In addition, the statement ahows that the gold reserve fund of 1150,000.000 is made up of $ 50,000,000 in gold coin and 1100,000,000 in gold bullion.

According to re ports business is quite active in the Dominion and money in the Eastern centres is earning 6 and 6 on good col' lateral. It is said that bank circulation in Canada is about 6tk larger than it was a year ago at this time. It would not be surprising therefore, if this difference continues in the two money markets, that gold may D. shipped across the border before the end of the month. The most striking feature in the international money market at this time is the firmness displayed in London open market discounts. Quotations there are now above As a consequence, foreign exchange here has startci to move up again. OUR LONDON CABLES.

NATIONAL MONETARY COMMISSION, Wtotern Banker Expect a Meeting Will be Held This Spring in Denver. Denver According to letters received by Denver banking and commercial interests, the National Monetary Commission will hold a aeaaion in Denver this spring. Thomas F. Dawson, assistant secretary of the commis sion, was in Denver recently and conferred with many leading business men regarding the sentiment in the West toward the work of the commission. A speech delivered here a short time ago by Gordon Jones, president of the United States National Bank, attracted considerable at tention in eastern financial circles, and it is believed to have been responsible largely for the desire of the commission to meet here. MONEY IX THE WEST. Country Correepondenl Calling for More Currency to Carry Grain Butinete Slow. Chisago Local 'money market was easy with high- grade commercial paper going as low as SVs. Demand for money from the country is improving, and is expected to help out the local market. President Reynolds of the Continental A Commercial says: We are beginning to hnd a aemana irom our country correspondents in order to carry grain loans. The average western fanner does not like to sell his pro dues at a low price, and is a believer that higher prices must come if he will hold on. In consequence there is a considerable volume of money needed to hold western grain for higher prices. There is no suggestion of speculation or that borrowing is due to inflation of any char acter in the western country. In fact, it is something of a relief to us to have our correspondents find use for some of the funds they have been placing with us. General i business rules rather slow and the demand from the pub - lie for accommodation is in consequence not large. Still I think we are about through buying commercial paper at the low rates quoted." k Domestic Exchange.

Kent, vice-president of the Bankers Trust Co. and chairman of the sub-committee, issued a statement after the meeting which said in part: "The meeting was called for the purpose of putting in motion plans which would make it possible to handle tne omiQg cotton crop without friction and alone lines satisfactory to shippers, railroads, steamship companies, American and foreign banking interests and cotton buyers. "A resolution was nassed eiDrexslncr annroval of the formation of a central office in New York city, to which all advices of bills of ladinfr limed are to be sent, nrc vided such an office can be established along satisfactory lines. A committee wss appointed for the vurooae of out lining a system, under which such an office could be es tablished, consisting of representatives from the cotton carrying lines, the Liverpool Bills of Lading Conference, and the Bankers' Committee. "It is confidently hoped thst a way has been found to properly ssfeguard bills of lading issued for cotton, and make their acceptance by financial interests, both here and abroad, justifiable." DENVER RESERVOIR IRRIGATION CO. Enlargement of Barr Lake SeeetAtate Changing Court of the Burlington Track. Denver Upon the petition of Joseph Standley, re ceiver for the Denver Reservoir Irrigation Co., Judge Allen, of the District Court, entered an order making pos sible the immediate enlargement of Barr lake, one of the principal impounding stations of the system. In order to proceed with the proposed enlargement it will be necessary to change the course of the Burlington tracks for a distance of several hundred feet. An agreement has been entered into between the receiver and the railroad company whereby the latter is to remove its tracks. Rip-rapping, grading and other work of like character will be done by the Oasis Water Supply, Park A Improvement Co., a subsidiary of the Denver Reservoir Irrigation Co. PRESIDENT MI DGE'S VIEW OF RATES Made to Yield Only a Fixed Return, Would Turn Invettor From Stock to Bonds Retult. In an address before the Topeka Commercial Club Wednesday, H. U. Mudge, president of the Rock Island, said that the new theory that even rates that are uniform and fair in themselves ought to be reduced to yield only a fixed return on the physical value of the property, would take railroad stocks out of the field of speculation aqd turn investment to bonds instead of stock. "If the return is to be limited," said Mr. Mudge, "the investor will Insist upon some security, and we shall be dependent entirely upon borrowed money for our improvements, with the result that our fixed charges will increase very fast, and finally there will come a time when we cannot meet them."

There is another drop in the reserve to 48.56. which brings the figure below that of last year, while it compares with a ten-year average of 47.70. The reduction is not very serious, especially at this time of year, but the movement is worth watching, and would have considerable significance if continued. Changes in the particular items of the return are unimportant, with the exception of the loss of bullion and the corresponding drop in reserve. The bank has now lost 3,500,000 in two weeks, and this accounts for the general poverty of the showing. The outward movement of bullion was decidedly unexpected, but it ia worth noting that the bank's holdings are still 1,700,000 above what they were at this time last year. The reduction of nearly 2,000,000 m public deposits indicates Government disbursements, in all probability. Private deposits tend to decrease faster than loans, but the items in each case are not very large. It need hardly be said that the bank rate remains unchanged at 3. With the present tendency of money this seems likely to represent the low point of the money market for the spring and summer. A 3 rate is, not extortionate, snd it may be taken for granted thst the joint-stock bsnks will co-operate with the Bank of England in making it effective as long as possible. DEATH OF RORERT GOODHODY OF THE STOCK EXCHANGE. Educated in Trinity College, Dublin, Came to 'ew York in 18S5 Membership Dates From 1891 Student in Economics and History. Robert Goodbody of Robert Goodbody A Co., 80 Broad way, and a member of the New York Stock Exchange, died early yesterday afternoon at Haledon, near Paterson, N. J. By the death of Robert Goodbody, in his sixty-first year, the Stock Exchange loses one of its most distinguished members. He had a wide circle of friends both here and in his native country, Ireland, and in Eng land, and was warmly esteemed alike for his high personal character and his fine abilities. Robert Goodbody was that unusual, combination, an Irishman and a Quaker. He combined the good qualities of both in a way to win the affectionate amusement of his friends, to whom his engaging personal characteristics greatly endeared him. He was a profound student of economics and, outside of the universities, probably the finest historical scholar in America. He was a Master of Arte of Trinity College, Dublin, where he took a high place, gaining the gold medal in mathematics. He passed the qualifying examinations for a solicitor, but preferred to join the Dublin Stock Exchange, founding the firm of Goodbody & Webb. He came to New York in 1885, where he established the firm of Goodbody, Glyn A Dow; and, after naturalizing, in 1890, became a member of the Stock Exchange himself. His membership dates from April 16, 1891, when he formed the present firm of Robert Goodbody A Co. He was a Cleveland Democrat here and a Whig of the Cobdcn type in England. His political influence in Paterson, New Jersey, wss considerable, in view of the high respect his neighbors entertained for his personal qualities, and his part interest in the Peterson Guardian. His illness really dated from an attack in 1909, largely of a nervous character, and a return of the malady with complications resulted in his death. He is survived by his wife, whom he married in 1885, and ten children. He was a member of the University Club, Dublin; the Whist Club, New York; th Hamilton Club, Paterson, N. J.; the North Jersey Country Club, the "New" Areola Country Club, and the Reform Club, London, and a member of the New York Chamber of Commerce. Lighterage Vane Before Commerce Court.
