'CATTLE TRADE IN BUYERS' PAYOR.
Light Hogs Scarce and Higher, HeaTj
Weights More Slowly,
GOOD SHEEP AXD LAMBS I2J DEMAXD
Office of the Pittsburg Dispatch,
Thursday. January 31, 1SS9.
"With returns for the week all in it ap
pears that local cattle receipts and sales
vary very little this week from last. There
is no improvement in markets. The supply
from Chicago is much lighter this week than
A leadingdealerthusputsthesituation for
the mortu past: "The cattle market since
January 1 has shown features different from
anything I have known in 2J years' experience
" at the liberty yards. As a rule prices advance
through this month, but we have had an alto
gether different experience this season.
Though supplies have been light and for two
or three weeks past little above one-half the
number of heads received at the beginning of
the month, the drift of markets has been
toward lower prices."
At Chicago to-day. on a light run, prices are
a shade off. New York markets show a little
buoyancy, but this fact gives no strength to
markets here. Lancaster county cattle men
are ready at once to take advantage of a rise in
eastern markets before cattle can come in
from the West, upon which we here are de
pendent for our supplies. Buyers from Eastern
Pennsylvania are very scarce this week, the
thcorv being that they are staying at borne for
the purpose of rosbmg stock on to Eastern
markets on the first sign of a rise.
"I have 9eldom seen the cattle market so un
settled and uncertain as we have it this week,"
said an old-time stockman, "and would gladly
give vou a nice little sum if you could guaran
tee what kind of a market we would have next
Prices of 1,400-pound steers arc off fully 75c
per 100 from the ruling rates of two or three
The highest price reached this week was
$4 50, and at Herr's Island, according to well
authenticated reports, these figures have been
shaded for the choicest stock. Markets are
more favorable to buyers than at the beginning
of the week.
Sheep and Lambs.
The week's run of sheep has been so light
that prices have advanced from 15 to SUc per
100 fcs. It will beieeen from the accompanying
report that receipts last week were about 5,000
head larger than this week. Markets here
have been better for some days past than at
otherleading live stock centers.
s The high grades supply has been far short of
demand. The rates lor choice wethers were
CK to 6JJc; choice lambs from 75 to 90 pounas
ranged m price from S5 75 to S6 40.
The run of hogs all the week has been un
usually light, and prices havo steadily ad
vanced on all but heavy weights. Those
weighing from 150 to 200 bring from 20c to 25c
more per 100 Its at Liberty than those above
that figure. At the yards to-day stock was so
well cleaned up that one dealer said there were
"more buyers than hogs in the pens." The
run at Chicago to-day was 22,000, with prices
steady. The range there is Si 85 to $5 05.
Following is the report of the week's trans

THE COUNTRY ROADS.
Their Economical Construction Be
coming the Leading Issue.
POINTS OfrTHE BEST MATERIAL.
A Good Day at the Stock Exchange, With
Dnusuallj Heavy Dealings.
PETK0LEUM SHOWS A BULLISH TEMPER
The best and most economical way of
making roads is a matter that is agitating
the public in portions of the East End
more particularly Brushton, "Wilkinsburg
and Edgewood, though other sections are
not oblivious to the importance of the in
quiry in its economic and commercial as
pects. Two gentlemen, one of whom lives
iu "Wilkinsburg and the other in Edgewood,
met in a down-town insurance office yester
day evening and discussed the subject at
considerable length, with a view to reach
ing a conclusion which would be applicable
to their respective localities. Yarious opin
ions, as is usual -in such cases, were set forth
but nothing was decided upon. As the
subject is of general interest the leading points
of the discussion are reproduced.
The cheapest material, both of the gentlemen
agreed, was cinder. The principal objection to
this material was that it lacked durability.
Heavy hauling soon ground it to dust and so
identified it with the native element upon
which it rested as to be with difficulty distin
guished from it. It did fairly well on a hard
bottom, but it required constant additions to
keep it in passable condition. Said the Wilk
insburg man: "Wo have cinder roads, and
have had them for 10 years or more. They are
not satisfactory. They cost us over $1,000 a
year, and are never finished." The experience
of Edgewood's representative was scarcely less
favorable, hut the citizens of that embryonic
borough had less experimental knowledge of
the characteristics of the material. Said he:
"We are flying rather hieh just now. Our
roads have cost about $5,000, and only about
$700 of this sum has been raised by taxation.
It is clear that cinder is better than nothing,
but I don't think it is adapted to localities that
want their roads to presentahandsome appear
ance as well as to be serviceable. I am in favor
of something that requires no further atten
tion after it is down."
Concrete was suggested. This, it was agreed,
made a good road, but it had some drawbacks.
The surface becomes very slippery in winter,
and when there are steep grades as
on portions of Forbes street teams have great
difficulty to get along. It is easily repaired,
however, which is a point in its favor.
"Do you know?" interposed the Edgewood
man, "that they are talking of repaying Penn
avenue next summer! I have heard that they
will use concrete."
A gentleman who had been listening to the
conversation suggested Ligonler block stone.
It would cost more than concrete,but possessed
elements of durability second to no other ma
terial. It was ruled out as too costly for the
country districts. Sand was next mentioned.
It makes a good road and is not much more ex
pensive than cinder, but it is difficult to obtain
it in sufficient quantities. At remote points
from railroads and rircrs it would cost as much
One of the gentlemen who has lived in New
England, remarked that they sometimes used
wood shavings for roads in that part of the
country. They do very well on dry, sandy soil,
but would prove a dismal failure in a muddy
region like Allegheny county.
The Dispatch representative suggested
that nothing had been said, abont corduroy
roads. These are made of huge logs placed
side by side, leaving, as may well be imagined,
a very rough surface.
This diversion called out a reminiscence from
the Edgewood gentleman: "I know as much
about corduroy roads as I want to," said lie. "I
have traveled over them in Southern Indiana,
where there are miles upon miles of them.
Next to the ague, they are'tlftP'&eBtefei shak
ers that I know of. Dutifi5? fPta'gefcdach ride
from Evansville to Terre Haute a few years
ago I passed over about ten miles of corduroy,
and I thought every bone in my body would
be broken. It jolted the coach to pieces, caus
ing us to wait for several hours while a black
smith made the necessary repairs. I don't
think this style of road would suit our people."

And No material Change Expected Before
the Middle of February.
There was no noteworthy chance in the local
money market yesterday. "We do not expect
much improvement before the middle of Feb
ruary," was the remark at several of the banks.
Checking was in excess of depositing, though
no large sums were drawn out. Rates were
steady at former quotations. Clearing House
business reflected the general apathy, the ex
changes dropping to $1,687,015 21 and the bal
ances to $238,889 02.

IN BETTER SHAPE.
A Field Day lor the Ball at the Oil
There was more vim at the Oil Exchange yes
terday than had been witnessed there for sev
eral days. The market opened at 85ic at
which the first sale was made. The bears then
began to thrash over their old straw, bnt were
routed horse, foot and dragoon, the bulls
forcing an advance to86ic Again the bears
came to the front and pulled the figures down
to 855, but they reacted almost immediately to
86Jc, at which they stood at the close, being
within an He of the top price ot the day. The
trading was almost entirely by professionals,
and no large blocks changed hands.
The expectation of a bullish field report to
morrow contributed more than anything else
to strengthen the market. It was freely pre
dicted that it would show a material curtail
raerrbcf production during the month.'' Carry
ing rates were 80 to S3 all round the latter tot

A BIG SPECULATION.
Ten Thousand Dollnm Made na Easy am
Rolling OfT a Log.
There was the usual jam at the real estate
offices yesterday. House hunters were out in
force. It begins to look as if a large part of
the population intended to flit next April.
The most Important transaction of the day,
so far as reported, was effected by W. A. Her
ron fc Sons, who closed tne sale of a lot on Dia
mond street, 60x120 feet, with old buildings, for
$40,000. Before the papers passed and during
the examination of the title, the purchasers
resold the property at an advance of nearly
Black & Baird, No. 95 Fourth avenue, sold to
C. &F. Kumm. for J. G. Helm, two brick
dwelling. No. 42 Avery street, Allegheny City,
with lot 25Kx82 feet, for $6,120 cash.
Samuel W. Black fc Co., D9 Fourth avenue,
sold for Jacob Lang, a lot 50x181 feet, on Wall
mgford street, .Nineteenth ward, for $2,350.
This street is being graded, and there is an ac
tive demand for lots in this desirable plan.
James W. Drape & Co. placed two mortgages
of $3,000 each on property in the suburbs and in
McKeesport, at 6 per cent. They also placed a
loan of $2,000 at 6 per cent on a house and lot on

ALL MOYED UP.
The South Pcnn Deal Gives the Tnnderbllt
Stocks a. Boost Coaler and Gran-
gcra Sluggish The Entire
Active Llic Higher.
New Yore, January 3L The stock market
to-day was feverish and unsettled in the fore
noon, but became more active and decidedly
strong later in the day. Everything traded In
was moved up more or less, while the market
broadened out perceptibly. The report that
the South Pennsylvania was finally dead gave
an impetus to the Vanderbilt stocks, and all of
them were in better demand and became
strong. Ontario and Western, into which the
Vanderbilts have recently purchased and which
proposes to extend to the coal fields, was taken
in hand and became one of the leaders in the
speculation, also showing a marked improve
ment in its quotation. There were stones of a
Western connection for the Richmond and
West Point with the Missouri Pacific and the
Iron Mountain, and that stock was one of the
first to show the results of the increased de-.
maud and the advance, of the morning hours
was well held into the afternoon, when it was
overshadowed by other stocks.
The grangers, notwithstanding the improve
ment in the situation in the West, and the coal
ers were quite sluggish to-day, but no weakness
was shown except lora short period in Lacka
wanna and Delaware and Hudson. New Eng
land failed to continue Its movement of the
pa st few days and fluctuated within the narrow
est limits, with no change at the close. Special
ties were again prominent for the advances
made. Big Four crossed par for the first time
in the history of the company. Rome, Water
ton n and Ogdensburg, however, could not hold
the advance of the last two days, and retired 2
per cent, after opening up a fraction. London
was a buyer to a limited extent, but the great
demand was from the commission houses. The
bullish feeling becoming very pronounced in
the forenoon, there was considerable covering
of shorts, which added to the prevailing
First prices were generally higher, bnt some
what irregular, and there was a moderate but
well-distributed business with a generally firm
tone, though some fever was apparent during
the forenoon. The general list drifted into
dullness toward noon, however, and some
weakness became apparent in the coal stocks,
and this state of affairs lasted until well into
the afternoon, when Ontario and Western be
came prominent for both activity and strength,
and Big Four, Evansville and Terre Haute and
some others followed with marked advances.
After 1 P. ii. the entire list felt tlfe stimulus,
and more strength was shown. The best prices
of the day were generally reached in the last
hour, and the market finally closed active and
strong at about the best figures. The entire
activo list, with a few unimportant exceptions,
is higher this evening.
The animation in the railroad bond list
showed no signs of abatement to-day, and the
dealings extended to an unusually large num
ber of issues. The Reading issues still main
tained the first position in the market, bnt they
were fairly rivaled to-day by the Fort Worth
and Denver firsts and the Chesapeake and Ohio
issues. Some very marked ad varices were
made over the whole list, although the strong
tone was not so universal, and a few bonds
show .losses to-night. The transactions were
$3,325,000, of which Reading firsts furnished
$299,000, the fours $210,000. the Chesapeake and
Ohio fours $272,000 and the Fort Worth and
Denver firsts $175,000. The Kansas and Texas
sixes rose 1. to 53?S: the fives iK, to 54K. and
the sevens IK, to 92K.
