Orncs or PrrrsnDBa Dispatch, 1
Tuesdat. November 19. 1889.
Interviews with representatives of the
sewer pipe, cement and firebrick trade de
Yelped the fact that there is unusual activity
all along the line. The uniform testimony
is that the trade is much beyond that of last
season in volume of goods handled, and in
fact was never better than right now. The
new traction roads constructed the past year
have made extraordinary demands upon the
cement trade. A member of a leading firm
reports sales of 123,000 Carrels of cement the
present car, and nearly the same amount last,
which is an increase of more than one-third
over the average sales of the five years pre
vious. The demand for sewer pipe does not show any
great increase; but dealers report an improve
ment over last year.
Fire Brick In Bis Demand.
There has been an extraordinary demand for
fire brick, both for paving and mill purposes,
all this season. In some grades it has been
next to impossible to fill orders. The two new
furnaces in process of construction at the Ed
gar Thomson works call for millions of fire
brick, and it taxes one of our leading firms to
meet demands there.
At one establishment it was learned this
morning that heavy orders were recently re
ceived from Roanoke, Virginia, and Philadel
phia, and that the orders now in would Keep
the manufactories represented by them busy
all the coming winter.
There has been developed here in recent
years a large trade with Philadelphia for pav
ing fire brick.
The Mutter U Explained.
Said a member of one of the leading firms:
"Our Industry was never in better shape, and
the outlook was never brighter than it is to-day.
To be sure, competition is sharper and margins
are much closer than in other j ears; but we
make np for this in the amount of goods
handled. Prices vary very little from what
they were a year ago. If there is any difference,
they are a shade lower."
It was elicited in the Interviews with repre
sentatives of the fire-brick industry that there
has been developed in the past four years a
great trade for paving fire-brick. The great
eduction in prices and the superior qualities
of this material for paving purposes have very
much stimulated trade at the expense of the
old fashioned red brick.
Slates and Mantels.
A member of the leading business house of
the city engaged in the manutacture and sale
of slate for roofing and mantels thus puts
the situation and outlook of this Industry
'We have in no former season handled the
same amount of goods, but profits are greatly
below those of former seasons. W thought
prices of the high grades of roofing slate were
down to hard pan a year ago, but there was a
reduction of about 10 per cent last spring,
owing to the unwise policy of dealers, and no
recovery since, though demand has been ex
traordinary. Low grades have taken an up
ward turn, but the cut-throat policy among
competitors has prevented a similar advance in
the higher grades.
"With such an active demand as we have
been having this fall, and the low prices that
have prevailed by all ordinary rules of trade,
there should be higher prices. "We find it next
to impossible to meet orders, and, though we
have two quarries turning out materials, have
been obliged of late to go outside of our own
products to satisfy customers. This has
Very Rarely Occnrrrd
in our business history. Notwithstanding the
great pressure for our products, it has been
found impossible to advance prices. The sea
Bon for mantels is now fully on, as houses are
being finished up and demand was never
greater. It is nip and tnck between slate and
wooden mantels for tine residences.
"The fine artistic designs in slate mantels
have given them quite an impetus the past
year or two We sell both, and find that the
-aJate mantel is full holding its own in com
petition with that made of wood.
"As to amonnt of goods handled this season,
both in roofing and fire front materials, we
have done better than last year or any former
year, and the outlook for a lively winter's
trade was never as bright as now."

A Man Who Claims to Have Invented the
Monitor Crazed br Disappointment.
Maldex, Mass., November 19. A man
who claims to have been the original in
ventor of the "Monitor, was sent to the
"Westboro insane hospital to-day. His name
is Joseph "W. Ubrcross. His insanity was
caused directly by the refusal ol Secretary
of the Navy Whitney to adopt a model for
a lifeboat which he designed. His wife
substantiates his statement that he was the
original designer or the Monitor, and says
that he submitted his designs to Gideon
Wells, then Secretary of the Navy, together
with a model for a gun turret. He claims
that these models were turned over to Erics
son, who built the Monitor. He savs he
watched the construction of the boat, and
told Ericsson that it would sink, as it was
not being built according to his model, and
the truth of his prediction was verified
though not until she had sunk the Merri
mac Norcross also claims to have first invented
the screw propeller and twitting block, and
that he was the original inventor oi the
barbed wire fence, models of which he had
on exhibition for a long time previous to its
being adopted, but he says he made verv
little money out of his inventions, because
tney were stolen trom mm by capitalists.
He superintended the building of the Bo
chester aqueduct, andwas offered the super
intendency of the construction of the Erie
canal. He is reported to have been
wealthy at one time, but he is a poor man
now. He is 79 yean old.

His scalp was laid bare about three inches,

A Real Estate Exchange Necessary to
Handle Business Properly.
SOME ADVANTAGES POINTED OUT.
Sequel to a Remarkable Boom That Swept
Oyer Southern California.
HEWEKGLAHD FARMING PLATING OUT
The methods of handling real estate are
constantly changing. Time was when near
ly all the sales were by auction, but this
system is rapidly falling into disuetude, ex
cept when required by law. From the
auction to the exchange is a big jump, but
that is the trend of the business. - Beal es
tate exchanges exist in nearly all of the
principal cities, and are found to work sat
isfactorily to both sellers and buyers. There
is no good reason why Pittsburg should be
behind in this important matter. Business
is already too large to be rapidly and conven
iently transacted any other way.
Real estate exchanges promote business
wherever established. This statement has the
support of statistics, and is in harmony with
the opinions of leading operators in realty who
have from time to time given their views to the
public And there is good reason why they
should. They bring business men Into closer
relations, where they can discuss affairs face to
face. They bring buyers and sellers tozether,
a very Important matter in business; for more
can be accomplished In a personal interview of
a few minutes than in days or weeks of corre
spondence. They benefit agents by simplifying
and expediting business. Tbeydonot have to
keep a large force under pay to
drum up business. It comes to
them. They Insure ,unity of action
among agents, by putting all members on an
equality. They compel uniformity of rates,
thus making throat-cutting impossible, and
guaranteeing fairness to each other as well as
to their clients. Profits of individual agents
or Arms are as great, or even greater, than
under any other system, since sales are more
quickly made and expenses smaller. There1 are
real estate agents in Philadelphia who did next
to nothine before the exchange was estab
lished, but who have had all they could do
since, and some of them have amassed for
tunes. The result would be the same in Pitts
burg. There has been considerable talk here about
establishing a real estate exchange, and those
favoring it even went so far as to appoint a
committee to visit Philadelphia, New York
and Chicago to examine the workings of the
institutions in those places and report; but for
some reason the report has been held back and
the matter allowed to drop almost out of sight.
Interest in it is reviving, however, and there is
ground for hope that the project will yet be
carried out. Some of the most influential busi
ness men of the city are in favor of an ex
change, and it is Intimated that they will soon
take steps to bring the question to a direct
issue. If this be done with anything like
unanimity on the part of friends of the enter
prise, the result cannot be doubtful. Pitts
burg will have a real estate exchange.
History fails to record a more signal collapse
of a real estate boom than that which broke out
in Los Angeles and the adjacent counties in
Southern California in 1SS8 and 1S87. The fall
in values has been something perfectly enor
mous. At Oak Knoll lots which sold two years
ago for S1.500 at present find no takers at 1100;
large tracts of alkali lands, at one time laid out
in lots, but at present the home of horned toads
and jack-rabbits, are assessed it S60 an acre, and
are not worth one-tenth the sum; and a list of
property can be shown which had been sold for
prices aggregating $103,980, and which at pres
ent are not worth their assessed value some

comprising 79.350 town lots enough, say, for
300,000 people, and nearly 40,000 more than there
are In New York between Fifty-ninth and One

there are 2,351 people living In these towns
Border City had 1,920 lots, and not a single irf

tary watchman, who looks after an expensive
hotel and a deserted town.
Booms and balloons are mnchthe saxre. They
go up In fine style, amid the applause of
thoughtless people, but nearly always come
down in a collapsed condition.
It seems that farming in New England is
playing out. It certainly Is in Vermont, if the
following may be credited, and it comes from
so high a sonrce that few will be disposed to
dispute its truthfulness. A party of State of
ficials, among whom was Mr. George Valen
tine, while standing on a hill in Bennington
county, and looking over the valley of the
West river, a tributary of the Connecticut, a
few days ago, counted 15 contiguous farms, of
perhaps 100 acres each, all fenced, with dwell
ing houses and barns in at least tolerable con
dition, withont a single Inhabitant. Beyond,
toward the Connecticut, but hidden by the
groves in the valley, were, as tbey knew, 15
more also deserted, yet all well situated and
still showing signs of their former fertility.
Statistics show that a similar condition pre
vails all over the State. In Windham county
alone are more than 40,000 acres of land, once
cultivated, but now deserted, and in the whole
State the number of abandoned farms, com
plete with bouses, fences, barns and outbuild
ings, mnst be several thousand. Yet Vermont
is one of the pleasantest, healthiest, most fer
tile and most civilized States in the Union. In
its river valleys is no malaria, while its bills are
covered to the summit with vegetation.
The reckless agriculture which has made
portions of the country nearly barren has never
been favored in Vermont, where a century or
more of stock farming has rather enriched than
exhausted the soil; yet the people who once
found happy homes there have crowded into
the towns, or have left the State altogether. In
30 years, from 1850 to 1880, the increase of popu
lation in Vermont was 5 per cent, while the
population of the whole country was more than
doubled, and that of the adjoining State of
Massachusetts increased by nearly 80 per cent.
It Is not a little curious that a region so favored
in climate and position should be retrograding
so rapidly. There is material here for political
economists to ponder over.
When men begin first to become familiar
with the methods of measuring mechanical
power they often speculate on where the breed
of horses is to be found which can keep at
work raising 33,000 pounds one foot per minute,
or the equivalent, which Is familiar to men ac
customed to pile driving by horse power, of
raising StO pounds 100 feet per minute. Since
33,000 pounds raised one foot per minute is
called one horse-power, it is natural for people
to suppose that the engineers who established
that unit of measurement based it on the
actual work performed by horses. But that
was not the case. The horse power unit was
established by James Watt about a century
ago, and the figures were settled in a curious
way. Watt, in his usual careful manner, pro
ceeded to find out the average work which the
horses of his district could perform, and he
per minute was about an actual horse power.
At this time be was employed In the manu
facture of engine, and had almost a monopoly
of the engine building trade. Customers were
so hard to find that all kinds of artificial en
couragements were considered necessary to in
duce power users to buy steam engines. Asa
method of encouraging business. Watt offered
to sell-engines reckoning 83,000 foot-pounds to
a horse power, or one-third more than the ac
tual. And thus, what ras Intended as a tem
porary expedient to promote business, has been
the means of giving a false unit of a very im
portant measurement to the world.

gas opened a little weaker than the day before,
but picked up and dosed about the same. The
tractions, also, showed a slight loss of staying
power, but not enough to excite either side of
Pleasant Valley Bailway and Junction Bail
road were the only really strong shares, and
each of them scored a handsome advance. The

An Advance In Refined Puts Prices Vp k
What there was of strength in the oil market
yesterday was tho result of an advance of 10
points in case oil and 5 points in winter white.
This set New York and Pittsburg to buying,
which ran the price up in the afternoon to
110, the highest point But; ail in all, it was
a light day, the market being narrow and
sensitive, showing the want of a bold, ener
getic leader to take the bull by the horns, as It

The well on the Davis farm was reported doing
about 20 barrels an hour, but it was hardly
mentioned as a factor in the market. The
working stock of oil is so scarce that one or
half a dozen wells make a very slight impres
sion. The fact cannot be ignored that all the
conditions are bullish, and unless prevented by
manipulation the upward movement will be

New York, Nowmber 19 The markefwas
again under the influence of tight money to
day, and the result was less business, with a
general weakening with material losses In
many of the active stocks Is the outcome of
the day's trading. Money was easier in the
earlier portion of the day, but generally hard
ened, and per cent was the maximum rate ex
acted during the day. That this hardening of
the money rate is caused by manipulation is
the general opinion. St. Paul, Union Paciflc,
Reading, Lackawanna and Louisville and
Nashville were the principal stocks in the
usually active list; but tbe movement was not
sharp, and was spread along through the day,
no rallying of importance breaking the mo
notony of the steady shading off of prices
which assumed large proportions as tbe day
drew to a close.
Among the trusts Cotton Oil became strong,
though the only reason for this was that tho
time lor depositing nnder the plan of reorgani
zation expires to-morrow. The most violent
fluctuations were furnished in Tennessee Coal,
which lost all the improvement ot yesterday,
dropping from 80 to 71 at one drop. The lower
firices of the day were generally reached in the
ast hour, when the selling again became prom
inent. The close was farly active and heavy
to weak at close to the lowest figures. Every
thing is lower to-night.
Railroad bonds were quiet to dull, and the
dealings were more than usually devoid of fea
ture. The tone of the market was heavy, in
close sympathy with that of stocks. The sales
were only $1,095,000. There were few im

Coffee Is the uncertain factory of grocery
trade. Markets in New York to-day were very
feverish. An advance of e on green coffee Is
reported. Thefutnreof trade is about as un
certain as the newBrazyiau republic. There
was, however, a very strong coffee market
previous to tbe revolution, and whatever comes
of the new movement in Brazil, present prices
will no doubt be sustained. A leadipg jobber
said to-day: "Higher priced coffee is an assured
fact, irrespective of Brazilian revolutions.
Dealers have been laying In large stocks for
the past few weeks in the faith of a rise. Our
customers have been duplicating orders for the
past ten days, and stock is moving out more
freely of lata than for mouths past; If Dora

Eight yean ago cancer came on my lower
lip. It took off my under Up from one side to
the other, and down to my chin. I had it
treated by burning, and got to weak that I did
not think that I could stand it much longer
After much suffering I discarded all other
treatment, and began taking Swift's Specific,
and tbe cancer soon began to heal, and ma
short time it was completely healed anal was
entirely well. It Is now over three years since
I got well, and there has been no sign of any
return of the disease. I know It was cancer,
and I know It was cured alone by 8. 8. 8.
