FINANCIAL MARKET
Stocks Weii Above the Low
Quotations of the Year.
_ market prices arc now quoted
well above tbo low levels of the year, in
many cases gains of from 6 to 12 points
being shown, but in spite of this Im
provement there is no more apparent
iWmillHl***** on the part of the public to
take an active position on the null side
ol Bpecutotton than there was when bar
pain figures were recorded. Outsiders
quite often are attracted to the market
after priors have recovered to some ex
tent from periods of depression, but in
the i 'resent case they evince no liking
for Wall Streets wares, notwithstanding
bullish advice from commission houses
and indications that liquidation has
ceased for the time at least, although
some buying for cash is reported.
Doubtless there are operators who are
waiting for a new low point, but if such
a level should be reached the same oper
ators will not know it. nor will any one
else until subsequent records are studied.
Some people by chance catch the low
point of a bear movement, and there are
not a few speculators who believe that
buyers of stocks on July 26 secured their
lines at the lowest figures that will be
reported in the current year; while, on
the other hand, there are just as many
market followers who believe that
liquidation will be resumed and that
quotations will yet move under the poor
est so far recorded.
There are two distinctly divergent
opinions in Wan Street regarding the
future of the stock market, and the pub
lic trader who makes up his mind to
deal in stocks on a small margin jus:
now and does not know whether to go
short or long may as well let the toss of
a coin govern his movements, as he is.
likely to lose no matter which side of
the account he follows. Public traders
seldom make money in Wall Street when
they deal on borrowed money, chiefly
■because they buy more than their credit
warrants and because they have not the
nerve to maintain their position when
prices go against them, even if they arc
amply supplied with funds, and as a
consequence the outsider who goes into
the present extremely uncertain market
as a margin trader should provide his
family with a good sized insurance
protection. Buying for cash is a dif
ferent matter. At prevailing quotations
solid dividend paying stocks may be
bought to return a most satisfactory in
come yield, and the buyer need not
worry over his purchase if price move
ments should go to a lower level. Most
stocks are selling under a normal level,
and their prices therefore will not go to
a permanently lower basis; and event
ually quotations will rule many points
in advance of the prevailing range.
It docs not appear that the prices of
railway mortgage issues will decline to
any degree from the current level. Rail
road bonds are a safe purchase at these
lignres, while the same thing may be
said of many industrial and public util
ity securities, especially bonds of well
established gas companies. There are
many industrial and public service bonds
that return from 4' 2 to 5% per cent at
present quotations, as, for Instance, La
clede Gas first ss, New Yo*rk Telephone
first ad general mortgage 4%5, United
States Steel Pinking fund os, American
Agricultural first convertibles, Interbor
ough Rapid Transit i ss. .Virginia-Caro
lina Chemical first os. Central Leather
first lien ss, American Tobacco 4s and
International Steam Pump first f»s.
Among the attractive railroad mortgage
securities that yield more than 4 per
cent and as high as f»i_ per cent may be
mentioned Missouri, Kansas & Texas 4s,
Reading general 4n, Norfolk & Western
convertible- 4s. Union Pacific first and
refunding 4s, New Haven convertible Gs,
Chesapeake & Ohio general 4%5, Bur
lington joint 4s. Delaware & Hudson
convertible 4s, Pennsylvania convertible
?,U,s, Southern Railway first Ds, St.
Louis & San Francisco refunding 4s, .
Kansas City Southern refunding f»s and
Kansas City, Fort Scott &. Memphis re
funding 4s. The bond market is well
worth the attention of people who have
Idle funds on hand.
The railroads are not poverty stricken,
but higher freight rates would be a boon
in these days of increasing operating
costs. Gross earnings are heavy, but
net returns are beginning to make dis
appointing comparisons with preceding
years, though the declining tendency
does not imperil, at the present at least,
the dividends of our chief companies.
Borne of the smaller roads, however,
may be compelled to reduce dividends,
because they cannot economize further
in expenses without injuring the physi
cal condition of their properties. As a
matter at fact, there are not many direc
tions in which any railroad can econ
omize just now. They are forced to
maintain Ugh wage schedules, the cost
of maintenance and way is heavy be
cause of the increased cost of materials
and labor and the necessity of large ex
penditures Incident to the enlargement
of traffic while new rolling stock, which
is quoted higher than ever before,, con
stantly must be purchased, to say noth
ing of ?28 a ton rails, upon which, in
spite of their great weight and fine qual
ity, the wear and tear Is terrific. The
railroads soon will be compelled to spend
more on equipment and rails, and they
believe that in view of the, fact that
rates have been declining for ten years,
while in the same time the cost of every
thing that enters the expense account of
th* transportation companies has been
advancing, they are entitled to the In
dorsement by the Interstate Commerce
Commission of proposed new freight
charges.
Wall Street feels better over the cop
per market outlook. It Is nut alarmed
.... the steel trade is going through
a period .■ reaction, as reflected in the
decrease in July of the United States
Steel Corporation's unfilled tonnage,
and It is taking a more hopeful view of
the outcome of the year's harvests. The
spring wheat crop will make an ex
tremely poor yield, but winter wheat's
:eital will be larger than expected, while
unless there is material deterioration in
the condition of corn in the rest of the
season a crop not far from .'5.000.000,000
bushels will be gathered. Of oats there
apparently will be an abundance.
Money on call is easy, and likely to re
main so for some time to come. Time
funds and commercial paper are inac
tive, and the banks are not disposed to
make concessions In rates, in spite of
the large reserves reported. Sterling ex
change is less in favor of gold imports
than recently recorded, but local bank
ers nevertheless secured a large propor
tion of l:' week's South African gold
offered in the open London market.

INSURANCE CERTIFICATES
Lloyds Associations Apply for Author
ity to Do Business in This State.
Albany, Aug. 14.— Tt -was announced at
the State Insurance L^parrment to-day
that, pursuant to the. new law vesting the
department with power over Lloyds in
surance associations, twenty organizations
of this character— -which are practically
partnerships made up of a large number of
individuals and operating through an at
torney-in-faci. who mutually agree to be
come responsible for the loss due to rire or
other causes — had made applications fo*
certificates of authority permitting them
to do business In this state after January
1, 1911. Three other associations of a simi
lar kind, but -which are known as inter
insurers, have also applied for like author
ity.
'The following: associations." «ays a
statement issued by the State Insurance
Department, "have not "j^ade application
and, after this year, wtD not be authorized
to do business in New York: International
Fire Office of Ne?/ York City, Fidelity In
surance Association and I'nion Underwrit
ers. The new lav* is expected to put an
end to numerous losses due to irresponsible
underwriters and illegal organisms. The
Uoyda thus t<> In authorized should not be
confounded with alien Lloyds, such as that
which doe? business undor the name of
Lloyds, Ijondon. citizens of New York who
accept the policies of any o:' the syndi
cate- of underwriters operating under this
name do so at their peril In case of loss."
