ETTER OP CLEWS
I THE MERGER DECISION CAUSES
CHANGE IN RAILROAD DEALS.
Money Market Continue steaay.
Russians Trying. Paris and Japan
London for .War Loan The
Market In Better Condition.
Special to tlio Art! in Orel to.
Now York. April 2. ono effect of the
merger declalon h beu to remove
the lineertatnl which held In check
a number of important railroad deals.
Now that competing road iHiiiiot be
put under control of a holding com-
pany other means are being onght
for railroad development for restraint
cut-throat competition and for
lability In rate and earning. Tu
normi us growth of our railroad ny
terns has created rorcoa wnun tax
the Ingenuity of our ablest financiers
and lawyers to withstand; and nelf-
preservation Is simply driving the
great leadera Into some sort of co
operation which they naturally desire
to make an permanent as possible.
liiBt where Him line shall bo drawn be
tween tiM) much concentration una
too much competition Is the problem
now before the railroad maKiiates of
the West; and It Is Impossible for
ither Insiders or outsiders to antici
pate tho until outcome. Hiiltito it to
say tRat moves of Kreut Importance
aio now ueliiK made tin tho financial
h.sshoard tho ultimate outcome of
winch Is likely to bo beneficial to all
loiirertieil. Incident to Huso final
o'ljeciB (hero may be temporary dllf
ck ucch of opinion as well us trong
piny for position nnd mastery but all
Interests seem agreed Unit something
mtiht be done to conserve tho Interests
of both owners and user of railroads
who are alike benefited by stability
and reasonableness of rates sinoo
unrestricted competition has proved
injurious to all Interests and consoli
dation of competing lines has been di
;!rd to be against both tho Sherman
unii triist law and public Interest
some other device must be utilized
tomiiorarfly al least uii.ll n belter
one is secured. The commuiuly of
Intetest Idea lias consequently re
celve.l a fresh and powerful impetti
from the recent decision of the su
preme court and most of the noKotla
tlons now koIiik on seem to bo based
upon that plan. Olio thliiw Is unite
certain those who load In those
movements are not going to risk an
other such experience as the Northern
Pacific panic of 1001. Thoro Is for
innately little. If any probability of a
repetition of that memorable event
About all that can be said Is that e
ceedingly Important negotiations are
under way between those who con
tro! the various continental railroad
systems and that those parties arc
earnestly working to reach an under
stnnditiK. either by friendly means or
possibly throimh the courts but not
by a tonteht In buyliiK for control.
The money market continues easy
because buslllesH and speculative n
quirements are less urgent than for
merly. Neither the April settlements
nor the prospect of gold exports had
any appreciable olfoot upon rates
Some eonimonr was mode mvoii Iihuis
passing tho billion mark for the llrst
time and the prospect of diminished
bank reserves; but even these factors
created no uneasiness in banking cir-
cles lor the reason that the present
high record In li ans Is largely due to
the borrowings of strong corporation
who tliul It more advantageous to
-line necessary funds In this fashion
than to issue new security Issues
when values nre lw. lndon has
been more friendly to American
stocks; but no special foreign support
can bo counted upon until It Is known
that the war will bring forth. Hus-
sta has been sounding Paris. Japan
and London for war loans and the
terms do seem to havo boon satisfac-
tory. Very likely both countries will
have to meet bankers' views later on.
for war loans ate now a practical cer-
tainty. In the general situation tKore has
been little changgo from our previous
advices. Tho npproaefi of spring Is
causing more or less ro Ival of Indus-
trial activity ond lesiimptlon of busi-
ness. Hallrbads are also experiencing
tho benefit of thou' conditions and re
porting better earnings than ono or
two months ago. The outlook Is for
a fair spring trade especially whore
price adjustments have placed buel-
nen upon a solid basis. Wherever
high prices prevail there am slack-
noea and Inertia. Very soon the crop
outlook will lx n factor. Meanwhile
the slock market Is In n much more
satisfactory condition than In tunny
months ami the prospect are that
all reactions in the leading slmret
will be followed by good recoveries
and still higher prices.
