Thursday, June 20. 1SS9.J
Liberty live stock markets present few
satisfactory features this week from the sell
ers' standpoint The run of local cattle was
too large tor demands of trade, and quality
was below the average. A number were still on
hand at noon to-day. The few loads on hand
suitable for our markets held, up fairly well to
last week's prices. These were light, tidy butch
er stock, weighing from 1,100 to 1,200. The
stock that dragged were thin feedcrs.which had
been taken from grass too soon.
Sheep and lambs were slow at prices ranging
from 15 to 30c below rates of last week. Both
euecp and hogs were slow because of difficulties
and delays in transportation to Eastern mar
kets. Following is report of week's transactions at

Tanner in Better Heart.
A representative of one of our leading har
ness leather manufacturing firms, who has
seen to-day's reports, speaks as follows con
cerning the situation and outlook of this indus
try: "Hides and leather have given signs of
greater firmness and activity the past week or
two. Stock at the Allegheny tanneries .has
been well cleaned out of late. A few weeks
ago stock was accumulating uncomfortably
fast, and there was a fear that tanners would
come up to the hot season with a larger sur
plus than nsual on hand. All of the Allegheny
manufacturers have been increasing their ca
pacity duringthelasttwoorthree years. Their
product was so much in demand that it became
necessary to enlarge. In tbe early spring it
looked as though we bad overdone the matter.
But events have failed to justify our fears.
So far as I can learn the tanners over the
river are carrying very light stocks.
"When harness leatlier can be sold at all. the
Pittsburg brand has little difficulty finding cus
tomers at lc per pound over all other brands."
The firm represented by the gentleman here
quoted works up oi.OOO hides annually and con
sumes 12,000 cords of bark. In order to reach
tbe total of the Allegheny harness leather tan
ners it wonld be necessary to .multiply these
figures bv four. One-third of this product goes
to New England.
One leading manufacturer of horse equip
ments reports a trade from January to June
above the corresponding period of last year,
which was an extra good year in his line. This
trade is principally in the finer grades of har
ness. Said he: "Prices of low-grade harness
leather are cheaper than last year, but on the
Quality we use there is no material change. We
have had a better trade each month this year
than we bad the corresponding month of last
year. The returns for June are not in, and
trade has been slow tbe past week. But what
ever comes, we know that tbe first half of this
year has been better with us than the same
period of last year, and that year had beaten
all previous records."

K0THIXG SLOW ABOUT HIM.
A Snbstitnte Foatnl Clerk Who Got Away
Willi SO Registered Packages.
Chicago, June 20. "W. C. Lally, a
substitute postal clerk was on trial in the
United States District Court to-day charged
with stealing 86 registered packages. C.
A. Storey, an employe in the registry divi
sion who was dismissed after the robbery,
testified that the only wonder was that there
had not been more robberies. He said that
the registry division was inadequately
guarded; on Sunday nights from 8 to 11 p.
It, there was no watchman, only two men
occupied the office and the doors were wide
open lor railway mail clerks to enter and
All the circumstances, he said, poinied to
Lally as the guilty man. Since December
20th there had been eight robberies, and the
time books showed that Lafly was the only
man who was on duty at the time when all
these robberies occurred.
A Hurricane Loose In Dakota.
VEBMfLLiON, Dak, June 20. A heavy
wind storm struck this place at 12:45 this
morning, doing considerable damage.
Colonel Jonathan Kimball's new residence,
the Catholic Church and a building on the
fair grounds are total wrecks. Several
houses were moved from their foundations,
and steeples, chimneys and outhouses are
generally flat. The loss is estimated at
Buc and Wet Wcntker Give 'the Wheat
Market Another Boost Corn and Oats
Higher Roc Products Active
Chicago Wheat was stronger today. The
news was more favorable to the bull Interest
and created some little anxiety among the
short Interest Damage to wheat by "bugs, un
settled and rainy weather, especially in sections
where dry weather would bo preferable, and
large clearances, changed the sentiment of
local traders and the feeling at domestic mar
kets was likewise affected. June advanced lc,
but closed with the advance lost. July opened
Kfie higher, advanced lfo receded c and
closed Jc higher than yesterday. Deferred
futures shared in the improvement, advancing
lljc and closed JJQlc higher.
Yesterday's closing developed a rather bear
ish feeling, but this morning at the start there
was not much wheat for sale, and under the
nature of the Influences brought to bear on the
market, good buying set in, which caused the
steady and sharp advance noted. Probably the
principal Influence was the reportedappearance
of "green bugs" in the wheat fields of Indiana
and Ohio, and the report that considerable
damage would be the result, more especially in
the way of shriveled wheat Rain was also re
ported West and South and cloudy weather in
the Southwest There was some buying on un
settled weather. Damage to the Russian crop
was also brought to the surface again, which,
it is claimed, is greater in som sections than
had been calculated upon.
Considerable interest was manifested In corn,
trading being quite active at times, and higher
prices were" established. Most of the business
as transacted during the first half of the ses
sion, after which the market became more
quiet Trading was more general to-day than
lor some time past, the volume of business be
ing larger with more doing on country account
Tbe wet weather as the strengthening factor,
and country shorts covered freely, which made
local operators rather nervous, who In turn
also covered. The market opened a shade
higher than the closing prices of yesterday,
was firm and gradually advanced Jc; reacted
JiSJaC, ruled quiet and steady, closing yic
higher than yesterday.
In oats a larger business was transacted and
a stronger feeling developed, especially in the
near futures, which were bought with increased
freedom by shorts, who became scared at the
advance in corn and reports of bad weather,
and wanted to cover. Offerings during the
early part of tbe day were light especially of
July, which advanced c, but reacted a
and closed easy. August, September and the
more deferred deliveries were offered freely,
and prices only advanced Jc
Trading was more active in the market for
mess pork and tbe feeling was somewhat un
settled. Early sales were made at 57Kc ad
vance, but a weaker feeling developed later,
and prices receded 1720c The market
closed quiet at inside prices.
Only a fair trade was reported in the lard
market and the feeling was easy. Prices ruled
2Sc lower and the market closed tame at
In short rib sides trading was moderate and
the feeling was easy. Prices declined 25c
and tbe market closed quiet and steady at tbe

A LOCAL ESTIMATE OF THE WHEAT CBOP
Three years ago a membership in the Pitts
burg Petroleum, Grain and Metal Exchange
was valued at about $1,100. Yesterday one
was sold for 5475. This shows that the spec
ulative interest here is in a comatose condi
tion", and there is no prospect of a speedy
This fact should give a greater value to
our bank clearings than is accorded them in
some quarters, as it bears out former state
ments that nearly all the business done here is
The following legend Is displayed at the
cashier's window In one of the leading banks of
"The Lord helps those who help, themselves,
but the Lord help those found helping them
The problem of a water supply at West End
Place has been solved. , I mentioned a few days
ago that a well had been bored and a good sup
ply of the natural beverage attained. Since
then two other wells have been put down,
making three in all. They are IIS', 90 and 75
feet deep respectively. The diameter of the
bore is six inches. They are cased with iron'
down to the rock, which is found at a depth of
15 or 20 feet This makes it impossible for sur
face water to get into them. Bored wells are
coming into favor hereabouts.
Pure water is necessary to good health
Where wells are used too much care cannot be
taken to keep out the surface water. The
typhoid epidemic which decimated Williams
port in this State, a few years ago, was caused
by impure water. About nine years ago an
alarming sickness broke out in our handsome
suburb of Wilkinsburg. The sick list num
bered S00 or 400, and the death roll was very
large. It was traced to sewage and surface
water getting into the wells.
The ancients were great well diggers. Their
wells were 15 or 20 feet in diameter, from 50 to
70 feet deep, and cemented from top to bottom.
Tbe well at which Isaac's commissioner met
Rebekah aud tbe one where our Savior talked
with the woman of Samaria, are still in good
condition, and in dally use. The former is
more than 3,000 years old.
I asked an iron worker yesterday to give me
his opinion of the condition and prospects of
the market He replied:
"Prices are no higher, but they are a little
stronger. The mills are hard at work to exe
cute tbeir orders by the end of the present
month. At the beginning of July there will be
a general shut-down for two weeks or longer to
make necessary repairs, and to settle the wage
question. This may cause some trouble, but I
do not look for a strike. The workers know
that trade has been dragging for a long time,
and I think they will be reasonable in their de
mands. They have always been paid consider
ably more than Eastern workers."
"Because in the East the manufacturers are
organized and the men are not Here the re
verse is the case. This shows the power of or
He added that the orders the mills were now
working on were for regular sizes to supply
anticipated wants before operations were re
sumed. "How do yon think the fall trade will be T"
"I think it will be brisk. The prospect is
favorable for a good demand for almost every
thing, and I think prices will be advanced."
A Pittsburg grain broker, taking the Gov
ernment crop report as a basis, has figured out
that tbe wheat crop this year will be 520.000,000
"It is more likely to exceed than to fall
under this estimate," he" added.
"WATCHING AND WAITING.
Stock Brokers Reaiine on Their Oars for a
Turn of tbe Tide.
Yesterday's stock market was productive of
a great many figures and very little business.
After the morning call a small lot of Philadel
phia Gas changed hands at 37. showing firm
ness, if not activity. Electric was opened at 5L
with 50 bid. The firmness of this stock Is ac
cepted as an indication of a revival in the near
future. La Noria was wanted at 1, but It was
held higher. The remainder of the list was
featureless, as well as dull.
The sale of a membership at S475 when, three
years ago, it wonld have brought 1,100, shows
better than anything else the depressed condi
tion of the speculative interests. A broker re
marked: "We have no orders either way to
amount to anything, and of course we can do
nothing. Prices are about at the bottom. The
next change will be for the bettor." Bids,

A BETTER PEELING.
Oil Opens Weak and Closes Strong, With
Ten Little Doing.
Tbe oil market was badly in the dumps at the
opening yesterday, but It improved in temper
as the day wore on, and the close was one of
the firmest for a long time, indicating a belief
in a better time coming. Trading was light
and of a professional character, the most ot it
being done in the afternoon. There was noth
ing in the way of news to affect the market on
Tbe opening price was83Jc. Themarketthen
made a little spurt for no particular reason and
advanced Ho, but it failed to develop staying
qualities and quietly receded to the opening

THE SUGAR TRUST
Leads a Kally In tho Stock market, Fol
lowed Lnter by tbe Ronlers The
Bears on a Raid Advances
In tho Mnjorliy.
New York, June 20. The stock market was
much less active to-day, there being less dispo
sition to trade than' on any day for a week past
The news of 'the day was not of special im
portance, though the usual reports of rate
cutting in the AVest beside other troubles,
were talked about; but they seemed to bave
but little influence over the course of prices.
The denial that the Rock Island intended to
leave the Inter-State Association, with tbe un
expected buying orders in the market from
London this morning, completely wiped out
every appearance of weakness at the opening,
and first prices were generally from to per
cent higher than last evening's closing figures.
The smaller shorts hastened to cover, and the
result was further slight advances in tbe earlv
trading. The bears, however, could not give us
the fight so easily, and a demonstration was
made against the list with tbe result of bring
ing Union Pacific, which was a fair mark be
cause of a threatened strike of its engineers,
down nearly 1 per cent Lackawanna, Missouri
Pacific. Reading, Rock Island and Atchison
followed with the general list, showing slight
losses. The force of the movement was spent
in the first half hour, however, and a better
tone soon spread throughout the market, with
Sugar Trust leading. It reached 114, the
highest point yet
Oregon Transcontinental was helped by the
announcement by Mr. Willard that he did not
intend to liqnidate Transcontinental but pro
poses in due time to reconstruct tbe
company on a better financial basis,
which will be greatly to the advantage
of the stockholders. The stock roso
about 1 per cent to 37. Dullness became the
must conspicuous feature of tbe market after
noon, but prices continued to creep up, and
the Coalers took the lead in the upward move
ment, which extended to about lk per cent,
with Delaware and Hudson and Lackawanna
leading. The suits to abolish tbe voting trust
In Reading attracted no attention and seem
ingly had no effect upon the stock.
A realizing movement began in the last hour,
and prices moved off quite rapidly in some
parts of the list, Atchison, New England and
Lackawanna leading. Just before the close
there was another lot of gold ordered for ex
port, and this helped tbe downward movement,
tbe market closing quiet but heavy and close
to opening figures. The final changes are all
for fractional amounts, with advances in a
large majority. Oregon Navigation and West
ern Union sold ex-dividend to-day. '
There was the usual moderate business in
railroad bonds and the regular firm tone, with
slight fluctuations and lack of special features.
Tbe sales of all issues reached $1,636,000. Read
ing 4s contributed $137,000. the 2d incomes

P. D. LAING'S POINT.
He Takes the French Spring Works' Affairs
A bill in equity was filed yesterday by
Frank D. Layng against tbe A. French
Spring Company, Limited. The capital
stock of the company is $500,000, of which
Mr. Layng claims that he owns $31,250 worth.
He states that in 1S8S Aaron French, Chair
man of the spring company, without the
knowledge or consent of the plaintiff or the
Board of Management of tbe company, pur
chased the stock of the Bolton Steel Company,
of Canton, O., to the amount of $S7,S00, a con
trolling interest In payment French gave
three notes for $25,000 each and the balance m
cash. The purchase was professed to have
been made on behalf of tbe spring company,
and was charged up to them.
The Board of Managers afterward ratified
tbe purchase. As a result the regular divi
dends of the spring company have been sus
pended. Layng desires the Court to enjoin the
payment of the three notes out of the partner
ship funds, and that the Board of Managers be
required to indemnify the company from any
loss by reason of the purchase. Also, that the
Conrt decree that the purchase of the Bolton
Steel Company's stock was not within the
scope of the business ot the partnership, and
tbe purchasers be declared to have made the
purchase on their own account

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 ox
symptoms which eventually lead to
graver difficulties; tbere is an in
creased pain in the small of the back
and In tbe 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
Eright's disease, often ending in that most
fatal condition, convulsive ureamia, but are
one of the most potent causes of rheumatism
ana aropsy. ine pnysicians ot tne iroiypatnio
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 tho
the Polypatbic Institute are not traveling
doctors, but are permanently located. Tbey
bave been established in Pittsburg for nearly
one year, and hundreds testify to cures re
ceived. Office hours, 10 to 1120 A. M.. 1 to 4 and 6 to
