THE WASHINGTON HERALD, TUESDAY, APRIL 14; "1914.
Steel Breaks Through 60 and
POLITICS & INVESTMENT
Lack of Confidence in Congress.
Local Exchange Active Diitrict
Tax Money Committee.
The New York stock market yesterday
continued Its decline. Steel Anally broke
through 60. catching many atop loss or
ders and closing at 59"4.
Copper Reading. Union Northern, and
Pennsylvania were all off.
General Motors and Guggenheim were
the only stocks to show gains. The for
mer was up four points, crossing SO and
closing at S1H-
The further depression on Steel stock
from its break or Saturday continued
the feature of the market throughout
the trading. Its decline through 60 short
ly after the opening was due to the ac
cumulation of liquidating orders over
Sunday rom Its unfavorable statement
on the heavy decrease In the amount of
unfilled orders on hand from a month
ago"7 and also the unfavorable trade re
ports. A great many stop loss orders were
reached at 60. causing It to sell down to
fsy. From that price there was a rally
to 60 on covering of shorts, after which
renewed liquidation carried the price
down to the new low record for some
time, from which there as no rally In
the late trading.
The weakness of this stock had a domi
nating influence over the balance of the
Sentiment among the great majority Of
the trading element Is now unquestion
ably bearish. The very disappointing ac
tion of the market lately, and particu
larly the slump In Steel and the pessi
mistic views of some of the leading trade
authorities on the situation and outlook
for that industry, chiefly has been re
sponsible for this development, notwith
standing the continuance of cheap money
Politic Ilnd Effects.
Traders believe no permanent rally cin
be expected preceding increased railroad
rates and an adjournment of Congress.
Much importance, in the meantime, is
Kit en to the pending tolls Alight In the
Senate Should the President pass the
Houte bill it would be an Indication that
he will be able to put through the antitrust-legislation
now being drawn by At
tornev General McReynolds. These meas
ures are said to be of a mild corrective
nature and they will not be objectionable
to the legitimate business Interests of
On the other hand the defeat of the
tolls bill means the President has lost
control or Congress, only his veto power
remaining to prevent drastic legislation
from being enacted.
Guardian" of the Institution who. these
riajh. are deploring the usurpation of
legislative powers by the President, are
met with the reply that a point has been
reached when that co-operation between
the executive and legislative branches
intended by the Constitution cannot be
maintained. It is either the President's
holding the whiphand or Congress mn
ning the country and there Is no doubt
under the present administration as to
which Is the more desirable.
Pulillr Interest Lucking".
Brokers and traders complain of a lack
of interest In the market on the part
of the public This, however, is a very
natural condition In existing circum
stances There is nothing to attract pub
On a sharp decline some people might
buy on the ground that stocks were
cheap, but there Is nothing at present
to attract attention to the cheapness of
securities, and the public never buys
on a large scale unless there Is some
thing either In the way of a decline or
an advance to stimulate its Interest.
Only a comparatively few buy on de
clines What causes eager bulng Is a
sustained advance. Once let reasonably
plausible stories about big winnings by
this or that speculator get started and
there will be thousands trying to emulate
his success So long, however, as prices
hardly mov e and it is Impossible for any
one to make big profits only an ex
ceedingly small proportion of the gen
eral public will take an interest.

f'otton Crop Importance.
With the cotton planting season almost
upon us and the prospect of an acreage
of about 3S.000.000. or about 2.000,000 acres
more than the government's figures ot
last ear, and with a condition of winter
wheat nearly ten points above the aver
age over an area estimated at approxi
mately 35.000.000 acres at the beginning
of this month, the future of the railroads
as respects agricultural tonnage Is at
this date fairly bright. With other spring

to do her part While cotton forms but

I.els Johnson Co Those on the
Inside In Tobacco affairs express opinion
that action of borlllsrd Compsny In an
nouncing It will sell all Jobbers In the
Ne York district at same rate as Metro
politan Tobacco 'ompan Is first step to
ward settlement 01 .1 ff renews between the
Department of Justi.r nd th- Metropoli
tan Tobacco Compan) Hiatus of the Lorll
lard and the Liggett companies, as far as
local lobbing business Is concerned, is now
identical American Tobai co Company
already has offered to sell its own brand.
In other words, has agreed to act as Its
own Jobber In case this course Is not
fcund to be satisfactory American Com
pany has been giving consideration to
plan for handling of Its brands In New
York City by some new company In
other word, the three largest selling to
bacco manufacturing concerns operating
In New York have either broken away
from the Metropolitan Company, as ex
clusive jobber, or made plans to that end.
This is the reason for belief that gov
ernment action against the Metropolitan
Company will be unneceesar)
The Evening Wisconsin says People
who want parcel post to be h success
will do well perhap" to remember that a
cat may have a litter of kittens so larre
that It Is beyond her capacity to tear
them to stalwart strength
Postmaster General Burleson would do
better to concentrate his attention u-on
making parcel post within reasonable
limits in which it was contemplated by
Its originators a permanent success than
to pile up new responsibilities with reck
less assurance, beyond tho power of his
department to meet them There is a
world of difference between the national
limit of parcel post, as a handy carriT
of packages for the people and the
socialistic dieam of the government tak
ing over the transportation business
Even the crowding out of the egpre-s
companies need not necessarily follow the
operation of the Postornce Department In
Its new field, for there Is a gread leal of
business that Is outside of the legitimate
province of parcel post and well within
that of the express companies. As for
the Burleson notion of the Poslofflce De
partment taking over the telephone and
telegraph companies. It Indicates a vis
ionary disposition and suggests the
schoolboy whose "eye Is bigger than his
stomach." and who surrourrds himself
at the retaurant with a great many more
eatables than he can possibly consume,
and who sometimes eats too much and
suffers the pangs of indigestion
