Market basket materials are very much
as they- were last Saturday as to cost There
are still a few peaches and pears on the
f.-uit stalls, but anything choice in this Hue
hails from the Pacific slope. Grapes are
now at their best. Every variety at reason
able rates is to be had for next Sunday's
dinner. The home crop is below average,
but Ohio and New York are coming to our
rescue, and the fruit of the vine is here in
The first killing frost of the season put in
its appearance on the Dili or October. To
matoes arc, however, in full supply, and
will be for weeks to come, as gardeuers have
laid by in store a sufficiency for the present
month at least.
ltetail prices of vegetables are practically
the same as a week ago. The same is true
as to fruits, though the field for selection is
more limited than it was last Saturdays
Dairy products of all kinds have been active
the past week but prices are unchanged.
Its Stimulating Effect.
The cool weather has had a stimulating
influence on trade in this line. Reliable
eggs are scarce and higher. Poultry is com
ing in more trecly from the West. "Western
Pennsylvania's crop of poultry is unusually
light, and prices would be out of reach of the
ordinary purse it the West did not come to
The better grades of fish and oysters are
still in scant supply, though there has been
an improvement in this respect the past
week. White fish ana large salmon are still
short of demand, owing to late storms on
the lakes which prevented the lifting of
Oysters of the higher grade are scarce and
firm". Baltimore packers complain that they
are losing money at present prices, and all
agree that an advance must soon come.
t One Bit Fridnj'n Work.
A Diamond Market fish dealer reports
that he cleaned over a ton of fish this morn
ing, and sold oysters in proportion. Friday
and Saturday are the great fish days and the
trade for these days is larger than all the
balance of the week.
Florists report a steady improvement of
trade. The wedding business is on the
boom, and this week has been the best of the
season in this line. There is a very large
ran of late for orchids for bridal bouquets.
From now until the holidays the floral trade
will be at us best, and the outlook far a lively
society time wis never brighter in this neck of
the woods than it is to-day.

MARKETS BY TOE.
A Break In Wheat Caused by the Govern
ment Crop Kcport A Weak Closing
at Bottom Price of
Chicago The Government crop report
made public yesterday, placing the yield of
uheat per acre at 12.8 bushels, making an ag
gregate yield of about 495,000,000 bosh els, had
the effect of causing a very weak opening to
day, prices being IJiQlJic below the closing
yesterday. The market did not act strained
jesterday notwithstanding the sharp advance,
but traders had calculated on the report not
showing a crop of over 455,000,000 bushels. The
more favorable showing of the report was a
disappointment to the hulls, which caused a
general unloading of long wheat, those who
had not sold yesterday being anxious to
realize, and the decline was rapid. Especially
was the break from the close of 'Change yes
terday to the opening to-day unfortunate to
parties having stop limit orders.
The action ota prominent local trader who
bought very freely, presumably to cover
"shorts," did much to prevent a further break
in prices, the markets for a time being quite
panicky. There was less talk of export busi
ness to-day. All wheat came on the market
and the short interest it is thought, is pretty
ell covered. Prices declined to a point 2c
for December and 2Hc for May below jester
day's outside or closing prices and closed at in
side figures of the day.
A good business was transacted in corn, and
the teeltng developed was easier, the bulk of
the trading being at lower prices. The easier
tone was attributed largely to the decline in
wheat The market opened Jc under the
closing yesterdav, sold off a trifle, but under a
good demand from shorts advanced Jc, re
acted, losing the advance, became firmer, and
closed a shade lower than yesterday. A feature
to-day was the narrowing of the premium of
May over the nearer deliveries. The Govern
ment report would indicate an increase in the
yield of about 90,000,000 bushels of that one
Oats were unsteady, with fair trading in May,
but very little doing in othei deliveries. Tho
weakness in wheat had a depressing effect and
under fair selling prices" for May declined K
c from yesterday's close. Buying by a prom
inent operator, however, caused a reaction of
Jc, and the market closed steady at Jc below
The provision trade was somewhat feature
less. In the open market October pork was
traded in sparingly at $10 50. General trading
was slow. There were no large individual pur
chases. Prices displayed an easier tendency.

THEI WILL EEMALN.
The Prospect for the EemoTal of
East Liberty Stockyards
GONE ENTIRELY 00T OP SIGHT.
Natural Gas is Discussed at a Meeting of
Iron5nd Steel Experts.
WEEING WOMEN IN THE LARGE CITIES
It is probable that the stockyards will re
main indefinitely at Torrens. This is the
opinion of a real estate broker doing busi
ness in that neighborhood, who said yester
day: "The recent improvements in the
yards, consisting of new pens and buildings,
and the talk of enlarging them as soon as
the railroad shops are removed to Wilmerd
ing show pretty clearly that they are to re
main where they are. They spoil one of
the finest districts in the East End, for
people do not want to live near them. If
they were taken away the ground occupied
by them would sell with a rush, and would
soon be covered with houses. As it is, lots
in that vicinity are slow sale, and do not
brin anything like their value as com
pared with other East End property. The
railroad company could get a great deal of
money for the ground occupied by the yards,
and it seems to me they would make money by
selling oat and going to Walls, where they own
a large tract of land.
"One of the objections to this is the alleged
difficulty of securing a sufficient suoply of
good water, but it might be obtained frbm
Braddock or Wilkinsburg, both of which places
have water-works,or from artesian wells. This is
only an excuse. The fact is the company find
tho yards so profitable that they are afraid to
run the risk of removal, since the greater dist
ance that butchers and drovers would have to
travel might cause a diversion In favor of the
Allegheny yards. So, as they are coining
money, I suppose the yards will be kept where
they are, and the people thereabout be com
pelled to submit to the nuisance or move away."
At the Paris meeting of the Iron and Steel
Institute, the natural gas of the United States
was alluded to by Sir Lowthian Bell in the
course of his address. On this point he said.
as specially reported in the Imerfean Manu
facturer and Iron World :
"As regards the American gas, which I saw
in use so long ago as 1876 in Pittsburg, any
comparison between it and a factitious gas is,
in my judgment entirely illusory. In Penn
sylvania a mere hole is bored in the ground;
this taps the subterranean store, which rushes
to the surface nnder a pressure of 200 to 300
pounds on the square inch, and the gas is then
impelled along a pipe by its own elasticity to
the very furnaces at which it is to be consumed.
To obtain producer and water gas a much
larger and infinitely more expensive hole, or
holes, have to be dug and fitted with costly and
powerful machinery. Besides working coal at
great cost vast volumes of air and great
weights of water have to bo set in motion. The
coal has then to be transported, often for many
miles, along a railway, and converted into gas,
mixed with an enormous volume of inert nltro
gcn,instcad of an almost pure combustible sub
stance like that found in America."
Such was Sir Lowthian's 'comparison be
tween water gas and the Pennsylvania natural
His figures as to the cost of manufacturing
water gas and the amount of heat derived from
it for metallurgical purposes were severely
criticised by Mr. Wildy, the engineer to the
Leeds Forge, and Mr. Head, of London, who
appeared to be of opinion that while water gas
was better than producer gas for metallurgical
purposes, it was very much more costly. Mr.
Kupelwelser (manager of Baron Rothschild's
works in Austria), thought the inventors of
water gas were a little too sanguine. Mr. Dow
son thought there was no general rule in prac
tice as to whether solid fuel was more econom
ical than gaseous fuel. In some cases it was
better to have one and in other cases it was bet
ter to have the other.
Water gas projects in America was the stand
point from which Mr. Loomts approached the
subject. At the works with which he was con
nected they got 35,000 to 40.000 feet of water
gas from a ton of slack coal. The producer gas
was under two inches. It was made with an
exhaust instead of a blower. Everything was
taken down throuch the coal. The air was
passed down through the coals and the tar and
everything was converted into gases and it
went off as a fixed producer gas with not over
50 to 55 per cent of hydrogen in It
In large works in Massachusetts the entire
forging was done by water gas at a saving of 30
per cent of labor and 50 per cent of coal. At
another works near Boston the whole of the
establishment was run with water gas. In this
case the water gas was passed into pipes to do
fine work of all kinds. The discussion was
continued by 8ir Frederick Abel, M. Pourcel,
Mr. Frederick Siemens.
Discrepancies in figures, with 'reference to
cost of water gas production, were so marked a
feature of the discussion that no decided ad
vantage can be said to rest with either the ad
vocates of solid fuel or water gas at the insti

The fourth annual report of Carroll D.
Wright United States Commissioner of Labor,
'is an addition to existing Information and sta
tistics on the subject of labor in America. The
worK deals entirely with" the question of work
ing women In large cities. Original investiga
tions were made in Brooklyn, Buffalo, Chicago,
Cincinnati, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Louis
ville, Newark, New Orleans, New York, Phila
delphia, Richmond, St Louis and San Fran
cisco. Relative to the condition of the work
ing women in New York City, the report says:
"Two features in the condition of New York
City so largely affect the working women there
as to dwarf all other considerations the tene
ment house and the influx and Concentration
of foreign immigration. The existence of
separate homes is a rarity, even among the
well-to-do industrial classes. The crowded con
dition of the poor and struggling is beyond be
lief, unless actually witnessed. This brings
with it disease, death, immorality, etc Tall
rear tenements block up the small air spaces
that ere insufficient even for the front and
often a third bouse stands behind the second.
Sewerage is lacking or defective, and stenches
of all kinds prevail In the poorer quarters.
The new tenements are built with more atten
tion to air, light and cleanliness, and there ia a
growing movement toward securing better
homes for the working population. Ground
being so dear, rents are enormous. The neces
saries of life are high, and many of the poor
live on the refuse of the markets.
'On the other hand, the comforts of life are
found in tho best tenements. Carpets and
clean beds, lace curtains, upholstered furni
ture, pictures, pianos and organs are not in
frequent Among the foreign settlers illiteracy
is very great Ambition to learn .English, how
ever, fills the night schools with eager pupils.
"Working girls born In Now York are alert
and worldly wise rather than well educated,
even according to the standard of public
schools. The pressure of necessity drives them
early into the workshop. The moral condition
of the working women is influenced for evil by
the tenement house home in a way too vast for
discussion here. One noteworthy cause for
immorality is the taking of men as lodgers for
the sako of extra income; another is the long
distances girls are compelled to traverse after
dark, especially on leaving stores which remain
open till 10 or 11 o'clock on Saturday night; an
other is the crowding of friendless young
women to the metropolis, where they live with
out home restraint, suffering every conceivable
discomfort, subject to long periods of idleness,
which they often enter upon with an empty
"Even among the lowest grades, however,
there is a ready response to gentle treatment
and an Innate politeness that can spring only
from a kind heart The truest heroism of life
and conduct was found beneath rags and dirt
"In dress and bearing the better class of
working girls compare' favorably with women
of leisure and refinement The almost in
variable church contributions, especially
amontr the foreign population. Indicate a
steady church attendance. As respects Tentl-1
lation. a properly regulated workshop a the
exception. The average room is either stuff?
and close, or hot and close, and even where
windows abound they are seldom opened.
Toilet facilities are generally scant and in
adequate, and 100 workers are dependent some
times on a single closet or sink; and that too
often out of order. Considering the cost of
living, wages are little, if any, higher in Hew
York than in other cities, though the number
of well-paid positions being greater, chances of
promotion are better."

Bnslnesi In Locnl Stocks Shows a Decided
Improvement Electric Stronger.
Sales at the Stoc Exchange yesterday were
876 shares, the largest of any day for several
months. Whether it was the opening of a re
vival or only a spurt remains to be seen; the
probability is, however, that Investors who
have been holding out for cheap stuff have
about concluded that they can't get It at their
figures, and are meeting the market rather
than be left in the lurch. It is pretty safe to
say that changes from now on will be toward a
The active stocks yesterday, were La Noria,
Electric, Pittsburg and Western common and
Central Traction, although there was more or
less demand for all the so-called favorites.
Electric opened at 49H, and sold up to 49& in
the afternoon with light offerings, and closing
strong. Timid holders are gathering courage.
It would bo difficult to bring largo blocks of it
under 50 or 5L The reaction is complete. La
Noria, which was active at 2 or over before the
late expose, sold at , the lowest in its history,
and the demand at that figure was soon satis
fled. Central Traction was fractionally stronger,
but the others were weak. Philadelphia Gas
was firm and dull, 35 being bid and Zb asked.
The other gassers showed no particular
change, except Wheeling, which lost ground.

Local Bank Doing as Well as Usual at This
There was no particular change in the local
money market yesterday. Business was re
ported fair to good all round. Checking was
heavy. The demand for accommodations was
said to be on the increase.
A cashier said: "While we have so far failed
to find employment for all onr money, we are
and have been doing very well for several
weeks. We commenced the season with a very
large surplus, and it wonld require an extraor
dinary expansion of business to call it nil into
requisition. Then, again, manufacturers and
merchants are getting nearly all they need
from their customers. Our loans are about as
large as usual at this season and rates are a lit
tle better. Nothing is suffering for want of
funds. The situation proves completely that a
large surplus and active business are perfectly

Operator for a Rise Do Nothing;, Leaving
Professionals and Bears to Make
Prices Nearly Evcrytblne
Closea at a Decline.
Netv York, October 11. The stock market
continued to show a moderate volume of busi
ness to-day, but was comprised in about a half
dozen stocks which furnished about three
fourths of the business and aU the important
fluctuations. The remainder of the list were
quiet and feverish within narrow limits as
usual of late. The operators tor a rise were
doing nothing apparently, and tho bears and
professionals had the making of quotations all
to themselves, and their efforts were directed
to the few leading stocks in which marked de
clines were established, but npon the with
drawal of the pressure a material rally quickly
ensued. The pressure was directed principally
against Missouri Pacific, New England and
Sugar Refineries, while Atchison was bought
freely under cover of the depression in the
To further the decline in Missouri Pacific,
which seemed to bear the brunt of the attack,
a story was put out that the company intended
to issue about 8,000,000 of bonds for extensions
and other improvements. Mr. Gould was ab
sent from the city, which fact may have been
taken into consideration when the story was
put forth, and no denial of the rumor was had
until late in the day, when the mischief bad
been done. New England was attacked with a
renewal ol the old story of a further issue of
Preferred stock, and metwith an official denial,
ugar was hurt by the disposition to anticipate
an unfavorable decision in the case of the
North river refinery, and a rumor that it had
been made broke the stock 3 per cent while a
denial brought the price up about the level of
the opening price.
A drive was made at St. Paul with only frac
tional effect and marked weakness was de
veloped in Oregon Transcontinental on rumors
that a suit would be brought by the stock
holders against Mr. ViUard to compel an ac
counting. Other stocks were specially weak,
and Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and St
Louis and Louisville and Nashville were con
spicuous at times. Considerable pressure was1
brought against Cotton Oil lu the early dealing,
but the resistance was too strong and a rapid
rally followed, though the whole of the lm-
rovement was not retained at'the close. Rock
iland was notably strong and recovered hand
somely from the depression ot yesterday, again
crossing par, though it also was unable to hold
Sugar opened at 84 against S4 last evening
and declined to 81, but rallied to 81 and closed
at 82. Missouri Pacific opened down at
71 and was forced off to 68 recovered to
70, but closed at 69. New England was
lower at the opening at 46, dropped to 43-, and
rallied to 45, closing at 45. Atchison was
strong from tbe outset and rose from 26 to
28 and closed at 28. The list is almost
invariably lower to-night the only marked ex
ception being Atchison, with an advance ot 1
per cent while Sugar is off 2. Missouri

There are no new features to trade. Friday's
markets were generally quiet and slow in prod
uce lines. Eggs are very firm and can hardly
fail to go higher soon. Daily products are ac
tive at the old rates. Potatoes have evidently
touched bottom and are steadier. Sweet pota
toes are quiet. Grapes are in lull supply, but
prices are well maintained. The tropical fruit
trade has developed no new features. Markets
are active and prices firm. Poultry is in good
demand, with a tendency to higher prices.
Though frosts within a day or two have put a
quietus on any new tomatoes, prices, as yet,
have failed to advance. Tbe quality, however,
of those on market has depreciated considera

were plucked green from tbe vines are ripening
