Settlement of Anthracite Strike
Causes TavoraMe Tarn
Br THOMAS C. JHOTWELt.
New Tork. April 3. Optimism was
rampant In "Wall street to-day. The.
weather news was good and the crop
prospects were brightened In all parti
of the country. Announcement wu
made that terms of settlement uad been
agreed upon between the anthracite op
erators and the miners that would she
the men an Advance of 10 per cent In
waxes and a. four years contract. The
stock market celebrated with about a.
dozen new hlsh Records, and these rec
ords were In such Issues as left no
doubt as to the stability of the banking
Interests behind them.
Among the stocks making' these rec
ords were New Tork CentraL ehlgh
Valley, and Beading; which, sold higher
than for peyeral years. Beet Sugar.
American Can, "and United States Rub
ber, which established absolutely new
high .prices; Mexican Petroleum, Peo
ple's Gas, and "Wabash bonds.
Perhaps the most excitement was
caused by the advance in People's Gas
and C"- T Gas tock opened at
.about the level of the previous day,
and showed no sign of activity until the
decision was handed down In Chicago,
authorizing the company to charge SS
cents for gas. ThCvClty had forced the
price down to "S. Aa appeal will be
"taken, this time by the city, but this
final decision cannot be had for two
3 ears, and in the meantime the com
pany can charge the additional price.
The stock advanced more than fha
points and closed near the tog,
In American Can there was no activ
ity of importance until afternoon, when
the stock suddenly moved up trom
to SU on very heavy transactions.
becominc apparent that practically
all the Can stock has been locked Up In
pursuance of the agreement of Insiders
to hold for several years. Bubber ls-
"sues also advanced, the common stock.
going tnree points nigner. -inc. expla
nation of this move was given in this
column several days ago In a state
ment that the report to be made pub
lic at the annual meeting In the "future
will show earnings on the commpn stock
of above 12 per cen. The company is
producing 1.000 automobile tires a day
in its new factory, and is making k
profit of $3 each, or COCO a day. Thus,
the company has an assured income of
$1 .506. 000 net in addition, to everything
that it had last year. Its general busi
ness also is good.
Beet Sugar made a high record n pre
liminary estimates of profits for the year,
which show 13L2 per cent earned on the
common stock. The company is paying
only 5 per cent and these earnings as-
sure a continuation of that dividend at
least. If not something extra, it Is un
derstood to be the policy of the board to
maintain the present dividend, as -they
believe the stock would sell better with a
certainty of 5 per ctnt than with a pos
?fot Affected by Mexlsn.
Mexican Petroleum, which was among
the record breakers, will not be affected
by- the disturbances In Mexico. In fact,
much of the bullish sentimerA In this
