; Variety in Vegetable Lines is Cur

: CALIFORNIA FRUIT TO THE FRONT.
Scpply of Eish Grade Oysters and Fish
Short of Demand.
FLOEAL OUTLOOK KETEE BRIGIITUE
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch,!.
Friday, October IS, ISS9. J
In the vegetable line tomatoes, beans,
encumbers and cauliflower are scarce and
higher. Beets, parsnips, turnios and cabbage,
with potatoes, Irish and sweet, now haTe the
field in this line. Celery is coming to the
front in excellent quality at 5c a bunch or
50c per dozen. In fruit lines, aside lrom
grapes, the main dependence is on Califor
nia. Though the supply of crapes is short
in the territory around Pittsburg, Ohio,
New Tork and California are contributing
to our markets sufficient for all needs.
Quince? are scarce and higher. Peaches
and pears are practically oyer for this sea
son. Heavy frosts of late haTe stiffened prices
of tomatoes, but there is still plenty for all
needs, though the quality has degenerated
in the past week.
Good Ojstera Still Scarce.
The supply of high grade oysters is still
below the demand, and prices at Baltimore
lure been advanced fully 20 per centon this
grade the past week. Here the advance has
not been so great, dealers being reluctant
to shove markets up until there is an abso
lute necessity for it. The supply of fish is
still short, but is gradually creeping up to the
demand, and will, no doubt, soon be there.
September storms along the coast appear to
haTe driven fish out into deep water, and the
catch has been light for several weeks. A few
weeks ago herring were very plenty. Of late
they have been very scarce.
The trade in noultrv. butter and escs pre
sents no new features since last Saturday.
Game begins to come in more freely. Part
ridges, squirrels and plovers have been seen on
the stalls within the pst week.
flowers still Looking: Up.
In floral lines trade is steadily on the gam.
Society events have made stronger demands on
the trade this wcekthan last, and all signs point
to great activity from now until after the holi
days. Chrysanthemums have put in their first
appearance for the season within a few days.
As the frost nips home gardens in the bud, the
florist's occupation booms, and this industry is
now at the entrance of its best time of the year.

Chicago Trading was rather light and
no interesting features presented. Most
of the business was on behalf of local
traders. A trader prominently identified with
this market was a good buyer for both De

Some selling on foreign acconnt was reported.
The opening was rather steady slightly be

THE OHIO OIL MEN IS GOOD SPIRITS
Rumor is not always reliable, but it Is re
sorted to sometimes in the absence of specific
information concerning passing events. Bet
ter a rumor than nothing, if it be harmless.
It shows that people are talking, if not act
ing. Bumor is a surface indication; if one
gets belcw it he will generally find some
thing. There are exceptions to this propo
sition, of course. For instance, Black &
Baird deny the published statement that
they are working up a boom on Ninth street
by gobbling all or a Large part of the prop-ei-ty
on that thoroughfare. A short time
ago they sold a house and lot there for
$12,000. This is the only recent transac
tion on Ninth street by tbem or anybody else
To make the denial still stronger, they say
there is no buying movement on Ninth street
at all, either by individuals or firms. 80 mnch
for the boom. The story that the Guffeys have
leased all the territory north and west of the
Arbuckle oil well is another instance of rumor
going wrong. It is denied by James W. Drape,
who said yesterday that he owned a large farm
there which had not been leased, and he knew
of others in the samecondition. Like Davy
Crockett, Rumor will have to pick ber flint and
try it again.
The local lumber trade,while not particularly
active, is in good shape, with prices steady to
firm, and moderate stocks, but larger than a
week or ten days ago, with tbe exception of
bard wood, which is very scarce so much so as
to retard building operations in some cases.
There is considerable of it on the way, but the
car famine on all the roads leading to the lum
ber regions makes deliveries slow and uncer
tain. Should the winter be an open one, build
ing will be prosecuted with slight interruption
This will insure a good lumber market all
season. Despite the efforts of Southern pro
ducers to boom yellow pine, the white variety
still has the call. One objection to yellow pine
is that it Is hard to put down and work, and
therefore more expensive. Dealers are already
figuring on stocks for next year, as it is proba
ble building will be on a larger scale than ever
The directors of the Pittsburg and Wilkins
burg Street Railway Company, which was re
cently incorporated, will hold a meeting No
vember 1 to consider plans for tbe constrnction
of the new line. It will tbeu be decided what
motor is to be used, but it is thought that elec
tricity will be selected. Since the granting of
the charter a number of streets have been
Stricken off tbe original route and others added
thereto, the object of the re-arrangement being
to shut out future competing lines. The com
pany proposes to begin the work of construc

A Findlay, O., correspondent writes: "Every
oil operator one meets here these days is full of
hope of better prices for the near future. The
stocks in the Pennsylvania region have
dwindled to a minimnm and with all their
hunting it has been found impossible in that
country to maintain tbe daily output at any
thing like the requirements of the trade If
'this product, therefore, can be utilized, as cer
tain parties claim it can, there is some other
cause for the bullish feeling extant. Of course
tho Wood county pool is as yet
only partially developed. There are hun
dreds, and it might be said thousands of acres
of territory yet to be drilled that will probably
prove as richly productive as any that has yet
been developed. The oil in iron tanks amounts
to more than 10,000,000 barrels. This would not
prove a very great burden, however, should
there come a time, which is as inevitable as the
return of winter, when there would be a regu
lar daily draught upon it for fuel purposes.
The only question that the producers of North
western Ohio have to seek a solution for is the
uses to which this commodity can and will be
Pittsbubo, October 18.
To the Financial Editor or The Dispatch:
I read tbe article in The Dispatch in re
gard to the effect of putting the Schenley
property on the market, and agree with the
opinion therein expressed that it would be a
benefit instead of a detriment to the real es
tate market. I think it is jnst what is needed
to keep the market in a good, steady condition,
on the theory that the more land the more
buyers. It would arouse a feeling of competi
tion, and prevent the possibility of a boom,
which would inevitably prove disastrous.
There is no good reason for thinking it wonld
"smash tbe market." Those who bold this
opinion might with equal reason say the estab
lishment of two or three more drygoods stores
here wonld ruin that business, or that another
mill wonld smash the Iron trade. In my opin
ion the throwing of the Schenley property on
the market wonld stimulate business, to the
great advantage of both buyer and seller.
Amongjother business enterprises projected
at Youngstown is a mammoth steel plant, to

facturers interested in it are the Andrews Iron
Company, the Trumbull Iron Company and the

have built a small furnace and expect to com

have also erected a mill for crushing the ore
There is said to be an abundance of good tin
ore within two miles of the furnace. They

Tbe New York JPott of yesterday says in its
financial article: Tbe total amount of cur
rency transferred from New YorK to the "West
and South by orders through the United States
Treasury in the week ending last night w as
only 1,000,000, acalnst S2,389,000 in the previous
weok and 4,878,000 in the preceding week.
This shows a large falling off, and as New
York Exchange is now only 25 cents per SI, 000
discount in Chicago, a rate which is
too small to justily the regular ship
ments of currency by express. It may
be assumed that tbe movement of currency
to the interior has practically ceased. Conse
quently no further pressure on tho money
market need be expected from that cause,
inquiry upon the subject leaves little room tor
doubt that tbe money market has been manipu
lated by tbe withdrawal of money from banks
and from the market for the purpose of put
ting up the rates of interest, and this has been
done by capitalists and banks, both corporate
and private So far as tbe banks and bankers
are concerned, it can only be said that they
have been exceedingly prompt to call in call
loans and put tbe money out again at the high
est figures attainable, and their only object bas
probably ieen to get the most for their money.
But this has given tbe bears a great oppor
tunity to bid tbe rates up. This forenoon
money was 8 to 10 per cent, but shortly after
12 it was suddenly bounced up to 15 per cent,
and an insignificant amount loaned at.that. but
before 230 o'clock it was down to 7, 8 and 9 per

yesterday, with the balances out of due propor
tion, they footin g up S264.612 95, while the ex
changes were S2,202,3S5 80. There was a fair in
quiry for accommodations at the standard
rates, and depositing was liberal. A cashier
said tbe bank surplus was not accumulating, but
that tbe outflow and inflow were about equal.
An Eastern expert, who has looked tbe mat
ter up, says: Ten years ago, in October, 1878,
the paper currency aggregated 8682,815.520. di
vided almost equally between national bank
and Treasury notes. Tbe volume of the latter
has remained practically unchanged, but the
national bank currency has fallen from 335.
134,504 to 5199,779,011, a decline of 135,355,493 in
ten years. Tho place of the national bank
notes bas been filled by silver and silver certifi
cates, wbich have also supplied tho fresh de
mand created by the natural increase of trade
Tho silver certificates now outstanding amount
to S276.619.715, or 76,840,701 more than the na
tional bank notes retired.
Probably very few persons not in some way
connected with the banking business realize
bow the national bank notes are disappearing

of our currency.

Only Microscopic Changes In the Oil Market
Yesterday's oil market differed in no material
respect from that ot the previous day. There
was a little buying in New York early, but later
that center went over entirely to the bear side,
and what it dumped was snapped up by Oil
City. It is hinted that a clique of operators on
the different exchanges are at the head of the
Oil City movement, with the object of corner
ing the stuff and forcingan advance. The only
important transaction here was by McKelvey,
who sold 10,000 barrels. With this exception,
local trading was strictly professional The
range of prices was as narrow as a French or
Spanish Bourbon, the opening being 100 tbe
highest and closing lOOJg, and the lowest 100.
A new well is being put down atZeltenople.
It is not far distant from the well that caused
such great excitement a month ago, which was
ruined by a collapse of the casing and the con
sequent flooding of water. It is believed tbe
E resent well will open an extension of tbe Am
erson field, neat Harmony, and is looted upon
as an important venture. The Arbuckle well
was reported doing about 600 barrels a day.

A Flood of Baying Order from the Bis
Town Checks the Downward Career
of Railroad 6hares Tbs
New Yobk, October 18. Tbe stock market
was again dnll to-day, but the tone of the deal
ings was in marked contrast to that of yester
day. While the final changes are generally for
fractions, they were mostly in tho direction of
higher figures. The money question was active
in the first few minutes; but this was neutral
ized by the even buying orders from abroad,
which started the shorts to covering and com
pletely changed the temper of the speculation
for the time being. Tbe anxiety over the
higher rates for money prevalent yesterday,
led to a weakening, which was made at conces
sions from last night's figures of from to X,
and pressure caused some further slight de
clines in the early trading.
The sudden flood of buying orders from Lon
don, however, checked the decline, and as it
was continued tbe shorts became frightened
and rushed to cover, which soon gave a strong
trend to the market and prices materially lm-
S roved before the close of the first hour.
Torthern Pacific preferred was the feature,
rising from 71 to 73 on utterances of Mr.
Ives, In which he stated that he owned as much
stock as before the election, and that he had
every confidence in the new board. The Trusts
were specially strong also on the announce
ment of the application of tbe American Cot
ton Oil Company for an Increase in capital, with
the utterances of Mr. Thomas leading to tbe
impression that the Trust was to come into the
The money situation again came to the front
after 2 o'clock, and the same tactics as usual
being employed, tbe rate on call was run up to
15 per cent after 12 o'clock, which checked tbe
advance, but the undertone of strength was
such that little impression was made upon
prices outsme 01 a tew specialties.
The most marked movement was In St Paul
preferred, which was offered down In the
absence of buyers, but most of the loss was
iug, and under the lead of Missouri Pacific a
material recovery took place. The close was dull
but firm at close to best prices of tbe day. Tbe
Grangers were rather heavy throughout the
day and Burlington and St. Paul were both
subjected to considerable pressure, but with
out any effect after tbe early depression. The
only important changes, for the day were ad
vances. Sugar rose 2, Cotton Oil and Northern
Pacific preferred 1 each and Lackawanna and
Manhattan 1 per cent each.
The dealings in railroad bonds were devoid
of feature as nsual, and on a basis of only
$679,000 a few important declines were scored.
