TITUBSDAY. October 24. 1SS9. J
A member of one of our leading stove
manufacturing firms reports as follows con
cerning this important Pittsburg industry:
"Our trade is fully 10 to 15 per cent better
this fall than iast. The Exposition has been
a "real benefit to our line of trade. In the
multitude of visitors unusually large num
bers have ordered stoves for the coming win
ter. Heavy orders are coming in of late from
the far West.
"Not long since we shipped a carload of
stoves to Seattle, and orders are coming
in freely from Utah, Kansas and Col
orado. The advance in natural gas rates has
resulted in an extra demand for coal stoves.
"We have sold more coal stoves this fall than
at any time for five years past."
In the domestic market column of "Wednes
day's Dispatch it was stated that Dundee
Elgin creamery had been sold this week in
Pittsburg, in a wholesale way, at 24e per
pound. A representative of the "Grocers'
Supply and Storage Company," who claims
that this firm controls the entire output of
the Dundee creamery, reports that none of
this brand has been sold here this season under
27c per pound.
Upon Inquiry It is discovered that creamery
butter has been consigned of late to a Pitts
burg jobber lroni Chicago under the Uundee
brand. The first few consignments were fully
up to standard, and were sold at 27c per pound.
A few days ago, however, some of the same
brand was consigned, and, upon inspection, was
discovered to be held over as cold storage
stock, and was therefore not up to standard.
The consignee sold this stock at 24c, as we re
ported, but choice Dundee was sold here to
jobbers the same dav at 2c advance on this rate.
The price of the best brands or creamery butter
at Elgin this week is 23c The freight and
brokerage will brine the lay down price here to
sshade more than 24c There should be a fair
margin of profit to jobbers at 28c per pound tor
the best brands of creamery at this date. Last
week rates were lc above this figure.
The upward icovementof butter a few weeks
ago had the effect of drawing out reserves and
aT&o bringing oleomargarine to the front once
more, and the result has been a dropping
tendency to markets for the pure stuff.
Cattle markets have been very slow this
week, a fact due as much as anything else to
the scarcity of prime stock, which for various
reasons has of late been withheld from our
markets. Good cattle are drifting into strong
bands, who can afford to await better prices.
Though the run was large at Liberty this
week, the great bulk of receipts was common
stock, and the result was mean markets. Sheep
and lambs join in the downward movement,
and price are decidedly off from last week,
particularly for lambs.
Receipts of hogs at Chicago to-day were 27.000
head,audtheraugeof prices was SI 15g4 2ofor
packing bogs. There were sales or choice as
low as ; per pound. In November. 1878, park
ing boss sold as low as $2 65 per 10U pounds,
and in December as low as 52 45. 1 be highest
Jirice reached in December of 1878 was S3 per
00 pounds. In January, 1S79 the range of
prices was 2 503 90, and in June of the same
year hogs sold in Chicago for S3 35. In Sep
tember, JSSO. prices went up to 56 00, but in
October fell back to 4 15.
There are not many signs in sight favorable
to a bullish bog market. The past week shows
a steady decline. Corn and bog3 are as plenty
in the land as at any former period.

the week past at the East Liberty yards:

Three engines were in the roundhouse at

two other engines on the side tracks were

the upper end of the roundhouse, and is
said to have been caused by the overturn

lard and enrine oils. The road will be

Chicago. In point of activity the volume of
trading in wheat fell somewhat short of yester
day, and on the whole only a moderate business
was transacted. The opening was strong and
c higher than yesterday's closing, but later
became weak aud declined lKSlc, ruled
quiet aud closed c lower for December aud
Jjjc lower for .May than yesterday.
The early firmness was due to local specula
tion, and influenced some by the improved tone
of Liverpool advices, which quoted California
wheat ic higher. Bat it began to be suspected
that the advance on the other side being only
for California wheat might possibly bo due to
manipulation there. At the same time New
York failed to follow the full local advance.
The short interest had covered freely, and when
the longs began to realize a weak feeling set In,
and prices declined lc in short order. There
was no support until December reached 79c
and May 85e, when buying checked the de
cline temporarily, only to drop later to a still
The offerings at the early advance were not
large, the Northwest was reported to have
sold. While Liverpool reported firmer for
California, London reported cargoes on passage
as "slightly worse" and off coast as rather
easier. Regarding the movement m the North
west, advices were conflicting, some indicating
that receipts will drop off and others that they
are likelv to keep up.
In corn only a moderate business was trans
acted, and it was quite firm the greater part of
the session. The influences on the market
were much the same as yesterday, namely,
small receipts, firm cables and good shipping
demand. The market opened firm, a trifle over
the closing price of yesterday, was strong for a
time, then eased off a little on realizing by local
longs, ruled steady aud closed a shade better
Oats were a shade firmer early. The volume
of trading was only moderate and chiefly in De
cember and May.
In me!.s pork trading was only moderately
act! i e ai.d the feeling was somewhat unsettled
and prices irregular, with the balk or the busi
ness in November and January contracts. The
former was in fair demand and opened at 10c
decline, followed bv a further reduction of 20c,
but rallied again 17J620c and closed compara
tively steady. January was offered rather lib
erally and ruled weak, prices declining 1012c
and closing quiet.
In lard a dull aud weak feeling prevailed.
About 5,000 tierces were delivered on October
contracts. Prices declined 510c per 100
pounds and the market closed quiet at inside
In short rib sides very little was doing. Prices
ruled 25c lower and the market closed tame.

Father Bernard, of St Michael's Ger

Mr. Fitzpatrick, who holds Mr. John

right in charging the Southside children.
Father Sbeedy's school children were ad

children. Mr. D. C. Herbst was ignorant of

A Movement to Induce Him to Sell

LOCATING CAESEGIE'S LIBRARY.
Building Operations flext Tear Promise to
Smash All the Records
OLD PITTSBPRG'S L0KGEST STREETS
There is a qniet movement on foot among
certain property holders on Penn avenue to
have an act passed by the coming Congress
to condemn and sell the Government prop
erty on the corner of Penn avenue and Gar
rison alley, running through to the river,
upon which stand two old buildings on the
Penn avenue front, one of which is used as
a recruiting station and the other as a
bonded warehouse. A prominent local pol
itician is engineering the scheme.
It was suggested by tlje gentleman from
whom these facts were obtained yesterday,
that this would be an admirable location for
the Carnegie library building, the grounds
being ample and so sitnated as to make a struc
ture of the kind proposed show oS to the best
Pittsburg architects and contractors are of
one mind lnsayingthat the building outlook for
next year is ail that could be desired. A con
tractor said yesterday that this year's building
record, good as it is, would be badly broken in
1S90. for the reason that capitalists would go
into the business on a large scale. They have
fouod that building houses and selling them is
the best way to employ their money. It is now
known that at least three flats will be built
next season, so as to thoroughly test the ques
tion of their adaptability to this locality.
All this is encouraging to those who are iden
tified with the building trade as contractors,
mechanics, etc, and scarcely less so to dealers
iu building material, heaters, lighting appli
ances, electrical goods and other essentials to
comfort and convenience.
The iron market continues active, though tha
excitement of last aud previous weeks has in a
measure subsided. Prices are firm and un
changed, but a further advance is not improba
ble, since coke is creeping up and iron must
necessarily keeD it company. Coke is now
selling at S2 a ton for small lots. The mills are
very busy, with orders several months ahead
of their capacity.
Shipments are greatly delayed by the scarcity
of cars, which not only affects the iron trade,
bnt every other branch of business depending
in any degree upon the railroads for transporta
tion. -In speaking of the bulls and bears yesterday,
a stock broker remarked: ''From my own ex
perience I am inclined to believe that, in the
long run, a good steady bear has the best of it.
He is a quieter sort of animal slothful, per
haps, bnt satisfied to wait for his prey, and
when the latter comes his way he sits on him
with a vengeance.
"A bnll is more excitable, tilting madly at ev
erything in eight, rushing around withont any
apparently defined object, and oiteu making
much cry and little wool.' Both bulls and
bears are, however, very ugly animals to pur
sue. Pittsburg is a great resort for bears."
The following description of Pittsburg was
written in 1829:
"The town contains about 15,000 inhabitants,
consisting of native Americans, Irish, Germans,
Enelish, Scotch, lench and Swiss. It n admir
ably situated for trade and commerce, being at
the head of steam navigation. It is the mart of
the western part of New York aud Virginia and
the whole of Western Pennsylvania, whilb the
Ohio river opens to the enterprise of its citizens
the entire Valley of the Mississippi. It is des
tined to become one of the largest manufact
uring centers in the country."
The last sentence was prophetic The pre
diction has been more than fulfilled.
Pittsburg's longest street is Penn. It ex
tends from the Point to Wilklnsbnrg, a dis
tance of about eight miles. The next longest
is Forbes, abont six miles. Carson street,
Southside, is nearly as long. Fifth avenue is
about five miles lone. Liberty avenue is abont
the same lensth. Sarah street, Southside, is
four miles long.
All of these streets -are paved, and all are
traversed by street cars. Th ere is a great deal
of wealth in land, houses and business on each
Prof. N. S. Shaler, of Harvard, after a care
ful consideration of the much neglected condi
tion of the common roads in this country,
makes the following suggestions: '
'I would in the first place suggest that in the
Federal Department of Agriculture there
should be a commissioner of roads, having at
his command sufficient means to prepare and
print as public documents accounts of the con
pition of roadways in this country, with essays
on the method of their construction. Each
State should likewise have a commissioner of
public ways, whose duty it should be to ad
vance edncation in this class of questions in
every possible manner. To him the town and
county road commissioners should be required
to report. He should cause to be constructed
a map showing thelocation and condition of all
roadways in the State. These ways he should
classify as reeards their condition."
Prof. Shaler adds a few remarks which will
be appreciated by readers in the country dis
tricts around Pittsburg: "Our country folk
wallow in the mire of their ways, pay excessive
tolls, endure, in a word, grinding taxation, gen
eration after generation, withont appreciating
the burden which rests upon them."

Interest at the Stock Exchange yesterday, as
on Wednesday, was focused on Philadelphia
Gas.but only 125 shares of it changed bands, in

A broker who has qnietly picked up a good
deal of the stock remarked yesterday evening
after call: ''Iamsatfied'now that the bears
have been selling the stock short, one of the
regular trade, and there will be fun when they
try to get it back." It opened at 31 and
closed at 31. The feeling on the street was
stronger than on 'Change. The rest of the
natnral gas stocks were weak in sympathy.

" The bulls felt as if they had been feasting on
clover when the oil market opened yesterday.
The bears were also on band, and repeated
their tactics of the day before. They started
in to buy, and before they got through the
price was run np to 104.
The market opened at 103J. The highest was
104 the lowest 103 and the closing 103.
The bullish influences were a further advance
in refined, and statistics showing demand to be
outstripping production at a rate which nothing1
but tne development 01 a territory as nig as a
State can offset. The few wells recently brought
in are no more than a drop In the bucket.
Pittsburg was a buer. Oil City and New

Sustained in Railroad, Shares a a Result
of Bear Raids London Damps Union
Pacific and Other Special
ties Bonds Very Dull.
New Tore, October 24. The stock market
was less active to-day, especially in the after
noon, when the bears ceased their hammering
operations, bnt the temper or the dealings was
Irregular aud feverish, but rather weak
throughout most of the day. Considerable
bullish feeling was engendered by the an
nouncement of the traffic arrangement between
the Union Pacific and the Mortbwestern, bnt a
damper was put upon this when London turned
np as a heavy seller of Union Pacific aud other
specialties. The explanation offered was that
the pool which bad bought Union Pacific at
mnch lower figures was realizing on the ad
vance. The selling checked the buying for the time
being, and the bears and traders came into
complete demoralization, but there was still a
demand for stocks, and the mirket became
feverish within narrow limits for most of the
list. Kansas and Texas was almost entirely
neglected to-day, and its dullness was in
marked contrast to its sudden activity yester
day. Considerable pressure was brought to bear
upon the Grangers, though it was not until the
last hour that auy important impression was
made upon any of tbem, when KocB Island
yielded materially, and is the only one showing
a material loss among the stocks of the regular
The efforts of the bears were again directed
against Sugar refineries, and, aided by the an
nouncement of the opposition to the trust, they
were enabled to make a sharp decline in that
stock, though it recovered several times.
Missouri Pacific was a sufferer from the at
tacks of tho bear combination, and it was
broken over 1 per cent, but recovered a por
tion of the loss before the close. At the open
ing, prices were materially higher than tnoso of
last evening, and advances extended to per
cent, but after further slight improvement a
reaction occurred, and Burlington, Union Pa
cific and Sugar led the upward movement,
which, however, ceased after the first half
The market became more quiet, and prices
recovered most of the losses. Later there was
another attack upon Sngar, and the stocks of
the regular list declined fractionally in sym
pathy led by Missouri Pacific This raid came
to an end before delivery hour, after which a
stronger tone was shown and the market be
came devoid of feature, finally closing qniet
and fairly steady at fractional losses for the
day. Sugar to-night is down 2 and Rock
Island IK, while Denver, Texas aud Ft. Worth,
wbich'uas the only strong feature of the day,
is up IK-
Railroad bonds were generally dull, but the
heavy trading in Kansas and Texas 6a, which
figured for $140,000, and the Ft, Worth and
Denver Ists, which furnished $122000 out of the
total day's business of $1,162,000, made some
animation in the market. The toue of the deal
ings w as stronger than usual ot late, and mate
rial advances were scored in several issues, Ft.
Worth and Denver lsts being the feature.

New Yobit. October 24. The cool weather
made a favorable influence upon the demand
for drygoods at both first and second bands,
woolen fabrics being in special request with
the latter, and purchases of various descrip
tions of goods for shipment by water rontes
being stimulated. At the same time the orders
of cutters and jobbers for new fabrics contin
ued on a liberal sale. The market displayed a
fairly buoyant tone in view of the general
movement and the light condition of stocks
with both agents and jobbers. Values have an
upward look, though no changes may be immi
CATARRH TO CONSUMPTION.
Catarrh in its destructive force stands next to
and undoubtedly leads on to consumption. It
is therefore singular that those afflicted with
this Tearful disease shonld not make It the ob
ject or their lives to rid themselves of it. De
ceptive remedies concocted by Ignorant pre
tenders to medical knowledge have weakened
the confidence of the great majority of suffer
ers in all advertised remedies. Tbey become
resigned to a life of misery rather than torture
themselves with doubtful palliatives.
But this will never do. Catarrh must be met
at every stage and combated with all our might.
In many cases the disease has assumed danger
ous symptoms. The bones and cartilage of the
nose, the organs of hearing, of seeing and of
tasting so affected as to bo useless, the uvula so
elongated, the throat so inflamed and irritated
as to produce a constant and distressing cough.
Sanfobd's Radical Ctjbk meets every
phase ot Catarrh, from a simple bead cold to
the most loathsome and destructive stages. It
is local and constitutional. Instant in relieving,
permanent in curing, safe, economical and

Choice grades of potatoes are moving freely

The yield this season is below average. Cab

The subterranean river recently discovered
in France, in the Mlers district of the Depart
ment of Lot, has now been traced a distance of
seven miles to a point beyond which the three
daring explorers who undertook the task did
not dare to venture; as the river there takes an
abrupt plunge Into the bowels of the earth to a
depth impossible to fathom. It took three days
and nights to accomplish this journey of seven
miles and return, the greater portion being
done in a folding boat made of sail-cloth.
