THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, "WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 1889.
FLOODS AND TRADE.
Effects of a Calamity Upon General
Prodnce Business.
A YEEI POOR PROVISION MARKET.
Chicago a Good Place Both to Bay and Sell
Hog Prodncts.
AN OPTIMISTIC TIEW OP THE FUTURE
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch, 1
TUESDAY, June 18, 18S9. J
While the wash-outs along the Pennsyl
vania Kailroad have shut out some sections
very valuable to Pittsburg's jobbing trade,
a very extensive trade has been developed
in some lines in the way of relief for
sufferers. A representative of the canned
meat industry reports unprecedented sales in
hislmetothe Johnstown Belief Committee.
The total sold by our firm." said he, "was
1,500 cases of corned beet and besides this, two
carloads of dressed beef."
The Relief Committee cleaned us out of our
stock, and we hare not been as bare for years
at this season as we are now."
A leading cheese jobber talked in the same
strain. Said he: "We shipped 200 boxes of
cheese yesterday to Johnstown by order of the
Relief Committee, and this is but little more
than one-fourth the total amount we have sold
to that committee. On the Sunday following
the flood we sent out a lot, and the aggregate
is now little below 600 boxes which went from
our warehouse to the Conemangh Valley in
response to orders from the committee which
bandies the benevolent offerings of Pittsburg."
Provision Markets.
An illustration of the fact recently noted in
this column that Pittsburg has been a poor
provision market of late, as compared with
Chicago, was given to-day by one of our job
bers. Said he: "A short time ago I ordered 500
tierces of hams in pickle from Chicago tor July
delivery. The cost there was lOJc, and to
bring them here and smoke them would have
brought their native cost up to llJic All that
1 can get for these hams here at present prices
Is HKc. As this would entail a loss of lie on
top of time and trouble, I made an effort to sell
the goods in Chicago, and succeeded in dispos
ing of them to the firm with which I had made
the contract. The firm was entirely willing,
and I managed to come out better than even,
which I could not have done if I had brought
my pickled hams to this city."
One of our leading pork packers reported
that he had sold recently in Chicago 230 tierces
of sweet pickled hams at a rate which netted
mm ic more man ne couia nave realized lor
the same in this city. Tlio same packer said:
"I have been able to do better by buying hogs
in Chicago than at East Liberty all the past
season with the exception of a very few days
when markets here were overstocked, and now
it seems 1 can sell there at better figures than
here In certain lines of onr products."
An Optimistic Tien-.
The Boston Congrcgalionaltst, in Its current
cumber, contains an article on the business
situation of the country of a very optimistic
cast, and furnishes facts and figures which
give, apparently, good reasons for the writer's
faith and hope. The article states that for the
first five months of the year 1SS9, the exchanges
of 40 leading cities in the country show an in
crease of 14 per cent over the corresponding
period of 1888, and a slight increase over 1887,
which was a year of extraordinary activity.
The transactions this year are claimed to be
on a more substantial basis than for a number
of years past, as there has been much less
(peculation in stocks, oil and grain.
Another fact upon which the Congregation
alUt bases its faith in the optimistic view o"
trade is, that while there is a 14 per cent in
crease over last j ear and 15 per cent over 18S6,
transactions this year have been at lower aver
age prices, showing that the percentage of in
crease is in fact much greater than the figures
actually show.
The croaker who can see nothing bright in
the trade situation can hardly fail to have bis
backbone stiffened by a perusal of the article
referred to above.

AEISTOCEATIC DEALEES.
They Are Forming a Liquor Dealers' Trust
In Jersey City.
rSFECIAL TELIGSAU TO TUX PISPATCB.l
New TOBK,"June 18. The Hudson
County Liquor Dealers' Association will, it
is said, use the Jersey City Board of Alder
men to compel dealers who are not mem
bers of the association to join at once or
else get out of the business. Only about
one-third of the dealers iu Jersey City are
members of the association, and many of the
non-members refuse to conform with the
schedule of prices fixed by the association
for growler beer and ale and solt drinks.
The association decided to ask the Excise
Committee of the Board of Aldermen not to
grant a license to any dealer not in the as
sociation, and it was reported -to-day on ex
cellent authority, that the committee had
practically agreed to do it.
The association has agreed that no one
shall be admitted to the association or per
mitted to apply for a license who is not of
good moral character, and it also agrees
that every member of the association shall
keep the front door of his saloon closed and
locked on Sunday. It does not sav any
thing about side doors. Some of the non-member-
have decided to get into the asso
ciation at once, and they will apply for
membership at the next meeting. More,
however, hare decided to fight ltont

Chicago A good speculative business was
again transacted in wheat, and the course of
prices somewhat irregular. The opening was
rather steady, and prices were later advanced
KKc above yesterday's closing, then broke
off lljc recovered again, advancing Jic,
eased off and closed about c lower than yes
terday. August closed He lower, September
He lower, and December Jc lower. The early
strength was attributed to wet weather In the
South and Southwest, heavy storms and floods
doing damage to wheat in Kansas, and harvest
ing interfered with.
The quantity of wheat on ocean passage
showed a decrease of 752,000 bushels, and was
also taken as a strengthening feature. Later
the market became weak, and the decline
established under liberal speculative offerings,
some long wheat bought at the top prices of
yesterday coming in the market. Rain in the
Northwest, with some rain In the Red river
country, where moisture was badly needed, as
sisted the weakness some. Recovered some
again, but the feeling was unsettled to the
close. That there are sections suffering from
too much rain at the present there is no doubt,
and the variable character of the Influences
created an irregular market.
But little interest was manifested in corn
during the early part of the day, but as the ses
sion advanced trading became more active.
The feeling developed was relatively firmer,
and transactions were at slightly higher prices.
Initial trades were a shade higher than the
closing prices of yesterday, was steady and in
active sometimes, when a better demand sprang
up. one house taking 250.000 bushels of July,
which started shorts and the market advanced
Kc offerings at the time being limited. The
market then eased off a little and closing
prices were full Kc higher than yesterday.
Trading was lighter.in oats, and the market
quiet and easy during the early part of the ses
sion. Toward the close a firmer feeling devel
oped, especially for July, due to the reports of
heavy rains In oat fields in sections were it was
not needed. Offerings were light, and the de
mand from a few nervous shorts helped to ad
vance prices lAc, and the close was steady
at about outside figures.
Trading was fairly active In mess pork early
in the day. but ruled quiet during the latter
part of the session. Opening sales were made
at 2c advance and a further appreciation of
5c was gained. Later the market ruled easier,
and prices receded 1012c, but rallied again
sligbtlv and closed steady at Inside figures.
A comparatively light business was transacted
in the lard market A little demand early
caused a steadier feeling and prices ruled a
trifle higher, but a weaker feeling was devel
oped later and the market closed rather tame
at inside figures.
Trading was moderately active in the market
for short rib sides. Demand was fairly active
e.irlv nnd urines were advanced 2CSlbc Later
an easier feeling prevailed and prices declined
57c. Toward the close the feeling was
steady and the market closed quiet at inside
figures.

SALES ON THE SLY.
Important Deals in Eealty That Fail
to Meet the Public Eye.
SOMETHING DONE IN ALLEGHENY.
Apartment Houses and the Condition of the
rublic Park Question.
BEOKEES HDKGEI FOE ELECTION NEWS
Ex-Mayor Henry A. Weaver, who handles
large properties exclusively, told me yester
day that he knew of several important
transactions of recent date that had been
withheld from publication at the request of
the principals. He added:
"I have made three or four deals about
which I was requested to keep quiet. One
was for $35,000 and another for a trifle less,
but as the pledge of secrecy has not been re
voked I am not at liberty to go into details.
This goes to show that there is a large move
ment In real estate that does not appear upon
the surface, and perhaps never will."
"
Another real estate .dealer whose office is
within pistol shot of .that of Mr. Weaver, said
he had just heard from a reliable source of two
transactions in Allegheny, both residence prop
erties, one belnglocated on North avenue and
the other on Lincoln avenue Both locations
being gilt-edged the prices realized were pretty
steep.
There was another rumor, but less definite
than the above, of the sale of a fine residence
on Ridge avenue.
While rumors, in most cases, are to be ac
cepted with caution, they serve a good purpose
in business as in politics by showing which way
the wind blows.
The Johnson and the Blair estates constitute
a large slice of the Twenty-third ward. A part
of the latter has been subdivided and put on
the market by Samuel W. Black & Co. The first
sale took place on Monday. Four lots were sold
at good prices. This district is fast coming into
public favor. It possesses both city and country
advantages, and will have an electric railroad
before the end of the year. I am told that the
rest of the estate will be laid out in lots as soon
as those now on the market are disposed of.
The Twenty-third ward is one of the particu
larly bright spots of the city, and is fast filling
up with a good class of people.
"How is Oakland coming up 7" I asked a
gentleman who has property interests in that
district. He looked at me as if he thought I
ought to know all about it, and replied:
"We are in the swim not the soup and
there are no flies on us. Property is going off
like hot cakes. Sales are made almost every
day. The certainty of rapid transit has given
us such a boom as but few other sections of the
city have experienced. If you Know of any
person who wants a glimpse of Paradise, send
him out to Oaklsnd."
The last remark should be accepted in a
modified sense, but it is a recognized fact, test
tlmony to the truth of which has been borne by
many distinguished foreigners, that the suburbs
of Pittsburg are among the most beautiful in
the world, and of these Oakland is one of the
filieSt. -b-r;
A representative of the firm of Black t
Baird returned yesterday from a trip to Cleve
land, where he inspected several of the apart
ment houses for which that city is becoming
noted. I asked him what the people thought
of them, and he replied: ' v
"They are so popular that there is nofaVa
cant room in any of them. Besides, they are a
first-class investment, paying abont 9 per cent
net. This being the case there, where land
suitable for building sites is almost' limitless
in quantity and cheap in price, they ought to
do better here, where land is scarce and dear.
They are a luxury iu Cleveland. Here they
are a necessity. I think the present effort to
introduce such houses in Pittsburg will prove
a great success."
it
At the stock call yesterday afternoon I
noticed that the interest of the brokers was
about equally divided between the business be
fore them and the election. Captain Barbour
was quiet and meditative. He had done his
work and awaited the response of the people.
The break in Electric which really was no
break at all attracted less attention than a
telegram from Butler borough to the effect that
the amendment had been carried there by more
than three to one.
Every scrap of news bearing on tho result was
sought for and eagerly perused. No bets were
made, but every man was confident that his
side would win and the other fellows be snowed
under. When the gong sounded the "boys"
hurried away as if hungry for news of the
great event.
I asked a gentleman yesterday: "What shape
is tho public park question in?" In reply he
said that nothing had been done in tbe matter
so far as he knew. Recent occurrences had
driven the subject from people's minds, and it
was not likely that anything definite would bo
done this season.
He believed, however, that the agitation in
faVor of parks would not be suffered to die out
until the wishes of the people shall have been
complied with. Their necessity had been
established, and nothing remained but to de
vise ways and means for their establishment.
ELECTRIC LETS GO.
The Stock Goes Down Coder a Smnli Bear
Raid.
A break in Electric was the only notable
feature or the stock market yesterday. It de
clined at the first call from 53 asked to 51 on the
offer of a small lot by a bear on the stock. In
the afternoon it was offered at 4 with 49 bid.
There was no change in the situation of the
company, and the decline was the result solely
of the absence of buying orders and indiffer
ence of the brokers, who are waiting for tho ad
justment of the legal complications before
taking hold of it in earnest. The small amount
offered is proof that holders are not alarmed. A
moderate buying demand is all that Is necessary
to send it up again.
All the gassers were weaker, except Philadel
phia, which was fractionally better in the after
noon. The tractions showed no improvement.
Citizens' selling at 69, and Central at 31. The
remainder of the list was practically unchanged
and featureless. Bids, offers and sales wore:

Narrow Fluctuations nnd Business Below
-the Avornee A Big Strike.
Yesterday's oil market was one of the quiet
est seen for a long time. The fluctuations were
very narrow and the sales below tho average.
The only important news was in relation to a
well struck about four miles from Mount
Morris, which was said to be showing at the
rate of 300 to 500 barrels a day. It bad no ap
preciable affect. Outside orders were few and
far between, and the professionals had It out
among themselves.
The market opened at 83, around which
figure it held until about noon, when it ad
vanced to 84. It then broke back to 83, where
it lingered until near the close, when it de
clined to 83 This was followed by another
attack of weakness, which carried It down to
83, which was the final figure. The fluctua
tion for the day was of a cent. Monday's
clearings were 750.000 barrels. The pointer for
to-day was that the-market would show very
little change a trifle weaker, possibly.

STOCKS STE0NG.
A Reaction Which Carries Everything
to
a Level Northern Pacific and Ore
son Lend tho Upward Move
mentRailroad Bonds Active.
New Yobk, June 18. The stock market was
somewhat less active to-day, but it made up in
interest what it lacked in animation, and dur
ing the entire day, with the exception of the
first and last half hours there was a decidedly
strong tone to the dealings, tbe consequence
being that many stocks to-night are materially
higber, while the few declines from last
evening's figures are small and unimportant.
The absence of a large number of
brokers of sporting proclivities at the
yacht and horse races accounted for the di
minished activity this moraine- bnt the with
drawal of the Alton from the Inter-State Asso-,
elation ana ine resignation 01 Commissioner
Fink bad seemingly spent their force upon the
market and there was a most pronounced dispo
sition to take tho more cheerful view of the
railroad situation. There was a considerable
pounding of the Grangers still by the West
erners, and the effects of this pleasure was
most apparent in the first hour of the sessions,
but completely disappeared in the afternoon.
New England and Atchison were the sustaining
elements in the forenoon, but while they were
thought unusually active, neither moved over
a range of more than 1 per cent during the
day, and neither was able to hold its advance.
The great feature of thedaywas the strength
of the Northern Pacific and the Oregon stocks
because of tbe final settlement of tbe Oregon
complications, although Union Pacific in
whose interest tbe provisions of the settlement
were made, failed to respond to the news at
all. The Coal stocks also again came to the
front late in the day, and Jersey Central, Dela
ware and Hudson and Lackawanna all reached
higher figures than before attained and scored
handsome final gains. Realizations in tho last
hour caused a limited reaction and the final
figures are in most cases" something off from
tbe best price-. Tho close was quiet and firm
at slighUy below the best figures of the day.
The final changes are almost invariably in the
direction of higher prices. Delaware and
Hudson rose 2& Lackawanna and Oregon
Navigation 2 ner cent each. Jersey Central and
Oregon Transcontinental lii each. Northern
Pacific preferred 1 and the common 1 per 1

Lackawanna 23.610, St. Paul 14,300, and North
ern Pacific preferred 14,050.
Railroad bonds were fairly active, the sales
of all Issues aggregating" $1,755,000. but there
was none of the interest manifested in the
transactions, and the movements in tbe list
were comparatively small and unimportant.
The Atlantic and Pacific 4s contributed 3181,
000. the Reading 4s $157,000 and the Kansas and
Texas general 6i $141,000 to tbe grand total, but
neither of these bonds show any special feature
beyond their animation. The most marked
movement was the further advance of the St.
Louis and Chicago consols to 43, but they re
acted at the close to 42, a net gain of 1 per cent
from the last previous sale. The weak-spot in
the market was the Hocking Valley issues,
and tbe os dropped 3 to 66 and the 6s 2 to 68.

says: The rainfall has been abundant. Cereals
look well, except in the midland counties,
where the soil is saturated to a great ex
tent. The sales of English wheat during
the past week wero 41,765 quarters, at 28s
4d against 39,667 quarters at 31s 7d during the
corresponding week last year. The off-coast
trade has been slow Binro Whitsuntide. A sale
of California wheat at 33s ia indicates steadi
ness. Mnch English wheat is offering under
30s. Russian is Is, Indian 6d and American red
3d dearer. Flour 13 dnlL Malting barley is
firm. The May arrivals of Chilian and Cali
fornia have gone to consumers. Grinding bar

Home-raised strawberries are in bountiful
supply. Continuous rains have resulted in
large quantities of berries coming to markets
in poor condition. Raspberries begin to come
in freely, and will supplant the strawberry in a
few days, to be in its turn supplanted by black
berries. Every dog and every berry has Its
day. The strawberry's day for this season will
soon come to an end. and the housewife who
has not yet done her preserving in this line is
advised to attend to it this week. The firmness
of old potatoes last week has brought forward
bountiful supplies, and the upward drift has
been checked. Butter, eggs and cheese remain
practically unchanged.

A STARTLING FACT.
The diseases of tbe kidneys and urinary or
gans are much more common than are gener
ally supposed. Beginning by a weakness in the
back, accompanied by pain, which at first may
be so slight as to cause little or no inconven
ience to the persons afflicted, still as tbe dis
ease progresses there are presented a chain of
symptoms which eventually lead to
graver difficulties: there is an in
creased pain in tho small of the back
and In the region of the groins, high colored
urine with brickdust sediment, scanty or
copious flow, with frequent desire and pain in
voiding it Not only do the organs themselves
become organically diseased, terminating in
gravel or stone in the bladder, diabetes or
Bright's disease, often ending in that most
fatal condition, convulsive ureamla, hut are
one of the most potent causes of rheumatism
and dropsy. The physicians of the Folypathlc
Institute also treat successfully all forms of
skin and blood diseases; also clubfoot, tumors,
rupture, ulcers, varicose veins, piles and de
formities. Please remember that the physicians of the
tho Polypatbic Institute are not traveling
doctors, but are permanently located. They
have been established in Pittsburg for nearly
one year, and hundreds testify to cures re
ceived. Office hours, 10 to 11:30 A. jr., 1 to 4 and 6 to
8 P. M. Sundays, 1 to 4 p. M. Consultation free.
