A Strong Fcellnc In the Wheat Pit, Which Is
Intensified Later oo by a Drop In the
Visible Supply Estimate Other
Staple! Fearnreless.
CHICAOO On Saturday 12 cars of wheat
graded No. 2 out of a total of ISO, which was a
slight improvement over the previous days of
the week. To-day there were only six cars of
contract gram out of a total of 207 cars. The
market to-day was active and strong, but un
settled. The crowd was disposed to fight shy of
the near futures, and September was again sus
piciously regarded on account of the small
warehouse stocks of grain in contract Offer,
ings of May were light early, and the premises
were again narrowed. ,!,-
: At one time changes were made from Octooer
to December at lc difference. The market
opened strong at about the closing quotations
of Saturday. Under a good demand from the
shorts and some investment buying there was a
bulge during the first hour of the session of ?c
in December, a few trades being made In that
month at as low as 79KS0c together. Shortly
before the close it touched 81c Pending the
announcement or the visible supply figures
business in the pit was rather light tor a time,
and it was the posting of an increase of only
1.499,000 bushels when 1,750.000 to 2,000,000 was
expected, that gave the market its closing
strength. It closed active and buoyant at a net
gain for the day of lc in .September, lKc in
October and year,. cm December and c in
Onlv moderate business was transacted in
corn, fluctuations being narrow and transac
tions mainly of a local character. The feeling
early was comparatively steady, but later a
somewhat easier tone was manifested, innu
ences affecting the market were in the main
local. A prominent local trader was a moder
ate seller of September and October to-day.
The market opened a shade under the closing
figures of Saturday, was steady for a time, then
sold off ic, ruled firm and closed steady, a
shade higher than Saturday.
Oats were active for May. A prominent
operator bought that month every time the
market weakened, and sold on all strong snots.
Prices were slightly higher early and the ad
vance was fairly maintained.
Very light trading was reported in pork and
the feeling was comparatively steady. Prices
ruled 010c higher and closed steady.
Nothing doing in lard, and prices are without
material change.
Very little business was transacted in short
ribs. The feeling was steadier and prices ruled
offilOc higher.

A Chicago Ofllrer Compelled to Flee in
Order to Escape Injury.'
Chicago, September 23. Superintend
ent Frankland, of the Compulsory Educa
tional Department, has been trying to get
an appropriation from some source to bny
clothes and shoes for the children who have
no raiment fit to attend school in. He ap
plied to the Connty Board for aid, but thai
body replied, through the county agent,
that the county had no authority to appro
priate money lor such a purpose. To make
matters worse, Mr. Frankland's men gath
ered up 130 youngsters off the Bouthside
streets, and placed them last week in the
Jones and Hale school. They came to
school to dirty and ragged that the princi
pals were compelled to put them out or suf
fer the schools to be broken up.
This morning one of the officers of the de
partment went up into the neighborhood of.
the Jones School to gather up the expelled
children, when he was surrounded by a
mob of them, and driven from the scene.
He had to tnake his exit in a lively manner
to escape serious injury.

Terra Cotta Lumber Belied on to Effect a
' Revolution in Building.
The manufacture of terra cotta lumber in
this city, to which reference was made a
short time ago, promises to be a complete
success. The material is new here, but well
known in Chicago and other Western cities,
where it has met with great favpr. One of
Booth & Flinn's brick kilns has been recon
structed for the especial manufacture of this
lumber, and others will be utilized to keep
up. with the demand. It is especially valu
able as backing for brick and stone work
and partitions, being cheaper than lath. Tlas
ter can be applied to it directly, and nails can
be driven through it as easily as through ordin
ary wood.
Although its merits have been fully tested in
Chicago, it has been suggested, and the sugges
tion will probably be carried out that a series
of experiments be made with the material here
to satisfy" the Pittsburg public that it possesses
all the advantages tor the purposes Indicated
that have been claimed for it. For this purpose
it is probable that a stone bouse will be built
and backed exclusively with the material. It
is thought this practical proof of its superiority
over ordinary lumber will give It a boom which
nothing could. The company has a capital of
S100.000, all held in Pittsburg, and is confident
the new material will effect something of a
revolution in building.
Mutation of fortune is one of the striking char
acteristics of business life in this country, so
much so, indeed, that "rich to-day, poor to
morrow.'' has passed into a proverb. It is well
that there is no royal road to wealth in this
"land of the free." All men are on an equal
ity in the struggle for material things, and the
race is to the earnest and the persevering.
The man who understands his business and
prosecutes it with tireless industry turns the
chances of success in his favor. He possesses
the open sesame to all the riches of earth.
In an East End suburb, ou Sunday, two
maiden ladies, both on the sunny side of 60,
clad in black, relieved only by a knot of white
ribbon at the throat, were seen wending their
waytoamodestbnilding in an out-of-the-way
place in which the Covenanters meet for wor
ship. These ladies, well educated, refined, fa
miliar with the usages of the best society, lov
able in character and conduct, and es
teemed by all who know them for their
good works, have had a remarkable
experience. In their girlhood they were
peers to one of the largest fortunes in Alle
gheny county. Their father owned nearly all
the land comprised in what is now known as
Bterrett township, with large outside posses
sions and interests. Twenty or 30 years ago he
lost heavily by unfortunate investments 580,000
in the Hwissvale car works and suffered still
more from the failure of friends whose notes
he had indorsed for large amounts. Ten or 12
years ago he became involved in litigation with
the city in regard to taxes, which cost him
large amounts for lawyers' fees and other legal
expenses. He won the suit, but the result left
him almost penniless. He had mortgaged his
land to raise money to defend what be consid
ered his rights. The mortgages were fore
closed, and his vast landed estate passed out of
his possession. He did not even own the house

A prominent New York drygoods dealer, in
an interview on Saturday, said the business
done by jobbers during the last half year had
been almost phenomenal, and that all indica
tions pointed to a continuance of this highly
satisfactory condition. It was no exaggeration,
he thought, to say that the volume of business
was now greater than it had been in some
years. Credit was remarkably good, and cay
ments were made with ease. "We come in con
tact with jobbers in every part of the country,"
he added, "and I feel justified in saying that
sot only New York merchants, but those of the
who'? country from Portland to Galveston, and
from the Atlantic to the Pacific are enjoying
their full measure of prosperity. The fall trade
has opened with a great deal of liveliness, and
I see no reason why this should not keep on.
Everything is so very satisfactory that I do not
see what one can say except that we are well
These views were corroborated by several
other wholesale dealers, a member of the firm
of Claflin & Co. saying: "Our sales this season
have been larger than they have been for five
years. This is not only the case with us. but
with all the big bouses in the city. We have
had a'most satisfactory year in every respect.
It has been easy to make collections and credit
is good everywhere. There is a growing confi
dence in every part of the country. Tho
present prosperity in the trade has not been
equaled in some years."
It is reported on excellent authority, that
Clans Spreckels has in contemplation the erec
tion of another large sugar refinery at New
Orleans, and is in fact negotiating for the pur
chase of a suitable piece of property there, if.
Indeed, the purchase has not actually been
completed. The erection of a refinery at New
Orleans will give Mr. Spreckels a position from
which it will be impossible to dislodge him.
He will have a fortress in the East, in the
West and in the South, and will be invincibly
sitnated in regard to the whole of the sugar
markets of the United States.
He can ship by rail and water In every direc
tion. It is a certainty that he can manufacture
cheaper than the trust, for he has no "dead
horse" to carry. There will be two buyers for
Louisiana sugars, and the trade of the South
will be relieved from the trust yoke that it now
groans under in its helplessness, hut about
which it dare not utter aloud its dally impre
Unfavorable Eeporls Canse n Bis Tumble In
Philadelphia Gm.
Tne stock market was active yesterday for
Monday and with a circus in town. The sales
were 363 shares. There wassome broadening and
a little narrowing, but most" of the properties
showed no positive change either way. They
about held their own, with the exception of the
gassers, which lost ground. Of the active
stocks Philadelphia Gas was the weakest.
Reports of a short supply and a tip, the
authority for which could not be found, that
the coming dividend would be cut down, were
too much for it to sustain, and after openine
at S6K and selling up to 36tf it closed at 35
bid and 85 asked. The matter of the divi
dend is important, if true, but the story of a
decrease in supply has been nsed for several
davs and has been denied by the company.
The scare is probably only temporary one of
the tricks of the bears to get In on the ground
floor. Bids, offers and sales follow:

The Local Money Market Holds Its Ovvn
No Cnuse for Scare.
There was nothing like a new feature in the
local money market yesterday. Funds were
abundant at the regular rates. The clearings
were $2,694,164 03, and the balances $533,868 63.
One of the best indications that the money
scare is reaching a climax is evidenced by the
fact that funds in Chicago are in plentiful sup
ply at the rate of 4 per cent, and that in Boston
and Philadelphia ruling rates are not as high as
they are in New York. Any marked activity
resulting either from legitimate demand pr
from manipulation of the moneymarket, would
unquestionably result in currency gravitating
toward that center, so that speedy and immedi
ate relief may be counted upon. The foreign
exchange market likewise shows excessive
weakness, and it is not unlikely that inside of a
very reasonable period English gold will be
coming this way.

The oil market opened weak yesterday at
09 under the influence of the latest strike in
Jefferson Center, the well being said to be a
good producer. Buying by Sproul & Lawrence
and one or two others here caused an advance
to 100J4 around which the market hung until
the afternoon, when news of a decline in re
fined abroad started a break which pulled the
price down to 99, at which the market finished
the first closing under a dollar since the 14th.
It was a dull day all round.
An expert says : "The petroleum market,ls
in the doldrums, and no one will inquire what
it is, much less touch it, until a breeze strikes
the becalmed craft. Producers will have to
raise the wind or wait for the gradual reduction
of certificates, to have its legitimate effect I
cannot avoid a bullish feeling concerning the
future of petroleum."

New YOBE,September 23. The stock market
to-day showed no signs of coming out of tho
mt of dullness and stagnation Into which it
has fallen, and the trading, outside of Louis
ville and Nashville and the trusts, was of a de
cidedly retail character, while, except in a few
of tho leading stocks, the extreme range for
the day seldom exceeded per cent. The
room traders, as usual, bad the making of
prices in the general list almost entirely to
themselves. There were a few movements of
significance, but these were In every case the
result of special causes, and were made in
spite of the general lethargy. Louisville and
Nashville was the great feature of the day's
operations, and its early strength gave evi
dence that someone was familiar with the de
velopments which afterward gave the stock Its
great lift.
After opening at 79c, the same as Satu.
day's final prices, it rose to 79?c. but was.ham
mered down by the traders to 77c. The an
nouncement was then made that a resolution
was made Ty the directors to submit to the
stockholders the proposition to issue $13,000,000
new stock for the purpose of taking np the col
lateral trust bonds at 6 per cent together with,
other securities which maybe available. The
stock afterward rose to 790 and closed at 79c
Jersey Central was again a strong feature and
Tose to $1 23 the highest prices yet known, the
influence of a report that the first mortgage
bonds were to be funded into a 4 per cent bond
helping in the rise. The Trusts were the weak
spot in themaiket, and sugar was sold down
from $1 04 to $1 01K. and while there was talk
er a rival establishment in the South the de
cline looked; more like manipulation than any
thing else.
Manitoba showed some life and advanced 1
fier cent to lc, but afterward lost the entire
mprovement. The Big Fours were
also specially weak, and the common
dropped from 73c to 71c There
was aosolutely no feature outside
of the stocks mentioned, and the market, after
a somewhat Irregular but generally steady
opening, showed a little weakness and shaded
'olf from the opening t cures, but later moved
up again. The course of prices was alternately
upward and downward, with the range ex
tremely small, and the close was quiet and
fairly firm at close to opening figures. The
gains are almost entirely for small fractions,
the only exceptions being advances of 1
and 1 respectively in Jersey Central and
Louisville and Nashville and a decline of lin
Sugar Trust.
Railroad bonds were somewhat more active
than usual of late, the sales reaching $942,000,
which amount was widely distributed without
any special animation in any one issue. The
tone of the market was rather heavy, especially
in the afternoon, and the final changes in a
majority of cases in the direction of lower fig
ures. The important fluctuations were few in
number, but among those which are lower this
evening Hocking Valley 6s lost 2M at 72f,

Business Notes.
It is thought this week will break the record
in the number of building permits issued. The
business is booming.
It is easier to put oil down than np. as was
demonstrated yesterday, when one well and a
drop in refined did the business.
Major a. I. Pentecost will leave to-day
for Grafton, to attend the reunion of his old
regiment. He will be back on Saturday. -
The break in Philadelphia gas yesterday
caused very little comment. If the dividend
turns out all right the trouble aoout supply
can easily be bridged over.
Sevxbal large deals in real estate, which
have been hanging fire for some time, will, it
is said, be closed up this week. One of them
involves an entire block on Water street,
S. J. FrEMiuo has taken into partnership
Mr. K. E. McClure, who was with General
Blakely. This is a valuable acquisition to the
firm, and will no doubt result in a large in
crease of business.
, A OENTLEltAs who deals largely in mort
gages said yesterday that there was more
money in the city for that purpose than there
was three or four weeks ago. Considerable of
it IS Eastern capital.
THE anthracite coal trade improved some
what dnring the past week, but it is not as
active as it should be at this season of the year.
The demand for coal from the New Kngland
and Western markets has increased slightly.
It IS said on apparently good authority that
Jndge Cooley, Chairman of the Inter-State
Commerce Commission, is gravely considering
his resignation from that body, for the reason
that the law is practically inoperative and can
not be enforced.
The directors of the Louisville and Nashville
Railroad yesterday recommended the issue of

Prospects Reported.
Cereal Markets Unchanged, but Flour Job

OmcK of PrrrsBTmG Dispatch, f
Monday, September 23. 1888. i
Country Produce Jobbing Prices.
There is a wide dlrersltyof Yiews among com
mission men as to the potato prospect. Some
are strong in the faith that potatoes will soon
go to SI cer bushel, and tbat importations from
Ireland will be necessary, as two years ago.
The potato rot is being worked for all that is in
it. One dealer reports that the late rise will
bring plenty to markets before the week is out,
and tbat prices will fall back to the old figures.
It is too early in the week for the development
of any new features in general produce lines.
Butter and cheese markets are active, and an
other advance is among the probabilities in the
near future.

The success that is attending the physicians
of the Polypatblc Institute in the treatment of
all forms of kidney and urinary diseases Is truly
wonderful. Among the many patients who
have been cured and have given testimonials
for publication, 'are Mr. H. Robertson, kidney
disease and dropsy; Mr. A. Schermerhorn. who
had severe hemorrhages and lost three
quarts of blood at one time: Mr. J. V.
Smith, whose disease caused him to be in
constant fear of becoming insane: a lady who
had a tumor, measured five feet around her ab
domen, and bad been unable to lie down for
over three months, received an operation and
over SO quarts (60 pounds) of dropsical fluid
was taken from her; Mr. Henry Walter,
rheumatism of many years standing, The
complication of diseases tbat are the outcome
of diseased condition of the kidneys is really
alarming. If yon have weakness or pain across
the small of the back; tired feeling,
with lack of ambition, scanty or copi
ous flow of urine, with pain
in voiding it, with a red or whitish sediment,
a pale, sallow or waxy skin, or pain In different
parts of the body, you have symptoms pointing
unmistakably to a diseased condition ot the
kidneys, and yon should lose no time in con
sulting some one who makes a specialty of your
disease. Br. Shafer and his medical associates
give especial attention to this class of diseases.
Consultation free and price of treatment within
the reach ot all. Remember the Polypatblc
Medical Institute is permanently located at

To enre Mrs. Thomas Hatton, and she suffered
on for 13 years. The aches and pains which she
experienced in almost every part of her body
were simply terrible. Those sharp, cutting
pains across the small of her back and lower
part of her body were almost unbearable. In
fact, she suffered with all those diseases and,
conditions peculiar to women. Foe three
months her mind was unbalanced, and for
months she was confined to her bed. She be
came very weak and emaciated, so that she
only weighed 93 pounds. No one expected her
to live, much less get entirely cured. After re
ceiving three months' treatment from the phy
sicians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute,
323 Penn. avenue, she says: "The condition of
my case was much worse than has been de
scribed. It Is over five months since I became
cared, and no trace of the disease has since ap
peared. I now enjoy good health and am very
glad to testify to my permanent cure by the
physicians ot the Catarrh and Dyspepsia In
stitute.' Mrs. Thomas Hatton,
