Tuesdat. October li IS&
Interviews with our leading jobbers of
millinery goods develop the fact that trad6
in this line was never better at this season of
the year. The demand for piece coods and
ribbons has gone beyond expectations, and
while our jobbers laid in larger supplies
than usual iu these lines for fall trade, their
faith in the size of the trade was none too
large. The situation of the wholesale mil
linery trade cannot be better put than in the
language of a member of one of our leading
firms. Said he:
"By reference to our books I find that our
business yesterday was 75 per cent larger
than the corresponding day last year.
Though this increase was exceptional for
that day, the months of September and Oc
tober will show a decided advance on the
same months for 1888. The exposition has
been a decided help in bringing to us cus
tomers from points entirely new.
Lower Prices Rale.
"Nearly everything in our line is lower in
price than last year, the reduction ranging
from 10 to 20 ncr cent. The reduction in some
instances was brought abont by lowering quali
ty; in others by improved and cheaper facilities
for manufacturing goods, and then competi
tion has become so sharp In our business that
we are content with smaller profits, and try to
sell more goods than in the days of big mar
gins. The bulk of the goods t e handle are do
mestic, whereas 10 or 12 years ago we handled
foreign goods in larger proportion than homo
goods. Staple domestic coods are as good
every way as foreign. Of these, 90 per cent are
now made in this country.
"One of our main sources of supply in the
lino of ribbons and silks is Patterson, N. J.,
wbirh has developed a phenomenal trade in
this line the rast few years. It is within bounds
to say that one million dollars goes to Patterson
annually from Pittsburg millinery and dry
goods jobbers for silks and ribbons. One-third
of this amount comes to jobbers of millinerv.
One firm sent over 5100,000 to Patterson last
year, and our bills there will be larger this year
than last. The growth of the silk industry in the
United States of late years bns opened 'up new
avenues f or joung women, many of whom are
Making: n Nice1 Income
in getting np designs for silk patterns. Pre
miums ot S50 to $100 are offered by Patterson
firms for designs, which has called forth the
taste and ambition of graduates of the
schools of New York, and I know of one young
lady ho in this way is making from 100 to S150
"Though Patterson has the lead in manu
facturing coods in our line, and probablv man
ufactures two-thirds of the whnlo United
States Drodnrt. Allentown, of this State. Hart
ford, Conn., and other points are developing
this industry, and every year we are growing
more independent of the Old "World.
""There has been a wonderful development in
the coloring art, as well as in designs, in this
country in the past few years. We are still
behind in velvets and satins, ana some ex
tremely high novelties. The imported staple
goods we use will not now be above 10 per cent
of the total, and, as to values, the domestic
goods handled here in millinery lines, is more
than SO per cent of the total.
"In the lino of feathers, the fashion this
season runs more to ostrich feathers than last.
"We have handled abont as many ostrich as
fancy this season, while last year our trade was
mostly confined to fancy feathers."
A member of another jobbing millinery firm
was seen who talked in much the same strain.
In addition to the gentleman quoted above, the
second jobber interviewed reported that while
there has been a decline in most of millinery
goods, such -staples as hosiery and gloves are
stiffening, and that while Sentember trade vru
slack, October is booming, and has already
more than made up for lost time.

Chicago. There was good biding in wheat
during the early part of to-day's session within
a narrow range, prices varying scarcely more
than yselAc Some of the big local shorts were
covering, and there was considerable selling on
New York account. The opening was quiet,
with prices about He lower than yesterdaj's
closing, but the local f eelingwa rather bullish
and the market rallied slightly. Later prices
dropped off :, recovered again, but closed
easy, ii&iic lower than, yesterday.
For over an hour after the opening trading
continued pretty fair, and after that ruled
rather dull until inside figures were reached,
when bniing orders, about S1K6S2C for Decem

Corn ruled quiet the greater part of
the session, trading being largely local and fluc

was on the whole somewhat easier. There was

Oats were a trifle more animated, but a
weaker feeling developed, and prices declined
slightly. Trading was fair, but mostly in De

sell, and prices declined HK the market
closing easy at about inside figures.
The mess pork market was unchanged and
trading was limited. Prices favored sellers
without material change.
Very lutle bnsiness was reported in lard.

AN ALLEGHENY BOOM.
Over 200 Houses Built in the Fleas
ant Valley District This Year.
THE GREAT SCHENLEI ESTATE.
Groundless Fears That It Will be Worked
to Smash the Eealtj Market.
IT WOULD BE AN ELIXIR TO TEADE
In enumerating the districts which have
experienced building booms this year of
grace, that of which the Allegheny City ter
minus of the Pleasant Valley Bailway is
the center should not fie overlooked. The
improvements there or thereabouts have
been so great as to completely change the
anpearance ot the locality.
Over 200 houses, all of them dwellings,
have been erected there since January 1.
The majority of them are completed, and
the rest will be in a short time. The principal
builders have been the Keystone Land Com
pany and William McCreery. But few vacant
lots remain, and the most of them are situated
on the hilL Few places of equal area and pop
ulation can show such a record.
Kears are expressed in certain quarters, and
by men, too, whose opinions are entitled to
respect, that the opening up to purchase of the
great Schenley estate wonld either smash the
local real estate market, or cripple it so badly
that recovery would be the work of years.
There is no apparent reason for this pessimistic
view of the matter. Unimproved property has
been picked up so fast for a year or two that it
is comparatively scarce, and new sources ot
supply are needed to keep values within reason
able bounds, so that people of limited means
mechanics, artisans, and laboring men, may
have a chance to acquire homes. Whatever
has a tendency to prevent them from owning
the houses in which they live is a public
H the opening up of the Schenley or any
other property, shall have the effect of making
it easier for people inordinary circumstances to
become proprietors, let it be opened up regard
less of whether it will 'smash the market',' or
But what is the argument of those who affect,
to believo that the appearance of this land on
the market would cause a reaction in values?
It is, in short, that it would make the supply
greater than the demand, and that' to effect
sales concessions would have to be made. Is
this the fact or is it mere guesswork? If a
fact, it is a revelation to those who have kept a
close watch over real estate movements ever
since the revival from the crash of 1873, and
more especially for the past two or three years,
within which time a vast amount of property
has changed hands so much, indeed, that the
complaint of a scarcity 01 good building sites
has become chronic, and the majority of buyers
have had to go from five to eight miles from
the business part of the city for lots which
conformed to their views in situation and price.
This gave owners of urban land a great advan
tage over buyers, as it enabled them to dictate
prices. It did more and worse it completely
extinguished the hopes of the poor man ot
some day owning a home within the city limits.
This is a general statement of the case, and
the exceptions to it rather add to than detract
from its force. But admitting it to be only ap
proximately correct, it shows very clearly that
there is a dearth ot land at a price within the
reach of people of small means, and furnishes
an adequate reason why the opening up of a
new source of supply wonld be a public benefit.
In this connection another thing should bo
considered: "High prices make a slow market,
Several instances in proof of this might be
cited. A year or two ago there was an active
movement out Per.n avenue. Holders, think
ing that the tide was in their direction, and that
they conld get anything they asked for, ad
vanced values 15 to 25 per cent The result
was that buyers withdrew, and the property re
mained unsold. The lower part of the city is
also suffering from excessive valuation. The
lesson to be learned from these facts is that the
only way to maintain activity in real estate is
to keep values on a level with the demand, and
not so far in advance of it as to block transac
tions. Buyers are more careful than they formerly
were. At an auction sale of lots in a neighbor
ing borough not many years ago, so great was
the excitement and so clamorous the purchas
ers that they eagerly took anything that was
offered without looking at it, and with no
knowledge, personal or otherwise, of its loca
tion or environments, and when there was dan
ger that they wonld bo left ont in the cold they
made a personal appeal to the auctioneers, say
ing: "Mr. Auctioneer, please sell me a lot"
This was the last real estate craze that has af
flicted the-city. Business is conducted differ
ently now. Buyers are not going aronnd with
their eyes shut, taking everything that is of
fered them without reference to value, loca
tion or anything else. They go from one agent
to another in quest of bargains, the same as
purchasers of drygoods or other commodities.
They stand upon their dignity as buyers. This
is a good, healthy sign of a stable real estate
market, and while It makes a Doom impossible,
it is also a guarantee against an undue depres
sion. The opening up ot the Schenley estate, the
bulk of which is beyond Oakland, would throw
into the market one of the most desirable resi
dence districts in or near the city. It would
afford another and much-needed outlet to the
country of the urban population, to the great
benefit of business.which is sufferingforroom to
admit of expansion; and it would attract popn.
lation in the hope of securing homes at fair
prices. Rapid transit wonld quickly follow,
making it easily and quickly accessible to all
classes of people doing business in the old city.
This would stimulate the demand for bnildin;
sites, and it wonld soon be covered with houses.
The danger Is not that it would "smash the
market," but that it would lead to inflation,
and beget another craze, of all things the mest
undesirable. Still, this result is neither immi
nent nor urobable, since the throwing of this
vast property upon the market would occasion
no surprise. In fact its, effect has been dis
counted. It has been a possibility for years, but
in defiance of this menace, If such it be, real
estate has shown no sign of wavering; bnt has
steadily advanced as the demand increased, and
the supply of available property grew less.
The cry that the addition of so large a body
of land to the present supply of marketable
property would "smash the market" has no
more foundation in fact than the apprehension
ot onr fathers that the general introduction
and use of railroads would render horses use
less for draft Railroads opened up many op
portunities for business unthought of before,
and the putting of the Schenley estate into the
market will stimulate dealings in realty by the
diversion of capital from other forms of in
vestment, and by increasing the Interest of
buyers, who will have better opportuities for
There is nothing for real estate owners and
dealers to fear but much to hope from the
placing of these broad acres upon the market
The estate is detrimental to tlie welfare of the
city as it is. If sold off in small parcels and

A LIGHT DAI'S WORK.
Stock Brokers Still Waiting for tsometblnc
to Tarn Up.
The stock market yesterday was a chip off the
old block that is, it lacked snap as well as
other features necessary to make business.
There wero very few buying orders. Holders
seem to have reached a point where they will
neither sell nor buy except on a small scale.
It is said that the reason for this is that when
they loaded up they paid higher prices than
those now current This puts them in a hole,
and they must either sell at a loss or bold out
for an advance. If they do the latter they will
succeed In the end, for It is patent to everybody
that tbo present apathy cannot last much
longer. Brokers must do something or seek
other fields of activity. Any material change
in prices must be for the better.
The only stocks that showed any activity wero
Pleasant Valley, Electric La Norla, Philadel
phia and Wheeling Gas. Electric and the
gassers were fractionally weaker. La Noria
was firm at Ji, which was freely offered for it
Pleasant Valley was in active demand at 19. I

OIL MOTES TJP.
Tbo Specter of Scarcity Cnnses nu Active
nnd Bieber Market.
There was a pretty lively oil market yester
day, prices being higher and business better
than for a long time. It opened at 100, ad
vanced to 101K, declined to 100, recovered and
closed at 100. The advance was not in the
nature of a boom, but the natural result of the
ceaseless shortage which is making the stuff so
scarce that those wanting it must pay fairly
for it -
Trading was food at all of the exchanges.
Pittsburg, Oil City and New York were buy
ers until late, when the latter turned seller,
causing the slump at the close. The shorts did
considerable coverlnz during the day. A Bmall
amount of business was done in cash oil at
100. There was a good feeling at the close.
Monday's clearings were 290.009 barrels.
Field news was to the following purport: The
Gnsford Oil Company's ell. Acbeson, and
Kelly & Co.'s Hutson, are reported to be both
in the sand. If these wells come in they will
open up considerable territory in the South
and East The Stevenson Schmertz-Darrah
well is in the top of the sand. This is one of
the wells concerned in the Acbeson dispute.
If H. W. Acheson wins the suit all the oil the
well produces will go to film.

MONEY AGAIN TIGHT
And Railroad Shares Irregular and Weak
A Sharp Attack on the Sacnr
Trust Cotton Oil Strong
Final Prices Lower.
New York, October 15. The stock market
to-day was more active for the regular list but
qnietfor the trusts, the business done in the
unlisted stocks being confined to only four of
them, and only about one-half what it was yes
terday. There was great irregularity in the
market throughout the day, and stocks were
moving m opposite directions in different parts
of the list at the same time almost ill day long.
Money was in more urgent demand, and the
rata on call went up to 12 per cent at one time,
while the bulk of the business was done at 6
f Per cent
The bears were more active and decidedly
aggressive to-day, and their operations were
almost entirely responsible for the' changes in
quotations that were made, and while Missouri
Pacific was the principal point of attack, such
stocks as Louisville and Nashville, Union Pa
cific and the Gould specialties received special
attention. This weakened the general list, and
the result of the days' operations is generally
to leave prices fractionally lower than they
were last evening. Atchison sold ex-rigbts
which were quoted at i and later H and .
The stock, however, was quite strong, spec
ially in the early portion ot the day, upon the
announcement of the organization plan, and
heavy Boston bnying orders were said to have
been received, while for a time the stock was
in great demand in the loan crowd at 1-64 pre
mium. Cleveland. Columbus, Cincinnati and St
Louis and Chesapeake and Ohio seconds pre
ferred were also prominent bull cards in the
forenoon, but realizations at the improvement
gave an opportunity for considerable hammer
ing of the regular list, and these advances were
almost entirely wiped out at the close. Atchi
son not only lost all its early advance, bnt
scored a decline in addition. Missouri Pacific
was the feature of the market and pressnre
upon it was specially severe from the start, and
from 71; at the opening it was forced off with
frequent slight rallies to 68, but it recovered
to 63 at tho close.
Tlie other Gould properties were weaker, and
Manhattan and Western Union 'especially suf
fered. In the early morning, when the railroad
list was strong throughout the attack upon
Sugar was continued, and all the old rumors in
regard to the property were reiterated, with
the effect of knocking 'it down to 73. against
76 last evening, but it rallied quickly when
the railroad list became the objective point of
the bears and. was brought up again to the
opening figure, though it lost a Dortion of the
improvement at the close. The other trusts
did not sympathize with it to any appreciable
extent, and Cotton Oil was positively strong in
the early dealings.
The market continued heavy to weak
throughout the afternoon, and finally closed
rather heavy at the lowest prices of the day.
The list is almost invariably lower this even
ing, the advances being few in number and tor
insignificant fractions, while Sugar is down 2,
Manhattan a like amount, Missouri Pacific 1,
Louisville and Nashville 1 and Atchison and
Canada Pacific 1 per cent each.
Railroad bonds were quiet and devoid of spe
