, "'A Big Advance in Wire and Sleel liails
. the Past Two Months.
i HEAYI HARDWARE TEKDING UP
And Manufacturers Are in Dread of a Boom
LITE STOCK AT THE LIBEETI IAKDS
Office of FrrrsBURQ Dispatch, 1
THnBSDAT. November 7. 1BS9. J
The situation and outlook of the hard
ware trade have not olten been as bright as
at present. In fact oar dealers in this line
are pushed to meet orders, manufacturers
being far behind in many lines of heavy
hardware. In the past 60 days wire nails
have advanced SO per cent and steel nails 60
per cent. Strap hinges in the same period
have advanced one-third.
Hannfacturers are covered with orders,
and in some lines of heavy hardware they
will not be able to catch up before spring.
Bald a representative of one of our leading
hardware firms to-day:
"It is next to impossible to secnre a I nil line
dt beavy hardware, unless orders were placed
with manufacturers a cood while ago. There
are some important lines which are sold to the
loll capacity of manufacturers up to ApiiL
Even Speculation Sustained.
"Many dealers have been buying specula
tively, confident of an advance, and results so
far have justified their faith. There is no likeli
hood of a decline, as all manufacturers of
beavy hardware have more trade than tbey are
able to attend to. The advance so far has been
confined to beavy hardware. Grates and fire
fronts and light hardware have not vet met
with a demand sufficient to justify an advance."
It has been a number of years since mann
factnrers of cut nails have been able to reap
anv profit. The 60per cent advance of the past
60 days has imparted new heart to the trade.
Bo far the increase of values U legitimate and

ahead is a boom which will send prices too
high, to be followed by the inevitable collapse
and period of depression and loss. Speculation
is the great curse of legitimate trade. And
there are signs in the heavens, or rather the
deeps, that we are on the verge of one of those
unhealthy booms, which have yielded such dis
astrous fruits in the past. There may be a
Xmd of pleasure in the process of getting
drunk. But getting sober is by no means so
pleasant. Our business booms sober down

It will be seen by the accompanying report of
the week's transactions at the East Liberty
yards that receipts of cattle for local trade
have varied scarcely any in the past three
weeks. The run tjf sheep and bogs were almost
identically the same this week as last. All
grades of cattle were lower this week than
last, but good grades suffered most in the de
cline. There were very few good beeves in this
eek's offerings, and most of these were sent
East, as there were no export buyers at Liberty
and home butchers' wants were not sufficient
to absorb the good stock. Of strictly prime
cattle there were noue on sale. The grade
averaged lower than at any time this season.
Sheep were very slow sale at a reduction ot
20c to 30c per cwt from last week's prices, and
shippers must have suffered heavy loss on this
Hogs were slow at the beginning of the
week, but, on light receipts, recovered later on
and are fairly steady to-day.

Nirw York, November 7. There is an im
proved demand for fabrics adapted to the
wants of jobbers. The request for bleached
cottons was well sustained Prices of both
brown and bleached goods were firm as a rule,
with an upward tendency on coarse yarn and
Southern brown cottons. The print cloth mar
ket also tends upward, with spot goods ad
vanced 1-16. Spring fabrics continue in good
request and are well under the control of
orders. Stocks continue light. Any excep

most disastrous fire in the history ol this
city broke ont in the business portion about

Chicago Wheat Trading was only of
a moderate character, and there were no new
features presented. The influences were all of
about the same tenor with the exception that
the receipts in the Northwest did not show up
quite as large. At the opening the market
was a shade better, declined Jic and closed
Kc lower for December and 5Je lower for
Hay than closing figures yesterday.
The large floor traders were on both sides,
buying and selling, and New York and the
Northwest sent in some selling orders. The
offerings for May at times were quite heavy,
and the premium was further reduced ifi. The
premium for May, which was 44Kc over De

further shrinkage In the difference between
these two futures, though operators incline to
the belief that the premium will widen.
There was considerable covering by shorts.
Aronnd 84c for May some stop orders were
struck which helped to depress that future.
The late market indicated more disposition to
sell December. Exports on the number of
boatloads taken at New York for export
varied from 5c to 14c A rumor was circulated
at the close of 'Change that a round lot of
wheat had been bought at Minneapolis by Chi
cago parties which Is to come here.
Corn A fair trade was reported early, after
which the market became quite dulL The
feeling on the whole was firm, and trading
early was at higher prices, but the advance was
not sustained. The market opened at the
closing pricesof yesterday, was firm, offerings
of November being light and under a good de
mand from shippers' prices were bid up J6Kc
but later offerings were more liberal and a de
cline of )ic was recorded and final quota
tions were nearly the same as yesterday.
Oats were steadier with a moderate volume
of trading. The firmness was due to receipts
being less than expected. Prices ranged a
shade higher and the market closed steady.
Mess port A comparatively light trade was
reported. November was offered to some ex
tentcredited to the long interest with a fair
demand for January and May. Some changing
from the former to the latter two months at
the current differences. Also some bovine of
November on investment account. Prices
ruled 510c lower for November, while the

A WILD DCCK CAUGHT.

The first start toward establishing a
zoological garden at Highland Park was
made yesterday by the voluntary surrender
of an ornithological specimen. A wild duck,
tempted by the rich pond-bearing appear
ance of the water in the Bedford reservoir
flew down upon its surface. Caught by the
current running to the effluent chamber the
bird was sucked under and rose within the
chamber, One of the waterworks employes
aw the bird drawn in, and procuring a fish
hook and line, succeeded in hooking the
duck by one of its feet
The bird was turned over to Lou Den

who has it caged, and says he will place it
on one of the artificial lakes of the park
next spring. He will try to tame the duck
in the meanwhile.

WOODS' BUN BRIDGE AND VIADUCT
To be Bailt by tbe Pennsylvania Company.
Which Explains a Big Deal.
THE CONDITION OP THE IRON TRADE
It seems impossible to appease the greed
of the Standard Oil Company, if all reports
be true. As probably the latest illustration,
it was stated yesterday bv a gentleman who
said he obtained the information from a
reliable source, although he would not
vouch for its accuracy, that the Atlantic
and 'Western Pipe Line will soon be ab
sorbed by the great monopoly.
He added: "While I believe there is
something of the kind on foot I have not
been able to verify the report I see no rea
son to doubt its correctness, however. If it
should be a go it will have the effect of not
only sustaining the present price of oil, but
of putting it still higher, and wiping out the
premium. This will put all oil on the same
This is important to the oil trade, and the
progress of the deal. If such there be, will bo
watched with lively interest.
Just why a few speculative gentlemen pur
chased a considerable body of land in the
Eleventh ward, Allegheny, was not known at
the time, bnt it Is clear enough now. It ap
pears that the Pennsylvania Company, In re
turn for certain privileges extended to them by
Allegheny City and certain property holders,
have agreed to erect a bridge and viaduct at
Woods' Run. at a cost of S100.000.
This wdl not only benefit the Pennsylvania
Company, but, by assuring the the opening of
California avenue, for which the bridge will be
utilized, it will boom adjoining property, of
which the track in question forms a part. Tbe
avenue will traverse a beautiful strip of coun
try, and will, no doubt, greatly enhance values
throughout the district. With the great help
of tbe Pennsylvania Company the success of
the thoroughfare seems to be reduced to a cer
While there have been no particular acces
sions of business the past week, the iron trade
has been active and pnees fully maintained.
It is thought they are about at the top. The
prospect contlnnes favorable lor a good busi
ness throughout the winter, unless the weather
should be so severe as to stop railroad and
bridge building. This opinion rests upon tbe
fact that stocks are light, with a large pros
pective demand for all kinds of railroad mate
rial. Pig iron is very firm and furnacemen are
closely sold up. Several heavy orders for rails
have been placed East within the past few
days at $32 to 33. Quotations here are S33 to
$34, and S35 at Chicago All the mills are bnsy
and are still considerably in arrears of orders.
Pipe manufacturers consider the decision of
the Indiana Supreme Court a good thing tor
Contrary to the general drift of opinion the
iron Age thinks there will be a lull in the
trade, and gives some good reasons for its
belief. It says: "We are now approaching a
time of the year when usually there is a lull m
the demand for iron and steel, and the signs
are not wanting that this year will not be an
exception. During the winter the consump
tion is always less than in the spring and
summer, and in November and December this
is generally felt most, because after the open
ing of tbe new year the purchases of raw ma
terial and finished goods for use during the
spring season begin. Some large consumers
generally take advantage of this state of
affairs. Thus the great railroad corporations
place their renewal orders. Bnt in snch lines
as cast-iron pipe, wrought-Iron pipe, in tbe cut
and wire nail trade, in barb-wire, in structural
materials, the demand slackens during the last
two months of the year and usually does not
maEe its appearance until February. These
are the factors which are at work to produce a
lull in the activity which has characterized the
last two months." V
The local lumber trade is quite active for tLo
season, and prices show a hardening tendency.
Stocks are still light, but as the car famine has
commenced to ease up they will soon be replen
ished. The cause of activity is due to the ex
tensive building operations which are being
carried on, and to tbe flourishing condition of
every industry depending upon iron and steel
for vitalizing force.
So long as these great interests thrive build
ing will go on and the demand for lumber in
crease So rapidly has the lumber business of
Pittsburg grown in the last year or two that
some of the dealers thine the time has come
to establish a Lumber Exchange.
New York is doing big things in the building
line, and if she continues for a few years at
the same high-pressure speed she will enjoy
the distinction of being the second largest city
in tbe world. She is already crowding Paris,
and Is nearly half 'as large as London.
in addition to the building boom she is having
a season of great activity in real estate It is
stated that no less than $225,000,000 of property
changed hands in New York from January 1 to
October 31 inclusive, against 181,000,000 during
the corresponding months of 1888. Pittsburg is
not solitary and alone, as Senator Benton was
won't to say, In her prosperity.

Bankers Expect Much From the Visit of the
Local financiers reported a fair remand for
money yesterday, which was met at the cus
tomary rates. All the banks had funds to
spare. Even those reported closely loaned np
were looking for customers. Tbe exchanges
were $2,055,890 43, and tbe balances S32L310 12.
As a general thing Pittsburg bankers take a
favorable view of the visit of the Fan-Americans.

THE COALERS DOWN.
Tbey Constitute tbe Conspicuously Weak
Spot of tbe Share Market The
Trnsts Losing Their Influ
ence on Speculation
New Yoek, November 7. The stock mar
ket again showed an active business in tbe
general list to-day, with the trusts compara
tively quiet, though the important movements
were in tbe latter. The news of the day was
not of special importance, except tbe an
nouncement of the decision in the case of the
North River Sugar Refinery, which was ad
verse to the trust, sustaining the previous de
cision of Judge Barrett. There was a moderate
amount of buying for outside centers, but the
majority of the purchases had tbeir origin
here, and reflected tbe improved feeling in the
street over the easing up of money rates and
the confidence in the continuance of a plenti
ful supply from this time out.
The whole list, with the exception of tbe
Coalers, showed a strong tone, andjt bough af
fected adversely by the weakness In the Coal
stocks at no time displayed weakness. Tbe
trusts to a large extent have ceased to have an
influence unon the shares In tbe regular list,
and tbe decline in sugar to-day met with little
or no response outside of tho other trust
shares. Tbe weakness in the Coalers, however,
did have an influence and served to check the
advance in the early portion of the day, ihouch
the reaction amounted to fractional amounts
only. Reading was again subjected to severe
pressure, especially in thi first hour, but in that
stock, as in most of the other leading shares
covering of shorts becamea factor toward the
close of business, and it actually shows a frac
tional eain for the day. Jersey Central, how
ever, dropped away sharply on a light business
uuu liiucu w icuuici ouyui toe less, while toe
uiuveuieuis m mo uuiers were msigniucanu
The support in Reading at the lowest prices
wag most pronounced and led to the free cover
ing of the afternoon. Among the active stocks
Louisville and Nashville and Missouri Pacific
were the most prominent for activity and
strength, though they both yielded readily at
times and failed to score marked advances for
that reason. Among the specialties Tennessee
Coal was tbe feature and it again touched 62 re
taining most of the improvement at the close.
Michigan Central was strong and active while
the other Vanderbllts were dull and stagnant.
Considerable animation was shown again in
Ontaria and We'ern but it failed to make any
movemeitof impo tmce.
The market ouene i with great activity, and
first prices w ere 3iii per cent higher than last
evening's figures, which was supplemented by
further lractional advances in the first hour,
Missouri Pacific, Louisville and Nashville and
Atchison leading tbo nnward movement. Cot
ton Oil was especially weak at this time, but
failed to have effect beyond checking tbe ad
vance toward nuon. Sugarand the Coal smcks
joined tbe decline, but tbe selling was seeming
ly over by noon, when the market became dull,
with a slow but steady advancing tendency,
which became most pronounced toward tbe
clo-e. Tbe market finally closed fairly active
and strong at close to the best prices. Sugar is
down 2 and Jersey Central 2 per cent, but the
are fur fracional amounts.
A moderate degree of activity again marked
the dealincs in railroad bonds to-day, and tbe
sales of all lssnes reached tbe sum of $2,120,000.
The features or tbe trading were Kansas and
Texas 7s, with $199,000: the Fort Worth and
Denver firsts, with $148,000; the Gulf, Colorado
and Santa Fe firsts, with $140,000. and the Den
ver and Rio Grande 4s, w)th S1H.00O. The en
tire market was strong also, and many material
advances were scored, though there was no
marked feature In this respect, as during the
past two days.

How Mr. Ford Stated Tbat Jndge Over Was
a Walking Delegate.
"W. E. Ford, the Delinquent Tax Collec
tor, said yesterday that he had one of those
peculiar cases occur a few days ago which
show that men are somewhat prone to view
matters from their own standpoint. A well
known labor rights advocate who had occa
sion to be present during the session of the
Orphans' Court complained that Judge Over
had thrown out a charge of $20 for drawing
up a will in the accounting for an estate.
The reason assigned, for the rejection of the
claim was the fact that a layman and not a
lawyer had drawn up tbe document. On
this feature the labor advocate expanded
most violently, wanting to know why any
American citizen who could write decent
English could.not draw up a will as well as
Mr. Ford, who is possessed of considerable
dry humor, said to him: "My dear sir, this
is simply an evidence of tbe spread of labor
organization. You see, the Judge, in his
capacity of walking delegate for the bar
association, was perfectly right in sitting
down on scab labor in the shape of a will
made by a man not qualified at the bar."
The man who made the objections left
perfectly satisfied with the explanation, and
indorsing the action of the Judge in his
capacity of walking delegate.

Labor Undergoing Scrutiny.
' The committee appointed to audit the ac
counts or William E. Thompson as treas
urer of tbe Johnstown relief fund met yes
terday in Mr. Thompson's bank and com
menced their work.
The original committee was composed of
Gevernor J. B. Foraker, of Ohio; Mayor
William Cregier, of Chicago, and Governor
Luce, of Michigan. These gentlemen were
requested by Chairman MoCreery to audit
Mr. Thompson's accounts. Mayor Cregier
sent Colonel W. P. Bend as a substitute;
Governor Foraker sent General A. A. Ax
liae and Governor Luce sent Colonel J. K.
The committee commenced at once to
make a very rigid examination of all ac
counts. Their task is no small one. Mr.
Thompson received about $817,000, all but
$40,000 of which was paid out It will be
necessary for him to keep part of that to
meet unpaid claims. The committee com
pleted most of theh work yesterday, and
will be able to make a statement tbis even
ing. They expressed themselves yesterday
as greatly surprised utthe enormous amount
of work done by the Pittsburg people.
A NURSE'S SAD DEATH.
A West Penn Hospital Attache Dies of
Typhoid Fever After a Long; Illness.
Superintendent Cowen, of West Penn
Hospital, remarked yesterday that the lail
roaders' ward is rapidly filling. The winter
season always brings a greater number of
surgical patients than any other time of
the year. For the last few days the ambu
lance has been going constantly, night and
day. In the railroad ward alone there are
26 patients. The other surgical wards are
also crowded. Altogether 219 patients are-
nousea in tne hospital under medical treat
ment. Typhoid fever steadily furnishes patients.
Yesterday 30 cases were being attended to,
but all are in a fair way to recover, most of
the patients being convalescent.
Mr. Cowen said that the first death among
the employes took place yesterday, since his
administration began four years ago. Miss
Pearl Glemer. of Brownsville, a unrse who
has been resident at the hospital for the last
three years, was stricken with typhoid fever
about three weeks ago'. She lingered until
yesterday, when she succumbed to the mal
ady. Her bodv was shinned home to Bruwns-
Tille, whtre the will be buried on Saturday. J

MR. H. B. KUNKLE.
Besiding at Apollo, and foreman of a sec
tion of the West Penn Bailroad, having a
large number of men in his charge, has for
many years been a great sufferer from
Catarrh of the Stomach and a diseased con
dition of the liver. His stomach gave him
much pain and it felt sore on pressure. His
bowels were constipated, and he had a very
dark, sallow complexion. He had no ap
petite, and what little food he did eat seemed
to do him no good, for he had a sick,
nauseons feeling after eating. In fact the
very sight or food would often make him
sick at the stomach. He had -a dnll pain
over his eyes. He could not sleep, and he
was always tired, and more so on getting up
in tbe morning than when he went to bed.
As the disease extended to his throat and
lungs he did much hawking andspittingand
he felt a weight and pressure in his lungs.
It was while in this condition that he con
sulted the Physicians of the Catarrh and
Dyspepsia Institute, at 323 Penn avenue,
who told him he could yet be enred.
Although he said he had already treated
with filteen doctors, receiving no permanent
benefit, and had but little laith, her began
treatment. Of the result he says;
"My disease was of 18 years standing. I
now feel like a new man. I have a good
appetite, sleep well, feel rested in the morn
ing and am glad to state tbat I have been cured
ot all the above conditions by the Physicians
of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute.
H. a KUNKLE."
Mr. Kunkle is wen known among railroad
men In Allegheny and Armstrong counties.
The Catarrh and Dyspepsia institute Is tier
man en tly located at 323 Penn avc, for tbe cure
of Catarrh. Dyspepsia and Diseases of Women.
