Feiday. September 6. lkS9. f
Retailers of market basket materials re
port no improvement in trade over last
week. At irnit and vegetable stalls, grapes,
roasting ears aud tomatoes are reported
cheaper, and peaches scarce and higher.
The supply of good peaches has not been up
to the demand for a week past.
Very fine cauliflowers are on the stalls,
and also, the first lruits of the new crop of
pineapples, which are unusually fine. Good
home-grown cantaloups have pat in an ap
parance the past week.
Eggs are on the advance, and a choice
article is fully 2c per dozen higher than last
week in a jobbing way. Nearby poultry is
very scarce, scarcer than for years. The
bulk of stock in this line with which onr
markets are supplied comes from Chicago.
Choice grades of creamery and Country
butter are firm, and the drift of prices is
The Outer Bobi Up.
The oyster season opened this week and
made a lair start, though the weather was at
first too warm ior any great activity in this
line. Advices from sources of supply indicate
a short oyster crap tins season, and a difficulty
in meeting demand is anticipated by packers.
The supply of fish is not up to the demand,
particularly for salmon. A leading dealer sajs
fi-Ji are not worth as much here as at sources
ot supply, and that the business is "only run
for glory at this time." Herring are the only
fish in supply equal to demand.
Staple meats at retail stalls do not chance.
Prices vary cry little for the past year, not
withstanding a steady downward drift of live
slock. Prime beeves arc 2c per pound lower
than a j ear ago. bat tenderloin steak and rib
roast of the best qualitv are the same. Tallow,
bides and rough meat are lower, but fine cuts
are unchanged the past year.
Jtrnmv and Fragrance.
In floral lines there are no changes worthy
of note. Trade is quiet, but there is a good
time coming and it is not far away. The first
frosts which nip the outdoor flowers bring good
cheer to those who are protected against such
influences bj largo conservatories. Two of our
leading flor.sts hive taken all the space in
floral hall of the Exposition building, and did
credit to themselves and the city by the fine
display on opening mzht. This display will
improve for a weeK to come. Whatever the
Exposition may lack in its exhibits, there will
be no lack in the display of beauteous things
lrom garden and conservatory.
Fullowi.ig are retail prices of market basket

MAEKETS BY THEE.
Wnrm Wenther In tho Northwest Parnlyzes
the Grain Pit Everything Weak and
Lower Discouraged Longs
Throw Their Burdens
Down Pork Active
Chicago The wheat pit was dominated to
day by bearish Influences, and the feeling be
came w eaker as the session progressed. Prices
receded to the lowest level touched this week,
there being a decline as compared with yester
day's close of a full ceut in the more deferred
deliveries. It was so apparent from the start
that if the market was to get ont of the rut it
had been in for a couple of days it would have
to break, and with the weather fine and news
from the East and abroad depressing in the ex
treme, nobody was surprised at the initial de
cline of v. Instead of a cold wave coming
the weather in the West was warmer and gen
erally clear, which allajedallfearof frost for
the present and weakened prices on the wholo
grain list. ,
For a time speculative trade aragged, but
toward noon the unloading by discouraged
and tired longs was followed by short selling
on a prettv large scale and the market sagged
rapidly. The principal local fcatnreas the
selling out of long wheat late in the session.
Tho weakest fnture in the list to-day wvs May.
It broke lc and closed at tho bottom. Decem
ber thowea a net loss of 1c, and-September and
October declined Jc There was a correspond
ing decline in all grades of cash wheat.
An active business was dono in corn during
the early part of the daj, trading being un
usually heav around the opening, after which
the pit became quiet and active by turns.
Fluctuations were frequent within Pio
range. Tho feeling developed was weaker and
transactions were at lower prices. The local
crowd was long, and as the frost predicted for
last night did not materialize, offerings on the
opening wero heavy. Initial trades wercj
5c below the closing of yesterday, and under
liberal offerings a decline of K more was re
corded. The market then reactel a little on
buying by shorts, ruled weak and closed Jc
lower than yesterday.
0tswere weaker and H&yic lower. The
weather wras fine and cool, and the corn mar
ket weaker and lower. This induced fair sell
ing and caused a depression in prices, as the
demand on the whole was light.
A tairlv active trade was reported in mess
pork, but the lceling was unsettled. Prices
ruled irregular, rather easy at the opening, but
soon advanced 1215c. Later they gradu
ally receded again to inside figures, but near
the close rallied again and closed compara
Trading in lard was only moderate. The
market was easy, early sales were made at 2
6c decline. Later the market was stronger
with a moderate inquiry from shorts, and the
decline was recovered. Toward the close the
feeling was easier and the market closed -quiet
at medium figures.
A fairly active business was reported in
short ribs. The feeling, however, was unset
tled and prices ruled irregular. The market
opened steady at yesterday's prices, but soon
w eakened and finally closed quiet.

A charter has been applied for for an elec
tric road from the Allegheny Cemetery gate,
connecting with the Citizens' Traction, to
run to Sharpsburg and the new town of As
pinwall, on the West Penn Eailroad. This
will boom property in that district. The
promoters of the road, among whom may
be mentioned Henry Warner, are also inter
ested in the new town, where It is proposed
to make one of the handsomest residence
places in the county. Quite a number of
lots have already been sold, and several hand
some dwellings are projected.
Charles Gumbert, who is connected with the
Pennsylvania Railroad shops at Torrens, said
yesterday that all arrangements had been made
for the removal of the machine and transfer
shops at that place to Walls station. He added
that the transfer business the past year or two
had been so large that the buildings and
grounds at Torrens were not equal to the work,
hence the necessity lor tho removal. Work
has been begun at Walls for the transfer build
ing, and It will probably be completed and the
removal made this falk The removal of the
shops will enable the railroad company to en
large the stockj ards, so as to occupy the ground
continuously from Fast Liberty station to Fifth
avenue extension, at Point Breeze, and embrac

The Michigan copper lode, one of the best
mines in the Rawhide district, 100 miles north
of Cheyenne, Wyo. T., was sold last week to
the Pennsylvania Salt Manufacturing Com
pany, of Pittsburg, for $23,000. Ore will be
hauled to the company's eastern works for
Prof. Edward Orton, who occupies the Chair
of Geology in the Ohio State University, ad
vises that natural gas in Western Pennsylvania
be only used for domestic purposes, holding
that the present lavish expenditure in factories
and for all purposes will exhaust the supply in
a few years. Iu Ohio, he says, a portion of the
Findlay field is already exhausted, and the
Mercer county field is disappointing expecta
tions. Prof. Orton state3 that the Columbus
Gas Company is hoarding its supply which it
gets from the Fairfield-Licking field at Lancas
ter and Hadley Junction. He advises the use
of meters, and says the Findlay people have so
wasted their gas that they are on the verge of
a shortage already.
The gentleman who is conducting the $400,000
deal in manufacturing property said yesterday:
"Negotiations are proceeding slowly, but, I
think, snrely. 1 am in hopes of being able to
report success in a very shore time." He
added that the deal was not for a new plant, as
stated, but for the purchase of an old one.
There appears to be a revival in the mortgage
business, the result, no donbt, of the retnrn
home from their vacations of a number of cap
italists. Forty-six were recorded yesterday,
the highest number in one day for some time.
The largest was for 117,000, followed by one for
S15.000, tnofor 10,000 and the rest from $3,500
down to 5225. A broker who deals largely in
mortgages said: "Ihis business is growing. It
is the safest aud most popular investment of
the day. Large amounts of money that for
merly found their way. into stocks and oil are
being placed in mortgages. But there is plenty
of it left and home money at that."
Work is being pushed on the Second avenne
electric road. The prospect of early rapid
transit is drawing attention to property in the
Hazelwood and Glenwood district. A Fourth
avenue gentleman said: 'There is a specula
tion in property out thero at the prices owners
are offering it at. I know of several properties
that could be sold at a handsome advance over
what they cost six months ago. The early pay
ments are an indncement,and are leading quite
a number of people to invest. The district is
filling up very fast. It possesses attractions
and advantages not usually found so conven
ient to the central part of the city, all of which
will be multiplied by rapid transit.
It is a remarkble fact, observes the iron and
Steel Trade Journal, London, that in the manu
facture of different kinds of machinery, the
Americans can beat us in pnee. W ages in the
United States are about 60 per cent higher
than in this country; materials are from 25 to
50 per cent dearer; yet the finished machines
can be pnt on the market cheaper. The Amer
icans cannot send out machines to neutral
markets any cheaper than is done by ourmanu
facturers; but it is surprising that they can at
least meet us in price.

Business at the Stock Exchange was of small
proportions yesterday, footing up only 110
shares 100 of La Noria and 10 of Philadelphia
Gas but the broadening tendency of the mar
ket was reflected in higher quotations for al
most everything on the list. Insurance stocks
were among the strong features, 36 being bid
for 100 Citizens' as an example. Forest Oil con
tinued its upward movement. It was wanted
at 105. Natural Gas of West Virginia also
made a slight gain. The tractions held their
ground and a little more, except Pittsburg,
which was weaker.

Local Bankers Report an Improvement la
the Borrowing Demand.
Several of the banks did a fair discount busi
ness yesterday, mostly at the 6 per cent rate.
Anything less was'on strictly first-class collat
eral and short time. "The change in the weath
er is making people feel like doing something,"
remarked a financier, "and I look for a steady
Improvement right along. All classes of busi.
ness men are needragmoney.and will be borrow
ers during tho season. The prospect Is excel
lent for an active money market."
The recent Influx of currency has removed
the pressure in that direction. It is temporarily
scarce at imcago ana ct. xiouu, owing
heavy drafts from the country. The scarcity
here was caused by requisitions for pay rolls.
Bnsm ess between banks was a good average,
the clearings footing up $1,920,843 70, and the
balances 364,616 20.

Shorts Attempt to Cover and Cnnio a Little
Spurt In Oil.
The feeling in tho oil market yesterday was
of a mildly bullish sort. It opened at 97, ad
vanced to 93Ji, declined to 97i and closed at
0S. The advance was caused by a few of the
shorts covering. It seemed to come from New
York and Oil City, and was one of those peri
odical spurts which possess no particular
significance, except to show the sensitive
nature ot the market. Trading was light at
all of theExchanges, and notably so here.
It is said that Pittsburg brokers have fewer
orders than ever before in the history of the
trade. As these constitute the life of business,
this absence Is an clement of discouragement
and apprehension of continued dullness.
Field operations are not particularly import
ant. The Jefferson Oil Company's No. X on
the Montag farm near Jefferson Center, 400
feet south of Campbell and Murphy's No, 1,
is dry. This is toward Saxonburg. and makes
wells drilling in that direction look extremely
dubious. A report from Evans City says the
Kanawha Oil Company has jnst completed its
first well since the recent organization. The
well is located about two and one-half miles
northeast of the town, and is good for 75 to 100
barrels, with a good sand.
The Jefferson Center field presents no new
features. The Yeokel maintains an hourly
production of about 30 barrels. Two new loca
tions have been made, one bv McCalmont &
Co., a few feet from their No. 1. which did 200
barrels the first day, and the other by the Jef
ferson Oil Company west of Campbell's No. 1.
The McCalmont Oil Company has purchased
the Smith & Co. well and also other property,
consisting of another drilling well and a three
acre lease. The consideration Is private, but is
believed to be a good round sum. The first
named well made 200 barrels the first 24 hours.
The Raccoon Oil Company bought in a very
good producer on tne Bubbett farm in the Mur
aocksville field a few days ago. It began flow
ing before the drill was through the sand and is
good for about 100 barrels a day. The well on
the James Saxton farm, owned by the Union
Oil Company, was also drilled in and will be a
light producer, not more than 30 barrels a day.
The following is the report of the operations
in the Lima field for the month of August:

Railroad Shares Contlnne Their Upward
Movement The Coalers nnd Grangers:
Still nl the Front Trusts Take
Back Sent Advance
In the Majority.
New York, September . There was less
business in the stock market to-day, though
there was no less interest In the dealings, and
even after the material advances of yesterday
most stocks are fractionally higher to-night.
The news of the day was of little importance,
but such as there was favored the advance.
as usual on Fridays there was considerable
selling by the professionals to close oat their
accounts for the week, and the desire to seenre
the profits accrued on tho rise of the previous
days of the week induced the selling ot long
stocks, and the room traders, who were gener
ally of a bearish temper, soon Joined in the
selling. The general demaqd for stocks, bow
ever, and the willingness of some of the large
operators to replace their sales at slight con
cessions, prevented the early decline from
going far, and the course ot prices was soon
changed to tho upward direction.
The coal stocks became the strong feature of
the market in the afternoon, and the buying of
those shares on the expectation that either the
dividends will be increased or the capital
stocks enlarged was very pronounced. The
Northern Pacifies took a secondary position In
the market, and even the grangers which were
supported by the western contingent were
rather backward. Ihe Southern stocks, how
ever, awoke from their lethargy and were
largely traded in, while Richmond and West
Point became one of the leading active stocks
and in tho rise occupied a very prominent posi
tion. The reports of the splendid condition of
business In that section of the country was
mostly responsible for the Improved position
of those shares in the market The trusts were
quite dull, and little or no interest seems to be
taken in them at present.
The opening was active and strong, though
considerable irregularity existed, and Wheel
ing and Lake Erie was down per cent. Tho
pressure to sell was directed principally against
Northern Pacific preferred and Atchison in
the early dealings, and the market was very
feverish, while most of the list shaded off from
the opening figures. Richmond and West
Point was the strong feature, however, and Its
sharp rise in the first hour rallied the list
though the Grangers continued weak until the
afternoon. The coal stocks then came to the
front and the selling movement exhausted it
self. The market gradually qnieted down and
the close while strong was quite dull. There
were a few fractional losses as the result of the
day's operations, but the majority of tbelist is
higher. Colorado Cool is np lc; Tennessee
Coal VAc, and Jersey Central and Delaware
and Hudson each 1 per cent.
The railroad bond market was a little more
active to-day, though the Increased sales were
principally dne to the large trading In Reading
firsts and the Denver and Rio Grande Western,
which contributed S200.000 and 8163,000 respect
ively to the total of 11,414,000. There was the
usual steady to strong tone, ana most issues
are fractionally higher.

Water Gns In Bad Odor.
Water gas has received a severe backset in
England. A Wolverhampton letter says: It is
becoming more and more apparent that a good
deal still remains to be done before the practi
cal difficulties In the way of nsing water gas as
a fuel can be said to be entirely overcome. It
must be regarded as an unfortunate thing for
the immediate future of water gas in this coun
try that an occurrence has happened this week
which goes far to substantiate some of the
strictures which producers of coal gas have ex
pressed upon the newer fuel expedient. The
danger to human life is the obstacle in the ay
of water gas nse to which I specially refer. On
Monday a Hull jury sat to consider the case ot
one Joseph Cade, a joiner and carpenter, of
New York, who was killed on the first day of
the Yorkshire Agricultural show. Cade was
employed at a stand occupied by the Yorkshire
Water Gas Company. He was at work there
ulien a purifier exploded, aud an iron plate,
forming its lid or cover, was blown up into the
air to an immense altitude. It fell upon the
poor joiner and killed him immediately. The
jury censured the company. What is worse for
the water gis boom than this verdict is the
f;rowinff conviction that not individual care
cssness, hot ignorance of the properties and
nnnaceraent of water pas. is the cause of such
cisualtics. Itnould seem that we have scarcely
progressed so far be ond American and conti
nental practice in regard to this fuel as some
authorities have made haste to declare.
