w- Choice Butler Advances and Peaches
in Better Supply.
Ocean Products Curtailed lj late Storms
on the Coast.
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
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

Bulls In the Wheat Pit Get a Black Bye
Narrow Escape From a Bad Break
Corn DIoves Down Out and
Hob Prodncta Featureless.
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
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

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,

Brokers Eefuse to Tell
Secrets of Their Business.
A Suggestion to Assist the Weak Ones by
Forming a Sort of Trust.
"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.
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
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.
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.

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."

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. ,

A fair and steady volume of orders reach the

He Gives Ills, Wife Concentrnted Lye and
Will Probably bo Lynched.
Columbia, S. C, September 13. Eli
Boatwright, a farmer of Catleton county, is
in jail for attempting to murder his wife,
who is yet a mere gill. She was ill and he
gave her a dose of concentrated lye. Some
neighbors coming in soon after, gave her an
emetic, which relieved her. Upon discover
ing this, Boatwright mixed some more of
the lye with a dose of medicine prescribed
by the attending physician and repeated the
mixture alter a short interval.
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. Indig
nation against Boatwright is intense, and it,
is more than probable that he will be taken-

New York, September 13. 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.
