THE WASHINGTON HERALD. SUNDAY, JANUARY 14. 1912.
Firm opening, followed
by selling, due to European
situation and bankinvesti-gation.
Ill- T1I03IAS C. SIIOTWKLL.
New York. Jan. IX Nervousness over
the European situation, and the Investi
gation of the banks that la to be ordered
In a tew days by Congress, caused selling
it stocks In Wall street to-day. alter a firm
opening-. The foreign situation was re
flected in a decline of two points in Can
adian Pacific. Reading reflected the bank
Inquiry. The close was at the low levels
of the day. Pacific Mall was one excep
tion. At one time It was a point over
Friday's closing. With the Panama
Canal soon to be opened. Pacific Mall
stock Is attracting much attention. The
Lehigh melon took the shape of a 10 per
cent dividend during the week.
Union Pacific, which had been sold free
ly early In the week, became steady.
Strength was seen In numerous special
ties, and the wholesale market seemed as
though banking interests were Interested.
The United States Steel "Corporation
surprised the street with unfilled orders
on Its books at the end of December. It
Is also stated that orders taken since
January 1 hate been at the rate of
nearly 70.000 tons a day. This means
that the trust Is filled with business to
run at almost full capacity through the
summer The business is taken, how
ever, at low prices, so that the heavy
tonnage does not mean large earnings.
Some Steel authorities claim that the
dividend will barely be earned. However,
they have not taken Into consideration
the large earnings of the trust from Its
cement and railroad properties
The fire In the Equitable Building re
sulted In comparatively little actual
financial loss. The building had been
written down on the books of the com
pany until It was considered an Incum
brance. There was much apprehension the
first two days regarding the safety of
more than 11.000.000.000 of cash that were
burled In the ruins, but before the week
was ended most of these securities had
been removed, and found In perfect con
dition. It was decided by the rules committee,
but not officially announced, that an In
vestigation would be made of the bank
ing situation In Its relations with the
trusts problem. Samuel Untermyer, At
torney General Wlckersham, and Secre
tary Nagel will advise the rules com
mittee Monday bow to continue in this
business. Wall street's Interest in the
European war Is due largely to a belief
that there will be heavy sales t Ameri
can securities by Tuesday. Sudden Bil
ling from Europe might result in & break.

Canadian Pidfic Ballwsj It Is slso learned that it is the intention
of the rompssr to immediitrly cnrnTnencw ore shlpptcff by means of
sleiib transport from ths mines to Three Forts. This can more easily
be done in the winter time then in the summer time. At the time
that the list shipment of ore were made before the fire tn the Koote
nsy district, 50 per cent zinc spelter wss selling st 5 cents a pound.
To-dsy the price has risen to 7 cents a pound, and it is figured that
that incresse in price wfll more then pay the cost of shippins.
AU of the psrty who recently stilted the mine eijscsaed themserres
ss satisfied with the property, which they state is the best property ot
the kind which they bare erer seen, and Mr. Lanlgsn states that the
reports of the sine experts snd engineers engsged by the Csnsdlaa
Pacific Itsilwsy prerious to building the rosd were of an exceptionally
Qnonun of Director la 'Winnipeg;.
With the sdditioo of the shore gentlemen to the bosrd and taking
sn actite interest in the mine's affairs, it is anticipated that the
Wbmlreg and Western Canadian shareholders wm feel much mora
confidence in the stock. With the presence in Winnipeg of th managing
director, G. W, Lopjr, a quorum of the directors can be got together In the
city at any th". and s soon as they hare had an cvportnnitr of set

Here's an Unusual Opportunity for
A Safe and Profitable Investment
Which -Should Command ,the Immediate Attention of
Those Having Large as Well as Small Means.
It is an established fact, as every one familiar with the earnings of fire insurance com
panies in America and Europe knows, that FIRE INSURANCE STOCK AS AN IN
VESTMENT IS AMONG THE SAFEST AND MOST PROFITABLE IN THE
It's a matter of record that THE AVERAGE NET EARNINGS
for 1910 on the capital stock of American Fire Insurance companies
capitalized at $1,000,000 or more was 401. ( ttfEJSSSTS&B
The earnings of ONE American company was 326.
Of this amount 23.3 was paid in CASH DIVIDENDS and the balance of the net earn
ings went to the surplus fund of the companies, which surplus also belongs to the stock
holders. It is also a well-known fact that about ONE-THIRD of the fire insurance carried on
AMERICAN PROPERTY is placed in FOREIGN COMPANIES thus showing not
only the room, but the need, for MORE big, strong American companies of character.
With the foregoing facts in mind, THE NATIONAL ASSURANCE COMPANY
was organized and incorporated under the laws of Delaware, with an authorized capital
of $1,000,000 and an authorized surplus of $1,000,000, and with headquarters in the city
THE CHARTER of the company is of the BROADEST CHARACTER, permitting
it, if it so desires, to engage in every conceivable form of insurance, includinglire, life,
accident, health, boiler, burglary, marine, casualty, &c, and may buy, sell, lease, and other
wise acquire and dispose of all kinds of real and personal property, including mortgages
on real estate and securities in all approved financial institutions.
This company has already secured several hundred agents in several States to represent it, which assures an excellent
premium income, and by the time the company enters the active field it will have a complete agency organization without
extra cost, as this work is going on with the sale of stock.
The company believes it has assurances of so much good business that discrimination will be needed to determine "as
to what to accept and what to reject, but we assure our co-partners that only risks of the best quality and proportionate
quantity will be written.
THIS IS THE LARGEST INSTITUTION OF THE
KIND EVER ATTEMPTED IN WASHINGTON
and should especially appeal to those interested in the INDUSTRIAL DEVELOP
MENT of Washington and indirectly to the upbuilding of the National Capital itself.
The officers and directors of the company are men of high standing and character,
many of them accustomed to handling large enterprises, and the success of the company
is assured from the start.
A LIMITED AMOUNT OF STOCK IS OFFERED AT $20 PER SHARE-$10
GOING TO CAPITAL AND $10 TO SURPLUS. SUBSCRIPTIONS MAY BE
PAID IN tULL, OR, IF DESIRED, 10 DOWN AND 10 MONTHLY.
There is no promoters' or bonus stock, or commissions paid to anybody, and no ad
vantage of any character is allowed to one stockholder over another. Officers, directors,
and stockholders are absolutely on the same footing and pay the same amount per share
IN CASH. No officer will be paid a salary or any compensation until the company is
actually doing business. '
There has already been subscribed enough capital stock to justify th& company in be
ginning business when the unpaid installments are collected.
