eighth Is still a potent factor in the
market It matters not whether tho
eighth or a larger fraction is a
profit or a loss, it Is about the limit

to be reckoned with.
Congressional investigations are

While the net changes other than

light, the market showed some Ir
regularity, the bears getting busy In
the opening hour with a drop of

transaction, was at 88,
A little Commercial National Bank

Not a transaction was made In
It is Just as well that the summer
adjournments on Saturday are near at

one hold a week ago might Just as
well have been abandoned.
The election of ex-Senator Nathan B.
Scott an president of the I'nlted States
Trust Company will be accomplished on
Monday afternoon, confirming the se
lection of a caucus of directors last

It is understood that Mr. Scott will
be an active head, and the bank Is to
be congratulated on the early settle

Production from domestic and foreign
ores is shown as 45,630.145 pounds of
copper, of which .6,y21,3O0 pounds were
from the company s own ores. An Im
portant feature of the report Is the in
creased recovery of the domestic ores
treated, fiom 2.205 per cent copper and
.75 ounces of silver In 1S09, to 2.329 per
cent and 1.03 ounces of Hllver In 1910
Notwithstandlng that total cost for the
year showed an Increase from $5.45 to
$5.76, due principally to a higher mining
cost traceable largely to developments,
the cost of production was reduced from
11.64 cents for the previous year to 11.51
cents a pound. Disregarding construo
tlon thlj cost was 9.66 cents a pound.
