The time to buy copper shares is
not when tho consumers ot metal

ducers nro stimulating an advance
in prico whenever possible. This
condition brings about aa active
speculation, during which an exag

been seen in the last twenty years,
uurlnc which the copper industry has
grown from ono ot comparative un-

the economic world. Theso periods
have been preceded by apathotic

Tho reason lor tho prcsont stag

inrtly found in tho general influ
ences, largely political, surrounding
all securities. Other securities, how
ever, nro by no means so prostrat

heir owners. The reason for thl3 is
an over-production ot tno metal,
caused both by the over-stimulation
wsultiug from the excessively high
prices ot 1!0G and 1907, and by tho
discovery of means for profitably
treating tho low-grado copper depos
its commonly called -porphyries."

ally starts when industrial and lab
or " conditions are at their worst,
v hen mills are" shutting down and
labor is bolng liquidated until Its
buying power is raralyzod. At the
present moment we are in the midst
ot such a period. Mills throughout
the east aro working on greatly re
duced time and many are idle. Those
conditions have grown acutely
worse during tie last month and
there is more idle- labor than for
l-robably seven or eight years. This
restriction ot output must make it
self felt within loss than six months
at tho consuming end. tho shelves of
jobbers and retailors will be clear.

demand will compel the factories to
return to full time, the hlle labor

is nil, the metal is very low and
optimism is almost lacking. Trans

liquidated to such an extent that
those left are so nearly paid for as
to tc almost non speculative.
Id other words, copper shares
probably aro more nearly out of tho
street than over before. This condi
tion points absolutely to a period
when ordinary purchases must be
The reason that general opinion
does not accept this view is because
of the surplus ot the metal and the
fear of new production. The surplus
is less than a year ago both at home
and- abroad: but this surplus lies in
the yards and warehouses of the pro.
dnrers because of tho implication of
ecltnite BtatUticB regarding it,
which gives the consumer notice
that he does not need to stock up,
and this has diverted the supply
from second to first hands. The new
production is now capable of actual
measurements. It consists of the ad
ditional production of only a few
mine which cannot be ot import
ance for some time and the possible
increase in the production of somo
of the older, If not tho oldest, ones.
This latter is largely offset by the
constant decrease, now rapidly ac
celerated, of the oldest mines.
On tho other hand, ro new devel
opments have been mado In several
years. No less authority than Mr. J.
Parke Channing has testified pub
licly to this fact. The well authenti
cated report that the British Thar
sis Co. hag- been trying for a long
time, without success, to discover a
property or properties to enablo it
to perpetuate Its cxlstonco Is addi
tional testimony. New supplies
doabtlcsf exist, but they will re
quire years of search and labor, and
millions of monoy, to develop them.

BOSTON. Alay 25. Ono would
hite to go back a number of years
to find any single event that had an
influence at once so immediate and
likely to provo so far-reaching, as
tho Standard Oil decision.
Wo cannot but think that it will
seem equitable to the great major
ity of fair-minded men.
The gist ot it, a we sec it. la
this: that every case henceforth
brought to the courts under the Sher
man act will be judged on Its own
merit. Largo corporations will not
necessarily be considered criminal
combinations of capital.
The decision against tho company
in question was as drastic as could
well bo rendered, but a way has been
pointed out. There will not be, as
was bolicod. any "indiscriminate
disintegration." Business men mo
purpose to comply with the law may
go about their business without fcar
of being molcsled.
Discussion of the decision will
gradually din away, but Its effect
will be lasting.
It is' always appreciable In cop
per circles. If business is to rccu
pcrate. as Is hoped. It is most In
torostlug to speculate on tho future
of tho metal,
i-roauction. as we Know, is large:
foreign consumption has also been
large, larger than most people ap
preciate. No very great lncreaso in
demand can reasonably be expected
from this source. Tho future ot the
metal, then, will depend principally
on domestic demand. Let us see what
Its position is in this respect.
In 1909, tho domestic consumption
of copper, as shown by tho Coppo-
Producers association, was 705,000,
000 pounds or at tho rate of, ap
proximately, r9,000,000. pounds per
months: In 1910, It was. 7-1 9,000,00(1
or at the rate of 54,730,000 pounds
That is to say the average montlil?
takings havo dropped from 53,000.
000 In 1509 and C2,500,OOO In 1910
1," ry Annn
In tiio first third or
tho current year.
It lias been, generally speaking
tho history of copper, that demand
increases pretty regularl trooi one
year to another by about 10 per
cent It the domestic consumption
should now merely return to the
level of 1909, it would mean in
creased monthly takings or nearly
6,000,000, while in the total domestic
consumption for this year is to
equal that of 1910, the takings for
tho balance of the year will havo
to avorage 66,000,000 pounds a
I Clearly, there is reason to believe
that consumption In this country
,wlll, at least. Increase enough to
turn tho small increases tha havo
been noted in surplus stocks of re-
jcent months into substantial dc
i Neither need there be any feai
that this reviving demand will bo
swampoa oy proaucuon iroia iuu
r.ew so-called low-grado porphyries.
According to our figures, which we
believe aro conservative, tho in
creased output from this source in
1911 should not amount to morr
thau C per cent o,f tho total.
We do not look for any sudden
large advance In the prico of copper,,
but from the above, wo think there
is. at least, reasonable ground for
the belief that thoro will bo a good
market for all that is produced at
perhaps, 13 cents a pound. After
the new supply has been assimilate 1
it would not surprlso us if there
wore a large advance. This, how
ever, will bo a matter of years.
I The spirited revival In tho copre;
i market has led us to devote cor--Z
blderaNe space to this subject.
