MTUKES LAID OUT.
Titusnlle Decides Oil Brokers Must
Stick to the Old Plan.
THE QUESTION FINALLY SETTLED.
s Kevievof the Keal Estate Situation from
, the Standpoint of an Agent
-i. 'lIBEETI STKELT DEAL CLOSED UP
The Tote of Titusville yesterday settled in
the' negative the question of dealing in oil
iutures. After the close of business many
brokers hung around the Exchange tele
graph office to learn the result, and when it
came there was both gratification and dis
appointment expressed, according as the
men receiving the news were friends or op
ponents of the departure. As Titusville
was all that was required-to defeat the rules,
nobody waited to hear from Bradford, which
was still wrangling over Enle 3, which pro
vides for dealing in certificate oiL
"We might as well shut up shop," re
marked a friend of the change.
"To-day's business don't look like it," re
plied one of the other fellows. "If we al
ways do as Veil we ought to be satisfied.
I think that the market will improve now that
this wet blanket has been removed. Its adop

Real estate is a trifle dull as compared with
the early spring boom, but that it continues to
be a lively element of business is shown by the
reports of sales published daily in this depart
ment of The Dispatch. In support of this
'statement an agent said yesterday: "J am
almost as bnsy as at any other time this season.
There is a steady, I may say crowing, demand
for nearly every description of property. I am
negotiating the sale of several business sites on
the Southsidc. Unimproved lots in the sub
urbs are in as great demand as ever and scarce
ly a day passes without more or less sales. The
number of bouses going up in and about the
. city is highly gratifying to the friends of im
provement. I wouldn't be at all surprised if
tbo original estimate of 4,000 should be reached.
Pittsburg is growing faster than at any other
time in her history."
"Is there any reason to apprehend a tumble
in prices T"
"No. I think that impossible under existing
conditions. There has been no boom no
flurry. Purchasers have proceeded cautiously.
The enhancement in values has been the re
sult of a legitimate demand, backed by abund
ance of capital, for which no equally safe and
profitable investment could be found. As most
ot the purchases are paid for and'have been or
will be built on and occupied by their owners, I
can see no reason for a reaction. 1 think real
estate has moved up to stay. The rapid growth
of the city demands the constant enlargement
of its boundaries and the erection of thousands
of houses every year to accommodate the in
creasing population. This alone is sufficient
to keep prices at the top. I think property
that is adapted to either residence or business
purposes is worth all that is asked for it. I am
not aware that any purchaser has lost money.
On the contrary,! know of many who have
made snug little fortunes. Hundreds of re
sales have been made at a handsome profit.
There is scarcely a piece of property in the city
or suburbs that could be bought to-day for the
price that was paid for it six months or a year
ago. As an instance of this I may cite one
case in my own experience. Three months ago
lot in the upper part of Edgewood, owned by
the National Bank of Commerce, was sold for
81,500. Last week the owner was offered 52,000
J ' '
r "Do you think prices have reached the top I"
" 'For the present probably they have. I
think so for several reasons. The demand is
not quite so pressing as it was earlier in the
season. This is always the case in summer.
Hot weather seems to take the snap out of peo
Then, again, the unsettled condition of
tswm trade, rendering the Income of thon-
ijjss of wage-workers uncertain, will deter

way clear to meet payments nromntlv. Sail. I
look for a steady movement all summer, and
for a revival, with possibly a higher level of
values, next talk Everything is in good shape
to justify this anticipation."
Among the important deals in realty that
were consummated yesterday was the sale by
C H. Lore, for Andrew Jackman, of twoots
Nos. 431 and 433 Liberty street, having a front
age of 43 feet, to D. H. Voigt and T. E. Ash for
S35,000 a trifle "over $900 a front foot, which is
considered a very reasonable figure for that
locality. There are two two-story buildings on
the property which will be torn down to make
room for a large business house. This and sev
eral other recent transfers of property in that
part of the city show that it has been aroused
by the spirit of improvement, and is deter,
mined to do its part in the work of making
Pittsburg the model city of the country.
MOVEMENTS IN STOCKS.
The Market n Little More Active, but Prices
The stock market was moderately active yes
terday in comparison with the previous day,
the sales amounting to 661 shares, of which
Pittsburg Traction, Pittsburg and Western
Railroad and Philadelphia Gas contributed
about five-sixths. Snitch and Signal was the
only thing that showed a decided advance,
selling at 24J against 24 on Monday. This
was on the strength of increasing business of
the company. None of the gassers developed
any strength, and all of them except Philadel
phia were neglected. The summer season
bringing rednccd earnings is unfavorable to
these stocks, and it is the opinion of many
brokers that bed-rock quotations have not been
reached. Electric was oifered down to 56
wiiuoui. ia&crb. j.b wouju ue too mucn to ex
pect an improvement in it, either in demand or
prices, until the pending suits are settled, after
which it will get on its feet again
Pittsburg Traction sold to the extent of 200
shares, which brought 5 The other tractions
were neglected. With the rapid growth of the
suburbs it is a little strange that these securi
ties are not in better demand. Some attribute
their condition to the manipulations of a bnll
clique, who want them at lower prices and are
raking in little jags here and there so as not to
arouse suspicion. The movement in Pittsburg
and Western was continued, but prices realized
were not materially different from those of the
previous day. This stock is being absorbed by
a few knowing ones, who will be able to spring
a surprise on the market one of these days.

The oil market yesterday was fair to mid
dling in point of activity and strength, trading
being of good proportions at all of the ex
changes. The supply of certificates was suf
ficient for all the wants of the day, and carry

in futures, thus killing the proposition. Brad

And Large Transactions In Wall Street
Stocks Irregularly Changed, Bat Ad
vanccs In the Blnjorlly-London
frellsund Chicago Buys.
NEW Yoek, May 2L The stock market was
again active to-day, with the interest centered
mainly in the grangers, "V illards and special
ties, and, while the room was in favor of a re
action, the buying was of snch nature as to
prevent any marked decline in any stock, and
to materially advance several of the
prime favorites. The buying was still
principally by the Chicago operators,
bnt there were sharp movements and large
transactions in the Coalers, VUlards and one or
two others. The movement in the Northern
Pacifies came to a halt to-day, and nothing new
was heard in the stocks, but after the first
hour the activity subsided and their prices aft
erward slowly yielded, and both are fractional
ly lower this evening.
Chicago Gas next took up the leadership of
the market, and on large purchases was ad
vanced about IK per cent, but it could not hold
the improvement in the face of sales to realize
and hammering by the bears. The anthracite
shares became prominent upon the announce
ment that there would be a meeting to-morrow
to talk over the situation with a probable ad
vance in prices later on. Reading once more
assumed its old position as leader of the mar
ket in point of activity, and very large blocks
of the stock were traded In. Jersey Central
later felt the stimulns,and its final advance was
nearly 2 percent The others, however, were
not not so prominent, and their fluctuations of

operators was the feature of the day, and the

the feeling among the insiders being very con
fident, and on the announcement of the dec
laration of the dividend of 1 per cent to-day it
quickly recovered its early slight losses and
rose 1 per cent further. Northwestern, Atchi
son and Rock Island also displayed marked
strength in view of the temper of the room, but
St. Paul was sluggish and without feature.
Oregon Transcontinental was lower this
morning and rapidly fell off 3 per cent and the
trading in the first few minutes was marked by
some sales at seller 3 and some cash, but the re
mainder of the day was bare of such trans
actions and the stock remained dull and steady
until the close. London was a seller to a lim
ited amount and the early prices -from that
center were lower than our last evening's fig
ures, and first prices here this morning were
.made f rom to X per cent lower in sympathy.
The early trading was also marked by a weak
tone, and fractional losses were sustained all
over the list during the first hour, but after
that time there was a decided change for the
better in the temper of speculation, and
Chicago Gas and the Grangers became the
leading stocks. In the afternoon the Coalers
Came to the front, but the highest prices were
generally reached toward 1 r. Jf, when the
bears succeeded in bringing about another re
action. Th e last few minutes of business, how
ever, was turned to account by purchasers, and
the close was firm to strong. The unlisted de
partment was barren of feature, except for the
weakness in Cotton Oil at the opening, and
only a portion of the loss was recovered. Bruns
wick was steady at 22?f2 The final changes
are irregular, but advances are in a majority.
Jersey Central is up 1. Pullman V Chesa
peake and Ohio first preteired, 1 per cent, and
others fractions, while the only marked decline
was in Oregon Transcontinental, which lost 2.
Rab-oad bonds were quite active1 to-day, but
the animation was like that In shares conpned
to a few leading issues, and out of the total
day's business of $1,911,000 Fort Worth and
Denver contributed $125,000, Beading first in
comes $118,000 and the Duluth, South Shore
and Atlantic 6s $107,000. The tone of the deal
ings was at first rather heavy and declines fol
lowed in all the prominent issues traded in, but
later under the stimulus of 'renewed buying
l the market improved and a general recovery
took place, wnicn ieit prices nut sngnuj
changed and important differences to-nigbt are
few in number. The advances include Burling

A NEW OIL WELL
It Is at Osborne, and the Ohio Valley Gas
Company Snnk It.
While drilling for gas at Osborne station,
on the Port Wayne Railroad, the Ohio "Val
ley Gas Company struck an oil well yester
day on Mitchell's farm. As soon as it was dis
covered that a good flow of oil bad been struck
the company put a guard on the place, and no
body is allowed to get near it. '
Mr. West Guffey was asked what he thought
about the prospects of oil at Osborne station,
and said: "I don't think thero is anything in
it. Whenever oil has been found in Allegheny
county the well has cost more to drill than the
profit from the oil amounted to.
"There are only two places in Allegheny
connty where there is any oil. at Crafton and
at Brush Creek, and this new find will turn out
to be nothing when it has been investigated."

In New York and Chicago prices are lc stronger
than they were last week. Eggs, too, are firmer
than for a week or two past. New cheese is
steadily improving In quality, but prices are
unchanged. A drop is looked for soon. New
potatoes come in freely from Mobile, and are
in good demand at $5 per barreL The cool wave
has slightly checked the boom in tropical
fruits, but demand is still fair. The quality of
strawberries coming to the market is nothing
to brag of. Supplies begin to come from Nor
folk. The home crop is not expected to reach
the average by reason of late frosts.

Wheat Continues to Tpmblo With Only a
Local Demand Corn nnd Oats Steady
Hog Prodncts Unsettled nnd
Chicago. a lower rango of prices was
established for wheat to-day and the feel
ing was weak most of the session. There was
only a moderate trade and no new features
were developed. Trading was mainly local,
and the operations of a prominent floor trader
on the selling side proved sufficient to create
At the opening the market was a trifle firmer
and sales were made c overdosing figures
of yesterday, but rather free offerings caused
a gradual shrinkage in values and prices de
clined c then ruled steady, moderate buying
at this reduction holding prices andhe market,
closed about Hs lower than yesterday. The in
fluences brought to bear on the market were
generally of a character to create weakness.
A steady feeling prevailed in corn and prices
showed but little change from yesterday. Thero
was a good local demand from the shorts who
sold yesterday and this had a tendency to ab
sorb offerings and steaoy the market. The
market opened a shade above the closingprices
of yesterday, fluctuated within He range and
closed Vi&Aa higher than yesterday.
In oats a fair business was transacted within
a narrow range of prices.
More business was done in pork, and the
market was somewhat unsettled and prices
irregular. Early sales were made at 6010c ad
vance, bnt this appreciation was soon lost.
Later the mark6t was stronger and prices
rallied 20025c, but settled back again 2j5c,
There was more doing in lard and prices were
irregular. The market opened weak atyester
day's close, but prices were advanced 205c
Later the market was not quite so firm and
prices favored buyers near the close
Considerable interest was manifested in the
market for short ribs and trading was active.
The market opened tame at yesterday's close,
but the demand was fairly active and prices

MB. GEO. Tv HARTBEY'S EXPB
BTFINOE. Another Patient "Whom the Physi
cians Failed to Help
Cured "by Dr. Smith, the Magnetic -Physician,
Dr. Smith is performing some of the- mo'
wonderful cures ever witnessed In Plttsbnrg.
Scores and hundreds of Invalids who have
hitherto been unable to find relief from their
sufferings are being restored to health in larga
numbers through Dr. Smith'sstrange magnetta
power. It is exceedingly Interesting to seo
and talk with the vast number of invalids But
tering from all manner of complaints who aro
brought to the doctor for his favorable or un
favorable opinion of their diseases. It is also
gratifying to observe the change that take -.
place m many of these seemingly helpless cases.
Scores of Invalids who are so weak and feeble
that they have to be carried to the doctor ia
chairs and on beds are restored to health in a
short time. Some are cured by one, some by
two magnetic treatments, while others require
more. The following very interesting case
were cured by our magnetic treatment:
Mr. Geo. T. Hartrey. who resides at Spring.
dale. Pa., has been a great sufferer from coih
sttpation hemorrhoid ipiles) and from fistula
for a number of years. Pile tumors as large a.
a black walnut made their appearance several
years ago. and were the cause of much suffer
ing. These tumors were often prolapsed, ana
would bleed so profusely as to cause extreme
prostration. As the disease advanced four fls
tulas made their appearance, and were so pain
f ul that he was obliged to give up his business
and was unable to perform any manual labor.
Mr. Hartrey had tried the skill of a number of
physicians but bad been unable to find relief
until he applied to Dr. Smith, the magnetio
physician, at No. 602 Penn avenue, who cured
bun permanently without the nse of the knife
or ligature. Dr. Smith agreed to cure him for
a certain sum of money, which Mr. H. paid,
him at the beginning of the treatment. Mr.
Hartrey was permanently cored in a short
time and may be referred to.
Mr. Peet, owner and manager of Imperial
Hall was a great sufferer from vericocele for
many years. He applied to Dr. Smith and was
permanently cured. He may be referred to.
Mr. John Foley, who resides at MUIvale, was
taken with a terrible pain in his right shoulder
upward of five months ago. The attack came
on suddenly, like a shock of paralysis. The
arm became useless in a few moments' time.
He could not nse the hand nor move a finger.
A short time after the attack he began to ex
perience pain in the shoulder. The pain in
creased in severity for a number of days, when
it was discovered that there was an accumula
tion of pus in the shoulder joint. Mr. Foley
applied to a doctor, who opened the shoulder
with the knife. Large quantities of pus was
discharged at the time and a fistula formed,
which continued to discharge a thin acrid pus.'
In this helpless and hopeless condition he ap-
nueu to iir. omito, me magnetic pnysician,
at 502 Penn avenue, and was enred per
f ectljC He has regained the use of his arm.
J. C. Henderson haa been tortured with piles
for ten years. He was cured by Dr. Smith la
Dr. Smith cures all forms of female com
plaints without the use of Instruments or ex
posure of the person. He also cures piles and
rupture without the use of the knife, or pain
to the patient, nor detention from business.
He treats and cures cancers in less time and
with less pain than by any other known
' Dr. Smith is permanently located at 02 Penn
avecne, where everybody can go from 9 a. it.
till 7 p. 31. The doctor consults free and cures
after all other means fail. He treats every
form of disease known to bnmanitv. Go to
02 Penn avenue and consult him if yon wish to
get well. Letters of inquiry must contain two
