SLEEP OF THE BRAVE.
How sleep the brave, who sink to rest,
By all their country's wishes blessed!
"When spring, with dewy fingers cold.
Returns to deck their hallowed mold,
She there shall dress a sweeter sod
Than Fancy's feet have ever trod.
By fairy hands their knell is rung;
By forms un6een their dirge is sung;
There Honor comes, a pilgrim gray.
To bless the turf that wraps their day;
And Freedom shall awhile repair.
To dwell a weeping hermit there.
THE fair of Post 151 at Salisbury Hall,
Southside, continues to boom. Some ex
cellent entertainments are .being presented.
On Friday evening Comrade D. A. Jones
recited "The Soldier Tramp," in character.
His makeup was excellent, and his imita
tion was greeted with uproarious applause
by the audience. Such a hit did Comrade
Jones make that his audience would not be
quiet until he hid given another recitation.
He gave as the second '"The Veteran,"
which was appreciated as much as the first
He was rewarded with a large, beautiful
bouquet. The ladies played a joke on him by
presentinc him with a large hat-box in which
was a very small hat, which Comrade Jones
will never be able to wear.

THE most interesting visitor at the Central
Board rooms yesterday afternoon was Mr.
Ernst Lythcke, formerly a Government mis
sionary agent of tbe island of Spitsbergen, He
says tbe Esquimaux have advanced wonder
fully in education in general since 1840. His
talk gives a very different impression of tbe
Esquimaux than that received from novels and
seekers of the north pole. The educational
law of the country is that a child shall enter
school at 6 and finish the course prescribed at
11, but if tbe pupils shall not hare finished tbe
course at that age tbey must continue
until they imbibe the required amount
of knowledge, and for that reason there is now
an Esquimaux woman 101 years old who can be
still considered a giddy school girl, as she is
still following tbe educational course laid down
by the law. Her intellect it of c-.nrse, too
dwarfed to study what is required of her, but
she is so anxious she still keeps on as a pupil.
If a pupil misses school he is fined 50 cents for
each day missed. He says tbe average age of
the Esquimaux is 149 years. Mr. Lythcke says
that Spitsbergen has a bank of its own in Den
mark, and owns its own vessels on the ocean.
He has taught in China and many other for
eign countries, and he says he would sooner
educate 20 Esquimaux than 2 Chinamen.

THE BOSTON SCHEME
For a Market House on the Allegheny
Indorsed by High Authority.
LOCAL 8PECULAT0BS PINCHED.
Dwelling Houses Built in Pittsburg as
Cheaply as Anywhere Else.
AH0YJ2MEKT IH THE P0IHT DISTRICT
Hon. David KirK indorses the Boston
gentleman's scheme for building a market
house on the Allegheny river, as presented
in The Dispatch a few days ago, Mr.
Kirk said yesterday: "Itis coming to that.
Land in the heart of the cities is already
too valuable to be wasted. The market
houses occupy much space that should be
devoted to other purposes. A. market
house on the river, as proposed, would
afford tbe necessary relief.
"I think the scheme is entirely feasible.
The cost would not be great. Bonds issued
to pay for the work would command a
premium, and could be paid off with money
received for rents and other market privileges.
Such a building would be a great advertise
ment for Pittsburg."
The oil crowd bad good reason yesterday for
taking more interest in the New York stock
quotations than in the commodity to which
they are supposed to be wedded. It is reported
that a good many -of them lost heavily on the
break in the Cotton Oil and Lead Trusts.
It is also strongly hinted that quite a number
of Pittsburg speculators not connected with
the Exchange dropped large amounts on the
same delusive securities. The child immortal

until it burnt its finger, Then it kept at asaf e
A lot 60 feet front on tbe corner of Penn and
Collins avenues was sold on Friday of last week
for $50,000. Its location in the business center
of East Liberty, where good sites are scarce,

nearly $900 a foot. It is understood the pur
chaser will erect a fine business house on the
In answer to the assertion frequently made
that it costs mora to build a house in Pittsburg
than in Philadelphia or Chicago, a well-posted
gentleman remarked yesterday: "I know from
my own experience and observation that bouses
built in Pittsburg for sale are more substantial,
have larger rooms and more conveniences than
those of tbe same class in any other city which
I have visited, and particularly Philadelphia
and Chicago, from vjbich we bear so much
boasting of low-priced bujldlngs. Tbey also, as
a rule, occupy more ground, which gives them
"Bearing these facts in mind, it is easily seen
that Pittsburg houses are as cheap at the prices
asked for them as those in the places indicated.
A majority of the houses now on the market
are offered at prices very little above actual
cost some at cost the profit being made on
A Pittsburg gentleman just returned from a
visit to Kansas City, said Yesterday that real
estate there is advancing so rapidly that noth
ing but a cabls car can keep np with it, so they
have built 60 miles or more of cable lines in
that city. The gentleman was so lavorably im
pressed with the appearance of the place with
its business bustle so like Pittsburg that be
thinks its destiny is to become one of the great
cities of the country.
Quite a number of old-time Pittsburgers are
in business there.
The Equitable Loan Association, composed
of 50 well-known business men, has purchased
a tract of land near Fleming station,-on the

it paid $21,600. A brief notice of this transac

it of most interest was not divulged until yes
terday. The intention of the association is to
lay the property out in large lots, with wide
streets, lawns, etc
To secure low rates on building material for
35 or 30 houses, to be commenced at once, con
tracts for supplies and buildings will be let in a
lump. This will be a departure from the usual
practice in this city, and is the same as tire
Philadelphia system. A few of the lots will be
sold to outsiders and the proceeds applied to
tbe improvement of tbe rest of the property.
It will be called Park View Place.
Young America should begin the study of tbe
Spanish language as soon as possible. Our

ity of its inhabitants speak Spanish, and it pre
dominates in tho courts and schools and with

There has been within a week or two a

There was nothing peculiar in business condi
tions in Pittsburg last week. The iron market
was less excited, but active and firm. Money
was plenty at 67 per cent, with a certainty of
continued ease during the remainder of the
year. There was a liberal movement of all the
staple products, with values about steady. Real
estate developed considerable activity, and a
number of important transactions were con
cluded. There was a good inquiry for and a
large number of sales of small properties.
In local securities the break in Philadelphia
Gas was the feature of chief interest. It re
covered most of the loss and closed steady. Pe

It reached the highest price recorded for nearly

Tbe following was wired John M. Oakley &
Co., from New York: "Money is dear, but it
can be had on good collaterals at a price. The
banking money lending fraternity discriminate
against trusts, and the lower tbey go naturally
the less they are inclined to carry them except
for tbe best houses. Losses in cotton oil have
been heavy and have not been confined to out
siders.. As one gentleman puts it: The rams
as wellja the lambs were fleeced.' It looks as
if thejgp tigers themselves had been unduly
hop&H5a that the complications and ramifi
cations of the business bad been so great as to
disable tbe managers from fully comprehend
ing what tbe final figures would really show.
"Tbe item of bills receivable of over $i000,
000, with something over $3,000,000 of offsets,

.THE TRUSTS SHAKEN.
Benrs Contlnae Their Demonstrations
Against Them A Lower Level
Reached Dllsaonrl Paciflo Also
Raided- Gains and Losses
New Yoek, November 1 The stock market
was fairly active to-day, with the trusts less
prominent in the trading, though, with the ex
ception of Missouri Pacific, there was no real
activity in the railroad list. There was consid
erable anxiety over tbe bank statement, and
before its issue opinions differed as to its com
plexion, aud the disposition was to await its
publication. Tbe bears, in tbe meantime, made
another demonstration against the trusts, and
both Cotton Oil and Lead were knocked, down
below the lowest figures of yesterday.
Anomer weak spot n -tno marxet was
Missouri Pacific, which, with Chicago Gas
Trust, failed to recover with the rest of tbe
market. The traders were Inclined to work
for a' rally, but the bears continued to hammer
the list and after a steady opening tbe pressure
upon the three trusts and Missouri Pacific,
which caused declines in those stocks from 1
to 2 per cent, was felt in the rest of the mar
ket, and sympathetic losses of small tractions
were sustained. A material rally" then began,
which in many cases brought prices again to
and above the level of the opening figures.
The pressure upon Missouri Pacific was not
relieved, however, ana that stock remained at
its worst, which afterward affected tbe general
list, and the market finally closed active and
weak generally at -fractional losees from the
opening prices. The'flnal changes are. fairly
well divided between gains and losses, and are
for small fractions in most cases, tbe only im
portant ones being losses of 1 in Missouri Pa
ciflo and li in Chicago Gas.
Railroad bonds were comparatively active,
the sales of all issnes for the two honrs reach
ing 8726,000. Tbe market failed to develop any
feature of interest. Sales of bonds for the
week, 16,861,000, against (6,837,000 last week.
