I0CAL LIVE STOCK.
Leading Features of Markets at
East Liberty Yards.
PRIME CATTLE ACTIVE AKD FIRM.
All Low Grades Are Lower Because of Ex
SHEEP AEE STEADI AND HOGS WEAKEE
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch,
Wednesday, October 9. 1SS9. t
Once again these yards have been over
stocked with iow-grade cattle. Supplies
this week varied very little from last, the
total being close to 200 carloads tor the local
trade. Ot these about 25 loads were from
Chicago, which were in the main medium
and low-grade stock. Indiana furnished an
unusually large proportion of the inferior
cattle on the market this week. There were,
however, contributions from "West Virginia,
Kentucky, Tennessee and Illinois of the
same low grades.
In the supplies -were about 15 loads of
primes, weighing 1,450 to 1,500, which came
from Ohio' and Indiana. For this class of
cattle the market held up. to last week's
prices, with 4)c as the outside rate. .More
of this -quality than appeared could have
been sold, as buyers were on hand in Jarger
force than usnal. Xice tidy light butcher
stock also held up fairly well with last
A Natural Consequence.
Medium and low-grade cattle being in
supply above demand, the markets rnled
slow for this class, at a decline of 1015e
from last week's prices. Since Monday
prices bare been steadily weakening, and,
though at noon to-day this low-grade stock was
well cleaned up, the result was only reached by
liberal concessions to buyers. Those woo sold
on Monday are best off, since lower prices and
feed bills have brought down margins uDtit in
many instances no doubt margins hare been
entirely wiped out. There was a fair demand
for fresh cons, and those of high grade sold
readily at the outside ot the market
Advices from Kansas City and. Chicago are
that supplies of cattle are very heavy, and there
is little doubt that our markets will in the near
future receive a sufficient amonnt of the over
flow to hold pnecs down, especially for inferior
Sheep and Lambs.
The supply was little more than half of that
' of last week, and as a consequence markets
ruled strong at higher prices, especially for
good stock. The short supply was the saving
factor of this week's markets. With a run
equal to that of last week, the bottom would,
no doubt, have dropped out. As it was, only
choice grades moved actively, and these were
largely in the minority.
The season of the j car is now here when it is
not an easy thing to obtain tender, juicy mut
ton, as the grade of sheep and Iambs out of
which this quality ot flesh comes is mainly re
served for wool purposes.
Hog Drifting Downward.
The run so far has varied very little from
last week. The drift of the markets has 'been
downward at all live stock centers for a few
At Chicago the outside rate for a day or two
past has been H SO.
At Liberty the range to-day was $1 304 50,
with markets quiet
The quality of hogs coming from nearby is
not up to standard. Most of those received
yesterday were what is known in the trade as
grassers, which have not received a sufficiently
generous allotment of corn.
In the West, where corn abounds, there is a
more liberal allowance of gram to the porker,
and hence Supplies from that source bring bet
ter prices than those raised nearer home.
Tuesday and Wednesday are the days for home
bogs at 1 jberty, hence markets at latest ac
counts were slow. The Western supplies
HluUi came during the latter part of the week
are expected to tone up the markets.

Chicago The speculative side of the wheat
market was rather a surprise to-day, ruling dull
and weak early and very strong and more active
later. Traders were rather puzzled at the ac
tion of the market Operators no doubt found
themselves short toward the close and were
anxious to cover. Some foreign buying of fu
tures was mentioned. A prominent local trader
was the principal seller around 83c for Decem
ber, and another large operator, together with
some other local bull contingents, took the of
ferings. The market opened easy, and prices receded
Kc below yesterday's closing, after which
the market advanced JsQKe, ruled steady for
some time, with a later rally of c "more, and
closed about Klc higher thau yesterday's
An easier feeling was manifested in corn,
transactions being at lower prices within a nar
row range. There was considerable pressure
to sell May, this future receiving the most at
tention, there being one trade of 100,000 bushels
at 32c The temper of the local crowd was
bearish and offerings at times were quite heavy.
There was also quite free selling by receivers.
A good many orders were on tbe market to
change tbe nearer months to May at about 2ic
premium for the latter month. Tbe market
opened at about yesterday's closing quotations,
and under liberal offerings sold off Jfc, rallied
He, became firmer and closed about the same
as yesterday. '
The oats market showed further depression
to-dav under the Ianre offerings bv longs, who
again unloaded freely. The resnlt was another
)4.c break in prices, which earned the market
down to about the low est point touched in a
decade. Cash and October receded to 1S
lS!c, and at one time May sold as low as 21c,
Little interest was manifested in the market
for hog products and the feeling .was compara
tively steady. Only orders were scarce, and
local operators were not inclined to do much
business. Some mess pork was accepted on
October under protest and 1,000 barrels were
sold out to close trades.
Prices for lard and ribs exhibited very little
change, and trading was confined to small

EEALTY ALL EI&HT.
A Lull on the Surface, but a Great
Deal Going on Down Below.
VALUES ARE STABLE AS A ROCK.
Conservative Methods of Investors a Safe
guard Against Reaction. '
HOWTHELITTLB BROWN JUG IS MAPE
During; i lull in the great battle of
Leipsic, Napoleon was asked by one of his
generals: "Is the fight over?" At that
moment a thunderous roar from 500 cannons
told him that the conflict was still unde
cided. The real estate market has been
resting for a few days. The rattle and roar
of the spring and summer hare sunk to a
gentle murmur. There is a lull. "What
does it signify?
Eeal estate, like every other commodity
that is bought and sold, is subject to spells
of activity and depression. It woulo be
unreasonable to expect it to be forever on
the jump. The iron trade is dull at times.
It has just Recovered Jrom a long period of
inaction. Every other interest has its nps
and downs. Beat estate is not an excep-
tion. It has been remarkably buoyant for
a year or two. A brief respite from the
feverish activity of the past will do it good.
It will give investors time to look over the
field and mature their plans for tbe winter and
spring campaign. The battle is not over.
There Is only a lull calm on the surface but
The cautious manner, in which investors are
proceeding shows that they want to look before
they leap. This is a full guarantee against a
reaction. It wonld be easy to start a boom. A
few capitalists could combine and start a
speculative craze that would rival or surpass
that of 1873, which ruined hundreds. But this
is not their object They see in real estate a
good opportunity for Investment and tbey are
treating it on business principles, so as to main
tain values and allow enhancement to keep pace
with the increased demand. This insures a
permanent and stable market It eliminates
the element of uncertainty, and gives confi
dence to buyers. A great deal of the land that
has been handled the past year has passed into
the possession of people who have put up
houses on it, in which they are living. It is out
of the market This is an additional element of
strength and activity.
There is a great deal of desirable land for
sale in the city and suburbs, and the demand
for it is increasing with the rapid growth of
population. But prices, while firm, show very
little disposition to advance, except in special
cases, where property is exceptionally well
located for business or residence purposes, or
is wanted to round out other parcels, or to
maintain the uniformity of a neighborhood, as
at Bonlevard Place, Benvenue, Oakland and a
few other places. The bulk of the property on
the market is held at about the same figures as
were demanded a year ago. There has been no
From the foregoing hasty survey of the situ
ation it will be seen that the market for realty
is in a healthy condition; that there is no boom
but a good demand giving promise of a brisk
fall and winter business, and that valuations
are holding their own, with no indications of a
reaction, but, on tbe contrary, with a slightly
hardening tendency. This is a good time to
buy. Land will be worth more and bring more
a year hence.
The manufacture of pottery is a largo and
growing industry in this country, its strong
holds being East Liverpool, O., Trenton, N. J.,
and Nashville, Tenn., where it has only quite
recently been introduced. The capital Invested
in this business in the United States is about
$8,000,000. Twenty or 30 years ago only the
coarser articles of pottery were produced in
this country. Now tbe product is equal in
quality and originality of design to almost any
The process of manufacture is interesting.
It differs slightly, as each manufacturer has a
method of his own In working but' details, but
in the main tbey all operate on the same gen
eral lines. The crude clay is put into a large
tank, with Water sufficient to work it and is
thoroughly mixed and crushed by arms at
tached to a vertical shaft driven by steam.
From this tank it parses in liquid form through
a fine wire screen, called a "laun." This screen
has 30 mesbes to the Inch and a rapid oscillat
ing motion. It is next pumped (by means of a
jet pump) to large vats in the second story,
where It is "cooked" by steam pipes until the
water is driven ont and it assnmes a proper
consistency for workiifg. It is then ready for
shaping into any desired form.
Everybody is familiar with the appearance
and uses of "Tbe little'brown jug." It is made
in four pieces. A suitable amount of material
is clipped into a revolving mold which forms
tbe outside bottom half of the jug. The inside
is formed by a kind of a wooden paddle at
tached to a movable horizontal lever. The up
per part is formed in the same manner in a
different mold, fitted to the bottom and welded
by a wet sponge held on the inside of the re
volving vessel. The mouth is formed in a sepa
rate mold and attached In the same manner ex
cept It is "welded" on the outside. The handle
is then put on and the vessels set on short boards
in a series of large racks to dry a few days be
fore beingfired. The firing is done in large brick
furnaces of the style called "np-draft," a much
more costly arrangement than the ordinary
open furnace. The vessels, after being dipped
in the glazing mixture and having the same
"squirted" into the inside by a steam jet, are
placed in "saggers," an oblong flask made of
the same material and shaped like a cook stove
boiler, and of sizes to hold two pieces each.
These "saggers" are placed in the furnace, one
on top of another, and made air-tight by a
joint of clay. When the furnace is full the door
is sealed up and the firing begins, slowly at
first and gradually increased for 36 to 72 hours,
according to the kind of ware. The furnace
doors are then hermetically sealed with fire
bricks and bats cemented with mortar made of
the coarse clay from the screen or "laun," and
in four or five days is ready to be "drawn."
Other wares are producod in tbe same way,
with variations as to firing and length ot time
they are left in theturnace. Of course tbe
finer the ware the greater the skill and care
required in its manufacture. Some of tbe
finest clays in the world have within a few
years been discovered in Tennessee, Missouri,
Indiana and two or three other States.
' There is matter fbr reflection in the following
remarks of a writer In Mouse I'aintinc: "The
author of the 'Breadwinners' describes the
secret anger of a carpenter who was not spoken
to, or even noticed, by the rich man in whose
library he was working. The employer in this
case was not a purse-proud man; be had in
herited his wealth, he bad been a soldier in the
war for the Union, he had devoted bis life to
the benefit of bis fellow-men, he meant no dis
respect, but he supposed that there was nothing
in common between tbe mechanic and himself.
If a clerk had entered the same room who
worked perhaps for lessthan half the wages
the carpenter earned he would have met witn
a courteous reception, as it would have been
assumed that he was an educated man.
"This is a supposititious case, butl ask if it is
an exaggerated one? In looking backover your
own lives if you, as some of yon probably did,
commenced yonr life's work when you were
lads I think it will be found that ycu were ad
vanced to be foremen, that you struck ont for
yourselves as master mechanics, not only be
cause yon may have been good workmen, bnt
also because yonr parents gave yon a good edu
cation. If yon respect your own calling, If yon
wish others to respect it remember that the
Amenean mechanic needs to be an educated

Electric Hearing In Old Qnco A Drop In
Elecir)o continued its npward movement
yesterday. In the afternoon 46 wu bid tor It
and 43 asked. There were no transactions. Or
ders to bny instead of sell are coming In: Con
fidence is almost completely restored. Forest
Oil also scored an advance. Central Traction
was little weaker. Philadelphia Gas was
stea'dy on the supposition that the usual quar
terly dividend, 2 per cent, would be declared.
The other gas stocks were weak. The total
sales were 125 shares.
The apathy in local securities is attributed to
tbe fact that everybody loaded up during the
summer in expectation of a fall boom. Conse
quently brokers aro not in a position to buy.
and, as there are no new buyers coming In,
there is nothing to make a market

The OH Market Almost Ready to Hnndln
There was no oil market yesterday worth
sneaking of. The price was bid up a little by
Oil City soon after the opening, but very light
selling turned the tide. The opening was 99c,
tbe highest 99 and tbe lowest and closing
Tuesday's clearings figure on the board as
76,000 barrels. But as sales count both ways,
tbe amonnt of oil handled was only 38,000 bar
rels. This1 shows a truly discouraging state ot
affairs in a business which, only a tew years
ago, was counted one of tbe greatest in tbe
world. The "lambs," or such of them as sur
vive, are having their revenge.

Easier Money and Good Serine by London
Houses Strcnjcthtn tbe Backbone of
Wall Street A Strong
and Active Close.
New Yore, October 9. The stock market
to-day was much stronger in tone than for any
day during tbe past two weeks and material
advances were -scored In all the active stocks.
The feature of the market was tbe buying by
London houses, though these purchases did not
have much effect after tbe noon hour. The
strength of our market yesterday was reflected
in higher prices from London this morning.
At the opening London houses were the most
conspicuous bidders for stocks, and succeeded
in opening the market at from lo per cent
higher figures than it closed last evening.
The impetus of the toreign purchases was
seen most in Louisville and Nashville, and that
stock rose 1 per cent but tbe resistance to the
rise offered by the bears was so strong that al
ter a slight upward movement in the general
list prices were forced off to from i to 1 per
cent belpw the opening figures. Sugar refin
eries are most prominent in the decline. The
decllnef however, met with sucbdetermined re
sistance that the pressure was removed before
noon, and Louisville and Nashville again took
the lead, followed by Western Union, which
was very favorably influenced by the pub
lication of the annual report
The news of, the day was in the main favor
able. As the day wore along the npward move
ment became more pronounced and Sugar
Trust became once more one of the leading
strong stocks. Among the specialties Cleve
land, Columbus, Cincinnati and St. Louis was
specially promluent iif the upward movement
becoming active on buying, which looked like
that of insiders, accompauied by rumors of
large gains inj the 'earnings. Money eased off
to below tbe legal rate later in tbe day, and the
early sellers became alarmed and took in some
of their short sales, which again stimulated
prices, and the. upward movement made ma
terial progress In all portions of tbe list
Beports that rates would be advanced to and
from Missouri river pointshelpecl tbe Grangers.
There was some realizing on the profits accrued
during the day in, tbe last hour, but the market
recovered its tone toward the close, which was
active and strong at or near the best prices of
the day. The declines to-night are very few in
number and a loss of 114 Per cent in San Fran

not very brisk at these figures. Tbe demand
for sweet potatoes is only fair. The same Is in
