TIDI BUTCHER CATTLE ADVANCED.
Light Eeceipts of Sheep and Lambs and
HOGS DRIFTING DOWN EVERYWHERE
orncE or PirrsBUKO dispatch, 1
WedsksdAT, November 15. VeSQ. j
The run ot cattle on Monday was 110
loads against 130 loads the week before. In
the receipts were 8 to 10 loads of very good
stock from Ohio. One load ol steers run
ning from 1,400 to 1,500 pounds, from Knot
county, O., was nearer prime than anything
received at these yards for months past.
The price paid was $4 55. A few loads sold
nt $4 25. A large proportion of the offer
ings were coarse half-fatted stock weighing
from 1,000 to .1,300 pounds, and this grade
managed to hold up to last week's nrices,
Owing; to the LIsbt Rnn.
Nice tidy butcher cattle being very scarce
were 10 to 15c higher than last week. There
was a better Inquiry for good heavy feeders
weighlnE LOCO to L200 pounds than for some
weeks past, and prices were a shade higher;
common stackers are hard to sell at old prices.
Buyers were few. Joseph Myers was the only
buyer of export cattle, and his demands were
met by a half dozen loads at a range of ES a to
The fancy stock from Knox county, Ohio,
was bought by Trauerman 4 McAuleyatH
with a Tiew to retailing to our homo butchers.
Prospects are, therefore, fair that better beef
than usual will be on our stalls for the next
Taken Up Quickly.
There was a good supply and demand for
fresh cows. First-class milkers are in good de
mand. Eastern buj ers are quick to take up
anything desirable In this line. There has
been ho Monday for a month or two past when
cattle were so promptly taken as this week.
Yards were well cleaned up early in the day,
and haTe not for a lent: time been so bare as at
this time. Much more smooth, tidy butch
er stock than was offered would hare round
ready sale at 10 to 15c better prices than they
commanded last week.
Sheep nod Lambs.
Receipts were light and markets strong at an
advance of 15c to 20c over last week's prices.
Some dealers report the advance still greater.
Last week shippers were forced to unload at a
loss, prices being oft on account of heavy re
ceipts and unfavorable reports frOm Eastern
markets. The loss of last week has been more
than recovered. Such Is life. A week ago
markets were heavy and dull at reduced prices.
Kow everything desirable is promptly taken at
a sharp advance.
Hoes In Good Snpply.
Supplies were large fully 25 loads larger than
at this time a week ago. Markets have ruled
Blow, and the drift has been steadily toward a
lower level. At Buffalo S4 was the outside price
yesterday, and at Cincinnati 3 9a Here $4 10
was the outside rate. One of our leading pack
ers received advices from Chicaeo this morning
that receipts of hogs there were oveH0.000bead
to-day, and an equal number yesterday. The
bears have the innings in the nog markets at
McCall ofc Co.' Weekly Review.
The supply of cattle has been only fair,
mostly of an inferior grade, and the market
ruled slow and a shade lower on common to
medium, while good to prime cattle sold read
ily at a shade higher prices. We eive the f ol

Si en dr.
CHICAGO Trading was more active to-day,
ahd there was more life afa& animation to the
market The feeling developed was bullish,
and the short interest manifested more inclina
tion to cover than has characterised their
operations for some days. There was strong
buying for May from the start, on the theory
that tho premium between December and May
would widen out again, and the market showed
less appearance of manipulation in December,
as noted by the widening of the premium from
SJcto3K32go instead of coming close to
gether. The shortage for May is considered a
large one, and operators were rather more in
clined to cover, Judging from the action of the
market to-diy. Many traders predict a sti'J
further widening out between tho December
and May futures.
The Northwest was reported is having sold
on big receipts, but there evidently waSa
Change of sentiment in tho local crowd. This
was influenced some by the reported shortage
as noted yesterday in the Russian crops.
European markets, too, were quoted steady,
With the tone of private cables, if anything, a
little more encouraging to holders. It was re
ported that export bids from the other side had
been advanced 161K6 per bushel for Duluth
wheat over the bids of the previous day. Re
ceipts in the Northwest continue liberal. The
market opehed strong and KKC higher than
yesterday's closing, advanced llKe for both
December and Mav, and closed lo hlcher for
December ahd IQIKc higher for May than yes
terday. The market just before the close de
veloped a llttlo more strength in December
than In May.
Corn A moderate trade was reported within
a range of Xc, and the feeling developed
was quite firm. There was no outside news of
importance received that had any apparent ef
fect on values, which were governed almost ex
clusively by local influence, the chief of which
was the fair purchases Of November, Decem
ber and May by a prominent Speculator. The
speculative market opened at about the closing
prices of yesterday, was firm and gradually ad
vanced Ko. showing the most strength,
eased off a little, ruled firmer and closed J
Jc higher than yesterday.
Oats were fairly active and stronger, and a
higher range of prices was recorded. Outside
prices were fairly maintained at the close. The
advance of Jfc was due to the receipts be
ing below estimates. Tho selling was mainly
by two large operators, but they were unable
to prevent the advance.
In mess pork trading was fair and prices
averaged lower. A reduction of 67Kc was
submitted to early, hut during the latter part
of the session a steadier feeling prevailed ana
tbedeeil e was recovered.
In lard not much interest was manifested,
and the feeling was easier. Prices rnled about
2)ic lower, and the market closed quiet.
In short rib sides there was a little more life
manifested and tiading u as more active, though
chiefly tot January delivery. Prices ruled 2
5c lower, and the market closed steady at tue

AN IMPORTANT IXSUBANCE DECISION
Brief mention has been made in TflE Dis
patch of the extension of the Uononga
hela Connecting Bailroad to Glenwood, in
regard to which additional information was
obtained yesterday. Although the road
has been laid out only as far as Glenwood,
that it not its objective point. It is the in
tention to extend it to Braddock. The road
starts at Laughlin's furnaces, and extends
down the river as far as Boho and up to
Frankstown, connecting With the Linden Bteel
Works, lioorhead, McLean A Co.'s works,
Pennsylvania Tube Works and the works of
the Elba Iron and Bolt Company, giving these
establishments switching facilities with the
Lake Erie, Pennsylvania, Baltimore and Ohio
and Junction Kailroads. It is in th6 fullest
sense a common carrier for those railroad
Heretofore the great Iron plants on the
north side of the Monongahela have Men lim
ited to one railroad which, in the absence of
competition, had It in its power to make its
owfi rates. The Connecting road will not only
afford a healthful and necessary competition,
but greatly increase the facilities for Shipment,
and stimulate industry in a district which has
always labored under the disadvantages inci
dent to oppressive railroad charges.
Tho recent purchase by Mr. Laughlin of
about sir acres in Glenwood was with a view to
seenring the right of way for the Connecting
Railroad at that place. Ground not needed for
the road will be sold. This purchase will bring
manufacturing sites at Glenwood into active
demand, as It will insure & much-desired addi
tion to the shipping facilities of the place, and
Consequently competitive rates, the want of
which has kept that section of the city in the
background. That the new road will stimulate
industry may be Seen In the fact that a large
manufacturing site adjoining the old Glenwood
Steel Works was sold a few days ago to a gen
tleman who will bnild a f onndry on it at Once.
This will be a valuable addition to the Indus
tries of the Twenty-third Ward.
It is thought there will be no great difficulty.
In securing the right ot way to Braddock by
purchase or otherwise.
A decision of some interest to those inter
ested in co-operative or mutual benefit insur
ance companies has just been rendered by the
general term of the New York Supreme Court
(Fifth Judicial Department) in the case of
Bhay versus National Benefit Society. It ap
peared that the plaintiffs husband fire years
ago took ont a policy ot insurance on his life
in the defendant company for 310,000. He paid
his dues and assessment promptly until Sep
tember, 1888, Wh&h be failed to pay an assess
ment after due notification within the time
prescribed by the contract of insurance. The
defendant company, however, in common with
other similar companies, permitted the issue of
a second official notice to members "In lapse,"
advising delinquent members that If they
Would pay arrears within 30 days after default
they would be reinstated to membership,
though providing that the company shontd not
be liable to the delinquent or any beneficiary
named in a policy for any claim to benefits that
may have accrued while he was In lapse.
A second notice of this kind was received by
the plaintiffs husband, and payment bf arrears
was made to the company after he had been
taken sick with the disease of which he died.
The company refused to pay the policy on the
ground that the last payment was made by the
defendant with full knowledge of the excep
tional risk he was Imposing on the company,
and that he was guilty of fraud, which inval
idated the policy. The trial court however,
held that the effect of the company's second
notice was to extend the period of insurance 30
days without regard to the delinquent's phys
ical condition, and that payment of the arrears
within the time specified would bind the com
pany, even it made b? the beneficiary after
the defendant's death. This judgment has
jnst been affirmed by the general term of the
The Commissioner of the General Land Office
recently rendered a decision ih the ease of
Mary Barr, formerly Wasson, a resident of the
Mitchell, Dakota, land district This is one Of
the most unique land cases on record. It ap
pears from the testimony that in July. 1SS2,
Mrs. Barr, then a resident of the State of Iowa,
went to Dakota on a visit and while there took
up 80 acres adjoining a tract then recently en
tered by Michael Barr. She purchased a house
and had it moved on her claim, broke one acre
and made other improvements. At that time,
sht Says in her testimony she had no intention
of marrying Mf. Barr, but later they married,
when they moved their houses up close to
gether on the line and Bodded them up all around
on the outside, making One house; that they
were then married; that Barr put his bed
store, table, etc, In his house and she put her
bed, stove, table, etc, in hers; that there is no
means of communication between the two dif
ferent parts of the house except by going out
side,' each having an outside door; that she
acted in good faith in making the entry, not
knowing Michael Barr at the time, and having
no understanding with the Barr family; that
she complied with the homstead law fully.
Mrs. Barr's claim is rejected on the ground
that a husband and wife cannot maintain
separate residences at the same time, and In
the same house, so that each, by virtno of such
residence, may perfect an entry under the
homestead law. It is said that there are. a num
ber of cases in the general land office similar in
all important respects to the case of Mrs. Barr.

The weather was bearish yesterday, and So
were the stockbrokers. Sales at both calls
were 43 shares. Electric, Philadelphia Gas and
Central Traction were the only active stocks.
Philadelphia Gas was the only thing 'that
Ecored an advance. Electric and Central Trac
tion were lractionally lower. There was no
pressure to buy or sell, and, with the single ex
ception noted, the tendency was downward.

not bs a barrel of oil above ground, unless new

there Is no present probability."

Weak at Bottom Prices The Traits
Come Forward as a Disturbing
Element In the Market.
New Yoek, November 13. The stock market
jras weaker again to-day, and the trusts came
into prominence onCo more, furnishing an ele
ment of disturbance whereby the general list
was depressed with further, losses. There was
little change in the temper of the market this
morning, and nono was of a character to affect
values. The bullish feeling, with a covering of
shorts, led to a strong opening, first prices being
generally from to per cent higher than last
evening's figures. The Improvement was met
bv renewed weakness In Cotton Oil. which was
sold heavily by operators who had Information,
which they considered trustworthy, reflecting
upon the reports of the business done by the
trust, and that the profits reported were much
smaller than they were said to be.
This Information was met by denials from
inside parties, who said that the trust had
met with no new obstacles, and was in a pros
perous condition, lhe selling continued, how
ever, and an extreme decline of over 3 per cent
was scored in the stock, while the other trusts
sympathized to some extent, all being lower,
and lead still remained active. Atchison halt
ed in Its upward course, and was sold on the
opposition developed among the English bond
holders to the plan of reorganization. The
story was not good, bnt a repetition of advices
received sometime ago, and the stock remained
quiet though it ran off about 1 per cent This
weakness affected-Missouri Pacific and Bur
lington to a limited extent as likely to suffer
in case of Atchison going Into the hands of a
receiver, The other Grangers, and especially
St Paul and Northwestern, were strong, the
report coming from Chicago that soma of the
large operators at that center were again
ranged on the bull 6lde.
Louisville and Nashville was also a strong
feature, and among the specialties Ontario and
Western on the expectation of a reduction in
Its capital stock continued strone within nar
row limits on a large buines3 for that stock.
Richmond ana West Point was less active, the
baying supposed to be for the purpose of con
trol at thetnext meeting. The afternoon saw
some improvement in the list, though Jfcwas
confined to fractional amounts outside of
Tennessee Coal. The raid was continued In
the last few minutes of business, however, and
the market finally closed aotlve and weak at
about the lowest prices of the day. Almost'

Railroad bonds, were quiet and irregular, but
were strong in the forenoon, weakening In
sympathy with stocks later In the day, and the
Kansas and Texas Issues, the Toledo, An Ar
bor and North Michigan, and some others
which scored advances in the forenoon lost all
of the improvement toward the close. The
Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe bonds were
weaker on the opposition to the Atchison
The PotVt financial article says! The sud
den activity In Richmond Terminal grows out
of a coming struggle for control at the next
election, when there is likely to be another en
deavor to make a revolution in the administra
tion of the property. The dissatisfaction of
some of tho largest stockholders of the Rich
mond Terminal OompanyJs expressed to the
effect that the present 'administration has
failed to compel a harmonious and at the same
time an economic management of the
running arrangements between the three
great properties controlled by the Ter
minal Company, viz.! the Richmond and
Danville, the East Tennessee and tne Central
of Georsia; that there is a prevailing policy on
the part of the several companies to carry
freights over circuitous routes in order to
make a show of large gross earnings instead of
oy more direct routes that would be available
if the lines were operated as a unit controlled
by the Terminal Company rather than of three
The dissatisfied party represent at least one
third of the capital stock, and, it is understood,
will endeavor to elect Mr. Calvin S. Brice to
the Presidency. Incidentally, It may also be
Stated that Mr. George H. Scott has declined to
continue as President of the Richmond and
Danville, though ho will probably be Intimate
ly connected with the management

IK explanation of the omission to call a meet
ing of stockholders of the Pittsbure;, Allegheny
and Manchester Bailwayto reorganize on the
basis of an electric and traction line, Mr.
George B. Hill said yesterday: "There has
been no necessity to call a meeting of the stock
holders. As soon as we are granted tho rights
we ask from Allegheny Councils there will be
meeting of tho stockholders called, and a full
explanation of all matters made to them, but
for the present I can seo no reason for such a
meeting. Tbere Is no disposition, however, to
keep from the stockholders anything done or
intended to be donot when the time comes a
meeting will be called.
Rumor, accompanied with conslJerabe full
ness of detail, was circulated on Fonrth ave
nue yesterday, that the stock yards at Torrens
were to he abolished, this being an improve
ment on former stories of their removal! bnt It
was subsequently denied by an official of the
Pennsylvania Railroad, as will be seen by refer
ence to the local columns of Tub Dispatch.
In connection with this rumor Was another to
the effect that the railroad shops at Torrens
were to bo removed to Walls station next
spring. This was also denied by the authority
referred to. Rumors such as these, affecting
large areas of real estate, should always be
taken with salt To build upon them would be
to imitate the foolish man who trusted to the
sand for a foundation for his house.
