QUIET TEADE IN FLOEAL OFFERINGS
OFFICE Or riTTSBURO DISPATCH,
FlUDAT. November S. 1SS9. f
The features of interest developed the
past week concerning market basket-filling
are the advaace in tomatoes and e?gs, and
decline in tropical fruits, particularly
oranges, which begin to come in freely irom
Florida. All else remains at about the
same figure as last Saturday.
Out-door tomatoes were nipped by bit
ing frosts last week, and their day is nearly
at an end. Twey are still, however, to be
lound on the stalls at prices nearly double
those which ruled last Saturday.
Of domestic fruits, grapes and apples are
about all that are left, and for these prices
are the same as last Saturday. Another
week will probably leave this field to the one
line of apples. Tropical fruits are jn better de
mand, and oranges are to be had at lower rated
than a week ago.
Fifth, Oysters nnd Fonltrr.
At the fish and oyster stalls quiet week's
trade was reported. In some choice grades of
flsh supply is still inside of demand, but mar
kets are much better stocked with all kinds of
fish than at any time this feasor. Consumers
of f:!i and oysters have evidently not gotten
fairly down to their work.
Foi ry is in better supply and lower, tnrkey
being the exception to this rule. The latter
aie, u far. scarce in our markets, and the
Thanksgiving bird bids fair at this date to be
more expensive than usual. Countrymen
through Pittsburg's bailiwick report au un
usual scat city of turkevs, and our supplies this
season must come chiefly from the " est.
Lovers ot game will have little trouble secur
ing everything in this line that is desired.
Ese (iH Scarce.
There is a great scarcity or good fresh eggs,
and retail prices are higher than last Saturday.
A sure article of hen fruit brings 30c per dozen,
and is much cheaper at this figure than the
best cold storage eggs at 25c per dozen.
In floral lines trade is quiet. Society has
done no big things this week to call out floral
displays. Next week promises much better in
this line. Chrysanthemums are now at their
best. Next week Philadelphia is to have its
great annual display of chrysanthemums,
which for a dozen years past has been the great
floral event of the year.

Chicago "Wheat There was a rather dull
dragging of trade during most of the session,
nith fluctuations again confined within narrow
limits. Influences were both favorable and
unfavorable. European markets were dull,
but export clearances were heavy. On the
other hand, a proposition before the Ware
house Commissioners, looking toward the low
ering of grading, is having some effect in the
way of unsettling tiade. It is difficult to fore
see, though onerations lean to the belief that
it would create lower prices. The market here
opened dull andeasyandlatcr became stronger,

to outside range, or Jc for December and Jc

ST. PETEE'S CHDKCH RDJI0KS CORNERED
There being rumors in tbe air that negoti
ations were going on looking to the sale of
St. Peter's Episcopal Church property, at
the corner of Grant street and Diamond
alley, and that Henry A. "Weaver & Co.
were managing the deal, The Dispatch
representative called on that firm yesterday
evening to learn the facts. Mr. "Weaver
said: "There have been some capitalists
who wanted to see what the property could
be bought at. This we endeavored to do,
but lound the vestry little inclined to sell,
not knowing where they could get another
property so conveniently located for public
worship. Besides, the church is not in debt,
and has no taxes to pay. If St. Peter's
changes ownership at all.it will not be for some
It has also been reported that the property of
Mr. C. L. Magee, on the corner of Fifth ave
nue and Grant street, was in the deal. Mr.
Weaver staten that this was a valuable piece
of ground none more so but that it must be
considered entirely distinct from the church
property, and added: "Mr. M3gee has had
plans prepared for a large office building, as I
have been informed, and will profiably erect a
fine house on tbe premises."
Pittsburg is destined to become a city of
homes. A good start in this direction bas been
made Owners of unimproved land are be
coming interested in building, and the finan
cial institutions of the city evince greater lib
erality than has been their custom in forward
ing the good work. A real estate broker re
marked yesterday: "I think the time is not far
distant when a man can walk into a Pittsburg
bank and cash a mortgage as readily as a check,
as is now done in Philadelphia. This would
give building such an impetus as would make
the present boom appearinsignificant. We aro
coming to this verv fast."
"Some Thoughts on Fuel Gas." was the title
of a paper read by Mr. John Young, of Alle
gheny City, at the recent Baltimore meeting of
the American Gas Light Association. He con
cluded by saying: '! he rapid progress that has
been made during the last lew years in reduc
ing the cost of. production and distribution of
electric lighting, its rapidly growing popularity
for street lighting and for stores, hotels,
theaters, railway stations and even private
residences, point to a not far distant time when
illuminating gas companies must look to some
other means of utilizing their manufacturing
and distributing plant than in the supnly of
illuminating gas. Would it not be well for gas
companies to spend some time and money in
investigating into the possibilities of a manu
factured fuel gas when applied to domestic
heating and cooking on thoroughly economic
and scientific principles?"
The latest reported addition to the industries
of Jeannctte is a steel plant to be established
there by Eastern capitalists. Tbe location se
lected is jnst outside of the town proper, and
was selected on account of the proximity of
natural gas in the Grapevflle belt. It is said
that the works when in operation will employ
at least 700 men, and will be comprised of a
steel making and finishing department. In tbe
latter fine tools and machinery of various pat
terns will be produced.
The importance of bnilding small and medium-sized
houses seems to be more generally
appreciated than ever before. The number of
these classes of buildings erected this year is
without precedent in tbe history of the city,
and they bavo all been sold or rented, a fact
which should not be overlooked by capitalists.
Pittsburg is growing very rapidly. Houses are
occupied as fast as they are built. The de
mand for tbern next year, it is thought, will be
very good. It should be met To ignore it
would be a reflection on the moneyed men of
Pittsburg, which they would not like to have
placed on record against them.
The following is extracted from an English
letter on the iron situation: "There can be no
doubt that tbe revival, which has now for some
time been steadily maintained, is passing into
that condition of rapid rises and phenomenal
demand which can be characterized only by
that expressive phrase which, I believe, eman
ated from your side 'a boom.' Everywhere ii.
dications are toward further progress. While
they acknowledge the value of the United
States demand, British iron and steel masters
are yet not basing tSeir hopes upon this rock
exclusively. They remember that during the
autumn and winter of 1S79-S0 it was the in
creased demand chiefly from tte United States
which brought about the boom in North of En
gland pig iron and in metal made in other
British centers. The boom subsided, then
directly the demand fell off. To-day, while not
undervaluing theimmense Importance of trans
Atlantic buying, British iron and steel masters
are yet pleased to find that the demand is not
confined to any one country, but that it is well
distributed over most of our foreign markets."
Secretary Windom throws cold water on the
report of a bond corner. He Says: "I have
beard nothing to lead me to believe that there
is a syndicate attempting to get control of the
bonds. 1 believe that the registered bonds are
pretty well scattered. There are some 40,000
holders of this class. The unregistered bonds,
of course, we cannot tell anything about.
Some of the former bonds may bave been
transferred of late by the original holders,
and the Treasury Department would not nec
essarily know anything about that, but I have
not heard that such transfers bave'been made,
or that bonds are being absorbed by a few peo
ple." He added: "Unless something unfore
seen arises, there are no indications to point to a
tight money market or an excessive demand
for money which cannot be readily spplied."
The activity of the iron trade and the great
demand for coke bave quietened the inquiry
for coal lands wherever they exist. Those in
Southern Fayette county promise to come into
market soon. The work of securing options
has been going on for some weeks past. The
proposed extension of the Southwest Railroad
into West Virginia and the extension of slack
water to Morgantown is responsible for the
boom. J. V. Thompson, the Uniontown
banker, has taken 90-day options on 3,000 acres
in the vicinity of Masontown, with a frontage
of four miles on the Monongahela, at $50 per
acre. J. A. Nieholls, also of Uniontown, has
2,000 acres in the same vicinity at tbe same
price. The H. C. Frick Coke Company and
the McClure Coke Company are also reported
to have some options. J. W. Moore is said to

According to information from Peeryville, W.
Va. tbe utmost activity prevails in the mining
region throughout that and Mercer counties,
and more men are employed than ever before.
The total production of coal in that basin is
about 100,000 tons per month, of which amount
the Turkey Gap mines get out about 25,000
tons, the remainder being scattered. About
1,000 coke ovens are in operation, and 200 more
are building, 100 being erected bytbePowhatan
Company. These latter will be fired in about
a week. One hundred and fifty miners' cot
tages have been built in the county during the
past GO days, anu iney are. au tenanted Dy fam

have been put down during the year, and the
whole region is in a prosperous condition.

A Strong Stock: Market, Wltb a Spurt In
The feature of the stock market yesterday
was a renewal of activity In Westinghouse
Electric, which, under the impetus of a good
demand, advanced from 49 to 51. The true
inwardness of the boom could not be got at,
as it was impossible to go behind the brokers,
fij-nmt.ivelv. hnt it was said to be due to the
formation of a clique, chiefly connected with
the company, to take all the stock they can get
around the present quotation. The property
having been stripped of some of its legal com-
SUcations, and Dusiness being large and rapidly
icreasinc, is considered agood purchase at
an vtbing under 55. But it may go higher.
Philadelphia Gas and Central Traction were
also on their mettle, and presentedabold f ronti
as if they had never been under a cloud. The

Petroleum made a jump to $i 12J yesterday
the bizbest price since "January, 18S4. The
opening was $1 10J highest $1 12 lowest
$1 09K, closing $1 11. Although the market
was strong and excited most of the day, trad
ing was so light as to attract very little atten
tion. The news of the day was nearly all bullish.
The European markets were reported higher,
consumption on the increase and stocks rapid
ly disappearing. There was also a feeling that
prices are up to stay. This gives confience to
tbe trade, and is beginning to impress out
siders. The onlv element of weaEncss was a
report that the Standard was about to make a
move. It is said to bave large foreign orders
and to want cheaper)!!.
The market is rather ticklish. One side is
afraid to sell short, and the other in doubt as
to the advisability of buying. The consequence
is that prices bob up and down on very light
Advices from Washington. Pa., were to the

about 12 barrels per hour. This well is getting
its oil from the 50-foot sand, which is at all

not improve the territory as much as if it were
getting its oil from another sand. McCown No.

Makes nn Impression Upon Railroad Shares
Storlca Which Depress Prices
Snzar Trnat Scores a Hand-
tome Advance Bonds
Ne-w York, November 8. The stock mar
ket to-day was irregular, but-generally weak,
though there was little impression made upon
prices ontside of a few stocks which were the
objects of special bear manipulation. There
was a story from Philadelphia concerriing a
surplus capital reserved for the Reading Coal
and Iron Company, out of which the losses of
tho present year would be taken, leaving all
the railroad earnings to be applied to payment
of interest upon the incomes. Tnis, with the
splendid support which the stocks received,
kept Reading up to and even above the level
of last evening's figures, and the attention of
tho bears was given entirely to the other stocks
of that group.
Lackawanna was the createst sufferer and
was closely followed by Jersey Central and
Delaware and Hudson. The efforts of the
bears were slacked off toward noon, and prices
left to themselves rallied slowly, with special
strength in Atebison and some of the specialties,
while Sugar, which lias received some support
of late, was bought largely by the trading ele
ment and scored a handsome advance. Toward
the close there were rumors of a report from
an expert accountant to be published which
would show a deficit for the year in St Paul in
stead of a surplus.
The bear pressure was turned upon the Grang
ers, and St. Paul led another downward move
ment, which, however, extended to all the
others, though Rock Island was the only one
upon which any impression was made outside
ot St. Paul. Among the specialties Hocking
Valley and Tennessee Coal were the leading
strong features, and both were conspicuous for
strength. The one really strong stock of tbe
regnlar list was Atchison, which was taken
freely upon rumors of unexpected success in
the reorganization scheme. Tho close was
heavy at close to first prices for most of tho
Railroad bonds were again moderatelyactive,
and tbe bnsiness done reached $1,940,000, out of
which St Louis, Arkansas and Texas se:onds
figured for $218,000, and the Chesapeake and
Ohio 5's for $113,000.
