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
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.

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
More interest was manifested in short rib
sides, and prices ruled 57c higher.

A Pittsburg Man Gives His Views on
the Speculative Craze.
Old-Time Architects and Builders Scored bjr
a Market Street Merchant.
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
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.

Financiers Satisfied With the Situation A
pood Prospect Abend.
There was a fair demand for discounts at the
leading banks yesterday, and rates were steady
at 56 per cent on call and time. 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

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. There was in general a firm tone,
however, and most issues are slightly higher
tbis evening, and few of the active bonds made
material changes from their last reported
sales. Hocking Valley sixes rose 4, to 61:
Cedar Falls and Minneapolis firsts 3. to 77;
Missouri Pacific thirds 2, to 120; South Caro
lina seconds 5 to 55K: Toledo, Ann Arbor

Never within the recollection of those best
informed have there been so many homeless
people in London. After midnight they can
be seen lying about on the streets,, in alleys
and in all sorts of out-of-the-way places. In
'such of the parks as are kept open, and on the
embankment, the seats are all uncomfortably
crowded by these homeless wretches trying to
sleep, and so great is the rush for seats that
they are all pre-empted soon after dark,
although sleep at such places must be out the
question for several hours after.

lings will be liable to tax as brandy.
There has been no change in the Indian
trouDle on Flathead Reservation. Captain
Sloan's company of Montana militia is at
Jocko, to which point 1,000 rounds of ammuni
tion were sent on the Captain's order. Colonel
Lawson. of fort Missoula, has gone to the
scene with three companies of the Twenty-fifth
Infantry and rations for three days. A dis
patch from Jocko says that the Indians shot by
the Sheriffs posse dlod yesterday, and that the
situation grows more serious. Indians from
, various parts of the reservation are flocking to
the scene of trouble. Tbo greatest alarm is
felt for the settlers' who live on the borders of
the reserve. Three hundred Indians are
camped near Ravilli, and swear they will not
give up the murderers, whom the Indian police
and half-breeds are concealiug. The Sheriff is
determined to bavo them, and if be makes
another trial a battle will surely ensue.
The reports of wreckage washed ashore on
Nantucket, which bave been coming along
lor tho past three or four days, are reinforced
by a dispatch from Gloucester, in which Cap
tain Carlston, of the schooner Annie C. Holly,
reports that he has seen a large number of
drowned cattle afloat east of Sable Island and
near Capo Sable during the past two weeks;
The steamer Victoria, which left a week ago,
ana of wnose safety doubts have been ex
pressed, was loaaeu witn cattle; but "during
tho past two vt eeks' is no sort of a description
of the time of which she could have lost them.
Some of her bills of lading, with a lot or gilt
mountings and window sashes, have floated
ashore on Nantucket. Tho Victoria had two
deck loads of cattle for Avonmouth and shotfld
liavo been off Nantucket last Thursday, and if
she bad come to serious grief there the car
casses of her cattle should be afloat there. It
is believed that icebergs are responsible for'
whatever wrecks may bave occurred.
A mob went to the jail at SheppaTdsvilie,
Bullet countv, Ky., and demanded of Jailer
Bowman the surrenderor Thomas Mitchell and
Charles ArdelL who were confined there
charged with the murder of a peddler named
Joseph Lavine. Jailer Bowman refused to sur
render the men, and took bis stand in front of
tne door with a shntgun, declaring be would
kill the first man who tried to pass. Mrs. Bon
man, bearing tbo threats, and fearing teat her
husband would be killed, ran forward and gave
them the keys, begging Mr. Bowman not to
provoke them. The leaders then unlocked the
doors and went to the cell where the prisoners
were confined. The jailer followed, begging
them at least to spare Mitchell, who, he be
lieved, was Innocent. Tbey yielded to his en
treaties, telling Mitchell be might thank Mr.
Bowman for his life, and, binding Ardell, took
him to the woods. The men all Wore masks,
and it is believed that they have banged Ardell
near the town, though nothing further has yet
been heard about the matter.

DrjBooiIs Market.
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

A Remarkable Experience.
Mr. H. 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."
