Good Demand for Pittsburg Ele

ELEVATORS IS EAST EXD HOMES.
City Leads All in Provisions
Escape From Tires.
FLOUR SITUATION AND PKOSPICTS
OFFICE OF PnTSBCKG DISPATCH, 1
Tuesday. October 1. 1SS9.
A recent interview with a member of the
Marshall firm, the only concern of this city
engaged in the manufacture of elevators,
developed some facts of interest hitherto,
doubtless, unknown to many readers of this
column. It was learned in the interview
that elevators lor fine private residences
have become quite popular in the East End
the past two years. The elegant mansions
of E. Schwartz, Charles Lockart, the late
"William Thaw and a number of others, are
thus provided with equipments for lifting
inmates toward the skies. In the fine new
residence of "William Thaw, which the
builder was not permitted to occupy, this
provision was introduced on account of his
rheumatic troubles, which interfered with
the comfortable climbing ol stairs.
A Preacher Hus One.
"Within the past few weeks a Pittsburg el
evator has been placed in one of the finest
residences of Denver, namely that of Rev.
Dr. Buchtel, pastor of the leading Metho
dist Church of that city, and one of the finest
of the land. Dr. Buclitel's wife is a daughter
of P. T. Barnum. and in her letter ordering the
elevator, sue nid: "You bare probably heard
of my father." It is a coincidence that the
(Treat American showman should have a son-in-law
running one of the moet elegant Methodist
churches of the country. The Denver church
over which Dr. Eucbtel presides is provided
witn an orcan which cost 30,000, and the
building was erected at a cost of more than
5100,000. The ministers' wives who can afford
to put elevators in the:r homes do not abound,
but P. T. Barnum's daughter is an exception
to ordinary rules, as her father before her was,
An elevator is certainly not an inappropriate
pmvision in a minister's home, and Pittsburg
rejoices in being able to assist in rai&Ing Den
ver people toward the skies.
The Escnptnc Demand.
It was ascertained in the interview that the
demand for fire escapes represented by this
firm and two others m this city is active. It
was pleasant to learn that Pittsburg public
school buildings and other large public build
ings are more generally provided with lire es
capes than any other city of the land. It is the
exception here and in Allegheny where large
public buildings are not so provided.
The fact was recentlj referred to in a Cincin
nati paper that Pittsburg was tar ahead of that
city in provisions for escape in case of fire. It
seems that Pennsylvania laws are more
stringent in requiring such provision than
those of an j other State in the Union. And of
Pennsylvania cities Pittsburg has come near
est to conforming with the letter of the law.
The Flour situation.
E. H. "White, of LaCrosse, Wisa representa
tive of large milling interests of that city, and
a member of the New York Produce Exchange,
was one of the visitors at the Pittsburg Grain
He said: "The quality of wheat in the North
w est has not been better for 20 years than it is
this season. The recent rise was legitimate,
because farmers have been holding back their
good grades. Minnesota spring paten; flour
had little show in Eastern markets last seasoD.
Winter wheat patents could be sold so much
cheaper that our Northw estern flour was prac
tically excluded lrom Pittsburg and other East
ern markets. Winter wheat was much better
lnqualit) lastj ear than this. Son the spring
wheat sections are having their innings.
"The quality is extra good, and it takes mnch
less oi it to mate a narrei ot Hour than it did a
year ago. The short crop in Europe is already
making heavy demands for export, and as
much again will go abroad this year as last.
"AH that is wanted now is that speculators
keep their hands off, and we are bound to hate
nice profits all around. The miller and jobber
will come out all right this season if that bane
of American trade, the speculator, can be sup
pressed." LITE STOCK 3IAKKETS.

Chicago. Wheat, after a barely steady
opening, again advanced abont 1c before
noon, where it hung for sometime. The smaller
class of traders were all pretty well loaded, at
the start, and as the boar element were quite
conservative in their movements, Holders
showed no disposition to weaken. There was
at no time, in fact, any prossnre to sell, and the
market rallied well from all weak spots, not
withstanding the increased interior movement
and fine weather everywhere.
Half an hour or so before the close there was
a substantial reaction, and some of the early
improvement was lost. The extreme weakness
at the finish was dne to depressed late private
cables, and the free selling here by New York
parties. The latest bids were Kc Under yester
day's closing, and lljc off from the best
prices of the day.
A good business was done in corn, which was
easy early and later somewhat firmer, but re
acted some with wheat The market opened
rather weak t about yesterdav's closing prices,
was easy and sold off yv Offerings of October
were quite liberal, about 2,000,000 bushels being
delivered on contracts. It closed a shado
loner than yesterday.
Oats were quiet and steady, and without new
features of interest.
Trading was only moderate in mess pork,
and the feeling was steadier except for October
delivery; outside of October, prices were ad
vanced 510c but not supported to the close.
Not much doing in lard, and the feeling
steadier. Prices ruled 2c better, and the
market closed quiet.
In short ribs the inquiry was moderate and
offerings rather light. The feeling was steady,

RUSHING INTO DEBT.
A Gentle-Beininder to the Braddock
Autlioritiesto Go Slow.
NEARLY $200,000 PILED UP.
Interesting Pacts Connected With the Man
ufacture of Queer Honey.
LOSS AND BEC0YEEI OP A GOLD DOLLAR
The authorities of Braddock are unques
tionably level-headed and well ripe in
business methods, or they would not occupy
the positions they do; but are they not rush
ing into debt rather fast, and with too little
regard to the Tact that payday is inevitable?
There have already been placed water bonds
amounting to $85,500, bearing 5 per cent
interest; street bonds, 515,000, 6 per cent,
and school bonds, $30,000, 5 per cent. In
addition, sewer bonds for $60,000 are now on
the market, making a total of $190,000, a pretty
neavy load for a small place to carry.
Commenting upon this state of affairs, a
prominent citizen of Braddock said yesterday:
"I think the authorities should call a halt, in
the matter of issuing bonds. Taxes are almost
as high as they are in Pittsburg. They amount
to about $25 000 a year, not counting the school
tax. This is a large amount of money, and
should pay for a great many improvements.
But what is there to show for It? I believe we
have hut one paved street. Too much attention
is paid to mud holes. 1 am not kicking particu
larly, but I don't want to see the borough
saddled witn unnecessary Indebtedness, and
consequent ruinous taxation. That would
repel capital and population the very things
that we need to build np the town. I think a
little more conservatism in the management of
our fiscal affairs would be profitable for all con
cerned." The indications are that the month which
began its career yesterday will witness the
greatest expansion of business during the year.
The dividends and Interest disbursed by the
banks and other corporations will set free a
large amount of capital probably $2,000,000 in
Pittsburg which will be invested in various
ways, giving employment to labor and swelling
the already large volnme of transactions.
Manager Chaplin, of the Clearing House, is
hopeful of a large increase in the exchanges.
He said yesterday that be would not be sur
prised if they reached a daily average of
$3,000,000 by the end of the mouth. He is con
fident that the close of the year will find Pitts
burg ahead of Baltimore. A notable feature
of business this year is its easy and gradual
growth! Unheralded and almost unnoticed, it
has emerged from summer dullness to autumn
activity. Cashiers, clerks and others who a
few weeks ago were connting their fingers, are
now connting money. The revival has a sub
stantial backing. There is a good demand for
almost every product of the mills, factories
and shops, and nlenty of money to pay for it.
Concerning the money market, a Pittsburg
authority said yesterday that the tightness re
ported in New York was not unusual at this
season of the year. The large amonnts sent
South and West to move the heavy crop3 of
cotton, wheat and corn would soon find their
way back and relieve the pressure. There is no
danger of a permanent squeeze. Capital bad
been scattered instead of concentrated at a few
points. That was all. It wonld soon be con
centrated again. The East might suffer a lit
tle, but the West would not feel it.
There have been a good many ways of mak
ing "queer" money. Like all other experts,
the shovers of the queer have made great im
provement in their art within the last ten
years. First came the photographic bank
notes. They were made in two ways, known to
experts as the "old" and the "new" methods.
By the "old" photographic process the letters,
numbers, and sometimes the whole back of a
note were copied in black. Then they were
tinted with a pen and brush by hand in order
to exactly reproduce the colors on tbe original.
This method of "queering" money has about
disappeared. By the "new" method, the seal,
numbers and color work on a bank note arc
first removed. A negative is taken from tho
black which remains, and from this photo
graphs are printed on sensitized paper. In or
fier to get tbe colors an engraved plate is used
for all the tinted parts of a bank note. Thus,
the numbers are printed as in the genuine, in
colors from an engraved plate.
Another process of "queering" money is
known as "piecing." This consists In cutting a
counterfeit into eight or ten pieces. One ot
these pieces is pasted into a genuine note by
cutting out a piece of the good note. By past
ing, for example, nine good bills in this way.
nine other pieces are obtained which, with one
piece of the "queer," will make a tenth note.
There is again the process known as "rais
ing." This is done by scraping a good note
until it is very thin, and then pasting in figures
or letters of a higher denomination. In this
waya five-dollar bill is speedily raised toa fifty.
Perhaps tho most expert "raiser" of money
ever in the United States is Pete McCartney,
who was arrested last year in New Orleans for
raising one-dollar bills to $50. He has been en
gaged in counterfeiting for 40 years and is now
a man over 60. Out West he is called the "King
of tbe Koniackers," and the account of his ad
ventures as given in the secret service records
reads like a romance.
Still another way of "fixing" money is to
change the figures of a note by tbe use of acid;
a higher numter of figure is printed in the
place from a plate. It is very difficult for the
counterfeiter to keep the acid from staining or
bleaching tbe paper. If the chemicals spread
then tbe surrounding letters present more or
less of a damaged appearance.
An interesting story Is told of a long search
.for and final recovery of a gold dollar. A
yonng lady in Lambertville, N. J., had a gold
dollar with a monogram inscribed upon it,
which had been the subject of a great deal of
attention. It was attached to a bracelet by a
chain. One evening in February, altera sleigh
ride, she missed it, and the broken chain
showed plainly how it had disappeared. Search
was at once made, but without avail. Finally
an advertisement met the eye ot an habitual
loafer about town. He went to the honse and
said that he bad found the dollar below the
steps of tbe sleigh the morning after the ride
and had spent it for whisky at a saloon.
The friends of the young lady
determined to find the keepsake for her it pos
sible. The bartender remembered receiving
the coin, but had paid it oyer to a butcher.
The latter recollected paying it to a drover In
Trenton. Tbe address of tho drover was
secured and a letter written him, reqnestiug a
reply at once. It soon came, and contained the
Information that he had purchased a ticket to
Philadelphia with the money on the very day
the butcher had given it to" him, and that the
ticket agent had then remarked about the mon
ogram. The search was continued. The agent
remembered tne aouar, ana saia tnat he laid it
aside for a few hours, but that it was for
warded to Philadelphia with tbe daily ac
counts. Tbe receiver of the New Jersey receipts at
Philadelphia was next corresponded with.
Tbe beautiful monogram bad been noticed,
but tbe money had been deposited in the bank.
The cashier was commnnlcated with. His at
tention bad been called to tho initials on the
back of the dollar by one of the clerks, and he
had Instructed him.to place it aside for a few
weeks. Unfortunately, in the absence of the
clerk, a gentleman desiring several hundred
dollars in gold, preparatory to a California trip,
had been furnished with the amount, and the
little piece had in some way been mixed with
that sum and gone westward, ine gentleman's
name was furnished and a letter was sent him.
The remainder- of the spring and summer
passed with no tidings of tbe lost bauble.
Finally, however, a letter was received from
the gentleman stating that the letter had been
uelayed owmg to a mistake in the address, and
had just reached him, but that he still had tbe
dollar in his possession. The initials were the
same as those of a young friend of his, and he
had kept tbe coin orrthat account. On receiv
ing tbe proper direction he promptly returned
tbe gold dollar so persistently searched for,
the curious history of whose wanderings affords
an excellent example of how fait money travels.

Electric nnd La Norla Weak Features of
the Stock Market.
Yesterday was An off day at the Stock Ex
change. The small knot of brokers who faced
tbe board had more heart for fun than busi
ness. Captain Barbour was absent in the after
noon, fighting the war over again with his old
comrades, and J. D. Bailey wielded tbe gavel.
Between them tbey managed to dispose of 125
shares of Philadelphia Qas at a slight conces
sion. The weak spots were La Norla and Elec
tric, the former in consequence of the recent
exposure, and the latter presumably occasioned
by the unaccountable delay in promulgating
the pending decision. There were no other
features. Bids, offers and sales were:

A SMALL K0TE FAMINE.
Unacconntnblo Scarcity of Five, Ten
Twenty Dollar Bills.
There was a general complaint among bank
ers yesterday of a dearth of five, ten and
twenty dollar notes. A cashier, in explanation
of the famine, saidi "I havo never known a
time when bills of the above denomination
were so scarce. None of them are being paid
into the Clearing House, gold and silver being
used instead. Large amounts have been re
ceived from Washington, but without relieving
the pressure. Where they go, how they are so
quickly absorbed, is more than I can tell.
Large amounts have been sent to Johnstown,
but they should have fonnd their way back
before this. It has been suggested that certain
banks are hoarding them, and this is about as
good an explanation as any. One's and two's
Business was of good proportions, especially
checking and depositing, tbe former being
heavy. Discounting was fair, bnt not as heavy
as desired. It was said two or three of the
banks were about loaned up to tbe reserve
line. The majority of them, however, reported
an excess of cash, but with a good prospect of
finding employment for the bulk of it during
the present month. There was no change in
rates, which may be quoted at56c on call and
67c on time. The exchanges were $2,181,
593 74 and the balances $420,570 80. showing a
brisk movement in legitimate trade, specula
tion being nowhere.

The trouble seems to be that the holders lof
Government bonds do not want to loan their
money in Wall street, and consequently are in
different as to the rate. The disbursements of
October interest by the treasury ought to put
new tunds into circulation, but so far this
week the banks are losing, and unless they get
relief by bond sales, gold imports or a return
flow of currency from the interior tbey can
hardly avoid losing this week their entire sur
plus over legal requirements.

Weakness predominated at the opening of
the oil market yesterday. It strengthened up a
little in the afternoon, but lost its grip again
and closed under a cloud. Wnat little ac
tivity there was, was caused by changing op

was a light buver. The opening figure was 99.
The highest 99. the lowest 98, aud the clos

ferson center or the Gallery Junction wells, but
a prominent bull said be was satisfied. They
lacked staying qualities. This bad been dem

time would prove it true in regard to the latter.

Butler, October 1. At the CalleryWild
Cat gusher there were preparations for war
last night. Sheriff Redic was on the lease all
night, while a lawyer slept at tho nearest
'Squire's. Though there was some lumber
hauled on tbe lease by one of the claimants,
there was no violent disturbance. On the
streets of Butler since early this morning
there has been a running fight between the
various parties interested. There were two or
three exciting scenes in the lawyers offices, and
until late this evening bitter litigation was
threatened. At 8 o'clock a compromise was se
cured bv the efforts ot Showalter Bros.,Wahl,
Bishop & Co. and O. M. Russell, of Butler, pay

Prevents a Bad Slump in Railroad Shares
as a Consequence of the Jump la
tho Rates for Money
New York, October 1, The stock market
maintained about the same volume of business
to-day in the regular list, but the unlisted de
partment was much less active, while the weak
stocks of the past few days were more quiet
and moved within comparatively narrow limits,
aad tbe range of prices in most stocks was ex
tremely small. There were few features of in
terest in the transactions, bnt considering the
high rates exacted for money the market was
remarkably well held and shows conclusively
that strong hands are In possession of the stocks
in this market. Money on call to-day loaned as
low as 6 and as high as 18, but there was a de
cidedly easier feeling at the close of the busi
ness. Tbe dealings to-day were smaller outside
of those of the professional element, and while
London houses were sellers to a limited extent.
Chicago people were doing almost nothing and
tbe traders were bearish for a turn. There was
no pressure to sell in any portion of the list and
while the traders did sortie hammering tbey
brought out very little stock, though thero was
again some liquidation induced by tbe scarcity
oi money and tbe engagement ot $500,000 gold
for export had for a time a depressing effect
Atchison was still the central figure in the
market, and altbongh tbe covering of shorts in
the stock has been very heavy dorm? the naat
few days, the short interest is still of resDect-
able proportions, and to-day the stock was sold
en tbe advances, and showed evidences of sup
port on me ueciines. it is saia tnai a large
speculative interest has begun to buy it for a
turn, but the principal reason for the steadier
tone to-day was the payment of tbe October in
terest. The coal stocks were not so strong, and
Jersey, after selling up to 131, settled back to
127 on the marketing of a block of stock. The
Grangers were attacked upon the report of the
Burlington for August, which was not so favor
able as had been expected. Manhattan was the
one positively strong feature of the day. and it
rose to 105 and closed at 105 on what appeared
as manipulation. Pullman was also specially
strong on western buying, and the remarkably
good statement of tho Louisville and Nashville
did much to support that stock. The export of
gold was inexplicable upon any grounds known
to the street, and no explanation was to be had
at the banking house which ordered it, and tbe
effect upon the market was depressing in the
The opening prices were generally lower, the
declines from last evening's prices extending
to per cent, and while the first fow minutes
saw a declining tendency in prices led by
Atchison, a full and decided recovery took
place, with Manhattan leading tbe upward
movement. The reactionary tendency ap
peared as money crept np, and in the after
noon all the early gains were lost, the Grangers
being the special point of attack, and Man
hattan dropped 2 per Cent. Toward the close a
better feeling existed as money gave signs of
easing up, and the close was dull but firm,
though still at small fractions below tbe open
ing prices. The list is generally lower to-night,
but there are no important declines, while
Manhattan rose 2 and Pullman 2 per cent.
The trading in railroad bonds was still
smaller than tbe limited business of the past
few days, reaching only $606,000. Tho market
was steady to firm as usual, and tbe changes in
quotations were confined to the same narrow
limits. Iron Mountain, Arkansas 7s, rose 2 to

Country Produce Jobblnjr Prices.
The Elgin Butter Board at their regular Mon
day meeting reaffirmed prices of last week, and
everything offered found ready sale at last
week's rates. Cheese has been advanced, as
our quotations will disclose, and at the advance
markets are very firm. Tbe demand for 'good
eggs is active, bnt prices are unchanged. In
fruit lines peaches are slow, chiefly because of
the poor quality on the market Grapes are
weaker on account of liberal receipts. Oranges
are firm, lemons weak and bananas steady.
Both Irish and sweet potatoes are quiet and tbe
drift is toward a lower level of prices. The
sharp advance in potatoes last week has brought
a good supply from Indiana and Illinois to our
markets and prices are a shade off. Tbe bulls
who are working the potato famine for all and
more than there is in it are doomed to defeat
in their effort. It is true that in this and many
other sections the keeping quality of potatoes
this season is poor, but in the West the crop is
extra good both as to quantity and quality.
Alrtbe bull talk abont potatoes going to $2 a
bushel is simply bosh. The yield in the coun
try is a full average, and if potatoes go to $1 a

There is little change in the cereal situation
since our last report. Choice grades are firm
at quotations, but lowgrade stuff moves slowly.
Tbe.upward movement of wheat has been ar
rested. Flour is moving freely, but if reports
are true, tbe active movement is due to conces
sions on tbe part of the seller. Thero is little
doubt that considerable cutting is going on,
and that the cash buyer can do a shade better
than our quotations.

SHE HAD CONSUMPTION !
SO THE DOCTORS SAID.
"1 had a short, hacking cough, tightness In
the chest short breath, and I felt tired all the
time. As I grew weaker I suffered with
those terrible night sweats. My father took me
to 20 physicians who said I could not be cured.
I doctored with many physicians, but got
no better. After 14 years of suffering I began
treatment with tbe physicians of tbe Catarrh
and Dyspepsia Institute, 323 Penn avenue, to
whom I owe my recovery. Sly cough is gone.
I have no dizziness, ringing In the ears, head
aohe or night sweats any more. The pain and
soreness in my stomach have lett me. My food
digests well, so tbat now no gas forms in my
stomach. My throat used to be so sore I could
hardly swallow. Tbat is cured. I feel well
and strong, and why should I not praise these
doctors for thus saving mo from such an un
timely deathf MISS LYDIA MORGAN. Kear
