THE FINANCIAL MARKETS
EUROPEAN POLITICAL COMPLICATIONS THE CHIEF
INFLUENCE IN THE MOVEMENTS OF STOCKS.
Advancing Tendency in Business and Indvstry-Rise in Foreign Ex
change Rates— Mr. Harrimnn and the Rock Island.
THE W3EK IN WALL STREET,
Comparatively little attention was given by
the stock market last week to the progress of
the national campaign, although the election for
President was to be held within a short four
week* and the Question settled whether there
m to be . speedy re-establishment of^proe
perltv or a retardation. Overshadowing.Amen
can politics m a primary market ftu******
was the European political situation v.-hich las,
Monday so suddenly assumed imp stance Ith
the proclamation of Bulgarian Independence^
Prince Ferdinand and the issuance by h^Em
peror Francis Joseph of his decree adding Bosnia
and Herzegovina to his dominion*. T hese
measures, which, although independently an
nounced, appeared to have their origin in an
understanding to which Germany £ as party.
excited in the minds of European capitalists and
investors, as well as statesmen, jrnne ap
prehension of the possible involving of the great
powers in actual hostilities, and these pre
hensions were reflected in weakness on the
European stock exchanges and in heavy sale, in
this market for foreign account. Those sales,
which reached their maximum on Thursdas.
when the foreign outlook was more menacing
than on any of the preceding a^vlrtually
created on Saturday, when it appeared that an
agreement was likely to be reached among the
powers for a conference at which revision of the
Treaty of Berlin should be discussed; but dur
ing the week about 250.000 shares of various
stocks were sold here for English and Conti
nental account. A promising bull movement
had been got under way toward the end of the
preceding week, only to be blocked almost at its
outset by the flood of foreign holdings. With
the heavy offerings from this source, the ab
sorption of which day after day caused price
reactions sometimes violent, came liquidation
from various sources here and revived activity
on the part of operators for the decline; the re
sult being a widely fluctuating market, with de
clining price tendency, although the net changes
tor the week in the active issues were not very
The foreign exchange market advanced sharp
ly during the week, as a consequence of the de
mand for bills with which to make. remittances
for the unusually large quantities of stock re
turned to this country by foreign holders, and
demand sterling rose almost to the gold export
point. No engagements of the metal were made,
however, and with the subsidence of the urgent
foreign selling the probability of an outward
movement in the immediate future is greatly di
minished. The bank statement of Saturday m
its large loan expansion showed the magnitude
of the repurchasing here of foreign holdings, for
the liquidation of domestic accounts must have
been extensive, a movement naturally working
reduction in the loan item. The surplus re
serve decreased $7,500,000 last week, but is still
well above $30,000,000. a total so large as to as
sure continuance of money market ease, even if
a fairly large gold export movement should de
velop, especially as the demands from the in
terior for crop moving purposes are this season,
owing to the unusually heavy reserves of cash
held by the banks of the interior, much smaller
than ordinarily at this season. Moreover, with
the quieting of the alarm over the complications
arising out of the situation developed in the
Balkans, and with the finding of a peaceful so
lution for those complications, it may be as
sumed that Europe will soon become again a
buyer of American stocks, in view of the prom
ising outlook In this country and the multiplying
indications that trade and industry are reviv
ing.
Very much depends upon the result of the
election for President, for there cannot be rapid
and widespread improvement without as its an
tecedent the full restoration of confidence, and
the reports from bo many quarters of large or
ders being placed to be executed only if Mr.
Taft shall be elected President furnish only one
of the indications of the Judgment of business
men the country over that Mr. Taffs election
will mark the re-establishment of confidence
and its resulting prosperity and that Mr. Bryan's
success would not. The thoroughly satisfactory
crop prospect, as shown in the government re
port last week, is combining with the general
expectation of Republican victory in November
to quicken business and industry; for a wheat
crop of excellent quality and nearly 30.000.000
bushels larger than IPO7. and a corn crop 70,
000.000 bushels above the Indication for October
last year, with other crops also running well
above the 1907 figures, will add tremendously
to the wealth of the United States, providing
fresh capital for a development which in magni
tude will surpass what has been seen in the
past
Trad" reports covering the country indicate a
general tendency toward sustained, if slow, Im
provement in business, and note in certain lines
the receipt of orders for future delivery, in de
cided contrast to the hand-to-mouth buying
which for many months has been the common
rule. Especial relative activity Is noted in the
building trade, which is benefiting by the ability
of builders to place mortgages at advantageous:
rates, their extending operations being felt in
the steel and lumber Industries. Here. too. how
ever, many contracts are being deferred until
after the election. In the steel industry prices
are steady, and the production of pig iron Is
gradually increasing. Bank clearings are be
coming larger in volume, a sure, index of ex
panding activity. Railroads are getting more
traffic, as is seen by the further decrease of
pearly 40.000 In th»> number of idle freight cars in
th" fortnight ended with September 30; the num
ber now being only 133.792. against 413.605 at the
close of April. Railroad gross earnings also are
on the upward grade, and the total earnings of
twenty-five representative roads for the fourth
we»»k of September were only 2.21 per cent un
der those for the corresponding period In 1907,
the smallest decrease for any week this year.
The substitution of Kuhn. Loeb" & Co. for
Spf-yer & Co. as the bankers of the Rock Island
system is an occurrence c,f first rate Importance,
for Kuhn. Loeb & Co., as the bankers of the
Harriman system and for years intimately iden
tified with the railroad activities and policies of
Mr. Harriman. would not have undertaken, and
probably would not have been asked to under
take, the financing of the 'Frisco's maturing $",
125.000 notes without the knowledge and the
co-operation of the Union Pacific's head. The
'Frisco has other large obligations maturing
soon, but no doubt is anywhere expressed that
they will be easily taken care of by the new in
terests, who are, it is now learned, to act as
bankers also for the Rock Island, which controls
the 'Frisco. Since the Rock Island party a few
years ago quietly and cleverly secured control
of the Chicago & Alton, then included in the
Union Pacific system, there has been enmity he
tween the powerful groups of capitalists con
trolling the two systems. There is now peace,
a peace which finds Mr. Harriman an Influential
figure in the Rock Island, as he had previously
become in the Erie and in the Gould systems
through the same means, coming to the aid of a
distressed property. A new method lias taken
the place of the otdtime buying into the stock
of v road In the councils of which it was deemed
desirable by the purchaser to have a voice; but
ur.tl^r th<» new system, as under the old, the re-
I suit attained Is the same — the extension of the
I Harrlman sphere of influence, now enormous.
! but likely to see still further development.

THE PETROLEUM FIELDS.
Th« drouth which prevailed throughout Sep
tember had no material effect upon the develop
ment? in the various old fields. While It is true
that the supply of v.-ater in certain sections was
practically cut off. thus curtailing field work, still
the general results have been satisfactory. Ac
cording to "The Oil City Derrick." the total num
ber of wells completed in all fields in September
was 1,557. with a new production of 33.513 barrels.
Thin compares with total new wells completed in
August of 1,572. with a new production of 34.579
barrels, a decrease of 15 in those completed and a
decrease of "of. barrels in new production. Th«
Pennsylvania fleld3 showed 751 wells completed,
with a new "production of 6.286 barrda. This is a
pain of 63 wells completed and 1.049 barrels in new
production. In the Northwestern Ohio and Indiana
fields the new production amounted to 1.507 bar
rels, and west cf the Mississippi the new production
totalled 17.378 barrels. The new production in the
Illinois field was 7.844 barrels. Developments dur
ing the last w»ek have continued fairly active, but
the results nave been only ordinary. In the West
Virginia fields several new strikes have been made
in the Holiday's Cove pool In Brooke County, sev
eral new producers coming in with production rang
ing from 15 to 35 barrels a day. In the pa mo dis
trict the South Perm Oil Company has drilled it."
No. 1 and has a show for a good producer. During
the first twenty-foo* hours the well flowed 56 bar
rels. The production of this pool continues to fluct
uate, and the latest estimated output was LWfl
barrels a day. The production of the Pollansbe*
pool also continues to fall off, ;ind is now making
about 1,400 barrels, which compares with a total
production of about 3.000 barrels a day tliref
months ago. In the Ohio fields the Ohio Oil Com
pany is liiiildinß additional iron tankage near Find
lay, and it la reported thai many more bis stock
tanks will be eroicted before th^ work stnps. In th©--
Oklahoma fi^M dwtiopment work is being stimu
lated by Improved weather conditions, and more
1 work is expected to bo donf than ttiWe was last
winter. Keveral new producing wells were r<-port
-•I In this district during thr> week, one having nn
