MEAT ON THE HOOF.
Features of Trade at the Heir's
Island Live Stock Yards.
CATTLE SAME AS LAST MONDAY.
Heariest Bun of Sheep of the Season, and
BOG SUPPLY AND DEMAND LIGHT
Office of Pittsbubq dispatch,"!
Monday. July 1, 1SS9. J
Buyers and sellers were somewhat diverse
in their views of values at the opening of
markets, and it was rather a difficult matter
to ascertain the trend of trade. The outcome
of the controversy was a betwixt and between
result. The final issue was a market that
raked little from that of last week.
Supply and demand raised scarcely any from
last Monday. The price of the best heavy
Western beeves ranged from H 756S4 85.
Medium weights, 1.200 to 1,400 pounds, 54 0
4 63, but it is doubtful U the latter figure was
obtained. Prime light weights, 900 to 1,100
pounds, 53 90S 4 15; common to fair, thin and
rough steers. S3 153 40. Country stock was in
light supph. and it was next to impossible to
obtain quotations based on actual sales.
Bulls and dry cows of a low grade sold at 2
to 3c; calves brought 4 to 5c per pound. A
Diamond Market butcher. ho buys at Uerr's
Island, reports that the range for 1,300 to 1.500
pound cattle, such as are wanted in this mar
ket, are bought at MOO to $4 5a Said he: "I
beard of nothing sold above the latter figures."
A few choice native calves were sold at a
fraction above 5c, and some were reported as
high as 6c. The first Texas call es of the season
were on hand and ranged from 3 to 4c per
pound. Receipts from Cbicaco: I. Zeigler, 100

Supply was unusually large, but for some un
accountable reason market was firm at an ad
vance over last week's prices of 2550c per cwt.
Some dealers report a scarcity of stock through
the country, and this was made tie basis of a
bull movement, which counted in favor of sel
lers. The following range of prices was estab
lished by actual sales: Prime Western and
native wethers, 54 25375. There were, how
ever, very few that brought the latter figure.
The outside figures lor prime, so far as could
be traced, was 54 60. Medium to good wethers
sold at $3 754: common to f iir, S3 25 50;
yearlings 54 25g5 25; spring lambs. 4Hfic

William Hulwecs, 113. Total. 1,651 head; last
week, LOSS; previous week, 1.117.
Receipts were light and demand was light.
Hot weather has effectually knocked out the
demand from butchers. The few hogs on the
market were slow or sale. The range of prices
was 54 25 to $4 75, the latter price being paid
for smooth, light bogs. Heavy-weights go slow
in the present condition of lard trade. Receipts
from Ohio Needy A Smith, 123 bead; J. Lang

owners, 17 bead: total. 146 head; last week, 162;

port markets for hog products unusually slow
for this season of the vcar and regard this as
one of the poorest markets of the country in
their line. The Chicago market has furnished
better margins for bog prodncts of late than
those of Pittsburg, and some of oar packers
here have been availing themselves of the ad
vantage there by disposing of goods at Chicago.

London, July L Tbe-Jfar Lane Expreu,
in its review of the British grain trade during
the past week, says: Hot and dry weather pre
vails, and is pushing wheat. Harvesting will
begin about July 29, Storms in the Nether
lauds and Northern France have destroyed
much corn. A fine harvest is being reaped in
Spain, from which country the first European
samples have come. The Algerian harvest is
satisfactory, and it is prophesied that there
will be a surplus for export of 500,000 quarters.
Over an average yield is promised in Northwest
Europe. In the Latin countries there will be a
full yield. The firmness of English wheat is
remarkable. Prices are so extremely low that
farmers have no fear of further depression re
sulting from retaining their gialn, no matter
what may be the probable American surplus in
August or the English deliveries in September.
The sales of English wheat during the week
were 34,5S5 quarters at 27s lid, against 34 000
quarters at 31s 4a during the corresponding
period last year. Foreign wheat has hardened

MARKETS BY WIBE.
A Batch ot Bad Crop News Booms the
"Wheat Market Price Higher All
Ronnd December Still the
Center of Attraction.
Chicago A large business was transacted
in wheat to-day In a speculative way, and the
feeling developed was very unsettled and
nervous. Fluctuations were frequent and cov
ered a wide range for July, with the other
futures not fluctuating quite so wildly. Prices
ruled higher all round. July was advanced
1J4C then declined ljfc under rather free offer,
ings by a prominent commission house, recov
ered Kc and closed He higher than Saturday.
August advanced He and closed z highsr.
September advanced lc and closed Jc higher.
December, which Is attracting more attention,
advanced c, declined lc, recovered andclosed
Jfc higher than Saturday.
The principal influences governing the mar
ket were tie reports of dry weather and un
favorable crop advices from the Northwest,
and the rather free inspection here. Advices
were received from various sources stating that
the crop outlook in Southern and Central
Dakota is very poor, and it has been Intimated
that the yield may fall short of last year.
A moderate speculate business was re
ported in corn, and the feeling developed was
comparatively firm, with the exception of a
short spell at the opening, when an easy tone
was apparent. The strengthening Influence
was due mainly to the active shipping demand,
cash lots selling at a premium over July. The
Slate agricultural report was also looked upon
as a bullish factor. The market openea at
Saturday's closing prices, fluctuated within c
range and closed c higher than Saturday.
In oats a better trade was noted and a firmer
feeling existed, especially In July, owing to
Mess pork was only moderately active. Early
the feeling was easier and prices receded 7
10c. Later prices rallied 57c and closed
A dull, weak feeling prevailed In the lard
market, due, chiefly, to the tree deliveries on
Julv contracts. Prices declined 2)j5c early
in the day, but during the latter part of the day
the decline was recovered.
Rather a firmer feeling was manifested In the
market for short rib sides, bnt trading was only
moderate. Prices ruled 25c higher abd the
market closed rather firm.

ganized about two years. Over 85 per cent of

trust. Its business is the manufacture of al
cohol and high wines, and the sale of the refuse
to cattle breeders for feeding purposes.
STOCKS STILL SLOW.
Investors Want to Know Something About
Dividends Before Pitching; In.
The Interest period is always unfavorable to
activity in stocks, investors being desirous of
ascertaining profits and prospects before mak
ing fresh ventures. This was the case at the
Stock Exchange yesterday, only four Issues
being traded in, and the sales amounting to
only 230 shares. Electric and Philadelphia Gas
were stronger. The other gassers and the
tractions about held their own. A membership
sold at S446, against $1,100 something more than
three years ago. This is a good reason why
members are taking steps to broaden the field
of operations. Keystone Bank stock reached
the par line, 20 shares of It selling at 60.
A broker remarked: "I expect a decided im
provement in the market as soon as the ques
tion of dividends and interest Is settled. This
will release a large amount ot money, some of
which will go into speculation. 1 think the
outlook is very encouraging." Bids, offers and

Lovrejr Level Established.
Business at the Oil Exchange yesterday was
the opposite of exciting, and the range of
prices was lower than on Saturday. Cash and
regular July options were dull and the quota
tions on them were practically the same as for
August. The latter opened with a steady feel
ing at 93, and gradually sold np Ji. which was
high water mark for the day. The market
hung around that figure nearly all the after
noon and closed weak at 92. lower than the
Trading was light, both East and West, and
news of any kind was scarce. The Increased
consumption of oil and steady decline of pro
duction are regarded as favorable to an ad

failed to enlist the co-operation of the outside

LEAD AND SUGAB.
These Trusts Monopolize the. Business In
That Close of Secnrillee Broken
Leave for the Holiday Small
Advances at the Close.
New Yore, Jnly L The stock market to
day was extremely dull., especially In railroad
stocxs, of which only St. Paul and Atchison
showed any animation whatever. The trusts
were fairly active, though lead and sugar
monopolized the interest in that class of secu
rities. The speculation, however, had all day
long rather a holiday aspect, and little is ex
pected for the remainder of the week, owing
to the holiday cutting the week in two. and
many brokers have gone away to stay tne
entire time There was a better tone to the
market from the opening and London was a
buyer, which gave much encouragement to the
advocates of higher figures. The purchases
for foreign account, bowever. were small, and
in a large market would bare attracted no at
tention. The fluctuations in the general list were
confined throughout to the smallest limits, and
outside of the stocks beiore mentioned there
was actually no feature at all in the usually ac
tive list. Atchison was remarkably weak in
the forenoon on tie rumors that the company
bad been compelled to borrow money for the
July Interest, and the old talk of a receiver
vi as beard in some quarters, which, while it
gained no credence served to give a drooping
tone to the stock. After the first honr, how
ever, the stock remained steady and became
much less active There was considerable
pressure also upon St. Paul in the forenoon,
but the effort met with no success, andlater in
the day the more hopeful aspect,ot the West
ern railroad situation sent that stock np frac
tionally above Its last Saturday's price.
In the trusts, lead was still the most active
but it developed some weakness after 12 o'clock
and retired slightly, the fluctuations in the
stock, bowever, were small and did not extend
over a range of 1 per cent dnring the day, while
the early loss was recovered, bugjr continued
its rise of last Tteek and in the first hour It ad
vanced rapidly, scoring a gain of nearly 4 per
cent, after which it remained almost stationary
until the last hour, when It again moved up
and closed at 123. Among the inactive shares
of the regular list, Ohio Southern showed
marked strength, and later Southern Pacific
moved up materially and finally scored a gain
of IK per cent. The market closed very dull
but firm to strong, and generally at advances of
small fractions over Saturday's figures.
Railroad bonds were quiet, but there was a
little more animation than nsual of late, which,
however, ivas entirely due to the Increased
trading in the Cbesaneake and Ohio 5s. which
nI contributed S37LOO0 to the day's total of $1,187,-

I am satisfied tiutt Cancer is nereditary in my

mother died of ft, 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 ic
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 it seemed
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-tinu-d
Its use until I bad taken several bottles,

Produce men generally report a fair trade,
considering that the week has but fairly
started. A leading commission man said to
day: "We have not bad as good a Monday for
a number of weeks." Raspberries are in good
demand. Very choice dewberries from Cin
cinnati are on the market at J8 for two-bushel
crates. Tomatoes are moving ont freely at
quotations. Potatoes are drifting downward
in price, but demand is good. The near ap
proach of the Fourth brings an active demand
for tropical fruits. Dealers have laid in a good
supply, having large faith in Pittsburg patriot
