fAn Empty -Business House on Liberty
, Proves a Drawing Card.
Pittsttrg Steadily Forging Ahead in. the
Race for Material Supremacy.
. au
A -"to let" posted on the -door ot a good
business house on Liberty street, near the
foot of Smithfield, yesterday attracted con
siderable attention on account of its rarity,
such a thing being almost unknown in that
locality. It is safe to say that it trill not
remain empty many hours. If there is any.
thine more urgently needed in PittsDurg than
another, it is bnslness houses.
The annual trace agitation of the iron
workers has been put in motion, and is already
proving a disturbing element in business. TaV.
lug this for a text, a prominent gentleman said
yesterday: This agitation is not only costly to
the men, but harmful to the public It keeps
everything unsettled for to or three months
every year, with nothing substantial to show
for it. I don't blame the men for trying to get
a fair compensation for their services, for their
work is bard and exacting, but I think they
could adopt a better plan than that npon
which they are now acting to accomplish
their end. In my opinion the sliding
scale of wages is the best remedy
yet suggested to regulate the wage
question, bnt it should be made so broad and
clastic in Its provisions as to cover a series of
J ears. It wonld render constant agitation
unnecessary and secure satisfactory results to
the workman, whose compensation would be
based upon the market prices of the products
of their toll. What could be fairer! Of course,
this is not a new idea, but I think its impor
tance has been overlooked. While always
maintaining-that labor, which is t the bottom
of our prosperity, should be sufficiently pro
tected and liberally compensated, I seriously
doubt if the right steps are being taken to
elevate it to the dignity and importance which
justly attach to it. It should betaken out of
the sphere of perennial agitation and placed up
on a basis which w ould remove it from the vicis
situdes and dangers ot financial crisis and over
production. I thinkatbe adoption of the sliding
scale, under wise restrictions, and covering a
series of years, would bring this about! There
would then be no need for costly conventions
every year and the mill owners would be shut
out from using trumped np stories of depres
sion of trade to intimidate their workmen."
If anybody has a lot for sale, all 'he has to do
to secure a customer for it is to let the fact be
known. A week or t o ago a gentleman who
owned a few acres just above Edgew ood, laid
off a part of it in lots and advertised them for
sale, through a well-known Fourth avenue
agency. This brought forth a small army of
purchasers and the prospects are that every
lot will be taken before the end of the week.
This is satisfactory evidence that there is no
abatement in the demand for real estate.
In addition to the large sums of money that
are being disnursed by the city banks in the
way of loans, investments in mortgages, etc., it
is stated that considerable has been borrowed
in New York recently by local manufacturers
at a low rate of interest. This money has gone,
or will go, into businesses of various kinds. In
deed, some of the results of tins movement are
already visible in the well filled stores, the in
creased activity in nearly all branches of trade,
the new buildings on almost every street, and
the busy scenes evi rywhere that are the won
der of stransers all of which goes to show tha
Pittsburg is holding its own, and more, in the
struggle for material supremacy. To occupy a
position above Baltimore, Cincinnati and New
Orleans is something to be proud of, but we
will soon do better, and take precedence of St.
Louis and San Francisco. Pittsburg has just
fairly started on her career of conquest
An old colored man who lives in an adjoining
county has an eye to creature comforts as well
as business. He recently obtained a pension
for services in the Civil "War, and considerable
back pay the whole amounting to several
thousand dollars. He bought a honse and lot
and pnt the rest of his money, excepting about
S1Q, in bank. He invested all of his reserve
capital in whisky, took it home, locked his
house and was not seen for several days. When
be emerged from his retirement he was in a
very dilapidated condition. Meeting a neigh
bor, he said: "I'll jis tell you all 'bout it, boss.
Yon see I never had as much whisky as I could
drink, and wben I got dat money I jis 'eluded
to have one big spree. I put down $10 worth
of whisky fast as I could. It tasted better
than honey. Butl'se done now. I don't want
no more. I'll never take another spree. I'se
eh orn off." He has kept his word so far.
A Stronc nnd Active Mnrkct. With Some
Phenomenal Advances.
Yesterday was a bull day at the Stock Ex
change, most of the favorites being active and
higher. Philadelphia Gas was boomed by a
big well in the Bellevernon district, selling up
to 40 here and 41 in New Vork, and closing
firm at top prices. Chartlers Gas was another
strong spot, scoring a sharp advance on favor
able reports of the condition of the company.
Electric was conspicuous for activity and
strength, indicating a revival of the interest in
the stock. Citizen's Traction was hid up to
72, but there was no anxiety to unload it at
that price. The other tractions were dnll and

The Local Money Mnrkct Oat of the Rat for
the brason.
That there is an active movement in the local
money market is proved by the large Clearing
House reports of the past few days. Yester
day the exchanges were $2,433,882 21 and the
balances 5763.147 74. This indicates a greater
revival of business than the city gets credit
for There was a fair amount of paper offered
for'discount, and the counter business waa
above the average. Bankers expressed confi
dence that they had seen the last of dull times
for this season. ,

Oil Takes a Tumble nnd Opens Up New
The break in the oil market yesterday of 1J
cents was no surprise, as it had been looked for
for some time. There was nothing to hold it
up; therefore the only thing for It to do was to
move down. It opened at 89Jc and held
around that point for seteral hours, selling at
90c several times. During the first part of the
last hour there were a rew sales at S9Jc. In the
last 20 minutes the market began to weaken
and broke near the close with sales at ESc,
closing with a few small transactions at SSHc
amid a babel of noises in strange contrast to
the usual quiet of the room. .
Commenting on the situation a broker said:
"At last the break anticipated for some time
his come, and is likelv to carry prices around
85c, near which point I look for the market to
hold for some time, with oil plenty and rates
for carrying advanced, which will induce those
who have carried their oil down to unload and
increase the short interest, putting things in
shape for an improvement in the market later
On the other hand, the bull element did not
take the drop very much to heart, holding that
the slump was necessarily of an 'ephemeral
character, and that any spit of a buying move
ment would result In regaining lost ground, and
perhaps more. All seemed glad of the change,
as, however it may turn out, It will bring about
a uew deal.

Stock Vnlncs Decline ni the Holldnys Ap
proach A Tame Market, With Nar
row Fluctuations Strong and
Wenk Spots Bonds Dnll.
New York, April 16. The stock market to
day was excessively dull, and the fluctuations
jn the general list were made within the nar
rowest limits, reflecting only the humor of the
moment of the trading element in whose hands
the business done was concentrated. The holi
idays are for the most part responsible for the
growing dullness in the market, as to-day was
an off day for the Jewish element, while Friday
will be a full holiday here and in London,
and the latter Exchange will also close on
Monday and Satnrday. Under these circum
stances no one feels like entering into any ex
tended ventures in stocks.
The traders of a bearish turn of mind had
ont small lines of stocks in the early dealings,
hut the market afterward took on a firm tone,
and, while London had a few buying orders,
there was no disposition to trade npon that
fact, and, outside of a few saar.es which were
subject to special influences ami made wide
.fluctuations, there was no feature ot any kind
to the market in any pait of the dar.
There were some exaggerated rumors in re
gard to the trouble between the Union and
Northern Pacifies over the Oregon business,
and it was said that the Union Pacific had noti
fied the Navigation Company that it would
abandon the lease if a small line of 150 miles
were not turned over. The bears upon this
hammered the stock, andityielded about four
points, thongh upon a denial of the rumor a
portion of the loss as recovered. Short Line
was afterward attacked and lost a point or
more. On the other hand, Milwaukee, Lake
Shore and Western, both common and pre
ferred, rose sharply on the report of a large in
crease in the earnings and that the next divi
dend upon the preferred would be at an in
creased rate. Philadelphia Gas also showed
marked strength and rose about 6 per cent.
First prices were generally lower, tho de
clines from last evening's prices extending to
per cent, and under the pressure of the
traders further slight losses extending to
per cent were sustained. A marked recovery
accompanied by more animation was soon
brought about, however, and the market then
became intensely dull and the firm tone still
prevailed while the Milwaukee, Lake Shore
and Western stocks made rapid advances. In
the afternoon thCOregon stocks became weak
and the general list sympathized somewhat,but
there was no other movement until the last
hour, when Philadelphia Gas came to the front.
The market closed very dnll and steady at in
significant and irrcgnlar changes for the day.
The advances were: Philadelphia Gas 6, Mil
waukee; Lake Shore and Western common 2J,
and the "preferred 1. but the losses includ'
Navigation 2 and Snort Line IK-
Railroad bonds were very dnll.tlie sales of all
issues aggregating only $1,04S,000, although
there were dealings in au unusually large num

Country .rroduco Jobbing Prices.
There was an improvement in trade all along
country produce lines to-day over anything for
a week or two past. Apples aud potatoes are
moving out freely, dealers being determined to
close out old stock at somence. There is a
disposition to clean up old stuff and prepare
for the new. The hoped-for Easter boom in
eggs comes not Prices have been low so long
that dealers are well supplied, and a rise is no
longer expected preparatory to Easter. There
is an active demand for tropical fruits. Oranges
and lemons have advanced in the East within
a day or two. The. rise is duo here now and all
signs point to higher prices. There is no let-up.

Wheat Weaker Caused by Liverpool Ad
vices and Rains in the Nortnjrvest
Corn nnd Oats Stronger Hoc
Products Steady.
Chicago A good business was transacted
in wheat early in the day, and after that the
market ruled more quiet. The feeling de
veloped was weaker and the advance of yester
day was almost entirely lost.' The opening for
July1 was 1g lower, and with only slight
fluctuations declined o more, recovered e,
again eased off, and closed aboutc lower than
yesterday. The change in the market from the
.strength denoted yesterday was surprising to
many and attnbutcd to weak and lower Liver
pool advices A rather liberal increase on
ocean passage is noted, and general rains in
Northwest, where rain has been needed.
A moderate degree of activity was mani
fested in corn early in the session, after which
the pit became more quiet The feeling on the
whole was better and slightly higher prices
were establlshed,though the volume of business
was only moderate and fluctuations confined to
o range. The firmer tone was attributed by
some to the strength in provisions The de
mand was confined largely to "shorts" there
being considerable selling of July and baying
of May.
Oats were traded in fairly, and prices covered
a range of c. A steadier feeling developed,
but prices did not get above yesterday's outside
figures. The close was steady at iiHc above
Quite an active business was transacted in
mess pork, and the market exhibited consider
able strength. The market opened firm, and,
with free buying, prices were advanced 27
30c Later the demand slackoned, and prices
receded 1215c Toward the close the feeling
was steadier, and prices rallied 1720c, and
closed comparatively steadv.
Only a fair trade was reported in lard, and
the feeling was stronger. Prices were advanced
57kc per 100 pounds ad the market closed
An active trade was reported in short rib
sides and the feeling was decidedly stronger.
Prices were advanced 710c, and the advance
was moderately well suppoited.

Miss llrayer. aged sixteen years, daughter of
Mr. Wm. H. Drayer, a well known shoe dealer,
had been afflicted with Club Foot fourteen
years causing great distress and annoyance to
herself and family. There was such a contrac
tion of the muscles that she could not straighten
her limb, and although she wore the usual
high heel shoe, it was impossible for her to
bring her heel to the ground wben walking.
After suffering on in this condition for four
teen years, she consulted one of the surgeons
of the Polypathic Surgical Institute, and was
convinced that it was NOT too late to be
enred, An operation was performed, and the
deformity entirely removed, and although it Is
now three years since the operation, her euro
has remained permanent She walksperfectly,
and has no further use for a high heel shoe.
Her father says: "For the benefit of others I
hereby certify that the foregoing statement
concerning my daughter's condition is true and
