Moxdat, September 9, 1SS3.
Markets in most lines "were slow, owing
to the liberal receipt's, and prices were not
quite np to last week. The exception to
this rule was in the line of sheep and lambs,
rhich were in light supply, and fancy
grades commanded better prices than last
In cattle the supply was large and de
mand light. The market started out slow,
and concession of 10 to 15c per cnt from last
Monday's rates was essential in order to
effect sales. The quality of cattle on the
market was a decided improvement on last
week's. Prime heavy estcrn beeves weighing
1,500 to 1.600 lbs sold at $4 S5 to So; medium
weights 1,350 to 1.430 lb-, S4 CO to 54 TO; do L200
to 1,300 lbs. Jl 15 to 4 45; prime light weights,
900 to 1,100 lbs, J3 K to $4 10. Fresh cows were
dullatarangeof EStoSlO. The only sales re
ported w ere at J39 to S3i Calves were scarce
and firm at a ranee of 5c to CJc. Dry cows,
bulls and stags sold at 3V to 3c per lb.

light. Markets were slow, at lower prices than

Monday, and markets were unchauged. There
is general complaint that the quality of cattle
coming to this market the past week or two Is
not up to the standard. Stock raisers are not
putting a sufficient amount of com into their

Chicago The market for wheat ruled
steady and narrow to-day. There n ere no new
features and trading was light and of a scalp
ing character. Opening flguies were Jc under
Saturday's closing range for the leading
futures, the early w eakness resulting from the
larger receipts present and prospective, and
the dull, drooping cables. It was the impression
here earl v that the visible supply would increase
1,000,000 bushels, and this had a depressing
effect. Despite the bearish surroundings the
market did not break in a way to cause any
uneasiness among holders.
Tho demand was sufficients active after the
ooeningto put the pneo back to Saturday's
closing figures in a very few minutes and from
that time until within half an hour of the close
December swung between 77c and 77Jc,
touching both extremes several times. The
quantity technically dropped out of the visible

of some of the houses there to comply with the
new rules making them regular, is 192.000
bushels. This made the visible supply show a
decrease of 173,000 bushels. During the last
half pi ices eased off, closing quotations being
at the bottom for September and October and
Jsc lower lor the aaj. December and May
rallied a small fraction, and -were only a shade
below Saturday's close at the adjournment.
A moderate and very good shipping business
was transacted in com, the feellrfc being
steady. Fluctuations were confined within
narrow limits. Reports regarding the growing
crops are generally of a very favorable char
acter. The market opened a shade under the
closing of Saturdas", was firm and gradually
advanced iac became quiet and steady,
closing a shade better than Saturday.
Oats were traded In moderately and a stead

with some irregularity in prices. October ad

higher, but outside figures were not main

2TIAGABA Falls, September 9. A. H.
Eogers, n Binghamton young man, came
to Xiagara Falls this afternoon and inquired
for Joseph Spalding, the hack driver who
saw Miss Anna Mead go over the American
falls last Tuesday. As soon as Spalding
was found Bogers asked him all sorts of
questions about the young lady, and it soon
leaked out that he was her affianced hus
band. He afterward went to the Spencer
House, where he recognized the signature in
the register, "Mrs. Lawrence, of Brooklyn,"
as being that of his sweetheart.
Mr. Rogers is satisfied that she was the
victim of an infatuation for Niagara, "Miss
Mead was here two weeks ago," he said,
"with two lady relatives from Philadelphia,
and when she returned home spoke ot the
fascinations wbich death in the Niagara
torrent would have for her. She talked con
tinually about it until her folks tired of
listening to her. AVe missed her after her

The H. C. Frick Cote Company Bonds
Going Off Like Buckwheat Cakes.
WHOLE ISSUE WANTED AT HOME.
Light Thrown on the Manner of Placing
Mortgages on Western Farms.
A SEW DEAL AT THE STOCK EXCHANGE
The demand for the H. C. Frick Coke
Company bonds, amounting to $2,500,000,
the placing of which has been entrusted to
the Fidelity Title and Trust Company, ol
Pittsburg, is so far from being exhausted
that it is almost certain the entire amount
will be absorbed by local capitalists. Con
siderably more than half of the issue had
been disposed of up to the close of business
yesterday, and negotiations were pending
for more. Tne prospects of the coke trade
are so favorable, and the tecurity so un
doubted, that these bonds are considered
a gilt-edged investment.
Secretary McVeigh, of the Trnst Com
pany, said yesterday evening: "I have had
my trunk packed for a week to go East to
dispose of these bonds, but I have about
reached the conclusion that the journey will
be unnecessary, as, from the extent of tho de
mand for them, and the inquiries regarding
them, it is almost certain the entire issue will
be marketed here within a few days."
Stocks and oil commenced the week dis
couragingly dull, but they developed a feeling
of stability and confidence sufficient to build
hopes upon of an early improvement. When
any given article is able to sustain itself In the
absence of a buying demand, it affords the best
proof in the world that it possesses enough ot
intrinsic value to protect it against material
depression. That is the condition of stocks
and oil. They are both good properties, and
must grow in demand as the necessities for
their use increase They may be handicapped
by manipulation for a time, but they will
eventually come to the front on their merits
and receive encouragement and support from
The proposition to amend the rules of the
Exchange, so as to allow of tradingin stocks of
future delivery, was disposed of yesterday. In
the shape in which theamendment passed sales
and purchases of all stocks on the ticker-board
may be made deliverable on the second Thurs
day after the transaction. This will give the
brokers ample time to arrange for the transfer
of certificates. The adoption of this amend
ment, though not all they wanted, is considered
quite a victory by the reformers.
Considerable of what has been written of
late in relation to Western realty mortgages is
so one-sided and unsatisfactory as to be under
suspicion of having been inspired by interested
persons. As the subject is one of great inter
est to Eastern capitalists, anything that will
throw light or the manner in which the busi
ness is conducted cannot fail to be read with
interest, and possibly profit. The Record and
Guide, a publication of high standing and
large influence, after full investigation of the
entire subject of Western loans, sums up its
conclusions in the manner following:
On the part of small investors there has long
been a growing distrust of railroad securities
as a source of safe and constant income The
agents of mortgage loan companies have taken
advantage of this to push their wares in the
Eastern markets, and with results not at all
pleasing to those trying to dispose of stocks
and bonds. We believo it is quite generally
admitted that in many of the. Eastern cities
the rate of interest has been very perceptibly
stiffened if not raised by this process
ot raking together the small capi
tals and sending them to the West.
The interests involved are so considerable that
much of the "investigation" on the part of
newspapers and others is undertaken, not to
get the facts, but to prove a point. Bad crops
for a scries of-thraa.years in Western Kansas,
and excessive competition on the part of those
anxious to place loans, have also resulted in
vexatious delays and serious losses, which leads
even disinterested observers to regard Western
securities with disfavor.
The nnmber of companies and persons anx
ious to make loans in the West and to dispose
of their securities in the East is past all esti
mate, but they can be grouped in three general
classes. First, there is a man who acts merely
as the agent for the Eastern money-lender,
placing the loans for a commission, bnt assum
ing no responsibility. A large majority of all the
local attorneys and real estate agents through
out the West do more or less of this sort of
business. It is obvious that lenders ought to
have full assurance of the honesty and
good judgment of such men before re
posing any great confidence in them. Secondly,
there are companies that loan money at their
own risk, deposit the mortgages as collateral,
and issue debenture bonds at a somewhatlower
rate than their own loans aro bringing. Thirdly,
there are the regular loan and investment com
panies, big and little that place loans from
their own capital and then dispose of the orig
inal securities in the East, either with or with
out their added guaranty. Many of these com
panies keep regular traveling men on the road
disposing of securities "by sample" the same as
so much hardware
There are wild-cat loan companies, as there
used to be wild-cat banks. They organize with
little or no capital, push far out on to the fron
tier where the rate of interest is high and the
value of the land uncertain, and thrive mightily
so long as fortune including the crops is
favorable, bnt in the end collapse, leaving in
vestors with nothing but a tangled mass of
claims that are profitable chiefly to the lawyers.
Some entirely responsible companies, however,
have steadily pursued the policy of moving
West, not only to secure the high rate of in
terest, but because the rising value of land in
new districts improves the security each
year that the mortgage runs. Yet it
must always be borne in mind that land values
are much more liable to fluctuate in a new
country than in an old one Even a short
series of bad crops may almost depopulate a
new district and render the land unsalable for.
the time being. It mnst also be remembered
that the foreclosing is usually an expensive

Local Banker Recognize the Improvement
Id the Money Marker.
Business at the banks was "almost satisfac
tory" yesterday. It was in this qualified
phraseology that the gentlemen who handle
the money-bags of Pittsburg recognized the
improvement in financial matters noted last
week: and it was their opinion, from the easy,
natural manner in which it started out, that it
had come to stay. It is already perceptible In
every branch of trade.
Considerable paper was discounted yesterday,
the most of it at 6 per cent, but it was generally
for moderate amounts to be used in strengthen
ing existing enterprises. Expansion will take
place later on. Currency and exchange were
rated about even. There was some scarcity of
the former on Saturday with which to make
up pay rolls, but liberal depositing yesterday
removed the pressure.
A scarcity of fives and tens was noted a few
davs ago. This friction has almost disappeared,
thongh some of the banks sav a larger supply
of these denominations would be convenient.
The accumulation of checks from Saturday
swelled the Clearing House report to good
dimensions, the exchanges footing up 2,193,
703 32 and the balances 8301,077 51.
Money on call at New York yesterday was easy
at 3(94 per cent, last loan 4; closed offered at
4. Prime mercantile paper, 67. Sterling
exchange quiet but steady at S4 81Ji for 60
day bills and S4 83 for demand.

The oil market yesterday was unsatisfactory
to both sides, and was strong and weal by
spells, with very little business and noliews
to sustain or depress prices. The opening
figure was S9Jic, the lowest 99c, and the
closing 99JJc New York sold some and Oil
City and Pittsburg bonght a few email lots.
ome cash sales were made in the forenoon at
09c and in the afternoon at 99c Theresvere
no changes in the general condition of the
market, the dullness being caused by wnt of
business, the outside contingent doing ndibing
but look at the professionals going througl the
customary routine. T
A broker remarked! "There are tivrtt or
ders booked than ever before at tbig season ol
the year within my knowledge. I look for a
big jump in refined one of these days, and then
crude will boo m. This is a good short market,"
in my opinion."

New Yoke, September 9. The stock mar
ket was active in spots to-day, and the strength
displayed was con tin ed to a few stocks, most of
which were what are known as specialties. The
general list was rather quiet and feverish. The
news of the day was meagre and not of a char
acter to have any marked effect upon values,
and the movements were more the consequence
of rumors and special buying, movements than
of any pew developments in either direction.
The bullish feeling was still strong this morn
ing, and London was a heavy buyer of Louis
ville and Nashville and 'Reading, but sold St.
Paul, while Chicago was the chief support of
the Grangers, which were somewhat affected
by the rurnorsif changes in freight rates cir
culated on Baturday.
The opening was very active and stroncr.
with first prices showingadvances extendlng.to
half per cent, and in the early dealings further
70 JsmaU fractional advances were ecored oier thJ
general list. The Northern Pacifies developed
new life on the story that large blocks of the
stock had been transferred to Berlin, where
they will ba listed, and both kinds made
material gains In the first hour, when, however,
the highest prices of the day were reached.
The Coal stocks were quite weak, though
Reading was well held. Louisville and Nash
ville soon became the leading active stock, and
Its advance was most marked, and the large
and persistent buying of the stock made It the
most prominent on the list.
Prices began to settle away toward noon, but
while the changes in the market from weai to
strong and vice versa were sudden and frequent
the fluctuations in all except the leading active
shares and the specialties, which showed
marked strength, were confined as a rule to the
smallest fractions. Toward delivery hour the
realizing became so heavy that a decided de
cline took place and many of tho advances of
the forenoon were wiped out and some stocks
retired to a shade below the first price. The
advances in the specialties, however, were most
marked at this time and Manhattan, Denver,
Texas and Ft, Wortt Oregon Short Line
uubiauooga ana uanaaa jraciuc weru oyowj
The denial of the rumor that there was to be
an increase in the St. Paul dividend on the
Preferred, however, caused a sharp setback for
that stock, and the common sympathized close
ly. The close was active and rather heavy, but
generally at insignificant changes from the
opening prices. The final changes in the gen
eral list are small and about equally divided
between gains and losses, but while St. Paul
preferred is down 2i Chattanooga rose 3, Man
hattan 2, Short Line Manitoba, Louisville and
Nashville and Nickel Plate first preferred ljj

and Ft. Worth 1J.
Railroad bonds were also more activo and
stronger, the tone of the dealings showing a
firm front throughout the day, and the filial
changes aro almost invariably In the direction
of higher figures. The sales of all issues
reached $1,608,000, of which Reading firsts fur
nished 31t6.00a the seconds $110,000, and Ft,
Worth and Denver firsts $140,000.

The McKeesport and Bellevernon Railroad
is finished to Webster, and will be at Bellever
nou by October 1. It is earning expenses and
interest on its $600,000 of bonds with its present
30 miles of track.
Captain J. K. Baebour. of the Pittsburg
Exchange, will leave this morning for Gettys
burg to take part in the soldiers' reunion. He
is a member of the Monumental Committee and
chairman of the Executive Committee of the
Ninth Pennsylvania .deserves. John D. Bailey
will handle the gavel and make the customary
speeches at the Exchange during the captain's
absence, which will be until Saturday.
Henry Clews says of the stock market:
i "In lookingtoward the future the prospects in
many respects are most gratifying and encour-
aging; still there remain some serious draw-
more severely in proportion to our present ex
cess. The rise in stocks, while it may continue,
has been too continuous and prolonged to be
permanent. Reaction is necessary. This fall
the money market is almost sure to be a source
of difficulty, and later on, when Congress opens,
we mnst face renewed tariff discussion, snd a
consequent disturbance to business interests."
BELIEVES MAH0NE IS WEAK.
Congressman O'Ferrnll Thinks the Little
Boss la Maro to bo Brnten.
tive O'Ferrall, of Virginia, one of the
brightest lights of the Old Dominion De
mocracy, stayed in this city last night, on
his way to Bowling Green, to open the cam
paign in Augusta county, and regaled
numerous visitors with his assertions of the
ease with which Mahone would be beaten.
He not only prophesies the certain defeat
of Mahone, but also that such a result will
end his career as a leader. Mr. O'Ferrall
asserts that neither Groner, Cameron, Wise,
Riddleberger.Brad f or either of the Yosts of
the Valley Virginian, will support Mahone,
and these number nearly all of the white
Republican leaders of the State.
He, however, does not depend on Repnb-
ii can disanection tor JHahone s ueieat. Ha
believes this would be accomplished in any
event by Democratic numbers, as Mahone's
nomination has fired the Democratic zeal as
no other could, and will have the effect to
bring ont every vote. O'Ferrall does not
attach much importance to the decision of
Langston, the colored leader, to support Ma
hone, but it is noticeable that this is not as
pleasant a phase of the subject to him as
the disaffection of the white leaders.

A Conple of Counterfeiters Arrested, With

"Washington, September 9. Chief Bell,

Atkins, in San Francisco, yesterday, for
making and passing counterfeit 5 cent

frequently possess a minimum of genuine

A Paper Hill, Founded on a Rack, Loses
Appletok, Wis., September 9. There
was a remarkable occurrence at the mills ot
the Combined Locks Paper Company, at
Combined Locks, fiye miles below Apple
ton, on Saturday. From some unknown
cause there was an upheaval of rock upon,
which the mills are located, throwing the
mill walls out of plnmb, cracking a great
wall of stone and cement 20 feet thick and
making a saddle back several hundred feet
long nnd six inches high in the bedrock
beneath the mill. An artesian weir, 200
feet away on the bluff, was dried up. The
damage to the mill and machinery trill
probably amount to several thousand dol
lars. The Upheaval is thought to have re
sulted from some hydraulic pressure be
tween the seams of rock beneath. A panic
occurred among the mill operatives at the
time of the shakeup, but nobody was hurt
in the stampede from the mill.
Accident at a Ball PIhr.
Havaua, September 9. At Eegla dur
ing the progress of a bull fight yesterday, a
part of the circus suddenly collapsed.
Seven persons were wounded badly.
Few remedies, after 60 years trial and
constant use, retain their position as the
best; yet, such is the case with Dr. D. Jayne's
Tonic Vermiiuge. Whether as a tonic o
strengthener in dyspepsia in adults, or the
indigestion and derangements of the stom
ach in children, it is simply invaluable; and
as a worm remedy, it is one of the most safe
and best. Bold by all druggists.
