Monday. Aucust 6, 1S89. J
There are few chances in lire stock mar
kets to report. The grade of cattle was
scarcely up to average. There was certain
ly a larger proportion of grade cattle than
for a few weeks past. Notwithstanding this
fact prices held up well, and on desirable
grades an advance was secured. The desirable
grades In this market aro smooth butchering
stock, weighing not much above 1,200 pounds.
Cattle receipts were lighter than usual owing
to the fact that no stock, was consigned to the
abattoir. Outside of this tho number on sale
was a fair average. Prices were higher In
Chicago than last week and drovers here de
manded 10 to 25c per cwt, more than they
asked last Monday. Buyers seemed unwilling
to pay the advance, and markets ruled dull at
the opening. Drovers, however, could not be
brought to recede from their position, and
when it was discovered that there would beno
concessions, markets became fairly active at
the advance. Sales were reported at the fol
lowing range, with markets steady: Prime
heavy western beeves weighing 1,500 to 1,600
pounds. M 854 'JO; medium weights, 1,200 to
X400 pounds, H 654 75; prime light weights,
SO) to 1.100 pounds. 54 004 15; common to fair

Fresh cows were slow at a ranee of J20 0040 00

according to weight, qualit) and age Bulls,
istags and dry cons were in light hupply ana

!4c per pound.

Supplies were large, but none too large Tor
demand. Prices were steady at last week's
range, though there was a decided effort on the
part of buyers to bring the drovers to the con-ces-ion
point. In some Instances the bear
movement succeeded, as there were fears on
the part of holders that the markets would not
absorb large supplies of stock. The best

) Latest advices from England and France, in-
dioate a good crop, which will soon be safely
garnered. Reports from Germany are not so
favorable, but a fair yield is assured. From
' Hungary. Roumania, Russia and Italy "latest
advices indicate that crops will be much below
average. Western Europe promises a good
good yield. Prospects darken as you go east
ward and are darkest on the extreme eastern
borders. In this country, reports from the
Northwest show an extra fine crop of wheat as
to quality, and volume up to last j ear. In this
section, the wheat crop tor 1889 is one of the
best on recora both as to quality and quantity.
It will be a difficult problem to engineer any
bull movement in breadstuff this season.

The Wheat Pit Lncklncjn Vim Trading
Terv Slow, But Futures Move Cp a
Fraction Com and Onta Life

CniCAOo The speculative market was
agnln decidedly lacking ,In snap to-day. local
Interests being of an indifferent sort with out
side orders as scarce as ever. The general
situation was in fact without a single new
or interesting feature. The temper of the pit
was undoubtedly bearish, and local operators
are pretty generally short on the market. The
statistical position of wheat, on the contrary,
was favorable to buyers if not positively bull
ish. Trading In futures was Inconsequential
throughout the session and most of it was in
December. That month fluctuated within ex
treme limits otjje and closed 3fc higher than
on Saturday. The good demand for cash
wheat at this point on ' shipping and export ac
count noted around the close of last week con
tinues, there being several moderate sized
round lots taken to-day. New No. 2 red again
sold at KGKc premium over August.
A moderate degree of speculative activity
was manifested in corn early, but as the session
advanced the pit becamo quiet and lifeless.
The market opened a trifle under Saturday's
closing prices, but was firm and advanced c
on buying by local shorts. The cooler weather
had a strengthening influence. The advance
brought out free offerings, one or two shippers
selling quite freely, and the market receded,
ruled firmer, and closed YJSMfi better than
Saturday. The visible showed a moderate de
crease and local stocks were reduced 190,635
bushels, making the quantity now In store
here 1,292,734 bushels, or 1.221,814 bushels small
er than the corresponding time last year.
A good business was done In oats, particu
larly early m tho session, when a weaker feeling
developed. Offerings were free, receipts being
large and the demand light. First sales were
at MKc decline. This brought in quite a
number of buyers, and abetter feeling devel
oped, and prices reacted KQJic. Later the
offerings decreased, but the market closed
easy at z decline from Saturday.
Trading In pork was only moderate. Offer
ings were not large, and the demand was active,
especially during the early part of the dar.
Prices ruled 1517e higher early, but the
market soon weakened, and prices receded 7
10c, and closed quiet. Shipping demand
A fair trade was reported is lard early. Local
shorts purchased moderate quantities, and,
the offerings being somewhat light, prices were
advanced 57Kc. Later the feeling was easier,
and pi ices nettled back again 2J5c, closing
A light trade was done in ribs. The feeling
was steadier earlier, and prices advanced 2
6c, with moderate business. Later the market
was easier, and prices settled back again, with
onlv light trading. "

A BIG BROKER TAIKS
Method of Trading on tlje New York
EFFECTS OF A LIBERAL POLICY,
The Adoption of Which in Pittsburg Would
Mako Easiness Lively.
HOW THET MANAQB THISgS IN LOUDON
Mr. JohnfR.; McKee, Jr., whohas just been
elected President of the Pittsburg Exchange,
needs no Introduction to the business men of
this city, and especially to that large and influ
ential class known as brokers and investors.
He is one of the brainiest members of the
institution of which he is now the head, is
thoroughly conversant with the methods lu
vogue in all the speculative markets, and is
active and enterprising to a degree rarely com
bined in the same individual.
Knowing that Mr. McKee had just returned
from New York the Mecca of every business
man in America where he bad been tr study
the workings of the metropolitan expanses
for the benefit of the home institution, I
sought and obtained an interview yith him
yesterday. He expressed himself as porougji
ly pleased delighted, as he put ix-l with the
methods of the younger of the two gpat specu
lative centers of the big city the Crnsolidated
Exchange the members of whim, for the
most part, are active, energetic poang men
who have graduated from the oldei institution,
which they deserted solely for thi reason that
its plan of procednre, in their oylnion, is too
exclusive too antiquated and oimbersome to
meet the necessities of this progressive age.
Tbey were not satisfied to woryundor a policy
which favors the rich and igntres tho middle
classes that gives peculiar adVantages to the
man who deals in blocks of thousands and
handicaps or ignores him whr is forced to re
strict his operations to hundreds and identi
fied themselves with a conreln founded upon
the broad principle of equal rghts to all and
exclusive privileges to nop. In substance,
Mr. McKee said: I
The Consolidated Kxchspge of New York
started with the direct opposition of the old
Stock Exchange. It had Viry few of the rail
road and other securities which are usually
dealt in, and, as a consejiece, members at
first had limited facilities Ar executing orders.
To remedy this disadvantage, a new method of
trading was adopted, by which the actuat de
livery of certificates tookblace every Monday
instead of dally, as in the ld exchange. This
enlarged the field of operations, as it gave a
week of open, or free, trading without the
necessity of delivery, affofiing investors a rea
sonable time in which t operate for a turn.
When delivery day arrived traders, as a gen
eral thing, are perfectly! satisfied to let the
brokers carry their deals another week in the
same manner, and the Irokers are willing to
accommodate each other by mutual loans to
tide over real or possible difficulties. This
gives a liveliness and, activity to business
which is always wanting where a stiff, narrow
and unaccommodating policy is pursued.
Now for the application. In New York a
new institution, established In the face of
strong opposition and with many predictions
of ultimate failure, is flourishing like a green
bay tree, and gives promise of soon rivaling, in
tho volume of business transacted, the old
Stock Exchange, which has resorted, and is
resorting, to every possible device to crush its
young and vigorous rival.
Bringing the matter home, tho Pittsburg Ex
change has large opertunities, under a similar
broad aud liberal policy to Increase its volume
of trade and influence almost indefinitely, for
we have a speculating and investing element lr
our population second In size, wealth and in
telligence to that of no other city of equal
numbers in the Union. Moreover, our In
vestors are not hampered by want of capital to
operate with, for money is, and likely will be
for a long time, abundant and cheap. To this
It may be added that the character of the
home securities is far superior to most of those
dealt n elsewhere.
In Boston, Philaelph1,ndBaltiBiar the
same system ha been, adopted as prevails in
the New York Consolidated Exchange, and
the result is admitted on all hands to be bene
ficial, alike to brokers and investors.
The system upon which business is carried on
in London differs as much froni New York 'as
.New York differs from Pittsburg. Settlement
occupies three days. One is called name day
that Is, with regard to stocks which have been
purchased outright and which have to be trans
ferred, the name of the buyer is handed to the
seller. Another day is termed carrying-over
day, on which rates of continuation are de
cided. The explanation of this is that a person
having bought, say, 1,000 shares ol any stock,
and not being prepared to take np and pay for
it, desires it to be carried forward to the next
settling day, arranges through bis broker to pay
what is technically called a "contango." This
contango) may be 4. 6 or Scents a share; and
it takes the place of the interest which the,
New Youc broker charges. In London,
brokers art not. as In New York, tied down to
a bard ani fast line with reference to com
missions. They are competitive, and make
terms to slit the case in hand. For specula
tive transactions they exact only one commis
sion for botn buying and selling, and the pur
chaser of 20 u-50 sbaresof stock gets as close a
quotation as tie man who buys and sells 1,000
or iu,ouo snan
London broSprs do all in their power to con
vince clients tkit the wolf and lamb tbeorvis
not much mordserlons than a standing joke.

MOVEMENTS IN OIL.
The Market Still Cllnslns Very Closely to
the Dollar Line.
The only animation in the oil market yester
day was shortly after the opening, when New
York and Oil City were buying. They soon
drew off, however, and the market was quiet
the rest of the day. The tactics pursued here
seemed to be to buy below and sell above the
But while the price did not go below a dollar
at any time during the day, those wanting to
unloadailed to find customers for anything
except small lots, and the conditions were too
bnllirh for those who would otherwise sell
shore The result was that trading was light.
Cash oil was Ji cent below the regular. Very

. New York. AngustR The stock market to
day seemed to have shaken off the lethargy
which has bound it for so long, and there was
not only a moderately active business through
out the day, bnt It was much more evenly dis
tributed than nsual of late, and the tone of the
dealings remained positively strong from open
ing to close. In this movement the Chicago
party was given the credit of being the leaders,
and the Granger stocks, as was to be expected,
led the list generally in both activity and
strength. The indications are that tho upward
turn is due to the increased movement in
grain, which has set in with considerable
There was no help from the foreigners, as
this was a bank holiday in London, bn,t other
outside centers sent liberal buying orders in
lor their favorite, while the advance in quota
tions was materially assisted by the covering qf
shorts in all the principal- stocks. As a mark ot
the improved tone of the transactions there was
considerable trading in the stocks which have
been neglected for a long time, and these alone
shared In the improvement. The advances
were very uniform, and almost all the leading
shares rnade material final gains.
The opening was made at advances over Sat
urday's closing figure of from U to Muer
cent, and was succeeded by an active and'
iroog market, tue only exception Deing ongar
Trust, which declined 1 per cent in the first
few minutes. The early dealings were also
marked by a sharp upward spurt in Oregon
Transcontinental from 82$ to 31i, bnt this was
all lost with something In addition before the
close, and rumors M Mr." Villard selling nut
were circulated. All the active stocks rose
materially in the first hour and Sugar Trust re
covered Its entire loss and afterward took the
lead in the advance, scoring a handsome final
gain. The market quieted down somewhat
after 1 o'clock, bnt the upward movement was
continued, bnt the trading became devoid of
feature beyond the sudden rise In Manhattan
from 92 to 95 on what appeared to be Inside
Sugar showed some weakness toward delivery
hour, but rallied again later, while tbe general
list gave evidence of some realizing iorthe last

assured, and there will be great difficulty hold

WOULD RATHER DIE.
"1 would rather die than undergo another ex
perience such as I have for the past four years
Tbe catarrhal poison in my system caused me
to be continually taking cold, and with every
cold tbe pains in ray head became more in
tense. Although I was able to get rid of some
of the poisonous matter by hawking and spit
ting out what dropped down into my throat,
and had some nasal discharge, yet the secre
tion kept piling up in my head much faster
than I was able to expel it, until a severe inflam
mation and ulceration set in. My eyes became
so inflamed and weak that I was obliged to
wear spectacles for one year and a bait. My
nose became greatly swollen and puffed out and
tbe disease ulcerated deeper and deeper
until fire bones dropped ont ot my nose,
some of them measuring one Inch and a half
in length. Also, a large bone dropped out of
the roof of my mouth. Although my appetite
was good, vet I gradually lost flesh until I only
weighed 73 pounds. I treated with several
physicians, but found no relief, for I could
neither get any peace by day or rest by night.
I finally became very deaf, and as my condi
tion was continually crowing worse leave np
all hope, until one day I happened to read in
the papers testimonials from patients who had
been cured of catarrh at the Catarrh and
Dyspepsia Institute, at 323 Penn avenue, and
as these patients' fnll name and residence
was given, I thought that perhaps there was
yet some doctor who did really cure
catarrh. I called at tbe Catarrh
and Dyspepsia Institute, and was
told by tbe physicians that although tbey
could not restore tbe lost parts occasioned by
the bones dropping out, they could yet remove
every trace of the catarrhal poison from my
system, and thus save me from consumption
for my throat had become very sore and ulcer
ated, and I was afraid I would die with con
sumption, as soma of my friends bad done. I
therefore placed myself under their treatment
and tbey have kept their word, fori have been
entirely cured by their constitutional blood
medicines, and, strange as it .may seem, they
never gave me any local treatments at alL
This leads me to think that catarrh has its
origin in tbe blood. My bearing has been re
stored. I have regained my flesh, and feel well
and strong. I reside on Penn avenue, this
city. Just opposite St. Mary's Cemetery, and
shall be pleased to tell anyone further of my
terrible suffering and wonderful cure.
