r-Unr<rc That the Finn Did Not

American Tobacco bonds are acknowledged to be.
Early this morning Mr. Kuchanan, his as
sociates. Mr. Brown and Mr. Young, being with
him in Mr. Brown's apartments .in the "Wal
dorf-Astoria, gave out the following statement:

rMTiw in connection with the Dv«stijtation belns
conuui-ieU int<> last Saturday's business. We »>•"•
un-n. • 10 answer all •:■•■ questions put to us with
out referrins to our books, ana some of th<- tjues
uons were of such a character tnat we coiiz-icered
•them impertinent. One of the questions wa* ;n re
gard to one honored snares Ot Canadian Pacinc
vhicii was tendered at our window on Monday
i^oin a nrrr. wnich owed us tlie stock, and which
we .v..-: another rim;, according to the Oeartne
Hou^e tickets sent out as. usual every morning to
ail tbe brokers of the exchange, after the Clearing
Hou*e has figured out the most convenient method
of clearing me business of the preceding day. Mr.
Brown and Mr. Young were both on the Stock
Exchange, and 1 was diligently hustling around the
Street, with collateral under my ar™, in the en
deavor to make loans suflicient to induce our banks
to giv" us suaiclent certilication to handle the
enormous business we bad to put through during
tiie day. As is a common custom throughout the
Street, one of our stock clerks received the cer
tificate for one hundred shares of Canadian Pa
cin- and delivered it to Tripp & Co., who gave
us their check for the proceeds, which was depos
ited in bank in the usual way.
L»ur:ng the investigation by the special Stock t.x
change committee this afternoon great importance
feined to be placed upon the transaction because
our clerk did not give a check for the one hun
dred shares of Canadian Pacific when it was
thrown into bis window. After we were dismissed
from the Stock Exchange committee room, this
afternoon 1 investigate the case, and our clerk
explained that he was awfully busy and had told
the boy to call back for his check later (this Is a
very frequent occurrence in all brokers' offices on
all very busy days, when check writers art- neces
tH After our assignment I have a Blight recollection
■ .-- gnment 1 have s glikM r*co'..e<-tion
that a member of the firm which delivered the one
hundred shares of Canadian Pacinc to us came to
„U rU r ©flic* and complained that he had not received
Jiis check. He was told that we were sorry that
he" had not brought the matter to our attention
♦•arlier as the firm was in the hands of an assignee
;;nti fa "lawyer, and that we were powerless to cor
rect any errors made during the day. but I imme
diately introduced him to the assignee and request
• d the assignee to take up the case at once and
straighten It out. .. ......
I wa*s amused this afternoon to learn that Kgal
action was likely to be brought against the firm
immediately for conversion. The matter is, 01
course, of little importance, but it is due the public
us well as ourselves to have such matters under
j-trn.ii before they have an opportunity to reflect
discredit upon innocent people and stir i»r undue
apprehension in regard to the firm's action and
present position. Th« firm which delivered the one
huridre«3 Pharos of Canadian Pacific accepted a. re
< «>ipt for it after the assignment by A. O. Brown &
<"o The amount due •will, of course, be taken care
< f with tlie claims of other creditors. The Stock
Kkchange special investigating committee appeared
highly indignant and angry because of the position
taken by members of our firm in declining to an
swer offhand the questions put to us.
We have, however, written the following letter to
the secretary of the Stock Exchange:
"In <t»nnect!on with the interview we had with
your committee to-day we bear to say that inas
much as we were unable, to answer many of th"lr
questions without referring to our books, we shall
t«-; glad to nave your committee examine the books,
provided the assignee has no objection, in- order
that you may get full and accurate information
•upon all th* points In question."
You asked me the cause of the assignment. The
assignment was brought about by the refusal or
Bar banks to give us the usual daily certification
if. take car* of our bu^ines*; also the attitude
tak^n By the official? and members of th*- New
York Stock Exchange. The firm's position was
sT-ong and it -was perfectly able to meet all ob
iiratloTis. and would easily have avoided any
trouble had it received the fair treatment that
It had previously been accorded, but when th«
markrt became excited because of the rush of
brokers covering nur contracts ("which the hanks
had refused to give us the Ufrual facilities to de
liver), we reported to the president of the Stock
Exchange thai in view of such a handicap we
would . spend ■:■-' matter could be adjusted.

The committee of five, which President Thomas
was authorized to appoint at an extraordinary
meeting of th" governing committee of the ex
change last Monday, for the purpose of Investi
gating Saturday's stock market transactions,
■was ramod by him yesterday, as follows:
Ernest Groesheek, chairman; H. K. Pommy,
Charles "W. llaury, R. B. Doremup an«i Albert
E. Gpodhart.
The statement given out at Albany by Martin
H. nijam the Stat* Controller, that th« firm of
A. O. Brown & Co. had purchased only $3,000
worth of jirnrk transfer tax stamps in July and
August, ■whereas, as they had traded In 750.000
»>h;-.r<-v of stock on Saturday. they should have
Hied 515,000 worth of stamp? on that day's
transactions alone, to comply with the r**qulre
aaajntsj of the stock transfer tax law. caused con
siderable -TTin-.'»nt in Wall Street. Brokers said
that Mr. Glynn did not understand the situation,
which was that the firm had "given out" th«
orders t.> oth<°r brokerage houße», who had pro
viSed the necessary stamps and charged them
to A. O. Brown & Co. The same explanation
wsf given out at the offices of the failed firm
and by George W. Ely. secretary of the ex
John W. RhoadeF. the assignee of A. <>. Brown
& Co.. and his attorney. Dix W. Noel, were
hard at work yesterday on the books, of the firm
trying to pet at an «stimate of Its liabilities,
but. owing to the extensive character of the
business which precipitated the failure, no state
ment would if possible for some days yet, Mr.
Noel said. It Ik generally believed, however, as
Ftated in The Tribune yesterday, that the lia
bilities will be at least £-J.~* *>.<*** and may rt-ach
In banking circles it was said that steps had
been taken to prevent, in so far as possible, a
H;read of the difficulties, and as a result of
these assurances there was a general belief at
the close «,r btawjseafl that the crisis had been
1 passed. • . '
; It xras learned yesterday that as a result of
I the recent sensational developments on the New
Y«.rk Stock Exchange there was a movement on
I loot to have th.- authorities of the institution
j appoint a special j>e.rmanent audit committee,
Mtti the power to inspect the books of all the
i iJH-m!,<ri- at stated intervals, and to make spe
y_ cial examinations whenever it was thought
Proper or the need of such examination was ap
parent. This suggestion *** already been made.
It is said, to the governing committee of the ex
| thange. and ii Is understood that It has the
j backing of a number of influential members.
The plan suggested ■ that the audit commit
tee shall have power* similar to those of bank
%: The Hvstem of having an exchange, audit com
■*t« ie In use a! the present time on the Paris
Bourse, anil has been efficient, it is said, in pre
venting scandals and anuses such as have oc
curred here recently. Many of the old and con
servative element on the exchange are known
to be bitterly opposed to the highly speculative
and plunging (.[^rations which have \^d to re
<ent failures, and are fearful that the good name
Of the exchange will suffer irreparahle injury
unless some method of preventing these spec
tacular doings and' consequent scandal? i^ de
vised. Again, it is feared that unless the ex
change takes the initiative, legislative measures
wil: l»e passed which might cause a great deal
of trouble to the exchange and its members.
Large Claims Against Rogers &
Pi/att — Receivers A p pointed.
The failure of one of the largest shellac firms In
the country was announced yesterday, when Judge
Holt, of the T'niterl States Circuit Court, appointed
two receivers for Rogers & Fyatt. dealers in and
manufacturers of shellac at No. 129 Front street.
Franklin B. Kirkhride and Runyon Pyatt. the two
receivers, were appointed in an action In equity
brought by RaiM Brothers, of I^ondon, N. V.. and
Henri' B. Chatneld. of Elizabeth, N. .1.
Rail; Brothers have claims upon the firm for
material furnished amounting to $"06.R53 94. The
other party to the pult for receivers. Henry S.
Chatfleld. owns <"■'>* shares of the capital stock of
Roger« d- Pyatt. the value of which is given as
Will Continue in Charge of Milliken
Brothers. It Is Believed.
The extension of time obtained last month by the.
receivers of Milliken Brothers expires on Tuesday,
but it waß learned yesterday that a further exten
sion will probably be asked for. as the condition of
the concern is not yet such as to permit of a wind
ing up of the receivership. From present indica
tions it is believed that some months will elapse
before the company Ik returned to the stockholders.
The plans for the reorganization of the. concern
have noT advanced so rapidly as was expected, it
is said, because the general financial conditions
have been such as to prevent the raising of addi
tional funds necessary for a reorganization. The
rehabilitation of the company also awaits a more
pronounced revival in the steel industry. It is stated,
however, that the business of the Milliken company
is of fairly good volume, considering general condi
tions, although the earnings are of course, consid
erably under normal.
Since the repe.vers t"ok charge of the Milliken
concern, on June 31, IST. they have succeeded In
materially sfength* ning the operating organization
of the company.

Chicago, Aug. 2B— Further delay to harvest oper
ations in the Canadian Northwest due to wet
weather was the chief <vui<««> of a strong tone in the
local wheat market to-day. Corn, oats and provi
sion? were firm as a result of the strength of
Reports of additional rain In the western prov
inces of Canada greeted traders in the wheat pit
and brought out a fairly active demand at the
opening, which resulted In Initial advances of V&Vic
to lie%c The wa'-her map for Minnesota and the.
Dakotns gave additional stimulus to bullish senti
ment, the official forecast being for rain to-day in
tnos*> three Important spring wheat, states. An
trading progressed reports began to circulate In
th« pit which told of a revival In export business
for both wheat and flour. Bales of cash wheat
here were, reported nt IM.OOO bushels, the bulk of
which was for export, and Kansas City reported
an equal amount, most of which -was for shipment
abroad. The, total sales. Including 14 boatloads of
durum at New York for Mediterranean ports, were
estimated at 412.00T) bushels. Minneapolis also
claimed exporters were liberal purchasers of flour.
These advices caused the market to rule firm nil
day. The close was firm at a trifle below the high
point and at net gnins of %j?Uc to %c, compared
with the previous close, Clearances of wheat and
flour were equal to 650,000 bushels, Primary receipts
were 795. «0" bushels, compared with 721.000 bushels
the corresponding day a year ago. Minneapolis,
Duluth and Chicago reported receipts of 461 cars,
against 381 cars last week and 29S cars a year sen.
An advance of V in cash corn, smaller accept
ances from the country, and the strength of wheat
were the chief reasons for a firm market for corn
following an easy opening. The market was bear
ishly affected at the start by continued good
weather for the new crop. I^eadlng commission
houses were active bidders, but offerings during
the greater part of the day were light. Local hold
ers told quite freely late in the day, and this caused
a loss of a great part of the earlier gains. The
close was steady, with prices unchanged to \i©*»c
hicher compared with the previous close. Local
receipts were 224 cars, with 60 of contract grade.
Oats were strong on buying by cash houses,
which was based mainly on continued light accept
ances from the country. At the sample tables cash
oats were He higher. The market closed strong,
almost the top point, final quotations showing net
gains of %c to %c for the day. Local receipts ->er«
159 cars.
Additional sales of lard to exporters were chiefly
responsible for strong tone in provisions, although
considerable decrease in the amount of hoc re
ceipts at western packing centres was an important
factor. Cash Interests and local packers were the
principal supporters of the market. The close was
arm at net gains of {fee to 10c.
" estimated receipts for to-morrow— W heat. 65 cars;
corn- _ij <" vr * v oats. 215 cars; hogs, 19,000 head.
"The Iron Ace" says:
"In the Birmingham district, in Virginia, in Bast
em Pennsylvania and in the Chicago district pro
ducers of pier iron are maintaining a considerably
firmer attitude and are booking some business at
better prices. The Buffalo district is Belling quite
freely in New England. Is dominating the Hudson
River Valley, and is snipping into the metropolitan
district, with the aid of canal freights. In the
Central West, in the Pittsburg district and in South
ern Ohio the attitude of makers la more uncertain.
Statistics Covering forty-three blast furnacea in
eastern and central Pennsylvania and in Virginia
show a decline in stocks of close to 15.080 tons and
an increase durinp one month in orders from
close to 235.000 tons to over SBo.OQO tons. There has
been considerable movement in pis iron in the East
durinfr the last week, and there is quite a larpe in
quiry. One maker of cast iron pipe purchased
15.000 ton«. The Pennsylvania Railroad has bought
an a^r^resate of 10.,V>0 tons of pie iron, taking 660
tons, of foundr- iron from two Eastern coke fur
naces, and 4.f<00 tons of charcoal iron, of which
I.!**) tons was from New England. 1.500 tons of
Lake Superior and 5™ tons Southern. Sales of
basin pig iron include one lot of o.noo tons of Vir
gt|na for a New England plant. LSNtou, Eastern
Pennsylvania. al?o for New England, and ;>,<X>n tons
for Philadelphia district
•*Thi>re is some reference made from time to time
on, the subject of shading established prices. It
Is 'true that such concessions are l«»tng quite widely
made, but they do not extend beyond $1 or $2 a ton.
an.l are not regarded as troublesome. Pom* 1 week?
agin - the plate makers had occasion to compare
notes, and promise a more strict adherence. In
tbe light rail trade, in which the rerolling mills
play so important a part, the situation is more se
rious, and the large steel mills ar« taking a hand
in the struggle. New rails, weighing from 25 to 4S
pounds, have b*>en"sold as low as J22 a ton. The
placing of an order for 1,000 standard steel cars by
the Chicago & Alton road, which would call for
9.000 tons of Steel, is regarded as the forerunner of
more liberal buying in this direction."
•■The Iron Trade Review" says:
"Orders for lake vessels and freight cars, which
will require about twenty-five tons of plates and
shapes, with negotiations pending for ten or twelve
other lake vessels and numerous inquiries for cars,
have greatly improved th« tone of the finished ma
terial market In addition to the large orders
placed, specifications on near!;, all finished lines are
coming in satisfactorily. The orders for lake ves
sels, foreshadowed last week, have been placed by
the Pittsburg. Steamship Company, the vessel de
partment of the United States Steel Corporation,
with the American Shipbuilding Company, each
vessel requiring about five thousand tons of steel.
The plates will be rolled at the Homestead plant of
the Carnepio Sue] Company. The ordering of lake
vessels during a season of great depression in lake
traffic indicates confidence that this year's inactiv
ity will be followed by yean of gr>-a; prosperity. "

COFFEE — The coffee market did better to-day on
scattered covering, which seemed to reflect the favorable/ '
progress of September evenintr up preparatory to the f!r«t ,
notice day. and th« reports from' Brazil that The so called ,
valorization bill hud been made a law. Business was mod
erately active, but larjtely in the way of further ex
changes with sales, Including these transactions, about j
7<» (mo bags. The market closed at a decline of 5 points
on the Aupust hit price, but generally unchanged to 10
points higher The new valorization law Is said to au- .
thorise a loan of f1f.,000.0n0 Increase th» surtax from > I
to 5 franca increase the. export duty from !• to 1! per j
cent, an.; to also restrict experts by placing an additional
duty of ••>< per cent upon all exports in ex-- of j
9,000,000 for the current season. The passing of this ;
law is taken to moan that the Brazilian government sees
Its way clear to continue the holding movement, and :
that producers are willing to stand th- additional taxes
... r.rcler to rnrry out the policy to which the valorization
plan ii«« committed them. It is understood In trade clr- 1
cl«s thai the III! lOSaifl surtax, th« surtax »->in B the part 1
of the povemment levies which go toward d"'raylns the :
expenses of valorization, will go into effect on vv r »r 1. ,
the Idea being that this may be follow*! by » decided
failing off 1n the movement to the ports Pending the
Imposition of the additional surtax receipt* are ; expected
t, continue heavy, and are probably no safe r'i'l* to the. j
actual crop. European market, made a • leady «howinK

leaders at Chicago was aulte bullish, predicting higher

considerable outside buying from quarters that have
