NEW lORIC Aue 13 The further Im
provement In prices in todays stock mar
ket was again plainly enough nwins to
the spread of the comlcllon th it the
strike of the Amalgamated Asoclitlon
is on the verge of colHpe The days
developments sefmed to hinge almost ex
clusively on the views in this regard and
for the time being at any rate the agri
cultural situation seems to have been
rclesttrtl to the background
London took a favorable view of the
local situation nnd sent in not only ma
terially higher prices for American stocks
but fairly liberal busing orders the total
purchases on tint account amounting to
ovtr J000 thares A large number of ud
dltlpnal returns of railwav traffic for the
first week of the month were submitted
and made uniformly gratlfvlng showings
There was otherwise an almost utter
absence of definite news bearing on par
ticular slocks in the railway list
St Paul nnd Union Pacllic returned to
the leading position they have recently
occupied and both stocks were dcciilcdlj
strong Conjecture regarding the rate of
dividend to be declared on St Paul stock
a month hence Is now becoming active
and It seems to be the common bent of
opinion that the stock Is to be established
upon a 7 rer cent annual bals Bcjond
any question the condition of the property
and its earnings and prospects would
warrant such action on the
part of the management but thus far
there have been no authoritlve intima
tions as to the course which will be pur
The street has been treated to mnnv
unofficial estimates of what the St Paul
common will show In the waj of net earn
ings for the ended fiscal jear and without
ngard to the figures current it may be
assumed with safety thtt whatever the
ofllcill statement shows will be bettered
by the returns for the current fiscal year
on account of theprescnt splendid pros
pects for a bountiful spring wheat crop
The particular strength appearing in Un
ion Paciiic and Southern Pacitlc could not
be directly accounted for by any new de-
V hile as noted the agricultural situa
tion has been temporaril dismissed from
attention there appears to be a quite
general feeling that the Governments re
port erred somewhat on the side of con
servatism and at all events It is still the
case that erfectly trustworthy reports
from the Central Western States reit
erate previous assertions that the com
munities most affected by the shortage
in the corn crop are by no means so deep
ly concerned over the matter as Wall
Street has been

eontlnued to relcct pressure but apart
from the reports regarding the health of
the president of the comp inv there was
nothing to be cited In connection with
the course of the stock
The local traction issues plajed only
a small pait In the das dealings The
specialties were generally firm
notably for General Electric and Peoples
Gas The money market continued ex
trvmtl ensv and Etirllng exchange was
firmer but there was no suggestions that
there would be any immediate engage
ments of god for export
The preliminary report of the Bureau
of Statistics of the Treasury Department
for July the first month of the current
fiscal jear showed an Increase in the ex
ports of dpmestic products over the cor
responding month of last vear of over
3rW0iX The greater part of this Increase
was In brcadstuffs but noteworthy gains
also were furnished from the shipment of
cotton and provisions

Prices again advanced jc terday the
gains being more Important than any
seen In the past week or more and con
tinuing from the opening to the close of
the session Business was dull however
nnd for the most part professional so
that no particular can be at
tached to it Considering the clnracter
of the miirket and the season it seems
probable that the advance has gone about
far enough for the present and if there
Is a high opening today e areful people
generally will be Inclined to sell out and
take their profits The market is not one
to go short of however as the tendencj
Is likely to be toward a higher level for
some time to come The bad news is out
and has been more than discounted in
the declines In prices The level at pres
ent is entirely reasonable and In many
cases low considering the outlook for
good business during the coming jear
The news of the day was unimportant
and In no way accounted for the advance
In prices The strike situation was no
lietter if so good No new cheerful intel
ligence was received from the West but
Instead the statement that there is no rain
In the corn belt London was cheerful
and a bujer of American securities but
this side pajs little attention to London
recently knowing that it is a manipula
tive market entirely as far as Ameri
cans are concerned Mone was easy
but this was no new thlrg and neither
are the fine earnings statements that con
tinue to be published
The grangers were the features of the
advance St Paul getting above 101 and
clcing at the top and Atchison getting
nearly to 75 and also closing at the top
level for the session It was said that
the Berwind pool was bujlng Atchison
and the street whether rightly or not
asserted that this meant Pennsjlvania
absorption It was noticed that Penn
sylvania stock was advanced also in much
the wine way s Atchison The conserva
tive view to take of this story is not to
believe it as both Atchison and PennsI
vanla Interests have denied it persistent
ly Atchison earnings are large how
ever and the officers of the company con
fident and the present prices of the stocks
docs not hcem unreasonable
In connection with the St Paul boom
Roswell Miller was quoted in a most
optimistic strain regarding the outlook
for the svsteni He stated that with a
tremendous wheat crop the compan will
in all probability earn much more than it
did last vear when there was only a small
wheat crop He stated further that there
will be a much lighter expenditure of
monej for betterments this vear than last
because the improvements contemplated
have been completed In large measure
The St Paul method has been to make
betterment expenditures under the name
of operating expenses so that the cut in
these outlavt will make an Immediate
showing in very much Increased net earn
ings This is a most bullish argument on
the stock It is not probable that there
will be an immediate Increase In the divi
dend on the stock as the last increase
was made onlv a few months ago but It
Is fairly safe to predict that it will be on
a 7 per cert basis Inside of a jear
Two other systems that will reap the
benefit from a very big wheat crop will
be Northern Pacific and Great Northern
It is said by friends of the companies that
they expect to Increase thlr gross earn
ings flOOCOOO this jear and that the net
increase will likely te at least half of
this figuring on the basis of recent re
The Steel securities were very strong all
day but did not advance as much as the
grangers This is in line with the policy
of the pool that is In control of the mir
ket operations of the securities of the big
trust There are careful market people
that would not be surprised to sec the
stocks advance steadily though slowly
during the entire progress of the strike
Sugar was the weak feature of the mar
ket It was tumbled to 123 and got up to
only a little better than 150 during the
afternoon advance In the general market
Thr story was told that the companv was
attempting to piddle out the 15000000 of
new stock that has been authorized This
plan of selling new stock In the market
has been carried out successfully before
as for Instance In the case of the Penn
sylvania Issue of a jear or more ago
when the company realized several mil
lions of dollars by getting rid of its stock
well above par There are reasons for be
lieving that this will not be attempted in
the present Instance however for one
thing the plan viould not be likelv to suc
ceed so well as it did with the Pennsjl
vania stock which was at that time pir
ticularly well liked by the public An Is
sue to stockholders at par is more likely
What the reason of the present decline
Is the street docs not know
The earnings of the Southern nailway
for the first week of August showed an
Increase of 20072 The Increase from
1 has been 1GjCi0 The showing Is a
particularly good one The outlook for
the Southern Hallway securities and for
Louisville and NiBhvillc Is attractive at
this time with the cotton crop making
such a good showing and the business
situation in general so prosperous So
also Norfolk anil Western and Chesa
peake and Ohio look well
The experts say that the price of an
thracite coal during the coming jear will
be at a record level At the same time
the production will be especially
the present estimate being for more than
M000000 tons Conservative people con
sider the outlook for the anthracite coal
ers especiallj good for this reason The
low priced securities In particular look to
be excellent purchases The Ontario and
Western does not belong to the h ird coal
combine but It is in entire harmony with
It and will reap all the advantages of
the present good conditions In the trade
Ontario and Western stock Is well liked
The argument is made that the poor
corn crop Is hkelj to be a good thing for
the stockholders of the Southern Pacific
This does not mean of course that it
will add to the earnings of the company

Tor rile by EDWARD STT ENS Ninth Street and Pennarlrtnla Ainut
but that the Union Pacific people will
have smaller earnings and will need the
dividend on Southern Pacific more for
this reason The policy of the Union Pa
cific seems to have been to put evcrj pos
sible cent into the Southern Pacific property-
in the shape of betterments It is
a good pollej In the long run no matter
how unpleasant It maj be to the
stockholders that have held the stock
n long time without realizing any income
from It If now however the earnings
of the Union Pacific are to be cut much
by the short corn crop it will be seen
that the pijment of Interest on the
new convertible bonds will be the
more a big problem with the manage
ment The temptation to declare a divi
dend undoubtedly earned on Southern
Pacllic stock will be strong

anil Corn
CHICAGO Aug 13 Wheat was rather
dull lower and Irregular Local traders
were more bearlshly inclined owing to the
easier tone of foreign markets Liverpool
and Paris were d loner The announce
ment of another large amount cleared
1540000 bushels at the seaboard gave
them alarm and they covered the closing
being a trifle under yesterday Primary
receipts were considerably less than last
5 ear The seaboard reported only four
loads of wheat
Corn was nervous nnd lower There
was scattered long selling Some of the
cash houses also sold The support was
confined to local bulls The commission
house interest was somewhat smaller A
strong factor and one which will help
prices materially if it continues Is tho
resumption of the Eastern cash demand
100ttX bushels being sold here today to
go to New England points Over half the
visible supply is held in Chicago There
Is no change in the crop advices The
weather is more favorable in the Western
States for late corn but Indiana Ohio
and Illinois are badly in need of rain
Oats were firm There was some real
ing by local bulls and short selling
by the bears These offerings were well
taken by commission houses A promi
nent receiving house was conspicuous as
a buyer The cash demand for oats Is
Provisions were active and higher for
ribs and pork on buvlng of nearby de
liveries bj packers and on a good invest
ment demand for January Lard was
about steady Theclose was firm There
was a better cash trade in both meats
and lard with very favorable prospects
for further Improvement
