Stock Exchange Brokers Substitute
j Firecrackers for Sales. •
As regards business yesterday was the dullest
day the Stock Exchange has seen for twelve years,
but it was not dull otherwise, for what few brok
ers there were in attendance on the floor kept
things lively with exploding torpedoes and fire
crackers and skylarking of various kinds. The ex
change was open against the wishes of a. majority
of the members, who had petitioned, the governing
committee for' an extra holiday, only to meet with
a refusal, and those who did attend had evidently
made up their minds to have a Fourth of July cele
bration a day ahead of time.
The fun began soon after the opening, when
somebody let drop a torpedo that must have been
especially made for the occasion, judging by the re
port. It was the signal, apparently, for the cele
bration to begin, for the popping and banging be
came general all over the floor. In vain Chairman
Talhert pounded with his gavel to restore order; ha
could not be heard above the din.
Finally he detected Charles Knoblauch, a former
Rough Rider and friend of President Roosevelt, in
the act of exploding a .torpedo, and fined him $10.
This acted as a damper for a time, as business was
at such a low ebb that even a $10 fine promised to
make serious inroads on the day's profits of most of
the brokers. A committee was finally appointed to
call upon the chairman and request a remission of
the fine. This was granted, and was followed by a
roar of torpedoes as a token of the members' ap
preciation of the fact. Chairman Talbert thereupon
cave up tha attempt to keep order and let the
brokers celebrate to their hearts' content.
In the mean time trading was almost at a stand
still. The first hour's transactions footed up only
22.300 shares, and in the second hour only 6.096
shares were dealt in. The total for the day was
71,592 shares, which was the smallest day's busi
ness since May. 1896. when the total was 65,000
The dulness of the "big board" was. If anything,
exceeded on the Consolidated Stock Exchange.
Business virtually ceased shortly after the open
ing:, -when the rules cf the floor were suspended.
The remainder of the session on the "little board"
'■was taken up by the few brokers in attendance in
skylarking; but there were no fireworks. On the
curb market the principal occupation of the brokers
•was the exploding: cf firecrackers and torpedoes,
little trading being done. '
. The attendance of customers at th«, brokerage
offices was the smallest seen in years. One large
house which has fourteen price tickers for its cus
tomers had seven each for the clients who were in
attendance yesterday when the market opened.
Ordered to Guarantee Dividend on
Former Subsidiary.
New Haven. July 3.— A decree was entered.- by
the Superior Court to-day by which the New York,
New Haven & Hartford Railroad Company is or
dered to Indorse a guarantee of payment of divi
dends on the preferred Ehares of the. New Eng
land Investment and Security Company, which Is
the holder of certain trolley properties in Massa
chusetts formerly owned by the New Haven com
pany. The decree is a step toward taking the ques
tions at issue to the Supreme Court of Errors.
To the complaint the investment company ad
mitted ihe facts, and the New Haven company de
murred. To-day'B proceedings came up on the de
murrer, and the court rnled that the answer of
the New Haven company, that it was not obliged
to pay the dividend, was not sufficient and entered
the decree. The New Haven company is ordered
forthwith to Indorse upon the certificate of the
rlaintiff the guarantee that it will pay cumulative
semi-annual dividends p.t the rate- of 4 per cent
per annum upon the par value of the outstand
ing preferred shares, and to pay any accrued divi
dends if demand is made for them, and also to
pay F*? a share, with dividends accruing, should
the f»rtificat»»« N» called in for redemption. And
the trustees named are ordered to take such steps
as necessary to deliver to the plaintiff the certifi
cate with the gua-aniee indorsed upon ft.
Campaign Agamtt Bovine Tubercu
loms Discussed, at Albany.
Albany. J»!y S.— Plans for the enforcement of
the act passed et the extraordinary session of the
r«tls1s.llll». designed to aid the State Department
cf Agriculture in its campaign against bovine
tuberculosis, were considered to-day at a con
ference between Commissioner Pearson, First As
sistant Commissioner Flanders, Dr. V. A. Moore,
dean of th« State Veterinary College, at Cornell
T*niver6ity, and the seventeen veterinarians who
represent the State Department of Agriculture at
various places in the state. It was announced that
the prospects of controlling bovine tuberculosis in
this ptate were never so promising. These condi
tions are wttributed^to the Increased indemnity to
ba paid by the state for condemned animals, as
provided by the new law. and the requirement that
no person shall sell for breeding or dairy purposes
an animal which the owner knows to be diseased,
unless the buyer is Informed in writing that the
disease exists. This Information is also to be given
to the Commissioner of Agriculture.
Reports were submitted at the conference show-
Ing the value of the tuberculin test in connection
with the physical examination for the diagnosis of
tuberculosis. It was reported that in one herd
Threw advanced cases of tuberculosis were not
found by a careful physical examination made by
the veterinarian, assisted by the owner, but they
were clearly shown by the tuberculin test and
proved by poet-mortems.
Commissioner Pearson announces that it wW be
the policy Of the department to assist cattla own
ers as much as possible by the physical test alone
when the tuberculin test 1? not wanted, but h»
declares the tuberculin test, which accomplishes
quicker reeults. is generally wanted by dairymen.

Syracuse. July 3 J. B. Reynolds. S. B. Donnelly
and Henry B. Needham, Panama Canal labor com
missioners, to-day visited Brewerton and Fulton to
■sjcvn information regarding the housing of la
ty^rerp «»r,gag»d on barge canal work, with a view
of adopting on the isthmus ajiy improvements they
may discover.
Manchester. July 3.-A committee of the Fed
erated Master Cotton Spinners decided to-day to
recommend a further curtailment of production
among the users of American cotton. This is the
second step in this direction. On May 15 the spin
ners of American cotton decided to run on ehort
time because of the slackened trade.

P. S. Commimnners Will Do Every
thing to Keep Bond Alive.
There were indications yesterday that the Public
Service Commission would not permit the abandon
ment of the service of the Central Park. North &
East River Railroad Company until it had exhaust
ed even' expedient within its power. At a hearing
yesterday before Chairman Willcox and Commis
sioner Eustis, to determine what would be the out
come of the order of Judsre Lacombe !n the federal
court that the receivers of the Metropolitan Street
Railway Company cancel the lease of the Central
Park company on July 10. the chairman said:
"What we want to know is whether somebody is
going to run the road, as before, so as to accom
modate the public." m
"That is just the proposition that confronts us.
SaM Henry Thompson, counsel for the majority
stockholders of the road. "We shall be somewhat
embarrassed, but we will get together and do the
best we can."
That the word "embarrassed" was putting it
somewhat mildly was developed when Oren Root.
general manager of the Metropolitan, testified re
garding the rolling stock of the lines acquired with
the lease. He said:
"I presume that the horses that were acquired
then are dead, and also that the cars obtained have
either been sold or broken up. I am not absolutely
sure about the cars. There may be some of them
somewhere, but I am qmte sure we have none of
the horses that used to draw the cars in 69th street
that we can turn over to the Belt Line."
Oliver C. Semple, counsel for the commission,
brought out that Mr. Root had resigned some time
ago as a director of the Central Park company,
which Is familiarly known as the "Belt Lino" and
Includes the 69th street crosstown electric line and
the 2Sth and 2»th street horse car lines. Mr. Root
testified that he resigned two months ago because
it looked as though a receiver might be appointed
for the company. He never had been familiar with
the affairs of the company, he said.
Mr. Thompson said there would be a meeting of
the majority stockholders at No. 115 Broadway at
10:30 a. m. on July 11. to choose new directors and
officers. At that time he hoped a decision would
he reached as to the future of the property. "'As
we understand it," he said, "the Metropolitan in
terests expect to turn over the 'Belt Line' to us
just as it stands, without any electrification, and
expects us to operate it."
Commissioner Eustis said the commission wanted
to know whether there was any intention of discon
tinuing the service, so an order to prevent it could
do Issued. It is though', that some arrangement
lor the temporary operation of the lines can be
made pending a final settlement of the trouble.
As the commission has been unable to subpoena
H. H. Vreeland. president; I>aniel B. Hasbrouck
and Charles E. Warren, vice-presidents, and Ed
ward Sayre, secretary, ot the "Beit Line, ""as yet,
the hearing was adjourned until Tuesday.
Tests Show They Are Not Needed, Says Vice-
President Rea,
After an exhaustive series of tests, the Pennsyl
vania Railroad has decided that it is not necessary
to put piles under its North River tunnels, which
rest upon soft material. These tubes were joined
in 1906, and were to constructed that if it was
found necessary piles could be put under them.
Since then two of the Hudson company's tunnels
which have no pile imppm-ts have been success
fully operated.
Vice-President Rea ot the Pennsylvania Railroad,
who is in charge of the construction of the tunnels,
authorized the ptatement yesterday that no piles
would be put under its tunnels, although they
could be inserted at any time in the future should
the necessity arise.
The tunnels are to be finished tnside with a two
foot lining of concrete, which will add to their sta
bility and enable them to withstand any pressure
to whioh they may be subjected.
Vote of Employes in Providence Said to
Favor It.
Providence, July B.— Returns from the vote taken
yesterday and to-day by the street railway men
employed by the Rhode Island Company show that
up to this r fternoon 1,227 of the 1,400 employes had

lations with the company and their membership
in the I'nited Traction Mutual Benefit Association,
rathor than become members of the AmaJga
mated Association of Street Railway Employes.
Nevertheless, labor union officials assert that a
large percentage of -.he employes have voted to
strike if their demands are not acceded to and
that the strike will probably be called within for
ty-eight hours.

Special Counsel in Government Suit.
Nashville. Ter.n.. July S.-In the case of the
United States against the Virginia-Carolina Chemi
cal Company and other* Federal Judge John E.
McCtOl here to-day quashed the Indictment, which

Chicago. July 3.— Lower cables and Improved
weather for harvesting in the Southwest had a
depressing effect to-day on the local wheat mar
ket the September delivery closing at a net loss
of Uc to %c. Corn and oats were each up *,c to
Ke. Provisions were in c to 47i,c to 50c higher.
The wheat market opened weak and continued
weak the greater part of the day. owing to scat
tered sales by commission houses. Trade was in
clined to be dull owing to a short session of the
exchange to-day and to the complete cessation of
business to-morrow. The principal bearish factors
were a decline at Liverpool in the face of an ad
vance here yesterday, and the generally clear
weather in the harvesting fields of the Southwest.
Crop news was more meagre than for some time
past and that received from the Northwest was
of a bearish nature while the report of a St.
Louis trade Journal regarding the condition and
yield of winter wheat was somewhat bullish.
excessive damage by rains and by insects being
emphasized. The market closed easy. September
opened *C to %c lower at 87 % cto 87»ic sold at
87 % c and then advanced to SS^ic. The close was
at 87% cto 87 % c. Clearances of wheat and flour
were equal to 80,200 bushels. Exports for the
week as shown by Bradstreefs were equal to
2 000 000 bushels. Primary receipts were 364.000
bushels, compared with 878,000 bushels the cor
responding day a year ago. Minneapolis. Duluth
and Chicago reported receipts of 213 cars, against
231 cars last week and 582 cars for two days a
year ago.
The feature of trade in corn was active During
of July by shorts, which resulted In an advance
of nearly 2c in that option. Small receipts and
likelihood that the government report to be Issued
next Wednesday will be bullish were the chief
reasons for the upturn. Other deliveries were af
fected by the strength of July, the market In gen
eral being strong during the last half of the ses
sion. Sentiment early was a trifle bearish on ac
count of the slump in wheat. The market closed
firm. September opened a shade to He lower at
71V»o to 71Hc to 7114 c cold at 70>,c and then
advanced to 72>ric. The close was at 71 %c to
71 %c. Local receipts were 153 cars, with 17 of
contract grade.
Oats were inclined to be weak at the start in
sympathy with wheat and corn, but later prices
rallied on buying by cash interests and commis
sion houses. The close was firm. September
opened He to %c lower, at 40% cto 4d\e. ad
vanced to 41^ic. and closed at 40;ic to 41c. Local
receipts were 146 car?
Provisions were strong from start to finish be
cause of active demand by shorts and local pack
ers. A 5c to 10c advance in live hogs was the
main reason for the firmness. Pork was in espe
cially good demand, and showed toe greatest gain,
the September delivery closing with a net ad
vance of 47}4c to 50c at $15 55. Lard was up 10c
at $8 47ȣc. Ribs were 17% cto 20c higher at
