OrncK or Pittsburg Dispatch, )
Tuesday, November Hi. I8S9. 1
November weather has been a great boost
to the trade in rubber shoes and boots. Oar
jobbers report & difficulty of late in hating
orders filled, as factories are unusually
veil cleaned out for this time of the year.
An advance in prices at an early day is
generally expected. In the jobbing shoe
trade November has made the best showing
of any month this year. The latter part of
lat year made a good showing, bnt the year
18S9 opened with trade very slack. This
slowness continued through the spring and
summer. Our local trade did not ptcL up until
September. Since the beginning of that month
there has been unusual activity, and the trade
is now at its best for this year. All siens point
to a continuance of this ac ivity from now on
to the close of the j ear. If these signs do not
fail, the lost time of soring and summer will be
fully made up, and Jhe year's record equal that
of last year.
Ontlook for Footwear.
One of the leading jobbers thus puts the sit
uation And outlook of the boot and shoe trade:
"We have not been able ot late to secure
from the factories enouch rubber boots to fill
orders. One of the largest factories in the
country, located at New Haven, is away behind
on orders, and is advertising for workmen to
help them out all over the country. We have
been able to meet demands for other rubber
Roods, Dot with some difficulty, and there js no
accumulated stock, as we had a 5 ear ago at this
time. In the general line of foot w ear we have
been short of a full supply all fall, and have
frequently found It difficult to till orders. At
times we have been away behind in orders, and
when SO to 100 cases came in, after a few days
delay, the; were gobbled up like hot cake.
"A result of this scarcity is seen in a stiffen
ing of nrices, and prospects now are that peo
ple in the f mure will pay more for footwear
than they have been doing of late. A hard
winter will certainly brine an advance in our
goods, and, in any event, w e are sure to have
Drysoods Get n Dumper.
The effects of continuous rains and wretched
costry roads Is as mnch felt In tbedrygoods
trade as any other. Drummers have found
very hard or rather soft roads to travel through
Pittsburg's bailiwick the past few weeks.
Orders have not been coming in so freely as
was expected at the beginning of the month;
but the weather has been entirely responsible
for this. Notwithstandmcthis adverse influ
ence, November's wholesale drycoids trade ex
ceeds in volume that of last November, and
the same is true of all the fall months.
Said one of our leading jobbers this after
noon: 'If we can but have a few weeks of
sharp, frosty weather, we will easily make up
for lost time, and in any event our volume of
trade will go far beyond last fall. Prices of all
staple drvgoods are stiffening, and the outlook
is for a higher level of prices."
Provision Down to Hard Pan.
Advices received by one of our leading pork
packers this rooming from Chicago, are that
receipts ot hogs there to-day were 35,000 head,
- and that the inside pnee there for the best was
13 7563 SO. At East Liberty the same range is
quoted as at Chicago. A year ago at this time
prices were fully 51 50 higher per 100 than now.
There has been no perceptible effect on provi
sion markets from this late drop in bogs.
The truth is that prices of provisions had for
some time been down to hard pan. and there
was no lower deep. In order to a reasonable
profit on hams, shonlders and lard at present
rates, the outside price of hogs shonld be 13 50,
and it is the opinion of many that this will be
the level at which markets will settle. A large
ueaier in nog products, predicted inrougn tnis
column months ago that hogs would go below
fi before the year closed. Many tbnbght the
prediction a wild one. The same dealer now
thinks that (3 50 will be reached, before the
present downward movement is checked, and
regards this as a sufficient price in view of the
prices at which hog products must be sold.
Elevators for tbe Far Wnl.
The one concern of this city which manu
factures elevators, namely the Marshall foun
dry on Diamond street, reports no boom, but a
full line of trade, and business fully up to anv
previous season. A member of this old-time
firm was seen to-day, and reported that orders
were coming in freely, chiefly from tbe West.
Two elevators are in process of construction by
the Marsballs for a new pottery in Seattle,
'Washington State. Elevators for private
dwellings are growing steadily in favor, and a
goodly number of tbe finer residences of the
city are furnished with these appointments.

Chicago A fair business was transacted in
wheat to-day, and the feeling developed was
rather stronger, with operators rather inclined
to the bull side, the majority no doubt buying
on the reactionlheory believing that some ad
vance should follow after the recent decline,
though some investment buying also occurred.
There was fair buying lor December by shorts.
A prominent trader was credited with selling
fair quantities. The market opened c higher
and held firmly throughout most of the ses

and Jc higher for May than yesterday.
Foreign advices quoted wheat quiet and
steady, closing firm with No. 2 spring wheat
spot quoted Id higher. The quantity on ocean
passage was reported to have; decreased 360,000
bushels, and this was one of tbe strengthening
features of the market, Tbe receipts in the
Northwest continue free, though farmers de
liveries are reported falling off.
In corn a moderate trade was transacted
within narrow limits, and the feeling developed
was on the whole a little firmer. A good pro
portion of to-day's business ccunstea of selling
December and buying January and May. One
house purchased about 500,000 bushels May and
sold a like amount of December at a difference

ALLEGHEKI BUILDING INSPECTOR
An important real estate transaction,
which had been hanging fire for some time,
was closed np yesterday. George Sick, a
brother of Mr. Dick, or the People's Store,
bought a vacant lot 105x200 at the corner of
Negley and Penn avenues, for which he
paid J13.4E0, or a fraction over f 128 a front
foot. It 1) understood that Mr. Sick
will build on the property nest spring.
Information from reliable sources confirms
the statement made in The Dispatch a
few days since that business in mortgages is
decidedly better than a month ago. For
some time the applications were lor small
amounts, ranging from $1,000 to J5.000; now
they are for larger sums, with a view to
making improvements in the spring. Some
extensive operations in realty have been
heard of within a day or two, for which
money is being sought. The scarcity of
small houses has set some of the capitalists
and contractors to thinking and making in
quiry for sites and material with a view to
supplying this great want, and there is
reason for believing that their Inquiries will re
sult in large investments in that direction next
Money is plenty for loans of moderate
amounts, and the persons who desire to place
them are, as a general thfng, financiers and
merchants who can spare from 51.000 to J10.000
from their earnings. This shows very clearly
that business is active and profitable, and that
the men who conduct it are not pinched for
means. After the January settlements they
will be in a position to Invest still more largely
in realty and expand th'elr building operations.
The strongest possible indication of the sub
stantial condition of the real estate market is
the fact that cool-headed business men of all
classes are beginning to regard it as the best
and safest investment, and are putting their
money into it with a liberality which proves
Allegheny City Is large enough and import
ant enough to have a building inspector. New
bouses are going up so rapidly that there
should be some one whose especial duty it is to
look after th'em and see that they conform to
the law. Life and property are Involved, and
tbe small additional expense which such an
oflicer would cost the city should not be allowed
to stand in the way.
The dnties of the office are now discharged
and ably, too, so far as his time allows, by the
City Engineer, but to require him to do double
duty in affairs of the utmost importance to the
community is asking entirely too much. Bestde,
it involves a large element of risk, which the
city cannot afford to assnme for the sake of
saving afewbundreddolIarsannually.lt Is to be
hoped that the movement on the Nortbside for
the appointment of a building inspector will
have a favorable result.
The time for signing tbe agreement for
changing moving day from April 1 to Slay 1, In
order to make it available next spring, is rap
idly passing. So far the attitnde of the land
lords to this important matter has been one of
indifference. It Is of great importance to a
large part of the community, and should not be
ignored. Tenants shonld bestir themselves
atd bring owners to the scratch. Their tardi
ness may spring from thoughtlessness rather
than indifference, and a little moral pressure
may be all that is necessary to induce tbem to
give the proposition their approval. The ex
periment Is worth trying.
The increased and increasing expense of
living in the more central and densely copulated
parts of the city is causing the outer wards to
build np rapidly, among others tbe Thirty
fifth, better known as Duquesne Heights. The
Assessor of that ward reports that 73 new
houses have gone up there since his assessment
a year ago, and many others are being built.
Another advantage that this ward possesses is
tha property is cheap compared with other
locities. The location Is very desirable, with
good schools, city water and natural gas, and it
is very easily and cheaply reached.
A BETTER FEELING.
Some Stocks Score Adrances, While Other
Hold Their Own.
Although tbe sales of stocks were lighter
yesterday than on the day before, a larger num
ber of shares were traded in, and tbe feeling
was better all around. Orders for most of tbe
f ayontes are said to have been received within
a day or two, some of them from the East.
Tbe knowledge of this accounts for the im
provement. Luster Mining Company was dealt in for the
first time in a regular way. According to state
ments recently made the property is in good
condition, with an encouraging outlook. This
has stimulated Interest in the stock, and started
a good demand for it. The sales were 218
shares ranging from 15 in the morning to 14
in tbe afternoon. At the close it was held at
pleasant Valley Hallway was another strong
feature, selling at 23, the highest point ever
reached. It closed at 23 bid and 24 asked.
Philadelphia Qas was- fractionally stronger,
but in light demand. Central Traction was
firm and neglected. Pittsburg Traction about
held its own. Citizens' was passed in silence.
Of thesenropertiesitcanbe said that while
they are dull on tbe surface there Is a good
"demand for them outside, indicating that in
vestors have confidence in their outcome.
The rest of the list showed no particular
change either way, the few fluctuations thai
occurred being for insignificant fractions.

Conl Brenka lis Record.
Nrw York. November 28. The stock market
was quiet in all its departments to-day, and
while the general list was moved back and
forth within the narrowest limits, there were a
few marked movements by less than a half
dozen stbeks, which gave the trading all tbe
character it possessed. The operators now in
terested In tbe matket bare assumed a waiting
attitude, and the bears are afraid to make such
drives as they have been in tbe habit of doing
for the past two months, and confined their
operations to special stocks which they have
reason to believe are particularly vulnerable.
There was less pressure upon Atchison to-day,
though the stock was still the most active one
on the list, and while it retired to still lower
figures than it reached yesterday the liquida
tion waa apparently ended. f
There was some selling for Boston account,
and also some short stock put out, but cover
ing of shorts was a large proportion of tbe buy
ing, with a liberal sprinkling of purchases for a
turn on the bull side, New England was a
marked contrast to Atchisou, and it was
specially strong, especially In the afternoon,
and it was one of tbe few stocks showing a ma
terial advance this evening, while it was second
only to Atchison in amount or business done.
Ontario and Western, after occupying a prom
inent position tor two hours, dropped out of
sight almost entirely, and tbe demand for tbe
stock suddenly disappeared. Among the other
low-priced specialties Denver, Texas and Ft.
Worth was tbe most prominent, and altera
further recession to 86 it rallied and rose 3 per
cent -on a large business. Missouri Pacific
came in for some attention from tbe bears, but !
its nucxoations were unimportant tnrougnout
the day and its final change insignificant.
The weak points in the list were ban Fran
cisco and Jersey Central, but the former was
most interesting, the preferred stock espec
ially. The .common soldat 20 against 24 the
same time last week, and as low as 25 was bid
for It. The preferred opened at 48K49i last
evening, and declined X, finally closing at 46.
Those who should know could give no reason
for the drop, but there were numerous rumors
afloat such as dissensions In tbe Board of Di
rectors, tbe resignation of the President and
the suspension of dividends, against which the
officers say the question of dividend has not
been discussed, and tbe earnings are greater
tban ever before in tbe hi'toryjot tbet-'ouipaar.
Tennessee Cal resumed its upward march
and reached still higher figures tban ever be
fore. The fueling was mixed at tbe opening,
and tbe subsequent operations, except m the
stock mentioned, were of little consequence.

The Pwr j financial article says: Whatever
may be the temporary effects from day to day
of the overouving by sanguine bulls, who
spread their capital out too thinly, or the over
selling of bears whd are betting on the incau
tionsnessof the balls, there certainly has not
been a time for several years when all the legi
timate arguments in favor of higher prices for
the majority of railroad stocks were so indispu
table as now. Tbe money question lr almost
only a temporary one, and the Onnsual profit
ableness of general mercantile and industrial
business this year Insures a largely increased
demand for investment before next February.
So far as rallrdad stocks mar invite this in
vestment, there has certainly been a great im
provement In tbclr prospects In the last two
month, an lnlprovcment not only over the time
previous to September J, bnt over the same
period last year. The largo earnings of all the
Vanderbilt roads are a significant featnre of
general railroad business 'of the country, indi
cating a prosperity which can scarcely fail to
have its effect to advance the prices of stocks
within a month or so.

MISS L MILLER,
A lady well known in Pittsburg and Alle

titude of troubles. The catarrhal poison in
her blood affected her whole system. She
had a dropping of mucus from her head into
her throat, which, was very tenacious and
bard to raise. She had no appetite, felt
bloated and distressed after eating, and she
would often vomit tip her food, bhe had
much pain on the top of her head, was dizzy
and very nervous. She could get bnt little
sleep, and got np in the morning more tired
than when she went to bed. Thedisease
also extended to ber kidneys, giving ber
much pain across the small of her back. She
also suffered from diseases peculiar to women,
and had many other aches and pains too
numerous to mention. After becoming cared
ly the physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspep
