iSHht Decline in Business, but Prices
Well Maintained.
5a VERY ACTIVE WEEK AT CHICAGO
Some Anxiety In Kew York as to the Exact
X StawlitTofthe'Boom.
.,THE UPWARD TENDENCY OP VALUES
HMfTRAW-RETTEW.
- fl,i Vftlnmo nf imn Vneineea 4li f
,v -week shows a slight decline irom that of
ft several weeks past, but there are no indica-
tions ofany decline in prices. Markets are'
Terr firm for all grades of iron and steel;
in fact prices are fully as strong as they
were njweek ago. The quietness of the past
week is mainly due to the tact that con
sumers had stocked up largely when the
boom in iron started and that there is a
general disposition to clean up preparatory
to January settlements.
In last June gray forge iron was very
slow at $13 75 per ton. Now it is very firm
at 518 50 and all signs point to still higher
prices. Bessemer iron was hard to sell
In midsummer 'at $15 75. while now it is Terr
firm at 21 SQL Charcoal irons have undergone
very little change in the recent advance. The
advance in this graae of iron has not amounted
to over SI per ton since the lowest price of last
June Then No. I foundry was sold at S22 SO,
and now the pnee is 23 50.
THE STEEIi BAIL BOOM.
The advance in steel rrils on the present
boom has so far been close to 110 per ton. Abont
one-third of this advance goes to tonnage
labor. The Edgar Thomson Steel Worts aro
producing close to 1.100 tons every 2-J hours, and
,tbe advance of $10 per ton must furnish a com
fortable profit, not to speak of profits before
' the iron boom.
, Among the features of the iron and steel
trade worthy of note is the fact that notwith
standing tue aavance on sui craucs jjiuuutiiuu
has not materially increased so far. The
capacity of steel production has been worked
up to its limits for some time past, and it will
be impossible for some time to come to produce
an overplus of stock. The Edgar Thomson are
now sold ahead ior months. All iron and steel
products are at this date strong and firm, and a
year of unwontedjictivlty is certainly before us
in both lines.

ANXIETY AT NEW luEK.
Some Fears an to tue Permanence of the
High Prices.
rSTXCUL TELEOEAJt TO THI DISPATCH.!
New Yoke, December 20. The extraordi
nary advances made in iron ore, Bessemer and
fonndry pig, charcoal iron and in steel blooms,
billets and slabs are not regarded as wholly re
assuring by the iron trade at large. The
anxiety to liberally cover requirements
Sot the ensuing year is .the basis
of the unusual activity and high
prices at this time. Users of all kinds of iron
and steel material desire and Intend, so far as
it is in their power, to know what raw
material will cost them. Cleveland ore
transactions are reported to foot up
nearly 3.500,000 tons "for 1S90. Gogebic
Bessemer ores have sold as high as $8 at that
point. Menominee Bessemers, S6 to $6 25. Bes
semer pig has reached S25 at Western dis
aJtributroiT points. Alabama car wheel iron hsc
veold in Chicago markets atS25toS2S. South
ern ironmakers are announcing quotations for
1890 at $19 75 to 20 25 for No. I delivered at
Chicago- Lake Superior charcoal is held ashigh
as $22 to S22 60 at that point. Bnyers of steel bil
lets and blooms are endeavoring to cover re
quirements for from three to four months
ahead, and in their urgency for supplies prices
are held atontside figures, aud capacity is over
sold. A vast amount of new business
is coming in sight, and the possibili
ties of a general advance in quotations
in January or February aro contem
plated with mora or less favor, according
to the position of the observer. Very
heavy contracts have been placed through
out the East and West for Bes
semer iron. Merchant bars were ad
vanced this week at Philadelphia to2 cents.
Neutral gray forge is held at 518 to $18 50 at
Pittsburg and Bessemer pig at $24 to $25. There
is an active demand for merchant iron abd
nails in Western Pennsylvania, and steel rails
are quoted strong and active at $35 to $36.
In several markets users of forge iron have
succeeded In placing large orders fur delivery
during the next three or tour months at what
niav under the circumstance be regarded as
reasonable prices. The plate and structural
iron mills will be crowded through the winter
at outside prices. Inquiries for merchant steel,
sheet iron plates and tubes, as well as for
barbed wire iron and steel nails all indicate
an unusual demand as probable during the
winter months. In steel rails nothing of a de
cided importance has transpired. Sales for
ISMloot up nearlv 75,000 tons. Official state
ments show that shipments this year foot up
1,116,017 tons, which is about equal to the ship
ments up to same time last year. The
gross production for 18S9 will foot up
about 1.500,000 tons. The iron and
steel making capacity is being strained to the
utmost, and extensions and improvements are

A Light Demand Jnst Now, but No Weak
ness In tbe Market
SPECIAI. TKLEGBAJt TO THI DISPATCH.!
El. Louis. December 2a In their weekly
iron circular Rogers, Brown & Meacbam say:
The demand for Southern coke irons in this
market has been light, but there are no ele
ments of weakness in tbe situation. Con
sumers are unwilling to stock up until after
January 1, bat a good trade is looked for then.
Offerings from furnaces are limited, and prices
are well sustained, although some specu
lative lots have been placed at less
than current quotations. Lake Superior char
coals have been advanced over $1 per ton, and
several furnaces are out of the market on ac
count of heavy orders booked for tbe next
'three months' delivery. Southern charcoals
have advanced 70 cents. The Missouri furnaces
art reported to have made heavy sales to Chi
cago buyers, and are now holding their brands
firmly at fig re given below. We quote for

An Active Week at Chi en to.
f rrClAL TKLBOBAH lO TDZ DISFATCIM
CHICAGO, Xecember. 20. Commenting on the
state of the iron market, Rogers, Brown 4 Co
riy: T'herels perhaps more activity in the Chi
cago market at the close of this week, so far as
general buyers are concerned, than whave yt
seen. The sharpadvance in Lake Superior chap
coal and coke irons has convinced buyers that
w?asft 4" -t tj ' i V,.' mi ft flSiffii YJtShtsiiiiiflSAoKSXr m

r-
the higher prices ruling -hare come to
stay for a time at least, and that still
higher values are probable. This adds to
free buying. Good irons are Increasingly
scarce. Old material Is Strong and in light sup
ply. The continual enlargement of manufacij
uring plants broadens out the demand, and if
there is to bo any backward movement for a
time It is hard to see where it will come from.
Good strong No. 1 foundry is now worth $20 to
$21 here, and L. 8. charcoal iron is held firm at
$23, but with no sales at that figure yet reported.
An Upward Tendency In Values.
.SrEClAL TELEGRAM TO TUX DtSPATCK.1
CINCINNATI, December 20. Rogers, Brown
&. Co-'s iron circular says: The upward ten
dency in values continues in all branches of
the pig iron market. During the week there
has been a further stiffening in prices of North
ern mill and foundry irons. Lake Superior
charcoal, and all products of lake ores. This
grows out of the -extensivo early buying of
lako ores for next season at an advance of
about SI a ton over last season's closing prices.
There has been no further advance in South
ern coke irons, which bavo been ruling rela
tively higher than Northern lions for
some weeks past. Very liberal sales are
reported, however, on the basis of price es-
lauusueo. Dy tue warrant uuyiug iu i uvcuiucw
Southern makers do not desire to see any fur
ther advance, believing it will stimulate too
many new enterprises In their district. Already
there is a generous crop of them started. Ohio
furnaces generally are heavily Bold and are very
slow to name any prices on round lots for fu
ture delivery. Consumption continues very
heavy in all lines.

AN APPOINTMENT IN DANGEE.
Opposition to tbe Confirmation of Amor
Smith, of Cincinnati.
WASHTNGTOir, December 2a The refusal of
the Senate -to copfirm Amor Smith as Collector
of Customs at Cincinnati may be still another
sequel to the ballot-box forgery. Smith's nom
ination is now hung up in the Senate Commit
tee on Finance, at the request of Senator Sher
man, who is a member of the committee, and a
favorable report on it to the Senate will depend
upon the result of tbe Congressional inquiry
into the ballot-box forgery. Smith's name was
connected with the matter as a go-between, and
if investigation establishes the fact that be was
not in any manner a party to the forgery his
confirmation will follow. If he is guilty he will
have to suffer the consequences.
Congressman Butterworth, when accused of
fighting bmith's confirmation to-day, said: "I
am not antagonistic to Smith now and I shall
not be unless tbe Congressional investigation of
this ballot-box outrage establishes his connec
tion with it. If it does I shall fight his confirma
tion tooth and toenail, and do it openly, too."

BDSI BUTLER C0SEALS A BIG PLANT
Butler Is looking up as a manufacturing
center. There has just been organized there,
and chartered, an enterprise of considerable
magnitude called the Butler Salt and
Chemical Company. The capital is about
(300,000, and the object is to manufacture
articles in which the company has several
lines of specialties in chemicals and other
valuable products of a sfmjlar kind. For
this purpose a number of fine buildings are
being erected and almost finished, covering
several acres of ground, on which there are five
or six flowing salt wells. ,
The company has been organized on a very
substantial basis, largely through the efforts of
the President Mr. Joseph Brittain, of Butler,
and Messrs. Joseph Painter and James W.
Drape & Co., of Pittsburg, and it offers to its
lucky stockholders the prospect of very re
munerative dividends. The company is al
ready in receipt of orders sufficient to keep the
w orks employed for several months.
A meeting of the Board of Directors will be
held at Butler on Thursday next for the pur
pose of perfecting arrangements for putting
tbe works id operation, which will be in a few
weeks.
Tho natural attractions of the SOuthside for
residence purposes are causing quite a move
ment in real estate circles over there. Beltz
hoover is a point of great interest, although
other districts Mt. Washington, for instance
are not neglected. The new inclinaand prom
ise of rapid transit are important factors in the
movement.
A prominent Southside capitalist has so much
faith in tbe permanency of the boom on that
side of the river that he is negotiating for 70
building lots in the outskirts of Beltzhoover.
The fact was mentioned yesterday, but details
could not be given. It has been learned since
that the purchase, if consummated, of which
there is scarcely a doubt, will be for invest
ment. A four or five-roomed house will be
erected on each lot, and rented at a moderate
price, so as to secure a good class of tenants.
Work will begin as early in the spriug as pos
sible. This will be the largest building job
ever undertaken on the Southside, and the 0
houses will be quite an acquisition to tbe com
munity. The cost of the ground and improve
ments will approximate $150,000.
Referring to reports of the organization of
national banks in (Lawrencerille, East Liberty
and Wilkinsburg, a Fourth avenue financier
remarked yesterday: "These people may mean
business, but I doubt it. If they are practical
business men tbey know, or onght to know,
that there are too many banks here now, and
Some of them have hard sledding. Banking
competition is greater in Pittsburg than in any
other city In the country. As an illustration
A Chicago banker told me not long ago that
his institution made about $50,000 a year selling
premium on Eastern exchange. There is not a
bank in Pittsburg that makes enough out of
exchange to pay the salary of one clerk. This
is not very encouraging for new banks.
"A better way wonld be to remove two or
three of the city banks qut there. This would
be easier and more economical than to start
new ones. It would ease np things in the city,
and satisfy the ambition of the Hast Enders to
have banks of their own. One or two good
banks out there might do well, -provided they
could retain their old business and get the
local patronage."
A Connellsville authority says of tbe coke
trade: While it is active, the shipments for the
last week were several hundred cars less than
those of the week previous. This falling on is
attributedto the fact that the furnace compan
ies have become well supplied by the heavy
shipments during tho last few weeks, as tbey
were the largest ever known in tbe region. Tbe
Illinois Steel Company, abont tha largest con
sumer of Connellsville coke, report their coke
supply as good. The Eastern and Pitts
burg trades are likewise well supplied.
New cars of the Frick and McClure com
panies are arriving daily, but the Stewart Iron
Company's now lot of 100 have not yet put in
appearance. Work is progressing on new ovens.
Contractor Sbeehan has 42 of tbe new addi
tional ovens to the Redtop plant at Tarrs com
pleted, and the company will fire them shortly.
Hostetter, Uppincott, Frick and McClure are
having ovens completed daily. The Leisener
ing works No. 1, 500 ovens, which was idle a
couple davs last week on account of strike, is
again in full operation. Fayette and Mahoning
plants, numbering 230 ovens, are still idle, and
the number of idle ovens is tbe same as last
week, about 400. Fart of the Standard Coke
Works are idle on account of the slope being
burned Tuesday night.
The shipments last week decreased 530,cars
from tbe previous week, and the total output
was 130,U0 tons compared with 142,650 tons of
the week before. Shipments averaging about
1,230 cars per day, with a total of 7,395 cars were
distributed as follows: To points west of Pitts
burg, 4,525 cars; to Pittsburg and river points,
1,470 cars; to points east of Pittsburg, 1,400
cars. Former prices are still quoted: Fur
nace coke, $1 75; foundry, $2 05: crashed, $2 55.
Tbe sale of the Bennett building, on Fulton
and Nassau streets. New York, has been talked
of for some weeks, and it is rumored that the
purchase price was $1,000,000, but the parties m
interest decline to state the amount. The
price, for some unusual reason, as not named
in the deed, and it was understood that it was
to remain a secret between buyer and seller.
The building was bought by John Fettit, of
Orange, N.J. He has told bis friends that it
is his purpose to make of his new purchase an
office building which shall be second to none
in the city.
The building was the personal property of
James Oordon Bennett, Jr., he having bonght
it at the partition sale of his father's estate in
ISS4. He will continue to occupy the basement
for extra boilers and the dynamos which gen
erate the electricity to supply tho lights iu the
Herald building, thus becoming a tenant of
Mr. Fettit's. Why Mr. Bennett thus disposed
of the property is not known.
BTOCKS IMPE0YED.
A Better Feeling Among Brokers, bnt Busi
ness Still Slack.
Tho characteristics of the stock market yes
terday were good feeling and a moderate busi
ness. Sales were 1G0 shares, of which 110 were
Philadelphia Gas and 50 Central Traction. The
former opened steady at 29, but weakened in
the afternoon to 29K on a sale of 100 shares,
and closed at that price bid. The tractions
were a shade stronger, as were Luster, Elec
tric and Plate Glass. Tbe latter closed at 100
asked. With a few exceptions tbe entire list
was stronger, indicating that orders are coming
in more freely.

STOCKS STBOMEB.
They Sag OflT nLIttlo Under the Pressure of
TIeht Money, but More Than
Recover Losses..
Nevv Yobk, December 20. The stock mar
ket was more active and decidedly strong dur
ing the greater portion of the day, and although
realizing, sagged off toward the close Several
material advances were scored as tbe resnlt of
the day's trading. Tho temper of the market
was rather reactionary at the opening, dullness
and stagnation being the principal features;
but- tbe reports of the remaining Vanderbilt
roads, with tbe extra dividends, soon set things
going, aud activity and buoyancy took the
place of the stagnation of tbe early hours.
Missouri Pacific and Western again led the
market, and at its highest point it showed a
gain of 1 per cent over its last night's figure.
The settlement with tbe Kansas and lexas
upon a basis of mutual advantage was the im
pelling cause, although even it aid not move
until tbe news from tbe Grand Central depot
was received. Those who pretend to know
expect that a further advance will take place.
The Vanderbilts were the conspicuous feature
of tbe market, and from that on especially dis
played marked strength, though, like tbe oth
ers all of tbe improvement could not bo held
at tbe dose. The Grangers also came to tbe
front, and Burlington led the advance among
them, and with St. Paul was more active than
for some time. The Coal stocks were sluggish
and considerable pressure was brought to bear
upon them in the early dealings, resulting in a
fractional decline, with Lackawanna leading.
They became stronger with the rest of the list,
however, and'the early losses were wiped out,
but in tbe upward movement met with consid
erable of a check when the money rates ad
vanced, and during the afternoon money was
up to 9 per cent, inducing realizations on a
liberal scale, and the reaction from the best
prices reached from X to IJi per cent.
Owing to the increased Interest In railroad,
shares, the unlisted department was quite
neglected to-day. Sugar opened up 1JJ per
cent, at 59, but retired to 56, and thereafter
fluctuated within those limits, becoming very
dull in the afternoon. The close wan. quiet and
rather heavy at the reaction. Almost the en
tire active list is higher to-nigbt, and Jersey
Central is up 1. Missouri Pacific 1, Burling
ton and Quincy 1, and Canada Soutuern 1 per
Beyond tbe activity in Kansas and Texas 6s
and tbe strength in the Iron Mountain 5s, there
was little feature to the dealings in railroad
bonds to-day. There -was a firm tone, and the
business done was as a rule well and widely
distributed, the Kansas and Texas 6s contrib
uting $118,000 to the day's total of $LS96,00a

Opportunities for Securing Fresh Vegetables
Never Better at This Time or Tear
Christmas Turkey Promises to
be Uncomfortably High.
Office oFPrrrsBtnto Dispatch,!
Fbidat, December 20. 1889. f
It is very rare that fresh vegetables are to
be found on tbe stalls in as good shape at
this time of the year as they are this season.
An old-time dealer in this line said to-day:
"I can remember no season like this. We
are able to furnish fresh tomatoes, cauli
flower and string beans, cucumbers, and, in fact,
about everything wanted for a sumptuous
Christmas dinner almost as well as we could
when tbe season for these things was at its
height. Ot course it requires mora money to
secure the stuff now, but we have it, and to tbe
class with whom money is no consideration the
opportunities tor securing a variety for Christ
mas dinner have not been so good for many
years as now."
Choice poultry tends npward as the holidays
approach. Turkeys are fully 5c per pound
higher than tbey were a week ago. and dealers
look for still higher prices next week. The
Christmas turkey that is not alreadyengaged
may go to 30c per pound. Last New Year's 35c
per pound was paid in thoDiamond Markets for
choice turkeys.
ThO condition of weather the past few weeks
has prevented shipments of poultry from tbe
West, and it is now too late for the large ship
pers to flood the markets before Christmas,
whatever the weather may be.
Florists report trade at its best. It is Im
possible to fix prices in this line, as everything
depends on weather for the next tew days. At
present weather is favorable for the develop
ment of buds, but it is Impossible to tell what a
day may bring forth, and while we quote prices
the same as last week these will be a poor cri
terion in case of sharp frosty weather between
now and Christmas. Last Christmas supplies
fell far below demafW, and American Beanty
roses went up to 1 50 apiece, which was the
price paid by our florists hereto New York
florists.
The demand for holiday mistletoe, bouquet
greenand Christmas trees was never better
than It is to-day. Maryland and Virginia are
the chief sources of supply for our holly and
mistletoe. Bouquet green comes from Wis
consin and Michigan, and has of late years be
come a prominent industry of the half-breeds.
Our Christmas trees are crown in laree ouanti-
tles uv-the nurseries adjoining the Schenley
Park. Those prouucea in tne nurseries are
much neater and command better prices than
those gathered from, the woods. The range of
prices for Christmas trees is from 50c up to $2.
Following "are tbe retail prices of market
basket filling as fnrnlshed by leading retail
dealers :
The best cuts of tenderloin steak range
from 20 to 25c, with last figure for very

Wheat Fairly Active, Bat Prices Give
Way a Little Cora and Oats
In the Rut Pork

Chicago Wheat A good speculative busi
ness was transacted to-day, and tha feeling
quite strong at times and weak at others. The
situation generally is not ot a character to pro
duce strength, but there was not enough out
side trade to bull the market, and the local
crowd was alieady pretty well loaded up with
tbe long wheat, so that they were not buying as
heavily as during yesterday, and each attempt
to sell caused weakness. A prominent local
trader of the day sold freely at the higher
prices and bought again on the weak spots.
Tho opening was about Ho higher than
yesterday, (hen eased oH c, under
rather free selling, again recovered,

caused a decline of He, then ruled steadier,
and the closing was c lower than yesterday.
Outside news generally favored better prices,

For tbe fire days this week the receipts at
Minneapolis and Duluth aggregated 902,000
bushels, against 1,688,000 tbe corresponding
period last week.

Oats were quiet and easier. There was a
moderate Inquiry for January and It held

Country Produce Jobblnc Prices.
Everything in produce lines is quiet. Friday
Is looked forward to by commission men as the
best day of tbe week. This Friday has been
altogether disappointing to the trade. Dairy
products are slow, but prices are unchanged.
Eggs fail to come up to their usual market
standard. Hens are getting in their work far
In advance of their ordinary time by reason of
spring-like weather. The demand for fancy
apples and sweet potatoes is strong. Cranber
ries are very firm, at the recent advance. Poul
try supply is not up to demand. The Christ
mas turkey promises to be higher than it has
been for years. They Whose Christmas turkey
was contracted for weeks ago at a stipulated
price were wise. All poultry has advanced
since Thanksgiving.

Groceries.
Sugar is very weak, and another drop is in
prospect. Coffee options are still tending up
ward, but packages fail to rise. Tbe movement
of general groceries is quiet, as it always is
prior to Januarsettlements. The disposition
to reduce stocks and begin tbe new year with a
minimum quantity of goods on hand has a
marked effect in curtailing trade in all jobbing
lines.
