QUALITY OF SPKISG WHEAT KO. 1.
Important Facts as to Crops in Western

OFFICE ofPittsbtjeg DisrATcn.!
Thursday, Septembers, 1&S9. j
S. 0. McMasters, one of our prominent
flour jobbers, returned yesterday from a two
weeks' trip through Minnesota. He says
he went for a good time, and had it, weav
ing pleasure with business. As to crops in
the great spring wheat section of the United
States, Mr. McMasters reports as follows:
"I found sections where the wheat crop was
light; but taking the entire State of Minne
sota, there is a full average in quantity
this season, and as to quality, I do not be
lieve it was ever surpassed. Last season
quality was below average, and good mill
ing wheat was at a premium. Though the
yield this season maynotbemuch, it any, above
last, the quality is so much better that you may
put down the crop of 1SS9 as a great improve
ment over that of 16SS. In fact. I doubt it the
Minnesota wheat belts ever did better than
they have done this season.
"The corn crop is also extra good In the North
west. In ten days more corn will be out of all
danger. Weather was just as favorable as it
well could be through J uly and August There
was a sufficiency of moisture, and enough dry,
hot weather to bring the corn crop well up to
maturity. Minnesota is not an oats country,
but crops in this line reached their best this
Mr. McMasters reports a hunting expedition
from New Elm last week, of which ho formed a
part, which returned laden with 21 prairie
chickens and a dozen ducks. One of the fine,
fat prairie chickens he is reported to have shot
on the wing, but his modesty forbade him to
confirm the story. The interview developed
this fact as certain that Minnesota never yield
ed a better wheat crop than this, and that the
quality of flour made from new wheat will, as a
whole, beat all former records.
Crops Id Western Pennsylvania.
A reliable trader who pays weekly visits to
the farmers between Clinton and New Cum
berland reports the trade situation as follows:
"Eggs and butter are higher and firmer than a
week ago. Last week I cl osed out my stock of
eggs at ISc to stores. This week I sold 300
dozen at 20c Poultry was never as scarce in
my memory as it is this season. With the
greatest of difficulty I managed to get ten pairs
of chickens for one or my customers. The po
tato crop will not be as large on my beat as it
promised a few weeks ago. A great many are
rotting in the ground by reason of too much
"If frost will keep away until the last of Sep
tember there will be a good average corn crop.
This crop was very unpromising early in the
season. It did not have a good start, owing to
a late, wet spring. For the past two months
the weather bureau has been very favorable to
the corn crop, and If it will bnt continue so
three weeks more the crop will be out of the
woods. Two weeks' absence of frost would let
a large portion out, and four weeks would let
all out of trouble."
An Item of Interest to Packers.
The Daily Trade Bulletin, of Chicago, In Its
issue of September 4, gives the following item,
which interests all dealers in hog products:
"The attorney of the Board or Trade gives the
following opinion: Under section 4 of rule S3,
pork packed in barrels on and about the 1st of
October, placed in approved ice storage and
prepared and packed as required by the regula
tions relative to barreled or mess pork, is
regular and deliverable on contracts, and it is
not necessary that such pork shall remain in
ice storage for 30 days or any number of days
before it can be considered regular for de
livery." Packing Hay Trust.
The Kankakee Valley hay shippers organ
ized a trust last week at Lacrosse. IntL, to pro
tect themselves against the ruinous Driccs for
packings hay which have prevailed tho past'
year. The trust covers about three counties of
that famous valley, from which Immense quan
tities of packing bay come to this market
Last year thepacking hay business was a losing
tame. Money was lost by shippers in general.
The association has been formed for protec
tion, and so we now have a Packing Hay Trust,
in addition to countless others which have in
recent yesrs been launched on the commercial

Reports of Frost Hoc Pro
Chicago There was a continuation of yes
terday's dullness in the speculative market for
(vbeat to-day, and iu the absence of stimula
ting news or outsido support the feeling was
again quite heavy. That the price did not get
below.7Sc for December was probably due to
the fact that a prominent local operator stood
ready to buy all the crowd would sell at that.
It was a light, scalping deal all day, there be
ing no outside orders either way and no con
centrated local buying.
Early cables, though non-conimital, were
upon tho whole, bearish in tone. Closing quo
tations for futures were about c below these
of yesterday, with trading confined largely to
December and Mav. Fluctuations were ex
tremely narrow throughout, is covering all of
A fair business was transacted in com, and
the feeling developed was firm, trading being
at slightly higher price. The strengthening
factor was reports of frost last night in some
sections of tho West, and the market opened
firm at yesterday's closing prices but soon sold
offejjjc, offerings being large. Local longs
sold freely. A reaction followed the early de
cline and the market recovered, which was due
to indications of frosts in Iowa, Illinois and
Indiana to-night The market fluctuated fre
quently within ie range, final quotations be
ing He below yesterdav.
Oats were unsettled.' Reports of bad weather
and the advance in corn bad a strengthening
effect on the market and induced liberal buy

time trading was brisk after bujers had been
filled up, weaknesses set in and prices receded

Early in the day a moderately active business
was done in pork. Prices ruled somewhat
higher, closing at about medium figures.
Only a small trade was reported in lard and
the feeling was easy. Prices ruled 25c
lower and the market closed quiet at meuium
Trading was fairlyactive in ribs and the feel

prices 25c higher, but with moderately free

ONE CONGRESSMAN JIAPP1.
Every Postmaster in His District, Big and
ISrXCIAI. TZLEGBAU TO TUX DISPATCII.l
"Washington, September 5. At least
one Republican Congressman is perfectly
satisfied with the administration, and that
is Representative Sherman, of New York,
who is now in the city. While he ad
mits that the Presidental Postmasters
come somewhat slow, he points
with pride to the fact that there is not in his
district a fourth-class postoffice worth $200
a year or upward, not one in fact that any
body would want, but has been filled.
He is proud of the additional
fact that while under Cleveland the
trst fourth-class postmaster in his dis
trict wasn't appointed until July 30, under
this administration all of the lourth-class
offices, worth 5200 or upward, were filled.
Mr. bhernian is happy, and asserts that if
other Congressmen have not got as much it
was because of their own inactivity.

ADVANCE IN REALTY.
An Upward Movement That Touches
Every Part of the Long Line.
THE BUSINESS IN GOOD SHAPE.
Brokers Divided on the Proposition to
Adopt Trading in Fntnres.
TAKING THE SHINE OUT OF SUGAE TKUST
Owners of real estate are responding to
the revival in trade with an advance in
values all along the line. Said Samnel "W.
Black yesterday: "There has been a notable
advance in real estate within the past few
weeks. I could make a number of sales if
the owners would accept what they asked
three months ago. Several properties have
been withdrawn from the market, the
owners being at a loss to set a price. A fine
property in the East End has jumped from
530,000 to 535,000 in a few days. I could
mention several other similar cases. The
advance ranges from 15 to 20 percent.
There is no particular reason for the enhance
ment so far as I know. I suppose it is tho, re
sult of the heavy demand."
For Sumo time a quiet movement has been
going on amonc certain members ot the Stock
Exchange to secure an amendment of the rules
legalizing sales for future delivery, as is done
in New York and other cities. In response to
a call for a meeting of members to consider
the proposition they came together yesterday
but without making a decision adjourned to
Monday afternoon next, when this matter will
probably be settled one way or the other. It is
urged against the change that it is unnecessary,
as futures can be dealt in under existing rules.
Thefriendsof the project contend that its
adoption would broaden the field of action by
placing other properties on the list,' which
would attract the floating Interest and close up
the bucket shops, thereby improving the char
acter ot speculation and increase the import
ance and influence of the Exchange, the
maintenance of which is essential to the pros
perity of the city. Opinion as to the propriety
of the Innovation is divided, but the weight of
it seems to be in opposition. The meeting on
Monday promises to be one of the liveliest held
at the Exchange for a long time.
The shine is being taken out of the Sugar
Trust which has been quite a favorite with
certain Pittsburg speculators. The Daily
Vindicator, a Wall street publication, says:
"The feeling on the street regarding Sugar
Trust certificates is becoming more bearish
daily. Reputable stock commission houses re
fuse to permit their customers to trade in them
upon margins, while the leading banks will not
accept them upon any basis in loans. The
clique is setting into a very tight place. The
Southern nugar crop promises to be the largest
in the history of this country, and bids fair in
consequence to materially reduce, if not wipe
out, the profits of the Trust The insiders who
are familiar with this state of things are more
than anxious to throw over their holdings, but"
they find it impossible to get a market for
them, and are now afraid a crash in these
things may come before they will be able to un
load. Every trick known to the wily stock
gambler is being employed to saddle the public
with these certificates, and if they do not suc
ceeded in doing it it will not be for the want of
The real estate market is in an excellent con
dition for the season. In fact it is active, con
sidering that about 50 per cent of those who
dabble in it are out of the city. The demand is
largely for small-sized building lots, large
properties, especially business sites, being
temporarily neglected. Among the trans
actions yesterday were sales by Black it Baird
of eight lots in North Homestead to parties
who will build on them this season.
The Government engineer in charge of the
Potomac lately announced some strange facts
concerning the planting of willow trees. In
vestigation showed that the water reached a
height of 2 feet 7 inches above the high water
mark of the freshet of 1877. which is the highest
known or recorded freshet The benefit of
planting willows upon new lands bas been jus
tified. That portion of the newly-made flats
upon which willows were planted was pro
tected from washing, so that practically no
damage was done there, while in portions of
the improvement which were not so protected,
there was great loss.
There is nothing new to be said of the iron
market this week. Prices hold Arm, and will
go higher should coke be materially advanced.
Orders for all descriptions of iron are coming
in freely, and the mills are working up to their
full capacity. The demand for pipe is some
thing extraordinary, and in some cases orders
for immediate delivery have been refused.
The prospect is good for a continnauce of ac
tivity throughout the fall and winter.
It bas been a matter of much historical
inquiry and mental speculation as to the origin
of the name Sheboygan, Many years ago,
according to the latest version, when the red
man of the forest ruled supreme, the chief of a
tribe who had his wigwam on the site of what
is now the Cucker Chair Company plant was
the father of a papoose, but constitutionally a
weak and puny boy, having the mental traits of
a girl and an effeminate disposition, which
mado tho uld chief allude to his offspring as
"she-boy." xne years rolled around, and an
other heir was presented to the Indian. He
glanced at the little delicate mite of humanity,
turned up bis nose at its sickly appearance,
and, shrugging his shoulders, gave expression
to the regular Indian "Ugh!" and said. "She
boy again!" and stalked away. Ever since
then the place was called "Sheboyagaln,"
which a more enlightened civilization has cor
rupted to Sheboygan.
Borne genius a Yankee, no doubt has made
the discovery, or rather makes the assertion,
that a fly always walks upward. Put a fly on a
window, and np be goes toward the top: he
can't be made to walk downward. So an in
ventor has made a screen divided in half. The
upper part laps over the lower, with an inch
space between. Well, as soon as a fly lights on
the screen, he proceeds to travel upward, and
thus walks straight out doors. By this means,
a room can be quickly cleared of files.

'The old story told dally at the banks was
slightly varied yesterday by statements that
there was an improvement In the loan demand.
"We are not very busy yet," remarked a cash
ier, "but expect to bo before long. Business
will require considerable money between now
and the holidays, but we expect to be able to
supply the demand."
Another banker said: '"The only new feature
that I am aware of is a better demand for
money to meet which and have enough left for
emergencies the East has been drawn on for
considerable amounts. This will make cur
renev ensier "

The Yankee Girl Mine.
According to the Denver Republican this
mine, the stock of which is held almost entire
ly in Pittsburg, bids fair to be a slmon pure
bonanza. Superintendent Schwartz a week ago
opened up the richest body of ore ever found
in the mine. Two cars of the ore are worth from
30,000 to S40.000; the strike was made between
the fourth and fifth levels, and is the main
body of the Springer, that was worked out in
1S55. Ore was sold In Denver for 54,200 per ton;
an JSOO brick was melted out of one sack. The
new ore body is strictly the same character,
and specimens shown in town to-day are one
half silver. It is claimed that the ore body
cannot be worked ont in a year, and ten days
will suffice to wipe out the debt on the proper
ty. All Red Mountain is jubilant over the
strike, and other properties are starting up
with renewed vigor.
Transferring the Stock.
The work of transferring the stock of the

will have 4-5-foot spans, and there will be two
foot ways and four tracks.
The Upward Movement in Stocks Exhibits
StnjhiB Powers Nearly Everything
Uisher nt tho Close The
Grnnsers and the Coalers
New Yoke, September 5. The stock mar
ket was again very active and decidedly streng
to-day, the weakness seemingly having en
tirety disappeared from the list. The con
tinued animation was largely the result of buy
ing orders from outside sources, though the
most influential of these was the buying of the
Western stocks by the Chicago party, which
mado the Grangers to-day the leading stocks
with the exception of the Coalers! The Vil
lards occupied rather a secondary position in
the market, though there was liberal buying of
those shares by brokers supposed to act for the
insiders, and the impression that, the pur
chases for Mr. Villard had been completed was
not bo mucn ueueveu.
The bearish feeling based upon frosts in the
West was very smalt, and while there was a
feeling thattbe reaction should have continued
further there was considerable hesitancy in
making further short sales. The Coal stocks
were the great feature of the day, and the
etfect of the recent demonstration of harmony
In continuing the restrictive policy finally
scared the shorts In those shares and a liberal
covering movement was chiefly responsible for
the rise to-day. The smaller coal andiron
companies were specially strong and the Ten
nessee Coal was also helped by rumors of im
provements to be made by new capitalists inter-
esfccu iu buo cumpany.
FRIDAY "" SEPTEMBER "
strength were Manitoba, Wisconsin Central,
Tennessee Coal, Wheeling and Lake Erie pre
ferred, and Kingston and Pembroke. Wheel
ing and Lake Erie advanced on the continued
good earnings and hints of developments In
the stock from London, where a large amount
of it has lately been sent The London prices
this morning were generally lower, but our
market opened higher, with advances over last
night's figures extending to. per cent The
market was rather quiet at first but Northern
Pacific and the Coal stocks became very strong,
and marked activity was soon developed, the
upward movement extending rapidly to the
rest of the list The advance was so rapid,
however, that a material reaction took place
before noon, and a decided weakness was de
veloped in Cotton Oil.
The market regained its tone after 12 o'clock
and the strength began to show in the special
ties, many of which scored handsome .gains,
while the upward movement in tho active
stocks was slow but steady. Toward the last
hour realizing sales checked the progress of
the advance and fractional reactions were made
all over the list but the close was active and
firm to strong at close to the best prices of the
day. The list is almost Invariably higher.

THE COUNTERS WAS MAD.
She Creates a Scene nt a Dance at the
Quebec, Septembers. Quebec society is
agitated over an encounter that occurred an
evening or two ago in the presence of
the Governor General between two
well-known society ladies of this city,
one the Countess De Londieres,
wife of the Chancellor of the French
consulate at Quebec, and the other a sister
ol the Attorney General of the Province of
Quebec, and the wife of a prominent French
journalist. The ladies were included in a
select company of about a hundred
guests, that "were invited by the
Governor General and Lady Stanley
to a dance at the vice-regal quarters, at the
Citadel, with the Admiral and officers of the
North American fleet, now here, and with
the Lieutenant Governor of the Province
The Countess, while promenading with a
Eartner of the previous dance, spied her
usband on the other side of the ballroom
having on his arm a young married
lady, of this city, who is not
only exceedingly prominent in Quebec's
best society, but also deservedly esteemed
lor her amiability of manner and propriety
of conduct. The Countess dashed over to
her husband, and tearing l'iui from the lad v
on his arm, ordered him to come home with
her at once.
One rumor alleges that the Countess
struck the other lady in the face with her

Tlie Cause of a Sodden Decrease of Water
la the St vers. '
During "Wednesday night 16 of the
wickets in the, Davis Island Dam were
lowered, and the water fell rapidly yester
day, flowing into the river below the dam.
At sundown "Wednesday the river indi
cated 39 inches, and by the same hour yes
terday it had fallen 16 inches. The wickets
were lowered and the water let out to
facilitate the work on the new bridge at
Brnnot's Island. Steamboat men are not
well pleased with ihe action, claiming that
the dam is designed as an aid to navigation,
and not for the benefit of bridge builders.
No barges wereletdowntheriver yesterday
and the prospects are now that none will be
moved for quite a while. It will require
over four feet of water before any loaded

There are paid also, from the Pittsburg
office, 236 pensions to veterans of the Mexi
can War and 90 to widows.
