HEAVY CATTLE AND HOGS GO SLOW.
Country Trodnce of Erery Kind Promises
to be Abundant
A PEDDLER'S YIEW OF THE SITUATION
Ornci of Pittsbubo Dispatch,
Thursday. July II, 18S8L J
The run of heavy cattle this week was ex
ceptionally large, and in this grade markets
were slow. The supply of light, smooth
butcher stock was below the average, and
prices advanced 1020c per 100 pounds.
The salvation of markets this week was the
light run, which was little above half that of
last week. The same amount of stock as last
week would have knocked the bottom out of
It has been a marked characteristic of live
stock trade all this season that heavy cattle and
hogs have moved slowly, ana markets were
uniformly in favor of buyers. Licht, smooth
hogs were active to-day at 4 804 90. while
heavy weights were slow at 40 to 50c below this
As will be seen by our quotations, receipts of
sheep are considerably larger than for some
weeks past. Notwithstanding liberal receipts,
prices of last 'n eek were more than maintained.
Choice wethers brought tho best price of the
season, and there has been an advance of 10 to
15c over last week's prices on all grades.
Following is report of the week's transactions

An interview to-day with a peddler, whose
beat for a dozen or more years has covered the
Panhandle region about New Cumberland, de
veloped some facts concerning country produce
which will no doubt be of interest to readers of
The Dispatch. Said he: "The extra fine
pasturage of this season has resulted In a a
superabundance of country butter. My reg
ular customers are offering me fully one-third
more butter than usual, and I am forced to re
fuse any amount that is offered. Eggs, too, are
unusually plenty for this season of the ear,
and, in fact, everything I am accustomed to
handle is plenty, too plenty. The outlook for
vegetables, particularly potatoes, was never
better. The crop of apples in this section will
not be quite up to last year, but will he above
the averace. Last year's crop was one of the
largest on record. As an illustration of the
condition of pasturage this season, 1 have a lot
of five acres, near Clinton, where I have pas
tured four horses all season, and I expect to get
one ton of bay to the acre irom this lot beside.
Last year there was not enough pasture on the
came lot for two horses more than half the
time. Last season there was not a meadow in
the neighborhood of Clinton that yielded more
hay to the acre than I will get from mv lot
after feeding four horses all summer.
The only cron that is not promising on my
beat is corn. In the early spring there was such
constant wet weather that corn bad a long
struggle to get a fair start. But there is still
time enough to recover lost ground if the
weather prophet will only be propitious. While
nature will hardly be as prolific as she was last
year, she promises to go beyond her average in
my section, and the present outlook is for an
abundance ot everything in the line of fruit
and vegetables in the region from here to New
Cumberland. A second season of great abund
ance in all garden and farm products, is now an
assured fact in the region for 100 miles west
and south of Pittsburg.

Intensified Weakness In the Wheat Pit
Good Weather and Government Crop
Report Cnnse Valnes Co Let
Go All Alone the Line.
Chicago The weakness In wheat which set
in yesterday was followed with a further ma
terial shrinkage to-day, and a heavy, weak
feeling existed most of the session. From the
highest point reached yesterday prices de
clined 6c for July. 4c for Atigust and 3c
for December, closing 5c lower for July, 2o
lower for August and lo lower for December
than closing figures of yesterday. The short
interest, assisted by the bear element; took
courage at the weakness and sold freely. They
hammered the market by selling large lots, and
this brought out large lines of long wheat
which had been bought at the higher prices.
They were encouraged in their action by the
unfavorable tenor of European market advices,
improved weather here, and the prospects of a
freer movement of wheat. The weather was
fine in the West, with light rains reported in
the Northwest and the South. Samples of some
2S carloads of new winter wheat were shown, of
which the wheat is here and will be shown in
the inspection blank tc-morrow. Nearly all of
tho new wheat was of good quality And in
spected No. 2 red, and this was made the most
Important weakening feature on the market.
It was reported that a Chicago firm had bought
150 cars at Indianapolis to arrive here next
Operators scarcely knew whether to accept
the Government crop report as a weakening or
strengthening feature. It is calculated
that the yield from percentages' ot con
dition furnished would be from 475,
000,000 to 493.000,000 bushels, or a reduc
tion of about 30,000,000 bushels as compared
with the June report. The market no doubt
had been bulled on the expectation of a still
larger reduction in the anticipated yield than
the figures represent, and this may have In
duced some selling.
Corn ruled moderately active, with the feel
ing easier. There was only a moderate local
demand, most of the purchasing being done by
a prominent local trader, whose operations had
a sustaining influence early in the day. As the
session advanced, however, offerings became
quite liberal, considerable long property being
sold, and the market ruled easier, due largely to
the weaker tone ot wheat. The market opened
at yesterday's closing quotations, was steady
for a time, then declined c, became quite ac
tive, closing a lower than yesterday.
Oats 'were falrlv active, but weaker, and
prices declined iyic The declines were
chiefly attributable to fine weather for harvest
ing and good crop reports.
Trading was moderately active in the market
for mess pork, and the feeling was compara
tively steady. Early prices ruled 57c lower.
Later the market was steadier and prices im
proved 5g7Kc and closed quiet.
An easier teeling prevailed in the market for
lard. Prices ruled 25c lower, and the mar
ket closed quiet at medium figures.
Rather less doing in short rib sides and the
feeling easier. Prices declined 25c early in
the day, but rallied again and closed steady at
about medium figures.

SHORTEST MEETING ON EEC0RD.
Electricity to Supply Oakland and Squirrel
Hill With Bapld Transit
MT. WASHINGTON COMING TO THE FE0NT
One of the largest transactions in local
stocks of recent date has just been closed up.
J. B. Ford sold to C. B. McLain, President
of the Masonic Bank, 1,000 shares of Pitts
burg Plate Glass 'stock at (150 per share,
cash, a check for $150,000 being handed over
and delivered for the certificates.
More of it can be had at the same price.
This Is 37 points below Exchange quotations
yesterday, and is probably the fair value of t$e
The proposition to divide the Exchange sur
plus of 59,000 pro rata among the members was
nipped In the bud in the most summary manner
yesterday. President Arter called the meeting
to order and stated the question. It was imme
diately moved and seconded that the proposi
tion be laid on the table. This was carried
with only three votes In the negative. This was
instantly followed by a motion to adjourn,
which was carried by the same vote. '
The meeting was over in less than two min
utes o quickly, indeed, that it caused one to
wonder that if so soon done for what it was
begun for. The brevityof the meeting was like
the effort of the Western orator some years ago.
He said: "Mr. President, I rise to sit down."
He had forgotten what be wanted to say. The
surplus, therefore, remains In the treasury, to
be used as exigencies may require.
It was whispered about yesterday that the
much-talked-of "loup" which is to give Oak
land the benefit of rapid transit will be oper
ated by electricity and not by cable It is
understood that the contract for building it
has been let. It was farther whispered that
the "loup" will form a connecting link between
the Fifth avenue cable road and the proposed
electric road to Squirrel Hill, and will start
from about the corner of Sylvan avenue and
Boquet street and run out Into the Twenty
third ward, passing through the proposed
Schenley Park, and continuing along Green
This will open up one of the largest tracts of
unimproved land within the corporate limits
of Pittsburg, and greatly facilitate the settle
ment of a district that is unrivaled in Its at
tractions and advantages for homes for the
Mount Washington and Allentown are set
tling up very fast. A large number of resi
dences are going up, and a score or two have
lately been completed and occupied. They
range in cost from 51,500 to 53,000. Good lots
within ten minutes of Smithfleld street are
offered as low as 5250. on easy payments. The
Allentown Electric Railroad Company is build
ing a branch to take in the Mount. The horse
car line has designs on the same territory.
The competition between them for right of way
is quite animated. The electric road people
will doubtless secure the plum. The new in
cline of the Castle Shannon Railroad will be
finished in 60 days. This will open another
avenue to the Mount and increase its desir
ability as a place of residence
Among its many attractions are pure air and
water, cleanliness and magnificent views of a
largo area of the surrounding country. On
one side the observer has a panoramic pros
pect of the entire valley in which Pittsburg is
situated; on the other his eye ranges over a
wide extent of green fields and tree-crowned
uplands, finally resting on the misty mountain
tops in Washington county. There are few
places so convenient to Pittsburg that possess
equal inducements to men of moderate means.
The sale of 2,000 tons of Bessemer Dig at 515 75
Is conclusive evidence there has beennoadvance
in prices in this market. Concerning the situa
tion and prospect, an iron broker said 'yester
day: "Prices, although without perceptible
change, are firmer than they were a week ago.
The practical settlement of the wage question
has bad a good effect. The demand for all de
scriptions of Iron is good, and is steadily in
creasing. Some think there will be no change
in prices, but I look for an advance. Stocks
are small. I think nearly all the mills will
soon complete repairs and start up with orders
enough to keep them running all through the
fall and winter."
He thought the result of the contest at Jones
& Laughlins' would settle the dispute over the
steel scale. Whatever was agreed upon there
would probably be accepted by the other firms.
While of the opinion that the 10 per cent ad
vance demanded by the men was unfair, as It
was easief to roll steel than iron, be was of the
opinion tne nrm would nnauy yield, as they
had some big orders that wouldn't keep.
" " a
Those who think that land is "dirt cheap" in
the far West are badly mistaken. A gentle
man told roe yesterday that a lot situated next
to a hotel in Manilou, Col., and having a front
age of 150 feet, recently sold for 55,000, or some
thing over 530 a foot Purchasers can do better
than this In some parts of Pittsburg.

The stock market was bead over heels in the
soup yesterday. La Noria and Philadelphia
Gas were the only securities that showed any
animation, and they were handled very spar
ingly. The total sales ot both were 225 shares.
Both were fractionally weaker, bur it was
noticeable that every attempt to depress La
Noria below a certain point was quickly met
by a counter movement. Weakness extended
to nearly everything on the list. This was
shown in the feeling rather more than In the

Petroleum Distressingly Doll, but the Bancs
Yesterday was another uneventful day at the

when the clearings were 262,000 barrels, and the
range of prices was somewhat higher.
The opening price was 92. the highest 92,
the lowest 92, and the close 92 Several of the
operators expressed confidence in the success
of the new deal, and thought it would prove a
success if given a fairtriaL Others, however,
spoke in favor of its repeal.
One thing can be said without fear of con

satisfactory to either side; nor will it be so long
as the outside interest holds back. How to

The indications for the development of a
large oil field in West Virginia are very en
couraging. Several wealthy Pennsylvanians
and West Virginians have leased several thou
sands of acres of oil land on Buffalo creek, W.
Va. Very little territory that is considered
good remains unleased in that region, and it Is
expected that operations will soon commence
to develop It.

A BAD BREAK.
The Lead Trust Gives War nnd Give Stocks
a Slliht Shock A Good Rallr at the
Close Rumors of a Glsjantlc
New Yore, July It The stock market was
quiet to-day, but decidedly strong almost
throuebout, and except the bad break in the
Lead Trust there was no setback of importance;
everything traded in closing materially higher
than last evening. The London prices this,
morning were again materially higher than our
figures of last evening, and the advices from
that center led to tbelmpression that there was
some news afloat In London of a favorable na
ture in regard to the pending railroad nego
tiations. There was some buying for foreign
account, and other outside Interests were pur
chasers during the day, Chicago being espe
There were rumors again of a gigantic rail
road trust to be formed in the West and it took
a somewhat more plausible form than the
previous stories in that connection, and before
the opening of the market induced a more bull
ish feeling than had obtained yesterday, which
resulted in a decidedly strong opening with an
active business. The opening gains extended
to J per cent and in the first half hour's trad
ing further gains of from Yto. per cent were
scored in tho general .list, while Sugar Trust
and the Chesapeake and Ohio stocks moved up
over 1 per cent each. At the high figures there
was a disposition manifested amongthesmaller
traders to take profits, and as the demand fell
away prices receded, but afterward moved up
, Toward noon the market received a shaking
up from the sudden activity and rapid decline
in National Lead Trust, which responded to
the stories of a further capitalization of the
trust, and it fell away over 2 per cent, while the
stock changed bands in large blocks. The ru
mors were promptly contradicted, however, and
the slump was soon over, the stock rallying over
1 per cent. In the meantime the advices from
the West and the meeting of the trunk officials
were such as to again stimulate the bullish
feeling, and on the rebound the stocks of the
regular list were carried un to the highest
point of the day. The news that something was
really being done to bring the Burlington and
Northern to terms was most powerful in bring
ing about this result.
There were the usual realizations in the last
hour, and the market saggedaway slightly from
the best prices, but there was no weakness any
where in the list, and the close, while quiet to
dull, was still firm to strong at but a shade un
der the highest figures of the day. As was to
be expected, the Grangers were the leaders in
the last rise, but were joined by Lake Shore

The Mavor of Cincinnati has directed tha

common labor on Sunday by arresting all gro
cers, tobacconists, ice cream and soda water

Some days ago the State officials of New

tion to raise the quarantine against pleuro
pneumonia. To this tbe Secretary has made a
vigorous protest, appealing to the State officials

over tbe Northwestern road. The local con
stables were suspicious that it was to be un
loaded, and so swore out a warrant and seized
the car in the face of tbe waybill, which
showed that It was destined for another State.
