TUTT'S Uvsr PILLS?
This and Labor Question the
KEENE POSITION WEAKENS
Actual Developments ln,Rallroad World
Have Been Insignificant, Though
There Have Been Some Very In?
teresting Rumors Afloat
NEW YORK, March 28.?The Chief dis?
turbing factors of the situation are the
unfavorable monetary and labor features,
which during the past wcok have become
more complicated, with the result that the
stock.market has Buffered a considerable
roaotlon, says the Financial Age.) This
was disappointing to speculators, who
had hoped, although tt must be admitted
with little reason, for a oontinuance of
th? elevation of price? that was notice?
able during the preceding Weok. In
money the most disquieting development
was the appearance of an apparently ur?
gent demand for currency from out-of
town points for the purpose of fortifying
reservo accounts in other cities. Inas?
much as the drain from the interior woe
understood to have been checked, with
tho expectation that tho return flow might
,set in at any time, this new development
dampened speculative ardor materially.
There are many Wall Street commenta?
tors who have expressed great surprise
that the market doos not reflect tho re?
centi "good" bank statement; they lay
particular .stress upon tho fact that the
surplus reserve has been Increased, but
neglect,to go into details ae to tho cause
thereof.' The Increase of surplus reserve
by the excessive, withdrawals of dopoo
Its, such as has occurred during the past
few weeks, cannot be construed In any
other than an unfavorable light What
makes this withdrawal the more signifi?
cant Is the fact that deposits grow this
year by ?90,000,000 in tho first seven weeks,
and fell In the following weeks by $63,000,
OOtf, of which the sub-treasury took nearly
half. Deposits are In the control of the
depositor, and he has been compelled to ?
reduce ' them In the most embarrassing
manner to the local Institutions.
DEMANDS OF LABOR.
The demands of labor are dally becom?
ing moro persistent, and much concern is
expressed regarding tho outcome of the
many threatened strikes on the various
railroads. , No sooner does ono corpora?
tion 'sc?ceed In pacifying its employes
than another system Is confronted with
-union demands, many of which are un?
just and some, Indeed, arbitrary. In the
face of these Incessant labor troubles In?
vestors may ?' well ask when an arrange?
ment can be effected between employers
and employes whereby peace may be as?
sured, If only for a stlplated tima ' The
findings of tho Atithraclto Strike Com?
mission havo unfortunately had the effect
of Inspiring labor agitators with a desire
to empulate tho example and obtain the
fame of the leader of the Pennsylvania
coal miners, who, If he has not achieved
an unqualified victory, has at least been
more successful than has the leader of
any other great strike during tho past
?half dozen years. The corporations are In
many- cases willing to treat with their
employes in regard to Increased wages and
similar demands, but they insist In their
refusal to recognize tho unions, knowing
that to do so would not only establish a
precedent Injurious to tholr Interests, but
would place them In a position where
they would bo constantly menaced and
dictated to by men whose chief Interest
In labor lies In their Individuai pockets
and In the notoriety which, thoy can
achieve at little cost to themselves, al?
though-at a great sacrifice on tho part
?of their followers;
The'. Soythern Paciflo .light continues to
attract considerable attention In financial
circles, although the Opinion Is dally be?
coming more prevalent that the ostensible
object of the pool, or rather of the pool
leader, will fall of accomplishment The
policy pursued by the Keene party Is re?
ceiving muoh censure from conservative
Interests, who are Inollned to the belief
that this polloy Is ? not approved by a
largo number of those who entered Into
a speculative contract with Mr. Keene,
but who would rather suffer a monetary
lose than antagonise-the controlling Inter?
ests In the Southern Pacific, and who
are opposed to a policy that Is a menace,
not only to the entire market, but to tho
railroad and financial community as well.
The Keene position was further weak?
ened by the interesting testimony brought
out at the Vroeland trial, in which Mr.
Amory, who made the charges of mis?
management against tilo Metropolitan
Railroad, testified that Mr. Keene supplied
the funds for the campaign. Coming out
at a time when Mr. Keene is endeavor?
ing to grasp control of a great railway
system from its conservative owners, this
admission of Mr.. Amory can have no
offeot other than to further alienato pub
Ilo' sentiment from tho Keene sido of the
controversy. So far as the charges
against the Metropolitan are concerned,
they are declared baseless, even by tho
expert aocountant employed by the Keone
Amory orowd. But stocks oro sensitive
to slander, no matter how unwarranted,
and the "minority shareholders," regard?
ing whose welfare there Is so much bo
llcltude at present, aro, as usual, title chief
Aotual .developments In tho railroad
world have been Insignificant during the
past week, although considerable Interest
centered in the reports of the acquisition
of the New York Central by the Penn?
sylvania interests. Both partios have de?
nied that there has been any change, of
control, and even If there Is any founda?
tion for these frequently reourrlng ru?
mors It would have little significance, as
It is well known that Pennsylvania and
New York Central have long been hand
and glove, and that the owners of these
two great systems have each acquired a
considerable block of stock In the other's
property. Should any change in control
occur, It would bo with the full consent
of the present dominant Interests In Cen?
tral, and in such an event the present
polloy of the road would undoubtedly bo
strictly adhered to.
The fall In sterling exchange is by no
means unexpected. In fact, a fall Is to
bo expected whenever a little unusual
strength appears, until such time as the
Panama purchase remittance Is arranged.
With a monthly excess of exports of $40,
000,000 to bo paid for, there can be no
difficulty in offsetting a singlo similar
amount, payable In the oontrary direction,
without disturbing any bullion,
