ik office of Pittsbukg Dispatch, T
L, Wednesday, May 29 1888. f
- Receipts of cattle on Monday were 67
cars against 72 the previous Monday. Some
E or 6 loads hare been received since the
beginning of the week, making a total of 73
cars, which is 8 cars below the snpplyjof last
Quality was scarcely no to the average.
There were 52 loads from Chicaco, and a few
of these were prime stock, bat the bulk was
below standard grade. There were fever
heavy weights than last week. Drovers have
evidently caught on to the fact that this bas
become a very poor market for heavy cattle.
There ha been little demand for export cattle
at Liberty yards for some weeks past. Bayers
from Eastern Pennsylvania were .scarce this
week. The demand was mostly local.
The best demand was for smooth, llcht
batcher stock weighing 1.000 to 1,200 pounds. A
few loads of good beeves, weighing from 1.S0O
to 1,400 pounds, were sold at $1 351 4a One
bunch of still heavier Bold at 4 SO. Calves
were firm and higher, with Si 85g5 00 as the
range. Some extra fine brought J5 23.
Notwithstanding reduced supplies of cattle,
markets were slow on most grades. Desirable
batcher stock held its own, and was probably a
shade firmer than last week. About everything
on hand was cleared up to-day. With receipts
equal to last week, prices would have been
loner. As it was. the light run was the saving
clause of markets. Prices of cattle have been
higher in Chicago this week, but no better here.
A Heir's Island drover said to-day: "I paid
more for my stock at Chicago this week than
last, bat could not persuade buyers here to give
any more, and as margins have for a long time
been very close, there is no protit in my busi
ness this week."
Sheep and Lamb.
Becelpts on Monday were S2 loads. Since
then abont 16 loads have been added to
supplies. There were 14 loads on the market to
day. Said a leading stockman: "I sold a load yes
terday at 4c A deck of very fine wethers
brought 4Vc Good vearllngs were rather
scarce, and brought 55a Spring lambs
brought 6c Choice grades of sheep and lambs
maintained the prices of last week, notwith
standing the heavy ran. As compared with
prices of the early part of the week, prices are
are 20c to 25c higher now than then.
Supply was liberal on Monday, being SI
loads, an excess of 7 loads over the previous
Monday. About 20 loads have been received
since. Markets at the beginning of tbe week
were fair, but advices from the East and West
proved a dampener to tbe trade about noon
Monday. Since then prices have been drifting
downward, and to-day are 15c below Monday's
The outside price of tops this morning was
At Chicago it was $1 50.

Wheat Open Firm but Close Weak and
Lower Contradictory Weather Re
port Corn and Oat Without
Material Chance Hoc
Chicago After a firm opentng and slight
advance the wheat market rnled easier to-day,
prices declining jjje, and closed Giio 'ower
than yesterday. A fair business was trans
acted, but trading was spasmodic. The firm
opening and Jfc advance was attributed to cold
wet weather and better tone of Liverpool ad
vices. Closing cables were all strong, but later the
predictions were for warmer weather in the
Northwest, and this started parties who had
bought on cold weather to selling. To-morrow
being a holiday, also brought out small lots of
long wheat, parties not caring to hold till
Friday. Some little export business was re
ported at the seaboard, and there was also
some business doing in cash wheat there.
A quiet, easy feeling prevailed in corn.
Transactions were only of moderate volume
and fluctuations limited to Uc range. Nothing
new of consequence was developed that had
any apparent effect on values, and the market
was governed entirely by local influences.
Oats were traded in liberally, and early a
stronger feeling prevailed. Opening sales were
at Hejic advance. The marketheld steady for
a time, in sympathv with tbe strength in corn,
but after the few buyers had been filled up, of
ferings increased. A weaker feeling developed
and prices receded JfSXe, the close being quiet
at abont inside prices.
In mess pork buying was rather HghCand tbe
market rather firm. Prices ruled 7K10c high
er, and the market closed quiet at medium fig
ures. A quiet and steady feeling prevailed in the
lard market. Prices were a little more favor
able to sellers, but the Change was slight.
Only a moderate trade was reported in the
market for short ribs. Prices declined 25c
early, but rallied again, and the market closed
steady at outside figures.

PEACEABLE PARADES ABE LEGAL.
The Police Have no Authority to Prohibit
Chicago, May 29. A number of de
cisions were handed down in the Appellate
Court to-day. A question of political, re
ligious and social liberty is discussed by
Justice Moran in a decision wherein he
holds that the city of Chicago has no
right to repress orderly parades in
the street. John Trotter, a Salvation
Army Captain, was arrested and
fined in the Criminal Court for parading on
the streets, the prosecution being under an
ordinance prohibiting parades, except on
?ermit of the Superintendent of Police,
rotter appealed from the fine, and Justice
Moran makes the important ruling that a
permit from the police chief is not neces
sary where people parade in a quiet and
orderly manner. '
Justice Gary, doubtless having in mind
the Anarchist riots, dissents, and holds that
it comes properly within police powers to
prohibit parades. The suit of Edward A.
Stevens to restrain the Board of County
Commissioners from making, a contract with
St, Mary's Training School for Boys, on the
ground that it is a sectarian institution and
the payment of money to such institutions is
contrary to the Constitution, was dismissed
the Appellate Court holding that ir had no
jurisdiction. Such cases, involving the
construction of a section of the Constitution,
are. it bolds,appealable only to the Supreme

Several of the Outlying Districts Re

Rapid Transit Assured.
TEHPERAMCETILLB AKD THE MOUKI
The sale of 26 lots on Mount "Washington
in one day shows conclusively that there is
an unusual movement in that direction. It
is a beautiful place, with good air and
water; It possesses all the requisites for com
fortable living, has commanding views of
the city and a large area of the adjacent
country, and Is convenient of access at all
times of the day or night. It is destined to be
come one of the most populous districts on the
Several ot the outlying districts which have
been mentioned in The Dispatch within a
weekortwoare continuing to attract the at
tention of real estate buyers. Among them
are Oakland and Squirrel HUL The comple
tion of tbe loop ot the Fifth avenue cable cars
is all that is needed to place the former in the
front rank for residence purposes. It possesses
everything else to make it desirable. Squirrel
HU1 will soon have two electric roads, which
will place it in close communication wi th tbe
heart of the city. Naturally it is one of the
most picturesque spots in the county. Both of,
these districts are already prime favorites in
the real estate market, bat rapid transit, now
an assured thing, will give them a boost that
will place them in a still more commanding po
sition. The old rumor of the proposed sale of the
postofflce property was revived yesterday, It
may be well to repeat that this property can
not be sold without an act of Congress, which
may not be obtained for years. Indeed, from
the dilatory vay in which the new building is
going up, the old one will be needed for the
purpose for which It Is now used for a long time
to come. When sold, if ever, it will be adver
tised, So that ail will have an equal chance to
buy it. No one will have theinside track in the
Business is business. The proprietor of a
grocery house in the East End, wno formerly
did business in Butler, told this story yester
day: ."When in Sutler I did a large produce
trade with the farmers. One-day one of them,
whom I knew very well, came in with a large
roll of fine-looking butter, weighing some eigbt
or ten pounds. I took it and paid him for It.
The price was SO cents a pound. When I went
to cut it the knife .encountered a hard sub
stance which could not be penetrated. 1 tore
open the lump and found embedded in it a beef
bone that weighed a pound and a half. I was
surprised, but said nothing. When the farmer
came again I said to him: 'Mr. , you owe
me 45 cents on that butter.' His guilty look
showed that he knew what I meant. He band
ed me over the change and walked oat I have
not seen him since."
The finding water at West End place seems
to have been all that was needed to give a god
send off. It removed the only objection that
had been urged against the locality. Four lots
were sold there yesterday and several others
bargained for. TemperancevUle may now Da
said to be In the swim.
. "Selling real estate at auction Is- the best
plan I have ever tried," remarked a real estate
agent yesterday. "In the ordinary way buyers
are very slow to act They seem to thmk that
by waiting they can get better terms, but when
they meet face to face at an auction they know
they must art promptly or the other fellows
will get ahead of them. Auction sales also
excite competition, and in most cases better
prices are realized. "We sell both privately
and by auction, bat I prefer the latter method.
There is fun as well as profit in it"
HOW THEI STAND.
Strong and Weak Features of.the Local
"We are not quite ready to come together,"
remarked a stock broker yesterday evening
after the call. This was a sufficient explana
tion of the dullness of the market There are
plenty of orders, but tbey are not urgent and
both sides hope Dy holding off a little longer to
do better for their principals. There were
some outside sales, among them 500 shares of
Pittsburg and Manchester BaUway, sold by
Henry M. Long for 1200, Last November this
stock went at S104. This almost phenomenal
advance in so short a time is due entirely to
the improved condition of the road assuring
There was only one sale at the morning call,
that of 100 shares of Chartiers Gas at 50, the
same price that it brought the day before. The
afternoon sales amounted to 125 shares, mak
ing a total of 225 for tbe day. Philadelphia
Gas was wanted at 8 but held higher. As
there was no pressure to sell it nothing was
done. A holder of the stock said; "I am not
going to give it away. It hasn't seen its best
days yet" rue rest ot the gassers maintained
an easy and quiet attitude.
Central Traction was stronger, selling at S2K
to 32. assessment paid. The others were
fractionally weaker. Electric was still under
a legal disability, 54 being bid and 65 asked in
tbe afternoon. It was offered very sparingly.
It is pretty safe to say that this stock will keen.
Snitch and Signal was weaker and neglected.
La Nona showed no change. News from the
mine was said to be unfavorable. Silverton
wasn't wanted at any price, bnt $1 was asked
for it The rest of the list was too dull to
merit notice. Bids, offers and sales follow:

A BANKER TALES.
Idle Fnnds Not So Abundant as Some People
There was a fair demand for money at the
leading banks yesterday. Tbe cashier of one of
them said: "We are doing a very satisfactory
business for the season.. The loan market is
decidedly more active than at the same time
last year. We are pretty well loaned up, but
Borne of our neighbors liavo not been so fortu
nate. There is an abundance of money for all
legitimate purposes, but it is not in excessive
supply." Kates were unchanged and steady.

More Noise Than Bntlneaa on 'Change A
There was considerable strength in the oil
market when it opened yesterday, but the bulls
soon lost their grip and a downward movement
set in, which continued, with slight interrup
tions, till the close. Oil City was a buyer and
New York a seller. Here the trading was mod
erate and entirely professional, outsiders care
folly keeping their fingers out of the pie.
There were no new features.
Tbe market opened at 84c, but it soon sold
off to 83K& From this point it rallied a little,
and held aronnd 83c until tbe afternoon,
when it firmed np and sold at 84c,but failed to
develop staying qualities and declined to S3K&
In the last few mlnntes It was bid op to 83mc,
at which it closed, with both sides carefully
guarding their points.
A broker said: "If the powers that be were
willing we would soon be in shape for another
advance. On the other hand, there is appar
ently no combination of dealers to aid in
patting prices up. This has always aided in
our advances, and its apparent absence is
significant ot a weak spot somewhere. So long
as tbe trading is professional, as now, there can
be no material change."

Reported Rale Catting and News of Frost
and Damage to the Crop Utilized by
the Bears Everything Closes
New Yobk, May 29. The heavy advance In
tbe stock markctmet with a check to-day, and
while the business done was materially smaller
than that of the past few days, the list at the
close was Invariably lower and the losses in
some of the late favorites were quite marked.
The recent rumors that Mr. Armonrhad closed
out his deal in St Paul and the heavy realiza
tions during the past few days were
supplemented by a change in the
tenor of tbe dispatches from Chicago, and rate
cutting was once more the burden of the news
with frost and damage to the crops to fill out
with. In addition to these influences, to-morrow
being a holiday, there was plenty of closing
out of outstanding accounts, and many brokers
intending to leave the city" until Monday,
tbe sales for the long acconnt aggregated a
respectable amount There were selling orders
for other outside centers, however, and London
contributed to tbe depression, though Boston
was still bullish and bought some ot its favor
ites. Tbe Chicago specialties, however, were the
leaders in the decline and furnish almost all
the important losses sustained lor tbe day,
while the Vanderbilts were the firmest group,
and a spurt in Western Union during the morn
ing hours enabled that stock to score the only
advance among the active shares. The failure
ot the directors of the Cotton Oil Trust to come
to any conclusion in the matter of a dividend
depressed that stock to-day, and the other
trust shares were weak in sympathy. A few of
the lighter shares were especially strong, and
Chicago and Atlantic and East Tennessee were
verv noticeable. Tbe movements in the ma
jority of tbe general list however, were con
fined to the smallest limits and the fluctuations
seemed possessed of little or no significance,
but the general weak tone of the market car
ried them down.
The market opened with a much smaller vol
ume of business, and the first sales were made
at small declines from the closing figures of
last evening, and Cotton Oil dropped 1 per
-cent followed by the stocks in the regular list
with fractional amounts. Western Union
showed marked strength toward noon, but it
had no stimulating effect upon the rest and
Canada Southern followed with the same re
sult Tbe market became more quiet in the
afternoon, but toward 2 P. M. tbe downward
movement gathered more force and the lowest
? rices weregenerally reached about that time,
here was a slight rally in the last hour, and
tbe market finally closed heavy to weak at
about the lowest prices of tbe day. In the un
listed department tbe Trust stocks were still
leaders, although somewhat less active than
usual of late, and among the second division
Brunswick was a leader as usual, and closed
rather higher after selling at 24. Everything
is lower. Rock'IsIand lost Atchison. Mis

Dr. Woods has bad a large practice la'
this branch of his profession without any
Sublic advertising, but as many who might
ave been useful and ornate members of
society, fill untimely graves, whom he might
have cured by seasonable treatment and
given them "length of davs," he has Ion;
felt it a duty he owes to the afflicted to step '
aside from the restrictions of so-called med
ical etiquette and announce- to the public
that he gives special attention to a much '
neglected class of diseases.
Many years ago Dr. "Woods went through,
the prescribed course of medical studr
with hisr fellow students, received his '
diploma and took an equal stand in the
profession with the best of his medical
brethren; yet he is fully convinced from
lengthened observation, that being a grad-
nate merely gives one no assurance or
guarantee of a physician's skill. TTi sub
sequent success in practice is the proper
gauge by which to judge of his merits. Oa
this severe and critical test Dr. "Woods haa -stood
and the elevated position he occupies -"
in the medical profession makes it clear that "
his success has been unusual. Profession-
ally Dr. "Woods relies on his own powers and
resources, snd has achieved a remarkable
degree of perfection in diagnosis, which: en
ables him, at a glance, to' comprehend the "
complications of obscure, new and anoma
lous types of disease. He has given years t
of devoted study to his practice and enected'
such marvelous cures that the greatest as
tonishment has been caused throughout tho
country. His services, therefore, are not to
be measured by money; and those who are
afflicted are'false to themselves not to avail
themselves to the full of his wonderfully
successful modern method of treatment;
Dr. "Woods' treatment being mild and
safe, his patients arfe in no case subjected to
painful or unpleasant operations, and in the
majority of instances they ca pursue the
course of treatment directed at their homes
and without interruption to their usual voca
tions. "When possible the doctor prefers to
see his patients; but when this is impossible'
his successful system of treatment by corre-'
spondence enables the afflicted in all parts
of the world to avail themselves of the bene
fit of his skill at a very small cost Send 4
cents in stamps for question list. All com-'
munications sacredly confidential. No
charge for advice. Examinations are also
free to those who desire treatment.
