I Dairy Products Are Climbing Up, and
' Fruits on the Wane.
POTATOES AND TOMATOES EASIER.
The Fish and Oyster Supply Still Falls Be
low the Demand.
IJIPKOTED TRADE IN FLORAL LINES
office of PrrrsBUiso Dispatch, 1
FbiTjAY. October 4. 18S3. I
The marked features of the past week's
trade in market basket materials were the
advance in all dairy products, and the
falling offof fruits. Peaches and melons
are practically at their end for the season.
The few peaches still on the market are
anything hut choice. The only fruit in full
supply is the fruit of the vine.
Tomatoes and potatoes, in a jobbing way,
are lower than they were a week, ago; but
the reduction has not materially affected
the price to the consumer. There has been
no frost, so far, which has affected tomato
vines in this vicinity, and the result is that
prices are a shade lower than a week ago.
Sbortnce in Fish nnd Order.
The supply ot fish and oysters is still
short of the demand, but is better than it
was a week ago. "White fish and large
salmon are particularly short, owing to the
light catch on Eastern shores. 1 he catch of
small salmon and herring has improved in the
past few days, and stalls are airly well sup
plied in these lines. One of our leading dealers
reports that he finds it exceedingly difficult the
past few weeks to meet the demands of trade,
and, while the supply Is better than it was a
week ago, there is still difficulty in meeting the
wants of customers.
Oysters can hardly fail to advance within a
few days, as it has become next to impossible
to meet the restaurant demand lor cnoice
Poultry of all kinds is scarce and firm.
Peddlers who traverse the section within 50
miles of Pittsburg report that they have not
known the time when poultry was so scarce in
this region. Choice butter keeps moving up
ward, and the prospects are that prices will
soon reach the old-time standard. In spite of the
drop through the summer months.
Meats Like Ancient Laws.
Staple meats are like the laws of the Medes
and Persians; they change not, though prime
steers are fully 2 per cent, below the price of
a year ago.
In floral lines trade is steadily improving. A
number of prominent weddings this week have
brougat special demands on the trade, and the
prospects are that next week will still be better.
Prices are advancing, and now that the season
is fairly opened with good prospects, there is
little doubt that society events the coming
months will make heavy demands on this im
portant department of trade.
Following are the retail prices of market
basket materials, as furnished by leading

No Snap In the Wheat Pit Benrlsh New
From the Northwest A Steadier
Tone Develuprd nt the
Close Pork Flat.
Chicago The wheat market was again lack
ing in snap ana devoid of sensational features
to-day. Opening figures were on a level with
yesterday's closings, and. after numerous and
frequent fluctuations within 4r limits, Decem
ber selling up to 82Jc, off to Sl3 and back to
82Jc again, the market appeared to get into a
rut, out of which it could not be dislodged by
either side. Although prices averaged for the
day fractionally above yesterday's closing quo
tations, the undertone was weak, and surface
indications were bearish.
Trie reported arrivals of over TOO cars of
wheat at Minneapolis and Duluth, and a dis
patch saying that Minneapolis millers had re
duced their buying prices 1c in the country,
had a depressing effect here The realizing
sales early and slump to 81Jc, December,
proved to be the only feature of the forenoon.
A little spurt just at the close carried prices to
the outside figures of the day, and the market
at the adjournment showed a net gain of
Kc. x t
Corn ruled quiet the greater part ot the ses
sion with occasional periods of temporary ac
tivity. The feeling developed was steady and
prices averaged a shade lower compared with
yesterday. Trading was mainly of a local
character and fluctuations confined within
Oats were slow and easier, with trading
chiefly local. No outside influences were
brought to bear and transactions are mainly at
slightlv below yesterday's closing figures.
Trading In mess pork was very light. Prices
ruled slightly higher, and the market closed
quiet at inside figures.
Very little was doing in lard, and the market
ruled steadier. Prices ruled about 2c higher
and the market closed steadr.

trading was light. Prices ruled firmerand 2

A HOWL FOR HOUSES.
Pittsburg Capitalists Reminded That
There Will be Great
DEMAND FOE THEM 'NEXT TEAR.
Rapid Transit Causing the Suburbs to Boom
and Blossom Like the Bose.
SALT WATER KKOCKIJfGODTOILANDGAS
Gentlemen who propose to bnild houses
next year, for sale or rent, should not over
look the fact that the great need is for
small ones with from four to six rooms.
People desiring palaces to live in are gen
erally able to build them. It is the bone
and sinew of the land the toilers of all de
grees, who touch crude material and turn it
into gold that must be provided for. They
would flock here by thousands if they could
buy or rent houses at prices within their
reach. Such people are needed. Give them
a chance to become part and parcel of this
great community by building houses for them
to live in. Build small bouses. There will be a
great demand for them next spring.
Strangers who visit Pittsburg at inteivalsof
a year or two notice the rapid growth of the
city more.than citizens. What Impresses them
most is the wonderfnl development of the
suburbs. W ithln a few years they have passed
from the primeval condition from fields ten
anted only by browsing cattle and woods d
voted to picnic parties to that of thickly
settled communities, covered with fine houses
and presenting all the evidences of refinement
and comfort. A great deal of this growth is
due to the introduction of rapid transit, with
out which the diffusion of population Into the
suburban districts would be slow, since very
few, only those whose time is their own, could
arrange their business so as to make it conve
nient for them to reside beyond the limits of
the city proper. With the facilities for quick
passage already possessed, and still better
promised, the movement toward the outlying
districts will increase in volume People want
to get out of the city, which should be entirely
given up to business. Capitalists could ac
celerate this movement by building several
thousand small and medium-sized houses.
They would quickly find buyers or renters for
all they could put up.
The oil and gas operators of Northwestern
Ohio are having serious trouble with the salt
water, which, as the field grows older and the
draft upon Its resonrces becomes greater,
seems to be increasingeverywhere as a disturb
ing element, and many devices have been tried
to obviate this difficulty, but thus far without
success. The oil wells can be relieved by
pumping the salt water away at regular inter
vals, but in the case of a gas well the presence
of salt water means ruin, and some of the
greatest producers in the Findlay field are now
practically worthless on this account. In Wood
county there are a few wells that have not yet
been troubled with salt water, but the vast
majority have to be relieved regularly or they
would produco little oil, while a large nnmber
of gas wells have been abandoned on account
of its presence. The great Karg well, of Find
lay, the fame of which was world-wide, , is
among the number.
Sewickley, a pretty town nestling in a pretty
valley 12 miles from Pittsburg, down the Fort
Wayne railroad, is to have an important ac
cession to her population. Robert B. Ivory.
Esq., has purchased from W. P. Murray a lot
there, 140x200 feet, on the northwest corner of
Beaver and Nevin streets, for S3.500, or S35 a
foot front, and will build a fine residence on it.
There is a good inquiry for property In the
borough, and vacant lots are being bought up
very fast. The price paid by Mr. Ivory is con
sidered very reasonable, considering the high
character of the neighborhood,
C E. Mitchell, the Commissioner of Patents,
has filed with the St cretary of the Interior the
preliminary report of the operations of his
bnreau for the year ended June 30,1889. There
were received during the year 36,740 applica
tions for patents, SOS applications for design
patents, 101 applications for reissue patents,
1,281 applications for registration of trade
marks, 772 applications for registration of
labels, aud 2,345 caveats, making a total of
42,047. The nnmber of patents granted in the
year, including reissues and designs, was
21,515; number of trade marks registered, 1,111;
number of labels registered, 312, makinga total
of 22,941. The number of patents withheld for
non payment of final fees was 2.S5S; number of
patents expired, 11,920.
The receipts from all sources for the year ag
gregated $1,186,557; the expenditures, including
printing and binding, stationery and conting
ent expenses, 999,697; leaving a surplus for
the year of SISC.SCO, which makes the total
amount in the United States Treasury to the
credit of the patent fund. $3,624,526.
The Commissioner says that an opinion has
found expression that the policy of the Patent
Office in adjudicating upon questions arising in
the granting of patents should conform more
nearly to the decisions of the Federal courts.
There can be no doubt of this view, and accord
ingly the Commissioner believes it would bo
wise for Congre-B to require the clerks of the
Federal courts to furnish certified copies of all
decisions and opinions in patent cases for pub
lication in the official gazette.
Every now aud then the old question of es
tablishing a real estate exchange comes to the
surface in one shape or another, showing that
the Idea has not been abandoned. A real estate
broker broached the subject yesterday and
said: "I opposed the scheme at first, but have
thought over it more carefully since and have
come to the conclusion that it wculd be a good
thing for the real estate business. I was
bothered half to death the other day by a man
who wanted to sell a house and lot. He went
around among the agents to find out who would
handle the property the cheapest. Then he
came to me for a bid. I told him my terms,
but he was not satisfied, and I had to talk very
plainly to him before he would leave. If we
had an exchange sucu worry and annoyance
would be impossible. Owners would go there
for a market and that would he the end of it
until sales were made"
Thos. J. Smith, living near Jackson, Mich
who owns a patent on a wire-fence machine,
recently received a letter from the Globe
Patent Company, of San Francisco, Cal., offer
ing him a big price for the right to sell on the
Pacific Coast, also a request that Smith should
send S24 to pay for having the patent papers
examined at Washington. Smith sent the
monevand the patent papers.but United States
Express Agent Brown, thinking all was not
right, telegraphed the San Francisco agent of
his company to investigate. The result was
the arrest of a gang of frauds, the "Globe
Patent Company" being a bogus concern that
has been working the schemes a long time
victimizing inventors throughout the United
States .by receiving from them large sums of
money." Smith will probably be called to Call,
fornia to appear against the Globe gang.
Letters from the bogu concern have been
received by Pittsburg inventors.
KEXT TO NOTHING.
Apathy Helens nt the Stock Exchange
Almost a YVhllrvrnsu.
There was very little market at the Stock
Exchange yesterday. In the morning Captain
Barbour managed to find a cistomer for 10
shares of Airbrake at a concession from previ
ous prices. Nothing was done in the afternoon.
Everything was soft as well as dull. Sellers
were plenty, but uuyers few. Prices were too
high for orders.
It is a mistaken idea of some people that the
way to do business is to hammer things away
down below their real value A good bull is
worth a dozen bears any day. Bids, offers and

MONEY ALL BIGHT.
People Don't Want flinch of It Became It Is
There was no change in the local financial
situation yesterday. Borrowers made a very
slight impression upon the surplus. That there
is a snrplus'is the best evidence that there is no
stringency. If there were no money people
wonld want it.
Rates were steady at 67 as extremes. It
would require considerable maneuvering,
backed bv gilt-edged names, to get It for less.
Checking was heavy and depositing fair. The
exchanges were $2,474,888 82 and the balances
Apropos of the alarm which has been ex-
Sressed by business men, the Director of the
lint has prepared a statement or the gold and
silver coin In the United States at present,
which Shows in round numbers S617.000 000 in
gold coin, $340,000,000 in silver dollars, and $76.
O0O.0OO in subsidiary silver coin, besides $64,000,
000 of gold bullion held in the coifers of the
Treasury as seenrity for its equivalent in paper
certificates. The statement will show that
American tourists in Europe this year have
drawn on their American bankers nearly $70,
000,000; in fact, the statement of the Bank of
France from January 1, 1889, shows an increase
of $63,000 000 almost the amount exported
from the United States. .
John M. Oakley & Ca's New York corre
spondent wired yesterday evening: "There was
a further engagement of half a million of gold
by August Belmont 4 Co . but they Intimate
that their order Is already filled, so that unless
It is renewed no more gold will go out for the
present. The rate of sterling exchange does
not favor exports of gold, and if it i shipped it
will be special order. A.general feeling of dis
gust in regard to specnlation has seized spon
traders, who are unable to guess the erratic
turns to which tbemarket is subject. It Is im
possible to forecast to-morrow's bank state
ment,and everything now seems to be in an un
certain state Bears and bulls alike feel inse
cure in their position."
Money on call at New York yesterday was
tight, ranging from 4 to 12. last loan 4, closed

Stringency in Money Gives Them a Chance
to Do Some Hammering CJtton Oil
and Sastnr Trust Let Go
New York October 4. Again the money
question with the weakness in the trusts were
the great influences which dictated the course
of the stock market to-day. Before the open
ing of business at the Stock Exchange it was
known that $500,000 more gold had been or
dered for export by to-morrow's steamers; aud
it being Friday when all loans en 'call hold
over until Monday, which induces many insti
tutions to keep off the market considerable
sums of money, the money market was
stringent and 10 per cent was paid for accom
modations. This created a bearish feeling
among the traders, and with the bears they
made a violent attack upon the trusts as likely
to be most vulnerable.
Cotton Oil was pld most attention to at first,
and there was still a great deal of discrimina
tion against those shares Large amounts of
long stock came out to help along the drop.
There was absolutely no support to any of
these stocks, and Cotton Oil was a sufferer
from assertions that the price of their com
modity roust come down. The extreme decline
in it reached 6 per cent, but later sugar came
along with a drop of over 8 per cent.
Considerable pressnre was brought to bear
upon many stocks in the regular bst, but only
in Atchison was there any real Impression
made and it declined only lj&tbough it touched
the lowest price in the bis ory of the company.
In the afternoon some of the specialties yielded,
and Louisville and Nashville went off 1
Manitoba 2, and Delaware and Hudson, Pull
man and some others became prominent for
weakness. Chicago Gas was also attacked at
this time and a drop of 3 per cent was scored in
it, though tho greater portion ot this was re
covered, as most of the sales in it were short
Stock ceased to come out toward the middle
of the afternoon, and the shorts went in to
cover, which caused a smart rally,
which brought Sugar up about 8 per
cent and Cotton Oil nearly as much,
with the others in proportion. Burlington con
tinued to display most marked strength and
led the stocks of the regular list, though Man
hattan was especially strong tt; the last hour
and fully recovered its early loss. Money also
eased off toward the close, and from 12 per
cent it declined to and closed at 4. The close
was quiet and firm with the stocks of the regu
lar list within small fractions of last night's
prices, and the trusts materially higher than
their lowest figures. '
The magnitude of the trading in the trusts
may be gathered from the fact that, while the
total transactions in listed were 276,904 shares,
the transactions in unlisted stocks footed up
190,490, of which Cotton Oil contributed 77,000.
Sugar 76,680 and Lead 21,013. In the first hour,
however, the trading in the trusts was about
8,000 shares more than the business in ralltoad
stocks. The geueral list to-night is Irregularly
changed for small fractions generally, and the
only marked changes were declines of 4 in
Sugar, 2?i in Cotton Oil and Vyi in Manitoba.
The activity and weakness in the share list
seemed to have no appreciable effect upon
bonds, and they were still dull, with little or no
feature to-day. though the tone of the market
was generally rather heavy. The sales reached
