Passing Impressions of Finance
By Louis Guenther
Editor of the Financial World
The shadows of Villa, the Mexican
rebel leader, loomed menacingly over
the market all last week. His act of
shooting the British subject, Benton,
has occasioned tho gravest concern In
diplomatic circles and if tt Is shown
that the Englishman was wantonly
shot down, President Wilson may In
the end be forced to change his wait
ing attitude towards Mexico by assum
ing tho aggressive In the pacification
of that troubled nation. The United
States Is morally bound by the Mon
roe Doctrine to protect the lives of
the cltleens of other countries or let
foreign nations do It, which of course
would nullify the purpose of the
framer of this great measure which
was Intended to keep all the Ameri
cans free from conquests by foreign
nations. Until the grave situation
■which this ehooting has developed is
settled and out of the way we may
expect the market, under Its influence,
to be more or less sensitive.
Another sore spot is the strained
financial conditions in Paris, the finan
cial center of Prance. Rumors have
come across the waters that some of
the big underwriting bankers are not
in any too comfortable position and
that some of them had to be succored
to prevent them from going under.
While these rumors have met with a
prompt denial it has not laid the ghost
by any means. French underwriting
bankers, it is well known, have been
hit rather hard by their speculative
ventures in the Balkan States, Brazil,
and from their participation in Amer
ican bond flotations which have not
turned out profitable. They are large
owners of Frisco, Rock Island, Amer
ican Water Works & Guarantee, and
Mexican railroad and Irrigation bonds.
On all of these issues they have lost
heavily; they are now feeling the aft
ermath. But their travail is not help
ing our market any.
Domestic trade conditions are stead
ily Improving. The railways, our
principal arteries through which the
commerce of the country moves, re
port over 11,000 fewer idle cars. That
is a good sign, for it indicates that
the manufacturers are doing a bet
ter business and that more freight
is moving. But this is not the only
sign of recuperation in trade from
the pronounced depression that pre
vailed during the latter half of 1913.
There are others just as significant,
such as the news that the industrial
centers are finding employment for
more workers. This is not a reflex of
any sunshine movement, but mirrors
actually bettering fundamentals. Cars
do not move nor do employers hire
more men merely to create a better
feeling; those charges are due to ac
tual necessities.
One of the principal reforms to
which his party platform committed
President Wilson has turned out a
popular success. I speak of the newly
created reserve banking system. Of
the 7,500 and more national banks
chartered by the National Government
all but a very small and insignificant
number have joined and we shall soon
be able to judge whether this plan
will solve our annual currency prob
lem of tight money around each year's
harvest time. If it does that, then we
shall have occasion to give additional
thanks every Thanksgiving. The busi
ness men are confident with this sys
tem of a more elastic currency to de
pend upon that bankers can not turn
them from their doors as readily as
they have done formerly with the ex
cuse they have no more cash to lend
since they can rediscount their com
mercial papers with their regional

During the last year there have

I feel any hurt. But that was hoping
against hope and the disillusionment
has come this week when protective
committees were formed for the hold

cepted by knowing people as a sure

this money by assessing the stockhold
To those who know how faithfully
and patiently President Howard El
liott, of the New Haven, has labored
to meet the wishes of Attorney Gen
eral Mcßeynolds In disposing of such
properties as it holds, the news is re
ceived with regret that a breach has
arisen between them. The reported
differences is stated to be over the
period of time the New Haven should
have to sell these properties. Mr. El
liott contends they cannot be sold
without sacrifice under less than five
years; the Attorney General holds
from two to three years as plenty of
time. One fact is certain that the in
terest of the stockholders ought not
be needlessly sacrificed, for they at
least are innocent of any intent to
violate the Sherman law.
Dealers in municipal bonds are vir
tually cleaned out of good municipal
bonds. The popularity of these securi
ties spring from the new income tax
law. There is no ill wind but what
blows good to someone. This is empha
sized here. Municipal bondß are ex
empt from the tax. They need not
even be scheduled and many rich men
as well as rich estates have purchased
municipals to reduce their tax to the
Government under the new statute.
With the passing of the law a large
and instantaneous demand for these
obligations set in. Where bonds could
be bought but six months ago to yield
nearly five per cent., the prices have
gradually risen until the better grade
of municipals now yield an average
less than 4.6 per cent. There are no
Blgns of much slackening in the sale
of municipals.
No recovery has occurred in the
Standard Oil shares from their recent
slump. Stocks like Standard Oil of
California, Atlantic Kelining, Prairie
Oil & Gas, South Penn. Oil, Standard
Oil of New York and others have
failed to regain any part of the shrink
age in the high prices they reached
in the exciting rise of January which
caught a great many likely margin
traders in these shares. But there is
a firmer undertone to the market and
the shares that are coming on the
market seem to be passing into strong
