.-1. PET BOT SOUND JAUUABT VITIDEUDS WItL EX CEED 2M XILLION D0LEAB8. Bat It Is Xot ExpccU^ That Mich ot Tbh Mill Be B».ln., N«« York, Dec. 23.—Holiday quhst .oviribaipwi the stock market. This la the^ period for closing accounta, stock taUng and other operations Incidental .to the close oC the year Aalde from activities connected -with the holiday trade It Is apt to be one of the dullest periods of the year. In the stock market proi>er it is usually a time vhen every effort is made to anticipate the effect of January dis- banements. This year these are es- tiinihted at over 1220 000,000. The question arises will the usual propQC- tlOA of this sum come into Wall Street for permanent investment? Thert ti aope reason to expect that It will not. The main reason is the high cos^'-of IlTing for all classes. \\'bether this be due to high prices, to extravagance or to higher standards of living matters little. People are certftlnly' saving less, and as all new capital must come from the nation's savings ft follows tliit there will be a smaller proportion applicable for investment purposes than usual. Another ele- meot in the business situation is that the high cost of living comi>els investors to seek and Insist ujwn the largest returns possible on investments. The; same tendency towards better returns arises from another rection—namely, that a reduction in tfie supply of new capital will oblige those who want it to i>ay higher rates. In short, as a result of existing conditions, capital is going to command better wages just as labor has alreadj- succeeded in doing. What the effect of this will be upon the financial situation remains to be reen. It is well known that our large corporations have special needs for new capital next year and lo find buyers It is evident that they will either have to place them at coniparat.vely low prices or else pay somewhat better rates of interest. In all probability the present year will be a record- breaking one In the Issue of new .securities owing to the exceptionally hea^T outi)ut during the first half of the year. During the tnsi six month.s the issues have been held back IM'- vause of ailverse conditions. Should the inveMmenl outlonk luromn more favorable. It Is quite Ilki'Iy th/u ihoro will be a flood of new offt'rinf;!!. TIIP reiiulrements of our railrnnd systems to oieet the pressing demiitMl f<ir better terminal facilities In bur great -Cities are sure to be cxceptltmally heavy. Doubtless there Is an abundance of capital awaiting investment particularly if confidence becomes more firmly established, but between the necessity of raising much new capital and the insistence of investors upon profitable returns it is a problem whether there Is much chance for any prolonged rise In values. Should the market be pushed much higher it would materially check this demand. General business is quiet. Conditions, however appear sound. There is not so much complaint about the volume of business as> about profits. - In the interior a rather more cheerful tone prevails and bankers at the West anticipate a moderate, but not verj- SKATING RINK Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday Evenings at 7 o'clock, and Saturday afternoon. Etrnluft lOr Skiitcs lie Afternoons fic Skates lOe THE lOlA PAILY REGISTEI^ TUESDAY EVENING. DECEMBER 26, 1911 trade reflects this condition and con- mand for American steel products still continuing a marked feature. Our own iron trade continues active and there are no signs of abatement. Big oi^rs for rails are coming In, and our car shops are overcrowded with orders. Prices are slightly firmer and about SOTc of the total capacity is fully employed. Those best Informed predict continued improvement in the Iron trade, the railroads from sheer necessity being hea\-y buyers. ' Concerning the Immediate future of the market, we would advise caution. In the^ active stocks there has now been an average rise since the low point of last September of about 10 points and considerably more in a number of the specialties. During the week there have been signs of realizing, must not be overloote- ed that stocks have been passing from strong into weaker hands. Facts of some significance regarding the own- iership of our principal railroads and industrials have been published this week. They showed that 234 railroad and industrial concerns with a combined capital of $10.7000.000 000 were owned by about 980.000 stockholders, their average holdings being about 109 shares. The significant feature of this .'Statement, however was that on an inc-pa!:e of only l\i'^'c in capital re- j)orted there was an increase of 7'^ in the number of stockholders. This rap!:l increase in the pcrcentaige of owners compared with the small per- centa.'ip of increase in capital sug- •.jp-ff a. wider distribution of s-ecurl- amt ng the public than has Ijeen pen'ra'.'y supposed. In !-ot:ie respects it is desirable that tl ;e;e holdings be more widely scatiored but the stock market is apt t« t ;ikc the view that speculative investments are piissitiK into weaker hands. HfC.VRY CLKWS. pronounced improvement. U must be remembered that last year was not a season of big crops. On the contrary, the total jield was slightly below the average. There was one striking exception. The South produced a crop of cotton far beyond expectations and much too large for current requirements. Some authorities estimate the yield at fully 2,000,000 bales more than can be possibly consumed. The result is an abnormally low price for cotton. Of course, there will be a sharp curUilment in acreage during the coming spring, and the cotton left over must be carried either by the erower, manufacturer or speculator to"make good any possible deficiency next ivear. The low price of cotton is naturally a serious disappointment to the South. The losses from this cause however, are evidently being exaggerated and according to the report of the Department of Agriculture will not aggregate much over $l.=i0.- 000,000 compared with last year. That crop, however, was a record one In value, and this year's crop In value will probably be much above the aver age. So all stories of southern losses and cotirpc;''.*'"t agitations should be received with fonesponding reserve. The money situation Is reasonably satlsfactor)-. Some slight stringency 'Tjiay develop towards the close of the year but this .will be only lemporarj-. Funds will very soon be coming back more freely from the Interior and con siderable American money is still' era- ployed In Europe, where It can be recalled when necesary. The situation abroad Is generally satiafaclory. Trade is more activ* in both England and Germany and this in time should help the United States.
