m EVENING LfiPftl-PHILADLPHIA, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28. 1914. ryxmKtrwW'grr9 !!' IS FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL SITUATION AT HOME AND ABROAD-MARKET REPORTS MARKET SITUATION BETTER AS EIGHTH WAR WEEK BEGINS 1 More Confidence Every where and Talk of Early Exchange Reopening Is Evidence of Improved Conditions. Tlilp Is tlio eighth week of hostilities In Europo and Is nlao the eighth week since there developed tho financial depression Incident to the closing of the world's Block Exchanges because of tho war. Jinny things have happened nt home nnd abroad In tho meantime. There Is no In dication that any cessation of hostilities Is near, hut thero nro many evidences that thero Is nt hand a readjustment of tho financial situation which shull lead shortly to a moro normal resumption or general business. At no tlmo during tho eight long weeks tho suspension has been under way has tho outlook been so bright aB It Is today. There Is everywhere apparent that gen eral feeling of confidence which haB been so badly needed and which hao made Itself felt to such a largo degreo that In the financial centres of tho country plans sro being gradually worked out for mar ket operations on a larger scalo than l!onlon, Now Tork and Philadelphia markets have arranged to begin tniuing In securities within certain restrictions. Tho committee of tho London Exchange has published a list of securities In which trust funds may bo Investod and has given minimum prices for tho same. Thero is also a proposal at tho British centre to deal In securities through auctioneers. a homo tho most Important step that has boon tnkon Is tho ruling that unlisted securities may be dealt in through brokers nd that prices must not be rigidly main tained on tho basis available when tho Stock Exchange closed In July. All this means preparations for actual business. Tho list will probably from now on bo gradually widened. Managers of tho Stock Exchange are now under the Impression thut business may bo resumed in an unrestricted way on November 1. This is still dependent on the banking situation and the esti mate of November 1 Is contingent upon the ability of tho Federal Itescrvo Eoard to have tho new banking conditions in practical workable form before thut date. Now that the $100,000,000 gold pool to meet foreign Indebtedness has been com pleted, It may not bo long before its bene ficial results nro reflected In a setback In foreign exchange. Tills Is the effect It will doubtless have when the plans ato set In motion, How niiicli of the $100, COO.OOO gold will bo sent to Ottawa, to ue the expression of one prominent member of the special clearing house committee, "Is problcm-alc.'il." It is pro posed to make a first call on the sub scribing banks for '2o per cent, of their subscriptions, or a total of $23,000,000 In gold. CREDITORS GET PLAN OF CLAFLIM REORGANIZATION Cash Payment of 10 Per Cent. Will So Made Available. Hanking and merchandise creditors of the II. B. Claflln Company, which went Into receivership three months ago, today received from the Noteholders' Commlt- teo final drafts of the plans for reorgan ization of tho company. Thoy wero nsked to give their 'consent to the provisions of the plan, After this permission has been obtained, tho authority of tho Fed eral Court will be sought for the pur pose of putting it Into immediate opera tion. The plan suggests tho acceptance of n, payment of 15 per cent. In cash and BS per cent. In throe-year collateral trust notes, renewable for two years at ma turity. Tho notes are to be Issued In 23 sorles corresponding to the 23 companies, nnd each is to be secured by the stock of the particular company. The Jobbing house, tho II. C. Claflln Company Itself, Is to bo reorganized as a separate concern, nnd Its creditors will llkowlso receive 15 per cent In cash and 85 per cent. In notes. After having given his two homes at Morrlstown N. J., nnd In tho Adlron daoks to tho creditors of his dry goods cot potation, II. B. Clnfiln fought hard for a part In the reorganization scheme, It was learned today. The Creditors' Committee stated, however, that the for mer head of the corporation had been barred from any connection with tho business. Flvo trustees havo been named to hold all the stock In the Mercantile Stores Company and namo Its directors until all debts have been paid. They are James S. Alexander and John W. T.

Statistics of manufactures of the State Bureau of Industrial Statistics of New Jersey show that tho year 1913 was a fairly prosperous one for the 3S0,S3S per sons whose Incomes, whether in tho form of wages or salaries, are drawn from the products of Industries. The increase In the number of estab lishments In 1913, as compared with 1912, was S2, or 3.2 per cent. The capital In vested has grown from $919,137,610 In 1912 to $W9,TD,501 In 1913, an increase of $i0, C5S.S9I. or B.'5 per cent. Tho distribution of tills enormous capital, according to tho requirements of Industry, was as follows: Invested In lnnd and buildings, J224.359, 12S; in machinery, tools and Implements, $210,331,939; In all other forms, cash on hand, bills payable, stock in process of manufacture, etc., Jo3l.855.137. Tho cost of all stock or material used In 1912 was $ 3,411, 033; In 1913 It was $SS9, 062,570, an increase of I0,GT,1,493, or 6.3 per cent. The total selling value of all goods made or work done was $1,051,402,715 in 1912, nnd $1, 123,821, 3S! In 1913; the Increase for the latter year was, therefore, 177,421, C7I, or 7.3 per cent. The greatest number of wage earners employed nt any time during the year 1913 was 360,321, the smnllest number was 297,133 and the average number, 333,018. The difference between the two extremes was 35,855, or 17.5 per cent, which Indi cates tho proportion of unemployment experienced by tho factory and workshop wage earner of the Stato during 1913. Organization of tho Insurance Federa tion of Pennsylvania has been completed. It has established temporary head iunrters In the rooms of tho Fire Ilisui nnco Society, In Fourth street near Wal nut. The federation Is mndc up of life, fire nnd casualty Insurance agents nnd brokers throughout the State. In a letter to brokers and agents, J. W, Henry, president of the newly formed federation, declares that tho future of tho Insurance agent In Pennsylvania Is In danger, nnd that thero must be made a co-operatlvo attack on laws, which, he says, the next Legislature plans to put throujrh covering Insurance regulation and operation. "As you are well aware," says Presi dent Henry, "tho Insurance business has boon the subject of nttack by Legislatures In severs! States, and, as you know, tho Insurance agents of Ohio, West Virginia, Washington and other States, havo been put out of business after working years in building up their agencies. Wo nre at this time confronted In Pennsylvania with q Legislature about to convene to give consideration to measures vital to the Interests of the Insurance agents In tho Stato of Pennsylvania, and we must bu prepared to meet tho Issue fairly by be ing organized Into a body that will wield such an influence 03 will grant to us ns agents and citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania a right to continue In the Insurance business as a means of livelihood. Had the agents been organ ized In Ohio and other States, they would still have their business. "If the Insuranco business is attacked nnd legislation passed which Is detrimen tal to the business, thero will be no fuither need of the agent. The Insur ance companies have no right to como In and say what character of legislation shnll bo passed but wo. as cltlzons, tax payers and voters of this Commonwealth should say what sort of legislation shall be put upon our bread nnd butter. "Only organization can save and per petuate to us the need of tho agent in Pennsylvania, and as fire Insurance, work men's compensation and life Insurance wo know will be matters for considera tion by our next Legislature, we must, for the salvation of our business, be organized in a compact body, working hand in hand in legislative matters to safeguard our business." Officers and directors of the federation are: J. W. Henry, president; S. H. Pool nnd J, S. Turn, vice presidents; J. L. Rlvolta. treasurer. Directors: Robert M. Coyle, Philadelphia; Wallace M. Roid Pittsburgh; Charles K. Yungman, Phila delphia; James F. Tanner. Erie; II. A. Logue, Pittsburgh; J. W. Barr, Oil City; J. B. Longacre, Philadelphia; F. S, Barr, Lancaster; J. E. Parnell.

The summary also shows that there was a decrease In operating expenses of 4.1 por cent. The net operating revenue per mile was $23 smaller, or 7 per cent., when com pared with June. 1913. With the Intention of breaking up the practice of passengers rldlni; on plat forms of moving passenger cars, tho Pennsylvania Railroad has posted no tices on bulletin boards of the Pittsburgh Division warning passengers of the dan ger in so doing. Through a lost advertisement a passen ger on the Maryland Division of the Pennsylvania Ruilroad recovered $100 which he had lost on tho platform in Broad street Btntion nnd which was pcke4 up by a brakeman and held by the company until the owner was found. Ottic-luls of the Pennsylvania saw the ad vertisement, which appeared once, got into communication with the man and the money, which was the savings of a six mouths' cruise on a sailing vessel, was returned to him. Chicago Is now assured of Its new J65,. 000,000 union station and passenger ter minal yards, the Pennsylvania and other roads Interested In Its Joint construction having accepted the city ordinance gov erning the undertaking. This Involved the payment to the city of J323.S05, and a few weeks ago thero was danger that the enterprise would be delayed In anticipa tion of difficulty In raising the monev. owing to the war. This appears to have been overcome. Tho work Is to be com pleted In five years. Statistics show that only a little more than 3 per cent, of the passenger cars turned out last year were of wooden con struction, and In r few years those of wood will havo disappeared from the principal arteries of travel, if not from all roads. In the coming year all postal cars must be of steel. In the four years ended January 1, 1913, steel passenger cars in creased In number from 629 to 7271, and steel underfranfe cars from 673 to 3393, each of the former costing 313.000, which serves to Indicate haw expensive It Is to the railroads to make the change to metal equipment. On October 7, at 2 p. m., the Depart ment of Agriculture will Issue a report of condition and yields of grain crops. The Utlca Steam and Mohawk Cotton Mills, of Utlca, N. T havo received an order from tho French Government for 600,000 sheets. President Robert Lamont. of tho Ameri can Steel Foundries Company, on an In spection trip of the company's plants, says that It will be necessary to close some of the plants and curtnll production at other works. Mr. Lamont said that the foundry business was decidedly poor at present. Retiring directors wore re-elected nt tho annual meeting of the Chicago, Milwau kee and St. Paul. The American Gas Company announces tho payment of the remaining outstand ing 11,600,090 5 per cent, collateral trust loan at its Tnaturity October 1, at the of fice of the Merchants' Union Trust Com pany. The financing of tho loan was pro vided for earlier In tho year by the place ment of a like amount of 5 per cent, col lateral trust bonds, nil of which have been sold to Investors.
