PLOEAL TRADE AT ITS LOWEST EBB
Office orPirraBUEO Dispatch, 1
- FRIDAY, August 16, 1889. J
Id the line of fruit and vegetables retail
dealers report quiet trade and stuff plenty.
Manv of the best customers are from home
recreating, and weather has been too cool
for active trade, especially in fruit lines.
Peaches from Delaware are in full sup
ply. Jersey sweet potatoes and Georgia
grapes are to the front for the first time this
season within a few days. Snperb Jersey
watermelons weighing GO to 60 pounds are on
the market stalls.
The berry season has come to an end,
mountain huckleberries being about all that
remains in this line. Corn and beans are un
usually scarce for August.
At the fish stalls a great scarcity of stock is
reported. The supply of salmon and white fish
Is not one-fourth the demand. Storms on the
coast hare prevented the usual catch pf wblte
fish for tbe week past, and dealers hero are un
able to meet demands. In tbe East prices bave
been advanced, but here there has been no
change. A leading dealer said to-day: "We are
not getting our own ont of Eastern flsb for a
few da) s past owing to scarcity and higher
prices at sources of supply."
Herring are In fair supply. Tbe restaurant
and hotel fish trade holds up better than usual
for tbe month of August. The chief drop has
been in retail demand.
In two weeks more tbe oyster season will
OpeD, but fish from the Ohio lakes are not due
until the 20th of September, being shut ont by
stringent Ohio laws.
In the line of butter, eegs and poultry there
bas been an upward movement the past week.
Creamery and choice country butter are from
2 to 3c higher in a jobbing way than they were
a week ago. Pasturage was never better at
ibis time of tbe ) ear, but for some unknown
reason butter bas arisen from a condition of
unwonted sluggishness to nnusual activity.
Florists report trade at its quietest. The few
cut flowers tbat go to fill orders at watering

Wheat Weak at the Opening, but Works

Bullish Cables Oats Feature

Chicago The wheat market was character
ized by fair activity to-day. and during
tbo last bait of the session quite a large
volnme of business was. transacted. It was
chiefly local, however, and of the. customary
scalping sort witnessed for (Some time past.
Early cables reported American wheat as
tending down, which Bet the price i lower
here, and for an hour or so after the opening
the undertone was one of weakness.
The dry, clear weather in the West with indi
cations of higher temperature -and larger re
ceipts and better grading.of the same man
expected (SI per cent contract) also helped to
depress the early market By slow degrees
prices began to stiffen, and as the session ad
vanced tbey worked up by eighths, until a gain
was made over yesterdayjs closing of ilc
A prominent local operator purchased freely
of both September and December, but un
loaded considerable ot tbe latter on the crowd
at Hc profit to himself without perceptibly
weakening the market. ,
Toward the close tbe temper became quite
bullish, as private cables noted an advance In
spot wheat at Liverpool Df Id., and the public
ones qnoted future's at a little higher. Decem
ber moved up to 78c, and at the close was
'quoted at 78c,anet gain for the day of c
September made a gain of Ic. and seller tne
month of Kc Guessing on the next visible
supplv report is for an increase of between 500,
000 and 760,000 bushels. , .
A moderate degree of activity was manifested
in corn, and the feeling developed was steady.
The influences on tbe market were largely local,
the operations of a large-holder wbo purchased
considerable August and September having a
strengthening Influence The market opened
at yesterday's closing prices, was easy for a
time, but soon became firmer and advanced
C eased off a little and closed about the same
as on yesterday.
Oats were without feature.
Rather an active business was transacted in
mess pork at Irregular prices. Early sales were
made at 57Kc advance, but a weaker feeling
was developed, and prices receded 1517c
Toward tbe close the market was stronger
again and prices rallied 1215c, but receded
again 67c and closed steady.
Tbe market for lard attracted less attention,
and trading was lighter. The feeling was
stronger and prices ruled 57Kc higher, and
extreme figures were folly supported.
The market for short ribs ruled steadier, with
only a fair business transacted. Prices ruled
fully 2K5c higher and closed steady.

BIGGEST THING ODT.
More Light on the Project for Build
ing Fire Hundred Houses.
HOW AND WHERE IT WILL BE DONE.
Contracts Being Drawn Up and Other Pre
liminary Arrangements Made.
IMPORTANT EXPANSION AT ALT00NA
It was mentioned in The Dispatch yes
terday that negotiations were on foot which
might result in the building of 500 houses
on a new plan of lota just opened. Fuller
information was obtained yesterday evening
in regard to this great enterprise, which
justifies the statement that It is a go. The
ground is at no great distance from the
Fifth avenue market house and is within
pistol-shot of the cable cars.
It recently passed into the possession of
two or three well-known gentlemen, who
appreciated its central location and the
rapid growth of that part of the city. Upon
this ground the purchasers contemplated
the erection of at least 600 houses to satisfy
a long-felt want for modern low-priced
apartments. The houses will be built so
that they can be rented in suites of from
three to eight rooms, each suit having all
tbe modern conveniences. They will be of
brick, with stone trimmings, and three stones
In the improvement of tbe ground the Cleve
land idea will be followed to seme extent.
Streets and pavements will be wide, with
small parks between tbe streets and sidewalks,
containing grass, shrubbery and trees. It Is
the Intention of the promoters of the enter
prise to make this place one of the finest resi
dence sections of tbe city. Contracts for the
buildings are being drawn up.
It has been stated tbat the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company contemplated a large In
crease of Its works at Altoona. According to
reliable information this will include boiler,
machine and blacksmith shops, boiler houses,
electric and hydraulic bouses, office and store
house, paint shop and paint storehouses. The
works will be large enough to employ be
tween 600 and 1,000 men, and the different
shops will be so arranged that at any time they
can be enlarged. These new works are to be
used only for the making ot locomotives, and
all the repairing will bo done at the old shops.
The capacity ot tbe new works at first will be
150 locomotives per year, and will be capable
of being extended to 600.
It Is also contemplated to erect another and
larger foundry. All flanging, sheanng ma
chines, hydraulic presses and cranes for lifting
will be of the latest designs, and where steam
is cow used hydraulic presses will be the mo
tive power. These buildings will bo only one
story high, except the machine shop and the
office and storehouse, which will be two-stories.
Tbe ground will be about 2,200 feet by 780 feet.
An offices of tbe Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany states that tbe company intended to
build a number of first-class locomotives es
pecially of a new design. An order for 17 loco
motives of class "P" pattern bas been received.
The boilers will be of 7-15-lnch steel plates,
which is larger than any ever before used. The
steam pressure will be 160 pounds to the square
inch, and If necessary it can be Increased to 18a
These new locomotives are for the United
Railroads of New Jersey, but It is presumed a
number of them will be used on the Atlantic
The mortgage business has been rather slack
this week, both in the number placed and the
amount of money represented. Still, the total
makes a very good showing for the time of
year when many of the capitalists are away
from the city. Only 17 were officially noted
yesterday, the most Important being one for
S1E0.000. placed with the Fidelity Title and
Trust Company, as trustee, by the Second Ave
nue Passenger Railway Company, as security
for bonds of an equal amount, the money to
be used in completing the road. The others
ranged in amounts from (400 to $3,000.
The Standard Oil Company has not given up
tbe idea of refining Lima OIL Through Ritchie
Mitchell the company bas been hiring boiler
makers, riveters, still builders, etc, in Titus
villeand vicinity the past few days. Several
bundred are wanted and workmen are scarce
These men are sent to Fielding, Ind., 50 miles
from Chicago, to begin the construction of a
'mammoth refinery, where several new proces
ses will be tried. In tbe mean time the mon
opoly will keep an eye on the exchanges so as
not to allow the stuff to get away from them.

A Lively Oil Market With a Small Volume
There was a dnll opening of the oil market
yesterday, and up to about 1 o'clock things
were as quiet as a church mouse. From that
time till the close, however, there was a lively
movement and considerable excitement,
changes being wide and frequent. A broker
said it was tbe most sensitive 'market be bad
ever seen.. An offer to buy a 2,000 barrel lot
put It up K a cent, and so It went for an hour
or two. Later on there was a break, caused by
selling In OH City, followed by a quick recov
ery. The market closed strong at almost tbe
highest point of the day. The fluctuations
wero too much on the lightning order to be
available to the scalpers. Trading was light.

New Yobk. August 16. The stock market
was a little more active to-day. especially in
tbe first and last hours, but between those
hours the dullness was equal to anything of
late. The bears seemed to have exhausted
themselves In a sharp drive at Atchison at tbe
opening, and after that time the market
showed strength in all its departments, though,
except In a few of the leading specialties, the
movements were on the same limited scale as
during the past week. It was noticed that the
bull loaders gave more support to their favorite
than yesterday, but there was lso some buying
for tbe foreigners, and a better attendance
upon the street indicated tbat more interest
was taken in the market.
Tbe Chicago speculators bought Chicago Gas
and took some of the Grangers, which were
more active and stronger. The features of the
day, however, wero tbe Cleveland, Col nm but,
Cincinnati and St. Louis common and Wabash
preferred, the former making a rapid rise of 2
Kercent. Atchison regained all of its early
ss, and like tbe remainder of the list closed
finally at Its highest point. The opening was
q,ulte irregular and generally only slight frac
tions different from last evening's closing
prices, with the declines somewhat tbe more
numerous, tbe only important changes being
the decline of c in Atchison and the advance
of Kc in Kansas and Texas.
Improvement began immediately, however,
and Atchison, taking the lead, rose 1 per cent,
followed by Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati
and St. Louis and Rock Island, while the up
ward movement spread to tbe eutire list,
though K per cent was the limit of the gains
made. Chicago Gas became a favorite toward
noon and crossed 6G. but the rest of tbe list be
came extremely dull and so remained until the
last hoar without feature or perceptible move
ment in either direction. Wabash preferred
then led tbe upward movement, and more ani
mation was shown all over the list. Tbe mar
ket finally closed dall.-but firm to strong, and
at the best prices ot the day.
Railroad bonds were still duller than usual
of late, the sales reaching only $693,000. Posi
tive stagnation marked tbe limited dealings
throughout the day, thetugh a few of the inact
ive bonds showed some wide fluctuations from
tbe last previous sales. Illinois Central 4s of
1951 rose 2. Grand Rapids and .Indianapolis
genera 5s lost 2, at 93; St. Louis and Cairo is,
2K, at 76X, and Toledo, Ann Arhor and Grand
