Fire Brick Booming Manufactarers

OFFICE OF RlTTSBtntO DISPATCH, I
Tuesday. August 27. loS9.
Tbe supply of fire brick of higher grades
has not been up to demand. The new fur
naces in process ot erection at the Edgar
Thomson Steel "Works Trill require upward
of 3,000,000 fire brick and orders are already
ont for this amount. The Pittsburg firm
with whom these orders were placed has
within a tew days Riven notice ot their inability
to meet orders. This firm has now on its books
orders for 9.000.000 brick to be delivered in eight
months and their capacity is only 1,000,000 pr
month. It not a single order comes in tor a
year to come this fire brick firm will hare about
all it can do to meet orders already booked.
Tbe wants of tbe Braddnck steel works will
call for aboat all the fire bricks which our
largest concern will be able to furnish fur the
balance of this year.
A representative of another firm said to-day:
"We hare never had a more lively trade than
we are having now. The demand lor fire brick
is first class. Competition is sharp and margins
ot profit are extremely closs. bat goods are
moving out freely. We do a great deal ot bus
iness lor a very little money, but such is tbe
drift of trade in all lines these days."
It appears tn be with tradesmen in all lines
that only the fittest are to survive in this era
of low prices and narrow margins. Woe unto
the merchant or manufacturer these days who
bas not a comfortable bank account to enable
him to take advantage of the low prices which
prevail in all departments ot industry.
Cerenls and Live block In Europe.
Mr. Latimer, an Allegheny merchant, who re
turned yesterday from a tour through Great
Britain, France and Germany, and gave special
attention to Erin, from which he sprang, reports
as follows concerning the cereal and live stock
situation in the Old World: "Crops all through
Ireland are unusually good this season. The
yield of flax, hay and potatoes has been seldom
better in quantity and quality. Tbe crop of
oats, wnicn in ireiana is caiiea corn, is large
and of the very best quality, better than any
thine produced in this country. The oats of
Scotland and Erin furnish material for bone,
muscle ana brain building, which the Ameri
can article, in its best forms, fails to reach.
The cereal crops of Scotland show up unusually
well this season, owing to seasonable rains.
As yon go southward and eastward, in
European lands, nature does not seem to
have been as favorable to the agriculturist as
in the North aud West. The earth's increase
lessens as you travel eastward in Europe.
Along tbe Western coast, and for a couple of
hundred miles toward the rising sun, nature
appears to have been verj bountiful this sea
son, and cereal crops are above the average in
tbat belt. Eastern Germany and Russia will
tall far below the average in yield this season.
In Ireland cattle dealers are having a harvest
this year. England and France receive large
supplies of beeves from Parnell's country.
There has been no drop cf prices in the old
country such as there bas been on this side.
Stock raisers on the Western coast of Ireland
have found their trade unusually profitable
this season. I found, however, that the quality
of sheep was mnch better in the midland coun
ties of England than in Scotland or Ireland.
The Soutbdowns in central and Southern Eng
land excelled anything in this line I have ever
seen. The Scotch and Irish sheep may have
been all right for wool but England leads both
countries in tbe quality ot its mutton."
The interview with Mr. Latimer developed
this fact concerning live stock operations in the
mother country, that sales there a-e made by
lump an (jfnot by weight. The buyerof a bunch of
Irish cattle views the "prospect o'er" and then
makes an offer of so much per head. It seems
strange to an American that potatoes, peaches
and apples should be sold by weight, and steers,
sheep and calves by tbe head, but such is tbe
custom In tbe Fatherland. Tbe cattle trade in
England has experienced no such depression
the past year as has been encountered on this
side of tbe pond. Prime beeves are fully 2c
per pound loner at Chicago than a year ago.
In Liverpool tbe decline has been slight, and
the result has been that cattle raisers in Ire
land and exporters on this side have been reap-
u uui uart cbi lur a jear past.

Tbe Black Property in Allegheny
City Purchased by Two Ladies.
FACTS CONCERNING REAL ESTATE.
Fancy Price Paid for Land bj One of Pitts
bnrg's Merchant Princes.
THE CRI OF HARD TIMES OUT OF PLACE
It was learned incidentir yesterday that
tbe purchasers of the Black property, on
"Western avenue, Allegheny City, sold a
few days ago by Henry A. Weaver & Co.,
for 90,000, were Airs. Dr. Hostetter and
Mrs. ru Puy, their object being two-fold
as an investment, and to keep it from fall
ing into the hands of persons who would
subdivide it for several buildings. All
the houses in the vicinity are surrounded
by extensive grounds, and It is desired to main
tain the character of the locality in this respect.
Real estate, while quiet on the surface, is
considerably agitated below which means
there is more going on than meets the eye of
the pnblic For instance. Black & Baird have
made 12 sales since tbe 21st, and are closing up
62 more. The largest of the completed trans
actions was for $3,000. The largest of those
pending Involves $100,000. Mr. Glomnger, of
the above firm, said: "Bnsiness is splendid for
August. There is a good inquiry for every
thing except business property, which has
quieted down. Tbe prospect for brisk times,
beginninc about the middle of next month, is
the best I have ever known."
There is no good reason why there should be
a constant cry of bard times. It is conceded on
every hand that there will be considerably more
than an average crop of nearly all kinds of agri
cultural products throughout the country. The
wheat'and corn crops of tbe West are thought
to be so far advanced as to secure their safety,
while the cotton crop in the South, promises a
large yield. Under these conditions, says the
Age of Steel, there is no reason to doubt tbat
the fall trade will be entirely satisfactory.
Some"complalnt, however, is made ot low'
prices, but it must be remembered that the pur
chasing power ot tl at the present time is much
greater than it was a few years ago, and If the
agriculturist is obliged to sell his products at a
less figure than formerly, bis supplies may be
purchased for enough less in most cases to
make up tbe difference. These things must and
will regulate themselves according to the laws
of snpply and demand, and in time must equal
ize all things.
The highest price ever realized for Pittsburg
suburban real estate, so far as known, was a
short time ago paid by Mr. T. C. Jenkins for a
lot on Ellsworth avenue, Sbadyslde. Tbe size
of tbe lot is abont 1 acres, and the considera
tion was $55,000. The old Aiken mansion,
which dates back some 75 years, stands on the
ground, but it will be torn down to give place
to a fine modern residence, whicb Mr. Jenkin e
proposes to erect. Immediately to tbe east of
this property are the elegant residences of H.
C. Frlck and Robert Pitcaim. On the other
side of the avenue, a little east, is the Shady

There was a good feeling displayed at the
Stock Exchange yesterday, and, although the
sales were moderate 225 shares some of the
favorites scored fractional advances, and near

boom, selling at 37 and 3 the latter in the
afternoon. It closed firm at tbe top price.
Pittsburg Traction was weaker, the others
being steady. There, was also a concession In

Whatever Happens to the Money Market
t Will be for the Better.
There was no rush in local banking circles
yesterday, bnt a good average business was
transacted. Checking showed a falling off, but
depositing was fair. Money was plenty and
rates unchanged. There was a great scarcity
of to and S10 notes, notwithstanding the fact
tbat a large amount of them was received from
tbe East a short time ago.
A cashier being asked where they went, said
he did not know, but supposed they bad found
their way back to New York. "We use more
ot these denominations than any others." he
added. "In making np pay rolls there is nearly
always a large number of $5's, 110's and $20' s,
and when they are scarce considerable Incon
venience is felt. We have more tl's and J2's
than we need."
The Clearing House report, as made up by
Manager Chaplin, was a little less favorable
than usual, showing a slight falling off in the
volume of business. "This should cause no
alarm," remarked the financier. "What we
are doing Is strictly legitimate, tbe speculative
interest being an insignificant factor. We
have crossed tbe Rubicon without disaster,
aud have nothing to fear the remainder of tbe
year. Whatever happens will be for the bet
ter." The clearings were 11,875,779 P9 and tbe
balances 1467.968 0

Oil Wells In tbe Jefferson Ceuter Territory
Losing Their Grip..
News tbat the production of the Butler
county wells was rapidly falling off caused a
firm feeling at the opening of tbo oil market
yesterday and ran the price np from SS to 98.
After this little spurt the market fell back into
the rut, and closed rather weak at 97K-a cent
below the highest point. "What caused the
slump?" a broker was asked. "Oh, nothing,
except lack of business," was the reply.
A broker on the bull side said: "The situation
is becoming bullish every day, and I look for a
decided improvement by the end of this month
or beginning of next." Trading was about up
to tbe average of tbe past few weeks. Monday's
clearings were 724,000 barrels.

Cause a Rally In Stocks A Few Weak
Spots Revealed during tbo Dnv, but
the Active List Closes Higher
Bonds Brace Up.
New York, AuguBt 27. The stock market
was more active to-day and a generally strong
tone prevailed which caused a small and
healthy appreciation in values and in some of
me specialties material gains. There was a
general expectation that the rise of yesterday
was to be continued to-day, and the opening
was made at prices generally from to per
cent better than last evening's figures, but the
advances of the past two days were sufficient to
cause some realizing by the trading element
and the western operators were sellers to a
limited extent which checked the upward
movement and even bronght about a slightly
lower range of values. There was no news or a
character to have any positive effect upon the
market and after tne selling movement was
over the usual extreme dullnesi ensued. The
Northern Pacifies and especially the preferred
were well held, however, on the prospects un
der tbe new mortgage and the good statement
of earnings for July, and Atchison was bought
for Boston account being more active and
stronger than for some time back.
About noon it was announced that over a
million more bonds nad been offered at the
Bccret price which stimulated the bnyin" again
and monev which had ruled Arm 6 to oX per
cent eased off. The market responded imme
diately, and the noon prices were generally the
lo est of the day. and 8t. Paul, Northern Pa-
"V"1 """"'"i q nreierrea. Rock Island
and Tennessee Coal, all became prominent for
activity and strength. Rock Island approached
to within He of par on the receipt of the large
traffic enioi ed by that road. The bulls showed
no disposition to force matters much, which
were allowed to take their nmr ,i i n,
general list there was a slew and gradual ap
preciation in values, lasting until tbe last hour,
when again a disposition was shown to realize
upon'tbe early gains, when the announcement
was made tbat the Secretary or the Treasury
bad accepted the large amount of $1390.020
bonds and this stopped tLe selling, and the
market again became active and strong. Tbe
close was generally at about the best prices ot
the day. There wero a few final losses, but
they were for insignificant fractions only aud
almost tbe entire active list is higher this even
ing, though the advances over last night's fig
ures are for tho most part confined to small
fractions. Chesapeake and Ohio 2 preferred
rose 1; Cotton Oil. 1J4. and Rock Lsjand, 1.
The bond market was also somewhat active
the sales of all issues being 901,000; of which
tbe Rock Island 5s furnished Si two Th .,..
of tbe dealings was firm to stroug throughout
the entire day, and most of the final chances
are in the direction of higher figures, though
the number of issues traded in was small and
the trading was devoid of feature of special
interest. Houston and Texas lsts lost 25 at

A CHILD ON THE AXLE.
A Brakeman'a Heroism Saves the Life of a
Beidoeton, N. J., August 27. Leslie
Ireland, a 4-year-old son of John Ireland,
of Bridgeton, while playing upon the cars
near the New Jeney Southern depot, got
under a gravel train standing on a siding
aqd climbed upon the axle of the wheels.
The train soon backed oat and the little
fellow held on for a while and was seen by
the yard hands, who frantically gesticnlated
to the engineer, who reversed tbe engine,
but could not stop his train before the child
let go his hold and fell to the ground. He
was rolled along under the cars.
A brakeman ran along the train, and at
the peril of his life reached under and
dragged the boy ont, but the little fellow
was terribly cnt and brnised and it was
found that his right leg had been run over.
It was amputated as soon as he was taken
home. The brave little fellow suffered in
tensely, but did not complain. The brake
man and rough trainmen cried like children
at tbe boy's pitiable condition and heroism.
It is thought he cannot survive.

An Army of Renters Seeking Homes

The East Pittsburg Improvement Company
has Invested large sums of money in laying out
the town of
And in furnishing it with the most complete
and extensive system of publio improvements
in Allegheny county, outside the citiesInclud
ing sidewalks, sewers, water, natural gas and
electric lights, and it now takes pleasure in
calling the attention of wide-awake builders
and investors to the opportunity afforded them
by the great and growing demand for resi
dences and business houses at Wilmerding.
This demand comes especially from young and
enterprising men and firms who hare not suffi
cient capital to both build and stock, large
stores, but who are able and willing to pay a
handsome rent for adequate facilities, or pur
chase buildings outright on long time. Many
houses are now In course of construction, but
not enough to fill 10 per cent of the require
ments. Information as to tbe kind and size of houses
in greatest demand cheerfully furnished by
the company, and special prices given on lots
sold for immediate improvement.
