Tho committee of tho London Exchange
has published a list of securities In which
trust funds may bo Invested and has given
minimum prices for the same. There Is
also a proposnl at the British centre to

At homo tho most important step that
has been taken Is tho ruling that unlisted

State Bureau of Statistics Re
ports Increase of Product
and Number of Wage
Statistics of manufactures of the State
Bureau of Industrial Statistics of New
Jersey show that tho year 1913 was a
fairly prosperous one for the 3S0.P3S per
sons whoso Incomes, whether in tho form
of wages or salaries, are drawn from the
products of Industries.
Tho Increase In the number of estab
lishments In 1913, as compared with 1912,
was 82, or 3.2 per cent. Tho capital In
vested has grown from $919,137,610 in 1913
to JUG9,79G,304 In 1913, an Increase of $50,
C38,83I, or B.5 per cent.- Tho distribution
of this enormous capital, according to tho
requirements of industry', was as follows:
Invested In land and buildings, $224,359,
123; In machinery, tools and Implements,
$210,381,939; In all other forms, cash on
hand, bills payable, stock In process of
manufacture, etc., $331,855,137.
Tho cost of all stock or material used
In 1912 was V5IS,411,033; In 1913 It was ?6S9,
062,576, an Increase of $40,051,493, or 0.3 per
cent. The total selling value of all goods
made or work done was $1,031,402,715 in
1912. and $1.128,821,3S9 In 1913; the Increase
for the latter year was, therefore, $77,421,-
074, or 7.3 per cent.
Tho greatest number of wage earners
employed at any time during tho year
1913 was 360,321, the smallest number was
297,133 and the average number, 333,018.
Tho difference between the two extremes
wits 35,885, or 17.5 per cent, which Indi
cates the proportion of unemployment
experienced by the factory and workshop
wage earner of the State during 1913.
NOTES OF THE RAIL
A decrease of 5 per cent, per mile In
total operating revenue of railroads In
June compared with the same month of
last year Is shown In tho summary of
the Bureau of Railway Economics. The
summary also shows that there was a
decrease In operullng expenses of 4.1 per
cent. The net operating revenue per mile
wan $23 smaller, or 7 per cent., when com
pared with June. 1913.
With the Intention of breaking up tho
practice of passengers rldtnc on plat
forms of moving passenger oars, the
Pennsylvania Railroad has posted no
tlces on bulletin boards of the Pittsburgh
Division warning passengers of the dan
ger In so doing.
Through a lost advertisement a passen
ger on tho Maryland Division of the
Pennsylvania Railroad recovered $100
which he had lost on the platform In
Broad street station nnd which was
picked up by a brakeman and held by
the company until the owner was found.
Olliclalf of the Pennsylvania saw the ad
vertisement, which appeared once, got
Into communication' with the ni.m and
tho money, which was the savings of a
six months' cruise on u sailing vessel, was
returned to him.
Chicago is now assured of Its new $63.
000,000 union station and passenger ter
minal yards, the Pennsylvania und other
roads Interested In its Joint construction
having accepted the city ordinance gov
erning the undertaking. This Involved
the payment to tho city of $323,S03. and a
few weeks ago there" was danger that the
enterprise would be delayed In anticipa
tion of difficulty In raising tho money,
owing to tho war. This appears to have
been overcome. The work Is to be com
pleted in five years.
Statistics show that only a little more
than 3 per cent- of the passenger cars
turned out last year were of wooden con
struction, and In a few years those of
wood will have disappeared from the
principal qrteries of travel, If not from all
roads. In the coming year all postal cars
must be of steel. In the four years ended
January 1, 1913, steel passenger cars In
creased In number from 629 to 7271. and
steel nnderframo cars from 673 to 3298,
each of the former costing $13,000, which
serves to Indicate how expensive It is to
the railroads to make the change to metal

NEW FEDERATION OF
IS ORGANIZED HERE
State Body Covering Life,
Fire and Casualty Brokers
Will Make War on Pro
posed Obnoxious Laws.
Organization of the Insurance Federa
tion of Pennsylvania has been completed.
It has established temporary head'
iquatters In the rooms of the Fire Insur
ance Society, In Fourth street near Wal

brokers throughout tho State.
In a letter to brokers and agents, J,
W, Henry, president of the newly formed

the Insurance ngcut In Pennsylvania Is
In danger, nnd that there must be made
a co-operative attack on laws, which, he
says, the next Legislature plans to put
through covering Insurance regulation
"As you are well aware," pays Presi
dent Henry, "the Inauranco business has
been tho subject of attack by Legislatures
In snvornl States, nnd, as you know, the
Insurance agents of Ohio, "West Virginia,
Washington and other States, have been
put out of business after working years
In building up their agencies. Wc are at
this time confronted In Pennsylvania with
n Legislature about to convene to give
consideration to measures! vital to tho
Interests of ihe Insurance agents In tho
State of Pennsylvania, and we must be
prepared to meet tho issue fairly by be
ing organized Into a body that will wield
such an Influence na will grant to Us as
agents and citizens of the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania a right to contlnuo In
the Insurance business as a means of
livelihood. Had the agents been organ
ized In Ohio and other States, they would
still have their business.
"If the Insurnnco business Is attacked
and legislation passed which is detrimen
tal to the business, there will be no
fuithcr need of tho agent. The Insur
ance' companies have no right to como
In and say what character of legislation
shall bo passed, but wc, as citizens, tax
payers and voters of this Commonwealth
should say what sort of legislation shall
be put upon our bread and butter.
"Only organization can save and per
petuate to us the need of tho agent In
Pennsylvania, nnd ns flro Insurance, work
men's compensation and life Insurance
wo know will be matters for considera
tion by our next Legislature, we must,
for tho salvation of our business, bo
organized In a compact body, working
hand In hand In legislative matters to
safeguard our business."
