Wednesdat, October X. ISS9. J
lEeceipts of cattle this week were about
,130 carloads, or about 20 loads more man
last weeK. yuautyaveragea up otuu vuu
for some time past There was a larger pro-
pportion of export cattle than usual in. this
K week's receipts. Some 25 loads of Ohio
steers, weighing from 1,350 to 1,600 pounds,
found ready sale at a range of 4o to 4Jc,
being bought by Myers, Gilchrist & Co. ior
export This firm was the only one in the
field buying export cattle. They had no op-
j. -j position and no competition.
, jk Tbe Best Export Cattle
1T sold in Chicago this week at S5 10, and a
very few in a retail way brought the same
, " price at East Liberty. A leading stockman
of liberty, upon being asked this morning
why prime cattle should bring higher pnees at
Chicago than here, said: "At Chicago the
primes are much better than anything offered
at our yards ot late. Here we will have a few
car loads of what are called primes, whereas
there will not probably be more than two or
. three in each load which are strictly prime. In
"Chieac-o there ara offerincs eTery day of cattle
by the carload which will grade up first qual
ity through the whole load.
"For this grade there are always buyers
there, and the Pittsburg butchers who want
this class order direct from Chicago.
Very Rarely to bo Seen.
"A full carload of prime cattle is something
no longer seen at the East Liberty yards. Of
the 23 loads received this week called pnme,
not more than four loads of the best quality
could have been called from the entire lot."
Good butchering stock, weighing frem 1,200
to 1.300 pounds, such as this market demands
of late, held up f airlv well to last week's prices.
All low grade, half-fatted stock was slow,
and as large quantities of this grade have been
dumped on to our markets of late bv farmers
who wish to save the expense of wintering
sales are only made by liberal concessions.
Sheep nnd Lambs.
Supply was unusually light and little more
than half that of last week. Quality was gen
ually inferior, and markets, while more active
than last week, did not come up to general ex
pectation. A few very choice bunches sold
better than a week asro, and all grades may be
reported a shade better, a fact due entirely to
short supplies.
iWith a run equal to last week, and the pro
portion of low grades as large as this week's re
ceipts, bottom ould have dropped out of mar
kets. LIcliter Run of Hoes
The run of hogs was lighter this week than
Ilast, but was fully up to demands of trade.
, Regular buyers have not as yet begun to dip in
heavily. The best selected hogs were quoted
ito-day at $4 404 45.
. .At Chicago this morning $4 10 was the out
side rate, and total receipts there were 27,000
head. Tuesday is the great day for nearby
hogs at the East Liberty yards, and markets
are always weaker on that day because of low
quality of stock. Said a leading dealer this
"Oar neighboring farmers cannot understand
why their hogs do not bring the same prices as
those from Chicago.
Corn and "pnrertbs.
'Corn is more valuable here than in the
West, and less of it finds its way to the spare-
'rlbs of the porkers. Clover, pumpkins and a
little green corn may fill up the hog, bnt the
fat made in this way, like that made from beer,
is not the solid, substantial kind. There is
much (rreater shrinkage in our Pennsylvania
than Chicago hogs. I have known hogs
shipped from Chicago to New York in which
the shrinkage was 5 or 6 per cent less than
those shipped from Pittsburg to the same

Chicago. There was a stronger tone and
better feeling manifest in thewheat market
most of the session. Trading wis on a fair
scale, but could not be called large. There was
some selling of December and buying for May
by the same parties, and the latter month ruled
at the full premium paid yesterday over De
cember. The market opened about Ha higher,
ruled quiet and steady, and then sold off about
ic, recovered again, selling up JSc, and
closed about Jc higher for December, and o
higher for May than yesterday.
English advices were not encouraging to hold
ers, quoting dnll and quiet markets. The
quantity of wheat on ocean passage, as re
ported by the Board of Trade dispatch, indi
cated a decrease of 880,000 'bushels. Pans,
however, was quoted Sd higher, and a cable was
received noting a redaction in the stock of
-wheat at Odessa of 1,700,000 bushels during the
month. In addition there was a'belief of a re
vival of export business. Operators look for
lower ocean freights. There was a rumor of
22 boatloads being taken at New York, but this
was denied, and the actnal business placed at
five boatloads. Philadelphia wired prospects
of seven loads being taken.
Receipts continue larjre in the northwest.
Rain was reported in Illinois, Iowa and other
btates. There wis considerable covering of
shorts during the last halt ot the session when
the bulk of the trading occurred.
Corn The firm undertone that has been
manifested in this market for several days past
became more apparent to-day. A very strong
feeling prevailed, and transactions were at a
considerably higher range, more especially the
near months, November and December, which
received the most attention. Unfavorable
weather for curing the new crop started shorts
on the near deliveries and a sharp advance was
recorded. A prominent local speculator was
reported as a liberal purchaser of November,
taking in the neighborhood of 400,000 to 500,000
bushels on the advance. There was also some
Investment buying of May noted to-day. The
market opened at yesterday's closing prices,
was strong and gradually advanced c for No
vember and c for May, ruled firm and closed
with near months c and May Hc
higher than yesterday.
Oats were stronger and 9Kc higher. Trad
ing was fair, but chiefly in May, the near de
liveries, with tbe exception of December, being
neglected. The strength was attributed to
lighter arrivals than was expected and the
sharp advance in corn.
Mess pork A moderate business was report
ed and tbe feeling was unsettled. Prices de
clined SI 251 30 on October and 1517Kc on
other deliveries, and tbe market closed tame.
Lard Very little business was transacted in
the lard market, and the feeling was easier.
Prices ruled 50c lower on October deliveries,
while other deliveries were about 2c lower.
Short rib sides Trading was unusually
light, and the feeling was weak. Prices ruled

New Yobk. October 30. Business in dry
goods was without new features. There was
considerable demand fortap!e and patterned
goods for prompt shipment by-water routes
and a well sustained volume of orders for new
spring fabrics from both jobbers and cutters.
Stocks of plain and patterned goods are light,
and prices are accordingly firm. Heavy colored
cottons, as a rule, are in fair shape. Southern
brown cottons are somewhat firmer. Tbe print

Advice of a Prominent Jurist to the
Toung Men of America.
Brick Mating One of the Host Important
Industries of Pittsburg.
Judge Braden, formerly on the Butler
county bench for many years, but now a
citizen of Allegheny and a practitioner in
the local courts, in an interview yesterday
gaveiis views on the tendency of the specu
lating spirit which is so marked a feature
of the American character. Among other
things he said "In a long experience,
covering a generation or more, I have known
but tew instances where men succeeded by
departing from their regular lines of busi
ness and embarking in speculative schemes.
It is my observation that where one succeeds a
hundred fall. There seems to be a mania for
specnlation among onr young Americans which
I regard as one of the most unfortunate traits
of our national character.
"As a corrective of this evil I would advise
molders of public sentiment to impress npon
young men the necessity of learning trades or
professions, and of sticking to them."
Last week was another period of enormous
railroad traffic From every quarter is heard
the loud cry, "Give us more cars," while thero
has not been a single feeble appeal for lower
rates. The reports of earnings have furnished
ample proof that tho traflic which the rail
roads are now handling is beyond precedent.
It seems as If all at once every influence had
combined to swell the volume of freight. Coal,
coke and ore make the heaviest proportionate
draft on the equipment, and the movement of
all these has increased in an extraordinary de
gree, and at the same time the active condition
of all manufacturing Industries has furnished
more freight of this class. Of course, this
condition of affairs Is tbe natural feature of
heavy crops, which In turn are pressing on the
railroads, and so satisfactory assurance is
given that tbe movement is not temporary, bnt
Is certain to continue through the winter and
For the third week in October 29 roads report
an increase of 13 per cent, only three of them
showing losses, while the Northern Pacific has
the enormous increase of S117.086 and the
Louisville, New Orleans and Texas almost 50
percent. On the whole, the reports average
better than ever before in any week.
Brick making is an important industry in and
around Pittsburg, where clay of the best qual
ity is abundant and fuel cheap. For a year or
two some of the manufacturers have been
using natural gas, and find it preferable to any
other f nel, being more economical, baking the
brick more evenly and giving them a better
color. About 50 firms are engaged in the busi
ness. Both fire and building brick are turned
out in large quantities. Three or four of the
largest kilns turn out from 80,000 to 40,000 brick
a day each enough for an ordinary seven
roomed house.
The oldest brick works in Pittsburg are those
ot William Moore. They were established In
1SS6. Three or four are in course of construc
tion, among them one by J. J.'Howley, on his
Oakland Park property. This is Intended to be
the largest brick plaqt in the city, having a
capacity of 60,000 a day, and it will contain all
the latest improvements in machinery for the
manufacture of fire, building and paving
About a dozen firms are engaged in the pro
duction of fire brick and tile exclusively, the
oldest of which is Kier Brothers, established
In 1849. Pittsburg Drick of all kinds has a good
reputation for color, shape and durability, and
finds a ready market at home and in tbe sur
rounding country. Over 60,000,000 brick are
produced In Pittsburg annually.
Eastern drygoods merchants agree that there
is considerable increase in the volume of busi
ness, and that the orders from Portland, Ore,
to Portland, lie, are larger than usual at this
period of the year. The indications are that
the forthcoming holidays will bring a season of
great prosperity to each and every branch of
industry. These indications certainly favor
the conclusion that tho country at large is
Pittsburg wholesalers report a large trade,
with a prospect of a heavy increase during the
holiday season. Labor has been so well em
ployed for most of the year that almost every
body has money to spend. In view of this fact
dealers in all kinds of holiday goods are pre
paring for a rushing business.
It is said that the Cotton Oil Trust is to be
transformed into a corporation under tho laws
of New Jersey. Tbe present certificates
amount to $42,000,000. The new company will
have a capital of 521,000,000 and a collateral
trust bond 5 per cent of $11,000,000. All the
property of the present trust, amounting to
about 523,000,000, will be transferred to the new
company. This includes about $7,000,000 cash
capital invested in seed at this time of the year
and the oil prodnct of mills on its way to the
markets. The certificate holders will be asked
to exchange two shares of certificates of S100
each for 100 of the new collateral trust bond,
to the extent of one-half their holdings, and
for the other half they will receive par in the
stock of the new company. This plan will re
duce the face value of the outstanding securi
ties to 532,000,000.

A good many people were sony yesterday
that they had lost their beads and sold Phila
delphia Gas stock on the recent slump. It was
higher and active, and a majority of the brokers
on 'Change were hungry for it. Like the fel
low in Greek mythology, who was doomed to
perpetual hunger with plenty of food before
him, but just beyond his reach, people who
wanted the stock cannot get It, because holders
thought it too good a thing to part with.
A few jrgs were offered in the forenoon at
31, with 31 bid, but there were no sales, both
sides being uncertain what later developments
would be. In the afternoon, nnderthe influence
of good buing demand, it became quite
active, selling to the extent of 347 shares, with
many wants unsupplied. The first sale was at
31. Trom that it quickly advanced to 31J
ana then to 32, amid considerable excitemeut
and offers to bet that it would reach
S3 before the end of tho week.
At 32 the advance was checked' by a
curtailment of offerings and buyers dropping
out to compare notes before going in deeper.
Tbe last sale was of two shares at 31, bought
at about 30, which the holder, getting Beared at
the last moment, concluded to realize on and
so avoid further anxiety.
Having a good start, it will be surprising If
the stock does not reach a considerable higher
figure than 32 before the upward movement
subsides. There was no news affecting the
property either for better or worse. The ad
vance was due solely to the buying demand,
based on the belief that the stock is worth
more money than it has been bringing for some
time For Trust 31 was offered.
The other active stocks were Pleasant Val
ley Railway, Alleeheny National Bank and
Central Traction. The latter sold at 80, a de
cline It was afterward said tbe sale was
merely to make a quotation, and this is bome
out by tbe fact that tbe seller wanted to buy
the stuff back at an advance. Tbe rest of the
list was entirely featureless. Bids, offers and
sales are appended.

the best buyer. Trading here was "choppy," in

Bears Make tbe Most of
New York, October SU The stock market
was again irregular, feverish and unsettled to
day, and as usual of late all the interest in the
dealings was concentrated in two or three
stocks, while the remainder were dull and
traded in within tbe narrowest limits. There
was no news of a character to affect values, bat
rumors were plentiful, and the market got its
stimulus in the forenoon from a story that tbe
Union Pacific had purchased a controlling in
terest In the Chicago and Alton, which would
be taken into the new alliance, and so removed
from the way as a disturber of the prevailing
harmony. This story,' with the aid of some
London buying of Union Pacific and a few other
favorites, sent Union Pacific up over I percent,
and it crossed 63 for the first time in many
The general list felt the influence, and, except
for Cotton Oil and tbe coal storks, everything
made a material improvement. Later, bow
ever, this story was denied from Chicago, and
thereafter contradictory telegrams were re
ceived throughout the day, which checked tho
advancing tendency. The bears then returned
to tbe attack with vigor, and, aided by the ad
vance in money to 10 per cent, they brought
about material declines in the coalers 'and
wiped out about all of the forenoon's Improve
ment in the general list. St. Paul and Burling
ton both reported very flattering earnings, but
this seemed to bave little effect upon them or
their Kindred shares. The ono ieally strong
spot in the market was Sugar Refineries, which
almost steadily appreciated wnen the Tegular
list was weak, and finally scored a handsome
advance, closing at its best figure. The Van
derbllts were strong ana Lake Shore crossed
107, but as a rnle the market was quiet and
featureless within the narrowest limits. Tbe
opening was strong at advances which extend
ed to per cent, and, led by Union Pacific and
Sugar, the list rose from to 1 per cent fur
ther daring tbe first hours. Cotton was weak,
and was soon joined by the coalers, which had
the effect of creating a partial reaction in tbe
rest of the list, which, however, was recovered
before noon. A general reaction followed and
prices moved np and down within narrow lim
its for tbe rest of tho afternoon, but in the last
hour Sugar developed, tbe most pronounced
strength, which helped tbe regular list up a
trifle, and the market finally closed quiet and
firm, generally at a shade bettor than last
night's prices. Sugar Bcored an advance of 3
per cent, but tbe only other material chango
wasa decline of 1 pcrcentJn Jersey Central.
The sales of railroad bonds were 61,310,000 to
day, and though tbe Ft. Worth and Denver
firsts, the San Antonio and A pass 6s of 1883
and the Kansas and Texas 7s were most active,
their transactions were not specially large.
Tl-e market was generally steady, and the final
change show few important fluctuations.
Tho -PojI' financial article says: All the
forenoon the market was agitated with re
peated assertions and denials by telegraph from
Chicago ot tbe alleged purchase of the control
of the Chicago and-Alton by .somebody for the
purpose of bringing it Into harmonious opera-
O.8. &81g. Co. .-..
WKBtlnvhrniM A H I !rt
tion'with the Union Pacific and Northwestern,
and also repeated assertions and denials by
telegraph from Chicago that if this alliance
was perfected the Burlington, the Rock
Island and the St. Paul would immediately
withdraw from the Presidents' Association and
declare war against the Union Pacific, North
western and Alton. So far as these dispatches
had any effect on the market It was in tbe di
rection of higher prices. Tbe majority of peo
ple already believe the Presidents' Association
is a failure, and that if It was broken up the
objects which were Bought in its formation
would bo better accomplished by some form of
alliance or co-operative management between
all the roads embraced in certain sections of
the country upon some such idea as trackage
for all companies over all the lines.
After 12 o'clock an official denial (purporting
to come from President Blackstone) of any
sale of a controlling interest in Chicago and
Alton was telegraphed from Chicago. Tbe
only effect this had was to check the trading in
tbe Grangers, though it had no apparent effect
upon prices. In tbe afternoon railroad stocks
were unsettled in consequence of conflicting
reports in regard to tbe condition of things
among the Chicago roads, as regards tbe Inter
State Association and also in regard to there
ported coalition of the Chicago and Alton with
the Northwestern and Union Pacific, and up to
2.30 o'clock the majority were a small fraction
lower than at 12 o'clock. The market closed
steady at a little above the lowest prices.
Governments dull and steady.
State bonds dull but firm.

Canandaigua, N. T., October 30.
Last April Alfred Hudson, an Englishman,
in company with three of his country
men, came to this country upon the
advice of a friend, John Stokes, of
Lyons, "Wayne county. Hudson went to
work at $16 a month on the farm of Edward
Hill, near Lyons. He was sober and indus
trious, and apparently contented with his
lot On Sunday evening, August 19, he
went to his room after returning from a visit
to Stokes in the village, and nothing has
been seen of him since. Over 50 wages
was doe him. Hudson's friends at first
thought that he bad gone to Kansas, where
he had friends, or had returned to England.
Inquiry showed that both surmises had
been wrong.
There is a Mrs. Hurter, at Lock Berlin,
not tar from Lyons, who professes to be a
fortune teller. One day she nut two ot
Hudson's friends, and told them that they
had lost a friend. He had been murdered,
she said. She described Hudson accurately
and conclnded: "You'll find his old cloihes
and other belongings secreted in a shed near
a stream of water." The next day Hud
son's satchel and clothes were found in an
old abandoned shed on the banks of the
Canandaigua outlet, near Lyons. Hud
son's friends then took their story to tbe
police, who are npw trying to find out how
Mrs, Hurter got her information.

German cheeses, which took an upward turn
a week or two ago, have quieted down. Manu

a lull in trade. New York and Ohio cheese Is
steady at quotations. Choice eggs are still

The demand tor oak lumber has for some
time been ahead of supply. The reason for this
has been low rivers and tbe inability of rail
marin tn rfn tha work reo nired. Heavy ash is
also unusually scarce. The effect of the scarcity
has been a sunening oi prices, -uaas nave ad
vanced 10 per cent in tbe past 30 days. Yellow
pine is also-a shade higher. Xhe general move
ment of lumber is more active than a week ago,
and frem now till the cold weather, there will,
no doubt be a rush to fill orders.
