THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26, 1889.
Pork Packers Find Kotbing Bright in
the Present Situation.
A BETTER TOKE TO BEEADSTDFPS.
Some Items of Interest on the Leather
LIFE STOCK IS BOWS TO HAED PAN.
Office or Jittsbtjbo Dispatch, l
TUESDAY. June 25, X8S9.J
A representative of one of our leading
pork packing firms Baid to-day: "Pittsburg
is one of the poorest markets of the country
in our line. We could sell pickled hams in
Chicago a full Jc higher than we can here,
and I would be glad if our entire product
was in the "Western metroplis. Our expenses,
taxes, etc., show no signs of decline, but
rather the reverse, and at the same time we
are getting less for our products than for a
number of years. The truth is hogs have
beea too high all the past season to afford
any margin to packers. "While we havl
found it best to buy at Chicago, we can now
do better to sell our products there. The
market for our product is limited to a certain
territory, while Chicago has the world for
its field. A provision buyer naturally goes
to the Western metroDOlis for bis goods, and
the result is that nnces are better maintained
there than here or anywhere west of the sea
board. Our firm has recently sold large quan
tities of stock at Chicago to better advantage
than we could have done at home."
Tanners' Bark Mast Go.
With all the improvements of late years in
the tanning industry, there has been nothing
discovered to take the place of bark in furnish
ing a liqnld for the vat. The tannic acid en
gendered by the dissolution of the oak and
chestnut bark is still a prime necessity, as it
was ages ago. A recent talk with a representa
tive of one of onr leading Arms, engaged in
the manufacture of harness leather, elicited
"As the tune approaches when onr native
forests will be cleaned out, efforts are being
made to supply the place of bark with extracts.
Already there are lactones at Staunton and
Huntington, W. Vi, and Olean, X. Y where
bark extracts are prepared for shipment to the
various centers of this industry. The cost of
freiebfon bark, which is a bulky article, has
come to be an important item in the cost ol
leather manufacturing in these days of close
margins. Our tanners here do not as yet use
much of the bark extract, as we are near
enough the Virginia forests to justify us in
paying freight on bark.
"But we all feel that the time is not far away
when the bark extract will be generally used
instead of bark. In Europe and New England
there is little hark used by tanners. Ultimately
we will have to come to this here. It is only a
question of time. Already our tanners are
using extract in small amounts, and the drift
of the leather-making art is in the direction of
the universal use of the extract in preference
to the bark. There is, however, mnch 3 et to
learn in the proper preparation of the extract,
and its prober use w hen prepared. The large
tanner has not yet learned now to gauge the
extract, and pnt the proper amount in the vat.
as he knows from long training the exact
quantity of bark reqnired to produce the right
result. It will come. Low ever, before long,
when we will have to do as they do in old set
tled countries, and learn how to make leather
with bark extracts.'
An old-time drover who furnishes cattle at
flerr's Island yard, said to-day: -'Last week
was the worst in our line this year, and, in fact,
for several years. On the two carloads of cat
tle I had for sale I lost S6S. But this week there
Is an improvement. We did not have to pav as
much for cattle in Chicago, and, while prices
were a shade off from last week, there was a
small margin of profit. Margins have been
close all this year, and it required close watch

The current number of the Minneapolis
Hitter finds some crumbs of comfort in the
wheat and flour situation. It reports a sharp
advance in winter wheat sections, owing to
constant rainy weather, and in spring wheat
sections for the opposite reason, namely a lack
of moisture. Unfavorable reports of European
weather, particularly in Russia, which took
America's place last season in supplying West
ern Europe with breadstuffs, have also served
to stimulate flour markets. At all milling
points the demand for cash wheat of the right
grade has very much improved the past week
or two. The result is alreadv felt here, as flour
jobbers are much firmer in their views and are
selling more freely than at any time this sea
son. It seems that flour has touched bottom
and the present drift is upward.

Bad Crop News nt Home nod Abroad Booms
the Wheat Olarket Corn and Oats
Firm and Higher Hob Prod
uct Somewhat Active
Chicago "Wheat was active and higher to
day. The feeling developed was decidedly
strong and the advance was steady and sharp
from the opening. The shorts covered freely,
and the market presented more lire and ani
mation than for some days past. June closed
2c higher. July opened a .higher and ad
vanced 2c more, was held firmly and closed 2c
f higher than yesterday. The deferred futures
shared in the improvement, and prices were
advanced ltyic above yesterday's closing,
and closed strong.
The principal Influence on which the advance
was supposed to have been established was the
abundance of bad crop news from European
countries, as well as the United States. The
crops of Russia and Hungary were reported to
be very poor. Cables were firm. From the
Northwest came conflicting reports; some ad
vices report the wheat not heading out well and
others say the lookout is good: Some reports
of rust were beard of in some sections South
and Southwest and also that the crop in many
sections had been exaggerated.
Speculation had as much to do with the rise
as the influences mentioned. The shortage no
doubt is large and the short interest under the
recent action of the market disposed' to cover,
fearing that the movement of new wheat might
be delaved so as to give the longs a chance for

In oats a firmer feeling was noticeable, espe
cially on the more deferred futures, which were
bought by the shorts. The bulk of the strength
was dne chiefly to the advance in corn and

mess pork, and the market was stronger.

A General Movement Among Work
ingmen to Acquire Homes.
STOCK DEALERS LOOK FOE A RALLY
Confidence as Business Capital Illustrated
by a Local Incident
HOW GOLD IS C0DNTED AND WEIGHED
A notable feature of the real estate market
is the large number of workingmen who
have purchased or are in quest of cheap lots.
This fact being brought to the notice of a
Fourth avenue agent yesterday, he re
"This feature of the market is not new to
me. I have been aware of it for some time.
Fully one-half of my sales are to this class
of people. In many cases they pay cash,
and afterward arrange for houses on tittle.
A workingman with a home of his own may
be said to be well fixed. He is then, to a
certain degree, his own master. I am glad
to. see this movement With the working
element thoroughly identified with the city,
its future is safe.
"A man with property interests is always
conservative on economic questions. This
effort of the bone and sinew of the commun
ity to acquire homes should be enconraged to
the utmost. To them banks and land owners
should be as lenient as possible."
Confidence is the life of business. I was dis
cussing this subject with a well-known gentle
man yesterday one who has been honored Dy
his fellow-citizens with several positions of
trust in the municipal government when a
young man, who was neatly dressed and of
pleasant appearance, crossed the street and en
tered a bank. "There is a case in' point," re
marked my friend. "His success in life is en
tirely due to the fact that myself and one or
two others had confidence in him." ''The story
isnodonht interesting, and as it may point a
moral, I would like to have it."
"It is short'" responded the gentleman, "but
full of encouragement for young men who are
making aji honest effort to establish themselves
in business. I had known tho family of which
he is a member for some time, but had no par
ticular knowledge of the young man. One day
about five years ago he came to me and re
quested a private audience, during which he
laid his plans before me. He had a strong de
sire, he said, to better his condition by engag
ing in mercantile pursuits, and begged my
assistance to the extent of indorsing for him to
the amount of 500. I gave him no decided
answer, but requested him to call again in a
few days. I was favorably impressed with his
appearance, and frank, outspoken manner. I
at once set to work to investigate his character
and ascertain his business qualifications, both
of which I found were good. I then broached
the subject to a couple of my friends, told them
.the result of my investigations, and requested
their co-operation in the matter. This they
willingly assented to, and the indorsement was
"What was the resultr
yThe yonng man went into business and pros
pered. He canceled bis obligation to us lu less
than a year. We offered to lend him our
names whenever he needed money, but he de
clined with thanks, saying he could get along
without it. He has a reputation for honesty
second to that oi no other man in the city. He
does everything on the square. I was not mis
taken in my man. But for the confidence he
inspired in me he might to-day be filling a
clerkship or some other subordinate position
at a low salary."
This little story, which has the merit of being
true, conveys a lesson to young men which
they should carefully ponder. Integrity is cap
ital, A character for honesty once established,
success, sooner or later, is sure to follow.
The clerks at one of the leading banks were
engaged for some time yesterday in the pre
sumably agreeable work of counting gold coin,
apropos of which the cashier, who was looking
on, remarked: "Generally we count our gold
but for special purposes we weigh it In
counting we throw out all the pieces that are
defaced by wear. Gold, as well as silver, we
weigh twice a year, when the directors take
stock. They fill a bag with J20 pieces,
amounting in the aggregate to 5,000, and
weigh it. All other bags containing a like
amount must weigh the same, or the shortage
must be made good. At the last count two
bags fell $20 short This was occasioned by the
presence of a number of pieces that had been
in circulation so long that the milling had al
most entirely disappeared.
"In foreign countries gold is Invariably
weighed and every imperfect piece rejected. A
large proportion of the gold and silver coin in
circulation in this country is soabiaided by use
that it would hardly be looked at on the conti
nent England is a little more liberal in this
respect, but even there coins that are the least
worn are regarded with disfavor."
The firmness and activity displayed by stocks
in New York afford encouragement to local
speculators, one of whom remarked yesterday
"The revival of the speculative interest in
New York will, in my opinion, have a good ef
fect upon our local securities. Although they
have been neglected for some time, they are in
good shape, and a few good-sized buying orders
would give them a whirl. There is no good
reason why they shonld be in the rut. They
are as sound as a dollar, representing first-class
in terests, which will improve in value as they
"At present prices I think most of them are
good investments. Electric and the tractions
will pay big dividends as soon as they get firmly
on their feet"
As showing the Irresistible force of the im
mense volume of water that issued from the
South Fork dam, a gentleman who witnessed
the incident told me yesterday that it struck
a rock almost as big as a two-story house, that
was partly embedded lu the earth," and carried
it a distance of nearly a quarter of mile, where
it lodged against a large tree. It plowed a
deep furrow, and demolished everything in its
course. No wonder, therefore, that bouses,
bridges, trees and everything else gave way be
fore this tremendous display of power.
DULL AND STEADY.
Only a Small Movement In Stocks Orders
Below ilio Marker.
The stock market yesterday showed no im
provement over that of th e previous day. Only
three of the favorites received attention in the
forenoon, the sales of which were 156 shares.
They were Electric, Switch and Signal and
Central Traction. There were no sales in the
afternoon, and figures were almost as scarce as
business. There was neither news nor gossip
of importance, and prices were practically the
same as have ruled for some time.
There were orders for Switch and Signal at
23, and for Electric at 49X. Philadelphia Gas
was the strongest stock on the list, being held
at SS, with 37 bid in the afternoon. Bids.

Quiet Ecturns to tbo Oil Exchange Only
There was a calm at the Oil Exchange yester
day, presenting a strong contrast to the storm
which swept over it the day before. But while
quiet by comparison, the market was both
strong and active. The fluctuations were
small and rapid, affording the scalpers a good
opportunity to turn an honest penny. The
sales were not far from 2,000,000, agaist 3,606,000
the previous day.
Tho market opened feverish at 91c, and in a
short time sold np to 91Je, the highest point of
the day. It then weakened and sold down to
89c, around which figure it hung for some
time, with fluctuations of only a few points
either way. In the afternoon It made a dash
for the dollar line, but stooped at 91Kc, vacil
lated between that point and 89c for a f ow
minutes, and closed firm at 91c.
Monday's panic fortunately resulted in only
one lay-down, and that was for less than $3,000.
It was not the fault of the broker, but of some
of his customers, who failed to come up with
their marcins. It is the general belief that he
will mako a prompt settlement and resume his
place on the floor. Trading in futures will
Tho cause ot the flurry was generally at
tributed to the change in the system of trading,
bnt that was denied yesterday. A broker ex
plained it thus: "It was more of an accident
than anything else, and might have happened
any time within a month. When oil reached
89c and none was offered the shorts lost their
heads. They had to have the stuff and were
willing to pay almost any price for it. A good
many of the brokers wero at dinner about the
timo the fun set in, and the few traders around
tho ring wero either unable or unwilling to sup
ply the demand. Indeed, they had no time to
do much of anything, so qnickly did it all hap
pen. In my opinion there was no reason at all
for the panic"
The report from New York that the pro
ducers had closed out the 3,500,000 reserve to
the Standard was not generally credited on
change yesterday. There was no confirmation
of the deal here, and nothing was known about
it at Oil City. ADrokersaid: "As the option
does not expire until July 1,1 do not see why
the producers should be in such a hurry. By
holding on to it a week longer, as the v are en
titleo to do, they might get more than 90c. tho
guaranteed priee for It I do not believe, the-
Fentnres of the llnrkct.

THE BOOM JN TRUSTS
Continue nn Exciting; Feature of the Stock
Market Rnllrouds Coming: to the
Front A Flurry About Money
Only Fractional Cunngn.
New York, June 25. The stock market to
day was firmer and more active for railroad
shares and the trust were weak and feverish,
occupying a less prominent position in the
transactions, although they we're still extreme
ly active. The sales of lead again crossed the
100,000 mark. There was no news of import
ance to affect any portion of the market,
though the-rumor-of the absorption of the At
lantic Works by tho Lead Trust was again used
to advance the stock. Its fluctuations, how
ever, were on a much smaller scale than yes
terday, and after the first few minutes'
trading its tone was drooping and ratherweak.
Sugar, on the other hand, was weak from the
outset; and toward the close dropped to about
Satuiday's figures. In the general list the
speculative activity -was all in New England,
but while the stock was strong throughout
most of the day, there was but a fraction left of
the improvement at tho close. A small flurry
in money toward the dlose which sent the rale
on call np to 6 per cent, had much to do with
the reaction at that time, and all the strong
stocks of the forenoon yielded materially.
Pacific Mail becamo quite conspicuous at tbo
opening of business by its weakness, caused by
the report of the loss o( one of the company's
steamers, but when the market began to move
it recovered almost all of the loss from the
opening figure, though having opened down it

The opening was rather heavy and the first
prices were generally from Vi to J per cent
lower than last evening's figures, though a
good sign was the comparative strength shown
by the shares of the regular list and the de
crease In the animation among trusts. The
transactions in lead were again on a large scale,
however, and the fluctuations in sugar were
very wide and the gain of yesterday was lost
as quickly as it had been made. In the general
list the strength shown in Lackawanna, New
England and some others spread to the rest of
the market, though Pacific Mall was specially
weak. The. excitement In the trusts rapidly
died away and the fluctuations after the first
hour were made within a comparatively narrow-range.
The stocks of tho regular list continued
strong and prices slowly crept up, though
there was little animation outside of the few
leaders, until toward delivery hour, when the
realizations began and the market moved off
slowly. The close was qniet and fairly steady,
generally at small fractions better than the
opening prices. Sugar displayed the most ex
treme weakness in the last hour, however, and
dropped to 116, .though a portion of the loss
was recovered in the last few minutes. There
were sales of 151,536 snares of unlisted stocks,
of which Lead Trust furnished 110,275, sugar,
28,014, and Cotton Oil, 11,307, The final changes
are generally for fractions, but Pacific Mail is
There was the usual lack of feature in the
railroad bond market but the tone of the deal
ings was again strong, and except the Ohio, In
diana and Western firsts, which dropped 10 per
cent to 62, and the Kansas and Texas issues,
there was no weakness anywhere apparent.
The sales reached $1,553,000. to which the Ches
apeak and Ohio 5s contributed $189,000. Gal
veston, Harrisburg and San Antonio firsts rose
3 to 110, and Toledo, Ann Arbor and Grand

"Our trade is far from being satisfactory. As

head, and my hair all fell out, until I was en
tirely baldbeaded; it then broke out on my
arms and shoulders, until my arms were jusC
one sore. It covered my entire body, my face,
bead, and shoulders being the worst. Tha
white scabs fell constantly from my head,
shoulders, and arms; the skin would thicken
and be red and very itchy, and would crack and.
bleed if scratched. After spending many hun
dreds of dollars, I was pronounced incurable.
I h eard of the Cuticusa Remedies, and after
using two bottles of cuticura Resolvsst,
I could see a change; and after I had takes'
four bottles, 1 was almost cured: and when t
had used six bottles of Cuticura Resolvzst- ,
and one box of Cuticura, and one cake of
CuncUBA Soap, I was cured of the dreadful.
disease from which I bad suffered for fire
years. I thought the disease would leave a.
very deep scar, but the Cuticura Remedies
cured it without any scars. 1 cannot express
