" "" ITT"1 fwpr ftfT!f9f y$WQQk ,' '' " Threatened Blockade Causes Much Gopiment Export Men Admit Action by Great Britain Would Be Bad for Business, But Loss, Academicalfy, i Would Be Comparatively Slight. Great Britain's threatened enforce ment of an actual blockade of tho cen tral powers' ports formed tho principal topic of discussion In financial circles during tho last week, pegnrdlnjr the situation, tho New York Press says: Although several export mon de clared that, while tho blockndo would ho bad for buslnosB, thoy were of the opinion that It would undoubtedly be Great Britain's wisest course to put Into forco tho strictest and most ex 'tenslvo blockade In Its powci. But of Its effect on tho foreign trade sit uation and all Its ramifications here, thoy wore of tho unanimous opinion that New York would bo put in an extraordinarily bad plight. Academically- tho enforcement by, England of an embargo so strict that it would cut off every dollar of our foreign trndo with the Germanic powers would mean very little to our wholo sum of commerce of this char acter, according to the volumo of business done with them last year. AIbo. from thlB viewpoint. It would affoot only 10 per cent of the whole volumo of our foreign trnde if the blockndo shut off all our ships carry ing cargoes to tho chief neutral 'coun tries. The New York Times thinks that Brltoln'.a announced Intention of taking Germany's export trado away aftor the war Is of even greater Importance to the United States. The Times' comment today follows: Much Interest Is shown In the re ported accounts of what Great Britain and her allies are devising with a view to n stricter blockndo of the Teutonic empires, and also crippling German mercantile trading after the war Is over. For some time nast Great Britain has been trying to restrict shipments to countries contiguous to Germany, to sufficient to supply tho needs of those -countries alone, without leaving a sur plus for oxport. This has been espe cially the case with regard to the long list of articles that have been for the first time 'classed as contraband. The reported Intention Is to try and make It virtually Impossible for Germany to get from without anything to eat or wear or make munitions of. Tho serv ices of the British colonics are to be enlisted as an aH to this, as Is shown by tho absolute embargo placed by Aus tralia on all exports to the Netherlands. Of more far-reaching consequence, how ever, is the statement that tho rltlsh Intend to prevent German vessels, after the war is over, from plying between ports In the United Kingdom or between such ports and those of any of the Brit ish possessions. If this purpose Is car ried out. it wilt dispose, at one stroke, of a large percentage of tho foreign trade which prior -to the beginning of hostilities was done by German vessels. Tho freedom. of the seas, which tho Germans Insist shall' be theirs and which was theirs before they began tho war. will cease to be anything but a term. have since the first of tho year shown An Atinrmntm inrAHM wrHljih fitlnls thn nredlotlnn mucin 'snvernl months niro I that the big corporations that havo had ' enormous war contracts would begin to make deliveries early" In January and that thejr earnings from this source would appear In their 1916 and not in their 1915 statements. . The 'biggest shippers, It Is said, have been tho American Can Company and tho Baldwin and Wcstlnghouse com panies. During tho week ending .Tapur ary 15 there wero exported $401,026 of cartridges, $266,000 of cordite, $343,553 of fuses, $775,372 of smokeless powdor, and $155,529 of all other explosives. In addition there wero Bhlppcd $4,048 429 of loaded projectiles, and $2,401,401 of empty sholls. There wero also shipped $80,897 of firearms of various kinds. aeroplanes to mo value of $170,352 were also shipped, Japanese ships are beginning to sup plant the American merchant marine on tho high seas, according to tho New York American, which says: The Now York American learned yes terday that tho Southern Pacific Com pany has made an agreement with tho Toyo Klscn Kaisha, one of the largest Japanese steamship companies, to han dle tho former's freight designed to Japan. An officer of tho Southern Pacific stated yesterday that this agrcemont had been effective slnco the Pacific Mall Steamship Company sold its steamers and went out of business. For merly this freight was handled by the Pacific Mall Steamship Company, which Is controlled by the Southern Pacific, but the Pad lie Mall lato last year declared that the provisions of tho seamen's act were so onerous as to warrant It going out of business. The steamship Persia of tho Pacific Mall was sold to the Toyo Klscn Kai sha last year. While the Toyo Klsen Kaisha, docs not touch the Chinese nnd Manila ports entered by the Pacific Mall when It was In business, the Japanese line runs from points. on the Pacific coast to Japan. An officer of the Southern Pacific said yesterday that he believed the Toyo Klsen Kaisha had some agreement with other companies whoreby the freight consigned to China and Manila was re layed. He added that, owing to the with drawal of the Pacific Mall from the Orient trade and the withdrawal of the steamships by the Canadian Pacific Company owing to the war, the Japan ese are In control of the Orient business. The New York World tills how the prophesies of enormous gains In war exports for 1916 has been borne out In the following comment, which appeared today: Movements of explosives to Europe Tho vast gains reported by the American Brass Company ore reported as follows in the New York Sun today: The American Brass Company ro ports for the year ended December 31. 1915, net profits of $6,128,454, as com pared with $1,460,347. This was equal to 40.8 per cent earned on tho $16, 000,000 capital stock, against 9.6 per cent earned the year previous. The balance after dividends, $1,600. 000 being disbursed for that account in 1915, as compared with only $900,-222-Ln 191. was $4,178,454. against $550,347. This, added to the previous surplus, gave to the company a total profit and loss surplus on December 81, 1916, of $12,778,005, as1 compared with $8,699,551 on December 31, 1914. WEEK IN FINANCIAL CIRCLES Americans are now being given nn opportunity to realize, through a com parison with the previous year's re sults, the actual extent of tho pros perity In the nation of which there has been so much talk and speculation. Ite ports covering the entlro year 1915, or the first half of tho llscal year which will terminate June 80 next, are now being published. Probably the most encouraging ot these statements aro coming from the railroad companies, slnco the transpor tation business reflected the period or depression more markedly than a vast majority of the leading Industries. I Tho Pennsylvania railroad proper will report n, gain In gross earnings for De cember of approximately $4,000,ixw, de spite tho embargoes that were made necessary by tho congestion or freight on Kastern systems. Gross for the month In round numbers Is $18,300,000, a gain over the corresponding month or 1914 of nearly 28 per cent. Kor tho full ear tho Pennsylvania railroad's gain was about 9,500.0W. The Income ac count of the Pennsylvania railroad will show a -surplus over charges or ap proximately $40,750,000. or a small frac tion more than 8 "per cent on tho stocK. The Baltimore and Ohio, another of the large systems of the East, shows nn even larger proportionate incrcaso in gross gain. Its December report gives a gross gain of $2,400,687, which was at the rat or 37.3 per cent. Tho gain In net earnings of $su4,y.3 .was at tho rate of 41.2 per cent. Furthor evidence of the nation's finan cial growth Is found In tho compilation of the clearing house of New York of the reports of all the banks of that city, made in response to the calls for statements of their condition on De cember 31, Issued by the Comptroller of the Currency and thr State superinten dent of banks. The- Comptroller called for the condi tion of national banks on December 31, 1914. and the superintendent for that of State banks and trust, companies on Dccemoer 24, 1914. so that a comparison Is afforded with almost exactly a year ago. In that time the loans of all the banks and trust companies have grown lust about 50 per cent, or from $2,000, 125.400 to $2.996,153,0.

Tho mills of tho country are now working to capacity, and somo or them overtime. Tho drawback In tho situation, tho al!k , makers say. Is tho high price of raw Bilk and the ihort dye supitty. But pconlo havd money to meet increased prices, and tho pusssslo that confronts tho trade, a manufacturer said yestorday. is how to supply - tho great demand for fabrics, lt Is agreed that the call for Bilks. Is a f true bn -rometcr of prosperity, for only when the peoplo aro prosperous do they run to luxuries. ' , ..... One of tho largest manufacturers of fine silks Bald yesterday thMhe sea son's output of tho mills had been i con tracted for. -and that he could have dis posed or moro man o mills' present capacity. ... As in the cotton goods trade, tho silk manufacturers say business la now tho best since 1W7. but tho dyo situation is causing uneasiness. So acute Is It that, dyers will only make contracts sub ject to ability to get dyes und to varia tions In prices they mdst pay. Thcro havo been several vory striking examples 6f tho manner In which the European war has pyramided security values of corporations, Bethlehem Stool and General Motors standing out as striking examples. These, however, aro not tho only war bonoilclarlcB. The con flict has brought almost as great pro portionate wealth to manufacturers of On January -27, 1915. tho shares of tho United States Industrial Alcohol wm pany sold for $15. There Is M0?,000 of common stock outstanding, so tnnt at that day's appraisal tho total com mon stock was valuod at $1,800,000. Tho war was on at thut time, but few peo plo had discovered tlwt denatured al cohol and tho acids derived as by-products in Its manufacture had a war use. In a little loss than a year tho mar ket's appraisal has multlpllcd.more than eleven times. At Friday's high price the common stock was valued at $20, 280,000. Tho shares reacted from 165, yesterday's high price, to 106 In tho last mlnuto of trading, but at that price there was a net gain of 17Vs points orr tho day. Tho rlso was so rapid In tho lato afternoon that a report got around that an Important announcement wns to be made after 3 o'clock. Thore was no announcement, and officials of the com pany professed to know of no reason for any. Heads of many of tho large corpora tions which havo been forced. In order to keep their plants In operation, to meet the demands of labor for higher wages, havo been disturbed as to how they will fare when the rush of orders brought In through tho war aro com pleted and peace settles over tho world again. They ask whether labor will then be willing to accept a reduced wage, or will demand that the war wage continue to prevail. The Utah Copper Company appears to have taken care of this situation In Inaugurating Friday an advanco of 25 cents a day to Its miners. Tho stipula tion Is said to havo been made that, as long as copper continues to sell at 20 cents or better the advance will bo continued, but when the metal falls bo low that price tho former wago basis will go Into effect again.
