Liberty Live Stock Heavy linn of
Cattle, tut Fow Primes.
Light Eun of Sheepand Lambs The Lieut
est of the Season.
Offick of Pittsburg Dispatch, 1
WEDNESDAY. July 21 1SS9. f
l&e total run of local cattle lor the week
has been in round numbers 110 carloads,
-Against 90 loads last week. The bulk of
those received irere common to fair grades.
There were about 10 loads ot good heavy
-c.ittlc in the supplies, but none that conld
be called in ihe largest charity strictly
prime. Very few were above 1,400 lbs. in
Orders for export cattle were plenty, but
there were practically none of this grade on
the market. Bayers were in larger force than
at any time since last fall. While they meant
business, they would not consent to an at
tempted advance. Trade was active, and stock
found ready customers at last week's prices,
except for smooth, light butcher stock, which
were 10 to 15c higher than a w eek ago.
The utside price for the best 1,300 to 1,400
pound steers on the market was J4 15. A prime
iuality of well-fatted stock would have brought
it 25 to J4 40, as there were buvers plentv ready
to iuvest in this grade, but none were to be bad.
A leading stockman comnlains that country
shippers, as a rule, fail to properly classify their
cattle, and place a higher estimate on the grade
of those sent to market than stubborn facts
v arrant.
Said he: "I had amongmy consignments this
-week two loads of cattle from different parties
-weighing almost the same, and to a green drov
er's eje there was very little difference in qual
ity. But the difference amounted to 25 to 40c per
cwt in selling. f)ne load was grass fed, full
and slick, and, to the superficial observer, was
all right. The other had the quality and the
grain which gave solid substance, and the differ
once was as great as that between a green and a
ripe peach. The cocntrvrnan who owned the
grass-fed, low-grade cattle couldn't see why he
bbould not get as much for his stock as was
paid tor the higher grade, grain-fed cattle. But
expert dealers can see the difference at once."
Miern and Lambs.
Receipts on Monday were little more than
Salf those of the previous Monday. Light sup
plies served to stimulate markets, and stock
was well cleaned up at an advance of 1525c on
last week's prices for choice grades. At Herr's
Island receipts wore unusually heavy, and a
decline was reported there.
Nen 8 from Eastern markets had a discour
aging influence. Liberty stockmen are of the
opinion that sheep have touched their lowest
figure for this sc-isou. Tho advanced price of
wool aud good pasturage, it is believed, will
stiffen the backbone of farmers so that they
will withhold stock from market until better
prices can De realized. One thing is certain,
the run at the Liberty jards this week was the
iiiesb uijs season.
Supply was light, as it alwavs is in midsum
mer. Markets were active and firm in the fore
part of tho week, especially ;f or lightweights.
To-day trade is slow, and heavy hogs are little
pood. Prices vary very little from last week
Ihe tr.p price at Chicago to-dav was S4 65. The
ontide figure at Liberty is J4 '75, and this for
choicest light Yorkers.

The Flonr Trade.
MlXNEAroMs, July 24. This week theag
gregato output of flour was 119,270 barrels, av
erapng 19,678 barrels daily, against 1R940 bar
rels the week before, and 167.200 barrels for the
corresponding period in 1SS8. A year ago
prices were about a dollar cheaper. The most
encouraging feature just now is an active for
eign demand. Tne millers are buying no more
wheat than they actually need, hoping for
lover prices when the new crop moves.

A SInmp nnd n. Rally In Wheat Bear
Early In the Day Turn Balls Before
tho Close Corn Excited nnd
Lower Pork Featareless.
Chicago There was modest degree of
activity in wheat to-day, and during the
greater part of the session local sentiment was
rather bearish. The crowd seemed to be work
ing on the "natural reaction" theory, and were
disposed to sell during the morning hours. The
opening was quite strong on all futures and H
c higher, the early strength being mainly
on reports of continued heavy rains in the
Southwest, where harvesting and .shipping
operations are in progress. More bullish dis
patches were received by houses having foreign
connections on the Russian and Hungarian
crop situation.
Reports to Crop Statistician Prico from 238
points in Iowa, Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota
and Wisconsin give percentages of 86 in the
two latter States, 89 in Nebraska and 91 in
Iowa, with Dakota at 62. The disposition on
the part of the crowd to sell had a depressing
effect toward noon, but during the last hour
the demand improved. Parties who had sold
early turned buyers, and the undertone became
quite bullish. The December future shows an
advance, 'based on yesterday's closing, of Kc
July is lc higher, and September unchanged.
A fair trade was reported in corn early in the
day, after which the pit became excited. The
feeling, on the whole, was weaker and lower
prices were established. The easier tone was
attributed mainly to a less urgent cash de
mand, the Inquiry for July having apparently
been t-atlsfietC which had a weakening influence
on the other lutures. Offerings were more lib
eral and demand less urgent. The local crowd
were long, and receivers ere said to be rather
free sellers, supposed to be against corn pur
chased in the country. The market opened at
about yesterday's closing prices, was steady for
a time, but soon becamo easier, declining c
ruled quiet, and closing at v lower than
Oats were steadier early, but there were few
buying orders in the market, and during the
latter part ot the day a weakness prevailed and
prices declined KUc.
The market for mess pork attracted little at
tention. The filling of a tevr orders caused an
advance of 57c at the opening, but a weaker
feeling was soon developed and prices receded
1517c. A slight advance was made toward
the close, and the market closed quiet.
Trading was very light in the lard market
and the feeling was easy daring the greater
portion ot the day. Prices declined 67Hc
and the market closed quiet.
A fairly active business was reported in the
market for short rib sides. Early the demand
was active and the feeling was stronger, ac
companied with an advance of 2K5c- At this
Improvement, however, there Was considerable
pressure to sell, and prices gradually receded
K10c. Toward the close the feeling was
steadier and prices rallied slightly and closed
comparatively steady.

Reported to be. About Ready to
Break Oat on Diamond Street
Salaries Equivalent to Capital, and Less
Tronblesome to Manage.
It was ascertained yesterday irom a source
entitled to the fullest credit that a number
of new and handsome business houses will
soon be commenced on the north side of
Diamond street, between Wood and Market
sqnare all on the new 50-foot line. Among
them may be mentioned one on the "Willey
lot, one on the Ihoma lot, and one on the
lot owned by the Exchange National Bank.
All of these buildings will be first-class
in every respect, and carefully adapted to the
requirements of modern business methods.
It has passed into a proverb that the sons of
rich men arc prodigal in the use of money. It
comes easy and it goes easy. This may be true
as a general proposition, but it appears that the
rich young men of PlttsDurg are an exception
to the rule In a conversation between several
business men yesterday the fact was brought
ont that quite a number of them who have re
cently come into possession of their fortunes
are Investing largely in lands and houses, or
identifying themselves with established busi
ness enterprises. Some of the finest properties
in the city are owned by them, as are also many
of the best buildings that are in course of con
struction. These lucky and sensible youngsters area
credit, not only to their sturdy ancestors, but
to tho city, and their commendable conduct
blunts the edge of Mr. Carnegie's allegation
that it is a misfortune to be the son of a million
aire. What is he worth T This is a question often
propounded, and one that affords a' broad field
for speculation in almost any particular case.
What is a man worth T For example, a book
keeper receiving a salary of (2,000 a year. It
requires S50,000 at 4 per cent to yield this
amount. Ten thousand dollars per annnmis
not an unusual salary in some branches of
business for managers of institutions or large
industries, and that is equivalent to a capital
of from 200,000 to 250,000 drawing 5er cent in
one case and 4 per ceut in the other. Let the
man who receives only S1.000 a year pause to
consider, before moaning over his hard lot,
that he commands an income on $20,000. or per
chance 25,000. If he persists in considering
bis situation In life an unfortunate one, let him
imagine a reversed condition of circumstances.
Let him asked if he would choose to be
placed in the condition of some acquaintance
whom he may know, and who, having $25,000 at
command, is deficient in ability to secure or fill
a lucrative position and one commanding honor
and respect. Is is not probable that the annoy
ances likely to be caused over a safe and pru
dent investment for the capital, with the
chances of loss staring the investor in the face,
would fully equal such as are ordinarily en
countered by those in responsible positions
liability to dismissal or loss of place through
sickness or other causes?
The most important real estate transaction
that has taken place in Wilklnsborg this year
was closed up yesterday. The Clones residence
of 13 rooms and large lot, on Rebecca street,
passed into the possession of Joseph A. Lang
fit t, a prominent Pittsburg attorney, the con.
sideration being $10,000. Mr. Langfltt will move
into his new home in a short time.
, Members of the Petrolenm Exchange who
have stood manfully by the new rules through
good and evil report begin to think that their
success is assured, and for proof point to the
improved condition of the trade. With the
tide in their favor they can well afford to boast,
but they should consider that the market is
controlled by a power superior to themselves,
which may at any time throw a wet blanket
over it. Conditions go for nothing when they
antagonize the interests of a corporation like
the Standard..
"There is more in heaven and earth, Horatio,
than is dreamt of in your philosophy," has
special significance when identified with the
oil market.
A great deal Is being done in the way of im
proving and beautifying the suburbs. Up and
down and across the rivers, carpenters, masons,
painters, roadmakers and landscape artists, a
small army of them, are busy as bees, and un
der their skillful manipulations the country
roundabout is undergoing a transformation
which will largely Increase its attractions and
enhance its value for residence purpotc
In this material age it is gratifying to observe
a disposition to surround the home with all the
comforts and conveniences that money can
procure. In this respect Pittsburg is second to
no other city in the Union.
It it gratifying to be assnred by competent
authority that the inquiry for real estato Is
largely for houses or lots on which to build,
and only to a limited extent for specnlation.
Under this condition f the market a material
shrinkage in values is impossible.
Local Stocks Rapidly Picking Themselves
Oat of the Rat.
La Norla and Philadelphia Gas were again
the centers of attraction at the Stock Exchange
yesterday. The bulls, as on Tuesday, had the

Bankers Satisfied With the Situation A
Rash In the Fall'.
At the banks yesterday the familiar story
was repeated money in good supply, rates un
changed, borrowing uncomfortably light de
positing fair and checking a little off. Cur
rency was scarce almost to the famine point,
poipt. The clearings were S2.10S.598 44 and the
balances S348,2SS 97. Everybody was satisfied
with the situation, taking the season into ac
count, and more than hopeful of a Dig rush in
the fall.

The Bulls Capture the Oil market and Toss
Prices Skyward.
As soon as the oil market opened yesterday
the bulls took hold and ruled the roost until
near the close, when the bears made a raid and
hammered the price down . A big advance in
refined in New York and Antwerp was the d'
rect cause of the boom, during which 1 02
was scored the highest price for oil on the
local Exchange since 1885.
The market strong at 99c Good buying by
McKelvy and others quickly sent the price up
to SL It then fell off a cent, but soon made an
other spnrt and got back near the dollar line.
This was about the dinner hour. While many
of the brokers were out for luncheon a little
snap game was played, which resulted in an ad
vance from 09c to 1 01K in less time than it
takes to tell it.
The market hnng around the last-named
figure until shortly after 2 o'clock, when, on
good buying, the price shot up to 1 02 but at
that figure the longs were so anxious to realize
that It soon wavered, and, after a few small
fluctuations, broke away and closed at 1 01,
with considerable difference of opinion as to
what to-day would bring forth. Some contend
ed tho conditions favored still higher prices,
while others thought the top had been reached.
Said a broker: "The new rnles are working
well. The market is better than at any other
time for over a year, aud the end Is not yet. I
predict still higher prices." Notnlng was done
in cash oil, the Augnst option being all that
was dealt in. Fluctuations and other features
of the market are given btlow.

They Attack the Conl Stocks, bat Make No
Particular Impression Chansea Small,
but In Ihe Direction of Lower
Prices' Donda Featureless.
Nrw York, July 21 The stock market
showed no signs of getting out of the rut of
dullness into which it has fallen, and the trans
actions to-day were on the same limited scale
as usual of late, whilo the tone of tho market,
which was strong at first, became weak later in
the day and the early gains were lost. The
market followed the lead of London at
the opening, and first prices were generally
f rom yi to per cent higher than last evening's
figures, but the strength soon gave out and for
the rest of the forenoon there was a dull and
unsatisfactory market without feature or ani
mation. The most prominent characteristic of
the market was the buying of London houses
and their purchases are estimated as high as
5,000 snares, but the enthusiasm of the local
operators soon abated and after the first de
mand had beensatlsfieddullnessandstagnation
was the order of the day, Chesapeake and
Ohio first preferred was the only really strong
stock, and after a rise of abont 2 per cent It lost
most of the improvement. The Cleveland,
Columbus. Cincinnati and St. L"nls stocks were
also active, bnt their movements were confined
to a narrower range thau during the past few
In the afternoon the bears made a demonstra
tion against the Coal stocks and Reading in
Particular, the rnmnr being that the earnings
or June, on account of the lato floods, would
show a decrease of from 250.000 toJlOaOCKX
The impression got abroad in the room that
long stock was coming' ont, which started the
:raders to selling, and the stock was knocked
down 1M per cent, to 42Jf. The other Coalers,
especially Lackawanna, sympathized, and tbo
selling extended to other portions of the list,
the Grangers coming in fdr a liberal share of
attention, though St. Paul was well held at the
close to the best prices of the week. There
was an effort to recoup tho sales of the previ
ous hour toward the close, and a sharp rally oc
curred, Reading reacting $ and others in pro
portion. Tho market closed dull, but firm, at
fractional losses for the day. The final changes
are somewhat irregular, but generally are in
the direction of lower figures, and for fraction
al amounts only.
Railroad bonds continue to show a small
volume of business, with no feature to the
dealings. The sales of all Issues to-day reached
only 854,000. of which 109,000 were In the
Rocking Valley fives. The temper of the mar
ket was somewhat stronger than of late, but
there was no decided tendency ot prices In
either direction, and the final changes are
Irregular and generally forsmall fractions only.
Hocking Valley fives rose 2, to C6: Indianap
olis, Decatur and Western seconds, 2, to 40, and
Green Bay Incomes. 2, to 17f. The strength
of the last named bonds was due to the new
plan of building a Southwest extension, and by
so doing to get business enough to save tho
road from bankruptcy.

Coffee options advanced 35 points in Eastern

now among jobbers points to higher coffee, and
it is certain that we are to have a short crop
this season. Sugar is fairly steady, and no
more, at recent decline.

Hemlock lnmber is firm at quotations. Dry
hemlock is scarce and bard to get. Demand for
lnmber holds up well for the season. Orders
from Johnstown andWilmerdlngcome in freely.
At the latter place bids are out for SO new
houses. The local trade is slack, as it always
is at this time ot the year. All signs, however,
point to an activo fall In building lines. Pros
pects are good for a fail boom in lumber, and
whilo margins are close there is little doubt
that an unprecedented amount of stuff will be
bandied by onr dealers this season.

It Might Havs Been Worse.
Not long since, Mr. Charles M. Elchentanb,
an Allegheny centleman, who lives at 189 Fed
eral street, was mado to fully realize the fact
that the aches and pains he experienced in
different parts of his body were not without a
cause. The blgb-colored urine, pain across the
small of bis back and kidneys, together with
other unmistakable signs, warned him that his
condition was fast approaching Bright's dis
ease. The sharp, burning pain in bis feet gave
him untold misery. In fact, his disease grew
from bad to worse, until he was unable to walk
or step on his feet without experiencing great
pain. He also frequently felt pain nnder his
shoulder blades and different parts of bis
body. He lost his appetite, and he
felt a fnll, bloated feeling after
meals. As the little food he ate fermented in
his stomach be had much eructation of gas.
After taking six weeks', treatment at
TUTE, at 420 Penn avenne, his aches
and pains all left him. bis appetite
came back to him. his stomach performs its
function properly, and he f eols well and hearty
and is able to attend to his business every
day. He further states: "It gives me pleasure
'to state to my many friends, and the people
generally, thatalthongh my disease was chronic
and of long standing, Ibave been entirely cured
of my kidney disease and rheumatism by the
physicians and specialists for these diseases at
No. 420 Penn avenne.
