Markets at the Heir's Island Yards
Somewhat Sluggish.
A LJfht Enn of Sheep and Demand Slow,
TVith Laml3 Eeduced.
Office of PrrrsBtma dispatch,
JIondat. October 21, 1SS9. J
Markets at these yards are sluggish, and
prices -were a shade lower than last Monday.
Mild weather of late has been charged up
with slowness of markets. Good goods held
up fairly well to prices of last week, but
these were in the minority. The general
quality cf the offerings was not quite up to
The run of cattle varied very little from
last week, but quality was inferior. On ac
count of low quality, butchers demanded
and received material reductions on prices
of a weekaco. Best heavy Chicago cattle,
weighing 1,400 to 1,500 pounds, sold at 54 85 to So;
fair to good, 1,200 to 1.300 pounds H CO to
Si 75; light weights, 800 to 1,100 pounds,
J4 15 to H 60; common, thin and rough steers,
$3 50 to $105. Butchering cattle from neighbor
ing counties were lower. S. Lowenstein sold 05
head of Washington county cattle at a range or
S3 25 to $4 00. The range for fresh cows was
S25 00 to 550 00, and calves were easier at last
week's range of 6 to 6c per ponnd. Receipts

At Liberty and Chirneo.
The ran of cattle at Liberty to-day was some
CO carloads larger than last Monday, but prices
were fairly maintained for all desirable grades
ot butchering stock. Hogs, however, showed
weakening tendencies on unfavorable news
from Chicago. At Chicago the receipts of
bogs to-day were 31,000 head, and prices are oil
20c from last week's rates. The range to-day
at the Western metropolis is 54 25 i CO.
By reference to statistics it is learned that on
the 25th of November, 1879, the receipts of
bogs at Chicago were 64.613, and that they sold
at $4 40 when corn was 39c per buibel. Corn is
now 8c less pel bnsbeL In the spring of lttSO,
bogs sold at 54 00, and one of our leading pack
ers predicts that they will go as Ion next
On tbe 5th of December, 1SS4, was the largest
run of hogs on record at Chicago, the total on
that day having been 66,597, and of all classes
of live stock, 100,000. There are dealers bero
willing to bank on the belief that the run of
bogs this season will be up to anything in the
pact. There seems to be enough of thi faith
to give the hog market to bears at this date.

All the Cereal Weaker Under tho Influence
of nn Unexpectedly Large Visible
Supply Shorts InTFIicat
Chicago There was rather largo trading In
wheat in a.speculative way to-day, and the mar
ket ruled weak and lower. The speculative
offerings were heavy, 'and a prominent local
trader was reportad to have sold 1,000,000 bush
els, with other traders selling moderate quanti
ties. But with all the influences brought to
bear on the market prices suffered a decline of
only lo for DocemberandJfcforMay. Fair buy
ing prevented a further break; shorts covered
lreely, and there was also somo buying from
other sources at the Bottom, evidently in ex
pectation of a reaction following so large a
break, and some on the prediction of smaller
The opening was weak, and KKC lower than
Saturday's closing, held for a little while and
later broke off c mote for December and c
for May, then became stronger, recovering
slightly, but closed easy and about c lower for
December and Jc lower for May tuan closing
figures of Saturday. It will be noticed that May
did not rule as weak as the December future,
and the preminm was widened from 22Jc
Saturday, to 3fflSJ6c to-day.
T ,e principal Itature of weakness was in tho
visible supply. An increase of about 1,500,000
bushels had been expected, but when the figures
began to indicate an increase of iver 2,000.000
bushels, selling became generak The final fig
ures showed an increase of 2,212,000 bushels. A
great deal of long wheat came on the market.
The increase was at Minneapolis, Duluth,
Buffalo, Chicago and on the canal.
In corn a good speculative trade was wit
nessed, and the feeling developed was weaker,
lower prices being the rule all round. The
chief weakening influences as the free offer
ings by a prominent local speculator, whose
sales nrobably reached in the neighborhood of
L500,0u0 bushels chiefly May and November.
A very good demand existed for May around
22Jc and several short lines for tho other
futures were covered to-day. The market
opened atahout Saturday's closing prices, was
weak and i-old off ic, rallied iic when the
visible supply was made known, showing a de
crease in the amount in sight of 1,122,000 bush
els, ruled steady and closed iRJic loner.
Oats were depressed Jic by the weakness in
wheat and large receipt! The visible supply
also increased 56S.000 bushels. Trading was
active. Onelarge operator, who was a heavy
buyer last week, selling lreely. Several oper
ators also bought Slay early, but resold at the
decline. The depression iu the near futures
was the most marked, October delivery to
17Jc Later, May became stronger, most
of tne decline being regained.
The mcts pork market attracted very little
attention. Offerings were comparatively light
and the demand was limited confined to filling
a few "shorts." Prices exhibited very little
In lard more strength was developed, but the
trading was only moderate. The belief pre
vails that tne market is oversold for October
delivery and the inquiry in a quiet wav tended
to confirm it. Prices were advanced 57c on
October, while other deliveries were strong at
2Kg5c advance.
In short rib sides trading was somewhat
limited and the feeling easier. Prices ruled
about 2c lower and ths market closed quiet.

Mr. Young, of the Lawrence Bank,
Returns Home to be Surprised.
A Pittsbnrger Interested in One of the
Greatest Deals on Record.
The absconding President of the Lawrence
Bank, Lawrenceville, "W. "W. Young, re
turned from his annnal fishing expedition
to the Kankakee Sunday night, and was
surprised, and much more, when informed
of the sensational and entirely groundless
report which had been circulated in his
absence regarding his whereabouts and the
solvency of the institution of whiph he is
the head, to the effect that he had packed
all the movables of the bank into a grip
sack and skipped to Canada to jointhe fa
mous American colony there. It is needless
to repeat, for the fact has been made very
clear, that the report was out of the whole
cloth, tnere being no basis for it whatever.
The bank is one of the most substantial in
the city, having large resources and an able
and conservative management.
Mr. Robert Smith, of the Union National
Bank,statcd yesterday that the Lawrence Bank
wasas good as gold in the pocket, Saving 00,
000 or more to its credit at the Union at the
height of the excitement on Saturday, none of
which waB needed to tide over the little run
caused by tho false report of the President's
criminal disappearance, The flurry has sub
sided entirely, and business at the bank is
moving along as smootbly as before.
Are any of the descendants of John Camp
bell living in this vicinity? He was engaged in
mercantile pursuits in Pittsburg in 1775. In
that year, as a member of the Wabash Land
Company, he assisted in closing np one of tho
greatest private transactions in real estate on
record in this country, tbe nearest approach
to it in magnitude being the Symmes purchase
in Obio. The only deals which surpass it in
importance, were the purchases by the Gov
ernment of the Louisiana Territory and of
Alaska. It involved about 30,000,000 acres In
Illinois and Indiana.
Tho sellers were the Piankeshaw Indians
represented by 12 ot their chiefs, and the con
sideration was 400 blankets, 22 pieces of Stroud,
(a species of heavy cloth), 250 shirts, 12 gross
star gartering, 120 pieces ribbon for female
ornament, 24 pounds vermilion, 18 pairs velvet
laced housings, 1 piece of multon, 52 fusils
(guns, 35 dozen largo bnckhorn handled
knives, 40 dozen coutean knives, 500 pounds
brass kettles, 10,000 gunflints, 600 pounds gun
powder, 2,000 pounds lead, 400 pounds tobacco,
40 bushels salt, 8,000 pounds flour, 3 horses,

Monday is not so blue as it looks to some peo
ple. Said a leading real estate broker yester
day: "I have no fault to find with Monday.
Indeed, it is one of the best days I have. I
don't do as mnch new business as on other
days, but I close npa larger number of trans
actions. People are cooler and less disposed to
rush things than later in the week. Thev
think more about what they have done, or
ought to do. It is a day of retrospection and
conclusions. In scores of instances where I
have been unable to close sales on other days
of tho week, I have easily snecoeded on Mon
day. "Buyers and sellers would come in and say:
I have been thinking over that little matter to
day, and have concluded to close it up.' Mon
day may he blue to people in other business
but it is always welcomed by real estate deal
ers, who finish more business on that day than
on any other."
The New York drygoods market Is very quiet
tor the season. The personal demand from
jobbers in the "regular" way is light to the
verge of dullness. A seasonable distribution is
being made of dress goods, hosiery and similar
fabrics adapted to the fall trade through tho
medium of mail reorders (from nearby and
Southern retailers), and by means of price con
cessions made by leading jobbers. The trade
in holiday specialties with large jobbers has
started up actively. With agents tbe same re
ports of light but steady reorders for season
able goods are made. The chief activity no
ticeable is in the receipt ot orders for spring
cottons, notably woven wash fabrics, white
goods, ginghams and printed sateens. Prices
have shown few changes.
Operations in the Boston market are hardly
sustaining the promises of the early part of tho
month, and yet there is no particular occasion
to find fault The retail trade throughout New
England is brisk, and jobbers and commission
merchants look for an early replenishing of
stocks. Prices are sustained, with tbe excep
tion of print cloth and some makes of brown
sheetings. The position of cotton flannels is
unusually strong. In the jobbing department
the distribution covers the full range for ttie
season. All the wool dress goods are selling
well, while clothing woolens are unchanged.
From present indications prices during tho
coming season will be at least as higb as they
are now.
It seems the South is suffering from the
"boomers" in land. In Birmingham, Ala., the
land speculators have checked the industrial
interests and thrown them back for years. Here
is the way one of tbe victims talks:
"If .the speculators in real estate, the men
who boom the prices of lots up until working
men are compelled to pay almost, if not quite,
as much rent in new towns with lev m no con
veniences as they do in Eastern cities where
thev get something for their money it the land
speculators were shot or drowned, the towns in
which new factories and mills, like Birming
ham and there are many towns in w'hlch new
enterprises are struggling would undoubtedly
succeed. But bow can the new concerns com
pete with old establishments when the land
speculators once get tbeir hooks InT They ab
sorb all the land available, put a fictitious
value on it and tbe operatives of the new fac
tories are compelled to walk a mile, when, if the
land speculators were kept out they could find
bouses within easy reach for moderate prices."
The Pittsburg way slow and sure is the
best It is death to booms and a guarantee
against disastrous reactions.

Increasing Business Beginning to Slake the
Locnl Financier Smile.
A large amount of business was transacted at
the local banks yesterday. Money was easy
with a fair demand at the customary rates.
Checking was heavy and discounting of good
proportions. There was a revival of the com
plaint of a scarcity of currency by some of the
banks, but others had enough to get along with.
The exchanges were 52,621,049 78 and the bal
ances 5311,837 44.
BusSell Sage, speaking of the money market
yesterday, said that the situation was all right
money had been absorbed by reason of the
unusual business and railroad activity through
out tbe country, and that the bears had taken
advantage of the situation to make it appear as
bad as possible. They bad bidden away all the
money they could get their hands on, but as
they were destitnteof collaterals tbe amounts
thus hidden away were not very large. It was
Mr, Sage's opinion that the present stringency
was healthy and natural, and that when mouey
begins to return freely from the West the stock
market would jump.
Money on call at New York yesterday was
tight ranging from 6 to 12, last loan closed
offered at 5 per cent Prime mercantile paper,

Not a Bad Oil Market for Monday A Bullish
A short horse is soon curried. The oil market
yesterday was a short horse. It was strong
enough but business was light Still, it wasn't
a bad market for Monday. The strength was
imparted by Oil City, which did about all tbe
buying. New York sold a little, Pittsburg did
nothing particular either way, but sellers were
in the majority, McKelvey doing tbe bulk of
the unloading. The feeling was rather bullish
at tbe close. The opening price was 99c,
highest 51 00, lowest 99c, closing 51 00
There was no field news of importance. Satur
day's clearings were 282,000 barrels.
The Wells Finished Recently Prove to be
Small Producers.
Washington, Pa., October 21 Zelt oil well
No. 2 has drilled through the Gantz Band and
is filled up, but does not flow. The Stevenson-Schmitz-Darragh
well Is also through
the Gantz and without sufficient gas
to make a flow. The Gosford failed
to flow yesterday until agitated. This
is the well that came in a gusher about a week
ago. Kelly & Uo.'s Hutson mystery is a small
producer. Brown & Co.'s Agnew should get
the sand the latter part of tbe week.
Aiken fc Co.'s No. 9, on the David Haggerty
farm is finished. She is a SO-barrel pumper.

Tight Money Gives iho Bear Crowd n
Cbnnce to Get la Their Work
Trusts and Grnngers tho
Principal SntTerera.
New Yosk, October 21. The stock- market
was more active but decidedly weak to-day, and
the declines were very material, reaching all
portions of the list, although Trusts and Grang
ers are the principal sufferers. A variety of
causes contibuted to this end. though the per
sistent attacks of the bears under cover of the
high rates for money, were most effectual in
bringing about the downward movement To
aid them this morning there were not only
decided opposition to tbe Sugar Trust by
Spreckels, but the publication of the statistics
of tho coal trade for tbe expired portion of the
year and the late decreases in the earnings of
tbe Grangers.
New cuts in rates by the Burlington and
Northern aUd some opposition to the Atchison
plan which has developed in London were also
unfavorable factors. The opening of the market-was
tame and heavy, and tbe bear imme
diately began the attack, paying special atten
tion to Sugar, Cotton Oil. Lackawanna, Rock
Island and Chicago Gas. The traders lent their
influence to tbe bears, and there was undoubt
edly considerable long stock dislodged, while
tbe uncovering of several stop orders accel
erated the drop.
The pressure upon the coal stocks was es
pecially severe toward noon, but later the at
tention was transferred to National Lead and
Missouri Pacific "Among the specialties, how
ever, Tennessee Coal, Manitoba, Delaware and
Hudson and Jersey Central were most conspicu
ous for the declines established. There was
later some opposition offered to the decline by
covering of shorts put out earlier in the day,
and money also eased up. dropping to 6 per
cent against 12 during the early demand. Tho
improvement however, was of small propor
tions, and the market, while becoming some
what quieter, made no rally of importance ex
cent in Jersey Central, which here covered
about all of the loss,
Tho market closed quiet but heavy, at some
thing better than the lowestprices. The entire
active list is materially lower this evening. The
most Important declines were Sugar, Dela
ware and Hudson 2, Manitoba 2, Lead and
Cotton each 2. Cleveland, Columbus, Cincin
nati and St. Louis and Burlington each 1,
Lackawanna 1, Transcontinental 1, Mis
souri Pacific preferred and Lake Erie and
Western preferred 1 each, Missouri Pacific
1, Northwestern and Lake Shore each 1,
Reading, St Paul and Chesapeake and Ohio
seconds preferred each 1, Rock Island and
Union Pacific each 1 per cent and the others
fractional amonnts.
Tbe Post's financial article says: "The whole
stock market was active, weak and lower
throughout the forenoon, and this time it was
not the money market which caused selling,
but tho realization of the fact that tbe roost
Important grants of stocks, the Coalers and the
Grangers, do not afford as flattering prospects
in the matter ot earnings as they did some
weeks ago. It does not matter whether the
stocks were attacked by bears or not It is
quite certain that they were widely held and
by tbe uncovering of stop orders all went down
easily, carrying the rest of the market with
Railroad bonds were dull as usual, the sales
of all issues aggregating 5810,000.

pleasure trip to the headwaters of Cheat river,
accompanied by his family.
Tub coal agents will meet in New York to
day, and nn advance in rates will probably be
ordered to take effect two weeks bence. The
condition of trade Is said to be improved.
There is a kick among the people down the
valley over the announcement that tho Electric
Railroad Company will lay its tracks on Cali
fornia avenue before it is graded or paved.
"Wby this hurry?
The Reading Railroad reports that its coal
shipment estimated for the week ending Octo
ber 19, was lSo.000 tons, of which 34,000 tons
were sent to Port Richmond, and 21,000 tons
were sont to Port Liberty,
Mb. H. N. WnrrsEY, of Kissam. Whitney
& Co., New York, says: "It is a question of ex
traordinary prosperity and large railroad earn
ings versus temporary tight money. Prosperitv
and earnings will win tbe race; tight money may
be the horse which will lead tor a day or two,
but he will quickly And himself outpaced."
The Pennsylvania Railroad reports that the
quantity of coal and coke originating on and
carried over its lines east of Pittsburg and
Erie for the week ending October 12 was 192,
865 tons, of which 201,747 tons were coal and 91,
118 tons coke. Tbe total tonnage for tbe year
tbns far has been 11.695,800 tons, compared
nith 12,194,003 tons in tbe corresponding period
of 1888, a decrease of 498,708 tons, of which 8.
306,225 tons were coal, a decrease of 795,197
tons, and 3,349,075 tons coke, an increase of

Country Produce Jobbing Prices.
Monday seldom furnishes pointers to trade.
The potato glnt is fast disappearing, but at
considerable sacrifice to snippers. An Iowa
dealer closed out his stock this morning, and
the result was J160 freight on a carload and (40
proceeds. Abetter quality of potatoes is an
ticipated by dealers than that which has been
coming of late. Dairy produots present no new
features. Eggs are active and Arm. The sup
ply of graped is large, and quality all that could
be desired. Apples still go slow, except very
fancy, which are in short supply. Walnuts and
chestnuts begin to come in freely, hut the crop
is reported below average in volume.

TenYears of Intense-Suffering
Mr. Frank Bordar, a well-known gentleman,
suffered for ten years from kidney disease.
After receiving two months' treatment from
the physicians of thePolypathlc Medical Insti
tute, be gave the following interesting history,
with permission to publish it. Be said: "I had
much pain across my back and lower part of
my body. My bands and feet would often get
cold, aud sharp cramps would often seize me.
My heart would at timespalpitate as if it would
Jump out of my body. Hot flashes would often
come over me. I was always tired on getting
np in the morning. The disease finally ex
tended to my lungs, causing much pain and
tightness in my chest. In vain I tried to find
some doctor who could wire me, but could only
get a little relief, and so I suffered on in this
way for ten years. I finally read in the papers
of wonderful cures being made by the phy
sicians of tbe Polypathic Institute, and as X
read that they made a specialty of my disease,
1 began treatment and I am glad to state that
IJhave been cured."
Remember the Polypathic Medical Institute
is permanently located at Pittsburg, 420 Penn
avenue, for the treatment ot all forms of kid
ney and urinary diseases. Office hours, 10 A. X.
