BECKER, HOWELL & CO. FAIL
LITTLE SURPRISE AT THE ANNOUNCE? MENT. the ?u?-? TBorm.B rnr-r*iTATEP bt thb SHARP BJi? i\ 771 k , (??"ON STOCK r.g THB SCO AR TRCfiT 00 MONDAT?LJ ABILI? TIES KST'.MATEP AT ?2M>,<1?. Little surpr!s?> was created when ihe an? nouncement wan made from the rostrum of the New-York Stork Exchange Immediately after the opening of business at lo o'clock ye?ter?1ay morning of the failure or Pecker. Howell A Co., stock broker? at No. 44 Broadway. There had been rumor? the preceding day that' the firm wmld probably have to no to the wall. These rumor? had been started by notices from Decker, Howell A Co. to other firme to close contracts which Decker. Howell A Co. had with them The rontiarts were to be closed "?or the account of Pecker. Howell A- Co.." which meanf that Deck? er. Howell ft Co. would rot receive or deliver the stacks called for In the contracts, but that any losses on the contract? were to be charged up to the firm. At one time Decka-r, Howell & Co. was num? bered among the leading stock house? In the Street. The firm failed just prior to the Baring p*nlc of 1?K?. and alth'.ugh it ?mm n-sum? d its preetlge we? gont. and its business dwindled, until for the iast two ..r three years it had practically no business. Having lost nearly all it? customers, the Arm recently un? dertook ?peculation <m its own account. It got short of th? market" and wit? caught in the recent rise In value?. The ?harp rise of six point? in the common stock of the American Sugar Refining Company 'Sugar Trust! en Monday precipitated the failure. It vas stated that the firm was short 8*000 shares of this stock, upon which a loss of fifteen points, or $190.000, was shown. There were all sorts of ridiculous report? in circulation about the cause, extent and effect of the failure. While no authoritative statement was to be obtained, it was not thought that the liabilities would exceed .VJ.V1.000. It wa? con? ceded that the assets would be found to be small There were no transactions "under the rule" on the "Exchange for the account of the firm: consequently the failure was without In? fluence on the stock market. So far as could be esrertalned. the loans secured by the firm from banks and other lenders of money were not above .?100.000, which is a small sum for a Wall Street house. MAKE-l'P OF THE FIRM The firm is composed of Joseph S. Pecker and William A. Williams. Mr. Decker is the memb? of the firm who belongs to the Stock Exchange. He joined the F.xchange on March <?. 1ST.". The firm hae been in exislence since October 'J<>. 1808. At the time of Its failure. November 11, Wn, the partners were Mr. Decker, Mr. Williams, George R. Howell and William Evans. Jr. Mr. Evans withdrew after this* failure, and Mr. How? ell died October 7. l^O-V The firm succeeded to the business of the old Wall Street house of Leonard. Sheldon & Co.. which was founded In 187?. The failure in 1890 was sensational in its char? acter. Whan the firm stopped It was doing an enormous business, %nd It was borrowing on collateral no less tluin $12.000.000. The failure was due to a heavy slump in the securities of the Northern Pacific Railroad. It was said that a capitalist prominent in the management ?if the Northern Pacific had s large account in Decker, Howell & Co.'? office. He was in Europe, and. failing to respond to a call for margins, the firm had nothing to do but to confess Its Inability to meet its obligations. William Nelson Cromwell, of th? law firm Of Sullivan & Cromwell, of No. 41 Wall-st., was , named as assigne?. Through his efforts, it was said, the Northern Pacific capitalist was in? duced to come to the aid of the firm, and on January V2, 1801, sixty-one day? after the fail? ure. Mr. Decker was reinstated t-> membership in the Stock Exchange and the firm resumed business, having paid 100 cents on th" dollar with Interest. Mr. Cromwell's fees, as allowed by statute, were something like $250,000. In addition, for his excellent work, the firm pre- ] ?ented to Mr. Cromwell a silver dinner service | worth S.WOOO. TO A?ANftON FISHER. JR When the Arm stopped yesterday it made an assignment to AJbbsob Fisher. Jr , without pref? erences. Mr. Fisher was cashier for the firm for many years About a year ago the Arm cut down expenses by giving up part of Its spa clous office and dispensing with most of its clerk?. Mr. Fisher left the firm at this time, but his departure was because of poor health. He might have retained his place. Mr. Fisher said it would bf a week or more before he could make any statement as lo liabilities and assets. There was a story that the failure was caused by the neglect or inability of John C. Eno to provide margin for storks which Decker, How? ell & Co. were carrying for him. Mr. Decker said Mr _no had not a speculative contract for a dollar with his firm. Mr. Eno simply had a de?ik in tbe firm's office, but was not concerned in or involved by the failure in any way. Mr. Decker said some of th?? firm's customers had not kep-f up their margins, but the failure was in reslity ?lue to the firm's own operations in stocks. The firm had. to he exact, exhausted its resources Not only had the office expenses beep heavy, but also the Individual expense? of the ni'-mbers of the firm. The firm had no branches in New-York or in other cities and ha?! no private wires. Roth Mr. Decker and Mr Willlama are pa.? the age of fifty Mr. Decker lives at the (Jar den City Hotel, (larden City, Long Island, and Mr. William? at Tarrytown. It is considered Improbable that they will resume business. Mr. Eno was at their office yr-sterday. ; It was re? ported that among the customers of Ii<,-ker. Howell ft (Jo were Thomas F Oakes, es-preel? dent of the Northern Pacific Railroad, and J. C. Delemar. owner of the famous Oelemar gold mines In Idaho. -4) A FT.VRRT IN SUGAR STOCK IT RE\?"*HES 1STV THE HIGHEST I Rl" 0\ nEC_ OltP EFTF..T OF tVTtOt L'HUTER'S DBCIBIOB Th?re was asa'.n great excitement in Sugar Btock OB th? Stock Exchange yesterday. The opening price was 188%, or 1V? below the clos? ing on Monday. There was a decline to 138%, aftr* which an advane? set in. and th? price was carried to 1o7T%. the highest price ever recorder! for the stock Then there was a de? cline to 13? at the clo?e The total deBllBS? for the day were more than 78,000 share?, or more than one-third of the transactions in all storks on the Stock Exchange list. There wa? a sharp gain in the stocks of the anthracite coal-carrying railroads on the de? cision h\ Judge Chester tha? the Attorney-tien orel could not compel them to furnish Informa? tion tn a pro.-epijing against them for a'|cc..d violation of the Anti-Trust law Delaware and Hudson advanier] 'J*,, IbBBSJIISllBBJIB and West em preferred '?;%. Neva-Jersey Central 1%, Rent? ing second preferred 1>4. Reading first pre? ferred D-?. Reading common 1% and Ontario and Western '?.. David Wlleox. counsel for the Delaware and Hudson Canal Company, ?aid of Judge Chester's decision: "The decision of Judge Chester. In tbe proceeding* instituted bf the Attorney-Gen? era! to examine the presidents of the coal com? panies, goes to the foundation (,f the system of procedure sought to be established by the Anti Trust act of 1S97. It holds that the act is un? constitutional because Its terms compel a wit? ness to testify to matter? subjecting him to lia? bility to criminal prosecution, without at the same time providing that the wliness shall not be pro-sectited regarding the matters as to which he testifl -s. No constitutional right Is more Im? portant than that of personal liberty Notwith? standing passing clamor, which has no basis of fact and no real support of public sentl n <-n?. that right ha? been once more ably vindi? cated In this learned and vigorous opinion of Ju'lii" Chester." BKUKVKH IT OOMUECT. Francis l.ynde Stetson said "I believe the decision Is entirely correct. The procedure un? der the so-called Anti-Trust law Is unconstitu? tional, and the act doe? not provide a constl U'lonal procedure. Th? decision Is technical. but It Is correct, es I regard It, u far u it I goe?. Beyond that I do not cere to say any ; thing at present." ? John II Dos Passos said: "The opinion of , Judge Chester has been anticipated by mem I ber? of the bar who have studied the question. All of the?e ?o-c?lled Anti-Trust law? ere. In , my opinion, unconstitutional, and will be so declared, one after the other, when presented to the regular judicial tribunals, if the courts should sustain the Anti-Trust laws, the effect would be to declare Illegal all the labor unions and ?Srgant?atlon? which have existed for years. and?hey would Inevitably be dissolved. The lawSof supply and demand I? the criterion by which to test these combinations. All the peo? ple have to do Is to await the Influence of thl? Inexorable law 'or their remedy, and whenever this law !? violated the combination 1? doomed. The history of commercial combinations shows that only about one out of every ten has been successful. One after the other they tumble to pieces without the Interference of the courts. In the course of a few years the laws against combinations will be regarded as dead letters, because they will prove inefficacious." The Improvement in the financial situation in the last two weeks has been amazing. Particu? larly Is this true of Wall Street. ' In two months the market value of the capital stocks of twenty railroads ha? Increased; In round numbers, sno, ? m m ?,? n m i. There has been a corresponding en? hancement In the stocks of some of the leading industrial companies. Especially noteworthy in? stances have been the advances in Standard Oil Trust certificates and the common stock of the American Sugar Refining Company, otherwise the Sugar Trust. Standard Oil certificates are not listed on the New-York Stock Exchange, but they are extensively dealt in by "outside brok? ers.'' A director of the Sugar Trust said: "Sugar stock might sell at 150. and even higher, simply on the ability of the company as a divi? dend-earner. No one in Congress or out of Con? gress will do anything to harm this great Ameri? can Industry, and It will be treated fairly to say the least. At present the sugar trade Is bright? ening under the general revival In business. Peo? ple have been expecting to buy sugar at a lower ' price, and have held off until their supplies are too low. They have now begun to buy, and this ts lowering the stocks of the refineries and hard? ening the sugar market. The Sugar Company is in an excellent position to meet any sudden activity in the trade, and Is at present doing a very large business." There has been a fifteen "?oint rise In Chicago r?as certificates, based chiefly on the measure passed at the last session of the Illinois Legis? lature permitting the consolidation of the several companies In the old Chicago Gas Trust Into one corporation. It ma> not be generally known that the Chicago Gas concern controls the acety? lene patents for the city of Chicago. Acetylene gas ts to be used to enrich the gas now fur? nished, and It is asserted that I? will give to Chi? cago the highest candle-power gas of any city In the Fnlon. roNSPicrorR for their activity. The stocks of the so-called Granger railroads, the great grain-carr> ing lines of the West, have been and are likely to continue to be conspicuous for tbelr activity and gain In value, by reason of the large export movement of grain, one of these stocks, howevet, has been nti exception. It is that of the Chice.?*? Greet Western Railroad. Within a few days this stock has eOBBB into prominence and ha? had a substantial rise, ac 1 companied by a report that the road was likely to be acquired by one of the large railroad sys , terns with which It connects. The stock of the road is largely owned in England. This road oc? cupies a unique position. It has no bonded debt whatever. Inder the reorganization there was an assessment of Sin a share on the common stock. The stock is still selling below that fig? ure, hut as the road has been put In excellent physical condition, earnings will not hereafter have to be devoted to that purpose, but instead will go to the stockholders. The Chicago Gieat Western Is sometimes called fie Stlckney road, after Its president. A. R. Stlckney. The earnings of the road the last three days of last week in creased $0,200 over the corresponding period in 1896. The feature of the bond market at the moment is the turning of commission-house buying into second-grade bonds. First-grade bonds are at such high prices as not to Invite new orders. One house the other day received an order to in? vest S'JlMi.iiOO in Ab'hison 4s. Northern raciflc 4s. Reading 4s. and Susqnehanna and Western | 5s. The Investor in question had not put any money in this claps of bonds for years. The low rates for money, for one thing, are raising the bids for bond?. There was a two-cent rise in wheat ye.Merday The visible supply of wheat is 80.00(1,000 bushels less than it was In this country a year ago. The amount afloat for Europe Is 14.0(10.000 bushels less. Stocks the world over are light. The win? ter wheat crop Is of excellent quality, and will meet a good demand when offered for sale. -o LEGA L INTELLIGENCE. GAVE ?2I..100 TO HER HCSHAND The eomp'.aim in the suit brought In the Supreme Court by Mrs. r?al.-?le Isabel Ros? to recover fron: her former husband. MlllHrd V. Pnlhemus. a sum of $20.1-?,, which she alleged ?he lent him to pn'rhaa? a seat on Die Stock Exchange In November. ISN, and \ also to set nside a general release for this sum, ex ! e<?iited by ber under seal to the defendant, was | yesterday di?mis?ed by Justi, e Smyth. Mrs. Ross Is the ?laughter of Joseph Thompson, n : builder and bank director, who died In IB?, Bf? ' married Polhetnu? in April, IBM, and they separated ' in May. IM, Mrs. Pnlhenn:? ? year later secured a decree of absolute divorce, and was permitted to re ' sume her maiden name. She married her present I husband, with whom she lives at the Hotel Majestic. In June, 1MB, Tne ?all was brought In the interim between the divorce and the second marriage The ! plaintiff all?ged that when she lent the mon?:" to i lier husband. uncording to the rules of the Stock Exchange she was compelled to exe^iiie a pa-noral release f?r any sums lent to the defendant before he ? could be admitted as a member. She gsserted, , however, that Polhemus had agreed to pay her the i amount loaned him. with Intereet. The defendant denied that the ?20.0HU was given to him as a loan ard said that It was a gift He ??so set up a? a defene? lo the claim the re!?-;?se ezeeutcd by the plaintiff. .1 istlea Smyth held that the BJ0.S" was a valid gift by Mrs. Polhemus to her husband; and tha* as no nllegrttlcn was made In the oomplaint that the re? lease given by her was obtain? d either by fraud or a? the result of a mutuel mistake, th? complaint in thai respeit was fatally defective. "I'pon a esreful examination and consideration of the evidence." the Justice says. "I am led to the conclusion that the money advanced by the plaintiff to her hu? hnnd was. in fact, a valid gift to enable him to be? come a member of the Stork Rxchangc and to <om plv with It? rul?p. and the money Wba accepted by him for that purpose only, and was applied to the purpose for which It wa? niv.-n and accepted, and was in no <s? n.-e n loen of money, that tli.-re aai neither fraud nor mlsrep-esentgtion practised or attempted 10 be practised by the defendant upon the plaintiff, nor was there any mlstnke on the part ,,f either of tbe parties ns to tetms and con? dition? ipon which the money was given " - - -? oil ut CALENDARS SOB ti? pat. \rpe ?f'*' IHvlelon Supreme <""urt h?,-?-??
