Wednesday. Mrch 13, 18S9. J
The run of cattle for the local trade this
Week has been from SO to 85 loads, a slight
advance on last -week's ran. More than one
half were from Chicago. Quality -was below
the average. Very few steers were above 1,400
pounds in weight. The bulk of supplies were
common to good batcher stock from 1,100 to
A leading drover accounts for the deteriora
tion in quality thps: "Good grades that have
been held over are being sent out to graze in
the hope of better markets, and we are now re
ceiving the dregs which will not pay to keep."
One thing is certain, that no prime cattle
showed up in this week's supplies. There were
a few loads of stockers weighing from TOO to
8)0 in the receipts. The best grades and poor
est are conspicuously absent from markets this
Prices were 10 to 20c lower than last week.
An old timer, bo has known the Liberty stock
yards froui the start, said: "Iliave net er seen
the time when cattle were as low as they have
been this week. Markets are thoroughly de
moralized. We thought last week that bottom
had been reached, ft seems there is still a
lower deep, and this week beats all former
records for poorness of markets."
At last accounts a half-dozen loads were in
the bands of wholesale dealers unsold. Almost
as many more were in retailers' hand in search
of customers. The highest price realized was
$4 OS. The same grade would have brought
$4 25 a week ago,and over $6 00 last fall. Good
butcher cattle, weighing 1,050 to L300 pounds,
sold from J3 15 to S3 65. The above figures are
for carload lots. An occasional steer, in a re
tail waj, passed above the $4 50 line. But this
was the exception. Since the era of Chicago
dressed beef.cattle dealers are forced to handle
low grade cattle to compete for trade. The re
sult has been that verj few prime cattle are
coming to market, and those that do come are
brought on special order.
The supply of veal calves is now ample for
all deiuauds, and the diift ot prices is down
ward. The range of prices is 5 to 6Jc. For
milk- calves the range is 3 to 4c Stockmen say
they look for a glut of veal in a short time and
advise shippers to hold back stock. Bulls sell
fairly well at 2c to 3c and have suffered least
from demoralization of markets.
bheep and Lambs.
The run varied little from last week. Total
receipts on Monday were about 20 loads. Mar
kets were slow at the beginning of the week on
prices of last week. Reports from Eastern
markets were not very encouraging. Since
Monday the tone of markets has improved, and
to-day stock is firmly held at strong last week's
The run has been light, and still prices have
weakened since Monday. A decline of 10 to
15c since yesterday is reported by a leading
dealer. The range of prices to-day is So to So 15.
There is now scarcely any difference between
.prices of medium and heavy hogs, fcinee the
season opened light weights have brouchttbe
best prices. Now heavyweights bring almost
the same figures as light.
Pork packers say that prices of hogs have
been relatively higher here this season thin
anywhere in the land. The late drop, it is
claimed, brings pnees to correspond witu mar
kets in the V est.
E. M. McCall fc Co. report the receipts of
cattle liberal and demand limited. The worst

ized quite a number left unsold. We give

The "Wilkinsburg Natural Gas Company
has placed most of its new stock, and work
on the second well will begin in a lew days.
It is the intention to have it completed in
about 30 days. It will be thoroughly tested
by experts. The result will determine the
value of the district for gas-producing pur
poses. The old well remains plugged, and
nothing will be done with It until the value
of the new one shall have been determined.
The establishment of several important
business enterprises in the borough depends
upon the success of the new well.
In the early days of steamboat navigation
Neville's Island was a terror to pilots, owing to
natural obstructions and the'variableness of
the channel. The following directions for
making the passage are taken from the Western
Pilot of 1829. They are interesting to nilots of
the present day: "Channel to the right. About
three-fourths of a mile abovo the island keep
to the right to avoid the bar- at its bead, and
pass pretty close to Baldwin's mill dam, and,
when past it, close in to the right shore helow.
Then turn short across for the island and keep
near the shore until you approach a small
sandy island, when you must keep to the right
and pass between the latter ana Lowry's rock,
which lies on the right, opposite. A. quarter
of a mile beiow the small sandy
island keep to the left around the head of
Duff's bar andnear to the Neville Island shore,
until you are within a mile and a quarter of its
foot, then turn quickly to the right and ap
proach within 5C yards of the right shore, and
when nearly np with Hog Island incline to the
leftaud keep a third of the river on your right,
which will carry you clear of the bar at the
foot of the island and the shore bar on your
right. After passing Middletown bar incline
to the left."
There is a peculiarity about Pittsburg streets
that I have not noticed to the same extent in
any other city that I have visited," remarked a
prominent business man yesterday afternoon.
They are not broad and smooth as they might
be, but they do not stretch out indefinitely,
lined with rows of big blocks, requiring pedes
trians and vehicles to travel long distances to
a corner. Pittsburg streets intersect and bisect
each other so frequently that the city is full of
corners, making it easy to pass from one part
of the city to another. This is a great advan
tage to business. It saves both time and

A DE0P IN OIL.
An Exciting Day nt the Oil
There were lively times at the OilVxchange
yesterday, at times almost reachingmbe pro
portions of a panic. The marketoffened at
90c with a weak feeling, caused, in part, by
the report of McCune No. 6, on the Knox farm,
Taylorstown, doing from 50 to 60 barrels an
hour, but mainly by heavy selling and numer
ous stop orders, which cansed a pretty general
disposition to unload.
'At this polut the excitement surpassed any
thing of the kind witnessed here since last fall.
There was a Babel of noises, and the confnsion
was 60 great that a short rest had to be taken
to restore order. The market bung around the
opening price for sTShort time, when it rallied
and sold up to 91Jc the highest point reached
during the day from whiqh it sagged to 90c,
and finally to 8Sc. amid great excitement and
large offerings. From this point there was a
recovery to 69a Just before the close there
was another slump, which sent the quotation
down to 89c, which were the final figures. The
drop during the day was lc
It was the opinion of some that only the ap-
Sarent scarcity of oil prevented a still further
ecline. An operator, In giving his view of the
outlook, said: "I think the market will sell
around 88c to-morrow, and then rally 2c or Sc
The chances for a further slump, however, are
very good. The situation is so uncertain that
I don't want anybody to handle oil on my judgment."

barrels per hour last night, though she has
been reported as making a much higher pro
duction. This morning she was doing 65 bar
rels an hour and to-mgbt 10 barrels an hour
less. This is by far the best well yet struck iri

The Expected Improvement in tlio Stock
Market Fails to materialize Active
Shares Lower Railroad Bonds
Dall bat Firm.
New York, March 13. The stock market to
day was dull and heavy throughout the greater
portion of the time, and prices to-night are
generally fractionally low er than those of last
evening. Notwithstanding the long deferred
acceptance of the chairmanship of the Inter"
State Association by .Mr. Walker, which had
been looked for as the probable precursor of an
upward movement in the stock market, to
gether with the buying by London of St. Paul
and some other shares, there was a marked in
disposition to invest on the long side, while the
bears were encouraged by the dullness to make
another drive at values and they were aided by
the bearish utterances attributed to Mr. Gould
with the dissatisfaction over the schedule of
prices adopted by the coal sales agents.
The uncertainty in regard to the dividend
upon St. Paul preferred also was a factor in
restricting purchases, and this was not re
moved until the last hour. The fluctuations in
all except a few specialties, which were gener
ally weak, were made within the narrowest
limits, and although the efforts for a decline
were persistent there was no long stock of im
portance brought out, and the net result of the
day's transactions is small fractional declines
The opening was dull but firm, and in some
cases there was but some further slight im
provement in the early trading, bnt the bears
soon renewed their pressure upon the Grangers
and Coal shares and considerable animation
was developed in them with a decidedly weak
tone, and declines reached nearly a point be
fore the downward movement met with a
check. Lackawanna, Missouri Pacific, Man
hattan and Pullman were the weak spots, al
though Reading and St. Paul led in the amount
of business done. The activity disappeared
and Chattanooga became the feature by reason
of the exceptional strength displayed, but un
til well in the afternoon the market was in
tensely dull and stagnant.
Another drive then sent St. Paul and Lacka
wanna down with Pullman, and the lowest
pnecs of the day generally were reached) in
the neighborhood ot IP. IT. A better tone pre
vailed in the last hour and St. Paul preferred
especially made a sharp rally and the close was
quiet and firm at the figures. The great ma
jority of the active shares are lower to-night,
but losses for fractional amounts only, except
in the case of Pullman, whicb is down ,
while Chattanooga rose 1 per cent
The railroad bond market was quite dull to
day. the sales of all issues aggregating only
$1,017,000, of which $100,000 were m thoTtieh
mond and Allegheny second certificates. The
tone of the dealings was generally firm, but
the change in quotations at the close are quite
irregular and generally for small fractions.

There were no sales on call. It begins to look
as if bottom was out of cereal markets. Job
bers of flour have at last been forced to yield
to the inevitable and drop prices. We reduce
our quotations 25c all along the line, and ex
pect to descend still lower unless there comes
a change in the situation before many days.
Already prices are being cut. and buyers have,
found that they can purchase below quotations.
Wholesale dealers do not like to look facts in
the face, but have at last been compelled so to
do. The truth is, prices have been shaded for
a few days. A leading jobber proposes to fur
nish the best Minnesota patents, in carload
lots, at $6 5a A lower level of prices than
onr reduced quotations is the flour outlook at

New York. March 13. Business at drygoods
was at its height m the jobbing branch of
trade, which, however, contlnnei to lack the
spirit of former seasons.buyers being very con
servative in their operations. There is no
speculative spirit shown, but the aggregate
trade is more satisfactory in volume than in
profits. Prints were selling with more freedom
because of the Fall River strike. Trade with
agents was fair on the average, though more
quiet in staple goods than usual at this period
The market, however, continues In good shape

I am satisfleu tuat Cancer is hereditary in my
family. My father died of it, a sister of my
mother died of it, and my own sister died of it.
My feelings may be imagined, then, when the
horrible disease made its appearance on my
side. It was a malignant Cancer, eating ic
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 l know that S. S. S.
cured me. Mrs. S. M. Idol.
