California Fruits of Delicious Flavor
in Full Supply.
COKN AND WATERMELONS FIRMER.
Prairie Chickens and Eeed Birds Added to

Office or rrrrsBUBO Dispatch,
FBIDAY. August 23,1889. J
, In the general line of market basket ma
terials tbere are few changes from last Sat
urday's report. The absence of many of the
best customers at watering places is still
felt by venders of fruits and vegetables.
'While the good things of farm and garden
are at their best, multitudes are enjoying them
at iioints away from home. The fancy restaur
ant trade is at its lowest this month. The
ho.-ne coining is, however, near at hand and
dealers all have the faith and assurance of a
first-class fall trade. California crapes, plums
and pears of the most delicious flavor abound
on the stalls. Watermelons, cantaloups and
Jersey sweet potatoes -were never better than
those offered the past week. Peaches of every
variety are also to be had at reasonable prices.
If Pittsburg had to depend on borne raised
fruits this season there -would be a great dearth
in this line. California, Georgia, Delaware and
Southern Ohio have been more highly favored
In fruit lines than our home growers. Roast
ing cars and beans are scarce and higher in a
jobbing way, but not sufficient to change retail
The butter situation is practically unchanged.
The same is true of poultry. Prairie chickens
and reed birds have put in their first appear
ance since the middle of August. Eggs in job
lots are 2c per dozen higher than they were
At the fish stalls it was reported that stock
was scarce and firm. Eastern fish of all kinds
and lake salmon are not in supply sufficient for
demand. While prices are advanced at sources
of supply, tbere is practically no change hero.
Dealers here report that for some kinds of fish
Uioy do not get their own.
In general, retail venders of market basket
filling report dull trade, but have largo hopes
that a better day is about to dawn.
Following are the latest prices, as furnished
by leading dealers in the line of choice ma
terials for Sunday's dinner table:
The best cats of tenderloni steak range
from 20 to 25c, with last figure for very

' The Drvgoodi Market.
New York. August 23. The demand for
drygoodsat first hands showed improvement
tOKiay. the continued activity in thejobbtnr
trade being felt very decidedly, and the im
pression was that from now on business -will be
of steady growth. There was a better feeling
and a strong undertone to fabrics. The market
-was unchanged and there were no special inci
dents worthy of note. Jobbers were doing a
good business in all departments, with very
little calling of prices. Unsaleable ginghams
occasionally furnished material for special at
tractions in prices, but values are maintained
with, gooa aeat ox steadiness.
MAEKETS JY WIRE.
Considerable Activity in the Wheat Pit, bnt
Price Lack Staying Qualities Cables
Unfavorable to Holders Longs
Cnlond nnd Sherls Cover.
Chicago Wheat was more active to-day,
but it was at weak and somewhat lower prices.
While the market appeared to be inclined to
broaden a little it was also predisposed to bear
ishness from the very opening, and the tendency
of speculative values was downward through
out the session. Bear news predominated, and
tho weather everywhere was again of a char
acter to encourage short selling. Cables, both
public and private, were unfavorable for hold
ers. In the Northwest the movement out of
farmers' hands continues disappointingly light,
but this circumstance does not appear to
weaken the conndence of the shorts as yet,
since the crop Is secured and will have to move
sooner or later.
There was quite large and general liquida
tion to-day, longs unloading and shorts cover
ing. Ono prominent local operator was a
steady and large buyer all day and his pur
chases checked tbe decline more than once
when December got down to 77c but the
market finally got away from him, and during
tbe last hour settled to TTc The close was
steady at 77c for December, or Jc under yes
terday's latest bids. Cash, August and de
ferred futures were correspondinglylower, and
trading in cash -was only moderately active at
the December line.
A large speculative business was transacted
In corn earlv to-day, and the feeling was weak
and prices" lower. Later in the session the
market became quite steady on a decline. The
influences on the market were the same as
noted for several days past, namely, the large
movement in this direction and favorable
weather. The volume of business was quite
heavy. Longs were selling and shorts covering.
Tbere was considerable pressure to sell. May
offerings being very heavy, and prices reached
the lowest point so far on the new crop. Do
mestic markets were off iiKs and cables dull
and weak. To-day's arrivals were abont as
anticipated, and estimates for tbe market show
considerable increase, being placed at 1,000
cars. Cash property met -with a fair demand,
with liberal offerings, and prices averaged
JsJc lower than yesterday.
Trading in oats was more free. The near de
liveries remained more steady, as receipts
were lighter than expected,- being 290 cars.
Shorts were disposed to cover, and absorbed
the offerings with sufficient rapidity to support
prices for August and September. JIaywas
offered freely and prices declined He There
was considerable changing of contracts from
September to Slay, ana same selling of May
and buying of September.
In bog products quite an active speculative
trade was reported. Offerings were liberal, de
mand Only fair, and the feeling unsettled and
weak. Receipts of hoes were quite large and
prices declined decidedly. Trading was largely
In contracts for short account and Jannary de
livery. At tbe declining scale purchases were
fair, but not sufficient to improve prices to any
great extent. Pork went 17J20c lower, lard

Good Opening For a First-ClaBS Hotel
in Wilkinsburg Borough.
NATURAL GAS COMPANIES SCORED.
Their Weakness Attributed to Causes Which
Should he Eemedied.
PITTSBURG A CEEDIT0E AMOKS CITIES
There is a good opening for a hotel at
"Wilkinsburg. Theboroushis growing so
rapidly that existing accommodations are
wholly inadequate to the demand. There
are a number of good sites for a hotel, any
of which could be purchased for a reason
able price. A first class hotel, with pleas
ant surroundings, would be largely patron
ized in the summer season, and the perma
nent and transient custom would make it
profitable in tbe winter.
A broker, wbo is a conspicuous figure on
'Change, in conversation yesterday evening,
had a crow to pick with tbe Philadelphia and
Chartiers Gas companies. He said: "Phila
delphia going a begging at 36K and 87. I don't
understand it. It ought to be one of the strong

stead. Is one of tbe dullest and weakest. I am
aware that the company will soon lose some of
Soutbside mill custom, but as that has never
been regarded as valuable, its withdrawal
should make no particular difference. Tbe
loss ought to be more than made good by ex
tensions to private bouses, where better rates
are paid. I think the trouble lies in misman
agement, or rather a desire to throw tbe com
pany into the hands of the ring, to do as they
please squeez3 the little fishes, for Instance.
The trust scheme is proof of this to my mind.

According to reports tbe old Dunkard to.Vn-
ship oil field in Greene county is experiencing
a revival that is fast developing intoaflrst
class boom. Thl3 territory was first drilled in
1861 and operations lasted there until 1881. 1 All
that time no casing was used by drillers aid as
a consequence a number of wells which bade
fair to be good producers were mined by fire
clay "cave-ins." Since that time until recently
the territory has been dead, bat now a number
of drillers are at work putting down wells in
the vicinity of the old holes. The Waynesburg
.Company is drilling two, the Kanawha Oil
Company and Tanner A Turner three more,
while the Willow Grove Oil Company and
Guffey, Griffith & Domiclc are putting down
five wells. There are already five producing
wells in that locality, with a total production of
160 barrels a day.
An effort is being made to save tbe shade
trees on Wallace street, Wilkinsburg, which
will. It Is to be hoped, prove successful. A few
days ago an article was printed in this depart
ment of The Dispatck showing how a num
ber of trees had been successfully transplanted
at Portland, Me. The article attracted the at
tention of members of the Wilkinsburg Coun
cil, and was discussed at the meeting of that
body Thursday evening. The plan of removing
trees which was therein described was consid
ered feasible. No action was taken, but the
feeling was strongly In favor of saving the
Mr. Stewart, a member of Council, remarked
yesterday: "We have had several offers for re
moving and saving the shade trees on Wallace
street, one as low as $20 a tree. This is so rea
sonable that it will probably be accepted." It
may be added that If the question of saving or
destroying the treeslwere submitted to a vote
of the citizens of the borongh, the almost
unanimous voice would be, "Save them."
A gentleman who frequents Fourth avenue
and handles large amounts of money, said yes
terday evening: "The opinions of local bankers
on tbe money question, which appeared In The
Dispatch, struck the right key. There may
be a little flurry in the East, but Pittsburg and
the West will scarcely feel it. It sbonld be re ,
membered that Pittsburg is one of the few
creditor cities in the country. This brings
money here Instead of sending it away, and is
tbe reason why we suffered so little in 1873 and
former panics. A man who is not in debt and
has plenty of cash in bis pockets has nothing
to fear from the ups and downs of the money
market. Pittsburg is in that happy condition.
A letter from the Mexican capital speaks of
faulty packing as the great drawback In seek
ing to introduce merchandise from the United
States. Tbe writer says goods "are put up In
too large and too heavy packages, and when
we come to pay duty on tbe goods themselves
we find that we pay according to" the gross
weight of the packages, and tbat very often
the weight of the box Is four or five times
more than that of the goods contained in

QUIET AND JIAST.
Me Change In tbe Conditions oi tbe Local
Tbe local money market was quiet and easy
yesterday. The conditions were unchanged.
A few borrowers were accommodated at the
regular rates, 6fl per cent, according to tbe
'collateral. Only gilt-edged paper was taken at
tbe former rate.' Depositing made a very good
showing. Checking was fair, but not large.
Exchange and currency were close together.
Small notes were In ample supply. The feeling
was bounding and hopeful. A good seasonable
business was reflected in the Clearing House
report,the exchanges being 41,738,923 92 and the
balances S38L179 OS. ......
In an article on "The.Lowerlng of the Inter
est Kate," the Iron Age says: "The rapid
accumulation of wealth in this country is
having far-reaching Influences and lies at the
bottom of much of the dissatisfaction which
business men express when the question of
profits comes up. Beginning with the safest
securities, like Government bonds and some
municipal obligations. Interest has been scaled
down until the very best do not net much more'
than 2 per cent. The same has been going on
in railroad securities. J'oor'i Manual tersely
puts the matter in the following shape: 'But
tbe days of large profits appear to have passed.
A railroad which in the f utnre can pay regular
dividends of 6 per cent per annum will be re
garded In much the same light as those which
formerly paid 9 and 10 per cent for years with
"These facts are thoroughly appreciated
generally, but their consequences in other di
rections do not appear to be well understood.
Putting It bluntly, the lowering of tho Interest
rate, permanent as It seems to be. Involves a
sharp lowering of profits to manufacturers and
merchants. If in any branch the returns are
nop as great as ten years ago would have been
thought reasonable, or even if that impression
gets abroad, there is a rush Into the business,
which drags profits down, sometimes consider
ably below tbe normal level. Probably every
business man can recall instances within his
observation, if, indeed, he has .not bad them
comt within his own experience."

THE MONEY FLUBBY
Has Little Weight In Wall Street Effect of
Jndge Cooley's Action A Cat In tbe
West Granger Ualded Gains
and Losses AboutEven.
IINew Yobe, August 23. There was a cessa
tion In tbe excitement In the stock market
to-day, and the trading was again dull and tbe
fluctuations small and generally Insignificant,
though tbe tone of the dealings was feverish
and unsettled throughout tbe day. The action
of Judge Cooley became known this morning,
and was accepted as an explanation of the
heavy sales of yesterday, and though the
traders were still bearishly inclined and en
deavored to push theadvantagealreadygalned,
they met with little encouragement from out
side sources, while some buying orders from the
foreigners dampened their ardor In the early
dealings. The money question had little, if
any, weight to-day, though tho rates on call
were held at from 5 to e per cent throughout.
There was, however, no stringency, and all
were easily accommodated.
The news of the cut by the Chicago, St Panl
and Kansas City road was tbe occasion of an
other attack upon the Grangers in tho after
noon, but this was followea by tbe announce
ment that Jndge Cooley was In conference with
the officials of that road and the Chicago, Bur
lington and Northern, which arrested tbe de
cline, and prices then gravitated upward again.
The opening of the market was made at slight
ly lower figures than last evening as a rule, and
there was some selling for a decline on the part
of tho room traders, but foreign buying orders
were encountered, and considerable taking of
profits by the sellers of yesterday helped to
check tho downward tendency, except In Cleve
land, Colnmbus, Cincinnati and St. Louis pre
ferred, which scored a drop of 1 per cent in
tbe first hour.
The market became dull but remained 'fe
verish and unsettled with a general upward
tendency until the afternoon drive at the
Grangers, when the rest of the list sympathized
to a limited extent. St. Paul and Missouri
Pacific were the chief sufferers until the Lack
awanna made a sudden drop of per cent to
14t. This decline, however, was checked be
fore delivery hour and tbe entire list rallied,
while the trading was marked by a sudden rise
of 4 per cent in Pullman to 18a The market de
veloped no further features and finally closed
dull and steady. The only marked difference
from last night's figures among the active list
was a decline of lin Chicago and East Illinois
at 43, the others being for small fractions only
and about equally divided between gains and
The railroad bond market again dropped
back into the most extreme dullness, the sales
of all Issues aggregating only $624,000. The
market was generally steady, but a few im
portant changes were recorded. Pacific 4's lost
2. at 72; Northwestern consols 2. at 147, and
Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe os 2, at 65.

Developments nnd Prospects In Various Parts
of Ibe Stnte.
Mr. W. Mandel, of Galveston, Tex., who was
recently sent to New York City to secure capi
tal for tbe development of oil territory, thus
talks of oleaginous prospects In the Lone Star
State: "Op to the present time oil has been
found in various sections of East and West
Texas. Geologists are of the belief that the
oil fields found In Western Texas are a con
tinuation of tbe wells which abound in old
Mexico, and which have been pronounced by
the highest authorities (to be of superior
illuminating quality. In the Western Texas
fields the oil is not f onnd in pockets, but rises
up to tbe surface continually, and the presence
of gas Is also frequently manifested. Numerous
organizations have already been formed with a
view of opening the Texas oil fields. Including
the Petroleum Prospecting Company, of New
Orleans, tbe New Orleans Lubricating Com-
Sany and tbe Pearce Petroleum Company, in
"Owing to the long distance from the Penn
sylvania and Colorado fields, Texan operators
are encouraged with the hope that their 8tate
will eventually be in a position to produce oil
in large quantities, both for refining and lubri
cating purposes. The Crystal Ice Works, of
San Antonio, recently struck a gas well while
boring for water, and at Piedras Pintas Bancb,
in Duval county, oil has been found in paying
3uantities. In McClelland county oil has been
iscovered while boring for stock water at a
depth of 240 feet. The developments In Texas
thus far have been frequent and at compara
tively slight depths. Oil has been f onnd In one
section of Eastern Texas at a depth of only 100
feet, from which 160 barrels per day have been
taken. In Western Texas generally the fluid Is
found at much greater depth."

MRS. DR. CROSSLEY.
Little Maggie Hayden, only 5 years old, wbo
lives on Webster avenne, corner Klrkpatrlclc

as to greatly alarm her parents and friends.
She had a stuffed np condition In her bead and
throat so tbat at times it was difficult for her
to breathe She was restless nights, and tbe
dry, rasping cough was very severe. She had a
hollow look in her eyes and emaciated appear
ance, and she seemed to have a cold all the
time Her parents took her to the Catarrh and
Dyspepsia Institute, at 323 Penn avenue, and
after consulting with Mrs. Dr. Crossley and her
associate physicians, she began treatment and
became entirely cured in two months. Her

women. If they can cure you they will frankly
tell you. If theycannot they will as frankly
tell you that. The crowns of patients why
