New York, September 3.?Stocks had
to contend this weok wlth the worst !

Thoae figures persuaded the general
public that the day of dlvidend re
ductlonu ls not far away, unloss a ma?
terial lncrease on frolght rates Is
granted by the Interstate Commerce
Commlsslon, whlch began. Its hearlngs
early in tho week.
The first stirprlscs furnlshed was
?vhen Presldent Rlplc-y, of the Atchlson,
expreaaed tho oplnlon under oath that
his systom would not earn moro than
tho bare 6 pe.* cent requlred for di
vldends ln the present flscal year un
Iosb permlttcd to lncrease rates. Such
?nrnlngs, of course, would forco a
reductlon of tho dlvidend. The street
Jiaa been under the lmpresslon that
Atchlson waa earnlng nearly 18 per
cent., but Mr. Ripley awore that lt
<-arned only 8.18 por cent. In tho last
llacal year. lt la hard to reconcilo
tbeHe statementa wlth tho offlclai re?
ports of tho company.
Denver and Rlo Grande furnlshed an
othor shock when the offlclai admls
elon waa made ln Its annual report that
thi lurgo earnings wlth whlch Wall
Street has been dollghted from month
to month. wore derlved very largely
from thc unearned Interest on the sec?
ond mortgage bonds of the Western
Paclflc, -ione of whlch can be cashed
iintll the road ls finished and earn?
lng the money.
The unlversal protest that aroso
agalnst auch a system of decoptlon.
crew from Prealdent Jeffrey an anology
ln whlch he attempted to place the
blame on ccrtlfied accountants. He ad
mltted that he knew the lncorrectnesa
of the monthly reports all along. and
proteated agalnst lt prlvately, but he
does not cxplain why he permltted tho
public to be mlsled for twelve months.
Kubtractlng the $1,100,000 from tlio net
earnings from thls source, the Denver
earned barely enough to pay Its nre
ferred dlvidend. and all hope of a dlvi?
dend on the common stock has gone.
The report of the Republic Iron and
Steel Crtmpany was of a dlfferent char
acter, and the street was pleasantly
fcurprlsed with the figures ahowing
that tho company ls earnlnu more than
4 5-4 per cent. on the common stock.
Tho company reports Its outlook good.
The Western Unlon was another com?
pany that Increased in public estlma
tlon as the report of large earnings
from the New York telegraph business
Tho stock of the Western Unlon and
the American Telegraph and Telephone
Company are looked upon with favor
by inve*jtmont bankers.
Intercontlnental Rubber was taken ln
hand by strong interests durlng the
week, after they had discovered a gen
ulne lnyeatment demand for the stock
by the public. Thls is the company so
widely advortlsed by Senator Brlstow
in hls chargea agaln Senator Aldrlch.
Tho stock Is now earnlng the eiiuiva
lent of at least 30 per cent. of Its mar?
ket value. No dlvldends are promised
on the common, however. as the pre
ferred ls all to be retlred before such
payments are made.
Kxports of copper were on a much
larger scale durlng the week. but the
Btock failed to proflt from thla. Tho
coppers are sufferlng from the artlfi
clal market posltlon of Amalgamatod
Cotton moved lnto tho foreground
wlth a prlce of 20 cents a pound for
August delivery. The government re?
port, Issued yesterday, showed the crop
had dcterlorated materlally slnce the
provious month. Cotton seems. there?
fore, in a strong posltlon commerclally.
Thls ls proved by the fact that foreign
Bplnnors aro orderlng Amorlcan cotton
regardless of prlce. Experts llguro that
owing to technical conditions in the op?
tion market, there will be a pressure
pf 2,000,000 bales moro of cotton than
last year on the September and Oc?
tober markets. These experts overlook
thc fact that there is an actual short
age among splnners of more than 2,
000.000 bales. so that conditions are not
materlally dlfferent from what they
were a year ago.
The rush of cotton to market at
Buch high prices ls creatlng storling
exchange rapidly. Expectatlon Is that
the Bank of England would lncrease
its discount rate, but money is so
cheap ln London that no action has
boen taken. Refusal of the public to
buy stocks ls making call money very
cboap in Now York, and many of tho
leadlng brokers are compolled to buy
commercial paper or borrow stocks to
keep their ldle mon?- employed, even
at the low rato provalllng.
