Weiixesdat, September 25. 1SS9.
The rnn of cattle this week varied very
little from last, the total bein? about 150
loads. In the supplies were 25 to 30 cars of
common to low grade stock irom Chicago.
The balance were from Ohio and Indiana,
with a few loads Irom Greene and "Washing
ton counties. The a erage quality of stock
in this week's supplies was better than for
several weeks p ist. Prices for export cattle
were better than a week as", but the quality
of those on the market this week was also
better. The best prices obtained was 4c
for prime 1,630-pound steers, which were
bought for export purposes. Common and
low grade stock were 1015c lower than last
week. Nice tidy butcher stock, from 1,200
to 1,300 pounds, were fairly steady at last week's
prices. S. M. Lafferty A. Co. sold 19 head of
Greene county cattle, averaRlng L250 pounds,
at 4e for the best.
S. B. Hedses reports the cattle situation as
follows: "The best price obtained this week
for export cattle was 4c This was Jc better
than anything sold last week, but
The Qualiu Was Better
last week. We could get better prices still if
the quality was up to standard of other mar
lets. Export cattle are bnneinc Detter prices
in Chicago than at East Liberty the past week,
for the reason that better selected stock are on
the markets there. Here our export cattle are
(renerally brought aown in price by haying
some inferior stork mixed in with each car
load. The prime have-to suffer from their as
sociations as humans sometimes have to da
Light, tidy batcher stock was scarce in our
our markets this week. and. as a consequence,
brought a shade better prices than they would
have clone a week ago."

The demand for freb cows shows improve
ment, aud anj thing choice found ready sale at
outside rates.
Slirrp, Iiombi and Hoes.
The run was light and quality poor. Mon
days receipts were ten loads, against nearly
double that number the previous Monday.
Borne six loads hare come in since the begin
ning of the week. The run being light, demand
was active and buyers were forced to pay not
les than 25c above prices that ruled a week
ago. All dealers agree that quality of sheep
and lambs offered the past few weeks is poor.
No signs of elevation in quality are yet in
The supply of hogs thus far has been larger
than last week, hut was not up to demand. The
bulk or thoe offered were ot inferior quality,
or what stockmen term unfinished or unripe
stock. The objection to the hogs now coming
to market is that the farmers are not sufficiently
generous in the use of corn for their feeding.
Choice cornfed hogs of light weight readily
crmmand the outside of the market. For all
curb orders are ulenty, but there his been an
utter impossibility to fill them. The highest
price realized for tons this week was $1 To. The
general range to-day was S4 40 to SI 60.
AlcCnll & Co.'a Review.
The supply of common and medium cattle
was in excess of demand, and trade for that
class was ery slow and a shade lower, while
good to prime cattle were in light supply, and
sold readily at a shade higher prices. We

Chicago There was a big speculative trade
In wheat again to-day, though the volume of
business was scarcely larger than yesterday.
The market was erratio and foil of surprises.
For some time it looked like a bear market,
and as though opening figures (82c for Decem
ber) were going to the top. So general was the
realizing early that prices broke nearly a cent.
Rut the bear element did not press their luck,
and before noon there was a rally ot c from
inside figures. Later the market experienced
another substantial bulge, which carried De
cember to 82K82?gC and May to S4c,
Cables were mixed. During the last half of
the session a decidedly strong tone was de
veloped and prices reached their highest range,
final closing figures being at the extreme top.
September, October and year made a net gam
for the day of Jigc, and December and May
of Jigjjjc.
Cord uas moderately actire and a shade eas
ier. Trading was largely of a local character,
though some outside country business was trans
acted in the way of selling October. The market
opened at about yesterday's closing prices, was
steady for a time, then sola off e, ruled quiet
and fluctuated bnt little, closing a shade lower
than 3 csterday.
Oats were quiet and steady, without new
features of importance.
More was doing in mess pork, with trading
chiefly in November and January deliveries.
The market was stronger and prices 10c
hieher, and closed comparatively steady.
Quite a good business was reported, and the
feeling decidedly stronger in laru. Prices were
advanced 710c and the appreciation was
fairly well supported.

A cave sparkling with gold, silver and
sapphires has been discovered in the Lincoln
mine at San Pedro, N. M which has long pro

100 feet long by 50 wide, and the s'des aie
thickly studded with the precious metals and
stones, while bowlders of carbonate were found
scattered on the floor. The -company onlv
recently refused $23a000 for this mine. The
camp is greatly excited.
At a meeting of the miners, mine owners
and business men of Denning. N. M., and vicin
ity, a strong set of resolutions were adopted
urging the free importation of lead ores into
the United States from Mexico and emphat
ically stating that the taxation of imported
lead ores would cripple the smelting enter
prises, drive Mexico to adopt retaliatory meas

Sale of the Bakewell Property on
Boss Street for a Ronnd Sum,
Files of Counterfeit Money Good Enoozh to
DeceiTe the Yery Elect.
The most important transaction in real es
tate hereabouts yesterday was the sale by
Black & Baird oi the Bakewell property,
comprising 160 feet on Boss street, from
Water to First, by 84 feet deep, to Elno E.
Clark, for 54&.000. There are eight brick
buildings on the ground, all of them old,
and most of them of little value, It is un
derstood they will he torn down and the site
nsed for manufacturing purposes. Ibis prop
erty was deeded by Thomas Bakewell shortly
before his death, almost 25 years ago, to bis
nephews and nieces, for whom the transaction
was made.
Much of the property thereabouts was in
cluded in the site of the old Bakewell glass
works. The passenger depot of the Baltimore
and Ohio railroad, lately vacated, was the
packing house. It is the only building remain
ing the or glasshouse plant. Superintendent
Patton said yesterday that he had thisbuildlng
examined a short time ago, when it was found
that the timbers and supports were In as good
condition as at first. This building, it is said,
will be remodeled for the useof the freight de
partment of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad.
William Dlckerman, editor" of the United
Statu Treatury Couhterfett Detector, is in the
city. He was encountered in the office of the
Fidelity Title and Trust Company yesterday,
where he uas exhibiting a large number of
counterfeit notes os, 10s and 20s, some of
which he had obtained from Pittsburg hanks,
they having escaped the eagle eyes of the ex
aminers. He was surrounded by several finan
ciers, nearly all of whom said the money on
exhibition was good enough for them. The
inexperienced reporter, of course, pronounced
the bills all gennine. Chicago is the head
quarters for the manufacture and distribution
of "queer" money. From that center it finds
its way to every part of the country, Canada,
Mexico, and even Europe. In the course of a
brief interview Mr. Bickerman said:
"The engraved counterfeits are more danger
ous that those made by the photographic pro
cess. With the exception of two series of
plates from which S3 bills of the Manufac
turers' National Bank, of Amsterdam, N. Y.,
and the Fort Stanwlx National Bank of Rome,
N. Y., are made, the best counterfeit plates
have been captured by the Secret Service. A
very fine counterfeit $50 bill was lssutd some"
eight years ago from a senes of plates from the
celebrated Charles F. Ulrich. The 100 bills
printed from a series of plates, engraved in
Brooklyn by Charles Smith for WilUam E.
Brockway, were but little less perfect than the
genuine. Buttbe finest counterfeit from every
point of view, was a 5300 United States note of
the series of 1869. It was about equal to the
genuine in skill and workmanship. So danger
ous was the co -nterf eit that the Treasury De
pal tment decided to retire all the notes of that
issue, and to-day only a few of the genuine re
main in circulation, and the banks receive
them only for deposit,
"Within the past year three very dangerous
counterfeits have made their appearance. The
new 3 counterfeit silver certificates are, on the
whole, well done. The most noticeable defect
will be found in the portrait of. General Grant,
which lacks the life-like expression of the orig
inal. The mole on the right cheek, visible in
the genuine. Is missing, and so is the stud on
the shirt front. Again, the entire face of the
connterfeit is lighter than the genuine. On
the medallion on the back of the note, the date
18S6 is not very distinct in the counterfeit. The
figure 0 looks more like an U.
"The new 110 silver certificate which ap
peared a few months ago Is produced by the
photographic pen and ink process. These coun
terfeits are signed by B. K. Bruce,Rcgister,
and A. M. Wyman, Treasurer; The portrait of
Robert Morris is well done. The third recent
counterfeit is a $20 treasury note. This, also,
is a photographic pen and ink sketch. The
first description of it came to me from Mr.
Vincent, paying teller of the Western National
Bank. The note presents a remarkably fine
appearance, and if it were not for the lathe
work would bear close examination. The back
of this counterfeit is not as finely executed as
is Its face. The green ink is off color. Still all
20 notes of the series of 1875, 1B78 and 1S80
should be bandied with care, as these series
have all been counterfeited.
"Two great obstacles have thus far stood in
the way of the cleverest counterfeiters, the
fiber paper and the geometrical lathe-work.
The paper known as the Crane patent, with the
fibers and two silk threads running lengthwise
throughout the note, offers an insuperable ob
stacle to the counterfeiter. The only way that
he can get this kind of paper is by stealing it,
for he does not know how to make it. So, too,
the lathe work has defied the most persistent
efforts of the connterfeiter, and consequently
lathe work is the chief feature in all bank note
There have been many profitable deals In
Pittsburg real estate within the last four or
five years. The Ben Venue plan of lots hung
fire for a long time. Four years ago the prop
erty was placed in the hands of a prominent
Fourth avenue real estate firm. The price set
upon It was $30,000. The firm pushed things,
and within six weeks sold J60.000 worth of lots,
and bad a few left. Twenty-eight houses have
been built, all of them first-class. Only two or
three of the lots are vacant.
The gentleman from whom this information
was obtained added: '-Twoor three years ago
I made a proposition to several local capitalists
that if they would furnish $1,000,000 for invest
ment on Penn avenue I would guarantee to
raise the price of real estate on that thorough
fare to $500 a foot. Steps were taken to raise
the money, but something occurred which
threw cold water on the project, and it was
abandoned. Subsequently 500,000 was raised
for the same purpose. This was only half the
amount originally required to bring land up
to $500 a foot, but it wis so judiciously invested
that it had the desired effect, ana my promise
was made good. It would require very little
effort to secure the same results on any of the
down-town streets Liberty, for Instance,
which is lined on both sides with houses totally
unfit for business, as now carried on."
Speaking of the outlook for real estate, be

sooner or later. I think business next year will

few years ago Philadelphia capitalists would
hardly talk about Pittsburg real estate. The
big municipal debt and high taxes placed itat'a
discount. But they think, differently now. I
was there a short time ago, and they listened
eagerly to all I had to say on the Bubject."

The banking business is slowly widening and

Speaking on the question of money Mr. Bus

money scare is about over, and there are only a
few days lelt in which to work the market on
reports of flurries, spasms, or scarcity in the
supply of funds. There may be a poor bank
statement this week, but it will wind up the
season, and from October 5 we may look for

call loans."

ford to OSJgC, rallied a little on local buying and
closed firm at98c.'
Outside of the depression in refined, the prinj'
cipal bearish factor was said to be the Jeffer
son Center mystery, which has been hanging
over the market for several days. Some think
it will come in big, while others hold the con
trary opinion. .What effect it will have upon
the market remains to be seen, but it it not
likely that it will have much bearing either
way. since conditions go for very little in the
present state of the trade.
A petition was presented to the directors
of the New York Consolidated Ex

Roily In Snsnr Trust.
New York, September 25. The stock mar
ket to-day was but little different from those
of the past two weeks, and while dull and
stagnant for the great majority of stocks a few
specialties showed even greater strength or
weakness. The London market was remark
ably strong this morning, and especially for
Louisville and Nashville, which, It is believed,
the foreign pool intended to keep up until the
113,000,000 new stock has been taken. That
stock was the feature of the forenoon, and in
London was up 1 per cent, last night's price
here, and though it opened at an advance of
only per cent, at 78 it was forced np to
i9Ji, aud held in that neighborhood through
out the day. Its activity was by far the most
remarkable feature, and it furnished nearly
a quarter ot the entire dealings in railroad
'liio rest of the market did not respond to the
strength in Louisville, and Sugar Trusts, aftef
opening down K.l retired to !T the lowest
price of yesterday, bnt afterward recovered
the loss when the general market began to
mend. The hears brought considerable pres
sure upon the list in the forenoon, and Burling
ton, Lackawanna and Northern Pacific
preferred were specially weak under tUe
attack. Tennessee Coal, however, was the one
strong feature of the general list, and under
what looked like pool manipalationit advanced
from 52 last evening to 5o and then on sales
of only 1,000 shares declined to 52K.
As on yesterday, the rates of money were
held high in the forenoon, but relaxed later in
the day, and in the afternoon the bears also re
laxed their pressure upon the market and a
better tone was soon felt all around. The ad
vances outside of the specialties, however,
were only fractional, tbongh some material
gains were made in a few stocks, among which
Manitoba was most conspicuous, jnmning from
111 to 115, the rise being accompanied by a re
newal of the rumors of an advantageous alli
ance with some other road. Union Pacific was
also a feature in the last hour on the report of
an increase in the net earnings for August of
$327,736. The other specialties which shoned
great strength were Canada Pacific Benver.
Texas aud Fort Worth, and Milwaukee,Lake
Shore and Western preferred.
The marketquieted down afterdelivoryhonr,
ana while there was a slight recession from the
best prices, the close was firm, generally at
fractional gains forthe diy. The final changes
are almost all in the direction of higher figures.
Denver, Texas and Ft. Worth rose 1, Canada
Pacific and Union Pacific each lii, Tennessee
Coal and Louisville and Nashville each L and
Manitoba 3.
Railroad bonds were a little more actire, the
sales reaching $874,000, but the Louisville, New
Albany and Chicago 6s, which were the feature
of the day, contributed $135,000 to the total.
The market was generally steady, and the fluc
tuations, outside of the bonds mentioned, were
confined to small fractions. The Louisville Ss
opened at 104 and rose to 106 on large transac
tions, closing at the top figure, a gain of 1 per

The situation is practically the same as at
onr last report. The demand for choice grades
of butter continues active, and prices am very
firm at the recent advance. A rise in cheese
has already reached Eastern markets, but
Pittsburg's conservatism is shown in the fact
that old rates are maintained. Tne firmness of
eggs shows no abatement. Potatoes are easier
on better supplies. The apple situation is
steadily improving, and a choice article finds
ready sale at our quotations. The grape crop
in this vicinity is reported light, but alone tbe
lake shore is unusually large, and our markets
are well supplied from that source. Tropical
traits are quiet and tending to a lower level.
