A BETTER TOKE TO BEEADSTDFPS. Some Items of Interest on the Leather llannfjctunng Art LIFE STOCK IS BOWS TO HAED PAN. Office or Jittsbtjbo Dispatch, l TUESDAY. June 25, X8S9.J Hoe Products. A representative of one of our leading pork packing firms Baid to-day: "Pittsburg is one of the poorest markets of the country in our line. We could sell pickled hams in Chicago a full Jc higher than we can here, and I would be glad if our entire product was in the "Western metroplis. Our expenses, taxes, etc., show no signs of decline, but rather the reverse, and at the same time we are getting less for our products than for a number of years. The truth is hogs have beea too high all the past season to afford any margin to packers. "While we havl found it best to buy at Chicago, we can now do better to sell our products there. The market for our product is limited to a certain territory, while Chicago has the world for its field. A provision buyer naturally goes to the Western metroDOlis for bis goods, and the result is that nnces are better maintained there than here or anywhere west of the sea board. Our firm has recently sold large quan tities of stock at Chicago to better advantage than we could have done at home." Tanners' Bark Mast Go. With all the improvements of late years in the tanning industry, there has been nothing discovered to take the place of bark in furnish ing a liqnld for the vat. The tannic acid en gendered by the dissolution of the oak and chestnut bark is still a prime necessity, as it was ages ago. A recent talk with a representa tive of one of onr leading Arms, engaged in the manufacture of harness leather, elicited the following: "As the tune approaches when onr native forests will be cleaned out, efforts are being made to supply the place of bark with extracts. Already there are lactones at Staunton and Huntington, W. Vi, and Olean, X. Y where bark extracts are prepared for shipment to the various centers of this industry. The cost of freiebfon bark, which is a bulky article, has come to be an important item in the cost ol leather manufacturing in these days of close margins. Our tanners here do not as yet use much of the bark extract, as we are near enough the Virginia forests to justify us in paying freight on bark. "But we all feel that the time is not far away when the bark extract will be generally used instead of bark. In Europe and New England there is little hark used by tanners. Ultimately we will have to come to this here. It is only a question of time. Already our tanners are using extract in small amounts, and the drift of the leather-making art is in the direction of the universal use of the extract in preference to the bark. There is, however, mnch 3 et to learn in the proper preparation of the extract, and its prober use w hen prepared. The large tanner has not yet learned now to gauge the extract, and pnt the proper amount in the vat. as he knows from long training the exact quantity of bark reqnired to produce the right result. It will come. Low ever, before long, when we will have to do as they do in old set tled countries, and learn how to make leather with bark extracts.' I.lie Stock. An old-time drover who furnishes cattle at flerr's Island yard, said to-day: -'Last week was the worst in our line this year, and, in fact, for several years. On the two carloads of cat tle I had for sale I lost S6S. But this week there Is an improvement. We did not have to pav as much for cattle in Chicago, and, while prices were a shade off from last week, there was a small margin of profit. Margins have been close all this year, and it required close watch ing ana a good deal ot iun to come out even. Prices of cattle have now fallen to a level in Chicago, which leaves a little profit to buvcrs v S Tri i. " i, " lu "u!":n r.,cre .i. e ?" hal to ?ay tj16, S!5e pneqs there this week as we have been doing for some time past we would have been losers on our operations." Breadstuff s. The current number of the Minneapolis Hitter finds some crumbs of comfort in the wheat and flour situation. It reports a sharp advance in winter wheat sections, owing to constant rainy weather, and in spring wheat sections for the opposite reason, namely a lack of moisture. Unfavorable reports of European weather, particularly in Russia, which took America's place last season in supplying West ern Europe with breadstuffs, have also served to stimulate flour markets. At all milling points the demand for cash wheat of the right grade has very much improved the past week or two. The result is alreadv felt here, as flour jobbers are much firmer in their views and are selling more freely than at any time this sea son. It seems that flour has touched bottom and the present drift is upward. LITE STOCK MARKETS. Condition of the Blarkct nt the East Liberty Stock Yards. Office Pittsbuho Dispatch.

Bad Crop News nt Home nod Abroad Booms the Wheat Olarket Corn and Oats Firm and Higher Hob Prod uct Somewhat Active and Strong, Chicago "Wheat was active and higher to day. The feeling developed was decidedly strong and the advance was steady and sharp from the opening. The shorts covered freely, and the market presented more lire and ani mation than for some days past. June closed 2c higher. July opened a .higher and ad vanced 2c more, was held firmly and closed 2c f higher than yesterday. The deferred futures shared in the improvement, and prices were advanced ltyic above yesterday's closing, and closed strong. The principal Influence on which the advance was supposed to have been established was the abundance of bad crop news from European countries, as well as the United States. The crops of Russia and Hungary were reported to be very poor. Cables were firm. From the Northwest came conflicting reports; some ad vices report the wheat not heading out well and others say the lookout is good: Some reports of rust were beard of in some sections South and Southwest and also that the crop in many sections had been exaggerated. Speculation had as much to do with the rise as the influences mentioned. The shortage no doubt is large and the short interest under the recent action of the market disposed' to cover, fearing that the movement of new wheat might be delaved so as to give the longs a chance for manipulation. A very fair business was reported in com, the bulk of which occurred during the first half of the session, after which the pit became rather quiet. The prevailing feeling was firm and trading, as. for several days past, was confined mainly to July and September, there being considerable pressure to exchange the former for the latter at a difference of c The mar ket opened at about tbo closing prices of yes terdav. was firm and advanced lie higher than Monday's close. In oats a firmer feeling was noticeable, espe cially on the more deferred futures, which were bought by the shorts. The bulk of the strength was dne chiefly to the advance in corn and wheat and the backwardness of holders in sell ing. An increased business was transacted in mess pork, and the market was stronger. Prices were advanced 15lKc, and the market closed steady. A quiet and rather firm feeling prevailed in the lard market: prices were well maintained and the market closed steady. Short ribs were moderately active and strong. Prices ruled 12K15c higher, and the advance was fairly supported.

STOCK DEALERS LOOK FOE A RALLY Confidence as Business Capital Illustrated by a Local Incident HOW GOLD IS C0DNTED AND WEIGHED A notable feature of the real estate market is the large number of workingmen who have purchased or are in quest of cheap lots. This fact being brought to the notice of a Fourth avenue agent yesterday, he re marked: "This feature of the market is not new to me. I have been aware of it for some time. Fully one-half of my sales are to this class of people. In many cases they pay cash, and afterward arrange for houses on tittle. A workingman with a home of his own may be said to be well fixed. He is then, to a certain degree, his own master. I am glad to. see this movement With the working element thoroughly identified with the city, its future is safe. "A man with property interests is always conservative on economic questions. This effort of the bone and sinew of the commun ity to acquire homes should be enconraged to the utmost. To them banks and land owners should be as lenient as possible." lr Confidence is the life of business. I was dis cussing this subject with a well-known gentle man yesterday one who has been honored Dy his fellow-citizens with several positions of trust in the municipal government when a young man, who was neatly dressed and of pleasant appearance, crossed the street and en tered a bank. "There is a case in' point," re marked my friend. "His success in life is en tirely due to the fact that myself and one or two others had confidence in him." ''The story isnodonht interesting, and as it may point a moral, I would like to have it." "It is short'" responded the gentleman, "but full of encouragement for young men who are making aji honest effort to establish themselves in business. I had known tho family of which he is a member for some time, but had no par ticular knowledge of the young man. One day about five years ago he came to me and re quested a private audience, during which he laid his plans before me. He had a strong de sire, he said, to better his condition by engag ing in mercantile pursuits, and begged my assistance to the extent of indorsing for him to the amount of 500. I gave him no decided answer, but requested him to call again in a few days. I was favorably impressed with his appearance, and frank, outspoken manner. I at once set to work to investigate his character and ascertain his business qualifications, both of which I found were good. I then broached the subject to a couple of my friends, told them .the result of my investigations, and requested their co-operation in the matter. This they willingly assented to, and the indorsement was given." "What was the resultr yThe yonng man went into business and pros pered. He canceled bis obligation to us lu less than a year. We offered to lend him our names whenever he needed money, but he de clined with thanks, saying he could get along without it. He has a reputation for honesty second to that oi no other man in the city. He does everything on the square. I was not mis taken in my man. But for the confidence he inspired in me he might to-day be filling a clerkship or some other subordinate position at a low salary." This little story, which has the merit of being true, conveys a lesson to young men which they should carefully ponder. Integrity is cap ital, A character for honesty once established, success, sooner or later, is sure to follow. The clerks at one of the leading banks were engaged for some time yesterday in the pre sumably agreeable work of counting gold coin, apropos of which the cashier, who was looking on, remarked: "Generally we count our gold but for special purposes we weigh it In counting we throw out all the pieces that are defaced by wear. Gold, as well as silver, we weigh twice a year, when the directors take stock. They fill a bag with J20 pieces, amounting in the aggregate to 5,000, and weigh it. All other bags containing a like amount must weigh the same, or the shortage must be made good. At the last count two bags fell $20 short This was occasioned by the presence of a number of pieces that had been in circulation so long that the milling had al most entirely disappeared. "In foreign countries gold is Invariably weighed and every imperfect piece rejected. A large proportion of the gold and silver coin in circulation in this country is soabiaided by use that it would hardly be looked at on the conti nent England is a little more liberal in this respect, but even there coins that are the least worn are regarded with disfavor." The firmness and activity displayed by stocks in New York afford encouragement to local speculators, one of whom remarked yesterday evening: "The revival of the speculative interest in New York will, in my opinion, have a good ef fect upon our local securities. Although they have been neglected for some time, they are in good shape, and a few good-sized buying orders would give them a whirl. There is no good reason why they shonld be in the rut. They are as sound as a dollar, representing first-class in terests, which will improve in value as they are developed. "At present prices I think most of them are good investments. Electric and the tractions will pay big dividends as soon as they get firmly on their feet" As showing the Irresistible force of the im mense volume of water that issued from the South Fork dam, a gentleman who witnessed the incident told me yesterday that it struck a rock almost as big as a two-story house, that was partly embedded lu the earth," and carried it a distance of nearly a quarter of mile, where it lodged against a large tree. It plowed a deep furrow, and demolished everything in its course. No wonder, therefore, that bouses, bridges, trees and everything else gave way be fore this tremendous display of power. DULL AND STEADY. Only a Small Movement In Stocks Orders Below ilio Marker. The stock market yesterday showed no im provement over that of th e previous day. Only three of the favorites received attention in the forenoon, the sales of which were 156 shares. They were Electric, Switch and Signal and Central Traction. There were no sales in the afternoon, and figures were almost as scarce as business. There was neither news nor gossip of importance, and prices were practically the same as have ruled for some time. There were orders for Switch and Signal at 23, and for Electric at 49X. Philadelphia Gas was the strongest stock on the list, being held at SS, with 37 bid in the afternoon.

Quiet Ecturns to tbo Oil Exchange Only One Lay-Down. There was a calm at the Oil Exchange yester day, presenting a strong contrast to the storm which swept over it the day before. But while quiet by comparison, the market was both strong and active. The fluctuations were small and rapid, affording the scalpers a good opportunity to turn an honest penny. The sales were not far from 2,000,000, agaist 3,606,000 the previous day. Tho market opened feverish at 91c, and in a short time sold np to 91Je, the highest point of the day. It then weakened and sold down to 89c, around which figure it hung for some time, with fluctuations of only a few points either way. In the afternoon It made a dash for the dollar line, but stooped at 91Kc, vacil lated between that point and 89c for a f ow minutes, and closed firm at 91c. Monday's panic fortunately resulted in only one lay-down, and that was for less than $3,000. It was not the fault of the broker, but of some of his customers, who failed to come up with their marcins. It is the general belief that he will mako a prompt settlement and resume his place on the floor. Trading in futures will begin to-morrow. Tho cause ot the flurry was generally at tributed to the change in the system of trading, bnt that was denied yesterday. A broker ex plained it thus: "It was more of an accident than anything else, and might have happened any time within a month. When oil reached 89c and none was offered the shorts lost their heads. They had to have the stuff and were willing to pay almost any price for it. A good many of the brokers wero at dinner about the timo the fun set in, and the few traders around tho ring wero either unable or unwilling to sup ply the demand. Indeed, they had no time to do much of anything, so qnickly did it all hap pen. In my opinion there was no reason at all for the panic" The report from New York that the pro ducers had closed out the 3,500,000 reserve to the Standard was not generally credited on change yesterday. There was no confirmation of the deal here, and nothing was known about it at Oil City. ADrokersaid: "As the option does not expire until July 1,1 do not see why the producers should be in such a hurry. By holding on to it a week longer, as the v are en titleo to do, they might get more than 90c. tho guaranteed priee for It I do not believe, the- report." , Fentnres of the llnrkct.

THE BOOM JN TRUSTS Continue nn Exciting; Feature of the Stock Market Rnllrouds Coming: to the Front A Flurry About Money Only Fractional Cunngn. New York, June 25. The stock market to day was firmer and more active for railroad shares and the trust were weak and feverish, occupying a less prominent position in the transactions, although they we're still extreme ly active. The sales of lead again crossed the 100,000 mark. There was no news of import ance to affect any portion of the market, though the-rumor-of the absorption of the At lantic Works by tho Lead Trust was again used to advance the stock. Its fluctuations, how ever, were on a much smaller scale than yes terday, and after the first few minutes' trading its tone was drooping and ratherweak. Sugar, on the other hand, was weak from the outset; and toward the close dropped to about Satuiday's figures. In the general list the speculative activity -was all in New England, but while the stock was strong throughout most of the day, there was but a fraction left of the improvement at tho close. A small flurry in money toward the dlose which sent the rale on call np to 6 per cent, had much to do with the reaction at that time, and all the strong stocks of the forenoon yielded materially. Pacific Mail becamo quite conspicuous at tbo opening of business by its weakness, caused by the report of the loss o( one of the company's steamers, but when the market began to move it recovered almost all of the loss from the opening figure, though having opened down it shons a-roarked decline at the end at tho dar The Hocking Valley securities showed more animation, aud tbo stock becamo one of the leading strong stock", though the dealings in it were on a small scale, a, usual. There were further reports of rate ratting in tho West, but It seemed to'bave little, or no effect upon the umijiB, MtuAKu vtcro comparatively quiet, vrhilo the Coal stocks, especially Lackawanna and Beading, were active, aad displayed con- sidarablo strength, being better snpported than nsualot late. The stocks of the Chicago and .liast Bllnols were again prominent for the strength shown, but their final gains were small. The opening was rather heavy and the first prices were generally from Vi to J per cent lower than last evening's figures, though a good sign was the comparative strength shown by the shares of the regular list and the de crease In the animation among trusts. The transactions in lead were again on a large scale, however, and the fluctuations in sugar were very wide and the gain of yesterday was lost as quickly as it had been made. In the general list the strength shown in Lackawanna, New England and some others spread to the rest of the market, though Pacific Mall was specially weak. The. excitement In the trusts rapidly died away and the fluctuations after the first hour were made within a comparatively narrow-range. The stocks of tho regular list continued strong and prices slowly crept up, though there was little animation outside of the few leaders, until toward delivery hour, when the realizations began and the market moved off slowly. The close was qniet and fairly steady, generally at small fractions better than the opening prices. Sugar displayed the most ex treme weakness in the last hour, however, and dropped to 116, .though a portion of the loss was recovered in the last few minutes. There were sales of 151,536 snares of unlisted stocks, of which Lead Trust furnished 110,275, sugar, 28,014, and Cotton Oil, 11,307, The final changes are generally for fractions, but Pacific Mail is down 1. There was the usual lack of feature in the railroad bond market but the tone of the deal ings was again strong, and except the Ohio, In diana and Western firsts, which dropped 10 per cent to 62, and the Kansas and Texas issues, there was no weakness anywhere apparent. The sales reached $1,553,000. to which the Ches apeak and Ohio 5s contributed $189,000. Gal veston, Harrisburg and San Antonio firsts rose 3 to 110, and Toledo, Ann Arbor and Grand Trunk firsts 2 to 118.

The Swiss cantonal authorities have begun the establishment of a unique contrivance to connect tho summit of Mount Pilatus with the highest point of the Klimsenhorn. This will consist of cables swinging in mid-air between these two lofty eminences, and at many points hundreds of feet from the ground below. An omnlbns large enough to carry eight people will be propelled over pulleys along these cables by a steam engine to be placed on the top of Mount Pilatus, near the Bellevue Hotel. One hundred and fifty nonnds of quartz, carrying gold at the rate of $50,000 a ton. were brought in from the Michigan gold mine, near Ishpeming, the other day. A new shaft was started last Thursday, and at a depth of four feet a pocket of quartz-carrying gold was struck. The vein at the point where the find was made is three feet wide double tho width of the vein at points previously worked. The discovery has caused much excitement and Is regarded as the most important yet made in the Ishpeming gold range. Secretary of the Interior Noble says of the story that Mr. Blaine is going to leavo the Cabinet: "That is all nonsense.

In relation to Corporal Tanner and the Pen sion Bureau, Secretary Noble said: "That is my department, and I can say that Tanner Is not going out of it. There is nothing in those stories.

News has been received from Arlee, the principal town on the Flathead reservation, in Montana, that Sheriff Heybarn and tbo posse of Missoula connty, who went to tbo reserva tion to arrest three Indian murderers, are hav ing a battle with the Indians, who refuse to give up the men wanted. Two Indians are re ported to have been killed already. Agent Ronan has called on the officer at Fort Missoula for troops, but that official is waiting orders irom wasmngton. in tue meantime a posse of well-known citizens from Missoula, headed by the Mayor, has been organized and is on its way to aid tho Sheriff. The civil officers are de termined to arrest the murderers, and, as the Indians arc determined not to give them-up, serious trouble is feared. Fifty persons have been poisoned at West son. Canada. A druggist had sold sugar of lead instead of tartaric acid for making lemon ade. Fifteen aro reported to be dying. The others are considered out of danger.

The preliminary surveys of a railroad to run from Jaffa, on the seacoast in Palestine, to Jerusalem, and thence to Bethlehem, have just been completed, and a party of engineers will start from London this weak for tho Holy Land to lay out the route. A cdmpany' has already been formed to build the road, in which a num ber of French and English bankers are inter ested. From all accounts It Is a purely busi ness enterprise, without a trare nf sentiment or religious fervor.

After spending many hun dreds of dollars, I was pronounced incurable. I h eard of the Cuticusa Remedies, and after using two bottles of cuticura Resolvsst, I could see a change; and after I had takes' four bottles, 1 was almost cured: and when t had used six bottles of Cuticura Resolvzst- , and one box of Cuticura, and one cake of CuncUBA Soap, I was cured of the dreadful. disease from which I bad suffered for fire years.
