the dividend on the common stock. It will be remembered that last August the company omitted the

The flurry on Monday was incidental to the

On the day after the election, when
suspense was ended, there was an abundance of money
offered from all quarters, some, indeed, coming from
near-by cities, which resulted in the restoration of
normal conditions, and then some loans were made at
1 per cent.
As quite large amounts of money were
loaned on Monday at high rates, the average for the
week was about 9 per cent. The range for money on
call on Monday was from 25 per cent to 6 per cent,
with the bulk of the business at 20 per [cent. Loans

and business offices, or in the comments of the

that the contest is over, and that it has ended as it

This sentiment,

confined to the more conservative Eastern States.
West and South, as well as East and North, the
moral drawn is that defeat has rid a great political organization of an incubus which
could be
off by an overwhelmingly adverse majority
best cast
at the polls.
There has, to our mind, been very lit
tie this year of the feeling that the community was
suffering a grievous wrong which could be righted by
the election of an agitator. Appeals to such sentiment have not been lacking, but they have had a
forced and hollow sound. There were also, to our
knowledge, many voters who gave their support to
Mr. Bryan either from party loyalty or because they
objected to some of the Administration's policies, but
who would have shrunk with dismay from such a vote
had they not felt instinctively that their candidate's
failure was assured.
Nowhere, we are persuaded,
would greater consternation have been shown than in
this group of voters if the unexpected had come to
pass.
There is no lamenting from this source over
the outcome of the vote; like the great majority of

The candidate

His renomination, on whatever platform, meant that
the convention which endorsed his candidacy would
not accept the verdict of 1896 as final. The struggle
against the " silver plank " at Kansas City was futile,
and was known to be futile, so long as the candidate of 1896 hung like a mill-stone on the party's
neck. It is easy now to see how preposterous was the
expectation that when the silver issue, backed by all
the forces of discontent produced by an epoch of hard
times] had been as decisively rejected as it was four
years ago, it could triumph after all the predictions
of continued disaster had been conspicuously disproved.
Nevertheless, the theory was at least admitted and

No

doubt this was for the best.
The cheap-money issue of a generation ago was tacitly
compromised in the platforms of all parties. Its discussion was virtually smothered by the party leaders.
No one could learn how the voters really felt on the
new phases of the question; and the result was that the
agitation merely smouldered, to burst into flame again
under other circumstances and under another name.
No such result, we think, is in the least probable after
the vote of last Tuesday.
The agitators iE quired of
the people in November 1896 whether they were
disposed to embark in such a venture, and received a
pretty plain reply.
It did not satisfy them; in November 1900 they put the question again, and the
response was such as to invite no further inquiry.

do not pose as a political prophet ; therefore it
is no part of our purpose to define how the party

the United States of to-day, as it used to be said that
the old Federalist party died in the election of 1804

THE CHRONICLE

The company was incorporated
under the laws of Pennsylvania on Sept. 27, 1894, but up to
the first of February, 1900, the total of the stock was only
|500,000.
Now the amount is one million dollars. Moreover,
$200 has been paid in on each share of stock, so that the company now not only has $1,000,000 capital but also a surplus
of the same amount. On the old stock of $500,000 dividends
were paid up to Feb. 1, 1900, at which time the company was
practically reorganized. As at present constituted no dividends have yet been paid. The officers of the institution are

occur.

WALL STREET, FRIDAY, NOV. 9. 1900.-5 P. M.
The Money Market and Financial situation. The sub-

—

endorsement of the present Administration's finanwhich was recorded at the polls on Tuesday is
regarded with decided favor in Wall Street, as elsewhere,
and caused an almost unprecedented demand for securities
during the subsequent days of the week. Sentiment was
also affected by another important fact, which the election
demonstrated—?, e., that the industrial and commercial
conditions of the country, which have largely developed
during the past four years, are much more satisfactory than
the late opposition would have had us believe. That this
policy and ihese conditions are so generally approved and
are to continue ensures, it is believed, another period of industrial progress and development, the results of which no
one would presume to foretell
As has been pointed out, the present prices of securities
make impossible any such increase in values as followed the
election four years ag:o, but the prospects are good for divi
dend and interest payments which will be satisfactory.
The money market is easier and rates have declined. As
a result of this and of liberal sales of securities in this marstantial

cial policy

Railroad and Miscellaneous Stocks.— The effect of the
election on the stock market, as in other departments, was
not materially different from what had been expected, and
to a considerable extent discounted. Notwithstanding this
lact the advance in paces, which was general, including all
classes of stocks, and was more extensive than on other
less .momentous occasions.
The volume of business on
Wednesday was sufficient to severely test the facilities of
the Exchange, and it is claimed that the record of over
1,400,00<> shares includes only about two-thirds of the actual
transactions. To day's market was but little less active
than that of Wedn sday, and the buoyancy continued.

Belief that the industrial interests of the country will
continue to prosper, as noted above, stimulated a demand
for stocks likely to be benefited thereby, notably the iron

Street Railway Net Earnings.—The following table gives
the returns of Street railway gross and net earnings received
this week. In reporting these net earnings for the street
railways, we adopt the same plan as that for the steam
roads that is, we print each week all the returns received
that week, but once a month (on the third or the fourth
Saturday), we bring together all the roads furnishing returns, and the latest statement of this kind will be found
in the Chronicle of October 20, 1900. The next will appear
in the issue of November 17, 1900.

Detroit & Mackinac Railway.
(Report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1900.
President and General Manager J. D. Hawks says in substance

:

General Besults.—The year has been one of increased receipts in
every branch of our business. Expenses are also largely increased,
owing to the advance in materials and wages and to betterments, details of which are given below. Thenumberof passengers carried increased 48 per cent over the previous year, with an increase in passenger revenue of $60,106, largely owing to the success of the eicursion business to Tawas Beach. Linwood Park also did a good summer
business.
The freight earnings, which were $1 47 per train mile the previous
year, were $1 97 this year, showing a gratifying inorease, owing largely
to new equipment and the cutting-down of grades. The gross earnings
per train mile of all trains also increased from $1 l5to$l 57. The
average number of freight, cars in train was for previous year 23 and
for this year 34, of which 12 were loaded in previous year and 18
loaded cars this year. The average tons of freight in train last year
was 131, this year 189. [The average rate per ton per mile was 1-163
cents in 189900, contrasting with 1*137 cents in 1898-^9; do per
passenger per mile, 2-525 cents, against 2-706 cents. Of the 839,755
tons oarried in 1899-00 forest products furnished 81 08 per cent and
coal 6 88 per cent.— Ed ]
New Equipment.— Duringthe year there were added to our equipment
2 sixty ton locomotives, 4 passenger oars, 150 gondola cars £0,000 lbs.
capecity, 2 caboose cars and 2 road train cars, all equipped with airbrakes and amomatio couplers Part of this equipment was mentioned in the last report as delivered after June 30, 1899, The equipment being still insufficient, there was ordered during the fiscal year
ending June 30, 190o, 150 gondola cars 80,000 lbs. cupaoltv and 2
sixty ton locomotives, which have been delivered since June 30, 1900.
This new equipment has all been paid fur, as will appear in the Dext
annual statement. Motive power and rolling-stock have been kept in
good condition. One hundred and seventy-n'n- freight cars have been
equipped with automatic couplers dining the year.
Improvements.— The 3,0< tons of 70-lb.rali mentioned in last report
was laid during the year in the main line. Owing to the faot that considerable of this rail was used for switches and yard work, there still
remains 4 miles of 56-lb. steel in main track between Bay City and
Alpena, which will be replaced with heavier rail during the coming
year. The rail taken out of main traok has been used for the construction of lodging branches, as usual; 8 1? n lies of road were built
west from Plaok River, west of Onaway, for the immediate purpose of
taking out logs and lumber. Part of this line will be available for
our
extension to Cheboygan and Mackinaw, and in oase we build across

the country to Petoskey the entire length will be available for such an
extension. This branch has therefore been charged to betterments.
Work on cutting-down grades between Alpena and La Rocque has
been continued during the year, and with the work of similar nature
done laet year on this part of the road, which was originally a logging
road, has enabled us to add 1 freight cars to the number of oars hauled
In freight trains. This part of the road is now in condition to warrant
the layingof heavier rail without danger of Injuring the rail, and 7u-lb.
rail will gradually be substituted for the light rail, to a considerable
extent during the coming year; 26-20 100 miles of new fences were
built.
113,299 ties were used iu renewals and the construction of
.
branches.
...
A wooden bridge over the An Gres River was replaced with a steel
span 30 ft. 6 in. in length. Light steel spans over the Au Sable and
Devil rivers were replaced with heavier spans. Tnere are now no
wooden bridges on the main line and no wooden trestles of considerable length or height. The increased weight of oars and engines has
added somewhat to keeping up the road-bed and track, but they have
been maintained up to the usual standard.

Merganthaler Linotype Company.
('Report for year ended Oct. 1, 1900. J
President and General Manager P. T. Dodge says:
The year has been in every way a successful one. The net earnings
exceeded those of the preceding year by nearly $300,000; the output
of machines from the factory was Increased, and the rental revenue
from machines was slightly greater than in 1899. No debts or obligations were incurred exoept those incidental to the current business.
There are no infringing machines In the u.arket, and no litigation In
progress affectlDg the scope or validity of your patents. No new competing machine has appeared within the year. The careful consider
atlon during the year of all experimental and other machines in
America and Europe failed to disclose anything which, in my opluion,
can ever become a serious competitor of the Linotype.

The improvement of the machine and its adaptation for all
classes of "work were continued, and it will soon dominate the tinebook
and miscellaneous printing as it does the printing of news. Among
the many notable users are Theodore L. DeVinne & Co., Harper &
Brothers, D. Appleton & Co., J. B. Lippincott Co.. Bnrr Printing
House, the Methodist Book Concern and the Weed-Parsons Printing
(Jo.
Thousands of books have been printed from Linotype faces, and
a large number of the leading periodicals are printed in like manner;
among them Harper's Magazine, Harper's Weekly, Lippincott's Magazine, Munsey's, North American Review.
A machine designed for
a larger variety of work than the one now built, and adapted particularly for certain expensive olasses of composition not attempted by
any other machine, has been perfected and will be put on the market
In due time.
A noteworthy and important fact is the increasing demand for the
machine in small country and city offices. Recent replies from nearly
500 small offices having only one, two or three machines each, show
them to be highly successful and profitable in the absence of skilled
attendants or mechanics. No user indicated dissatisfaction. At the
Paris International Exposition, still in progress, the American Linotype machines received the highest award possible, the grand prize.
1,250 American offices are using the Linotyre. Of these, 397 have
one machine each. 305 two machines each and 170 three machines
each. Scores of offices contain trom 10 to 15 and 20 machines and a
number SO machines eaoh. Two large dailies employ 25 each, another
36, another 50 and two 67 machines each. The outlook is promising.

Shawniut Oil Company.
(Report for the year ending Sept. 30, 1900.
President John B. Thomas says in substance:
The present management dates from Maroh 1, 1900, but the properties acquired having been previously managed by the purchasing syndicate, a full accounting is given for the entire period from the time
of purchase, about Oot. 1, 1899. After taking possession of the properties purchased, a considerable expenditure was neoeaswy thoroughly to equip them for economio and satisfactory handling. This
has been done as rapidly as possible and paid for from the earnings
of the properties. New boilers, engines and other equipment have
been Installed where i eeded, water and gas lines laid through the different distrlots and covered .in trenohes secure from frost, changes
made in the grouping of wells and in the management of various sections. Your properties are now thoroughly equipped and so grouped
as to enable a material reduction of the working foroe and a consequent decrease iu the net cost of production.
During the year ending Sept. 30, 1900, your company has drilled 37
new wells, of which number 2 were gas wells and 8 were dry holes.
The policy of the management has been to continue drilling a sufficient number of wells to keep up the production, and In this they
have been successful, the dally average being approximately the
same as when the company was organized. The majority of the wells
being old production, It Is probable they will hold up olosely to their
present gauge through the oomlng winter; It can then be determined
as to the expediency of a more aggressive polloy involving the opening up of your undeveloped territory.

The double-track line running from

The construction of our lines was delayed by litigation brought by
the Atlanta Railway & Power Co. to prevent a condemnation of its
lines. We have won every case in court and completed the arbitration, have taken possession of the tracks, and are now operating our
oars over the tracks of the Atlanta Railway <fe Power Co. at these disputed points. Our victory has been complete and the prospects of the

An examination of the assets and liabilities, together with a careful
Inquiry into .the value of the property, aided by appraisals by experts,
shows an impairment of capital amounting approximately to $1,250,000. This impairment is not of recent creation. It is d"e for the
most part to the great expense of the change in system from horse to
electric motor power, a ohanue made when the necessary cost w-s
very much greater than it has since been, and to the purchase of the
Naumkeag Street Railway at a price far In excess of the value of the
properly purchased
The result of the thorough Inspection is in many respects very gratifying. While ihe equipment still Includes a large number of old horse
cars transformed iuto electric oars, antiquated car barns and undesirable power stations, it is clear that the management during the last
two years »t least has been a progressive one and that a wise policy

The company proposes to buy
the bulk of the domestic rice under contracts with the
growt-rs to sell their crops for a stipu ated .figure for a
period of four years, with the privilege of extending the contract an additional four years. The guaranteed prices are
somewhat in excess of present market prices, ranging from
$3 25 to $3 45 on No. 1 Honduras and $3 to $3 25 on No. 1
Japan and $1 to $1 60 on red rice.
Anderson T. Herd, attorney and director, is quoted as saying that fully 75 per cent of the rice crop is noiv under the
company's control, with prospects of further accessions.
Under the plan the Louisiana mil's are not to buy any rice,

office will be at Crowley, La.
We are mformed that no

prospectus issued in
April last says in part:
General.— Casein must be considered a new raw material, capable
of a wide range o application. Only a few uses have been developed
to this date, but the business in those few has reached a considerable
magnitude. It has been found an excellent substitute for glue, sizing,
shellac, linseed oil, egg and blood albumen, rubber and gmta purcha.
The most valuable oharacteristio of the material is the possibility of
making it become insoluble after it has been dissolved, applied and
dried out. It is this characteristic that has given to it its extensive
use in paper making, paper enameling, calico printing, oilcloth mak
ing and in the manufacture of waterproof veneers; also as a water-

Waterproof Paint Business— This is the oldest line of business,
started in a small way about twelve years ago. We n«w have an output of from ?Oo,000 lbs. to 700,0<
'hs. per month.
These paints are
made from asbestos foi abase and the prepared caseins for the binding agents— i he latter taking the place of linseed oil, which is used in
oil paints.
It is supplied to the market in dry-powder form, and Is
mane ready for use by simply mixing with cold water. These patents
have never been infringed.
Albomenoid-Sizinq Business.—This was started about six years
ago, and is all protected by patents. The increase in the product has
been at the rate of from 200 percent to 300 per cent per year. The
insoluble porous coatings have been adopted by several large playingoard companies; by Harper's. Centnry, Scribner's, and practioally all
of the larger ungazines; by all of the oigarette-box makers, and by

that amount of work in baking. Up to the present time we have

that, we have been producing for the pasttwoor three momhs at the
rate of about 1,200 pounds per day, the equivalent of 86,400 eggs per

Divio ends.—President Charles E. Gross, replying to our letter of inquiry, sajs:
During a long series of years a fund was accumulated out of sur
plus earnings for the purpose of constructing a stone dam, and as
that dam was substantially completed about eighteen months ago.it
was deemed advisable to divide the surplus fund, amounting to something like $.c 00,000, among the stockholders. This was done by way
of special dividends, attention being called to the fact that it was a
division of surplus and was eeparate from the ordinary dividend out
of current earnings. We have paid three dividends of 10 per cent each,
amounting to $360,000, out of the surplus which was held for the purpose of bui ding the dam, but which was not required therefor. Notwithstanding all the care that we took in the m*tter, it has been reported by brokers that the oompany was paying 20 per cent dividends,
and on the strength of such reports the stock has been advanced. Our
regular dividend rate is 10 per cent, and I see no prospect of any increase in that rate for at least several years to come, if ever. There
will undoubtedly be one or more special dividends out of surplus, but
the amount thereof I oannot now state, for we me now constructing a

ROADBED AND TRACK.
The condition of the roadbed and track of Union Pacific
Railroad was generally well maintained during the jear.
The wet spring affected the unballasted portions of the road,
especially in Western Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming; but
the entire line was fully up to the usual standard of ex-

The work on these new sections is progressing rapidly. It
already so far advanced between Cooper's Lake and Lookout, between Rawlins and Tipton, and between Green River
and Bryan, that these sections should be completed ready
for use not later than October 15. 1900.
The grading and
bridging between Leroy and Bear River are practically
completed, but owing to difficulties (water and soft ma
is

terials) encountered in the construction of the tunnel, 5,900
feet in length, the line probably cannot be completed before
next spring. On June 30, 1900, the east and west headings

had been driven 521 feet and 514 feet respectively, and the
east and west shaft headings had been driven 107 feet and
104 feet, respectively, making a total heading of 1,246 feet
completed to that date. The work is well organized and
equipped, and is being pushed vigorously to completion. On
the section between Buford and Laramie, across the Sherman divide, the work is already well under way and is

making rapid progress.

widened and the gradients thereof carefully rectified preparatory to ballasting.
In addition to the above, 33 miles of narrow embankment

Divisions.
During the same period 183*20 miles of track were ballasted

the year.
There are now 704-22 miles of main track ballasted, of

These changes of line will take the place, and cause the
abandonment, of about 198 miles (38 per cent) of the old
main line between Cheyenne and Ogden, exclusive of that
portion of the old line between Allen Junction and Carbon
(7-4 miles) which is retained in use as a branch line to the
Carbon coal fields.
No changes have been made during the year on the lines
of the Oregon Short Line Railroad Company.
The St.
Anthony Railroad, owned entirely by the former Company,
has been completed from Idaho Falls (on the main line) to
St. Anthony, Idaho, a distance of 37-3 miles, through the
rich and prosperous Snake River Valley, and will be
operated as a part of the Montana Division from July 1st of
the current year.
The Oregon Railroad & Navigation Company has completed its Snake River Valley Cut-Off, from Wallula to
Grange City, shortening its present road, Wallula to Grange
City, via Walla Walla, 16-54 miles, with a maximum grade
of 26 feet per mile as against 150 feet per mile, with a maximum curvature of 6 degrees as compared with 10 degrees on
the old line. This reduction in distance, curvature and
grade enables it to materially reduce its time to the
Palouse Territory," and enables it to handle its equipment
more promptly and increase its train haul over a continuous
low-grade line of 26 feet to the mile, from Riparia to Port-

The roadway and track of the Oregon Railroad & Navigation Company have been well maintained by additions and
improvements made during the year. Main-line track aggregating 38*06 miles was ballasted with gravel, making
268-68 miles so ballasted.
There are 8*30 miles ballasted
with crushed rock, so that there are in all 276-98 miles, or

one particular industry, but have been enjoyed in agriculture, stock-raising, mining and all tbe other industrial pursuits of a thriving and rapidly developing country remarkably rich in all the natural elements of wealth.
The improvements now completed and others still in
progress will enable the Company to meet the demands of a
constantly-increasing traffic not only with greater safety

The engineer sent by the Government to remove into the interior the
and other materials of the railroad constructed in 1889 by the
Maritime Canal Co. from San Juan del Norte (Greytown). 10 miles
along the contemplated route for the inter-oceanic canal, has found
the roadbed, etc.. iu such excellent condition that he has recommended
the Government not to interfere with the line. He recommends, on
the other hand, that it be extended for about 18 miles to Sarapiqui,
on the Rio San Juan del Norte, whence there is sufficient water for
steamboats to navigate all the year to Lake Nicaragua. This railroad
If so extended would free Western Nicaragua from the large
transport tax now paid to the Panama RR. Co., and from the longdistance transportation via Cape Horn to the Atlantio markets. - V.

Comparative Port Receipts and Daily Crop Movement.
comparison of the port movement by weeks is not
accurate, as the weeks in the different years do not end on
the same day of the month. We have consequently added to
our other standing tables a daily and monthly statement,

Tnese reports are summarized as follows:
Cotton picking was interrupted by rains in portions of Arkansas,
Louisiana and Mlsslsslnpi, and In the last-named State the staple suffered some damage. Wntle picking is praotically completed over the
eastern portion of the cotton belt, considerable ootton remains to be
gathered over the northern portion of the western districts. Under
the mild temperature oonditions the top crop made considerable
growth, especially over the eaBtern districts, but owing to theadvanoed
season it is not expeoted to mature.

Quality has suffered in some districts on aooount of fogs and insufficient water and cool weather during September. Staple is. however, satisfactory. We admit that during June to August we were
over confident in regard to prospects. The injury to the plant occurred chiefly in September, oaused hy fogs, which affeoted the plant

Indian corn futures have been quiet. The undertone of
the market has held steady, with the changes in prices
of an unimportant character. The visible supply statement
early in the week showed a small decrease, reflecting the falling off in the crop movement. Weather conditions in the
corn belt, however, were more favorable, and the crop movement is again increasing. Advices from the intericr also reNov. delivery in elev

ported freer country acceptances. Business in the spot market reached only moderate proportions, as there was less activity to the demand from exporters; prices held fairly
steady. To-day thtre was a quiet market, but prices advanced in sympathy with the rise in wheat values. The
spot market was moderately active and steady; sales for
export here and at outports were 375,000 bushels.

for an immediate improvement in this division, although
there are those who anticipate an improvement in the lightweight duplicate ordering. For immediate delivery the demand is very restricted and an attempt to force business has
created a greater irregularity of quotations on some things,
su^h a3 thibets. Kerseys, etc., are moving out of stock with
a fair amount of freedom, while cheviots, meltons and a
similar character of merchandise is being taken moderately
by the cloaking trade. The clothier has called on his earlier
trade and has not f our d much encouragement in lightweights, though it is believed that he will obtain a fair business as soon as he is aided by the weather, and then a fair
duplicate ordering is locked for by agents. Little development has taken place in the ordering of spring dress goods,

California.— Taxing Bonds Held by Banks.— The following with reference to the recent decision concerning the taxation of bonds held by California banks appeared a short
while ago in the San Francisco " Chronicle:"
Superior Judge Ogden at Oakland decided that bODds held by a bank are
not assessible tor taxation. The particular suit decided was that of the Oakland B>>nk of Savings against Alameda County brought for the recovery of
$7,428 9fl paid as taxes on oonds to the amount of *654.4uo.
accordance with a recent decision of the Supreme
judge Ogden's ruling is
Court in a test case brought across the bay by the Germania Trust Company
against the city of San Francisco, and in that case the Courts held that tbe assessment of the bonds would constitute double taxation, the Court stating in
effect that the bonds were virtually a mortgage upon the property of the corporations issuing them, and as property of these corporations is supposed to
be assessed at its full value, the assessment of the bonds would be double taxation In the San Francisco case Justice Van Dyke dissented from tbe prevail-

m

ing opinion, holding that it was the intention of theframersof the present
StaieCons'itution that bonds should be assessed.
the
The Assessors of the various counties levied taxes on these bonds forheld
first time last ye*r on account of a ruling by the Attorney- General, who
the Courts have decided against his ruling, the

result of Judge Ogden's decision will govern similarsuitsbrought by theother
banks of this city whose bonds were also taxed.
