Great Activity in Canned Meats,
While Bicycles Are Booming.
Uncle Sam's Custom House Keeps Up Its
Usual Bright Record.
Orncie op Pittsburg DrsrATcn, J
Tuesday, July 9. 1889. (
Tradesmen who can are preparing to flit
to the mountains or seaside,and the situation
in most commercial lines Is that of suspend
ed animation.
A week ago the general prayer among
trades people was that rains would cease.
Uow the cry is for rain to come and cool
the atmosphere.
It is a pleasure to find that in some
branches of trade there is great activity,
notwithstanding the intensely hot weather.
A representative of the canned meats in
dustry said to-day: "Our trade was never
as large at this season of the year as it is
now. Since April 1 there has
been a growing demand lor our
poods, and this and next month promise to
be the best we have known. So far this
season our trade has been fully SO
per cent larger than for the cor
responding period of last year, with
the best two months yet to bear from. Oar
sales for last week amounted to 21,000 pounds of
Muff, the bulk of which was canned corn beef.
The trade in large 14-pound cans, which fell off
lor two or three jears, is coming back. Ten
ears ago the amount of canned meats bandied
by joobers was not one-tenth what is bandied
to-day. The rainy June, which had the effect of
staviugoff picnics and outing parties, no donbt
lessened demand for our products to some ex
tent, but there is ample time left to make up
for Ibis, and July and August will without a
doubt eclipse all corresponding months in years
gone by. Whatever the' results may be. we are
already assured of 50 per cent larger volume of
trade this year than last."
Fourth of July Good,
One of oar leading dealers in Fourth of July
and sporting goods reports an unusual activity
lor his trade. Tho patriotism of Pittsburg
never drew as heavily on pyrotechnic andnoise
roaking goods as this year. Dealers who laid
in heavy supplies, having had large faith in
Pittsburg patriotism, did not trust in rain.
Ktocks of fire-crackers and rockets are seldom
as well cleaned up after the Fourth as tbey are
now. The interview with this dealer developed
the fact that bicycles and tricycles were never
in sneb active demand as in the past month or
two. It is impossible to fill orders for bovs'
bicycles. Some orders have been on the books
for two or three weeks and the factories are
unable to respond. Said the above dealer:
"We have been writing andtelegraphlngto the
bicjele factories almost dally for weeks to
hurry up stock, but it seems to do little good,
and all we can do is to possess our souls in
patience and wait. It is very plain that the
calculations of bicycle makers were entirely
too modest, in view of the inability to meet
orders. It will, at the very least, bo a few
weeks before our firm can catch up to orders.
You may say for oar firm that Fourth of July
week brought an unusually satisfactory trade
all along the lines of our goods, and that we
never bandied as much stuff in the same time."
TJncle fonnVs Warehouse.
The first half of 1S39 has made a record at
Uncle Sam's warehouse, Penn avenue and
Garrison alley, about equal to the correspond
ing period of 1S88, which was one of the
good years for trade in imported goods.
The books of the Custom House show that
April of this year was the best month on
record and May was very little behind. June
was d ' ., owing to floods which kept back
stuff. I. the last week of June, when the rail
road blockade was lifted, there was a rush for a
few das, but business has again quieted down,
baid Secretary Keating to a Dispatch re
porter: "There has rot been as much business
done in imported liquors and iron through the
Custom House this year as last. In 1S83 there
were very large importOf iron rods, billets
and bars. This has materially declined. The
efforts to evade tho whisky tax by keeping
stock in foreign seaports wbete storage was
cheap has not proved so remunerative as was
supposed a few years ago. Tbe loss in proof
and quantity has in many instances spoiled
great expectations of profit. The only import
goods that bold up and keeps crowing in
volume all the time are cigars. The Havana
cigar holds its own and mure. Its constituency
Is steadily on the increase, if our books are a
fair criterion. Tbe warehouse is unnsnlly
bare. Bv the 1st of August goods will be piling
in for fall trade."

Chicago Trading In wheat was act
ive to-day, and the market was stronger. There
was some investment buying, and shorts cov
ered freely. July advanced 2c, and closed
about lc higher than yesterday, August
opened lAc higher, declined c then ad
vanced IJic and closed IKc higher, September
closed ljfc higher. December, which is at
tracting the principal attention, opened o
higher, declined Jjjc, then -advanced lKc, and
closed ifi higher than yesterday. The feeling
was unsettled early in tbe session, but devel
oped into a rather bullish tendency later.
The very strong tenor of foreign advices was
the principal influence on the market. English
markets evidently are being affected some by
dry weather. Domestic markets were all higher.
There was some buying, no doubt. In expecta
tion that the Government report will make a
poorer showing, some look for a tailing off in
winter wheat, and some lor a possible increase.
It was generally rumored that the report would
pat the condition of wheat in Dakota at 70,
against S3 last month.
A moderate business was transacted In corn,
with the bulk of the trading at slightly higher
prices, a firmer feeling prevailing. The better
tone was due largely to tbe active demand for
cash property. The market opened at yester
day's closing prices, advanced He, fluctuated
frequently within a narrow ranee and closed
lie better than yesterday.
Oats developed more activity, but it was at a
lower range of prices. The demand was light,
and the execution of outside selling orders
coupled with liberal offerings, produced a de
cline of ic At inside figures fair pur
chases were made to cover shorts, but the mar
ket closed quiet and easy.
A fairly active trade was reported in mess
pork, and almost exclusively in August and
September deliveries. Opening sale were
made at 5c advance, but a weaker feeling was
developed later, and prices receded 1012c
Toward the close the feeling was stroncer and
prices rallied 7l0c but settled back again
67C and closed steady.
A moderate business was transacted in tbe
lard market. Tbe feeling was somewhat un
settled and prices ruled irregular and aver
aged lower. Opening sales were made at yes
terday's closing figures, but a weak feeling
was quickly developed and a reduction of 6
7c was submitted to. Toward the close the
feellug was steadier and prices advanced 2Q
6c and closed steady.
Tbe market for short rib sides was fairly
active, and prices exhibited very little change.
The leading futures ranged as follows:

A Fine Allegheny Residence Bought
by a Prominent Merchant.
A Philadelphia Gentleman Falls in love
With Pittsburg Suburbs,
Squirrel Hill and Oakland, it is now cer
tain, will before long enjoy the luxury oi
rapid transit. Those wanting to establish
homes in either place should hurry up the
cakes before the inevitable boom takes effect.
Tbe most important transaction in real
estate in Allegheny for a long time au
thentically reported was closed up yester
day by Samuel "W. Black & Co. B. E.
Boggs, of Boggs & Buhl, purchased the
residence property 13G North avenue, lot 110
by 170, with a large two-story brick build
ing, for which he paid $65,000 cash. The
lot is about twice the size of the one adjoin
ing, which was sold by Mr. Boggs a month
or so ago.
An Allegheny gentleman who lives near
said the old building would probably be
torn down and a much finer one erected. Con
sidering the location, the price paid is thought
to be quite reasonable.
Fragment of a conversation on a railroad
car between two unknown gentlemen yester
day: First speaker Well, how are you getting
along with ;ctir real estate speculation ?
Second speaker Very well. The ground
cost us Mi000. and we have already sold about
90,000 worth of lots.
I do not know to what he referred. Later on
be added: "I could have bought tbe Hampton
place for 50,000 a few months ago."
As often remarked, there is a great deal
more doing in real estate than appears upon
the surface.
All that is needed to develop tbe beantifnl
country around Pittsburg is rapid transit, and
that want bld fair soon to bo supplied in the
fullest measure. Tbe assurance of one or more
electric roads down the Sewicklev Valley has
given quite a boom to property in that dis
trict, and their construction will double or
treble the demand.
Land so delightfully situated, and so conven
ient to the city, will not long lie fallow. Rapid
transit would soon place it on a par with the
best sections of the East End.
Mr. Charles Holt, a prominent business man
of Philadelphia, was visiting friends in the
East End last week. On the Fourth he was
driven to the city by way of Oakland. He was
charmed by tbe country, and said it was the
most beautiful of any he had seen in America
or Europe.
This is a high, but not undeserved, recorn
mendation. The suburbs of Pittsburg, from
whatever direction viewed, will bear compari
son with those of any other city in the Union,
and come out ahead every time.
This being true, it Is no wonder they are rap
idly filling up with a good class of people.
The Chicago farmer' Review estimates the
probable winter wheat crop of 1889 at 313,313,000
bushels, and the yield of rye at 28.951,000 bush
els, the largest crop since 1884. The pork crop
is said, also, to be unusually large. There is no
danger, therefore, of a scarcity of bog and
The mathematical lunatic has again escaped
from the asylum and Is making public his
theories to account for tbe alleged increase of
storms and floods in these latter years. He
says there are more than 10,000 locomotives in
uso in North America, and that tbe vapor from
these sent ont into the atmosphere each week
will measure more than 50,00d,000,000 cubic
yards, which must be returned as ram. or 7,000.
000,000 cubic yards a day quite enough to pro
duce rainfall every 24 hours.
Other non-condensing steam engines add
eight times as much more, so that the total
mass of vapor discharged into tbe atmosphere
must be each weekmore than 470.000,000,000 cubic
yards. As a result ol this state of affairs be
predicts that the American race will finally be
drowned out, but be neglects to fix a date for
that awful cataclysm.-
Tbe sale of 44 lots at Marion station in one
week Is an event of sufficient importance to at
tract wide attention. At this rate all the lots
for sale there will soon be closed out. Marlon
possesses special advantages for workingmen,
being closely connected with Pittsburg, Brad
dock and McKeesport.
That they appreciate the opportunity which
it offers of acquiring homes at a moderate
cost the rapid sale of lots sufficiently testifies.
Tery Little movement In Local Stocks, but
Triers Well maintained.
The stock market yesterday was of the same
kind as that of the day before dull and gener
ally steady. Only two securities were handled.
Philadelphia Gas and Electric, and they sold
to tbe extent of only 1C0 shares. Both were
fractionally weaker, the former sailing at 37
and the latter at 51. Philadelphia was ex-dividend,
as the books close to-day.
On the strength of presumably good news L&
Nora was stronc at 2, with 1 bid. Manufact
urers' Oas could have been sold at 26, but none
was offered at that fizure. Citizens' Traction
was firm but dull. For Central 31 was vainly
offered for 100 shares.
Considering tbe dullness, values are well sus
tained. This leads operators to hope for a re
vival in the near future. Bids, offers and sales
are appended:

Local Bankers Say Everything la la Ex

Tbere was no special movement in local
monetary matters yesterday, but an average
volume of business was transacted. Very little
f-esh paper was made, but considerable old was
renewed. There was no change In rates, and
no disturbance ot tbe close relations between
currency and exchange. Bankers think busi
ness has touched low.water mark for the sea
son. Many of tbe leading spirits In financial
circles are off on their vacations, bnt will be
back in time to take a hand in the fall move
ment. There are no longer fears of a money
stringency. Shipments to Europe being no
longer profitable, the drain in that direction has
ceased. Here the supply is abundant and
promises to be maintained tho rest of tbe sea
son. Tbe clearings yesterday were $1,965,529 37
and the balances $429,059 43. This is largely
ahead of the same day last year.

Although business was probably no greater
than on Monday, the feeling in tbe oil market
yesterday was better, and hope revived of bet
ter times coming. The fact that the market
closed at the highest point of tbe day was en
couraging. A dealer said: "That's what we
want. If we can boost prices sufficiently to in
terest outsiders that will be drawn in and busi
ness will pick up."
There was a sluggish opening at 91c an ad
vance to 91c, a drop to 91c, the lowest point
reached, and a rally at tbe close to tbe opening
figure. Cash oil ruled about the came as Au
gust. No one seemed willing to touch the Sep
tember option. Monday's clearings were 182,
000. Tbe monthly pipe line report is expected to
day. If it should be as bullish as anticipated.
It will no doubt stimulate the market.

Stocks Dull and Weak nt the Opening, but
Kally nnd Score Small Gains at the
Close Strong nnd Weak Spot.
New York, July 9. The stock market
seemed to have lost its animation to-day, and
tbe trading was only abont half of that of yes
terday, though the most confident feeling
which became so noticeable last evening con
tinued throughout the day, and the general
drift of prices was upward, though the opera
tions of the bears and traders mado a feverish
and irregular market during most of the time.
The shorts did not like the aspect of affairs,
and tbere was considerable bidding for stocks
at the opening, and first prices this morning,
aided by higher figures in London, were from
H to X per cent better than last evening's final
figures. The disposition was evidently to await
tbe action of tbe Presidents' meeting, however,
and the demand for tbe time was entirely from
the shorts and Dears made a demonstration
against the list which in the first few minutes
forced prices off to something below last night's
Tbe heaviest drive was made at Burlington,
and it lost Vyi per cent. The short Interest in
this and Rock. Island is becoming un wield v, and
Burlington commanded a premium of l-64th of
1 per cent, and Rock Island loaned at 1 per cent
for carrying. The raid was soon over, bow
ever, and the market thereafter gave evidence
of good supporting orders and though tbere
was Utile buying outside of the shorts and tbe
foreigners, the market rallied, and by noon waa
materially higher than the opening figures. It
became known that the Alton was not repre
sented at the meetiag jla CUeago, and the pro
fessional sold some stocks after noon, which
again sagged tbe list off, and the list, which had
been remarkably firm up to that time. Denver
and Rio Grande preferred and St. Paul pre
ferred, were specially weak.
The weakest point in tbe market was the
trusts, especially sugar, which was sold on the
expectation that tbe general term wonld con
firm tbe opinion of Judge Barrett,and the stock
at one time was about 3 per cent lower than
last evening. The coal stocks were all stronc,
and Jersey Central especially, though' it weak
ened somewhat toward delivery hour with the
rest ot the list. During most of tbe day tbe
general list presented little or no feature, and
the market finally closed dull and firm at
something better than tbe opening figures.
There were a larger number of railroad bonds
traded in to-day, but like the dealings in shares
they were for small amounts, and tbe aggre
gate of the business done is smaller than yes
terday, reaching only $1,092,000. There wss
only one active bond, the Reading 4s, which
furnished $134,000 to tbe total. The general
tone of tho market was firm, but many Issues
developed considerable weakness and the Im
portant changes are about equally divided be
tween gains and losses. Denver and Rio
Grande 4s lost 2K, at 79K, and Denver and
South Park 2, at&OK-

A Remarkable Experience.
Mr. H. Robertson, a native of Scotland, but
who has been a resident of this country for sev
eral years, has been a victim of kidney disease
wltb the following symptoms: Be 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
the morning, and as he gradually grew weaker,
his stomach became affected. His appetite
became poor, and be was constantly annoyed
with sour eructations of gas from bis stomach
after eating, and on account of the kidneys not
performing their function properly, his blood
became charged with rheumatic poison, so that
he bad much pain about his shoulders and dif
ferent parts of his body. As he became more
emaciated he began to cough, and be felt much
tightness and weight across bis lungs. In
speaking of the matter one day, he said:
"I doctored with tbe best doctors I could hear
of, but was fast getting worse. L became mel
ancholy and thought 1 could not live. Finally
I began treatment with tbe physicians of tbe
Polypathic 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 bave
been entirely cured by these physicians, and I
gladly sign my name. H. Robertson."

O jticx of PrrTSBUuo dispatch,
Tuesday. July B. 18S9. J
Country Prcxluce Jobblaa; Prices.
Fruits and vegetables in season are in boun
tiful supply, and movement Is active at low
figures. Dealers complain that multitudes of
Maryland berries are coming to market in bad
shape. Good blackberries are In demand at
outside quotations, but lots of poor stock goes
begging at less than one-halt The new crop of
apples is showing up well for the season and
prices are drifting down. New domestic
Sweitzer cheese comes in slowly. There is
still abundance of the old stock on hand which
receives tbe preference over new. Large quan
tities of Florida tomatoes have been thrown on
markets within a day or two. which move very
slowly because of quality. Tbe volume of
Monday and Tuesday's produce trade was
large. The principal trouble of markets is tbe
abundance of everything, and all signs point to
the fact that this will continue all this season.

The Orlda aud Cause of tbe Famous Church
Trouble Brombt Oat In Court An Old
Colored Couple's Claim.
The account of J. M. Courtney.adminlstrator
of the estate of Dr. Joseph Courtney, late of
Emswortb, came up yesterday in the Orphans'
Court for audit. Exceptions to the account
bad been filed by Billy Roberts and wife, col
ored people who had nursed the old gentleman,
and had taken care of him in his last illness,
from November L 1887. until January 12, 1888,
when he died from a complication of diseases.
The fact that this claim was the origin and
cause of tbe famous Emsworth Church trouble
gave considerable importance to the matter,
and the citizens of that place await the Court's
decree with interest.
The witnesses for Roberts were George
Taylor, the blacksmith down there, and John
P. Dean and his son. The testimony showed
that Dr. Courtney bad tried to borrow $300
with which to pay these old colored people:
that later ho bad showed Tayloralot of ground
worth $600, which he intended giving them,
and still later that he had gotten
young Dean to draw up articles
of agreement to tbe effect that if tbe
Roberts wonld remain with him until he died
he gave them tbe house they were all living In
at tbe time and a large lot, both worth 51,600.
It was also brought out that, beyond calling on
him, his relations paid no attention to him;
that he was peculiar and a very independent
old gentleman, and that he felt very grateful
to the old colored people who attended him.
Mr. Roberts' case was bandied by John D,
Watson, Esq., and the administrator was rep
resented by John C. Haymaker, Assistant Dis
trict Attorney.
Had it been known tbe hearing was to bave
been held, Emswortb would have been numer
ously represented. As it was. the attorneys
and others who happened to be present were
very much amused at tbe quiet sallies and
"passages at tarms" between the two lawyers
engaged in tbe case. The impression made by
tbe old colored people was certainly a very
favorable ona
