OFFERINGS OF CATTLE VERY MEAN
And Markets Dragged at a Sharp Decline
From Last Week.
SHEEP TERI DULL, AND HOGS STEADY
OrncE of Pittsburg Dispatch,
Wednesday. November 6, 18S9. J
Markets were very far from satisfactory,
either to buyer or seller. Quality of offer
ings was belovr average and markets drag
ged for everything offered with the exception
ot hogs, which had their tumble last week,
and are now fairly steady at the decline.
The run of cattle was about 130 loads,
against an equal number last week. Of
these received there were less than a dozen
loads of good cattle, and none that were
strictly prime. There were eight to ten loads
weighing 1,400 to 1,500 pounds of fair butch
ering stock, which ranged in price from H 10
(f4 30, the latter figure being the Highest
price paid by the car load.
Good Cm tic Go Enit.
There was not sufficient demand to absorb
this small lot of good cattle at these figures,
and a number were sent on to New York.
Said a. leading stockman: "The cattle of
fered at the yards this week were the meanest
for the number I have seen here any timo this
season. Shippers will not learn that this is a
very poor market for the coarse. rough, bony
stock that has been unloaded here this week."
Prices were off on these low grades from 15
10c on Monday and the dregs were closed out
to-day at!0gl5 below Monday's prices. Better
crades were 1015c lower than a week ago.
There were no export buyers on band.
In the offerings ere some 15 to 20 loads of
common stockers and feeders. The range lor
stockers was lc to 2c, one load having been
sold at the first figure, which was the lowest
this season. The range for feeders was S3 00 to
Slierp and Lambs.
Supply was much larger than last week, and
markets were very slow at lower prices. At
noon to-day there were a number of loads un
sold. Shippers who came ont even on this
week's consignments to East Liberty yards
were very lucky. It is the general view that
some have met with heavy losses. There was
no opening in Eastern markets, as advices
from there were unfavorable, and those .left
over, it is thought, can only be disposed of at
A few loads from Chicago must have en
tailed on the shipper a loss of nearly S60 to the
A Larce Run of Hogs.
The run was larger than last veek but mar
kets have ruled steady, and are stronger to-day
than at the Beginning of the week. The range
for the best Yorkers and Philadelphias is 4 00
Qi 25. Cooler weather has been favorable to
markets, giving a better tone to trade, and a
goodly number of country buyers were on hand
at the beginning of the week which had a
strengthening influence. Advices from Chi
cago .o one of our leading packers this morn
ing, are that with receipts there ot 23,000 hogs,
markets are oc off. making the outside pric e
there 54 10.

FBEDEltlCKTOTVir, Mo., November 6.
CnrroII Hicks and James Jordan, young
farmers living 20 miles south of here, had a
quarrel last week over the disappearance of
some timber. Hicks accused Jordan of
stealing, and Jordan called Hicks a liar.
They made arrangements to meet in a field
near the Hicks place and settle it yesterday.
Hicks appeared with a double barreled
shotgun and Jordan with a revolver. They
began shooting at each other when within CO
yards, and the shot did the most execution.
Jordan was killed at the second fire. Hicks
walked off unconcernedly to his home.
Three men witnessed the murder.

MARKETS BY WIRE.
A Moderate Movement In Whenf, With
Price nicber Thnn on Monday '
Pork Weak and Early Im
CmcA go There was a fair speculative trade
in wheat, but credited principally to local oper
ators. There was no special news to affect the
course ot the market, and local influences were
the controlling power. There was fair baying
early, a prominent local operator being repre
sented as having bought freely around S0c for
December. The offerings were rather light and
a strong feeling was developed in consequence.
Shorts were induced to cover, and possibly ap
prehended manipulation. There were weak
spots which it was claimed was due to some
realizing at the advance,but most of the session
the feeling was firm again and prices over clos
ing quotations of last Monday were recorded.
The opening was K65c higher, advanced 1c
more, then declined JXc advanced &Jc
and closed c higher for December and Jc
higher for May than last Monday. Cable ad
vices quoted wheat quiet and steady. A cable
gram was received placing the entire crop of
Southern Rnssia at 70 per cent less than last
year. The receipts in the Northwest continue
very heavy, and this was one of the weak
features ot the market. .
Corn ruled quiet the greater part of the ses
sion, trading being mainly local and fluctua
tions narrow. The feeling early was rather
easier due to fine weather, was firmer later,
when the cash market opened, there being a
good demand for all grades. The market opened
at about Monday's closing prices, changed but
little and closed a shade better than Monday.
In oats a steadier feelingdeveloped, but busi
ness was light with no Important features. A
largo operator bought May freely and advanced
prices K5c Later a weaker feeling pre
vailed and tue advance was lost.
In mess pork a moderate trade was reported.
Early the feeling was stronger and prices were
advanced "K12K", but later in the day the
market was weaker and the improvement was
In lard trading was comparatively light and
the feeling was easier. Prices ruled 57jc
lower, and the market closed quiet

A BOOM FOR CALIFORNIA AVENUE.
Twenty-Third Ward and Its Relation to
the Proposed Schenlej Park.
BUSINESS DRAWING MEN OP ABILITY
Among several rumors, all of them
emanating from good sources, whjch were
circulated on Fourth avenue, yesterday,
was one to the effect that a syndicate, of
whom Mr. F. Gwinner is one, had bought
11 or 12 acres of land in the Eleventh ward,
Allegheny, for which they paid ?50,000.
The purchase was made as a speculation.
W. A. Herron & Sons, who have charge of
the property, refused to furnish particulars
at present It is supposed that this deal has
an important bearing on the completion of
California avenue and the electric road by
which it will bs traversed.
Another rumor had reference to a transac
action in the upper part of the city, involving
3100,000, but the agent of the property said ha
was not in a position to make a statement.
There is little doubt, however, that the sale
The Twenty-third ward will, no doubt, be
greatly benefited by the Schenley Park, which
may be put down as a certainty, since, so far as
known, there is no longer a serious obstacle to
its establishment. The park bouudsthe ward
on the north side. The streets and avenues are
so laid out as to converge on the park, giving
easy access to it from all parts of the ward.
The great advantages, from a domestic point
of view, to be derived from thepark,hasstimu
latedthe demand for building sites to some
thing akin to a rush, and is bringing the ward
into such prominence as will result in its rapid
settlement by a class of people able, for the
most part, to build good houses and make im
provements to correspond.
The electric road on Second avenue, which
will connect with several other roads for which
charters have been granted, will give the
Twenty-third ward a system of rapid transit
unsurpassed in any other portion of the city.
This will materially enhance its value as a resi
The physical features of the ward are of
great natural beauty such as many, even of the
oldest residents, have but little conception of.
On the south and west there are magnificent
river and landscape views, the latter embracing
the whole of the Southside. On the north is
the Schenley Park, which it is proposed to
make one of the finest for its size in the United
States. The surface is agreeably diversified by
hill and dale, giving a charming variety to its
The ward contains a considerable amount of
vacant land, but, owing to the active demand
for it which has lately sprung up, it will no
doubt be bought up and built on in a short
time. Building sites are selling at from 1,000
to 82,500 an acre, according to location and con
tiguity to the park those adjoining the park
being rated highest.
This is an advance of from 15 to 20 percent
over last spring's prices, and probability favors
another rise of at least 25 per cent within the
next 12 months. But this is not regarded as ex
cessive, in view ot the costly improvements in
contemplation, which will naturally add to the
value of the land.
In a recent address at Chicago Jndge
Gresham made some statements which are
well worth repeating. The meu of ability in
this country, he said, are now largely in busi
ness enterprises. The professions are amount
ing to less and less all the time. In his own
profession the standard is not as high as it was
25 years ago. The time has now come when the
business men of the country must assist them
selves. There are too many mere talkers in
the National and State Legislatures. More
men of practical business experience are
needed here. He believes that if the business
interests of the country were properly repre
sented In Congress a remedy would be speedily
found for the existing inequalities of trade
with the countries of Central and South
America. The conditions should favor us, and
we should not be controlled or governed by
mere sentiments or prejudice. If we need
legislation which will open the doors of those
eountries to us we should modify our laws.
The suggestions of the distinguished jurist
are timely. There is no doubt that too many
Congressmen are without that practical busi
ness knowledge which they should have to deal
with purely bnslness questions. The advice of
prominent manufacturers and business men in
their districts would be heeded, however, and
this should be freely given when the question
of promoting trade with our sister American
nations comes up for discussion in Congress
The growth of the cities of Washington as
disclosed by the last election is something as
tonishing. There was supposed to be a full vote
in 1888, but the gain in 11 months was greater
than it would have been in most parts of the
country in as many j ears. The following fig
ures tell the story. Tacoma, which in 18SS had
2,435 votes, in 18S9 had 5.324; Seattle in 1SSS had
3,571 against 4,560 in 1889; Spokane Falls had
2,435 against 3.148 in 1889. According to these
figures Tacoma must have a population now of
at least 30,000. At the time of the last censns,
nine years ago, it had 1,008, or rather the old
town that bore its name had that many, the
present city not being in existence. Seattle had
3,533, or 1,000 less men, women and children
than it now casts votes. The present popula
tion of Seattle is not less than 25,000. Spokane
Falls was credited by the census with 350 in
habitants. It now casts nine times as many
votes and4ts population cannot be much short
Tue entire population of the three cities in
18-SO, with Yakima, the aspiring candidate for
capital honors thrown in, was less than the
vote of Tacoma at the recent election. This is
a wonderful growth. It has never been
equaled on so large a scale in any part of the
The idea that New England is losing her
manufacturing industries is erroneous. The
New Haven Jiecord, a journal devoted to real
estate, has compiled figures showing that if
Southern and Western cities are enterprisingin
securing new factories. New England townsare
also up and doing. Hardly a city or village that
makes any pretentions to being a manufactur
ing community but what has its board of trade
or some organization of its citizens for the pur
pose of encouraging or offering inducements
to new enterprises. The figures show that 100
new plants have been reported in Connecticut
This is doing well in a State, of 4,990 square
miles, smaller than some of the counties in
Pennsylvania. Other New England States
show almost as good a record. It is hard to
down the Yankees.

in the condition of the local money maricet yes

bursed at C7 per cent. Pittsburg still has a
handsome surplus of f nnds, rendering a strin

Railroad Shares More Active nnd Higher
Money Easier Cotton Oil Decline
Under Unfavorable Bnmoi-,
but Rallies Bond Bur
New Yobk, November 6. The stock market
was more active to-day for the regular list, and
the tone of the dealings, while feverish and ir
regular, was generally firm, and toward the close
positive strength was developed, which resulted
in the establishment of material advances all
over the list. The feature of the day was the
heavy selling of Beading, though the stock re
ceived good support, and the final decline is
only 1 per cent. There was considerable dis
cussion ot the company's affairs on the street.
and as the general expectation is that there
will be little If anything for the incomes, the
stock is farther from a dividend than at any
time since the reorganization. The bears sold
the stock liberally, and liquidation of long ac
counts assumed large proportions, while some
stop orders were unnerved. The decline in
Reading, with the heaviness in the other Coal
ers, retarded the rest of the list, which dis
played an advancing tendency tbronghout the
Cotton Oil was a disturbing factor in the
early portion of the day, weakening under the
rumors of a shortage in tho accounts of the
company to be disclosed at the meeting of the
trustees, but the matter was set at rest by a
card from the chairman saying that the short
age would amount to $277,000, which quieted
apprehension, and as the feeling became more
settled, the worst being kaown, there was a
marked improvement in tne certificates after
that time. Money eased off as the day wore
on, and loans were made at 4 per cent, which
helped along the bullish feeling, and in the
last hour the upward movement became most
pronounced, Louisville and Nashville being
particularly conspicuous on indications of in
side buying. Missouri Pacific also responded
with a material improvement, and is was
known tbat inside support was given tho stock.
A number ot the specialties made marked ad
vances, and the Grangers wero also prominent
late in the day for the strength displayed. The
close was strong. The only decline of note
was lJi in Reading, while Chicago Gas rose 2,
Louisville and Nashville Denver. Texas
and Ft. Worth 1?. Atchison VA, and Rock
Railroad bonds were active for the first time
in months to-day, the sales of all issues reach
ing $2,173,090, and tne tone of the dealings was
strong all the way out, though there were fow
marked advances made outside ot the specially
strong Issues, the Kansas and Texas and the
Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fee. These were
not only foremost in point of strength but also
in activity, and the Kansas and Texas 6s fur
nished $167,000. the 6s $3i9,000 and the 7s $164,000
to the total, while Gulf, Colorado and Santa
Fc lsts contributed $202,000. There were no de
clines of any importonce.
The PosCs nuancial article says: Notwith
standing the continued weakness and further
decline of Reading, and in spite of some trans
parent attempt to get up sensations about Mis
souri and Cotton Trust, the general stock mar
ket was strong, and with the exception ot Read
ing and Cottun Trust all stocks were i to 1 per
cent, nigher at 12 o'clock than they closed on
Monday. The belief tbat the stringency in the
money market is over and that, though rates
for call loans may not be reduced much at once,
there will be a gradual easing of the market
during this month, had a good deal to do with
the Improvement in the stock market, tnongh
as far as the Western stocks are concerned, the
news that the Chicago roads have agreed to ad
vance rates to the Northwest about SO per cent,
was a special factor in advancing the prices of
