15CENT MONEY
HALTS TRADING!
? - # t
Rails Take Slight Boost fte-|
suit of Announcement of
Return March I.
By BROADAN WALL.
New York. Dec. 31?Railroad stocks
wore the backbone of the market to
day although they did not more much.
The fact that they advanced any In
fhe face of 15 per cent money was
considered remarkable and their
strength was extended to the Indus
trials, in which several very important
improvement* took place.
The Street feels that money will be
more plentiful early in the new year
and la willing to take a chance on
the market in the meantime.
Standard railroads advanced an
average of a point The reason of
course was President Wilson's proc
lamation a*npuncing their return to
private ownership on March 1.
ReceiverfHips are not feared so
much by Wall Street as is govern
ment ownership. Pere Marquette dis
tinguished Itself with a movement to
a new high record because the road ]
la making remarkable earnings. Ru- .
mor says that the Canadian Pacific ,
may become interested In It but what
has been done Is Justified by the
earning* reports alone.
Corn Products directors deol&rc^
the long-delayed dlvtdepd on the
common stock, placing the rate at 1
per cent regular for the quarter and
M of 1 per cent extra The stock
* waa atrong throughout the day.
The fact that President Wilson hsd
Mgned the Edg* bill revived the cop
pers. Anaconda was the leader of
thia group. '
Announcement rtiat the railroads
would be returned and that the Edsre
hill had been signed were both bullish
factors on the steel shares, all of
which advanced Republic wn.? th*-1
leader and more was heard of th*
combination that ha% been talked of
>o many months to include in that
company the Lackawanna and the
Pennsylvania Steel companies.

New Plan Will Please Em
ployes of Institution in
N. Y., Says Holland.
y
One of th? banks of New Tork
City did not fall in line with other
financial institution* which an
nounced a few day? ago that in ad
dition to the .salaries bonuses would
1 be given to the employes, the
; amount of which being equivalent
i to 25 per cent of the salaries.
The bank which did not delight
its employes by announcing that a
bonus would be paid to them in this
j holiday season, is the largest in the
! United States and one of the largest
J in the world. ^
. It is tbe National City Bank. Al
though this bank abandoned giviu*
1 25 per cent bonuses it did something
! which is probably even more grati
fying to Its employes. For it de
, cided to Increase each salary by as
i much as 25 per cent. The difference
I between this new method and the
old should be obvious.
A bonus is a gratuity. It may or
may not be granted every year. An
{increase of salary is permanent and
'the clerk who was receiving $4,000
| this year will hereafter receive
J $5.000, with the understanding that
? if he merits further increase he will
I be sure to get it.
Of course from one point of view the
clerks are not fjulte a* well ofT for the
Income tax collector will levy an ad
ditional incomc\tax which will cover
the 25 per cent increase in salary,
whereas a bonus, being a gift, is not
liable to taxation.
^ Very likely this change in the City
i Bank's method of remunerating ita em
ployes reflects in moidp measure the
remarkable expansion of this bank.
It has now neventy-flve branches. As
a whole they cover practically the en
tire commercial world. These
branches, together with the parent
bank, are certain to be occupied with
the work of stabilizing foreign ex
change. This, however, is only one
feature among tbe many associated
with the world-encompassing activi
ties of the bank. It was the ttrst
American banking institution to enter
the foreign field.

terday among some "mild reaerva
' tioniats" on the Republican side of
the Senate, who indicated they would
j like to see Senator I-odge adopt a
: vigorous method of getting the treaty
ratified Senator McNary, of Oregon.
I conferred with several of the "mild"
group and suggested serving an
i ultimatum upon Senator Ix>dge to get
busy before the holiday rece^a is over
Mny fiet Off Reaeryatlaa.
It whs intimated that unlesa Ix>dge
showed eome .?irns of atarting ac
tion on tl?e treaty. McNary and
j Other* would desert his leadership,
open negotiation* with the Democrats
and vote with them for ratiflration
It was said there micht cl^htewn
Republican* willing to Join the anti
i'Lodge movement.
Senator McNary said he "sincerely
desired the ratification of the treaty."
and could net understand why Sen
I ator Ijodpe should tiave ao much
i trouble about arranging a compro
i mise. His view of the aituation la
that if a few minor changes in th?
I-rOdge reservations are made?Just
enough to enable the Democrats to
"save their faces '?enough Demo
crats will veto with the eighteen
"mild" Republicans to bring about
J tat ificat ion.
He could not understand wliv Sen
| ator l.odge spent so much of his
'time dealing writh the avowed ene
j mies of the treaty, 'ike Senators
' Knox. Borah and Brandegee. Mc*
J Nary said.
I "I belteve that if the Democrats
; vote for a compromise, the Pres
ident will accept it." he added.
Don't Know Who to See.
j The unsettled leadership question in
; the Democratic ranks ia a atumblinar
block to a compromise, it was said.
.This question is not to be settled
i until the Democratic conference Jan
uarv 13. Republicans who desire to
compromise find it hard to decide
whether they should negotiate with
Senator Hitchcock, acting leader, or
with Senator I'nderwood an active
aspirant for Senator Hitchcock's
place.
If the leadership should be won by
! Senator I'nderwood. the "mild" Re
Ipublicans might find the way to com
promise easier, because Senator I'n
derwood has announced he will accept
anything* even to the Knox resolu
:tlon. in order *o get peace. Senato
Hitchcock is holding out for reserva
;tions. which would be acceptable to
the President.
