THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, TUESDAY NOVEMBER ' 12, 1889;
I0CAL LIVE STOCK.
Leading Features of Markets at the
Herr's Island Yards.
KUtf OF CATTLE LIGHT, GRADE LOW
ITarketfl Slueeish and Prices a Shade Below
SHEEP EUN HEAYY. ARD DEMAKD LIGHT
Office of Ptttsbubg Dispatch,
Moxday, November 1L 1SS9.
The run of stock at these yards was below
that of last week in number and quality.
Demand was light, and prices were a shade
lower all along the line.
Soft weather had the effect of keeping
away a number of the regular cattle buyers
from the yards, and as a result markets
were sluggish and in buyers' favor. Com
mon stock cost less at Chicago than last
week, and sold at a lower range here. Bet
ter grades cost about the same at sources of
supply, but could only be sold at conces
sions on last week's prices.
Prime heavy "Western beeves, weighing
1,500 to 1,600 pounds, sold at $5 005 10;
medium weights, 1,350 to 1,450 pounds,

head, and prices were off 5c from closing rates
of Saturday. The outside price was S3 95. At
East Liberty the range for the best this morn

Light for Local Trade.
Receipts of cattle for local trade at East
Liberty were lighter yesterday than for months
past, the total being little above 100 carloads.
The grade was, in the main, very common.
There were very few prime cattle on the mar
ket; in fact, none strictly prime. The better
grades of good butchering stock were a shade
higher than last week, but this was due entirely
to their scarcity. Common grades were slow at
last week's prices.
It seems that shippers of export cattle of late
have gi venPittsburg yards the go-by.and buyers
of this grade look to other points for their sup
plies. There have been scarcely any prime
beeves coming to the Liberty yards this fait.
Representatives of exporting firms are more
than ever dialing directly with the stock raiser.

Losnoir, November 11. The Mark Lane
Ezpreis, in its weekly review of the British
grain trade, says: English wheats are weak.
The average fall in prices in London has been
Is. The sales of English wheat during the past
week were 73,237 quarters at 30s. 3d, against
59,422 quarters at 31s 8d during the correspond
ing week last year. Flour is flat in London.
Top prices have relapsed 2s 6d per sack. In
Glasgow American declined 6d. Foreign
wheats are firm. California is a fraction
higher. The prices of American red winter,
owing to limited supplies, are against buyers.
Corn and grinding barley are rather cheaper.
Malting barley is firm. Oats are steady.

.New York. November 1L Business in
drygoods was principally restricted to orders
received by mail, which were fair for reason
able goods and in good proportion for spring
laDrics. Transactions on the spot were
unfavorably affected by bad, weaker conditions
though Monday is usually a quiet day with
buyers in tho market. There was some im
provement in the demand for coarse yarn
goods and converters, and exporters took a
considerable quantity of brown cottons adapted
to their purposes. The market was unchanged
and the tone of goods fairly strong.

MAEKETS BY WIRE.
Apathetic Feeling In the Wheat Pit, With
the Principal Effort Directed to Sus
taining Prleea January Fork
Active nnd Higher.
Chicago Wheat There was a light trade
and no new features were presented. A promi
nent local trader was reported as giving some
support to the market, only, however, in the
way of endeavoring to sustain present prices.
Commission houses did only a small business,
and traded on both sides. European markets
were quoted dull and prices tending down. A
decrease in the quantity of wheat on ocean
passage was predicted. The receipts In the
Northwest continue liberal.' Receipts at 11
points footed up 1,099,000 bushels, and ship
ments from the same points 378,000 bushels.
The visible supply showed an increase of
1,130,000 bushels, a little in excess of what had
been generally expected. The principal points
of Increase were Buffalo, Chicago. Duluth,
Minneapolis and N ew York, and the decreases
were at the winter points mainly at Balti
more, Detroit, Toledo, Kansas City. Philadel
phia and the smaller points. The market
ruled steady all through the session, fluctua
tions being confined within a a range, and
the closing was about tho same as Saturday.
In corn a fair trade was reported, though the
market was quiet in the early session, but
later became more active. The market opened
with an easy feeling prevailing and was inac
tive some time, to-day's arrivals running over
expectations. A better demand then sprung
tip. A good many scattering orders came on
the market and prices advanced Ko shorts
for December and year covering then eased off
Jc on realizing, the decrease in the visible of
826,000 bushels not being as largo as expected,
ruled steady, and closed K6&c higher than
Oats were steadier, with a fair volume of
business in futures. Shorts bonght liberally
and the price for November was bid up He
without a trade. May, however, was sold by
longs about as freely as buyers cared to take it,
and the price held steady.
Trading in mess pork was more active, with
January delivery attracting most attention.
The feeling was firmer, and prices were ad
vanced 1012fc &I11 closed comparatively

A SERENE PROSPECT.
Business Sailing Along Smoothly,
"With No Signs of .a Squall.
FARM MORTGAGES REPUDIATED.
Ex-Treasurer Spinner Gives the Else and
Fall of Two Notable Panics.
HEROIC TEEATHEKT SITES MILLI0NB
Business, although devoid of exciting feat
ures, is decidedly bullish. This is an
earnest of continued activity. "While there
is some complaint of small margins of profit,
evidence of the increasing volume of trade
keeps accumulating on every side, and it is
remarkable how large and constant the ad
ditions are. Bank clearings and railroad
earnings furnish very good indications of a
general natnre, and in both cases the re
turns are of the most satisfactory character.
President Clark, of the Thomas Iron Company,
announced on Saturday that he had Just sold
several thousand tons of steel rails at $32 50 per
ton, the highest price reached in three years,
and which was an advance of 50 cents per ton
in 24 hours. Quotations for iron reached all
the way from Sl&to $19, the latter price being
easily obtainable for Immediate delivery. In
connection Mr. Thomas said: "We are not
offering any iron, because we have nono for
sale. We never shipped more Iron in the same
period than in the last three months."
While these are'strong points tor the opti
mistic side of the business situation, there are
those who hold that the top of prosperity has
been reached and that a speedy relapse is in
evitable. Said a prominent business man on
Fifth avenue yesterday: "I am afraid times
are too good to last. It is time to look out for
squalls." Squalls may come, but they have so
far failed to give war ning in advance. If busi
ness were spasmodic, if it were confined to a
limited area, if it 'were largely made up of
speculation, if overproduction were excessive,
and it the circulating medium were inadequate
to the large demand, there would be reason to
apprehend squalls, and severe ones at that, but
none of these things are true. Business is
active the world over, demand shows no evi
dence of satiety, speculation Is narrow, and
there is an abundance of money.
Under these conditions, and with the rapid
growth of population and necessary expansion
of business in the United States, there is no
ground upon which to predicate a collapse.
There may be a lull in mid-winter, as there
nearly always is, bnt that a material reaction
is threatened is contrary to fact and to the be
lief of the best posted among business men.
Holders of Western farm mortgages will be
interested in the statement that farmers in
Southwestern Kansas, who mortgaged their
property before they had settled with the Gov
ernment for their homesteads, now, under
stress of hard times, object to paying their
mortgages on the ground that they are illegal.
Any well-informed lawyer shonld have known
that it was not equitable or lawful to mortgage
property before it was in the possession of the
mortgagor. If avarice has tempted some
Western mortgage companies to advance
money under such circumstances, it will be
a just retribution If such mortgages prove to
A great deal of Eastern money has been
invested in Western mortgages, and where the
investment has been properly made It is
entirely safe. The ambition to secure a large
number of mortgages at a high rate of interest
has probably led some companies in the West
to overdo the business, but those that have
been judiciously and conservatively managed
will not be disturbed by the latest reports from
Ex-Treasurer of the United States, F. E.
Spinner, in an article on "Panics," says:
"Panics, commercial, financial and monetary,
may, perhaps not improperly, be placed in
three classes: the fictitious, the artificial, and
the real. Of the panics that may be classed as
fictitious, one that occurred about 1835. which
had its origin in speculation in pine timber
lands in the State of Maine, is a fair specimen.
It occurred at a time when the monetary and
financial condition of tho country seemed to
be, and probably was, in a perfectly healthy
state. There was at that time no complaint of
a scarcity of the circulating medium, neither
was it superabundant. Wild and reckless
speculations in these Maine pine timber lands,
amounting to a craze, had been going.on not
alone in the State of Maine, but had extended
into other sections of the Union. Sales of
these lands, 'unsight unseen,' at ever increas
ing prices, were constantly made at a sort of
board of trade and exchange in the city of
"A pony express was established between
Portland and Boston that conveyed the news
of the daily sales and the price per acre from
one of these cities to the other. The craze
grew from day to day. the price of these lands
constantly increasing until it. became fabulous.
The streets of Portland were thronged with
enthusiastic pine-land speculators. No lodg
ing places could be had for them; many re
mained in the street, lvMhoat rest, the whole
night long. Now there came along a plain,
common-sense fellow, who had not lost his
bead. He stuck a pin in the speculation blad
der, the wind oozed out, the bladder collapsed,
speculation was at an end, and a perfect panic
set in. All were anxious to sell, but there were
no buyers at any price.
"Under the head of artificial panics I would
place one that occurred during the Presidency
of Andrew Johnson, I cannot now fix the exact
time. Hon. Hugh McCulloch was the very
able Secretary of the Treasury. I held the
office of Treasurer of the United States, and
Hon. Henry Van Dyck, a most excellent officer,
was the Assistant Treasurer in New York.
This trio crushed a panic, for which there was
no real monetary cause, before it had been able
to do much mischief. A band of genteel rob
bers had combined to make a scarcity of the
circulating medium by withdrawing their de
posits from the banks and locking up all the
money they could control, thus incapacitating
the banks to accommodate their regular cus
tomers. "These robbers hoped to make some thou
sands by the injury they knew it would bring
by millions upon others. I was at the time on
a short leave of absence, for the second time
in many years, beginning in 1S61, at my borne
in Mohawk. While there I received a tele
graphic dispatch from Mr. McCnlloch, direct
ing me to immediately go to New York, meet
Mr. Van Dyck, and help devise a way to arrest
the panic. I left by the first train, mot Mr.
Van Dyck at night, and agreed to meet him at
the United States Treasury In New York the
next morning before breakfast. In the mean
time we let it be known that we would so meet,
and for what purpose, by order of the Secretary
of the Treasury. A newspaper announced
"We met as agreed. The office was soon
crowded with bankers, brokers and other 'Wall
street saints.' Bulls and bears alike were there.
Mr. McCulloch had asked what amounpof
called treasury notes remained uncanceled in
the Treasury. This was a hint that at once
brought a conclusion to the minds of Mr. Van
Dyck and myself. We announced that there
were many millions of such notes in the Treas
ury that would be immediately placed on de
posit with the depository banks of the city. It
was urged that there was no law authorizing
such a proceeding. Mr. Van Dyck was a man
of nerve, and answered. 'Law or no law, it will
be done.' I had no trouble of mind in regard
to the matter, for I bad- frequently placed
millions to the credit of paymasters and quar
termasters of the army, when on an emergency
it became necessary to move an army on the
mere verbal request of that great man of the
war, Mr. Stanton, the then Secretary of War.
For these acts 1 could have been criminally
punished, bntfor the good of the country I
took the chances of dismissal and imprison
ment that our troops might be victorious.
Desperate cases require heroic treatment.
"Well, the Board of Brokers met. The raging
fears of the day before changed to a dead
calm. The bears showed their teeth and
growled faintly. The bulls elevated their
horns and sniffed the purified financial air.
The panto was laid out dead, and confidence
was restored. Honest business men, feeling
that the money sharks were foiled in their base
designs of cornering the currency, breathed
freely and were happy again. Not a dollar had
been transferred from the Treasury to tho
banks. The bare fact that If the notes were re
quired they would be furnished, to any amount,
crushed the panic
H0EE LIFE IN STOCKS.
Business Good for Monday, Bet Two of lbs
OtVith yesterday began what promises to be
a week of unusual activity in local stocks.
Business was remarkable for Monday, although
at the expense of values of two of the prims
favorites. The sales were 905 shares. Active
stocks were Electric, Philadelphia Gat, Alle
gheny Heating Company, Fourth National
Bank, Pittsburg and Western preferred, Cen
tral Traction and Pleasant Valley Railway.
The weak spots were Philadelphia Gas and
Electric both selling at concessions. Business
in the former was, as surmised, the covering
old shorts, as there Is believed to be few new
orders on either side of the market. The de
cline in Electric was due to rumors of fresh
legal complications. All tho Tractions were
stronger, with the exception ot Pleasant Val
ley, which was originally weaker. Manufact
urers Gas was offered at 2fl without bids. The
rest of the list about held its own. Bids, offers

The oil market was rather offish at the open

turns during the day, the latter feeling pre
dominating. The opening price was 109,

There was no news to specially offset the

tirely to the longs realizing. The close was
barely steady at a fraction above the lowest
point of the day.
The following was received from Wellsburg.
O.: The drillers of the well on the Kammsley
farm, across the river, have gone 2,000 feet,
with no indications or oil, and announce that
they will make no further trial. Agents of
various companies have several thousand acres

NfwYobk, November 1L The stock mar
ket was feverish and irregular on a very mod er
ate volume of business to-day, and while stocks
as a rule were well held the bears attacked
some spots with such vigor as to force a
material decline. The unfavorable bank state
ment of Saturday had its f nil effect this morn
ing, and the fear of tight money did induce
some throwing over of long stocks by weak and
timid holders, bnt the passive resistance to the
pressure brought by the bears forced them to
desist after only small results were accom
plished. The foreign operations to-day were
insignificant, but there was good buying for
Boston account, especially in Atchison, though
the market for the most part was a local affair
The early drive was made against Lacka
wanna, presumably with the intention of dis
lodging some Reading, but the attempt was a
failure and attention was turned to the Grang
ers, and St. Paul in particular felt the pressure
severely. There were numerous rumors set
afloat in regard to the stock, and the story of
the accumulation of a floating debt of $1,000,000
was most prominent among them. Missouri
Pacific was also later made the object of a raid
which was more successful than the one npon
St. Paul, the effect of which was eombatted by
the earnings for the first week in NoTember,
which n ere the largest for that week in tbe
history of the company. The market, however,
was not without its strong spots, and Atchison
early showed remarkable strength, while Jer
sey Central for the first lime in many days ral
lied materially from its late depression. Among
the specialties Manitoba was conspicuous with
a rise of over 2 per cent, followed by Hocking
Valley and Ontario and Western.
The trnsts were again strong, though they
were quiet to dull, and failed to retain all of
the advance made in the early dealings. Ten
nessee Coal was especially weak in the first
honr, bnt recovered most of the loss later in
the day. There was an attempt to work again
tha money scare, and money did work a little
closer, though most of tbe business was done
at about tbe legal rate. The opening under
the influence of tbe bank statement was heavy,
and was followed by further fractional losses
all over the list. A smart rally followed, bnt
the list was inclined to droop all the forenoon,
notwithstanding the strength in the trnsts and
specialties. Dullness became tbe most promi
nent feature of the market in the afternoon,
but St Paul and Missouri Pacific were raided
to some pnrpose, while the general list showed
a tendency to recover the slight losses of the
forenoon. Another raid was made abont de
livery hour, and considerable impression was
made upon prices, but the market closed fairly
steady, generally at small fractions from tbe
opening prices. Tbe only changes of import
ance to-night are advances of 2 in Manitoba
and i in Jersey Central, and a decline of 1
in Missouri Pacific
Railroad bonds were again active with a gen
erally firm tone. There were few features of
special interest. The Gnlf of Colorado and
Santa Fe issues were strong, though their
final changes were insignificant, and the firsts
contributed $238,000 to tbe day's total of $1,943,
000. The Reading first incomes were also
active, with $127,000, and the Chesapeake and
Ohio fives contributed $108,000. Tbe final fig
ures generally show slight advances.

The reported scheme of a $12,000,000 pipe line

Notwithstanding the denials of Manager
Relghard, of the Globe Heflnery,and President
Craig, of the Atlantic and Western Pipe Line,
that their concerns have been sold to tbe Stand

clined to credit the report, although they have
no tangible evidence on which to base their be
lief. The amount of money involved in the sale
by W. C. Stewart, of tbe Baum Oroya prop
erty, mentioned on Sunday, was in tbe neigh
borhood of 1150,000. John P. Baxter is having
the Baum homestead surveyed ready to place
on the market for Mellon Brothers. In addi

tract adjoining on the east to the same parties

MR. WALTER'S TROUBLE.
His Version of the Matter.
Of tbe hundreds of patients cured by the
physicians of the Polypathia Medical Insti
tute during the past six months, perhaps
none have experienced more intense suffer
ing than has Mr. Henry "Walter. Ihe com
plication of aches and pains resulting from
rheumatism, associated with a severe chronic
cough, caused him untold misery. Speak
ing of his trouble one day, he said: "A,
catarrhal secretion of mucus often dropped
down from my head into my throat. A hard,
dry cough so affected my lungs that my
breath became very short, I had a tired
feeling, and as I grew weaker my stomach
became involved. My food would sour on
my stomach, and I had sour, bitter eructa
tions of gas. I had pain over mv eyes, and
often felt dizzy. My hands and feet were
continually cold, and I was 'also afflicted
with rheumatism. I would hare sharp
pains fn my side and back, and I wonld
sometimes have such a numb, dead feeling.
My disease gradually grew worse. One
day I happened to read in the papers
an account of a person who had been cured
by the physicians of the Polypathic Insti
tute of a disease similar to my own. I
therefore placed myself under their care,
and became entirely cured."
Mr. "Walter is a well-known gentleman,
and his address will be furnished anyone by
calling at tbe Institute, 420 Penn avenue.
The physicians in charge treat success
fully all forms of kidney and urinary dis
eases. Also cbronio diseases, including
those peculiar to women.
Positively no operations are performed, as
by their medicines and appliances, which
are-not known to the general practice, the
ladies can themselves use the treatments.
