Pur-' lng the past few years there has been r considerable change in the grouping of the holdings. Baron Shaughnessy, president of the railroad company, has .on various occasions furnished (. The Monetary Times with figures 'showing In what countries the stock held and to what extent, and also .an analysis of the shareholders' list t as It stood on October 1st, 191G. This i'is compared with previous analyses :; in the above table. i 9.59% 10% 6% Jnne, IMS. 27,000 3,400 60% , 12.58% 10.42% 10% .-5% . by ,.

It must ,be borne In mind, in an-alyr.lng the figures that the capital  atock  of - the Canadian Pacific Rail-|iway has been�lricreas�d several times vduring .the .period under review as Mfpllows: In November. 1909, .' $30,000,000 of additional stock was . allotted at 125, the amount of^tock ^outstanding was $180,000,000. #That Would be the amount of stock' held by the 24,000 shareholders In January. 1911. A further block of $18,000,000 was allotted in January, 1912, at 150; ,$2,0*0,000 was sold during 1912 at a ^premium of $2,860,831.80; and $60,-jOOO.OOO was allotted at 175 In Janu gary, 1913 In . June, 1913, August. fp.916, and at the present time, therefore, the full Jf?60,0O0;0O0 of stock has ;&�*>> issued. su 1 ' V . /; In a little more than four yearB the ^number of;shareholders had Incre'as-. icd 24,468, or over 51 per cent.,'" Last' (iyear there, was. a small dee-rense In .the number. In the past few rears ;a remarltfblP cbange has occurred In the .'number of bolders. Where*? three years ago there were 27,000 holders of. the common stock, there were in 1915 40,468, an Increase of ) 3,468. or 49 per cent. Last year, the number dropped to 40,287, but. still a good record. These figures seem to indicate that the so-called small investor has been'.in the market during the past three years getting Canadian Pacific Railway'.stock, the large holdings having been sold to some extent and picked, up, by small investors. The increase in the number, of holders was probably made to,a Iftrge de. gree during the. latter part of 1915, by those who bad faith in the strength of the company; and the maintenance of the 10""per cent, dividend. This fnltb was rewarded,: The [lumber of Canadian holders "has Increased over Ifel per cent, in tbo last four years, "lend now standsi at 6,531. This is an excellent showing for * country which has done more" borrowing than investing. The numbers of holders in Great Britain in 1915: wa^ iarger.-tban .two years previously, bul smaller.than in 3911.' GreaT Britain probably sold td the United 8tates last year. The French and German holdings have dropped considerably.' The volume of shares held,;.by;'United'States Investors Is not very large.^oniy 10.39 per cent. In 1915, -ta frecord which' was beaten by Canada,' w,hiph .thtip held 13.64 per cent.' of tbe totau The United States total has been Increased moBt likely by purchases last year from GrefSrBrlttW. , I' The figures in regard to Germ�ny r,re of unusual Interest.
