?Enn of Cattle at Liberty Yards the
Largest This Season.
' Sheep and Lambs in large Supply Mar
ket Fairly Steady.
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
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
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.

rather nervous and hesltitlng manner, with
some shorts disposed to cover, as initial trades
were at a decline of Jc as compared with yes

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

a prominent local operator. With

tbe spring wheat harvest had commenced and

weeks, which puts; all danger from frost out of
the question. Tht market closed quiet with

Second Liens on Property Kot Good
Enough for Security.
Mr. Georjre Westinghouje to Perpetuate
His Name at Wilmerdtng.
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.
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"
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

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
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.

The Oil Market Winds Up the Month With
out much Tim.
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.

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.

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

bonds .the sales of all Issues aggrrgatlns
$1,024,000, but there was no specially active bond
on the list. The tone of the market continued
generally firm.

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

tinue to do so. Moreover, a number of
Chicago gentlemen'cabled to-day subscrip
tions for stock."

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

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

Ear and Looks Bad.

$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.

I am satisfied tbat Cancer is hereditary in my
family. My father died of it. a sister of my
mother died of it, and my own sister died of It.
My feelings may be imagined, then, when the
horrible disease made its appearance on my

wardly in such a way that it could not be cut
out. Numerous remedies were used for it, but
tbo Cancer grew steadily worse, until Itseemed
tbat I was doomed to follow tbe others ot tbe

Country.Produce Jobbing Prlcss.
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.
