Leading Features of Markets at the
East Liberty Yards.
Stock Stronger, Low Grades
Steady, Primes Lower.
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.

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
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-
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:

Involved in the. Proposition to Change
the Annual Moving Day.
British Scientists Think the Petroleum Sup
ply is Inexhaustible.
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.
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.
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."
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

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.

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.
Money on call at New lork yesterday was
tight, ranging from 612, last Joan 10, closed
at 10 per cent bid. Prime mercantile paper,
6M7. Sterling exchange quiet and weak at
4 82 for 60-day bills, and 4 18 for demand.
Tho report of Manager William A. Camp, of
the New York Bank Clearing House, suomitted
at the annual meeting, shows a membership of

actions of these for the year ending September
80 were 36,554,103,002, of which 34,796,4Go 528
were exchanges and 1,757,637,473 balances. The
average daily transactions were 120.610, B. Tho
largest transactions in any day were 206,321,346.
Since the establishment ot the Clearing House,
06 J ears ago, the total transactions have amount
ed to 917,689,376,212. George S. Coe, President
of the American Exchange Bank, was elected
Chairman fof the ensuing year, and Mr. Camp
was re-elected Manager.
Astatement prepared at theTrcasury Depart
ment shows that the total amount of standard

Tho Strike at Cbnriiers Takes tho Snap
Oat of Oil.
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.

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
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

Railroad bonds were asrlin extremely dnll

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

Sealers In hard woods are unable to keep np
with orders owing to delays of transportation.
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.

New York. October 16. 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.
