THE MARKET BASKET.
The Lull That Follows Holidays Kow on in Mail Trades. PEDIT AND VEGETABLES GO SLOW. An Active Demand for Fish, Oysters, Poul try and Flowers. APPETITE FOS GAME ON TEE TVAXE OrricE or Pittsburg dispatch. J Friday, January 11, 1SS9. J The lull -which always follows holiday trade is fully on as retards retail trade for market basket materials. "Shadow and shine is lile." Through the closing -week of the dead year and the opening week of the new, tradespeople had a fair share of tbe shine. This has been a week of shadow, not only in trado lines, but as regards tbe terrible calamity which has befallen our city. The calamity be fore which all classes stand in awe, and which has brought sorrow and anguish into many hearts and homes, has also bad its effect on trade. The uniform report which is heard from dealers in meats, fruits and vegetables is that the week's trade has been very slow. The spring-like weather has, no doubt, had the effect of restricting demand in many lines of market basket filling. Everything Cheaper. At the fish and oyster stalls a fair week's trade Is reported. Florists also report that business has been fair to middling. The fancy prices which ruled for flowers during Christ mas week, when it was impossible to meet ue mands,no longer rule. Prices, as will be seen by quotations, are drifting back to ante-holiday figures. Tulips of rarest beauty ire in supply for the first time this season. The drift of eggs for the past week has been Heartily downward. The same is true of cream ery butter The great scarcity of fancy coun try rolls at this season keeps prices of this arti cle up, notwithstanding the downward tenden cv of other grades. "The appetite for game is evidently on the wane,judgiug from reports of dealers. And strange to say, demand lor old reliable meats does not grow in proportion. At the Diamond .Market butcher stalls there was general com plaint that tbe volume of trade had fallen be low that of last week. Following are retail prices given by dealers in materials for Satur days market basket: Meats. The prices called for at the Diamond Markets remain unchanged.

The magnitude of the railway business of the country may be estimated from the fact that the employes of all kinds, officers and men, form an army not far from 785,000 strong. Eighteen of tbe States have each over 3,000 miles of track. Over7,000miles of rails were laid last year, and 36,000 new men called into the service. This is an encouraging fact for railway men and those desirous of entering tho railway pro fession to bear in mind, and it is alo encourag ing to tlioie'who are seeking promotion to re member that the number of officials of all ranks must continue to increase H A N n 1 N R The laieU Metropolitan inno UrtlSUiSlU vationt arc fully described in The DisrATCir to be issued to-morrow. A POPULAR SCHEME. Eeal Estate Dealers Generally in Love' With the Exchange Movement. VERY LITTLE OPPOSITION TALK. Gas Stocks ActiTe and Steady With a Steadily Increasing; Demand. TBE BEAKS KULE TUB OIL MARKET The proposition to establish a Real Estate Exchange in Pittsburg, as noted in this de partment ot The Dispatch yesterday, meets with general favor. A number of the principal dealers were interviewed on the subject, and they all agreed that it would be a good thing, supplying a long-felt want. Among other advantages which it -would possess, as pointed out by the gentlemen in question, would be the placing of the real estate business on astrictly legitimate basis, the same as bonds, stocks and produce. This would be productive of a spirit of fairness that is sorely wanting under the present system of every man for himself and Old Cloven Foot for the hindmost This would be one result. Another would be to stimulate business by insuring owners of property prompt and cqnitable treatment. They would no longer be compelled to resort to huckstering to make a sale. They would know just what to except, and could make their calculations accordingly. It would save them time and trouble. The argument that it would not succeed be cause a certain class of dealers do not want to make their business public, is answered by pointing to the success of similar organizations in the Eastern cities, where this objection has been overcome. There are about 200 real estate dealers In Pittsburg. Of this number 75 or 100 would bo eligible to membership under the sifting rules it is proposed to adopt Jnst where the line will be drawn has not been determined further than ' that the qualifications will be character, ability and standing In the business community. De tails will be formulated when the committee re turns from the East GAS STOCKS IEAD. Philadelphia, Cbarticrs nnd Wheeling in Good Demand and nigher.

After the first two hours the tendency was downward, although several attempts were made to buoy up prices. What little business was done was of a purely professional char acter. The close was weak and Jfc below that of Thursday. The opening price was 87Jc highest STJlc, lowest 86, closed at 86a Thurs day's clearings, 512,000 barrels. Operators nesitate to express an opinion as to the future course of tho market Available facts indicate a bullish outlook. The retire ment of a large number of certificates natur ally narrows the working margin. Cause and effect, supply and demand, prevail in oil as in everything else. The more the cheaper, the less the dearer. Scarcity, real or imaginary, stimulates demand ana demand makes prices. If the bull argument be true and known facts seem to bear them out that tho working mar gin has been cnt down, a btiffer market is inevitable. A. B.

Business Crippled by the Uncertainty Attend ing the Itnllroad Conference. New Yokk, January 11. Except for a pe riod of moderate activity in the forenoon, the stock market to-day was equally as dull and uninteresting as that of yesterday. The prog ress made by the railroad presidents and the bankers in their ta9k of restoring the prop erties to a dividend paying basis did not meet with any response from the speculators of the street The market still waits for more pro nounced action and the dealings remain almost purely professional. This inaction in the face of tho general ex pectation that the action of the presidents yesterday would result in a marked improve ment in values of securities caused much dis appointment on tbe street and had it not been ior tne liberal foreign purchases a weaK mar ket would probably have succeeded. There was no weakness apparent, however, even with the prevailing dullness, and the traders at one time thought that they detected buying from Gould sources. Little evidence was shown, however, that any large Interest was doing anything, but there was a slow but steady hardening of values which carried nrices In some stocks mi as mnch as 1 ner cent The improvement was most noticeable in the Grangers, and those stocks overshadowed all tbe rest of the list, although there was activity in Erie, which was bought largely for foreign account The market opened with a show of anima tion, and first prices were all higher than last evening's figures, although the gains were con fined to small fractions, except in the cases of Atchison, Burling, on and Pullman, which were , 1 and 2 per cent higher respectively. Lacka wanna took tho lead in the general upward movement which followed, though its advance was only J per cent, and in the others still smaller fractions. Most of the gains were afterward wiped out, and the market subsided into the usual dullness. Later there was a renewal ot the upward tendency, and before noon all tbe active list had again reached the abovo first prices. Tho trading exhibited a steadily declining volume, however, and no progress was made until the last hour except in the Grangers, in which St Paul was most conspicuous. Just previous to the close there was more animation, and every thing again moved up slightly, the market clos ing dull but firm to strong at fractions better than the opening figures. On the whole, the dealings in railroad bonds exhibited more featnres than those 111 shares, althongh tbe business done fell short of tbe totals of the previous few days, reaching only $1,794,000. Erie seconds were again active, but failed to move to any material extent, while the Colorado Coal sixes developed marked ani mation and strength, and recovered a portion of the losses of the past few days. The Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe bonds resumed their advance, and to-night are nearly up to the figures prevailing before the late scare. Tho Erie seconds furnished S171,000. the Colorado Coal sixes S126.000, and the Atlantic and Pacific fours $97,000 to the day's total. The general list was firm.

Friday, January 11, 1889. J Country Produce, Jobbing Prices. To-day has been anything but a good Friday to produce commission merchants, judging from the uniform reports of quiet trade. We are forced again to lower our quotations on eggs, which very rarely touch as low figures at this tlmo of the year. One dealer professes a readiness to furnish the best in the market at IB cents. Advices from New York are that creamery butter fS down to bedrock, and that any changes here after must be toward higher prices. The de mand for poultry has eased up slightly, but supply is still small. With the winter nearly half gone, and no old-time blizzards coming to the front, tho trade in fruits and vegetables so far has cut a sorry figure, as compared with ex pectations of commission men. Dealers in country produce are pessimistic by a large ma jority.

The stago of water yesterday afternoon reached 10 feet 2 inches. The Dick Fulton arrived yesterday morning from below with a tow of empties. A number of the boats were partially dis abled by the recent cyclone. The packets, in particular, suffered the most They had to seek shelter near the shore, and were away be hind in arriving in Pittsburg. It is estimated that over 600,000 bushels of coal were started to the lower ports on the present rise yesterday morning. The following named boats with tows 'eft: Percy Kelsy, with 13 barges and boats; Fred Wilson, Diamond, J. S. Mercer, J. A. Blackmore, one of Fawcett's, the Hornett, the Sam Clark with 12 barges and 5 coal boats. The 5 coal boats of the Clark will be left at Cincinnati to be taken below by the J. F. Walton. The wharf from Smithfield to Market streot has been made a dumping ground for the bricks, beams and deoris'taken from the Wood street wreck. So much material has been de posited on the levee that rivermen are begin ning to complain. The packets are reached with difficulty by passengers, and river freight traffic is almost interrupted. Gangs of tramps, newsies and loafers stood around watching the rubbish, ready to pounce on any valuable that might be discovered. River Telesrums. rSPECIAL TELZORAU TO TBI DISPATCH.
