A BOW OF PEQMISE
Spans the local Sky, Indicating That
Trade, Already Good, Will
SOON EXPERIENCE A REVIVAL.
Six Thousand Houses and 30,000 People
Added Within Three Years.
BUILDING PEOSPECTS OX A GEAND SCALE
The spring season limbers the joints of
the granger and mates him think about
doing something. "Weary of thj winter
torpor, he surreys his well-filled barns, ex
amines his haymows, makes an estimate of
the daily egg product of his chickens, looks
over his apples, potatoes and cabbages, and
casts longing glances toward the city where
tuch things are wanted at good prices in
hard cash. This means a revival of the
country trade so soon as the roads get into
good condition, which, if the weather con
done as It has begun, will not be long. Bad
roads cut him off from the market nearly all
winter, and he has plerity of stuff to sell.
Engineer Davis says the worst roads in the
State are in Allegheny county, and he is about
right. A new deal in their management is one
of the necessities of the times.
That spring is opening is shown in the large
and rapid increase in the number of new
houses that are going up and in the large
number projected. Permits for 76 were issued
the past week, at an estimated cost of SS5.928.
It is safe to say that within tlie past three
years 6,000 nouses, mostly for residence pur
poses, have been built in Pittsburg and imme
diate vicinity. These are all occupied and the
demand is not satisfied. Allowing five persons
to each bouse, a moaerate estimate, we find an
increase of 30,000 inhabitants within the period
mentioned. The growth of the city will be
much greater this year. The syndicate, of
which Messrs. Flinn, Stewart and Magee are
members, will tart in the Nineteenth ward
this year with 50 houses. They will probably
erect 300 before they are done. Another enter
prise is by an Allegheny gentleman, who pro
poses to put up 100 houses on Fenu avenue,
near Winebiddle, during the season. These
will be cheap ana will rent at a low price. This
will materially reduce the pressure for small
Pittsburg women hold their own with the
sterner sex in business affairs. Scores of them
are engaged in mercantile pursuits, where, in
many cases, large interests are involved, and
are doing well. An enterprising, energetic
lady, who occupies an office on Fourth avenue,
is making money as a solicitor for an Eastern
stationery house. Several ladies support them
selves by speculating in oil and stocks, and are
often seen flitting around th Exchange build
ing. They are generally on the bear side.
There is a silly rumor afloat to the effect that
the Mutual Life Insurance Company is dicker
ing"f or the purchase of the postoffice corner.
This property cannot be sold until Congress
passes an enabling act, and then the sale mnst
be by public outcry. Its value as a business
site will insure a lively competition for its pos
session, in which the largest purse will obtain
the prize. The report that certain individuals
have an option on it, or that it has been offered
to them on any terms, is, therefore, without
foundation in fact.
The Clearing House figures for the past
week show a large gain over those for the same
time last year, which broke all previous
records. Should the present ratio of gain be
maintained, to say nothing of a probable in
crease, lbS9 will put Pittsburg fifth or sixth
among the great commercial centers. It has
already outstripped Cincinnati, and is crowd
ing Baltimore very closely.
One of the best moderate-sized houses iu
"Wilkinsburg was sold a day or two ago for
$4,700- Two weeks before it was offered at
4,200 and refused. This sale proves two things:
That Wilkinsburg property is bracing up and
that delays are dangerous.
A good evidence of the business growth of
the city is shown in the large increase in the
number of offices. Many of the best buildings
in the city are having additional stories put on
them to supply this demand. In some of these
from 75 to 100 firms will be represented, where
as before they did business wherever they
could find desk room. This consolidation of
interests cannot but be beneficial to the public
The Boss farm, near Sharpsburg, the sale of
which was noted in this department yesterday,
will be laid ont in 200 acre lots, and put on the
market in a short time. One of the principal
movers in this enterprise is a well-known coun
ty official, whose business qualifications were
w til known before he went into politics.
A GOOD DAT P0R STOCKS.
Westlnglionae Electric Crosse the Sixty
Line Gassers Strong and Higher.
The feature of the stock market yesterday
was a further advance in Westlnghonse Elec
tric It closed rather weak on Friday, and at a
slight recession, from the highest price of the
day, mainly for the reason that the price bad
passed the limit prescribed by the orders for
the stock, but yesterday the brokers seemed to
have practially unlimited power, and they
sailed.in with such vigor as to boom the stock
to an altitude that confounded all previous
calculations. The firs: sale was made at 59.
This set the ball rolling, and the quotation con
tinued to climb skyward until 60 was reached
a gain of a dollar a share. Over 700 shares
changed hands, the most going East where
electric plants are located. After call 75 was
freely talkedot AU the passers were strong
and not pressed for sale. Chartiers was wanted

A BIG GAIN.
Bunk Clearings Nearly Three Millions
Ahead of Same Week Last Tear.
.The bank clearings the 'past week show a
gam of about $2,500,000 over the same time in
1SSS, indicating a healthful and growing con
dition of business. There was only a moderato
borrowing demand yesterday, but counter
business was active. There was no change in
discount rates, and exchange passed evefi with
currency. A better demand for money in the
country has curtailed the flow cityward, and
funds are not accumulating so rapidly as
earlier in the month. The Ifew York bank

FUN IN OIL.
Irrepressible Brokers Make the Most of a
The oil market was rather tame yesterday,
business lacking animation, and prices moving
within very narrow limits. This gave the boys
opportunity to indulge their fun-loving pro
clivities, and they wound up the session with a
sort of song and dance that was an agreeable
diversion from the monotony of the regular
proceedings. The market opened at 91c hied
around that figure for some time, and then
gradually sold ud to 9IJia It then slumped
and closed at 91 c Oil was loaned at 15 cents
to flat, showing no particular scarcity. Puts
and calls traded on narrow margins, from c
to Jic The bearish character of the New York
bank statement had a more or less depressing
effect upon the market. Fifteen minutes after
the close 25 cents was bid to have oil carried.
While the situation at home and abroad is;un
deniably bullish, the action of the power be
hind the throno is too uncertain to justify the
prediction of an advance, and the result proba
bly will be that prices will hang around tho
present level for some time to come. A mate
rial slump under existing circumstances seems
to be the outcome of the question.

The Bolls Capture Wall Street and De
moralize the Stock Market Recent
Gains Partly Lost Rnilroad
Bonds Dall and Lower.
New Yobk, March 23. The stock market to
day was an extremely limited affair, and out
side of the movements in three or four stocks
the dealings were entirely devoid of interest
The trading, as usual of late, was confined for
the most part to the scalping operations of the
traders, and as the dullness invited a turn upon
the short side prices v, ere sagged off slowly,
with insignificant fluctuations in all except
Chicago Gas, Burlington, Chesapeake and Ohio
first and Pullman, the range of prices in no
other stock reaching as much as J per cent.
Chicago had some selling orders in the market
and London bought a few of its specialties, but
the operations of the traders kept the market
in a feverish state throughout. The general
expectation of an unfavorable bank statement
aided in depreciating prices, and the announce
ment of a loss in reserve of over a million and
a quarter proved to have been fully discounted.
First prices were fairly steady as compared
with those of last evening, and some strength
was shown for a short time in the early trading,
when everything but Burlington was carried up
above tbo opening figures. The decline soon
began, however, and Chicago Gas and Burling
ton took the lead, each losing a point Full
man was the only strong feature of the list
There was a better tone toward the end of the
session, but the market closed dull and heavy
generally at slight fractional losses. Closing
prices are Irregular bnt generally lower, and
while Pullman rose TM, Chesapeake and Ohio
first preferred lost 1 and Chicago Gas and
Burlington IK Per cent each.
Tho dealings in railroad bonds were on a
parallel with those in shares, being small and
devoid of feature for most of tho issues dealt
in. The sales reached only $459,000. Tho issues
of the Tennessee Coal and Iron Company were
the weak spot in the list but although the gen
eral tone of the market was firm, tho majority
of the important chances are in the direction
of lower prices. The losses include Tennessee
Coal, Tennessee division 63 2, at 96. The sales
for the week were 57,403,000, against $8,507,000
for last week.

A Bulge in Wheat, Accompanied by Great
Excitement nnd Henvy Trodlns HsT
Products Active and Higher A
Chicago Tho operations in wheat to-day
would have been regarded as wonderful but for
the fact that for range of prices and intensity
of feeling it fell far below yesterday. The mar
ket opened excited, with May Belling at SI 04
to $1 05 the tlrst few minutes, after which that
future was neglected, and the tip was out to
take Jnly. While the deferred futures were be
ing picked up freely, the shorts' scare again
broke out in May. The price had eased off to
$1 04, and started up with a rush which ended
at $107. June sold at 9bJic to $100, and July
at SSJe to 90c. Following the bulge there was
big selling of May.
The clique houses are closely watched, and
no heavy selling was traced directly, but there
seemed no doubt that Falrbank wheat went
out above 107 quite freely. At the same time
reports of rain where most needed were wired
from the Bouthwest, and the fever to buy July
was quickly over, and the price went off from
before 1 P. M. June dropped back from $1 to
99c During the last hour of the session May
wheat held around $1 05 until just before the
close, when it went down to $1 04, closing at
$1 04. June closed at 8Sc
Corn was fairly active and firm early and
quiet and easier later. The market opened at
about the closing prices of yesterday, was firm
and advanced He on covering by shorts. Influ
enced some by the strength ot wheat Offerings
became larger at the advance, the agcregate
:ame larger at me ouvanue, iuo asKicjiw
ng sufficient to more than satisfy tbo de
nd, and the market reacted, declining c.
clesinp same as vesterdav.
The market for hog products exhibited con
siderable strength during the greater part of
the day, and prices ruled higher on all the
leading speculative articles. When the ex
treme figures were reached the offerinrs were
enlarged somewhat and prices receded.
Toward the close the feeling was stronger, and
prices were again forced to outside figures.
Prices receded slightly, but the market closed
Oats took a slight bulge early to-day in sym
pathy with wheat May opened at 25Kp and
closed at 25c. June sold at 25c and 25c.

In need of Household Furnishing Goods of any description that he is in a posi
tion to save them money. How so? Because we sell goods at a lower price than
same quality of goods can be bought elsewhere for. You must not forget that
where the would-be large houses pay anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 rent, we
pay but a moderate 51,600, although out store is as large (if not larger) as the
largest, while we know that onr goods are the best oar prices the lowest. It is s
great deal easier to save money by judicious buying than it is to save it out of
your weekly or monthly wages.
