FMDAT. November J, 18S9. I
Market basket materials have undergone
few changes in the past 'week. In vegetable
lines corn and Lima beans are practically
out for this season. Tomatoes still linger,
but their end is not far away, and tbose now
on the stalls are lower in quality and higher
in price than last Saturday. Betail dealers
of fruits and vegetables report a very quiet
-week's trade. In fruit lines grapes are still
to the front, bat prices hare advanced. Cali
fornia fruits are In better demand and their day
has fairly dawned. Florida oranges by the car
load pnt In tbeir first appearance for the season
Fowls and Game.
Poultry and game are steadily growing into
popular faror. Choice eggs are drifting higher,
and holiday prices have been asked and ob
tained within a few days by country people.
The crop of hen fruit and poultry In this vicin
ity is unusually short, and supplies in these
lines come chiefly from the West, where there
is plenty. Staple meats change not. Trade,
according. to 'reports of Diamond Market
butchers, is very slow. Prices are unchanged.
The consumer must pay the same old rates for
his fine roasts and tenderloin steakijnotwlth
standing the decline of live stock. They who
eat the fine cuts find no falling oif in meat
bills. If there was profit to the butcher when
he paid 6c and upward for steers, he should
hare a good thing now when he pays from 4c to
' 5c per pound.
Fish Rnd Oysters O. K. Again.
As to lake and ocean products there is now a
fair supply of herring and all Eastern fish.
White fish and large salmon are still short.
The first red snappers of the season, from
Florida, were on our stalls this week.
Oysters are held very firm at sources of sup
ply, and while our dealers are able now to se
cure all that are needed, Baltimore packers are
growing very firm in their views. From present
outlook an advance in prices cannot be far

Northwest says only about one-quarter of the
wheat has been marketed. It is claimed that
stocks at Minneapolis will not show as large an
increase as last week. Cable advices quoted
steady and firm markets. New York reported
10 boat loads of No. 1 Duluth sold for export to
the United Kingdom. Rain was. reported In
Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota
and Missouri, aud snow in Eansas and Ne

in Minnesota and Dakota were reported as
showing an increase of 6,000,000 bushels during

business was transacted in this market. The

more pressure to sell and prices receded 15

closed rather quiet.

market and trading was lighter than for several

THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, SATTJRDAT,
WANT SMALL HOUSES:
Statement of a Gentleman Who Sells
as Fast as He Can Build.
A GOOD PROSPECT FOE BEXT TEAR.
ConsetratiTe Tiewa in Eegard to the Val
ues of Local Keal Estate.
WESTERN FAEMERSFIXING UP A TRUST
As evidence of the great demand for small
houses, a gentleman who does considerable
building, said yesterday: "I have put up
quite a number of small houses this season
and have sold everyone of them sometimes
before they were finished. In some cases I
had not more than got the cellar started be
fore someone would come along and want to
buy the house. This fact should stir up
other builders, and I hope it will. It would
be next to impossible to glut the market.
"Outsiders mechanics and laborers of all
grades would flock herein large numbers If
they could buy or rent houses of a class suited
to theirmeans. But thev cannot, and therefore
stay away. This is a great drawback to the
growth of the city. A good deal has been done
this year to remedy this evil, and from what I
hear a great deal more will be done next year.
Here is a splendid opportunity for capitalists to
reap a golden harvest, such as comes but once
in a lifetime."
A few days ago the wheat growers of the
Mississippi Valley met at St. Louis for tbe
purpose of forming an organization to control
the prices of their farm products. A company
has been chartered under the name of the Fed
erated Farmers of the Mississippi Valley, with
an authorized capital of 520,000,000, and through
tbeir agency the "Western agriculturists hope
to be able to influence trade movements and
the course of prices. The President, in the
course of his address, said the convention had
met not for the purpose of denouncing trusts
and "combines," bnt to meet the Issue of new
systems and conditions in trade. If farmers
would organize like, manufacturers, to control
production and regulate the supply in the
public market, they could, in common with all
other producers, set the price on their own
products irrespective of overproduction.
The most striking' feature of this address is
its indication of the growth of a new sentiment
among agriculturists respecting trade organ
izations and combinations. It would appear
from this that the popular feeling against
trusts and combinations, which but a short
time since seemed to be sweeping along like a
resistless current, is losing in strength.
From information obtained from leading
firms engaged In handling real estate it can be
said that there is very little disposition on the
part of ewners who desire to realize to boom
prices. While they very naturally want all
they can get, they are far-seeing enough to
realize that exorbitant demands wonld drive
buyers out of tbe field. Owners are, therefore,
with few exceptions, disposed to be reasonable,
in proof of which it may be stated that several
properties withdrawn from sale a few weeks
ago for higher prices are again on the market
at the original figure. It is the general convic
tion that property in and around Pittsburg is
high enough for the present, and any attempt
at enhancement wonld, except, perhaps, in
special cases outside of the common demand,
be detrimental to all concerned. In real estate,
as In other things, fair prices stimulate busi
ness. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company is
making experiments with a fire-proof railway
car. The distinctive feature of the car is that
it is all iron or steeL The roof, sides and ends
of the car are made of boiler-plate riveted
together. The car is somewhat in the shape of
a horseshoe, the round part being tbe top. In
the bottom are several steel girders placed in
cement, much the same as in Pullman cars
Along tho sides is an array of windows, pre
cisely similar to those of ordinary passenger
The top of the car is destitute of heavy roof
and ventilating arrangements that are seen on
ordinary cars. It is said that ventilation is
secured by pumping air into tbe car through
pipes. These pipes in winter are arranged so
as to furnish warm air. It is claimed that it
will not burn, will last forever, and will not
telescope or break up in a collision,
It is stated that Jay Gould will soon make
public his plan for the reconstruction of tbe
Manhattan system of elevated railroads in New
York City. According the latest Information
on tbe subject, the directors of the company
have already resolved to place $20,000,000 in a
shape available for the contemplated work,
which involves an enlargement of stations,
terminals and the entire equipment on the
Third, Sixth and Ninth avenue routes.
Tbe city authorities are expected to make
large concessions of space for these improved
facilties. Seven cars will constitute a train,
and locomotives already ordered will have a
correspondingly increased power. The fixed
charges will amount to over S800.000, which tbe
increased earning capacity of the road, it is as
sumed, will fully warrant.
An impression prevails that gold production
will develop more rapidly henceforward than
that of silver, bnt there is no abatement per
ceptible in tbe production of tbe latter in
America, while in New South Wales and
South Australia it increases rapidly. Thus,
during the first six months of the present year
the Broken Hill Proprietary Company's mine
in New South Wales turned out 2,677,686
ounces of silver, against 2,290,455 during the
preceding six months, and 1,633,757" from Jan
uary I to July 1, 18SS. The mine produced dur
ing the last three years no less than 9,756,977
ounces of silver.
Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was white as
snow; it strayed away one summer day where
iambs should never go. Then Mary sat her
down and tears streamed from her eyes; she
never found the lamb "because she did not ad
vertise And Mary had a brother John, who
kept a village store; he sat down and smoked
his pipe and watched the open door. And as
the people passed along and did not stop to
buy, John still sat down and smoked bis pipe
and blinked bis sleepy eye: And so the Sheriff
closed him out, but still be lingered near; and
Mary came to drop a sympathizing tear. "How
is it, sister, that "these otber merchants here
sell all tbeir goods, and thrive from year to
yeart" Remembering now her own bad luck,
the little maid rtplies: "These other fellows
get there, John, because they advertise"
RAIDERS AT WORK.
They Slake Another Attack on Philadelphia
Gai Company Stock.
The stock call yesterday morning ended
without a ; transaction of any kind, bnt it wis
interesting from the fact that the Philadelphia
Gas raiders renewed their attack op tbe stock
by offering ten share lots at' 33Ji against sales
at 34 the previous day, but as no one seemed to
care for the little jags, the raiders failed in
their purpose of using the ghost of the old
scare to produce another panic, so .they could
loadupbnthellump. The absence of blocks
of any size from the offerings revealed very
clearly the nature of the game that was heing
There was a firmer feeling in tbe stock in tbe
afternoon, when sales were made at 3 but it
could not have been bought in quantities nn.
under 33 or 34. The moinlng raid, it is under
stood, was engineered by a few speculators
who hold puts at about SO. and will lose money
unless they succeed in gettiog the. price below
Electric was the only other otber active
stock! It sold at a slight concession. The in
active list showed no material changes from
tbe quotations of the previous day. The close
was at about the best figures. Bids, offers and,

New York, November Lln.the stock mar
ket to-day the Tresis were the all-absorbing
feature, and Cotton Oil in particular attracted
an lnterestwhich threw ail other stocks, and
especially tbe railroad shares, into the shade.
Out of a total of 372,466 shares of stock traded
in on the New York Stock Exchange to-day
the unlisted department furnished 205.200 and
tbe regular list only 167,260, while Cotton Oil
alone contributed 129,850 shares of business.
This difference was especially noticeable in tbe
first hourwhen the sales of tbe unlisted stocks
were in the proportion of 3 to 1 of tbe railroad
stocks, and of Cotton Oil 50,000 shares changed
hands in tbe first bait hour's business. The
fact thatto-dav "was a holiday in London ac
counted tor ir portion of this discrepancy, but
the rumorsin regard to Cottqotoil far more.

tended, and It developed the truth of the story
that the earnings have fallen about $1,080,009
Bhort of the estimates given out, and have
reached only $1,660,0001 Tbe utterances of
General Thomas also to the effect that tbe
properties in the trust are worth about S12.000,
000 to $15,000,000, showing that the shares have
been selling far In exceis of tbeir worth, gave
an impetus to tbe lorther decline established.
The crowd in the stock at tbe opening this
morning was very large, and the announcement
tuat the three gentlemen selected to position
In the board bad refused to serve gave tbe im
pression that something must be wrong with
the trust, aud the selling assumed extremely
heavy proportions Immediately. Tbe bears
and traders were on hand, and pursued tbe
usual tactics of offering tbe stock down in ad
vance of the regular sellers, and numerons
stop orders beingreached tbe downward move
ment did not cease until 32 was touched, a
net loss of 5 'per cent from last evening's
The liquidation seemed to be completed for
the time being at that point and a rail j to 35
followed, but this was succeeded by a renewal
or the selling In the last hour, and it closed at
33. Lead Trust was attacked in sympathy
with Cotton Oil and forced off. to below 20,
which dislodged considerable long stock.
The trading in it was very large also, reach
ing 57,356 shares, but it was" overshadowed
by Cotton Oil. and its movements were
comparatively small. Sugar was. like the
raibroad list, inclined to strength In tbe
forenoon, and actually improved nearly 2
per cent, but felt the nressure at last, and all
oi the improvement was wiped out.
Railroad stocks, as long as they were left to
their natural bent, advanced slowly, though
the galns.were generally confined to fractions.
Tennessee Coal, however, reached 62 on its
early spurt, a gain of about 3 pec cent. This,
however, was afterward wiped out when the
traders and bears got time to turn their atten
tion to the stocks of the regular list, which
was about noon. Missouri Pacific was raided,
and its price was broken neariv 3 per cent, rol
lowed by Chicago Gas and tbe Grangers: The
other crroaDS ofstocks were almost neglected.

Union Pacific was also active, and after an

last evening. The news with a bearing upon
the values of railroad stock was generally, of a
favorable tenor, bnt had no effect against tbe
trading The list at the close was fairly
active and heavy to weak at about the lowest
prices of the day. The final changes show a

has been so heartily approved by tbe stock
holders and.endorsed by the" fact that the stock
is sought for at $110, tbat the directors. In ac
cordance with tne expressed acsire oi many oi
the stockholders, and with their own judgment
also, have decided to make no dividend at tbe
present time, but, instead, place an additional
$10,000 in the surplus, fund, making it $26,000.
and leave $7,462 26 in undivided profits. This
action, it is confidently believed, will benefit
tbe bank, give confidence to- depositors, and
enable the directors to declare a satisfactory
dividend at the close of next six months and
maintain it thereafter." The net gain for tbe
year and a half of the bank's existence, has
been $28,462 28.
