LOCAL AND GENERAL HXANCIAL KEWS
Satukdat, Sept 24.
In the main, development! daring the
week ending to-day have been of a charac
ter calculated to increase operations and
strengthen confidence in all lines
of business. Fears of cholera and tight
money have been checked; crop and railroad
reports hare been encouraging; the iron
trade reports noted an improvement in
business and prices; the tone of speculation
was bullish; the Treasury Department in
creased its net gold fund; cold exports
ceased and money -was reported compara
tively easy at all important centers. To
day's Sew York bank statement
showed another slight increase in re
serves, but there were again big
decreases in the items of loans and deposits.
The reserve requirements were largely de
creased, therefore, but the amount held
above the legal limit is nearly 1,000,000 more
than it was at tbe corresponding time last
year. The Treasury Department reports a
larger increase in its net gold fund for the
second ten-day period of September than
had been expected, or from 5114,200,000 on
September 10 to $116,500,000 on September
20, the highest amount reported since tbe
middle or May. Tho recovery from the
lowest point, 4llO,400,COO at tho end of July,
has been rapid, consideiiug tlie continuance
of sold exports in August and early Septem
ber, and maieiially improves the conuition
of tho Treasury.
In tlio West rates held steady at abont 3ffl
6K Per cent, and in the East tho dairy le-
Jiorts have reflected an easy market. The
ast report of the Boston market follows:
The amount oi money lu thl city is proba
bly not any larger than a week ago, but It is
better ditnbuted and consequently con
ditions are much easier. One of the most
prominent industrial companies with hend
Quarters in Boston recently called In somo
of its outstanding bonk ncconnts in order to
prepaie lor any emergency in the way of
inoner rates that rulght possibly appear
later. Funds came from every part of the
country, and last Tuesday it had a cash bal
ance oi $2,(W,0.u The calling of the accounts
demonstrated the easy position of money,
for lu very many cases the remlttersoffeied
larger sums than the company called lor.
Trading on 'Change this week aggregated
S.C28 shares of stock and $2,520 scrip, against
2,631 shares last week and 3,fc9J for tho pre
vious week, these figures showing that the
volume of business preserved a fair aver
age. Trading was mainly in tbe gassers,
tractions and industrials, and the drift of
prices was upward, the leaders of these
groups closing somewhat higher than they
opeued. The general tono of tho list was
strong and the interest in the market in
creased, but neither the advances scored
nor the business completed quite came up
to expectations or lully reflected the im
provement in general conditions. Compared
with the closing quotations of last week the
final bids this -Meek show the following

The decline and rally in Philadelphia
Company was tho feature of this group.
After going off to 21 on sales to realize and
a little pressute on tho nhort side, the shorts
using the talk of disappointment
over the failure ot the directors to
Increase the dividend rate as a
club, the stock recovered on bullish
talk on tho company's earnings, supply of
gas and propects, and closed stiong and in
demand at 22 bid alter sales at 22. The
other passers were steady to stiong,ith the
exception of Wheeling Gas, which sold as
low as 18J-J and closed weak at 19 asked, the
decline in the price of oil belli;; tho chief
influence. People's Pipeage was higher on
a little buying and bidding for inside ac
count, and while the others were unchanged
as to board quotations, the information
comes from an excellent source that Alle
gheny Heating Company, Bridgewater Gas
and Manufacturer Gas sold privately
at prices considerably above the bids
made at the calls. The feeling on the entire
croup was stioncly and more generally
bullish, and lew predictions auent tue future
ot tbe market were made that did not em
body higher prices for the gasera.
The demand lor the tractions ran in the
direction of Citizens, Duquesno and P.iB.
traction. Citizens was advanced to 63 sales
and bid and closed strong at 63 bid, with
rumored sales off 'Change at C31. A good
deal of stock has been takon off the market
during the past fortnight, the bulk
or it being lorced on lor tho pur
pose of closing up an estate, and as
there 5s appaiently no stock of consequence
offering, and as it is now mostly in strong
hands, any one so disposed could easily
mai k it u; a little u itho at being compelled
to take much ol it. The story of tho con
templated deal lor the absorption of the line
by tne Pittsburg-Duquesno people was offi
cially disciedited. but with tho many official
denials made "hen the deal between the
Pittsburg and Duquesne lines was on fresh
in memory those acquainted with the meth
ods or street iailw:i magnates will not be
ruovod to change their views of the story
about the effort to tecure control of Citi
zens. There was some pretty good buying of
Duque-ne traction, but "tho syndicate-' evi
dently tailed to saw -nood, as the stock
closed below the highest of the week and a
fraction below the close of Inst week. P. &
li. traction also failed to respond to lair
buying, though it 'display ed more disposi
tion to do bo to-day than on any pievlous
day ot the week. Its carnlngsaro undoubted
ly increasing, but thfa thieatened competi
tion appears to be a more influential lautor.
P., A. Jfc M. traction was fractionally better
at the close, and Pleasant Valley was
alternately strong and weak. Their
movements arouied no comment,
however, as everybody understands that P.
V. is not likely to move very much in cither
direction, and that P., A. & M. will probably
fluctuate within vory narrow limits until
alter it formally svrallons its Northsldo
llral. Central and Pittsburg were leature
less. The Industrials.
It was a quiet week in this group, though
flrmnes prevailed to a marked degree. The
Inquiry for Switch and Signal was quite per.
Elstent, stimulated by good reports about
the company's earnings, and Airbrake, Un
derground Cable and Wetlngbouse Electrlo
were In moderate demand, but, while prices
genorally improved, trading was compara
There was Increased interest manifested
in the mining list, but trading and price
changes were inconsequential.
Prices should go higher. The cholera
scare has been dispelled; business in mer
cantile and manufacturing lines Is improv
ing; gold exports have undoubtedly ceased
for the year; fear of tight money has been
removed: the tono of speculation Is increas

creasing. Tbe signs or the times are very
plain. Ther point to increased trading and
a higher range of values. Those who pur
chase now, no matter what, they purchase
that has anr Intrinsic value at all, incur
very little risk.
Mews of a Veteran.
Mr. IL M. Long, ono or tho oracles of the
brokerage fraternity, expressed himself as
follow s to-day: "The past week has not been
an active one in local stocks, but values
have been w ell maintained. The shipments
of gold abroad having almost ceased has
tended to loosen up home money, and dis
counting has been resumed with the ad
vantage on the side of the borrow era, The
direct ellect of this has been to stimulate
home buying of good stocks and bonds,
and this In turn enhances tbe current
prices. Stocks with a good future, like
Citizens. Manchester, Pleasant Valley
and Pittsburg, with perhaps Duquesno,
among the tractions, and Snitch and Signal,
Electric Philadelphia Company, Airbrake
and United States Glass among tho other
classes, have all been strengthened by good
buying, and give promise or still further ad
vances. Should money remain cheap and
abundant, 1 look for a good fall business in
the locals, and a good profit on all purchases
made at present figures.
'In a more general view, now that the
silver craze Is virtually settled, 1 can sea
nothing ahead to prevent an excellent
market, a sound trade and a prosperous
time. It Is almost laughable to find so little
attention given, to the political questions,
and business men apparently are deter
mined to waste no time hurrahing for either
party this fall. This upsets tho theoilzing
of the 'oldest citizen,' as politics appears
this yekr mot to be In it.' Outside of the
Suestion involved In the possible reissue of
tate bank currenoy, the business publlo
takes no Interest in tnis canvass, although
it is a Presldental year."
Lawrence & Co. on the Situation.
The regular weekly letter of A. J. Law
rence & Co. to their patrons is as follows:
"With a few exceptions our market has not
responded to improved general conditions.
As we stated a week ago, we did not look
for .an active ana higher market as long as
the prospects for tight money and the sprfead
of the cholera were uppermost topics In the
East. But these factors were practically
removed early in the week, and In addition
to this there were favorable reports .or tho
iron trade. Altogether the effeot should
have been creator, and we confess our
selves a trifle disappointed. Phila
delphia Company was the leader
in the partial recovery that has
taken plaoe, and at 22f is within SO cents a
share of the price at which it was quoted
when tho selling began by disappointed
holders who had looked for an increase in
dividend rate. The companv has Just passed
through the lean quarter of its year, and by
tnis time next wees we win snuw uiuujr
what has been accomplished during that
period. For the next six months its earn
ings should be enormous, certainly not less
than $1,800,000 gross, and as its fixed oharges
and floating debt have been greatly reduced,
the uerceiitnue of net earnings should be
correspondingly increased. (
"The dealings in the street railway shares
indicate that some large interests have been
liquidating, notably In Birmingham trac
tion and to some extent in Duquesno trao
tlon and Citizens. The offerings of the latter
have at last been absorbed, and tho stock is
now in shape to be boomed, It any one is dis
posed to engage in that pastime. Citizens,
however, is not a speculative stock, and a
slow and steady enhancement is more likely
than any sudden advance. There have been
large purchases of Blimlngham traction,
but the price has notbudgedan eighth. The
trouble with lliiminghamis that It is threat
ened with serious competition, which more
than offsets increased earnings.
"Airbrake has moved up another small
fraction to 1(0, and Switch and Signal is dis
playing symptoms of a periodical rise. The
market as a whole does not act as we would
like to see it, but it is in a better position to
more readily respond to good influences
than a week or ten days ago, and we hope to
see it take on a more ueciaea pnase."
Tips From "Wall Street.
J. S. Bache to Oakley & Co: "It was said
to-day that the shorts had covered np nearly
all of their stocks, and on this belief traders
to-day worked for a reaction. It is said that
Mr. Cammack covered 60,000 shares of stock
and that tho short interest in Beading had
amounted to over 100,000 shares. Prices
opened fairly steady, as London was dis
posed to buy stocks, but the Improvement
did not hold long, as the boys tnonght the
rise too rapid. The market fully demon
strates Its professional oharacter.
When the short interest is out
the bulls have but little to
work on. On the other hand, it must be
said that every time the bears sell stocks
they have to lecover them at higher prices.
In olden times the bear operators would
work the market in all the ways known to
Wall street. They would give bull houses
orders to sell stocks; in fact, would do any
thing in their power to bewilder people,
but nowadays they merely fell their line
and then sit down and await developments,
therebv showing their hand.
"St. Paul showed a decrease and this pro
duced some selling. The great question
now is, 'flow will railroad earnings bet' If
roads can earn ns much as they did lat
year prices are reasonably cheap, but with
the short crop and much lower prices for
both wheat and corn we hardly think roads
will fare nearly as well. The a. B. A Q.
statement for the month of August Is to
come Tuesday or Wednesday, and this will
go a great way toward enlightening people
on this point. For the present we advise
sales on rallies."
From Sproul A Cc'smaiket letter: "The
net results of the speculative week are the
demonstration that Wall street Itself has
entirely iccovered from tne influence of the
cholera scare ana is also somewhat less ap
prehensive about the workings of the
autumnal money market. It Is, however,
equally apparent that these developments
have changed the attitude of professional
interests without aneenng puonc sentiment
to an extent that would bring Into the mar
ket the support and buylne neoessary for a
sustained Improvement. The ront of the
beat's in tho past few days has been com
plete, but when speculation Is as narrow as
is now the case, the exhaustion of a short
interest removes the sole visible basis for a
continuance of the advance."

DRIFT OF REALTY.
A Good Week's Business, Particularly In
East End Acreage Activity in the Vi
cinity of Squirrel Hill Record of the
Week and Latest Transactions.
Satttkdat, Sept 24.
The realty market brightened tip a little
this week as the result of better conditions '
generally, and while there was no special
animation in any particular direction, a
number of large sales were closed up, par
ticularly in East End acreage.. The addi
tional sales of Fifth avenue realty, east of
the Court House, reported in these columns,
was convincing evidence of increasing in
terest in that section, and the inquiry for
and transactions in city business prop
erty in general showed that con
fidence in values had not been
impaired in the least. Agents continued to
report a fair demand for small residences
and suburban residence sites, and in a gen
eral way the market was a fairly satisfac
tory one to all concerned.
The week's transfers were smaller in num
ber than last week, but theamount involved
was larger. The same is true of building
permits. Mortgages and mortgage pay
ments were larger and the number of Judg
ments and executions decreased. Following

The Itesult ot the Day's Operations on the
Now York Stock Exchange Wheeling
and Lake Erie the OnlyKeally Strong
Point Gould Brokers Buy the Pacifies.
New York, Sept. 24. The day in "Wall
street was little more than tbe closing of a
speculationwhich has developed consider
able activity in tbe stock market and served
to make a substantial reaction from the de
pression caused by the cholera scare. There
was little feature to the trading. The list
was qniet and held within narrow limits
throughout the day except Louisville,
which was still pressed for sale and declined
a fraction. Gould brokers were buyers of
Missouri Pacific and Texas Pacific,
but the pressure upon tbe leader settled
the list away slowly until niter the publica
tion of. the bank statement which again
showed a slight gain in the surplus reserve.
The only ically strong point in thellst was
Wheeling and Lake Erie preferred, whose
gain was a half per cent net, but the irtflu
ence of this was more than offset by a drop
of 1 per cent in Lackawanna on very light
trading. The trading was barren of feature
and the close was steady, with most stocks
at slight losses from last evening's figures.
Bonds were, if anything, more active than
usual, but while a firm temper was main
tained the changes of note were few in num
ber. The sales were $691000, of which Rich
mond and West Point 5s contributed $130,
000, and Reading 3ds $105,000.
Government bonds were dolt and steady.

BIG WELLS AT 0AKDALE.
Camphell & Co. Got a GoodProducer on the
"Woodhonso Lot Gordon Sanders Show
ing Up Work Which Is Now Almost
Finished in the McDonald Oil Field.
Yesterday was a prolifio day In the oil
fields. There were a number of wells
which were showing good, and at Oakdale,
or rather only a few hundred feet south
west of it, a well was drilled into the fifth
sand which started off at 30 barrels an
This well was a surprise to all. It is lo
cated only a short distance from Green
lee & Forst's Ho. 6 Marshall. The new
producer belongs to Campbell A Co. and is
located on whatis known as the Woodhouse
lot For several months this property was
considered no good, and even people who
had larce interests In the Held refused to
take It up.
Finally Mr. Campbell, who is a tenderfoot
in the oil business, got hold or the property,
and put down the well, whloh is now mak
ing from 25 to 30 barrels an hour.
The well of E. H. Jennings 4 Co. on the
Maggie Campbell farm, which Is from 12 to
11 feet in the fifth sand, is making only
abont 100 barrels a day, and unless tboy
strike a second pay the chances aro that it
will never be any better.
Late Friday evening this well was
reported in Flttshurjr to be mak
ing ten barrels an hour, but
yesterday an investigation failed
to show that it had ever put out this amount
or petroleum in 60 minutes. It Is located
some distance west of the well of Campbell
& Co. on the Woodhouse lot
The latter well shows bevond a doubt that
there is fifth sand oil, with producing quali
ties, located sonth of Oakdale, and only a
few venturesome test wells are needed to
prove the truth of this assertion.
OH In the Bobbins TYelL

The twenty-sixth national encampment
may well be called the grandest in the his
tory of the order. The attendance was un
precedented, and Tuesoay's'parade was un
doubtedly tho greatest event of the kind
since the grand review in 1865. Every com
rade in the department -may woll bo proud
of Pennsylvania's showing. In point of
numbers and soldierly appearance Pennsyl
vania took the prize with ease. It is bo
lieved the department had over 15,000 men
The new national officers are: Commander
in Chief, A. G. Weissert, of Wisconsin:
Senior Vice Commander, K. H. Warfleld, of
California; Junior Vico Commander, Peter
B. Ayres, of Dolaware. Commander Weis

but he has said nothing about the quarter
The election of Comrade A. P. Burchfleld,
of Post 102, Allegheny, to tho position on the
National Council of Administration made
vacant by the death of Comrade William
McClelland occasions the comrades of this
department the highest gratification.
The proposition to prevent Past National
and Past Department Commanders from
having a voice and vote in the National En
campment was overwhelmingly defeated.
This reminds ono tnat this is the twelfth
time that this prooosltionbas been downed.
Wo Have No Soldiers' monument
A soldiers' monument inSchenley Park
is one of the probabilities. Post 157 took
the initiatory in the matter Thursday even
ing when it was resolved that the post
would do its sharo toward the projeot It is
ra,thor a strange fact that such a large city
as Pittsburg has no soldiers' monument It
is probably the only city or anything like its
size in tho country which has no such com
memoration or tho deeds of its soldiers.
Schenley Park would be Just the place In
which to erect a soldiers' monument It is
understood that Chief Bigelow is favorable
to the plan, and that liis consent will read
ily bo given. Ifso.it is probable that tbe
Grand Awny will start a work that will re
sult in the erection of a fine monument in
Schenley Park and the elimination of Pitts
burg's deficiency in that respect

A CASE JOB A C0JIPEOMI3K.
Jndgo White's Decision In a Suit Against a
Judge White handed down a decree in the
case of D. S. Caruthers vs tbe Philadelphia
Company, in which it is ordered that the
defendant company relay 275 feet of main,
connecting this city with the Murraysville
field. The plaintiff by a written agreement
on January 1, 1885, granted to the defend
ant the right to lay its pipes through his
farm in Patton township, in a (trip
8 feet wide and 2,810 feet long,
and by a supplemental agreement the pipes
were to be placed at least two feet below
the surface of the ground. This agreement
was not complied with, 275 ieet of the pipe
being laid within two leet of the surface.
The decree is accompanied by a lengthy
opinion, and among other things the Court
says: "If the averments in the bill are true
the plaintiff has sustained considerable
damage, and it is a question whether he
bad better not take damages done or likely
to be done and let the pipe remain. It is
clearly, a case for a compromise. '

eral Greenland that a standard revolver ba
adopted for the National Guard officers, and
that an order to that effect be issued as soon
