1.00311S MYSTERY DEEPER.
Authorities Unable to Find Any
Trace of the Missing Man.
Lor.don. June 25.— The mystery which sur
rounds the disappearance of Kent J. Loomis i*
no nearer solution. Not a solitary clew has re
sulted from nearly a week's widespread Investi
gation. Consul General Evar.s and the consuls
are making all possible Inquiries, but without
the faintest trace of the missing man. Tha
statement of Gustave Flamm, of San Francisco,
a passenger on the Kats-r Wllhelm 11. that he
saw Loomis at Plymouth is not corrooorated.
The American Consul at that port says the Bo<ird
of Trade figures, which presumably tal'.y with
the number of passengers who left the steamer,
enow that 153 persons landed, all of whom gave
their names. These tally wtth the passenger
lift, and Mr. Loomis's name la not among them.
Tha agents of the steamship line have been
searching Plymouth since the afternoon of June
20. hut no man of the nnme of Loomis. or any
person answering his description, is at any hotel
In Plymouth. Inquiries mad* at the railroad
station at Plymouth regarding any Americans
departing have been equally futile. One Amer
ican who left there for London in the evening
of June £t the day after the Kaiser Wilhelm II
touched at Plymouth, and who It was thought
might have been Mr. Loomis, proved to be many
years older than the missing man.
At the request of Consul General Evans, tha
hospitals at Plymouth are now being searched.
Scotland Yard also has the affair In hand, and
the English papers, especially the local papers at
Plymouth, continue to give prominence to the
American's disappearance; so If Mr. Loomis Is
In England and in possession of his faculties
he could scarcely fall to know he la being looked
The authorities here are unable to form even
a conjectural explanation of Mr. Loomis's dis
appearance. The theory that he fell overboard
finds no support, as it Is said that It would be
almost Impossible for a small man to fall over
the high deckralls, especially when the s*a> is
particularly calm, as It was In this casa. The
bright moonlight also practically precluded such
an occurrence without attracting notice from the
hundreds of passengers and the many officers
who thronged the liner's decks when neartng
Pl> mouth. The suggestion that Mr. Loomis
may have unintentionally disembarked at
Plymouth Is now regarded as out of the ques
tion. From on* of Mr. Loomis's fellow passen
gers it Is learned that W. H. Ellis and Mr.
Loomis were constantly together, and were
known as Intimate friends. Mr. Loomis did not
make many acquaintances. Several well known
Americans who came to London by the boat
train say that they did not even know he was
The utter failure of all efforts here and on the
Continent to discover any trace of the missing
man excites much interest and no little appre
hension among the large class of the public tak
ing transatlantic voyages or whose friends often
cross the Atlantic.
The circumstances connecting Mr. Loorois with
the Abyssinian treaty create especial Interest
here, as the sphere of Influence of that country
Is one of the current questions especially en
gaging th« attention of European diplomats, and
Is one of the subjects on which confidential com
munications are being exchanged between Great
Britain and Russia.
Paris. June 25.— The disappearance of Mr.
Loomls still remains a mystery her*. The of
ficials who are conducting the search for the
missing man say there Is no truth In the re
port published by a London newspaper to the
effect that Loomls was seen here yesterday.
T!»« announcement probably resulted from con
fusing the names of Loomls and W. H. Kil.s.
The latter sailed from Marsoilles this aXtarnoon

noon for Abyssinia with W. J. Ellis. carrying
the box containing the commercial treaty be
tween the United States and Abyssinia on beard.
Mr. Ellis was accompanied by a secretary and a
servant. Careful Inquiry aboard the ship and
at the offices of the company, showed that Kent
J. Loomis was not aboard tha vessel. So far as
can be ascertained. Mr. Ellis had no information
concerning Mr. Loomis. The consulate hero Is
also without Information.

The Fiiinri-i: World.
Important in Influence— inftnsßsm; »
upon the security market Is the conclusion at
the work of the Republican National Conven
tion. The unanimous nomination of President
Roosevelt to succeed himself testifies to party
harmony a"d public confidence in his Admin
istration. Whatever criticism may be levelled
at the President, none can accuse him of secr»
tlveness or dubious methods— record is clear
and open. There was a time, not so long ago,
when a certain element li» Wall Street proteased
distrust of the President— endeavoring to arousa
the opinion that he was inimical to capitalize
Interests. This, of course, was based upon the
government suit against the Northern Securities
Company. That suit was pressed to conclusion
and won— and what happened? The defendants
promptly acquiesced In the construction of law
promulgated by the Supreme Court, and action
is now being taken to adjust the status of the
company In accordance with the Interpreted law
of the land. All Is proceeding to orderly and
frtctionless manner. And it Is recognized that
the President's action was not due to hostility
to capital nor to efforts to win popularity, bat
was solely, from his point of view, the proper
performance of a public duty. Prophscy thai
the suit would be followed by indiscriminate at
tack upon corporations is found to be false.
Wall Street and the financial world realize thlat
the nomination of Theodore Roosevelt is accept
able to our country's business Interests, and th«
nominee for Vice- President is a sate, sound man,
adding strength to the ticket.
The Republican platform's treatment of all
Issues— notably the tariff and the trusts — is dts>
nifled, conservative and reassuring. So far as
the Republican party Is concerned. Wall Street
can dismiss politics from consideration. And
there is some reason to hope that the Democracy
will return to a sane, healthful position under
leadership quite different from that of 1806 and
1900. If so, "Presidential year" evil Influence
upon Wall Street affairs will be greatly dimin
ished, for the world of finance and business ha*
nothing to fear from temperate discussion 03
honest difference of opinion.
That these facts are recognized is evident fron»
the course of the market. Price changes for th»
week, while not wide, are for a large majority
of securities la the nature of gains. A leading
position has been taken marketwise by Unit*!
States Steel preferred, and Its Improvement Is o£

Its financial plan, and which threatened to dis
turb the market, has more than MM Its o.vn,
disproving pessimistic prophecy— «o far. How.
ever opinion may differ as to the merits of th«
plan. It 13 demonstrated that sufficiently power*
ful Interests indorse It to prevent its being a,
general market menace.
Appreciation In price of Toledo. St. Louis and
"Western Issues confirms the views advanced la
this column as to this property, regarding which
further signifying details are not out of place.
Its tonnage Is agricultural to a large extent. but
not of larger proportions than on many other
roads, while It enjoys what few enjoy— an ex
ceedingly Important movement of manufactures.
Carefully analyzed. In fact, there seeaas to b«
much stronger elements In the make-up of Its
business than the average, manufactures stand

less than products of agriculture, which f.gara
for 30.47 per cent, while products of HBlMi fur

Finally, it. may be noted that, where there was
a surplus of only $8*2.956 for the company's first
year, there was a surplus of §171.639 for the last
year. In the mean time maintenance of property
from earnings rising from $651,000 for ISO! to
SS9S.OOO for 1903. And present earnings should
rise further lavgely and continuously, the nscsl
year now ending surpassing ail P» s t records.
There is everything to encourage owners of the
property In such strikingly favorable changes.
An Inspiriting current feature is the lively up
ward movement In Soo Line securities coincident
with a related rise in Canadian Pacific T>.«
fact that most of the buying arigbuttw frora
heavy banking interests in Canada and England
shows that facts are appreciated abroad more
than at present in Wall Street. Sco Lire's
growth and fundamentally strong position cay*
been previously noted here, and market move
ment justices the opinion 50 elaborated. Earn
ings of the company continue to increase '.n most
gratifying manner, and are certain or swift ex
pansion now that its new Winnipeg: connections
are about to become operative.
During the week the United States Realty as-
Construction Company made public Its second
annual report, which fully conSrmed preliminary
statements. It was or frank end ample cHarac
ter. affording stockholders detailed Information
and testifying to an earning power preae.it and
prospective sufficient to place the company
among the most successful enterprises of the
day. A net income is shown for eleven months
approximating §1.500.000. from which was de
ducted about 5500.000 represer.tins the amount
written off securities held to brins them to pres
ent market value. The conservative character
of this writing off is evidenced by the price •<
5,500 shares of United States Steel preferred.
which Is marked down to 33^. and c€ 600 United
States Steel 5 per cent bond?, which are marked
down to 73 1 ». This is. Indeed, ultra-conserva
tism. The success of the reorganization plan is
assured. Yet. professionally. Wall Street so far
falls to recognize the strength of Realty's pc?(
t!on. the character of its assets, and the vast
possibilities of its earning power.
Local tractions continue an interesting f£at«
ure of the market. Interborou^n. Manhattan
and Brooklyn Rapid Transit are enjoying a
steady upward Impulse. Brooklyn Rapid Tran
sit earnings continue to expand with uniform
regularity. Notable testimony to the growing
favor of Its securities is furnished by the an
nounced sale of $3,000,000 of Its convertible is
to important financial institutions. The only
laggard in the traction group is Metropolitan,
•gainst which a virulent bear attack Is cease
lessly directed. The declaration of Its regular
dividend had no effect upon the speculative
m.nd, although its prophesied reduction had
been one of the, main "reasons" for bear selling.
Splendid crop weather— politics—plenti
ful money; these are governing factors.
