Til i:\SIRV ORDER MODIFIED
As a result of the protests that arose
in various parts of the country because
of the issuance of an order by Frank
lyn MacVeagh, secretary of the treas
ury, changing the method of handling
government funds in the depositary
banks, various modifications have been
made, according to a letter received by
the Mercantile National bank of this
city from Secretary MacVeagh.
Explanation is made that an active
depositary bank will pay all govern
ment checks and warrants in the same
manner that it pays a check drawn
on ajiother bank.
Shrould the treasury department re
ject a check or warrant the depositary
bank would have recourse on the in
dorsers. For further protection of the
depositaries they are to be given fac
simile signatures of clerks .authorized
to sign pension checks, and all dis
bursing officers have been requested to
furnish their signatures to depositaries.

MUNICIPAL BABY BONDS
The movement for issuance of cor
poration bonds in the denomination of
$100 has grown considerably, but as
yet in only a few instances have mu
nicipal bonds been issued in denomina
tions of less than $500, New York city
beinj? a notable exception, having for
years issued bonds in any denomina
tion from $10 upward.
When a citizen of a municipality can
more readily invest In the bonds issued
by his home town or city, the sales
of this class of security directly to the
public will be greatly increased; and
when bonds are thus sold by munici
pal officials directly to their "own citi
zens, the expense of the middleman is
eliminated, and a higher yield to the
investor is thereby possible.
The number of people is legion who
have a few hundred to a few thousand
dollars in the savings bank netting
them a comparatively small interest
returns and they might with equal
safety be earning more on an invest
ment in the securities of their own
city. It has the effect too of promot
ing a healthy civic pride and deeper
interest among such citizen investors
In 1910 the city of Philadelphia rtjp
cessfully demonstrated the possibility
of this method of selling its securities
■when $5,000,000 of improvement 4s
were sold in two weeks.
The popularity of $100 municipals
can be easily demonstrated and thousrh
this is a." yet a comparatively new form
of civic investment it seems destined to
Increase.

Railroad Stocks Tumble
Espee Breaks Below Par
XEW YORK. Feb. 21. —There were a few weak spots in the stock
market, but the general movement was narrow and trading dull. Specu
lative sentiment remained bearish, but the bears were more wary, and,
finding that the market offered effective resistance, made little effort.
There was no Inducement for.operating on the long side, and the result
was tha*t trading fell to nominal proportions at times and price movements
were hardly worth recording.
Southern Pacific broke below par for the first time since 1908. Large
amounts of the stock changed hawds around par, but eventually the price
yielded and sold as low as 99. Publication of the annual report, showing
smaller turnings, furnished reason for selling.
Liquidation of inactive stocks continued, although the effect upon the
general list was negligible. Weakness of low priced railroad stocks was ,
a feature of the dealings , . Erie sold at 28 U. the bottom price since 1911.
Southern. Wabash, Wheeling and Lake Erie, and Lake Erie & Western
also were heavy. The petroleum stocks declined abruptly.
The week's liquidation of stocks was reflected in the way of a loan
contraction in the bank statement which appeared today. Loans were
scaled down over $29,000,000, and, although there was an actual cash loss
of $4,300,000, the surplus reserve was increased by $4,226,000.
The downward tendency in» the bond market continued. Total sales
(par value) amounted to $2.00.",000.
United States 2s declined \k and 4s coupon *i on call.
NEW YORK. Feb. 21. — 3. C. Wilson & Co.'s wire says.
"Dullness was the great feature of the stock market today. South
ern Pacific developed weakness on the rather unfavorable annual state
ment. At least It is considered so because earnings fell a little short of
8 per cent, but considerable short selling is going on in this stock on the
theory that the stock holders will not take more than 50 per cent of the
Union Pacific holdings and that the syndicate will have a large amount
left on their hands to sell. We should think the stock very cheap under
par. The bank statement was much better then expected and should bring
about easier money next week."

the dispute between the eastern American rail

"The heavy railroad purehanes of equipment
continue to constitute the chief feature of the
iron and uteel industry. The retail demand for
the leading textile displays activity, and both
the manufacturers and the distributers report
a Reasonable business, but the clothing strike
and the tariff uncertainty make for consider
able conservatism."
Bradstreet's tomorrow will say:
"Onder the stimulus of an early Easter, mild
weather and widespread evidence of active crop
preparations, jobbing: trade and spring distribu
tion generally continued to expand. Building
tends to become more active; railroad opera
tions, relieved of the fear of a firemen's strike,
and unhampered by severe weather, are active,
and industry, except where affected by strikes,
Is of a full volume. The trade situation gen
erally is one of assured confidence. Foreign
trade for month and .year exceeds all like
periods.
"The other side of tbe picture, however. Is
shown when prospects for the more distant fu
ture are considered. Except in some sections
there Iβ evidence of conservatism, demand afckea
haste slowly and there seems to be a deelre to
«tcp discreetly, pending clearer views of poli
tico-economic questions, of money supply and of
possible crop promise.
"As for some time past, the feeling in specu
lative ahd finamMnl lines is one of repression
if not of depression.

Condition of tbe Treasury
WASHINGTON. Feb. 21.—The condition of the
United States treasury at the beginninsr of busi
ness today was: Working balance, $76,435,326;
in banks and Philippine treasury, $44,498,517.
Total of general fund, $140,753,065; receipts yes
terday, $2,491,187; disbursements. $3,252,321;
the surplus this fiscal year Is $7,440,005, nn
against a deficit of $25,247,737 last year. Tho
figures for receipts, disbursement, etc., exclude
Panama canal and public debt transactions.
Mining Stocks
TUc wires on the other side of the mountains
were working: badly when the regular call ses
sion of the Bush street exchange was held yes
terday morninp and as a reeoft there werv no
Dew baying orders for the Tnnnpah stock* re
ceived from Nevada or from (lie eastern curbs at
that time. The session whs consequently a du!l
affair, the trading twins purely local In char
acter, beside* being of small volume. The wire
service Improved later, however, aad brisk buy-
Ing by Tonopah Investors and short covering for
the account of New York people strengthened
a few favorites of the Tonopah camp.
Midway continued to lead the trading at all
three sessions of the exchange and rose to 56c,
the advance being unchecked all day. The stock
started the day with a rebound to 52c and
touched the now high level at. the afternoon
informal session. Belmont opened unsteady, with
sales at $7, and after it had fluctuated above
that figure for a brief period it fell back again
and closed dull. Midway rose to oCc. Jim Butler
to 74e and it;p Merger to 80c. Tonopah of
Nevada sold at $6.10 and West End at $1.37 V>-
The lower priced issues of the group received
but little attention from board room traders.
There were no sales of Goldfleld consolidated
recorded, but the Ktook was firmly held here
and in the east. The firmness was brought about
by the encouraging reports being sent out from
the mine. These reports indicate that there is
a probability of the net realization for this
monlh exceeding that of January. Tlie opera
tion* last niontu netted the company a substan
tial sum in excess of the realization for the
month of December. Jumbo Extension was a firm
featurp of the GoldQeld group, with an early
advance to 35c easily maintained in the late
dealings. Atlanta and Merger Mines had small
trades at about previous prices.
The north end Comstocks opened easy, with
prk-es inclined to sag. but they developed a
little better ton* late in the day. Ophir, Con
solidated Virginia and Sierra Nevada made small
gains in the final hour of trading.
An assessment of 5c * share on the stock of
the Utah Mining company of the Comstoek group
was delinquent jn the board room yesterday.
Certificate of increase of capital stock from
$22,000,000 to $23,116,000 was filed yesterday
with the county clerk by the Homestake Mining
company. The increase Iβ pursuant to a meeting
of the corporation directors held February 20.
Tho directors are Biehard A. Clark, president;
Fred Clark, secretary; F. G. Drum and Ihoiuas

CHICAGO, Feb. 21.—Adequate snnw .mvl rein
in Tlie dry sections west anil •OOthw#et toAM)
more than" offset the effect of e\|i<.rt derna>i<l for
wheat. The market closed steady but V*"'*' ,
net lower.
Corn finished V>9%C "P- "ats with a gala of ..
shade to He and prorleoes varrying from
nighUs level to iv,i,no- decline.
Althouirh it developed that e\porters both Ih-h
--and at Omaha were ntUl active, the upturn thai
resulted proved brief. In addition heavier re
ceipts were in sight at Pnluth. and there win
pood authority for a larger eettaftte of the sur
plus in Argentina.
Primary receipts of wheat for one day were
794,000 bushels, against 879.000 bushels two rla.vs
a year a pro. Cl p nr;inees of wheat iind flour
equaled 55.000 bushels.
Corn prices hardened because the weatbr-r '1'
tared sale l ;. Big purchases made here ).y
Baltimore exporters cut a figure, too. in helping
prices.
Oats —Though dull, reflected the rom strength.
Renewed curtailment of the ho;r supply jit U-h-I
--ing centers brought about a bulge in provision-.
Demand, however, fell off, aDd the market closed
CHICAGO, Feb. 21.— J. C. Wilson A- Co
wire says:
"Wheat —The markets were inclined to 'Ira;;
at the opening on the favorable weather in the
winter wheat crop belt, but Chicago sold 5.000
bushel* of hard wheat for export. Later tin
spring wheat markets weakened quite pefeep
tibly on reported Increased receipts with poor
demand. The primary movement premises to
run smaller. We still expect better price* for
wheat later on. Cash wheat sales were 110.w>
bushels.
"C-orn—Jho market improved some on the wet
weather flmv general over the belt, which will
delay farmers' sales. Poor wire service pre
vented new business today, but there were Mote
very large sales of corn after the close yester
day to Baltimore exporters. These sales totaled
more than 000,000 bushel?.
"Oats have been extremely dull. Tradr- lia*
been of little, importance. Cash sales were 1.",-0
-00 bushels.
"Provisions were higher, but t"ade was light
and scattered. Values were up tiecnuse r,T ,-<>n
siderable falling off In receipts of hogs at the
yards and the advance of r>o to 10c there. The
bog run west today was 55,W0, asrainst T§.882
