The Week's Transactions in Live
Stock at Herr's Island.
A "Light Ban of Sheep. Iambs and Hogs,
and Supply
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch,!
Monday. Mrcn 11, issa. i
Beceipts of cattle at Herr's Island were 31
loads. The demands of trade seem to re
quire about this number every week. Air
the receipts this week were from Chicago.
Fifteen car loads were consigned to Zeigler
& Gersoni The other 16 loads were con
signed, L, Rotchild, Lisensteln & Ackerman,
Andy Frohm and Eli Katz. The grade of.
cattle this week fell below the average in
quality. "There were more scrubby steers than
usual in the supplies, and very few prime stock.
The large majority of those received were un
der 1,400 pounds in weight A number of loads
v ere troruBOO to 1,000 pounds and not very in-.
iting. VZ. IA
The tendency has been stronc for some weeks
past both at East Liberty and Herrls I
jaiuo vw jiuau iuh iuuu silt, wn uj ....,.
Stockmen attribute this tendency to the sharp
competition.bronght by the dressed beef trade.
Butchers claimthat there is no money in cattle
for which they nave to pay much above 4c per
Prices of tattle Tary little from those which
ruled a -u eek ago. If anything, markets to-day
are slower; than last Monday. The best cattle
on the market-weighing 1.-500 to l.OOOpounds.
were sold at M 50. The lowest prices were S3 So
for scrubbv steers, weighing 900 to 1,000 pounds.
Calves are 'in better supply than they have been
for a month or tn o past. From now on there
will be no lack of Veal on butcher stalls.
Sheep and Lambs.
The run was very light, the total number re
ceived being 475 head. Receipts in February
were as high as 1,000 head in the week. Last
Monday receipts were 800 head. The ran this
week was the lightest of the season. The re
sult has been that everything has been cleaned
up. A leading dealer reports that he could
have easily sold a couple hundred moro
head if be had had them. Last week some 50
head were lelt over. This w cek the situation
was entirely fevereu. The range of prices for
sheep was 4J to5Kc, the latter figure being
paid for a few bunches of extra fine wethers.
The ranee for lambs was 6 to G?.Je. Soma
dealers report sales of a few extras at 7c
The run was very light. The total was little
above 500 head, against double that number for
several weeks before. Prices were 15 to 20 cents
better than last week. The range of prices was
H 90 to to 25. As with sheep and lambs, de
mand for hogs was much above supply. Every
hog was sola early in the day, ana many more
could have been sold.
Markets at Chicago and East Liberty have
been as at Herr's Island for the week past. Tho
situation all around the circle has been in favor
of sellers.
The condition of country roads through the
West is such that farmers find great difficulty
getting their hogs to market, hence the short
age. The remedy will come soon, and the
comingneekis likely to bring full supplies. An
overdose of cattle is also likely to come at an
early day, judging from a dispatch received by
one of our leading pork packers to-day from
Chicago. The message states that cattle re
ceipts there were 12,000 head yesterday. Tho
overflow from this large supply will show up
here in a few days, and markets are likely to
weaken under the load.

A Prediction.
Henry Clews 4 Cou, New York, says in their
weekly circular: The money market is more
active and firmer, the tendency being toward
still higher rates. At this season there usually
is a better demand for" mercantile purpose.
and with the approach of April 1 and the set-
tUU BCl"

This, of course, acts unfavorably upon stocks;
considering wmcn, ana ine unsatistactory m
fluences noted above, as well as the growing
boldness of the bears, there is a strong prob
ability of lower prices. A feverish stock mar
ket may also be looked for during the next two
weeks, at least, so that speculative operations
should be Conducted with a view ot making
quick turns rather than expecting a pro
nounced upward movement.
Drygoodi Market.
NEW York. March U. There was a fair
Monday in dryeoods with jobbers, with increas
ing activity expected through the week. There
is no change in the features ot trade. Buyers
continue conservative and ginghams are still
slaughtered. A few agents report considera
ble Improvement in demand for staple cottons
and fancy prints. Agents reduced the prices
of Warwick dress gingham from 3fc to 6ks to
jobatOKe, and advanced the price of orfc
denims c a yard.

Wheat Active, Excited nnd Unsettled Corn
and Oata Lower Hog Product Un
dergo n Slight Decide 'on TJn
nsnally Heavy Receipts.
ChicagoA large business was transacted
in wheat to-day, and the feeling was nervous
and unsettled, with prices lower. The open
ing was weak, influenced by lower cables and
fine weather here and abroad. Financial
affairs in Pans are still unsettled, and hid a
tendency to create weakness. Tbo first sales
for May were at J5c declinefrom Saturday's
closing, and quickly declined it more, hut
good buying, chiefly from the "shorts," started
the market up. and prices were advanced lc,
bnt again became weaker, declining lo under
a renewed pressure to sell, a prominent local
trader being credited with Selling freely.
About this time reports ttere received of ex
port buying in New York, and a rumored sale
of flour in Minneapolis lor export. This
started shorts to covering, and prices advanced
ljc, fluctuated some and closed about c
lower tban'SUurday July ruled comparatively
firm, opening about c lower than Saturday'-s
closing; advanced lc receded lc, ruled strong
and closed c higher than Saturday. There
was good buying for July most of the day.
A. verv fair business was reported in corn,
and slightly lowcrprices were established. The
feeling developed was somewhat easier, though
fluctuations were narrow, within a c range.
Oats were active. The feeling was weak and
the range of prices lower. The best buying
came from the shorts, but had no effect on
values until prices had declined Jc, when a
rally of lie followed. June received more at-
&Sg&?J1l nC04 Is stlady.
The market for Mav closed 6teady at ywA&
Onlv a moderate trade was reported in hog
products dnd the fluctuations in prices were
confined within a narrower range than for sev
eral days past. The receipts of hogs were
larger than generally expected, with prices
favoring buyers, and this had a weakening in
fluence and caused a slight decline in prices
for the leading articles.

British Breadstuff.
LoNDON.March U. The Jf ark Lane Express,
in its weekly review of the British grain trade,
says: The values of English wheat advanced
slowly during the first part of last week. Then
milder weather caused a halt, and on most of
the exchanges prices'are inclined to recede.
The condition of samples at London has im
proved. The average p rice for the week ended
on Tuesday was 32s Sd on sales amounting to
2,917 quarters, an increase of 2s Id over the pre
ceding week, with larger sales. It is probable
that the next report will show a 'reaction. Che
sales of English wheat during the past week
were 02,377 quarters at 30s Id, against 64,198
quarters at 30s 6d during the corresponding
week last year.
Tho supply of flour made from 1887 wheat is
becoming limited, and prices have advanced M.

I am satisfied that Cancer is hereditary in my
family: My father died of it, a sister of my
mother died of ft, and my own sister died of it.
My feelings may be imagined, then, when the
horrible aisaase made its appearance on my
side. It was a malignant Cancer, eating ir
wardly in such a way that it could not be cut
out. Numerous 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
the first day, forced out the poison and con
tinued its use until I had taken several bottles,
when I found myself well. 1 know that S. S. S.

The Scheme for Widening Diamond
"Alley Agitated 50 Tears Ago.
Taxation Said to be Dealing a Death Blow
at the Farming Business.
"The project for widening Diamond alley
is not a new one," remarked a prominent
Fourth street gentleman yesterday after
noon. "It was agitated when I was a
schoolboy, 40 or B0 years ago; but there it is
yet, and there it will likely remain for the
next generation to wrangle over. If you
will tell me when the hump will be cut down I
will tell you when the alley will be widened.
They are both conundrums."
Tree planting, it is stated, will be on a large
scale this season, particularly in the suburbs.
Apropos of this a veteran nurseryman furnishes
some valuable information. Be says: Many
of those who contemplate planting trees select
the largest and oldest they can get from the
nurseryman, expecting earlier and better re
sults. This, however, is a mistake. The opera
tion of lifting such trees necessarily gives a
shock to their vitality and interferes with their
vital functions, and the tree will be the longer
in recovering from the injuries after trans
planting than younger trees, which sustain less
Injury, and which usually have more and finer
rootlets than trees of greaterage. The smaller
trees adapt themselves better to the change,
make new roots quicker, and sooner become
fitted to their new locations and conditions.
Those impatient for early fruitage will find
only disappointment in selecting the most
mature specimens they can find.
The Lonerbaugh property, on Wood street,
Wilkinsburtr. has been sold. The old buildings
will be removed and a fine brick business block
erected in their stead. The price paid is
known only to the principals, but it would re
quire five figures to express It. Ten years ago
AVood street was a mud road running through
a howling wilderness. Now it is lined with
handsome houses on both sides, from the rail
road station to Penn avenue, and is the princi
pal thoroughfare of the newly-fledged borongh.
Does farming pay in Pennsylvania? is a
question that is being discussed in many of
the country newspapers. Some show that the
business is as good as it was a generation ago,
while others take the opposite view. A writer
in a Hollidaysburg paper says:
Standing lately at Bradley's station, 1 looked
over a section of country! comprising 25 farms,
with all of which I have been Intimately ac
quainted, during the last half century. Forty
years ago there were upon each of these farms 2
able-bodied men with from 3 to S boys. Each farm
had upon It 3 or 4 horses, an average of 20 head oE.
cattle and as many beau or sheep. To-aaysor
these farn9 are vacant. Five of them are in the
hands of tenants a class unknown in former
times and the others, with one or two exceptions,
arc feebly operated by an old man and a boy.
Farmers are belnjr taxed out of existence. as"the
following will show: Upon a farm of
ISO acres with which I am acquainted,
the taxes last year, exclusive of
national taxes (which average 3 per
head) were J7S. This takes eight tons of bay, or
ISO bushels of oats or corn, or 75 bushels of wheat,
and the cost of marketing is frequently to be
added. We are taxed in scores of other ways
which do not appear so plainly. We are under
the necessity of buying wire for fencing. This
article, which Is made at a fair profit for (25 per
ton. Is sold to the farmers for ?123. Suppose It costs
S50 a ton to make it? Can any occupation bear
such a tai? 1 repeat, 4hat farming is threatened
with destruction by excessive taxation.
Tho Philadelphia Secord says building lots
for weekly installments of 40 cents are adver
tised in Pittsburg. This is misleading. While
such lots are advertised in Pittsburg, they are
not Pittsburg lots, as the advertisement clearly
states, but are located at Portland, Jay county,
Indiana. Forty cents wouldn't buy ' enough of
Pittsburg ground for a chemical analysis. The
Record ought to be better posted,

The Chances for Better or Worse Thought
tobe About Even.
The oil market yesterday exhibited the same
general characteristics with which the public
are so familiar. It was firm and weak by
turns, the latter being the predominating
feature. It bad no outside support, and the
trading, which was small, was confined to the
The opening figures were 90Kc Buying at
Oil City soon sent the quotation ut to 90Kc,
from which it broke to 90Kc The market then
gradually sold up during the day and reached
91J6c which was the top price. There was a
break in the last hour to 91c, from which there
was a slight rally to 91c, at which the mar
ket closed.
"It's .a very uncertain market," said an
operator. "The chances for better or worse
are about even. I think still lower values will
be reached before there will be a material re
action. The situation justifies higher prices,
but that is no sign that we will have them.
The Standard has the veto power."

A Big Day In the Stock Market Bears
Make a Raid, but Get a Black Eye
Nearly Everything Higher.
New York, March 1L This was the most
active day of the year in the stock market, and
after the first break the market continued
strong until the close, and the stocks of the
active list tonight are almost invariably higher.
The early advices from the other side were not
reassuring, and tbo bears with the aid of Lon
don, Chicago, Boston and. Philadelphia were
enabled to drive prices down in the early deal
ings, but the cable soon brought better news
from Europe and the scare' was repqrted to be
over there, both In Paris and London with a
much calmer leeling. The buylng.f or tho long
account then began, and "the sellers of the
earlv hour turned buyers, which spon induced
a free covering of shorts and upward move
ment which was Inaugurated and lasted- until
the final close of business.
Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago and London
were large purchasers and all the prominent
stocks felt the stimulus, rising over a point
from the lowest figures before noon. Reading
and St. Paul were conspicuous for the pressure
brought against them Irv the first drive and
there were several large lots of the former sold
which were believed to be for the insiders, but
it was among the first to recover when the re
action canto. The announcement that the
roads west of the Mississippi river had per
fected an agreement to maintain rates which
stated as so stronc that no road could long re
main out, was a marked factorin the late trad
ing and the roads in that section of the
country became prominent for strength at the
close. Ihe news of the day other than that
from the other side was not of special import
ance, and there was a marsed absence of the
usual pessimistic advices from Chicago.
The market opened very active and decidedly
weak, most stocks being from Ji to Ji per cent
lower thin on Saturday evening. The Coal
stocks. Grangers and Union Pacific showed
most weakness in the early dealings, but in
none of these were' the first decline supple
mented for more than a fraction. Michigan
Central, however, dropped over a point. The
losses In the rest of the list were confined to
the smallest fractions, and by the end of the
first half hour the decline was checked and
prices rapidly recovered, most stocks sliowinga
gain over first prices by the end of the hour,,
Thnrinp. tioweyer. continued without check
I until nearly ndon, with Lackawanna and
Chicago uas most conspicuous in tuo rise.
Comparative dullness then overspread the list,
but prices slowly advanced without any special
feature until the close, which was active and
strong at the best prices. Pullman scored a net
loss ot 1 per cent, but the rest of the active list
is almost Invariably higher. Burlington and
Quincy rose i, Manhattah IK and Atchison 1
per cent.
Railroad bonds were veryquiet, all the ani
mation imparted to the dealings being from tbe
activity in the Readingissues, and the second
incomes furnished 206,000 to the day's total of
$L351,O0a The market, sympathized with the
weakness in the share' list at first, and while
there was a better tone later in the day, most of
the improved changes this evening are in the
direction of lower figures.

The Fall River, Mass.. weavers' strike for
an advance in wages, which occurred yesterday
morning, is one of the most general in the his
tory of labor troubles at that place. The weav
ing departments of 50 mills are practically shut
down, and 6,000 weavers- are idle. Those who
refused to strike do not number moro than half
enough to keep one mill going. The extent of
the strike is quite a surprise to the managers,
who expected that only a few mills would be in
volved. Considerable comment was excited at Lon
don by the sensational reports cabled fromCal
f ornia sources of tho destruction of the U. 8. S.
Nlpsic by a German vessel. The reports found
few believers, however, and the opinion most
generally expressed is that they were circulated
with the object of arousing American public
sentiment against Germany. Nobody believes
that the Samoan difficulty wl'l not be amicably
settled by the parties to the Berlin conference,
and in official and diplomatic circles the circu
lation of alarmist rumors concerning the affair
is strongly deprecated.
The bobbin combination, or trust, an organi
zation formed in 1886 under, the name of the
American Spqpl and Bobbin Association, has
gone to pieces, after strenuous exertions made
during the past week or two to reorganize It
upon a more substantial basis and one that
would hold the members to a stricter account
ability. This combination was formed to regu
late the price of bobbins, spools and similar
articles so largely used in cotton and woolen
manufactures, and it included practically all
the bobbin manufacturers of any consequence
in the East, and represented in the aggregate
millions of dollars.
Clifton Hall, one of the largest hotels at
Lakewood, N. Y., was burned to the ground
?'esterday morning. There were over 60 guests
n the honse at the time, who all escaped in
their night garments with tbe exception of Dr.
E. Wlllano. of Philadelohla. who lumned from
a second story window and broke his leg, but
was otherwise uninjured. The fire spread to
the Presbyterian Church and. six adjoining
house, but was quickly extinguished hv the
firemen. The total loss is estimated at $35,000,
only partly insured. The guests lost all their
personal property, and were housed in the
other local hotels. ,
The now Evident Intention of the Parnell
Commission to refrain from making an interim
report on tbe Parnell letters has awakened the
wrath of thellome Rulers, and It Is likely that
an attack will be made upon tbe Government
by the opposition leaders, with a view to elicit
ing an explanation of the Government's con
nection with the case of the Times. This at
tack will very probably be led by Mr. Glad
stone, who has already signified his purpose of
arraigning tbe Ministry for its partisan course
in a matter which should have been conducted
with the utmost impartiality, and the squirm
ing of some of the Ministers trader his lash
will be interesting to witness.
The funeral of the late John Ericsson, tbe
famous engineer and inventor, took place yes
terday from Trinity Church, New York City.
The body was followed from his house on
Beech street to tbe church by a long string of.
carriages and mourners. The sidewalks in
front of the church were packed with people
who were anxious to catch a glimpse of tbe
caket containing tbe body. A force of police
were present to keep the people from pressing
into the already overcrowded church. The or
gan pealed forth music while the body was be
ing carried into tho church. Tbe navy yard
was well represented, there being in attendance
two officers from each ship and one officer from
each department.
Henry George says he is going to make a
three months' campaign of it through England,

The Supreme Court of. tho Unite'd States
yesterday rendered an opinion reversing the
judgment of the Supreme Court of Utah, in
the case of Afidrew Colton versus the people of
the Territory of Utah. Colton, in a drunken
scuffle, killed a companion who was returning
home from Salt Lake City with him in a wagon.
He then drove back to the city, gave himself
up and was convicted and sentenced to death.
He appealed the case to the Supreme Court of
the Territory on tbe ground that tbe Judge at
his trial had not instructed the jury that it
might, in case of murder in the first degree,
recommend that the prisoner be sentenced to
imprisonment for life. The Territorial Court
deciding against Colton, the case was brought
to the Supreme Court, which to-day reversed
tbe judgment of the Territorial Court and re
manded the case with instructions to grant
Colton a new trial. Opinion by Justice Har

A leading flonr jobber said to-day: "There is
nothing else for flour but a decline if things
continue as they are. All last week we
had to concede a 'little on prices. The way
matters look this week prices must drift to a
lower level. Our customers are generally low
in stock, but seem unwilling to take bold on
present uncertainties of markets, Speculators
will, in my opinion, get hold of most ef the
stock before the new crop comes in. Prices of
wheat and flour depend entirely on the amount
of wheat still left in thehands of farmers, nnd
the amount of this no mortal can telL For the
past week farmers of the Northwest have been
bringing more wheat to markets than was
counted on, and this ha& helped td depress
wheat and flour.
