TEADE AT L1BERTI YAEDS
Office of Pittsbuhq Dispatcit. J
Thuesdat. June 6. 1889.
lrA recent talk -with Mr. Chadwick, the
Twenty-first "Ward dairyman, ehcited some
real estate items which will no doubt be of
interest to the readers of The Dispatch.
"In the year 1803," said Mr. C, "my
grandfather came from England to this
city and purchased a tract of 169 acres
where Oakland now stands from 'Squire Wil
klns, tbe father of Judge Wllkins, one time
iliuister to Russia,
The price paid was 0 per acre.
My father, who was then a man, thinking
that the Oakland tract was not large enouch
for two families, removed to a farm In West
moreland county, where I was born. In the
year IKS father Inherited the Oakland tract
and moved his family at once to this city,
where he pursued the farmer's calling till he
finished his course.
On the Oakland hill sides I had some tonch
experiences in boyhood plowing and reaping.
In the year 1836 my father sold tbe tract then
comprising 161 acres, for 5100,000, to Charley
Taylor, the pioneer real estate operator of this
city. Mr. Taylor made a clear 35,000 in the
deal, but when the last deed was drawn It is
said he had no money left. That amount of
profit was immense in those days, equal to fire
times the same amount now.
An Abolition Enthusiast.
Charley Taylor was an enthusiast on tbe
question oi the abolition of slavery and spent
tune, money and energies in efforts to promote
Hence he died comparatively poor. The
value of the property he purchased on specula
tion at Oakland would now be estimated by
millions instead of thousands. Atwood Clark,
Asa Clulds, Fahnestoch, Eichbaum and Jones'
were among the purchasers from Taylor, end
for a time tbe Oakland suburb was known as
the Third Cburch Colony. Speaking of old
time values of East End lands, Mr. Chadwick
said he had heard his father tell how General
O'Hara was always land Door, and that he had
at one time offered his Four Mile Run tract in
the Twenty-second ward, now talked of lor
park purposes, at S3 per acre.
A moderate estimate of the value of property
owned in Pittsburg and Allegheny by General
O'Hara's granddaughter. Mrs. Schenley, places
its value above 515,000,00a Querv: Does the
heir to what was only a part of O'Hara's estate
have any musings in her splendid home on
Hyde Park, London, over the worries of her
ancestor over his poverty in Pittsburg lands
and his difficulties In satisfying the tax col
lector? Liberty Live Stock.
Owing to light local receipts of cattle stock
suitable for this market held up fairly well with
last week's prices. The kind wanted for our
home trade are light, smooth butchering stock
weighing from 1,000 to 1,200 pounds. Heavy
beeves are not wanted at liberty. Shippers
have discovered this fact and very few are
The closing up of channels of communication
has had a depressing influence on bog and
sheep markets. As the bulk of stock in both
lines changes hands here for the Eastern mar
kets, markets have been slow. Yearling sheep
and spring lambs have not been in oversupply.
Prices this week are hardly a fair criterion to
markets, as Pittsburg's experience in live stock
lines is exceptional.
Following is the reportof week's transactions

Chicago. A very fair speculative business
was transacted in wheat to-day, and the feeling
developed was weak. With the exception of
June or cash prices were lower all round, and
tbe deferred futures were the weakest. June
advanced lc above yesterday's closing, declin

July opened at about yesterday's ,close, declin
ed with slight change, and closed c lower.
Lecember opened at yesterday's closing, but
weak, with the selling turned chiefly to this fu
ture and prices declined lc and closed a lower
The weather bulletin showed rains East and
lleht rain in the Southwest and Northwest, but
clear in the South where harvesting is under
way. Confirmation of rains in Russia had a
weakening effect and was reflected in foreign
maikcts, which ruled weaker and slightly
lower. Domestic markets were easier, with
New York the weakest of all.
A moderate trade was reported in corn and
the feeling developed was a, little easier. Par
ties who have been purchasers for several days
past were sellers to-day, and in absence of any
outside support the marked declined.

ISF-ECIAI. TZLXGBAM TO THE DISrATCH.3
Monticello, N. Y., June 6 The grand
jnry of this county has just found a bill of in
dictment against Alfred Oilman for misde
meanor In selling oleomargarine as butter. He
is the principal heir and administrator of the
$1,000,000 estate of his father, the late W. W.
rGilman, leather dealer, at 10 Ferry street, New
York. Among tbe possessions of the estate is
a large tanning and lumber -property and
country store attached, at Oilman's station,
this county, on tbe Port Jems and Montlcello
Railroad. It is charged that tbe oleomarga
rine in qnestton came Itfm the factory of N. J.
Nathan, New Haven, Conru, in March last, and
that it was shipped on the sly. In unlabeled
gunny1 bags, to the Oilman store, where it was
sold to customers as genuine nutter.
The prosecution was instituted by the New
Yirk State Dairy Commission, one of whose
detectives, it is said, shadowed the shipment
from New Haven to Oilman's. The principal
witnesses before the grand jury were J. R.
Wneeler. of Norwich, inspector, and J. F.
Uiesler, of New York, analyst of the Dairy
Commission, who identified thealleged butter
as oleomargarine, pure and simple. Young
Oilman has given bonds to appear at the next
term of court for trial. The penalty fpr the
misdemeanor is a fine or imprisonment,or both,
and in addition a fixed penalty of S500, recover
able by civil suit.

The posse beat tbe woods all last night, be
fore they caught signt of the pnrsned man. He
fired a volley, and in the confusion Porter broke
his leg. This accident delayed things until the
Tobber had again reached the thick woods. He
is the most desperate character in the region.
It is expected that blood will be spilled before
he gives in.

BROKE THE RECOBD.
Pittsburg-Money Placed at the lowest
Bate Probably Ever Known.
A PROSPECTIVE BOOM FOR IRON.
Tie Ticker Service Kestored and tbe Backet
Shops Again in Clover.
TWO BEAUTT SPOTS IN THE EAST END
Black. & Baird yesterday placed a mort
gage $9,000 on a Smithfield street busi
ness property at 4 per cent Eastern money
in small amounts has been loaned here at
that rate, but this is believed to be the first
instance of the kind in which home capital
was involved. It indicates two things that
money is plenty and that capitalists have
an abiding faith in the permanency of real
estate, which is undoubtedly the best and
safest Investment that can be found.
An iron broker said yesterday: "Hook for a
radical Improvement in the pig iron market
in a very short time. There are several rea
sons for this. It seems to he practically set
tled that last year's scale of wageewill be
adopted without material change. This re
moves an element of uncertainty and gives
makers confidence. They know tbe ground
they stand on. But the principal reason that
I have in view is the great destruction of every
thing at Johnstown and throughout Western
Pennsylvania by the flood.
"The amount of iron involved in this dis
aster is almost beyond computation. The
damage to railroads, although very great, is
the least part of It Thousands of stoves and
tons upon tons of cooking utensils and hard
ware of all sorts were lost or ruined. Nails
will be in great demand when building opera
tions begin. These heavy losses must be made
good, and that without delay. This will make
an active market for all descriptions of iron,
and prices must necessarily advance. There
has been no change In quotations here yet, but
the feeling Is firm and buoyant. Mills and fur
naces, I think, are assured of steady work for
a long time to come."
The bucket shops are again in clover. The
ticker service was restored yesterday, and all
went merry as a marriage. The tariff is said to
be considerably higher, but as tbe lambs will
have to foot tbe bill, a few dollars additional is
a trifling matter. The result was brought
about at a conference of New York Exchange
and teleeraph representatives, at which it was
agreed that as the bucket shops would get the
quotations anyway, the old system had better
be restored, as it was a source of considerable
profit to the telegraph companies.
This is further proof that the bucket shops
cannot be summarily choked off; numerous
attempts to do so having failed. If it were pos
sible it would be a good thing for the bucket
shops to turn the tables and wipe out the New
York Exchange. It Is impossible to kill a dog
by cutting off Its tail .
' Speaking of the placing of a large mortgage
at SO per cent of the assessed value of the prop
erty, a real estate agent remarked yesterday:
"Taking into consideration that the assess
ments have been brought up to the highest
notch it indicates, as they say is the case, that
capitalists are placing money at a very small
margin on home securities, and verifying what
I said a few days ago, which was tbat there is
great faith in the value of our real estate prices
and an abundance of home capital to bo In
vested." There are many beauty spots In and around
Pittsburg beautiful already and to become
more so when fully developed. Among these
may be mentioned Squirrel Hill, Twenty-second
ward, and Oakland. Speaking of the
former a gentleman remarked yesterday: "Land
on and in the vicinity of Squirrel Hill com
mands 4,000 to $5,000 an acre. Sales have been
made at tbe latter price within the past week
"Considering the present and prospective ad
vantages of thelocality for resident purposes,
this is not too big a figure. Rapid transit in a
few months is assured. The full development
of Squirrel will maks the Twenty-second the
boss ward of the city. The same remarks will
apply to Oakland, Nature and wit have done,
or are doing, everything possible to make it at
tractive. The completion of the Fifth avenue
cable car loop will put on the finishing touch.
So great are the attractions of these future
centers of population and refinement that I do
not wonder at the growing demand for prop
erty at each of them."
When a real estate broker employed to sell
land or to find a purchaser therefor negotiates
an exchange for other lands and his principal
himself makes the contract, the broker is under
no legal duty to ascertain correctly the facts
which may affect tbe value of the lands re
ceived in exchange, and he is not responsible
for misrepresentations made to his principal in
good faith concerning the same, as for negli
gence, where there is no claim of lraud. So
held by the Supreme Court of Minnesota in the
case of Coe et al versus Ware.
Hardly Enough Dolus In Stocks to,Keep Up
Stock brokers appeared to be quite "groggy,"
to use a sporting phrase, when they rallied
around Captain .Barbour yesterday morning.
They didn't look business, they didn't talk
business and they didn't act business. They
had no pressing orders, and therefore con
cluded to watch and wait a while longer.
Under these conditions very little was expected
of them. Two trifling sales were made, 10
shares of Citizens' Traction going at 03 and
4 of Switch and Signal A 2 Philadelphia
Gas and Electric were slightly weaker. There
was no particular change in anything else.
A very small crowd faced the board in the
afternoon, and the only transaction was in
Central Traction. G shares of which sold at 82.
For People's Natural Gas 60 was asked.
People's Natural Gas and Pipeage Company
could have been sold at 1 but it was held a
point higher. There was a small demand for
Pittsburg. Allegheny and' Manchester Railway
at 245, but without result. The rest of the list
was featureless. Bids, offers and sales were:

iness Blost of the List Closes
Nbw Yobk, June a The Stock Exchange
resumed business this morning with the tickers
again in motion, and the operations of tbe day
show a marked increase over those of the past
few days, though how much of this may be due
to the tickers is a question. There was cer
tainly more business, both proportionately and
actually, in the regular list than in tbe un
listed shares, though the latter were again ex
tremely active. The news from Chicago was
again of a bearish character, and the report
that no progresshad been made at yesterday's
meeting with the subsequent notice of a further
reduction in rates by the Burlington and North
ern and some other news of a like character
acted as a wet blanket upon the Grangers, and
while Bock Island was very well held all .the
others sagged ofC from the morning's figures
until tbe announcement was made that, the
Northwestern had declared the usual dividends,
when a somewhat better tone was noticed.
The Gould stocks were afterward active and
strong, and Missouri Pacific took its tnrn in
leading the upward movement, though -at the
time it had few followers. There were again
some marked movements among the special
tics, and Alton and Terre Haute distinguished
itself by a spurt of i per cent, with larger
business than usual in that stock. The trad
ing in the trust stocks was again very large,
especially in sugar and lead trusts, and the for
mer acaln shot up about 3 ner cent, though
most of this was lost before the dose. Lead
trusts were more active and steadily road. Most

PEOBABLT A COMPBOMISB.
The Stewart Will Case to be Settled Oat of
the Court Boom.-
New Yoek, June a The Stewart will case
Is In course of compromise. Yesterday Joseph
H. Choate and FJJhu Boot, for the contestants,
and Jndge Hilton waited on Surrogate Ransom
and begged an adjonrment beyond next Mon
day, the day set for argument, on the ground
tbat tbe case was likely to be settled out of
court, ft egotiatlons to tbat end, they said, bad
made substantial progress. The Surrogate set
June, 20 for argument, as a matter of fornix
xnere is not tne least pro Damn ty that any.
thing more will be heard of the casein the
court room. The expenses entailed by the con
test bave so far amounted to over a half
a million dollars. The great question now
is how much will Judee Hilton pay to bave
the case choked off? This suit was brought in
reality for an accounting of his management of
the estate of A. T. Stewart. By Mr. Stewart's
will he recoired $1,000,000. Four days after Mr.
Stewart's death, in consideration of tbat lega
cy, he acquired from Mrs. Stewart a transfer
to himselt of Mr. Stewart's interest of about 90
per cent in the business of A. T. Stewart and
Company. This was in 1S76. In the next nine
years he acquired the Stewart building, various
bank stocks and other property that had been
Mrs. 8 te wart's, and at her death tbe accounts
be kept for her showed her in bis debt about
81,100,000. Figuring from two distinct bases,
Judge Hilton passed from an ordinarily suc
cessful attorney in 1876 to tha possession of
from Jll, 000, 000 to $16,000,000 witn no allowance
for increase by Investment or otherwise in
1SS6, when Mrs. Stewart died.
The testimony in regard to his control over
Mrs. Stewart was astounding. It was proved
without contradiction that he rarely allowed
her ont of his sight, that she signed all sorts of
documents at his bidding, that he charged her
interest on ber drafts at 7 per cent, until tbe
legal rate became 6 per cent, and then at f nil
rates until tne interest cnarges against her and
to his credit were enormous, and that goods
from the store for ber use were charged at ex
cessive figures. Several witnesses testified to
Mrs. Stewartbaring repeatedly declared that
she had given Judge Hilton only a power
of attorney to manage the bniness for her, and
had never intended to transfer the property to
him. Bnt amazine as was all this testimony.
the great surprise in the case came when the
contestants having finished, Jndge Hilton's
lawyers rested their case without a syllable of
testimony In reply. This was in April. Argu
ment was set for May 2a as the time drew
near for Mr. Choate to nncork his oratory, ru
mors began to circulate that a compromise was
on foot. This was disappointing to those who
had watched the case from tbe outside, for a
rare treat bad been anticipated from Mr.
Choate, who never before bad an opportunity
for the exercise of bis peculiar talent for sharp
speechmaking equal to this.

LAXITY ASD NEGLIGENCE.
The Civil Service Commission Says Exami
nations Were Fraudulent and FnrclcaL
Washington. June 6. The Civil Service
Commission has completed Its report on the
result of the recent investigations made by it
into certain matters connected with the Ex
amining Board of the New York Custom House.
Tbe report says:
Tbe Civil Service Commission. having concluded
in part their investigation Into therecent manatee
men t of tha New lork Custom Hon je, sofarastbe
behavior of the local Examining Board and tbe
question of the proper observance of the civil ser
vice law, as retards entrance examinations are
concerned, find that the recent management of the
examinations for admission has been character
ized by great laxity and negligence, and, on the
part of some of the Custom House employes, by
positive fraud. The clerk of the board himself
testifies that certain of the examinations were far
cical in character, and it has been clearly shown
that at least In one case, an applicant for admis
sion had his papers written for him by another
person; tbat applicants bave sometimes found out
the questions In advance owln; to the loose way
of conducting examinations, and have sometimes
been given tbe examination papers beforehand by
Custom Bouse emnloves for nersoual. nolltlcal
and pecuniary considerations.

Dreyfus moved that the sum of 6,000,000 francs

how ready the German Government was to ex
pend money in buying an English Journal
clearly demonstrated that Germany's idea of
warfare was not merely a question of cannon
