year. The nltuatlon, as reflected In develop
ments In the various markets In which
open trading Is permitted, was far bright
er today than at any time eltica the stock
Dealings In short-term notes were on a
large scalo at advancing prices In New
York, with Consolidated Qas notes, which
rrcro brought out on a 6H per cent, basis,
selling on a 5' per cent, basis. Baltimore
find Ohio notes were quoted at OS'U bid,

FIrallar actlTity and strength was noted
In Now York city notes, the one-year
notes selling at the- new high record of
mi. Tha 4Hs of 1857 were In brIMt de
.niand at 100', but were not offered under
101. Good long-term bonds were also In
demand, with tho supplj too scant to
permit tho execution of larce buying or
ders. In both short and long term Is
sues many orders were for amounts of
a quarter of a million dollars or more.
Tho money situation has also mate
rially Improved In Now York. Placing
the standing loans aMde as a fixed ele
ment, the money market may now bo
regarded ns on a 6 per cent, basis for
time and call loans. A loan of $1 cOO.OiM
call money waR made late yesterdav at
5H per cent., and time money Is offered
for all dates up to 3 months at 6 per
cent. Margin of Srt to 3o per cent, are
required on all new accommodations an 1
collateral must bo of high class, but tho
fact that accommodation Is obtainable
presents a new feature In the money
This Improved situation was accom
panied by a change In tho character of
tho trading In that group of brokers
referred to as the New street curb. This

a few of the trades made nt that low
range have been completed bv the de
livery of stork. There were to be seen
on the adjoining sidewalks numerous in
tending small buyers, seeking to purchase
small lots of low and medium-priced
stocks for cash, but they were able to
make only n few purchases
A better tone was also shown In the
copper metal market, although most of
the sales were mado at 1l2C, with somo

WAR RISK RATES ADVANCED
Rise From One-Half of One Per Cent,
to One Per Cent.
Presence of mines off the Irish coast,
which sent the British steamship Man
chester Commorco to destruction, has
caused nn Increase In war risk Insur
ance rates. The rates lit the transatlantic
trade advanced today from one-half of
1 per cent, to 1 per cent. Tho extent of
tho mine fields laid by Germany In the
North Sea. and the UiirIIsIi Channel Is un
known, which makes tho risk to vessels
plying In those waters great.
At ptcscnt tho underwriters arc en
deavoring to arrive at some basis where
by reinsurance of cotton risks can be
effected. They are anxious to facilitate
the movement of cotton. Hut the British
Underwriters will not Insure asalnst cap
ture. Most of the business of reinsuring
the cotton will, therefore, fall upon Amer
ican companies It Is expected, however,
that they will not have to carry the en
tire burden, as the British underwriters
will write the bulk of the usual marine
ON PAR WITH RISK'S
OF EVERHAY LIFE
Broker Declares It Is Not
Gambling Unless Applied
to All Departments of the
The common statement hoard these
days that speculation Is dend and will
never revive, and that tho Stock Ex
changes no longer have a function to
fulfil, Is very Interesting, but perhaps
If tho meaning of speculation and Its
accompanying phase, marginal dealings,
were better understood the criticism
heard from time to time would be of a
The primary motive of speculation of
any kind Is a desire for a profit. Most
people connect speculation with securities
only and do not understand tho full
scope of the word. Tho farmer raising
his crop Is neer accused of speculation.
The position of the cotton grower today
Illustrates to a nicety the speculative pos
sibilities of this department of American
industry. When the present cotton crop
was planted It was done with the sole
Intent of selling It at a profit. In a great
many casos the planter borrowed at his
bank on the prospective prollt and spent
the funds In rnlslng the crop. He now
finds himself In the unpre:cdentod posi
tion of not lx-lng able to market the
fruits of his toll and cannot pay his
notes. H- has done what a security spec
ulator often does He has bought his
orop on tho margin. He has put 20 per
cent. In labor In it and the banks have
advanced fO per cent In cash, and with
the price of the commodity declining to
a point where he cannot get his labor out
of It. In fact cannot realize enough to
pay the amount borrowed, then he, like
the man who buys securities which de
cline, must hold his product until such
a prico Is reached where he can sell at a
profit, or sell for what he can get and
take his loss
Was not tho cotton grower speculating
on such a good demand for cotton when
tie plnnted It as to net him a proflf
The grower of nhat and other grains
plants his orop with the samo hope, and
in fact ovory enterprise Is gono Into with
tho hope of a profit, and the business
situation Is shrewdly considered by the
on making the ventuie.
When a piece of property Is purchased
with a o.ish pimt-'it and the ba'.anco
borrowed on mortgage tho buyer has ono
of two purposes first, either ho considers
tne property i.heap and hopes to sell at
a profit, or. secondly, he is uttrartcd to
It for 'hing purposes und hopes to be a!lo
ultimately to pay for It In full and own
It. Therefore, we still have the elements
When securities aro purchased on mar
gin tho same principles aro involved. The
purchaser deposits 2ft per cent of tho
purchase price He has tho same mo
tive. He Is either of the feeling that
tho security, by reason of one of a great
many means, viz , the condition of bus
iness throughout the country, or the char
acter of the business, which might have
unusual possibilities. Is cheap, and he ex
poets ultimately to sell It at a profit, or
&ri ho is attracted by tho dividend re
turn or other consideration, and intends,
if possible, to own the security outright,
and considers the SO por cent, paid at tho
statt merely the first Instalment. In
either case the predominating factor Is
speculation, and he Is taking advantage
of this particular feature.
Perhaps the greatest misnomer given to
this form of trading in securities Is gam
b'ln anl that It is merely netting on the
future of the market. This Is not the
case, unless it 1b applied to all depart
ments of trade. Is tho cotton grower

A purchaser takes 100 shares of V. G I.

broker makes his commission of $35 on
the whole transaction, and pays over to
the purchaser the balance of (2100 Does
this coma out of any one? Does the

It all depends on the point of view!

TRADE IN WHEAT
FAIR IN ACTIVITY,
Commission Houses Have
Fair Buying Orders at
Opening of Chicago Grain
CHICAGO, Oct. 23,-Trade In wheat this
mornliifr was fairly active and tho market
opened firmer. Commission houses had
fair buying orders and It was believed
that Europe wna purchasing contracts
ngralnst requirements. But bullish senti
ment was not pronounced, as the trade
Is becoming Impressed by continued
liberal receipts from the farms, which
are offsetting sales for export nnd after
the start the gain was lost.
Yesterday's export business was esti
mated at l,90o,000 bushela. Ths winter
wheat belt needs moisture and the be
lief Is growing that the area sown will
not bo as great as was expected some
weeks ago. Advices from France Bald
the shortage In grain there was becoming
pronounced, notwithstanding largo pur
chases. Consumption In that country Is
on a heavy scalo and native offers aro
email. Wheat at Paris was up lc. to
day and flour lc. higher. Scandinavia,
Norway nnd Holland are bidding freely
for all offers nnd are willing to meet
the higher views of holders.
Wheat shipments from Argentina for
the week are estimated at S0.000 bushels,
nnd the wheat crop of llulgarla at 45,
931,000 bushels. The average crop Is about
fO.OOO.OOO. Futures at Iiverpool were not
quoted today, but the undertone was
very llrm. Jlanltobas and hard winter
there were up 1 to 3d.
Corn was quiet und easier. Some trad-,
ers said, however, that thoy believed thero
was too much company on the bear side.
Corn nt Liverpool wns firm. The easiness
In America and predictions of large ship
ments from Argentina were without In
fluence at Liverpool. Exports from Argen
tina for the week wore estimated nt
Oats declined, with selling rather gen
eral. The export movement continues
Provisions wero lower on larger re
