Mojjdat, November IS. 1839. J
The situation in live stock markets
cannot be called bright at this date. The
nin for to-day's markets at the Herr'a Island
yards was below average, but supplies were
more than enough to meet all demands of
trade. The drift of cattle and hogs was
toward a lower level of prices. Sheep and
lambs were a shade higher than last Mon
day. The supply of cattle was higher than
usual. Demand was moderate, running
mainly to best heavy and prime light
weights. Prices ruled 10 to 15 per cent
lower than last Monday.

A Good Speculative Movement in Wheat,
nnd Prices Rule Fractionally Higher
Corn, Oats and Pork Dull
Chicago Wheat A fair volume of business
was transacted to-day In a speculative way.
The market opened dull and featureless, but
afterward developed more life, witbiri a some
what irregular course of prices. The Decem
ber future after ruling for some little time at
about the closing figures of Saturday, suddenly
broke loose from May and declined lc, while
the May future declined only e, held quiet
and steady and closed lo lower for December,
while May closed same as closing figures Sat
urday. The weakness, especially in the Decem
ber future, was attributed mainly to specula
tive influences. It was hinted that aprominent
local trader undertook to close ont some wheat
for December, And, other traders having taken
the cue. sold the market out from under him.
The difference between the December and May
futures widened from 33ic to 4Jc under
this movement, and closed at 4Kc premium.
European market advices qnoted wheat steady
and firm, and Beerbohm cables qnoted higher
prices asked, but closing private cables were
Visible supply increased 1,559.000 bushels.
The principal points which figured hi the in
crease were the spring wheat points, while
nearly all of the winter wheat points. Baltl'
more excepted, showed a decrease from 1,000 to
49,000 bushels. The canals showed an increase
and the lakes a largo decrease. Receipts in
the Northwest continue large. New lork
-nired that there were numerous export orders
for wheat there, and that millers were alo in
quiring for wheat. An order to bay 150,000
bushels No. 1 hard was sent to Minneapolis at
Jc above Saturday's price, which could not be
executed. Foreigners bought wheat for May
delivery both at Chicago and Dnlutb.
Corn A fair speculative business was trans
acted anu the feeling developed as on Satur
day was easier, there being considerable pres
sure brought to bear on the near futures. The
weaker tone was attributed mainly to the in
creasing receipts. The wet weather here did
not appear to have much effect on values as
west of the Mississippi to the weather was re
ported cold and clear. The market opened at
the closing prices of Saturday, was steady for
a time, then sold off Hc, ruled steady and
closed c lower than Saturday.
Oats were active, stronger and higher,
but outside prices were not maintained until
the close. The advance was due almost en
tirely to the buying for May by a larce ope
rator who caused an appreciation of c
There was fair selling at the top and a reces
sion of H6Kc followed. The near futures
were traded in moderately, bnt advanced
He in sympathy with May.
Mess Pork Very little interest was mani
fested. Prices exhibited little cbamre.
Lard A fair Inquiry prevailed. Prices ex
hibited little change, excepting for the near
deliveries, which ruled SejTKc higher.
Short Rib Sides Trading was very light, but
the feeling was steadier.

HOW THET VIEW IT.
Prominent Beat Estate Sealers Air
Their Opinions of the Market.
VALUES AKD THEIR TENDENCY.
Prices Ifay Creep Up Some in Eesponse to
the Demand, lut There Will be
K0THIKG LIKE A KAD1CAL DEPAETDEE
The leading features of thereal estate mar
ket are a brisk demand for large tracts of
land, and the great number of building sites
being purchased by workingmen. Both of
these characteristics are favorable to the con
tinuance of a strong, healthy market The
absorption of large tracts is but a prelude to
next year's activity. There is nothing to
show that it is the intention of the purchas
ers to hold them for a rise. The policy now
is to realize on investments as quickly as
possible. Such has been the case this rear,
and it is not likely that it will be different
next year. These lands will, therefore, be sub
divided as soon as practicaole, sold and built
upon, giving the working people additional op
portunities to become proprietors.
But the increasing numbers of people in mod
erate circumstances, who earn their bread by
the sweat of their brow, who arg acquiring
homes, is the brightest and most encouraging
feature of the market. Such a movement is a
sure guarantee against a reaction, since they
do not buy and build for speculation, bnt to
make homes for themselves and their families.
Every lot sold and built upon by a workingman
strengthens real estate against a reaction, by
lessening by se much the supply; and the very
nature of the bulk of the demand from people
ot small means, unable, if they were willing,
to pay fancy prices is a reasonable assurance
arainst extravagance in the demands of owners.
Concerning real estate generally, a member
of the firm of W. A. Herron Sons said yes
terday evening: "We can report the market as
in a very healthy and satisfactory condition.
The Inquiry for lots on which to build is BtlU
active for the time of year, and the selling of
improved properties has not been equaled for
two years. The inquiry for business property
for investment is on the increase, and indicates
a desire on the part of capitalists to look after
real estate as a permanent investment. We
can also report mortgages as in fair demand,
money reasonably easy, and an abundance of
funds available for all kinds of real estate and
other business transactions."
In regard to East End property, and the
probable tendency of prices in that district,
Mr. W. C. Stewart had this to say yesterday:
"There Is a current belief that prices will, be
lower considerably lower but such is not my
Judgment. I think so for these reasons: In the
first place, the bulk of the inquiry for property
is largely centered in Oakland, Bellfield and
Shadyside, and portions of thTwenty-second
ward contiguous to the Schenley Park. People
wanting to erect expensive houses, costing
from $15,000 to 840,000, desire to locate in Shady
side. These wanting to build homes ranging
ia cost from $3,000 to J7.000 generally prefer
Oakland, on account of the cheap fare and con
venience to business,
"This demand is causing a scarcity of
property in the districts named, and
the inevitable result will be the
enhancement of values at least 25 per cent
within probably six months: but the idea enter
tained by some that the increase will be three
fold is simply absurd, ana it is well that it is,
for such an advance would discourage buyers
and retard improvements. At the present time
there is an active demand for this property.and
prices are not considered too high; but to in
crease them threefold, or anything like it,
would mean that owners would be compelled to
hold their property until they came to their
senses. To show that Shadyside property Is
not too high for the demand. I will say that 90
days ago I offered a piece of property there for
130 a foot A few -days ago I soldthesame
property for (153 a foot, and this morning conld
have got SI60.
"Regarding Squirrel Hill values, I will say
that properties on that part of the hill bonnded
on the north by WUkins avenue, on the south
by Forbes avenue, on the east by Shady lane,
and on the west by Barton street, are very de
sirable and in active demand and with few ex
ceptions can be purchased at reasonable fig
ures; but they are bound to go higher, becanse
at present prices lots cut 200 feet deep are sell
ing at from S20 to $30 a foot, and on Forbes
avenue, where It is paved, the acreage price is
only S25 a foot, and on the cross streets retail
prices range from $20 to $30 a foot. On easy pay
ments, and can be bought much less for cash.
"Considering the eligibility of this district
for residence purposes, these figures cannot be
considered exorbitant, especially when com
pared with prices at Braddock and other out
lying districts, and with property located in the
hill district of Allegheny. I think the demand
tor property in'and about the city in all direc
tions is sufficient to sustain valnes,and.perhaps,
as 1 have said, cause enhancement in favored
localities, but I do not look for anything like a
boom, which would be the most undesirable
thing that could happen. On the other hand,
without a complete change of conditions, a ma
terial depression is simply out of the question."
The local lumber trade is rather slack, as
compared with a mouth or two ago, partly on
account of bad weather, and partly because of
the lateness of the season. Another reason is
the near approach of the end of the year.when,
as a general thing, bnt little new business is
attempted, owing to the uncertainty as to what
the new year may bring forth in the way of
business changes. In regard to this phase of
the matter a wholesale dealer on Fifth avenue
"There are so many great interests in the
United States, disaster to any one of which
would affect the entire business system of the
country that capitalists are proverbially cau
tious at the end of the year, when changes are
liable to occur, or rather, when they begin to
cast their shadows before. Hence, but little
new business is being placed. I do not wish
to be understood as holding that there
will be a collapse in any branch of trade at the
end of the year or beginning of next, for there
is not the slightest indication of it; but, with
their usual caution, business men are getting
their affairs well in hand, so as to be prepared
for anything that may happen, good or bad;
and this caution, this disposition to keep
within bounds and not to needlessly venture
upon untried ground, is one or the best guaran
tees of the stability of business that can be
Prices are more steady, but with a drooping
inclination Incident to the season, but stocks
have increased somewhat within the past two
weeks and are adequate to the demand. Sea
soned lumber is in better supply than earlier in
the season, when the want was greater. There
is some trouble in getting special orders filled
at the mills, from the fact that they are consid
erably behind band with their work; but in all
other respects the market is on a comfortable
THEI PICKED UP.
Stock Rather Soft at the Opening, but Im
prove Later On.
Stocks were soft as well as the weather at
the opening of the market yesterday, but they
steadied up as the day wore alone, and closed
with a large percentage of losses recovered.
Total sales were 317 shares, contributed by
Electric, Wheeling Gas, Central Traction,PhlI
adelphia Gas. and Pitts Da rg Traction!
Philadelphia Gas opened weak at 31, but
advanced on a good demand to 32, and closed
at 3 The other natural gas stocks were
weak and neglected. There was a wide gap in
Ohio Valley, 5 being bid and 29 asked. The
bid was made in a haphazard way as a feeler,
and amounted to nothing. Pittsburg Junction
Railroad was wanted at 29, with 31 asked.
A little flurry merely for effect in Luster Min
ing Company sent the buying figure up to 10c,
but holders immediately raised it to 15. They
still have the stock. Central Traction a little
more than held its own. closing at 83 bid,
and 34 asked. Pittsburg Traction sold at
47K- showing no material change. Electric
opened and closed the same.
Business is far from satisfactory to the
brokers, "but as thero is bo apparent remedy
tbey will have to grin and bear it. The fact Is
that what ia called legitimate business is sp
good, offering so many opportunities for
making money, that investors are paying very
littler attention to speculative ' commodities.

Local Bankers Dolne a Good Business An
The local money market was in a quiet state
yesterday so far as new features were con
cerned, but there was a good demand for funds
at the customary rates. As usual on Monday,
checking and depositing were large. Exchange
was scarce with some banks and easy with
others. The clearings were $2,791,338 IS and the
balances $462,647 6L
A cashier remarked: "Money is not going
a-begging now, as it did a month or two ago,
but while it is a little tighter and more caution
is exercised in putting it out, there is enough
for all business and will be throuehout the
winter. Most of the loans are short time and
soon return. Our own bank is loaned into the
reserve, but this will only last for a day or two.
Some other banks, I understand, are also
loaned up, but, as I said before, most of the
loans are on short time, and a bank may be
empty to-day and full to-morrow. The situa
tion Is all we could wish and the prospect for
the winter is encouraging."

They Blake a Blue Day In Oil The Jennings
Yesterday was bear day at the Oil Jiicbange.
Busmess was light and prices were weaker.
There was no particular reason" given for it, ex
cept that the buying demand in the East
seemed to be satisfied for the present. The
market opened'at 110, highest, 111; lowest and
closing, 109. Pittsburg was the best buyer.
Other points were sellers in a small way. Most
ot the business was done in an hour. Satur
day's clearances were 181,000 barrels.
A gentleman just up from the Jennings &
Co. well, on the Davis' farm, one mile and a
half from the Arbuckle. said yesterday after
noon: "The well Is flowing at the rate of 25
barrels an hour. It is being drilled deeper, and
the probability Is, it will increase its output.
Some think it will outstrip its big neighbor.'

Rnllrond Shares Very Active bat Irregular,
With Rapid and Freqnent Changes
Money Disturbed and
New York, November 18. The stock .mar
ket was more jictivo to-day than it has been in
months, while at the same time the dealings
extended to a greater number of stocks than at
any time this yean The tone of the market,
however, was extremely irregular, with rapid
and frequent changes from strength to weak
ness and the reverse. Union Pacific, the coal
stocks and some ot the specialties were strong
and did much to bring about a higher range of
values in the general list, but the trusts and
Atchison were equally weak and had a marked
Influence for barm, especially during the after
noon. The temper of the room was generally
conservatively bullish, but London, owing to
the Brazilian troubles, was a seller to a limited
extent of its favorites and the bears vigorously
resisted the upward tendency of prices making
specially heavy drives at the trusts as a means
of downing the general list.
The money market was again disturbed in the
afternoon, and the rata on call got as high as
20 per cent, which also had a very discouraging
influence upon the market toward the close.
Union Pacific and Denver. Texas and Fort
Worth were bought on the prospective arrange
ments between them, and the Tatter made one
of the most important upward movements of
the day. while tho former reached still higher
prices, though the whole, advances could not be
held. The Coal stocks were very strong, the
rise in the prices of iron and its manufactures
giving quite a boom to Tennessee Coal, Colorad
Coal and Reading, while Lackawanna sympa
thized with the last named. There was In the
early portion of the day considerable covering
ot shorts in the Coal stocks, but later realiza
tions on the long account wiped ont most of
the improvement. Tennessee Coal which is said
to bi worked in the market by a party of
Southern speculators made a jump ot 10 per
cent from 74 to 84, but fell away half of the
advance. Atchison was weak from the open
ing, though its decline was slow, and it had
considerable effect in checking the improving
tendency of the rest of the list in the early
Cotton Oil was the first object of attackby
the bears and it reached 28 before the decline
was stopped, though tbpre was talk from hull
sources of a squeeze in the shorts in the stock.
Sugar declined in close sympathy with Cotton
Oil, although Mr. Havemeyer was said
to have taken a gloomy view of the prospects
of the Trust In his recent utterances which had
considerable effect. There was some weakness
in Western Union upon talk of the establish
ment of a Postal Telegraph by the Govern
ment. The opening was extremely Irregular
and Louisville and Nashville was off per
cent, and while there was a general improve
ment In the forenoon the realizations later
wiped out most of the advances aided by the
weakness of the stocks mentioned above.
The close was unsettled and irregnlar though
with a better feeling than had prevailed during
the afternoon. The final changes are about
equally divided between gains and losses, and
while Sugar is down 1, and Atchison 1 per
cent, Tennessee Coal is up 5, Colorado Coal
3, Denver, Texas and Ft. Worth 2 and Chi
cago Gas 1, the other changes being for fract
Railroad bonds were relatively much more
quiet than stocks and also much more regular
in their movement, tho tono of the dealings
being fairly Arm throughout the day. The sales
of all issues reached 41,486,000, out of which the
Wabash seconds contributed $143,000 and the
Texas Pacific seconds 8I23,0CKX The only fea
ture of interest was the strength of the Read
ing juniors, the thirds rising 2 to 49, and the
seconds Vk to 69. Chesapeake and Ohio

Cincinnati and Indianapolis general sixes lost
T2ie Post's financial article says: There ap
pears to be some obstacle in the way of the
reorganization of the Cotton Trust into a cor
poration, as tbe deposits of Trust certificates
for transfer is very small. There is no market
for the certificates of tbo Centra Trnst Com
pany representing the proposed new Cotton oil
stock, and any one holding the present Cotton
Trust certificates, prefers to keep tbem.as they
are at least salable, though at a declining
market The trouble with the Cotton Trust's
affairs appears to be that in the recent attempts
of its officials to bull the lard and oil markets,
it has accumulated a large stock of both manu
factured oil and also cottonseed to manufacture
more, a stock so large that the market for
those articles will not take it without a serious
decline in price. Tho accumulation of this
stock of material also made it necessary for the
Trust to put out a large amount of its paper,
which is now coming and which, under the
circumstances, the Trust finds it very difficult
to renew. There is a strong possibility of the
necessity of a receiver before its affairs can be
The most conspicuous stock on the list, how
ever, in the forenoon was Tennessee CoaL which
fluctuated wildly from 74 at tbe opening to 84
by 11:30, and 79, SI. 79 in the hour to 1 o'clock.
It is being traded in by a good many South
ern people, who are enthusiastic over the great
increase of its earnings, which were $770,000 for
October, leaving surplus earnings of $42,000
over fixed charges for the month. This great
increase of profit is due entirely to the advance
in prices of iron. Union Pacific and Denver
and Fort "Worth were the next most conspicu
ous for activity and advance, owing to the largo
earnings of the former and the general belief
that now that Denver and Fort Worth has be
come practically part of tbe Union Pacific sys
tem, its earnings will be largely inci eased,
London sold some stocks this forenoon,
especially Louisville andNasbville and Norfolk
and Western preferred, though this was tbe
result of apprehensions there that tbe Brazilian
revolution would in some way require tbe with
drawal of gold from the Bank of England for
export to South America.

New York. November 18. Business in dry-
f;oods was fair. There was no special activity
n any direction. Cotton goods are strong in
tone, and though some buyers are holding off
there are no indications that any concessions
can be obtained. Coarse yarn fabrics are ad
vancing. Lewis Bros. & Ccbave effected a set
tlement with their creditors, and have peti
tioned the courts for a reassignment of assets.
London CoHee Markets.
London, November 18. The coffee market
is strong, but buyers are cautions. Futures
have advanced 2s. 6d. since Friday. The con
tinental markets are higher and firmer, partly
owing to the covering of shorts.
