H jg THE OGDEN STANDARD-EXAMINER, MONDAY, MAY 17, 1920. " 1
Wall Street Professionals
Show Caution; Many
NEW YORK. May IT. Price
showed little chango at the quiet
opening of today's stock market. De-
velopments over the week-end and
tho probability of several important
1 decisions by the United States sup
remo court in the course of tho day
promoted further caution In trading
I circles. The usual leaders moved
' within a narrow area, petroleum and
food shares being the only issues to
vary moro than fractionally. Mexl
I can oils wore firm on latest news from
' that country, but an active selling
movement ensued within tho flr3t half
hour, cancelling all gains.
Tho professional character of the
market was again apparent from tho
, case with which prices reacted at the
1 first signs of renewed pressure. Pan
1 American and Mexican petroleums
i1 made extreme declines of 31-2 and
4S-1 points, respcctlely. Bethlehem.
Crucible, Replogle and Vanadium 2 to
31-2, Baldwin Locomotive 4 and At
lantic Gulf 3. Declines of 2 to 3 points
I accompanied the reaction in related
I specialties. Ralls, especially trans
1 continentals, broke 1 to 11-2 points.
I Little encouragement was offered by
I the money market, call loans open
j, ing at S per cent. Recurrent wealc
i ' ness in Liberty and Victory notes at
new low re.cords also added to tho
unsettlement of the forenoon. .
Recoveries of 1 to 2 points occurred
during tho mid-session, the weakest
issues of the morning being tho first
to rally. Tho market became listless
' on the moderate rebound, however,
the short interest uhowed a general
, disposition to hold off pending news
' from "Washington.

MINE INDUSTRY 1
IN Fi SHAPE
Still Room for Improvement,
However, Says New York
SALT LAKE. May 17. In an in
terview yesterday B. P. Mathewson
consulting; metallurgist of New York
city stated here that though the min
ing industry generally is In hotter
condition than some tlmo ago there
is still considerable room for Improve
ment. Mr. Mathcwson Is a well
known mining authority, a doctor of
science of tho Colorado school of
Mines, and is now on a tour of in
spection of western properties.
"The big trouble with tho mining
industry," said Mr. Mathewson, '"is
that there is a shortage of labor for
tho mines. Men aro finding more
'agreeable occupations. Many aro go
ing to the cities. Tho oil fields have
taken a great many moro than most
people think, and many have been
drawn to Europe. There Is a spo
clal slump In gold mining. That will
work Itself out along with tho high
cost of living. The gold miners wero
jubilant when the single standard was
established. Now. however, the silver
men have the better of them. Gold
dollars still aro orth one dollar each,
;but the value Is not what it was a
few ears ago.
j "Conditions generally will right
themselves, but it will take Lime, if
tho change wcro to bo made quickly
there would bo a panic. But there Is
no cause for pessimism now. Every
body who wants to work has the priv
ilege of doing so and ho can make
enough on which to live. Not only
that, but most workmen make Buffi
olent to bo very extravagant. Thero
havo been many clever financial
moves lately, but one of th,e smooth
est. In my opinion, was when the
German Electric company was
bought. It was purchased by Ameri
cans for marks, which are worth but
little. Tho company can buy Its cop
per from the parent company In
America, but Instead of sending tho
money here. It can be kept In Gor
; many and Invested there."
j Mr. Mathcwson probably Is best
I knmvn thi-mifh the west In connec
tion with tho smelter of the Anacbnda
company at Anaconda, Mont. Ho was
manager of. this smelter, which Is the
largest in the world, for fourteen
years, leaving there In the fall of
lit 16. After about a year with the
American Smelting & Refining com
pany, Mr. Mathewson decided that he
might as well turn his reputation to
his own advantage. He therefore
opened an office at 42 Broadway,
Xew York, and since then has been
remarkably successful, lie is a rec
ognized authority and cannot begin to
fill the demand for his services.
"Herbert Hoover will surprise a lot
of people this fall." said Mr. Mathew
son, when asked about politics. "He
will not be so strong In the first bal
loting, but will be there at the finish.
I know him personally and he is a
bralnly man and a wonderful organ
izer. "We hear lots about him in tho
! east and It has been said that If he
I should not be elected president ho will
; be made secretary of state and his
great ability thus -can be utilized."
Mr. Mathewson is a graduato of
McGill university in Montreal, but ho
began his work In Colorado, where he
worked eleven years before going to
Anaconda. In addition tq, his other
recent honors, ho is chairman of tho
Xew York division of the American
Institute of Mining Engineers.
"I am not going to pass up Mon
tana," said Mr. Mathewson, "but shall
be on hand for the state shoot In
Kalispell In July." Mr. Mathewson Is
a member of the Anaconda Rifle club
and he is a keen sportsman. He was
prominent among the curlers of Mon
tana and always took an active inter
est in outdoor sports.

Mies a year.
Tho moBt brilliant butterflies come
