Tells of Methods of P: onioier- of
Insurance Companies.
Albany. Oct. 6.— Superintendent Hotch-
Idss of the State Insurance Department
to-day announced that the investigation
of corporations organized for the purpose
of promoting: Insurance companies, which
during the last three months has been
actively prosecuted by the department,
was row practically completed. This in
vestigation was due to an amendment of
the insurance law. made on the recom
mendation of the department, which went
into effect on July 1 last. By it, holding
and promoting companies which intended
ultimately to form or control insurance
companies are subject to examination in
the same way that yisurance corporations
heretofore have been.
This amendment was intended to check.
If possible. in New York a flood of irre
sponsible insurance corporations like
those during the last three or four years
developed by promotion methods in the
middle Western. Southern and Pacific
The laws of New York do not permit .in
insurance company to begin business un
til It) capital stock is paid In in cash. It
roust also have a surplus— likewise paid
in In cash— equal to £0 per cent of Its cap
ital stock. This is not so in many other
states, and, consequently, insurance- pro
motions have been much easier elsewhere.
This probably also explains why, In many
of th" promotions investigated, there is
a holding company, the purpose of which
is to accumulate the cash, and an insur
ance company, which has a name, by
laws and oncers, but which has as yet
received r.o authority to transact the bus
iness of insurance.
j The investigation makes It clear that the
i promoter and his satellites, the stock sales
men, almost immediately take from 30 to 60
j per cent of the money subscribed by the
investor: tbat the means employed in se
curing the subscription are, of necessity,
;at times— in fact, in Bane companies, fre
quently — characterized by misrepresenta
tion both as to the profits of existing com
panies and as to the probability of. profit In
the promoting company, and that, if th«
plan ultimately succeeds, the investor finds
himself but a minute factor of a company
: usually controlled by the man who con
ceived ft. who la, In most cases, enly too
■willing to sell out that control to the high
est bidder, no matter what be the hitter's
Integrity or Insurance experience.
In view of the facts developed in this
Investigation, the New York Insurance De
partment baa since July 1 refused to ad
rait to do business in this slate any com
pany promoted by the means above Indi
cated, and will continue so to do unless it
jls satisfied that the management of such
; company is reliable and expert from an in
surance standpoint and that Its stockhold
. en have been definitely informed that they
and not the company paid the usually
larjre commission and promotion expenses
Incident to such methods. It i? thought
that by excluding: those thus tainted in
their organization much can be done tow
ard preventing' similar promotions In the
Holders of Columbus and Hocking
Stock and Bonds Agree to Plan.
The second mortgage bond holders of the
Col::nibus and Hocking Coal and Iron Com
pany, it was announced yesterday, have
unanimously assented to the modified re
organization plan recently formulated by
the reorganization committee. A large ma
jority of the holders of first mortgage
bonds .have also assented to the plan, and
upv.ard of J.'.COO out of a total of 70.00)
shares of common stock have been de
posited and arrangements have been per
fecied by the reorganization committee to
underwrite the assessment on any stock
not deposited within (be time limit, which
is October 2?.
The modified plan provides that both the
Brat and second mortgage bond holders are
to receive 73 per cent in new first mort
gage bonds and DO per cent in new common,
stock in exchange for their present hold
ing?. The holders of the present preferred
and common stock who pay the assessment
of 510 ■ share xru* receive par in new first
mortgage bonds to the amount of the.
money they pay a, and in addition the pre
ferred stock holders will receive an amount
of nesv common stock equal to their pres
ent holdings and the common stock holders
will receive SO per cent of their present
holdings in new common stock.

FOREIGN TRADING.— Foreign houses

ord of failures, as r^porttd to R. G. Dun & j
Co. for nine months of ISIO. reveals, in
1 some degree, the effects of the trade re
j cession Which ha? been in progress during
most of the year, but otherwise exhibits :
no especially abnormal feature. There were
fe.iTtt failures In the last nine months, as
compared with 9.666 In 1500: 11.946 In 1808.
£.o*o in 19*77. 7.5117 in 1901 8,80*) in 1905 and
9.1i3 in 19U4. The number of defaults was.
therefore, less than Ii 1903 and IMS. but |
greater tban in any other of the years ;
I named. The total liabilities of tin last
nine months amounted to *' 5-1,417, 3C4, as
compared with O16.12&871 in 1903; 5179.677.523
In ISOi, 8H.(86»34S in IS>)7. $8i.t>«.237 in 1906.
$75.:21.C:S in 190.* and 5111.0.205 in IW». It .
' thus appears that while the number of
failures icr the nine months was less than
in 29035, the aggregate liabilities was much
greater. \

CANADIAN PAClFlC— Referring to the
Increase from 6 por cent to 7 per cent in I
the dividend rate on the common nock,
which the Canadian Pacinc Railway made •
last August, and the l per cent dividend
out of interest on land sale proceeds, the
president of the company in bis report to
th«* stockholders says:
"Your directors are aware of the feeling
among the stockholders t|*at. jaJdn« into
account ... me and financial position
of tin- company, this is ■ excel sufficient;
and if last year's returns bts taken as a
bapia, that feeling is not without reason
able foundation. But we must not lose
sight of Lb« fact that conditions mi not
always be go favorable; that we may have
lean years, and that Ii fuch a contingency
a large cash reserve will be a source of
convenience and strength. Apart from
your curplu«. you have extraneous assets
and deftrred payments, or land mortgages;
cash fjrocf;»Kls of land sales and other items
of liHe character la process of realization
that may be roujrhly estimated at p. 000.000.
without taking into account unsold lands.
In ordinal course, this amount should be
Substantially augmented within the next
e "Th«T i be st Interests of the company win
be subserved bf keeping Intact a. consider
able portion cf these assets, instead of re
sorting to the policy known as "melon cut
ting,- which is not always a boon to the
beneficiary At the same time, there is
every reason why stockholders should ex-
Pect such advantages in the way of Income
from their assets without encroaching on
the principal, and the directors will deter
mine, within the current year, how this can
best be brought about.

Chicago, Oct. 6. — Rapidly seesawing prices for
wheat to-day showed the nervous, mixed condition
of traders regarding the Argentine crop. Because
the latest cablo dispatch from Rosario seemed to
imply no eerlous fresh damage. If any had b^en
actually done, the market closed weak %@%o
below last night's level. The end of the day left
corn **c to %B)%C town and oats He. Hog
products finished unchanged to 17 toe higher.
Wheat business Increased in vo!tt:*e to-day, but
was by no means large. Indeed, some of yester
day's buyers lost confidence because of lack of
sustained demand or increased popular Interest.
1 Much of the Argentina news was favorable to
the bear Bide; other messages were the reverse.
All dispatches conceded that dry weather con
tinued, but a number asserted fears of frost, and
simultaneously other correspondents said it was
too hot. The contradictory reports kept specula
tors fuesstOC In an uncomfortably lively man
ner. Meanwhile export trade from this country
was practically non-existent and. owiaaj to ab
sence of notable domestic demand, stocks piled
up at a lit IT faster rate than a year ago.
Considerable interest wan taken In a crop ex
pert's astlmasn putting tha total yield of wheat
In the United States at 684.000.000 bushels, against
7.17.0«.f,0<)0 bushels last rear. The effect on the
market, However, was only temporary. December
ranged from OSHc to 99H099%e and closed He
down at 9S^G'99'->ic. The return of fine weather
had a bearish eKe^t on corn, i^o did predictions
that government figures would place the crop at
3,000,000,000 bushels. On the other hand, there
was a better shipping call. December fluctuated
between 49% c and 50\c, closing weak at 49%@
4!>'ie, a net loss of *ic. An expert opinion that
the oats yield will total I.OWJ.OUU.UOO bushels, the
largest on record, had a depressing outcome on
Eriee* for the cereal. December, after varying
etwpen S24fco32s>fi and 3.14 c. finished He off
at 32 7 ic Shorts and packers were buyers of
provisions. In consequence the market was firm
and pork at the wind-up was unchanged to 10c
higher, lard 2Vjc to 15®174c dearer and ribs at
an advance of "4210 c. Rang* of prices:

GRAIN— WHEAT The wheat market was
nervous and Irregular during the day. values
making some quick changes within a range
of about le a bushel. It seemed to be the
general opinion early that shorts had covered,
and as the news regarding the domestic cash
situation was rather bearish, prices declined
about lc a bushel under selling by several
prominent commission houses. In the early
afternoon there was a quick rally to above
the previous close on covering by early buyers.
but late In the day values were again weak
under renewed liquidation, and flaal prices
were at the low of the day. represent a
net decline of *»o?ic. The Liverpool market
was firm, although values there did not show
a full response to our firmness of Wednesday
afternoon. Broomhall estimated Argentine

drop in temperattrr* 33 aroused apprehensions
of frost following the storm, created an active
buying movement in the cotton market this
morning, and while the official forecast did not
bear out the frost Idea, demand was later stimu
lated by Liverpool cables reporting that th«
labor troubles la Lancashire had been settled
and that work in the mills would be resumed i
on Monday. Prices recovered practically ail of I
their recent lisa, and while there were moderate '
reactions from the best in th« late trading, tha

no official, detailed -weather reports confirmed
tha early claims of heavy rainfall, and precipita
tion at one point In the Memphis district was
over eight inches, but aside from the possibility J
that the storms were severe enough In some
localities to beat out rrpen cottca the general
opinion here was tnat the disturbance may
have lowered the grade of open cotton and de
layed picking to some extent, but otherwise
Justified very little change In views as to the
probable size of the crop. The Improvement la
th* Manchester situation and numerous reports
of a more active demand for spots In the in
terior markets of the South appeared to be the
more influential factors after the Crst rush of
covering on the weather news, and trade buying
of contracts was at least partly responsible for
the steady ruling of prices la the face of con
siderable realizing during the late trading.
