Advances'Tv?elve Points to Highest
. .Price on Eecord General Tone
of the Market Strong.
AMEBICAN ICE ADVAHCES
By BAimO?r SIIIIVICE.
New Tork; July 3. While there were a
few weak spots, the general, tone of the
market io-day wa's good. General Chem
ical common stock created a sensation by
advancing twelve points to the blcbest
price on" record on the first sales of the
day at ITS. There were not any rumors
of extra disbursements to help the ad
vance, but as the stock is a very closely
held specialty, the advance might have
been manipulated. This stock and
the decline in National Biscuit were due
to the great strides that the Loose Wiles
management are making In the biscuit
and cracker business.
Pool operations helped American Ice
to an advance of a full point on the first
few transactions. International Paper
Issues were weak due to overbuying on the
recent rise. Consolidated Gas advanced
In anticipation of the declaration of an
extra dividend at the directors" meeting in
the afternoon, but after that meeting
had been held and the dividend de
clared only at the usual rate, the price
fell again. General Electric Jumped rap
idly after the declaration of the30 per
cent, extra dividend. Although there
were some declines in sales between the
higher ones representing profit taking.
Texas Company was strong.
The General Electric Company directors
declared a 30 per cent extra stock divi
dend to-day. which will bring the out
standing capital stock from XU.fOO.KO to
ever J100.WO.000. The recent strength of
the stock has been based upon the knowl
edge that this increase would be made,
and that a stock dividend would result.
The authorized capital stock will be in
creased from JSO.000,000 to J1C8.OO0.O00. The
dividend will be paid for by the com
pany's surplus account. It Is given to
partly recoup the stockholders for divi
dends which have been passed or reduced
Clirralral Stock Sonr.
"General Chemical Company stock has
been making phenomenal gains on the
market recently, and it is due largely to
the strong financial position of the com
pany. Net profits have Increased- each
year at a steady rate, going from J1.227,
K7 in 1908 to SS.121.SS0 for 1811.
Directors of the Consolidated Gas
Company at their meeting to-day failed
to take any action regarding the extra
dividends which will eventually be given
stockholders to make up for the reduc
tion in the rate from 1909. They merely
declared the regular disbursements, but
interests in touch with the company's
affairs say that it is practically" a cer
tainty that the back dividends will be
paid in the near future.
The annual report of the American
Glue Company for the fiscal year ended
May 31 showed net earnings of JH2.4S3,
the smallest for any year since the 1909
fiscal period. During the year the float
ing debt was reduced from SL53.S45 to
ST50.S60. and further reduction will be
made during this year.
Time money rates for the longer ma
turities have advanced slightly within
the last few days, although call money
and short time loans are still given by
the banks at the prevailing easy rates.
The United Cigar Stores Company of
America was incorporated at Trenton to
day with an authorized capitalization of
J35.000.000. consisting of J30.000.000 common,
and J5.O0O.O0O 7 per cent preferred stock.
Only 127,000,000 common and (1500.000 pre
ferred will be Issued at this time, the
balance being held in the treasury for
new financing when needed. The out
(Undine J3.600.CCO bonds of the Corpora
tion of the United Cigar Stores will be
sold to the new company at par. Most
of the bonds,, If not all, are held by the
American Tobacco -Company. The bonds
will be retired, the purchase price com'
Ids from subscriptions) to the new pre
ferred stock, which will be at par by
l stockholders of the old corporation to
the extent of one share of new preferred
to two of the old common held.

SEE THREAT FIR,
Allege Compincy to Nullify th:
Hepburn Act by House
MEASURES DESIGNED TO
BROADEN REVIEW POWERS
Commissioner Clements Says the
Honse Might as Well Abolish
An alleged conspiracy to nullify the
force of the Interstate Commerce law,
said to be fostered by the Lumber Trust
and other big combines that operate what
are known as tap line railroads, has
provoked dissension among the Demo
cratic leaders of the House. This so-
called conspiracy, according to officials
of the Interstate Commerce Commission,
finds expression In bills designed to
broaden the power of review by the
courts over orders Issued by the com
mission. It is the opinion of Judson C Clements.
a member of the commission, that If
any of these bills are enacted into law
that the commission might Just as well
be abolished. Mr. Clements takes the
position that If broad powers of review
are conferred on the court, there is no
use for an administrative body like the
The bills In controversy were Intro
duced In the House by Representatives
Iiorland of Missouri, Broussard of Louis
iana, and Saunders of Virginia, Demo
crats. They propose that, in errors of
law, aggrieved shippers may appeal to
the courts. This right Is now denied.
Officials of the commission Insist that if
any one of the pending measures is put
Into the form of a statute, the chaotic
conditions In Interstate commerce that
obtained prior to tbe passage of the
Hepburn bill in 1306 will be restored.
This will result, they Insist, in breaking
the force of the rate act. and end in
Controverwr tn House.
Controversy has broken out among the
House Democrats over the Borland.
Broussard, and Saunders bills. Repre
sentative Adamson. chairman of the
House Interstate Commerce Committee.
said yesterday that It any of the meas
ures were enacted Congress should com
plete the job by abolishing the Interstate
Commerce Commission. He gave It as
his opinion that the power of the courts
pa&stng on orders of the commis
sion should not be enlarged, and that
If this power was enlarged that it would
render Ineffective the system of regulat
ing Interstate commerce that had been
built up after years of legislation by
Congress and Interpretation of law by the
The trouble over this proposed legisla
tion has been accentuated by the action
of the House Judiciary Committee in re
porting the Borland bllL Members of
tho Interstate Commerce Committee
threaten to take the matter up on the
floor and to move that the Borland bill
b referred to the Interstate Commerce
The Borland bill provtdes that the
courts "shall have Jurisdiction over all
cases brought to correct any error of
law made by the Interstate Commerce
Commission in granting or refusing to
grant relief In any proceeding before
said commission." Officials of the com
mission contend that this proposed
amendment would result in Interminable
delay in the adjudication of rate cases,
and practically render abortive any at
tempt on the part of the commission to
correct abuses in Interstate commerce.
They declare that while the measure
appears to be framed In behalf of the
shlrper that It Is really designed to take
the teeth out of the rate act, and pri
marily to serve the Interests of big cor
porations that own railroads that con
nect with common carriers. In this con
nection they mention the Lumber Trust
as an Interested party.
To Safetrnnril All lntcrcntn.
In making his protests to the Interstate
Commerce Committee against the pending
bills, Mr. Clements stated that Congress
In enacting the Hepburn bill of JHW at
tempted to narrow the court review of the
commission orders in a manner ui
would safeguord the Interests of all par- I
ties. He pointed out that later, in 19!0, '
when Congress created the Commerce
Court, care nas taken that the power cf 1
review should not be enlarged. Mr. Clem- j
ents said. In part: "It has been the con
tention of the commission ever since the
Commerce Court waa created that that I
court was not gtven authority to review J
the decisions of the commission on mat- j
ters and conclusions of fact or of mixed j
law and fact In such a way that It should
vnhtitnte its indement for that of the
c mmlssion In regard to the amount of a j
rate or as to a discrimination, wnetner
due or undue."
Judge Clements argued that the Su
preme Court decisions limiting the power
of the lower courts to Jurisdiction in
commission cases over pure errors of law
had resulted in a uniform and workable
system of orders governing commerce be
tween the States. To grant the power of
broad review to the court, he contended,
would be to lodge In the court work of
administration that could only properly
be delegated by Congress to an adminis
trative body like the commission.
"If that principle Is right." he said,
"there would appear to be no reason why
the controversy should not go Into the
court In the first Instance and- not have
the delay Incident to tho trifling with It
by an intermediate tribunal such as the
commission. If the matter Is determinable
only by Judicial process It might as well
go to the court In the beginning."
In a letter addressed to Chairman
Adamson. of the Interstate Commerce
Committee, Attorney General W'lcker
sham expressed sympathy with the pur
pose of shippers who desire that the
law shall be amended so that shippers
may appeal to the courts from orders of
the commission. In another letter the
Attorney General gave nls approval to
a proposed amendment, authorizing the
commission, in advance of the issuance
of an order, to call on the court for an
opinion on a question of law. This lat
ter amendment will not be opposed by
the commission. But the Borland bill.
which provides for an appeal on an er
ror of law. is objectionable to the com
mission' officers for the reasons Riven
by Judge Clements. They contend that
the line between fact and law In many
cases Is so thinly marked that the pro
posed amendment would In effect give
the court Jurisdiction over fact as well
