The Shoe Upper Industry is at This
Time in Splendid Shape.
MANUFACTURERS BEHIND ORDERS.
Canned Heats and Dressed Beef Moving
Out Very Lively.
THE WEEK'S WORK AT LIBEETI YARDS
Office or PrrrSBtmo Dispatch. 1
Thubsdat. October I". 1SS3. J
J. D. Chantler & Co., who represent the
shoe upper industry in this city, and for
that matter lead in this line in the United
States, within the past year removed from
the McCance block and established them
selves on the fifth floor of the Diamond
street Dispatch building. It was thought
that the new commodious quarters would be
sufficient for a number of years. But busi
ness has grown untii it has been found
necessary lately to secure further room.
"When the firm changed its quarters the
number of hands employed was 86, two
thirds of whom were women and girls. Uow
there are, in round numbers, 100 employed,
and with the increase in number of em
ployes has come improved machinery,
which enables the 100 hands to turn out
proportionately more stuff than heretofore.
"Within the past week or two 15 new ma
chines have been introduced
Increnslns the Cnnaclty
fully 30 per cent. The donble stitching and
scolloping machines of the Singer Manu
facturing Company, and varions other
new devices have recently been added so
that the 100 bands now employed can readily do
the work -union a lew years ago would have re
quired fullydouble that number. The Chantler
firm is a month or more behind its orders, but.
with improved facilities and new machines
'hope to catch up before the mouth is nut. Or
ders are coming in from the furthest East and
"West. A look at the books of the Arm showed
orders ot recent date from Portland. Ore.,
Spokane Falls. Los Angeles, California, Salt
Lake, Boston and New York. It is a pleasure
to discover that Fittsburc is dome big things
outside of the heavy weight industries. In the
line of shoe nppcr rnanutactunng we are attbe
front, and this industry was never before in as
prosperous a condition as it is at the present
Canned Mean nnd Dressed Beef.
The canned meat industry has passed its bnsy
time, but October's trade so far, has been fully
SO per cent larger than last October, according
to the testimony of a representative of the Ar
mour firm. The brisk season for this trade is
in the summer months, when the societies and
Sunday schools take to the woods. It is
within bounds to say that the trade in canned
meats the past summer was 100 per cent better
than any previous season.
, An idea of the growth of the dressed beef in
dustry in this citv may be gathered by the fol
lowing figures: The sales of the firms engaged
here in this line last week were in round num
bers as follows: Winter & Dellenbacb, 200
carcasses: Armour fc Co., 170; Swift. 131, and
Hill, 136. From these figures it appears that
the daily sales of dressed beeves in this city are,
in round numbers, 110 bead. In addition to
this one of the four firms mentioned above re
ports sales of 40 to SO dressed sheep and as
many calves each week. The other firms, no
doubt, do equally well. It is evident from these
figures that the dressed meat industry has come
Liberty Live Stock.
It will be seen from the accompanying report
of the week's transactions that the through run
of cattle was unusually large, andlocal receipts
unusually light. A difference of 1,600 head of
cattle for the local trade in ordinary times
would have had some effect on markets. This
season, however, is an exception to all rules,
and breaks all precedents. Prime cattle were
lower this n eek than last in face of the light
run. The only class of stock that showed firm
ness was the light, tidy butcher stock. Low
granes naa toucnea Doitoni nexore, ana were
fairly steady this week.
Sheep were a shade higher, and hogs were
firm at last week's prices.

A Day of lips and Downs In the Cbtcnco
Wheat Pit A Moderate Business la
Corn A Little More Interest
Manifested In Lard.
Chicago Early trading was rather light in
wheat to-day, and tbo market ruled quiet and
barely steady for a while, then became weak,
with prices declining fie then rallied-rather
sharply under good buying, prices gaining Je,
ruled easy and closed about the same as yester
day. Some of the local traders haTe felt a little
bullish on the market tor the past day or two,
on the ground that for several days the price
for December wheat had not been allowed to
go below 82c Not that there is any special
significance to be placed on that particular fact,
but the market evidently had been "pegged"
there, and when it reached close to that point
to-day operators thought it was safe to take on
a little load. This buying, aided by better ex
port I nsiness assisted the upturn in prices, bnt
at S2Jc for December a prominent local trader
saw fit to sell a considerable quantity. Other
traders followed suit, and there was some real
izing on the early purchases.
A moderate business reported in corn. The
feeling was easier, and ttioujrh.at times the
market ruled higher,purchascs of year.Novem
ber and .May were made by a prominent local
speculator. There was no outside news brought
to bear on the market. The market opened a
shade below and closed, the closing quotations
of yesterday changed bnt little and closed H(
Jc lower than yesterday.
A weaker and lower market was noted for
oats due to receipts exceeding estimates, also
to the fact that shorts have covered of late and
longs wanted to unload and found few buyers.
Offerings were free and prices receded KKci
May being the weakest owing to the bulk of
trade being for that month. A fairly active
trade was reported in pork. Prices irregular,
the market closing at about inside figures.
A little more interest was manifested in lard,
trading bring light. Shorts provided for a few
contracts which tended to strengthen the
market slightly, especially for the near de
liveries. Prices were advanced 25c, but
settled back again, closing quiet. The market
for ribs attracted little attention. Prices ruled
57c higher for October delivery, while other
deliveries were without material change.

REALTY LOOKING UP.
A Good Inquiry for AH Kinds" of
Property in City and Suburbs.
CAPITALISTS ARE INTERESTED.
Some Plain Talk Anent the Decline in
Philadelphia Gas Co. Stock.
W0BK IN THE WILKINSBuBG GAS FIELD
An apparently well authenticated rumor
obtained considerable currency on Fourth
avenue yesterday, to the effect that a fine
boulevard is to be made at Oakland by
changing the course of "Ward street, so as to
run it directly through theMcKee property.
According to information received, the
boulevard will be 150 feet wide, with grass,
shrubbery and shade trees, and a good class
of houses on each side. A thoroughfare of
the kind indicated would add immensely to the
already great attractions of that fine district.
There has been a remarkable revival of in
terest in real estate within a week or ten days,
and the outlook is good for an active market
the remainder of the season. The inqniry Is
confined to no particular locality, but extends
to every part of the city and suburbs. The de
mand for business sites is better than for a long
time, while building lots are eagerly sought
for. Values are a little higher in a few favored
localities, but as a general thing they show
very little change. Capitalists are taking more
interest in realty this fall than usual, and many
of them are putting their money in it instead of
mortgages, as they have figured out that it
pays them better.
Speaking of the rapid decline of the stock of
the Philadelphia Gas Company, a Fourth ave
nue broker said yesterday: "The statements
of the company thattho plant is in better con
dition than ever before, that there is plenty of
gas, that recent shortages were dne to the fact
that new mains were being laid and connec
tions made, and that earnings are largely in
excess of last year, do not harmonize with the
facts as understood by the public If they did
the stock would be away up instead of away
down. Although I do not believe that gas is
giving out at the wells, it is certain that it is
giving out in the pipes. While the company
persists that there is plenty of gas, consumers
say they have barely enough to get along with,
and sometimes none at all. It is this
that is hurting the stock. It is probable
that the company has undertaken a greater
task than it can perform. The mistake seems
to be that it is seeking to supply a large part
of Allegheny county when it has only enough
gas to properly supply Pittsburg. If it would
limit its business to its capacity and not en
deavor to drive away other companies by in
vading their territory, by acting the hog,
in short, it would get along all right
and stockholders would not suffer. As
to earnings and all that, while" I do not pre
tend to say that the company's statement was
"cooked," everybody knows that it Is easy to
make figures. I think a more conservative
management more regard for the interests of
the many who have bought the stock, and not
so much for the few on the inside would bring
the company out all right. It is a matter of
great importance to Pittsburg, and there ought
to be no ahenanigin about it."
Contrary to general belief the Wllkinsburg
Natural Gas Company has not surrendered the
hope of finding gas in paying quantities on
the Weymond place, near town, but is quietly
at work on well No. 2, which is almost down to
the sand, lapcrts who have examined the
well say the indications are good for a No. 1
producer. The oil well is stlU plugged and
nothing will be done with it until the resnlt of
the new ventnro is known, as it is intended to
make it the final test of the field. Members of
the company think they will come out all right
Several important deals in down-town prop
erty recently stimulate the hope that that part
of the city is on the eve of an improvement
boom, of which it has long been in . need. In
point of location and facilities for the transac
tion of business, it is the most valuable part of
the city, but the buildings, for the most part
relics of a bygone age, are totally inadequate
in size and convenience to trade as it is now
carried on. Their substitution by first-class
structures would divert a large volume of busi
ness to that district which otherwise will go
out Penn.Liberty and Fifth avenues. If holders
of property down there are wise, and do not
want to make improvements themselves, they
will abstain from asking fancy prices of those
wanting to purchase and are willing to pay
a fair consideration, for the privilege of in
vesting their money in improvements where
they are most needed.
With the exception of plate, which has
hardened a little, there has been no material
change in the iron trade since last week. Rails
are firm at 32 and thereabouts. The mills are
very busy on orders, which they cannot fill fast
enough, although running night and day. New
business for early delivery is out of the ques
tion. The prospect is for a continuance of
activity throughout the season. In regard to
prices, a broker remarked yesterday that he
thought they had about reached high-water
mark. A further advance would be injurious
to the trade, as it would start up many old
plants now idlo and lead to overproduction,
and perhaps foreign competition.
BUSINESS GETTING BETTER,
A Good Movement in Local Stocks, With
, Few Weak Spots.
There was a fair amonnt of sales at the Stock
Exchange yesterday, but the dealings were
confined to two properties Philadelphia Gas
and Pleasant Valley Railway. The sales were
710 shares. In the bond list the movement was
limited to Citizens' Traction 5s, which brought
109. Pleasant Valley Railway shares were in
good request and stronger, showing that in
vestors have confidence that the pending deals
for consolidation will result in benefit to the
Philadelphia Gas opened with good support,
at 32, but later in the dav it weakened on free
offerings, and closed at 31. A broker fixed 25

checked. But the completion of the big main

favor. The other natural gas stocks kept

Banker Report n Moderate Demand for
Honey at TJnchaneed Rates.
The Pittsburg money market was easy yes
terday, with a moderate demand for accommo
dations at 567 per cent on call and time, but
only gilt-edged names at the minimum. There
was a good clerical business, checking being
the feature. The exchanges were J2,444,227 74
and the balances S257,I4S SS.
The disproportion between exchanges and
balances was due to heavy checking. The bal
ances of one ot the leading banks were only
$1,100; those ot another, one of the largest in
the city, were only a trifle over $1,400. The
right proportion is about 20 per cent Cur
rency was scarce, and considerable gold was
used in making settlements,

New Yobb, October 17. The Btock market
to-day was heavy and feverish in the forenoon,
but became positively weak later in the dav,
and material declines were scored all over tbe
list Several banks were known to bave called
in loans at 6 per cent and put the money out at
a higher rate, which, with tha vulnerability of
the money market to manipulation, developed
a great indisposition to buy anything this
morning, and, although liquidation was small,
the bears were encouraged and became very
aggressive, the local contingent and the Chi
cago people being conspicuous in helping
prices to a lower level.
St Paul and t he other Grangers were given
special attention in early portion of the day,
the earnings for St Paul for the last year being
known to be unusually large and a decrease of
liberal proportions was expected. The stock
yiefded fractionally and when the actual de

The Rector of tbe American College, Rome,
on tbe Pope's Health.
NewYoek, October 17. M"gr. O'Con
nell, rector of the American College at
Rome and a favorite at 'the Vatican, is In
this city, and talks quite instructively.
There has been much said about Pope Leo
and his relations with the Italian Govern
ment, but it is claimed that Mgr. O'Connell
is better informed on matters appertaining
to tbe Vati6an than any other member of
the Catholic clergy now in America.
"The Pope," said he, "is not going to die
this year nor next, nor still the next, and,
the Lord permitting, he may live a dozen
more years, so far as his health may now
indicate. He is still hearty and strong, and
works just as hard as ever about 16 hours
a day. He takes the greatest interest
in American affairs and the coming
Catholic celebrations in America.
Of the dedication of the great uni
versity at 'Washington he talks constantly,
and considers it will be one of the greatest
institutions of learning in the world. I
have come to America to represent the Pope
at the big Catholic meeting soon to take
place at Baltimore and also a) the dedicatory
services of the university. Before my leaving
Rome His Holiness sent his blessing to the
members of the Catholic clergy in Amer
ica." "What is the condition of affairs in
"The Pope deplores his present position
very much. There is no doubt but what the
present trouble will soon actuate His Holi
ness in taking some decisive step."
"Will he leave Borne, and, in that case,
where will he go?"
"Wiile regretting the indignities that
have been heaped upon the Vatican, the
Pope dislikes the idea of leaving the city
of his predecessors and the seat of the
Catholio Church for so great a period of
years. But if insults continue, there will
be but one thing to do, and that will
be to leave. There are many rumors
afloat in Europe as to where the Pope
would go, but uo one will know outside the
Vatican until the move is made. I see an
American politician has advised that the
English Government relinquish Ireland to
His Holiness. I have nothing to Bay about
the proposition, though."
PB0PITABLE CULTIVATION OP TEA.
Goed Reasons Why Ceylon Took It Up
Wbcn Coffee Foiled.
H. C. Green In New York Star.
I met yesterday) at the Metropolitan
Hotel, A, Melville White, an English gen
tleman, who is a large tea planter in
Ceylon, and is now en ronte to England.
He came by way of San Francisco, and is
taking a comprehensive view of the States
on his way home. He tells me that a dis
ease having destroyed the coffee trees in
Ceylon about five years ago, the planters
substituted, with success, the cultivation of
"About three years," he continued, "are
required to bring the plant up to a good
lea -bearing standard. The first year they
are allowed to grow up about seven leet
high, when they are cut down to a height of
tnree leet and Kept as low as tnat ever aiter
ward. The leaves are picked every ten
days all the year round, the whole planta
tion being gone over by the laborers, who
are imported coolies. The natives of Cey
lon are hopelessly lazy, and won't work at
it. About one laborer to an acre is re
quired. "The planters live in the hills in comfort
able bungalows, about 16 miles from Colom
bo, a city of 250,000 native population. A
climate of perennial spring and summer in
sures an ideal oriental temperature. There
are a few hundred English planters and a
garrison of English troops on the island, aud
a small but charming circle of society. Mr.
White has been 14 years out there, and ex
presses himself delighted with the country.
The Ceylon tea is fine in quality and de
licious in taste, and not unlike the best
quality of English breakfast tea. The cul
tivation of tea has become tbe great industry
in Ceylon, and the tea is becoming rapidly
known and used in England."

Country Produce Jobbing; Prices.
The stock of potatoes in the hands of com
mission men is lighter than for a week, or two
past. Good potatoes are firm and will soon go
higher. The late depression has been largely
due to the fact that an unusual quantity of
poor stock has been dumped on to our markets.
Choice potatoes will readily bring the outside
quotations. The sameobjection stands against
apples as potatoes. A large proportion of the
offerings is low grade. Throughout Pittsburg's
bailiwick the quantity of apples is below aver
age and quality Is generally inferior. Last
season the yield was extra, and the rule is fol
lowed this season that tbe famine follows the
feast. Grapes are In bountiful supply and fair
demand. Dairy products are active and un
changed. Poultry and eggs are scarce and
firm. Tropical fruits are in good demand and
the drift is toward higher prices.

was sold to-day as low as $10 per ton. Through
out the region of which Pittsburg is the center
the hay crop this season is unusually large, and
as farmers are taking advantage of good roads
te bring their crop to market, we are,havine a
surfeit of bay, and hence lower prices. The

MBS. ANNIE EVANS,
No. 910 Second avenue, has recently been cured
of catarrh and a bad lung trouble, from which
she had been a great sufferer. She had ringing
in her ears, pain over ber eyes and dizziness.
She bad a continuous hawking and spittine of
the catarrhal secretion that gathered in her
throat, and as the poisonous matter extended
to herlunes she coughed badly. The pressure
and pain she felt in her lungs told her only too
plainly that the disease was fast progressing.
Ulceration set in, causing frequent hemor
rhages. She became very weak; nervous, and
seldom could get a good night's sleep. Her
stomach gave her much distress after eating;
and she also suffered terribly from diseases pe
culiar to women. After consulting the physi
cians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute at
323 Penn avenue she began treatment, and of
the result she says: "I am very glad to give my
testimony. I have been cured oi all the above
diseases,andEladly recommend thesephysicians
to those suffering from diseases of their spe
cialty. MBS. ANNIE EVANS.'
