NEW YORK STOCK MARKET
WEEK'S TRADING "WAS A DiSAP
ponerarmT all round.
Unfavorable Bank Statement Affect
ed Business Yesterday Foreign
Discount Rate Very Firm.
KBW TORK, Aug. 23. "Weakness was
pretty generally manifested throughout
the entire stock market today but as
the offerings of 6tocks -were only fairly
large in Brooklyn Transit, not much of an
Inroad was jnfide on prices. Early hesi
tancy was succeeded by a rising mar
ket but the entire list weakened In the
late trading on the publication of the
bank statement and liquidation In Brook
lyn Rapid Transit. Numerous favorable
"weekly statements of earnings came to
hand, but their showings were without
avail In sustaining prices. Respecting
the recent activity and strength In St.
Louis Southwestern, the July statement
made known today is explanatory. The
report showed a gain of CO per cent in net
earnings over the corresponding period a
year ago. Estimates as to the extent to
whloh the banks had recouped themselves
on Subtreasury operations, and the In
terior currency movement for the loss In
cash last week, were not borne out In the
official report. The discrepancy Is thought
to be due to the complicated system of
averages which does not Indicate the
banks' real strength.
Results In the stock market this week
were disappointing to bulls and bears
alike. "While the market was unresponsive
to good news, unfavorable reports failed
to create any marked liquidation. The
floating supply of stock is admitted to
be small, owing to the absorption of prom
inent Interests who have" perfected or
are projecting various deals. "With the
holdings of investment interests to be
considered, caution nccersarily surrounds
bear operations. No important bull pools
developed but there were some move
ments which had a manipulative appear
ance. The best illustration of the narrowness
of the market was attested by the changes
which occurred in a special stock when '
a large selling or buying order was made.
Taking Into consideration the changes
In market values that were made through
the operations, the paucity of real supply
and the Inability of the market to digest
easily was apparent. When conditions
like this arise general interest in fluctua
tions wanes, and the market Is given
over to the traders whose operations are
of the day-to-day order that produces
the general stagnation In financial mar
kets the world over.
"With the unsettled Chinese situation
agitating civilization, measures to recoup
the treasuries of the various nations in
volved for the Immense sums expended
are hard to decide on. American finan
ciers are well fortified against possible
unusual drain of gold, and banks are
steadily strengthening their position by
increased circulation. Foreign govern
mental institutions arc also pursuing
measures to enable them to meet the
enormous expenditures of their respective
governments. The position of the Bank
of England was considerably strengthened
by receipts of gold from here and the
colonies. Retrenchment, as for some time
past, continues to be the policy of the
Bank of France.
According to trade reports a distinct
lmprox'ement is noted in various lines, but
the volume of business is not up to the
average owing to the unsettled state of
leading industries, and usual contraction
in a National election period. No essential
change occurred In money market condi
tions. Payment by the Government by
refunding operations and gains from the
Interior have practically restored the cash
loss te the banks of last week. Stocks
moved very Irregularly throughout, but
worked lower toward the close on sales
by tired holders. Various factors com
bined to Infuse activity in special Issues,
but although rumors were plentiful no
definite news developed. It mattered lit
tle to the traders what semblance of truth
surrounded special moves as long as they
afforded an opportunity for a profitable
turn. Foreign support, which last week
was an effective backing, was withdrawn
and although tales were small, the senti
mental effect was an aid to short sellers.
The Jxrnd market shows periods of ac
tivity and strength, with exceptionally
heavy trading in the St. Louis Western
Issues. Irregularity became quite marked

has been coming in almost up to the
closing moment, it is not all shown in
the week's statement.
The export of gold is practically at an
end for the present, and probably will not
be resumed to an appreciable extent be
fore the second week in September, when
the third installment of the British ex
chequer bonds will have to be provided
for. It is possible that England's .need
in this direction may lead to an offer of
Inducements that may cause the yellow
metal to flow in her direction, but in the
meantime the supply will be considerably
augmented by receipts from the Pacific
Coast, so that in any event nothing but
an unprecedented demand can cause us
even temporary embarrassment.
The fact that the New York banks re
ceived from the Interior during the week
almost 52.000,000 more than was withdrawn
gives evidence of a satisfactory condi
tion In the Southwest and "West; In fact,
reports from those sections seem to indi
cate a plentiful supply of money, and lead

TO BUILD OCEAN SHIPS.
Chicngo Shipyards "Will Have the
World for a Market.
In assuming the contract to build four
large steamers for service in the Atlantic
Coast trade, says the Chicago Times
Herald, the American Shipbuilding Com
pany has opened up to Chicago a new
field of" Industry that gives promise of
Previous to this time all the craft con
structed at tho shipbuilding yards of the
company in South Chicago have been for
use on the Great Lakes only. These yards
have long been capable of building steam
ers for the coast traffic, and the only
hindrance to supplying that class of trade
has been .the condition of the Welland.
Canadian and St. Lawrence Canals. They
have hitherto been so small and the
water so shallow as not to permit the
passage of steamers of the reaulred di
mensions from the lakes to the ocean. In
consequence of this difficulty, which for
several years seemed insurmountable, no
effort was made by the America'n Ship
building Company to secure any of the
contracts for coast vessels. The comple
tion of the work of widening and length
the shipbuilding yards along the Groat
Lakes have come into competition for the
coast steamer trade.
President W. L. Brown, of the Ameri
can Shipbuilding Company, stated yester
day that the four steel steamers which
are to be delivered to the owners on the
Atlantic Coast with the opening of navi-1
gatlon In the Spring will bo the first craft
built at the lake yards to ply in salt
The opening of the new industry does
not interest Chicago alone. The American
company has yards at Milwaukee. West
Superior, Duluth, Bay City, Detroit, Wy
andotte, Buffalo and Lorain, all of which
are similarly affected, though some of
L them in not so large a degree. The yards
at South Chicago are adapted for the
construction of the largest steamers that
ply the lake waters. Somo of the ships
now in constant use in the lake trade
have double the capacity of those which
are to be built for coast traffic, and while
they are altogether suitable for the lat
ter class of service, it would be utterly
impossible to got them through the
canals. - Many steamers that now ply
the lakes are of dimensions that would
permit of their getting through the can
als, and it would be possible to transfer
them to the coasting trade.

J. W. Harrison, the, coal broker of San
Francisco, in his circular for the. week
ending on Saturday last, says: "During

sured an equal amount weekly for some
months to come, there would be no
ground for fear of a fuel shortage, as
this Is largely in excess off our weekly

being taken freely from ship's side on

Strike of Tillamook. Fishermen.
The fishermen on Tlilamook Bay decided
on Monday to ask for a raise in the price
of salmon and If their demands were
refused to go on strike. Unable to get
what they wanted from Elmore's cannery
or from those who were salting salmon,
they did not fish on Monday night, al
though there was a good run of fish. All
they wanted was 50 cents for large sal
mon, 20 cents or sllversldes and 7 cents
for chums, which Is a raise of 15 cents,
5 cents and 2V cents respectively upon the
price paid the fishermen last season. El
more's cannery would have "started up
on Tuesday, everything being In readi
ness to do so, but was unable to do so
owing to the strike, as all the cannery-
boats are included In the strike. As this
appears to be a reasonable demand on
the part of the fishermen, considering the
price paid for salmon on the Columbia
River, it seems as though the fishermen
may be the case actually, but as money placed, evidently to cover up the crime. it is only within tho last 12 months' that i will not recede from their demand.
