Property Custodi-an Seizes
Half of German Estates.
Says Holland.
In hi? Informs1 talk to a fsw friends
who wer? his hosts at a luncheon ln
thla city a day or two ago. A. Mitchell
Palmer itated that h? has now In his
possession aa custodia* of alien
property about ????.???,???. All this
has bean secured since hia ap
pointment to the office of custodian
of alien property, an office which
was created by an act of Congress
last year. But. Mr. Pal mer said.
M00.009,ooo are only g little more
than one-half of tbe total amount
which he expect? to secure and
to hold ln his possession until
after the war. He said to his friends
that his estimate Is that the money
tbe United States Is not far from
fl. 000.000,000. His organization Is now
so well perfected and the means
which b? haa adopted to secure In
formation respecting alien property
are ao adequata that he 1? convinced
that withm a few months ther? will
be tn hia possession as custodian sub
stantially all of the alien property
held in the United Stata? and that
this will amount to SI, 000.000,000 st
Mr. Palmer's investigation? lad to
the discovery of an unsuspected
method adopted by German capital
and German Interests for obtaining
gradually but surely complete con
trol of many important Industries in
the United States These methods he
spoKe of as insidious. skillfully
planned and. in the majority of cases,
successful y adopt?**.
< natam?mg* Representatives.
To illustrate his meaning he aaid
that he had discovered that when
German capital and German inter
est? had in mind the establishment
of the important industry in the
United States and one which would
be ?able successfully to compete
with any like American Industry, a
skillful and competent man, com
paratively younfr. would be sent to
the United States for the purpose
of promoting the establishment of a
new Industry, for Instance, the man
ufacture of tools, and especially of
iberniceli? and drugs. This rep
r?sentative ha\ ing organized a com
pany saw to it that at least eighty
per tvnt of the capital stock was
held usual ly under cover in Ger
r.\r.ny. The man who promoted the
-try would himself hold per
?ap? with a few unsuspecting
.Vmcricans. not more than twenty
per c^nt'of the capital stock. This
entativ? usually professed it
to he his determination to make the
United States his home and Mr. Pal

' Ita! He alao had a further purpo?e
which he mentioned for the first time
I in thi? Informal talk. There are
many Americana who have claim?
: asainat citiiens or corporation? in
Germany. Of course theae claim?
have been held up since the beginning
of the war. There la ? suspicion that
some of them have been confilecatetl
by the German ?rcicernment since the
; United State? entered the war.
Now Mr. Palmer contemplates using
' the money which he receive? for the
i ?ale of theae German properties to
' liquidate the claim? of American citi
sene againat citisene or corporation?
In Germany. He la of the opinion
that in thia way all of these claim?
can be liquidated speedily, although,
of course. American creditore will be
compelled to offer satisfactory proof
of the Justice of their claims. If thia
plan be carried out then within a
few months alien property, which has
paased Into Mr. Palmer's possession.
i will be used to pay American claim?
; against Germany, so that when the
I time of peace discussion comes that
? claim will have no part In the dle
! cu?sion. German citizen? and German
! corporation? must in their own way
j and at home tmon, themselves Ilqui
I date these claims if that can be done.
I At all eventa their property will be
lawfully used by Mr. Palmer u> pay
American claims.

Few Specialties Display
Freakish Weakness
During Lull.
New York, Sep. 17.?While a tow
specialties displayed freakish weak
ness today, the stock market as a
whole wa? quiet and strong. The
weakness was only in the mor ni ??
and evidently was b.osed on announce
ment from Washington that the army
would require some seven billion dol
laro more than had been expected.
This f? America's answer to the
Kaiser's request for a peace con
ference. In the afternoon rumor of thy;
Kaiser's abdication came from ?Lon
don and while nobody believed It, it
waa commented on as at least some
thing sensible and no doubt Influenced
the buying?the very slight buying,
necessary to advance prices.
So drill was the market that be
tween 1 o'clock and 1.15 p. m. there
were only 1.600 sha res of st ocks dealt
In. At one time the/e was an in
terval of five minutes between hun
dred share sales. A few bonds came
out in this Interval, but there was a
two minute interval In which the
ticker did not move at all. Such a
condition is beyond all precedent in
Wall street In recent years. It per
suades many observers that the mar
ket is well sold out. But In spite
of this, there are traders who insist
that big news will come from Wash
ington on Saturday or perhaps Friday
night that will cause free selling
again. Several are known to have
sold stocks In expectation of some
development of this Rind.
Amerleas. flnnntrn Weak.
Weakness of American Sumatra at
tracted much attention because the
?short interest In it Is said to be small,
vepy little having been sold short on
the recent decline. That the trouble
is with that stock In particular and
not with the tobacco group was proved
by the firmness of tobacco products
In General Motors there was a break
of 4M points due to the fact that
stockholders of the Chevrolet Com
pany will meet on October It to vote
for dissolution of that company. All
its property has already passed to the
Cenerai Motors Company with the ex
ception of General Motor? stock
which Is to be distributed to the stock
holders of Chevrolet through the act
of dissolution. This will furnish such
a large supply of General Motors
stock that persons who are still short
of it may cover with ease. The corner
is a thing of the past.
Mexican Petroleum and Texas were
both strong features in the after
Distillers gained strength because
the company Intends to sell nineteen
of it? distilleries on October 1. there
by relieving itself of the burden of
carrying them. The company has the
larsest cash holding In its "hlstury.
Unconfirmed report said that one
important railroad system had signed
th? tontract with the government and
had secured some modifications.
