Harness Leather Produced Beyond
the Demand of .Trade.
All Grades of Leather Cheaper Because of
Cheap Bides.
office of fittsbueo Dispatch, 1
TUESDAY. M.rch 19, 1SS9. J
A leadine harness maker of the city who
has been familiar frith the trade for a half
century furnishes some facts pertaining to
this Important industry which it is believed
will be of interest to the reader of The Dis
patch. His view of the situation is substan
tially as follows:
- Harness leather tanners of Allegheny hare
been increasing their capacity for the past year
or two, until they are now able to turn out an
amount of stock fully double their capacity
fire j ears ago. It appears that they bare cone
somen hat beyond the demands of trade and
find themselves overstocked this spring. We
are now passing throuch what might be called
an interregnum, in other words the surplus
stock must be worked off before trade comes
to a satisfactory basis.
The harness leather trade has been develop
ing year by year, until this city has become one
of the recognized centers in this line through
out the world of commerce. Manufacturers,
having now reached out a little too far, must
wait until trade catches up, which it is fast
doing. February w as a very quiet month with
our harness makers. Since the beginning of
March there has been a decided improvement,
and all signs now point to a good spring trade.
Certain it is that Pittsburg will feel the beneSt
of a revival in harness as soon as any other
point, as her goods in this line are at a pre
mium everywhere. The products of the Alle
gheny harness leather tanneries have an ad
vantage of fully J c per pound in the world's
markets, and will, as a matter of course, be the
first to enjoy the benefit of a trade revival.
Lower Prices Expected.
For cheaper grades of harness prospects are
that this season's prices will be below anything
for a score of years. Hides have not been so
low since before the war as they have been in
recent weeks. Price of hides now is not above
one-half what it was a decade ago. The depre
ciation has affected most low grade harness
leather. The manufacturer who furnishes
these facts deals mainly in the high grade ar
ticle, his customers in the main demanding the
best in this line. In this line of harness prices
will touch a lower level this season than for
many years past. Tanners complain that not
withstanding the low price of hides competi
tion is now so sharp that margins are well nigh
wiped out. A representative of one of the
leading tanneries of Allegheny whose trade is
In soecial lines says: "Our margin of profit
is almost gone. How our competitors in New
England can keep their business going at pres
ent prices is a mystery to me. In the amount
of leather we are turning out we have an ad
vantage of 510,000 a year over those New En
gland tanneries in the matter of .hark alone.
Ana still we have all we can do at present
prices to come out even."
This statement was referred to an old-time
leathermannfacturer, who said that tanners in
the East have an advantage in the lower price
of labor which offsets the higher price of bark.
Wheat and Floor.
The current number of the Minneapolis
JUiller finds it difficult to decide between the
arguments of bulls and bears in the wheat and
flour situation. Bulls say there is no move
ment of wheat because there is none to move.
Bears say that fine seeding prospects and
breaking up of country roads are good reasons
for the light movement. Very little wheat has
been coming in from farmers' bins this month.
The JfiWer' estimate of the amount ot visible
supply of wheat east of the Rocky Mountains
is 50,000,000 bushels less than at this time last
Notwithstanding this shortage, demand con
tinues very light, and unfavorable news comes
from every quarter of the globe as to flour
At Minneapolis there was a decline of 20c
per barrel last week and 40c in the past month.
Pittsburg jobbers report that markets have
been cut here for a week or two past. The
drift of flour has been toward a lower level of
prices the world oyer the past month or two.
The unfortunates who stocked up at old rates
have in vain tried to stem the downward drift,
and even lower prices are not,improbable.

Wheat Drops Under the Influence of Re
ported Continental Selling Orders
Corn Lower Oats Barely
Steady Hob Products
Weak and Un
settled. Chicago. There was a fair trading in
wheat to-day, and the feeling consider
ably unsettled within a lower range of .prices.
Influences coreming the market were' again
mostly local. May opened a 6hade under yes
terday's closing, but advanced Jic, then de
clined 2c nnder rather free o'fferings, recov
ered lie, and closed about 1c lower than yes
terday. June closed c lower; July declined
lc, and closed c lower than yesterday.
The market started out easy, Influenced
by the continued favorable weather here
and dull and heavy cable advices. It was
noticed that there was considerable wheat on
sale at the advance, and the impression was
that a prominent local trader was the principal
seller. This, together with a denial of the
rumor alluded to about the California ship
ments to Australia and reports that there
were a good many continental selling orders
on the seaboard, caused a steady decline.
Corn ruled active, and though fluctuations
kept within a narrow range, the volume of
business in the aggregate was larger than for
several days past. The temper of the crowd
was decidedly bearish, and repeated efforts
were made to break the market Trading was
confined to the May-future largely, while the
nearer deliveries were -quite neglected at
times. The easier feeling was attributed
chiefly to large receipts, both present and
prospective. The market opened at yester
day's closing, fluctuated within a Jic range,
closing KKC lower than yesterday.
Oats were fairly active and unsettled. A
feature of the trading was the strength and ac
tivity in May and the weakness and decline in
June and July. The firmness in the former
was due to purchases by a local operator who
caused an advance of Hc, an attempt to un
load, however, resulting in a reaction and a de
cline of He followed. The latter part of the
session was marked by quietness and steadi
ness and the last sales were at nearly inside
Only a moderate trade was done in hog
products, and a weak feeling prevailed during
the greater portion of the session. Speculative
offerings were rather free early, and prices
declined materially on all the leading articles.
Later the demand improved somewhat and
prices rallied again, but settled back to about
medium figures. Near the close the feeling was
firmer, and prices advanced to outside figures,
closing steady.

The Turtle Creek Company Well
Down 1,400 Feet.
One of the Sharpest Swindles of the Age
Just Come to light.
The Turtle Creek Oil and Gas Company
is pushing the work on its well on the
Montgomery farm. The well has been
drilled to a depth of 1,400 feet, with good
indications of gas, but it will be sunk 200
feet deeper. It is -in the same belt as the
Wilklnsburgwell. The company is sanguine
of developing a regular roarer.
The real estate market continues to show
great activity. Private sales occur dally. They
include many important pieces of property
both in the city and suburbs, ana represent
large values. Sales by agents and dealers are
numerous. Auction aales are also frequent,
some very fine properties changing hands in
this wy. Values are steady, with a hardening
tendency. Fears have been expressed of a
collapse, but jt is hard to conceive of a tumble
in anything with a good cash demand to bold it
up. Beside, most of the unimproved ground
that has been sold within the past year or two
has been utilized for residence purposes, thus
practically taking it out of the market and
lessening the chances of a squeeze, of which
there is no sign on the business horizon.
There are said to be tricks in all trades. The
latest verification of the saying comes from
London. The ' fraud is very ingenious, and
shows that our English cousins can hold their
own in more ways than one with the Yankees
or any other people So tar as known the swin
dle has not been imported to this country. A
short time ago John Matthews was arraigned
before a police magistrate in London for dye
ing cloverseed. The prosecuting attorney, In
opening the case said: "The prosecution is
taken up by some of the largest seed merchants
in Mark Lane, and the reason for its being
taken up is that for many years past very great
frauds have been going on in reference more
particularly to cloverseed. If it is mixed with
old seed there is a very large diminution ot the
germinating power. Therefore it is not only a
question of defrauding the seed merchant, (be
cause of course if they could dye old cloverseed
to give it the appearance of new, they are en
abled to undersell the bona fide merchants
dealing In that article), but it is also defraud
ing the farmers who purchase from the
merchant, because when they have sown their
seed instead of coming up in the proper way it
does not come np at all. The process which lias
been adopted for a long time has been to buy
up old worn out cloverseed, and submit it to a
certain process of dyeing. This having gone on
for some time, the large merchants in the trade
made up theirfminds to pnt a stop to it." The
defendant was fined $50 and costs.
The full name of the bank, the failure of
which, in 1873, was noted in this department a
few days ago, was the Nation's Trust Company.
This statement is made to remove the impres
sion that has grown up in certain quarters
since the publication of the item that it was in
some way connected with the Nation's Bank
for Savings, Allegheny City, of which John A.
Myler is President. It was a totally different
concern as well in its business methods as in
its name. The Allegheny institntion is con

The Scarcity of Certificates Proves a God
send to tho Bnlls.
The oil market was a little stronger yester
day, caused by a scarcity of certificates. An
Oil City dispatch read: "Certificates here are
as scarce as hens' teeth." The price at the
opening was 89v From this point the market
gradually worked up to 90Jc and then
slumped, with sales at 90c This was followed
by a rally to 90c. from which it broke back to
90c and closed at 90c. But for fear of a
squeeze the market would have closed lower.
Futures were offered the same as regular. The
higher opening of stocks in New York and
more favorable news from Europe doubtless
had the Effect to sustain prices.

Stocks Rally from the Depression Caused by
Copper Flurry and Advance All Along
the Line Railroad Bonds Qnlet.
New York, March 19. There was a very
marked change in the temper of the stock
speculation to-day, and.the entire list, with the
exception of the Grangers and the Southwest
ern stocks, advanced materially, the upward
movement being steady and meeting with
hardly a check throughout the day. This was
on the revulsion of feeling from the scare of
yesterday, and although the situation abroad
may be bad enough, it Is evidently not so bad
as was reported yesterday, and the fact begins
to be apparent that there is little to be feared
from the collapse in this country.
The buying to-day was of the best character,
London leading off with liberal purchases of all
of its favorites, while Chicago did not send the
batch of disquieting reports which has been
the usual thing to do, and the shorts also cov
ered heavily in, the general list, although in
the Grangers and Southwesterns it is doubtful
if the short Interest has been reduced at all by
the transactions of the day.
The only piece of news calculated to affect
the market unfavorably was the report of the
Burlington and Quincy, which was something
worse than had been expected, and the issue
was the signal for another drive at the stocks
mentioned, although Bock Island was the
principal sufferer. Missouri Pacific was the
only strong spot among Ibe roads in that
region, and it is one of'tbe leaders in showing
a marked advance this evdning, on the report
that Mr. Gould's visit to the Southwest was, in
part, in regard to a movement to bring about
better relations among the roads in that sec
tion. The improvement among the other
stocks was very uniform and steady, although
in many cases the losses of yesterday were not
f nlly recovered.
The most pronounced gains, as usual, were
among the specialties and Manhattan, Full
man and some others, especially in the last
hour became very strong. In the last hour sev
eral specialties came to the front and the high
est prices of the day were reached in all de
partments of the list, and the market closed
active and strong at the top Azures. Every
thing on the list is higher, however, and Man
hattan rose 2; Missouri Pacific, 2; Cleveland.
Columbus, Cincinnati and Indianapolis, 1:
New England, 1: Burlington and Quincv, 1;
Atchison, 1; Chicago Gas, Canada Southern,

1 each; Pacific Mail, 1; Northwestern, 1;
St. Paul, Union Pacific, and Norfolk and West
ern preferred, 1 each; Rock Island, Pullman,
and Western Union, 1 percent each, and the
others fractional amounts.
The railroad bond market was again qnlet
and failed to respond to the strength or anima
tion m the share list. Tho sales of all issues
were only $1,235,000, but out of that amount
Denver and Bio Grande Western Assented
bonds contributed $130,000, and the Texas
Pacific second incomes $111,000. There was no
decided tone to the dealings, but fluctuations
were small, except in a few issues, and the im
portant changes are few in number and fairly
divided between gains and losses.

A Firmer Tone Slakes Its Appearance on
the Street.
Bostojt, March 19. The few 'stocks that
suffered most in the slump of the last few days
were strong and higher this morning, but bonds
and quite a number of stocks showed no im
provement. On the contrary, they took even a
lower range of prices than those reached yes
terday. In the afternoon the market developed
additional strength, with West End the special
feature in addition to the morning's favorite.
The tone at the close was quite firm, an excel
lent recovery from yesterday's decline has
been made, due in the most part, however, to
the covering by the shorts, as no Increase in

TrESDAT, March 19. 1889. $
Country Produce Jobbing Prices.
Creamery butter shows drooping tendencies
under the Influence of late balmy weather.
The same is true of eggs. Spring has made
such an early start that hens already begin to
get in their work. Dairy butter usually begins
to show up about April L As the season for
the new approaches old stock is moro and more
depressed. Eggs are now little above midsum
mer prices. Demand is light by reason of de
clining markets. Stock comes in more freely
than it goes out. The band to mouth policy is
pursued by dealers in the, present condition of
markets, when the drift is downward. Cus
tomers pursue this policy in the faith they will
be able to buy lower in a few days. Produce
men find little comfort in the situation. As
new stuff is coming in from tbe South, the old
grows weaker every day.

on call. Cereal markets give little signs of
life. The situation is in the buyers' favor all
along the line. Wheat Is a few cents above the
lowest point reached last week, but flour con
tinues easy and demand light. Jobbers who
laid in heavy stocks ot flour a month ago will
find it difficult to come out whole. In that
time there has been a drop of almost 60c per
barrel at Minneapolis. The drift is toward
lower levels in all cereal lines.
