Office of Pittsbukg Dispatch, 1
Wednesdat, September 11, 1SS. J
The run of cattle was the lightest for a
number of weeks past, and lully GO loads
less than last week. Receipts on Monday
were about 110 loads, and the total for the
week has been abont 120 loads, against 180
to 185 loads last week. In this week's sup
plies there were more good cattle in pro
portion to the total than for some weeks
past Two loads of prime steers from Ohio,
consigned to Xeedy, and weighing over
1,600 pounds, appear to have been too good
for this market. Tlie shipper had his figures
above 4c, and this was the highest price
offered. It was reported that tbese primes
wore retailed at 4J4Jc.
Tidy Bntcher Stock Ulelicr.
S. B. Hedges & Co., in their circular sent out
to customers to Jay, reported good heavy
cattle in full supply and 1020c lower than
last week, while tidy butcher stock and feeders
are 1020c higher, owing to supply being not
orer half that of last week. Many of the
cattle coming to our markets of late are. In
the language of commission men, "not fully
ripe." They have the style and ontside show,
and, to the inexperienced eye are all that is
desired. But, not having been grainfed last
winter and spring, they fail to come up to
standard in killing and eating. The proof of
the pudding is in the eating," and the same is
true of roasts and steaks. The steer which
was not grainfed last spring will give evidence
of the fact when his best cuts get onto the
dinner table. A leading Liberty stockman said
to-day: "We have been receiving a good deal ot
stock of late which have the st !e, but not the
quality. All is not gold that glitters, and all
nice-appearing beeves are
Not iho Genuine Article.
"Grainrcd cattle will mighty soon show their
value to an experienced eye. Many that look
well enough to a greenhorn make Terypoor
meat. The shnnkago is great and quality of
meat is poor. This class of cattle comes into
competition with Texas and Colorado stock,
and shippers are very often disappointed be
cause of the failure of this class to bring the
outside prices. Commission men receive no
little cursing because of their failure to sell
these grassfed cattle, which make a good shew,
at the same prices as those that are fullvnpe.
The shipper of this kind of stock will find at
liume a more fit subject for cursing than the
commission man. Let him put more corn into
lils cattle, and he will have less cause
for cursing. Western shippers last week
were too high in their ideas of the
value of export cattle and many such cattle
consigned to this market were sent ou East to
fare worse. Bujers here for Eastern firms
made better offers than were realized by send
ing the stock on, and this week offers for ex
port cattle are not as good as last. It seems
that the opportunities for European shipment
last weeK had been forestalled, and the dealers
would have done better to have accepted offers
made here last Monday w eek than to have sent
cattle to Eastern markets. "Go further and
fare worse' is a proverb that has been demon
strated to the satisfaction, or rather to the dis
comfort, of some Western cattlemen the past
Miccp, Lambs and Hogs.
Supply has been light all the weer, and
prices are 10 to 15c higher. Some dealers re
port a greater advance. The quality of sheep
and lambs coming to the market is below
standard. The same is true of hogs. The ma
jority of hogs offered are grassers and stubbers,
in which there is heavy shrinkage. Those
which are farthest traveled are most in de
mand, as they come from, regions where corn
abounds. Under ordinary circumstances home
bogs are test, but corn is more of an item here
than in Iowa and Kansas, and this fact is
readily discovered in the quality of hogs
shipped from those far Western States.

A Firmer Feeling In the Wheat Pit
Scarcity of No. 2 nnd Government
Report Give Iho Bulls Back
boneAll Options Close
at Top Prices.
Chicago There was a stubbornly firm
wheat market within a Jo ranEe to-day. The
bnlk of the trading up to noon in December
was at and around 7o78Je above yesterday's
closing quotation for that future. The opening
range was from lie to 3c higher. Initial sales
of December were at 7SJc A little later the
prioo was TSJJc, and after a Jc reaction it
climbed back to that figure again. So far as
public cables were concerned they told nothing
but quiet markets on the other side at un
changed price's. Private ones were positively
bearish in tone as a rule.
The scarcity of No. 2 wheat both In and out
side of the elevators is beginning to attract
general attention, and without doubt is a mild
deterrent at present to free short selling. This
and the Government report was what gave the
market backbone to-dav. The last crop bull
let In indicates an aggregate yield of 4S5.000,
000 bushels, or 1,000,000 less than the August re
port. These figures on wheat are final until the
Government survey of the situation in Janu
ary. Another strong feature of the market to
day was the excellent consumptive demand.
There were not only several export orders here,
but Ohio millers .were baying both spot and
futures. One foreign buying order for No. 2
red wheat could not be filled.
A liberal business was transacted between
room traders, and there was larger buying for
long account by "Wall street parties than noted
for some time past The best prices of the day
were realized jest before the close, the latest
quotation being practically at the top. Based
on yesterday's closings, there was a net gain of
A quiet, firm feeling prevailed in the corn
market, with trading only of moderate volume
and confined principally to local operators.
The better tone was attributed largely to re
ceipts falling off some. The Government crop
report showing a reduction of about 6 points
from last month, or equivalent to about 90,-
000.000 also had a tendency to create some
strength. The crop is now estimated at about
1.960,000,000 bushels. Cables were easier. The
market here opened firm at yesterday's closing
prices, was firm for a time, eased off a ltttle.
recovered and closed JiSc better than yester
day. Oats rnled quiet but steady.
In port, trading In the near deliveries was
ngnt, Dut in May fair. There was no pressure
to Sell, but sufficient demand from npvprn.1
large operators to support values. Trading
was only moderately active. October delivery
rnled easier, but rallied slightly during the lat
ter part of the session. January, on the other
band, ruled stronger and sold at a slight ad
vance, which was fairly well supported.
A light trade was reported in lard and the
feeling was easy. Prices favored buyers.
Only a moderate trade was reported in short
ribs, and the feeling was comparatively steady.
Prices exhibited very little change.

Brokers, like poets and artists, are born,
not made. Their business is of such a
nature as to require the exercise of gifts that
are beyond acquisition, in the ordinary
sense of the word. A man may become a
broker by practice and training, but the
typical operators the Goulds, the "Vander
bilts and others who have cut a figure in
"Wall street are products of nature.
The following description of this useful
class of citizens, and of their methods of do
ing business, is condensed from a recent publi
cation, the author being a graduate of the New-
l orK stock Exchange.
In the roll of members of the New York
Stock Exchange, he says, as of every other
Dourse, are men true and honorable in the
highest degree; men of education and culture,
who would scorn to take undue advantage by
the breadth of a hair; men generous to a fault
and possessing a large share of all the good
qualities necessary to give roundness and per
fection to character. But the impression has
gone abroad that as a body, and acting on the
lines and Instincts of their profession, brokers
are like wolves, constantly seeking lambs to
Nothing could be more unjust or further
from the truth. They are necessary to the
transaction of large and important interests.
They hold the same relation to stocks that
bankers do to money, and are qnite as honor
able in their dealings. Your banker under
takes the safe custody of your cash until you
find an outlet for its investment After you
hare bought something. Government bonds,
railroad shares, or like property, you can, with
the assistance of your broker, in a very short
time, turn your commodities again into money
at the expense of what is really a very mod
erate commission, or the broker will both buy
and sell for you. Whether you get as much
or more than you paid for your stocks is yonr
own concern. With that the broker has very
little to do. He cannot make prices. He has,
as a rule, nothing whatever to do with the
management of the property which is in part
represented by the scrip in yonr possession.
He cannot help the falling off of dividends;
the decrease in traffic receipts; the growth of
expenses, or the money lost by accidents or
Incompetent administration. For these eccen
tricities it would be as unjust to blame your
broker as your banker for low rates of interest
He would only be too happy were all his clients
to accumulate wealth and the value of their
shares forever to advance. And it is not his
fault that they do not

An average volume of business was trans
acted at the leading banks yesterday, bnt there
were no new developments. According to sev
eral reports very litttle discounting is done
under 6 per cent, and some of it above, show

its f nil employment during the fall and winter
has caused rates to harden.
Some scarcity of currency was reported, bnt

Of course, as in all other activities of life,
now and then a broker may be found whose
standing is bad, but such an one receives very
little comfort from his brethren, who scorn
sharp practice of whatever kind, not only on
moral ground, hut because it brings discredit to
the profession. Brokers, as well as bankers and
merchants, sometimes come to grief; they over
leap themselves and fall on 'tother side "go
broke," and, when overtaken by the latter ca
lamity, their clients are co-sufferers. It is not
fairor just that the big bxuses should have all
the business it should be distributed so as to
give all a chance but inasmuch as no man
wonld willingly entrust his savings for safe
keeping in the possession of a bank of doubtful
strength or standing, so a sensible person
would not retain a broker to execute his com
missions without some assurance that his mar
gin were in safe-keeping, and that his profits,
if any, would be forthcoming when called for.
Brokers seldom give and never volunteer ad
vice. If you endeavor to pump them, as re
porters well know, tbey answer you In a round
about way that leaves you In greater doubt
than before. If you ask them for opinions out
right the usual reply is that their business is
to execnte orders, and yours to arrive at de
cisions. But, somehow, whenever you inter
view your broker you intuitively form impres
sions which, when analyzed, sifted and put
together again, make you feel that in some
sense you have actually received advice. The
typical broker does not care to be reproached
for having told you to do wrong, and he is
naturally very careful that you shall not be
able to cast reflections upon him, or, at a
future period, reproach him for his bad judg
ment His object is to do right; and if he fall
it is not throngh dishonesty or want of judg
ment but Is the result of causes over which he
has no control.
The Pittsburg Exchange, although not as
promineut and Influential as it ought to be, and
will be, is an Important factor in maintaining
and expanding the business interests of the
city, and it should be the aim of every citizen
to lend it a helping hand, to give it countenance
and snpporr, to enable it to achieve its mani
fest destiny. It is controlled by men of estab
lished character. The brokers who daily con
gregate there to buy or sell for themselves or
others, are in all respects the equals of any
similar body of men in the country, active,
energetic, intelligent "stand four-square to
every wind that mows, and the properties
handled are among the best in the country.
These are not "gambling" stocks, but repre
sent legitimate enterprises in which millions ot
Pittsburg money are invested, and upon the
success of which the prosperity of the city de-
penus 10 a larger oegree man me majority of
people are aware of.

New York Raids the OU Market nnd Kills
There was a buoyant feeling at the opening
of the oil market yesterday, and it was thought
me uonar line would be reached, if not crossed.
Bnt brokers propose and something, nobody
seems to know what disposes. The first quota
tion was 99. The bullish contingent then set to
and run it up to99. At this juncture, when
everything was moving along swimmingly and
every prospect was pleasing. New York began
to unload, and raided the market down to
9SJJ. Buyine here and in Oil City near the
close turned the tide, and there was a rally to
9 which proved to be the closinc figure
There was considerable trading, but in small
lots, no one having courage to attempt larce
blocks. The feeling at the windup was indica-
HTe,nStcon?dencc- Tuesday's clearings were
A broker remarked: "I am bullish, hut am
afraid to carry out my inclination. The mar
ket is too uncertain. If they could break it
yesterday, the manipulators can do the same
to-morrow or whenever tbey please. The only
safe way to deal is to go for what is in sight"
The other side is afraid to run np much of a
short interest for pretty much the same rea
sons. So it may be said the market is on tie

strong later in the day. The temper at the
opening was better than during the past two

movement in the absence of any pronounced
pressure upon the list further advanced quota

disposition was to await the result of the St.

took advantage of the hesitation and the early
gains were quickly wiped out

The crew of the schooner Dictator, which
arrived here to-day, tell a tale of what
seems to be a clear ease of "Shanghaing;."
The Dictator is engaged in -the Geoges cod
fishery and carries a crew of Portuguese.
They state that last Sunday when the
Dictator was lying ofl the Georges, a steamer
signalled for something. The Port
uguese conid not understand the
language and sent off a boat
wita three men and some fresh cod.
The men were seen to throw the fish nn
board and then get aboard themselves. The
steamer at once raised anchor and steamed

Dr. Shafer, one of the physicians of the
Polypatbic Medical Institute, at 420 Penn ave.
Mr. C. V. Pnlpress, of No. 48 Liberty street,
Allegheny, had for a lone time suffered from a
weak, tired feeling: no ambition, pain across
the small of his back and palpitation of the
heart. His complexion was very sallow, and as
the diseased condition of his kidneys from
which he suffered further progressed, his stom
ach became involved. He had bloatinc. belch
ing of gas and distress after eating. Ho lost
flesh, his memory became poor and his mind
became so affected that he could neither read or
think, and was in constant fear of becoming in
sane. He often felt dizzy, so that everything
seemed to be in a whirl, and he became sn
nervous as to entirely unfit him for any busi
ness. Having read in the papers that tho
physicians of the Polypathic Medical Institute
make a specialty of kidney and nrinary diseases
he began treatment with them. His own words
state the result: "This Is to certify that I have
been cured by the physicians of the Polypathic
iuciuuu xusu.ulc at, uu renu aTenuc.
