Good Progress Is Made in

INCREASE IN CALL LOANS

During Month.
Sptclal Dcpatcli to Taa Sen.
Montreai-i Canada, April 1. The
Fftruaxy statemrnt of Canadian banka,
ned few days ago, la taken
j;ere an reflecting further Improvement
t the general financial altuatlon in the
pomlnlon. The banks' holdings of securl
ftey, which decreased roundly $50,000,
(00 In January, largely as a result of
(iovernment repayments, were further
liquidated to the extent of about $0,000,
005, and while there was an Increase of
fT.000.0O0 In the mercantile and munld
ftl loans In Canada this was offset by
the decrease of a similar amount In the
current loans and discounts outside Can
(ids. A aatlsfactory feature pf the current
return Is that It shows the banks to have
made good progress in restoring their
external reserves. In view of the heavy
trade balance In favor of the United
ptatea and of the various Canadian bond
lus maturing from time to time In
New York this external reserve, consist
ing of call loans and net bank balances.
!i reckoned an Important banking asset.
During the five months ended January
,!, 191!, the banks were obliged to draw
cntlnually upon this fund and the ag
inrgatn balance fell from 245,327.63
to 11SS,01I,210, the decrease being $57,
rco.000. In February there was an In
. rsaso of $26. 500,000. bringing the bal
ance up to $214,541,027 and making the
i rt d-roiso for the six months $S1,
IOO.H0O. The movement wait reflected by an In
cram of $27,200,000 In the call loans
r"nhre than Canada, mast of It prob
ithlv occurring In connection with loans
n Wall Street houses. Tho Bank of
Montreal !s responsible for the greater
part of the Increase In call loans. (Ubal
.i.va therefore rtslnjr $18,000,000 to an
aycirpatfl of $95,300,000.
Kojai Bank of Canada shows an In
,tpi of $8,000,000 and the Canadian
Hank of Commerce and Bank of Nova
.otla an Increase of $2,000,000 each
To of these banks the Montreal and
fie Royal reported Increases of $9,000,
"00 and $8,00,0000 respectively In de-
iwslts of branches outside Canada, and
probably these Increased foreign deposits
furnished a considerable portion of the
wherewithal for making additional loanx
in Wall Street.
I'sually when a sharp Increase oc
rur In the deposits held by Canadian
hank branches outside the Dominion the
development may be traced to Canadian
sftirity Issues In New York or London:
tut there has been no Intimation of any
recent transaction of that kind which
might account for the Increase of funds
!n February. On the contrary the New
Tork market has been rather tightly
dosed against such new loans. 8o far
as the Royal Bank of Canada Is con
-riled, the Increase of $8,000,000 In Its
foreign deposits might conceivably be
connected with the activities of Its
Cuban and other tropical branches dur
ii.k the Sugar reason.
The additional funds put Into call
tarni by the Canadian Bank of Com
merce In February were apparently de
sert In part from the reduction of
jC.fiflO.OOO In Its current or time loans
o tld Canada.
The Currency Contraction.
The statement of the Dominion Oov-
frnment's note circulation for February
: hat not yet been Issued, but the Item
of the bank return showing a decrease
"f 111,200,000 In bank holdings of Do
minion notes points to a contraction of
He (rovernment issues. The banks'
i, "Mings of Dominion notes during Feb-
Mary declined from $184,900,000 to
Sr3,;o0,000; and at the same time the
amount of Dominion notes pledged by
'Vm In tho central gold reserves as
cor for excess Issues of bank notes
fell from $57,300,000 to $56,500,000.
Po nil told, there was a decrease of
Jll.noo.OOO In the amount directly and
indirectly held by the banks. It will be
'fmembered that between Aurust 31 and
I'ecembtr 31, 1917. the Dominion note
'.sues rose from $182,100,000 to $272,
' .000 the Increase of I90.SOO.000
b'lr.g supposedly duo to loans by the
fioernment to the banks to enable them
to carry the eneclal craln credit of 1100..
WOOO and otherwise finance the crop
movement.
At the end of December the Finance
i'nartment reported $98,000,000 of ap
Movm securities (probably British treas
"ry bills) held acalnst Its Issues of Do
minion notes the gold reserve against
n notes having meantime fallen
elleh'ly, from $120,000,000 to $115,000,-
00!
As rach new lsue of Dominion notes

,n approximately equal Increase In the

The apparent deficit of imii om

wnicn aid not appear at all In the 1916
report. The profit and loss surplus of
$24,301,384 compared with $27,596,593
the preceding year.
John N. Willys, president of the com
pany. In hU remarks to stockholders
says: "In the year 1917 the Willys
Overland Company. In Its desire to use
Its great facilities for war work,
branched out Into several new -lines.
Automobile sales were ahead of 1916 for
tne first nine months of the year, but
declined sharply ln the laet quarter of
the year. This closing period of the
year was one of rapid and sweeping re
adjustment from a peace to a war man
ufacturing bails."
Hegardlng the Willys-Overland Inter
est In the Curtlss Aeroplano affairs Mr.
Willys says: "In connection with tho
acquisition of an Interest In the Curtlss
Aeroplane and Motor Corporation. th
Willys-Overland Company sold at par ta
private Interests $3,475,000 of Its 7 pef
cent stock authorized ln 1915. but unis
sued since then. The proceeds of this
sale, together with $1,600,000 of 6 per
cent one year Willys-Overland Company
notes, were used to purchase 24.000
shares of 7 per cent cumulative pre
ferred stock and 60.000 shares of com
mon stock and $1,600,000 of ten year 6
per cent notes of the Curtlss Aeroplane
and Motor Corporation. Since January
1, 1918, the Curtlss corporation has re
deemed these ten year notes at 102 H
and Interest.
"The automobile business for the past
.year was satisfactory. Sales for the first
nine months were well ln excess of the
same period of the previous year, and
for the full twelve months might have
reached a now high total were It not
for the readjustment to war conditions
as hereinbefore referred to.
"Unfilled orders on hand to date are
In excess of the Fame period of a year
ngo. This fact, together with the ad
vanced stage of 1918 pchedule of auto
mobllo production, points clearly to the
conclusion that plant and branch house
Inventories will te very largely reduced
before the end of the summer. This re
lease of funds, now In progress, will en
able the company to reduce materially
the outstanding current Indebtedness."
curb trading is
at a Standstill
Tendency Is to Await Farther
Developments in the Eu
ropean Battle.
Trading was almost at a standstill In
the curb market yesterday following a
fairly active and strong opening. Trices
as a rule were firm, but there was no
general upward movement the tendency
being o await further developments In
the European battle. The strength dis
played by the tobaoco stocks on the
Stock Exchange had no Influence In mov
ing British American Tobacco higher,
but It was under pressure and sold to a
new low level for tho year.
Inactivity In airplane shares attracted
some attention during the last week.
Dulness tn these' Issues) Is probably due
to lack of outsldo demand owing to state
ments In Congress and to various rumors
that airplane companies handling Gov
ernment contracts are lacking In output
Curtlss Aeroplane was Inactive, while
only a few sales wero reported In
Wright-Martin.
Trading In the motor and war stocks
was almost at a standstill, but quota
tions were well maintained. Standard
Oil Issues were firm features, advance
from 2 to 13 points being recorded, with
the largest K.iln In Standard Oil of Now
Jerr?y. l'ralrle l'lpc Line moved to a
new high for the year.
Mining stocks were quite active. A
growing demand for silver shares was
noticed. The general opinion Is that sli
ver will be fixed at $1 an ounce, and that
companies operating outside of this
country will sell tho metnl at a figure
above the price fixed by the Government.
If this Is true It will mean better earn
ings for companies with mines In Mexico.
'JLampazos Silver was nlded by this stste
ment, and It Is said earnings are esti
mated to exceed $2,000,000 with the com
pletion of Its 300 ton plant El Salva
dor Silver, which was recently Intro
duced to trading, was steady. This com
pany is a consolidation of a group of
companies producing silver and gold In
the Republic of El Salvador.
Honda were moderately active and
fractionally higher with Initial trades
In Procter A Gamble 7s. 1920. and Win
chester Repeating Arms, which bears 7
per cent Interest. Russian Governments
were inactive.

CONSOLIDATED EXCHANGE,
With the volume of business compara
tively small, the market on the Consoli
dated Stock Exchange closed yesterday
with prices of the leading securities
showing fractional net gains. The closing
quotations, however, were at a lower level
than the day's high. The tone of the
market was Inclined to Irregularity dur
ing the greater part of the session,
which opened strong and active, giving
every promise of continuing so through
out the day. But In the second hour a
reaction set In and with the gradual re
cession In prices the volume of trading
grew less and less. The supply of
stocks was limited, but fully equal to
the demand. Good news from the battle
front caused prices to advance at the
opening and made the market fairly
active and the flrst hour the best of
the entire session. Lacking any support
save Iti own Inherent stability, the mar
ket sagged off. developing weakness
hero and there and stagnation. Under
such circumstances It was a cause for
wonder that the market held as It did.
It was proof of the assertion that the

The necessity of conforming to the
maximum price regulations gave the
coffee market rather an Irregular ap
pearance during yesterday's trading.
May contracts, which had closed at 1.80
bid on Thursday, wero marked down to
8.6D, representing tho maximum based
on the current month price of 8.50.
Asldo from this readjustment, there was
scattering liquidation of Hcptember, but
as soon as the felling of that delivery
had been absorbed on a decline of about
10 points tho general Hat ruled steady
on scattered covering or trade buying.
Tho opening was 2 points higher to 8
points tower, and the market closed at a
net decline of 15 points on April and
May, while other months wero G points
lower to 4 points higher.
Very little developed In the c. f.
market over the holidays, and shippers
ln Brazil are unable to offer freely aw
ing to the scarcity of freights, which
shows no Improvement About the only
offers here were Santos 4s at 11c. and
Santos K, 7 and 8s at 10.15c, both
steamship shipment and Ixmdon credits.
The deliveries of Urazlllnn coffee dur
ing the past week have been very heavy
and difficult to account for except that
the coffee may have gone to tli Gov
ernment and for export. Tho trado lias
been quiet, and It Is said that nt present
the Interior Is carrying full stocks.
Stocks Ht Brazilian ports nro targe
and clearances to the United States
have been light. There was n holiday Sat
urday In Brazil. The Santos spot market
was unchanged and futures 75 to 100
rels higher, Kecoipts at the two ports
were 26,000 bigs, against 12,000 bags a

Julius H. Barnes of the Food Ad
ministration has aald : "Pray for a bis
wheat crop!" Whatever prayers have
been made are helns; responded to. Thcro
are highly Impressive reports coming:
from virtually all Important n Inter
wheat districts Indicating; an Ideal crop
outlook. The April Government report,
due next Monday, promises to he an
exhibit of optimism. There have been
timely rains In the Southwestern winter
wheat belt, and also eome rains ln the
Bnst, nr;d while the effect of these will
not be fully registered In this coming
Government report, which takes up con
ditions as of April 1, the situation wilt
be duly altowed for.
A substantial Improvement In th
crop condition over the December report
of 79.3 is certain. In Oklahoma the con
dition last December wa only SO and
it is now figured at close to AO. Last
April tho Government made the condi
tion of winter wheat 9,3.t, which was
the lowest In a ilecado. and the crop. It
will bn remembered, was only 418,000,000
bushels of winter wheat. There will be
no winter wheat area figures given until
May, and It Is hard to conceive of any
thing that can develop to bring; down
the present area much under J3.000.000
ncres. as compared with onry 27 430,000
left standing a year ago. Taklnp; the
crop conditions nt this time, and the
area prospects of winter wheat, ft con
servative crop outlook In bushels at this
enrly date would be 600,000.000 bushels,
or nearly 200,000,000 bushels more win
ter wheat than a year ago.
Private adxlces have been received
stating that 200 farmers In Indiana,
IlllnoU and Kentucky have reported at n
millers' convention that winter wheat
In their rectlons never looked so irood
at this season of the year. Travelling
men from the more Northwesterly parts
say that sprlnar wheat seeding Is four
teen days ahead of last year, and an
early start of spring wheat on a well
prepared soil, Htlch ns l noted this
year, are two essentials for a hit; crop.
With tho decreased consumption of
wheat of about 20 per cent. In our
country nnd the great start of the win
ter and spring wheat crops, together
with the very favorable beginnlne of
tho Canadian spring wheat start, there
promises to be liberal quantities avail
able for export this comlnt; season, and
It will probably be mure a question of
tonnage to take the wheat abroad than
one of available supplies of grain, unless
the season changes quickly and adverse
climatic conditions remain for an ab
normally lone; time.

rivals of low grade) corn had a benrlh
effect tn.day on the corn market. Trices
cloeed unsettled. He. net lower, with
May ll.ISVi. Oats finished IN to lc.
on. Tho outcome in provisions ranged
from lOc. decline to a rlse of 5c.
Depression ln the corn market de
veloped In tho main after cash dealings
had shown that poor to rotten samples
hail fallen In value 20c. to :5c. a bushel.
I'orn that was out of condition proved
hard to sell even at the bottom figures
reached, which wero about the lowest so
far on the 1917 rrcp. A further bearish
Influence was the fact thst the move
ment to primary points continued ma
terially iu excess of last year. Besides,
the visible supply total showed a liberal
gain as compared with a week ago, and
It was said shlpplnr business from hern
was out ct the question under exlstlriR
rail conditions.
Oats underwent a decided setback on
account or lowering or bids from the
seaboard. Auspicious weather for tho
newly seeded crop tended also to weaken
the market
l'rovlsinns averaged lower as a result
inoro or l h of a falllns off In ship
