'When breathless in the mart tho couriers met, Early and late, at evening and at prime; When the loud cannon and the merry chime Hailed news on news, as fleld on field was won, "When hope, long doubtful, soared at length sublime. And onr glad eves, awoke as day begun, Watched joy's broad banner rise, to meet the rising sua. Scott. The following fraternal address has been issued by Department Commander Stewart to the post commanders. It is a good ad dress and has the right ring in it If the enthusiasm is not already sufficiently aroused this ought to serve the purpose of arousing it to the required pitch: We are now in the last Quarter of 1SS9. At the beginning of the year I asked that special effort be made to reach 50,000 membership In the Department of Pennsylvania by January, 1S90, and believed it possible to reach that number. We have gained largely, and in many posts splendid work has been done in recruiting. We have for very many years been the strongest Department in the G. A. R. Our positicn has been a matter of pride and honor to every comrade. With a membership of 60,000 our position is secure for all time. No other Department can surpass us. To those who have been laboring earnestly to increase our membership I desire to return my thanks. To those who have not pnt forth proper energy in recruiting I make an appeal at this time, while yet one quarter remims in which to do this work. An increase of 10 per cent in each post will accomplish the desired end. See if you Lave done this. If not please take the necessary steps at once to interest the com rades. Appoint a good recruiting committee, or whati better, give each comrade a blank application and ask bini to bring in a recruit before January 1. Ifjou have gained the re quired 10 percent continue the work and help us out. Appoint a competent delinquent committee to give attention to the reinstatement of droppea or suspended members. It would be a glorious record to be able to re port to the Department Encampment In Feb ruary next bOO posts and 60,000 men, and to re port a'so that not one post in tbe department ehowB a loss for 1SS9. Every post comimnder can share in the glory of such an achievement. Activity and earnest ness on tbe part of a commander of a post will encourage tbe comrades. He should lead in tho work. Call attention to recruiting every meeting night. The department officers have worked hard to advance the deuartment. I personally have traveled over 18,000 miles thus lar in this work, nut we are powerless unless our efforts are supplemented by yours. Help lis to reach tbe poiut for which we are striving. Do not relax your efforts or cease your work as long as an honorably discharged soldier wbo would be a desirable member of our order is outside our ranks. If you cannot secure his application see if there is not some comrade in the post who can. We can make this the ban ner jear of the banner department. Let us do Jt; then every department fficer and every post omcer can always point with pride to the fact that be contributed to that grand result. If your post has been doing its full share of the work I sincerely thank you for it. If not, let me urge you to go work now in earnest and resolve that this quarter shall show a good gain. Every post, lanre or small, can add to its numbers. There is material enough in every community. There are many dropped or sus pended members who can easily be induced to regain their membership, bhould the comrade be unable to pay the reinstatement fee, then help him by remitting all or part of it. Remember that work is being done along the whole line, and you will occupy an unenviable position if at the close of the j ear tbe post you have the honor to command is not up in its place.

The Wheat Pit TaUinc Blatter Quietly, bnt Val'ara Rule a Shade Higher Corn nnd Onts Tame Pork Unsettled. Chicago. In wheat there was moderate trading early and quiet later. Specnlative operators did not take to either side very favor ably. The feeling, however, was steady and rather firm, lhe opening was steady and prices held most of the session within Jgc range, ruling slightly over and slightly under yester day's closing figures, and closed Ha higher for December and Ha for May. Cable advices were a little more encouraging, quoting Jd ad vance for spot, but no change otherwise. Rus sian shipments were light. The wheat crop of tbe United Kingdom was estimated by some English authority to not exceed 70,000,000 bush els and that the import requirements would equal 150,000,000 bushels. This estimate is somewhat at variance with former official state ments, which placed the crop close to 80,000.000 bushels. An vices from the Northwest state that re ceipts will probably not let up until after the end of this month. It was estimated that the visible supply would show an increase of 2,000, 000 to 2.500,000 bushels. Rains have been quite general througbont the winter wheat country and all through the Northwest. Trading to day was ohieuv local. Some foreign buying orders were received both for December and May. A fair trade was transacted in corn within narrow limits, anf a strong feeling prevailed, though no material advance was established. Small receipts and unsettled weather were tho chief influenceswhich offered effectedvalucs, the near futures in particular ruling firmest of the session. It was feared the wet weather would af fect the grading of the new com. and a very good demand existed for December. The market opened a shade higher than the closing prices of yesterdav, was firm, and advanced MlBfyia, reacted , ruled steady, and closed nearly same as yesterday. Oats w ere traded In to a moderate extent, and a firmer feeling prevailed. A large operator sold heavily at the top, and the slight gain was lost. OctoDer met with a better inquiry, and sold at Kr advance. In pork only a fair trade was reported, and the feeling was somewhat unsettled. Offerings for October and November were somewhat larger, and sold at irregular prices, declining 15 20c. January ruled steady with little change to note. In lard trading was limited. October ruled stronger and 7f 10o higher, but other deliver ies were nnchauged. In short rib sides a fair business was trans acted, and there were few changes to note. October deliveries ruled 510c lower early but gradually rallied 1015c, and closed steady, without material change. The leading futures rangea as follows Wheat No. 2. December.

A v Market Honse on the Allegheny BiYer for Use of Both Cities. DETAILS OP THE BIG SCHEME. House Building Goes Bravely On, and a Word About Moving Day. PITTSBUKG AND HER LITTLE CBITICS Land is scarce and valuable in the busi ness part of Kttsburg, and any suggestion, idea or plan to ease up the pressure and in crease the business area is entitled to re spectful consideration. From a multiplic ity of devices there may eventually be evolved a project whioh will give the neces sary relief. With this purpose in view, a former resi dent of Boston, but now a prominent manu facturer o'f this city, whose name is at the command of anyone who may become inter ested in the matter, in coversation with The Dispatch representative yesterday, advanced an idea, at once original and novel, the adoption of which, in his opinion, would bring into use a large amount of sur face space in the heart of the city, which is greatly needed for business purposes. The idea is this: That when the contemplated bridge over the Allegheny river, at Fifth street, shall be built, the space between it and the Sixth street bridge bo floored and roofed over so as to form a building of sufficient size and strength for a market honse for the two cities, and so constructed as to afford a convenient passage way for teams and pedestrians from one side of the river to tho other. In other words, the proposition Is to make a continuous bridge from Fifth to Sixth street, roofed and floored, with doors, windows, stalls and other conveniences for the purposes of a general market, and with roadways at the sides and in the center to allow of free and easy ingress and egress. He is perfectly satisfied as to the feasibility of the scheme. As to the cost, he thinks it could be easily defrayed by the proceeds of tbe sale ottbe property now used for market house purposes in Pittsburg and Allegheny; or, if the cities should prefer to hold this property for other municipal uses, bonds could bo Issued to cover tbe expense, which would not be great. Rents from stalls and other market privileges would be large enough to soon cancel the debt. Tbe gentleman, who has given considerable thought to th6 matter, maintains that it is en tirely practicable, in proof of which he cities a similar structure over the river Seine at Paris, one over the Danube at Buda-Pesth, and the old London bridge over the Thames, which was covered with substantial houses, used both for residence and business purposes. Should tbe space between tbe Sixth and Seventh street bridges be deemed preferable for any reason centrality of location, for In stancethe improvement could be made there. t The lateness of the season makes but little 'impression upon the building Industry. It was active last week. Fifty-one permits were taken out. Tbe estimated cost of the improvements is $112,567. Very few large houses figure in the list, the large majority being of medium size, which is Just what Pittsburg needs houses to shelter the bone and sinew, the wealth-creators of the community. So far this year, the permits issued from the Bnilding Inspector's office, numbers 2,225. To this must be added a large number of houses in various stages of completion, for which per mits have not been applied for. These number probably 200, making a total for the expired portion of the year of nearly 2,500, the cost of which will exceed 5.250,000. This Is doing well. Pittsburg is growing. While nearly everybody is friendly to Pitts bnrg for what she has done as a leader of thought and action in all the great movements of the age, once In a while a Rip "Van Winkle irom some comatose community, Philadelphia or Baltimore generally, pa s us a visit to gather inspiration from the rush and push so charac teristic of our people, stays a few days, and falls to sleep again. Before doing which, how ever, he summons up sufficient energy to say that Pittsburg doesn't amount to much, is overrated, that natural gas is playing out, that the streets are dirty, the buildings Scrawny, and more of the same sort of stuff. Pittsburg nan stand any amount of this kind of criticism. No one has ever claimed that she is a pleasure resort, or a retreat for loafers. The city was built for business, and the original purpose ot its founders has been literally car ried out. She is to-day. as she has always been. a hive of industry, devoted to the development of the resources of nature and all that is best in man. Tbe streets are for business, and they serve this purpose admirably. The same kind of traffic passing over the streets of Philadel phia or Baltimore would ruin them in a month. The buildings are for use, not show. Still, many of them are Imposing in size and dis tinguished for architectural beauty. As for natural gas. it hasn't played out. There is plenty of it for manufacturing and domestic purposes, and will d for years to come. Pitts burg possesses other things to make her great and prosperous, which shonld be taken Into. the account by her critics for Instance, brains, energy and money. With her marvelous growth in population and business, and with a manifest destiny to still more completely overshadow all rivals, Pittsburg can well afford to let her critics rave. Of all the cities in America which will be visited by the South ana Central Americans nope will so deeply impress them as Pittsburg, and of none will they carry to their homes such pleasing and lasting recollections. r The principal features of local business last week were continued activity in the iron trade, and a liberal movement of all the staple prod ucts. There were no material changes In values, but they were well maintained. There was a surplus of money, although many other points east and west complained of a scarcity. Rates were steady at 66 on call, and 67 on time. Real estate was active. In the speculative branch the features were a bad break in Philadelphia Gas Company stock, and a sharp advance in petroleum. The In fluences affecting tbe Philadelphia stock were those which have been psed bv the bears for some time insufficient supply indicating a per manent shortage, and loss of business resulting in decreased earnings. The bears on tbe mar ket were the only ones able to find sufficient reasons for these opinions. The -stock closed steady at a fraction above the lowest point of the decline. The advance in petroleum was due entirely to statistical conditions, which show a rapid growth In consumption and a steady depletion in stocks. In view of this fact, and of the ad mitted scarcity of the product, and with no prospect of making good the deficiency from territory where operations are now in progress, tbe opinion widely obtains that the present ad vance will not be checked until the price reaches SI 25 or Jl 60. Statistics favor the latter figure. Those especially interested in procuring a change ot moving day from April 1 to May 1, to avoid the Inclement weather which generally prevails at the former date, should begin to stir themselves, as time is passing and the fate ful period is drawing near. So far landlords have been very slow abont signing tbe agree ment which has been drawn up by Secretary Glonlnger, of the real estate agents' organiza tion. This indifference is somewhat surprising, since it is known that nearly all of them favor tbe change. It would be cause for regret if the movement were to fall through after reaching a stage which demands but little additional effort to carry It to completion. Tenants, who are prin cipally Interested in the change, should take up the subject and insist upon landlords Bigning the agreement. The change Is necessary and should be made. THE PAMC 0YEB. Philadelphia Gas Company Stock Improv. log Tbe Traction Totally Ignored. So far as business was concerned yesterday's stock market was a failure, the only sale"being 10 shares of Philadelphia Gas, but what it lacked in activity it gained in strength, nearly the entire active list being firm and higher, the it PmSBTJR& DISPATCH, only notable oxception being Switch and Signal, for which IS was the best bid. Philadelphia Gas was decidedly stronger and very sparingly off ered It sold in a small way at 80 at which figure several hundred shares could have been marketed, but holders, having in some measure recovered from their scare, concluded to hold on a little longer, as the tide had turned in their favor. It was the opinion ot some that the object of the only seller of the stock was to start a movement which would enable him to load up, being on the short side. The only other featnre of the market was the Indifference with which the tractions were re garded The legal fight in which these com panies are engaged has dissipated the desire of investors to dabble in their stocks.

Railroad Shares Almost Featureless The Bank Statement Makes No Im pression A Heavy Close at About Bottom Prices. New Yobs, October 28. The stock market to-day, while comparatively active for a Satur day, was wlthou( general featuro of interest, and except for one or two stocks shows bnt slight changes as tbe result ot the day's trad ing. The activity was confined to spots, and while the general temper of the room was bullish tbe traders were sellers of the market and such advances as were made were after ward neutralized. St. Paul and Union Pacific were most active, but their fluctuations like those of all otthe active stocks were fractional only, and the only features of tbe day were Michigan Central, which, after a long period of stagnation, suddenly sprang into activity and scored a marked advance, and Denver, 1889. Texas and Ft. Worth, which continued Its re-. markable upward movement. The bullish feeling of yesterday lasted over till this morning, and first prices were gener ally from to percent higher than last evening's figures, though Oregon Transcontin ental was an exception, being down K, at 88. Sugar was weak, and the further advances in the regular list were confined to small frac tious, and the npward movement soon came to an end, after which prices sagged away slowly, though Michigan Central rose from 98 to 84: Denver. .Texas and Fort Worth from 31 to 32, and Texas Pacific from 20 to 2L There were some other strong spots in the list, but their movements were small and unim portant, wbllesngar dropped about 1 per cent. The bank statement seemed to have no effect, and the market finally closed quiet and rather heavy at about the lowest prices In most stoczs. Michigan Central is up and Denver, Texas and Fort Worth 1, but the other changes are all for insignificant amounts. Railroad bonds were comparatively active, and tbe sales for the two hours reaoned 885, 000, out of which tbe Fort Worth and Denver firsts contributed $112,000, and the Texas Pa cific seconds $111,000. The general tone of tbe dealings was no more than firm.thnugb several Issues showed marked strength. Sales of bonds for the week, 6,837,000, against $1,557,000 last week.
