LAND IS A
Career of the Get-Rich-Quick Scheme
TRLLS HIS STOKY IX COURT
Cannot Remember What lias Become of
Some of the Companies l'ormcd, but
Can Give Dizzy Dividend Figures by
the Yard-An Interesting Case.
By the United Press. 11
Philadelphia, Dec. 5. Dr. John H.
Durland, president of 'the Provident
Bond amd Investment company, who is
on trial in the United States district
court on the charge of using the malls
for fraudulent purposes, testified In his
own behalf today. He stated that he
had gone Into the bond enterprise in
1S89, and for twenty years had been in
the life insurance business. He organ
ized the Mutual Saving Fund and Dis
tribution association, in New York,
which had . run. of about sixteen
months aird the business of which was
conducted on the same principle as
that of the Provident company. The
witness told of "scurrilous" attacks
being made against the New York con
cern by ithe New York Herald, which
resulted In a 'temporary injunction be
ing granted against It, and for the pur
pose of continuing the business, ob
tained a charter in West Virginia,
following the building and loan asso
ciation uct. He ithen came to Phila
delphia und organized the Provident
' Dr. Durland then detailed the work
ings of the Provident company, he
prefacing this portiun of his testimony
with a declaration that the business
"Is as legitimate as any that exists."
He said that 90 per cent, of the bond
holders in the New York concern ex
changed their holdings for certillcates
In the Provident company, the latter
concern 'Haklng up the busim as at the
point where the New York Injunction
stopped It," and declared that all the
bonds agreed to be paid were paid and
that the Provident company is pre
pared to redeem every bond as it ma
tures. The witness endeavored to Il
lustrate that the prlnoiple underlying
the system is similar to methods em
ployed by life Insurance companies, but
Judge Butler Interposed: "He is not to
enter into theories with the Jury or
court. We could refer to pages of mat
ter relating to such things. From the
time of the South Sea bubble every
row und then such schemes crop up,
nd some men work themselves to be
lieve In them." The judge said that
the defendant should have every
vhance to defend himself, but he must
iot go Into theories.
An Insurance Company I.ost.
Cross examination by Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Newltt brought out the
fact that Durland had organized the
Citizens' Mutual Ijlfe Insurance com
pany of New York, and had served as
its actuary for one year. Being pressed
to tell what had become of this com
pany, he said he did not know, but that
he had heard of Us amalgamation, with
In 1881, Durland said, he was 'presi
dent of a co-operative life association
Which was not a success, and two years
later organized the Union Benelit
leugue In New York, which was after
ward amalgamated with the Citizens
In reply to Attorney Newltt Dr. Dur
land stated that he organized the Kquit
aible Investment and Trust aompany, of
Washington, und was Its president. The
capital stock of the Provident company,
the witness said, was $100,000, of which
$:'0,000 was cash.
After denying the truthfulness of the
printed charges. Dr. Durland said he
got 800 shares of the Provident company
and $5,000 In cash for services. The
etock was re-dlstributed among the
stockholders, this method being pur
sued to make it a full paid stock. Alto
Kether, he continued, 29 per cent. In
dividends had been paid on the $100,000
capitalization. He was asked how
many suits were pending against the
Provident company, and unswered that
there was one In Cincinnati and one in
. On re-examlnatlon by Lawyer Gross,
Durland said that he had been connect
ed with the New York Mutual Fund
Life association. He added that this
company had partd over $20,000,000 to
niimbers, and had a reserve fund of
$::, 000,000. He further explained about
payments of premiums of the Provident
company and 'Che method of payment of
dividends. He said that 2 per cent, on
the $100,000 capital, $2,000, had been car
ried Into the expense fund and the bal
ance Into the reserve fund. This con
cluded Durland'a examination. Several
other witnesses testified In Durland's

London, Dec. 5. The fact In especially
mada known today for the first time
that a challenge Ivas been made for the

The coal situation remains practically
unchanged, and there is a pretty gen
eral belief that the producing com
panies will this month, at least, udliere
ftrlctly to their respective allotments.
In prices also there Is a disposition to
adhere to the circular as nearly as pos
sible. "The new company which recently
purchased the Annora Coal company
from Charles Parrlsh have had bad luck
in the destruction of their bleaker by
lire just as preparations were belntf
made to resume work brisker than ever.
Reese Brooks of Scranton Is the princi
pal member of the firm, and accustomed
as he is to face all manner of discour
agements resolutely, he will not," says
the Wllkes-Barre Record, "permit this
misfortune to embarrass him long."
The fiscal year of the Lehigh Valley
railroad ended on Nov. 30, and enough !s
known to warrant the announcement
that, notwithstanding the depression in
business during the year past, the earn
ings have been sufficient to pay full
fixed charges and interest and leave a
small surplus beside. Heretofore the
company has not put forth Its annual
statement until the annual meeting in
January, but it Is intended to depart
from that custom this year, and the re
port will likely be issued to the stock
holders at least a week in advance of
K. H. Lawall, says the Wllkes-Barre
Record, Is not seeking the presidency of
the Lehigh Coal and Navigation com
pany, but If It should be offered to him
he would give the proposition very seri
ous consideration. Of course Mr. Law
all Is so well sHuated now and has his
collieries in such excellent shape that
only something very big could tempt
him to make a change. It Is quite true
that the Lelsenring family want him to
succeed tlio late K. B. Lelsenring, but
others must be consulted. George D.
McCreary, the treasurer of Philadel
phia, Is a large stockholder In the com
pany, and If he should want the presi
dency It Is very likely that his wish
would be gratified.
An Interesting lecture on some of the
financial problems of railroad munage
ment was delivered last Friday evening
at Ithaca, N. Y., before students of Cor
nell university by Thomas L. Greene, of
New York, secretary of the Anthracite
Coal Operators' association. The Ithaca
Journal says he spoke first of the. legiti
mate metho'd of "watering" stock and
told why It Is done. Bonds and shares
In large corporations must bo Issued at
par value. If then the intrinsic value
of the stock is Increased, either a larse
dividend must be paid or the stock must
be watered by giving shares for which
no equivalent Is received. The former
method Is by far the better but unfor
tunately public opinion will not sanction
high dividends and so the second meth
od has to be resorted to. It Is general
opinion that the dividends of a corpora
tion should be no greater than the
ordinary rate of Interest, while really
they ought to bo more, because corpora
tions take great risks in organizing a
business and they are entitled to be
compensated for taking those risks. The
difficulty with watering stock is that it
Is next to impossible to reduce the stock
In case profits fall off. The evil effect
Is then seen in the ohecklng nf facilities
as expenses are cut down in order to
keep up.: the dividends. So poorer ser
vice Is given to the public. Mr. Greene
dwelt at some length on the various
kinds of bonds. He brought out the
fact that a railway bond Is a mortgage
on the earning power of the road rather
than on the property Itself. Twenty
five per cent, of the railroads of this
country are Insolvent. This Is due main
ly to the cutting 1n freight rates. All
the railroads are beginning to show
weakness on this account and some
thing will have to be done. Mr. Greene
believes passenger nates are high
enough. At the conclusion of the lec
ture, a conference was held which
brought out several now facts of inter
est. One rather curious one was that
stock which Is paylnlg 10 per cent, may
bring only 100 on the market but if It
be doubled by watering, the shares now
paying 5 per cent, may be sold for par,
thus realizing 200 from Btock which had
previously brought only 100.

New York, Dec. C Over 170,000 shares of
American Huyor were traded In at the
Stock exchange today In a totul of SIN,.
m for the whole list. Busar, It will be
seen, completely overshadowed the gen
eral market and. In, fact, scarrely any
thing was discussed throughout tiie ses
sion except this stock and Its dividend
chances. In view of the public utter
ances of President Huvumeyer, and the
unprofitable condition of the refining
Industry It was thought thut the direc
tors as a matter of prudmice, would re
duce the rate. Therefore the meeting of
the directors which WW called for 1
o'clock toduy wus the center of attraction
and every rumor treiitlnir of the de
liberations of the manut'ers wus eagerly
discussed. It wus not until the close of
business, however, that anything di-flnlto
was known, It being officially announced
the.-o that the directors had decided to
declare tlio regulur rate of 1 per cent, on
the preferred and 3 per cent, on the com
mon. Accompanying the announcement
was a statement thnt the payment would
be made of the profits of earnings prior
to Sept. 1, 1894. Pendlinr the official an
nouncement the stock went through
some wild changes. It opened at KtiVj
against S5t4 last night, rose to 88, re
ceded to-OTH. and In the last ten minutes
of bhslneas on heavy purchases Jumped
to as, a net gain or i per cent, for the
day. The (early ,rlse was ascribed to
Washington advices that there will be no
"popgun" legislation at this lesslon of
congress. Chicago (J as was next In point
of activity and figured for 29,200 shares.
The stock after an early rlao to 73V4, re
acted to 71ia72. The rullway list wtos
weakened during the morning hour by
sales for London account, the foreigners
being disturbed by the poor trafllc returns
of, the western roads. The loss at thl.i
time ranged from & to per cent., 8t,
In the closing hour a better tone pre
vailed. The report from Washington that
the chances for the passing of un amend

. time, but when Sugar rose to 89 there
was more disposition on the part of the
Bhorts to cover as the congressional action
on this point Is considered of the great
est Importance to the railways. Sterling
exchange continues strong with rutes
near the gold exporting point. Money,
however, is again showing a declining ten
dency, both on call and for accommoda

were 14 to 3 per cent., Sugar leading.

TO OUR PATRONS,: . ..
Wushburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat
rons that they will this year hold to their usual custom
of milling S l'RICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers are
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to muture before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
E laced Washburn-Crosby Co.'s flour far above other
