LIGHT BUTCHER CATTLE ACTIVE,
Sheep and Lambs Higher in Spite of Lib
FLOUR FK01I MILLERS' STANDPOINT
Office of Pn-rsBtmo Dipatch, 1
Monday. JalyS. 18S9. J
There was a good run of stocks and prices
were fairly maintained, with a slight im
provement on good, smooth butchering
cattle of light weight. Of strictly prime
heavy cattle there were none on the market.
Sheep and lambs held up well in spite of a
heavy run. Hoes were the weakest article
on the market, showing that consumers take
little to fresh pork in this hot weather.
The rat) was larger than last week, and qual
ity showed some Improvement. The bulk of
those received were light butcher stock, weigh
ins from L2U0 to 1,300. This Is the grade most
in demand, and shippers have evidently caught
on to this fact. There were a few l.GCO-ponnd
cattle on the market, but none strictly prime.
For the latter there are no longer customer in
this market. The ranee of prices for lieavy
Western beeves, weighing 1,500 to 1.G00 pound,
was S4t5S4 70; medium w eighth, 1.200 to 1.400
pounds, which were in coed demand, $4 404 60:
prime lightweights, H00 to 1.100 pounds, $d 75
8 90; common to fair thin ana rough steers,
S3 0003 6a Fresh cows were slow at a range
of S2ug40. Sales reported were at S20, E3 and
St Calves ivere in light supply, but ufliciert
for demand at 4sfl3 per pound. Dulls, stags,
heifers and dry cows were in light supply,
and no sales were reported. Reecints trom

cattle. Prices were higher all along the line at
Chicago this week, but at Herr's I-land there
was little chance, except for light, smooth
butcher stock. This grade sold more readily at
better prices than a week ago. A few cattle
were unsold at noon to-day and one drover, who
had nine head left, said he would be glad to
sell at SI 6a while tho price at Chicago was
Sheep and Lamb.
Supply was lieavy, but demand was good in
pite of heavy run. Prices were a shade higher
than last week, and though the run was very
heavy more could been sold. Best heavy w est-

A Lawrence county drover said: "We nave
had a very good sheep market this week, though
supplies have been unusually lieavy. In the
riot months people are more inclined to mutton
than pork and the effect is seen in tho heavy
demand (or sheen and lambs."
A Diamond market butcher said: "The sup
ply of sheep and lambs for a few weeks back
has been soarcely up to demand, and this wenk
there is a rush of stock to market. Hut mar
kets were able to take all that came. As a rule
such a rush as we have had this week should
weaken prices. But sheep held up well and
desirable grades brought better prices than
last week. At East Liberty sheep were strong,
but lambs weak, owing to liberal receipts.
Supplies were very light and demand corre
sponded. The time is here when butchers
want little pork. Sales were reported at $4 75
to $4 90. The outside price at Chicago to-day
was Si to. Receipts from Ohio, Sanford

Wheat oiid Flour,
if. B. Sheffield, of Fairbault, Minn., who rep
resents large flouring Interests there. Is in the
city looking artcr the interests of his trade.
To the commercial editor of The Dispatch
he said to-day: '"Through the Red river valley
the quantity of wheat this season is up to last
year, and quality far above that of last year.
An unusually 1 rge percentage or this season's
wheat. will grade as No. 1 hard. Last year
tncro was a very small percentage of this
grade. Of last year's crop not more than one
third was what could be called lu the largest
charity good milling wheat. This year's erop
will pan out fully two-thirds of good milling
wheat. The crop iu Minnesota will not be more
than 70 per cent of the average this season, bnt
quality was never better. The stock of old
wheat of good grade is unusually small.
Though export demand lias fallen below gen
eral expectation, there is very little first-class
milling wheat in the graneries of the North
west at this time."

CniCACO There was a.snft and gC lower
opening to'the wheat market to-day, and inside
of an hour prices sagged Hc more. Local In
fluences and pretty much all of the news
favored tho bears. Early cables were weak,
and the weather in England was reported fine.
Rather freo offerings of December, supposed
to be for foreign account (one operator sold
100,000 bushels), helped to depress the market,
and the weaker feeling was intensified by the
bearish cables. The Chicago report on the visible
supply was 60,003 bushels decrease.and although
a great deal more than that was figured on at
the close of last week by the trade generally,
the posting did not perceptibly influence
values, as the effect had already been dis
counted. The movement of wheat out of first
hands Is rapidly increasing.
Outside domestic markets were all slightly
lower in sympathy with the weakness here.
News from the Northwest was generally favor
able, and the feeling seems to be growing
among traders that the crop as a whole is "all
right." Weather in the Southwest was again
midst. Thirteen boat loads were taken at Balti
more for Antwerp direct. New York reported
seven loads, and 100,000 bushels or over were
"worked" nere. Tue volume of speculative
buslne-s transacted was under the average,
and at times trading dragged, the close being
tame at a net decline for the day In the active
futures of JJc. July closed c off.
But very little interest was manifested in
corn, there being no conspicuous trading one
way or the other, transactions being confined
mainly to local operators. Tho feeling on tho
whole was a trifle easier, though prices showed
b t little change compared with Saturday, and
were limited loy,&Mi range.
Oats were steadier, due to the wet weather,
but the volume of business was light and
mainly of a local character.
Quite an active trade was reported in the
market for mess pork and the feeling was un
settled and w eat. Opening sales were made at
57c decline, but the filling of a few orders
caused a rallv again. Later, however, prices
declined 1520c Near the close prices rallied
7KI0e, auu the market closed quiet.
A dull and unsettled feeling prevailed in tho
lard nnrket. On the whole range, prices re
ceded 5g'Kc and the marcet closed quiet at
Considerable interest was manifested in the
market for short rib sides, but the feeling was
easy during the create r portion of the day.
Prices declined 67c and the market closed
quiet at inside figures.

The crop Is well matured, and new deliveries in
fair milling character are expected early in
September. Last year there were few deliv

EUEAL METHODISTS SELLING OUT
There was a good inquiry for realty yes
terday, mainly for buildinz lots, and a num
ber of deals were closed up. The most im
portant transaction was the sale of a resi
dence in Oakland for 520.000. There was a
report that 590,000 had been ofiered lor the
Singer property at Wilkinsbnrg. It is held at
Local securities developed a broadening ten
dency yesterday, and were active for "blue
Monday," nnder the Influence of a number ot
god buying orders. The advance In Philadel
phia Oas was attributed in large part to re
ports of a deal which will reduce the expenses
of the company and probably result in larger
dividends. Chartlers Gas was out of the mar-,
ket at 50l A private offer for a large block at
51 was refused. Its friends affect to see good
' returns in the close future. The improvement.
which touches almost everything on the list, is
probably nothing but a natural reaction from
the extreme dullness of the past month or two.
Whether It has come to stay remains to be
seen, but there are good reasons for saying that
"Inquirer" Is laboring nndor a mistake. The
old postofflce building and grounds belong to
Uncle Sam and cannot be sold without Con
gressional authorization. All rumors of
private negotiations for the property are un
founded. The sale. If at all, will be publie
and to the highest and best bidder.
A lot 40 by 150 feet, on Wood street, Wilkins
burg, was sold to R. C. Snodgrass last week,
for S107 50 per foot of frontage. Eight years
ago it would have been considered dear st 30.

Fourteen were for 1.000 and up to S3.000.
Several others were placed but not settled.

most of the tips that come from Wall street
are given out by broken down speculators. Yet
such is the gullibility of a portion of mankind

STOCKS BETTER ALL BOUND.
The Gusser Lead tho Market in Activity
The stock market yesterday was bullish and
active for all the favorites, even the tractions
participating of the improvement. The gassers
were tne particularly strong spots, all of them
"being higher. Philadelphia leading in the up
ward movement. It opened with a small sale
at 37 and closed firm at 3S with large trans
actions. Thero was talk of some kind of a deal
in it, but of what nature could not be ascer
tained." But be this true or false, there were
other good reasons tor the advance. It was
fractionally higher in New York than here,
which alone was snSftcient to strengthen the
home markets Another good reason existed
in the fact that stock was scarce, with a num
ber of good buying orders. Still, another rea
son was given by a well-posted broker. He
said: "The stock has been dull and depressed
for a long time, and. In mv opinion, the spurt Is
but a natural reaction. There may be a deal
going on, but if so, I don't know what it is."
There was a good inquiry for Cbartiers Gas,
both on 'Change and on the street It could
have been sold in large blocks at 5L
La Norla sold at VZ, and was freely offered at
2. Several thousand shares could have been
sold at 1. People's Natural Gas and Pipeage
brought 17, an advance. Manufacturers' Gas
was neglected, but an offer or 25 would prob
ably hate been accepted. Plate Glass was
opened at 190, without success. Switch and
Signal was a weak spot,closingwitb20i asked.
This is remarkably low for a stock that is
known to rest on a substantial basis and to
have large possibilities. There was cnnsiriAr.
able Interest manifested in Electric, but the
difference between bids and offers was too
great to be bridged over. It closed with 65
asked and 51 bid. The market finished with
the bullish feeling uppermost. Total sales
were 450 shares. Bids, offers and sales follow:

The Financial Situation Grows Better as

latter was a feature, as indicated by tbe Clear

S2.412.b61 35,-and the balances 8424,837 46. Both
exchange and currency were in sufficient sup

Tbe trail Street Daily News remarks: "Con
siderable comment has been aroused in certain
directions becanse of tbe apparent tardiness
of tbe Secretary of tbe Treasury in adding to
the sinking fund by purchases of United State
bonds. The law On the1 subject 'makes it in
cumbent on him to add to the sinking fmltt
within each fiscal year an amount equal to 1
Jier cent of the outstanding public debt and
nteret on bouds previously made a part of the
sinking fund. The sinking fund requirements
which last year were in excess of S47,COU,000 are
somewnat larger for the current year, and Sec
retary WIndoni will therefore be required to
buy an average amount of nearly $1,000,000
bonds each week throughout the entire year.
This is much In excess of that wblcb be has
recently been buying in order to comply with
It has been customary to complete this fund
long before the close of the fiscal year, and in
deed the Secretary Is allowed to bny the
requisite amount within SO days. It be can get
them. The seeming dilatorlness in these pur
chases thus far. however, is accepted by those
best posted in regard to the Secretary's views
and intentions as certain that he sees bis way
clear for adequate action for the relief of the
money market, and his determination to do
whatever is necessary In tho matter.
The Knowledge of the condition or the situa
tion offers assurance that with proper caution
on the par of the banks, and In the absence of
reckless speculation, the provisions for meet
ing the currency demand tor the fall require
ments is thoroughly sufficient, however large
they may prove to be.

Of Some Kind Expected In the Local Oil
There were no new features in the oil market
yesterday, and dealings were rather sluggish.
Twice during the day it dropped below the
dollar line, but the bulls rallied every time and
gave it a hoist, restoring the equilibrium.
There was a spiritless opening at 93c, where
the market hung for an hour or so and then,
under the influence of a small raid by the
bears, dropped to 99c Later on. about noon,
stimulated by buying in New York and Oil
City, there was an advance to SI 00-. During
the afternoon the market softened gradually
for lack of business, and closed at SI 00c
The fact of tt-e market having closed at
about the same figure tor three days in suc
cession is taken to indicate a change of tome
Kino. 10-aay, nut wnetner lor Detter or worse is
what the "boys" would like to find out before
tho gong sounds.
The fluctuations were: Opening, 99c;
highest, 81 00; lowest, 99c; closing, $1 00-.
Saturday's clearings were 426.000 barrels.
Those for yesterday were less. The demand
for puts and calls was light.
The Kerr-McCocihle well. Washington
county, which came in Saturday, is doing 350
barrels per day. The Baldwin which was doing
9 barrels per hour on Saturday, was yesterday
doing 20 barrels per hour. The Judge Mc

A WET BLANKET
Thrown Over Wall Street A Dull, Dreary
and Monotonous Day In Stocks Final
Changes Insignificant, bnt Near
ly Everything-Leu Go.
New York, Jnly 29. The dullness of the
stock market was Its principal feature to-day,
and outside or less than half a dozen stocks'
the movements were confined to the smallest
fractions, and the business done was entirely
insignificant. The indisposition to operate was
very marked on both sides of the account, and
as traders are waiting for some decided move
ment by the acknowledged leaders of specula
tion there was almost nothing done in the gen
eral list Tho Chesapeake and Ohio stocks and
the Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and St.
Louis stocks were the strong features, and
Reading the weak one, though toward tbe close
Chicago Gas developed marked weakness.
The opening prices were generally slightly
nignertnan Saturday's closing prices, bat tho
market was tame and no character was shown
by tbe dealings, and no tendency in either
direction conld be perceived. The Chesapeake
and Ohio stocks became immediately conspic
uous in the dullness lor activitv and strength,
but the attack upon Reading was Boon begun,
and that stock began to sag on a comparatively
large business. In tbe Chesapeake and Ohiis
the highest prices were generally reached be
fore noon, after which they were maintained at
the level or the best figures. The pressure
upon Heading was maintained, and ltconllnued
to yield slowly until toward delivery hour,
when there was a slight rally.
The rest of tho list was intensely dull
throughout, and no feature of any kind re
lieved the monotony, the market finally closing
dnll, but steady to firm, at about opening
figures. The final changes are insignificant,
except that Chesapeake and Ohio firsts rose 2
and the second preferred 1, while Chicago
Gas lost 1. Reading's loss being only J.
Tbe transactions in railroad bonds were on
tbe same limited scale, tbe sales of 'all. issues-
reaching oniy w,,wu, witn no special feature
of any kind. Indianapolis, Decatur and West
ern seconds lost 7 at 32. Tho advances In
cluded East Tennessee firsts, 2 to 123.

Country Produce Jobblns Prices.
For Monday trade was fair. Cheese is a shade
lower than last week, but is in good 'demand
and moving out freely. Country brftter drags
and is hard to sell at any price. Creamery is
steady. Vegetables ot all kinds are in full sup
ply, and the present outlook Is for a week of
abundance and a downward drift. Water
melons are firm. The few Derries that showed
up to-day found ready sale. Tbe outlook for
fall is bright for vegetables and dark for fruit.
The crop of fruit will bo below average, but
vegetables will break the record in volume. It
is not often that potatoes are as low at this time
of the year as now. The very bct are slow at
51 50 per barrel.
