P. Morgan Last Winter COUNTRY PASSING WAITING PERIOD Money Is Harder to Secure for Large Enterprises Because Men With Capital Are Awaiting Readjustment By HOLLAND New York. June 6.—(Special.)—George F. Baker, who followed Mr. Morgan as a witness before the Pujo committee, waa quoted in dispatches from Chicago a day or two ago as having spoken as any man of intelligence would do if his confidence in the prosperity of the United States was very strong. Mr. Baker does not often speak for publication w'hen he is at his home in this city. So It has been assumed that his recent sojourn in Chicago and the close personal louch with those who are directing very important affairs in the Mississippi valley served so greatly to strengthen his own profound belief in the healthfulness that characterizes almost every kind of business in the United States as to justify him in speaking briefly but emphatically for publication. Mr. Baker’s views are similar to those which J. Pierpont Morgan held at the time of his departure from the United States for Egypt, in January. One of Mr. Morgan’s personal friends met him, either in Egypt or on the way back from Egypt to Rome, and began conversation with him to the end that he might find out what Mr. Morgan’s view of existing finan cial and business conditions in the United States was. This conversation he report ed to some of his friends soon after his return to this city. He asked Mr. Morgan if he thought the depressing financial situation, especially in the securities market, was to be long con tinued. In reply, Mr. Morgan said that it ought always to be borne In mind that until human nature changes men are cer tain to trade, to barter, even to speculate and to take up very large plans for the development of natural resources. That being the truth, this factor must not be overlooked in considering business condi tions. It is certain, Mr. Morgan thought, to compel renewed business and financial activity. Furthermore, the harvesting of phenomenal crops such as have been gar nered for the past six or seven years In the United States and are likely to be gar nered even in larg v amounts in the com ing years will inevitably lead to a reeur i er.ee of financial, commercial and busi ness activity. Mr. Morgan said, further more that it seems to be forgotten that there are always intermitten periods ji depression coming in between times of great prosperity. This he thought was very healthful. The present slackening is only tempor ary. a halting to catch breath and to *o gain energy so that there may be strength to go on with renewed vigor. Mr. Mor gan also spoke with Intense enthusiasm, although In a few' words, of the healthful growth not only materially, but morally and intellectually, which Is to characterize the United States. These were probably the last words spoken by Mr. Mo'gan to any friend In which he expressed his never changing confidence in the permanence of American Institutions ami the healthfulnt as of our material growth. What Mr. Baker is reported to have said at Chicago .sounds JM:e an echo of ■what Mr. Morgan st^Jd to his friend three thousand miles away onlv a few weeics before his death. A Monition Justified Only a few days ago /ice President Tal bert of the National City bank spoke to the Bankers’ club at Detroit and his words of monition were so carefully heeded that Detroit bankers sent private communica tions to their frier.ds in New York i*i which they told of he profound impres sion Mr. Talbert’s address had made. He intimated that the present is a good time to prepare for emergencies. He set forth briefly the reason why it seemed to him that the present is no time to attempt to finance very large lines of securities or to Initiate great undertakings. There was n clear intimation that undarwriting syn dicates would do v.i 'l if they would refuse their aid in the marketing • »f large blocks of securities. Mr. Talbert’s view was that the world’s working capital at tills time needs replenishment, since it is not large enough to meet the demands of nations and of corporations that seek great funds. Sooner probably than Mr. Talbert ?x pected, there came a justification of his monitions. One ! n> l»een furnished :>y New York stai". The Empire State, the possessor of stupendous resources, is com pelled to go into the market and barter ns it has never done, at least since war days, so that it may obtain as small an amount for the state as 127.0(Xi,000. The Btate Is going to offer its short time notes lor discount or for rale at auction. It is compelled to offer ns much as 4% per cent interest and possibly 5 per cent must be offered If the money is to be found for these note*1. This Is extraordinary, almost unprece dented, in financing. Yet ii perfectly re flects world wide financial conditions. Patient inquiry has demonstrated that the state of New York cannot at this time sell a bond bearing 4 per cent interest and with a life of 50 years at par. The stare cannot under the law sell its obligations at less than par Therefore in order to tempt monev from those who are able to Invest the state must offer as much as 4’2 per cent an l may be compelled to agree to f> per cent. There could not be a better demonstration that Mr. Talbert’s moni tions were well founded than this action soon to be taken by New’ lork state. In Other Markets From Europe there has come within a few days’after this Detroit address visible demonstration of the conditions which jus tified Mr. Talbert in speaking as he did. The financial ma-kets of the world are always cloaked with securities which have been put out by nations, by railroad com panies and by corporations with intent to secure new lapltal. Only a few ('ays ago there was a note of glee that the new Chinese loan of Jia6.00o.000 should have been oversubscribed. But this very over subscription was of Itself characteristic of disturbed financial conditions and the marketing of the loan seems to have ag gravated th financial pressure. China could not have obtained funds upon this security unless ;t had been willing to Shave only 85 cents on the dollar and also have been willing to pay 5 per cent inter est. That was 'he bait whlcn tempted those who had money to Invest. Reliable Information from London and from the continent of Europe tells of the placing on the money markets since Jan uary 1 of nearly SI,000.000.000 worth of new securities, about if) per cent of which w*ie issued in London. Some of the underwrit ing s\ ndlcates it is now thought here, would have done well If they had taken heed of conditions which were so palpa He that Mr. Talbert, as well at other White teeth— billions of them! 4>%.

All members of the party expressed themselves as very much pleased wltn t hr improved service, which Is getting bettor all 'lie time on ac count of the new roadheo becoming more settled and a grear deal if money being spent in improving it. Mr. Cochrane said it was his pr licy to go over the road ms often as possible and takft with him heads of the different de partments to order that they might dis cuss with one another the various policies and plants for improving conditions, as well as to meet the patrons of the road with a view to making the service satis factory to both parties.. All of this terri tory is building up very rapidly and the railroad company Is buying new equip ment and enlarging its «I *.e track facilities dally to meet the Increased traffic, as a great many new people are moving In on the line. bankers, have recognized them for sonio months.

Mut they do seem to justify, according to competent opinion, the view that the present is n time for waiting, get ting second wind, lasting, so that, us Mr. Morgan said, new enterprises may be pre pared to carry out their plans with re newed vigor after a season of recupera tion.
