Office of Pitisbtjeq Dispatch.
Fktday. Juno 7. ISSa. (
Reports from fruit and vegetable stalls in
dicated an unexpectedly quiet trade for the
week. Horae-gro vrn strawberries are scarce,
having been kept back by beavy rains and
cool weather. Maryland berries were de
tained beyond the floods, and those which
finally did come were in rather bad shape.
Tomatoes are scarce and higher. Home
grown icas are In good supply ;at lower figures
than ruled a week ago. Large quantities of
Eastern and Southern fruit and vegetables that
bare been due at this market since Friday last
were ordered by shippers to other markets,
and the expected glut here has not material
ized, bald a leading Liberty street produce
commission merciiaut: "We w ere nodded that
trains loaded with stuff were on the way
detained by washouts, but so far receipts
have been very light, iu fact, not sufficient for
wants of trade." Reports from dealers in fish
show supply below demand for the w eek. Rains
and floods have been so general over the coun
try that the full fish supply has been impossi
ble to obtain. Said one of our leading dealers
in this line: "We have been able to satisfy our
customers, but some kinds of fish we have not
offered on the stalls, reserving them for fancy
restaurants which must have them."
The market for butter, egcs and poultry has
improved since last week. Poultry has been in
short supply, llorysts report unusual quiet
ness for the season, and attribute it to the gen
eral disposition to ignore parties and fetes in
the presence of the appallinc calamity which
has fallen on the Conemaugh Valley. Magna
Charta roses, lilies of thev valley, De Watulles
and daffodils have been dropped out from the
flower list, aad moss roses and forget-me-nots
have made their first appearance this week.
Following are the latest retail prices of Sat
urday's market basket materials as furnished
by leading dealers:

Continental Iron Blarket.
The course of business In the continental iron
markets has been greatly changed bv the col
liers' strike in Germany. The German market
is wholly disorganized. The apprehension of
a strike extending through all the industries of
the country weighs heavily upon trade Buy
ers now hold aloof, while sellers show extreme
reluctance to enter into fresh engagements.
For want of coal a considerable number 'of
blast furnaces bave been damped down, and
most of the large finished iron and steel works
are on short time The certainty of a great
advance in the cost of fuel, rendering neces
sary another considerable advance in the prices
of iron. Is contemplated nith dismay. The
foreign trade mult now continue to dwindle
away till some similar convulsion takes place
in England and Belgium to restore the balance.

A PROSPECTIVE LUMBER BOOM.

CLOSE MARGINS ON CITI REALT1.
The item which appeared in this depart
ment of The Dispatch yesterday, stating
in cflect that a mortgage for a large amount
of home money had been placed on Penn
avenue property at 4 per cent, attracted
the attention of capitalists to an unusual
degree, and greatly increased their respect
for real estate as a safe and profitable invest
ment. The signs are good for a boom in the lumber
trade. Said a local dealer yesterday: "The
lumber business has been dull for sometime,
with prices tending downward, but I look for a
chango within the next 20 or 3Q days. The loss
of lnmberbythe flood in the Susquehanna
Valley was immense. 1 have seen it computed
at 10,000,000. This is unparalleled. Besides,
thousands of houses were destroyed and must
be rebuilt. This great loss cannot fail to make
a buoyant market and advance prices. This
will check, to some extent, building operations
in and about Pittsburg, as many will prefer to
wait another year rather than go above their
A Southslde heater named Gardner who got
out of a job almost six months ago, went to
Houston. Tex., and worked in the only iron mill
there He returned to this city a few days ago
in consequence of the mill closing for repairs.
He will return to Houston as soon as he can
make the necessary arrangements, and will
take his family with him. During his six
months' stay there bis wages amounted to
1,300, which was a great deal more than he
could have made here in the same time. He is
delighted with the conntry, and thinks, be will
locate there permanently.
Illinois is fast becoming one of the principal
competitors of Pennsylvania in the coal trade.
It is reported from Danville, that State, that
the Consolidated Coal Company of St. Louis
has just opened up the most extensive strip
bank west of the anthracite regions, in what is
known as the Missionary tract. The field is
near the junction of the Salt Fork and Middle
Fork of the Vermilion river, and contains 600
acres of land. A horizontal six-foot vein of
coal, covered with only 14 feet of ligbtsoils, ex
tends throughout the entire track. Wallace &
Wright, of Lafayette, Ind., have taken the con
tract of removing this dirt, and have placed
three steam shovels at work. The capacity of
the plant will be 1,000 tons a dav, and with this
output, counting 300 working days in a year, it
will take 16 years to exhaust the field, it being
estimated that there is at least 8,000 tons ot
coal in an acre of ground.
Real estate has suffered less from the busi
ness depression caused by the flood than any
other local interest. Reports show there is
very little abatement of interest in lands and
houses. A number of deals were consummated
yesterday which are noted elsewhere in this
department of The Dispatch. Twenty-nine
mortgages were placed on record aggregating
nearly 75,000. The largest was for 10,000, the
next largest for 8,000 and the next lor 7.000.
This was all borne money. Black A Baird
placed one of 15,000 on Penn avenue at 5 per
cent for three years, being about 85 per cent ot
the assessed value of the property. This Is a
close margin and shows great confidence In the
stability of values. Kelly fc Rogers placed a
mortgage on East End property at 6 per cent
The dispensing of soda water Is carried on to
a large extent in Plttsbure. In fact, it is one
of the principal industries incident to the sum
mer season. The outlay is small and the profits
large. Two or three of the most popular es
tablishments average about 500 glasses a day.
Snrceon General Hammond, however, would
wipe it otft of existence. Be says neither soda
nor ice water should lie drank at all, as the con
sequences are almost invariably bad. No liquid
with a temperature below 60 Farenheit, he in
sists, ought to be taken intothemouth. As the
thirsty season Is here these words of caution
should be borne in mind, coming as they do
from one of the most eminent physicians in
the world. But however wise and timely this
advice may be, it is not likely that it will lessen
either the supply or the demand. Allegheny
river water la a permanent obstacle to reform
in this direction.
The wire nail seems to be slowly winning its
way to popularity. Wheeling builders whose
business requires the use of large quantities of
nails, said: "We have not begun using the
wire nail yet, but it is certainly preferable to
the cut nail, and is the coming nail. All the
doors and sash we get are made with wire nails,
and they are becoming immensely popular.
Take a wire nail and throw it down there and
it will lie in the rain for a week and it won't
rust. An iron nail will rust if out In the rain
one night. Wire nails do not split the wood
like iron nails,and they are surely better. They
appear to be nsed more in the West than here
This nail is the cause ot the depression in the
cut-nail industry, and our mills will have to
turn their attention to them sooner or later."

Local Money Matters Recovering, Bat Im

Local financiers who were spoken to yester
day reported that business was picking up a
little but was still below the average. The
mall service was better and a big batch of
checks arrived from the East. Improvement
will be slow, as hundreds who lost relatives or
friends at Johnstown will not soon be In condi
tion to engage with alacrity in ordinary pur
suits. Under all the circumstances, the Clear

MOVEMENTS IH OIL
Something Must be Done to Stimulate Basi
nets Call for a Conference.
The oil market yesterday was the best of the
week in point of activity, if not of strength.
It opened at 82, at which 1,000 "barrels were
sold. Liberal trading soon put the price up to
82. A weaker feeling then set in, and the
price hung between 82 and 83 the rest of tho
day, closing at 82JJ. The ticker service was in
good order. Trading was spasmodic and lim
ited, the most of it being done in the afternoon.
"The market will change one way or the other
in the next few weeks,'' remarked an experi
enced broker. "Trade is so dull that we must
have a new deal of some kind or quit the busi
ness. I look for lower prices. The clearings
were 786.000 barrels.
The conferences of oil exchanges will meet
I at Bradford on Wednesday, June 12, to adopt
measures loosing to a reorganization oi uio
conference upon the basis of actual business
done by each exchange as shown by its daily
clearings, to receive and act upon suggestions
looking to a broadening of the trade in oil, and
to consider and act upon tbe revision of the
rules. The animus of this movement, it was
suggested, was probably to get the scheme for
trading in futurei again before the exchanges
in some shape as to remove objections and in
sure its passage.

Adverse Ioflnencea Depress tbe Stock
Market Nearly Everything Strong
at the Opcnlntt bnt Lower nt tbe
Close Bonds Feverish.
New York, June 7. The stock market was
somewhat less active to-day, but tbe strong
tone of yesterday was continued only in the
forenoon, when tbe adverse influences prevail
ing became most powerful iu the course of
prices and the upward moement was checked,
a reaction following. Tho opening was strong
and active but the business done was not so
well distributed as during the past few days
and the stocks of the-regular list outside of
the Grangers. Pacific stocks and New England
were dull and without much feature. Realiza
tions again became heavy. The annual report
of tbe Northwestern was swallowed uointbe
bearish fecline caused by the great flro at
Beittle and heavy engagements pfpold for ex
port bv to-roorrow' steimera. Tbero was
mirked strength in Wheeling and Lake Erie.
New England. Union .Pacific and Oregon Snort
Line at tbe opening, but tho trusts were
rather heavy to weak on the decision ot tho
Missouri State Secretary that the new law
against trusts would be rigidly enforced.
The Pacific stoofcs and Short Line were
neipeu oy tno prospects or an amicable settle
ment of tho Oregon Navieitlon lease and other
matters between the" Union and Northern
Pacifies. ThS selling begata immediately, how
ever, and before the end of the first hour
prices were on tbebarlc track and most or the
list were brought belo-w their ppenlng figures,
and Tennessee Coal, both common an pre
ferred, with Oregon Short Line were the only
ones which retained any fair proportion of
their advances. There was a spurt in Lake
Shore after 12 o'clock, bnt this ras the only up
ward movement durln? the atternonn ?inrt ft
failed to have any effect upon the rest of tho
list. The pressure against the trusts, however,
became more pronounced alter that
time, and. lead retired, 2 per cent.
Tho Grahgers followed, and St. Paul was
specially weak, but the low prices reached
brougnt in some buying from tbe shorts and In
vestors, and there was a better tone to the list
toward the close, which was quiet and fairly
steady generally at slight fractions better thin
the lowest of tho day. The great majority of
the active stocks to-night are fractionally
lower. Atchison and St. Paul are each down 1
per cent, but Tennessee 'Coal rose L the pre
ferred 2, and Delaware and Hudson i.
Railroad bonds were also less active, and, like
shares, were somewhat feverish and irregular,
although a strong tone was noticeable In most
of the issues traded in. The Kansas and Texas
bonds were again the most consplcnons strong
feature, but the declines at the close are quite
numerous. The sales of the day reached
$1,651,000, of which the Kansas and Texas 5s

Flro Docs. Dnmaeo to nn Alabama Town
and Unllrond Line.
Eutatt, Ala., June 7. News has just
reached us by wire from Xivingstone as fol
lows: A very destructive tire broke out here
'this morning abont 3.30 in the block west of
the artesian well district, destroying 16
houses. The origin of the ire is not yet
known. There is no insurance on the build
ing oc stock of goods. The south-bound
lightning expresr train on the Alabama
GreatSouthern, due here at 7 o'clock this
morning, met with n serions accident about
one and a half miles north of Carthage,
Ala., on a trestle known as tbe Carthage
gravel pit trestle.
The trestle was on fire and before the
engineer discovered it and conld stop his
train, he ran into it. The fireman jumped
from 'he engine. Seventy feet of the trestle
was consumed; also the engine, mail car
and baggage car. Host of tbe mail was
saved. No one was hurt.
ALL QUIET AT SAMOA.
There Have Been no Fresh Disturbances on
tbe Troubled Island.
Sydhet, N. S. "W., June 7. The steamer
Lubeck has arrived here from Apia, Samoa,
with advices to May 28. Everything was
quiet in Samoa. A trnce was maintained
between the contending natives, owing to
reDorts that additional German men-of-war
were on their way to Apia. JIataafa had
collected his men, and it was thought 3,000
of his men would be assembled in one camp
shortly. Tamasese is also in camp.
All men-of-war have left Apia. The
British man-of-war Bapid had sailed for the
Fiji islands. The American steamer Nipsip,
convoyed by the steamer Alert, had gone to
Tutnila for coal, and from there they were
to proceed for Auckland.

JOHNSTOWN'S HORROR ,6V8
described and illustrated by staff correipond-
enisana arusis m UHnorrovrs dispatch.
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 nsed for it, but
the Cancer grew steadily worse, until Itseemed
that I was doomed to follow tbe others of the
family. I took Swift's Specific which, from
the first day, forced out tbe poison and con
tinud its use until I nad taken several bottles,
when I found myself well. 1 know that S.S.S.
enred me. Mrs. S. M. Idol.
