Prices a Shade Lower--SkcE and Lamls
BL01F AT A SHARP DECLINE
Office of PnTSBtmo Dispatch,
- The supply Taxied reiy little from last
week, and markets were a "fair average for
this season of the year. The heaviest
article on the market was hogs. The big
ran in Chicago last -week and the sharp
drop in prices now wields a decided Influence
lor ill n hog markets here.
The general view obtained from talks with
'drovers and batchers wis that prices were 10c
lower than last week. The supplies wfcre above
the average in quality, and while prices were a
little off, markets ruled firm at the decline.
A regular buyer at Herr's Islands reports
that $4 50 was asked tor a bunch of prime 1,400
pound steers of a better quality than some last
week for which $4 70 was askei Though non-committal
as to rates, the price he paid was
inder S4 50. Prices as given by drovers were
as follows: Choice beaw Western Deeves, 1.50O
to 1,600 pounds, 4 90S 00: medium weights,
1,200 to 1.400 pounds, 4 654 80: prime fight

Markets arehorougbly demoralized. Though
there has been a big tumble in price at all
live stock centers, there are few willing to buy
at the decline. On Thursday mixed packing
hogs dropped to $1 17 at Chicago. Though
there has been a slight rally since, markets
continue slow at 25c below ruling rates of a
week ago. The bulb of the receipts were held
by N eedy and Smith. The range of prices was
WTO to $475 for heavy weights, and 54 85 to
$4 90 for light.

The Bridge Jamplnr Crank Lenps Safely
Over Passaic Falls.
JfEW Tobk, May 20. Steve Brodie, the
bridge jumper, jumped over Passaic Falls
this morning and came off without damage.
Tot the past three months Brodie has en
tertained an insane idea that it was neces
sary In order to perfect his record as a
jumper from high elevations, to rival the
late lamented Sam Patch by jumping from
some of the places which the latter gentle
roan had honored by his presence. This
idiotic whim culminated about March 1
in an expensive trip to Bochester, where
he was only deterred from jumping over
the Genessee Palls by the fact that there
was only five feet of water nnder him.
vIt will be remembered that Patch lost his
life at this place by jumping from a plat
form erected at one side of the falls and that
his body was not recovered for several
days. .After failing in this endeavor Steve
looked with longing eyes toward the Passaic
Palls, over which Patch jumped with safety"
a short time previous u nis leap at xtoches
ter. He made an investigation of the falls
and decided that it could be done, and this
morning he did it.

Chicago A fair business was done in wheat
to-day, and there was a strong feeling early,
but later it was weak. July opened about the
same as Saturday's dose, eased off HSMfr then
advanced preceded KKc. ruled irregular,
closing Kc lower than Saturday. The firm
ness and early advance were attributed to the
prospective large decrease ih the visible supply.
The shorts commenced to cover; and there
was some buying In anticipation of getting bet
ter prices. Prices were steadily advanced, but
when the visible supply was announced there
was considerable wheat placed on sale at the
advance, under which prices receded, and the
closing was weak. '
A fair business was done In corn within a
narrow range. The large decrease In the visi
ble supply and the active shipping demand
were the principal influences in the market
and tended to create a firm feeling. The mar
ket opened at Saturday's closing prices, was
steady, fluctuating within M)c and closed
the same as on Saturday.
Oats were quiet and steady and without new
features of importance: price changes were
confined to lc range.
Mess pork attracted very little attention.
The feeling was a little stronger early and
prices were advanced 57c. Later, however,
the market weakened and prices settled back
12l5c, and closed rather quiet.
A dull and easy feeling prevailed in lard;
prices ruled about 2jc lower and the market
Trading was only fairly active in short ribs.
The market was weak, prices declined 67c

HEW ENTEEPEISES SPBIHGIKG UP
The Oakland distrlot in the vicinity of
Linden Grove, ib' beginning to attract the
attention of real estate buyers by reason,
among other things, of the improved means
of transit furnished by the loop of the Fifth
avenue cable cars, which enables people to
come and go at pleasure and without an
noying detention as formerly. The want of
this has been something of a drawback to
this locality, which nature and art have
made one of the most attractive spots in the
East End; and the remedying of the defect
will undoubtedly enhance the value of prop
erty there to a considerable extent A
number of transfers of building sites have
already taken place, and others are in con
templation. It possesses all the advantages
of a finished' neighborhood, having water, gas,
paved streets and other alluring features of
civilization and refinement.
What is- known as the Mellor property, on
Boquet street, in the rear of Oakland square,
was sold yesterday, through Reed B, Coylei
Co.. for 515,00a It fronts 237 feet, more or less,
on Boquet street. The purpose of the buyers
Is to improve it. Property in that section of
the city has latterly been in very active de
mand. Wilkinsburg was represented among the
Oklahoma hustlers by a young lady. Miss
Hattie Fuhrer, who is pretty and accomplished,
and on the sunny side of 2a She has shown
rare energy and business tact from a very early
age. In March she went to Armstrong, in the
southern part of Kansas, to visit friends. While
there she caught the Oklahoma fever, and re
solved to become a squatter. At thi proper
time, accompanied by Mr. Northup and his
family, well known in Pittsburg, she set out for
the promised land. On the day that the
territory was thrown open to the
army of invaders she was at Fort
Reno, where she expected to secure a claim,
but stood no chance, as the soldiers and officers
of the fort, as she says, stood in with their
friends and outsiders were left out in the cold.
She and her companions then rode post haste
to a point on the North Fork of the Canadian
river, about 20 miles from tee fort, where they
secured claims, Miss Fuhrer's among the best.
It consists of 160 acres of timber land of exceed
ing fertility. She has already been offered 5500
for her claim.but refused it. When last heard
from she was living in a tent on her claim, but
was making arrangements for building a log
cabin. She is delighted with that part of the
country. Miss Fuhrer has set an example that
might be followed by other young ladles with
profit to themselves and the community.
Captain Wells, who is making a survey of'
the streets of Wilkinsburg preparatory to
their further improvement, has ascertained
that the grade at the corner of Penn avenue
and Wood street in that borough is 245 feet
above low water mark at the Point In Pitts
burg. This topographical fact explains the
sense of superiority over their neighbors which
is said to characterize the people of Wilkins
burg. They look down on them.
New enterprises are starting up or being
talked of In various parts of the country.
Among them are the following: Nevada City,
Nev., has just acquired a foundry. 8an Fran
cisco expects to get one of the iron and steel
plants which a 310,000.000 foreign company is to
establish in the United States; Henry Ham
mond represents the company In that city. A
new Robinson woolen mill is being erected at
South Windham, Me. Olneyviile, R. L, is to
have a three story woolen mill, owned by
Charles Fletcher. The Bennington, Vt, woolen
mills, which have been idle for three years,
have been sold for 8 per cent of their original

said: "It's as dry as a contribution box." Only
three stocks were traded in, the sales of which
amounted to 270 shares. All the gassers were
weaker. Electric was a trifle stronger, but neg
lected. "I think I can buy it at a lower figure,"
remarked a broker with orders for the stock.
The Tractions we're lifeless, except Central,
200 shares of which went at 30. Switch and
Signal was up a trifle, but only 20 shares of it
were wanted at the price. The strongest feature

GOOD FOR THE SEASON,
Clearing Honso Flcnres Show a Larce,
Healthy Movement In Trads Circles.
The local monetary situation yesterday was
of the qniet and easy sort that has been its
only distinguishing feature for some time.
Checking was of good proportions, but other
routine lines were barely up to the average.
The amount of paper offered for discount was
insufficient to make more of an Impression
upon the store of idle capital, and rates were
easy and unchanged. Manager Chaplin, ot the
Clearing House, got out a good report, the ex
changes being 52,452.107 21, and the balances
5420.259 OS, showing a larce movement in trade
circles for the season.

A Quiet and .Listless Slarkct Bradford
Stock on the New Bales,
The oil market was dull and featuroless yes
terday, brokers appearing to take greater in
terest in the result of the vote on the new rules
at Bradford than in operations On the floor.
After a long wrangle overrules, without reach
ing a vote, the meeting was adjourned until to
day, when Titusville will also take action on
the same question. ,
The market opened at 81c s above Satur
day's close and almost immediately sold down
to SOJfc, advanced to 81 and hung around
that point until near the cloie. when it slumped
to 81c. which was -the closing figure, with a
tolerably good feeling over the prospect of
doing a little better this morning. A broker
said: "I think oil will open in the morning
slightly above to-day's close and then lose its
grip." Carrying was flat, Indicating enough
oil to go round. Field news was unimportant

ACT1TE AND STRONGER
Wall Street Dominated by the Balls, Who
Give Stocks n Toss Subsidence of the
Grangers and Coalers
Netv York, May 2a The stock market was
more active to-day than on any day since the
Centennial holidays, but there was less excite
ment than during the last few days ot last
week, while a firm to strong tone marked the
dealings from opening to close. The traders
were inclined to sell the list on the theory that
the short interest had been eptirely eliminated
from the market, and in some shares they did
succeed in causing a small reaction and in
others preventing the advance which otherwise
might have taken place. The transactions in
Oregon Transcontinental were smaller and of
less prominence in the market, though the
stock opened with an advance of 3 per cent.
(This figure, however, was not exceeded during
the day and the stock afterward aedlned
steadily until It touched 33, against 45 at the
opening. Cash sales at first showed a differ
ence of about 2 per cent from tho regular
transactions, but this difference slowly
dwindled down to before the close of busi
ness. The stock finally closed at about the
lowest for the day.
The excitement in that stock, however, was
shifted over to the Northern Pacifies, in which
there was very good buying, especially from
Philadelphia, and the traders also turned in to
buv, the rumor being that there was another
contest for the control of that company, grow
ing out of the Transcontinental matter. The
activity and advance in the stock increased as
the day wore along, and in the last hour
the business done was unusually large,
while at the -highest prices the advances
were between 2 and 3 per cent. The Grangers
were also very prominent in the market and all
moved up slowly on a very fair business. The
coal stocks were not neglected and all made
advances, though Jersey Central, Lackawanna
and Delaware and Hudson were most promi
nent. Union Pacific was rather heavy, though
the stock was not activo and did not at any
time occupy a prominent position in the
marker. The rest of the list was quiet and
The opening was made on a moderate degree
of activity, and first prices were generally lrom
to per cent higher thau Saturday's closing
prices, and while Transcontinental was 8 per
cent higher, it rapidly declined 6 per cent,
though this had seemingly no effect upon the
rest of the list, which displayed a firm to strong
tone and advanced slowly. The Northern
Pacifies soon came into notice, and the com
mon started up before noon, while the preferred
did not feel the stimulus until later. The sell
ing of the traders resulted in fractional decline
in the general list, in which Chicago Gas was
most prominent, but the losses were confined
to small fractions generally. The Northern
Pacifies continued to rise steadily, and in the
last hour the remainder also again moved up,
the market closing fairly active and strong.
Transcontinental shows a loss of 3 per cent,
and a few other stocks are fractionally lower,
but the majority arc higher this evening.
Northern Pacific rose 3. the preferred 2K;Man
itoba. Jersey Central, 1 per cent, and South
Pacific, 1. '
Railroad bonds were somewhat, more ani
mated to-day, and the firm tone which has
marked the dealings of late continued, leaving
most of thelssues traded in fractionally higher
with the declines few and far between. The
sales of all issues aggregated SL7S2,000,or which
Dulutb, South Shore and Atlantic lsts contri
buted 5131.000. andtheChesaneakfl nnd OhlnM
5112,000. Among those which are higher this
evening, Chicago, Burlington and Northern
lsts rose 3 to 103, and Mobile and Ohio new 6s 2
to 116. St, Louis, Arkansas and Texas lsts, ex
coupoo, lost 2 at i8, and the 2nds 2 at 25.

Our Foreign Market for Cereals and Other
Farm Products Shown to be Quite
Limited England Not so Very -Slow
In Wheat Rnlslng.
Washington-, May 20. The May re
port of the Statistician of the Agricultural
Department contains the result of the inves
tigation of the deficiencies or surplus of
each European nation, especially in the
production of American agricultural products
that seek foreign markets. As a s'nglo year's
data would be misleading, the average imports
and exports of ten years are taken to obtain
the net deficiency of surplus. The net Euro
pean deficiency is thus shown as to the cereals,
fibers, butter, cheese, etc., in connection with
European production. The question of possi
ble enlargement of exportation In quantity and
variety is canvassed, and the opportunities for
displacing any importation by enlarged pro
duction are pointed out. The investigation
was made pursuant to the following resolution,
Eassed at the meeting of the National Grange,
eld in Topeka, Kan., last fall:
Kewlved. That the Commissioner of Agricul
ture be requested to inquire, through the consular
system ofUovernment or otherwise, what foreign
nations are now Importing agricultural products,
anu ascertain what no9slbilltles there would be to
jortlne agricultural proaucts,
possibilities there would be to
ions for the disposal of our
establish trade relations for the disposal of our
sumlus agricultural products arc now imnorted
that our country and climate is capable of produc
ing, and lay the same before Congress, and puh
llsn for the Information of farmers.
Some of the figures given in the statement
prepared by Mr. Dodge are startling. As to
wheat, he says that Europe is practically the
only market that America can have for this
cereal, and she imports only 144.000,000 bushels
a year, raising 1,200,000 bushels herself more
than half of the world's crop and twice that of
all America. Of the European deficiency the
United States supplies 95.000,000 bushels. In
oats and barley mere is a very small interna
tional trade, Europe importing only 19 000,000
bushels of oats and the United States export
ing 2.500,000 bushels. Of barley this country
imports 7,500,000 bushels. Rye is the great
bread grain of Eastern and Central Europe,
and Russia alone produces more than
does the United States. Europe imports not
less than 1,600,000 bushels, and the United States
exports less than 3,000,000 bushels. The receipts
of European countries requiring maize do not
make a sum half as large as the product of Illi
nois or of Iowa or Missouri. QreatBritainxakes
nearly three-fourths of the total, or 62,000,000
bushels, and this country exports 68,000,000
bushels. The deficiency of France could be
supplied by McLean county, Illinois, and Ger
many requires still less. jKussia and Roumania
have a surplus, and Southern Europe grows
enough for home consumption.
St. Lotjis Receipts, 231,485 pounds,

THE ORKGOtf PACIFIC RAILROAD -COMPANY
is organized for thepurpose of pro
viding the State of Oregon with an urgently
needed means of communication with other
States and foreign countries by means of a rail
road from TAGUINABAY on the Pacific
Ocean, running through the central portion of
the State to the eastern boundary thereof, a
distance of about 600 miles, where connection
will be made with the railroad line already
bniu to that point, as well as with those under
construction and projected.
YAQUINA BAY, from its commanding geo
graphical position and the scarcity of ports oa.
the Oregon seaboard, is destined to be the fu
ture great seaport of Oregon, for, among;
others, the following reasons:
First-It is the ONLY PORT IN OREGOff
ON THE SEA connected by a railway with
the great agricultural districts in the State.
Second THE OREGON PACIFIC RAIL
ROAD crosses the four north and south lines
of railroad in the Willamette valley, the great
agricultural district of Oregon, and the Wil
lamette River at Albany, gathering business to
be delivered at the port of Yaqulna.
Third The distance to the Pacific Ocean
from tbe heart of the "Willamette valley by tho
OREGON PACIFIC RAILROAD is only 73
miles, while by the way of Portland and tho
Columbia River it is 230 miles to the sea.
Fourth It Is the terminus of a railroad trav
ersing an agricultural country of unsurpassed
fertility, producing millions of bushels of grain
annually and large yields of other agricul
tural products, and supporting herds of cattle,
sheep and horses. The railroad also passes
through a country rich in deposits of coal,iron.
gold and silver, and, for 50 miles, through one
of the finest bodies of timber anywhere In the
world. The timber district has been preserved
to this time by the absence of needed railroad
Fifth The whole business of Central. South,
era and Eastern Oregon will be carried by tho
OREGON PACIFIC RAILROAD COM
PANY to Yaquina. and distributed from that
port,' In about one-half the time consumed, and
at about one-half the cost for transportation
charged by any other existing or projects
The business immediately available to tha
OREGON PACIFIC RAILROAD, and tho
large business that will come to Ir. as its line is
pushed further eastward, until it reaches Boise
City, and there makes connection with tha
present transcontinental lines as well as others
to be comnleted. demonstrates that Yaaulna
Bay Is to be the future greatseaport of Oregon.
The topography of the eastern portion of tho
State ot Oregon, and the territory of Idaho,
compels all roads crossing Oregon over its
eastern border to enter the State at or near ths
point determined as Its eastern terminus bytbo
OREGON PACIFIC RAILROAD COM
PANY. With, adequate ocean shipping facilities to
handle ths traffic there would now be) available
sufficient business to meet all the fixed charges.
From the heart of the Willamette Valley to '
the sea the distance by the Oregon Paciflo
Railroad Is but 72 miles, while the shortest lino
by other roads Is 230 miles in length, which will
enable the OREGON PACIFIC RAILROAD
to hold the business against competition. As
distance and time add to the cost of tranroor-
"tatioo. it is simply an impossibility f or compet
ing lines 10 oanaie uiej Business ai ine same -rate
as is done by tbe OREGON PACIFIC
RAILROAD COMPANY. Central Eastern:,
Oregon being a treeless country will draw its
timber and coal supply from along the line of
tho OREGON PACIFIC RAILROAD in tho
Cascade Mountains. The supplies of timber
and coal will ba taken East on the trains going
to the great fertile plains of that district for
agricultural proaucts to De delivered at tba
port of Yaquina, thus securing traffic each way.
This gives; without interference, the OREGON
PACIFIC RAILROAD the remunerative local
business, and will enable It to do through busi
ness at prices that will command its full share
of that traffic
THE OREGON PACIFIC RAILROAD
COMPANY will locate and own the towns
along the line of its road, and reap the benefits
resulting therefrom. The principal lands
through which the Company's line runs and is
located are owned by the Company, and
amounts to over nine hundred and fifty thou
sand acres. More than three-quarters of these
lands are open rolling plains and Immediately
available for tillage.
Tha franchise confers exceptional advant
ages on the Company, and among them is the
return to the Company, by tbe State, of aRr
taxes levied and collected until 1900. on tbe
lands and other properties of the Company.
The company has in operation 13S miles of
continuous road, at the end of which it enters
the timber tract above referred to: 30 miles are
in the hands bf tbe Construction Department,
and 40 miles of roadbed through the Malheur
Valley are ready for rails. The whole line
will be completed by the antnmn of 1890. Steel
rails for the completion of tbe road, together
vritn iasiemns, nave ueen purcuaseo.
The five millions of bonds now offered are
the remainder of the total issne of fifteen
millions provided for in the mortgage, and by
an arrangementbetween tbeRailroad Company
and Messrs. Barker Brothers A Co., of Phila
delphia, the proceeds of these bonds are held r
by that firm to be paid to the Railroad Com
pany only as the work of construction
