THE FINANCIAL MARKETS
DULL WEEK IN STOCKS AXD LITTLE LIFE IN
MONEY.
Good Demand for First Class Bonds-Railroad Earning, Begin to
Improve. , i '
THE WEEK IN WALL STREET.
Stock market trading in the last week -was
1 light in volume, while prices until Friday moved
within narrow limits, changes representing the
operations of the professional element, which
! moved from one side of the account to the other.
! according to the chances of making profits
I The substantial Wall Street interests were DM
. factors in the early dealings, except to the ex
teat of maintaining a firm hold on their securi
ties', their attitude, despite election uncertainties
, and various bear rumors, reflecting supreme
j confidence In high circles of finance in the elec
! tion of Mr. Taft and In the development of more
favorable trade conditions following the Novem-
I ber voting. In the last two days of the week
| prices were bid up quite rapidly. Wall Street
naturally is Interested in the political campaign,
and it would consider the election of Mr. Bryan
most unfortunate for the business Interests of
the country, inasmuch as the policies advocated
by the Democratic candidate are economically
unsound and if put into practice inevitably
would result in upsetting the country's indus
tries. Mr. Bryan may believe that his ideas
are sound, but the practical business men know
that they are absolutely wrong. And the busi
i ness men of this country do not care for any
| experimental work on banking and industrial
lines by a party that never has shown itself
competent to be trusted with power. The
American bankers at their convention last week
declared against the guarantee of bank deposits
because they knew that the adoption of such a
plan would result in serious disturbance. Mr.
Bryan wants bank deposits guaranteed, hut Mr.
Bryan knows nothing about banking, and he
exhibits great assurance in his efforts to con
vince the voters that his theories must be
placed ahead of the knowledge and experience
of men who have made banking their business.
It is unfortunate, that some people take Mr-
Bryan seriously.
Stocks are selling a trifle under the best
prices of the summer, but they still are high In
the greater number of instances and more than
discount the return of prosperity and the elec
tion of Mr. Taft. The chance, however, of
lower prices, except on passing reactions, does
not appear at all promising, for the good reason
that there Is nothing technically weak in mar
ket conditions. There is more stock in in
vestors' boxes than ever before recorded, ac
cording to the transfer books of corporation?,
and the floating speculative supply Is extremely
light. Of course, if anything should happen
that would tend to weaken the intrinsic value
of securities, as the election of Mr. Bryan, there
doubtless would be heavy investment liquidation
and the establishment of prices on a lower level,
but, fortunately, all signs point to Republican I
success and a period of Industrial growth •
greater than any ever before recorded in the
history of the country. Everything in the busi
ness world is sound underneath at present.
Every one is proceeding cautiously and making
no extensive commitments for the future. There
are, however, in many lines large contracts
ready for development contingent upon the
election of Mr. Taft. , The ease in money rates
reflects an absence of mercantile demand, and
the scarcity of commercial paper offerings in
dicates dull trade conditions, but the large sup
plies of funds are laying the foundation for
tremendous industrial expansion. Domestic ex
change rates do not show any great demand
from the interior on this centra for funds, but
an inquiry of greater proportions undoubtedly
will arise In the near future, as, despite the
strong condition of the out-of-town banks, they
are not in a position to finance the harvests
without drawing on their balances here. They
already are drawing on their New York cor
respondents for funds to meet payments due
the Treasury, the large loss by the local banks
to the Sub-Treasury last week being due in
great part to the payment of drafts in favor of
the Treasury on the banks that hold out-of
town deposits.
Money is easy the world over. The holdings
of the Bank of England and of the Bank of
France are tremendous, but there is no active
demand from borrowers. Paris is getting ready
to finance a new Russian loan and England and
the United States are in a position to help if
assistance should be required, though it is not
at all likely that outsiders, except perhaps Ger
man bankers, will secure a slice of the Rus
sian Issue. Money will not remain inactive in
definitely. The time will come when there will
bo a lively demand for accommodation in all
parts of th« world, probably greater in the
United States than In any other country, but
exorbitant rates for funds appear out of the
question. The fall season generally has wit- 1
nessed disturbance in the money market, owing
to the bad features of the currency system, but
In the current autumn no trouble will develop,
as the banks hold unusual reserves, while they
can if necessary take advantage of the legisla- i
tion passed by the last session of Congress per
mitting the Issuance of emergency currency.
There will be practically no profit to the banks
in emergency currency, owing to the high tax
imposed, and unless there should be a real
emergency this sort of circulation will not be
asked for. it Is to be hoped that Congress at
Its next meeting will reform the currency on
scientific and business principles, and in the
mean time the business men and the bankers
ought to gel together and agree on some plan
that will appeal to our lawmakers.
Railroad earnings for the closing weeks in
September showed improvement over the results
of preceding weeks In the current year, while
the net earnings for August in many instances
presented encouraging exhibits, as a result of
reduced operating expenses. The practice of
cutting down operating costs If continued would
seriously Impair the physical efficiency of the
railroads, but there are many good reasons for
the belief that in the next twelve months the
policy of economy will not be found compulsory
to such an extent as noted In the last eight j
months. All the roads in the country will need
new rails and new rolling stock in the coming
year, and it Is likely they will be able to take
care of their needs as a result of better gross
results and ability to market new securities at |
favorable terms. It Is probable that a large
amount of new securities will come on the mar
ket in 1909 for the purpose of supplying the
transportation companies with funds to carry
out contemplated improvements, including ex
tensions and betterments, and the expenditure
of money in this manner will be a most Im
portant factor in restoring normal times in the
business world. It will bring large, orders to
the equipment companies, to the rail mills, to
bridge builders and to miscellaneous construc
tors, while it will give employment to "thou
sands of men and increase the actual value of
investment securities.
There was a good demand for first class bonds
last week, and on Friday and Saturday an active
bull dilation in stocks, led by the Harriman
shares. Bock Island preferred and Reading The
bis men appear to believe that higher prices an
be made on the Ktrong technical position of the
market, but it Is not likely that much of a pub
