Fkidat. November 29. 18S9. 1
In the line of staple meats Thanksgiving
week is one of tbe off weeks of the year. The
large consumption of turkey is felt at the
batcher stalls. A Diamond 'Market butcher
reports that his sales are 10 to 15 per cent
below the average of the last few weeks, and
charges the decline up to the Thanksgiving
A decline in pork is due, as hogs are close
to $2 per Hundred lower.than at this time a
year ago. It is one ol the inexplicable
ieaturesof the butchers' trade that the con
sumer finds no reduction in his meat bills,
though cattle and hogs are 2c per pound lower
than at this time last year; choica steaks and
roasts are sold at the same old figures.
J-polling ihs Profile.
Butchers claim that hides, offal and boiling
meat are reduced so much that their profits
are no greater than they were a year ago. At
the fruit and vegetable stalls a fair week's
business is reported. About all that is now
offered in frnlt lines are tropical products ana
apples. Catawba crapes are still to be had.
but at advanced figures. Tomatoes, radishes
and cauliflowers have passed away for this sea
son. Onlv such old reliable vegetables as
potatoe. onions cabbage and turnips are now
to be found on tbe stalls. Prices in thee lines
do not vary from rates of last Saturday. The
demand for choice turkeys the past few days
lias been abovo supply. On the dav belore
Thanksgiving some were sold in Diamond
marketlna retail way at 26c per pound, the
highest price reached for years.
Plenty of Other Ponltry.
Other poultry has been In excessive supply
all the week, and holders are now willing to
dispose of stock approaching the border line
of aecay at whatever price they can get.
Game, too, has felt tbe influence of soft
weather, and dealers are left with an excess on
band. All poultry and game should sell cheaper
than for fronie time past, in view of the anxiety
of jobbers to unload stock. Fresh eggs are
seldom as scarce as now. The stores are glad
to pav 30c per dozen for country eggs, and at
this price are not able to secure sufficient sup
plies Tbe season for fresh fish is near its end.
Alter this week frozen stock will be on the
stalls. There is an unusual scarcity of all kinds
of ocean products, particularly whitefish. The
price of oysters is about the same as at Balti
more. Glory In the Oyeter Trade.
Dealers say they are working now for glory,
and not for boodle, as there is scarcely any
profit at present Baltimore price of oysters.
In floral lines there has been an active week's
trade and a decided advance on last or any re
cent week. Society shows signs of waking up,
and demand for beauteous things in floral lines
stead"y increases. A leading florist reports
that Thanksgiving brought unusual demand
upon his goods and that orders came in with a
rush not onlv from the city and suburb, bnt
from Greensburg, McKeeport, Steubenville
and othf nearby towns, so that ho had better
cans. f.- Thanksgiving in 1SS9 than in any re

MARKETS BY WIRE.
A Sqneezo In November Corn Sends Trices
Skyward Manipulation at tbe Bot
tom or the Flurry Wheat
Weaker Pork Easy.
Chicago. Wheat A moderate speculative
business was transacted to-day. and the feeling
was a little tame. Local traders were rather
inclined to the selling side, and prices averaged
lower. The buying was only of a moderate
character and rather scattered, though moder
ate purchases for May delivery were again re-
ported on foreign account. Fluctuations were
confined within a small range. Covering KM
The opening was Jc lower, eased off K more,
then rallied KKc Ml back again Js"C and
closed rffi lower than Wednesday.
There was nothing in the way of Importance
In outside news to affect the course of the
market. Cables were generally quite firm.
The receipts at Minneapolis and Dnluth,
although quite large, were smaller than same
days last week. Merchants reported having
received cables bidding an advance of 6d for
spring wheat over their offer earlier In tbe
Corn A general surprise was in store for
operators in this market to-day. and it devel
oped in the shape of a material advance in
prices. November, which closed Wednesday at
SZC opened to-day with sales at 33Ko to 34c,
and advanced, with a slight reaction, to sac.
The pit was tbe center of attraction, and great
excitement prevailed. This was tbe principal
feature of the day. The present low stock ot
contract corn in store, the last report making
the amount less than 600,000 bushels, made it
easy for manipulations, and a certain party or
parties have taken advantage of tbe situation,
there being a short interest reported of about
500,000 bushels, distributed thrdugh seven or
eight bouses here
The receipts of contract corn have been light,
only 30 to 35 per cent being of the contract
grade A certain prominent local speculator s
name was frequently mentioned In connection
with today's advance, it being the opinion
among certain traders that the operator above
mentioned was short, and the advance was due
to the purchase of a large local packer. Tbe
opening was unsettled. A very feverish feeling
Erevailed, trading being at a wide range.
rokcrs were In the cash crowd, and first sales
of car lots were reported at 35c and from this
up to 61c was paid. Outside of November the
other months were rather neglected, though
slight advances were scored in December and
Oats were quiet and steady, there being too
much excitement in corn for operators to give
oats special attention.
Mess Pork A little more strength wm ex
hibited early in the day, and prices ruled o7c
higher on the long deliveries. Later, the feel
ing was easier, and prices declined 10l2c
Lard The trading was moderate. Tbe feel
ing was stronger early, and prices ruled 2H5c
higher, with fair sales at the advance. Later,
tbe market receded again, and the market
closed rather quiet.

light. Prices exhibited very little change.

CHANGES IN THE AIR.
Movements on Foot Which Hay Great

DICKERS FOR ENTIRE BLOCKS.
Editor Weyand, of Bearer, Talks About
What fa Going on in the Valley.
A COMHUmTI THAT IS ALL AL1YE
The Monongahela river front has so far
failed to respond as desired to the spirit o f
improvement which permeates almost every
other part or the city; but this may be
changed before long, as there are some im
portant deals under way which, if carried
to a successful conclusion, will work some
thing of a revolution iri that locality. The
nature of these transactions cannot, in 'jus
tice to the parties interested, be given lor a
few days, but as several blocks are involved, it
will be seen at once that they are of consider
Few sections of tbe city possess business ad
vantages equal to those of the Monongahela
river front, and the scarcity of good sites else
where is directing attention to it In a manner
that promises large results in the near tntnre.
Although neglected for a long time, there is
reason for believing that a different policy will
soon be adopted, and this exceptionally favored
part of Pittsburg be lifted completely and per
manently out of tbe rat.
Editor Michael Weyand, of the Beaver Times,
was in tbe city yesterday to complete arrange
ments for putting some of bis real estate on
the market. Since the death of TJncle Jake
Zelgler and William Laird,Mr. Weyand claims
and the claim has not been disputed to be the
oldest country editor In continuous service in
the State, if not tbe United States. He has
been In the harness for more than fifty years.
Showing bnt little of the wear and tear of tbe
enormous amount ot work he has accomplished
In bis long and active career as a journalist, his
physical condition being as good as that of most
men of half his years, and his mind as bright
and active as ever, Mr. Weyand continues to
take a lively interest In everything that is going
on at home and abroad.
Beaver fills his ideal of a town, and he thinks
it bas a great future before it, not because iis
the home of Mr. Quay, but he bases his opinion
upon the admirable location of the place for
business and residence, the richness of the
surrounding country, the energetic, progressive
character of the people, and the spirit of en
terprise which has lately been developed and
which promises to carry everything before it.
Foggylsm bas been snowed under, and Progress
adopted as the motto of all. classes. Young
and ardent leaders are in control of affairs.
In conversation with The Dispatch repre
sentative yesterday, Mr. Weyand gave an inter
esting account of tbe changes in business con
ditions which have taken place at Beaver in
the last few months. He said: "The town is
literally booming. I don't like the word
'boom.' for. as a general thing, it describes an
abnormal condition, but in this case I can find
no other that so correctly conveys my idea.
Not for GO years has there been so much
activity in everything as can be seen now. A
year ago improvement was at a standstill, and
people said Beaver was ready to be fenced in.
But a marvelous change has occurred since
then, and more particularly within the last six
months. The town bas taken a fresh start, and
what it will lead to and where it will end I am
at a loss to'say, bnt I am confident that it will
not stop nntil Beaver has grown to be one of
the most important towns in the State; per
haps a city rivaling Allegheny in population,
and as renowned for business as it always has
been for comfortable homes and social and
"A large number of handsome bnsiness and
dwelling bouses are going np in the town and
suburbs, some of the latter costing from $50,000
to Sioaooa The streets are being graded and
paved and broad, substantial sidewalks laid, in
terspersed with handsome grass plots. Three
electric roads have been chartered, tbe stock of
which has all been taken, and tho companies
are -only waiting for good weather to begin op
erations. These roads win connect Beaver with
all the surrounding towns, to the great advan
tage of business. One of them will pass through
Groveland, one of the bandomest spots on
earth. It was laid out in lots a short time ago,
and already over 100 of them have been sold to
persons who will build next year.
"Real estate is very active, not only in Beaver
bnt all through the valley, and almost every
body is doing more or less buying. This stimu
lation has been occasioned by the possibility of
the ship canal coming our way, by the certainty
of rapid transit next year, and also by the spirit,
of enterprise which is almost universal, affect
ing people of all classes and conditions. Where
there are no drones everything must be lively.
Properties, which a few months ago were con.
sidered a drug, are rated at almost city prices.
Lots which were then selling at S200 or S300, now
bring S1.000 to $1,500.
"This enhancement has been so sudden and
so great that it almost takes my breath away,
but it is none the less a fact. There must be
something substantial behind such a movement
or it could not take place in such a conserva
tive community as that of Beaver. There Is
nothing wild or visionary abgut it. It is backed
np by an active cash demand: and that there is
little danger of a reaction is shown by the fact
that the bulk of tbe property changing hands
is for improvement, not speculation. Consid
erable Pittsburg capital is being placed in tbe
Beaver valley in various ways, bnt our own
people have plenty of money, and are not de
pendent upon outsiders for means to carry out
any of their projects.
"There are many other things of more or less
interest to your readers to which I might refer,
but 1 think I have said enough to let the public
know that we have not only a live town, but
one destined to increase its importance to an
extent that can hardly now be conceived of.
"Socially, we have onr share of good and bad
people. Our saints are the best and our sinners
the worst in the world. But, taken in the con
crete, vfe have a population which will vie with
any other in morals, intelligence and enter
prise." There bas been something of a change in the
pig iron market during tbe past week, and
prices show an advance. From all reports,bow
ever, it is evident that the volume of trade has
not materially increased m that time. Some
large sales are recorded, but on the whole
transactions have not been particularly heavy.
While consumers of raw iron have no im
mediate pressing needs there appears to be a
disposition to buy for tbe first quarter of next
year, bnt furnacemen do not manifest any
great desire to make contracts at present
Pig iron producers seem to believe that there
is something better in store. They argue that
within the last 60 days the cost of production
has been considerably increased by advances In
ore, fuel and freights, and they are inclined to
hold off. At the same time, purchasers, are
none too ready to push for further supplies,
and while trade is active it cannot be said that
there is any more than a fair amount of busi

Tbe stock market was dnll yesterday, tbe
sales being only 135 shares, of which S3 were
Philadelphia Gas. It was weaker, as were all
the rest of its kind. Wheeling showing the
Tbe only material change In the tractions
was a fractional advance in Pittsburg. Pleas
ant Valley Railway continued its upward
movement, and Electric was slightly firmer.
People's Pipeage improved a little In the after
noon, bnt Pennsylvania Gas Company lost
ground. The rest of the list was featureless as
well as dull. Jlu
There was nothing new in the conditions to
affect values one way or another, and the
weakness, where It developed, was due en
tirely to a lack of orders. Business in detail

IN GOOD CONDITION.
FInnnclnl Matter In Plttsbnrg Could Hardly
be Changed for the Better.
Yesterday's business, with that coming over
from tbe holiday, enabled Manager Chaplin,
of the Clearing House, to make a splendid re
port The exchanges were S3,015,442 49 and the
balances 355,382 4L It would be more gratify
ing if the balances were larger, but as the fig
ures represent business originating in Pitts
burg exclusively, the disproportion is not so
important as it appears npon the surface. The
demand for loans was fair, rates firm at 637,
and checking and depositing heavy.
As to the supply of funds a leading financier
remarked: "As time passes it becomes more
and more evident that there will be no strin
gency here. Pittsburg is getting in more
money than she pays out Regular customers
of the banks have and will have no trouble in
getting all the funds they want and good out
side paper finds ready acceptance, although in
most cases the shave is a little heavier. Finan
cial matters, speaking from a local standpoint,
could hardly be in a better condition."

EVENTS IN OIL.
A Local Operator Smnhe the Market and
Tben Bnlls It Up.
There were two or three interesting features
in tbe oil market yesterday. Harry Smith
smashed it in the forenoon, but changed bis
tactics later on and bulled it np a cent and a
half. Refined was higher at London, but no at
tention was paid to the advance. Field news
was rather beai ish, but not enough to affect
The market opened at SL04, highest 1 1 0;
lowest SI 04 closing SI 05. The fluctuations
were wide and frequent enough for profitable
scalping, and considerable ofit was done, but
transactions in tbe aggregate were not Suffi
cient to attract attention. There was consider
able excitement at times, particularly when
Ml. Smith was getting in his work.
A broker talked in this wise: "I confess I
know very little about the market The Stan
dard is absolute master of the situation. It
can work at both ends, regulate prices of crude
and refined at tbe same time, and enlarge its
margins each way. We are mere puppets In
its hands. When it takes snuff we sneeze, and
I don't see how we can help ourselves."

ST. MAST'S, PLEASANTS COUNTY, W. VA,
November 29. Tbe development of the Eureka
field brings oil nearer and nearer to this place.
'The Duncan Oil Company's well on the Smith
farm, at Belmont station, about five miles
below here, made a susprising flow at 1 o'clock
yesterday afternoon." At 300 feet things began
to break loose, and she threw oil over tbe
derrick. The oil is of a heavy grade, belleved
tobe heavier than any yet found In this field.
At this depth nothing was expected. Efforts
are being made to keep the thing quiet The
well is about 500 feet south of Brother Island
No. 1, on which James Story has contracted to
sink a well for Wheeling parties, who bold
also Brother Island No. 2,
The premium on shallow well oil has been in
creased to 30 cents a barrel above market
quotations. If the Duncan well Is what it Is
thought to be, its product is worth S3 a barrel.
Nothing can be predicted of it for nothing la

Shares Chicago Gas
New Yokk. November 29. The stock mar
ket was active and weak to-day in all its de
partments and material losses from Wednes
day's figures resulted, though the afternoon
saw a somewhat better condition of affairs
than the early portion of tbe day. The full
effects of the Lynn fire and the sensation in
Chicago Gas Trust were not fully over and
the market was subjected this morning to the
influence of another disastrous fire in Boston,
and every one came down with the expectation
of seeing materially lower figures. In which no
one was disappointed. As was natural there
was considerable pressure to sell from timid
holder of stocks, but the majority of tho sell
ing was evidently for the short account The
bears expected that the heavy losses by the In
surance companies would compel the selling
of numerous securities, especially those in
which Boston is most interested and the result
was seen in the special pressure put upon such
stocks as Atchison, New England. Burlington,
Union Pacific, Denver, Texas and Ft Worth
and some of the specialties, bnt the impression
made especially in the first few was insignifi
cant The chief interest was still in Chicago Gas.
and that stock furnished a large proportion of
the declines np to noon. Chicago houses were
again liberal sellers of the stock, and although
rumors of inside buying were circulated, the
stock yielded almost as easily as on
Wednesday. There was no rally of
importance except after tbe first drop
in the- forenoon. The influence of thU
weakness was felt seriously by Consolidated
Gas, whose position is almost Identical with
that of Chicago Gas, and on light dealings that
stock ran off nearly 3 per cent Tbe bears re
newed tbe attack npon Missouri Pacific and
forced it off more than the average of the regu
lar list in which stop orders played a very im
portant part Sugar sold off with the others,
but the other trusts were comparatively well
held. After the first decline of tbe forenoon a
rallying tendency appeared and word was re
ceived from Boston that tbe estimates of the
damage were not only largely exaggerated bnt
that most of the risks were placed with foreign
corporations and some -covering resulting the
bears were driven to other expedients to keep
the advantage they tben held.
The money scare was revived, and was aided
by the near approacb of the first of tbe month
with its disbursements, and by the fact tbat the
day was Friday when there is usually a scarcity
of money to loan because of the rulemaking all
loans rnn until Monday. The rumor of the
withdrawal of tbe public deposits from tbe
national banks was again made to do duty in
this connection, and money which had ruled
easy on call at about tbe legal rate all the fore
noon was bid np to 15 per cect before tbe close,
precipitating another selling movement among
tbe weaker holders and causing the loss ot all
the Improvement from the lowest prices which
had come after the reaction of the pressure of
tbe forenoon. Chicago Gas dropped still
further and many.of the stocks in the regular
list reached lower figures than they bad seen in
the morning. Tennessee Coal and San Fran
cisco preferred, however, which had each.
oroKenover percent hem steaay ana tne
former even made some improvement Many
of the specialties were hard hit however, and
Denver, Texas and Ft Worth, Milwaukee,
Lake Shore and Western, Cleveland, Colum
bus, Cincinnati and St. Louis and Wisconsin
Central declined materially. Western Union
also yielded rapidly In tbe last hour, being
found particularly vulnerable.
Tbe market finally closed with a moderate
volume of business and weak at about the low
est prices of tbe day. The list of declines is a
long one, not one of the active list showing an
advance. Chicago Gas lost 7 San Francisco
preferred Vi, Sugar Tennessee Coal 2.
Wisconsin Central, Western Union and Onta
rio and Western lji" eacb. Consolidated Gas
and Transcontinental IK each, Rock Island,
Lackawanna, Missouri Pacific, New England
and Northern Pacific preferred 1 each. St
Panl, Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and St
Louis, Denver, Texas and FtWorth and Union
Pacific 1 each, Burlington 1 and Wheeling
and Lake Erie preferred L
Railroad bonds were quiet and without ranch
feature, though the majority of tbe important
changes this evening are declines, which, how
ever, are confined almost exclusively to the in
active Issues. Tbe strong feature was the Kan
sas and Texas issues, though their advances
were moderate. Tbe business done aggregated
81,419.000, of which the Kansas and Texas 6s
furnished So06,00a Shenandoah Valley lstt
receipts rose2 to 107, and the 2ds receipts 2 to

To-day's weather bas been more favorable to
brisk trade than anything furnished in this
line for the month. Crisp, wintry weather sel
dom fails to boost produce trade, especially
after a few weeks of such soft weather as we
have had. J3ut consumers appear to be resting
from their high Thanksgiving doings, and com
mission men report a quiet Friday. Left-over
poultry and game are a drug, and holders are
anxious to realize on their stock before another
soft spell comes. Good turkeys are well cleaned
up. Those now offered are the dregs. Good
stock would still find ready sale. Egzs are
higher in the West and very firm here. Fresh
country eggs are active at 30o in a Jobbing way.
