Growing Demand for Cnred Meats
Cheap Lard a Blessing,
Weather is Not Sufficiently Warm to Suit
Ice Dealers.
office or rrrrsBuro dispatch, I
Tdesday. July SO. issa J
The demand for cured meats has been im
proving the past week. The weather has
been adverse to fresh meat trade, and as a
consequence there has been increased activ
ity in ham and bacon.
Lard is the weak factor of the pork pack
ing industry. It has, however, been much
lower than it is to-dav. In July and Au
gust. 1STO. cash lard sold at S5 SO in Chicago,
while the price there now Is S6 10. There in a
strong drift of late toward unadulterated lard,
which may be set down to tha credit of low
prices. For a number of years past the bulk
of that sold in t)is market was far from being
the genuine product of the hog. Cottonseed
oil and other ingredients entered moroorless
Into the article on the market, and the grocers
were few who did not yield to the pressure and
sell the adulterated article. The abundance
and cheapness or the genuine article the past
reason has had the wholesome effect of sending
cottonseed lard to the rear. The sentiment of
trade is steadily growing in favor or the genu
ine stuff, showing that the destinies in the long
run are against everything bogus. It is good
for the consumer when an article becomes too
cheap to adulterate.
A representative of the Chautauqua Ice Com
pany gives the situation of bis industry as fol
lows: "Our trade this season has been rather
below the average, owing to the cold, back
ward spring. May and June failed to keep up
their usual record for heat, and consumers
were ranch slower than usual making demands
upon our trade. July has done better, but we
could endure much better weather than wo
have had thus far for the sake of our industry.
The ice business last season was curtailed not
a little by the decisions of the License Court
cutting off so many saloons. Some of this
loss, of course, was made up by the
natural increase of tr&de, but not
all. This season the weather has
been adverse, and unless wo shall have
a hot August and September we will be below
other ears in volume ot business a second sea
son. The ice crop gathered last season was
much below the average. Weather was not at
all favorable for heavv ice, and if the summer
had turned out an average amount of beat
there would have been a shortage, so far as our
comuanv is concerned. While we did not have
the facilities to gather all the ice we would have
stored away, owing to the mild weather of last
winter, it appears from tbepreaent outlook that
we will have enough to meet the wants of trade.
Both winter and summer have been too moder
ate for our trade this year."
Advrrtlstnc In England.
An English newspaper, the &ait Suuex
JVu, thus descants upon the question of ad
vertising, and the good points made will do
found as applicable here as over the seas:
"The value of an advertisement is in exact
proportion to the influence it exercises upon
those who are thereby induced to purchase the
articles to which it draws attention. For local
purposes, newsDapers circulating extensively
among a good class nf readers residing within
easy distance of the advertiser should always
be chosen, if the subject matter is of general
interest, then the more widely circulated and
more expensive mediums should be selected.
The Important thing is to ascertain what papers
are read and likely to seenre the object the
advertiser has in view. The papers that are
bought to be read are those which have some
thing fresh in them to read. All papers having
a ready sale have no difficulty in getting adver
tisements at a fair price, and advertisers should
studiously avoid the 'cheap man.' True in this,
as in t'very other walk of life, 'cheap and nas
ty.' Papers that insert announcements in big
tvpe, like small posting bill", or hideous blocks,
of which it is frequently difficult toknow the
meaning, carry with them their own condemna
tion. The proprietors are willing to insert any
thing at any price if tbey can only save expense
in production by filling up a given space in the
sheet Which they send forth as a newspaper.
Liook at the leading papers in London and the
important towns ot England. Do we find there
that one advertiser is allowed to try to 'kill' the
other by having the ugliest contrivance to
attract attention? Certainly not."
Business Notes,
Mr. Jotxk D. Bailey will offer at auction
next Thursday afternoon 10,000 Junction
Terminal 5s.
Checks are out for the 3 per cent semi an
nual dividend on Wcstinghonse Airbrake, Lon
don limited.
Tiie Pennsylvania Railroad Company has
ordered 5,000 new cars, anticipating a heavy
business in the near future.
The far Northwestern crops are reported
very much better, and likely to show an in
crease of fully 50 per cent otfer last year.
Grain delivenes at Chicago are reported in
creasing. The latest letter from H. J. Harbaugh, Esq.,
now at the; Sunflower quartz mine in Sierra
county, CaL, is to the effect that the farther
the recently developed vein of quartz is pene
trated, the richer it is in ore. The latest assay
showed a yield of 600 per ton. Pittsburg
(stockholders are jubilant over the good news.
It is announced that the Pioneer W oolen
Factory in San Francisco is for sale, there
being no longer any money in manufacturing
woolen goods in California, tho market for that
product being too limited, and high railroad
rates acting as a barrier to the profitable ship
ment ot the goods to the East. No dividends
ha e been paid by the company for five years.

Sensational Foreign News Gives a Firmer
Tone to Wheat Tho Russian Crop
Said to bo the Worst for
ManyTears Hob Prod
ucts Moving Freely.
Chicago The wheat market to-day has been
moderately active, but with the trade largely
local. Outside orders were light both ways,
and tho feeling is still quite unsettled. Despite
the fact that a majority of tho traders were
working on the expectation of an advance,
speculative values lor the leading futures
averaged a shade under yesterday's closing
most of tho forenoon. The weakest feature of
the day was in the posting of receipts, which
showed 147 cars more than expected. Cables
were depressing. The opening for futures hero
was JiXc under yesterday's latest bids for
all f ut res beyond July, and business in tho pit
throughout the entire session was of tho scalp
ing sort, though toward noon prices firmed up
Jlc from the early inside range.
Tho reaction was due chiefly to a sensational
cable in regard to the excessive dry weather.
It said: ''Russian official reports now admit
that tho condition of the crops is tho worst in
many years, and that unless all signs fail the
estimate of the world's product to bo compiled
at the Vienna international seed fair August
24, will show a situation considerable worse
than that of last year." Undoubtedly local
bear operators were somewhat intimidated
by this news. Considerable short wheat was
said to bare been covered here to-day by St.
Louis parties, and there was some selling on
the big failure in Boston of a prominent boot
and shoe concern. Toward the close the mar
ket became quite buoyant,innucnced by strong
late cables through private sources and the
good local cash demand. Final closing quota
tions were around the top, and Kc above
yesterday's closings.
A moderate degree of activity was manifest
in corn, and transactions were at slightly high
er prices. The volume of business was not
large, being mainly local. The better tone was
attributed largely to the strength m the cash
market, the shipping demand being good, and
July and August were relatively stronger in con
sequence, local shorts covering and shippers
buying. The July future ruled at a premium
of Jc compared with September. The market
opened atyesterday's closing prices; was steady
for a time, then advanced 4Jc, recoded a
little, ruled steady and closed JiS'ic higher
than yesterday.
Oats were traded in with a little more free
dom, and a steady feeling developed, especial
ly for July, which was purchased by the shorts,
and it developed that there was more out than
most operators had an idea of. Longs as a
rule were disposed to sell, and met buyers
freely, but prices showed little change. The
more deferred deliveries were quiet and steady.
Early the market for mess pork exhibited
considerable activity. Opening transactions
were made at 10c decline, and prices ruled
irregular within a range of 25c. Later a re
duction ot 10c was submitted to with fair sales,
but this was quickly followed by an advance of
1012e. Near the close prices settled back
again 5;c and the market closed quiet.
A little more steadiness was manifested in
the lard market early in the day, and prices
were slightly improved. During the latter part
of the session offerings were slightly increased,
and prices receded again and closed quiet.
Quite an active trade was reported in tho
market for short ribs, mainly in September do
livery. Prices opened slightly lower, followed
by a further reduction of 2a With a good
demand later the feeling was steadier, and
prices rallied 25c. Toward the close tho
market ruled weaker again, and tho improve
ment was lost.

The Lato Tony Newoll's East End
Hesort Finds a Purcbaseiv
A Former Citizen Gives Pittsburg Capital
ists Some Good Pointers.
W. A. Herron & Sons sold at Orphans'
Court sale yesterday the property corner
Forbes street and Shady lane, well known
as the Newell Road House, consisting of
six acres of land, with a large brick dwell
ing, out-buildings, stables, sheds, etc
After active competition the bidding closed
at $33,000, and was knocked down at that
price. 5he new owner, Mr. H. A. Miller,
intends renting it for a time. He purchased
it as an investment and not for a home.
The late Tony Newell came into posses
sion of the land by purchase in October,
1SS4, and be erected the buildings and made
other extensive improvements. Under his ad
ministration it was one of the most popular re
sorts in the East End.
The work of tearing up Second avenue for
the accommodation of the electric road has
been stopped, ana track laying and paving
will begin on this end of the line as soon as the
rails can be obtained. Their delivery on con
tract time was prevented by the flood at
Johnstown. It is the intention to have the cars
running by December 1, or sooner if possible.
The assurance of rapid transit is causing a
great demand for building sites in the Glen
wood district, where the big Blair estate has
been subdivided and put on the markets This
section promises to become in a few j ears one
of the most populous parts of "the city. Its
close proximity to the business and manufac
turing centers, together with its unsurpassed
natural attractions, is commanding the atten
tion of a good class of people who desire to es
tablish homes at a moderate outlay of money.
Loans and discounts of the local national
banks amount to 535,971,057. While this is a
large sum, it represents only about one-third of
the loanable funds of these institutions, snow
ing that there is a great abundance of unem
ployed money. In addition. State and savings
banks hold large amounts the whole consti
tuting a reserve which should dispel all
thoughts of financial stringency until the con
ditions are reversed, of which there is no pres
ent likelihood.
There is almost a certainty, therefore, that
money will be plentiful and rates low for some
time to come.
Mr. Robert Youne; a native of Pittsburg, and
who will be remembered as proprietor of a
livery stable in Lawrenceville about 20 years
ago, but who is now a resident ot Philadelphia,
is in the city visiting old friends. In a brief
interview yesterday he said Philadelphia was
growing at a rapid rate, both in sizo and busi
ness. Sincehewentthere in 1876, houses enough
have been built to accommodate a population
of over 200,000. Capitalists there are very much
interested in real estate, regarding it as the
best form of investment. Many large blocks of
dwelling houses, some of them covering entire
squares, are going up in all parts of the city.
These investments yield an average rate of 6
per cent Interest, which is entirely satisfactory
to the capitalists. He added that rents are
cheaper In Philadelphia than in any other city
in the United States, and that a larger propor
tion of the inhabitants own the houses they
live in than in any other American city.
There is one point in this interview which Is
of peculiar importance to Pittsburg, where the
greatest obstacle to the expansion of popula
tion is the scarcity of houses. If local capital--
ists would follow the Philadelphia plan of
building largo blocks, tbey would benefit them
selves and do the publlo a service of inestima
ble importance.
If reports be true, homestead loan and trust
companies are superseding building and loan
associations. A gentleman who is familiar
with the subject said yesterday: "Recently
quite a number of loan and trnst companies
have been organized in Pittsburg and vicinity.
They are largely composed of persons who
were formerly identified with building and
loan societies.
"Tho new system possesses several advantages
over tho old, but the principal one is of a finan
cial nature. Money can bo obtained on better
terms, loans being made at the uniform rate of
4 per cent for, any length of time desired, and
there are no premiums to pay. It has been in
nrocess of development for 12 years, and is be
lieved to be as near perfect as anything of
human origin can be."
In Respect to Business, bnt No Break
There were no surprises in the local stock
market yesterday, and while trading was light,
prices, -with a few exceptions, were well sus
tained. Philadelphia Gas was a trifle weaker,
but the other gassers were strong, particularly
Chartlers, Wheeling and West Virginia, very
little of either being offered. Central Traction
was fractionally lower, but Citizens' was
stronger, 70 being bid for it without accept
ance La Noria was neglected In the forenoon, bnt
became qaite active later on, 200 shares selling
at IK. and the demand at that figure unsatis
fied. At the clse 2 was asked. Switch and
Signal closed a trifle firmer. Electric was
strong at 61 old and 52 asked, with none on
the market. There is a report that It is being
quietly absorbed and held for an advance,
which is reckoned upon as a pretty sure thing.
The rest or the list was featureless. Henry M.

was on a limited scale, leaving the flow of
capital In favor of the banks. Depositing was
Lf air, but checking was rather under the average.
Two or three of the banks were said to be
pretty well loaned up, but the rest confessed to
a troublesome surplus. The exceptions are
due to the slight revival In the speculative in
terest. The exchanges were 51,977,553 78 and
the balances S415.655 02. The outlook con
tinues good for a radical Improvement In a few

A Sadden Drop In Oil and a Close Below a
The oil market was dull and uninteresting
yesterday from every point of observation.
For the first time since the 23d the close was
below a dollar. Trading was light all along the
line. The only interesting episode ofthefday
occurred shortly after tho noon hour, when
there was a quick slump from the highest to
the lowest point of the day. A droR of 2 cents
in a few minutes caused the "boys" to open
their eyes and wonder what it meant. It was
in response to a bear raid in New York. The
market soon rallied under good buying in Oil
The apathy was not due to any changes In
conditions, but to the indisposition to operate
so near the end of the month, beptemberoll
will be In order after to-dav, when some shorts
will be let out and a new deal commenced. Tho
fluctuations were: Opening, lOOHt. highest,
100K; lowest. 9SH; closing, 9 Monday's
clearings were 168,000 barrels. Tlioe,of yester
day did not exceed 50,000. The indications at
the close were that the market would remain
weak for several days, or until tho faeptcmber
deal Is well under way.
A Mercer dispatch sas; Considerable in
terest was occasioned in this place yesterday
morning, by the report that a 60-barrel oil well
had been struck two miles east of Sandy Lake,
this county, on the Raymilton road The terri
tory is claimed by oil men to be a good one, and
the wells that have already come in will lead to
a thorough test of this entire oil field, and the
prospects are good for livening up a number of
the towns in Mercer and Venangp counties.
The Campbell well, on the Campbell lot. In
Mill creek bottom, near Beaver, came In small,
and will probably do from 5 to 10 barrels. It Is
on a direct line east and west, drawn through
the Union RaylNo. 1, both good producers.

New" York, July 3a The stock market was
again dull to-day, though there was consider
able animation In parts ot the list, which
brought the total transactions up to something
above thoe of yesterday. There was also a
more decided tone to the dealings, and material
advances were made among the leading specu
latives, with the exception of Reading. There
were many rumors in regard to tho last named
company, but none of them were corroborated,
and after the first demonstration seemed to
have little or no effect upon the stock. The re
ports of the Nortnwestern and St. Paul were
positive bull arguments, and with the higher
figures from London this morning there was a
generally higher opening here, most of the
stocks traded in showing gains of from to
per cent, while Northwestern was up as tho
result of the statement. Considerable pressure
was brought to bear upon Reading and Atchi
son, and afterward upon the Lead Trust, the
last named being again affected by a report of
a still further increase in the outstanding cer
tificates, the amonnt now being placed at $100,
OOU.000. There was nothing positive about
either of the weak stocks, however, and in
neither of them did the concession equal 1 per
cent, except in Lead.
Missouri racinc and the Grangers were con
spicuously strong during this time, and in the
afternoon there was a renewal of the buying
which had been checked bv the reports of a
heavy failure in Boston at the opening, when
there was also some selling for Eastern account.
Reports became current that the earnings of
Reading for July would show a handsome in
crease, and the market became not only more
active in all its departments, but decidedly
strong as well, and almost everything traded In
moved up with more speed, and Chicago Gas,
Chesapeake and Ohio, Missouri Pacific and the
Grangers were especially prominent in the up
ward movement. Reading also joined the pro
cession in the last hour, and the market finally
closed dull, but firm, at about the best figures
of the day. The active stocks are higher this
evening, and Chesapeake -and Ohio first pre
ferred rose 2, the secondpref erred North
western 1 and Missouri Paciflo 1.
Railroad bonds were still anil and featureless,
though the tone of the market, if anything. was
a little stronger than during the past few days,
and most issues traded in show slight gains.
The sales reached 5755,000. Chicago and Mil
waukee firsts rose 2, to 126; Ohio, Indiana and
Western firsts 2f, to 7a Wabash second cer
tificates lost 2 at 99.

of Saturday night at Chicago has been to put

Mrs. Ed Iioomis. who resides on a farm in
the town of Osceola, Wis., committed suicide
at 6 o'clock Sunday morning by taking strych
nine. Her husband was attending to his stock
when Mrs. Loomis left her bed and took the
poison. Soon afterward she told the house
maid. A physician was summoned but the
poison bad done its work before he arrived.

Chief of Police Hubbard, of Chicago, ac
companied by Lieutenant Alexander Ross,
have left for Winnipeg, where they will arrive
Wednesday at noon. The chief is determined
to have Burko, and as soon as the full bench
at Winnipeg renders its decision, it is probable
that the prisoner will bo started South. The
chiefs object in going to Winnipeg is to per
sonally superintend the work of bringing the
prisoner and the witnesses, Carlson and Mar
ilnsen, back to Chicago. So much has been
said about assassinating the men that he deems
it good judgment to exerciseeverypossible pre
caution to assure their safety.
Cattle men in the Indian Territory report
that Texas fever is playing havoc among the
cattle in the Territory. Over 40 head were seen
dead in one pasture alone, and In others num
bers varying from 7 to 23. Tbey also stated
that hnndreds or cattle were dying in Oklaho
ma, and predicted that there would not be a
living head of the cattle imported into that
country from the States of Kansas and Ne
braska in two months. The fatality among cat
tle in Oklahoma is not caused so much from
Texas fever as from the effect the more south
ern climate has on them. Reports from Guth
rie, Oklahoma City and other points in the
Territory verify this statement.
The forest fire which has been raging In
Colorado for several days was started over a
week ago by some sportsmen in No Name
canyon, whereby Mr. J. Brown, his family and
a party of ladies narrowly escaped death only
escaping by wading through a creek for nearly
two miles on their hands and knees. The fire
has now spread and covers an area ol over ten
square miles. The entire air in the western
slope is filled with smoke from the burning
mountains. Reports from Red Cliff, Leadville,
Aspen and New Castle report the sun com
pletely obscured. The sight from Glens ood in
the evening is magnificent, as the entire face of
No Name and Grizzly Mountains Is one mass
of flame.

There was but one sale on call, viz: a car of No.
2 oats, 29c, September. Everything in grain
and hay lines is slow. Prospects for abundant
crops are too good for any successful bull move
ment. The situation is In burers' favor all
along the line. Oats are particularly weak.
Demand for hay is light Corn is the strongest
factor of cereal markets. Buyers look for con
cessions, but have not succeeded, so far, in
breaking markets. There is, however, little
doubt that a lower level will be reached soon.
Generous nature is altogether In favor of bears
for this season.

L. M. Morris, a creditor of the firm of
Graff, Bennett -fc Co.. yesterday filed excep
tions to the final account of John H. Bailey,
assignee of the firm. Mr. Morris objects to the
item of $50,000 on the debit side of the account
for property and assets sold to a syndicate He
claims that the property, when sold, was worth
at least five times that amount. Mr. Morris
holds the order of court, for sale, does not pro
tect the assignee from responsibility for such
an enormous sacrifice, inasmuch as he omitted
to have tho property and assets appraised.
