MONDAY. July 15, ISS9. (
The situation is not a very favorable one
for cattle dealers. Prices are off 10 to 20
cents from last week's rates. A leading dro
ver said: "I sold as nice 1,500 to 1,600 pound
cattle as the markets can produce at $4 40,
for the reason that I could not get any person
to pre me more. The cost of these to me at
the yards, when I count freight, bay, commis
sion and shrinkage, cannot be less than SI 35.
Yon will readily see that I will eet very little
for my time, troublo and capital invested.
"Kerr's Island drovers have not been having
very good pickings the past few weeks, and not
a few have lost money on their operations."
Supplies were in excess of demand and. ex
cept for smooth, light stock, weighing from
1,250 to 1,350 pounds, markets were slow at a
drop of 1015c from last w eek's prices. The

Receipts were considerably larger than last
week, Dut none too large for demand. Markets
were active from the start, and everything de
sirable found ready buyers at full last week's
prices. One carload of extra fine wethers were
bought b Lowcnste'.n & Ackernianfor Eastern
markets at 5c per pound. Both last week and
this there have been heavy Durcbases of sheep
at Herr's Inland for Est Liberty and eastern
markets, and butchers comnlain that this has
kerved to stiffen prices. Prime native wethers
were quoted at $4 75 to $5 25, but nothing could
be traced that brought above S3, and it required
a first-class 115 pound wether to bring this

CATTLE FOE LUE0PE.
Extensive Preparations for Shipment
Through the Wbolo Summer.
Chicago, Jul 15 Arrangements have been
completed for the exportation of an unusually
large number of cattle within the next three or
four months. Nlson Morris, the heavy cattle
dealer of this city, ha secured all of the vacant
room on all of the outgoing steamers from New
York for Liverpool, Glasgow and London for a
period of twoorthree months, j. L. Hathaway,
of Boston, and his syndicate have engaged all
ot the room on the steamers of the Warren
line from Boston for the months of July. Au
gust and beptember, and Meyer Goldsmith, of
JSevc York, has engaged the same line of
steamers for the month of October. It will be
readily seen thata vast number of cattle can
be handled during that time. Nearly all of
these cattle will be sent forward from here and
some will go from Kentucky. The occasion of
this foreign movement of cattle is the low
price here and shortage of the European cattle
supply and consequent high prices there. The
export rates, however, are very much dearer
than they were a year ago. At that time the
rate to Liverpool aud Glasgow from New York
wa- from 36 to 40 shillings her head. The room
just engaged was taken at the rate of bO shill
ings to Liverpool and Glasgow and 90 shillings
to London. 'Ihe first consignment of this
season of range cattle arrived here this morn
ing. They are from the ranch of Piore
Wiveaux. and consist ot nine carloads of steers
and six carloads of cows. They were shipped

Wheat Strengthened by an Unexpectedly

Chicago A good speculative business was
transacted in wheat to-day, and the market
ruled rather strong, though there were occa
sional spurts of weakness. While last week
the market declined on the prospects of liberal
receipts of new wheat. It ruled steadier to-day
on the possibilities that expectations may not
be realized. At Minneapolis not mora than
half the quantity was received that bad been
talked about, and at St. Louis instead of 300,
000 bushels only 143,000 bushels were received.
Out of 106 cars of wheat received here 78 cars
were new and 58 cars of contract grade.
It was feared that the movement might not
be as free as expected early in the session and
this Induced some buying and covering of
"shorts." The visible supply decrease ex
ceeded expectations, and was a strengthening
feature. The opening was J40K bigher than
Saturday's closing; declined HK, tben ad
vanced Jc; again rnled weaker and closed
about KSXc bigher than Saturday.
But little interest was manifested in corn,
trading being light and fluctuations narrow,
with most of the business confined to local oper
ators. The feeling was steady, prices varying
but little from Saturday's range, closing a shade
Oats were only moderately active and a shade
firmer, but price fluctuations small.
A fairly active business was transacted in
mess pork at an irregular range of prices.
Early the market was stronger, and opening
sales were made at 10c advance, which was fol
lowed by a further advance of 5c Later the
offerings were moderately free and a weak
feeling was developed, accompanied with a re
duction of 17J30a Toward the close the
feeling was steadier and prices rallied 710c,
A firmer feeling was manifested in the lard
market. Opening sales were made at 5c ad
vance, but the demand fell off and prices re
ceded again, closing at about outside figures.
A little more life was exhibited in the mar
ket for short rib sides. Jsarlv the feeling was
stronger and prices -ruled 2$5c higher, but
the offerings were slightly enlarged later and
the advance was lost. The market closed quiet
at outside figures.

Local Investors Said to be Drawing
Ont of the Sugar Trust.
THAT PLATE GLASS DIVIDEND.
Jive Per Cent Money Much Harder to Get
Than Earlier in the Season.
LOWER FENN AYENUE USDER.A CLODD
There are signs that the Sugar Trust has
about run its course of inflation of values,
and that a reduction to a lower level is
next in order. It is stated that Pittsburg
investors in this "temi-mvthical security
have failed to realize the large profits ex
pected and are hedging or drawing out as
fast as possible Local stocks are safer and
better every way.
A "Stockholder" writes: "Will you
please explain the remark in your paper of
this morning, referring to the Pittsburg
Plate Glass Company, as a stock whereon
dividends are extremely problematical.
"What does this mean?"
Inasmuch as President Ford is a good
authority on the matter involved in the
above inquiry, I quote him in reply: "The
condition of the olant is about this: The
'stockholders at their meeting on the 18th
ult, voted to increase the indebtedness
(750,000, for which a mortgage on the property
of the company has been issued. This mort
gage is in addition to an older one of $200,000,
both making 950,000. From this itis apparent
that future dividends, if any at all, will be
small and far between until the above in
A gentleman who has placed a large number
of mortgages this season remarked yesterday:
"As the fall season approaches, which, unless
all signs fail, will bring in an Unusually large
trade, 5 per cent money grows scarcer. It never
was abundant, and may now be called
stringent. Excellent reasons must be shown to
justify a rate below 6)$ or 6. A S10.000 mort
gage was placed to-day on Oakland property,
but it is under a heavy rental, and is so desir
able that it can be sold any time at an advance
over its appraised value. On ordinary property
I think it would be next to Impossible to raise
much money at 6 per cent."
This does not mean that money is scarce, but
that it is being held In the expectation that it
Will loan up when business revives in the fall.
Of 27 mortgages filed for record yesterday,
the largest was for $5,673. Twelve were for
1.000 and upward. All was borne money, and
was for purchase and betterment purposes.
Notwithstanding there have been a number
of transfers ot real estate on Penn avenue, be
tween Tenth street and the Point, within the
past two or three months, improvements on
that thoroughfare between the points indicated
are in a very backward state. Instead of put
ting up new buildings that would bring in a
rental corresponding to the value of the land
from $1,000 to $2,000 a foot the purchasers al
low the old ones to remain, and as they are
generally of an inferior kind in respect of size
and architectural finish, they give an appear
ance to that part of the city scarcely in harmo
ny with that which may be observed farther up
It Is hoped and believed, however, that the
near future will witness a great improvement
on historic Penn in the demolition of many of
the antiquated buildings, and the erectlou in
their stead ot an equal number which will rival
in size and convenience any in the city. The
Exposition will greatly assist this necessary
movement, as will, also, the opening of Dia
Boston Is holding her own in fine buildings.
At least 350 brick, stone and iron buildings
have been commenced in that city since the
first of January, of which at least 37 will cost

reference to Philadelphia, but they apply with
equal force and pertinency to Pittsburg: "The

real estate and prominent builders, is to tbe
effect that the business of this present year has
been done on a sound financial basis, and that
as a rule the building ventures represent but
an average business risk, with very few cases
where extra hazardous risks have been taken,
and In these few cases it is a question of loca
tion only, which may yet prove very advan

will help to fill a long-felt want in that part of

there were houses to accommodate tbe people

A TYPICAL DAI.
The Midsummer Dullneas Still Apparent tit
the Htock Excbance.
Nothing was done at tbe morning stock call
yesterday except making a few figures. There
was less pressure to buy or sell than for some
time, and tbe difference between bids, and
offers was in most cases too great to be settled
by concessions, especially when neither side
seemed at all anxious to do business. There
was neither news nor gossip worth repeating.
In tbe afternoon there was a small movement
in Philadelphia Gas and Electric at about Sat
urday's figures. Tbe list showed no particular
changes in the bidding. A number of brokers
and investors are absent on their vacations.

Tbe Oil Bfarket Braces Tip a Utile, bnt Sill!
Although the oil market yesterday was con
siderably below par, it was better than on Sat
urday, and as good as any day last week. Still,
consiaerable dissatisfaction with the new rules
was expressed, and it is probable, unless there
shonld be a radical improvement in a short
time, that the exchanges will be called upon to
rescind them. A few stanch friends of tbe new
system still hold out for it, however, and assert
that when it becomes thoroughly understood
by outsiders they will come in and lift the mar
ket out of tbe rut.
August oil fluctuated very little seven
eighths of a cent. The opening, closing and
lowest was 92. and the highest 92. There was
good buying in New York, but elsewhere trad
ing was on a limited scale as compared with
the good old times. Here tbe transactions
amonnted to about 300,000 barrels. One or two
sales of cash oil were made at 93. Nothing
was done In tbe September option. The scarcity
of certificates is the principal obstacle to
handling late months.

New York, July 15. The stock market to
day was quiet all tbe way out, but there was
until the last hour a 'decidedly strongitone,
which raised quotations to a materially higher
level than those of Saturday. The improve
ment, however, brought in realizing sales and
a large portion of the gains were lost. The
foreigners seem to have most confidence in the
future of values for American stocks, and this
morning tbe London figures showed material
advances over prices of Saturday, and this re
sponded to the improvement, which was helped
along by liberal buying orders from abroad.
There was no pressure to sell stocks, and while
there was little demand the covering of shorts
kept the upward movement going, but the loan
ing rates for stocks shows that there must bare
been a material reduction or the outstanding
short interest in the past few davs.
Onening prices here were generally from
to K per cent better than Saturday's closing
figures, but Missouri Pacific was exceptional,
with a gain of per cent, induced by the re
ports that there were to be efforts made to im
prove the rates in the Southwest, aud at the
same time give them greater stability. Tbe
market remained quiet, thongb lead was active.
The trusts all opened materially bigher, sugar
being up IK pet cent, but there was no move
ment of importance in the list until toward
noon, when Chicago Gas, which had dropped
from 67K to 56, suddenly shot up to 5S Re
newed Inquiry for the Grangers, in which Lon
don was very prominent, resulted in an advance
of li in Rock Island, while Burlington and the
others gained fractional amounts.
After noon the general market was complete
ly barren of feature, but tbe Big Four stock
rose 2 per cent, and the new C, C. C. fc St.
L. preferred gained a like amount. Tbe rest of
tbe list, howerer.dlsplayed steady strengtn.and
the highest prici-s were reached toward 2 P.M.
The realizations tben began, and Atchison led
off with a drop of 1 per cent, followed by St.
Paul. -Missouri Pacific and the trusts, bugar
dropping 1. The market finally closed quiet
but weak, with most stocks at close to the
opening prices. The final changes are irregu-.
lar, but advances are more numerous, and de
clines are for fractional amounts only, while
Big Four is up . C , O, C. 4 St. L. preferred

Rawroad bonds w ere again dull, and the ma-
Jorlty of tbe list showed no motion or feature,
n a few instances. however,there were material
declines established from last previous sales
among the inactive bonds. The sales of all

FOE ElYER HARBORS.
United States Fnglueer Officers Recommend
Money for Improvements.
Washington, July 15. The reports of
United States engineer officers in charge of
river and harbor improvements received at
the War Department show the following
estimates of appropriations necessary for the
prosecution of the river and harbor works
in Louisiana and Texas next year:
Bayou Courtableau, Louisiana, 12,107;
Bayou Plaque Mine, Louisiana, $100,000;
Sabine Pass, Texas, $1,000,000; Calcassieu
river and passes, Louisiana, $10,000; Sabine
river, Louisiana and Texas, $4,521; Bayou
Lafourche, Louisiana, 300,000; Tickpaw
river, Louisiana, $1,000; Anute river, Lou
For Arkansas works the estimates are:
Arkansas river, Arkansas, $450,000; remov
ing obstructions from same, $90,000; White
river, $91,815; Fourche river, $7,650; Black
river, Arkansas ind Missouri, $26,000;
Black river. Missouri, $26,000; Petit Jean
river, $35,000; St. Francis river, Arkansas,
$16,000: St. Francis river, Missouri, $25,000;
Red river, above Fulton, $2,000; Little
Mississippi River Commission, salaries
and expenses, $35,000; continuing surveys,
$150,000; for Mississippi river to the mouth
of the Ohio, $4,000,000; for work at Hick
man, Ky., $111,250; at Greenville, Miss.",
$350,000; Vicksburg, $175,000; Natchez,
$250,000; New Orleans, $200,000; Red and
Atchafalaya rivers, $350,000.
In their report transmitting the esti
mates the commission say that owing to the
fact that no appropriations were available
during the preceding year, much of the
timeaod money at the disposal of the com
mission during the past year was expended
in repairing damages to work already begun
and getting ready for beginning on new
projects. For this reason not much actual
progress in the systematic work of improve
ment is reported. Tbe commission depre
cates the action of Congress in allowing the
river and harbor bill to fail, as it promises
to jeopardize the works now under way aud
render necessary large expenditures to re
store them. A strong complaint is also made
against the refusal of Congress to provide
for tbe salaries of civilian employes and
traveling expenses of the commission.
CLARION OIL WELLS.
The Farmers Reported for Once Abend of
tbe Bad "peculator.
Claeion, July 15. The story published
in a Pittsburg paper to-day about Lucinda
is evolved purely from the imagination.
The stern facts revealed by the drill were
too much for the speculators, aud the
farmers who took the money they
offered last April got the best oi it
and have it still. Five new wells were
started within a month, and two of them,
nearly finished, are paying producers. The
locations are near the older wells. Piper &
Co. have one of them, located 300 feet south
west of the well on the Kribbs farm, and
on Saturday had put out 80 barrels Jor the
first day, and is to-day doing 40 barrels.
Greenlee & Co. have another, 300 feet south
of the originally discovered well, and it is
drilling nearly through the sand to-day. It
has more gas but not as much oil as the
Piper well. '
200 CLAIMANTS FOR $1,000,000.
An Interesting Contest for tne Property of a
Sajt Fbancisco, July 15. Tbe contest
over the property ot the late Thomas H.
Blythe was commenced in Probate Court
to-day. It promises to be one of the most
celebrated cases ever brought to the atten
tion of the courts on the Pacific coast, as
the property involved is valued at $4,000,000
aud the claimants number over 200 persons.
Blythe died in this State six months ago,
and his estate passed into the hands of a
public administrator. Claimants from dif
ferent parts of the world soon appeared.
The most prominent of these are Florence
Blythe, who avers she is the illegitimate
child of the deceased millionaire, and Alice
E. Dickerson, who claims that Blythe, dur
ing his lifetime, recognized her as his wife.
