COMMERCIAL AND FINANCIAL NEWS SPECIALLY REPORTED FOR THE CALL
MARKED ACTIVITY
IN WESTERN POWER
Preferred Securities Show
Greater Strength Here
and in New York
Application Expected in Few
Days for Listing $500,000
Armsby Stock
RAYMOND S. HARRIS
Interest in the movement now going
on in Western Power securities was in
creased yesterday by a strengthening
of Power preferred, which sold here for
$51.50. but changed hands in New \ork
for $53.50. Later it was bid for here
a Th* bonds; however, were ke T
beinsr offered locally down to $88.25,
though the official asking price on the
board was recorded as $88. to. In
York they changed hands as low as
JS7 75 This price, however, can not
be taken as a measure of the price here
as during the time the bonds brought
JSS.ST 1 " locally they were selling at
but $55.12% in New York.
ARMSBY PREFERRED L.ISTIXG
Within a day or two it is said appli
cation will be made for the listing on
the local exchange of the $500,000 of
7% cumulative preferred stock of the
Armsby company of New York, which
is being offered by Louis Sloss & Co.
simultaneously with William Salomon
& Co. of New "York.
This introduction into active Cali
fornia financial life of one of the new
industrial preferred stocks is interest
ing for many reasons. Thus far the
stock has been purchased nearly alto
gether for investment purposes because
of its yield, investors taking it with the
idea of holding on. Listing on the local
exchange, however, will open the mar
ket to the stocks so that an investor
desiring cash will be able to dispose of
his holdings readily.
The listing also shows the extent to
which the modern preferred stock is
entering the coast financial field. Loose-
Wiles Biscuit. Emerson-Brantingham
and other preferred stocks were par
tially placed among local investors, a?
was California Petroleum. These, of
course, have a New York market. But
the listing here of this California com
pany may be safely said to be the fore
runner of the financing of other in
dustries of the state by the same meth
od, which has long been employed in
London, and has found its way west
ward to the Pacific coast. Tt is signifi
cant in this connection, that William
Salomon & Co. recently sent a repre
sentative to establish himself in this
city. John O. Dresser.
Tt is reported that the Armsbv com
pany has just experienced the largest
September in its history. Their sales
of canned salmon. canned fruits,
raisins, beans and all lines of dried
fruits, with one exception, showed a,
material increase in volume as com
pared with a year ago.

other features, and should show well
in the company's surplus.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1912.
War Affects the Stock Market
Foreign Money Rates Advance
NEW YORK, Oct. 17.—Foreign conditions were again factors of pri
mary importance in the local stock market today. Formal declaration
of war by Turkey against Bulgaria and Servia called renewed attention
to the tense situation in eastern Europe, and advances in the British ana
French discount rates served as reminders of impending as well as cur
rent events at important continental centers. .
Of Europe's three leading financial institutions, the statement of tne
Imperial Bank of Germany was far and away the most favorable, o) s_
closing large gains in gold and cash, with a decided contraction of dis
counts. The British bank lost more gold, its liability reserves are mucn
under last year's and the 5 per cent discount is the highest in about two
years. The Bank of France also lost some gold and increased its discounts
by more than $37,000,000. ..
Firmness prevailed on the Paris bourse, while Berlin was reactionary
by reason of the Balkan troubles. ,
Money was dear in London as a result of bank rate and our securities
evidence inclination to sag. Later. London turned moderate buyer in this
market, again taking Amalgamated Copper and United States hteel.
Amalgamated Copper was the foremost feature of this market, sur
passing all other speculative favorites as to activity and width or move
ment. Shortly before the close announcement of the increase in the dlv '
dend from 4 per cent to 6 per cent became known, but the stock failed to
equal the figures of the morning, while the rest of the list lost none of its
early heaviness, in several important instances making lower prices.
The bond market was dull and heavy. Total sales, par value, aggre
gated $1,400,000.

NEW YORK, Oct. 17.— E. F. Hutton & fo.'s wiro says: "The market
was dull and a little reactionary today, with evidence toward the end of
a resumption of bearish operations by some of the large traders. It was
contended that the strength was no longer natural and that large inter
ests had liquidated a considerable part of the stock bought from Europe
in the. last couple of weeks. Bulls on Amalgamated were greatly im
pressed by the buying of 20.000 shares of the stock by C. D.BB ar &
Co but the fact that the price failed to get up to Wednesdays high le\el
appeared to indicate that quite a little liquidation had occurred.
"Bullish activity in Mexican Petroleum was accompanied by rumors
of an increase of the dividend from 4to 6 per cent The rise in that
issue helped California Petroleum, which had been under some pressure
'"ItVftS a-rsrued a in*favor of American' Linseed that thie was one of the
few companies whose stocks sell at low pricps which a-e in position to
lend money. The Linseed company was said to have a considerable sur-
PIUS "Corn n products was again well taken today, as was also International
Paper on favorable earning*. In view of a formal declaration of war by
Turkey the late reaction whs only natural and it is to be expected that
no pronounced advance will take place in our stock market until more
definite plans are announced toward safeguarding the peace of Europe.
We have no doubt that all efforts will be made by all concerned to localfze
preset Balkan c iv , n th d d
stimulus to the bull side and we believe the maxKet will respond to this
influence."

stocks that was cauved by the discovery of a
new stringer of ore in' Sierra Nevada had sub
sided to seine extent when the Bukli street ex
change opened. Sierra Nevada was still the
center of Interest, however, and the stock made
I very good showing in view of Wednesday's
heavy realising; movement that was induced by
the ri«e from 170 to 61c. Advicen from
the mine, while generally satisfactory, indicated
that the high assays previously reported were
obtained only from face samples. Tbe cur
assays taken while crosscutting the new vein
showed lower values than the face samples, but
the showing was good and the ore averaged $27
a ton from cars that included much waste.
On the cail sales of Sierra Nevada were heavy.
witU th* price opening at 4<">c and closing at
{43c, against a closing price of tOe Wednesday.
1 After tbe call a small decline Wai followed by
a sharp recovery, and the close was strong,
with buyers bidding freely for more shares.

! exception of Ophir. which had a small decline.
i I/niou and Consolidated Virginia were slightly
iiijtlier on the day and Mexican was steady at
$2.~~> sales and bid.
Goldfleld consolidated was the firmest feature
lof its group and holders seemed to be indifferent
[about selling. The stock was traded in to the
■ extent of 600 shares at 52.60. and the tendency
' was upward, if anything. The Merger closed
J steady at 31c, with very little stock for sale.
Moet of the Tonopahs were quiet all day. but
the market had a strong tone and the leaders
of the camp were well sustained. About 10,000

SAN FRANCISCO STOCK AND BOND EXCHANGE
Sale of a City Electric bond on the Stock and Bond exchange yesterday at
$S9 supplied food for a statement that these bonds are slightly weaker In sym
pathy with the recent downward tendency of Western Power preferred and
common and Great Western Power ss. September 4, the last previous date a
sale of these bonds took place, the transaction was made at $89.50. Yet the bid
some eight days ago was only $SS. It is possible that some weakness has
spread to these bonds, but thus far it has not shown itself very convincingly
in the price. In selling a bond of this character it is often necessary to sacri
fice a portion of a point, just as in buying one it is often necessary to give a
fraction over the nominal market figure.
Associated Oil stock again brought $44.37! £ yesterday, but the sale was
of only 10 shares.
Prices recorded for the sugar stocks are but nominal ones, and at present
interest in these securities is at low ebb. Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar
brought $41.25.
Alaska Packers' association was back to $90.25. Giant Powder stock brought
the unusual price of $105.

"Wheat—War news hfls rather worn out today
as a market lnUu»nce. It wat responsible for a
little early strength, following a weak start, but
the market ultimately became weak again There
wae not enough new and aggressive buying to
sustain the weight of considerable hedging sales

closed out. Export demand has disappeared to

exclusively during September were larser than
expected, footing up 16.948,000 bushels of wheat
and flour as wheat, against 10.700,000 a year ago
and had some little influence in strengthening
values for a brief period. Exports from rnited
States alone since July 1 were equal to 25.504.n00
bushels against 27.151.000 iast year. Tlie an
