Telegraphic reports show an improvement
in general business in nearly all sections of
the country. The iron trade is regarded as
being in a particularly good condition.

New Yobk, August 9. Special tele
grams to Bradstreet's report a somewhat
larger -volume of trade at Philadelphia,
Pittsburg, Louisville, Cincinnati, Kansas
City, Chicago and Galveston, and at other
points the outlook for the autumn trade is
bright Anthracite coal and lumber at the
East remain quiet, and raw wool has been
somewhat depressed by several failures
among manufacturers. This has affected
general trade in some degree at Boston.
Kentucky's burley tobacco acreage is re
ported at 7075 per cent of that in 18S8,
arid of dark tobacco 5W&00 per cent.
Prices are advancing on prospective short
crop and renewed purchases. Hog products
are stronger, notably "Western steam lard.
At San Francisco 200,000 bushels of wheat
have been chartered for Brazil and 37,000
shipped to Australia. Although narrow,
stock speculation is strong and prices ad
vance on the increasing grain -movement at
Participation seems to be growing and
unusual confidence is expressed in the
probability of more active movement in
speculation and investment. Bonds are
strong with increasing demand. Money at
Ker York is easy on call and firm on time.
Call loans 34 pier cent. Time monev is 5
per cent. Foreign exchange is dull but
firmer on the advance of rates at London.
Demand sterling. W 874 87. .
Gross earnings of 121 railroads for eight
months of this year amount to 5201,478,264,
against f 188,321,191 during the correspond
ing period of 18S8. The mileage upon
whicn these figures are based is 73,140 against
70,183 miles last yean In Jnly, 1889,-only
21 companies showed decreases, as com
pared with July, 1888, while in June, 18S9,
returns from 47 companies were smaller
than in June, 1888.
There is increased activity in drygoods
jobbing lines at Sew York, but notably in
cotton and wool dress goods. Southern 'and
Southwestern jobbers are the chief buyers.
Commission men report trade moderate.
Prices are, as a whole, steady, the onlv
notable exception being in print cloth
futures, which are weaker. The export de
mand for cottons is less active. AVooIen
goods are in moderate sale at recent ad
vances (27J p. c). Baw wool is easier,
but not quotably lower, on less active de
mand. Baw cotton is in fairly good demand
at unchanged quotations. Sear new crop
futures are higher on less favorable crop re
ports. iron rx good shape.
Consumption of iron has reached the high
est point of the year, and fnrnaces, mills,
bloomeries and shops are all well filled with
orders for from one to three months. Prices
are steady, and under the stimulus to pro
duction imparted by firmer quotations the
supply of all kinds of material will probably
be sufficieat to repress any actual advance.
Copper is now more firmly held than since
July 1. and in consequence mining stocks
are in better demand. The various produc
ing companies have come to a new agree
ment to sustain the price of Lake Snperior
ingot at 12c per pound, with the casting
brands at lllljc according to quality.
Prices of raw sugar are shaded, with con
tinued restricted takings by refiners and
only a moderate decrease in arrivals, thus
increasing stocks at four ports to 10,345 tons.
The world's visible supply of sugar is given
at 519,016 tons, against 575,165 tons last
week and 816,433 tons a vear ago. Kenned
sugar has been in moderate request, al
though marked down .c on Friday. Coffee
has been variable, with the result on the
week a moderate advance 1030 points.
In distributive lines the movement has
been fairly active, Brazil growths proving
COFFEE AND BREADSTUFFS.
Coffee prices for the autumn appear to de
pend upon theBrazilian crop. Should that
crop cqnal 6,000,000 bags lower prices are
likely to rule, but if the total is only about
4,000,000 bags, higher prices will be in
The week has brought a reaction in bread
stuffs, caused by improved home and foreign
crop reports, moderate export demand and
stronger ocean freight rates. Flour de

Business failures reported to Bradstreet's
number 173 in the United States this week,
against 213 last week and 186 this week last
year. Canada had 31 this week against 23
last week. The total of failures in the
United States from January 1 to date is
7,032 against 6,227 in 1888.
A BETTEE FEELING ALL ABOUND.
B. G. Dun Sc Co. Notice a Decided Im
provement io Basinets.
New York, August 9. B. G. Dun's
weekly review ot trade says:
Tbs changes In the business world during the
week, though bat slight, have all been in the
right direction. There is a little better move
ment of products, some improvement in crop
prospects, particularly in cotton, and with more
confidence and strength in the stock market,
less chance of disturbing withdrawals ot specie
for Europe. In manufactures all changes are
in the direction ot improvement, and the re
ports from interior points indicate a volume of
trade exceeding last year's, and on the wholo
steadily increasing. Of Ml cities reporting this
week, scarcely one notes dullness In trade, and
thongh business is "rather inactive" at Kansas
City, a better demand for money is seen.
At Detroit, while general trade is fair. con.
siderable building u in progress, and collec
tions, slow in some lines, are good in others.
Omaha finds trade good and crops fair. Mil
waukee finds excellent crop prospects, except
for corn, and business good, Chicago rejoices
in the assurance of abundant crops, and deal
ings in provisions exceed those ot the samo
week last year by 50 per cent, in wool by 25 per
cent and in live stock and hides by 10 per cent.
At Philadelphia there is seen general improve
ment, at Galveston very favorable crop reports
give strength and at Boston tbero is a signifi
cant hardening of the money market.
END OF THE COKE STBIKE.
The coke strike has ended and removes ap
prehension of the closing of many iron works
la the Pittsburg district. In pig iron the price
has advanced about SO cents, and manufactured
iron is strong. The glass trade is good. The
copper producers have agreed to continue
present prices. Tin is weaker abroad, but the
American demand is larger than ever, and lead
is dull at $3 85.
In wool and woolen goods thero is not much
change. Bales have been light, and spinners
still buy sparingly. The market for cotton
loods is more satisfactory, but the market for
taw cotton doe not yield, though the new crop
lv now expected to be large, and from two to
Uiree weeks early. In boots and shoes the
severity of the competition makes profits very
sa rrow. Bobber Is weak and declining.
With steady improvement in the reports
from the Northwest, wheat has declined about
three-eighths cent on sales of only 8,000.000
bnsbels here, and corn one-half cent on sales of
6,000.000 bnshels. Oats are nearly a cent lower,
and'hogs 10 cents per 100 pounds. In oil there
is an advance of one-half cent, and in coffee
prices have been lifted three-quarters of a
cent. Sugar la strictly nominal, with 6K cents
quoted as abovo any bid at pretest obtainable,
and the narrative that an international smdl
cate is getting ready to buy Cuba from'Bpaln,
and to control all sources of supply of raw
sugar, may be mentioned as Indicating the diffi
culties which the trust and the Magdeburg
syndicate begin to realize.
The stock market has been strong and ad
vancing. A rational explanation is that rail
roads are assured of a large fall business, and
so will be powerfully pressed to adjust differ
ences, if only for a time. The average price ot
the more active stocks is about 11 60 per share
higher than a week ago, and foreign realizing
no longer appear. The tendency of capital
toward industrial combinations may naturally
have been checked of late, and this would
lessen tbe disposition to realize on good secur
ities. During the weektbe treasury has taken
in 51,090 000 more than it has paid out, but tbe
merchandise exports from New York for the
week were nearly SO per cent above last year's,
with an increase of about 20 per cent in im
ports. The bnslness failures number 201 as com
pared with a total of 210 last week and 218 the
week previous. For the corresponding week
of last year fiere were 233.
A MAN WHO tflLL NOT DIE.
The Remarkable Operation Which Has
Jmt Been Performed on Maurice Adlor.
Washington, August 9. Maurice
Adler, who was shot in the neck on the
night of June 18 last; by Frank K. "WaW,
still lives, and to-day an operation was per
formed on him. It is a most remarkable
case. Although his body has been almost
completely paralyzed ever since the shoot
ing and he has been spoken of as the "man
with a live head on a dead body," he has
lingered for more than eight weeks and
seems to be no nearer death now than he
was the day after the shooting, lo-day the
patient was placed under the influence of
chloroform and an incision about three
inches long was made down to the vertebra:
over the course of the wound, which
was found to be entirely healed.
On coming down to the spine it
was found that the spinqus process of the
fourth cerevical vertebra; was fractured,
and had been driven against the spinal
cord, which it was pressing upon, and had
lacerated to the extent of three-fourths of an
inch. The spinous process and. lamina
were removed, and the pressure was thus
taken from off the cord.
It was found that the ball, after striking
the fourth cerevical vertebra; had glanced
off, but in what direction could not be seen.
Its present location is unknown. The
patient bore the operation well, and though
his death has been predicted almost every
day since the shooting, he was in better
condition to withstand the strain than at
any time since the injury. The patient
was much easier after the operation.
HE IS fiOT ELIGIBLE.
Corporal Tanner Not n Candidate for Com
mander of the Grand Army.
"Washington, Angust 9. Members of
the Grand Army of the Bepnblic in-this
city say that even should he wish it, Com
missioner Tanner coula not be elected Commander-in-Chief
of the Grand Army, and
they instance the failure of Major "Warner
to achieve1 election two years ago when the
encampment was held in St. !Louis. Major
Warner was a candidate for Commander-in-Chief,
but was told that as long as he held
political position be was then a member of
Congress from Missouri he could not be
A year ago he was elected Commander-in-Chief
on the pledge that he wonld retire
from Congress. He refused a renomination
and what was regarded as a certainty of re
election to Congress, in pursuance of his
pledge to the Grand Army.

Attorney Collom In Jail In Default of Ball to
the Amount of 8110,000.
Minneapolis, August 9. J. Frank
Collom spent last night in a cell at the
counta jail, and was brought into court by a
Deptrty at 9 o'clock this morning. Although
he tried hard to appear at ease, it was evi
dent that his unconcerned manner was
forced. His hands trembled as he dropped
his hat on a chair and he nervously twisted
his moustache, A fourth complaint was
entered by "W. B. Anderson, containing
seven different counts, charging Collom
with the forgery of notes aggregating
The whole amount of forgeries complained
of tc4ay amounted to $33,000. Bail was
fixed at $10,000 in each case and Collom was
remanded into the custody in default of
$110,000 bail for an examination next Tues
day. A PENSIOKER'S WIMDFALL.
Through n Reopenlnc of HU Case Be Get
812,000 In Cash and 872 a Month.
"Washington, August 9. The Pension
Office granted Bichard "Whiting a pension
of $24 per month on account of nervous
prostration and impairment of the mind.
This allowance was subsequently increased
to $50 per month. At a still later date the
pension was reduced to $3 per mouth,
through an error made by a surgeon who
examined the pensioner.
Upon application the case has been re
opened, and under a decision of Assistant
Secretary Bussey, of the Interior Deport
ment, tbe pensioner has been granted an
allowance of $72 per month, and his pension
dates from the date ot bis discharge in 1865,
aggregating about $12,000.

The Victim of a Chinese Conspiracy.
Portland, Ore., August 9. Shee
Gong, a Chinaman, was hanged here at
10:52 A. M. to-day for the murder of Lee
Gick, a fellow countryman, two years ago.
He faced death without flinching, and made
a long speech, protesting his innocence, and
declaring that his conviction was the result
of a Chinese conspiracy.

nippolyte Haa Not Yet
Attempted to Capture
Washington, August 9. Information
which has reached this city from Hayti,
under date of July 25, says that everything
is quiet at Port-au-Prince and that the de
lay in attempting to capture the city is
giving the inhabitants renewed confidence
and hurting the cause of the Northern par
ty. The near approach of the rainy season
is supposed to be disadvantageous for Hip
polyte, and it is thought that he will have
difficulty in keeping his forces in the field
without large defections. Frequent firing
was kept up, it is said, by the forts on the
northern side of the city, and Hippolyte's
advance forces could be seen from decks of
vessels in the harbor. The Government has
succeeded in getting possession of $200,000,
in $5 bills, of the money belonging to the
National Bank, signed by one of the
directors in Paris. They are indorsed on
the face as being issued on the responsibili
ty of the Government, but it is thought on
the island that this will not lessen the re
sponsibility of the bank.

ADVICE FOR ALL.
Sad and sorrowfully glance into tbe future
many sick persons who suffer pain and who
find an early grave through mistaken treat,
ment. Do not forget that tbe proofs are here
that my celebrated all-German remedies can
not be excelled. Thousands of patients have I
met who said: "I was not a day without medi
cine and grew worse every day." Tbey are cor
rect. Where dangerous operations have been
previously undertaken my remedy has cured in
a short time. My remedies cure, in fact, most
of the chronic diseases where no otber medi
cine gives help. Dally sick persons come to
me and complain that tbey have spent ISO. tlOO.
81,000 among doctors, but were not S cents'
worth better. When these doctors bad received
tbe money tbey left tbe city by moonlight.
Thousands in Pittsburg and vicinity bave been
cured within a year by my wonderful remedies.
Look at the following, a few of those wbo were
cured In as many weeks as they were years sick.
Mr. 'Warner, chronic rheumatism, 2 years.
Mr. H. Conrad, chronic diarrhoea, z years.
Miss Weaver, epilepsy, 8 years.
Mrs. Emmler, eye trouble nearly blind, 30 years.
Mrs. L. Mahone suffered 6 years wltn spinal dla
ease, nervousness and liver trouble, leading to
Mrs. Dickson, asthma, 10 years.
Miss Johnson, dropsy. 6 years.
Mrs. Unnther, cancer. 2years.
Mrs. KJe nmsnn suffered twoyears with terrible
cramps. She is enred and suffers no more.
It the disease is not to be recognized by any
other evidence, then the urine is tbe best means
ot diagnosis; it shows what and where the trouble
Is. As soon as It leaves its normal straw color,
yon aaould not fail to use my celebrated remedies
and be cured from the very root of tbe trouble.

A SENSIBLE COMMUNITY
knowing very well the difference between an actual reduction sale
caused by necessity, as
II anil ILU SALE
for instance, and the various stereotyped wild hurrah and blow and
bluster affairs that are now going the rounds at certain clothing houses
in this city. Why, judging from the silly pretentions and nonsensical
reasons advanced by some of these advertisers they must be laboring
under the impression that Allegheny county is chiefly inhabited by fools
a most erroneous conclusion, however, as the empty stores of these
tricksters readily prove. But to return to this great Building and En
larging Sale. Now, if ever, is the proper time for you to take advantage
of its) .Come in to-day, if possible; take a stroll through the entire store;
stop to inspect the bargains in every department; calculate the big sav
ing you are bound to make on every purchase, and, if you then think
you can afford to ignore this grand opportunity, well and good. We arq
confident, however, that you will hail this wonderful money-saving
chance with delight, and invest all your loose change and spare dollars
in Clothing, Shoes, -Hats, Furnishing Goods, etc
FOR YOUR VACATION.
Of course, you'll take a summer trip. Monster excursions are leav
ing the city every day, and it is but fair to presume tbat you have con
cluded to shake the city dust off your boots for one or more weeks.
Before leaving, however, don't fail to provide yourself with all the nec
essary articles and garments required for comfortable traveling and a
pleasant sojourn at your summer resort Read the following list and see
whether you don't need one or more of the things mentioned:
Our great Building and Enlarging Sale makes it possible for you to
buy one or all of the above articles at about
TTAT.TP REGTJLAE; PBIOBS,
and, if you but come wi thin the next few days, you can take your choice
from as large an assortment as one could wish.
