THE PITTSBURG DESPATCH,'. SATURDAY, OOTOBER 1, 1892.
15EW ENGLAND LEADS
Activity and Strength, Closely
Followed by Distillers.
BEADIKG ACTIVE AND WEAK.
The Application for a Receiver for Chicago
Gas Breaks the Stock.
EAILKOAD BONDS QUIET BUT FIEM
New York, Sept Sa The stock market
to-day was as narrow as usual, but the
animation infused into a few stocks by bar
ing for the account of outside speculators
gave the market an active and strong ap
pearance, and in the few stocks which were
larcely traded in substantial movements
occurred. New England again assumed a
commanding position in the market uader
heavy buying, which was believed
to be partly for Boston and partly for Chi
cago account, and while there was
nothing definite revealed to show
the basis of this confident demand,
It was rumored, that the buyers had
intelligence ot new developments which
will act favorably upon the stock. Another
active stock was Chicago Gas, which was
sold heavily in the early trading but equally
heavy buying soon rallied it completely.
Distillers also came in for a share of buying
and improved materially. Another im
portant leature ot the day was the strength
exhibited by the Richmond and West Point
securities, especially the 5 per cents.
The meeting ot the coal Bales agents has
had the eflect of making a waiting attitude
on the coalers, and while Beading was very
active, especially late in the day, when the
efforts to get it down became most marked,
it was held within a rang of 1 per cent all
day long and closed within K Point of last
nteht's prices. The other coalers were al
most entirely neglected.
The effector the application for a receiver
for Chicago Gas at the close of the day was
a loss of pei cent, with the stock firm at
tho decline, while the various rumors about
different parties seeking control of New
England resulted in a rise of 2J lor that
stock. The only other important change
for the dsy was in Distillers, which is takon
care of by the insiders and a gain of 2 per
cent for the day wa'. scored. Other stocks
wore quite neslectet, but a firm temper in
tne early aeaung wars louowea oy a gonerai
reaction when the rke in New England cul
minated, hut despitj free realizations in the
late trading, the market closed rather firm
on a light rallyV
Kailroai! bonds were quiet but fairly firm
throuslioutfheday, tho features being the
Texas Pacific bonds and the Richmond and
AVest Point 3s, while other inactive issues
BcoreQ material gains in a len cases. Tlie
interest centered in the Arkansas State
issues in which a large business was trans
, acted at advancing prices, the Little Rock
behnz most prominent. The sales ot
railroad bonds aggregated $1,331,000.
Government bonds were quiet and steady.

I GREAT WEAKNESS.
Hog Iprodncts Decline Sharply and the
J Cereals Close Lower.
Chicago, Sept. 30. Quick, slippery turns
and a weak close marked to-day in the grain
pits. Provisions were put on a decidedly
lower shelr. Compared with last night
wheat is ViK lower. October corn is Jo
jlower and May from J to Jgc lower. October
pork!is47K lowor, January has declined
STHc and the following losses occurred iu
lard'and ribs: Lard, 2c for October and
ISKc "for January; ribs, 55c for October and
I3c for January.
The selling out of so much lone corn yes
terday left the general trade pretty well
discouraged. Everything was against the
market. The receipts were, 709 cars. The
contract com for the dav was 497 cars. Tho
Saturday estimate was 585 cars. The out In
spection was light at 170,000 bushels. The
weftther was most perfect for September.
Thlpre was nothing but the relatively lower
pripes to tempt buyers.
Another day of heavy tiadlng was expert
eiiqed by the oats crowd, the market flue
; with corn and closing from Ho to a
The wheat trade had a at uptd session. It
wis current gossip that 800,000 bushels or
thereabouts of the wheat bought yesterday
at 70c was taken by Leopold Bloom, and that
Broker J. Q. Adams had absorbed as much
as 2,600.000 bushels at about the same price.
Tho Adams buying was said to be
based upon the knowledge possessed; by
the buyer, who owns a lanre farm in the
Northwest, qf the inferiority or this year's
spring wheat crop. The receipts from the
country continue on an enormous scale.
The outlook is for a 1,000,000 bushel increase
In the visible supply statement next Mon
day, which, If reniized, would bring the
total close up to 60,000,000 bushels, with at
least 18 weeks ot further accumulation to
look forward to. The total "amount in tho
visible supply on January last was In the
neighborhood of 43,000,000 bushels, or about
i hat it amounts to now.
There was a lot up In the aesressive aotion
of manipulators in October ribs. The price
was held at $10 SO bid during tho morning
and let down to a nominal closing at $9 95.
Freights held steady at2c for wheat and

The Volume of Business for Stptemher Was
CONDITION OP PHILADELPHIA COMPANY
Friday, Sent. SO.
Tradine in local securities on 'Change for
the month ending to-day aggregated 16,406
shares of rtock, 533,000 bonds and 55.452
kcrip, against 15,664 shares stock and 596,
000 bonds for the month of August. I"or
the month of September last year the busi
ness on 'Change covered only 5,421 shares
of stock. According to the usual calcula
tions, the figures for the month just closed
represent about half the actual volume of
business, as transactions ofi 'Change are, as
a rule, quite as numerous as those at the
regular boards. The past month, however,
has been an exceptional one with re
gard to street and office business.
The sales of stieet railway stocks
and bonds "on the quiet' bavS been unusu
ally heavy, particularly so with respect to
bonds, and in the gassers, industrials, rail
roads, bridge and other shares private trad
ing has been on a very liberal scale. A con
servative estimate or the total business of
the month is 35,000 shares or stook, $400,000
bonds and $10,000 scrip, and when it is con
sidered that the course of prices has been
upward throughout, with the usual comple
ment of reactions, it must be admitted that
the month has been a fairly satisfactory"
Course of To-Day's market.
Dullness and strength characterized the
list to-day. Airbrake, Philadelphia Com
pany, Pleasant Valley Railway, Westing
honse Electric unasaented, first preferred
and scrip and Duquesne traotion bonds
were the items traded in at the calls, with
the most activity and strength In Alrbrako
and Philadelphia Company. Airbiake sold
at 142, tho hlehest point yet touched on the
present capitalization, ana l'nuaaeipnin
Company sold at 22K225, closing at 22
22V. The close on tlie latter was a little
below the highest of the day and somewhat
lower than the previous close, but the stock
had a strong look despite the fractional soft
ening, wnicn was aue more to tne presenco
of Boston selling orders in the market than
to any other influence. Pleasant Valley
railway was strong at 25 sales, and a close
at 2526. Electric uuassented sold at 24,
and the first preferred at 50V, but the sec
ond preferred was neglected. At the close
39 n as bid for 100 shares, but the closing bid
on the New York stock exchange was only
77 per cent, or 88. Dining the last call on
tlie local board UJ was bid for any part of
$5,000 worth of tho scrip alter a sale of $1,000
at the same price.
Among the sliures wnloh figured in tho
trading Wheeling Gas was hUher at 19
19 on the strength of the strike of a 27o
batrel oil well south or Laurel Hill, a
little this side ol the McDonald develop
ments, and Union Snitch and Signal was
fractionally stronger, but the others were
unclianged from Thursday's closing prices.

According to these figures acconnts
and bills payable have been re
duced during 1 the rjast quarter
$25,003 49, and $126,000 worth of bonds
retired. The indebtedness of the company
also shows a 1 eduction from $492,484 u5 to
$281,478 53, which was accomplished by the
reduction in the bills and accounts payable,
the letirement of the bonds noted and the
transfer of the security deposits item from
the debtor to the creditor side of the state
ment. The cash on hand July 1 was $160,
210 56, but if the security deposits item
had been treated in the July statement as it
is now the cash on hnnd would have been
little more than $100,000. The security de
posits item was rightly treated in the July
statement, as it is nothing more nor less
than a portion of the company's indebted.
ne9. The cash on hand now, theieioie, is
$167,694 41, or, in leallty, again something
more than $67,OC0. The .other prominent
features shown by comparison are an in
crease in the disputed account, and a lame
decrease in the bills and undisputed ac
counts receivable. So lar as lfirnishing a
line on the company's ability to increase its
dividend rate is concerned the statements
are valueless, as there is no reason to sup
pose that tbe dividends 'paid are not in
cluded In tho net cash on hand. The last
statement, however, shows the company to
be in an improved financial condition, with
a slight inciease in its earning power; hut,
without going Into a close analysis, it is ap
parent that tho directors of the company
acted wisely in not increasing the dividend
rate at tneir last regular meeting.

a block or 10,000 tons Bessemer. As the
figures did not meet his views he left with
out purchasing. The undertone of the mar
ket is certainly more favorable to makere.
The inquiry for iron for prompt delivery Is
decideuly mmo frequentlindlcatlng beyond
question that consumers have little stock
on hand, as their arrangements about de
liveries are geneiany quite close, we near
or certain producers declining to accept.

and some Southern makers have raised their
prices a little Tor certain grades, but this is
about the only change on the part of the
An Eastern Opinion.
An Eastern dealer remarks: "Some good
concerns talk very hopefully in regard to
the situation. They have a demand at full
current rates for every ton of iron they own,
and in some instances have sold their entire
output for the balance of the year. Others
who control large quantities of iron say it
requires hard work to prevent accumula
tion, and that inside prices are the most
they can realize on large lots. Both these
reports are doubtless actual experiences,
aTid between tlio two it Is probably fair to
assume that tho market is in moderately
good shape among active or favorite brands,
but somewhat heaVy on medium and low
Temper of the Market.
Structural material is in active demand
and prices are firm with an upward ten
dency. Muck bar is in Improving 'demand
and holders firm. In steel billets prices are
governed by time or delivery, with the mills
well sold up. Mill iron is steady and un
changed. Bessemer sold at $13 7514 00. In
skelp iron and steel the demand is active
and prices aro well maintained. Old iron
and steel rails are scarce and wanted. Scrap
material Is active nnd advancing. Spelter
is active and prices aro fully maintained.
Fonndry irons are steady at last week's
prices. Taken as a whole tho outlook is fa
vorable. Xato News and Gossip.

. Healthy Conditions at Chicago.
Chicago, Sept. 30. Special. Sogers,
Brown and Merwin say: The healthy condi
tions leported a neek ago still eontinne in
this district. The Southern manufacturers
are maintaining their position of firmness
and are now getting 25c per ton mora
on nearly all grades than was
the case last month. Qn certain
numbers the have advanced prices a
triflo moro than this on account of heavy
contracts booked. Inquiries continue ac
tive and are on tho increase, yet for the
mbst part consumers are still unwilling to
pay anv advanco in price over figures blch
wcie offered during July and August. Many
of them would now gladly buy at such tlg-
cresbnt are unable. Meanwhile manufac
turers both North and South are occupying
an Independent position.
Demand Widely Distributed.
Cincinnati, Sept. 30. Special Rogers,
Brown & Co. say: Tbe demand has been
widely distributed, coke irons, charcoal
Irons and softeners snaring In the movc-
I meat. Bessemer, however, lags. A close);
i eye is kept on the statistics o' stocks. It I
uqucvcu tuat- tuo reuurb ut uuiuwriHii
show another heavy decline. It is cer
tain that some districts are reducln
stocks. Personal observation at man
plants in the South tbe past wee!
shows that current shipments are in every
case beyond current product. Money vt
working easier in the West. Foundries and
mills find the demand for finished forms
maintained even beyond their expectations.
Final agency arrangements for the new Ten
nessee De Bardeleben combination wera
confirmed during the week. They give to
Bogors, Brown & Co., the Ensley, South
Pittsburg and Sewanee brands, eight stacks,
in all territory west of the Allcgbenles, and
to the same firm all territory east or the
Allegbeules for the Da Bardeleben and Alice
brands, nine stacks.
No Change at Chicago.
Chicago, Sept. 30. ISpeciat. Eogers
Brown and Meacham say: The same condl-j
tions exist in the local market as reported
last week. Tho advance of 25 cents per ton'
on all grades of Southern coke Iron is being,
maintained, and furnaces decline to acoepl
orders at prices ruling last month.
