W. E. SebmerU recently retnrned from a
trip to Boston, and, as a matter of course,
gave special attention to the shoe industry
of that well known locality. Said Mr.
Schmertz to The DisrAiCH market editor
"The Xew England shoe factories are all
running to their utmost capacity, and are
unable to fill orders in some lines of staple
goods. I never saw the time the demand
was more active, and the result is that there
is an upward tendency in the boot and shoe
line. Haw rnbber is very scarce, and has
recently advanced ,from 10 to 12 per cent.
In the next few weeks there will, undoubt
edly, be an advance of at least 5 per cent on
all rubber goods. I found among all the
2Jew England manufacturers a very hope
ful feeling, and a strong iaith that the coun
try was entering upon
An Era ot Great Prosperity.
"As to the Pittsburg jobbing shoe trade,
October has so far been a quiet month, and
the volume of business is slightly below last
October. The weather has been too mild for
any boom in our trade. There has been no
cood rubber weather in this section this season.
The retail trade Is still welrsupplied with stock,
much more so than usual for this time of the
year. There has been a great change of late
years in this respect among retailers, that they
aim now to carry light stocks; and pursue the
"A few years ago they werelaccustomedtolay
In stock lor the season at one time, iow they
order as they need, throucb the drummeror by
mail, and tbe jobber is obliged to carry the bur
den. When tbe retailer wants bis stock he
wants it quick', and the jobber must be ready,
in order to bold his trade. As soon as tbe
weather breaks we will, no doubt, according to
all former experiences, have a lively time, and
make up for slowness olOctober.
ot a Barefoot Prosperity.
"The country is growing ana prosperous, and
the people mast have covering for their feet,
and bence we have no fears as to the final out
come ot our industry. We would prefer to
have our trade better distributed, and do more
in October and less in November, but are un
able to have everything just as we would wish,
and so try to adjust ourselves to the situation.
The tone of trade is good, the outlook was
never brighter, and tbe tendency is toward
At the Edgar Thomson Steel Works, Brad
dock, 2.200 tons of Dnished steel rails were
turned out in 48 hours within a few days. Tbe
average output is 1,000 tons daily. The recent
advance on steel rails or 12 a ton affords to the
company a profit of Jl 0 on e vh ton, the bal
ance going to tonnage labor. Tbe price of steel
rails in England is in tbe neighborhood of $18
per ton, and the experts here express the opin
ion tbat, with the advantage of natural gas
and improved machinery, tbe rail can be pro
duced at less cost in Braddock than in En
gland. Effect of Ir. Aryboiv.
Be this as it may, tbe Edgar Thomson works,
with orders ahead that will keep them busy
until after tbe first of tbe year, and producing
LOQ0 to 1,100 toes of steel rails daily is certainly
reaping a rich harvest. Two new furnaces are
now being pushed f orwarias fast as possible,
and one will be completed in January. When
completed there is little donbt that tbe "Edgar
Thomson" will reach a daily capacity of 1,300 to
1.400 tons of steel rails. Witn tbe upward
drift of prices still richer harvests await the
Dronnetors in the near future.
Tbe effect of this prosperity is seen in the
upwara moremeDi oi real estate in oar nour
ishing young suburb of Braddock. One only
needs to visit the jonng city on onr eastern
borders to discover everywhere tbe signs of
business, activity and substantial progress.
The number of men employed at tbe steel
works is above 3,300. and tee wages being dis
tributed to this large number, could not other
wise than stimulate all the smaller industries.
The result of Braddock's growth westward
and Pittsburg's eastward, will be, ere many
years, that Turtle Creek will be onr eastern

Chicago Trading in wheat to-day was large
In a speculative way; and prices were again
lower. Early In tbe day there was very good
buying, local operators taking bold freely in
the way of covering and also bought liberally
in hopes of a reaction. This held the market
firmly for some time after the opening within a
narrow range of prices. There was plenty of
wheat for sale and the "long" interest appar
ently well liquidated. A prominent dealer sold
freely most of the day. Early buyers failing to
get any substantial support and the market
not advancing finally turned sellers and this
effected the break.
i The opening was about Jc below yesterday's
closing, but the market ruled strong for awhile
and prices were advanced Jfc. Then the mar
ket held steady within Jfc range, but later be-
came weak, declining lc, and closed about lc
lower than yesterday. The influences were
generally bearish. Liberal receipts increasing

BUTCHERS' KUiN A KUISAKCE.
An Official Letter From Dr. Benjamin Lee,
of tbe State Board of Health.
The result of Dr. Lee's tour of the Butch
ers' Bun district is an official letter from
that gentleman addressed to Clerk Dil
worth, of Allegheny Common Councils.
After describing the motives which led to
the inspection of the run, Dr. Lee says:
Driving to a point above where any consider
able quantity of filth can find its way Into tbe
water, we then walked down, examining every
portion of the run which was not covered over,
until its termination in a well constructed
brick sewer. I found constant evidence of
pollution of tbe water by cesspool and sink
drainage, by offal from slaughte houses, flesh
ings trom tanneries, kitchen garbage and other
offensive and pntrifyiug material. In fact the
run is simply an open sewer, and from the con
formation of the land it is the only and the
natural sewer of the district.
Au open sewer of this kind in a popnlous
neigborbood is not only a disgraceful eyesore,
but a standing source of disease to the entire
"1 consider it as an unqualified nuisance. It
should be abated before tbe suns ot another
summer have an opportunity to fill tbe air with
its deadly emanations. The only means of
abating it consist in tbe construction of a prop
erly arched and grated brick sewer, similar to
that in which it terminates. I urge upon the
Health Officer and tbe Sanitary Committee, to
whom I beg you to transmit this communica
tion, to obtain the immediate consent of Coun
cils to tbe performance of this important work.
"Inasmuch as this run forms the dividing line
between the city and Reserve township, I
authorize the Health Officer to notify all per
sons in said township whose properties border
on said run to unite with Councils in the con
struction of said sewer. Failure to comply
with this notification will be considered au In
fringement of an order of the board, and will
render each party so offending liable to a fine

BRIGHT WEATHER A BLESSING.
It Gires the Authorities a Chanffl to Hake
TALUE OP U51F0RMITT IN BUILDINGS
There were several real estate transactions
yesterday of sufficient importance to merit
special mention. Black & Baird reported
the sale of three fine building sites on Lin
den avenue, above Fenn. One is 200x175
feet. The others are somewhat smaller.
The uniform price was (30 a foot front W.
A. Herron & Sons sold a handsome resi
dence, located between Shadyside and Boup,
to a well-known business man for $30,000.
The purchase; will make some alterations
and improvements and occupy the property
as a home.
Henry A. "Weaver & Co. and C. H. Love
stated that they were closing up some big
deals. John J. Howley is engineering an
important transaction in coke lands. Charles
Somers & Co. reported a good inquiry for
business property, while James W. Drape &
Co. announced a brisk movement in mortgages.
Thomas Liggett said he was nursing a dairy
deal, wh(ch would soon be in shape to be given
to the public
The good weather with which Pittsburg has
been favored so far this season has been a
blessing in more ways than one. It has not
only facilitated bulldinc operations, but It has
afforded a rare opportunity for carrying for
ward street improvements, both urban and
suburban, of great utility to the entire com
munity. Chief in importance among these may be
mentioned the paving of Penn avenue from
Point Breeze to Wllkinsbhrg, which haa pro
gressed so far as to insure its completion this
season. The rapid settlement of the country
between the points indicated renders a good
thoroughfare an absolute necessity. The in
creased country trade which it will be the
means of bringing to tbe city will soon pay the
cost of the improvement.
Of perhaps equal importance is tbe improve
ment of Atwood and Boquet streets, work on
which is being prosecuted with so much vigor
as to give assurance of their early completion.
The improvement of these streets will open up
tbe entire Oakland territory from Fifth avenue
to the river. This, with the addition of rapid
transit, which will be provided in a short time,
will greatly increase tbe attractions and advan
tages of this beautiful district for residence
California boulevard, extending from Alle
gheny City down the Sewlckley valley, is an
other work of great importance which the fine
weather is favoring. It will assist very ma
terially in developing one of the finest dis
tricts adjacent to Pittsburg a district unsur
passed by any other for natural beauty and
susceptibility of the highest improvement,
Tbe importance of maintaining the uniform
ity of buildings in a neighborhood seems to be
imperfectly understood by many people. This
is one of Pittsburg's shortcomings. There is
scarcely a street in tbe city which is not dis
figured by the incongruity of its buildings'
either along its entire length or in spots.
Oftener than otherwise, a fine house is seen
next to a small and cheap one. This spoils the
appearance of both. Now that capitalists have
commenced to build houses to sell, this fault is
likely to be overcome; as is shown in many dis
tricts where extensive building operations are
m progress, of which Oakland and the East
End are good examples.
One of the principal advantages to be derived
from putting up buildings of a uniform class is
the assurance that it furnishes a homogene
ous population people of similar pursuits,
tastes and aspirations making it mqreagree
able to airthan if the occupants wefesoutterly
heterodox in their affiliations and sympathies as
to render neighborly Intercourse a mere matter
of form instead of a spontaneous outburst. Of
course, no reference is made here to any par
ticular class ot people. This does not affect
tbe value or desirability of uniformity in the
least. In this matter what is good for one is
good for all. -
If tbe pioneers of Western Pennsylvania
could revisit tbe scenes of tb'elr privations and
sufferings they would be astonished at the
changes which have taken place In everything
since their departure. They thought they were
pretty snug when they were protected from
winter's blasts by clap-boards, with tanbark be
tween the boardaand lathing. That was luxury.
The houses of most of them were chinked with
mud between tbe logs. Now the mechanic and
farmer live in handsome brick or frame houses.
Garrets are things ot the past. The finished
attic to-day has more "style" than the dingy
parlor with its low ceiling could claim SO years
ago. Fifty years ago tbe head of the house got
up of a winter morning and walked a long dis
tance to a pump for the water he wasned him
self with, if be lived tn the country; if he lived
in the town, he went out to the hydrant and
sometimes fooled around it with a kettle of hot
water half an hour beiore he got water to make
his coffee. Now the 3-year-olds turns a tap, and
can flood a floor as easily as a giant.
If a man wanted to take a hot bath SO years
ago it was like cleaning up a whole house. By
the time tbe head of the house got through the
whole family favored one bath a year. The
fires were hot enough to roast an ox; the carry
ing of water made the help feel like fleeing
from bondaee. ow tbe babies wash each
other and riot in the bathtub. Mold candles
were luxuries, sperm candles a dream. Tallow
dips illuminated the pages tbe embryo states
man conned SO years ago, and some relied on
the glow from the top logs in the wide fire
places. Now we have oil, benzine.gas and elec
These are hut a few of tbe changes in tbe
mode of living which have taken place in the
last 60 years or less. What with finer houses,
plumbing fixtures, water supply and electric
bells, the world has changed so much that if
the ancestors of this generation could revisit it
they would think they were in another sphere.
Stock Broken Encnccd in an Uphill Fight
Local securities moved very slowly yesterday.
Bales at both calls were S10 shares. La Noria
developed the most strength, selling up toll.
Brokers were hungry for it at . Two old
timers Suspension Bridge and People's Nat
ural Gas joined the active list.
Philadelphia Gas continued its upward move
ment, but the other natural gas stocks were a
shade weaker. The tractions were neglected.
Litigation Is hurting them. Lawrence Bank
was wanted at 60, at which a few shares were
transferred. It closed with 62 asked.
The greatest obstacle to business is tbe fact
that Pittsburg people are carrying 50,000,000 or
$60,000,000 of local stocks,upon which they must
realize more or less before being in a position
to make further investments. The Immediate
outlook, therefore, is not particularly en
couraging lor a rusning ousiness.

AN ACTIVE MARKET.
A Reaction From tbe Weak Tone of the
Day Previous An Utter Absence of
Bear l'rcisnre Features of
New York. October 22. The stock market
was active to-day, but the tone of the dealings
was much stronger than yesterday and the re
sult of the day's business is to leave tbe entlro
list materially higher than last evening, though
in many stocks the losses of yesterday were not
recovered. Tbe advance was in a great measure
a mere reaction from yesterday's decline, the
improvement in values being mostly on account
of the covering ot shorts, though there was
some buying for the long account.
There was an utter absence of bear pressure
throughout the entire day, and although there
was some feverlshness in the early trading, it
soon disappeared, and the new demand for
stdeks made an active and decidedly strong
market, which lasted withont interruption
throughout the forenoon. When the covering
ceased tbe market became dull and prices
sacged, though such losses Here generally re
covered later in tbe day. A marked feature of
tbe day was the increased supply of money to
loan on call, and notwithstanding tho rates
went up to 10 per cent at one time it cause no
inconvenience because of the liberal supply.
There was a perceptible easing In tbe alter
noon, and rumors of an intended importation
of gold aided in making a more confi
dent feeling in tbe room. Sterling exchange
was again weaker, but is not yet down to tbe
gold importing point, and .the bouse men
tioned in connection with tbe importation of
gold denied that it bad an) such intention.
There was more heard in regaid to tbe short
age in cars in the West to-day, and while the
news of tbe day with a bearing upon tbe rail
road situation was meager, Chicago reports
were to the effect tbat all rate troubles seemed
to have come to an end, which probably indi
cates tbat the Chicago people have changed
their position on tbe marker. In conjunction
with tbe increased offering of money there was
a scarcity of stocks to loan, which Created an
apparent increase in tfie short interest froih
the renewed demand for stocks. Ihe opening
of tbe market was rather heavy, but strength
developed immediately and tbe business was
much more evenly distributed than usual of
late, while Sugar and Jersey Central were the
only weak spots in the marker, though both
joined the procession before noon, when prices
were generally from 1 per cent better
than those ot tbe opening,
The demand for stocks eased off and dullness
became tbe most prominent featnre of tbe
market and prices sagged off slightly though
tbe undertone of strength was very percept
ible. There was a renewal of the upward
movement in the last hour, and the highest
prices of the day were generally reached. Tbe
close was qniet bat firm at or near tbe best
figures. The Important advances were Chicago
Gas and Lake Erie and Western preferred,
lc; Delaware and Hudson, lc; sugar lc;
Northern Pacific and Manitoba, lc: Rock
Island, Missouri Pacific and Transcontinental,
lc: Burlington, lc; Union Pacific, Northern
Pacifio preferred; Denver, Texas and Ft.
Worth and cotton oil, 1 per cent each.
Railroad bonds were more active, tbe busi
ness footing up to $1,246,000, though out of
these West Shore "4s furnished 8313,000, and
Kansas and Texas sixes 8134. 000. The Kansas
and Texas issues were tbe feature of tbe
market, a rumor tbat a plan of reorganization
in whicb all the opposing interests could join,
causing a sharp advance In all the Issues.

slow at quotations, a fact dne as much as any
thing else to tho large amount of low grade

declared Its regular quarterly dividend of 1 per

Tbe only tangible result of the run on the
Lawrence Bank, and the nnfonnded stories

Reports from tbe property of the Pittsburg

continue to be very encouraging. Secretary

Isador Workser, of New York, said yes
terday: "Fortune favors the brave. The bears
have met with some success of late, but there
is nothing out of the narrow circle of Wall
street to warrant the depression wblch they
claim to feel. Business is bright. Railroads
are making lots of money. The iron and steel
industries are, good, and sunshine is general.

New Yore. October 22. The market for
staple goods was without active features, but
the light condition of supplies excites increased
attention and tbe tone gains in strength.
Bleached goods have an upward look. Large
lots ot either brown or bleached are scarce tor
early delivery. Print cloths have again ad
vanced and tend upward. Prints are in light
supply and steady In price. The active featnre
of demand relates to spring specialties, all de
scriptions of new fabrics meeting with marked
recognition by tbe trade. The staple checks
are very firm.
