vv who claimed to have Inside
ihanfic. Tho cues which seemed
rmnil 1 per cent extru, bilmjIiiK the
cent basis. There was no difference
corporation had the money lo pay
extra which It had been paying for some time pat If the directors
desired to do ho. Here and there could bo found nn occasional Indi
vidual who cherished the Idea that, besides the regular of Hi. there
would probably be an extra voted of 3 per cent ns a hind of an oftset
to the action of the tteth'ehcm directors.
Thoee who field UjggBlnion that the tegular l'i with n 2 per cent
extra would bo dodot before were In the majority and belonged to
the conservative cNss of bankers. They based their conclusions largely
on tho optimistic sta "ment of Judge Clary as printed In this column
yesterday, In which he si.M the corporation was taking back tho men It
ITiive to the nrmv as fast as they were being discharged.
When the dividend was announced at I'.i reg-ilar and 1 per cent
extra the stock exchange v. as closed and brokers' ofllccs generally de
serted, with the exception of a few who h.xd guessed right and who
waited around to say, "I told yon to'."
liscuss Reasons for Marine s
There were not a few bankers
who saw a reason for the declines
shares In the announcement made on Monday last that freight rates
between the United States nnd (lieat Hrltiiln had offered a. reduction
of 06 2-3 per cent, to go Into effect lnslnnter. One banker said he
understood that the former exorbitant war rates v.eie the cause for
holding back of buyers from other countilcs. He said tho mou would
Unquestionably result In a great expansion In our- foreign business.
A certain broker had a new Idea In connection with tho depression
of the Mercantile Marino stocks. Ho said thai in u few yem.4 ships pro-
(M pclled by steam and using coal vvoikjil
nd that most or the international .Marine crans were in mm .-n.-.
Most of the new vessels now being constructed were of the oil-but nine
class, he said, and the sating lit cargo space, not to mention the suvltig
of space In tho forecastle occupied now by a small army of stokers on
tho coal burners, would in Itself be a large source of protlt. Add to this
tho saving In the cost of operation, where two or at most three men In
the engine room accomplish as much as lifts or sixty stokers, and It Is
easy tu see, he remarked, where the coal-burner will come In.
''if Charles S. Cahvell Says: ''Plan
As usual, The Corn Exchange, published by the Corn IKcltniige Na
tional Hank of this city, In Its latest number bristles with practical, pro
gressive Information on a variety of subjects, eo.'y olio of which Is ait
appeal to the citizens of Philadelphia. The' foreword, ocr tho signa
ture of the bank's president, Charles i. Cain ell, Is particular l.v oppor
tune. It says:,
"It Is natural for business to hesitate under present conditions. Hut
do not let us hesitate too long nor expect in the near future to see pi Ices
back to a pre-war basis. Trices will decline, but remember for four
j cars, as every one knows, tho principal nations of tho world have been
producing little for general use, consuming and destroying rnurli. liven
today In many countries little Is being made, much Is still being dpsttojed.
"Pan for business, flguro tin a closer margin of profit, and If ilo
mest "lines are light, look to foreign Melds. Poods nre high, lliercforn
nil our labor should be quickly emplojcd on a fair basis. American busi
ness men solved the problems of war; tho problems of peace should not
scare us. Plan for business."- ,
