SIOXDAY. May 8, 18S9. f
With s very heavy run of stock, markets
have iailed to come up to general anticipa
tions. The run was so light last week, and
stock so quickly cleaned up that dealers
looked for active markets this week. Their
hopes have been blasted by heavy supplies.
Not only was the run heavy, bnt quality
was below the average of recent weeks. A
leading butcher who procures his supplies
from Herr's Mind, said, "the grade of cattle
recelTed this week was poorer on an average
than it has been for several months. A larce
proportion of the supplies was of the low
grade. The range of last week's prices were
fairly maintained. Drovers reported that
they had to pay more In Chicago this week than
last. But they were not able to persuade their
customers here that there should be an ad
Taaoe on rates.
Choice heavy western beeves, from 1,500 to
1,600 in weight, were sold at $4 85 to $5 00. Me
diums, 1.200 to 1.400. H 65 to S4 8a Prime light
cattle. 900 to 1,100,(4 10 to 4 4a Common to
fair thin steers, $3 25 to S3 60. Fresh cows were
In large supply and slow at 20 to $45. Calves,
too, were slow at a range of 3 to 5c. Stags,
dry cows and heifers were 3 to 4c There
were In the supplies a goodly number of year
lings, weighing about 600 pounds, which sold
From Chicago receipts were as follows: L

It will be seen by figures below that receipts
were above last week. With the exception of
spring lambs, supply was in excess of demand
and prices -were off a full quarter from rates of
a week ago. More spring lambs could have
been sold than appeared.
There were no wool sheep in the market and
none were called for. Prune heavy wethers

Butchers have generally quit killing hogs,
and as Herr's Island is no market for packers,
receipts are expected to be light at this season
of;the year. Notwithstanding light receipts
markets were slow at a fall of 25c per cwt. be
low rates of last week. Heavy Western hogs
brought $4 Do to Jo 00; mediums. $5 10 to $5 15;
light, S4 50toS4 75:stock pigs, $4 00 a pair.
From Ohio Needy & Smith received 147 head,

Advices from Chicago to-day are that hogs
are og there from 5c to 15c Our pork packers
are strong in the faith and hope that farther
declines are bound to come, as hogs are too

Widening of Diamond Street Not
Blocked bj Building Operations.
IT IS STILL 'A LIVELY ISSDE.
Somelmportant Transactions in Beal Estate
Away Out Penn Avenue.
CAPITALISTS ASKING MORE FOE MOKEI
The prosecution of work on the buildings
at the corner of "Wood and Diamond streets
is not accepted as an Indication that the
project for improving the latter thorough
fare has been abandoned. Said a promi
nent business man yesterday: "The owners
of the buildings in question are proceeding
on business principles. They don't feel
like letting the property lie idle; they want
to get some good out of it. Even if the
buildings are finished, they will add but a
trifle to the cost of the improvement I
think the sentiment in favor of widening
the street is growing, and look for some definite
action before long. It is the most important
question now before the Pittsburg public"
In arranging the affairs of the estate of the
late Colonel J. Heron Foster it was found de
sirable to offer the Fifth avenue property on
which .The Dispatch business office stands at
public sale, under an order of the Orphans'
Court, in the process of settlement. The above
was done yesterday. The highest bid was from
Mr. J. H. Emery, representing the chief parties
in interest, and amounted to 8140,000. This was
subject to a dower interest, and to existing
leaseholds of the premises by The Dispatch
and other tenants, to run a number of years.
Though the figure bid was a handsome one,
showing a fine Increase inFlfth avenue values,
it was thought that still better might be reached
by postponement, which was accordingly or
dered till Friday next. The mechanical re
quirements of thepapernecessitated sometime
ago the erection of the mnch larger and more
commodious new Dispatch building on Dia
mond street for publication purposes, but its
main advertising offices will continue, as here
tofore, at the Fifth avenue building.
There is quite a flurry in real estate on Penn
avenue, East End, and particularly on that
portion lying between Hiland avenue and
Rebecca street, where some of the East End
capitalists have been quietly buying up all the
available property they can get, and a number
of transfers have been made recently Involving
over 8100,003. One very desirable residence
property on Black Horse Hill changed hands
for $50,000, and will oe sub-divided and offered
to the public as desirable building sites by the
15th of this month. This portion of Penn ave
nue has been comparatively quiet for some
time, but the cable road and the opening of
cross streets, such as Negley and Euclid ave
nues and St. Clair and Beatty streets, and the
paving of Negley and Center avenues and
Baum street, have brought it into direct com
munication with the Baum plan and also with
the section lying north of Penn avenue. Asa
result an advance is assured similar to that
affecting the avenue further down in the old
city. Already a number of newand substantial
business houses have appeared in this locality
and a number of others have been projected,
Where there's a will there's away. A former
Alleghenian bought a lot near Wilkinsburg a
month or two ago, and to save rent he put up a
shanty of rough boards at a cost of about $10,
where he is living with his family while his
house a comfortable little frame is being
built This spirit of independence this deter
mination at any reasonable sacrifice to live
within his means If persevered In, will surely
iMd to comfort if not fortune. The example
of this man is worthy of large Imitation.
That there has been, and is, a large move
ment in the money market is shown by the fact
that two months ago it was freely offered on
mortgages at 6 per cent, without State tax.
Now, 5 per cent, with the tax, is asked for it on
the same security a difference of a trifle over
one-half of 1 per cent. This shows that there

There is a good prospect for cheap bread the

flour dealer' returned from a trip to the West

he never saw the wheat crop in better condi

to corn. Spring work was in full progress
everywhere, and the farmers were in excellent
spirits over the promise of a rich reward for
their labor. Another thing that forcibly im

Talk among the brokers was nearly all of a
kind, all of .them regarding the report as a bad
one. In brief. It shows an increase of indebt
edness of between 8800,000 and 8400,000 during
the past year, where everybody was led to sup
pose that there had been a decrease. There
had been rumors for a month or two that 81,
600,000 of the stock bad been sold above par,
making It scarce, when the fact seems to be
that only 5379,000 had been disposed of. It was
also stated that the floating debt had been can
celed by the sale of bonds, bnt the report
shows that this was mere supposition, as the
increase in liabilities is about 8350,000.
The recommendation for quarterly Instead
of monthly dividends was favorably regarded
by the brokers, a. If adopted, it will result in
keeping the books open a reasonable time to
make transfers. Under the present system
they are closed about one-third of the time

Oil Still Dropping, With a Tendency To
Trard Loyrer Values.
The oil market was tame and uninteresting
yesterday. Continued high rates for carrying
is demoralizing both sides. The opening price
was 84 from which point there was a gradual
decline to 84& followed by a rally to 84,
where it held until the afternoon, when, near
the close, it broke to S2, and closed at 82, a
loss for the day of 2 cents. Carrying here
was from 60 to 75 cents, flat at New York, and
from 15 to 25 at Oil City and Bradford. The
feeling at the windup was rather bearish, as
shown in the trading in puts and calls. Busi
ness was of moderate proportions, and con
fined to professionals. Field news was bear
ish. A broker said: "I am of the"oDlnlon that
the market has not- touched bottom, and look
for lower prices to-morrow." i

Stocks Begin Weak but Brace Up and Re

Scarce for Delivery Railroad
Bond Firm to Strong.
New YonK,.May 6. The stock market began
the new week with a moderate volume of busi
ness which, however, dwindled down to very
small proportions before the day closed. There
was a strong tone displayed throughout, and the
fractional losses at the openingwere recovered,
and even the realizations at the close failed to
get the majority of the list down below Satur
day's closing figures. There was less buying for
the foreigners, but the local contingency
showed a disposition to advance prices, and
while the market was more than usual of late a
traders' market the strong tone was very appa
rent. The report from Boston that Messrs.
Kidder, Peabody & Co. had proxies for 450,000
shares made Atchison the prime factor fn the
market, and the buying of that stock and its
kindred securities was most marked by Boston
and Western people
Burlington and Quincy was also bought by
the same interests, and while it moved up only
fractionally it kept abreast of the other West
ern stocks and closed with a small net gain.
All the Western shares were scarce for deliv
ery, and Beading also was very hard to bor
row, a large amount having been called in and
the stock at one time commanded a premium
of 1-32 of 1 per rent per day for use The Coal
stocks, however, were very quiet and. were not
at any time a factor in the course of prices.
The recent utterances of Mr. Gonld upon the
market made bis stocks pnme favorites to-day,
and Missouri Pacific again sprang into activity
and it rose materially. Manhattan shot np 1
per cent suddenly In the afternoon, but the
otners were quiet anu wimout leainre. junong
the low-priced shares Chicago was quite strong
in the forenoon, bnt became dull and steady
with the rest of the list later in the day.
Opening prices were generally slight frac
tions lower than Saturday's closing figures,
but Lonlsville and Nashville was lower.
The market, however, while quite irregular de
veloped considerable animation and strength
in spots, and Atchison and Missouri became
Eromlnent for strength. In the afternoon,
owever, the movement died away, the market
becoming dnll and uninteresting, and although
the tone of the dealings remained firm, the
movements were confined to the smallest frac
tions and toward 2 o'clock the realizations
sagged the entire list off and the close was
qniet but heavy generally at small fractions
better than the opening figures. The great
majority of the stocks on the active list is
fractionally higher this evening, bnt the only
important change is a gain of 1 per cent in
Railroad bonds displayed the same charac
teristics which have distinguished them for the
past week, and on a moderate volume of busi

A BADICAL CHANGE PE0P0SED.
Secretary Noble Wants tho Patronage of
the Government Printing Office.
rSPXCIAI. TZLXQBAII TO ME SISFATCH.
"Washington', May 6. There is likely
to jbe a spirited contest in the next Congress
over the Government Printing Office. Sec
retary Noble is credited with the desire to
change the. management of the office,
and it is said he has proposed to
several members of the next Congress that
a move in this direction be made. Secretary
Noble's proposition is that the office be
placed under the jurisdiction of the Interior
Department. This would be a radical de
parture, and the proposition will undoubt
edly meet with serious opposition. In fact,
it has already provoked murmurs of discon
tent. At present the printing office is practi
cally responsible to Congress. It is
an independent bureau. The Bureau
-of Engraving and Printing is under the
supervision and direction or the Treasury
Department. The printing office is managed
by the Government Printer, without refer
ence to any of the heads of departments.
The patronage of the printing office is very
large. There are about 4,000 places to be
distributed among the faithful, and Senator
Gorman was credited, immediately after the
incumbency of the late administration, with
having used the patronage of the office to
pay off almost all of his political debts in
Keit to the President the members of
Congress have most influence with the Gov
ernment Printer. That is the reason the
proposition of Secretary Noble will meet
with such determined opposition, particu
larly in the House. The printing
office is dependent on Congress for
its maintenance, and in the interest
of full appropriations the printer
is likely to'deal very considerately with the
members of the Appropriations and Print
ing Committees of bothhouses. Representa
tive Farquhar, of New York, expects to be
the Chairman of the House Printing Com
mittee in the next Congress, and he will
fight the proposition of Secretary Noble
from the beginning.

I am satisfied that Cancer is hereditary In my
family. My father died of it, a sister of my
mother died of it, and my own sister died of It.
My feelings may be imagined, then, when the
horrible disease made its appearance on my
side It was a malignant Cancer, eating In
wardly in such a way that it could not be cut
out. Numerous remedies were used for it, but
the Cancer grew steadily worse, until itseemed
that I was doomed to follow the others of the
family. I took Swift's Specific, which, from
the first day, forced out the poison and con
tinued Its use until I had taken several bottles,
when I found myself welL 1 know that S. S. S.
cured me. Mrs. S. M. Idol.

To cure Mrs. Thomas Hatton, and she suffered
on for 13 years. The aches and pains which
she experienced in almost every part of her
body was simply terrible. Those sharp, cutting
pains across the small of her back and lower
part of her body was almost unbearable. In
fact she suffered with all those diseases and
conditions peculiar to women. For three
months her mind was unbalanced, and for
months she was confined to her bed. She be
came very weak and emaciated, so that she
only weighed 98 pounds. No one expected her
to live, much less get entirely cured. After
receiving three months' treatment with the
physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Insti
tute, 323 Penn avenue, who make a specialty of
her disease, she says:
"I bever want any one to suffer as I have for
the past 13 years. The condition of my case
was mnch worse than has been described, and
I am only too glad to testify to my complete
cure by the doctors of the Catarrh and Dys

I Would Have Been Dead,
Said Mr. Henry Robertson, "had I kept on in
the way I was going. I had chronic bronchitis
and a weakness of my left lung that was fast
approaching consumption. I coughed and had
great pressure and tightness across my lungs,
with pain about my shoulder blades. My ap
petite was very poor, and I had sour belching
of gas from mystomachallthetlme. I doctored
with the best doctors I could hear of, bnt was
fast getting worse. My kidneys also became
diseased. I had pain across my back, bloating
of the bowels, and the water was highly col
ored with a red, brick dnst sediment. I became
melancholy and discouraged and thought I
could not live. Flnallylbegan treatment with
the physicians of the Polypathic Medical and
Surgical Institute, who are specialists for
chronic diseases, and although confined to the
bed when I commenced treatment, and am 66
fears old, my improvement was very rapid, and
feel that these physicians have saved my life.
I am getting stronger every day and feel almost
like a young man again.

Effects of Dr. Smith's
AT 602 PENN AVENUE.
The Rev.Thomas T. Evans, late pastor-elect ot
the First Eaptist Church at Banksville, Pa., has
been a confirmed invalid since 1881. For tho -past
eight years he has been afflicted with; s
rheumatism more or less of the time, and for
the past three years his sufferings have boeu so
terrible that life had become a burden to him.
He complained of tearing, aching pains aQ. .
through his body. His stomach became tho
seat of horrible neuralgic pains, which kx
tended through to his back and radiated from
there to his shoulder blades. The pain camo (
on in paroxysms, which increased In violence)
until his body was bent double. The pain was
usually aggravated after eating; and would
continue nnabated until every particle of food
passed out of his stomach. As soon as tho
stomach became empty he complained of a
faint, all-gone feeling in it His bowels
were obstinately constipated, and wero
only moved by taking cathartics. He suffered
from an aching, tearing pain in the small of
the back, palpitation of the heart and sharp
stitching pain in his side. Mr. Evans had suf-
feredso long without finding relief that ho
had eiren up all hopes ot recovery, and when,
wa consider his terrible condition we do noS
wonder that he had little if any faith that Dr.
Smith would benefit his condition. Remem
ber that he had suffered eight years with rheu
matism. which was'associated with dyspepsia,
constipation and neuralgia of the stomach in
an aggravated form. Spasms of pain in bis
stomach and bowels would seize him and bend
his body double. These horrible pains would
continue without intermission until his body
was bathed in profuse perspiration and until hei
would faint from exhaustion. In this pitiable)
condition be applied to Dr. Smith, the mag
netic physician, at No. 502 Penn ave. After
three magnetic treatments in connection with
a little medicine, Mr. Evans could eat without
distress, sleep well, and go about from day to
day with never a sense of weariness or dis
tress. Rev. Mr. Evans stated in Dr. Smith's
office last Saturday that when be applied to
Dr. Smith that language was inadequate to ex
press the horrible tortnre he was undergoing.
He says that Dr. Smith's treatment gave him
the first relief from suffering that he has had
during his entire illness. Mr. Evans mayba
