OFFICE OF PITTSBUHG DISPATCH. 1
Wednesday. June 12, 1SS9. J
The run of cattle this -week has been too
stron" for the wants of trade. Receipts on
Mondav were 75 carloads, and about fire
loads bare come in since Monday. Of
these a little more than one-half came from
Markets opened on Monday 510o lower
than rates of last week, and closed strong at 10c
lower. The only exception to this was good
heavy stock, of which there were not more
than two loads on the market. Heavy cattle
have been down to bedrock for several weeks
past. As there were few here this week theie
was no chance In price. Prime heavy steers
have come to be a rare quantity in East Lib
erty yards for good and sufficient rea
sons. Our home trade no longer calls for
prime heavy-weight cattle. In receipts of this
week were two loads of steers weighing; from
1.300 to 1,400 pounds, and although they could
hardly be called in thelargest charity prime.they
sold about 10c better than last week's prices, be
cause they catno nearest meeting the ideas of
our butchers. The tirlee naid was SI S3. The
quality of cattle received this week was very
common, in fact much below the average.
There was nothing really prime on the market,
and nothing more than 1,400 pounds in weight.
In the supplies were about a dozen loads of
slop cattle from Louisville. Our butchers here
are very charry of this Kind of cattle. A month
or two ago a number of slop bulls died on the
hands of butchers here, and since that time
tLey have been righting shy of slop cattle. An
old-time stockman said to-day: "I think our
butchers will take more to this class of cattle
when they get to know their value. They are
generally in good order, and will out
kill corn cattle 3c per cut iu
net weight. There is a prejudice against
slop cattle among our butchers, which, I am
convinced, will be removed v,ben they havo
fully tested them. The fact that there were
losses a few weeks ago on this kind of cattle
lias rooted a prejudice which will take a long
time to uproot."
Cattle markets have been slow since Monday,
and a number of loads, unsold, were shipped
The supply of calves, thoagh not as large as
for several weeks past, has been in excess of
demand, and prices are Jc lower than last
Sheep and Lnmbs.
The run has been light, but prices failed to
go up. The uncertainties as to shipping
facilities and unfavorable news from Eastern
markets had a tendency to depress trade all
along the line. A drover from Butler county
said: There is no margin left in our business.
Farmers are unwilling to take less than 4c
for sheep through the section where I buy
stock, and Plttsnurg butchers will not pay this
price." The best price paid at Liberty this
week was 4Jc for fancy wethers weighing
from 95 to 100 pounds. Spring lambs had to be
extra fine to bring CVic. The bulk of spring
lambs on market ranged from 4Sc per
There. was a heavy run on Monday, the
amount being about 31 loads. The result was
lower prices on Tuesday, which is one of the
off days at the Liberty yards. Tops sold at
4 354 40. Markets have recovered in part
from the depression of yesterday, owing to
light receipts to-day, and are active with 4 50
4 60-as the range. At these prices there can
be little margin to sellers. Chicago advices to
day show markets there about the same as
here. There have been times within a year or
two that packers could buy cheaper here than

Persons suffering from weak back will take
comfort in reading the following letter from
Mr. A. W. Barrett, of Oswego, N. Y.:
"Ten years ago I was afflicted with a lame

hardly walk or got about. Hearing mnch said
about Allcock's Porous Plasters, I applied two

was very mnch better. I put on fresh plasters
at the end of 10 days, and two weeks after

Chicago Trading in wheat was quite active
to-day and the feeling unsettled and nervous.
The course of prices was irregular, ruling
higher for the nearer dellreries in fact, for all
futures except December, which was easy.
June fluctuated within lc range and closed K
leaver than yesterday. July opened c
higher, advanced c more, sold off Xc. then
advanced sharply c, receded Ho and closed
about c higher than yesterday. August and
September were advanced X6Je and closed
about Viic higher.
A feature of the market was the comparative
weakness for December. This future ad
ranced ic at the opening, and after that
sold off &c. selling from i to lc discount on
July prices, and closed y,a higher than yester
day. The unsettled and nervous condition of the
market was duo to rumors of possible manipu
lation for July. Some large traders have been
credited with having made large purchases,and
these rumors hare induced the short interest
to cover freely. As trading has centered prin
cipally in July delivery, that future was the
most affected and thus accounted for the sharp
advance. The short Belling for July had un
doubtedlv been very large.
Corn ruled quiet and inactire the greater
part of the session, fluctuations being limited
to KVc range, and trading was entirely of a
local character. The feeling was comparatively

A SOUTHSIDE KICK.
An Earnest Demand Comes Up for
Rapid Transit Over There.
THE HORSE CARS ARE TOO SLOW.
Co-Operation in Farming 0ns of the Tend
encies of Modern Times.
HINTS FOE PENNSYLVANIA GEAKGEES
Bapid transit is a luxury, and a necessity
as well, unkown on the Southside. Just
whythat part of the city has been ignored
in this matter is a puzzle to some people.
There is evidently a good opening over there
for one or two traction roads. Carson street
is admirably adapted to this system of loco
motion. The river route to Temperance
ville is another inviting field. The rapid
increase of population cannot be adequately
accommodated by the horse cars, and a
quicker way of moving about is urgently
demanded. Said a Southside gentleman
"We have outgrown tho horse cars. They
are too slow to meet our requirements. We
need quicker transit very badly to enable us
to get to onr places of business without losing
time. The trip along Carson street in the horse
cars is torture to a man in a hurry. The com
pany does the best it can, but there are so
many humps on the street that it is impossible
to make fast time. I think the company would
make a big strike by changing their plant to a
traction road. This would result in another
advantage. It would attract population and
enhance the ralue of property. This is our
greatest need, next to good water, and I hope
we will soon find relief. Travel, I am confi
dent, would be heavy enough from the start to
make such a road profltabl e. What 1 hare said
are only hints, but I hope they will not fall on
Combination of capital, the absorption of the
individual in the company, is the tendency of
the times. One result of this has been to won
derfully cheapen nearly all the articles of daily
use on the farm. A steel plow that formerly
cost S25 can now be had for S15. A steel mower
a few years ago could not be had for less than
S65; now $40 will buy a better one. A self
binder ten years' back was $215; now a much
more complete and durable machino can be had
for just one-half the price. The products of
the farm, too, hare felt the g eat fall in prices;
and farming conducted unac old methods, and
with antiquated tools, will not and cannot be
made profitable. Small tracts of land, owned
and worked by the family, with the oc
casional help now and then of one or two out
siders, can be made profitable, and in the hands
of deep thinkers and energetic workers made
unusually so, especially near large and reliable
markets. But only a few hare these unusual
In Germany, France and Belgium, it has been
discovered "that rery small tracts of land are
detrimental to the owners themselves and to
the best interests f those counties, and steps
bare been taken within the past few years to
enlarge, rather tban contract, areas. The
reason of this is simple enough: To farm
profitably at present requires labor-saving
machinery. A farmer owning fifty acres of
land, and baring, say ten acres in wheat,
twenty-Are in grass, and ten in corn, and the
balance in garden, cannot afford to buy the im
proved tools to work these crops to the best
advantage. He labors under a disadvantage at
once, and to compete with wealthier neighbors,
has to work the harder with old tools, and
press into service his entire family, if he wishes
to make a profit. The owner of 100 or more
acres is not much better off in proportion, for
the plain reason that his capital is locked up
in land and tools, with rarely a surplus to buy
for cash when necessaries are wanted. He
works land that needs fertilization to be made
productire. and with unskilled, uncertain and
high-priced labor to compete with, the pro
ducts of the virgin soils of the Great West,
grown upon wide 'areas with the best ma
chinery, without manure, and then sent East
by rail at cheaper rates than we can deliver
them from our own lands, some twenty miles
Co-operation, says an agricultural authority,
or the combination of a dozen or more land
owners working under the supervision of a
single head and a board of directors, would be
found a means of solving this difficulty and
ever-present problem. We have co-operative
cheese and butter factories that are profitable,
and hare been so for years. Our granges.
founded upon much the same general plan,
hare done great good in the same line of work.
The co-operative workingmen'B supply stores
of London and Liverpool hare been unusually
well managed. .Their stock is double the par
value, and none to be had at that, and their
patrons are enabled to get their supplies at the
lowest wholesale rates, and a dividend in the
A co-operative farm company has been three
years in existence in England, and, though not
rery successful, still the projectors hare re
ceived higher wages than are paid on the sur
rounding estates, hare lived better, and feel
much encouraged to continue. Their work is
watched with much interest. The great advan
tage of this means of farming will be seen at a
glance. Families could lire contiguous; would
enjoy more the comforts of town life; hare
better social advantages of church and school;
the land could be worked under an intelligent
system of cropping, and each owner, having an
interest in the success of the undertaking,
would do what he knows how to do best under
one head. Then, again, a large quantity of
produce of good quality could be bandied
cheaper, better prices could be realized and
the market taken advantage of. The best ma
chinery could be had in quantity and at low
The farming in England is mostly tenant
farming, but in some respects this is a great
advantage. The farmer pays a rent, it is true,
and it may be a high one, yet he leases his
land on long time, the permanent improre
msnts are paid by his landlord, and his indi
vidual capital is free to be used in working
and feeding his crops to the rery best ad
rantage. Having capital, he has opportuni
ties to buy or sell such as are of the utmost
ralue to him. With us we own onr land, hut

Pnt-4,000 acres under co-operative manage

better class of work, as all would participate
in the success or failure of the scheme. Co
operation is new to many, but it is destined, at
no distant dayj to enter largely into our land

A NARROW ESCAPE
Next Thins to a Gooso Ess nt tho Stock
The stock call yesterday morning was barren
of results so far as sales were concerned. At
the close the familiar goose egg ornamented
the board. It was all talk and no elder. It
should not be inferred from this remark, how
ever, that Captain Barbour is in the habit of
keeping apple juice on tap. Said a broker:
There are few orders in the way, and the
market will probably drag along for some time
yet. I do not look for much of a rerlral of the
speculative interest before fall." Bids and
offers were too wide apart to be compromised
in the existing condition of the market. Prices
were well sustained, and no attempt was made
to force anything to the sticking point. Phila
delphia Gas could hare been sold at S6, hut
was held a point higher. Central Traction was
in the market at 32. Citizens' at 70V and
Pittsburg at 6 these figures being a slight
adrance.orcr those of Tuesday. Electric was
offered at64V with 63J bid. People's Natural
Gas and Pipeage Company was wanted at
16, but 18 was asked. The rest of the list was
In the afternoon 100 shares or Pittsburg
Junction Railroad was sold 2. Philadelphia
Gas was a little stronger, being held at S7K
Electric was weaker, at 64. There was no
change in the tractions. La Noria was offered
at liZ with IK bid. A broker said: 'The per
sistency with which this stock Is held up shows
that It is controlled by a clique. Every effort
to depress it is met by a counter movement,
and the sales permitted are just enough to bold
it level. Itlookstomeasif itwerebelngworked
for a boom when the controlling power gets
.ererythingin shipshape." There were no other
feaMres. Bids and offers are appended:

The OH Market Holds lis Own on a Small
The oil market was quiet and firm yesterday,
with a narrow range of prices. It opened at
84c, Y&c higher than the close of the previous
day, but soon sold off to 83c, where it hung
for some time with rery little doing. Better
selling in the afternoon brought about a reac
tion, and the price adranced to the opening
figure, 8i!c. From this point the market grad
ually receded to 83c, and closed with bids at
that price. Tuesday ,s clearings were 1,406,000
barrels. Among the bullish influences at work
dunng the day may be mentioned the increased
firmness In the general stock list and a report
that a process had been discovered for refining
Ohio oil for domestic purposes. Sprould: Law

Holds Up the Stock Market Renewed Ac
tivity In UcndltiB Louisville and
Nashrille Scores a Bis Ad
ranco Strong and
New York, June 12. The stock -market
again showed a gaip in the total amount of
business done to-day. but while the tone of the
dealings during the greater portion of the
time was firm to strong, it was not fully main
tained in the later hours, and the final figures
are something off from the best of the day.
The buying to-day was largely credited to out
side interests; and Chicago, London, Boston
and Philadelphia furnished their quotas of
orders. At the same time the selling to realize
the profits accrued upon the recent rlse.was
very large, and In the general list this prevented
tho improvement wbicn would .hare resulted
from the liberal purchases. The temper of the
room, however, was decidedly bullish, which
feeling was in a great measure due to the
growing strength and interest in the Vandor
bllt stocks, which again to-day were among the
leading shares in point of activity. .
The trusts, seem to have retired. J. torn, the
first place and the coal stocks occupied the
first position from a speculative point of riew.
Jersey Central, after scoring a further gain of
z per cent orer the besr price of yesterday, felt
the pressure later, and retired losing all of us
early improvement. The- purchase of the
Adirondack Railroad by the Delaware and
Hudson was the occasion of a further spurt in
that stock, but, like Jersey, it could not hold
the advance. Lackawanna moved within a
comparatively narrow range, and ended the
day with a small decline, but the feature of the
"ay was the renewed activity, in 'Reading,
which road, it was said, was making arrange
ments of value to the company, and. helped by
tbeadrancein. the price of coal, made a material
gain as the result of tho day's operations. The
dealings in the stock reached a high fignre and.
large blocks changed hands amid considerable
excltoment at times. The strongest stocks on
the list, however, was Louisville and Nashrille,
in which the dealings became larger toward de
livery hour, and scored the highest advance of
the day. The Grangers were not neglected,
thongh their movements were made within a
comparatively nhrrow range, and the decision
of the St. Paul to abide by the ruling of the
association no doubt did much to maintain the
strong bullish feeling which prevailed among
The opening was made at advances of small
fractions except for Jersey Central, which was
up M and while thetgeneral list was quiet the
interest was centered- in less than a dozen
stocks. Material advances were made in those'
shares, however, with the grangers leading fol
lowed by .the Vanderbllts, Louisrille and
Nashrille and others. The coal stocks then
becarhe tho center of interest and toward noon
marked adrances were made by Jersey and
Delaware and Hudson. Reading followed in
the afternoon and the general list then began
to show more animation, with fractional gains
all over the list Realization, however, became
rery marked In the last hour and prices yielded
all over the list, though marked strength was
shown in some of the low-priced shares, such
as lennessee Coal, Louisville, New Albany and
Chicago, Denver and Rio Grande and some
The tone of the close was rather heaTy at
some concession from the best prices. The
trnsts were less active and showed but little
strength outside of Sugar Trust, thongh among
the other shares Brunswick was much more
acTe than usual of late and moved up to 25,
and Phcenlx retired somewhat. The final
changes are generally In the direction of higher
ngures,though they were for fractional amounts
only, except for Big Four, which is up i, and
Louisville and Nashrille, which rose 1.
Railroad bonds were again active, though
the large aggregate of the sales was principally
due to the increased Interest in the Reading
securities, and out of the total day's business of
52,592,000, the Reading first incomes contrib
uted $383,000, the fours 8291,000 and the seconds
8165,000. The Atlantic and Pacific fours were
a'sorery actire, and their sales amounted to
9161,000. The general tone of the dealings was
again firm, but the changes in quotations were
rery slight, and the important gains and losses
are few in number. The most marked move
ment was the further advance in the Chicago
and St. Lonis consols, which rose 2, to 89, but
which so lately were quoted at SO, a net gain of
9 per cent. This rise is based entirely upon the
recent decision of Judfre OreRham whmli pnn.
