ers Throughout Country.
NEW TORK. Jan. 19. (Special.)
burins: the vear 1920 tho people of
he United States lost more than $500.-
H0 000 through "investment" in
hvorthless and frauaulent securities.
The year Just passed was a banner
ine for unscrupulous stock promoters
l.nd the toll paid by the American
I. ublic was equivalent to approxumaie-
y $5 for every man, woman and child
In the country.
Left in the savins? Darks or put
Into legitimate, dividend-paying in
vestment this sum would have re
turned as interest or profit between
E20.000.000 and J30.000.0O0 annually.
Each year for generations past.
I tock swindlers have taken from the
ublic an ever-increasine sum. Within
he last four or five years the annual
loll has doubled and trebled. The lib-
hrty and victory loans taught saving
lo millions of persona who never be-
lore had practiced thrift, and gave
re-sh incentive to the flotation oi
Uocks from which there was little
liope of return in the form of divl-
iends or other profit and sli&nt pros
pect of ever petting anything back
through liquidation.
Public Safeguard VrtsrA.
Houston Thompson, member of the
federal trade commission, testified be
ore the house judiciary commission.
thich was considering the recom-
Inendations of President Wilson for a
avfonal blue sky law. that half a
lilion dollars was squandered an-
liually by the public on worthless
Securities, in ursring that the widest
iubllcity should be given by the pro-
Inoter or underwriter offering securi
I ies for sale, Commissioner Thompson
aid:
"Unless this is done, each year ap
proximately $500,000,000 will be squan
dered in 'wildcat' investments and the
ublic will continue to purchase so-
I ailed legitimate stocks already water
logged by bonuses and commissions."
The year 1919 and the- early part
.f 1920, through the incorporation of
thousands of new companies whose
I apitaiization ran into the tens of
million's of dollars, paved the way for
he promotion of worthless and fradu-
lent securities which last year cost
he public $300,000,000.
In the month of October, 1919, for
xample, new incorporations in the
astern states amounted to $2,363.-
00,000, and the monthly average for
1019 was more than $1,030,000,000, or
nearly seven times the monthly aver-
!.ge shown by the five years prior to
le war.
Promoter Sfe Opportunity.
Wages were high, money was plen-
if ul and the period following the end-
Ing of the war presented a golden op
portunity to the promoters of worth
less and fraudulent securities. The
billions of little "capitalists" created
y the government's war loans, flushed
Ivith the enthusiasm of their first
xperierrce in the realm of invest
ment, were eager for new and more
I drilling financial adventures, and
hey had not long to wait. Just as it
id following the American revolu
tion, the war of 1812 and the civil
Ivar, the fever of speculation spread.
Coming down to 1920 we find that
y far the larger part of the $500,000,-
00 sunk into worthless and fraudu
lent securities was taken out of the
l ockets of the people who could least
hfford it small tradesmen and little
Ivage-earners who believed the "dol-
lars-for-cents" promises of glib
longued stock salesmen or whose im
bgination was captivated by the
U'lowing pictures of easy money
tainted In neatly printed prospec-
I uses.
A few stock swindlers were" con-
I icted last year, a few promoters
riven out of business or forced to
love to some other state, but none
f the great army of "investors" who
ut money into these fake stocks will
ver get a penny back. The money is
rone forever and with it the confi-
ence of many of these "investors"
In American business enterprise and
aith in the government which per-
aits such things to be.
Towards the close the market developed f
a stronger tone, accompanied by reports
of lighter country offerings, due to the
decline in price.
Oau, Wold lower In sympathy with corn,
but at times displayed an undercurrent
of strength. Receipts continue small, with
no Indication of an increase as the coun
try is offering sparingly. The spot trad
Ing basis today was about 4 cent higher
than yesterday. 75.000 bu.shels reported to
exporter, (seaboard). Any Improvement
In the demand, domestic or foreign, will
find tht market very responsive.
Provisions Trade somewhat more at the
lower levels, with considerable buying
credited to leading interests. Cash de

Liberty Bonds Are Firm; Quicken
ing of Bnsines in Various
Lines Is Reported.
NEW TORK. Jan. 19. The stock market
today seemed disposed to throw orf much
of Its apathy and reactionary tone, prices
of many popular shares moving upward
to the accompaniment of broad and active
dealings.
Commercial authorities reported a quick
ening of business in various lines. This
was reflected in the coming of buyers rep
resenting foremout mercantile interests.
Offsetting this, however, the Pennsyl
vania railroad system announced the pros
pective cutting down of Its working time
with the alternative of a 20 per cent re
duction In the working force and the Iron
Age emphasized the low rate of capacity
at which most independent companies are
operating.
The market developed Its most definite
irena in tne xinal hour, when bull pools
renewed their maneuvers in several of the
conspicuous specialties, notably General
Asphalt, common and preferred, In which
shorts were driven to cover at net fains
of 4 and 8V4 points, respectively.
Closing quotations for leading oil, not
ably California and Mexican Petroleums,
aiuaebaker. General Electric and several
prominent specialties, showed net advances
of 2 to almost 5 points. Kails, steels and
equipments eased on the late rise of cat:
money from 6 to 7 per cent. Sales were
ioj.ooo- snares.
Excepting sterling, the foreign exchange
market was strong, notably French re
mittances, evidently In anticipation of an
early loan here. Scandinavian rates also
were substantially better.
Liberty Issues led the firmer tone of the
bond markets. International flotations also
making moderate gains. Total sales, par
value, $12,260,000. Old United States
bonds were unchanged on call.

Bears had the advantage in wheat, ow--ig
more or less to a current opinion that
anuary is a month of declining prices.
'ro.peeta of enlarged shipments soon
-om the southern hemisphere were also
lie subject of considerable attention. Re
ewal of gossip that the Italian govern
nent was reselling wheat tended further
depress the market, and besides there
as much talk of untoward business con
itlons in Europe. The resulting down
urns let to export buying estimated at
500.000 bushels to be shipped from the
.ulf of Mexico. A belter domestic milling
mand was also noted. Nevertheless,
nly a moderate amount of the seMu,cir
it prices was overcome.
Corn and oats for immediate delivery
luched the lowest price level since 1910.
.iberal receipts of corn were e.hioflv ---
ponsible.
Provisions were weak in sympathy with
rain.
The Chicago market letter received yes

Coffee Futures Close Higher.
NEW YORK, Jan. 19, The market for
coffee futures opened at a decline of 5
to 9 points In response to the unsettled
showing of the Brazilian cables and some
trade selling pressure presumably to hedge
purchases in the cost and freight mar
ket of late yesterday. The vague rumors
of probable re-opening of Brazilian loan
negotiations appeared to have made f
considerable Impression on sentiment, how
ever, and early offerings were quite read
ily absorbed by Wall stret or commission
house buying with prices later showing
rallies. May sold up from 6.80c to 6.95c
and closed at 6.90c, and the general mar
ket closed at a net advance of 5 to 7
points. January, 6.15c; March. 6.50c;
May. 6.90c: July, 7.30c; September, 6.09c;
