DBEBSED BEEF IN ACUTE DEMAND
Office or Pittsburq Dispatch, i
TUESDAY. July 16. 1S90. t
From almost every quarter of the land
comes the report ol a short frnit crop.
Michigan and New York were depended on
lor an average apple crop, but late advices
from those States indicate that there will
not be more than one-fourth the average
crop this season. This proves that the great
npple sections of the country will have very
little, it any, to spare for the outside world.
In this section the fruit crop has been in the
main a failure. The small fruits, such as
berries and cherries, bare In this section been
far below the avcrago In yield. Fruit preservers
have discovered this fact by dear experience,
and have not been ablo to socuro their usual
Latost advices from Maryland and Dolawaro
tiro that tho peach crop In that territory Is a
practical failure. Krult packers In Maryland
ndvlso their customers here that their occupa
tlun Is cone tor this year, and that only a jrry
small quantity of plo peaches, which are of in
ferior quality, will bo packed this caon. Call
fornla Is the only soctlon of the country where
the fruit crop will romo up to the average.
Hupplies rnii that noun o will fall far short of
tneellnc demands. A laiRwmuiibrr of Califor
nia fruit shippers hao withdrawn prices lor
futuro dellvory In the past few week, and
those that liirmsh price am 'M to 3., per
dosen higher In tbclr otters In tho past SO da).

It Is about as certain as anything In the
future can bo that cauned fruits will bo 60 per
cent higher next tall than theywero last sea
Bon. A leading wholesale grocer said to-day:
"In my opinion the price of canned fruits the
coming fall will bo at the very Uast 60 per cent
higher than they have been In tho past ten
In the same connection this representative of
one ot our leading firms said: ''Our midsum
mer trade It fully up to what It was a jear ago.
About tho only marked difference between
now and then Is the lower price or
luear. Dnrinc the first half of last
year we made nice profits on sugar.
Ilut in the last half there were heavy
losses to those who carried large stocks, so that
the gains were offset by ibe loi.-es. And. of
late, the dnlt of markets has been In a down
ward direction, so that Jobbers have realized
little or no profit in the long run. The more
we sold the worse It was fur us. llie sugar sales
for the past half year or more only maut
heavy losses as wo operated on a declining
market. The handsome profits of a year ago
have been about obliterated by recent losses.
Ordinarily at this season ot the year
tucar reaches its highest prices.
While there has been an upward movement
the past weelc.it has been so slight that job
bers find very few crumts of comfort in the
situation. The great scarcity of fruit this sea
son has very much lessened the demand for
sugar, and, as a proof, volume of sales are be
low the average for this time of the j ear. Wo
are not sorry over diminished volume of sale?,
as there is little in the sugar trade but work at
Dsmsad For Dressed Menu.
A representative of tho Chicago dressed
1eef industry. In an Interview to-day, said:
The total sales of dressed beeves in this city
will not be far f ram 1,000 head per week. I am
confident that SU0 Chicago dressed beeves are
handled here every week, and the Herr's Isl
and abattoir slaughters from 150 to 200 head of
cattle every week. Expensive Ice this season
baa forced many of the butchers who hereto
fore slaughtered tlieir own cattle, to depend on
dressed beef. Our own establishment has been
handling about 125 bead of Chicago dressed
beeves, and 100 head of sheep and lambs
weekly, of late, and we have little difficulty
disposing of this amount of stock. Less grade
beeves, or what are know n in the trade as
grassers, have declined fully SO per cent in the
past few weeks, but choice grain fed stock are
firm at old prices."
Our ice expenses have trebled as compared
with last season. Last summer at this time
nur expenses for ice were about 200 weekly.
'o the expense, la fully $600 per week. Our
f ncreased trade lvhowever, a fair offset to this
increased expense. Butchers who do a omall
business are depending on dressed beef more
than they ever did before. Hence there are
more who handle dressed meat this season than
at any time in the past." For the same rea
sons whicn help the dressed beef industry
canned meats are unusually active.
The picnic season is now at its height, and
canned meats aro in extraordinary demand.
The Increased expense of preserving fresh
meats, owing to the high priced ice, has very
much stimulated demand for all canned meats.
Sealers in this line report trade was never bet
ter, and that volume of business this season
will show an Increase of at least 25 per cent

Of Denefll lo Thousands.
'sick benefit, funeral aid, death benefit and
other kindred societies have multiplied with
great rapidity the past 10 years. As they are
confined to those who are in the humbler walks
ot life, the good tboy have done is Incalculable

en families and inspiring thoso who are fortun
ate enough in being members with a courage
which might not exist in their hearts without
them. Tho members of these organizations
will be glad to learn that Hon. Robert P. Por
ter. Superintendent of the Eloventb Census,
will endeavor to secure the statistics of the no
ble work these associations aro doing, and It is
safe to say that no other branch of the census
will be moro interesting.
The business of gathering the data has been
placed in charge of Mr. Charles A, Jonney,
special agent of the insurance division, 53 Will

tbrongbout the United States, whether incor
porated or private, should assist by sending to
him the address of their principal officers.
Composition With Creditors.
Among recent decisions of the Supreme
Court affecting real estate and commercial in
terests was one wherein it was beld that a de
fendant who seeks to defeat a clear legal liabil
ity on the ground that plaintiff has signed a
general composition of creditors, must prove
performance of every condition on which the
effect of said composition is limited. The fact
that a party enters up a mechanics' lien for
materials furnished does not release the pur
chaser from personal liability for such materi
als, and hence the failure of a holder of such
a lien to sign an agreement of creditors, which
provides thai it shall not be binding unless all
creditors sign, is fatal, and a party who signs
the same is not bonnd thereby.

about COO feet of frontage on Schcnley Park at
a cost of $5,000 to 10.000 an acre. Mr. Howley
said yesterday: "We bought for speculation.
In four or five years I think our land will bring

not asmuch as has been re.ilizod on park prop

Stock trading was on a strictly summer basis
yesterday, there being only four transactions,
aggregating 92 shares. The only active proper

many buying orders, but they were being held
back in expectation of lower figures.
There were a number of price changes, but
they were for insignificant fractions. Closing
prices, as compared with those of the previous
day, showed concessions in Central Traction,
Pleasant Valley,' and Electrlo, and gains in
Citizens' Traction and Luster. The rest of the

Wall Street Bulls bill! Confident of a Ko-
vlvnl of Speculation, Now That
the Silver Question Is Oat
of tho Way.
New York, July 15. Thofalth of tho bulls In
the power of tho sliver bill to revive the almost
moribund speculation was shown again in the
firm to strong front presented by tho stock
market this morning, but tbe conservative
spirit cropped out In tho dullness which con
tinued without break throughout the day, as
tbe effect of tbe fear of further gold shipments
this week. Theso factors at present seem to
control tbe course of the market both as to
prices and activity.
The raid upon llock Island is without expla
nation. Tbe feeling upon tho Grangers is im
proving and is based upon tbe expectation of
increased earnings from tbo larger crops soon
to come to market pver those lines. Thoso
stocks show all tho feature there Is in the mar
ket at present, and continuo to show tho most
firmness, though subjected to some pressure.
The general list throughout tbe day failed to
movo, but the opening gains wero sufficient to
cause most stocks to close slightly higher than
last evening. Tbo pressure upon Sugar was on
tbo circulation ot rumors pointing to tbe
further litigation and possible disruption of tbe
truit. It is tbe only stock which shows a ma
terial decline, its loss being 1 per cent. Rail
road bnuds showed a little animation, and tbo
sales ot all Issues reached 81,021,000, which was
distributed among a greater uumber of Issues
than usual of lato while thoro was no feature
of iuterest. Tho tone remained firm, tbo, final
changes wero generally for insignificant frac
tions. St. Louis and New Orleans 6's rose 2 to
120. Government bonds bare been dull and
steidy. State bonds have been, dull, but firm.
The Pott says: According to tbe monthly
statement of the Treasury ot the United States

tion, was i55,ui9,SC0 in United States legal tend

treasury by the silver bill signed by tbe Presi

Monday attornoon last week's prices nere re

grade is firm at outside quotations. Prospects
are good for an advance in cheese at an early
day. Ohio shippers are ordorlng tbelr stock to
be withheld from market until better prices
can be obtained. It Is evident that the lowest
cheese price of the season has rbeen reached,
and that future changes will be toward a
higher level. Fresh nearby eggs are very
scarce and prices are steadily moving upward.
Cold storage eggs are firm at 18c, and chuloo
nearby stock at 20o per dozon. Potatoes are

sprnng the bull so badly that It began to leak. A
report reached the city to tbe effect that the
Blaine had sunl' with a large load of merchandise.
This proved to U false when Inquiry was made at
the wharf. T.ie ull was patehed aplmmedlately,
before much damage was done, and It un
loaded Its freight at Morzantonn and came
down to Brownsville, where It was docked.
It will be put In condition for resuming In the
