VIANDS FOR TABLE.
Eetail Price of filling for Saturday's
FRUIT AND VEGETABLES ABE DOWK
Meats, Fish, Butter, Ecss and Poultry
Steady at Old Bate.
A QUIET WEEK IX FLOKISTS' GOODS
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch, l
ut iL Feiday. June 14, 183. J
Diamond-market dealers do not report a
very active trade this week, but the reverse.
The constant downpours hare had a
dampening effect on trade in market
basket materials all along the line.
Butchers complain that close, damp weather
spoils enough stuff to wipe out profits.
Of the new things that nave appeared" in the
fruit and vegetable stalls for the first time this
neek, are sweet cherries, red raspberries and
carrots. Trices of fruit aud vegetables
are steadily drifting to a lower level. Home
crown strawberries are now at their best
and will continue so through another week.
Alter next Saturday the season will be prac
tically over. Red raspberries from Maryland
begin to show op, but sell in a wholesale n ay at
20c a quart. Xew potatoes are in full supply
at Ioh er prices than a week ago. In the line of
butter, eggs and poultry there are no changes.
Country butter is in supply beyond demand,
aud the drift is toward lower prices. Creamery
in job lots is Jc off this week, but retail prices
remain as belore.
There lias been some difficulty getting fish
from Eastern markets since the Pennsylvania
llailioaa failed to come to time. Shipments
have been by way of Buffalo to this city for a
vcek or two past and stock has not been in as
good shape as it generally is, by reason of its
long journevs and delays. This trouble is now
virtually past Adams Express has resumed
operations and since Wednesday manages to
get stuff from the seashore through to this
point in good time.
Florists report that their trade is little good.
Continuous wet weather and the calamities
which have befallen our neighbors have served
to upset many plans of social festivity and the
effect is felt by florists. June is usually one of
the best months in this line. Thepresent U ex
ceptionally quiet June roses are in full sup
fily, but demand is uncomfortably slow. Fol
owingare the latest retail prices of market
basket filling, as furnished by leading dealers:
The prices called for at the Diamond Markets
remain unchanged. The best cuts of tenderloin

Unfavorable Ycalher for Harvesting Buoys
Vp the Wheat Market All the Op

Featureless The nog
Chicago A bullish feeling again existed in
wheat, and prices reached a higher range.
Trading was active in a speculative way, both
on outside and local account, with shorts cover
ing, and a good investment buying also report
ed. June was advanced lc, and closed Ic
higher than yesterday. July opened a shade
better than yesterday's closing, advanced lc
above Inside figures, ruled steady, and closed
m! higher than yesterday. August and Sep
tember closed Jlc higher, and December
closed about Kc higher.
The conditions influencing the market were
about the same as noted the past few days, of
which unfavorable weather was the principal
factor. Rain was again reported where harvest
ing was in progress and where dry weather was
needed, and it is still dry in the Northwest
where rain would be of benefit to the crop.
Rainv weather in the winter wheat districts is
not alone liable to injure the wheat, but tenus
to retard the marketing of it European mar
ket advices were more favorable to holders.
But little interest was manifested in corn.
Transactions were confined principally to the
oDerations of room traders. The feeling on the
whole was comparatively firm, due largely to
the advance in wheat, but fluctuations were
narrow, being limited to yfc range
Oats were slow but a shade stronger, espec
ially on September. May w as easy, as opera
tors appeared more willing to sell than buy

market for mess pork. Trading was chiefly in
July and September deliveries. Prices de

There Is a question before the members of
Mil vale Lodge No. 132 A. O. U. W. which the
members are anxious to hare solved.
About two months ago a Mr. Craft was sus
pended from the lodge for non-payment of
dues. When word was sent to the headquar
ters of the Urand Lodge, telling of the
suspension, they were informed that Mr.
Craft had been sufpended in 1SS5,
and was never reinstated. Now. as Air.
Craft h.is paid in assessments In these five years
SbO, the whole wants to Know where this
money has gone, and why it was received by the
Grand Lodge if Mr. Craft was not a member.
The persons further said that had Mr. Craft
died in that period no benefits would have been
paid him, although he would have been justly
entitled to them. Tbev also want to know -a.hr.

An investigation win iaKe piace snortly, at
which time it is said some sensational develop

The person talked to by the reporter said the

FACTS AND FIGURES
Showing That Real Estate is in Better
Shape Than Last Tear.
BUILMUG HOUSES ON THE SAND.
A Yaluahle Wea From Windy Chicago and
a NoYel Invention at the "Hub. i
A CHANCE FOE PITTSBURG IRON KINGS
Facts and figures almost innumerable
might be cited to show that real estate is on
a better footing and in a more prosperous
condition than at the same time last year.
The following from a member of one of the
leading agencies on Fourth avenue is to the
'point Said he: "Our June sales to date
last year were 8; for the same time this year
they are 10. This is only a slight dinerence
but it shows an improvement. Our sales
for this year up to June aggregate $1,836,
000. For the same time last year tfiey were
about half as much."
In this connection he remarked: "Our
rent list this year is 150 per centlarger thari last(
year." xuis is encouraging. .
Houses, while not realty, are so closely
allied to it as to be almost inseparable, and a
diversion from one to the other is easily ac
complished. It is to be hoped that every
reader of The Dispatch is familiar wlthAhe
beautiful and impressive parable of our Lord
concerning the house" that was built upon the
sand. This folly, not literati ', but in principle,
seems to have been the cause of much of the
property loss at Johnstown. According to a
gentleman. who formerly lived there, very few
of the buildings washed away had good founda
tions. "This is a fact," said he yesterday,
"which should be borne in mind In re
building. The same fault I have ob
served, prevails to a considerable ex
tent in Pittsburg. I have seen expensive
houses reared upon foundation walls that were
not substantial enough for a stable. This is
not only poor economy, but it is dangerous.
Reports of buildings tumbling down and
crushing the inmates are not infrequent This
could not happen if the substructure were
solid. It is the fault of the time rather than of
the builders, but in either case it is trifling with
life, which should not be longer tolerated."
Going back to real estate again, it may be
observed that Pittsburg people are wise in
everything relating to the material Interests of
the country. There may be no dazzling literary
genius among them, no great composer or
Senator, no orator or jurist of world-wide fame,
but in the practical concerns of life, in the art
of solving knotty questions in mechanics, of
managing interests involving millions of dol
lars, of restraining and utilizing electricity and.
natural gas, and in the development of the re
sources of nature, they possess power and prac
ticability beyond any other commnnity in the
new or the Old World. And yet they don't
know everything. "A wise man may learn of
fools," was the conclusion of an eighteenth
cenrury philosopher. What Pittsburg people
don't know they are anxious to learn. In the
matter of subdividing land and making it ready
for the market they are following the custom
of a century ago.
Our real estate men are progressive, but they
are wedded to a custom that is better in the
breach than the observance. They survey the
land, stake off the lots, and offer them for sale.
The purchaser has to do all the cleaning, grad
ing, road-making and everything else neces
sary to make the place fit for habitation.
There are exceptions, of course, but this is the
rule. It is neither jufttothe purchaser nor
creditable to the seller. Land under such cir
cumstances seldom brings the full market
value. In Chicago before land is offered for
sale it is put in proper condition. In Philadel
phia the same practice is observed. The con
sequence is that good prices are realized. It
saves the purchaser time and trouble. The
general adoption of this plan in Pittsburg could
not but prove beneficial.
Having found something in Chicago that may
be of service to a large class of our citizens, it
may not be out of place to note that Boston is
happy over an invention of no ordinary impor
tance. It is called the "electric service system
for the automatic regulation of heat," and is
peculiarly applicable to office and apartment
buildings, which are becoming popular in
Pittsburg. It has just been placed in one of
these establishments, where a thorough test
will be made. t
The heat will be under electrical control and
every tenant can have the temperature he de
sires without paying any more attention to the
matter than he would to the running of the
furnace or the boiler. Thus, in two adjoining
rooms, where a consumptive in ono wants a
temperature of 90 and a f ullblooded fellow in
the other wishes only 60, each gets just what
he desires. The engineer in the engine room
can tell whether any room is too cold and can
instantly send additional steam into the office
whose thermostat placed before him reveals
the necessity. The landlord saves from 25 to 40
per cent on f nel and the tenant escapes severe
colds and general discomfort If a new tenant
comes in he merely notifies the engineer of his
individual tastes, and the heat is regulated ac
cordingly. Turn we now to something more substantial.
The substitution of iron for brick and mortar in
house construction is among the probabilities,
and is, therefore, of paramount importance to
Pittsburg. It overshadows the Boston novelty
and lays the Chicago idea completely in the
shade. There is, of course, nothing new in the
idea, but the fact that it is beginning to strike
the public fancy gives it importance. England
is talcing the lead in this important innovation.
A Liverpool paper, the Journal of Commerce,
"Of late a great step has been taken in bring
ing iron prominently in use for house con
struction, and for such purposes as farm out
buildings, stables, shooting boxes, lodges, cot
tages, and small honses it is without doubt the
material -par excellence. We lately inspected
the works bf Messrs. Brnce & Still, of Liver
pool, who are probably the largest manufac
turers and dealers in the kingdom. They are
constructing iron houses for almost every pur
pose, and from a billiard room to a shooting
box, and have orders from all parts of the
world. Thev have on order some Iron-buildings
which are highly artistic in design and
wonderfully cheap. As an instance we may
mention that a billiard roomf for which a Lon
don house songht to charge 50, Messrs. Bruce
4 Still can supply at 26 103. Aotber advant
age of iron as a material for house construc
tion is that it offers almost a'tuolfitc security
against lightning, a point of no mean import
ance." The attention of Pittsburg iron manufactur
ers is called to the above statement.
STOCKS WAKING UP.
A Ppnrt In La Noria Caused by Tip From
La Noria was the'attraction at the Stock Ex
change yesterday, being both 'active and
stronger. 300 shares selling in the forenoon at
. The same price was offered for it in the
afternoon, but it was held a fraction higher.
The improvement wasattributed to inside news
that the mill was grinning out mgneyatthe
rate of S400 or J500 a da, which would be veri
fied by the next report which is expected early
in July. Philadelphia Gas sold in the forenoon
at 37, but weakened a trifle later in the day,
going in a small way at 36 The tractions
showed no particular change. Central bringing
sai for 50 shares. Electric was weaker, selling
at 53K. The rest of the list was about where
it bad been all week. Bids and offers were
closer together than usual of late, and there
were more buying orders, but being, as a rule,
below the market, very little effort was made
to fill them. The day's bnsiness is noted below:

per cent, but the ruling rate was 6. Checking

Oil moves In the Direction ot a Lower
The oil market opened yesterday with a weak
pulse at 83, H below the close of Wednesday,
and gradually slumped off with a sale at So,
from which point it reacted and held around
83 and 83, with a sale just before the close at
83 The next sale, a minute later, was at 83.
The market then weakened and closed at S&.
There wero no special features, and business
was light The Exchange adopted, by a vote
ot 73 to 23,. nine more than the requisite two

Aecoant A Rally at the
' Close, Which Averts
Mnterlnl Losses. -
New Yore, June 14. The stock market de
vtloped somewhat more animation .to-day,
although it was almost entirely confined to less
than a half dozen stocks. There was Consider
able irregularity throughout the day! but the
general drift of prices was' downward, and
SATUEDAT, JUNE 15.
some material losses were sustained. The
news from the West this morning was unfavor
able, the principal point being the rerusal of
the Lake Superior lines to accept the proposi
tion of the Chicago lines.but this was seconded
by other depressing advices, and before the
opening or the board it was known that nearly
$4,000,000 more gold had been taken for export,
and the feeling ,ati the opening was bearish in
the extreme among the traders. Opening
prices were lower, and declines extended to K
per cent in most stocks, while Jersey Central
was off l per cent at Ho. The market was
feyerish and quite irregular, but the pressure
brought by the bears, with thp undoubted sell
ing for the long account, made further losses
in the first hour.
New England was amarked!exceptlon and af
ter a slight decline rose over 1 per cent St
Paul weakened under the news from the West
but while it was active the concessions made
were small, and Jenev Central alter the de
cline at the opening wis fairly well held for the
remainder of the dav, though Delaware and
Hudson reacted sharply. Sugar Trusts and
New England then dropped.and fn.most of the
general list the lowest prices of he day were
reached toward noon. Atchison was taken in
hand and under excellent buying it advanced 2
per cent above its lowest Union Pacific 'also,
showed marked strength, followed by Oregon
Short Line, but the improvement could not be
maintained, and New England dropped rapid
ly from its bigh figures. While considerable
pressure was brought against Reading, though
little impression was made upon the latter
stock. Ihe downward movement was most
pronounced toward delivery hour, but later the
advices from Chicago were more encouraging
and the shorts went to cover, which lifted
prices in the last half hour, and the market
closed at the rtlly with a firm tone, though
close to the lowest prices. The active list is
generally lower, St. Paul and Burlington lost
IK per cent each, and Jersey Central 1 per
Railroad bonds do not sympathize with stocks
in their depression, but the dealln gs were on a
smaller scale than usual of late and the fluc
tuations were small and unimportant as a rule.
The sale or all issues reached $1,668,000. Kan
sas and Texas contributed $121,000 and the.6
$103,000. The tone was generally firm, but
there were some marked declines at the close.
St Louis and Cairo 4s rose 4, to 80; St Louis
and Chicago consols to 41; Chicago and Alton
sinking fund 6s lost 2, at 124.
