Fridat. November 15, 18S9. J
This week's weather has been unpro
pilious to market basket trade. In fruit
and vegetable lines there are no changes.
Domestic grapes are still on the stalls, bnt
demand is slow at old rates. There is a full
supply of Florida oranges. Tropical fruits
are quiet for this season of the year. The
butter situation is practically the same as
last Saturday. Elgin creamery is a shade
higher, but the advance has had no effect on
retail rates. There is a great scarcity of
fresh country eggs. If earbr poultry is also
scarce, but full supplies in both lines are
coming in from the "West and there is no
approach to a famine.
Plenty of Gome and 2Ients.
Game is coming in freely, and soft
weather for a few days past has had a de
pressing influence on markets.
Staple meats change not. The prices
which rnled a year ago still prevail, thongh
live stock are much lower. A Diamond
Market butcher said to-dav that there was
much more in his business when he paid 7c to So
per pound for beeves than now when the cost
is 4c to 5s per pound. The offals, hides and
boiling meat do not bring half the price of a
few jcars ago, but consumers of tenderloins
and choire meats mut nay the same old rates.

better this neck than last.

MAEKETS BY TOffl.
A Moderate Dullness In Wheat, With
December and Mar Fractionally
Stroneer Corn and Oats Quiet
Pork DnII and Strong;.
Chicago Wheat There was a moderate
trade in a speculative way to-day, and no im
portant changes were developed in prices.
Operators were rather at sea which course to
pursue, and inclined to await developments.
Large flooctraders were doing bnt little, and
outside business was not large. A prominent
trader, whose trading of late has made him con
snicuous, bought and sold, and his trading ap
parently was not confined to any one side.
European markets were qnoted steady and firm
through private sources. Tbe first board dis
patch reported wheat tending down, but the
closing dispatch was firmer. The heavy clear
ances yesterday from the Atlantic seaboard
markets had a strengthening effect. Domestic
markets were steady early, then easier, bat gen
erally closed firm and slightly higher.
The movement in the Northwest continues
on a liberal scale, and as yet does not show any
noticeable signs of letting up. In the winter
wheat markets the receipts have fallen off
somewhat, and movement is rather light. Re
ceipts at 11 points footed up 850,455 bushels and
shipments from tbe same were 660,539 bushels.
The market opened steady, then prices receded
Wc. aiterward advanced with some fluctuations,
2c for December and c for May, closing
lie higher for December and c higher for
May than yesterday.
Corn A moderate trade was reported and
the feeling manifested was easier, though
prices did not vary materially from those estab-
nsnea towara tne close 01 yesterdays sessiun.
The principal influence to affect the view of
operators was the lower temperature and more
favorable weather for the new crop. The
speculative market opened at about the closing
prices of yesterday, fluctuated within a Jc
range and closed about the same as yesterday.
Oats were quiet with most of the trading in
May. An easier feeling prevailed, but price
changes were confined to a narrow range. A
large operator was the principal trader and
bought abont 250.000 bushels of May at 22c
Mess Pork Very little business was trans
acted. Prices were steady on all deliveries.
Lard Offerings were small and tbe demand
was only fair and chiefly for November and
January delivery. Prices were advanced 5gTX
on tbe former, but other deliveries were steady.
Shipping demand moderate and refiners back-
hhort Rib Sides Very little attention was
paid to the market. Prices exhibited very little

Thomas Street to be Improved at an

A VIGOROUS KICK FE0JI OAKLAND.
An English Expert Tells Something Kew
Abont the Baku Oil Wells.
SUPPLY OP COKE K0T EQUAL TO DEMAND
A petition is in circulation for the signa
tures of property holders interested for the
grading, paving and sewering of Thomas
street, from Boulevard Place to the city
line. The street will be 100 feet wide, and
have flagstone pavements.
There is no donbt the improvement will
be made in tbe spring, as all the property
holders directly affected are in favor of it.
The cost will be between S300.000 and 400,000.
Considerable complaint Is made by persons
residing in the vicinity of Atwood and Boquet
streets, Oakland, of the apparently unneces
sary delay in completing the improvement of
the thoroughfare first mentioned. It has been
practically impassable for teams for more than
a month, and is preventing the completion of a
number of dwellings at the foot of the street.
A gentleman who lives ont there remarked
yesterday: "I can see no reason why this work
should hang fire. Abont two squares have
been completed in the last month, leaving only
abont one square unfinished. This should be
oompleted in two weeks, at the farthest. If not
pnshed vigorously, and at once, the probability
is tbe work will have to go over till next
This would be a great disappointment to tbe
citizens, as, in addition to other inconveniences
which It would impose upon them, it would
delay the building of tbe electric railroad,
which they are anxious to see In operation."
Tbe oil wells of Baku formed the subject of
interesting statements in tbe course of a lec
ture upon "The Oil Wells of the World," de
livered at Newcastle-on-Tyne, England, a few
days ago by Mr. Charles Marvin. Rumors, he
said, had latterly been in circulation that Baku
was drying up. So far as he Knew, Bakn bad
been going to "dry np" for the last ten years.
At any rate, he was continually seeing state
ments to that effect in tbe newspapers, ana he
was frequently receiving letters from mer
chants asking him whether it was really true
that Baku had "busted." His reply to them had
been a reply based upon facts. And with re
gard to tbe facts npon which he had based his
ntMlmtfi thla finsaMnn Af h,i Tlalm "hnatrt?"
he might say that they were very simple. Baku
contained an area of 1, GOO square miles of oil-
bearing territory. Up to the present moment
only five square miles had been at all devel
oped. That left a very laree marein for devel
opment. On that small area of five square miles,
up to the present moment, 600 wells had been
bored. Then again, pointed out Mr. Marvin,
out of these 600 wells at Baku, tbe deepest did
not extend lower than about 850 feet, while the
average depth it about 500 feet. On tbe other
hand, the wells in America bad a depth aver
aging 1,500 feet, and tbey sometimes ran down
to 2,500 feet. Bo they would see that the Baku
people had a considerable margin for extend
ing their wells before tbey reached the point at
tained by the wells of the United States.
The cbief petroleum adviser to the Russian
Government had, Mr. Marvin continued, been
staying with him within the last fortnight.
This gentleman, who bad come straight from
Bakn, assured him that so far from there being
any danger whatever of Bakn drying up within
tbe next few generations, tbe amount of oil
was so copious that in order to prevent more
waste the Russian Government had forbidden
boring outside the five-mile plateau. Refer
ence was made by Mr. Marvin to the origin of
petroleum, Prof. Mendelejeffs theory being
explained. If Mendelejeffs theory be correct,
nrged Mr. Marvin, petroleum will not cease
nntil the molten interior of tbo earth begins to
lose its power of converting water into gas and
of driving it to the surface.
Tbe coke trade continues to improve, and
gradually tbe car supply is getting better.
Prices are kept at SI 75 per ton for furnace
coke, but large amounts are shipped on special
orders at a much higher figure. Long contracts
are not desired, operators preferring to supply
the market at SI 75 and take advantage of any
thing better that may come. It is deemed wise
not to force the price to a much higher figure
until after tbe expiration of the present agree
ment between the miners and cokers and
operators, and until the adoption of a perma
nent basis for a year. Last week's shipments
show an increase of 19,170 tons over those of
tbe week previous. Tbe total shipments last
week were 7.300 cars, or 131,400 tons, and tbe
week previous the total shipments were 6,235
cars, or 112,230 tons.
The output last week was distributed as fol
lows: To points west of Pittsburg. 4,100 cars;
to Pittsburg and river points, 1,550 cars; to
points east of Pittsburg, L650 cars. The supply
is not eqnal to the demand, yet every oven in
the region is in operation.
A local trade journal says that at the Bunola
mines on tbe Monongahela, piles are being
driven to extend a sort of abutment into tbe
river, upon which a steam elevator is to be
built, arranged for loading slack from boat to
cars, and having a capacity of 60 cars per day,
siding for that number of cars being put in by
the McKeesport and Bellevernon Railroad. It
appears that there is a growing demand for
slack for tbe mills of the lake cities, which
could not be supplied from boats and barges
loaded at river tipples, owing to expense of
transfer to freight cars. Dean t Co.. of Pitts
burg, in the construction of this elevator, ex
pect to overcome this source of expense to a
certain extent, at least so far as to make rail
shipment of slack possible and profitable.

The stock brokers evidently were not loaded
for business yesterday, as very little was done.
Holders were slow in offering and bidders were
disposed to wait and watch for cheap stuff. Tbe
sales ol all stocks traded in were 225 shares.
The strongest property on tbe list was Pitts
burg, Allegheny and Manchester Hallway,

A Qnlet Day In Oil With No Radical Change
There was less noise and a smaller volume of
business at the Oil Exchange yesterday than
on the previous day. Bulls were less confident
and bears more hopeful. This caused a weak
feeling, which prevailed more or less through
out the session.
Tbe market opened at SI 10, sold down to
SI 09 recovered to 51 10 tbe highest of the
day, fell oft to 81 0 reacted to the highest
point and closed at SI 10 bid. The exchanges
worked very closely together, the same quota

closed the highest. Trading was licht
Field news was scarcely mentioned, and had
no appreciable effect on prices. The time has
gone by for a single well, no matter how large
its output, to cause a frenzy of exciterdont.
Developments are regarded as incidents, not as
arbiters, or the trade. Thursday's clearances
were 1,100.000 barrels.
Manmngton, W. Va., advices were to this
effect: Drilling at the Hamilton well has been
checked by heavy spurts of oil and the work is
going on slowly. Four new wells have been
located and work will be begun at once. There
are now 15 wells either drilling or contracted
for In tbo new territory. Tbe Gibson well in
Bingamon has been given np as a dry hole.

Small Gains at tbe Close.
New Tons, November 15. The stock mar
ket was active and in the main strong to-day,
and prices this evening are generally fraction
ally higher than last evening, while a few
shares show very marked advances. The bull
ish feeling developed yesterday was very pro
nounced this morning, and received encourage
ment from the heavy buying of St Paul by
London bouses. Tbe traders quickly gott over
to the bull side, and tbe dealings in that stock
for the first hour were extremely large, the for
eign purchases alone being estimated at up
ward of 25,000 shares. There was talk of a bull
pool In the Btock, and reports of heavy recent
purchases by tbe leading Chicago operators.
The unusual strensth of the market discon
certed the bears, and they caBt around for a
weak spot to counteract tbe effects of the rise
In St. Paul, hut found nothing better than Cot
ton OH, which early became a feature with
large, transactions and decided weakness A
reaction was brought about, but It was In all
probability as much due to the selling ot Louis
ville and Nashville by the foreign element as to
the weakness in Cotton OH, and while the last
the railroad list recovered and St. Paul was up
to 72, with others in proportion.
The reports from the West continue to be
very encouraging, and Rock Island especially
made a handsome advance, though it was not
held in the afternoon. Louisville and Nash
ville was the one weak point in the regular list,
ana at one time it was 1 per cent below its
best figure, but ended only fractionally lower
than last nlgbt. Chicago Gas was also at
tacked with Cotton Oil. and after a fractional
advance it was knocked down over 2 per cent,
but like Louisville, its final price is only frac
tionally lower than last -evening. Tennesseo
Coal made another one of the jumps for which
it has become notable of late, and after some
wide and violent fluctuations it closed nearly 5
er cent higher. The Grangers were the
leaders in the market, and the covering of
shorts in them assumed large proportions,
while the buvln? for the Ion? account was very
marked. Outside of St. Paul, however, there
was little feature.
The opening was made at the usual small
fractional advances, but St, Paul was np Ji and
Tennessee Coal 1 per cent. Both made further
market improvement, but the others under the
heaviness in Louisville and Nashville and the
selling ot Cotton Oil failed to Improve mucb,
and toward noon the entire list, with but few
exceptions, was slightly lower than at tbe open
ing. Dullness again became the nature, but
prices began to mend after 12 o'clock, and later
tbe buying was resumed with more confidence,
and a slow but steady appreciation set in.
which continued with but slight interruption
till the close. There was some reaction from
the best flenres, but the close was quiet and
steady to firm. The final changes were gen
erally small advances, bnt TennesseeXoal rose
1, St. Paul 1 and Manitoba 1 per cent, while
Cotton Oil declined 2J.
Railroad bonds wore again active and dis
played moro feature than for some time past.
The sales amounted to 81,794,000, distributed
among an unusually large number of Issues,
while the Ft, Worth and Denver firsts with
1350,000, the Wabash new firsts with S127.00O
and the seconds with S100,0u0 were most promi
nent In the dealings, followed by Toledo, Ann
Arbor and North Michigan firsts. Tbe market
was strong and some material gains were made,
thongh here and there declines were estab
lished in the inactive Issues.

The value of the exports of oil from tbe
United States for the first ten months of
1889 was $44,114,000, an increase of $4,478,

December i next. Most of it will he paid ont
on requisition this month, and it will amount
to about $20,000,000. Payments for the last
quarter were over $20,000,000.
The announcement is made that all tbe em
ployes of the iron furnaces of tbe Mahoning
Valley have been granted an increase of 10 per
cent in wages, to take effect on Monday next.
The advance was unsolicited.
It has been discovered that the iron work of
one of tbe new blast furnaces at the Edgar
Thomson Steel Works has been run up too
high and must be torn down to tbe proper
height. The furnace will, therefore, not make
iron until Merch. The other furnace may be
ready by July. '
The oil well contractors of Washington, Pa.,
met a few days ago and completed an organiza
tion. The object ol the nnion is to raise tbe
price of drilling to a more satisfactory flgnre.
The price at present ranges from $1 to $1 20 per
foot in undeveloped territory, while wildcat
uruiing Dnngs irom 11 2U to 11. 10 per loot.
Notice is out that on December 6 applica
tion will be made to the Governor for a charter
of an intended corporation to be called the
Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester Traction
Company. Tbe charter is intended for the use
of the Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester
Company after reorganization.
The Iron Age publishes its detailed monthly
blastfurnace report, showing an increase in
weekly production from 151,057 gtoss tons on
October 1, to 165,225 gross tons on November 1,

by Joseph Craig ot his interest in the Western

step is preliminary to the final transfer of the
