A DECIDED CHANGE
For the Better is Now Koted in Many
Departments of Trade.
IRON IS ON A MUCH FIEMEE BASIS.
Stock Speculation About the Only Line
That is Suffering.
FAILUEES KOT QUITB SO HU1TEROUS
rKTECIXL TZLEOBAX TO TQS DISPATCH.!
New York, September 20. A marked
increase of activity in leading distributive
line throughout the "West is reported this
week in special telegrams to Bradttreet't.
This favorable condition of affairs is chiefly
noticeable at Chicago, St Louis, Kansas
City, Omaha, Pittsburg, Detroit and Louis
ville. At the South, New Orleans gives an
equally favorable report, interior trade
receiving an import impetus, owing- to the
free movement of cotton. At Cincinnati
tirade is reported excellent.
Stormy weather on the Eastern Atlantic
coast has interrupted distribution at New
Tork, Philadelphia and Boston. Cooler
weather has induced a notable increase in
demand for seasonable goods at leading
cities. Crop prospects, particularly corn
and cotton, remain very promising. Sugar
crop prospects are less bright, but a large
yield is anticipated. Cattle and hogs are
more active at the West at variable prices.
Collections are fair to good.
ET SPECULATIVE XJKXS.
Stock speculation resisted the pressure of
Western rate cutting and of higher money,
and even showed revived bullish tendencies
at the close of the week. Bonds are dull
and firm. Money at New York has worked
higher on small bond acceptances and a
drain of the bank reserves to the "West

'markets are all strong in tone, with an ad
vancing tendency on active demand. Steel
rails are ?1 a ton higher on promising rail
road building outlook. Nails are advanced
at the West Copper is selling freely at the
late decline. Production active.
The coal trade lacks snap, but is ex
pected to improve with the advent of cooler
weather. Talk of a great coal trust being
formed is discredited.
Wheat speculation has been limited, with
frequent but narrow fluctuations. Early
weakness was due to adverse cables and
irregular Western markets. Later on some
strength was shown on better cables and
lighter interior receiots,on which nearly all
the early loss was regained. Corn is off $
-c on increased offerings and improved
crop reports. Contract oats are -ie
lower on the week.
Flour was active at a slight decline. Ex
ports this week of wheat (and flour as
wheat) aggregate 2,098,677 bushels, against
1,426,552 bnshels last week, and 2,831,370
bushels in the like week of 1883. The total
exports from July 1 to date are 22,564,001
bushels, against 26,658,387 bushels last
Drygoods jobbers at New York and Bos
ton report a reaction from early September
activity, accentuated in some meas ure by
stormy weather on several days of the week.
Foreign dress goods have been in active
movement at New York. The movement to
fill orders on jobbers at the latter market
has been unprecedentedly heavy. Agents re
port trade quiet to dull. Prices are well
held. Print cloths stocks are growing, but
values are quotably unchanged. Bleached
goods are in especially good tone.
SLIG1ITLT 3I0RE ACTIVE.
The Boston clothing trade is slightly
more active, as are also foreign dress goods
at New York. Wool is inactive at seaboard
markets. Buyers and sellers are wide
apart as regards prices. Spot cotton is
duller and c lower, but speculation is
more active and 2030 points higher on the
near months' contracts, owing to the squeeze
of September shorts. Crop movement is be
yond previous records. Prospects regarded
Coffee speculation has been active but
bearish in tone, with a decline of Jc on
contracts. Holders of actual coffee are firm.
Reports of accumulation at interior points
are received. Sugar is Ao higher on
improve! consumptive demand. Provisions
are steady and firm except pork, which is
stronger on better export demand. Choice
grades of butter are 3c higher on better de
mand. Ocean freights are in good demand
on account of corn and flour-shipments.
Business failures reported to Bradttreet't
number 190 in the United States this week
against 190 last week and 178 this week last
year. Canada had 21 this week, against 11
last week. The total of failures in the
"United States January 1 to date is 8,126
against 7,180 in 1888.
DUN'S tteekxy bevtett.
E. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of
trade says: Throughout the country the
state of bnsiness is encouraging and the
only disheartening features are in connec
tion with speculative operations. Stocks
have not quite maintained the recent ad
vance, the chief cause being the Western
railroad wars. Speculation in breadstuff's
and cotton has been at a slightlv lower
rarge of prices, with but moderate transac
tions, and slackness of the consumptive de
mand causes a weaker tone in coffee and
sugar markets without material change in
prices. Oil speculation is a shade stronger
and provisions steady.
At Boston a conservative feeling still
rules the money market, and bnsiness has
not wholly recovered from recent set backs,
but is improving in wool and steady in
leather and lumber. At Philadelphia the
jobbing drygoods trade continues good, and
the grocery trade improves, exceeding last
year's. The paper trade decidedly revives,
the liquor trade is active and drugs and
chemicals moderately active, but in wool
there is very little movement At Chicago
there is a decline in receipts of wool and of
grain, higher pices for wheat, leading
farmers to hold back, but a large increase in
BETTER ALL AEOUKD.
For the year thus far trade exceeds last
year's. Milwaukee reports constantly im
proving business. Kansas City reports
business and collections a fair average for
me season, ana Jie veiana increased activity,
especially in iron and ore. At Omaha
great crops give good bnsiness and collec
tions and at Pittsburg further improve
ment is seen in Bessemer iron and steel, in
coke and in coal, with a resumption of the
glass works at 5 per cent higher wages.
Southern prospects also are all encourag
ing as to crop prespects and present trade.
There is no stringency in money, the sup
ply being ample for legitimate needs. For
eign exchange has dropped half a cent and
possibilities of gold exports appear more re
mote, while merchandise exports ior three
weeks exceed last year's by 32 per cent,
the increase in imports meanwhile being
but 3 per cent. The Treasury also has been so
managed that its actual holdings of cash are
?600.000 lower than last Saturday. Thus far
the Kew York banks have been able to meet
all demands for the interior without dis
turbance, but it is not forgotten that the de
mands are not yet over, the reserves are low
and there is no present prospect of supplies
A GRADUAL IMPROVEMENT.
Tha great industries appear to be gradual
ly improving in condition. "While the im
provement is slow in wool manufacture,
there is clearly n more active demand at
Boston, and sales of wool there this week
are 3,28,000 pounds. But the larger move

goods market ii still uncertain. Jobbers
holding stocks made from cheaper wool,
which have to be cleared off before adjust
ment of the market to the present price of
material is possible, and meanwhile &
pressure to sell may prevent an advance.
In the iron business confusion increases,
becauseBouthern coke. No. 1 foundry, is
offered at $16 75 for delivery to the end of
January, while anthracite No. 1 sells at 17
to $18, and higher for special brands. Large
contracts for structural iron for Chicago and
St Louis elevated roads have been taken in
Eastern Pennsylvania, and the orders for
rails on books September 1 were 1,135,000
tons, quotations here being still unchanged.
Copper has remained dull, and though tons
of tin are reported on the way, spot is still
quoted at $21 87.
POTATO AND PBUPE CROPS.
The partial failure of potato and fruit
crops, and the injury to butter by recent
storms, cause an advance in prices, and the
general average ior commodities is now
about 1 per cent higher than September 1.
The unprecedented movement of cattle and
fresh beef to England attracts much atten
tion, the exports having been over 90,000
head of cattle and 40,000,000 pounds fresh
beef within three months ending with Au
gust, beside 34,000,000 pounds cured or
canned beef. And it is noteworthy that the

Offers the following inducements, if you
wish to pay cash: By becomine a member
you will save $75 in the price of the piano,
and get it at once. If yon cannot spare the
cash you can get your piano any time, on
payment of $25 cash and $2 50 per week,
no interest, and still save $75 in the price.
If you cannot pay so fast, by waiting
until your number is drawn you will get
your piano on payments of $1 per week, no
interest, and save $7 in the regular price
to our retail trade. Think of tbisl Our
club is composed of 350 members, each
paying $1 per week. Thus you see the
members are buying for cash, and one piano
is delivered to the member whose number
is drawn each week, until all are supplied,
or, if one-half of the members take their
pianos and pay $2 50 per week, we deliver
twice the number, and get double the
amount of cash each week, and it leaves
only one-half the number to be drawn on the
$1 weekly payments. It is a simple business
problem. We are saving our members the
difference in price by contracting for 350
pianos at one time, and on a cash basis. We
have now enough members to guarantee the
success of this plan, and have decided to
begin delivering the pianos on Saturday,

THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, - SATURDAY,
IN THE CHURCHES.
The Desiro for IJome Exile Steadily
Growing ia This Vicinity.
A SPIRIT OP INDEPENDENCE
That Has Led Four Churches to Adopt a
New Form of Government.
NOTES OP EELIGIODS GATHBBIHGS
The change of the ecclesiastical relations
of the church, corner of North and Grant
avenues, has aroused much interest The
reception of this church into the Congrega
tional fellowship took place on Tuesday
evening last, when the counsel met in their
chapel. Bev. W. McCracken was elected
moderator, and Bev. A. H. Hills, clerk.
Mr. Robertson, of the new organization,
made a brief statement of the causes which
led to a wish for this change of relationship
the chief and ruling one being a desire
for liberty and self control. The pastor,
ev. J. H. Barnett, gave a list of-63 persons
who had united to form the new Congrega
tional Church. The church has adopted
the doctrinal basis of the Pennsylvania Con
gregational Association. The council re
tired, and, after fnl discussion, voted to
recognize the new organization as a Congrega
tional Church. The consecration prayer was
offered by the moderator. Bight band of fel
lowship to pastor and deacons was given by
Bev. D. M. George.
The charge to the Church was given by Rev.
A. M. Hills, in which he solemnly charged them
to dwell at peace among themselves, for the
sake ot the honor of the cause of Christ Thoy
were now subject only to Him. They were to
love each other, to have an eye single to the
glory of God, to disenss all questions kindly
and fully, save such as they may prefer to dele
gate to a committee, which must again report
to them, and then to conscientiously abide by
the vote of the majority, as in Congregational
ism each individual was the peerot every other,
there being no bond or fee. He charged them
earnestly to uphold their pastor by sympathy
and prayer, by regnlar attendance and by a
hearty co-operation, so long as he was faithf nl
and loyal to tbo truth. They could not hire
their praying done for them, neither could the
pastor build np the church without their aid.
From this organization it seems that a spirit
of ecclesiastical liberty and a desire for "Home
Rule" in the church hereabouts must be in the
air, as four Congregational chnrches have been
formed in a little over two years, three
of them originating in a common desire to
escape outside ecclesiastical dictation. Dele
gates were present trom the First Congrega
tional Church, Pittsburg; thersouthside Con
gregational Church, the First Church of Brad
dock and tne First Church of Allegheny:

rSFECIAI. TELEOBAM TU TUB DISrATCTLJ
Baltimore, September 20. There is a
pretty little romance 'connected with a mar
riage at the All Saints' Protestant Episco
pal Church last evening. The contracting
parties were Miss Emily P. Owens and Mr.
Samuel Garner. The bride is the youngest
daughter of the late Isaac Owens, and the
groom is professor of languages at the
United States Naval Academy at f An
napolis. Both are considerably over 30
years of age.
Twelve years or so ago, the story goes,
Mr. Garner and Miss Owens were fast
Iriends. Both were well educated and
good looking, if not handsome, and both
were well off in this world's goods. There
was only one barrier which prevented a
marriage, and that Was the religious differ
ence ot the loving conple. Mr. Garner was
a confirmed infidel, while the lady was a
devout believer in Christianity. He hoped
to win the lady, but she was finn and said
she would marry none but a Christian.
The gentleman couldn't bring, himself to
believe the doctrines of Christianity, and
seeing that his pursuit of the hand of Miss
Owens was hopeless, ne aeierminea to try
to forget her. With this end in view he went
to the far West. There, after a while, he
quite accidentally became a boarder in a
house of a minister of the gospel. The di
vine, thinking the young man a hopeless in
fidel, did not try to change his thoughts to
In a few years Mr.Garner noticed in what
perfect harmony the minister and his wife
lived together, and then for the first time
he began to realize that perhaps it was bet
ter for a man and wife to be Christians than
for them to hold different broad opinions on

love had long died out To him she was
nothing but a memory. He asked' the divine
to lend him some religious books, which re
quest was gladlv complied with, and in due
course Samuel Garner became a Christian
man. By corresponding with friends in
Baltimore, to his delight he fonnd that Miss
Owens was still unmarried. Letters were at
once exchanged "between them and Mr.
Garner set out for Baltimore.
The culmination of the story occurred
when the two happy hearts became one.

CONFESSED A CRIME
Which Will Eelease an Innocent
Han From the Penitentiary.
A 'VICTIM OP CIECUHSTAKCES.
Timothy O'Grady Sentenced to Seventeen
ON A FALSE CHARGE OF MANSLAUGETEE
Chicago, September 20, The police
annals of tnis and other cities record many
cases of mistaken identity, but all the his
tories of instances of circumstantial evidence
and mistaken identity weave no stronger
case against an unfortunate innocent man
than did the testimony against Timothy
O'Grady, convicted of the murder ot Police
Office Michael O'Brien, the night of April
3, 1887. O'Grady was sentenced to the
penitentiary for 17 years for manslaughter.
The only point which saved him from
hanging was'JthatPolicemen O'Brien and
Dillon bad, by roughly accosting and
shaking O'Grady, given him, if not suffi
cient provocation to shoot, enough at least
to plead it strongly against the infliction
of capital punishment. O'Grady astounded
all his friends, not one of whom could be
lieve him innocent of the crime, by his
refusal to plead self-defense when put on
trial. He maintained, against the advice of
all, that he had not done the shooting.
CLEARLY PROVED GUILTY.
All the testimony and the circumstances
went to disprove his "claim of innocence,
however, and his coaviction followed.
After many months of confinement his lib
erty has been made possible by the confes
sion of one the most daring and. notorious
criminals in the country, it being none
other than John J., alias "Oyer" Scanlan,
the leader of the celebrated "Mollie Mott"
gang, who was captured a little over a year
ago, by ex-Inspector John Bonfield and a
squad of police.
Scanlan had fortified himself in a house
near Archer avenue and Twenty-second
street, with Mollie Mott, and defended him
self, although wounded by several bullets,
until nearly 100 shots were fired, Scanlan
had a few days before shot and, it was sup
posed, mortally wounded Police Officer
Nolan, who tried to arrest him for shooting
a rebellions member of the thieving gang.
For shooting Officer Nolan, Scanlan and
Mott were sentenced to the penitentiary,
Scanlan getting ten years and ten months.
O'Grady's lawyers were convinced ot his
innocence, and, after his conviction, cast
about for evidence to substantiate their be
lief. CONFESSED THE CEIME.
They were enabled eventually to fix the
crime on Scanlan, and then they set about
getting a confession from him. This they
have succeeded in doing. It appears that
O'Grady had had a fight with Officers
O'Brien and Dillon, and had escaped into
an alley. The officers followed, and O'Brien
was shot down by some one concealed in a
O'Brien, in his ante-mortem statement,
and Dillon, on the, stand in the trial, identi
fied O'Grady as the guilty man, but it was
shown that the bullet which killed 'O'Brien
was much larger than that carried by
O'Grady's pistol. The jury ignored this,
but the confession of Scanlan clears the
matter up, as he has turned np the weapon
with which he did the shooting, and which
corresponds with the fatal bullet.
O'Grady's attorneys expect to secure his
pardon soon. 4 ,
