Securities and Money
Prices Rise Sharply
On Court Decision
And Labor Outlook
Market operators, faced with a sus?
pension of business for three days,
took an optimistic view of the pros?
pects for security values yesterday and
bid up the prices of railroad and in?
dustrial stocks with zest. The feeling
in Wall Street was that th? labor situ?
ation was getting out of the alarm?
ing stage, and fears of industrial un
settlement no longer checked the im?
pulse t>f traders to attain higher price
levels.
The change in the speculative at?
mosph?re was not attributable solely
to psychological conditions, for there
were definite items in the news of the
day which had a real relation to the
movement of quotations. Reports from
various centres indicated that proba?
bility of a general railroad ticup in
the near future was diminishing.
Those who trade in stocks were gen?
erally encouraged by the notification
of Director General Hines to railway
strikers in California that further ef?
forts to interfere with railroad service
would being prompt punishment. This
v.as especially cheerful to market oper?
ators, inasmuch as the leaders of the
shopmen had on Thursday voted to
recommend the acceptance of President
Wilson's compromise proposals.
Furthermore, those who were wor?
ried over the strike threats found rea
?oii for optimism in the repeated in?
timations that the Steel Corporation
officials were confident that organized
labor was not strong enough in the in?
dustry to cause a cessation of activity.
Steel common, which sold ex-dividend
yesterday, nevertheless gained 2M
points.
Wall Street received a pleasant sur?
prise in dispatches from Los Angeles
reporting that the Federal District
Court at Los Angeles had rendered a
decision in favor of the Southern Pacific
Railway in the oil land suits, which'
have been in the courts since 1914.
Although selling ex-dividend, Southern
Pacific sold up T's points, and the
other oil securities similarly enhanced
in value. At the peak oil stocks were;
from :; to 12 points higher.
Although not as active as the indus-'
trial stocks, rails also showed improve- :
merit. Led by Crucible, in which the
short ?ntcre '.. is being badly harassed,
the steel stocks were consistent gain?
ers. The most spectacular movement
of the day was that of Cuban-Ameri?
can Sugar, which rose 2'?~/a points on
the expectations of large profits as a
result of the sugar scarcity.
Transactions yesterday were slightly
less than 900,000 shares, and 239 dif?
ferent kinds of stocks were traded in.
The bond market again was inactive.
Kails were irregular, except for the
transcontinental, and Liberty bonds
again receded slightly. Foreign bonds
were firm.

Rates on London, Paris and Rome
were weaker yesterday, and observers
in several instances reiterated that the
recovery of the previous few days had
been but a flurry in the mar' et. The
fundamental condition of one-sided
trade still prevails and remains the
main cause of the depreciation of the
pound, the franc and the lira.

Adams Express Company
Reports Heavy Deficit
Los? on Operation for 18
Months Was $7,89.5,869;
Caused Reviewed
A statement of the income account
of the Adams Express Company cover?
ing the eighteen months ended June
30, 1918, shows' a net deficil for that
pei iod of $7,895,869. The last pn C
ing report covering the twelve months
ended December 31, 1917, exhibited a
deficit of $1,884,5-13.
Reviewing operations, William M.
Barrett, president, said that the year
1917 was unprofitable for l te company
because of the great congestion on
railroad lines over which it operated.
Substantially 70 per cent of . busi?
ness, Mr. Barrett added, was c: ?? I
on this zone in which the rates pre?
scribed were the lowest and the ex?
pense of conducting the express bu ;
ness the highest.
Mr. Barrett said that his report had
been delayed in the hope that he could
make some definite statement concern
ing the value of the stock of the Amer?
ican Railway Express Company, wh ch
took over the business of the express
companies on January 1. 1918.
"The new company," he added, "has
lost money during each month of its
operation, and recently the Director
General directed that the wages of all
employer, of the American Railwaj Ex?
press Company should be increased,
which will still further increase the
losses. Under the agreement mad?.
with the Director General, the latter
assumes any !uss in operation while the
contract is in force, but no provision
has yet been made for making any
allowance to the new company for the
; use of the property in the express
business.
"The net amount of stock in Airier
! ?can Railway Express Company, which
'this association will receive on account
? of the assets turned (.ver by ?1 and by
! the Southern Express Company is
I $6,027,929 par value of the stock. 'This
i is the amount of stock remaining after
'deducting the shares of stock of the
'? new express company, which this asso?
ciation agreed to transfer and assign
1 to the Director General in settlement
j of the claims made by him for railroad
' facilities and services furnished during
j the first six months of JIMS."
The Adams Express Company, Mr.
Barrett said, was operated at a severe
loss because of the existing war con?
ditions and because the railroads were
not able to furnish adequate facilities
for the transaction of the express
business.
Northern Pacific Reports
Bigger Earnings
The Northern Pacific Railroad re?
ports for the month of July gross
earnings of $8,679,755, contrasted with
$6,475,040 for the corresponding : I 1
a year ago. Operating expenses ab
i sorbed $6,155,716 of the total and $715,
264 was deducted !"? :? taxes, leaving a
railway operating income of $1,808,229,
I an increase of $505,129.

In Wall Street
Out for Foreign Business
The. absorption of the Scandinavian
Trust Company by the Liberty Na?
tional Bank waa explained to mean that
the latter institution couid set out ag?
gressively for foreign business, par?
ticularly in the Scandinavian coun?
tries The capital of the Liberty Na?
tional Bunk will be increased from $.,,
000 000 to $0,000,000. The capital of
the* Trust Company was $1,000,000 and
the 'lock will be exchangeable, Bhare
for share, for that of the Liberty .Na?
tional Bank, and the other $1,000,000
of the increase in the bank's capital
will b?l obtained throuch giving stock?
holder? of the bank the right to sub?
scribe to one share of new for every
three they now hold. The adjustment
will make the new stock worth $525 a
share, which is regarded as extrcmo:y
favorable to holders of Scandinavian
Trust Company stock, inasmuch as that
institution was organized as recently
as 1917. Offices of the Scandinavian
? Trust said that the demand for the
vacated quarters at 56 Broadway was
exceedingly great.
Lehigh Workers to Return
Tho whole trend of labor news yes
terday was interpreted as favorable to
the forces of stability. As a straw.
Wall Street men were much interested
in the report that the chairman of the
shopmen's committees in various cities
in which the Lehigh Railroad has shops
had unanimously voted that the men
should go back to work.
German Persistence -Again
With characteristic Teutonic thorough?
ness, agents of German financial and
govermental institutions have been
seeking credit in the United States
since restrictions against, trading with
the enemy were removed. Although
finding a lack of disposition to take
prompt action on the part of bankers,
they have energetically visited all po
tential lenders and have suggested
virtually every technique for financial
aid that i.s known to financiers. Yes?
terday it was reported that Germany
was sounding out bankers on the prop?
osition of selling Germany Treasury
bills of one. two arid three years' ma?
turity in this market.
Out of the Market
The market places in New York for
th" sale of securities and commodities
will be closed to-day, to-morrow and
Monday. Many operators who were
short covered yesterday to be out of
the market over the triple holiday, as
it was, developments over so pro?
tracted a suspension of trading might
pos ?bly lie important. Many leading
men of Wall Street turned the Labor
Day vacation into a four-day function
'??;. starting out to the country yester?
day. As a result, few important con
ferences were held during the day. and
outside of tin; markets, little was done.
S. 1'. Decision Misinterpreted
?? ?? ne selling in Southern Pacific was
nduced yesterday by a wire sent out
by a brokerage house stating that the
? . ' ;et1 led by the Federal Di strict
Court at Los Angeles was less impor?
tant than the oil land litigation pend?
ing in the United States Supreme
' 'ourt. This wa ? a bit of misii I
i ' t rece .'ed the att 3nt ion of the
company's officials. The acreage in
the ease now before tin Supreme
( our:. .' wa 3 . stated, involved o
anioi '. little of wh ch
.red to be oil producing. T ?? only
impoi anee a ttach % to its ttlem
. . ? either will or will not free
iv of the charge of fraud,
ch i also invoi' ed n the m >re im -
tant suit.
