NEW YORK, Oct. 29.— The enor
mous influence which American prod
ucts are exerting in building up a
, credit balance abroad has been the
most signal development of the finan : !
cial situation today. Reports from all j
quarters show that - the great Amer
ican staples — wheat, cotton, copper,
tobacco, oil, meat — are on their
* to Europe, this being the' season of
the year when American products^aVe
marketed abroad. .The immediate ef
fect of these shipments is to give the
United States credit abroad, which can
b«* speedily converted into cash. Th«>.se
natural resources of the country prom
ise to exert oven greater influence than
the sale ot American securities abroad.
The foreign .sales of 1.000,000 pounds
of copper yesterday were supplemented
today by reports of similar heavy ex
ports, today's shipments alone giving
a foreign credit of $14,000,000. The
shipments of tobacco to Europe this
i rear promise to break all records. I
•\u25a0ft Europe will pay over 5100,000.000 for
TJnitcd States tobacco and much of this
f 'money will soon be available in this
market, as the contracts with Euro
pean importers call, for cash on de
Several- favorable events marked the
close of the financial day in. New York!.
* The engagement of $2,000,000 in gold
by the First national bank of Chicago
and of $500,000 by» a Boston bank
brought the total ' gold engagements
up to close to $20,000,000 in spite of
the cancellation of an order for $900,
* 000 by t the Russo-Chlnese bank upon
the ground that "the amount 'engaged
exceeds its needs. The raising of Ger
man bank rates to prevent America
from drawing German gold produces
little effect on the situation here, as
none of the gold engagements thus far
have been made in Germany. While
money at the stock exchange was lean
ing during most of the day at hjgh
rates, it fell near the close to 6 per
cent, offers of several million dollars
at that rate being made by several *of
the leading banks.
Comparative calm reigned ; among
Kew York bankers. They all realized
that the pressure lor money was not
over, but felt generally that unreason-
Ing panic was at^an end and that they
\u25a0would be able to meet reasonable de
mands ' for currency. These demands
are coming in considerable amounts
froxa tee west and south, where money
Js needed to move crops, and it Vl»
feared that the sections ' where the
movement is largest may. be more -or
less hampered in their efforts to ob
tain funds.
The general refusal to pay caEh for
\u25a0 hoarding in the west and aouth, as well
as in New York, it is believed, will pre
vent undue absorption of currency and
permit the employment of : what ,1s
available in the most effective manner.
The large banks of this city are gain
lag deposits from the banks _ which
have been under suspicion, and ' this
tends in a measure to concentrate
money where it can be used most ef-_
fectively; -but' on the other band -it
'creates debit balances at the clearing
house against the banks which arc los
ing deposits which are not always easy
' for them to meet without sharply cur
tailing their loans, even with the as
6i*tanee of clearing house certificates.
Runs upon the banks are practically
I over. Persons who present large checks
and ask for their payment in 'currency
f are invited to consult tbe^ bank officials.

Rogers Hints of Effort to
; Show $200,000 Was for
Interest on Bonds
: The . trial " of Tirey \u25a0 li'fk Ford, which j
has proceeded on its even s . way, took i
a sensational turn yesterday when the j
prosecution placed on the" stand- aj
witness who supplied .the link con- 1
necting the defendant with Abe Ruef.
The witness was Robert A. Perry, an j
assistant of William J. Burns;" who
had been shadowing ; Ruef, for five
months; in 1905 before? it, was .an
nounced that an investigation into
civic corruption^ had' been undertaken.
Perry testified tha'torf August 23,; 190«,
the day" Ford \u25a0 drew "?i 00.000 from the'
mint,hX^a<3 traced Ruef to Ford's :oTr"
flee- arid \u25a0 that the two remained together
' for almost aiT bourV-.Perry-rftferred'- to
| a'j memorandum * book \u25a0;• and ;wss \u25a0 aMcTto
give the exact , whereabouts'- of Ruef
'every minute of "the day. V' . . :'. ' v.;
In addition! to this. the rprosecution'
produced two \u25a0 waiters who had \u25a0' been
employed in the, Cosmos club, at Sutter
and Octaviastreets. V Both testified that
Ford and Ruef. -. with two companions,
had lunched there together during "the
month of, May, 1906.-, This ': was the
month in- which. the t'rolJpy'deal was ar' r
ranged.*- When the defense showed a
disposition to combat : .this, evidence
Heney offered to .corroborate, Jt. stat
ing that he had been a >guest at the
'Cosmos club on the day in question
and had seen Ford and Ruef together.
• Just as the day. was drawing; to j a
close the defense shot one of its arrows
that .had been held ln - reserve. Brpad
intimations were thrown- out that ' the
claim would bVmade' that the 5200.000
sent to' the mint from. the east had been
used to pay Interest on the bonds of
the - United -Railroads -held by -Brown
Brothers, the New York \ bankers. The
remarkable theory, as far as 'it was
elucidated' yesterday, , was .that the
money was sent from New York to the
San Francisco, mint, withdrawn In cur
rency/by Ford /and- sent back to New
York. '\u25a0'. \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0': \-pfH\ ' : . ''. " ' ]
. According to a < made^ in
court yesterday by Heney the prosecu- i
tion will close its case; after ,-an hoiir/s '
session this morning. The tip from
both fides .late last "-nigh T was that
Ruef would not • be" called as* a wltnes^.
Earl :Rogers- of - counsel -for the .de
fense declined to say yesterday, "whether
Ford "wouid be. placed upon, the' stand.
The '\u25a0'! impression about the ; courtroom
is r that *he .will "notl . • In *ckse'_ the^de
fense calls, no witnesses all the* testi-;
mony will be completed" today and ar«
guments will ' be begun before " night
fall. The case ? may,: therefore,": go to
the, jury tomorrow; or Friday..
A noticeable feature .of -yesterday's
proceedings was the 'comparatively
small part playedlby. Earl' Rogers. Dur
ing the • flrsV ttriasl s of $ Ford, The :; Call
stated . that/ some r dissatisfaction- had
arisen iin ] ' regard ; ,to> , the /."manner . in
,which. Rogers had conducted the; case
and - that' henceforth . he ; was to occupy
"a" less, conspicuous position. The change
was not made abruptly,' but \u25a0• gradually.
Attorneys -Ai: A: -Moore- and Stanley
Moore ha.ve_assumed a.^greater t part?of
the work. Rogers', efforts .yesterday
were 'confined to : the brief cross/exami
