Union Pacific railroad stock for the first time in a year is sell
ing below 160 a share This stock carries with it a ten per cent divi
dend and the right to participate in a surplus of many million dol
lars held in the treasury of the company and yetit is selling at loss
than local bank stocks that pay but little larger dividends
We are informed that the Union Pacific is doing 20 per cent more
business on its main line west from Omaha to Green River than dur
ing the busiest period of last year and on this end of the Utah division
the traffic is almost as heavy
Evidently Union Pacific is not dropping because of any inherent
weakness but is falling in sympathy with the other stocks on Wall
Street which have felt the unsettling influence of new congressional
legislation adverse rulings of the Interstate Commerce commission
the uncertainty as to the supreme court decisions on government
prosecutions of trust organizations and the tightening of the money
marketWere these uncertainties to be swept away tomorrow the coun
try would once more go forward with the revival of business equal to
the wave of prosperity which spread over the land in 1906 and Union
Pacific would rebound to 200 a share or more
The one bright feature is that notwithstanding the depression
in stocks business in the west as made evident by Union Pacific
traffic continues good and in volume is greater than a year ago
California cities are calling for a reduction in tho price of electric
power and a Los Angeles authority says that last week the lighting
company that supplies Vallejo offered by way of compromise to re
duce rates from 11 cents to 8 cents per kilowatt hour In Los Ang
eles tho city council fixed the rate at 7 cents per kilowatt hour and
tine people on a referendum vote have confirmed the ordinance In
Pasadena and Riverside much lower rates than these prevail Some
interesting facts concerning electric light and power companies are
supplied by E F Soattergood the engineer in charge of the Los
Angeles aqueduct electrical power development in a statement re
cently issued by him Mr Scattergood wrote
In accordance with the sworn statement of the Edison company
to the Los Angeles city council its average cost of generation allow
ing 6 per cent interest on the value of its property as given in said
sworn statement is 1446 cents per kilowatt hour its average selling
price to railways is 0722 cent per kilowatt hour j the amount of
energy sold by it within the city limits during the yeear 1909 for light
and commercial power exclusive of railways was 16 964265 and
the amount of energy sold to railroads during the same year was 26
128012 kilowatt hours In other words approximately 60 per cent
of the electrical energy sold by the Edison company in the city dur
ing 1909 was sold to railway companies at approximately onehalf
the average cost of generation in accordance with their own sworn
statement Selling 60 per cent of their generated energy at 0722
while the average generated cost is 1445 makes it necessary to charge
a generating cost of 2630 cents per kilowatt hour against the remain
ing 40 per cent in other words a price about three and a half times
that charged to the railway companies in order to make a proper
showing on the generating side of thqir business
It is true that the generated cost of electrical energy for the
lighting business is about 113 to 112 times the generating cost for
the railway business because of the difference in the character of the
load but this is very different from 3 12 times pointed out above as
the condition existing with the Edison company
Modern progress is sometimes a heartless master Here is a
story from San Francisco of an inventive genius who has supplied the
government with a machine for counting money which in the mint
in that city has displaced thirtyfive women all civil service em
ployes who had worked for years but are now thrown out to seek
other work 1
Uncle Sam has been trying for years to increase the capacity of
his mints and at the same time reduce the operating expenses Re
cently an inventor named Lambert assistant superintendent of the
machinery at the Philadelphia mint produced a machine which will
count 40000 pieces a day or 800000 in gold coin Lambert has been
installing three of these machines
Many of the women displaced arc of mature years some being
more than fifty and for nearly half of their lives they have been sit
ting at tables in the mint weighing coins They have become experts
in the work and capable of weighing 7000 coins in a day but the
most capable woman is unable to compete with a machine that weighs
The machines are six feet long and four feet high They are
equipped with ten feeders each in which the coins are placed The
feeders are kept full by the operator a man With incredible rapidity
the coins are dropped into a basket weighed and thrown out If they
are ever so slightly overweight they are thrown into one receptacle
If ever so light into another and if standard are ready for stamping I
and weighing It has been found necessary to have the machines I
operated by men because of their mechanical delicacy and the neces
sity for removing heavy boxes of coins
The new machines however do not adjust the weight and a few
of the women will be kept for that work until the machinist perfects
an adjusting machine the invention of an employe This it is believed
avill be in working order within a month
The story of the displacing of these women is but a repetition of
the displacements which have been going on for years as inventive
ability has asserted itself In the long run all mankind is benefited
by the changes but thousands are made to suffer for the good of the
1 whole body of society
A writer of authority on diplomatic affairs commenting on the
treaty between Japan and Russia made public yesterday says the
United States has made a mistake in interfering in Chinese affairs He
Much interest is shown in Germany in regard to the new Russo
Japanese treaty covering the Manchurian situation It seems to some
German authorities to be directly aimed at the United States and to
be the answer of Russia and Japan to former Secreetary Hays in
sistence on a pledge to maintain the open door in Manchuria and
the proposal of Secretary Knox to neutralize the Manchurian rail
It would be considered an intrusion should any power other than
Russia and Japan each within its respective sphere of influence
back up its citizens or subjects in an effort to obtain concessions for
constructing a railroad operating mines or engaging in any other en
terprise requiring special authority from the Ohinese government
It is stated that Americans are interested in a proposed railroad in
Manchuria and there is some German opinion to the effect that Russia
and Japan will insist that the American proposals shall be dropped
Probably tho Germans ore also wondering what the United
States will do about it should such be the case
The international situation is peculiar Manchuria is Chinese
territory By tho treaty of Portsmouth both Russia and Japan ex
prossly agree to recognize tho sovereignty of China within that ter
ritory And yet Russia and Japan deliberately make a treaty if
this rumor is correctprohibiting China from exercising in favor
of any other nation one of the most common functions of a sov
ereign power

the long heralded Manchurian con
vention between Japan and Russia
signed July 1 at SL Petersburg was
made public last night It IB one of
t c shortest Important treaties fit
modern times being Just 237 words in
length It follows
Tho imperial government of Japan
and thelmperlal government of Russia
sincerely attach to tho principles es
tn tablished the convention conclud
ed between them on tho 30th of July
1907 and desirous to develop tho ef
fects of that convention with a view
to the consolidation opace in the
extreme east have agreed to complete
the said arrangement by the following
Article IWith the object of facil
itating communication an dde eloping
the commerce of nations the two high
contracting parties mutually engage
to lend each other their friendly co
operation with a view to the ameli
oration of their respective railway
lines In Manchuria and the Improve
ment of tho connecting service of the

high contracting parties shall in each
case enter into communication with
each other nl order to arrive at an
understanding as to the measures they I
may Judge it necessary to take for tho
maintenance of said status puo
Presented by Both Sides
Tho convention had been presented
to the state department by both the
Risslan and Japanese ambassadors
Tho notes of transmission were al
most as Interesting as the agreement
Baron Hosen the Russian ambassa
dor fainted in his note that he was
Instructed In making the communi
cation to express to the secretary of
state tho hope that he would find In
the convention which was described
as reaffirming Russias peaceful re
lation with Japan and as being di
rected neither against the Interests
of China or those of any other pow
er a new pledge of stability and gen
eral peace In the far east
Ambassador TJchlda of Japan In his
communication to the secretary of
state bald he was Instructed to make
similar representations
Just hefore the state department
closed today a dispatch was receiv
ed from the American embassy at
Toklo setting forth more fully the
attitude of Japan In drafting tho now
treaty and seemingly disposing of tho
rumor that a secret treaty had been
signed by the two countries it was
staled that the ncgqtlatlonu lhat roe
suited In the signing of the St Peters
burg convention began lost Novem
Heralded us n direct and powerful
blow at tho United States it Is un
derstood that officials of this govern
ment regard the convention itself us
little more than a harmless appon
