Holiday dulness continued to prevail on
the Philadelphia market. The resumption
of business today found commission
houses lacking In orders and floor traders
were In no mood to do business until tho
foreign situation becomes clearer. Ono
satisfactory feature on tho local ex
change, however, was thnt whero New
York Issues wero Inclined to sag, purely
local shares merely remained Inert.
Transactions throughout tho greater part
of tho seanlon wcro confined to odd lots,
and prlco changes wcro almost nil ex
cept In such arbitrage shares as U. S.
Steel, Reading, Pennsylvania nnd Lehigh
Valley.
Aftor tho annual meeting of the Le
high Navigation Company, where tho
management wns questioned ns to tho
success of the Harwood Electric ven
ture and also ns to tho relatively high
operating ratio, tho stock declined a sub
stnntlnl frnctlon. A Block of COO Rapid
Transit sold at 10, n slight recession from
Saturday's close.
In the Into trading Cambria Steel weak
ened to 41, ngnlnst I1T4 earlier In the day.
Amerlcnn OaH nnd Electric lost over n
point, but otherwise stagnation ruled and
tho mnrket closed dull nnd steady.
In the bond division similar stagna
tion prevnllcd except for a certain nmount
of buying of Canbrla Steel scrip. Elec
tric nnd Peoples 4r wcro In modcrnto do
mnnd nlso. Incidentally It became known
that tho City Treasurer had sent letters
to tho local national banks and trust
con.pnnlos holding deposits of city funds,
asking whether they destro to continue
holding these deposits nftor March 2
and pay Interest to tho city nt tho rnto
of 214 por cent, per annum. Councils re
cently passed an ordlhnnco Increasing tho
Interest rnte from 2 to 2A per cent., ef
fective on the above date.
A majority of Institutions havo icplled
to tho letter, expressing willingness to
keep the deposits at tha higher rate. The
now rnto also npplles to tho city's three
active dcDosltorlcs. tho Third, Franklin
and Markot Street Nationnl Hanks, which (
now pay no Interest on city funds, (
Money rates remained practically un
altered, but a slight Incrcnso In demand
for funds wob noted In certain quarters, j
The opinion la hold by somo thnt, with ,
the ond of tho mouth requirements out I
of tho way, the cnll rate may be dropped 1
to 314 per cent. At present thero Is very j
llttlo Inquiry for money on call, nnd
brokers aro being offered plenty nt 4
por cent.

CHICAGO, Feb 2.1. Apprehension over
the foreign shipping situation nnd feorn
that the Dnrdnnejlea may bo opened by
tho Allien, thus releasing millions of
bushels of wheat, caused a general sell
Ing movement by commission houses at
tho opening of the grain pit this morning,
driving tha prices of all grains below
tho closing on Saturday. May wheat
opened 2H cents down nt Jl.BS, and on
succeeding sales declined to J1.&3H. or 6
cents off from Saturday. July wheat lost
V,i cents on the first fow sales, dropping
to $1.274, nnd then to 21.23H, down 4T
cents per bushel.
May closed nt Jl.CIi, off 854 conts from
Saturday, while July showed a loss of
C?i cents at 1.25i.

dorlved from Investments. This incomo shows
a decreaae ot ?!3,2T2, as compared with 1013,
which I accounted for by the reduction In

In the Harwood Coal Company and Harwood
Store Corrpany. In 1014 these .dividends
amounted to t30.000. a compared with f80.000
frithS prevlou year. The failure of the two
latter companies 'to continue dividend; at the
rate paid In 1013 -waa due to the fact that
their surplus sccount had been depleted
tl rough dividend disbursements In tho year
1U12 and 1013. o that It was Incumbent on
both companle. to curtail fur her dividends
until earning retore4 the surplus to la con

Mnnngement Questioned on Electric
Developments.
At tho Lehigh Coal nnd Nnvlfjntlon
Company's nnnual meeting today William
Jny Turner presided and II. F. Baiter
acted ns secretary. When tho stockhold
ers wero Invited to ask any questions
concerning the report, GeorBO II. Stephen
son naked why the operating ratio ot the
company wnB higher than In other coal
companies. Ho cited thnt tho ratio of
operating expenses to gross receipts of
tho Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company
was about 5 per cent., whereas in tho
Lohlgh nnd Wllkes-Barre Coal Company
It was 75 ccr cent.
President S. D. Warrlner, In reply,
stated thnt tho output ot the two com
panion la different, the Lehigh and Wilkes
Darre hnvlng about 68 per cent, of Us
total In prepared domestic sizes, for which
tho higher prices aro received, while of
tho Lehigh Coal and Navigation's output
nhout Et Der cent. Is In prepared sires.
Mr. Stephenson suggested that; the com
pany's properties be leased to Increase
the net Incomo per ton, nnd the president
said that the present expenses include
many charges that would have to bo met
by the company If the mines were leased.
Mr. Stephenson asked about tho condi
tion of the Harwood and tho Lehigh
Navigation electric companies, saying
that he had been Informed the latter was
not a success. President AVarrlner de
clined to discuss the Harwood Electric
Company. Ho said that as the Lehigh
Navigation Electrlo Company has only
been In operation since Inst May, It Is too
early to Judge whether or not It la a
success. A motion was adopted approv
ing the annual report and tho acts of tho
board of managers laat year. The elec
tion then held, wr. warnner oeum re
oierted president and ft member of the
board of managers, nnd nil other mem
bers ot the board were reelected.

A very Interesting phase of tho real
estate market Is tho absorption by build
ers and keen observers of tho trend of
nrfairs In outlyinir estates which, after
having been held In families for many
years, havo reached a point whero they
are considered ready to bo converted Into
sites for homes.
There are many BUch properties to bo
found along tho line of Baltimore, Ches
ter nnd Woodland avenues; many more In
Frnnkford and Germnntown, and not a
fow in the central part of the city.
One by one they arc coming into the
market and the trader nnd tho builder
know but llttlo of what 13 going on
behind tha scenes.
Tho struggle for wcnlth Is the under
lying reason. Those of us who only see
tho transfer know llttlo of tho regret
when It was felt best In tho Interest ot
all to sell the old estate. We talk of
tho advancing market, of the broadening
of the built-up portion, and while the old
homo Is absorbed, wo comment us to
whether the price Is high or low.
OPTIMISTS LEAD.
In the United States tho optimist al
ways has had the best of It In the long
run, nnd those who are sanguine about
the future In the real estate world havo
reaped a great harvest.
We aro always Inclined to be cautious
nnd conservative, but oven with both ot
these iualltles well In view, future profit
seems to He largely In the line of pro
viding homes. Wc anticipate the Increase
In tho population and we know about
whut future home buyers will want.
METHODS CHANGED,
In the old days, when building was not
such a tine, nrt and there wero not the
many Improvements now to be found In
the most modeit dwellings, a homeir.akcr
bought a lot, visited an architect and
went over plans, hunted up a builder,
started tho work and paid for the con
struction as It progressed.
Now tho buyer obtains a house which
has been built to sell, for the reason that
he can net more for his money than by
doing his own building and taking the
chance of extras growing dally from his
Inexperience. These items often eat up
the profits In a contract Job, whereas an
experienced builder takes the greatest
care to cover tho smallest detail,
APARTMENT PROPOSITION,
While tho comforts of an Individual
homo are many, Hie apartment proposl
tlon undoubtedly Is gaining In popularity,
and Is likely to occupy "moro attention
from now on. A few years ago apartment-
wer looked on as experiments In
this city, and It was questioned whethejj
they would prove acceptaoie, .-iucw
wont boldly ahead; the servant problem
nlded tho movement. It soon was seen
that tho npartment houso was duo to
meet Increasing success, and building
after building went up.
APARTMENT HOUSE NEEDED.
Tho need of a centrally located house
keeping apartment house frequently has
been polntod out, the rentals not to be
higher than $800 to J100Q per annum. It
would be sultablo for young couples to
begin married life In. Finding a suitable
homo In favored localities at a moderate
rent always has been one ot the difficul
ties of tho newly-weds, and often ends In
getting a much too expensive house amt
bcglnnlng life where the means of tha
couples' parents would placo them, but
nt on exponso not posslblo within their
own Income, thereby establishing a falsa
standard.
Tho market Is entirety void of a propo
sition such ns Just outlined, and its suc
cess, from every point of view, would bo
certain beforo the building was under
roof.
Of course, combination of Interests has
some drawbacks, but the balance Is in
their favor; certainly from tho standpoint
of less caro and smaller oxpenso In oper
ation, as far as tho family Is concerned.
This Is written from a man's vlewpolrit,
nnd it la a fact thoroughly well known to
every woman in tho world that men know
but llttlo about the dally cares and de
tails of a houso, Tho number of times
that a carpful housekeeper traverses the
staircase, tho watchful eye lest some
point In the -political economy of provid
ing shall have beon missed! the Incessant
questions from the servant for Instruo- '
tlons, and the numberless other trouble
some details aro little realzcd by men.
THE APARTMENT A BOON.
In an npartment these problems ar
avoided The npartment la all on one
floor blessed fact! You aro virtually
beyond the reach of attack from the
street and every modern Idea has beer
taxed to make It easy to get your aur
piles to the place where they are neede
Your coal bills, hldec'us phantoms, nrej
thlng of the past. and In many coses
your light Is furnished. If not. It la under
control by a general mter ar.d a much
stronger "pull" atthe gas gfflqe than an ,
Individual could have.'
Then, too, there Is another r atter to ,
