TiiubsdaY. April 11, 18S9L J
It will be seen from the accompanying
report that local receipts of cattle are 300
head less than last 'week. In fact the
figures this week show a lighter run thatr
any time this rear. Good butcher stock
were fully 25c above prices that ruled last
week. Stickers did not advance, though
buyers were "-plenty and willing to pay full
market prices. The trouble both last week
and this week has been that the bulk of stock
ers and feeders received were of low grade, and
this class is not wanted by stock ralsereof
"Western Pennsylvania. All of good quality
and condition were picked up at once, and
many more of this kind would have found
ready customers. The proportion of light and
heavy cattle received this week was better
adapted to the wants of our borne trade than
for some time past.
There have of late been too large a propor
tion of light weights. The season for veal
calves is now at its height. About 12,000 head
have been on the market since Mondav. Prices
show drooping tendencies, with $1 50 as the
outside figure to-day.
Sheep nnd Lambs.
The market is red hot and prices are fully 50c
per cwt. above those of last week all along the
line. There were very few good wool sheep
among the supplies. The higher grades are
held back at this season by farmers until the
weather is sufficiently settled for clipping pur
poses. The clippers that are coming are of
oetter duality than the wool sheep.
Speaking of the present boom in sheep mar
kets one dealer said: "X look lor a break in a
few days. Already there are signs of a break
at Buffalo and other live stock centers. Mar
kets have been wild for a week past and a re
action is sure to come." Another stockman
said: "I look for a break, but not for a -week or
two yet. Farmers will hold back their sheep
until winter weather is certainly goc,e. Such a
storm as last Saturday shows that we are not
yet out of the woods, as far as danger from
weather is concerned. Put me down as be
lieving that the break will not come for a week
Markets at Chicago to-day are about steady,
with $4 65 to H 85 as the range. The run at
Liberty was 2,000 bead more this week than
last, and 4,000 more than the previous week.
Markets have been slow all the week, except
for choice selected Yorkers. With a very light
run yesterday and to-day markets are a shade
stronger and prices better than at the begin
ning of the week.

MARKETS BY WIRE.
Wheat Active at a Lower EnngeVjf Prices
Corn and Oats About Steady Hog
Products Lively and Jrrejrnlar.
CHICAGO Trading in wheat was quite active
to-day, principally for July delivery, which at
present is attracting the most attention. The
feeling was weaker and prices ruled lower all
closing figures of yesterday; July opened Kc
lower, sold off Jc more, advanced c and then
declined lc, advanced c and closed Kclower
than yesterday. The weakness and decline re
sulted from a renewed desire to sell, influenced
by the favorable showing made by the Govern
ment crop report, cloudy weather and rains in
The rain, it appears, according to the weather
map, was scattering, a pretty general fall of
rain in Southern Dakota, but little in Minne
sota and scattering over the Southwest. The
surface speculative trading on behalf of local
operators developed rather heavy selling,
especially by some two or three floor traders,
with good buying by others. The course of the
market would Indicate that selling predom
inated. Only a moderate business was transacted in
corn, fluctuations being confined within narrow
limits, and trading chiefly of a local character.
The feeling was comparatively steady, though
at times an easier tone was apparent, but
values did not vavy materially from the prices
established late in yesterday's session.
The feature of the trading in oats was the in
creased business, and the declines of c on
June and c on July, due to free general sell
ing and a lack of demand from local or outside
resources. At the decline sellers tried to buy
back part of their early sales, and In so doing
caused a reaction of ic The weakness in
the more deferred futures bad its effect on the

A BIG DEAL IN PETROLEUM LEASES
Said a prominent real estate dealer yes
terday: "I noticed a statement in one of
the city papers a day or two ago to the ef
fect that all the business sites in and about
Pittsburg had been Becured by corporations
or ipdividnals. If this were true it would
be alarming. But it is not true. There are
plenty of such sites on the market at reason
able prices. True, ttiey are not in the heart
of the city, which is fall of other business
better adopted to thickly-settled communi
ties, but tbey are convenient to the rivers
and railroads and are admirably adapted
to any kind of manufacturing. These
sites abound on both rivers
on the Monongahela from near Soho to
Braddock and above, and on the Allegheny
from the city line to several miles above
Sharpsburg, Wilkinsburg, Swissvale,
"Wall's Station; above the city, the "West
End and the Sewickley Valley below, con
tain many fine manufacturing sites, with all ad
vantages of natural gas and quick transporta
tion to alljiarts of the country. Few cities are
so well provided in this respect as Pittsburg,
and any attempt to create a contrary impres
sion is a blow at the best interests of the city."
Philadelphia is not only sustaining its repu
tation as a city of homes, but is making its
claim to the title unassailable. On Monday
permits tor about 400 buildings were taken out.
They will be put up by capitalists and sold to
working people at a fair valuation, and on the
easy payment plan. Pittsburg capitalists are
catching on to this spirit of enterprise. If
carried to a legitimate conclusion it will be of
great benefit to the city.
Samuel W. Black & Co. have a property on
Diamond street, below Wood, for which they
ask $40,000. They have been offered almost
that price, but are holding out for the full
amount. The offer was made by a gentleman
who believes the street will be widened and
thus enhance the value of property.
The neglect of the river interests by the gen
eral government is a standing grievance among
steamboatmnn. One of them said yesterday:
"If this neglect continues It won't be long until
the river interests are completely wiped out.
Ohio river navigation is becoming more diffi
cult every year, lean remember when there
were lines of magnificent passenger and freight
steamers dying regularly between Pittsburg
and all the lower country cities as far down as
New Orleans, and to the headwaters of the
Mississippi and Missouri, carrying Pittsburg
products to all of the business centers, whence
they were distributed throughout the country.
How is it now? A glance at our wharf will
furnish the answer. The railroads have been
fostered at theexpenso of the rivers until the
latter have become almost worthless for busi
ness purposes. The Government owes it to the
millions of people who are. In one way or an
other, identified with the river interests to
thoronghly investigate the subject and apply
the necessary corrections. To give up every
thing to the railroads would be an injustice to
the public for which no good reason could be
An important transaction in oil property at
Brush Creek was closed yesterday. Jennings
& Roth sold to the McCulmont Oil Company
their remaining one-halt interest in the Mc
Caully farm lease, with one well doing 80 bar

$25,000. Both parties to the transaction claim
to have made a good bargain.
A Liberty street jobber made some observa
tions yesterday that may be of value to trades
men. He pointed out the advantage of having
cash to pay for goods, especially in such a
season as this, when there is an oversupply of
everything in the produce line. A man with
ready money coming to the cltySsds the jobber
always ready to make concessions in prices,
whereas if he were selling on credit outside
quotations would be demanded. The advant
age thus gained by the cash buyer In most
cases furnishes a handsome profit.
Henry A. Weaver A Co. yesterday placed two
mortgages on city property one of $5,000 for
five years at 6 per cent, and the other $2,500 for
three years at 6 per cent. The money was
furnished by a local capitalist. It cannot be
too often repeated that there is enough of "the
sinews of war" in Pittsburg to supply all
legitimate demands of business. There is no
demand for foreign capital for Investment or
JUST LIKE MICAWBEE.
Stock Brokers HnnsloK Around Waiting for
Something to Turn Up.
Yesterday was an uneventful day in the stock
market, neatly everything being dull and weak
at both calls. Prices hung tenacionsly to the
old figures and there was very little disposition
shown by the brokers to disturb them. At the
opening of the afternoon session Captain Bar
bour faced the usual audience, and, after read
ing off the list, said: "The market is now open."
"Very open," remarked a broker who has sat
in the balls of legislation at Harrisburg. The
grind then- went on. Silverton bobbed up long
enough to allow a sale of 250 shares of itatSl;
K was offered for 250 more. This mine is as
much of a mystery as La Noria, It may turn
out another Consolidated Virginia. The unex
pected sometimes happens. La Nona rot a
bid of 2 for 13 shares: 50 were offered at the
same price, which broke its back. Bids and

OIL AND PK0EIB1TI0N.
The Boy Take a Straw Tote on the Pro
The oil market yesterday was dull, stale and
unprofitable. In the course of a lull, which
lasted pretty much all day. the boys took a
vote on the prohibition amendment, the result
being 29 in favor to 30 against. Several high
license advocates voted in the negative, on the
ground of the impossibility, as they believed,
of enfo.cing prohibition. The market opened
at 90c, advanced to 90c and thca to 80c
closing at 90c It was the opinion of a prom
inent broker that a change of some kind might
be expected to-day. Trading was very light,
footing up only 60,000 barrels. Oil-loaned flat.
Advices from Bellaire were to the effect that
the work of drilling was commenced on the oil
wells at Anderson's run, Dixon's, MoKelvey's,
Qiffen, Hon. John Patton and R. J. Henderson
farmsr and at several other places. Ex
citement runs high in Belmont county.
Nearly half of the connty has been leased
by oil operators. McKeown No. 12 drilled
deeper and was doing 40 barrels per hour
yesterday morning; No. 10 was doing 12 per
hour: No. 11 was doing 7 per hour: No. 6 was
doing 20 per hour. No change at Knox No. 4
or 8. The Union Oil Company's Knox No. 3
was at the top of the sand. The Crag, Wright
farm, well filled up 1,000 feet and the show was
small. Coast, at Turkeyfoot, was at the top of
the sand, and due. Painter's, Hughes farm,

Stocks Demonstrate They Possess Staring
Powers London a Heavy Bayer,
With a Good Domestic De
mand Advances All
Alone the Line.
New York, April IL The stock market
again demonstrated its inherent strength to
day, and in spite of heavy realization from the
trading element, again scored a material ad
vance for the day. The remarkable strength
of the London market for American securities
still continues, and the foreign houses here
were liberal purchasers to-day of their
specialties, most conspicuous of which were
Louisville and Nashville, Lake Shore, St. Paul,
Reading, Erie and Union Pacific The steady
demand for stocks from domestic sources con
tinued also, and after the cessation o( the sell
ing movement the market rapidly advanced.
The London quotations this morning were
from H to K per cent higher than our figures
of last evenincr. and this market onened uuon
the same plane, hut owing to the heavy realiz-
ations oi ine larger irauers mere was no
strength in the early dealings, and this en
couraged a demonstration against the list on
the part of the bears, Atchison being chosen as
the special point of attack, and it was forced
off a point, but the rest of the list retired only
to a shade below first figures. St. Paul de
clined, and this served to restrict the trading
in the cancers.
The movement was soon over and the market
then drifted into dullness and stagnation, ex
cept in a few specialties. The depression con
tinued until the last hour, when the buying of
Reading by some of the mqst prominent
brokers and Philadelphia interests, started an
upward movement which was extended to the
entire list, and all the leading shares partici
pated in the improvement which followed.
The market developed moro animation than
hadjbeen shown at any previous time of the
day, ''and marked advances were made all
around. Hock Island being specially conspicu
ous with a jump of m per cent, while Atchison
reached a point 2 per cent above its lowest
price of the forenoon. The highest prices were
reached shortly before the close and realizing
sales sbaded the list off a small traction, but
the closi? was active and strong at about the
best prices of the day.

Chesapeake and Ohio 5's contributed $184,000

The same is true of cheese. Domestic Sweitzer
