But is Advised to Do Better Things in Favor

A, HAPPY CONDITION OP TEEASDEI
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch.
" Tuesday. June 11, 1SS9. J
At the annual meeting for the election of
officers held by the Grain Exchange to-day
some interesting statistical information was
presented by the retiring officials. President
McHenry presented an elaborate report of
the transactions for the year past, which, at
Its close, was indorsed by the hands and feet of
the members, who ere present in full force.
Amonft many interesting items in the Presi
dent's report vi e cull only a few. The report in
full is well worthy of publication. Its modest
author shows a command of English and
power of expression, which show that the Ex
chance made no mistake in their selection of a
presiding officer for the year just closed.
Following is an extract from President Mc
MilIe in toe past we hare been free to criticise
flie action of railroad officials charged -n itblbe
adjustment of 'freight rates, when the policy
adopted was against our Interests, we should at
the tame time be Just, and give due credit In all
cases when arbitrary rules are relaxed and any
relief Is afforded. In the arrangement now pre
valent or allowing grain to be lorwarded from
this to interior points at the through rate from
point of shipment, except a snitching charge
w hen brought Into the yards, there Is such are
lief; ami the continuance of this arrangement will
be or great benefit to the members of the ex
change. Praise for Railroad Officials.
For such concessions and consequent advantages
acknowledgments are dne to the officials of the
Pennsylvania Railroad system, and Me trust that
In the near future still more liberal things will be
devised for us by these officials, and also by those
In authority In the management or all transport
ing lines centering here."
Another point which President McHcnry's re
port urged with emphasis was that members or
the Exchange should concentrate their operations
In the open meetings ofthcjloard, instead or do
ing as they had been in ycarspast namelr. trad
ing outside, on the curbstones and in offices and
yards. Very little of the business done bv the
members apoears on the records, and the Presi
dent urged that all should use their best efforts ito
have Eales made in open meetings of the Ex
change. Thft fnllnwtncr statist! were cathered from
President McHenry's and Superintendent '
Alexanders annual reports:

bushels ot wheat, 1,201.200 bushels of corn, 412,

600.000 bubels of barley.
The above receipts only include the grain,
flour and hay delivered in the railyards of the
Not on the Records,
Large amounts were handled by dealers here
which do not stop, and are therefore not re
ported in exchange transactions. Superinten
dent Alexander stated in bis report that from
one-third to one-half of the amount handled by
Pittsburg gram merchants did not appear on
the Exchange's records.
The average of prices for the year were:

This work of supererogation would,however,
have strong demands upon it the coming year,
as snrnlns funds would all be needed and more.
The chSplain closed by saying that man's ex
tremity was God's opportunity, and that he
had no doubt the needed funds wonld be forth

UIjL OF ENCOURAGEMENT.
The Mortuary Report and the Impnre
Chief Brown, of the Department of Public
Safety, held a little consultation yesterday
afternoon with Dr. McCandless over the weekly
mortuary report just completed by the Health
Bureau. Dr. McCandless told him that, when
compared with the same week of a year ago, it
showed absolutely no increase in sickness or
death. Outside of the extra number of deaths
at hospitals among tbe Johnstown sufferers
brought to town, tho death rate was as low as
ever. This Indicates that the river water of
last week was no more injurious than usual.
The report shows that there were 87 deaths
In the week. Of the decedents, 20 were resi
dents of tno Old City. 65 of tbe .East End, 24 of
the Southside, and S died in hospitals.
If In every hcuse a little of Piatt's Chlorides
were used moth sickness would be prevented.

Prices Unsettled OaU In the Rat.
Chicago Quite a large business was
transacted in wheat to-day and a lower
range of prices was established, especially for
the deferred futures. June closed about a
lower. July opened llKc lower, sold off Jc
more, rallied JgJJc, receded again and closed
about c lower than yesterday. December
closed about 1c lower. The break in the mar
ket was attributed to the bright and clearing
weather and the Government report.
The principal factor no doubt was the June re
port of the Agricultural Department, which,
although showing a falling off of three points
in condition, was rather better than many
operators had calculated on. The figures as
presented by the department Indicate a much
larger yield than last year. A .great deal of
long wheat, which had been bought inf xpecta
tion of realizing higher prices, was placed on
sale and the offerings were heavy. Shorts took
advantage of the weakness and bought in, one
prominent local dealer being credited with
covering freely, and the buying from this source
checked further decline.
A fair business was reported In com, the
feeling developed being rather unsettled, the
market ruling weak early and firmer later.
The weaker tone early was attributed to the
decline in wheat and more favorable weather,
and later the anticipated arrivals had a
strengthening influence The market opened
c below the closing prices of yesterday, was
stead) for a time, then advanced c reacted
some, closing a shade lower than yesterday.
Oats were traded in moderately, and a steady
feeling prevailed during most of the day.
Prices advanced ic Later, quietness pre
vailed, and the market closed steady at about
the same price as on yesterday.
A. little more life was manifested in tbe mar
ket for mess pork. Opening sales were made
at a 2K5c decline, and a further reduction ot
7$10c was submitted to later. Toward the
cloe the feeling was steadier, and prices rallied
7K10c and closed rather quiet.
Considerable interest was manifested in the
lard market. Prices . ruled 2$5c lower, and
the market closed tame at medium figures.
Trading was fairly active in the market for
short rib sides, and the feeling was easier.
Prices ruled 25c lower, and thn market
closed quiet at outside figures.

The Illinois State Board of Agriculture has
secured a flock of African ostriches as a
novelty for the coming fair. The flock will con
sist of seven birds, full grown, and will be on
exhibition during the entire week of the State
lair. The expense of securing this attraction
was too great for one State Board to incur and
it could only be done by pooling the expense
and engaging the ostriches for the month of
September by the respective boards of agricul
ture of Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Illinois.
Cole Younger, who was notorious in West
ern Wyoming as a bad man, was drowned Sat
urday while attempting to ford a river on
horseback. The only witness to the accident
was Ernest Williams, who has been a partner
with Younger in several horse-stealing scrapes.
He told so many contradictory stories of the
manner In which Younger met his death that
he was arrested ahd lodged 4n jail at Evans
ton, and he will be held until the recovery of
l'ounger's body. The men became acquainted
while serving- a term in the Salt Lake Penitentiary.
A RAINBOW OF HOPE
Spans the Business Horizon, Presag
ing Good Times Coming.
BIG BEVENUE FOE PITTSBURG.
A Local Capitalist Sumps a Cool Hundred
Thousand Into Keal Estate.
FDTDEE 0P JOHNSTOWN AND SEATTLE
The hopeful feeling among business men
of jail classes throughout the country is
largely dne to the improved agricultural
prospects. The reports from the crop growing
districts are of the most flattering descrip
tion, and, to quote a prominent railroad
President, "should the promises which they
hold out-be only fair there is no doubt that
the common carriers will have ample stuff to
move at reasonably remunerative rates."
"With the improvement of the general situa
tion there is less talk of woe and disaster
than the conntrv has been accustomed to
during the past few months. The future, so
far as it can be discerned, has no discouraging
features. It Is gratifying to know that Pitts
burg is In ood shape to take Immediate advan
tage of the expected turn in the tide.
Referring to the proposed improvement of
Diamond street, a gentleman who has given
the subject much attention from every possible
point of view, remarked yesterday afternoon:
"The widening of the street would not cost the
city a dollar. The expensa would be paid by
the property holders. It would increase the
value of the property on the street at least
$2,000,000, and add not far from $100,000 per an
num to the revenue of the city. These, it seems
tome, are sufficient reasons why the work
should be undertaken. But, In addition, the
opening of the street would developl the
suburban and country trade, which wonld be a
source of revenue to the city. All of this is
outside and beyond tbe fact that the Improve
ment is needed for tho comfort and con
venience of the citizens. The way Councils is
dilly-dallying over the matter makes me tired."
The destruction of tho city of Seattle, Wash.
T., by tire promises to be a blessing in disguise,
as was the case with Chicago. President Har
per, of the Bank of Pittsburg, said to The
Dispatch representative yesterday: "Seattle
was built of wood, of which there are almost
inexhaustible supplies of the best kinds in the
world in the immediate vicinity. Pine and
redwood were the kinds generally used. The
latter is a hard wood and is unequaled for in
side work. Many of the buildings were mag
nificent in size, style of architecture and finish.
The new city which will rise from the rums of
the old will be of brick. This will involve no
great difficulty, as clay of the finest quality Is
abundant in that part of the Territory." Com
ing nearer home, Mr. Harperremarked: "Johns
town is one of our own children. That it will
be rebuilt there can be no doubt. The old town
had some disagreeable features which will no
doubt be remedied in the new. The recuper
ative energies of onr people are so great that
within five years, or probably less time, few
traces of the disaster will remain. The econom
ical and intelligent expenditure of the money
now pouring in, together with what will bo
done by the State, will soon transform the
hideous waste into a place of beauty, the abode
of a large population, teeming with manifold
forms of Industry,"
To show that real estate Is attracting tbe at
tention of capitalists to an extent scarcely ever
before conceived of, a Fourth avenue agent
said yesterday: "I have just returned from a
wild gooBe chase. I went to see a gentleman
who, to my knowledge, had $100,000 of idle
moneyless than a month ago. I wanted to
place some of it on mortgage. He said he had
none left, that it had all gone into real estate
in the city in amounts ranging from $4,000 to
$15,000, He added that he would have a fresh
supply of funds in a short time, and would then
accommodate me. If the mortgage business
keeps up I am afraid home money will become
scarce and we will be compelled to draw from
tbe East. This is an alternative which thosa
who have thus far held aloof from this interest
snould carefully ponder."
The season has been rather unfavorable to
some kinds of vegetables, and a scarcity with
higher prices next winter is not Improbable
Potatoes have suffered the most, a large per
centage having either rotted in the ground or
been dwarfed by the cool, wet weather. "I
have been looking into the prospects of the
potato crop," remarked a Liberty street com
mission merchant yesterday, "and find that it
is In bad condition. If the late planting turns
out no better than the first is doing, they will
be scarce and high in price next fall and win
ter. Tomatoes are doing badly also, and I
think consumers will have to pay more than 8
or 10 cents a can for tbem next season. Every
thing else in the vegetable line, so far as I have
observed, promises an average yield."
JUST WHERE IT WAS.
A Dnll Stock Market Resulting From n'n Ab
sence of Orders.
The speculative interest is one of the slowest
to rally from a depression, proof of which may
be seen daily at the local Stock Exchange.
Transactions yesterday were limited to three
issues, and the sales were only 145 shares.
Switch and Signal was weaker, but otherwise
the'list was practically unchanged. A broker
said: "There are very few orders on hand, and
no material change can occur so long as this
condition exists. I do not look for much of a
change before fall." Bids, offers and sales fol

Terr Little Doing nt tho Banks Better
The money market was quiet and featureless
yesterday. Applications for loans were few
and far between, and routine business was
hardly up to the average. The weather was of
the kind which induces people to keep off the
streets, and no doubt contributed materially
to the general lethargy. There was neither
news nor rumor of importance at any of tbe
banks visited. The clearings wera $1,884,819.88
and tne balances $457,151,72. The prospect re
mains good for a busy season when the exist
ing depressing Influences which environ the
business situation shall have been overcome.

The Oil Market Braces Up and Slakes a
The steady diminution of the working stock
naturally has a tendency to stiffen the oil mar
ket. This was noticeable yesterday, and Im
parted more vim to the trading than has been
seen for some time. The market opened at 83c,
in above Mqnday's close, sold upt o 84c, broke
to 833c, recovered later and sold-at'84Jic held
between that point and 8334c until late in tbe
afternoon, when it rallied a little and closed at
84c, showing a gain of. c for tbe day, New
York-and Pittsburg were moderate buyers.
A, broker said: "Whether the producers ac
cept tbe Standard's guarantee of 90c on July 1
or not, I look for a radical ohange in the mar
ket after that date. They may sell to the rad
nopoly or they may not that will depend upon
the price when the time for action arrives but
in either eveut a disturbing element will be re
moved and operators will know better what to
do. Judging from statistics, the market should
advance. On the other hand, tbe diminished
number of regular trains ind the absence of
outside interest may set all calculations at de
fiance. These considerations render the future
course of tbe market extremely doubtful. .All

Good News Saves Western Stocks Coalers

Notable Advances Scored.
New Yobk, June H. The stock market. tOj
day was quiet and firmer for most of the list,
but in spots it was decidedly active and very
strong, and among such shares marked ad
vances were scored as ithe result of the day's
operations. Tbe status of affairs in the West
showed no 'change; the interest in the granger
stocks was small, and they became compara
tively quiet, with small fluctuations. The news
of the day from the West was rather of an en
couraging tenor and there was no Inducement
to attack the Western stocks. Tbe bullish feel
ing upon tbe Vanderbilt stocks continued, and
those share, wbile not so prominent as yester
day, were more active than usual and strong
all the way, though their movements were on a
The trusts were less active, bnt exhibited the
same buoyancy, and sugar reached the highest
point yet attained in the rise, tho rumors in re
gard to it taking tbe shape that there is a large
amount of undivided cash in the treasury of the
company. London prices this morning were
slightly lower than figures of last evening, and
this market got no encouragement dnring tbe
day from that center, showing that the specu
lators on the other side are not in sympathy
with the present movement. Notwithstanding
this fact, first prices here were generally from
to K per cent above onr last
evening's figures, and while the interest in'
the trading was confined to a few shares, such
as the Coalers. St. Paul. H ew England and tbe
trn&ts, further advances were scored in tbe
early dealings, which, however, outside of the
trusts were fractional only.
Toward noon the market drifted into dull
ness and some recessions from the prices of
the first hour were made, but after that time
there was renewed buying on a large scale in
the Coalers, and Jersey Central rapidly ad
vanced to 112, the highest price known in the
stock for years. Delaware and Hudson fol
lowed closelv, and at last crossed Lackawanna,
reaching 147, while Lackawanna was not
sluggish, especially toward tbe close. Even
New York, Susquehanna and Western be
came active and advanced materially. The
movement in Reading was smaller, but the
transactions in tho stock during the last
two hours were on a large scale There
were the usual reasons In the last
hour, but tbe strength of tho market
was renowed and the close- was active and
strongest at about the highest prices of the
day. Among tbe low priced shares there were
marked movements In Southern Pacific and
Colorado Coal. In, the unlisted department
there was little doing outside of the trusts, and
wbile the Phoenix was higher Brunswick was

GEOUNDS EOfi DIVORCE.
Jnrigo Whlto Explnlns Them In Refusing
an Application Two Others Grant
ed A Will Contest General
' Court -News.
Judge White, yesterday, handed down an
opinion, refusing a divorce in the case of John
Jones against Mary Jones. The
divorce had been asked for on the
grounds of "fraud, duress, and coercion." The
duress and coercion, it was held by Judge
White, consisted in that he was arrested on a
charge brought by the girl, and nothaving bail,
rather than go to jail consented to marry her
The fraud and deceit consisted in alleged mis.
representations by tbe respondent. These it
was held were not grounds for a divorce.
Continuing Judge White said:
"Before parties enter Into the marriage con
tract they are bound to make inquiries as to
the character and previous life of each other,
and if they neglect to do so and are deceived it
is their own fault. Courts should not encour
age parties settling a case by a marriage cere
mony which is to nave no other effect than sav
ing the man from going to prison. To grant
divorces In such cases, because the parties do
dot live together as man and wife afterward, is
to make the law a fC5 and the marriage vow
A divorce was granted in the case of Mrs
Efflo W. Brown against John R. T. Brown.
Mrs. Brown was the daughter of R. KRiggs,
McKeesport, and Brown was from Brooklyn,
N. Y. The couple were married in 1SS4. In
the testimony taken it was claimed that Brown
brought to bis home Miss Gertie Wheeler as a
boarder. He represented her as an orphan and
an heiress, but she proved to have been a ser
vant or "checker" in the dining room of a hotel
in New York. Afterward Brown registered in
tbe Home Hotel with Miss Wheeler as J. R. T.
Brown and sister. Their conduct was snch that
they were watched by the hotel management
and finally ordered to leave. It was also testi
fied to by Mr. Riggs. the father of Mrs. Brown,
that Brown, who had represented himself as a
banker, had forged bis name to a check for
$2,000, and committed numerous other rascali
ties. No defense was brought forward by
Brown, and the divorce was granted.
A divorce was also granted in the case of
Frank Fisher against Martha J. Fisher. It was
claimed that Mrs. Fisher deserted her husband,
and, a few years later, married a colored man
A Contested Will Case.
A hearing was bad, in the Orphans' Conrt
yesterday in tbe case of the contested will of
Mrs. Lucy Oswald. Mrs. Oswald was the widow
of Charles Oswald, of Etna. Oswald, about
two years ago, cut his child's throat and then
committed suicide by cutting his own throat.
As a result, when Mrs. Oswald died, her sole
heir nnder the inter-State laws was her mother,
Mrs. Jeremiah McCauley, aged 77 years. A will
was left, however, giving her estate, val
ued at about 3,000, to Mrs. Mary J.
Smith. The latter .had been a neigh
bor -of Mrs. Oswald, and had nursed
herdurlng her last illness. The will itas writ
ten by Mrs. Smith, andshe was tbe sole legatee,
with the exception of $100 bequeathed to the
Union Centenary Methodist Church. Mrs. Os
wald died on March 23, 1SSS, and It is claimed,
though the will is dated February 2.5. it was not
made until March 10 or 11, 1883. Undue influ
ence and testamentary incapacity were also al
leged. After the testimony bad been taken,
the Court decided to grant an issue, and ordered
the case to be certified to tbe Common Pleas
Court for a jury trial.

Office of Pittsburg Dispatch, 1
Tuesdat, June U, 1S89. i
Country Produce Jobbing Prices.
There is no let-up to firmness of egg market.
Ohio cheese is in active demand at quotations.
A leading jobber said to-day: "I have notbeen
able for a day or two past to procure enough
Ohio cheeses to meet demands. There Is not a
box left in my warehouse, and prices are firm
for this season of tbe year." Old potatoes are
still drifting upward. Home-raised strawber
ries are coming in freely and find ready sale.
Maryland berries being a few hours behind
time arriving, were slow and in buyers' favor.
There is general complaint among produce men
concerning delay of trains. All stuff coming
to markets tbe past week has been a day ortwo
behind time, and as a result that which Is per
ishable is more or less damaged. A day or two
more will, no doubt, remedy this difficulty.
