Financial Omaha Produce
By ALEANDER DANA NOYES.
Chicago Tribune-Omaha ltee Leased Wire.
New York, May 8. The question
which arises in the mind of evry
man of affairs after the recent inter
esting occurrences in the financial
market is how far the hanging move
ments of money rates and prices on
the stock exchange have any definite
bearing on the course of trade and
Secretary Mellon summed what is
probably the first thought of business
men when he said last Wednesday
that, while the financial situation was
improving, the industrial situation
was showing practically no change.
The inference that finance and in
dustry were not only recovering
simultaneously, but were moving in
opposite directions, seemed to most
observers to be supported by the
Jfo Evidence of Recovery.
At the very moment when rates of
central hanl. In lh. n,n.M. ,
t markets were being successively reduced,
i when the American bank position In par-
tlcular, was being strengthened Droares-
slvely by the inrfour of foreign gold, and
when prices on the stock exchange were
advancing rapidly, the commodity mar
kets were reporting a larger average de
cline in April than In the two preceding
months; the country's iron production
was the smallest since the afttr-panlc of
1908 and the steel corporation's earnings
the lowest since the war panic of 1914;
the Pennsylvania railroad was reducing
its dividends and the other railroads
were for the most part, failing to earn
Interest on their funded debt and reports
from general industry were giving no evi
dence of recovery from the prolonged
It was not Unnaturally that the man In
the street, dismissing the stock exchango
movement as a matter of Wall Street
manipulation, and the lower bnk rates
as merely evidence of reduced demand
for credit In train depression, should con
clude that revival of trade was no more
actually in sight than it was at the end
of 1920. The moat that even Governor
Harding of 'the federal reserve could say
last week to the foreign trade conven-'
tlon at Cleveland was that the danger of
a financial crisis is past.
There ie, in fact, plenty of first-hand
evidence to the effect that the period of
Industrial depression Is not yet near Its
end. If the condition of the steel trade
a traditional "barometer of industry"
is taken as witness, we are still in a
period of continued reaction. ,1
Even by naturally hopeful people It
is not overlooked mat in the preuent In
dustrial reaction we are not merely suf
fering from the liquidation of a boom
period, which brought familiar collapse
of credit after a period of wild specula
tion, but that we are also undergoing
adjustment from the greatest war, the
most enormous waste of capita and the
moat violent derangement of industry in
Nevertheless, it Is equally true that a
turn for th'a better In the financial busi
ness situation is bound to come after so
prolonged and violent a, period of reac
tion and that when It comes it will be
preceded by certain familiar "weather"
signs, which always, in our financial ex
perience, have Indicated i?s coming. How
ionjr the recovery will last depends on
We have yet to discover what real
improvement In the congested credit sit
uation has accompanied or will follow last
week's action on the bank rates; ve, have
yet to learn to what extent the Industrial
problem will be solved by read.lustmeat
of production costs to selling prices and
the political problem by Germany's ac
tion on the reparations. There are poten
tial difficulties in, the way if uniterrupted
progress in either matter.
Nevertheless, if both are even provision
ally settled, it will at any rate be pos
slBTe for our own couptry and the rest of
the world to besin the work of economic
reconstruction on a more practicable ba
ste than has been possible at any tirtio
since the war ended.
Progress of the Crops.
Weekly Crop Bulletin of the Omaha
Chamber of Commerce.
The cool showery weather noted In the
Missouri valley, at the close of the last
week moved slowly eastward, reaching the
Ohio valley by Tuesday. The heavy rain
fall wae along the Mississippi river, re
suiting ii floods in. eastern Arkansas,
where the soil was saturated from rain o
the previous week. The cold wave with
frosts following the rain did further dam
age to fruits in the Lake Michigan district
on the east and Idaho and Utajt on the
west. But the temperatures were not
low enough to Injure grain crops, though
stations tn northern North Dakota and
Minnesota report 10 to 12 degrees of froat
on May 2. There were heavy local rains
in the western states. In connection with
the general rain reported east, althongn
they are not charted by the weather serv
ice. A large area of central Nebraska had
more than an inch of precipitation, while
Colorado reports "Too wet for plowing 1" 7
Wheat made good progress in all dis
tricts, except the extreme southern. ' In
Georgia, Arkansas and Oklahoma, where
the wheat la. heading, more rust is re
ported, and in 'Missouri and Southern
Illinois excessive rain and cool weather
have been unfavorable. Central Nebraska,
western Kansas and eastern Colorado show
great Improvement from increased mois
ture. Co-n planting progressed rapidly the
latter part of last week under the most
favorable conditions of sunshine and.
moisture. Fields In tho territory south of
the Platte river latitude have been reedy
for the planter for some time, and al
though the soli is cold from temperature
averaging 6 to 10 degrees below normal,
there Is probably more, than the average
acreage of corn planted for the first week
of May. Alt southern states have trouble
with the stand of corn and cotton, except
on the Atlantic coast plain, where condi
tions continued favorable. Little farm
work has been done tn the lower Missis
sippi valley for some time, because of ex
cessive rainfall, and with cool weather at
the same time both corn and cotton have
germinated badly. Replanting is slow and
difficult under existing conditions. The
middle south reports more fvaorably. and
even.the fruit crop In the hill country of
Georgia and through east Tennessee and
Kentucky Is better than expected. Georgia
pertjhes are ripening In the south, with a
good crop reported.
Continued favorable conditions are re
ported from the far east. New England
a4ul New York state are about on a nor
mal basis, while the country about Chesa
peake bay and the Virginia coast is two
to three weeks early, with ncsrly all in
terests In good shape.
The northern tier of states have bad
cool weather, and around the lakes and
upper Mississippi valley abundance of ralq.
This is favorable for the germination of
small gralna and starting meadows and
pastures. The fruit prospect of that Im
portant district has not been Injured a
much as at first reported. The frcesing
weather during the past two weeks, which
hss done much damsge in the Rocky
Mountain valleys, did not reach the north
east. The Paclflo noeihwest has had rain and
low temperatures, while the reverse was
true of the California coast, where some
damage resulted to rrops from jscesslve
heat. No Improvement is shown In the
drought district" of the southwest, and
stock losses continue to be reporeed from
southern New Mexico and bordering terrl.
tory. The northern ranges give better re
ports, and although sheep shearing Ins
been interfered with by tho cold a large i r
production of lambs and calves Is r-imported.

A year hns elapsed since, the economic
readjustment began to gather momentum,
and the process is yet to be completed.
Forces of rehabilitation are now operative,
however, and the general outlook is bet
ter. Gains are not easily achieved and
none at all appear In some quarters, but
tho price and wage revisions snd the
easing In money are factors making for
further improvement in conditions. The
strengthening of sentiment, upon which
business recuperation so largoly depends,
has continued, and confidence In a grad
ual revival of activities finds more fre
quent expression. Recovery has come
first in those trades and Industries which
were the first to react from the boom
of the war years and afterward, and
in Isolated instances enough new de
mand hss developed to bring a rally In
prioes. That suoh a phase remains the
exception Is demonstrated by the contin
ued excess of declines In Dun's list of
wnoiesaie quotations and by the fall In
t,he index number to the lowest point
reached in several years. The buying dis
position and the buying power are not
yet such as to effeet a return to sellers'
markets, although there U a tendency
t hold prices firmer in some quarters aft
er many months of steady yielding. A
Protracted period of restricted purchase
lng by distributors has resulted In de
pleted stocks of goods in not a few cases,
but consumptive requirements have also
diminished and nearly al! orders that flow
munuraciurers are 01 moderate size
and mainly for Jlling-in purposes. The
fact that such transactions are increasing
ly numerous, nowever, la encouraging, and
present prospects, despite unseasonable
weather, labor troubles and other draw
backs, are ut brighter promise.
Liabilities of Failures Smaller.
Reversing the tendency of the two Im
mediately preedin? months, commercial
failures during April increased in num
ber and decreased in amount of liabili
ties. The decline in the latter was greater
than the rise 1 number, the indebtdness
falling 42.8 per cent and the number of
defaults being augmented by 11.3 per
cent.' Moreover, the average of liabilities
was only about one-half of that of March,
when the sum of nwmey involved reached
a new high monthly record. The con
tract In-April Indebtedness is largely ex
plained by the fewty Insolvencies of unu
sual size, there being 64 failures for
$100,000 or more In each instance, aggre
gating $21,000,000 altogether. These fig
ures mark a reduction of 17 in number
and 30,060.000 In amount from the March'
totals, and are also less than those of
February and January. All defaults con
sidered, relatively the best exhibit is
made by agents, brokers and similar con
cerns, which report the same number of
Insolvencies as in Jiarch, but a decrease
of 71 per cent in liabilities.
Deflation of Trices.
After 12 consecutive months of yield
ing, Dun's Index number of wholesale
commodity quotations Is now at the low
est level touched since the beginning of
November, 1918. From the high record
fissure of $263,332 of May 1, last year,
the compilation has fallen steadily 10
$166,658, or 36.7 per cent, and last month's
decline reached 4.4 per cent. This com
nres with a recession of 4.1 per cent in
March and one of 2.1 per cent in i-v.iru-ai.
but is loss pronounced than lhaf
which occurred in January, December and
last November. Indications have not been
lacking of late that the deflation of some
markets Is approaching tho point of cul
mination, and price recovery has already
rone some little way in the high trade.
which was one of the first lines to ex
perience reaction from the wartime ba
sis, The movement as a whole, however,
docs not suggest that the readjustment
has yet been completed, and wage re
dactions are regarded as a forerunner of
further downward price revisions in some
Confidence In Dry tioods.
With each succeeding week, confidence
In the future of dry goods markets in
creases. The wage reductions in the steel
industry and elsewhere are regarded as
foreshadowing steadier employment later
on, and the well-defined trend toward re
laxation f monetary stringency is a hope
ful augury. Respecting immediate busi
ness, It is reported that jobbing dis
tribution is of greater volume', yardage
considered, than that of a year ago, and
the rate of cotton goods mill curtailment
has slackened. While buying is still
mainly In small lots, there is a belief
that forward requirements will before long
be anticipated more freely, and the re
sistance of variobs goods to further price
revisions Is accepted as an Indication that
manufacturers have gone about to their
limit on concessions. Comparisons of cur
rent quotations with those of a month
ago disclose additional yielding, but the
present situation clearly reflects a greater
measure of stability.
Recovery In Hides Extended.
Unless Indications are misleading, the
i-ecent Improvement in the hide trade and
allied lines Is something more than a
flurry. The gain in hide business has
been progressive. with some sizable
transacrtons effected, and the market has
strengthened appreciably. Calfskins have
been the leader In point of activity And
buoyancy, tanners' operations cleaning un
most of the available supplies in Chi
cago and other Important centers, and
prices have risen rather' sharply. While
higher quotations hav checked demand
for packer hides, there is mere Interest
In domestic country stock, and further
liberal sales of Argentine hides have been
made to Ufrtted States and Kuropean buy
ers. The betterment in upper leather con
ditions remains a feature In that quarter,
and trading In about all kinds of shoes Is
gradually expanding. In men's footwear,

Not Fear Germany
Cost of Teuton Production
Lowered by Currency In
ture May Collapse.
Charles M. Schwab, Henry K.
Seliwarz and ot'tcrs w:io have re
cently visited Germany, have spoken
since their return to the United
States of the industrial activity
which seems to them to have per
meated the German wage earners.
They also have spoken in words ot
warning of the danger which Ger
man competition is now establishing
with certain commodities in the mar
kets of the world and particularly
our own domestic markets. These
are facts vhich have been gathered
by men competent to make observa
tion. It remained, however, ffir the
Secretary of Commerce Hooker, to
explain why it is possible for Ger
man industry to gain such efficiency
and secure such low cost of produc
tion. It remained, however, for
market steel in England at a price
far below that which English steel
manufacturers 'must ask and why
Germany is pulling pneumatic tools
in the automobile manufacturing cen
ters of the United States in success
ful competition with the American
manufacturers of these articles.
Germans ran Vmlersell.
Mr. Hoover does not disagree with Mr.
Schwab and the others so far as the
facts are concerned. He admits that these
facts havo beea accurately stated but
he does more than Mr. Schwab and the
others have done. They referred to tho
low wages, to tho efficiency, to the spirit
of sacrifice and to the practice of economy
which now characterize the German work-Innmen.-
Mr. Hoover goes farther. In
his testimony before the ways and means
committee of tho house of representatives
he Btated that the department of com
merce has already investigated the coat of
production in Germany and has discover
ed why this cost has been reduced to sueli
an extent as to mako it possible for Ger
man industry already to undersell other
nations with some of their products.
The German government, Mr. Hoover
has discovered, is subsidizing production
of all kinds snd is maintaining fictitious
low prices by currency tnflaton. He es
timates that about 80,000,000.000 marks,
are In this subsidy so that the govern -
j ment is really paying much of the lossts
in an lines or lnuustry.
Cannot be Continued.
This Is a policy which In Mr. Hoover's
view cannot be long continued without
causing complete collapse of the finan
cial structure of Germany. The inference
Is reasonable that Mr. Hoover believes
that this artificial, arbitrary and expan
sive policy which Germany has adopted
may for a time enable the products of
German Industry to command outside mar
kets, but this cannot be continued for a
long time. Therefore, American Industry
may reasonbly count upon some collapse
in the Industrial methods which Germany
now has adopted and if this view be
correct then In the course of time our own
Industries need have no fear of German
It Is characteristic of Mr. Hoover thst
he is always able to suggest remedies for
industrial, commercial or financial trou
bles. He did not vary from that In his
testimony before the ways and means
committee. He would have commodities
which are received from other countries
valued according to American standards
and when valuation ot this kind Is made
then there will follow duties which will
be to a great extent protective.
Holding Directors Responsible.
The modern tendency in our courts is
setting strongly towards the holding of
directors, and especially nonaotlve direc
tors, responsible for losses or for the
bankruptcies of corporations with which
directors have been associated. It was
this tendency. undouDteuiy wnicn iru
some of the directors of the New Haven
Railroad company to make agreement to
pay a large sum of money rather than to
defend suits which were brought esalpst
them by stockholders In this Company.
It Is the understanding her that the
stockholders In a far western railroad
company who have lost control of their
property are preparing to bring suita
gainst individual directors of the corpora
tion which gained control of this railroal
This tendency has been recently demon
si! ated by a decision of the supreme couit
of IilhsofS. A banking institution in Chl
rago was ruined by some of its officer?.
Suit was brought against the directors ef
the bank. Including the directors who had
teken no active part in the management
of the bank. The supreme court decides
tnat It is vital to the success of an insti
tution that flfrectors really direct, and it
is lijs'ely to be fatal to the management ot
an institution If there be non-active di
rectors upon the board. In other words,
