The Financier eays: "The Increasing demands
ct the interior for cron-movicg funds is shown in
a loss of J5.7S2.2C0 cash by the associated banks
of New York for the week ended Sept. 22. All
this money was shipped West and South. Oper
ations with the subtreasury have resulted In
little change either way. The interesting feature
of the weeklr statement is a decrease of 32.6S3.
"0 in the loan Item, the first contraction of
consequence that has been noted since the third
week in July. The change for the current week
Is net large, but derives significance from the
fact that the drain of cash out of New York
has led the banks to curtail outstanding com
mitments. The fallacy of forecasting the prob
able olume of Interior demands over a fall sea
ton is well shown In the present depletion of
reserves, the shipments so far this year having
teen fully up to the ordinary, despite the re
lated assertions that New York would cot be
ciiXe-l upon to finance the crop harvest. As It la
the banks have a much heavier reserve than
üual at this period, but as the shipments of
money are not over by any means, It will be
only logical if a further ehrinkage In loans re
sults. The situation Is somewhat complicated by
the adjustments of the German and Swedish
leans, now being negotiated here, but so far as
cnilnary commercial and local business Is con
cerned. It favor a f.rmer money market. It Is
r.ot to be forgotten that the deposit account is
much higher than the average, necessitating a
lr.rg? volume of cash reserve, and to meet pres
ent needs a contraction in other Items, releasing
rart of this reserve. Is the ordinary remedy. For
the week Just ended the reserve shrinkage Is
smaller than the actual less In cash, because of
ti.ls very operation. This is in direct contrast
v.ith the exhibit of the rrevlous week, when
expanding deposits, due to rising loans, made
the reserve loss heavier than-cash shrinkage.
The fact that the circulation of the banks has
increased over 100 per cent. In the last year
renlera it possible for the banks to ship West
a large amount cf money that does not deplete
reserves or affect totals."
WALL STREET REVIEW.
New York stocks weakened afresh Saturday,
and after two hours cf active trading the mar
ket clcsed active and weak, except for the irreg
ularity caused by shorts buying to cover in some
cf the stocks which had been most severely
raided by the bears. Only in Tennessee Coal was
ttse rally as much a a point. leaving a net loss
cf 2 points in that stock. The coalers, the hlgh
iriced specialties and the steel stocks, except
the steel rail makera, show the heaviest losses.
The rioting and bloodshed in the anthracite min
ing region had a depressing influence on the
whole list, and Reading Issues were specially
affected on account of the hope that has been
lnlu!ged in that It mines would net be shut
üown. which was disappointed by Friday's cessa
tion of work In that company's shafts. The light
fcuTing for London account was entirely dis
regarded, and the slight demand for bargain
hunters, which made its appearance here and
tlere. was without any influence in checking the
liquidation. The railroad group did not escape
ti e wtTiillnf weakness, and standard railroad
minor roais. There were examples of losses of
a point or over In the trunk lines, the Southern
group, the Southwestern, the grangers and the
Faelflcs. Baltimore & Ohio and Louisville &
Nsthvill were most conspicuous for weakness.
The bank statement seemed to precipitate re-
T.ewed selling, although it was no weaker than
tton. that the selling has been m.lr for nort
ocunt. It teems also that the remittances in
tsyment cf the German loan, which affected the
FTices are considerably lower a a result or a
w-k's trading in the stock market. On Mon
day and Tuesday there seemed to be ffec"?
check to the liquidation begun, on "day ana

shorts to cover effected feme conslderao.e rallies

in force, and broadened out so as to include

considerably, that there would be much less de

that the reaction In general business activity

in addition, that the oountry's additional money
supply would keep down Interest rates. This
increase has come from the, production of our
own and the AJaskan gold mines, from the ex
pansion of bank note currency, and from the
government's refunding operations, as well 'as
from lajge receipts of Australian gold. But the
premium on gold to reolenish their henkln re
serves. Foreign governments' needs for loans to
meet military expenditures have absorbed large
credits, and the German money markets have
had a burden to carry of Inflation of capital is
sues on Industrial projects. Furthermore, the
London market Is still cut off from Its recent
source of gold supply In South Africa, and the
large mnu of gold which usually go from Aus

In consequence New York bankers have been
larpe lenders In foreign markets, and for a con
siderable period have been practically out of the
local money market. Interior banks have, in the
meantime, been active In placing loans In the
New York market. The effect of these conditions,
which have been rlpenir.g for a long time, be
came manifest la.t week, when large demands
were made on New York bank reserves for cur
rency from Interior ioints. The hope that the
Galveston relief measures made last week's
movement abnormal is dissipated ley this week's
larger movement, demands from Western polnt3
being added to those from the South. New York
money rates have risen appreciably Hn response.

has been made rr i h more sensitive to other
elements of uncertainty in the outlook
The coal miners' strike, the unsctthtd waee
schedules in the steel trades, and the growing
complexity or tne diplomatic situation over China
have played parts of increasing importance. It
is recalled that In the experience of last fall the
needs of speculative holders of stocks were the
last to be consulted by lenders of money, and
many Industrial, dividend-paying stocks were
uncompromisingly refused as collateral for
loans. The call loan rate on the Stock Exchange
soarea to 1.86, while no more than 6 per cent,
was paid for loans in ordinary business trans
actions. These are the considerations that have
induced the week's liquidation

UNION STOCKYARDS, INDIANAPOLIS,
Sept. 12. Cattle Receipts. 130; shipments small.
As usual on Saturday there were not many fresh
arrivals of cattle, but about as many as the
average at this time in the week. . The arrivals
included very little fat stock, and with a limited
demand for other kinds the market was neces
sarily quiet and salesmen had considerable diffi
culty In consummating sales at yesterday's
prices. A few feeding cattle also changed
hands. In point of numbers the market this
week was all that could have been expected.
but the quality was below the average, there
being an unusually large proportion of common
stock cattle represented. Nearly 4,000 cattle
were received, which Is an increase of 1,500 over
last week, 1.000 over the same week a year ago.
and the largest receipts In one week since the
week ending Dec. 16, . 1S99. when nearly 4,7
were received. Thus far this year the receipts
are over 1,000 larger than the same period la3t
year. From the beginning of the week thcro
was quite a scarcity of stock animals for butch
ers, and on that accouat steady prices were
very well maintained, notwithstanding other
markets were lower. Later in the week, how
ever, buyers were less liberal, and all fat stock
except possibly the best , steers sold 10c lower,
and some dealers claimed that the whole lino
showed that much change, compared with th
high time last week. The stocker and feeder
market, on account of the exceedingly large
number on sale, did. not result as satisfactory
to salesmen and owners as expected, but nearly
all dealers agree that prices were .consistent.
considering the supply and quality. Early we?k
quotations did not vary much from last week.
but later buyers were forced to take off gener
ally 13c In prices of the best grades, and thcTe
was no certain price for the hundreds of common
kinds here. In many Instances It was next to
impossible to get a bid, and there were probably
no sales that did not show 25c decline In prices,
compared with those current heretofore this
season. Good feeders ranged from fl'34.73, fi.w)
being considered the top at the close of the week.
and common kinds were reported at f3.23Q3.73.
Probably 200 were left in the pens at the close of
trade to-day. During the week fat steers soil
as high as $3.8), heifers $3, and cows $4.23. Quo

Hogs Receipts, 2,500; shipments, L700. With a
very small supply and quite an urgent demand
from shippers the hog market opened with strong
competition and salesmen took advantage of the
situation to force an advance in prices. The
eagerness of buyers was responsible for sales of
hogs at the same price that were not the same
kind, but air dealers agreed that the bulk of
the supply sold at an average advance of fully
5c. In keeping with late reports from other places
the closing market was less active, and a good
part of the advance was lost on late sales. The
receipts this week are 1,000 larger than last
week and 4,500 smaller than the same week a
year ago, and the receipts so far this year are
238,000 smaller than the same period last year.
There has been a gradual upward movement in
values since the beginning of the week, and the
average at the high time was 10l5c higher than
the tow time, but at the extreme close of the
week sales were not to exceed 10c higher than
the low time In any Instance. The quality gen
erally has been satisfactory, but on a few days
there were quite a number of undesirable hogs
offered. As a natural resmlt of the high prices
now prevailing there should be an Increase in
receipts soon, and It will not be surprising to see
a reaction in values. Quotations:

Common to fair light weights 5.50r5.60
Common to good pigs 4.506f5.C0
Sheep Receipts, 100; shipments none. There
was only a moderate supply of sheep and lambs
on the market, and sales did not show any
quotable change compared with yesterday. Lambs
were reported at $3.50S?5.25 and sheep at $33.75.
The receipts this week show an lncreace of 300
over last week and the same week a year ago.
and thus far this year there Is a decrease of over
8,000 compared with the same period last year.
There has been a very fair demand all week for
good stock and, while there was no quotable im
provement In prices, it was possibly easier to
negotiate sales at fully steady prices compared
with the close cf last week. The better class of
stockers also found a more ready sale at steady
prices, but common kinds continue neglected and
cannot be quoted with any degree of certainty.
The top price for lambs this week was $3.25.
Sheep sold as high. as $2.63, and stockers from
$2.50 to $3.73. as to qually. Quotations:

The Passion Play a Poor Show.
To-day it Is neither' edifying nor attrac
tive. To-day it is neither religion nor aes
thetics. To-day It is false and common
place or harsh throughout, except where
now ana tnen tne older actors or tne best
grade can show themselves in their best
lights, or where the new generation of
Oberammerg'au Passion Players are young
men of the better artificial Instincts and
have been able to profit by teaching: of
their seniors or by being trained for stage
work by regular actors from cities. Only
these two things make the play endurable
now. And at least one-half of the excuse.
you observe, is purely artificial, and has
no more to do with the Ammerthal than
if the garish Passion Theater were on
Madison-square Garden or Earlscourt!
Piety, devotion, simplicity, a custom kept
for gratitude to God's good pleasure and
man's reminder nothing of the sort. That
is met only in vestiges. But a play" must
be kept up, for the village likes money.
and all the world knows of its ten-yearly
event. So sophistication, bad sophistica
tion or commonplace effect takes the place
of a real and sincere raison de coeur. It Is
a passion torn to tatters almost to Tat

Corn and oats closed each Vic higher, and pro
October wheat opened Vic to He higher, at 7$4

West, Duluth receipts were light and Minneapolis
showed an advance of ilc. A prediction of
clearer weather and an addition to the Minne
apolis receipts, which made the Northwest total
look less bullish, caused a reaction to 7S!.-c.
Damage reports were numerous, referring to th
spring wheat damage as a "calamity." and this.

for export. Clearances at the seaboard. In wheat
and flour, were equal to 405,000 bu. Primary

Trading In corn was on a small scale, but the
market was firm and prices made a further
advance. Receipts of only 513 cars and light

TALK PIlCXiniVKD BY CELLIXOID.
Some Possibilities of the .eTT Phono-
Saturday Evening Tost.
The final perfecting, after much travail
by inventors, of the tvlluloid record cylin
der for phonographs, has opened up entire
ly new tit-Ids of usefulness for the talking
machine. It will soon be widely utilized for
advertising purposes, thanks to this new
invention an idta much thought of hither
to, but which could not be carried out ow
ing to the perishable character of the
waxen tubes. One man, for example,
wished to construct a talking crow, which
would utter exclamatory remarks regard
ing his wares, but it was found that tbs
record cylinder Inclosed in the bird's stom
ach became Indistinct at the end of a week
or ten days. A well-known company, a few
years ago. put pome talking dolls on th
market, and they r?poke very intelligibly,
but their conversational powers lasted 0
Fhort a time that their manufacture was
The celluloid cylinder Is made in a very
simple way. An elect rot yp? Is made of tho
wax record, and from, this a perfect Im
pression is taken In the celluloid. The re
sulting cylinder of celluloid Is practicably,
unbreakable a great advantage.
The customer who opens the door of a
shop will thereby pull a string; that actu
ates a phonograph, which will yell out a
few suggestions as to accessible bargains.
A man who operates a cigar cutter on a to
bacconist's counter will quidcly discover
that he has let looe a mechanical voice,
which cries: "Hello! Try the LI Hung
Chang 5-cent cigar!" It la bvlieved that this
sort of advertising will be excellent for
trade. Inasmuch as. while a person may
not read a ign, he cannot help hearing the) .
howl of the phonograph.
One of the novelties in phonographs Is an
automatic instrument which enables a per
son, after dropping a nickel into a lot. to
make a choice among: half a dozen or mora
cylinders by pushing the button controlling
the one he wants. In this manner one ma
chine Is made to do the duty now performed
by a number. Another newly patene4
contrivance has a panorama attachment
which shows a series of photographs as
the customer gares through an eyehole.
The story belonging to each picture Is told
by the talking machine in a sort of running
commentary, the arrangement being such
that the verbal description is given co
lncidently with the exhibition of each pho
tograph. The reproducer now In use Is a tiny ball
of sapphire, which is not entirely satis
factory, for the reason that, owing; to Its
shape, It does not go down to the bottom of.
the record track when the latter h.tper.3
to make a sharp cut. The Inventor thinks
that he has found a great Improvement for
this in a ?mall cylinder of sapphire, which
la drawn alonjf the track and enters the
deepest parts of it. thus making a wwa
more perfect reproduction of th sou-c
In fact, the improvement Is fo great that a
little cvllnder Klves as rrooi a reproduction
as has been obtainable hitherto with a big
cylinder. Kvrry one may not be awara
that the records ure made with a little)
rod of sapphire that cuts a path one two
thousandth of an inch deep.
