AfBfHortgage,PlaceI on Penn Ave-
ryfaue by a Local Capitalist,-;
VjA'Local TraTelin? Man Eelnrns From the
5. - , West and Tells a Rosj Story.
Samnel "W. Black & Co., whose extensive
knowledge of the location and value of
Pittsburg property is well known, have
placed a mortgage for 515,000, one" year, at
6 per cent, on a Penn avenue property, the
assessed value of which is 525,000. The
mortgage, therefore, represents about 80 per
cent of the present price of the security.
This shows that capitalists must have great
faith in the enhancement of values on that
thoroughfare, which is again attracting
attention after a season of lethargy
caused by inflation. The lender is one of the
most prominent capitalists In tho city, who al
ways looks before he jumps. His faith in the
stability of real estate should have great
weight with prospective Investors, and go far
to maintain confidence in the liveliest branch
of local business.
W".A.Herron&Sons"bronght a large trans--action
to a head yesterday, it being the sale of
a residence on Ridge avenue. Allegheny, for
40,000. The purchaser has no fears of an in
vasion of street cars, the determined opposition
of interested citizens having given tho scheme
such a black eye as will compel it to remain in
retirement for an indefinite period.
In an interview yesterday with a Pittsburg
traveling man, who had just returned from an
extended journey in the West and Northwest,
some interesting facts relating to business were
obtained. He said in substance: "l nave seen
hustling and hustlers here, but nothing like
what I witnessed during my absence. Every
body seemed to be on the jumo; they had no
time for anything but work. They were up
early and late, and busy all the time. Towns
are springing up all over the West as if by
magic. Some of the cities are growing at a
wonderful rate. Among these are Kansas
City, Minneapolis. St. Paul, Milwaukee. Sioux
City, Davenport and Leavenworth. Each of
these has many fine and costly buildings, fine
streets, traction or horse cars, gas, electrlcitr
and everything else necessary for comfort and
The country is well Improved and is settling
cp very fast. Farm buildings are comrortahle,
and live stock is well housed. Farms are well
cultivated, and the crops are in splendid con
dition. Should no disaster overtake them be
tween now and harvest the yield will be im
mense. Should this promise be fulfilled, busi
ness next fall will fairly boom. Farmers will
have money with which to build and buy agri
cultural implements, the railroads will earn
money enough to build additional tracks and
make necessary repairs to the old ones, and
merchants will be able to expand their business.
All this means money for the East. I never saw
a brighter prospect for an era of good times."'
The readiness of young Americans to leave
the homes of their parents and "go AVest and
grow up with the country," is a trait of char
acter in curious contrast with the predominat
ing idea of their English ancestors. Since
William the Conqueror partitioned the lands
of England among his followers the idea ot
holding them In possession of the family has
crystallized into some very oppressive and nn
just laws, and has been the cause of much evil
and dissensions. It had some good effects,
however. It made that tight, little island rich,
prosperous, and powerful and Its people the
greatest and most successful colonizers the
"world ever saw. The improvements they made
on thetr landed estates Were of the most per
manent character, and many houses are still
"anding in England, in good repair, that were
mlt many centuries ago.
The descendants of the English speaking
peoplein America held a totally different idea
ci the subject. They would part with their
landed nossessioni for a very slight inducement
and without regret. The consequence is that
the dwellings and other Improvements have
been of a temporary character. Land was so
cheap and plentiful that only slight efforts
Vere required to secure a home and improve it
in a temporary manner so as to provide for the
Crowing family.
There is a rapid change taking place in the
Minds of the present generation. Since the
public lands have nearly ail gone into private
ownership there is a greater desire than ever
before known to own a home. The mad rush
to the little remaining Government lands In
the 'West is an evidence of this fact, and is one
of the most hopeful and pleasing indications of
the permanency and prosperity of our Govern
ment. Our population lias increased by nat
ural causes and by immigration, aided by a
congenial climate, soil and conditions favor
able to a rapid development of the highest
civilization to such an extent that we now fill
the whole of our vast landed possessions with
a free, hardy and liberty-lovinc people, who,
' for the most part, own their homes.
The coming century will witness a grand
revolution in the construction of dwellings and
other improvements. The old, cheap style will
be superseded by more durable and costly
structures, around which the family offshoots
will stick instead ot wandering to distant re
gions far from kith and kin. The full benefit
of home life can be realized only when it is
permanent. The American will ultimately
Kettle down like his English cousin. This
change has already made considerable progress
in Pittsburg.
Stocki in the Dump-. V.'iihXo Prospects of
Sspcctly improvement
The stock market J cerday was, in the main,
a repetition of that of the previous days of
the week. A bearish feeling predominated,
and almost the entire list was weaker. This
was accounted for by the absence of orders and
the excitement consequent npon the Johns
town disaster. A broker said : "I do not look
for much of a change before fall. The dull
season for stocks is upon us, and Investors will
probably hold aloof nntil the autumn revival of
business. The cutting off of New York quota
tions from the tickers affects trading in local
stocks more or less. All these things taken to
gether makes the prospect of a speedy im
provement far from rosy.
Trading in the forenoon was confined to the
sale ot 100 shares of Philadelphia Gas atS
a decline of 50 cents a share from Tuesday's
figure. The prediction of a 3 per cent dhidend
in J uly seems to be taken with many grains of
allowance. For Wheeling Gas 31 was bid.
Chartiers was wanted at i but it was held at
8L The other gassers were too much in the
soup to be mentioned. Electric was neglected,
there belne no bids for it. Holders of this
stock are not anxious to force it to sale at pres
ent figures. Tne tractions were fractionally
weaker. Pittsburg. Allegheny and Manchester
Passenger Railway could have been sold at 223.
There were two transactions in tbealtemonb,
100 shares of Philadelphia Gas selling at 3
and 20 shares of Pittsburg and Western pre
ferred at 22 the former being a decline and
the latter an advance, both fractional. Electric
was extricated from the debris, and received a
bid of &3J but was held a point higher. Switch
and Signal was not wanted, bnt it was offered
at 21H. Mining shares were flat, and the trac
tions bung around the forenoon figures. Rids,

Business Rather Slow Indications 'of Lively
Time Next Fall.
? All the bankers visited yesterday reported
business very slow. The Eastern mails were
light. People were too much engrossed with
the Johnstown disaster to give much attention
to the ordinary concerns of life. The condi
tions were said to be favorable for active trad
lug as soon as the community settles down to
ordinary duties.
Reports f 10m all parts of the country encour
age the belief that business win be very brisk
in the fall. All the crops are In good condition
and promise a larfce yield. The hay crop is said
to be heavier than for some years. It will re
quire a large amount of money to move these
to the centers of distribution. The exchanges
were 51,672,316 9S and the balances S31G.093 7L

Tho Blnrket Shows an Absence of Back
bone Broker Indifferent.
A bearish feeling predominated at the open
ing of the oil market yesterday. Brokers had
not recovered from the shock caused by the
flood and were in a bad condition for trading.
The irregularity of New York quotations was
another wet blanket. Business was light all
along the line Oil was a trifle scarce, from 15
to 25 cents being paid. The outside interest
was still conspicuous for Its absence. Clear
ing were 212,000 barrels. .
The market opened rather shaky at 82c. A
few sales lent it some strength, and it moved
up to 83Vc. the highest point reached during
the day. It then slumped off to S2Jc, recovered
and advanced 2JJc, weakebedatnne and closed
at2?a One ot the most experienced brokers
on the floor predicted a lower market to-day.

A Good Market From Beelonlng to End
Granecrsaiid Trnst Shares Lead
In Activity Everyllilnc Closes
at Top Prices.
New Yoek, June 5. The stock market to
day was somewhat more active than yesterday
but the dealings were principally In tho
Grangers in the Tegular list while the trading
in the trust shares in the unpledged depart
ment assumed very large proportions. The
market was strong from beginning to end, and
the losses of the last few days were entirely re1
covered and in many cases with something in
addition. The improvement In the tone of the
dispatches from Chicaco, together with the
active support given the favorite stocks of that
Center, was the prime moving cause of the
more bullish feeling shown and the advocates
of higner prices came into the market with
more confidence than has been seen for many
days. In making this result the recent re
ports of the handsome gains in earnings of the
roads in the West was not without its influ
ence but the advices In regard to the probable
settlement of the difficulties in the West in a
short time were most powerful.
The feature of the day, however, was the un
nsuallv heavy trading In the trut stocks, and
tho old trusts were specially active, the Chi
cago contingent buying largely on reports that
a large Cincinnati concern had joined the trust.
Chicago Gas and Cotton are moved np in sym
pathy though there were rumors that the
Cotton Oil people would declare dividends in
the future. Tbe close was fairly active and
Btrong at the highest prices of the day.
Railroad bonds also responded to the more
buoyant feeling, and the market to-day was
more active and the fluctuations wider,
although there was not the strength that marked
the dealimr In stocks. Several declines were
recorded, although the tone of the dealings was
generally strong -throughout the day. The
sales ot all issues aggregated $1,602,000.
of which Erie and Western contributed .117,000
and the West Shore fours, registered. $105,000.

Interest nt Generally
Klcdinm Figures.
Chicago A stronger feeling was developed
in wheat to-day and the market exhibited more
life. Influences, on the whole, were nfore fa
vorable to the Interest of holders, and induced
long buying and covering of shorts. The open
ing was about the same as yesterday's closing,
and, with only slicht fluctuations, prices were
advanced lc, ruled slightly easier and closed
IKc higher than yesterday. The change in the
market was attributed to better export buying,
firmer foreign markets and rumors of less fa
vorable European crop prospects.
A fair speculative trade was reported In corn
early In the day. most of the business occurring
within the first hour, after which the pit be
came quite lifeless. The prevailing feeling
was firm, but fluctuations did not vary materi
ally from yesterday, being confined Vithin H
c range.
Oats were qnfet and steady and without new
features of importance, price changes being
small. i
A little more interest was manifested In mess
pork. Prices were advanced 7K10c early, but
increase of sales caused a decline. Pricesclosed
Very little business was transacted In lard.
Early prices were advanced 25c, but settled
back again to medium figures" and closed
quiet. . ,
Rather a brisk business was transacted in
shortrib sides early in the day. Opening sales
were made at 25c advance, and a further
improvement of 710c was gained. About
the middle of the session prices receded 2
5c, but tbe market closed firm.

Batter and Egs Are Active and

Cereals Still Blnggisb, and Situation in
Buyers' Favor.
Wednesday, June 6, 1889. J
Country Produce Jobbing Prices.
Butter and eggs are good goods. Eggs have
advanced lc since Monday, and stock moves
out freely at the advance. The butter drift Is
also upward. A leading jobber of butter,
cheese and eggs reports active demand for all
his stock which is unusually well cleaned np.
Supplies of fruits and vegetables are light,
owing to railroad blockades. Maryland straw
berries have been blockaded in large quantity.
Potatoes, both old and new, are good stock.
The delay of trains has led to a scarcity of
tropical fruits. A B. & O. train laden with
fruits and vegetables is due, and there will be
enough to-morrow to meet all demands.

He Wants to Rednce Sunday Work In tbe
Postnl Department.
Washington, June 5. Postmaster General
Wanamaker has sent the following circular
letter to the postmasters of 100 of tbe largest
postofBces throughout the country:
With the view of ascertaining the relative
importance of the receipt and dispatch of mails
at postnfflces and the delivery therefrom to
the public on Sunday, as compared with tho
same on other days of the week, and in order
to reduce the work on that dy, if it shall be
found to be practicable and proper, I will
thank you to carefully collect information' on
the following points as to applied to Sundays
in tho coming month of June and make report
thereon in detail to me. to wit:
First The amount of postage stamps, postal
cards, newspaper wrappers, etc, sold at your
office on each Sunday in June.
Second The numbers of callers at your posti
office in each Sunday in June. . '
Third The number of mails dispatched. and
received on each Sunday in. June anu the
approximate extent of such mails. ,'
Fourth The number of letter carrier collec
tions, tbe approximate extent of the mail mat
ter collected and the hours awhich the sev
eral collections were made.
Fifth The number of employes on duty each
Sunday and the hours of service of each.
I shall also esteem.it a. favor if you will sub
mit to me. With these, replies, any suggestions
which may occur to j'ou after careful thought
as to the means and the mode of reducing Sun
day work in postofflces.
The information received by this letter will
be laid before the Postmaster General for bis
consideration. Any action that may be deemed
advisable will be announced in order. Mr.
Wanamaker is not certain that any modifica
tion should be made in tho'present system.
Il Will be a Week Before It Is Open For
Philadelphia, June 5. Although the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company had hoped to
get the temporary route between Harrisburg
and Altoona In running order by this afternoon,
the bridge at Montgomery, which is needed to
complete the route, is far from finished. Tbe
water Is still very high at that point, and work
has, there tore, been necessarily slow, but as
the gangs of men under the charge of Vice
President Thomson arc now in a position to
work more rapidly, it Is thought the bridge
will be fixed up sufficiently to permit of tne
running of trains over it by to-morrow after
noon. West of Altoona tbe progress on the re
pairs to tho line are also reported to be pro
gressing more slowly than had been pxpectcd.
Conservative estimates are to the effect that
five dars will yet be required to make the route
from Altoona to Pittsburg good. The slow
r gress is due In great part to tbe rain which
las fallen almost constantly since Sunday, but
which has now ceased. The supplies for the
destitute people at Williamsport will reach
there to-day. Tho mails delayed at Altoona,
which were started from Ebcnsburgby wagon
yesterday, reached BlalrsviHe at 3 o'clock this
morning, and were sent by rail to Pittsburg, ar
riving at the latter place at 7 A. m.
The Famous Mary Frazier Destroyed While
Adrift at Sea.
Boston, June 6. News has just reached
this port that the whaling bark Mary Frazier,
of Edgartown, which acquirecVnational reputa
tion on account of its seizure by thePortuguese
Government, wasburned at sea on the morning
of May 28, In order to remove her from tbe
track of other vessels. The bark was drifting in
mid-ocean, having drifted from its anchorage
at Fayal.
It is probable that the crew abandoned the
bark, for everything of value had been re
moved. Tbe derelict was discovered by Captain
Evans, of the British steamer Peconic, and it
was be who gave orders to burn the vessel,
knowing that the hnlk would be a dangerous
obstruction to naviiration.
Arrive From Altoonn, bnt tbe Service Is
Still in a Crippled Slate.
Superintendent of Mails Collins stated yes
terday that the letter mall thatchad been de
tained by the flood at Altoona had been re
ceived. It was started from Altoona early
Tuesday morning ir train to Ebensbnrg, from
whence it was hauled by wagon to Nineveh,
and got hero at noon yesterday. Tbe paper
mail did not come, but will in a day or two.
Mail Is now being received from and sent to all
points, except the territory between South
Fork and Huntingdon, and between Tyrone
and Lock Haven. When mall communication
will be secured in those districts it is impossi
ble to telh
Mail to Johnstown Is sent ont promptly over
the Baltimore and Ohio road, and distributed
from the temporary postofflce there.
Her Fnlber Recovering Nicely.
Mrs. Gardner, of Scotland, a daughter of Mr.
William Simple, of Allegheny, arrived at her
old home yesterday morning on a visit to her
father, who is recovering nicely from the ill
ness, or rather indisposition, that has for some
time kept him more or less confined. Mrs,
Gardner was detained en route In New York,
by reason or the crippled condition of tbe rail
roads, and had tocomo to this city via Wash
ington. She was accompanied from New York
by her brother. ,

Leading Features of Trado at the
East Liberty Yards.
Cattle Beceipts LightPrices Steady
Slieep and Hogs
Ojtice op-PiTTSBtmo DisPATcrr, I
Wednesday. June 5. 1880.
It seems impossible to find any depart
ment of trade which is not more or less af
fected by the Conemaugh disaster. East
Liberty stockmen have had many of their
calculations npset by the great calamity.
On Monday, in the early part of the day,
markets were thoroughly demoralized. The
fact that through cattle could not bo shipped
eastward by tne Pennsylvania Kailroad was
worked up by buyers for all that was in It It
was thought for a few hours Monday morning
that the through cattle would be thrown on to
our local market, and the result was that the
bottomdropped out of trade for a time. Bujers
thoneht they could dictate terms.
About noon Monday, however, word
reached the yards that a new
route had been opened via Erie and Buffalo,
and at onco there was a favorable change in
markets, and holders became firmer In i their
views. Local f eceiots consisted of CO carloads.
This being below the average, demand was
sufficient to hold prices np to those of last
week. . . ,, .
Said a leading stockman: "Our local trade
demands abont the number we received this
week, and there is no trouble handling that
number of cattle. The capacity of our home
market is about 60 caraaweek and when this
amount of stock is sent us of of the kind suit
able to our trade we can easily handle it. Our
markets no longer call for heavy cattle." Nice
tidy beeves weighing from 1,000 to 1,200 pounds
are the kind mostly wanted by our local trade.
There Is no margin left in the line of heavy ex
port cattle, and shippers of this class of stock
would do well to give East Liberty tho go-by.
For the grades wanted in this market
prices are fully np to last week.
Sheep nnd Lambs.
As the bulk of stock In this line which comes
to Liberty changes hands for Eastern markets,
it will be readily seen that trade would be slow
by reason of the difficulties in the way of ship
ment. Buyers from the East could not get here if
they had wanted to, and if they had been here,
would not have bought, because of difficulty
and extra expense of shipping, caused by
floods. For this reason prices are oft from 25d
to 40c Our loss has been Buffalo's gain. As
stock went promptly through by the Northern
route, many of Pittsburg's Eastern customers
obtained their supplies from that source. A
leading dealer said to-day: "We have no market
for sheep, and will not have until communica
tion is again opened with the east. Ills hardly
fair to give quotations, as our marketshere this
week are exceptional and furnish no just cri
terion to values." Nice tidy yearlings from 60
to 75 pounds here, are not in over supply. The
same 13 true of lambs from 45 to 65 pounds.
Both are in 'active demand and find ready
What Is true of the sheep market is largely
true of hogs.
The bulk of hog3 that came to the Liberty
yards are bought for the eastern trade.
This being virtually suspended this week,
there is really no quotable market here.
In a word, the hog and sheep market Is de
moralized, because the great calamity has
closed up the ordinary outlets of trade.

I am satisfied tnat Cancer is Hereditary in my
family. My father died of it, a sister ot my
mother died of it, and my own sister died of It
My feelings may be imagined, then, when (he
horrible disease made its appearance op. my
side. It was a malignant Cancer, eating in
wardly In such a way that it could jsot be cut
out. Numerous remedies were used for it, but
the Cancer grew steadily worse, until itseemed
that I was doomed to follow tbe others of the
family. I took Swift's Specific, which, from
the first day, forced out the poison and con
tinued its use until I had taken several bottles,
when I found myself welL 1 know that S. S. S.

it would have beeir had this doctor come to
