Office of wttsbueq Dispatch,
MONDAT. May 13. 1K&J
The run of stock was good, and, consider
ing the disagreeable weather, markets were
active all along the line. This was especial
ly the case in cattle lines, which brought
from 10 to 15 cents better prices than last
Monday. Some dealers claim an advance
ot 20 cents in the best grades.
The supply was below the average; the
total number on the market was 437 head.
In addition to these "Winter & Dellenbach
received 259 head. The demand was Rood and
buyers did not hesitate to pay the advance ot
1020c, A leading buyer reports quality of
cattle in this week's supplies much above the
recent average A number of prime 1,600
pound cattle were in the receipts. The bulk
was nice, smooth butcher stock from 1,300 to
1,400 pounds in weight. There was little or
nothing of butchering stock from the neigh
boring counties. Choice heavy western beeves,
1,600 to 1,600 pounds, sold at $5 005 15: medi

Supply was considerably below last week, but
notwithstanding the light run drovers were un
able to holdup prices. Against their views
they were forced to concede to the buyer, and

prices down to $4 75 for tops, a decline ol 5c
from Saturday's prices. The bulk of those re

CmcAQO Wheat was in moderate request
to-day with a lower range of prices than Satur
day, The general feeling was quite strong,
but the free selling by a prominent local trader
prevented the market from advancine. Tho
rains have now reached pretty much all over
the whole country, and the opening was weak
in consequence, prices declining Jc below the
closing of Saturday, but there -was good buy

the same as Saturday.
The large decrease In the visible supply had
a tendency to create firmness among operators.
Tho liberal export clearances of Saturday
helped to sustain the market There was some
demand also for cash wheat here and a salo of
25,000 bushels of hard variety to a Rochester
miller at 96c, free on board.
Corn was only moderately active fluctuations

LANDS AND HOUSES.
A Eevival of PnWic Interest in the
Local Ileal Estate Market.
A HEALTHY AHDGROWING DEHAKD
Important Deals Just Effected and Others
in Coarse of Development
STOCK BE0EEES PLATING PBEEZE-OUT
Real estate is holding its own as a lively
interest in Pittsburg, and it is daily absorb
ing large amounts of capital, no other
(security promising so substantial a return
with so little risk. While the daily reports
in The DisrATcn show a large movement
in all parts of the two cities and suburbs,
there are many other deals of equal and
often of greater magnitude which are with
held from the public for prudential reasons.
One of these occurred yesterday, but very
little beyond the bare fact could be pumped
out of the agent through whom the transfer
nas effected. It was the sale of a down-town
business property at a price approximating 25,
000, payment being made in spot cash.
Following upon tho beets of this deal came
the report of a salo near the upper end of Fed
eral street. Allegheny, Involving a fine resi
dence, the price being put at $15,000. These
and other transactions occuring every day,
show that there Is no abatement of the interest
that has for the past six months or more charac
terized the local real estate market.
Stock dealing was rather slow yesterday,
business being confined to a narrow selection
of favorites all of which, with one exception,
that of Electric, showed a decline from Satur
day's closing quotations. There were plenty of
orders for them, but brokers are a sharp set,
and know pretty well when to go In and when
to stay out. They never load up on a declining
market, or when there is a prospect of a slump,
although thev may be as ravenous as wolves.
That would be giving themselves away, and it
would be a proclamation to the other side of
their intentions which would immediately bo
taken advantage of.
Ihey have the peculiar faculty of so veiling
their desires as to conceal the most intense
anxiety behind a countenance expressive ot
total indifference. They did that way yester
day. -Many of them wanted stocks, were
hungry for them in fact, but they thought by
waiting a day or two longer they could buy
them at a lower figure. This was tho only
reason for tho depression of the market, as
there was no change in any of the companies
represented on the list. A good buying de
mand Is all that is needed to lift the stock
market out of the rut. It will come along one
of these days. The bears won't be allowed to
rule the roost forever.
Persons visiting tho suburbs now, when field
and wood, garden and grove are arrayed In a
livery of green, are not surprised at the great
demand for houses and lots in those beauty
spots which surround the city like a string of
pearls. They are certainly charming places in
which to establish homes.
There was an active movement in the real es
tate market yesterday.notwithstanding it was a
wet as well as a blue Monday. Most of the agen
cies were favored'with a good run of custom
ers buying or making inquiries as the foun
dation for future purchases. A growing de
mand was reported for property out Fifth ave
nue, which is fully up to Shadyside in point ot
popularity, and with a better assortment of
properties to select from. Lots at Maplewood
Park, Wilklnsburg, are going off like hot
cakes scarcely a day passing without several ot
them being sold. More attention is being paid
to Mt Washington, as its advantages as a place
of residence become better known. There are
few localities near the city which offer superior
climatic and sanitary advantages to those wish
ing to establish homes. Desirable lots there
are offered at very moderate figures fancy
prices beinc unknown.
Among the sales reported yesterday the fol
lowing are noted; Business property, 444 Fifth
avenue, S,a00; lotouxiiu, UDerty avenue, near
Wmeblddle, 52,925; two lots Maplewood park,
S425 and $400 respectively; house and lot, Ems
worth, $3,500; also vacant lot, same place, $750;
lot. Boundary street, Oakland, $215. Several
mortgages were placed on residence and busi
The Chicago Tribune of Sunday remarks:
Local real estate affairs kept up a loud and
lively hum last week. In many respects It was
one of the most satisfactory weeks of the year,
and to the majority of dealers in was one of
the busiest. It was satisfactory because it con
talned unmistakable signs that the present
strong market has a long lease of life ahead.
For two or three weeks previous there had
been comparative dullness and dealers had be
gun to ask themselves if the lull was going to
develop Into a full stop for the summer. Last
week answered that question in a most em
phatic manner. The best feature of the mar
ket was its broad andhealtful character. There
were no signs of speculation, no feverish in'
terest in any particular class of property.
There was good buying of acres but there was
no craze for them. Buyers were careful and
conservative and were disposed to subject
values to all possible tests before Investing.

Electric the Only Redeeming Feature of tho
The brokers f aceo. Captain Barbour In a dull
and listless manner when he made his usual
oration and opened the stock market yester
day. At the morning call Philadelphia Gas
was the only stock traded in. It opened at
35 and advanced to 85, where it stood at the
close. In the afternoon it was offeied at 38,
but without buyers. Wheeling Gas was weaker
at 29 bid, with 31 asked. Manufacturers' Gas

Bonkers Keport a Radical Improvement In
the Loan Market.
There was considerable activity in local
monetary circles yesterday, several of the
leading banks reporting heavy checking and
an average of depositing, while discounting
was of fair proportion's. Rates on call and
time paper were steady at 5 8, respectively.
Small notes were in good supply, trading evan
with exchange. The clearings were S2.187,
836 19, and the balances $310,947 20.
A Wood street cashier said: "The loan
market has undergone a marked change for
the better within a month or six weeks. Then
we had a larce amount of money for which we
could not obtain satisfactory rates. Now. in
consequence of a better demand, rates nave
stiffened and we are finding employment tor
about all we want to put out on profitable
terms. Several other banks are pretty well
loaned up, but others have not been so fortu
nate, and are still nursing idle capitaL Taken
all together, the monetary situation is a little
tighter than it was a few weeks ago, but there
is no scarcity, nor is there likely to be. Most
of the borrowed money Is being invested in
real estate, which Is the liveliest interest in

LIMA OIL A BEAR.
fresh Rumora Abont It Depress the Local
Market Tho New Rales.
There was a firm undertone to the petroleum
market when it opened yesterday, which was
intensified by Pinkerton appearing as a buyer.
This sent the price up a few fractions, bnt as
soon as he had secured all he wanted, there
being no other support, the price went down
like a plummet. A report that a new and suc
cessful process for refining Lima oil was among
the bearish Influences. The opening price was
83K, the lowest Sfyi and the close 83 U above
the opening and J above the close of Satur
day. The close would doubtless have been
lower but for fear of a scarcity of oil with
which to make clearings. Oil loaned at 25 cents
A broker said: "I do notlook for muoh of a
change either way at present. The proposed
change in the rules to include trading in fu
tures is hanging over the market, and very
little will be done until it is settled. The Pitts
burg Exchange will take action on the matter
next Saturday. Although it is meeting with
considerable opposition, I think the new plan
will be adopted. I am not very enthusiastic in
favor of the change, but it seems to be our
only hope for keeping the oil market from
dying of Inanition. One thing is certain, it
can't do any barm and it may result in great
good. It's worth trying, at all events."
Field news was of the ordinary character.
The Petrie well at Craf ton was due. The Rob
bins well, Washington county, was doing 19
barrels per hour. Tho Welracn was doing II
barrels per hour. The Clark No. 1 well, north
east of Knox, was through the sand and doing
five barrels per day. The Campbell No. 2 was
at the top of the sand, but without a showing
of oil. The well lately struck at Terre Haute,
Intk, shows no dlmnnltlon in the output. Sev
eral new wells are beinc sunk there, and 20
stock companies are forming. The oil is said
to be of superior quality.

Tarn the Attention of Wall Street Opera
tors to the Granger Stocks A Strong
Market With Almost Everything
New Yobk, May lS.-Althongh the stock
market to-day presented a more animated ap
pearance at times than usual of late it was still
dull and listless tor the general list, and the in
terest taken in the speculation was confined to
a few shares only and mostly to a single set of
operators There was however, an undeniably
strong tone, and the result of the day's trading
is to leave almost everything on the active list
materially higher than at the close on Satur
day. The favoraole nature ot the Government
crop report developed a marked disposition,
especially among the 'Western operators, to
buy the Grangers, and' those shares, with the
exception of Oregon Transcontinental and
New England, monopolized all the interest
there was in the dealings.
The buying, however, was believed to be
principally covering of shorts while the selling
was by the local traders In Oregon Trans
continental the contest becomes more interest
ing and the premium for the use of the stock
was l-64th per day, although there were sales at
seller 30 days at 1 per cent below the market
and the stock failed to advance. New England
was bought by Boston bouses and the trading
was accompanied by the old stories of a large
road seeking control, though nothing in the
way of news was received la regard to the road.
Atchison was also taken .for the account of
Eastern parties, but was helped by the buying
of the grangers more than anything else. There
was a smart spurt in the Milwaqkee, Lake
Shore and Western stocks and the common
moved np WMJS, while the preferred was not
TUESDAY, MAT Ifc
so active nor so strong. The movement Is said
to be based upon the growing confidence in the
management and the increasing earnings.
In the rest Ot the list the chances were insig
nificant and the dealings featureless. The
opening of the market was dull and fairly
steady, but the buying of theGrangersimparted
a strong tone to the market immediately, and
Rock Island led off with a gain of 1 per cent,
followed by Northwestern, SuPaul and the
others in turn. Transcontinental showed signs
ot weakness but had no effect upon the rest of
the list, and in the afternoon St. Paul reached
the highest point it has attained since the rally
from the great break last September. A small
realizing movement toward delivery honr set
tled prices off somewhat from the best figures,
but the close was dull and strong at about the
highest for the day. The only decline of im
portance was in Tennessee Coal, which fell off
i per cent; but Milwaukee, Lake Shore and
Western rose 3Jf. the preferred 1; St. Paul
Preferred 2, the common Hi, and Burlington
Railroad bonds were dull, and while there
was a firm to strong tone to the dealings of the
forenoon the market weakened toward the
close, and tho final changes, while generally for
slight fractions are qnito Irregular. Ihe trad
ing w as without special feature of note, and the
total transactions were only $1,099,000.

To cure Mrs. Thomas Hatton, and she suffered
on for 13 years. The aches and pains which
she experienced in almost every part of ber
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 her bed. She be
came very weak and emaciated, so that sho
only weighed 98 pounds. No one expected her
to lire, 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 years. 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
Please remember that the physicians of the
Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute never display
their patient's portraits in the papers. Neither
do they publish any testimonial, except with
the full consent or wish of the patient.
Furthermore, their testimonials are not from
some far off place where no such parties reside,
but from your own county and your own
city, witn tne iuu nama ana aaaress
given, thus proving their genuineness. The
Catrrrh and Dyspepsia Institute is thoroughly
established in Pittsburg, and thousands of
patients eladly testify to cures they have re
ceived. The treatment used does not consist
ot the so-called magnetic, or superhuman
agencies but medicines made from roots
and herbs, nnd compounded to suit
the requirements of each individual
case, thus removing not only the disease,
but the cause of the disease as well.
Ninety-five out of every hundred of the pati
ents treated at this Institute are those suffer
ing from Catarrh, which Is the certain fore

lished speak for themselves. They treat suc

CURED OF CATARRH.
MR. GEORGE LAMBERT, who lives on
Jones avenue, this city, near Twenty-seventh
street, has been cured of a very bad case of
catarrh by the physicians of the Polypatblc
Medical Institute, No. 420 Penn avenue. When
he applied for treatment he complained ot
much soreness in his lungsshortness of breath,
a choked np feeling In his throat, with much
dryness; the catarrhal secretion that he raised
from his throat and lungs was very tough and
tenacious; his eyes were weak and troubled
him very much about reading or seeing ob
jects distinctly. The disease also extended to
,bl3 stomach, so that he had great paiu after
eating. On account of his food sounng on
bis stomach he had much belching of gas and
was so bloated that his heart would frequently
palpitate, and gave him so much pain that he
thought he had heart disease. After becoming
cured, as above stated, he says:
"I am very glad to give my testimonial, and
shall always speak In praise of the doctors to
my many friends for curing me of this dread
ful disease, and I cheerfully recommend all
others suffering from chronic diseases to call
on these specialists, who will frankly tell you
what they can do for you.
The diseases treated successfully at the
POLYPATHIC MEDICAL AND SURGICAL
INSTITUTE, 420 Penn avenue, are catarrh,
diseases of the stomach and all forms of skin
and blood diseases, and they especially invite
those whose diseases have failed to improve
under the general practitioner's treatment to
call and examine their system of treatment
and cure, which have been tbe result of years
of careful study and Investigation. Office
