Mosdat. October 14. 1SS9. f
In its general features the lire stock mar
ket at these yards did not vary materially
from last Monday. The run was lighter,
but demand was no better. Sheep were the
weak ieature of the markets. Cattle and
hogs held op fairly to last week's prices.
The supply of cattle was light and mar
kets were fairly steady for all erodes at the
following range of prices: Prime heavy
Chicago bought beeves, weighing 1,500 to
1,600 pounds, S5 25 to 55 40, with a few
sales of very choice as high as S5 50; me

to ?5 10; do. 1,200 to 1,30.0 pounds, 54 75 to
$4 85; prime light weights, 900 to 1,100

steers, $3 75 to 54 05. Fresh cows were in ample
supply and sold at a range of 525 to $50 per
head. Speculators and dairy agents were, as
usual, the only buyers, and were at latest ac
counts doing their best c

Offerings were light, but markets were slow
at a shade lot,er prices than last week, except
ing for fancy stock. Hogs appear to be shov
ing sheep to the rear. Best heavy Western
wethers sold at a range of 54 75 to 54 S5 and
were far from lively at these figures. Medium
weights brought S4 35 to 51 60: l.ght n eights,
53 S5 to 54 10; mixed ewes and wethers S3 50 to
54 00. Pennsjlvanias sold at a range of 53 50 to

The n n of cattle at East Liberty was the
lightest for a number of weeks, and not more
than one-half that of last week and the week
before. This sharp decline in receipts had a
stimulating effect on trade, and prices ad
vanced fully 10c all along the line. For two
weeks past supplies of cattle for local trade
have been far in excess of demand. This week
they are much below demand.
Sheep and hugs at East Liberty are faitly
steady at last week's prices.

CniOAGO The wheat market was quiet to
day and the feeling stead; and firm. Nothing
specially developed to affect the course of the
market, which was a local one so far as trading
went. A prominent local trader, who the past
few days did most of the buying and prevented
a further decline, was a desperate seller for
December around S26S2c to-day.
There was apparently no disposition to sell
freely, that is, to go short to any extent, and
what was done on the selling side was mainly
for quick turns. Neither was there any great
buying being done, but one thing noticeable
was that the offerings were not large. The
opening was HxAo better than Saturday's
closing, and quickly advanced a trifle more,
then eased off e, again became strong and
rallied to outside prices, or Kc above inside
figures, and ruled firm, closing about He
bigher than Saturday. Cable advices were
again of a favorable tenor. It is claimed that
the strength in the Liverpool market is due to
some manipulation by a large trader there in
A very good speculative business was trans
acted in corn, and the' feeling prevailing was
quite firm early, but later outside prices were
nut fully sustained. Avery good demand ex
isted for the near futures, and, as offerings
were quite light, an advance followed. There
was some talk early of a decrease in the visible
supply, which had a strengthening effect on
values, as also the purchasing of year and the
near futures by a prominent local speculator.
Offerings of Mav were onite heavv at times.
The market opened a shade above Sat urdaj's
closing prices and advanced $i eased off
iiXc, ruled steady and closed ybic better
In oats a slow and steady market was noted.
Few outside orders were received, and local
traders onlygave the market passing attention,
and an increase of 901,000 bushels was reported
reported in the visible supply. Offerings for
future delivery were light, and most of the
sales were at the same as Saturday's closing
The mess pork market attracted a little more
attention and trading was a trifle more active.
October met with a little more favor, and there
was an increased business reported in Novem
ber and January deliveries. Prices ruled 25
50c higher for October and 5&7ie higher for
the deferred deliveries, but outside figures
were not maintained.
In lard a moderate trade was reported, and
the feeling was steadier.
In short ribs there was only a fair trade re
ported, and there was no particular change to
note in prices.

Philadelphia has a reputation for cheap
rents, and justly, too, so far as dwelline
houses are concerned, but there her claim to
distinction iu this particular ends. Busi
ness house and office rents are 10 to 25 per
cent higher than in Pittsburg. This infor
mation was obtained from Samuel "W.
Black yesterday, who was in Philadelphia
the latter part of last week. He adde'd:
f'The water tax is considerably higher there
than in Pittsburg. For instance, a ten
itoomed house, with bath, closets, etc, costs
515 a year. Here the same bouse would
cost $30- at least Another difference be
tween Philadelphia and Pittsburg is that
people there do not object to buying bouses
that are in a row. Here the objection is so
strong as frequently to prevent sales, the
reason being their antipathy to parti-walls.
Although they come cheaper, the average
Pittsburg house owner or buyer wants the
wall all to himself, and would rather pay
5200 to 5500 more for It than be dependent in
any waT upon bis neighbor."
The story of Increased railroad earnings is a
thrice told tale, and more than that. It is only
a repetition of the extraordinary favorable re
turns that have been presented since mid
summer. Returns are published for the month
of September for 123 companies, which control
71,104 miles of track, as compared with a mile
age of 7I,71o miles one year ago. The aggre
gate of September earnings of the companies
reporting is 532,568,456, an increase of 11.6 per
cent over September, 1838. For August 134
companies reported a gain in gross earnings
over the record for August, 1888, amounting to
10.8 per cent. In July last, as compared with
July, 1880, the increase on gross earnings was
7.8 per cent, and in June it was not quite 5 per
cent Only 36 roads show a loss, and these are
nearly all small lines and affected by special
conditions. The most noteworthy are the At
lantic and Pacific, which is nearly 20 percent
behind hand, and the Hocking Valley propor

At the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn "Foun
der's Day" was observed last week with ap
propriate exercise', and an address by Charles
Pratt was naturally the principal feature.
The aim of the institute, Mr. Pratt said, was to
give facilities for the trial of the best type of
combined academic instruction and mannal
training for boys and girls from 14 years of age
to 17 or 18. The idea was not to teach them
any trade, but to edncate them to work pa
tiently and systematically in the use of hand,
eye and brain. Snch as finished this course,
Mr. Pratt thought, would be able to decide
whatthey were best fitted for in life's work.
Burire the past jear, Mr. Pratt said, over 30
persons bad gone out of the institute who were
now earning an average of 5500 a year, or
more than the interest on 5500,000 in Govern
The International and Mortgage Bank of
Mexico, with a capital stock of $5,000,000, is the
latest financial venture on a large scale to fol
low the salt trust, and one-half the amonnt of
the stock is to be offered to the public at SS0 a
share. The promoters of this enterprise, says
the Wall" Street Investigator, are obviously
treading an untried field, and any road in Mex
ico may, like Jordan, prove a hard road to
travel. We wish them joy, and would like to
boil the peas in their boots and save them from
encounters with Mexican banditti by the way;
but they will have to fight their own battles and
pay for their ransom with a cheerful spirit as
often as required. Those who are anxious to
go into the banking business in Mexico have
now a glorious opportunity. Let them load up
to the muzzle with the stock. Then, armed to
the teeth, each with a cocked hat and a pair of
spurs, let them organize for the fray and march
into Mexico to defend their all and the bank's
deposits from the avaricious nanas of the Mexi
can bandits and possible revolutionists.
One of the remarkable features about archi
tecture in New York at present is the rapidity
with which buildings are completed, particu
larly the great office buildings in Wall street
and elsewhere down town. Formerly the con
struction of snch buildings was a matter of
years; now they are finished and occupied in a
few months after the foundations are laid.

"down brakes," and adds: "While every iron
and steel manufacturer desires prices to be
maintained at a point which will yield him a
fair profit on his operations, it may safely be
assumed that there are very few who wish to
see extravagant rates prevail. This satisfac
tory stage of affairs has been reached and
passed. Every point now scored in the up
ward movement is a warmer invitation to idle
blast furnaces or rolling mills to resume activ

prises to be undertaken where none now exist,
inevitably the supply will overtake the de
mand, then greatly exceed it, and prices will
fall below the point of profit at even well lo

A New York letter says: "Ibere are rumors
in regard to a comprehensive and far-reaching
movement for the control of the market for
barbed wire, but the negotiations have been
carried on with nnusual secrecy, and manu
facturers are very reserved in regard to the
matter, so that there is but little definitely
known to the trade en the subject. The nego
tiations are referred to in the daily press as
looking to the formation of a barbed wire
trust, but we are requested to state by the
parties actively identified with the enterprise
that the proposed arrangement is not of the
nature of a trust. It is thought by some who
are familiar win the matter that it will be
brought before long to a successful issue and
that the result will be a material strengthening
of the market in the lines brought under con

The oil market yesterday presented a scene
ot stagnation that was discouraging to even
professionals, and it must have been a
veritable wet blanket to such of the lambs as
were in the loDby. It opened at 100, ad
vanced to 100, declined to 99, rallied and
closed at 100. The rallies were caused by the
shorts covering a little, and the slumps by the
anxiety of the longs to earn an honest penny

Railroad Shares Feverish and Unsettled,
Thongh Final Prices Show Fraction
nl Gains Over Saturday Bonds
More Active, bnt Heavy.
New Yobk, October 11 The stock market
was exceptionally feverish, unsettled and, in
portion weak to-day, though the general run
of railroad stocks were well supported and a
few displayed undoubted strength. The indus
trial stocks were the weak spot in the market,
and they served to check the advancing ten
dency which was shown in the regular list
whenever tho pressure was lifted for a time.
The favorable bank statement of Saturday,
with the higher figures fromLondon this morn
ing, and the foreign buying made the opening
of the markat strong and moderately active,
first prices showing advances over Saturday's
closing figures of from to per cent
Atchison early became the strong point in
the market, and while the buying was chiefly
on the expectation that the plan of reorganiza
tion to be given out to-morrow wonld bo one of
positive value, and acceptable to the security
holders of the company, the August statement
showing an increase of over 5265,000 in net
earnings was undoubtedly of great influence in
making the advance. A few other stocks
showed positive strength, among which Jersey
Central and Cleveland. Columbus, Cincinnati
and St Louis were most prominent, the last
named being bought by insiders with consider
able talk of a dividend.
The trusts resumed their old time promi
nence in the market, and were raided vigorous
ly throughout the entire day, and while most
of the buying had the appearanco of coming
from insiders, there did not seem to be any
real support in the market. There was still no
decision in the North River Refinery case,
thongh it was held up as a bugbear to the hold
ers and would-be buyers of Sugar. The stock
was knocked off from 83 last Saturday to 78Jf,
and rallied slightly, but another raid sent the
price down to 76H,and It closed weak at 76
Cotton Oil had an appearance of strength at
the opening, but tho stock was raided with
Sugar, and while there appeared to be scaled
buying orders they were not of sufficient mag
nitude to stop the decline, and it dropped from
43 to 38J, recovering to 4C.
The Coal stocks, with the exception of Jersey
Central, were rather weak, and Lackawanna
was subjected to considerable pressure, as was
also Missouri Pacific, but the impression made
upon them was slight. Manitoba and Canada
Pacific, upon a story of an alliance between
them, were qnitn strong, though very dull,
while the Chesapeake ana Ohios were strong in
a moderate volume of business for those shares.
The market continued feverish and unsettled
the entire day, and finally closed rather heavy,
though the final prices are fractionally higher
than those of Saturday in all hut a few In

Dr. Benjamin Lee, Secretary of the State

morning, accompanied by Drs. McClellan

bers of the State Board, Health Officer
Bradley, of Allegheny, and Messrs. Ebbert,
Einstein and Curry, of the Allegheny Health
Committee of Councils.
Starting from the head of the run the
party inspected it on foot, and at every step
were confronted with evidences of singular
negligence in the disposal of garbage, offal
and general rubbish. Dr. Lee' was amazed
at the condition of affairs, and said that it
was plain to be seen that the butchers who
have so streriuously denied any responsi

the run were plainly culpable. He ex
pressed strong condemnation of the guilty

A raw, rainy Monday morning is not calcu

scarce and markets were slow. The week is
too yo nng to d e velop any new features. Dairy
products are steady at old rates. Choice eggs
are firm enough to go higher. Large quantities
of potatoes are coming to market from the
Northwest and the drift of prices is toward a
lower level. Our shortage a couple of weeks
ago has been sufficiently advertised to bring an
over-snpply to- this marker. Apples, too, are
overdone and the movement is slow. Cool
weather and the wane of other fruits has stim
ulated the tropical fruit trade in the past few
days. New layer figs from Italy and Spain and
new dates have put in their appearance within
a few days.
