STOCK MARKET OPERATIONS.
Stock market values moved in the direction
of higher quotation? in the greater part of the
flay, notwithstanding th* fact that call money
rates were well above the average nf last week.
while no engagements of pold for Import were
made. Sentiment regarding th» money market
was more affected by the annoum ( that
the Secretary of the Treasury would buy • ? '-'-"
000,000 of the government bond? which fall due
in July than by the ab?»nce of pr.irj Import ar
rangements and high money rates, though the
terms of the government for th<» purchase r,f ifto
bonds did not appear to appeal to bankers who
are large holders of the Issue The copper pharoe.
American Sugar Refining. th«» ste«»l issu^p. Penn
sylvania, Reading, the Harrli lai Ptocks and St.
Paul were among the ptr<">ng features that nt
tracted special . attention, particularly Ana
conda of the copper group, which sold within a
few points of Its best price r>n record: Ana
conda's par value is ?'-'- '. and if It were quoted
on a parity basis its current price • >uld be
above 75. a quotation which is not rnn«i«le»«"i
at all dear, in view of the dividends which the
company pays/the probability of an increase in
the rate and of the maintenance °f the copper
market on its present prosperous level for many
month? tn come. Th^re was no activity on.th«»
part of commission houses for ordinary public
account, but In many of the more prominent
issues houses which usually are identified with
the substantial Wall Street Interests were
buyers throughout the day. Buying of this
character also was noticed In some of the low
priced shares, notably Missouri] Kansas & Texas
and Colorado Southern, both of which enjoyed
net gains of more than 2 per cent. The general
strength was well maintained in the last hour,
closing prices being near the best of the day,
with net gaim of from 1 to 2 per cent common.
The action of the Secretary of the Treasury
in offering to purchase $25,000,000 of the gov
ernment bonds that mature in Jury at 101%, If
accepted by holders, will benefit the channels of
trade to that extent, assuming that the sellers
do not lock up the proceeds in their safe deposit
boxes or stockings. There is little chance of
the latter, as money commands too good a price
for it to remain idle, but it should not for a mo
ment be assumed that the purchase of this
amount of bonds, if made, will lead to extreme
ease in the money market or warrant heavy
speculative operations in ptocks on borrowed
money. The Treasury ran afford to pay off the
bonds to the amount of $25,000,000 in cash at
this time, and there is no good reason that, a
little later on In the season, further purchases
of these issues should not be made, n.s.the gov
ernment is in a strong financial position and la
growing stronger every day through Its large
excess of receipts over expenditures, but at
101%. the price offered by the Secretary, then*
is little Inducement for holders to phi. The fact
that the Secretary of the Treasury Is practically
compelled to offer even doubtful assistance to
the money market ought to Impress upon the
mind of Congress the urgent need of th< pis
sage at the current session of th*> National
Legislature of currency reform measures, to the
end that the government may not constantly be
withdrawing from the avenues of trade large
sums of money that merely go into the Treasury
vaults, where they do no good to any on* , while
seriously interfering with the country's legiti
mate business. And last Saturday' Clearing
House statement also should Impress our law
makers with the necessity of currency reform
Through no fault of their own, the local institu
tions are relatively weak In available resources,
but fortunately the foreign exchange market is
running in favor of this country, and i he-re is a
good prospect of a considerable movement of
the yellow metal to this si']'- of the ocean,
despite the fact that foreign bankers are not
favorable to an operation of this character
London's response to the American Inquiry for
gold was reflected yesterday In a stronger rate
for open market discounts and an advance In
the price of bar gold, with talk of a higher rate
by the Bank of England in the near future.
Europe owes the United States money This
fact does not receive ihe prominence it. deserves,
but it is appreciated, nevertheless, by well In
formed bankers, and it serves to ••■ <■■ in the
higher circles of finance 8 feeling of confidence
over the future position of the money market
which, however, is not shared in by interests
who reckon the future money situation on th«
current holdings of the local banks. Trade ac
tivity throughout the country has prevented a
large return movement ■■( money from the in
terior in the last five weeks, while Treasury ab
sorptions have taken cash from the banks but
these factors will not drive th« locnl financial
markets into panic, though they may tend to
restrict new security and note issues and repress
bull activity on the Stock Exchange.
