OIL MEN DEPRESSED.
Downward Tendency of
Market Discourages Them.
SEVERAL WELLS DCE THIS WEEK.
f ome Yentures Showing Light in the Mc
Donald Tool Yesterday;
PUESOlfAIi POLNTS ABOUT PRODUCERS
The tendency of the market to settle on
the 50-cent mark 'has caused a clou3 of
gloom, unctured with woe, to settle on
theiaces of the great majority or oil oper
ators the last few days.
The average operator is a sensitive crea
ture on the subject of the market. He
watches its gentle fluctuations as the aver
age youth doss the baseball bulletin. When
I bo market Is ou the upward track, tbe ope
rator is happy. It makes no diSercnce
whether he lias a cent at stake, or a barrel of
production. Hope is his staff ol life. 'With
a good mat ket lie moos pood times ahead. It
is an excellent barometer, anil will accu
rately delineate tbo condition of Ills mind.
For several days it bas been hovering be
tween SS and 51 cents a barrel, and tbe oper
ators correspondingly depressed. Tbo sit
uation, be claims, warrants a .better price.
Du tier county has been drilled over until a
map of it and its wells resembles a mam
McDonald has boon peppered until there
is scarcely room to make a now location.
The only drilling now beins done in that
field is on the edjtes. The little Allegheny
connty pooft have been sapped until little
oil is left.
Sistersvillo is new, but in the light of the
SlcDonaldgnsliers.lt has not yet produced
any market breakers. Its territory is spread
lnc. bnt so tar tbe ontside wells are light.
In the upper country, whicu emoraces Al
legany county, X. Y JlcKcan, Warren, Ven
ango and Forest counties, nothing.is being
done in tbe wav or new work. It is this
condition of affairs which leads the operator
to believe that the market is n'ot as high as
it should be. Small wells do not pan our,
and the chances of getting big ones are so
uncertain that few caio to risk $5,000 or$6,
COJ in a blind venture at present.

The estimated output of the McDonnld
field yesterday was 23,520 barrels, the same

John McEnen. located south of Willow
Grove, in the Meise district, are on top of
the Gordon. It is claimed by persons
familiar with the wells that the big Meise
wellund thoe on the Mrs. Campbell and
31 rs. Kobb farms are drawing the oil from
the smaller Gordon sanders located west of
them. They arrive at tnis conclusion from
the lact that the "wells just south of Willow
Grove have declined very rapidly since the
big ones came in.

Concerning the Hatch Bill.
CHio GO The w heat market to-day was
quiet. "The opening was a shade under yes
terday's closing. Tbe market fluctuated
within narrow limits and finally closed
about five-eighths lower than yesterday.
The various rumors nbout the Hatch bill
caused more or less uneasiness and had a
tendency to make operators hold off. Cables
Corn v as active and unsettled, with trans
actions on a large scale. The heavy rains
throughout this section had a strength
ening tendency, and under urgent de
mand Irom shorts the market ad
vanced lc from yesterday's close.
Then local longs let go larse quantities, and
the price went down ljfr, the fall belnj
aided by talk of unfavorable legislation at
Washington and the prevailing weakness in
wheat. Denial of the Washington rumor
soon caused a rally ot c, but the pressure
was renewed and the market finally closed
with a loss lor July of Jjfc to lc, and Septem

FEESH BUILDING INTELLIGENCE.
Fifth Avenue Property Yiewed in Relation
. to Removing the Hump.
FEATURES OF MONEY AND SPECULATION
Mr. John "Wesley, formerly prominent as
a cattle dealer and butcher in East Liberty,
consummated a transaction yesterday by
which he acquired about 12 acres of land,
situated above the Edgewood road, Wil
kiosburjr, at a cost close to S25,000. The
tract will be plotted and put on the market.
Being near the line of the borough men

a difficult matter to tell where one ends and
the other begins.

The removal of the Fifth avenue "hump"
appears to ba a less formidable undertaking
than is generally supposed. Speaking of
this . matter yesterday a prominent real
estate operator said: "Ou the lower side ot
the avenue, from Smithfield street to Boss,
property is, or soon will be, in such shape
as to make the catting of positive advan

that end in view, and the Park block, cor
ner of Fifth and Grant, as also the Carnegie
block, and the M. P. Board of Publication
office, will be. Kaufmanns are building
on the same level. On the other side of the
avenue, the Leader and the Maeder build
ings are on the new grade. The houses west
of these to Smithfield street are old, and the
damage to them would not be great. The
Cathedral property and that between Grant
and Ko&s streets, on the upper side of Fifth
avenue, are really all that would be mate

may be said of Citizens' Traction. Pipeage

All the advices from the new pas field were
favorable. Airbrake made another Jump.

ElTHEtt WAX" IN STOCKS.
The Volums of Business Growing Smaller,
Though Pricss Remain Firm A De
clining Tendency In the Grangers
Atchison Strong Railroad Bonds Quiet.
Nbw York. June 23. The volume of busi
ness at tho Stock Eiolianse grows smaller
from day to day, but there is still main
tained a stubborn firmness whiob, while
based on the new ciop conditions and the
general bright business outlook of the coun
try, is not supported by any organized aid
in a speculative way. Operators in the
stock market are confined to the trading by
small pools ou either side of the account.
The opening was made on a very moder
ate business, and at small bnt irregular
changes from last night's figures, while the
declining tendenoy in the Grangers met
with little response from the rest of the
list, while the strength in Atchison carried
it up over 1 per cent. The liquidations in
the Grangers depressed prices slowly, and
Burlington, at its lowest point, was down
over i, but the rest of the market, without
exception, remained without apparent ten
dency in either direction, fluctuating with
in the uartowest limits and developing no
lcatuie of inteiest whatever. The market
gradually sank into tho most lnsense dull
ness, the nomination of Cleveland having
no effect cither to stimulate trade or cause
any movement in prices, and the close was
dull and lairly steady at insignificant
changes for the day.
The bond market was quiet except for
Atchison and Richmond and West Point is
sues, while the former was especially prom
inent in the dealings. Total sales, $1,423,000.

A FBOFII FOB IHE EAST
In the Unsettled Condition of Affairs In the
New York, Juno 23. Special.' The Iron
Age of to-morrow will review the metal
markets as follows: The possibility of a
strike of some duration in the Western mills
is telling on the iron and steel markets. It
has adversely affected pig iron, and has led
to a rush of work to the Western mills for
delivery prior to July 1, and is bringing
orders to the Eastern mills for delivery
after that date. Tbe opinion seems to pre
vail in the trade' that both parties
in the controversy, so lar as the
Iron mills are concerned, have made extt erne
demands in order to give themselves leeway
In subsequent negotiations. In the steel
trade the situation seems a little graver.
Rails, of course, are not affected. In pig iron
the Southern furnaces have In the West suc
ceeded in placing a good deal of tonnage by
lowering prices to the lowest notoh yet
reached. Heavy sales are reported from
Chicago, Cincinnati and Louisville, gray
forgo having been sold down to $3 50, Bir
mingham. Large sales are reported in Pitts
burg of Bessemer pig for forward de
livery at practically the lowest prices
reached. It Is reported tnat the lasfdecllne
is due to lower sales of ore in Cleveland,
thus reducing the cost of production of the
pig iron. This is confirmed, to some extent,
by the fact that steel billets aro being of
fered for August and forward delivery at
prices as low as any made in the past. 'or
spot billets there has been quite a sharp ad
vance in the Pittsburg market, but the rise
is due solely to temporary conditions.
The foreign markets are reviewed by cable
from London as follows: In prices" of pig
iron wai rants the movement has been nar
row, with hematites leceding about 6d, but
neither Scotch nor Cleveland varying more
than 3s. More has been done in Scotch war
rants, however, but operations in Cleveland
were limited, chiefly covering pievious
"bear" sales prompted by fnrther reduction
of stocks and disinclination of lakers
to yield, despite the cessation of
the Durham strike. The cansum ra
tion of Cleveland iron has improved,
uub au uiiiiei mica iiicio 10 tiu uiiuiii;. j.Jieia
is somo pressuro for early deliveries or the
former. Ac present there are 74 Scotch fur
naces in blase. Cleveland furnaces are rap
idly relighting. The last returns show a fur
ther reduction in stocks in connula
stores. Tho totals were 435,000 tons
Scotch and 42,000 tons Cleveland. Latest
traductions were at lis 3d for Scotch,
41s for Cleveland and 50s for hema
tite. The p'g tin market has ex
perienced a sharp reaction. Prompt
deliveries, after reaching 103 15s, gradu
ally weakened to 100, with futnres at
1 discount under pressure to sell.
The latter movement was prompted by re
ports of "bear" pressure to sell in New
York. Local demand has been limited, how
ever, and the feeling here is one of uncer
tainty and indecision. Demand lor con
su motion is momentarily limited. Conner
has ueen quiet and" the market is easy at
about 50, 10s decline on Mei chant
bars. Tin plate bas bHn quiet but Arm.
More doing in ternes at 22s 6d for doubles,
nnd in Bessomers at 12s 6d for American ac
count, but business otherwise on a moderate
scale. In black plate lor America fair sales
are reported at 8 10s.
