Merchants have much complaint re
garding the unseasonable weather for the
season and the slow moving of heavy
goods. As a result they have not made
sales on a basis of expectations ana
have - frequently been forced to borrow
to meet bills.
Offerings cf local securities as collat

the fact that there is comparatively little

WALL STREET GOSSIP
It Is true that the common and pre
ferred stock of the Washington Railway
and Electric Company are practically on
a par, but the preferred is a 6 per cent
cumulative proposition and preferred as
to claims on assets.
Therefore, the difference In lending
values of J3 a share as quoted above.

the week or the month.
No oneTseems' to know any more about
It to-day than months ago. It la not a
Gimble proposition, nor a Wannamaker

the removal of some midway tenants.
"They say" that "presldet W. V. Cox

Commissioner in the event of Mr. Wil
Clearly the feature ot the operation on
'Change yesterday was the breaking,
under persistent force of Capital Trac
tion to IS. where there were sales and
where the stock was offered at the close
with 12 bid. It has taken persistent
and directed effort to break the stock
from 13 7-8 to 1M. yet a 200-share lot of
stoclc was sufficient, peddled out day by
day, with a willingness to double the
amount "short sales." '
Another feature was the fact that
Railway preferred was offered at S3 3-4.
with 89 1-3 bid, 89 3-4 bid for the common
and 90 asked.
With investors holding off. with share
holders upset by much "merger" talk
and selling part of holdings, it Is easy
to bear values.
Washington Gas shows fairly good
strength, moving up to 86 1-2, with at tA
asked and St 1-4 bid as the final quota
tion.' All things considered. It certainly looks
aa if the official proxy committee would
not have all things its own way for the
February election. There are going to be
outside candidates for positions on the
directory and a certainty of some perti
nent questions being asked at the share
holders meeting. It Is nearly four
months away, but It will roll around-
time always does, be It sixty or ninety
days or a term of yesrs.

There is a difference between a "mer
ger" and an "absorption." The Wash
ington Utilities Company, when launch
ed, will not make the slightest effort to
merge anything. It may have something
to say about buying this or that stock
eitncr privately r in tne open market.
It is claimed by some local security
brokers that flirtation has been started
with some old companies.
WASHINGTON STOCK MARKET.
The directors of the North Capitol
Savings Bank met last night and dis
cussed plans for the formal opening of
the bank on Saturday night. The di
rectors agreed to be on hand to assist
the officers in giving the youngest sav
ings bank an auspicious opening, snares
have double liability clause.
Officials are counting on large deposits
from the employes of the Government
Printing Office, coming as the opening
does hj -npTt (jay arter pay oay.
The Park Savings Bank has Inaugu
rated a club system, depositors paying
in small sums for "a little Christmas
fund" or larger small sums, for a pe
riod much longer, for a "Panama Expo
sition In 1313 Fund."
The clubs are known as "Christmas
Thrift" and "Panama Exposition" clubs.
Here Is the way It Is done and the
subscriptions to date to each fund,
which may be drawn any time, have
reached important figures:
Clubs of Class A are composed of
members who pay 1 cent the first week,
2 cents the second week, 3 cents the
third week. Increasing the payment by
1 cent each succeeding week.
In saving tor Christmas. 1912. there
will be thirty-six payments, the final
one being 36 cents. The withdrawal
value of the saving, the first week in
next December, will be 3868 and 3 per
If a Panama Exposition fund be de
sired, the payments will continue
124 weeks longer, 1C0 weeks In all, the
final payment being 31.60. The with
drawal value of this saving will be 312$.-
and 3 tier cent interest.
Clubs of Class B are composed of
members who pay 2 cents the first week,
4 cents the second week, 6 cents the
third week. Increasing the payment by
2 cents each succeeding week. Thirty
six payments (the final one at 72 cents)
would have a withdrawal value of J13.22,
and 3 per cent interest, for next Christ
mas. One hundred and sixty payments
(the final one at 33J!0) would have a
withdrawal value of 3237.60, and 3 per
cent Interest, as a Panama Exposition
fund In 1913.
Clubs of Class C are composed of
members who pay E cents the first week,
10 cents the second week, 15 cents the
third week. Increasing the paymentby
8 cents each succeeding week. Thirty
six payments (the final one at 31.80)
would hate a withdrawal value of 333.30,
and 3 per cent Interest, for next Christ
mas. One hundred and sixty payments
(the final one at 38) would have a with
drawal value cf 3644, and 3 per cent In
terest, as a Panama Exposition fund In
If it suits the member's convenience
the payments may begin wtth the larg
est amount ot the class and decrease
each succeeding week, thereby making
the saving easier as It progresses. Or
if it is preferred to pay an even amount
each week two subscriptions 4n the-same
class may be taken, one beginning with
the smallest amount and Increasing
weekly, and the other beginning with
the 'largest amount and decreasing
weekly. For example. In Class A for the
Panama Exposition fund, wherein the
smallest amount is 1 cent and the larg
est amount is 3160, the even weekly
payment-of 31-61 would maintain both
subscriptions throughout the series, and
at the end of ICO weeks would reach the
sum of 3237.00. exclusive of Interest.
