RARTH TBUU) OP TRAVELS
Jacob Barth of J. Barth & t\> wm m
sck in his office yesterday after an
i (tended tour of Europe.
'There is considerable apprehension
In Europe." he said, "that the Balkan
war will spread to take in some of tlie
great powers, and the recent selling of
American securities came in conse
quence of this fear. My personal opin
ion is that tlie war probably will be
confined to the countries now engaged
"Money in New York is firm now
particularly as a result of payments
made for the securities unloaded by
Europe on the New York market and
T expect that, rates will hold up
throughout the winter. I certainly do
not believe, however, that there wil>
be a pinch at any time, and by next
shimmer money perhaps will be a drug
on the market. Six months' loans can
be had in New York at from ji. to
'\ per <ent, and three months' loans
at about 6 per cent. The rate will
hold up particularly through January
then, with money coming in constantly
In increasing amounts, it will decline.
"The patioa's crops are 0 f the
bumper variety, and you can not hold
back the results of such harvests. Our
foreign trade is showing tremendous
t-ains. and the llalance of trade is very
strongly in our favor." '
"In Prague, In Vienna —everywhere
T went —I was asked about San Fran
and the Panama-Pacific interna
tional exposition, and you would be
surprised if I told you how many
people informed me they were coming
here in _9is,
'Locally I believe we will have an
excellent bond market from March on
through August. At present money
tinds it can get best returns from loans.
Tt i.s getting 6 per cent on gilt edge
securities, which, after all, yield only
from 44 to 5 per cent. But with
— *
money plentiful and rates going tlo*Br_
the lorn! market will g«e ■ groat re
vival."
Newman Erb la quoted In a special
dispatch to a Salt Lake newspaper, as
statins that the Moffatt road, now
built westward front Denver, will be
continued to Salt Lake. Jt was under
stood that it would be built only to
Kotsero. a station on the Denver and
Rio Grande.

THE SAX FRANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1912.
Stocks Quietly Strong After
Early Period of Hesitation
NEW YORK. Oct. 28.—Stocks were quietly strong today, after an
early period of hesitation, due to such restraining influences as last Sat
urday's bank statement, the foreign situation and fears of some unfavor
able decisions by the supreme court. When it became definitely known
that the court would take no action on the important, cases before it the
market more than made up for its initial heaviness, but trading remained
light and professional to the end.
Reading was again the most active issue, -with some inquiry for Hill
and Harrlman shares, the grangers and a few less prominent stocks. Tlie
tobacco group was conspicuous for its wide fluctuations, and some other
shares manifested strength. United States Steel and coppers were little
more than steady. Tn fact, the metal stocks were under moderate pressure,
being held back by trade advices which suggested price concessions.
Earnings of the steel corporation for the third quarter of the year are to
be published after the close of tomorrow's market. Estimates range from
$27,000,000 to 330,000,000, but this flattering prospect seems to have been
discounted.
The most interesting feature of the Eondon market, where anxiety
was plainly discernible, was the higher carry over charges for Americans,
ranging from 5% to 6*4 per cent.
Call money rose to 6 per cent, an outcome of the depleted ban*
reserves. Time money stiffened to 6 per cent, tho highest figures of the
year, for 60 and 90 days, with little inquiry for other periods. The bond
market fluctuated narrowly on very light operations.
Total sales, par value, $1,690,000.
United States registered 3s advanced % per cent on call.
NEW YORK, Oct. 28.—X. F. Hutton & Co.'s wire says: "Strength
developed in tlie market today under leadership of Reading-. The rise
was based on expectation of the rendering of a decision in the anthracite
trust cases, which traders expected would be followed by a substantial
distribution to the Reading stock .holders.
"Pittsburg did not concur In the optimistic expectations regarding the
steel earnings. In the Iron trade It was not expected that the net would
be above $33,000,000. Pittsburg estimates, however, are sometimes wide
of the mark. , , . ~ ,
"There was a little foreign selling of Baltimore and Ohio, which came
on direct orders from the continent, and therefore escaped the observation
of arbitrage houses. .
"There was a good demand for Reading and I nion Pacific in the loan
crowd but the latter stock made but little response to tlia movement In
the former. It see.ms not unlikely that a short Interest which has been
accumula-ing recently will be driven to cover before the market seeks a
lower range in prices.''

MINING STOCKS
Mining stocks had a tame opening in Bush
street yesterday, and an inside tip to the effect
that an assessment of 10c a share would be
levied on Sierra Nevada at the annual meeting
to be held in the afternoon bad a depressing
effect 011 the stock of that company, and the
weakness was shared by the other north end
Cornstocks. Sierra Nevada sold off sharply to
42c on the call, the decline being helped along
by a lack of news from the mine at that time.
An encouraging wire that was received from
the superintendent of the mine after the call
caused the stock to rebound to 45c, which was
surprising In view of tbe expected assessment.
The stock subsequently declined, but the price
did not go below the morning's opening price,
which way paid for some large blocks of shares.
The superintendent wired as follows: "Two car
samples from south face of new vein on 2500
level went $95ftf ; 100. North face, cuts broken
partially; assays 2 feet, $36: 1 foot. $18."
Consolidated Virginia, 00 which an assessment
of 15c was levied last Friday, was a weak
feature of the Oomstoeks. the price being ham
mered from 35c to 29c at the afternoon session
of the board. Union had a small decline and
Ophir wu weak, though the price was practically
unchanged. Mexican was quoted at $2.55 bid,
but there was no stock for sale at that figure.
North Star was the most active and firmest
stock of tlie Tonopah group, advancing to 40c in
the afternoon on a heavy buying movement. It
was reported In Bush street that there were
several large buying orders for this stock In the
market. Dealings In the other Tonopahs were
.mall at all times. The Merger closed steady

CHICAGO, Oct. SS. —Peace overture* said to

CHICAGO, Oct. 28.— E. F. Hutton _Co s
wire says:
"Wheat—Very dull and uninteresting trade.
Prices opened lower on quite an array of bearish
news current, but the market has moved wit
little since. World's shipments were very large.
Russian shipments were larger, and Liverpool
cables said Russia was offering freely at lower
prices. Primary receipts were also very laree
Moat of the F>uronean prices were lower and the
feeling abroad indicated a better political out
look. Cash wheat demand here on milling ac
count was good. Cash sale* were 125.000 bnab
els. Argentina sent in some very favorable crop
advices. A cargo of Dnblth wheat arrived today,
but it has not yet been unloaded.
"Corn was easy early, because of the wheat
weakness, tbe tine weather and large world's
shipments, but firmed up later «n the absence of
noteworthy selling pressure. There was consld
erable new corn In today's run—about 15 cars.
Very poor eastern call for the old. Cash, aales
were 125,000 bushels.
"OBts—Very slow trade In oats In all depart
ments. Export demand was lacking and specu
lations very small. Prices have covered an ex
tremely narrow range. Sales were 195,000
bushels.
"Provisions—Further liquidation and extreme
weakness In provisions today. In addition there
has been some aggressive short selling at the
lower levels. Heavy receipts of hogs west have
given the trade some surprise. Packers have Ist
terly shown a disposition to atart the new season
with the cheaper hogs."
