F wrpwr 3H- 4 i THE P1TTSBTJRG' DISPATCH,' FRIDAY, AUGUST 16, 1889.' THE TBEND OF TRADE. Sweet Potato and Florida Trusts to Loom Up. Orango PRODUCTS OP FARM AND GARDEN, Fine Prospects for Large Produce Held in this Region. WEEK'S WOEE AT THE LIBERTY IAEDS OFFICE OFPlTTSBURD DISPATCH, Thursday, August 15, issa. j Among the newest of the trusts are the Sweet Potato Trust, of Baltimore, and the Florida Orange Trust, of Hew York City. Both have beeu organized within the past three weeks. A leading Liberty street commission merchant said to-day: "The Sweet Potato Trust has succeeded In sending the Southern product into our market in better shape and at reduced prices. "The preliminary meeting for the Florida Orange Trust has been held and the organiza tion will be perfected the 1st of September. Already representatives have been sele cted in tins and all trade centers. The idea is to dis tribute the fruit at places where ltjs wanted, and prevent the gluts which have proved a bane to orange shippers in jears gone by." Products of Farm and Gnrden. Advices from all Pittsburg's natural terri tory confirm the fact already mentioned in this column that the wheat, oats, hay and vegetable crops for 1889 will be the largest gathered for many J ears. Corn, too, which ban a backward start, and did not promise well in the early stages, has been making up for lost time of late by the aid of seasonable showers, anaprospocts are immensely improved for the corn crop the past SO days. The yield of potatoes this season in Western Pennsjlvania and Eastern Ohio will break all former records. Said a peddler from Clinton, who pays weekly visits to our city, and whose route embraces a larce part of the Panhandle territory of West Vircinla: "On my beat farm firodncts are unusually large, and in some lines aiger thau I have known in 15 years of ped dline. Such a large jield of potatoes I have never known Wheat, oats and bay are far above the average in quantity. Ay to fruit, w hile apples will fall below last yeaFs yield, we will bave an average volume. Peaches and plumsarc almost a total failure. In 1U) miles travel this u eck I did not see a dozen plums on the trees which were loaded down last season. "Ono of my principal difficulties this season is to procure enough poultry to meet demands. It is next to impossible to get anv nearer the city than Chanters ith any poultry left. "The demand for country butter has also im proved very much in the past ten days. In stead of being a drag, as it was a couple of weeks ago, it now goes like hot cakes. The activity in butter has started much sooner than usual. "Eggs also have taken an upward turn, and reliable stock sells readily at outside quota tions." The evidence of abundance in cereal lines is seen in the large receipts. Since Monday morning 70 carloads of oats have bten bulle tined at the Grain Exchange. Local Live Stock. The week has developed a healthier tone to live stock trade, and choice grades of cattle and sheep are commanding better prices than for some weeks past. The supply of good, smooth butcher cattle has not been up to de mand. Low grade cattle, of which tho propor tion was unusually large in this week's sup plies, were off in prico and slow of sale. The demand for export has been so active of late at the West that our market here has suf fered a lack of desirable grades.

IREEPBESSIBLE ANARCHISTS. They Propose to Carry Ont the ProEramme Besnn In Chicago. Chicago, August 15. The Pioneer and Support Association will hold r, picnic at Sheffield, Ind., next Sunday for the purpose of replenishing the innd from which the widows and orphans of the executed or i m prisoned Anarchists are supplied. Thecal), which is published in the Arbeiler Zritunn inviting attendance at the picnic, reads al-J most use me utterances bo commonly heard before the Haymarket bomb put an end to Anarchist mouthings. Quoting from the speech made by Robert Reitzel, of Detroit, on the burial of the Anarchists, it says: "We will carry out what these men were striving for. TVe will bring about the prac tical enforcement of the rights ol man, which were long ago given on paper. ''Those were the rows which thousands nnd hundreds ot ihonsandi of men, who were indignant nt the horrible murder of November 11, made with profound gravity of purpose, with gnashing of teeth and clenched fists. They rowed to fulfill the legacy of those who had fallen for liberty ud right." MABEETSBY WIBE. No Snap la the Wheat Pit The Drift of Prices Downward Corn and Oals Los Their Grip Do Prod nets Active and Unsettled. CHICAGO There was a notable absence of snap in both the cash and speculative branches of the wheat trade to-day. The general driftof the news was less bullish, and although early cables were c dearer for spot wheat the open ing here was barely steady at the closing range of yesterday. Business in the pit dragged heavily all forenoon with fluctuations in prices so narrow as to attract but little attention. c covering all the changes up to 12 o'clock. Fair weather prevailed everywhere on this side and in England it was reported fine. It was probably this tact that gave to the market here an undertone or weakness in the early dealing, and the further fact that re ceipts were somewhat above the estimates. From 78Jc December shrunk to 78Kc. the market swinging a greater portion of the time between 7SJ7Sc with the business passing almost entirely local and nnder an average volume. The market remained limp and un interesting up to the last. Near the close De cember settled to 78c, latest quotations being TSKc or c below yesterday's close. The buy inrr nresaiirA fnr Nn. 2coAh and Aurust let un perceptibly to-day, and in undesirable houses the former would not bring any premium over seller the month. Corn was fairly active early in the day, but later ruled quiet. The feeling on the whole was easier, and the bulk of the trading was at lower prices. The influences on the market were much the same as noted for several days fiast, the operations of a large local bolder bav ng considerable to do with the market. It opened at yesterdays dosing prices and was easy, one or two large houses selling freely. Prices declined in all J6Hc. but the pur chasers of the trader above mentioned who took large quantities at 35c for September sus tained tho market, but final quotations were JKe lower than yesterday. Oats were traded in with less freedom and a quiet and easier feeling prevailed and prices averageu a iracuon lower. , In pork prices ruled irregular and lower, with qnlte an activo business reported.

Quite a good business was transacted in lard. Early the Veiling was steadied, and prices ruled slightly higher. Later a weak feeling was de veloped and prices receded 7K10c Toward the close the feeling wasSUadler and prices were slightly improved, but declined again to inside figures and closed easy, A fairly active trade was reported in short rib sides and the feeling was easier.

One Kallrond Gives Tbnt Figure to the Milwaukee G. A. &. Encampment. Chicago, August 15. TheXouisville, New Albany and Chicago Railway Com pany (Monon route) has made the first break in rates to the .Milwaukee Grand Army encampment. As a result of yester day's meeting in Cincinnati of passenger agents of Chicago-Ohio river lines, at which they failed to agree, the Monon this morn ing gave notice it would make it rate of a ceut a mile over the whole line to veterans attending the encampment. The Kankakee joined hands with the Monon in the cent-a-mllerate and 'the Pan handle will probably be forced to meet it. Grand Army men are jubilant over the an nouncement and. prophesy it Is but the be ginning ot a universal break by all the lines to the cent-a-mile rate. Metnl Market, NiwYoBK-Copperneelected.

A BROKERS OPINION OP MUST STOCKS Nerotiations were set on foot resterdar. which may result in the building of 500 dwelling houses on opened near the city. plan bf lots just It is too soon to give details, but the mere announcement is of i public interest, as showing that there is no lack of enterprise among Pittsburg capi talists. ' a . The old homestead of the late James P. Barr, on Fifth avenue, Fourteenth ward, has just been sold to William Loeffler and Edwin L. Porter, Esq., for $31,500. The purchasers will divide the property between them. It fronts 150 leet on Fifth avenue, running back 274 feet to Forbes street. The price is considered very reasonable, and is less than has been paid for property in the same vicinity. It is understood that the sale was conducted by Messrs. Black & Baird. Another sale reported yesterday was that of the Beeler property on Wilkins avenue, con sisting ol a lot 250x300 feet. The price paid was S20,00a Three or four gentlemen are inter ested in the transaction, but th('y declined to let their names be used at present. They bought for an investment. a It was reported on excellent authority yester day that a Philadelphia capitalist had sent $100,000 here within a few days past fr invest ment in real estate, but neither his name nor the kind of property he wants could be ascer tained. It is understood that a Wood street firm has charge of the busineA. This should stir up home investors. Pittsbnrg realty should be owned by Pittsburg peoplfj, who ate more likely to be Interested in its development than foreigners. Still, outsiders 'are entirely wel come, and the fact that they consider Pittsburg a good place in which to mike Investments is more beneficial than otherwise. ... Concerning the trust stocks. In which a num ber of Pittsburg speculator are interested, a broker said yesterday: "They have so far failed to establish confidence in their staying qualities, because of the refusal of their pro moters to furnish Information about them. They are mysteries, and thoiu'who dabble in them do so at great risk. It It known that'they are heavily capitalized, or watered, leaving their actual value a matter of uncertainty. Ac cording to a recent statement the capitalization of these concerns Is about as follows:- Lead Trust, $83,018,800; Sugar Trust, $19,856,200; Cotton Oil Trust, $4,185,200; American Cattle Trust, $13,396,500; Distillers and Cattle Feeders' Trust, $30,726,603. It requires a larce amount of busi ness to pay dividends on these Immense sums." The gentleman added: "I can see no good reason why Pittsburg people should sncculate. In foreign securities, ot which they know abso lutely nothing, when there are hundreds of reliable properties at home, about which full information can be obtained at anytime. Some of them have been watered too much, yet they represent a certain fixed value, which is more likely to increase than diminish. If these men would confine their operations to the Pitts burg Exchange we would hare a lively market right along. By doing this they would not only benefit themselves, nut, by keeping their money at home, assist in building up all kinds of busi ness. The Thirty-third street sewer, upon whioh working is progressing as fast as practicable, is a big undertaking; but it will be of great bene fit to the district through which it passes. Be ginning at Roup station it passes through Sbadyside, Ben Venue, where it is tunneled through the hills, and so on down to the Alle gheny river, where It-will be nine feet In diame ter. The average diameter Is about six feet. The sewer will be a common carrier all along the route. The creek at Roup and Shadyside will flow through it. A similar sewer Is con templated at Negley run for the East Liberty district. . The iron market is in a satisfactory condi tion to both manufacturers and consumers to the former because they have all the orders they can handle, and to the latter because prices are reasonable, neither high nor low, but about a fair average. There have been no changes in quotations since last week, but they are very firm. At the recent meeting of pipe men in New York existing discounts were re affirmed. The proposition to organize a nail syndicate seems to have fallen through because of the opposition of two or three mills. All of the iron mills are very busy, with a good pros pect of so continuing through the fall and win ter. The only danger to be feared is an ex tremely cold winter, which would stop bridge building and railroad making and repairing. MORE FIGURES THAN BUSINESS. Stocks Dull nnd Listless A Broker Who Never Wnshes. Another lump In Natural Gas of West Vir ginia was the main feature of the stock mar ket yesterday, but the improvement was more nominal than real, as there were no transactions in it. It was offered in the afternoon at 76, with 74 bid. Wheeling was firm. The other gassers were weaker, if anything, as were, also, the tractions. La Nona was a trifle off, but it gave rise to some interest and a little amusement. A few bnndles bf it were tossed about, shuttle cock fashion, between Mr. Bailey and Mr Fink, selling and reselling to each other to save the day. 'Ob, that's wash," remarked a broker. "No you are wrong there,;' chimed m another "Mr. Fink never washes." This brought down the house. After this episode, 200 shares of the stuff found a buyer aU. The only other sale was 17 shares of Philadelphia Oas at 37K. The rest of the list was as feature! ess as a profes sional politician. Captain Barbour's afternoon effort was rewarded with a goose egg, within which was represented a fowl in an advanced stage of decomposition. Bids and offers were: ' UOBXIXG. ATTXHironx-- Bld. Asked.

A financier remarked: "While the money market shows a slight hardening tendency, there is no fear regarding the future. A brisk demand for funds is anticipated in the near future, but bankers feel confident there will be no stringency. They rely upon the Treasury Department coming to their .relief if occasion should arrive, of, which, however, there is no prospect."

Disposition to Regain the Dollar Line. Except for a little while in the forenoon, the petroleum market was dull and uninteresting yesterday. There were several long spells of waiting for something to turnup. Just after the opening there was a spurt of activity, dur ing the existence of which most of the trading was done, and the best nures of the day made. Pittsburg was a moderate buyer, sustaining the market The day was rather favorable to the bulls. The close was steady at cent bet ter than the opening. There was no change in refined, and no par ticular disposition to hammer the market. The dollar line was not touched, but the undercur rent was in that direction. Very little was dene in cash oil.

A WAITING MABKET. Wall Street Anxlons for Something to Torn Up to Brenk tho Monotony An At tack on Atchison and n Drop In Kngnr the Featurts. New Yobk, August 15. The dullness In the stock market was further increased to-day, and tho total transactions tor the davwero the smallest for any full day for long time. This feature was even more marked in the unlisted department than in the regular list. The fluct uations of prices were on the same limited scale as the business, and less than half a dozen of the usually active stocks were traded In over a range of over Jf per cent. Tho mar ket Is a waiting one, and the leaders must give some sign of their Intentions before the traders and the public will tako hold with any vim. The only features of the day were the pressure upon the Southwestern stocks, which fonnd expression toward the close in a sharp attack upon Atchison, which lorced that stock over 1 per cent, and the unusual strength in jnissonn, Jiansas ana Texas, upon talk of a favorable outcome of the reorganization. There was at times considerable pressure npon Reading andNorthexn Pacific preferred but no Impression was made npon either and their fluctuations 'were about on a par with those ot the rest of the list. The stocks of the new Big Four were comparatively neglected until the last hour, when the common made a fractional advance with some inrrnaiu, i ani mation. Among the specialties Pullman. Short Line and American Express sold materially higher than tha previous sales. The opening was firm with most stocks slightly higher than last evening, vhile Louisville and Nashville was up X. buttBMmarket was very tame and the only movement of importance was a frac tional decline in sugar. ,.T0,raI.d,noo.2tneatta,eknPon Atchison and Missouri Paclflo caused a fractional decline in both of those stocks, with Northern Paclflo preferred and Reading following, but the uen eral list remained stagnant, with a drooping tendenoy. In, the afternoon this movement was reversed, and the losses of the forenoon were generally recovered. The pressure upon Atchison was snddenly renewed after 2 p. it, and it declined IK percent, but the others Rave no slen of svmnatoizing with it nri th. ... ly closed Intensely anil and steady axawnt J opening figures. .The final changes, except in Atchison, which is down V. per cent, are for small fractions only, and about equally di vided between gains and losses. The transactions in railroad bonds were on the nsnal limited scale, reaching only $756,000, and the only featnre was the activity In the Texas and Pacific seconds, which furnished $113,000 to the total business.

Little Progress In the Attempt to Purchase the Cherokee Strip. - Little Bock, August- 15. Specials from Indian Territory say that the Cherokee Commission is making little progress in negotiating with the Cherokees for the pur chase of the Cherokee strip. Mr. "Wilson and Mr. Pairchlld, of the commission, will possibly set out to-day for the agency of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians to begin negotiations with those tribes for the land claimed by them. The Cherokees repudiate this claim, and the action of the Commis sioners is considered impolitic. Commis sioner Wilson believes that the Cherokees will ultimately sell the strip to the United States, and that the feeling in favor of such a sale is daily gaining ground. LATE NEWS IN BRIEF. The New York Republican State Committee has decided to hold the State Convention In Saratoga on September 25. John McDonongh, aged 60, a Union veteran of the civil war, at present in Glasgow, Scot land, has applied for admission to some soldiers home in this country. Much corres pondence has passed between Consul Under wood and officials at New York. McDonongh served In the Fourteenth New York, and also in the Fifth. He has honora tie discharges, but neglected to take ont citizen's papers. Gen. Martin T. Mahone, Secretary of the National Soldiers' Home, has written to him telling Mc. Donough to come on at once. A 6-year-old daughter.of Jacob Mann, a hotel keeper of Hicksville, L. L, died under pe culiar circumstance. The child complained to her father that she had a slight cold and he told her to go to her mother and she wonld give her some medicine. Instead of going to her mother the child went to a closet and took a long draught of whisky from a demijohn. boon alter she fell asleep ana never awoke again. Two physicians were called in but they could not revive ber. An autopsy showed that the whisky had killed her. The storm which passed over the Missouri valley Monday night was the most disastrous known to that section this season. Over 20 persons, it is said, were killed by-lightning, and the damage in animals killed and ruined crops will run up over $500,000. This, of course, in cludes the damage done to railroads.

It is as follows: "It Is the practice of many distillers to nse and reuse, constantly, the same packages for con veylng spirits from distilleries to rectifying bouses. Such reuse has been permitted for the reason that it Is alleged that lUs a saving to distillers In cooperage, but from a full investi gation of this practice it Is fonnd to result in great loss of revenue to the Government by reason of the tax on a part of the contents being evaded each time that package is so re used and the loss Increased with each reuse, ir the tax thus evaded were only that on the fractional part of a proof gallon which each package contained, less than flf ty.bundredtbs, then this office might not deem It an abuse to be prohibited under the law: but thalosa from tti ' source lsamaU compared with thatre Mltiajr from otter causes. -M 29X 29H B73S 67 S 22K $ 34W H . 3B)J 4V 181 MX DOMESTIC MARKETS.

A year ago at this time creamery butter was being stored in large quantity. At present this is impossible as there is good demand for all that comes to market. In fruit lines peaches are the only article that seems to be over abundant. Potatoes and apples are not so plentiful as they were a week or two ago. Watermelons are firm.
