THE INVESTOR
OFFICE OF THE HERALD,
Lob Angeled, April 13, 1897.
The argument has frequently been
marie to the effect that the Issuance by
a city of Its bonds In small denomina
tions In the shape of a popular loan
would meet with great favor among
■mall Investors and would give employ
ment for home capital. Against this
proposition It Is argued that the ad
vantages such as they may appear to
be are more than offset by the elaborate
system of bookkeeping required, and by
the fact that such Investments would
only tend to deplete the deposits of the
savings banks without offering the In
vestor equal protection against his pos
sible loss from bonds.
A. B. Leach of the bond house of Far
son Leach & Co., in writing on this sub
ject, cites the recent experience of Ra
cine, Wis., which thought to'place a pop
ular loan. Mr. Leach Bays:
"This city sold a block of $20,000 5 per
cent bond's, and In order to carry out
the "popular" Idea, $10,000 of them were
Issued in denominations of $100 each, the
expectation being that they would be
taken by local Investors. There were
only two or three local parties bidding
on the loan who desired small amounts
of bonds, and these did not care to pay
within several points of the price at
which the bonds were finally sold to nn
eastern municipal bond house. Bond*
of the denomination of $1000 are much
more convenient, and also save a con
siderable amount of bookkeeping on the
part of tho city officials."

Reports of the condition of the real es
tate market in Chicagojiro not so roseate
as might bo desired. A Now York Jour
nal entitled Realty, has the following to
say In its Issue of the Ist Inst., about
mnttorn In the wlndv cltv. We elve the
Item for what it may be worth, prem
ising that It comes from a source whence
perfect Impartiality could hardly be
expected:
CHICAGO, 111., March 27.—The con
dition of the real estate market con
tinues along the same lines. The only
noticeable change Is a more decided de
press!',n. Sa[es for cash seem almost
out of the question. Our own people
understand that In most cases values In
Chicago are fictitious, and the only hope
of making sales Is that strangers may
come and buy before looking. It Is fol
ly to continue the circus shouting in at
tempting to boom Chicago. It has been
boomed to death. It Is useless to delude
ourselves any longer. Chicago is dead
and every real estate man in tho town
must admit It. All the horns and base
drums in tho universe can't put life Into
it Nearly every piece of property in
the city Is mortgaged up to Its real value;
our streets are going to decay; our public
buildings are falling apart; our supply
ft water la polluted and our people are
forbidden to drink it; our manufactories
are shut down; our public treasury is
depleted and thousands of our people
are starving. Nearly every block has Its
signs, "For Sale," or "To Let," and it Is
not because the tenants are moving—the
houses are empty. The people have gone
away. The world's fair made us known
to the world, and It would seem the im
pression was not favorable.

The extensive electrical street rail
way developments now taking place
throughout New England have attract
ed wide attention, and the indications
point to an unusually heavy construc
tion during the current year. Indeed it
is anticipated by the Boston Traveler
that the mileage built this year will be
materially larger than that of any pre
vious year since the electric railway sys
tem was inaugurated. Two or three new
lines out of Boston Into the suburbs
are even now under contemplation, ex
tensions of lines already built are also
being planned, and some of the steam
roads are seriously looking Into the
question of substituting electricity for
steam on slow branch lines. In all sec
tions of the state this disposition to se
cure rapid transit between towns is
growing rapidly and in Connecticut and
New Hampshire also a number of new
projects are on hand. The fact that steel
rails and other construction material is
at the present time comparatively lower
than In a long time past is stimulating
very much of this proposed new con
struction, although the fact that many
of the lines already built have proved so
profitable Is also a potent Influencing
factor. The steam roads are, naturally,
etlll inclined to oppose whenever possi
ble the extension of electric roads, but
this opposition has become less pro
nounced than it has been in the past.
Wherever these lines are suffering by
reason of electric road competition there
is a growing inclination to moot this com
petition rather than an attempt to crush
it out. So that the chances are now good
that the end of the current year will not
only And a large addition to the street
railway mileage of New England but be ■
yond this it is likely to show a surpris
ing electrical equipment of steam road
branch lines.

The supreme court of the United
Slates has, by a recent decision, upheld
the Nichols law of Ohio, taxing express,
telegraph and telephone companies. Th;
companies were taxed under this law on
their real estate and on their gross re
ceipts from business done within the
state, and they were assessed in addi
tion by a state board. To this assess
ment the companies objected. It seem 3
that for the three years, 1893, 1894 and
1895, the state board had Increased the
valuation of property In assessments
under the law from $289,862 to $4,249,702,
this increased valuation being arrived at
by taking the market value of the entire
capital stock of the express companies
as a basis for arriving at the true value
in money of the companies' property in
Ohio. The decision was rendered by a
bare majority of the court, four of the
Justices dissenting.

The present condition of the real es
tate market in San Francisco is thus
outlined by the Call: Trade in the real
estate line continues of good propor
tions, while the situation generally par
takes of a hopeful character. There
Is no particular enthusiasm displayed
among cither buyers or sellers, but hol
ders still appear to have good faith In
the future, and to this feeling J.S at
tributable the increase of strength that
seems to have hcen imparted to values
within the past few months. Most cer
tainly thr»ro is some improvement in
matters, -leeause the Inquiry Is more
general, &i d there is a disposition to buy
lands of c '. descriptions. The question
CONDUCTED BY GEO. A. DOBINSON
of price is the factor on which business
largely depends Just now.

ON 'CHANGE
What Was Done Yesterday on Wall
Street
NEW YORK, April 13.—The stock mar
ket today showed dullness and apathy
through the early hours of trading though
there were Indications of firmness In the
general list. The center of Interest In the
market al! day was Reading, the sales of
trust receipts aggregating 44,000 shares and
all the securities of the company being ac
tively dealt In at declines. The numerous
liquidation In Reading was attributed to
the sale of stock acquired by the under
writing syndicate on account of non-pay
ment of assesments, which was unloaded
In large blocks, 1000 share lots appearing
quite frequently in the transactions. In
spite of these heavy offerings, the decline
ceased with a loss of i>» and a rally set in
on the stock. The support'accorded the
stock was. credited to a leading Interest In
anthracite coal. Under this buying the
price rose-two points to 111%, with only a
slight reaction at the close. Though the
early Celling acted as a check on the mar
ket by discouraging dealings, the general
market and even the fellow properties iv
the anthracite group wer not at first affect
ed In price by Reading's weakness. Thero
was good inquiry for New Jersey Central,
apparently on a feeling that the stock had
been oversold, and the prices advanced.
There was a reaction in the coalers later,
Induced by the persistent selling in Read
ing. Susquehanna ft Western preferred
losing 1%; Chicago Gas yielding a sharp
fraction and some Blocks In the general
list also showing some slight losses. Ten
nessee Coal & Iron was another stock that
suffered from depression in the early deal
ings, losing 1% on fears of the company's
business being hurt by the low price of
Lake Superior ores. Rut by midday the
first symptoms of a rally manifested them
selves In the Improved tone of the coalers,
under the influences of the news of Mr.
Little's favorable report on the condition
of tho Lehigh Valley, in connection with
the sale of the bonds of the company
which will result In bringing tho control
Into closer harmony with the other coalers.
Other influences gathered to assist the
rally. The completion of the protit taking
In Chicago Gas was followed by renewed
buying of the stock and an upward Jump
on very large transactions. There was a
lull in the activity before the close, but no
Important reaction In prices. Chicago Gas
gained until % over the low level, and
sugar. General Electric, Leather prefer
red and Rubber preferred from 1 to 2%
Burlington led the grangers with an ad
vance of 1%. New York Central rosels;
Omaha. 1%, and C. C.C. & St. L., 1%. Of
the coalers, New Jersey Central advanced
2%; Reading, 2; ditto first preferred, 2%;
Lackawanna, 1: Delaware ft Hudson, 1%,
and Susquehanna ft Western, 1%; Tennes
see Coal & Iron, Consolidated Gas. West
ern Union and Brooklyn Union all rose
over a point and fractional gains were gen
eral throughout the list. The closing was
strong and showed net gains for the most
part.
The bond market displayed an improved
tone and slight gains were generally regis
tered In the principal issues. Business was
fairly moderate and a more extensive va
riety of mortgages were dealt In. with some
of the gilt-edged lines moving up sharpy.
The sales were $1,096,000. Government
bonds lacked feature but held firm on deal
ings of $18,600.

CHICAGO MARKETS
The Day's Transactions on the Board
of Trade
CHICAGO. April 13.—1n wheat a further
advance of %d at Liverpool In addition to
the %d rise of the day before Was unavail
ing because of some of the conditions pre
vailing at home. Minneapolis and Duluth
receipts were one of the domestic features
which caused the Ignoring of the Liverpool
strength. The two places referred to re
ported tho receipt of 504 carloads against
only 237 the similar day of the week before
and 458 a year ago. It did not matter that
Minneapolis was offering the inducement
of %c premium over July price for wheat
delivered now; that was disregarded and
the mere fact of the receipts having in
creased was the only point laid hold of.
Chicago receipt* were ten- cars. A vessel
cleared for Buffalo with 30.000 bushels and
another for Milwaukee with 20,000. May
started from 67% sellers down to 6,Hi
against yesterday's closing price of 67%
to 68 and after gradually working up to 67%.
It dropped back under the influence of
heavy short selling to 66% and 66%. The
short selling was not all by local opera
tors, both St. Louis and New York opera
tors disposing of heavy lines. Resistance
was offered to every decline, the slight ad
vance Immediately after the opening was
caused by the report that the French and
Russian crop prospects were getting
worse. The activity in the flour trade at
Minneapolis was remarkable and dis
patches from there put the total sales dur
ing the last two days at between 174.000 and
200,000 barrels, Pillsbury reporting 76.000
barrels sold by him yesterday. This news,
together with the report from New York
that twenty-five boat loads had been taken
there for export finally checked the de
cline and during the last hour quite a
steady feeling prevailed. May gradually
recovered to 67% and closed steady at
67% So 67 %. Corn ruled quiet and easier.

Boston Wool Market
BOSTON, April 13.—There Is considerable
wool being sold, the business for the past
week footing up In excess of 6.000.000 pounds,
about equally divided between domestic
and foreign. Since January Ist. the sales
reported have been about 110.000/100 pounds,
showing an Increase in business of nearly
79.000,001) pounds over the same period last
year. Manufacturers have loaded them
selves with the raw material to about their
full capacity, while during the past few
weeks speculation among dealers has been
quite ttie factor in the sales. In this way
a large amount of wool has been sold of
late that has not gone out of the market
hut simply changed owners. The sales of
territory wools show a falling off from the
previous liberal business, hut this Is due
in part to the stronger fact that stocks
available have been considerably cut Into.

The stock markets were Irregular today.
Consols, home rails and foreigners were

of the political situation. Americans and
mines were weak, the latter beingdlsjno'.
ly flat, not to say panicky. No one quite
understands the depreciation In Kaffirs-,
and all sorts of rumors are afloat, more or
less untrue. The two main points are-
Transvaal politics and the fact that all
the deep level mines needed cash for de
velopments at a moment when the public
were sick of the very name of mines. Gold
Is flowing freely to Japan and Austria,
chiefly to the former country. China has
to pay Japan £2,;5f1,000 by the Bth proximo.
A good deal of it will come from Germany.
The bimetallic commission appointed by

Local Quotations
Some little excitement was caused among
produce dealers yesterday by a break of a
cent In the price of eggs. Owing to the lib
eral supplies the quotation of 11% to 12
cents could not be upheld and the slump
occurred. During the day 11% cents was
the top notch reached, the general selling
quotation being half a cent lower. This
condition of affairs has been brought about
by a general withholding of supplies in
the expectation of higher, prices resulting
In a break and a quantity dumped 011 the
market at once. Butter remains steady
at the same quotations as Monday, the de
mand about equaling the supply and stocks
clearing up well. Young poultry is scarce
and the demand good, although prices re
main stationary. Stocks are being held
back and there is a probability that a drop
may ensue next week. The market Is over
loaded with poor potatoes but good stock
Is hard to get and commands top quota
tions when It is considered that new pota
toes are already in the market to some ex
tent. Fruits remain stationary. Cherries
have not yet begun to come in being nearly
a month late. Berries are scarce as yet,
but will be in within a week or two.

Southern California
Following is the United States depart
ment of agriculture's climate and crop
bulletin of tho weather bureau for South
ern California for the week ending Mon
day, April 12th, 1897:
The weather during the past week'was
very warm and dry; the temperature
ranged considerably in excess of tha
normal, the first occurrence of this kind
in the past two months, accompanied by
frequent drying land winds. These con
ditions, high temperature and dry air,
rapidly took up the surface moisture
and caused the top soil to crust badly.
The dry weather has made orchard cul
tivation necessary and in some cases
Irrigation has already begun. Rain is
needed for vegetation generally and for
grain, particularly on high lands. The
warm weather was beneficial for fruit
trees, which are reported to be blossom
ing freely.
SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY.
A "norther" on the 7th dried up the

grain is reported. Highest temperature

TESTIMONIAL.
January 3.1597.
To the Public: I take this means of ex
pressing my thanks to Dr. Wong Him ot
639 Upper Main street for having cured me
of kidney and stomach trouble which
caused me great prostration. 1 was unable
to get a good night's sleep for about three
years, and acting under the advice of the
best doctors of Chicago. I came bet c to get
well on the climate, but kept getting grad
ually worst, until I was told to try Dr.
Wong Him. and hy the aid of bis wonder
ful life-giving herbs 1 can say that in three
months' time J am now a new woman and
feel stronger than I ever did. Any person
wishing me to certify this can find me.

MISS KLEMME.
To the Public: I take pleasure In tes
tifying to my marvelous recovery under
the treatment of Dr. Wong Him of 623
Upper Main street. Los Angeles, from a
number of stubborn ailments, among
which were chronic slckheadaches. dys
pepsia and kindred stomach troubles,
heart affection and kidney disease.
But what I consider this physician excelled
In, so tar as my case Is concerned, was In
the restoration of my eye service. Astigma
tism, coupled with other disorders, was my
affliction in this respect, and, although a
number of well-known skilled oculists in
some of the larger cities of this country
advised me I should always have to de
pend upon glasses and receive hut poor ser
vice even then, Dr. Wong Hint s remedies
have enabled tne to abandon totally the use
of any artificial help to sight, and my eyes
continue to give such service, both for
near work and distant, as is truly wonder
ful. To the skill and remedies of the phy
sician named can alone be attributed a rev
olution in my physical condition through
out that puzzles thOse who knew of the
"Incurable" character of my afflictions.
Respectfully, G. L. PLOWMAN.
