the market. Among the latter Western
Union was conspicuous for a rtso of 2 to
98 Baltimore ana Ohio advanced 2J to
S6&, and Ohio and Mississippi 2 to 21. Pa
cific Mail sold up nearly 2 points to 333.
The general list was favorably affected at
the opening by advices from London of a
buoyant market thero for American securi
ties. An advance ranging liom Jto 2 per
cent was recorded. New England, Lake Erie
and Western, Burlington and Quincy, Kock
Island, Louisville and Nashville, Northern

leading the upward movement. Dur

Oats and Corn Bather TVeaR and
Chicago, Oct. 13. O its and pork did the
capering on 'Change to-day. Sibley's sales ot
oats were enormous, and at one time caused
a tumble of c Wright bid January
poik up 7c 11 neat was stubborn as a
luule. It closed strong at c advance after
recovering a decline. TVitli COO cars In sight
corn was less steady and shows a net loss of
Jc from labt night.
With some advance abroad and the Cin
cinnati Price Ctarejif estimating the crop at
500,000,000 bushels and Hie supply on October
1, Including old heat left over, at 396.000,000
bushels against 496.090,000 bushels a year ago,
the crowd was inclined to legard the show
ing as decidedly bullish at the start, and
there was sood buying for a time, but tho
firmness led to lree realizing by longs,
who were disposed to take profits and
tho strength soon disappeared. Another
weak factor was the liberal rainc which wero
reported in the Northwest and Southwest,
nub. a prospect that they nonld extend
over the entire winter wheat belt. Tboro
was not much activity or breadth to tho
trade, the professionals doing most of tho
business. Firmness in foicign markets, ad
vicei Irora this State that not over one-balf
of the usual area of winter wheat had yet
been seeded owing to tho dry weather, and
the chartering or room lor the shipment of
350,000 btftielsof wheat, were the influences
in the wheat pit as the session was coming
to an end.
O'rn 1 eceipts were heavy, being 120 cars
abov the estimate, with the prospect 01 a
steady increase, and thero was lree selling
both by discouraged holders and Tor short
account, with little demand except to cover
shorts and secure profits.
In oats there was a larger volume of busi
ness than for a long time past and an irregu
lar range of prices.
Hog products were generally stronger.
The receipts of Ho hogs were about 9,000
less than expected and there was not much
urgency in selling product, with Wright a
good buyer of January pork. Outside fig
ure were not maintained, however, the
weakness in corn and hogs having little
effect during tlie latter p.irt of the session.
The packing of tlie West lor the week ex
hibited a decrease of 15,(00 hogs the first
reduction reported for some months.
i There was a fair demand lor vessel room,
and rates held steadv at 2c for wheat and

Enoxville and Allentown Traction Com
pany was organized with a cardial of $1,000,
000 and $500,000 6 per cent 40-year bonds.
This stock is owned by the P. & B.
traction, which guarantees the principal and
interest on the bonds, $425,000 of which wei e
placed in Philadelphia and Pittsburg. Thus
the roads wete built and equipped, and
while they have only been in operation a
rew montns tuey are already maatng a littie
money. It was also stated that the P. & B.
tnrned Its interests in the Mt. Oliver and
Pittsburg inclines and Short Lino over to
the Birmingham, Knoxville and Allentown
Traction Company. In referring to this
matter the Tel graph observes that It ''makes
clear the item of $26,697 74 fixed charges,
which figured in the supplementary
report accompanying the annual state
ment, and coveting the first quarter
of the new fiscal year. This sunt
represent1, one-fourth of the annual charge
on the $1,500,000 5 per cent first mortgage
bonds of the parent road, or $18,500, and one
fourth the annual fixed charge on tho $500,
000 6 per cent bonds or the B., E. & A. Ti ac
tion Compiny, or $7,500. The to together
foot up $26,000. which leaves $699 74 as repre
senting three months' taxc. It is under
stood that the extension to Homestead will
be pushed, and a portion of the bonds of the
B..K.&A. remaining in the treasury will
likely be used foftthat purpose." As stated
in yesterday's report, the sentiment on the
stock does not appear to be especially bear
ish, and some ot the street people think
they can detect signs of a disposition to sup
port the stock against lower prices.

PlC Iron Statistics.
Philadelphia, Oct. 13. Tne Bulletin, of the
American Iron and Steel Association, Issued
to-day, says: We have just received from
the manulacturers complete returns of the
stocks of unsold pig iron in their own hands
or in the hands of their agents on the SOth of
September last and not intended for their
own consumption, which we give in com
parison with the statistics of similar stocks
at the close of the last three preceding quar
ters, namely, on June 80 and March 31, 1892,
and December 31, 1891. Inoluded in the
flguies given are the stocks of pig iron in
the yards of the American Pig Iron Storage
Warrant Company, which are still under
the control ot the manufacturers. Net tons

"September JO, 1892...,
M compared with the itooki of unsold pig
Iron on hand on June 30, 1892, there was a
decrease In these stocks at the end or Sep
tember of 135,032 net tons, which is a favora
ble and hopetul exhibit for our piiiron
manufacturers. The decrease is in all of
the three divisions of the pig iron trade ac
cording to the fuel used, the decrease in bi
tuminous, ohiefly coke, being 6L253 tons; In
anthracite, chiefly mixed anthracite and
eoke, 65,713 tons, and in charcoal, 28,066 tons.
In addition to the stocks or unsold pig Iron
in the hands of the manufacturers or their
agents at the four periods mentioned, there
were also in the yards of the Storage War
rant Company the following stocks of pig
iron which were no longer under the con
trol of the manufacturers:

March 31. 1892

June 30, 1892 81,648
September 30. 1892 94,301
In addition to tho gratifying Information
concerning unsold Stocks which wo are en
abled to present we can also congratulate
our pig iron friends upon the fact which our
tables also establish that the number of fur
naces in blast on September 80 was 16 less
than on June 80. To have blown out in
three months 16 more furnaces than were
blown in and to have reduced unsold stock
in the same 135,032 net tons are faots which
together are v, ell calculated to give a most
hopeful tone to the immediate future ot the
pig iron market. Better reduced production
and a reduced demand for pig iron than a
continuance ot the unreasonably low prices
of the past year.

STAPLES ARE FIRM
As a Rule and the Tendency of Most Prices
Is Upward Dairy Products, Eggs and
Coffee Prominently Strong Crop Ex
pert Prime Makes a Cheering Report.
Thursday. Oct. 13.
Trade in mercantile lines continues to be
fairly satisfactory aud merchants are ex
pecting a fair degree of activity throughout
the remainder ot the year. Prices, as a
rule, are holding up well and the tendency
in many lines is upward. Dairy products
and eggs are higher; sugar and cofieeare
strong, with an early advance in the latter
probable; and fruits and vegetables are
firmer. Potatoes are doing somewhat bet
ter, and the movement in poultry is more
active. Receipts of grain, hay and feed
continue large and tho market remains dull
and comparatively weak.
Ciop Expert Prime says: "I am still of tho
long-held opinion that tho West was never
In better shape for a good fall trade in the
interior than to-day, and that the large sur
plus of grain going forward so recently
lias put agreataeaioi money into circula
tion, which will bo soent freely this fall, not
only for -comforts, hut for luxuries. The
dry weather at present is holding back
farmeis from finishing np the seeding of
winter wheat, thiee-fourths of which is now
in the ground. The condition of tho soil is
such that plowing is impracticable and tho
cnily-sown wheat needs lain tobringitup.
The dry weather has also doveloped insect
lite. I do not forcet the fact that late seed
ing last season did not operate against an
average yield; still the winter wheat crop is
very uneven, both in quality and quantity.
In the spring wheat areas farmers are well
along with their plowing and also with
threshing. For the last 30 days the country
roads have been In excellent condition and
farmers have poured out surprisingly their
surplus corn of last season. The ti ado often
wonders wny iarmers sen so ireeiy when
prices are low and crops short, but it is a
lact that the movement is generally freest
when the stuff is nt its lowest price. I ac
count for it in this wny. That when the
grain goes up farmeis always think that it
will go higher, and therefore keep it; then,
as a result, the market falls and they are
forced to sell. Such is the position to-day.
There is not now a Slate in the corn belt
where farmers by selling earlier would not
have realized far more than they can get
for their stuff to-day. Thou, again, a great
many farmers will rather sell a crop thnn
build new granaries and corn cribs to hold
it. This Is particularly the case west of the
Mississippi, where lumber is always very

SCOTCH WAEEANTS DECLINE.
Cleveland Also Loner, While Hematites
Move Up a Little.
Loudojt, Oct. 13. Special. A special cable
to the Jro Age says: Scotch warrants have
declined to 41s 9d4l3'l(lKl and Cleveland to
39s, while hematites moved up to 49 lOJd.
The stock of Scotch in public stores has de
creased to 371,100 tons, but that of Cleveland
remains at very close to 10,000 tons, the re
turns showing only 21 tons' decrease for the
week. Dealings have been on a moderata
scale throughout the week. The only new
feature in the situation is that returns for
last month show an increase of 7,161 tons in
production in Cleveland and that additional
furnaces have since been lighted, leading to
the belief that tl.eie will be an accumula
tion in makers' hands tins montb. Exports
in September were So.000 ton", against 87,000
tons during the corresponding month last
Foundry and Forge Irons Firmer.
New Yobk, Oct. 13. Special. The Iron
Age says: While there has been an increase
in the capacity of the blast furnaces work
ing from 151,618 tons lveekly in September
to 153,027 tons per week on the 1st of the
month, this has been more than offset by a
decrease in the stocks during the month of
not less than 82,000 tons. The increase in the
output has chiefly taken place among those
plants which are owned by or have close re
lations with rolling mills and steel plants.
Foundry and, forge irons, and particularly
tho former, are unquestionably firmer in all
markets, but it is evident that In tbe TVese
at least tlie attitude of sellers is to be
tested by a period of dullness.
The plate mills are lalrly busy. Tho de
mand for tin plate for canning ba3 been dis
appointing thus far this season.
