The Northern California Power com
pany, consolidated, returns the follow
ing statement of earnings for the
month of August. 1912:
Gross earnings $6»*.023.3S
Operating and general expenses 15,68_.52
Net earnings $00.3:-J.06
Maiutenaace and depreciation reserve.. 9.478.08
•f40.560.9S
Interest on bonds and debentures 30,827.G2
Available for surplus and dividends. .$10,033.36
The gross for August, 1911, was $49,
--626.62, which shows that the company
has developed about $16,000 of addi
tional business. It was announced after
the directors' meeting yesterday that
the company had connected up this
summer a motor load of 3,618 horse
power, in mining, industrial and agri
cultural pursuits. The mining and in
tr'trial use of power may be expected
ft continue throughout the year, but
tht irrigation uses are. of course, con
fined to the dry part of the crop grow
ing season.
It may be argued, however, that the
winter brings its own call for elec
tric energy. The summer months con
tain less night hours, and. therefore,
less need of lighting, than the winter
months by a surprisingly large num
ber of hours. June has but 277 hours
of darkness, while December has 447
hours o 4 f darkness, and it is calculated
that the extra burning of lights In
winter compensate for the loss in reve
nue from irrigating purposes.
Northern California Power stock held
its price of $37.75 yesterday, 30 shares
changing hands at that figure.

Uncle Sam Gathering Facts
About Financial Conditions
NEW YORK, Sept. 18.—The financial community was rather more
interested today in the visit ln this city of a representative of the
treasury department than ln the movement of stocks. It is understood
the treasury official consulted with banking interests regarding a pos
sible money stringency for the purpose of laying exact facts before
•secretary MacVeagh.
Banks suffered a further loss of cash and call money, which opened
at 5 per cent, hovered around that point for the greater part of the
dAy Time rates were unchanged. When the stock market opened
most of the leading issues, particularly the anthracite shares. Harri
man and Hill issues and numerous industrials and special stocks were
up from substantial fractions to a point. Some of the gains were ex
tended 1n the forenoon.
Realizing sales and short selling wiped out a large part of the
rise In the early afternoon and ln the final hour, few if any Important
advances remained. Reading was weakest of the leaders, with consid
erable pressure against United States Steel and some of the coppers,
none of which had participated materially in the early upward move
ment.
Bonds were at first inclined to harden, but became irregular with
the late reactions in stocks. Total sales, par value $2,650,000.
united States government bonds were unchanged on call.
NEW YORK, Sept. 18.— E. F. Hutton & Co.'s wire says:
"Stocks today reacted In the late afternoon, transactions being en
tirely natural, Ln view of the realizing sales by those who had partici
pated in Tuesday's advance, and of short selling by those who had not.
' The street gave curiously little attention to the statement of for
eign commerce of the United States for August, which showed both in
imports and exports the largest totals of any corresponding month ln
the history of the country.
'TTtah copper sold off rather sharply on the strike of miners at the
Bingham Canyon camp. Tf the strike should continue for any consider
able length of time tt might cause an advance in the price of the
metal and help the market for the stocks of other copper companies.
• *_. r« renKth ,n Unlted States Rubber, which sold above 53, compared
with 51 at Tuesday close, was said to be in anticipation of conditions
in the crude rubber market, which would enable the company to ob
tain a supply of raw material on favorable terms. There was consid
erable pressure on Reading, and. compared with the high prices of the
forenoon, that stock suffered a larger decline than the other standard
issues. The increase of activity in the bond market was regarded as a
hopeful sign. We believe that the stock market Is shaping Itself for a
good move later."

MINING STOCKS
The market for Nevada mining securities was
a dull and rather narrow affair at tbe opening
session of the Bush street" exchange yesterday
morning, with trading of a desultory character.
Despite the dullness, the prominent stocks of
the southern Nevada camps had a steady tone
on a conspicuous absence of selling pressure, and
a few issues even showed small but noteworthy
gains on the day.
Goldfield •consolidated seemed to .be In line
for a recovery of some of the strength It lost
recently, for tt opened strong on the call at
$2.97i-. bid. and more than 300 shares found
new owners at $3 at tbe first informal session.
Tb»?rs was very little of this t-tock for sale,
and the price paid for tbe few lots, thst changed
hands waa bid for more at the close. Merger
Mines rolled up a creditable list of sales at
32 (933 c. closing firm at the outside figure. Jumbo
Extension recovered nearly all of the ground
lost on the precsdlng day, and. there wss only
a limited amount of stock obtainable at 34c
Florence waa firmly held at 90c. while Atlanta
and Combination Friv-tion had small trades at
previous prices. A large block of Nevada Hills
shares was sold at $1.85. and -tound Mountain
another outside mine, suddenly came to life
sfter an extended period of inactivity and waa
traded in to the extent of 1.000 shares at 40c
Tonopah Merger, the active leader of that
camp, continued to move upward and sold freely
at $1.0551.07-_. the latter figure being the
ruling price all day. North Star moved up a
Uttle and. aaide from s small recession in Jim
Bvttl*r, the balance of the list closed firm with
prices showing hardly any change on the day
Several of tbe north end Co_.stoc.ks. which
were raided by the short selling element Tues
day, sustained further small losses but the
sin-lines* of the trades indicated that the bear
raid had about run Its course. One trader
offered 100 shares of Mexteaji at $2.90 at the
opening, and later on 500 shares changed hands
at $2.95. Sierra Nevada. Consolidated Virginia
npbir snd Union were from lc to 2c lower on
the day. •

BOSTON, Sept. 18,— E. F. Hutton ft Co.'s
wire says: "Coppers showed further s lmprove
ment, with trading also better. Isle Boyale was
the leading feature, advancing on a renewal of
previous splendid buying. It-is confidently stated
that this company has unquestionably struck the
Kearsage lode and that an expert's report will
shortly be made on it. North Butte continued
to strengthen on the very best of buying and
advanced easily above 33 today. A resumption
of copper sales la being reported st top figures,
17% c. It is feared by prominent producers that
consumers may rush Into the market and bid
the price np on themselves, in which event it
is feared 20c may be reached quickly."

SAN FRANCISCO STOCK AND BOND EXCHANGE
■ -
Trading: was extremely ligrht on the Stock and Bond exchange yesterday,
h . e °ny ripple of Interest being the listing of Pacific Crude Oil. A block of
1.000 shares of the stock sold at 55
v.t °p r } n S valley Water company stock sold at $61.87% in the morning session,
which is equivalent to a price of $62.37%, as the stock is ex dividend 50 cents
?*. * **L e ' f l close <i 161.75 bid. $62.12 Vi asked. The street is alive with rumors,
mat the "Inside tip" is to buy the stock on the assurance that the city and the
company will agree to a deal very much along the lines proposed last Saturday
oy the company. This Is the rumor that has been started, and by a series of
figures it Is proved that the stock should be worth $75, according to the way
the figures are handled. This "tip,*' however, has been out for some time, but
the stock, beyond strengthening slightly, has not responded. In conservative
circles It is felt that the fact that the matter has to go to the people and be
approved by a two-thirds vote gives the buying on expectation that the city
will acquire the property a speculative complexion.

CHICAGO, Sept. 18.— E. F. Hutton * Co.'i
wire says:
"Wheat—lncreasing anxiety on ths part of
shorts in wheat has been seen today, along
with a decidedly big range of prices ss they
covered. The market proved quite unresponsive
to bearish news, but responded freely to buying,
The strength of corn was a constant help.
Quite a batch of bearish news and influences
in circulation at the outset was forgotten before
noon and only that of the other sort claime<i
attention. A potent Influence was the forecast
of lighter marketings by Kansas farmers, an
other was the reported sale of cash wheat from
Omaha to the gulf and of cash wheat from
here c. 1. f. Buffalo. The former transactions
were of a retail order, but they checked sales tn
Chicago from Missouri river points. Bsles at
Buffalo are claimed by rival grain concerns tr
have been made below the market and at a
loss If 6hlpped from Chicago. Total sales
of this sort were 275,000 and there have been
peddling milling sales of about 25,000 bushels
here besides. Export clearances, 120,000 bush
els. Exporters and brokers claim no export
business done today, although above cash sales
were to eastern export concerns. Liverpool re
ports large offers from Pacific coast and Russia,
and decreased call for Canadian and American
wheat. Sale of 100,000 bushels of No. 2 hard
was made today to go to store—not include* 1
in the above reported sales. Also No. 2 hard
winter 6old today at %c over September in
liberal quantities, which Is tjae lowest premium
in a long tfme.
"Corn—Killing frost In the northwestern edg«
of the corn belt, and frost extending down
into KaDsas, with forecast for frost tonight in
northwestern lowa, started a lot of short buying,
There were timultaneous estimates by severs
authorities among the crop experts that th.
drought damage in Nebraska, Kansas and Okla
homa has been more severe than previous l '
reported. Leading longs competed with W
shorts for current offerings-in the pit, the -,"■
petition naturally hoisting values constantly tf
day. reactions being few and fractional. Cssl
corn is higher here and at most outside markets
Shipping sales reported were 235,000 bushels.
"Oats—Advanced with other grains. Tiier>
was early selling by local traders, but go.-..'
buying by larger cash concerns and elevators
Offerings tightened as the market advanced
short interests being considerable. Trade wa
rather light much of the time early, but won
lively after the shorts started to cover. Ship
ping sales. 340.000.
"Provisions—Little additional liquidation hi
longs, following the much heavier selling yes
terday, but packers bought freely at the"slieh
decline and helped the market. Good Mppon
for October ribs aud selling from similar source!
of October lard. One eastern packer boughi
October lard while others sold."
