TWO BOWING EITALS.
Interesting Gossip About the Teemer
THE SCULLERS' STILES COMPARED
Eome Particular Bemarks About the SL
EYEEITHING EEADI FOE THEIBEACE
On Friday next the sculling match between
John Teemer and J. G. Gaudaur, for 1,000 a
side, will take place over the McKeesport
course. The stakes are up, and it Is left to
The Dispatch to select a referee, or for the
sporting editor of this paper to act himself.
The race is straight away, and the distance to
ho rowed will be about four miles. The race is
undoubtedly creating considerable interest
throughout Western Pennsylvania, and, ac
cording to present intentions, excursion trains
are to be run from various places in Eastern
Ohio to McKeesport the day of the race. The
somewhat new feature here of a straight away
race ought to be au attractive one, because a
race of that kind affords every opportunity to
spectators on the steamers to see every inch of
the race, and a good straight away race is
worth looking at. Speaking on this point the
other day to the writer, Gaudaur said:
"I certainly think that a straigltt-away race
is the best for everybody. I know it suits me
best, as I claim that turning a stake boat
breaks a man all up. He gets out of his stroke
and has to almost stop, and it demands a very
great effort to get speed on the boat again.
Again, as soon as about a mile is rowed a rower
begins to fret and worry about getting to his
stake all right He haB to be constantly look
ing round, and even then there is a possibility
of getting his eye onto the wrong stake
The writer saw both contestants row over tho
course on Friday. The course is an excellent
one. and Gaudaur likes it extreme!) well. He
probably never looked in better condition in
Lis life, which reflects great credit on his
trainer, AL Haxnm. On Friday, when the St.
XJouis man got fairly down to work, he sent
his boat through the water just as gracefully
as a swan. He is a powerful rower and can
keep his boat on an even keel almost as well
ds could Hanlan In his best day. He is not a
last striker, as on Friday he never seemed to
exceed about 31 to the minute, But Gaudaur
seems to have changed his stjle somewhat
since he last rowed here. When he sculled
over the McKeesport course he had about as
long a reach forward as one could expect to
see and he pulled his scull through the water
with remarkable power and accomplishment,
finishing well back. On Friday, however, he
didn't get near so far forward and finished his
stroke with his elbows projecting considerably
out. His boat was gilding along smoothly
enough, but the least swell would have certain
ly disturbed lit sadly under the' circumstances.
The slight change of style may be acceptable to
some judges, but all theories are against it.
The more arm work there is most certainly
will the rower be the more handicapped both
in staying power and speed. Hanlan's style
compared with that of the late James
Kenforth settles this point. Gauaaur's
natural length of reach ought to
enable him to use a long, sweeping
Stroke in a way that w ould keep his boat al
ways in good motion. However, he is confident
of victory, but the probabilities are that after
the first mile or two his speed will wane- bo
cause of the def ct aboi e named.
Teemer rowed the full length of tho course
finishing at a rate of 32 to the minute. He
started to row a trial on Thursday evening just
at dusk but run into a railroad tic that was
floating down the river. His trial was, there
fore, postponed and maybe rowed to-day or to
morrow. He isroniug with his usnai dash,
but on Friday made the spray fly considerably.
He has plenty of speed and feels confident of

So far the betting on the race has not been
heavy, as almost all the local money is for
Teemer. The two scullers are old opponents,
and are both ex-cbampions. Gaudaur won the
championship lrom Teemer in 1SSG, and a year
later the former retained the title by defeating

patrons of the sport are expected to be present.

LAUNCHING A CRUISER
The Philadelphia Daly Slides Into the
Water In tho Pretence of a Great
Crowd One ot tbc Beit Yes-
cts of the New Naw.
Piiiladeltiiia, September 7. The new
steel cruiser Philadelphia was launched at
Cramp's shipyards, this city, at 11:12 this
morning. Added interest was given to the
occasion by the presence of a number of dis
tinguished guests, chief among them being
Mrs. Harrison, wife or the President, and
Mrs. John "Wananiaker. The rumor that
President Harrison might be present served
no doubt to attract a great many people,
and when the vessel slid off the ways fully
200,000 persons were assembled in and
around the great shipyard.
The Philadelphia is the fifth vessel of
that name in the navy. The first two were
primitive crafts and served in the Revolu
tion until sunk in battle. The third, the
most celebrated of the name, was con
structed in 1799, and was a frigate of 1,240
tons, fitted out with 36 guns and carrying
300 men. In 1630 she was wrecked off
Tripoli and her commander and crew taken
prisoners. After she had been fitted out by
the enemy she was recaptured by Captain
Decatur and burned. The fourth Phila
delphia was obtained from the merchant
service for the navy and served through the
The new vessel is officially reckoned as
cruiser Ho. 4, and is the fourth in size oi
the unarmored cruisers provided for the new
navv. Unlike the vessels already con
structed, her official test will not be rated
according to horsepower but fixed speed;
contract stipulates a speed of 19 knots; un
less this is reached large deductions wm De
made in the contract price. The cruiser's
length is 315 feet; beam, 48 feet; draught,
l'Ji feet and displacement, 4,324 tons. Her
main battery will consist of 12 C-inch rifles,
while her secondary battery will be com

A Cnrlons Indian Legend That Accounts for
St. Louis Ulobe-Dcmocrat.
Ho white man ever saw a buffalo west of
the Kockies. The Indians of the North
west have a legend to account for this.
Many moons ago, they say, some Indians
were hunting buffalo on the other side of
the range they were plentiful over there
then. An old medicine man told them
where to find a big herd which, he said, was
led bv a red bull calf. The Great Snirit
would give them all the buffaloes they de
sired, but the red calf must not be killed.
If it was killed the Great Spirit would
punish them severely.
The bravest started out, found the buffa
loes and slaughtered them by the hundreds.
"When they looked among the carcasses the
body ot the red calf was found. It was
never known who killed it, but they say
the baffaloes all disappeared and were
never again seen on the other side of the

about babies and a parent's love of a man

encore every time.
Topical songs will always be relished, but
the audiences are growing more and more
critical, and the music must be sprightly

are appreciated, and no matter how familiar
a song is, a sympathetic male voice will al

EEF0EH OF MOTIKG DAI TO BE PUSHED
One of the most important financial trans
actions that have ever taken place in Pitts
burg has just been closed up, The H, C.
Frick Coke Company having made the
Fidelity Title and Trust Company its trus
tee to secure an issue of bonds to the
amountoi 52,500,000. Of this amount about
$1,000,000 have already been placed in
Pittsburg. The remainder of the loan, 51,
600,000, is for sale by the Fidelity company.
Tne bonds bear 6 per cent interest and run
Heretofore it has been the custom in large
deals of this kind to apply to Eastern trust
companies. It is agreeable to note that
this is no longer necessary, nor in any way
excusable, as there aro home institutions of
sufficient standing to attend to any business of
a financial nature, no matter how great the
The success attending the placing of this
large loan is quite a triumph for Pittsburg,
showing, as it does, that she is fully competent
to manage her own affairs without outside
help, and, if noed be, to lend a helping hand to
her sister cities in time of need. It is to be
hoped that this transaction will open the way
to others of equal er even greater importance.
Tho summer is ended. What of the harvest?
Those who read SradstreeVt and R. G. Dun &
Co.s reports, which appeared in The Dis
patch yesterday, found an answer to the
question. The labors of the husbandman
have been munificently rewarded. "With un
stinted liberality the generous soil has re
sponded to all demands made upou It. Large
crops assure an abundance of food, at reason
able prices. Famine may stalk forth in other
lands, but it is impossible here. This country
has plenty, and to spare. .
Agriculture lies at the foundation of all busi
ness. When it prospers everything else flour
ishes. When it languishes every other industry
is depressed. The merchant and the manu
facturer are as much interested in the crops as
the farmer, and arrange .their bnsiness and
calculate profit or loss, activity or idleness, ac
cording as they are large or small. The pros
perity of a nation is to be judged by the prod
uce of its soil rather than by the number of its
manufactories. Agriculture is subordinate to
no industry that is prosecuted by man. Vyith
out it be would soon return to baroansm, sub
sisting by the chase.
The prospect of good crops sustained busi
ness throughout tho summer in t"he face of a
number of important failures and wide-reaching
labor troubles, which, under other condi
tions, would have precipitated a panic, and the
reality gives assurance of a prosperous fall and
winter trade, under the stimulus of which tho
danrdng3 of a revival are already seen and felt.
Pittsburg is fortunate among cities. She is
almost self-sustaining. Being a creditor, there
is a steady stream of money flowing into her
lap, to be used in tho expansion of local busi
ness. What she has is her own, to do with it
as she, elects. This gives her standing in the
financial world, and is a certain guarantee
against reverses. A crash that would shake
Pittsburg would leave very little standing of
any other city in the Union.
And so, under highly favorable conditions,
this hive of industry, this financial Gibraltar,
is entering upon the fall and winter campaign
under able generals and with a full commissa
riat All of her great industries are keeping
step to the music of improvement Already
far in advance of the business of last year, the
remaining months of 1889 will show still greater
expansion. All that is needed to meet the ex
pectations of the most exuberantfancyis strict
adherence to the enlightened, but, at the same
time, conservative, policy, which has hitherto
been the guiding star of all her business ven
tures. Tho scheme for changing moving day to May
1 is not dead by any means, but only sleeping.
The committee in whose hands the matter rests
nas delayed action on account of the absence
of a large number of property holders during
the summer. As they are returning, tne propo
sition will soon be put in shape for final action.
That the change is necessary from almost
every point of view, and in the interest of tho
health and comfort of the large community of
-mners. -ana oi no possible detriment to the
landlords, is generally admitted, and that it will
be adopted there is scarcely a doubt Its popu
larity will carry it through.
The Law Committee of the New York Stock
Exchange has decided that a "put or call,
spread or straddle," does not become a binding
contract upon a member of the Exchange un
less a notice that the stock which the option
calls for shall be delivered to or required from
the maker of the privilege. Until such time as
the holder of the privilege signifies his inten
tion of his purpose in regard to stock, the paper
which he holds as a guarantee against loss Is
if the holder decides to put or call, the
shares as per option, and so notifies the maker
of the privilege, ana gives the required 24
hours' notice, then his claim becomes a prior
Hen, and he will be protected under the consti
tution of the Stock Exchange, otherwise his
paper is worthless, and whatever redress is
open to him must bo obtained through the
courts. If the contract bo held until date of
expiration and tho holder can prove that he
has suffered a monetary loss, and the writer of
the paper has anything to levy upon, he may
doubtless obtain relief.
Business last week showed improvement all
round. There were no weak spots outsldothe
Exchange, and even there a more buoyant feel
ing was apparent although it did not manifest
itself in the way of sales. The improvement in
the money market was so pronounced as to
attract ceneral notice. With liberal borrow
ing every branch of industry must expand.
There was a fair movement in real estate, 185
deeds and 216 mortgages being recorded, a gain
oyer toe previous ween Dotn in number and
amount Au advance in realty of 15 to 20 per
ceut was noted in this department on Thurs
day. Iron manufacturers are among tho busiest
people in the community, and their activity
affects everything else. A number of financlors
and others gave it as their opinion that the
good times so long looked for had really come
and come to stay. The change is welcome as
well as timely.
An old fnrnituie repairer said the other day
that at least three-quarters of the alleged an
tique furniture, for which wealthy people may
pay fabulous prices. Is bogus.
"How is It madeT"
"When an old buildlnir Is torn down there is
always a good demand for the ancient oak tim
bers and sheathing. They are sound, well
seasoned, and unmistakably old. This lumber
makes up into excellent antique furniture.
Those who make It are cunning workmen, and
they all know how to apply chemicals which
have the effect of 'aging' the completed article
so that it is difficult even for an expert to detect
"Bat these clever cabinet makers are not al
ways scrupulous enough to have their claw
footed chairs, cabinets, and so forth, made up
of old wood, but work up fresh young maple or
oak, andttain or color it in such a-way that you
would believe the article a century old. Some
of the purchasers of these wonder why they
snap and crack as they stand In their rooms. Of
course they would not do this If they were
genuine antiques. By and by the veneering
scales off or the joints draw apart, and the
thing is brought to me for repairs. I always
know when I see one of these antiquities
coming in that some one has been paying too
much for a whistle.' "

Onilrond Shares Show no Dlsposilon to Let
Go-Bullish New. Worked; for All It
Waa Worth The Bank State
meat an Element of
New Yore; September 7. The stock mar
ket was unusually active and strong to-day
for a Saturday, and the dealings reflected
something more than the usual traders'
scalping. The news of the day as a rule was
rather bullish and the buying was of the best
kind and extended to a large number of stocks.
There was considerable bear pressure at the
opening, and the first prices were generally
small fractions lower than last evening's clos
ing figures, and Delaware and Hudson was ex
ceptional, with a loss of 1 per cent at 155, The
coal stocks seemed to be neglected by their
friends to-day, and while the general list is
fractionally higher in most cases to-night the
coal stocks furnished the only marked changes
in quotations, and they were in the direction of
lower figures. Tennessee coal made a sharp
slump, dropping from 46c to 43Kc, and only a
portion of this drop was recovered.
The pressure at the opening met with a good
demand for stocks, and the temper of the
market was soon changed for the better, and
while Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and St
Louis was specially weak, dropping from 75o
last evening to 73c the losses in the others
were confined to small fractions. The reaction,
however, was sharp and a full and complete re
covery took place, even Cleveland, Columbus,
Cincinnati and St Louis going back to Its first
figure. The rise was led by Rock Island, which
rose to SI W followed by Louisville and
Nashville, which was the only one of the
Southern stocks to get any attention outside of
Richmond and West Point while Missouri Pa
cific, Atchison and Wabash preferred were
close behind. The last named stock was unu
sually active and strone. The market quieted
down toward 11 o'clock, and small reactions
took place, but the issue of the bank state
ment with its marked Increase in the surplus
reserve started anew the bullish feeling, and
many stocks reached still higher prices than
during the first hour. The close was active
and strong at the best prices reached.
Railroad bonds were also fairly active to-day.
the sales of all Issues for the two hours' ses
sion reaching $666,000. There was no special
activity except In the Ohio Southern incomes,
which furnished $85,000 to the total. The mar
ket was in close sympathy with the trading in
stocks and a decidedly strong feeling prevailed
throughout the session. Sales for the week
were $5,062,000, against $5,612,000 last week.

Weakness tho Leading Pcnluro of the
Wheat Pit Tho Downward move
ment Continued Pnblle nnd Pri
vate Cnbles Decidedly Bear
Ub Fork Aclivo and
Chicago In the speculative branch of the
wheat trade to day there was a continuation of
yesterday's weakness, prices showing further
depreciation. News was in tho main bearish,
and so was local sentiment. The most import
ant piece of news was a dispatch from Minne
apolis saying that owing to the failuro of all
but four elevators In thit city to comply with
the new law and thus become regular, 1,000,000
bushels of wheat will disappear from the
stocks there in the next report Next in im
portance as a bear factor was the report tbat
the Kansas Board of Agriculture estimating
the crop of that State at 35,000,000 bushels, or
19,000,000 bushels in excess ot the yield of lSSS.
Selling orders from the Northwest were re
ceived. Receiving houses here are getting orders to
soil Kansas No. 3 red wheat in 60 000 bnshel
lots to arrive. There was pretty large trade
in tbe pit for a Saturday. Temporary strength
was developed eaily by the covering of two or
turee large lines oi snorts, uui tne undertone I
was weak and the bears were in control most of I
the session. Tbe net decline for the leading I
futures was QKc, and the aloslng figures I
.2 ,irfh SP-S
the day and week. There wm feawlMgafcsa
account of Eastern parties. Both yW a4
private cables noted deli and easier ssarxeta.
'A moderate speculative trade was transacted
in corn, and the feeling developed ws weaker
on September, while the other futures showed
but little change compared with yesterday's
closing figures. About the only feature was
the free selling of September by a promteetM
local trader, which reduoed the premium oi
that future so that now it is quotable aboat tke
me as uciooer.
Trading In oats was fair for May. but for
other months very little business transpired,
There was liberal baying orders for May at the
inside and fa offerings at tho outside garee,
and the market held steady at a slight deeUae.
Considerable Interest was manifested ia awes
pork, and speculative trading was quite aettre
and almost exclusively la October and January
deliveries. The feeling was soaewkat asset
tied and prices irregular, the former' ruling 8o
higher and the latter "KO 10c lower. The mar
ket closed at about outside figures for the form
er and inside for the latter.
A comparatively light bastaess waa reported
in lard, and the feeling warsteady. . Hales vera
made at about yesterday's range of pnees.
In short rlo sides a moderately aotive trade
J was reported, and the market waa steadier.
