CATTLE AKD SHEEP A SHADE OFF.
.Quality of BeeTes an Improvement on Re

Office of Pittsburg Dispatch, 1
MOSDAT. April 22, 1&9. J
The quality of cattle in this week's sup
plies was an improvement on anything re
ceived for a number of weeks past. A
leading butcher of the Diamond Market
. said: "I saw scarcely any mean bollocks at
Herr's Island this week. "With the exception
ot a few country cattle which snonld hare
been sold for stackers and feeders, the supplies
were generally good." There were a few loads
of prime cattle weighing from 1,500 to 1,000
The supply did npt vary much from last
week. The tone of markets was easier than
last Monday, and on most grades there was a
decline of 15 to 20c per hundred. Prime cattle
weighing from 1,500 to 1,600 pounds were sold
at H 7534 85; mediums, 1,200 to 1,400. S4 60
4 70: prime light cattle, from 900 to 1,100 pounds,
Calves were in supply beyond demand, with
oj to 5c as the range of prices. Kresh cows
were slow. Dry cows and heifers were slower
and hard to sell at any price. The range for
bulls and stags was 3 to 3c Receipts, L. Ger

The supply was light, but sufficient for all
demands. Markets were off a shade from last
Monday's prices. Regular drovers attempted
to bold up prices to rates of a week ago, but
the attempt was a failure. They were forced to
concede in order to affect sales.

In general the market for cattle, sheep and
lambs was slow er than last week at slightly re
duced pnceswhile the market for hogs showed
improvement at an advance on last Mondaj.
A leading butcher who gets his supplies from
Herr's Island cave the following as his opinion
of markets this week: "I bought the best cat
tle for 4)c. Last week 1 would have had to
pay 4c tor the same grade. Markets were in
mv lavor also for sheep and lambs as com
pared with a week ago. But for hogs the seller
was able to bring the buyer to his own terms.
On the whole, markets are easier this week

Favorable News of Weather and Crops
Gives 'Wheat a Black Eye Corn and
Oat ta the Rat Hog Products
Chicago. A good business was trans
acted in wheat to-day, but it was chiefly
of a local character and credited to some of the
large floor operators. There was some short
wheat, so that on the whole there was consider
able trading. It was rumored that a persistent
buyer of late, had been letting goof some of
his holdings. The market opened weak and
prices 'declined 3c. for May and June and ic
for July, closing about 2c lower for May and
June, and He lower for July than closing fig
ures Saturday. There were no new features
Weather fine and crop news favorable. There
was some inquiry for cash wheat here, and an
order for a cargo for shipment east was being
Only a moderate business was transacted in
corn, fluctuations being limited to He range.
The feeling was rather easy early in the day,
but later in the session a steadier tone was de
veloped. A eaker and unsettled feeling developed in
oats and prices ranged lower, May being the
weakest, due to free selling by longs and an
absence of any demand of consequence, except
from shorts. Prices on May declined Jgc from
Saturday's close, while June and July only sold
offJiSJic The close was oniet at intermediate
rices for May, but at about the same as Satur
ay for June and July.
Hog products attracted very little attention,
and trading was light. At the opening the
market was easier, but fair buying n local
and outside account improved prices tem
porarily. Later, however, the feeling was
weaker again, with light trading, and prices de
clined on all the leading articles.

accident occurred at the residence of Alfred
Meyer, of Billings, last night. The victim
was a girl by the name of Selma Holmes.
She had started a fire in the kitchen stove

using a scrap of paper taken . from a box
near by. Among the bits of paper hap

instantly. The girl was blinded by the
powder. Her clothing caught fire, and in
Uie excitement she ran out into the air all

A Business Man Kicks Against Sacrificing
Property of the County.
REAL ESTATE STILL A LIFELI ISSUE
Old buildings must go.and they are going
in every part of the city as fast as they can
be torn town; and their sites will soon be
occupied by modern structures of brick and
stone that will please the eye and cultivate
the taste. Old Pittsburg is passing away,
little by little, and a new Pittsburg is
taking its place. This spirit of improve
ment this keeping step to the music of
nineteenth century progress will soon
place the Gas City abreast of any of its
rivals in point of architectural elegance. The
widening of Diamond street would hasten this
consummation, which is so devoutly to be
Pittsburgers are making their mark all over
the Western world. They are found wherever
great enterprises are beingpushed that require
money and brains. Said a gentleman yester
day afternoon: "It would be hard to find a
place or business without Pittsburg men and
Pittsburg capital. They are in Russia, in
China and Japan, in South America, making
railroads and running steamboats; in Alaska,
developing the mining industry of tha won
derful territory; in Mexico, doing the same
kind of work; in Seattle, introducing steam
cars and electric lights; in Southern California,
engineering "a real estate boom in fact, thoy
may be found wherever enterprise lifts its
head. No better tribute than this could be
paid us. Pittsburg is proud of the achieve
ments of,ber sons whether at home or abroad."
There is great activity throughout the South
in building cottonseed oil mills, a dozen of
which, to cost 81.000,000 or more, having been
projected In the last two weeks, while there is
a report that a 82,000,000, company has been or
ganized in Philadelphia for the same purpose.
The new mills reported are nearly all con
templated by independent companies not con
nected with the Cotton Oil Trust. The boom In
this industry should open up a good field for
The scheme to sell the county buildings does
not find much favor with business men. One
of them said yesterday: "I think the county
can afford to hold this property. It don't need
the money. To sell it now, on a rising market,
and with a prospect of the improvement of
Diamond street, which would add thousands to
its value, would be a financial blunder, for
which it would be hard to find an excuse. The
men who are after it understand this perfectly
well, and will leave no means untried to ac
quire possession of It, bnt I hope the Commis
sioners will resist all pressure, and allow the
title to remain where it is. The time may not
be far distant when the property will be needed
by the county, but if it should finally be de
termined to sell-it, a delay of four or five years
would almost donble its value."
Some of the Pittsburg bankers complain that
certain manufacturers, when in need of money,
borrow it in New York. Tbey get it at a slight
ly lower rate of interest, but it costs them as
much in the long run. When due it must be
paid. If borrowed from local bankers the notes
could be renewed if the makers were hard up.
The main objection to this sort of business is
that it completely ignores the principle of pro
tection to borne industry, which is the link that
b'ids all branches of local industry together.
Commission people generally are of the Im
pression that the next pronounced movement
in the market will be luthe bond department.
The prospect of the ease of money encourages
this belief. The speculative issues of first
mortgages will, it is thought, take the lead.
The Inquiry is good and the snpply, even at
the recent advance, is by no means pro.
nounced. ' t , -
Among the real estate transactions reported
yesterday were the sale by C. Beringer & Son
of five acres at Osborn station for 84,600, and of
two bonses and lots on Ellsworth avenue by
W.H.Herron 4 Son for 86,000. Other sales
were less important. The demand for real
estate, improved and nnlmproved, is as active
and prices are as strong as at anyprevious time

Expansion of Business Brines Ont a Good
Demand for Money.
Business in the local money market opened
up yesterday with a spurt that indicated a
lively week among the bankers. There was a
fair borrowing all round, showing a steady
expansion of business. Acceptable paner was
taken at 5 and 6 per cent on call, and 6 and 7
on two and four months' time. Checking and
depositing were fair. The accumnlated busi
ness of Saturday afternoon and Sunday swelled
the clearing houe report to bugo proportions,
the exchanges footing up 83.412.108.03 and the
balances to 8565,208.03. A Fourth street banker
said: "The improvtment In our business this
season is unusually slow, but it is getting here
all the same. After all, 1 don't know bnt this
tardiness is best. If business had started off
on the jump there would have been danger of
a bait. But beginning slowly and cautiously,
as it has, I think it will last through the sea
son." Money on call at New York yesterday was easy
at 2 to 3 per cent; last loan, 2; closed offered
at 2. Prime mercantile paper, 46. Sterling
exchange dull but steady at 81 86f for 60-day
bills and 84 i& for demand.

OIL IN THE BOUP.
The Beara Said tbo Market nnd Prices
The oil marketdeveloped more vim than
strength yesterday. It was weak from first to
last. To say that the Standard's grab In Ohio
bad nothing to do with it would be ignoring a
fact that almost every operator recognizes,
Said one of them: "While not willing to admit
that Lima oil is responsible for all the weak
ness, 1 am forced to acknowledge that if there
were no Lima oil the market would be in better
shape." One of the worst effects of the Ohio
story has been to frighten away what little out
side support there was to the market and to de
ter it from again takiug hold until the ques
tions Involved are fully settled.
The bears instituted a raid as soon as the Ex
change opened. Everybody seemed anxious to
sell. This broke the market, and from that
time onward until the finish prices steadily lost
ground the close being 3 cents lower than the
opening. The fluctuations were wide enough
to afford margin dealers a good opportunity to
do a profitable business, and tbey worked the
lead for all there was In it. The first price was
85V. By easv stages the market sold down to
81 the lowest point. It then rallied and
closed at 82. Trading in puts and calls indi
cated small faith in an early improvement.
Some of the brokers said they would not be
surprised If the price dropped to 70.

DULL AND FIEM.
Stocks Still in the Hands of Professional
Dealers Strong- nnd Weak Spots
Most of the List Closes Frac
New Yobk, April 22. The stock market to
day was dull, but generally firm and slightly
higher than Saturday's closing prices in all but
a few shares. The dealings continued to be
almost professional in character, and the holi
day in London and Boston served to restrict to
some degree the amount of business, but there
was some buying for London account, es
pecially In Louisville and Nashville, while or
ders to bny New England were executed for
Boston. The statement of the Union Pacific
of its business for the past year was regarded
in' an unfavorable light, as it showed a decrease
in the earning power of the company, and the
hope of dividends seems more remote than for
a long time.
This showing weakened the stock, and in the
active list it was the special weak spot, but
nad plenty of company among the low-pr(ced
shares. Short Line dropped over 4 per cent,
and Hocking Valley was equally weak at one
time. The decreased earnings of the company
was the primary cause of the slump, inducing
sales of long stock, but the old rumor of a de
fault in the June interest was revived, and un
til the President stated that the money was al
ready earned and would be paid promptly, tba
decline was rapid; but the stook afterward ral
lied and regained most of the loss. On the
other band, Texas Pacific was quite strong late
in the day upon the increasing earnings report
ed, and the Coal stocks, notwithstanding the
reports of the depressed condition of the trade,
were all higher. There was 'considerable sell
ing of Chicago Gas by Chicago speculators,
and that stock ran off something over 1 per
The opening was made at from H to per
cent higher figures than those of Saturday's
close, and the subsequent movements were
very irregular, Union Pacific being the weak
point, followed by Chicago Gas, while Atchi
son, St. Paul and New Eueland were the SDe
cially strong points. -The fluctuations in the
general list were confined to the smallest
fractions and possessed but little significance,
anddulless soon oecame the ruling feature,
notwithstanding the weakness shown in Short
Line and Hocking Valley. Loulsville''and
Nashville, however, came to the front after 12
o'clock, and Tennessee Coal also joined the
upward movement; everything moving up
toward delivery hour. v
After that time there was considerable real
izing and prices yielded a shade, but the close-
was quiet and latriy steady, leaving most ol the
list fractionally higher than last week. -The
trading showed the same concentration npon a
few shares, and out of the total day's business
of 164,450 shares, Louisville and Nashville con
tributed 23,811. The important changes were
losses of 3 in Short Line, 1 in Union Pacific
and IK in Chicago Gas, while Tennessee Coal
is 2 higher.
Railroad bonds developed considerable more
animation, tbo sales of all Issues aggregating
81,800000, of which Reading 4s furnished
8183,000. Texas Pacific firsts 8112,000, and Hock
ing Valley 5s 8106.000. The tone of the market,
however, was more decidedly strong than for a
long time A

George Keunnn's Greeting From the Rus

pHlCAGO, April 22. George Kennan,
whose magazine articles on the Russian ex
ile system have been read from month to
month with so much interest, not only in
this country, but in Europe, and especially
in Russia,' has been in this city for
some days, and has given a new evidence
of the affectionate regard in which he is
held by all Russians who wish or hope for
the disenthrallment of their native land.
One evening a well-dressed man stepped up
to him and asked in English if be was not
George Kennan. An affirmative reply
evoked a response in Russian.
"Do you remember," the stranger asked,
"meeting a young man in the Caucausus 19
years ago, while you were making a 20-mile
walkthrough the mountains?" ,
"I do well," answered Sir. Eennan, scan
ning bis interlocutor closely.
The interview closed with an invitation to
Mr. Kennan to attend an informal gather
ing of Russian refugees in Chicago. Of
course be went. In a cozy parlor he found
a typical Russian repast awaiting him, to
be snared by a dozeu or so of the same class
from which the political prisoners whose
condition he bad been so successfully en
gaged in investigating.
A pleasant hour or two was spent in dis
cussing the affairs ot the great Eastern em

veloped among the exiles in the course of
the conversation. Every phase of opposi

resented. ' Before the party dispersed Mr.

drifting downward owiqg to very liberal re

sure of bears. Our wholesale grocers have con
cluded to accept the situation and rednced
prices on spring patents. There is a much
larger difference in the qualify of winter than
spring patents. There has been a cut of 25c all
along the line from last week's rates on flour,
both here, and at sources of supply.
Last week's output of flour at Minneapolis
was 100.500 barrels-the largest since November.
Export wheat demand continues very light,
and London advices indicate a very dull
market for both wheat and flour.

You state that the purpose ot your corpora

proper and legal protection against unjust and
oppressive laws, and to aid its members in the
deiense of their lawful business and against
the unwarranted encroachment of Govern

for the better government and moral elevation
of the business of trafficking in malt, vinous
and spirituous liquors." The statute provides
that corporations may be formed for any pur
pose ior wnicn inaivianais may lawiuiiy asso

lawful, purpose, and it is contrary to public
policy to sanction such organizations. You
will see in a moment that the Statp cannot
clothe with corporate power an organization
having for its avowed object opposition to the
execution of the laws of the State.
