NEW YOnK( April 28. Interest In tha
' tlock market, from outsiders especially,
whlcll una """ ""- -
Ishlns 1" "1 ,ast f6W dayB' i0 a new
Itftse on life today, as It were, nnd the
advancing movement was ngaln resumed.
The cause for this was not hard to figure
out, and It waa wholly attributed to tho
,ho'ivln's made by tha United States Steel
Corporation In tho quarterly statement
for tne three months ending March 31.
Although tho net earnings were smallor
i .t..n In tho same period last year, thy
m .hnwd a substantial Gain over tho
( auarter ending December 81, while In
It jlrch of this year tho profits wcro more
I, thin four times as largo no In January.
The street x-uun. no . ..... ...w.w.
;,L that the corner In tho steel trade
i hs been turned.
f "... Mnrnh mrnfnirn. which Wera
t 132 031. showed that the dividend on
F ;i. rfrrrl stock was fully earned
In that month for tho first time since
last fall. anrt nftr a8 thcro " Btl11
iomethlng left over for tho common.
Taking the March figures as n, basts nnd
comparing them with January as tho
rate of progression, it was estimated that
the net for tho present month might bo
between JS.000,000 nnd $10,000,000. and that
lor tho three months ending with tho
10th of next June tho net figures would
bo about $25,000,00, and possibly $30,000,000.
Of course, this Is looking pretty far
ahead, hut, then, -with operations In
jUrch at the rata of C3 and 70 per cent,
and deliveries at higher prices than In
the previous two months, Indications aro
than o marked Improvement will bo
Upturns In tho list were generally con
fined to fractions, while In specialties tho
gains were even larger, two and three
points being chalked up, In tho case ot
Wcstlnehouse Eleotrlo this was particu
larly true, that stock moving up nine
points beforo 2 o'clock. Of course, rumors
of "war orders" were responsible. The
report had It that a $25,000,000 order had
been received from Hussla. Interborough
Metropolitan Issues also sought higher
levels and wcro quite active, tho common
rising more thnn two points and tho pre
ferred nearly three points. On tho Curb
a market was made for tho new Inter
borough consolidated preferred, which
opened at SO bid. No trades were mado
and the price was later quoted TS'iHS.
The market cased off from the high on
realizing sales but the demand was larg
er than tho supply and tho losses wero
quickly regained. In somo cases new
high records wero established, and tho
market closed etrong. A feature a few
minutes beforo tho end of tho session
was a vigorous demand for Chicago,
Bock Island Pacific stock, that issue
moving up 4 points in a few minutes.
The new 44 per cent, debenture bonds
of the New York Central when Issued
were tho strong and active feature In thn
bond market, nbout $7,000,000 changing
hands, $5,000,000 of this amount being In
the first two hours of trading, Tho prlco
advanced more than 2 points. Tho tlmo
for subscribing to tho new bonds .expired
yesterday, and It Is understood that
many of tho stockholders avnlled them
selves of tho privilege of taking somo cf
the bonds.
BORROWING $1,350,000
Real Estate Holding Company Mort
gages Two Car Barns.
Through Its subsidiary corporation,
known as tho Real Estate Holding Com
pany, tho Philadelphia Rapid Transit
Company has borrowed $1,350,000 from the
Pennsylvania Company for Insurances on
Lives and Granting Annuities.
Tho financing took the form of two
mortgagos on tho company's car barns at
10th ond Liuerno streets and In West
Philadelphia.! Tho money thus obtained
Is to be used to pay off old mortgages,
and by employing the Real Estates Hold
ing Company In the transaction It was
possible to put tho deal through without
asking permission of Councils.
The Rapid Transit Company owns all
of the $10,000 capital stock of the Real
Estate Company, on which $1000 Is paid In.

off from the final of yesterday.
The declines wero short-lived, howevr,
and May rallied sharply from $LG0M to

H.S4& to U7.
According to a cable from reliable
sources, Russia's harrest of 1911 was con
sldtrably bolow tho average, ylold and
only barely approached tho averarte. The
demand Is abnormal throughout tho Em

Our Position
Regarding Cold Storage
has not been altered by the refusal of the House
to repeal the present drastic law.
From the first this Bank has recommended
the adoption of the Uniform Cold Storage Law
drafted by the National Commissioners of
Uniform State Laws.
The decided vote by the Senate and the
vote in the House of 86 to 81 in favor of the
unconditional repeal of the present Cold Storage
Law, while not sufficient to repeal, proves that
the majority of our State Legislators are not in
favor of laws that unnecessarily hamper busi
ness. As business men to business men we again
appeal to our Senators and Representatives for
the adoption of the Uniform Law. We know the
present law hurts everyone in Pennsylvania,
including the Consumers, and benefits none
except merchants in Chicago and outside cities.
