Butchers Fare Belter Than Drovers or
Stock Misers.
Hojs, Too, Tending Downward Sheep and
Lambs on Reflection
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch,
Wednesday, February 13, 1SS9. J
The run of cattle on Monday was 63 loads,
ajrainstSS for the two previous Mondays.
About seven loads have been received since
Monday, making a total of 70 head for the
local trade this week. In the receipts were
eight to ten loads of good to prime stock,
weighm;; from 1,100 to 1,600 pounds, but no
ejtra primes showed up in the entire lot.
Heavy cattlo were 1015c below prices of
last week. The ranse of prices for the heavy
weights was S3 75! 35. Said an old-time
dealer. "Heavy cattle have not sold as low
since 1S62 as they did this week, A fair qual
ity of fat, coarse beeves weighing 1,00 pounds
were soldat3JJc, a price below anything since
the war." All butcher grades weighing from
1,100 to L400 pounds, held up to last week's
prices, but no more The proportion of low
grade cattle in supplies was smaller that" usual.
It is evident, from low prices of cattle, that
butchers must be having a harvest time if
their trade is extensive. While retail prices of
meat change not, cattle are lully oif Si per hun
dred from nrices of a month or two ago. A lead
ing stockman says that export cattle are $1 50 a
hundred below w hat they were six months ago,
which make a difference of S22 to $25 a head.
At Liverpool prices of roeatare reported steady
at the figures of six months ago. If there was
a living profit then, there must be big profit
now with a gain of S3 on a single beeve.
"While butchers are comfortable over the
situation, drovers and commission men do not
find it so comfortable. The cattle trade has
rot for many years been so unsatisfactory as it
is at-tbe present time. Butchers are able to fix
their own prices. With a drop of 20 carloads in
receipts, prices would in ordinary times stiffen
up, but reports from all cattle dealers show
drooping markets and a mean trade for this
Receipts .at Chicago to-day were 2,000 head,
with markets steady on a range of 1 401 90.
To-day is the first time since Saturday that the
downward drilt has been arrested.
At East Liberty markets are quiet with 4 TO
gl SO as the range for heavy weights. Medi
ums are So 00 and lightweight Yorkers lrom
$5 105 15. The demand at Libertv this week
has been about equal to supply. Heavy hogs
continue to be the heavy article of markets. A
nearby farmer who brings to market such as
weirh from 400 to 500 pounds, will find trouble
realizing above Vic for his stock. This price
was accepted last week, and the situation has
cot improved in the meantime.
Sheep and Lnnibs.
With receipts about a half dozen car loads
less than last week, markets held up well with
last week's prices, Monday and Tuesday. To
day, on unfavorable, news from Xew York,
markets show downward tendencies, and prices
are 10c below those which ruled on Monday.
About ten carloads are still on hand, and
holders will be forced to come down a shade
from the ideas held at the beginning of the
week. A few loads were held lrom Monday to
await news from New York. The news failed
to furnish the comfort hoped for. Soma
shippers of sheep and lambs will be forced to
charge up something to the loss account on
this week's deals.
!UcCnll & Co.'s Report.
E. McCall & Co.'s weekly review is as fellows:
The receipts of cattle were light and market
slow at an advance of 10c to 15c per cwt over
last week's prices. We cannot offer anything
encouraging in the cattlo trade for the future,
as there arc a great many cattle to run yet, and
the still houses are f nil of cattle that must he
marketed before the hot weather tcts in. The
only thing that caused an advance this week
was the light run. We give tho following as
ruling prices for the week: Prime. 1.300 to 1.600
ponnds. $4 30f 50; good, L200 to M00 pounds,
$3 C5g4 25; good, L0U0 to L200 pounds. $3 60

The receipts of sheep on Monaay were heavy,
and the maiket steady at about last week's
prices. To-day's receipts were fair, hut fully
equal to the demand, and selling 1015 per cent
lower than Monday on all grades except prime.

Western Railroad Conld Not Stand the
Steamship Competition.
The freight rates from this city to Houston
and Galveston, Tex., have been reduced.
The following are the new rates, which were
put in effect on the 10th inst:
First class, 1 50; second class, 1 25: third
class, 1 05: fourth class, .SG; fifth class, .73;
class A-, .76: class B., .70; class O, .64; class D.-.
.58; class E., .5a
These rates will he subject to the "West
ern classification adjusted to Texas business.
The reduction amounts to about 10 per cent
oil the old rates, which were put into effect
January 20. It was lound necessary to 're
duce them again owing to' the competition
or the steamships .plying between If ew York
and Galveston. A number of Pittsburg
manufacturers were shipping stuff to New
York by rail and theij by ship to Galveston
at a cheaper rate than they could get from
the railroads running west from this city.
In order to get their share of the business
' they had to restore the old rates.

Heavy Selling and n Snow Storm Break the
Wheat Market Corn andOntsBnrely

a Triflo Lower.
Chicago There was active trading in wheat
during the first half of the session at irregular
and lower prices. The market was quieter dur
ing the latter part and steadier. The opening
was weaker, but sold afterward c above yes
terday's closing. .Then followed numerous
fluctuations within lc range for May, after
which prices broke off heavily to a point 2c
below early outside figures, recovered lc of the
decline and finally closed lc lower.
Tbe decline was attributed to free realizing
by some large traders, and as many operators
were long on the market they also fell in line
and commenced to sell. There was some selling
on foreign account, partly long and some short
wheat Therewasnothingspeciallyinthe out
side news to give encouragement to holders.
All markets ruled lower. The snow 6torm was
naturally a weakening factor.
Corn was rather quiet moist of the session,
trading being somewhat limited and trans
actions confined largely to local operators. The
market was quotably steady, and fluctuations
did not vary much from yesterday, being con
fined within Jo range.
A moderate business was done in oats, but
no new or important features were developed.
Quite an active trade was reported in mejs
pork, but the market was rather weak during
the greater portion of the day. Opening sales
were made at 5c decline, which was quickly
followed by a further reduction of 10c Rather
free buying tended to strengthen the market,
and prices rallied 10c, but increased offerings
later, partly on outside account, caused a weak
er feeling, and prices gradually declined 25
27cc. Toward tho close tho market ruled
steadier, and prices rallied 57c and closed
Lard was in fair demand and easier, with
prices ruling TJjQlCc, closing at about medium
There was more pressure to sell ribs, and the
market ruled weak and unsettled. Prices de
clined 1012c, closing steady at medium

Stock Dealers Let Electric Go and Pay
Attention to Philadelphia Gas.
The life of the average banker is not one
ot unalloyed pleasure. He has to guard
the interests of the institution of which he
has charge by ceaseless integrity, lest, by
clerical errors or by reposing confidence in
unworthy persons, losses be sustained which
would cripple the bank or weaken its credit
with the public Honey is a delicate com
modity. It may be correctly classed with
articles denominated perishable. It is af
fected by every influence that permeates so
ciety, whether political or social. Its fluc
tuations afford a gbod measurement of the
condition of the country. In times of agita
tion, or when important changes of
public policy are imminent, it
takes alarm, and, in the language
of the stock board, rushes to cover. Ease
and abundance may be accepted without
hesitation as infallible proof that the com
mercial skies are clear and that there is no
occasion for flying storm signals. These re
flections are the outgrowth of a conversation
between The Dispatch representative and a
prominent Wood street merchant yesterday.
Continuing he said:
f regard confidence between man and man
the backbone of business. Without it nothing
can be done. As society is constituted almost
everything is taken on trust. A man with a
reputation for truth and honor has a great ad
vantage over one whose record in these re
spects will not bear investigation. In discount
ing paper or buying mortgages, we employ
every legal method known to us to fix the
standing of the man and to establish a good
title to the property, but these researches are
far less exhaustive in the cases of men of es
tablished character for reliability than in those
where we have reason to believe advantage
would be taken of ns if tbe opportunity arose.
I know scores of men to whom I would loan
money without security. Their word is as good
as a bond, and when security is required of
him it is merely to guard against accidents,and
to conform to the rules of business. Such men
can always get all the money they want, for, in
addition to being honest, they are careful in
vestors." "How do Pittsburg business men as a class
compare with those of other cities?"
"They are equal to any in all the qualities
essential to success. Tneir judgment in mat
ters with which they are fami'tar in their own
line of busiuess is seldom disputed. Iron
manufacturers East and West very often con
sult men in tbe same business hero before tak
ing any important steps. It is the same with
opr finances. 1 havo known of several of them
being called to Washington to consult with the
head of the Treasury Department 'In ability
and integrity we do not fear comparisons."
Philadelphia Gas Onco More the Feature of

Trading: at the Stock Exchange yesterday
was fairly active, all things considered, the
total sales amounting to 497 shares. The fea

Electric was slightly weaker at the first call,
and decidedly so at the last. Switch and Sig

The condition of the local money market yes
terday was in all material respects identical
with that of the preceding days of the week.
Checking and depositing were on a moderate
scale, and rates were steady at the usual fig.
ures. The Clearing House report made a good
showing, the exchanges being 2,097,590 62 and

Tbe Progress Oil Is Sinking Toward the
Dollar Line.
The oil market opened yesterday with a bull
ish tendency and good- trading. The effort to
reach the 51 line was unsuccessful. The first
quotation was 89c, sold off to 8Sf;c recovered
and gradually advanced to 90c, with a sale of
1.000 barrels at that price. The market then
slumped off and sold at 8S, at which it hung
for some time, and finally closed with a nervous
feeling as to tbe outcome. There was consid
erable general trading during the day, both
East and West, but no large Talocks changed
hands. In giving his views on the situation an
operator said: "The indications to my mind
am that there will be lower nrices to-morrow
.morning, with a recovery later in tbe day, but
we will not sea 51 oil just yet"

There was no specjal movement in the real

"There is not much time left between now and
April, and those wanting to buy or rent bad
better hurry up. It is my opinion the demand
will be so great about moving time that prices
will be advanced. They are always regulated
by the demand."

The Grnncern Still the Weak Spot Other
Shares Show Advnuces Big Four to the
Front An Upward Movement
Bonds Weakening.
New York, February 13. The stock market
was a divided one to-day, and while in some
cases the best figures of the past week were
reached. In others the lowest prices known for
years wero established. The general tendency
of prices was upward, but the Grangers were
still the disturbing factor in tbe situation, and
the weakness displayed in those cases gave the
rest of the list a rather feverish appearance,
and tbe final changes are irregular. The mar
ket, however, gavo unmistakable evidence of a
disposition to break away from the Grangers
entirely, and outside of those stocks and a few
specialties which have made unusually large
gains, there were no declines to speak of, and
the decided advances were quite numerous.
The announcement late last evening that
Illinois Central had signed the agreement was
contradicted this morning, and bearish dis
patches from Chicago were again predicting the
collapse ot tho Inter-State Association, and
there was renewed liquidation in tbe Grangers
with Illinois Central, Burlington. Rock Island
and Omahapreferred, he.came very conspicuous
for the decltncs established, all reaching the
lowest prices for a long time. The other Gran
gers, St. Paul, Norths estern and some others
wero comparatively well held and came out at
the end of the day about even with last night's
figures. The weakness in stocks mentioned
had a marked influence for a time upon the
rest of the list, but they soon broke away and
for the remainder of the day they were strong
all the way out.
First prices were irregular, but in most cases
loer, declines extending to -per cent. The
weakness in the Grangers appeared Immedi
ately, and Burlington took the lead with a drop
of over a point. At noon most shares were a
shade below opening figures. Comparative
dullness overspread the list in the forenoon,
but Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and In
dianapolis and Big Four came to the front, and
as tho d3y wore along the upward movement
became more pronounced and more animation
marked the trading. The market finally closed
active and strong generally, at small fractions
better tban first figures. Pullman is off 214,
Burlington 1 and Rock Island . but Wheel
ing and Lake Erie preferred gained and
Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Indian
apolis also gained IK-
The railroad bond market was again compar
atively quiet, the sales of all issues to-day ag
gregating onl v 51,933,000, burtiut of this amount
Atlantic and Pacific fours contributed 5173.000
and the International sixes 5101,000. The weak
ness in the latter bonds was the special feature
of the day, but the general list was also in
clined to droop, and the final changes show a
majority of important declines tor the first
time since the first of the year.

stocks on tbe New York Stock Exchange.

A Railway Plant In Germany.
It it stated that the demand for railway plant
will be unusually large in Germany this year,
and tho Central Board of tha Prussian.Govern
ment railways will shortly make contracts for
7,000 trucks and carriages, 400 locomotives and
800 luggage vans. It may be observed that be
tween 1880 and 1887 the number .of carriages
and tracks on the lines in question increased
by 86 per cent and the traffic by 120 per cent,
and it is supposed that fully 40,000,OU) marks
will be required in order to" meet the present
requirements of the railway traffic in Germany.
It is estimated that this year's production of
pig Iron in Germany will exceed that of last
year's by about 400,000 tons.
Scrap Iron Trade In France.
Bayers and sellers of old rails and scrap iron
have lately had some good openings in France.
The French Eastern Railway Company offered.
14,500 tons of old rails for sale, the bulk of
which was purchased by the Creusot, Chetil
lon, Champiguenlles and Maubeuge works.
Tbe prices ranged from 72 to 83 francs. Tbe
fall in the price of old rails has led to the Vi
lette Works near Paris being closed, and it is
said that the Crenelle Mills have laid in a suf
ficient stock for IS months. It is evident, how
ever, that for the present the supply of old
rails exceeds the demand, and that their price
is likely to weaken still further.
A New Use for Soda IteMdnnm.
M. Viveuot Lamy, who is well known in
French manufacturing circles, has just taken
out a patent for utilizing soda residuum as a'
flux and purifying medium in the manufacture
of pig Iron. The "proportion employed varies
according as tbe ore is calcareous, silicions, or
otherwise. This residuum can be charged from
the top of the furnace with the ore, and may
be mixed with other substances, especially
sawdust and coal dnst, and formed into balls or
cakes in order to obtain greater consistency.

Green coffee has advanced He since Monday
in New York, and markets are very firm. Javas
.are scarcer tban they have been for the past ten
years. Stocks are unusually low in all fine
grades of coffee. Packages are likely to ad
vance at an early day, as they have been for
some time t relatively below tbe price of the
green article. There is also a stiffening in
prices of tea tbe past week. One jobber claims
that gunpowder and imperial teas havo ad
vanced 2c the past week. A New York firm
has lately purchased 55,000 packages of tea at a
cose of over 500,000. The feeling is general
among jobbers that tea has been selling below
its real value for the past few months, and that
present firmness of prices rests on a legitimate
basis. The 55,000 packages which were gobbled
up by a New York firm at a half million would,
says an Eastern paper, have brought 54,000,000
during tbe war.

I am satisfied tu.ii Cancer nereditary in my
family. My father died of it. a sister of my
mother died of it, and my own sister died of it.
My feelings may be imagined, then, when the
horrible disease made its appearance on my
side. It was a malignant Cancer, eating in
wardly in such a way that it could not be cut
out. -Nnmerons remedies were used for it, but
the Cancer grew steadily worse, until itseemed
that I was doomed to follow the others of the
family. I took Swift's Specific, which, from
tbe first day, forced out the poison and con
tinued its use until I had taken several bottles,
wben I found myself well. 1 know that S. S. S.
cured me. Mrs. S. M. Idol.
