M M f ' w f h i. 4 J' f' i; ". a a GOSSlIP OF r f " BANKER EXPLAINS NEED - ni? j a Ftnr? ssta mi it a tihn , V -Xe. p Uncertainty Believed to be Demand for Materials Gossip of the Street V, ACCORDING to n AelUlnformcd banker, whnt this couutrjr needs more Ai Ihnn stabilization of uteri or otli'er prices is nn aMiirnnrr of the tn f billzatlon of labor. Of what iihi. he asked, is it to attempt to stabilize the prices of any product when the conditions of labor are unstable? Stable f" labor conditions, he remarked, ore necessary to the development of a demand J for nil the materials used In construction processes. There hnvc been reduc f tlons in the prices of many building materials going on quietly, but not suffl ' dent, ho said, to cause much enthusiasm nmonp; builders and contractors. There is, however he ndded, something which is holding back many projects which should be under way. He said he djd not believe it altogether the result of waiting for much t 'lower prices fpr material, but was largely due to the, element of uncertainty in the labor situation. The government, he said, has urged that public works i 'he started and pushed to the limit so ns to give employment, especially to returning soldiers; but little ov nothing seems to hnvc been accomplished , nlong these lines. Kvrn borne of the government's own projects are being held up. This Is the ease, he said, especially with the Emergency Tleet Corporation, which was to construct some huge drydocks among other things, and although bids have been asked for ilnd received, nothing has been done. ThN can be understood, he remarked, in the case of municipal improve ments, since to carry these out most of the municipalities would have to raise the money through bond issues, nnd naturally they do not wish to compete with the government during the Victory T.oun campaign. Hut, he bald, he could not convince himself thut the renon for holding back so many neces ( sary projects lay In the cost of materials, nnd from information received he , believed n good deal of the apathy nroc from the doubt ns to what stand labor is going to tuke in the near future. Outcome of Steel Conference Anticipated The outcome of the steel conference in New York on Thursday wbs to n great ("ttent anticipated by many financiers in this eity. One broker re marked that the reports on the mutter showed plainly that the whole affair was largely the result of rnliinet familj row where the order of precedence was not strictb observed by the industrlnl board members. He snid the whole affair, when simmered down, rcsohed itself into some questions of fact, which the result of the conference will soon determine. Now that Itailrond Director (Jeucral Hincs hn decided to appenl to the open mnrket as a court of Inst resort, he said, it will be ycru if he will get lower bid for his rails and other equipment than the steel men maintained the could offer without a reduction in wages. It is not generally regarded, said this broker, that the Rtecl manufacturers will t the present time attempt to reduce the cost of their product by the wage route if any other plan is practicable. Auother broker said the strange thing to him is how there can be such a wide difference of opinion if the facts given to the public in the contro versy are us stnted. Mr. Hincs. and his representatives argue that the costs of scrap and coke limp been reduced so much recently Hint the stabilized prices agreed upon at the former conference were nbunrmolly high and hae not been arrived nt with u due regard to these reductions, nnd that the steel companies would, if allowed these prices, still be mnklug the enormous profits which they made in wnrtimes. In other words, the steel companies would be profiteering at the expense of the public, who will be taxed to make up the deficits of the rnilrouds. Continuing, he said be was afraid thut personalities, wh'ch should not he allowed to enter the controversy, had beclouded the Issue, and in that event the conclusion nrricd at bj Director Hincs to try the open market will ioon show Who is right. Open Steel Market Will Speed iSeiv Business One of the partners of n. large bunking house snid that the action of the steel stocks jesterduy was evidence thut the result of the decision by Director Hincs had no unfavorable effect ou the market; in fact, the reverse seemed to be the case. The lime hnd come, hesnid, when steel producers were, determined on a campaign for new business, and this decision will only speed it up. He did not, think there would be any great reductions from the stabilized prices, but the great object gained is that something deliuitc has been done; there will no longer be any reason to wait, and the moment consumers realize this they will stock up. Stocks of steel were never lower than at present, lie said. "There is just a possibility thnt we may hear of lower prices for n little while," he remarked, "but that will he only temporary, ns the present high cost of production precludes .the policy of price-cutting to any appre ciable extent. The moment the situation is thoroughly understood, he said, there will begin a strong bujiug movement lit steel products. In connection with Director Hines's statement that, he will at once calls for bids for 200,000 tons of rails, it brought out a remark from n broker that the United States Steel Corporation is in u position to secure the whole order if it wants to, and he gue that for a reason for the bullishness ou United States Steel common. Financiers Confident Philadelphia Will Go 'Over Loan Quota Today is the last day of the Victory Loan campaign. Notwithstanding the large amount remaining to be subscribed, it would be difficult to find one who believes Philadelphia will default. Yesterday the atmosphere in the financial district was tense with ex- pectation; today it will be morn so, and will continue until the stroke of . midnight. Tho real situation may not be known for several days, but a air approximation of the result will appear in Sunday's papers. There will he a sigh of relief in banks and financial institutions when it is all over, and the knowledge that it is the Inst Ioau will add- to the satisfaction. t Many of the investment banking houses huve been prepnring for an ' aggresshc selling campaign to begin on Monday morning. In the course of the following week it is expected many new issues, some of them un usually attractive, will be placed on the market. During the interval of the Victory Loan campaign u number of the larger investment concerns have been adding to their sules forces and in other ways strengthening their or ganizations. A number of these houses have called special meetings of their salesmen for today. One well-k.uown house now has an organization of more than sixty persons. All of this goes to show thnt the Victory Loon campaign has not ex hausted the free money waiting for investment nnd which it is reported exists in every section of the country. The manager of one, of these houses remarked that in many instances their former methods of obtaining business must undergo great changes. The Liberty Loans, he said, hnd altered the whole investment field. "Our future customers will not be found among the few select Wealthy only," he said. "We are going to dig right down to the strata where the money exists in comparatively smul' amounts, but in stupendous sums in the aggregate. Then another new idea has been taught successfully by the Liberty Loans. It Is the installment idea as applied to investments. "It -is true," he remarked, "that the ideu is not new in Kurope, es pecially In France, but It is new here, and it seems to have taken root. The baby' bond, the installment plan of purchase and the. multitude of clients instead of a few," lie said, "would revolutionize the investment business in X? United States." gp tfiSL Short-term notes were firm jestcrday, with an active demand for a number of jjpeciul issues, while some of the more important maturing for eign government sliort'trrm notes were fractionally higher. kr ,,, There wus u good inquiry for government of Bwltze'gjnd fis, which were (I!) 11-10 bid; American Foreign Securities (is and Canada 0s, which also . commanded the game bid quotation,- BUSINESS NOTES $ Commercial failures (his wCeli in the Uqltcd SljBteSjflre 1110, the same number nsjnst week nnd compare with -11 the corresponding week Inst jcar.

A danco TV1H-IUI1UWJ' ffiffftlNCr PUBLIC ADJUSTMENT IN STEEL' SATISFIES THE TRADE No Further Incentive to Keep Out of Market for Future Roqui iromonts New York, May 10. As forecast in these columns n week ago, the steel manufacturers' committee stood firmly on their ground on prices in the dis pute with the railroad administration, nnd ns u result the conference which was held here on Thursday resulted in n fnilurc to reach n new agreement. The representatives of the railroad admin istration also held their ground, and it was announced thut competitive bids would be taken shortly for '.'00.000 tons of steel rails. Steel men. generully, arc of opiniop that the outcome 'of the dispute linsj been satisfactory. As n matter of fact, the leaders in the industry light nlong have maintained that they were in a position to meet nny readjustment that must come, nnd It is known thnt the matter of making nn agreement with governmental bodies met with consider able opposition when it was first pro posed. One point which has been njndo for cibly is thnt the uncertainties which have prevailed since the dispute arose have been removed, nnd that regular consumers, knowing .thut the steel men are determined to hold for what they bclie'-Bw.VfVfnir nnd reasonable level, will have no further incentive to keep out of the market for their futuic re quirements. There bus been some talk that with the price agreement abrogated quota tions will ndvnnce cvcntuallv, but in this connection one of the best posted .. ... ... . , . . .... nuinormcs ill inn iraue siaies mat lie can see no possibility of higher levels nt least for the remainder of the year. He asserts thnt the prices prevailing at present nre fair and there would be no ground for making any advances at this time. The opinions which have been heard recently that within n few months the demand for steel products will exceed the supply is ridiculed by this au thority, who points out that the capac ity of the industry lias been increased materially during the war, and thnt it will take a peace demand much larger than the buying during the wur to absorb the present ingot capacity, which is approximately -10,000,000 gross tons per jcar. In some circles it is the expectation that the latest developments will re sult in a resumption of bujing for many products nnd the future is being awaited with considerable interest by ul I observers. That there bus been n large amount of business held in nbey- ance is the general belief in the trade, nnd if this hold-up business is sent to the mills in the form of definite con ttnets, the outlook will be much better than it bus been in some time. With regard to the competitive bid ding for the rail orders for the govern ment it is stated in some circles that only the United Slates Steel Corpora tion can afford to put in proposals at S4i per ton for Hessemer and ?47 per ton for open-henrth, nnd that all other makers hftvc a cost In excess of these figures. This would mean thnt the cor poration is in a position to get the entire order if its officials desire it. The production of steel ingots in April was the smallest since January of 1018, when the plants of the country were curtailed by the cold weather und the coal shortage. The percentage of operation figures given in these col umns from time to time during April have been borne out by the ingot state ment. However, should bujing be re humed. us ninny now expect, the coming months should show increases over the total recorded in April.
