Erin of Unripe Hogs Yery Heavy and
Markets Demoralized.
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 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
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
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
Lard trading was only moderate, and the
feeling was easier. Prices ruled about 510c
lower and the market closed quiet at inside
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.

Pittsburg Real Estate Dealers Re
port a Famine of Small Houses.
Coming Improvements in the Bearer Tal
ley Give Eealty a Boost.
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
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.
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.
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."

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. Sterling exchange quiet but weak at
$4 81 for 60-day bills, and $4 85 for demand.

There were lively times at the Oil Exchange
yesterday. A little boom was started in the

point reached for nearly four years. The mar

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.

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'
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
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

grapes are on the wane, and many now coming

fully justified by events. Markets arp quiet at
the decline. Cheese is steady at old rates, and
eggs are firm. Cabbage begins to come in very
freely, as the pyramids along Liberty street
amply testify, There is a firmer tone to pota
