Chicago Wheat Trading was only mod

the market was quiet. Tho opening was tame
aud feeling slightly weaker, but under good
buying a stronger feellngdeveloped, and prices
.were advanced QKc, tben weakened, aud de

of Saturday. May again held up better than
December, and the premium weakened, rang

SKQle over.
Foreign advices did not note any special
change, quoting the markets quiet and steady,
excepting for California, which was quoted a
trifle higher. The visible supply to-day formed
one of the principal features on the market.
Early in the day it was estimated that the in
crease would not be as large as had been cal
culated upon Saturday: In fact, the first pg
ures showed only small increase in stocks, and
this had a strengthening effect. But later, as
the returns began to show a larger increase,
there was come disposition to realize, but hot
until after the figures were posted, did the
market break to the wide point. The biggest
increases were at Minneapolis, Dulnth, Buf

Receipts in the Northwest, although large,
did not by any means reach the figures esti

were reported taken to-day at New York for
export, two for Lisbon and three for South
Africa. Local traders bought quite freely
early in the session, but a prominent floor ope
rator sold freely during the da.
In corn a fair specnlative trade- was trans

near futures in particular were quite firm, the
distant deliveries showing but little change.
The influences on the market were much the
same as for several days past, namely, shipping
demand, decreasing stocks and small arrivals.
Eastern markets were up Hc while cables,
though dull, were' a trifle higncr on the "off"

In mess pork there was only fair trade re
ported. The feeling was comparatively steady
and for November delivery prices averaged a
trifle higher.
In laid the market showed a little more
strength in a general way. October was in fair
demand and cold at 2C25c advance, due to a
'Squeeze" the contracts claimed to be held by
a refiner and an exporter. Other deliveries
were steadier but not materially higher.

Their Sapid Growth One of the Sig
nificant Signs of the Times.
Popularity of Apartment Houses, Which
May Become a Local Feature.
The country in close proximity to Pitts
burg is full of bustling towns, and all of
them are growing as fast, or faster, than the
city proper. Ten years ago a gentleman
who had recently removed from Allegheny
to Edgewood, had occasion to stop at "Wil
kinsbnrg, and was compelled to inquire of
Station Agent Keihl where the town was."
II was strung along Penn avenue and could
not be seen from the station. Nowjill the
ground around the station, as far out as
McKee s woods, and up and down the railroad
from Edgewood to Brnshton, is covered with
houses. In ten years the population of Wil
kinsburg has more than quadrupled. It is now
about 5,000,
This is only one Instance of the rapid growth
of the suburbs. Other towns have done almost
as well as Wilklnsburg in the same time. On
the east there will soon bo a compact body of
buildings from the city line to Braddock, or
Wilmerding, recently christened East Pitts
burg, and on the west as far down as Sewick
ley. If capitalists will only build cheap, com
fortable houses there will be no difficulty to
find people to fill them. Give Pittsburg a
chance to grow.
As time passes and land in the cities becomes
more valuable than at present, flats or apart
ment houses will be recognized as a necessity.
They will afford the only practical solution of
the difficulty of sheltering large numbers of
people unable to buy land upon which to build.
This matter has received considerable atten
tion In Pittsburg within the past year or two,
where land is becoming scarce and dear, result
ing in high rents and scanty accommodations,
and, from present indications, it is safe to say
that two or three flats will be built next year to
test the practicability ot the system In this
city. If these shonld prove a financial success,
more will follow. From the high character of
the gentlemen interested in the project it is
reasonable to believe that success will crown
their efforts.
Flats are popular wherever they have been
introduced, aud there is nothing to justify the
oninlon that they would be a failure here.
Within a few years they have become a feature
in Washington. The building of the Portland
apartment house there a few years ago was re
garded as a somewhat risky experiment, but it
was a success from the beginning, and the town
is now provided with SO or 4U other buildings of
a similar kind. The newest as well as the most
elegant and commodious of these structures is
the Shoreman, just completed- for Vice Presi
dent Morton, on the site of the old Hooper
mansion, which was bought by Mr. Morton
when he was a Representative in Congress.
The building is seven stories high, and covers
an area of about 14,000 square feet, having an
eastern front of 126 feet, and a southern front
of 111 feet. It is regarded as absolutely fire
proof, and the arrangements for light and ven
tilation are perfect That there was a demand
for sunn a building is shown by the scramble to
obtain apartments and the tact that many ap
plicants must be disappointed. Besides other
tenants the Shoreman will shelter a little col
ony of Senators aud Representatives.
The same is true ot New York, Boston, Phil
adelphia, Chicago and other cities East and
West where flats have been introduced. Ap
plications for apartments are made long before
the buildings are completed. That they are a
financial success is shown by the tact that the
average profit onuch investments is stated to
be 12 per cent

A curious method of laying floors has
been adopted in France, and has obtained a
wide application. It consists In putting down
flooring, not as hitherto on sleepers, but in em
bodying the boarding in" asphalt The new
floors are used mostly for ground stories of
barracks and hospitals, as well as for churches
and courts of law. Tho advantages of this
flooring, which only requires an even bed on
which to rest, are said to be that dampness
from below and its consequeut rot is prevent
ed. Floors may be cleaned quickly and with
the least amount of water, insuring rapid dry
ing. Vermin cannot accumulate in the joints.
The further claim is made that unhealthy ex
halations from the soil cannot penetrate into
living rooms. Asphalt being impermeable to
damp, rooms become pure even if they are
not vaulted underneath. In buildings with
several stories, as in hospitals, the vitiated air
of the lower rooms cannot ascend, an object
which it has hitherto not been possible to at
tain by any other means known.
In a recent issue of a German newspaper at
tention is directed to the fact, observed in some
of the streets of Frankfort-on-the-Maln, Ger
many, that the asphaltpavement in the immedi
ate neighborhood ot large gas mains is rapidly
destroyed by escaping gas, deep cracks being
formed. This has been found to be particularly
marked at places where the underlying layer of
beton was imperfect, due to the interruption of
the work over night while laying. It this be
true it;f umisbes an additional reason for' pre
venting the escape of gas from the mains in
cities of this country, which has given so much
trouble by explosions in sub-ways and sewers.
Brokers Stand OfT and Talk About Stocks

The first movement in bank shares for a long
time was the feature of most interest at the
Stock Exchange yesterday. For Philadelphia
Gas SO was bid aud 81 asked at the close.
Very little of it was offered, indicating a firmer
feeling among holders. Natural Gas of West
Virginia wis m the market at 77? a decline.
Wheeling Gas also yielded a fraction. The
tractions were dull and barely steadv. Switch
and Signal was weak. Other features were un
important Brokers generally are buoyant and hopeful,
if not altogether red-headed. They think there
will be an advance all along the line Before
long, but give no reason for the faith that is in

Fair Dcmnnd for Money, With Plenty of It
for Emergencies.
There was no especial feature In the local
money market yesterday, 'There was a' fair do-'
t,.' fW ' - " - j,
mand at tho usual rates, and a supply equal to
all requirements. Routine business was good
all round. , , ,
The exchanges were $2,521,8ol 40, and the bal.
ances S429.0S6 93. The tact that Pittsburg put
Baltimore In a hole last week was gratifying
to the business community.
Henry Clews & Co., New York, say in their
financial circular: An easier feeling has pre
vailed in the money market during the past
week. The Interior demand for currency is
growing less urgent, and the time is approach
ing when this will have been satisfied and cur
rency should begin to flow In this direction. By
this we do not mean that easy money Is in im
mediate prospect and yet an Abatement of the
recent tension is to be anticipated. The con
tinued contractions in loans, amounting to
about J12,000,000 within the last three weeks,
has materially strengthened the bank reserves,
and so tended to allay uneasiness in that re
spect. Moreover, 'bond purchases have been
more liberal the last few days about three and
a quarter millions and this has afforded some
relief. Still further, the Bank of England has
succeeded in Increasing Its gold supplies 250,
000 net during the week, and this in Bpite of the
interior British demand and considerable ex
ports to Brazil.
As a result of these conditions, while current
rates for both call and time money have ruled
at about previous high figures, the stringency
is less pronounced and a better demand for
commercial paper is noticed; though the high
rates tend to diminish the snpply. The foreign
exchange market has been heavy, owing to a
better supplyof commercial bills. In fact, the
condition of our foreign trade is one of the
most favorable features in the situation. The
revival of trade in Great Britain Is causing an
active demand for our exportable products,
while the same influence tends to restrict im
ports: thus not only averting an unfavorable
trado. balance, but also stimulating the demand
for home manufactures. Our total exports in
September reaphed $65,074,000, compared with
51,934,554 the same month in 1SSS.
Money on call at New York yesterday was
easy. Prime mercantilepaper, 55if. Sterling
exchange quiet but steady at fl SIJi for KWay
bills, and $4 Sa for demand.

Wide Fluctuations In Oil, Caused Partly by
Bogna Well News.
The oil market yesterday opened strong at
10 on good Eastern buying aud a further ad
vance of 10 points in refined. Local buyers
then went to work and run the price up to 109.
At this juncture the report ot a well at
Sheffield, Warren county, said to be doing 300
barrels an hour, obtained circulation on the
floor. This was a veritable wet blanket to the
buoyant bulls, and under its influence the
market broke to 105. This report was soon
contradicted, however, and the market quickly
rallied to 10 and closed steady at 106 bid.
The latest report from the Sheffield well was
to the effect that it had. been brought in, but
that its capacity had been greatly. exaggerated.
It is probably a small one. How the report
started Is not known, but it afforded the bears
a good opportunity to get out of a hole.
Altogether it was a lively day in oleaginous
circles, trading being good ail alone the line.
The longs rid themselves of a good deal of tho
stuff when the bears assumed the responsi
bility of carrying., Trading in puts and calls
indicated a still higher level of nrlces to-dav.
Saturday's clearings were 899,000 barrels.
A telegram from Mannlngton, W. Va., re
ceived yesterday afternoon, stated: Workmen
began to drill out th,e last plugs in tho Hamil--
um on wen mis morning, ana tne wen will DO
let in some time this evening. The Hamilton
was the first and only well that has entered the
sand in this region, and hundreds of leasers
and oil operators are gathered here to watch
the amount of the flow. The importance of
the Hamilton well lies in the fact that it is at
least 20 miles In advance of any other well in
the "Big Injun" sand, and practically locates a
new oil field. The majority of the operators
believe it will not do less than 100 barrels a
The fever for land speculation in this section
continues, and hitherto unheard-of prices are
paid for land within any reasonable distance of
the oil line.

Again Seen In Wall Street Railroad Shares
Weak and Feverish, Closing Lower
Sugar Gets b Black Eye
Bonds, Firm.
NirwYOBK, October 28. The stock market
to-day was quiet to dull an feverish and gen
erally weak throughout most of the day, and
except fora fewBtocks which received support
the entire list is lower to-night than on Satur
day. The same favorable influences were still
at work to-day to cause a further Improvement
in values, but the small surplus shown by the
banks on Saturday Sfter a wholesale contrac
tion of loans was somewhat disappointing to
would-be buyerswhile the demand from West
ern centers for money still continues. The
Beading statement of earnings for September
was also quite disappointing and caused a dis
position to sell the Coal stocks, which early
made tleading and Lackawanna especially
weak and factors for depression In the general
Mr. Gould was out In an interview, in which
rather hopeful ideas were-given expression to,
and this made the Gould stocks somewhat
stronger than the general list after the Vander
bilts, but the disposition to buy was effectually
checked and the bears again lit upon Sugar.
while the tendency to still discuss the North-!
western-Union Pacific agreement in an un
favorable light aided in making the Grangers
weak and feverish. Denver, Texas and Ft
Worth continued its advance in the early trad
ing on what seemed to be inside orders, but it
later collapsed completely and" led the decline
which became more general and at the
close for no apparent reason it shows one of
the most important declines of the day. This,
with the continued weakness in Sugar, weak
ened the rest of the list and toward the close
the downward movement became more pro
nounced. The opening of the market was active and
irregular, but tho first tendency of prices was
downward, especially the Coal stocks, and
though the movement was arrested for awhile.
Sugar joined the downward movement and the
entire list, while growing dull, was feverish and
weak. The Vanderbilts and Gould stocks
wero the stroug feature with Denver, Texas
and Ft. Worth, but after 12 o'clock oven these
stocks gave way and in the most cases the im
provement was lost In the forenoon, while
Denver, Texas and Ft Worth became the lead
ing weak point
Tho others yielded slowly but steadily, and
the market finally closed quiet aud weak at
about the lowest prices of the day. The entire
list is lower, with a few unimportant excep
tions, and Sugar Is down 2Jf, Denver, Texas
and Ft Worth 1, Lackawanna add Chesa
peake and Ohio seconds preferred, Burlington,
Transcontinental and St Paul 1 per cent each.
Railroad bonds were again moderately
active, and In general showed a firm front, es
pecially in the forenoon, but later the list
weakened in sympathy wltb stocks and many
declines were established. The conspicnously
weak feature was the Kansas and Texas issues
on the less favorable aspect of the reorganiza
tion scheme, and ail three Issues are down 1
per cent The sales reached $1,494,000, out of
which the Texas and Pacific seconds con
tributed $208,000, the Kansas andTexasS103.000,
