Weather is Adverse to Trade in Mar
ket Basket Materials.
SUPPLY OF GAME IS ABOVE DEMAKD
Fair Supply of Salmon and Herring, but
White Fish Scarce.
A QUIET WEEK IN FIiOKAL LINES
OFFICE OF FITT8BTOQ DISPATCH, 1
Feidat. November 'A 18S8.
Market-basket materials are little changed
in price from rates of last Saturday. The
weather has been unfavorable to trade all
alorjg- the line. Country people find it
next to impossible to get their stuff to mar
ket, owing to bottomless roads.
Choice butter is very firm, and the drift is
toward higher prices. Fresh country eggs
are scarce and firm at higher figures than last
Saturday. Soft weather has been adverse to
game and poultry, which show downward ten
dencies. Supply is large, and the only salvation
lor shippers is a few days ot crisp, frosty
Gobblers Are Gobbled.
Dealers predict a scarcity and higher prices
for Thanksgiving turkeys next week, owing to
the deplorable condition of the country roads.
There Is little doubt that we could Rive thanks
over a cheaper turkey thiB week than we will
be able to do at the legally appointed time for
gratitude. In fruit and vegetable lines there
are no changes. Tomatoes are still in good
supply at old rates.
Grapes are practically at an end for this sea
son, aDd another week will undoubtedly finish
Oat of the Depths.
At the fish stalls it was learned that the sup
ply of white fish falls far below the demand.
Salmon, trout and herring are in fair supply,
but there is no excess. In the next ten days
frozen fish will put in theirappearance, accord
ing to former experience.
The oyster supply is limited and standard
grades roust soon advance. There is now little
or no margin of profit to dealers. Low grades,
or what are called down the bay snaps, are
plenty and weak.
Florists complain of weather. The first
hyacinths of the season put in their appear
ance this week. Violets nice and fresh are also
on the stalls. Chrysanthemums are still in
splendid shape, but their day will soon be over.
Following are retail prices of market basket
materials as furnished by leading dealers:

Heavy Dumping at Lone Wheat Gives

Chicago Trading in wheat was more active
to-day, and there was considerable liqui
dation of long wheat Tbe opening was
about 58c lower for December and J4c
lower tor May, and later declined lc more
for the former and Jfe -more for the latter
future, closing IJc lower for December and
lKc lower for May than closing figures on
It was claimed that the decline was partly a
bucket-shop raid to force out a lot of long
wheat held by their customers on small mar
gins. In com the increased movement and the re-i
action in wheat created an easier feeling in
this market, and transactions were at slightly
lower prices, though no material decline was
In oats there was considerable pressure to
sell, but no demand of consequence except one
large local operator who bought May every
time the price declined. The near futures were

Caused in Business Circles tj Fail
ure of the Lawrence Bank.
THB SPECULATIVE INTEREST
May be Pinched, tut Nothing Else Will Ex
perience the Least Trouble
NEW ENTEEPE1SE AT WILKINSBURG
The Lawrence Bank failure was a fruitful
sonrce of conversation in business circles
yesterday. "While the event was deplored
as a misfortune to the people directly
affected, there was nothing in it, so far as
could be seen, to cause apprehensions of
untside complications. A financier re
marked that the worst he could see was tbe
possibility of the people becoming fright
ened and making runs on other banks, but
this was too improbable to be seriously
One of the oldest bank cashiers in the city
had this to say: "The fallnre will no doubt be
a serious blow to Lawrenceville," but it will
scarcely be felt beyond. No other local finan
cial institution is in any way involved, but if
any were, it would hardly cause a ripple on the
surface. We passed sately through the Johns
town calamity, which wiped out millions, and
to even think of being floored by the failure of
a little private bank is preposterous. The city
is so prosperous that the affair will be for
gotten, except by the sufferers, in a week. All
that is necessary to enable us to come out with
flyinc colors is for every one to keep cool and
CO about bis business as if nothing out of the
usual had happened."
The failure was extensively discussed on
'Change, and while no lastinc injury to tbe
speculative interest was expected to result
from it, tbe opinion was very generally ex
pressed that it would serve to make investors
more cautious, and in this way restrict busi
ness in stocks and oil until the scare wore oft

An electric light company has been chartered
and there is a movement, to establish a large

Here is an opening for some enterprising
Fittsbnrger. The Webster Standard, published
atMarshfiold, Mo., says that from indications
recently developed in several water wells drilled
there within tbe past three months, it seems
more than probable that Marsbfleld and vicin
ity are underlaid with an oil bearing strata. In
one well, at a depth of 77 feet, oil was found in
such quantities as to cover the bucket and ves
sels in which it was emptied, so as to render
them unfit for domestic use. The Standard
further says: "Some action should be taken
toward raising a fund to put down a test well,
or to induce capital to do so. We shall be glad
to correspond with any parties interested, as we
firmly believe that such a test would prove that
we have most wonderful undeveloped re
Tbe Avonmore Land and Improvement Com

The principal office of the company will be in
that city. It is expected that a large locomo
tive works and a town will be built on the site.
The land has a river front of three miles.
In regaid to the Glasgow iron market, a re
cent letter from there contains tbe following:
"As I predicted, the effect of the orders to
Glasgow brokers from speculative buyers in
the South was to cause an increase on Tuesday
last from 58s. 4d. to 60s. 4d. cash.in the price
of Scotch iron. As there are always plenty of
timid operators, there was on the following
day a considerable amount of selling done,
and the result was that values fell to SSs. lid.,
but afterward recovered to 59s. 3d. Since then
tbey bave fallen again, and prices closed on
Thursday between 56s. and 57s.
"There is no doubt that this result is purely
temporary, due to the influences of the timor
ous selling policy to wbich I have referred.
Notwithstanding this serious fall, Scotch war
rants still close tbe week with an advance of
Is. per ton? The brokers in Glasgow to a man
believe that warrants will be 10s. per ton dearer
before they begin to relapse. They find ground
for this hopefulness in the fact that stocks are
still decreasing at the rate of about 4,000 tons
weekly, and that the manufactured iron and
steel makers are about as busy as they can
A British consular report states that the im
port ot coal from tbe United States to tbe port
of Havana amounted to 97,417 tons in 1S8S as
against 53.255 tons In 1887. and that from Great
Britain to 50,378 tons as against 74,843. Thus,
tbe American import exceeded tbe average of
the last ten yean, which is calculated at about
06,000 tons, and was larger than that of any
year during the same period, while ihe Import
from Great Britain fell far short of its average
of 80,000 tons, and is the smallest recorded in
the same decade. That a further alteration in
the relative proportions of tbe coal imports
from Great Britain and the United States may
take place is not improbable.
Commenting upon this the American Manu
facturer remarks: "We doubt if a better in
vestment of tbe capital of Pittsburg and other
cities in tbe valley of the Mississippi could be
made than in a large shipyard on tbe Gulf, in
the market tho construction and sailing of the
ships there built would give all the products,
manufactured and natural, of the valley."
Pittsburg is so largely interested in the in
troduction and development of rapid transit
that anything new upon tbe subject possesses
more tban ordinary interest. A company is
forrqing at Indianapolis in wbich President J.
C. Shaffer, of the local street railway company,
is said to be interested, to introduce into In
diana tbe Judson motor for street railways.
Tho principle of the revolving screw in a modl
ned form is used in propelling tbe car. In the
middle of the track and extending the entire
length of tbe line is a revolving shaft or drum

pressed upon the revolving drum. The speed
of the car and tbe direction are regulated by
tbe angle at wbich these small wheels impinge

It is asserted by the men who control the In

According to a German paper, a Dresden firm
has introduced glass pipes for tbe transmission
of water. They are made sufficiently thick to
withstand the pressure, and, for the prevention
of breakage as far as that maybe possible, tbey
are covered with asphalt, which in time is be
strewn on tbe outer surface, into fine sand.
These pipes are designed to take the place of
lay, bad iron and otber water pipes. It is
claimed for them that they completely with
stand the moisture of the earth in which they
are laid, that they are not affected by acids and
alkalis, do not absorb gases, and offer no op
portunity for tbe adherence of any sediment
that may be In the water.
THE FEELING IN ST0CK8,
Brokers Wnltlns; Until the Cloads Roll by
Gas Shares Weak.
The only cheerful feature of tbe stock mar
ket yesterday, was the strength of local rail
road shares. Tbe good condition of the roads,
and "their large earnings are bringing these
stocks Into prominence as investments. Tbe
natural gas shares were all weak, except
Bridgewater, which was bid up to32. Phila
delphia opened with sales at 31, and closed at
SOK, with 31 asked.
There was very little disposition on the part
of the brokers to push things. One ot them
said, "Scarcity of funds for speculation, added
to the bank failure, has taken the life out of
tbe market. What little was done to-day was
on urgent orders. There will be a lull, I think,
until the full extent of the bank failure is
known. Speculation is dangerous at best, and
no one who knows anything about it is willing
to operate with a cloud on the financial hori
zon." Sales at both calls were 3Si shares. Tb o busi

Plenty of Cash to Keep the Wheels of
Bnslness in Motion.
There was a good degree of activity in the
local money market yesterday, applications for
loans being rathermore numerous and pressing
than usual, and rates firm at 67 per cent.
While funds for ordinary purposes were by no
means tight, some discrimination was made in
favor of regular customers, outsiders being
subjected to some delay, while their collateral
was undergoing examination.
The great expansion of business within tbe
last three or four months has absorbed much
of the idle capital, of which complaint was
made early in the season, and rendered neces
sary a more conservative policy In regard to
making loans; bnt there is no lack of funds for
regular business, and this should be kept in
mind in the midst of many conflicting and sen

DABBLERS IN OIL.
Necessity of Shorts Gives Bnlls a Chance
to Run Up Prices.
Tbe iron market was entirely featrreless all
day yesterday until just before the close, when
tbe impression got abroad that the market was
oversold and tbe shorts started in to cover.
This was just what tbe bulls had been waiting
for, and tbey quickly forced the price up to the
highest point of the day. Tbe market opened
at $1 09: highest, $1 09; lowest. $1 OSJJ; clos
ing, $1 09K. Trading was light. Thursday's
clearances were 918,000 barrels.
While the conditions are undeniably bullish,
the prospect ot a material advance is not as
good as it might be. If there should be a drop
in refined, or if exports shonld fall off mate
rially, as they probably will after January, the
Standard will want cheaper oil. and what it
wants it usually gets, whether it be a Legisla
ture or a pipe line. This view is held by several
ot the most experienced local operators.

BEAKS AKD TRADERS
Do Nenrlr All the Bnslness In Railway
Shares Trnsts Prove to be Good
Stayers Bock Island and
New York, November 22. There was re
newed interest in tbe Trusts to-day, and the
stock market was less active for the regular
list but the unlisted department showed a
marked increase in the amount of business
done. The temper of the speculation was al
ternately weak aud strong within narrow
limits, the general drift ot prices being down
ward "luring the forenoon and upward forthe
remainder of the day. There was a great dis
inclination to trade, and the active work in the
market was done almost entirely by the bears
and traders. The news of the day was unim
portant, except for tbe announcement of some
arrangement between the Rock Island and the
Atchison, supposed to be similar to that be
tween the Northwestern and tbe Union Pacific
though the exact nature of tbe deal is still a
matter of speculation.
The bears made considerable effort to get tbe
prices of the Coalers, the Trusts and the South
ern stocks down; the only weak spot uncovered
was Wheeling and Lake Erie, which dropped
over 4 per cent on Belling 'orders said to be for
Boston account and induced by a rumor of a
further issue of preferred Stock. Tbe manipu
lation of the Trusts was not confined to one
side but efforts were made to lift as.well as to
depress them, and the bears gave it up toward
the close, when a marked upward movement
took place In all of them. Lead was sold on re
ports that tbe Trust would also be converted
into a corporation with a reduced capital. The
alliance between Rock Island and Atchison did
not seem to have much effect upon Rock Island
after tbe opening, but Atchison was strong,
especially in the afternoon, and scored a mate
rial advance on a moderate volume of business.
The deal also had a rather depressing influence
upon Union Pacific, but tbat stock fluctuated
within narrow limits, and its final change is in
significant Denver, Texas and Fc Worth pur
suing the same course.
The Chicago people were buyers or the North
ern Pacific, Oregon Transcontinental and Wis
consin Central, and a spurt of activity and
strength in these properties turned tbe tide of
prices at the beginning of tbe afternoon. There
was a drop of 1 per cent in New England also,
but this was afterward recovered. Rock Island
and Atchison were tbe only stocks showing any
material cuange at tne opening inis?morning,
both being up large fractions, thougb Wheel
ing and Lake Erie preferred was down over 1
percent Tbe weakness in the latter and Den
ver, Texas and Fort Worth and Lead Trnst was
the feature of tbe forenoon's trading, butr
everything strengthened in tbe afternoon, and
tbe market closed on a spurt ot strength with
most of the list, bnt slightly changed, and the
gains and losses abont evenly distributed.
Wheeling and Lake Erie preferred was the
only important decline, losing 2 per cent
while Cotton Oil is up 1, Sugar 1, and Chi
cago Gas IK.
Railroad bonds were quiet, and the sales of
all issues reached only $1,221,000, wbich was
well distributed. The market was stronger
tban it has been for some time, however, and
many bouds sbqw improvement to-night Lake
Erie and Western lsts, rose 2 to 113; Shenan
doah Valley lsts, receipts, 3 to 101, and
Atlantic and Pacific incomes 2 to 1
The JPosVs financial article says: In the
afternoon the report that some kind of an
alliance had been made between tbe Rock
Island and the Atchison was confirmed, but it
was generally conceded that in view of the fact
that the Atchison has a line of its own from
Atchison to Chicago, and which is a parallel
company with tbe Rock Island line from.
Chicago to Leavenworth, it could not be any
such compact as was made between the Union
Pacific and the Northwestern, and in all
probability amounts only to giving tbe Rock
Island the privilege of running through trains
from Chicago to tbe Pacific coast Neverthe
less it is another instance of the leading idea of
the present time, which is to unify tho manage
ment of tbe railroads without consolidating
the corporations or the property.
