of Cattle at Liberty Yards
Falls Below Average.
Sheep and Lambs Active and Firm at
Prices of Last Week.
Office of rrrrsmjRG Dispatch, 1
Wednesday, May22, ISA J
The run of cattle was about 80 loads,
against 2 last week and 70 the previous
week. More thsn 50 loads were from Chi
cago. The grade of the Chicago cattle was
below the average. A leading; stockman Raid:
"I cave not seen as many low grade cattle from
Chicago Iot many months as those received this
week " Smooth grades of light fat Lutcticriug
stock were about op to last week's prices. Other
grades were 510c lower.
Heavy cattle were neglected. Buyers of ex
port stock have been giving the Liberty stock
yards the go-by or lato w eeks. The demand for
heavy catslc is 'down to zero.
A few oi this class were left over from lat
week, and to-day some 5 or 6 loads were
shipped east, having failed to find customers
here. A part of these w ere still in lira hands.
Ths ranee for smooth, light butcher cattle
was SC T5 to Sf4 10. Some very fancy. w clgbing
1.250 pounds, were sold to a-Johnstown butcher
at44. The time w as when heavy prime cat

competition with dressed beef has brought this
Our butchers aro unwilling Vo go beyond 4c,
claiming that beyond this there is no profit to
their trade.
Sberp RndLnmbs.
Supply and Quality varied very little from
last week. Prices of last week were fully main
tained. Demand was more active, and stock
was well cleaned up at rates of a week ago.
Both at Herr's Island and Kast Liberty this
week markets were stronger for sheep and
lambs than for anythiuc elso in lire stock
Buyers from Philadelphia and New lork
were in sharp competition lor stock, and mar
kets were stiong all along the line.
Markets were demoralized last week by rea
son of the heavy run. At the beginning of this
week receipts I egan to fall off and prices ral
lied from the lowest point. Between Monday
of last week and Monday of this there was
a decline of 4050c In the past day or two
there has been a rally of 1015c The rates to
day are M 60(4 70. One of our leading packers
reports prices at Chicago about the same as at
East LiDerty. At the former place hogs
drooped below $4 20 last week. To-aay they
are quoted at $4 60 and firm.

dency. Chicago Trade in wheat was slow to
day, fluctuations were light and within
a lower range, prices declining Jc be
low the lowest point reached yes
terday, recovered Jc and closed c lower than
yesterday. The shorts bought some, which
partially held the market in check. There
seems to be but little inducement to trade for
the present. Prices are too low to be attrac
tive for heavy short selling. At the same time
operators say they see nothing especially to
buy on, and are awaiting new developments.
Market advices were unfavorable to holders.
Only a moderate business wastransacted in
corn, prices showing but little change from
yesterday, being limited to He ranee. The
feeling developed was easier. The market
opened at about yesterday's closing, was firm
for a time but soon became easier, selling oft
He and closing KKC lower than j esterday.
Oats were In fair demand early, and a firmer
feeling prevailed. Trading centered chiefly in
June aud July, one large operator buying the
former and selling the latter, and at oue time
June commanded a slight premium over July,
but later an cislcr tone developed and prices
receded Hic
An active speculative trade was reported in
port, and the feeling was easy during the
greater portion of the day. Prices were irregu
lar within a small range. Opening sales were
made at about j ceterday's closing figures, but a
weak feeling was manifested and prices de-

little more strength, with fair buying on local
account, and prices rallied again. Toward the
cloe the feeling was easy, and prices receded

A fair business was transacted In the lard
market and the feeling was easy. Prices ruled

A weak and unsettled feeling prevailed in
the market for short ribs, and trading was

the market closed quiet at inside figures.

FIttsbnrc, With All Her Mnmmoth Mnchln
ery. Runs by Cora,
Ask the average man you meet how much
leather belting, gum belting, or any other
kind of belting is used in Pittsburg and Al
legheny cities, and while be would not be
likely to be able to tell you, 10 to 1 he would
express the opinion that the amonnt must be
very large; and there is just where be is off.
As the most prominent feature of the city is
its immense machinery, an idea has grown that
it must use a large amount of belting; but it is
because of the vast power of "that machinery
that very little belting is used. Most of the
connections on this account aro necessarily di
rect, thus doing away in the greater part with
Hartley Bros. 4 Co., the only belting manu
facturers in the citv, state that their local
trade In belting Is comparatively insignificant,
sack villages as Fall River, Mass . using more
of this kind of propulsive power than ail Alle
gheny county. They say the longest belt made
is 36 inches across: but they say thev cannot tell
what its horse power would be if fully devel
oped, as mechanical engineers' calculations do
not agree.

A Woman Kicks Because the House
She Lately Rented Has None.
How an Old Citizen Missed Making a Great
Fortune in Bloomfield.
Disagreeable weather made things rather
qniet at the real estate offices yesterday, and
some of the agents spent the time swapping
jokes and,telling stories. One ot them re
counted the case of a woman 'to whom he
had rented a house at Shadyside some time
in April. A daj or two ago she paid him a
visitand demanded a bay window, the house
having none. Shesaid she had alwaysbeen
accustomed to a bay window, and felt lone
some without one. Several rumors of im
portant deals were flying around, but could
not be definitely located. One was to the
effect that a busiuess property on Liberty
street, between Sixth and Tenth, had been
sold for $70,000. Another involved the
transfer of a property on the lower side of
Fifth avenne, between Smithfield and Grant.
Black & Baird sold another lot oa Boqnet
street, Oakland, showing there is a movement
in that direction. Two more of the Maplewood
lots were disposed of by J. R. Cooper 4 Co., a
Southslde lot was sold by Alles fc Bailey aud
one on .'Ellsworth avenue by J. F. Baxter.
Sales were made also by Samuel W. Black &
Co. and by James W. Drape fe Co. The latter
firm placed two mortgages on suburban prop
erty. A well-known gentleman, who was horn and
reared in Pittsburg, said yesterday: "When I
was a boy of 16 what is now known as Bloom
field, in the Sixteenth ward, was a farm with a
rail fence along the Philadelphia pike, now
Penn avenue. A friend of my father's urged
him to purchase this farm, which he could
have done for less than $200 an acre; but, al
though be had the money, he declined with
thanks, for the leason that the property was
inaccessible, there being neither streets nor
roads which would give free access to it. This
was about 185a The same property Is now
compactly built over, has good streets and all
other conveniences, and is worth $100,000 an
acre at least. The farm in question joined the
Wlnebiddle tract on the east and the Wool
slager on the west. Scnuetzen Park is one of
its distinguishing features. The fine new cem
etery gate, newly completed at a cost of $30,000,
is just across Penn avenne from the center of
the tract"
The citizens' kick against the proposed rail
way on Ridge avenue, Allegheny, is having the
desired effect, and if it does not head off the
scheme entirely it will give its promoters con
siderable trunblo and involve them in large ex
pense. Several Councilmen discussed the mat
ter yesterday. All of them expressed strong
opposition to the project. One of them said :
"1 would as soon think of giving the corpora
tion the right of way through the parks as
along Ridge avenue. Besides, a railway is not
needed there, the two in operation in the im
mediate vicinity affording all the traveling
accommodation the public neeaV'
The Braddock farmer should arise and pro
test. Agriculture is the most important in
dustry in the United'States, and yet the farm
ers have but a meager representation in Con
gress, much Delow that of the British House of
Commons or the French Chamber of Deputies,
as the following statement shows: British
House of Commons Total number of mem
bers, 670; agriculture. 162; Industry, 161; com
merce and trade, 127; professional men, 107;
army and navy, 66; office holders, 47. French
Chamber of Deputies Number of Deputies,
SS0; professional men, 270; office holders, 95; in
dustry, 61; agriculture, 72; commerce and trade,
62. United States House of Representatives
Number of Representatives 325, ot Territorial
Delegates 8, total, 333; professional men, 264; in
dustry, 24; commerce and trade, 24; agriculture,
2L To make the showing still worse for the
farmers, it should be observed that they form a
far larger proportion of our entire population
than is the case even in France, and altogether
more than in England.

The stock market yesterday reflected the
feeling engendered by the disagreeable weather
which prevailed from morning till night. The
strong spots were Pittsburg and Western com
mon, which advanced to 13 on sales of
100 shares, and Wheeling Gas, which
sold in a small way at 30. The most
active stock was Pittsbnrg Traction, but
holders had to make concessions to effect sales.
It was wanted to the extent of 350 shares at
53. At the opening 55 was old and 57 asked
for Electric, without transactions. In the af
ternoon it was struck by a cold wave and
dropped to 53 bid and 54 asked, but nothing was
done in it. The depression was due entirely to
the lack of a buying demand and the fears of
smallholders regarding the outcome of the
pendlDgsuit. The rest of the list was dull and
featureless. Bids, offers and sales were:

The oil market was comparatively strong yes
terday, but not remarkably active. The fluctu
atlons were wide enough to afford the scalpers
a good opportunity to turn an honest penny,
but they were not in a mood to take advantage
of it to an unusual extent.
The market opened with a bullish undertone
at 8214, hi above Tuesday's close, and, under the
influence of good buying, advanced during the
day to 8 which was the. best price reached.
It was then hammered down to 81, the lowest,
from which it rallied to 82-Ji above tho
opening where it ''stood when tho gong
A broker said: "To-day's oil market proved,
if proof were ncccssarv, that none of us know
much about It. I expected lower prices to-day
than yesterday, but 1 was fooled. In my opin
ion the advant e is a bull movement without
reason other than to put the shorts in a hole.
What the market will do to-morrow is more
than I can tell. It may go up a trifle and it
may go down. I think the latter contingency
the more probable."

Good Trodlnjr and a btroa. Feeling- In Wall

Everything; Fraction

New York, May 22. The stock market was
not so active to-day, bntthe tone of the deal
ings was stronger, especially for the Grangers,
Coal stocks and gas shares. There was some
lively covering in some of the favorites, and a
tew stocks made very marked advances. St.
Paul attracted most of the Interest, and the
steady buying In that stock was variously at
tributed to different influential parties. The
stock crossed 70 for the first time since the
break of last September. The bullish feeling
In the other Grangers met with somewhat of a
check from the decrease in earaines renorted
for the Northwester-! for April, and the' deal
ings in that stock wo-e not so large as usual of
The Coalers occupi. d a prominent place in
the market, and tlutgh Reading 'was first
among them In point oi -ctivity, Jersey Cen
tral showed most strength nd rose 2 per cent
on the expectation of a dividend in a short
time, and the figures reached were the highest
attained by that stock in many years. The
market again displayed an unmistakable
broadening tendency, aud several stocks which
nave oeen almost totally neglected oi late were
brought forward and advanced. The Gould
stocks were also more prominent, and Western
Union, after a period of Inaction, became ac
tive and moved up fractionally with the rest of
the list. Among the specialties there were
some wide fluctuations, and Pittsburg and
Western preferred, Oregon Navigation and a
few others were decidedly strong, while Mar
quette, Houghton and Ontonagon declined
sharply, though a portion of the loss was re
covered. The opening figures were higher and the
London figures were also higher, but London
was doing little or nothing in this market, and
was at no time a factor in the course of prices.
New England became a marked feature of the
dealings in the first few minutes, large Eastern
orders to buy being executed, but the demand
for tho stock died away toward noon, and it re
tired to a secondary position in the market
again. Chicago Gas took the lead in point of
activity In the early trading, hut it did not ad
vance much and later retired fractionally, while
the upward movement in the general list was
confined to small fractions only.
St. Paul and a few of the specialties showed
more strength toward noon, although the mar
ket began to show periods of comparative dull
ness, but Chicago Gas again became strong
after 12 o'clock and St. Paul attained the hlirh-
est figures; the Coal stocks came to the front,
and Jersey Central also developed the most de
cided strenfth. The best figures were gener
ally reached toward 2 p. m., after which reali
zations sagged the Iisfoff, but the close was
fairly steady at fractional gains In almost the
entire list.
Railroad bonds began the dav with a rather
quiet business, but they fully sympathized
with the improvements stocks, and later de
veloped a -marked activity and many material
gains were scored. The business of the day
foots up 2,341,000. Denver and Rio Grande re
ceipts contributed 205,000, Texas Pacific sec
ond Incomes 111,000 and Ft Worth and Den
ver firsts $137,000. EaBt Tennessee fives rose 2,
to 108: Ohio and Mississippi seconds 3, to 124;
Peoria, Decatur and Evansville firsts 2K. to
110; San Francisco sixes 2, to 121; Texas Central
sevens of 1909, 8, to 50, and Chicago Gas firsts
2Jf to 100.

C031PAN Y is organized for tbe purpose of pro
viding tho State of Oregon with an urgently
needed means of communication with other
States and foreign countries by means of a rail
road from YAQfUINABAY on the Paclflo
Ocean, running through the central portion of
the State to tbe eastern boundary thereof, a
uia-nco oi aooutow mnes, wnere connection
will be made with tbe railroad line already
built to that point, as well as with those under
constinction and projected.
YAQUINA BAY. from its commanding geo
graphical position and tbe scarcity of ports on
tbe Oregon seaboard, is destined to be the fu
ture great seaport of Oregon, for, among
others, the following reasons
ON THE SEA cennected by a railway with
tbe great agricultural districts in the State.
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 Yaqnlna.
Third The distance to the Pacific Ocean
from the heart of the Willamette valley by the
miles, while by tbe wav of Portland and the
Colnmbia River it Is 230 miles to tbe sea.
Fourth It is tbe terminus of a railroad trav
ersing an agricultural country of nusnrpassed
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 coakiron,
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
ern and Eastern Oregon will be carried ly the
PANY to Yaqnlna. and distributed from that
port, in about one-half the time cocsnmed, and
at about one-half the cost for transportation,
charged by any other existing or projected
The business Immediately available to tho
large business that will come to it. as Itsline is
pushed further eastward, nntil it reaches Boise
City, and there makes connection with the
present transcontinental lines as well as others
to be completed, demonstrates that Yaqnlna
Bay is to be the f utnre greatseaport of Oregon.
iuo buiurapujr ui hue eastern portion ot too
State ot Oregon, and tbe territory of Idaho,
compels all roads crossing Oregon over its
eastern border to enter the State at or near tha
Soint determined as its eastern terminus by tha
PANY. With adequate ocean shipping facilities to
handle the traffic there would now be available
sufficient business to meet all the fixed charges.
From the heart ot the Willamette Valley to
the sea the distance by tbe Oregon Paclflo
Railroad is bat 72 miles, while tbe shortest line
by other roads is 230 miles in length, which will
to hold tbe business against competition. As
distance and time add to tbe cost of transpor
tation it is simply an impossibUity f or compet
ing lines to handle the business at the same
rate as is done by the OREGON PACIFIC
RAILROAD COMPANY. Central Flltrm -
.tfcvi uciug -Miiwcia vuuiihrjr win oiavr Its
timber and coal supply from along tha line of
Cascade Mountains. The snnnlles of Mmhr
and coal will be taken East on the trains golnjr
to the great fertile plains of that district for
agricultural products to be delivered at the
port of Yaqnlna, thns securing traffic each way.
Thlsglves, without interference, the OREGON
PACIFIC RAILROAD the remunerative local
bnsiness, and will enable It to do through busi
ness at prices that will command its full share
of that traffic.
COMPANY will locate and own tbe 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
amount! to over nine hundred and fifty thou
sand acres. More than three-quarters of theso '
lands are open rolling plains and immediately
available for tillage.
Tbe franchise confers exceptional advant
ages on the Company, and among them is the
return to the Company, by tbe State, of all
taxes levied and collected until 1900. on tho
lands and other properties of the Company.
The company has in operation ISO miles of
continuous roaa, at tne enu oi wnicn it enters
the timber tract above referred to; CO miles are
in the hands of the Construction Department,
and 40 miles of roadbed through the Malheur
Valley are ready for rails. The whole line
will bo completed by tha autumn of 18001 Steel
rails for the comnletlon of the road, together
with fastenings, have been purchased.
Tho five million! of bonds now offered ars
tbe remainder of tbe total Issue of fifteen
millions provided for in the mortgage, and by
an arrangement between the Railroad Co-many
and Messrs. Barker Brothers A Co., ot Phila
delphia, the proceeds of these bonds are held
by that firm to be paid to the Railroad Com
pany only as the work of construction
