J? v ! & I f h n it t ( l& ' & GOSSIP OF THE STREET BALDWIN AraDVALE CLAM ATTENTION DUE TO FORMER'S DEMAND AND LATTER'S PROFITS CAMP MEADE'S OLDEST soldiers' dance postponed I DILATORY SHIPMEN BUSINESS CAREER OF PETER FLINT A Story of Salesmanship by Harold Whitehead Financiers Discuss Rumors of Stock Dividend for Loco motive Company Position of Rapid. Transit and Higher Fares Gossip of the Street "DALDWIN Locomotive nncl Midvnle Steel liave npnin come Into prom JJInencc In discussions on the Street In this city, but thli time the interest Is not In any wny linked with the old stories roRardlnu a pnlhle merger. Instead they hae attracted attention Cot two distinct and sepa rate reasons, both of which have actual! been recorded The former became prominent due to the netlvp demand In ester day's generally quiet New York stock market for Its common shares, which carried the price up for a substantial adance, and the latter was brought Into the limelight of the financial district by Its excellent earn ings report for the quarter ended June SO, which showed large Increases over the previous qunrter and over the corresponding quarter of last jear. From New York comes the nevs that the rise In Baldwin stork came as a direct result of a large demand from Important Interests which was accompanied by talk of an unusually good earnings statement soon to bo made public and rumors that a stock dividend might be declaied and the Increased Issues put on an 8 per cent bals . Large Dividend Rumor Questioned Among local financiers manv are found who ghe some credent e to the report that there might be a stock dlstilbution, but there are few who think the common shares are likely to be placed on an S per cent dividend basis soon. While It Is known that the earnings ate i tinning high and that manv orders are on the books of the companv that will keep It bus after the end of this year, close followers of Baldwin affaiis point out that the expansion of the business by the erection of additional plants and the heavy working-capital requirements lesultant from the enormous busi ness have been used by ofllcials frequently dtiiing the last vear or two to explain why It was thought inadvisable to declare oinmon divi dends. And, since these demands are continuing, miny believe that if the shares are put on a dividend paying basis the amount would not be as much as the 8 per cent mentioned In Wall street. Some brokers and bankers are skeptical of all the rumors and say they believe the active demand for the shares has come from reports, also emanating from New Yoik, that the equipment trade experts "see every piospect of uninterrupted activitv In the lallroad motive power branch, with continued hatlsfactory profit for locomotive companies, chief of which ate American and Baldwin Botli of these companies already have all the business they can handle throughout 111S. They may look forward to next year with confidence, as all indications point to the probability that their plants will not be able to meet the demand and will be kept running full." Cambria Big Midvalc Asset In discussing the good report of 'the Midvale Steel and Ordnance Company special mention is made of the fact that it is the first steel organization of importance to show for the tecond quarter of this v. ear a surplus available for dividends greater than that repui ted in the second quarter of last year. It can be said that Mldvale's Uige earnings are due to sales of commercial hteel rather Ih in to munitions . The Cambria Steel Companv, which is the greatest asset of the Mid vale Steel, produces nothing but commercial pioducts, and Cambria Is understood to be earning at the rate of more than $2,",uCO,000 annuall The Rapid Transit Situation Announcement made a few dajs ago that emploves of the Rpald Transit Company were to receive large increases in wages has resulted In no little discussion among stockholders, bankers and brokers as to what is likely to be done by the Public Service Commission on the lenfee propo sition and what the outlook Is for higher fares. On this account the following discussion from the weekly market letter of Chandler Brothers . Co, is especially interesting: "The petition for the approval of the lease of the street railway lines owned by the City of Philadelphia to the Itapld Transit Company was considered and dlscussed'by the commission In secret session on Mondav, ' 'the 29th, but no decision has been rendered. These ptocccdings do not involve the question of Increased faret. To get the faie question before the commission a schedule of the increased fares must be published by the transit company, and this schedule must be formally consideied and passed upon by the commission. The companv has Mieadv raised the wages of the employes, and it Is generally believed that an incieaso of fares will be allowed, as such lnci eases have gone Into effect In mnay parts of the country. "No explanation has been made by the companv as to why a schedule of Increased fares has not been published Possibly, if the lease Is ap proved, the company may not consider It ncccfcsut 5 to increase the rate of fare. There Is evejry probability that the lease, with some modifications, will be approved It Is diftlcuit to conceive how the clt.v's own lines could be operated except In connection with lines owned bj tho Itapid Tianslt , Company. I "Wherever there has been a divided operation In othei cltlei theie has been trouble, and particular was this the case in San Francisco Over one year ago in our Market L.ettei of March 2, 191", in discussing the growth of Philadelphia, we used tnls language: 'New means of trans portation will be required and new surface roads, subways and overhead lines will be built, and the only companj to operate them will be the Itapid Transit Company, experience has shown that In great cities the public authorities must operate the transpai tatlon svstem as a whole or this must be done by one corporation under arrangements mutually advan tageous to the company and the public. That the city of Philadelphia will assume a great transportation business In Incredible; that in some way or another that business will be conducted by the Transit Companj as a unit, is sure.' We have no teason to change the opinion we then expressed."
