THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, BTTNDAT. MARCH 81, 1889.
PROPHETS OF EVIL
Tut to Inglorious Flight by a Few
Figures From Official Sources.
TRADE BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE
Pittsburg's Business Standing Contrasted
With That of Other Cities.
LiST IEAE IS LAID IN THE SHADE
Hope is an element of success in business
as well as other affairs of life. Courage is
another. Without these failure in almost
any undertaking is almost certain. A
'whining, complaining man or woman is un
fitted to assume the direction of any enter
prise where important interests aro in
volved. They are wet blankets, chilling
and paralyzing the best efforts of braver
people to remove tbo obstructions from the
path of progress. They not only refuse to
pnt their own shoulders to the wheel, but
discourage others from doinjr so. The world is
lull or such people, and the Injury they do to
the communities in which they live is past
Occasionally one of these lugubrious charac
ters, with a long face and mournful counten
ance, looking very much as If he bad lost all of
his friends and was anxiously awaiting his own
apotheosis, is encountered in Pittsbure. It is
true there is no room here for such persons,
but they manage to get a foothold somehow,
and sptnd their time In predicting awf nl things
for everything and everybody. They can see
no good in anything. Their stock argument is
that tho country is going to tne dogs, and there
is no use trying to save it; that business is flat
and constantly growing flatter ana they gen
erally wind up their haranguo by predicting a
grand smashup, compared to which those of
1S37.1S37 and lS72wero mere trifles. This seems
to be tho only pleasure they enjoy.
"Why won't they look at tho facts and read
the figures? Several of these gentlemen have
devoted most of their time for the last two or
three months in efforts to show that Pittsburg
was far behind every other city in the country
in the amount of business transacted. Every
sensible man nho reads the daily papers and
watches the course of the market5, knows that
this is not true. What are the factsT The
bank clearings printed every Monday in The
Dispatch show that Pittsburg is seventh in
the list of cities making returns, being ex
ceeded only by New York, Bolton, Philadel
phia, Chicago, St. Louis and San Francisco,
and is far ahead of Baltimore, New Orleans,
Cincinnati, Louisville, Milwaukee, Cleveland
and Montreal. What docs this prove Bank
clearings tell no lies. There is no better busi
ness barometer. When they are small, busi
ness is light: when they aro large, business is
beaTy. Of course they embody an element of
speculation, but this cuts a small figure here.
If it were eliminated from the returns of St.
Louis, Chicago and ban Francisco it would give
the Gas City a still higher standing.
But this is not alb The weeping Jonahs re
ferred to have been bold enough to assert that
this year's business, so far, shows a f aUing off
as compared with the same time last year. It
is easy to make a statement, but sometimes
hard to prove it. What do the figures show?
Take March, the business roll of which was
made up yesterday, as a sample of the three
expired months of this year. During this
month the clearings have been 12,735,139 9L
This is a pretty big sum for one month, isn't it?
It required a great deal of hustling to produce
it But there it Is, as entered by Manager
Chaplin on the books of the Clearing House.
There is no dodging the fact. List year, as
will be remombered, was one of tho most pros
perous in the history of the city, and when the
books were closed on the last day of January a
red line was drawn around the clear
ings to emphasize the fact that all
previous records had been broken.
This Mas pardonable pride under the circum
stances. Not to go over each month of 18SS.
What were the figures for March? Here they
are: Clearings, S41.089.21S Si This shows a
difference of $3,(35,022 96 in favor of the cur
rent month. The gains for January and Febru
ary were almost as great. Does this indicate
that business is flat as a flounder? The man
who would venture to say so would be valuable
as a museum attraction.
But there is additional proof that business is
in a satisfactory condition. There is more
money in tho savings banks than at the same
time last year. Labor is more fully employed.
There are no important strikes in progress.
Public and private credit is good. Budding
operations are, or soon will be, on a larger scale
than ever before. Within the past two weeks
124 permits have been taken out for new
structures of various kinds, which will cost, it
is estimated, over 150,003. The most of these
will be owned and occupied by working people.
At this rate of Increase Pittsburg will soon
divide the honor with Philadelphia as a city of
homes. A large part of the property purchased
this year has been paid for in cash. Several
millions of money have been loaned on mort
gage, but at least 75 per cent of it has been
borne capital. Our people are not under the
necessity of going into Eastern markets for
Stocks and oil were active the first part of
the week, but who orders became scarce later
on, and both closed dull and generally lower.
Heal estate maintained its activity, th sales
being numerous and some of them important.
Values were steady. There was more inquiry
for iron and a better feeling was developed,
with greater firmness in prices. Produco was
inovcrsupply and very dull. Drygoofig were
active, one house reporting sales amounting to
over S3, 000 in excess of the same week last year.
Pittsburg is becoming an important center for

There was very little animation In the stock
market yesterday, everything being dnll, and,
with two or three exceptions, ldwcr, the excep
tions comprising La Noria, which Bold at 1.
Switch and Signal, which went at Si and 23K
Charticrs Gas, with sales at SI, against 50 bid
the day before, and Central Traction, with 22
bid and X moro asked. It sold on Friday at
21J4- These stocks have been comparatively
quiet for some time, and it is thought in some
quarters that this is a favorable time to load
up. The favorites of the weok. Electric and
Philadelphia Gas, were for some cause ne
glected, only fire shares of tbo former and 120
of the latter changing hands. lectnc dropped
4 and Philadelphia below Friday's quota
tions. It should not be taken for granted that
these stocks are intrinsically weaker nor that
there is probability that they will yield to fur
ther depression, although this may be the re
sult of the downward movement; but rather
that the orders lor them having been filled,
speculators are desirous of testing their staying
qualities on their own merits that is, without
the help of outside influence before beginning
a new deal. Should they hold their own under
present conditions the probability of a further
advance will be largely increased. Sales on
'Change during the week aggregated some 8.000
shares, of which Philadelphia Gas and Electric
were the principal contributors. Private sales
were also large. Bids and offers:

The local money market shows a slow but
steady improvement. Tue usual expansion in
business circles at Cilsseisonof the year, to
gether with April settlements, has caused a
better demand for fundi, and resulted in a
slight appreciation in rates. The outgo of cur

yesterday, while checking and depositing were
quite active. Tho clearing house report'was
quite satisfactory, indicating that general trade
is in a prosperous condition, closing up the first

THE SITUATION IN OIL.
Bearish Field News Increased New Pro
duction for Dlarch Extreme Views.
There was nothing in the oil market yester
day to dazzle either dealers or outsiders. It
lacked vim from start to finish, being so life
less at the close that the boys put in part of the
time singing snatches of popular airs. It
opened at 90f, held at that figure for some
time, and about 11 o'clock sold up to 90. It
then weakened and closed at 90 the opening
price. The fluctuations were too few and nar
row to afford even scalpers an opportunity to
turnau honest pen ny.
The market was held up more to tide over the
bearish news, probably, than anything else.
The monthly report of field operations, due to
morrow, will show, it was stated, a larger new
production than for any previous month since
tho shutdown began. From tho best informa
tion obtainable the new production for March
will be between 4,000 and 6.000 barrels, while
tho reduction of stocks will fall below that of
Febrnarv. The McKeown well was reported
making 60 barrels an hour. The output of tho
Mashey well was reported on Friday as 450
barrels. It should have been 150. Sixty cent
oil was talked of after the close by some whose
wish was father to tho thought Tho Derrick
correspondent, Mr. Harrison, offered to bet it
would not fall below SO.
These aro the bearish influences which at
present dominate the market On the other
hand, a redaction of stocks is steaddy going on,
certificates are becoming scarcer, and the for
eign demand is increasing. New uses for oil
are also being developed. Arguing from these
facts, the bulls claim that the bottom has been
reached, and that the next movement will be
In the direction of an advance. Striking an
average between these two extremes, it is
pretty safe to say there will be no material
change in the situation for some time. That's
the way it looks to an outsider.

GETTING ON THEIR FEET.
Stocks Continue Their TJpvrnrd Wnrch Not
withstanding Sharp Drive by tho
Bears All of the Leaders
New Ydsx, March SO. The reaction from
the extreme depression of tho past few days,
which made some headway yesterday, was con
tinued to-day, and while there was a sharp
drive mado at the stocks which have been the
most prominent objects of attack, the effect
produced was only temporary, and the final fig
ures this afternoon show fractional gains all
over tho list The temper of the room this
morning was somewhat mixed, but there was a
disposition among the smaller shorts especial
ly to cover their outstanding contracts, and,
with some foreign purchases, the opening was
made at advances which in the general list ex
tended to KPer cent, while the Improvement
in Atchison was 1 per cent
The bears, however, renewed their tactics of
yesterday, and a sharp drive was made at all
tho stocks which were prominently weak yes
terday, and in a quarter of an hour the lowest
prices of the day were reached all over the
list Atchison dropped 1, Lackawanna and
New England IK. and others fractional
amounts, with Chicago Gas. Union Pacific,
Rock Island, Burlington, Missouri Pacific and
Jersey Central most prominent. The stubborn
resistance met with atthe concession, however,
caused an abandonment of the demonstration,
and covering was freely indulged In after that
time, the rally being almost as sharp as tho
Louisville and Nashville proved to be the
Strong point on the list, and rose 1 per cent,
without sharing in the early decline. There was
but little further change In the market, though
there was some reaction toward 11 o'clock, but
the upward movement was soon resumed
through New England, which became very
prominent Union Pacific and Atchison again
were forced off to the neighborhood of the low
est figures. After this flurry was over the Im
provement was continuous until the close,
which was active and strong at about the best
prices of the day, notwithstanding the fact that
the bank statement again showed a marked de
crease in the surplus reserve. Almost the en
tire list is fractionally higher, but Louisville
and Nashville andSan Francisco preferred rose
1 per cent each.
Kallroad bonds were again quiet and without
special feature of any kind, and while the mar
ket was generally firm in tone, the changes in
quotations were in but few cases for more than

fight at best from all sources. May opened
about the same as yesterday's, closing to lo
higher, declined to a point 2Kc, and closed
about 2c lower. July sympathized with the
weakness in May, and declined Jic, closing a
lower than yesterday. There was no encour
agement in outside market advices. Home
markets were weaker. Lower barometer
gave indications of a change in the
weather, possibly snow or rain, and this in
duced selling of tho new crop futures, and
increased tho weakness of some.
Corn was quiet and steady early, and moder
ately active and firmer later. Opening sales
were at about the close of yesterday, and
steady for a time. Operators who usually
trade in wheat then came into tho pit and pur
chased fair quantities and local shorts In cov

Paper From Sugar Cane.
The JRevue ScienUfiqut is urging French
planters in tbo sugar-producing colonies of the
Republic to turn their attention to the manu
facture of paper from sugar cane. The fibers
of the cane, says the journal named, give an
excellent paper, and chemical and mechanical
processes are easily carried out. A Mr. Walter
Forbes, of New Orleans, has lately exhibited
i in that city a dozen samples of white paper
prouucea irom sufcar uaoe, wuicu hbib uru
.nounced very good. The first quality costs 21
francs per 100 kilogrammes, and 500.000 kilo
grammes or stalks will produce 10,000 kilo
grammes of paper worth 2,100 franca, There
is no nse to sacrifice the sugar itself In using
tho cane for this purpose, and sugar growers
have therefore an opportunity of making a
profit which will to some extent balance their
losses from the declining value of sugar owing
to its over-prouueuon.

thoroughly Inspected just before tho Washing

probable that several of the city companies
