EEATUKES OF TRADE. A'South Fayette Township Farmer's Views of the Harvests. WHEAT AND fl AYCROP AT THE BEST How Dairy Farming Pays Better Than the Oia-Time Methods. WEEFS TCORK AT THE LIBERTI TAEDS Office of Pittsburg Dispatch.1 Thursday, September 26. 1SS9. i Joseph Hickman, a thrifty farmer trom the vicinity of Bridgeville, who is serving his co-jntry as juryman in the Criminal Court this week, gives his views as to the agricultural situation in his section as fol lows: "In more than 20 years' experience I do not know that the wheat, oats and hay crops were ever better in my neighborhood. 1 met a farmer the other day from the neigh borhood of Venice who told me his wheat crop this season would reach 46 bushels to the acre. This.or course, is exceptional, but the average through the southern part of Alle gheny county and Washington county will not bo far from 20 bushels to the acre, and this will be almost double last year's yield. As to the oats crop, the yield has been 40 to 50 bushels to the acre in my section, which is a very high average. We consider 50 to 60 bushels of oats to the acre an extra good crop. Very Little Fruit. "Aside from apples we have very iittle fruit this summer. The apple crop is a fair average, but not up to last j ear, which was an extra sea son. In my neighborhood the farmers of late years have been turning their attention to a great extent to the milk business. The whole tannine business has been revolutionized in South Fayette township in my time. Sheep and CAttln raisin- liavp. lieen found to be unnrofita- ble in recent years lor small fanners. Tho farmer who has 15 or 20 milk cow s has found a ready sale for his product in Pittsburg, and at the same time can keen his land in good condi tion from the manure. There has been of late a disposition to return to sheen raisins in inv neighborhood; but the methods of fanners of 20 years aco would furnish very scant pickings now. One of mv neishoors ships to Pittsburg markets in the neighborhood of 50 callous ol milk daily. The summer price is 10c per gallon and the winter price 16c. In this way he can turn his farm products daily into cash, and is able to keep his farm in lirst-class condition." Liberty Live Stock. The live stock situation is not materially changed since our last report, with the excep tion of boss, which advanced 10 to 15c yester- (lir Thp hnr-snnnlr has not been pnnat fn the demand all this week. The same is true of I sheep and lambs. Anything choice in either line finds ready customers at outside rates. Nice tidy butcher cattle are also in good de mand. As we are passing through an era of low prices, low grade stuff is at a discount. East Liberty stockmen report that export cattle coming to this market of late are not as a rnte up to standard. Export cattle have sold better in Chicaco than here of late, for the reason that the offerings at the former place are better selected stock. Those coming: to our markets are brought down m grade by the presence of a few inferior cattle m a load of exports. There has been this week some im provement in this respect over last week. But there is large room for further improvement on the part of shippers. Following is the week's report of Transactions at Liberty Yards! HECEIITS. CATTLE BOGS. SHEET Thro'. I Local.

Chicago, September 20. A number of prominent Iaaies of this city have formed an association and have hired a lawyer to pros ecute the gamblers of the city tinder the State law. The work was begun to-dav with the arrest of John Morris, the proprie-j xoroi a gamDimg uouse on Clark street. The attorney for the ladies says that there is every reason to believe that the gamblers will very soon become frightened. The State law against gambling is very severe. It provides that a person convicted the first time of the offense of running a gambling house or renting property to be occunied by a gambling house shall be fined 8100, and that on second conviction the fine shall not be less than 5500 aud the additional penalty of six months jn the county jail, and on the third' conviction that the penalty shall be 5500 fine and one yearin the penitentiary. The ladies, whose names, except that of Mrs. "Van Ardet, are not made public, in tend to push the cases to the full extent of the law. They are taking steps to convict, not only the gamblers themselves, but atao the men who own the buildings where gam bling houses are conducted. BeechaM's Pills cure sick headache.

A Strone Bull Feeling in ihe Wlient Fit Heavy Trading Prices Show Gains at the Close Corn and Oats Weak. Chicago-As intariably happens on a genuine hull market for wheat, news from evcrj where was of a stimulating charac ter. Heavy trading was witnessed in all of the leading futures to day, and outside domestic markets averaged almost as strong as our own, it proved to be no difficult matter for local bulls to keep speculative values on the up grade. In spite olthe heavy realizing sales the market was bullish and big and broad. As large outside buying orders were received In the minds of conservative operators, there lingered a suspicion that there might, after all be some manipulation in the deal. A local house with large Eastern and foreign clientage sold nearly 2,000,000 bushels of long wheat early, and later in the day bought almost as much on orders mainly from outside. Early cables to the board were firm for both spot and futures, and late, or closing ones,.called Cali fornia spot wheat and all futures Kd higher. Summed up , to-day's transactions were the largest so far on the crop. Based on yesterday s closings, the net gain for the day was 2c In Sep tember, ljc in October, December and May, and lc in year. Corn was fairly active and weaker, trans actions being at a lower range of prices. The market opened at jcsterda's closing prices, was easy, offerings being large, a prominent local trader selling large qnantuies of October and May, which filled up the local crowd. When tho estimates for to-morrow camo in placing the receipts at 595 cars the local crowd sold freely, and the market ruled weak and de clined. Final quotations were Jc lower than yesterday. A quiet and easy feeling prevailed In oats. The near futures were sold by longs who have become tired out and wanted to unload, and prices receded c Only a fair trade was reported in pork. Prices ruled 510c early, but settled back again to medium figures and closed steady. Trading was only fair and the feeling steadier in lard. Prices exhibited little change, except ing for the near deliveries, which ruled 25c higber. Only a fair business reported in short ribs. Prices exhibited very Iittle change.

Full List of New National Banks Author ized to Begin Business. NEW ORGANIZATION TO HANDLE KEALTT The folly of the man who cut his nose off to spite his face is frequently paralleled in business affairs. Natural gas has done more to increase and strengthen Pittsburg indus tries, and spread her fame abroad, than any thing else, and to attempt to weaken its im portance for stock-jobbing purposes, or from any other motive, is a wrong to one of the vital interests of the city. Said a prominent business man yesterday: "I am surprised at the depression of natural gas stocks. I think it spnngs from jealousy as much as anything else. There seems to be a cliqne here a coterie of selfish people who want to enjoy all the benefit of natural gas by keeping everybody else ouU For this purpose they coiyoct and circulate stories of shortage in snpply, wells giving out, loss of business to the companies, and anything and everything else to create an impression at home and abroad that the supply is giving out. Of course these stories have more or less weight with investors, who too often accept street talk for gospel truth, and the consequence is that the stock suffers. What was Pittsburg before she com menced using natural gasT What Is she now? A blind man can see the change. It lias attracted millions of outside capital, and caused the greatest industrial expansion ever known here. To depreciate an interest that has done'so much for the city shows a lamentable lack of public spirit. "There has been a scarcity of gas for a week or two, but this is always the case at the begin ning of winter. It results, not from a decrease in supply at tho wells, but from changes neces sary to meet the requirements of cold weather. The scarcity Is not so great as it was last year or the year before. Indeed, in view of the fact that the Philadelphia Company has taken on 2,000 additional houses tbis season, and that the Iron mills are consuming twice the usual quan tity, it is remarkable-that the supply has held out so well. The autumn changes to meet the Increased service will soon be finished, when every consumer of natural gas will be abund antly supplied. The wells are all right, and the service will be all right. I have no patience with people who cry down the very thing that has given Pittsburg the greatest boom she has ever experienced."

The iron market has developedno reactionary features during the past ueek. The demand continues active, and the mills are running full. Bar iron has advanced in sympathy with pig, and is held at the $1 80 rate. Metal is firm at $16. This is an advance of about $2 per ton within the last eight weeks. The building boom all over the country has stimulated the demand for nails, and they are firmly held on a 2 25 ba sis for wire and $2 for cut. The proposed syndi cate has fallen through. The Pittsburg Land and Bnilding Company is a new organization for handling real estate. Its chief object is to acquire title to land, erect buildings thereon, and sell them on reasonable terms to people whose means do not permit them to become all at once proprietors. Tbe officers aie: President. Mr. C. P. Ford, Presi dent of Select Council; Vice President, Mr. W. H. House, of the City Attorney's rffiee; Secre tary and Treasurer, Prof. C. B. Wood, of tbe Pittsburg High School; Attorney, S. A. John ston, Esq.; Managers, Messrs. Straub 4 Morris. These names of prominent citizens will com mend the enterprise to the confidence ot the community. The present capital stock of the company Is $50,000, but it is proposed to in crease it to 500,000. When sufficient stock has been subscribed, the present Board of Direct ors will resign and a new one be selected. From a circular just issued by the company, tho f oUowing is quoted: The advantages arising from tbe aggregation of capital, in tbe bands of an incorporated company, used for this purpose are obvious. It costs much more, proportionately, to pur chase a single lot and erect a single building, than it does to buy a block of lots and erect a number of buildings under one contract. Tbe saving in this respect is, in itself, a good profit on the capital invested. Blocks of comfortable small dwellings can bo erected and sold to those who wish to buy homes at less price than they can buy and build for themselves. A BOOM" IS STOCKS. Best Day's Trnd In c for 3Iany Bloons Rtronff and Weak Spots. Yesterday was a red-letter day at the Stock Exchange. The proceedings were in the nature ot a revival meeting. Captain Barbour was happy. The brokers were pretty well loaded up with orders, aud they didn't allow files to settle on thm. Bidding was lively, and sales were so disproportionate to the usual run as to render the word "immense" not out of place as a descriptive epithet. The transactions footed up 1,6S0 shares, of which La Noria contributed 875. Central Traction was a lively feature. It opened at 32, and. on heavy realizing, was forced down to 31 It was fractionally stronger in tbe afternoon on light offerings.

The oil market was steady at the opening yes terday, but without significant features. The first sale was at 99, from which the price ad vanced to 99c declined to 98c, rallied and closed firm at 99'ic almost the best figure of the day. McKelvey was the principal buyer here. New York and Oil City were light sell ers. There was no outside interest, trading be ing entirely professional. The principal bear ish influence was the Jefferson Center well about due. While almost everybody is bullish, one of the Srincipa obstacles in tho way of a revival of usiness is lack of a leader to set the pace and excite enthusiasm. But in tbe present condi tion of the market, and in the face of a famine of certificates, operators are afraid to go long or short, and tbe result is that both side;, look ing to safety, are compelled to go slow and take things as they come. There is a very small opening for-a "plunger." v Features of the Market. Corrected daily by John M. OaEley & Co., 45 Sixth street, members of the Pittsburg Petro leum Exchange.

The stock market to-day showed little or no change from the dullness of the past two weeks asfar as the general list is concerned, and although the tone of the dealings was undoubtedly strong the fluctuations were as small as ever, and the realizations of the last bonr wiped out many of the gains made in the early portion of the day. The London buying of Union Pacific in particular, St Paul, Louisville, Western Union and specialties was the feature of the day's operations, but the fact that the 2 o'clock prices in London were not above our close made some suspicion that the buying orders emanated from this side. Union Pacific at tracted the lion's share of the attentiop, and while the extreme rise in tbe stock was only IK per cent, it was accompanied by an assort ment of rumors, among which an alliance with tbe Manitoba, the purchase of the Ft. Worth and Denver, and a new pool in the stock were most conspicuous, while the handsome increase in the earnings undoubtedly had a positive in fluence. , Louisville and Nashville was largely traded in.but the extreme fluctuation in tbe stock was ony pec cent, and its final change is insig nificant. Western Union became a prime favorite in the afternoon.and the business done in it far exceeded anything done in it for a long time. Lake Shore also at tbe same time awoke from its lethargy, and with Denver, 'Texas and Ft, Worth, was a feature in the forenoon, and reached the highest price yet attained, after which i became doll and held steady at close to its best figure. Among the inactive shares there were marked movements in Short Line, Manhattan and some others, but Tennessee Coal was a weak spot after the first advance of lii to 55. The coal stocks were again promi nent for strength, and Jersey Central and Dela ware and Hudson continued their upward march. The trusts were dull aud fairly well held until lateJn the day, when Sugar made another dip, thepress lire being specially severe, and a drop of 2 per cent resulted, though the others were quiet and steady throughout. The- irregulanty of the opening figures was succeeded by strength all along the line, and, the foreign purchases becoming very marked, the shorts were induced to cover some of their lines, which kept tho market slowly advancing for the greater portion of the day. Realiza tions on the day's rise began toward delivery hour, but while there was some recession from the best figures, the market closed firm and generally at fractional advances over first prices. The final declines are few In number and insignificant in extent, while Short Line is up 2; Jersey Central, IK; Union Pacific and Western Union, each l'i; Northwestern, Dela ware and Hudson, and Denver, Texas and Fort Worth, each 1J; Big Four, Chicago Gas and Manhattan, each 1 per cent. The only impor tant decline was Sugar, 2J. In the railroad bond market to-day the Fort Worth and Denver firsts figured for $117,000, while the total sales of all issnes were only $683,000, and the fluctuations and interest In tbe dealings were on an equally limited scale. There were a few marked changes, mostly ad vances, but the general run wore limited to tbe smallest fractions.

The principal streets in Wilkfnsburg are be ing sewered. The approach of cold weather is causing builders to hustle. Broker McKee was hungry' for cheap Wheeling, but conldn't get a taste. Two Pittsburg gentlemen 'who put $20 on pork about two months ago have raked in $300 as profit. Mining stocks are risky. Some time ago a Pittsburg broker bought a lot for $6. for which he couldn't get 6 cents now. The decline in Sugar Trust shares is attrlb uted to the fact that the corporation is loaded up with high-priced raw sugar. La Noma went off like hot cakes. It was evi dent somebody wanted ber. Well, she may be a better girl than some people think. The Exposition has been of great benefit to Pittsburg from a financial point of view. Mer chants wish it wonld last all winter. These was a larger attendance at the Stock Exchange than usual yesterday, and brokers showed more disposition to get down to busi ness. NO POLICE INTERFERENCE. The Chlcnjto Anorcbista Will be Allowed to PeaccnbiV Celebrate. Chicago, September 26. In response to a question as to whether the Anarchists of the city will be allowed to parade on. No vember 11, the anniversary of the execution oi the five Haymarket leaders, Superintend ent Hnbbard" said to-day: "That all de pends upon how they propose to parade. If they want to carry red flags and transparen cies, with mottoes reflecting upon law and order, the permit will not be granted. If they act like gentlemen, there is no reason why they shonld not have processions just as anv other class of men might. So long as they are orderly there will be no inter- I lerence with them." "And as to a public meetlne?" "Public meetings in halls do not require Permits. Public out-door meetings 'will not be allowed. There will be no interference with the meetings unless they become riot ous oil disorderly. However, there will be plentiofpolice,protection in case there is any difficulty. In general, there will be no interference," so long as the 'Beds' behave tnemseftres." DOMESTIC MARKETS. Ample Snpply" of PotatoesCheese Higher-Butter Active. CANNED FRUITS TENDING UPWARD.

The supply of potatoes is now fully equal to demand. Farmers who have been otherwise engaged for a few weeks .past are now gather ing potatoes, tempted by the advance in prices. Carload lots are begging for customers to-day at $1 50 per barrel and under. There is no im mediate prospect of a potato famine. Apples grow firmer every day. Sweet potatoes are easy. Eggs are firm. The .upward drift of cheese has resulted in an advance, as an inspec tion of our Quotations will disclose. The ad vance In creamery butter has been, fully sus tained by events.

Groceries. The situation varies little from that as re ported yesterday. The movement is active. Business has seldom been as lively in grocery lines as it has been since the beginning of Sep tember. Canned fruits show an upward drift. Coffee options, under speculative Influences, keep seesawing, but packages are unchanged. The effect of trusts is to force the consumer to. pay about 3c per pound more for his sugar than he would otherwise pay. The few are enriched at tb e expense of the many by th"e Sugar Trust.
