Full Eeturns of the Week's Transac

Bheep and Lambs Livelier To-Day Than
for Month's Past.
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch, "
Thursdat. April 4, 18sa i
With returns all in it appears that
through receipts of cattle were about 200
head less and local receipts 260 more than
last week. Markets were blow at last week's
prices. Some dealers report a decline of 5c to
10c. Nice, tidy light cattle closed strong at
prices of a week ago.
Tbe most marked feature of the cattle mar
kets this week has heen the active demand for
stockers and feeders, of which there were not
enough to go around. Bayers were plenty from
neighboring counties. The supply of stockers,
which consisted ot 12 or 14 loads, was far below
demand. There was some complaint that tbe
quality was not quite up to tbe standard. High
grade stockers would hare found plenty of cus
tomers at outside rates. There were very few
bnncbes of prime heavy cattle in the offerings
this v eck. Butchers appear to want nothing
above 1.200 pounds.
Anything that goes above 8Jc finds slow sale
this reason. A few loads of prime cattle
weighing close to 1,400 pounds were sold at
H la The heaviest that could be traced in
this -ek's supplies weighed 1,400 pounds.
There were very few of this grade, and the
price was 4Uc. Heavy bulls are a drug in the
market. Calves were in large supply, but de
mand was unexpectedly large, and prices held
up well to rates of last week, with 4c to 4Jc
as the range.
Sheep and Lambs.
Supply was greater than demand up to to
day, t ben the markets became at once excited
owing to reports lrom Chicago, St. Louis and
Buffalo of short supply. It seems that farmers
in the West are holding back their sheep for
clipping, and live stock markets begin to feel
the eflVct in greater activity. The boom only
reached Liberty to-day. and everything was
cleaned up at an advance of 10 to 15c on yes
terday's prices. Holmes fc Laffertysold two
loads of SS-poundeia this morning at $4 35 and
a half dozen more loads would have found
readv customers at the same figures.
Saul a leading dealer: "Markets for sheep
have been lower this week at Pittsburg than
any place in the country. The excited condi
tion of markets to-day is simply due to the fact
that we have wakened up to the situation.
Prices have been a strong quarter higher in
Chicago, Buffalo and St. Louis all the week
than here until to-day."
Markets are 5 to 10c stronger to-day than yes
terday. The run has been light all the week,
and everything sold as fast as it appeared. The
price of tops in Chicago to-day is S4 90. At
Liberty S5 25 is the outside figure. Yesterday
nothing brought over So 15.
In general cattle markets are about a fair
stand off to those of last week, which were an
improvement on markets for a nnmber of
weeks previous. Sheep and hogs are much
more active at an advance in prices.

Wheat Takes a Tumble, the May Option
Leading tbe Procession Operator
Pnzzled Corn and Oats
Stronger Hog Prod
act Easier.
CHICAGO Whatever the opinion as to the
future market there was one thing certain to
day, and that was somebody was selling wheat
very freely. Trading was quite active and the
leeling unsettled. Prices, although reaching a
higher range early, finally went down with a
rush. May wheat opened firm, and soon sold
at figures nearly 4c above yesterday's closing,
then started off, declining rapidly and reached
a figure 6Jc below top prices paid early, and
closed about 2Jc lower than yesterday.
It is impossible to give any reasons for these
sharp changes other than manipulation and the
changing of views of speculators on the pos
sible doings of some of the large traders. Con
siderable interest is manifested in May, and
the trading evidently puzzled operators more
than ever. July opened firm and advanced c,
then declined under rather steady offerings to
sell, and prices receded IJfc, ruled steady and
closed about c lower than yesterday.
" Corn ruled rather quiet most ot the session,
though there were periods of temoorary activ
ity. The prevailing feeling was one of firm
ness. The market opened at yesterday's clos
ing prices, was steady for a time, then became
easier, declining HC recovered, ruled
steady and closed a shade higher than yester
day. A firmer feeling developed in oats, and a
large business transpired. There was less pres
sure to sell, and tbe buying by several large
houses caused an advance of ic A slight re
cession followed the appreciation, but tbe
close was quiet at nearly the Bame as yesterday.
Less business was transacted in mess pork
than for several days past. Opening sales were
madeat57c decline, and a further reduc
tion of 5c was submitted to. Later the feeling
was steadier, and prices rallied 1517c but
not fully supported to the close.
Very little was doing in lard. Prices were
without material change.
A comparatively light trade was reported in
short ribs, and the market was easier, prices
about 2c lower, closing quiet.

New Yore, April 4. Trade was fair with
johbers toJday in dryrods. There are but few
Western buyers now in tl e market, but a good
miny from nearby sections. Demand con
tinues conservative and business not as good as
desired. Agents are doing a more moderate
business There is no speculative demand for
cotton goods, but supplies are in good shape
and prices are unchanged.

St. Louis Receipts are extremelylight, and
a few small lots of new clip coming forward
have not been sufficient to give any indication
of opening prices.
Catarrhal Dangers.
To be freed from the dangers of suffocation
while lying down; to breathe freely, sleep
soundly and undisturbed; to rise refreshed,
head clear, brain active and free from pain or
acbe; to know that no poisonous, putrid matter
defiles the breath and rots away the delicate
machinery of smell, taste and hearing; to feel
that the system does not, through its veins and
arteries, suck up the poison that Is sure to un
dermine and destroy, is indeed a blessing be
yond all other human enjoyments. To pur
chase immunity from such a fate should be the
object ot all afflicted. Bnt those who have
tried many remedies and physicians despair of
relief or cure.

phase ot Catarrh, from a simple head cold to
the most loathsome and destructive stages. It

Removal of Bodies From the Ceme
tery a Good Financial Stroke.
Some Points on PittsDurg Bank Buildings,
Past, Present and to Come.
There is a good demand for lots in fhe
Kennedy plan on Nunnery Hill, Allegheny
City, since it has become a certainty that
the bodies in the adjacent cemetery will be
removed. This work is now in progress.
The removal is to a new cemetery on the
Ferrysville road. One of these lots, No. 83,
was sold yesterday by "W. A. Herron &
Sons for $750. They are well located, and the
probability is that they will all he taken in a
short time.
The fact that there is not a vacant business
house in the central part of the city is a re
liable indication that there is money in trade,
and that fears of depression entertained by the
growlers are without substantial foundation.
It is not often that there is a scarcity of busi
ness houses in a city the size of Pittsburg; and
it would not'prevail here if capitalists were
awake to their interests. Trade would rapidly
expand if there were places in which to accom
modate it Within the past month several
gentlemen desirous of going into business here
were compelled to abandon tbe project on ac
count of their inability to secure houses. The
widening of Diamond street would go far
toward removing this pressure. It would soon
become one of the principal business thorough
fares of tbe city.
Pittsburg bank buildings are noted more for
sol&ity than architectural display, and yet
some' of them present a very attractive appear
ance. The, Dollar Savings Bank, the Bank of
Pittsburg, the Exchange National Bank and
the Farmers' Deposit Bank are good examples
of tbe various styles of architecture which they
represent, being more or less of the composite
order, the Corinthian, the Doric and the Gothic
predominating. Within a year three more ele
gant bank buildings will be added to the list
those of the National Bank of Commerce, the
German National and the Keystone Bank.
They will embody many new ideas in archi
tecture, and be, perhaps, the most elegant
structures of the kind in the city. Improve
ment in this direction is not only gratifying to
local pride, but it is an evidence that the bang
ing business is in the high tide of prosperity.
The building in the triangle, between Fifth
avenue, Market and Liberty, occupied by M r.
Patterson, the florist, was, along in the forties,
leased to Mr. Kaln, the Penn avenue batter,
for a term of years at an annual rental of $225,
and the landlord was very glad to get a good
tenant at those figures. The rent along that
square is now measured by thousands instead
of hundreds.
Buildings on the hill along the Pennsylvania
Railroad, between Union station and Law
renceville, are in danger. The hill has been
dug away so much as to leave them very little
solid ground to rest upon. The hill is almost
perpendicular in. some places, and at others
has a 50 or 60 degree slope. A heavy rain
such as may be expected in the spring might
cause a landslide and precipitate a score of
buildings thus situated to the bottom, causing
great loss of life. To be forewarned is to be
Tbe Subject of improving the condition of
the highways of the country, and especially of
the country roads, says JSradslreel't, is attract
ing a degree of attention which the most en
thusiastic agitators of the question havehardly
dared to expect. In Pennsylvania very Intelli
gent work has been done, and a number of bills
are now before the Legislature for considera
tion. It seems reasonable to conclude that be
fore the subject is allowed to pass out of public
attention some important steps- will have been
taken in the direction of improving the coun
try's road system.
And Takes a Fresh Start in the Upward
Westinghouse Electric was stronger and
fairly active yesterday, being helped by a con
siderable number of buying orders, only a
small part of which were placed. The advance
was generally accepted as a natural reaction
from the previous day's depression, as there
was no change in the condition of tbe company.
The report of tbe existence of a pool to buy
tbe stock at 56 or under was denied, besides
being disproved by daily transactions on
'Change. Philadelphia Gas was strong and
dull, transactions being nil. Switch about held
its own. It seems to havo temporarily dropped
out of the speculative' market. Tractions were
about steady. La Nona was firm at $2 on a re
port that tbe mill had begun operations. Total
sales at both calls were 580 shares. Bids and

As anticipated the oil market sold off yester
day, and It was thought the bottom bad not
heen reached. It opened at 91 and soon- de
clined to 90. It then reacted to 91K. About
an hour before tbe close It was struck by a cold
wave and tbe price shrunk to 90Ji, which was
the final quotation a decline of 1 from the
opening. There was plenty of oil to go round.
Carrying was 10 cents to flat. Trading was
moderate. Opinion as to whether the market

the bears. ,,

Causes a Feeling of Hesitancy In the Stock
Market A Rally and Advances All
Alone the, Line Bonds
More Active. . .
New York. April 1 The stock market 'to
day, after some hesitation in the forenoon, be
came more active and -decidedly strong, and
advances were scored all over the list, everv-
thing sharing in the improvement. The result
of tbe day s trading is to leave almost every
thing materially higher than la3t evening. Tbe
feeling this morning was generally in favor of
an advance, but the views of President Roberts
reported from Pittsburg, created a feeltng-of
hesitancy, and the buying in tbe market did
not assume large proportions until later in the
day, when the interview with Mr. Sage and his
confident utterances about Missouri Pacific
were published, and notwithstanding that he
denied that Mr. Qould was seeking an entrance
into tbe Atchison directory the street attri
buted tho rise in Missouri Pacific nd that
stock to purchases for Gould account.
The news of the day was not of a character
specially to affect values, but the announce
ment that Mr. Walker had arrived at his office
In Chicago and would soon begin work bad a
favorable influence. Missouri Pacific, Atchi
son, Burlington and Reading absorbed most of
tbe interest in the dealings, but the other
Grangers and Coalers were not neglected, es
pecially in the latter portion of the day. The
weak feature was Chicago Gas. which declined
about a point in the face of the strength shown
by the rest of the list. The opening was quiet
and somewhat irregular; but generally from
H to per cent higher than last evening's
quotations, while Northern Pacific preferred
was exceptional with a rise of- f per cent.
The buying of Missouri Pacific began soon
after the opening, and it got up nearly a point
before the pressure upon th4 rest of the list
affected it, but everything else except Atchi
son fell to a sbaoe below tbe opening prices.
The gain in Missouri Pacific was finally lost,
after which the market remained quiet, al
though tbe list began to move up again im
mediately and before noon Missouri Pacific
had touched 70, a gam of 1 per cent, which
proved to be its best price for the day. After
12 o'clock a general upward movement was in
augurated which gathered strength as tbe day
wore along and the market behaved more like
a genuine bull market than at any previous
time this year. Before delivery hour the
highest prices of the day generally weio
reached and Jhe Grangers were specially con
spicuous and St. Paul rose a point. Atchison
tnok the lead in the last hour and rose -sharply.
The market closed quiet but firm generally at
about tbe best prices of the day.
Railroad bonds were a little more active, and.
In sympathy with the improved feeling In
shares, were more decidedly strong. There was
very lltfle jspecial feature to the dealings, 'but
Reading first Incomes were active, and con
tributed $103,000 to the day's total of $1,487,000,
while Texas Pacific issues were remarkably
strong. The Denver assented bonds were dull
to-day. and sluezisb. Tbe principal advances
were Ohio and Mississippi consols sinking fund
IK to 117K, and Great Western seconds receipts
2 to 92.

THUBSDAT, April 4. 1889. S
Country Prodnce Jobbing Prices
Butter, eggs and cheese show greater activity
and firmness than for some weeks past. Tbe
first sign of Lent which cheese markets have
given appeir in the past day or two in the in
creased demand. A leading jobber reports re
ceipts of 70 tubs of Ohio creamery butter this
morning, and not a tub was left soon after
noon. General produce is still in the dumps.
Farmers grow firmer in their demands, but
commission men cannot see it The trouble is
more stuff is offered than wanted, and the
producer cannot maintain his firmness. Tbe
nearness of new vegetables depresses markets
more and more. It is bard to find a produce
commission merchant who Is not blue over the
outlook of trade.
