Tjow temperature has favorably affected
the butcher trade the past week, and the
result is seen in a more active market oi all
kinds of live stock. The indications at
Herr's Wand yards at 10 o'clock this mornlnc

purposes would find ready customers. Buyers
o were on hand early, and apparently ready to
tale all that was on the market.
Receipts were 630 head. This included 200
head for tho Winter and Dellenbach abattoir,
on the island. In general prices were a shade
lowerthan last week, except for very desirable,
smooth, light butchering stock. But markets
were very active and strong at the decline.

to be no demand, and quite free offerings.
A fair trade was reported in corn early in the

A BROKER'S OPIUM.
He Sees Ko Season Why Stocks Are
in the nt and Predicts a Boom.
A LOCAL PKOPflECI FULFILLED.
Transactions in Eealty Show That the
Market is Still on Its Feet.
XASKEE SECURITIES F0F0LAB ABROAD
The fact that local stocks are in the rut
was brought to the attention of a "Wood
street broker yesterday evening. He said:
S'Of course I know they Are dull, but I
see no reason why they should be so. They
are dull because the market prices are too
high or too low for the orders now on band.
Buyers hope by waiting to get lower figures, i
while sellers think the delay will Improve
their chances. This is the only reason for
the prevailing dullness that I can think of.
As between these two parties I think the
former are making a mistake. Nearly all
of the securities represented on the local board
are bound to command better prices than they
realized for some time. This conflict between
the longs and the shorts is what is holding the
market down. But I can see no reason, as I
said before, why stocks should be dull. The
abundance of money should alone be sufficient
to stimulate speculation, which is all right if
conducted with caution. The foreign and do
mestic markets are active, with a firm tone. In
dicating confidence in the future Railroad
earnings are good, new nses for electricity are
being discovered almost daily, gas shows no
shrinkage, the rapid settlement of the suburbs
is enhancing the value of traction and electric
roads, and the crops were never more promis
ing. All of these things are favorable to
higher prices. 1 think the Drokers will reach a
compromise before long, and then look out for
a boom. It may not come before f all,but come
The author of tne following incident may
not have worn the mantle of Elisha. but he was
a prophet nevertheless. John Wallace, the
pioneer jeweler of Pittsburg; whose place of
business was on the corner of Market street
and Fifth avenue, about 1842, resided in a cot
tage on the bluff overlooking Millvale, now
Ben Venue station. He had a sou named
William, who afterward became a leading
United Presbyterian minister, preaching for
several years at Sewickley, where his health
failed him. He then went to New Jersey,
where he died a few months ago. Taking this
boy to the edge of the bluff one evening Mr.
Wallace pointed out to him the valley below,
then awild,uninhablted ravine, and said: "I may
not live to see tbe time, but you probably will,
when the valley at our feet will be devoted to
traffic and lined with railroad tracks, bearing
freight and passengers from all parts of the
country." This prophecy has been literally
fulfilled. The son after reaching man's estate,
remembering the words of his father, uttered
over 40 years before, a year or two before his
death, accompanied by a friend or two, re
paired to the same spot where he had stood
when a child, and related the incident, adding:
"Father always had great faith in tho future of
Pittsburg. 'He firmly believed up to the time
of bis death that it was destined to become one
of the greatest cities In the world."
There continues to be a good demand for
realty, and sales of large tracts and single lots
are of daily occurrence. Prices are of an
elastic nature, depending altogether upon
locality, situation and convenience of access,
but it may be said that they show a hardening
tendency, as favorite sites are becoming scarce.
One of the most important of recent sales was
that of 11 acres near tho proposed reservoir of
the Wilkinsburg water works, at what was con
sidered a good price, but the figure was with
held by the agent. This is a new district, and
as it Is favorably situated a brisk demand for
lots there is almost assured. Lots at Maple
wood Park, at Edgewood and in the vicinity of
the Wilkinsburg gas well are selling very fast,
knd they 'are consfdered a good investment
Tne reported sale of tho McKelvy farm could
not be confirmed, but if not sold ontright it is
certain it will bo subdivided in the fall. Mr.
McKay is making preparations no build two
handsome dwellings at Edgewood, and two
two-story brick business houses will soon be
underway at Wilkinsburg. Everything con

turned from a business trip to London. In an
interview be said: "When I was in London I
was surprised to see the interest shown in
American securities. The speculative interest
seemed centered in tbe American department.
All American reports were read with interest,
and the trading was far larger than on my visit
there a year age Our English couslns,dlsplay
an interest in our affairs that we little appreci
ate. Tbe English newspapers do not devote a
very great deal of space to our matters, but
nearly all matters of importance are cabled
over and are bulletined on the Exchanges.
'Rather progressive people,' I heard a promi
nent Englishman say when he read a bulletin
announcing the opening of Oklahoma Terri
tory and the establishment of a city with 20,000
inhabitants, the election of Mayor and board
of alderman, all in the same day." ,

hung until about 2 o'clock, when it sold up to

Stocks Hold Lust Week's Advance and Add
n Little to It Some of tbe Special
ties Develop Great Strength-Lending-
New York, May 27,-The stocjc market
beiran the new week with a continuance of the
strong tone which characterized It throughout
the last week, while the broadening of the
speculation was very marked and the volume
of business was still larger than on any day of
last wees, witn tne result of leaving the entire
list somewhat higher than on Saturday. The
buying still continues .from tbe commission
houses, and the steady absorption of stocks is
sufficient to check any and all manipulation for
a depression. There was some reaction at
different times to-day, and the selling of Lon
don with the suspected selling by Chicago at
one time gave promise of making a material
set-back to the advance, but tbe demand was
so strong that the impression made upon the
list was for slight fractions only.
The Union Pacific report was a bear argu
ment but tbe reports sent out from Chicago
were all very buoyant In tone, and the effect of
the report was but slight A feature of the
day's operations was the extraordinary strength
shown by several of the specialties and low-
Ericed shares, of which Chcsapeako and Ohio,
ake Erie and Western preferred and the
Trust stocks were most prominent for the ad
vances maae. Almost an tne important gains
of the day are in this class of stocks, but the
general list shows but a few declines, and they
are entirely insignificant The market opened
thisnurrning .with first prices from to M per
cent above Saturday's closing figures, and in
the early dealings further fractional advances
(were made over the opening figures.
The specialties early came to the front while
in the active list Louisville and Nashville and
Missouri Pacific were specially prominent for
strength. A slight set-back was experienced
toward 11 o'clock, and this was the case after
every upward movement throughout the day
but the impression made at any one time was
inconsiderable. The prominent stocks wero
.one after another taken in hand and advanced
which, with frequent reactions, gave the list a
somewhat feverish and lrregnlar appearance,
but the market finally closed active and strong
generally at about the best price of tbe day.
The Important gains for the day comprise

Riotous Italian Minors Are Conning Trouble
at Brnldwood, III. Armed Mobs Are
Destroying Property and Forcing
the Men to Quit Work.
Bkaidwood, III., May 27. In response
to an appeal by the Sheriff of Will county
for armed reinforcements, Governor Fifer
has authorized the Illinois National Guard
to protect property and persons endangered
by the riot at Braidwood. Adjutant Gen
eral Vance ordered a regiment of men to
the Sheriff's aid. About 500 strikers from
adjoining mining villages, armed with guns
and revolvers, marched in a body to the J
shaft in this city at 3 o'clock this afternoon.
About 15 employes who were present were
marched at the end of the strikers' guns to
a safe distance north of the shaft, and the
turbulent mob then proceeded to fill the
shaft up with pit cars and debris and wreck
Alter a half hour of this work they left,
saying they would be back shortly and
burn the shaft Serious times are expected.
Company B, of Joliet, belonging to the
Fourth Regiment, Illinois National Guard,
have been ordered to Braidwood to disperse
the striking miners. A report just received
states that 400 strikers from Clark City and
nearly 1000 from Valley Creek are march
ing toward the Braidwood mines, armed
with clubs, revolvers, army muskets and
shotguns, and that many of the Italian
strikers are crazy with liquor and are deter
mined to stop the men who went to work in
tbe mines this forenoon.
Serious trouble is anticipated when Col
onel Bennett, commanding the Fourth
Kegiment, meets with the angry strikers.
