Office of Pittsburg Dispatch, 1
Friday, September 27, 18S9. J
There are no marked changes in pnce3 of
market basket materials since last Satur
day. Tomatoes are a shade higher and
peaches are growing scarce. The varieties
of fruits are narrowing down, until grapes
and apples will soon have the field. These,
with tropical fruits, will be alone in their
glory within the next few weeks. Peaches
are still on the market in limited quantity;
lul the quslitv is none of the best, and
prices are high.' Dealers in Iruits and vegeta
bles report trade slow for the week, and attri
bute it to tlie fact that prices are on the up
Poultry Exceptionally Scnrcr,
There is an unusual scarcity of poultry, and
pricc- in this line are moving up hicher. Our
markets arc mainly dependent on Chicago
for poultry bupplies In this section the crop
was never scarcer, and Thanksgiving and
Christmas tnrkeys would be out of reach of the
average purse, if we were dependent on the
ne-iriiy porltry crop. A peddler who pays
wrcklv visits to our markets aud traverses a
region of country 50 miles west of Pittsburg,
reports that in 15 j ears' experience ho has not
known poultry as scarce in this section as it is
Bntter keeps steadily moving upward, and
supplies in tins line will no doubt be more ex
pensive than they were a week aco.
Fish mid Oysters Wanted.
The fish sunply has been far below demand
for a week or two past. Storms along the coast
have curtai)ed supplies, and our dealers here
have not been able to meet Demands.
Baltimore oysters hac also been in scant
supply for a number of days. One of the lead
ing dealers said to-day: "we nave not ueeu awe
lor a week past to more than half till our or
ders. In the earlv Dart of the week we were
almost bare of stock. There were not enouch
choice oysters ana nsh in the Pittsburg market
on Monday to supply one lirs'-class restaurant.
Ana eien yet we cannot, by our utmost en
deavor, get half enough stock to meet the de
mands of out customers."

Chicago The speculative trade in wheat
was again of largo volume to-day, but the
market was very unsettled and irregular,
price fluctuating frequently and rapidly. The
opening was weak, and JJgC off, the weak
ness starting really on the curb yesterday.
News from tho outside was conflicting and
some of it very sensational. The crowd early
were disposed to fight all hard spots and a
majority of local speculators looked for a
break. Fluctuations in the latter dealings
took a wide range and the market was wabbly,
ruling strong and weak by turns
Minneapolis advised that the advance in
wheat had stopped the flour busmees, ard it
was said that orders here for Dnluth wheat
were 45c too low for present working. Early
London cables were d dearer with a good in

Liverpool cables to the board noted a penny

One of the early bull cards was the reported
working of 20 loads at Baltimore for export.
This news put the market up sharply about
noon, but the report was afterward contra

closing figures were lilJSc lower for the day,

In corn a fair speculative trade was wit

firmer. Trading was in the main local, the
principal feature lying the heavy selling of
October and the buying of December by a
prominent local trader, which narrowed the

Pittolrarg About the Only Place Where
They Meet With Mnch Favor.
WESTINGH00SE HACMKE CO. BUSHED
A number of important deeds in real
estate were closed up yesterday, but only
one was in shape to be given to the public.
Henry A. Weaver & Co., sold the two three
story warehouses Kos. 62 and 63 Water
street, haying a frontage of 44 feet and a
depth of 160 feet, to First avenue, for
530,000. The names of buyers and sellers
are withheld at their request. Another
firm reported five sales, aggregating about
540,000, but declined to give particulars.
A broker remarked: "There is quite a
rivalry between the East and West Ends in
regard to improvements. The former is
ahead at present, but the completion of the
California boulevard and two electric rail
ways will give the latter such an impetus as to
compel Its competitor to hustle."
If he who makes a blade of grass grow where
none grew before is a benefactor, what title of
distinction should bo applied to the man who
will reduce the cost of house building in Pitts
burg! This is a matter of great importance to
citirens of all classes After reading the com
munication in The Dispatch yesterday,
signed "Contractor," a gentleman who handles
a large amount of real estate and manages a
great many houses remarked:
"I read the interview with the Fourth ave
nue dealerin regard to building in Philadelphia,
as published in TnE Dispatch with great in
terest; for it contained some points that were
new to me. It was not an arraignment of Pitts
burg contractors or capitalists but suggestive
of new ideas in builains:. the adoption of which
would, in my opinion, be advantageous to
Jittsburg. One thing is beyond dispute we
need more houses to accommodate the people,
and the cheaper they can be built, to secure
good work, the better.
" 'Contractor' appears to have a poor opinion
of Philadelphia houses Ho says that some of
them have only two fireplaces and that the
rooms ate small. It is not necessary to go to
Philadelnhia to find houses with only two fire
places I have been renting one with that
number of fireplaces for several years and the
tenants find it very comfortable, and there are
others that I could mention. Of course they
have heaters and so they have m Philadelphia.
I might add that some of the honsfes in Phila
delphia have no fireplaces at all, not even
chimneys This is a great saving in space, Cost
of construction and fuel. The average fire
place costs about $10. Those of a fancy pattern
cost from S150 to S300, and even more. So it is
easy to see that the fewer the fireplaces the
cheaper the building.
"The idea of filling a honse full of fire
places, one in every room, is an old one, and is
being abandoned everywhere except In Pitts
burg. Furnaces are cheaper and more satis
factory. I am not defending Philadelphia
houses or contractors My interest is in Pitts
burg. But I am always thankful for a bint or
suggestion tbat may be of value to me, no mat
ter where it comes from. It would be unreason
able to expect Pittsburg contractors to build as
cheaply in all cases as is done in Philadelphia,
for conditions are different, but the time is
coming when the cost of buildinz will be prac
tically the same here as there, and the avoid
ance of a multiplicity of. fireplaces and rooms
large enough for banqueting halls will assist in
no small degree to bring about this much de
The business of the Westinghouse Machine
Company is growing at a marvelous rate. Dar
ing the past five years its buildings have been
extended from the square in Pittsburg origi
nally occupied by the Westinehouso Airbrake
Company until they now occupy 2Jf blocks of
contiguous property. Machinery has beeh
addea (much of it quite recently) until now
the limit has been reached and there is no
space for more. No additional property is avail
able in the vicinity, and to keep pace with the
constant growth of the business the company is
engaged in erecting a three-story warehouse for
finished engines repairs etc, which will be
provided with steam hoists, overhead cranes
and all known appliances for the quick and eco
nomical handling of heavy weights.
In addition to this, the company is taking on
a complete new force of workmen, so that the
establishment will henceforth be operated con
tinuously day and night. Their monthly stock
bulletin shows tbat on August 1 there were 232

It is announced that a company already in
operation at Litclifleld, Bk, will pipe fuel and
illuminating gas into East St. Louis Mr.
Henry O'Hara, a capitalist of St, Louis, who is
prominent in the enterprise, says they have a
process for manufacturing gas from Lima, (O.)
oil, which costs VL cents a gallon. This amount
of oil renders over LOOO feet of gas They have
eight miles of pipe down, and are furnishing
families at a rate which for lighting a large
house, and supplying three stoves with fuel
takes but S54 per annum from the proprietor's
The plant they arepntting into Litchfield
will cost some S60.00O. From this they propose
to lay an eight-inch gas main to East St. Louis,
37 miles and deliver their product there at a
prico far below that which the company now in
power there can do. They claim that they can
give light and heat to the city at 5 cents per
LOOO feet of gas or could give it away for a
long time and scarcely feel it, the production
costs so little.
The carious calculator has lately been reck
oning up the cost of the London strike. He
estimates the loss of dock revenue and in
creased expenses of the dock companies at
the combined total of 125,000; the strikers' loss
in wages at 225,000; the loss to tho shipping
trade at the enormous figure of 700.000; and
the loss to merchants by the nondelivery of
goods the deterioration or destruction of car
goes and tho necessity of fulfilling contracts
at enhanced prices at 600,000. Other inciden
tal losses are sufficient to bring the total waste
of money involved in the strike up to nearly
two million sterling, or, in round numbers, $10,
000,000. But it is believed the benefit to organ
ized labor will by far outweigh the cost.
A Raid on Central Traction The Natural
" Gas Stocks Stronger.
A break in Central Traction was the princi
pal feature of the stock market yesterday.
Under heavy realizing by Whitney fc Stephen
son it declined from 31H to 31J The stock was
stronger in the afternoon, selling in a small
way at 3li. It was reported that the depres
sion was due to fears of another assessment,
bnt it can be said on reliable authority tbat
none i3 in contemplation. Messrs. Whitney &
Stephenson sold on orders and were not in
fluenced by a change, present or prospective,
in the condition of the company.
There was a marked Improvement in natural
gas shares lndicatmc that the scare over a
shortage and loss of business is about over.
Philadelphia sold at 35. and closed at 36 asked.
The mining shares were weak, and. with the
exception of La Noria, neglected. The latter

Oil Gives War In Sympathy With the De
pression in Stocks.
Very little was dono in oil yesterday, trading
being licht both East and West. The. market
was strong and weak by spells. The former on
buying in New York and the latter on the de
pression in railroad shares, caused by reports
of tight money. The feeling at the close was
rather buoyant. The opening was 09$, the
highest 99K, the lowest 98K, and the closing
The London Grocer recently published a re
port from the British actine vice Consul at
Batoum. in which he says: "The price of kero
sene at Batoum has lately risen 25 per cent,
and still has an upward tendency, while the
6 rice of crude petroleum at the wells near
aku has at the same time advanced 100 per
cent. This is solely due to the fact that the
demand, both for home and foreign con.
sumption during the year is estimated as near
as possible at 3,225.b06 tons whereas the total
outpnt of the Baku wells will, it is stated, fall
short of those figures, and the maximum quan
tity of crude oil that thev will be able to yield
is set down at only 1,612.903 tons Unless,
therefore, ue w sources are discovered a cessa
tion of the supply of petroleum from Baku may
be expected within a short time."
The foregoing was written under date of July
26, and on August 3 the British Consul at
Odessa. Russia, writing further on the subject,
says: "Futile efforts have recently been made
to strike oil. In consequence of the state of
affairs prices remain firm, and a decline during
the present season Is not expected."
The Idea In New Yoik.
NewYobk, September 27. Exciting times
will in all probability be witnessed among the
oil traders of the Exchange in this city,and the
Pennsylvania Exchanges in the next few days
The oil men. members of the Consolidated Ex
change.obtained about 150 signatures to-day to a
petition advocating the abolition of the nre
ent system of trading in oil options and ad
vising a return to the old system. The matter
will be referred to a conference of mem
bers of f the New York, Pittsburg, Oil
City, ilraatord and Philadelphia exchanges. A
telegram was sent to the Bradford Exchange
to-day asking their ideas on the xubject, and
an answer was received stating that the mem
bers of the Bradford Exchange did not deem it
advisable to change the present mode of trad
ing in options, and tbat they were making
money as it stands. A strife is imminent
among the traders of the different Exchanges
over the matter.

Hisher Prices In London and Increased
Earnlnes Combine to Slake Things
LIveiy Uclr Humor Cnnse Un
easiness More Losses
New Yobk, September 27. The stock mar
ket was more active to-day, and displayed more
character than it has for months and tho deal
ings were attended by much excltemept. The
final result of the day's operations however, so
far as the regular list is concerned, was gener
ally only fractions The feeling this morning
was very hopeful, not to say confident, and
higher prices in London with eood buying from
that center, with the continued favorable re
turns of earnings, were influential In establish
ing a higher range of values at tha opening.
The market displayed a decided broadening
tendency, the number of stocks traded in
during the first hour's business being larger
than at an) time this year, while the volume of
business was on a corresponding scale.
The local bull leaders were more active, and
the increase in the number. of orders executed
for outsiders was very marked. Burners from
Boston in regard to the Presidency of Missouri
Pacific made tbat stock the leader in the early
trading, and it was soon followed by Lacka
wanna, Cleveland, Columbus Cincinnati and
St. Louis and some ethers while Manhattan
continued its upward march on rumors of a set
tlement lot the claims of property owners
against tile company. Pullman also displayed
unusual strength on light dealings, and later
Michigan Central joined the procession. Sngar
Trusts were still eak and made a decline in
the forenoon, which extended to about 3 per
cent, but t seemed to have little or no effect
upon the regular list, as no reason conld he as
signed foij the drop, and the rest of the market
was effectually divorced from its movements
After 11 o'clock, however, there were ugly
rumors set afloat in regard to Atchison, and it
was stateil that the financial plan for the rena
bilitationpf the company would prove a failure
and necessitate a receivership. A default on
the Octouer interest was also promised, while
the reorganization scheme was io include a S10
assessment. There was a flood of the stock for
sale, and a break was started which only
ceased when the stock bad declined something
over 4 per cent. Denials of the stories circulated
were made, but they seemed to help the stock
uuhiiLuch'ftQu wneu ue selling muveuieub uau
exhausted Itself the rally was feeble and could
not hold.l Sugar Trusts which had given signs
of inside tupport, went down again, and its ex
treme losi was 8 per cent
These movements created great uneasiness in
the room, and the pressure to sell extended to
all portions of the list, and before delivery hour
all the advances of the forenoon were wiped
out, and In most cases fractional losses in addi
tion were'sustained. All the notable strong
stocks of j the forenoon, snch as Jersey Central,
Manhattan, Missouri Pacific, Lackawanna and
Delaware and Hudson dropped rapidly, while
the others kept pace, and in every case the
opening figures were passed on the downward
movement. The selling craze came to a halt
toward delivery hour, and a reaction began
which made some progress notwithstanding
the fact that money on call was bid np to 10 per
cent. The activity disappeared from the mar
ket, however, and the movements became
limited to small fractions generally, though in
the case of Manitoba moil pronounced strength
was developed and it rose 2 per cent.
Manhattan, Jersey Central and Delaware and
Hudson rallied sharply and Sngar rose from
87 to 90, and Atchison from 34 to 88. The
improvement in most oi me list was slight,
however, and the tone of the market at the
close was unsettled and rather heavy. The
final changes are quiet irregular, while de
clines are rather the more numerous but gen
erally are confined to small fractions. Sugar is
down bl4. Cotton Oil and Short Line 1 per cent
each, and Atchison 3 per cent. The important
advances include Manitoba and Manhattan,
each 3 per cent, and Jersey Central and Lake
Erie and Western preferred, each 1 per cent.
Railroad bonds responded to the improved
feeling with more activity and more decidedly
strong tone, though the decline in the after
noon was also felt and the final resnlt of the
trading is to leave most of the active bonds bnt
