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. Cnltle. 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.

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 5125. 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.

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. Hoe. 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 .Langdon, S3 bead, from Pennsylvania, J. Jlelber, 11; William Gavin. 8.

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." LITE STOCK MARKETS.

Bull on Wheat nt t'blcnco Strike n Snag ' Local nnd General Influences All Favor the Benr Side Hog Pro duct Unsettled nnd WrnU. 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 medium figures. 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 Hark Lane JJiprwr, in its weekly review or the British grain trade, says: The tendency of English wheat is in favor of sellers, though business Is inactive The crop Is well matured, and new deliveries in fair milling character are expected early in September. Last year there were few deliv eries before Michaelmas. The sales of English wheat lo' thf past week were 45,740 quartern at 10s per quarter, arainst 23,209 quarters at 32s 6d for the coiresioiiding week lat rar. Foreign wheat is firm, with an advanee at Liverpool of 6d and at London of kl. Russian, California and American red winter are most in request. Barley oats and corn are firm, and ronndcorn is 6d dearer. At to-day's market English and foreign wheats were inactive, but prices were maintained. Flour was 6d higher. Oats were siow. uye was a smiling dearer. Linseed ad- vanceuoa. IN THE BUSY WOULD. A Biff Deal in Suburban Eeally and Other Good Ones on the Strinjj. REVIVAL IN LOCAL SECURITIES. The Fidelity Title and' Trust Company Oc cupies Its Xew Building;. 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 sioaooo. , 9 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 it has, "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. One of the most progressive towns in the South is Florence, Ala. A year ago the popu lation was 2.000. It Is now more than 8,000. The aggregate capital employed in the various en terprises there ts S15,000,000. Many Northern ers, among them several Pittsburgers, have mad large investments in Florence. The fol lowing are some of the Industrie's projected or completed: A furnace about ready to go into blast, and another partly constrncted: a stove factory: a hardware company, with a capital of $300,000. to manufacture flnebulldinghardware, etc; a wagon factory, with capital of 5150,000; an agricultural implement works; a handle factory: a woodenware factory; a sash, door and blind factory: a cedar bncket factory; a pnmp factory; planing mills; a factory to make wooden bntter plates such as grocers use; a flour mill; a cotton mill; a jeans factory; a gingham factory: a woolen mill; a cotton gin; a marble company; a roofing and paint company: a shoe factory: a compress, packet and ferry company; three bnildlng aud loan companies; a canning factory; several brick factories, and a dummy railroad. The Fidelity Title and Trust Company de serted their old stand yesterday and occupied their splendid new building on Fourth avenne. Everything was as bright as a new dollar, and everybody connected with the Institution, from the porter up to President, wore a cheery smile indicative of pleasure with the change The mammoth vault contains about 1,000 boxes, with room for several thousand more. They rent at from 5 to (60 per year. Tho largest is reserved for the use of the company. That part of the ground owned by the Metho dist Episcopal Church congregation at Wilkins bnrg. upon which the old brick scboolhonse stands, has been sold to Prof. A. M. Van Tine, a prominent and well-known educator, lie will remodel thebuilding and adapt it to the purposes of an academy, where young men and women will be fitted for college. The consid eration was l,5oa Twenty-flve mortgages were entered for record yesterday. The largest, S375.000 was given by the Fidelity Title and Trust Company. Fourteen were for 1.000 and up to S3.000. Several others were placed but not settled. This form of inVestment is growing in popu larity. A Pittsburg broker remarked yesterday that 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 that many of these worthless pointers bring high prices. Queer, isn't ItT STOCKS BETTER ALL BOUND. The Gusser Lead tho Market in Activity nnd Strenetb. 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: MOBNINC. Hid. Asked. M AFTEnwoox: Hid. Asked. '0 COX .. . Chartlers VaL Gas Co.

There was a good, healthy movement at the banks yesterday, considerable paper being dis counted at the usual rates, and depositing and checking running above the average. The latter was a feature, as indicated by tbe Clear ing House report, the exchanges footing np S2.412.b61 35,-and the balances 8424,837 46. Both exchange and currency were in sufficient sup ply, and trading about even. The financial situation is slowly but surely Improving, and in a few weeks It is expected there will be em ployment for most of the Idle funds. iloney at New York yesterday was easy at22 per cent, last loan at 2, closing of fered at 2. Prime mercantile paper, 4KQ 6i Sterling exchange dnll and steady at 84 8.5 for 60-day .bills and 84 8 for demand. 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 the law. 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.

A CHANGE Of Some Kind Expected In the Local Oil RinK To-Day. 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 Kennan well will be a small producer. Features of tbe Market. Corrected daily by John M. OaKiey & Co., 45 Sixth street, members of the Pittsburg Petro leum Exchange.

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.

Diss Do Bar. of New York, the notorious medium, has temporarily retired to a convent. Governor Beaver has issued a requisition for William Hontz, who is wanted at Lewiston, Mifflin county, for forgery, and who is now under arrest at Dubuque, la. Dr. Tanner, member of Parliament for Cork, was sentenced yesterday at Tipperary to One month's imprisonment for assanlting Police Inspector Stephens in May last. When judgment was pronounced he cried out in the docket: "I defy yon. The magistracy are the real criminals." For this outbreak three months were added to his sentence. A tremendous storm of wind, hall and rain swept over Findlay, O., blowing down fences, trees, outhou-cs and unfinished buildintrs. and doing a great deal of damage of a gero-il char acter. Tho wind was terrific and the ninfall tremendous, while hail as large as hlclory n its fell. It was tho most destructive st .im of the year, and the los to property is great. President Harrison will leave Deer Park for Bar Harbor August 6 and leave on his re turn August 15. Secretary Proctor was ex pected at the War Department to-dav, bnt Acting Secretary Tweedal to-day received a telegram from him saying ho would not ha able to get here. The Secretary's young son, who has been an invalid for several weeks, is wore again. Reports from Norfolk, respecting tho con struction of tbe Texas at tho navy yard there, have occasioned some disturbance In the equanimity of officials abont the Navy Depart ment, but in the absence of Secretarv Trry nothing definite can bo learned. Tie reports state that instructions have been received at the yard to investigate the condition of tbe Texas and the progress of the work, with, tho result mat a court or inonirv win tin ordered and probably a court martial for several of the officers connected with the yard. Forest fires are reported In the mountains and along the banks of tbe Missouri for many miles below Ft. Benton. At Bnwdnin the sec tion house was burned, and Miss Mattie John son, a school teacher, so severely burned that her recovery Is doubtful. The Northern Pacific track east of Livingston burned out for a short distance, but has been repaired. Several min ing camps have been deserted, and ranchers are plowing around their land to prevent fire in the grass from innnlng. The air Is filled with a dense smoke, bnt so far no loss of life Is re ported. Telegraph lines are somewhat demor alized from tbe burning of poles. The storm of Saturday night at Chicago was even more severe than had been supposed, great as was the uproar of the elements and visible the effects. The unprecedented rain fall, the hifth wind and the lncesant lightning caused a loss of property that is difficult to es timate. All kinds of property suffered goods in cellars and basements, streets, shade trees, sidewalks, lawns, shrubbery, driveways, unfin ished houses and dwellings. There were 44 alarms of fire; many from lightning and more from the destruction of the Insulation of tbe electric-light wires. ' Fire, water and wind combined caused a I053 probably ih excess of 1,000.000 and possibly as much again. The cases of the Cincinnati saloon lrepnern who were arrested for violating the Owen Sun day law were called In the Police Court and bonds wero given for apnearance for trial. Most of them were not set for any special date. In the case of Warfllnger and one or two others who have been specially defiant in their con duct, early trial will be given. Tbe saloon keepers' mass meeting which resolved to defy the law also resolved that those who should be arrested should meet this morning and march to the Police Court with music The resolu tion was not carried our. The men went to tbe court without procession or music. Articles ot consolidation have been filed with the Illinois Secretary of State combining the Toledo Western Railway Company, the De troit and State Line Vabih Railway Com pany, the Wabash Eastern Railway Company of Indiana, tbe Wabash Eastern Railway Com pany of Illinois, and tbe Wabash Western Rail way Company, under the general name of "The Wabash Railroad Company."

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.
