A NAMELESS GRAVE.
"A soldier of the Union mustered out,"
Is the inscription on sn unknown crave
At Newport "Sew, beside the salt tea wave,
tameless and dateless; sentinel or scoot
Shot down in skirmish, or disastrous rout
Of battle, when the loud artillery drave
The iron wedges tbroucjb. the ranks of brave
And doomed battalions storming the redoubt
Thou unknown hero sleeping by the sea
In thr forgotten grave! with secret shame
I feel my pulses beat, my forehead born,
When I remember thon hast giTen for me
All that thou hadst, thy life, thy very name,
Ana I can give thee nothing in return.
Aeraxgemests have been completed
for the reunion of the Seventy-eighth Penn
sylvania Volunteer Infantry, which takes
place next "Wednesday, the 16th inst. at
Punxsutawney, Pa. This regiment was
commanded dnring the war by the late
Colonel "William Sirwell, and earned a record
in the army of the Cumberland creditable
alike to the gallant Colonel and his com
mand. Special arrangements have been
made with the Allegheny Valley Bailroad
for the convenience of the members, with a
rate of one fare for the round trip. Secretary
Bengough desires it stated that all who can
possibly do so, are requested to be at the
Allegheny Valley depot at 8 o'clock on
Tuesday morning, the 15th inst., and those
residing In Butler, Mercer and Armstrong
counties to make connections with the same
train. The citizens of Punxsutawney have
made arrangements to give "the boys" a gener
ous welcome, and a good time may be expected
by all who will be able to participate In the
seventh reunion of the regiment.
Fnn In Pott 162.
Post 162 indulged in the pleasures of a story
telling contest at its meeting on Saturday even
ing. October 5. The prizes were a cake to the
comrade telling the best story and a huge sun
flower to the one spinning the poorest J arn.
That the contest might be conducted with
truth and justice to all. Commander Burchfleld
appointed as judges Comrades Brown and Ger
wic,of Post 128. and J. L. Shook, of Post SS.
All stories were to be true, personal experi
ences of the speaker.
Comrade James Ehlpman, of "Woods' Run,
was awarded the cake. He appalled his hear
ers by telling of bow he went fl-hing on Lake
Michigan while on a visit to Chicago about
nine years ago, and of hovr he lost his Grand
Army badge while creating haroc among the
finny tribe. He continued: "While on my re
cent visit to Milwaukee I took a run down to
Chicago and wnilo there went fishing. I caught
a fish weighing 200 pounds. When I opened
him heboid! my long lost badge was disclosed
to my astonished eyes."
The truth or the story was proved
to the judges' satisfaction by Com
rade Holyland declaring that he saw
the narrator fibbing on the lake
and by Comrade Shipman displaying the iden
tical badge of the story. There were a large
number of contestants with all kinds of stories;
war stories, buffalo stories, etc., and although
some of them were whoppers, none equaled
the wonderful story of Comrade Shipman.
Comrade Sawyer, of the navy, secured the sun
flower. The visiting comrades were well
pleased by their hospitable treatment, and
tbink that If any comrade wants to spend a
pleasant Saturday evening; he will make no
mistake by nullintrthe latch strlnr- 'which fs

the evening of Institution, comprised large pots
of living tropical plants as well as many hand
some designs in cut flowers. Among the
presents made that evening to the Circle, which
starts under the most favorable auspices, was

Chapman, by Comrade John Wood; a handsome
altar Bible by the Chaplain, Miss McClcland; a
ballot box by Albert Burns, and a set of gavels
by Comrade Turner, of Post 8. Beautiful

Post 151'a Fair nt Hand.
The fair of Post 151 will be opened at Salis
bury Hall, Southside, on next Tuesday even
ing. It has every promise of a successful run.
It will be a little Exposition in itself, and some
enthusiastic workers say it will not be neces
sary for the Southside people to come over to
the big Exposition after the fair commences.
There will be a wealth of attractive features.
A phonograph will be one of them. A printing
press and ewmg machines, all operated by
steam will add interest. A musical and liter
ary entertainment will be given every evening.
There will be a hall entirely separate from the
main ball for dancing, bo, if any be opposed
to dantang. they will not be inconvenienced at
all by indulge in the delicious pleasure.
The best of order, of course, will be enforced
at all tames. The object is to liquidate the
debt on the post's building and for the benefit
of the charity fund. A pleasant evening is as
sured all who may attend.

CHICAGO, October 12. There was a fairly
good trade in the wheat market to-day, largely
in the way of evening up. More or less long
wheat came out. The opening was weak and
prices HX lower, selling off c more later,
then rallied Jc, but ruled easier, closing about
the same as yesterday for both December and
Corn ruled quiet and inactive, though there
were moments of temporary activity. Tbe
feeling was easier on the near futures, while
May ruled comparatively steady. Trading was
largely local and fluctuations limited tojc
Oats wero dull but steady and without special
features of importance. Prices only fluctuated
The provision trade closed the week in a
quiet manner. The October pork deal was
scarcely mentioned, and in the general market
there was n6 particular life at any time. Price
changes were unimportant.
The leading prices ranged as follows:

BUILDINGS AND BEAL ESTATE.
One Borough in the Swim and Two Others

THE WEEK IB STOCKS AND PETEOLECM
Building was active last week, regardless
of the weather. The number of permits
issued for new houses, mostly medium-sized
dwellings, was 65, involving an estimated
expenditure of 5115,320. The largest permit
was taken ont by Frazier & Vetter for six
frame two-story dwellings on Evaline street,
at a cost of $15,600. F. L. Campe was
authorized to erect a brick two-story house
on Marchand street. It will cost 510,700.
Vf. R. & E. G. Mooney propose to build
two brick two-story houses on "Westminster
street, for which they expect to pay $9,000.
Mrs. C. Morehead will put up a two-story
brick building on South Hiland avenue at
a cost of 5G.500, and Mrs, M. J. Hamilton
will embellish Fortieth street with a two-story
brick at an expense of $5,000.
The Clearing House report for the past week,
although not so good as that for the week be
fore, is one of the best of tbe year. To justify
such figures requires a vast amount of busi
ness. While the present is satisfactory, the
future promises even better. Unlike Alexander,
local capitalists are finding new worlds to con
quer. Tin plate will soon be included among
Pittsburg industries. The iron mills are run
ning night and day, but thi3 does not enable
them to keep up with their orders. Immediate
deliveries are impossible.
Real estate is attracting unusual attention.
The lull mentioned a few days ago has been
succeeded by great activity. Small properties
are changing owners rapidly, and the move,
ment in large ones is on the increase. A num
ber of important transactions hare taken place
within a short time, and others are well
along. To show that large properties are in re
quest. It may be mentioned that yesterday a
Fourth avenue agoncy received a commission
to seenre options on three entire blocks In the
lower part of the city. Another agent reported
that he was about closing np a 860,000 deal.
The most interesting feature of the stock
market during the week was a break in Elec
tric, following the announcement of Justice
Bradley's adverse decision, and its rapid recov
ery of almost all the lost ground. It was of
fered very sparingly and closed steady, al
though a trifle under the best figure of the
rally. Large amounts would bring par, or
thereabouts. La Noria closed a little better
than the lowest of the week on good buying,
principally outside the exchange. Fluctua
tions in tbe rest of the list were small and with
out significance, the only stocks showing any
improvement being Philadelphia Gas and Cen
Petroleum was dull and featureless all week
nntil yesterday, when there was a little spurt
in the market which carried it above the dollar
mark for a few minutes, but business was too
light to sustain the advance, and the price
dropped to SI 00, where it stood at the close.
The spirit of enterprise which some time ago
seized upon tbe citizens of the boroughs of
Chartiers and Mansfield seems to have oozed
out at their finger ends. Reference is made to
the project for consolidating the two boroughs,
doing away with one set of officers and making
a town largo enough for a city of the third
class. Following this, the streets were to be
graded and paved and other improvements
made to correspond to the new dignity.
A gentleman who lives in Mansfield said yes
terday that this magnificent scheme had gone
where the woodbine twineth, in the language
of the late James Fisk.
"What caused the fizzle f
"Oh," said he, "It is traceable to lack of en
terprise and jealousy. The people are afraid it
would cost them a little at the start, and they
won't look ahead to the great advantage con
solidation would be to them by tbe Increase of
population and enhancement of property. The
young element favor consolidation, but tho
fossils oppose it, and they are in the majority.
Bo dead-set are the latteragainstunprovements
of any kind that they are kicking against the
widening and paving of the principal street in
"Towns all'around us are being Improved and
brightened np, but I suppose we will be com'
pelled to support two sets of borough officers
and plow througlnthe mud for another genera
tion. This want of publio spirit is doing great
injury to real estate."
Wilkinsburg, the handsome little borough
out tbe Pennsylvania Railroad, is one of the
liveliest places in the county. It is growing at
a rate which will make it an Important town in
a very few years. Whether it will maintain its
autonomy or be absorbed by the city is an open
question, but the drift at present is in favor of
Enterprise of various kinds is springing up.
Tbe latest project is tbe organization of a com
pany to establish a plant to supply the borough
and adjoining towns with electric light. The
waterworks are in operation, water having
been turned on Friaay evening. The inquiry
for real estate is unprecedented in the history
of the town, and sales are large. A local agent
reports ten sales in as many days; The same
agent reports sales of lots in the Wilkins' estate
plans amounting to 40,000 within a few months.
Other agents are doing almost as well. Twenty
five houses are under contract in one locality,
to be finished as soon as possible.
The citizens are too modest to boast, but they
"point with pride" to what they are doing, and
invite any other place of equal population to
show a better record.
In regard to local realty and the outlook
therefor, tbe Heal Sitate Record and Builders'
Guild has this to say: "There have been many
transactions conducted so quietly that few sur
mised that anything worth noting was on the
carpet. The transfers tell the story. They
demonstrate that instead of a decline in
values property is holding its own everywhere.
We cannot find in any locality any signs of
weakness. We observe Boms districts where
the movement is very slow, but prices are firm.
On the other hand, in many places, there Is a
positive advance a stiffening all around.
Everything is favorable for the continuance of
the conditions which have improved the real
estate market within the past year.
"The acreage removed from the market by
people who are building homes and dwellings
for renting purposes is so great that the prices
of unimproved land Instead of diminishing are
Increased in the majority of instances. The
effect of unexampled building operations upon
the unimproved realty is not easily estimated.
It is more difficult than to estimate the amount
of unimproved realty that has been placed
upon tbe market within a year. One thing is
evident. All the nnimproved realty along the
lines of the rapid transit roads, especially the
more available bnllding sites, has been ab
sorbed, and much interest is manifested in ad
joining property. It seems to us that the Bole
question a man has to answer and each must
answer it for himself and in his own way is,
whether the amount of unimproved realty that
may be off ered within a year will operate in a
way to lessen prices. We do not think it will."

Local Securities About Hold Their Oira In
1 Dusiness and Prices.
Business at the Stock Exchange was satisfac
tory for Saturday, when little is expected
besides figures. There was a good demand for
bank and insurance stocks, and they held their
own and a little more in the bidding, but there
were no transactions. They are good invest

The inside feeling on Electric was slightly
weaker, If anything, probably as a natural reac
tion from tbe sharp recovery from tbe denres
sion Immediately following tbe announcement
of Justice Bradley's decision. It could have
been bought, probably, in small lots at a frac
tion above 49, against sales at 48 on Friday.
Large blocks would have brought more. The
stock is being handled so carefully that there is
very little danger of a reaction.
BridgewaterGas brought 25. Within a year
or 10 it has sold as high as 120. The depression
is attributed mainly to the failure to supply
Yonngstown with gas after laying a main that
cost about $500,000. In the present condition of
tbe company dividends are extremely problem
atical. The other gas stocks were dull and barely
steady, tho most of them being neglected
Central Traction was np a trifle, but the other
traction stocks were scarcely mentioned. Last,
but not least. La Noria afforded some evidence
of steady increased strength, selling up to and
closing at that figure. There has been good buy

about 2,000 shares having been picked up within
a day or two. Bids, oilers and sales were:

THE WEEK'S BANKING.
Exchnnues Fall Off Two Millions, Bat They
The exchanges last week were over 82,000,000
smaller than for the week before. This was
due to bad weather for several days and a halt
in checking. The quarterly settlements, too,
have been pretty well squared np, which is an
other reason for the decline. Still, the record
is an excellent one one of the best of the year
and is away ahead of that of the same time

week was 2,330,650 9L These figures repre

Bankers reported 4 moderate demand for
money, of which there was no scarcity, and
rates steady at 67 as the extremes, while dis
counting and depositing were about up to tbe
average of the week. There were no special
influences at work to affect the local money
market either way, and it is settled that it will
rule easy the rest of the year. Pittsburg is re

New York is also in an easier position, the tide

J. M. Oakley fc Co.'s Wall street correspond
ent wired yesterday evening: The bank state
ment was better than had been figured out in
advance, and it showed 960,000 increase in re
serves, which leaves the associated banks of
New York $1,000,000 under the 25 per cent limit
As there was a reduction of $5,200,000 in de
posits the banks have $340,000 less actual money
than a week ago. There is no present fear of
any excessive monetary stringency, but rates
promise to be firm for several months to come.
The weekly statement of the New York
banks, issued yesterday, shows the following
changes: Reserve, increase, $9flO,02S; loans,
decrease, $4,070,300; specie, increase, $1,835,800:
legal tenders, decrease. $2,152,200; deposits, de
crease. $5,107,700; circulation, decrease, $13,200.
Tbe banks now hold $708,025 less than the 25
per cent rule calls for.
Money on call at New York yesterday was
easy, with no loans, closed offered at 4 per cent.

OIL H0TES UP.
It Goes Above a Dollar and Closes at That
The opening of the oil market yesterday was
rather tame, but Ha higher than the close of
Friday. About 11 o'clock the feeling became
bullish. A broker summoned enough courage
to buy 4,000 barrels, and in about a minute the
price advanced one-half a cent. Firmness con
tinued from that time on until near tbe close,
when a break occurred, and final fignres showed
a concession of one-eighth from the highest
point of the day.
Just before the close the best quotation of
the day was made, $1 00H being freely bid. bnt
there was very little of the stuff to be had, and
business failed to respond to the advence. The
boom, therefore, was of short duration. The
little flurry was a natural result from the leth
argy of tbe past few months, dealers being
anxious to get out ot the rut somehow, and the'
Sump was duo to lack of support, showing
sery clearly that there is not sufficient business
jo sustain even a moderate advance. -
The market opened at 86Jc; highest $1 00J
lowest 99Jfc; closing SlThe feeling at the
finish was steady, with tbe bulls hopeful of a
good market this week.
Washington well news was to this effect:
McCleary t Co.'s, on the Gregg, is showing up
well; it flows every two hours, and at 10 bits in
the sand made al5-barrel flow. The Baker
Sharp completed; will make a 40-barrel
pamper. College Park No. 8 is 18 feet In the
sand and will be a small pumper. Tbe Wilson
well, which, on account of its location, being
south of all developments, is the most im
portant well in tbe field, is 13 bits in tbe sand
and has some oil in the hole. The Hooper
Charton, Barns' Kuntz No. & Harty's Knntz
No. 1, Carrie Oil Company's Trinity lot, and
Hallam Bros.', on the Trinity, all look like
A Howl From Gotham.
JohnM.Oaklev& Cc's New York special
reads: It is singular how completely petroleum
has faded from the publio mind. When one
recalls the enormous transaction of only a few
years ago and compares that situation with tbe
present stagnation of the market, it shows how
fickle public favor is. Old timers in petroleum
stand perfectly aghast at tbe failure of the
publio to bny Pennsylvania oil in view of its
constantly diminishing volume, and they argue
with apparently good logic that it will not be
many months until, with tbe present rate of
consumption and nrodnction, there will not be
a visible supply. Tbe fact, however, is appar
ent that the great refining interest is opposed
to any speculative movement; and no one who
has the courage or the capital to combat their
wishes. Furthermore, the existence of a stock
of oil In Ohio equal to that on hand In Penn
sylvania and selling at a very much lower
price, even though it be inferior, is a standing
menace to a bull movement in Pennsylvania
oil. We cannot see any hope for activity until
dealings are inaugurated: in tbe Ohio product,
which, it done, we believe-would revive specu
lation. Unless some change soon takes place
in the petroleum market we cannot see how
Oil City and Bradford can maintain their ex
changes. Petroleum business bas been dried
np. To-day there were some signs of anima
tion, the market rising to 81.

Removed From Railroad Shares, With a
General Rally as Ike Result Lon
don a Good Barer of
New York, October 12. For the first time
m weeks the stock market was comparatively
free from bear pressure to-day, and, left to Its
natural bent, the market Improved in all Its
departments. The closing prices in London
were higher than our Agates of last evening,
and while London seemed to be doing little in
this market, all the London favorites were
strong. Careful observers thonght that they
detected buying of Atchison, Cotton Oil and
New England by the bear party, which bas
been so active in tbe market for the past two
weeks, though New England was if anything
rather neglected. t
Some buying of Manhattan sent that stock
up rapidly, and with the Chesapeake and Ohio
stocks it was the feature of the market toward
the close, the latter being aided by a trip of the
Vanderbilts oyer the line. The advances in
first prices over last evening's figures were from
J-Jto percent, and farther fractional gains
were scored alV over the list in the early deal
ings, though the only real activity was In Atch
ison, which was taken largely from 2S to 29.
Sugar was especially weak at first, and de
clined to 82 from 83, and recovering its loss
again declined to 82. A portion of this was re
covered toward the close, however. There was
considerable selling of Missouri Pacific after 11
o'clock, when there was some demonstration
made against prices by the traders, on the ex
pectation of a farther decrease in the reserves
01 tne Danxs; out we statement, wnen issuea,
showed an increase In that respect; and the
buying assumed larger proportions than
at any previous time of the day.
Manhattan and Manitoba were specially strong
at this time and everything advanced with
them, the market finally closing active and
strong at the best Drices of the session. The
list is almost invariably higher this evening
and while most of tbe changes are for Insignifi
cant tractions juannattan is np um Atcmson,
Big Four, Louisville and Nashville and Union
Pacific each 1 per cent.
Railroad bonds were more animated and
showed a firmer tone than usual of late, though
the changes during the session were in but few
cases for more than slight fractions.
The exports of specie from tbe port of
New York last week amounted to $721,017, of
which $58,100 was in gold and $662,917 silver. Of
the total exports, $11,000 In gold and $652,663 sil
ver went to Europe and $47,100 in gold and $10,
255 silver to South America. The imports of
specie for the week amounted to $27,964, of
which $9,351 was in gold ana $18,613 silver.
