Financial News and Stock Market Quotations
$655,000,000 Is Derived,
I Prices Bdhg Very High,
I Says Holland.
m Shortly after th? European war be
f fan, the cotton planters of the South
I found themaHvM seriously MabaN
r rassed by financial conditions such
*s made It Impossible to market the
cotton. A nationwide movement be
**n, typined by the expression: "Buy
a bale of cotton." Some Sf the plant
ers were fearful leet ruin overtake
thera. Proposals were made that the
government should come to their aid
end some of the bankers advocated
the raising of a large sura of money
for the purpose of buying or pro
tecting this cotton.
This was not quite four years ago.
How rreat the change In the cotton
situation bus been Is shown by the
official report Just Issued by the au
thority of Mr. Redfleld. Secretary
of Commerce, which eets forth the
relation of the cotton planters of
the South to the world markets In
the twelvs months which ended on
June 30.
In that Ume 4.500,000 bales of cotton
w*re exported. This was about 1,000.
^ bales less than were exported
la the previous year, but the falling
off has been more than msde up by
the hifh prices obtained for cotton.
Th* total was |W?.oo<xon<\ This, ex
clusive of the by-products of cotton,
is one of the largest?If not the larg
est?sums of money sver received for
a cotton harvest.
Oil By-Presets.
One of the by-products of cotton?
oil?provided almost a hundred mil
lion pounds for export and this was
about sixty million pounds less than
was exported the previous year.
Th<*se exports of cotton and Its by
products and the domestic market for
?-otton and .Its by-products must In
the aggregate represent not far from
_a billion dollars as a money return for
the cotton harvest of last year.
This figure is only an estimate and
we will not be able to learn for some
time precisely what the money return
for the cotton harvest, including by
products In th* past fiscal year. was.
It is a curious fact that our exports
of cotton in the past fiscal year were
of a money value of thirty-two mil
l.on dollars in excess of the money
value of our exports of breadstuffs.
Cotton and breadstuffs toegther
which were exported In the past fiscal
year yielded approximately $3,390,000,
?X?>.
Mr. ffosver's View.
Apparently Mr. Hoover is of the
opinion that the United States In the
present fiscal year will be sble to send
to our allies in Europe and to other
nations an even greater amount of
foodstuffs than was sent to them in
the year which ended on June last.
Tiie latest estimate of a portion of
our grain harvest fixes the amount
of wheat In husitels for this year at a
little under 900,000.000 bushels. It
seems to be certain that we are not
to secure a harvest of a billion bi.sh
cls. but those who are well informed
are of the opinion that the ^.'hcat
harvest this year will be one of the
argfst ever garnered. 8o ajao vU
he "the harvest of oatfc. "roe taxesr
m ports from the com belts tend to
vistffy the hope that by reason of re
cent rains the corn harvest will be
v*ry large, prohably in excess of 3.
'?*?M00 bushels. Much of the corn
will be converted into meat products,
such as hogs and beef.
There seems to have been a time
-?ome months ago when Mr. Hoover
??nd others, who were well 'nfermed,
were apprehensive of a serious scar
city of food needed for our soldiers
and our allies But now Mr. Hoover
has deemed it worth while to make
the announcement, cautious a* he is.
that the danger of food scarcity has
passed.
It must be that he relies, first, upon
abundant harvests In the United
States, snd. second, upon the partial
If not complete elimination of the
danfrer of the submarine.
Great Export* Will Continue.
Some of those who have given
much thought to the subject are
of the opinion that even after the
war is ended and the demand of
our allies for munitions of war and
for food Is greatly curtailed, never
theless there is to be maintained a
very large export trade.
It will be made up chiefly of those
commodities which are needed in re
constructing railroads, devasU-<l vil
lages and towns. It will probably
requlre st least ten years after
the war is ended for Europe and
? Treat Britain to be fairly well re
stored to conditions which would
hare reflected normal times before
the war.
Much of the material needed for
this work will be secured In the
United States. Some of the lead
ing bankers sny that the government
Itself will be able to facilitate tho
srrsnting of necessary credit to
tl\ose nations which will enter our
markets for commdoittes needed for
peaceful pursuits.
The war has taught our people,
so it Is said, that we are to be a
great lender of money to foreign na
tion*. Before ths wsr a few com
paratively small Investments In for
eign obligations were made in the
United States. Now the obligations
of other nations to us amount to
several billions.
Sometimes apprehension has been
expressed lest the soldiers who re
turn after the war may not easily
adjust tbemselvss to pescefu! condi
tions. But the best opinion seems
to be that the soldiers will find abun
dant opportunity for employment.
There will be a great deal of work
entailed by railroad expansion and
construction.
There will be Industrial work in
plenty.
Moreover, .the veterans of this day
recall how. as though almost by
magic, the l.CuO.OOO soldiers of the
Union army st the close of the civil
war In ISfiS at once became private
citizens, resuming their plsces in in
dustries and other employments, so
that the Union army vanished as It
were almost in a moment.
Precisely thie readjustment to peace
conditions will characterize the re
turn of the 2.000,000 or 3.000.000 sol
diers is France after tho war la
ended.
All of the leading financiers speak
in terms of encouragement and of
gratification, not only of present
financial conditions, but of the out
look for the financial sltsatlon which
will arise sfter the wsr is ended.

Here'* the latest efficiency feature in aircraft production. The motorcycle is standard equipment
on this reconnaissance machihc, its object being for use where a landing is made on the outskirts of a
city or in the country. Heretofore the aviator had either to telephone Tor help or trust that a passing
automobile would take him into a tow n or station. This idea was originated by Glenn Martin, aviator
and airplane builder for the United State* government.

Big Earnings for Quarter
Makes Upward Price
Trend on Street.
By BROADAX WAI.I*
New York. July SI.?Sotcks responded
in a dignified manner today to the re
port of the l'nlt?d State? Bte^l earn
ing!!. Stock of that corporation was
tba logical leader and showed an ad
vance of about two points in the
morning.
Mexican Petroleum was the only
other stock of importance to make as
much of a gain, although soveral spe
cialties. Such as I*urns Brothers, Loose
Wiles, International Taper nnd Corn
Products showed sign* of accumula
tion.
Allis Chalmers was strong.
The gas stocks enjoyed something of
a boom as a result of an increase of
rate to be charged by the People's Gas
Company in Chicago.
General Motors and American Su
matra, both of which stocks have
been cornered for several months#
were heavy, declining more tl^an four
points each. The close was steady at
about best prices.
Many brokers in sending out the
monthly statements to customers fix
ed the carrying rato for stocks at 7
per cent. In fact, that rate is likely
to become the usual one in the stock
market. It is not so high as it se?sfns.
for stocks yielding anything much on
the dividend market.
Still to Earn More.
The steel report of $153.000.0M> earned
for the second quarter is to l>e fol
lowed, steel men say. with a report
even better for the third -quarter. The
public is overlooking the extra charges
on certain class stock. The average
price of steel products is higher than
it was a Jtf>ar ago?that is it Is higher
than the prices actually received for
products delivered. The fancy quo
tations on orders being placed were
never realised for a very large ton
nage, as the companies had so many
orders on their books taken at ldw
prices.
And besides the world Is bare of
steel for domestic use and Germany
is never again to be allowed to make
steel on a large scale.
The advance granted today by the
Illinois State Commission of 27V4 per
cent on gas rates is supposed to put
the gas companies just where they
were before the war. Action In re
gard to rates in New York City will
therefore be watched with interest
by all market traders.
\?w In I.ondon Hands.
Mexican Petroleum is being
handled as if getting ready for the
annual report, which at first read
ing is-expected to be something of
a shock to Wall Street, as all esti
mates df the earnings, even the
small ones, are believed to be higher
than the fact.
Four years ago the stock ex
chang* was closed because of tha
outbreak of tha war. The world was
in a pftnic and fortunes were kicked
about tha gutters In Wall 8treet.
because everybody wan afraid to
pick them up. International stock
trading stopped. Today it was re-1
sumed for ha first time. Before
the war Germany dominated trading
between America and Europe. Now
it is in the hands of London.
