Local Financial Matters
By I. A. l-LKMIXG.
From the start to the close ot the
stock market there was neither life nor
activity. It as one of the dull days
with the losses more numerous than the
sains, but -without material change in
The losses for the day mere distrib
uted between Industrials and rails and
there were few Important price chances
In either other than In American To
bacco, which stood out In front of the
list with a 2 7-8 net advance. In a mar
ket where the price changes were gen
erally on the fractional order.
The opening was dull with banks dis
criminating against industrials. The
Balkan situation caused a less hopeful
tenor, which changed to a more en'
couraglng condition when the report of
an armistice was made public
Here and there throughout the market
readjustment must go on. Weak spots
exert an Influence on the standards.
Stocks without support must be liqui
dated to care for stocks that have. This
process of readjustment will keep on
until the Balkan and tariff probabilities
cease to be influential factors of an after
Certain Industrials Mere reported as
liquidated by "request." Looking through
the day's recessions, would suggest Re
public Steelj and Iron, Central Leather,
Great Northern Ore. Distillers and Air
Brake as likely to have figured In this
Roger W. Babson. the New England
statistician, says in his latest analysis:
"A general reduction In the tariff would
hurt several of our well-known corpora
tions. Morcovqr they have reached the
conclusion that there Is only one boIu
empty dinner palls, ic. Therefore, In
stead of using further money, time and
energy endeavoring to fight legislatures
and laws, they have concluded to use
this money and energy in making an
optimistic press In booming their stocks
and selling them out. This they are
now doing "
This mornine William B Hlbbs will be
operated on for appendicitis. Mr. Hlbbs
has spent the creator part of the last
two weeks endeavorlnc to assuage pain
from the trouble Yesterday, being In
cood rjhvslcal condition, he determined to
Insure the future b taklnr a needed rejt
and eliminating the cause of the trouble
His host of friends wish hirq the best
results and sneedv return to the actlvi
ties of the street.
More than half of the banks of the
ccuntrv do a commercial business. The
feeurltv more freauentlv than otherwise,
1.- the nromlssorv note of the borrower,
The man seekine a mortgage loan usu
alv warts about CO per cent of the value
of the property and willingly offers as
securltv the entire nropertj, which is
accented after a week or ten davs de
oted to investigation ot title, valuation.
A.c Moreover, charges are made for
lawjers' investigations, for the papers,
&c . which the borrower nays. When
uavment is due. foreicosure follows de
fault. On the other hand the business man
wtli cred t ma so to his bank, make his
aoollcation for accommodation, furnish
a nlain statement for the ourpose of ob
taining credit, and if of good reputation
the mone is forthcoming in short order
without extra costs, and without delav.
This is the difference between the col
lateral and the commercial loan Both
have their field The former makes few
losses The latter makes some losses,
but they are but a small percentage of
the grand total-of earl loans
The profit on loans is about one-half
of 1 per cent according to such an
em nent authoritv as David Forgan. of
t hlcago Most of the loans on which
losses are sustained, on the same au
thority are due Jo incorrect statements
iiucr innocenuj or wicKeaiy znaae uy
Any broker can tell a good statement
from a bad one, but the rub comes in
the truth of the showing
"In manv cases In bankruptcy, state
ments submitted for the t-ecuring of
crtdlt arc shown to be wrong, so far
wrong that they must have been made
for the express purpose of deceiving
bankers. This does not prove
that statements are untrue as a, general
proposition. So long1 as a business Is
prosperous, there Is little need for
statement, especially- for Incorrect state
"Between moral cowardice and self
deception, the banker Is Induced to make
loans that he would not have sanctioned
baa be known the facts.
"In order to protect the depositor, the
examiner inspects the bank, reports to
the Comptroller, or to the State, and the
examination is at the expense of the
"Why should not the expert account
ant examine the assets of a seeker of
credit In order that he may protect the
banker from false statements and at the
expense of the applicant for credit."
Mr. Forgan's ideas are good, and, if
adopted, woulj further hedge about tho
banking business safeguards that would
check loss. .

With the announcement that legal
measures are about to be taken acalnst
the Washington Utilities Company, that
tno commissioners have under considera
tion, papers in a suit. It would seem to
be about time the Washington Utilities
Company broke silence and officially an
nounced to Washington Just what Its
plans and purposes are
According to the best possible informa
tion there Is no Idea of taking over and
putting out of business any of the util
ities of Washington Whatever stocks
tf other corporations now- repose in the
treasure of the Washington Utilities
Company were acquired in the open
market or by private barter and ex
change. The statement has been made scores of
times that no merger was contemplated
with any local corporation.
It is time enough to meet action when
action reaches the courts

serted openly time and again that no
merger of any utility company with
the Washington Utilities was considered

Attorneys representing the United
Stales Steel Corporation in the bearing
of testimony yesterday before a court
examiner here in the suit brought by the
Department of Justice for the dissolu
tion of the corporation under the Sher
man anti-trust act charged that Assist
ant Commissioner Francis Walker, of
the Bureau of Corporations, had been di
rected by both Attorney General Wlck
ersham and Secretary of Commerce and
Labor Nagel to appear and so present
statistics gathered by the bureau that
they bolstered up the government's con
tention that the United States Steel Cor
poration was a trust In violation of law.
It. V I.lndabury. of Newark. N. J., and
C. A. Severance, of St Paul, were the
attorneys who made the charges, and
the- were angrily denied by Jacob M
Dickinson, special attorney representing
the Department of Justice in the prose
cution ot the corporation
Mr. Dickinson as the result of the ac
tion of the attorneys representing the
Steel Corporation declared that he would
report to the United States Court at
Philadelphia to-day havjng jurisdiction
of the sull that the two attorneys named
and other representatives of the Steel
Corporation present at the hearing had
attempted to Intimidate and embarrass
Mr Walker wnlle he was testifjing by
surrounding him at the place where he
was silting and derl-lvely laughing and
commenting upon the exhibits which
Mr Walker brought from the Bureau of
Corporations and which were sought to
he Introduced In the records These ex
hibits were tables and statistical matter
covering the prices of Iron and steel
products slnca 1S9.". about five j-ears be
fore the organization of the United
Mates hteel Corporation and compared
with the prices since its organization,
tending to show that as the result of the
organization of the corporation prices
became fixed and higher particularly on
Mr Llndaburv and Judge Dickinson
finally locked horns so hard over
Mr. Walker's exhibits that they came
deadlock which was broken by
air. Llndaburv- announcing with consld
erable beat that he and his associates
ould not consent to allow- Mr. Walker
to continue with his ' argument" as des
Ignated by Mr Undabury until the
United States Court at Philadelphia
ruled upon its admissibility, and
asked special examiner John A Brown
to peremptorilv discontinue the hearing
in order to allow all parties to go to
Philadelphia and his the matter before
the court. Special Hxamlner Brown de
clined to do so and stated that he would
continue the hearing and allow the mat
ter to be presented to the court at Phil
IVnnta -testimony Barred.
Then Mr Undaburv announced that
this morning at 10 o clock he would ap
pear before the United States Court in
Phlladelhpla with a transcript of the
testimony, that is, Mr Walker's, expla
nation of his tables, and ask that the
most of It be stricken from the record
The stand assumed by the corporation s
attornejs to-da) is looked upon as being
decidedly significant here, as it may have
far-reaching effect upon the publicity
work of the Bureau of Corporations, for
if It is sustained by the court It may
confine the bureau to the mere publi
cation of statistical matter which it
gathers and prevent it from summariz
ing or commenting on the statistics n
any way From the time Mr Walker
took the stand until he was excused to
await the action of the court at Phil
adelphia both Messrs Undabury and
Severance and D V Reed a Pittsburg
attorney of the corporation, made stren
uous objection to ever thing which Mr
Walker said outside of the mere read
ing of the statistics, claiming that his
remarks were argumentative and out-j
side ot his sphere a a witne-s placlns
in the record statistical mttter
The governments attornevs and tlioe
representing the Steel Corporation will.
