-fHides and Harness Leather Active,
and Prices Steady.
Competition and Close Margins Stimulate
Shoddy Goods.
Office of Pittsbtjbo Dispatch,
Tuesday. November 12. 18S9. t
The hide market holds up well, consider
ing the fact that this is the dull season and
that the receipts of cattle are unusually
large of late at lire stock centers. Heavy
steer hides are firm at quotations, nd only
extremely light hides are weak. Dealers
report very large offerings, but with the ex
ception of lightweights and calfskins mar
kets hold up well.
It will be seen by reference to quotations
below that green calfskins are 3c lower per
pound than heavy steer hides. There has
been a steady downward drift of calfskins
the past few years. Three years ago green
hides were at least 3c per pound lower than
preen calfskins. Now they are 3c per pound
higher. The change has been brought about
by the immense growth of the split cowhi de
trade. The hide is made to do double duty by
splitting, and something equivalent to a num
ber of ; calfskins is evolved from one hide.
How Shoes Were Cheapened.
The ordinary footwear has been immensely
cheapened by the new processes, bat the cheap
ening bas been at the expense of quality. The
new fancied leather may present all'Jie outside
appearance of first-class calf, or kip, bnt lacks
the wearing qualities and comfort of the genu
ine article. Competition and. clcse margins
have introduced an era of shoddy goods, and
there is little doubt that in the line of footwear
wo are paying more m the long T.un than when
higher prices were paid.
It is one of the signs of Vhe times that calf
skins are so much below jter hides in price.
Butchers no longer count t'de calfskin as an
item of interest in their prc.flr, -whereas a few
years age it was an impotent factor. Follow

Harness Leather.
Harness leather is moving out freely, and,
though tix capacity ot the Allegheny tanners
has been increased f nlly 25 per cent in the past
two yea s, it now looks as though there wonld
e no a xcmulation of stock this fall.

Leather Belting.
There is within the corporate limits of Pitts
burg but one tannery namely, that of the
Hartleys, at East Liberty which is devoted to
Ibe one interest of leather belting. A half
century aco there were a number of tanneries
an this city, but as land became precions in the
old city the tanning industry graduallv shifted
10 the Jiorthside. The one survivor on this
side is that close to the East Liberty station.
There some 50 men are employed turning out
leather belting, and from 2U0 to 300 heavy steer
.hides are worked up each week. A rerresent-
aure 01 ims una repuru, an active aemand lor
rtheir goods. Said he: "We have no seasons
of activity and quietness in our line, but a
uniform trade, which is far better. Of course
trade improves when our iron industries are
.active, and new plants are springing up. The
ordinary wear and tear in the iron mills ot this
section furnishes a fair demand for our goods;
and while we cannot report a boom, our in
dustry is in a very healthy condition, and there
is a good demand for all the stuff we are able,
with our present capacity, to turn out."

Spring orders continued of good proportions,
while staple goods were more or less quiet,
with some improvement for export and for
converting. The market for cotton goods
ruled firm without change, bat stocks contiuue
light with reryfew exceptions, woolen goods
were quiet, except dress goods for spring,
which were in fair order request. There was
an auction sale of about (100,000 worth of
woolen clothing offered by N aumberg. Kraus,

The report byBeerbobm that the preliminary
official crop report of Russia indicated a short
age of L00Q,X bushels of wheat and 95,000,000
bushels of rye as compared with last year's
crop, was the only feature of interest and had a

Which May Extinguish the Western
.and Atlantic Pipe Line.
Owners of Bealty Showing a Disposition to
Stick to Fair Prices.
As throwing some light on the mystery
surrounding the reported absorption ot the
Western aud Atlantic Pipe Line and re
fineries by the Standard Oil Company, it
can be stated authoratively that Mr. Joseph
Craig has disposed of his interest, a little
less than one-fourth, in the properties in
question to his former partners, Messrs.
"Weidner, Eeighard & Co. This much
cqmes from Mr. Craig direct He will here
after giTe his whole attention to the devel
opment of his prodncing interests.
Jnst what lies hack of this transaction is
still a matter of speculation. A gentleman
who claims to know something about it re
marked yesterday evening: "I think it is
the first of a series of moves to place the
property in a few hands, with the ultimate
purpose of selling out to the Standard.
This would be in line with the vol icy of the
monopoly, and no doubt profitable to the
Western and Atlantic people, whose busi
ness, I think, is on the decline. If it were as
large and remunerative as formerly, I do not
think Mr. Craig would willingly part with his
interest He is not that kind ot a man. I
think the full story will come ont in a short
The fear of a boom in values of real estate
seems to be on the wane. A gentleman who
has studied the subject pretty thoroughly said
yesterday: "Early in the season the danger of
inflation was Imminent. Quite a number of
owners, both in the city and suburbs, who bad
offered to sell at definite prices, canceled the
orders they bad given to their agents and with
drew their properties from the market, their
object being to hold them for an advance. This
was succeeded by a lull in business, showing
that buyers could not be coerced. It was the
same as saying: 'If we can't buy property at a
fair valuation we won't buy at all.' In the face
of this determination owners could do nothing
but back down, or rather abandon the idea of
ballooning. This they did, with a few ex
ceptions, and business at once revived.
"Buyers are more liberal than they get credit
for. They recognize the fact as completely as
owners that the city is growing: that land suit
able for building purposes is becoming scarcer
every day, and that as a legitimate result,
values must advance, but they object, and with
reason, too, to being required to pay extrav
agantly for contemplated improvements, such
as parks and electric and cable roads. They
want a share of the benefits of these comforts
and conveniences. This is reasonable, ana it is
right To sell land this year at the price it
will bring four or five years hence would give
the buyer no chance at all to make anything
out of his investment. Owners seem to be
coming to an appreciation of this injustice,
and are more and more confining their de;
minds to reasonable limits. In my opinion all
danger of undue inflation has gone by. Values,
of course, will continue to enhance, but not
out of proportion to the growth of tbe city and
expansion of business."
The influence of the proposed Scbenley Park
on adjoining property is already being felt, as
shown by an offer made a few days ago to
Messrs. Black & Baird for the entire balance of
the Lloyd plan, situated on Dithridge street.
It was wanted for speculation. The offer was
refused, the owners declining to sell to any
but persons who wonld improve.
Since the offer for the entire tract was made
fonr of tbe lots have been sold, and four fine
stone residences will be erected upon them
next spring. This property is especially desir
able from the fact of its close proximity to the
main entrance to the park.
High prices at borne in consequence of a
short supply and a large yield abroad have com
bined to rednce tbe exports of apples to Europe.
The shipments so far this season, indeed,
amount to hardly more than one-third as much
as last year. All authorities report the crop
exceedingly light and of a decidedly poor
quality, except in Maine and a few of tbe
Western States. The yield in New England,
except Maine, and New York is not more than
enongh for tbe home demand. In the West,
Missouri, Illinois and Michigan have very large
crops of good qnality apples, and they "have
been forwarding them East at a rapid rate, ex
pecting to realize on the short crops there.
Western apples are of fine quality for home
consumption, but as they are inclined to be soft
they are hardly adapted to undergo foreign
shipping, and very few are exported. Freight
rates to Liverpool are abont one-third higher
than a year ago.
Activity in cotton manufacturing continues
to be one of the most noteworthy features of
the industrial movement ot the year. While
there is little to encourage the owners of
woolen mills, the cotton factories are making
liberal profits and extending their operations.
Their record is even more gratifying than that
of the iron works of the Middle States and the
West, inasmuch as they have shown no signs
of depression at any time since January. Ad
ditional construction is the order of the day.
It is said, indeed, that 17 corporations are
either building new factories or enlarging old
This remarkable growth in the business is not
confined to the Sonth, where perhaps tbe prog
ress of recent years has been tbe most pro
nounced, nor to New England, where the in
dustry is most highly concentrated, but both
New England and the South share in the gain,
which also extends somewhat to the West.
The Eastern manufacturers acknowledge the
strength of Southern competition, but do not
consider it disastrous, or admit the possibility
of its becoming so.

Trading In Rntlroad Shares Locks Vlm-n
Threatened Enforcement of the
Mlssoarl Law Causes a
Flurry Lead Trust.
New Yobk, November 12. The stock mar
ket was more qniet to-day, except at intervals
and in spots, and tbe dealings, as a rule, were
made within narrow limits and presented little
feature of interest There were several items
of news which would have had a bearing upon
values, but they seemed to fall flat in almost
every case, and while the market for tbe
greater portion of the day had an upward ten
dency, the movements lacked vim. and outside
of a few specialties tbe final changes are gen
erally confined to small fractions.
The most prominent feature of the day was
the selling of Lead Trust by St Louis, which
became alarmed at the threatened enforce
ment of the law which was passed last winter
against Trusts, and tbe stock was forced down
about 2 per cent though a partial recovery
took place. Tbe bears, of course, helped the
decline, and the recovery was in all probability
the result of the taking of profits on the short
side. With the exception of London, which
bought freely at times of all of its favorites,
St. Louis was tbe only outside center which
traded to any extent in this market to-day.
Next to Lead Trust Richmond and West
Point attracted most attention, and both kinds
of stock changed hands, some at advances.
The Grangers were all stronger, though Bur
lington seemed nedected, and failed to move
with the others. The long-expected dividend
on Northern Pacific preferred was declared to
day, bnt the announcement failed to have any
cnect on the stock, wmch was steady throngh
out, with a slight upward tendencv. The spe
cialties were in many cases conspicuous for
8tseiigth, and Canadian Pacific, Ontario and
Western and Louisville and Nashville all made
material gains.
The market reacted from the depression of
yesterday afternoon, and opened from Jf to K
per cent higher this morning. Though tbe bears
soon made a drive at New England and forced
it off over 1 per cent; though after tbe pressure
was removed there was a full recovery. The
demonstration bad the effect of checking tbe
upward movement in the general list how
ever, and some stocks went back slichtlv for
uo uuio uc.ufc. . uw,Eooiuu was ot snort
duration, and, led by Richmond and West
Point the entire list moved up slowly, not-
nuiifiMuuiU); tuo nca.uua buuwu in 1j6AU.
Stagnation was tbe feature of tho list in the
afternoon, but Ontario and Western, Hocking
Valley and other low-pricea specialties re
lieved the monotony by sharp upward move
ments, and late In thn day tbe advance became
general, except that Chicago Gas dropped 2U
per cent on the grant to another company of
the privilege of bringing gas into Chicago.
The greater portion of this loss was afterward
made up, however.
The close was fairly active and strong, gener
ally at the best prices of the day. 1 he final
chances are almost all advances of fractions,
but Ontario and Western rose Hi, Rlohmond
and West Point preferred 1U. the common lit,
St Paul and Canada Pacine li. Jersey Centra
Louisville and Nashville and Missouri Pacific
1 per cent each, while Lead Trust is off li and

Railroad bonds were more quiet to-day, the
sales of all issues reaching only Jl,22L0e0. and
the onlv rall v antlTA lamn w -Er.u.fe....-tr.l-
leyto, which contributed. HWoeo to tie total.
The tone of the market was rather heavy, if
anything; but final changes are abont equally
divided between gains and lose which are
in bnt few cases for more than fractional
.The PoiPt financial article says: The selling
of Erie and some other stocks yesterday was
presumed to be for London account, and this,
together with the fact that in tbe last week the
Bank of England has lost 45,000 on balance,
nas led some people to expect that the Bank of
VSSd me discount would be raised on
next Thursday, and thus give the whole stock
speculation a setback. There is, however,
nothing in the London money market as yet
i?".,"11'11118 expectation. Money is easy at
et, though there are still some apprehensions
of the necessity of further shipments of gold to
the Argentine Republic But this forenoon
were was considerable Erie bought for London
account, aud the early prices in the market for
a'American stocks were higher than
closing prices here last night
it is the apathy of the American public in re
gard to railroad stocks that makes the dull mar
xet, and leaves all the active stocks lower to
day than a week ago. The decline in Lead
irnst was dne to heavy selling of St Louis
nolders, who were alarmed by the notice of the
secretory of tne State of -Missouri to all cor
porations or that State that they must comply
witn the law, passed last winter, prohibiting
any corporations from putting their stocks into
'fnst The penalty for non-compliance Is loss
or their charters. Some of the most profitable
concerns in the Lead Trust are in St Lonis, and
it looks as if they would be compelled to with
draw from the trust Nevertheless, thodecline

$3,858,276 over October, 1838.
It is stated that the Monongahela connecting

A MKETINO of stockholders of the Pittsburg
and Allegheny Bridge (Ninth street) Company
bas been called for December 2, to vote for or
against an increase of the indebtedness of the
Renters are already on the move. Quite a
number of applications for houses were made
yesterday. It is the general opinion that small
and medium-sized dwellings will be very scarce
next spring.
The belief is so general that the Central
Traction Railway will do a good business from
the start that there was quite a boom in tbe
stock yesterday. The road will be in running
order by the middle of next month, or sooner.
Investments in local bonds are large. An
officer of the Fidelity Title and Trust Company
remarked yesterday: "Some time ago there was
very little money invested in local bonds, bnt
within the past two Wfceks this has changed,
and there is a most satisfactory condition of
affairs in this line just now."
Can Be Imposed Upon Men Who Brought
These Glassworkcrs.
Washington, November 12. If the
argument made by the Treasury law officers
concerning the imported glassworkers at
Jeannette, Pa., is accepted by the Attorney
General and Secretary "Windom, and it is
decided that the glassblowers willfully
transgressed the law in contracting to take
service at Jeannette, tbe Government has
made ont a case against the men
who indnced the workmen to leave
England. If contracts were made,
the employers and agents who arranged the
contracts have rendered themselves liable
to prosecution, and, if found guilty, to tbe
imposition of the fine imposed by the con
tract labor law.
The snggestiqn made to Secretary Win
dom on Saturday may be at once approved
by Attorney General Miller, and the action
against the contractors and workihgmea
begun immediately.
Lnvrrencevllle People Flensed Over an Un
expected Flow of Water.
The citizens of Lawrenceville are In
hieh glee now on account of the at
tention of the city authorities in cleaning,
or making at least a pretense, of cleaning
Butler street. Early Monday evening a
corps of hosemen got "numerous hose in op
eration and cleaned Butler street irora end
to end for the first time, it is said, since the
Citizens' Traction line was laid. The sight
was so novel that residents stood in their
doorways and watched the proceedings with
manifestations of delight, feeling that at
last some step had been taken to remedy
the bad condition of Lawrenceville'a prin
cipal thoroughfare.

Country Produce Jobbing; Prices.
Game and ponltry are coming in freely from
the West, and uwing to soft mild weather, are
easier. Nearty poultry Is scarce. Turkeys are
particularly scarce in this vicinity. There is a
slight improvement in the demand for apples.
Sweet potatoes are firm at quotations. Irish
potatoes quiet Florida oranges are in good
supply and fair demand at quotations. Grapes
are slow and their end is near. Tbe sales of
creamery bntter at Elgin yesterday reached
33.300 pounds, at prices rangingfrom 25 to 25ic
This brings the lay-down price of the bestl
gln creamery close to 27c in Pittsburg. Mild
weather is all that keeps eggs from another ad
vance. The first sharp weather will, no doubt,
send them up. Fresh country eggs are hard to
secure at any price.

Coffee options are drifting upward, and pack
ages promise to-rise at an early day. An ad
vance in roasted coffees was generally looked
for by dealers to-day, but expectations lalled
to materialize. Sugars are up c since Satur
day and markets are firm at the advance. The
movement of general groceries is unusually
active, but prices remain unchanged. New
