OFFICE OF PITTSBURG DISPATCH, 1
Feidat. June 21, IS&.S
Vegetables and Iruit are in good supply,
but below standard as to quality on account
of rainy weather. Strawberries' are not com
jmr in in the best shape, and for the best,
prices are firmer than for a few days past.
Raspberries, both red and black, are coming
freely, and tha time for the strawberry for this
season approaches its end. Ripe cnrrants are
found on the stalls for the first time the past
week. New potatoes aro drifting downward.
Cabbage should sell at low prices, as produce
jobbers report that the buyer can name his
A Diamond market vender of fruits and veg
etables reports trade this week as an improve
ment on last week. Said he: "Stuff is coming in
in rather bad sbapo on account of the continu
ous rains, but demand is good, and our cus
tomers want the Soods all the same."
In the lino of butter, eggs and poultry dealers
report a quiet trade.
The supply of countrv butter has been in ex
cess of tue demand all the week. Creamery
feels the effect, and the situationof the nutter
market is at this date in the buyer's lavor.
Fish are not in supply sufficient for demand.
The laws of Ohio f oruid the use of the net after
the loth of June, and hence there has been a
dearth or laUc salmon, white fish and trout the
past week. Eastern flab are in good supply,
wholesale rates have advanced, but retail
prices are unchanged. A leading dealer said
to-da "our profits are about wiped ont in
"Western fish by express chai ges. From Erie
and Sandusky tbe express charges are $3 per
barrel, aim from Port Huron and Detroit Si.
The Ohio laws against fishing after June 15 are
not in operation in Michigan, but as our chief
source of supply is from the former State we
have been short of stock for the past week."
Florists are doing little at this season, be
cause all who have gardens are able to raise
their own flowers. Said one of the leading
florists: "Trade is poor, and will remain so for
a couple of months. At this time of the year
people in general raise their own flowers, and
make few demands on our trade. Even the fu
neral trade is slack for some unaccountable
reason. People here have spent their spare
money to help Johnstown sufferers, and have
little lert for floral display."

Railroad Mileage of ilie World.
The latest estimate of the railroad mileage of
the world is given in a German periodical. The
conclusion is that there are 324.403 miles of rail
road in existence, in which $26,500,000,000 is in
vested. The capital in Europe is 113,000 per
mile and in other countries 559,000. Nearly one
fourth of tho mileage of the railroads of the
world has been constructed during tho last
louryears. This country leads all others in
the amount of mileage, which is placed at 150,
700, a low-estimate. Of the European couutries

Chicago. Only a moderate business
was done in wheat to-day. It was again a

unsettled, w ith the undertone apparently weak.
July opened Jic higher, eased off c, then ad

c, and closed about the same as yesterday.
August was weaker, and after advancing c,
declined Jic, and closed Kc lower than yester
day. December closed c lower.
The early strength was due to a report of
continued wet and rainy weather in the South
west, where the grain is ripe, but cannot be
harvested on account or the fields being too
wet. Cables, too, were stronger, noting good
demand and better prices, with private cables
stating that foreign markets are gaining
strength from the reported damage to the Rus
sian crop. Domestic markets sjmpathized with
the advancing tendency early, but later weak

free offerings by a prominent trader. There

Salient Features of the Country
Along the Fort Wayne Eoad.
HANDSOME AND THRIVING TO.WNS.
A Landscape Unsurpassed in Beauty by
Any in Uncle Sam's Dominipns.
A GOOD PLACE tOE PLEASAKT HOMES
Those who suppose that the-East End has
a monopoly of everything that is good in
the way of lands, houses and location are
badly mistaken. It is' a characteristic of
the natural environments of Pittsburg that
in whatever direction the eye is turned it
rests upon a vision of loveliness that is
rarely equaled in auy part of the world.
If the East End elicits exclamations of
delight from the beholder, the "West End
commands his admiration; if the Northside
causes him to linger over its outstretching
beauties, the Southslde attracts him by its
rugged splendor. Nature has distributed her
bounties in this vicinity with an unsparing and
A trip down the Fort Wayne Railroad as far
as Sowlckley is more than worth the time and
trouble required to make it. The first placo
demanding attention is Bellevne, which is un
dergoing improvement on an extensive scale.
It contains some pretty houses, and a number
of others are coing up. It is a picturesque
place, and has a bright future before it.
Avion, formerly Birmingham, is another
thriving village. Thirty acres of the estate of
the late John Birmingham have been pur
chased by a syndicate composed principally of
young Alleghenians, who intend to erect
houses thereon for their own use Of the re
mainder of this estate about 20 acres will be
subdivided and the rest held for private use.
Building op erations will be begun by the syndi
cate in a short time.
Half a mile below Avion is Laurel station
where a number of fine residences bave recent
ly been built, and where several good building
sites are jet unoccupied, and no doubt could
be purchased at low prices in comparison with
those prevailing in other localities no better
The next station below is Emsworth, which,
it is generally admitted, is one of the most
beautiful spots around Pittsburg. It contains
a large number of fine residences, which are all
on high ground, and yet easy of access. The
population, about 2.000, is composed of first
class people. There is considerable land in the
vicinity, which can be purchased in tracts of
from one to ten acres. The situation is admir
able and the views unsurpassed. It has an
abundance of pure water and good drainage.
Dixmont, which comes next, is too well
known to require special mention.
Leaving Dixmont and its mournful associa
tions, Glenfleld comes in view. It is nine miles
from Union depot, has a population ot about
1,500, and contains some handsome houses. It
is a thriving village, and is ambitious to nse in
Havesvilln is just below Glenfleld. It was
formerly a fashionable summer resort, but the
destruction of its big hotel by fire some years
ago gave it a setback from which it has not en
tirely recovered. It has a number of fine resi
dences extending down toward Osborne sta
tion. Hayesville is a quiet, home-like village,
with fine land and river views just such a
placo as poets and painters delight to dream
and work in.
Osborne station, which is really a continua
tion of Hayesville, points with pride to several
handsome residences. I was informed that
there are a number of desirable lots for sale at
low prices at this place.
Here we are at Sewickley, the ond of our
journey. This is one of the oldest towns in the
valley, and it has been the seat of culture and
enterprise for many generations. Many of the
prominent men of the country have lived in or
been identified with Sewickley. It is full of ele
gant houses, which are occupied by people who
are prominent in business and social affairs.
Of the whole valleyfrom Allegheny City to
Sewickley and below, it can be said that it con
tains many of the finest locations around the
city of Pittsburg. It has good railroad facili
ties, with a prospect of additional rapid transit
by at least two routes, which are now in con
templation. These will afford means of ingress
and egress equal to those possessed by any
other section. This valley will, without doubt,
soon become a prime favorite with those seek
ing a desirable location in which to establish
Farming lands in New York State are de
preciating. The assessors in 11 counties visited
found that farming lands had depreciated in
value while city property had increased in
value. State Assessor Wood is of the opinion
that in a lew years there will be nothing much
but tenant farmers in this State. The same
facts are observed in Pennsylvania.
It pays to plant willows. The examination
whicn the Government Engineer iu charge of
the Potomac river improvement made shows
that the water reached a height of 2 feet 7
inches above the high-water mark of the
freshet of 1S77, which was the highest of any
known or recorded freshet.
Tho wisdom of planting willows upon the new
lands has been justified. That portion of the
newly-made "flats upon which willows were
planted was protected from, wasldng, so that
practically no damage was done there, while in
the portions of tho improvement which were
not so protected there has been great loss.
The produce of gold from mines in the United
States dnrjng the calendar year 1888 is esti
mated to have been 1.604,841 fine ounces

A Quiet Day In Oil, Wilb
The oil market yesterday showed bo improve
ment over those of the previous days of the
week. The outside interest was conspicuously
absent, aud the professionals were not in a
humor to do much trading. Tho sales "during
the day did not exceed 100,000 barrels. The
opening, closing and fluctuations were the same
as on Friday of last week.
The market opened at S3c, tho same as
Tuesday's closing. It then advanced jc, where
it lingered for some time, when it dropped to
83Mc, around which figure It heldall the after
noon and at which it closed, with a bearlh
feeling. Thursday's clearings were 231,000
There was considerable excitement in Ohio
and Brighton townships, Beaver countv, over
the advent of men seeking oil and gas leases.
They represent parties in Butler, Washington
and Allegheny counties and in tho Turkey
Foot districts. A thousaud acres have been
leased, and wells will be sunk as soon as possi
ble. All contracts call for work to be done in
90 days. The terms are one-eighth royalty for
oil and S5U0 yearly for paying gas wells.

Used na a Pretext for Depressing Stocks
Demonstrations Asaiust tho Liit
Counteracted Lato in tho
Day Final Chnnjes
New "York, June 21. The heavy engage
ments of gold for export yesterday, which were
further swelled by over 1,000,000 to-day, mak
ing in all 5,400,000 to go out by to-morrow's
steamers, was a most conspicuous feature in
the stock market to-day, and served to restrict
trading to the smallest limits. It also encour
aged some demonstrations against the list, and
London turned np as a seller this morning,
which had the effect of opening the market off
Va to K per cent from last evening's figures.
There Is good reason for the suspicion, how
ever, that the selling orders from Londuu this
morning were cabled from this side previously,
as London was a buyer later in the day. Tho
depression could not be maintained as the mar
ket reacted from the low prices of tho opening
immediately, and the offerings were absorbed
without trouble through there waslittle bid
ding for stocks. Tbe activity was all In the
clique stocks and the trusts which, while no
more active than usual it late, occunleda
more prominent position in Jthe market because
of the dullness of the regular list. Lackawanna
yielded to the piessnre about Ji per cent, but
no other stock could be brought down more
than a shade, and everything rallied fromitlrst
Sugar trust, which 'old ex-dividend of 2
per cent, rapidly rose and finally more than re
covered the dividend, although all of the im
provement was not retained at tho ciose. The
pdur prospects of the reorganized road made
Olio, Indiana and Western the weak point in
trfe list, and It sold, down from OJi ti,6 and
nnm r-aciuc also -aeyslopeu qonsiuerauie
cupled most of the attention, though consider
able was heard about the Anthracite trust, but
neither seemed to have any marked effect upon
the course of prices. Dullness and stagnation
became the only features of the market, except
that Rock Island moved np sharply
upon the denial that the road was
to be taken ont of the Inter-state As
sociation, and the favorable reports of
the condition of the crops along the line of the
road. There was some depression In the after
noon, but a firm tone prevailed toward the
closc,.whicb was dull and firm at something
better than first prices. St. Paul was the only
active stock of the regular list, while the three
trust shares were all active. The final changes
are withont exception for fractional amounts
only, and are very evenlv divided between
gains and losses. Missouri Pacifio also sold ex
dividend of 1 per cent.
Railroad bonds were a little more active ow
ing to the greater number ot issues traded in,
but there was no change in the general tone of
the dealings, a firm tone existing with smaller
unimportant fluctuations. The total bulnes"s
done aggregated 1,792,000. of which the St.
Paul, Chicago and Missouri River fives con
tributed 139,000 and the Ohio Southern in
comes 121.000. Minneapolis and St. Louis sec
onds rose 2K to 52K; North Pacific terminals, 2

Ripe currants are to the fore in good supply.
New potatoes are drifting downward. Cabbage
is slow at nominal prices. At the B. & O. sta
tion 300 crates of cabbage were refused by com
mission men to-day. A leading jobber of but
ter, eggs and cheese reports trade as good all
She week nntil to-day, when it is quiet. Said
he: "April was the only month this year which
showed a falling off in our line. Last year was
our best year by S5,000 in totals. The first half
of this year is ahead of the corresponding
period of '88, and this in face of the fact that
the stuff we handle is 20 to 25 per cent lover in
price." Home-raised strawberries are not as
plenty as f ot a week past. Black-cap raspber
ries, home-raised, have put in their first ap
pearance within a day or two. Constant rains
the past week or twohave bad tbe effect not
only of keeping back stuff, but bringing garden
products to markets in poor shape.

Coffee options more than lost the ground re
covered from Saturday's drop. The drift at
this date is downward. A leading jobber said
to-day: "Markets in our line are at the mercy
of nnscrnpulous speculators. Supply and de
mand bas at this date little to do with markets.
While visible supply of coffee is sufficient for
all wants, prospects for incoming crop are bad.
The late rise has been in the main speculative"
Sugars are firm enough to go higher, and job
bers are looking for a rise
