OFFICE OF PITTSBURG DlSPATCIT, "1
Wednesday, June 19, 1&9. J
There were very few bright features to the
live stock market at Liberty this week.
Trade was slow all'along the line, and sales
could only 1)0 effected at concessions on last
week's prices. Even with liberal concessions
on tbe part of holders, a number of cattle and
cheep were unsold at last accounts.
The run was about 80 loads, an excess of 10
oads over last week.
lathe supplies "were a large proportion of
Etockers, and what a leading stockman terms
lilgit sljppery butcher cattle," just oil crass.
For this class of cattle customers were few,
and 30Q head remained unsold at noon to-day,
though holders were ready to concede 30 to 35c
on last week's prices. In the supplies were ton
loads of Rood to prime cattle, most of "Winch
were bought by a representativ e of a Baltimore
firm for export purpo&es. The price paid was
H 25 to S4 50. Prime cattle held their own. on
account of scarcity. All other grades are lower.
Calves, dry cows and bulls are very slow,
Baid a member of one the leading live stock
firms, "the market for dry cows and bulls this
week has been the worst this 3 ear. especially
for ordinary grades. 1 hero is no show for low
grade thin stock of an v kind here. The f aimers
of Ohio and Indiana who take their cattle off
grass before they are well fatted and ship to
this market make a very large mistake and one
that is expensive. They had much better keep
their thin cattle on grass a month or two longer,
and take the chances of abetter market than
send them in their uufatted state to present
"These lean grasers come Into competition
with Texas cattle which have been longer on
grass and shrink less. There is a loss to ship-
Eers. producers and consumers on the thin,
alf fatted butcner cattle coming to our
markets, and if the Ohio and Indiana farmer
must take this grade from grass they should
sell them nearer home as they are not wanted
here. When grass i so abundan as it now is
and markets are so mean, except for the best
butcher stock, the true policy would be to
feed longer and take the chances for a better
Shrrp and Lambs.
Tbe supply was above that of last week and
demand below. Prices are 20 to 23c below the
range of last w eck, and markets were slow at
tbe decline. At last accounts there were a
number of loads held over from yesterdav
which failed to find customers even at liberal
concessions from last week's prices. Tbe de
lays in Eastern shipments have had a depress,
ing influence on'our markets. Buy ers forEast
ern markets a week or two past have been re
luctant to take hold because of tbe trouble
getting stock promptly through to destination.
The difficulty of transportation eastward has
also seriously affected hog markets the past two
eeks. Regular buyers from Philadelphia and
Baltimore have on this account found it better
to go elsewhere. As the blockade is broken an
lmpro ement is generally expected at an early

An Kxtra Session of the Illinois Legislature
May be Cnllcd to TnLe Action of the
Condition of the Cook County
Insane Asylum The Wont
on the Continent.
Chicago, June 19. The investigation
into the condition of the Cook County In
sane Asylum came to an end to-day. Judge
Prendergast reviewed the evidence at great
length, pointing out the dreadful results
arising from the combined influences of pol
itics, overcrowding, brutality and filth.
".For 30 years," said tbe Judge, "this asy
lum lias stood very low in the estimation of
those familiar with the science of insanity
and the treatment of the insane. It finally
achieved the bad pre-eminence of being
namea at the late international congress of
physicians at Washington as-being the worst
asylum on the continent."
Pointing out the effects of political man-
' agement of such an institution, the Judge
said: "It is plain that very many, if not
all, of the evils existing in this asvlum
com from the fact that the officials
and attendants are appointed by a political
body, the membership of which is constantly
shifting and changing. To a great extent
officials, attendants and workmen have been
and are appointed on political grounds.
The constant care of these persons is to re
tain their places, and they cultivate the
friendship of the powers that be instead of
, itodying to increase their efficiency and
! skill upon the attendance of the insane. All
the evidence demonstrates beyond a doubt
that there can be no permanent remedy
while the insane asylnm is under tbe con
trol of the County Board. The present
County Board has done better than its prede
cessors, but the system is vicious."
It is because there is no hope of remedy
in tie city or county, the Judge says, that
, tba: e recommends a special session of the
State Legislature to pass a law putting all
such institutions under control of tbe State.

The Weather Still a Lending Factor In tbe
Wheat Pit (5orn Higher nnd Oata
Featureless Hoc Product!
Qntct nnd Lower.
Chicago There was less doing In wheat to
day, and trading was more of a local character,
with fluctuations confined within a smaller
range. Tbe feeling was a little unsettled. The
opening for July was K?h5 lower, and prices
further receded He then rallied c, eased off
again and closed K5c lower than yesterday.
August and December closed KolwertDan
yesterday. The early weakness was due to
clear weather here, the sun shining brightly,
and there was a fair quantity of wheat on sale,
but good buying at the decline resulted in a re
covery of the decline, only to weaken off lower
Reported rains in the Red River Valley yes
terday had a weakening influence. In the
Southwest advices report too much rain, and
harvesting is interfered with in consequence.
The weather is still one of the principal factors
affecting the market. Liverpool advices re
ported a quiet feeling and noted higher prices,
while London qnoted nothing doing and Paris
was lower. The quantity on ocean passage
was reported as showing a decrease of 400,000
bushels. A light export business was reported
at the seaboard.
A fair degree of activity was manifested in
corn during the early part of the session, and
the feeling developed was quite firm, higher
prices being established. As the session ad
vanced the maiket became quiet, most of the
business being transacted early. The better
lone was attributed largely to falling off in the
receipts. Unfavorable reports regarding the
growing crop from the southern portion of the
State, stating too much rain had fallen and
considerable quantities were under ground,
also had a strengthening influence. The mar
ket opened a shade below the closing prices of
yesterdav, was firm and advanced c cased off
a little, closing K5ic higher than yesterday.
Oats n cro quiet and destitute of new or im
portant features of interest, trading being light
and mainly in the way of evening up contracts
in the nearfuture.
Very little interest was manifested in tbe
market for hog products, and the feeling was
easy. The supply of hogs at all tLe principal
csiern packing ports was larger, witn prices
favoring buyers, and this had a weakening in
fluence. Speculative trading was confined al
most exclusively to July and September deliv
eries the latter attracting most attention.
Prices for all the leading ruled lower, and the
market closed qniet at about inside figures.
The leading futures ranged as follows:

Difficulties in the Way of Securing Homes

PLENTY OP CHEAP PEOPEETI LEFT.
In passing to and fro on Fourth avenue
yesterday I noticed that many of the prin
cipal real estate offices were well filled with
customers. This was especially tbe case
at Beringer & Son's, S. W". Black & Co.'s,
Herron & Sons', Black & Baird's and some
others. One of the firm of Black & Baird
"There is a buoyant feelinj: in tbe real
estate market. The majority of our cus
tomers are buyers and they want everything
from a business block to a cheap lot. Busi
ness is fully 75 per cent better than at tbe
same time last year, and I think it will
keep up all summer. This shows that the value
of land as an Investment is becoming 'pretty
The item which appeared in this department
of The Dispatch yesterday, stating that tbe
Pittsburg Plate Glass Company had just paid a
monthly dividend of 3 per cent, making 17 per
cent distributed to stockholders thus far this
year, was correct so far as the figures were
concerned, but erroneous, it appears, in this
respect, that the amount so paid was not en
tirely ont of the earnings of the present year,
but included a portion of those of 1833, which
were not paid until January 1 last.
This statement is made by a gentleman con
nected with the company in the interest of a
portion of the stockholders who do not desire
any deception in the matter that would lead to
a fictitious boom and cause unsuspecting
parties to invest in the stock under a misappre
hension. The true condition of the plant, the gentle
man stated, is about this: The stockholders at
their meeting on the 18th inst. voted to increase
the lndebtedness,,$750,000, for which a mortgage
on the property of the company will he issued
in a few days. This mortgage is in addition to
an older one of $200,000, both making $950,000.
From this statement it is apparent that
future dividends, if any at all, will be small
and far between until the above indebtedness
It Is a mistake to think that all the cheap
property has been bought up. There is plenty
of it left at very low figures. A Wilklnsburg
agent is offering lots as low as J150. At Maple
wood Park they are selling as low as $400. On
the Southside, at West End Place and on ML
Washington values are about the same as at
AH ot these districts are well adapted to resi
dence purposes and are rapidly filling up. They
offer an opportnnlty for people of moderate
means to acquire homes that should not be
neglected, Wbother built on or not lots at tbe
figures above given are a good Investment.
This leads me to remark that the difficulties
in the way of getting homes are now more Im
aginary than real. People want too much. A
young married couple must have a big house,
with al! the modern conveniences elevator,
electric bells, hot and cold water, and many
other expensive luxuries. It requires a large
income to maintain a family in this style, and
the result in many cases is a mountain of debt
and eventually bankruptcy.
A man who allows his love for display to
carry him beyond his means, and to embarrass
his whole subsequent life, is to be sincerely
pitied. - Many a promising life bas been
wrecked on this dangerous rock, although it
is prominently portrayed in all charts of do
loung married people who affect brown
stone fronts and expansive lawns, and turn up
their noses at less pretentious environments,
forget that their fathers or their grandfathers
were content with a log cabin of two rooms and
a ladder by which they ascended to the "loft,"
not attic as it is now called whera the dried
apples, pumpkins, walnuts, herbs, and other
articles were stored for Winter use. Many of
the rich men of Pittsburg commenced life in
this way. The clods have scarcely settled on
the grave of one of the foremost men In this
community a man whose success in business
will be pointed to in coming years for the en
'Traveling o'er life's weary main."
He commenced his married life at the bot
tomlived in a house of two rooms, kept no
servants, and was diligent In business. He
was not mercenary, for his charities were large,
but he saved wherever he could. He labored
for something more substantial than mere dis
play, and succeeded. He often told me of his
early struggles, and of hii difficulties in over
coming them. The foundation of the millions
left to his family was laid amid bumble sur
roundings, where the useful and necessary
were given precedence over the ornamental
and fictitious. So long as true manhood is
admired the name of William Semple will be
held in honorable remembrance.
It is better to begin at the bottom and go up
than to begin at :he top and come down. The
ascent of a rocket is a beautiful display, but
its descent is of tbe most prosaic kind. It is a
false notion of young people that they must
begin where the old folks left off. Few men
are too pooVto buy a cheap lot and have a two
or three roomed house put up on it on the easy
payment plan. J3y so doing they would save
rent and be eaabled to lay up something for a

handled, the sales of which were 121 shares.
Electric was stronger, showing that Tuesday's
tumble was fictitous. Two small lots were of

not have been bought under 52.
The tractions were practically higher, as
were most of the gasers. The rest of the list

A Few Strong Features, bnt Renr-
ly Everything Close at a
New York, June 19. The stock market to
day was more active, but became weak, espe
cially in the afternoon, and prices to-night are,
with but few exceptions, materially lower than
those of last evening. There was a good deal
of bullish talk heard to-day, but there seemed
no disposition to buy stocks, and commission
people reported a marked absence of buying
orders, and this encouraged attacks upon the
list, in which tbe Grangers, under the influence
of further discouraging rumors in regard to the
roads in tbe Inter-State Association, suffered
most severely. .
The Coal stocks were especially strong all
the forenoon, but they also yielded later in the
day and finally material declines were estab
lished in all of them. The Oregon shares were
the only groupmalntainingtheir firm tone, and
they even scored further final advances. In
addition there was no lack of advices of dam
age to the growing crops, and there was a
fresh statement from President .Miller in re
gard to the charges of tbe Alton against the
Sc Paul, while Hew rumors of the issue were of
a blanket mortgage on the St. Paul. New En
gland and Atchison wero prominent all day
long in the dealings, but gave evidence of
manipulation, which, however, failed to hold
them up toward tbe close.
Opening prices were extremely irregular this
morning, and tbe same irregularity was
noticed in the early trading, and whilo the
Oreeon stocks and New England made ma
terial advances, Lackawanna and others sym
pathized to a limited extent in the improve
ment. Dullness became the most prominent
feature, however, except for a few of the lead
ing shares, and the movements were small and
insignificant. Toward noon tbe pressure to sell
became more pronounced, and New England
and St. Paul led off In the decline, but the re
mainder soon joined in, and before delivery
nour material losses naa Deen scored an over
At 2 P. 3r. there was some little reaction, bnt
the downward course of prices was resumed in
the last hour, and after another slight rally the
market closed fairly active and weak at about
the lowest prices of tbe day. There were about
26,000 shares traded in the unlisteddepartment.
Oregon Navigation scored a rise of 1 per cent,
and Toledo, Ann Arbor and North Michigan 1,
but Southern Pacific is down 3 Burlington
1, Delaware and Hudson and St. Paul IK
each. Rock Island 2, Union Pacific 1, ana
jNew England 1 per cent.
Railroad bonds were quiet to-day and did not
sympathize with the weakness in stocks, though
mere were some luarseu losses estaonsneu in
tbe list The general tone of the dealings was
strong, however, and most issues are higher
to night There was, hoWever, very little spe
cial feature to tbe dealings. The sales of all
issues reached 81,492,000. of which Atlantic
and Pacific 4s contributed 8190,000 and Reading
second Incomes 8131.000. Erie thirds rose 2, to
113; Ohio and Mississippi 5s, 3. to XMx Fort
"Wayne seconds, 2.. to 147K, and Wheeling and
Lake Erie firsts, 3, to 105 Hocking Valley 63
lost 2, at 66.

LATE HEWS Iff BRIEF.
The President will visit Cape May Friday
and remain there until Monday or Tuesday of
next week. He will make the trip both ways
by rail instead of by water, ad at first intended.
The President has appointed William
Wakefield postmaster at Humboldt, Kan., vice
Mrs. Ella C. Kimball, commission expired: and
Albert H. Fortuue. postmaster at Bloomfleld,
la., vice Harry C. Evans, removed.
At the inquest at Armagh into the cause of
the fatal railroad accident near there last week,
representatives of the Irish Northern Railroad
Company, on whose road tbe disaster occurred,
announced that the company would accept all
liability for the accident, and was prepared to
consider all claims for damages on account of
loss of life or injuries that might be presented.
I have no time to talk politic." said Gov
ernor Foraker, of Ohio, In New York yester
day. "I am about to start for home and have
barely time to catch my train. I am not a can
didate for renomination. I have no desire for
the honor again, and believe it is time to give
somebody else a chance. I am aware of the
movement to push the nomination upon me,
bnt you can say for me that I do not want it
and will not take it."
The lucky North German Lloyd steamship
Saale is probably not the only craft that shoved
an iron prow into an iceberg on June 11. A
crystalline fleet of these lowcrine? shin destroy
ers seems to have been drifting northeasterly
on that day along the current of tbe gulf
stream, right in the path of adventurous navi
gators who risk tbe higher latitudes to shorten
their voyage hither - from European ports.
Other vessels report meeting with the icy fleet,
and it is feared some accidents may have oc
curred. Great consternation has Ticen created
among the farmers of Marion county,Indlana,by
the appearance during tbe last day or two of a
small, green bug or parasite that threatens to
demolish tbe wheat, oats and rye crop. The
pests appear upon ever head by hundreds and
planting themselves at tbe base of tbe grain
sap the life out of It. It is believed that the
backward portion of the crop will be utterly
destroyed and the portions that are advanced
will be badly injured. Reports from adjacent
counties lnalcate that the presence of tbe par
asite is widespread.
A young woman named Hannah Heltland
has been working for ber brother in Qnincy.
111. She recently left his house and walked to
her home in Tioga, a dtstance of 25 or 30 iniIo.
Sho showed symptoms of insanity, and her
parents, with other Ignorant Germans of that
vicinity, held a sort of incantation over tbe
girl, sticking pins Into ber person to "drive
away tbe evil spirit." The young woman be
came almost unconscious, and in this condition
she was bound hand and foot, gagged and
placed In a farm wagon brought to Catbage
and placed in a livery stable. Here she re
mained from noon yesterday until near mid
nltrht last mrht in an unconscious condition.
The unfortunate creature was finally taken to
jail, where a physician is trying to save her life.
Pins were still found sticking in her person.
A judicial Investigation will be held.
The local option bill after hanging fire in
the Michigan Senate for weeks, passed that
body yesterday and will probably become a law
as soon as it reaches tbe Governor. A nnmber
of serious defects led tbe Supreme Court to de
clare tbe local option law of two years ago un
constitutional, and the new apt has been care
fully framed to avoid these objection. On
this account tbe powerot suspending the, liquor
traffic in any county Is given to tbe County
Supervisors instead of dtrectly to tbe people.
Any time one-fifth of the voters of a county
petition for a local option election the County
Clerk is requirtd to call a special meeting of
the supervisors and they In turn to call tbe
election. If the county votes In favor of pro
hibition tbe Supervisors have power to adopt a
resolution prohibiting the sale of liquors, but
are not compelled to do so only as morally
hound by the decision of the voters.

California oranges are showing up in good

Y,c at Elgin Monday, which leaves prices tbe
tome as two weeks ago. New York cheese was
advanced o in Eastern markets at the begin

by jobbers here as a speculative one. Threo
big buyers in New York, it is said, are buying
up all the cheese they can get their hands on In
this country and Canada, having sold short in
Liverpool. The effect on legitimate trade is
already felt. Tbe consumer will in the end
have to pay the damages. Continuous rains

A STARTLING FACT.
The diseases of the 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 the small of the back
and in the region of the groins, high colored
urine with nrickdust sediment, scanty or
copious flow, with frequent desireutnd pain in
voiding it. Not only do the organs themselves
become organically diseased, terminating in
gravel or stone in tbe bladder, diabetes or
Bright's disease, often ending in that most
fatal condition, convulsive ureamia, bnt are
one of the most potent causes of rheumatism
anddropjy. The physicians of the Polypathic
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 tbe
the Polypathic 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. M:. 1 to 4 and 6 to
8 P. M. Sundays, 1 to 4 p. St. Consultation free.
