KDamp Their Low-Grade Cattle Upon
Local Markets, Simply
Low Prices a Terr Natural Consequence of
Sack Tactics.
Office ofPittsbtjko Dispatch.
"H'ednesdat. December 1L ISS8. J
The run of cattle at E.ist Liberty Taried
very little from that of last week. Keceipts
on Monday were 125 carloads, and the total
for the week has been abont 130 loads.
There are no signs of improvement in
quality of receipts. There were no strictly
prime cattle in this week's offerings, and as
for light, tidy butcher stock, such as onr
markets demand, there were not enough to go
round. A leading: stockman said that he could
bare sold much more of the latter grade than
be ii as able to furnish.
The bulk of receipts this week was low grade,
half fatted stock, for which markets haTe been
very slow for some time past.
To Save Winter's Feeding.
It seems that stock raisers are Inclined to
dump their low grade stock on to markets and
save winter's feeding. This disposition is wide
spread enough to bring an excess of low grade,
thin stock to our markets. There Is no longer
any5 demand for stocLers worth mentioning,
and low grade stackers can hardly be given
away. The season is too far advanced for any
demand in this line. There were no buyers of
export cattle on hand at Liberty this week. For
want of buyers about a dozen loads were
shipped East in first hands.
Hisb-Price Bnmon Wrong-.
The highest nrice reached, so far as could be
traced, was S 1 30. There were rumorstof sales
at H 35 and St 40. but no stockman could be
found who sold at a higher rate than SI 3a All
lower grades which comprised the bulk of this
week's receipts were loner than last week, and
were very slow at the decline.
The better grades of cattle offered this week
were mostly from Ohio. The common and
mixed stuff came from the far West, and for
the latter class markets were as poor as they
have been anv time this season. At noon to
day stock was about cleaned up. but low grades
were no doubt shoved off at liberal concessions
on the part of sellers.
Sheep and Lambs.
Receipts were much larger than last week,
but for choice stock markets were firm at the
old rates. Common grades which were in the
majority were very slow, and prices were a
shade lower than last week. Anything choice
held up well to last week's prices, and for a few
bunches of the best better prices were obtained
than could be obtained a week ago. Choice
lambs were not In supply equal to the demand.
Large bnpply of Hogs.
bupply was large, footing up 60 loads on Mon
day, with numerous additions since. Markets
w ere slow at lower prices than last week. -Soft
weather has a depressing influence on the de
mand for bogs and hog products.
Prices at East Liberty arc little above those
at Chicago for some da js past. The outside for
Philadelphia this morning at Liberty was
S3 TO. One of our leading packers reports that
bis advices Irom Chicago to-day were that tips
could be bonght there considerably under $3 00
DlcCnll ot Co.'n Weekly Hevfevr.
The supply of cattle has been liberal and the
quality the worst ever offered on this market.

ly at last week's prices, while the common to
medium grades were very dull at lower prices.

The Eeal Estate Interest Promises to
be LiTely flext Year.
A Businessman Keviews the Fire Depart
ment, Tells What is Seeded and
The condition of the real estate market is
as encouraging as at any previous time in
the history of the city, and the outlook for
next year is particularly rosy. December
usually affords an index to the winter busi
ness. If this holds good there will be
lively times between now and next March,
as dealings so far this month have been
exceptionally large. From now on until
spring, as a general thing, the inquiry is
largely for down-town business property.
After that, more attention is paid to the
suburbs. As to values, if owners do not
become extravagant in their demands, and
there is no particular reason for thinking
they will, they are likely to remain abont
as they are. This will insure ready sale for
nearly all the property that will be on the
market next year.
In regard to the East EndL Mr. F. O. Van
Gorder sends the following to The Dispatch:
Heretofore Hilandavenue has been recognized
as tbe dividing line between the business and
residence portions of Penn avenue on the west
side of East Liberty, but the scarcity of tusi
ness sites east of Hiland avenue has turned tbe
attention of business men and investors to that
portion of Penn avenue lying between Hiland
and Negley avenues, which, without doubt,
will be the center of the town In the near
future. A considerable amount of property in
this vicinity has already changed hands, nota
bly the Negley property, corner of Penn and
Negley avenues, to James C. Dick, and the
character of the buildings now being erected
clearly indicates the place which this thorough
fare will occupy as a business center.
To the Financial Editor of The Dispatch:
The mild criticism of the Pittsburg Fire De
partment by "A Prominent Underwriter," an
interview with whom appeared in The Dis
patch this morning was timely and for the
most part to the point. There is nothing of
more commanding importance than the suc
cessful treatment ot fires. It involves all our
earthly possessions. A weak and temporizing
policy by municipalities, corporations or indi
viduals, with such great interests at stake,
should not be permited. Fires, like war and
pestilence, demand heroic treatment. Mild
measures wonld be like applying a bread and
milk poultice to thebitaof aviporor rattle
snake. s
Pittsburg has a splendid fire department. It
Is brilliant. I have never seen one that made a
finer show on parade. And it does good work,
when on duty. It is admirably managed. I
doubt if there is afire department in the United
States that is conducted with more signal
ability. Its defects are not those of manage
ment. Its shortcomings cannot be laid on the
shoulders of the officers or men. They get out
of it all that it is capable of doing. They
work it to .its full capacity. The ap
paratus is too light. To set one or several
of our little engines against a great fire is like
trying to stop a hurricane with a handkerchief.
They are good enough in small fires, where
rapidity of action counts for everything; but
they are totally inadequate to the demands of
a conflagration. This was shown in the last
great fire in Allegheny City, when several hun
dred houses were destroyed, and in subse
quent fires, the last one being that at tbe Mo
nongahela House. Wo need something more
powerful something that will be as effective
with the tallest building as with tbe lowest.
There are such engines. They are on the mar
ket, for sale. They are as accessible to ns as
they are to others. Tbey costmore money than
the toys we so frequently see .rushing gayly
through our streets; but what is money to so
wealthy a city as Pittsburg T Safety should be
the only consideration a matter of such vital
importance. We had better pay for protection
than fire losses. It is cheaper.
But there is one thing which the "Prominent
Underwriter" overlooked to which I desire to
call attention. He seems very anxious for pro
tection against fires. I wonld remind him and
all others engaged in the insurance business
that they have a more important duty to per
form in this matter than formulating com
plaints of remissness againstTothers. No class
of citizens derive greater benefits from pro
tection than tbey. It is a question of money
with them, and tbey shonld embrace every op
portunity to co-operate with the authorities in
Improving the fire service. Heretofore, 11 1 am
not at fault, they bave chiefly distinguished
themselves in this direction by reap
ing the benefits of protection and
allowing others to pay the cost. Tbey
collect large premiums while tbe rest of the
community pay the taxes double taxes, in
fact, one to keep up the fire department and
one to sustain the insurance companies. This
Is hardly fair. There Is ground for reform
here. Insurance people are bound by every
consideration of equity to bear their share of
the burden which a fire department devolves
upon the community, and until they do so they
bave no right to complain. To look on while
the people do the work and foot the bills is un
just as well as ungenerous. They shonld will
ingly co-operate in everything to improve the
fire servic, and until they do this the full
measure of reform needed ana demanded can
not be secured. Business.
Pittsburg, December 1L
Man men miss great fortunes because their
minds are always full o big schemes. The
man with his head above the clouds is gener
ally a failure. A man must know how to utilize
the common things of life if be would prosper
in a material way. This is strikingly illustrated
in the lives of inventors. When an Inventor
goes in for a bis thine, like perpetual mo
tion, for instance, he goes to the poor house,
but when he puts a rubber tip on the end of a
lead pencil he makes a cool $100,000. The man
who knows how to handle the little opportuni
ties of life never fails to make his knowledge
pay. The inventor of metal plates for soles
and heels made about $6,000,000. If be bad
scorned such small matters, and turned his at
tention to steel armor for vessels, he wonld
bave -wasted his time and labor. Tbe roller
skate netted its inventor 1.000,000. The invent
ors of various littlo toys, puzzles and other
trifles enjoy incomes ranging as high as 75,000
a year.
Against all these successful men are arrayed
a host of bright but unsuccessful inventors
who spend their lives trying to accomplish
something great It is so in every line of
human endeavor. When a man wants tbe
earth be gets nothing. When be expects to rake
In a fortune in big scoops he dies in poverty.
Tbe successtul men of the world fix their at
tention on tbe commonest things the every
day matters and opportunities aronnd them.
But It Weathers (be Storm and Shaw Im
provement nt the Close,
The feature of the stock market yesterday
was a drive at Westlnghonse Electric, but it
weathered the gale in fine style. It opened at
4 broke on heavy selling to 46, rallied to
4 and closed steady at 47 bid and 4 asked,
with none on tbe market.
In explanation of the raid, a broker said:
"News of tbe big indebtedness of tbe company
something like $5,000,000, 1 think seems to
have just reached the street How it got there
I do sot know, for the company has made no
statement Perhaps somebody talked too much.
This, coupled with the general suspicion with
whioh all tbe Westinghouse properties are re
garded, naturally caused some realizing. 1 am
surprised that the break was not greater. The
prompt rally which followed shows that there
is no panic In tbe stock. Nor shonld there be,
for the company is crowded with business, and
its earnings are large enough to justify a S or 7
tier cent dividend right along. If Kir. West
inghouse 'would only make a statement of the
condition of his properties there wonld be no
trouble. It would strengthen confidence and
encourage holders of .his stocks. We believo
his properties are in good shape, bat would
like to know it officially."
Both pleasant Valley and Pittsburg, Alle
eheev aftid Manchester Railways made hand-
sosae advances. Air Brake was stronger, .and
lost ground, but Pittsburg was firmer. Citi
zens' was neglected. Philadelphia Gas was
firm at 30J asked and SO bid. The rest of the
list was without material change.

Terr Little Doing and Nothing Brewing to
Cause Excitement.
The oil market was weak at the opening yes
terday and steady at tbe close, with a fair scalp
ing business, but no pronounced movement or
expression. The opening price was 1 03
highest $1 04 lowest SI 03 closing SI 04.
What little strength the market bad was due
to moderate buying in Bradford and Oil City,
where some shorts were covered. Pittsburg
and New York were moderate sellers. New
York wanted cash oil, but could get none.
Washington field news was to tbe following
effect: Reports ot the drilling of a most im
portant well have reached this nlace. Gordon
No. 8, one of the old wells in this field, has been J
armed into tne mtn ran a ana is reported to De
doing SO barrels per hour. If this well holds
out and continues according to reports it will
be drilled deeper, and the production of these
fields doubled at a small expense.

No Important Changes In Railroad Shares.
but Nearly Everything Lets Go
The Trusts Active Sugar
Boycotted by
Labor. ,
New York, December U. The situation in
Wall street was a little better to-day, and the
news was generally of a favorable character,
while London was once more a fair buyer,
coming with "higher prices this morning and
buying orders during the day. The effect of
the manipulation of money rates in the last
few minutes of, business yesterday was still
felt, however, and the( traders were cautious,
and the bears looking only for weak spots, with
the result of dullness in the railroad list. The
Coal stocks. New England and fit. Panl warn
the only railroad stocks which showed. real ani
mation during the day, but the Trusts were
again active nnder tbe operations of the bears,
who used the known developments In regard to
them, in addition to a reported boycott by the
labor organizations against Sugar.
Chicago Gas was more at a feature than yes
terday, and was sold up and down apparently
by the same parties, "though its final figure was
materially lower than 'that ot last evening.
Western Union and tbe other Gould stocks
showed none of their recent animation and the
fluctuations were on tbe same limited scale as
those in the regular stocks. Only the Coalers
showed any increment, and rumors of a dis
agreementbetweenthe Lackawanna and Bead
ing, accompanied an attack upon those proper
ties, which was rewarded with substantial
effects in the case of the former, though tbe
impression upon Beading was .only email
New England also while quite active changed
its quotation but slightly, and the slightest rise
seemed to bring in selling orders, while the de
clines were met by support and the stock was
kept within the limits ol Vw ot through
out the day. Southern P&elio ms the weak

the day. Tbe close was quiet and steady at tbe
figures quoted. The final changes are gener
ally in the direction of lower prices, but for
flight fractions only except in the cases of
Chicago Gas and Denver, Texas and Ft. Worth,
which declined 1J per cent each, Lackawanna
and Sugar lJi each and Southern Pacific 1 per
The same moderate demand for railroad
bonds still continues and tbe sales of all issues
tp-day reached 0,631,000. Gulf, Colorado and
Santa Fe contributed S199.00Q. The market was
steady to firm throughout the day end the final
changes are almost invariably m tbe direction
of higherfigures.thonghtbeimportant'cbanges
are few in number.
The .Port says: Stocks opened moderately
strong, but without much recoveiy from the
downward reaction caused in tbe last 20 min
utes of business yesterday by the bidding no of
money to 15 per cent per annum. Of course it
was known that this bigh rate was exceptional,
and that It was made only for a small amount
wanted by some belated brokers, who had
failed to borrow it earlier in the day, when It
could have been borrowed at from 57 per
cent, was to be had again this afternoon at
Nevertheless it is realized that the banks are
pretty low in loanable funds, and as the end of
the year approaches they will be calling in
loans in order to be ready for the interests and
dividend disbursements in January, and wbile
there is no reason to expect any such pinch lor
money as was experienced two months or so
ago, the market will woik close and belated
borrowers will run the risk of having to pay
rates on some days.

VWhile 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 wonld be the
last In July X commenced using Dr.
Jayne's Expectorant, at the same time rub
bing my throat aq0 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. Feeling very much
better, I discontinued the use of the gargle
and the liniment, bnt still kept on with the
expectorant. This winter I have 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 (felling, I firmly believe
permanent cure would be effected by the ex
pectorant. At all events the good it has
done, and is doing me, makes me anxious to
recommend it to all who are suffering from
throat or lung complaints. Rev. W. Pike,

are moving upward. The finer grades of cheese
are very firm at quotations, and we expect to
record higher prices at an early day. iSggs join
in the upward movement Fresh-laid country
eggs are not easy to be bad at any price, and
those to be bad readily bring 20c per dozen in a
jobbing way. In the line of general produce,
markets are qniet Commission men attrioute
the quietness of trade to soft weather. A day
or two of ensp winter weather would stimulate
markets. Game and poultry are quiet by reason
of the soft weather.

the upward movement is purely speculative or
not Jobbers here anticipate bigher prices.
The outcome of the Brazilian Republic will

.Great Improvement.
It is not many years ago people travelled on
horseback or by stages; now fifty miles an hour
is not fast enough for them. Formerly people
wrote letters that were weeks in reaching their
destination; now the telegraph flashes thought
around the world. Formerly doctors bled their
patients for nearly every complaint: now they
nse advanced science of tbe highest order.
Prof. Austin Flint, of Bellevue College, says:
"The judicious use of alcoholic stimulants is
one of the striking characteristics of progress
in tbe practice of medicine during the last half
century." Prot Henry Mott, Ph. D F. C. S..
says- "By a most careful analysis I have fonnd
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey free from adulter
ations or foreign substances, and it deserves to
meet with great success." The weir-known
Dr. B. W. Hutchinson, of New York, says: "I
highly recommend Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey
and prescribe it extensively in mvnraptfrp "
Bev.B. Mills, of Princeton, Iowa, says: "I have
I used Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey with great
ueueut io my wue, wno is a connrmea invalid.
I know from experience it is a pure and most
valuable medicine. I am. also using it in the
case of my son. who is threatened with con
sumption. I am a Presbyterian clergyman and
a doctor of divinity, but I am not afraid to
recommend Duffy's Malt Whiskey as the
purest and most efficient tonic that I know of,
and my experience is a large one." dell-w
