THE INVESTOR
OFFICE OF THE HERALD,
Los Angeles, Sept. 3.
The August number of the- Rand-Mc-
Nally Bankers' Monthly contains an arti
cle by Hon. James H. Eckels, Comptroller
of the Currency, on bank consolidations, ln
which he expresses himself unhesitatingly
ln favor of the tendency toward bank con
solidation, which has been developing dur
ing the past six months. "I am convinced,"
he says, "that there Is not an Important
city ln the country but would be strength
ened in all Its interests by bank consolida
tions. Within the past few months they
have occurred in New York, St. Louis and
Kansas City. The example thus set could
well be followed elsewhere. It ought to be.
The truth Is, that many commercial banks
in recent years have drifted away from
legitimate commercial banking for the rea
son that they have found themselves con
fronted with so-called commercial banks
born outside of any apparent commercial
needs. They have been compelled through
Blvlng free exchange and payments of
large interest on deposits to look to other
means of meeting expenses and earning
dividends. Tho channel Into which they
have thus either drifted or have been
driven has been a dangerous and ln many
cases a disastrous one. It Is to the end
that conservatism may be restored and
'legitimate and continuing earning capac
ity to bank stocks be brought about that
shareholders should seek whenever neccs
stty requires it the strengthening oC the
bnnks ln which they have holdings by
union with others. In- such a plan would
be found greater safety to all, better bank
ing methods, fewer bank failures, steadier
dividends and less assessments upon bank
stocks."

Municipal Insurance of
against loss of employment has been dis
continued by the city council of
Zurich, Switzerland, after a fair trial,
on account of the unsatisfactory re
sults. The plan adopted by the coun
cil was modeled on that Introduced
by the canton of St. Gaul. The insur
ance was compulsory, and Indemnities
ranging from 3(1 to 48 cents a day were
furnished at rates ranging from 3 to 6 cents
a week. It was found that the plan en
couraged Idleness: the workingmen them
selves, especially those of the skilled class,
objected to the compulsory feature, and
the premiums of the improvident were al
ways In arrears In addition to these un
satisfactory features the plan was not a
success financially, as the premiums re
ceived did not amount to one-half of the
indemnities paid.

The American Agriculturist says: "An
other short crop this year will he potatoes.
It Is not possible for the crop to reach
200,000.000 bushels this year, compared with
256,000,000 bushels last year and 300.000,000
bushels two years ago. Farmers are get
ting nearly twice as much for their early
potatoes now as they did last year."

Window glass has gone up 7 per cent in
price to the public. The Jobbers' Associa
tion met at Chicago Wednesday and were
officially informed by the manufacturers'
combination, which was completed in the
same city, on Tuesday, that the price to
them was raised 5 per cent. The jobbers
promptly raised this 2 per cent, asserting
that the 5 per cent advance did not restore
to them the proper margin of profit. The
new rates of discount under the increase
are 60 and 20 per cent. The increase affects
all grades of window glass.

United States Leather Company people
are talking very bullish on the leather
situation and predicting a shortage ln leath
er. This talk is believed to foreshadow
an early advance In leather, and the trade
Is prepared to see a 2 to 3-eent advance In
certain grades'. United States Company
people believe thnt there will be consider
able excitement In the leather market be
fore long, and that it will be due to a
leather shortage. They claim that their
tanneries have been running on short time
for a long time, many of them having been
closed down entirely for months, and that
the company has produced no more than
60 per cent of its usual union leather out
put, that its hemlock output has also been
considerably curtailed, and that as a re
sult of this any great demand for leather
will run the trade Into a leather shortage.

The Chicago Timberman gives the follow
ing summary of the year's lumber exports
from all the United States ports: "The
quantity of our exports or forest products
for the year ending June 30, 1897, as com
pared with those of the year ending June
30, 1887, shows an increase of slightly over
100 per cent., and as compared with the
average for the live years beglnningVune
30, 1886, shows an Increase of a fraction less
than 60 per cent. The total value of our ex
ports of domestic forest and lumber prod
ucts for the year ending June 30, 1597, as
compared with the previous twelve months,
was $39,624,800, against $31,947,108, or an in
crease of over 24 per cent. Our lumber ex
ports to the United Kingdom for the years
ending June 30, 1896 and 1897, have been—
total, 1596, $7,920,458; 1897, $11,580,663. During
the year ending June 30, 1897, we furnished
the republic of Mexico with lumber to the
value of $2,181,098, against a value of $1,611,
--477 for the preceding twelve months, an In
crease of over 35 per cent."

Dun & Co.'s Review
NEW YORK, «ept. 3.— R. G. Dun & Cos.
weekly review of trade will say tomorrow:
Failures during August were ln number
not 17 per cent less than ih August, 1896, but
In amount of liabilities 70.S per cent smaller.
July and August show a larger average
of liabilities per failure than have ever
been known in any year, or even In a quar
ter, of the twenty-three years R. G. Dun
& Co. have kept quarterly records. The
Improvement Is also well distributed, ex
tending to nearly every important branch
of business, but In clothing, jewelry and
unclassified trading only two months of the
past forty-seven have shown smaller fail
ures; In general stores and furniture, only
three; ln groceries, hats and Iron manu
facture, only four; in chemical maunfac
tura, only live, and in clothing manufac
tures, only six months of the forty-seven.
The ratio of defaulted liabilities to pay
ments at clearing houses has been smaller
In July and August than ln any other
month since early ln 1893. August was the
first month in which the dally average of
settlements through clearing houses ex
ceeded materially that of the correspond
ing month of 1892, the excess at the princi
pal cities being 12.3 per cent. Nor Is this
due. as might be supposed, to activity In

Bradstreet's Report
NEW YORK, Sept. 3.—Bradstreet's to
morrow will say: Previous activity lit all
lines of trade is maintained. Some whole
sale merchants, at Western centers report
the largest volume of August trade on
record. There has been an increase in the
consumption of cotton by southern mills.
Western iron and steel mills have orders
to keep them busy until Jan. Ist. In the
central western states the bituminous coal
strike litis hatl a further depressing effect
upon the general Industrial situation. At
the northwest some commercial houses
have had to work over-time to meet the
demand for goods, and the warm weather
is reported to have practically assured
the Indian corn crop. On the Pacific coast
wheat exports have been slacked by Ina
bility to secure crews for vessels. Mercan
tile collections have greatly improved in
some sections. Last week's general and
unprecedented expansion of prices for
staples is continued. Wool, cotton and
woolen goods, hides, leather, white pine
lumber, sashes and doors, iron and steel
bars, billets and rods l ,, wire nails, barbed
wire and southern foundry Iron, wheat,
lard and flour have advanced and higher
prices are expected for boots and shoes.
Lower prices are recorded for cotton,
wheat, flour and coffee, while those for
oats. pork, print cloths, petroleum and
cdal are unchanged. The week's exports of
wheat are the largest, with two exceptions,
the second week of September and the
fourth week of August, 1891. Total ship
ments amount to 6.268.247 bushels, against
5,149.653 bushels last week, 3,369.8(13 bushels
last year, 2.260,261 btlshels in 1895, 3.207,309
bushels in IS9I and 4.902.000 bushels In 1893.
There are only 196 business failures re
ported throughout the United States this
week, against 210 last, 336 In the week a
year ago, 184 two years ago, 207 three
years ago and 379 in the like week of 1893.
There are 30 business failures reported
from Canada this week. Last week the
total was 39 and a year ago it was 30.
FINANCIAL REVIEW
Bradstreet's review of the stock market
will say: Stock prices have continued to
advance this week, and the trading has
been on an exceedingly large scale. The
market has been at times excited, and
while manipulation by bull leaders and
cliques is apparent, tihere has' also been n
growth of public participation. The mar
ket was influenced by denials that there
is any widespread or serious damage to
spring wheat and by reports minimizing
the effects of frost In the corn belt. The
western railroads are stated to be over
burdened with grain freight, and the bus
iness has spread to the trunk line roads
and those of the south and southwest. The
improvement in the iron trade Is consid
ered a most important factor for the rail
roads, while the expected settlement of the
soft-coal miners' strike will remove the
only disturbing circumstance of Import
ance. Railroad earnings, almost without
exception, show large increases Most of
the speculative movements which have
been based on reports as to the probable
or possible Increase of dividends, or the
payment of them by companies which have
not heretofore yielded a return upon their
stocks. Low-priced securities have been
the object of considerable attention and
some buyln'f. On Friday the market was
active, strong and excited under the lead
of St. Paul and the granger stocks gener
ally.
ON 'CHANGE
What Was Done Yesterday on Wall
Street
NEW YORK, Sept. 3.—Today's market
was more regular than that of yester
day, the notable advances not being so
pulpably manipulated and the concurrent
profit-taking in other stocks not being on
so large a scale. The market throughout
was stronger and the average level of
prices raised further than yesterday. Thers
was a decrease of activity in Industrial
stocks, and the dealings in standard rail
way shares were largely augmented, the
buying through commission houses being
confident and on a lrge scale. The volume
of trading in the Vanderbilt group, which
had such a conspicuous part In yesterday's
market, showed a considerable falling off,
but they retained the sharp gains made
yesterday, and closed tonight higher. Sugar
moved up and down in a feverish and
erratic manner over a range of five points,
a new high record at 159%, and as low as
14(1%. Many stocks that have been under
stress of profit-taking moved up today.
This was notably true of the internation
als. Union Pacific, on the report that the
government would oppose the foreclosure
sale on which Is based the reorganiza
tion, lost a fraction. London prices for
Americans were higher, and London
bought about 10,000 shares here for bal
ance. The aggregate sales of all stocks
approximated 700,000 shares. Bonds were
active and higher. The total sales were
$3,500.000. United States registered 4's sold
at 112*4: 4's coupon at 126, and coupon s's
at 114%. Total sales, $25,000.
It was evident from the action of to
day's wheat market that the bull eleme nt
Is still lacking in aggressive courage. They
had the market In their grasp all the
morning, except for a weak spot at tho
opening, but threw up their hands ln the
last hour, despite tho fact that exporters
picked up about sixty loads of wheat at
New York and out-ports. The Chicago
pool, after giving the market some assist
ance early in the day, mysteriously with
drew its support. December had been car
ried up to 98%, when a storm of selling
orders struck the market, bearing it down
to 96%, from whence It rallied to 97 at the
close. Sellers were aided by cables, par
ticularly the French markets, which, al
though opening steadier than expected,
weakened sharply during the day, and
closed 30 to 35 points off on wheat and 70
points lower on flour. The Liverpool de
cline was 1%1?1% for the day, after having
at one time been 1%*J1% lower than last
night. Foreign houses had fair orders on
the buying side, but also sold rather freely
around the opening. Seaboard clearances
of wheat were again heavy today from all
ports. The total this week, according to
official exchange reports. Is already a mil
lon bushels ahead of the same period one
week ago. Included among the shipments
from New York was a steamer from
France, carrying 140.000 bushels, this be
ing the second largest shipment of the
kind this year. Baltimore and Newport
News were among the heaviest out-port
shippers. Taking wheat and flour, total
clearances this week have easily reached
5,099.000 bushels. Final prices for the day
.were 1%f(2% under last night's figures.
The total range was from 9G%5j95%. Future
sales, 2,7u5,000 bushels.

European Markets
NEW YORK, Sept. 3.—The Evening
Post's London- financial cablegram says:
The stock markets were steady today, the
only feature being the buoyancy of Amer
icans, which are exciting increased atten
tion. The stimulus comes from New York,
but notwithstanding tho continued selling
here, a stettdy stream of buying also goes
on. To the onlooker the position of Amer
ica Is very Interesting. A constant ques
tion among city men, and which in a sense
wiil give a clue to the position, "Is the pub
lic here once again going to Step in at the
last and relieve the United States of stocks
at boom prices?" It Is generally believed
here that the rise will go still further, but
speculators certainly show much caution.
Prices closed tlrm at the best. Amid cheers,
Milwaukee has just been dealt ln at over
par. The New York buying today was
very large. The discount market here to
day shows an easier tone. It was rumored
that Japan had released some of its de
posit money, but this is not true. The
Paris bourse was firm antl the Berlin mar
ket was quiet after dullness.

CHICAGO MARKETS
Yesterday's Transactions on the Board
of Trade
CHICAGO, Sept. B.—Wheat started weak.
The opening prices at Liverpool were at a
decline of l%d and the start here was in
accordance with the bearishness denoted
at the English market. December was
offered at the opening of the market at 93
5/93%, or 15f1%c under yesterday's close.
The bulk of tho first transactions were at
from 93% to 93%, nnd fluctuations were
close around the opening ligures for three
or four minutes. Following that for half
an hour there was a gradual Improvement
until 94%, or within %c of yesterday's clos
ing price, was reached. A dispatch from.
New York reporting 470,000 bushels of
wheat taken for export was given as the
reason for the firmness shown In the re
covery. The very slight addition to the
contract wheat here, out of 278 cars in
spected Into store since yesterday morning,
was perhaps In the minds of speculators.
Only six cars were contract, and of these
five were No. 2 spring, a grade that cannot
he delivered on contracts made today for
any delivery beyond the present monih.
The advance reached 94% and then lc of it
was dropped in a few minutes, 93% being
the next stage of the fluctuations; then up
again to 94% In an equally sudden manner
and back oi c more—slowly this time—to
93%. The fluctuations, although sudden,
were not accompanied by much trading.
Scalpers were startled by the sudden
change-s and withdrew from the market,
and their absence added to the difficulty
commission houses experienced in finding
buyers or sellers when they had orders to
execute. New York wired early In the
day that the foreign demand was renewed
and fifteen loads taken by 10 o'clock. The
Atlantic port clearances of wheat and flour
were once more very heavy, the total being
866,000 bushels in wheat and flour. 681,700
bushels of It being ln the shape of wheat.
The market became very weak near the
close, and while the scalpers would not
touch it earlier in the day. except in the
most timid and gingerly manner, they
quickly caught on to the fact that it was
not being adequately supported near the
end ami sold freely. December declined
to 92% and closed at 92%. The closing
cables bad much to do with the weakness
displayed late in the session. Liverpool
closing [email protected]%d lower and Paris the equiva
lent of %5/l%c. Antwerp was unchanged.
Trade hi corn was less active and, the vol
ume of business much smaller. The mar
ket eased off near the close. At the open
ing the oats market was weak In common
with corn. This feeling was changed to
firmness later, only to grow weak again
toward the close. Trade, was quite active
In provisions during the early part of the
day. Later the demand became more ac
tive and', an improvement followed which
was lost when wheat and corn went down.
