Sure Prosperity in Tareulnm,
lie Glass Industry
Bottle, TaWe Ware and Hate Glass Fac
tories Crowded.
Thubsday, September 19. ISS9. J
An interview with a citizen of Tarentnm
to-day developed the fact that this rising
town is rejoicing in unwonted prosperity.
The principal product of the town is glass.
The oldest works in this line are the Flac
ens Bottle "Works, which are at thif time
giving employment to not less than 150 men
and boys. These works are running ti their
full capacity, and are unable to accnpulate
any stock. " Tarentum has, beside this old
time bottle factory, two establishments en
gaged in the manufacture of table glassware,
which are also running to their full capacity,
the two giving employment to almost 300 men
aud boys.
Plate Gin Is Great Dcmnnd.
The plate glass works of Tarentnm, Creigh
ton and Ford City are crowded with orders, and
their product goes ont as fast as it can be
produced. It is only nine years since the pHte
glass industry was inaugurated in this region
under the auspices of Captain J. B. Ford at
Creighton. A second factory started up in a
year or two at Tarentum, and now a third is in
blast at Ford City, a few miles below Kittan
ning. on the Valley road, under the auspices of
the pioneer concern. The new factory has a
capacity equal to those at Tarentum and
Creighton combined, and there are no signs
that the plate glass industry is overdone.
When the first plate glass was made at Creigh-
"tnn nlinnttlmtinianr fSsrfiMrTK inauguration.
the price paid here for high grades was 2 25
per square foot,
A Wondrrfnl Difference
Now, a very superior quality, which is found
good enoughfor our finest display windows, is
furnished at SO cents per foot. Ten years ago
the principal portion or the plate glass used in
this city was imported. Sow. more than one
half ishomemade, and the consumption has
verr grcjtly increased ia that time.
From present outlook. Tarentum will, ere
long, like Braddock. McKeesport, Mansfield
and Homestead, arise to the proportions of a
city. Pittsburg's surrounding towns, like their
source and center, are at this date passing
through a season of unusual prosperity. It is
doubtful if there ever was a time when the
prosperity of this citj's bailiwick was as sub
stantial as it is right now. Merchants, manu
facturers and farmers all uuite in bearing testi
mony to the fact that times arc good, and the
outlook was never better. There is certainly
no inter of discontent facing our people at
this time.
East Liberty's Livo Stock.
The reported sales of prime cattle at the
East Liberty yards, in this morning's Dis
patch, should have been iiz instead of 4Jc.
The former figure was the highest obtained at
these yards this week.
The supply ot sheep, as the report below will
disclose, was larger than for a few weeks past,
but prices were fully sustained as compared
with a week ago.
The strong bog market of Monday and Tues
day collapsed yesterday, and prices were off 23c
per cwt owinc to liberal receipts.
It does not require many days to correct any
shortage in the line of hogs. The quality of
recent supplies is not good. Too many grassers
are thrown on the market at this time of the

A Flurry in tlio" Wheat Pit-Bullish few

Active but Bower-Onls TJn-cbnugcd-Pork
Chicago Interest in the wheat market
to-day continued unabated. The bullish
feeling recently shown by local operators
was of a mory 'pronounced character to-day
than has yet been witnessed, and during the
latter part ofthe session trading was heavy,
accompanied'by considerable excitement. Re
ceipts at this point were slightly below the
estimates and graded as poorly as ever, and it
is the prevailing opinion among receiving
houses that there is not likely to be any in
crease in the percentage of No. 2 in the near
Bull news again predominated, and in fact
about the only favorable circumstance to which
the bears could point was the continued light
outward movement from seaboard ports. As
an offset to this poor showing, however, is the
fact that exporters have been bidding higher
prices for wheat in Western markets for the
past two days. Twenty-two thousand bushels
of No. 2 spnng was worked here to-day, and
some house took 50,000 bushels of No. 1 hard in
Duluth. One report from there said 100,000
bushels had been sold. News from abroad was
all favorable for holders.
The opening here was Kc off for the leading
futures, and under a strong selling pressure
early the market receded lc more, but the
scalping crowd found the odds against them,
and after realizing by local and St. Louis longs
was over prices started up with nnmistakeable
indications of inherent strength in the market.
From inside flcures there was an advance of
??8C,and final closings showed a net gain
for the day of Jc in December and May and
K6?ic in other deliveries.
An active speculative business was trans
acted in corn, and the feeling developed was
easier, the bulk of the trading being at lower
prices. The frosts predicted for last night did
not materialize, and as the weather was more
favorable the market opened heavy a shade
nnrinr vi'-Sterdav's closing nrinnft. and onder
free offerings declined c, longs selling
ont and hhorts covering and putting out fresh
lines. A feature to-day was the rather free
selling of the near futures aud buying of May
by a prominent local trader, which widened
the difference between the near and off futures
about Jc more than yesterday. The market
closed 45jjC lower than yesterday.
Oats were quiet and steady and without new
features of interest. There was a fair number
of orders on the market to buy on any decline,
but the limited offerings prevented more than
iic change in prices.
The mess pork market attracted little atten
tion, and trading was rather light and chiefly
in small quantities. Prices rather favored
A very quiet feeling prevailed in the lard
market, and trading was light.

was very good in all departments, and the com

transactions indicated a decidedly improving
tendency. Cotton goods and woolen fabrics
for jobbers were in more general request, and
there was a better feeline. The tone ot the

A gentleman called on Samuel "W. Black
& Cs. yesterday with a view to renting a
warehouse for mercantile purposes, but the
firm was not only unable to supply his
want, bat was at a loss where to direct him
for such a building. This indicates that
things are unusually, active in Pittsburg,
where business property is practically all
occupied. Capitalists who want their
money employed would make a strike by
purchasing property on downtown streets
which have old or small, cheap buildings,
and putting up new ones of a size and style
to suit present business requirements.
This is not the only failure to secure a
business stand that has occurred here lately.
The supplying of this want would not only be a
good investment, but It would bring large
amounts of money to Pittsburg which other
wise will go elsewhere.
It may not be generally known. that there are
very few small or medium-sized houses for rent
in Pittsburg, but such is the fact. W. A. Her
ron 4 Sons, C. H. Love, Black fc Baird, Berin
ger & Son, Samuel W. Black & Co. and others
who make a specialty of renting, concurin say
ing that the demand is larger than the supply.
The "to let" lists in the city papers are very
small. There is no apparent scarcity of large
bouses, but those of four or Ave rooms, suit
able for small families of moderate means are
at a premium. This unusual demand so late in
the season comes from people who have lately
arrived in tbe city, having been attracted
bitherbythe renewal of industrial activity.
Some have come from Chicago, some from Cin
cinnati, and others from various places east
and west.
They are for tbe most part skilled workmen
In their various avocations, and possess all the
qualifications or good citizens. Their retention
is desirable. But if they are unable to obtain
houses at a moderate rental in which to live,
they will have no alternative but to shake the
dust of Pittsburg from their feet and make
their homes in some other locality. This is a
matter of great impottance to Pittsburg, and
a remedy for the complaint should be devised
as speedily as possible, it does not speak well
,for local capitalists that intelligent, industrious
people should be dnven away by their inability
to obtain suitable houses to live in.
Country people appear to have a false im
pression as to the rates for money in this city.
Said a member ot tbe firm of W. A. Herron &
Co. yesterday: "A gentleman who lives in a
neighboring town came to me the other day to
find out the terms upon which he could place a
mortgage for So, 000. I asked him what rate he
expected to get. He replied about 4. I told
him that I"Could not accommodate him on such
terms; that there was considerable Eastern
money floating around which was offered at his
figure, but it was limited to gilt-edged city
property; but even it was being withdrawn
owing to the extra legal fees it involved. I ad
vised him to apply to Philadelphia. So far as I
know he did not get the money. Country peo
ple should remember that with the improved
demand for money rates have hardened. The
banks are putting out very little under 6.

Financial matters moved along smoothly and

but their favors were small. They had to pay

from a bank under 6, though there are occa
sional exceptions. ,

Mr. Carnegie's optimistic view of the busi
ness situation and ontlook is received with
favor by Pittsburg business men, so far as they
have expressed themselves on the subject.
Said one nf them yesterday: "Mr. Carnegie is
long-headed and a close observer. He is called
visionary by some, because in many things he
is in advance of the age. I have no doubt he
.had good reasons for predicting a long term of
business activity. It agrees with my views pre
cisely. If there is any obstruction in the way
I have failed to see it."
Another remarked: "I presume Mr. Carnegie
bases bis expectations of business activity
npon tbe big crops. In this be cannot be mis
taken. They lie at the root of all our indus
tries. Good crops always mean good times.
They keep tbe iron mills at work, they keep
the railroads moving, they build houses, make
money plenty and cheap. In short, the crops
are the mainstay of our industrial fabric Be
ing nn usually prolific this year, I can see noth
ing to prevent an active business season. If
Congress be wise when it convenes it will let
the tariff alone, but I hardly dare hope for so
much. That is the only cloud on the horizon
that I can discern."
The demand for finished iron is still active,
but there Is not so much of a rush for it as
tbere'was two or three weeks ago, indicating
that the trade is prettv well stocked up. The
jiipe men, at their meeting in this city, made a
few immaterial changes to equalize the list,
but discounts remain the same as before. Tbe
pipe mills are all busy, with orders for two or
three months ahead. Orders for delivery be
fore November are refused. Metal is steady at
former quotations.
Government bonds dull and barely steady.
State bonds dull and firm.

Butler's Thrust nt Forney Descriptive of the
Oil Market.
There was next to no oil market yesterday.
The range of prices being of a cent and no
speculative interest whatever. Tbe .opening
and highest was 100, and the lowest and
closing 100. There was no trading to speak ot
here or anywhere else.
What little field news there was, was bearish,
but very little attention was paid to it; for
what do conditions amonnt to without business?
A man sick unto death is not very choice about
his food. Wednesday's clearings were 388,000
barrels. Those of yesteiday were much less.

The Horse Started Too Soon, nnd Sevcrnl
Persons Were Injured.
Last week a number- of persons were
slightly injured in consequence of a run
away. Mrs. 'William ToEel, who keeps a
grocery store on Boyd's Hill, was standing
in front of her establishment bargaining
with a huckster. In order to see tbe goods
Jn his wagon more plainly, -he stood on the
hub of the front wheel, and her little grand
son, a boy of abont 7 years, imitated her by
climbing on the one in tbe rear.
The horse had been taught to start ofTtlin
moment he heard his driver steppinc on tbe
wagon, and hearing tbe noise behind him
he probably thourht that it was time for
hira to go. He started at a brisk pace
threw the little lellowoffthe wagon into the
mud, and overtprniDg the driver left him
standing on his head. Mrs. Vogel, how
ever, was hurled off the wheel, and in fall
ing her arm caught in the spokes, and after
it had been whirled around several times
wa3 severely injured by having the rear
wheel pass over it. Her escape from death
was miraculous, and indeed, although her
arm was not broken, it was so badly injured
that she has been on the sick list ever since.
Her lather, unold man of abont 89 years
of age, witnessed the accident, and was so
badly frightened that he has been nnable to
recover from the shock. All of them, how
ever, are bow doing well.
Good Trndlnc . r.eading Locnl Securities
Philadelphia Gns Ilaminered,
That there is a growing interest in local
securities is evident to even a blind man. A
broker emphasized this fact yesterday when he
said: "I am glad business is picking up. I
think we can soon afford to smoke better
cigars," The sales were 362 shares.
The feature of the day was tbe hammering
of Philadelphia Gas by W. I. Mnstin down to
36K. It closed at 36. This is an indication
that tbe loss of business by the establishment
of independent lines is more serious than has
been expected. Forest Oil was boomed to 110,
without offers, on tbe propect of an extra
dividend. There is verv little of It on thn mir.

The close was lively, with confidence a strong

Atthe morning call, 100 shares of Pittsburg
And Fear of Tleht Monej Depress the
Valnes of Rnilroad Shares A Better
Feeling Toward the Close and
Losses Pnrtly Recovered
Bonds Dull.
New Yobk, September 19. The lato rate
cutting in the West, together with the con
tinued fear of tight money, still keep tbe stck
market dull, and the transactions were stiU
smaller than on any day of tbe present week.
For the most nart it was a traders' market
pure and simple, and in tbe absence of any im
portant influence to affect the course of prices
they were churned np and down over a narrow
range, the fluctuations'in tbe great majority of
the list possessing little or no significance.
4 The heaviness in the market late yesterday,
with the news mat more roaas uaa Joined tbe
Chicago, Burlington and Northern In its reduc
tion of rates caused a weak and lower opening,
though the concessions were small fractions
only, led by Louisville and Nashville, which,
together with St. Paul, were sold by the for
eigners. The coal stocks were the .strong features of
the day, aud after the opening the temper of
tbe speculation changed completely, Tennessee
Coal and Jersey Central leading an upward
movement which extended to 1 per cent in
Jersey and 2 per cent in Tennessee Coal, though
the improvement in others was but fractional.
This rise was the result of rumors of an advance
in prices of coal at the next meeting of the
trade representatives and a scarcity of cj.rs to
handle the present traffic
The hardening of the money ratpn m hero
worked by the bears, and mot of the list was
again carried down to a shade below tbe open
ing figures before noon. The report of the
f nrtber issue of 65,000 shares of Richmond and
West Point common stock to pay for 20.0U0 ad
ditional shares of East Tennessee preferred
caused considerable selling of Terminal, and it
broke 1J per cent to 22. The rest of the list
was carried down with this decline, bnt later
there were rumors of the offerings of largo
blocks of bonds to the Treasury, while rates
for both money and exchange eased up. and in
the last hour Reading led an advance, reaching
47. The market closed dull, but firm, at
something better than opening figures. The
final changes are generally fractional advances,
the declines being few in number, while Ten
nessee Coal is up 1& and Colorado Coal and
Reading each 1 per cent.
Railroad bonds were dull, tbe sales of all
Issues being only 4703,000, which was very
evenly distributed among the moderate num
ber of issues traded In. The dealings through
out were entirely devoid of feature, while the
tone was steady. A few important changes
were xnaao Reuerauy amuae inactive oonus.
