The current Issue of the weekly circu
lar of the National City Bank of New
Tork has the following to say of the es
tablishment and usefulness of the Bureau
of Engraving and Printing:
"The Bureau of Engraving and Print
ing is the largest institution of its kind
in the world. It employs at this time
about 1.900 men and about IJ0O women.
One and a quarter million bills. United
States notes, gold and silver certificates,
and national bank notes, are printed each
day. These have a value of SS.000.COO.
weigh tno tons, and. If laid flat, would
completely cover five acres. If placed
end to end. they would extend 140 miles.
In addition to printing the vast volume
of paper money Issued by the govern
ment, the bureau each day manufactures
34,000,000 postage stamps, which would
coer approximately six acres, or make
a chain of stamps K7 miles long. The
value of each day's output of stamps Is
UOO.OOO, and 000 employes are engaged In
their manufacture. Fifty-one different
kinds of postage stamps in denomina
tions from'l cent to IS are made for the
United States and Its insular possessions,
and they are printed In fifteen distinctive
colors. Another Important part of the
bureau's work is the printing of internal
revenue stamps through which an an
nual Income of X3O0.O0O.O0O Is collected.
The Internal revenue stamps printed
each day would cover eleven acres If
spread out in single sheets.
"Prior to 1851, government obligations 1
had been engraved and printed by
private concerns. The first paper money
ever printed and Issued by the Govern
ment of the United States was author
ized by the Acts of July 17 and August
f. 1SS1. The notes Issued were "demand
notes." The amount authorized by these
acta was JSO.000,000. For many years
prior to 1861 the paper money In circu
lation was Issued by banks under state
authorization. The emission of bills by
the colonies and by banks was not re
garded with favor by the mother coun
try, and the Provincial Governors were
generally opposed to these issues. Vari
ous acts were passed restricting their
use but with little result. Parliament, In
17S1. abolished legal tender money In the
Colonies and In 1783 declared any Issue
void. The Revolutionary War brought
about a change and the second Contin
ental Congress, In order to raise much'
needed funds and lacking the power of
taxation, turned for relief to Issuing
paper money. In May, 1775. the first
Continental notes appeared, 13,000.000
being first authorized and they were Is
sued from time to time until January,
17T, when their Issue was discontinued
as they were then passing at the rate
of 140 of paper to Jl of silver. The
Continental currency continued to de
preciate until 1781. when 81,000 in paper
money was only equal to a Spanish sil
ver dollsr, and thereafter It went en-
tlrely out of use. About 8213,000,000 were
'"During the Revolutionary war paper
money, distinct from the Continental
currency, also was Issued by several of
the States and it has been estimated that
more than 830,000,000 was so issued, the
greater part of which also became
worthless. In 1781, on the recommenda
of Congress, the Assembly of Pennsyl
vania repealed all legal tender acta and
this example was followed by all, of the
other States. (Thereafter no State was
permitted to coin money, emit bills of
' credit, or malse anything but gold and
sliver a tender .In. payment of debt. Simi
lar Inhibitions were Incorporated In the
Constitution of the United States in 1787.
"Wnllejiotes of different forma were Is
sued by the government at various -dates
some of which were receivable for gov
ernment dues, yet no circulating notes
were authorized to be Issued which were

To start at the bottom, local Uses of
a nu-and-misa sort are very often taken
out or telephone directories and .city
oirwcionss. inese lists are complied at
practically no expense and are the cheap.
est kind of lists that come Into the
market, for there la a rearular market at
au times as tne names of alleged inves
tors, with dealtra,4rokers. salesmen, and
all the paraphernalia of a regular mar
ket. Lists of this sort are usually sold
for Investment purposes only to people
woo are trying to sen securities locally,
and one could probably count on his fin
gers the number of cases In which lists
of this sort have been used nationally.
Another rather low-grade list Is com
plied from newspaper records. In a hap
hazard way and from business direc
tories.. Any one may buy a list of the
leading citizens, that Is, the best known
citizens in any particular section of the
country. Like the telephone list It haa
no special bearing on the Investment
proposition and Is quoted at a low rate
try tne thousand.
In the real Investment Held, lists are
divided in two ways, first, by the char
acter of Investments already made by
the people named, and second, according
so mo weaun oi mose wnose names are
used. Tou may buy for instance, a list
oi people who have been Investors In

WEEKLY REVIEW OF TRADE
Imminence of Election Has Little Effect on Trade
Movements Balkan Situation Proves Small

copper stocks. In gold mines. In manu
facturing plants. In railroad stocks, and
even occasionally in bonds. These lists
are usually compiled by getting bold of
lists of stockholders of various com
panlea. Under the Massachusetts law.
for Instance. It Is a very easy matter to
get a list of the stockholders of the
American Telephone & Telegraph Com
pany. and this list has been copied over
and over again and sold to hundreds of
different kinds of enterprise.
Last year, a promoter engaged In
floating the stock of a company that In
tended to manufacture a household
motor that would do everything from
running a vacuum cleaner to rocking
the cradle figured out that the best
kind of a list for him would be a list
of the stockholders of the leadlnsr bak
ing powder company In the country and
the leading aewlng machine company,
partly because he knew that these are
siocks tnat are held largely byiwomen
and have a natural attraction for
women, and partly because he expected
that people who had been successful
with these companies' stocks would try
to duplicate their success with .nnih.r
household article. He found no trouble
at all In getting the list of stockholders
or ooth of these companies. He found
also, however, unluckily for him. that the
lists were used so promiscuously and so
frequently that the people would not
respond very warmly to his Investment.
His company, as a matter of fact, never
got beyond the promotion stage.
When you get beyond these lists of
people wno already own stocks and
bonds, and the 1'sts of people classified
according to the amount at which they
are assessed for taxes, jou come Into a
miscellaneous field where exact divisions
prevail. For instance an agency In
New York has sold at a stated price
per month an exact record of all the
estates probated In that region with the
namea of legatees and the amounts they
are to receive. These names are taken
from court records. Similar lists on a
entailer scale are compiled In Boston,
Philadelphia, and Indeed In almost all
the large cities.
Good prizes prevail in this marlr.e tnr
