WHEN THE DIVIDEND DOES NOT COME
(Copyright. 1914, by C. M. Keys, New York.)
A great many thousands of people In this country are going to
receive smaller incomes this year, and possibly next year, on account
of the reduction or passing of dividends on corporations' stock.
Already the list of corporations that have altered their dividend pay
ments as a result of the war rune close to one hundred names, and
there is no reason to believe that the end of the list has been
Sometimes the dividend reductions have been a direct result of
losses in Europe. One great American corporation which has plants
in Europe and 'which sold a large volume of its products in the
countries immediately affected by the war has no leas than 6,000 of
its employes called to the colors of the various nations fighting one
another. Its foreign plunts were all closed down. To make matters
worse, fts products are mostly sold on the instalment plan in the
poorer countries of Europe, and it had some million dollars' worth
of such contracts outstanding, many of which will now never be
collected, for they are debts owed to foreign corporation by the
peasant classes of Poland, Austria. East Prussia and Russia and, in
most instances, the bread-winner of the family has been called away
to It was obvious enough that it was good business judgment
on the part of this company to assume that it was going to have a
very heavy loss in Europe and to take what step? it could take to
meet this loss for the protection of all its stockholders. Therefore,
It cut its dividend in two.
There are, however, relatively few American corporations that
have large plants and large direct business of their own in the war
zone. They are mostly machinery lines, although some oil com
panies and meat companies al3o have actual investments in those
countries. This small j:»uup. however, is supplemented by a very
much larger gro>r> of industries whose markets will be curtailed
through the cut ;ig oIY of the Indirect European market. Their
products are sold to Jobbers, exporters and other handlers of com
merce. who. in turn, resell them to the merchants abroad. This
indirect blow at the marketing of American products will probably
affect a great many more companies than are directly affected by the
conflict in Europe.
This decline in the income of a great many thousands of people
In this country is probably the most direct answer to the question
that one hears so much, namely, how the war in Europe will hurt
the people of the United States. That the injury is already wide
spread amongst the investment class goes without saying. How it is
going to be met and what effect it is going to have upon the invest
ment public are the important questions arising out of the facts of
record. In addition to the actual cutting off of dividends, there is
a small group of companies that have already declared dividends
payable not in cash but in script. This is a minor factor, but one
that is worth consideration in relation to the whole question of
If one owns a stock which declares a 2 per cent, dividend payable
In script instead" of In cash, he receives a little certificate from the
company, which Is in the form of a promise to pay a certain amount
i>f money at a certain time, usually with interest added at a specified
rate. In the caac of one company, this script Is payaible in a year,
or on October 1, 1915. and bears interest at 6 per cent. In the case
of * railway company it Is payable in five years, and bears interest
at 4 per cent. The indications are that there will be quite a bit of
this script in the hands-of the public before long. Tlie question is.
what the stockholder can do with this script when he sets it. lie
has been accustomed to using the proceeds of the dividends to pay
his bills and lie will probably not find it easy to pay bills with this
script. Therefore, there will probably be a widespread public demand
for a market place in which these pieces of paper could be disposed
of. Such a market already exists in a very limited way for two or
threo of tije laiger issues that have been made, and this market will
probably expand so that a man can turn his script into cash at a
Where the dividends are actually reduced or ceased altogether,
there is no such resource. Here the income is cut absolutely. If the
dividends are cumulative, one can. perhaps, take comfort in the fact
that when normal conditions return, in all probability the dividends
will come back, if the stocks are good enough to justify confidence
that that is the case, the stockholders will try to borrow against this
stock the amount they would have received in dividends and will
count on paying off the accumulated debt when the back dividends
are paid up. This is not an unsound procedure provided the interest
rates are not too high, and provided, also, that the borrower has
other resources to meet an emergency or a long continued cessation
of the dividend. It is obvious that here again one really discounts
Where the dividends not accumulative, as in the case of
ordinary common stock of corporations, it will require confidence and
courage on the part of stockholders at large to refrain from becoming
panic stricken and sacrificing the stock. There will, doubtless, be
many cases in which so much of one's capital is involved that It
will be absolutely necessary to raise some money to meet expenses.
Such cases will be met either by borrowing, if one can find the lender,
or by selling a paH of the principal. So long as the public is con
fident that the condition is abnormal and will not long be continued,
there will probably not be any wholesale slaughtering of prices on
account of the dividend catastrophe.

FINED FOR IUEGATFISHINC
New Cumberland Man Arrested by !>•»
tail of State Police as Others
Make Their Escape
A detail of State police early Wed
nesday morning paid a visit to th»
wingwalls of the Susquehanna river op
posite New Cumberland an which it
was suspected a net was being fished.
They found two men there fishing, on a
of whom, on seeing the policemen, jump
ed info the water and started to wad®
and swim ashore. In the darkneas he
succeeded in eluding the police, hut !he
had a long, cold waide and swim of it.
The other man, W. Scott Guistwhite,
was arrested and taken before Alder
man Edward Hilton, In tihis city,
he pleaded guilty and paid a fine of S2O
Another part of the detail at th»-
snme time visited some wingwalls ore
the other side of the island, 'but they
were seen 'by the two men fishing and
jumped into their boat and started for
Bhore, escaping in the 'darkness.
The arrest of Guistwlbite makes sev
enteen arrested by the State police in
the last two or three weeks. The De
partment of Fisheries is intent on en
forcing the law in regard to tlbe utto of
this most destructive method of fi*hing,
and if the fine of S2O is not going to
'have sufticienit deterrent effect, t.he de
partment proposes to arrest the meu
under another provision of the law
whic'li forbids the use of devices to
prevent the migration of tidh, the fine
for which is SIOO or 100 days in jail.
If this does not have the effect t)be
department would call the attention of
the violators to the provisions of the
act of June 25, 1913, which provides
that no obstruction, dam, wiagwall or
any similar structure shall be placed in
a stream, the penalty .beimg SI,OOO. Un
der this act also the Water Supply Com
mission can compel any 1 person who
erects any such wall to remove it-.
