(me (,( tho most Important dutl of tin- county Ixiarel of supervisors at its annual n etlng on lit. 11. will bo the designation of a depository or depositotleH for county funds. This must bo done this fall, according to Act !9 of tho public acts of 1909 an the n-w provision Is well thought by taxpayers, not only hcoauso of th safeguards to tho county funs that it offers, but hccatiso tho county can realize on Its deposits, something that it has not been aide to d. herctofon Act. Xo. f9 authorizes tho ominty hoard of "supervisors to establish nn official depository for county funds, the county clerk first asklntr every bank tn the county for bids, the ones offering tho highest rate of Interest, helnc nl lowed the keeplnij of tho county mon evs. Tho county treasurer and th banks in which tho county funds nr kept then have a settlement Dec. 31 and Juno 30, all Interest occurlnpr to bo deposited, to the credit of tho coun ty- The Houghton county treasurer of ten has more than a million dollars which he handles In tho course of a vear and the interest on this laro sum would mean considerable to the coun ty. Bank Must Give Bond. The act further provides that the bank which becomes the official lo- nositorv must execute and deliver to the board of supervisors a pood and Hiifllcli nt bond In an amount at least eual to the maximum to be deposit ed In such bank, with sureties ap proved by the board and tho prosecut ing attorney of the county. It is also provided that when any larger sum of money Is deposited in the official depository by the county treasurer than the amount of bonds civen, then the bank must take out new bonds to equal the additional amount on deposit, or tho surplus be placed in some other bank that will Kive sufficient surety. County Draws Interest. There are a number of Rood fe.i tares about the new act. In the first place the county pets a little return In tho way of Interest. Furthermore the county treasurer Is relieved of consid erable responsibility. In case a bank which has been chosen as tho official depository suspends payment, the county is not a 'osor, for the reason that e very cent of the county's money en deposit Is amply protected by. sure ties. It is not thouKht that the batiks in th." county will make any preat rush for the county funds, but that they will be divided up, possibly one bank at the county seat belnp designated as a depository and another In this city. The board of county supervisors has the authority to designate as many de positories as it deems safe and con- -nlert. Peculiar Customs in Vogue. Some peculiar customs have been in vopuo in tho past relative to tho keeping of the county funds, not only in tl Is county but in others, and the new act was undoubtedly passed to do away with unsafe methods. Heretofore it has been optional with county treausuers where they should plae,. their county's money. They could keep it In the proverbial "sock" if they cared to, and many times the bonds were not sufficient to cover the amount they had In their keeplnp.

THE STOCK MARKET The so-called eighth wonder, Steel Common, has ro completely overshadowed the entire stock market by it unprecedented advance, that as a rule movementa In othe r'. issue's have not been noticed. Steel yesterday advanced to J'J- u rise of almost ten points In u week's time. Of course the move Is largedy manipulative but because of tho large amount of stock outstanding It is readily apparent that behind this manipulation there is a misein for the advance. This can bo as cribed only to the general betterment of business coi- dltions. Copper Is the laggard. It has not shown the revival of Interest apparent In most other lines. Steel and Iron trades re-port an Influx of business which can bj handled only with difficulty. Not only are condition bright In these lines at tho moment, but prospects for the future are equally favorable. . There is every factor conducive to an active stoc't market. The public has money which It wants to In vest. Husinoss conditions are favorable and the tech nical position of the market Is Just right. All that re mains is to get stocks down a little to permit the pub lic to get in, not at top prices. Of course the metal market does not afford great en couragement for an active copper share market. An effeirt is being made to get be tter control of the copper situation both nt homo und abroad. The success rf such a plan would mean decidedly higher prices for copper stocks. For the present we believe that activity will be con fined to specialties. Efforts have been made to boom the so-called Calumet & Hecla Issues, but this is dis couraged by the officers or the big company. Among the dividend payers Osceola, Calumet & Arizona, Utah Copper and Mohawk. Among the lower priced stocks, Butte Coalition, Cumberland, Ely, Alex Scott. Hancock nnd Live Oak look attractive and will advance easl'y In the event of n higher copper market. THE METAL MARKET Sales of copper were made in considerable quantity yesterday ut 13 cents per peiund. Transactions far have not been In any heavy lots, yet the buying has been much better than a week ago. Cables from abroad indicate a like condition of affairs there. Octo ber should prove a good month as far as the sale of copper Is concerned. As near as can now be ascertained the September figures of the Copper Producers' association, which are to be made , public next week, will show a further in crease in the surplus steck of $10,000,000 to 13,000,000 pounds. This Is due largely to the lighter demanl from abroad. The home consumDtlon remains about the same an the month before. Ily the time the fig ures are published the stock market will have ells counted them to a large degree. On all frldos reports of the likelihood of Increased de mand for the red metal are heard. As an example tin re-cent act of the. Chicago council serves well. Tho city of Chicago has ordained that all railroads must electrify their lines within a radius of eight miles -if the city." hall, and this to be done by 1912. To accom plish this plans must bo Immediately prepared by tho various lines, and the coppe r which will be used In thl work will amount to an enormous sum. It is qul'o likely that there will be a fight made ngainst It by the railroads, but it indicates the trend of affairs. In New York City several railroads have already prepared plans for the electrification of their lines. In the far west a similar course Is to be followed. European copper statistics on Oct. 1 showed the vis ible supply of the metal to be 03,850 tons, an Inereaso for tho month of 5.626 tons. Tho visible supply la eejual to only a little more than one month's produc tion of the world's copper mines. GREENE CANANEA So much question of late has arisen because of the continued weakness of Greene-Cananea that many shareholders nro becoming discouraged. As a matter of fact the physical condition of the property Is ex cellent. There Is absolutely nothing: ubout the mine which would contribute in the least to the condition of the Block mai ketw Ise. j , Another source must be Investigated In order to ad vance any theories on the subje-ct. Naturally the first which Is suggested Is the Inquiry set afoot by the mi nority Greene Consolidated shareholders something over a year ugo. While the committee In charge of this In vestigation has maele no final repert It is known that they have not abandoned their original plans. While) no report has been made of any nature It Is believed that tho committee is quietly pursuing Its Investiga tions, and when tho proper tlmo arrives will tuke such steps ns are deemed udvlsable. The minority Grine shareholders advance as their grievance the fact that no patlsfactory explanation has beeu given them of the disposition of the large surplus In the Greene treasury. The sale of 200,000 shares of Cananea Central stock at $20 per share placed $4,000, 000 In the company's treasury. In addition to this th Sierra Madre Land company deal has not been consid ered a satisfactory one. Greene shareholders belleva that their company now ought to. have a considerable balance in cash, sufficient to declare a dividend of it least $4 per share. These stockholders believe that tho rehabilitation of the company's smelting plant and oth er costs attendant to resuming operations should not have be-en so heavy as to have euten Into the proceeds of the Cananea Central stock. There was a report circulated a few days ago that a settleMTient might bo effected on a basis of exchange of Greune stock, ono share for one and one-half shares of Greene Cananea, and In addition a ensh dividend of $4 per share. This lacks confirmation from any sourco considered In the least uuthorltative. If Ulich an ex ehange were effected It would have to be brought about as n deal between Individuals rather than between the company nnd Its shareholders. For the present It looks very much like a waiting game with efforts made to tire out Greene CemsoIldaS ed shareholders. The majority are determined, thoug to see the matter through to the end, which alone adds weight to the report that a compromise might be brought about. At tho present time Greene-Cananea is working .1 force of approximately 2,500 men. When Col. Green.) was at tne he-ad of the company there were about 4, 000 men on the payroll, so that the snvlng- nlreody Drought Is about 'Is obvious. The company Is supply ing ore to six out of its battery of eight furnaces. Nji are those six taxed to capacity. Were It deemed ad visable Greene-Cananea could now bo producing at the rate of almost 70,000,000 pounds of the red metal instead of Its present rate of around 4(,000,000 pound. The cost of producing copper is given at approxi mately 10 cents per pound, according to a statement recently made by a director of the company. On basis of 13 cents per pound for copper Greene Cananea now would show earnings of 50 cents per share. From a private source we learn that the company has extended Its ore reserves beyond the point ever before attained. This has been done without goln to any considerable depth. In fact, below 1,000 feet tho company's vast holdings are yet unexplored. Tho Capeite mine Is its deepest workings, and In tho low est level It has opened up good commercial ore. We can see but little ahead for Greene Cananea shareholders for the Immediate future, and It may de velop that the stock will sag off further. For the per son who has patience the stetck Is ono which can jo held until present difficulties will have been adjusted. It Is rather difficult to advise as to the course to fol low with tho shares. It might bo well to dispose of the stock with the view of getting Into something or greater activity, but with the Idea of later repurchasing Greene-Cananea stock, which roust ultimately sell much higher.
