The figures in the accompanying report
show that the Pennsylvania Railroad has
resumed business at the old stand. Through
shipments of cattle last week were the
smallest for years, the total being only 150
head. 'Washouts from the Conemaugh to the
Susquehanna led Western shippers, who In or
dinary times take the Pennsylvania route, to
send their stock by the Baltimore and Ohio or
the Sew York Central.
Sow that traffic is opened on the Pennsylva
nia Railroad, shippers are returning to their
first love. While local receipts of cattle are
340 head short of last week, markets have not
improved. The bnlk of receipts were common
Grades. The few light, smooth, well-fatted
butcher cattle that showed up held their own,
liut all low grades and heavj -weights Mere slow
and a shade lower thau last eck.
The general averace ot cattle received this
week was below par. The few on band suita
ble to this market were steady at Ian week's
prices, hut this was due more to short supply
than any improvement in live stock trade. Ibe
run ot sheep and lambs was lighter this week
than for many months past. On all choice
grades markets are 20c to Sue higher than they
wereaMeeK ago. Common grades give no
signs of improvement. Hogs are in light sup
ply, and are firm at an advance.
The range to-day for light smooth Yorkers
is H 70 to J4 SO. Heavy Philadelphias are sell
ing at SI tO and mediums at SI 65. The outside
mice of light packing hogs at C hicago to-day
S4 65. The outside rate at Liberty is 15c
abovo this figure, but top grades are better at
the former place than the latter. Markets for
hog products are stronger and higher at Chi
cago tban here, a fact which Is outoftne
usual order. Pittsburg is a poor market this
season for hog products, and some of our pack
ers have found it profitable to sell their prod
ucts at the Western metropolis of late. Fol
lowing is the report of the week's transactions

A leading jobber of woolens reports the
month of June as a disappointment in his line,
owing to continual rains. Said he: "This
month is usually our most active time for light
colored goods. We laid in our regular supply
for this line of goods, but, from present ap
pearances, I am afraid we will have to hold
some over for another season. But, as an offset
to the small sales of light-colored goods, we
have sold an extra quantity of dark goods this
month. Though the summer's trade is ell ad
vanced, there is still time to unload our light
colored woolens, if only the weather prophet
will be propitious. We have not done as well
for June as we calculated on, but for the first
half of 1SS9 our volume of business was fully
15 percent better than tor the corresponding
peuod of last year. ,
About the only change in prices of onr mate
rial is tliat low priced worsted goods have ad
vanced. In the late tariff revision the duty on
this grade of goods was advanced 10 per cent.
The duty on fine woolens is close to 73 per cent,
Notwithstanding this the cheapness of labor in
the Old World, together with patient, plodding
industry of workmen there, enables foreign
manufacturers to send their goods to this mar
ket and successfully compete with our home
manufacturers. .Domestic woolens arc last
approaching the imported article in quality,
cut the expense of bringing domestics up to
the high standard is such that the imported
goods manage to keep the lead."

Wheat Less Active and Lower on Bearish
Reports From Russia nnd the North
west Corn Dropi a Frac
tion Onts Steady
Chicago The wheat market to-day was
less active on the whole than yester
day. A good business was transacted dnrlng
the early Dart of the session, but after that
ruled more quiet. Prices ruled lower and the
advance of yesterday was lost. The opening
was fully IQlJc lower for the various futures
than yesterday's closing, and after some fluct
uation sold off c more, reacted slightly
and closed easy and Uo lower for July, 2c
lower for August and 2c lower for December
than the closing figures of yesterday.
The break in prices was largely due to the
belief that the greater part of the short inter
est at the lower prices was covered, and to a
desire on the part of some of the longs to re
alize. There was something of an impression
that some of the heavy longs had taken advan
tage of yesterday's bulge to selL Advices wero
received reporting ram in Russia, and this
helped to create weakness. From the North
west bad news regarding the crop prospects
were received, but these were offset to some
extent by good reports from the winter wheat
A moderate trade was reported In corn, most
ot the business being transacted during the first
half of the session, after which the'market be
came quiet. The market opened He under the
closing prices of jesterday, was easyand gradu
ally declined c, rallied a little and closed M
a lower than yesterday.
In oats a good business was transacted, and a
lower range of prices recorded. The feature of
the trading was an increased demand to change
contracts from July to September.
Trading was quite active in mess pork, and
the feeling was somewhat unsettled and prices
irregular. Early the feeling was firmer, and
prices were advanced 2j6Sc; later prices re
ceded 1520c Toward ;he close the feeling
was steadier, and prices rallied 57c and
closed comparatively steady.
Rather more was done in the lard market,
and it was steadier early in the day. Prices
ruled 2X5c higher. Later the feeling was
easier, and the greater portion of tho advance

market for short rib sides. Prices were ad

There was a better feeling and a larger move
ment in the real estate market yesterday than
on any previous day this week. Besides the
sales reported, which are noted elsewhere, there
wero several large transactions, tho particulars
of which were withheld. One of these involved
the sale of an AUeghenyresidence, presumably
on Lincoln avenue, for a price approximating
SlOaOCa The gentleman from whom this
information was obtained said: "I expect
to see a controversy over this sale as to whether
the prico paid was above or below the market."
Somewhere in lower Allegheny a large build
ing site changed bands at about 590,000. It is
situated between two fine residences, and will
be built on this season. AuotherTeport was of
the salo of five acres of unimproved land be
tween Hawkins and Braddock. It is under
stood it will be subdivided.
The last rumor encountered was to the effect
that several acres near the reservoir ot the
Wilkinsburg waterworks bad been sold for
about S8U0 an acre. A lot atBaum's Grove
changed hands at $5,000, and a lot in the Moore
Slan, Oakland avenue, brought 5S0 a front foot,
everal mortgages were placed, the two largest
being lor SiaoOO and 85,000. The depression of
the real estate interest, of which mention has
been made, seems to have begun and ended at
the same time.
One of the avowed objects of the Sugar Trust
when it was introduced to tho public was "to
develop the sugar-making interest in this coun
try." The immediate result of it has been to
advance prices to the consumer about 20 per
cent A Wilkinsburg lady remarked to me
yesterday: "I will not be able to put up much
fruit this season, sugar is so high. It is ten
pounds for a dollar to-day, against 12 pounds
two weeks ago, and 15 last winter. I wonder
what the cause is?"
The hasn't read the papers carefully and
didn't know of the existence of the Sugar
Trust, and I told her as much. "There is no
trust about it," she rejoined; "they want cash
Enough of the stock of the Bachelor Hall
Company has been placed to assure the success
of the project. The charter Is being drawn np
by a well-known attorney, send will be for

pected that work on the building will begin
about September L Several of the rooms have
been spoken for already. Shonld it prove a
financial success several others ot a similar
character will be put up next year.
Work on the Fifth avenuo extension is pro
ceeding as rapidly as possible. Tne Llgonicr
block pavement makes a handsome appearance,
and seems to possess every requisite for solidity
and durability. The ease with which repairs
can be made is greatly in its favor. The im
provement has already been of great advan
tage to property in the vicinity, showing that
values and good streets are intimately asso
ciated. Although quotations on iron have not been
advanced, the market this week is firmer on
account of an increase of orders, giving rise to
a more buoyant feeling. The advance on pig
of 50 cents a ton by the Thomas Company is ex
pected to have a good effect on the trade.
Stocks are light, and they will be further re
duced during the July shut-down for repairs
and the settlement of the wage question. This
will tend to "Strengthen prices and put the
market in good shape for the autumn trade,

The stock market was more active yesterday
than for some time, but the feeling was weak,
and bids were in moat cases a shado under
those of the day before. The sales were 460
shares, of which Electric contributed 225 and
Philadelphia Gas 135. The latter was the only
stock among tho gassers that showed any
This was due to the fact that there were a
few urgent orders for it and very little on the
market. While it showed no special change ih
quotations, the anxiety to obtain it and the
hesitation with which It was offered showed
that there was a firmer feeling behind it
Electric sold at a concession. The quantity
brought out on a bid of 47 was a surprise to
some who had maintained there was very little
of it for sale under 5a It closed at 41 asked.
Tho postponement of the stockholders' meet
ing until July 11 was a strong point for tho
bears. The tractions were also weaker. Cen
tral offered at 32K, with a sale of 50 shares.
In the afternoon it was hammered down to
31. and just before the close sold at 31J. A
small lot of Citizens Traction went at W. In
the last hour 52 was the best offer for Pitts
burg. Switch and Signal was a trifle stronger, but
neglected. There was an offer of for 100
shares of La Noria, but it was not forthcoming.
It cannot be bought in quantities under S2.

First Day nt tho Petroioum Exchange Under
the New Rules.
Trading in futures began at the Petroleum
Exchange yesterday. The new system was
readily accepted and caused very little con
fusion among the traders. It worked as well
as its friends had expected, and caused a mani
fest improvement in the feeling on the floor.
Trading was moderate and of a miscellaneous
character, but better, it was maintained, than
it wonld have been under the old plan so soon
after one of the most exciting episodes in the
history of the trade.
The market opened at 91Jc, seller July. Un
der the influence of liberal offers it soon rallied
and sold np to 92c between which point and
92c the market fluctuated until the afternoin,
when it was seized with a spasm of weakness
and declined to 91c, from which it gradually
recovered and reached 92c. It receded in the
last few minutes and closed at 91Kc, regular
There were neither sales nor bids further
ahead than July. On several occasions there
were sales and bids of cash oil at the same
price as the July option. In the afternoon
there were a nnmoer of sales of cash oil, and
also of oil deliverable to-day, at the same price
as July. In fact the difference between cash
and July was inappreciable. The market closed
steady. Wednesday's clearings were ktSOO.OOO
barrels. There was no important field news.

New York, June 27. The stock market to
day was even more qniet than that of yester
day, and the fluctuations were ia everything,
except one or two stocks, oh a par with the
business done. Thero was a firm feeling
throughout the day until toward the cl6se,
when the entire market weakened, and the re
sult of tne day's trading is that most of the list
is small fractions lower than last evening.
There was some. weakness apparent at the
opeulng, the result principally of the discour
aging dispatches from the West and the
apathetic attitude of London, but the marke
immediately displayed Its underlying streneth
and quotations were advanced all over the list
on a very moderate volume of business.
Of the stocks of the regular list only St
Paul, Reading. New England and Atchison
displayed any animation, and of the four. New
England alone fluctuated over a range of as
much as 1 per cent Their course was an ex
ample of the entire list moving upward from
the opening and reaUiing the highest prices
generally before noon, after which time they
were held very steady until the last hour, when
they yielded rather sharply, and declined to
below the opening prices. There were further
engagements of gold for Europe to-day by Sat
urday's steamers, and this, with the poor show
ing made by the earnings of the Erie and Read
ing, had much to do with the late weakness in
the list The trusts were still active, but their
movements were on a much smaller scale tban
usual of late, and the fluctuations were also
made within a comparatively narrow range,
the final results being insignificant in all of the
A new candidate for favor was introduced,
however, the Distillers' and Cattle Feeders'
Trust which, after opening at 44. declined to
44 and afterward rose rapidlv to 47. only to
decline to 45J at the close. In the regular list
Wisconsin Central was next listed and was
traded In between 24 and 2 closing at 2
Lead Trust was most active and was depressed
by the denial of the aamlssion-of the Atlantic
works into the trust, but the friends of the
stock steadily asserted that the de.il would be
accomplished and a full recovery took place.
The market at the close was dull and heavy at
fractional losses for the day.
Railroad bonds were quiet and steady, the
sales of all Teaching 51,777,000. The market
was generally firm. St Paul, La Crosse and
Davenport rose 2, to 107; Hocking Valley 2,
to 63. Ohio. Indiana and Western seconds
declined 5, toSS.

Tunis Labee was hanged in the county jail
at Paterson, N. J., yesterday morning for the
murder of his wife. The murderer wrote a
farewell letter in which he forgave everybody,
and expressed the hope that everybody would

salvation, as he thought be was too great a
sinner to be forgiven. He slept well, and
showed no signs of fear or excitement on the

Tho Horth Orrman Gazette renewed its at
tack upon Switzerland yesterday. It charges
that bwitzerland promotes tne dissemination
of social democratic ideas among the young

the reply of M. Droz. the Swiss Foreign Minis
ter, to the recent interpellation of the National
Rath, in which be declared that under no cir
cumstances would Switzerland share with any
power the right to police her own territory was
inadequate and unsatisfactory. It says, how
ever, that the reply of the Bundesrath to the
complaints made br Russia and Austria was
more polite and less polemio tban was expected
from the wording of the interpellation.
Attorney General Miller has given an opin
ion to the Secretary of the Treasury that a na
tional bank cannot be lawfully established in
that part of the Indian Territory lying within
the jurisdiction of the Union Agency, which
extends over the country occupied by the five
civilized tribes, viz: the Chcrokees, Creeks,
Seminoles, Choctaws and Cbickasaws, not
withstanding the bank directors shall be citi
zens of the United States. The question arose
on an application for authority to organize a
national bank at Muscogee, a town in the Ter
ritory of the Creek Nation. The legal objec
tions thereto, according to the Attorney Gen
eral, grow out of the treaties now in force be
tween the United States and the Creek Na
tion, whereby the national banking Ian s can be
put In operation in that Territory only by
Some time ago tho Treasury Department
was informed that it was desired to take a
number of Chinese laborers to the West Indies,
and application was made to take them through
United States territory in transit provided
bond was given that none of them would remain
in this country. The matter was referred to
the Solicitor of the Treasury, and he gave an
opinion that there was nothing in the law to
prohibit the landing of Chinese for the mere
purpose of passing throngh the country. Sec
retary Winuom, however, was not prepared to
change existing relations to this extent and di
rected a rejection of the application until the
question could be considered more thoroughly.
No farther action on tho subject is at all likely,
however, as it is understood that arrangements
have been since made with Canadian transpor
tation companies by which the Chinese will be
taken across the continent without the neces
sity of entering United States territory.

THE LIGGETT APPEAL.
Bringing Up the Values of Property on Two
The appeal of the Liggett estate from the
val nation placed upon their property on
Smithfield street by the City Assessors was
heard before Judges Collier and Slagle yes
terday. The property was assessed at $2,800
per foot. It was held that this was too high,
and not in proportion witn the assessments on
property on Fifth avenue, where, between
Smithfield and Market streets, tho assessment
is $2,850 per foot, though the property is of
greater value. M. A. Woodward, Esq, ap
peared in behalf of tho Liggett estate. Assist
ant City Attorney Carnanan represented the
assessors. Mr. Carnahan took the ground that
the assessment was not in excess of the real
value of the property. The owners had stated
to the assessors that they would not accept
that price for the -property if selling It The
decision was withheld.
In the matter of tho appeal of Andrew W.
Mellon from the assessment on property in the
Ninth ward, the valuation was reduced. The
land was assessed at S29.520, which the Court
held to be reasonably fair, and allowed to
stand. The valuation on the buildings, how
over, was thought to be excessive, and was re
duced one-half. Seven three-story brick
bouses, one three-story carriage house and a
stable had been assessed at 312,500, which was
reduced to $6,250.

by His Wife.
A divorce was granted yesterday in the case
of Ben F. Ablr.of the Twenty-first ward,against

wife. He was married in 1833 when he was 18
years of age. His bride was a widow aged 23
years, with two children. Mrs. Able, so her
husband says, did not treat him kindly. When
he wonld come home from workhe got nothing

the table while she would be out. He gave
his pay to his wife, and sometimes she would
give him SI for spending money, and when he
needed clothes, S5. One month he bought a
oairof pants out of his pay before giving her
his money. She abused him and tried to tbrow
tbe pants and his violin In the lire She often
threw dishes at him, once threw a butcher
knife at him and tried to shoot him. She onlv
gave him abuse when he remonstrated with
her for going with other men. He left her a
short time ago and sued for divorce.

DISOWNED HER N.13IE,
And n a Result Harriet Knox's Will U
An argument was heard in the Orphans'
Court yesterday in the case of the contest of
the will of the late Mrs. Harriet Knox, of
Winebidale avenue. The contestant of the
will is Mrs. Knox's husband. After the couple
were married they did notliVehappilytogether,
and finally separated. When Mrs. Knox was
ou her death bed she made her will, leaving all
her property to a sister. She bad never for
given her husband, and she disliked his name
so much that she refused to bear it and signed
the will simply "Han-let." She also provided
in her will that her tombstone was to have in
scribed on it only the name "Harriet."
The will was filed for probate and the hus
band at once commenced a contest. His main
point was that the will is no will at all, aa it is
not signed, the name Harriet attached not
being a signature. The case was argued before
Judge Over yesterday. Attorney Jennings ap
pearing for Mr. Knox, and Attorney Thorp for
the will. No decision was rendered.
