Tuesday. July 2. issa. J
The chief complaint of produce commis
sion men of last year was the great
abundance of stuff in all fruit and vegetable
lines. It seems that we are to bare another
season ot abundance. If natnre would be
less generous, both producer and dealer
would gather in more ducats, with a smaller
expenditure of labor. The consumer, how
ever, has no ground of complaint. The pro
ducer and dealer's losses are gain to the
millions who, after all, are the parties most
A Liberty street commission, merchant said
to-day: "We are' handling lots ot stuff, but
getting very llttloTor It. The trouble always Is
in prolific seasons, such as this Is, that we hare
to do a great deal of work and pet very little
for it Tbe farmer and dealer are doing
the work, and consumers get the benefit.
Take tbe one item of Dotatoes, wbicb have been
coming in so freely from Tennessee tbe past
week. Tbe freight charges on a barrel are not
less than 65 to 70 cents. I n the past few days
largo quantities have been dumped on the mar
ket, and are sold In car load lots on track at less
than S2 per ban el. When the dealer gets his
little commission and the railroads get the
freight there is little left for tbe man in Ten
nessee who ploughed, planted, gathered and
bauled the potatoes to the nearest station.
What Is Jtrue of potatoes Is equallj true of a
dozen other articles in fruit and t ege table lines.
The consumer is tbe only party who profits by
these seasons of abundance. Producer and
dealer are working more for glory than gain."
One of our leading perk packers reports to
day concerning the provision trade for June:
"My advices from Chicago, which is head
center of this trade for the United States, and
in fact far the world, are that the reduction of
provision stock In June was very slight. In
ordinary years June is one of the big months
for trade in this line, and usually stock is very
much diminished by the transactions of that
month. Tbe decline of stock uniformly stimu
lates prices, and tbe time is here when we have
a right to expect an advance in hog products.
But this season upsets all calculations. The al
most daily rain ol June no doubt bad an effect
in retarding trade, and a dry, hot July Mill
make up lor lost ground. Bat up to this time
our trade has been tar from satisfactory. The
fact is tbe price of hogs has been too high all
tbis season to afford any margin to packers.
Tbe only salvation for tbe trade will be a de
cided advance in hog products in tbe near
future. If this advance falls to show up, tbis
season will show little or no profit to Pittsbn-g
S ackers. The Chicago pork packer has found
eitcr pickings this season than is possible to
tbe Pittsburg packer."
Tbe flour rrade, which for a month or two
past was entirely in the buers favor, has for
some reason suddenly flopped over within the
past meek, and now the situation is decidedly
in favor of the seller. All of a sudden the
Minnesota millers have had their backbones
stiffened and have become very independent in
their views. Two weeks ago the millers of
Minneapolis were diligently searching for cus
tomers and pressing stock on our jobbers. Now
tbey are waiting lor customers to come to
them. Fancy spring patents were offered in
carload lots, in wood, as low as S3 50 within tbe
past two weeks. To-day tbe same cannot be
laid down bere under 6 05. Our whole
sale grocers have not changed prices, but
will tie forced to do so as soon as their
present supplies are exhausted. Bald one of
our leading flour jobbers: "Pittsburg markets
are among the very worst in the country.
When prices are low we are forced to take the
lowest figures, tint when there is an upward
movement we fail to reap the benefit of it, as
there are so many dealers here ready to un
load a: very small profits.
"In Chicago and Se York prices go up or
down at once on quotations from stock board.
But here in Pittsburg, while we suiter Irom
every decline.we fail to reap any benefit from
an advanca by reason of the sharp competition
among our dealers. Flour to-day is sold by
wholesale grocers at lower figures than stock
can be laid down at, and it is only a question of
time when'prices ot flour must advance."

A Good Speculative Movement at Culcaso
July Wheat TUsher, but Lnier Op.
tlonsLose Ground The Weath
er Still a Controll
CHICAGO A largo speculative business was
again transacted in wheat ana the feeling was
very unsettled. The course of prices was ir
regular. Some wide fluctuations occurred, es
pecially for July delivery. Tbe early market
was weak and opening sold at Ic decline as
compared with yesterday's closing, but good
buying at tbe decline started prices upward,
and July advanced 2Jc, then declined 2Vic, and
closed at lKc higher than yesterday. August,
advanced l&c above inside prices, receded Jc,
and closed c lower than yesterday. Decem
ber advanced lKc above Inside price, receded
Jic and closed He lower than yesterday.
The early weakness was due to reported rains
in Dakota and In the Northwest generally last
evening and this morning, with a drop In the
temperature of several degrees. Uutgood buy
ing for July by a prominent local operator
started shorts to covering, which advanced the
price for this future, and other deliveries fol
lowed to some extert. Cable advices also noted
a better feeling. Advices from Russia snoke
of the damage to the crops there as fully as bad
as heretofore reported.
A fair speculative business was transacted in
corn tbe first half of the session, after wbicb the
pit became qniet and Inactive. Tbe feeling was
quite firm, and trading was at a high range of
prices, with fluctuations coveringa widerrange
than for several das past. Ibe strengthening
influence, as on yesterday, was due to the active
shipping demand, which continues unabated,
and tbe near lutures showed advances of
uats v. ere quiet and steady.
In mess pork tbe lnqniry was moderatelv act
ive and tbe offeiines were not very large. Early
prices ruled 57c higher, later tbe feel
ing was stronger and prices were advanced 10
12&C but near tbe clo-e the feeling was easier,
and a reduction of "X10c was submitted to.
Rather a dull, easy feeling prevailed In the
lard market. Prices declined 25c, and tbe
market closed eay.
In tbe market for short ribs prices were about
25c lower at tbe openine, but ruled steadier
again, and tbe decline was recovered. Toward

GOOD WORDS FOR REAL ESTATE.
It Has Seen Handled Judiciously and is a
A KEW TOWN COMING TO THE FE0NT
To-morrow the glorious Fourth of July
will be a legal holiday throughout Uncle
Sam's wide domains, and the Exchange,
banks and most of the business houses in
Pittsburg will be closed. Persons having
commercial paper maturing to-morrow
should pay it or make satisfactory arrange
ments to-day to avoid protest.
A gentleman said to me yesterday: "I have
a few thousand dollars for which I have no im
mediate use and I believe I will invest it in
real estate. If 1 bad had the same mind ten
years ago I would be wealthy to-day.1 There
are plenty of good chances yet to make money,
but more capital is required. I do not think
values have reached high-water mark, nor do I
look for a sudden advance. It looks to me as
if the upward movement will be slow and sure,
and this gives me confidence. If I thought
there would be a boom I would stay out. A
boom Is always followed by a collapse. So far
as I can see real estate here has been bandied
carefully and judiciously and has every appear
ance of being In a healthy condition."
Yesterday afternoon he drove out to Roup
station to look at some vacant lots in that
So far this week business in mortgages has
been brisk. Tbe number recorded on Monday
was 36, representing about $40,000. The largest
was for $4,000. Between SO and 40 were filed for
record yesterday. Tbe safety of real estate as
an investment is generally recognized by local
capitalists, and no doubt large amounts of
money released by the payment of July divi
dends and interest will be placed in this se
curity. Marion station, on the Baltimore and Ohio
Rallroadjjtbout seven miles from the city, has
experienced quite a boom within the past few
months. Located midway between Pittsburg
andBraddock. and at a convenient distance
f rotn McKeesport,lt affords unusual advantages
to tbe working people of these large centers to
acquire homes in the country at a low price.
Tbe sale of 22 lots there on Saturday indicates
a large movement in that direction, and should
admonish intending purchasers to delay as
little as possible.
If all the signs should be fulfilled, by the time
Pittsburg is ready to annex everything as far
up as Braddock, Marion will be one of the
largest ana handsomest towns on the line ot the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.
There was a good inquiry for real estate yes
erday, and at least two big deals were com
menced, one of which may be consummated to
day. The inquiry was mainly for business
property and low priced lots. A Fourth ave
nue firm received $3,500 as commissions on re
cent sales at Oakland and Squirrel HilL
An oil broker remarked to me yesterday
evening: "I have been informed wlthm tbe
past few days that tbe Standard bas finally bit
upon a process for refining the Ohio product
which will remove all the objections hitherto
urged against it. This Is borne out by tbe fact
that tbe company is building large refineries at
several points, and is still buying up or leasing
more territory. They mould hardly do this if
they had not discovered a way for refining the
stuff and making it profitable as an illumlnant.
If it were fit for nothing bnt fuel they would
not go to so much unnecessary trouble and ex
pense. The fact is Lima oil refined from the
new process is hard to distinguish from the
Pennsylvania article, and I believe it will soon
be certificated and handled by the exchanges."
Another broker who was present added: "I
hope so. The present working stock is too
small to justify trading in future, options.
With the addition of the Buckeye contingent
we conld go ahead without fear of a squeeze at
settlement time. The demand is so great and
is Increasing so fast that it would make no dif
ference in price."
Work on the Second avenue electric road is
being pushed as rapidly as practicable, it is
expected that it will be completed and in run
ning order by November. The eastern ter
minus is Glenwood the line being nearly five
miles long. The certainty of rapid transit
about the time Indicated has started an active
inquiry for property all along the route, but
more particularly in the vicinity of Hazel wood,
where a large number of bnlldlng sites hive
been sold within the past two weeks at a band
some advance over former prices.
Rapid transit is doing great things for Pitts
burg, by making it possible for the working
people to acquire homes at a reasonable price
in districts hitherto inacessibleto them.
Pipe to convey water from Wilklnsbnrg to
North Braddock has been laid as far as Haw
kins station. Owing to unexpected delays
water will not be turned-on until the last of

A' SPURT IN ELECTBIC.
Strong and Weak Spota of the Local Stock
Electric was the feature of the stock market
yesterday, opening with a sale at 51. It was held
a point better in the afternoon. Tbe stock was
helped alongby several influences, among them
tbe closing of the transfer books, the discovery
that the capital stock of the proposed new com
pany will be only S5.COO.000, or no larcer than
that of the old company, and th growing belief
that the forthcoming judicial opinion will be in
Philadelphia Oas was fractionally weaker.
This was attributed mainly to the uncertainty
as to the size of tbe dividend. Wheeling and
People's Pipeago were slightly stronger. The
Tractions were weaker and neglected. There
was a better feeling in La Noriaon rumors that
the earnings are better than expected. A state
ment of tbe condition of tbe mine is looked for
in a short time. In the general list hot weather
is affecting prices as well as brokers. Bids,

The Kew Deal Fails to Poll Oil Oct of the
The oil market yesterday was dull and unin
teresting! The new system bas so far failed to
make an improvement,but its friends are hope
ful of good resnlts when it cbmes to be better
understood. Up to this time it has entirely
failed to attract tbe ontside interest, which
was the principal reason urged for its adop
tion. Regular August oil opened at 92c, and in a
short time slumped off a few fractions. Later
in the day the market rallied and sold up to
SSKc the highest point of the day. Then wirt
a fluctuation, it softened and closed at 92Jc.
There was no difference between cash and Au-
ust. Trading was about the same as the day
ef ore and entirely professional, x

In the General Slock Liar, Which Chips Off
Some of tbe Late Galm The Trusts
Still Active, bnt Railroads
Coming- to the Front.
New York, July Z The day In the stock
market was one ot reaction, which lasted
throughout the entire time, and tbe result of
the day's trading is to leave everything traded
in, with but few exceptions, materially lower
than last evening. Tbe trusts were still active,
but railroad stocks once more came to the
front, and the proportions between the sales of
the listed stocks were restored to tbe normal.
Atchison was the great weight upon tbe mar
ket, and to the rumors and stories of trouble in
the finances ot that company was due, more
than anything else, the weakness displayed in
all portions of the list to-day. It is true that
all the July obligations of tbe company have
been met, but tbe story from Philadelphia that
tbe remaining $3,000,000 of its second mortgage
notes had been issued set going all tbe stories
of the financial embarrassment of tbe com
pany, with the old talk of a receiver, and
although the story of the notes was denied
from Boston It did not stop the decline in tbe
stock nor remove the impression that the com
pany bad been compelled to borrow money to
meet its pressing needs. "
The result was a break of nearly 4 per cent.
To this was added the influence of tbe positive
refusal of the Burlington and Northern to
withdraw the low commodity tariff and other
expected complications in the West which set
on foot a selling movement in the Grangers,
and St. Paul, Burlington and Rock Island fol
lowed with material declines. Missouri Pacific
was sold in sympathy with Atchison, and New
England not meeting with Its recent good sup
port was included in the hksty realizations. The
Coals were more quiet than any of the other
large groups of stocks,bqt Lackawanna showed
considerable weakness, and especially in the
afternoon. The trusts were active, though
only in National Lead was tbe recent large
volume of business in those shares approxi
mated, and the realizations on tbe recent 6 per
cent rise in sugar caused a sharp break of S per
cent in the stock in the first few minutes, which
was to alarge extent the result of the uncover
ing ol stop orders.
This was followed by a partial recovery, but
tbe stock continued weak, and toward the close
tbe weak tone spread to tbe others, and both
Lead and D stillers broke materially. There
was throughout a marked indisposition to em
bark in any new ventures over tbe holiday, and
the room being bearish, advantage was taken
of tbe selling Atchison and the realizations in
tbe trusts to hammer tbe entire list. The mar
ket, which had ruled dnll except for the lead
ing stocks, became quite active In tbe last hour,
and the close was it eak at the lowest prices of
the dav.Almost tbe entire active list is material
ly lower to-night, and Atchison shows a loss of

IN HEE OWN DEFENSE
Mrs. Caroline Davis Tells the Court All
She Knows About Her Ilnsband'a Dentb
Other News of the Courts.
The only noteworthy feature in the Davis
murder trial yesterday afternoon was the testi
mony of Mrs. Caroline Davis in her own behalf.
Bhe said that on the night ot January 8 the
sister of the witness came to visit her. Tbey
went upstairs about 8.30 o'clock to Mrs. Davis'
bedroom. Her sister left in time to catch tbe
11:30 car on the Fenn avenue line. Witness did
not go down stairs. Soon after her sister left
witness got into bed. Meely White came to
bed, and witness, fell asleep. She was awakened
by bearing a shot fired. She sprang out of bed,
and that was all she remembered until she
found herself in tbe police station.
She was subjected to a most rigid cross ex
amination by District Attorney Porter, bnt
stuck to the main portion of her story. She
had been married to Albert J. Davis in 1SS0 by
Squire Sloan, in Petersburg, Pa. She did not
remember having any conversation with Officer
Snyder. She bad lived at No. SO Frankstown
avenue since October. Davis was down stairs
when witness went to bed. Witness did not
bear him come up stairs. After being awak
ened by the shot she did not see Davis. Did
not remember speaking to anyone. Did not
realize anything until she was placed In the
police station. Sbe had not been drinking dur
ing tbe day or evening. She bad been working
at tbe sewing machine in the evening. Did not
see the revolver that night nor after the shoot
ing. Captain Mercer told her to tell him all
about the affair, and be would do all be could
for her. Sbe told him that she did not know
anything abput it. Did not tell him that her
defense wonld be self-defense. To get
rid of him she told him to come
back again and she would tell him all. She
did not intend to tell him anything, because
sbe knew nothing nothing to tell. Sbe did not
declino to make a statement before the Coro
ner. Thomas M. Marshall, Sr made a short
address to tbe jury. He laid down the rules of
circumstantial evidence, and said that it was
just as reasonable to presnme that the little
girl. Meely Wblte, had done tbe shootlnc, as
Mrs. Davis. The prosecution, he said, had not
attempted to prove that Davis had not taken
his own life. He quoted tbe law on tbe case,
and claimed that there was nothing in it by
which the Jury might be permitted to convict
Thomas M. Marshall, Jr.. followed in a
lengthy address in which he maintained that it
was a case of suicide, and that tbe
testimony of tbe witnesses had proved
that it wonld have been impossible for his
client to have committed a murder. He asked
tbe Jury to bring in a verdict of acquittal.
When Mr. Marshall ended, Judge Collier ad
journed court until this morning.
While Mr. Marshall was addressing the jury
be said something which struck a colored man
named Charles Thompson as being very funny.
Thompson lauzhed aloud, and was promptly
taken in hand by the tipstaves. After conrt
adjourned be was given a severe reprimand by
Judge Collier, and dismissed.
A TIPSTAVE'S REMARK
Furnishes the Grounds for a motion for u.
John Rourke. Esq., commissioner ap
pointed to take testimony on the motion
for a new trial in the cases of several
members of the McGIll and Diyls families,
convicted of larceny, held a hearing in the case
yesterday. The' McOills and Davis were
charged by tbe officers of the Pittsburg and
Western Railroad with having broken into a
car and stolen about $700 worth of goods. Some
of the goods were afterward f onnd secreted in
the bouse of the defendants. They Were tried
and convicted of larceny.
A motion for a new trial was made, the
grounds given being that" Mr. Negley, a tip
stave in the Criminal Conrt, remarked in tbe
hearing of tbe jury in tbe case. Just before they
retired, that the defendants were a bad lot, and
that they were associated in the robbery with
Jack Welsh, who has since been sent 25 years
to the penitentiary for robbery. These re
marks, it is claimed, influenced the jury in its

among other things, bequeathed to Mrs. DiT
worth tbe fatally residence on Fifth avenue.

ago arrangements were made to sell tbe prop
erty to Mrs. Gusky for $55,925. Mrs. Dilwnrth
tendered her individual deed of the property
to Mrs. Gnsky, but the latter refused to accept
it. She stated that the title in fee simple to
the property was nut vested in Mrs. Dilworth
alone, but the other heirs as well. To settle
the matter a stated case was prepared and sub
mitted to the court for a decision as to the
title under the will.
