10'CAL LIVE STOCK.
Leadin? Features of the Week's Mar
kets at Berr's Island.
HEAVY CATTLE RUX, PRICES FIRM.
Sheep and Lambs in Moderate Supply and
HOGS GO SLOW AT FORMER PRICES
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch,
Monday, September 16, 1SS9.
The run of cattle and boss was large, and
quality was scarcely up to average. Mar
kets were slow at a shade lower prices on
all stock but sheep and lambs, which were
not in large supply.
Some dealers report an advance on last
Monday's prices of 10 to 15c per cwt. on
good butcber stock. Percontra, a Diamond
market butcher reports that he bought
lower this week than last, and that prices
were lower at Chicago. According to his
report, the best price realized for prime
beeves was $4 75. Others report as follows:
Prime heavy estern beces, weighing 1.500 to
1,000 pounds. SliJJtoSo 10; medium weights.

Hogs in Good Supply.
The supply was an average one for the
season of the year, but quality was scarcely up
to standard, as grassers abound ar this time.
The best hogs that come to our markets at
this time are those which come from the farth
est west, where corn abounds. Those raised in
this section do not usually receive a sufficient
quantity of giain. and this fact shows itself in
the great shrinkage and lower grade of pork.
Toe demand lor good corn fed hogs was good,
aud markets were active, at a range of $1 25
4 50 for Pennsylvania's, and 51 604 75 forOhio
and Chicago hogs.

A Tumble in the Wheat Pit. Wblcli Nnr
rowly Escaped Being a Bad Break
Corn Lower and Oats Easier
II or Product Slroneor.
ClllCAGa The wheat market was rather
dnll to-day, and for a greater portion of
the session the feeling was weak. Bear sen
timent seemed to predominate toward the
cloje. in fact, and as a result of the das's oper
ations a net loss in futures of H&i was estab
lished. In the trading pit the cro d felt pretty
friendly to wheat at the opening, and in the
early dealings prices moved up KKC- Tho
feeling of strength soon gave way to one of
decided weakness, and for the remainder of
the session the bears w ere on top.
That there was not a pretty sharp break in
values was probably due to the uarrowness of
the market and to the very good buying by a
prominent local operator when the market was
dragging around the bottom. This same
operator was the largest seller to-day of year
wheat, it was said, on the floor. The North
west sold considerable May here, and news
from that part of the country was less bullish.
New York gossip was bearish, but operators
there were said to be conservatively inclined,
owing to the poor grading of the receipts.
A good trade was witnessed in corn, and the
feeling prevailing was but a continuation of
that developed the latter part of last weeK,
transactions being at still lower pnCes. The
speculative market opened heavy at Satur
day's closing prices, and under fiee offerings
declined y,&c the now crop futures showing
the greatest weakness ino mancei men
ruled quiet and irregular, closing w ith the near
futures c and the distant deliveries
yjz lower than Saturday.
The near futures in oats were quiet and
easier. Slay was active, weaker and prices de
clined Jc. "Longs were free sellers. Consider
able short selling was also indulged in, and the
leeling most or the session was heavy.
Rather more strength was developed in pork
and prices ruled higher, especially for the near
deliveries. Shorts bought a few lots, and as
tneolfeiings were small they were compelled
to adance their views 2Sg35c Dorerred de
liveries were sti oncer and nrices were slightly
advanced, but not tully Supported.
Only a small trade was reported in the lard
market, aud the feeling was stronger. Prices
ruled about 2c higncr, but not fully supported
to the close.
A little more interest was manifested in the
market for short ribs, and tradimr was a little
more active. Prices ruled 25c higher, and
the market closed comparatively steady.

That remedy is cheapest that proves
most effective, irrespective of price. Judged
by this standard as a worm remedy and
child's tonic Dr. D. Jayne's Tonjc Vermi
fuge is unequalled. It rids the child of
worms, aud by its tonic powers restores
strength and vigor to the young and old;
the latter a quality not usually possessed bj
worm remedies. Sold by all druggists.
There is considerable inquiry for lots in
the plan just opened opposite Boulevard
place, fronting on Fifth avenue extension.
The location is admirable both for residence
and business, being convenient to street and
steam cars. Three gentlemen began nego
tiations yesterday for a block of seven lots
in this plan, which will probably result in
a deal to-day.
Another feature of the real estate busi
ness, developed yesterday, is a renewal of
the inquiry for residence and business
property outWylie avenue, the opinion
that the cable line will depress values on
that thoroughfare finding but little favor with
investors, ft may injure a certain class of
traders at first, but the novelty will soon wear
off and buyers will patronize local merchants
The only effect the road will have on realty,
according to-good judges, will be to enhance its
value by making it easier of access, and there
fore more desirable.
A largo amount of counterfeit money is in
circulation, principally in the West, but occa-
sionally it turns up in Pittsburg. Thesilver cer
tificate 55, series of 1886, and the 510, series of
1875, seem to be most abundant. Attention was
directed to the latter in this department a few
days ago. The fact which makes this latest
flood of counterfeit money so exceedingly
bothersome is that, according to bank officials,
it is almost an impossibility for any one other
than an expert to detect it. For once the mat
ter of giving some particular point which may
be referred to instantly or even with the most
careful study, and be depended upon as infalli
ble in distinguishing the good from the bad, is
impossible, so remarkable is this latest job of
The nearest to a rule given by experts is that
on all genuine bills, of any and all denomina
tions, the scroll will always and never failingly
be found absolutely true. Rivet the eye on
any une scroll line, and slowly follow it out. It
there is the slightest flaw as it winds about,
then there are 93 chances to 1 that the bill is a
counterfeit, add especially if the flaw in its
graceful sweep is particularly noticeable. This
test has been pronounced the only absolutely
infallible one by the Treasury Department.
Tho progress of electric street railways in
the United States is remarkable, there being
at present a greater number than in Europe,
although the system is older there than here.
Three years ago only one or two roads were in
regular operation in America, though a num
ber of experimental lines bad been running for
brief periods at country fairs and the like, A
year ago there were 32 completed roads, aggre
gating in length 13S miles, with 233 motor cars.
At that date 49 roads were in process of con
struction, and a number of others had been in
corporated. Probably tho most extensive of
these is that at Richmond, Ya., using the
Sprague system. This company has constructed
roads in Wilmington, Hartford, Salem, Wilkes
barre, Harrisburg and other cities.
The Thomson-Houston Company's system is
used in and near Boston, in Scranton, Pa., and
on several other roads scattered over the coun
try. Tho Daft Company's system is used in
Baltimore, Ninth avenue, New York; Pitts
burg, Asbury Park, Meriden, Los Angeles and
Brussels, Belgium. The list of roads given
above does not include by any means all tho
lines and companies now using the electric
motor, nor those commenced within the year,
several of which are in Pittsburg.
A representative of the drygoods trade who
had jnst returned from New York remarked
yesterday: -'Large stocks of print cloths have
caused some weakness in prices. There is an
active demand for dress goods, but woolens are
pretty well under control, the fall demand hav
ing been to a great extent supplied. I attended
the auction sales of flannels and blankets last
week. There was a good demand at conces
sions in prices, rangiug from 6 to 8 per cent be
low quotations in a regular way. The trade
here is very active."
In a table showing net railway earnings for
July, the Pittsburg and Western (whole sys
tem) is credited with a gain ot 577,562 over the
corresponding month of 1888. Other gains
were: Bnrlington and Quincy, 5550,148 on the
lines directly operated, and 572,553 for the lines
controlled. The new Big Four combination in
creased its net from 5220.053 in 1883 to 311,597 in
18S9, the Louisville and Nashville from 5479,5y9
to 5559,346, the Northern Pacific from 5666,182
to $782,929, the Rome, Watertown aud OgdenV
burg from $128,901 to 5156,738. the Rio Grande
Western from 519,802 to 568,554. and the Ohio
River from 516,872 to 528,483. These are roads
in widely separated districts, and yet they all
tell the same story.
Vice President McCullough, of the Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company, said in New York on
Saturday: "The railroads are making fabu
lous earnings: in fact, the statements submitted
do not show exactly how extensive a business
they are doing. There is absolutely no reason
why they should not all make plenty of money,
and they doubtless will do so this fall und win
ter. A few months ago, when business was
particularly bad forsome of the roads, they,
managed to keep up a cheerful appearance,
and their statements did not absolutely reflect
the losses which tbey were making, any more
than the statements now coming to hand
clearly demonstrate how excellently well the
majority of the lines are panning out. Every
thing looks prosperous, and for the next few
months at least we may look for even improved
results over those which have recently come to

The local money market opened up yesterday
without a flourishing of trumpets or any other
peculiar demonstration to denote that it was
floating flood high. But while there were, no
special features not previously noted no un
usual inflow or outflow, nor newly-fledged ap
prehensions of stringency, which may or may

there was a large amount of business in all the

The extremes for commercial paper are 6 and
7 per cent. It is doubtful if any of the bank
are doing anything below 6, but outsiders still
take 5 and thereabouts on realty. The liberal
use or silver dollars serves to minimize the cur
rency famine, which owes Its origin to heavy
shipments to the South. The Clearing House
report was well up, showing a heavy movement
of staples, the speculative interest, except in
realty, being an insignificant factor. The ex

Prices Scared nil Over the List.
New Yoek, September 16. The stock mar
ket to-day was weak and declining from open
ing to close, and tc-nlght everything is lower,
though the important concessions .are not
specially numerous. The action of the other
St. Paul lines in meeting promptly the cut by
the Chicago, Burlington ai-d Northern,' to
gether with the assertions from Chicago that
the cuts would go farther, created a decidedly
bearish feeling among the professional ele;
ment, and in the absence of buying for long
account, vigorous efforts were made to get the
list down. The selling apparently began in
London, as the figures from the center" wero
materially lower this morning, though there
was no selling of importance for foreign ac
count in this market. First prices here were
from l4 topper cent lower than Saturday's
closing figures, and the pressure upon the
"rangers was pretty severe in the early trading.

shares, however, was in no cases measured by
more than a fraction. There was considerable
strength in Louisville and Nashville and New
England, the prospects of an early completion
of the connection with the Norfolk and West
ern helping the former. Tho impression made
upon the general list was fractional only In the
forenoon, but later the closing of the Northern
Pacific books this evening led to selling of that
stock and a material decline followed, while
sales for cash at a small advance on the regu
lar way. A rumor was circulated that Sugar
Trust had a bonded Indebtedness of 516,000,000
ahead of the stock and this led to a sharp drop
of 3 per cent in that, though most of the loss
was afterward recovered. Oregon Transconti
nental, while not active, was weak in sympathy
with Northern Pacific, and is one of the few
stocks showing a material decline this evening.
The later decline was sympathized in by the
general list to a greater extent than the earlier
one and the weakness became more pro
nounced as the day wore along. Norfolk and
Western was a marked exception to the rule,
being helped by the same Influence which ad
vanced Louisville and Nashville. New En

Oil opened at 51 00 yesterday, and on a buy

der attempts to realize, it tumbled to the
opening figure. Oil City then tnrned buyer, un
der the influence of which there was a rally of
of a cent, at which the market closed. The
early strength seemed to come from tho Eastj

There was more noise here than business.

scampered off to the pit and "made Rome

Only three stocks were dealt in on call yester
day, the sales of which were 115 shares. While
business was dull, the interest taken by brokers
was significant of their belief in a reaction.
Electric showed signs of returning activity, the
bullish feature being plenty of business and ex
pectation of a favorable decision from Wash
ington, which is about due. There was more
inquiry for Philadelphia Gas. bnt as this is
common on the approach of the dividend
period, it occasioned verylittle remark. It was
not pressed for sale. Yankee Girl received con
siderable attention, 4 being bid without re
sponse. LaNoria showed no material change
and there was no anxiety in regard to it either
People's Pipeage and Switch and Signal were
the strongest properties, both scoring advance
which widened the gap between buers and
sellers. As tho business upon which these
stocks are based Is in a flourishing condition
concessions are likelv to be refused. A bid of
3 failed to secure 500 shares of Central Trac

CANNOT CHEAT DEATH.
A Famous Confidence Man on His Death
Bed nt Denver.
Denver, September 16. Frank Fine,
who is known all over Europe and the
United States as one of the smoothest con
fidence men in the business, is at the
Windsor Hotel in this city at the point of
death. He has been reduced to a mere
skeleton by an enlargement of the spleen,
which hinders the action of the heart, and
will cause death in a short time. Frank
Pine is a Frenchman, and is noted for his
gentlemanly appearance and manners. One

Sugars are very firm. The expected rise in
package coffee has failed as yet to materialize,
but cannot be far away from present outlook.
Following is an item from a reliable source on
the grocery situation In New York City:
"The grocery trade is in an infinitely better
condition this year than it was last, and collec
tions were never better. There is a good
healthy demand for money, but the purchasing
power for our staples and fine articles through-.
f- out the country was never as great as it is now.
And the promises of a rich harvest are abun
dant. The movement in our line of business
gives a fair insight as to what other trades
must be doing, and I am satisfied that taking
groceries as a criterion, the staple industries of
the country must be in a most flourishing con
dition." Green Coffee Fancy Bio. 22J23Kc:
