Tuesdat, May 7, 18S9. f
The current number of the Minneapolis
Miller finds fevr crumbs of comfort from the
wheat nnd flour situation. Among many
mournful reflections in the editorial columns
are th'e following: "Our millers are, as a
rule, a level-headed class of men, but this
season has upset their calculations. ' Statis
tics have been misleading, figures have lied,
the unexpected has occurred. It has been a
3 ear of mistakes for millers and their cus
tomers. Consumers bought vhen they
should have refused, and could not be per
suaded to buy when it was to their interest.
There is more interest in speculative bread
stuffs than in either actual wheat or flour.
The flour market has no encouraging feat
ures. Buyers lack Confidence. There is no
lack of, wheat for all purposes."
The same journal's London correspondent
reports: "Wheat and flour market is dull.
Seasonable weather has improved the outlaofc
lor the coming crop. The season is too far ad-
anced for any pinch In supplies. French news
are not encouraging to holders."
The entire tone of the Miller Is bearish as to
the flour situation. Our home jobbers report
that the band to-inouth policy is generally pur
sued by their customers. With a steady down
ward drift for months past, it has been a risky
business to carrv large stocks. A leading job
ber said to-day: "I have seldom known the
time when my customers were carrying such
light stocss of flour. Some are borrowing from
their neighbors until such a time as they think
bottom Is reached."
Markets are a shade firmer at Chicago to-day,
but the firmness has not arrived here as yet A
representative of one of our leading packing
houses said: ''Our trade is not up to what it
was this time last year. But there it plenty of
time yet to recover lost ground. Our best
months are July, August and September for
smoked meat. We cannot make predictions as
to trade. I have known pork pickers here to
be 330,000 to $40,000 ahead in August, and at the
erid of the season, November 1, come ont no
better than the previous year. On the
other hand, I have known them to bo
behind In August and wind up the season with
an advanco of J30,0u0 to $10,000. We have seen
the Urns when we had a clear profit of 4c a
pound on hams by the nee of markets. Now
we would bn mighty glad to close out our en
tire stock of provisions at a profit of lc ner
pound. We could not, by a long ways, do this
at present prices of hog products. But we live
in hopes that prices will soon advance. Al
ready there aro signs of an upward movement,
and wo abide in the faith and hope that our
labor will not be in vain. You may say for me,
however, that we t ho are in the packing busi
ness mil be content to reap 6 per cent on our
investment this season."
Harness All Right.
In the midst of the generally solemn talk over
the commercial situation it is good to find an
optimist who has nothing bnt good to say of
his trade. One of oar leading manufacturers
of harness and a dealer in all kinds of horse
equipments said to-day: "Our trade for the
first lour months of this year was better than
we ever had tor the same period. In January
our business was $5,000 better than the previous
January. Our spring trade opened up briskly
a few weeks ahead of its usual time, owing to
the fine weather in the latter part of March and
early part of April We have been sendine
goods of lato as far South as Florida and as far
" West as Kansas. Turf goods aro in firstrate
demand. The drop in leather does not amount
" to more than lc per pound on the high grades.
Yon may say to the readers of The Dispatch
that, so far as one dealer's harness trade is
concerned, there has been an increase of 50 per
cent for the past four months over the cor
responding months of last year."
The marked feature of our home markets
this week is the advance In eggs. The mother
hen has been so long at work that she has con
cluded at last to rest on her eggs and provide
future producers. Creamery butter is destined
to take a lower level before the week is out
Potatoes are moving out more freely than they
have done for months past. Said a Liberty
street produce commission merchant, who is
not inclined to be an optimist: "1 f eel that we
have turned the comer and that a season of
activity is at hand We had an unusually good
Monday, and to-day we ha e no reason to com
plain. There is a great rash for potatoes and
choice apples, which have been slow all the
winter ana spring."
It remains now for all hands to look at the
bright side and a better day will soon dawn on

Speculation in Wheat "Still "Based -on the
Weather Prices Rnlo Lotver Corn
and" Oat Quiet A Hnttle
.for July Pork
Chicago Only a light business was trans
acted in wheat to-day. and speculation as on
yesterday, was based almost wholly upon the
weather, espectsy 4n the Northwest. The
opening was about o lower than yesterday's
closing, and steadily declined Jc mbro under
rather free speculative offerings, some lines of
long wheat coming on the market. Operators
were influenced by reports of rain from the
Northwest, but later advices reported the rain
not heavy, and that It was clearing up, the
wind hot and the ground drying up fast. There
was a recovery of c above inside figures,
but again eased off, closing Jc lower than yes
terday. Outside news had but little effect on
Corn ruled quiet and Inactive most of the
session, transactions being limited to local
traders, and fluctuations wore confined within
Jc range. The prevailing teellng was one of
steadiness, and prices showed butlittlo change
Oats were fairly active, but weak andlowor.
Operators loaded up freely yesterday ahd want
ed to sell to-day. Outsido orders were in light
supply, and an increase in offerings caused a
weak foeling and a decline of Ko on June and
July, nhich were the chief deliveries traded in.
May, however, remained slow, and only de
Considerable interest was manifested In mess
pork, and peculative trading was quite active,
though largely in contracts for July. Sles at
tbo opening were made at a slight advance, but
this was quickly lost. With good buying prices
rallied 25&27c and closed steady.
Trading was light in lard and the feeling was
stronger. Prices were advanced 57c, these
appreciations being moderately well sup
ported. A fairly active trade was reported in short
ribs and the feeling was stronger. Prices ad

Advantages and Disadvantages of Trading
in Petroleum Fatares.
DICKERISQ FOE VALUABLE PEOPERTX
In the Bpring of 1775' provisions were so
scarce in Pittsburg that flour sold at $16 a
barrel and bacon at $1 a pound. Now flour
can be bought at $5 and bacon at 8 to 10
cents. At the former date lots were almost
given away; now they readily bring from
52,000 to 5,000 a front-Toot Truly, lime
has worked wonders in Pittsburg,
"The East End is to be the heart of the
new Pittsburg," remarked a real estate
dealer, yesterday. "The demand for prop
erty out there is astonishing, and at the rate
sales are being made, it will not be long un
til everything will be gobbled. "Unim
proved lots are already becoming scarce.
Building is going forward at a great rate. I
know of several contractors who "have re
fused work because of their inability to per
form it within the time specified. In a few
years that entire section will be a compact
mass of buildings, extending from Wllklns
burg to the old city. The center of population:
will then be at Shadyside or Roup."
Tho project for trading in oil futures the
same as in wheat, corn, pork and other pro
ducts was fully discussed at a conference of
delegates from all the exchanges held here yes
terday.and was unanimously recommended for
adoption. This, it is thought, will be done, al
though considerable opposition is expected, es
pecially in Pittsburg. Among the advantages
claimed for the new nlanare these: It would
enlarge the field of operations by inducing out
side trading, and thus relieve the professionals
from the onerous burden of running the mar
ket alone, and it would do away with high pre
miums, which at present are paralyzing trade.
The strongest objection to it is that the deal
ings wonld have to be carried on without the
help of the Clearing House, as it would be im
possible to keep track of tho transactions. But
as any chance would bo for the better, a fair
trial of the system could work no particular
harm and might be of great benefit to the mar
ket. Whether or not it would open the door to
the Standard for the introduction of Lima oil
is a question which it would be well to consider
and settle beforehand.
Several rumors are floating around In regard
to the Singer property at Wilkinsburg. One Is
to the effect that a cash offer of $75,000 has
been made for it. Another that a syndicate is
ready to take it at $100,000. Both of these sto
ries may be unfounded, .but It is certain that it
is tho subject of a dicker of some kind. The
property is ono of the finest In that section. It
consists of 33 acres of highly improved land,
and a stone mansion that cost $65,000 about 20
years ago, when it was the costliest dwelling in
the county. The interior is finished in hard
wood, which, with the mantels, tiles, etc, was
imported. If purchased by the syndicate the
ground will be subdivided into about 200 lots,
at $1,000 each. This would insure a handsome
profit to the purchasers.
The right of way Is being secured this week
for the extension of tho main pipe of the
Wilkinsburg water works to North Braddock,
by way of Hawkins and Copeland. The supply
furnished by the Braddock works is objection
able on account of the large proportion of mud
and other Impurities it contains, being pumped
directly from the Monongahcla river. Brush
ton, part of Park Place and Edgewood will also
.obtain water from Wilkinsburg.
Philadelphia-has an architect in Mrs. Minerva
Parker, who demonstrates that women may fit
themselves for that profession. She has famil
iarized herself not only with her profession,
but with every detail of the building trade; she
can judge of the material which is to go into
tho house and tho way in which the work is
carried out as well as any master builder in the
country. She says that one of the most im
portant parts of an architect's knowledge con
sists in knowing how- to direct the mechanics,
and this she herself does with great skill.
Buffalo also has a woman architect

There was nothing new in the local financial

An Active Market Cloie Two Cents Higher
, Than the Opening.
The oil market opened rather slnmpy yester
day, with heavy selling hereto get in out of the
wet. Tho first price was 82Kc,Kc under the
close of Monday. It then sold down to Slic,
from which there was a recovery to 82c. A
little later on, about 11 o'clock, the market
broke again and sold at 80c From this point
there was a quick rally to 81c, where it held
until the last hour, when there was a jump to
8414c, at which it closed.
Trading was heavy at allot the exchanges.
Carrying at New York was, 10 cents, flat at
Bradford,25 cents at Oil City and 50 cents here.
A broker said: "The market, after such an ad
vance as .was experienced to-day, is likely to
slump a little and sell around 83c, from wbicn
point I lodk for it to seeka higher level." An
other broker said he expected a break to-day.
The fact is, tho market is in such a chaotic
state that nobody can predict; with certainty
what its future course will be. .-,,

New York, May 7. The stock market to
day was more active, especially in the forenoon,
when there was a strong tone displayed, bct.it
later yielded to the attacks of the bears add
drifted into dullness, finally closing at but
slight changes for the day. The London figures
came lower this morning, and partly In sym
pathy with that center and partly because of
the tendency to realize among the traders upon
the reduction in the prico of pig iron, which is
inameasnre regarded as the barometer of the
industrial world, the opening here was feverish
and irregular, with no very marked changes
from last evening's prices, the widest differ
ences being only J per cent. There was a bull
ish sentiment upon Atchison, and, tho Boston
operators were prominent in that stopk, as well
as New England, which were specially active
in the first hour, and both advanced materially
from last evenings figures.
The Northern Pacific group were also ro
markably strong and Oregon Transcontinental
was bought on talk ot a contest at the next
election in June. Missouri Pacific was strong,
partly in sympathy with Atchison and partly
on the talk of an arrangement made with Mr.
Gould by a party who propose to make a bull
campaign with the stock. Among the low
priced snares there were some sharp move
ments, and Denver, Texas and Ft Worth cer
tificates rose over 1 per cent and Kingston and
Pembroke, wbicn has. been neglected tor along
time, sold up over 2 per cent. Tho higher
priced shares, such as Manitoba and Milwaukee,
Lake Shore and Western, also showed marked
strength for a time. .The demand for stocks,
however, underwent a marked decrease after
112 o'clock, and although St. Paul became active
and moved up fractionally, tho bears took hold
of Atchison and it retired 2 per cent below its
best price of the morning. Tho rest of the list
followed and the decline in a few of the spec
ialties helped along the general weakness.
Philadelphia Gas was most conspicuous with
a drop of 4 per cent, and Pullman yielded 1.
There were reports of much needed rains in
the Northwest, but these had no effect npon
the market, and even the scarcity of Heading
for delivery with the premium of 1 64 for use
was powerless to rally that stock or the rest of
the market. The general list, however, moved
over an extremely narrow range, and there
seemed to be no marked tendency in either di
rection, the fluctuations being lnslgnlficanr.
The heaviness was maintained until the close,
which was quiet at close to opening figures.
Among the active shares the only important
changes were losses of 1 per cent each In
Atchison and Canada Pacific
Railroad bonds were again active, the sales
of all issues aggregating $2,167,000, of which
8212,000 was in West Shore 4 $150,000 in Texas
Pacific seconds and $106,000 in Atlantic and
Pacific 4s. The market was stronger than on
any day since the holidays, and almost every
thing traded in is materially higher this even
ing. The principal gains were Denver and
South Farkcertiflcates 5 to 94, Flint and
Marquett tis 2 to 122 and Lake Erie and West
ern firsts 2 to 113.

Liberty street firm reports receipts of eight
car loads of bananas this week, with one-half
already sold. Lieht arrivals in New York have
stimulated markets for tropical fruits. Trade
in produce lines continues to improve, and all
signs point to an active week. Yesterday was

To cure Mrs. Thomas Hatton, and she suffered
on for 13 years. The aches and pains which
she experienced in almost every part of her
body was simply terrible. Those sharp, cutting
pains across the small of her back and lower
part of her body was almost unbearable. In
fact she suffered with all those diseases and
conditions peculiar to women. For three
months her mind was unbalanced, and for
months she was confined to ber bed. She be
came very weak and emaciated, sotbatsho
only weighed 98 pounds. No one expected her
to live, much less get entirely cured. After
receiving three months' treatment with the
physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Insti
tute, 323 Penn avenue, who make a specialty of
her disease, she says:
"I never want any one to suffer as I have for
the past 13 yoars. The condition of my case
was much worse than has been described, and
I am only too glad to testify to my complete
cure by the doctors of the Catarrh and Dys
,!MRS. THOMAS HATTON, Putnam, Pa."
The above lady physician can be consulted
by ladles suffering from diseases peculiar to
their sex. The medicines used are positively
curative, and are so prepared as to allow the
patient to uie the treatment herself. They
treat successfully Catarrh. Rheumatism. Dys
pepsia, Bronchitis, Asthma, Blood, Kidney
and Female Diseases.

Effects of Dr. Smith's
AT 502 PENN AVENUE.
First Baptist Church at Eanksvllle.Pa., has
been a confirmed invalid slncSlSSL "Fortha
past eight years he has been afflicted with,
rheumatism more or less of the time, and for
the past three years bis sufferings have been so
terrible that life had become a burden to hlm
He complained of tearing, aching pains all
through his body. His stomach became the
seat of horrible neuralgic pains, which ex
tended through to his back and radiated from,
there to his shoulder blades. The pain came
on in paroxysms, which increased In violence
until his body was bent double. The pain wa
usually aggravated alter eating; and. would
continue unabated until every particle of food
passed out of his stomach. As soon, as thaf
Stomach became empty he complained of a
faint, all gone feelln? In it. His bowel
were obstinately constipated, and were
only moved by taking cathartics. He suffered
from an aching, tearing pain- in the small of
the back, palpitation of the heartand Sharp
stitching pain in his side. Mr. Evans had suf
fered so long without finding relief that he
had riven up all hopes of recovery, and when
we consider his terrible condition we do not
wonder that he had little if any faith that Dr.
Smith would benefit his condition. Remern
ber that he had suffered eight years with rheu
matism, which was associated with dyspepsia,
constipation and neuralgia of the stomach in
an aggravated form. Spasms of pain In hia
stomach and bowels would seize him and bend
hl3 body double. These horrible pains would
continue without intermission until his body
was bathed in profuse perspiration and until he
would faint from exhaustion. In this pitiable
condition he applied to Dr. Smith, the mag
netic physician, at No. 503 Penn ave. After
three magnetic treatments in connection with
a little medicine, Mr. Evans could eat without
distress, sleep well, and go about from clay to
day with never a sense of weariness or dis
tress. Rev. Mr. Evans stated In Dr. Smith's
office last Saturday that when he applied to
Dr. Smith that language was inadequate to ex
press the horrible torture he was undergoing.
He says that Dr. Smith's treatment gave him.
