Markets showed more strength all along
the line than last week. Sales were brisker
and in some lines at advanced rates.
The supply in"drovers hands was below the
average, but heavy receipts for the abattoir
brought the run considerably above last week.
On desirable grades, such as smooth butch
er stock weighing 1,200 to 1,300 pounds, markets
were fully 10c stroncer than they were a week
ago. Buyers from surrounding towns were in
full force, and more cattle of the desirable
grades could have been sold. Homestead and
McKeesport butchers were unable to secure all
that was wanted for their trade. Sales were
reported as follows: Prime heavy Western
beeves, weighing 1,500 to 1,000 pounds, (4 90 to

Supply was lighter and quality lower than
last week. There were very few sheep on the
market that could be called strictly choice.
There was active demand, and pens were early
emptied, with prices ranging much the same
as last week. Tbe few choice wethers on hand
were a shade better. Tbe range for the best

At East Liberty receipts to-day footed up 125
carloads. Export grades were 1520c higher
than last week. W ith a light run of sheep and
lambs at East Liberty markets showed an ad
vance of 15325c over prices of last week. In
general tone and outlook of live stock market
are healthier than they have been for some
weeks past. Prices were bigber in Chicago
last week, and with cool weather and strong
demand for export purposes the tide has evi
dently turned upward for good. A leading
Herr s Inland drover said to-day: "I lost monev
on my deals last week. This week, though, 1
had to pay biglicr prices at Chicago. I obtained
better prices here, and markets were brisk at
the advance. I believe I will be a little ahead,
and fel that the worst is passed for drovers,
so far as this season's trade is concerned."

CmcAOO The wheat market opened active
at an advance over Saturday's closing of c
tbe strength being due to the reduced esti

spring wheat crop by the Washington bureau.
This estimate justifies tbe expectation of a to
tal crop or 489,000,000 to 490.009,000 bushels. Ad
ditional strength.was given to the market by
the bullish early cables, public 'and private.

the greater part of the session tbe market was
quiet. The demand was mainly from local
shorts. The market opened UGH? lower than
Saturday, was easy for a time, but soon became
firmer, advancing H&e, ruled steady, and
closed about the same as Saturday.
In oats trading was fairly active, par
ticularly at tbe opening, and operators, after
offering quite freely at the start, became more
conservative, and the rest of the day they were
only fair. Shorts bought freely, and, after a
slight decline at the opening, a firmer feeling
developed, and prices advanced $c from Inside
figures, closing steady.
Tho feeling in mess pork was somewhat un
settled, and prices ruled Irregular. Opening
sales were made at 10c decline, and a further
reduction of 12Kfill5c was submitted to. Later
more steadiness prevailed, and prices rallied
7K10c, but receded again, closing quiet.
Quite a good business was done in lard.

AN IMPORTANT DEAL
Thirty-four Acres Secured for a Bace
Track and Training Station.
A BOUND MILLION IN HOUSES.
Inside Information Concerning the Flans
of the East End Syndicate.
EASTERN MOKE! SEEKING KTESTMENT
A. real estate deal of some importance was
consummated yesterday. A prominent
horse trader, whe passes much of his time
in Pittsburg, purchased 34 acres between
Shields station and Leetsdale, down the
Fort "Wayne Railroad.'for which he paid
$ 210 an acre. He proposes to enclose it in a
substantial fence, lay ouf a race track, and
put tip suitable buildings for boarding and
training horses. He has several more plants In
different parts ol the country, but will dispose
of them and concentrate his bnsiness here.
The land upon which the Stewart-Booth-Flinn-Magee
syndicate Is building, or about to
build, 200 bouses, is part of tbe old Negley
estate, the venerable mansion Che birthplace
and home of several generations being used
as a boarding house for the workmen. All tbe
houses vill be first-class, and the material
brick, which will be furnished by the com
pany's own works, situated on the back part of
the ground. They have 15 buildings well un
der way, some under roof. Permits for these
were taken out on Saturday, the law In this re
spect appearing to be elastic enough in some
cases, at least, to allow of the taking out a per
mit after the building has been commenced or
even nearly completed.
Five of the 15 houses front on Negley ave
nue and ten on Stanton. Tbe rest of the 200
will be in the immediate vicinity. The policy of
the syndicate is to keep 15 or 20 houses going
all the time. As fast as one set Is completed
another will be commenced. It is the intention
to finish as many as possible this season and
the rest next spring. The entire cost will be
about Sl.oOaOOO. Tbe Hiland Park Railroad,
chartered a few days ago, will pass within a
square of this property, and will leave Negley
avenue one ot tbe handsomest drives of the
The common "cow-catcher" attachment to a
locomotive is about the only article of univer
sal use that was never patented. It was in
vented by D. B. Davies, of Columbus, C still
living and quite aged. He borrowed the idea
from tbe mold board of tbe plow which Is used
to throw the soil to one side, but was so busy
he neglected to patent it until It was too late.
It Is in use to-day as originally invented by Mr.
Davies, without deviation or change from tbe
original plan, and has saved millions of dollars
to railroad companies and probably thousands
of lives, but not a penny to the inventor. Red
lights on trains were adopted on the suggestion
of the late Mrs. Swisshelm. after an accident
In which she had a narrow escape.
Twenty six mortgages did very well for blue
Monday. The largest was for $8,000, and the
next in size for $5,000. A gentleman who does
a large amount of this kind of business re
marked: "Business in mortgages shows some
shrinkage when compared with last month.
While there is considerable-home money avail
able for this purpose, it is not inexhaustible
This is shown in the hardening of rates. A
month or two ago 4 or 5 per cent was com
mon. Now It is almost impossible to get a rate
lower than 5 and tax. 1 understand there is
some Eastern money floating around at 4 and
5, and that it is being placed here and there in
small amounts at those figures. I look for 6
per cent to be the ruling rate when business
opens np In the fall."
Tbe Ohio Inspector of Mines reports the
amount of coal mined in Ohio for 1SS8 at 10,297,
608 tons. This is an increase of more than 600,
000 tons over 1887 and 2,479,800 tons more than
was mined in 1886. In other words, the product
of Ohio coal mines has increased over 30 per
cent in tbe past two years. In view of the ap
pearance of natural gas fuel in many sections
of the State, this is considered a remarkable
showing, and indicates tbe satisfactory quality
of Ohio coal. Ohio ranked second among tbe
coal prodncing States In 1887, but in the past
year Illinois has taken second place and Ohio is
third. Pennsylvania being first. During the
year 52 mines were opened in Ohio, 23 sus
pended operations and 14 were worked out or
abandoned, leaving a net gain for tbe year of 15.
To obtain cool, fresh air and other comforts
deemed indispensable to the summer season, it
Is not necessary to take a long journey from
home to the seaside or mountains. They can
be found almost anywhere in the suburbs. A
prominent real estate broker realized this fact
so fully that he built a cabin in the woods in
the vicinity of Swissvale, where he and his
family have been living for several weeks. He
says it beats the fashionable resorts out of
sight. There is a freedom about such a life

Stock Brokers Come Together, Exchange
Gossip and Go Home.
The stock market yesterday was not particu
larly Interesting from any point of view, busi
ness being restricted to the sale of 30 shares of
Electric In the afternoon. Nothing was done
in the forenoon. There were no material
changes in quotations, except in Switch and
Signal, which scored a handsome advance.
Everything else hung around the old figures,
any deviations therefrom being retrogressive.
Perhaps an exception should be made of La
Norla, but il is in such a peculiar condition, so
handicapped by mystery and manipulation,
that fractional changes go for nothing. Its
friends however, still claim that it will eventu
ally develop into a big thing. It is certainly
cheap at present quotations, If there is any
thing at all In it There was a bid of 3 for
Point Bridge and 15 for Union. "That's as
much or more than they are worth," remarked
J broker. "The preferred stock absorbs every
'hing. leaving nothing for the common and.fn
niy opinion, there never will be anything for
it" Bids and offers were:

WAITING F0K DEVELOPMENTS.
Petroleum Traders Patting- In Their Time
Watching the Cat Jump.
Very little business -was done on the Petro
leum Exchange yesterday. The feeling at the
opening was rather firm in consequence of the
bullish condition's, but outsiders held aloof,
and professionals did not feel vicious enough to
scalp each other. Cash oil was about c
cheaper than the regulars.
The market held above a dollar until a short
time before the close, when it broke a trifle, in
consequence of a bear demonstration In New
York, which ended about as soon as begun.
The short interest here is very small, traders
on that side fearing a pinch at delivery time
wbicb would be easy to bring about, if statis
tics can be depended upon. The feeling at the
close was unsettled, as indicated by "puts"
being in the majority. Saturday's clearings
wereSOCOOO. Features of the market appear
An expert says: "I think tbe bullish senti
ment Is slowly but surely widening, and that It
will bring in new buyers later. Oil shows a
tenacity of staying power about tbe dollar line,
and as tbe decrease In the available stocks
above ground still continues, exceeding the
estimates of consumption previously made, I
look for a gradual advance in tbe price."

place was at Bryant to arrest him, and tbat as
