P.Y RIIOADAN" WALU
NEW YORK. May 16. From 10 to
11 Friday stocks were active and
strong. The market grew dull and
trading dwindled into the old rut of
Idleness. Prices held well, however,
and the close was firm.
Half the day's business was trans
acted in the first hour. No incentive
for further activity could be found in
the news or the gossip, but the genera'
temper among the brokers favored a
reaction of a point or more. Traders i
sold a few stocks. These were ab
sorbed and this movement stopped.
Commission business is at a stand
still and brokers chafe, grumble and ,
fume over a condition that is entirely)
outside their control. There was a '
slight attendance of customers during i
the early hours. but the dullness
drove them away before luncheon and
they failed to return.
Easy money and favorable crops
have not proved an incentive and it is
by no means sure that an increase in ,
eastern freight rates would induce
activity. The Mexican question prom- i
ises to hang on the ragged edge for
months to come and those who pin !
faith on the declaration of war as an !
impetus to stock market activity are i
losing faith in their opinion. j
The prompt sale of $:53,00O,000 Ral
timore and Ohio 4)1-2 per cent 1-year
notes disposed of in less than an hour, !
reflects a decided improvement in the j
investment demand. The market fori
notes has shown distinct firmness dur- I
ing the week and high grade bonds!
are in excellent demand. I
Steel common was one of the I
strongest stocks, while the gain for j Rupture Now Supported and Actually Cured
the day was fractional, it was evident , ..V. . , . F L. . .
that the only way to get stock was to
bid up the price. An aVivance to
about C3 is expected on this move.
Utah Copper sold up to 38 1-4.
Tennessee Copper touched 33 3-4.
Amalgamated Copper dropped nearly
a point on the publication of the an
nual report showing earnings of 3 3-4
per cent against 6 per cent paid in
Mexican Petroleum advanced to 63.
Central Reather sold at 36. The di
rectors will probably meet towards
the end of the month and the dividend
question will come up for duscussion
if market conditions are right. In
creasing the dividend rate in dull
markets is as fruitless as firing ball
cartridges as salutes.
Rails were steady and quiet. Union
Pacific was firm, while Southern Pa
cific was again under selling pressure.
Canadian Pacific meets stock on firm
spots. Missouri Pacific moved Indif
ferently. Most of the trunk lfnes
showed strength and neglect.
Foreign exchange ruled strong with
the record high prices for the last
five years. Call money renewed at
1 3-4 per cent with abundant supplies
in sight. Preliminary estimates in to
morrows's bank statement indicate a
currency gain of about $9,000,000.
Prices grew dull Friday without
losing the advance, a fair indication
that a continuation of the upward
movement may occur before any re
action worth mentioning takes place.

CHICAGO, May 1G. There were

in south central Illinois and central
Missouri have caused the wheat crop
in those districts to go backward;
that in some sections the loss is ma

fields are spotted and in Missouri slm

218 SO. MICHIGAN ST.
TO THE ST. JOSEPH COUNTY DEMOCRACY:
Being without opposition in the candidacy for the nomina
tion for state senator, which friends generously tendered me by
tiling a petition a week ago with the election commissioners,
and without any statement from me as to what my position
might be on public matters, I have come to regard it as a duty
to assume some attitude, even in advance of the uncontested
primary; first, by thanking the party for the confidence shown
in me by no other candidate corning out, and second, by out
lining in brief, a few things that I shall stand for.
It seems to me that economy is one thing that the demo
cratic party should stand for this year, and that the party
should mean it, not only in the affairs of the state, but in the
affairs of the county and the townships. Economy and a sane,
progressive democracy regarding the rights of the people po
litically and industrially, is the platform upon which I shall hope
to win in November.
This question of economy I regard as paramount in this
age. We need it, not only in the alTairs of government, but in
business affairs, and in the affairs of the individual and the
home, and it seems to me that the government especially
should set an example. The unprecedented development and
increase of wealth within the state has during the past twenty
years resulted in a carelessness in the appropriation and ex
penditure of state funds a condition or tendency that needs
immediate correction. We are too much given to careless ex
travagance in this, as many of us are in our private, affairs.
Remedy of this evil, public ind private, and many of the hard
ships of which societv complains will vanish.
I realize that the're are other remedies being proposed,
many of them good ones, but it seems to me that they all tend
to accomplish this end thrift and competence, unhindered by
special privileges lavished elsewhere, and unbolstered by spec
ial privilege grants. That is what I mean by a "sane progres
Members of the State Assembly, in either house, are there
as representatives of the people; not special interests, nor peo
ple of any particular vocation or calling; the whole people, the
greatest ultimate ood for the greatest number, being the stan
dard. I shall recognize this and seek not to allow temporal'
palliatives to take precedence over reforms that might as well
be made permanent.
I also realize that I shall, if elected, be nnly one of fifty
men in the senate, and that state legislation i not a one-man
job, but my constituency may rest assured that I shall never
lend my support nor my name to any legislation that bespeaks
extravagance on the part of the state, or that to my mind, will
tend to encourage it anywhere else. I say thi not only to the
democratic party, but to all voter of "St. Joseph county
progressive, republican or socialist.
A competence is humanity's sorei need. State economy
will be a valiant contribution to its aid. The burdens of tax
ation will accordingly be among my chief ainu to help lift.
Society needs it. The man who toils needs it. The home
builder ought not to be continuously and increasingly taxed
each year for being a home-builder, and the thrifty man of
business should not be discouraged bv such meihod either.
I cannot expect to Jo everything it' elected to the Mate
senate, but there are some thine: 1 will net c'o. I will not
countenance foolish and unnecessary appropriations. I -hall
ask for no better political epitaph after I have served my term,
should I get one, than that I was the "watch-do;:' of the state
treasury, which it shall be my aim to he.
Yours for a successful Jemocnicv,
