WHEN PENNA. CO.
Parent Company's Shares
Dropped a Point on the
v Local Exchange and
Whole List Turned Weak
Up to tho time tho news reached tho
financial district that the Pennsylvania
Compnuy'tt usual December dividend had
been reduced from 4 per cent, to 1 per
cent, the local market merely marked
tlmo todoy. But when the Pennsylvania
Railroad's chief subsidiary gave out thh
action on tne tho part of the board,
prices began to recede, all around. Not
only was Pennsylvania Itself affected, but
the general list on well declined. Includ
ing Itapld Transit, Cambria Steel, Lehigh
Valley, Heading, United Gas Improve
ment, Union Traction and Electric and
Although the Pennsylvania Company's
dividend has boen at the rate of 7 per
cent, per annum the payments have been
mado 4 per cent. In December and 3 per
cent. In June. Just what the annual rate
will bo henceforth Is, of course, not cer
tain, and depends upon futuro business
conditions. All of tho stock la owned
by the Pennsylvania Railroad, which Is,
therefore, directly nffected by tho loss
of dividends. This, naturally, caused the
street uneasiness ns to what action the
parent company would tako regarding Its
present fi per cent, distribution. A week
from today tho directors of the "Pan
Handle," another Important subsidiary,
meet to act on that dividend. Tho next
Pennsylvania disbursement Is due In
Tho Pennsylvania Company will havo
paid this year, including tho present dis
tribution, only 1 ptr cent. Into tho 1 all
road's treasury. This means a loss of
$2,400,000, or about 4 of 1 per cent, on tho
railroad's stock. The street had looked
for a reduction, but not moro than 2
per cent., so that the announcement
caused something of n chill In financial
circles. Pennsylvania fell from 03 9-16 to
31s in this market. Tho minimum on tho
stock is o"i.
Up to 1 o'clock It was a typical holiday
session today. Stcfcks scarcely fluctuated
chungo today. Stocks scarcely fluctuated
at all throughout the morning, except for
tho offering down of 100 shares of Lehigh
Valley Transit preferred from 28 to 271i
bfore a nale could be effected. Aa the day
advanced the tono became heavier, reflect
ing the depressed condition of tho New
York list. United States Steel cased off
and the other so-called arbitrage Issues
wero also Inclined to sag. In tho bond
list similar dullness prevailed. Electric
and People's 4s declined nearly a point
Disappointment Was expressed over tho
market's failuro to respond to the an
nouncement made by tho United States
Steel Corporation concerning wages. This
action on tho part of the big Industrial
company was regarded as an Indication
ot a hopeful attitude towards future

IS NERYOUS TODAY
Opens Lbwcr, Rallies, But
Breaks Again and Fin
ishes Below Yesterday's
CHICAGO, Deo. 23. Trade in wheat was
nctlvo again today, but the market was
nervous. It 'opened lower, rallied, but
broke again and finished below yester
day's last prices.
Thero was considerable holiday profit-.
taking and sellers were influenced by an
unconfirmed report that the Dardanelles
had been forced by the allied fleet. Spec
ulators assumed this would rclenso a
great deal of wheat. Ignoring th fact
that tho ports of southern Itussla are
closed becauso of Ice, and contain In the
aggregate less than 0,000,000 bushels ot
wheat. The train service, moreover, Is'
occupied to capacity for troops and sup
plies. There was more heavy export bus
iness, today's sales bolng estimated at
8,000,000 bushels In all positions. Pur
chases made by representatives of tho
Italian Government amounted to 1,125,000
bushels. Futures closed U to ic lower
The corn market kept within a narrow
range, but displayed a strong" undertone,
desplto holiday proflt-taklnr by a large
number of longs. The dips in wheat also
led to a great deal of selling. Full winter
feeding prevails oyer tho cntlro corn belt.
There was, as yesterday. Important buv-
Ing of corn by large local cash Interests.
A fairly good domestlo and export busi
ness was done. Futures closed to Vic.
Oats showed material strength, although
there lias been a great deal of profit-taking
by longo. A sale of 1,000,000 bushels
was made hero today to the Italian
Government. The British Government
bought 1,000,000 bushels at Winnipeg.
Futures closed VI to V4c. higher.
Provisions held very nearly even most
of the day, although qulto a business
was done. New Investors bought pork
and ribs and packers bought lard, while
longs took profits.
Leading futures ranged as follows:

RUSSIAN SHARES RALLY
London Market Showed Eirmncas.
Hope for Resumption Jan. 4.
LONDON, Dec. 23, It was taken for
granted today that the Stock Exchange
will be reopened for business on January
4. It is probable that official announce
ment of the resumption of business will
be made through the Treasury. It Is
expected that minimum prices for se
curities will be extended and that only
cash transactions will be permitted but
jobbers will probably be allowed certain
discretion In making quotations.
There was a large attendance ot
brokers In the street today, but dealings
In securities were not large, being of a
holiday character. There waa a rally In
Russians cn better news as to the prog
ress of the Czar's troops In Poland. Bra
zilian Issues had a good tone. Tin shares
wera harder. In sympathy with the metaJ,
The American group was Idle. Rates for
loans and discounts were weak. The
Bank of England was a light discounter
of pre-morotorium bills.
Railroad Securities of the United States
is the People's Problem
It is the broad principle involved,
' -: not techriicalities, that must be solved
We have prepared a pamphlet (No. 1011) giving a visual
