IflW'Ti 1 -' "50 ft? ) LOCAL LITE STOGK. v. Leading Features of Markets at the East Liberty Yards. UKUSUALLY LIGHT RUN OF CATTLE. Jtjedium Stock Stronger, Low Grades Steady, Primes Lower. SHEEP HIGHER AND HOGS STEADY Office of Pittsburg DisrATCiT. Wedxesdav. October 16. issa. J The receipts of cattle for local trade were lighter this week than for several months past Last week and the week before the run was about 200 loads. This week there were not above 100 loads received. Hot withstanding the light rnn, markets were weaker and a shade lower for primes. There were no buyers of export cattle on hand, and, as a consequence, prime stock was Blow and could only be sold at concessions on last week's prices. From the vicinity of TJpper Sandusky, O., there came ten loads of choice cattle, weighing 1,400 to 1,500 pounds, which would have brought 5 to 10c better prices last week than they were able to command this week. The nichcst Prico realized was $4 55, and1 cattle not as good brought, 1 CO a week ago. Several heads of prinre cattle were shipped East. The absence of buyers for export purposes explains the slowness of markets for prime cattle. Hedlnm weights of nice quality suitable for butchering purposes and weighing from 1,100 to 1.300 Its. were stronger than ther-were a week ago. Low grades, having been in an ex cessive supply for a number of weeks past, had already touched hard pan, and for this grade prices were fairly steady this week owing to light receipts. Cattle buyers had stocked up well on the heavy run of the last few weeks, and were therefore prepared for the short sup ply this week. Holders were disposed to be firm in their views because of light receipts, but their success in bringing buyers over to their views was not large. In general the market wa unfavorable for all heavv-weight cattle, and steady for low grades, w"ith a slight advance In nice, tidy butcher stock. Sheep nnd Lambs. The supply varied very little from last week, and quality shows little improvement. For the few choice grades that appeared markets were 10 to 20c per cwt better than last week. Low grades, which predominate at this season of the year, failed to bring any better prices than a week ago. Tender, juicy mntton Is not easy to be had at this time, as the animals that could furnish this quality are reserved for the wool. Besides, the consumption of pork is steadily growing at the expense of mntton, and the lat ter is withheld by farmers on this account. Ho:a in Good Demand. Demand has been up to supply all the week and markets have been firm for corn fed stock, Receipts have been about the same as last week. The range of prices for Philadelphia and Yorkers is 4.50 to H.75. The demand is strongest for the former grade. The outside prices at Chicago to-day was 1.50. Lard has been firmer for the past few days and, as a result, the demand for heavy hogs has improved. Foracnmberof months past the light hog has been most in demand in this market, and brought the best prices. Now the tide has turned towards heavy weights. OlcCall & Co.' Weekly Review.

The Boy Who Wns Dropped 40 Feet From n Bridge Not Badly Hurt. John Deeley, the man who dropped his child over the Thirty-third street bridge on Tuesday evening, had a hearing before Magistrate Brush at the Seventeenth ward station house yesterday. He was discharged tipon his own recognizances. Deeley ad- , milled that he held his boy over the bridge. "3Je said he did it merely to frighten him. He also said that he was a little the worse for drink at the time, and while holding him over the railings his son slipped out of his hands, and he dropped 40 leet below. Deeley was deeply grieved at his act, and- he wept bitterly during the hearing. Dr. Clark sent a certificate to Magistrate Brush stating that the child is not badly hurt, and he will recover in a few days. A Denial From Kenrns. John Kearns, of Oliver Bros.& Phillips mill, writes to The Dispatch denying the statements made by the Coroner's jury in the case of the death of his son. He says the iron which fell on his boy was not on the platform, but stood against a partition.

Very Little 'Spirit in tbo Wheat Pit Ocean Freights nnd Dry, Weather Aro tbo BiOl and the Bear Cards. Chicago There was but little animation on the wheat market to-day. Trading was of a rather restricted character, and the onlyno ticcablefeature was the selling of December by a prominent trader at S2c and the buying by the same party at 62c. There was some sell ing crcaitcd to New York, but trading was con fined principally to floor traders. The opening was at about yesterday's closing,andsteadily ad vanced K5$c, then cased off Js'ffiHc, but about three-quarters xf an hour belore the close be gan to show strength and advanced c, and closed firm and about c higher than yes terday. The influences brought to bear on the market were variable. Ocean freights were again quoted strong and tending higher, acting as a barrier to the export movement, and no new business was reported. Tho strength was at tributed to very dry weather in Missouri. A Very fair trade was transacted in corn, the butk of the business occurring early in the ses tion, after which the pit became less activa. The feeling prevailing as easier. The market opened at a shade under yesterday's closing prices, was easy, and sold off Jic, advanced J-sC, ruled quiet and closed a shade lower than yesterday. Oats were quiet and a shade easier. There was an absence of buying orders, but liberal offers to sell May by a prominent operator. A moderate business transpired in May, but in other deliveries transactions were light. Trading in mess pork was more active, but the feeling was somewhat unsettled, the prices ruling irregular. Early the feeling was stronger, and prices advanced WQ12c Later the market was easier, and prices settled back 57ic but rallied 10S12c and closed steady. In lard prices were a little more favorable to sellers, though outside figures were not fully supplied. Trading was only moderativeiy act- wre. A little more activity was manifested andthe feeling was firmer in short ribs. Prices ruled a trifle higher, and outside figures were fully sus tained. fcTIio leading futures ranged as follows: WnpAT-Ka 2. December. S2SIK6S1K 6S2c: year. S0S05SOSOic; May, S5 So?fi6M?ie!OC.

V ' THE LIFE AND COMEOBT Involved in the. Proposition to Change the Annual Moving Day. EVERYTHING IS IN ITS PAYOE British Scientists Think the Petroleum Sup ply is Inexhaustible. GA8 COAL DISCOVERED IS VIRGINIA The proposition to change "moving day" from April 1 to May 1 is meeting with almost universal approbation, and that it will be carried into effect there is scarcely a doubt. Eeal estate agents and landlords are equally in favor of the change. The custom is a legacy from the early settlers of "Western Pennsylvenia, who, for some rea son, found it convenient to niakefarm leases begin and end April 1. But that is no reason why it shouldjbe indefinitely continued, like a law of the lledes and Persians, to the great discomfort of a large class of people, and to the benefit of none except the doctors and grave-diggers. The need of a change is so generally recog nized that it does not require a prophet to pre dict that it will be made. w At tho meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, a few days ago. Prof. Hull referred at some length to the great expansion of the mineral industry of the United States. He agrees with the late Prof. Jevons that future British manufacturers must not expect to derive any help from the United States when coal shall have become dear or scarce at home In the discussion which fol lowed the papers numerous speakers expressed their agreement with Prof. Hull's anticipation of a heavy increase in the future cost 9! coal. Mr. G. W. Hastings, M. P., stated that in the Staffordshire and East Worcestershire; coal field the owners found that the recent increase in wages had considerably diminished their output. If these prognostications are true, English industry has an evil time before it. Fortunately we have an escape from such diffi culties in tho shape of petroleum. "The employment of petroleum in the arts is still extending rapidly," said Mr. Wm. Ander son in the presidental address baf ore the Me chanical Section of the Association. "Used originally for Illuminating purposes, it is now employed as fuel for heating furnaces and steam boilers, and as a working agent in heat engines. As a lubricant It stands unrivalled. As an illuminant, it is, even In this country, to a large extent superseding every other in pri vate houses, and even in public lamps." Mr. Anderson is sanguine upon the subject of pe troleum. He regards it as a universally ap plicable fuel, and he seems to believe that its deposits are practically inexhaustible. s The remarkable permanence of oil wells, and the apparently inexhaustible evolution ot hydro-carbon gases in certain regions almost force one to believe according to Mr. Ander son, that the hydro-carbon products must be forming as fast as they are consumed, that there is little danger of the demand ever ex ceeding the supply, and that there is every prospect of oil being found in almost every por tion of tho surface of the earth, especially in the vicinity of great geological disturbances. Mr. Anderson is full of confidence in the ca pacity of petroleum to fulfill all claims upon it to put it in a hackneyed phrase "with promptitude and dispatch." Improved methods of boring wells, be tells us, will enable greater depths to be reached; "and it should be remem bered that, apart from tho extra cost of sink ing a deep well, there is no extra expense in working at great depths, because the oil gen erally rises to the surface or near it." Mr. Anderson speaks with the authority of an able and intelligent expert, and his assurances may help English manufacturers to console them selves against the prophecies of the approach ing extinction of the coal measures. Tho results of experiments made with sam ples of gas coal recently sent to New York, taken from veins tributary to the Clinch Val ley division of the Norfolk and Western Rail road, in Southwest Virginia, establish the fact, in the opinion of the Roanoke Herald, that it will command a share of the patronage now en joyed by thr Pennsylvania, Westmoreland and Youghiogheny coals in all the Eastern markets. It is equal in valne to the best coals from the districts named, and is thought by experts to be superior to the gas coals mined on the Chesapeake and Ohio and Baltimore and Ohio roads. The veins aro five to six feet thick and very easily mined. Tho owners of these prop erties are prepared to make leases for coal operations on reasonable royalty. Tbo greater portion of the gas coal field is controlled by tho Tazewell Coal and Iron Company, with head quarters at Tazewell Court House, Va., and T. P. Trigg and associates, Abingdon, Va. Tho demand for this class of coal is increasing yearly, and it is expected that the shipments to Eastern cities from the line of the Clinch Val ley division during the year will be very large. The Philadelphia Real Ettalt Record takes occasion to, remark: "It is a noticeable fact that .the man who naturally takes to real estate either as an investment or as a safe way to husband his earnings, is generally counted among the winners. Ho may not be able to count his gains with the same frequency as does the man who speculates in stocks, neither is he compelled to estimate his losses as often, nor is be so frequently worried with financial embarrassment. The characteristics of the two men are entirely different. There is an air of solid comfort and equanimity about the man who owns land and houses, while the stock speculator's face and manner are indicative of his extra hazardous calling." LOST MEIi: GRIP. Philadelphia Gas and Electric Weak Spots of the Stock Olarket. Considerable animation was displayed by brokers at the Stock Exchange yesterday, as if they were possessed of a premonition that something would happen. Bidding was lively at times, and if holders had looked through buyers' eyes business would have been heavy. Sales were better than the general average, however, aggregating 405 shares. Philadelphia Gas was panicky on fresh re ports of shortage in the supply. The constant repetition of this story, with variations, has discouraged holders so much that they appear to have about "reached the conclusion that the best thing for them to do is to realize. The stock sold at 33 in the forenoon, and closed freely offered at 82. The Trust sold down to 30. These are tho lowest quotations ever made on these properties. All the other natural gas stocks were weak in sympathy. Wpctric waB somewhat weaker at 4SVT. Th! sagging is not particularly slinificant, being nothing more than a natural reaction from the sharp advance of last week. Holders manifest no uneasiness in regard to the future. The Tractions were dull and practically unchanged. Tbey are held above the views of buyers, who demand concessions to correspond to the earn ings and remoteness of dividends. The rest of the list moved along in the old way, heme as barren of features asa monkey's physiognomy. Bids, offers and sales are appended: MOKSDJG. ATITl!irnn Bid. Asked. Bid. Asked.' lf. T R Kf.

MOVING AL0KG H1CELY. The Bank Surplus Lamely Reduced SInco Ibo Fall Season Opened. Local bankers who were seen yesterday re ported a fair demand for discounts at regular rates. This is the backbone of commerce In money, and although its expansion has been slow it has been steady and uninterrupted since the beginning of the fall season. There is con siderable Idle money, but It should be remem bered the supply was very large probably $20,000,000-at the beginning. A. cashier said yesterdav he thoucht this amount had been re- r dnced at least one-half. This leaves the banks a good working margin, and puts them in a position to take advantage ot any unexpected expansion of business or flurry in tho money market. A bank out of funds might as well bo out of business. Check ing and depositing were good. Currency was rather scarce, as has been the case for somo time, and some of the bank balances were set tled with gold. Tho exchanges were 2,435, 004 93 anathe balances 319,302 S3.

There was considerable backbone to the oil market at the opening'yesterday, and it lasted for some time, but the big strike at Chartlers proved too heavy a weight tor the bulls to carry, and they finally turned tall. The open ing quotation was 1 01, the highest SI 0 the lowest 1 00, and tho closing 1 00. Pittsburg and Oil City were buyers, while New York sold. There Is said to be a fight eoing on between New York and Oil City for the honor of mak ing" the market, the former bearing and the latter bulling. The unpleasantness might de velop something interesting, and perhaps get things out of the rut, if there was only enough stuff to allow tbem full swing. The market closed weak as a result of the Chartiers gusher. Trading was of fair propor tion, but not heavy. Tuesday's clearings were 882,000 barrels. AParkersbug, W. Va., special says: The Eureka oil fieM, just above here in the adjoin ing county of Pleasants and upper edge of this county, is just now attraetlng a great deal of attention and reports from there are that the excitement is high and land is selling and leas ing at very high figures. The farmers and storekeepers here caught the excitement and are investing their all in oil ventures. Fcatnres of tho Market. Corrected dally by John M.

New Yobk, October ML The stock market drifted into dullness to-day, and had it not been for Atchison, Missouri Pacific, St. Paul and the two Trusts utter stagnation In business would have occurred. The bears resumed. their pressure upon those shares with the open ing 01 business, but it was without the vim of the late operations, and the impression made upon prices was small in comparison with the wide fluctuations of the past week. The pres sure in Missouri Pacific was a means of creat ing distrust of the Atchison plan of reorgani zation, which seems to have been a failure, and to-day, after the first raid was over, covering of shorts was in order. New tactics were used, however, to break prices, and money was manipulated up to 12 per cent, the influence of which was only to create a waiting market, and was partly offset by the decline in fpreign exchange rates. The trusts, after a decline of about 1 per cent, bo came positively strong, and in Sugar a rise of 3 per cent from its lowest figure was scored, though most of the improvement was after wardlost. Atchison was quite weak in the forenoon, bur recovered later in the day, and finally closed with a small fractional advance. The rights were sold moro freely to-day, and the clemand was such as to raise the price from A to , settling back to at the close. There were no really weak spots in the mar ket to-day, but some of the specialties dis played marked strength, notably Manhattan and Consolidated Gas, and among the low priced shares the Chesapeake and Ohio wero most conspicuous. The market at the opening was heavy under the pressure brought to bear by the bears and first prices were generally Blight fractions lower than last evening's fig ures, and although the early demand for stocks gave the list an advancing tendency at first, tbo entire list reacted and declines extending to 1 per cent from the best figures were established. The efforts for a decline met with too much re sistance, however, and Sugar developed most positive strength, jumping, up 3 per cent, and the whole list folloned, though the movements were generally made within the narrowest limits. Dullness and stagnation became the ruling features after noon, though Atchison and Cot ton Oil were Btrong. The market finally closed dull and steady, with most stocks but slightly changed from last night's prices, though ad vances wero in a majority, and important changes were few in number. Jersey Central lost li per cent, and Consolidated Gas rose 1J aDd Manhattan i. Railroad bonds were asrlin extremely dnll and entirely devoid of feature of any kind. Tho sales were 732.000.

The Coal Trade Journal says the anthracite output will be 3,000,000 tons less than last year. The largest mortgage recorded yesterday was for $12,210. Twenty-six others ranged from $10,000 to $225. It was the opinion of several prominent brokers yesterday that Philadelphia Gas hadn't quite reached bed-rock. It is unfortunate that when petroleum is ready to boom a big well should be brought in and upset all calculations. Booth & Fltnn are pushing things on Wood street. If the Central Traction be not in opera tion at the time promised, it won't be their fault. Black & Baird closed a transaction yester day involving three adjoining pieces of down town property. The consideration approxi mates $80,000. A distbibution dividend of about 80 per cent will be declared by the directors of the Pennsylvania Insurance Company within the next fortnight. More than one-half of the grading for the Oakland and Squirrel Hill Electric Railway has been completed, and the remainder is being vigorously pushed. The completion of this road will open up a fine residence district. Philadelphia advices say the Northern Pacific meeting' to-day will be harmonious. Wright and Wiflard control the situation. They will name the board and vote three-fourths of the preferred stock in favor 01 tne mortgage plans. Govehnoe Seat, of Alabama-, has sold to parties in New York $951,000 worth of Alabama bonds bearing 4 per cent interest, to replace the same amount ot 6 per cent bonds which are due January 1, 1890. Tb price paid for tho 4 per cent bonds was 101 1-10. A peominent capitalist was looking for well located tenement property in the East End yes terday, with a view to purchasing as an invest ment, instead of, as heretofore, putting his money in mortgages. He figured that it would afford him a larger Income than to loan on mortgage at market rates. Peesident G. B. CLAB&of thThoroasIron Company, says: "Steel rails are now $32 a ton, and you can't get any from us at a less price. Everything that goes into tbje making of rails is booming. The proposed purchase ot the Thomas Iron Company is still in abeyance. The English people are considering onr latest offer to sell at an advance of $1,000,000." The Baltimore Will Get a New Trial.

Carload lots are selling under 40c on track, but they are probably dear at this low price. The general price is 40 to 45c on track, and markets drag at these figures. Tropical fruits are in improved demand, a fact attributed to cooler weather and the wane of Home-grown fruit. Produce trade is in general quiet.

The run of perishable stuff is so crowding rail roads that lumber and iron are forced to wait. One dealer in bard woods reports that he has had a dozen or moro cars just outside the city iimits waiting their chances for several days. a the meantime bis customers are clamoring for stuff. Walnut lumber is fully 20 per cent lower than it was this time a year ago. The popular hard wood is oak. Poplar, ash and cherry are all In the lead of walnut at this lata for inside finish, in barroms, parlors and churches, and also for furniture. prai trsTLAsin tabu quotations.

The demand for drygoods holds up remarkably well, though there is no special activity in fall fabrics. Cut ters, converters and exporters are operating more freely, and the jobbing request continues fair, with considerable activity in new goods for spring, many of which are sold np for two and three months' delivery. The market to day is good and improving, though print cloths and kindred goods are temporarily weak. A few wholesale buyers from the West were in the market to-aay. The fall season is already voted one of the best, while the outlook for spring is unprecedented. Wool Markets, J?
