THE PITTSBT3HG DISPATCH. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY IT. 1889.
: A BUSINESS SURTEY.
The Salient Features of Local Trade
During the Past Week.
MOXEY GOING OUT FIFTH AVENUE.
A Leading Banker Announces a Radical
Departure in Interest Charges-
THE DOLLAK OIL HEX GET A BLACK EIE
Local business the past weefc was only
moderately active. The principal event
was an effort on the part of the bulls in oil
to reach the dollar line, but they failed, the
highest point reached being 9. on Friday.
Yesterday the bears got in their work, and
dragged the price down to 91 at the opening
and 89Jf at the close. The contest between
the opposing elements was sharp and excit
ing and neither would admit defeat. The
market left off in good shape ibr a renewal
ofthefitjht. Stocks were without special
feature. Electric was higher at the close and
Philadelphia Gas weaker. Changes
In other local securities were of trifling im
portance. Heal eslatc dealers and agents had
their hands full of business all week, and made
a large number of sales of small properties.
They reported some large deals under way. but
withheld particulars. This branch of business
led all others in point of activity. Money was
plentj and easy at the usual rates. The best
borrowers wero od men. There was no im
provement in the iron market, but manufac
turers expressed confidence that trade would
pick up in a short time. They were not dis
posed to cut prices to effect sales.
Capitalists are always'oa the lookout for'se
cure and profitable investments. Just now
they seem to give real estate the preference.
Having bought up about all the available prop
erty on Penn avenue. Liberty and other streets,
they are turning their attention to Fifth ave
nue, above the Court Houe, where several im
portant deals have been made within the past
few weeks. Concerning this movement a real
estate dealer said yesterday: "These men are
wise, lldon't know of a better held for invest
ment. True, it is limited, but there a:e many
opportunities there for making large profits.
Houses and lots in that part of town that now
sell for 5,000 or $10,000 mil, id my judgment,
bo worth $15,000 cr $jy,000 in ten years. I know
ol seral recent transactions there that will
prove a bonanza to the imestors. One long
headed capitalist of my acquaintance has
placed a great deal of money in that part of
town within a short time."
"Has the talk of removing the hump any
thing to do with the boom out there?"
"The removal of the hump would certainly
enhance the value of property above the Court
House, but the investments I speak of were
not made in anticipation of such action. It is
a desirable part of the cit getting better
every year and values there rnu increase,
hump or no hump. It has been under the ban
,so long that property is comparatively cheap.
Capitalists are beginning to see this, and are
striking while the iron is hat."
"Have you had any applications for loans to
day?" was asked of a Fourth streot banker yes
"Very few," be replied. "The weather is too
bad for people to turn out"
"Have you an established rate of interest
from which you never deviate, or do you make
exceptions according to the nature of the col
lateral the better the security the lower the
"Six per cent legal interest is the only rate
we have never more and never less. I don't
believe in variable rates. It's not the way to
do business. hen we have plenty of money
we keep it until we get our terms; when we
run short, which seldom happens, we distribute
it around at the same invariable rate. This is
the'oue-pnee system, which is becoming very
popular in other branches of business. I find
it pays in the long run."
"There has been considerable money loaned
lately at 5 per cent,"
"1 know it, but I think it's bad policy. On
Its face it seems to be in favor of the borrower,
but really it is not. For Instance, a man bor
rows $10,000 to-day for fonr months at 5 or 4J4
per cent. Fay day comes around and he finds
he has no money to meet the obligation. He
goes to the bank and asks for a renewal of the
note. The banker says: 'Certainly, tir, I will
renew our note, but I cin't do it on the same
terms. Money is scarce and higher. I will
have to charge jouS percent.' In this way he
gets more than legal interest for his money.
When a maa borrows from us he has full
assurance that be can renew at the original
He added another objection to cheap money
that it was the parent of extravagance and
frequently was the cause of financial disaster.
The statement that the bank in question never
deviates from its established rate of interest
that the rate is as unchangeable as a law of
the Medes and Persians will be a surprise to
most readers. It is certainly a wide departure
from a venerable custom.
A Homewood citizen, whose wagon stuck in
the mud yesterday morning, vented his wrath
in a fashion something like this: "I have lived
here for about ten years, and paid taxes during
all that time. What have we to show for this
money? Look at the roads. A goose would
mire in almost any of them. I suppose it wJU
take me two or three hours to get my wagon
on solid ground. This is a great loss of time.
If it happened only once in a long while I
wouldn't mind it so much, but it's a regular
thing out here. It's outrageous. We would do
better out of the city, for then we could help
ourselves. When candidates come around to
solicit our rotes they make all sorts of
promises that the roads shall be repaired, that
we shall have ample police protection and
everything else we want but when the elec
tion is o er they go back on their word, and we
bear no more about the improvements until the
time for the next election comes around. We
have spotted some of those fellows and they
may hear from us sometime."
Having unburdened his mind, be started off
in quest of help to get his wagon on terra
Anna. The picture he drew of the condition of
the roads is strictly true.
Electric Wind Up ike Week Stronger and
Fhllodrlplila Gn Weaker.
The stock market was fairly active yesterday,
and it closed with a firm feeling in most of tne
shares traded in, and without much change in
prices from Friday. Westmghouse Electric

Traetiou was also" a trifle stronger, at 23JJ bid.
Union Switch and Signal was steady, at IS bid

most promising low-priced stock on the market.
It has a substantial backing. The only stocks
that Ehowed special n eakness were Philadel

lower. La Nona was barely steady. A raid
was made on bank stocks, but none of them

MONEY'S ALL EIGHT,
But a Better Borrowing Demand Would
Tlckl- tbo Bankers.
The local money market yesterday presented
the fame general features as on the previous
days of the week, with the exception, perhaps,
that counter buinesswas less active on ac
count of the rain. Call loans continue to be
quoted at 5g6, and time paper at 67. There
w ere very few applications for discounts. Bank
ers expect to find full employment for their
I idle funds a soon as the spring trade fairly
opens. The Clearing House report for the day

THE BEARS WIN.
Persistent Hammering Makes Dollar
Boomers Feel Very Blue.
The short session at the Oil Exchange yester
day was characterized by activity and excite
ment, the closing scenes being of a very ani
mated description. The bears forced the fight
ing from the start, and hammered the price
down from 91 at the opening to 89 at the
close. There was heavy selling both here and
at Oil City, the latter being credited with caus
ing the break. "There is no change in the
general situation," said a broker yesterday
evening. "Everything continues bullish. The
slump to-day as caused by the longs. They
couldn't resist the temptation to unload, and
some of them made a good thing out of it The
market is not broken; it is only crippled. It
will be on its feet again next week." The
fluctuation in prices during the week are

Interesting Statistics Prom Trnde Reports
of the Past Tear.
Ihe final statistics of foreign commerce for
the calendar ear 18S8 have just been issued,
and disclose some interesting features. For
instace, the decrease in imports of steel rails
was 77,000 tons, or more than half; in pig iron
271,000 tons, again more than half; in iron ore
603,000 tons, or more than half; in steel ingots
463,000,000 pounds, or about two-thirds, and in
wire rods 106,000.000 pounds, or one-third. Nev
ertheless there was an increase of 19.000,000
pounds in imports of cotton ties, and 32,000,000
pounds in imports of tin plates, which tends
strongly to sustain the claim that in respect to
these articles the existing tariff is unjust to
borne producers, since these can be heavily im
ported even when the materials from which
they are made aro to a large extent excluded.
Another feature of importance is thatimports
of wool were larger in quantity but lower in
value, particularly in the carpet class, while
the imports of woolen goods increased over 10
per cent, or $4,900,000, ana principally In the
miscellaneous articles not specially enumer
ated, many of which evade the specific duties.
In this branch also it is evident that the duties
do not serve their object, and prove ineffective
to prevent iraudulent imports of other classes
of wool as being for carpet use. and imports of
many kinds of woolen goods through evasion
of duties which are permitted by the law or by
The imports of raw materials for manufac
ture wero generally large. Those of flax and
substitutes increased 41.000 tons, or one
quarter: of copper ore 1,300.(00 pounds, and of
coal 263,000 tons, or one-third; of raw silk the
import; increased 671,000 pounds, or more than
one-sixth. HuUii Eome other articles there
was but little increase, as in soda ash; or a
large loss, as In saltpeter, 2,400,000 pnunds.more
than a quarter: or in glvcerme, 0.000,000 pounds,
nearly one-half. In fancy articles there was a
decrease, and in silks, uines, spirits and most
other luxuries, but small increase, if any, so
tlfat on the whole the imports of manufactured
products In the ordinary sense must have de
creased, while the imports ot materials some
The Imports of food were, on the whole,
somewhat larger, sugar increasing 10,000,000
pounds, and freh fish (exclusive of salmon)
increasing 15,000,000 pounds. The imports of
free fruits also increased, butof dutiable fruits
there was a coi.siderable decrease. In barley
a decrease of 1,700.000 bushels appeared, and
the imports ot coffee were largely increased In
quantity, about one-quarter, but the price was
so much lower than in the preceding j ear that
the increase In value was small. A decrease
appears in the quantity of egg imported, but
a considerable increase in potatoes; the im
ports of hops Declined 4,000.000 pounds, or
about one-half, but in nee there was an in
crease of 86,000,000, or more than SO per cent
Stocks Raided The Grangers Stand Firm
Heavy Selling Orders Failure of a
Bis: Bear Railroad Bonds Ac
tivo Closing; Gener
New York, February 16. The stock market
was somewhat irregular to-day, but on the
whole displayed a strong tone with a fair vol
ume of business, although most of the list was
slightly lower at the close in consequence of
the bear raid. There was a very confident feel
ing this morning, but there was an attempt
made to get the Grangers down again by
means ot manipulation from London, houses
with European connections being the heaviest
sellers, while St. Paul, at which the drive was
specially made, was much loner in that mar
ket Inquiry from this side, however, elicited
tbo information that the selling orders oriel-
nated from this side, and the impression made
upon prices was entirely insignificant The
adices from the West were reassuring.
At the Stock Exchange the suspension of a
noted bear trader was announced and about
10,000 shares of stock were bought in under the
rule for his account The general list showed
great resistance to the efforts to get prices
own and rallied handsomely from the lowest
figures when the pressure was removed, while
Erie was conspicuous for both activity and
strength and led the upward movement in
prices and the entire list in point of animation.
A majority of the active tdiares are fractionally
lower than last evening, but the only marked
chance was in Erie, which is up 1 per cent
The railroad bond market was active, the
sales aggregating $1,541,000, out of which Chi
cago, Burlington and Qutncy fives contributed
8218,000 and the Louisville. New Albany and
Chicago consols $108,000. The trading in the
last mentioned bonds was the feature of the
day, and tbey were specially strong, rising 2
per cent to 10L Tho sales of bonds for the
week aggregated $10,629,000, against $14,821,000
for last week.

stocks on the New York Stock Exchanee.

I am so very small a thing,"
It seems quite stranee to say
In life how great a part I take,
And bow the worid 1 sway.
In all affairs I take a part,
Of politics or State;
In quarrels I am always there.
Be they 'mongst small or great
In tenderest message, sweetest verse,
In foulest, scandalous tale;
In parent's blessing, widow's curse,
Or orphan's piteous wall.
In prayer or praise, my power's confessed;
In opera or play.
In giddy throng or holy desk,
I always have my say.
A little spark, I cause, Indeed,
A mighty fire to rise;
A little member, but I drive.
Where'er I list, the wise.

A GENUINE GEMUNDER TDBNS UP.
After a Disappearance of Several Tears an
Ole Ball Violin Is Fonnd.
tSFEClAI. TILEORjLK TO THE DISFATCH.l
New York, February 16. Quite a stir
was created recently among violin con
noisseurs by the discovery of an old George
Gemunder violin, the whereabouts of which
had been unknown or lost sight
of for many years. The instrument
was discovered among the effects
of a professional musician of this city, who
died several years ago, and whose widow has
since carelully guarded the violin as her
most precious possession. Need of money,
however, at lat forced her to part with it,
and it is now the property of Mr. Charles
H. Lellman, Jr., of this city.
This violin is undoubtedly one ofthe
finest creations of that ereat master. Georse
kGemunder, and dates from the year 1859,
when he was at the height of his pow
ers. The violin has quite an inter
esting history. Beams from the old
Dutch church on lower Broadway
furnished the wood of which it was fash
ioned. In passing it might be remarked
that this church was the first to be erected
by the Dutch on Manhattan Island; the
wood of the violin is, there
fore, nearly 200 years old. The
violin wns presented by Mr. Gemunder
to Mr. Eckbardt, a well-known musician
and conductor of Columbus, O. It was
while in the possession of Sir. Eckhardt
that Ole Bull saw it. He liked it so well
that he used it at several of his concerts.
The violin remained in the possession of
Eckhardt until 1878,when Wilhelmj, fascin
ated by its wonderful beauty of tone, pre
vailed upon the Colurobns impresario to
exchange the same for his (Wilhelmj's) in
struments. Later Wilhelmj sold the
violin to an amateur, at a big price. At
this point all traces of the violin were lost
until last week, when, by an accident, it
fell into Mr. Lellraann's hands.

faintness and capricious appetite are alsj
caused by this very widespread and growing
disease. Hood's Sarsaparilla tones the stomach,
creates an appetite, promotes healthy digestion,
relieves headache, and cures the most obstinate
cr.ses of dyspepsia. Read the following:
"I have been troubled with dyspepsia. I had
but little appetite, and whatl did eat distressed
me, or did me little good. In an hour after eat
ing I would experience a faintness or tired, all
gone feeling, as though I bad not eaten any
thing. Hood's Sarsaparilla did me an immense
amount of good. It gave me an appetite, and
my food relished and satisfied the craving I
had previously experienced. It relieved me of
that faint tired all-gone feeling. I have felt
so much better since I took Hood's Sarsaparilla
that I am happy to recommend it" G. A.
