NEWYORKSTOCRS AND BONDS
Stringency in Call Money Relaxes
and Market Rallies.
SOUTHERN PACIFIC IS BID UP
Ueellnea Karl? In Dar Are Atlrlhated
to Effect of Conference of Rail
road Eaeeatlrra with
NEW YORK, Jan. 4.-The stringency In
the call money rate relaxed today and
prices of stocks rallied, thus reversing the
process of yesterday. Corresponding
changes occurred In stock market senti
ment regarding the expected presidential
Tho easing of the money maiket was
due In part directly to the liquidation In
the stock market, which was forced or
Influenced by the calling of loans. The
hanks thus Increased their resources and
the stock market lessened Its demands for
money. The precipitate fall In prices yes
terday also carried with It a growth m the
short Interest In the market. There was
enough show of support to take away the
appearance of abandonment of the specu
lation by Its recent powerful supporters,
an appearance which was of great Influ
ence in discouraging the speculative senti
ment yesterday. The process of liquida
tion was pushed to further lengths early
today and the level of prices at one time
was I to 2 points lower than yesterday's
close nulte. generally. The call loan -mar-ket
opened at 9 per cent, and the urgency
of tho demand contributed to the selling
pressure in stocks'. "
The character of the buying and bid
ding up In Southern Pacific served as as
surance also that Influential support was
being extended. The strenrth of this stock
ultimately spread Its effect bv sympathy
through the rest of the market. R -ports of
the conference between the president and
the executive heads of several great rail
road systems confirmed the uneasiness
caused by yesterdays reports, and had
much to do with the morning declines in
prices of stocks. Then came a statement
from President Brown of the New York
Central, one of the conferees, proposing to
reel no apprehension about the proposed
bill, either In Its probable effects on the
railroads or Investors. It was even as
serted that the precedent of previous legi
slation Justified a hope that .Increased in
come for railroads might result.
Later came the report from Washington
that the president's message on the inter
state commerce law amendments, once
postponed from Wednesday to Friday, had
been again set forward to next Monday,
from this it was concluded the railroad
presidents' arguments had been taken into
renewed consideration with a prospect of
working changes in the exebutlvo recom
mendations to congress.
A factor in quieting anxiety about 'anti-
corporate measures was the news of the
prooigious merger of trust companies ef
fected under the ausnlces of J r Mrtrflrnn
and Company. The accomplishment was
felt to demonstrate an ability in-the direc
tion that deprived the outlook of cause for
anxiety from the standpoint of vested
capital, -me rally put prices generally
higher than yesterday's closing.
Bonds wore Irregular. Total sales par

MAYOR REMINDED OF FARM
I.Ives of Two Dahlnaana, Ona a Mayor,
Other a Farmer, Ara Brought
Mayor Dahlman has received from his
old home In Texas a local paper contain
ing the article recently published In The
Bes concerning a picture of a brother that
he had not seen for thirty years. Com
menting on The Bee article, the Texas
"Widely different are the lives of these
two men and brothers. One the mayor of
a great western city, trusted personal
friend and political lieutenant of W. J.
Bryan, and of national reputation on ac
count Of his own picturesque political',
career. The other a simple, homely farmer,
living close to nature, undisturbed by the
ambitions and aspirations of the poli
ticians. Yet, ws bet Mayor Dahlman often
sighs for the peaceful life of Farmer Dahl
man, especially as ha looked at the picture
of those hogs and remembered the kind of
sausage that made old DeWItt county
The mayor waa quite tickled over the
comment of the home papei "Those sau
sages we used to get down there were
certainly the proper stuff," said The mayor.
"On a morning like this, when I was com
pelled to take a hack down' town from
my home, I could have endured the chilly
ride much better if I had been daTylng
with a half dozen or so of them. But,
alack and alas, there are other sausages
than those which come In ring and In
fragrant plies on platters." 1
SHIP SUBSIDY BILL IS
Humphrey Measure Said to Have
Backing; of Administration.
AID F0S SECOND-CLASS. SHIPS
Illll Carries the Same Rate (or Mall
Service as Is Now Paid to
Vessels of the First
WASHINGTON, Jan. 4 Representative
Humphrey of Washington today, introduced
In the house a bill providing for ship sub
sidy by the United States government,
which measure is understood to have the
approval of President Taft and the admin
istration and to be th one upon which
the proponents of subsidy bill will concen
trate their efforts to procure Its enactment
The Humphrey bill provides an Increase
In pay to American ships for carrying the
malls to South America, China, Japan, the
Philippines and Australia; bringing it up '0
$4 per mile for an outward voyage of 4,000
miles or more. An Increased tonnage tr.x
on the transoceanic trade is provided and
it is proposed to sd,mit foreign built ships
to American register for the foreign trade.
The author of the bill In an explanation
of Its provisions said the proposition to
Increase the pay for carrying the nlall was
the moat Important feature of the measure.
The postmaster general , is ..authorised t
pay second-class ships for carrying the
malls the same rate of $4 per mile that Is
now paid to first-class ships..
Mr, Humphrey points out that opponent!
of ship subsidy seem pot to be aware that
we already have this subsidy, fo first-class
ships under a law enacted in 1891, which
law, he claims,- "is-responsible for every
American vessel on- the Atlantic ooean,
and if repealed would cause the American
flag to disappear fro hi . the seas within
sixty days. '
Subsidy to Smaller Ships.
The law of 1891, says' Mr. Humphrey de
fines a first class ship as one of over 8,000
tons and of twenty knots speed which has
been a high requirement that vessels .of
that class have not found It profitable to
engage In South American and Pacific
ocean trade. Mr. Humphrey proposes In
his bill to give the same subsidy to vessels
of 6,000 tons capacity and of sixteen knots
speed. The bill lays down many require
ments for vessels before they can seoure
the subsidy. ' '
The ships must be built according to
plans approved by the secretary of the
navy of Iron of steel and with, a view to
their use in the time of war, and be able
to carry four or more cannon of hot less
than six-inch calibre. They must at all
times be at the demand of the government.
They must carry American boys and train
them In seamanship and be officered by
American citizens and have crews com
posed of 60 per cent or more of American
sailors. The vessels cannot be sold with
out the consent of the secretary of the
Mr. Humphrey adds:
"It might be well to add for those who
have been declaring that the proposed leg
islation was to benefit existing lines that
not a ship now running can take ad
vantage of the provisions ,of this hill.
Neither need any of the 'watch dogs' of the
treasury exercise their lungs, tor there Is
now danger of national bankruptcy. It
ts speflcally provided that the amount that
can be expended in any one year 'shall
not exoeed the estimated . revenue' from
the foreign msll service of that, year."
Mr. Humphrey's measure proposes to
bring Into the national treasury about
$1,000,000 annually through Increased ton
nage tax on vessels engaged in the trans
oceanic trade, "every dollar of which will
come from foreign ships," he says. Ameri
can vettsels subject to this tax may have
rebated the percent of their tonnage dues
by carrying American sailors, one for
each 1,000 tons ot the vessel. '
