THE PITTSBUBG- DISPATCH, SATURDAY, SEPTF.MTSEK 14, 1889.
IT fv V A:ASTOTABLEYIANDS. w- Choice Butler Advances and Peaches in Better Supply. POULTRY Y.ERY SCARCE AND FIRM. Ocean Products Curtailed lj late Storms on the Coast. AN IMPKOTED DEMAND FOE FLOWEKS OFFICE OF PlTTSBOTG DISPATCH, 1 Fkiday, September 13, 1SS9. j The price of market basket materials is not essentially different from a week ago. There has been a rise in butter, but not suf ficient to make any marked difference in re tail price. The jobbing price of creamery butter is 2 cents per pound greater than last week. A reliable article or hen fruit is not easy to be had, and when it is certain, readily brings outside quotations. Cheese is firm at a shade higher prices than a week ago. Jersey sweet potatoes are scarce on account of storms on the Eastern coast. Irish potatoes are higher in a jobbing way, on account of light receipts, but retail prices are unchanged. The peach supply has improved in the past few days, but quality and condition are below par. Choice peaches find ready sale at outside quotations; but overripe stock, which is in the majority, goes slow. The yield of peaches in the country will fall below the average, and in this section is practically aero. The prospect for the housewives who have failed thus far to lay in supplies of peach butter and preserves crows darker every day. Ocean Frodncta. Late storms on the Eastern coast have had the effect of very greatly curtailing supplies of fish and oysters. Dealers report that they have had all tney can do to meet orders for a day or two, and ex pect to be short Saturday. .Trices of fish for the past month or two in this market have been too low to furnish any profit to dealers. The harvest time of the trade will be later on. At present dealers say they are working for clory, and not boodle. Venders of butter, eggs and poultry report quiet trade, with an uoward drift of prices, poultry is scarce and higher. Game does not yet show up to any considera ble extent. Florists report a slight improvement in trade over last week. The time is close at band when the flower of the conservatory will be in demand. Thus far the outside gardens are aDie to furnish most of the goods wanted in this lice. The irost will be a stimulus to the floral trade. Following are the retail prices of market basket materials, as furnished by leading dealers: Ztleats The best cuts of tenderloin steak range from 20 to 25c, with last figure for very fancy, which are very often no better than the 20c article; sirloin, best cuts, from 18 to 20c; standing rib roast, from 15 to 20c; chuck loast. lOto 12c;best round steaks, 15c; boiling beef, 5 to Ec; sweet breads. 20 to fiOc per pair; beef kidneys. 10c apiece; beef liver. 5c a pound; calf livers. 25c apiece; corned beef from 6 to 10c per pound.

Chicago The bull pressure in wheat to-day was off, and the market reacted quite Bharply. Outside support was not as good as noted yes terday, and local sentiment was generally bear ish in the extreme. Several times during the session concerted drives were made at the market, resulting in moderate reactions from outside figures, and had it not been for the light interior movement in the Northwest, and the bullish dispatches from that part of the country, a substantial break would probably have been witnessed. One report said that "half the wheat in the Red river valley was still in shock and the heavy rains of last night will surely injure It." Subsequent inquiry brought denials of the damage part of this story. The market was only moderately active, and most of the business was between room traders. It was a milking sort of a deal apparently. A prominent local operator was a free seller at and around 79Kc for December. Fluctuations were all within extreme limits of lc and final closings were practically at bottom for the day. Based on yesterday's latest bids, the net loss was c in September and ear, Jic in October and December and lc in May. An active trade was witnessed in com, the feeling being weaker, lower prices being estab lished. Transactions were largely in the more distant futures. May In particular receiving the most attention, and trading in this market was unusually heavy. The weakness was due largely to the fine weather and larger receipts. The local crowd were not disposed to trade heavily in the near months. The market Opened weak at a shade under yesterday's clos ing, and under heavy offerings bv several large houses the market declined Kc was weak and closed with the rear months c, and more distant deliveries J62c lower than yesterday. Oats were traded in moderately. The near futures developed fair strength. There was less pressure to sell and prices were fairly maintained. May receded K?sC and the mar ket closed easy. Very little business was transacted in mess pork, the feeling was firmer and prices higher. A quiet and steady feeling prevailed in lard, and nrices exhibited very little change. A fair trade was reported in short ribs and the feeling was easier. Prices ruled 25c lower, ana the market closed quiet at outside figures. The leading futures ranged as follows-Wheat-No. 2.

Why Brokers Eefuse to Tell Secrets of Their Business. the BUILDING AND LOAN SOCIETIES. A Suggestion to Assist the Weak Ones by Forming a Sort of Trust. A WHACK AT CONNEIiLSYILLB COEE "WTiile there are no great movements go ing on in local stocks, and no change in the condition of any to affect values, there is a good deal of business transacted in a qniel way that would interest the pnblic, and perhaps help the market, if it could be got at, but it can't. Hunting for pearls in a shipload of oysters wonld -be as easy a task as to get news from the aveiage broker. Still, ie is less to blame than his clients, and only follows instructions when he re fuses to talk. One of them bit the nail sqnarelr on the head yesterday when he said: "The sight of a newspaper man shnts mo up like a sensitive plant. I should like to tell you all I know about stocks, but dare not. My customers would kick." Some of the local building and loan associa tions have more calls for money than they have on hand; and to obviate the difficulty it has been suggested that every association ap point a delegate for the purpose of forming an exchange, or in the language of the times, a trust. They would elect one competent man to be manager and have charge of all the corre spondence between the diC rent organizations. This central office would keep a complete ac count of the doings of all the societies, and would know what number of them are making forced loans, and which have a call for more money than is on hand. Those making forced loans would revert their funds through tne central office to those wanting money, and would thus equalize the business of the associa tions and make it possible for an association with small funds on hand to give as large loans as an association with more capital and a bet ter business status. Opinion as to the practica bility of the proposed departure is considerably mixed, some favoring it, while others think it would be illegal. The proposition will be sub mitted to a prominent attorney before definite action is taken. m The largest mortgage recorded yesterday was for $26,250, placed with the Safe Deposit Com pany by John C. Reilly. It was purchase money. There were 21 others, ranging in amount from $6,000 to S200. It has been a quiet week in this line of business. A short time since representatives of the dif ferent firms about Fairmont, W. Va., who make coke were in Wheeling, and had several cars of the product of their mines and ovens shipped to the different blast furnaces and foundries in that section. They asked that the coke be given a fair trial alongside the Con nellsville article, which these concerns have been using, the intention being to discover whether or not coke made from the splendid coking coal found In that part of West Virginia is equal to the Connellsville coke. The West Virginia product was tried, and, according to report, found to be equal to, and in some cases superior to, the Connellsville coke But the great detriment to using it in that section is the freight charges, which not only eat up the profits that the coke manufacturers must have, but increase the price of the article to such an extent .as to render it impossible for it to com pete with the Connellsville coke. Since that time these gentlemen, working in connection with a number of Wheeling manufacturers, have succeeded in obtaining promises that coko snail be carried from Fairmont at such rates as will make it possible for the coke of that sec tion to enter into competition with the Con nellsville article The Pleasant Valley Railroad Company which recently obtained a controlling interest in the Band street bridge, will soon advertise for pro posals for a new one, to cost about $150,000. It will have 45-foot spans, two foot ways and four tracks. W W Concerning the iron situation the American Manufacturer says: "While there are some conditions in 18S9 that are similar to those of 1879, there are; others that are not There has not ana it is most earnestly hoped that there will not be any such rapid or as great ad vances as in 1879. The selling price has not yet reached the card price There is no prospect that it will immediately. The situation in the country is prosperous, and it is well nigh inev itable that there will be still further advances, but whatever the pressure from whatever sonrces it may be assumed that the folly of 1879-S0 will not be repeated." The work on the extension of the old Pitts burg and Connellsville road, which extension will be called the Oakland and State Lino Rail road, is progressing rapidly. The new road will run from Confluence to Deer Park and eventually to Oakland. With its connections it will make a new Eastern outlet for the ship ment of coal and lumber from West Virginia. FEATUEES OF LOCAL STOCKS. A Raid on Philadelphia Gn Which Didn't Amount to .llucli. Business at the Stock Exchange yesterday was a little better than the average of the past month or two, but was still far below the mark of its high calling. Sales on call were 15 shares of Euterprlse Savings Bank at 55, an advance; 10 Central Traction at 3 a slight concession; 50 Wheeling Gas at 30, a fractional loss; 70 Phil adelphia Gas at 31, and 120 at 37. La Noria was weak and neglected, but Yankee Girl was in light demand at 4, and Luster at 10. The feature ol the day was a small raid on Philadelphia Gas in the afternoon, dunnw which it broke to 37, but the offerings at tha"t figure were light, and it closed with better bid. Electric and the tractions were steady, as was about everything elseon the boird. There was nothing important in news or gossip. mokxing. Hid. Asked. Pltm. Pet.S.ftM. Kx.. 450 475 AFTICKNOOX. Bid.

DOLLAR OIL AGAIK. The Coveted Mark Touched, bnt Staying Qualities Found Wanting. There was a tairly good oil market yesterday. It opened rather bearish, but later on New York and Pittsburg turned buyers, running up the price from 9Sc, the initial figure, to SI, the highest. At this point the prospect was good for a further advance, put anxiety to realize was too great and a recession occurred, the final quotation being 99c. Sproul & Lawrence were the principal buyers here. The feeling at the close wis rather mixed, but firm ness seemed to predominate. A. writer in the Oil, Paint and Drug Re porter, who has apparently had some experi ence in the oil field and in the gold fields of California during the excitement of '49, com pares the present cry of exhausted territory In the oil region to that raised by the seekers after gold, that "the mines are all dug out." He tells of the reckless baste and waste which prevailed among the gold miners at that time, and then he goes on to show that history re peated itself in the feverish scramble after the oleaginous product. Crude machinery was used and the virtuelof "shooting" was unknown; operators hurried from one field to another at the least show of diminution of the output, de serted wells were left unplugged, allowing great volumes of water to pour in from the surfaco and Interior, and altogether the field was hastily skimmed over without' a thought of what results might be obtained by persevering and intelligent work. As a remedy the same writer thinks that a concerted effort or a combination of operators, or better still, an organized company with cap ital that would seenre for its field a wide area of oil territory, would doubtless find a rich re muneration in adopting some heroic measures to exhanst this underlying volnme of water which has carelessly been allowed to flow in, and which would most assuredly give room and place for the re-entrance of both oil and gas in these once productive sections. So that while the figures show a decline in production of some 7,000,000 barrels from 1836 to 1SSS, it gives no reason for the dark prognostications that seem to Impress the minds of some scientists and statisticians. Geologist Orton in a recent letter to the Para gon Refining Company, of Toledo. O., gives it as his opinion that Lima oil may be refined to equal that from the Pennsylvania product. In regard to the elimination of sulphur ho says: "1 have submitted the sample of the oil that I took from your bleachers to the chemist of the Geological Survey, Prof. N. W. Lord, for chemical examination in regard to a single ele ment, viz, the sulphur. Prof. Lord has given me the results within the last few davsand they are very satisfactory. He reports the sul phur of the Trenton limestone oil practically eliminated by your treatment. There is no more than In the best Pennsylvania oil." Features of the Market. Corrected dally by John M.

Railroad Sunres Weak at tho Opening, Bnt Firm Up Lnter and Close With In significant Changes The Trusts Take a Back Seat North ern Pacific Gives Way. New York, September 13. The stock mar ket to-day was comparatively dull, with a gen eral drooping tendency during the forenoon, but a firmer feeling later on, while the fluctua tions in most of the list were on an equally limited scale, and the final changes, except in rare instances, were entirely insignificant. The news of the morning, especially that from the West, was of an unfavorable character, and there was a marked indisposition to trade shown, which, considering the recent animation in the market, had a tendency to induce re alization, and the bears worked the fear of a bid bank statement to-morrow and the expec titinti of the resumption of specie exports for all they were worth. Ti.ero was a marked lack of support to the list, and, while London was a buyer again, the foreign operations were not of sufficient mag nitude to have any material effect upon the course of prices. The London buying was most marked in Union Pacific, and served to keep that stock firm when the remainder of the list was dropping. First pnees this morning were steady as compared with last evening's figures, but the market was dull and soon developed a dropping tendency. The losses sustained, how ever, were insignificant, except in Missouri Pacific, which dropped 1 per cent during the forenoon, while the losses in most of the others were recovered before noon. Some of the specialties exhibited marked strength, among which Toledo and Ohio Cen tral was most conspicuous, the common scor ing a net advance of 6 per cent from its last recorded sale and tho prelerred 4. Ihe bears, however, in searching for vulnerable spots lit upon Northern Pacific common, and it was knocked down to 32, against Zi last evening. Tue movement was believed to be an effort to cover stock sold some time ago, but the stock did not recover. 1 The general market sym pathized in a listless sort of way, and the deal ings became almost stagnant until the last hour, when brisk buying of "Louisville and Nashville 'sent that stock up nearly IK per cent ana luruea ,iue course oi prices In ine general list once more in the upward direction. The dealmrswere also enlivened bvarenewal of speculation inThosnlx mining stock, and on large transactions it was lumped up from 86 to 45. The trusts were dull and without featnre throughout the day. The" market finally closed dull but firm, generally at insignificant changes from last evening's figures, though Northern Pactflo Is down 1 and Jersey Central L while Louisville and Nashville Is up 1 per cent. Railroad bonds were in close sympathy with shares to-day, and were dnll with insignificant fluctuations, though there was a geaeral firm tone throughout most of the day.leaving prices in most instances slightly hieher than yester day. The sales were $1,054,000. of which the Rock Island 5s figured for $150,000 and the Fort Worth and Denver firsts for $133,000. , The following table snows tne prices oractlve stocks on the New York Stock Exchange yester day.

The woman then discovered the trick, bnt it was too late to save herself. She soon be came desperately ill, and at last accounts her death was regarded ns certain. She was suffering excruciating agony and spitting qd blood and large nieces of flesh.

On "Wall street Missouri Pacific has just enjoyed .. spurt in connection with the declaration of the usual quarterly dividend 0 1 per cent. Unofficial advices are that the earnings of the company are improving as compared with those of last year. Each statements ar not likely to attract buyers to the stock, certainly not investors, for the reason thai the company is one of the few large systems that withholds from the pnblic the figures of its operations until long after the close of its fiscal year. . It is. entirely probable that Mr. Gould will utilize the present improvement in the security market to close out his interest ia the Missouri Pacific Railroad Company. He has learned a little late in life that the satisfaction of absolutely controlling a cor poration is more than offset by the re sponsibilities that are inseparable from snch a control. Consequently be is intent upon getting out of a situation that is pre cisely similar to the one that Mr. Villard, ia his enthusiasm, is desirous of getting into.
