THE TBEND OF TRADE.
Sweet Potato and Florida
Trusts to Loom Up.

Fine Prospects for Large Produce Held in
WEEK'S WOEE AT THE LIBERTY IAEDS
OFFICE OFPlTTSBURD DISPATCH,
Thursday, August 15, issa. j
Among the newest of the trusts are the
Sweet Potato Trust, of Baltimore, and the
Florida Orange Trust, of Hew York City.
Both have beeu organized within the past
A leading Liberty street commission
merchant said to-day: "The Sweet Potato
Trust has succeeded In sending the Southern
product into our market in better shape and at
"The preliminary meeting for the Florida
Orange Trust has been held and the organiza
tion will be perfected the 1st of September.
Already representatives have been sele cted in
tins and all trade centers. The idea is to dis
tribute the fruit at places where ltjs wanted,
and prevent the gluts which have proved a
bane to orange shippers in jears gone by."
Products of Farm and Gnrden.
Advices from all Pittsburg's natural terri
tory confirm the fact already mentioned in this
column that the wheat, oats, hay and vegetable
crops for 1889 will be the largest gathered for
many J ears. Corn, too, which ban a backward
start, and did not promise well in the early
stages, has been making up for lost time of late
by the aid of seasonable showers, anaprospocts
are immensely improved for the corn crop the
past SO days.
The yield of potatoes this season in Western
Pennsjlvania and Eastern Ohio will break all
former records. Said a peddler from Clinton,
who pays weekly visits to our city, and whose
route embraces a larce part of the Panhandle
territory of West Vircinla: "On my beat farm
firodncts are unusually large, and in some lines
aiger thau I have known in 15 years of ped
dline. Such a large jield of potatoes I have
never known Wheat, oats and bay are far
above the average in quantity. Ay to fruit,
w hile apples will fall below last yeaFs yield, we
will bave an average volume. Peaches and
plumsarc almost a total failure. In 1U) miles
travel this u eck I did not see a dozen plums on
the trees which were loaded down last season.
"Ono of my principal difficulties this season is
to procure enough poultry to meet demands.
It is next to impossible to get anv nearer the
city than Chanters ith any poultry left.
"The demand for country butter has also im
proved very much in the past ten days. In
stead of being a drag, as it was a couple of
weeks ago, it now goes like hot cakes. The
activity in butter has started much sooner than
"Eggs also have taken an upward turn, and
reliable stock sells readily at outside quota
tions." The evidence of abundance in cereal lines is
seen in the large receipts. Since Monday
morning 70 carloads of oats have bten bulle
tined at the Grain Exchange.
Local Live Stock.
The week has developed a healthier tone to
live stock trade, and choice grades of cattle
and sheep are commanding better prices than
for some weeks past. The supply of good,
smooth butcher cattle has not been up to de
mand. Low grade cattle, of which tho propor
tion was unusually large in this week's sup
plies, were off in prico and slow of sale.
The demand for export has been so active of
late at the West that our market here has suf
fered a lack of desirable grades.
Follow ing is tbe-rcport of transactions for the
week at the East Liberty Stockyards:

They Propose to Carry Ont the ProEramme

Chicago, August 15. The Pioneer and
Support Association will hold r, picnic at
Sheffield, Ind., next Sunday for the purpose
of replenishing the innd from which the
widows and orphans of the executed or i m
prisoned Anarchists are supplied. Thecal),
which is published in the Arbeiler Zritunn
inviting attendance at the picnic, reads al-J
most use me utterances bo commonly heard
before the Haymarket bomb put an end to
Anarchist mouthings. Quoting from the
speech made by Robert Reitzel, of Detroit,
on the burial of the Anarchists, it says:
"We will carry out what these men were
striving for. TVe will bring about the prac
tical enforcement of the rights ol man,
which were long ago given on paper.
''Those were the rows which thousands
nnd hundreds ot ihonsandi of men, who
were indignant nt the horrible murder of
November 11, made with profound gravity
of purpose, with gnashing of teeth and
clenched fists. They rowed to fulfill the
legacy of those who had fallen for liberty
No Snap la the Wheat Pit The Drift of

CHICAGO There was a notable absence of
snap in both the cash and speculative branches
of the wheat trade to-day. The general driftof
the news was less bullish, and although early
cables were c dearer for spot wheat the open
ing here was barely steady at the closing range
of yesterday. Business in the pit dragged
heavily all forenoon with fluctuations in prices
so narrow as to attract but little attention. c
covering all the changes up to 12 o'clock. Fair
weather prevailed everywhere on this side and
in England it was reported fine.
It was probably this tact that gave to the
market here an undertone or weakness in the
early dealing, and the further fact that re
ceipts were somewhat above the estimates.
From 78Jc December shrunk to 78Kc. the
market swinging a greater portion of the time
between 7SJ7Sc with the business passing
almost entirely local and nnder an average
volume. The market remained limp and un
interesting up to the last. Near the close De
cember settled to 78c, latest quotations being
TSKc or c below yesterday's close. The buy

perceptibly to-day, and in undesirable houses
the former would not bring any premium over
seller the month.
Corn was fairly active early in the day, but
later ruled quiet. The feeling on the whole
was easier, and the bulk of the trading was at
lower prices. The influences on the market
were much the same as noted for several days
fiast, the operations of a large local bolder bav
ng considerable to do with the market. It
opened at yesterdays dosing prices and was
easy, one or two large houses selling freely.
Prices declined in all J6Hc. but the pur
chasers of the trader above mentioned who took
large quantities at 35c for September sus
tained tho market, but final quotations were
JKe lower than yesterday.
Oats were traded in with less freedom and a
quiet and easier feeling prevailed and prices
averageu a iracuon lower. ,
In pork prices ruled irregular and lower, with
qnlte an activo business reported. Opening
sales were made at 1012(c decline, and prices
fluctuated considerably audi settled back 10

weakened again and the market closed easy.
Quite a good business was transacted in lard.
Early the Veiling was steadied, and prices ruled
slightly higher. Later a weak feeling was de
veloped and prices receded 7K10c Toward
the close the feeling wasSUadler and prices
were slightly improved, but declined again to

A fairly active trade was reported in short

Chicago, August 15. TheXouisville,
New Albany and Chicago Railway Com
pany (Monon route) has made the first
break in rates to the .Milwaukee Grand
Army encampment. As a result of yester
day's meeting in Cincinnati of passenger
agents of Chicago-Ohio river lines, at which
they failed to agree, the Monon this morn
ing gave notice it would make it rate of a
ceut a mile over the whole line to veterans
attending the encampment.
The Kankakee joined hands with the
Monon in the cent-a-mllerate and 'the Pan
handle will probably be forced to meet it.
Grand Army men are jubilant over the an

It is too soon to give
details, but the mere announcement is of
public interest, as showing that there is no
lack of enterprise among Pittsburg capi
The old homestead of the late James P.
Barr, on Fifth avenue, Fourteenth ward,
has just been sold to William Loeffler and
Edwin L. Porter, Esq., for $31,500. The
purchasers will divide the property between
them. It fronts 150 leet on Fifth avenue,
running back 274 feet to Forbes street. The
price is considered very reasonable, and is
less than has been paid for property in the
same vicinity. It is understood that the sale
was conducted by Messrs. Black & Baird.
Another sale reported yesterday was that of
the Beeler property on Wilkins avenue, con
sisting ol a lot 250x300 feet. The price paid
was S20,00a Three or four gentlemen are inter
ested in the transaction, but th('y declined to
let their names be used at present. They
bought for an investment.
It was reported on excellent authority yester
day that a Philadelphia capitalist had sent
$100,000 here within a few days past fr invest
ment in real estate, but neither his name nor
the kind of property he wants could be ascer
tained. It is understood that a Wood street
firm has charge of the busineA. This should
stir up home investors. Pittsbnrg realty should
be owned by Pittsburg peoplfj, who ate more
likely to be Interested in its development than
foreigners. Still, outsiders 'are entirely wel
come, and the fact that they consider Pittsburg
a good place in which to mike Investments is
more beneficial than otherwise.
Concerning the trust stocks. In which a num
ber of Pittsburg speculator are interested, a
broker said yesterday: "They have so far
failed to establish confidence in their staying
qualities, because of the refusal of their pro
moters to furnish Information about them.
They are mysteries, and thoiu'who dabble in
them do so at great risk. It It known that'they
are heavily capitalized, or watered, leaving
their actual value a matter of uncertainty. Ac
cording to a recent statement the capitalization
of these concerns Is about as follows:- Lead
Trust, $83,018,800; Sugar Trust, $19,856,200; Cotton
Oil Trust, $4,185,200; American Cattle Trust,
$13,396,500; Distillers and Cattle Feeders' Trust,
$30,726,603. It requires a larce amount of busi
ness to pay dividends on these Immense sums."
The gentleman added: "I can see no good
reason why Pittsburg people should sncculate.
In foreign securities, ot which they know abso
lutely nothing, when there are hundreds of
reliable properties at home, about which full
information can be obtained at anytime. Some
of them have been watered too much, yet they
represent a certain fixed value, which is more
likely to increase than diminish. If these men
would confine their operations to the Pitts
burg Exchange we would hare a lively market
right along. By doing this they would not only
benefit themselves, nut, by keeping their money
at home, assist in building up all kinds of busi
ness. The Thirty-third street sewer, upon whioh
working is progressing as fast as practicable, is
a big undertaking; but it will be of great bene
fit to the district through which it passes. Be
ginning at Roup station it passes through
Sbadyside, Ben Venue, where it is tunneled
through the hills, and so on down to the Alle
gheny river, where It-will be nine feet In diame
ter. The average diameter Is about six feet.
The sewer will be a common carrier all along
the route. The creek at Roup and Shadyside
will flow through it. A similar sewer Is con
templated at Negley run for the East Liberty
The iron market is in a satisfactory condi
tion to both manufacturers and consumers to
the former because they have all the orders
they can handle, and to the latter because
prices are reasonable, neither high nor low, but
about a fair average. There have been no
changes in quotations since last week, but they
are very firm. At the recent meeting of pipe
men in New York existing discounts were re
affirmed. The proposition to organize a nail
syndicate seems to have fallen through because
of the opposition of two or three mills. All of
the iron mills are very busy, with a good pros
pect of so continuing through the fall and win
ter. The only danger to be feared is an ex
tremely cold winter, which would stop bridge
building and railroad making and repairing.
MORE FIGURES THAN BUSINESS.
Stocks Dull nnd Listless A Broker Who
Another lump In Natural Gas of West Vir
ginia was the main feature of the stock mar
ket yesterday, but the improvement was more
nominal than real, as there were no transactions
in it. It was offered in the afternoon at 76, with
74 bid. Wheeling was firm. The other gassers
were weaker, if anything, as were, also, the
tractions. La Nona was a trifle off, but it gave
rise to some interest and a little amusement.
A few bnndles bf it were tossed about, shuttle
cock fashion, between Mr. Bailey and Mr
Fink, selling and reselling to each other to save
'Ob, that's wash," remarked a broker. "No
you are wrong there,;' chimed m another
"Mr. Fink never washes." This brought down
the house. After this episode, 200 shares of the
stuff found a buyer aU. The only other sale
was 17 shares of Philadelphia Oas at 37K. The
rest of the list was as feature! ess as a profes
sional politician. Captain Barbour's afternoon
effort was rewarded with a goose egg, within
which was represented a fowl in an advanced
stage of decomposition. Bids and offers were:

Petroleum Shows u. Disposition to Regain
the Dollar Line.
Except for a little while in the forenoon, the
petroleum market was dull and uninteresting
yesterday. There were several long spells of
waiting for something to turnup. Just after
the opening there was a spurt of activity, dur
ing the existence of which most of the trading
was done, and the best nures of the day made.
Pittsburg was a moderate buyer, sustaining
the market The day was rather favorable to
the bulls. The close was steady at cent bet
ter than the opening.
There was no change in refined, and no par
ticular disposition to hammer the market. The
dollar line was not touched, but the undercur
rent was in that direction. Very little was
dene in cash oil. It was a fraction below the
regular. Wednesday's clearings were 1,376,000
barrels. Salient features of the market follow.

Little Progress In the Attempt to Purchase
the Cherokee Strip.
- Little Bock, August- 15. Specials
from Indian Territory say that the Cherokee
Commission is making little progress in
negotiating with the Cherokees for the pur
chase of the Cherokee strip. Mr. "Wilson
and Mr. Pairchlld, of the commission, will
possibly set out to-day for the agency of the
Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians to begin
negotiations with those tribes for the land
claimed by them. The Cherokees repudiate
this claim, and the action of the Commis
sioners is considered impolitic. Commis
sioner Wilson believes that the Cherokees
will ultimately sell the strip to the United
States, and that the feeling in favor of such
a sale is daily gaining ground.

The marked featnre of trade the past day or
two Is the great activity of butter. A leading
dealer reports that he is unable to fill orders.
A year ago at this time creamery butter was
being stored in large quantity. At present this
is impossible as there is good demand for all
that comes to market. In fruit lines peaches
are the only article that seems to be over
abundant. Potatoes and apples are not so
plentiful as they were a week or two ago.
Watermelons are firm. Weather Is not warm
enough for active fruit trade. Eggs are steady
and unchanged. Tho same is true of cheese.

A Member of the Barnes Safe sad Lack

tion Failed to Brine It.
"William J.' Barnes yesterday entered suit
against Thomas Barnes for 30,635.94, the

Barnes Safe and Lock Company. The two
had comprised the company, and on July
16, 1887, it is stated, the partnership was
dissolved by William J. Barnes withdraw
ing. His interest in the business was one
fourth, Thomas Barnes holding the other
three-fourths. It was agreed that Thomas
Barnes should purchase the other's share,
but an agreement could not be reached as to
the value of the business.
It was decided to leave the matter ot val
uation to three arbitrators, their decision to
be final. A. F. Keating, Timothy O'Learv

following was the result of their appraise
ment: Tools, machinery, stock, etc., of the
company, 535,810 67; outstanding accounts
less indebtedness, $33,523 39; fcood will of
me nrm, 44s,iwu; profits on orders in hand,
$10,209 70. The plaintiff's: share of this
was $26,885 94.
This amount, it was claimed, was to have
been paid by Thomas Barnes within 90
days. Though repeatedly asked to do so,
he has refused, and the money is still due.
In addition he owes bis share, three
fourths, of the fees of the arbitrators, $1,000
each, and three-fourths of $2,000, salary due
the bookkeeper, C. P. Duff, making his al
leged indebtedness in all $30,635 94.
