NEW TOHK. Dec. 25. While the j car
now closing has not been an exceptional
one in respect to speculative activity. It
lias witnessed sonic ol the mest remark
able developments that have ever occurred
In the f.nancial and commercial history
of the country. The Industrial combina
tions, that were formed and promoted in
1S3S-U09 were naturally regarded as
marking a great advance in the business
of the country. Time has demonstrated,
however., that the movement Included
many injudicious capitalizations that were
productive of great loss to Investors.
The distinctive feature of the progress
made this year has been its substantial
character. In the first place. Important
financial legislation was enacted compara
tively, early In the j ear. The events
enumerated have, with the usual good for
tune of this country, been supplemented
by excellent crops, particularly in the
South, where prosperity teemed most de
sirable, for both political and economic
reasons. It Is estimated that the cotlon
prcducins State's have realized fully $15,
000,000 more for their staple crop than
they did last vesr. Simultaneously, there
has been a revival of activity in the iron
end copper industries, which Is also unac
companied by noteworthy speculative
Today's market, though not equal to
that of last Saturday in the matter of to
tal transactions, was nevertheless vcry
actlvc. The collapse In the West Austra
lian inlnlrsr marl-et in London induced
heavy selling of stocks here by foreign ar
bitrage houses at the opening. Thsy sold
upward rf iO.OOO shares ot various stocks,
but these- were absorbed no rapidly that
the depression in prices at the opening
lasted only a few miuutes. St. Paul was
again the leader cf the market in even
respect, closing ct practicall the highest
price, which showed a net gain, of 3 5-S
Other members ot the railway list that
made further contributions to the day's
business were Union Pacific, Xc.w York
Central, Brooklyn Rapid Transit, and
Texas Pacific. They enjoyed net advances
averaging more than a point Savcral
sjoakH that were ccrspicuous in the mar
ket earlier In the week, like Northern Pacific-Issues,
Srie issues, Ontario and West
ern, and Atchison Issues, were compara
tively neglected. There was a continua
tion of the upward movement in Delaware
and Hudson, while Lackawanna on large
transactions for that stock, rose 3 1-1
points. Other less active issues that made
ncteworthy progress toward higher fig
ures were Illinois Central. Great North
ern preferred, "Big Four" common, and
Mobile and Ohio.
In the industrial list Sugar Kenning
again held the first place. After en early
deillne of nearly two points It rallied
nearly five points and retained fully half
r.f the maximum improvement. The Etreet
Is still in the dark as to what has taken
rlare between various concerns In the su
gar rcfinrag and coffee roasting business J
ana u is. possible mat. tnc puuue win
never be Xully Informed as to hb facts.
It can be- stated without fear of contra
diction, however, that the cutting of prices
on coffee prepared for consumption has '
ceased, and it would not be surprising if ,
an advance in tne price or. mat commodity
by bath of the principal producers were
announced any day.
Other Industrials that made good show
Irgs were National Tube common, Ameri
can Car and Foundry preferre-., and United
States Rubber issues. A feature of the
week has been material advances in the
express stocks on very light trading. The
express companies are, of course, partici
pating in the increasing prosperity of the
country, but the rise In the prices of their
shares has suggested the possibility of
combination, or, in the case of some, the
distribution of accumulated treasury as
sets. Tho weekly statement cf urerages of the
associated banks conforms more closely
than usual to the known movements of
money, the gain In lawful money being
only about 5400,000 larger than the usual
The increase in cash was ?5,37j,000. The
expansion cf the leans was not large, con
sidering the great activity on the stock
exchange this week and borrowings Inci
dental to the end of the year. The state
ment was unusually consistent in that the
sum of the increase in loans and of the In
crease la cash Is practically equal to the
increase In the deposits. The net result
brings the surplus reserve up to ?11,5,S00.
The statement as a whole must be re
garded as extremely satisfactory, particu
larly for this season of the year.

There Is one moro market day In the
year 1900, but It is proper to consider the
close of.lait week. In a nay, as the close
of the yar also, and to make comparisons,
using yesterday's prices and movements
SB a basis. It is entirely probable that tho
market tomorrow will be strong, and that
prices made tomorrow will be higher
rather than lower than yesterday's. The
year and the century thus end In a blaze
cf glory with the highest prices on record
and with both insiders and the public be
lievers in Htlll higher prices next year. The
-past sis months ffivc seen a steadily in-

crictlng- boom, such as no one has ever
v Itn seed before The advances havo been
larger and more persistent than ever be
fore. The decline i ..have been of no im
portance. Bid r.ew and influences usually
ln'mlc.-l to bull movements have bal no
effect in st'jnmlnK the tide. Fears in Wall
Fir.-et of a Democratic- vlctery at the polls
did not prevent a big advance in I rices be
fore the eUctlcn, and this was an unique
experience far tho market. Tears of tigat
mency did not push down prices during
December, .tr they do almost alnr.s. Bad
bank KtaU'.reutF, which at tl-aes threat
ened to record a deficit in the reserve fund,
did not prevent bulges in prices on Patur
inys, followed by even bigger advances on
liondajs. Tho level of price has gone up
from ten to sixty points, and belter yet
the largest advances havo almpst all ben
in the best securities in tho market, and
the smallest in the Industrials aud the
"specialties" generally. All the Pacific se
curities nearly all tha Southern and
SoiithvvettErn stocks, the truLk line se

are all selling above any previous lecord.

The reasors that have worked toc-ther
to prcduce the bocm and that will con
tinue It for several months to come, ac
cording to the opinions of some conserva
tive people in the financial world, are
numerous a'nd important The reports of
railway earnings received during the past
year are an index to one rf the bullish
Items In thb xifuaticn. When th lail
was's arc earning mere money than ever
before, when their earnings have been
increasing by leaps and bounds for six
3cars past. It Is not surprising that the
railway securities should advance m
price. When added lo 'this fact is the
Immense 'deal' amocglio railway mag
nates to secure complete harmony in the
future 5sn"d,in3ure'stiible and profits'blo
ratesthe, surprising fact is that the ad
vance did cot start sooner and has not
extended further. The December gross
earnings are the largest on record for the
month. Tho Increase in earnings for tho
second week of December wa about S
per cent and the increase for tho third
vvcek so far cs the statements have been
received was at least 10 per cent. More
and more lines that have been showing
decreases during the dull months of the
Slimmer are now swinging Into line with
large increases regularly. The grangers
and the Pacific line.- which felt the effect
of a poor wheat crop-for some months,
now show lminene returns every week,
as 'witness the weekly statements cf the
SU Paul and the Northern Pacific.
Tbe November net earnings statements,
too, are nearly all excellent. In a few
instances where special conditions have
intervened, as In the case of the anthra
cite coalers, vlth their expensive strike,
these net earnings are not the best on
record, but throughout, the countrv gen
erally the showing has never before been
so good. The result iof this great pros
perity for the rallwajs will, of course,
be that dividends will be Increased where
they hare not been already. Stocks that
have never been on the dividend list will
begin to participate In the disbursements.
This kind of argument is the best in the
Cheap money furnishes an inducement
to ..investors and speculators the Impor
tance of which can hardly be over-estimated.
Twenty years ago the high-priced
grangers wen' selling even above their
present level, and the general level of
prices was nearly as high as It Is now.
At that time money was loaning regularly
at, .nearly, double the rates that can be
obtained now. Government bonds bore a
higher -rate' of Interest. There wcro no
2 per cents and no 3 per cents. Railway
bonds were J per cents usually. A stock
that paid a dividend of 6 per cent regular
ly had to compete with any number of
other Investments that paid as well. Now
Investments are getting down to a 3 and
3 1-2 per cent basis very rapidly. This
will mean that, other things being equal,
railway and Industrial stocks will sell at
from CO to 1C0 per cent higher than they
did twenty years ago.
Of general business conditions, the pros
perity oX. the Iron trade, tho bigness cf the
crops and the high prices obtained In the
past two ymrs, the development of Amer
ican manufactures, the famino of coal in
the outside world and the big demand for
it here, the tremendous increase of the
export trade, the confidence of business
men In general, there has been enough
written already and reiterated many times
to convince most Wall Street people that
the period of great expansion is arriving.
This makes public buying, and also It has
made during the past six months the
largest buying for insiders that has ever
taken place. Intrinsic conditions are
much, but when they are present in the
fullest degree It U still needful that the
insiders shall absorb stocks and boom
prices and that the public shall follow
them-. - .
In one or two Instances securities have
advanced further than careful people ex
pected from the known facts regarding
their intrinsic value, but In all such cases
there is the large probability that the
public has not known all the facts. The
skyrocketing of Northern Pacific and St,
Paul are Instances of this kind. St. Paul :s
selling higher than Government bonds."
At its present price the return to the in
vestor Is only 3.4 per cent. Northern Pa
cific has been put on a 4 per cent basis
only a short time, and many people con
sidered this action of tho directors a fool
hardy one. But now it Is discovered that
there is tho "community of ownership"
In the Northwest, if not even closer ties
between these lines, and the Importance of
this is so great that these prices are no
longer to be considered too high. They
arc not nearly as high as they will be, in
all probability. If all that is promised is
developed during the coming two or three
The bank statement yesterday was an
excellent one. The surplus reserve is now
$12,525,500. as tho result of an increase
of more than $2,000,000. The cash nbowed
an Increase of nearly $6,000,000. The fig
ures are an follows:
The advance of St. Paul, and to a lesser
extent In Ncrt'.crn Pacific, was the sensa
tion yesterday. St, Paul boomed up to
147r the highest price for many years, and
ono that the majority of street people
would have considered entirely out of the
question a few weeks ago. On a 5 per
cent basis, of course, such a price is not
Justified even in such a good stock as St.
Paul, but there seems Ilttlo reason to
W I teeth veru Mahf.
doubt that the stock will be pu on a G
per cent baMs. Sdch a dividend is more
than justified by earnings and prospects.
But In addition to the outlook foe a larger
dividend there Is the talk of tho railway
deal In the West. The street heard from
what seemed to bo,, in cscellost source
jesterday that there U to be an an
nouncement cf great import ntc regard
ing this deal tomorow. The close on St.
Paul was close to tho op price, and a
bulge tomorrow woti'd not be a surprise
Northern Pacific common and r referred
both Jumped shaiply to very nearly the
top prices of the .movement. This com
pany was included in the talk cf the deal
with the St. Paul, .and some ot the In
siders were heavy bujers of the Stock.
Union Pacific common and preferred also"
boomed rcrhaps in sjmrnthy with North
ern Pacific. The common stock advanced
to well above 7l, making new high price
The weakness of Burlington In view of
the extreme buoyancy of St, Paul. was one
of the features ot the market. The stock
closed lower yesterday thin It did on Tr'
day. The explanation of the declire is
to be found In the statement of the com
pany for November, showing a docrcase
In surplus of $227,765. But it cannot bo
doubted that the stock will soon begin to
participate In the boom.
Leather common stock, which filled lta
friends with hope on Priiliy. turned
rather weak jesterday and closed below
The steel securities barely held. their
own. but were sufficiently actlvo to con
vince careful people that they are likely
to advance sharply at any time. The be
ginning of the new year will be followed
shortly by a series .cf statements fiom
these companies that will bo convincing
arguments in favor of the stocks. There
Is a steady absorption of the Federal
Steel and the Steel and Wire securities
The Big Four statement for November
shows a slight decrease in net earnings,
$11,732. The St. Louis and San Francisco
November not shOTS an increase of
Sugar recovered well from Its slump of
Friday and yesterday's openln;, but did
not reach Its top price at ary time. At
the opening it sold down to 39, a break
of more than six points, from the high
price. Its high for the day was 14? 3-4,
and it closed near this figure. There was
no new gcsslp regarding It. Sugar Is a
dangerous stock to speculate In.

CHICAGO, lice. 29. There was more
excitement and trade In wheat today than
for some time. The market had a range
of 2 cents. May opening at 73 1-4, which
was low, selling up to 75 3-8, closing at
75 l-875 1-4. There was heavy covering
for short account and probably as much
Investment buying. The outside trade van
much larger. The Incentive for today's
sharp advance was due to the long-look-td-for
falling off in Northwestern le
ceipts. The advance at Liverpool was CIS
appointing in faco of yesterday's Im
provement hcic, being up only 1-Sd. Con
tinental markets wero generally unchang

few thousand bushels larger than last
year's. Clearances were small, 329,000
bushels. There were bids hero early for
cash wheat hut the advance checked busi
ness. There was nothing reported from
Corn shorts were again compelled to
cover. A prominent local operator who
has been short a large line of May corn,
was tho most conspicuous buyer. Leal
traders wero generally on the buying side
and offerings were light. The January
and June deliveries were rather neglected.
Country offerings continue light. Three
hundred and forty care today with 465
estimated for Monday.
Oats weru strong with further buying
by the local bull Interest and covering
by shorts. The strength in wheat and
corn helped tills niaS.et Shippers rep rt
a good cash demand. jiTouoy's receipts

BANKING AND BUSINESS NOTES.
I Local flattens of Interest in Spi-cu-latorH
There is presented herewith an Impor
f tint table ahovvlnc? the condition ot the
j national banks and trust companies of
' the District, according to their December
, reports to tho Comptroller of the Cur
rency, published heretofore in The Times
and other newspapers. The table has been
carefully prepared, aUd It makes an ex
cellent general exhibit, easily understood,
that can be secured in no other way.
Tho showing l"i a tine one, according to
some of the best financial authorities in
the District The table is particjlarly
Interesting al this time, as thp figures
arc virtually those of the end of the year
1900 and the end of the century. The
volume of business transacted by each
Institution is shown, as well as that of
tho entire list In the aggregate. A good
Idea may be obtained from the figures,
also, cf the consistency of tho business
as well as tho conservatism and sound
ness of each and all the Institutions.
The smallest reserve of cash against im
mediate liabilities held by nny of the
banks Is 17 per cenb; the largest 49 per
cent. The average reserve is 35 per cent
of deposits and circulation. Considering
that circulating notes are provided for
by a redemption fund in the Treasury end
that a bank needs only to meet In emer
gencies the demands of depositors the av
erage provision of tho banks in the way
ot u reserve fund can bo said to be
upward of 50 per cent. It will be noted
that the loans and Investments in United
States bonds and othcrwiso of the banks
amount to about $30,OCO,000, leaving them
with a reserve fund on hand and in other
banks of about $12,000,000, or considerably
more than the amount of .the capital stock,
surplus fund, and undivided profits.
The statement of tho Union Trust and
Storage Company is not Included In this
table for the reason that It Is not as

The stck cf the new Union Trust and
Storage Company has been listed on the
local stock exchange, and some transac
tions have occurred In it during the pist
week. The price has been 103, which is
considered an excellent indication of the
confidence of local business men In the
management of the company- It Is to be
remembered in this connection that, the
company has not yet beguu business in a
number of Its departments, and that for
this reason its showing up to the present
time Is small, and In no way indicative of
Its possibilities. The officers of the com
pany express confidence that the business
of If 01 will be excellent
The week has been one of much inter
est in F Street, owing to much activity in
local securities and to deals and rumors
of deals, and one or two merry wars like
that made by President Ross, of the Wash
ington Telephone Company, against the
Chesapeake and Potomac. Tho telephone
situation has, perhaps, caused more com
ment than anything else. The Chesapeake
and rotomac ha3 been- advertising a re
duction of rates in two or three branches
of Its service, and sending to Its subscrib
ers and other business men a letter calling
attention to tho reductions proposed to
go Into effect with the first of the year.
This and a belief apparently general among
business men that the bill allowing the
new company will not become a law, have
made the buying of Potomac stock active,
and its price has advanced rapidly. Now
President Ross, of the- proposed Wash
ington Comrany, is out with a circular let
ter, attacking tho statement ot the Po
tomic that It will glvo a cheaper service.
The circular says that In reality the com
pany will make more money by Its pro
posed reductions than Its patrons will, be
cause It will be able to serve six parties
on one wire. It suggests that people using
this wire will not haVo a very good service,
because they will be always waiting
for some one else to get through talking.
The effect of the circular yesterday was
not felt as far as the stack of the Potomac
was concerned. It continued to advance ta
a most inspiriting way. and a. considerable
block of business was done at 73 1-2 and
74. Friends of both parties In this contest
arc caustic In their comments, and It seems
probable that there will be some hard
feeling engendcied before the fight is
over. President Ross says, In his circular,
for instance, that the rcducticn in rates by
the Potomac Is simply "to prevent the
Washington Company from obtaining its
The Gas situation Is also extremely In
teresting, though there ! not so much on
the surface here as there is in tho tele
phono situation. Tbcro is a well-defined
rumor that another syndicate wishes to
purchase the Washington Gas Company
and that It Is willing to pay $63 a share
for the stock. Another story, also heard
In usually .well-Informed quarters, is to
tho effect that the capital stock of the
company Is to bo doubled and two sharc3
given each stockholder for ono held by
him. This plan perhaps may be a part of
tho syndicate deal. As n result of these
rumors Gas -stock has been advancing
rapidly during the rast week and yester
day sold at the highest price on record,
62 5-8. The amount of stock sold yester
day was over 600 shares, and this with
tho rapid advanco in prlco is a very good
Indication that F Street believes tho ru
mors cf a deal at any rate, whether thcro
Is one or not. Gas sold at $60 two years
ago when the former deal for the con
trol of the cornpinv ws on foot
President Stevens of the" Washington
Traction and Electric Company is still at
the Lsad of that concern, despite the ru
r"r last week that he was about to resign.
Capital Traction, Mcrgcnthalor, Lan
ston, and one or two other securities have
been rather weuk during the past week,
apparently on account of bear tactics on
the part of room traders to a largo ex
tent. Mergcnthaler sold below 181 yHtcr
day, Capital Traction, at 103 1-2, and Lan
ston at 13 7-S.
THE GROWING OF HUSHB.OOMS.
Cultivation of lic Tender lenlcnt
"'" In Nether Itcrrltiiii.
(Krpni the Philadelphia Record.)
As an Industry tho growing of mush
rooms in ami about Philadelphia has as
sumed such proportions that nearly one
third of the thousand pounds ot this escu
lent edible necessary to tho Philadelphia
palate every day Is grown In the cellars
and dark places of city homes. Wlthfn
recent years mushrooms grown artificially
have been found so far superior in flavor
to outdoor crops, as found in the fields,
that the dozen or moro larger growers arc
now unable to supply the demands of the
restaurants and hotels.
The metropolitan markets no longer,
except perhaps in the summer months, de
pend on the country for their natural sup
ply of mushrooms. In fact, for over a
year this city, with many other cities, has
obtained thla gastronomic delight from
growers who raise mushrooms of fresh
ness and tenderness In bins. In hothouses,
or in cellars and other dark places during
tho winter, and In truck patches In the
summer months. With profit the cultiva
tion of mushrooms has teen pursued by
theso exnerlmentcrs. as In a space thirty
yards long and one yard wide $240 can bo
earned in a season by these growers.
"Did It ever occur to you that tho nu
tritive value of a pound of mushrooms
exceed the nutritive value of a pound of
beefsteak?" asked George C. Watson, the
seedsman. In speaking on the widespread
cultivation of mushrooms. "Very likely
not, and yet careful chemical analysis
has proved this to be true. Analysis has
shown also that mushrooms contain from
20 to 35 per cent of protein, while bread
contains only 8 per cent; oatmeal 10 per
cent; potatoes, 5 per cent, and barley
meal, 6 per cent. Tho mushroom, like the
oyster, is also rich in Iodine, and Dr.
Boerhave states that he can cure phthisis
with his diet. As a method of Introduc
ing iodine Into the sy3tcm, the eating of
mushrooms Is certainly a pleasant medi
There Is a popular Impression that the
mushroom Is a plant of extraordinary
rapidity of growth, but thla is not so In
reality, for on examination It is found
to be just as methodical as a potato In
Its growth and development. The pota
to's courso Is not a bad Illustration of
the process of underground growth which
the mushroom goes through. Tho thread
like filaments of the mushroom are some
what analogous to the roots, stems and
leaves of ordinary plants, the visible
parts stem, head, and gills being. In
fas:, the fructification, although in such
apparent preponderance to the either
parts. The seeds of the mushroom are
borne on the gills under the cap. They
arc so small as not to- be visible to tho
naked eye, and nothing Is known of their
life history after they fall from the plant.
In order tc prepare a mushroom bed It
Is necessary to procure good, fresh "ma
nure. Shake out the longest of the litter
and put the remainder In a heap, turn it
over three or four times, allowing two- or
three days between each turning. At the
last turning It will be found to have lost
Its rank, sour smell, and will then, bo in
good condition to make Into a bed. If the
bed is to be made in an ordinary mushroom
house it 13 advisable to give It a depth of
ten Inches In front and nineteen inches at
the back. The material should be firmly
beaten or trodden down hard, and after a
few dayp, when the temperature has fallen
to about 75 degrees. It may be spawned and
afterward covered with two Inches of soli.
The srevth ot the mushroom plant goes
on under the soil, and In fire or six weeks
the fruit or frutlfication appears above
ground. The bed will remain In bearing
from two to five months.
In the narrow sense of the word profit
the raising of the crop on a considerable
scale for marketing. It can be said that tho
returns are good, considering the time, la
bor, and other elements and comparing
them with requirements for the growing of
potatoes and other crops more familiar
to the average farmer. Two pounds of
mushrooms to the square foot Is consid
ered a fair average crop, which would net
80 cents at tho average price of the past
season in the Washington market
Mushrooms are practically a winter crop,
coming into ripeness between October and
April. They may bo grown in summer,
but they become infested with the larvae
of a small dipterous fly. maklrg them un
fit for food, unless grown In dfep quarries
or dark tunnels. As an Intrinsic food
value this addition, to the cuisine has be
come more recognized ns its cultivation
has Increased, and the prices have cor
