IS TIME OF WAR.
0 who, that shared them, ever shall forget
The emotions or that spirit-rousing time.
'When breathless in the mart tho couriers met,
Early and late, at evening and at prime;
When the loud cannon and the merry chime
Hailed news on news, as fleld on field was won,
"When hope, long doubtful, soared at length
And onr glad eves, awoke as day begun,
Watched joy's broad banner rise, to meet the
rising sua. Scott.
The following fraternal address has been
issued by Department Commander Stewart
to the post commanders. It is a good ad
dress and has the right ring in it If the
enthusiasm is not already sufficiently aroused
this ought to serve the purpose of arousing
it to the required pitch:
We are now in the last Quarter of 1SS9. At
the beginning of the year I asked that special
effort be made to reach 50,000 membership In
the Department of Pennsylvania by January,
1S90, and believed it possible to reach that
number. We have gained largely, and in
many posts splendid work has been done in
recruiting. We have for very many years been
the strongest Department in the G. A. R. Our
positicn has been a matter of pride and honor
to every comrade. With a membership of
60,000 our position is secure for all time. No
other Department can surpass us. To those
who have been laboring earnestly to increase
our membership I desire to return my thanks.
To those who have not pnt forth proper energy
in recruiting I make an appeal at this time,
while yet one quarter remims in which to do
this work. An increase of 10 per cent in each
post will accomplish the desired end. See if
you Lave done this. If not please take the
necessary steps at once to interest the com
rades. Appoint a good recruiting committee,
or whati better, give each comrade a blank
application and ask bini to bring in a recruit
before January 1. Ifjou have gained the re
quired 10 percent continue the work and help
Appoint a competent delinquent committee to
give attention to the reinstatement of droppea
or suspended members.
It would be a glorious record to be able to re
port to the Department Encampment In Feb
ruary next bOO posts and 60,000 men, and to re
port a'so that not one post in tbe department
ehowB a loss for 1SS9.
Every post comimnder can share in the glory
of such an achievement. Activity and earnest
ness on tbe part of a commander of a post will
encourage tbe comrades. He should lead in
tho work. Call attention to recruiting every
meeting night. The department officers have
worked hard to advance the deuartment. I
personally have traveled over 18,000 miles thus
lar in this work, nut we are powerless unless
our efforts are supplemented by yours. Help
lis to reach tbe poiut for which we are striving.
Do not relax your efforts or cease your work as
long as an honorably discharged soldier wbo
would be a desirable member of our order is
outside our ranks. If you cannot secure his
application see if there is not some comrade in
the post who can. We can make this the ban
ner jear of the banner department. Let us do
Jt; then every department fficer and every post
omcer can always point with pride to the fact
that be contributed to that grand result.
If your post has been doing its full share of
the work I sincerely thank you for it. If not,
let me urge you to go work now in earnest and
resolve that this quarter shall show a good
Every post, lanre or small, can add to its
numbers. There is material enough in every
community. There are many dropped or sus
pended members who can easily be induced to
regain their membership, bhould the comrade
be unable to pay the reinstatement fee, then
help him by remitting all or part of it.
Remember that work is being done along the
whole line, and you will occupy an unenviable
position if at the close of the j ear tbe post you
have the honor to command is not up in its

A fair trade was transacted in corn within

Small receipts and unsettled weather were tho

AN 0EIGINAL IDEA.
A v Market Honse on the Allegheny
BiYer for Use of Both Cities.
DETAILS OP THE BIG SCHEME.
House Building Goes Bravely On, and a
Word About Moving Day.
PITTSBUKG AND HER LITTLE CBITICS
Land is scarce and valuable in the busi
ness part of Kttsburg, and any suggestion,
idea or plan to ease up the pressure and in
crease the business area is entitled to re
spectful consideration. From a multiplic
ity of devices there may eventually be
evolved a project whioh will give the neces
With this purpose in view, a former resi
dent of Boston, but now a prominent manu
facturer o'f this city, whose name is at the
command of anyone who may become inter
ested in the matter, in coversation with
The Dispatch representative yesterday,
advanced an idea, at once original and
novel, the adoption of which, in his opinion,
would bring into use a large amount of sur
face space in the heart of the
city, which is greatly needed for
business purposes. The idea is this:
That when the contemplated bridge
over the Allegheny river, at Fifth street, shall
be built, the space between it and the Sixth
street bridge bo floored and roofed over so as
to form a building of sufficient size and strength
for a market honse for the two cities, and so
constructed as to afford a convenient passage
way for teams and pedestrians from one side of
the river to tho other. In other words, the
proposition Is to make a continuous bridge from
Fifth to Sixth street, roofed and floored, with
doors, windows, stalls and other conveniences
for the purposes of a general market, and with
roadways at the sides and in the center to allow
of free and easy ingress and egress.
He is perfectly satisfied as to the feasibility
of the scheme. As to the cost, he thinks it
could be easily defrayed by the proceeds of tbe
sale ottbe property now used for market house
purposes in Pittsburg and Allegheny; or, if the
cities should prefer to hold this property for
other municipal uses, bonds could bo Issued to
cover tbe expense, which would not be great.
Rents from stalls and other market privileges
would be large enough to soon cancel the debt.
Tbe gentleman, who has given considerable
thought to th6 matter, maintains that it is en
tirely practicable, in proof of which he cities a
similar structure over the river Seine at Paris,
one over the Danube at Buda-Pesth, and the
old London bridge over the Thames, which was
covered with substantial houses, used both for
residence and business purposes.
Should tbe space between tbe Sixth and
Seventh street bridges be deemed preferable
for any reason centrality of location, for In
stancethe improvement could be made there.
The lateness of the season makes but little
'impression upon the building Industry. It was
active last week. Fifty-one permits were taken
out. Tbe estimated cost of the improvements
is $112,567. Very few large houses figure in the
list, the large majority being of medium size,
which is Just what Pittsburg needs houses to
shelter the bone and sinew, the wealth-creators
of the community.
So far this year, the permits issued from the
Bnilding Inspector's office, numbers 2,225. To
this must be added a large number of houses
in various stages of completion, for which per
mits have not been applied for. These number
probably 200, making a total for the expired
portion of the year of nearly 2,500, the cost of
which will exceed 5.250,000. This Is doing well.
Pittsburg is growing.
While nearly everybody is friendly to Pitts
bnrg for what she has done as a leader of
thought and action in all the great movements
of the age, once In a while a Rip "Van Winkle
irom some comatose community, Philadelphia
or Baltimore generally, pa s us a visit to gather
inspiration from the rush and push so charac
teristic of our people, stays a few days, and
falls to sleep again. Before doing which, how
ever, he summons up sufficient energy to say
that Pittsburg doesn't amount to much, is
overrated, that natural gas is playing out, that
the streets are dirty, the buildings Scrawny,
and more of the same sort of stuff.
Pittsburg nan stand any amount of this kind
of criticism. No one has ever claimed that she
is a pleasure resort, or a retreat for loafers.
The city was built for business, and the original
purpose ot its founders has been literally car
ried out. She is to-day. as she has always been.
a hive of industry, devoted to the development
of the resources of nature and all that is best
in man. Tbe streets are for business, and they
serve this purpose admirably. The same kind
of traffic passing over the streets of Philadel
phia or Baltimore would ruin them in a month.
The buildings are for use, not show. Still,
many of them are Imposing in size and dis
tinguished for architectural beauty. As for
natural gas. it hasn't played out. There is
plenty of it for manufacturing and domestic
purposes, and will d for years to come. Pitts
burg possesses other things to make her great
and prosperous, which shonld be taken Into.
the account by her critics for Instance, brains,
energy and money.
With her marvelous growth in population
and business, and with a manifest destiny to
still more completely overshadow all rivals,
Pittsburg can well afford to let her critics rave.
Of all the cities in America which will be
visited by the South ana Central Americans
nope will so deeply impress them as Pittsburg,
and of none will they carry to their homes
such pleasing and lasting recollections.
The principal features of local business last
week were continued activity in the iron trade,
and a liberal movement of all the staple prod
ucts. There were no material changes In values,
but they were well maintained. There was a
surplus of money, although many other points
east and west complained of a scarcity. Rates
were steady at 66 on call, and 67 on time.
Real estate was active.
In the speculative branch the features were a
bad break in Philadelphia Gas Company stock,
and a sharp advance in petroleum. The In
fluences affecting tbe Philadelphia stock were
those which have been psed bv the bears for
some time insufficient supply indicating a per
manent shortage, and loss of business resulting
in decreased earnings. The bears on tbe mar
ket were the only ones able to find sufficient
reasons for these opinions. The -stock closed
steady at a fraction above the lowest point of
The advance in petroleum was due entirely
to statistical conditions, which show a rapid
growth In consumption and a steady depletion
in stocks. In view of this fact, and of the ad
mitted scarcity of the product, and with no
prospect of making good the deficiency from
territory where operations are now in progress,
tbe opinion widely obtains that the present ad
vance will not be checked until the price
reaches SI 25 or Jl 60. Statistics favor the latter
Those especially interested in procuring a
change ot moving day from April 1 to May 1, to
avoid the Inclement weather which generally
prevails at the former date, should begin to
stir themselves, as time is passing and the fate
ful period is drawing near. So far landlords
have been very slow abont signing tbe agree
ment which has been drawn up by Secretary
Glonlnger, of the real estate agents' organiza
tion. This indifference is somewhat surprising,
since it is known that nearly all of them favor
It would be cause for regret if the movement
were to fall through after reaching a stage
which demands but little additional effort to
carry It to completion. Tenants, who are prin
cipally Interested in the change, should take up
the subject and insist upon landlords Bigning
the agreement. The change Is necessary and
should be made.
THE PAMC 0YEB.
Philadelphia Gas Company Stock Improv.
log Tbe Traction Totally Ignored.
So far as business was concerned yesterday's
stock market was a failure, the only sale"being
10 shares of Philadelphia Gas, but what it
lacked in activity it gained in strength, nearly
the entire active list being firm and higher, the
only notable oxception being Switch and Signal,
for which IS was the best bid.
Philadelphia Gas was decidedly stronger and
very sparingly off ered It sold in a small way
at 80 at which figure several hundred shares
could have been marketed, but holders, having
in some measure recovered from their scare,
concluded to hold on a little longer, as the tide
had turned in their favor. It was the opinion
ot some that the object of the only seller of the
stock was to start a movement which would
enable him to load up, being on the short side.
The only other featnre of the market was the
Indifference with which the tractions were re

A QUIET WIND-UP.
Railroad Shares Almost Featureless The
Bank Statement Makes No Im

at About Bottom
New Yobs, October 28. The stock market
to-day, while comparatively active for a Satur
day, was wlthou( general featuro of interest,
and except for one or two stocks shows bnt
slight changes as tbe result ot the day's trad
ing. The activity was confined to spots, and
while the general temper of the room was
bullish tbe traders were sellers of the market
and such advances as were made were after
ward neutralized. St. Paul and Union Pacific
were most active, but their fluctuations like
those of all otthe active stocks were fractional
only, and the only features of tbe day were
Michigan Central, which, after a long period
of stagnation, suddenly sprang into activity
and scored a marked advance, and Denver,
Texas and Ft. Worth, which continued Its re-.
markable upward movement.
The bullish feeling of yesterday lasted over
till this morning, and first prices were gener
ally from to percent higher than last
evening's figures, though Oregon Transcontin
ental was an exception, being down K, at 88.
Sugar was weak, and the further advances in
the regular list were confined to small frac
tious, and the npward movement soon came to
an end, after which prices sagged away slowly,
though Michigan Central rose from 98 to
84: Denver. .Texas and Fort Worth from 31
to 32, and Texas Pacific from 20 to 2L
There were some other strong spots in the
list, but their movements were small and unim
portant, wbllesngar dropped about 1 per cent.
The bank statement seemed to have no effect,
and the market finally closed quiet and rather
heavy at about the lowest prices In most stoczs.
Michigan Central is up and Denver, Texas
and Fort Worth 1, but the other changes are
all for insignificant amounts.
Railroad bonds were comparatively active,
and tbe sales for the two hours reaoned 885,
000, out of which tbe Fort Worth and Denver
firsts contributed $112,000, and the Texas Pa
cific seconds $111,000. The general tone of tbe
dealings was no more than firm.thnugb several
Issues showed marked strength. Sales of bonds
for the week, 6,837,000, against $1,557,000 last
