THE TOLA DAILY REGISTER, MONDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 11,1911. BJISIG CiJNDIflONS ARE SOUND VOI.IME OF THADE LESS THAN LAST YEAK KIT NOT RMK Mr. flfws Thiiik -i That All (he Sl:?iiti I 'oitit to an la .i|ir<Mcnicitt in Xew York, Doo. ;•.—For (lie time bc- ini? the :-i r.tiin. lit of n'le Street has tiirneil lji';uis'j ami laicy^ generally l:ave Vfcciicd largely due to recent extensive iirofii-takinp and bear at- taeks.

The money situation attracts more attention with ajiproach of the year- .nd. Short-date money is firmer i liere, and in London rates are ad• nntin!.'. Kiimors of an advance 111 tiio bank rate are in circulation, but at present these are premature. January disbursements will aggreRate over $220 0 (in,(tOO. Hank reserves have fallen below the legal requirements, but this causes no uneasinesi? because of ovir lar.ue credits abroad, and the fact that rur:ency will return freely from the interior after t!ie middle of .laiiuary. A temporary stiffening of rali-s incidental to preparation for interest and divided i)ayments of .Ian- nary first need cause no surprise. Investment di'!iiand .«i will lie pretty sure III improve early in the new year.

There Is a shrinkage In the value of cotton of abou $100,000,000. but even at current lo -sr prices the crip will yield a return to the planters much i alrtue the average, so that the South should experience a good year In spite of low prices. There was also a shrink' age in the value of animals and an-: nnal products of $325,000,000. There Is continued activity In the irou trade which, as stated some weeks ago in' these advices, has turned a corner for the better. The demand has been so insistent. for railroad equipment that firmer prices are, aiready in sight. Much larger sales of pig Iron are reported. In the foreign situation there Is no change. Minor signs of friction between Euioiiean governments are still apparent, but the situation over there is much more satisfactory than^lhree months ago when the .Moroccan com- pilcalion imposed such a serious strain In financial circles-. Foreign finatictal markets have siiown some disapiioinlment at the President's mes sage on trusts and the disposition of fongreii^ to keep up its attacks on caii ital, but Kurope is very often apt to take sucli affairs more .seriou."'ly than they are considered hcri' at home.
