XUW YOKIv Jul 21 The stock market
has been under the influence of the Chica
go bear clique largely since the boom
ended on Thursday They contlnurd to
hammer the grangers unJcr the bajtle
cry of burned up corn llelds As a picu
lathe mture In the abstract there are
many chances for profit in bulling corn
and selling the Western transportation
stocks the most prolltable results being
attained when the mtnagers of the deal
through creating a crop s care can fright
en either the grain pit bars or the stock
exchange bulls Into a panic During the
last two or three das there hub been an
effort on the part of the Western short
Interest to stampede the stock market
through the old fashioned vray of sending
a dozen brokers at one time in with sell
in orders When the market is full of
stop orders such games hae frtquently
causcd an immense slaughter of the inno
cents because stop orders must be exe
cuted Immediately on the best terms
- The trouble which the Chicago shorts
hac met is that the public has not been
buing stock i for a long time conse
quently thtre are no stop orders In the
market and a big clique of the wealth
iest capitalists eagerly absorb all such
shares as the crop scare originators are
willing to sell None of the companies
could be damaged to an extent repre
sented by the decline In their stocks If
the entire corn transportation was lost
Thus the proportion of corn carried by the
Atchison has furnished only C per cent of
Its entire freight receipts and the rates
charged hac been so low that the barely
paid the cost of the fuel and crew en
gaged In the transportation thereof In
the meantime the price of Atchison stock
has been shoed down nearly 20 per cent
It has been a comparatiey short time
since the short interests In Northern Pa
cific common stock paid erj dearly for
their attempt to depress that property
It is unlikely that any other corner will
pay such handsome profits but it is a
fact that the same coterie of capitalists
who took the bearish cash on that oc
casion hae been almost the only pur
chasers of Atchison Union Pacific and
St Paul -within the past two weeks Ev
es yesterday the market closed steady
at the figures at which the Chicago spec
ulators had forced quotations Set
tlement day will come within the next
three months and it may be difficult for
some houses to buy In their short en
Perhaps because its showing conformed
to expectations the ery strong bank
statement had very little effect en prices
jesterday For once the Increase In cash
nas closely In line with the estimates
the gain of a trifle over SOcy00 resulting
in almost equal measure from the Treas
urys disbursements and from the Inte
riors remittances How really ast was
the flood of stock market liquidation ear
lier In the week may be judged from the
movement of loans On top of last weeks
21COJG00 contraction and of the 13
OCOO0O reduction In the three preceding
weeks comes a further shrinkage of J12
000000 This movement It may be ob
served is already more extensive by six
or seven millions than the reduction which
followed the panic of May 9 It is also
greater by fully SioOWOOO than the ex
treme decrease in loans from the highest
figure during the summer of 1900 To the
money market such wholesale striking
off of bank liabilities is reassuring it has
raised the surplus reserve above 210
000 a figure which although still below
the average for this period is higher than
that of the present date in lfc99 ISM or
It was characteristic of Wall Street in
its present mood that Mr Morgans repu
diation on Friday of the rumors of com
promise in the steel strike should have
upset the market That his statement
had this effect resulted naturally from
the indulgence of the stock exchange in
the luxury of foolish dreams Any share
holder fearful of the effect of strikes on
the steel trades future fortunes would
have been wise if the comnanv s mana
gers had surrendered in selling his stock
at once Bj virtue of such surrender Mr
Shaffer would have been given control of
the Sfel Truttb labor outlay
Attention will now be converged on the
movement of corn to market cjuite as
closelv as it would have converged had
joung Mr Phillips carried his corner pnst
the IWh of May One of the odilttes of
the grain situation Is th it nine wesks ngo
a good part of the trade was assertirg
that there was not enough oil eorn in
crib to upset forestalling plans whereas
today the very same critics are confident
that enough is on hand to make good the
losses of the drought The result of the
JLeiler episode proved that contents of
private granaries will often be underes
timated But the comparative figures ure
sometimes more ust ful than the absolute
and the Governments estimates show
that with a ISO corn crop of 2lBwJi
bushels almost exactly the same amount
was left on hand March 1 1W1 as on
March 1 1600 Tor the earlier date the
estimate was 773729000 bushels for the
latter 776ICCOW It follows necessarily
granting some accuracv to tho figures
that if the crop of 1301 Is reduced from
last jear only by the moderate estimate
of 4fJorJ00 bushels either the home or
the foreign market for the grain must
proportionately suffer
Probablv it Is the export trade which
will be contracted for the American con
sumer must have his corn whatever the
price to which it rises whereas the for
eigner can at a pinch dispense with it
This decision of foreign consumers to do
without is the usual cause for the fall
from famine prices even in years of ac
tual shortage Speculators with their
eve on variations in supply alone are apt
to be ruddy reminded at such times
that change in demand cuts also some
figure In the market Europe in short
has learned to use the American cereal
In a dozen new was since the abortive
effort of -Minister Phelps twelve yars
ago to convince the German mind of the
virtues of corn bread Its regular tak
ings of the cereal have Increased four
fold It I not yet however one of their
necessities If our merchants ship from a
l730i0tM0 bushel crop only the average
percentage taken by Europe before Kt
the outgo will be some TdWOOK bushels

Of the Northern Pacific settlement the
Financial Chronicle sas Cp to this
date the principle of railroad harmony
has been an undefined and somewhat ob
scure bentlment Now the public has an
object lesson which makes It not only
a reality but gives it a wider and more
vigorous Interpretation than had even
been anticipated If the principle evoked
can be carried out in practice and how
can it fail now the investor has gained
for his use by this movement a large
class of securities free from at least one
of the most troublesome of former causes
of fluctuations In value
The fight between the Illinois Central
Railroad Company and the city officials
of New Orleans reached the breaking
point on Saturday when President Stuy
vesant Tish of the Illinois Central an
nounced that he had abandoned the pro
ject of building extensive wharves and an
elevator In that city The proposed ele
vator was to havo had a capacity of 1
000000 bushels It was stated that the
reason for this was the unsatisfactory ao
tlon of the New Orleans council on the
companys application for privileges It
will be remembered that only u few
months ago the American Sugar Itc fin
ing Company felt compelled for a similar
reason to suspend sugar refining opera
tions In New Orleans and so that city
promises to rival Chicago in the unfavora
ble attitude towaid large corporations
The confusion In the sugar trade was
accentuated on Saturday by the an
nouncement by the trust withdrawing all
ionceb dina and inviting orders on the
basis of 5 35 provided the orders were put
In at the opening This Is the ArbucKle
price and so the trust in effect Saturday
made a cut of ten points The condKIon
that orders at 5 35 were to be nut in at
the opening wa held as indicating that
the trust will return to the 545 bais to
day In the trade it is argued that the
oversold condition of the refiners and the
position of the raw sugar market warrant
neither the 5 1 nor 5 25 price but a lower
price A handsome margin for refining
would bo shown even at 5 25

Exports from tho United States to all
American countries and islanJs south of
her boundaries show a marked Increase in
the fiscal ear Just entfeel an J exceed those
of any other ear In the history of our
commerce Thl3 statement Just an
nounced by the Treasury Bureau of Sta
tistics is especial Interesting In view
of the various efforts being made for clos
er business commercial and transporta
tion relations between the United States
and her neighbors at the south New
lines of steamcVs have recently been put
on between the Pacific Coast of the Unit
ed States and the western coast of Mexi
co Central and South America a recent-
i ly published statement Indicates that
j great financial Interests of the United
I States have obtained control of the near
I ly completed transcontinental line con
necting Argentina with Chile the estab
lishment of additional direct steamship
lints between the eastern coast of the
United States and South American ports
is under discussion and the opening of
an isthmian canal would give a straight
line of water communication from the
eastern coan of the United States to the
western coist of South America
All of these movements In the direc
tion of closer relations between the Unit
ed States and her neighbors at the south
add Interest to the announcement that
our exports to those countries In 1001 are
larger than those of any preceding ear
and to some figures just presented by the
Bureau of Statistics showing the Imports
of each of the South American countries
at the latest date and the exports from
the United States to each of those coun
tries in 1901
The growth of exports from the United
States to Central and South America has
not kept pace In the past with the growth
in other directions The total exports to
South America in 1900 for instance were
no more than those of 1S90 being la each of
those cars in round numbers JOOOOOO
while the same statement holds good with
reference to Central America the total
exports from the United States to the
Central American States being in 1S90 and
1900 In each case In round numbers
50X0u0 It is to Mexico and the West
Indies that our exports In the decade
Iss90 ia00 show the greatest Increase be
ing To the West Indies in 190 330u0000
and In 1900 470O0X and to Mexico in
1S90 13000000 and in 1900 340000u0 The
fiscal years 1900 and 1901 show a much
greater Increase in our sales to our neigh
bors at the south than in any preceding
ears The total exports to Mexico
Central and South America and the
AVest Indies in 1S9D were 103000000 In
1900 127000000 and In 1901 12800000 in
round numbers Thus the figures of 1901
are 35000000 greater than those in 1S99
while the 1SS0 figures are only 1000000
greater than those of 193
The importance of satisfactory trans
portation facilities is Illustrated by a
study of the growth of our export trade
with the countries at the south Prior to
the construction of railway lines con
necting Mexico with the United States
our exports to Mexico seldom reached
100000u0 by 1S86 they were 20O000u0 by
1S99 250000i0 in 1900 34000000 and in
1901 37000000 In round numbers To the
West Indies the transportation system Is
much more satisfactory than to the South
American countries and to those islands
our exports have grown from 34000000 in
liSl to 49000000 in 1901 To Central and
South America with which steamship
communication has not been satisfactory
the growth has been less the figures as
already indicated being in 10 practically
the same as in lSSt while the figures for
1900 and 1901 show in each case a consid
erable Increase
This Increase is especially notable In
the exports to the countries on the west
ern coast of South America reached by
the recently established lines connecting
the western coast of the United States
with that of South and Central America
and which were put Into operation about
the beginning of the present calendar
ear lhe figures of our exports to South
America show an increase of nearly 100
per cent to Peru In eleven months ending
with may 1301 as compared with the
-same period of the fiscal ear 1900 and
nearly 100 per cent to Chile in the same
time Of the Increase of S00O90 in ex
ports to South America In 1901 as com
pared with 1900 more thun two thirds is
to the countries on the western coast
The following tible shows the Imports
of the South American countries at the
latest date obtainable in most tnes 1899
and the exports from the United States to
each of those countries in ll99 and 19J1

The announcement that American capi
tal has taken control of and will com
plete the unfinished section of the trans
continental railway system of South
America connecting Chile and Argentina
suggests that there may follow a prac
tical revival of Interest in the great pro
ject for a Pan American railway line
to connect the North and South American
railway systems advocated for many
eirs by Illnton Rowan Helper and lends
Interest to the figures of the report of
the Intercontinental Railway Commission
on the proposed through railway line from
New York to Buenos A res These fig
ures which were issued in 1S93 show the
entire distance b the proposed route from
New York to Buenos A res to bo 1022S
miles of which 1772 miles were then con
structed and 5456 et to be constructed
at an estlm ited cost of 175000000
