?THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1889.
11 & TO TABLE VIANDS. 7, r Tarieties of Fruit and Vegetables Curtailed by Frost ; POULTRY AND BDTTEE GO LOWER. Bnpplj of Ocean Products Better Than for Months Fast QUIET TBAD IS FLORAL OFFERINGS OFFICE OF PITTSBURG DISPATCH. FKIDAT. OctoDer 13. 18S8. I There are few features of interest in the line of market basket materials different from last Saturday. The first killing frosts of the season put in their appearance this week, and outdoor tomatoes are a thing of the past. Grapes and California fruits have the field in fruit lines. At the Diamond .Market stalls a quiet week's trade is re- ported. The qnietness is attributed to the winding up ot the Exposition. We are now haying the lull which naturally follows the rush of the past few weeks. Dairy products, which lor several weeks past were moving upward, have turned the other direction, but not enough to affect re tail prices. A General Kevlew. Poultry comes in more freely and prices are a shade lower than they were jnveekago. The supply of fish and oysters is now well up to demand, but prices are firm, especially for high grade stock. Weather the past week has been favorable to fishermen along the coast, and the result is seen in better supplies of ocean fruits at this market. Florists are not jubilant over the trade of this week. Last week brought unusual de mands in floral lines, on account of numerous weddings and other society events. This week we are having the calm that follows the storm, and the effect is seen in a light demand for flowers. But the present lull is only a temporary one, and, according to all past experience, there will be a bteady Increase of demand in floral Hues from now till (bo holidays. Our florists arc better prepared to meet this demand than Ian season, when they were forced in the neigat or tue season to draw suppues uom astem markets.

Kot Bfnch Tim In the Wheat Pit, but Talnes EnU Fractionally Higher Cable Advice Rather Dliconrms Ids to Holders Chicago "Wheat trading-was moderate and within narrow limits. Occasionally a little spurt of trading occurred. Prices held their own very well, with May showing some strength, and the premium over December was widened to 3J3Jc. The market opened dull at about yesterdays closing figures, held steauy for awhile and then advanced c for Decem ber and Jgc for May above Inside figures reached, eased off Jfc, rallied a and closed c higher for December and jjc higher for May than closing figures of yesterday. Trading Is gradually centering In May. a here was really nothing new in the Influences pre sented on which to base speculative ventures. Cable advices were unfavorable for holders. It was rumored that the Agricultural Depart ment figured a total yield of 493,000.000 bushels for the crop of 1889. but nothing definite could be learned retarding" the Tumor. There was a rumor that 20 loads of wheat had been taken in New York for export, but late advices denied this, but tated that it might prove to be 20 loads of No. 1 Northern taken by Philadelphia millers. Milwaukee reports 10,000 sacks to-day. It was estimated that the receiptsat Minneapo lis for Monday would reach 2,003 cars. In corn the firm feeliner that has prevailed for several days past became more apparent to-day, and higher prices were established, especially on the near deliveries. The stronger tone was due to the small receipts. Vet weather, good shipping demand and decreasing stocks. The market opened jc above the closing prices of yesterday, was strong, receivers and ship pers both purchasing near months, and gradu ally advanced y2c cased offJic, becime firmer, and closed JiffiKc higher than yesterday.

A LIGHTNING DEAL flow a Real Estate Owner Was Cor nered by a Hustling Agent' ELECTRICITY IN THE SDBDRBS. Steel Advances at Glasgow on Reported Failure of Natural Gas, WHAT THE W0ED LIMITED SIGNIFIE8 Owners of real estate, when they want to sell, pursue the same policy as people in other lines of business. They want all thev can get for their property. Sometimes, when they hesitate about selling, the offer of a large price, much more than they expected, quickly brings them tov terms. A case of this kind occurred in the lower part of the city a short time ago. A Fourth avenue agent eceived a com mission to buy a certain piece of business property not far from Market street. It was badly wanted by the gentleman giving the order, and he was not particular about the price. The property was worth, in the usual way, 510,000 or 512,000. The agent offered the latter price for it, but the owner reiused to let it go at that figure, saying he didn't want to selL In a Tew days the agent called again, but the owner adhered to his former conclusion. This put the agent on his mettle, and he determined to make a trade somehow. "You say you don't want to sell,'' ae remarked to the owner. "Now if some one would come along and offer you a fancy price, away above what you hold the property at, what would you doT" "Oh, in that case I would let it go. But I hardly think there is any one fool enough to offer me, say, $20,000 for a property that isn't really worth more than the half of it as it stands." "Will you take S20.000 for itT" asked the agent. "Certainly I will. If anybody is idiot enough to offer it," replied the owner. 'Twill take it," snapped the agent. And, determined not to give the owner a chance to change his mind, the agent sat down there and then, examined the title, made out the papers, had them signed and handed the seller a check for the money. He has been lamenting ever since that he didn't ask more. The property has been improved by the pur chaser, and Is now worth probably twice as much as he paid for It. This Napoleonic style of dealing is not recom mended for general adoption, for it has its drawbacks, but it certainly worked well in the case in question. Sewickley, Wilkinsburg, Edgewood and per haps other towns in the vicinity of Pittsburg are enjoying the luxury of electric light, and from all indications It is giving satisfaction to the citizens. This brings to view a fact hitherto not puDlicly noticed, the general movement among small towns in this end of the State to secure electric lighting. At present quite a number of boroughs surrounding Pittsburg are discussing the feasibility of getting the new light at a cost proportionate to their small population. The American Manufacturer takes consider able stock in the staying powers of natural gas. It says: "Through a private cable received in Pittsburg on Tuesday, wo learn that there has been considerable excitement in Glasgow over the rumor that natural gas had given out loPitts burg, and, as a consequence, the price of steel was advancing in that city. It seems almost past belief that sensible people, who have paid the least attention to the question of the sup ply of natural gas, can credit any such absurd storie3. While there can be no doubt that ulti mately the supply of gas will be exhausted, or will become so small in volume as to make it necessary to secure other fuel for large opera tions, there is no immediate prospect of any such exhaustion. "The strongest wells that have ever been struck In the neighborhood of Pittsburg, possi bly the strongest wells yet found in the United States, are those of the comparatively recently opened Bellevernon district, while the volume of gas that is being produced in the various Washington, Murraysville and other districts in the immediate vicinity of these show, as yet, no signs of diminution." The present condition of the Connellsville coke trade may be said to be the best in the history of the region, but on account of the scarcity of cars some of the works throughout the region made but four or five days the past week. It is expected, however, that with the number of individual cars now being built, the operators will be enabled to catch up with orders before long. The shipments for the week ending yesterday would have been fully 8.000 cars had the means of transportation been adequate, bnt for lack of shipping facilities 2,500 cars of coke were stocked in the yards. Many works are unable to draw, on account of this accumulation. w It has become somewhat common nowadays to see the word "limited," In parenthesis, after the titles of corporations, and it is safo to say that people generally do not understand the significance of this term, though, of course, business men do. Tbe old principle of corpora tions created by legislative act was that the en tire property of every stockholder was liable for the whole of the company, as the whole property of every member of a general partner ship is still liable for, the debts of tbe firm. This system made every shareholder responsi ble for bad management, of which he might not be gnilty, and deterred wealthy men from be coming interested in the shares of corporations. To remove this objection the principle of limited responsibility was introduced, and in order to notify the public that only the sep arate property of the corporation was liable ror the debts of the corporation, the English law requires that the word "limited" shall be used in every case by the company in connection with its title. t Further talk of developing the Cheat river coal fields has been caused by the recent pur chase of LOOO acres of land in Springfield county, W. Va., by WaUer Laughead, of Uniontown, Pa. It is said that coke ovens are to be built on the property. Mr. Laughead states that he made the purchase for Eastern capitalists. The general opinion among Con nellsville coke producers is that thero will be no definite move in the near future to make developments in the field mentioned. The Meal Estate Record and Business Guide remarks, and its meaning is plain: "Those who argue that prices of real estate In the business portion of the city and directly on lines of com munication have reached their limit are re ferred to the prices ruling in other cities in sim ilarly favored localities. This is a subject that must be considered apart from suburban values, and without reference to the valuation ot the property in request by the buyers of home sites. When the volume of trade and facilities presented In the business localities are borne in mind, and values compared with those recognized in other large cities, the impression that values have reached their limit will prob ably yield, and the conclusion that they must Increase in Pittsburg just as they have done elsewhere will be admitted." Considerable excitement has been caused in Preston county, W. Va by the discovery of what is claimed to be rich lead deposits. Mr. C. E. Gallagher, of New York, Chief Engineer ot the West Virainia and Pennsylvania Rail road, which is projected from Wheeling to Uniontown, Fa,, has formed a company of cap italists to develop the ore. STILL THE U.VDER DOG. No Let-up to the Raid on Philadelphia Gas Company Stock. Evil communications corrupt good manners in stocks as other things. The weakness of the natural gas shares is beginning to affect all the favorites. Nearly everything on the active list, which was very narrow, was weaker yesterday. Philadelphia Gas was again the cynosure of, attention. It opened,:; 31) and sold down to ' 80 on sales of 425 shires. As support seems to be getting weaker, it would surprise very few if 2$ or even 25, were reached before tbe raid is j over. It all depends upon the hoJders of small lots. If they begin a general unloading away it will go. There was no other feature to the market Bids, offers and sales are given below, Monxrjm. attbbwoos. Bid. Aiksd. Hid.

A PLETHORA OP FUNDS. Pittsburg Banks Hold Plenty of money for All Legitimate Purposes. Chicago reports no money to spare, hut Pitts burg banks have more than they can find em ployment for. The difference between the two is that Chicago is a debtor and Pittsburg a creditor city money moves from the one and toward the other. Pittsburg manufactures draw funds hither; Chicago specnlation causes an outward flow, making that center one of the first to feel a financial pinch. Nothing short of a universal crash which would pnt a stop to all manufacturing, could materially affect Pittsburg. Other cities East and West have been complaining at intervals for a month or two of tight money, but the situation here has been at no time strained, and the prospect is good for an easy money market all through the winter. There was a good demani for funds yesterday which was supplied at the customary rates. Checking was good and depositing liberal for so near the end of tbe week. Currency was easier. The ex changes were $2,544,541 18 and the exchanges 323,550 32. The probability is that Pittsburg will put Baltimore in a hole again this week. Money on call at New York yesterdav was easy, ranging from 4K to 6, last loan 5, closed offered at 5 per cent. Prime mercantile paper, 5K7.

GOING SKYWAED. The Oil Boom Still On, bat It Foils to Inter est Outsiders. The bulls on oil were more bullish than ever yesterday. They stormed around until they got the price up to 106 The opening was 105 the highest 106. the lowest 103, and the closing 105. The Inciting causes of the boom were a ad vance of five poiuts in refined at New York, and expectations that New York shorts will soon bo compelled to cover. One or two ex perts said tbe market was runing np too fast to stay. Conditions, however, are beginning to count, and they all favor the advance. Pittsburg and OH City were the principal supporters of the market. New York sold; but there was considerable realizing all round: A notable circumstance is that the boom has so far failed to interest outsiders. The lobby yesterday was very thin. Room traders had it all to themselves. The close was steady to strong. Thursday's clearings were 860,000 bar rel. The Wheeling Natural Gas Company is drill ing four new wells, all of which are expected to come in within a week. The wells are situ ated in Oakwelland Mount Pleasant townships, Washington county, and when finished they will be connected with the company's mainline from Washington county to Wheeling. One of the wells was started as early as" last December, but last spring the tools broke and since then the contractors have had a fishing job, which lasted for several months and de layed the work considerably. However, the well is now drilled down Into the sand and it will be first to come in. Features of tbe Market. Corrected daily by John M.

Railroad Shares Hold All of tbe Recent Gains nnd a Little More News Entirely Favorable to tbo Ball Mde. New Yoek, October 25. The stock market was more active and decidedly strong to-day, and at the close all the active stocks were materially higher than they were last evening. Thonensof tbe day was almost entirely of a favorable character, and the disposition upon tbe street was to regard the new traffic agree ment between tbe Union Pacific and North western in a more favorable light, which stim ulated buying of both of those stocks, and Union Pacific especially. The bullish feeling extended to tbe other Granger stocks, and for the first time in some weeks that group of shares was strong throughout, Rock Island being specially conspicuous in tho upward movement. The buying was done by commis sion houses, who advised buying for the first time since the monetary stringency became a factor in the stock market, aided by Chicago and London in the attei noon. The shorts cov ered freely on the earlier condition of money and helped thejupward movement to a great extent. London was a seller of Union Pacific to a limited extent in tho early dealings, and this had, as on yesterday, the effect of checking the natural upward tendency of the market, but the offerings were easily absorbed, and rumors of Vanderbilt's buying of the stocks soon started it upon tbe up tracer All tbe Vandcrbilt stocks were strong, and Lake Shore in particular, though none of them made any marked advance. The coal stocks were also strong, and Lackawanna late in the day took tbe lead of tho market, scoring the highest rise of the day, while Reading was the only slug gard. The Gould stocks, with the single ex ception of Missouri Pacific, were rather back ward, but many of the specialties made sharp gains, Denver. Texas and Fort Worth being the most prominent example among tbe stocks. The trusts were prominent in dealings, and sugar was weak on losses of the trust, and a probable further fall in the price of its pro duct, together with tbe new opposition. Cot ton Oil, on the contrary, was stropg, tbe point to not be short of It being freely circulated, resulting in neavy covering, and the expecta tion that the reduction in the capital would result in a scarcity of stock caused some buy ing. Sugar recovered on the report that no decision in the North liver case would be handed do asm to-day. The heavy earnings reported and the prom ising success of the Atchison plan aided in creating a bullish feeling, and in tbe prevailing ease in money the favorable general situation was paid more attention to. First prices this morning were qnite irregular and the market met in the early dealings some selling for Lon don and Chicago account, which resulted in a slight depression which was helped along by tbe weakness in sugar refineries. The market was dull but soon developed both activity .and strength and before the end of tbe first hour the list was on the upward move. This became more pronounced toward noon when sugar re covered, and sharp advances in Union Pacific and Denver, Texas and Ft. Worth took place, which were followed by similar movements in Cotton Oil. Richmond and West Point, the Coal stocks and specialties. There was some realizing toward the close and a fractional con cession was made from tbe best figures, but tho close while quiet was firm to strong. The final changes are in the direction of higher prices. Cotton Oil is up 2lA Lackawanna, 2; Chicago Gas and Denver, lexas and Ft.

Railroad bonds were both more active and stronger, and a firm tone existed thronghout the day, resulting in material advances among the active issues. The total sales of the day reached $1,607,000, bat to that amount Ft. Worth and Denver firsts contributed $138,000, Krie seconds $410,000 and Chesapeake and Ohio 53 $112,000. There was considerable animation in the Kansas and Texas issues still and the 7s made a marked advance. 'ine roliowmg tame snows tne prices orsetlve stocks on the New York Stock Exenange yester day.
