Retail Prices of Filling for Saturday's
FISH AND FRUIT MOVING SLOWLY.
in Over-Supply of Tennessee Potatoes
CHOICE GGS FIBS1, BUTTEB QUIET
Office or itttsburq Dispatch, l
Fkiday. July 5, 18S9. J
Market basket materials have undergone
few changes within the past week. Straw
berries are ont and whortleberries are in.
New potatoes, in a jobbing way, have
seldom been as low at this season of the year
as they are now. Markets hare been glutted
for a number of days witb Tennessee potatoes,
and in carloads sold as low as $ 1 25, which Is
about double the freight price.
Watermelons and cantaloupes keep improv
ing in size, quality and quantity, bnt fail to fall
in price. Dealers in fruits and vegetables re
port a quiet week's trade, but havs large hopes
and great expectations for Saturday, if the
weather prophet will but smllo on them as be
promises to do. The time is here when the
products of lake and ocean are at their
quietest. From now till the Utter part of Au
cust fish markets are quiet. The trade with
fancy restaurants, whicn is the nrincipal source
of demand at this season, slackens up as the
time comes when patrons begin to flit to moun
tain and seaside. One of our leading florists
speaking of bis trade, said to-day: "The
Fourth of July is he only holiday of the year
which makes no demand on our business
Christmas. Thanksgiving and Decoration Day
are uniformly great dajs with florists, but on
the nation's birthday flowers are always at a
discount. This is the only holiday that florists
are permitted to celebrate. Our trade this
week has been confined mostly to funeral
tributes. The time is close when the water
ins place demand will be showing up. In
a week or two we will be having orders for
floral decorations from Cape May, Atlantic
City. Cresson and other popular resorts."
Country butter is in over-supply. Cows are
emphatically living in clover, and the result is
seen in the fact that country bntter goes a
bcreine. Smine chickens are in better sbaDe.
and lower prices than last week. Following
are the latest retail prices of market basket
filling as furnished by leading dealers:

Chicago. July 5. There was leu doing In
wheat to-day, and the market TUled quiet,
within a lower range of prices. Fluctuations
were not severe. July ruled somewhat irregu
lar, within a range of 2c, and closed about a
lower than Wednesday. The deferred futures
opened KSKo lower, then advanced KWc,
again eased off, and closed c lower than
The decline was attributed principally to ths
weakness in St. Louis, which market predicted
large receipts of new wheat by Monday, and re
ported two-thirds of that arriving now as grad
ing No. 2 red. The weather, too. was more fa
vorable, being dry in the Southwest and rainy
in the Northwest. Reports from the North
west were more favorable regarding crop pros
pects, and this was a weakening feature. Cable
advices, however, were favorable to holders.
Only a moderate business was transacted in
corn, the range being narrow and most of the
trading confined to local operators. Tbe feel
ing around the opening was somewhat easier,
initial trades being liilc lower than the
closing quotations of Wednesday, but as tbe
session advanced a better tone was developed
and prices advanced Jc Influenced to a con
siderable degree by tbe good shipping demand.
The market then became easier, closing a shade
lower than Wednesday.
Oats were slow and a shade easier. Trading
was fairly active in the market for mess pork,
but tbe feeling was unsettled and nervous, and
prices fluctuated considerably within a narrow
ranze. Early prices receded 1012Kc Later
prices were advanced 15017c but finally set
tled back &07c and closed steady.
Only a fair business was reported in the lard
market, and tbn feeling was easy. Early in the
day it ruled 607Kc lower, but during the latter
part of the session more steadiness prevailed
and prices rallied 205c and closed quiet.
A moderate trade was reported in toe market
for short rib sides. The feeling was easier
early and prices receded 2K5c. Later the
decline was recovered.
Tbe leading futures ranged as follows:

An Opening in Indiana County for
sn Enterprising Capitalist.
ETerythlDff Favorable for a Knshintr Trade
the Coming- Autumn.
THE HOLIDAY. CAUSES A BOOH IN BATS
Indiana is considered one of the best agri
cultural counties in Western Pennsylvania,
but land there is not valued at facer prices.
A Pittsburg gentleman located on a 200-acre
farm near Homer City, in that county, sev
eral years ago. Later he removed to South
America, where he engaged in business, and
where he still resides. His wile was in the
city yesterday and placed the farm 1n the
hands of a Fourth street agent, with in
structions to sell it at (60 an acre.
Considering that it is well improved, and
has all the necessary buildings, good fences,
a large young orchard and several never
failing springs, this is certainly a very low
figure. While city property maintains the
advance begun six or eight years ago, farm
land has failed to hold its own in the same
period. Farming seems to be losing its attrac
tions in Western Pennsylvania, where it is no
longer considered a paying business. Are not
the fanners themselves responsible for this un
natural state of affairs?
Concerning the business outlook. Manager
Wigley, of Dun A Co.s Commercial Agency,
says: "The result of careful Inquiry at all
points in our district indicates that the wheat
crop will be good. Oats are looking well in
most places, but the crop is not yet safe Corn
is backward, on account of the continual cool
and wet weather, but under favorable condi
tions will make a good crop. Potatoes, hay,
fruit and other farm produce is all reported as
excellent, and the wool district is getting a fair
market for the clip. In parts of West Virginia
the continued rains have been a boom for the
lumbermen, enabling them to float their logs to
market freely abd cheaply, and railroad build
ing in other parts of that State contributes to a
rosy promise for the future. In Eastern Ohio
nearly all the manufacturing towns report a
healthy state of affairs. Mills and factories are
running with a fair amount of orders, and
though prices are in some cases unsatisfactory,
labor is well employed and tollers receive the
benefit of the weeklv pay rolls.
"Our rural territory in Western Pennsylva
nia is chiefly dependent on the coal-mining and
oil-producing industries. At present both of
these sources of wealth are somewhat de
pressed, and the great rainfall on the western
slope of tho Alleghenies, which culminated in
the Johnstown disaster and the temporary em
barrassment of railroad facilities, destruction
of sawmills and loss of lumber, have all con
spired to indicate a rather gloomy future in
the section designated. Yet even there the
prospect of an abundant harvest holds forth
the promise of a silver lining behind the pres
ent cloud. The wage question remains unset
tled, but no great difficulty between employers
and employes is anticipated. Building is per
haps more actiy6 tban ever before. If the crop
reports in all parts 'of tho Union should prove
as favorable as those in our immediate district,
we shall expect a satisfactory condition of
trade the coming autumn."
A great many hats were too small for the
heads of the wearers yesterday morning,in con
sequence of which nearly all the dealers in
gentlemen's head gear did a rushing business.
Apropos of this a Liberty street merchant told
a good story on one of his brother dealers.
Some time ago there was a convention of
produce men held is Milwaukee, which was
attended by a delegation from Pittsburg, one
or two of which were in tbe habit of taking an
occasional glass of beer. The sober ones of the
party singled out one of these weak brethren
as the subject of a practical joke. Ascertain
ing one evening that he had returned in a
happy condition from a visit to several of the
breweries for which Milwaukee Is famous, they
purchased a bat of the same quality and ap
pearance, but of a smaller size tban the one he
After he had retired for the night, the old
hat was removed and the new substituted.
The gentleman awoke bright and early in the
morning, dressed himself with his usual care,
and picked up bis hat. Trying it on he thought
there was something wrong with it, but he
didn't? know what. He examined it carefully
and tried it on again. Still it wouldn't fit.
While this episode was going on his practical
jokers were watching the performance through
a transom, .and greatly enjoyed the discom
fiture of their victim. Finally, after an' utter
failure to bring about a correspondence be

the conclusion that the former had undergone
a remarkable growth during the few hours he
had been sleeping, or the latter had mysteri

until he reached home, and the mystery was
explained to him. The effort to bribe his com

In noltem is the contrast between prices in
England and the United States more striking
than in the relative prices, at the works, of
Connellsville and Durham coke. These two
cokes are the typical cokes of their respective
countries. They are the typical blast furnaco
fuels. The output of the Durham coke Is by
far tbe largest in Great Britain, being probably
more than half of the output of that country,
while tbe Connellsrille district produces more
tban half of ths coke made in the United
States. But Connellsville coke is selling, so it
is stated, at the mines at 90c to SI a ton of 2,000
pounds, while the Durham coke sells from 16 to
20 shillings per ton of 2,240 pounds, or reduced
to the same unit as tbe American price, from
S3 46 to S4 32 a ton. or from about SX to 4X
times the price of American coke
There are three reasons why coke in the
United States is selling cheaper than in En
gland, namely: Lower wages, tbe less valne of
coal in the ground, and the great stretches of
transportation necessary in this country to
bring tbe materials for making pig iron to
gether. PICKED UP A LITTLE.

Larse Volume of .Routine Boalnei
Fear et Stringency.
The condition of the local money market yes
terday was not materially different from that of
the previous days of the week, but there was a
larger volume of routine business, of which
checking was the principal feature, as shown by
the Clearing House report, the exchanges being
$2,598,972 01, and the balances $379,605 08.
Money continues plenty and rates easy at 69
6 per cent. Financiers do not apprehend any
stringency. They say it is too early to indulge
in predictions as to what the fall of the year
will bring forth, but judging from present indU
cations there will be no spasms of that sort, and
that funds are likely to be very easy throughout
1889. Of course, should there be a heavy spring
ing up of the iron and steel industries, as is now
probao'e, and commission business generally
should pick up to an extraordinary extent,
there wonld be a lively demand for all classes
of money, with the natural result of higher
than going rates.

OH Brokers Begin to Talk Against the New
The oil market was distressingly dull yester
day. If a vote had been taken on going back
to the old plan of trading, it would have been
carried by a large majority. Others held, how
ever, that the new system had not been in
operation long enough to afford a satisfactory
test of if meritsand that ft would come ont
all right in the end.
There was a quiet opening at 91c The mar
ket soon weakened to 90c from which it re
covered to the opening figure, where it hung
nearly all day, with very little doing. Near the
close there were a few small sales at 91c, from
which there was a decline to filiic at which the
market finished. Cash and July oil was a trifle
weaker, but dull and featureless. Wednesday's
clearings were 256,000.

CRYING FOB QAS.
Cincinnati Want It Badly Nothing
Will Save Her Bacon.
The necessity of natural gas for Cincinnati
is thus shown by the Commercial Gazette of
that city, which says: "We are in the age of
natural gas, and we are n earing the age of fuel
gas. It will not do, therefore, for Cincinnati to
sit while cities and towns all around us are se
curing natural gas from Ohio and Indiana
fields. There are warnings enough in notices
posted on tbe wall of deserted manufacturing
establishments of removal to Ohio and Indiana
towns. The late Mr. Hall Informed tbe writer
immediately preceding his death that he in
tended to remove his great factory to where
natural gas was available He had counted the
cost, he said, and made up his mind that it
would pay. The only point with him was
whether he would go to Toledo, Findlay or
Piqua. Two or three stove foundries" have al
ready left Cincinnati. We bear of no industry
coming to take their places and we are losing
our bold upon many others. Meantime, natural
gas is being piped from the Indiana field to
Chicago. Oil lias already been piped from
Lima to Chicago, where it Is being utilized for
We have begun to talk about natural gas,
and the fight against it has also begun. The
opposition informs us that it can't be done,
and that U would not pay if it conld. But it
has been done in other places, and it does pay.
Dayton has it at 10 cents per 1,000 feet. Indian
apolis tbe same. Of course, it is in all the
towns located in or near to the eas fields. It is
taken to Buffalo. N. Y a distance of 92 miles.
We are told, furthermore, that it would ruin
our new streets to lay -pipes to distribute the
gas, even if we had ii It would cause some In
convenience, it is true bnt no ruin, but this
would be better tban to Dave grass grow In tbe
streets. Tbero need be no trickery about this
business. The Board of Public Affairs can
easily guard against that. A contract maybe
made, we are informed, to deliver 25,000,000
feet per day at the corporation line Then
there would be no trick abont laying pipes
inrouKn tne streets to aeitver it to consumers.
Tbe city, too, conld regulate the price
But the gas might give out. So it might, but
the fact is there is more gas produced now than
at any former time as there is more oil, and
yet it has been predicted all along, since oil and
gas were discovered, that they would give out.
Meantime, both bave been discovered in new
fields, where all the geological theories were
against such discoreries.. There areiwo classes
that talk this way. 'One is composedof those
whose interests are opposed to natural gas.
The other is made up of those who want to
monopolize the gas and sell it at exorbitant
prices. But there is the gas and tbe oil, all tbe
same, and their use is revolutionizing matters.
Cincinnati feels this already, and unless our
people wake up, it will be felt still more and
perhaps disastrously, We could get along with
out gas if competitors did not have It. We
would be forced to get along without it if it
could not be badthut since it can be bad, it
would be suicidal not to secure it, and that
without unnecessary delay."

In the Majority.
NktvYoek. July 6. Tbe stock market was
again moderately active to-day, with the gTeat
bulk of the business done confined to the
Granger stocks, and the trusts were more
quiet than at any time since their activity be
gan, only lead showing any special animation
There was a weak tone almost throughout the
entire day. however, and prices to-night are
generally lower than on Wednesday. The
prices from London this morning were materi
ally hleher than our closing figures of Wednes
day, showing that that center was not in sym
pathy with tbe downward movement here and
it was reported that large lots of St. Paul bad
been bought in that market for American ac
count. This gave a better tone to tile opening deal
ings, and first figures, while quite Irregular,
were generally higher, and the advances ex
tended topper cent In the general list, while
Jersey Central was exceptional with a gain of 1
per cent at 111, which .advantage It afterward
increased a like amount. Tbe Western rail
road situation showed no improvement, how
ever, and with little or nothing doing by com
mission people on tbe long side and the temper
of the room decidedly bearish, the advocates of
lower prices were encouraged to make another
aemonstrauon against tne list.
The leading bear was on the street, although
he denied giving out any selling orders. Atch
ison was selected as the special point of attack,
and the pressure against tbe stock was Increased
by liberal selling orders from Boston. The de
cline in the stock did not cease until a loss of i
per cent had been scored, and the movement in
it did much to shake out weak holders of other
stocks. St. Paul, Northwestern and Missouri
Pacific came next to Atchison in point of
weakness, and all of the stocks mentioned
dropped over 1 per cent before the decline was
The liquidation among the smaller bulls'as
sumed large proportions, but the impression
became general before delivery hour
that large lines of shorts had been covered, and
there was a change in tbe tenor of the specula
tion, and in the last hour there was eood buy
ing in all portions of tbe list. Tbe close was
quiet but steady at the improvement over the
lower prices. There was considerable pressure
also upon Reading, but tbe impression made
upon it was small, notwithstanding that the
stock was the most active on the list. Of tbe
other coalers, Jersey was strong and Delaware
and Hudson weak.
The other stocks on the regular list hewever,
were quiet to dull and their movements com
paratively insignificant. In the unlisted de
partment lead was still active, but there was
no movement except in sugar, which opened
up a fraction and then declined over 2 per cent,
but recovered and closed only a fraction lower.
The final changes show considerable irregu
larity, but declines are most numerous. Atch
ison lost lii and Delaware and Hudson 1 per
cent, white Jersey is up 2 per cent.
Railroad bonds are dull and as a rule fluctu
ated within tbe narrowest limits, marked
changes in quotations being few in number.

of the Carbon Iron 'Works, located on
Thirty-second street, to the effect that a re
duction of 10 per cent in wages of the shear
ers will be made on Monday. An employe
of the works stated to the reporter that'it
has been common talk among the rnillmen

of the proprietors to reduce the
wages of all of the employes if
there is no opposition made on the part of
the shearmen, Tne shearmen are at pres
ent getting 1 cents a ton, ana tne proposed
reduction will make it SU cents. Another
party stated that a strike would resnlt if a
redaction ot the wages of all the workmen
was made, but did not know what would be
the result if onlythe shearers were re
duced. The workmen of the mill belong to
no labor organisation'.
Mr. Lash, the manager of the mill, was
seen by tbe reporter, but he dented such a
move. He slso stated that there was not

DESCENDANTS OF PIONEERS.
The Scotch-Irish Movementla Given m Good
Start In Flttsbarf.
Many of the descendants of Scotch-Irish
settlers of Western Pennsylvania held a
meeting yesterday afternoon in the chapel
of the First Presbyterian Church. Among
them were Eev. Dr. Allison, Eev. L, IT.
Hays, Eev. Kevin 'Woodside, Kev. J. T.
McCrory, Eev. Mr. Chalfant, Eev. Mr. Gil
fillan. Prof. T.'H. Bobinsoh, Colonel J. W.
Echols, Esq., J. McF. Carpenter, Esq.,
Colonel W. A. Herron and Da
vid Eobinson. The meeting was
called to order by Dr. Allison, and Eev. I.
N. Hays stated that the object of the gather
ing was to arrange for extending an invita
tion to the Scotch-Irish Association of
America to hold its next meeting here. Dr.
Hays stated that this association comprised
some of the most prominent men in the
country. Last year they held their meeting
in Columbia, Tenn., and had a notable
time. The society has expressed a desire to
meet in this city, and Df. Hays stated that
they should be given a warm reception here,
where the Scotch-Irish blood is thickest and
purest. The only business he thought that
was necessary was to extend an invitation
and appoint an Executive Committee to take
charge of affairs.
Eev. Mr. Chalfant moved that a commit
tee consisting of Dr. I. N. Hays, Chairman;
Dr. Allison, Eev. Nevin Woodside, Eev. J.
P. McCrory, Prof. T. H. Eobinson, Colonel
W. A. Herron, J. "W. Echols, Esq., and J.
M. C. F. Carpenter, Esq., be appointed to
write an invitation to the society, and also
to arrange all details. This motion was
Dr.' Hays said the yonag people knew
little or nothing of the history of tbe Scotch
Irish, and that this meeting wonld, in a
way, educate them. The society was com
posed of a large number of Southern gentle
men, and he thought all former sectional
prejudices should be buried and a warm
Colonel J. W. Echols approved the re
marks of Dr. Hays. The speaker cams
from the Sooth and his wife was a Georgian
for 100 years back, but they come of the
good old Scoteh-lrish stock. The young
people, he said, had a very vague idea that
Scotch-Irish meant a anion oi blood. The
speaker said that tbe war is over and the
prejudices of the late unpleasantness were
past in almost everyplace except the Church,
and if it conld only be driven ont of there it
wonld be past entirely. He wanted the
right hand ol fellowship extended.
The Executive Committee afterward held
a meeting and elected Colonel Echols secre
