l- TuJ. jj. LOOAL LIVE STOCK. Leading features of Markets at Lib- . erty for the Week. 1 FLIGHT CATTLE EUN-LAED MARKET 1 IHeayy Supply of Sheep and Lambs, Tear s' TT lings Scarce and Firm. HOGS EEEP DKIFTIXG DOWNWARD ik office of Pittsbukg Dispatch, T L, Wednesday, May 29 1888. f - Receipts of cattle on Monday were 67 cars against 72 the previous Monday. Some E or 6 loads hare been received since the beginning of the week, making a total of 73 cars, which is 8 cars below the snpplyjof last week. Quality was scarcely no to the average. There were 52 loads from Chicaco, and a few of these were prime stock, bat the bulk was below standard grade. There were fever heavy weights than last week. Drovers have evidently caught on to the fact that this bas become a very poor market for heavy cattle. There ha been little demand for export cattle at Liberty yards for some weeks past. Bayers from Eastern Pennsylvania were .scarce this week. The demand was mostly local. The best demand was for smooth, llcht batcher stock weighing 1.000 to 1,200 pounds. A few loads of good beeves, weighing from 1.S0O to 1,400 pounds, were sold at $1 351 4a One bunch of still heavier Bold at 4 SO. Calves were firm and higher, with Si 85g5 00 as the range. Some extra fine brought J5 23. Notwithstanding reduced supplies of cattle, markets were slow on most grades. Desirable batcher stock held its own, and was probably a shade firmer than last week. About everything on hand was cleared up to-day. With receipts equal to last week, prices would have been loner. As it was. the light run was the saving clause of markets. Prices of cattle have been higher in Chicago this week, but no better here. A Heir's Island drover said to-day: "I paid more for my stock at Chicago this week than last, bat could not persuade buyers here to give any more, and as margins have for a long time been very close, there is no protit in my busi ness this week." Sheep and Lamb. Becelpts on Monday were S2 loads. Since then abont 16 loads have been added to supplies. There were 14 loads on the market to day. Said a leading stockman: "I sold a load yes terday at 4c A deck of very fine wethers brought 4Vc Good vearllngs were rather scarce, and brought 55a Spring lambs brought 6c Choice grades of sheep and lambs maintained the prices of last week, notwith standing the heavy ran. As compared with prices of the early part of the week, prices are are 20c to 25c higher now than then. Hoc. Supply was liberal on Monday, being SI loads, an excess of 7 loads over the previous Monday. About 20 loads have been received since. Markets at the beginning of tbe week were fair, but advices from the East and West proved a dampener to tbe trade about noon Monday. Since then prices have been drifting downward, and to-day are 15c below Monday's rates. The outside price of tops this morning was Hear At Chicago it was $1 50. Die Call & Co.' Review.

Fin est qualities sold extremely well, and the gen eral average on thls.and the sale as a whole, was sot materially different from tbe first day, when an advance of from 3 to 5 cents per over last year's prices was fixed, which stamps the salo as a success.

Wheat Open Firm but Close Weak and Lower Contradictory Weather Re port Corn and Oat Without Material Chance Hoc Product Steady. Chicago After a firm opentng and slight advance the wheat market rnled easier to-day, prices declining jjje, and closed Giio 'ower than yesterday. A fair business was trans acted, but trading was spasmodic. The firm opening and Jfc advance was attributed to cold wet weather and better tone of Liverpool ad vices. Closing cables were all strong, but later the predictions were for warmer weather in the Northwest, and this started parties who had bought on cold weather to selling. To-morrow being a holiday, also brought out small lots of long wheat, parties not caring to hold till Friday. Some little export business was re ported at the seaboard, and there was also some business doing in cash wheat there. A quiet, easy feeling prevailed in corn. Transactions were only of moderate volume and fluctuations limited to Uc range. Nothing new of consequence was developed that had any apparent effect on values, and the market was governed entirely by local influences. Oats were traded in liberally, and early a stronger feeling prevailed. Opening sales were at Hejic advance. The marketheld steady for a time, in sympathv with tbe strength in corn, but after the few buyers had been filled up, of ferings increased. A weaker feeling developed and prices receded JfSXe, the close being quiet at abont inside prices. In mess pork buying was rather HghCand tbe market rather firm. Prices ruled 7K10c high er, and the market closed quiet at medium fig ures. A quiet and steady feeling prevailed in the lard market. Prices were a little more favor able to sellers, but the Change was slight. Only a moderate trade was reported in the market for short ribs. Prices declined 25c early, but rallied again, and the market closed steady at outside figures. The leading futures rancrea as rollows: Wheat No. 2 June. 7BUe79Ue7Sa78c: JuIt.

The Police Have no Authority to Prohibit Such Demonstration. Chicago, May 29. A number of de cisions were handed down in the Appellate Court to-day. A question of political, re ligious and social liberty is discussed by Justice Moran in a decision wherein he holds that the city of Chicago has no right to repress orderly parades in the street. John Trotter, a Salvation Army Captain, was arrested and fined in the Criminal Court for parading on the streets, the prosecution being under an ordinance prohibiting parades, except on ?ermit of the Superintendent of Police, rotter appealed from the fine, and Justice Moran makes the important ruling that a permit from the police chief is not neces sary where people parade in a quiet and orderly manner. ' Justice Gary, doubtless having in mind the Anarchist riots, dissents, and holds that it comes properly within police powers to prohibit parades. The suit of Edward A. Stevens to restrain the Board of County Commissioners from making, a contract with St, Mary's Training School for Boys, on the ground that it is a sectarian institution and the payment of money to such institutions is contrary to the Constitution, was dismissed the Appellate Court holding that ir had no jurisdiction. Such cases, involving the construction of a section of the Constitution, are. it bolds,appealable only to the Supreme Court. COUNTERFEITERS CAPTURED. na.. nr.l,. . T.n l ci ., . VM.WW MM...V .. .J UH.MUIHI AUIU liDOO nn Illinois Gang-. Chicago, May 29. a posse consisting of two Sheriffs, deputy marshal and eight citizens made a raid on a gang of counter. feiters who have been operatinc in the neighborhood of Versailles. I1L Four men were captured, and besides counterfeiting tools and coins a large quantity- of illicit whisky was found. Captain Porfer, ot the Secret Service, to-day took the four men to Springfield, where he had them bonoU over in $1,000 bond each lor counterfeiting. Fields, one of the counterfeiters, turned State's evidence, and the capture bids fair la&SiyS THE PLACES WR HOMES. Several of the Outlying Districts Re ceiving Marked, Attention. OAKLAND AND SQUIRREL HILL Occupy Yery CoramandlDg Positions, With Rapid Transit Assured. TEHPERAMCETILLB AKD THE MOUKI The sale of 26 lots on Mount "Washington in one day shows conclusively that there is an unusual movement in that direction. It is a beautiful place, with good air and water; It possesses all the requisites for com fortable living, has commanding views of the city and a large area of the adjacent country, and Is convenient of access at all times of the day or night. It is destined to be come one of the most populous districts on the Southside. Several ot the outlying districts which have been mentioned in The Dispatch within a weekortwoare continuing to attract the at tention of real estate buyers. Among them are Oakland and Squirrel HUL The comple tion of tbe loop ot the Fifth avenue cable cars is all that is needed to place the former in the front rank for residence purposes. It possesses everything else to make it desirable. Squirrel HU1 will soon have two electric roads, which will place it in close communication wi th tbe heart of the city. Naturally it is one of the most picturesque spots in the county. Both of, these districts are already prime favorites in the real estate market, bat rapid transit, now an assured thing, will give them a boost that will place them in a still more commanding po sition. The old rumor of the proposed sale of the postofflce property was revived yesterday, It may be well to repeat that this property can not be sold without an act of Congress, which may not be obtained for years. Indeed, from the dilatory vay in which the new building is going up, the old one will be needed for the purpose for which It Is now used for a long time to come. When sold, if ever, it will be adver tised, So that ail will have an equal chance to buy it. No one will have theinside track in the deal. Business is business. The proprietor of a grocery house in the East End, wno formerly did business in Butler, told this story yester day: ."When in Sutler I did a large produce trade with the farmers. One-day one of them, whom I knew very well, came in with a large roll of fine-looking butter, weighing some eigbt or ten pounds. I took it and paid him for It. The price was SO cents a pound. When I went to cut it the knife .encountered a hard sub stance which could not be penetrated. 1 tore open the lump and found embedded in it a beef bone that weighed a pound and a half. I was surprised, but said nothing. When the farmer came again I said to him: 'Mr. , you owe me 45 cents on that butter.' His guilty look showed that he knew what I meant. He band ed me over the change and walked oat I have not seen him since." The finding water at West End place seems to have been all that was needed to give a god send off. It removed the only objection that had been urged against the locality. Four lots were sold there yesterday and several others bargained for. TemperancevUle may now Da said to be In the swim. . "Selling real estate at auction Is- the best plan I have ever tried," remarked a real estate agent yesterday. "In the ordinary way buyers are very slow to act They seem to thmk that by waiting they can get better terms, but when they meet face to face at an auction they know they must art promptly or the other fellows will get ahead of them. Auction sales also excite competition, and in most cases better prices are realized. "We sell both privately and by auction, bat I prefer the latter method. There is fun as well as profit in it" HOW THEI STAND. Strong and Weak Features of.the Local Stock Olarkct. "We are not quite ready to come together," remarked a stock broker yesterday evening after the call. This was a sufficient explana tion of the dullness of the market There are plenty of orders, but tbey are not urgent and both sides hope Dy holding off a little longer to do better for their principals. There were some outside sales, among them 500 shares of Pittsburg and Manchester BaUway, sold by Henry M. Long for 1200, Last November this stock went at S104. This almost phenomenal advance in so short a time is due entirely to the improved condition of the road assuring good dividends. There was only one sale at the morning call, that of 100 shares of Chartiers Gas at 50, the same price that it brought the day before. The afternoon sales amounted to 125 shares, mak ing a total of 225 for tbe day. Philadelphia Gas was wanted at 8 but held higher. As there was no pressure to sell it nothing was done. A holder of the stock said; "I am not going to give it away. It hasn't seen its best days yet" rue rest ot the gassers maintained an easy and quiet attitude. Central Traction was stronger, selling at S2K to 32. assessment paid. The others were fractionally weaker. Electric was still under a legal disability, 54 being bid and 65 asked in tbe afternoon. It was offered very sparingly. It is pretty safe to say that this stock will keen. Snitch and Signal was weaker and neglected. La Nona showed no change. News from the mine was said to be unfavorable. Silverton wasn't wanted at any price, bnt $1 was asked for it The rest of the list was too dull to merit notice. Bids, offers and sales follow: Pitt, ret. 8. &M. Ex.

A BANKER TALES. Idle Fnnds Not So Abundant as Some People Think. There was a fair demand for money at the leading banks yesterday. Tbe cashier of one of them said: "We are doing a very satisfactory business for the season.. The loan market is decidedly more active than at the same time last year. We are pretty well loaned up, but Borne of our neighbors liavo not been so fortu nate. There is an abundance of money for all legitimate purposes, but it is not in excessive supply."

There was considerable strength in the oil market when it opened yesterday, but the bulls soon lost their grip and a downward movement set in, which continued, with slight interrup tions, till the close. Oil City was a buyer and New York a seller. Here the trading was mod erate and entirely professional, outsiders care folly keeping their fingers out of the pie. There were no new features. Tbe market opened at 84c, but it soon sold off to 83K& From this point it rallied a little, and held aronnd 83c until tbe afternoon, when it firmed np and sold at 84c,but failed to develop staying qualities and declined to S3K& In the last few mlnntes It was bid op to 83mc, at which it closed, with both sides carefully guarding their points. A broker said: "If the powers that be were willing we would soon be in shape for another advance. On the other hand, there is appar ently no combination of dealers to aid in patting prices up. This has always aided in our advances, and its apparent absence is significant ot a weak spot somewhere. So long as tbe trading is professional, as now, there can be no material change."

Reported Rale Catting and News of Frost and Damage to the Crop Utilized by the Bears Everything Closes Lower. New Yobk, May 29. The heavy advance In tbe stock markctmet with a check to-day, and while the business done was materially smaller than that of the past few days, the list at the close was Invariably lower and the losses in some of the late favorites were quite marked. The recent rumors that Mr. Armonrhad closed out his deal in St Paul and the heavy realiza tions during the past few days were supplemented by a change in the tenor of tbe dispatches from Chicago, and rate cutting was once more the burden of the news with frost and damage to the crops to fill out with. In addition to these influences, to-morrow being a holiday, there was plenty of closing out of outstanding accounts, and many brokers intending to leave the city" until Monday, tbe sales for the long acconnt aggregated a respectable amount There were selling orders for other outside centers, however, and London contributed to tbe depression, though Boston was still bullish and bought some ot its favor ites. Tbe Chicago specialties, however, were the leaders in the decline and furnish almost all the important losses sustained lor tbe day, while the Vanderbilts were the firmest group, and a spurt in Western Union during the morn ing hours enabled that stock to score the only advance among the active shares. The failure ot the directors of the Cotton Oil Trust to come to any conclusion in the matter of a dividend depressed that stock to-day, and the other trust shares were weak in sympathy. A few of the lighter shares were especially strong, and Chicago and Atlantic and East Tennessee were verv noticeable. Tbe movements in the ma jority of tbe general list however, were con fined to the smallest limits and the fluctuations seemed possessed of little or no significance, but the general weak tone of the market car ried them down. The market opened with a much smaller vol ume of business, and the first sales were made at small declines from the closing figures of last evening, and Cotton Oil dropped 1 per -cent followed by the stocks in the regular list with fractional amounts. Western Union showed marked strength toward noon, but it had no stimulating effect upon the rest and Canada Southern followed with the same re sult Tbe market became more quiet in the afternoon, but toward 2 P. M. tbe downward movement gathered more force and the lowest ? rices weregenerally reached about that time, here was a slight rally in the last hour, and tbe market finally closed heavy to weak at about the lowest prices of tbe day. In the un listed department tbe Trust stocks were still leaders, although somewhat less active than usual of late, and among the second division Brunswick was a leader as usual, and closed rather higher after selling at 24.

WOOD?, Specialist In the Care of Baptsr r4r Chronic Dlieoies Office at Hotel Alh marie, Penn Avenue and Sixth Street, Plltsbnrr, Pa. Dr. Woods has bad a large practice la' this branch of his profession without any Sublic advertising, but as many who might ave been useful and ornate members of society, fill untimely graves, whom he might have cured by seasonable treatment and given them "length of davs," he has Ion; felt it a duty he owes to the afflicted to step ' aside from the restrictions of so-called med ical etiquette and announce- to the public that he gives special attention to a much ' neglected class of diseases. Many years ago Dr. "Woods went through, the prescribed course of medical studr with hisr fellow students, received his ' diploma and took an equal stand in the profession with the best of his medical brethren; yet he is fully convinced from lengthened observation, that being a grad- nate merely gives one no assurance or guarantee of a physician's skill. TTi sub sequent success in practice is the proper gauge by which to judge of his merits. Oa this severe and critical test Dr. "Woods haa -stood and the elevated position he occupies -" in the medical profession makes it clear that " his success has been unusual. Profession- ally Dr. "Woods relies on his own powers and resources, snd has achieved a remarkable degree of perfection in diagnosis, which: en ables him, at a glance, to' comprehend the " complications of obscure, new and anoma lous types of disease. He has given years t of devoted study to his practice and enected' such marvelous cures that the greatest as tonishment has been caused throughout tho country. His services, therefore, are not to be measured by money; and those who are afflicted are'false to themselves not to avail themselves to the full of his wonderfully successful modern method of treatment; Dr. "Woods' treatment being mild and safe, his patients arfe in no case subjected to painful or unpleasant operations, and in the majority of instances they ca pursue the course of treatment directed at their homes and without interruption to their usual voca tions. "When possible the doctor prefers to see his patients; but when this is impossible' his successful system of treatment by corre-' spondence enables the afflicted in all parts of the world to avail themselves of the bene fit of his skill at a very small cost Send 4 cents in stamps for question list.
