IRON TRADE CONDITIONS.
"The Iron Trade Review" says:
The year If*)" ended in gloom. Wh^n the
last day of ISWS passed there was a feeling
of relief because tlie twelve months had
been full of suspense, but there was a dis
tinctly confident expectation that 1909 would
record much more satisfactory business
conditions than the two previous years.
This expectation has been fully justified, and
although a note of warning of the danger
of overproduction lias been occasionally
pounded, the country has shown its won
derful ability to consume the immense pro
duction of blast furnaces and mills. Keen
interest has been felt in the trade as to
how the blast furnace operators would
meet the announcement of the advance of
50 cents non-Bessemer ores. It soon de
veloped that while some consumers were
disposed to complain, others were not, and
nearly ail. with the exception of those of
the rta^J. were reedy to place their orders,
hence buying has been very heavy during
the last few days and several million tons
have been contracted for. Some indepen
dent interests have not announced their
position in regard to the ore situation, but
it Is believed that they will conform to the
recently announced prices.
Specifying against contracts expiring with
the year was very heavy and cancella
tions" made on account of failure to specify
were few. New business is not heavy and
contracting i* betas; done in a very con
servative way, conditions varying accord-
Ing to material, the character or order and
desirability of the business. Rail salPs this
■w^ek amounted to about 40,<j<>Q tons, of
which 30.000 tons were open hearth for the
Burlington. Negotiations involving consid
erable tonnage on rails were pending in the
Pitt=!.urg district. Severe weather condi
tion.- have interfered to a considerable ex
tent with operations at many plants during
the last week. The tonnage of i-heets and
tin plate entered for rollings last month
was extremely heavy, not having been
equalled since the final month of 1900.

FINANCIAL MARKET
CALL MONEY STRONG.
Stocks Doicn on Bear Pressure
and Public Selling.
Current stock market operations re
flect an absence of- aggressive buying
power, but willingness on the part of the
larger interests to take securities on con
cessions. Buying of this character was
reflected In the purchases made on the
decline in yesterday's market, which in
the first hour of business ran from 1 to
3 points, with the chief weakness in Rock
Island, the downward movement follow
ing a strong opening in the majority of
active ipfties. Heaviness in Rock Island
was based entirely on speculative con
siderations, including the theory that
much of the stock bought in the recent
sensational advance had been liquidated
and that the people behind the manipu
lation had retired from the market with
substantial losses: also the theory, which
might better have been called a fact,
that the issue was selling well above its
actual worth and was a good short sale
at prevailing quotations. For the same
reason some people believe the entire
market should be sold, but In operating
on this idea it may be. well to bear in
mind that stocks, outside- of a good sized
public commission house account, are
in extremely strong hands, and that so
far there has been no indication of ex
tensive distribution by the chief interests
in the Street. At the close of the second
hour Rock Island showed a loss of 3
points from its opening, while American
Smelting, Consolidated Gas, Reading,
Southern Pacific, fnion Pacific and
United States Steel were down from 1 to
1% points.
Declines in the afternoon ran from 2
to 7 points in the leading stocks, Rock
Island, on enormous dealings, selling un
der 49, compared with 81, the high price
recorded in the manipulation of Monday,
December 27. 1909. Sales of this issue
in the last two hours of business were
accompanied by a report that leading in
terests in the Rock Island property had
agreed to disagree on important matters
affecting the management of the road,
the origin of the rumor, however, being
too doubtful to impress well Informed
observers. The attack on prices in the
general list was helped by traders' "in
formation" that big men were selling
stocks, but from Information received by
The Tribune stocks were bought on the
decline by banking houses for the ac
count of the thief capitalists in the
; Street, their purchases including a large
I amount of stock thrown on th«- market
[ by public traders who were frightened
by the weakness In Rock Island and
other issu* s.
The selling movement was not a novel
development of a' market filled with stop
loss orders and overburdened with weak
bull accounts. Final prices wore only a
trifle above the lowest of the day, with
the heaviest loss in Rock Island, which
i n<i''<l 7V« under Tuesday's last quota
tions; Amalgamated Copper, American
Sm«lters, Atchlson, Consolidated Gas,
Reading. Union Pacific, Wabash pre
ferred and United States Steel. No ac
tion lias been taken by the directors of
the Rock Island regarding a dividend
payment on the preferred stock, but it
is understood that if traffic continues to
improve holders of the issue will receive
a payment in the course of the current
year. The fact that the directors at
their meeting on Tuesday did not declare
a dividend was used as an argument by
bear traders for lower prices in yester
day's operations, though it was pretty
well known that a dividend at this par
ticular time was out of the question.
Rock Island has been overbulled. The
issue probably is now seeking its normal
level.
Call money opened at 7 per cent and
touched 8 per cent, ruling at 7 per cent,
with indications pointing to lower though

not easy rates in the course of the next
fortnight. The January interest and
dividend funds are returning to the
banks, and so far in the current week
the Clearing House institutions have
gained on their operations with the Suft-
Treasury, the latter movement, how
ever, having been offset by engage
ments of gold for South America and
shipments of currency to Chicago, where
exchange on New York is at a discount,
as compared with a premium a week
ago. Sterling exchange was strong yes
terday, demand advancing 30 points as
a consequence of a scarcity of bills, and
an active demand for remittance. The
position of the market indicates a con
siderable short interest, which appar
ently is being covered through cables,
which for prompt delivery are up 35
points from Tuesday's closing and about
15 points higher for next Saturday and
Monday. Exchange is at the point that
permits London to settle obligations in
South America by gold exports from this
centre, as reflected in engagements in
the current week of $1,250,000 lor ship
ment to Brazil. In spite of the receipts
of new gold from the mines in the last
year gold coin and gold certificates in
circulation show a substantial decline
as a result of the heavy shipments of the
metal to Europe and South America, a
net gain in the actual amount of money
in circulation, according to the federal
Treasury figures as of January 1 of $89,
838.835, having been due to the increase
in our bond secured national bank notes

OUTSIDE SECURITIES.
After- a generally steady opening:, with
trading on a fair scale, the market for
outside securities developed decided weak
ness almost throughout the list, with losses
from a pmall fraction to about 2 points.
while in some of the higher priced special
ties the declines extended to about 5
points. ' In one. or two of the copper stocks,
however, continued inside buying held
prices at about the highest level. This
was especially so in Kerr Lake and Con
solidated Arizona Smelting, which main
tained a strong tone- on renewed activity.
Miami. Greene-Cananea. Boston Glroux
and Nevada Consolidated were weak.
United Copper and British "Columbia de
veloped some strength on more animation.
Glla fell 2 points. The industrial list was
easier, especially Standard Oil. which ran
off 5 points on fairly large offerings.
American Tobacco was lower in the bid.
Northern Securities stubs were up about
4 points." Bonds were quiet and somewhat
easier in sympathy with the balance of the
list.

FOREIGN FINANCIAL.
London, Jan. s.— Consols closed 1-15 lower
at sl >: » for money, and $2 13-16 for account.
Anaconda was unchanged at DHL Cana
dian Pacific *4 higher at l!>6-\, Grand Trunk
\* lower at 21%.
Money was in better supply, with the re
lease of dividends, and discount rates were
firm on the foreign gold demand.
On the Stock Kxchange. although the
absence of public support caused some dis
appointment, the markets were fairly good.
Consols, In which the settlement was con
cluded, recovered an early loss, and dla-
md shares. Kaffirs and foreign bonds,
especially Hraz Han and Japanese, were
firm and dearer Copper shares hardened
early in sympathy with Americans, but
closed easy. x
American securities had a good opening,
prices advancing from l 4l 4 to a full po'nt
over parity, following the recovery In Wall
Street yesterday. Profit - taking later
caused recessions, and the market tecame
irregular, la the afternoon Wall Street
offered stock and caused a setback,
especially in Southern Pacific. Union Paci
fic and United States- Steel, while Rock
island fell two points. ;.>»vitsvtlle and
Nashville and Krie shares, on the other
band, remained firm. Prices generally
closed easy. v '
