The market at these yards mm reported
satisfactory to both buyers -jnd sellers.
There was seme complaint from country
drovers that the P. & W. 1 tail rear", was slow in
transportation of stock.
It will be seen that receipts wore 145 head
less than last week. With tue falling off of
receipts there came no ix icreascd activity of
markets. Supply was arjply efficient for
demand, but market was. firm at last week's
prices for all desirab'.e grades. Best heavy

A cor, pie of loails of Indian cattle, weighing

The holders did not realize expectations of
pro fits, hut came out ahead, at prices ranging

Chicago last week repurts that prices there
VA?re low enough up to Friday to furnish a fair
Aiargin of profit. Those who bought their

Offerings were unusually heavy. Demand
was good, bnt not good enough to absorb the
extra supplies. Reports from Eastern markets
were not very faorable. The result of this
combination of depressing influences was that
prices dropped from 25 to 50c per cwt. The
best heavy Western wethers sold at $4 50 to

Whom Id Europe.
The current number of a Minneapolis jour
nal gives the following facts from its London
correspondent concerning the whea t situation
in Europe- In France, England, and in fact all
western Europe, weather has been most pro
pitious ot late, and the wheat cror. will be gath
ercdat least two weeks ahead of its average
time. The crop is not only ahead of time, but
is unusually large In eastern Europe reports
are much less favorable. Tje winter wheat
crop of Russia will be little nyjre than half the
average neld. The estimate ,s 54,000,000 bushels
against 94 000.000 bushels la jt year. In ISM and
lbi7 the annual yield of wi nter wheat in Russia
wis in rouml numbers 175.000,000, an amount
alrao-.t quadruple the Jiinouut estimated for
this year. The spring wheat crop of Russia

152,000.000 last J ear. As an offset to the short

lnitswcekh review of the British grain trade,
sajs: English wheat is firm. White is 6d
higher. The sales of English wheat during the
past week were 38.319 quarters at 29s 4d, against
il,975 quarters at 32s during the corresponding
week last year. The prices of foreign wheats
favor sellers owing to diminished deliveries of
spring. Corn is strong at 3d advance. Grind
ing barley is 3d cheaper. Oats are 8d dearer.
At to-day's market English wheat advanced 61.
Foreign whiles were a fraction better. The
prices of fiour and corn were in sellers' favor.
Rye was G1 dearer.

Chicago. Trading in wheat was only
riioderate to-day, and at times business lapsed
Into a positively dull state. The feeling through
out was nervous and unsettled. Local flatting
was narrow, with scalpers generally working
the bull side for a turn. The decrease in the
risible supply proved about as expected, though
some traders looked for a larger decrease.
Shipments of Indian wheat last week were a
little larger than for the week before, though
they are not heavy as compared with the ship
ments for the corresponding period a year.
Advices from the Northwest were quite bear
ish, though they emanated mostly from rail
road sources They show the wheat crop of
Minnesota and Dakota to be generally in ex
cellent condition, estimates on the yield being
from an average crop to considerable better
than an average. Small grains in Nebraska
were said to be mostly cut. In the winterwheat
districts the weather continues rainy, enough
so, at least, to seriously retard a free move
ment of the new crop.
All futures bevond July opened fractionally
nnder Saturday's latest bids, fluctuated nar
rowly for a time, declined slightly, and during
the last hour, under an active demand from the
shorts advanced sharply 1c. closing
Jc higher for tlje day.
A firmer feeling was developed in corn. The
volume of business was not heavy and trading
was somewhat restricted, owing to the moder
ate offerings The market opened a shade
higher than the closing prices of Saturday, was
firm and gradually advanced c became quiet,
receded a trifle and closed &io higher than
Oats were quiet and steady with no new
features to note.
Trading was moderately active in mess pork,
especially early in the day. Opening sales
were made at 5c advance, which was followed
by a further appreciation of 57c Later
prices receded 1012c Toward the close the
market was steadier, but closed quiet.
Lard was stronger and ruled about 2c
Earlier the feeling in short ribs was firmer
and prices rallied 2K5cvith moderate trad
ing. Later the market was not quite so strong,
and outside figures were not supported.
The leading rutures ranged as iollows:

HOME M0NEI PLANTED IN MORTGAGES
A tip was given yesterday of a deal in
real estate involving nine acrcs.situated not
far from the corner of Franks town avenue
and Fifth avenue. The purchaser did not
pay cash for the ground, but traded a block
of houses in Allegheny City for it. It is val
ued at 850,000, and will be subdivided and put
on the market.
Petroleum made a spurt and touched the dol
lar line yesterday, closing at 93c, the best for
nearly four years This is encouraging to the
brokers, but they should not shout ugtil they
are out of the woods. The Standard wants
cheap oil for its refineries, and while the mar
ket under the pressure of bullish statistics
and scarcity of certificates may have tempora
rily slipped from its grasp, it will no doubt take
prompt action to Keep the price within the pre
This would be in strict keeping with the pre
vious policy of the octopus A departure from
its ancient custom would show a liberality
which would be as surprising as unexpected.
We shall see what we shall see.
It is stated as a significant fact that within
the last few days a good many orders for steel
rails have been placed in a quiet way. Agents
of Eastern mills have closed for 15,000 tons and
are In treaty on at least 30,000 tons more. The
present allotments are on a basis of 1,212,000
tons for the year. Up to July 1 963,553 tons had
been sold, and the subsequent business makes
a total to date of nearly if not quite 1,000,000
tons This places the market in an exceed
ingly strong position.
Forty-one mortgages were .filed for record
yesterday, indicating that this will be a good
week in that line of business The largest was
for 825.000. Seventeen were for 81,000 and up
to 86,40a A fair proportion of the nnmber was
for purchase money. All was home capital.
George Wilson, a prominent physician of
Cincinnati, was visiting friends m the East End
yesterday. In the afternoon he made a tour of
the city, after which he said: "I saw nothing
to cause apprehensions of an unusual amount
of sickness Your streets and alleys are in
good condition cleaner than ours. Your sew
erage is very good. I discovered nothing on
the surface to breed disease. I tested the water
and f onnd it reasonably pure. Still I think it
would be advisable to boil it before using for
drinking purposes This would lessen the lia
bility of children and old people to attacks of
dysentery and cholera morbus
"This is the first time I have been in Pitts
burg in ten years You have made wonderful
progress in that time. Your suburbs possess
greater natural beauty than ours, and are better
Holders of first-class bonds or dividend-paying
stocks can always find a good market for
them, but as a general thing it is more difficult
to buy than to sell. Thus on Saturday, the
blackboard at the Exchange was covered with

From the action of the governors of the
Bank of England on Friday, in refusing to ad
vance the rate of discount, it is plainly not
their intention to permit any drainage of
British bullion for French or South American

the foreigners who are in need of gold bars
will continue to seek tbem here. The cables

The Financial Situation Viewed From Two
Points of Ynntner.
The Clearing House report yesterday showed
the following totals: Exchanges 82,474,389 93;
balances $491,390 IS. As indicated above,
checking was good. In the loan department
there was a moderate movement at the usual
rates Depositing was good. Currency was
rather scarce, but it was not down to the fam
ine point. Money was reported in good sup
ply. Harvey Fisk fe Sons New York, say: "With
the small amount of excess reserve in the
banks how are we going to tide over the great
demand for currency now almost on us to
move the fall crop of wheat, cotton, corn and
other products as well as the increased needs
for Industrial purposes? It is our opinion, as
large dealers in Government bonds that 850,
000.000 to 8100.000,009 4s could be bought without
adancing the market price over 3 or 4 per
cent. We have always held that as long as the
Gorernmentcould purchase its 4s to save 2 per
cent for each and every year they had to rnn.
It was the best thing conld be done with its
surplus The 4s now have jut 13 years to run
to maturity: If outstanding until that time the
Government will have paid. In principal ana in
terest, 172, or 81,720 for each f 1,000 bond. A sav
ing of 2 per cent for each of the 15 years would
amount to 8360 on each 81,000 bond; thus if the
Government was compelled to pay by the
scarcity of bonds 186, or SLS60, for each 81,000
bond, there would be a saving to the people of
8360,000 in each 81,000,000 purchased; while the
scattering of the money into the channels of
trade and commerce would result in untold
good to the country. Nov, unless ve are very
much mistaken 111 our opinion, the Secretary
will bavo no trouble in supplylngall his present
wants at considerably less than 136. The Secre
tary of the Treasury is now offering to buy 4;s
at a price which nets the Government a saving
of less than IK per cent for each year 2V
years they still have to run and gets no bonds
worth talking about."
As an offset to this Secretary Windom was
recently quoted as saying that, there were no
apprehensions of a money stringency, and in
proof he pointed to the fact that; while the
Government stood ready to buy in its bonds,
holders refused to sell them. As they pay less
than 2 per cent, premium counted, this would
not be the case if money were really or pros

A SPDET IN OIL.
The Dollar Line Touched Best Cloalnn for
Nearly Four Years.
The oil market yesterday was bullish and ex
cited. For the first time In just four weeks it
touched the dollar line. Trading was quite
lively both East and West, Pittsburg giving
the cue. The market opened strong at 95,
where it hung for a few minutes and then
weakened to 9 the lowest price of the day.
Then an advance set in, which was not inter
rupted until it sold up to $1, at which price sev
eral small lots were unloaded. The market
then declined slowly the rest of the day, clos
ing at 93 with one exception the best for near
ly four years The highest in New York was
The short interest is very light, less than at
.any previous time since the Exchange was
opened five years ago. This is a strong factor
in sustaining the market. The best reasons
that can be given for the advance are bullish
statistics and scarcity of certificates
A New York telegram says: Petroleum was
stronger and prices moved higher than ever be
fore this year, August option selling up to 81
per barrel and spot oil reaching 98c The ad
vance was caused mainly by an attempt of
Wall street and Pittsburg operators to cover
their short accounts, but they had to climb
high to get any certificates and it is under
stood that the outstanding short interest re
mains as large as ever. Spot oil opened steady
at 94c, and started upward immediately after
the first sales, and before noon advanced to
98. The mirket then reacted and became

New York, July 22. The week on the Stock
Exchange opened with a dull and declining
market, though considerable irregularity and
f everishness marked the trading, and the final
changes for the day are generally fractional
and very irregular. The same influences
which made the market so weak on Saturday
prevailed at the opening, and first prices were
from to per cent lower than Saturday's
closing figures The traders and professionals
were still inclined to hammer the list, while
commission people were doing nothing, and
there were few London selling orders in the
market. Thero was some buying for Western
account, however, and it was noticed that
there was more inquiry in the loan crowd for
the Western stocks while in all the leading
stocks there was evidence of better support.
After the weak opening the market became
quite strong, though the movement was of
slight Importance -The improving tendency
was hampered by the weakness in the trusts,
in which several stop orders were uncovered,
the special cause ot the declino being tho de
cline in beet sugar in Europe. Sugar scored a
decline of 2 per cent in the first hour, and the
others lost fractional amounts The official
denial of Saturday's story of the sweeping
reduction in Missouri rates was received, and
turned over some of the traders to the long
side and brought in some outside buying or
ders, which lifted the general list to something
above first prices, Missouri Pacific leading.
The highest prices were generally reached
shortly after noon, when it was announced
that the Missouri Commissioners had ordered
a reduction in some rates and Missouri Pacific
quickly lost all the improvement ot the fore
noon, and the rest of the list, while subsiding
Into intense dullness, showed a sagging tend
ency. The traders aeain attaefcad th list
later, and toward delivery hour the downward I
movement uecame more pronounced. The
C C, C. ft St. L. stocks however, showed
marked strength, and advanced 2 per cent from
its lowest price In the last hour there was
less business, but prices rallied a little and the
close was dull but fairly steady at Irregular
changes of small fractions from the opening
prices Sugar Trust is down IJf, and Northern
Pacific which suffered from a rumored issue of
315,000,000 debenture bonds Vt per cent, while
Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and St. Louis
Railroad bonds showed no change from the
conditions which prevailed last week, though
there was some little more animation thju at
that time. The tone of the market was weak,
however, and tbo Hocking Valley Gs took the
lead in the decline. The 6s were most active,
and furnished 3104,000 out of the total day's
trading of 8966,100. and were very well held.

HE COUGHED DAY MD NIGHT.
Mr. James Brown, a well-known citizen ot
Allegheny county, formerly residing in Glen
wood, but who has for the past 11 years lived
in Hampton township, has passed through an
eventful experience. His disease, although
not unlike that of many others assumed cer
tain conditions that gave him great alarm. He
had a continuous dropping of offensive matter
from his head into the throat, where it as
sumed a dry, tenacious condition, rendering it
almost impossible for him to raise it out.
There was a tickling sensation in his
throat, and, as the poisonous matter
extended down into the bronchial
tubes of his lungs, he coughed badly
both dav and night. He felt great tightness and
a stufTed-up condition in his throat and lungs
His breath became very short, and, as the dis
ease further preyed upon his system, he lost
flesh and became very weak. He had pain over
the eyes poor appetite, coated tongue and
belching of gas after eating. Although 61 years
of age, he received treatment from the physi
cians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute, at
323 Penn avenue, and he became entirely cured
of these diseases.
Ho adds: "I am glad to give my testimony
for publication, as I have been cured as above
stated, by the physicians of the Catarrh and
Dyspepsia Institute. "James Bbown."
