office of PnrsBrBG Dispatch, 1
In the line of staple meats trade has fallen
off the past week. Local receipts of cattle
at East Liberty were the lightest this year,
and not more than one-third the weekly
average of last fall. A-Diamond market
butcher reports that the License Court
rulings nave knocked him out of a trade which
amounted to 5100 per week. Said he: "My
vest customers were saloons. I am sure that X
put over SO pounds of meat into the Done bar
rel this week for which I would hare found
ready sale at 8c a pound if my customers
had not been knocked out."
The demand continues good in the lines of
fish. Shad are in better supply and down in
price. The retail oyster trade is practically
over. N ew York counts are still on the mar
ket for restaurants. Clams are in (rood snpplr
and equally good demand. A leading; dealer
reports that there is no better food for the
stomach that has been turned wrong; side out
by booze than the clam. Frogs are scarce and
Fruits nnd Dairy Products.
At the fruit and vegetable stalls business
was reported only fair for the week. Straw
berry supply has not been up to demand for a
few days past A full supply is expected to
morrow. Tomatoes and asparagus are drifting
to a price which the average consumer can
afford to pay.
Butter should sell cheaper than at any time
this year. The buyer who pays more than 2a
cents for the best made will not get the worth
of his money. Th best creamery is suld in job
lotsat22cents. Egs have advanced, and In a re
tail way are 5 cents higher than last Saturday.
Florists report an improvement in their lines
over last week, with prices unchanged. Fol
lowing are the latest retail prices for Satur
day's market basket material as famished by
leading dealers:
The prices called for at the Diamond Markets
remain unchanged. The best cuts of tenderloin

Wheat1 'Open Unsettled, bat Steadies Vp
Before the Close Corn and Oats
Higher Host Products Active
at Extreme Figures.
Chicago In wheat to-day a large specu
lative business was transacted and the feeling
was somewhat unsettled. Jnly opened at
about yesterday's closing figures, declined,
under free offerings, lc, became stronger, ad
vanced lc, eased off and closed about xjfi
higher than yesterday. The early weakness
and decline was attributed to large offerings,
influenced. It was claimed, by the expectation
that the Government report would bo bearish.
When the pressure to sell ceased, a gradual re
covery followed, caused by good buj ing.
Corn was fairly active but rather unsettled,
prices fluctuating frequently within c
range. The market opened at yesterday's clos
lngprices, was easy and declined Jc upon free
selling by a local operator, reacted, influenced
by the active shipping demand, ruled firm and
closed a shade higher than 'yesterday.
Oats were active, stronger and higher. Frlces
advanced Kie, and outside prices were
maintained at the close.
A fairly active trade was reported in hog
products and the feeling was steadier. The
shorts purchased to some extent and there was
some Inquiry on Investment accopnt. The
market opened easier, owing to the "weakness
in hogs. Later the market showed more
strength and advanced, extreme figures being
fully supported to the close.

The fieal Estate Market Holding Its
Own and a Great Deal More.
New Methods of Production Necessary to
Cheapen the Price of Iron.
The real estate business is surprisingly
active for the season, and bids fair to bo a
lively issue all summer. At the beginning
of April fears were expressed that alter the
moving period the market would reach the
top and begin to weaken, but the present
activity in this line of trading shows that
those who held these pessimistic viewB were
false prophets. The fact is well recognized
by business men generally that there is no
better or safer investment than land at a
fair valuation, and with this feeling upper
most, it is sheer folly to talk of a depression
either in demand or prices. At present
there is a pronounced inquiry for large
properties, and several parcels of this de
scription have recently changed hands at
Shadyside, Oakland, Diamond street and
elsewhere. Some of these were in whole or
in part unimproved, and will be sub-divided
and put on the market.
C Prices paid for these properties were by no
means extravagant, but entirely within keep
ing with the facilities, improvements and other
requisites for comfortable living acquired by
the purchasers. The fact Is that, except in a
few cases involving important business prop
erty, for which there was more or less competi
tion, fancy prices, as commonly understood,
have seldom been exacted. But few proper
ties have been sold within the past year that
would not bring a higher figure if put on the
market now. This shows that, while values in
many instances were pretty steep, they were
not above the views of men who were able to
recognize a good thing when they saw it. These
considerations lead to the conclusion that the
real estate interest of Pittsburg is in no dan
ger of a collapse, but, on the .contrary, affords
every evidence of being in a healthful condi
tion and destined to an expansion to be meas
ured only by the amount of available property
in and about the city.
While there has been no reduction In the
price ot iron here in consequence ot tho recent
cut mads by the Thomas Iron Company, values
are less steady in sympathy with the movemen t
Following are the views of a leading Pittsburg
broker on this subject, as expressed to The
Dispatch representative yesterday: "The
Thomas Company made the cut as a matter of
self-protection against the Southern makers. I
think the effects of the reduction will be local,
from the fact that the step was taken to hold
their trade rather than to extend it. If they
shall be able to supply their customers they
will be doing well. The general trade will have
to look for other sources of supply, the same
as it has been doing. The cut will hold good
for a year, no matter if iron advances $5 a ton.
In the latter event the Thomas Company would
reap no benefit from the advance, but other
concerns -would. It has been stated that the
cat would put many of the furnaces out of
blast, but I do not look for such a result at
least, not at present. Stocks must be worked
up before a shut down movement can take ef
fect. The reduction may hold prices on their
present level, but I do not look for a corre
sponding drop all along the line.
"Looking to the future of the iron business,
one thing seems certain a lower range of
prices. With the raw material in great abun
dance in almost every State and Territory of
the Union, and especially in Pennsylvania, I
can see no reason why iron should be held at
its present figures, low as they are by com
parison with former years. Either this must
be done or production must be kept within the
demand. There are several ways of bringing
this about One Is a redaction in freight rates.
As it is, the railroad companies are getting
more money for carrying ore than the furnace
men are getting for their product; that
is, their profits are larger. Then we
must devise cheaper methods of produc
tion. I don't mean that wages should be
reduced, for they are low enough, and in many
cases too low, considering the exacting nature
of the work; but cheaper fuel must be found
and more direct processes devised for turning
oat the metal. Under the system now in vogue
they say it is handled entirely too much; the
relations between the furnace and the casting
department are too distant; the metal should
be run Into the mold from the furnace. This
would quicken, and, therefore, cheapen, the
process of manufacture and make it possible
to sell iron at prices which now seem impos
sible. All these improvements will come in
time, and when established, the consumption
of iron will be increased to a degree that will
require a large addition to the milling capacity
to torn it out in sufficient quantities to meet
the demand."
It will be interesting to Pennsylvania oil pro
ducers to learn that the wells at Baker, on the
Caspian Sea, according to a gentleman con
nected with the trade there, show a rapid
diminution in production, and the phenomlnal
gushers are such only for a very short time.
Some of the most famous have ceased to pro
duce In paying quantities, and it is his opinion
that the time is not far distant when only
pumping wells of small production will remain
in the Russian fields. If or is theteldof the
extent generally supposed, as experimental
work has demonstrated that the area Is circum
scribed. Another interesting fact not hereto
fore known here Is that the oil in the Baku
fields is in pools, or, as is termed there, in pock
ets, which Is demonstrated by the. compara

nt Lowest Figures.
New Yobk, May 10. The stock market to
day was again a professional one from begin
ning to end. The local operators v, ere inclined
to follow London and commission people were
doing literally nqthlng, but the poor impres
sion made by the Atchison directory embold
ened the traders to- attack that stock in
the hope of bringing out long stock on
stop order, which to a certain degree was
successful, and the Block was hammered down
1 per cent below the closing figure of last
evening. St Paul was only moderately active,
and notwithstanding the calling in of loaned
stock and a premium of 1-32 of 1 per cent for
use. the stock fluctuated only ii per cent
throughout the day. The drive at Atchison
brought out good support at the decline, and
after the first rally the stock was compara
tively neglected for the remainder of tho day.
Transcontinental was again one of the leaders
in point of activity, but like St. Paul fluctuated
over an extremely narrow range, while It
maintained an exceptionally strong tone.
Dullness and stagnation were special features
until near the close, when a drive was made at
Richmond and West Point, which yielded over
1 per cent. Burlington also exhibited a droop
ing tendency at this time, bnt its loss was con
fined to a small fraction. The strong feature
of the day was the Chicago Gas Trust, which
took a start toward 2 p.m. and rapidly roso 2
per cent, it , is said that puts at 49 have been
soia upon tne siock, ana tne Dnying was to
protect these privileges. Among the special
ties there were a few marked improvements,

Railroad bonds were quiet, the sales of all
issues aggregating $1,525,000, of which Denver
and Rio GrandeWestem certificates contrib
uted $100,000. The tone of tha dealings was not
pronounced, but was rather heavy at first, re
covering later in the day. Denver and Rip

while Reading second Incomes lost 2 at 6f
and South Carolina seconds 6 at 50.

Country Produce Jobbing Prices.
Produce commission men report trade cool
and weather hot. Tropical fruits and hen fruit
are the only articles ln'produce lines that hold
up well in price. Old Ohio cheese has finished
its career tor this season, and Ueir York will
soon follow. Bottom Is almost ant of batter
trade, owing to immense supplies from the
country. There has been a fall of folly Cc from
last week's prices, and stock goes begging at
the reduction, according to reports of some
dealers. The hot weather ot the past few
days, together with the fact of light arrivals in
New York, has given a decided stimulus to the
lemon and orange trade. Steeper prices in
both lines cannot be far away. Strawberries
were in excessive supply at the beginning of
-the week, but have been scarce for the past
few days. Shippers were disappointed with
prices the fore part of the week and since then
have been withholding stock from this point;
A carload from Tennessee is due this evening;
there will probably be plenty to-morrow.

X am satisfied that Cancer u hereditary in my
family. My father died of It, a sister of my
mother died of It, and my own sister died of it.
My feelings may be imagined, then, when the
horrible disease made its appearance on my
side. It was a malignant Cancer, eating In
wardly In such a way that it could not be cut
out. Numerous remedies were used for it, but
the Cancer grew steadily worse, until Itseemed
that I was doomed to follow the others of tha
family. I took Swift's Specific, which, from
the first day, forced out the poison and con
tinued its use nntil I had taken several bottles,
when I found myself well. 1 know that S. S. S.
cured me. Mrs. S. M. Idol.
