Week of Special Activity-?
Broader Market?Higher
Another week has paaaed and only a
niemory of events remalns to t-ast the
shadow of hypothesis <m which tO baaa
predictions of future stock market op
rrations. It ls truo that by rotnpnri
BOn tho actlon of the market during the
week Just ended has been remarkahle,
as it has reached a wider ran^e. trans
actloaa have been on a broaBer sc.-de
and several Issues have cstablisheri new
high rerords. The week will also be
individualized among the succession of
weeks in the stock market ns ,.hr flrst
nne tbM year in which the atandard
railroads and industrials assumed ag
gressive leaderslilp and carrled price
levels to dlstinctly higher elevations.
whlle some of the formrr epoclalttea
whlch had been the hope of the bnll
side at times became taffgaftJUt and
sagged from their previous hign polnts.
Not only has the market in its trading
relationship and specnlatlve opporttml
ties been attractive to the optimlstlc
side of Wall Street followlng. bat It
has strensthened the faith of the ln
terests in and allled to Wali Btreet to a
degree of confldenee covering tlie fun
damentals which are the real BOPPOtt
of the market's upward movement.
During the former weeks for many
months there has been the ever pres
ent query, "Why does not the stock
market discount coming prosperity?"
Thls lnterrogatlon was followed by an?
other ln close conjunctlon: "Are we
really approaching a period of pro
nounced prosperity, or will it j rcve to
be slmply a spurt of better times, to
soon die out and, like the promlsed re
covery in 1908, leave ua with the 1m
pression that we had been chasing
ralnbowa?" In the absenco of any
sound reasoning to the contrary, we
were obliged to accept the week after
week of favorable and continuoualy
optlmiftic reporta of the commercial
agenclcj, tho daily developing Fteel and
lron trade, which has now reached re
markable flgures, and a volume of
buslness taklng the output of the com
bined mills well Into 1913. Tho re
por..s from all points of the cotnpass in
tht Unlted States confirm more em
phatlcally aa the weeks roll on that
the country not only has been enterlng
on a new era of prosperous times, but
lt ls now forcihly impressed on the
buslness and flnancial representatlves
who had remalned ln a state of de
batnble doubt that we are already ln
the promlsed land of fortune and
plenty, and have been for some time.
We have passed through the opening
portals and are well within the broad
expanse of commerce and indintry, the
recordH of which berrtrar all previous
annals. For quite a period prlor to last
week the stock market had shown lm
pulsea, but it displayed a lack of lead
ership agpressiveness to Inspire a fol
lowing, ao ln a desultory aort of a way
it drlfted on, with Just enough spirlt to
supKest a tuillsh undertone, but not
sufliclently strong to kindle en'.husiasm
and cause a general advance ln the en
tire Bat of logical market leadera. Like
a suddenly dlscovered opportunity or a
danger but recently realized, the -veek
opened with a broadenlng tendency of
the market, which grew more pro
nounced on Tuesday, and on Wednes
day had spread throughout the 11st of
standard issues and others, many of
which had scarcely been dealt ln dur?
ing 1911'. It was when the market had
reached lts lmportant trading positlon
and a genuine bull market was fore
told by Ita activity and aupport that
the banks put a check on the advance
movement by ralslng the rall money
rate to 7 per cent, the highest price for
call money slnce 1910. But the mar?
ket recovered, as ao many stlmulating
factors crowded Into the latter end of
the week that there was developed a
market energy whlch largely overbal
anced the stiffer money rates and as
alsted the bulla ln keeplng prices on an
upper tenalon, though at times the
bears aucceeded ln brlnglng about re
actlona Tho lon,r apells of lnactlvlty
which marked the daily routino of
trading in tho weeka prlor were not ex
perlenced last week, and each day the
broader acopo of trading embraced new
issues formeriy lncluded ln tho lnactiv?
'1st. The Auguat siatementa of rail?
roads published during the week have
changed the feeling of despondenoy re
garding the rallroad situation due to
limited freight traflie to a cheerfulness
and a reviving confidence in the future
success of railroads generally through?
out the country. Gold importations en
gaged up to Friday totaled $4,250,000,
and this ?um, with foreign exchange
rates forecasting further ahipruenta to
the Unlted States, offer an assurance
of replenishmeni of the depletec! re
serves which for many weeks huve
been reported by the New Ycrk banks.
There will be a large demand for
mon<jy with the expansion of businesa
and commercial requiroments will bo
greater, but the natlon's economlc posi?
tlon has been so carefully atudied by
the big bunklng interests both Kast
iuid Waat that, except for short inter
rnptlona of sudden abnormal requlre
nient-}, the even tenor of the money
market appeurs to be wel] provided for.
In any event of an unlooked 'or strin
gen<y the Trea.-ury Dopnrtmuit may
be depended on for liberal support.
This is aot the time to allow oreeping
Bhadoara of distrust and fear to liinturb
the pleasant picture of a bright future.
We have had several years of gloom;
lt ls now time to cast asldo luijubrioiM
gloom and be glad.

In nn artlcle denling with the present

Take the present situatlon. If we had
an orannlzatlon and a Natlonal Hesct ve
Ansoclatlon, with branches, aa iroposcd
hy the Monetary romml!?slon. lanka In
the Interior, where actual money was
needed to move the crops, would slmplv
send to the branch of the Reserve Asso
clatlon In thelr vlclnlty enotigh of the
buslness papaf prevlously dlscounted hy
tliem to furnish them with funds. and the
branch would lmmediately forward to
them, free of charge, an ?H|tilvalent
iimount in Reserve Aasoclatlon bank
notea, whlch could be sent into the coun?
try for uae ln movlng the crop. All
thls would make no demand upon the
actual rescrves held by the banks them
sclves or held ln the great money centrcs.
When the crop movement was over.
these banknotes would bo returned to
the Reserve Assoclation for redemptlon
and thelr payment would be provlded for
by the collectlon of the buslness notes
dlscounted by the Interior bank, whlch
notes would then have cotne due and
been paid. The whole operation of mov?
lng the crop, entalling the use of mllllons
of dollara of actual money, would have
been perfected without ructlon and with?
out calllng upon the New York and Chi
cago and St. l.ouls banks for one dollar
of thtMr rcserves, whlch would remaln
undlsturbed aa a basts for other buslness
Aa It is now, theae reaervea at the
moaey ccntres form the basla for four
tlmea the amount ln loana, whlch must
be called ln (and which are belng called

money out into the Weat and South to
