New York's Next Mnyoralty
BY JOHN MAIITTIOL.
(Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.)
N10AV YORK, Aug. 22,-That whlch has
taken place In Wall Street may be consld
orod a llnanclal phenonionon. Some wrlt?
ers on ilnance, and somo ilnntiolors, have
I'l.deavored to ascrlbe to tho abrlnkage of
values all klnds of reasonsj they give all
but the correct one. Thoro ls notblng

and costly methods ptirslied by the so
_allcd.Cap.alns of Industry to give to tho
oiilput a markot value. Thls la what hap
poncd: ?''.,,- ?-':?
From 1890 lndustrlal prosporlty followed
ln tho Wake of agrlculturnl prosporlty, It
was ln that year nnd t.lio year following
the yleld ot American wheat was enor?
mous, and ln tho same years there was a
fallure of crops lu the Argentlnos and
South Russia. AVhoat by legltlmate de?
mand wont to one dollnr a bushel. Amerl
sari soaports wore lllled wlth vossels walt
Ing for enrgoo-. Tho world became the
farmers' markot. He pald off mortagages,
bought new machlnery, clothes, etc. Mll?
llons pourrd Into tho Unlted States. Se?

Irlos and rallroads became busy, labor was
employed, peoplo beenmo prosporous, lm
provemonts woro imi.de by corporatlons,
munlclpalltles, Stntes nnd Indlvlduals, the
cra of prosperity begun, lt flowed into
the future as a wave nnd stlll flows.^
Flnanclers endeavored to borrow from
the future. ln tho concontratlon pf indus
trlnl energy by the combliiatlon of klndred
corporatlons they held ln view tho accom
pllshment of economlc measures, safety
from cut-throat competltlon, and .perma
nencv of lndustrlal prollts or frelght tolls;
alRo.'antlclpatlon of future values as rep?
resented by Issues of stock. Actual or
present values of properlles whloh may
ho termed assots were covered by bonds
pnylng flve por cent; interest, whllo the
gootl-will Interests were represonted by
At thls point the Wall Street game-ot
mnnlpiilntlon beglns. The questlon that
confronted the flnanclers wns: How
shall those stocks be glven a value ln thc
open market V" or "At whnt prlce shall wo
let the genernl publlc buy these shares?'
Pln_s made nll along the llno includeed
n s'poctncular domonstrntlon on the Stock
Kxclumge. Stocks wero bought and sold
among the parties most lnterested. Banks
were lllduced to conslder thc stocks
worth what thoy would brlng on the floor
of tl.e exchange. They lonned on them.
Thls went on month ln and month out.
In tlio.*meantlmo brokers' cnmmlsslons
nnd banks' Interest charges swellcd the
experiso of lltlgatlon. Stocks were sold
for roal money. The demand from the
publlc was llght. More sales at low
flgures. Banks reduced tbe loan value
contractlng credlt nnd the manlpulators'
Stocks gravltated from an artlflclal
holght to less than thelr true values.
Durlng the post week tho publlc. whlch
was nngled for by tlie manlpulators al
rldlculous flgures, hns come Into the
mnrket and showed lts wllllngness to
buy securities nt reasonable prlces.
Mllllons of hnrd-enrned dollars now Ue
in savlngs banks nwaltlng investment,
but thelr prudont hold&vs flnd It dlfflcult
to seucre Informatlon nbout thc securi?
ties offered for sale on the Stock Ex

nlpulators wlll lenrn that the publlc
wants Informatlon beyond tho mere re?
ports ptihllshod of earnlngs. Corporatlon
book-keepcrs are too much llko slelght
of hand artlsts.
August Belmont & Company have ln
their banklng houso a clerk who has
Just flnlshed the flftloth year of hls ser?
vice wlth the flrm, nnd. whon he nnd hls
friends celebrated tho event In a subur
bnn vlllngp tho other ovenlng, Mr. Bel?
mont loft hls fnshlonable friends and was
ono of tlie old clerk's guests. Vory rlch
mon seklo.n do these thlngs nowadays. I
doubt If anothr bank clerk. like thls old
gcntleman, cnn be found In the clty. In
tho flrst placo, tho banks that aro older
than that of the Belmont house can be
counted on tho flngers of ono hand.
At tho Mnnhnttan Club, whlch ls tho
strongest Democratlo club In the State, I
was told thoro Is a good deal of talk about
Robert D. Foote, the bapker, at Morrls
town, N. J. For some tlme past Foote
hns hocn tho reeognlzed leacler of Morrls
county and hls Influence through hls Stato
hns been stendlly galnlng -ground. Ho sayB
that the Democrats of the State aro get?
tlng together nnd should organlze ln nn
tlclpatlon of the comlng pn.sld9n.tlal con?
test. llls activlty lead_s those who are
watchlng hlm to say that Foote enter

lt has been dlscovered that thc crodit
of tho undertaklng to morge the North
