Office or PrrrsBnto dispatch,
MONDAT, OCTOBER 7. 1889,
Cool weather has had a stimulating effect
on'the demand for Iresh meat of all kinds,
and the effect is seen in a strong demand for
live stock of all kinds. The run at Herr's
Island was large, but the demand was good,
and in some desirable butcher stock prices
were a shade higher than a week ago.
Low grades of cattle were in over supply
and slow, but nice, tidy butchering stock
was in good demand at a shade higher
prices than last Monday. Prime Chicago

Sheep and Lambs.
The supply was a shade below average of the
past few weeks, and the demand was weak.
Prices were lower than last week, notwith
standing reduced supply. The quality of sheep
offered and the advent of hogs have haa a de
pressing influence on mutton. Choice sheep
and Iambs held up fairly well to last week's
prices on account of their scarcity, but low
grades, which were in the majority, were slow
at a reduction.

The run of 6heep varied little from last week
and prices remained the same. Markets are
steady for all good butcherinc stock, but slow
for low grades.
The run of cattle at Chicago for the past
week has been unusuallv heavy, and while
prime beeves, fitted for export, have continued
in good demand at outside prices, medium and
low grade cattle are slow and holders of these
grades are only able to sell at liberal conces
sions. In this time of close margins and small
profits anything below prime goes slow.

Spasmodic Movements in the Wheat Fit,
With Price Fovorlnc First 'One
Side and Then the Other
May Closes Hlcbcr.
Chicago There was more doing in wheat
to-day within a rapidly fluctuating and mod
erate range of prices. Trading was spasmodic,
favoring at one time the buying and then the
selling side. There is still a strong presenti
ment among the traders that some parties are
under wheat. The market opened strong, but
broke off quickly under large offerlnrs, the im
pression being that the visible supply would
show a very large Increase, and a J6X0 decline
was established. When the returns of stock
insight on the black board commenced to
show that the early anticipations might not be
realized by half, there was some buying to get
back what was sold, and also some long buying.
This carried prices steadily to the top notch of
the day, or Jc above early inside prices for De
cember and c for May. As usual, however,
when the figures were posted there was a dispo
sition to realize, which carried prices back
again to inside figures for the day. Around 83c
for December the buying by a prominent local
trader became quiet and conspicuous, and this
proved to be the Jowest point ot the day. For
some time the market ruled steady, and the
closing finally was the same as Saturday forDe
cember. and kc higher for May.
Corn rnled quiet and inactive the greater part
of the session, trading being almost exel usively
local, and fluctuations within narrow limits. A
prominent local operator was a moderate pur
chaser of year, and seller of November.
Oats were- active, weaker and lower, prices
receding -eC, reacted slightly but closed easy.
The depression was due to heavy arrivals.
Tradinc was onlv moderate in mess pork.
Prices ruled 57c higher, and the advance
was fairly well maintained.
Only a fair business was transacted in lard.
Prices were 710c higher, closing compara
A fair trade was reported in short ribs, and
the feelmg was firmer. Prices ruled 710c
higher for October and 2K5o for the other
deliveries, and the market closed rather steady.

The local Lumber Trade Holds Its
Own in Activity, Bui Ko Boom.
STOCKS LIGHT AND PRICES FIRM.
Action of Wool Manufacturers at Their
Annual Meeting Last Week.
PIG 1E0N WOULD SUFFER FROM A BOOM
The local lumber trade is active, but not
booming, owing to the inclemency of the
weather for the past few days; but there
will -be a revival when the skies clear up.
There is a reasonable certainty of six weeks
or two months of fine weather before winter
sets in. If it should be a mild one, build
ing will be prosecuted without much inter
ruption. Natural gas is a great aid to
builders, as by its use interiors can be kept
warm and walls dried almost as well as by
the heat of the snn.
Stocks of lumber are considerably depleted.
Dry hemlock is almost an impossibility.
Dealers are taking this lumber directly from
the saw, so as to give it time to season by next
spring. It is held yery firm at the recent ad
vance. The extensive nse of poplar for inside
finish, together with lleht shinments from the
South, has made It very scarce, the supply
being considerably short of tne demand. It is
held at top figures. The stocks of white and
yellow pine have been heavily drawn upon, so
that while there is enough to go round, there is
no excess. More of the latter has been used
here this season than ever before in the same
length of time. This is one of the great
lumber products of the South, and it is gradu
ally winning its way in tho Northern markets.
Btocks of shingles are also small, and they
are held at extreme quotations. Cypress
shingles are still in disfavor in this locality,
notwithstanding the claim set up by their
friends that they last at least twice as long as
those made of pine.
In explanation ot tho small stock of lumber
in this market so early in the season, Mr. J. S.
Fisher, a prominent dealer, said yesterday it
was due almost entirely to the impossibility of
obtaining prompt shipments. The scarcity of
cars on all the roads entering the lnmber re
gions, north and south, affected lumber quite
as much as it did coal, coke and other products.
The railroads were too busy moving tbe big
grain crops to attend to anything else. As
nearly all tbe yads had ordered large numbers
of new freight cars, be thought they would
soon be able to afford relief.
Pittsburg is becoming one of the Important
lumber centers of the country. It ia distributed
from this point throughout Western Pennsyl
vania, Ohio, West Virginia and Northern
Maryland, and is occasionally sent to New
York. The principal source of supply Is Michi
gan, although considerable quantities are still
drawn from Forest aqd other counties in this
State, and from the South. The value of tbe
lnmber trade of Pittsburg this year will closely
At its annual meeting held in New York last
creek, the National Association of Wool Manu
facturers adopted the resolutions agreed jipon
at tbe Boston conference on the 17th ult No
demand was made in those resolutions for
lower rates of duty on wool as a raw material,
the fixing of the duty which should be applied
to the same being left wholly to the determina
tion of Congress. The resolutions do, how
ever, complain that in making the revision of
tbe tariff in 1883 Congress reduced tbe 'specific
duties upon the manufactured product so far
beyond the reduction in the duties on wool as
to destroy their compensatory character, aqd
they demand of Congress a revision of the
tariff in which there shall in every instance be
placed upon tbe manufactured product the full
amount of the specific duty necessary to com
pensateforwhateverrates of duty public policy
may require to be imposed on the raw material.
They also ask for an increase in the ad valorem
duties, which they declare afford less protection
than when adopted, owing to the fall in values.
They are, however, opposed to any increSfeJn1

In a paper reviewlngthe situation in the wool
industry Secretary North attributed the de
pression to the agitation for tbe reduction in
wool duties, to the erroneous classification of
worsted cloths and to the introduction of large
amounts of wool as waste. The latter influ
ences, he said, have been eliminated by rulings
of Secretary Wlndom, but aetion by Congress
is necessary to -enable the manufacturers to
compete with foreigners in the production of
yarns and dress goods.
The Jron Trade Jtevtewsees danger in the air,
and sounds a note of alarm as follows: "The
very strong condition of the market, and tbe
good things yet expected, have given rise to the
fear that the present large and wholesome de
mand for all classes of pig metal may Induce a
sndden inflation in prices that mnst necessarily
end disastrously for all parties concerned.
Whatever may be the experience of others, the
manufacturers of pig iron can ill afford a boom.
Another advance of a dollar or two will not only
call into blast dozens of stacks now idle because
of improper location or want of economic man
agement but will throw open the doors wide to
the makers of Southern Iron, who will profit by
the advance mnch longer because of tbe
strength it is sure to give them later on, when
again ready to swamp this and adjacent mar
kets with cheap and inferior iron.
"There does not seem to be at this time any
special call for an advance in pig material, as
everybody concerned in its manufacture, be
ginning with the mine interests, is getting a fair
return at the present rate of iron. It is from
Chicago that a Cleveland mill man has received
the prediction that within three months steel
rails will sell at (40. Rails, it is true, have gone
up $3 during the past three weeks, but tho
wisdom of another material advance is serious
ly to be questioned."
AT TAB STOCK EXCHANGE.
Electric Money Down Bnt Holders Do Not
Logo Their Heads.
The panic in Electric expected by some failed
to materialize yesterday, holders very sensibly
concluding not to make a needless sacrifice of
the stock, which is as good as before tho de
cision, sinco it makes no change in the condi
tion of the company, which is going right along
as if nothing had happened. Only 25 shares
changed hands, all of which were takeh by
Henry M. Long. The first sale was at 46, tbe
second At 45, and the third and last at 44. It
closed at iiii bid and 45 asked. The small
offerings indicate a feeling that will probably
be able to resist a further material decline and
pave tbe way for a reaction.
Central Traction advanced on a good buying
demand to Zl. and closed with 32 asked. The
other tractions were neglected. La Noriawas
a little firmer, being refused for Beveral
hundred shares. One dollar for it is talked of
before the week is over. This prediction, or
guess, being based on late news from tho mine
to the effect that tho ore Is showing up richer

Like the weather, the banking business was
a little off in some lines yesterday, though well
up m others. Checking and depositing were
good. Discounting was the weak spot. Cur
rency was in fair supply. Fives, tens and
twenties were more plentiful than they were
last week. Country people attending the Ex
position have brought in a large amount of
these denominations. Money was reported
largely in excess of tho demand and rates
steady at 67 per cent The exchanges were
82,878,979 91, andthe balancejs $550,726 58.
As there is always a flow of money toward
Pittsburg, it being a creditor city, a large sur
plus over current wants should not be taken to
mean that business 13 slack, it means simply
that the people have plenty for all tbe require
ments or business and some to spare, in proof
of which the fact may be cited that every mill
and factory is running full tilt, and the stores,
wholesale and retail, are crowded with cus
tomers. The community has more money than
it has any use for or knows what to do with.
An easy money market is natural to Pittsburg.

Trait Conspicuous for Weakness
Nearly Everythlnn materially
lower at the Wlnd-Up.
Ne-wYobk, October 7. The stock mar
ket to-day continued io feel the effects o'f
the stringency in money. The tone of the
dealings remained heavy to weak almost
throughout the day, and -while the move
ments ot importance were confined to a few
stocks and the remainder moved only
within narrow limits, the extreme declines
ranged up to 3 per cent, and the weak stocks
did seven-eighths of the business. The
weakness in the Trusts was again tbe most
conspicuous feature of the market, but while
clique support was noticeable in some por
tions of the regnlar list, Burlington, which
has been the strong feature for the past few
days, weakened, and a drive at Missouri Pa
cific met with good success on some rumors of
a new complication in Atchison, and the latter
followed with a material decline.
Louisville and Nashville and Manhattan
were specially strong in the forenoon, and both
did much to stem the decline among the stocks
of the regular list but weakness on other
specialties such as Jersey Central, Delaware
and Hudson, and some others neutralized their
effect, Manitoba dropped precipitately in the
last hour upon an attempt to market a block' of
the stock. There were rumors of a decision in
the case of the North River Sugar Refinery,
and they helped to drive that stock down and
against bottom, but stories ot a dissension
among the, directors were used with considera
ble effect There was no news of importance
beyond the encouraging reports of the condi
tion of general business, ana the bears were
both active and aggressive, being assisted by a
leading operator from Boston and a delegation
The bank statement of Saturday was an in
fluential factor in opening the market weak,
and sugar was off 1 per cent Money was
tight and renewals were made at from to 8
per cent, while money was afterward bid up by
some manipnlation to 15 per cent The trusts
were conspicuous from the opening for weak
ness. The easing up of money gave a better
tone to the dealings toward delivery hour, but
Manitoba dropped 6 per cent and the others
again followed, the market closing weak at
close to lowest prices. The list is generally
materially lower. Lonisvillo and Nashville
being the only marked exception, with again

A. OAKEY HALL'S SUIT.
Ho Wants 83,000 Dnmnges From tbe
Antbor of the American Commonwenlth.
tSPXCTAL TELEOBAM TO THZ DISPATCH.!
New Toek, October T. Ex-Mayor A.
Oakey Hall has sued James Bryce, antbor
of the much discussed book "The American
Commonwealth," for libel, placing his dam
ages at 10,000. The libellous matter, it is
charged, is contained in an article
in that book written by Prof.
Frank Goodenougb, of the School of
Political Science in Columbia College,
entitled "The Tweed Regime," in the conrse
of which Mr. Hall is referred to as haying
been a member of the Tweed ring. The suit
has been brought in London, and it is ex
pected will come to trial abont the middle
of tbe month.
Prof. Goodenougb, said to-day: "Mr. Hall
claims that he has been grossly libelled by
a statement contained in chapter 88 of the
book in question. It there says that Con
nolly, Hall, Sweeney and Tweed composed
the Tweed ring, and only repeated the accu
sations made time and again and proved in
courts of law, that the ring had been guilty
of peculations. For various reasons Mf.
Hall is very anxious to rehabilitate his
character in the eyes of people here and in
"A humorons fact, not generally known
here, I believe, is that the Me'troplitan
Board of "Works, of London, which was
notoriously corrupt, engaged Mr. Hall to
lecture,and in the conrse of his remarks Mr.
Hall vigorously claimed that he was the
person chiefly instrumental in breaking up
the Tweed ring. I think his chances of
getting damages are very small."

A purely Vegetable
i Compound that expels
I all bad humors from tbe
5 system. Removes blotch-
'es and pimples, and
makes pure, rich blood.
The success that is attending tbe physicians
of the Polypathic Institute in the treatment of
all forms of kidney and urinary diseases is truly
wonderful. Among the many patients wbo
have been cured and have given testimonials
for publication, are Mr. H. .Robertson, kidney
disease and dropsy; Mr. A. Bchermerhorn, wbo
bad severe hemorrhages and lost three
quarts of blood at one time; Mr. J. V.
Smith, whose disease caused bim to be in
constant fear of becoming insane: a lady who
bad a tumor, measured five feet around her ab
domen, and had been unable to lie down for
over three months, received an operation and
ovor SO quarts (60 pounds) of dropsical fluid
was taken from her; Mr. Henry Walter,
rheumatism of many years standing. The
complication of diseases that are the outcome
of diseased condition of tbe kidneys Is really
alarming. If yon have weakness or pain across
the small of the back, tired feeling,
with laok of ambition, scanty or copi
ous flow of urine, with pain
in voiding it, with a red or whitish sediment,
a pale, sallow or waxy skin, or pain in different
parts of the body, you have symptoms pointing
unmistakably to a diseased condition of tbe
kidneys, and you should lose no time in con
sulting some one who makes a specialty of your
dise&se. Br. Shaf er and his medical associates
give especial attention to this class of diseases.
Consultation free and price of treatment within
the reach ot all. Remember the Polypathic
