DiscoTering That This is to 1 One of the
Great Centers.
office of Pittsburg Dispatch, l
Ttjesdat. Decembers. 1889, J
It goes without saying that Pittsburg's
Exposition lias been a success. 'Every
doubting Thomas has "seen and believed."
In variety and excellence of exhibit and
financial results there has been no industrial
display in any city of the land which has
excelled, or, in the opinion of many who
ought to know, equalled, Pittsburg's Expo
sition. It has brought many dollars to your
merchants and manufacturers, has very
much enlarged our city's constituency in
trade lines, and has advertised Pittsburg
ana her industries through the commercial
world as no enterprise ever did before.
Daily visits to our tradesmen and manu
facturers during the progress ot the Exposi
tion snd since, reveal the fact that it has
done excellent service in bringing customers
to our doors, and furnishing to the outside
world valuable information concerning the
resources autLAijtacity of the city in indus
trial lines.
Terr Clearly Illustrated.
An illustration or two will suggest how
the Exposition has benefited. A gentleman,
who had for some time been working on a
patent, visited the Exposition, and, to his
surprise, found an invention on exhibition
that had the same object in view. The one
on exhibition suggested to him valuable
improvements, and he has been able to
make such additions to his own invention as
give assurance of success. His improved
machine has already been patented, and in
a very short time will be on the market.
The Exposition was the school in which he
learned the defects of his machine and dis
covered a more excellent way.
One of our leading dealers in the line of
filters said recently that the Exposition had
been a great stimulus to his trade, as it
brought him a number of customers from
Jarteyond Pittsburg's natural territory.
gA trade," eaid he, "has been opened up
nn'bur line of goods with many who had
heretofore so knowledge of our wares, and
would still be in darkness but for the light
poured upon them by the Exposition."
Reaching Broader Field.
Said a leading jobber of carriage hard
ware: "Our trade lines have been very
much extended as a result of the Exposition.
New customers from beyond our natural
territory have come in, attracted by the ex
hibit of our industries, and we have secured
valuable trade which hitherto has gone to
other cities."
Similar testimony comes from scores pf
our trades people. The Exposition has been
a mighty educating influence. The outside
world knows more of Pittsburg's resources
in commercial and manufacturing lines than
it did before.
Visitors to the Exposition could learn
more in a day of our industrial resources
than they could learn in a month by going
through our great manufacturing establish
ments. Our products were brought to a
common center where in a few hours could
be seen the fruits of great industrial devel
opment. In the Book it is stated that the Queen of
of Sheba, hearing ot the wonderful king
dom of Solomon, went to Jersaleum to see
tfor berSelC Whfin shR RAW thn i-lnrinim rttv
land the evidences of power and glory, she said:
"The half had not been told." So multitudes
of those who visited our Exposition went away
with similar expressions on their lips concern-IngPittsbnre-
and her resources. Thevhad
not-erjassa orour city's capacity in industrial
uiw uuui uiey came ana saw.
Advertising Actually Purs.
The prime need of Pittsburg to-day is to as
sert herself. She has in the past been entirely
too conservative, too modest in pushing her
claims as a great center of manufacture and
There are now few cities west of theAlle
ghenies that surpass us in population, and
fewer in commercial power. In the past decade
Cleveland and Cincinnati have been distanced,
and in the next St. Louis may be in the rear.
It needs no prophet's pen;to see that, when the
twentieth century dawns, the three great cities
of the American continent will be New York,
Pittsburg and Chicago; and, if there be the
right spirit of enterprise among oar business
men, there is no need that Pittsburg shall hare
the third place. If we had blown our horn as
Chicago has done, Pittsburg to-day might be
the second city of the American continent
The Scotch-Irish element which is the con
trolling element of this city, and has been from
its origin, is little given to advertising. We
quietly wait for customers to come to us, instead
ui guiug iu wub turners.
He Told the Troth.
Aleadmgmanufacturersaldrecently: "JVTiat
Pittsburg needs is to accept the injunction of
rtbe Master, Uo out into the highways and
.hedges, and compel the people to come in.' We
have been" so confident of our resources and
ability that we have folded our arms and waited
for trade to come to us, Instead of going out
after trade as other great commercial centers
have done."
The Exposition is a move in the direction of
lifting our old, staid and too conservative city
out of the old ruts in which it has been moving,
the flrst century of its career. It is hoped that
this is but the beginning of a new era in our
history, and that we are to see still more glorious
results in the future development of this project
which is yet in its infancy.
It has already dawned upon the minds of the
American people that this is the greats ron and
steel center of the continent. The location of
Pittsburg eminently fits her to become a great
commercial as well as manufacturing center.
Very few of our citizens appear to appreciate
our advantages and opportunities. Untold
wealth lies beneath; vast populations are
springing up on our borders, ana It only re
mains that our peoyle seize their opportunities
to make Pittsburg one of the great cities of
the continent.
We have already seen some of the good re
sults of the exposition In bringing our city into
notice. Learning what can be done in this di
rection, it now remains to make onr future
exhibits a still greater success. The way has
been opened. J. H. Youmg.
The Pennsylvania Company Sinking Im
provements on the Ashtabula Line.
"William Mullins, purchasing agent of the
Pennsylvania Company, and a member of
the Executive Committee of the Pittsburg,
Youngstown and Ashtabula Bailroad, is
advertising for proposals for the grading of
six miles of road from 'Wampum Junction
to Xawrence Junction. The company now
run trains between these points over the
tracks of the Beaver Valley road, which
theyhave leased. The new line will practi
cally be a double track of that road. Jhe
freight business has grown to such enormous
proportions over the Ashtabula line that it
is found necessary to build another track to
handle it The. work will be finished by
spring, when the rails will be put down.
Kicked In a Door.
John Leonard was arrested yesterday for
acting in a' very disorderly manner at the"
house of Mr. Divine, on Taylor street,
BJoomfield. Leonard went to Divine's
house and kicked his door with such 'vio
lence that he smashed it from its hinges.
Divine called the police, who had the man
promptly removed to the station house.
He wseent to the workhouse for 30 days.
v ' TJitrt While Wrestling.
'Charles Wayne, an 18-year-old employe
at S. S.' Marvin & Co.'s, was seriously in
jured about the body yesterday during the
noon hour while wrestling with one of his
fellow-workers. He was thought to have
been Injured internally, but an examina
tion at tbe Homeopathic Hospital showed
otherwise, and lie was removed to his home,
i it eostcr avenue.

Chicago, Decembers. Wheat There was a
very fair demand to-day and a stronger feeling
existed, with prices showing an advance all
round, and chiefly in December, orcash wheat.
December, which was yesterday 65
under May, was bid up to-day to within 4Jo of
May price. The reason for this was a sharp de
mand from carriers and elevator men. Trad

selling May. The market opened io higher,
and prices for December advanced Jc, while
May advanced Jc, receded slightly, and the
closing was c higher for December and c

Cables were again of an encouraging tenor.
India shipments last week show a large in
crease, being reported at 90,000 bushels, an
increase of 62,000 over the previous week.
The export clearances were larger than for
some days past, equal to 205,717 bushels of
wheat. Receipts at Minneapolis and Dulnth

last week, showing quite a respectable falling

were also quite strong. Minneapolis reported
a good demand for cash wheat there, and
tbere was a rumor that the aggregate stocks in
country elevators in tbe Northwest was only
about 9,500.900 bushels, while 13,000,000 had
been calculated on.
Com A. moderate business was transacted
early, and the feeling prevailing was quite
strong, bnt later the market became quiet and

largely to the receipts falling short of expecta

Minneapolis The demand on samples
tables for good qualities was active and the

with a few orders filled for outside milling
points. The milling demand kept prices above
the point at which elevator operators could
work, so that very little was taken for elevator
urposes excepting of tbe low grades. The

Business Property on That Thorough
fare Brings Big Money.
The Company to Widen Its Boadbed Be
tween Hazelwood and Langhliri's.
The feature of the local real estate market
yesterday was the sale by Black: & Baird of
a Penn avenue property at a price approxi
mating $80,000. They refused to give the
exact location, but leit it to be inferred that
it is between Sixth and Tenth streets. A
large mercantile house will be erected on
the lot for the purchaser's own use.
He is one of the most prominent bu siness
men of the city, and that he did not buy for
speculation is shown in the fact that he
proposes to improve his purchase and occupy it
Owing to the great increase of freight traffic
on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the com
pany has decided to add 20 feet to the east side
of their track from a little above Hazelwood
station to the Pittsburg Junction road, at
Langhlin's. This addition to their track facil
ities has become imperative by present inter
ference with passenger trains, which bas for
some time been a cause of much complaint
from patrons of the road. The plans for the
improvement are being put into shape, and
work will be commenced at an early date.
This improvement will give the Baltimore
and Ohio ample facilities for the prompt trans
action of all its immense passenger and freight
business, without either interfering with the
other to cause vexatious delays. It will also
stimulate building at Hazelwood, where a num
ber of houses have already been started, and
many others will be next spring. The natural
beauty and advantageous location of this place
are attracting attention to it as one of the most
desirable residence districts around Pittsburg.
The few business failures which have oc
curred in different parts of tbe country within
the past few days possess no particular signifi
cance. Tbe end of the year always brings to
the light many weak spots in business which
had been tided over somehow, and the weak
concerns go to the walL This is an illustration
of the survival of the fittest. These failures,
or the most of them, resulted from mismanage
ment. Some of the concerns that have been
overtaken by disaster attempted to do a $1,000,
000 business on a 100,000 capital. This sort of
commercial slight of band contains the
elements of its own undoing.
The conditions of trade, as reflected in care
fully collected reports from' all sections of tbe
country, are encouraging in the highest degree,
and give rich promise of continued activity
throughout the winter season. There may be a
failure here and there, but business rests upon
too substantial a basis and is too profitable to
warrant anticipations of any serious reverses
where correct methods have been pursued.
Those who succumb will owe their misfortunes
to their own mistakes, and cannot justly attrib
ute them to outside influences. A vessel that
sinks in calm weather shows some inherent de
feet. A man who fails with a good cash de
mand for his goods or products should look to
his methods for an explanation.
It is the opinion of several prominent real
estate brokers in this city that property on side
streets has about reached the limit of its pro
ductive capacity, and that, therefore, any at
tempt to enhance its market value would end
in disappointment.
In illustrating this proposition, one of the
gentlemen referred to said yesterday: "People
live on side streets because they have to and
not because they want to. Houses are gen
erally of an inferior class, and rents are lower
than on the more fashionable thoroughfares.
They are largely occupied by men getting
moderate salaries, say from S800 to SI, 000 a year.
They pay a rental varying from $20 to 25 a
month. This is all they can pay without an in
crease of income, which seldom happens, and
when It does, the tenant at once seeks a more
desirable location; Twenty or $30 a month is,
therefore, the utmost that owners of this class
of property can hope to realize. It nets them
6 or 6 per cent, a very handsome income from
the investment, bnt not large enough to justify
extravagant prices for their property.
"I had a man come to me the other day who
owns a house on a side street in the lower part
of the city. He had been getting S27 a month
for it, but wanted to raise the price to $30. I
asked him what business the tenant was in, and
what his income was. He said he was a clerk
and earned about S900 a year. Do you think. I
asked, that ha can stand an advance of S3 a
month f The owner didn't know, but thought
he could. Well, he cannot, I said, and if you
raise the rent you will drive him out, and your
bouse may remain empty for months, for men
of means will not want it, and those of small
incomes can't afford to pay what you ask. You
had better let him alone, or better still. If he is
a good, careful man, reduce the rent to 25.
This will encourage him, and he will stay with
"The property in question house and lot is
worth about $5,000, and yet, with its productive
capacity limited to 300 or 324 a year, the
owner is asking 10,000 for it. A capitalist
wouldn't even look at it at those figures. This
incident shows that the exalted ideas of some
of our property owners have nothing substan
tial to rest upon. It is not difficult to get a big
pnee for property that is susceptible of de
velopment that will increase its productive
capacity, but it is quite different in the case of
property on side streets and alleys, wbere the
limit in both of these respects has been
reached. A house so located and bringing in
300 a year has a fixed commercial value, and
any attempt to boom it must necessarily fall,
unless it should be wanted for a special pur
pose. For these reasons 1 think prices for the
class of property in question have about
reached the top, and are more likely to decline
than advance

sain the Market.
The oil market was strong but not very
active all day yesterday, except for a short
time after the opening, when Eastern selling
and a drop in refined at London gavo it a
bearish twist The opening was 1 0
highest 1 0,lowest 1 04, closing 1 05& A
fluctuation of c afforded a fine opportunity
for scalping, aid the trading was mostly of
that description.
A broker tailed In this wise: "It Is known
that the monthly pipe line report will be less
bearish than uiuaL This alone should sustain
the market, and will, if let alone, but so long
as it is subject to manipulation no reliable
estimate can be made of tbe probable course
of prices. My pwn opinion is that tbe market
will change very little until after New Year's,
when I shall look for an advance."

To Bailroad Shares and Advances In tho
Majority Pacific Mall Strengthened
by the President's Message
Tbe Coalers Raided.
KewYobk, December 3. The stock market
was less active to-day, especially for the un
listed department, but there was a much better
tone to the dealings throughout tbe greater
portion of the day, and advances are in a de
cioed majority. The features of tbe trading to
day were the continuance of the foreign pur
chases, the heavy covering of shorts in the gen
eral list and trades on Coal stocks and the
Trnsts. the last having the look of a demonstra
tion under cover of which to recoup short
sales. The figures from London this morning
were materially higher than our last night's
closing, and as there were plenty of buying or
ders in the market for both tbe long and abort
accounts, the opening was made at advances
over last evening's prices extending to per
cent in the generrl list, while exceptional gains
were made among tbe specialties, Tennessee
Coal being up 1, Sugar 1 and Jersey Central
2. Their figures were placed too high, however,
and a material reaction occurred in the early
The stocks of the regular list, however, were
well maintained and some marked advances
were reported. Pacific Mail moving up over 1
per cent on tbe rumor that the President's
messace wonld contain a clause in favor of in
creased compensation for carrying the mails.
The Louisville and Nashville, Missouri Pacific
and Atchison were all quite strong, and at noon
the market was fractionally better than the
opening prices. .Tho usual daily raid upon the
Coal stocks was then made, and the demand
from tbe foreigners and tbe shorts having
fallen away, tbere was a material impression
made upon tbeir prices in a very short time.
Tbe raid was accompanied by a rumor that tbe
ioxe suit naa oeen aeciuea against tbe Lehigh
Valley, though no confirmation of thl report
was had.
naa. jjacaawauua auu .neaaing were
ed for sale in large quantities, and the de
cline in the former extended to 3 per cent. Tbe
trusts suffered to a lesser extent, but the losses
In them were material. Another endeavor to
cover the shorts in the last hour resulted in a
marked rally which extended to the entire list.
andSngar refineries was specially prominent
in the rise, reaching the best figures of tbe day.
Missouri Pacific at the time was. rather beavy.
and lost a portion of the early improvement.
The market finally closed only fairly active and
firm to strong at tbe best prices or there abonts.
The preferred stock of the Great Northern
Bailroad was traded in the unllst department
to-day, selling at 39.
Bailroad bonds were a shade more active to
day, the sales of all issnes aggregatine $1,702.
000, though the increase over yesterday was
perceptible in tbe Kansas and Texas lssnes.tbe
6s contributing $274,000 and the 5s 3119,000,
though tbe Manitoba 6s furnished $332,000. Tbe
Kansas and Texas issues were tbe strong fea
ture of the day, tbe 6s rising 1, to 7 and
the 6s a fraction. Milwaukee, Lake Sboreand
Western firsts lost 2, at 121K.

money was being transferred to this uaarket
either for loan or for the purchase of stocks.
These facts, as well as the disposition to cover
shorts made the opening figures itol per
cent higher than last night. There were vari
ous rumors afloat to account for tho sudden
drop in the Coal stocks, but tbe statistics ot tbe
coat tonnage for tbe 64 days from September 30
to November 23 afford a sufficient reason for a
drop In tbe Coal stockd.as they show a decrease
Of 1.250,810 tons for the five leading companies.
The experience of the last week is valuable
In showing what kind of a foundation there is
for tbe range of prices which has prevailed in
the last month. On Tuesday last both bulls
and bears bad become so doubtful that the
total sales up to 12 o'clock that day were only
96,300 shares of listed stocks, and prices were
only irregularly And fractionally changed from
the previous day. Since that time there bas
been an extraordinary snccesslon of events to
depress the stock market. Considering all the
excitement and the panicky feeling which pre
vailed for the greater part of these days, the
decline has been insignificant and shows that
there is strong support to the market that is
not likely to give away now, even if there came
a further decline in tbe Coal stocks as the re
sult of the poor coal trade.
Notwithstanding reports to the contrary, the
negotiations for the transfer of the Denver,
Texas and Fort Worth to the control of the
Union Pacific have terminated successfully,
and the operation of tbe road was transferred
yesterday to the Union Pacific officials. The
new corporation will stand in tbe same rela
tion to tbe Union Pacific as the Utah Northern
and Oregon Short Line. The 600 miles of tbe
Union Pacific Colorado lines have been earn
ing and paying dividends into the treasury of
the Union Pacific, rnditis expected that tbe
new consolidated stock, for which the Denver
and Fort Worth stock and the stocks of the
Union Pacific Colorado lines are to bo ex
changed on eqnal terms, will be on a dividend
paying basis within a year.

Markets are flooded with poultry, especially
chickens, and prices are decidedly off. A Lib

ingness to unload two tons of dressed chickens
at 60 per pound. It is probable that this stock
approaches the border line of good for nothing

The General Master Workman at Work oa
the Proposed Amalgamation.
Philadelphia. December 3. General
Master Workman Powderly arrived In this
city yesterday from Scranton, and left for
St. Loufs to-day, in company with Ealpb.
Beaumont, of New York, and A. W.Wright,
editor of the Journal of the Knightt of
Labor, and a member of the Executive
Board. The object of the trip is to complete
the arrangements for the amalgamation of
the Knights of Labor with the Farmers'
Alliance, whose annual convention met in
St. Louis to-day.
Vice President Gray, of the Farmers'
Alliance, telegraphed to a member of the
Executive Board of tbe Knights of Labor
that the rumor stating that there was strong
objection among the members of the Alli
ance agafnst the Benights, on account of the
statement that there was a large constit
uency of Anarchists and Socialists on.tbe
roll of membership of the Knights, was en
tirely unfounded.
A New Fast Train.
The new Panhandle train, to run from
this city to Washington, Pa., arrived in the
city yesterday, and. will be put on next
Wednesday. It Js made up of a combina
tion car, two day coaches and one chair car.
The cars are entirely new, and the interiors
of them are handsomely fitted up. The
train will leave the Union station at 5:45
city time, and make the run of 40 miles in
56 minutes.
Swift's Specific entirely cured me of a severe
case of blood poison which obstinately resisted
and refused to be enred for over 26 years. The
regular medical remedies of mercury and
potash only added fnel to tbe flame. I suffered
during most of this long time with ulcers,
blotches and sores of tbe most offensive char
acter, and was for a long time practically an
invalid. In less than 30 days use of S. 8. 8. 1
was all cleared up sound and weU. This has
been nearly a year ago, and no sign of any re.
turn of the old enemy.
1 John b. Willis,
87 Clark street, Atanta, Ga
Swift's Spedflc cured me of terrible Tetter,
from which I had suffered for 20 long years. I
have now been entirely well for five years, and
no sign of any return of the disease.
