THE PITTSBURG DESPATCH. EEIDAY, AUGUST- 5, 189a
Upon Bumors of YanderMt Buying
of St. Paul and Omaha.
KOETHWESTEEN IS PKOMINENT.
The Industrials Less Conspicuous in the
LESS INTEREST IN THE GRANGERS
New York, Aug. 4. The stock market
to-day was active at first, but later it settled
back into the old rat of dullness, and while
the industrials were still prominent in the
dealings they occupied a much less conspic
uous place than for the last two days. The
rumors cf Vanderbilt buying of Omaha
made that stock again a leader, if not the
leader of the market, and the stimulus was
extended to all the Vanderbilt shares
which have of late been entirely neglected.
Northwestern being especially active and
strong. These movements, however, were
after aU but incidents In the market and
tbe rest of the list acted as usual or late,
dullness being tbe most prominent feature
and fluctuations being of the hand-to-mouth
order. The movement in tbo industrials
gave evidence of having reached Its limit,
at least for the present, though General
Electric still had many friends and scored a
The trading was almost entirely profes
sional, and the room contingent was in
clined to be bearish again, though there was
little pressure of stocks except in realiza
tion of the profits accrued during the late
movement. The lately manifested tendency
or tne foreigners to sell stocks on every rise
Is again having its influence to re
strict operations, and the failure of
the railroad list to follow the indus
trials to any marked extent gives tbe
bears hope that the efforts to start a bull
campaign will be discouraged by the lack of
support given by those outside the Stock
Exchange. There was a diminished amount
of interest shown in both Atchison and the
Grangers, and the fluctuations in those
shares have dwindled down to tbe propor
tions ot those in the general maiket, and
this afternoon the withdrawal of the stimu
lus from the industrial slocks tendered the
market once more dull and lifeless.
The market closed with a firm temper,
though generally at small fractional losses
as compared with last night's figures.
Railroad bonds were very quiet and dis
played no marked tendency in either direc
tion, but most of tbe changes of note were
advances. The total sales were only $1,117,
000. Government bonds were dull and steady.

Watson 4 Gibson to Oakley & Co.: "The
stock market was irregular to-day but mod
erately active. There is some talk of gold
exports, of damage to crops from the beat,
and a good many traders parted with their
stocks. We are very Dullish on the market,
despite the fact that most of our friends are
either bearish or afraid to be really bullish.
The market is either a purchase or a
sale, and we do not believe in the
principle of saving that If it goes off
a little it is a purchase, or ir it goes up a
little It is a sale. That is worse than no
opinion at all, for it is an evasion, a post
ponement of the qnestlon; the market is
either a purchase now or ic is a sale. There
is no middle ground. We wish to emnhaslze
the statement, which is not a matter of
bear-ay, but of -personal information, that
there is literally no market in Loudon for
American stocks; that it has gotten down
to such a low state as to be a mere
skeleton of its rormer propor
tions. Tbe fact that somebody purchased
1,000 shares of Louisville and Nashville in
the London Stock Exchange this morning
vi as deemed an event of sufficient import
ance to be telegraphed over. We grant that
no bnll leeling exists in London for Ameri
can speculative securities and that brokers
there give out the most pessimistic and dis
couragingexpressioas concerning the future
but we wish to renew our prediction that
they will buy our stocks very largely during
the coming autumn.

BROAD AND STRONG.
Cereals and Provisions Kule Active on an
Chicago, Aug. 4. The broadest and strong
est trading for many weeks was witnessed
to-day on the Board of Trade. Corn and
oats were excited, the crop news develop
ing a genuine scare. Wheat went up in
sympathy, closing Jc higher than last night.
Corn gained ljc, oats le and pork 20c
The corn trade had a lively day. The mat
;et started with the trade nervous and
prices up JJc or more over night on tbe hot
weather and hot winds talk on tbe curb last
night and this momlne. Some points in
Kansas had a temperature of about 100 for
a little time yesterday and the dis
patches quickly raised the cry of
damage to corn. Kansas City messages this
morning said the situation is growing dally
worse. Other stories were to the effect that
corn was beading In many sections while
only three feet high. The Price Current com
ment was bearish, saying that the average
was well maintained and the prospect gen
erally encouraging. Tbe receipts were quite
liberal at 350 cars, while tbe estimate for
Friday was light at 275 cars. It was about
midday that a batch of fresh dispatches
from Atchison, Wichita, Leavenworth and
other points were circulated saying that
with the best of weather the orop will bo
from one-half to three-fonrths of an aver
age. When the late advance started there
was a general scramble by the shorts. Tbe
bull fever was not allayed, the close being
at o from tbe top for the day.
A heavy business was transacted in oats.
The cause for the activity and advance was
the liberal local and outside buying, parties
who handle larse quantities being heavy
buyers. Their purchases were based on the
continued unfavorable tone of the crop re
ports which aro coming In from this State,
lowa, and in fact all the surplus oats States.
The threshing returns are disaripolntlng,
the yield per acre being 20 to 35 bushels and
the weight 20 to 25 pounds per bushel.
Wheat advanced in sympathy with the in
creased strength in corn, oats and provis
ions. The opening sales exhibited an im
provement of JgC over yesterday's closing
price, advanced a shade and then fell off
about c, fluctuated within a limited range
and then advanced 1c, closing firm.
The situation in provisions is a surprise to
many who regarded the advance which
started in a few weeks ago as a temporary
aflair. The shipments of meats, the reduc
tion of stocks, the decrease in the move
ment of hogs all continue beyond expecta
tions. There was an advance from last
night at the best prices of about 22o in
pork, 12c in lard and 12Jc in short ribs.
Freights were firm with a fair demand at
2o for wheat and 2c for corn to Buffalo.

X Sharp Advance in Airbrake in the Final
LOCAL AND GENERAL FINANCIAL GOSSIP
Thursday, August 4.
Tbe boomlet in local securities that ma
terialized during the closing days of July
seems to be developing into a full-grown
boom. There is no lack of orders In the
hands of the brokers, and they are steadily
coming in from day to day in all sizes, de
spite the continued upward tendenoy of
values. The trading on 'Change to-day cov
ered Duquesne Traction stock and bonds, F.
& B. Traction stock and bonds, Philadelphia
Company, Central Traction, TJ. S. Glass,
Luster Mining Company, Westinghouse
Airbrake and Westinghouse Electrio pre
ferred. Duquesne Traction bonds sold at
J0( and P. & B. Traction bonds
at 101, and the demand was ap
parently undiminished at the close.
Duquesne Traction firmly maintained
its hold around 28, and P. & B. Trac
tion was a shade firmer at 26 sales and bid,
though 100 shares were offered at 26 after
the close Central Traction sold up to 30,
but It was not maintained at that notch,
closing at 2930 with Indications of soon
being fixed firmly above the paid-in line.
In the other tractions very few noteworthy
features developed, though the entire group
may be said to have presented a strong
The demand for street railway securities
continues excellent and the general senti
ment conservatively bullish. Philadelphia

which figures show u slightly advanced posi

Peoples Natural Gas again ad
vanced a lull point In tbe bid
ding. Peoples Pipeage was fractionally
higher and Manufacturers' Gas moved up a
little, all of which may be accepted as re
flecting tbe opinion entertained of the gas

oubtedly gaining a little all the time, and
It is possible that, one of these days,
the sharp upward move will occur that
so mauy have been so long and anx
iously awaiting. It sometimes happens,
however, that what nearly everybody Is
looking for fails to come. TJ. S. Glass fully
held its own.selling at 71 and closing slightly
below. The demand has subsided some
what, but very lew expect to see much of a
reaction, if any.
Just after tbe last call there was a little
trading In Airbrake, Pittsburg and Birming
ham traction and Westinghouse Eleotrlo
preferred, the first and last named selling
above recent quotations. Atrbiake, whicn
bad been steadily gaining strengtn during
tbe past week, showed symptoms of advanc
ing during the last call, and they broke
out immediately after in a sale at 127K and
a good bid thereafter for n round lot. P. &
B. traction sold at the same price as on call,
263, and 25 shares ot Electrio prelerred
changed hands at 46.
In the shares which did not figure In the
trading, Westinghouse Electric (old) was
lower at XiQlTfi; but Switch and Signal.
Luster and oue ur two others sympathized
more or less with tbe leading active and
The close of the market was strong at
about the best prices of the day, and the
tone was unmistakably bullish. Nearly

Chicago Gas' Elval.
A special meeting of the stockholders of
the Mutual. Fuel Gas Company, of Chicago,
has been called for August 29 for tbe pur
pose of voting on a proposition to Increase
the capital stock to $5,000,000. At present
the capital stock is $500,000 and 10 per cent is
being earned on it. The Intention is to ex
tend mams all over the Southside and ulti
mately over tbe entire city of Chicago. The
stockholders of the company are the wealth
iest men in the West and inclnde snch names
as L. Z. Loiter, J. J. MitchelLPresidcnt of the
Illinois Trust and Savings Bank, and others
of a similar caliber. President Bogue says the
stockholders have decided not to sell out at
any price and the bulk of the stock has been
placed in trust to prevent any interest In
imical to the nollcy of cheap gas for Chicago
from securing control. The Mutual com
pany charges 60 cents per 1,000 for gas,
against $1 25 by the Chicago Gas Company.
A movement has been started in Gsneral
Electrio which its promotors say will take
it to a high place. An Insider says: "The
company owns patents for almost every
conceivable present use of electric power,
and is steadily advancing in their 'greater
perfection and wider application, I am
speaking close up to the book figures of the
company, when I tell you that the com
pany will show, for tho present year,
not less than $5,250,100 01 net earnings, and
probably $5,500,000. ' The company has issued
$30,000,000 of stock, and holds $20,000,000 in
its treasury. These earnings will be equal
to paying not only the lull 8 per cent divi
dend for this year on tbe outstanding stock,
but will pay the same dividend for next
year also, and leave a cash surplus besides.
All this for a corporation whose business
cannot even standstill with good manage
ment, but mnst broaden out and expand

As the Boston Newt Bureau sees it: "There
is no mistaking the strength or the market,
nor the strong buying which characterizes
it. It is not a sentiment oreated merely for
the purpose of manipulating prices to un
load upon, but is based on two good crops
and the strong position of railroad proper

cessation of construction."

Flans In the Suburbs Continue to Find
Favor With the People A New Eight
Story Building for.-FIrst Avenue Latest
The realty market is pnrsning the even
tenor of its way, picking up a little activ
ity and strength now and then and promis
ing good things for the future. Talking
about the outlook in the suburban districts
an agent said yesterday: "There has been a
good deal done in the way of singing the
praises of the suburbs, but it is still being
done and not being overdone. All the va
rious plans that have been placed on the
market since the Introduction of rapid
transit have been successes. Lots in the
plans not yet filled are being more
or less eagerly sought after and the
filans now in embryo will doubt
ess meet with an encouraging recep
tion when they are ready for public inspec
tion." The Scbenley Park plan Is 'one of tho
recent notable successes. In this plan alone
over 100 bouses have been erected during
the past year. The sale or lots in the plan
Is still active, and many new bouses are
going up. "The Schenley Park plan," says
one of its projectors, "must be seen to be ap
preciated.'' A Flattering Offer Refused.
The owners of the Logan property, on the
corner of Negley and Hampton avenues,
comprising five acres, have refused an offer
of $45,000 for the same. They are now debat
ing whether to sell in acreage or divide into
lots. This property Is adjacent td that re
cently purchased by Mr. John Fite. The
latter gentleman Is asking $100 per foot front
for his holdings. Property is being steadily
Improved in this section, and values are ex
pected to enhance materially in the next
two or three years.
Building Permits and Building,
Only one permit was issned yesterday, and
that was for a two-story stone dwelling on
Center avenue, corner of Negley avenue.
Mr. J. H. Gailey is the gentleman for whom
the house will be erected, at an estimated
cost of $18,000.
It will be remembered that one day last
week the eastern wall of tbe building occu
pied by the Pennsylvania Tube Works on
First avenue, below Smitbfleld street, col
lapsed as the result of being undermined by
some men at work on the next lot excavat
ing a cellar for the building George H. Ben
nett proposes to erect. Since the collapse
Mr. Joshua Rhodes, the owner of the prop
erty, has decided to put up a handsome
eight-story building on the site.
There Is considerable activity in tbe build
ing line out Crafton way. In the West End
also, and along the south shore of tbe Ohio
river, down toward McEee's Rocks, a num
ber of building schemes are in the first
stages. The work on the reconstruction of
the West End road into an electric line is
having a good effect.

GRAIN A LITTLE FIRMER.
In All Other Respects the Home Markets
Are Unchanged Dairy Products Firm,
With Cheese Likely to Be Higher A
Few More Crop Reports.
Thursday, Aug. 4.
The mercantile features noted for some
time past are still prominent dullness
among the grain and feed and produce com
mission men and activity in groceries and
hog products and no new ones have devel
oped. There is a firmer tone in grain, how
ever, and something of a disposition to do
business is becoming manifest. Wheat is
rather irregularly quoted, A representa
tive of Marshall, Kennedy & Co. slated
this morning that his firm were paying all
the way from 75c to 82o for new No. 2 red
wheat and from 82c to 87c for old No. S red,
the price depending almost wholly upon the
test by weight. The ruling quotations on
'Change for old No. 2 red are 8485c
Ear corn is tending upward on account
of light receipts, A few cars might sell at
the outside price, but any receipts of conse
quence would quickly send the price off.
Shelled corn is somewhat firmer, and oats,
while firm, are little better than nominal.
Feed Is steady and liny baiely so.
Following are a few more crop returns -received
by John Hood:
Miami county, O. Wheat doing fairly
well: somo good wheat and some poor.
Seneca county, O. Wheat not very good;
will test aDout 58 pounds; consldeiable old
wheat here yet. Oats crop Is good. Hay fair.
Madison county, O. Wheat fair. Oats
W ells county, Ind. Wheat crop is being
marketed quite lively; good crop in bushels,
but the quality is poor. The best grade we
can get is 58 pounds.
Grand Rapids, Mich. Wheat from some
sections seems very good, testing 53 to GO
pounds.and some as high as 61 and 62 pounds.
Oats a short crop.
