Unusual Activity in Lines of General
A BOOM IN 1YIRE FENCE AND NAILS
Increasing Demand for Siding Saddles and
WHEAT AKD FLOOR DRIFTING D0W2f
OrncK or Pittsburg Dispatch, 1
Tuesday, May 2S, 1SS9. J
April and October are usually the best
x months for hardware dealers. "April, 1S89,"
- said one of oar leading merchants in this
line, "showed a larger volume of trade with
ns tban April, 1SS8. and May so far shows no
decline. We have sold more goods thus far in
16S9tbanwe did for the corresponding period
of last year, but margins have been so close
that our profits have not increased with in
creased volume of trade."
There has been unusual activity the past
month or two in such lines of hardware as wire
nails, barbed and plain wire fen cms, fly screens
and refrigerators. The patent picket fence
made of No. 12 wire, for which farmers are re
quired to pay a handsome bonus to the pat
entee, has a great run this season throughout
The wire nail is about the onlv thine in the
sail line that has been yielding any profit to
manufacturers of nails the past year or two. It
would be bard to find any more unprofitable
stock than that invested m nail mills.
Pittsburg cut nail mills have been
for a year or two practically idle,
and those of Wheeling, Bellaira and Iron
ion might as well have been idle lor all the
pood they are doing for stockholders. It is
doubtful if any nail mill of the Ohio valley can
lie run without loss to the owners. Mills which
paid stockholders regularly lQto 20 per cent a
decade or two ago, are now running at a loss.
Xhere is notblng in the nail line remunerative
to the manufacturer at this date outside of the
Hardware dealers report a very active de
mand for fly screens and refrigerators the put
week or two, and present indications are that
this season will keep np the record as to vol
ume in general hardware lines, so far as this
city is concerned.
Trade In this line is at its best. In the early
months of the year prospects looked rather
blue. As spring opened trade at once improved,
and the months of April and Hay have been
the best in the history of the trade so far as
volume is concerned. The slack time in the
carnage hardware industry is usually from the
middle of Juno to the middle of August.
There are no signs of slackening up as yet.
There is a growing demand lor riding saddles
and road carts. The rage for horseback riding
-which came from .England to the Eastern
States of America several years ago, is grad
ually traveling Westward. That it has reached
Pittsburg is very evident from the growing de
mand for riding saddles, a demand which is
greater this spring than ever before.
A leading dealer in carnage hardware said
to-day, Onr business has been fully 10 per
cent better this 5 ear than last at this time.
This notwithstanding the fact that the closing
up of so many saloons has materially dimin
ished cur trade in certain lines. A single
order for f90O worth of our goods was can
celled by a large dealer in brewers' supplies,
because of the knocking out of so many
"" saloons. We have sold more goods than last
year, but would have done much better it the
License Court had been more liberal in grant
Whent and Floor.
The current number of the Minneapolis
Miller finds notblng hopeful in the situation.
2Cew crop prospects keep improving and old
stock, which is large, grows heavier every day.
The output of Minneapolis mills last week was
The heaviest since last November, being 18,950
carrels daily, or a total of 113,7011 for the week.
'Export demand has been checked.
Reports from England, France, Germany,
Holland, Belgium and Hungary show an im
provement in prospect for the incoming crop
of wheat. This, with the timely rams and im
proved prospects of the Northwest crop, has a
depressing influence on wheat and flour.
All signs point at present to a low er level of
prices for breadstuffs. One of our leading
flour jobbers said to-day: "1 cannot see how
flour can fail to drop in a few days to a lower
leveL The pressure is very strong on tho part
of Northwestern mills to sell th.r stuff."

Chicago, May 23,-The wheat market pre
sented a little more life and animation to-day,
and the volume of trading was larger tban yes
terday. At times, however, trade dragged
slowly. The feeling was a little unsettled,
opening up firm for July, and sold off imme
diately Mc, then gained strength and gradu
ally advanced c, became easier, selling off
JSc, rallied and closed Jc higher than yes
terday. May sold down and ranged about the
same as June, and both these futures were
weak. It was easy to obtain cash wheat, quite
a lot, having been held in expectation of a
corner in May, having come on the market
yesterday and to-day.
August, September and December showed
some strength, and closed ?c fligher than
yesterday. The reason given tor the apparent
strength in these deferred futures is that mar
ket values are now about on a legitimate basis,
and operators, taking into consideration the
low prices, aro more disposed to cover, influ
enced some by the colder weather in the North
west. A fair business was transacted in com, and
the feeling developed was somewhat firmer,
transactions being at slightly higher prices.
The market opened at yesterday's closing
prices, was firm and advanced Kc, ruled
steady and closed Ko to c higher than
Oats were traded in moderately. A stronger
feeling developed and prices advanced Msc.
The strength was dne to fair purchases by a

WHAT TWO MEN HATE LIYED TO BEE
An important strike was made at
"West End Place, back of Temperanceville,
yesterday. Hitherto scarcity of water has
been a drawback to that otherwise favored
locality. This prevented sales and greatly
retarded the growth of the place. Bat this
cause of complaint seems to have been over
come and a bountiful supply of the Prohibi
tion fluid assured. Sometime ago one of
the lot owners began drilling a well on the
top of the hill. At a depth of 90 feet a
stream of pure, cold, sparkling water was
struck, which gives every evidence of hold
ing out. It is Jast on top of an exhausted coal
pit, that has not been worked for 23 years. This
strike will no doubt increase the demand for
lots in West End Place.
Wood street, from Fifth avenue to the river,
has undergone almost a complete transforma
tion since a decade or less before the war. An
old citizen who has a vivid recollection of its
ancient appearance said yesterday: "Wood
street of to-day is one of our finest thorough
fares. But it was not always so. I remember
distinctly when it was lined on both sides by
shanties, there being very few good houses
among them. But it was a hive of industry,
even more than now. What was the principal
business do you suppose! Tailoring: Almost
every honse on the street was a tailor shop.
That was before the era of -cheap clothing, and
the demand was immense. Steamboating was
then at its height here, and the people thus em
ployed were the principal customers. Fashion
was litt'e regarded by these rough and
hardy men, comfort and individ
ual taste being the1 sole, guides
for the tailor. The consequence was an assort
ment of styles that gave a picturesque, if not
elegant, appearance to the wearers. There was
big money in the business then. Suits brought
340 or So0 that would now be thought dear attlO
or SIS. Sometimes a customer wonld leave the
tailor in the lurch by not taking his clothes or
refusing to pay for them, and then there was
trouble. One of these difficulties led to a mur
der, the particulars of which I forget. When
the steamboat business fell away these tailors,
or nearly all or them, quit the business, which
was no longer profitable, and engaged in other
pursuits. The descendants of a part of them
still ply the needle or are the proprietors of
The large mortgage business in Pittsburg is
conducted almost entirely with home money.
Early in the season a few Eastern capitalists
sought to invade the field, but they soon
found out they were not wanted, and with
drew. Pennsylvania laws, while protecting the
borrower as well as the lender, is highly favor
ably to this branch of business. On this point
a broker said yesterday: "One reason why so
many mortgages are placed in this State and
in this locality, is that they can be closed up
without any unnecessary delay or expense.
While the borrower is given ample time to
meet his obligation, the rights of the lender are
carefully guarded. This encourages capitalists
to invest their money in this form of security,
and is good for all concerned. I am glad to say
that very few foreclosures occur. If the laws
in Ohio were as liberal in this respect as ours,
that would be one of the best States in the
Union for the money lenders. But mortgages
are so hedged about with red tape that it re
quires years to close them up. The borrower
has all the advantage there, and the conse
quence is that comparatively few mortgages
are placed. I have had, many applications to
lend money on Ohio realty, but haye always
refused f or the reason stated."
An old gentleman who did business In aneigh
boring town made a casual remark about 40
years ago that was the other day brought viv
idly to his memory by one of his friends.
What he said was: "Dave, I would like to visit
this world 100 years hence, jnst to "see what im
provements have been made." Hoth of these
men have lived to see the railroad, the tele'
graph, the telephone, the electric light, the
electric street car, the phonograph, and graph
ophone, and probably 10,000 oiher inventions in
successful operation that save labor and con
tribute to the pleasure and comfort of man
kind, since the remarkabovequoted was made.
Meeting by chance they talked over these mat
ters. Both were impressed with the immensity
of the -possibilities in store for an energetic
and intelligent people, and were ten times
more anxious to revisit the earth 100 years
hence than they were 40 years ago one of
them adding: "Bnt I would know no one, and
would not even know the tools used in my

local banks yesterday in the way of discount

tomers, so far as known, at rates varying from
5 to 6 per cent, according sb the collateral.
Checking and depositing were lighter than
usual, but still of fair proportions. To-morrow
will be a legal holiday, and the banks win be
closed. Those having paper to meet then
should attend to it to-day. The Clearing House

with the previous day. but was encouraging for
the season. The exchanges were 1,946,268 33,

The oil market opened better yesterday
than the close of Monday, but it was dull and
featureless throughout, very little of the com
modity changing hands. The first price was
84. from which there was a gradual slump to
K followed by a reco ery in the afternoon to
S4 In the last hour the market slowly weak
ened and closed at 84, with carrying 23 cents
to flaVand no Indications of a radical change
A broker aired his views thus: "1 look for the
market to hang around present figures, or per
haps a little higher, until July 1, or shortly
after. In my opinion the Standard guarantee
to the producers of 90 is reason enough for
this. It is trne that a comparatively small
amount of oil is Involved, but every little helps
to make or break the market. This influence
out of the way, I look for a break early in July,
unless, in the meantime, a strong contingent of
outsiders should come in, which I do not ex
pect." Fen tares ot the Market.

SOME BIG GAINS.
A Few Specialties' Hold Up the Stock Mar-
ket Declines in the Majority A
Strong Close, nt About the
Nrw Yoke, May 28. The stock market was
somewhat less active to-day and there was not
so strong a tone as during the previous few
days. The result of the day's business is that,
while some stocks show material and even phe
nomenal gains, there are more declines than
usual of late. The buying still continues from
out of town sources and the local commission
houses are still well supplied with orders, but
the professional element and the traders from
day to day were inclined more and more to
work for a reaction of material extent. To-day
there was also a more general realizing move
ment than has been seen for some time past
and the strength of the few specialties was all
that carried the market through. The buying
for Chicago account, however, seems to be" un
diminished and the favorites of that center
were still the leaders in the upward movement
and the statement of St. Paul met with as
much commendation as that of Reading did
with disapproval. The latter, however, did not
have any effect upon either the price of Read
ing or its kindred shares.
London was somewhat lower this morning
and was a seller to some extent in this market
during the day, bnt also bought some Union
Pacific Louisville, St. Paul and Northern Pa
cific The trust stocks maintained their promi
nent position in the market, and though Chi
cago Gas stock did not advance much it dis
played a strong tone, and the others were de
cidedly buoyant. Tho Vanderbilts again be
came active in the last hour, and Lake Shore
especially attracted marked attention by its
sham uoward movement. Amon?thAfitipM4i.
ties the great feature was the sudden rise in
the San Francisco stocks, and the common
shot up 5 per cent, followed by the preferred
with a smaller gain. Others which were par
ticularly strong were the Lake Erie and West
ern shares and the East Tennessee stonlr hnr
the Chesapeake and Ohio stocks went back a
The opening was made on a large volume of
business, bnt first prices were affected by
the lower London figures and declines were
?uite as numerous as advances. The demand
or stocks, however, soon started an upward
movement, which continued until toward 11
o'clock, when the efforts of the. traders and
professionals brought about a somewhat lower
range of values and some of tho weaker stocks
were brougbttdown below the opening prices.
The depression was of. short duration, how
ever, and in the afternoon there was a renewal
of the buying for the long account, and prices
once more moved upward, though except in
the few specialties the gains were for small
fractions only. Toward delivery hour
there was a shading off also, but
at the close the market was active and
generally at close to the best figures of the day
