UNFILLED STEEL
ORDERS INCREASE
March 31 Total 4,494,148
Tons; Largest Since Sep
tember; Gain of 353,079.
The unfilled orders on the United
States Steel Corporation's books on
March 31 were 4,494,148 tons, the
largest since September, and an Increase
of 353,079 compared with those of a
reonth earlier. Tlie report was a com
plete surprise to Wall Street and the
steel Industry. A big Increase had been
expected, but estimates of its extent
ranged around 250,000 tons. Railroad
buying was a very large factor In the
sharp upturn. During the Quarter about
70,000 car orders, or approximately
three times as many as those of 1921,
were placed.
Of the big total of unfilled tonnage,
about 240,000 tons were placed on the
last day of March, according to Informa
tion obtained yesterday. All of it was
for railroad equipment. The railroads
had received from the equipment com
panies bids based on 1.35 cent a pound
for steel, and those companies were
notified by the corporation that the
price would be Increased on April 1 to
1.50 cents a pound. For that reason
the orders for steel for car building,
v.liich It had been intended to hold back
until April 10, poured Into the corpora
tion's offices on the last day of the
month, accounting for close to 70 per
cent, of the Increase.
Tl\e following table gives the monthly
ft ports of unfilled orders on the books
of the corporation for the last two
years:

The United Railways & Electric Company of Baltimore
First Consolidated Mortgage Fifty Year Gold Bonds
Bearing 6% Interest
Dated March 6, 1899 Due March 1, 1949
NOT SUBJECT TO REDEMPTION PRIOR TO MATURITY
Interest payable March 1 and September 1. Principal and interest payable at the banking house of Alex. Brown &? Sons, Baltimore, with
out deduction for any tax or taxes which are or may be imposed by the United States, which the Company may be required
by law to retain or deduct therefrom. Coupon bonds in denomination of $1,000. registerable as to principal only.
THE CONTINENTAL TRUST COMPANY, BALTIMORE, TRUSTEE
C. D. Emmons, Esq., President of the Company, has summarized as follows a letter describing these Bonds:
BUSINESS?The United Railways & Electric Company of Baltimore was formed in 1899 by
consolidation of all the street railway companies in Baltimore and vicinity, their tracks
totaling about 339 miles. At the present time it operates more than 418 miles of track
and a total of about 1100 cars, and serves a population of approximately 800,000.
PURPOSE OF ISSUE?The proceeds of the sale of these Bonds are to be used to retire the
$3,000,000 City and Suburban Railway Company First Mortgage 5% Bonds due June 1,
1922, to redeem the $1,500,000 The United Railways & Electric Company of Baltimore Ten
Year Secured Gold Notes maturing January 15, 1931, and for the retirement in part
of other corporate obligations maturing in 1922.
DESCRIPTION OF ISSUE?The Bonds are issued under the First Consolidated Mortgage, dated
March 6, 1899, and the principal, as well as interest at the rate of 4% per annum, is se
cured by the lier^of that mortgage. Pursuant to a Supplemental Indenture, the Company
is to affix to the Bonds its obligations to pay additional interest at the rate of 2% per annum.
thus making the total interest rate 6% per annum. The 2% additional interest will not
be secured bv the First Consolidated Mortgage, but in the Supplemental Indenture the
Company will covenant that it will not create any new mortgage upon any part of its
property subject to the First Consolidated Mortgage unless such new mortgage expressly
shall secure the payment of said additional interest obligations equally and ratably with
any indebtedness secured by such new mortgage.
SECURITY?Upon the retirement of the $3,000,000 City and Suburban Railway Company Bonds
(provision for which is made in this financing) the First Consolidated Mortgage becomes
a first lien on all of the property now owned or hereafter acquired by the Company sub
ject to only $5,550,000 underlying bonds for which an equal principal amount of First
Consolidated Mortgage Bonds is retained by the Trustee. The mortgage, except for the
provision for underlying bonds, is a closed mortgage. The underlying bonds cover less
than 40% of the trackage operated by the Company and none mature before 1929.
The bonds secured under this mortgage have been, for many years, legal investments
for trust funds under the jurisdiction of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City.
"V.
EARNINGS?Earnings of The United Railways & Elect ric Company of Baltimore during the
past five years have been as f ollows:
Net Earnings 'Interest on First
Gross after Taxes but Consolidated Mortgage Times
Year Earnings before depreciation 4% Bonds, etc. Earned Balance
1917 $10,656,938 $4,309,820 $1,849,425 2.33 $2,460,395
1918 12 012,763 4,012,489 1,852,990 2.17 2,159,499
1919 14,834,350 4,232,851 1,888,703 2.24 2,344,148
1920 17,434,339 5,129,757 1,939,345 2.65 3,190,412
1921 16,437,045 4,761,604 2,079,014 2.29 2,682,590
This item includes not only the interest on First Consolidated Mortgage
4c'( Bonds, but also rentals, interest on underlying bonds, sccured notes
(now to be retired) and equipment bonds.
As may be seen from the above table, net earnings during this five year period, Avail
able for rentals and interest items set forth, have averaged $4,489,304 per annum or about
2.34 times such average annual requirements. Since the proceeds of the present financing
are for refunding purposes, increase in interest charges resulting therefrom will alter this
ratio very slightly.
FRANCHISES?Practically all of the Company's franchises in the streets of Baltimore are per
petual as more fully explained in a letter, dated April 8, 1922, describing these Bonds.
THE ABOVE BONDS ARE OFFERED FOR SUBSCRIPTION AT 97% AND INTEREST, YIELDING
ABOUT 6%%
Subscription books will be opened at the banking house of Alex. Frown & Sow-. Baltimore, at 9 o\lock .4. A/., April 11, 1922.
In making allotments, priority as set forth in a circular, dated April 10, 1922, (available on application) will be given to holders of cer
tain maturing obligations of the Company. The right is reserved to reject any application and to allot smaller amounts than applied for
(except as to priorities mentioned), and to close subscription books without notice. This issue is dependent upon the approval of the
Public Service Commission of Maryland. Delivery of Definitive Bonds, or Temporary Botuis, is expected about April 24, 1922.

^ has been primarily a commercial hank for and by the people
of Brooklyn.
Our aid and guidance, freely given to all of our depcito's lias helped for 6? years to
stimulate and encourage Brooklyn's industrial growth.
Brooklyn now is fourth in manufacturing of the cities of the United States.
From both the standpoint of convenience and experience gained through a close
touch with the development of Brooklyn, we stand to-day, peculiarly fitted to meet
the banking problems of Brooklyn industry.
