THE PITTSBURG DISFATCH'WEDNESDAY,
The Shoo Upper Industry ' on the
Uoom rrospccts for Fall
SEVER SO BRIGHT AS AT PRESENT.
An Abundant Output of Domestic Sweitzcr
SOME SUGGESTIONS ON ADVERTISING
Office of Pnrsucno dispatch, I
TUESDAY. July 23, lbS9. J
J. D. Chantler & Cd. ttre the leading
representatives of the shoe upper manufac
turing industry cot only of Pittsburg but of
the United States as well. Their establish
ment, which, for want of room in the Mc
Cance block, was a few months ago removed
to the fifth floor of the Diamond street
Dispatch building, is now giving steady
employment to SO persons, two-thirds ot whom
are women and girls. A representative of the
firm was seen to-day and gate the situation of
trade as follows:
"Wo hate had a very satisfactory sir months'
trade, and an increase in volume of fully 5
per cent over the corresponding period of last
vear. Our July trade shows no falling off.
Orders are coming In freely from the bouth
and West, mure than sufficient to make np for
the decline in local demand Which always
conies at this reason of the vear.
"Krom the East heavy orders are coming for
brick shippers, which in the past year
or two have become a promi
nent feature bf onr industry." In an
swer to the query: "What proportion of onr
shoemakers uw nse tbo manufactured up
pers?" the answer given was: "Fully 99 per
cent." It is within the memory of those by no
means Did when the shoo upper industry was
unknown. A deiade ago the majority of boot
and shoemakers here fitted out boots and shoes
complete. Xow they would be left in the rear
if they attempted to do this. The shoe upper
manufacturer, by improved machinery and sys
tematized labor, is erabled to work up the en
tire calf or kid skin so that nothing is lost No
one man can compete with this industry bv
doire the entire work, as was done in the good
old days of yore.
The gentleman from wllom these ticts were
gathered Slid: "I do not believe there has
been a time in the entire history ot the shoe
tipjier industry when the outlook was better.
All signs omt to a very lively fall trade Our
customers hae been of late only ordering for
immediate wants Local trade has been rather
slack for a few weeks. Shoe manufacturers in
our bailiwick are unusually bare of goods.
When the fall boom comes, to nhich all signs
nou point, it will tako hustling to meet de
mands. I feel confident we will soon again be
compelled to increase our force, as we had to
do a few months ago "
The prospects for an extraordinary output of
donietic Sneitzer cheese was never better
than it is now. Eastern Ohio and Wisconsin
are the great centers of this industry. Starke
and Columbiana counties, O., and Duane
com. ty, Wis., have the lead in America for pro
ducing Sweltzer cheese. One of our leading
jobbers in this line said recently: "There is no
doubt that the volume of production this year
m ill beat all former record"!. Pasturage in the
hweitzcr cheese regions was never better. This
Time last year prices were 2 to 3c per pound
inciter than now. The knocking out of so many
saloons in this county ha had the effect of cur
tailing our trade to a considerable extent. New
bweitzer Is already coming in, and by another
week our warehouse will be ucll stocked with
it If it should go as low as 10c per pound the
maker would lose money. Milk cannot be had
in the cheese making districts under tl 00 per
100 pounds, and when cheese goes to 10c there
is a dead loss to the manufacturer. Tnc price
of new domestic bweitzer now is 12c, and at
this figure markets are slow in view of the
LITE STOCK MAKKETS.

Wheat More Active nnd Uigiicr All Along
the Lino Heavy Buying on Foreign
Account Uamors of it Lnrse Snle
of Floor for Export.
Chicago Increased activity and a large in
crease in the volume of speculative business
was witnessed In wheat to-day; prices were
higher all around, A nervous and unsettled
feeling again prevailed, however, and fluctua
tions it ere frequent within a range of lJic A
feature of the trade Was excellent buying for
foreign account, both here and in New York.
That foreign shorts were covering freely here
was regarded as certain, and there was another
33,000 bushel lot of cash old spring wheat taken
for Glasgow account. Enough, at least, is
being done in an export way, at present to
greatly encoarage holders.
A strong factor In the market was the smaller
estimated receipts for to-morrow. Temporary
Strength was also given to the market by a wild
rumor of a very large sale of flour for export at
St. Louis afterward contradicted. Conserva
tive houses hero are advising their customers
that the market is likely to remain narrow un
til the spring wheat harvest progresses far
enough to warrant a reliable estimate of the
probable yield. Crop reports from the North
vest indicate a fair improvement in the Situa
tion there during the last tn o weeks
A fair degree of speculative activity was
manifested in corn, and higher prices were es
tablished. Trading, however, was rather spas
modic, fluctuations covering KJi range.
Tho better tone was attributed mainly to the
active cash demand, better cables and firm
feeling in wheat. The demand was Confined
mainly to shorts, though some buying for in
vestment was reported. Transactions were
confined almost entirely to the near fntures
July, August and Beptcmber. The market
opened at about the closing prices of yesterday,
was firm and gradually advanced Kc. eased
office, fluctuated frequently, and final quota
tions were J6c higher than yesterday.
In oats a tinner feeling was developed, and
prices averaged slightly higher, but price
changes were confined within narrow limits
Only a fair trade was reported in the market
for mess pork, and the feeling was easy. A
few trades were made early at 2c advance,
but a weaker I eel In? was soon developed, and
prices receded 1517Jc Toward the close the
market was quiet but a trifle tieadier.and prices
The lard market attracted very tittle atten
tion. Eatly sales were made at yesterday's
closing figures but a reduction of 2K5c was
submitted to later, and the market closed
Trading was moderate in the market for short
rib sides. At the opening sales of limited
quantities were made at yesterday's closing
figures, but a weaker feeling was gradually de
veloped, and a reduction of 67Kc was sub
mitted to. Xho market closed quiet at inside

Crops In the Dominion.
Toronto, July 23. Reports as to the condi
tion of crops in Manitoba and at many points
in Ontario are published. As a whole the re
ports are satisfactory. In Manitoba wheat
will be an average crop, barley a two-thirds
crop and oats a poor crop. Tho situation is not
all that could be desired, but there seems to be
no good ground for the despairing reports that
have been circulated. Reports from points in
Ontario are generally satisfactory. Fall wheat
will be a good avtrage crop, except In low
lands where serious injury was done by the
June rains Barley promises a good yield and
oats a fair crop. The root crop seems to
promise well in Eastern Ontario, but for roots
in some districts rain is wanted. The corn
crop seems to be a failure while the hay crop
is heavy and well saved. ,

Beaver Falls Glass Company About Beady
to Resume Operations.
HAFPI TOILERS TIPS FOE INVESTORS
"W. A. Herron & Sons offered the Newell
estate property, corner of Forbes street and
Shady lane, at Orphans' Court sale yester
day. There was quite an active bidding,
which run the property up to $31,500, but
the administrator withdrew it on that bid,
and postponed the sale for one week.
All the right of way for the pipe line of
the Pennsylvania "Water Company, more'
familiarly known as the "WilkinsburgVater
Company, has been secured from the pump
ing station at Wildwood, on the Allegheny
river, to North Braddock, a distance of
about six miles. From iniormation derived
from members of the company yesterday it
can be stated with a reasonable degree of
certainty that the entire district through
which the line passes will hare a full sup
ply of water by September 1. Work on the
reservoir, pumping station and on the portion
of the line not yet completed, is being pushed
as fast as possible.
I was informed yesterday that the Beaver
Falls Glass Company is about to commence
operations after a long spell of idleness during
which extensive repairs were made and an ad

The most effective argument for protection
Is to point out the condition of the working
mer&and women in the most prosperous indus
trial settlements of the country. On June 28,
Labor Commissioner Hotchkiss, of Connecti
cut, invited the Commissioners of Labor Statis
tics to an Inspection of three of the largest
and most prosperous silk and cotton mills In
Now England. They fonnd that they were
finely lighted and ventilated, with beautiful
grounds on which were scattered the neat cot
tages of the operatives, decorated with flowers
and hidden by vines They taw mllU filled
with busy workers, surrounded by beautiful
growing plants. They saw smiling faces and
rnddy cheeks bright eyes and cheerful counte
nances everywhere. They saw workmen's cot
tages adorned with brus3els carpets In the par
lors handsome shades and flowers in the
windows, sewing machines, organs, and even
pianos These substantial evidences of thrift
among the toilers under the present tariff sys
tem are not confined to New England. They
abound in Pittsburg, where brussels carpets
and pianos are too common to attract atten
tion, and where, which is far better, a large
proportion of the worktngmen own the houses
they lire in.
A stock broker remarked yesterday: "The
real estate people are encroaching upon our
domain. A number of our former customers
have dropped stocks like hot potatoes and are
putting their monev in realty and mortgages
The only objection I have to this is that it is, to
some extent, hurting our business for all must
admit that real estate is a safe and profitable
investment. However, I look for stocks to
brace np before long, and then we may be able
to hold our own against thereat estate deal
ers" If men will speculate they should do so
understanding. There are two ways of mak
ing money on Wall street a rule for tho in
vestor and a rule for the operator which, if
followed, will almost certainly lead to success
The first rule Is to buy only the securities of
corporations with which the investor Is entirely
familiar. The second rule is to buy in seasons
or great depression, paying outright for what
you buy, not purchasing on a margin, and sell
ing with tho rise which must inevitably come.
To understand all about a railroad, you should
either be connected with its management or
operations, or make it a subject of special and
diligent study and investigation. The most
successful men on Wall street Investors, not
speculators all the men who have made great
fortunes have followed one or the other of
these two rules Any man who goes Into Wall
street to speculate blindly, without a knowl
edge of the property which he buys and with
out reference to the condition of the money
market, of trade generally, of our exports and
imports, of gold shipments and all the factors
that enter into the calculations of shrewd
financiers must inevitably be a loser.
The condition of real estate is good for the
season, and there is every indication of a rather
more than usually active fall trade. The in
quiry is largely for houses or lots on which to
build, and only to a small degree for specula
tion. The New York Stock Exchange has an un
listed" department, where corporations trusts
and possibly other concerns whose legal status
is not well defined, can have their certificates
dealt in without making any statement as to
their finances or operations To the public it
simply appears that these various certificates
are dealt in at the New York Stock Exchange
and under its sanction and autnoilty, and the
mere title of "unlisted" does not move the re
sponsibility in popular estimation any more
than a sub-clause in fine type removes the
responsibility of an express company or a life
insurance company. This exposition of what
borders very closely upon fraud, should open
the eyes of the public to the danger of dealing
In this class of securities
The actuaries of America have formed an
association. At the first meeting, or rather the
meeting for organization, which was recently
held in New York city, there were present a
large number of them, representing the princi
pal life insurance companies of the United
States and Canada. The title of the associa
tion, as adopted, is the Actuarial Society of
America, and its objects are those of promot
ing this special department of science, by per
sonal intercourse and, otherwise, through the
reading of papers discussion, and such other
methods as may be thought advisable. It the
society follows up its purpose and there ap
pears no reason why it may not the fraternity
will certainly be benefited by the orsanization
and tho cause of sound life insurance greatly

The Loon Expected Boom In LaNorlaOIakea
A number of orders for stocks wero filled
yesterday, and the result was a strong and
active market for several of the favorites La
Moria and Philadelphia Qas especially. Even
the tractions were a trifle stronger. The only
thing that displayed particular weakness was
Switch and Signal.
LaNoria was the leader in point of activity.
It opened strong with the sale ot a round
bundle at . In tho afternoon the bulls got
down to work, and gave it the biggest boost It
has had for a long time. Everybody seemed
hungry for it, and kept running up the price
until 2 was reached. It closed steady at that
figure. "It will be 8 to-morrow," said a prom
inent broker. Over 900 shares were required
to supply the demand. It was repeated that
the forthcoming report would be highly favor
able, and to this the boom is to be attributed.
After La Noria, Philadelphia Gas was the
most active stock. It opened at 36 and closed
strong at 36 on sales of 450 shares More of It
could have been sold at the same figure, but
holders thongbt they would get more by wait
ing. After call 87 was asked. Sproul & Law-'
rence have been the principal buyers for sev
eral days but the ground for their action Is
carefully concealed. It can be said that the
new trust movement grows in disfavor the
more It is talked about.
There was a good demand for bank and in
surance stocks but bids and offers were too
far apart to accomplish anything. The fea
tures of the day's operations are given below.

Several of the leading bankers reported a
fair run of business yesterday, but new devel
opments were scarce. All of them complained
of the scarcity of new paper, but said that con
siderable of the old was being renewed. The
flow of money continues In the direction of the
banks, but the supply is not excessive for the
season of the year, when there is always a
lull in business Bankers expect to derive
some advantage from the revival of the inter

This, together with the promise of an unusual
expansion of business In the autumn, it is be
lieved, will soon reduce the surplus to the re
serve point. There are no apprehensions of a
stringency, however. Th6 Clearing House re

Recover Some of Their Losses
New Yore, July 23. The stock markot to
day during the first and last hours displayed
more animation with a more decided tone than
it has done for weeks, and under the influence
of more favorable news and good buying for
both sides of the account material advances
were scored in all portions of the list. The tor
eigners were again buyers In this market, and
the amount ot their purchases is stated at 40,
000 shares, while the covering of shorts was on
a liberal scale.
The bears for the time being were doing little
and the absence of the usual offerings of stock
set some ot the smaller traders and bears to
covering their shorts, which had the effect of
opening the market up from to ? per cent,
while in the early dealings considerable of a
spurt was made, almost everything moving up
fractionally further. Atchison was the only
marked exception, and it retired per cent.
The movement was explained by the fact that
some of the shorts wished to get back their
lines ot the stock at lower figures and rumors
that the company would be compelled to pay
about $30,000 for damages in Chicago helped
along the effort to get it down. Tho stocks of
the Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and St.
Louis early became the strong feature, and the
common e-pecially moved up over 2 per cent.
In the general list, however. Missouri Pacific,
Union Pacific, Northern Pacific preferred, and
me unesapease ana umo stocks were auirc
markably strong and the latter later in the day
became a feature. The report was that Drexel,
Morgan t Co. bad bought from Mr. Hunting
ton 100,000 shares of the stock, and the in
ference was that It was for the Vanderbilts
who would then have control of another
through line from the Atlantic seaboard to the
west. After the first demand was satisfied the
market became Intensely dull and prices, as
usual, sagged off slowly and many stocks re
tired to the neighborhood of the morning
The buying began again toward delivery
hour and a sharp upward movement was made,
which again reached all portions of the list and
Burlington crossed par and special movements
were made in many stocks The most marked
were in Sngar Trust and Hocking Vallev. the
latter being due to the circulation of a report
that a committee was to be formed to keep the
road out of tho receivers' hands
The market finally closed with aalrly active
business and strong and the best prices of the
day. 'lhe entire list is higher. Cleveland,
