WEEK'S WOEK AT THE LIBERTY. IAEDS
Office of PrrrsBtrao Dispatch, 1
Tutjrsdat. Novemberl4.1SS9. J
There has been a steady upward drift of
green coffee for the past week, and by all
rales of trade packages should be advanced,
as they are now relatively too low. The ad
vance this week in green coffee is close to 1
cent per pound, and the roasted article was
relatively too low before to advance.
Several of Our leading jobbers have ex
pressed surprise tbat there has been no rise
in packages. It is in the air that we are
bound to have an advance. The average im
portation of coffee in the United States of
late years amounts to 600,000,000 pounds. Oar
chief source of supply is Brazil.
Our coffee hills to Brazil amount in round
numbers to 550,000,0(10 annually. It seems that
British vessels are cringing these South Ameri
can products to American shores. A leading
"There is not 5 per cent of the entire amount
of coffee consumed in this country, which in
volves the consumption of more than half of
the entire product of South America, that
reaches these shores except through English
The Flour Situation.
The flour situation shows a better tone than
for some weeks past. Markets have evidently
been down to bed-rock for some time, and the
outlook is brightening. One of our leading
jobbers received advices to-day from Minnesota
that bakers' flour could not now be placed here
at less than 15c advance per barrel on lowest
rates touched a few weeks ago. The lowest
lay-down price here for the best spring patents
in wood oy cauoaa lots is so in.
The advanced freight rates of 5c per barrel
between Minneanolis and Chicago will go into
effect on November 20. The chance in freight
rates was made with a view to closing of lake
An inspection of the accompanying report of
the week's transactions at East Liberty yards
reveals the fact that receipts of cattle, both
through and local are very much lighter than
last week. .Through receipts are 1,060 head less
than last week and 1.890 less than the week be
fore. Local receipts are 400 head less than last
An Improved Quality.
The quality of this week's supplies was an
improvement on anything for a number of
weeks past. Markets for tidy butcher stock
weighing 1,200 to 1,300 pounds were strong
at an advance of 10 to 15c per pound.
Good heavy feeders were also in better de
mand than for some time past, and prices
showed some improvement on rates- ot last
Receipts of sheep and lambs' were precisely
the same this w eek as last and 100 head greater
than the previous week. Markets were acth e
at an advance of 10 to 15c over prices of last
The supply of hogs has been very heavy all
the week and markets are slow at a sharp de
cline. At Chicago there has been an average
of 40,000 received daily for the past three days.
The weather being unfavorable, on top of
heavy receipts, the drift has been steadily
downward- Outside rates at Chicago to-day
are $3 90 and at Liberty 4, and at these figures

Not only are small dwelling houses scarce,
but the demand for downtown storerooms
snitable for the retail trade is far beyond
the supply and will increase with the ap
proach of the holiday season. A Fourth
avenue real estate dealer has a number of
orders on his books for this class of rooms
which he is unable to fill. This trade is be
ing driven away from Pittsburg for want of
"There Is matter here for capitalists and
builders to think over.
Onr enterprising neighbor down the river,
Steubenville, is keeping step to the march of
improvement all along the line. Building is
active, and business and dwelling bouses some
of them costly are going np on almost every
street. The electric road is working to a
charm, and is already earning enongh money
to pay dividends. The oil excitement is very
great, and almost everybody is dabbling in it,
one way or another. Lands are being leased
right and left at steep figures. By spring, it is
thought, they will have been pretty well
picked up. The coal interest, which has been
neglected tor some time, is being revived, and
new mines are being opened and the output of
old ones increased.
Bteubenville is one of the oldest towns in
Ohio. It takes its name from Fort Steuben,
which, in the early settlement of the country,
was erected there to protect settlers from
depredations of the Indians.
No one who reads the sales of real estate, as
printed in the city papers from day to day, can
have a doubt ol the activity of this great in
terest. The demand is not confined to any
particular district of the city and suburbs but
embraces all of them, and is for all kinds of
property, ranging from large business sites to
those for small dwellings. Values are steady
and show no disposition toward enhancement
beyond such as naturally follows Increase of
population and consequently greater demand.
Adherence to this policy will insure an active
market for years to come.
As affording some idea of the immensity of
the real estate business in Pittsburg a Fourth
avenue firm stated yesterday tbat they had
made 999 sales in less than three years the
bulk of them within 18 months. Several other
firms have done nearly as well in the same
There is an old saying that a shoemaker
should stick to his last, the sense of which is
that a man should follow the business to which
he is best adapted, and not jump from one
thing to another, mastering none. The truth
of this was illustrated yesterday by a gentle
man, wbo said:
"I have made a good many business mistakes
in my time. The fact is I lacked perseverance.
I couldn't see it at the time, but now I can.
Ten years ago I was doing a prosperous busi
ness as a cattle dealer at the Bast Liberty
stockyards. I got tired of It, however, and
hearing of sudden fortunes made in petroleum,
I tried my luck on the floor of the Exchange.
I guess I didn't understand the business, for I
soon lost everything I had. Then I sold my
membership and quit. Next I tried the insur
ance business, btmfindlng it impossible to make
both ends meet 1 Had to give it up.
"I am now looking for an opening of some
kind, and if I find it you may rest assured I
will stick to it so long as there is a button on
The iron market has undergone no particular
change since last week. There is less rush and
a slight falling off in orders, owing to the late
ness of the season, but there continues to be
great activity in the trade, the mills having all
they can do, and requests for early delivenes
are imperfectly complied with.
Prices vary in no essential respect from that
of last week, and there is a disposition to keep
them about on the present level; but there may
be a slight rise after January 1. This will de
pend altogether, however, upon the course that
coke will take. In view of this contingency the
mills are not making prices for next year's de
livery. Quotations on leading descriptions are

an increase of the capital stock. It is under
stood the capital will be increased from $400,0001

Trade in England continues very active, and

In Ontario a new insect has appeared, the
flour moth (ephestia kuhniella), which threat
ens serious trouble and injury to millers and all
whose business it is to handle flour. The On
tario Board of Health has issued a pamphlet
containing a description and cuts of the moth,
an account of its ravages, and advice as to tho
best measures for its extermination. The
moth, it is said, came in with (milled goods im
ported as children's food from some port of the
Mediterranean, of whose coast it is a dreaded
scourge. Its first appearance was in the month
of March, 18S9, when a single moth was seen
flying about near an Ontario milk In July the
moths and worms became si numerous that the
mill was shut down.
Later the work of taking remedial measures,
however, fell to the Ontario Government. Mr.
Blue, the Deputy Minister of Agriculture for
Ontario, visited the mill and called in Dr.
Bryce, Secretary of the Provincial Board ot
Health, who dealt thoroughly with the ques.
tion of prevention. He advocates "a rigorous
quarantine of grains coming from Mediter
ranean ports," and advises every miller to be
come thoroughly acquainted with the appear
ance and habits of this moth, and to destroy
any that he sees.

A spurt in transcontinental was one of the
special features of tho day, bnt the Northern
Pacific did not respond, remaining dull and to
night are only slightly higher. The Grangers
were bought freely by the Chicago party,, and
tho earnings of St. Panl for October are said
to make a very favorable exhibit and it was
generally believed that the influential Chicago
operators are again purcnaslng it. J.ne otners
kept pace, with Rock Island specially promi
nent in tho upward movement. Among the
low-priced shares were Denver, Texas ana Ft.
Worth, Ontario and Western, and Norfolk and
Western preferred, which showed marked
strength. The stock of .the Laclede Gas Com
pany was traded in npon the board for the first
time to-day, ranging between 21 and 20K.
Opening prices were generally from yto
per cent better than last night's figures, and the
list, though meeting with some opposition from
the bears, moved up slowly and the trading
throughout was devoid of special feature, the
upward movement meeting with no setback ex
cept in a few stocks, -and these interruptions
were short-lived and generally insignificant
The close was fairly active and strong at about
the highest prices of tho day. The final prices
show uniform gains throughout the list, ana
Sugar and Oregon Transcontinental are up 1
each, Tennessee Coal a like amount, Jersey
Central Louisville and Nashville Rock
Island, Denver, Texas and Ft Worth, Jacka
wanna, Norfolk and Westernpref erred and St
Paul i each, Consolidated Gas 1, Hocking
Valley and Canada Pacific 1 per cent each, and
the others fractional amounts.
Railroad bonds showed the same broaden.
ing of Interest as stocks, but there was a small
aggregate to the business done, and sales of all
issues reached only $1,523,000, though the num
ber of issues traded in was nearly twice that of
yesterday. Tho Chicago, Burlington and
Qulncy 4s were the only active bonds.with sales
of $100,000. The market failed to show the
steady strength which marked tbe dealings in
shares, and several material losses were sus
tained in different portions of the list. These,
however, were generally in inactive issnes, and
were more thau connterbalanced by advances
which are rather in a majority to-night The
general list is but slightly changed.

Stock Broken Confine Their Operations to
Tery 5-mnIl tioti.
For the most part stocks ere too high for
buyers yesterday, and the result was a peddling
sort of a marker, nothing bnt small jags being
handled, and these to a very limited extent
The total sales at both calls were 110 shares.
Central Traction was np a fraction, selling
on call at 31 and privately at Zi. Philadelphia
Gas was a trifle n eaker, as were all the other
natural gas stocks. For Pittsbure. Alleghenv
and Manchester Railway,223 was offered and 300
asked. This difference could not be bridged
over. Holders were encouraged by the pros
pect of a meeting of stockholders next Tues
day to settle the question of the kind of motive
power to be used.
There were no offers for switch and signal,
and a very light demand for electric. There is
nothing new in these properties to their disad
vantage, and a revival of interest may be ex
pected at any time. Details follow:

New York, November 11 The stock, mar
ket was quiet to-day, though the dealings ex
tended to an unusually large number of shares,
and the temper, from opening to close, was
moderately bullish, with no marked demand
for stocks, while the shorts covered to some
extent. The movement of prices after the first
half hour was steadily, though slowly, upward
until well in the afternoon, when the buying
assumed larger proportions and the rise was ac
celerated. The distribution of the business
done was more even than for two months, and
everything, down to the specialties, which are
only dealt in from time to time, showed
some improvement. The Southern stocks were
the most noticeable feature, thongh Richmond
and West Point seemed to drag after its sharp
advance of the past few days, and tbe Grangers
followed, with marked movements in the spe
cialties. Tho trusts, with the exception of Cot
ton Oil, were not active, though they followed
the general market in making material ad
vances. There was plenty of Cotton Oil for
sale at about 32, and it failed to get much above
ongar was toe oniy one Which made any
material nnai auvance, and that was
tivelv dull, throughout the day. Louisville
and Nashville was in pood demand for some
time, but the insiders tookliold of'lt after it I

MISS LYDIA MORGAN,
Whom 20 doctors said must die of consumption.
Her disease was caused by catarrh. She says:
"I had ft short backing cough, tightness in tbe'
chest, short breath, and I felt tired all the time.
As I grew weaker I suffered with those terrible
night sweats. My father took me to 20 phys
icians, who said I could not be cured. I doc
tored with many physicians, but got so better.
After 14 years of suffering I began treatment
with the physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspep
sia Institute, 323 Penn avenue, to whom I owe
my recovery. -My cough is gone; I have no
dizziness, ringing in the ears, headache or night
sweats any more. The pain and soreness in my
stomach have left me; my food digests well, so
that now no gas forms In my stomach. My
throat used to be so sore I could hardly swal
low; that is cured. I feel well and strong, and
why should I sot praise these doctors for thus
saving me from such an untimely deatbf
