Imperial Dispatch to The Star.
NKVV YORK, February 11>. ? It was
perhaps tohe expected in view ??f the
general characteristics of yesterday's
dealings that this morning's stock market
should open with a feverish and unsettled
tone. Such, indeed, was the case,
but before the passage of the first half
hour it became plain tl at genera! liquidation
was by no means as urgent as it
was yesterday, anil, furthermore, that
supporting orders had been introduced
into a number of stocks. Price movements
throughout the day were, however,
highly irregular, and at the close
of business the nit results were decidedly
mixed.
Conditions in the steel trade were again !
the absorbing subject of interest and dis- i
Mission. Imring the greater part of the
business session the promised official announcement
by the sleel corporation was
withheld hut there was? strong mtimatietis
that the official statement would
take the form that renditte an adjustment
of qurrent trade conditions atr
open market would he declared for the
various manufactured steel and iron products.
with the exception probably of steel
rails.
Erratic Fluctuation.
I'nited S'ates Steel common was again
dealt in upon an enormous scale, and the
sioek fluctuated In an erratic fashion. A
further decline of 1 point was scored in
tiie opening transactions, after which
tiie stock enjoyed a substantial rally and
later fluctuated irregularly.
Amalgamated copper recovered the
whole of an early decline notwithstanding
a further reduction in the selling
price for the metal. The railway equipment
shares were all weak, while cotton
oil was exceptionally strong.
The traction stocks were practically
neglected during the greater part of the
day.
The expected announcement of the
Southern Pacific bond issue was made
early in the afternoon The amount was
fixed at $?2,0?In addition, the regular
dividends were declared upon both
T'nfon and Southern Pacific stocks. Other
active features of the railway list were
Reading, New York Central, St. Paul and
Atchison. The last named continued ex.
ceedingly firm.
Currency Movements.
Previous to the opening of business the 1
quotations for American shares in then
London stock market were commonly and !
substantially below parity w ith New j
York's closing prices of yesterday.
The London stock market was generally
weak, chiefly because of revived uneasiness
with regard to the political situation
in southeastern Europe. Foreign
chouses were sellers in the local market of
upward of .V>000 shares, but there was no
little suspicion as to the real origin of
these ortfers. The foreign exchange market
was strong, partly in connection with
"the London selling of securities, but little
alteration was shown in the money mar
1. ?i
nri.
The principal movements of currency
during the week as set forth in the preliminary
estimates, indicated only a small
change in the cash position of the banks,
despite the fairly large returns of government
balances to the subtreasury.
COTTON MARKETS.
NEW YORK, February 10.?The cotton
market opened steady at a decline of 1
to 3 points, which was about in line with
the cables. Offerings were light; there
was a little covering by near-month
shorts and some buying of the new crop
months; tids demand was sufficient to
rally prices to about a couple of points
over last night's close, but trading was
very quiet around this level, and later
fluctuations were narrow and irregular,
with the tone uncertain

LOCAL FINANCIAL \IEWS.
The trading done at today's meeting of
te stock exchange was animated and
ive a suggestion of times when the maret
is more active than has been tlie
iso for some time past. This was
rought out more especially and for the
rst time in the general demand that
orang up for the common stock of the
Washington Railway and Electric Commy.
While the stock was to be had,
id apparently in great abundance at 4:p%,
le buying came from a large number
f brokers and was well distributed.
The bid at the close remained at 43 and
le asking price an eighth of a point
iglier.
The disposition in the case of the pre;rred
stock appeared to be to sell at
flow the current figures, and the few
ansactions recorded were at '.hi54, with
ime odd lots at 91. Rut few buying orcrs
were in evidence, and at the close
le bid was ftnti, and the asking price
>"s. After call fifty shares sold at iMVi.
(las stock was the most active on the
it ire list. It was well supdrted from
le outset, so that the low levels of yes rday
were not readied. in fact, the
rst sale was about a point higher than
le general lel-el of yesterday. Starting
ut witn a purchase of twenty-five shares

ought steadily all that was offered up

larked what was apparently a recover}
ward the higher levels of the beginning
f the week.
The market finally settled down to the
i% level, where It was when the trading
ased. There was only a separation ol
n eighth of a point between the bid
nd the asking prices, so that indicates
retty well the disposition.
The bid for the stocK ot the Georgetown
as Company ran up to t?5. three points
Iter than the figures of yesterday, but
lat did not serve to bring out the stock
Mergenthaler sold above the recent liigli
Dint, as one lot of ten shares brought
204 and another lot. 2.19 and the stock
as to be had at 2.2?>4 at the close, with

GREAT WASTE SKOWl

(Continued from First Face.*
which could Jater be intelligently codi
1 tied, and has evidently, with some fore
sight, laid the groundwork for this re
vision by secmring in advance legislatio
that would enable a committee represent
lng both houses of Congress to protec
tiie printing service from the effects of an
errors or oversights which might r<
suit from the numerous specific repeal
necessary to an intelligent revision an
codification-.
The commission has recommended fror
j time to time legislation which gave th
j joint committee on printing certain pow
j crs of supervision, in the exercise of whe
alone savings are being effected exceed
ing JcOo.ooo per year. The joint commit
tee on printing has since its creatio
more than fifty, years ago exercised < ei
tain administrative functions, and the?
economies are the direct result of the tie'
powers which have been vested in th
joint committee.
Change in Bindings.
A feature of the commission's work c
interest particularly to librarians and put
lisher? is likely to be in a sense revolu
tionary in its effect. For more than
hundred years the official tiles of the gov
eminent deposited in state and territorla
libraries and the designated depositorie
of each congressional district have bee
bound in sheepskin, notwithstanding rr
, peated protests from librarians and tli
. American Library Association, liereafte
these publications will bo bound under di
rections of the joint committee on printin
in a buckram that has met the approva
of the official representatives of the Amei
ican Library Association, the librarian o
Congress and the director of tlie bureau o
standards, who conducted a series'of pra
tical tests. The commission promises
separate report in detail upon this branc
, of tlie inquiry.
Tiie commission, among it? numerou
recommendations, renews a former pic
; test against a continuance of the "bulk
appropriations, recommends provisions fc
certain reports from the public printe
with a view to allowing the product' c
the office, citing the fact that no compare
tive analysis of the product has eve
heretofore been possible; recommends
schedule of charges which shall he subjet
to regulation by the joint committee o
printing.
In addition to legislative drafts embod>
ing these new provisions, drafts are als
submitted of a proposed revision and co<"
Ittcation of several of the more importar
features of the printing law with the ret
ommendation that they he adopted as
basis for a thorough and complete revisio
and codification in line therewith.

i price of the May delivery dropped t
: 1.13%ul.m?.
i Continued unfavorable weather wa
i responsible for the further advance i
corn prices, which at the opening wer
a shade to above the previous clos<
, There was a little setback from the to

Activity and strength marked earl
trading in oats. Opening quotation
were unchanged to Ua1# liigiier, con:

Toward the middle of the day tli

the day. and in the final half hour Ma
sold at 1.15% The close was strong, wit

J. G. PATTE COMPANY FAILS.
L
Receivers Named for Well Know:
i Women's Clothing Firm.
k Justice Barnard today adjudged the ,
G. Pattee Company, dealers in women
clothing, at 1.131 G street northwest, bant
rupt, and appointed John G. Pattee an
Stanton C. Peelle receivers. The bond c
the receivers was fixed at $6,000.
i The order is based on the petition of /
E. Lefeourt & Co. of New York, wh
say the company is indebted to them i
.he sum of $6,0B3; Lefcnurt & Schulo
( who have a claim of $500, and Levet
Grossman & Co., whose claim amounts t
$3,047. These creditors complain that tli
company is insolvent, and it is allege
the corporation has committed an act r
bankruptcy by admitting in writing las
Wednesday its inability to pay its debt
and its willingness to be adjudged* bant
rupt.
i Attorney Stanton C. Peelle. repre*?entin
the creditors, stated today that the tot;
Indebtedness of the corporation is aboi
$20,000 and that its stock of merehandis
1 and other assets are worth J'd.Out).
RESULT OF TAXICAB STRIKE.
Manager of Company Charged wit;
Running Unlicensed Hacks.
Twenty-nine cases, charging the dcfenc
ants with operating unlicensed hacks, wei
filed in the Police Court today again*
Jeremiah Fieklin, manager of a taxica
company, and Krnest Burgdorf, a liver
stable proprietor. There are thirtee
cases against the first defendant and sis
teen against the latter. Continuance
were granted at the instance of counse
for the two accused until tomorrow an
next Thursday, respectively. The corr
plaints were filed by Hack Inspector Daw
son arid Policeman Wheelock of the firs
< precinct.
The charges are the result of the strik
1 of the taxicab chauffeurs, which force
s the company of which Fieklin is manage
, to liire carriages and hacks of liver
i stablemen to carry out their contract
? with hotels and take the places of th
" absent autos at the Union station. It i
said the prosecution in the cases is aim
? lar to that of tlie Cline case, which wa
prominently before the court a week c
more ago.
Assistant Corporation Counsel Pugh, i
' speaking of the prosecution of the dcfenc
' ants, stated that the two licenses, one fc
a garage and the other for a livery stabli
ft held hv the two men were insufficient t
t cover the business of an impromptu hae
5 and cab line.

i- "From a manufacturer of cigarette:
n with a capital of $'2.Y0<K),?nn> in IS'.to. th
American Tobacco Company has grow
ll until now its net capitalization, excludin
s intercompany holdings, amounts to th
" enormous sum of . It has at
sorlied li."VO ^separate concerns, and noi
e controls four-fifths of the output of ear
1 important kind of tobacco manufactur
in the Fnited States, with tlie exceptio
^ of cigars."
. The foregoing is set forth in a repot
~ transmitted to the President yesterday b
Herbert Knox Smitli. commissioner c
1 corporations, of tire Department of Con;
" merce and L?abor.
a Furthermore. Commissioner Smith say;
referring to the company; "Its history als
presents important features of stock tna
's nipulation. The linancial transaction
.7 centering around the organization of th
Consolidated Tobacco Company in 1iM
|r are especially noteworthy. At that tim
!, a small body of directors and stoekholt
ers in the combination believed that th
profits of tlie combination could be grcai
a ly increased in the immediate future.
t To Secure Most of Profits.
"They organized tlie Consolidated T<
baroo Company and offered its bonds i
o exchange for tlie common stock of th
I- American and tlie Continental in ordt
thus to secure for themselves most of th
increased profits about to accrue. Th
a profits accruing to tlie common stock f
n 'lie American and the Continental, aft*
its acquisition by the Consolidated, it
creased greatly, and the small hodv f
j men controlling the last-named oompan
I?so small, in fact that six of them hel
a majority of its stock, and thus cor
n trolled the entire combination?becani
n entitled to millions of dollais which, ha
it not been for the Consolidated tram
b action, would have pone to the origin;
>f common stockholders."
i- In his letter of transmittal Commit
y sioner Smith states that his report dea
n with tiie history of the great tobacc
|C combination, from the standpoint of ii
organization, the methods by which it hi
been developed, including "bogus indi
? pendent concerns" of the combination, an
li points out clearly that the leading purpot
of the men who have controlled it iu
(> been to dominate the tobacco industry.
Sidelights on "Schemes."
s The report contains not only the detai
n of the financial operations of the com bin;
e tion in its rise, hut also many sidelighl
j on tiie schemes employed to make tl
combination paramount in the tobacco it
u dustry.
Referring to the offer of the bends of tl
y Consolidated Tobacco Company in e:
'a change for the common stock of tt
i- American and Continental, Commission;
y Smith stated that while there was r
it concealment of the fact that the off;
d came from the principal officers and d
n rectors of the two companies, yet "tl
n conduct of this group of men is a prop;
i- subject for criticism, because tliey coul
foresee much better than outside stocl
,5 holders the large profits about to aeeru
They occupied a fiduciary relation to tl
ie outside stockholders, and should lia\
h shared with them equally the specii
v knowledge acquired by their position."
