THE CATTLE REVIVAL ON MONDAY
licked Staying Qualities, and Price Back
to Old Figure.
SHEEP TEKT SLOW, HOGS STEADY
OFFICE OF PITTSBURG DISPATCH, I
THURSDAY. Mrch21, 1SS9. j
Through receipts of cattle last week were
the largest for six months past. As will be
seen by the accompanying report through
receipts this week were little above one
half of last week. It appears that there is
aKo a decline in local receipts of 240 head, as
compared with last week. The light run and a
special order ironi Baltimore for export cattle
served to stimulate markets on Monday, and
Drices advanced 10 per cent oh export grades.
Tie advance did not hold after the special
oraer was filled. Markets drifted back to last
week's figures and remain there up to date.
Outside of the sales referred to there has been
no impi ovement in prices. For good butcher
and shipping cattle, weighing MOO pounds and
upward the highest price paid was S4 20. This
price was paid for a few bunches of export cat
tle on special order. As good cattle were sold
on Tuesday a shade below Si 00. The revival
reported on Monday was lacking in staying
qualities. As the season advances Teal calves
come in more freely and prices are tending
toward a lower level.
In last eek's report the range of prices was
56Ja There has. been a drop of lc from these
figures, and slow markets at reduction. A
leading live stock firm tends out the following
statement of the cattle situation to customers;
"Receipts, 20 carloads less than last week: mar
ket stroncer at about 10c advance on nice light
Full returns show that nearly 2,000 more hogs
were received this week than last. Demand
has been fully np to supply. Receipts to-day
were only four or five loads. A leading dealer
reports that five times as many wouig nave
found ready sale. Yorkers sold to-day at S3 00
5 05. The same grade at Chicago were quoted
at $4 To. At these hgures our packers are able
to do better at Chicago than at Liberty. This
lias been the complaint all this season, that
Drices here have been held up too high.
The difference between here and Chicago
should not be more than 15 to 20c per cwt. One
of our packers said: "The East LiDerty dealers
have been standing in their own light this
season. We have procured most of our sup
plies from the West, but would have been glad
to buv at home if we could have done as well
The drift of hog products is upward. Mess
pork is 15c higher than closing prices of yester
day. Lard too has advanced slightly and is
The signs are that hog products have touched
bottom and that from now on better prices will
There is nothing bright in the sheep situa
tion. Receipts this week vary scarcely any from
. Markets Sluggish.
Markets have been sluggish all the week, and
prices are off 25c per hundred. The outside
figure for choice wethers is SI 90 and it is likely
that a cash customer would do even better.
The stock firm quoted above sent out the
following statement to customers yesterday:
'Supply of sheen liberal and market very bad.
Buyers are holding off owing to unfavorable
sews from the East. From all indications we
do not look for any good in the sheep market
for the balance of the week."

A Sharp Knlly In meat. May Option
Leading the Procession Corn Easy
and Oats Stronger Hog
Prodncts Still Unsettled.
Chicago The wheat market developed
more life and animation to-day and trading
was active, centuring principally In May. The
ieeling was nervous and unsettled, and for
May delivery prices scored a sharp advance,
while the more deterred futures followed only
to a slight extent. May opened lHc higher
and advanced, with some fluctuations, 2f c, de
clined ljgc. ruled firm, and closed about So
higher than yesterday. June advanced 2c and
closed 2c higher. July advanced lc, declined
recovered some and closed about c higher
The feeling has been bearish of late, and the ,
market, no doubt, was an oversold one. Yes
terday there were symptoms of a tightening of
the market, and to-day when the shorts under
took to cover they found but little wheat for
sale. Active covering caused the advance, but
at the top there was more disposition to realize,
and the offerings became heavy enough to cause
tbo reaction noted.
Corn ruled comparatively quiet most of the
session, though at times It exhinited moderate
activity. The prevailing feeling was one of
steadiness, with occasional periods of tern-
Eorary firmness. The market opened a shade
igher than the closing prices of yesterday,
fluctuated within Je)c range and closed about
the same as yesterday.
In oats a stronger feeling developed, due to
the sharp advance in wheat. Offerings at the
start were small, and prices easily advanced
Kc The appreciation brought out a liberal
number of sellers, but as the eager buyers had
been filled up and no new orders arrived, a
weaker feeling developed and all of the ad
vance was lost.
Rather an active business was transacted in
pork early in the day and prices ruled some
what irregular. Prices were 1215c higher
than the closing figures of yesterday. Later
the market ruled easier, and prices receded
22f25a and the market closed rather tame at
about medium figures. Lard and short ribs
followed the same general course.

An Order for Several Thousand Just

WORKING A REALESTATE MYSTERY
Revival of the Sorghum Industry That
JTaj Help Western Pennsylvania.,
MOVEMENTS IN STOCKS AND PETROLEUM
The fragrant and economical toby, so dear
to the heart of the Pittsburg smoker, is to
be given a trial in Mexica, an Allegheny
City manufacturer having received an order
from Tampic for several thousand, as an
experiment. This is the beginning of what
may develope into a large trade in this
luxury. Who" kuows but' the toby may
take the place of the cigarette in the affec
tions of the fair senoritas of the land of the
Unless signs go for naught, something un
usual transpired in the real estate market yes
terday. Persistent pumping failed to elicit
any information as to the significance of the
movement, but nobody denied that something
big was in the air. One delegation of dealers
took observations on Diamond street and held
mysterious consultations afterward. A prom
inent capitalist was one of the party, and was
very eloquent in stating or explaining some
thing. One of the oldest dealers on Fourth
avenue paid a hurried visit to the East End,
accompanied by a stranger, and another went
over to the Southside, where he was closeted
for some time with an iron manufacturer.
That something was up was certain, but what
it was, and is, is as much of a puzzle as the
authorship of the letters of Junius.
The new stories added to the Lewis block
contain 1U0 rooms. Although not completed,
it is said that all of them have been engaged
for offices at good prices. Property in that lo
cality is in demand at $3,500 afoot, and one or
two deals at those figures are in progress. Tbe
average price for property on Fifth avenue,
between Grant and Market, is about $5,000
There are 110 Iron bridges in the county
making (excluding half lengths of three Inter
county bridges) 6,554.3 lineal feet, or one and
twenty-two hundredths miles of iron super
structures. These bridges were erected at a
cost of, in round numbers, $280,000. If the
county roads were in as good shape as the
bridges, it would be better for the business of
Pittsburg. As it is, it is impossible at certain
seasons of the year to haul farm products to
the city. Farmers have good cause to kick
against this neglect of their interests.
A Butler county farmer, just from Kansas,
said yesterday, that the manufacture of sugar
from sorghum cane is becoming an important
industry in that State. The production last
year was 800,000 pounds of sugar and 300.000
gallons of molasses both of superior1 quality.
Before the war sorghum was extensively culti
vated in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, and was a
profitable crop. Why it was abandoned has
not been satisfactorily accounted for. The But
ler county granger thinks so highly of sorghum
that he proposes to devote several acres to its
cultivation this season. Sorghum has been
grown to some extent in Western Pennsylva
nia, but seems to have been given up. It is too
valuable a crop to be ignored.
According to a correspondent of the Phila
delphia Record, oil land in thistate is becom
ing very scarce, and territory which is at all
promising is being steadily bought up. The
great oil fields of Butler, Clarion. Venango,
Warren and McKean counties are now worked
exclusively for "second crop wells," that is to
say, small wells In old territory that a few years
ago would hardly be accepted as wells at all.
Washington connty continues to be tho richest
picking for the oil hunter, and the deep and
expensive drilling is no discouragement to
him. The most activity In the matter of work
ing over an old field is in Venango county,
where the drill is bobbing in almost every

Ho Transactions In Electric A Boom in
Wheeling and Chanters Gas.
Westinghouse Electric was dull and weaker
yesterday, it being almost impossible to get a
bid on it. Someone finally picked up courage
to offer 5, but it was declined with thanks.
There were no, transactions fn this stock on
'Change, but Henry M. Long" disposed of 25
shares at private sale at the price quoted
above Both ins and outs seem to be waiting to
see if it possesses staying qualities, and can be
maintained at its present altitude. The feature
of the day was the strength and activity of
Wheeling and Chartiers Gas, both scoring
handsome advances. It is expected that the
former will pay dividends pretty soon, while
the latter is said to be getting in good shape.
Philadelphia was down, the last sale being
made at 36. Switch and Signal was higher
and strong, while tractions were weaker.

Their Theory That Bnslness Lacks Tim
Disproved by Reliable Flcnres.
The Clearing House report yesterday Indi
cated a largo volume of business, sufficient to
refute the opinion entertained by a few croak
ers that trade grows worse instead of better,
and showing a material advance over the same
period last year, which was considered the best
in tliehistory of tbe city. The exchanges were
$2,271,696 3L and the balances $356,073 16. Dis
counting was rather light, but counter business
was up to the average. Small notes, which
were scarce a few days ago, were in sufficient
supply for current demands. Currency and ex
change were about even.

A BIG MISTAKE.
The Longs In OH Suffer From Bclne Too
Those who had been on the long side of the
oil market for several days, being charmed
with the idea of getting their stuff carried flat
or with a premium, and "being confident that
the market would not sell down, failed to take
advantage of a spurt f 92Jc yesterday and
still have It on their hands, besides paying 25c
to SOe to get it carried. The conrse of the
market demonstrated that although the situa
tion may look bullish, the time has not arrived
when the price can be permanently advanced
to a higher level.
The market opened at 91c, soon advanced c,
and then declined to 90c It then sold up
gradually to 92Kc, for no particular reason,
and held at about that figure until near the
close, when it weakened and sold down at
90Jc soon rallying a trifle, however, clos
ing at 91c, tbe same as the opening. Au in
cident that occurred during tho afternoon
aptly illustrates the uncertainty of the trade
and the liability of the shrewdest operators to
make mistakes. One of them bought 5,000
barrels at 92c. He refused to unload it at the
advance of He feeling confident of doing
better. In a few minutes the break came, and
he sold out at a loss of $12.

New York, March 2L The stock market
"was quiet to-day. hut there was further progress
made in the improvement started day before
yesterday, and while the fluctuations and final
changes in most of the list are not large, al
most everything shows a gain to-night. The
foreigners were not a factor in the, market
to-day, the margin of profit between the two
markets precluding any extended operations,
but Chicago was a conspicuous purchaser, and
the local traders furnished the remainder of
the business done. The Gould following were
confident that their chief wonld return to New
York a bull, and Missouri Pacific and Manhat
tan were again on tbe upward track, and in
the general list it early became evident that
there was no lack of support for the leading
There was an attempt to break the Grangers
again in the early trading, and Burlington did
display considerable weakness, being, in fact,
the weak spot in the list, but the others were
firmly held and tbe attempt was given up. Tbe
purchasing for the long account later became
more pronounced, prices beginning to creep up
under the increased demancLearly sellers began
to cover and the movement became strong and
reached to all portions of the list. The trading
In Chicago Gas was again on a large scale, but
it failed to reach the volume of business done
in the stock yesterday. The strength, how
ever, continued undiminished, and a material
advance was scored over the high figures of
The opening figures wero steady, but the at
tack upon the list was begun immediately, and
everything but Chicago Gas sagged off, with
Rock Island and Atchison in the lead, but they
were soon followed and overtaken byBurling
tou, which droobed over a point The strength
of the decline was broken before noon, how
ever, and while there was not so much trading,
prices began to improve, but it was not until
well Into the afternoon that the demand be
came titrable, and before 2 p. ir.,when the best
flgureSrgenerally were reached. Everything
Was fractionally better than the opening, and
Manhattan, Oregon Navigation and Chicago
Gas were materially higher.
Realizations sagged tbe list off in the last
hour, but no marked impression was made
upon the gains of the previous two hours, and
the close was firm though quiet, generally at
fractional advances for the day. The declines
were very few and unimportant but Naviga
tion rose 1; Chicago Gas, 1, and Manhat
Railroad bonds were again fairlv active, and
the sales of all issnes aggregated $1,600,000, out
of which the Chicago Gas and Coke firsts,
which were the special feature of the day, con
tributed $281,000, aud after opening up 2 at 95,
declined to 93J. and afterward fluctuated rap
idly between the two extremes, finally closing
at 9 a net gain of IJi percent The other
active issues were Denver and Rio Grande,
Western assented, with $158,000: Reading 6s,
$133,000, and the first incomes, $101,000. The
general list showed the usual lack of feature
or marked movements, and while there was
still a firm tone the changes are generally for
fractional amounts only. Utah Southern gen

Country I'rodoce Jobbing Prices.
Bottom is clear out of egg market Not for
many a year have prices been as low this early
in the season. Job-lots were sold yesterday at
12c, and there are produce men to-day who
would be glad to unload at 12c At the Pan
handle freight depot there were in the neigh
borhood of 3.000 cases yesterday from Tennes
see on which there will be a loss to Pittsburg
dealers of not less than 2c per dozen at present
prices. The trouble with the trade is that
home hens have been doing such good work In
the past few weeks of balmy weather. Produce
men seem fated this season to be losers to the
last. Old vegetable stock is being displaced by
new. The garbage pile is absorbing the ex
pected profits ou onions and apples. And now
the early spring weather comes In to blast
hopes of profit on hen fruit and dairy products.
Verily, the winter and spring of.l8S9 have been
thoroughly disappointing to produce men,
whether on the farm or in the warehouse.
