The Enn of Cattle at Liberty Only
Half That of Last Week.
i HeaTy Weights Drag-Sheep and Lambs
Scarce and Higher.
Wednesday. July 10. 18S9. J
The supply of cattle this week was little
above one-half that of last week. Keceipts
on Monday were CO cars, to which about
4 loads have been added since. Receipts
last week were close to 120 car loads.- In
the supplies of this week were an unusually
large number of prime heavy-weight cattle.
One load received averaged 1,738 pounds,
and a number of others ranged from 1.400 to
1,600. For a number of months past shippers
of heavy-weight cattle have given the Liberty
yards the go-by, as demand for this grade has
been light.
A large proportion of the heavy cattle re
ceived this week were from Licking county,
Ohio, the county of which Newark is tho seat.
Said a leading stockman: "It has been a long
time since wo have had a run of cat
tle as high in quality as we had
this week. The trouble with markets is that
heavyweights are not in demand here." This
grade was slow atr last week's prices. Light,
smooth cattle, not weighing much above 1.300
pounds, were 10 to 20c higher than a week ago.
and a few very choice ones brought as much as
80c more. . ..
Retailers complain that this has been the
worst week or the year for them, said a lead
ing retailers"! have not seen, as doll a Tuesaay
these many months as jesterday. The ex
tremely hot weather bas evidently very much
curtailed the consumption of meat. Unless we
have a light run of cattle next week markets
will be demoralized. The salvation of trade
this week has been the scarcity of such stock
as our market calls for. If we had had a rue
this week equal to last the bottom would have
dropped oui of trade."
The outside price paid for prime heavy
weight steers, welching from L7(X) to 1,750, was
U 40. The range of 1,400 to 1,000 pound cattle
was 84 20 to S4 35. These heavyweichts were
mostly bought for New York, ana markets
nere well cleaned up this morning.
febeep and Lambs.
A choice article was strong at last week's
prices. A few very choice wethers sold at So 20,
which was the best price reached for a long
time past. The general range was $4 50 to $5 for
wethers weighing from 83 to 100 pounds. Good
spring lambs were not in sufficient supply for
the demands of the trade.
The run of sheep and lambs was light for
the week and everything of good quality
I oundveady sale at the outside market prices.
Said a leading dealer: "Old corn fed sheep
are now pretty much out of the market. Last
ear everybody who raised sheep wanted to get
rid of them as quickly as possible, because of
the low price ot wook Now since wool has ad
vanced and sheep arc relatively better stock to
hold than cattle, there is a general disposition
on the part of farmers to hold back their
sheep. TtiR is the reason for short snpolics of
late and not as many held because of any
scarcity throughout the country. The advance
In wool adds 60c to the value of every head
of sbeep, and as feed is cheap and plenty,
thrifty farmers are shrewd enough to keep
stock out of market at present."
The run was light and demand good for light
weights. Heay hogs, weighin? from 275 to
825 pounds, are no longer wanted at Liberty
yaids, and can only be disposed of by liberal
concessions. The best prico that could be ob
tained for extreme heavy-weight hogs was $4 15
&l 40. Medium heavy hogs sold at a range of
14 4C4 5a Yorkers and light weights, M U5
4 SO.
Tbe outside price of light packing hogs at
Chicago to-day is 4 00 with a firm tone to mar
kets, bald a leading Liberty dealer to-day: "I
wish the shippers to this market could get to
understand that there is a very poor aenund
here this season for heavy-weight bogs. Light
weicbis are easy enough to sell, but heavy
it eights are a drug all the time."
aicCall & Co.' Review.
The supply of cattle was light and the mar
ket active and 15 to 25c per cwt, higher on

Wheat Opens Well but Loses Its Grip To
ward tbe Close All the Options Seek
a Lower Level Hoc Products
Active and btendy.
Chicago There was active trading In
wheat to-day, and the feeling was unsettled,
being decidedly strong at tbe start but quickly
weakened and ruled lower. The various de
liveries opened from Ha to Jc higher than yes
terday's closing, but soon developed weakness,
and prices declined lKQ2c, closing Jfe lower
for Jnly, l$c lower for August; l$c lower for
September, and lc lower for December than
closing figures of yesterday. Tho public cables
were decidedly strong and higher all round, but
private cables quoted tbe market as lower,
with the weather more favorable for the grow
ing crop.
While this intelligence had much to do with
the weakness, there no doubt was a disposition
on tbe part of some ot the largo longs to sell,
and the offerings would have come on the mar
ket any way. Fears that the Government re
port might be favorable helped to influence the
selling. The market no doubt was a long one,
tbe shorts having covered freely on the recent
cp-turn. Some of tho large longs realized, fol
lowed by some of the smaller traders, and at
tbe decline the market ruled weak and closed
rather easy.
A quiet, steady feeling prevailed in corn.
Fluctuations kept within narrow limits, and
trading was mainly of a local character.
Oats were fairly active and unsettled. The
opening was easy, and remained So for some
time. An advance in corn produced fair buy
ing, a better feeling and an advance of HQMc
Later in thesession offerings increased, and all
tbe advance disappeared, and the mamot
closed quiet and easy at a shade below the
prices ot yesterday.
Trading was quito active in mess pork. Tbe
feeling was weak during the greater portion of
the session. Prices declined 3032Xc but to
ward the close rallied 7S?10c, and the market
closed steady.
A fair trade was reported in the lard market,
and the feeling was easy. Prices ruled about
2Kc lower, ana the market closed rather tame.
Quite a brisk business was transacted in the
market for short rib sides, mainly for Septem
ber delivery. Prices ruled 2J45c higher early,
but a reduction of oQ'Kcwas submitted to
later, and the market closed quiet and steady.

Real estate was quiet yesterday, more on ac
count of tbe weather than anything else. Still,
several transactions were closed up and a num
ber of new ones initiated. An Important trans
fer was postponed until to-day on the plea of
the purchaser that the weather was too hot to
sign checks.
No conclusion has been reached In regard to
the disposition of tbe Exchange surplus,
amounting to about (8,000. Tbe total amount
is 815,000, but only tho former sum is available
for distribution or such use as the Exchange
may see proper. Tho matter was discussed at
length yesterday before, during and after busi
ness hours. Some opposed a pro rata division
among members, as that would render It liable
to be taxed as dividends. Some favored Its re
tention, to be used in possible improvements.
If a large building be erected on the lot on tbe
lower side, it will be necessary to put a glass
roof on tbe Exchange
Others were in favor of using it to buy up
Exchange stock when offered at a low figure,
and afterward retiring it. This, they thought
would make the remaining shares more valu
able The latter plan soemed to be the most
popular, and It will probably be adopted at the
meeting to be held this afternoon. The Ex
chance Is necessary to the business Interests of
Pittsburg, and anything that promises to In
crease iu standing and influence will receive
public approval.
The chartering of a traction company for
the Southside Is in line with the suggestions ot
The Dispatch a few weeks ago, that that
was one of the best openings for rapid transit
In either city. The population Is large enough
to support such a road in magnificent style, and
there is no doubt that It would be profitable
from the beginning. Rapid Jtranslt Is doing a
good work for Pittsburg.
Thirty mortgaces were filed for record yes
terday, representing about 864,000. The larg
est was for 813.800, and the next largest for
85,000. Seven were for over 82,000. The abund
ance of home money and tbe dullness of the
speculative interest are favorable to this busi
ness, which is rapidly growing in Importance.
Pittsburg real estate offers larger returns and
has fewer risks than any other investment

the month of June, 1890. We urge our farmer
friends to respond to tbe Superintendent's ap
peal for statistics, and to begin now and keep
accurate accounts of their business for the
census year, and be ready to furnish correct
figures to the census enumerator next June
And it will be an immense advantage to them
to keep on doing so for themselves year after
Here is a nut for Pennsylvania farmers to
crack: England, Scotland, Nova Scotia and
Prince Edward island, send us potatoes, and,
strange as it may seem, they can be freighted
from these countries tor a less price than they
can be freighted from parts of cur own. And
tbe different lines running from these coun
tries are so numerous and move with such
clock-like regularity, that more dependence
can be placed on their arrivals than some of
our own transportation companies. The trans
portation companies should rise and explain.

Taxation of MorlBes and Ibe Property
Cpon Which Ther Are Based.
A writer in -Farm and Firetlde has this to
say upon a subject of general importance:
"After reading tbe pros and cons regarding
taxation of mortgages, and also the property
tbey are based on, and never having seen a
plan devised that salts me fully, I would ,llke
to suggest one Taxing both has a tendency, as
you say, to increase thB rate of interest, and I
find its injustice offers an excuse to a large ma-
iority for concealment; and when the mortgage
i concealed. It Is a good pecuniary Investment
for the holder that the mortgagor pays in a
roundabout way which he hardly sees through.
I would suggest as a remedy for concealment
tbe taxation of realty only, at its full value
making the holder ot the realty pay the whole
tax levied thereon, and the enactment of a
statute enabling him to indorse oa the
mortgage note such a proportion of the whole
tax paid on such realty as the amount of the
mortgage note is to tbe appraised value of
the realtr.
"This also would do a needed act of justice
in the newer States and Territories, where a
large proportion of Eastern capital finds in
vestment, and drains the Individuals of those
localities to buildup Eastern States, Instead of
paying that increased rate of interest or the
tax on the borrowed capital to build up their

There was a small boom in values at the Oil
Exchange yesterday, caused by tbe receipt of
the pipe line reports, which.were decidedly bull
ish. The figures presented by the National
Transit and the Tide Water lines showed a de
creased production during June of about 800,
000 barrels. Other small lines may reduce this
somewhat, but not enough to make any mate
rial difference.
Angust oil opened at 91, where the market
held until the reports came In, when It jumped
to 92, but it soon descended from its high
perch to 9 from which, in tbe last few
minutes, there was a slight rally to 92, at which
the market closed. Reports from other ex
changes reported business very slow. Here It
amounted to about 200.000 barrels. Owing to
the near approach of July deliveries cash oil is
entirely neglected. September is hardly
thought of. Tuesday's clearings were 234,000

There were hints yesterday of a coming

There are no surface indications of an im-
?rovement in Philadelphia Gas, Electric or the

do to hold their own.
Captain Barbour gave tbe stock brokers
plenty of rope yesterday, but they failed to im
prove the opportunity. The orders were few

' Stocks Strong on This Baals
Tbe Bulla la Clover.
New York. July 10. The stock market to
day reflected the growing confidence that the
Presidents in session at Chicago will be able to
cope with all the difficulties which may come
up before them for adjustment, and that har
mony in the Northwest is only a matter ot
time. The market was strong at most all the
way outand not only was there a liberal cover
ing ot shorts, but tbe buying for the long ac
count was of the best quality, the foreigners
responding liberally to the encouraging ad
vices cabled over last evening and this morn
ing. The leading bears are reported to have
bought a line ot stocks equaling 25.000 shares,
though this may be an exaggeration.
The feeling on the street that the harmony
displayed at the meeting of the Presidents
yesterday was a valid bull argument was very
strong this morning, and the strength which
characterised the later dealings yesterday was
still prominent at the opening of business,
which, although London prices were not quite
up to ours of last evening, was sufficient to open
most of tbe leading shares from to K Per
cent higher than they closed last night
Rumors of an important scheme to secure
harmony la the future were circulated and
took the shape that tbere was to be a syndicate
which would purchase the control of the Chi
cago, Burlington and Northern, and so take it
out of the way as a disturber of rates Is the
Northwest. This afterward was changed to
that tbe Chicago, Burlington and Qnlncy was
to put In its 30 per cent of the stock and the
other roads were to supply the capital to pur
chase the remainder of enough stock to secure
control. The story had a stimulating effect
upon the speculation, and there was not only
a marked Increase in the amount of
business done, but prices-advanced rapidl;,
with Burlington, Atchison, St. Paul and New
England in tbe lead. Sugar Trust also became
quite a feature and felt tbe stimulus of the
recent decision, moving up per cent New
England was strong on the lease of tbe Derby
Railroad to tbe Housatonlc. Chicago and
Alton, however, began to feel the effects of its
policy, and sold to-day at 125, a loss of 9 per
cent from Its last recorded sale. In the after
noon the market again settled down, and real
izing sagged the list off from the best figures,
butthe closn was dull and steadv, with mate
rial gains for most of the list. The active list
is higher this evening, and St. Paul preferred
is up 2. the common IK. Wheeling and Lake
Erie preferred 1, Chicago, Burlington and
Qjuincy Northwest IVi and others smaller
Railroad bonds were dull, the sales reaching
$1,005,000, while the only feature of the deal
ings was Texas Pacific, second increase, which
furnished 1137,000. Tbe market was steady to
firm, but the fluctuations were made within
narrow limits, though there were a few marked
changes among the Inactive bonds. Chicago,
Sc Panl and Minneapolis rose 3 to 127.

The Potters Decide to Stay Inside of That
Steubentiile, Jnly 10. The National
Union Potters' Convention was in secret
session all day. President O'Neil, how
ever, stated to the correspondent that a com
mittee ot three quietly waited upon Mana
ger Donaldson, of the Steubenville Pottery,
to see if the strike conld not be amicably
settled, but that he would listen to no com
nromise. nor recognize their wishes or union.
I As a result at to-day's meeting a boycott
upon the product of the pottery was de
clared. The officers said it would be en
forced through the national organization
and locals here and in Canada. Previous
to the adjournment on Friday, however,
every effort will be made to come to an am
icable settlement. This is not probable, as
both sides are firm.
The question of leaving the Knights of
Labor came up lor discussion to-day, out
the movement was defeated two to one. A
measure of importance to the West particu
larly was passed, extending greater powers
to the Executive Board west of the Alle
ghenies, giving it more enlarged powers
over their local and home matters than
fnrmprlv- nnrl less acconntabilitv to the
Central Board at Trenton. The election of
officers will probably take place to-morrow,
and the convention finally adjourn on Fri

A dispatch has been received at the Navy
Department from Admiral Gherardi, at Port-au-Prince,
saying tbat affairs at Hayti are
quiet and that there is no fighting of moment.
He also reported that there bad been no change
in the political situation since his last report.
Legitime holds Port-au-Prince and Hippolyte
remains outside of tbe town. The Osslpee has
now been at Hayti longer than was intended,
and the department will relieve her as soon as
another vessel can be fitted out.
The provisions of the United States stat
utes against the importation of contract labor
ers are tolerably well understood throughout
Europe by this time, and circulars have been
dispatched by the steamship lines to emigra
tion agents in the interior, to instruct prospec
tive passengers as to tbe answers they must
make to important questions propounded by
the authorities on their arrival at American
ports. It Is safe to say tbat the law will be suc
cessfully evaded henceforth. The lines run
ning to Canadian ports anticipate a largely in
creased business in the future, and many who
were refused a landing at New York and
Boston have taken this indirect route to the
States. The principal Increase to their traffic
will, however, come from assisted emigration,
which is assuming serious proportions. Tbe
undesirable classes sent away from Ireland and
England by poor law guardians and the socie
ties formed for that purpose are directed to
Quebec, and thence across the line, thus evad
iig any Inquiry as to their status.

Country Frodnee Jobbing Prices.
Blackberries and whortleberries are in over
supply and prices are drifting downward. Tbe
same is true of apples, which are coming in
freely from the South. The movement of pota
toes is very active, but there has been no ad
vance in prices. A Liberty street commission
man reports the largest sales of potatoes on
record yesterday. Tbe total was 800 barrels,
and an average of 600 barrels dally this week.
The speculator who bought potatoes is a loser
tbe past week. A loss ot 60c per barrel Is re
ported in some instances. A Liberty street
commission merchant who has just returned
from New York reports that everything in
produce lines at the metropolis is in over
supply. The stock of lemons coming to port
ot late is In poor shape, and choice grades are
tending higher.

An order for 17 carloads of pine shingles
from Johnstown was placed with Pittsburg
firms this week, and other lumber In propor
tion. A leading dealer is of the opinion that
there buildingof Johnstown will add fully 20 per
cent to the volume ot our city's lumber trade
this season. When It is remembered that pros
pects were good Tor an extra trade before the
great cata strophe, it is plain that this year will
beat all former records In lumber lines.

A Remarkable Experience.
Mr. H. Robertson, a native of Scotland, but
who has been a resident of this country for sev
eral year, has been a victim of kidney disease
with tho 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 tbe bowels, high col
ored urine, and he noticed that sometimes it
contained a reddish, brick-colored sediment,
and at other times tbe sediment was of a ligbt
isn color. He noticed tbat be felt very tired in
the 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 bis stomach
after eating, and on account of the kidneys not
performing their function properly, bis blood
became charged with rheumatic poison, so that
he had much Daln about his shoulders and dif
ferent parts of his body. As be 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 the best doctors I could hear
of, but was fast getting worse. I became mel
ancholy and tnonght 1 could not live. Finally
I began treatment with tbe 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 bave
been entirely cared by these physicians, and I
gladly sign my name. H. Robertson."
Anyone wishing to call upon Mr. Robertson,
or write him with reference to bis case, can
have bis full address by calling at THE POLY
PATHIC INSTITUTE. 420 Penn ave. Office
