Evidence of Improved

Btcnosrnphors nro busy Blmrrieiilnir pen
cils and bond salesmen who have been
on protracted vacations aro being called
In. For thoro has come a general
brightening' of the situation which fore
casts an early resumption of trading.
This Is tho eighth week of hostilities In
JJurope and Is nlso tho eighth week slnco
there developed the financial depression
Incident to tho closing of tho world's
Htock Exchanges becnuso of tho war.
Jlany things have happened at homo and
abroad In tho meantime. There Is no In
dication that any cessation of hostilities
in near, but thoro aro many ovldonces
tnat thero Is at hand a, readjustment of
tho financial situation which shall lead
shortly to a moro normal resumption or
r general business.
At no tlmo during tho eight long weeks
tho suspension has been under way has
tho outlook been so bright as It Is today.
There Is everywhere apparent that gen
eral feeling of confidence which has been
ho badly needed and which has made
Itself felt to such a largo degrco that In
the financial centres of the country plans
are being gradually worked out for mar
ket operations on a larger scale than
London, Now York nnd Philadelphia
rnaikcts have arranged to begin traaing
la securities within certain restrictions.
Tho committee of tho London Exchange
has published a list of securities In which
trust funds may bo Invested and has given
minimum prices for the same. There Is
also a proposal at tho British centre to
ileal In securities through auctioneers.
At home tho most Important step that
has been taken Is the ruling that unlisted
eccurltlcs may bo dealt In through brokers
and that prices must not be rigidly main
tained on the basis available when the
Stock Exchange closed In July. All this
means preparations for actual business.
The list will probably from now on be
gradually widened.
Managers of the Stock Exchange are
now under the impression that business
may bo icsumed In an unrestricted way
on November 1. This Is still dependent
on the banking situation and tho esti
mate of November 1 Is contingent upon
the ability of the Federal Reserve Board
to have the new banking conditions In
eractieal workable form before that date.
The week opened In tho foreign ex
change market with a Jump of ISc. In
both demand nnd cables. A heavy de
mand for exchange was evidenced and
lurther advances aro looked for. The In
quiry Is directly duo to tho fnct that
ti'oout JW.Ono.Chfl of American finance bills
held abroad have got to be met by Octo
ber ,
The special demand for cables Is dun to
the fact that no steamer can possibly
reach the other side In time for tho set

of tht Xuiv York Stock Exchnnge rules

Sons of Pennsy Employes Will Enter

Samuel Lycll Lelthlser, of Havre do
Orace, Md., and William L. Butler, of
Now Philadelphia, Ohio, arc tho 19U
winners of tho Frank Thomson Scholar
ships established In 1M7 by tho children
of the late Frank Thomson, former presi
dent of the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany, ns a memorial to their father. Both
tho successful candidates this year will
enter tho University of Pennsylvania.
Tho Thomson Scholarships aro awarded
each year en a purely competitive basis
and nrc open only to the son of living
or deceased employes of tho Hues of the
Pennsylvania Hnllroad system, both east
and west of Pittsburgh nnd Erie.
Lelthlser Is the son of Scalo Inspector
Isaac I. Lelthlser. of the Maryland Divi
sion. He was born In Havre de Grace,
Sld March 23, 1&33. Butler Is the son
of E. It. Butler, passenger conductor on
tho Cleveland and Pittsburgh Division of
tho Lines West. Ho Is 13 years old.
A decrease of 5 per cent, per mile In
totnl operating revenue of railroads In
Juno compared with the same month of
last year Is shown In the summary of
the Bureau of Railway Economics. The
Biimmarv ulso shows that thero was a
decrease In operating expenses of 4.1 per
cent. Tho net operating revenue per mile
wan $23 smaller, or 7 per cent., when com
pared with June. 1913.
With the Intention of breaking up the
practice of passengers riding on plat
forms of moving passenger cars, the
Pennsylvania Railroad has posted no
tice! on bulletin boards of the Pittsburgh
Division warning passengers of tht dun
gcr in so doing.
Through a lost adveitleement a passen
ger on tho Maryland Division of the
Pennsylvania Railroad recovered $100
which he had lost on tho platform In
Broad street stntlon nnd which was
picked up by a brakeman nnd held by
the company until the owner was found.
Othelal? of the Pennsylvania saw the ad
vertisement, -which appeared or.ee, got
Into communication with the man and
tho money, which was the savings of a
six months' cruise on a sailing vessel, was
returned to him.
Chicago is now assured of Its new $65,
000,000 union stntlon and pnssenger ter
minal yards, the Pennsylvania and other
roads Interested In Its Joint construction
having accepted the city ordinance gov
erning tho undei taking. This Involved
tho payment to the city of $3J3.S0ii, nnd a
few weeks ago there was danger that the
entcrpiiho would bo delayed In anticipa
tion of difficulty In raising tho money,
owing to tho war. This appears to have
been overcome. The work Is to be com
pleted In five years.
Statistics show that only a little moro
than 3 per cent, of the passenger cars
turned out Inst year were, of wooden con
struction, and In a few years those of
wood will have disappeared from the
principal ntterles of travel. If not from all
roads. In tho coming year all postal cars
must be of steel. In the four years ended
January 1. 1313. steel passenger cars In
creased In number from 620 to 7271, and
steel underframe cars from 673 to 3296,
each of tho former costing $13,000. which
serves to indicate how expensive It Is to
tho railroads to make the change to metal

State Body Covering Life,
Fire and Casualty Brokers
Will Make War on Pro
posed Obnoxious Laws.
Organization of the Insurance Federa
tion of Pennsylvania has been completed.
It has established temporary head
quarters In tho rooms of tho Flro Insur
ance Society, In Fourth street near Wal
nut. The federation Is. made up of life,
flro nnd casualty Insurance agents and
brokera throughout the State.
In a letter to brokers nnd ngents, J,
V. Henry, president of the newly formed
federation, declares that the future of
the Insurance agent In Pennsylvania Is
In danger, nnd that thero must bo made
a co-opcrotlva attack on laws, which, he
says, tho next Legislature plans to put
thro.ugh covering Insurance regulation
nnd operation.
"Ab you aro well aware," says Presi
dent Henry, "tho Insurance business hn3
been tho subject of attack by Legislatures
In suvornl States, and, as you know, the
Insurance ngents of Ohio, West Virginia,
Washington nnd other States, havo been
put out of business after working yenrs
In building up their agencies. Wo nre at
this time confronted In Pennsylvania with
a Logllaturo about to convono to give
consideration to measures vital to the
Interests of the Insurance ngents In tho
State of Pennsylvania, and wo must be
prepared to meet tho Issue fairly by be
ing organized Into a body that will wield
such an Influrnce na will grant to us as
ngents and citizens of the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania a right to continue In
the Insurance business as a means of
livelihood. Had tho ngents been organ
ized In Ohio nnd other States, they would
Btlll have their business.
"If tho Insuranco business Is attacked
nnd legislation passed which Is detrimen
tal to tho business, there wilt bo no
fuither need of the agent. The Insur
ance companies have no right to cotno
In and say what character of legislation
shall bo passed but we, as citizens, tax
payers and voters of this Commonwealth
should say what sort of legislation shall
bo put upon our bread nntl butter.
"Only organization can Favo and per
petuate to us the need of the agent In
Pennsylvania, and ns fire Insurance, work
men's compensation nnd llfo insurance
we know will be matters for considera
tion by our next Legislature, we must,
for tho salvation of our business, bo
organized In a compact body, working
hand In hand In legislative matters to
safeguard our business."
