ADVANCE IN STOCKS
RISE OFFERS ENCOURAGEMENT
FOR TAKING PROFITS.
FEW SECURITIES ARE OFFERED
Sales Sufficient to Cause Only Occa
sional Wavering, but New High
Level is Reached.
New York. The market for securi
ties last week showed a degree of vi
tality that offered encouragement for
marketing holdings, accumulated from
time to time in consequence or the
attractive higher level of prices
established. At the level attained, the
highest point of the year in the case
of a number of conspicuous stocks,
and in consequence the highest
touched since the spring of last year.
There were sales sufficient to cause an
occasional wavering of the price move
ment and an irregular market where
new advances accompanied the set
back in stocks previously advanced.
The characteristic feature of the trans
actions, however, was the compara
tive paucity of offerings for sale and
the relative ease, therefore, with which
operations to advance prices were
made effective. Those operations
were admittedly largely professional
and showed the manipulative devices
usual in the professional conduct of
leadership In speculation. For the
success which attended these efforts
the strong technical position of the
market and the general Improvement
in speculative sentiment must he al
lowed credit. This sentiment found
expression from many sources in the
financial, industrial and commercial
departments of affairs. There was an
unusual number of statements of hope
ful views and opinions on the part of
prominent financiers and capitalists in
the form of Interviews to the news
papers. These were me more euecme
in inspiring confidence because of
their agreement on the main points of
the situation in which the expressed
hopefulness were based, and which
are safely obvious to the ordinary ob
server to be confirmed in the news of'
Much " attention was attracted
throughout the week to the question
of advances in freight rates by the
railroads. Much remains to he set
tled, both as to the policy in this re
spect to he followed by the railroads
and as to the effect of such policy on
the general business prospects. Out
spoken arguments have come from
prominent railroad officials in behalf
of an increase, the contention being
that advances In freight rates have
not kept pace with the rise in price of
materials and labor, so that profits on
the present basis are not sufficient to
establish credit such as will secure
the use of capital for expenditure in
extension and betterments. Much of
the stagnation in demand for interna
tional output is held by this argument
to be traced to the paralysis of credit
under which the railroads have been
AVERAGE WAGES ARE HIGHER.

THE STATE GAPITAL
MATTERS OF INTEREST TO ALL
COMPLAINT OH ASSESSMENT
Judge Edgar Howard, Citizen and Tax
payer, Wants the State Board to
Make an Investigation.
Little Matter of $9,000,000.
Judge Edward Howard of Columbus,
as a citizen and taxpayer, appeared
before the State Board of Assessment
to remind the board that the Union
Pacific railroad had omitted to return
an Item of $9,000,000, the value of
ties, material and other stock. As evi
dence that this property existed Mr.
Howard submitted a certified copy of
a statement made by W. L. Park, gen
eral superintendent of the road, at a
hearing before the railway commis
sion. This statement was as follows:
"We have in our stock supplies ai
Omaha, Council Bluffs and along the
road nearly $9,000,000 in ties and ma
terial and other stock which It is in
tended to add to this property."
The Board of Assessment has notl
fle Mr. Park to appear Monday if he
has anything to say why the amount
should not be added to the valuation
of the road.
To Mr. Howard the board said the
assessment of railroad property had
already been made, but the judge in
sisted that if it were true that the Un
ion Pacific had failed to return so
much of its property, certainly the as
sessment could be opened and the new
property aded to the valuation. After
some deliberation the board concluded
to request Mr. Park to appear and
give his side of the story.
The Union Pacific made a return on
this class of property, but it is figured
its value was in the neighborhood of
$2,000,000 instead cf $9,000,000.
LUMBERMEN PAY THE COST.
Settle $3,154 Expenses in Trust Litiga
tion. Secretary Bird Critchfield gave his
personal check for $2,722.39 to Clerk
H. C. Lindsay of the supreme court
and presented receipts from witnesses
for $431.70 in payment of cost amount
ing to $3,154.09 In the lumber trust
suit recently decided by the court.
Mr. Critchfield is secretary of the Ne
braska lumber dealers' association
which was defendant in an injunction
suit Instituted by the state on the
ground that the association was being
conducted in restraint of trade under
the anti-trust laws of Nebraska. The
supreme court did not enjoin the as
sociation from continuing In existence
but enjoined its officers from contin
uing to permit unlawful acts to be
committed by Secretary Critchfield or
others connected with the organiza
tion. The retail lumber dealers con
stituting the membership were by
their own ofllcers assessed to pay the
court costs. Of the $2,733 paid in
cash by the association, most of It will
go to the state as re-imbursement for
costs paid by Attorney General
Thompson from public funds at his
disposal, for conducting prosecutions
of this nature.
