THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, "WEDNESDAY; APRIL 22, 1891.
'FEATUEES OF TRADE. A Larger Acreage Planted by Gar deners and Farmers of THIS SECTION THAN FOE TEARS. Seed Onions and Potatoes Terj High, bat in Active Demand. coal surrLiEs nor bt to demand OFFICE OF PITTSBURG DlSrATCH. I Tuesday. April 21. i Seeds and Agricultural Tools. Seedsmen and dealers in agricultural im plements are now in the midst of their busy season. In general, prices of seed are much Inciter this seaion than for a number of years past. Potatoes and onions for planting purposes are particularly high. The best seed potatoes on the market are from Can adian province, Prince Edward's Island being a prominent source of supply for par ticularly fincy stock. The best are selling at ?2 per bushel, or $3 per barrel, and it is all dealers can do to meet demand for the best. These prices are luliy double the rate for the average season. Seed onions are scarcer than they have been for a dozen years or more. Jobbing prices are now S10 per bushel, which is lull double the price ot a year ago. and. at the hign price, supply is not up to demand. Ibe home raised stock of seed onions was long ago exhausted, and now it seems that stock Iruin a instance is no longer forthcoming. A week or two ago seed onions were coming in from Erie, but for the last lew days that source of suppls has been dried up. &aid a Liberty s reel produce commission merchant yesterday: "Everybody wants onion tets at this time aud nobody has them. Ve could sell much more than we can get, even at the high price." Another Scarce Article. Another article in the seed line which is scarce and higher than for the past 15 years is blue grass. As will be seen by reference to our domestic niaiket column blue grass of the best duality it selling at 54 per bushel, a price double that of a j ear ago. At this high price there is a ereat dimcultj securing all needed to meet orders. Notwithstanding high prices in seed lines, the demand is active and volume of trade this seaon so far is unusually large. It is clear that a Iatger acreage than common will be planted bv cardeners and farmers of this vicinity. The' trade in agricultural implements lias opened up welL prices are practically the same this season as last. Manufacturers in former seasons pur sued the cut-throat policy of every man lor himself, which meant the old Harry for all. Now that margins hare become very nairow, they hate come to an understanding and prices are uniform. Said a representative of one of our leading firms: "'We have done a ranch better business both in seeds and agri cultural implements than e had done at this stage lat year. Our sales for the ruonih of April, 1S9L are nearly double wnat they were lor the corresponding period ot ISM. If the amount of seed purchased is any sign, the yield of garden andfaim produc's in the dis trict of country tributary to Pittsburg, will this season eclipse all lormer seasons." The Coal Trade. The wane of natural gas has very much stimulated the trade in coal, which for the past two years or moi e has been under a cloud. All dealers in the old reliable fuel report a better trade the past winter than since the advent of gas for heating purposes. A gentleman who is at the head of one of the leading coal mining companies of the Cbartiers Valley, in an interview estorday had this to say ol the traae. "There has been no time for aycar Past when we were able to meet all the demands Tor our product. We employ close to 1UU miners, who woiL on an average about nve Hours per dav, and would gladly put as many more to work if we ottuld set them. In all the coal mining districts around Pittsburg, reached by railroads, it has been impossible to secure as many miners the past winter as were wanted. Our trade with the unper lakes has been almost wined out because we wcro not able to fill orders from that regiOD. Pittsburg's coal ship ments to the lakes has not been more than 7a. IJOO tons the pat season, while Ohio's trade to the same region has been 730.00U tons in tho same ueriod. The Point of the Difficulty. Our coal is superior to the Ohio coal, and is preferred in the upper lake rezion, but we could not fuiuish tbc goods. A few years ago the Pittsburg district sent four times as much coal to the lakes as it has done the past year. A strange and rather funny teatuie of the labor complications is that coal miners should stuke for eight hours a day when statistics prove that the miners of this district have worked the past year on an average 5 hours and 11 minutes daily. The company 1 repre sent would be mighty clad if they would put in 8 hours out ot the "1, for then we would he better able to fill orders We could sell all our output iu Pittsburg alone. The present price paid to our miners is 79c per ton, and three tons per day is a cood average, while some take out four tons aud even more. If the eight-uour rule were adopted, and it is a Poor rule that won't wore for both sides, the average output would be greatly increased." MARKETS BY WIRE. Hears In It heat Turn the Tables on tho Hulls and Prices Go Scooting Down ward Other speculative Pits Also Let Go Heavy Selling. CHICAGO Por several days past the bulls in the wheit pit have had everything their own way and the unluckj bears have been gored and tossed uumircilully. It was the bears' turn lu-dav, and they improved tho opportunity by giving their opponents a rib cracking squeeze. The n?t result of thedav's trading was a de cline in May wheat of l?c compared with the Hosing price jesteidaj, aud of 3c from the highest point reached to-day. July declined li.4c compared with yesterday's close and 3c lrtm the lushest of the day. The weakness in the leading cereal was taken advantage of in the other speculative pits to depress prices, and as a consequence, comparing prices with the closing figures yeslcrdav, corn is off 1?b1Kc; oats, JjC; pork, 30c; lard, 10c, and ribs, -Jvc. iIil day started in with a flue prospect for the continuance of the hull campaign. The early cables indicated decidedly higher prices abroad and commission houses were over whelmed with buy inn orders. The result was that the opening prices were from lc to 2c higher than at the close yesterday. That was the high point for the day. however. Ouce started downward tho market showed small recuperative power, and, with a few rallies on lealizing purchases, continued to recede throughout the session. July, which started out with sales any w here from SI 13 to SI 13f and sold to SI 13J. broke tn 1 11 on sales by Bryant, Koche, Liun and Dnvei. and was then lifted to SI 1 by purchases by these sellers who were tiking prohis and by Hutchinson and White Co. The selling on the bulge was by the same people who engineered the first break. This raid c-irried it down SI 11 Clos ing cable from Liveipool and Antweip were j-o much highei that it rallied to El 12, but re newed selling sent it down again to Jl 10J. the lowest point of the session. May started at Jl 1C1 16. and following to the July lutuie touched SI 12? as the low point Corn was weak from the start. It started out with sales from OHc down to 6Sc and subsequently declined to G7c. Lons nere disused to let go of their homings, and there was a little more disposition among the bears to sell it short. Oats were quiet and ra'her uninteresting. The did little more than follow corn, closing at the bottom prices of the day. Themaiket for provisions opened easy and without xcitemcut at some decline from the closing prices of the previous day, and contin ned iu a drooping condition during the entire session, being at their lowest prices tor the day at the close.

RELATIVE COST OP PARK REALTY. Speculative Commodities Maintain a Mod erate Movement. OFFICE AND STREET NEWS AND GOSSIP The fact that the Equitable Insurance Company is putting up an 5800,000 buildiDg in Atlanta was brought to the attention of a Fourth aTenue real estate agent yesterday, who remarked: "I think the Equitable, the New York Life and some other insurance companies, who hare made mints of money here, should do something for Pittsburg in the way of improvement. This would be a substantial recognition of the good will and support they have and are receiving from this community. Although there is no pro nounced movement in this direction, I think the corarjany first named has the matter uuder consideration. This company was in the market last year, but the matter leaked out and owners put up prices to such a pitch that the agent was scared off. "What ever is done hereafter will be on the 'no talk' principle. I could mention two' sites that are under consideration, but it might do barm. Thor are Doth in the central part of the city." Values of Fark Property. Leaving the propriety of locating, the Car negie Library in Schenley Park to be discussed elsewhere, there is no doubt it will be a good thing for property owners out there. On this subject Samuel W. Black said yesterday: "Property in the BellQeld district in the vicinity of the park and library will. In my opinion, sell at S200 a foot front within three years. It is now held at from S75 to 1123. Improvements are of such a character as to insure enhancement. Property in Allegheny on streets running to the park is held at from S200 to S300 a foot front. Buildings for the most part are on small lots, and generally without much attempt at architectural display. Northside people, however, are beginning to do better in this re spect, and it is safe to say that buildings of the futnrewlll be of abetter class than those of the past. This will give valueB a lift." Impressions of the South. John F. Baxter, of Baxter, Thompson & Co., returned yesterday from a trip to the South, taking In many of the leading towns and cities in Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama. He su perintended a sale of lots at Sylacauga, Ala., which was successfnl beyond expectation. A 10,000 spindle cotton mill will be erected in Sylacauga this summer. Mr. Baxter added: "Land values in most of. the cities and towns visited have quadrupled in the last few years. Building is a notable feature, suggesting the idea of permanent prosperity. So well pleased were a nnmber of excursionists with the busi ness outlook that they have already taken steps to obtain control of several important manufacturing interests. One of them secured an option on 3,500 acres of slate and marble land and proposes to establish works for their manufacture. Hotels are overrun with East ern capitalists looking for opportunities for investment. The prospect for heavy crops en courages the people to hope for a still larger measure of prosperity.'" Should Be Encouraged. PittsDurg people are becoming more thrifty and prosperous as the community crows older. As a result of this the nnmber of home owners is constantly increasing. The possession of a bnlldlng lot, or lots, has become a rnling passion. Ownership of real estate, mnch or little, creates credit and exerts an influence which can be acquired in no other way. One piece of property stimulates a man to acquire another, and so on until he finally takes pride in public affairs. It makes him a better citi zen. Tho feeling that every man should own the house he lives in and the ground upon which it stands has taken deep root here, and is rapidly converting Pittsbarg into a city of homes. It is a feeling that should be encour aged in every way. Business News and Gossip. To-morrow is the time fixed for the ooening session of the Real Estate Auction Board. M early all the real estate agents who were on the sick list have recovered and areagain on the warpath. There was a bid of 82 on call yesterday for Manchester Traction. - The decline in the asking priefffor Exchange memberships leads to the belief that there is no prospect of finding a prompt customer for the building.

Ontslde Attractions Cutting In on I-ocal Trading, but Business Not Bad Ups and Downs of the Day Electric Still in the Dark., The revival of speculation in Wall street, and the flurry in grain at Chicago bave been deleterious to stock trading in Pittsburg, many investors taking hold of the more active com modities for a quick turn. Local business, however, is far from stagnant, and the tendency is toward a broader field of operations. Total sales yesterday were 882 shares, of which 50 were Philadelnhia Gas. The other active prop erties were Electric Citizens' Traction, Pleas ant Valley, Luster and Cbartiers Gas. The market was as barren of features and incidents as possible. Philadelphia Gas was steady, with more buyers than sellers. Char tiers Gas sold down to 7, the lowest in its history. Alanufacturers' Gas was bid np to 19, with none offered. Citizens' Traction sold at 69, an advance. Luster was a fraction stroncer. Switch and Signal held its own. In the bank list there was too much difference be tween bids and offers to make business pos sible. Electric was comnarativelv aniet and closed a small fraction under the opening. The biebest at Boston was ii and the lowest 13. It closed there at YSM. bid and offered at 13K. Trading was light. There was no news to affect the stock either war. The Ion? exnected state ment appears to be as far off as ever. The old story that Mr. Westmgbouse has secured all the money he needs was floating around the Hub, but it made no impression either tbere or here. The only thing that seems certain is that there will be a partial or entire reorgani zation and chance in the management, but when the announcement will be made no one pretends to know. On Tuesday the annnal meeting of stock holders of the Cbartiers Natural Gas Company will be held. A well knuwn stockholder has a choice assortment of questions which he will fire at the directory, and a lively time is ex pected. It is thought these questions cannot bo dodged, and that answers to them will bring out the information which stockholders have so long desired to obtain.

A small buying demand for oil sprang up yesterday, but at the expense of price. Oil City took 18,000 or 20,000 barrels from Pittsburg at68!. This was the only quotation, and It was bid at the finish. Weakness was attributed to bettor reports from the field. Rehned was weaker at Antwerp. The aver age runs were 74,671: averaen shipments, 62,550; average charters, 35,765. The difference be tween the first and the last item is steadily widening, and is a good explanation of the ab sence ot backbone. Tracy, Wilson & Co., quote puts G72c; calls 6c Other Oil Markets.

A Halt Called on Wall Street Balls, hat They Nevertheless Hold Their Own Less Business hut a Broadening Market Bonds Active and Firm. New York, April 2L The stock market met with a check to-day, both as regards its strength and its activity, though the firmness of its tone was not impaired for a moment. The execu tion of numerous stop orders gave the bears an opportunity to attack some of the leading shares with success, while realizations of profits accrued on tho advance of the past few days aided in unsettling for the moment the confidence of the bullish feeling in the street. The local operators, as a rule, are known to be fighting the rise, and while reactions are al ways to be expected in a general advance tbere was nothing to-day which could be called a -reaction, even with the conjunction of all the torces wnicn may do arraigned against tne up ward movement. A halt occurred, however, which had the effect of giving many would-be buyers pause, and the volume of the business after the realiz ing sales of the forenoon became materially smaller than that of the last few days at that time of day. There was rather a larger foreign demand than usual, and the Western demand was still prominent, while those in position to know say that there has been no change in position among the Western operators; but the effect of the sales was most apparent in the Western stocks, though the entire market felt the influence. A further engagement of cold for export waB not without its effect, also, but the tendency in the street is to disregard the movement of specie outward, and beyond offer ing a littlo additional encouragement to the bears it was soon forgotten. EThe market, notwithstanding the decrease in business, perceptibly broadened, though the principal trading was still confined to the same fewstocks which have been prominent in the market for the last two weeks. The trading, however, was better distributed, and the stub born resistance to the depressing influenes kept prices generally within narrow limits ana finally forced a retreat on the part of the advo cates of lower figures. The weakest points in the list were naturally those which have bad the greatest advance, such as Chicago Gas and Rock Island, though there was, for the amount of business done, considerable weakness dis played at times in Lackawanna, Among the specialties, Oregon Bbort Line followed the bonds and roso sharply, and among others may be mentioned Wabash preferred, Richmond and West Point preferred and Wheeling and Lake Erie preferred which was aided by the increase in the dividend rate as promised some time ago. New England also became prominent by a spurt in the afternoon, inexplicable, as usual, with the movements in that stock. A steady opening was followed by a general selling move ment, which forced prices off from $ to per cent; bnt after this had spent its lurce there was a complete rally, but the continued efforts of the professionals to force a decline kept the market rather feverish throughout the day, and the general tendency of prices downward. The market finally closed fairly active and heavy, but with promise for to-morrow, while prices were generally small fractions under those of the opening. Railroad bonds were fairly active again, and again displajed a firm tone as a rule, though the movements were not on so larce a scale as those of yesterday. Oregon Improvement fives continue active on a statement of a large increase in the net earnings for the first quar ter of 1891. as compared with the corresponding quarter of 189a The following table shows tne prices of active stocks on the New York Stock Exchange yester day.
