THE OETLOOE REGARDED FAVORABLE. Condition or Trade at All the O ntcrs Up to the Close Yesterday. Office of Frrrsncna DisrATcn, ) Friday, June 26. Raw Inos am Steel Thebusincss done in iron nnd steel for the month of June -was re mnrkablo in more ways than one. In the first place the pales were the largest ever made, during June, in the history of the trade. In another part or this report will ho found figures for this statement. In former yours dealers generally postponed purchas . tngUDtilafter July stock taking, bat not so this year, Buyers, for reasons no douht satisfactory to themselves, particularly dur ing the past two weeks, purchased several largo blocks of Bessemer for present and future delivery at materially higher figures than prevailed earlier in the month. There mast be u reason for this movement, other wise sales would not have been so liberal. This movement wn not confined to Pittsburg nlone. The Mahoning and Shenango Valleys, and othor points Irom which I'lttsburg pomctimes obtains supplies, havo been do ing a large, business nnd are undoubtedly u ell pleased w Itli the situation and outlook. The Mock of iron for sale hero is not a largo one; In fact, certain furnaces seem indif ferent about disposing of their stocks at present. This certainly shows confidence in the future. The Clond Xot Very Dark. The new scale of wages adopted by the Amalgamated Association is in the mnin the same as the scale for last year, but n fe w nppa;ntly insignificant stipulations which have been inserted promise to give consid erable trouble. A well-informed party has this to iy: "1'robably tho most serious ob stacle in the way of improvement is tho fear ol a tight money market during the fall months. This is shown in the limited de mand for rails and other equipments. I'ros peets were neicr more favorable for u large carrying business, as abundant crops are now assured. and many roaus were never much worse off for rolling stock than at present, vet orders -"re held back because of the icjiclty of casurrf-the difficulty of securing favorable terms of credit. This will be overcome ultimately, but in the meantime how sue the immense cropj to be moved and paid for unless money becomes easier? ' In the Mahoniiig and Shenango Valleys the blast furnace- are neaily all active. Two or three out ot blast expect to resume as soon as stock is received and a few minor details are arranged. They are nearly all pretty well sold up lor the summer months. The price of gray forge is not as strong as it as a week .igo This is owing to the fact that the mills will shut down lor a short pe riod July 1 to take stock and adjust the scale of wage-, for tho coming year. When these matteis are completed an active do mmid and improvement in prices of all kinds of raw material, it is predicted, will soon take place. Manufactured Iron Stiffer. Manufactured iron is more active than for some time pa9t. This may especially be said of sheet of all kinds. Prices are incon sequence stilTer. The Latest Market steady, with good trade demand. Tho sales of Bessemer con tinue very large, with prices fairly main tained. Cray Jorge and mill sales show that consumers are taking hold freely. Steel slabs and billets areattracting a fair amount ol attention. Muck bar held firmly. The outlook, when the season of the year Is taken into consideration, -is certainly favor able. . RX.

BUYIffa 13 EESIEICTED. Th Dullness or the Chicago Iron Market Steadily on the Increase. trrrciAL telecham to the oisrATcn. Chicago, June 25. Rogers, Brown & Mer wiii say: Increasing dullness characterizes the Chicago maiket, though there have been some sales made of lots of 500 tons in size. The amount of buying, however, is for tho most irt confined to small Jots, most of tho. large consumers having covered their re quirements for from six to tenmonthsahead. As to prices. Lake Superior charcoals re main unchanged; leading brands are held at SIS 00, whilo one or two of the smaller fur naces short of orders are still ready to cut this price. Southern brands remain nbout the same as a woek ago. All expectations of an early advance in values in this line have been given up. w TEE SAKE OLD SITUATION SU11 Prevails In the Philadelphia Market, With Nothing to Hope For. SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCn.3 Philadelphia, Juno 28. The iron market refuses to show any pronounced change, cither for tho better or worse, and our re marks concerning tho situation a week ago apply with equal truth to its condition to day. There is a feeling among holders that tho market will remain in about the same state of doubt as now exists until somo timo in August. The sales of tho past wook, generally in small lots, were made at about this range of prices, delivered: Standard Pennsylvania Xo. rX,'$17 TSffilS 00; standard Pennsylvania Xo. 2 X, $16 5017 00; medium, Pennsvlvania Xo.l X. $17 2517 60; medium Pennsylvania Xo.2 X,$10 00 16 21 In steel rails large orders continue to be hold in abeyance, whilo small orders come in pretty freely, which enables mills to keep full for several weeks ahead. Prices continue very strong nt 850. Business in bnr iron is only fairly active, with prices showing an improving tenaoncv, due turnout advancing, jiiusnro making "full time and have enough orders to keep them busy the balance of the month, the activity being due, probably, to the an ticipation of midsummer suspension of work. Wc quote: L7Sll.85o for city deliver ies, and 1.651.70c at points in the interior. Concessions from these prices are not easily obtained. There is little or no demand for skelp iron,nnd these prices would be readily accepted: Grooved, 1.73c delivered; sales have been made at l.'iyic delivered. The maiket for plates continues to improve, so far as tho demand is concerned, but prices still remain as quoted a week ago. Mills making structural material are quite busy, and the demand for early deliveries is heavier than laet week. Prices are un changed, as follows: Angles, 2.032.10c: sheared plates, 2g2.19c; and 1.0c more for steel: tees. 2.S.JJ2.0C: bcamsandchannels.3.10c for either iron or steel. There is no demand for Iron rails, and $20 Z0Q22 00 is a nominal price for them. We quote old steel rails at Jl7 C0S3IS 63, according to lengths and point of delivery, with sales chiefly at about $18 delivered. The market for scrap iron is in much tho same condition, dull and in light demand. Wc quote: Xo. 1 railroad scrap, SMMiMl 00; Xo. 2 light, $15 16; best inachinerv scrap, $1415, and for old car wheels, $1617. FAB FB0H LIFELESS. A Good Deal of Activity Still Prevalent in the Cincinnati Market. CSrCCIAL TELEGRAM TO TirE DISPATCH. CiscissATr, June 26. Rogers, Brown & Co. say: There is a good deal of life in the mar ket, in spite of discouraging circumstances. The big crops that are now in plain sight lend a feeling of confidence for the future,no matter what may bo tho influences of the present. The natural consequence is con siderable effort to buy for long scatttcrcd deliveries The best Judgment of traveling men and othor observers is that consump tion is again on the increase. The Mahoning and Shenango Valley furnaces start off with so many unfilled orders or special contracts on their books that tbcyaro not felt much yet in competition for new business. In somo cases they have been unable to fill sin gle small orders at market prices for imme diate delivery. In tho way of actual sales the largest is 10, 000 tons to a new Southern pipe works, said to be at the low est prices before mado for equai grades. Some good sized orders for car wheel grades are reported, quite a long run of moderate sized contracts for Southern coke irons for deliveries throngh tho year, and the usual range of small orders for Ohio softeners, lake ore, coke irons, etc We quote for cash f. o. b.

For the first time since the marria-'e license office was opened five years ago there was only one license issued yester day. On Thursday there were 23 and nearly that number has been issued daily for the past month until yesterday, when the rush dropped nearly out of sight. The single license issued yesterday was not applied for until after 3 o'clock and almost closing up time. The parties who took out the lone license yesterday were K. W. Pettcrson and Ida Pctterson, both of McKeesport. Ponxth of July Is almost here. As" usual, we are to the front with the largest line of fireworks in the city, consistiof roman candles, rock ets, vertiele wheels, triangle wheels, mines, volcanoes, floral bomb shells, batteries, dragon nests, devil among tailors, fire crackers, common crackers, colored torches, etc See the lias.

OFIFCE AND STREET NEWS AND GOSSIP Some of tho real estate brokers are in favor of observing the half-holiday law. Said one of the former yesterday: "We could keep it Just ns well as not, for we do very little Saturday afternoon anyway. People who have Saturday afternoon to themselves put in the time shopping and making pro vision for Sunday, or spend the timo in recreation. They throw business to the winds. My experience is that Saturday afternoon is the worst time for business of the entire week, and I think we would lose nothing bv shnttinir tin shon. The short respito from office routine would be bene ficial tomost of us. It would refresh and strengthen us for the duties of the coming week." Another broker took precisely the opposite viow of tho case. lie said: "As a, rule, Sat urday afternoon is the best time of the week for closing deals. When people are not working for others, if they are at all indus trious and enterprising, they try to do some thing for themselves. They (o their think ing and planning when at work and executo when idle. Thousands of people transact all their private business Saturday afternoon which is and always has been a sort of holi day. It would bo unjust to deprive the peo ple of the opportunity of buying on the only day, or part of a day, at their disposal. If the Saturday afternoon business in real estate be cut off, it will seriously affect the revenue of a good many of us. Besides, there is no necessity for closing up as a measure of comfort and health. We are not confined to our offices like bank clerks. We are in and out continually, nnd get about all the fresh air and exercise wo need while at tending to our business. I am decidedly op posed to wasting the best half day of tho week." The majority of brokers spoken to held views similar to those of the speaker last quoted. A few thought that very little busi ness would be lost by closinir. One of tho latter thought it would be a good idea to call a meeting nnd qut the question to a vote, bnt the preponderance of sentiment being against closing, the outcome of such a, meet ing could have but one result the defeat of tho holiday movers. Wheels Will Soon Turn. The Oil Well Supply Company, -which last spring purchased the Elba Iron Works and the Continental Tube Works, Is building new furnaces and making other extensive improvements at Frankstown, near Hazel wood. It is expected the reconstructed plant will be ready for operation bv Septem ber L From ,1C0 to 1,000 men will be em ployed.

There was a wild' jumor yesterday that the Drcxels, of Philadelphia, had put in a bid for tne jurist jl, . ijnurcn property witn a view to putting up a bank building on it. The re port could not be verified. The Xew York Central directors will not declare the dividend till June 30. The earn ings for the last six months are said to be especially large.

Bears Mako a Bald and Secure a Lower Quotation Reasons for the Decline Talk About the Tractions Thomson Houston Bonds The Foreign Situation. Brokers who assembled on 'Change yes terday had little" to do. But for Philadel phia Gas tho calls would have been empty idealities. It was subjected to a slight bear raid and yielded under the pressure from 12 bid at the opening to HJf at the close. A block of 0 shares sold at 11. The downward trend of this stock is due not to a falling off of tho supply or even to the lear of it, but to reduced earnings during the hot weathor period and the certainty that there will bo no dividend in July. The passing of the dividend will bo strictly in line with the well-known policy of the com pany to devote all the earnings to the ex tinguishment of the indebtedness until it shall be wiped out, an event among tho probabilities of the not remote future, while this Is really in the interest of the stockholders. It impairs the speculative value of tho stock. Hence the slump. , There was nothing else in the market worthy of extended mention. There was no material change in the Tractions, but there was little of the stock on tap. A good deal of the bear talk about these properties is for ulterior purposes. Rapid transit is a neces sity in Pittsburg, whose growth Is so rapid and so sure as to give promise to enough business for all the roads now in operation to make them dividend payers when they become well established. Electric was dull and nominally lower. The rest of the list was about steady. Xew York was dull and weak on additional gold shipments. London prices were strong er. Affairs of the Roval Railroad Corpora tion of Portugal were said to be in a serious condition. It was also stated that the com pany had obtained funds from German bankers to pay coupons falling due July L The shortage in Russian wheat will be less than expected. There had been heavy storms through England and Ireland, doing much injury to the crops. The Thomson-Houston management is not as yet considering the general plan of issu ing a new series or a new block of bonds un der tho auspices of the United Securities Company, but is likely to do so later. ' Tho company's railway business is ahead of last year, and thero are important negotiations pending foi largo orders. It now turus out a dozen motors per day.

HEAVY FOREIGN SELLING DEPRESSES ALL STOCKS AT THE EX PEXSE OF THE HULLS. West Point and Richmond Very Weak The Decline In Shares Very Slow and Gradual Industrials the Weakest in the Afternoon Bonds More Active. Xew York, June 26. In Wall street to-day more animation in stocks was accompanied by a mo-tcrial depression in values all along the line. The immediate cause of this state of affairs was the renewal of gold shipments on a large scale, with a consequent destruc tion of the confidence of the bullish element in the market, and tho encouragement of further additions to the short account. In addition to the shipments of gold the ad vices from the other side were not very re assuring. Tho fact that Europe has been :md is now a seller of stocks gams more be lievers every day the present depression in business continues. The strength displayed in tho market. however, the resistance given to tho decline in tho fuce of the dullness, continues to be tho most striking feature of tho situation, and to-day only in a few stocks, in which the natural downward movement was aided by other circumstances, was there any real de cline of importance. Tho continued ease of monoy. anu tho prospect that it will last, notwitnstandlng the outgo of gold, sustains tho speculative holder, and he is content to await a turn in the state of affairs which will give him the advantage in the situation. The new selling naturally enhanced the amount of business done, and the trading to day was more active than for a "week past, but tbo aggregate was still small and the fluctuations were not specially wide. Rich mond and West Point was the feature of tho day, developing the most pronounced weak ness on vaguo and unsatisfactory rumors, some affecting the financial condition of the company, whtlo other. ascribed tho selling to the liquidation of tho accounts of a noted broker whom a late misfortune has rendered incapable of attending to his own affairs. Later Cordago was sold off rapidly from 100ir to 95 on the uncovering of stop orders. The Industrials were the weakest features of the afternoon, hut the decline in t,-o rail- road list wns stoppedTonly with the close of business, though the movement in the last hour was scarcely perceptible. Among tho railroad stocks tho Coalers wero probably weakest, and Jersey Central especially so. The important losses, however, are all in the stocks which are known as specialties, while everything shared in the decline. The market closed dull but heavy at tho lowest figures of the day. The final changes are all losses, and Cordago is off lix Jersey Central, 2K; Richmond and West Point, 1J& jicago uas, 1; Louisville and Nasnvnie, IK; Xew England, IK, andXorthern Pacific preferred, 1 per cent. Railroad bonds were also more animated to-day, Vhile the tone of the dealings was in tho main steady; but thero were n few specially weak points which gave a heavy nnpearance to the list. The Richmond" and A est Point issues wero most prominent among these. The sales amounted to $5il,0M, without special animation In any one issue or a specially wido distribution of business.

THE MAEKET BASKET. Watermelons and Roasting Ears to the Front Price of Staples. The fruit and vegetable season is now at its best, and tho opportunities for a good Sunday dinner wero never better than they are to-day. Within the past week water melons, cantaloupes, blackberries, red rasp berries and roasting ears have put in their first appearance for tho season. Strawber ries are close to their end, but there are still a few in the stalls. Eggs that iare sure are very scarce and prices are a shade higher than they wero a week ago. Florists report a lively trade for the first naif of the week, but the latter half has been slow. The closing up of schools has made special demands on florists this week, but volume of trade is hardly up to last week, when society was getting in its best work for tho year. Lake and ocean products are quiet, as is their custom at this season. Ohio laws forbid tho use of nets in Lake Erie after June 15, and the fresh lako fish for the next month or two will hall from Huron and Superior.

Local Jobbers cleaned up their floors of open stock, and will put in new goods by Mon day. The demand at first hands was steady for popular goods. 'The market maintains a good position as to supplies. Stocks are moderate, and tho tendency of values are rather toward firmness than otherwise, al though occasionally there is a revision to a lower figure. Goods that have been selling at a low figure to close stocks have a tenden cy to leact, some being already higher.

SUGAR MARKETS TENDING UPWARD OmB ot PiTTSBimo Dispatch, J Friday. Juno 20. Couistry Phodtoe (Jobbing Prices) Dairy products nro quiet all along theline, receipts being in excess of demand. Markets are overstocked with Ohio cheese, and country butter nnd inside quotations arc tho rule. Xew York cheese is coming in more freely of late, and prices are fairly steady at ljc per pound above Ohio cheese. The general view of dealers is that prices are now at the bot tom. Strictly fresh eggs are not in sufficient supply to meet demand, nnd our quotations aro onco more advanced. Prospects are good for a 19c egg market within a few days. Southern potatoes aro still tending down ward. Good Tennessee stock lias sold on track this week 11 shado below $i per barrel. This was due to excessively large receipts In tho fore part of the week.

A Bullish Opening In Cereals Begins a Bearish Day Damages by Floods Ex aggerated, and Fine Weather Keported A Good Trade in Provisions. CHICAGO The feeling was bullish in tho wheat pit at tho opening to-day, and for the first minute or so July was taken at J01c advance over the closing prices of yester day, though the deferred futures were not so strong: but tho situation was quickly re versed. The early bnyers turned sellers and a pronounced break in prices was the result, July closing lc lower than yesterday. The higher opening wns duo to the pub lished reports of the widespread and de structive storms in Iowa and elsewhere yes terday nnd the day before, and it was a con tinuation of the strength developed late in vesterday's session. An early cable from Beerbohm reported that the drought and heat in Rnssin still prevailed. Thebulli shly inclined, however, were met at tho outside by a flood of selling orders from Xew York uuuoi. .L,oms. indicating mat trauers mere were not scared by theflood news nnd, cables coming lower, the early bulls made a rapid change and became seflers; shorts also be RRn to pound tho market. Dispatches from the interior not only reported clear and line weather to-day in most parts of the winter wheat region, but said that the effect and extent of yesterday's storms had been greatly exaggerated. Inly opened at 93W3le .icrnlnst 03c nt tlia cloe yesterday, broke to D2c, reacted to 93Vfc, went back to 92c, up to 92Jic, off to 92c. and finally to 9lc at tho close. The late advices from abroad were very depreseing. Uoerbohm quoted Liverpool Id lower, and London cabled 6d lower. A dis patch from Antwerp said: "3Iarket demor alized: almost impossible to get bids." French advices said that while Paris was quoted firm, quotations were 10 to 30 cen times lower. Another cause for the depres sion was dispatches from tho other side, say ing that foreign wants seemed to bo amply provided for, nnd that it was very difficult to sell wheat to arrive. Corn started flrm.'partly from tho storms reported to havo prevailed yesterday and partly in sympathy with wheat. July sold during tho first few minutes at 55c. These prices proved so attractive that a flood of long corn camo on the market and short sel lers became active. Theposting showed the receipts about 70 cars in excess of tho esti mates, and cables being lower and wheat breaking, corn was quick to follow. July soon went to 53c. There was then some re action, but when tho estimated heavy re ceipts for to-morrow were made known there was another weak spot, and July sold to 52Jfc It rallied to 53c, but broke again to Sljia and closed a shade higher. Oats followed the course of corn pretty closely, and was also influenced some by wheat. There was a good trade in provisions, and the fluctuations were confined to narrow limits. Mess pork opened at 10 10 for Sep tember, against $10 07 as the last figures yesterday, sold upo flQ 15, then, on a rumor that yellow fever had appeared in Xew Orleans, sold off to $10 00, but recovered to $10 10 at the close.
