Ti'S PITTSBURG DISPATCH, WED1SESDAY, SEPTEMBER' -'lif ''1889.!
.ll.r THE TREND OF TRADE. Improved Tone All Alon? Com mercial Lines Beported. THE SHOE TRADE'S FINE OUTLOOK. Boom in Carriage Hardware, and an Ex position Stimulus. EUBBEE GOODS MOVING OUT SLOWLT Office of Pittsbubg Dispatch, 1 Tuesday, September 10, 1SS9. A decided change has come over the busi ness barometer, and for the better, in the past ten days. In every line there is an im proved tone, and it is evident that the worst is past. Among our merchants there is gen eral hopefulness and good cheer, and if tee do not have an extra fall trade, there will be general disappointment in business cir cles. Even cereals, which in this region are more abundant than they have been for many years, begin to feel the effect of the improved tone to markets. There never was a better crop of wheat, oats and hay through out the territory of which Pittsburg is the center, and for the past month markets in cereal lines nave dragged, with a general down ward drift. Tnis downward tendency has at last been arrested, and markets show a healthier tone for tbe past week. It will be seen, by reference to our domestic market column, that oats, bay and mill feed bave taken an upward tnrn within a few days. Roots nnd Shoes. A leading jobber in tbis line thus puts tbe past,prescnt and future of the trade: "Our sum mer trade in volume was larger than ever be fore. We sold more goods in the months of Jaly and August this ear thait we did in tbe same months of last year. We have not sent out as many salesmen, having concluded to let the Southern and far Western trade go. but not withstanding this our aggregate sales since tbe 1st of January last have been larger than for tbe corresponding period of last year. To be sure, margins of profit have been closer than ever before; but there is ol late a tendency toward better prices.. Leather is looking up and shoes ar following close. There is now very little city demand lor boots. Concress and lace iinA. .. ,tin nnri b::ttnn and lace shoes for ladles and children are all the go of late. ery few calf boots aie sold as compaied with a lew years ago. Heavy upper and kip boots for country trade are the principle article in tbis line we handle these dajs. The city gentle man who now wears a calfskin boot is an ex ception: whereas, a score of years ago, he was the rule. Boots now are onlv used to any con siderable extent by tbe country people, who must needs tramp into swamps, and through briar patches. "Tbe rubber trade is better than a year ago at this time. Rubber boots are moving out freely. The Candce Rubber Company, of New Haven, whose goods have been ou the market for 40 cars or wore, have recently notified us that thev find a difficulty meeting orders, and that their supply of rubber boots is exhausted. If the coming winter makes an early start, manutacturers of rubber goods will have all they cau do to meet demands. You may say for our firm that we bave seen no time when the fall outlook for the boot and shoe trade was better than it is right now." Cnrriaee Unrdware. There are four firms in this city engaged ex clusively in handling this line of goods. A representative of one of these houses, in an in terview to-day, said: "Our August trade was larger than any previous month. We were most agreeably surprised in posting up our books for that month to find that our volume of trade was 35 per cent better than for the previ ous August. September, so far, shows no signs of a falling off in business. We turned out m ire good- j esterday than w e ever did be fore in one day. "Jobbing trade in winter goods, such as blankets and robes, is now at its best. Saddlery and carriage goods hold up unusually well. The fall outlook for trade was never better. "Collections, which were slow a few weeks ago, bave greatly improi ed since the beginning of the month, especially in rural districts; the abundant crops are being turned into money oy the farmer, and we already feel the good effects. "Besides the Exposition has been a help to our trade, and will be a greater help further on. Our mails show that customers are coming, ard all signs point to tbe largest fall trade we bave ever had. The little money our firm put iuto life membership in the Exposition Society uasaircaay come uacK in increased volume ol trade, and we will get our own' back manv times over for that in estment."

Poor GrndlnK Favors the Bulls In the Wheat Fit Melt Cables Lend Additional Strength and Hither Prices Established Corn and Onts Sironeer. Chicago. Prices were advanced in the wheat market to-day in tbe face of sick cables, public and private. The initial strength and He higher on opening was duo to the execrable grading of the receipts and the small -percentage of No. 2 in elevator stocKs here. Only seven cars out of a total of 338 graded contract, or 2 per cent, the grain regis trars reporting over the total quantity on hand a year a,jo. when Hutchinson began his corner, and that operator is now, on the authority of a morning paper, between 2,000,000 and 3,000,000 bushels long of the market. The feeling gradually worked firmer until a gain of Jlcover yesterday's closings was established, but a slight reaction just at the finish left the net gain for the day c. Be tween 12 and 1 o'clock the market was bullish on rumors that the Government crop report, dne this afternoon, would show three points reduction in the average condition of spring wheat. The trading to-day was mainly in De cember and May. A moderate business was transacted in corn, and the market was somewhat firmer. It opened 0 above the closing prices of yester day and under liberal purchases by one or two large houses advanced J5c Offerings then became larger, the local crowd selling freely, and the market reacted JiSJe'c, rallied when the estimates for to-morrow came in, and closed Hiic better than yestefday. A stronger leellng developed In oats, and prices advanced Jfi Jc Trading was more an imated, but centered chiefly in May, which was purchased quite freely by several heavy opera tors. Tho nearby deliveries were not ottered with any degree of freedom, and prices appre ciated slightly. Rather more business was transacted in pork, and tbe feeling was somewhat unsettled. Prices ruled 7075c lower early, but rallied to medium figures, closing quiet. On the other band, Jau uarv showed more steadiness, ruling at abont esterday's figures. An easier feeling prevailed in lard, and trad ing was onlv moderate. Prices ruled 2K5c lower, and tbe market closed quiet at meuium figures. Short ribs were quiet and the feeling easy.

A Fourth avenue real estate dealer re marked yesterday evening: "Business is in good condition, and gives promise of great activity during the fall and winter. Values are very firm, with advances in some cases, but I do not think they will go much higher. On the other hand, they will not decline. I think this is a good time to buy. There is considerable cheap property on the market which will soon he picked up. I am negotiating several important deals, in cluding two or three business sites, which I expect to close up in a few days." More wool was sold last week in the seaboard markets than for some time past, and prices were fully sustained on the basis of the re duced quotations. The outlook for woolen goods is somewhat better, contracts being se cured readily, and the manufacturers, to that extent, are more willing buyers of material. The margin, however, between tbe current cost of wool and the returns for goods is too narrow to afford much satisfaction. The strength of the market is due principally to the fact that high prices were paid by the dealers for the staple which they bave in store, and nothing short of absolute financial neces sity will induce them to make further con cessions. The prevailing opinion accordingly points to a steady trade on about the present level of values. The $400,000 deal for manufacturing property, though still worked for a mystery, is making progress. About $50,000 has been paid S20.000 yesterday on tbe purchase, and tbe remaining payments will be made before long. Tbe gen tleman managing tbe transaction still refuses to give the details, on the ground that the princi pals object to the notoriety that publication would give them. Asked yesterday to locate the property, he replied: "I am not at liberty to do so, but I will say this: I could send a ball from a five-pounder to It from Fourth avenue." Labor organizations are moving to have Labor Day made a national holiday. The holiday this year was very widely observed in many States, and this observance has acted as an impetus to the movement for a still more pronounced rec ognition of the day next year. The Western mortgage business is being pushed for all there is in it and perhaps con siderably more The Honker's Monthly gives the farm mortgage indebtedness in Kansas as $235,000,000: Indiana, $035,000,000; Iowa, $567,000, 000; Michigan. $500,000,000; Wisconsin, $357,000, 000, and Ohio, $1,237,000,000. With the return of investors from their vaca tions, the business in mortgages improves. Thirty-nine were recorded yesterday, the two largest being for $35,000 each. Some of them were for very small amounts, two being for $50. two for $75, and one for$S0. There is still plenty of money seeking this investment, but rates show a hardening tendency. The Wall Street Kews thinks Vice-President McCrea, of the Pennsylvania Company, is a lucky man, and adds: "In the natural order of things having reached the Fourth Vice-Presidency of the Pennsylvania Company, bis pro motion would have been slow, but John D. Mc Cullongb, the First Vice-President, is now an old man, and was many years in getting to that position. Now William Thaw, the Second Vice-President, is dead, and Mr. Messier, Third Vice-President, is ill. Thus the way is paved for Mr. McCrea to go right to the head of the company when he is barely 40 years of age. It Is fortunate for the company, under tbe circum stances, that the promotion is merited." Current railway earnings continue to reflect the growing prosperity of the companies. As compared with last year the gross earnings of 41 lines for the fourth week in August in creased 12.91 per cent, and for the month of August 52 lines increased 9.89 percent, it bile for the third week in August 87 lines increased gross 11.66 percent This is certainly a good exhibit and accounts for the bullish feeling in Wall street, concerning which Jay Oould said on Monday: "Each day conditions improve. The market appears to be in first class trim. There is no doubt about its going higher." 9 Owing to the failure of the Baku oil wells and agricultural depression, the Russian nobles are rushing to bankruptcy in great num bers. The credit bank for lending money to them on mortgage of their land, established by the Government two or three years ago, has now no less than 2,000 estates which will have to be sold by public auction at the end of this year for the non-payment of interest on loans. unchanged. Small notes were scarce. The clearings were 81,568.210 54 and the balances $335,557 72. According to BradttreeVt In only five in stances are decreases in bank clearings reported for the month of August, and they, with but one exception, are small, the decreased totals for the month, amounting in each instance to less than $5,000,000. The only important In stance where a decline Is shown Is San Fran cisco, amounting to L3 per cent. The other Aufcnstdecl'nes are at Lowell, Grand Rapids, Topeka, Norfolk and Los Angeles. Denver, Fort Worth and Dallas show tho largest pro portionate gains. The August total at Denver is 64 per cent larger than tbe corresponding total in 18S8, and twice as large as the like total two years ago, and nearly three times as large as the ag gregate for 1886. Fort Worth and Dallas report clearings for August about as large again as in August 18S8. Among the other cities ap pearing to do remarkably well may be men tioned Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Louisville, Chicago. St. Louis and Milwaukee.

Tbe pipe line report posted at the Oil Ex change yesterday was very bullish, as had been anticipated. It showed a decrease in round numbers of 800,000 in stocks and 1,200,000 in cer tificates. That such statistics should cause an advance was quite natural, but that a slump of y& should immediately follow was unex pected and surprisln g. Tbe market was strong and higher in the forenoon and weak and lower in the afternoon. Based on tbe bullish report, the first quota tion was 100. Buying here and in the East soon put the price up to 100 the best of tbe day. In the atternoon the longs thought it was a good time to realize, and sold the market down to 99, tbe lowest and closing figure. The weakness seemed to come mainly from New York, though it was helped along by sellng here and in Oil City. A broker remarked: "The slump was a str prise. Nobody dreamed of the market selling down under the bullish conditions shown n the pipe line report. To-day's.operations con firm my belief that there is a power behind tie exchanges tbat is greater than they. Slumps when there should be advances, and vice versi, are proof of it. This leaves ,ug nothing uptn which to make ca'culations. I am all at sea'as to what to look forward to to-morrow." i standing that tbe general feeling still remains, bullish, became most marked, and many of tbe traders shifted over to the bear side early in the day. London to-day seems to bave caught up u tnis center in tne matter ol strength, ana the prices from that place were higher for the first time in many days, but the Influences above mentioned caused an irregular but gen erally weak opening here, and among tbe active stocks tbe declines from last night's prices eacnea yA per cent, wnue Tennessee coat was down 1 per cent. London bad large buying or ders in Reading, and its securities, as well as in trie and some other of its favorites, but the pressure to sell in tbe rest of the list soon re moved what little strength was shown in them. The support accorded Reading by tbe for eigners, however, served to Keep It firm in the face of tho weakness of the other coalers, though the decline in Jersey Central .seemed to be on sufferance only. Louisville and Nash ville and Manitoba were the most prominent weak spots in the early trading, and each lost 1 percent. A somewhat better tone was devel oped toward noon, but except in Northern. Pacific preferred and Reading the movement attracted little notice. In the afternoon a steady, though slow, decline took place, the only notable exception being Lake Erie and Western preferred, which suddenly rose to 5. There was some realizing of profits upon the day's aecllno in the last half hour, and tbe Closing flo-tirM wArAfL ftharia hpttpr than thft lowest, the market being about steady at tbe improvement Lake Erie and Western preferred shows a gain of 1 per cent, but beside this the final ad vances are few in nnmber and unimportant. Railroad bonds were again moderately active, the business of the day extending to $1,610,000, of which Reading firsts contributed $519.000 and the seconds $156,000. The market displayed none of yesterday's strength, but sagged with tbe share list throughout. The roliowlnp table snows tbe prices oractrre stocks on the New York Stock Exchange yester day.

A traveler who was crossing the Eocky Mountains overheard a teamster tell the story of a mother bear and her cub, giving what he called a good example of human mothers in family government. The team ster was going up the mountain lor pine logs, driving a wagon. On the top of a large rock by the side of the road was a young bear. The mother had started up the mount ain as the team aDDroached. "The cub looked so cute," said the team ster, "lying there with its paws dropping over th'e edge of the rock, watching the horses as they came up. Presently tbe old bear fame bounding back to the cub, and, giving it a cudge with her nose, started up the mountain again, expecting the 'young one' to follow. "But the cub made no move. The old bear then came back the second time. and. taking up the cub in her arms, gave him several cufis. "This time the cub obeyed orders and fal lowed the old bear in a gallop up the side of the mountain. "He knew, that cub did, that he'd better mind, for that old bear wouldn't stan any more foolin'."

A Boy Preferred tbe Latter to the President, to Bide With. Krom the Philadelphia InqulrerJ A good story is being told of President Harrison, which illustrates how the head of the nation can adapt himself to all circum stances in which he may be placed. "When the President was returning from his Bar Harbor visit last month in company with Private Secretary Halford, their special car upon reaching Philadelphia was attached to the 3:58 express for 'Washington over the Pennsylvania Eallroad. Shortly after the train had left tbe city, the conductor, who is one ot the oldest employes of the road and well known in this city, went into the car where the President and Mr. Halford were conversing.

The Chief Magistrate's face brightened in stantly, and he replied: "Bring him in by all means." The boy, a bright little fellow of abont 11 years, was brought into the private car and duly introduced. The President pnt his arm affectionately abont the boy and, draw ing him to him, said: "Now, Harry, you must sit right down, and ride the rest of the way to "Washington with me." Harry didn't exactly know how to receive this proposition at first, and then, looking np info the President's face, he said inno cently, in his childish treble: "I'd rather ride with the baggage mas ter." The President and Mr. Halford both roared, and as the child left the car the President remarked: "That's the first time since I've been in office tbat a baggage mas- Ia.'. amw.. t-M l.- e a . ; w vvuijaujr uaa uceu preierrcu 10 mine.

Information has been received of one of the fiercest and most destructive forest fires yet reported in Montana. The fire occurred Sun day night In tho St. Regis district, Missoula county, and the Cokeley ranch was made a bar ren waste in less than 50 minutes. Cokeley and the hostess of the ranch mounted horses and barely escaped with their lives to the river, less than a quarter of a mile away, and reached the water after having their clothes nearly all burned from their bodies. They remained in the water over two hours, and even here the heat and smoke were almost suffocating. A Swedish prospector named Anderson tied his horse in the gulch about halt a mile from the Cokeley ranch and went up the hillside to his claim. Both horse and man perlsned in tho fimes- J. C.
