There was an average run of cattle at

of the anticipated large consumption of
poultry for Thanksgiving week. The

gain. High grade cattle were firm at a

At East Liberty
to-day there was no material variation from
prices of last week on cattle, but hogs suifered
a sharp decline in a very large run. Hogs
touched the lowest point of the season, the out
Side price being $3 75g3 90. Advices from
Chicago to one of our leading packers this

of Thanksgiving is marked in light demand tor
This is the week of the year for poultry, and
staple meats are forced to the background un
til the people are done giving thanks, which
they prefer to do over turkey. A heavy dealer
in sheep and lambs from Butler county, who
pays weekly visits to our markets, said this
afternoon: 'I was forced to concede somewhat
on my stock, and expected nothing else, be
cause mutton is always at a .discount in
Thanksgiving times. I did not have as large
supply as usual, anticipating this situation, but
found demand even lighter than calculation."
Wheat nnd Floor.
In the current number of the Minneapolis
Zlillcr it is stated that the amount of wheat
already moved from farmers' hands in the
Northwest equals the total moved in the entire
12 months of the previous crop year. One im
portant line of elevators has already handled
50 per cent more wheat than it handled all last
year. In Dakota and a few sections of Minne
sota there is now very little left of wheat in
the granaries of farmers."
The great rush of wheat to markets of the
Northwest has weakened prices the past week,
bnt not sufficient to depress flour, which is
flrtnly held. Pittsburg flour dealers reportthat
they are not able to obtain concessions at
sources of supply which were freely offered a
few u eeks ago.

MAEKETS BY WIRE.
A Good Speculative Movement la Wheat,
but Prices Not Sustained Novem
ber Pork Lower Lard Weak
Chicaqo There was a fair speculative, trade
in wheat to-day, and rather more doing in
the way of buying December and selling May
on the supposition that the difference of iQ
5c may not bo sustained, and that these two
futures may again sell closer together. Prices
declined Kc 'or December, and c lor
May, and the closing was ic lower for Decem
ber and He lower for May than Saturday.
The market early was influenced by the visi
ble snpply. Operators calucated at the start
ou full 2,000,W bushels or over increase, and
this caused tree selling, but later postings
created the belief that .possibly not over half
this quantity would be shown, and this again
helped to rally the market slightly, but eased
off again when the figures were posted, show
ing 1.772,000 bushels increase. The points
showing the largest increase were Chicago,
Baltimore. Buffalo. Milwaukee, Minneapolis,
afloat at New York and the lakes. The de
creases were at Duluth, Kansas City. New
York, Philadelphia, Toledo and on the canal.
The principal feature of the market was the
reported falling off in farmers' deliveries in tho
Northwest Some operators calculated that,
with a crop of 90.000,000 bushels In the two
Dakotas and Minnesota, not more than 18.000,
000 to 20,000,000 bushels of wheat, deducting the
quantity required for seed, remain yet in
Corn'was quiet and steady early, but later
became fairly active and weak. The free
movement and the cooler weather, together
with the decline in wheat, had a weakening in
fluence, and lower prices were established on
the near futures, May ruling relatively steady.
The market opened a shade under the closing
prices of Saturday, was steady for a time, then
sold off nnder f reo offerings of December and
January XXc, there being some short cover
ing on the decline, ruled steady and closed K
c loner than Saturday.
Oats were quiet and easy. There was no
special desire on the part of operators to buy
heavily but fair orders to sell, but at the same
time holders showed an indisposition to force
In mess pork a fairly active trade was re-
Sorted. The feeling was easy, excepting for
Tovember delivery, and prices ruled 7K10c
lower, with the balk of the trading in Jan
uary. For short rib sides the market attracted very
little attention, and trading was unusually
light Prices exhibited very little change.
In lard a weak and unsettled feeling pre
vailed, and prices ruled 2JS5c lower. Trading
chiefly m November and January deliveries.

MARKET IN EXCELLENT SHAPE.
Pennsylyania Bailroad Schemes for a
Passenger Depot Downtown.
SOME DIFFICULTIES POINTED OUT
There continues to be a strong, healthy
feeling in the real estate market. The de
mand for business property in good loca
tions is on the increase, while that fur small
houses and vacant lots show no diminution.
But the best feature, perhaps, ot the mar
ket is that owners are not, as a rule, losing
their heads and advancing prices to a point
to deter buyers. Adherence to this policy -will
insure a continuance ot activity for an in
definite period. Enhancement will naturally
follow improvement and increase of popula
A great deal of wild talk is heard in regard
to alleged negotiations of the Pennsylvania
for a site for a depot downtown, and a number
of visionary real estate schemes have been
sprung upon the public as the direct result.
While the railroad authorities appreciate the
importance of landing passengers in the heart of
the city, instead of the outskirts, as now, and
would pay handsomely for the privilege, tney
realize that there are great difficulties in the
way, which they may not be able to overcome.
Their capital is not limitless, nor are they
endowed with autocratic power. Hence, while
they may propose, others may dispose. It
takes two to make a bargain, even with the
The comer of Fifth avenue and Smithfleld
street is one of the best business locations in
the city, and its acquisition by the railroad
would be a master stroke of policy.but the cost
would be enormous, without counting the
heavy expense that would have to be incurred
in opening up a way to it through Cherry alley
or any other thoroughfare, or even by the ele
vated system. If through the alley, all the
abutting houses would have to be torn uown
to make room for at least two tracks. It is easy
to see from this presentation of facts that the
project is of such magnitude as to render it
impracticable at present, if not lor all time.
As to the Dostoffice, mentioned in the same con
nection, if the Government shall conclude to
sell it, John Smith will have as good a chance to
become its owner as the Pennsylvania Rail
road. In business matters Uncle Sam is no
respecter of persons. The color of one man's
money is as good as that .of another. Beside,
there is nothing to base the opinion upon that
the property will be sold.
Should the Pennsylvania Railroad build a
depot downtown at all it is far more probable
that it will be on Seventh avenue, between
Grant and Cherry alley, or at Fifth avenue and
Grant than at Fifth and Smithfleld. The ap
proaches to either of these locations would be
comparatively easy, a great deal of expensive
right of way would be avoided, and passengers
would bo brought far enough downtown to
overcome their objections to the present depot
by halving the distance.
This talk and these rumors about therallroad
building a depot downtown are not new. The
subject has been agitated for a generation or
more, and its revival at this time has no more
significance, perhaps, than on any of the
former occasions when it was ventilated and
settled. While someone of the many plans
which the railroad people are said to be dis
cussing may be carried into effect sometime, as
a matter of necessity, real estate owners who
are building hopes of hlgn prices on mere
rumor, are making what may turn out to be a
serious mistake It is certain that the railroad
people have no thought of buying the city.
A new refining company has been formed in
Ohio, the organization of which has been going
on very quietly for some time, and which has
been the subject of a number of conflicting dis
patches. The new company is to be known as
the Geyser Oil Company, and it will have a
capital stock of S800,000. The territory con
trolled consists of 80.000 acres, situated alto
gether in Allen and Van Wert counties. South
west of Lima. The company will proceed at
once to lay a line from Lima to their pos
sessions, and are figuring on building a refinery
and placing the oil on the maiket as an ilium
inant. It is the largest transaction that has yet
taken place in the Ohio field outside of the
Standard Oil Company's deal.
The .Economist, published in the City of Mex
ico, the highest authority on Mexican finances,
trade and statistics, gives some interesting
facte concerning trade between that country
and the United States, which varies somewhat
from those published from Washington City.
The paper referred to says that in the fiscal year
ot 1887-8 the value of exports from the United
States to Mexico was in American coin 519,284,--675,
and that the value of exports from Mexico
to the United States during tho same period
was 823,294,000. These figures are regarded as
the most accurate thatbave ever been obtained,
and show that exports from the United States
to Mexico are several millions larger than here
tofore stated by either Mexican or -United
Anew type of elevator motor has been re
cently constructed, combining the advantages
of the smoothness of motion in the hydraulic
passenger elevator and the remarkable adapt
ability of electric motors to elevator works.
In the new system the cylinder and piston of
the hydraulic elevator has been substituted by
a long heavy screw and nut The screw is geared
to tho motor and the nut is attached to the
multiplying sheaves in the same manner as the
piston in the hydraulic elevator. In this way
any degree of speed up to 200 feet per minute
can be obtained with safety, and the smooth
ness of stopping and starting is fully equal to
the hydraulic elevator.
Bismarck's war on the American hog has
proved a financial boomerang. Many Berlin'
butchers have gone in bankruptcy in conse
quence ot the continued prohibition of the
importation of cattle and pigs. Another ques
tion is a scarcity of fat stock throughout Ger
many, and the consumption ot horseflesh is in
creasing. In Berlin alone 70 horses a day are
slaughtered, and the flesh being eagerly bought
at moderate prices.

ENOUGH FOR ALB.
A Good Demand for money, but Plenty to
There was a good demand for money at the
local banking Institutions yesterday, but there
was enough to go round and considerable to
spare. "There is no pinch," remarked a
cashier, "and we don't expect any." Checking
and depositing were heavy.
The Clearing House report was good enough
to cause Manager Chaplin to smile as lie read
ovef the figures. The exchanges were 12.708,

laid Baltimore in the shade last week, which

FLURRY IN OIL.
A Sharp Advance Followed br a Bad Break
There was quite a flurry in oil yesterday, and
fluctuations were wide and rapid for awhile.
Tho opening was H highest 11114, lowest
108 closing 107.
The strength came from an advance in re
fined. The reaction was due to heavy selling,
in which Fisher, of New York, was conspicu
ous. Finally, as the downward movement pro
gressed, everybody got loaded np, and there
was nobody to take the stuff. This and numer
ous stop orders intensified the weakness. The
feeling at the close was of the kind that is
called uncertain. Trading here was good, but
not particularly heavy.

Rnllrond Shares Respond to Saturday's
Good Bank Statement Realizing in
the Trusts Sngnr Wenk At
chison Damped Few
New YonK,November 25. The stock market
was only fairly active to-day and remained
weak and declining almost throughout the en
tire session, though the fluctuations in the reg
ular list were confined to small fractions as a
rule and the final changes are very irregular.
The influence of the good bank statement of
Saturday, together with the improved feeling
in London on American stocks, was seen at the
opening, which was generally at small fractions
better than Saturday's closing prices. There
was considerable realizing in the trusts to start
off with, and under the lead of sugar refineries
they were all materially lower before noon.
Among the specialties there were also marked
movements in the downward direction, and
San Francisco preferred and Denver, Texas
and Fort Worth each ran off over 1 per cent.
The general list was very little affected by
these movements owing to the continued
though moderate, purchases by London bouses,
though Richmond and West Point developed
most pronounced weakness and dropped off '
over 1 per cent also. The feature of the day
was then developed, which was the heavy sell
ing of Atchison. This was Uone in the face of
the announcement of the reorganization made

ment in order to dispose of their load of the
stock at an advantage. These sales were of
course snnnlemented bv free offerinm on the
jiart of the bears and traders, and the decline
in me siock was nut uueuseu until tne last
hour, when a drop of 2K per cent from the
price of the foreuoon had been scored. Re
newed weakness in sugar helped to demoralize
the list, but the concessions In values were in
few cases for more than slight fractious, and
in a few of the specialties marked strength
was developed, Tennessee Coal rising over 2
per cent and Wisconsin Central and others
The.Chesapeake and Ohio stocks, after open

was some reaction from the lowest prices in the

figures. The final changes are very evenly
divided between small gains and losses, but

Beck is a handsome and educated

If she is proven to be the child

MR. WALTER'S TROUBLE.
His Version of the Matter.
Of the hundreds of patients cured br the
physicians of the Polypathio Jledical Insti
tute during the past six months, perhaps
none have experienced more intense suffer
ing than has ilr. Henry Walter. The com
plication of aches and pains resulting from
rheuraatisrri, associated with i severe chronio
cough, caused him untold misery. Speak
ing of his trouble one day, he said: "A.
catarrhal secretion of mucus oiten dropped
down from my head into my throat. A hard,
dry cough so affected my lungs that my
breath became very short, I had a tired
feeling, and as I grew weaker my stomach
became involved. My food wonld sour on
my stomach, and I had sour, bitter eructa
tions of gas. I had pain over my eyes, and
oiten felt dizzy. My hands and feet were
continually cold, and I was also afflicted
with rheumatism. I would have sharp
pains in my side and back, and I would
sometimes have such a numb, dead feeling.
My disease gradually grew worse. One
day I happened to read in the papers'
an account of a person who had been cured
by the physicians oi the Polypathio Insti
tute of a disease similar to my own. I
therefore placed myself under their care,
and became entirely cared."
Mr. "Walter is a well-known gentleman,
and bis address will he furnished anyone by
calling at the Institute, 420 Penn avenue.
The physicians in charge treat success
fully all forms of kidney and urinary dis
eases. Also chronic diseases, including
those peculiar to women.
Positively no operations are performed, as
by their medicines and appliances, which
are not known to the general practice, the
ladies can themselves use the treatments.
