Visitors From Korth Hoosierdom at
the Grain Eichan?c
BEBIKISCEKCB OF SCHENLEY PAKE
Why General O'Hara 'Wanted to Make a
Gift of These Lands.
A MAXBFACTOEER'S DREAD OF A BOOM
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch, 1
Tuesday, November 6, ISS9.
Among the visitors at the Grain Exchange
to-day were Messrs. J. D. Thayer, of War
saw, Ind., and J. "W. Thompson, of Lees
burg, Ind., both operaters in grain and hay.
Mr. Thayer was formerly a grain dealer in
this city. Concerning crops in Northern
Indiana, he said:
"The yield of potatoes was never before
so large. From one little station near "War
caw 1,000 bushels of potatoes were shipped
to Pittsburg the past month. The crop of
oats is also extra large and quality very fine.
The price which rarmers receive for their oats
in Warsaw is 18 to 20 cents per bushel, and at
these figures they are not active.
"Potatoes arc sold by the wagon load at 25c
per bushel. Wheat is more than an average
crop, and quality is far above the average.
Not Much Fruit.
"While there ts an abundance of vegetables,
the fruit crop is very light, with the exception
"Trade is very quiet In our section, there be
ing an over abundance of stuff and scarcity of
money. We find it best to ship our grain and
produce East, as markets are better this way
than in Chicago. But shippers ot potatoes to
Pittsburg this season have found poor pick
ings. Freight bills ate up most of the profits.
"Northern Indiana has never enjoyed a more
bountiful season, taken altogether, than that
just closed, but the great trouble is to get any
thing for the stuff. We have had much more
E rentable seasons when the crops were much
ghter ana poorer in quality."
A Real Estate Itrm.
The following is communicated by Mr. S
Chadwick. a Twenty-first ward dairyman:
"The lands which Mrs. Schenley has donated
to the city for park purposes were at the begin
ning of this century the property of her grand
father. General O'Hara, one time Quarter
master at Ft. Pitt. General O'Hara had a
great mania for real estate, and was most of
his life what would be called land poor, finding
it oftentimes difficult to pay his taxes, which
were hardly as large those days as now. Dur
ing the tight times following the war of 1S12
the tax question became a very serious one. The
father of Mr. S. Chadwick was the owner of a
farm at Oakland joining the Squirrel Hill
' tract of General O Hara. The latter at one
time offered his possessions in that section to
the senior Chadwick on condition that lie
would assume the tax encumbrance.
Chance Twlxt Sow and Then.
"General O'Hara passed away in 1S19. From
the .close of the Revolutionary War until his
death he was the foremost real estate owner of
this city and vicinity. His faith in Pittsburg's
future must have been very large, but as is so
often the case, others reaped where he so
patiently sowed. It is a coincidence, that the
property which three-quarters of a century
ago was offered as gift to the man who would
pay the taxes is now given to the city without
money anil without price by a descendant,
when its value is measured by millions."
"A representative of one of our great iron
industries, which turns out a specialty, said to
day that business in their line was never before
in as healthy a condition. His words are
well worth quoting. Saia he: "I have known
seasons when profits were three times as large
as tney are now, on the tonnage. But we are
now able to turn nut a much larger amount
of .products and have a ready market for it all.
From 1878 to 18S3 we had a great boom, which
in the end proved disastrous, for thincs kept
climbing up until a collapse came, and there
followed a lew years of dull trade. The Drcscnt
condition 01 tnings is mucn better for us and
all than the high kiting which will inevitably
bring a reaction. If business will just keep
along as it is without any further boom I will
be entirely satisfied. What is most to be
dreaded now is another "boom, and already
there are omens of this in some lines of busi
ness." - --

and More Active Market, But
OIL'MOBK DIVIDED IN OPINION.

Park Cautioned to Go Slow.
HARVMiOOS GOLD FIELDS IN AFRICA
Although yesterday was an "off day" In
a business sense, the Exchange being closed,
transactions in the regular lines of trade
were nearly as heavy as nsnal, what was

The talk among stock brokers as they sat
in their offices or gathered in little groups
on the streets, wis hopeful, not only of an
improvement in values, but of a more active
market during the rest of the year, their
reasons being that all danger of a monetary
stringency has vanished, and that a large
number of investors who unloaded natural
gas etocks dnring the recent panic will soon
be wanting to get them back. Another ele
ment of confidence in that future is the prob
ability of an active demand for electric and the

Operators in petroleum were divided in opin
ion as to the future .course1 of the market.
While some insisted that statist(cs of demand
and supply were a sufficient warrant for a far
ther advance, others were less confident, and
pointed to former experiences under similar
circumstances to strengthen their position.
One of the latter voiced the sentiment of many
others when he said: "If it be true, as reported
from New York, that the Standard is manipu
lating the maiket, we may give up all hope, not
only of a further advance, but of being able to
hold prices where they are. By permitting
crude to reach a respectable figure the mo
nopoly has bronght refined up to a high price,
where it will probably hold for some time, not
withstanding a decline in crude, on the prin
ciple that it is easier to make than to break
prices. When the Standard wants cheap oil it
always finds a way to get it
"Another element of uncertainty is the Ohio
product. There are reports that it is being
refined and made equal to Pennsylvania oil.
Indeed, two of the heaviest refiners of Ohio
oil. both of them millionaires, offer to guarantee
every gallon sold by themto be equal to any in
the market, and they say they will soon be able
to produce it in unlimited quantities. While
this would not permanently depress the mar
ket, the first effect of such a large addition to
the marketable stock would be to lower values.
All of these considerations have more or less
weight, and inject an element of uncertainty
into the market, weakening confidence and re

In no humor to pay fancy prices, even for the
sake of the comfort to be derived from such a
breathing spot as it is proposed to make there.
Said a Fourth avenue .agent : '"The natural
effect of a park out there will be to stiffen
prices, but holders should not be too greedy
and block improvement at the start by exorbi
tant demands. It will be a desirable place to
live, and will soon fill up with a good class of
people if prices are kept within bounds; but
if fancy figures be the rule, buyers will go

Recent accounts of gold discoveries in the
Transvaal Republic ot South Africa go far to
confirm the-theory that the gold mines yet tojbe
explored in South Atrica may be as productive
as those were in California or Australia. One
town has sprungnp. Johannesburg, on the edge
of the gold fields, that now contains 40,000 in
habitants. The yield in six months of the pres
ent year of these mines has been 4,000,000.
These mines are several hundred miles beyond
the famous diamond mines of Kimberly. The
latter mines are already connected with the
seacoast by railroad. Miners are now flocking
to the gold mines in the Transvaal Republic in
great numbers. In all such mining excitements
there is a great deal of fiction mixed up with
But far beyond the Transvaal Republic in
Manshuna land there are reports of wonderful
discoveries, surpassing in richness any hereto
fore known. The natives are extremely hostile
to the whites. But the latter are pushing on to
these mines. If the gold is there, it may bo as
sumed that no native hostility will keep the
miners out. The latest theory is that the real
Ophir is in Mashuna land. Bat it may be noted
that Ophir is always moved along to the richest
mines that are found. However, on the theory
that Solomon procured his gold for the temple
from the southwest coast of Africa, Ophir
might as well bo located in the mysterious Ma
shuna land as elsewhere until the next famous
discovery is made in Africa.
Architect John W. Barr is reported in the
Ileal Estate JU'cord and Business Guide as
Baying; "Tho evidence of the steady and sub
stantial growth of the city, and of the increas
ing wealth of our people, is seen in the elegant
public tmildlngs, fine business houses and beau
tiful residences. Ten or 15 years ago a man
who erected a residence costing $15,000 or 820,
000 was talked about Now a house to attract
attention involves an outlay of $40,000 or $50,000.
In the business portion of the city, the evi
dence ot progress is more marked. The fine
structures are proof of wealth, and they indi
cate pride. Our people have discovered that
they can make money by putting money in sub
stantial and superb buildings. They might

Reports from all the Interior wool markets
indicate increasing strength and activity.
Purchases have been made at San Antpnio
above the'. Eastern valuation. An advance is
also noted in California, and in St Louiff.and
Chicago trade is increasing in volume, while
prices are firm. Manufacturers .are also buy
ing more freely at Boston, New York and
Philadelphia, though quotations can bardly.be
said to have advanced. The only difficulty
with the market is found in the conditions and
prospects of the trade in woolen goods.. The
mills are working on very small margins, and
the outlook for the coming season is not par
ticularly encouragihg. Wool is,, therefore,
bought for future use more on account, otthe
prevailing strength in the country and in Eu
rope and Australia than because of immediate
profits from conversion into fabrics. Dispatches
from Melbourne mention purchases by Eu
ropean dealers at decidedly higher. prices than
American buyers can afford to pay.
More wool is going out from the Boston store
houses to the New England mills than for
some time past, and the market may be char
acterized as steady. Perhaps the most note
worthy item is an increased demand for me-'
dium wools. Fine fleeces are in moderate re
quest, and there is a very good inquiry for ter
ritory supplies of all descriptions. Something
is doing In new super-polled wool, an improve
ment in the quality of .which is very noticeable.

are reports that a large amount will be with

it is asserted that mott of the sums required
will be supplied by the Bank of France. Fur
ther, the rates of interest and discount are now
much larger in Berlin than in London. The

A SAD SEA E0MANCE.
Sorrowful Ending of a Honeymoon That
Had Been Very Plentnnt.
New Yobk, November 6. Five cast-away
sailormen, rescued from the Jennie Rosa
line by some brave fellows of the schooner
Flora Bodgers, and landed at Charleston on
Sunday, brought the saddest tale yet
told of the fearful havoc wrought by Octo
ber's last gale. Their Captain, William. E.
Barlow, 25 years old, married a few months
ago Lottie Wicks, of Port Jefferson, L. I.,
a daughter of Captain Clark Wicks,
who commands the schooner Mary C.
Decker. The Jennie Rosaline was a large
three-masted schooner, with a comfortable
cabin, and the young wife, anxious to be
near her husband, told him, as many
another brava woman has done,
reared by the seashore, that she
was a good saflor and could make the
cabin her home. So the summer trips of
the Jenuie Rosaline proved a happy honey
moon lor the young couple.
It was arranged that after this trip to
Charleston the young wife should stay
ashore during the winter. But during the
gale she and her husband were swept over
board from the water-logged schooner's deck

. AKABGHISTS AOTIM
St. Lonls Nov Seernn to Be the Scene of
Their Operations Preparation! for
tho Anniversary of the Chi
St. Louis, November, 5. On Saturday
and Sunday evenings the Anarchists in this
city will hold meetings to "commemorate the
death of their brother Ansrchists in Chi
cago in 1887. The meetings will be held in
Workingmen's Hall, the object being to
keep alive in the minds of the Anarchists
the Chicago executions.
The circular recently issned and extracts
of which were sent to The Dispatch, is
still attracting great attention. The circu
lar ir one ot the most venomous and radical
ever published, and was printed recently in
New York: for St. Louis Anarchists, and
has been distributed all over the country,
thousands of copies having been scattered
in this city.
The writer admits that the men who suf
fered death in Chicago were Anarchists,
Communists, Atheists and "soldiers ofthe
Eevolution." The circular concludes by
calling on Anarchists, Socialists, Trades'
Unionists, Knights of Labor, turners, free
thinkers and citizens to seize the opportun
ity offered on November 11, to divide good
and evil into two camps, and to rally nnder
the standard of social revolution.

MR. H. B. KUNKLE.
Eesiding at Apollo, and foreman of a sec
tion of the West Penn Railroad, having a
large number of men in bis charge, has for
many years been a great sufferer from
Catarrh of the Stomach and a diseased con
dition of the liver. His stomach gave him
much pain and it felt sore on pressure. His
bowels were constipated, and he had a very
dark, sallow complexion. He had no ap
petite, and what little food he did eat seemed
to do him no good, for he had a sicta,
nauseous feeling after eating. In fact the
very sight or food would often make him
sick at the stomach. He had a dull pain
over his eves. He could not sleep, and he
was always tired, and more so on getting up
in the morning than, when he went to bed.
As the disease extended to his throat and
lnngs he did much hawking andspittingand
he felt a weight and pressure in his lnngs.
It was while in this condition that he con
sulted the Physicians of the Catarrh and
Dyspepsia' Institute, at 323 Penn avenue,
who told him he could yet be cured.
Although he said he had already treated
with fifteen doctors, receiving no permanent
benefit, and had bat little laith, he began
treatment. Of the result he says:
"ily disease was of 18 years standing. I
now feel like a new man. I have a good
appetite, sleep well, feel rested in the morn
ing and am glad to state that I have been enred
of all the above conditions by tbe Physicians
of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute.
H. a K.DNKLE."
Mr. Ennkle Is well known among railroad
men in Allegheny and Armstrong counties.
