GROWING SUCCESS
INMARKETINGBQNOS
AMONGJHE PEOPLE
Some Historic Failures and
Some Recent Conspicuous
Successes in Venture
BALTIMORE SOLI)
MILLION WITH EASE
City Bonds Were Sold Over Counter
to People Just Like Any
Other Kind of General
Merchandise
___.
By HOLLAND
New York, July 8.—(Special.)—Chan
ning /ftudd, who was the founder of
the Finance Forum of this city, deemed
the most successful of modern educa
tional platforms, and who is now as
sociated with the world-renowned
banking house of Aleander Brown &
Co. of Baltimore, has publicly ex
pressed himself as hoping that other
cities than Baltimore will take lidfed
of the manner in which nearly a mil
lion dollars worth of Baltimore city
bonds were sold over the counters in
that city and in small blocks to people
of moderate means.
The achievement is one of which, had
he been living, the great founder of
this banking house, who was the father
or creator of foreign exchange utilized
to facilitate our commerce with Great
Britain, would have been justly proud.
Already tentative attempts have been
made, in this city to market recent
issues of .New York city bonds, al
though the method was a little dif
ferent frdm that adopted in Baltimore.
The New York city bonds had already
been sold in competitive market and
blocks of these bonds were afterwards
secured by the proprietors of depart
ment stores and offered for sale over
their counters.
A public statement was recently
made containing an intimation that if
the railroad companies of the United
States were anxious to get into close
and friendly relations with the public
they could best accomplish this by of
fering their securities to the public
and announcing their willingness to
sell their bonds in very small lots. If
there could be some arrangeemnt made
with bankers whereby public offerings
of this kintl could be announced then
it is possible that the' railroad com
panies would find a considerable por
tion of the public ready, even anxious,
to make small' investment securities of
this kind.
But in railroad financing it is impor
tant that the railroad managers should
be assured of an instant market for
large offerings of their securities.
Therefore underwriting arrangements
aj’e made and after the contract has
been perfected the railroad companies
are no longer *1ri doubt about their
ability to obtain the needed funds. That
is a risk which the underwriting syn
dicates of bankers or capitalists as
sume.
Bonus; Directly to the People
An enormouH amount of bonds or
stock is absorbed by the public with
out any record of that fact being made
or any public knowledge or informa
tion regarding it being published. In
every considerable community in the
United States small manufacturing
companies market their bonds in small
lots among the people of the communi
ty in which the manufactories are
situated. At the latest annual meet
ing of the Association of the American
Blectrlc Hallway companies the state
ment was made that by far the larger
portion of the capital needed for the
establishment of traction systems has
been secured by marketing bonds of j
| stock in comparatively small blocks!
I with the people who lived in the com
munities in which the traction reads
jure to be operated.
The city of New York some years ago
! attempted to market an issue of bonds
lirectly from the city authorities to the
people, but the attempt was not very
successful. The reecnt offerings for
New York city bonds have been at
public competitipn, therefore anybody
who possesses savings sufficient #o
buy even as small an amount as one
bond at a par value of a hundred dol
lars can bid for it and if the bid is
high enough he may secure a reward.
There are a good many small blocks j
of New York state bonds that have
been secured in this way.
The real estate incorporated companies
have worked out a simple and yet very
skillful plan for marketing in small lots
proportionate parts of mortgages. They
do this by the issuing of certificates rep
resenting a certain proportionate part of
a mortgage and guaranteeing the pay
ment of the principal and interest which
this certificate represents. A business
amounting to millions has been built up in
this way. Yet* a few' years ago it was
thought impracticable to split up the
mortgage bo^ds so that tjiere could be
muny owners instead of one.
John Sherman’s Attempt
The attempt of John Sherman when Sec
retary of the Treasury to market directly
from tlie treasury department to investing
purchft&ers an issue of bonds the pro
ceeds of which Secretary Sherman ex
pected to u.?e to facilitate the resumption
of specie payment in 1879 fS a historic
failure. It was the ono failure of Secre
tary Sherman s administration. But k
was a failure because the Secretary did
not perfect adequate machinery by means
of which*tliis issue ol’ bonds could ha\ 3
passed from the treasury department to
investing purchasei a,.no matter how small
each individual purchase was. The de
nomination of some of these bonds was as
low as $50. There was perfect demonstra
tion of the ability and the eagerness of the
public to buy these bonds directly from
the treasury department, but the Secre
tary or his assistants had not devised
means by which this issue could be kept
from brokers or others who wanted to buy
them for speculative purposes.
Twenty Years After
Twenty years later an Assistant Secre
tary ot the treasury, Frank A. Vanderlip,
now president of the National City hank
of this city, undertook to pass an issue of
$ii«,OtiO.UOO of bonds directly from the
treasury department to investors. It was
known that a majority of the purchases
would he made by national hanks. The
bends were especially available for na
tional banking purposes. But there was i
considerable portion of the public that
would, It was presumed, be glad to get
some of these bonds If they could buy
them at first hand or directly over the
counter or the treasury department.
The Secretary of the Treasury, Lyman
J. Gage, placed the matter In the hands
of Mr. Vanderllp. ' After carefud study.
Mr. Vanderllp was convinced that nothing
was needed to assure the success of the
proposition, but the creating and perfect
ing of adequate machinery for this specla,
purpose. To do that was work of two
or three month", ft entailed the employ
ment of a large body of special clerks.
Every possible loophole was foreseen and
means taken to prevent the escape of an/
bonds through loopholes Into the hands of
speculative purchasers. The design was
to pass this large Issue of bonds. In blocks
big or little, directly from the treasury
department to Investing purchasers, with

Capitalist Passes Away On
Tuesday Following Ill
ness of Heart Trouble
Anniston, July 8.—(Special.)—Funeral
services over the remains of Col. John G.
Farley, who died at his home early Tues
day morning following a short illness, du
to heart trouble and a general collapse
incident to old age, will be held Wednes
day mqrning at 10 o’clock at the resi
dence, followed by interment at Hillside
cemetery, the Rev. S. E. Hodges of the
First Presbyterian church and members
of the Masonic lodge officiating.
Colonel Farley was a member of the
First Presbyterian church here and a
past grand master of the Masonic fra
ternity. He owned the Farley building in
Birmingham, the Capital City Clothing
Btore building in oMntgomery. and prop
erty here in the Kaplan block, on Wil
mer and Quintard avenues. He was one
of Alabama's wealthiest men and was
essentially self-made. He retired from
business before he«was 50 years of age,
and the Farley building in Birmingham,
representing several hundred thousand
dollars, was planned and financed after
Colonel Farley was 70 years of age. He
was a great believer In Birmingham real
ty and haul most of his money Invested
there and In Montgomery.
Born at Haynevllle, January 25, 1835,
Colonel Farley received only an elemen
tary education, and was a young man at
the outbreak of the civil war, he having
removed to Benton at the age of 1(1. He
enlisted in the Forty-fourth Alabama regi
ment. fought in several battles in Ten
nessee and Virginia, was later transferred
to a clerical position in the quartermas
ter's department and was standing near
Lee when he surrendered at Appomattox.
Riding home on a box ear after the tvar,
he fell off while passing through South
Carolina and sustained an injury in one
of his ankles which had caused him con
siderable trouble in recent years. In 1881,
he moved to Verbena, and lived there un
til 1897, when he came to Anniston to
educate his children.
After the war. Colonel Farley organized
a mercantile business, but the greater
part of his wealth was made in real
estate ventures. He rendered valuable
service to his section of the state after
the war. He was of a quiet disposition,
frugal and temperate in his habits, living
without ostentation. One of his last acts
was to give an X-ray that cost about
$1200, one of the finest in the south, to
St. Luke’s hospital here.
The deceased is survived by two daugh
ters, Mrs. A. J. Goodwin of Anniston,
and Mrs. Harry Bellenger of Gadsden,
and one son. John G. Farley, Jr., all the
children of his first wife. IIis widow also
survives and he has a half sister, Miss
Fannie Waldron of Bragg.
390 NEGRO TEACHERS
AT TUStfEGEE NORMAL
Features of Summer School This
Week Will Be Lectures By
Baker and Sibley
IIV A. F. OWENS.
Tuskegee, July a.—(Special.)—The *third
week of the Tuskegee summer normal for I
negro teachers of the south and south
east, Prof. J. It. Lee, director, opened
Monday with 390 teachers from Alabama,
Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida,
i Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, South Caro
lina. North Carolina. Kansas, Pennsyl
vania, Kentucky and Tennessee.
“The Cure of the Teeth” will he dis
cussed by A. T. Landers; “A New Era in
School Building,” 1 y C. J. Calloway, di
rector extension work, Tuskegee institute;
“Rural Scnool Supervision,” by J. L.
Sibley, supervisor colored rural schools
for Alabama, who will use a stereopticon
showing view's of the rural school condi
tions. Mr. Sibley will lecture also on “The
Future'of the Rural School Situation”
Thursday morning from 11 to 12.
Prof. N. R. Baker, state supervisor or
rural white schools, will discourse “Lights
and Shadows in Education.”
Booker T. Washington’s wife will out
line the work of £he National Association
of Colored Women's clubs.
Prof. Clarence Cameron White, the
noted Boston violinist, will entertain the
teachers in chapel Thursday evening.
Louisiana. Mississippi and Tennessee
teachers will close the week’s programme
Saturday night with a musical in the
chapel.
The increase in the enrollment during
the week is credited to Alabama, Geor
gia and Mississippi. Alabama has regis
tered 198 teachers, while Georgia follows
with 86; Mississippi comes next.
As new teachers come in every day, the
enrollment will pass the 400 mark this
week.
out any charges ‘ i the form of commis
sions, bonuses or line considerations oy

money.
Notwithstanding the magnitude of thte
issue and the necessity for planning en
tirely new machinery or methods, the plait
worked out perfectly and the entire issue
of $200,000,000 went directly from the treas
ury department to’purchasers without any
cost to the government excepting station
ery, postage and the salaries of the extra
force of clerks—items that were inconsid
erable in comparison with the magnitude
of the loans.
Municipalities, comities, states even,
should be able, if the proposition is taken
in time so that Adequate machinery can
be perfected, to puss their securities in
small blocks or considerable part of their
securities dlr^jtly to an investing public
and especially to a public whose posses
sions consist of small saving.
But in the casq of a great corporation,
industrial or railroad, or of a great pub
lic work which entails large contracts, it
is vital that there be absolute assurance
that money will be obtained when called
for no matter what the condition of the
money market may be.
This is the consideration which led one
of the corporations which has the con
tract for building new subways to secure
it from J. P. Morgan & Co. the underwrit
ing of some $76,<XJO,(CO of bonds.
The company has no further concern re
specting Its finances. That is a risk which
the Morgan syndicate ha£ assumed. No
matter what the condition of the money
market may be. th * syndicate has pledged
itself to furnish funds whenever called for,
receiving therefor the like amount of
bonds until at last the entire amount has
been paid over to the corporation.
