The September and October trade of the
Custom House on Penn avenue and Gar
rison alley, has broken all previous records
for these months. Said Secretary Keating
in an interview to-day: "We never handled
the quantity of goods in any one month that
we handled in September."
A large quantity of goods in the line of
statuary, bronxes and paintings that were
on exhibition at the Paris Exposition have
found their way to our city, being purchased
by visitors. One very fine bronze piece
purchased at the Paris Exposition by a
leading Fifth avenne jeweler reached here
in time to do donble duty, having been for
some weeks in our own Exposition.
A number of fine paintings, which.graced
the walls ol the Paris Exposition, and
there received honorable mention, are now
adorning some of Pittsburg's fine mansions,
and yielded to Uncle Sam's revenues 30 per
cent of their value, before passing through tbe
The receipts of cigars are steadily on the in
crease. This is one of the lines of imported
goods that never shows any decline, however
hard the times, or stringent money may be.
The trade In foreign cigars is having a special
boom this fall, and in fact, the trade in U im
ported poods was never in a healthier condition
than at this time.
The Government warehouse is unusually
well cleaned up, as importers are ready to take
away the goods so soon as It lands.
tildes and Harness.
The market is firm for heavy steer hides, hut
Weak for light weights, as it has been for a
month past. The general situation of trade re
mains much the same as at the beginning of the
Harness leather is dull, and stock in the hands
of Allegheny tanners has been accumulating
since tbe bediming of the month. Said a lead
ing manufacturer of harness leather:
"We are now between seasons, and look for
stock to accumulate from now on throngh the
month of November. According to' past ex
perience trade will not be active until Decem
ber 1. At present a direct cash offer would no
doubt bring concessions on the part of tbe
holder. Trade, however, is fully as good
as it was a year ago at this time,
ard there is less stock in the bands of tanners
here, though output is larger now than then."
When the revival comes, as it usually does
about the beginning of winter, our tanners
here will be among tbe first to reap the bene
fits, as their product is at a premium in the

Chicago. Wheat The market opened dull,
easy and steady for awhile and later became
more active and weak at declining figures.
Early trades were about c under closing
figures of yesterday, held until ll o'clock within
lie range, but after that broke off Jic, with
Ji'c reaction later, and closing e lower for De
cember and a lower for May than yesterday.
There was quite a pressure, to realize on, the
part of holders, and many of the early buyers
let go their holdings, finding the market would
not bulk Some of the traders who have ad
hered to the long side at the higher prices have,
it is claimed, turned to the selling side.
Tbe weakness was attributed to the continu
ous liberal receipts and the weakness in the
European markets. Influences, true, were
mainly one-sided and favored the short inter
est, hut prices are nearing an export basis, and
hile they may eventually go lower there Is
such a thing as tbe market becoming oversold.
xne majority ot traaers lean to me soon sine,
and when an effort is made to cover a reaction
may result. I.eceipts in the Northwest con
tinue large, aggregatimr at Minneapolis and
Dnluth ES5 cars, with 2.000 cars reported on
track at Minneapolis.
Corn A moderate speculative and fair ship
ping business was transacted in this market,
with the feeling quite strong earlv in the ses
sion, but as the day advanced an easier tone was
manifested, and the early strength was not
maintained. The speculative market opened
firm at HHc above the closing prices of yes
terday, and influenced some by small receipts,
was steady for a time, but later offerings were
larger, due to tbe weakness in wheat and bright
clearing weather, became quiet and closed a
shade lower than yesteruay.
Oats A stronger feeling developed, and, al
though the volume of transactions was light
and below tbe average, prices ranged higher.
Mess pork Not much feeling was exhibited.
Loccl manufacturers were inclined to sell for
November and January delivery, vnl prices de
clined 2025c on the former and710c on tbe
latter. October was fn some requeM from the
short interest, and prices ruled 1525c higher.
Lard A firmer leellng was developed, but
trading was within very moderate limits. Shorts
were anxious to purchase a few lots for Octo
ber delivery, and opening sales were made at
15c advance, followed by a f urtherappreaatlon
ot 10c Later a reaction occurred, and prices
receded 20c. Other deliveries were quiet, and
prices ruled 2K5c higher.
Short ribs 1 he market was neglected, and
trading was unusually light Prices exhibited
very little change.

FAIR PRICES BETTER FOR ALL.
A Nation of Aborigines Out West That is

EX-HAI0R HEWITTS HOTEL BUILDING
Pittsburg real estate owners have it in
their power to make or unmake the market.
If they become unreasonable in their de
mands business will fall off; if they shall
chow a disposition to restrict prices to a
fair valuation sales will increase. It is
gratifying to know thai exaggerated ideas
of values are the exception, not the rule.
The failure to carry ont a bnll movement on
Penn avenne is likely to prove a salutary
lesson. Buyers, as a rule, are willing to
pay fair prices for property, but when
their overtures are met by fancy figures,
they become discouraged and retire from
In this way needed improvements are re
tarded or abandoned altogether, and the
growth of the city hindered. This is a crit
ical period in the real estate business in'
Pittsburg. Capitalists are just awaken
ing to its importance as an investment, and
it would be poor policy to meet them on the
very threshold with exorbitant demands.
Holders of realty, therefore, should move
cautiously, and so avoid the mistake of kill
ing the goose that lays the golden eggs.
Occasional sales of property for special pur
poses to men loaded down, with money, and
who care very little what tbey have to pay, as
mentioned in a transaction a few days ago,
where 20,000 was given for a property worth
abont half as much, .are entirely outside the
market, and shonld not be urged by holders as
Pittsburg Is a wealthy community, but it will
not bear comparison in that respect with the
Osage tribe of Indians, whose reservation is
between Kansas and the Creek country. They
are five times as rich as the average of Ameri
cans, ten times as rich as tbe average of En
glishmen, and tbe French and Italians are
paupers in comparison. There are among the
Osages no penniless people, and none in want
except that insatiable want that always wants
more There are 1,501 of them, according to
last year's census. They havo in the United
States Treasury 7,758,691 of their own money,
drawing 7 per cent interest. This amounts to a
capital of 5,175 apiece for the whole nation-
men, women and children.
But beside this they have 1,470,000 acres of
land, equal to just about LOOO acres apiece.
This land is mostry-tfine and arable, and would
sell for an average ot 810 an acre, or 510,000 for
each Individual's portion, Tbis makes each
individual Osage Indian worth $15,172. Each
family possesses 60,000 on an average, and tbe
head of it, if he be industrious and enterpris
ing, can grow 10,000 worth of crops a year on
his 4,000 acres of land. He is raised perma
nently above want and above fear of want.
Hon. A. S. Hewitt, ex-Mayor of NewYork,
Is erecting a dwelling bouse at his country
seat, at Ringwood. Passaic county, N. J., which
for cheapness, originality, durability and fire
proof qualities will probably excel any struc
ture ever erected. Mr. Hewitt first erected
a balloon f tame; this he covered inside and out
with woven wire fire-proof lathing. On this he
placed a moderately thick roat of adamant
plaster, serving the roof in the same manner.
As a result he will have a stone house, posi
tively fire, damp and vermin proof, at less
than one-half the cost of a cheap frame build
ing and a thousand times more durable.
Tbe suggestion of cheapness in Mr. Hewitt's
device has a popular flavor for this as well as
other. communities, and if the claims set up for
it be fully sustained, it shonld be given a trla'l
by a local builder and its merits thoroughly
r tested. Whaf Pittsburg chiefly needs Is cheap
houses, but they must be good ones.
Believing that the course of events has
shown that the legal half holiday on Saturday
is not an nnmitigated pleasure, 'New York
brokers have again started a petition which
will be presented to Governor David B. Hill in
due course, asking that the Saturday half
holiday law be repealed and Wall street be
given the advantages which three hours extra
business would yield. Tbe petition is being
widely signed. It is stated that 9 out of every
10 commission brokers prefer returning to tbe
old practice of keeping shop open between 10
and 3 to putting up the shutters at noon.
Should the change be made in New York it is
quite probable that Pittsburg brokers will
make a similar move.
Considerable of tbe lumber used for building
purposes in Pittsbnre comes from West Vir
ginia. An Allegheny City firm has recently
built a large sawmill in Randolph county and
is building a railroad which will open up one of
the finest lnmber districts in tbe State. The
timber has a healthy appearance, stands close
together, and is, as a rule, remarkably tall and
straight. The number of large trees is surpris
ing. A recent letter from Randolph county
"The largest yellow poplar which I have
measured in this county is 22 feet 10 inches
around; the largest black walnut, 14 feet 10
inches (though stumps of this timber, where
the trees have recently been taken, are found
here over 20 feet around); the largest red oak,
17 feet 9 inches around; the largest wild cherry,
11 feet 6 inches around; the largest white ash.
12 feet around, the largest white oak, 12 feet 3
Inches; the largest black birch, 8 feet 4 inches:
the largest yellow linden tree, 12feet around; the
largest maple tree, 13 feet 4 inches around. Of
course these figures are not the average tim
ber, but serve to show tbe full development of
the timber in this climate."
England no longer spurns American ideas
In a recent letter from there the following oc
curs:' "It is a gratifying indication that our iron
masters have, during the depressed period
which preceded the current revival, learned
the lesson of adversity, that tbey are now tak
ing a very lively interest in all manner of
schemes for increasing the efficiency, and re
ducing tbe cost of their methods of produc
tion. Tbe reports of our various technical in
stitutes show that every proposal which has
these ends in view receives the readiest atten
tion in metallurgical circles just now. The ap
plication of electricity to mining and to metal
manufacture is one of the directions in which
we may expect to see English invention follow
America's lead more closely in tbe future.
"We recognize that great steps have already
been taken In America toward the employment
of electricity as a motive power not only for
street traction, but also in workshops and for
general industrial purposes. If one may judge
from the increasing attention the matter is re
ceiving in this country it seems likely that wa

WHAT BANKERS JIKB DOING.
A Good Demand for Muney. but Nothing Kerr
Business at the banks' yesterday was satisfac
tory in character and volume, but nothing in
the way of new features was discovered. -There
was. as has been the case all along, a good
supply of funds for which' there was a moderate
demand at 67 per cent. It would take'doubly
gilt-edged names to get money from banks for
less than the Inside .figure. Some of the banks
complained of a shortage of both currency and
exchange. The exchanges were 2,110,875 01
and tbe balances 329 233 07.

tbe local bulls came to the rescue and the mar

GOOD IN SPOTS.
Railroad Shares Store Feverish Than Ac

Trust Conspicuously Weals Early
Loiies Partly Recovered.
New Yoek. October 21 The stock market
to-day was active in spots, but tbe general list
was quiet to dull, and feverishness marked the
dealings from opening to close, while the coal
stocks and trusts were weak and the Vander
bilts. Union Pacific and specialties were strong,
all within narrow limits. Tbe news of the day
was not importanr, and while there seemed to
be a great'indisposition to buy, the selling was
done principally by tbe traders, though the few
weak stocks were tbe objects of bear attacks.
There was considerable support to the market
from the covering of shorts, aided by some lit
tle purchasing by commission houses. The
matket was narrow and uninteresting through
Sugar tooku'p the greatest amount of atten
tion, and the selling of that stock at the open
ing was very heavy, supposed by some to be In
side offerings, but which had tbe appearance
of another bear drive to others. The stock,
after opening only K lower, at 6 rapidly re
ceded to -67. and. after a material recovery,
dropped to 67K- There were undoubtedly
large covering orders executed at the decline,
and the recovery from the lowestprices extend
ed-to 3 pet? 'cent, and It closed strong at 70.
Cotton Oil was strong when Sugar was weak,
and weak when Sugar was strong; and in the
last hour it was sold down to 41, against 42 at
The Coal stocks were the weak spot in the
regular list, and persistent efforts were made to
get Reading and Lackawanna down, with con
siderable success in the latter, though the final
detllne was not important. There was notable
support of Reading by the interest whtcn has
stood behind It for a long time. TbeVander
bilts were strong, but moved within narrow
limits, and failed to make any material im
provement, while among tbe specialties Den
ver, Texas and Fort Worth and Colorado coal
were conspicuous, the latter after a material
decline at tho opening. The dealings were
marked by great irregularity and fever
ishness from the opening, which showed differ
ences from last evening's figures of from to
K Per cent, and while the early tendency In the
regular list was to advance, the changes from
strength to weakness were frequent and rapid.
The general result of the morning's business
was to leave the active stocks at a shade under
first prices, the only really weak spot being tbe
Coal stocks and Sngar. There was a more
settled tone to the market after noon, and the
early losses were Generally recoveied with
something in addition, but the pressure upon
the list in the last hour accompanying the de
cided weakness in Cotton Oil made a rather
heavy close. The final changes are irregular,
but in most cases in the direction of higher
prices, though while Sugar rose W, and Denver,
Texas and Fort .Vorth 1 per cent, Cotton Oil is
down l'i and Northern Pacific 1 per cent.
Railroad bonds were again comparatively
dull, the sales reaching only 1,050,000, and no
active feature was to be noticed.

Potatoes are coming in and going out freely,
