Wheat closed '4 to IukIki- sur

The market opened hUher on the tables
and on expectation of a decrease In
world's shipments outside North America,
Sentiment was bullish when It appeir. d
that Northwestern reedpts had fallen
cifl. The BuenoH Ayres cot i espond.-nt of l-'.n-ley
Barrell 'o. cabled that weather
prosiects wem bad. There was some
profit taklliR. but fears of crop damage
bold the bears in check. Keceipts
of both spring and winter wheat at prim
ary points were smaller than last
year, with shlpmenta much lawr than
riH-clpts. Reports of export sales of l!ta.
ono bushels of hard wheal and some
Manitoba wheat weie. ri ported. These
sales were denied by some traders, who
hald hlda were out of line and that It was
Buffalo business.
Corn started hlRher on bad weather

The Modern Miller says: "Know has
fallen In tho wostirrn part of the winter
wheat belt and the continued mild
weather, with Indications of tho snow ex
tending eastward, has tended to relieve
much apprehension In regard to the lack
of snow protection. Thero was ample
rain or snow In the wheat belt, from
which there were complaints of lack of
lolsturn. Complaints of green uugi
proved to have been exaggerated."

Another rise has oscurr4d In tho Inter-borough-Metropolitan
stocks, nourished by
tho oft repeated rumor of a resumption
of the dividend on the preferred stock.
There Is to bo a meeting of tho directors
of the company next week and high hopes
are held that tho stockholders nro not
to be disappointed again. Perhaps the tips
on the Interborough have been worked
a little thin, or perhaps It is simply a side
light on tho tiresent 4emrtt nf tt,A ftit.en
1 lative element that there should havo been
less enthusiasm displayed than on previ
ous occasions. Tho tip has so far mads
good, but although predictions are even
inoro positive than they were In the past
the stock has not yet reached by several
points the level attained In August, for
instance. New Street, as usual, feels Itself
j satisfied In attributing the worst possible
motives ror a declaration of n dividend at
this time. The old argument always far
fetched that if a dividend Is declared It
will be with the design of making the bis
Issue, of Interborough ltapld Transit bonds
more attractive as they come to market.
A LenaT Snot.
To m"":' oplo Erie common Is some
thing of a mystery. Hero Is a stock which
has never paid a dividend. For many
years the property has never been In a
condition to make It even likely that a
dividend would be paid except In thu re
mote future. And yet Erie common has
consistently sold "out of line," that is
to say far above other iioti-tllvldend pay
ing stocks In Its class. Apparently, there
have always been peoplo here and abrpad
witling to buy Kile In tho belief that
Krles plus patience were a sure road to
wealth. Probably too, on numerous occa
sions In the past, just us at present, u
demand for Erie has sprung up seemingly
011 all sides from people who favor it
long shot when they speculate. But per
haps the figures havo never before Indi
cated so strongly that Krle was coming
Into Its Inheritance. By people who know
the Erie Ruilroatl Is now spoken of in
being In the position 'that Baltimore and
Ohio was Immediately following the te
organisation In 1509. The Erie lias shown
exceptional ability to get along dutlng the
past three years of lean time for the
railroads. When Its double hacking is
completed extraordinary things at e proph
esied for tho road In tho wuy of In
creased revenues. It may be btcause of
knowledge of such things or It may be
simply a repetition of what has happened
in the past. At any rate It Is tepoittxt
that London Is buying Ellis, that The
Hague has taken a fancy to enlarge In
holdings and that Montreal has caught the
speculative fever.
Capital F.arnlnK otliliitt.
One of the exhibits made by the tall
roads before the Interstate Commerce
Commission was designed to emphasize
that the reason for the application was
that operating expenses have Ineteased
faster than gross earnings so that net
operating Income has not Inert .tstd suffi
ciently to furnish ony return on the ad
ditional investment In the last tbiee Neins.
Oross earnings of thirty-live roads In the
eastern division from 1910 to 1913 In
creased $187,000,000 and operating ex
penses and taxes Increased 2n,O"(i,uti0.
Net operating Income decreased $lii,311.
000. But In tho tlitee ears the actual
property Investment, that Is cost of t ail
road and equipment, increased by almost
$600,000,000. it requited over $3 50 plop
erty Investment for each dollar of In
creased gross earnings and for each J1.37
of increased gross lnert a-til expenses and
taxes were $2 nl without any allowance
for Intertst on the new money spent to
supply facilities to eatn til" Inci eased
gross. In 1913 these t-ompanhs earned
$1,424,000,000 In gross. Net npt-iutiug in
come after deducting expenses, taxe,
rents and hire of equipment was $330,
654,000. Net corporate Income after pay
ment of Interest on funded debt and other
obligatory charges In 1913 was $200,
(500,000. Out of this net Income the com
panies declared dividends of 6.10 per cent,
on the capital stock outstanding, amount
ing to $130,000,000. ThH Mini was !19.

to say, cannot havo in tho least ap
preciated even If they have ever heard
of tho great economic function performed
by speculation in the commodity markets.
There is one Indisputable fact about spec
ulation In commodities which It Is
Just as well to bear constantly In mind
and that Is that speculation never can
change tho average price of 11 com
modity. If It did It would violate all
economic laws. The average price of a
commodity Is determined by the supply
and ilemand, anil nothing more. The
hlglily Important service reiidTcd bv spec
ulation Is that it reduce tlm tua
Hons in prices to comparatively narrow
limits, in fact, it nuts as it haltimlng
Intluence, correcting the market when
It Is Inclined to go too low-, and conversely
when n dangerous boom Is under wav. hi
the caso of cotton price fluctuations
are Inslgnlllcnnt to what they would
be without speculation. For proof It Is
only necessary to go back to times of
no 'speculation. In June, 1VJ:, that single
month witnessed fluctuations In the
price of cotton covering a range of 1.MI0
points, or ll centH a pound. S111I1 gvm
