DETONATIONS THE LOUDEST EVER
A sloop from the Island of St. Vincent
which arrived here this morning reports
that Mont Pelee's crater Is now quiet, but
that the Catenations Saturday night were
the loudest heard up to that time, and that
the inhabitants were terribly alarmed.
Mont Pelee has been In constant eruption
since August 15. There was an enormous
fall of ashes from the volcano the night of
August 25. There was a very severe erup
tion the night of August .5, when the vol
canic rumblings were heard at a. great dis
tance. The mountain burned fiercely that night
and out at sea passing vessels were cov
ered with ashea. The night of August 33 i
there were three separate eruptions.

every available beat to remove the people
from the coast villages to Fcrt de France.
At S o'clock In the evening of Saturday.
August a. the sky was cloudless.
Suddenly one-half of the horizon was ob

quiet. Shortly after this hour there came
another shower of ashes, accompanied by

TWO VIEVS ON FINANCIAL SITUATION BY JAMES R. KEENE.
New Tork, SepL L Ctterances of James R. Keene on the ngwMi situation last
week recall those mads two years ago while In London. A comparison Is made:
July 2S, 1S00.
American railroad stocks are not, in my
opinion, low; In fact, I consider most of
them quite high In price.
Here Is one fact which must never be
lost sight of in Tnavtnc investments that
is the enormous overcapitalization of
American railroads so far beyond the ac
tual cost of their construction that at a
moderate estimate 33 per dent of such
capitalization is absolute water.
The necessity Is always rresent for fresh
capitalization, which comes frequently
enough to warn the observing investor
that his dividends come from this new
tAUKA. fid nfit fnwn TiH!ma.t Hti.'ts.
In two years that have gone by records show that fully three billions of new
securities have been created. Prices have advanced from SO to 300 per cent above
those that prevailed when Mr. Keene thought rallrcad shares were too high.
The fundamentals of the market are
good. Although prices may work high
now In contrast with past quotations, I
believe prices are relatively lower and
stocks Intrinsically more valuable than
they were sir years ago.
I know of no false dividends, but I do
know of railroads that have been earn
ing 13 per cent and paying C per cent.

calamity I can see nothlne which mleht

bio money stringency.
