MASTER CAR BUILDER CAN
TIELD HAS RESIGNED.
He Is to Become Vice President and
General Manager of a Railway
Supply Company He Has Been
with tho Lackawanna Slnc'o May,
1 809 His Successor Has Not Yet
, Been Named Conference of Prom
inent Railroad Men Abput Car
Service This and That.
One of the blRsest surprises In rall
oad I'lrcles for some time, was caused
year&rdiiy by the announcement that
X,. T. I'anilcld, master car builder of
the Lackawanna railroad, has tendered
ills resignation. The announcement was
L. T. CAJsFllU.D.
L'ontirmed by Sir. Canfield himself,
when he returned to the city late in tho
day, but he would not discuss the
matter at any length.
He has had such n move In mind for
onio time, and formally tendered his
resignation to President Truesdale on
December 2, but the matter was not
taken up by the officials until a meet
ing held in New Toik last week, when
itr. Canfield announced his intention of
becoming the vice-president and gen
or.il manager of a railway .supply com
pany, with headquarters in Xew York.
The resignation has not yet been ac
cepted, but in all probability .will be, to
take effect the end of tho year. No
Micccbsor to Mr. Canfield has been de
rided upon as yet, and probably will
not be announced for several weeks.
Mr. Canfield is at present about 40
years of age, and is a native of Kliza
licthtown, O. His first railrnod experi
ence was with tho 1ig Four, where' ho
acquired a thorough knowledge of car
From there he went to the Chicago,
Hock . Island Pacific, where- ho rose
rapidly.- lie began as foreman, ''was
first promoted to general foreman," and
linally to master car builder, which
position lie held when he severed his
connection with the Hock Island after
ten yeais' service.
He then entered the employ of tho
ncanuara itauway equipment company
as sales agent, serving in that capacity
for two years, and resigning to come
with the Delaware, Lackawanna und
"Western In May, 1S99.
Mr. CanflpJd represents the modern
pchool of railroad officials, and is in
terested in everything that makes for
n better service. He is a thorough stu
dent of affairs in his particular line,
and Is a prominent figure in the Master
Oar Builders' association, serving on
fieveral Important committees.
He Is of a very inventive turn, being
the patentee of a car truck and other
useful devices. Mr. Canfield was re-i-ently
re-elected president of the Scran
ton Car Foremen's association, an
organization for which lie is largely
responsible, and which holds monthly
meetings In the Hallroad Young Men's
Christian association for the study of
He Is one of the gonial, approachable
type of officials which President Trues
dale lias brought to the Lackawanna,
and who have been such a factor In
making friends for the road.

"Wnll Street Review.
Now York, Doc. 15. The protective
measures agreed upon by tho banks of
this city had the effect of cheeking a dan
gerous looking decline lu tho stock mar
ket today and tho market closed tranquil
and rather dull. The undcrtono nt tho
Inst was firm and the losses of tho earlier
part of tho day generally weio recovered.
When Saturday's level had been reached
on tho recovery tho action of thn market
Indicated that the measures taken by the
banking community wore by no menus de
signed to Induce sacculation for the rlso
nt this time. Pi Ices of the market lend
ois nt they loso over Saturday's level
wore held back by very liberal offerings.
Tho statement was mndo thilt no fears
were entertained of the ptescnt situation
and that tho formation of tho protective
pool was only a precautionary measure
and probably no action would bo re
quired on tho part of Its membeis In the
way oi supplying liuim: w tno marKct.
While the knowledge of the steps taken
by the ruling powers lu the financial
world Induced a feeling of great relief In
all quartets, the belief was not disguised
that tho pool was an omcrgoney mensuio
not differing in kind or ilrgicco from
those adopted in other periods of cilses
In Wall street. The action of tho mnikct
this morning on top of InBt week's decline,
following as th.it did tilsu a prolonged
pel loci of gindual decline, awakened real
anxiety over the outcome. Tho violent
meusnres adopted lu the Venezuelan trou
ble added to the unoaslne-M. Sentiment
was also pessimistic over the money out
look. The opening rate was 10 per cent,
and the day's large syndicate lequlie
ments and the heavy accumulations for
the Staudiird Oil dividend aroused the
fear that there would bo largo additional
v.lthdruwnls of credit. No only tho Imme
diate but the prospective syndicate needs,
tunning to many millions of dollars, were
calculated to aggravate the feais of bor
rowers. The statement of the country's
foreign trade for November was discour
aging as to tho foreign exchange situa
tion showing as It did a decrease In tho
balance of trade In our favor of over
SJ4.000.MO compaved with November, 1101.
The foreign exchange market also weak
ened materially. This last named feature
was directly due to the higher money
late. What effect upon all these factors
may reuit irom tno provision ot a i'.
Ii(i0.(i00 relief fund for the New York money
market Is a problem which Is tho subject
of murh intciostod surmise. The market
showed some hesitation at the close, but
the tone was firm. Total sales today,
KI.OOO shares. The bond market was broad
and In tho morning was weak but showed
somo recovery. Totnl sales, par value.
$.1.10,000. United Stales bonds wero all
