TRANSIT EARNINGS
SAG IN DECEMBER
Revenues Up 15.9 Per Cent
Above 1933, but Costs Rise |
31.9 Per Cent.
BY EDWARD C. STO\E.
Total net earnings of the Capital
Transit Co. in December amounted to
$89,210.91 as compared with $118,
392.58 in December, 1933, a drop of
$29,181.67, according to the monthly
financial statement filed today with
the Public Utilities Commission. The
reason for the difference is that while
operating revenues showed a gain of
15.9 per cent, operating expenses in
creased still more rapidly by moving
up 31.9 per cent because of an increase
of between 500 and 600 employes since
December a year ago, higher fuel
costs and other added expenses.
Operating revenues totaled $767,
947.81 against $664,628.12, an increase
of $103,319.69. Operating expenses
called for $529,965.28 compared with
$401,699.05 in December, 1933, an in
crease of $128,266.23. Addition of
taxes and depreciation brought this
figure up to $636,193.34 in comparison
with $502,863.66, an advance of $133,
329.68, leaving a total operating in
come of $131,754.47 against $161,
764.46 a year ago, a decrease of $30,
009.99.
Non-operating revenues amounted
to $13,595.26. while in December. 1933,
this item stood at $13,227.45. Gross,
less operating expenses, taxes and de
preciation, totaled $145,349.73 as com
pared with $174,991.91 a year ago, a
falling off of $29,642.18. Deductions
from gross called for $56,138.82 against
$56,599.33, a decrease of $460.51, leav
ing the above mentioned net income
of nearly $90,000.
December was the first month
under the second year of consolidated
operations, making vital monthly
comparisons possible for the first" time.
During December 1934 the Capital
Transit Co. carried 16,696.132 pas
sengers, compared with 12.390.638 in
December, 1933, or an increase of
34.7 per cent.
The report for the full year 1934
was also filed with the commission
today, showing operating revenues of
$8,457,600.80, operating expenses,
taxes and depreciation of $6,970,
425.62, leaving an operating income
of $1,487,175.18. Non-operating in
come stood at $168,111.71, gross at
$1,655,286.89. Deductions from gross
totaled $679,180.62. leaving a remark
able net income for the year of $976,
106.27.
During the 12 months 177,553,898
passengers were carried on the com
pany's lines, indicating that the
claims made a year ago that street
car business in Washington could
never be revived, were a bit prema
ture.
Pledge Aid to President.
Ralph T. Crane of Brown, Harri
man & Co., Inc., and John M. Han
cock of Lehman Bros., New York, as
sured President Roosevelt yesterday
of the co-operation of the Investment
Bankers' Association to assist in re
opening the capital market. Mr.
Hancock announced the appointment
of a committee of seven, headed by
himself, to co-operate with the vari
ous Government agencies affected.
The committee, in addition te Mr.
Hancock, is composed of the follow
ing: Charles S. Cheston, Edward B.
Smith & Co., Philadelphia: B. How
ard Griswold. Alex Brown & Sons,
Baltimore; Roy C. Osgood, First Na
tional Bank, Chicago: Sidney J.
Weinberg, Goldman Sachs & Co., New
York: Dean Witter of Dean Witter &
Co., San Francisco, and Orrin G.
Wood, Estabrook & Co., Boston.
Mr. Crane is president of the In
vestment Bankers' Association.
Business Setback Doubted.
"The comparative soundness of
business conditions and the prospect
of gradual improvement seem to be
eliminating from the minds of most
business men any idea of either a
serious setback or a fortuitous stimulus
leading to any substantial and im
mediate advance," says Banking pub
lished by the American Bankers As
sociation, in its February business
review.
"What is now counted upon is a
steady though perhaps slow improve
ment. Recovery depends on the suc
cess of the Government's efforts to
restore the normal functioning of
private capital. In all probability it
Is the unanimous hope of business and
banking that these efforts continue
with aggressiveness and sincerity,"
the review says.
"One feature dominates the situa
tion in these early weeks of the new
year. It is general recognition of ti e
comparative solidity and stability of
fundamental business conditions, not
withstanding such flare-ups as the ex
citement over the gold clause cases
before the Supreme Court.
"Indeed, the tendency of business
undoubtedly is to discount unfavorable
developments so far as they can be
foreseen at this point. There is, natu
rally, no disposition to overlook the
possibility of future difficulties, but
there seems to be an almost universal
recognition of the country's progress
toward recovery during the past year
and a realization that favorable con
ditions are operating with increasing
force. To say the least, the gains
made should be held."

MACHINERY READY
TO CLOSE MARKETS
Prompt Action Due in Case
Gold Decision Brings
Crucial Situation.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK, February 1—Amer
ican security markets will be closed
during the reading of the gold clause
decision by the United States Su
preme Court, or immediately after
the reading, if market conditions
justify this action. Despite official
silence on this matter, both here and
in Washington, all the machinery is
ready for immediate closing of the
markets, if necessary.
Naturally, the New York Stock Ex
change and other exchanges through
out the country don't care to say that
a definite decision has been made,
and neither does the Securities and
Exchange Commission or President
Roosevelt. There is a general feel
ing, however, that prompt action will
be taken if markets become un
manageable.
Commodity exchanges probably
would not close, even if securities soar
or sag. Nearly every commodity mar
ket has fixed daily trading limits and
when these are reached trading is
automatically suspended for the day.
Normally Supreme Court decisions
are handed down early on Monday
afternoons. If the usual procedure is
followed, this would mean that the
gold decision would come during the
market hours. It is impossible to
order the exchanges closed in ad
vance, since only the court knows on
which Monday the decision will be
handed down.
Should the decision be published
before markets here open, the action
of foreign currencies and the over
the-counter markets would be a good
barometer.
Today the New York Stock Ex
change is holding an Important meet
ing to arrange for a series of hear
ings concerning the handling of

Chicago Grain
By the Associated Press.
CHICAGO. February 1.—Corn mar
ket weakness much of the time today
acted as a drag on prices of all grains.
A reason for downturns of the corn
market was that Argentine exports
this week included 1,831.000 bushels
of corn to the United States. Argen
tina also cleared 462,000 bushels of
oats to this country and 301,000
bushels of wheat with destination
optional, either the United States or
Europe.

Prices Generally Narrowly
Irregular—Volume Near
500,000 Mark.
NEW YORK, February 1.—The
stock market jogged along today with
caution the keynote. Price variations
were generally narrowly mixed. Santa
Pe lost more than a point and frac
tional recessions were shown by United
States Steel, Du Pont and Consoli
dated Gas. American Telephone,
Johns-Manville and Westinghoust
were slightly higher. Transfers ap
proximated 500,000 shares.
With trading in stocks even duller
than yesterday's colorless session, most
traders clung to the safety side-lines ^
and waited for developments to shake ™
the list out of its lethargy. The rev.s
was not particularly stimulating.
Grains and cotton were narrow, as
were corporate and United States
Government bonds. Foreign ex
changes were slightly mixed.
Among share gainers of fraction!
to β round a point or more were Co
lombian Carbon, Air Reduction, Beth
lehem Steel preferred. Inland Steel
Texas Gulf Sulphur, Twin City Rapid
Transit, Brooklyn-Manhattan Tran
sit, Wrigley and International Har
vester. An advance of 2 points wa:
registered by Homestake Mining on ι
few transfers. U. S. Smelting, Alliec
Chemical, Santa Fe. U. S. Steel pre
ferred and Union Pacific lost about
a point each. General Motors
Chrysler. U. S. Steel common. New
York Central, General Electric, Amer.
ican Telephone and Consolidated Ga.·
were unchanged to slightly lower
Studebaker was active without get
ting anywhere.
A decline in car loadings for th«
week ended January 26 of 7,187 car!
was not interpreted as unusually bear
ish. The total of 555,768 was seen as
about seasonal by one statistical serv
ice. while another estimated it as a
little more than seasonal.
Nervousness was still apparent ovei
the uncertainty of a possible golc
clause decision Monday and heavinesj
of various stocks was attributed almost
directly to this influence.
The extension of the automobil«
code by the President had been gen
erally expected. In this connection
Wall Street was principally interested
in potential labor repercussions.
New York Cotton

NEW YORK. February β.—Whili
the disposition to await further de
velopments in Washington remained

little more active today, with prices
I easing under liquidation and scat·
I tered selling. The midafternoon mar
ket was quiet, with May holding
around 12.37, or within a point ol
the low for the day so far. with the
general list showing net losses of about
