A General Upward Drift in Frnit
and Vegetable Lines.
Melons Ont, Peaches Hearing the End,
Grapes Abounding.
Friday, September 20, 1SS9. i
Materials for the market basket have un
dergone very few changes since last Satur
day. The weather has not been favorable
the past few days to active markets at
fruit and vegetable stalls. Dealers com
plain that trade has been slow all the week,
but have large hopes of a bright Saturday.
There is a general upward drift of prices in
fruit and vegetable lines, but not sufficient
to make any decided changes in retail markets.
Potatoes and tomatoes are higher in a jobbing
Prncbes Still Scarce
Choice peaches are not to be had and their
day is practically over for this season. Melons
are among the things that were. Grapes are
plenty and a shade lower in price.
The supply of poultry is scarcely up to the
demand, and markets arc growing firmer.
Throughout this section poultry is reported
unusually scarce this fall. Our dealers are
mainly dependent on the far West for supplies
in this line.
Butter is on the advance. The price of
creamery was advanced 2c at Elgin Monday
and 2c the previous week.
Staple meats change not Prime beeves were
sold at East Liberty this week by the carload
for iic a price 2c belowwhatthe same would
have brought about a year ago. There is no
change in the price of fancy cuts of beef,
though the rough portions are some lower.
Everybody Warts Fish.
It has been next to impossible to meet the
demand for fish since the great storms visited
the Eastern shores some ten days ago. A lead
ing dealer reported to-day that he could sell
double the quantitj bo has been able to procure
in some lines of ocean products. Retail prices
have stiffened up a little, but the heavy ad
vance has been to the wholesaler, who must
mv increased rates at the sources of supply in
order to secure the goodi.
Following arc the retail prices of materials
for Saturday's market basket as furnished by
leading dealers:
The best cuts of tenderloin steak range
from 20 to 25c, with last figure for very
fancy, which are very often no better

Chicago To-day's receipts of wheat over
ran the estimate a little, but out of the 171 cars
reported not a bushel graded No. 2. This re
markable showing for the season, together
with the posting of unusually large flour ex
ports at Baltimore, set the pace for another
bull turn in the pit. Opening figures for the
leading futures were i?c above yesterday's
closings, with September 5Jc higher. Decem
ber and May, in which most of the trading was
done, eased offjc and then advanced irregu
larly ir, December selling up to 80c and May
to 8484Kc. A large business was transacted
on the advance.
Shorts covered freely, and coupled with the
demand from this quarter, which was large,
and general buying by local houses, the market
weakened a fraction. It was further de
pressed just before the close by the se'ling of
500,000 December in large blocks at 79cbya
heavy old bear operator who has been out of
the market for some time. The close was
weak with the early advance all lost. The
latest quotations was Kc and Ha below those
of yesterday.
A very good business transacted in corn, the
market ruling active at times. The feeling
early was firm, but as the session advanced a
weaker tone was developed and trading was at
lower prices. The market opened firm at yes
terday closing prices, influenced mainly by
the advance in wheat, and prices advanced
JQiC but when the estimates for to-morrow
became known offerings became heavy and
prices declined & ruled easy and closed
iH" lower than jesterday.
Trading was a little more animated in oats,
to-day a firmer feeling prevailing early. Later,
however, the demand fell off, the market be
came weak and prices receded. May received
the most attention, and fluctuated 4C.
Trading in pork was a little more active and
the feeling was somewhat unsettled. Near
deliveries were easy, early and declined
2535c but rallied again and closed steady.
An unusually quiet feeling prevailed in lard.
Offerings were small on speculative account,
and tbe demand was limited.
Trading was only moderate in short ribs.
Near deliveries were easy, early and prices
receded 2M5c but rallied to medium fieures
and closed steady. Deferred deliveries were
rather quiet at former prices.

Impressions of a Pittsburger Jnst
Returned From Philadelphia.
Supplying People With Homes at the Sate
of Three Thousand a Year.
The points brought out in the following
interview with a member of a leading real
estate agency on Fourth avenue are in line,
mainly with considerable on tbe same sub
ject that has appeared from time to time in
The Dispatch. He had just returned
from tbe East where he had been making ar
rangements for a supply of Eastern capital.
Asked his opinion of medium-sized houses as an
investment, he said:
"Pittsburg people, as a nilo, call Philadelphia
a slow city. She may be'auiet, but is not slow
by any means, especially in providing homes.
lor the middle and laboring classes of people.
Her apparent slowness and easy manner of get
ting along result from the method of living of
her Industrial population. Any family that
wishes to can have a home of its own, and as
every man's home is his castle, he stays
there when otherwise unemployed, to
protect It and derive enjoyment from
it. Take the northwestern part of Philadel
phia as an example. Blocks upon blocks of
houses are going up, built in good style, with
the best workmanship and materials, finely fin
ished, each apartment containing six to nine
rooms and on good streets.
"A man who lives in his own house takes
pleasure in fixing it up, and works far more
willingly and steadily than if, when his day's
work was done, he went home to a tenement
where every step on the bare entry and hall
way caused a feeling of revulsion, as if he
would like to go away and never return, and
where, no matter how refined in taste and tidy
the wife may be, she cannot make the place
look cheerful and homelike. The result is, in
most cases, that the family settle down in a
state of hopeless indifference and end their
days in poverty and misery. Man needs a spur
to enable him to nse above his surroundings,
and nothing serves this purpose better than
the ownership of a home."
"How does Pittsburg compare with Philadel
phia as a city of homes?"
"lam coming to that point. Our local pa
pers speak highly of the great -vperation going
on out Fifth avenue, near Oakland, and in
other districts but in this connection I refer
especially to the former where one of our
enterprising citizens good luck to him has
begun the erection of a large number of dwell
ings. But what wonld they think of taking out
6,300 permits for houses in one year and putting
them up in blocks of 200 or 500 at a timer
About 10,000 marriage licenses were issued In
Philadelphia last year. With tbe large propor
tion of newly-married people who go to house
keeping, and the increase by Immigration,
Philadelphia requires over 3,000 houses a year to
accommodate the increased population. The
number of houses erected there during the
year shows no overplus. They are all oc
cupied." "How do Pittsburg contractors' charges com
pare with those of Philadelphia?"
"So far as I have learned they are considera
bly higher. A certain lady who owns property
in Pittsburg, but lives in Philadelphia, expects
to send a Philadelphia contractor here to put
up a number of buildings for her in Philadel
phia style, and at a cost, she claims, of about
one-third less than Pittsburg contractors want
to charge her. Why is this? I don't under
stand it. Are there not large tracts of vacant
land here within easy access ot the business
portion of the city, and have we not enterpris
ing contractors, with ample means back of
'them, to push and carry to completion any
building operation they may be required to un
dertake? Then why cannot we have enough
homes for our working people? Pittsburg
capitalists and contractors, although liberal
and enterprising, could learn much by studying
the methods of their Philadelphia brethren."
A word of explanation, seems necessary to
relieve Pittsburg contractors from the implied
censure in the foregoing. If business were of
the same magnitude, and subject to the same
liberal conditions as that of Philadelphia con
tractors, there is no ground for supposing
charges would be higher. As it is, Pittsburg

Regarding the development of the coal and
coke of the West Virginia district along tbe
Baltimore and Ohio road, the Iron Trade Re
view says: "Ohio f umacemen, especially in the
Cincinnati, Hocking and Eastern Ohio dis
tricts, are particularly interested in these
movements. With direct running connections
made with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad,
the Virginia coke will soon find its way North
ward, crossing tbe Ohio river at Parkersburg
and Wheeling, by the former route reaching
Southern Ohio and Cincinnati consumers, by
the latter Cleveland and other lake ports.
"It is an open secret that the Baltimore and
Ohio is working for a Cleveland connection,
and tbe Ohio river extensions ot the Valley and
the Cleveland, Canton and Southern roads, will
afford ample opportunity for favorable arrange
ments. The connection with the Hocking
Valley furnaces, by way of Parkersburg, will
also be direct. That the new region, once
opened up, will produce decided changes in the
coke markets of Ohio and tbe Northwest,
there can be no doubt Certainly furnacemen
will hail with pleasure the advent of so formid
able a rival of the famous Connellsville coke
According to the German Trade Review, of
Berlin, a very remarkable profit-sharing ar
rangement has been made in the engineering
works of G. A Schutz, in that city. This gen
tleman, it appears, has placed 5 per cent on the
amount of their annual wages in the local sav
ings bank to the credit of all those who have
worked in his establishment uninterruptedly
during a space of fivo years, ending July, and
for all others be has paid 3 per cent into the
savings bank. These payments will be con
tinued each year, and at the end of five years,
thus, in 1S94, each person will have tbe right to
withdraw the sum standing in his name, to
gether with the interest. Sickness and mill
tary service will not be regarded as interrup
tions in tbe employment. In case of death the
relatives will receive the amount paid in. Mr.
Schutz evidently desires by these 'means to re
tain in his establishment a body of trustworthy
Stock Trading Very Light Philadelphia
Gas Still Progressing Backward.
Business was rather slow at the Stock Ex
change yesterday. Therewas a fair demand for
securities, but at prices a shade below the mar
ket and In nearly every case concessions were
refused. The sales were 315 shares, of which
300 were Philadelphia Gas. It was hammered
down to 86, but firmed up a little before the
close. A small lot of Western Insurance Com
pany stock found a buyefAt5 the first move

With Business nt tbe Banks The Monetary
Situation Sinking Fund.
Checking to make up pay rolls was good
yesterday, but bankers reported other lines
rather slow, especially discounting, although
it was better than at the beginning of the
month. Something is done in this line every
day, whereas formerly the demand for loans
was fitful and erratic, with nothing doing for
days together. The currency pressure is easing
up, and the silver dollar is less nimble than a
few days ago. The weather was agaipst busi
ness, but a return of clear skies, with a sug
gestion of frost in the atmosphere, will make
people feel like taking hold with a vim and
"push things," as General Grant instructed
Sheridan to do in the valley. The clearings
were S2.228.551 00 and the balances (110,419 92.
The Wall Street Sews ot yesterday remarks:
"Most of the traders who take a sensational if
not a lugubrious view of the monetary situa
tion are inclined to look for the wiping out of
the reserves in Saturday's bank statement, A
representative of this paper, in order to probe
the true condition of affairs, bad interviews
with most of the presidents of the down town
national banks yesterday, and found that while
the situation might. In bearish quarters, be
considered strained, it is by no means ominous.
The banks will not lose any S6.000.000 this week,
as has been reported, and even though tbe re
serves should cet down to the legal require
ment mark no danger need be apprehended,
because prompt action Is sure to be taken by
the Washington officials, and money on call
probably wilfnot rise above 6 per cent Time
funds are still offered at the low rates notice
able during the past week or two, and consid
ering the healthy demand for money in all
legitimate business circles, 6 per cent for the
time being can neither be regarded as phenome
nal or even unusual.
"A telegram from Washington says that the
estimated requirements of the sinking fund for
the present fiscal year are $43,000,000. The toUl
amount already applied to this purpose since
the beginning of tbe fiscal year by the purchase
of bonds is 532.940,578. The principal of these
bonds was $27,237,600, and the premium pail
85,702.973. The expenditures on acconnt of the
bonds included S24.257.511 tor SI9.053.530 4 per
cents, and SS.683,032 for S8.184.250 4)4 per cents.
There is yet about $15,000,000 required for sink
ing fund purposes."
Money on call at New York yesterday was easy
at 45m per cent, last loan 4, closed offered
at 4. Prime mercantile paper, 57. Sterling
exchange quiet and weak at $4 84 for 60-day
bills and $4 87K for demand.

The OH Market Very Like the Sick Alan of
Although oil reached a slightly higher level '
of values yesterday than on Thursday, the
range was very nairow and trading limited to a
few small lots. The opening, lowest and clos
ing was $1 0bi and the highest $1 00. Pitts
burg and Bradford did about all the buying.
A broker remarked: "The market is so close
that this seems a good time for a change in
some direction. From a little tip I received
from New York to-day I think there will be a
slight break. The lone and short interests are
very small, and there is no inducement to in
crease them."
A private letter from Russia says: "Having
just returned from Baku, the principal seat of
the Russian oil fields, I can fully indorse the
statement of the Kerosene Company that there
are no signs of the oil fields giving out During
May and June of each year it is enstomary to
find a falling off in the supply of oil at Baku;
but so far from the oil giving out I saw on the
morning of the day of my arrival at Baku a
fountain of oil spout some 60 feet in the air,
and at the rate of 6,000 to 7,000 barrels per
day. This was considered by no means a nov
elty. "When I was at Baku an American gentle
man, closely connected with one of tho largest
oil companies in tbe world, gave it as bis
opinion that there was more oil in the small
snace of Balakbani than in the whole of Amer
ica, Having traveled over a considerable part
of Southern Russia, the opinion I have formed
is that the development of the oil trade in Rus
sia is only beginning."

Northern Pacific Sugar Trust and Cotton Oil
Pounded by tbe Bears Serious Dlia-
creemebt Said to Exist In tbe '
Directory of tho Former
Bonds Tnmble.
New Yobk, September 2a The stock mar
ket to-day remained in the dull and listless
state Into which it had fallen, and outside one
or two stocks In the regular list and the trusts
presented no feature ot interest The opening
was extremely dnll and fairly steady, with the
dealings almost exclusively professional, and
the fluctuations were confined to the usual
limits of small fractions. Tbe Coal stocks were
the strong feature, and Jersey Central moved
up on good buying supposed to be fof insiders,
which was accompanied by rumors of a new
arrangement which would largely increase the
company's commercial tonnage, though they
could not be confirmed. The stock tonched 121.
Northern Pacific preferred was weak again.
the impression having been created in some
quarters that a serious disagreement had taken
Place in the directory, and tbe hope which had
been indulged in of dividends upon the pre
ferred stock on Januarv 1 were given up. This
caused some selling, and tbe stock was the only
one In tbe regular list which showed sny de
cided weakness, dropping over 1 per cent. Tbe
Grangers were generally quiet but firm, and
the earnings of Northwestern, showing a gain
of 12 per cent were well received. Louisville
and Nashville were also rather strongsr and
crossed 77 again, but fluctuated over an ex
tremely narrow range for tbe most active stock
of the day. Sugar Trust sold ex-dlvidend and
became a mark for the bears, who hammered
it down 2 per cent on the reiteration of the
old rumors of an issue of bonds.
Cotton Oil was also specially weak and
dropped over 1 per cent, though It was inti
mated to-day that the block of stock which
bad been on the market had been nearly closed
out The general list after a steady opening
was dull, but firm in the forenoon, and frac
tional advances were tho rule, but the dullness
and the weakness in the leading shares in
duced some selling by the smaller holders, and
the list sagged away again. Later in the day it
was dull and heavy with Insignificant changes,
though declines were more numerous. Jersey
Central was up 1. but Northern Pacific pre
ferred was down , Sugar Trust 2U, and Cot
ton Oil W,.
Railroad bonds were dull, and the only feat,
ure was tho renewed activity and strength in
tbe Kansas and Texas issues, the sixes con
tributing $141,000 to the day's total of only 80G0,
000. The rest of the issues traded in showed
generally a reactive spirit and tbe final
changes are in most cases in the direction of
lower prices. Milwaukee. Lake Shore and
Western firsts rose 3, to 128.
