NEW YORK, June 13.?Conservative stock
r.arket observers say that they continue to
lee signs of improvement in the general
lituation, but they think that any attempl
o advance prices materially at thi3 time
vould b? ill-advised. They point out that a
arge amount of money will be required to
>rovide for the July 1 disbursements, and
hey think that money used for advancing
>rlces before that time would be largely
rasted. In their opinion outsiders could not
ciuci iuo uiaiivck u ??
:ensive scale Just now, even If it had an ap>earance
of genuine activity. In their Judgnent,
il the market is allowed to remain
luiet for some weeks longer outside interists
will be attracted to it because of the
landsome dividend relations and the belief
hat with reasonably good crops the leading
ssues should sell considerably above presnt

A representative of a large corporation, in
liscussing the general situation this mornng,
and in pointing out recent favorable
levelopments, calls special attention to the
eto of the two-cent fare bill by Gov.
iughes. He said that not only has the
rovernor's action been very favorably rehv
nrnmlnont flnnnnlnl Intprpfltfl hut
hat they think the memorandum accom>anying
his veto is the best document of
ts kind that has been made public In a
ong time. He thinks that the action of
he governor will be an important factor
n the restoration of confidence in corporte
affairs. He further expressed the opinon
that if a few announcements of a simiar
tone could be consistently made and folowed
up by the chief executive at Washngton
much more would be accomplished
a the restoration of confidence on the part
>; the public.

The same man in discussing the financial
ltuation said that considerable importance
hould be attached to the indication that
racticallv all of th? nrominent savlmrs
anks propose to pay interest at the rate
>f 4 per cent a year. He thinks that the
ontinuance of Interest at this rate will atract
savings to the strong Institutions, intead
of their being dissipated in wild-cat
eal-estate speculation, as the tendency to
,o has been so notable during the last two
r three years. He further points out that
he ability of the savings banks to pay 4
er cent should be taken as indicative ol
ound financial conditions.
