MARKET LACKS
ACTIVE DEMAND
NEW YORK. Sept. l.^The
amount of business done in the
stock market today was swelled
considerably over yesterday's
total. The first hour's dealings,
in fact, crossed the day's total
for yesterday. This increase in
activity, however, by no means
brought the dealing into a state
of animation. The overwhelming
preponderance of the transactions
in Reading, Union Pacific and
United States Steel showed the
professional character of the
market and how little changed
it was in that respect.
The entire stagnation of de
mand for securities in itself
serves as encouragement to at
tack by the bears in the specula
tion. A movement of prices in
either direction was welcomed
by the board room traders as a
relief from the unprofitable stag
nation and they joined freely in
the day's movement in the three
most active stocks.
Colonel Roosevelt's address in
Kansas yesterday in its militant
attitude against the "special in
terests" was a subject of pro
fessej apprehension, on the part
of sellers of stocks.
Restriction of projects of im
provement and cutting down out
lay as far as possible were ad
mittedly on. the program for fu
ture months. A general policy of
retrenchment by railroads points
to reduced demand for such a
variety of commodities that the
list of industrial securities was
unfavorably affected.
United States Steel was con
spicuous In this respect.
Amalgamated Copper was a
companion in weakness. Exports
of copper during August reported
at 27,976 tons, were the largest
in any month since April of 1909,
but the price of the metal receded
in London and the copper securi
ties were sold with the rest of the
list.
The expected advance in the
Bank of England discount rate
did not occur but the private dis
count rate in London held firm,
Inroads in New York bank cash
are being made at a heavy rate,
indications pointing to an in
crease of $10,000,000 or upward in
that item for the week.
Bonds were easy, total sales,
par value, $1,476,000.
United States bonds were un
changed on call.
NEW YORK, Sept. 1. — E. F.
Hutton & Co.'s wire says: There
seems to be little explanation of
today's movement in stocks, which
was downward, other than the
selling of some -long commitments
by one or two large speculators,
ttlio returned from Europe with
in a week. These interests bought
storks on their arrival here and
endeavored to put the market up,
but met. stock' from insiders,
hence these operators threw their
holdings over yesterday and
today.
Insiders are not looking f6r and
do not. want outside interference,
which seems apparent. New York
Central and Pennsylvania earn
ings for July showed the recent
increase of the wage scale in
these properties by producing a
net loss for the month of over
51.000.000 each.
A large loss in cash by the
banks for the week is another
bearish item. Hence, it was not
surprising at bearish operations
today.

BOSTON. Sept. 1. — E. F. Hutton's Vire says:
"Market was absolutely dead. Nearly every
transaction was in odd lots, except a few in
Lake, whfch was the feature. . selling off two
points on mostly odd lots.' The market is in
:t waiting position and requires a leader. Oper
ators-do not look for any activity until New
lork snows an upward trend."
The Coiomercial Times says: "The recent
strike of ore on the 900 foot level of the prop
erty cf the Arizona Commercial copper com
pnny In Arizona . assures that company a large
producing mine, which will be able to produce
copper at about 9c a pound. Production will
begin wltMn' two or three months, as the
shalt Las bnt little over 100 feet to go to
get to the 900 foot level. The leached ore
on the 700 foot level corresponds to that of
the Old Dominion at the tenth level, and the
diamond drill, has shown that the same char
acter ol 6ulphlde deposits underly the leached
tone." \u25a0

MINING STOCKS
\u25a0«- : _ — : >
The Comstocks were active and higher yes
terday, with an active business in Ophir in
the afternoon. Ophir sold up to $1.62%; \u25a0 Con
solidated Virginia to $1.47% and Mexican to
$1.42%; The rise was in the face of news
of a temporary curtailment of the water sup
ply, neces-sary to run the hydraulic pumps at
tlie C. aud O. shaft through a sagebrush fire,
•which destroyed a portion of one of the water
company's flumes near five mile reservoir
Wednesday night. The mining superintendent,
however, wired to headquarters in this city that
the fire was out and that the damage to the
flumo would be soon repaired and that in the
meantime there was sufficient water to operate
the pumps so that there was no danger of the
lower levels of the mines being flooded.
The southern Nevadas were quiet.
The dividend of 15c per share declared by- the
Tonopah-Belmont mining company a few days
ago calls for the disbursement of $225,000.

dividends, the aggregate of all being about
$775,000. It is reported that the company will
soon install four Chilean mills, each of 50 tons
c.-ipnclty, ou the Belmont ground at Tonnpah.
This, la addition to the company's plant at
Millers, wiil give a total reduction power of
500 tons a : day.
The bullion tax statement of the Pittsburg-
Silver Peak gold mining company for the quar
ter ending June 30 shows a production of
44.549 tons of ore, the gross yield of which
was $193,170; cost of extracting, $59,104;
tmnsportation, $22,351; reduction. $104,045; net
value, 87,666; bullion tax, $226.16. Four thou
sand and forty-five tons of tailings were treated,
the gross value of which • was $'21,111; cost of
reduction. $5,791; net yield, $12,320: bulllou
tax. 5.3P3.46.
Goldfleld consolidated stock was called on the
New York Etock exchange yesterday.

New I'onnsylvania is installing a circulating
system and the company expects •to be • pump
in? nil more freely in two days. The large
holo 8 Inches in diameter has a, depth' of
0.550 feet md has given some trouble In pump
in?. The olrciilatlng system will free and
lighten the Lra-vy oil" and make the pumping
easier. The well has boon doing better than
300 barrels. v
The Palmer is still producing 9,000 barrels
I-os Angeles consumers of 5,000.000 barrels
of oil annually propose to organize an associa
tion for 'the purpose of purchasing oil- from
producers direct.
Tlie plans for the association will necessitate
the construction of extensive storage facilities
in I.ns Angeleti, and the building of a pipe line
between the oil country and ' that city.
It 'Is proposed to make contracts with pro
ducers and Ftore and distribute in Los .An
geles oil bought from them.
The Palmei oil company, one of the largest
independent oil producers in the state, la to.
compete with the Standard, Associated and
Union oil companies for handling the petro
leum output of California.
The project, as outlined by Vice President
J. C. Keinn Vau Ec, includes not only a sys
tem of p'pu lines, but a refinery at either
Gnviota or Oilport and a fleet of tank steamers
to carry the oil up and down the coast. About
$2,000,0fi0 i* to be spent at once.
The Va"ey oil company, which is operating
on ths very edge of the city limits of Ooalinga.
"truck a uusher which flowed over the top of
the derrick, according to a report received in
Fresno. A driller ou the well ran the baler
ltto the hole, and when it was pulled out the
well started to flow. The hole is not drilled
into the pand.
At present, although the agency is selling
much more oil than it did last month, it Is
still unable to keep pace with the supply,
which is much in excess of the demand and sale.
-The oil controlled by the agency, now in
storage. Is increasing at the rate of between
35.000 and 40,000 barrels per day, and even
then a large number of companies have closed
down their wells because of the heavy produc
tion in the fields. '

Future Grain and Provisions
CHICAGO, Sept. I.— ln the monthly settle
ment today more than 2.250.000 bushels of wheat
were delivered to commission traders, many <>f
whom proceeded to resell in the pit. \u25a0 Such a
heavy load forced the September option to the
largest discount at any time this season. lOVie
below May, and left the market as a whole at a
net decline of [email protected]*«c. Corn closed hie lower to
%c higher, oats &<§:l%c up and hog products
down [email protected]%c.
September wheat weakened whenever elevator
bupport was withdrawn, which happened fre
quently, although in general the warehousemen
bought September and sold other months. There
was no lack of news on the bear side. North
western wheat stocks Increased fully 900.000
bushels, compared with a very small gain a year
ago. The Bulgarian crop was reported 20.000.0(x)
bushels larger than 12 months previous and there
were dispatches asserting that Russia and Rou
manla were underselling America. On the other
hand it was asserted that export sales had been
made at Duluth and there was a late show of
strength at Liverpool attributed to sales of
Australian cargoes to the continent.- The close
here was steady with December V*^%c oft at
$1.03%@1.03% after fluctuations during the day
reaching from $1.03% to $1.04.
The corn trade was still a bit nervous as to
possibility of frost damage. December ranged
from 57% cto 57% c and closed a shade to l *<"

CHICAGO, Sept. I.— Wheat— E. F. Hutton &
Co.'s wire says: The market has been a rather
ragged and mostly a heavy affair today, diffec.
euces continuing to widen, the September dis
count, the largest now of any time on the crop,
being 10 1-4 c below May. Deliveries were heavy
at 2.350.000 bushels, and went to scattered com
mission concerns. The Jattcr have resold more
or less since, as September has weakened when
ever the elevator support was withdrawn. Ele
vators have bought September and resold for
other months, as heretofore. Northwest wheat
stocks have Increased over 900.0<X> bushels thus
far this week, against a very small gain a year
ago. Southwest arrivals are a little over last
year and total primary arrivals 1.036,000 bushels,
against 825,000 bushels. The Bulgarian crop is
officially reported 20.000,000 bushels larger than
a year ago, Russia and Roumanta are reported
by Antwerp cables as underselling America and
the drought in Argentina appears to have been
broken by good rains in Rosario, Buenos Aires
and Cordova provinces. Argentine shipments for
the week were estimated at 1.120,000 bushels,
against 258.000 bushels a year ago. India ship
ments were ri92,000 bushels, against 152.000
bushels a year ago, and expects to ship 632.000
bushels next week. Export bids are few rfnd
far below possible export limits. Nevertheless
there are claims of export sales of 72.000 bushels
of Manitoba wheat by Duluth exporters. Cash
demand for wheat here Is slim and confined to
elevators exclusively. Fall plowing is far ad-
vanced in the winter wheat country, threshing
also is far advanced and fall plowing is begun in
the Canadian northwest.
Corn — The market has been quite Irregular,
but changes have been wltfiln very narrow limits.
Trade in September is quite limited and ,that
month Is covering a wider range. Trade is -still
a little nervous over the possibility of frost
damage later, but buyers. were disappointed be
cause of failure of frost to show overnight. Fair
rains covering most of the corn belt overnight
are predicted for tonight or tomorrow. This
will help fill the corn, but Is a menace In case
frosts show, up early, as the crop is late. Local
cash sales of 00,000 bushels are reported. •"
Oats — The market has been a little excited to
day by far lighter deliveries than expected and
evidences of heavy purchases by eastern dealers,
who are holding- in cheap storage and hedge the
grain here mainly for December and May. Erro
neous reports that there were sales for export
grew out of the fact that eastern exporters
were among the concerns who bought the cash
oats. Deliveries were 955.000 bushels out of a
stock of "about 4.000.000- bushels, exclusive of
special bin holdings. Sales done here today were
620.000 bushels, mostly Buffalo, and a few to
Philadelphia. ..
