W. P. Fhillips, a larmer ol Lincoln town
ship, who is in attendance at court this
week as jurwnan, reports lor his section ot
the county, namely, that iyinj: between the
Youch and Slouonjraliela rivers, as follows.
"The yield of hay has not been as large
the past "four years as this season. The
wheat and oats crop are both considerably
above the average. Corn will not come up
to. average, and potatoes are not turnine; out
nearly as -well as they promised earlier in
the season. Manv are found to be rotting in
the ground, especially where planted in clayey
soil, which is eail accounted for by that kind
of soil retaining the moisture of which we
have had an ocrabundance this season.
Hay, Oats anil Fruit.
"What has been a peat help to hay and oats
has been a Wight to the potato crop. As to
fruit of all kinds, it is a failure this season in
my section. Even apples will be a vcr light
crop, and as to peaches and plums, there are

Urines Good Markets
close to the farmers, who, in the good old days
of yore, must needs haul their butter, eggs
and produce by roads that were sometimes
bottomless to "Pittsburg markets. Our most
prosperous neighboring cities are Braddock
and McKee-port. and their prospeiity has been
reached almost entirely inide of the past 20
xears. Bat the prosperity of these turning
5 nunc cities, whicuwill soon be such in name
as thev alread are in fact, has been shared by
the farming population:, in their vicinity, who
readily obtain outside values lor their products
A recent interview with a leading boss
mechanic of the ixlgar Thomson Steel Works,
ISradUock. developed the fact that the rail
road of late have not been able to furnish
Tr:iEportai!on for Siccl Rails
ordered anii ready for shipment. The prodnet
ofthcwoiks is already sold up to January
next.and for an cek;or tw o past large quantities
are waiting facilities for transportation.
It was also learned in this interview that one
of the Urge boiler manufacturing firms of this
city, which is constructing the boiler plate for
the new furnaces now in process of construction
at the Edgar Thomson Works, has been com
pelled to rctuse orders lhe past few weeks.
The evidences of prosperity ahead have not
been as apparent in must departments of our
manufacturing industries for j eais as they are
at the present time.
A Jicw Grading of Cereals.
TLc Committee on Grain Inspection of the
Grain Exchange submitted samples of No. 2
white and cx:ra 3 white oats to govern the in
spection in these grades the coming year, or
until others are provided. Extra Ho. 3 must
weigh 2) pounds to the bushel, and No. 2 30
pounds. They have also recommended that
No. 3 red w heat shall weigh not less than 5S
pounds. Thev further recommended that a
new grade be established called No. 4 red
wheat, to weigh not less than 50 pounds to the
bushel. The changes as provided for by the
Committ op of Inspection were approved by the
Hoard of Directors. For the present all other
grades will remain as hcrctotore. The above
changes are to go into effect Octooer 1 next.

MARKETS BY WIRE.-
A Qaiet Fcellnu In the Wheat Pit, With
Small Fluctuation nnd Msht Trnd-
np A Kick AcaIntl3radInE
Oilier Commodities glow
Chicago The speculative market in wheat
averaged dull and narrow, but strong to-day.
Opening figures were practically at the closing
range of yesterday, and after a range of c in
the leading futures, the market hong sluggish
and characterless all the forenoon within the
range of 7SS7Sc for December and 82
S2K fr 31aF- There appeared to be no pres
sure to sell from any quarter, and at times both
the demand and offerings where so small that
business in the pit was at a complete standstill.
News was scarce. On thebnll side the most
important items were the reported decrease for
tho week in the quantity of wheat and flour on
ocean passage of L16S.O0O bushels the smaller
receipts of wheat in tho Northwest, and the
light estimate for to-morrow at this point.
Tho miserably poor grading of current ar
nvals is attracting widespread attention, and
tncro does not appear to be many people in
the trade hero who can offer a satisfactory
explanation of the existing state of affairs.
Out of 372 cars inspected to-day there were
only seven of tho contract grade, or less than
2 per cent. No ono doubts the existence of
some No. 2 wheat in the country somewhere,
but the question is when it will be marketed.
At least one line of December shorts was cov
ered to-day to the extent of about a quarter of
a million bushels by a houso with foreign con
nections. It was said that this buying was
done wholly on the inspection showing.
Asian offset to the bullislAnfluenccs enumer
ated was a continuatiun of the light export
and indifferent tone of the cables, public and
private. Good support was given wheat hero
by a prominent opeiator, who was a persistent
and steady bujer on all the weak spots. Final
closing prices w ere a little under tho extreme
outward range, but there was a net gain over
yesterday's closing of KJi.
A fair speculative trade was reported in
corn, and the feeling developed was somewhat
firmer, transactions being at slightly higher
nricos. The market opened KSSlic better than
the closing prices of y estertlay, was steady for
a tunc, then advanced Jc. ruled weaker, and
closed a shade better than yesterday. The
better tone was due to tho general chance m
the weather and smaller estimated receipts,
which started local shorts to covering, but at
outside prices offerings were quite heavy, and
the full advanco was not sustained.
Oats were traded in moderately and steady
feeling preailed, but price changes w ere very
In mess pork a fairly active trade was re
ported. October delivery showed moro
strength, advancing 25SS0C, but other deliv
eries were easier, and changed bands at 12X
Not much interest centered in tho lard mar
ket, and trading was limited. Near deliveries
were comparatively steady, but deferred deliv
eries were easier, and about 2Jc lower.
In short rib sides only a mouerate trade was
reported. Prices ruled 25c lower on the de
ferred deliveries, and the market closed quiet
The leading futures ranged as follows-

AMONG THE FINEST.
One Cause of the Boom in tbe Glen
"wood and Hazelwood District.
IMPKOVED RAILROAD SERVICE.
lhe Baltimore and Ohio Making Great Ef
forts to Please Its Patrons.
A TALK WITH TICKET AGENT SMITH
Change is the order of nature and the rule
of man. Improvement follows change.
New ideas and methods are crowding out
old ones all over the world. People of this
day look back to primitive railroading with
wonder and astonishment how so crude a
system, beset with so m3iiy difficulties and J
dangers to the public, could have been re
garded with favor. But being recognized
as a necessity, improvements were suggested
and adopted, "until to-day tho railroad system
is approximately perfect.
Twenty or SO years ago, when the Baltimore
and Ohio was in its infancy, it. afforded very
unsatisfactory suburban accommodations.
This was not altogether the fault of the road.
The population was too sparse to justify a
better service. Property was held out of the
market or sold very sparingly, so that but few
buildings were put up. Population increased
slowly. The railroad was unjustly blamed for
causing this depression by refusing to afford
sufficient trains for the traveling public It
did all it conld without incurring heavy loss.
But all this is changed. The suburban dis
tricts penetrated by the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad are among the most flourishing in the
county. Great landed estates have passed and
are still passing into the possession of thou
sands of industrious people, ana are covered
with comfortable homes sheltering large pop
ulations, which arc rapidly becoming the cen
ters of important industries. Credit for this
improvement is due In a large measure, to tho
Baltimore and Ohio, which encouraged it in
every way by establishing stations where
needed, by building sidings to facilitate local
traffic, by increasing the number of trains to
accommodate the people, and by a general im
provement of the service corresponding to the
Twenty years ago George Singer made over
tures for the purchase of a large tract of land
near Glcnwood, but receiving no encourage
ment from the owner and learning that rail
road facilities were not what he desired, he
abandoned the project and made his invest
ment at Wilkinsburg, where he builtone of the
costliest houses in the county. If the Balti
more and Ohio service had boon what it is to
day, Mr. Singer would no doubt have carried
out his original purpose and given Glcnwood
its first boom.
While casting about yesterday for a reason
for the remarkable development of the district
which includes tho rising towns of Hazelwood
and Glcnwood I encountered Local Passenger
Agent E. D. Smith, of the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad, and from him I obtained the informa
tion desired. It is due almost entirely to tho
splendid suburban service on that road. Sir.
Smith, as his many friends well know, is a
modest man and averse to talking for publica
tion, but he was prevailed upon to make a
statement for tbe benefit of the public, and as
a matter of justice to the corporation with
which he has been identified for almost a
quarter of a century. He said:
"The suburban service of the Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad has been undergoing gradual
Improvement for the last sir or seven years,
until now it is equal if not superior to that
of any other road leading out of Pittsburg.
The number of trains running daily between
Pittsburg and Bissell, 18 miles out, Is 43, 24
each way. The Sunday service is particularly
good, there being seven trains each way. Ha
zelwood and Glenwood are especially favored
in this respect, all trains except one each way
stopping at those places. I have for 20 years
made it a point to ascertain from the patrons
of the road their views as to tho number of
trains required, as well as to the times of ar
rival and departure, and have made it a rule to
so cover the ground as to leave very short in
tervals between trains. While theremay have
been, and perhaps was, cause for complaint
years ago," in the early settlement of the dis
tract, there certainly Is none to-day. .Everything
possible is being done to please our patrons by
giving them an exceptionally good service, and
I think they will bear out what I say."
After remarking that still further improve
ments were in contemplation, Mr. Smith adued:
"Not only has the service been improved as
stated, but we have given our patrons the finest
depot in the city and coaches of the latest and
best construction. In tho latter respect we
are on a par with any other railroad In tho
country. Another feature of great importance
to our friends is the fact that under the super
vision of Jlr. J. V. Patton we mn trains strictly
on time, so that a man might safely regulate
his watch by them."
A LITTLE BETTER.
Moro Doing in Stocks, With Switch the
Business at the Stock Exchange yesterday
was about the average of recent times, tbe
sales being 343 shares. Switch and Signal was
the most interesting feature. It continued the
upward movement begun on Monday, selling
in tho afternoon at 24J-J and 24J. Philadelphia
Gas was w eaker. The tractions barely held
their own. It is said that Central is being
damaged by the injunction. Pittsburg might
be marketed at 4S, but it is doubtful. La Noria
was another weak brother, but Yankee Girl
came up smiling, being wanted at 4. Pittsburg
and 'Western preferred was in demand and
The slight decline noted should not be ac
cepted as evidence of growing weakness, or
that the stocks affected are falling into perma
nent disfavor. It all comes from the willing
ness of a few to accept concessions for a turn.
That they are not pressed for sale is sufficient
evidence of confidence on the part ot large
holders. Bids, offers and sales were:

Here New York stocks received more atten

Altogether it was tho dullest and most un
satisfactory market since the adoption of the
present system of trading. There were no
changes in, conditions and no importaut news.
The apathy was the result of wan; of orders
and an indisposition of the professionals to

New York, September 17. The stock mar
ket was dull to-day, but the temper of the deal
ings was in marked contrast to that of yester
day, and the losses of last evening were gener
ally fully recovered. The bearish feeling was
still strong this morning, but it soon disap
peared when it became suspected that the Chi
cago people wero 'sellers only for tho quick
turn, and the pressure upon p. ices was removed
before the noon hour, though the market up to
that time had been rcvensh and irregular.
There were several stones in regard to the
lines which have agreed to prorate with tho
Chicago, Burlington and Northern, but all of
them lacked confirmation, and the hopeful and
rea'sunng utterances of the Presidents of the
Northwestern, Rock Island and St. Paul gave
the finishing touch to the depression.
The traders shifting over to tho bull side im
mediately with the sudden turn in theNorthern
Pacifies was a great help to the market for the
time being. The sellers of that stick of yester
day and this morning were brought up with a

sharply and the rest of the market followed,
and as tho day wore along the bullish element
became more pronounced, and before delivery

the movement among the others in few in

Realizations checked the rise in the last
hour, and a partial reaction took place, bat the
close was dull and steady at the close to tbe best
prices of the day. The unlisted department
was comparatively neglected again, and, while
