WEEFS WOEK AT THE LIBERTY YARDS Office of Pittsburg dispatch. 1 TnuESDAT, October 3. 1SS9. J A Clinton storekeeper, who deals exten sively in country produce of all kind's, reports the trade situation for the western portion of Allegheny county, and the Pan handle, as follows: "Poultry has not been as scarce for many years through the section for 50 miles west ol Pittsburg. "We are not able to supply demands of trade in this line. Choice butter is also becoming scarce, and prices are 10 to 15c a pound better than they were a month ago. "We hare no trouble selling all the good butter obtainable at 25c per pound, and could sell much more than bc can cc t. Good eggs that can be warranted, readily brine 21 cents per dozen in a wholesale way." "Fruit of all kinds is in scant supply. Plums are a total failure. Ike apple crop will scarcely be one-half that of last year. Grapes, too, are little more than half a crop Potatoes gave good promise in the early part of the season; but Do Not Show Good Keeping qualities, and in Clinton they are now selling readily at 45 to 50 cents per bushel, while a year ago they were a drug at little more than half this price. Last fall at this time it was hard to give away apples. Now they are picked up quickly at 75 cents per bushel." The interview with the Clinton merchant de veloped the fact that the year ISsS was a year of abundance, when all products of field and garden w&nt begging for buyers, ana that this season the situation is entirely reversed. As an offset to the shortage of rruits and veg etables in this section, we have large wneat, oats and hav crop this season which was never excelled in Western Pennswvania as to quan tity and quality. The wet summer, which in terfered with the keeping quality of potatoes, vas all the while nourishing the cereal and hay crop, and the result is seen in the largest yield on record in thee lines. We cannot have all we want, and a prolific yield of wheat, oats and hay is better than large crops of fruit and veg etables so far as public neeus are concerned. Live StocL. Receipts of hogs at Chicago to-day were 23,000 head, and prices are off 15c per cwt. The range of prices there, as furnished by wire to one of our leading packers this morning, was S3 40 4 35. The average weight of hogs received at Chicago during September was 2CS pounds. This average was above any previons fall month, and only one winter month in the past pieht ears has exceeded this average. At East Liberty the hog market showed a disposi tion to seek a low er level this moraine, a fact explained by the situation at the Western metropolis. Advices from the West indicate a lowering tendency in provision markets. The weak factor of trade is October pork. Pickled hams are the strong factor. Ham and lard are fairly stead. The heavy run of low-grade cattle at East Liberty this week demoralized the markets. A large quantitr of poor stock was sold at prices which must have entailed los on some parties. Thp depreciation since Monday, in some cases, amounted to 40c per cwt., and not 40 per cent., as the types made this column say in to-day's Dispatch. Prime beeves held their own this week as compared with last week. The same is true as regards light, tidy butcher ing stock. But medium and low-grade cattle, being in exceslve supply here, have been becging for buj ers and maritets are slow for thi class at a reduction of 25c to 40c per cwt. Sheep and lambs have also been drifting downward, and to-day it seems that hogs have joined in the movement towards a lower level. Transactions at East Liberty.

October a Business was again fair with the drygoods jobbers Arrivals are mostly small buyers from nearbvsections but they take oft a considerable quantity of goods Stocks are running low, leaving little material for special movements. With agents the de mand was moderate for current wants Dress goods were the most active article, and are well sold up. Cotton goods are largely sold ahead, and deliveries of popular staples will continue up to the movement for next season leaving few accumulationsfor low-priced deals If any.

Early Cobles Inspire Confidence In the Wheat Fir, Bat Improvement Falls to Hold Lending Futures Sell Off at the Close. Chicago There was a dull, "local scalping market for wheat to-day, and during most of the session it was an extremely narrow one. Early cables reported foreign markets as firm and tending up, which for a time Infused a lit tle bullishness into the deal here Prices near ly worked up JJ Jgc in fact above yesterday's closings December touching Sa But the improvements did not hold, and toward the close the market was sustained only by muscu lar force. There was very little news afloat of a character to affect wheat values Commission houses with Northwestern con nections, sold some May wheat here but for the most part business was of a light, local character, there being a generally conservative feeling and a leaning toward the bear side. In side prices of the day were touched during the lat 15 minutes of the session. December sold off to Slc The latest quotations were iKc under those of yesterday for the leadicg lu tures A fair degree of activity was manifested in the corn market, and the feeling developed was easier and steady. There were no new features of conseauence develoDed. and influ ences on the market were mainly of a local character. There was a rumor of a cut of 5c by one of the Western roads, and this may have bad a tendency to increase offerings The mar ket opened at about yesterday's closine prices was easy and sold off under free offerings hi 9yC, rallied Jc ruled easier and closed y6 Jic lower than yesterday. In oats there was a moderate business in Jlay, hut in other deliveries very little trans pired. The feeling early was firm, but later became n eak and prices receded slightly. The market closed quiet, Tradinc in pork was only moderate, and chiefly in November and January contracts October was quiet, with a few sales at irregu lar prices Other deliveries were 5"Kc lower ea'ly, but rallied again 25c, and closed com paratively steady. The lard market was quiet and rather dull early, with light trading at 2c decline. Later the feeling was steadier and the decline was recovered.

Mayor Shakespeare has instructed the Chief of Police to close all gambling saloons, turf exchanges, pool and high ball poker rooms to-night. The Mayor has been try ing for some time past to get the Council to take some definite action in regard to trambliDg, he himself favoring the license system, which he inaugurated when Mayor eight years ago. The Council would not consent to this however, and at its late meeting ordered him to strictly enforce the anti-gambling law, as a Dumber of com plaints have lately been made that minors were allowed to gamble, especially at the Turl Exchange and nool rooms. As all the gambling establishments are well known, there will be no difficulty in closing them. The Mayor has submitted to the District Attorney the question whether bookmaking is gambling or not. If an affirmative answer is received, he will pre vent any bookmaking afthe winter races Proffrrmc.

Carpentry Considered in its Applica tion to Modern Buildings. THE WIELDEE OP SAW AKD PLANE In the Dual Character of Architect and Builder, Shining in Both. PITTSBUKG A CENTER OF KEW IDEAS Conspicuous among the guilds or trades existing in Pittsburg is that of carpentry. It is not only the oldest, dating back to the beginning of the settlement of the "Forks of the Ohio," about 1764, but, next to the iron guild, the most powerful, numerically, and probably the best organized. Individually and collectively, .the members of this fra ternity stand high in their profession. They are originators ot ideas and methods, not servile followers of antiquated systems Under their intelligent treatment, Pittsburg is last becoming one of the handsomest cities in the Union. The prominence and importance of the wood worker's art has made the carpenter the lead ing mechanic upon modern buildings. The carpenter is ordinarily the virtual, if not the nominal, superintendent of the building upon which ho is engaged. Accordingly he is re quired to know all the peculiarities of the various trades which enter into the construc tion of a building. He must be familiar not only with his own trade, bat he must likewise know very much about that of the mason, the bricklayer, the iron worker, the cornice maeer, the plumber, etc If a building is to be erected without the assistance of an architect, the car penter is the first mechanic consulted, and to him is given the general direction of the under taking. Therefore the carpenter in reality be comes the builder, and so well recognized is this that the two terms carpenter and builder are used almost synonymously. m He is very frequently called upon to lay off the ground upon which a building is to be erected. It is often the carpenter who pro nounces the foundations satisfactory or other wise before the superstructure is commenced. It is the carpenter who sees that the floor beams are placed exactly right. It is the car penter who prepares the centers for the brick layer and the mason, and sees that their re spective parts of the building are left in proper condition. It is the carpenter, in the wording of many specifications who must supply whatever is necessary to the completion of the buildiner, and which has not been included in any of the other trades If any new featnre of work is introduced in a bnilding ror which there is not a special con tractor, it ordinarily falls to the carpenter's lot. Whatever shortcomings there may be in the plans whatever errors have been made by the architect it becomes the duty of the car penter to overcome and make compensation for. It is necessary for the carpenter to know everything about a bnilding from beginning to end, and the more thorough and practical his knowledge, the more rapid his advancement and the wider bis field of operations always be comes There are several distinct stages in the car penter's career First, the apprentice and helper; then the common mechanic working under a foreman; next he becomes foreman, directiLg workmen under him. and has the superintendency of the building upon which he is engaged. From this he easily steps into bus iness on his own account and takes contracts for the erection of buildings Not unfrequently he combines a theoretical knowledge of architecture with his practical experience as a builder, and enters upon a pro fessional career with decided chances of suc cess The rate of his advancement from stage to stage depends largely upon the natural ability of the man, his care in studying the various parts of his trade, and close attention to business Of coursesometbingisattributable to opportunities, but, all things being equal, tbat man who is the most earnest in acquiring knowledge concerning his trade who secures a fund of information from which he can answer almost any question that may come up in his daily work, and who provides ready means for overcoming any unusual difficulties that may arise, is likely to make the most rapid advance ment. Carpentry pure and simple may be defined as the art of combining pieces of timber for the support of any considerable weight or pressure The theory of carpentry depends upon two distinct branches of mechanical science. The carpenter gives his timbers their form by the principles of geometry, and he adjusts the stress and strain, so as to preserve them in their original shape, by the laws of mechanics In the wide range of application of these branches of science the carpenter finds ample fields for the exercise of his best powers; his familiarity with them forms the foundation of his usefulness and in a measure, aside from the relative Importance attaching to his trade, gives him an advantage over other mechanics DDLL AKD WEAK. Local Securities Still Depressed PhiladeU phia Gas Breaks the Record. Stocks were dull and weak yesterday. The sales were 251 shares of which Central and Citizens' Tractions furnished 120. There were very few orders and they were on the bear side. The market is still without sufficient outside support to justify hopes of a speedy revival. Philadelphia gas was forced down to 34J on sales of CO shares This is tbe lowest point it has ever reached. The highest was about 56, about three years ago. The decline was caused by pressure to sell small lots, holders having wearied of carrying theirs. Large lots coulu have been marketed at 35 at least. It was stated semi-officially that there will be no change in the dividend. All tbe natural gas stocks were dull and weak. The laree passenger business of the Pittsburg Traction Company iast year was not renectea in the price of tbe stock. It was mild at 4SJ, with no bidders Unfounded fears of another assessment continued to hang over Central. It sold down to 3L and was in light demand at that Citizens' Traction was also weaker. It is said, in explanation, that expenses are out of proportion to the earnings even with the help of the Exposition. A statement of the facts would be a judicious move on tbe part of both companies. There were no particularly bright spots in tbe market, weakness and dullness be ing the prevailing features. Bids offers and sales were: morning, afternoon. mo. ASkea. Jiia. Asted Diamond Nat.

PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, BIG EXCHANGES. OctoberSettlements Causing n Lively Move ment In the Money Market. October settlement's now well along, con tinue to cause a brisk movement in the local money market. The exchanges Saturday rose to $3,028,510 14 and the balances to S503.310 41 the largest of the year. The bulk of the dis bursements for interest and dividends is being deposited in the banks The most of it will find Its way into tho various business channels during the present month. Without an exception, the financiers inquired of vesterdav reDorted monevabundant, with no chanire in rates, only a little hardening. Un- like Chicago, Pittsburg has a surplus amount ing probably to J15.000.000. tjhis is a sufficient guarantee against local stringency, unless the Eastern flurry should become chronic, of which there Is not even the shadow of a proba bility. Indeed the pressure Is already easing up, and it will disappear altogether ir a short time, when the large amounts of money dis tributed through the South and West begin to return to Wall street. In furiber explanation of the stringency In New York, a cashier remarked yesterday : 'J see nothing strange in it. It would happen if there were twice the amount of money In circu lation tbat there is It was gotten up purely and simply to bear the stock m vket. There is a clique of operators on Wall street who work this racket e very j ear. They want to buy a cer tain line of stocks at a very low figure, and to carry out their purpose they get out the cry of tight money, under the influence of which, stocks tumble, and they get what they want at their own prices Money then mysteriously be comes plentiful acain, the cry of stringency ceases to be heard, and things move on as be fore." "What part in this scheme do the banks playT" "1 do not know that they are in collusion with the clique of operators alluded to, but they may be. It is easy for them to square the money market almost any time by gathering in their call loans. These have been called in largely within the past few days to enable them to make rosy statements to the Controller of the Currency. This is probably one of the main causes of the stringency." A New York telegram received last night savs: This was another day of tight money, loans being made as high as 12 per cent on call and the majority being at a higher rate than 7 per cent. More apprehension is felt in recrard to tne situation man on any previous uay mis week, and fears of trouble are expressed should the stringency continue to-morrow.

A DRI DOLE. 1 The Smith Well nt Jefferson Center Nothing but a Burner. Trading at the Oil Exchange yesterday showed that tbe market was still In the Slough of Despond, with no Christian to point the way out. The opening and highest price was 99c, the lowest 95c, and tbe closing 98c Tbe slight break was due to selling at Bradford. Wednesday's clearings were only 81,000 barrels, with one exception the smallest of any day in tbe history of tbe Exchange. Tbe feeling was rather bullish at the opening, on the report that the Smith well at Jefferson Center was a duster, but the attempt to get up a boom was a fiat failure, and the fellows who make tbe market soon cave up in diszusr. It was like Hamlet with Hamlet omitted. There were a few sales of cash oil at 9Sc and 98c The close was steady. Field news from Washington county was to this effect: Acheson No. 2 got the sand Tues day: it is cood for 100 barrels. The Claffey well in West End came in to-day; it is showing for a good well. The Grayson well, which is being watched with great interest, is showing up rather poorly; it is quite a black eye to this end of the field. ( Features of the Blnrlcet. Corrected daily by John II.

Stocks Continue to Show a Decllnlns Ten dency Under the Influence of Dear Illoney nnd Prospective Gold Shipments Losses All Round. New York, October 3. The money market settled down to-day with exasperating slowness, but had not more Influence to-day than during the past few days The market was decidedly weak throughout the entire session, and on some stocks the bears jumped with both feet, aided principally by tbe fear of further gold shipments engendered by the fact tbat the re serve of tbe Bank of England Is down to 33.3 per cent, against 42.15 per cent last week when tbe advance on the rate of discount was made. There was no further advance made to day.but the gold which has gone out is believed to have gone there, and the negotiation of a large loan to Brazil by tbe Rothschilus makes it almost certain that more gold will be needed to fill the The market opened with a steady tone, but the bears got to work immediately, and the pressure was again specially severe atrainst Atchison for no particular reason, and against Cotton Oil which had been so firmly held through the weakness of the other trusts. It gave way steadilv, and finally brought sugar along with it. The Chicago people were very prominent in the selling of this stock, and they also sold St. Paul liberally on the decrease in the earnings for the fourth week of September, although the fact that it contained one day less than last year was well known. Manitoba and Burlington were noted exceptions to tbe rest of the list; being strong all the way out, al though the former had a severe setback in the afternoon. As the day wore along the pressure extended to the entire active list, and evenCsuch special ties as Pullman were affected and prices stead ily declined without importance. The market closed active and weak at the lowest prices of tbe day. Almost everything on the list is lower. Cotton Oil lost 3. Manhattan Sugar 1, Atchison 2, St. Paul, Reading aud Pullman 1 each, Missouri Pacific 1& Lacka wauna. New England and Northern Pacific preferred 1 per cent each. The railroad bond market, although the dealings extended to a large number of issues, was still dull, and except for a few wide move ments among the inactive issues, was entirely devoid of features The movements as usual, were extremely irregular, but the general tone of the transactions was weik, and losses are noticed in a majority of tho list. The total sales reached only S8.i6.000. and no special ani mation was shown in any part of the list. Tbe following tame snows tne prices oractlve stockson tbe New York Mock kxenange yester day.

Pennsylvnnln Politicians Meditate No At tack Cpon tbe President. I SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1 "Washington, October 3. Quite a flurry was occasioned by the simultaneous appearance here yesterday of a number ot Pennsylvania politicians, principally from tbe East, and tbe report tbat more were to come. Senator Cameron arrived "Wednesday, and persons with whom Sen ator Quay is in communication stated posi tively that that distinguished statesman would arrive here last evening. Putting it all together the conclusion was reached that there was to be a formidable conference of Pennsylvanians to-day to take decisive action and inform President Harrison that Pennsylvania offices must be attended to instanter, and columns of sensational dis patches to this effect were sent out last ni.'ht. So iar as can ha learned there is nothing in the story. Quite a number of Pennsyl vanians are here, but there are also Con gressmen and politicians here from nearly every State of the Union. Ex-Governor Hoyt is here on private business. Surveyor Iieland, George Pierie and Representatives Bingham, Harmer and O'Neill are here (rom Philadelphia to fix up the subordinate offices of Mr. Leland's department of sur veyor of the port. Hon. John F. Dravo is here, stopping with his son-in-law, Attor ney McCreery, and is talking of his candi dacy for surveyor of the Pittsburg port. Senator Quay is not here, and a telegram received trom him at the Arlington Hotel, giving directions about certain matters, contains no intimation of the time of his nr-i rival. oeuaior Cameron comes to confer with the President in regard in nnnnln1 ments In the eastern part of the State. It can safely be asserted that no formidable coaierence of Jf eunaylvaalans is to be 1889. DOMESTIC MARKETS. Good Inquiry for Dairy Products, and Trade Very Actives CUCUMBERS SCAECE AKD HIGHER.

I had It treated by burning, and got so weak tbat I did not think that I could stand it much longer. After much suffering I discarded all other treatment, and began taking Swift's Specific, and the cancer soon began to heal, and m a short time it was completely healed and I was entirely well. It is now oyer tbree years since I got well, and there has been no sign of any return of the disease. I know it was cancer, and I know it was cured alone by S. U. S. E. V. Fereand, Boston, La.
