OFFICK OF PITTSBURG DISPATCH. I
Wednesday. October 2. 1889. J
The rnn of cattle for local trade was
larger this week than for many months
past. The total exceeded 200 carloads,
against about 135 last week. A large pro
portion of those received were common and
low grades from Chicago, where there was a
run of 18.000 head in one day this week.
The extraordinary receipts at Chicago very
soon make an impression on onr markets by
oversupply of low-grade stock. It seems to
be the habit of dealers at the Western
lnetrojwlis, after the prime Btock is sold to
exporters, to dump the leavings on onr
cattle market. This has been very much
overdone this week, so that at noon to-day a
very large proportion of this inferior stock
was in the yards unsold.
A Kniurnl Consequence.
On Monday this inferior grade of cattle
started out 10 to 15c lower than the previous
Monday, and has been drifting lower ever
bince. Sellers are wrestling with the problem
of how to dispose ot a largo number of scala
wag cattle, which have already eaten up all
hope of profits, and concessions of as much as
40 per cent have been offered since Monday.
In the supplies this week were some 25 to 30
loads of prime 1.530 to 1,600 pound steers from
the vicinity of Cadix, O., which were bought
for export, at a ranee of 4Jto4c This was
fully up to last week's prices for export cattle;
but the quality this week was better than last.
Exnort rattle have been brmmnir better prices
in Chicago the past few weks than in Pitts
burg, for the reason that those offered in the
former place were better selected stock.
There the average has been brought down by
mixing a few low grade steers in a load. Tho
Cadiz cattle offered this week were not subject
to tins objection, and were quickly taken at
Supply was much larger this week than last,
and markets were slow at a decline of 25c Some
stockmen place the decline at 40c on low grades.
Unfavorable advices from Eastern markets had
a depressing influence on the market here, and
this, on top of large receipts and a generally
poor quality of stock, about knocked the bot
tom out of trade. At this season the general
quality of sheep received is low, the better
grades being kept for wook First-class mutton
will come 1 uer on, but for the present, the con
sumer as a rule must be content with that
which is juicelcss and tough.
llocs Maj Riant There.
'The run varied very little from that of a week
ago. Demand was active for all that were
offered at full last week's prices. Good corn
fed Yorkers have not for some time been in
supply equal to demand. Private advices re
ceived by one of onr leading pork packing
firms from Chicago, are that receipts of bogs
there to-day were 20.000 bead, and the range of
prices Si 50 to $1 60 for packing bogs.

settled. Chicago There was a rather active but
weaker opening to the wheat market to-day,
local sentiment leaning strongly to the bear
side. In the early dealings the only consider
able buying was by a prominent local operator,
and the reactions from weak spots throughout
the forenoon were generally due to his support.
But the market was so indecisive in its action
that fluctuations up to 12 o'clock were all with
in Jic range, and at an average decline from
yesterday's close of HcQlic December see
sawed between 882tfc and S2S2c with
the bulk ol the business passing at medium
Private cables were generally weak in tone,
and none of them brought buj ing orders for
either spot or futures. The most Important
bull news was the estimate made by a reliable
authentv of Louisiana, Mo., that 70 per cent (Jf
wheat is out of producers' hands in that State,
and an estimate by the Toledo Market Record
that 80 per cent is already out of the farmers'
hands in Ohia. The trade generally expect that
50 per cent of the crop will be back and to come
on January 1 in ordinary years. The close was
tame at a net loss of c May holding
steadier than the less deferred futures.
A better feeling was developed in corn, and
transactions were at slightly higher prices. A
prominent local trader was purchasing fair
quantities of November and year, which also
had a stimulating effect on values. The long
corn seems pretty well placed, ana there was
less disposition to sell than for several days
past. Tbe market opened YA above the closing
prices of yesteraay, was firm and advanced i

The market for pork was unsettled. Open
ing sales were at 2c decline. October ad
vanced 70c on purchases by a prominent oper
ator. The other futures were quiet, and prices
declined 712c, which was partly main
tained at the close.
Only a moderate business was transacted in
lard, and a quiet and easier feeling prevailed.
Offerings were fair and prices reduced 2c

JI'CREA PITIED HER.
A Fair Resident of gtftnbenville Iiosea Her
Ticket, bnt Gets Home.
Miss Alice Campbell, of Steubenville, a
young lady gifted with no small share of
beauty and possessed of engaging manners,
which, no doubt, stood ber in good stead in
ber difficulty, was in a sad predicament for
about five minutes at the Union depot last
night. The young lady had been spending
the day at the Exposition, and it was onlv
on again reaching the depot that she discov-
erea sue naa lett tier purse.wnicn contained
her ticket as well as her money, on a table
in the Exposition. For a moment the fair
expositionist was quite bewildered.
At the barrier, the polite ticket viewers
requested to see ber passport. "Ob, sir,
what shall I do, I have lost my purse and
ticket, and I want to go back to-night and I
haven't any money to pay for another; please
may I pass through." She was at once es
corted to tbe stationmaster's office, where
Mr. McCrea, the General Manager of the
Western lines, who chanced to be present,
on bearing ber case, at once made out a pass
for her to her home. The young and tbe
beautiful generally win their -way, but the
cross and tbe crabbed to get there must pay.

INSURANCE FOE ALMOST ETEEITHING.
The largest real estate transaction that
came to the surface yesterday was reported
by 'W. A. Herron & Sons. They closed the
sale of a block of land in the Twenty-second
ward, adjoining the proposed park, being
37 acres, with a large frame dwelling, barn,
etc., for 550,000 cash. The purchaser is a
well-known capitalist, making an invest
ment with a view to the advance which all
expect will take place in the Twenty-second
ward, Squirrel Hill, property, as a result of
the electric road, now building, which will open
up all that part of tbe East End.
Very few people, not connected with it, are
aware of the great diversity of the insurance
buslncs. as represented in Pittsburg. Asa
matter of information, the following, compiled
by a Fourth avenue agent yesterday. Is given:
Fire and life insurance; rent insurance, pro
tecting owners of buildings against bad ten
ants, steam boiler insurance against all damage
to property and loss or life resulting from ex
plosions; employers' liability assurance, guar
anteeing them against claims mado by employes
for injuries, etc.; marine insurance against loss
on ocean, lake and river; insurance on customs
duties, whisky In bond, etc: live stock insur
ance, including valuable dogs; plate glass In
surance, aPittsbnrg idea; insurance against
accidents of all kinds to tbe person; employes'
bond insurance, and several others, all of
which are doing a paying business, and by
timely assistance prevent many a man from
being forced to tho wall. The company last
named has been called upon during the last
few months to mako good losses amonnting to
about $2,5,000. caused by the dereliction of em
ployes for whom it was bondsman.
The Fifth avenue "hump," the removal of
which has caused an endless amount of discus
sion pro and con, is all that remains of tbe emi
nence mado memorable by the defeat of a reg
ment of Scotch Highlanders under Maior
Grant by a body of French and Indians Sep
tember 14, 1758. One of the incidents of this
battle has been perpetuated by a survivor. "As
Major Lewis was advancing with his men he
met a Scotch Highlander in full flight, and on
inquiring of him how the battle was going, tho
panic-stricken soldier replied: 'We are beaten,
and I have seen Donald Macdonald up to his
hunkers in mud and a' the skin off his head ' "
He had been scalped. No one sticks in tbe
mud there now, but there may be some scalp
ing before the vexed question of hump or no
hump receives its quietus.
Ex-Mayor George Wilson is tearing down
his old house on Smithfield street, adjoining
tbe Marine Bank, and will erect a new one for
business purposes on the same site. In this
connection it may be mentioned that there is a
good inquiry for property in that vicinity, for
which the prospect ot having the postofflce
there some time is mainly responsible. Mr.
Wilson was Mayor in the early sixties.
The following is from tbe Southern Lumber
man: Pittsburg is making an effort to Interest
New York City in a new feature of iron manu
facture. Mr. S. S. Marvin, President of the
W estern Pennsylvania Exposition Society, has
written to Mayor Grant, of New York, remind
ing him that Pittsburg manufacturers are pre
pared to construct a class of portable iron
buildings which would be particularly suitable
for the proposed centennial in the metropolis
in 1S92. Machinery Hall on the Exposition
grounds is a sample of the buildings referred
to by Mr. Marvin, and is the first of the kind
ever constructed in this country. It is a
marvel in itself t, being constructed of cast iron
and glass, with a slate roof. It is a portable
building, and could be removed to any desired
locality. Some of the most noteworthy features
in tbe building are the panels in the sides of
the structure. Some of these castings are
4x12 feet in dimensions, half an inch in thick
ness, and are cast In artistic designs. The
window sashes are cast with 10 to IS lights In
one piece. A great deal of the work about
the building is of a character never attempted
A LITTLE SOFTER.
The Bears how Their Hands In tho Iiocnl
The only stocks making any sort of preten
sions to activity yesterday were La Nona,
Philadelphia Gas, Electric, Wheeling Gas and
Airbrake. All sold at slight concessions. There
was very little support to the marker. The
best features were Pittsburg, Allegheny and
Manchester Railway and Central Traction, both
of which scored advances. The rest of the list
was featureless, a
A broker gave tbe following explanation of
tbe prevailing dulless: "This is an off time for
stocks. It is between two seasons and investors
have not made up their minds what to do. A
great many people are waiting for their quar
terly interest and dividends for capital to work
on. Fear of tight money is also a depressing
factor. I do not think we will feel it here, but
the mere talk of it makes investors bearish.
These influences must pass away before there
can be much of a revival."

ness About Tight Money.
Checking to make quarterly settlements was
tbe bright soot in tbe local banking situation
yesterday,tbe exchanges footing up $2,852,714 65
and the balances S521.S97 35. The demnd. for
loans indicated steady progression in this line,
and rates were firm at 67, with occasional
shading either way, but less than formerly.
There was no scarcity of f nnds. A cashier
said tbe advance in rates in New York was con
fined to stock collateral, and did not materially
affect commercial paper. It was intended, he
thought, to force Secretary Windom to bid
higher for bonds.
The gentleman added: "Mr. Windom is up
to this scheme. He has declared over and over
again bis readiness to give all needed relief to
the commercial interests of tho country, but
will do nothing for tbe special benefit of Wall
street. Business is not suffering. Money is
already returning from the South and West.
Tho attempt to get up a corner in it will fail."

OH Anchored Very Close to tbe Dollar Line
The oil range yesterday was very narrow.
The opening was 99, tho highest 99&, and the
lowest and closing 99. The market was utterly
featureless, and seemed anchored around 99.
There were a few small sales of cash oil at
R helow November.
Pipe line receipts for September show a fall
ing off of about 2,000 barrels a day as compared
with the previous month and this notwith
standing tbe big wells about which so much
has been said. To counteract the effect of tbe
loss of production the bears point to the weak
ness of refined and tight money in New York.
This mixes the situation so badly as to demand
the services of a Philadelphia lawyer to
straighten it out.
Whether the return to the system of daily
deliveries will help trade remains to be seen,
but in tbe opinion of many brokers it will
make no di&erencc, since the market is en
tirely without outside support.

menu of Gold A Firm Close.
Nkw Yoke, October 2. The bullish feeling;
In the stock market was quite pronounced this
morning. Notwithstanding the condition of tbe
money market, the shipment of gold and Lon
don figures coming higher, and the foreign
houses being liberal purchasers, the confidence
in the immediate future found expresyjbn in
higher opening figures, and on a moderate
business further advances in the early
dealings. The improvement in tbe open
ing prices over last evening's figures extended
to per cent, though Wheeling and Lako
Erie preferred was exceptional with a loss
of per cent, at 70. The dealings were
rather restricted, however, and Atchison, Read
ing, Louisville and Nashville, and St. Paul
with Sugar refineries monopolized the greater
portion of the business done.
Tbe bullish feeling was most pronounced in
Atchison, and it rose 1 per cent in tbe first half
hour, with the rest of the list following. It
was then announced that another half million
gold bad been ordered for export by the Bel
monts, and the buying was checked. It was
asserted that the amount to go out would
be made up to $2,500,000, and though there was
no means of verifying the story, it made a very
Dad impression upon the room, and a reaction
was In order, which, while there was no pressure
to sell soon carried prices down to below tho
Tbe money market ruled tight at from B to
10 per cent,but there was plenty of funds at the
rates. Dullness became the leading feature lu
the market, and prices remained stagnant
until the afternoon, when an attack was made
upon New England bv the bears, which re
tires that stock to 43. a loss of 1 per cent from
its opening figure. Manhattan dropped 2 per

The money market eased off materially in the
last hour, and rates went down to 3 per cent, at
which it closed, and tbe buying showed Itself
again with tho result of developing a strong
tone once more, and prices again crept up

and the close was quiet and firm at close to

however, and the final changes are about
equally divided between gains and losses. Be
