' Sheep and Lambs in large Supply Mar ket Fairly Steady. BEAT! HOGS SLOWLIGHT ACTITE Office of Pittsbubo Dispatch, 1 "Wednesday. July 81. 1S89. J The run of cattle this week was the larg est of the season, aggregating 135 car loads, an excess of 30 to 40 cars over receipts of last week. In the supplies were 4 or 5 loads of strictly prime cattle from Southern Ohio, weighing 1,500 to 1,600 lbs. For this grade offers were not good enough to meet the de mands of the shipper. The best offer made was tl S3, and the holder thought best to ship East rather than accept this figure. Beyers from eastern counties of the State were plenty, and notwithstanding the large receipts markets lield up fairly w ell with last week on desirable grades. The cattle most called for by country butchers are those neighing from 900 to 1,100 pounds. baid a 1 cadin g stockman : "Nine out of every ten of our customers ask for this grade of cattle." The highest price realized was $4 25. and only very choice butchering stock brought this price. Gooa shipping cattle were a shade stronger than last week. Butchering stock was steady at last week's prices, and common grades were lower, in some instances 25c per cwt. In the supplies were a larger number of 1,200 to 1,300 ponnd steers than tbe market demanded, and this grade was bard to sell. They were not quite up to standard for ex iwrt purpos, and a little too heavy lor the country butcher trade. Hence they were slow and sold at concessions. At noon to-day the stock was well cleaned up Dry cows, heifers and bulls were slow, especially common grades. Fresh cows were in fair suj ply, and demand was active for anything of good quality. febecp nnil Lambs. Tbe supply was much larger than last week. Monday's receipts being 30 care against 12 the previous Monday. A dozen or more loads have come in since Monday. Common grades are off from prices of last week, but .those of good quality fully held their own. Lambs were lower yesterday than Monday. A leading dealer raid: "I sola fair lambs yester day at 9yL to 4. The same, quality brought fully Kc more on Monday, and choice lambs were sold on that day at CKc bo slow were markets yesterday for both sheep and lambs that I shipped a carload consigned to me from br. Louis on to New York on advices of better markets there than here. The price at St Louis was 4c for sheep and 5c for lambs, and I could not gt an offer here that would justify the shipper, and sent the stock eastward." Markets this morning are reported better than yesterday, and some fresh arrivals of lambs found ready sale at improved prices. II os. Supply was somen hat larger than last week, and demand continues light, as is to be ex pected in midsummer weather. Consumers take to mutton more than pork this weather. Heavy hogs move very slowly. Lard has had another drop this week, and heavy-weigut bogs will be dull as long as this downward drift of hogs lasts. Light packing ho(,s are fairly steady at prices of last week. OlcCall & Co.'

Nothing Sensaltonnl In Jhe Wheat Plti bat tbe Trade Rather Choppy Favorable Neiva From Dnkotn Other Arti cles Quiet and Featureless. Chicago To-day's session closed without sensational features In tbe wheat pit. July did not sell above the closing figures of yesterday, and there were no indications of any attempt at manipulation, tbe price being down to with In a small fraction of Angust quotations be fore noon. The general market opened in a rather nervous and hesltitlng manner, with some shorts disposed to cover, as initial trades were at a decline of Jc as compared with yes terday's closing. The early weakness however, was but tem porary, and notwithstanding tbe large receipts posted here and at other points the market gradually hardened under the influence of ostentatious and rather large buy ing of August wheat by brokers for a prominent local operator. With out scarcely a reaction September moved up 5f. from opening figures and December K0 Local sentiment, in fact, -favored the bull side throughout tbe first half of the session, early cables being firm. A dispatch from Northern Dakota said that tbe spring wheat harvest had commenced and would be under full headway by August S; also, grain cutting would practically be over In two weeks, which puts; all danger from frost out of the question. Tht market closed quiet with August a shade sti onger, September and year unchanged, December Via loner and Jnly lc off. Only a moderate business was transacted In corn, trading being mainly local. Tbe feeling was comparatively Arm, and higher prices were the rule, especially so on the near futures The principal feature was tbe trade in July, which was wanted, and sold at one time at 1c premium over September. Tbe market opened at about yesterdaj's closinc, was firm and ad vanced JiSKc. reacted, losing tbe advance, ruled steady and closed about the same as yes terday. Oats were weaker and a shade lower, with a fair increase in tbe volume of transactions In mess pork very little business was trans acted, and the feeling was firmer. Prices were advanced 25c but this was lost. Toward tbe close a little demand from shorts attracted some attention, and prices were advanced sud denly 1517c, and the market closed rather firm. Rather a light business was reported In lard, and a steady feeling prevailed. Prices were advanced 2X5c, and the market closed firm. uniy a fair trade was reported n ribs Prices ruled comparatively steady early, but rallied 7K10c near the close, and. ruled rather firm. l ne leading intures ranged as lonows: WHEAT No. 2 July, 79K70jf77K77c; August. 77Vf7jAiJ77K77J2c: September. 77: TTJaS77"0; December, 78a79i76J6Q 78 Corn No. 2 August, 36V3GJc: September, 326l236y,&xytc; October. aOKeSo e3bic.

Second Liens on Property Kot Good Enough for Security. THE CENTRAL TRACTION IN LUCE Mr. Georjre Westinghouje to Perpetuate His Name at Wilmerdtng. TEE BIG BODLbYABD A KEW STATION The Fidelity Title and Trust Company, of Pittsburg, yesterday purchased the entire amount of bonds, $375,000, issued by the Central Traction Company. The price paid was 103 and interest. The Central is the only one of the local traction companies that has succeeded in placing its bonds at a pre mium. This deal will undoubtedly strengthen the Central Traction stock. Tbe sale of a fine East End residence is hanging fire on account of the insufficiency of the security lor the purchase money. A second lien on city property was offered and refused. The agent who is conducting the negotiations said: "Second liens, unless the property Is very valuable, are at a big dis count. We understand each other now, and I think the deal will go through ai; right." Those prophets of disaster who have fore told tbe speedy giving out of the natural gas supply have apparently been proven false seers The great wells in the Pittsburg dis trict, the Fmdlay (Ohio) district, and the Kokomo (Ind.) district, show no signs of slack ing their supplies except when they become choked by salt water, and that difficulty will finally be overcome by Yankee ingenuity. More bountiful wells than any yet bored are being developed every month or week; millions on millions of cubic feet of the fluid ga to waste (daily, and still It continues to gush. This being tbe case, It seems pertinent to in quire If gas could not be supplied at a mnch lower rate than Is demanded and still yield a handsome profltT It should be in every bouse, but as it costs more than coal, many nso the latter on the score of economy. m Viewers will meet next Monday at Woods' Run to assess damages and benefits growing out of tbe opening of the Ohio river boulevard, or California avenue. There is some opposi tion among property holders butit is so trifling that it will be easily overcome. Tbe avenue ba progressed so far as to Insure its comple tion, m Several Pittsburg capitalists havo large In terests in the Hocking Valley Railroad. Judge Burke has this to say of the report that a re ceiver is to be asked for: "The bondholders according to terms of bonds cannot take any action until after there has been a default ex tending to six months In other words they will have to wait until March next before they obtain redress In the meantime the extension of six months may prove of incalculable value to the stockholders and bondholders as busi ness may pickup to a sufficient extent to re coup recent losses" k A petition Is out for a station between Mc Koesport and Cbuts Park, Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, at the intersection of what is known as the Sterrett and Houghton plans, to be called Sterrett station. This is made necessary by the rapid increase of population in that dis trict. A report comes from Lima, 0 to the effect that the working of tbe Solar Refinery, which has always been very mysterious has been at last discovered. It has been a question whether they made illuminating oil out of Lima oil or not." The discovery settles the fact that it is a fine quality of naphtha that the Solar makes Tbe naphtha made from Lima oil is very cheap and is used in the manufacture of artificial gas A syndicate, composed mostly of Standard men, has organized to buy up gas plants and furnish cheaper gas than the old companies Tbe gas is said to bo of very fine quality, much superior to the oldLcoal gas and burns brighter. - Wilmerding, on the 'Pennsylvania Railroad, between Turtle Creek and Walls is building up very fast. It is pleasantly located, and will in time be an important indnstrlal center. A gentleman living in that vicinity said yesterday that he had beard that It was Mr. Westing house's intention, when the town gets a cood start, to change the name to Westinghouso to perpetuate the name of the founder in this respect following tbe example set by Mr. Pull man, near Chicago. A Liberty street produce merchant returned yesterday from a trip through New Jersey. Concerning the prospect for peaches he said reports of serious injury to tbe crop were en tirely sensational and unfounded. There has been some damage from rain, causing some of the fruit to rot, but. as the trees are much full er than usual, the loss will scarcely be felt. At the worst there will be a good average yield, and the quality will be good. He thinks peaches will bring about the same prices this year as last, or possibly a little less There is nothing more needed than a device for the suppression of tbe smoke nuisance on the railroads, and the inventor of it would not only make a fortune, but secure the thanks of many suffering communities In parts of the East End the nuisance is almost unendurable. Here is an item of interest to Pittsburg coal dealers and operators: A company of New York capitalists has recently consummated a big deal in the coal fields of Illinois Six hun dred acres have been purchased from theTBnck eye Coal Company nearPekin and options have been secured on 5,000 acres in that vicinity. They have also bought lands of the Mapleton Coal Company. Negotiations are in progress for the purchase of other large quantities of coal lands and it is surmised that blast fur naces and a rolling mill are to be erected by the syndicate and operated in connection with tbe mines WELL SUSTAINED. Stocks Mora Consplcuooi for Strength Than Activity No Weak Spots. The stock market yesterday was strong, but not remarkable for activity. Still it did very well for tbe dog days The total sales were 130 shares The stocks most conspicuous for strength were Electric and the gassers. Even the tractions were firm. There were no particu larly weak spots It was said that Electric owed its strength to the belief, which seems to be growing, that tbe forthcoming decision will be favorable It closed at 51 bid and 55 asked. Captiin Barbour said: "1 knew soon alter the market opened that we wouldn't do much. Buyers and sellers were too far apart." Both Philadelphia Gas and Electrio were scarce. There was a report, apparently well founded, that the Federal Street and Pleasant Valley Railway Company had purchased tbe Hand street bridge, the price paid being variously stated at 8275.000 and 8300,000. By this deal, if It should turn out to be one, the railway company will save heavy rental and derive a large in come from tolls Tbe bridge company was organized more tban 50 years ago, and its divi dends have never been less than 8 per cent.

Yesterday being the last day of the month, as was to be expected trading in oil vas very light, and the market was weak all day, at no time rising above the dollar line. At the finish, which was close to the lowest point of the day, the feeling was decidedly bearish. Deliveries of the August option amounted to about 100,000 barrels September will be the regular stuff to-day. Cash oil will be in de mand for several days. As high as 40 cents was paid for carrying it. The fluctuations were: Opening. 9Sc: highest, 99c; lowest, 934c; closing, aSa The opinion seemed to be that the market would bang around present figures for a day or two and then move up. The Acbeson well. Washington county, came in Tuesday night. It is said to be a gusher. For the first 13 hours It Is said to have done 50 barrels an hour. Field work in that district is very active and generally satisfactory. Features of the Market. Corrected daily by John M. Oaxiey A Co., 45 Sixth street, members of the Pittsburg Petro leum Exchange.

STOCKS NO BETTEE. Another Wet Blanket Time In Wall Street Western Operators Ball the Grnog- er A Drop la tbe Lend Trust Rnllroad Bond Bracing Dp. New York, July 3L The stock market was again dull to-day, and the business of the fore noon was the smallest dnrine- that tu fnr weeks The operations were principally pro fessional, and the changes in quotations re fleeted only the scalping for fractions of that class of operators uutil later in the day, Lon don after that time was prominent as a buyer, and the Western operators also came into the market upon the long side and bulled tbe Grangers. The unexpectedly favorable report of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy for June stimulated buying of tbe Granger stocks and incidentally the entire market. The opening prices were in most cases slightly higher than last evening's closing figures but thero was demand for stocks and the profes sionals and traders had the market for the time being all to themselves, and some of the late strong stocks such as the Chesa peake and Ohlos. developed considerable weak ness upon the realizations of the traders Tbe selling of Lead Trust was continued, and It dropped to 21, while it became more active tban for some time back. New England was well supported, however, and was in marked contrast to tbe rest of tbe list, advancing a fraction. Tbe issub of the Burlington report toward noon, however, pnt a different face upon matters and bnytne began about noon, when tbe whole list moved up with a marked increase in activity, Burlington crossing 101. Reading 44 and St. Paul touching 7L Some of the leading drawers of exchange made a change in tbetr rates to reduce the difference betweon tbo demand and 60 day rates which helped the buying ta some extent. Tbe new buying continued up to nearly de livery hour when tbe demand slacked off and the realizations were renewed, but toward the close, which was dull though firm, the market again stiffened up and prices again advanced slightly. Owing to the renewed iatereK in lead the nulls ted stocks furnished a larger proportiorf of the day's business than usual of late. In tbe final changes only one ofira- Eortance Is to be noticed, an advance of 1 In lelaware and Hudson. . There was a little more animation in railroad bonds .the sales of all Issues aggrrgatlns $1,024,000, but there was no specially active bond on the list.

A private cablegram was received from London to-day, stating that the Peter Schoenhofen Brewing Com pany Of Chicago had been incorporated and capitalized to the amount of $3,000,000 balf ot which would be taken in this city and half in London. Ex-Mayor Carter Harri son and Mr. Franklin Gray were mentioned in tbe dispatch as two of the directors of the new corporation. They were seen and said they bad been tendered the position named and had accepted. Mr. George P. Schoen hofen, junior member of tbe firm, when asked concerning the report, said: "Subscription books were opened in London to-day for the placing of stock in the company, which has been capitalized at $3,000,000. We desire it understood that the brewery is not, however, to pass into English hands, for Mr. Peter Schoenhofen holds 51 per cent of tbe stock and will con tinue to do so. Moreover, a number of Chicago gentlemen'cabled to-day subscrip tions for stock." LATE NEWS IN BRIEF. Charles Dilger, murderer of two policemen last August, and Harry Smart, mnrderer of Meisner Green and wife, were banged at Louis ville yesterday. Congressman Lawler and other members of the Business Men's Relief Committee bave left Chicago with additional supplies for the half starved locked-out miners at Btreator, BL One of the heaviest shocks of earth nnake felt in San Francisco- for years occurred here abnnt 4.45 yesterdav morning. People were awakened by the rattllne of windows and the shaking of buildlnqn. No damage reported. Judge Lambert Tree, ex-United States Minister to Russia, bas tendered to the Com missioners ot Lincoln Park, Chicago, a bronze statue of Robert Carelier do La Salle, whoso explorations of Western and Northwestern North America form an important part nf the history of theUcitod States. This statue Jddge Tree caused to be executed while he wa abroad as an evidence of his admiration of La Salle and bis achievements 1 At Allegan, Mich., during a thunder storm Saturday night the bam nf Christian Maskey was struck by lightning. Mr. Maskey had just driven in with a load of hay. Tbe father, two horses and a colt were instantly killed. A 12-year-old son was stunned, but recovered con sciousness and tried to draw his father out from the burning barn. One of the horses had fallen on tbe father's lees. A neighbor came to his aid. The barn, filled with this year's crops was entirely consumed. Much indignation is felt in British Colum bia over the seizure of the schooner Black Dia mond in BehrlngSea by tbe United States reve nue cutter Richard Rush. A public meeting will probably beheld and resolutions passed for transmission to the Imperial Parliament, asking that tbe Imperial Government Interfere In bcbalf of British vessels In the sealing trad?. It Is believed here that If hut one roan has been placed aboard the Black Diamond her Captain will not obey the Rush orders, and will sail for Victoria instead of Sitka. T. H. Tolliver, a negro of Nashville, Tenm, shot two Indians connected with a circus yes terday. The wounds of one at least will prove fatal. Tolliver was the "horse thief of the cirens being lassoed by tbe cowboys and finally banged to a tree at each performance. The Indians were on a big spree the night before and on the way here abused tbe negro In various wavs. culminating in his shooting two of them. His story is that he acted in self-do-f ense and it is snbstantiated by eye-witnesses He is in jail while tbe two injured Indians are Ivlng at the hospital. Their names are Red Ear and Looks Bad. The representatives of the roads affected by the recent cat by the Pennsylvania road to $0 fare between Chicago. Cincinnati, Louisville and New AiDany nave determined to meet it. and bave sent tbe necessary preliminary notice to the Inter-Stati Commerce Commission. It will take effect August 2. It includes also a $3 50 rate between Chicago and Indianapolis '1 he roads interested are tbe Cleveland, Cin cinnati, Chicago and St. Louis tbe Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton and tbo Louisville, New Albany and Chicago. Various motives are as signed to the Pennsylvania for making this cnt and refusing to give a reason to the other roads in the Chicago and Ohio river division. Among them is that the Pennsylvania will nse this to aid In making low rates to the Milwaukee G. A. R. meeting. KSBjEai I am satisfied tbat Cancer is hereditary in my family.

Markets are overstocked with Southern to matoes and the result is a general weakening of prices. Chicago shippers who paid SI to SI 10 per crate and 40c expressage and sold here at $1 25. are not jubilant over the situation. The movement of potatoes is active, but no advance in prices is reported. Southern potatoes are approaching their end for this season, and the home-grown article is expected at tbe front next week. Cheese, butterand eggs are quiet. A leading dealer gives as the reason tbat this is tbe last day of the month. Customers are hold ing off till to-morrow, so that they may bave 30 days' grace for payment of bills. Domestic Sweitzer cheese Is In good demand. The new stock, which is now coming in freely, is above the average In quality. Good pastnrage and cool nights have been helpful to qiality of cheese this season. It is not the easiest thing in the world to keep in line with vegetable markets on account of frequent fluctuations.

"I would rather die tban undergo another ex perience such as I have for the past foor years ' The catarrhal poison in my system caused me to be continually taking cold, and 'with every cold the pains In ray head becams more in tense. Although I was able to get rid of some ot the poisonous matter by hawking and spit tlnc ont what dropped down Into my throat, and had some nasal discharge, yet the secre tion kept piling np In my head mnch faster than I was able to expel It, until aserere Inflam mation and ulceration set in. My eyes became' so inflamed and weak that I was pbliged to wear spectacles lor one year and a halt. My nose became greatly swollen and puffed oat and the disease ulcerated ilner.er and aeeDBT I until fire bones dropped ont of my cose. some oi tnem measuring one Inert and a nail In length. Also, a large bone dropped oat of the roof of my month. Although my appetite, was good, vet I gradually lost flesh until I only weighed 73 pounds. I treated with several physicians, but found no relief, for I could neither get any peace by day or rest by night. I finally became very deaf, and as my condi tion was continually growing worse Igave up. all hope, until one day I 'happened to read in. the papers testimonials from patients who had. been cured of catarrh at tbe Catarrh and. Dyspepsia Institute, at S3 Penn avenue, and as these patients' lull name and residence was given, 1 thought tbat perhaps there was. yet some doctor who did really cure. ' catarrh. I called at the Catarrii and Dyspepsia Institute, and was. told by tbe physicians that altbongh t bey could cot restore the lost parts occasioned by the bones dropoing oat, they could yet remove every trace of tbe catarrhal poison from my system, and thus savo me from consumption for my throat had become very sore and ulcer ated, and I was afraid I would die with con sumption, as some of my friends had done. 1 therefore placed myself under their treatment and tbey have kept their word, for I have been. . entirely cured by tbelr constitutional blood medicines, and, strange as it may seem, they nerer gave me any local treatments at all. This leads me to think that catarrh has its origin in tbe blood. My hearing has been re stored. I have regained my flesh, ana feel well and strong. I reside on Penn avenue, this city, just opposite Hi. Mary's Cemetery, and shall be pleased to tell anyone further of my terrible suffering anl wonderful cure. "MRS.
