THE MARKET BASKET.
Fish and Oysters Continue Active at
Expense of Meats.
STRAWBERRIES DRIFTING DOWN.
Km Garden Stuff Grws Cheaper and
Moves More Freelj.
SPEINGOKCEENS FEOM THE SOUTH
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch; 1
-Feidat. April 6, 18K9L J
The last week of March showed a decided
improvement in the retail vegetable and
fruit trade over previous weeks. At the
Diamond Market stalls reports were very
bright for that week. Unfavorable weather
as April dawned, gave a slight backset to
trade, so that this week has scarcely kept tip
the record. There are, however, signs to-day
that the ground lost the first half of the week
will be recovered. A pleasant Saturday will
bring all the business that market people can
wellattend to, judging from the activity to
day. Green stuff is steadily drifting toward prices
within the reach of the aTerage consumer's
pocketbook. Southern strawberries and home
raised cucumbers are much below last Satur
At the fish and oyster stalls a good week's
trade is reported. The season of frozen fish
is now about over. About all of the frozen ar
ticle now for sale are herring. The supply of
fresh fish is good, and the demand equally
cood. Lovers ol lake and ocean products hav
ing long been shut up to the frozen article in
dulge more freely when the fresh appears.
This has improved demand the past week.
A leading dealer speaking of Lenten Influ
ence on the fish trade, said: "Our business is
usually at its best afier Lent is over. What
the Christian fast does in benefiting our trade
is that it creates a demand for our products at
a time of the year when otherwise business
would be at its worst"
Activity at the fish stalls is offset by quiet
ness at the butcher stalls. There is no change
in the price of choice cuts of beef, though the
rough parts are sold at concessions.
Spring chickens from the Sunny South have
put in an appearance the past week, and read
ilv bnnjr $2 00 per pair. It has thus far been
impossible to secure enough to supply the de
mand. The scarcity is attributed byone dealer
to the enormous consumption at Washington
during the inauguration week. Every lour
years there appears to be a shortage in this
line immediately after the induction of a new
President. Young pigeons are on the stalls at
H 50 a dozen and snipe at S3 00.
Butter and eggs are In full supply and at
prices a shade lower than a week ago. Good
country rolls are to be had at 25c with 40c as
the outside price for fancy.
Florists report an improved demand for ar
ticles in their line without any change In
In almost all the lines of market basket ma
terials greater activity is reported, with a gen
eral dntt toward lower prices as the time for
new garden stuff draws nearer.
Following are the latest retail prices:
The prices called for at the Diamond Markets

Stay Wheat Lower and July Higher Both

and Oats Firm Pork Steady
Xard Steps Up.
Chicago. "Wheat was active and -unsettled
to-day and was controlled almost wholly by
local influences. It was the general belief that
the operator who has been long of May, and
whom the combination or bull interest have
been endeavoring' to force out, had sold,
through different brokers to-day, and that the
off erings were taken up by clique brokers.
Trading, it is claimed, was heavy. At the open
ing the market was unsettled, and alter fluctu
ating for some time sold off to a point 2Je be
low yesterday's closing, recovered some and
closed about Ho lower.
July, although opening a shade weaker, de
veloped more or less strength, and advanced
ifi above inside figures and closed a higher
than yesterday. It was claimed that the same
parties who have been credited with being con
nected with the bull side of May wheat, had
been theprincipal buyers lor July and sup
posed to be for the purpose of covering short
sales made some time ago at higher prices.
Corn ruled quiet, but firm. Transactions
were confined largely Jo the operations of room
traders, and fluctuations were limited to Kc
m nv nat wota f alrlv active dnrln? the earlier
part of the session, but the more deferred
futures were slow. May advanced Jic, and the
appreciation was fairly maintained.
Mess pork attracted more attention, and
trading was rather active. Opening sales were
made at 57c decline, but rather free buying
forced prices up 2022Kc Later the matket
was a trifle easier, and prices receded 5g7Kc,
A steady feeling prevailed in lard, but trad
ing was somewhat lighter. Prices ruled about
2c higher, and the market closed quiet.
Only a limited trade was reported in short
ribs, and the feeling was stronger. Prices ruled

A "COSTLY PROJECT.
Objections of Citizens to the Widening
of Diamond Street
HARD FACTS ABOUT MOETGAGES.
A Bemote Western Totra Boasts of Supe
. riority OTer the Gas City,
STOCKS STB0KG AND PETE0LE0H WEAK
Concerning the project for widening Dia
mond street, a gentleman who desired his
name omitted said yesterday: "It would
be a costly improvement, and has, and will
continue to encounter, determined opposi
tion. It would take 25 feet from every lot
on the upper side ot the street from Smith
field to Diamond Market, and involve the
practical destruction of every honse, some
of which are large and costly. The rear
part of the Opera House would be torn
away. This wonld involve a large amount
of money. In view of the fact, as generally
understood, that it is a speculative move
ment, I think there should be no attempt to
carry it out without fall consideration of
all the interests affected. In regard to the
cost, justice to all concerned wonld seem to
require that it should be met by the property
benefited, and that no part of it should be laid
upon the public, as some have proposed."
The difference in the mortgage business be
tween Pittsburg and some ot the Western cities
Indianapolis and Chicago for example is at
once striking and instructive. Here the money
thus obtained is nsed for the purchase and
betterment of real estate, which has a fixed
value an.d is always worth what it costs. There
it is used to a large extent in speculation. The
cities mentioned, and some others in the Wild
West are plastered all over with mortgages
for which there is nothing to show except
stock certificates and bonds of various wildcat
enterprises, whose inflated values divest them
almost entirely of the element of security.
They could not hold up under a financial pinch.
Old citizens still maintain that the flood of
1832 was the greatest ever known in this part of
the country, and as.proof point to the fact that
a steamer drew up alongside of the old Robin
son mansion in Allegheny and took furniture
ont of the third story windows. It then crossed
to this side of the rjver, steaming up Penn ave
nue as far as Fifth street where it discharged
its cargo. The water wheri Hotel Anderson
stands was four feet deep. During the 18S4
flood the depth of water at the same place was
not over two feet
A Tacoma, W. T., paper, reproducing an ar
ticle from The Dispatch in reference to the
movement in favor of a Real Estate Exchange
here, pokes fun at Pittsburg, saying that it is
missing golden opportunities of making a great
name for itself by much talking and little
doing. It admires our conservatism but con
demns what it calls our lack of enterprise.
Our Far West cotemporary should remember
that great bodies move slowly, and that al
though Tacoma organized a Real Estate Ex
change while our people were talking about
one, Pittsburg will eventually reach the stick
ing point and come to the front with an institu
tion that will have national weight and influ
ence. It would be unwise, however, to let the
project sleep mncb, longer. The magnitude of
the real estate business demands an exchange.
Dealings cannot much longer be satisfactorily
transacted any other way.
The following may Rive a valuable hint to
some one of the many able electricians in
Pittsburg: It is stated that a traveling electric
light has come into use in Germany. It some
what resembles the steam fire engine, the tank,
boiler, engine and dynamo being mounted upon
a wagon, which can be drawn by a team of
horses to any desired location. When the ap
paratus reaches its destination, arc lamps are
raised upon poles stayed with wires fastened to
stakes driven in the ground. The whole plant
is simple, and stated to work satisfactorily.

THE PEDDLING POLICY
Of the Pikers Bringing Rain Upon the Oil
Yesterday was one of the dullest days of the
year on the Oil Exchange. There was no vim
in the market The opening was weak at 90.
Moderate buying in New York and Oil City
lent a bullish tinge to the proceedings, and the
price went up to 90. it then slumped to 9
advanced to 90, where it hung for some time,
and closed at 90 the same figures at which
it started. A broker said: "The legitimate
situation justifies dollar oil. bnt the pikers
won't have it. They ignore statistics for the
sake of profits that are about equal to a day's
wages for a mechanic. When stocks are weak
they give that as an excuse for their conduct;
wben tbey are strong they have nothing to
say. I believe if there were only a bucketful
of oil on top of ground tbey would attempt to
bear it This peddling policy is ruining the

A Complete Revolution in the Speculative
Slarket Prominent Houses Among
the Bayers The Active List
Higher With Few
New Yoek, April 5. The trading in the
stock market to-day gave additional evidence
of the complete change in tbe speculative tem
per, which has occurred during the past two
days, and tbe buying to-day was by the most
prominent houses, while the sellers were princi
pally tbe local bear contingent there being a
marked falling off in the selling orders received
from out of town, especially from Boston and
Chicago. The market was decidedly broader,
tie dealings being extended to more stocks
than usual of late, and the leaders did not show
such a large proportion of the aggregate trans
actions. A notable feature was the resump
tion of the marked advances in the specialties,
of which several that have been dormant for
months became conspicuous for their improve
ment Tnere was a moderate volume of busi
ness at the opening, and first prices were gen
erally from Vi per cent higher than last
evening's figures, but except in Jersey Central
and Texas Pacific the opening prices were not
The pressure was not long maintained, as tbe
demand for stocks became more general, and,
before tbe end of the first hour, the entire list
rallied and was quickly brought up to some
thing above the opening figures. There was a
large crowd trading in Atcbiton, and it became
the most active stock on the list the reports
that the new names to be voted for at the next
meeting are very strong ones, togetber with the
fact tbat the closing of tbe books is set for next
Tuesday, stimulating the purchasing of tbe
stock. The market quieted down toward noon,
but tbe upward tendency still continued, and
in the afternoon the movement became more
pronounced, with Missouri Pacific, Burlington,
Rock Island and Atchison specially con
spicuous. Later the reports that the earnings of the St
Paul for the quarter would show an increase in
tbe net of about $1,100,000 brought that stock
more to the front and It moved up sharply to
ward delivery hour. Louisville and Nashville
was also higher on the increase ot 17 per cent
in its March earnings, and at tbe same time
the Coalers, which had been rather sluggish
throughout the forenoon, moved up with the
rest ot the list The market finally, closed
quiet but strong at or near tbe best prices of
the day. Among the specialties which became
conspicuous for their advances were Pittsburg
and Western preferred, Pullman, Milwaukee,
Lake Shore and Western preferred, Nickel
Plate 1st preferred. Consolidated Oas and San

Three Seasons Why
People should buy goods on easy payments:
First, it is most impossible for people of
moderate means to accumulate enough
money to furnish a house properly.
Second, that a better class of goods can be
purchased than though yon were compelled
to pay spot cash.
Third, having your house properly fur
nished it is an encouragement to live and
be more happy; you take more pleasure in
keeping good goods in nice order, and by
so doing are considered good housekeepers.
The satisfaction is complete; your friends,
yourself and yourdealerare satisfied, sowhat
more is desired? Be wise in your genera
tion, and let Hopper Bros. & Co. furnish
your homes. Call at 307 "Wood street, and
look over their extensive stock of goods;
sold on easy payments. ttsso

Conntrr Produce Jobbing Prices.
More signs of activity appeared in front of
the Liberty street commission houses to-day
than for some weeks past. Creamery butter is
specially active. Eggs are moving freely with
llKc as the outside figure. A leading jobber
in these lines reports tbat bis trade was better
yesterday and to-day than any time this season.
Said be: "I refused an order for GO cases of
eggs at lie yesterday." Another whose trade
is chiefly in general produce, and who has not
been able to see anything good in the outlook
for months past,sald: "Trade is a shade better.
The tone is healthier. It begins to look as if
bottom has been reached, and tbat better
things are before us." Bright weather and
active demand have certainly put a better
heart into produce commission merchants.

Our little girl when but three weeks old
broke out with eczema. We tried the prescrip
tion from several good doctors, but without
any special benefit. We tried S. S. S., and by
the time one bottle was gone, her head began
to heal, and by the time she had taken six bot
tles she was completely cured. Now she has a
full and heavy head of hair a robust, healthy
child. I feel it but my duty to make this state
ment. H. T. SHOBE, Rich Hill, Mo.
