COMMON, HEAVY CATTLE LOWEB. i Light, Smooth, Well Fatted Beeves Steady Uogs Advanced. .".. CHOICE SHEEP TrCOMMON A DEAG Oftice op Pittsburg Dispatch, -Ved E3DAT. June 26, 18e9. J The run of cattle was much lighter this -week than last, the total being 72 loads against 98 last week. A drop of 18 loads would, according to the eternal fitness of things, stimulate markets. But live stock trade this season has been an exception to all rules. Markets were steady at last week's prices on tidy, fat butcher cattle, eighing from L000 to 1,200 pounds. On com mon grades and prime heavy stock there was a drop of S to 10c. The highest price obtained was $1 20 tor prime 1,400 pound steers. There were more bujers on hand than last week, but not as many as were expected. There were no buyers of export cattle, and hence this grade was slow. Last week a rep resentative of a Baltimore firm saved markets on export cattle, but this week lacked in that redeeming feature. The bulk of receipts were common grades and heavy cattle, for which there was a poor market. Light, smooth, butcher stock, being in small supply, managed to hold their own. At noon to-day everything was closed ou but at concessions on all but the most desirable butcher stock. A few stockcrs were in the supplies, but failed to bring anything beyond 2 to 3c Prices at Chicago are lower this week than for some time past; Advices from the East were not at all favorable for cattle traders. "While the P. R. R. i now able to ship stock through, tho full benefit of this reopen ing of trade is not j et felt at Liberty. Since the Johnstown disaster much of the live stock trade which belongs to the Pennsyl vania Railroad system has been diverted to the New York Central and Baltimore and Ohio. Another week will restore tho trade to its wonted channel. sheep nnd Lainba. Supplies raised little from last week. Quality was below average. Good grades which were in a small minority were in active demand on an advance over last week's prices. Markets have been steadily Improving since the be ginning of the week, on choice grades. Some dealers report an advance of Si) to -10c on the best grades since Monday. Common stock fails to share in the improvement of markets. Prices for these low grades were a shade loner than last week, and slow at the decline. In general markets have been decidedly good for everything In the mutton line which filled the bill as to quality, but no good for common stock. Hoc. Supply has not been up to demand for light weights, and markets are 10 to 20c stronger than a week ago. The price of tops at Chicago to-day is 84 60, and at Liberty 54 SO. The difference is not justified by the difference in freight. About half this divergence would be the right thing. It will be difficult to hold up Liberty prices to their present figure when sufficient t.me elapses to receive hogs from Chicago. Our home packers complain that hog dealers at East Liberty have been too large in their view of pnees all this season, leaving to them little or no martin lor ham and lard. Br Telesraoh.

Rumors of Wnrllke Complications nnd a Better European Demand Give Wheat a Whirl Lnrjte Business and HlcbcrPricea All Round. Chicago Speculation again ran wild In the wheat pit to-day, and a large business was trans acted. Fluctuations in prices were rapid and violent, and a higher range was established. The openine for July was 5c higher than yesterday's closing, and the market eased off c, then rallied with some fluctuations 3c. re ceded la recovered asraln, advancing lc, ruled irregular and closed 3ic higher than yes terday. The deferred futures also were higher and ruled more activo than usual, closing l?c higher for August, IJfc higher for September and l?c higher for December. The influences governing the market were pretty much the same as yesterday, and the short interest cov ered freely. There was a great deal of long wheat reported sold on the early advance, and some short selling, no doubt, in expectation of a break. This caused the decline soon after the opening, but the subsequent advance again brought the early sellers in the market as buy ers, and created a very strong feeling. Foreign advices quoted a better demand and higher prices, and tho quantity on ocean pas sage showed a decrease ot 960,000 bushels. For eign securities were quoted lower, and there were some vague rumors of European war com plications. A moderate degree of activity was witnessed in corn, and the feeling developed was easier. The market was firm arouna tho opening, but as the session advanced offerings became quite heavy, and in absence of any support prices de clined jC. Oats opened fairly stronc, but later the de clino in wheat and corn caused a recession of Kc. and the market closed easy at about in side ngures. A good speculative trade was reported in moss pork, and the feeling was stronger. Prices were advanced 1517Jc, and the market closed steady. Only a fair business was transacted in lird. The feeling was stronger and prices ruled 2c higher. More interest was manifested in short rib sides, and prices ruled 57c higher.

Old-Time Architects and Builders Scored bjr a Market Street Merchant. OLD AKD NEW SYSTEMS C0NTEASTED The revival in the speculative interest, in which the sugar and lead trusts and petrol eum are taking the lead, is charged with a large share of the depression which has characterized real estate for the past few days. In support of this hypothesis a Fourth avenue agent said yesterday: "Ihe real estate market has been remark ably active all season, and only within the past few days has it given signs of quieting down. That this depression and the boom in oil and the trust stocks should come so close together is, to say the least, significant I think the boom has considerable to do with the depression. Profits on investments in lands and houses are sure, but they are slow. This does not suit a great many people. They can't wait. Dnzzled by visions of wealth quickly acquired by a few fortunate persons, they forsake a certainty for an un certainty, and risk their all on turn of a card, as it were. If it comes up right, they pocket the cash: if it comes up wrong, as is generaUy the case they are financially ruined. "A poor man, or one of-moderate means, with a family, cannot afford to do thls;but there are those who, in times of excitement like the present, forget their obligations to those de pendent upon them, and stake every cent they can raise upon stocks about which they have no personal knowledge, indeed very little of any kind, and whose movements they cannot con trol. They take the statements of interested persons, or judgo from the fluctuations, that the investment is a good one, and take the chances. Ihe result in nine cases out of ten is financial ruin. "Pittsburg people, as a rule, are not specially addicted to dabbling in unknown or doubtful securities, but sometimes they catch tho craze. It was so, 1 remember, in 1S76, when oil was on the rampage. Clerks, laborers, servant girls, indeed all classes and conditions of people, in vested every dollar they could command in the delusive commodity and sleeplessly awaited the result When tho turn came it was against them, and they had to pocket the loss. I am acquainted with several of these crushed speculators who feel the pinch to this day. The sugar and lead trusts, in which, I understand, considerable Pittsburg money has been in vested, are controlled by a clique who are able to manipulate the market to suit themselves, advaniiog or depressing prices whenever it suits their purposes. Just fiow these stocks are centers of attraction, but who can tell the day or the hour wnen the powers that work the wires will call a halt, and the magnificent prospect of speedy wealth which so many affect to see be dashed to pieces? A reaction must come, and it will leave many a victim to repent at leisure that he ever gave way to such folly." This is good advice. It comes from a man who knows the uncertainties and dangers of speculation, and would warn all within the range of his Influence to beware of it as a de lusion and a snare. In this connection it seems appropriate to state, what probably everybody knows, that speculation was the prime cause of all the financial crises through which this coun try has passed from 1837 down. What has been may be. It would be an unpardonable sin to imperil the bright prospects for legitimate business which are apparent in all sections of the country by Involving tho capital whicn will soon be needed to move the crops, build mills and factories, construct railroads and other wise expand the productive resources of the country in doubtful ventures which can have but one outcome bnancial and commercial stagnation and individual demoralization. Many"6f the business houses in Pittsburg are old-timers, bnilt 40 or 50 years ago, without- re gard to. light or ventilation. Some of them have been remodeled to conform to modern re quirements, but others are in the same condi tion, plus wear and tear, as when they came fresh from the hands of the builders. I entered ono of these relics of an age more utilitarian than the present yesterdayafternoon. I: is on Market street The shelves and coun ters were weighed down with a miscellaneous assortment of goods. A number of customers were present The light was dim and the air close and hot While expatiating upon the virtues of his wares, the proprietor made vigor ous use of a fan. When at leisure he remarked: "This is a hot day inhere. I have occupied this building for several years. When I moved into it I saw at once that it was not well adapted to business, aud spoke to the owner about re modeling it but he thought the cost would eat up the income, and refused. I have a long lease on it, and will make the improvement my self next year. I think it will pay me in the long run, as people don't like to deal where the surroundings are disagreeable; What idiots the old-time builders were. The value of light Aid ventilation seems never to have entered their minds. Shelves and counters for goods were of more importance to them than per sonal comfort They did good, honest work, but that is about all that can be said in their favor. Their ideas of interior arrangement were crude, almost barbarous. If I had the designer of this building here now I think I could soon show him where he was mistaken." This criticism of the architects and builders who plied their vocations in Pittsburg in the long ago is severe and in some respects unfair. They planned and built to suit the require ments of their time and not of this. Business methods have undergone many changes since they "hewed the shaft and laid the architrave." As they could not foresee these changes, they could make no provision for them. Men who fully meet the requirements of their day and generation do all that can be reasonably ex pected of them. This the old-time architects and builders undoubtedly did. ALMOST A FAILURE. Denllngs In Locnl Stocks Reduced to One Small Trnnsnctlon. Business at the Stock Exchange yesterday was restricted to the sale of 25 shares of Switch and Signal at 23, a decline.

Large ship ments of gold to France have caused some fears of stringency, but as they are growing smaller, and are expected to soon cease alto gether, this apprehension is not well founded. The probability Is that money will be abundant and easy all season. Depositing was above the average of tho past few weeks, and checking of good proportions. A Fifth avenue cashier remarked: "Busi ness Is in excellent shape for the season bet ter indeed than we expected under the circum stances, and away ahead of the same time last year. We have considerable money on hand, but not more than is necessary for the fall movement, which will begin in six weeks or two months." The exchanges were Jl.957,486 13 and the balances S278.973 00. Money on call at New York yesterday was easy at 25 per cent, last loan 2: closed offered at 2 per cent Prime mercantile paper, 3J5.

The Trusts Lead Oft at tho Opening, bat Lose Their Grip at tbo Clone Rnilroad Shares Receive More Atten tion Government Bonds Ball nnd Firm! NEtr York, Juno 28. The stock market to day was quite irregular In Its course, but final ly ended generally weak at fractional losses from last evening's figures. The trusts were again more active than the railroad shares in the forenoon, and decided weakness, and espe cially in sugar, which was sold heavily for the lone account, checked the natural rising tend ency of the general market and restricted the dealings to very small amounts. Opening prices were generally slightly higher than la6t evening's figures, but only Reading, which was freely supported by the pools, and Chicago and East Illinois common showed any strength in the early tradmg. The trusts at the time were very activo and feverish, while sugar was ex tremely weak'on tho rumor that the decision in the case of the North River Refinery would be handed down to-morrow, and would in all probability be unfavorable. It drooped to 113 from 117; last night, but after that there was a better feeling all around, and it rallied to the neighborhood of 115, risinglaterto 116, - There was little news upon the railroad situ ation and the regular list settled down to dull ness and Staguatidn, and the trusts alter the first excitement was over became compara tively dull and soon fell behind the stocks of tho regular list in point of activity. Toward noon more decided strength was developed in the market and Rock Inland became .the leader, rising over 1 per cent in which Improve ment the other Grangorr shared. Dullness was the principal feature of tho market, however, until delivery hour, when there was a batch of disquieting rumors from the West put out and at the same time tho approach of the 1st of July, with its heavy disbursements for Interest and dividends was -felt in the hardening tendency in money, the Tate on call going np to 6 per cent which precipitated another down ward movement, and Cotton Oil, which had been held up well during the day suddenly Rave way, and San Francisco preferred dropped 2 per cent on very light transactions. The entire list followed. New England lead ing the general list and all the advances of the forenoon were wiped ont and fractions in ad dition were lost The close was fairly active and generally weak. Of unlisted stocks there were sold 148.594 shares, of which the Lead trust furnished 84,727, Cotton Oil 35,060 and sugar 27,207. With tho exception of the loss of f'4. per cent In San Francisco preferred the nal changes in the regular list are for frac tional amounts only, with a large majority of declines, and in the unlisted department sugar is downSJK and cotton oil VA. Tho trading in railroad bonds amounted to only 960,000 to-day, and dnbnesswas the only feature.

New York, June 26. The market was un changed, but there was a stronger tone to some low grades cottons. In consequence of the advance in print cloths manufacturers are holding at 4c Cables of better demand from spinners and for market would have im proved rapidly bad not the July tenders caused the liquidation of the interest in that position. Notices are supposed to bave been issued for 15,000 bales which were taken up principally by parties holding export orders in hand from Liverpool and the Continent, to be shipped by the earliest steamers. Onr stock is about all the cotton there is in the United States and we expect a constant demand from SDinners and exporters until the new' crop begins to show some signs of coming to market. Tbis demand will take up all the available grades here and the demand has now begun upon low middling until now neglected. The market has a firmer undertone. Metal Mnrlict. New York Pig iron firm.

Robertson, a native of Scotland, but who has been a resident of this country for sev eral years, has beep a victim of kidney disease with the following symptoms: He had a heavy dragging pain across the small of his back, ex tending from one side to the other, and a bloat ed, dropsical condition of the bowels, high col ored urine, and he noticed that sometimes it contained a reddish, brick-colored sediment, and at other times the sediment was of a light ish color. He noticed that be felt very tired in tho morning, and as he gradually grew weaker, his stomach became affected. His appetite became poor, and he was constantly annoyed with sour eructations of gas from his stomach after eating, and on account of the kidneys not periorming tneir ianction properly, uu uiooa became charged with rheumatic poison, so that be had much pain about his shoulders and dif ferent parts of his body. As he became more emaciated he began to cough, and he felt much tightness and weight across his lungs. In speaking of the matter one day, he said: "I doctored with the best doctors I could hear of. but was fast getting worse. I became mel ancholy and thought 1 could not live. Finally I began treatment with the physicians of the Polypatbic Medical Institute, who are special ists for chronic diseases, and although confined to the bed when I commenced their treatment, my improvement was very rapid, and I have been entirely cured by these physicians, and I gladly sign my name. Hi Robertson." Anyone wishing to call upon Mr. Robertson, or write him with refcronce to his case, can have his full address by calling at THE POLY PATHIC INSTITUTE, 420 Penn ave.
