Sheep and Lambs in Moderate Supply and Bates Advanced. 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.

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. Keceipts From Chicago, I. Zeigler. 74 head.

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. me leading lutures rangea as roliows SIGNS OF REYIYAL. Scrambling for Lots in a New Plan Opposite' Boulevard Place.

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 as before. 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 counterfeiting. 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 hand." SPECIAL FHATUKES SCAECB, Bnt Locnl Finance Floating Serenely on the lUsluc Tide. 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 not be experienced, according to the direction and volume which .speculation may assume there was a large amount of business in all the regular lines, checking being a strong and dis counting a weak spot. A cashier remarked: jNotwitnstandinga large amount of money has been invested in coke and street railway bonds within a short time, there is plenty of it left, which holders would like to find employ ment for, and which they hope to put on the active list withm the, next month or six w eeks."- 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.

Other Disturbing In fluences Favor the BearsLower 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. Ane Imnresslnn nnilA nnnn thATirii-ASnf tboSO 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 gland was advanced on rumors that the meet ing of the New Haven to-day would result in some scheme by which New England would be a gainer. There was further manipulation of Phoenix mining and.it rose from 65 to 77 and fell back to the opening price. The closo was quiet and weaK generally at the lowest prices of the day. The entire list is lower, but the losses are gen erally f ractional.wbile Oregon Transcontinental lost Vg, Canada Southern and Northern Pacific preferred Vyi each, and Sugar Trust Railroad bonds wero duller than they have been for many days, the sale of all issues ag gregating only 5645,000, while the trading was devoid of special feature of any kind. No de cided tone marked tho dealings and the final changes in most cases are insignificant. Toe rollowlng table snows tne prices oracttve stocks on the Sew York Stock Exchange yester day.

LIMITED TEADIXG IN STOCKS. The Market Thoneh Dull, Shows a DIs ' ponliion to Expnnd. 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 way. 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 tion.

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 of.his most notorious transactions was the sale, about five years ago, of a mine in the Leadville district, which was worth practi cally nothing, to London speculators, lor fcto.uuu or 540,000. Losers sent over to prosecute Pine for the swindle, but it was found that extradition papers could not be obtained on the only charge that could be brought, "obtaining money under false pretenses. Pine has lately made Philadelphia his headqnaiters, and before he was taken sick was to be seen daily about the Girard House. He is now reasonably wealthy. NAGLE IS DISCHARGED.

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."
