Advantages of the London Stock Ec changc Coming Over This Investments in Other on tho United States of the Great Increase of A Mortgage Buying Company EW YOEIK Jan need have any fear that England is buying up all America or is putting a big mortgage on the country Uenuino invesments of foreign capital which are intrinsically enormous have been made in this country during the past eighteen mouths but in comparison with the business of tho nation the total amount represented is almost insignificant The sum of English capital placed in the United States within that period may reach 3300000000 which represents amaximum earning poiver of 820000000 big sumt but small compared with the income of even a single big town iu this country The first big venture of English capital among American industries was in the summer of 1888 when tho New York Brewery company was formed for tho purchase of several bresvcries in New York und New Jersey Gobljlctl anil Bloru Wanted The project was spread before tho London public and there was an astonishing rush for securities Tho public subscriptions amounted to nearly eight times tho amount offered and tho shares were dis tributed pro rata among the subscribers From this point tho business grew with amazing rapidity Tho Messrs Untermeyer have acted as American agents for tho plac ing of more than So2000000 of English capi tal in this country and they now have deals on hand approaching consummation amounting to many millions more The in vebtments of English capital in the imme diate vicinity of New York within tho past eiighteen months amounts to and arc all in breweries The 3Ioiiey of Small Investora Samuel Untermeyer in explaining the workings of tho great system which has sprung up in London for tho purpose of sc ouring American investments said that the money had come from small investors and not from capitalists Mr Untermeyer thinks tliatpublic opinion in this country is nearly ripe for the floating of industrial enterprises upon tho samo plan which has proved popular in England Tho chief difficulty is tho absence of all safe guards in tho lino of financial institutions especially designed for such purposes The strict rules of the London stock exchange are an especial advantage in this direction All ot the American enterprises sold to English investors which Mr Untermoyer represents juo listed upon the London stock exchange the rules of which require not only a com plete statement o E resources but a full dis closure of every contract and asset of a cor poration seeking admittance No such or ganization as the trusts now dealt in on tho Now York stock exchange would be admitted to the London board Irospects for Uic Iresciiit Regarding the prospects of a further influx of English capital Mr Untermeyer says Within the past four weeks there has been renewed activity in tho investment in Amer ican industrial enterprises and there is every reason to believe that the new year will see a fur greater amount of capita I introduced into this country from abroad than was brought hero in There has been invested in in dustrial enterprises in tho United States since August 1SSS when I made the first issue of American securities more than 1300000 but during the same period more than JOOCCO000 has been subscribed in Lon don for other countries including the Argen tine republic Chili Peru South Africa the Transvaal and New South Wales so that the investment of capital in this country repre sents scarcely more than 10 per cent of Eng lands output last year I do not include ia my estimate millions that have gono into mining and land speculation Thinks It Good for Uncle Sam I bclievo this great influx of foreign capi tal will greatly assist the development of our industries The United States is not a rich country It is too young to have be come rich and it is so vast that it can properly employ all tho capital that can be diverted to it The small amount of profit thatgoes to England from industrial enter prises in tho shape of dividends upon tho business is trifling compared with the amount of money that the Englishmen must spend here especially in the employment of labor to earn that dividend Tho man who has a business hero mid sells to an English company employs his capital in a now direc tion ami creates a new demand for labor while thu English companies which succeed to tho business must continue to employ tho labor before engaged One Hundred Millions Within tho past four months companies have been formed in London for the pur pose of investing ia industrial enterprises in America with an aggregate capital of not less than The last company of that kind recently formed is n corporation known as tho Law Debenture Corporation for the purpose of acquiring mortgages on industrial enterprises It has a capital of The trustees for the debenture holders are such men as the present attorney general of England Sir Richard E Web ster Sir Charles Russell and the Law Guar antee and Trust society while the board of directors embraces members from all of the leading law firms iu London The people who formed the company are such men as the duke of Wellington the earls of Win chelsea and Nottingham the marquis of Abergavenny and a host of others known to everybody hi England Wholesale ana Fatal Poisoning BROWSDALE Minn Jan 6A party of sixty

Saturday night charged with victlmizijig passengws on trains by card games THE CANTEEN SYSTEM An Apparently Good Thing That Our Army Post Traders Dont lake WASHINGTON CITY Jan recent introduction ot the canteen system into the army and the announcemsut that the post traders whose calling is thereby en dangered and in some instances superseded are about to make common cause before con gress has called public attention to a sub ject that is fraught with the highest import ance to the array So little is known how ever to the uninitiated and so little mean ing is conveyed by the term canteen to the nonmilitary mind that the following statement from Adjt Gen Kelton concern ing the system will be of interest Gen Kolton says Tho canteen system of the British army is now regarded as among the most potent factors of its admin istration On its present basis it is in effect the cooperative store of the regiment There is a wet canteen and a dry canteen The former is practically the club room and is fitted up with a library and reading room a room for games and others for re freshments forp all which privileges the soldier pays a monthly subscription of 2 pence The bill of fare is of large variety and the charges exceedingly low a cup of coffee penny 1 penny for tea cocoa or chocolate or a boiled egg a pint of soup or a herring for 2 pence ho may receive a plate of ham and egg or liver or liver and bacon If he desires to purchase in larger quantities ho may procure cooked bacon for 10 pence a pound ham for a shilling and 3 pence and sausage for eight pence The Dry and Management The dry canteen is the same as the post traders store in our service but where all articles of general merchandise are sold at rates slightly exceeding the cost These are managed by a committee of officers and non commissioned officers under the supervision of tho commandant there is a treasurer an accountant and a steward Everything is sold for cash and tho money is lodged daily In bank the amount of profits averaging some a year to each regiment Of the profits every penny goes for tho benefit of the soldier in supplying extra dinners pa pers and games for the clubroom prizes for the regimental sports dishes for the in short the canteen is among tho most im portant features of garrison life in Europe In the French and German armies the sys tem is not so thorough as in England but in all the cooperative features is permanent and all aro under military supervision A Good Thing lor the Solilicr Practically this is theicanteen system which is now being introduced into our army and which may ultimately supersede the posttrader system not because tho lat ter is a special mark for disapproval but be cause the canteen is for the greater benefit ot the soldier and because tho two systems are irreconciable THE WORK OF AN OLD BRUTE Shameful Facts Brought Out at a Coro ners Inquest in Ontario PJSTEEBORO Out Jan A terrible tale of brutality was brought to light at the in quest

Cash for Ev Debts They Deal with Merchants and Success of the Scheme That May Clir cumveut the Managers of tensive Programme of Political Action Potent Force if It Works CHICAGO Jan Herald Grand Rapids Mich special has the following with reference to the progress of the Patrons of Industry in that state The Patrols of Industry have captured Michigan The wealth producers of the state hare risen as if in a night and laid a controll ing hand on th5 commerce of a common wealth Farmers mechanics laborers pro fessional classes save merchants manufacturers and joined hands to dictate tie selling price of product the buying price of merchandise From a beginning of three men years ago the j order of Patrons of Industry has grown un til today its ranks enroll 100000 men iu Michigan alone with an average monthly increase of membership amounting to an even 1200 The base of this formidabis structure is the farmer element but so shrewdly nave they builded that their entire wall seems cohesive strong and enduring although their lodges have invaded the rowus and received into membership thou sands of men who make a living by the marketing of their labor Hlust NYit Contract Debt They abolish credit No no F I as they are familiarly con tract one single dollars worth of debt out side the order Ho cannot go in debt at the mill or the market His name can adorn the iedger of no merchant He must pay rromptly his employes and pay them in cash Hci can owo no man Each member has run tho gantlet of a careful inspection If his credit be good that is ih his favor But credit is only good when yon dont use it say the fathers of this new philosophy The mans actual wealth above all liabilities is carefully computed and that excess is in his favor But if he be no more thsn a laborer owning his boots and nothing further he is still eligible if he have a reputation for in dustry honesty and sobriety No Weekly Subsistence Kills The mechanic who wishes to become u member of the patrons and who has hereto fore run a bill each week to be settled pay day must first accumulate that weeks ex penditure in advance and pay only cash for his necessaries Hes always a week behind and some day lie will die and then the man who trusted him is robbed or if he lives he is always a slave Tims reasons the rustic Ph Ds It sometimes occurs that a man ill the order simply has to raise a sum of ready money If he have property and can raise it on mortgage furnishing ample security the thing can be arranged If be be a sufficiently valuable man the brethren may rally to help him out even though he can givo them no assurance beyond personal honor that ho will repay the debt but in n largo majority of fact almost ia is tho unpardonable sin Contracts With Merchants In nearly every town in tho southern penin sula whether the remote hamlet having two stores or the bustling county seat with hun dreds tho Patrons of Industry have selected their merchant and with him have made a contract to furnish goods at 10 per cent ad vance on tho cost price In some few local ities they are reported not to have succeeded quite ro well as this in which case they make tho best contract they can but refuse to guarantee any stated amount of patronage and the members who choose may go to a larger town where the jir cent contract obtains Here they mass all their trade on the one merchant who has struck a bargain with their contracting committee buy of him every article that is bought at all pay him spot cash and out as independent as a lino of kings Efow It in In Kalamazoo the merchants who suffered by this application of the cash principle iu btisiness undertook to swamp tho rival whom tho patrons had favored and put down their goods lower than his own But that couldnt last In consideration of his selling to them at the 10 per cent advance ttis man had received tho guarantee of n certain volume of trade With tho certain ty that every dime of it was as good as cash since it was cash and with the belief that he could live on the profit obtained there from he let his rivals writhe They might coquette with custom as much as they liked The patrons stood by their contract whether they liked it or not Helping the Farmer Hold Hid Croi But there is more iu the movement of the Patrons of Industry than the simple pur chase or their goods at a reduced price As they advance in age and number they will gather a greater financial strength The lodge treasuries will be munitions of war for the members The man who has produce to sell for which no adequate price is offered need not be compelled to market it until such time as he can market it at a profit To the extent of his garnered crop he will be entitled to such advance in cash from the treasury heaped by mutual labors as will tide him over the dark days and bring him to a season when prices hare felt the effect of a limited supply and will rise to a legiti mate figure The Political Feature Every law that sets the rich man above the poor wan must bo wiped out says a leading organizer at Grand Rapids Every statute which makes capital a master and labor a slave must be expurgated Every decision bought and sustained in defiance of Justice and right must be reversed I shall live to see the day when there will be an ab solute unlimited free coinage of gold and silver to see the last national bank go out of existence and the last govern ment bond bought and destroyed 1 shall live to see a national currency as good as the nation is strong and honorable to gether with gold and silver certificates and gold and silver coin the only money in this land and to see the time when no man can get a corner on any metal to reap a fortune out of prostituted legislation We need more money The volume con be
