THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, "FRIDAY; FEBRUARY 22", 1889.
LOCAL LITE STOCK.
Leading Features of the Week's Trade
at Central Yards.
SITUATION AKD OUTLOOK SO GOOD.
Hojs Join "n'ith Cattle and Sheep in the
TIXXESSEE SENDS BACON KOETH
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch.
THURSDAY. February 21, 1SS9.
As will be seen by the accompanying
report, local cattle receipts this week were
220 head above last week. For the two
weeks previous to last, local cattle supplies
varied scarcely any in number from this week's
record. Truth demands the statement that the
markets are in a demoralized condition. It is'
hard to rind anything encouraging in the situ
ation or outlook.
The vcekl statement sent out by a leading
stock firm to customers begins: -".Markets are
demoralized, cattle are 15 to Mc lower: we have
no comments to make. Sheep are dull and
heavy, with uo good prospects lor trade." One
stockman was found at the Liberty jards who
picked up a lew crumbs of comfort from the
fact that markets are more depressed as jou
go eastward. From New York lue stock
markets comes the report to-day that 20,000
"head of sheep are unsold, with a lair invspect
that shippers will be lorced to submit to heavy
loss. While the ruu ot sheep at Liberty this
week is more than 3,003 head less than last
weet, and o.OOU le--s than the week before,
markets hae been very slow at Kc reduction.
The slowness ot tiadc here induced some deal
ers to send stock on to the metropolis, Such
hat e had a practical coufirmation of the old
adage that tells how we may co further and
faie worse. The dealer who sold at Liberty
did better this week than the one who sent his
sheep to Kew York.
Hogn Getting Cheap,
Yesterday's review of the live stock trade in
this column of The Dispatch stated that
hogs were the only exception to the downwaid
driit. This Mas true till this morning. Now
we are compelled to put porkers in the same
boat with cattle and sheep. At Cnicago to-dayire-ceipts
were 25,000 head and pnees luc lower. The
range of prices there for good smooth packing
hogs weighing from 170 to 190 Dounds is SI 85 to
At East Liberty the run of hogs this mora
ine was light, consisting of about 10 loads.
While some weakness was manifested at the
opening of trade this morning, it was the opin
ion of dealers that there ioild be no drop.
This hopeful view was, howccr, soon blasted,
and toward nocn hogs were sold at tl 85, which
would have brought So OOjesterday.
As an illustration of the demand for light
hogs this seaon in preference to heavy w eights,
one of onr leading packers furnishes the fol
lowing item: Thcie were shipped from Mem
phis, Tenn., to Chicago within the past 10 dajs
;M0 head of lio-s averaging 122 pounds, and
sold at $4 72.
The pack r. speaking of this, said: "It is
Fnuiething hitherto unheard of that Tennessee
should sendogs to Chicago. The icason is
that light hogs are bringing better prices at
the latter place Through the South tne de
mand is for heavy hogs, the fattest pork being
wanted for the cotton and suirar nlantations.
lu the North, owing to the abundance of corn, I
the heavy nog uusmess is overuoae. mere is
a scarcity of light hogs in our supplies this
season, and this has been so marked that it has
been lound proutahle to bring these little
porkers a dinar.ee of 600 miles northward."'
Following are tho f ull returns of transactions
at the East Liberty yai ds for the week.

Something for American Illnnnfncinrcrs to
It is a significant fact, says the Glasgow Mail,
that although there are many enterprising
Americans in Guatemala, they all complain
that they have to buy their goods in Europe be
cause American merchants are so careless in
packing that a large quantity of tLe goods re
ceived always arrives in a damaged condition.
In American canned goods the article is either
of inferior quality or else it is badly put up.
European houses must never forget that the
key to the situation is packing, and on tne
whole it is said that in this respect the Germans
There are certain lines of goods, especially in
prints and drilling;, which have grown into
preference hero, and the natives will have no
others. German manufacturers attempt to
lorce upon the market base imitations, hotonly
ot these goods, but a'.:" "f British and Ameri
can agricultural implements and cutlery goods.
Trade marks and designations are imitated by
ingenious alterations mteuded to convey a false
impression that they ars the genuine article.
The hest advice that we can give as regards
Guatemala is to send out a thoroughly good
orticle in any line at the lowest possible price,
anp see that it is properly packed.
New York. February 2L There was a
relatively fair trade in drygoods to-day, with
both agents and jobbers, though the stores
were all closed a part of the forenoon, during
the funeral services of the late Philip Van
Valkenburgh, one of tho most prominent com
mission merchants of this city. The market
was unchanged in character and tone.

of a Reported Rilzznrd Corn and
Oats Very Quiet Hog Prod-
nets Active and Stronger.
Chicago The wheat market was dull dur
ing most or the session today, and prices were
somewhat irregular. The opening was e
lower than closing figures yesterday, rallied
Jic, declined c, and then suddenly advanced
lJe'C cased off Ic and closed about He lower
than yesterday. There were moderate offerings
early in the day and but little demand, and
after fluctuating within a small range for some
little time suddenly advanced on covering by
shorts, which action was influenced some by re
ports of buying of wheat in Wisconsin by Min
neapolis millers and a reported blizzard in Da
kota Heading eastward. The shorts possibly
were also induced to cover, to some extent, on
account of the holiday to-morrow.
Cora was moderately active at times, though
mot of the session tho market ruled very
quiet. There was nothing new in consequence
developed that had any apparent effect on
values, and fluctuations were narrow, being
limited to c range.
Oats weie quiet, with trading of a local char
acter, and n.irrow price changes.
Rather more interest was manifested in hog
products, and the feeling was stronger in a
general way. Mess pork opened at 5c decline,
advanced logl'Kc, reacted 2K5c and closed
rather steady. Lard advanced 121jc bat
receded 2K5c; short ribs gained an advance of

A LOCAL HOLIDAY
Decidedly Worse Than None, So Far
as Business is Concerned.
FORGETFUL MEN PUT IN A HOLE.
The Bears Brace Up and Make a Grand Raid
on the Petroleum Market.
STOCKS CLOSE TERI DULL AND WEAK
To-day being a legal holiday in Pennsyl
vania, there will be no business at the banks
and exchanges. On this subject a promi
nent banker said yesterday:
"I have no objection to legal holidays.
Thiy afford opportunities for needed rest
and social communion, which are at other
times inconvenient or impossible. But to
be effective they should be general na'tional
instead of State so that all the people of
the country could enjoy their benefits.
Christmas, New Year's, Fourth of July and
Thanksgiving come under this head. They
are general and not local. I would not
abolish them if I could. I would rather en
large than decrease the number of them'.
But it is different with "Washington's Birth
day and Good Friday. They are local.
To-morrow will be a legal holiday in Penn'
sylvania, but not in Ohio, New York, West
Virginia or Maryland, States that surround us,
and with which we have large business trans
actions." "Does this work to the disadvantage of busi
ness!" Injustice of the Law.
"Decidedly so. The Pennsylvania law strikes
mainly at the banks and other financial institu
tions. Other business concerns go on as.usual
unless they voluntarily close. Tho drygoods
merchant, tho grocer, the butcher, the baker
and others are under no obligation to close up,
and they seldom do so. Frequently their sales
are larger on such a holiday as to-morrov
promises to be than on any other day of the
year, from the fact that the promised attrac
tions draw large crowds from the country,
who take advantage of the opportu
nity to make needful purchases.
And right here is where tho
inconvenience is felt. Many of these dealers
at the close of business find themselves in
possession of large sums of money that they
don't know what to do with. The banks being
closed they can't deposit it, and to keep it
abont them or leave it at home would be a
strong temptation to robbers. I know of an
instance that illustrates this point very clearly.
Last year, on the 22d. a railroad man found
himself in possession of nearly $3,000. His safe
was a small affair. It could have been opened
by an expert burglar in a few minutes. He
knew the banks were closed. The only way
out of the difficulty was to trust to his own un
safe safe and stay up all night to guard it, re
in forced by an extra watchman, armed to the
teeth. It was no holl day to him."
"Are there other objections to the day from
a business point of view?"
"There are. Two years ago a man in Butler
county bought a farm, payment for which was
to be made on the 22d of February, forgetting
that it was a legal holiday. The purchaser bad
considerable money on deposit in our bank.
He and the seller came to the city on the after
noon of the day the nayment was to be made.
Our porter admitted him to the bank, and the
case was stated to me. I said: 'Gentlemen, I
am sorry I can do nothing for you. The money
you warn is here but I can't get at it. The law
compels us to close np to-day. The time-lock
is set for 8 o'clock to-morrow, and the safe
can't be opened before that time." They were
compelled to remain in the city until next day
at some expense and considerable loss of time."
An Inter-Stnte Hitch.
"Being local, the law may have a bad effect
between citizens of different States Ohio and
Pennsylvania for instance?"
"Such is frequently the case. For instance
one Ohio merchant buys a bill of goods in New
York and for convenience to all parties makes
the note payable in Pittsburg February 22, not
knowing that the date named is a legal holiday
in this State. He comes here at the time indi
cated to find that his note was protested the
"I could recount other instances of the bad
effects of a local holiday law," he went on to
say, "but the above mentioned caes are suffi
cient to show the grounds of my opposition to
it from a busines point of view. Such laws, to
catry out their full intent and work hardship
to none, should be general."
These expressions of a level-beaded financier
add force to the sajing that there are always
two ways of looking at things.
AN OFF DAI.
Stock Brokers Afraid to Lond Up on a
The near approach of aholiday had adepress
ing effect upon the stock market jesterday,
most of the list being fractionally lower and
extremely dull. Central Traction led in activ
ity, contributing 205 of the 342 shares traded in.
The weakness was due more to the indisposition
of the brokers to take hold than to any radical
change in the general outlook.

They Think lb"! Signs Point to a Better
The money market yesterday was without
material change. Idle funds were too plentiful
to suit bankers, but they consoled themselves
in a measure by saying the indications prom
ised an increased borrowing demand in a short
time. They thought the business outlook fully
justified this belief. There was a drop in the
Clearing House report from the previous davs
of the week, but the figures were quite respect
able, the exchanges being $1,833,022 88 and the
balances $344,739 81
Money on call at New York yesterday was easy

dull but firm at 4 S&,i for CO-day bills, and

The Bears Make a Sncccssfal Raid on tbo
The oil market yesterday was quite bearish,
but the bulls fought every inch of ground, and
retreated only after all their defenses were
captured. There was heavy selling during the
day, causing much wonderment that nrices
held up so well under such heavy pressure.
The highest quotation was 91c, and the lowest
90c When the market touched the latter
point heavy buying in New York caused a slight
reaction, which held good for the remainder ot
the day, tho close being 90jjC a gain of He
from the opening. The bulk of the business
was done in the first and lasthonrs. The weak
ness was attributed to lack of outside support,
and not to any change in the general situation,
which, from all accounts, continues bullish.

New Y'orx, February 21. The stock market
was somewhat more active to-day, but the im
provement in the amount of business done was
bad at the expense of values, the bears again
having the making of prices, and the market
was weak and decliningthroughontmost of tho
day. The fact that there will only be two
hours of business between this evening and
Monday morning deterred many from making
purchases. The trading was, therefore, left
almost entirely to the trading element, though
the local and Chicago bears were quite ac.ive
in getting the list doun. The pressure was of
course quite heavy against the Grangers and
the Southwesterns, the belief in some quarters
that Mr. Gould has no confidence in the situa
tion leading to the selling of Missouri Pacific
and Atchison, while the Coal stocks again came
in for marked attention. Missouri Pacific
made the widest fluctuations and showed most
weakness, and at its lowest was 1 per cent off.
Among the other shares, howet er, the fluctua
tions were small and unimportant, though the
weakness extended to all parts of the list.
First prices were from l to per cent lower
than last evening's figures, and after further
losses, in which Missouri Pacific and Lacka
wanna were most conspicuous, there was a re
action which brought most stocks to about the
level of opening figures. The downward move
ment was soon resumed, however, and toward
noon there was mure animation and the weak
tone became more pronounced with the pres
sure heaviest against the Grangers and Coal
stocks, while the Gould shares were for a time
well held. Burlington, Rock Island,
St. Paul. Jersey Central and New
England became prominent for the
losses sustained, and the lowest prices wero
generally reached toward 2 p.m., alter which
there was a pronounced rally which reached
almost everything, and under the lead of
Burlington a fair proportion of the losses was
regained. The close was quiet but firm. The
entire active list is lower to-night, but the only
marked losses were Missouri Pacific 1, and
Denver, Texas and Fort Worth certificates
The weakness in shares extended also to the
dealings in railroad bonds, while the business
done was much smaller in proportion. The
sales of all issues reached $1,659,000, out of
which Chicago Gas and Coke firsts furnished
$294,000 and Erie seconds $104,000. The tone of
the dealings was heavy from start to finish, and
most of the issues traded in are lower to-night.
The important losses include: New York and
Northern seconds, 2 at 50.

Office of the pittsbuko dispatch,
THUKSD A Y, February 21, 1889. J
Country Produce Jobbing Prices.
A cood article of country cutter is in better
demand than for some months past. The ac
tive movement in cheese whicn usually pre
cedes Lent has made its start, say jobbers. An
advance is anions the stronc probabilities be
fore many days. The demand for strictly fresh
eggs is fully up to supply at quotations. Said
a Liberty street commission merchant to-day:
"A year ago, when all kinds of country produce
was scaice and hich, there was 'good money in
our business. Now that there is an abundance
of ever thing, anl stuff is dirt cheap, we are
compelled to work for glory. There is not
enough in our line to pay the landlord, tax col
lector and preacher, and it is my belief that
very few commission merchants of this city
will come out even on this winter's trade."

Argentine Republic, has increased immensely
in the last few years, and amounted in 1837 to
about 2.000,000 francs. Formerly this article
was supplied exclusively by Great Britain, but

brought from France, and the Creusot works
