wildly for
the preserver, caught it, and raised himself
to the surface. All the men were nearly
exhausted when taken out of the icy water.
One had his teeth knocked out by the stones
being hurled against him.
