Strawberries From Florida Begin to
Appear in Market,
ilGAME WiKIKG-PODLTRT SCARCE.
Fish and Oyster Trade is Quiet Preparatory
to Lent last.
.ACTiYf! TEADE IN FLORAL LINES.
Office of Pittsbcbg Dispatch. J
r kidai, iuaxou x, low. y
At tbe fruit and vegetable stalls of Dia
mond Market a more hopeful feeling pre
vails than since the holidays. Trade ap
pears to look up as spring approaches. The
first strawberries of the season show 'jp
from Florida this week at 51 25 a quart.
Tropical fruits are in good supply at old
rates. Fancy oranges are, however, growing
scarce, and higher prices cannot be far away.
In tbe line of staple meats tliero are no new
features of interest. Cattle are as low as ever,
and neither drovers nor cattle feeders
can find any comfort in the sit
uation. Butchers, however, have little
cause of complaint, as every L5U0 rourd
steer they cntup must yield a prohtof $30
above what be would have yielded last fall.
If there was a fair profit under the old regime
there must be a bonanza now, as consumers
pay all the sarnie for tbeir roasts and tender
loins. Jobbing rates of butter have declined since
last week, but not enough to4 affect retail
prices. Good country butter is in better sup
ply than for several weks past. A peddler
whose beat runs far into thePanbandle reports
that there it's no trouble procuring all the good
country butter wanted at leasonable rates.
Seldom has the supplv been as Rood at
this season, a fact attributed to the open
winter and the good grazing for cons. Apples
of the choicest variety are abundant within 30
miles of Pittsburg at 25 cents per bushel.
Transportation to markets over such roaas as
we have "been having the past winter doubles
Plenty of Luxuries.
At fish and oyster stalls business is reported
Slack for this week. Dealers say that the lull
tbey are having this week always precedes
Lent. Tbe good time for the trade will be fully
on after the 6th of March, md, according to
the experience of former years, will hold np
until the Fourth of July.
Red salmon from the Gnlf of Mexico, and
the finest shad from .North Carolina are in full
supply on fish stalls. The latter, which showed
up for the first time the past week, sell at $1 00
to SI 50 each. The season for game is prac
tically at an end.
Florists report an improvement on trade of
last week, with no change in prices.
It is difficult to meet the demand for lilacs.
A leading florist who laid in a large supply this
morning, f ound.be had not been large enough
in his views by tbe middle of the afternoon.
All lilacs disappeared and more were wanted.
Following are latest retail prices for Satur
day's market basket filling:

Products Active, But Prices
Weak nnd Unsettled.
CHICAGO Trading In wheat to-day was be
low the average of the past few. days, and a
quiet and dull feeling prevailed. Fluctuations
.were confined within narrow limits, the entire
range being Jc. and closed about He higher
than yesterday. There was no outside business
to speak of, and only limited local trading.
The deliveries of wheat on March'contracts
were light. There was a lack of outside news.
Corn ruled quiet and inactive early in the
session, but fairly active toward tbe close.
Trading was quite large, but confined to
transactions between local operators. The feel
ing generally was very firm, offerings being
only moderate, while a very fair demand ex
isted. The market opened at yesterday s clos
Ing prices, declined &- advanced He ruled
steady and closed KK nigbertban yesterday.
Oats were quiet and steady, with no marked
tendency. There were no deliveries on March
Contracts. t - , v
A fairly active trade was reported in hog
products, but the feeling was rather unsettled.
The weakness in the hog market had some
effect early in the day, and sales of the specu
lative articles were made at lower prices. The
deliveries on March contracts were limlted,and
ftie prospect of the report of stocks on hand
showing onlv a slight increase had a strength
ening influence later and prices rallied again.
Outside prices, however, were not supported to
the close and the market closed rather quiet.

Changes in Pittsburg Pavements
From the Earliest Times.
THE FIRST STREET MPfiOVEMENT.

LOCAL STOCKS GETTING OUT OF THE BUT
The evolution of Pittsburg pavements
from the original material dirt to Ligon
ier stone blocks, constitutes an interesting
chapter pf local history. It has taken
nearly .100 years to bring the streets of the
city from their natural condition to what
they are to-day. The first pavement laid
down in Pittsburg wis of cobble-stones on
Short, JTerry and Liberty streets, from First
avenue down. This was in 1805. 'As in all
new communities, the original pavement
was Mother ISarth, which, in seasons of wet
weather, became almost impracticable for
teams and pedestrians Among the tradi
tions that have come down from that prim
itive time are several relatine to teams
sticking in the mud on the principal thorough
fares and having to be pulled out by block or
As the city grew and business increased, this
style of pavement became impracticable.
About 1810 cobblestones began to be generally
used. They were found in great abundance in
the rivers, especially the Allegheny, and were
brought down in boats from points 100 miles
above the city. They made a solid, durable
road, and were cheap, but they were hard on
horses and vehicles as well as pedestrians and
were almost as rough as the corduroy roads in
the West Still they were a decided improve
ment on their predecessor, and were in general
use for 40 or 50 years
About 1850 plank roads became fashionable
this material being put down on tbe principal
avenues Penn and Fifth (then called Fourth)
as far out as Sobo and Hazelwood, while in
the central parts of the city aspbaltum was the
popular material Plank made a smooth road,
but It was short-lived, decaying rapidly and re
quiring constant repairs. It proved very costly
in the end. A relic of the plank-road age
lingers between Allegheny and Perrysville.
Asphaltum gave better satisfaction, being
easily and cheaply repaired, but its smooth,
glassy surfaco In wet, freezing weather was an
objection which outweighed its advantages
By this time the city was large enough and
rich enough to take another step forward in
providing good streets Tbe question of
choosing paving material was not so mnch one
of money as of effectiveness and durability.
Ligonier stone blocks which are said to com
bine both of these qualities, were, after due
consideration, selected for the purpose and are
being put down on nearly all tbe streets The
first cost is heavy, but this is compensated for,
it is claimed, by the great durability of the
material. The ease with which damages can
be repaired and the satisfaction it elves to the
public especially manufacturers and mer
chants, who have the bulk of the heavy haul
ing to do.

The Bears Find It Hard Work to Break tbe
The oil market was as puzzling as ever yester
day. It not only recovered from the previous
day's depression, but was firm nearly all day,
with a good deal of general trading.! The only
important slump was caused by selling in New
York. The initial quotation was 9 From
'this the market sold off to 9 from which
point it slowly advanced to 92, at which itsold
three times. It then weakened, with sales to
92, which were the closing figures. It was the
opinion of several operators that to-day would'
decide whether the marset would seek a hieher
level and Jiold, or sell down again, with tbe
chances in favor of the latter hypothesis
Others held that the closing above tbe 92 line,
in spite of strong bearish Influences and secret
manipulation, was an indication that It pos
sessed enouzb inherent strength to effectually
resist all efforts to get it back into tbe old rut

A, BULLISH MABKET,
Stocks Show Recuperative Enercy In the
Face of Persistent Hammerlnu They
Recover Lost Ground and Close
Higher Bonds Strong.
New ore, March L The stock market to
day, except in the first and last hours, was very
dull, but a firm to strong tone marked the
trading almost throughout, and the result of
tbe day's business is to leave all the active
shares materially higher than last evening.
For the first time in several days London came
higher this morning, and this with the in
creased disposition to bny manifested in the
room gave the shorts a great deal of uneasiness,
tboughthe battle was not given up without a
struggle. The regular bearish advices were
forthcoming from Chicago and the pessimistic
assertions took a wide range. On tbe strength
of these advices the bears made a determined
attack upon the Grangers and some of the
trunk lines, and considerable impression was
made upon Burlington, Rock Island, Big Four
and Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and In
dianapolis the last two being especially weak
for a sbort time.
The bullish feeling, however began to crop
outin many different portions of the list, and
as no long stock was shaken out of importance,
the shorts went Into cover and helped along the
general upward movement, which before the
close assumed large proportions on the com
paratively limited market. Tbe Milwaukee,
Lake Shore and Western stocks were tbe first
to show marked strength, but were soon fol
lowed by Manhattan, which the same brokers
who bad bought largely on the rise were ac
tive. The Oregon stocks and especially Navi
gation, joined the procession, the expected
guarantee of the 6 per cent dividend inducing
purchases while the general list slowly ad-,
vanced, though there was no setback through
out the remainder of the day. Later the weak
stocks of tbe forenoon rallied, and the f eatnre
of the day was tbe sharp recovery of Big Four,
whicb, after selling down to 10 rose to 10
ex-dividend of 1 per cent.
First prices were generally slightly higher as
compared with last night's figures, but there
was no vim to the speculation and the bears
soon came to the front as usual and Burlington,
Atchison and New England showed, some
weakness. Big Fonr and Cleveland, Columbus.
Cincinnati and Indianapolis afterward became
tbe special points of attack, and the former
materially declined, out reached its lowest
point before noon. Manhattan, however, be
came remarkably strong in the face of tbe
foregoing losses and, joined by the Milwaukee.
Lake Shore and Western stocks soon rallied
There was the same moderate business in
railroad bonds, the sales of all Issues aggre
gating $1,856,000, with special animation in
Denver and Rio Grande Western assented and
Bnrlington 7s which furnished $120,000 and
$100,000 respectively. There was a less marked
tone to the trading, but most of the list is firm,
and final prices are higher in most instances

stocks on the New York Stock Exchange.

Production of Southern Tig Iron.
The latest estimates of the pig iron produc
tion tbronghout the entire country show that
In 1888 tbe South made 1.132,858 tons of pig iron,
against 929,436 tons in 1887. an increase of 203,000
tons, or nearly 22 per cent. This gain is made
more striking when it is remembered that many
of the new furnaces in that section .have not
yet gone into blast. While tbe South was
making this gain the balance of the conn try
produced 121,000 tons less in 1888 than in 18SL
The Manufacturer? Record, of Baltimore, in
commenting upon tber'joye figures, says: This
is a fact well worth considering. Moreover
there is no likelihood of any material increase
in tbe production of iron in the North during
1889; in fact, tbe indications now point to the
probable blowing out of a number of Northern
furnaces which would result in even a smaller
prodnctlon than in 1SS8. unless some unex
pected boom should force many long idle
furnaces into blast.
