A'South Fayette Township Farmer's
Views of the Harvests.
WHEAT AND fl AYCROP AT THE BEST
How Dairy Farming Pays Better Than the
WEEFS TCORK AT THE LIBERTI TAEDS
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch.1
Thursday, September 26. 1SS9. i
Joseph Hickman, a thrifty farmer trom
the vicinity of Bridgeville, who is serving
his co-jntry as juryman in the Criminal
Court this week, gives his views as to the
agricultural situation in his section as fol
lows: "In more than 20 years' experience I
do not know that the wheat, oats and hay
crops were ever better in my neighborhood.
1 met a farmer the other day from the neigh
borhood of Venice who told me his wheat
crop this season would reach 46 bushels to
the acre. This.or course, is exceptional, but the
average through the southern part of Alle
gheny county and Washington county will not
bo far from 20 bushels to the acre, and this will
be almost double last year's yield. As to the
oats crop, the yield has been 40 to 50 bushels to
the acre in my section, which is a very high
average. We consider 50 to 60 bushels of oats
to the acre an extra good crop.
Very Little Fruit.
"Aside from apples we have very iittle fruit
this summer. The apple crop is a fair average,
but not up to last j ear, which was an extra sea
son. In my neighborhood the farmers of late
years have been turning their attention to a
great extent to the milk business. The whole
tannine business has been revolutionized in
South Fayette township in my time. Sheep and
CAttln raisin- liavp. lieen found to be unnrofita-
ble in recent years lor small fanners. Tho
farmer who has 15 or 20 milk cow s has found a
ready sale for his product in Pittsburg, and at
the same time can keen his land in good condi
tion from the manure. There has been of late a
disposition to return to sheen raisins in inv
neighborhood; but the methods of fanners of
20 years aco would furnish very scant pickings
now. One of mv neishoors ships to Pittsburg
markets in the neighborhood of 50 callous ol
milk daily. The summer price is 10c per gallon
and the winter price 16c. In this way he can
turn his farm products daily into cash, and is
able to keep his farm in lirst-class condition."
Liberty Live Stock.
The live stock situation is not materially
changed since our last report, with the excep
tion of boss, which advanced 10 to 15c yester-
(lir Thp hnr-snnnlr has not been pnnat fn
the demand all this week. The same is true of I
sheep and lambs. Anything choice in either
line finds ready customers at outside rates.
Nice tidy butcher cattle are also in good de
mand. As we are passing through an era of
low prices, low grade stuff is at a discount.
East Liberty stockmen report that export
cattle coming to this market of late are not as a
rnte up to standard. Export cattle have sold
better in Chicaco than here of late, for the
reason that the offerings at the former place
are better selected stock. Those coming: to our
markets are brought down m grade by the
presence of a few inferior cattle m a load of
exports. There has been this week some im
provement in this respect over last week. But
there is large room for further improvement
on the part of shippers. Following is the
week's report of

THE LADIES TAKE A HAND.
They Propose to Ulnkc it Very Warm for the
Chicago, September 20. A number of
prominent Iaaies of this city have formed an
association and have hired a lawyer to pros
ecute the gamblers of the city tinder the
State law. The work was begun to-dav
with the arrest of John Morris, the proprie-j
xoroi a gamDimg uouse on Clark street.
The attorney for the ladies says that there is
every reason to believe that the gamblers
will very soon become frightened. The
State law against gambling is very severe.
It provides that a person convicted the first
time of the offense of running a gambling
house or renting property to be occunied by
a gambling house shall be fined 8100, and
that on second conviction the fine shall not
be less than 5500 aud the additional penalty
of six months jn the county jail, and on the
third' conviction that the penalty shall be
5500 fine and one yearin the penitentiary.
The ladies, whose names, except that of
Mrs. "Van Ardet, are not made public, in
tend to push the cases to the full extent of
the law. They are taking steps to convict,
not only the gamblers themselves, but atao
the men who own the buildings where gam
bling houses are conducted.

MARKETS BY WIRE.
A Strone Bull Feeling in ihe Wlient Fit
Heavy Trading Prices Show Gains
at the Close Corn and
Chicago-As intariably happens on a
genuine hull market for wheat, news
from evcrj where was of a stimulating charac
ter. Heavy trading was witnessed in all of the
leading futures to day, and outside domestic
markets averaged almost as strong as our own,
it proved to be no difficult matter for local
bulls to keep speculative values on the up
grade. In spite olthe heavy realizing sales the
market was bullish and big and broad.
As large outside buying orders were received
In the minds of conservative operators, there
lingered a suspicion that there might, after all
be some manipulation in the deal. A local
house with large Eastern and foreign clientage
sold nearly 2,000,000 bushels of long wheat
early, and later in the day bought almost as
much on orders mainly from outside. Early
cables to the board were firm for both spot and
futures, and late, or closing ones,.called Cali
fornia spot wheat and all futures Kd higher.
Summed up , to-day's transactions were the
largest so far on the crop. Based on yesterday s
closings, the net gain for the day was 2c In Sep
tember, ljc in October, December and May,
and lc in year.
Corn was fairly active and weaker, trans
actions being at a lower range of prices. The
market opened at jcsterda's closing prices,
was easy, offerings being large, a prominent
local trader selling large qnantuies of October
and May, which filled up the local crowd.

Good Words for Natural Gas Spoken
by a Leading Business Man.
ITS ADVANTAGES TO PITTSBURG.
Full List of New National Banks Author
ized to Begin Business.
NEW ORGANIZATION TO HANDLE KEALTT
The folly of the man who cut his nose off
to spite his face is frequently paralleled in
business affairs. Natural gas has done more
to increase and strengthen Pittsburg indus
tries, and spread her fame abroad, than any
thing else, and to attempt to weaken its im
portance for stock-jobbing purposes, or from
any other motive, is a wrong to one of the vital
interests of the city. Said a prominent business
"I am surprised at the depression of natural
gas stocks. I think it spnngs from jealousy as
much as anything else. There seems to be a
cliqne here a coterie of selfish people who
want to enjoy all the benefit of natural gas by
keeping everybody else ouU For this purpose
they coiyoct and circulate stories of shortage
in snpply, wells giving out, loss of business to
the companies, and anything and everything
else to create an impression at home and abroad
that the supply is giving out. Of course these
stories have more or less weight with investors,
who too often accept street talk for gospel
truth, and the consequence is that the stock
suffers. What was Pittsburg before she com
menced using natural gasT What Is she now? A
blind man can see the change. It lias attracted
millions of outside capital, and caused the
greatest industrial expansion ever known here.
To depreciate an interest that has done'so much
for the city shows a lamentable lack of public
"There has been a scarcity of gas for a week
or two, but this is always the case at the begin
ning of winter. It results, not from a decrease
in supply at tho wells, but from changes neces
sary to meet the requirements of cold weather.
The scarcity Is not so great as it was last year
or the year before. Indeed, in view of the fact
that the Philadelphia Company has taken on
2,000 additional houses tbis season, and that the
Iron mills are consuming twice the usual quan
tity, it is remarkable-that the supply has held
out so well. The autumn changes to meet the
Increased service will soon be finished, when
every consumer of natural gas will be abund
antly supplied. The wells are all right, and the
service will be all right. I have no patience
with people who cry down the very thing that
has given Pittsburg the greatest boom she has

The iron market has developedno reactionary
features during the past ueek. The demand
continues active, and the mills are running
full. Bar iron has advanced in sympathy with
pig, and is held at the $1 80 rate. Metal is firm
at $16. This is an advance of about $2 per ton
within the last eight weeks. The building boom
all over the country has stimulated the demand
for nails, and they are firmly held on a 2 25 ba
sis for wire and $2 for cut. The proposed syndi
cate has fallen through.
The Pittsburg Land and Bnilding Company
is a new organization for handling real estate.
Its chief object is to acquire title to land, erect
buildings thereon, and sell them on reasonable

These names of prominent citizens will com
mend the enterprise to the confidence ot the
community. The present capital stock of the
company Is $50,000, but it is proposed to in
crease it to 500,000. When sufficient stock has
been subscribed, the present Board of Direct
ors will resign and a new one be selected.
From a circular just issued by the company,
tho f oUowing is quoted:
The advantages arising from tbe aggregation
of capital, in tbe bands of an incorporated
company, used for this purpose are obvious.
It costs much more, proportionately, to pur
chase a single lot and erect a single building,
than it does to buy a block of lots and erect a
number of buildings under one contract. Tbe
saving in this respect is, in itself, a good profit
on the capital invested. Blocks of comfortable
small dwellings can bo erected and sold to
those who wish to buy homes at less price than
they can buy and build for themselves.
A BOOM" IS STOCKS.
Day's Trnd In c for 3Iany Bloons
Rtronff and Weak Spots.
Yesterday was a red-letter day at the Stock
Exchange. The proceedings were in the nature
ot a revival meeting. Captain Barbour was
happy. The brokers were pretty well loaded
up with orders, aud they didn't allow files to
settle on thm. Bidding was lively, and sales
were so disproportionate to the usual run as to
render the word "immense" not out of place as
a descriptive epithet. The transactions footed
up 1,6S0 shares, of which La Noria contributed
Central Traction was a lively feature. It
opened at 32, and. on heavy realizing, was
forced down to 31 It was fractionally stronger
in tbe afternoon on light offerings. All of the
natural gas stocks were stronger, and even La
Noria showed signs of returning vitality.
Yankee Girl was a little off, tbe best bid for
her being 4, against 6 a few days ao. People's
Plpeage was bid up to 17i, with 17X asked.
There was a good inquiry for the railroaders
and they were steady to firm. Electric and
Switch and Signal were weak and neglected.
Taking the list all through, the gains were
largely In the majority, while' the accewionof
interest on the part of the room traders was
most noticeable. Bids, offers and sales were.

OIL GAINS A LITTLE.
It Opens Steady and Closes at Nearly the
" Best Flenres.
The oil market was steady at the opening yes
terday, but without significant features. The
first sale was at 99, from which the price ad
vanced to 99c declined to 98c, rallied and
closed firm at 99'ic almost the best figure of
the day. McKelvey was the principal buyer
here. New York and Oil City were light sell
ers. There was no outside interest, trading be
ing entirely professional. The principal bear
ish influence was the Jefferson Center well
While almost everybody is bullish, one of the
Srincipa obstacles in tho way of a revival of
usiness is lack of a leader to set the pace and
excite enthusiasm. But in tbe present condi
tion of the market, and in the face of a famine
of certificates, operators are afraid to go long
or short, and tbe result is that both side;, look
ing to safety, are compelled to go slow and
take things as they come. There is a very
small opening for-a "plunger." v

Baying Orders Originate on This
Side Strong and Weak Feat
ares of the Market.
New York, September 28. The stock
market to-day showed little or no change from
the dullness of the past two weeks asfar as the
general list is concerned, and although the
tone of the dealings was undoubtedly strong
the fluctuations were as small as ever, and the
realizations of the last bonr wiped out many
of the gains made in the early portion of the
day. The London buying of Union Pacific in
particular, St Paul, Louisville, Western Union
and specialties was the feature of the day's
operations, but the fact that the 2 o'clock
prices in London were not above our close
made some suspicion that the buying orders
emanated from this side. Union Pacific at
tracted the lion's share of the attentiop, and
while the extreme rise in tbe stock was only
IK per cent, it was accompanied by an assort
ment of rumors, among which an alliance with
tbe Manitoba, the purchase of the Ft. Worth
and Denver, and a new pool in the stock were
most conspicuous, while the handsome increase
in the earnings undoubtedly had a positive in
Louisville and Nashville was largely traded
in.but the extreme fluctuation in tbe stock was
ony pec cent, and its final change is insig
nificant. Western Union became a prime
favorite in the afternoon.and the business done
in it far exceeded anything done in it for a long
time. Lake Shore also at tbe same time awoke
from its lethargy, and with Denver, 'Texas and
Ft, Worth, was a feature in the forenoon, and
reached the highest price yet attained, after
which i became doll and held steady at close
to its best figure. Among the inactive shares
there were marked movements in Short Line,
Manhattan and some others, but Tennessee
Coal was a weak spot after the first advance of
lii to 55. The coal stocks were again promi
nent for strength, and Jersey Central and Dela
ware and Hudson continued their upward
march. The trusts were dull aud fairly well
held until lateJn the day, when Sugar made
another dip, thepress lire being specially severe,
and a drop of 2 per cent resulted, though the
others were quiet and steady throughout.
The- irregulanty of the opening figures was
succeeded by strength all along the line, and,
the foreign purchases becoming very marked,
the shorts were induced to cover some of their
lines, which kept tho market slowly advancing
for the greater portion of the day. Realiza
tions on the day's rise began toward delivery
hour, but while there was some recession from
the best figures, the market closed firm and
generally at fractional advances over first
prices. The final declines are few In number
and insignificant in extent, while Short Line is
up 2; Jersey Central, IK; Union Pacific and
Western Union, each l'i; Northwestern, Dela
ware and Hudson, and Denver, Texas and Fort
Worth, each 1J; Big Four, Chicago Gas and
Manhattan, each 1 per cent. The only impor
tant decline was Sugar, 2J.
In the railroad bond market to-day the Fort
Worth and Denver firsts figured for $117,000,
while the total sales of all issnes were only
$683,000, and the fluctuations and interest In
tbe dealings were on an equally limited scale.
There were a few marked changes, mostly ad
vances, but the general run wore limited to tbe

The supply of potatoes is now fully equal to

engaged for a few weeks .past are now gather

Carload lots are begging for customers to-day

grow firmer every day. Sweet potatoes are
easy. Eggs are firm. The .upward drift of
cheese has resulted in an advance, as an inspec
