THE LOCAL STOCK MARKET.
A GOOD SHOWING FOR BUT FIVE
Metropolitan Kailroad the Leading Fea
ture "Washington Gas Stock Stroncor
Improvement in Chesapeake and Po
tomac Telcplt one Stock National Un
ion Insurance Stock Stronger.
There was a decided improvement In the
tone of the local stock market last week, and
the volume of business for the five business
days showed a gratifying increase. The fea
ture of the week was the depression In Metro
politan Railroad stock, which on Tuesday
sold to the extent of 10 6hares at 97. This Is
the lowest price at which this stock has sold
for over three years, and shows a drop from
the prices of a year ago of nearly $80 per
share, and from the quoted prices of a week
ago of about 10 per cent. The Immediate
cause of the drop was thought to be the pro
posal of the company, by a circular Issued
last Monday, to allot to the stockholders, pro
rata, according to the number of shares
owned by each, of $100,000 convertible bonds,
bearinc 0 per cent. Interest, which bonds at
the expiration of one year from their date, at
the option of the holder, were to be ex
changeable into the 6tock of the company at
$100 per share. The circular was doubtless
understood to Imply that as the company pro
posed to furnish its 6tock at $100 there was
little probability that it would for some time
command a better price. At the close of the
week there was a better feeling manifest, and
the bid was advanced to 100, with the lowest
offering at 110. It is 6aid that orders are on
the market for several hundred shares at 100.
The Metropolitan Company is making exten
sive preparations for introducing electric
storage battery cars, and owing to a favora
ble arrangement made with the Inventor of
the system to be used tho expense will bo
much less than is generally supposed. Exten
sive power-houses are in course of erec
tion at the P-street stables.
There were no public 6ales of Graphophone
stock. Privately 50 shares changed hands
several times, first by a reluctant seller,
obliged to have the money, at 0; later at 0 to
a broker, who said his order was to buy at 0.
The lowest offered of this 6tock was at 7.
There is nothing new In the Graphophone
situation. The laws of New York allow one
month for an assignee to file his schedules be
fore proceedings can be taken toward wind
ing up a business. As this period since Mr.
Llppencott's assignment will not expire before
the 4tb of June It has not been possible for
the directors of the Graphophone Company to
take any active measures toward obtaining a
settlement in the premises. In the meanwhile
the improvements in the machine are pro
gressing very satisfactorily.
There are-already indications of the improve
ment predicted in tbis article as likely to take
place In Washington Ga6 stock. For 43
shares 44 J was paid and 3 shares bought 44.
At the close 44 was the lowest price at which
this 6tock was offered.
There was a good market for National
Union Insurance stock la6t week. It opened
with sales at 18J, sold up to 16J, and closed
with a sale of 25 shares at 19, a rise of nearly
$1 per slihre, which 16 over 5 per cent.
The market continues good for American
Security and Trust stock. Tho aggregate
sales were 120 6hares, mostly at S0J and SO.
The closing bid was 80, the lowest offering 82.
There Is an Improving tone manifest In Ches
apeake and Potomac Telephone stock. Ten
shares brought 62, and 30 62. There are in
dications that this stock will speedily bring
much better prices. The lowest offering at
the close was at 63. This offer will probably
bo withdrawn and a better price demanded.
Tho only 6ale of Pennsylvania Telephone
stock recorded for many months was made on
Friday. It was of 25 shares, and brought but
$24, and not $25, as published. This sale was
made for an out-of-town holder, not aware,
doubtless, that tho usual bid of 25 "for a
quotation" $1,000 worth Is merely nominal,
nobody expecting that a stock so valuable
would be allowed to go for such an inade
quate price. This company is prospering
greatly, Its earnings increasing steadily, and
its 6tock will pay at 25 just 8 per cent. As
compared with Chesapeake and Potomac, the
Pennsylvania at 40 on its present dividend
would yield the same return as the former
would at 50, which Is just $13 less than the
Chesapeake can be bought for.
There Is an advancing tendency In Wash
ington Loan and Trust stock. The aggregate
sales were 22 shares at from 96 to 96?.,
Eckington Railroad 6tock is looking
stronger. Ten shares brought 491, 10 50, and
8 50. The last sale was at 50, the lowest off
ering at 51.
The business In bank stocks last week wa6
but small. Twenty shares of We6t End
brought 101. For 10 Lincoln Bank 101i was
paid, 10 went for 101, and 10 for 102. There is
much quiet satisfaction expressed at the fact
that the announcement of the purchase by
tho Lincoln Bank of the property at the north
west corner of Ninth and D streets is now un
derstood to have been premature. The recent
weakness of this 6tock is believed to have
been duo to this supposed purchase of real
estate, for it is a well-known principle of
banking that In most instances It Is extremely
bad policy to tie up In such a permanent
form a large proportion of capital which
should be held within easy reach at all times,
There are notable exceptions to thlB rule m
this city, however. There were but 3 shares
of Columbia Bank stock sold last week; It
brought 152. The same price Ib offered for
more, with the lowest offering at 156.
Tho lowest sale of Washington and
Georgetown Railroad stock recorded for
several years was made la6t week.
Five shares went for 210. There was a further
offering at211, with 200 bid. Belt Lino also
sold off. Twenty-two Bhares brought 48, and
There were but 10 shares U. S. Elec
tric Lighting 6tock sold last week. It
was sold very low. bringing 100. The closing
bid was 158, and 165 the lowest offerine. This
stock is so firmly held that a very limited de
maud would carry It much beyond current
Now that the payment of taxes for tho year
is over, there Is likely to be more money seek
ing Investment In stocks. It is, however, a
gratifying fact, and Indicates the ease in the
local money market, that for many yeais the
May payments of taxes have not been met
with so great apparent comfort and convenience.
