SsmEla 'V--? LOCAL LIVE STOCK. Leading Features of Jlarkfcls at the East Liberty Yards. FEW PRIME CATTLE 15 OFFERINGS. Erin of Unripe Hogs Yery Heavy and Markets Demoralized. BHLEP AKD LAMBS DRIFTIXG D0W2 OFFICK OF riTTSBtntO DlSPATCn. 1 Wednesday. October a 18S9. j The general tone of markets shows no im provement on last week, but the reverse. The situation has been in fa vor of buyers all along the line. The biggest drop has been in hogs, which are from 20 to 30 cents lower than they were this time last week. Cattle receipts were close to 50 loads larger this week than last For two weeks previous to last the run was about "200 carloads each week for our local trade. This number was far beyond the wants of trade, and last week receipts dropped to 100 loads, which amount was as much below wants of trade as the pre vious week's receipts were above. On Mon day ISO loads were reported, and additional receipts since have brought the total close up to 140 car loads. A Very Small Ran. The proportion of prime cattle in this week's run was unusually small. A leading stockman gives as the reason for light re ceipts of prime beeves, the fact that export ers are generally going to headquarters, or sources of supply for their cattle. Said he: "Nearlyallliigu grade cattle are now held by strong bands in the country, who being unwill ing to sell at prevailing rates, force the export ers to come to them. The farmers wiio hold the finer grades or cattle are able to bide their time. They gather in the small bunches of this grade from their neighbors and hnish them up for exporters, than wait for the buyer to come round. For this reason large numbers of prime cattle are shipped through from the farms of Kentucky and Ohio direct to the sea board, and very few come to our markets as compared with former jears." The general range of cattle received at Lib erty this week was what stockmen call from verv common to fairly good. The few primes on the market held up fairly well to last week's prices. The highest price reached was $4 50. A few loads not quite so fine brought $1 30. Good butchering stock, such as our market calls for, weighing 1,100 to 1,300 pounds, held up to prices of last week. There was a good sup ply of fresh cows, and prices were fairly sus tained. At noon to-day stock was not all sold. bheep nnd Lambs. The supply was much larger this week than last, and the result was a sharp decline. Lambs suffered most by the drop, as the run was un usually large. The quality of offerings was generally inferior. Choice grades suffered least in the decline, but of this class there was a very small proportion of the total receipts. It is not a good time of the year for sheep, as bogs now have the field. The run ot hoes has been much larger this week than last and prices are 20 to 30c lower on common grades. Yorkers and Philadelphias felt the decline leas', but there was a sharp re duction all along the line. Said a leading dealer: "Large quantities of common unripe bogs have been coming to onr markets of late and their effect on trade has bren very demor alizing. We are getting stubble hogs freely now w hich ought to have come a month or two sooner. Shoats that were summered on clover and warmed up a little with green corn have of late been dumped on to our market in large quantities by farmers of this neighborhood, v ho fear that pnees will be low er later on. "Unripe live ock never pa s cither the raiser, dealer or buj er. and I would that onr farmers could be brought to realize this fact." Good goods are the winning card every time in the long run, and never was this fact more clearly demonstrated than during these times of close margins and small profits In live stock trade.

A requisition will arrive shortly from NewHaven.-Conn., for the mysterious young man who robbed Dr. H. A. Johnson recently at the cashier's window in the .First national Bank. He gave his name to the police as Harry Mil burn, but his real name is Farguhar. "While employed as bookkeeper for a firm in New Haven he is said to have embezzled $1,500 and escaped to Canada, bnt not liking the climate there came to Chicago recently. Farqnhar will be tried for his crime here, and if he escapes conviction he will be sent to New Haven- MABKETS, BY TOE. A Firmer Feeling Id Wheat. With Good Trading Shorn Coverlns Corn and Oais Stronger Mess Pork Regntniiic Lost Ground. Chicago Wheat was active, and a firmer feeling existed, which prevailed most of the ses sion, thouch occasional weak spots developed. The strength was caused largely by parties who bad sold freely the past few days trying to get some of their wheat back. Foreigners, it was claimed, had sent some buying orders and there was also long buying from other sources, which, together with the demand from shorts, created quite an active demand. , The opening was i&c higher than yester day's closing, which advance was followed by a further improvement of c Then occurred a break of Jc for December and He for Jlay, which was; followed by an advance of o for December and e for May, closing about JJc higher for December and lc higher forilay than closing figures of yesterday. May took the lead again to-day, selling from 3c to 3Je premium over December. The rea son for this may be that trading of late has been largely in Mav delivery, and, as operators pie f erred to sell this month rather than December, having less fear of manipulation, it created a greater short interest, and with shorts cover ing, consequently brought out a corresponding lv greater demand. The advance of to-day is looked upon bvmany as only temporary, though prices may bo car ried still higher. There was no doubt some buy ing on the belief that such will be the case, based upon the reported falling off of farmers' deliveries in the Northwest, which, however, may not show in the movement for several days yet. The buying was stimulated some by the report that 19 boat loads had been taken in New York lor export. Advices were somewhat contradictory on the export news, some claiming that the above re port included old business and others that No vember shipments were included. Late advices stated 14 loads, comprising seven boats which were loading for Lisbon. Some bad reports of the growing winter wheat were received again to-day from Michigan, and the rains in Ohio and Indiana, it was claimed, were only slight showers. A rather firm feeling was manifested in corn, and transactions were at slightly higher prices. The better tone was due largely to the smaller movement, to-day's arrivals falling short of ex pectations. A prominent local speculator was reported as being a purchaser to-day. The speculative market opened a trifle above the closing quotations of yesterday, was firm the greater part of the session, though no material advance was recorded, but final trades were a shade above the close of yesterday. Iu oats arrivals were below estimates. This produced a stronger feeling and prices ad vanced a fraction. Trading was moderate and well distributed. A light business was done in selling December and buying January at c spread. In mess pork more was doing in a specula tive way, and tne feeling stronger. A promi nent local operator purchased November rather freely, while miscellaneous shorts ac cented fair quantities for January, the bulk of which was obtained from manufacturers. Prices were advanced 1017Jic on the whole range, though outside prices were not fully supported. Lard trading was only moderate, and the feeling was easier. Prices ruled about 510c lower and the market closed quiet at inside figures. In short rib sideB rather more was doing and the feeling was stronger. Prices were ad vanced 1517)c on October and 2ffi6c on other deliveries, but the Improvement was not fully supported. The leading fntures ranged as follows: Wheat No. 2.

A POIHTER FOR CAPITALISTS. Coming Improvements in the Bearer Tal ley Give Eealty a Boost. THE OAKLAND IDEA 1H ALLEGHENY Although particulars cannot be given at present, it can be stated on the best of au thority that a prominent real estate firm on Fourth avenue is about to purchase a tract of land in the outskirts of Allegheny City, where it is proposed to lay out a boulevard and build a large number of brick houses for sale on the Oakland Square plan. The firm has gone so far as to offer a leading contractor a large salary to superintend the erection of the buildings. Another movement in realty of import ance which came to the surface yesterday was the sale of three acres in the Squirrel Hill district fer $10,000. It was taken on specu lation by a well-known capitalist, who desires his name withheld for the present. A member of the real estate firm of Charles Somers & Co. remarked yesterday: "We are having a good inquiry for almost all kinds of property. We have a number of applications for business stands on our books. The In creased interest in this direction indicates an expansion of trade. The bulk of the demand, however, is for medium-sized houses, costing from $2,000 to $4,000. Notwithstanding the large nnmber of buildings of this class erected during the year, they are scarce. It isjiardto find one that Is unoccupied. "Our population would increase much faster if we could provide cheap houses for Incomers. I hope and believe that a large number ot them will be built next year. I can see no better in vestment for capitalists. It pays better than mortgages, and gives less trouble. Cheap houses is Pittsburg's greatestneed. Capitalists are beginning to realize It, and from all that I can learn they will do a great deal next year to supply tho want." The good people of the Beaver Valley are awaking to the fact that there are great pos sibilities before them, and a lively movement in real estate is in progress. The principal reasons for this unwonted activity in one of the most conservative sections of Western Pennsylvania are the firm belief of a majority of the citizens that the proposed ship canal will be put through and that two or three electric railroads will be built next year, affording all the rapid transit necessary for the opening up and development of the country. In view of the probability that some, if hot all, of these great improvements will be realized, a syndicate, composed, it is believed, of electric railroad men, has been organized to buy up as much land as possible on speculation. This syndicate has already made extensive pur chases in the vicinity of Beaver and Bridge water, the immediate result of which has been to make real estate the liveliest interest in the valley, and to enhance prices 10 to 25 per cent. The success of the syndicate has induced other buyers to enter the field, establishing a brisk competition, which will Inure to the benefit of owners. The Beaver Valley enjoys a widespread repu tation for beauty of location and wealth of soil, but, owing to the conservative habits and methods of the inhabitants, legacies bequeathed to then: descendants by the early settlers, it has never enjoyed what is popularly called a 'boom," and perhaps it is all the better off for it. But a change has recently taken place. Many of the old settlers have died off, and a new and more progressive generation is in con trol. Old ideas are being given up and new ones adopted. The importance of improve mentof opening up new avenues to market and of quicker transit as an inducement to more rapid settlement which men formerly looked upon with disfavor, is now regarded as indispensable to the full development of, the territory, and the people are not only taking a personal interest in these matters, but inviting the co-operation of outside capitalists. This is all right, but a few words of caution to the promoters of these enterprises seem ap plicable at this juncture. Don't go too fast. Move cautiously so as to avoid mistakes. Avoid a boom. Keep values of realty within healthy limits. Bell as much as possible to those want ing to improve and as little as possible to spec ulators. Bmld bouses. Don't undertake more than you can accomplish. Keep out of debt. By working on these lines there will be little danger of a disastrous reaction. The Beaver Valley has a great future before it if its affairs are judiciously managed. Pittsburg is not doing all the building. It has been fairly active everywhere during the year. In only a few places has it been dull, while in a nnmber it has been unusually brisk. Numerous dwellings have been put up, facto ries have been built, additions have been made to both houses and business structures, and re pairs to all kinds of buildings have been thor oughly sustained. A few (very large buildintts have gone up in the more important towns and cities, but activity for the most part has been in the way of unpretentious and moderate priced structures. Such a year of building is in all respects the best for the trade, and in the long run is the most advantageous for the country. There is no reaction from such activity, whereas a boom, so-called, Is almost always succeeded by a practical cessation of operations. The pros pects for next year are excellent. w A "palace" chicken car is the latest develop ment of luxury in railway transportation. The idea of carrying live poultry hundreds, or even thousands, of miles comfortably, and with am ple arrangements for feeding, is by no means absurd. Some Chicago men of railway experi ence have bad one or two cars constructed so to as to contain a large number of separate coops with wire partitions, giving room for the fowls to move about, and with arrangements for supplying tbem with food and drink. Thou sands of chickens can be carried in one of these cars across the continent in good condition. In fact, one of the proprietors of the idea says that on the journey to California they will lay near ly eggs enough to pay the freight With such an inducement, added to the econ omy of space, the saving of the cost of the ordi nary clumsy wooden coops and the healthful and happy condition In whTch the fowls will ar rive at market for consumption, the palace chicken car idea certainly has many things to commend it. PHILADELPHIA BAIDED. Heavy Selling; Brcnhs the Backbone of This Favorite Secnrlty. Tbe.only feature of special interest at the Stock Exchange yesterday was a semi-panic in Philadelphia Gas. The movement was started by holders who believe the company is in deep water in the matter of supply, and they deter mined to realize at almost any figure. There was no news to justify the break, so far as could be learned. Said a broker: "I think considerable of the selling was short. If so, the sellers will find themselves in a hole, in my opinion." The first sale was at 32. From that it stead ily dropped, nnder heavy selling, to 32, closing at 31 bid and none offered. The sales were 700 shares. Electric and the Tractions were also weaker. La Noria about held its own. There was no material change in the rest of the list, though a bearish feeline prevailed all round. Bids, offers and sales were: MOBKIXG. AFTXBiroOX. Bid. Asked. Did.

GOOD TO HATE. A Fair Demand for Money, bat tho Surplus Remain Intact. The usual conditions governed the local money market yesterday. Although there was a fair demand for funds no particular impres sion was made upon the surplus. It is large enough to insure an easy.market the remainder of the season. Rates were steady and un changed. Counter business was fair. Check ing fell off a little. Small notes were scarce. As an explanation of this Manager Chaplin thought it probable that the people were hoarding them for use during the holidays. The exchanges were $2, 261,002 35 and the balances $281,178 SO. Money on call at New York yesterday was easier, ranging from 3 to 8, last loan 3, closed offered at 3 per cent. Prime mercantile paper, 57.

The mar ket opened at $1 00 advanced to $1 04, de clined to $1 O0K, rallied and closed at $1 02 The causes of the advance were good buying in Pittsburg and Oil City, and an advance of 20 points in refined. As soon as the shorts showed a disposition to get in out of the wet Oil City ran. the price up on .them. New York -was a moderate seller. More of the stock was wanted than they had to offer. There was considerable trading In cash oil, to be kept as a nest egg in the event of a squeeze. The close was steady.

Railroad Shnrrs Continue Strong and Active Under the Influence ol Easier Monry. Bonds Respond lo the Same Efficient Elixir. Nkw York, October 23. The strength in the stock market yesterday was continued to-day, and, while the trading was less active in the forenoon.lt increased later, when several stocks moved up rapidly. The advances, however, were not .so prominent, and, while the entire active list is again higher .to-night, the im provement Is generally confined to fractional amounts. Money was decidedly easier, especi ally In the afternoon, and the rate on call was gotten down as low as S per cent, which gave a' s:,"T3'f;- THURSDAY, OCTOBER ,.24, -1889.4 stimulus to the covering of shorts, and so fur nished a foundation for the advances scored. There is little news of importance Jn regard to tho railroads, but Kansas and Texas stock became a feature on the renewal of the rumors of yesterday in regard to a new plan of reor ganization, and the rumor ran that a settle ment of difficulties between the conflicting in terests of the bondholders would be settled to day. The return of this stock to activity under 8ucbcircurastances had an influence for good upon the Gould shares in general, and Missouri Pacific. Manhattan, Texas Pacific and Western Union all were more active and stronger. In siders were buyers of Louisville and Nashville, and the assertion that the stock is to go higher was persistontly circulated with marked effect. Union Pacific was also a special favorite, especially in the afternoon, when it became the leader of the entire list and, being taken quite freely. It roso rapidly, the Improvement being accompanied by stories ot a new bull pool in the stock. There was also talk of important results to flow from a proposed alliance with Northwestern and Manitoba. The coal stocks were steady and tho Vanderbilts and Villards firm, while the trusts were rather weak, with tho single exception of Chicago Gas, which was advanced sharply, but lost most of the im- Erovement The foreigners and commission ouses were the principal buyers of long stock, while the supply came from the professionals and some of the Chicago people, and the grangers made but slow progress. The opening of the market was rather irregu lar, but the general list displayed an advancing tendency, though the Trusts were weak and a raid upon values was indulged in in the early trading, which caused a recession of small frac tions from the opening figures. The strength ot the market soon became apparent, however, and a slow but steady appreciation of values, which lasted with bnt slight Interruptions un til the close of business, was inaugurated. Kansas and Texas was the most prominent feature In the forenoon, and Union pacific later in the day, but the Improving tendency .reached all portions of the list, and final prices are about the opening figures. Tho market closed quiet and strong. The important final changes are few in number. Union Pacific rose IK and Jersey Central and Lonisville and Nash ville 1 per cent each, while Bnear is down 1. The J'osCs financial article says : Compari son of the closing prices of last Saturday with those of 12 o'clock to-day shows that all the Grangers and also Union and Missouri Pacifies, Atchison, Louisville and Nashville bad just about recovered their declines of Monday, and were only changed by small fractions from their prices of Saturday, but the Coal stocks, with the exception of Jersey Central, bad not recovered, and Lackawanna, Delaware and Hudson and Reading were still from to 1 per cent below their last prices of Saturday. The acknowledgment by the coal agents at their meeting yesterday that the coal trade was not in a condition to justify the proposed advance in prices, but that a further restriction ot over 700,000 tons in the output for November was necessary is good reason for the heaviness of the Coal stocks; in fact, they are much more firmly held than might reasonably be expected under such circumstances. and this is especially the case with Reading, which has stood pretty firmly at about 44, which of the $58,000,000 of 5 per cent income bonds which come ahead of the $39,000,000 of the stock, the first preference incomes are selling at 80, the second preferred have got down to 61, the third preferred (of which there are $18,575,000) have got down to 61. The difference ot seven points between these and the stock is too smalLand in accordance with the prospects of the payment of anything on the incomes the difference should be at least 20 points. Railroad bonds were again quite active, the sales reaching $1,227,000, out of which the Texas and Pacific seconds furnished $255,000 and the Kansas and Texas sixes $130,000. The Kansas and Texas issues were again prominent for strength, but they failed to make any marked movement.

He added: "People may have to pay a little more for it, however, as its production is becoming more costly every dav, and the time when companies can afford tasup piy unlimited quantities of fuel, at a rate that is only a fraction of what would have to be paid for coal, is passed, and It will never return."
