Chicago Only a light business was trans
acted In wheat to-diy, and the market ruled
steady and rather firm. At times trade was
very fair, and again at others very light, mainly
local and no special new features The open
ing was a shade above Saturday's closing,
prices being advanced about He, then declined
fie ruled steady and closed the same as Satur
day. There were pretty fair offerings early on
the part of a local trader, but the wheat was
absorbed without effecting any decline. A
prominent trader was reported as buying mod.
Cable advices quoted steady and firm mar
kets The visible supply showed a decrease of
304.000 bushels, and had a strengthening effect
on the market. The points showing increases
were Chicago, Detroit, Dnluth, St. LiOuis, Min
neapolis and Toledo, and the points showing
a decrease were Baltimore. Boston, Buffalo,
Kansas City and New York. The receipts in
the Northwest were small. The change to
colder weather may have induced some buying
of futures, as the growing wheat is without
any protection from a cold snac
There was a large business transacted in corn,
and the feeling developed was weaker, trans
actions being of a loner range, especially the
near futures. Ihe principal wcakeniug ln
ftnences were the continued liberal receipts
and the more favorable weather for the grad
ing of the present arrivals. There appeared to
be a good manv scattering longs In December,
and on the selling of the same the price broke
badly, which had a depressing influence on the
other futures. The market opened at abont
Saturday's closing prices, was weak, declining
in all Hli4c December showine the most
weakness, ruled steady and closed llc lower
than Saturday.
Oats were traded in moderately, and a steadv
feeling prevailed. There was no particular
pressure to sell, andja fair demand from two
large operators.
A fairly active trade was reported in pork,
and the feeling was steadier. Prices were ad
vanced 57c, but settled back again 35c,
and closed comparatively steady.
Trading in lard was moderately active, and
the feeling was steadier, prices were ad

The Ella Gordon property, on Perm
avenue, 44.x110 to nn alley, was sold yes
terday to Charles Lockhart for $70,000,
being a fraction over $1,500 a front foot. It
adjoins the Messier property, recently sold
to M. Seibert & Co. It is understood that
Mr. lockhart will tear down the old house
and erect a handsome business block oa the
lot early next spring.
It was reported yesterday evening th,at
Mr. J. J. Howley bad sold an East End resi
dence for S30.00O, but as he could not be found,
particulars are necessarily omitted.
The year is closing upon a condition of pros
perity in this country and this community
which has few parallels in the annals of trade.
In looking over the history of the past 12
months but little is seen to cause regret. There
were no disastrous failures. All of the great
industries were pushed to their utmost ca
pacity. Labor found full employment at fair
remuneration. Almost without exception tho
people employe as well as employer are
richer than they were 12 months ago.
But this, while a cheerful, is not the best
feature of the situation. The substantial basis
upon which everything of a business nature
rests causes hopeful anticipations for the com
ing year. There is every indication that the
industrial development of 1889 will be con
tinued during lb9a The home market for the
leading domestic products is still unsatisfied,
and this insures a prolongation of the present
remarkable activity. The new year, therefore,
should be hailed with confidence, not appre
hension. t
Words of warning may prevent a real estate
craze which would cripple or destroy the mar
ket. A Fourth avenue ageat remarked yester
day: '-Recent articles in The Dispatch in
regard to property on side streets and other
obscure localities were timely, and I tbink they
will have a good effect. People buy property
for what they can mako out of it. If its pro
ductive capacity has not been reached, they are
willing to pay a round figure for it, .but when it
is bringing all the rental occupants of such
property are able to pay, they will gauge their
offers on that basis. They know at once what
it is vorth to them, and will not give more.
Owners of such property, if they want to sell,
should avoid fancy prices. Bach property is
the last to feel the effects of a boom."
These remarks are correct in the main.
While property of the kind in question varies
in value less than that more eligibly situated,
still it is amenable- to the fluctuations of the
market. What The Dispatch desires to in
culcato is that owners of this description of
property by holding out for exorbitant prices,
as ts frequently the case, shut themselves out
of the market altogether. This works harm to
them, to the city, by obstructing improvements,
and to business generally. It Is unreasonable
to expect S1O.O0O for a 55,000 house and lot, no
matter where situated, but more particularly
if it be on a back street, and renting for all it
will ever bring.
The following was caught on the wing yes
terday. Two men talking on a street corner.
Said one: "I will sell you the buildings, rigging
and tour acres for $30,000." Remarked the
other: "That is a fair offer. 1 will think about
it." What were they talking about?
Early in the year it was predicted by some
that so many office buildings would be erected
as to make them a losing investment, but such
has not been the result. They are all occupied
and the demand is not supplied. Rooms in
buildings in course of erection are engaged
months ahead, as in tho case ol the National
Bank of Commerce and some others. Build
ings of this kind pay from 8 td 12 per cent,
showing that they aro a good investment.
There isroouufor more of them. . -
The following expresses the views of one of
the oldest real estate dealers in the city on a
subject of general importance: "The great
need of the city at present is not office build
ings, bufmore well-arranged and regulated
warehouses. The suggestion of The Dis
patch to take down old buildings and put up
new ones that will pay better is a good one; but
first we should have a larger number of com
modious business houses to increase the volume
of our trade. They are very scarce. We can't
bring outside trade here until we can offer bet
ter business houses to accommodate it. This
is a subject worth looking into by investors."
Glass manufacturers report trade only fair.
They expect sales to fall off during the period
of yearly settlements. Orders for green glass
ware grow Uss and only a medium traue is be
ing done. There is a fair demand for window
glass, without new developments. Prescrip
tion glass is dull. Jobbers are deferring pur
chases of chimneys until the now year, but it is
expected they will bay more liberally then.
There are no new features to the trade. Bales
of tableware are meager and but llttlo is being
done in any line Preparations for the next
season engage the cbief attention of manufac
turers. The condition of the glass trade in the
Ohio valley and the West is a reflex of what
obtains here.
A prominent lumber dealer, whose office is
on Fifth avenue, remarked yesterday: "One of
the most profitable trades a young man can
learn is to become a good sawyer. The trade
cannot all be learned from theory, nor yet all
from practice. It requires a mechanical, a
good theoretical knowledge of the vanous
kinds of timber and machinery, and long ex
perience and hard work. Good sawyers are
the scarcest of all mechanics and are In de
mand in all sections. They are hard to find
when neeaed because they do not have to
tramp the country over to find a job."
Stock Active for Monday, and Prices Show
Snine Improvement.
Considerable spirit was developed in tbo
stock market yesterday, and sales ere unex
pectedly large for Monday, and practically the
end of the year, footing np 345 shares, of which
200 were Philadelphia Gas.
With one or two exceptions prices were firm,
and some of the favorites were higher. Phila
delphia Gas was one of the strong features.
Luster was sold at 48, and closed with 44 bid.
New York and Cleveland Gas was wanted at
35, but was held at 37. The weakest spot in the
market was Wheeling Gas, which was bid
down to 20.

The oil market yesterday showed a small im
provement over the worst days of last week,
but it was featureless and narrow, with light
trading all round.
The opening was WS. highest 103, lowest
102JS, closing 10SJ4. Pittsburg and Oil City did
most of the buying. Bui the support was In
sufficient, and the market sagged off and closed
at next to the lowest point of the day.
There was very little news, important or
otherwise. It was rumored that the Standard
would show its band early next month, and a
break is looked for by some. Saturday's clear

A Big Jump in Unlet for Money Throw a
.Wet Blanket Over Speculation in
Rnllrond Shares Tho Trusts
New York, December 30. The string
ency in the local money market was again
the controlling factor in the stock market
to-day. nnd weakness and demoralization
were the features in the early trading,
though a partial recovery late gave a better
tone to the market.
The unusual,and,of Cknrse.unexpected action
of the governors of the Bahk of Eueland this
morning in raising their rate of discount from
5 to 6 per cent, when the regular meeting day
is Thursday, and a reduction has been ex
pected for some time, caused considerable de
moralization among the foreign holders of
American securities, and while the London
figures came materially lower this morning
this was supplemented by liberal selling for
foreign account at the opening of business
here. The tightness of money here was inten
sified, and the rates on call were 25 per cent
and later touched -JO before a reaction was had.
The rate fell away rapidly to 13, and after all
borrowers were accommodated it fell to 4 at
the close. The action of the Treasury Depart
ment in offering to prepay the January interest
without rebate had more than anything else to
do with the easing up of the money rate, but
the further decline in sterling exchange was
also an influential factor.
The selling of the foreigners at the opening,
supplemented by free short siles by the bears
and traders, the latter beinc btanshly Inclined
for the time beinc:. caused a complete demoral
ization of quotations, and first prices were
from H to 1 percent lower than Saturday's
closing figures, Louisville and Nashville, Erie
and Jersey Central showing the largest de
clines. The pressure to sell created marked
activity, and lurther small fractional declines
were made on a large business during the first
hour. The concessions in prices brought out
some good buying, hon ever, aud some or the
Croups of stocks were well supported, the
Grangers and Gould stocks with Louisville
anu jNasnviiie ueinc especially conspicuous.
The resistance to the decline with the cessa
tion of the London selling after that time
caused a let-up in tbo pressure from the bears
also, and notwithstanding the steadily mount
ing rates for money, prices began to recover,
after tne first rush was oyer. Dullness and
firmness then became the only features of the
market. Union Pacific furnishing the only im-
Sortant movement, and the usual stagnation
ad settled, down upon the market before
noon. The list la almost invariably lower,
though the declines in the afternoon are frac
tional only, not one important net loss being
recorded. The Trusts were quiet and without
Railroad bonds showed a little more anima
tion and sympathized with the weakness in the
share list, being heavy to weak throughout the
session, though as usual the final figures show
few important changes. .
The -Post says: The enormous balance of
trade in favor of the United States and against
Europe in consequence of our heavy exports
in the last four months were already preparing
the way for imports of gold, but the high rates
for money in the market last week, and pros
pect of their possible oontlnuancefor a week
yet, were an incentive to move- capital from
London to New York immediately for the sake
oi me interest, aua tuis caused a reauction 01
H per cent in the rates for sterling exchaoge
this forenoon, putting it down to the gold Im
porting rate. It was undoubtedly in anticipa
tion of this and for the purpose of preventing
the export of gold from London to this country
that the unusual action of the governors of the
Bank of England was taken in advancing the
rate on Monday, Instead of the regular day on
While money was ranging from 20 to 80 per
cent per annum on the Stock Exchango this
forenoon it was knowu that checks to the
amount of near $3,000,000 for the payment of
the January interest on the Government debt
bad been forwarded from Washington, and
though it was supposed that abont $0,000,000 of
this would come at once into the New York
banks the Assistant Treasury bad no authority
to pay them nntll January 1, which would
practically give no relief to the money market
before Thursday or Friday; so that altogether
it was avery severe pinch.

Early Monday morning last, a police officer

Captain James Meredith, of Chicago, is
in the city, as an agent of the "World's Fair
propaganda of that pushing city. He has a
novel contrivance intended to boom his
town's claims. It is a small paper stamp,
the size of a postage stamp, gammed on one
side and on the other bearing a red seal like
a circular saw. In white letters on the seal
are the words, "1892. World's Exposition,
