Check Morning Advance And Cause Set-back to Whole List. Br BROADAW WALL New York. July 30.?Profession al traders are heavily short of the I stock market and made a desperate fl*ht today to save themselves. They} took full advantage of another meeting: of the Federal Reserve, Board at Washington and circulat ed rumors that worried the street. Not only did they succeed in check-i ?ng the advance that was started in the morning but they caused a ma- i terial setback in the^ whole list.' Only a few stocks maintained strength throughout the session. These were the Tobaccos and some specialties. U. S. Steel, which was a leader in the morning, joined the declining column in the last hour trading. The close was thorough ly active and almost weak. Those banking interests who take an optimistic view of th*> situation looked upon today an another op portunity to pick up bargains. The leadership of Steel prqved elusive, | but there was no doubt as to who was willing to buy tobacco shares. I After the market closed, the Re- 1 aerve Board repeated its statement i during the day in such a positive manner that it could not be mis understood. and the normal result must be a scurrying of shorts for cover. The strong feature of the Steel shares Is that they have spent so mufh money in the last four years making extensions that they will not have to spend any worth while for Ave or six years at least. That leaves them to pay out in dividends ! practically everything they *arn. If the U. S. Steel directors care to do so they will be able to pay an extra dividend at the end of this year, j The buying in strel is high class, and reactions such as today are welcome by the people who are J buying. B. M. Baruch said a sood thing j for the coal stocks t ' :y, without perhaps intending it. !#? stated that Kurope was in a3 n :eh danger of freezing to death next winter as starving. This is official confirma tion of the reports that have been current in Wall Street about the situation abroad. There i? ? 'irpent demand for every ton of coal that Americans can ship, and by the same token there Is a demand for every barrel of oil that can be ex-j portr-d from the United States or Mexico. CURB MARKET.

Phone Main 8458 and 8459 STOCK GAMBLING For a lifetime I have preached the evil of Ftock gambling, privately, publicly, with tongue and pan, in the press and mafa zwes, and from the platform and before the State and National Legislative Committees. I might as well have been atomising hell fires with pasoline. Today the whole American people are stock gambling as never before; Merchants, Miners and Manufacturers; Editors, Educators and Ecclesiastics; Senators, Statesmen and Scientists; Congressmen, Confidence Men and Chorus G.rls; Lawyers, Laborers and Liplu House Keepers; Judges, Juggler* and Jitney Men; Doctors, Dancers and Dressmakers; Blacksmiths, Butchers and Bartenders; Actors, Astronomers and Architects; Fanners Florists and Financiers; men, women and children, white, black and yellow, of every class, creed and condition, from one end of the country to the other, and from the Pacific to the Atlantic, are right now frenziedly stock gambling. Heretofore, there has been more or less hypocrisy about stock gambling. Some salved their corscience by pretending to invest others that their stock buys and sells was business, while stil) others carried on their stock gambling surreptitiously. Since the Government educated 20 million Liberty Loaners to the use of Bonds as stock gambling markers All America has thrown pre tense to the wind*, and, like the hordes of Monte Carlo, only asK to get their bets down. EVERYONE GAMBLING It is useless to attempt denial that the American people are :n the midst of a frenzied gamble with bu. one thought, how to get rich quickly?how to get something .for nothing. Hare is proof that nearly all the people are gambling. Business, since war, has grown on the New York Stock Ex change from 100,000 to 2,000,000 shares daily?from 10 million dol lars to 200 million dollars daily. The bulk of all the money of the country today is employed in stock gambling, when before the war but a small fraction was so employed. Before the war brokerage houses were discharging help for want of work to keep them busy. Today, for the first time ir stock gambling, all trading is suspended on all stock exchanges Saturdays to enable business to catch up. ^ All stock brokers' offices are crowded to suffocation during trading hours and not one in 33 of the stock gamblers crowding them knows the difference between a stock certificate and a dog license. There have bo;n more new. millionaires made in the past three years than since the country was born. There has been more new wealth created in the stock market since the beginning of war than for a'l time previously. OLD GAMBLING WAY The reason for the present frenzied condition Is: Before the war, stock markets were made by Bankers, Promoters and Brokers on one side and a comparatively few stock gamblers on the other. To gamble In stocks one must put up money for margins The thrifty, canny American people had never been educated to draw their savings from the bank and stocking and turn them over to the brokers Therefore, stock gambling was confined to the few who knew the game, and these few, after their gambling appetites had been whet ted by those who run the stock gambling game?the Banker, Broker and Promoter, would buy stocks, thereby making a bull raafket, bar stocks until they became overloaded, when the ones who ?old to tbet*. it high prices would call to the money loaned and stock prices would go tumbling and the overloaded gamblers would be frozen out at bot tom, where the market would re?t until a new crop of sucker gam blers would appear Thus it was that the history of the stock msrke? was a continuous series of ups and downs and always the gamblers ost and always the brokers, etc., won. NEW "LIBERTY?"' GAMBLING WAY AFTER the GOVERNMENT HAD INDUCED 20 MILLIONS OF AMERICANS TO PART WITH THEIR SAVINGS FOR LIBERTY 30NDS THESE 20 MILLIONS OF PEOPLE SUDDENLY FOUND ' iHEMSELVES EQUIPPED FOR THE GREATEST GAMBLING! >AME ON EAF.TH, NOT ONLY HAD TUEY THE MARKERS TO ! 'LAY 1HK GAME BUT THEIE APPETITES HAD BEEN WHET 'ED BY THE STORIES OF THE OVERNIGHT RISE TO FABU .OUS WEALTH OF THEIR NEIGHBORS. With the advent of billions of "Libertys" and their owners intp he stock market the whole gambling game efctngfd. No longer ware he gamblers at the mercy of the money market and the Wall Street . >n?s who ran the game, for the gamblers had more money in the orm of Liberty Bond gambling markers than all the real money on ?arth, and as new stock gamblers alwsys buy as their purchases go ip and never sell until they go down, the world witneased and Ic litnessing the present frenzied gambling conditions. At the beginning ef the present game of exchanging "Libertys" or stocks it became evident there would not be stocks enough to g: :rocnd, so Wall Street began to manufacture new ones by the score nd to the amount of billions. At first tbe?e new stocks had some value nd merit behind them, but as the confidence men and crooks through - ut the country sensed th? game they flocked to the StreeV until toda> f th? scores of stocks on the New York Curt) there is not one in wenty that is worth the paper it is written on. WASHINGTON TOUTING THE GAME To the few who know finance and the stock gambling game, t ^erly became plain that with the buying powir of billions of "Li', ;rtys," a power to buy more than all American stocks, the rresan4 renried boom must continue unless it was stopped by the only pos sible stopper, the Government. Therefore, it was of supreme mport to know the real attitude of the Government. Csrefal inr?... igation showed thrt from ths start Government Officials Army )fficials, Senators, Congressmen snd others in power zt V.'ashnftrn ? ere head over heels in the stock gambling game. In r-.y invest. "-ation I did not let up until I obtained proof positive that til" lovernment was not opposed to the present wild boom, and as my >nly object in investigating was to find if it wa? wise to advise my 'o'lowing to take part in the great game I will give what I con .der proof that tne Government will not interfere in the gam? at. on the contrary, will continue to smile as prices mount and lour.t, until they have reached i mpoasible-to-con tinue-to-mour'. urther prices, when the whole structure will collapse in the most lisastrous cataclysm the world has ever witnessed. Many stock' ilreadv have risen five thousand per cent, and as only a small portion of the "Libertys" in the hands of the people have come nto the game, and as they are coming in ct an increasing rat o ivtry day, stocks should rise another thousand to five thousand per ccnt. ENDICCTT-JOHNSOft A straw which shows the direction or the Government wind A' the begfnning of the war the Federal and Massachusetts Government selected for the head of Massachusetts affairs Henry B. Endicott. a noted shoemaker, and for his chief assistant and chairman of "Lib ertys," James J. Phelan, the active head of the great New York and Boston Brokerage House of Homblower & Weeks i Weeks is I'nited States ex-Senator and one of the beet posted stock camblers in Wash ington) Both of these men did good work Two things they preached continuousJy and emphatically?cost of living prices must be kep; down and no public flotation calling for investment must be made while any Liberty loan was pending or on the way. DOUBLE WAR PRICES FOR SHOES Just as the last Liberty Loan 6tarted Messrs. Endicott and Phelan to the amazement of the financial world, offered for public subscrip tion in the press throughout the country Mr. Endicott's shoe business at $36,000,000 No hidden underground mine values. No patent won ders. Just a plain every-day shoe business. Before the war It earned about a million dollars and was worth around ten millions. Because of the war. when $2.75 shoes sold for $9 75. it earned around $5,000,000, and because it earned $5,000,000 it was capitalized for $15,000,000 pre ferred and $21,000,000 Common Stock, and as it boldly stated that bet ter than wsr prices were to prevail In peace times. th? $15,000,000 Pre "erred was rrabbed by the public at par. The Common Stock was pat :>n the market at Hi.60t.0WI. and a few daj? ngo 'bet op JSAXW.'H** te ?0,000,000. be<ause of well defined rumors thzt the coming peace :rice for $2.75 shoe* was to be $29.75. NO CRASH IN SIGHT I give tKie shoe illustration for the purpose of showing that the nly possible chance of stopping the present frenzied 6tock market i?e. interference by the Government, need not be feared Such dollar-a-year men a# Endicott and Phelan are not only in iose touch with the Government, but with public affairs, and they vculd under no circumstances father such an affair if they had not positive knowledge that better than war prices are to prevail for i cng time to come. If in shoes, why not in ail commodities? ^ror" ?.hat the friends of EndieotWohr.son are whispering on the St'-eet I selieve its price will not stop rising until it reaches $500 to $^00 p-r hare. Endicott-Johnfin is no exception to stocks in general There are cores like it, and the profi's of 'he public who by the thousand? are ?xchang ng their ?'Libertys" for them will be fabulous before tlie fi-jl crash. GAMBLE OF THE AGE - I would have the public look this proposition squarely in the nob. The present price will continue, barring accident, to tremendous heights, because as it continues to rise the buying power of stock owners will be practically unlimited and the buying power of the bil lions of "Libertys" not yet in the market will be unprecedented, and the volume of stocks must constantly shrink because a large majority of all the new stocks are swindles pure and simple, and will be driven from the market. If the rise should culminate with a crash it will matter little what sort of stocks one has, as they will all go to hell together. As the rise continues the demand for a good honest class of low priced stock will become imperative. When the good honest low priced stock appears it will be pounced upon as the favorite marker ff/f the great gamble of the age and its rise will be great. The big low priced gamble of the age must he "Silvers." There is no other class of stork that is at bottom?all other classes have already risen to heights from which they can fall to depths? "Silvers" has not yet started. As I selected "Coppers" in its days for the gamble of that age. I have now selected "Silvers," and as in those days I sheeted $2 00 Butte as the center of the combination of "Ccppers," I now select 5100 Seven Metals. As Butt' was an o'.d but abused and nerlected stock, so is Seven Metals. Butte rose from $2.00 to $135.00 per hare. Seven Metals probably will not repeat this, but its purchase now should show hundreds per cent profit if for no other reason han its intrinsic worth, rf for no other reason than that I will make it a favorite marker in the gamble of the age. SILVERS?SEVEN METALS I don't advise any on" to stock gamble. T advise every holder of-<Libertya" to hang: onto them, as ultimately! they will be worth over par when all present day stocks will be selling i from a hundred to 5.000 per cent less than cost. IF "LIBERTYS" HAVE BEEN" EXCHANGED FOR STOCKS AND I THOSE STOCKS SHOW A PROFIT OVER COST OF "LIBERTYS," TAKK , FROM 25 TO 50 PER CENT OF THAT 1 liOFIT AND BUY SEVEN METALS AS A GOOD HONEST GAMBLE FABULOUS PROFITS COMING The profit on 100 shares of Endlcott-Johnson (bought at 535.00? $3,500 and sold at $500? *50.000) will be $46,500 Put $11,000 of this j into 11.000 shares of Se*.*en Metals at $1.00 per share and the profit when , Seven Metals sells at $11.00 per share will be $110,000. If it sells at' $101.00 per share the profit will be over one million dollars. Green stock gamblers will ask is the above possible, and I answer i that the following is a matter of public record: I urged the public to buy "Coppers." Butte went from $2.00 to J $135.00. Montana from $60.00 to $520.00. Copper Range from $10.00 to $107.00. Trimountain $10.00 to $125.00. Utah $."00 to $136 00. Chino j $5.00 to $75.00, etc., etc., and the public made profits of over $400,000,000. ' Bethlehem Steel went from $15.00 to over $700.00 per share in a few months and scores and scores of stocks in like proportion. If stocks continue up, as they must or cra^h, Enaicott-Johnson. which has gone from practically nothing to *118.00 a share In a short time, will reach $500 a share, and if stock prices continue up the price of Silver, the metal which has gone from under fifty cents to $1.07 an ounce, and the demand for which, if prices of stock continue to fabulous prices, I will be unlimited, must continue up, thereby giving all silver mines in I the "Silvers" combination fabulous earning*, and under such conditions ? Seven M?rtals should go U> $10.00 and can so to $110.00. In my career I have seen trem?ndou* bull markets sfoM the' heads and fabulous profits turned into enormous losses over n'ght Th? present market when it breaks will b? * record buster. "^he rise of months will disappear in an hour, and scores and scores of present-day multi millionaires will be turned bark to paupert. and their only po.'S'.b!* insurance is to put a part of their profits inlo ?c honest 'ow priced gamble which if stocks continue up will follow them, and which if the crash comes will sell for more than erst. Some of the other Silver stocks, such as Denbigh, which may g*> fhto "Silvers," may offer ui opportunity before they go in, but the only one T point to now is Seven Metals, a* I intend to run It ahead as a Bell >Xvther I had intended to run Denbigh akmg with it, but Denbigh is still tangied in its innards. CROOKED GAMBLING Don't confuse Seven Metals or any of the others coirg 'nto "Si!v?rs" with the scores of low priced fakes Hooding the market. Under no oli eumstances touch a low priced Silver without first fiadin^ out who i? be hind It and his record. The mining stocks I have publicly advised on during the past forty odd years have givy the public over I400.0ft0.000 profits while br nging them losses of but $40,000,000. In addition to knowing who is behind a stock don't buy It but in the open market through a reputable Brokerage House?never buy a stock privately. When stock is bought publicly in the open market the transaction Is under the eye of the Government the police and the market authorities. Crooked stocks are sold priva'ely. P. 8.?Bear In mind what I said on Butte. Anaconda. Utah rh no and all my other "Coppers" that showed the public over $400,000,000 profit 11 never sell or buy or tske orders in any stock 1 advise on. All orders -must be executed in the open market through ^tock Excbance or rurh Houses When "Silvers" is announced all orders must be flllcj in the , same manner. I THOMAS W.
