THE PITTSBT3HG DISPATCH. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY IT. 1889.
13 : A BUSINESS SURTEY. The Salient Features of Local Trade During the Past Week. MOXEY GOING OUT FIFTH AVENUE. A Leading Banker Announces a Radical Departure in Interest Charges- THE DOLLAK OIL HEX GET A BLACK EIE Local business the past weefc was only moderately active. The principal event was an effort on the part of the bulls in oil to reach the dollar line, but they failed, the highest point reached being 9. on Friday. Yesterday the bears got in their work, and dragged the price down to 91 at the opening and 89Jf at the close. The contest between the opposing elements was sharp and excit ing and neither would admit defeat. The market left off in good shape ibr a renewal ofthefitjht. Stocks were without special feature. Electric was higher at the close and Philadelphia Gas weaker. Changes In other local securities were of trifling im portance. Heal eslatc dealers and agents had their hands full of business all week, and made a large number of sales of small properties. They reported some large deals under way. but withheld particulars. This branch of business led all others in point of activity. Money was plentj and easy at the usual rates. The best borrowers wero od men. There was no im provement in the iron market, but manufac turers expressed confidence that trade would pick up in a short time. They were not dis posed to cut prices to effect sales. Capitalists are always'oa the lookout for'se cure and profitable investments. Just now they seem to give real estate the preference. Having bought up about all the available prop erty on Penn avenue. Liberty and other streets, they are turning their attention to Fifth ave nue, above the Court Houe, where several im portant deals have been made within the past few weeks. Concerning this movement a real estate dealer said yesterday: "These men are wise, lldon't know of a better held for invest ment. True, it is limited, but there a:e many opportunities there for making large profits. Houses and lots in that part of town that now sell for 5,000 or $10,000 mil, id my judgment, bo worth $15,000 cr $jy,000 in ten years. I know ol seral recent transactions there that will prove a bonanza to the imestors. One long headed capitalist of my acquaintance has placed a great deal of money in that part of town within a short time." "Has the talk of removing the hump any thing to do with the boom out there?" "The removal of the hump would certainly enhance the value of property above the Court House, but the investments I speak of were not made in anticipation of such action. It is a desirable part of the cit getting better every year and values there rnu increase, hump or no hump. It has been under the ban ,so long that property is comparatively cheap. Capitalists are beginning to see this, and are striking while the iron is hat." "Have you had any applications for loans to day?" was asked of a Fourth streot banker yes terday. "Very few," be replied. "The weather is too bad for people to turn out" "Have you an established rate of interest from which you never deviate, or do you make exceptions according to the nature of the col lateral the better the security the lower the rate?" "Six per cent legal interest is the only rate we have never more and never less. I don't believe in variable rates. It's not the way to do business. hen we have plenty of money we keep it until we get our terms; when we run short, which seldom happens, we distribute it around at the same invariable rate. This is the'oue-pnee system, which is becoming very popular in other branches of business. I find it pays in the long run." "There has been considerable money loaned lately at 5 per cent," "1 know it, but I think it's bad policy. On Its face it seems to be in favor of the borrower, but really it is not. For Instance, a man bor rows $10,000 to-day for fonr months at 5 or 4J4 per cent. Fay day comes around and he finds he has no money to meet the obligation. He goes to the bank and asks for a renewal of the note. The banker says: 'Certainly, tir, I will renew our note, but I cin't do it on the same terms. Money is scarce and higher. I will have to charge jouS percent.' In this way he gets more than legal interest for his money. When a maa borrows from us he has full assurance that be can renew at the original rate" He added another objection to cheap money that it was the parent of extravagance and frequently was the cause of financial disaster. The statement that the bank in question never deviates from its established rate of interest that the rate is as unchangeable as a law of the Medes and Persians will be a surprise to most readers. It is certainly a wide departure from a venerable custom. A Homewood citizen, whose wagon stuck in the mud yesterday morning, vented his wrath in a fashion something like this: "I have lived here for about ten years, and paid taxes during all that time. What have we to show for this money? Look at the roads. A goose would mire in almost any of them. I suppose it wJU take me two or three hours to get my wagon on solid ground. This is a great loss of time. If it happened only once in a long while I wouldn't mind it so much, but it's a regular thing out here. It's outrageous. We would do better out of the city, for then we could help ourselves. When candidates come around to solicit our rotes they make all sorts of promises that the roads shall be repaired, that we shall have ample police protection and everything else we want but when the elec tion is o er they go back on their word, and we bear no more about the improvements until the time for the next election comes around. We have spotted some of those fellows and they may hear from us sometime." Having unburdened his mind, be started off in quest of help to get his wagon on terra Anna. The picture he drew of the condition of the roads is strictly true. STOCK DEALINGS. Electric Wind Up ike Week Stronger and Fhllodrlplila Gn Weaker. The stock market was fairly active yesterday, and it closed with a firm feeling in most of tne shares traded in, and without much change in prices from Friday. Westmghouse Electric -as slightly higher and closed firm. Central Traetiou was also" a trifle stronger, at 23JJ bid. Union Switch and Signal was steady, at IS bid for 100 shares. Reliable brokers say this is the most promising low-priced stock on the market. It has a substantial backing. The only stocks that Ehowed special n eakness were Philadel phia and Wheeling Gas. both of which were lower. La Nona was barely steady. A raid was made on bank stocks, but none of them were captured. A Pittsburg Ann has within tliepait ten dajs boucht "J00 Pittsburg and Western preferred at lfa16Jg, and 1,000 com mon at MJ!. This mdicati s an approaching era of attiwty in a stock that has been practi cally pigeonholed for a long time. Bids and oilers were: JIOENIJiG. Bid.

MONEY'S ALL EIGHT, But a Better Borrowing Demand Would Tlckl- tbo Bankers. The local money market yesterday presented the fame general features as on the previous days of the week, with the exception, perhaps, that counter buinesswas less active on ac count of the rain. Call loans continue to be quoted at 5g6, and time paper at 67. There w ere very few applications for discounts. Bank ers expect to find full employment for their I idle funds a soon as the spring trade fairly opens.

Persistent Hammering Makes Dollar Oil Boomers Feel Very Blue. The short session at the Oil Exchange yester day was characterized by activity and excite ment, the closing scenes being of a very ani mated description. The bears forced the fight ing from the start, and hammered the price down from 91 at the opening to 89 at the close. There was heavy selling both here and at Oil City, the latter being credited with caus ing the break. "There is no change in the general situation," said a broker yesterday evening. "Everything continues bullish. The slump to-day as caused by the longs. They couldn't resist the temptation to unload, and some of them made a good thing out of it The market is not broken; it is only crippled. It will be on its feet again next week."

Interesting Statistics Prom Trnde Reports of the Past Tear. Ihe final statistics of foreign commerce for the calendar ear 18S8 have just been issued, and disclose some interesting features. For instace, the decrease in imports of steel rails was 77,000 tons, or more than half; in pig iron 271,000 tons, again more than half; in iron ore 603,000 tons, or more than half; in steel ingots 463,000,000 pounds, or about two-thirds, and in wire rods 106,000.000 pounds, or one-third. Nev ertheless there was an increase of 19.000,000 pounds in imports of cotton ties, and 32,000,000 pounds in imports of tin plates, which tends strongly to sustain the claim that in respect to these articles the existing tariff is unjust to borne producers, since these can be heavily im ported even when the materials from which they are made aro to a large extent excluded. Another feature of importance is thatimports of wool were larger in quantity but lower in value, particularly in the carpet class, while the imports of woolen goods increased over 10 per cent, or $4,900,000, ana principally In the miscellaneous articles not specially enumer ated, many of which evade the specific duties. In this branch also it is evident that the duties do not serve their object, and prove ineffective to prevent iraudulent imports of other classes of wool as being for carpet use. and imports of many kinds of woolen goods through evasion of duties which are permitted by the law or by Treaury rulings. The imports of raw materials for manufac ture wero generally large. Those of flax and substitutes increased 41.000 tons, or one quarter: of copper ore 1,300.(00 pounds, and of coal 263,000 tons, or one-third; of raw silk the import; increased 671,000 pounds, or more than one-sixth. HuUii Eome other articles there was but little increase, as in soda ash; or a large loss, as In saltpeter, 2,400,000 pnunds.more than a quarter: or in glvcerme, 0.000,000 pounds, nearly one-half. In fancy articles there was a decrease, and in silks, uines, spirits and most other luxuries, but small increase, if any, so tlfat on the whole the imports of manufactured products In the ordinary sense must have de creased, while the imports ot materials some what increased. The Imports of food were, on the whole, somewhat larger, sugar increasing 10,000,000 pounds, and freh fish (exclusive of salmon) increasing 15,000,000 pounds. The imports of free fruits also increased, butof dutiable fruits there was a coi.siderable decrease. In barley a decrease of 1,700.000 bushels appeared, and the imports ot coffee were largely increased In quantity, about one-quarter, but the price was so much lower than in the preceding j ear that the increase In value was small. A decrease appears in the quantity of egg imported, but a considerable increase in potatoes; the im ports of hops Declined 4,000.000 pounds, or about one-half, but in nee there was an in crease of 86,000,000, or more than SO per cent SLIGHTLY LOWER. Stocks Raided The Grangers Stand Firm Heavy Selling Orders Failure of a Bis: Bear Railroad Bonds Ac tivo Closing; Gener ally Strong1. New York, February 16. The stock market was somewhat irregular to-day, but on the whole displayed a strong tone with a fair vol ume of business, although most of the list was slightly lower at the close in consequence of the bear raid. There was a very confident feel ing this morning, but there was an attempt made to get the Grangers down again by means ot manipulation from London, houses with European connections being the heaviest sellers, while St. Paul, at which the drive was specially made, was much loner in that mar ket Inquiry from this side, however, elicited tbo information that the selling orders oriel- nated from this side, and the impression made upon prices was entirely insignificant The adices from the West were reassuring. At the Stock Exchange the suspension of a noted bear trader was announced and about 10,000 shares of stock were bought in under the rule for his account The general list showed great resistance to the efforts to get prices own and rallied handsomely from the lowest figures when the pressure was removed, while Erie was conspicuous for both activity and strength and led the upward movement in prices and the entire list in point of animation. A majority of the active tdiares are fractionally lower than last evening, but the only marked chance was in Erie, which is up 1 per cent The railroad bond market was active, the sales aggregating $1,541,000, out of which Chi cago, Burlington and Qutncy fives contributed 8218,000 and the Louisville. New Albany and Chicago consols $108,000. The trading in the last mentioned bonds was the feature of the day, and tbey were specially strong, rising 2 per cent to 10L Tho sales of bonds for the week aggregated $10,629,000, against $14,821,000 for last week.

GUARD NOTES. Lieutenant Chaeles E. Brown, of-Allegheny, was in New York during the week. THE State Fenc'ibles realized $4,000 from the ball tbey gave last week. Quite a neat little sum. Captain Williah Awl, of Mt Washing ton, leaves for Cleveland next Wednesday on a pleasure trip. Next Tuesday night the surgeons of the Eighteenth will examine all recruits not here tofore examined. Several new contracts came to Pittsburg during the wpek for armor plate and axles for gun carriages for the Government. An election has been ordered in Company H, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Lieutenant O. H. Elliott It will be held on Tuesday evening, February 26. Qualified marksmen of lastseason's shoot ing are patiently waiting the arrival of their new medals and bars. They should have been done long before this, as also the allowances for target practice. The Washington Infantry have made an ad dition to their by-laws, which requires that any applicant for membership in the organization must drill with the company for at least one month before he is regularly received. Captain N. B. Palmer, a member of Com pany G, Eighteenth, who was stricken with paralysis a short time ago, is rapidly recover ing. He Is over 70 years of age, and n ill be sent to bis home In the East as soon as possible. The Washington Infantry bad a ery large drill last meeting night, 48 men being in line. The boys are working hard to make a good showing at Washington. The ranks are now pretty tun, ana none Dut nrst-ciass men will be recruited. Major Joseph T. Bpeee, formerly of tho Eighteenth, has been devoting bis attention to musical matters lately, the result of which is a very pretty anthem entitled "The Prince of Peace," which was sung in Trinity Church last Sunday for the first time. The long-expected order for the election of Captain in Company A, of the Eisbteetfa, was received during the week, and will be held on the 25th. It did not come through the usual channel, but was in the shape of a telegram to Colonel Smith. The vacancy in this company has existed for almost three months, and no cause was assigned for the delay in sending down the order. Division Inspector of Rifle Practice Watees is making an effort to have steel tar gets Issued by the State to each regiment, for range practice. Colonel Watres, by the way, is one of the few men in the Guard entitled to wear a gold medal for ten years' qualification. Ho won his tenth bar last season at Mt Gretna, and immediately presented himself with the new medal for ten years' standing. The blankets for mounted officers in the Fourteenth and Eighteenth Regiments have arrived, and will be worn strapped on the rear of the saddles In the Washington parade. Tbey are of a steel grey color and fine quality, and will certainly add very much to the appear ance of the rider. The field and staff of the Eighteenth have also ordered very handsome sabers from the East and will carry them for the first time on this trip. The probability of tho Twin City Rifles, the local colored organization, being enlisted as a company into either the Fourteenth or Eigh teenth Regiments is too small to be seen under a microscope. Tho Twin City Rifles some time ago applied for admission into the National Guard, and should they be received it will be as an Independent company, similar to the Gray Invincibles, of Philadelphia, the only colored organization now in the guard of this State. Orders have been issned in the Eighteenth for an inspection of all the comnanles in heavy marching order, between the 18th and 25th of this month. The Inspections will be conducted by the company commanders under the super vision of Colonel Smith, and are for the pur pose of determining the condition of the com panies as to State property and numbers The regiment has been divided Into two battalions, of which Lieutenant Colonel Rutledgo will command five companies, aud Major Kay four companies. So mast requisitions 'from all parts of the State for uniform material have been received atHarrisburg that Captain Maloneyhas run out ot cloth. . It is quite evident that the Penn. sylvanla boys will present an elegant appear ance in Washington, as there are more new uniforms now being made up than there were before camp. Local comnany commanders in ordering caps would do well to get them from the State, as by so doing they save 50 per cent on the cost of buying them from outside parties . AN election was held last Friday night in Company F, of the Southside, which resulted in the unanimous choice of Charles May for First Lieutenant, and Chris J. Snyder for See on d Lieutenant Immediately after tho elec tion, Lieutenant May was surprised at being presented with an elejrant gold medal of appro- firiate design as a mark of esteem from the en ined men under him. Adjutant Charles Reese made the presentation speech in a few well-chosen wordsr It is remarkable the number of people who are in ignoranco o'f the correct appearance of tne American nag. .even many members of the Grand Ai my do not know what It looks like. A paper recently started in this city in the interests o f the Jr. O. U. A.

McQuls ton. of baegertown. last week, belnz the fourth of the kind in the State. The qualifications to become brevet second lieutenant are that the appliant be a graduate of a military college In the State of Pennsylvania, and must have served in the capacity of captain of infantry therein not less than six months The com mission must also be applied for within one year after graduation. Cntnrrh Cured. A clergyman, after years of suffering from that loathsome disease, catarrh, vainly trying every known remedy, at last found a recipe which completely cured and saved him from death. Any sufferer from this dreadful disease sending self-addressed stamped envelops to Prof. J. A. Lawrence, 88 Warren st, New York City, will receive the recipe free of charge. SECRET SOCIETIES.

After a Disappearance of Several Tears an Ole Ball Violin Is Fonnd. tSFEClAI. TILEORjLK TO THE DISFATCH.l New York, February 16. Quite a stir was created recently among violin con noisseurs by the discovery of an old George Gemunder violin, the whereabouts of which had been unknown or lost sight of for many years. The instrument was discovered among the effects of a professional musician of this city, who died several years ago, and whose widow has since carelully guarded the violin as her most precious possession. Need of money, however, at lat forced her to part with it, and it is now the property of Mr. Charles H. Lellman, Jr., of this city. This violin is undoubtedly one ofthe finest creations of that ereat master. Georse kGemunder, and dates from the year 1859, when he was at the height of his pow ers. The violin has quite an inter esting history. Beams from the old Dutch church on lower Broadway furnished the wood of which it was fash ioned. In passing it might be remarked that this church was the first to be erected by the Dutch on Manhattan Island; the wood of the violin is, there fore, nearly 200 years old. The violin wns presented by Mr. Gemunder to Mr. Eckbardt, a well-known musician and conductor of Columbus, O. It was while in the possession of Sir. Eckhardt that Ole Bull saw it. He liked it so well that he used it at several of his concerts. The violin remained in the possession of Eckhardt until 1878,when Wilhelmj, fascin ated by its wonderful beauty of tone, pre vailed upon the Colurobns impresario to exchange the same for his (Wilhelmj's) in struments. Later Wilhelmj sold the violin to an amateur, at a big price. At this point all traces of the violin were lost until last week, when, by an accident, it fell into Mr. Lellraann's hands. Distress After Eating Is one of the many disagreeable symptoms of dyspepsia. Headache, heartburn, sour stomach, faintness and capricious appetite are alsj caused by this very widespread and growing disease. Hood's Sarsaparilla tones the stomach, creates an appetite, promotes healthy digestion, relieves headache, and cures the most obstinate cr.ses of dyspepsia. Read the following: "I have been troubled with dyspepsia. I had but little appetite, and whatl did eat distressed me, or did me little good. In an hour after eat ing I would experience a faintness or tired, all gone feeling, as though I bad not eaten any thing. Hood's Sarsaparilla did me an immense amount of good. It gave me an appetite, and my food relished and satisfied the craving I had previously experienced. It relieved me of that faint tired all-gone feeling. I have felt so much better since I took Hood's Sarsaparilla that I am happy to recommend it" G. A. PAGE, Watertown, Mass. N. B. Be sure to get only Hood's Sarsaparilla Soldby all druggists.
