FEATURES OF TRADE.
Produce as Viewed from a Clinton

WEEFS WOEK AT THE LIBERTY YARDS
Office of Pittsburg dispatch. 1
TnuESDAT, October 3. 1SS9. J
A Clinton storekeeper, who deals exten
sively in country produce of all kind's,
reports the trade situation for the western
portion of Allegheny county, and the Pan
handle, as follows: "Poultry has not been
as scarce for many years through the section
for 50 miles west ol Pittsburg. "We are not
able to supply demands of trade in this
line. Choice butter is also becoming scarce,
and prices are 10 to 15c a pound better than
they were a month ago. "We hare no
trouble selling all the good butter obtainable
at 25c per pound, and could sell much more
than bc can cc t.
Good eggs that can be warranted, readily
brine 21 cents per dozen in a wholesale way."
"Fruit of all kinds is in scant supply. Plums
are a total failure. Ike apple crop will scarcely
be one-half that of last year. Grapes, too, are
little more than half a crop Potatoes gave
good promise in the early part of the season;
Do Not Show Good Keeping
qualities, and in Clinton they are now selling
readily at 45 to 50 cents per bushel, while a year
ago they were a drug at little more than half
this price. Last fall at this time it was hard to
give away apples. Now they are picked up
quickly at 75 cents per bushel."
The interview with the Clinton merchant de
veloped the fact that the year ISsS was a year
of abundance, when all products of field and
garden w&nt begging for buyers, ana that this
season the situation is entirely reversed.
As an offset to the shortage of rruits and veg
etables in this section, we have large wneat,
oats and hav crop this season which was never
excelled in Western Pennswvania as to quan
tity and quality. The wet summer, which in
terfered with the keeping quality of potatoes,
vas all the while nourishing the cereal and hay
crop, and the result is seen in the largest yield
on record in thee lines. We cannot have all
we want, and a prolific yield of wheat, oats and
hay is better than large crops of fruit and veg
etables so far as public neeus are concerned.
Receipts of hogs at Chicago to-day were 23,000
head, and prices are off 15c per cwt. The range
of prices there, as furnished by wire to one of
our leading packers this morning, was S3 40
4 35. The average weight of hogs received at
Chicago during September was 2CS pounds.
This average was above any previons fall
month, and only one winter month in the past
pieht ears has exceeded this average. At
East Liberty the hog market showed a disposi
tion to seek a low er level this moraine, a fact
explained by the situation at the Western
Advices from the West indicate a lowering
tendency in provision markets. The weak
factor of trade is October pork. Pickled hams
are the strong factor. Ham and lard are fairly
The heavy run of low-grade cattle at East
Liberty this week demoralized the markets.
A large quantitr of poor stock was sold at
prices which must have entailed los on some
parties. Thp depreciation since Monday, in
some cases, amounted to 40c per cwt., and not
40 per cent., as the types made this column say
in to-day's Dispatch. Prime beeves held their
own this week as compared with last week.
The same is true as regards light, tidy butcher
ing stock. But medium and low-grade cattle,
being in exceslve supply here, have been
becging for buj ers and maritets are slow for
thi class at a reduction of 25c to 40c per cwt.
Sheep and lambs have also been drifting
downward, and to-day it seems that hogs have
joined in the movement towards a lower level.

the most part business was of a light, local

New Orleans, October 3. Mayor
Shakespeare has instructed the Chief of
Police to close all gambling saloons, turf
exchanges, pool and high ball poker rooms
to-night. The Mayor has been try
ing for some time past to get the Council to
take some definite action in regard to
trambliDg, he himself favoring the license
system, which he inaugurated when Mayor
eight years ago. The Council would not
consent to this however, and at its late
meeting ordered him to strictly enforce the
anti-gambling law, as a Dumber of com
plaints have lately been made that minors
were allowed to gamble, especially at the
Turl Exchange and nool rooms.
As all the gambling establishments are
well known, there will be no difficulty in
closing them. The Mayor has submitted to
the District Attorney the question whether
bookmaking is gambling or not. If an
affirmative answer is received, he will pre
vent any bookmaking afthe winter races

WORKEKS IN WOOD.
Carpentry Considered in its Applica
tion to Modern Buildings.
THE WIELDEE OP SAW AKD PLANE
In the Dual Character of Architect and
Builder, Shining in Both.
PITTSBUKG A CENTER OF KEW IDEAS
Conspicuous among the guilds or trades
existing in Pittsburg is that of carpentry.
It is not only the oldest, dating back to the
beginning of the settlement of the "Forks
of the Ohio," about 1764, but, next to the iron
guild, the most powerful, numerically, and
probably the best organized. Individually
and collectively, .the members of this fra
ternity stand high in their profession. They
are originators ot ideas and methods, not
servile followers of antiquated systems
Under their intelligent treatment, Pittsburg is
last becoming one of the handsomest cities in
The prominence and importance of the wood
worker's art has made the carpenter the lead
ing mechanic upon modern buildings. The
carpenter is ordinarily the virtual, if not the
nominal, superintendent of the building upon
which ho is engaged. Accordingly he is re
quired to know all the peculiarities of the
various trades which enter into the construc
tion of a building. He must be familiar not
only with his own trade, bat he must likewise
know very much about that of the mason, the
bricklayer, the iron worker, the cornice maeer,
the plumber, etc If a building is to be erected
without the assistance of an architect, the car
penter is the first mechanic consulted, and to
him is given the general direction of the under
taking. Therefore the carpenter in reality be
comes the builder, and so well recognized is
this that the two terms carpenter and builder
are used almost synonymously.
He is very frequently called upon to lay off
the ground upon which a building is to be
erected. It is often the carpenter who pro
nounces the foundations satisfactory or other
wise before the superstructure is commenced.
It is the carpenter who sees that the floor
beams are placed exactly right. It is the car
penter who prepares the centers for the brick
layer and the mason, and sees that their re
spective parts of the building are left in proper
condition. It is the carpenter, in the wording of
many specifications who must supply whatever
is necessary to the completion of the buildiner,
and which has not been included in any of the
If any new featnre of work is introduced in a
bnilding ror which there is not a special con
tractor, it ordinarily falls to the carpenter's
lot. Whatever shortcomings there may be in
the plans whatever errors have been made by
the architect it becomes the duty of the car
penter to overcome and make compensation
for. It is necessary for the carpenter to know
everything about a bnilding from beginning to
end, and the more thorough and practical his
knowledge, the more rapid his advancement
and the wider bis field of operations always be
comes There are several distinct stages in the car
penter's career First, the apprentice and
helper; then the common mechanic working
under a foreman; next he becomes foreman,
directiLg workmen under him. and has the
superintendency of the building upon which he
is engaged. From this he easily steps into bus
iness on his own account and takes contracts
for the erection of buildings
Not unfrequently he combines a theoretical
knowledge of architecture with his practical
experience as a builder, and enters upon a pro
fessional career with decided chances of suc
cess The rate of his advancement from stage
to stage depends largely upon the natural
ability of the man, his care in studying the
various parts of his trade, and close attention
to business Of coursesometbingisattributable
to opportunities, but, all things being equal,
tbat man who is the most earnest in acquiring
knowledge concerning his trade who secures a
fund of information from which he can answer
almost any question that may come up in his
daily work, and who provides ready means for
overcoming any unusual difficulties that may
arise, is likely to make the most rapid advance
ment. Carpentry pure and simple may be defined
as the art of combining pieces of timber for
the support of any considerable weight or
pressure The theory of carpentry depends
upon two distinct branches of mechanical
science. The carpenter gives his timbers their
form by the principles of geometry, and he
adjusts the stress and strain, so as to preserve
them in their original shape, by the laws of
mechanics In the wide range of application
of these branches of science the carpenter
finds ample fields for the exercise of his best
powers; his familiarity with them forms the
foundation of his usefulness and in a measure,
aside from the relative Importance attaching
to his trade, gives him an advantage over

Local Securities Still Depressed PhiladeU
phia Gas Breaks the Record.
Stocks were dull and weak yesterday. The
sales were 251 shares of which Central and
Citizens' Tractions furnished 120. There were
very few orders and they were on the bear
side. The market is still without sufficient
outside support to justify hopes of a speedy
Philadelphia gas was forced down to 34J on
sales of CO shares This is tbe lowest point it
has ever reached. The highest was about 56,
about three years ago. The decline was caused
by pressure to sell small lots, holders having
wearied of carrying theirs. Large lots coulu
have been marketed at 35 at least. It was
stated semi-officially that there will be no
change in the dividend. All tbe natural gas
stocks were dull and weak.
The laree passenger business of the Pittsburg
Traction Company iast year was not renectea
in the price of tbe stock. It was mild at 4SJ,
with no bidders Unfounded fears of another
assessment continued to hang over Central. It
sold down to 3L and was in light demand at
that Citizens' Traction was also weaker. It
is said, in explanation, that expenses are out of
proportion to the earnings even with the help
of the Exposition. A statement of the facts
would be a judicious move on tbe part of both
companies. There were no particularly bright
spots in tbe market, weakness and dullness be
ing the prevailing features. Bids offers and

OctoberSettlements Causing n Lively Move
ment In the Money Market.
October settlement's now well along, con
tinue to cause a brisk movement in the local
money market. The exchanges Saturday rose
to $3,028,510 14 and the balances to S503.310 41
the largest of the year. The bulk of the dis
bursements for interest and dividends is being
deposited in the banks The most of it will
find Its way into tho various business channels
during the present month.
Without an exception, the financiers inquired
of vesterdav reDorted monevabundant, with no
chanire in rates, only a little hardening. Un-
like Chicago, Pittsburg has a surplus amount
ing probably to J15.000.000. tjhis is a sufficient
guarantee against local stringency, unless the
Eastern flurry should become chronic, of
which there Is not even the shadow of a proba
bility. Indeed the pressure Is already easing
up, and it will disappear altogether ir a short
time, when the large amounts of money dis
tributed through the South and West begin to
return to Wall street.
In furiber explanation of the stringency In
New York, a cashier remarked yesterday : 'J
see nothing strange in it. It would happen if
there were twice the amount of money In circu
lation tbat there is It was gotten up purely
and simply to bear the stock m vket. There is
a clique of operators on Wall street who work
this racket e very j ear. They want to buy a cer
tain line of stocks at a very low figure, and to
carry out their purpose they get out the cry of
tight money, under the influence of which,
stocks tumble, and they get what they want at
their own prices Money then mysteriously be
comes plentiful acain, the cry of stringency
ceases to be heard, and things move on as be
fore." "What part in this scheme do the banks
"1 do not know that they are in collusion with
the clique of operators alluded to, but they may
be. It is easy for them to square the money
market almost any time by gathering in their
call loans. These have been called in largely
within the past few days to enable them to
make rosy statements to the Controller of the
Currency. This is probably one of the main
causes of the stringency."
A New York telegram received last night
savs: This was another day of tight money,
loans being made as high as 12 per cent on call
and the majority being at a higher rate than 7
per cent. More apprehension is felt in recrard
to tne situation man on any previous uay mis
week, and fears of trouble are expressed should
the stringency continue to-morrow. I

1 The Smith Well nt Jefferson Center Nothing
but a Burner.
Trading at the Oil Exchange yesterday
showed that tbe market was still In the Slough
of Despond, with no Christian to point the way
out. The opening and highest price was 99c,
the lowest 95c, and tbe closing 98c Tbe
slight break was due to selling at Bradford.
Wednesday's clearings were only 81,000 barrels,
with one exception the smallest of any day in
tbe history of tbe Exchange.
Tbe feeling was rather bullish at the opening,
on the report that the Smith well at Jefferson
Center was a duster, but the attempt to get up
a boom was a fiat failure, and the fellows who
make tbe market soon cave up in diszusr. It
was like Hamlet with Hamlet omitted. There
were a few sales of cash oil at 9Sc and 98c
The close was steady.
Field news from Washington county was to
this effect: Acheson No. 2 got the sand Tues
day: it is cood for 100 barrels. The Claffey well
in West End came in to-day; it is showing for a
good well. The Grayson well, which is being
watched with great interest, is showing up
rather poorly; it is quite a black eye to this end
of the field. (

Illoney nnd Prospective Gold
New York, October 3. The money market
settled down to-day with exasperating slowness,
but had not more Influence to-day than during
the past few days The market was decidedly
weak throughout the entire session, and on
some stocks the bears jumped with both feet,
aided principally by tbe fear of further gold
shipments engendered by the fact tbat the re
serve of tbe Bank of England Is down to 33.3
per cent, against 42.15 per cent last week when
tbe advance on the rate of discount was made.
There was no further advance made to day.but
the gold which has gone out is believed to have
gone there, and the negotiation of a large loan
to Brazil by tbe Rothschilus makes it almost
certain that more gold will be needed to fill the
The market opened with a steady tone, but
the bears got to work immediately, and the
pressure was again specially severe atrainst
Atchison for no particular reason, and against
Cotton Oil which had been so firmly held
through the weakness of the other trusts. It
gave way steadilv, and finally brought sugar
along with it. The Chicago people were very
prominent in the selling of this stock, and they
also sold St. Paul liberally on the decrease in
the earnings for the fourth week of September,
although the fact that it contained one day less
than last year was well known. Manitoba and
Burlington were noted exceptions to tbe rest
of the list; being strong all the way out, al
though the former had a severe setback in the
As the day wore along the pressure extended

lower. Cotton Oil lost 3. Manhattan

Pennsylvnnln Politicians Meditate No At

I SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
"Washington, October 3. Quite a
flurry was occasioned by the simultaneous
appearance here yesterday of a number
ot Pennsylvania politicians, principally
from tbe East, and tbe report tbat more
were to come. Senator Cameron arrived
"Wednesday, and persons with whom Sen
ator Quay is in communication stated posi
tively that that distinguished statesman
would arrive here last evening. Putting it
all together the conclusion was reached that
there was to be a formidable conference of
Pennsylvanians to-day to take decisive
action and inform President Harrison that
Pennsylvania offices must be attended to
instanter, and columns of sensational dis
patches to this effect were sent out last
So iar as can ha learned there is nothing
in the story. Quite a number of Pennsyl
vanians are here, but there are also Con
gressmen and politicians here from nearly
every State of the Union. Ex-Governor
Hoyt is here on private business. Surveyor
Iieland, George Pierie and Representatives
Bingham, Harmer and O'Neill are here
(rom Philadelphia to fix up the subordinate
offices of Mr. Leland's department of sur
veyor of the port. Hon. John F. Dravo is
here, stopping with his son-in-law, Attor
ney McCreery, and is talking of his candi
dacy for surveyor of the Pittsburg port.
Senator Quay is not here, and a telegram
received trom him at the Arlington Hotel,
giving directions about certain matters,
contains no intimation of the time of his nr-i
oeuaior Cameron comes to confer
with the President in regard in nnnnln1
ments In the eastern part of the State. It
can safely be asserted that no formidable
coaierence of Jf eunaylvaalans is to be

Eight years ago cancer came on my lower
lip. It took off my under lip from one side to
tbe other, and down to my coin. I had It
treated by burning, and got so weak tbat I did
not think that I could stand it much longer.
After much suffering I discarded all other
treatment, and began taking Swift's Specific,
and the cancer soon began to heal, and m a
short time it was completely healed and I was
entirely well. It is now oyer tbree years since
I got well, and there has been no sign of any
return of the disease. I know it was cancer,
and I know it was cured alone by S. U. S.
