BEGMIN6 AND END.
Pittsburg Breaking Away From the
Crude Methods of the Founders.
THE FIRST STAGE OF HER CAREER
Completed'in Honor, She Takes a Fresh
Start, Which is Full of Peril
HOW TO AVOID POSSIBLE DISASTER
Pittsburg has reached a critical point in
her career. She has finished one stage of
her progress, and is starting out upon
another. Old Pittsburg is behind; new
Pittsburg is before. Her past has been hon
orable, full ot noble achievements in peace
and war, but the future promises to crown
her with still brighter laurels.
Planted as & bulwark on the western
range of civilization by men and women
who literally fought their way from the
cradle to the grave, and who, therefore,
were imbued with a large stock of utilitar
ian ideas, to the exclusion of the ideal and
sentimental, it is not surprising that the
early institutions of the city were
framed with a view to foster the
practical concerns of life incident to a
new commnnlty far removed from the centers
of fashion. They were pioneers, leading civili
zation from the rising to the setting sun from
Plymonth Rock to the Golden Gate the proph
ets, priests and warriors who acted a part in
laying the foundations of an; empire, which
has grown to be the admiration of the world,
and naturally fell into conservative habits and
modes of thinking, which led tbem to place a
higher estimate upon the realistic than the
ideal. Tbe present was everythlnr to them.
They labored for their day and generation.
It is possible that visions of a great city,
springing from the straggling village which
they had planted at "the forks of the Ohio,"
may have sometimes crossed tbe minds of tbe
rude forefathers of this great center of life
and industry; but if so, they gave no sign, but
kept on in their simple ways, content with the
rewards that fell to them, and leaving the
fruition of their tolls and privations to be enl
joyed by their descendants. Ibe result was a
town without purpose or design in its building,
so far as order and convenience were con
cerned. Ho jses were built before streets were
laid out, compelling them to be carried over
devious courses, winding in and out to avoid
obstructions, and involving them in a maze of
crookedness and uncertainty as to where
tbey began and ended, which has been the
wonder ot every Eucceedmg generation. It
may be urged that 'tho lay of the land" was
against the builders and street makers of that
period, but still it is clear that if tbey bad paid
more attention to straight lines better results
would have been secured.
Thus handicapped, Pittsburg was slow In
breaking through the difficulties inherited
from tbe founders, but skill and perseverance
finally succeeded, and she started out upon
new lines, radiating from the old town
in all directions filling the val
leys and climbing the hills, planting her
Industries and establishing homes for ber peo
ple as she enlarged her boundaries, until she
compelled recognition as one of the great cities
of tbe country great in population, wealth and
intelligence, and first as a manufacturing cen
ter. This is her position to-day. Her past is
secure. Blot ber deeds from the annals of the
country, and there would be a hiatus which
only tne liveliest imagination could span. It
would eliminate from history some of Its
brightest and most glorious pages. What of
Communities, like individuals, have their
ebbs and flows seasons of exultation and de
pressionof prosperity and reverse. Pittsburg,
having emerged from the disadvantages of her
early environments, is preparing to take a
fresh start. The close conservatism of her
founders has given place to a broader and more
aggressive policy, which is producing good re
sults. Her light is no longer hid under a
bushel, but flashes out so as to be seen of all
men. Great natural advantages and resources
are being utilized and held ont to attract popu
lation and capital, and with such success that
her growth is a matter of surprise. Her com
mercial importance keeps pace with her
growth. Her financial institutions are among
tbe most substantial in tbe coun
try, and they are backed up
by an industrial system so extensive and diversi
fied as not only to insure their permanency but
gradual enlargement to meet the exigencies of
Tbe spirit of progress Is not confined to any
particular class of citizens, but pervades all.;
toilers as well as millionaires. A tour of the
suburbs furnishes ample proof of this. Thou
sands of comfortable houses erected this year,
and inhabited by men who turn iron and other
raw materials into gold, demonstrate a degree
of prosperity of tbe bone and sinew of the
community which it would be vain to look for
elsewhere. The gift of a splendid park by a
lady wbose paternal ancestors bore a name
that is still held in honorable remembrance in
Pittsburg, tbe addition of many fine public
and private buildings of the highest type of
architecture, the introduction of rapid transit
to ail the outlying districts, the building of
railroads to afford better shipping facilities,
the great demand for real estate whereon to
establish homes, and activity In building, open
up a field ot possibilities which cannot be
measured, and no doubt will Incite the commu
nity to still greater efforts to make Pittsburg
as great in fact as she is in name. Local pride
having become excited, it is reasonable to ex
pect something bordering on the marvelous to
show for it. A population ot 1,000,000 within 20
years, or even less time, would not bs sur
prising. But while this result Is being worked out, cit
izens should not altogether cut I0080 from the
customs of the fathers. They should not forget
to be safely conservative. There is danger in a
sudden departure from an established policy
unless caution be observed. Wild speculation,
land and other booms, bave strewed the land
with wreck. The desire to amass riches quickly
has blighted many a rosy prospect, and left
ruin in its wake.
Bo far Pittsburg has been exceptionally free
from these disorders: but in the progress of
events, and in the larger sphere of develop
ment upon which she is entering, alluring op
portunities for reckless speculation and extrav
agance will arise. Against these every citizen
should inflexibly set his face.
A GOOD GLOSS.
Unusual Activity In Stocks for the Last Day
of tfao Week:
The stock market wound up the week yester
day without a symptom of excitement, but
with a good business for a short session, the
total sales reaching S7S shares. The active
properties were Pittsburg Traction, Central
Traction, Airbrako and New York and Cleve
land Gas Coat
Central Traction was fractionally stronger,
but Pittsburg was weaker. Airbrake abont
held its own, though it has been higher within
a short time. Yesterday's movement was the
first for several weeks, and the price paid is
hardly a fair indication of the market. Gas
Coal has been neglected so long that it Is hard
to tell what It is worth. It brought 35,
Of the inactive list, Pittsburg, Allegheny
and Manchester Railway showed a disposition
to weaken, bnt the feeling was probably more
nominal than real. Its prospects are too good
for a material decline. There was the usual

were all firmly held. Transactions follow:

DULLEST OF THE WEEK.
The Oil Slarket Closea Tame and Without
Any Particular Expression.
There was very little in the oil market yes
terday to attract attention. Tbe opening was
$1 I0Ji, highest $1 10M, lowest $1 10, closing
$1 10. It was, in fact, the dullest market of
tbe week, none of the exchanges doing any
thing of importance. What little expression
there was baa a bullish flavor, which was more
pronounced at the close than any other time.
Friday's clearances were 583,000 barrels. Those
for tbe week were 6,226,000 barrels.

of tbe Day.
New York. November 16. The stock mar
ket was active to-day, though the interest in
tbe trading was confined to a few of tbe lead
ing shares. The strength of yesterday was
continued, however, and almost everything
traded in was left at still higher figures than
yesterday. The same tactics were pursued by
tbe bears, and, unable to stem the improving
tendency, they sought out weak spots with
which to make some effect npon the rest of tbe
Rock Island an d Union Pacific proved to be
the bull cards ot the day, and both were active
and decidedly strong, the former on large re
turns officially reported from Chicaeo and the
splendid prospects of the company. Among the
specialties Ontario and Western was again con
spicuous for both activity and strength, the
buying being supposed to bave come from Van
derbllt sources. Tbe opening was active and
firm, but the pressure brought on Cotton Oil
and Western Union by the bears checked tbe
Improving tendency on the list, with the single
exception of Rhode Island, which soon crossed
Cotton Oil was raided down to 29 after tha
first slight advance, but Western Union yielded
only a small fraction. The eifort proved of no
avail and the market became dull, while the
early losses were quickly regained, with frac
tions In addition. Union Pacific then came to
the front and sold up to 68 against 6SJ last
evening. The buying for both sides of tbe ac
count became more pronounced after the issue
of the bank statement, which was put out to
ward 11:45, and the last few minutes' trading
was tbe most active of tbe session, while the
upward movement mado most progress at that

Railroad bonds were comparatively dull, tbe

John SI. Oakley Be Co.'a Prlvnte Information
from Wall Street.
New Yobk, November 16. A brilliant
autumn day, crisp air, bright sunshine, a good
bank statement, favorable railway returns and
a bull market. That is to-day's record. The
market was firm through the early dealings in
everything save cotton oil, which Is a friendless
waif just now, and kicked by former friends
and foes alike. Tbe trust is in a state of chaos
at tbe moment, with no permanent form of or
ganization and no stable executive manage
ment, but it will soon emerge from its present
condition and new men will take bold and push
its fortunes. Therefore we say that npon any
further drive at the stock we should consider it
a purchase. It looks to us as if it was on tbe
The Grangers were not uniformly progres
sive. Rock Island was very strong on talk of
an important Increase in its earnings, bnt St.
Paul lagged behind, while Chicago. Uurllngton
andQuincy and Northwest made no notable
change. Chicago traders are more bullish on
tbe Grangers, and the bear party Is not so ag
gressivaas it was. Big earnings are impress
ing the public with an increasingly hopeful ex
pectation as to stock values, and we may yet
run into greater activity and rapidly rising
values. There is, however, no indication thata
voracious appetite for stocks has been whetted
by the statistical display of the railways, bnt
bulls hope that hunger will yet seize the public
Union Pacific was the banner stock to-day, and
it has the prospect of going up several points
early next week. Fort Worth and Denver
securities are all np on tbe alliance recently
made between that road and Union Pacific, and
a further adyance Is confidentially expected.
Tennessee Coal and Iron continued its inex
plicable npward flight almost touching 75,
while tne preferred stock and the 6 per cent
first mortgage bonds are only 25 points nghr
than this common stock.
Missouri Pacific was not in good form to-day.
and Richmond Terminal, too, failed to respond
to tbe improving temper of speculation.
Tbe coal stocks were strong, bnt didn't go np
much. The idea is being cultivated that the
boom in iron and steel must vastly benefit the
coalers, bnt this is limited. Tbe Western and
Southern furnaces and foundries all use coke
and bituminous coal. Tbe general sentimentat
the close was bullish, and tbe bank statement
showing $L300.00U increase in reserve, was the
signal for freer bidding and higher prices. The
banks really have $l,b00,000 more money than a
week ago. Money is easily obtained at 6 per
cent on proper collateral, bnt not below that
figure. Petroleum was neglected, but. in our
judgment, it is designed to sell much higher.

CmcAao Wheat A fair speculative busi

ruled quiet. Tbe f eellDg was a little unsettled,
though the impression was that a prominent
trader has been selling as mncb a possible on
tbe quiet, and this created a rather weaker
feelingln the December future than the May,
tbe latter again commanding a wider premium.
The market the past few days has acted queer

The opening was abont the same as yester
day's closing, and prices were advanced
slightly, then declined Ijvgc for December and
Jic for May, improved again, and closed at the
same as yesterday. The export movement for
the week was the largest for many days an d
gave hope and encouragement to the bulliater
est, but outside speculation seems to be lack
ing. The exports of wheat and flour from both
coasts for the six days were reported at 2,C9L

previous week and 2,062,00 bushels the eor

200,000bushels larger than last week's arrivals.
It is estimated that the visible supply will show
an increase of about 1,000,000 bushels. Euro
pean markets were quoted steady and firm.
Corn was fairly active and weaker, especially
the near deliveries, which were offered quite
freely and lower prices were established. The
easier tone was attributed to clear and cool
weather and prospects of larger receipts. The
approaching close of navigation, together with
the expected larger movement, increased the
offerings of December and January, and there
was a general widening of the premium of
May over these deliveries. The market opened
a shade nnder the closing prices of yesterday,

ELOPED WITH HIS TIPEWECTEB.
A Promlaent Albany lawyer Succarabs ta
tbe Wiles qf a Pretty Girl.
rsntCIlX. TH.IQEAM to ths disf.atcs.3
Albany, N. Y., November 16". A sens,
tion was created to-day by the discovery
that Colonel "W. "W. Thompson, a promi
nent Albany lawyer, who recently served as
Pension Agent under Secretary Noble, had
eloped with Bertha Denton, his typewriter,
and had taken with him f 1,200 ia money
belonging to his clients. Thompson disap
peared Sunday, telling his wife that busi
ness called him to 2J" ew York. His female
companion, who is a pretty, buxom girl of
abont 19, met him at a hotel here, and the
two left on a night train for the West.
It appears now that the couple have been
intimate since last August, when Thomp
son first took the gay Bertha into his em
ploy. In September she came to live with
the Thompson family, much against the
wife's will, as she already felt suspicions of
the pair's relations. Pinally Mrs. Thomp
son ejected the girl and her baggage from
the house. Then the pretty typewriter
brought suit for 51,000 damages for slander,
butnothingcanieofit. Tbe affair has caused
much talb.owing to Thompson's prominence
in the profession.
