MONDAY. Juno 17, 1SS9. j
There were few encouraging features in
the markets. Supplies were heavy and de
mand was light. It was difficult to find an
optimistic drover at Herr's Island. All re
ported bard markets. The situation was entire
ly in buyers' favor In all departments.
Drovers report a difficulty gettinE their own
out of Chicago cattle. A small margin Is left
for such stock as is adapted to .our markets,
vir, smooth, light butcher cattle; hut for those
of other grades there has been a loss to the
dealer this w eck. The cattle dealer who comes
out even on this week's transactions has done
well. Some report losses.
Weather has been adverse to trade, and Chi
cago cattle dealers are too high In their ideas
for any profits in this market. There were
barely sufficient sales to establish last week's
range of prices.
A Diamond Market butcher reports pur
chases of a head.weighing 1.150 to 1,275, at J4 25,
for which S4 40 would have been the price a
week ago. Three of those bought were held
over from last week, and SI SO was then offered
and refused for them. Choice heavy beeves
weighing 1.500 to 1,600 pounds are quoted at
$4 80 to $1 90; medium weights. 1,200 to 1,400,
S4 55 to $170; prime light weights, 900 to 1,100.
S3 95 to $4 25; common to fair thin and rough
steers, S3 20 to $3 50. Fresh cows were in the
usual supply and demand: prices, 22 00 to
S3S 00 per head. The best milkers were held
at $15 00. Calves were slow at a range of 3c to
4c per pound. Bulls and dry cows, Sc to 3c
per pound. Receipts from Chicago Winter fc

The Edgar Thomson Steel Works turned
out their largest run of rails on Friday, the
14th. The total product of steel rails for that
day was L035 tons. This product was placed on
ilonongahela river barges ready for shipment
westward on Saturday. There is only one
plant in the world that has greater capacity for
steel rails than that at Braddock. At Barrow
in the North of England a single company has
14 furnaces. At Braddock are seven with two
new furnaces started, one of which will be in
ope -ation before the year is out. The seven in
op.-ration turn oat more product to thef urnace
than those in Barrow. When the Edgar
Thomson was built it was the aim of the com
pany to lay the foundations for a capacity not
g? -i ter than 50.000 tons annually. But the pre
caution was taken to have machinery more
thi equal to this output.
Hist year the output was not less than 90,000
toss, and It is plain that -when more than LO0U
tons of steel rails are turned out in a single day,
this year's record will go far beyond that of last
year. When the two new furnaces, with a ca
pacity of 235 tons daily, are completed tho
Edgar Thomson will come up very close to the
world's greatest plant In volume of output.
The present price of steel rails is S27 50. and
while these figures do not bring the owners the
handsome prohts of 1882, when the price was
SS0 or more, there is still a comfortable margin
left. A well posted operator in steel expresses
the opinion that steel rails can bemadeat Brad
dock for S20 per ton or less. There is little use
in small plants trying to compete with such a
mammoth institution as the Edgar Thomson
in this da? of narrow margins.

Chicago. A large speculative business
was again transacted In wheat to-day.
with higher prices and an unsettled, nervous
feeling. There was considerable realizing, and
the outside prices were not sustained; in fact,
the closing was considerably lower than Satur
day. The opening was very strong, and prices
showed an advance of lc for tho various
futures, but after some slight fluctuations be
came weak, and a decline of 2c was recorded
for July and IKc for other deliveries, closing
5c lower for July. 5c lower for August, :
lower for September, and c lower for Decem
ber than closing figures of Saturday.
The early advance was attributed to the same
causes which have affected the market the
past few days, namely, wet weather In the
winter wheat districts and dry in the North
west. Storms In Ohio and Indiana were re
ported as having done damage to wheat.
Shorts covered quite freely, and the demand
was principally from this source. The ad
vance, however, induced longs to sell freely,
and there was quite heavy realiiing. Some
large lines were closed out This created an
easier feeling. Then advices were received re
porting a break of 10c ih caslf at St. Louis.
Cables also were less favorable to holders.
The weather bulletin, too, showed light rain at
Bismarck. This assisted the tendency to lower
Corn ruled quiet and inactive the greater
part of tho session. The fluctuations were
within narrow limits and trading confined al
most exclusively to room operators. The feel
ing early was comparatively firm, due largely
to the stronger tone of wheat, but later ruled
easier, influenced by very fair estimates for to
morrow. Oats were fairly active and K&c higher.
Tho advance brought in liberal selling orders,
and a quieter and weaker feeling developed
and all the early advance was lost, the market
closing at slightly below the prices of Satur
day. A little more life was manifested in the mar
ket for mess pork, and the feeling was stronger.
Prices were advanced 1012c, but settled
back again 57c and closed steady.
The market for lard attracted very little at
tention. Prices exhibited very little change.
Trading was only moderately active in the'
market for short rib sides. The feeling was
firmer and prices favored sellers.

STORY OP A JOHNSTOWN DOGi
The American Cliurn laid in the Shade
dj a South American Invention.
BEOKEES PUT tiP ON THE ELECTION.
The day upon which general elections are
held are legal holidays in New York and
some other States, but not in Pennsylvania.
An attempt was made in the Legislature
last winter to enact such a law, but it failed.
The Exchange and banks will transact busi
ness as nsnal to-day.
Pittsburg is again below St. Louis and
San Francisco in the matter of bank clear
ings. I called the attention of a "Wood
street cashier to this circumstance yester
day. He said: "I am not surprised. The
calamity through which we are passing ac
counts for it. They have had nothing to
interrupt their prosperity. They will not
remain above us very long. We have been
gaining on them for several years, and the time
has about arrived when we will take prece
dence of them permanently. Wo would have
passed St. Louis long ago had it not been for
her large speculative interest."
Mr. Hampton Houghton, of the Pennsylvania
Railroad, told me of an incident that occurred
at Johnstown on Tuesday, which is worth re
peating. The big dynamite explosion there in
the afternoon of that day, forced open the door
of one of the wrecked houses, releasing a large
black dog, which bad been imprisoned for near
ly two weeks. He at once scampered off to the
hills, but was pursued and captured by two
boys. A lively compctiiton for his possession
as a relic of the flood immediately sprung up.
One man bid So, another S10 and another S25
all of which the youngsters refused. A Pitts
burg man named Bums then offered $50, which
was accepted and the dog was turned over to
him. He was very thin, as a result of his long
fast, bnt soon domonstratod his ability and
willingness to make up for lost.time.
1 saw awoman manipulating an old-fashioned
churn in one of the subnrbs a few days ago.
It was hard work, and she frequently stopped
to note the result of her labor and to ascertain
if the butter had "come." This reminded rao
of the statement of a traveler In South Amer
ica, to tne effect that the dairyman of that
country pours the milk, warm from the cow,
into an inflated pig or goat skin, hitches It to
his saddle by a long lasso and gallops five or
six miles into town with the milk sack pound
ing along on the road behind him. When he
reaches the city his churning is over, the butter
is made and be peddles it from door to door,
dipping out the quantity desired by each family
with a long wooden spoon. This is a labor
saving invention worthy of a Yankee.
In the absence of business at the Stock Ex
change yesterday, there was considerable talk
regarding the outcome of to-day's election.
Both sides were represented among the brokers
and each' faction seemed willing to back up
their opinions with hard cash. As a result of
the disputation several wagers were made,
the largest being $50 on 40,000 against the
amendment. 1 was told that a prominent Pro
hibitionist in the city had several hundred dol
lars that he was willing to risk on the same
I noticed yesterday that work on the four
new bank buildings those of the National
Bank of Commerce, the German National, the
Keystone and the Marine is progressing as
fast as possible, considering the heavy work
and the unfavorable state of the weather. The
foundations of the two first named are well un
der way. Each will be of stone, eight stories
high and highly finished inside and out. The
other two will be scarcely less imposing and
ornate. AJ1 of them will be creditable to the
city and add materially to its architectural
beauty in the eyes of citizens and strangers.
I see that Sheriff McCandless has made a con
tribution to the business literature of the day.
It is a plain statement of legal involvements,
of special interest only to the characters intro
duced, not likely to make much of an impres
sion upon the reading public. The rapid sub
sidence of the popularity of literary produc
tions of this kind is conclusive proof of an im
provement in the taste and circumstances of

Stocks Begin tho Week Without a Chnnjro
for the Better.
Tho stock marcet yesterday was of the list
less sort with which the Pittsburg public has
become familiar within the past few
weeks. Three stocks were traded In to the
amount of 270 shares, Philadelphia Gas sold
in the morning at 36 and 36. In the after
noon it went in a small way at 36. The weak
ness was attributed to a tip that the next divi
dend wonld be at the rate of 8 per cent per
annum. Pittsburg Traction brought 52 and
Citizens' 69. Pleasant Valley Passenger Rail
way could have been bought for 200, and Pitts
burg, Allegheny and Manchester for 260. There
was a bid of 17 for People's Natural Gas and
Pipeage Company. Nothing was done in Elec
tric The best bid for it was 60; it was held
at 63J and 53J. La Noria was steady at 1.
which price was offered for 100 shares buyer 30.
It was thought that the proposed new deal of
Westinghouse .Electric Company, notice of
which has been sent to the stockholders, imply
ing, as supposed, a consolidation of all the
electrical interests ot the company, if carried
out, would result in giving the stock a boom.
The firmness with which it has been held under
conditions considered discouraging" by out
siders, may have come from a knowledge by
holders of Jarge blocKS of tho proposed con
solidation of interests and management, in
creasing the revenue and cutting down ex
penses. Bids, offers and sales follow: -

was entirely professional. It opened at 83, K

Rumored Brenk In the Inter-Stnte Railway
Association Cansts a Slump In tho
Graneer Stocks Part of tho
Enrly Losses Recovered.
New York, Juno 17. The stock market was
fairly active to-day. with a still greater propor
tion of business done in the regular list than
has been seen for months, the trusts, with
the exception of National Lead, being quiet to
dull without feature. The heavy withdrawal
of gold for export to Europe on Saturday was
supplemented by the news late In the day of
the withdrawal of the Chicago and Alton from
the Inter-State Railway Association, and this
morning we were treated to the information
that the action would in all probability disrupt
the association, and other news of a discourag
As a consequence tho Granger stocks were
mdde the subjects of great pressure to sell, es-
Eccially from the smaller class of traders, and
efore the end of the first half hour's business
the declines, especially in Rock Island and St.
Paul, were extended to nearly 2 per cent. The
effect upon the general list was very marked,
and every stock traded in opened off fraction
ally, though outside of the Grangers only Mis
souri Pacific showed any marked decline. The
buying, however, was of a good quality and the
Cliques supporieu ineir iavonics wniie Lonaon
was a buyer to a limited extent, and commis
sion people were purchasing cautiously. Chica
go sold the Grangers freely on the- situation,
and the stocks of that group dropped mate
rially. After the first hour, however, there
was a check to the decline in the general list
and the excitement died out and the market re
lapsed Into dullness except for the few leading
The signing of the bill giving -the New En
gland terminal facilities in New York started
that stock up rapidly, followed by St. Paul,
though the improvement m the last named was
smaller soon came to an end. Later, however,
Atchison joined in the upward movement, and
toward delivery hour there was a sudden spurt
in the coalers which infused strength in the en
tire list. Jersey Central and Delaware and
Hudson were most conspicuous for strength,
but Reading was not far behind, and the trad
ing m the last named stocks became very
heavy. The market finally closed quiet but de
cidedly strong at the best prices ot the day for
almost everything, except the Grangers. The
final changes aro somewhat irregular, but the
advances are most numerous, and whilo St.
Paul and Rock Island each closed per cent
lower than on Saturday, New England and
Jersey Central are each up 1, and Delaware
and Hudson 1 per cent.
Railroad bonds showed no change in their
temper from that of the past week, and the
market was fairly active, with a firm tone,
which, however, permitted considerable irreg
ularity in the movements which occurred. The
total sales for the day were 51,651,000, of which
only the Kansas and Texas general 6s showed
any special animation, furnishing $229,000. St.
Paul, Hamilton and Dayton 7s rose 2, to 129;
Kentucky Central 4s to 86; Minneapolis and
St. Louis lsts 8, to 10O.

DISOEDERS OF THE STOMACH.
This disease seems to affect nearly the en
tire human family. It affects persons indif
ferent ways. Dyspepsia is simply indiges
tion, or want of power to convert food into
chyle, from which the blood is mainly de
rived. The process of digestion may he
more or less obstructed for years by'iin-"
proper food, want of exercise, overwork,
care, depression and other causes, before
the marked symptoms of the disease mani
fest themselves. At length follow the ir
regular appetite, discomfort before or after
eatin?, rising of food, eructations, gastric
irritability, costiveness or diarrhoea, pain'
in the chest, pains in tbe limbs, pains in
the head, restlessness, loss of flesh, de
bility, mental depression, palpitation,
dizziness, suffocation and nearly every
discomfort known to mortals. The
cause not being known or suspected, the
sufferer is doctored for symptoms by this,
that, and the other medicine, till, dying a
thousand miserable deaths by the disease
and drugs, he finally looks for "no relief and
give3 up to a miserable existence. Such,
being the nature of this disease and so per
sistent and serious in its effects upon both
body and mind, how essential that one
skilled in the treatment of it should be,
sought at once and have the disease thor
oughly eradicated and the system restored
to health, which can be done by the power
ful common sense treatment as practiced by
Dr. "Woods. Ho charge for advice.
