'OFFICE OF PlTTSBUEO DISPATCH, 1
Wednesday. November 20. 18S9.
The ran of cattle on Monday was 85 loads
against 110 the previous Monday and 130
the week before. Since the beginning of
the week about 8 carloads hare been re
ceived, making the total receipts for this
week 93 carloads. The grade most in de
mand in onr markets, namely, light smooth
batcher cattle, weighing 1,000 to 1,200
pounds, were in light supply, and prices on
this grade were 10 to 20 cents higher than a
week ago. Low grades and ucaTy cattle
constituted the bulk of supplies, and for these
markets vere barely steady at last week's
prices. There were a number of loads of pood
heavy cattle from Ohio and Indiana, weighing
1,400 to 1.500 pounds; but only two loads were
bought for export purposes, the balance being
forwarded to Eastern markets.
Plenty of Buyrm on Hand.
There was a fair attendance of buyers.
Good feeders were in good demand, and
brought better prices than they would have
brought a week ago, or, in fact, for some weeks
A load of feeders weighing 1,250 pounds was
sold at S3 80 this week, which a month ago
would cot hare brought above S3 25. The
buyer permitted his opportunity to pass, and,
while looking for further reduction, was
lorced to pay 50c per cwt. aboTe his former
fetockers are very slow, and can only bo sold
at liberal concessions. The season is over for
this class of cattle, and unless the buyer can
see a big bargain be is unwilling to invest.
The supply of light, tidy butcher cattle has
not been up to dniuaud for several weeks past.
Veal calves were in light supply, but the de
mand corresponded. Good fresh cows were in
fair supply, and sold up to last week's prices,
with demand good.
sheep nnd Lambs.
Supply was a shade larger than last week on
Monday aDd for choice grades markets were
steady at last week's prices. Medium grades
were 10c lower, while common and low grades
were dull and had to sell at any price. Lambs
sold on Monday about at last week's prices, but
since Monday there has been a decline of 10 to
15c per hundred. The highest quotation this
morning was $3 85. Pens were well cleaned
out at noon to-day, but the dregs were evi
dently disposed of by liberal concessions from
the demands made at the beginning of the
floss Tonch TJoltom Prices.
For the week past the receipts have been
heavy and the drift of markets has been
steadily downward. Monday's receipts were a
little below the average of the past ten days,
and H 10 was the ruling price for Philadel
phia; that day. Since Monday prices have de
clined, and the range yesterday for Philadel
phias and Yorkers was S3 80Q4 00.
Tuesday's markets uniformly show a decline,
as that is the great day for near by stock, which
are not up to standard. Hogs touched lower
nrices this week than for a number of years.
The best packers sold at Chicago within a day
or two at S3 bO, and quotations there this morn
ing, according to advices received by one of our
leading packing firms, were $3 85. The prices
of hogs at this date is folly $1 50 per 1(0 less
than at this time a year ago. An East Liberty
dealer who sold Philadelpias at 54 00 on Mon
day permitted a glance at his bonks, which
showed that on November 20, 1S8S. the same
grade of hogs were sold by him for 55 60.

CHICAGO Wheat The market presented no
new features to-day, and fluctuations were
limited within a Ke range. Business was
chiefly local and not much of that, and outside
orders were few. Prices hung around the
closing quotations of yesterday, the market
selling a shade above and closed about c
higher for December and e higher for May
than closing figures of yesterday. Local
tradeis felt rather bullish, bat outside support
was lacking, and the market did not develop
European market advices were rather strong,
tho tenor of private reports quoting wheat
offered moderately, feeling firm and prices
tending up, while public advices noted a Arm
feeling at unchanged prices. The receipts in
the Northwest continue large, though advices
state that deliveries are falling off considera
bly. Speculative trading centered chiefly in
May. There was a little better milling deman
to-day, but the inquiry was confined mainly to
the choice samples of the lower grades.
Corn A fair trade was reported within a
narrow limit, and the tone of the market was
relatively firmer, slight advances being estab
lished which were fairly well maintained until
the close. December and May as usual re
ceived the most attention, the former being in
good demand at times, one operator taking in
tbo neighborhood of 250,000 to SC0.O00 bushels,
and, as offerings were only moderate, an ad
vance followed. The market opened at about
the closing prices of yesterday, was inclined to
be easy at times, then advanced K8lc,became
quiet, closing a shade bet'er than yesterday.
Oats were fairly active but unsettled, with
fluctuations confined to a small range. Shorts
were the largest buyers, and bid prices upjc
On the advance offerings increased, but all the
orders to sell May at the top could not be exe
cuted owing to moderate buying. A weak feel
ing developed, and closing sales were at in
side. Pork Trading was moderately active,thnneh
chiefly for January delivery. Prices ruled 510c
higher and closed at about medium figures.
Lard A moderate trade was reported and
the feeling was quite strong, though prices
showed only a slight advance.
Short Rib Sides There was no particular ac
tivity to the market. Prices averaged about

A NOTE OF WABN1N6
Sonnded by a Conseryatiye Investor
in Local Real Estate.
THE MAEKET ALL EIGHT AS IT IS,
Sudden and Radical Enhancement of
Values Would Kill Business.
WORKING MENJIDST HAVE A CHANCE
To the Financial Editor of The Dispatch:
I am glad to see that you appreciate the
importance of a sound real estate market,
based on actual demand, and discourage all
attempts to get np a boom. The market is
all right as it is, and should be let alone
that is, artificial means should not be resort
ed to to stimulate prices. As land becomes
scarcer and the demand increases with the
growth of population, values will naturally
harden, and to this no reasonable person can
have objection. Fixity of vatucs on real estate
is impossible, and 'especially so in a growing
city like Pittsburg. As wealth and population
increase land becomes more and more valuable.
Enhancement of this kind is legitimate.
My object in writing this is to caution owners
of realty against forcing an advance. Such a
course would inflict a great injury npon tbe
city. It would repel capital and population,
and drive many away, who, finding it impossi
ble to acquire homes here, owing to their lim
ited means, would go elsewhere with more as
surance of success. It would react upon own
ers, who wonld soon find their property left on
their hands. There would be no demand for it.
There would be no market. This, it seems to
me. would be the inevitable result of much
higher prices than now prevail.
So; all things considered, I think realty had
better be left to take Its own course. It is now
one of the greatest Interests of the city, and to
cripple It by artificial means originating in
avarice, or growing out ot any other mercenary
motive, would bo to inflict a calamity upon the
city. As you stated a few days ago, Pittsburg
has entered upon her second stage or period of
growth. How. fast this will be depends almost
entirely upon the values set upon real estate.
If they be reasonable; such as working people
can afford to pay, the growth will be rapid
if exorbitant, it will be slow.
It should he remembered that from the very
nature of things Pittsburg cannot prosper with
out the co-operation of the labor elementto
which every Inducement should be held out,
and among these none is more powerful than
the assurance of cheap homes.
Pittsbuho, November 20.
There are railroad kings, iron kings, oil kings,
sugar kings and now an ivory king is proclaimed.
His name is Meyer, and he lives in Hamburg.
He is the greatest individual dealer in ivory in
the world. H,e is tho sole owner of commer
cial settlements and caravans in Africa and is
the only European dealer in elephant tusks
who is Independent of the great ivory auctions
which take place four times a year In London
nnd Liverpool. He possesses large factories
where different articles in ivory are manufact
ured and he supplies these with the raw ma
terial which his own hunters in the jungles of
the Dark Continout secure.
Abont 65,000 elephants are silled yearly in
Africa to supply the world's market with
ivory and 1,700,000 pounds is procured valued
at 4,000,000. This does not include what the
African Princes, who are great lovers of ivory,
reserve for themselves.
A thousand different articles are made out
of ivory to supply the demands of the markets
of the world, such as combs, brushes, prayer
book covers, wedding cards, paper cutters,
fans, billiard balls, knife handles.whist markers,
piano keys, cane handles, boxes, eta, not to
speak of the many carved objects of art. While
India produces only 10,000 pounds of ivory
yearly she is ona of the greatest consumers
owing to tbe vast amount of holy ivory that is
annually consecrated to Buddha.
King Ivory Meyer sold every year 70,000
billiard balls at from S3 to S3 apiece, but since
tbe new composition balls wero invented hi9
sales havo greatly decreased. Nearly 200,000
pianos are built every year on .both sides of the
Atlantic and they are supplied to a great ex
tent from the enormous factory owned by tbe
ivory king. It may sot be uninteresting to
know what ivory articles are most in demand
by tbe different nations. France uses the
most billiard balls, England the most knife
handles, Germany the most combs, and Amer
ica the most piano keys. This does not prove
that we are the most musical people in the
world, but simply that we manufacture the
largest number of pianos and organs.
The matter of washing 'clothes Is the most
Vexatious and troublesome job in all the range
of domestic affairs. Steam laundries have
been established in ail principal cities, hun
dreds of patents have been issued for washing
machines, and the heathen Chinee comes in as
a kind of a connecting link, but the fnct re
mains that 95 per cent of all the washing is done
by human hands with the assistance of an old
and simple device known as a washboard a de
vice which superseded the destructive "battling
stick" and bench of the pioneer days. The fa
vorite washboard is one covered with corru
gated metal, preferably zinc. The metal cov
ering Is used because of its durability over the
naked wood, and because It is supposed not to
be so destructive to clothing. These retail for
from 20 to 40 cents each. The consumption of
washboards is so enormous that there is a con
stant effort to simplify and cheapen them, and
with such success of late that a firm in Tennes
see is manufacturing a board made of grooved
white poplar, without any metal covering, which
is said to give perfect satisfaction. They are
made to retail at 15 to 20 cents each, and allow
the manufacturers and jobbers a living profit.
Their cheapness and merit are making tbem
immensely popular, not only in the South, but
North and East.

next to nothing. The first call passed without
a single transaction, and tbe last was not much
better, only 20 shares changing hands, 10 each
of Pittsburg Traction and Electric.
With so dead a marker, it follows that there
was no material change in prices. Bridgewater
Gas advanced to 23" bid on the report of tbe
early resumption ot dividends. The rest of tho
list about held its own. Orders "at the mar
ket" were said to be scarce, but there were a
good many below it.
A broker remarked: "Although the stock
market is dull, it is not so flat as some people
think. It is not a speculative market. Nearly
all sales are on orders. Hence, what we do is
legitimate. Such a market requires coolness
and caution, and movements are necessarily
slow. I don't expect much, if, any, improve
ment this year, but along in January, unless I
am verv much mistaken, we will have a stronsr.
active market. A good deal of money will be
set free about that time, and'conslderable of It
will, no doubt, be invested in local securities."

ENOUGH FOR BDSIKESB.
Money a Little Scarce, but by No Means
Tbe depressing influence of the execrable
weather with which Pittsburg has Been pun

the banks, as well as in business circles gen

but little falling off, as compared with previous

of the coming year and to contain all modern

action the firm says: "The fact that these
houses are selling so readily before they are
completed is a fair indication that purchasers
anticipate an advance in prices in that locality
and are taking advantage of that fact by pur
chasing at once. The well-known integrity of
tbe builders is a guarantee that the bouses
will be completed according to specifications.
The location and surroundings, being so near

THE BRAZIL TROUBLE
Bad Only n Temporary Effect Upon the
Stock Klarket A S-hnrp Movement
Among tbe Wpcclnllles Rnil-
rond liondi IJlI-1,
New York, November 20. Notwithstanding
that London sold some stocks on Monday
owing to vaguo apprehensions of monetary dis
turbances that might grow out of the Brazilian
revolution tbe general temper of the London
market is favorable tj higher prices for all
American stocks and investments, as is demon
strated by the avidity with which English capi
tal is bnying breweries, grain elevators and in
dustrial establishments of every sort in all
parts of the United States. There is still some
expectation that the Bank of England may
raise its rate of discount to-morrow, but tbe
scare in regard to South American affairs has
subsided and this morning the temper of the
London speculation was shown in tbe early
prices in London before tbe opening of this
market. Chicago is aUo bullish on the Granger
stqck, and between these two influences, the
stock market opened 0 higher for about
every stock on the UU
The abscsrd story started yesterday to the
effect that tbe Secretary of tbe Treasury was
about to call in tbe Government deposits in the
national banks was not believed by anyone
yesterday and was not tho cause ofyesterday's
lower prices, which were due almost entirely to
manipulation, and tbe recovery this forenoon
was not due to tho denial of the story ot the
proposed withdrawal of the Government de
posits, but to the buying of stocks by London
or Chicago both yesterday and to-day the bear
nartv are all in A ew York.
The Trust stocks were still heavy and lower.
though there was a little more strength in Cot
ton Oil certificates because of tbe extension of
the time to December L in which tbey may be
deposited with the Central Trust Company for
exchange for certificates of the proposed new
Corporate Cottou Seed Oil Company and also
because the deporltor is given tbe privilege of
withdrawing his Cotton Trust certificates at
any time before December 1, thus giving bim
the option to bave either tbe old or tbe new
stock at any time before that date. This only
removes the possibility of a squeeze in the old

Coal vibrated rapidly as usual, though its
fluctuations were not quite so violent as during
the past few days. Ontario and Western and
Denver, Texas and Ft. Worth were specially
strong and active, bnt the others were not so
prominent The trusts were inclined to weak
ness at first, but recovered later in the day and
while Sugar and Cotton Oil were active their
final changes were slight. The news of the day
was not of special importance, butit was almost
all of an encouraging character., In the last
hour a material improvement was made,
especially among the low-priced shares. The
close was quiet, but strong at about tbe best
prices of the day. The final declines are few in
number and for nnlmportant fractions, while

All dairy products are firm at quotations.
Cheese is firm at a shade higher prices than a

are weak. Apples firmer for choice stock.
Malaga grapes and California pears are scarce
and firm. Advices from sonrces of supply in
dicate light crops. The steady rains of the past
week have bad an unfavorable influence on
produce trade. Commission merchants along
Liberty street are doing not a little growling
because the city authorities have placed their
ban on using sidewalks and streets for storing
cabbage. There is objection both to smell and
occupying space, and a number of commission
men have been sued by city authorities on tbe
ground that their cabbage pyramids have be
come a public nuisancer Tbe position taken
by the city anthoritles is that no more cabbage
