Lard Weaker. '
Chicago Wheat There was no special
feature In the market to-day. Trade was good
early and some large sales were made, but after
that a quiet, steady feeling developed and
lasted pretty much all through the session. It
was rumored that the Northwest had bought
considerable wheat again to-day, and shorts
were generally disposed to cover, the market
closing rather steady. The opening was about
&c lower lor May. and after numerous
small fluctuations became easier, declining o
and closed about Jc lower than Saturday.
Very little outside news was received, and the
risible snpply was about the only Influence hav
ing any bearing on the market There was an
increase of 1,707,000 bushels. The increases
were chiefly at Baltimore, Buffalo, Chicago,
Detroit, Dulntb, -Minneapolis and at St. Louis.
Nolarce decreases occurred excepting on the
lakes, canals and afloat at New York. Cable
advices did not note any special changes.
Corn There was very little of interest to note
in the market, which was quite dull the whole
session. Trading was light and limited to local
operators. The feeling prevailing was com
paratively firm, but no advance of consequence
was established. The speculative market
opened at Saturday's closing price, was quiet,
fluctuating with H&io range, and final quota
tions were a shade better than Saturday.
Oats were slow, oaprators being disposed to
let the market alone.
Mess Pork Rather a light business was re
ported, and the feeling was easy. Prices re
ceded 2K5c, closing rather quiet.
Lard An easier feeling was manifested.
Prices ruled about 2c lower, and the market
closed rather tame.
Short Rib Sides Tradine was rather licht
and the feeling was easier. Prices rnled2KS5c
lower, and the market closed tame.

Joseph Sf Brown Denies Baying the
THEY WILL BOON BE SUBDIVIDED.
A Good Authority Says the Tennsylvania
Railroad is Going Slow.
AN INTERNATIONAL BANKING SCHEME
The report that Joseph S. Brown, of Alle
gheny, and formerly or the Wayne Iron
Works, was the purchaser of the Schmertz
and Beyxner properties on Fifth avenue,
corner of Craig and Neville Btreets, is ve
hemently denied by that gentleman. He
said to' The Dispatch representative
yesterday: "I did not purchase the proper
ties in question, nor have I ever had anything
to do with them in any way. I do not even
know who the purchasers are." This is con
clusive, so far as Mr. Brown is concerned.
It was learned incidentally, from a gentleman
who has ascertained tbo intentions ot the pur
chasers, that the ground, comprising a full
square, will be subdivided into small lots suit
able for .business purposes and put on the mar
ket next spring. The buildings will probably
be allowed to stand.
A gentleman who is In a position to know a
good deal of what the Pennsylvania Railroad
people are doing in the way of accumulating
real estate, said yesterday: "The reports that
the Pennsylvania Railroad is buying property
on Sixth and Fifth avenues are entirely untrue.
The road is not now. nor has it been, doing
this. It may have acquired some ground on
Cherry alley to give it an outlet to Seventh
avenue, but I am disposed to doubt it As to
the other transactions so frequently referred to
ef late, I can say positively that they exist only
in imagination, and the railroad authorities are
in no way responsible for their circulation."
A stock specialist, T. W. PearsalL says:
"Speculation is very narrow yet, and I do not
think that the big bull movement which we
may see next year has started. For the time
being, I think discretion will be the better pol
icy to pursue, and the proSts, wherever made,
should be taken. The market fs always here,
consequently a little caution in operations may
prove to be a veiy wise move. ITor a long pull
I am a bull; everything warrants the taking of
such a position. The vast and general improve
ment In all mercantile and manufacturing in
dustries is sufficient to make a man look hope
fully on the future. From a speculative point
of view, however, the market for the time be
ing Is simply a traders' one, and in my judg
ment the man who is satisfied lor the moment
with a point or two turn, on either side, will
be the one who will accumulate the largest
It is reported on good authority that there
will be an advance in coal rates ordered be
tween this and Christmas. If possible the
agents will meet this week, and will then de
cide to mark up the schedule prices on all
sues and grades of anthracite.
The Financial Chronicle indorses Secretary
Windom's stand on the silver question. It
says: "His method of treating the snbjectis
certainly admirable. He states that the con
tinned coinage of the silver dollar is the only
disturbing element In the otherwise excellent
financial condition of the country, and a posi
tive hindrance to any international bimetallic
agreement; that the amonnt of these dollars
which can perform any useful function as a
circnlatinc medium must soon be reached, and
that then the further coinage and storage ot
them will become a waste of public money and
a burden upon the Treasury."
The Chronicle concludes: "Mr. "Windom's
plan possesses many attractive features. It
would stop the present coinage. It would give
ua a dollar which was worth a dollar. It would
make the Government pay for any loss in the
certificates issued instead of making the Indi
vidual bear the loss. These ire all considera
tions of decided merit and forcible arguments
in favor of the measure."

A Broker Says Oil Dealers Are Eating Each
The oil market yesterday was jnst abont
steady at both ends but weak in the middle.
The lowest point reached was $1 03, at which
Pittsburg and Bradford did considerable buy
ing. This support steadied the market and
caused a fractional improvement The open
ing was $1 OIK, highest $1 01; lowest, $1.03;
closinc, $1 04J& There was no pronounced feel
ing to indicate the course of events, and no im
portant news to affect conditions. Saturday's
clearings were 1.106,000 barrels.
In the words of a nroker: "Everybody is
afraid, as the Standard Is known to have its
fingers In the pie. Lima oil is a mystery.
There is no inducement to the bulls, as there
are no buyers. The best they can do is to twist
the shorts whenever they get a chance. Wire
men make and unmake the market They form
little pools, run up prices and then unload the
stuff on the boys. If this goes on much longer
there will be no more left of us than there was
of the Kilkenny cats."

New York, December 9. The stock market
was comparatively dull to-day in both the
listed and unlisted stocks, while there was no
special animation outside of the coalers and

morning were rather irregular. This, with the
influence of the bank statement of Saturday

While pastor of the Canton Church,
New Jersey, some years ago, I temporarily
lost my voice, and was in consequence un
able to preach for nearly a year. Last spring
I began to have all the symptoms of losing
it again, I labored with great difficulty,
fearing each time I preached would be the
last In July I commenced using Dr.
Jayne's Expectorant, at the same time rub
bing my throat and chest freely with the
liniment I gargled my throat daily ac
cording to the directions given in Dr. Jayne's
Almanac, at the same time taking the ex
pectorant regularly. Peeling very much
better, I discontinued the use of the gargle
and the liniment, bat still kept on with the
expectorant This winter I hare been more
exposed, and preach oftener than for many
years past, and yet my voice seems to be
growing stronger, and were it not for the re
quirements of my calling, I firmly believe
permanent enre would be effected by the ex
pectorant At all events the good it has
done, and is doing me, makes me anxions to
recommend it to all who are suffering from
throat or lung complaints. Rev. W. Pike,

opinion of jobbers that prices will go to 75c per

also looking up, and higher prices will nodonbt
be realized all along the fruit and vegetable
lines at an early day. A cold snap would at
