THUK3DAT, October 31, 18S3. J
j Medium and lower grades of yellow pine
. - ilumber are a shade higher, bnt fine grades
- are unchanged. The inference from this is
that more common stuff than usual is going
5 into the bouses that are being erected this
r. season. A leading lumberman said to-day:
"We are selling medium grades ot yellow
pine 52 a thousand higher than last spring,
bnt uppers are unchanged."
The supply of oak lumber and seasoned
hemlock has not for months past been up to
the demand. One reason tor the scarcitv
has been the diffiulty of securing railroad
Tbo Effect of It.
This along with low waters and the con
sequent impossibility of shipping by river,
has had the efiect of reducing supplies in
many lumber lines to the minimum point. Now
that the river is up there is a partial, but not
full relief. The first towboat of the season
landed with a cargo of lumber from the
Kanawha yesterday, and brought a quantity of
stuff equal to the capacity of six railroad
trains. Annmber of other tows are on the way.
It has been fully demonstrated the past few
. months that the railroads are not capable of
doing the business required by this one depart
ment of trade. .
Sawmills are working up to their full ca
pacity in tbe Michigan lumber region, and it is
next to -impossible to have special orders
placed. As the season draws near its end the
difficulty increases. Builders who bare not
, laid in their supplies will be compelled from
now on to take unseasoned hemlock. Dry oak
and beary ash are also very hard to get.
Liberty TJve Stock.
With returns for the week all in it appears
that local receipts' of cattle were 90 head less
this week than last, and through receipts 960
f head more. The run of export cattle in our
local supplies was larger in proportion to the
total than usual.
Tbe best price obtained was H 50, and only a
very few loads reached this rijrure. Prime
beeves broucbt better prices in Chicago than
in Pittsburg this week, the outside price- at tbe
former place being $5 1U against S4 50 here.
This is explained by the fact that stock at Chi
cago in carload lots is better selected and much
.higher in quality than are offered here.
Here only a few in a load are strictly prime.
In Chicago, the very best are to be had by tbo
carload, and for export purposes are cheaper at
50c per cwt more tban such as are offered of
late at East Liberty as prime cattle.
With a Tery light run of sheep being 4.000
head less than last week or the week before
actire markets were confidently looked for;
but the expectations failed to materialize.
Borne 12 loads were dnmced into the Liberty
yards this morning from Chicago, with prices
limited. In case of their not bringing the
stipulated price they were to be sent on to the
seaboard. At last reports there were no buy
ers ready to pav tbe price, and the probability
is that this stock has gone further to fare no
It will be seen from the accompanying re
port that receipts of bogs w ere 1,MX head short
of last week. Though supply was lighter de
mand did not improve. Prices are now 30c to
40c below the highest price reached Tn tbe
eatly part ot tbe month. At Chicago to-day the
outside price is 54 05, a drop of 5c from yester
day. The regulars, who buy for packing pur
poses, appear to be holding off in expectation
of lower prices.

Chicago Wheat Trade was fair. There
were no new features presented, and operators
did not manifest any special desire to enter
into extensive operations either on one side or
the other. Tbe market opened about the same
as It closed yesterday, then eased off about Ho,
improved some, ruling quite strong, and ad
vanced lc, and closed steady and about a
higher for December and a higher for May
European advices were indicative of a trifle
steadier feeling. Some export Inquiry existed,
and New York reported three boatloads taken
and freight room engaged for six loads to go to
Glasgow. The receipts in. the Northwest con
tinue large. Cloudy weather was reported
pretty much all over the country, and rain in
Borao sections. Detroit wired that the deliv
eries of wheat in tho winter wheat belt were
Tery light. There was no decided action to the
market until very late in the session, when
prices were advanced to outside range.
Corn Another day of activity -was witnessed
in tuis market, wun toe leeitng generally quite
strong, though at times a little unsettled. A
still further advance was recorded on the near
figures, though extreme prices were not main
tained. The influences on the market were
much tbe same as yesterday, namely, the small
receipts, active shipping demand and unsettled
weather, which had a tendency to make shorts
on tbe near deliveries rather nervous. The
market opened a shade higher than yesterday's
closing quotations, was firm, and advanced "c,
shippers making liberal purchases of Novem
ber, as also a prominent local trader. A reac
tion followed the early 'advance, due to free
selling of May by several large local operators,
and prices declined Kc, recovered the decline,
eased off some and closed a shade higher than
Oats An active business was transacted and
a higher range of prices recorded, bnt outside
figures were not maintained. The feeling moat
of the session was firm, due to continued wet
andcloudv weather and a sharn decline in ar
rivals. A good miscellaneous demand existed,
and shorts were the chief buyers. Offerings
were free at an advance of Jc over yesterday's
closing prices for May, and cansed a recession
of c, but later the market again became firm
er ana prices rallied Jc
Mess pork Rather mere life was manifested
in this market, and speculative trading was
quite actire, though almost exclusively in No
vember and January deliveries. Free offerings
early encouraged a little buying from tbe short
interest, and prices were -advanced to outside
figures. At tbe improvement there was some
desire to realize, which caused a decidedly
weaker feeling, especiallv for January delivery,
and prices receded again. Trading in October
delivery was moderate tbe bnying being
credited to the long interest prices ruling
30660c higher early and then declining 75S0c,
and closing weak.
Lard The market attracted very little at
tention, and trading was comparatively light.
Prices ruled 2K5c lower on the deferred de
liveries while October ruled strong at 6570c

Conspicuous Advances Scored in England,

HOW TO'PDT OUT LUMBER TAKD FIRES
Now and then a passer-by is heard criti
cising tbe new Government building. An
amateur architect, in replying to these ob
jectors, remarked yesterday evening: "Those
men don't know what they are talking
about. They have no eyes for symmetry
and proportion. In its entirety tbe Govern
ment building will present a beautiful ap
pearance. "Its architecture is composite, but differ
ent orders are so harmoniously blended as
to produce an almost perfect whole. There
are no incongruities about it, butit is chaste
and symmetrical from top to bottom. It will
be a credit to the Government as well as to the
The iron market is less excited than last
week, but continues firm and active. There is
no visible weakness, but consumers show a
disposition to wait until winter prices are estab
lished. That they will be no lower Is almost
certain: that they will go higher is prob
able. The advance in coke to SI 75 a ton means
at least 50 cents more for pig, with which all
descriptions of iron will sympathize more or
less, bnt to just what extent cannot be fore
seen. It Is not desirable, in the opinion of
many manufacturers, that values should go
much, if any higher, for the reason that it
would open the way for foreicn competition.
Rials are firm at $32 50 to S33 50. Sales have
been made at the latter figure. Nails are
steady at the S2 card. There has been no
change in wrought iron pipe since the rec:nt
meeting of manufacturers, at which the pres
ent discounts were reaffirmed. The season is
about over for pipe laying, and very little new
business Is being placed. Foundries are loath
to quote for future delivery, not knowing where
pig iron will land.
The mills are all bnsy on orders, and tbey are
receiving all that are offered, but will not
guarantee quick delivery. A strong and
healtby feature of the market is the projection
of new railroads, bridges and other works
which will call for large amounts of iron and
In England a rapidly advancing iron market
is the characteristic of greatest importance.
Conspicuous advances have been made during
the past week at nearly all the centers of the
iron trade in Great Britain toward tbe estab
lishment of more remunerative prices. Pig
Iron warrants at Glasgow have passed 60s. a ton
a price which a month ago no one expected
they wonld attain, ana they are now 123. above
their former minimum before tbe recent rises
began. The present price indeed is higher than
any which has existed since 1SS2.
It is also nearly certain that in the future
iron prices will show an even more rapid rate
of increase than that which tbey have lately
maintained. As to tbe average selling prices
ascertained m connection with the wages
boards of tne North ot England and the Mid
lands, it may be stated that ironmasters have,
during the whole period of the revival, been
executing contrtcts which were booked at con
siderably less tban current rates. At a meet
ing at Wolverhampton last week of the Mid
laud Iron and Steel Wages' Board, one of the
iron masters stated that he should not be sur
prised to see the average selling price of iron
for September and October show an increase
over the previous two months of as mnch as
from 10s. to 12s. per ton.
The increasing cost of raw materials continues
to be a factor with which iron and steel masters
have seriously to grapple. In Yorkshire, Der
byshire, Staffordshire, and many other districts,
miners have within the past few days received
the second 5 per cent advance in wages to mtke
np the 10 per cent advance, which was promised
them early in ths summer. Asa consequence,
prices of iron works coal have been advanced
in Yorkshire by 6d, and 6d, per ton, and in
Staffordshire by Is.
Best coke for steel melting is 4s. per ton
higher for Yorkshire qualities than in October,
1888, and Derbyshire and Dnrham cokes are
similarly advanced. These additions to tbe
costof production fnrnlsh very real justification
for the advances which have been, and are still
being, declared in manufactured iron and steel.
Ever- one who has witnessed a pile of dry
lumber on fire knows how futile are all efforts
to extinguish it. This has been demonstrated
more than once In Pittsburg. Tbe only recourse
Is to cover the adjacent piles with woolen blank
ets, hang a line of blankets alongtbe alley-ways
near the burning pile or piles and to keep the
blankets thoroughly saturated with water. By
this means a recent fire in a large lumber yard at
Mannee, Wis., was confined to a small area.
Tbe account of this fire is so interesting and
contains so mnch that may prove valuable to
local lumber dealers, that It is appended:
"Here was a fire set by an incendiary be
tween two piles of bone-dry lumber in the very
heart of a closely-piled yard, containing about
20,000,000 feet. Tbe hour was 11 o'clock at
night, and tbe location nearly half a mile from
the homes of the villagers and millmen. The
fact that the yard was not destroyed is not a
miracle, but rather ft was an exhibition of the
best-handled fire on record. The employes of
the concern seemed to know jnst what to do in
such an emergency. Scores of camp blankets
were wet and covered over the surrounding
piles of lumber, and even between tbe piles
adjoining the two that were ablaze. They
quickly bad the mill hose and fire-pump in
readiness, but no effort was made to extin
guish the fire, but rather to keen the outside
of the two piles thoroughly saturated with
"The result was that the two piles in ques
tion, which, when dlscevered, were a blazing
chaldron of fire, was the only lumber injured
about the yard. The ends and sides of adjoin
ing piles were not even scorched. The expe
dient of wet blankets may not be new to every
one In handling fires, but it probably is to
many, and It is well worth making a mental
note ot, as it was undoubtedly the only pos
sible expedient that would have saved tbe im
mense Marinee plant from entire destruc
tion." BEEK1N6 ITS XE7EL.

A HONTITS BfcCORD.
What (be Local Banks Are Doing Clearing-
The feature of the local monetary situation
yesterday was a decrease in the checking ac
count, as shown by the exchanges. The cause
of this was attributed to a falling off in de
posits, resulting from iret weather. Many of
the largest depositors are old and rheumatic,
and will not leave their comfortable homes
when "the skies are melting in tenderness."
The demand tor funds was moderate, and rates
were unchanged. Pittsburg still has money
enough for itself and considerable to spare.
All acceptable naper is readily cashed.
Tbe exchanges were 11,922,501 94 and the
baltnces S231,813 67. For the month the ex
changes were 61,210,765 60, balances, 9,510,
Concerning the apprehension abont money.
President J. Edward Simmons, of the Fourth
National Bank, New York, said yesterday:
"Money is active, but by no means stringent
and funds are in very plentiful supply at from.
6 to 7 per cent. I fully expect to see a healthy
and natural money market for the rest of the
year, but according to my judgment there will
be no tringency. , Neither merchants nor bank
ers will find any difficulty in getting accommo
dation. On the contrary, money will be plenti
ful enough tor legitimate purposes, but there
is no reason to believe that it will be as cheap
as it has been in the past. The cotton crop wilt
soon begin to move, and this will cause a re
flux movement The situation is healthy
enough, no matter what the croakers may

News from the Washington field was to this
effect: The result of operations here during the
past month is rather discouraging. A number
of wells have been drilled in tbe south and
southwest the-past month and but two were
good ones, tbe rest being dry. The pool which
starts at the Johnston-well and extends north
through the Achlson gusher is gradually being
defined; tbe only course being left is to go dl
rectl v south of this place. Gibson it Co.'s well,
on tbe Greer lot,'has been drilled in tbe sand.
The William Smith well, on the Trinity
grounds, struck a streak yesterday, and since
then has made several small flows. Oilmen
report that the Hamilton well will be small.

Nkw Yokk, October 81. The stock market
to-day was quiet for the regular list, but active
for the trusts, and, while the former presented
a firm front, decide'd weakness prevailed among
the latter. Cotton Oil was the great feature of
tbe day, and, while the traders were the princi
pal sellers early in the day, a well-known firm
began to sell and was followed by others, which
gave the room tbe impression that some large
interest was unloading, and there was a rush to
sell from all portions of the room, and the mar
ket was taken away from wonld-be sellers be
fore their offers could be heard.
Considerable excitement Attended thn deal.
ings in the stock, and for a time there was little
else traded In, while various rumors sprang
into existence, chief among which was one that,
the annual report to be issned soon wonld show
about $1,000,000 less earned during tbe past
year than generally expected. Others related
to tronble In tbe matter of tho corporation
scheme, selling by a large interest, and the
forcing of a large block, of tbe stock upon the
market by tigbt money, but wliilo many of
these were contradicted, others were leffwith
out an answer.
Tho stock opened at VM against 41 Ji last
evening, and was forced off bv tbe sales of tho
traders to about 40, from which It had a slight
recovery. The real selling of the day then be
gan and its price was soon dropped to 38, but
there was only a momentary halt and later it
dropped to 3 the lowest of the year. The
denials of the rumors made themselves felt at
this point, but the selling seemed to have ex
hausted itself and la material rally occurred,
bringing it np to 3 while the close was made
at 38. Of the other trusts Lead was quiet and
comparatively well held, but Sugar weakened
and declined to 71K, rallying fractionally at the
Among the listed stocks there was no move
ment of importance except the sharp advance
of nearly 4 per cent in Tennessee Coal in tne
forenoon and smaller gains In Denver, Texas
and Ft. Worth, and a decline in Lake Erie and
Western preferred. The trading in the regu
lar list was confined almost entirely to tbe
traders, and the fluctuations with the few ex
ceptions noted were for the smallest fractions,
and while there was a generalupward tendency
exhibited it was held in check by the weakness
in the trusts.
Tbe close was generally dull bnt firm at close
to the opening prices. For the first time in
many months the transactions in listed stocks
fell below those in the unlisted department,
and while the former aggregated only 140,408
shares the latter reached 144,304, of which Cot
ton Oil furnished 114.065. Of the stocks of tbe
regular list only four or five reached five
figures. Advances are in a majority this even
ing, but the final gain of 3 per cent in Ten
nessee coal is the onlv one of importance,
while Cotton Oil is down 3 and Sugar 1.
The railroad bond market was quiet to dull
to-day, tbe sales of all issues reaching only
$1,072,000, of which the Gulf. Colorado and
Santa Fe 6s furnished S14Z000. Tbe market
, was without general feature.
xne votvi financial article says: Xbe move
ments of tbe prices of tbe various groups of
stocks in the last week are worth considering
as a clear index of the market tc-dav. It is a
noticeable fact that notwithstanding all the
rumors and telegraphic reports from Chicago
inisnueu, or ac least expected, to innuence tne
prices of the Granger stocks, they are almost
unchanged, and at 12 o'clock to-day North
western, Burlington, Rock Island, St. Paul and
Atchison were none of them over away from
their prices at 12 o'clock on Thursday, tbe 24tb,
but Missouri Pacific, Union Pacific, Northern
Pacific preferred, Lake Shore and Canada
Southern were all from 11 higher, Michl-
fan Central 4Vi higher and Denver, Texas and
ort Worth 3K higher. On the other hand,
Jersey Central, Lackawanna and Delaware and
Hudson were all from Kl per cent lower, and
The circumstances which are causing the
different tendencies ot prices of the different
groups are entirely separate and distinct from
tbe question of the money market, which is no
longer an important factor in the stock market.
In the territory west of Chicago it is apparent
that a new experiment is abont to be tried In
the practical consolidation of the operation of
heretofore antagonistic lines, and In view of
this speculation in the Granger stocks waits
for the results. The Vanderbilt Eastern lines,
however, will unquestionably be benefited, and
as they are all doing remarkably well anyhow,
Europe invests in tbem. Those who profess to
know something of tbe character of the con
tract made between the Union Pacific and the
Northwestern understand that it will result in
the operation of the two systems in tbe same
I manner as tbe New York Central and the Lake
onore are operaiea. xuis is ine joint nse ox

The Supposed Tascott Will Serve a Term
Upon Bis Own Account.
'Philadelphia, October 31. Albert
Sutherland, the young criminal who re
cently gained considerable notoriety be
cause of his resemblance to Tasoott, the
murderer of Millionaire Snell, of Chicago,
was given another bearing in a magistrate's
court to-day on charges of passing forged
checks for various amounts on trades
men in this city. J. E. "Wood, gen
eral passenger agent of the Penn
sylvania Eailroad Company, was tbe
principal witness against him, four
checks bearing that gentleman's name hav
ing been passed fay Sutherland. The court
room was packed to suffocation with curi
osity seekers anxious to catch a glimpse of
the criminal. The magistrate held Suther
land in $3,800 bail on five charges.
Word was received here to-day from
Buffalo that Sutherland is wanted in that
city ior passing forged checks, etc., and
Detective Wood says that information in
his possession leads him to believe that the
man is wanted in many other cities on the
same charge. The prisoner to-day told the
chief something of his family history. He
says his name is. Will A. Brown and he isn
son of James A. Brown, a Chicago rsilroad
masr. He says his father bad secured his
release from tbe Columbus penitentiary on
a pardon from Governor Foraker and sent
him West to look after some mining inter
ests. Thv young man soon tired of West

these first fruits of tbe Florida crop, the goods
being handled by Messrs. McGowan and Des

heavy as they have been for a week past, and
the downward drift has beeqarrested. Dairy
products present no new features. Creamery
bntter and everything in tbe choice line are
quiet. Trade is slower and volnme of goods
handled smaller this week than for a month
past. Eggs are very firm at quotations. Sup
ply of dressed poultry is scarcely np to demand
and prices are firmer. Bweet potatoes are very
firm at quotations. Grapes are growing scarce,
and their day will soon be over. Fancy apples
are looking np as grapes decline. Tbere Is an
active demand for nuts, giving evidence that
Halloween is here.
