The IndjE jI quarxr was strong with
Sugar RetIrg furrralng a icnspleuous
Tho declaration of the Amalearcttcd
Copper dividend nod the utatciiciit issued
by the company at tl e same time that
the dividend was de- red on Thurvla
are of course the r li ccts of much com
ment of a most varied character The
first supprsltlon natural Is that the
Standard Oil people arc telling the who
truth regt ding the Fuallcn iney say
thit ths foreign trade Is very bad and
tlit the coapanj has been compelled b
this and by the unwillingness of the oth
er copper comnanica to come to Its aid to
surretder Its position nnd let the price of
copper metal drop badly as It has done
during the past few days
To these that take this view the out
look for Amalgamated Copper stock seems
lad The statement Is that the conipan
has rcccrt marketed 100000000 pounds
of copper This metal was Fold with
guarantees to th I urchascrs that the
price should net be cut below IT cents
This was the fiction when the companj s
selling r guits were protesting that they
had not cut the price Sine these sales
were made the price has dropped already
i cents a pound which means that the
Vmalgamated Company will be forced by
Its contracts to return to the purchasers
at least 1000 000 In tcbatcs This of
Itself Is enough to make the position of
the company look extreme unattractive
Hut It seems qulle possible that the price
may lie cut further And furthermore
thrc Is no IinmcdHte prospect of a bet
terment in the copptr trade situation
The price at which the Amalgamated
Copper mines can produce copper at a
pront Is not known exactly outside the
companj but It Is known that it is a
much higher price than that at which
man of the other mines show a profit
It Is quite certain at ny rate that at
13 cents the profits ot company arc
not more than half what they were at
IT cents
Intrinsic vnlise of Copper securities
The argument is made li the copper
experts that a mine that can only pi
i per cent en Its slock is not doing v cry
well and that a 4 per cent copper stock
is not entitled to sell at a very high
price It Is generally estimated rnuglilv
that a copper stock should be able to pay
for Itself in dividends In ten years A 10
per cent stock should sellrcund par and
a 20 per cent stock around 2f On this
basis Amalgamated would not be worth
more than 40 cr thereabouts The life
of a copper mine Is not like that of a
rallva with a perpetual chsrter and a
constantlv growing business In time cop
per mines run out
If IartK llnvc Been Dotlor d
All of these arguments hovcicr are
tosed on the assumption thit the Stand
ard Oil people have in Iblr statement told
the whole truth and nothing but the truth
The man ho Is pcssmistlc regarding
this may have a better opinion ot Amalga
mated stock vlth entire consistency If
the Standard Oil people are engaged In
a trade war with the cbjet of freezing
cut the independent copocr producers and
the public it Is pcscitlc that the will
win in the end and tluu malgamatcd may
some day be worth rod h more that Its
present price or even more than th
rricc cf tix months ago Nothing that
has occurred ii the trade or in the move
ments of Amelgamatcd during the past
six months Is unavoldal 1 Inconsistent

CHICAGO Dec 20 There was a large
and active trade In wheat today and the
market ruled strong on covering by
shorts as well as good buying for long
account owing to light receipts at tho
orthwes and higher cables from
abroad The close was at the highest
point of the day Sc higher than last
night Liverpool reported their market
as firm d higher for the day on pre
dicted smaller shipments to that port
also a good cash demand Tnere was a
better cash demand and more enquiry for
export
Trade In corn was rather light today
but the market ruled firm In sympath
with wheat and on covering by shorts
and closed at the highest point of the
day c over Last nlcht Foreign markets
were gcncrallv firm Liverpool closed lid
higher for tho day
Oats ruled Meady all day with only a
light trade and no special feature and
closed ic higher than last night Coun
try offerings were moderate cash demand
siiarp ooora and a following disastrous Provisions opened vcrj weak on sharp
uciine in nogs but mere was good
lug bj ouuldcru all day and he market
closed higher for pork unchanged for
lard and lower for ribs There was vcry
heavy celling opcnlv by Armour Co
