Principal Pressure Against Pennsyl

A severe decline' occurred in the stock market

devt-lopmonts ami disquieting rernors. From
'Washington cajne * government report esti
mating tli* condition of the new cotton crop as

records, and from Missouri came a report of
the Stat-- Agricultural Bureau, showing a prob
able serious impairment in the winter wheat

lasT ■•' or so In Boston rumors were preva
lent of on*- or more houses in trouble,' and simi
lar rumors, which found no confirmation, were
he.ird regarding local firms.
The call money rate rose as high as 4 per cent,
bat most of the day's loans were effected at 2^2
per cent, and the closing rate was 2 i. The
principal pressure was exerted against Amal
gamated Copper and Pennsylvania. Amalga
mated, or. sales of more than 121.000 shares,
declined from 56"-s to 52. a new low record, and
closed at 52%, a net loss for th« day of 4%
Boston was active on the bear side of the
market, and it was said that Thomas W. Law
son was a heavy seller of the copper issues. A
published assertion that James Stillman, Will
iam G. Rockefeller and H. H. Rogers are down
on the books of the Amalgamated Copper Com
pany as holders of only two hundred shares
created an unfavorable impression here. The
selling- of Amalgamated Copper was ascribed
chiefly to the Lewieohn interest, because of The
brokers who executed the orders.
Pennsylvania, on sales of about 103.000 shares,
fell from 125% to 123? i. a. figure not previously
touched since January 10, I*9!>. closing with a
net loss of l v, points at 124. Rumors that the
selling was for account of the underwriting
syndicate were denied, and found few sup
porters. St. Paul was as weak as Pennsyl
vania, crumbling from I"'!"-* to 148%. and clos
ing at 14S T 4. a net decline of I 7 points. Union
Pacific lost I*4 points, Missouri Pacific V-%,
Rock Island I 3 *. Chicago and Northwester.! 3%.
Discussing the Street gossip of heavy
Lewisohn selling of Amalgamated, an associate
of the Lewisohns said:
"The Lewisohns have never had an interest in
Amalgamated Copper that they could not take
care of. The Amalgamated Copper Company
was never in better shape than now, particular
ly with the copper metal standing around lo
cents in price."

Address of James B. Bill at the Um
rersity of Minnesota.
Minneapolis, June 4— The commencement exer
cises of the University of Minnesota were held to
day. A feature of the day was the commencement
addres? by James B. Dill, the well known corpora
tion lawyer of New- York, whose them«% was -'The
Outlook for the College Graduate in America."
After eliminating the shirker, the trickster, the
drone and the "man with a pull" from the students
for whom his remarks might have suggestion and
value, Mr. Dil: uedared It to be hi? judgment
"that for the college graduate who has done his or
her work in college with honesty and faithfulness.
and who expects to make his or her way in the
world by like methods, there is ac outlook more
than promising."
Proceeding to a consideration of the effect of the
corporation movement on the outlook for college
graduates, th* speaker said.
The movement toward combination and agsrrega
tion bae taken possession of the American people
and Is a controlling factor in our business ana pro
fessional life. ,
An important lesson for the college graduate m
this is tlat he must go into a business or profes
sional life affected by these aggregations and com
The assertion has been made that the doing away
with the BmaU Independent manufacturer, the
elimination >f the small storekeeper, the apparent
crowding out of The individual man in profes
sional work is all against the college man. I
cannot bring myself to believe that this is true.
I believe ?har the tendency to organization to
combination has pur a demand on the college
trained minds. haE put a premium upon the ser
vices o' such men, and has made it easier than
formerly for the college graduate to get started
and to succeed in the world.
When the trust movement shall have steadied
Itself, and when it shall have eradicated those ten
dencies which are apparently in the wrong direc
tion, when it .-nail have increased and strength
ened those elements which are light, then the men
in charge of the great combinations ana in
executive positions will be the men who not only
have a knowiedtre of the business, but whose minds
have been broadly trained, and whose characters
have been farmed within university halls
The executive head of a great corporation, if he
is fitted for r-ia high post, is first of all unhurried
and systematic. He aoes not toach details— his
function Is i hat of deciding things.
Kis ability must be conspicuous, his attainments
wide his Industry ceaseless, but the rewards are
commensurate. J-'or reaching such a position and
reaping such lewards. both of wealth and of repu
tation, a college course, faithfully followed, offers
the bbete e t preparation, tor the four years of college
life in addition to giving the earnest student a
groundwork of political economy, of history, or
science and of modern languages as well as ancient,
should accustom him to sustained mental effort.
Mr. Dili discussed at some length -what he con
ceived to be the threatening aspect of the corporate
situation, drawing the conclusion that the employ
ment of college men by corporations was a virtual
necessity. He said in part:
The outlook frcm the corporate standpoint to-day
betokens the possibility of storms.
While I am a believer in combination and organ
ization, yet 1 believe that tendency has been car
ried in some instances beyond its legitimate pur
pose, and that there has taken possession of some a
combination fever. £ greed for unearned wealth,
which amounts almost to a mania. Many combina
tions have been organized nominally upon economic
grounds for mutual saving and the stopping oi com
petition, but really have accomplished little more
than the unloading of blocke of indigestible securi
ties upon a deceived public. In other words, the
combinations ware made to sell securities, so caiieQ.
rather than the manuractured product turned out
by the mills and factories.
Tne unexampled pK.sperlty of this country has
tempted men of two classes, who by no means con
stitute the maiority of those classes, to attempt to
secure for themselves more than their share of
prosperity, and by means other than by legitimate
productive work.
Corporations have been organized with an inflated
capitalization, based upon an assumed earning
power which could prove successful only In case of
& control of some particular branch of the indus
try; a control also to lac exclusion of others
legitimately entitled to their share of that particu
lar trade. Such institutions are called monopolies,
and they succeed, if they succeed at all. but tem
porarily and upon a basis of control which is repug
nant to American principles.
Again, a certain class of the labor element have
combined upon the same principle, namely, that of
Euppressing production, in order to increase arti
ficially the price of the commodity, which in this
case is labor.
The middle class i? the controlling 6iement of
this country, and soouer cr later, if these f-vils tend
to increase, we shall have legislation, if nothing
more serious, looking to the checking of combina
The outlook to-day for combinations, whether of
capital or labor, is not promising.
The sound corporations are continually endeavor
ing to strengthen themselves within themselves; to
make, their structure better, stronger and more
capable of resisting attack.
The corporation executive is well aware that no
better way to improve tne corporation exists than
by improving the personnel of the corporation's
employes of every grade. Therefore, it is that, as
far as practicable, college men are sought for. It
is because the college man. with his trained mind.
is believed to be a part of the strengthening system
that bia set vices are more tn demand to-day than
Mr. Dill pointed out that the tendency to-day Is
strongly toward specialization, adding::
I am not sure but that one -would be right in say
ing that a man who would become successful is
virtually forced to become a specialist, whether In
mercantile, financial or professional life.
This sharp subdivision of men into classes, groups
of workers this creation of specialties and special
ists, particularly in the professions, tends to de
prive men of the opportunity for the varied early
training which obtained when professional work
was more genera! in its scope: and. therefore, the
diminished brea-lth or practical training in the law
mast be made {rood by th« Increased fundamental
and' preparatory training of the university.
The University of Minnesota Is a coeducational
institution, and in his address Mr. Dill took occa
sion to refer to the advancement of education
among women ana the far reaching changes which
are resulting from that movement, saying in part:
Woman's progress was one of the most significant
movements of the last century; it will develop
broaden and gain strength in the new.
Woman's pres .nee in business enterprises will be
valued wherever loyalty, faithfulness arid intel
lectual alertness are appreciated. Women are not
•crowding out men: they are only making them
bustle a little to hold their places.
The man who contends that a woman cannot keep
a secret would revise his belief if he were familiar
with Wall street. Many of the weightiest financial
ana commercial secrets of the day are intrusted
u> women who art as private secretaries for well
known men. That confidence is not often m.'s-
The ' American woman is none the less a lady

President's Regrets Praise Captain

District Attorney Jerome preferred to sit on the
main floor. Nearly all the city departments were
represented among the hosts or guests, including
two or three police captains and ex-Police Commis

from President Roosevelt. Justice Rufua Peckham
and Mayor L«w President Eoc?»-fi' wrote from
Spokane. Wash.:
It is a matter of real regret to me that I cannot
be present at the dinner to my friend. Captain God
dard Not only do I value him as a friend, but Iye
always felt that if we had a few more men like
him each to do in his district the work Captain
Goddard has done In h!s. the gain for decent gov

regard and sincere regret that I shall not rave

p. B.— Good lor* be with you all. and especially
to Captain Goddard.
Governor Odell telegraphed from Newbnrg:
I deeply regret my inability to be present at the
dinner given to Captain Goddard to-night. No man
i« more drserving of the compliment than he on ac
count of his services in the protection of our youth
against vicious influences.
Mayor Low wrote:
I share the detestation which Captain Goddard
feels for the so-called game of policy, which. In ef
fect is only another form of stealing, and which is
peculiarly bad because it appeals especially to the
poor and ignorant, wno can 111 afford to lose money
in chat way. I think Captain Goddard ana the
policyp olicv " Society have made the- whole com
munity their debtors by their patient, vigorous and
successful campaign against this evil. Piease as
sure Captain Goddard of my high appreciation of
all that he has done.
Although the dinner was announced as compli
mentary to Captain Goddard and his society. It
was really in celebration of the arrest, conviction
and sentence of "AT Adams. All the speakers
made that the text of their discourse in their
eulogies of Captain Goddard. and. except Mr. Je
rome, hardly one of them snoke of anything else.
Mr. Baldwin, in his opening remarks, said that
the successful issue or Captain Goddard's campaign
against ""A!" Adams was a great achievement and
that the whole community was indebted to Captain
Goddard, not only because the "Policy King" was
in jail, but because he had successfully represented
the idea of persistency and continuing after the
end sought for until it was accomplished.
