THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1893.
WHISKY QUITE FRISKY
Leading All the Other Stocks in Foint
EVERYTHING ADVANCES EARLY,
a Eeaction Follows and the Market
BAILBOAD BONDS GENERALLY STKOXG
Kew York, 2ov. 17. The stock mar
ket, though irregular in the early trad
ing, was in the main higher. The advance
in the leading railway shares was equal to
Yt P cent, but some of the specialties
scored a much greater improvement. Dis
tilling and Cattle Feeding sold up 1;
Canadian Pacific. J; Dulutb, South Shore
and Atlantic, J for the common and S for
tho preferred; Edison Illuminating, , and
Ohio Southern, 1 per cent.
Tho upward movement in prices brought
Tory little increase of business and the lack
of enthusiasm on the bull side finally in
duced the bei-rs to make a vigorous demon
stration against the list. Omaha common
fell off 1 per cent to 49. The lemaindor
of tho list -yielded only J to 1 per cent de
spite the pounding bv the bears and
the marketing of a Quantity of
long stock. The strength ot sterling ex
change, which led to soino very stiong talk
about exports or gold in the noar tuture,was
used with 801110 effoct against the uiaifcet.
On the other hand.however, it Is to be noted
that banks and trust companies aro placing
their funds freely on time at rates lower
than those current oflatc. Tho Industrials,
if anvthing, received bettor support than
the railway list. There was heavy purchas
ing of Distilling and Cattle Feeding for both
local and Western account, and the stock
led all others in point ot activity. The mar
ket closed weak.
Railway bonds were cenerally firm. The
sales were f 1,430,000. Atchison bonds were
weak. The Heading bonds were weaker.
Albany and Susquehanna consol 6s rose 2 to
119; Lackawanna 7s of 19G7, 2 to 133: Georgia
Pacific consol 5s declined 2 to S3.
Europe bought a few stocks at the opening
and were sellers of Heading stacks and
bonds on a rumor current abroad that the
road would deiault on the interest on the
second and third income bonds. This rumor
Is no doubt false, but still some bonds were
thrown overboard for London account. The
exchange market lias been very strong of
late, and about 1 o'clock they started a ru
mor that about $1,000,000 gold u as to go lor
ward. We have asked several bankers and
they tell us that tho exchango market is
very firm, but as far as they can see no gold
will be shipped this week If any gold ship
ments go lorw ard, it would have a bad effect
here, as the community at large are not ac
customed to seeing gold shipped at this
time of the year. J. S.Bache Jt Co. to Oakley
bonas were quiet. Close

HOG PRODUCTS HIGHER,
But the Cereals Close Withont Showing
Any Important Change.
Chicago.Nov. 17. IIos products soared majestically-
skyward to-day. To-night, com
pared with last evening, pork is up S2c,
laid, 29c, and short nbs. 15c The grain mar
kets averaged higher, hut closed without
much change since yesterday.
Considerable excitement attended the
trading in provisions. Tho receipts of hogs
attheyaids were under the estimates at
24,090, and shorts made vifforous efforts to
cover. The returns of the packing of the
West for the week showed a reduction of
200,000 hogs. This was offset by a reduction
iu the export movement of products, which
for the past week amounted to 18.177,003, as
acainst20.OD,000 pounds last year. At the
Improvement In prices there wns a little
more property for sale, and prices settled
"back (.lightly, though the market exhibited
considerable firmness at the close, "with
moderate quantities airaln selling at outside
With wet weather expected to curtail the
receipts, stronger cables and good buving,
the early trading was eaiily at an advance
on last night's close in wheat, but ttho local
receipt were in excess or the estimate, and
Pardridge sold fieelyand hammered the
market wiping "ut all the sain. Then when
the Clnclnnnti .Frtce CurretU't crop summary
came In faying that tue interior deliveries
wore tailing off at a rate which indicated
that the visible supply was lapidly ncaring
the maximum tho maiket again turned
strong. The liberal exports irom the sea
lioard amounting to 462.000 bushels of wheat
and 65,000 barrels of flour, also proved a
strong lactor, while the market was further
helped by the strength in com and provi
sions. Corn started higher, influenced by tne
firmness in wheat and the wet weather,
which was liable to cut off deliveries, but
the recelpti were la exoeis of the estimates.
and, wheat weakening, there was free sell
ing carrying prices off. Later another bulge
in wheat and a spurt iu provisions sent corn
up again, but it azain weakened. The Cin
cinnati Price Current said that the interior
deliveries of corn were likely to fall off, but
that the stocks in sight were ample.
' Oats were fairly active in a range of is,
and closed easy at Jo below yesterday's
Freights wero weaker with more boats on
the market for loads. Kates declined lo to

AIRBRAKE IS STRONG
And Lustre Mining Company Shows
Something Akin to Strength.
NEARLY ALL OTHERS ARE WEAK
Under ths Lead of Electric, Wheeling Gas
and P. & B. Traction.
DULLNESS STILL A FE0MINENT FEATURE
Thursday, Nov. 17.
The market for local securities to-day
was as dull and uninteresting as a thrice
told talc It was also weak, what trad
ing there was being at lower prices gener
ally ana the quotations established by bids
reflecting a lack of support in nearly every
thing on the list The only items in which
anything approximating Btrength was wit
nessed were "Westinghouse Airbrake and
Luster Mining Company. Airbrake was
undoubtedly legitimately strong, but any
one who knows anything at all about the
market knows that Lustre is a very peculiar
stock. One ol its peculiarities is the ease
with which it responds to light bidding one
day and equally as light offerings the next.
One day it is apparently strong; the next It
has a very bad attack of blind staggers.
There Is no such thing as sizing it up cor
rectly. Eleotric lea in the weakness, fol
lowed by nearly all the other shares of the
active list, though only in Electric second
preferred, Wheeling Gas and P. & B. traction
were there anv noteworthy declines.
vv neeiing uas sola at i tne lowest point
touched in some time: Westinghouse Eleo
tric second preferred sold off a full point at
37; Luster sold at 9J, closing at 9X9;
Westinghouse Electric scrip sold at 92 per
cent, and P. & B. traction fold down to 24Ji,
with more offered at the same price.
The unlisted street railway securities
closed as follows: P. & B. traction, 24KQ21K:

Westinghouse Electric scrip closed at

The New York Evening Post says: It will
be observed that the Bank or England
gained heavily this week, both on gold bal
ance and in surplus reserves, and that it is
now much stronger than it was a year ago.
But the bank's strength has clearly been
obtained at the exDense of the outside mar
ket, the very heavy gold shipments of the
Rothschilds to Russia having been carefully
ananged so as to avoid recourse to the
bank. Meantime continental exchange is
still against London, and next month Aus
ti la begins in earnest its work of specie ac
cumulation, an event for which the London
bank is doubtless preparing.

THE NEW OIL POOL
Two Great Wells Flowing Yesterday Two
Miles Southwest of McDonald The
Erhmentront TV ell at Undercllff Is Dry
In the Third Sand-Tfest Virginia 'and
The big wells southwest of McDonald
borough created considerable comment yes
terday and It now seems to be the general
impression that a field of considerable
dimensions may soon be opened up in that
Tho No. 2 well of Knox Brothers & Co., on
the Scott farm, was reported last evening to
be doing nearly 100 banels an hour, al
though the pipe line leports placed it at
only 70 an hour. Additional tanks were
being put up at the well.
The indications are that it will be still
bigger when drilled deeper into the sand.
It is located neaily700 feet east of the first
well on the Scott property which is, and nas
been, doing nearly 100 barrels a day since it
was nr.it uniieu in.
The Woodland Oil Company's No. 2 Scott,
which came in a couple of weeks ago at the
rate of 50 banels an hour, was drilled deeper
into the firth sand yesterday for about ten
minutes when it increased to 75 barrels an
hour nnd the drill was stopped. It i also
located east of the other wells of the Wood
land Oil Company which did not show for
more that 150 barrels a day.
Judging from the location of all of these
wells, which are a couple of miles southwest
of McDonnld.it would appear that the first
wells drilled in that region were loc ted on
the western edge of tile pool, and those
which have Just been brought in wero on
the rich streak, a few hundied yards to the
Jennings & Ca's No. 5 on the Matthews
heirs larm was drilled through the Gordon
sand yesterday and they expect the fifth
Increased by a Shot.
The Ruppel OH Company shot its No. 1 on
the Moore (arm, in northeast McCurdy, yes
terday, and it started off, in response, at 35
barrels an hour.
The Florence OH Company is down 600 feet
in its No. 2 on the Miller farm, south of the
Meise pool. They expect to get the fifth
sand Mondny on the Sproul farm, back of
Oakdale. In the Sistersville field they have
become discouraged with some of their
leases southwest of town and are now drill
In? north or the village.
Patterson & Sohn's well on the Erhmen
trout at Undercllff. located 1,000 feet south
of the (Cessler well, was drilled through the
third sand yesterday and is dry in that
A. J. Mercer & Co. have started a couple
of wells a mile and a half southeast of Cor
ning in Perry county, O., which is 60 miles
west of Sistersville.
The Wells Farm Oil Company Is drilling
Nos. 7, 8, 9 and 10 on the Eph. Wells farm be
low Sistersville. They range from 600 to
1,200 feet in depth.
It was reported last evening that the
Philadelphia Company's well In the Mc
Curdy field, located on tho Martin Clever
farm, was flowing, but it could not be veri
fied. The Gauges Wednesday.
The production of McDonald was 20,000

TRADE GENERALLY GOOD,
Bat the High Temperature- Is Restricting
the Movement of Strictly Seasonable
Goods Eggs and Oats Continue to Show
an Upward Drift,
Thursday, Nov. 17.
The mild weather is hurting local whole
sale trade more or less, particularly along
the produce commission line, where poultry,
game and nearly everything else seasonable
is suffering because of a continued compara
tively high temperature. The beautiful
weather is bringing out crowds of people
and the retail stores are thronged irom
morning until night, but they are looking
around for holiday novelties and are buying
sparingly of strictly fall and winter goods.
In a general way, however, reports show a
fairly satisfactory state of affairs in all lines

Effects or tho Election on Fig Tin and Tin
New York, Nor. 17. Special. A special
cable to the Iron Age says: In pig Iron war
rants there has been some upward move
ment in prices, Scotch selling to lis 11K1
Cleveland, 50sl0Jdana homatite to 16s 10d.
The report that stocks have decreased to
352,000 tons Scotch and 15.000 tons Cleveland
pig, had some effect in promoting the better
feeling. Pig tin has dropped 1517s 6d dur
ing the week under the influence or returns
confirming the election of the Democratio
candidate for President. The selling was
chiefly of futures, bat buyers of cash lots
have steadily followed the markets with
purchases instead of sales and absorbed con
siderable outside stock. This intermediate
unloading, it is figured, places stocks in
fewer bands than be lore.
The tin plate market has shown greater
strength, due chiefly to the result of the
elections In the States. There has
been some pressure to sell on the part of tho
holders of old iron, and among other quota
tions as low as 50s has been made on flange
PIG IBON STEADY.
Billets Quiet, Structural Iron Dull and the
Pipe Trade Active.
New York, Nov. 17. Special The Iron
Age says: 'Pig iron is steady in all the lead
ing markets,, but is quiet so far as new
transactions are concerned. Bayers have
well covered and sellers are comfortably off
for orders. Billets have been quiet, with
lurther reports of good prices paid for spot
stock. Muck bars are showing an easier
tendency in Eastern Pennsylvania, but are
reported as Being steady and qnite active in
the Pittsburg district. Eastern steel rail
mills record the first moderate sized trans
action for some time, and the Chicago mills
claim to be well supplied with orders lor
some time to come. Bars are weakening a
littlo in the Eastern and in the Chicago mar
kets. Structural iron and steel are dull in all
sections so far as new business is concerned.
The pipe trade has received some very good
orders lately and shows considerable activ
ity, with a possibility of some advance in

INFORMATION FOE PATTIS0N.
State Board of Charities Getting Ready
for tho Legislature.
James B. Scott went to Philadelphia last
evening to attend a meeting of the Board of
Charities and the Lunacy Committee.
Governor Pattison has asked the board for
inlormation to make the recommendations
needed in his message to the Legislature.
Since the last session a farm was bought
and buildings are being erected for a per
manent home for the State insane. Mr.
Scott said he had received applications for
aid from a number of the charitable insti
tutions in Western Pennsylvania. He put
them in a box until he has time to look
over them, so tnat he was unable to say
how the requests compared with those
made two years ago.
"In the last Legislature," said Mr. Scott,
"the farmers were in the saddle, and as a
measure of relief for them the school ap
propriations were increased from $2,000,000
to 85,000,000, making 10,000,000 for the
two years. This practically gave the in
terior counties their schools ior nothing,
ily impression is that the granger element
will not be so strong in the coming Legis
lature. It may be possible that the school
appropriations will be reduced a little. Ow
ing to the demand made on the State
revenues the applications for aid
were considerablycut. The board will go
over the applications in a short time, and
prepare its report lor the Legislature. The
trouble with us is that we are working In
the dark. We haven't any idea how muoh
money is at the disposal of the State, and
the Treasurer is not in a position to en
Death "Was Inevitable.
An unknown man was struck and instant
ly killed by the east-bound express at Fair
oaks on the Fort Wayne road last night.
The man had just stepped from the west
bound track to get out of the way of the
west-bound express and stepped directly In
front of the other train. The remains were
brought to Allegheny City on the express.
