James K. Keene Declines
to Makea Statement.
New- York, July 13. In spite of rumors
that further failures were likely to occur,
the stock market to-day showed a better
tone than had been anticipated
The opening 'was rather excited on heavy
dealing.--. with prices In most cases higher
than vesterday. The improvement did not
hold, however, and in a few minutes prices
were declining all around.
Tho first sensational breaks occurred in
Rubber Goodi Manufacturing shares, the
rommon bi caking 7 points on a first sale ot
2.0M share at 121. followed Immediately by
one of 3.000 shares at the same price. The
preferred opened at 60. a decline of 10
point since jesterday. This was ona of
the companies In which Talbot J. Tay
lor and James R. Kecne were heavily In
terested. The chief stock with which the Tavlor
interests were Identified was Southern Pa--ific
and this developed further weakness
to-day right at the start. After opening
tip v. It ran off sharply, affecting the rest
of the list, and causing reccs-sIonsot 1 to 3
points in many standard Issues
The particular weakness ot Heading at
tracted some attention. Mr. Keene had fre
quently done much In that stock.
Mexican Central Issues, with which the
Stow people were Identified, were steady
for the common, which opened ?i up, with
lies of 4.000 shares at 13, and the first-In
come bonds on 1 point up. The second In
comes were more than 2 points off, with
very heavy sales. These shares held fairly
well for a time, but later eased off some

LONDON DISPLAYS LITTLE
INTEREST IN DISTURBANCES.
liondon, July 33. Comparativ cly little in
terest is taken in financial circles here In
the liquidation In the New York market,
which, is believed likely to clear tho at
mosphere. The American holdings of the British peo
ple are Insignificant and, as a matter of
fact, there has been much selling recently
and profits were reaped from the falling
prices in New Tork.
A strong feeling prevails that the level
ot prices has been reached, which caused
this morning an advance in Americans and
n consequent better tone of tho market. At
the opening the general average price was
U above parity, with some trading on New
Tork orders. Isaac Seligman said:
"The market here has been regulated
by New Tork. As an indication of the im
portance ot tho New York market, a fact
may be cited which is strongly believed In
that nearly all the European financial
markets are regulated by the tone ot New

cial center of tho world. For all that. I

"The state of tho market there is simply
the natural result of the ovcrspecuUtlon
and the ovcrflnancing of the last three
years. It is very difficult to tay when the
bottom will be reached: but it it was known
exactly how many weak pools or cliques
still exist, it would be possible to prophesy
with more assurance.
"We will have a series of fluctuations

sound, but the market Is also suffering
from the losses in mining ventures, and
from the effect of tho three ears" African
war, from which It has not jet recuperated.

AT MERCY OF DARING MEN.
Some Employers Adopted Sxsleni
of Asking Walking Delegate
What He Wanted as Soon

New York. July 25 Deteimin-d to pti&li
tho men who. posing as labor leaders and
friends of the worklngman. are charged
with systematically extorting money from
employers, the victims have decided to ask
District Attorney Jerome to procure indict
ments at once in the most flagrant cases.
New evidences of extortion came to light
In the sensational trial of Lawrence Mur
phy, and Instances of marvelous audacity
In the demands made were admitted In the
testimony brought out In the course ot wit
nesses In the case, which Is to be resumed
Murphy is charged with having misappro

threats of ordering strikes, and that tho

This novel defense ot Murphj's threat to
expose the blackmailing methods of the
"Secret Committee" of the union, who are
said to be men who allied themselves with
the labor organization, have encouraged the
victims of the blackmail to place the mat
ter in the hands ot the District Attorney"
To what extent employers have been ter
rorized by extortion and the great fear they
have ot revealing tho history of their cases
was shown yesterday when a score ot build
ers and contractors were nsked to state
their own experiences. Among these were
some of the largest builders and several
who operate on a smaller scale, and 'all
known to have paid extortion money.
AFRAID TO TAIJC.
Not one of them would consent to ha.e
h's story told, impersonally or otherwise.
Some pleaded that no mention b" made of
the matter. A few denied positively that
they had ever paid a penny to prevent
strikes or as the result of threats The ma
jority admitted frankly that they had been
victims, but declared that their business
would be impaired If the facts were made
The head of one large building firm, with
offices In lower Broadway, aid:
"Certainly we have paid manv thousinds
of dollars to save trouble, but why. In the
name of common sense, should we now lo"e
what we have paid to save our business and
take chances on losing our business as well
by talking about the matter? It Is not a
matter of cowardice, nor a desire to shield
ourselves or defeat the ends of Justice, but
just a plain matter ot the preservation of
"It the public knew what every emplover
In this city knows, our position would be
plain. The men whose capital has carried
on the building Industry in New York have
been for several jcars at the mercy of
daring men who have shielded themselves
unusr the guise of the unions.
"We have done the best we could under
these circumstances. Now let us hope that
we are to be relieved from this condition.
"Mr. Jerome complains that he cannot
get men to come forward and testlfj. No
doubt that Is true, but Mr. Jerome doc- nut
understand how persistently we arc likely
to be pursued by strikes and other annoy
ances If we open our mouths If we can
be relieved from all this in the future v.e
are willing to let the past drop."
Even In one ot the strongc&t cases against
Samuel J. Parks, the District Attorney has
so far been unable to procure with certain
ty one witness whose evidenco forms an
Important link In the case. This wltncs is
at the head of one of the largest building
concerns in New York. There is another
reason, according to 3Ir. Jerome's belief,
why some employes ar reluctant to testify.
That reason, it is declared. Is that a few
employers and contractors have acted in
collusion with the unscrupulous men In the
unions for the purpose of getting the bet
ter of competition.
In this way strikes have been ordered,
materials have been bojeotted and. In some
instances, employers have formed secret or
ganizations for the purposo of working with
the unions and freezing out competitors.
Members of the Emplovers' Association yes
terday admitted that such conditions havo
existed and that Mr. Jerome would be able
to force out the facts if he goes after them.
In some Instances, most ingenious plots
have been conceived to obtain money from
the man whose capital Is Invested in a
building. The Whitehall building. In Bat
tery place, is an Illustration. When the
building was nearly completed, last April,
a superintendent emplojed by the Century
Realty Companj. who had the contract,
emplojed a union Journejman plumber,
who was not in the direct employ of the
master plumber who was doing the work.
The independent man a engaged for a
small job in an wkS-ency. Because of
this all the plu.x?ers went on strike. After
being out a week, a demand was made fo
the discharge of tho independent plumber
and for waiting time for all the men out.
The plumber was Immediately discharged,
but the builder refused to pay the waiting
time. Then all the men on the building
were ordered out. several hundred of them.
and the building could not be finished in
"ime for the tenants.
Afte.- several weeks of bargaining with
walking delegates, a compromise was of
fered on the condition thai the owners of
the building enter Into a contract binding
"heirs and assigns" never again to cmp.oj
In the building any plumber except through
a master plumbei. This the owners refused
to do, and then came another proposition.

"It was," said on officer of the com

marble basins in the building ot a certain
plumbing contractor at 170 each. This wo
finally agreed to, when we could have ob
tained the h.imc basins from other firms for

matcriil and other things, and the result
was that the tenants of the building are
still without wash basins.
BOUGHT OFF WALKING DELEGATE.
Another member of one of tho large build
ing concerns related this instance ot his
"A vear ago I was surprised one morning
when I visited one of our largest contracts
to find that 350 men had been called out on
the building. 1 made an Investigation and
found that a union paperhanger had drilled
a hole in an Iron window raing. and tho
walking delegate of the Inside Ironworkers
had i ome on the srrne and ordered the
strike. He slated that It was the work ot
the iron men to drill the hole.
"The men remained out several davs;
costing me considerable money on arcount
of tho dclav and I had to pay a handsome
v.aiting-time nasses-sment besides. For the
last three years particular!, our concern
has been kept busy meeting complaints of
this character. Sonin of them weroBO ab
surd that It became at times almost im
vosslble to keep one's temper, but. In or
der to keep our work going, we had to meet
them and pay the price each time.
"There art' builders In the city who have
made the practice of asking the walking
delegate the moment he appeared how
much he wanted, without wasting any time
in listening to sdiam grievance?, and then
making the boot terms possible
