Clearing Out of Weak Accounts
Helps and Swift Billy Should
Soon Take Place.
HARVESTS FORTIFY THE U. S.
New York. .Oct. IX Security markets
in America, and Europe entered the new
week strengthened In technical position
by the clearing out of weak accounts.
Something of a short interest has been
created, and the tone should be reflected
In a swift rally on the slightest favorable
development. The harvests In Europe
have been bad, and following poor crops
the previous year nave naturally resulted
In war, for war always follows bad
crisps. There are a few exceptions to
this, of course, but thousands of years
of history prove that political agitation
is mild when crops are good, and. there
fore, conditions In the United States
should improve both socially as well as
financially the next few years.
The tremendous crop of this year is.
of course, of vital Importance to Wall
Street, but It is equally Important to
bear in mind the fact that soil condi
tions are such as to Justify the expecta
tion of equally large crops in .1313. This
fact has an Important bearing on Invest
ments. TJolted State Strongly ortted.
Much adoo has been made recently
over the selling of American stocks by
Europe. It is said as many as 300,000
shares have been sold In the past two
weeks. Even admitting that a big war
can take, place-In Europe, not more than
a million shares of stocks would be of
fered for sale, and that would mean
scarcely 0.030,008,000. It would take less
than 100,000,000 .bushels of corn to pay the
bill, and "the -corn crop in the united
States this year is S.090,000,000 bushels
. greater than Jt ..was last year, not to
count about 00,000,000 -bushels more of
oats. 100.000.COO more of.- potatoes and
a.000.000 tons more of. hay with other
crops with the.-same proportion. .About
all that Europe would . accomplish . by
selling a million shares of American
stocks would.be to check. the shipment
of gold from London to New Tork.v,The
position of the-United 'States-was never
so strong . financially ana j in a business
way atnee It-tiadiaa export business. It
la Just emerging,. from, years of panic.
There is. almost complete -absence of
speculation, not only In stocks, bat in
all lines of business. Savings are at
a high record and ownership of stocks
on margin is at a low record.
. About the only men of Importance who
fear for the future of the stock market
are those persons who occupy high posi
tions in the great corporations and who
are therefore bearing personally the
brunt of the wild attacks made on those
concerns. These attacks have natur
ally made them nervous and irrespon
sible and they have Innocently allowed
their personal physical condition to
prejudice them In regard to the financial
and business conditions In the country In
general. The dry goods Is right now at
its greatest record In America and so Is
steel business. Copper is In a healthy
condltion and labor Is well paid in com'
parlson with the profits that are being
reaped by employers. The high cost of
living is a scarecrow.

Many Flan to Attend Riven and
Harbors Congreu to Be
The coming National Convention of
the National Rivers and Harbors Con
gress, which will be held In this city,
December 4 to 6, gives promise of
bringing together the largest number of
delegates that ever attended a water
way congress. President Taft will open
the convention with a notable address
on the needs of waterway improvements
and will be followed by a number of
leading men of both the United States
It Is a1 subject for general "congratu
lation, according to former Congrei
man J. Adam Bede, that the several
water .and levee conventions held up to
the present time have' been more largely
attended than at. any time in the history
of the associations.
This view of Mr. Bede Is emphasized
by no less a person than President W.
W. Flnley. of the Southern Railway.
When asked yesterday about statements
made at-the recent levee convention, at
Memphis, Tenn., which reported the rail
roads of the South as opposing the. im
provement of inland, waterways and -the
maintenance of the levee- system. :Mr.
Flnley said: "So far as such statements
hare been 'applied to -the attitude of: the
Southern Railway Company, they were
based on a' misunderstanding of the
facts. As a representative of that com
pany, which operates in a. section of 'the
country In which the Importance of
waterways can be -Increased, and. deal
ing with r the subject as a practical and
not as a .theoretical matter.' I have' re

Orders Placed for Awards
In Herald's Big Contest
Advocate Announces that Prizes Are Arriving in City
Rapidly, and that Complete List Is to Be
Announced in Near Future.
tef.i. 'ff i-i;Biieisipii
Orders have been placed for all of the
0 awards to be awarded winners In The
Washington Herald's S5.000 contest.
Announcement to this effect was made
last night by The Advocate, the dapper
little gentleman In charge of the compe
tition. The selection of the articles waa
completed more than a week' ago, and
steps were taken immediately to order
Many of the articles already have
reached the city from the various fac
tories. The remaining 'ones are expected
to arrive this week. The Advocate has
devised a most unique means of display
ing these articles. He refuses to divulge
the details of his plan, but Intimates
that It Is unusual. From what can be
gathered by reporters, the plan consists
of displaying the 330 articles In a build-
Inr in the downtown section of the city.
This is merely a surmise, however, and
nothing definite can be stated.
List Carcfally Selected.
The Advocate spent a long time In se
lecting the awards, so that he might pick
out articles which would appeal to the
greatest number of contestants. A com
plete list, of the articles will be printed
as soon as all of them have arrived in
the city. The Advocate Is withholding
the list, for the reason that there Is
possibility that, some hitch in shipping
will be experienced and that .it will be
necessary to make slight changes in the
The leading articles will be a t5.000
house and lot In one of Washington's
residential sections, four &2S0 , touring
cars of the latest models, four tT30 Baby
Grand pianos, four 165 player pianos,
todfour WOO upright pianos.
The house and lost Is considered as a
grand award and will go to the .con
testant obtaining the greatest number of
votes, irrespective of the limitations of
contest districts. The remaining awards
are to be divided equally among the four
contest districts. This Is for the pur
pose of equalizing the distribution of the
valuable awards. There will be vir
tually four sets of awards, and the con
test, therefore. Is almost equivalent to
four separate competitions.
Same Awards for Each Dlstrlrt.
Contestants are eligible to receive only
those awards offered to their district.
Each district is to have a similar set of
awards, so there will be no discrimina
tion. The district limitations refer only
to the. distribution of awards, and In no
wise affect the obtaining of votes. Con
testants will be given votes at all estab
lishments advertised In connection with
the competition, irrespective of whether
or not the store is located in the con
Great Interest Is being displayed in the
contest. More than 300. retail merchants
and manufacturers are advertising In
connection with It. Others are realising
the advantages to be derived from Join
ing the race dally and are sending In
their advertisements. The number of
contestants also is Increasing. It is
never too late to enter, so far as The
Advocate la concerned. Contestants,
however, should enter early. Every day
of delay means a serious handicap.
The competition la open to all readers
of The Washington Herald residing or
working in the District. The contest Is
the embodiment of simplicity, ana any
one with determination can win. Suc
cess Is dependent upon lndustriousness
and alertness. Those contestants who
apply themselves to the business of get
ting votes will be among the winners
at the finish of the six-months' race next

visitor wrote of her
