TRADE AXIf FINANCE ABROAD
"The South American Journal," of London, states
that the acting British consul at Buenos Ayres. in
a recent report, says that the Hamburg South
American Company has obtained from the Argen
tine Government a concession to establish a line of
steamers for the trade between Buenos Ayres and
the southern ports of the republic. This line will
run In connection with the line of that company
already established between Buenos Ayres and
European ports, and the first steamers will start
a bi-monthly service. No subsidy is asked from
the government, on'.y the guarantee that no other
line shall put on opposition boats. This means that
part of the continent will be closed to American
shipping and trade at a time when the United
States is waking up to the possibilities of drlvinsr
a larger commerce with South America. The new
maritime service between the Straits of Magellan
and Buenos Ayres will in time become important,
says the British consular agent in his report. It will
open up to German capital and industry a coun
try rich in arable and pastoral resources, but as
yet held back from great development for the want
of adequate means of transportation. A new Una
of steamers has also been started to trade between
Barcelona. Spain, and Buenos Ayres.
One more instance for the necessity for Ameri
can shippers and merchants to hurry if they want
to increase their business with the Southern At
lantic coast of the continent is found in an item
published In the newspapers of Montevideo. The
lirat transatlantic steamer flying the blue and
white flag of Uruguay was expected to arrive in
that port in the middle of July. This is the Otoyo.
of 2,600 tons net register, from Bilbao, Spain. She
bad a cargo of 4,500 tons of salt from Cadiz, and
¦was already chartered to take grain from San
Lorenzo, Argentina.
As an offset to the above mentioned cases of Eu
ropnan and native mercantile activity in South
America. It Is proper to note that the United States
li more favored in that field in countries like Peru.
Bolivia and Ecuador. The latest instance of this
comes from Paraguay, which is now purchasing
hi ISM United States all the electrical and telegraph
material needed in the "Switzerland of America."
In a communication referring to that subject. Seftor
Greporio Benitez, Director of Posts and Telegraphs
in Paraguay, said: "Some German firms and manu
facturers have offered to furnish the material, but
current of sympathy which exists In Paraguay
toward the United States has made the govern
ment of the republic resolve to employ by pref
erence material from the United States, to serve
as factors of our material and Intellectual prog-
The report of Befior Bolllvian, the well known

is highly encouraging to American exporters. It
shows that the British trade with Bolivia occu
pies a subordinate position as compared with either
the United States. Germany or France. The im
ports for the half year to the district of La Paz
amounted to $353,410 for German articles, $206,061

CHANGES IX RUBBER COS.
CL R. FLINT RESIGNS HIS OFFICE IN THE
UNITED STATES CONCERN TO IDEN
TIFY HIMSELF WITH MANU
FACTURING CORPORATION.
James B. Ford, first vice-president, and Chaxles
R. Flint, treasurer, of the United States Rubber
Company, have resigned. Mr. Flint, who is chair
man of the executive committee and the largest
shareholder of the Rubber Goods Manufacturing
Company, will now take a more active part In the
management of the latter concern. He will con
tinue as a director of the United States Rubber
Company. There is no conflict of Interest between
the two corporations. The Rubber Goods Manu
facturing Company makes no rubber boots or rub
ber shoes, the principal product of the United States
Rubber Company. The latter company Is a share
holder In the Rubber Goods Manufacturing Com-
pany.
Costello C. Converse, of Boston, has been elected
first vice-president of the United States Rubber
Company, and James B. Ford will succeed Mr.
Film as treasurer. Mr. Converse was vice-presi
dent and one of the largest stockholders of the
Boston Rubber Company, of which Lester Leland,
the second vice-president of the United States Rub
ber Company, is general manager. The Boston
Rubber Company, under the Conwrse-Leland man
agement, has been successful. Mr. Ford has been
a director of the United States Rubber Company
since it? incorporation; his company, the Meyer
Rubber Company, of New-Brunswick, entering the
United States Rubber Company upon its organiza
tion in 1892. He is at present the largest individual
stockholder of the United States Rubber Company.
Mr. Flint said yesterday at his office in the Broad-
Exchange Building:
For some time 1 have had only a nominal in
terest in the United States Rubber Company, in
view of my large interest in the Rubber uoods
Manufacturing Company and the increasing de
mands on my time. I have thought it better to
make way for some one who had a large stock in
terest, and who. from the point of view of policy
and time, could give closer attention to the affairs
of the I'nited States company.
When asked if a plan were under way to effect
consolidation of all the crude rubber and rubber
maufacturing concerns of the country, Mr. Flint
hinted that such was the case. He said:
Twenty years" expfrienc? in industrial consolida
tion has convinced m* that a neutral party is
n etssary to a successful consolidation. In the con
sol datiohs with which I have ! <-. n identified, such .is
the American Chicle Company, the American Cara
mel Company, the United Btates Bobbin an,i Shut
tie Company, the National Starch Company and
others. 1 had no connection with either of the
companies prior to the negotiations for consolida
tion. I consider that the United Sfntes Steel Cor
poration typifies the acme of scientific business,
and I have no doubt that what has taken place in
the steel industry will eventually come to pass in
the rubber industry.
The earnings of the Rubber Goods Manufacturing
Company for the six months ending June 30. 1901,
were $1,209,563 99, or at the rate of 7 per cent p^r
annum on the preferred stock, and more than 11
per cent on the common stock. After deducting the
two quarterly dividends on the preferred stock of
II s * per cent, of March and June, and the two
quarterly dividends on thf common stock of 1 p< ¦:•
cent, of April 16 and July lfi. together with the
sum of $120,000 paid to the' American Bicycle Com
pany, In consideration of the cancellation of guar
antees given tn that company, there remained a
Furplus of $485,930 99. which is at the rate of more
than 5 per cent per annum on the common stock.
It was rumored that the October dividend on the
common stock would be Increased at the rate of at
least 6 per cent per annum, but Mr. Flint refuted
the story. He said that the directors depmed it
a more conservative policy to accumulate s sur
plus rather than Increase the dividend? on the
common stock.
SANTOS DT~ MONT'S BATJjOOX.
AEROXAIJT OONTTDENT OF WINNING THE
PRIZE.
Paris, July Keen interest is still taken in the
balloon of the Brazilian aeronaut. M. Santos Du
mont. Each day he visits the grounds of the Aero
Club, the Pare d' Aerostation, at St. Cloud, where
the balloon is kept filled in readiness to seize the
first opportunity to renew the attempt for the
Deutsch prize of 100. <W francs offered for a dirigible
balloon.
Th© motor is working satisfactorily and producing
a higher speed than at the last trial, but wind
and rain have thus far prevented a thorough test.
Major Renard. director 'of the military balloon
station at Meudon, in the course of an interview
published to-day, asserts that M. Santos Dumont
will have accomplished nothing until he exceeds
the speed of six metres a second attained by the
balloon La France, propelled by dynamos, in ISS4.
He pays a tribute to the pluck of the Brazilian
aeronaut, and admits that the first use of a pe
troleum motor is due to his ingenuity.
To this M. Santos Dumont replies that he has
not only surpassed the speed of La France, but
has achieved over a distance of 326 metres a speed
officially verified as exceeding ten metres a second.
He says he regards speed as a secondary consid
eration, which can be developed after definitely
demonstrating the success of his balloon.
So confident is M. Santos Dumont of winning the
prize that he offers, with the accumulated Interest
thereon, another prize of 4,000 francs to the first
member of the Aero Club performing the round
trip from St. Cloud to the Eiffel Tower prior to Oc
tober 31.
MEDICAL BLACKMAILERS.
STEPS TAKEV BT THE OOUNTT MEDICAL AS
SOCIATION FOR DEFENCE.
St*>ps w*re taken some months ago by the- County-
Medical Association looking to the organization of
a defence union against blackmailers who seek
their victims In the medical profession. James Tay
lor Lewis, counsel for the New-York State Medi
cal Association, has written a letter to the editor
of "The New-York State Journal of Medicine,"
whioh is the official organ of the association, in re
gard to the subject. In his letter, which was print
ed in the last issue of the journal of th<* organ
ization, Mr. Lewis sayp:
The beneficial results to the practitioner of this
defence against suits for alleged malpractice are
unnecessary to recite: the benefits to the public
are many. Blackmailers are criminals and are as
distasteful to the layman as they are to the pro
fessional man. The public accords to you the right
to this protection as it expects you to also pro
tect it from isms, imposters and quacks. The pro
fes-Mon of medicine Is then most sensitive to public
criticism, and the physician is for that reason the
most vulnerable to the attacks of the blackmailer^
aided by the unscrupulous lawyer. It Is therefore
necessary that a. great, strong organization ehall
say to him, "Vse your best knowledge, conduct
yourself as a gentleman and fear nothing." The
New- York State Medical Association holding such a
position to its members, the blackmailer In a few
months win learn to look for his prey outside its
membership.
BODY OF DROWNED MAN FOUND.
The body of Henry Hoffman, forty-eight years
old, of No. 182 Hamburg-aye., Brooklyn, who was
drowned las=t Sunday l,y falling overboard from a
boat In Jamaica Bay, was found yesterday. Mrs.
Hoffman, who was in the boat when her husband
fell overboard and had since been searching for
his body, identified it.
WAXT RECEIVER FOR OHIO GAS COMPANY.
Dayton, Ohio, July 25.— Minority stockholders of
the Miami Valley Gas and Fuel Company brought
suit here to-day for the appointment of a receiver
and asking an injunction to prevent local banks
from paying any money to the Central Contract
and Finance Company. The petitioners allege that
the late Calvin S. Brlce, acting: with others, formed
a conspiracy whereby the company was allowed to
lose the ownership and control of gas wells and gas
fields in Mercer County by allowing leases to expire
and by allowing the wells to deteriorate, with the
object of securing them under the name of the
Central Contract and Finance Company. The pe
titioners aver that 6lnce 1894 the Central Contract
and Finance Company has received about $400,000
under the guise of royalties and compensation for
gas from its wells to be used by the Miami Valley
company for its patrons. They claim that the
Brice estate, through an attorney named Randall
of New- York, controls all the companies.

THE DAY'S OPERATIONS IN STOCKS.
Prices generally showed improvement in yes
terday's market, but there was no marker! ac
tivity nor significant fluctuations. In the early
dealings the Western railway shares made sharp
advances over Wednesday's final figures, while
the greater number of issues moved higher with
out any important demand. Reports of good
rains in the agricultural sectinn of the country
encouraged renewed hope in Wall Street circles
of a better corn yield than recently expected.
Speculators who were in the dumps Wednesday
saw plenty of corn in sitrht yesterday, and In
some circles the estimate of a 1,700,000,000
bushel harvest was accepted as conservative and
probable. A day before the same people would
not even admit the possibility of anything near
an average crop. Wall Street Is in th>» rapid
changing mood at present, and one day's opin
ions cannot be depended upon a? Bate guides for
the morrow. The market is a good trading af
fair, presenting excellent opportunities for quick
witted operators, but little safety for inexperi
enced commission house traders. <;<»neral con
ditions are in favor of holding all good stocks,
and the purchase on reactions of the cheap rail
road Issues and Industrial stocks of merit. A
sustained upward movement, however, may be
a long way off.
All reports from tho West agreed regarding
rrop conditions. This was unusual, as !n th»
last week a most conflicting Bel of advices had
been received. And for th^ first limp In several
weeks largf grain hous>»p recommended the pur
chace <if storks. This fact was tnk^n to indi
cate that the rain in the West had been ot suffi
cient volume to place the spring wheat crop oui of
danger, and to save a part of the damaged corn
area. Chicago advices (which recently have
been extraordinarily bad) indicated a break in
tiit- drouth In I"\va and relief in Nebraska and
the other States in the great corn belt. Heavy
rains were reported throughout the West, and
as a consequence stock market traders reached
the hasty conclusion that all uneasiness over the
crop situation rould be banished. Shorts In th-^
Granger and other Western shnr'-s were active
buyers, but there was little outside support,
while on the advance round amounts of long
stock cam» out.
The total dealings w«»re under -ifiO.OOrt shar* I*.1 *.
with the greatest activity In Atchison, Pt. r.uil.
Erie, Reading, Southern Pacific, I'nion Pacific
and the I'nlted States Steel shares. In the
stocks named advances of 102 per cent were
common, and at the. close strength In the Gran
ger and Steel shares was pronounced. Buying
of the latter Issues was said to be due to ex
pected favorable strike developments. l'n es
advanced easily on attempts to cover short con
tracts, this being particularly true in St. Paul
and Union Pacific. Money market conditions
were unchanged as far as lending 1 rates were
concernf-'l. but an inccreasing demand for cur
rency from the Interior was reported. Since last
Friday the hanks have lost to the Sub-Treasury
over $1,600,000 on Internal revenue account, and
the cash item in to-mnrrow's hank statement is
not likely, therefore, to show improvement.

MONEY AND EXCHANGE.
The money market continues easy in tone, and
some exceptional transactions have taken place at
4 per cent for six months on railroad dividend pay
ing stocks. Time rates are 4 per cent for sixty days
and ninety days and 4% per cent for four and six
months. On call the banks have been tending
money over the counter at 2£ per cent. The Sub-
Treasury was debtor at the Clearing House yes
terday morning for $952.703. on account of payments
for geld credits and other disbursements. Up to
the close of business yesterday, 1 however, the
banks, since Friday, had lost to the Sub-Treasury
$1,623,000. This loss is chiefly on account of internal
revenue and customs collections and Includes about
$585,000 transferred to Chicago. Prime mercantile

although public opinion is unquestionable «?*••
side of the employer with growing lmer«V» V" r

perhaps a greater influence has been exerti** 8 *

labor difficulty. The foreign markets remain th
changed. If It is true that supplies of sheet ¦» a t

here, there should be a sentimental »treneffc-2?
on the Continent from this cause. Of course « I
movement would be confined to finished nr'J,,
