advance they were compelled to pay at Chi

Losses of Pork Packers.
Pork sackers have not found a bonanza in
their industry this season. A gentleman from
Cincfhnati, who has been long engaged in curing
meats, was in the city a day or two ago, and re
ported that packers there were generally losing
money. Said he: 1 have put np about 800,000
pounds of stuff, at a cost of 00,000, and if I
were to close out at present prices of provisions
my loss would be not less than 516,000'
One of our provision dealers here made pur
chase from the Cincinnati house ot an amount
of stuff on which there was a loss to the seller
of.S900- Pork packers are nnanimous in the
belief that margins are about wiped out.
The truth is hogs ha e ruled too high all the
past season.
Though the tendency has been downward for
some weeks, prices are still too high for any
profit In packing.

Dishonored Drafts.
When the stonfach dishonors the drafts made
upon It by tbe rest of the sjstem.it is neces
sarily because Its fond of strength is very low.
Toned with Hostetters Stomach Bitters, It
soon begins to pay out vigor in the shape of
pure, rich blood, containing tbe elements of
muEcie none and brain. As a sequence of the I
vigor afforded the .stomacn, tbe bowels
perform their functions regularly, and the
Uver works like clockwork: Malaria has no
esect upon a system thus reinforced.
Wheat Moves at a Silent Decline In Prices
Corn Stronger Oau Unchanged
Hag Products Close With the
Early Advance Lost.
Chicago Trade Jn wheat was very
light to-day and mostly local. Prices declined
to a point c lower than Saturday's closing.
The opening was &Jc lower, and with only
slight changes receded e more, ruled steadier.
Improving 3c closing about H6Jic lower than
Saturday. Crop reports continue favorable,
with exception of points In Indiana, Illinois
and Tennessee.
Com ruled rather quiet but comparatively
firm, and prices fluctuated within He range,
closing a shade higher than on Saturday.
Oats were quiet and steady, with small
changes in price.
Trading was only moderately active in hog
products. Under the influence of liberal re
ceipts of hogs and a further decline in prices
there was an inclination arly to sell for future
delivery, and prices ruled lower. At tbe de
cline the demand slightly improved and prices
rallied, but toward the close the market weak
ened and the advance was lost.

Business OTershadowed by Jhe Great
Disaster at Johnstown.
Presented Prom the Standpoint of a1 Gen
tleman of Large Experience.
"The angels of our better nature" have
been so deeply touched by the Johnstown
catastrophe as to canse business to be in
great part subordinated to the more urgent
necessity for the caring of the survivors and
burying the dead. Nobody seemed to have
any heart for business yesterday. Scarcely
a dozen brokers attended either of the stock
calls, and all of Captain Barbour's efforts
failed to excite sufficient enthusiasm to
effect a single sale. The same was true of
the stock market, which was strong but
dull. The banks did nothing but routine work,
and not much of that. Everywhere, on the
streets, in the stores and offices, wherever
people assembled, the only topic of conversa
tion was the disaster. Almost every man had
his hand on his pocketbook ready to respond to
a call for further assistance. It will be several
days beforebusinessesumes its .wonted course.
To the Financial editor of Tbe Dispatch:
Having read several articles in The Dis
patch lately on auction sales of real estate, it
occurs to me that probably a few lines from one
wbose experience in that business extends over
30 years in this county may be of interest. I
remember when owners of real estate hesitated
about offering their property at auction for
fear that the public would think that they
were acting nnder financial distress, or that
they were compelled to sell. Gradually that
feeling gave way and auction became a popular
method of offering property. This popularity
continued until a few years ago, when it came
into disfavor, from which it has not recovered.
One reason for this decline was the introduc
tion of fictitious bidders. So long as bidders
had confidence In tbe honest management of
the sale tbey would bid freely, and nnder the
spur of competition would give more than they
had really intended to give. But whenever the
suspicion of false bidding arose bidders would
decline to give even the sum that they had in
tended to bid.
Another reason was that, after attending
sales and bidding what was deemed the value
of the property, owners wonld withdraw the
property and hold it for a higher price. Bid
ders thus lost both time and temper in attend
in; sales. Then came the era of brass bands,
free lunch and often free beer to stimulate the
bidding. Auctioneers used to pay $500 a year
license and give heavy bonds for the faithful
discharge of duty. Ten years ago these were
entirely repealed. This developed an extraor
dinary increase in the number of auc
tioneers. Now auction ought to be a popular method
for the sale of real estate. How to regain the
old-time popularity is the question. As already
said, confidence in the conduct of the sale is
an essential requisite. One idea I wish to pre
sent: It is well known that, with few excep
tions, there is a limited price at which owners
will allow the property to be sold. Then why
not publish the limited price? If itjisalow
price or a fair price, buyers will be attracted
to attend the sale, and. under the stimulus ot
legitimate competition, may be induced
to bid over the limit Those who deem
the price too high will sot attend,
and will not thus be disappointed.
When it is found that tbe limited price is too
high, let tho sale be readvertised with price re
duced. Let it be understood that the property
will be positively sold if the limited price is of
fered. This plan may rob the auctioneer of his
opportunity to create enthusiasm among his
audience in order to reach the limit, but will
afford him a higher order of skill to persuade
them to exceed the limit, which is of far more
consequence. Bidders will then attend sales
with a definite knowledge of the owners' views;
distrust will be abolished, and much more sat
isfactory results will be obtained. Many per
sons have failed to attend auction sales from
lack! of knowledge of the acceptable price,
whereas had tbey known it, they would have
attended andbidden higher. There is no good
reason why an auction sale should not be con
ducted as openly and above board as a private
sale. Alexander Legoate.
While there is nothing new on the surface
relating to the widening of Diamond street,
there is a strong undercurrent of sentiment in
its favor. One of the most earnest and zealous
advocates of the improvement is a Fourth
avenue real estate dealer, who has the courage
of his convictions in expressing his sentiments.
He said yesterday: "I know that Diamond
street will be widened. I won't tell you how I
know It, but I give yon the fact, and you can
rely on it. 1 have watched this matter care
fully from tbe start, and have made up my
mind from pointers obtained from the inside.
While the opponents of the project have been
talking, tbe other side has been acting. They
have been buying property there right along
until now they are practically in control of
the street. Nor have they confined their
operations to the thoroughfare in question, but
have gone into the adjacent streets and worked
up a strong sentiment In favor of the improve
ment If tbe determination of the question
were left to a vote of the people directly inter
ested, the wideners wonld carry the day by a
decided majority. We are in no particular
nurry. xne more the subject Is debated the
better it will be for us. No man In his proper
senses can fail to perceivo that the widening of
the street would be In the interest of the pub
lic Afcwmenmay make money out ot It. but
that would be a trifle in comparison with tho
benefits which would be necessarily follow
from the opening of a new street in the heart
of the city. Another thing 1 can tell you. The
street will never be obstructed with car tracks.
In view of the almost universal sentiment
against it, Councils would not dare to author
ize such an invasion of public rights."
Nothing Done at Elttierof Yesterday's Stock
Culls Bids nnd Offers.
There were no transactions in local stocks at
either of the calls yesterday. Thero were sev
eral reasons for this. The brokers were ab
sorbed in the Johnstown disaster, many of
them having relatives or friends among the
victims. Under this weight they were not dis
posed to pay much attention to everyday busi
ness affairs. Then, again, there were very few
orders demanding instant execution, and
finally, bids and offers were too far apart to be
hastily bridged over.
All of tho favorites were strong and some of
them higher in the bidding. For Electric 632
was bid and 65 asked. It was fractionally
weaker ln the afternoon. Philadelphia Gas
could have been sold at 3 but it was held at
33. Central Traction was held at 33K ; Citizens'
was offered at 07 For Pittsburg 61 was bid
and 63 asked. Switch and Signal was strong at
Saturday's quotation. Pleasant Valley Pas
senger Railway was in request at $180, but $200
was wanted in tbe forenoon and $193 In the aft
ernoon. People's Natural Gas and Plpeage
was in the market at 17M, but the opportunity
was allowed to pass unimproved. Bids and

There was very little doing in the local money
market yesterday. The demand for loans was
light and routine business, below the average.
A large part of tho checking was made up of
contributions for the Johnstown sufferers. The

Henry Clews 4 Co., New York, say in their
weekly circular: "Our heavy gold shipments
and their bearing upon the future of the
money market have attracted considerable at
tention, especially as the movement of stocks
is largely influenced bT this consideration.
Since January 1, about $19,000,000 of gold have
been shipped from this port, the bulk of which
went In the month of May. As produce and
commercial bills are scarce and London Is not
taking our securities very freely, the prospects
are that further important amounts will follow.
The bulk of recent shipments go the continent,
and their result must be continued easy money
in .Europe ana consequent stimulating oi speu
ulationin foreign markets. At London dis
counts in tho open market are quoted at about
IK per cent: at Berlin tbey aro only a fraction
higher: while In Paris, where tbe feeling lacks
entire confidepce, the rate is about 2Xper cent
"The loans of the New York Associated
Banks are at ho highest point on record; but
this causes no concern. among bankers, for the
reason that the reserves are nnder good con
trol, and there is no prospect of any activity In
the demand for money until midsummer, when
preparations for tbe fall requirements are in
order. Better rates are, of course, anticipated
at this period, and there Is consequently less
disposition to lend on time at present low rates.
There need be no apprehension of stringency
in the money market for months to come; as
the Treasury is in a position to release funds
more freely when necessary, ana the gold now
going out is likely to return In the latter half
of the year."

The Pennsylvania Disaster Has a Depress
ins Effect Upon (he Stock Market A
Reaction and Losses Recovered
Railroad Bonds Quiet.
New York, June 8. The stock market to
day was more anlmated'than on Saturday, and
there was decided strength in many of, the
leading shares, and most' of the important
stocks are higher this evening. Tbe disaster
ln Pennsylvania bad a depressing effect upon
the minds of tbe traders, and coupled with that
were rumors that several banks and large loan
ing institutions intended to call in
loans on stocks unless there .could be a ticker
service. This opened the market materially
lower, with Louisville and Nashville down 1
per cent; but the others from ys to percent
generally. Tbe traders were bearishly inclined,
and by well directed attacks upon tbe list
helped prices clown still further in tbe, first
half hour, tbe Grangers being specially promi
nent Burlington took the lead in the decline,
but was followed closely by St Paul.
The market opened weak, but the hnying
and the concessions in prices assumed larger
porportions and the bottom was quickly
reached, and the Northern Pacific stocks sud
denly sprang into activity, with a decidedly
strong tone and sharply advanced. The rum
ors accompanying the improvement were to
the effect that the expected settlement of tbe
points at Issue between that Company and tbe
union Pacific had been satisfactorily adjusted,
and it became known that President Oakes had
left for tho West The decline was therefore
soon checked entirely.
There seemed to be good baying from
western sources on the rally, and the
Grangers did not lag in the upward movement
Most of the losses were recovered, Burlington
closing at only percent decline for the day.
The only Important changes were advances of
gg in Northern Pacific, IK in Delaware and
Hudson, lJi in Jersey Central and 4 per cent in
Oregon Navigation. The market closed quiet
but Arm.
Railroad bonds were quiet and tho sales
reached only $1,231,000, with no special anima
tion or movement anywhere in the list The
tone of the trading was generally firm, but no
marked movements occurred.

Condemned by the Presbyterian Ministers
For Trying to Desecrate the Snbunth.
At tbe meeting of the Presbyterian Minis
terial Association yesterday the following res
olution was about the only matter discussed.
The resolution was adopted:
The Presbyterian Ministerial Association of
Pittsburg has heard with mingled sorrow and In
dignation of the attempt made by certain the
atrical managers In onr midst under the cloak of
charity, to essay the violation alike of the laws of
Uoa and man. by throwing open their places of
amusement for the pnrposo of giving a oeneflt"
In behalf of tbe Johnstown sufferers.
The manifest ulterior aim of these attempts be
ing to secure the removal of the prohibition cx
litlng in reference to Snnday theaters, and
thereby tho ultimate enhancement of their gains,
compel us to deplore and condemn this specions
use of the plea of charity In a way which will
wore a lasting Injury to our commnnlty and land.
A Plttshnrs Clergyman Draws a Somewhat
Striking Parallel.
Clubs like the South Fork: Fishing Club were
likened in a parable to the saloon keepers
driven out of business by prohibition in tbe
speech of the Rev. J. W. Sproull at the month
ly meeting of tbe Ministerial Alliance Associa
tion yesterday. It tbe State should deny the
privilege ot dams to the one and ot saloons to
the other, the speakor felt the prohibition in
both cases was for public safety, and no com
pensation should be given.

I am satisfied that Cancer u uereditary In n
family. My father died of it, a sister of my
mother died of it and my own sister died of it
My feelings may be imagined, then, when the
horrible disease made Its appearance on my
side. It was a malignant Cancer, eating In
wardly in such a way that it could not be cut
out Numerous remedies were used for it but
the Cancer grew steadily worse, until itseemed
that I was doomed to follow the others of the
family. I took Swift's Specific, which, from
the first day, forced out the poison and con
tinued Its use until I bad taken several bottles,
when I found myself well. 1 know that S. S. S.
cured me. Mrs. S. M. Idol.

What hundreds ofpeople say must be true,
and now Miss Mada Fritsscb wishes to tell what
has been done fur her. Her stomach had
caused her untold suffering and pain for years,
her appetite was poor, and she experienced
snch a burning and distressed feeling in her
stomacb. Although she tried to be careful of
what kinds of fond she ate, vet nothing would
remain oc her stomach, for she would vomit up
her food regularly within balf an hour after
eating. Tho catarrhal secretion that formed
inner head caused mucn pain over her eyes,
and she was almost constantly trying to raise
tbe tough; tenacious mucus that kept dropping
from her head into ber throat. Her bowels
were costive, and she was veryacrvous. She
began treatment with the physicians of the
Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute at 823 Pean
avenne on March 11, and on May IS declared
herself cured. She says: "I wish to state to
the public and my many friends that I have
been cured of this dreadful disease, dyspepsia,
and gladlv recommend these physicians to
others suffering from these diseases. I here
by sign my name.
.. "MADA FRIT8CH. Economy, Pa,"
Have you been watching tbe cures that the

Have you called to satisfy yourself that they
have enrert thesn THrrnlf vhrnn testimonials

so: investigate wnat tney are capaoie ot aoing
for others, and then call on them and they will
tell you what thoy can do for you. Do yon
know why tboy Invite sharp criticism on their
work? It is because tbey know what disease
tbey can cure and have no other way to abso
