An Interesting Comparative Table Cover ing; Coal Shipments. BUTE OF ACTIVITY AT OTHER FOISTS office of Pittsburg Dispatch, i Friday. April 10. J Eat Iko axd Steel Trade during tbe week shows au improvement not a large one, but still au improvement. Everything must have a start, and it is to be hoped that the present improvement, al though a small one, will be the beginning cf something more extensive. Prices of iron and steel have been on the down grade for some time. It certainly looks at this writing that bottom prices have been reached, and that from this time forth bet ter prices, a larger demand and an im proved condition of affairs may be the rule, aot the execution. Our report to-day shows sales ol certain zradt-3 above those made last week. The demand for Bessemer was larger than for m.ius ti'ua past. Another very promising leatuu- was that certain iron firms, undoubtedly well inforned, have within a few tld5 purchased several rood sized blocks of JiesscLier pig for April and May delivery. 1 tiis uiai be taken as hint that present prices are considered aw down, and that purchasers may di-co rr to their cost that dcla s are some times ver costii. Another thing, sit down and count the c st ot oie. limestone, coke and labor s.nd on wil! soon make up jour mind that raw Iror m being old at a icasouably low figure.

Most of the Sheuaugo and Mahoning valley f jrua-es are ttill out of blast, those beiug cn jrag 1 on picvious contracts not yet filled. The Koik ot non iii the "valle" is said to be light. '. ue coke question is still unsettled and the ttrike still on, though works are starting up wirb a hunted number of men. The right has been a bitter one, and just how it is going to i.d i what no person can predict, as both sides Ceiii as determined as ever. Plttbburg's Product Keeps Ahead. Pittsburg City furnace-made iron commands the highest price. Wo learned of sales of Cray lorge at S13 75 at the furnaces.

The Chicago Market Is Devoid of Any Feature of Special Interest. TrlCTAL TltEGBAM TO TUB DISPATCt.1 Chicago, April 10, Rogers. Brown & Her Vtin saj: "The Chicago pig iron markettn tinues to be devoid of features of special inter est. Few sales of any size have been made, though considerable carload business has been carried on. Foundries ccnerally report slack work, and consumers are indisposed to bey for anything but to cover their immediate require ments. Prices remain practically unchanged, though some special lots of coke iron are being offered at cut figures, as the holders desire to realize. ly&kc Superior charcoals are still in small de mand, but there are some inquiries from con sumers wbu consider, the uieient market a good one on which to buy as a matter of specu lation. The feeling exists in all quarters that one of th most essential things toward bring ing greater activity is a eood rnn in the way of crops, which will be likely to cause railroads to place orders for tolling stock and supplies, which will start activity in all lines. SOKE 0HKK.KCTQ HEWS. A Large Pennsylvania Order Pott Idfo Into tho Philadelphia Market. SFBrtAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.! Philadelphia, April 10. No material change has occurred in the iron market tbo past week, but an early improvement is ex pected. In fact, th first step in this direction has already been made by an order from the Pennsylvania Railroad Company on Wednes day for steel rails, aggregating 20,000 tons, which was divided among the three great Pennsylvania mills on its main line. The mar ket price. S30 per ton, was paid. This Is the first cheering news we have been able to givo since the market began its retrograde move ment, and we look unon it as an early resump tion to activity, if no't Increased rates. Thirty dollars will proDablv continue the market price for this staple, for President Roberts is too shrewd a financier to pay any excess in price Just wLat influence this purchase will have upon the market in general can only be sur mised, but e believe it will be favorable. The railroads of the country ha7e been holding back their orders in the hope that lower prices nnchtbe obtained, but the action of the Penn sylvania will probably show them thatiurtber waiting is useless and induce them to also place their orders at an early day. THE OUTCOME DUBIOUS. The Old Situation or Slany Weeks Past Pre vails at St. Louis. SPECIAL TELECRiMTO TKE DISPATCH.l St. Louis, April 10. Rogers, Brown & Meacham say: The same situation prevails in thts market tbat has existed for some time. Sales for the past week were limited both in number and size. Consumers seem to have a lair supply to their requirements, which in themselves are not large. As to the outlook, it is difficult to determine just what the outcome will be, bnt the scarcity of Southern iron and the unwillingness on the part of the furnaces to shade prices seems to point to a stiifer market in the near future.

Rogers, Biown Co. say: The past week has been only a repetition of the one preceding. The general conditions of the market are unchanged, and in view of the unsettled state of labor no marked degree of improvement can be expected this month. If tbe miners' strike does not take place on May 1 it is hoped tbat business will revive. It is evident that the furnaces do not intend to accumulate stocks of iron to glut the market, for tbe indicated capacity of coke furnaces now in blast is only about half what, it was iu December last. A number of consumers have been making inquiries for extended deliveries, but only a limited quantity of iron has been placed. Prices remain the same as last teck. Metal Market.

Butter and Egcs Lower and Meats of All Kinds Advancing. In the line of market basket tilling butter and eggs are lower than last week, while meats and poultry show an inclination to go up higher. Lake salmon are in fair supply, and demand is good. Mackinac trout are on the stalls, for the first tlmo this season, within tho past week. Of Eastern fish, shad are in fair tupply, but high in pries. Oysters Kill be at an end next week. Home-raised vegetables will be nearly a month later this season than tbe aver age year, owing to adverse weather. Neville island gardeners report a very backward sea son. March furnished very few suuny days, such as producers of earlv garden stuff most earnestly long for. In ordinary seasons a fair supply of home-raised garden stuff is to be had in the early part of April. But so far little or none has been offered. Florists report active demand for their products.

Tue market was unchanged in any way THE HINTS TO BUILDERS. Land Companies and Their Methods Briefly Considered. HOW TO HANDLE ACREAGE. Eeport That Mr. Westinshouse Has Issued a Circular in Kew York. OFFICE AND STREET NEWS AXD GOSSIP There are a number of land companies in this city operating under a number of meth ods, and alter an existence of one to three years, The Dispatch may be pardoned for venturing an opinion as to which of the plans of operation have been the most suc cessful. There are three distinct features in the plotting and selling of land, two of which have been notably successful, while the third seems to be antagonized by the re deeming features of the other two and there by suffers. The most popular one for the masses, and the one that brings most money in the short est space of time, is the purchase ai.d plot ting of acreage and its sale on the install ment plan. Thousands of lots have been sold in. the suburbs within the past three years on monthly payments of 55 on a lot that cost from 5150 to $300. and" they have been paid for as well as purchased. A lot at this price, on these terms, and within the city limits, is just what the mechanic and workincman wants, and he buys it and pays for it without realizing that he has made any sacrifices, whereas if he had to pay one-third cash and the balance in one and two years he would not buy at all. Manv persons who never bad a thouebt of own ing their own home have been struck with the advantages this method offers, and they in vested for the future Unfortunately this class of property at these prices has been practically abiorbed and sola off. The next most popular plan is, the plotting of land and tbe erection of bouses. It has been very profitable to capitalists and very accept able to people in tbe middle walks of life. Very neat, substantial houses with nice lots have been put on the market at from S5.000 to 58,000 each, aud sold on-cash payments of S50O to 81,000, balance on long time, with Interest and Insur ance clauses. Everything of this kind that has been offered for sale has been sold, and the de mand has been greater than the supply. This plan differs from the other in only one particu lar, it takes more money to operate, and capi talists so operating are looking more to interest on money invested than to principal. The third plan is the purchase and plotting of high-priced ground and the sale of ft in the regular wav, one and two years, with one-third cash. These lots must be sold for SSOO to 81,000 each. They are too high for a poor man and too cheap tor the rich, and the middleman, always the most critical, is afraid of the neigh boihood. These lots sell, hut tbey drag, and the final outcome is not satisfactory. It the second plan could be followed so as to embrace five-roomed bouses-at a cost for lot and house of, say, 52,000. there would be a larce fortune iu it for the " projector. A nice five-roomed house, with front and rear porches, hall, etc., can be built for $1,500. This, on a lot costing S150. leaves a profit of EiJO.or about 20 per cent, to the builder. Business News and Gossip. Building operations in the suburbs have been resu med, and a large number of houses are be ing hurried to completion. Of the oO houses just finished by Mr. Charles Lockbart, on Dinwiddio street, 48 have been rented and occupied. An entire block on Smitbfield street, below Diamond, is on the market, or rather would be if a buyer were to come along. The statement that tho Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company had purchased the Blair Iron Works property, at Glenwood, turns out to be correct. It rounds out their former pur chase at tbe same place. There is a profusion in the Pittsburg mar kets of nearly all the spring luxuries. They come from the South. The local supply will be late, owing to the backward season. The Calvary Seminary deal is still In sus pense owing to a difference of opinion in regard to value, which Is likely to be bridged over in a short time. The largest of 32 mortgages on file yesterday was for JlS,00a Each of 14 was for less than 81.000. If Mr. Westingbouse has issued a statement, as reported, tbo electric muddle will soon be cleared up. The rumor that the control of the company bad passed out of his hands was not verified. According to a statement of the directors the indebtedness of the Philadelphia Company has been roduced S5OU.O00 since December 1. C. G.

A Report Obtains Currency That Mr. Wost inghonse Has Issued a Circular Ig norance of the Contents of the Document Causes a Halt. A fair volume of business was transacted in local stocks yesterday. Strong Eastern mar kets were the inspiring factors; -There were no depressing influences. Local buying orders were reported comiug out quite liberally, show ing awakening interest in speculation. Total sales were 590 shares, of which 200 were Elec tric The latter closed at tbe lowest point. What seemed to be a pretty well founded re port obtained circulation in business circles. It was to the effect tbat Mr. Westinghouse had jnst issued a circular in New York, detailing his procedure in negotiating the sale of the preferred stock of the company of which he is tbe head and announcingtbathehad secured all the money necessary to meet existing claims. At the office of tbe company it was tacitly admitted that such a document had been put out. This was accompanied by the statement that It would not reach Pittsburg before Mon day. If it was issued yesterday it is quite prob able tbat it will be hero to-day. A delay until Monday could oocur only through design. Brokers generally gave credence to the re port that a statement of some kind bad been made, but none of them had any definite idea of its contents. Their opinions were largely conjectural, and in the absence of positive knowledge they were reluctant about express ing opinions. Some regarded the claim of a successful issue as plausible and probable, while others were disposed to think tho docu ment treated Electric negotiations as a side issue, and dwelt upon a matter of far more im portance in its results as affecting tbe control of tbe company. Owing to tho uncertainty as to the contents of the circular neither Boston-nor Pittsburg evinced a disposition to do much in the stock. There the hichest was 14, the lowest 13 and tbo closing 13. Here the highest sale was IVi, and the lowest 13. The close was 13. There were no material changes iu tbe rest of the list. There were buyers for Philadelphia Gas and it sold up to 11, and finished on a bid of 11. The Tractions were rather more prom inent than usual in the bidding, and Pleasant Valley was a trifle stronger. The others ad hered to the previous day's quotations. Luster moved up a fraction, but the rest of the miners were featureless. Switch and Signal closed a good fraction better than the opening. Sales were: First call 100 Philadelphia Gas at 1 10 Luster at 11.

NEW YORK STOCKS. The Gould and the Atchison Shares the Most Prominent Features in an Active Market General Advances Fol lowed by a Reaction. New York, April 10. In the stock market points were freely distributed to buy tbe Gould stocks this morning, and those shares, espe cially Missouri Pacific, were more prominent in the market than for some time, though the cause ot the prominence of Missouri Pacific was to bo sought elsewhere. Reports were freely circulated that Mr. Gould, while in St. Louis, had made arrangements by which closer relations were to be established between the Missouri Pacific and the Atchison, and those stocks became the leading features of the day, both for strength and activity. They were, however, the only ones in which the buying was at an remarivaoie, anu it was evident mat while tbo bull leaders might not be looking for a reaction there was a willingness to let tho market take Its own course for a time. There was, especially iu tbe early trading, heavy selling for the long account, and much of It was belieyed to be for the account of the bulls, Chicago being credited with most of the sales in the Grangers. Tbe commission buy ing, however, was excellent, and, as the temper of the room was not positively reactionary, the strength of the list prevented any material de cline outside of the Industrials, Chicago Gas and Sugar each dropping away over 1 per cent, though each rallied smartly later in the day. .The sellingfor London account, howeve.and tbe im pression that there would be further orders of pold for export this morning, which was fully justified by the event, gave a heavy appearance to tbe opening. The concessions in the active stocks, however, were in all cases insignificant, and even after the announcement of the gold engagements there was no real weakness in tho list. The stubborn resistance to the realizations, and tbe efforts to force a decline, gradually de veloped a positive strong tone, and iu the after noon increased animation was accompanied by a general upward movement all along tbe line, in which even Northern Pacific preferred was one of the most prominent stocks. The extent of the advance, however, was generally for fractional amounts, and Its value was seen in its uniformity rather than 'in the wide fluctua tions of a few stocks, and the steadiness of tbe upward movement gave the advocates of higher prices renewed confidence tbat tbe long expected boom has arrived. The afternoon advance, however, was fol lowed by a vigorous attack upon tbe list, which in some cases, especially Burlington and Rock Island, wiped out most of the former improve ment. It was an organized attempt to take advantage of the gold shipment, and in a measure was suocessf ul, at the final changes in the list are geneially small fractional losses from last night's figures. Among lbs special ties, Flint aud Pere Marquette, Brunswick and Chicago and East Illinois were prominent for strength, but the majority shows small trai sec tions aftid narrow movements. The market finally closed quiet and fairly steady at insig nificant changes from first prices. Tbe only SATUEDAT." -APRIL 11, change of importance was a net advance of W, per cent in Atchison. Railroad bonds were quiet, but displayed a firmer tone tban for some time, and the im provement in the bond list is one of tbe in fluences which serve to sustain pnees of stocks to-day against the pressure which was brought to bear. The list, as usual, however, failed to score any marked advance, though tbo Atchi son issues were especially active. Tbe late dealings brought weakness, and a portion of the improvement was lost, as In shares. The sales reached 1,296,000. The general movement was upward, and South Carolina incomes advanced from 24J to 2K. but closed at 25. The other iSMies laded to'develop any feature of interest.

Country butter is also com ing in more freelyand prices are findlngalower level, as our quotations will disrloSe. High grade cheese, both domestic and Swiss, is very firm at quotations, firm enough to go up higher before many days. Vegetables of all kinds are quiet, with onions as the exception to the rule. Potatoes are barely steady at old prices. In tropical fruit lines demons are active and firm at the advance lately noted, while oranges and bananas are quiet and slow, principally on ac count of low quality of offerings.

Many Fluctuations In Wheat, Bears Having a Slight Advantage at the Close Corn and Oats Open Weak, but Close Stronger. CHICAGO There were many sensational transformations in the appearance of the wheat deal in the course of to-day's session, but the advantage was in the end slightly in favor of the bear party. Tbero was a hard and de termined struggle against the tendency given by tbe tone of tbe greater number of the day's dispatches, which was in favor of the bulls, but the foundation of all tbe bullish items was the foreign demand, and that was vory much weakened by lower closing cables. Corn was firm, after a momentary weak spell atthe open ing, and closed about c improvement on yes terday's closing figures. Provisions were dull, heavy and tending downward, closing with a better tone, however, and pork and ribs at a slight improvement upon yesterday's final prices. Tho scones in the wheat pit opened with bril liant sunshine out of doors and a grand chorus of sellers. Tbe first transactions were at about ic below the closing price of the day before. May started at 81 03?iI 03 and July at 81 2J1 V2.. In about Ave minutes from tho start May was 81 04J and July SI 03. The local weather was the paramount influence at first, and very strong cable dispatches began to'exer cise their power immediately thereafter. From around SI 04 the advance to the high point named was very rapid, and an equally quick decline followed the receipt of lower quotations by tbe afternoon cables. Some shorts took bold at SI 03 and bought until tbe price reacted to $1 03& for May, where tbey dropped it and did not come to its aid until a later wave of depression had carried it to $1 03. Another reaction left Mav at 81 03JJ and July, which was sold down to SI 02 once more reacted and closed at SI 02. The corn market was weak early on the Im proved weather. The demand for supporting feature of tbe legitimate situation and tbe small quantity of contract corn is the perma nently strong shape of the speculative side of the deal. Opening price of May was 66Kc;a few sales were made ar tfic, aud then a steady ad vance to around b7jjjn commenced. A reaction took prices to 65Jc, and a final upturn left the Closing quotations at C7Je to oTJc. Oats opened 8KC lower anu closed KKC higher, after having fluctuated lc The market was fairly active early, but the trading dragged somewhat toward the close. Tbe provision deal was weak at tho opening and less active generally than of late, but was firmer, with corn, later, and closed 2Jc lower for May pork and unchanged for July. Lard lost 5c, but ribs at the close bad improved 2c to 5c since Saturday. The leading futures ranged as iollows. as cor rected by John M.
