Market basket filling has undergone few
changes since last Saturday. At the Dia

for the past week in fruit and vegetable
Home raised cucumbers, onions and
mushrooms are to be had, but prices will
make a serious impression upon the ordi
Florida oranges are now in good supply
and quality shows a decided improvement
on receipts of a week or two ago.
Since Thanksgiving times there has been
a lull in Doultry demand and prices are a
shade lower. The Christmas turkey, however,
promises to be more expensive than that for
Thanksgiving, as nearby crop is scarcer than
it has been for many years.
Eck Mill In Great Demand.
, Fresh laid eggs are unusually scarce, and a
'jure shot article in this line brings the outside
quotations. Game is abundant and cheap.
Quail and rabbits are not often as low as they
have been in the past week or two. The
farmers nave sold as low as 75 cents per dozen,
ana at this figure are cheaper than beef. Game
has been selling lower at Pittsburg the past
week than at Chicago or St Louis. Our soft
weather has had a depressing influence on came
As to ocean fruits demand is equal to supply.
The catch of fresh fish is near its end for this
season, and the time for the frozen article is at
hand. The oyster crop is reported below aver
age and Baltimore dealers hold their stock
very Ann. Large quantities are coinc to Eu
rope, and our dealers here report that choice
stock brings no better prices at Pittsburg than
The Boom In Flowers.
In floral lines prices have taken a sharp turn
upward the past week, as our quotations will
disclose. The upward drift is expected to con
tinue until Christmas and afterfrom all former
experiences. Society events are making heavy
demands on flowers, and, notwithstanding ad
vance in prices the coods'&re going out so freely
that the capacity of florists to deliver goods is
fully tested. The supply on Christmas week
has not for many years been up to demand.

Chicago. Wheat Operators thought they
discerned a rather steadier undertone to the
market to-day. Trading was only of a moder
ate character, but some of the parties credited
with selling yesterday were reported as having
bought to-day. The market was looked upon
as a short one, and a very fair demand existed
to cover, and a few moderate sized lines were
bought in. There was nothing particularly
new in the situation, the principal reason for
this action on the part of the shorts was claimed
to be that the market did not decline as easily
as some operators had expected. Another
view of the market as expressed by an operator
was that the selling the past few days which
was supposed to have been mainly long wheat
was evidently short wheat and operators were
trying to get this back.
There was nothing special in the outside
news to have created the .strength to-day.
Private cables quoted spot wheat as opening
weaker and Mark Lane was quoted firm.
Private advices generally quoted markets on
the other side as quiet and firm. The board
dispatch quoted iic decline, a he receipts in
the Northwest are still on a liberal scale. The
movement has rather exceeded the expecta
tions of operators, who had generally looked
for a material falling off.
Corn A moderate business was transacted
within a narrow range. The feeling early was
rather easy, but as the session advanced a bet
ter tone was developed, though values
showed no material advance., except Decem
ber, which was stronger, closing at the outside.
The market opened at yesterday's closing
prices, was easy for a time, selling off HQiic,
became firmer, advancing KQXc. ruled steady
and closed Jic better than yesterday. It is
understood that there has been considerable
buying of December ic a quiet way the past
few days, supposed to be for Eastern account.
Oats were quieter and rather steady. A
moderate number of buying orders were re
ceived from New York. A prominent local
operator was also a buyer. On any advance,
however, the latter sold freely. His trading
held the market
Pork There was rather more doing and a
stronger feeling was developed. Prices ruled
610c higher, and the advance was fairly well
Lard The market was stronger, and prices
ruled about 5c higher. '

feeling was stronger. Offerings were insuffi

A Slight Lull in the Pittsburg Lum
ber Trade Preparatory to
A GEAHD SPURT BEIT SPRING.
Confidence in Natural Gas Shown by Many
New Companies Organizing.
IKDUSTB1AL ACTlTITI IN THE SOUTH
The local lumber trade seems to be firmly
established on a winter basil and is likely
to remain in a comatose condition until
after the holidays, or toward spring. The
bad condition of the country roads has also
served to lessen the demand. Dealers are
making no effort to push bnsiness this win
ter, but are looking ahead to next year
when a great building boom is confidently
expected. Hence stocks have been per
mitted to rnn down, and there is no dis
position to replenish .them at once. Prices are
nnchanged, but rather weak.
The season's business has been the heaviest
in the history of the lumber trade in Pittsburg,
amounting to between 5,000.000 and 6,000,000.
Lastyear It was about 4,000,000. This city is
rapidly becoming one of the great lumber
marts of the country.
The Beaver Falls, College and Metamora
Street Railway Company, of Beaver Falls, has
made a contract with the Thomson-Houston
Company for the equipment of their new elec
tric road, which will be about four miles long.
Mr. J. C. Whitla is President of the company.
The line will probably be in operation by next
Judging from the large nnmber of natural
gas companies that are being organized in
different parts .of the country, fears that the
supply will soon give out are not very wide
spread. The Princeton Gas and Mining Com
pany has been incorporated at Princeton, Ky.,
to develop gas, oil and mineral lands; capital
stock, 1.000,000; Hydrogen Fuel Gas Company,
Chicago, to manufacture devices for making
hydrogen gas for fuel; capital, 100,000; Milton
Weston is one of the incorporators; Indiana
Natural Gas and Oil Company, Chicago, capi
tal, 2,000,000; the object is to pipe natural gas
from Indiana to Chicago; Helena Gas, Water
and Power Company, Helena, Ark.; capital,
$10,000; to sink wells for oil, gas or water.
The Commoner and Qlatrworker states that
the representatives of a corporative concern
from Pittsburg, who were at Marion, Ind., a
few i days ago, were well pleased with the
Kiley-Corbett syndicate site, west of town.
Free land and gas are offered, and the Pitts
burg people have signified their intention to
accept. If the deal goes through the company
will put up two fire-proof buildings. The line
of goods to be manufactured will be bottles.
There is great activity In the organization of
enterprises in the South. Florence, Ala is in
the lead, with investments by Philadelphia
and New England capitalists, including a
$500,000 cotton mill, a furnace to cost 200,000, to
be built by Philadelphia men, and to be known
as the Philadelphia Furnace, and a 300,000 loan
and banking company; while 1,000,000 in cash
has been invested in the stock and land of the
local improvement companies in Florence by
the sam e capitalists. In Florida a contract has
been made for constructing a 300-mile canal, to
furnish a water-way nearly the entire length of
the State. At Bessemer, Ala., two new fur
naces, to cost 400,000, are to be built. At
Brierueld, Ala-, iron works are to be re-organized,
with 500.000 of bonds and 700.000 of pre
ferred stock. At Rome, Ga., a 125,000 furnace
is to be built. A steel-plate mill is to be built
in Wesf Virginia, a 200,000 clothing factory in
Baltimore, and extensive fertilizer works in
The utmost activity prevails in the mining
regions through Mercer and adjoining counties
in West Virginia, and more men are employed
than ever before. The total production of
coal In this basin is about 100,000 tons per
month, of which amount the Turkey Gap
mines get about 25,000 tons. About 1,000 coke
ovens are In operation and 200 more are build
ing, 100 of the number being erected by the
Powh&ttan Company. These latter will be
fired in about a week.
The organization of the North Carolina Steel
and Iron Company, at Salisbury, is announced.
It is said that the new company has a capital of
1,000,000, and will build a Bessemer iron fur
nace of 150 tons daily capacity at Greensboro,
to be followed by the first Bessemer steel rail
mill in the South, a rolling mill, etc Among
the incorporators of the company are George
8. Scott, of New York, President of the Rich
mond and Danville Railroad; Julius A. Gray,
President of the Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley
Railroad Company: A. B. Andrews. President
of the Western North Carolina Railroad, and
James B. Pace, President of the Planters' Na
tional Bank. Richmond, Va.
The following mechanical patents have ex
pired and maybe appropriated by anyone so
disposed: Manufacture of flexible gas tubing,
G. L. Burnham: kiln for making artificial stone.
D.M.Sprogle; lathe, H.K.Nickerson; machine
for cutting nail plates. T. Searls; treating pe

The Southern Lumberman rises to inquire:
''Why don't somebody establish a chair factory
in the hard-wood region of the South and make
chairs that will do to sit In 7 A large amount of
the lumber used in chair making is shipped
from the South and the finished chairs shipped
back. The freight both ways Is a large item of
cost and'tho chairs sold by the retail furniture
stores are, to say the least, not very durable."
Prof. D. Mendeleeff, m a communication
from St. Petersburg to Ludwig Mond, Esq.,
past President of the Society of Chemical In
dustry, refutes the statement! that the natural
supply of crude oil In Baku is coming to an
end, and that consequently a lapse In the pro
duction of Russian naphtha was to be expected.
He states that these rumors are not at all new,
as four years ago, even in Bakn itself, they

bushels of coal. Nine-tenths of this was shipped

tenth, or 12,000,000 bushels, represents the

An Upward Movement Sliowlns the Stock
Has Some Friend.
A sharp advance in Philadelphia Gas was the
feature of the stock market yesterday. Just
what was behind the turn could not be discov

tion of large holders to sustain the property.
Others laid it to! an increase of orders. At all
events, the improvement shows a degree ot
confidence in it which was not thonghtto exist

BUSINESS MEN BATTLED.
The Clearing House Baslneis Cat Down
Through Their Neglect.
Business of the Clearing House showed a
decrease yesterday of about 400,000, as com

for by the Monongabeia House fire and rainy

such an extent that they forgot, or neglected,
to make their customary deposits. One bank
which usually turns in 50.000 or $60,000 bad
only 3,000. General business was as active as
There was the usual good demand for money
at the regular rates, and continued scarcity of
currency. Considerable coin was used in set

The oil market opened weak and closed
strong yesterday. The first quotation was 10
highest, 104; lowest, 102; dosing, 104. New
York and Oil City were sellers. Pittsburg was
the best buyer, and scooped the crowd. It
was the best bnsiness day for a long time that
is, there was less peddling and realizing on
fractions. The feeling at the finish was favor
able to a further rally to-day. There was no
important outside news. Friday's clearances
were 1,504,000 barrels.
A prominent operator says of the Eureka,
W. Va., district: "The district has been great

and its future. The defined field covers an
area of about four acres, and is a very treach
erous territory. Moore & Bamesdale's Big
John well, which Is located on the Hammat
farm. Is now making ISO barrels per day and is
situated between two dty holes 2,000 feet apart.
The total production of the field from 12 wells
amounts to about 400 barrels. The operators
are working on an east and west line, and how
it will result remains to be seen. Considerable
land is being leased or rather tied up at small
"On the Ohio side of -the river, considerable
land is being leased in tne northwest, and this
field has a nice production from the shallow
sand, which is found at 500 to 700 feet. The
producers are now receiving a premium of 30
cents, and the Western and-Atlantic Pipe Line
will reach the territory about the 1st of JanV
A dispatch from Washington. Fa., says: The
strike that the Washington field has been ex
pecting for the past six months was made last
evening in the Brown-Agnew well, which is
situated south of. present developments, and
opens up the Northern field. It is considered
one of the most important in this locality and
will Induce an enormous amount of drilling.

k BULLISH SENTIMENT
Developed In the Share Market a a Keislt
of Easier Money Advances All
Along the Line, With
No Declines. '
New Yoek. December 6. The stock market
was both more active and decidedly stronger
than on any other day for sometime, and the
strength attained to the condition of buoyancy
toward the close of the day. The upward
movement met with' no material setback,
though the progress made was comparatively
slow in the forenoon, and while some stocks
advanced rapidly and suddenly, the general
list steadily appreciated without any sensa
tional movements. The heavy bond purchases
or the past few days and the perceptible easing
up of money at this center did much to en
gender a bullish sentiment, and this morning
the temper was very pronounced in favor of an
The foreigners were liberal buyers again
after sending higher figures from London, and
the nnmber of new ouyers-in the market fright
ened the shorts into covering on an extended
scale, and the last named influence was very
marked. Dividends upon the Cleveland, Co
lumbus, Cincinnati and St. Louis stocks and
Sugar Trust aided Jn pvlng an impetus to the
advance, but the baying of operators so recent
ly prominent upon the bear side was specially
influential among the trading element and they
were all working on the bull side to-day. Even
the Coal stocks showed marked strength, but
Missouri Pacific, Union Paciflc. and New
England led in the general list. New England
was apparently advanced by the same party
who so recently have been engaged in depress
ing the stock and the buyingin Missouri Paciflc
was said to fie for inside account.
There was a large demand for Sugar in the
loan crowd, and the short interest in the stock
1 as large as in any other stock traded in.
Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and St Louis
after opening up over 1 percent shot up Vyi fur
ther, but failed to move after that until the
afternoon, when it retired, losing all but the
opening gains. In the last hour Lackawanna
and New England were leaders, and the former
crossed 140 again. The market finally closed
active and strong at the best prices of the day.
Almost everything on the active list made im
portant gains, and there were no declines what
ever. Railroad bonds also felt the stimulus of the
change jn the temper of the speculation and
kept pace with stocks in the increase in activ
ity as well as strength. The sales of all issues
were 1.982,000, of which the Gulf. Colorado and
Santa Fe firsts contributed $256,000. The tone
was strong throughout, and the declines this
evening are few in number. Reading seconds
rose 2U to 57 ihe thirds 2 to 48, and Shenan
doah Valley firsts 2 to 112.
The J?osVt review says: The stock market
was stronger again this forenoon, and though it
is still almost entirely what Is called, "A board
room traders' market" a good many of the
daily speculators were apparently disposed to
anticipate the advance which everybody con
ceded is likely to come in January. The ad
vance, however, was largely due to the cover
ing of shorts, and to that extent is a temporary
cause. The bears had hammered the market
all the first four days of this week. On Mon
day they were successful in uncovering stop
orders and bringing out a good deal of long
stock, but since then the market has shown
more resistance every day. But aside from the
spurt of prices caused by the covering of
shorts, there is a more substantial advancing
Under the present circumstances of large
railroad earnings and tbe abundance of money
in Europe seeking investment in the United
States, It would be strange If prices of securi
ties did not advance sooner or later. Unless
there is some manipulation of the local money
market there can scarcely be any 'cause for
higher rates than the present any time for the
next four months, and as for railroad earnings,
they were as good for November as tbe most
sanguine speculators could reasonably have
hoped for. Up to noon to-day80roads reported
their gross earnings for the month of Novem
ber aggregating 15,188.264, against 13,616,163 in
uses, an increase oi u a-iu per cent.
