PROFITS REALIZED ON LARGE SCALE Heavy Unloading of Stocks by Insiders THE LEADERS ENJOY REST New Crowd Is Getting All the News paper Notoriety—Roosevelt May Be Next President of Uni versity of Chicago. BY W. G. NICHOLAS. New York, January 27.—(Special.)—A distinguishing feature of the market has been ‘heavy unloading of stock by im portant professionals and insiders. In every case it has been a realizing of profits on a huge scale. The effect was to liberate securities to the amount of many millions of dollars, thereby in creasing the floating supply and at the same time stimulating the courage of the bears and inducing the creation of a considerable new short Interest. Offer ings of stock were absorbed by the pub lic with unexpected freedom and the wholesale marketing of shares was ac complished at comparatively small ex pense of values. Technically, the market position was strengtened by the shifting of ownership and by the renewal of short selling. There has been, and for that j matter still Is, danger to market stabil j ity and permanency by reason of the I fact that successive advances have been made during the last two months by the purchasers of bulls alone. One set of bulls would buy from another set which in turn would get back into the market at a still higher level of prices and re cover the same securities, the operations being repeated many times. Everybody was making money and reveling in the enjoyment of a sort of a fool's para dise. The tree cannot forever Jcc^P growing towards Heaven, but of this knowledge no one took cognizance. The delight of counting of paper profits was too keen for unpleasant interruption or for too close analysis of a possibly haz ardous situation. 1 The peculiar and very ragged action of many of the stocks lately has natural ly directed attention to -the operations and motives of several of the big plungers and of the groups of speculation formed about the several centers of action. For instance, heavy and continuous selling of Amalgamated copper and other Stand ard Oil favorites gave rise to rumors of friction in that quarter of the market. The selling wfas kept up for days by a number of houses recognized as Standard Oil and Guggenheim agents—these two | i forces form of apparently authoritative reports that the selling was principally for the account of two members of the Guggenheim family who were closing out their speculative lines prior to departure for Europe. These speculative commit ments are said to have aggregated about 225.000 shares plus a lot of stock held by followers and associates,. There have been labored efforts to make it appear that none of the Guggenhelms speculate and that their buying Is always for in vestment-in other words that they never have anything to sell but are ever and eternally accumulating and apparently crazy to pay the highest prices possible for shares in property they control. Tills Is all very beautiful in theory but the belief nevertheless has found firm lodge ment in Wall street that the tribe of Guggenheim has developed a number of tremendous plungers wno have collected about them a coterie of the hardest kind of players, Including such men as C. W. Morse, the iceman: Ex-Mayor Van Wyck and •‘Johnny’’ Carroll. Co incident with t'he conversion of paper profits into real money by the Guggen heinis and their friends came accounts of important selling by houses more or less intimately connected In the past with operations of H. H. Rogers, Wil liam Rockefeller and the City National hank crowd. Close upon the heels of this there sprang Into circulation reports that William Rockefeller is In desperately poor health in Europe. Prompt and ur gent denial was entered but t’he hurred departure of Mr. Stillman for Europe on Tuesday’s steamer gave a certain sort of confirmation to the ill-health story. Then the gossips gave currency to a report that F. Augustus Heinze had let go of a speculative line of 100, 000 shares or thereabouts of Amalgamat ed copper, Anaconda, United copper and other stocks taken on some time ago at very much lower prices. Having thus organized trouble In high life copper cir cles, the whisperers of the street pro ceeded to throw sand in the wheels of a big copper merger, which was sup posed to have been approaching con summation. So far as can be learned there is no foundation for friction gos sip but there is no telling what may be going on under the surface in the way of throat cutting. There are many discordant elements and factions embrac ed within this merger scheme and It can not be considered finished until it has received the last polishing touches and is definitely presented for public in spection. The old wheel horses down in Wall street are looking with curiosity and amazement not entirely unmixed with re sentment upon the operations of some of fhe new school of plungers. For the time being the old timers are in a state of either total or partial eclipse and the eyes of the multitude are fixed upon the Blumenthals, the Rweeneys, the Jeff Levys. the Guggenhelms. the Helnzes. the George Kesslers and other favorites more or less now to the popular vision. John W. Gates is In the market as big as ever and this Is also presumbaly true of Mr. Schwab, Mr. Frick and also mem bers of the old Rock Island crowd, but to the Intense satisfaction of these gen tleme they are less frequently named in the gossip of the hour. They are be ing given a rest exceedingly grateful to them, no doubt. The Hnrrimans. the Morgans, the Reams, the Schiffs and oth ers of their type who represent the ac tual control and management of great railroad systems and giant industrials are also accorded the happy relief of momentary obscuration. The old bull crowd in Reading has taken pains to show its open disapproval of the In dependent operations In that stock by George Kessler. He “butted into” the game witl out consulting with Blumenthal and the other bulls who had come to look upon themselves as the natural guardians of the Wall street end of the property. Kessler looked over the sit uation and saw a good chance for a play, w'aded in entirely on his own account, running the stock up about $15 a share. This was easy because the supply In the street was light. Very soon, however, some of the big insiders began to feed out stock and the keen edge of the later manipulation dulled. Simultaneously a variety of disquieting and ne**ve-disturb ing rumors began to seep ou\ One of J l £0e Jtre Heady for Spring On Svery Jiand. in &\>ery Department.

It was mention?' thai them were precedents for that sort of thing and it might be a good way for the New York Central and Pennsylvania roads to provide themselves with a large sum of easy money which is now very much needed by the two great systems In paying for the stupendous improvements under way in New York and elsewhere. These two systems through their con ti oiled lines. Baltimore and Ohio and Lake Shore havu a large amount of money tied up in Reading upon whicn a profit of more than 100 per cent could he realized If a distribution could be effected within 25 points of current quo tations. T'hat such a coup is under consideration does not seem m-eaaon able. The really Important people in Wall street are taking a very friendly view Of standard securities, such as St. Paul. Pennsylvania. New York Central, Bal timore and Ohio. Union Pacific. Illinois Central and Louisville and Nashville. Of the industrials they favor steel preferred. National Biscuit and sugar. This short list by no means Includes everything that is good, but they are especially men tioned because of their known earning powers and because of the fact that they •have not participated (Union Pacific ex cepted) In the general grand advance which has carried average quotations 11 the highest record leved. T'nere Is also a middle class of stocks which meet with the encouragement of the conser vatives. while bulls on the general big situation will not go quite to the limit of advising investments in the cheap stocks which are selling below the 50s There is a feeling in many Wall street offices that the Guggenheim mining spe DENTAL NOTICE l have engaged the services of an ex pert platemaker, who will do nothing else.

If they should find a speculation area of low tempera ture t'he Standard Oil and Helnzes spe cialties would most likely suffer in sym pathy. The general market seems to be for the moment afflicted with what might be called “too much Guggenheim." Just as it has in times past groaned un der too much Morgan or too much Harri man or too much Gates or too much this, that and the other man. This species of market inflammation is generally lo ca’ and Is curable. The remedy applied Is usually cooling applications hiking the form of an enforced constriction of the bank account. The process Is almost In fallibly beneficial, although while the pa tient is being put through punishment the sensation is not agreeable. According to some commentators, the public is being carefully educated to buy stocks on the reactions so that when the day for grand distribution arises the unloading may be the more successful. A public educated to get under a mar ket on the breaks will naturally keep on buying as prices continue to slide down hill, not being able to detect the difference between a toboggan movement and one of those healthy reactions about which financial writers have so much to say. When the top Is reached on any great bull movement on the stock market the public is invariably loaded with stocks and t'he long period of declining values which follows Is strewn with the wrecks of stubborn holders who hang on while they have a dollar left to put up In margalns. Stubbornness Is the curse of the speculator and the cause of more losses than all other factors combined. The Wall street farmers are full of grief over the Impending ruin of the winter wheat crop, due to the unsea sonably warm weather this mid-winter. With so much bare ground throughout t'hf winter wheat region during the month of January these Wall street agri culturists cannot for the life If them see any hope for nevt summer's crop. According to thejr unanimous verdict not only will there be no winter wheat but no traffic for the railroads Tnlversal ruin seemingly stares us In the face. Incident to the talk which is heard these days about a third term for Roose velt comes the curious suggestion via Chicago that the presidency of Mr. Rock feller s Chicago university Is to be held open for Mr. Roosevelt. On the wings of a Chicago zephyr comes tho report that the university charter is to be broad ened and liberalized so as to make the position in every way attractive to Mr. Roosevelt. It Is further said that the President has been sounded on the propo sition and gives It a willing ear. Until very lately the London copper quotations governed the world’s market for the mental but at the present mo ment the prices established In the Amer ican selling markets control. The Lon don market has until the very recent past represented the distributing end of the situation. Its influence has been to keep prices down as low as possible, particularly to producers. latterly, con etimers 'have shown a disposition to deal directly with the mining corporations In America and to ignore the London middle men. One result Is seen Is the varia tions between the flotations on the Lon don Exchange and the actual price Brit Ish consumers of the metal are paying London figures being away below reol prices. Hence. London quotations are becoming recognized as somewhat fic titious and as more nearly representing bearish opinion than actual transactions Specialists In copper agree that condi tions are in every way satisfactory and tht they warrant the conviction that prices will remain high for at least an other year, which Is as far ahead as con servtlve Judgment will go on record. Many mines are sold to the limit of their production for the whole of 1906. The specialists and bob-tall pools are entirely too active to suit the great bull party In the market. It Is considered harmful to confidence for the cats and l dogs nnd stocks of doubtful standing to ] : be Jumped into prominence nnd gyrated ! about without rhyme or reason. Vigilant observers schooled to look for the un usual and t regard such phenomena as dangerous are beginning to discover weak —j ___ spots In the Ice which the same they do not hesitate to widely advertise. The market goes on regardless, however, and It is barely possible that the soft spots may harden and no accidents of conse quence occur. Nevertfilcss, skaters do not like to fatuously disregard the exist ence of soft spots In the Ice which may be death traps In a money sense. This Will Give Her Pretty Arms. From the Philadelphia Bulletin. Here Is a physician’s remedy for super fluous hair on the arms, the growth of which spoils the pleasure of wearing short sleeves. It has been used with ex cellent results by the family of girls to whom he gave it: One part quicklime, two parts carbonate of soda, vaseline eight parts. This forms a paste, which should be spread on thickly. As soon as It begins to smart or burn It should be washed off. The hairs will usually coma away with the third or fourth application.

Vance Thompson relates Interestingly In “His Majesty, the King of Hpaln,” In the February Everybody’s, that, “like every one else, Alfonso has come under the spell of the automobile. It was In October, 1904, that he drove his first mo tor car. Today he Is an accomplished chauffeur. He has fifteen automobiles, chiefly the big racing machines, for he rides for Speed. His wild races on the dangerous Spanish roads are famous. Neither the queen-mother nor the anx ious ministers have been able to hold him back from this sport, which he makes doubly perilous. A few weeks ago , President Loubet of France was tlif* King's guest In Madrid; when the good j old gentleman cam ehome to Paris he had not yet recovered from his startling ; experience. “If you knew what that young man j made me go through,’ said M. Loubet i ’why, It is a wonder I am alive! There | was one day especially. The young King took me out in his automobile.
