t'r- ??'" K.V- , m-- r- J 14."$ MTUKES LAID OUT. 8V Titusnlle Decides Oil Brokers Must Stick to the Old Plan. THE QUESTION FINALLY SETTLED. - s Kevievof the Keal Estate Situation from , the Standpoint of an Agent -i. 'lIBEETI STKELT DEAL CLOSED UP The Tote of Titusville yesterday settled in the' negative the question of dealing in oil iutures. After the close of business many brokers hung around the Exchange tele graph office to learn the result, and when it came there was both gratification and dis appointment expressed, according as the men receiving the news were friends or op ponents of the departure. As Titusville was all that was required-to defeat the rules, nobody waited to hear from Bradford, which was still wrangling over Enle 3, which pro vides for dealing in certificate oiL "We might as well shut up shop," re marked a friend of the change. "To-day's business don't look like it," re plied one of the other fellows. "If we al ways do as Veil we ought to be satisfied. I think that the market will improve now that this wet blanket has been removed. Its adop tion would have buried the market out of sight" Real estate is a trifle dull as compared with the early spring boom, but that it continues to be a lively element of business is shown by the reports of sales published daily in this depart ment of The Dispatch. In support of this 'statement an agent said yesterday: "J am almost as bnsy as at any other time this season. There is a steady, I may say crowing, demand for nearly every description of property. I am negotiating the sale of several business sites on the Southsidc. Unimproved lots in the sub urbs are in as great demand as ever and scarce ly a day passes without more or less sales. The number of bouses going up in and about the . city is highly gratifying to the friends of im provement. I wouldn't be at all surprised if tbo original estimate of 4,000 should be reached. Pittsburg is growing faster than at any other time in her history." "Is there any reason to apprehend a tumble in prices T" "No. I think that impossible under existing conditions. There has been no boom no flurry. Purchasers have proceeded cautiously. The enhancement in values has been the re sult of a legitimate demand, backed by abund ance of capital, for which no equally safe and profitable investment could be found. As most ot the purchases are paid for and'have been or will be built on and occupied by their owners, I can see no reason for a reaction. 1 think real estate has moved up to stay. The rapid growth of the city demands the constant enlargement of its boundaries and the erection of thousands of houses every year to accommodate the in creasing population. This alone is sufficient to keep prices at the top. I think property that is adapted to either residence or business purposes is worth all that is asked for it. I am not aware that any purchaser has lost money. On the contrary,! know of many who have made snug little fortunes. Hundreds of re sales have been made at a handsome profit. There is scarcely a piece of property in the city or suburbs that could be bought to-day for the price that was paid for it six months or a year ago. As an instance of this I may cite one case in my own experience. Three months ago lot in the upper part of Edgewood, owned by the National Bank of Commerce, was sold for 81,500. Last week the owner was offered 52,000 lor it." J ' ' r "Do you think prices have reached the top I" " 'For the present probably they have. I think so for several reasons. The demand is not quite so pressing as it was earlier in the season. This is always the case in summer. Hot weather seems to take the snap out of peo ple. Then, again, the unsettled condition of tswm trade, rendering the Income of thon- ijjss of wage-workers uncertain, will deter i of ware-workers uncertain, will litor tliem from investing until they can see their way clear to meet payments nromntlv. Sail. I look for a steady movement all summer, and for a revival, with possibly a higher level of values, next talk Everything is in good shape to justify this anticipation." Among the important deals in realty that were consummated yesterday was the sale by C H. Lore, for Andrew Jackman, of twoots Nos. 431 and 433 Liberty street, having a front age of 43 feet, to D. H. Voigt and T. E. Ash for S35,000 a trifle "over $900 a front foot, which is considered a very reasonable figure for that locality. There are two two-story buildings on the property which will be torn down to make room for a large business house. This and sev eral other recent transfers of property in that part of the city show that it has been aroused by the spirit of improvement, and is deter, mined to do its part in the work of making Pittsburg the model city of the country. MOVEMENTS IN STOCKS. The Market n Little More Active, but Prices Still Bearish. The stock market was moderately active yes terday in comparison with the previous day, the sales amounting to 661 shares, of which Pittsburg Traction, Pittsburg and Western Railroad and Philadelphia Gas contributed about five-sixths. Snitch and Signal was the only thing that showed a decided advance, selling at 24J against 24 on Monday. This was on the strength of increasing business of the company. None of the gassers developed any strength, and all of them except Philadel phia were neglected. The summer season bringing rednccd earnings is unfavorable to these stocks, and it is the opinion of many brokers that bed-rock quotations have not been reached. Electric was oifered down to 56 wiiuoui. ia&crb. j.b wouju ue too mucn to ex pect an improvement in it, either in demand or prices, until the pending suits are settled, after which it will get on its feet again Pittsburg Traction sold to the extent of 200 shares, which brought 5 The other tractions were neglected. With the rapid growth of the suburbs it is a little strange that these securi ties are not in better demand. Some attribute their condition to the manipulations of a bnll clique, who want them at lower prices and are raking in little jags here and there so as not to arouse suspicion. The movement in Pittsburg and Western was continued, but prices realized were not materially different from those of the previous day. This stock is being absorbed by a few knowing ones, who will be able to spring a surprise on the market one of these days. The rest of the list was featureless.

AM0KGTHE BANKERS. Checking and "Depositing Heavy nnd Dis counting Light Talk en Business. The Clearing House report yesterday was in dicative of a large movement in business cir cles for the eeason, the clearings amounting to 1 $209,399 40 and the balances to $462,285 S3. In explanation a financier said: , "That business, m a whole, J good cannot bo denied. Eyen the iron trade about which so much has been said and so many evil predic tions made, is in good shape. Nearly all the mills are running on orders. Thero is com plaint about low prlces.but with lower rates on ore and the settlement ot the wage question, I think this drawback will be removed, and our greatest industry soon be put on a better foot ing. We are doing so well in everything that lam surprised there are any growlers, we are many millions ahead of the corresponding time last year when we thought we did wonders. We are in the swim and should feel happy." Checking and depositing were the best fea tures of the market, both being large. The borrowing demand was light. The result of the day's operations was to leave more money in the banks than they had at the beginning of business.

The oil market yesterday was fair to mid dling in point of activity and strength, trading being of good proportions at all of the ex changes. The supply of certificates was suf ficient for all the wants of the day, and carry ing was flat. Titusville voted against trading in futures, thus killing the proposition. Brad ford was still wrangling over rule 3 at the close of this report. The market opened at Sl&c, where it held for some time, and then dropped to 81c, after which it slowly rallied during the day and sold up to 82c In the last hour It was hammered down to SlUc, from which it recovered in the last 20 minutes and sold up to the highest point previously reached and of the day, 82e- It then softened and closed at 82c 5ic above the opening, with odds in favor of a lower level to-day. There was notfiing important in the field news. A. B. McGrew 4 Co. quote puts, 81c; calls, S383Xc Fentnrca ot the Market. Corrected daily by John M.

SHAEP MOVEMENTS And Large Transactions In Wall Street Stocks Irregularly Changed, Bat Ad vanccs In the Blnjorlly-London frellsund Chicago Buys. NEW Yoek, May 2L The stock market was again active to-day, with the interest centered mainly in the grangers, "V illards and special ties, and, while the room was in favor of a re action, the buying was of snch nature as to prevent any marked decline in any stock, and to materially advance several of the prime favorites. The buying was still principally by the Chicago operators, bnt there were sharp movements and large transactions in the Coalers, VUlards and one or two others. The movement in the Northern Pacifies came to a halt to-day, and nothing new was heard in the stocks, but after the first hour the activity subsided and their prices aft erward slowly yielded, and both are fractional ly lower this evening. Chicago Gas next took up the leadership of the market, and on large purchases was ad vanced about IK per cent, but it could not hold the improvement in the face of sales to realize and hammering by the bears. The anthracite shares became prominent upon the announce ment that there would be a meeting to-morrow to talk over the situation with a probable ad vance in prices later on. Reading once more assumed its old position as leader of the mar ket in point of activity, and very large blocks of the stock were traded In. Jersey Central later felt the stimulns,and its final advance was nearly 2 percent The others, however, were not not so prominent, and their fluctuations of less importance. The buying of the Grangers by the western operators was the feature of the day, and the ctronirth nf Bnrllnrton was specially notable. the feeling among the insiders being very con fident, and on the announcement of the dec laration of the dividend of 1 per cent to-day it quickly recovered its early slight losses and rose 1 per cent further. Northwestern, Atchi son and Rock Island also displayed marked strength in view of the temper of the room, but St. Paul was sluggish and without feature. Oregon Transcontinental was lower this morning and rapidly fell off 3 per cent and the trading in the first few minutes was marked by some sales at seller 3 and some cash, but the re mainder of the day was bare of such trans actions and the stock remained dull and steady until the close. London was a seller to a lim ited amount and the early prices -from that center were lower than our last evening's fig ures, and first prices here this morning were .made f rom to X per cent lower in sympathy. The early trading was also marked by a weak tone, and fractional losses were sustained all over the list during the first hour, but after that time there was a decided change for the better in the temper of speculation, and Chicago Gas and the Grangers became the leading stocks. In the afternoon the Coalers Came to the front, but the highest prices were generally reached toward 1 r. Jf, when the bears succeeded in bringing about another re action. Th e last few minutes of business, how ever, was turned to account by purchasers, and the close was firm to strong. The unlisted de partment was barren of feature, except for the weakness in Cotton Oil at the opening, and only a portion of the loss was recovered. Bruns wick was steady at 22?f2 The final changes are irregular, but advances are in a majority. Jersey Central is up 1. Pullman V Chesa peake and Ohio first preteired, 1 per cent, and others fractions, while the only marked decline was in Oregon Transcontinental, which lost 2. Rab-oad bonds were quite active1 to-day, but the animation was like that In shares conpned 0?HE to a few leading issues, and out of the total day's business of $1,911,000 Fort Worth and Denver contributed $125,000, Beading first in comes $118,000 and the Duluth, South Shore and Atlantic 6s $107,000. The tone of the deal ings was at first rather heavy and declines fol lowed in all the prominent issues traded in, but later under the stimulus of 'renewed buying l the market improved and a general recovery took place, wnicn ieit prices nut sngnuj changed and important differences to-nigbt are few in number. The advances include Burling ton, Cedar Rapids and Northern 6s 6 to 91; Indiana, Bloomlngton and Western first pre ferred U 8, to 120, and Fori Wayne firsts ft to 150.

Chicago. a lower rango of prices was established for wheat to-day and the feel ing was weak most of the session. There was only a moderate trade and no new features were developed. Trading was mainly local, and the operations of a prominent floor trader on the selling side proved sufficient to create weakness. ' At the opening the market was a trifle firmer and sales were made c overdosing figures of yesterday, but rather free offerings caused a gradual shrinkage in values and prices de clined c then ruled steady, moderate buying at this reduction holding prices andhe market, closed about Hs lower than yesterday. The in fluences brought to bear on the market were generally of a character to create weakness. A steady feeling prevailed in corn and prices showed but little change from yesterday. Thero was a good local demand from the shorts who sold yesterday and this had a tendency to ab sorb offerings and steaoy the market. The market opened a shade above the closingprices of yesterday, fluctuated within He range and closed Vi&Aa higher than yesterday. In oats a fair business was transacted within a narrow range of prices. More business was done in pork, and the market was somewhat unsettled and prices irregular. Early sales were made at 6010c ad vance, bnt this appreciation was soon lost. Later the mark6t was stronger and prices rallied 20025c, but settled back again 2j5c, closing steady. There was more doing in lard and prices were irregular. The market opened weak atyester day's close, but prices were advanced 205c Later the market was not quite so firm and prices favored buyers near the close Considerable interest was manifested in the market for short ribs and trading was active. The market opened tame at yesterday's close, but the demand was fairly active and prices Tallied 25027KC. Toward the close the market was not quite so firm and prices declined about ZKcand closed steady. ine e leadlne rntnres rantrea as rollows: Wheat No. 2 June. 8OVfi8O07908Oc: July, 76777676Vc: August, 740740 73K073Kc; year. 73Ji737272Mc Coen No. 2 June, 33K33k33K33c; July. 34034c; August, 343l034K34Kc.

Another Patient "Whom the Physi cians Failed to Help Cured "by Dr. Smith, the Magnetic -Physician, at-502 Penn Avenue. Dr. Smith is performing some of the- mo' wonderful cures ever witnessed In Plttsbnrg. Scores and hundreds of Invalids who have hitherto been unable to find relief from their sufferings are being restored to health in larga numbers through Dr. Smith'sstrange magnetta power. It is exceedingly Interesting to seo and talk with the vast number of invalids But tering from all manner of complaints who aro brought to the doctor for his favorable or un favorable opinion of their diseases. It is also gratifying to observe the change that take -. place m many of these seemingly helpless cases. Scores of Invalids who are so weak and feeble that they have to be carried to the doctor ia chairs and on beds are restored to health in a short time. Some are cured by one, some by two magnetic treatments, while others require more. The following very interesting case were cured by our magnetic treatment: Mr. Geo. T. Hartrey. who resides at Spring. dale. Pa., has been a great sufferer from coih sttpation hemorrhoid ipiles) and from fistula for a number of years. Pile tumors as large a. a black walnut made their appearance several years ago. and were the cause of much suffer ing. These tumors were often prolapsed, ana would bleed so profusely as to cause extreme prostration. As the disease advanced four fls tulas made their appearance, and were so pain f ul that he was obliged to give up his business and was unable to perform any manual labor. Mr. Hartrey had tried the skill of a number of physicians but bad been unable to find relief until he applied to Dr. Smith, the magnetio physician, at No. 602 Penn avenue, who cured bun permanently without the nse of the knife or ligature. Dr. Smith agreed to cure him for a certain sum of money, which Mr. H. paid, him at the beginning of the treatment. Mr. Hartrey was permanently cored in a short time and may be referred to. Mr. Peet, owner and manager of Imperial Hall was a great sufferer from vericocele for many years. He applied to Dr. Smith and was permanently cured. He may be referred to. Mr. John Foley, who resides at MUIvale, was taken with a terrible pain in his right shoulder upward of five months ago. The attack came on suddenly, like a shock of paralysis. The arm became useless in a few moments' time. He could not nse the hand nor move a finger. A short time after the attack he began to ex perience pain in the shoulder. The pain in creased in severity for a number of days, when it was discovered that there was an accumula tion of pus in the shoulder joint. Mr. Foley applied to a doctor, who opened the shoulder with the knife. Large quantities of pus was discharged at the time and a fistula formed, which continued to discharge a thin acrid pus.' In this helpless and hopeless condition he ap- nueu to iir. omito, me magnetic pnysician, at 502 Penn avenue, and was enred per f ectljC He has regained the use of his arm. J. C. Henderson haa been tortured with piles for ten years. He was cured by Dr. Smith la one week. Dr. Smith cures all forms of female com plaints without the use of Instruments or ex posure of the person. He also cures piles and rupture without the use of the knife, or pain to the patient, nor detention from business. He treats and cures cancers in less time and with less pain than by any other known method. . ' Dr. Smith is permanently located at 02 Penn avecne, where everybody can go from 9 a. it. till 7 p. 31. The doctor consults free and cures after all other means fail. He treats every form of disease known to bnmanitv. Go to 02 Penn avenue and consult him if yon wish to get well.
