Financial News?Stock Market Prices
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.

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.
