THE P1TTUUUKO DISPATCH, FBIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1892.-
The Stock Supported by Those Back
of the Latest Deal
LEAD AND ELECTRIC ADTAKCE
Ind Eome of the Specialties Eule Active
on a Figher Range.
A ELIGHT BEACTION AT THE CLOSE
Kev Yobk, Oct 27. Speculative in.
tercst at the opening of business at tbe
Stock Exchange to-day centered almost
entirely in New England, operators having
watched anxiously for the effect upon the
stock of the deal consummated yesterday
between the Boston and Maine and Bead
ing Companies. An excited crowd of
brokers surrounded the post when New
England was traded in on the floor of tbe
exchange and in the first 10 minutes of
business fully 20,000 shares of the stock
changed hands. Trie price opened at 44,
advanced to 45JJ, and quickly dropped to
44. Subsequently a rally to 45 ensued,
and the stock declined only 1 per cent from
this figure at the close, despite a general de
cline in the active list. This comparativo
steadiness is ascribed to the support Riven
by tlioso instrumental in bringing about the
latest deal, and who claim with a good deal
of confidence that the Sew Enjrland road
will be benefited materially by tho Boston
and JIatne-Reading combination.
Followlnc the early break in No w England
occurred a sudden urop in Distilling and
Cattle Feeding, the stock selling lrom63J
to 65 chiefly on sales on stop orders. The
remainder of tho active list held tolerably
firm and some of the specialties advanced
sharply. New York, Susquehanna and West
ern rose from 1S to 19 and the preferred
from 66V to 63K on unusually largo transac
tions. There are intimations that an im
portant deal is in progress, in which this
road will cut a prominent fleure. Colorado
Coal and Iron rose 1 to 4 General Elec
tric to 116, and National Le.id 1 to 43.
Toward the close there was renewed pres
sure against the list, the room traders being
tho principal sellers. Distilling and Cattle
Feeding, which had rallied to 67diopped
to 63. The reaction otherwise was i to 1
per cent, and the tone at the close was weak.
The decline had the effect or ridding tho
market of a large number of stop orders,
the existence of which has for a day or two
been lookoduDon ai a menace to the upward
movement. For this reason the bulls them
selves helped tho reaction along, believing
that the fenced sales by weak holders will
result in placing speculation on a firmer

LOWEST TRICE THIS 'YEAR
Tor Wheat on Generally depressing News
Corn and Oats Also tower Provisions
Sj mpathizc With Grain and Close "Weak.
CniCAQO. III., Oct. 27. Wheat to-day broke
below all former prices lor tho year, and
closed without any sign of improvement.
The quotation for December delivery de
scended to 72?c a bushel, and was only c
up Irom that at the end or the'session.
Compared with last night wheat is off Jc,
corn JfS'fo and oats J-J to c Rye was
again extremely weak and made another
break of from Je in December to 2c and 2o
In cash and May lespectlvcly. Pork de
clined 20c for Octoberand November and 5c
for January. Ltrd Is lower by 2c for
October nnd 10c for January. Ribs are un
changed for October and Novamberand5c
lower for January. r
For the llrst timo In many weeks there
was no vessel room taken for grain. The
boats were here, hut shippers held off for
fear of a blockade :it Buiralo. The air was
thick with rumors of sidetracks filled with
loaded cars of grain, nnd elevator to un
load them hard to find. It is not wonderful
that uuder the circumstances wheat ehonid
have been weak,- although, in truth, It la
BAid, the conditions referaed to were no
worse than they have been any time In the
past throe weeks. Buyers of wheat were
lew and far between. What little demand
there was came chiefly from the "short" In
terest, who had profits in their trades which
they telt inclined to take advantage of. The
receipts in Northwest were larger though
local arrivals were smaller and the with
drawal from 'store quite large. To offset
this, however, were the small clearances of
wheat and rather more favorable crop re
ports. The Ohio State report made the crop
some 5,000,000 bushels larger than tbe esti
mates derived from the Tjovernment per
centages, and the Cincinnati Price Current
says that autumn sown wheat is Improving
and is on a lairly satisfactory basis. Cables
m ere irregular and generally lower. There
was talk that tho receipts in Chicago would
have been heavier if the roads could havo
handled the cars. Rtnrnjrn capacity else
where was said to be nearly exhausted, and
this is expected to turn grain more heavily
in this direction.
Corn was nervous. Initial trades were at
about the final qnotations of yesterday, but
the receipts falling short of the predictions
and tho weather being cloudy caused a fair
trading, hut offers were soon increased and
prices sold off KJs"c, but rallied, recovering
more of the decline when the estimates for
to-morrow came in at 390 cars. The advance
brought out increased offerings and wheat
ruling easier corn sympathized.
In oats some strength was developed and
maintained throuirli buvinir bvriromlnont
houses, supposed to be for the purpose) of
covering a fine of "shorts," but top prices
resulted in increased speculative offerings,
and the caily fractional advance did not
Provisions opened firm, but weakened and
declined in svmpathy with the depression
in the grain pits. Trading was only moder
ately active. The manipulators did not
manipulate and the tallers thought it was
time to let go of put of their holdings.
Snipper were out of the market lor Lake
freights. The blockade at Buffalo and ina
bility to secure proper storage accommoda
tions at New York made shinments nnsate.
Bates were nominally steady at 2Vc for
wheat and 2c for corn to Buffalo.

And Eome of the Industrials ilso Exhibit
LOCAL iND GENERAL FINANCIAL HEWS
Thtjbsdat, Oct. 27.
An improving demand for local stocks
and bonds was noted to-day by a number of
tbe leading brokers. They all seemed con
vinced that interest in the market was
broadening, and that prices as a rule were
down where they were generally regarded
as low, but for all that they were loth to
predict any radical change either in busi
ness or prices until after the election.
The market to-day certainly reflected
very little new demand or inter
est, being dull and generally weak, but
there were indications apparent to close
observers which seemed to justify the ex
pectations and predictions of an early im
provement. No bill of particulars can be
given. It is sufficient to say that the best
people to follow believe nearly everything
on the list to be a good purchase, and they
select for specially good things such shares
as Duquesne tiactlon, P. & 13. traction, P.,
A. & M. traction. Central ti action, Philadel
phia Company and Westinghouse Airbrake.
The prominently weak spots on 'Change
were P. & it. tiactlon, Dnquesne traction nnd
P., A. & M. tmciion. and the strong ons
were Philadelphia Company, Ui ion Switch
and Signal, Electric. TJnttedStntes Glass and
Underground Cable. Airbrake was not
offered any lower, but the bidding was not
up to the previous day's mark and was
largely nominal. Ertwhile bulls are not very
much concerned about it, and the general
disposition, seems to be to let it alone for
a time. At least, a good many who fancy It
is a purchase at about 125 are lotting I dare
not wait upon I would. As it stands
it Is a very pretty gamble, with the
chances favoring operations on the long
side.'' If the company wins its suit against
tho New .York Brake Company, thus estab
lishing a coiurjlete monopoly; its stock will
he-' dirt chcari at 150; but If the suit
is lost the stock will unquestion
ably suffer n matorial docline. From
a Westinghouse standpoint the New York
Brake Company's apparatus Is a plain in
fringement, and it is said that a number of
neutral railroad people of prominence, who
understand each brake, have so declared It
The demand for Philadelphia Company
was sufficient to move It np a little and
make a strong close at the highest. The low
temperature of late has caused large In
crease in the household consumption of gas
and the failure of reports of a shortage of
among the shorts and stimulating purchases
for all accounts. The low price otuetroleum
is a benr on Wheeling Gas, but all the other
members or the group are firm.
Union Switch and Signal showed increased
strength on a repetition of the late stories
of a big business, favorable talk about the
litigation with tbe Johnson Company and a
fresh rumor about a new contract with
some Eastern railway system, possibly the
Reading, which latter is pteparing to equip
its lines with the best fafety appliances 'that
money can buy. Friends of the stock are
talking 25 for it in the near future.
Electric second nreferied was higher at
SSJi bid, the strength coming from the East.
Par was bid for the first preferred, 22 for tbe
unassented and 94 for the scrip.
The weakness in tho unlisted tractions
was without explanation, as usual. At the
same time tho talk of better things for them
was accompanied by hints of a dividend ou
Duquesne and P. & B. next January.
Philadelphia Company was In qnlte gen
eral demand and ruled stronger at 21 sales
and closed at 2121 An odd lot of
Pleasant Valley sold at 25J4 at the first call,
hut the .flnnl quotations were 25j25.

Eostoit, Mass, Oct. 27. It is recognized at
every hand that the new relations between
tbe Boston and Maine and Reading systems
are of the most powerful character and
mean much more than is currently believed.
The unknown quantity is the New York
and New England connection, and the belief
is gaining groud that in the position this
corporation will occupy to Boston apd
Maine and .Reading the advantages
will all accrue to the latter reads.
A party thoroughly cognizant of
the deal between the Boston and Maine
and Beading when queried concerning tbe
New England's relations with the allied
roads, while declining to say specifically
Jnst how the road stands in connection with
its big neighbors stated that there is but
one infcienco to be drawn and that is, that
the Reading ptjpplc, rather than guarantee
nxeit cnarges ana tue uiviaenas on the pre
ferred stock have purchased a controlling
interest in the New York and New England
Railioad ata price not exceeding $3,500,000.
Tho interest on this sum at 4 per cent, ls
less man 91W vw jjoi uiuiuiii, ul nearly $au,
000 less per year than the dividend on the
preferred stock. '
New York, Oct. 27. At a meeting at the
Reading Kallroad office in this city to-dav
of the Eastern and Western coal sales
agents, it was dpeided to make tho Novem
ber allotment 3,000,000 tons, which is 1,000,000
less than the allotment for tho curiont
month. A proposition to advance prices
was voted down. President MeLeod, of the
Reading, was at the meeting. Ho nid trade
was good East and West, things urn running
smoothly and he deemed it advisable to let
existing prices prevail lor the present at all
New York, Oct. 27. A meeting of the rep
resentatives of the lines out or New York
nnd into Canada was held at the office of the
Canadian Pacific Railroad Company. Rates
covering wool, molasses and tea were agreed
upon to and from New York and Canadian
points east ol Toronto. Inequalities in
freight charges were adjusted and rates
were put on an even basis.
Bostojt. Oct. 27 The New England traffic
managers' meeting to-day was presided over
by Chairman Midgley, of the Western
Freight Association. It was agreed to re
store rates November20, the close of navi

tbe past week; and what anxiety there may
have been for the balance ot this year is dis

practically baro of supplies for November

Under the leadership of the Southern fur

GRAIN AND FEED WEAKER
Though There Are Signs of a Coming Ad
vanceGrocery Staples and Dairy Prod
ucts Very Firm Demand for Dressed
Poultry Steadily Increasing.
Thursday, Oct 27.
General trade is progressing finely
throughout Pittsburg and dependent sec
tions, though the interest in the Presi-
deutal contest increases as the day of elec
tion approaches and to a certain , extent is
adversely affecting business. Conditions
are generally stimulating, however, espe
cially tbe steady improvement in the iron
and steel trade, and the distributive move
ment will likely continue full and free right
up to the close of the year.
Notwithstanding grain and feed have been
considered, too low for some time past,
prices Continue to decline, though Indica
tions that a turn is near at hand are not
Grocery staples are firm and active.
Cofleo is very strong and the statistical
position of raw sugar Is bullish enough to
Justify a higher range for refined. Rice is
In good domnnd; molasses and syrups are
moving firmly and sales of oils increase as
the evenings lengthen.
Butter (creamery) is in scant supply; eggs
(strictly fresh) are hard to get and cheese is
uteady to firm.
Potatoes! are firmer, most dealers asking
an advance of 5c per bushel.
Dressed poultry is in active demand and
prices are higher.
According to one of the local millers flour
Is selling rather moro freely.
Fish are firmly held, and mackerel are
quoted higher In the East.
A Chicago dispatch says: "Over 10,000
freight cars aro loaded with grain and stand
on the. Chicago tracks of Western roads.
This number is Increasing, and there is not
vacant storage room tor a car of it. It is
.impossible to move it by lake, as reports
indicate that every elevator from Toledo to
Buffalo is full. Shippers uro not prepared to
pay the rail rato to tho extent of moving tho
grain freely, although some of the Eastern
lines are rofusmg large shipments because
they cannot j;et their cars back quickly. A
worse Diock-auo than tnatof last fall can
hardly be avoided."

Flour in the Northwest.
JIiWEAPOLis, Mixit., Oct. 7. The North
rvestirn Miller says: Thero was a small ln
creae in the amount of flour ground lass
week, tho figures coming next to tho unpre
cedented run of the week ended October 8.
The total was 224.460 harrel?, or 37,410
bnriels dally. F. r a week back tho
flour market has been pretty dull and the
mills havo probably not more than enough
tales to offset half the output. Most firms,
however, have a considerable number of or
ders accumulated, and tney are now drawing
partly fiom them to keep going. Foreigners
uro still backward and do not buy very
fieely. They wautpntent mainly nnd take
hold when price are made to snit them.
Haters drugs badly, nnd low grade and red
do;; aro' almost unsalable. Quotations ou
thN account uro gradually sagging and pre
sent an extremely low range.

For the Armament and Equipment of the
Militia of the Country.
"Washington, Oct. 27. General lUag
ler, Chief of Ordnance, to-day submitted to
the "War Department his an nual report of
the operations of his bureau during the
year. He calls attention to the inadequacy
of the general appropriation for arming and
equipping the militia, which at the last ses
sion of Congress was still further reduced.
The highly improved arms of the present
day cost more than three times as much as
arms cost in 1808, when the appropriation
was $200,000. Last session this amount,
which has been annually appropriated lor 84
years, was cut dowii to $175,000 an amount
entirely too small to meet the demands
made by the States for allotments.
