Shippers Are Kow Complaining of
Lack of Transportation
FfiOM PENNSYLVANIA COMPANY,
TVljicli is Boosting Buffalo at the Lxpense of
"WEEFS WORK AT TIIE LIBERTY TARES
Office of Prrrsntmo dispatch. J
Thursday, October M. ISKm
There is of late a good deal of growling
on the part of live stock shippers in the
territory known as the Middle division, be
tween Crestline and Ft. 'Wayne, against the
railroad management of the Pennsylvania
Company lines. The grievances were thus
put by a Liberty stockman in an interview
this morning :
"I know a number of shippers through
the territory west of Crestline who last week
brought their stock to stations along the
Pennsylvania Railroad lines, and being un
able to secure transportation, were forced to
take the stock borne or send it on to Buffalo
instead of East Liberty. These shippers
bad sent in their orders several days ahead.
On complaint being made to Mr. Clarke, of
Ft. "Wayne, whose business it is to look
after transportation on the Middle division,
lie said he could not furnish the cars, and it
was uncertain when he could. Up to date
there has been no live stock received at East
Liberty from the section referred to,"
The Cnrs Were There.
The gentleman who gives this information
also states that be traveled on those same rail
road lines within a day or two and saw empty
live stock cars in the Bucyrus and Crestline
yards, and anj number of the same kind of cars
traveling Westward bearing coke, iron, etc.
Another stockman reported that he started
with some live stock from Mansfield at 9 p. M.
Tuesday last for East Liberty, ducat Alliance
at 2 o'clock Wednesday morning. Ho arrived
there about two hours behind time.
On top of this delay came another of three
hours a short distance Irom Allegheny, where
his stock was sidetracked for a Western tram
to bo made up, when the latter should have
been sided and permitted the cattle cars to go
on to their destination without further deten
tion. The result was that the live stock reached
East Liberty seven hours behind the time they
should have reached it. Said the gentleman
-There is no difficulty petting stock from Chi-'
caco or Indianapolis promptly through to East
Liberty, but little attention seems to be given
by Pennsylvania lines to local shipment",which
I bad always supposed paid the company best
There is general complaint of late by shippers
concerning detention of local stock, and par
ticularly acainst the managemei ot lines be
tween Ciestline and Fort aync If the Penn
sylvania Company don't want this trade stock-
men would be pleased to hae notice served to
that effect so we can ait accordingly. Buffalo
is receivirg trade of late winch belongs to
Pittsburg, and which we would undountedly
have if the proper facilities were furnished by
tbe railroad system tbat centers here."
Week' Work at Liberty Yards.
It will be seen from report of the week's
work, as given below, that the receipts and
sales of cattle for the local trade were unusual
ly large. Weighmaster Dunkeld reports that
he has weighed more cattle this week than for
any one week tor the pat five or six years. A
rather strange coincidence, as shown by our re
port, is that the receipts ot sheep this w eek and
last are identically the same.
Hogs and bog products are weakening. Re
reipis at Chicago to-dav were 22,000 bead.
From the present outlook October's receipts
will exceed those of last October by 100.000 to
150,000 head. It is estimated that Octobers re
ceipts there will reach 600.000 head, aua No
vember co 200,009 better. If this is not an over
estimate hogs must go still lower. The outside
price at Chicago this morning was SI 30.

Bnlll.h Feeling in tbe Whent Pit, With
Gains All Itcnnd at I ho Close Corn
and Onts stronger Pork Quiet.
Chicago Trading in wheat was very exten
sive to-day, and a decidedly bullish feeling pre
vailed. Yesterday's big buying -by prominent
local shorts started the market, and to-day's
Influences started a further sharp appreciation
in values. A large trader sola quite freely.
The view taken by some of the traders is that
tho short interest is accountable for the sudden
turu, while others predict an era of active
speculation and still higher prices. To-day's
movement did not have the appearance of a
strained market The opening was KKC
higher than yesterdaj's closing, ruled a trifle
easier thereafter, prices receding about c.
This movement was followed by a steady ad
vance of llj$c and the clo-due wasjc higher
for December ana Hc bicher as for May than
yesterday. A rumor that the Government crop
report would show a further shortage of some
20,000 000 bushels no doubt was one of the prin
cipal influences which care lmnetus to the ad
vance of to-day. The liberal export clearance
bad a decidedly strengthening effect.
A good trade was reported in corn, and the
feeling was firm and trading was at higher
prices. The better tone and advance was at
tributed to covering by December and May
shorts, as .also the strongest feeling in wheat.
The volume of business was quite large, espe
cially in May, which ruled firm on good baling
by a large local speculator and one or two com
mission houses. Offerings of the near futures
were quite li:ht at times, but there was some
changing of October to May at 2c premium
for the latter month. The market opened Arm
at yesterday's closing prices, and under a good
local demand advanced 4c, became quiet
but firm, and closed c higher than yeiter
da. There was less doing in oats to-day, but a
stronger feeling was developed and prices re
acted Wc from the recent break under a good
demand to cover shorts. One prominent opera
tor covered a large line. Tho cash .end of the
market shared in the strength shown by May.
Provision traders obtained a ltttle rest to
day from the October pork deal. A few lots of
new pork, tendered on October contracts, were
refused to-day and sold out at auction at
S10 47K10 SO. The straight October delivery
closed nominally at $10 So.
In the general product trade the leading
f catnre was increased activity. January pork
sustained an advance of 5c and October and
January short ribs of 2c. November short
ribs were unchanged. Fur January, the favor
ite month, pork sold at 9 Sl43) 45, lard at
J5y05 97 and short ribs at $4 54 77$.
Cash buyers made rather email purchases.

Saunders admitted he was the man, and

1 Former Tiltsburger Gives the Good
Old City a Friendly Boost.
HE IS SURPRISED AT ITS GROWTH.
An Iron Broker Speaks a Word of Caution
to Busy Manufacturers.
BOW A T0UNG MAN SECURED A HOME
The following communication needs no
comment. It tells its own story:
Philadelphia, October 9.
To the Financial Editor of the Dispatch:
As an old Pittsburger, having been born and
raised there, I am glad to see, from the reports
in The Dispatch, that the city ir crowing. I
always thought it had a great future before it,
and now I know It. When I was a boy the
suburbs were either open fields or covered with
timber. Now I am Informed they are covered
with One houses and are thickly populated.
Years ago I was told that the city was finished
and ready to be fenced in. The men who held
this opinion, it they are living, have certainly
changed their minds. The rapid growth of the
city, as I understand it, is marvelous, and is at
tracting attention here and in other Eastern
cities. PittAburg real estate is talked of almost
as much as stocks and bonds, ana lam informed
that a great deal of Philadelphia capital will be
invested in it next year.
Let the good work go on. A city that builds
4,000 bouses a year cannot be kept in tho back
ground. With natural gas and other advant
ages for manufacturing, I can see no limit to
the growth of business and population. Local
enterprise will expand and outside capital be
drawn In until the good old town will occupy
the same position in tbe manufacturing world
that New York does In tbe financial. lam
proud of my native place. It was a great thing
to be a Roman citizen. It is a greater one to be
identified in any proper way with the great
cityofPittsDurg. A Fobmeb Citizen.
Increased and increasing activity is the great
feature of the iron trade this week. At tho
meeting of manufacturers in New York a few
days ago structural material was advanced $6 a
ton. Bessemer pig is now quoted at 21 75 to
$22 5a Other brands of pig havo moved up pro
portionately. Rails are firm at S32 to $33, an ad
vance of about SS a ton within a short time.
The mills are all pushed to their utmost cap
acity. The only drawback is the occasional
failure or shortage in tbe natural gas supply.
With all tbe orders ahead tbat can be filled in
the time specified, and others coming in for
later deliveries, it is a bad time to run short of
fuel, a steady supply of which should be pro
vided somehow, even if the mills havo to go
back to coal.
A prominent iron broker said yesterday:
"Business conia hardly be better. The mills
have more than they can do. It looks very
like a boom, the very thing we don't want I
am afraid tbo result will be that many old and
abandoned plants will be rehabilitated and
started up, and overproduction killthemarket.
ThU will certainly be the case if prices go
They are now almost or quite up to the
point where foreign material can he brought
into competition with the home product, and
such would nodonbt be tbe case but for the
very large demand on the other side of the
ocean. With this danger before them manu
facturers should move slowly and carefully.
Prices are high enough."
At a building association meeting in Phila
delphia, a short time ago, a young roan who
paid tbo first monthly installment ot dues on his
mortgage was followed in the line of depositors
by another young man, who purchased a home
about five years ago and has it partly paid for.
The latter remarked to the secretary: "That
man, who has just paid his dues, saved bis first
dollar through my persuasion. When I bought
my house," he continued, "I was obliged to bor
row from a friend $500 for the necessary reason
able margin, and as I fonnd it uphill work to
pay my dues with regularity and at tbe same
time pay off the $500 in $30 lots, I eznlalned to
the person just referred to tbe great value ot
having $500 or $600 saved up to be used in pur
chasing a home or starting in business. I
begged him not to wait, as I had done, for years
without saving a penny.
"The next meeting night he called at my
house and went with me to the association
meeting and subscribed for stock. That was
several years ago, and last month be took out
of the association nearly $1,000, used it in part
payment for his home, borrowed the balance
from tbe association, and is now in his own
home. I feel that I have done some good in the
If the Pennsylvania Water Company keeps

water by this evening. Connections havo been
made with abont 200 houses in the borough.
The reservoir will not be completed for a
month or six weeks, and water will be pumped
directly into tbe pipes. Nothing definite has
been done in regard to the fireplugs, as there is
a hit ch between the company and the borongh
officials. The latter, it Is understood, demand
a full supply of water for street sprinkling and
other purposes free of cost. Ine company asks

Citizens are jubilant over the prospect of an
abundance of water forthwith, and think that,
as it will lessen the danger from fires, there
should be a drop in insnrance rates, which are
as high in some localities as Z per cent.
ON ITS FEET AGAIN.
Electric fttnkln Rapid Strides Toward the
Par Line Central Stronger.
There was an unusual amount of apathy dis
played by brokers at the Stock Kxchange yes
terday. There were some orders, but they
were for cheap stuff, which is becoming scarcer
every day. Klectric continued its advance,
with very small offerings, closing at 47 bid
and 48K asked. It is on the high road to par
with an 8 per cent dividend among the proba
bilities. On account of the great public interest in
Justice Bradley's decision, the company has is
sued a pamphlet edition of the opinion, with a
preface, of whlcn the following is an extract:
"The case will be immediately appealed to
the Supreme Court of the United otates, and
the question of the validity of the patent can
not be finally settled until tbo appeal is decided
bv that court. If tbat decision is in our favor,
all users of incandescent lamps having carbon
ized fibrous or textile illnminants will bj liable
to us; if against us, they will not be liable under
this particular patent, although we believe that
they will be liable under other patents owned
by us. It will be about turee years before the
case can be reached in the Supreme Court. In
the meanwhile, all persons making and using
incandescent lamps having carbonized fibrous
or textile illnminants will do so at their own
risk. If this Sawyer-Mann fibrous carbon pat
ent were the only patent for the manufacture
of incandescent lamps, it might be thought
that the public wonld be freo to make them.
But such is not the case. There are other pat
ents owned bv us which are just as essential to
the manufacture of an incandescent lamp as the
fibrous carbon patent. Whatevermaybetbere
sult of our appeal in the fibrous carbon case, we
feel confident of ultimately securing control of
the manufacture of incandescent lamps under
these other fundamental patents."
Central Traction was stronger at 31 Tho
others were nominal. Pittsburg and Western

Local Bankers Report a Fnlr Demand for
Ponds Speculation Slow.
There was a fair demand or money yester
day, and rates were steady at 607 per cent.
The exchanges wero large, indicating a brisk
movement in mercantile and manufacturing
circles. Nearly every dollar represented in tbe
Clearing House reports is legitimate money,
speculation cutting so email a figure as to be
scarcely worth mentioning. In a large sense,
tbe same is true all over the country. Tbe
speculative interest is subordinate to more im
portant affairs to moving the crops,to build
ing mills and factories, to constructing and im
E roving railroads, to buying lands and building
ouses and to other important concerns of
That money is being put into these enter
prises instead of stocks is 6bown by the com
paratively small transactions in tbe latter, and
by the attempt to get up a money panic for the
benefit of Vall street. All this denotes ar
healthy condition of the great interests of the
country, and gives assurance of a protracted
period of activity. The exchanges were $2,254,
170 S3, and the balances $335,002 84.
.Money on call at New York yesterday was
easy, ranging from 5 to 6, last loan 6; closed

Bullish Figures Have Very Little Effect on
tbo Oil Market.
The publication yesterday of the pipe line re
port for September, showing a decrease in pro
duction of 600,000 barrels, in round numbers,
made a very slight imnression upon the oil
market, which has reached a stage to be in
dependent of conditions. The market opened

day, advanced to 99a receded to 98c, rallied
a little and closed at9Sc Trading here and

A broker said: "I well remember the time
when such a report as is posted up there would
have caused a perfect furore and sent the
market sky high. Now it causes scarcely a
pas-ung remark. Could anything show better
than this the utter absence of interest in the
stuff: There is no business in it neither in

New York, October 10. The improvement
in the condition of the money market made
further progress to-day, and the restoration of
passenger rates to Denver with the continued
encouraging traffic returns gave tbo stock
I market a bullish tone at the opening of busi
ness. Tbe fluctuations, nowever, aio still con
trolled to a large extent by tbe professionals,
who are at present on the short side of the ac
count, and thus the history of the day's trans
actions is chiefly comprised in the efforts of tbe
bears to break prices by determined attacks
upon a few stocks. Atchison 'and New En
gland were more consplcuons among these,
and pressure to sell the former found little de
maud and absolutely np .support whatever. A
tumor that tho reorganization plan was meet
ing with, unexpected opposition was circulated,
but could not be confirmed. There were
points out to sell new England before the open
ing, and it was said that a large block of tbe
stock was to be sold. Tbe two stocks men

top Oil also, and reports of a seriou' disturb
ance in the trust wete out, though it was be
lieved tbat the selling was for tbe purpose of
breaking the price to cover shorts upon. Sugar
weakened in sympathy with Cotton Oil and
Missouri Pacific in sympathv with Atchison,
though the impression upon neither was of
special importance. . The general lists were
affected to a limited extent by the weakness in
the leaders, but tho fluctuations as well as the
business done was confined within narrow lim
its, and the declines-established outside of the
stocks mentioned and a few specialties were
not worthy of ulentlon. The strong feature of
the day was the Northern Pacific group of
stocks, which were advanced on what appeared
lite inside buying, and which was accompanied
bya8torythatMr.Villard had obtained the
necessary proportion of tha stock to carry out
his scheme Orppon TransnoTitiliftntal waft
specially strong, and shot up 3 per cent from
its lowest figure, but reacted and lost a good
prcion oi tne improvement. Tne northern
Pacific's were mofe quiet in their movements.
Louis and Nashville was strong, but the
tendency to advance was checked by the per
sistent selling of the leading shares and St.
Irani sold off slightly on tbe decrease in tbe
earnings for tho first week in October. Man
hattan was strong on the report of a decision in
favor of tbe company and Chattanooga and
San Francisco moved up. Tbe Chesapeake and
Ohio stocks and the Wisconsin Central were
also conspicuous among tbe low-priced shares
for strength. The opening was made at ad
vances extending to per cent, and after
further slight improvement the wnolo market
Rave way and drooped throughout the fore
noon, while Atchison reached tho ldwest price
in its history and New England Its lowest price
since June. The spurt in tbe Northern Pacifies
helped to rally the list in tbe afternoon, buttbe
improvement was only partial and did not hold
to the end. The market closed fairly active
and heavv at something under tho opening
figures. The majority of stocks are materially
lower to-night. Cotton Oil is down 2J, sugar

Pacific Hi and Rock Island 1 per cent, while

Railroad bonds showed a little more anima

entirely due to the animation in tbe Chesa
peake and Ohio 6s. which furnished $140,000 out
of the total day's business of $31d,000. The
tone of the dealings was much better than dur

Potatoes still rule quiet, though some dealers
report a better feeling. The short supply two
weeks ago has brought an over-sopply to mar
kets, and some money has been dropped by
speculators who figured on a scarcity. The
cost of bringing potatoes from Iowa and Min
nesota is close to 25c per bushel. Tbe price on
track here this morning was 40c Apples move
slowly. Grapes are in good supply and fair de
mand. There are still a few peaches on the
market at a range of $2 50 to $3 a bushel. Bnt
as their season is practically over, demand is
light. Dairy products are active and firm, but
unchanged. Choice eggs are very firm at'out
