AMERICAN XXTTOWI. LETTER
The monthly letter of the American
National bank has the following inter
estlng comment on the trade of the
United States in the orient:
"Allowing for the seasonal quiet in
retail linp.s. the year has started off
fairly well, commercially speaking. San
Francisco' ■ :iriners for January
5241.000,000, an increase of nearly
9 per cent over January, 1912. Total
exports of merchandise from San Fran
- reign countries In January
amounted in value to $n.375.249, while
f-xports to Hawaii, Alaska and Guam
I $1,390,401 more. Silver ship
ments to China. India and Hongkong
amounted to $1,427,000 during the
month. The total export. , ' exceeded the
monthly average for 1912. Imports
•'oreisrn countries during January
• seated $4,057,2X2.
"Those who decry American posses
sion of the Philippines and advocate
the independence of the Islands would
do well to consider the increase of our
trade in that quarter since the Araer
i< an occupation. In 1912, exports from
the United States to th* Philippines
reached a total value of $25,000,000,
while our imports from the Islands
amounted to $22,000,000. Both imports
and exports have more than doubled
Murine: the four years. More than
40 per cent of the foreign trade of the
Philippine islands is with the United
States. As a customer for American
goods the Philippines are rapidly ap
proaching the importance of Japan.
Naturally, rtan Francisco and the other
porta of the Pacific derive a consioV-r
--able part of the benefit of this trade."

Steady Decline Halted by
Improvement in Conditions
NEW YORK, Feb. 26.—The steady decline in stocks was halted today
and the market made material progress upward. It was one of the
periodic upturns which have occurred during the downward movement or
the last few weeks, marking , a natural reaction, and-was symptomatic or
no essential change in speculative conditions. Trading grew quiet on the
hitrher-level. ..
Europe lent a hand In pulling up the market. Indications that the
Harrfman dissolution plan would not be upset by the objections of the
California railroad commission also exercised a strengthening influence.
Ono of the most encouraging features of the market from the stand
point of the bull trader was the cessation of liquidation in specialties and
Inactive railroad stocks, such as has had an unsettling effect recently.
Many of these stocks made large gains today. Can common and preferred
moved up rapidly on the belief that the directors at tomorrow's meeting
might take action toward paying oif the accumulated dividend on the pre
ferred. Central Leather's favorable annual report was reflected in the
streerth of the shares. The Hill stocks were under pressure for a time.
Northern Pacific touching a new low price for the movement, but later
rallying. '
Additional railroad statements for January were received and the rec
ord of increased earnings among the larger lines is unbroken. Union Pa
cific reported $460,000 gain in net and Southern Railway $118,000.
Bonds showed an improving tendency. Total sales, par value,
$2,500,000.
United States government b.onds unchanged on call.
NEW YORK. Feb. 26.— E. F. Hutton & Co.'s wire says: "Although the
market was very quiet at the opening, stocks showed fractional gains
over Tuesday's close. A bear drive was made shortly after the opening,
but had little effect, as stocks soon gave signs of an Improving tendency.
The copper stocks were strpng features. It is said accumulation of those
issues has been going on for some time past despite the weakness of the
metal market. The strength in Southern Pacific was attributed by traders
to the possibility that on account of the decision of the California rail
road commission the $126,000,000 Southern Pacific stock held by the Union
Pacific may not have to be put on the market. The street also appreciates
Southern Pacific's ability to earn its dividend without revenue from Cen
tral Pacific. The rise in Can folowing the return from Baltimore of
directors after testifying in the government inquiry into the company's
affairs was regarded as an Indication that those Interests were satisfied
with the company's position and that the Inquiry would have a beneficial
effect rather than otherwise. Strength In Reading was thought to be due
in part to the excellent sho.ving made in the. Lackawanna report, which
caused a betted feeling toward the anthracite issues. For the first time
since the recent decline started, specialist? reported a large increase in the
volume of trade in odd shares, a substantial part of Which was believed to
represent investment buying. The market retained its advance through
out the session and closed at about the high prices of the day. Strength
of the market was apparently due to covering of short contracts."

THE COPPER SITUATION
The copper trade is looking for a
contraction in refinery production this
month and holds to the belief that the
February statement will be much more
favorable than that of January. Last
month's statement, which showed are.
finery production of close to 144,000,000
pounds, was disappointing and did
more than anything else to further de
press prices of the metal and influence
selling of the shares of the various
copper companies. It was expected
that January production would be
around 125,'Ju0,000 pounds, as the con
sensus of opinion was that the reduc
tion in the output of the Nevada and
("tan Copper company's, Incident to the
labor strike, would be reflected in the
associations figures. Evidently this
w.ts not the case and this reduction
may be reflected in the February state
ment, *

UNITED STATES STEEL

$12,145,814, the highest record ever
reached for a similar month. Esti
mates as to earnings for the first quar

\\ Urnon'M Vfcwe on the Markets
(From J. C. Wils.jn & Co.'s Prirate W're.)
NKW YORK, Feb. 26. —The strength in the
stock market today was largely duo to covering
of short contracts. There j*-as not much new
bay lag. l"'t the apparent scarcity of stock around
recent low Uvels created a little better feeling
townril securities, and those hearisbly inclined
were less aggressive. If liquidation breaks ost
anew in the unseasoned Industries it will have a
depressing effect on standard shares, but this
should be considered an opportunity to add to
holdings of the t>. tter class of stocks.
Cotton—Fluctuation* wer* within narrow limits
end there was no general prpssure to m>ll. Liver
pool and some lauding spot interests were buying.
Support was given from time to time by brokers
MippMPd to represent leading trade Interests.
Southern dispatohon insisted that spot markets,
though quiet, so far as American trade was con
cernf'l, tot, us ■ rule. firm, with a fair demand
from the continent. Tt ie a trading market for
the time being. On good bulges we should pre
fer tO soil.
BOSTON, Feb. en.—The coppers were fairly
strong, wiili utocks rather scarce. Calumet and
Arizona was well bonght all day. The rally
should go some further, and We would take ad
vantage of any upward movement to sell a few
stocks, as we do not believe the time Iβ right
yet for a perrnaii<uit upward swing.
CHICAGO. Feb. i>6.—Wheat —While we con
elder the wheat news bullish, at the same time
we will admit th«t probably the action of the
market would not have bi-eii so favorable but for
the very great strength in corn. However, wheat
Is destined fi-r higher ptfeee. in our opinion, and
the corn action only hastened the rise.

Mining Stocks
» _____ +
The stocks of the southern Nevada mining
camps had a generally Una tone In the Bu?n
street exchange yesterday, while the north end
Comstocks started the day dull, and most cf them
subsequently declined under a wave of bearish
sentiment" that extended to all issues "f the
group. There were evidence , * that the boom "'
Midway of the Tonopah district was rabsldin..
and tliat stock was edged out ef first placr in
In the matter of sales by Monarch Plttsburg
Intension, oae of the lesser Issues of the same
camp. The attitude of traders toward the Gold
fields was decidedly bullish, sentiment being in
fluenced by encouraging reports from the csmp
and rumors of important developments at coming
annual meetings.
The opening session of tbe exchange was
largely a Tonopah sfTatr. flv<» of the nine stocks
dealt in at that time twin* issues of the l>lg
gold-pi'ver camp. Midway opened 6 points below
Tuesday's close, with liberal sales at o.'Se, and
it closed at the same figure In the afternoon
after selling up to ooc in the interim. Monarch
Pittsburg Extension, which took first plsce frovn
Midway as an active stock, had a sharp rise
to 19c on heavy buying, with most of the busi
ness handled after the regular call. Rescue made
a small gain, while most of the others were
rtrm, with bide at Tuesday's closing levels ua
heed«vl in several instances.
Florence was easily the leader of the Gold
fields in point of firmness, while Vernal, a stock
c»f which little has been heard for a long time,
came to the front with a noteworthy advance.
The latter issue was in g"o«l d'jniaDd and ad
vanced to 18c. the rise being due to tbe receipt
of advices confirming reports of an important
discovery In the mine. Florence had a nine j
point adVance to 52c and reacted to fiOc, against
a closing price of 43c on the preceding day. The
annual meeting of the stock holders of this com
pany is scheduled to be held in Goldfleld Satur
day, and reports that definite action regarding
tho development of the mine was practically
•assured gave friends of th<» stock a chance to
boost it here and In the east. Goldfleld consoli
dated made a firm showing and sold up to $2.2."
on the belief that 8 dividend would be declared
at the coming annual meeting of. the company,
which will be held In this city early in March.
VVitb the exception of Mexican, all of the
north end Cornstocks were lower, the heaviest
decline being In Sierra Nevada. The latter broke
to 12e in the late trading, against a high price
of 19c ou Tuesday. A trifling rise in Mexican
was given unusual significance because It
occurred iv the face of intimations that recent
operations at the mine indicated that tb«- eon
pany was paving the way for tbe ultimate absn
dnnment of mining at depth. These intimations j
were accompanied by a recurrence oC the rumors j
to the effect that the company was eontein- j
plating the acquisition of properties outside of !
the Comstock lod<*. which, if true, would require j
a heavy outlay of treasury funds.
