Speculation AliuoNt tit a MiiiiilKtlll
NLTW YOKK Aug 10 Speculation In
stocks was ilrtually at a standstill this
morninjr jendinK the publication or the
Gen eminent crop report and because ot
prospects of Important le eopments In
the steel strike oer Sunday Higher
prices for American securities in Londo l
haflwery little effect on the local mar
ket presumably because they were not
supplemented vUth orders
In the last hour of business the market
was depressed by seillnff that was chleHy
for Chicago account and vhlch was based
upon expectations that the Government
crop report would show a condition ot
corn not much better than CO per cent and
poIuly lower In addition the Chicago
contingent has found a new specific basis
for crmtlhUIng its bear campaign in an at
tapk by the local authorities on the Peo
ples Gas Company The local profession
al element followed the lead of commis
sion houses that handled the bulk of the
Chicago business and there was also some
liquidation of speculative accounts by
dealers who did not wish to carry stocks
oxer Sunday because of possible unfavor
able developments In the labor situation
The majority of the developments In
that situation this week or certainly the
more important ones have been adverse
to the strikers A crisis In the strike will
be reached tonight or tomorrow when
members of the Amalgamated Association
In Chicago Milwaukee and other impor
tant points determine whether or not they
will obey the strike extension order Is
sued by President Shaffer in the early
part of this week Should they decide to
eiuit work in all of the plants included In
that order or even In a majority of them
thct strike bids fair to be a protracted
one and one that will entail great Iost es
and sufferings upon those who participate
in it
The weekly statement of averages of
the associated banks was somewhat of a
disappointment to the street The gain
In lawful money shown was less than
half of the most conservative figure
reached In jesterdays preliminary com
pilation of the knrwn movements of
money The increase of nearly S90u0099
in the loans was also a surprise to the
street The two changes noted Increased
the deposits to an extent that requires
all of the increased cash and as much
more from the previous surplus to pro
vide the requisite reserve In conse
quence there Is shown a decrease of
5121000 I surplus which though not
large was sufficient to Induce traders to
sell stocks The banks still have a sur
plus of nearly a000i which is ample
for all Immeillate purposes
The chances are that money will con
tinue to drift to this centre from com
paratively nearby points and there will
be further receipts of gold from Alaska
for some weeks to come The most that
can be counted on from the Tre asur De
partment is that its disbursement will
about keep pace with its collectors
Trade reports bank clearings and rail
way tralllc returns are of the most en
couraging character
Regarding the last named it is to be
notcel that the figures of gros receipts
for are phenomenally large being
113 per ctrt greater than for the same
month of last vear The improvement
was distributed throughout the country
Bank clearings for the week exce el those
of tluuuxv ious six business 6ms bj s
per cent and as compared with the cor
responding week of last ear the increase
Is Ci per cent
Coincident with these movements it is
to be noted that the rise in commodlty
prlccs whlh began in June after a re
action of fifteen months was continued in
Julv Prices for finished products of iron
and steel have advance partly becaue
of the strike and nlo In response to an
unusual active demand for them Con
trary to general cipctntlons the most
chtrful trade advices arc received from
distributing centres which would natur
ally be adversely affecteel by the damage
to the corn crop notably from Kansas
City St Ioulh and Omaha
A somewhat lower level of prices for
securities particularly for stocks not
withstanding the favorable conditions
that haxe been noted Is not surprising
In Iew of the almost general suspension
of speculative activity that usually oc
curs at this season of the year and the
feeling of caution cajsed by the labor
troubles in the Iron industry
There certainly has been no important
liquidation in the stock market since the
middle of last month and it was so
thorough at about the present level of
prices that there is not likely to be a re
currence of It unless some unforeseen
disaster of great Importance should oc
cur At the same time a fairlv large
short Interest has been created and any
decided favorable event would unques
tionably produce a two Elded market of
considerable magnitude

The movements of the stock market dur
ing the past week have been much less
Important than the news that has caused
them The txpectation ot the Govern
ment crop report the most Important ot
the ear If not of the last decade has
hung over the market heavily The dec
laration of the general strike first and
later the expectation of its being carrieel
Into effect have been a curb to all opera
tions unless for lower prices Despite
these matters or extreme moment the
market has been dull During the first
four davs of the week prie 1 1 idiancl
During last two days there was a
recession In vhlch the tarlv gains were
lost In most casts Neither movement
was Important or large Both were the
result of professional operations almost
entlrelv And the conclusion to be drawn
from this K that the public Is not In the
market that it has sold out that the In
siders and Important people generally
hold stocks that there Is little floating
stock and that the big Interests do not
wish either a boom or a slump at this
time If the public had been in the ic
cent market there woukl have been a
great dumping out of stocks during the
past two weeks If the Insiders had wish
eel a lower range of prices the y would
not have supported the market every
time it had a decline or a point or so
If on the other hand there had been any
desire for a boom the very creditable ad
vance made by the professionals in the
early part of the week would not have
been checked Uy the Insiders
The outlook is not a bad one It seems
possible If not probable now tint there
will be a decline at the opening tomorrow
morning This will be well nigh assured
If the strike order of President Shaffer Is
obejeel very generally The Government
crop report Is not a good one though it
might well be worse Hie bank statement
jesterday was a poor showing on the
surface at least These matters mav very
well cause a further slump at the opening
of business but after that there Is a
very good chance or a reaction and a
movement toward better prices The
worst or the news will be out Alreadv
the effect or the strike and the short corn
crop have been very fully discounted
This being the situation It is not to be
supposed that the Insiders will sell stocks
and they are the only people that have
any to sell
The crop report shows the condition of
com on August 1 as 1 rully as bad a
percentage as had been cxpecteel and a
little worse than some people had looked
for There was a decline In condition
during July of 27 points and on August 1
It was 33 5 points lower than at the same
date last year 25 9 points below the aver
age on August 1 1433 and G points be
low the mean averages of the past ten
cars It Is of course impossible to
make accurate figures as to the probable
crop from this condition but an estimate
may be made of between 1300600000 and
1400000000 bushels
Since August 1 there hive been much
needed rains which have helped the out
look wonderfully and It seems probable
that the vield finally may be nearer
1GO0O00OO0 bushels The spring wh at
condition figure is all that was expected
80 3 This is 239 points higher than th
figure at the same date last jear and
only 12 points lower than the mean of
August averages for the past ten jears
It will be seen that with an average
wheat yield and a very largo winter
wheat crop the total crop will be well ln
excess of the average The outlook for
the Western farmers and for the railways
Is not a gloomy one The farmers will
have enough corn for feeding purposes
In the sections where the earlv corn was
badly damaged they are planting turnips
and other crops for fodder The wheat
yield will be bountiful and It will not
have to be fed to cattle and hogs but will
be sold at high prices Corn prices too
will be high The returns on this years
crops will be goed and with the money
remaining from the bountiful crops of
the past two or three jcara the farmers
wllll have quite as much as usual to
spend The railways will do a big and

prosperous business As a number of
their officers have already predicted they
will probably keep up to the phenomenal
rcconl or last ear surprising as that
may seem after the pessimistic utter
ances of the past month CeSrn crops do
not run the Government or even the rail
ways The failure of a portion of one
corn crop does -not spell ruin The Bpring
wheat crop was very poorjast jear and
yet the St Paul made the record earn
ings of Its history and the Northern Pa
cific did the same t
The bank statement jesterday was a
disappointment on the surface at least
It will be seen that the Increase of loans
was large again and that this increase
with the small Increase In cash made
deposits larger by 3000000 which neces
sitated an Increase In the reserve of
2230000 The Increase in cash was not
sufficient and there was consequently a
decrerse In surplus reserve of more than
SlOOOCeiO The Increase In cash was less
by at least 700000 than was expected The
figures were as follows
Reserves decreased 1212400
Loans Increased 791S70O
Specie increased 2549800
Legal tenders decreased 1333000
Deposits lncreaseel 94CSS0O
Circulation decreased 19C0O
A careful nnalvsis of the showing does
not cause arxlctv The increase in loans
Is probably due to considerable buvlng
operations by large Interests lately and
these purchases Indicate confidence In
the stability of the market There was
an increase In cash and would have been
an Increase In reserves except for the big
gain in loans above referred to The re
serve fund is still more than 20 000000 in
txcess of legal requirements The out
look is good for a continuance of easy
money

One of the few piccts or news during
the week aside from the steel strike situ
ation anel the corn crop despatches was
that re girding the proceeeilngs against
the Peoples Gas Comany of Chicago
A petition ln epjo warranto proceeding
attacking the constitutionality ot tho
e barter ot the company was entercel on
Eriday he grounds or the proceedings

companies or Chicago Is not expresses
In tho title or the act cf 1M17 as requlreel

go said that the proeee elings were for
Illtlcal cflect entirely tint they werei
entered Into at the Instigation of a scn
sitiontl new sjiaper unci tntt thy were
for the purpose ot manipulating the stock
market The despatches geiierallv ex
pressed the opinion that the compiny will
win th suit and that the stock is cheap
ui its present price The earnings of the
loneern during the last fiscal vear were
the largest ln its history a long way
something like 10 per cent having been
earneel on the stock
It would seem that there Is a gooel
ehancc for activity in the Gould securi
ties during the coming week and con
servative eple are advising the pur
chase of these stocks and especially of
Missouri Pacific anil Texas and Pacific
on the reactions Both of these securities
nave been strong all the past week on
what has seemed to be good inside buy
ing Stories of the probability that tho
Gould reorganization plan will be taken
up ln the near future larc heard
St Lawrence and Adirondack has con
tinued active during the entire week anel
has made a good advance ln price The
new activity ln this stock has caused
much surprise the story most generally
told being that the New York Central
has acqulreel or is acquiring a closer con
trol of the company which will res ult In
a better return for stockholders
The Curb Market
NEW TOKIC Aug 10 Trading ln the
market for outside securities was ex
tremely quiet today the total transac
tions aggregating less than 1500 shares
The tone of the market held firm how
ever but price changes were confined to
the fractions
Notwithstanding the report that the
sheriff has taken charge of the property
of the General Carriage Company uneler
an attachment of 11000 the stock ruled
firm In the curb market today About
300 shares changed hands at 1H It was
said that the action of the sheriff was
fully expected and therefore it had been
discounted
Trading In Bay State Gas amounted to
over EOO shares all of which changed
hands at J The strength was attributed
to the fact that 4 prominent stock ex
change house has received the endorse
ments of holders representing over 60
000 shares of the stock and that the af
fairs of the company are now being fully
investigated to ascertain the present
status of the company
