Hard Ccaleis Are Strong, but Na
tional Biicuit Continues
. to Drop.
PLANS $60,000,000 BOND ISSUE
Br BARROW SERVICE.
New Toric, July 56. There wai a gen
era! advance all alone 4he line at the
opening this morning, but by the middle
afternoon, the market had. turned dull
and eased oft In spots. The undertone
was 'excellent and there was not1 a posi
tive weakness in the active list. Oeneral
Electric declined, but it waa because of
realizing on the declaration of the 30
per cent stock dividend which had been
discounted for several weeks. The weak
ness in the issue did not hurt the gen
eral list. The hard coalers nere strong
at the opening, but eased off later. Na
tional Biscuit continued its downward
movement with Loose Wiles Biscuit
Ccmpany still climbing the other way.
Owners of 4j per cent debenture bonds
of the E. I. Du Pont de Nemours Powder
Company, the trust dissolved by the gov
ernment's order, may start a movement
to reopen the case, as they are dissatis
fied with the treatment accorded the
bondholders In the dissolution plan. The
splitting up of the properties into three
companies, they claim, reduces the equity
behind the bonds, the trust Indenture
covering them saying the company shall
have power to control its property at all
times lor sale or any use It sees fit. The
bonds outstanding total JH.M8.C0O.
Reading's net earnings available for
common stock dividends for the fiscal
year lust closed will be in excess of 1H4
per cent on the 570,000,000 common stock.
This Is about K of 1 per cent, below the
average of the past five years and over
l per cent. less than lsll net earnings.
Plans Stock line.
The balance sheet of the new United
Cigar Stores Company of America, taken
from th condition of all component parts
on June 1. show s total assets of J37,79S,ES,
of which about J12.Ou0.0fXI is quick assets
and the balance real estate and good
will. The outstanding capital stock Is
reckoned at 31,700.000 out of J33.O00.000
authorized, and immediate liabilities at
J3.600.000, leaving a balance of quick as
sets of about JS.JO0.000. The surplus ac
count totals iZSOT.So.
The General Electric Company's plan
to Issue $00,000,000 debenture bonds results
from the new policy of the directors to
increase ihe dividend rate and to use
these bonds Instead of earnings to pro
vide working capital.
Net tarnlngs of tr- Westlnghouee Air
Brake Company in 1912 are running at
the rate of 3) per cent on Ha JIS.600,000

the common stock, which will leave a
balance after the common dividends of
about $$.700,000 for depreciation charges
ard surplus. The road now has a surplus
account of over $200,000,000. which will
make a good "melon" for cutting some
day. It is equal to about Jo per cent on
the common stock.
The placing of many loans for fall
needs with the banks is at least a month
7-hcad of the usual demands for such
leans and may have the effect of keep
ing ratc3 from undue firmness later on.
Usjally in the late summer and early
fall there Is such a rush for money that

WEEKLY REVIEW OF TRADE
Volume of Business Up
New Tork, July K. Dun's review to
morrow will say:
'Statistics of trade movement tell of
rolume of business quite up to normal.
Bank clearings this week are slightly
reduced because of a loss at New York
City, but at other leading centers the
gain averages il per cent over a year
ago and 7J per cent over 1910. For July,
date, the Increase Is 3.5 per cent.
compared with both preceding years.
Railroad earnings for the first half
of the month exceed by 1.8 per cent the
earnings of the same roads a year ago.
Foreign trade maintains the high
movement of the fiscal year Just closed.
Latest returns at New Tork aggregate
for the week 3i,:50,333. against J31.C30.0CXJ
year aga and S3.CO0.CO0 In 1910. Ex
ports Increased largely, while Imports
were practically the same In value for
the three years. Betterment In growing
grain, which promises so much for fall
trade, naturally depressed prices In
wheat and com. A further reflex of the
excellent progress made by the crops Is
the tendency to provide more fully for
future needs at Northwestern trade cen
ters. That Industrial lines are well em
ployed Is Indicated by the advance In
products of Iron and steel and by the
better demand and higher prices this
week for copper. A moderate trade is
noted In cotton goods. Higher, prices
have been announced for some grades,
and the market throughout s very
strong. The' demand for woolens Is
about all that could be desired, and raw
wool Is readily taken at trie higher
prices asked. The shoe trade makes a
further gain thlrf"week, and New Eng
land and other manufacturers constantly
receive some additional order, but the
higher prices still tend to check busi
ness. Prices In leather and hides move
upward, and available suppl'es are ap
parently reduced. There is no Indica
tion of undue speculation In any direc
tion to threaten future stability, and the
firmer values In practically all depart
ments of trade are sustained by the con
stantly Increasing requirements of con

New York, July aLBradstreefs to
morrow will say:
"This week's reports furnish a erltable
budget of good news. Practically every
crop prespect pleases, current trade Is of
seasonable volume, bulng for fall and
beyond Is expanding, the Iron and steel
Industry Is oversold, labor Is scarce, the
railroads are preparing for a heavy traf
fic In the autumn, gross earnings are
Improving, Just now no one seems to be
much concerned about political matters
In fact most Interest Is displayed In the
returns llktly to be made by the soil-
ana although retail dealers have to cut
profits In order to move stocks, busi
ness lias been stimulated. But life crops
occupy the pre-eminent position. Esti
mates on the country's wheat yield are
being increased so that a crop of 700,
000.000 bushels Is now predicted, this
being the third largest ever reported. The
spring wheat crop as well as that of
oats will be of record proportion.
"Delivery of clothes and men's wear
are to far behind as to cause some
dealers a little anxiety.
"Lumber Is active, especially In the
Pacific northwest. Groceries are In good
demand. Hardware and builders' sup
plies are well and though sales of shoes
are held up to some extent by h'gh prices,
these will, no doubt, have to be paid, and
consumptive requirements are such ss to
necessitate expansion In this line. Leather
Is firm. Hogs are at the highest point
this year, .but produce Is plentiful and
cheap. Flour Is quiet because lower
prices are expected. Manufacturers of
Jewelry are now quiet, but deem future
prospects to be better than for some time
"Business failures for the week ending
July 3 were 552, against rS3 last week
and 211 in the like week of 1811."

Southern Commercial Congress
Starts Movement to Strengthen
A moiment with a .Iew to Increasing;
the trade and strcnBthentns the amica
Mo relations between the United States
and the other Pan-American republics
has Just been Inaugurated by the South
ern Commercial Congress. The project
The first aim will be to arouse the
Scuthern Central American republics to
greater Interest In tha last expansion
of American and South American trade
hlch Is bound to result from the open-
Inp of the Panama Canal In 1913. Efforts
HI also be made to diffuse Informa
tion among the American public with
respect to the steps alread- being taken
by the South and Central American re
publics to seize commercial advantages
resulting from the opening of the canal.
The second aim will be to furnish In
formation to American exporters to the
Pan-American republics with a view to
making them better able to compete
with the European merchants, who are
generally conceded to possess superior
methods In trading.
The third part of the movement Is to
divert to Institutions of learning In the
United States a large percentage of
these South and Central American stu
dents who annually attend the big unl
ersltles of Europe
The fourth phase of the nroiect Is to
urge the teaching of Spanish In the
public schools, colleges, and universi
ties of the country to a greater extent.
An effort will also be made to found
Pan-American ihalrs In the principal
American Institutions of learning.

THE COUPON AND
THE COST OF IIVING.
(Oonright, 1312. br C JI Hers. New Tork.)
The other day a stranger from a small
town In New Tork State visited a bank
ing house In New York with which he
had been doing business from time to
time for the past twenty years. The oc-
raslon for his visit was the desire to go
over the list of everything he owned in
an Investment way and ee whether It
was wise to make any chances This de
sire had been stirred up by the fact that
he had found his Income from Invest
ments not sufficient to meet his expenses
this year unless he cut down on some of
the necessities of life.
As he went over the list the banker
told him about his various securities He
came to an Item of Sl.rXX). New York
Central first mortgage V it cent bonds
due in 1997. which he had bought In 1899.
The banker said, reading from his list:
'They sold yesterday at STU "
The customer glanced .it his list and
"It cost mn 113. What Is the matter
with that bond 7"
The banker found himself In for a long
explanation. He showed how In 1SD9 tha
prices of all bonds were abnormally high
because the cost of living was low and.
therefore, the $35 of annual income which
the buver got from this particular bond
would buy a great deal of the necessities
of life. At the present time, on the con
trary, the cost of living is very high and
the purchasing power of this $35 Is very
much less. Therefore, of course, the
value of the bond Is very nii'cb less be- J
cause, after all. the price of bonds or of
any other form of Income producing prop-1
erty depends In the long run upon how i
mueh fonH or olnfbtnr- thm lnt,p.t nr '
dividend will buy
The customer Hitened patiently and
finally got to understand this simple fact.
He waa very much reassured to find that
there was nothing intrinsically wrong
with hi bond but that he was suffering
from a general malady rather than from
a particular complaint He was also in
teresfd to observe that the very thing
that had brought him into New York
to consult, namely, his Inability to make
his Income meet his expenses, wa also
at the bottom of the great decline In all
low interest-bearing bondi since 1S99.
"I never realized." he said, "that after
all a bond Is only a means of getting an
Inmm. anA thus It. -i1ha it.ti.n. ...
Its power to produce bread and butter!
for my family " j
Going on from this point he discovered'
to his amazement that his biggest losses'
on paper were In all the securities that
he had deemed the best 'In his UsL The
bonds that were relatively weaker seem
ed to have held up better than anv others
The banker -explained to him that this
was due to tne ract that in most cases
these secondary bonds represented nrnn-
erty that had Improved very greatly In
credit and that therefore had tended to
advamc or at any rate not to decline:
nereaa tne no nils that represented slmi-
ly a safe Income had declined with gen
eral conditions and the rising cost of liv
He fcund. In fact, that a bond buyer
to-day can buy to jleld 5 per cent or
more the same class of securities, so far
as Interest and principal are concerned.
that would only yield from -4 to 4s pert
cent in years gone ujv In other words,
he realized that there has been a tre
mendous economic change In the world
and that the science of Investment had
adapted Itself to that change. He de
cided that in order to adjust his own In
come to this change he "vould have to
sell a lot or securities that only yielded
him abcut 3.90 to 4.10 per cent and buy 5
per cent Issues.
He also asked his banker's opinion as
to whether or not prices vr-juld recover
In the course of time. The banker was
guarded In his opinion, but he did say
tnat in nis judgment the cost of living
must tucn downward during the next
year or so and that undoubtedly If It
does bonds bought at the present time
will turn out to be cheap. He was
strong, however. In his statement that
the tendency of the times Is toward a 5
per cent Income or better and that the
best bonds to buy at the present time
are bonds to yield about that rate.
