. Through receipts of cattle are the smallest
this week for years past The reason is
obvious. The washouts on the Pennsyl
vania railroads hare diverted a large amount
of through stock to the New York roads. It
appears tnat local demands hold up to the
average. Toe quality ot cattle received this
week bas not been up to the standard, and
hence ihere lias been a decline of 10c per cwt
on last week's prices, except for the few loads
which met the requirements or our home
hatchers. Smooth, batcher cattle from 1.200
to 1,300 pounds w ere in demand, and more of
this kind than were on the maikct would have
found ready sale at last week's prices.
It will be Been by the accompanying report
thathoj receipts were less than one-half ot
last and the previous week's receipts. Not
withstanding light run, prices failed to ad
vance to any material degree. In fact, they
fell off Monday ami only recovered the lost
ground to-day, because of light receipts. Bogs
sold here loner than at Chicago in the fore
part of the week. The range to-day Is fl 45
4 60, choice light hogs being in best demand.
Sheep and lambs, though in lighter supply
than for months past barely held their own
with last week's prices.
Not Bt All Comforting.
A leading drover who for years has been
operating at Hen's Island,said recently, "live
stock markets of late furnish very few grains
of comfort to dealers. For the past week or
two I doubt if any man who, buys cattle in
Chicago and sells it here has been able to come
out even. Something is made on hogs, but
nothing on cattle. The dressed beef firms are
ready to Day more than we drovers can afford
to pay. Armour's and Swift's go into markets
and buy whatever their trade demands, at
prices, often, which would be ruinous to us, as
we could not get the same here, I doubt if
there Is any profit at present to the dressed
beef firms, so far as their trade here is con
cerned. They make their money in smaller

Choeae and Italians.
, Some items on the Sweitzer cheese trade
were recently gathered from one ot our leading
jobbers which are here jotted down. The vol
ume of trade is scarcely up to last season, and
prices are full 3c per pound lower. The trade
in the city and immediate vicinity has declined
fully 25 per cent, which the dealer referred to
above attributed to the closing up of so many
ealoons, which are among the best patrons of
this industry. Our jobbers here, who control
the product of many Ohio and Wisconsin fac
tories, have been puling trade into new fields,
and. while margins arc closer than ever before,
the total handled by Pittsburg firms, will show
very little, if any. decline in volume from last
lltallan cheese is sold in this market In
preater quantity than ever before. This
cheese must have an age of two or three years
before it is marketable, and is only used by
Italians and at the larger hottls. A new dis
tinction in our Italian population was de
veloped by this interview with the jobber ot
Hweitzer and Limburger cheese. Said he: "Oar
Italian population is gaining every year, and is
classified as lemon or Roman and railroad
Italians. The former come from the southern
part of Italy, and are heavy consumers of
Roman cheese, which they use in soups and
macaroni. Of this cheese wo are now
handling 15,000 pounds annually. Five
years ago we handled about 1,000
pounds. A decade ago this Roman cheese
was an unknown quantity in Pittsburg mar
kets. Railroad Italians generally hail from the
more northerly parts of Italy, bordering on
the Alps and Switzerland. In the native land
tbey acquired a taste for Sweitzer cheese, and
are among our heaviest customers in this line
after the saloons. You can readily classify the
Italian population by the kind of cheese to
which they take."

Wheat Active nnd Nervous All Options
"Higher Except December Corn and
Oats Weaker Hog Products
Qalct and Sll.btly
Chicago A large business was again trans
acted in wheat to-day, and the feeling devel
oped was quite unsettled and as nervous as
yesterday. The market, too, showed consider
able strength. June was quiet most of the ses
sion and closed Kc lower than yesterday. July
opened weak and KJ lower, then steadily
advanced ljc receded, c again sold up
c,cased off slightly and closed about Jc bigh
er than yesterday. August and. September
opened a shade lower, advanced lJiSW1 and
closed lc higher. December was c lower at
the opening, advanced lc and closed c high
er than yesterday.
The market showed more strength, on the
whole, than yesterday and closed firm. Ru
mors of fair export buying at the seaboard and
more inquiry here and in the neighboring mar
kets, together with unfavorable crop reports
from the Northwest, were the reasons assigned.
Besides the talk of manipulation had a tenden
cy to affect the market, though there probably
was nothing more in this gossip than that the
market had been oversold and that shorts were
anxious to cover, especially as it was believed
that the new crop of winter wheat would notbe
marketed as early as was expected. ,
Eastern parties and St. Louis were reported
as having bought freely. Rain Is wanted in the
Northwest, and the weather bulletin reported
clear weather in that section, though private
advices reported a passing shower, while in the
South, where harvesting is under way. rain is
A moderate business was transacted in corn,
and the feeling developed was rather easier,
slightly lower prices being established. The
easier tone was attributed mainly to the fine
weather, which had a weakening influence on
tke more distant futures. The market opened
KKC lower than the closing prices of yester
dav, fluctuated within c range, and closed
KKc lower than yeBterday.
Oats were fairly active, but weaker. Prices
for September declined JitRS&e, which was
fairly maintained until the close. July received
fair support after a decline of JKKc, and ral.
lied to outside figures.
A quiet and rather dull feeling prevailed in
the market for bog products. Offerings were
fair, and the demand from all sources was lim
ited. July and September monopolized the

KAPID TRANSIT AND BEAL ESTATE
There was the usual amount of talk on
Fourth avenue yesterday, but it was of the
kind that people affect' when tbey have
little else to do. It was airy and miscellane
ous. This should not be taken, however, to
mean that nothing was going on; for it is a
fact, often noted with admiration, that the
average Pittsburger seldom boasts of his
business achievements. As Longfellow puts
it, he is willing to "labor and to wait" for
his reward, feeling certain that it will come m
One of the topics discussed by a little group
of Southside gentlemen was the necessity for
rapid transit In that part o the city, as pointed
nut in The Dispatch. They all agreed that
it would be a great benefit, as it would build up
business and increase the value of property.
A Temperanceville man who was present
added his testimony: "It is a great mistake,"
said he, "to think that nearly everybody liv
ing along Sawmill run is employed in the neigh
boring iron mills. A great many of them work
or do business in Pittsburg, and they keenly
feel the need ot quicker transit than tbey have.
The natural attractions of the place are unsur
passed. All that is needed to build it up Is the
adoption of a system of conveyance which
would transport passengers to and from the
city in five or ten minutes instead of twice or
three times as long, as is the case now. This
would give us such a boost that your fancy
places in the East End would nave to hustlo to
save their laurels."
From rapid transit to real estate is but a
step, their relationship being of the most inti
mate nature "I see It stated," remarked a
prominent agent, "that loans at 4 per cent
on city realty are nothing unusual. There is
some confusion here which should be cleared
up. The original statement referred to home
money; the contradiction Is not spociflc, and
probably implies Eastern capital, which, I am
aware, has been placed here in small amounts
at the rate in question; but I think it would be
hard to point out more than two or three in
stances in which local capital was involved. It
is a very low rate, and Is accepted only in cases
where the security is undoubted. This speaks
well for the estimation in which real estate is
beld by capitalists, who are familiar with all
the conditions of the market. It is ridiculous
to suppose they would risk bo much if values
were abnormally inflated, or if the demands
were not in a measure adjusted to the supply."
"Any news to-day?" was the inquiry put to a
gentleman who came up at this moment, one who
dabbles in lands and houses, and knows about
all that is going on in that branch of trade.
"Nothing particular," he replied. "I jnst heard
a rumor ot a resale by principals of a business
property on Penn avenue at about SIO.000 ad,
vance over the price paid three months ago.
The movement in that direction seems to be
growing. I am dickering for a house and lot
on that avenue, and expect to get it. The cen
tral part of the city is overrun with business.
It must find an outlet somewhere, and Penn
avenue ought to catch the most of it."
Most of the talk was hopeful and buoyant
Confidence was generally expressed that the
depression caused by the dood had about run
its course. Said a Wood street broker: "It
was a terrible calamity. The material loss to
the community was great, but the gain will be
greater. It will give employment to labor and
put large amounts of money in circulation.
This will help every branch of business. Iron
is already firmer and in better demand, and
lnmber prices have been advanced. All the
immense loss will be made good eventually,
and this must necessarily make good times, in
which Pittsburg, from her nearness to the
scene of destruction, and also from her ability
to supply everything needed in the work of res
toration, will gather the lion's share."
"I believe," put in a railroad man, who for
merly lived in Johnstown, "that the improve
ment in real estate alone will pay the cost of
"On looking around," continued the first
speaker, "I can see nothing discouraging, but
much to make us hopeful, even sanguine. It
is hard to hold Americans down."
"You are right there," chimed in a gentle
man who has served a local constituency in the
Legislature. "You may put them down, but
they won't stay there. That has been proved
on many occasions. When the war broke out
the North was as helpless as a child. It had
neither army nor navy. But the people were
equal to the emergency. Armies were organ
ized and a navy was called into existence in a
short time. When the struggle ended we were
the greatest military power on earth. Chicago
is another case in point. The great fire there
would have paralyzed any community in the
Old World. But the citizens were equal to the
occasion. Instead of repining they went to
work to repair the damages. I have been told
that a number of contracts for now buildings
were made while the conflagration was still in
progress. Such pluck must succeed. It will
be the same in the flooded district. The van
ished towns will speedily reappear, and they
will be more attractive than before. We have
been pinched by several financial crises, but
they made only a temporary Impression.
Notbing short of a calamity involving the
whole country could put us on our backs and
keep us there."
Talk at the Exchange was less confident
Brokers were in a quandary as to the outlook
for stocks. They drew encouragement, how
ever, from the fact that, in spite of the prevail
ing dullness, prices are so well sustained. "We
are ready for anything that may come along,"
said a broker. "We are eating feathers now;
after a while we will come to chicken." Bids
and offers were hardly within telephone dis
tance, which led Captain 'Barbour to remark:
"When I can get the boys within a quarter or
an eighth of each other I can generally make
them do something, but when they are separ
ated by dollars and halves I feel less hopeful
than I do of the success of the prohibitory

Heavy Realizing Break the MnrketConl
ersi and Grangers Fnll to the Rear
The Trusts Neslected Almost
Everything Closes Lower
Nk-vt York, June 13. Tho stock market to
day was comparatively quiet; less than a dozen
stocks furnishing about seven-eighths of the
entire bplncss done. The temper of tho deal
ings was reactionary throughout tbe day, and
while the final changes are generally insignifi
cant, they are in all but a few instances in tho
direction of lower figures. The buying in gen
eral was good and the feeling was rather bull
ish, but tbe realizing tendency was uppermost
for the time being, and the offerings of stock
were sufficient to sag the list off slowly.
The only stock showing any real animation
was New England, in which there was markod
speculative buying, though, as usual with tho
deals in that stock, the street is somewhat mys
tified by the movement. There was a spurt of
over 10 per cent in the price of New Haven
from its last recorded sale, and it touched 265,
which was said to be on the passage ot tbe
bill in the Connecticut Legislature permitting
the road to increase its capital stock, which
was interpreted in some quarters as equivalent
to permission to purchase New England. But
aside from that, the ncjtvs of the day in regard
to the latter road was very favorable. The
stock moved up steadily and rose over 3 per
cent, finally closing at tbe best figure.
The Coalers were much less prominent In
the market than of late. The same may bo
said of tbe Grangers. The news from tbe West
was of a neutral character, and the operators
in those stocks seem to be waiting. There
were no marked movements in the low-priced
shares, and the trusts with the exception of
lead were quiet. The selling in Lead Trust
was very marked, and the price was forced
about 1 per cent. The opening was quiet and
firm, but tbe realizations with some help from
tbe bears imparted a reactionary tone to the
dealings immediately, and while the Chicago
Gas showed any marked weakness and New
England and Big Four were strong, tho list
slowly sagged off from the first prices and re
mained below them throughout the day.
Jersey Central and Sugar Trusts later led the
decline, but the movements were generally for
insignificant fractions. New England contin
ued to rise steadily and acted as a check upon
tbe decline In the rest of the list, and toward
tbe close there was a somewhat better tone de
veloped in the general list, but the early losses
PREDAT, JUNE 14.
were not recovered and the market at the close
was still barely steadyat fractional declines for
tbe day. Tbe final changes are generally In the
direotfon of lower figures, but tho only Im
portant difference is In New Encland, which is
"ESi per cent.
The dealings in railroad bonds were compara
tively large, reaching $2,153,000, but as in shares
a few issues furnished the greater portion of
the business. Richmond and Allegheny sec
onds contributed $235,000; Denver and Rio
Grande fives, $149,000; Atlantic and Pacific
fours, $156,000, and Denver and Rio Grande
fours, $110,000 to the grand total. There was.
however, more decided strength to the market
than during the past few days, and the propor
tion of important advances increased. .Minne

LATE HEWS IN BRIEF.
The Canadian Order of Odd Fellows now in
session voted down a motion to provide for the
eligibility of colored men for membership In
The law tncreaslng the liquor tax In Dakota
is now in force. Tbe retail liquor license has'
heretofore been $300 "per annum. Under the
new law the lowest tax that can be imposed Is
$800, and may be placed as high as $1,600, at the
option of the County Commissioners. There
are 25 saloons in Yankton, and after Julyl
..there will probably not be more than five.
A oollislon between two freight trains
near Havre de Grace, on the Philadelphia di
vision of the Baltimore and Ohio road yester
day, resulted in instantly killing Joseph Mc
Mean and wrecking several cars, two of them
loaded with provisions for Johnstown sufferers.
It is claimed by tbe train hands that the tele
graph operator was at fault in giving wrong
An attempt was made Wednesday night to
wreck tbe St. Lonls and Pacific vestibule train
whicb left Chicago at S o'clock for St. Lonis..
Tbe scene of tbe dastardly act was a culvert at
a point about 65 miles from Chicago. Ties were
wedged in the culvert in such a manner that
they stood half a foot above tbe track between
the rails. The engine struck the obstruction
but did jftt leave the rails, and beyond the
damage to the track no harm was done.
The President yesterday made the follow
ing appointment: Mark D. Fowler, of Minne
sota, to be supervising Inspector of steam ves
sels for the jFifth district, St. Paul. Minn. Mr.
Fowler succeeds George Hays, removed. He
is a veteran of tbe war and Is an old steamboat
captain. He held the office for six years and
was the first officer ot the steamboat Inspection
service removed by President Cleveland. He
is a personal friend of Secretary Windom.
-James Deavin and Charles Tomavson were
lynched at Corydon, Ind., yesterday morning.
They were taken from the jail there by a mob
of 200 men and removed to the bridge west of
town, where an effort to make them confess
failed, and they were strung up. The two men
attempted to rob tbe residence of James Le
May, near there, Friday night last. LeMay re
sisted and was shot, but not fatally wounded.
A young womarL a niece of Mr. LeMay, was
also seriously injured by a bullet.
The steamer City of Peking arrived yester
day from Hong Kong via Vokohoma. The
Shanahat Courier of MavlO contains news
which the latter received from a correspond
ent at Chang King to tbe effect that Lu Chow,
a city of some importance in Upper Pangtsze,
was reported as being nearly destroyed bv fire
a month previous. Seven out of the eight
gates of the city are said to have been de
stroyed, and the loss of life, burned and
trampled to death, is estimated at 10,000.
The steamer Alene, from Kingston. Jamai
ca, June 6, brings Intelligence substantiating
the London cable reports of Hippolyte'a vic
tory and Legltime's deteat. Chief Officer Will
iams of the Alene said that Legitime had
sought the protection of the American consul
at Port au Prince Hippolyte's officers bad en
tered Fort au Prince and taken possession of
the town. The victorious warrior, however,
Mr. Williams said, was not popular with the
people generally and could probably never be
President of tbe Black Republic by the vote of
tbe inhabitants. A man named Marrann,
Legitime'a Minister of Foreign Affairs, or an
ex -President of tbe Republic, whose name Mr.
Williams could not recall, would doubtless ap
pear as the next candidate tor the presidency
