f Spring Trade in Wall Paper Opening

TASTE FOEtJOOD GOODS GROWING.
An Allegheny Factory Will Furnish Wall

Office of Pittsburg Dispatch. ?
TUESDAY. March 6, 1SS9. $
The time for the opening of the spring
trade in wallpaper lines varies with the
weather. This season's trade opened up
earlier than usual on account of the open
weather. Orders bezan to come in by the
middle of February, in the wholesale de
partment Last spring trade did not open
up until the middle of March. The memo
rable blizzard last March, about the middle
of the month, spoiled many a nice-laid plan of
wallpaper dealers, as well as bringing anguish
to many hearts in he land by furnishing food
to the great destroyer.
Last season was one of the late ones for the
wallpaper trade. This has been one of the ear
liest. Bat there is no knowing what the future
has in store in the matter of weather.
A Dealer Talks.
An interview with W. H. Allen, ono of onr
leading dealers in this line, called out the fol
lowing statement of the situation and outlook
ot this important industry: "Pittsburg is al
ways ready to catch on to new styles in house
decorations, regardless of cost. If the latest
styles can be procured at home, our people pre
fer to get their goods at home. But it has only
been within a Tery few years that they can get
what they want in the line of wall decorations
at home. Not many j ears ago decorations for
halls and parlors were obtained from Philadel
phia or New York. Now oar people hare dis
covered that the most artistic designs can be
had at home at prices far below what they had
to pay in former years in Eastern cities. The
trade at home is now fully able to meet all de
mands in the line of wall adornments, and at
rices which would have been a surprise to
ealers a few years ago."
In the interview with the above mentioned
dealer tbe fact was developed that a factory
would in a few weeks be started in Allegheny
City for the manufacture of wall paper of tbe
very highest grade. A company with abun
dant capital h.is been organized, andhas started
off with an offer ot handsome prizes for original
designs, a new feature in Pittsburg's indus
tries. It is something new nnder the sun that
manufacturers of this city should hold out in
ducements in the shape of prizes for designs
that will develop home talent and further the
good work of decoration for our homes.
Alone in the Field.
The only city west of the Allegheny Mount
ains where there is a wall paper factory is
Buffalo. In the metropolis of Western New
York an immense trade has been developed,
which reaches to the four corners of the earth.
Wall paper, with the Buffalo stamp, goes to
Australia, Japan. China, and, in fact, to almost
every country under the sun. t
The new enterprise to be launched here this
spring will aim to bring Western Pennsylvania's
metropolis into line that she may have her
share of this trade. A leading dealer in wall
paper speaking of the situation and outlook of
this industry, said to-day: "Tbe leading feat
ures ol our trade are that a much higher grade
of goods is demanded than in former years. The
day of tinsel and shoddy is past. Our cus
tomers demand the best. The tastes of the
people are steadily improving, and the ginger
bread decorations which would have passed
muster a few j ears ago, are no longer salable.
Prices are stiffening all along the line, bnt
margins w ere never as close. Competition is
sharp, and the man who wins now must hustle?"

BoSTON-The wool market has not developed
any specially new features during the past three
days. For fine grades of domestic there has
been a fair inquiry, but buyers refuse to oper
ate except at some concession In price. Ohio

held at 85fi!36c but it is difficult to get the out
side figure for X and above; 3334c are quoted
but not much is selling at over 33a Very few
Michigan X fleeces go at over 31c, though a
higher range is asked. Kentucky and Mis
souri unwashed fleeces are held with confidence
because the stock is very small. Territory
wools are in very light supply and ingood con
dition are scarce. California and Texas are
fairly steady, but holders do not refuse a rea
sonable bid to clear up. Australian wool con
tinues firm, with available supplies mostly in
The German Iron Trade.
A Berlin correspondent says that the German-ironmasters
are still fairly sunplled with
orders at the prices fixed by the syndicate,

considering the increased cost of the raw ma

are being transformed, and most of the works

figure, and closed ljc lower than yesterday's

weakness other than that there was but little
demand, and that the offerings wero quite
large. A large local floor trader was reported
as having unloaded a line of long wheat The
fine weather .here and increase of 264,000 bush

yesterday's closing, and for a while the market

close figures. With agents business was good
in special directions, but general trade contin

UNEXPECTED TUMBLE IN PETROLEUM-
A seat in the Pittsburg Petroleum, Grain
and Metal Exchange is valued nt irom'$5S0
to $050. Everything considered, this is a
very moderate price to pay for the privi
leges which a , seat insures. Seats in the
Cincinnati Exchange are held at about the
same figure. In St. Iiouis and Chicago they
are higher. In New York a membership in
the Stock Exchange costs a small fortune,
seats being held at (23,000. This is the
hlchest figure ever re&che'd there and is taken
as an indication of a condition of prosperity
never before attained.
Exchanges art a great convenience to busi
ness men as well as the public generally, and
their prosperity should be cause for general
congratulation. The PittSburg Exchange,
which is comparatively new, is making rapid
advances in membership and influence, and if
the present able management be continued, it
will in a few years be one of the most impor
tant institutions of the kind in the country.
Now that the Presidents! succession has been
settled by the induction of General Harrison, I
think business will pick up' remarked a prom
inent financier yesterday. "Political uncer
tainty has kept it in the dumps ever since the
"Do you' like President Harrison's policy as
outlined in bis inaugural?"
"I haven't had time to readlt, anddon't know
what his policy is except in a general way. It
is not his policy that I refer to as likely to give
trade a fresh start It is the exchange of a cer
tainty for an uncertainty. Nothing is so par
alyzing to a business man as to be compelled to
work in the dark. He wants something tangi
ble upon which to make his calculations and
lay bis plans. A chance of administration
always causes more or less depression. It not
only involves an element of uncertainty to
capitalists, but it diverts the attention of large
numbers of people from the ordinary affairs
and.dutles-of life to political movements and
speculations, to the great injury of business.
Now that we have passed this critical period, I
expect an era of good, times to set in which
will be felt in every branch of industry."
"Would the lengthening of the Presidental
term be in the interest of business?"
"I think it would. Elections come too close
together. We are scarcely through with one
until plans are laid and the wires worked for
another. This keeps the country constantly
torn up, and makes politics a regular trade or
profession. There are about 3,000,000 of pro
fessional politicians in the country men of
ability and energy who devote their time en
tirely to tbe making and unmaking of public
officials. If these men could be taken out of
politics and furnished employment in useful
occupations, it -would be a treat tain to the
country. This could be accomplished in xsome
measure by making the Presidental term six or
While most of the real estate agencies do a
general business, giving special attention to tbe
buying, selling and renting of residence prop
erties, others make a specialty of business
houses. The senior member of one of the latter
firms said yesterday : "There is more inquiry
for business houses than tbe public is aware of.
They are very scarce. I could rent a dozen of
them before to-morrow night if I had them.
The most desirable of them are never empty.
They are often rented a year ahead. Those
that are occasionally empty are generally small,
badly located and adapted to only special lines
"The scarcity of this description ot property
is a great detriment to the city, is it not?"
"Most decidedly. Within the past week or
two Iiave had to turn away at Jeast a score of
applicants, because I didn't have such houses
as they wanted. In some cases I had none at
all. The result has been that some of these
men have given up the idea of going into busi
ness this season, while others have sought and
found openings elsewhere. This is a direct loss
to tbe city, which could easily be prevented if
our capitalists would only do their duty to the
community by investing their money in new
buildings instead of dumping it into the banks,
which have more than they have use for, or
letting it lie idle. Wo are in a dilemma; we
must either put up notices that no moro out
siders are wanted or we must erect suitable
buildings for their accommodation. Without
more houses of all kinds tbe much further
growth of the city is impossible,-and we might
as well build a wall around it at once."

A Break In Oil In tbe Face of Heavy
The bears ruled the roost at tbe Oil Ex
change yesterday. They got to work as soon
as the gong sounded and kept at it all day,
holding the price down and raking in sufficient
quantities of the deceptive commodity to make
themselves solid. The market opened at 92c.
Almost Immediately it weakened and sold
down to 92c. It then rallied slowly to 92c
and hung between that and 92c through the
middle of the day, when it encountered
another wave of depression and dropped to
91c This was too much for tbe bulls, and,
after great efforts, they raised the figures to
92c, around which tbe market hovered until
near the close, when it went to pieces again,
bringing up at 91Kc This was succeeded by a
little spurt to 91c, which were the final
The slump was a surprise to many, and was
in the face of heavy buying in the East, which
made it still more -inexplicable. While this
expresses the sentiment of the bull element,
others have maintained all along, since the de
cline from 93c,the highest point reached
since last fall, that the market had seen its
best for the present and would gradually seek
a lower level until 90c, or below was reached,
about April 1, when there would be a reaction
of 2 or d cents, between these conflicting views
outsiders must make their choice. The best
that can be said for the market is that It is as
liable to go one way as another. Trading was
active during the first and last hours, but very
light in the middle of the day.

With the Political Outlook at Washington
Stocks Lose Their Grip Under Heavy
Realizing and .Other Bearish In
fluences Bonds Quiet. ,
New York, March 6. The stock market
was weak and declining during the forenoon
to-day, and losses were sustained, which, not
withstanding the strong tone of the latter por
tion of the day, were not fully recovered, and
the result of tbe day's operations is to leave
most of the list fractionally lower than last
evening. The London quotations were lower
this morning, and there was comparatively
heavy selling from that center in the early
trading, the pressure being from the continent.
The favorites of that center were all weak, and
especially Louisville and Nashville and. St.
Other influences worked against the market,
and the failure of the Reading Iron "Works cre
ated an unfavorable impression. Tbe most
potent of the local Influences, however, was the
realizations in Manhattan on the rise of the
past week and the disappointment in some di
rections over the declaration of a scrip divi
dend, and the stock dropped- over 4 per cent.
Other specialties showed marked weakness,
and Oregon Short Line Navigation, Pullman
and some others declined a point or more. The
aspect of political affairs in Washington met
with general approval, however, and when the
pressnre was removed there was a sharp re
covery in the specialties and most of the gen
eral list were brought up to the level of tho
opening figures, and In some cases fractionally
Afternoon the tone of the general list under
went a marked change for tee better, but the
Improving tendency was held in check by a
further drop in Manhattan, which reached
1WK. a drop of Ai per cent from its first price.
Tennessee Coal was tbe strong feature, but
was afterward superseded by Short Line,
which rose as rapidly as Manhattan
had dropped, and before delivery hour
had risen 4 per cent, the rest of
the list following slowly. Realizations on the
advance from tbe lowest figures again sagged
the list off slightly, but the close was firm at
the concession. In the last hour Chesapeake
and Ohio first preferred stock rose rapidly and
scored a material gain for the day. Almost the
entire list is small fractions lower this evening.
Manhattan lost 3, Pullman 2 and Missouri
Pacific 1 percent, while Short Line and Chesa
peake and Ohio first preferred rose 2 each.
Railroad bonds were not as active as yester
day and the tone of the dealings was not so
strong, the changes being fairly divided be
tween gains and losses. The sales of all issnes
aggregated Si;S33,00(. of which Ohio Southern
incomes furnished 5138,000 and the Denver and
Rio Grande Western assented 5111,000.

Boston, March 5. There has been unusual
excitement in electric circles during the past
few days owing to the rapid advance of the
stock of the Thomson-Houston Company. The
Boston Herald of the 2d says: "A feature on
the street to-day was the private dealing In
Thomson-Houston electric shares, which shot
up from about 200 to 260 on prospective rights.
Gossip said one share of new preferred would
be given for one present common share at 25,
with a share of common thrown in. Gossip
further said that the company earned more
than 100 per cent on its capital inlS88:tobe
precise, 120 per cent, or 31,200,000 on 51,000,000
common stock. An incentive to the buying
was unquestionably the signing by Governor
Bulkeley, of Connecticut yesterday of the bill
giving this company authority to increase its
capital to 10,000,000 common and 5,000,000 pre
A careful inquiry among Interested and other
parties indicates that the Thomson-Honstoo
Company have begun negotiations with Henry
Villaid, through Mr. Garrison, with the view
of securing Villard's option on the Edison
stocks, and thus secure control of the Edison
Company, which in such case would thereafter
be operated nnder Thomson-Houston manage
ment, though It is likely the name of tbe Edi
son. Company would be retained for commer
If the negotiation of Garrison with Villard
succeeds It will practically divide theelectrio
business of the country between two large con
cerns, the Thomson-Houston and tbe Westing
house Electric Company, of Pittsburg, between
which companies there is already said to be
some business relations relating to lamps and
Rumor has it that tbe Thomson-Houston
Company proposes to confine its own peculiar
business to street railway work exclusively,
allowing the lighting to go on under tho ar
rangement with Edison companies, and that
the Boston street railways will adont the over
head electric system of operation in preference
to an underground cable system.
It is a fact that for some reason the shares of
tbe Thomson-Houston Company, having assets
of less than $4,000,000, have suddenly risen to
figures making tbe present market value of its
issued stock nearly three times the value ot its
assets: and there is the keenest competition in
the search for particulars.

Country Produce Jobblne Prices.
The Elgin Butter Board, at its regular meet
ing on Monday, made no change in prices. All
genuine butter is on the boom. A Liberty
street commission man said tc-day that bis
customers were ordering a half-dozen tubs
where they ordered one a few weeks ago. It
has become entirely too risky to handle butter
ine when a-fino and imprisonment stares deal
ers in the face.
Eggs are easy. Sweitzer and Limburg cheese
are quiet, and prices are shaded with cash
customers. Factories are overstocked with
American Sweitzer cheese, and there is a dis
position to unload, which depresses markets.
Prices on domestic Sweitzer are now 3 to 6
cents lower at jobbing rates than this time
last year, and Limburg is 2 cents lower. A
leading authority on cheese says that Sweitzer
cheese brings little more than the staple Ohio
cheese, a thing unprecedented in the trade.
