" The situation in hides and leather has not
materially chanced in the past few weeks.
Light hides and calf skins, are weak,
and heavy hides are stationary in price. A
leading johber thus puts the situation: "I
have never seen the time when bnff hides
were as low in this mirket as they are at
this time, and I have been familiar with the
trade here lor 20 years or more. The same
is true or calf skins. In 1S77 and 1S8S heavy
hides went about as low as they are now."
Harness leather rates at about lc higher than
it did in June and Jnly.but is still lc lower than
at this time a year ago. The season for harness
leather is about oTer, and dealers have Gen
erally laid in stock for fall trade. There is no
prospector an adance before January 1, and
until then jobbers are likely to pursue the
hand to-mouth policy. Our Allegheny tanneries
are well sold up, but unless thiugs chance stock
will accumulate in the next month or two. A
representative of the largest harness leather
tannery said to-day: "Oar August trade this
j ear was far ahead of the same month last year
in volume, but profits were very small." Fol

A Fish Fnmine.
An unusual scarcity of fish in our markets is
reported ny dealers, owing to late storms along
the Eastern coast Said one of the leadinc
dealers in Diamond Market to-day: "I have
not known such a scarcity in the past five
years, and find it utterly impossible to meet
the demands of my customers. For a day or
two past some dealers here have been entirely
out of fish. We have been doing our best to
ret supplies, and thoucht yesterdiy we would
be relieved before night. But there is not jet
half enough to go round. I took an inventory
of fish on Diamond Market stalls yesterday
morning, and found five herrings, two suckers
and a white fish on one stall; a haddock and
rod fish on another, and another was entirely
bare. The whole amount in the hands of all
onr dealers was not enough to meet demands of
a first-class restaurant for a single day."
There is no article in country produce lines
concerning which there is a greater diversity of
news among commission men than potatoes.
Some claim that prices will go to $1 a bushel,
while others hold that 2 a barrel will be the
outside price this season. It is a fact that the
yield throughout this region of country has
fallen much below the expectations of a month
or two ago. The rot lias Aery much lessened
the output in the section around Pittsburg.
But against this fact stands the other that
reports from the Northwest indicate a bounti
ful yield. The situation of two years ago,
when we were compelled to bring potatoes
from Ireland to supply Pittsburg markets, is
not likely to be repeated this season. The
scarcity of the past week has already been re
lieved, and the upward drift has been arrested.
Wchavea big country, and, irom present ap
pearances, there will be no potato famine in
A Liberty street commission merchant, who
a few da) sago was inclined to be bullish on
potatoes, reported to-day full supplies and
weaker markets, with good prospects of plenty
from Indiana and Michigan.
The arrival of the season for fires has caused
quite a spurt in the insurance business.

Buoyaut Feeling In the Wheat Tit and In
terest Broadening An Advance
Abrond and Decrense In the
CnicAGO The wheat market is rap
idly broadening. Speculative trading to
day was again of large volume, and the under-,
tone was very bullish. Opening figures were
6c above ,Mt night's closing range, and
there was a slight reaction an hour or so later,
but thereafter, until pretty near the close, the
tendency was strongly upward. The principal
bullish influences early were the reported ad
vance of Jc in foreign markets and the de
crease of 1.048,000 bushels in the quantity of
wheat and flour on ocean passage.
The bulk of the trading early was at Sl81Kc
for December and at 84j;c for May, yesterday's
difference of 3c being pretty steadily main
tained. Great buoyancy was shown just before
the adjournment, and final closing figures were
vi ithin a small fraction of the top. An actnal
gain was established of c in September, a
in October, 1 cent in December, l&c in year and
Jc In May.
Corn was quiet and inactive early, but as the
session advanced the market became more
active. Trading was confined mainly to the
local operators. The market opened yiie
under yesterday's closing prices, was steady for
a time, declined H&Hc, ruled firmer and
closed K6KC lower than yesterday.

PEAISE, NOT BLAME,
Dae to Pittsburg Capitalists for What
They Baye .Done to t
SDPPlit THE PEOPLE WITH HOMES.
Danger of Horing Into Houses Before the
Walls Are Thoroughly Dry.
LEGAL Df CIS10NS AFFECTING REALTI
In all that The Dispatch has said in
the wajrof urging Pittsburg capitalists to
invest more money in buildings, as a good
investment on their part, and as the best
means of increasing the population of the
city, and, therefore, its wealth and import
ance, care has been taken to permit no re
mark which could be construed thto a cen
sure of those who thought differently. Cap
italists should be allowed the largest free
dom" of choice in their investments, as they
must necessarily run all the risks. It is
admitted on all sides that a scarcity of
houses is the only serious obstacle to a
rapid growth of the city. The supply is al
together inadequate to the demand. This is
conclusive proof that if there were more of
them they could be sold or rented to advant
age; and in calling the attention of capi
talists to this matter it has not been with a
view to censuring them for indiflerence to
the interests of the city, but to point out a
great public want and suggest a remedy for
it: and there is good reason for believing
that the effort in this behalf has been pro
ductive of good results.
Pittsburg capitalists are an enlightened body
of men. The most of them have made their
money here.and, natnrally, it may be supposed,
they have a warm feeling for1 the grand old city,
where all of their interests are centered, and
are not only willing, but anxious, to do all in
their power to advance Its interests, material
or otherwise. To accuse them of purely mer
cenary motives in the nse of their money would
be doing them an injustice for which no excuse
could be found. During the past few yearB,
and notably within the present year, they have
invested large amounts in buildings, and hav
ing broken the ice, as it were, it is reasonable
to snpposo that they will, year by year, enlarge
their operations in this direction, until Pitts
burg, equally with Philadelphia, can justly
claim the honorable title of a City of Homes.
It cannot be repeated too often that there is
danger in moving into a newly constructed
house too soon after its completion. There is
danger in the dampness of the walls, founda
tions, ceilings and timbers. Not long ago a
couple, just married, moved into a house, just
from the builders' hands, in Glenwood. In a
few weeks the young wife was laid up with in
flammatory rheumatism, and soon died. The
husband was prostrated by the same disease,
from .which he is still a great sufferer. Let the
house become thoronghly dry before it is occu
pied. The process of drying is rather slow,, but
may be hastened by artificial means. In any
case, however, the building should become
thoroughly dry before occupied. The authori
ties of Basel, Switzerland, have prohibited the
occupancy of a building until four weeks after
its completion a safe rule to follow.
The Oregon Supreme Court recently decided
that a aeed to real property conld not be in
validated bv parol evidence showing that there
was no consideration for its execution, when it
contained a recital that a consideration had
been received by the grantor. According to the
Alabama Supreme Court, in a late decision, the
settled rule is that a- deed will not be pro
nounced void for uncertainty of description, if
by the aid of parol evidence of extrinsic facts
the land intended to be conveyed can be lo
cated. Opposition to the Sugar Trust is springing up
in many parts of the country, and the desire to
be freed from its exactions is becoming quite
general. More than 500,000 worth of material
has been sent to Kansas within a short time.
The State promises to prodnce several times
over the total quantity of its sorghum sugar
crop for 1SSS, -and is likely before' the season is
over to invest over $1,000,000 in machinery.
Texas has already contracted for several hun
dred thousand dollars' worth of new sugar ma
chinery; Louisiana will put up over $1,000,000
worth, and Florida proposes to largely increase
her manufacturing capacity.
Sngar pays this year several millions to the
iron manufacturing industries of the country,
with the promise of an immense Increase in ex
penditures of the same nature nextyear. These
seem to be two American industries mutually
beneficial to each other.
A Hartford lady tells this true relation con
cerning her ancestor, who was a direct descend
ant of John Eliot, the great missionary and
scholar. The lady lived in New Haven, and
had occasion to send to Boston for a number of
kegs of nails. New Haven at that time (about
I76U not producing these necessaries. In due
time the kegs arrived, and, on opening them, it
was discovered that one was filled with Spanish
dollars. The family wrote to the Boston mer
chant telling him that one of the kegs held
something more valuable than nails. He re
plied that he had bought them for nails, and
his responsibility therewith ended.
Well, they were kept among the family treas
ures for many years untouched and unclaimed
until the death of the head of the house, who
in her will, ordered that they be melted and
cast into a communion service for the New
Haven church, which was done, and it is still
AGAIN IN THE RUT.
Terr Little Doing in Local Stocks Another
Drop In Pullndelpliin.
There was very little vim In the stock market
yesterday, and the proceedings possessed little
interest for outsiders. There are orders for
most of the favorites, but great carets being
exercised m filling them so as not to start an
upward movement. The tales were 206 shares,
including a membership.
Philadelphia Gas continued its downward
career under the adverse influences of short
supply and rumored reduction of dividend. It
opened with a small sale at 3 followed by
one of 100 shares at 35. In the afternoon it
receded to 3 closing with 85 bid. There
were more buyers and sellers at these figures.
There were no changes of importance in the
rest of the list.
The sale of a membership at 440 is one un
favorable commentary on the condition of
business at tfie Exchange. With one exception
it is the lowest price at which a membership
has been sold since the occupation of the
present building. During a temporary flurry
t-roH-intr out of personal differences about five
vears ago, two or three seats were disposed of
for 37a Last winter they were up to 700. Soon
after the change of quarters Captain Vander

4 Few Long! Attempting to Get Ont Soars
The oil market opened with prices below the
dollar line yesterday, and they stayed there.
The fluctuations were next to nothing,and bus
iness was below zero. The Indirect cause of
the weakness was said to be fear of several
wells about due at Jefferson Center. The di
rect cause, however, was the attempt of a few
longs to get out. The opening and highest
quotation was 99: the lowest and closing 9S.
A broker remarked: "Neither side can do
anything on a market like this. I think it
favors the shorts, but fear of not getting the
stuff keeps them from it creasing their interest.
We are tied hand and foot, and must accept
what the power behind the throne chooses to
give us. The outlook is exceedingly dismal."

oa the Sugar Trust Grangers
Forcad OfT Final Figures
New Yoek, September 24. There was a lit
tle more animation in the stock market to-day,
but it was entirely at the expense of values,
and outside of less than half a dozen stocks
of the regnlar list and the two trusts there was
even less business done than at any time since
the activity ceased a couple of weeks ago.
There is almost nothing doing in the market by
commission people, and the room traders are at
present interested in the Louisville and Nash
ville, the Northern Pacifies and one or two
others, and these stocks to-day monopolized by
far the greater portion of the business done.
Advantage was taken early In tho day of the
apatli ot both London and all domestic inter
ests to raid the list, though for the entire fore
noon the attack was confined principally to
Sngar Trust, and the price of that stock, was.
hammered down from 101 at the opening to
97K. against 102Ji last evening. The movement.
as was natural, attracted a great deal of atten
tion, and considerable speculation was Indulged
in as to where the pressure came from, bnt
large stop orders were met at about par sapy
the sellin? was generally attrlbntnd tn lnl.lwt?
Thedecllne was met by the rumor, which
seems to have some foundation, that the com
pany would apply to the (Stock Exchange to
have its certincates placed upon the regular
list, submitting its sworn statement of its
standing and complying with the rules of the
A rally to 99 followed, and at that figure the
stock closed. When the rally in sugar came
the traders turned their attention to the rest of
the regnlar list, and Louisville and Nashville,
Missouri Pacific and the Grangers, which had
been comparatively well held up to that time,
were forced off, and materially lower prices
reached all around, bnt in most of the list the
depression was for" small fractions only. Among
the low-priced snares and the Inactive list some
wide fluctuations .were scored, and Cameron
Coal, wblch so lately sold around 80, and yester.
dav at 10, was quoted at 6, and, rising to 8, fell
back again to the opening figure.
AH support seems to have ben withdrawn
from the property, and though the company's
furnace is said to be earning a big profit from
clay to day, the company, it is said, is embar
rassed for want of readv cash Aitnn mH irr
hut the strongest feature of the daywas Ten
nessee Coal, which rose from 60 to 53, and
closed at a fractional reaction. There was a
general improvement in the lit during the last
bour, and the market closed quiet and steady
to firm, generally at some fractions under first

final changes of importance are very few in

Dxab Sib Now that the people of Johns

knowledge the kindness of our friends in that
most terrible calamity, your timely aid in
sending the tents with General AxllBeaadhls
aids will long be remembered by the thou
sands who found- shelter in them. Nothing
conld have been more acceptable. The great
State of Ohio is deserving of all praise for its
magnificent gifts ot money and supplies,

fund will be over J800,000. making nearly, or
quite $1,000,000. Please accept for yourself and
your people our most heartfelt thanks.
is a Chinese physician; owing to American laws
he cannot practice medicine, so he has pre
pared a line of Chinese vegetable and herb
remedies, new to America, hut old in China,
wblch effect cures that are considered miracu
lous. He charges nothing for examination, con
sultation or advice. A frltndlv talk with Gun
rWa eosis nothing, and he charges but a small
sum for his remedies; they are pleasant to take,
quick to act, harmless in effect and certain to
cure. All blood, nervous or chronic diseases
yield quickly. Young, middle-aged or old men
suffering from follies or excesses, quickly re
stored to perfect physical and sexual health.
Gun Wa has hundreds of testimonials from
those who have been cured by his remedies, of
various diseases. If you cannot call, write him.
