CROWE Although figures for other American ports will not be available for some time, Clarence Matson, manager of the trade extension department of the Chamber of Commerce, la willing to predict that the harbor of Los Angeles will again rank second In the United States in total water commerce for the fiscal year ended June 30, last. For several years this harbor has held second position, ranking Just behind the port, of New York. There is some difference of opinion among the competitive porta on the method of calculating total water commerce, but Mr. Matson contends that the challengers of his position artifi cially swell total figures by the in clusion or traffic not strictly belonging to the port in Question. Some of the competitive ports, for illustration, include all river traffic and others, as in the case of San Francisco, Include all bay commerce. INCREASE SMALL In the fiscal year just ended, the total water commerce in and out of Los Angeles Harbor totaled 23,-505.000 tons, a slight Increase over the 23,448.000 tons handled in the previous fiscal year. Including bunk er oil, the 1928 fiscal tonnage was approximately 26,000,000 tons. Mr. Matson believes that this margin will be sufficient to retain second-place honors. Because of a decline in the prices of several commodities, the value of the 1928 tonnage fell off, dropping from $906,924,137 to $881,578,763. Lower prices for petroleum products was the principal reason for the de creased valuation. Government figures for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1927, will not be published until December 1, next. Mr. Matson states, however, that the ranking of New York and Los Angeles in the first two places is assured, but there is some question about third place. Baltimore and Philadelphia were the two leading candidates. Los Angeles Harbor dronned back in exports for the 1926-27 fiscal year, giving way to Baltimore and New port News, the harbors benefiting the most from the abnormal flow of coal abroad as the result of the coal strike. New York was in first place in exports and Los Angeles in fourth. OIL BOOSTS TONNAGE Petroleum commerce has been the chief influence behind the rise of Los Angeles Harbor among the leading exporting porta in the United States. The indications are, according to the Chamber of Commerce figures, that this harbor will again rank first as an exporter of petroleum and its products, although the rivalry is close with New York and New Orleans. Cotton is the second largest item of export in point of value, but in this commod- itv T.A Anpplps Tforhnr ranlra tvpll down in the list of American ports! In the shipment of sardines abroad, first Los Angeles Harbor and then Monterey take national precedence. The question of world leadership has never been definitely settled, because of the difficulty of getting accurate figures from some of the Norwegian ports. Los Angeles Harbor easily takes the world leadership in the export of citrus fruit, and also in honey. Most of the Los Angeles honey is consigned to Germany. The shipment of oil-well machinery is also one of the largest items from here. For first-place position in this article of commerce, Los Angeles and New 'York harbors are the chiel competitors. NEW YORK, July 2. Call money this afternoon Jumped to 10 per cent on the stock exchange as banks continued to make large withdrawals from the loan market.

BROKER LOAN MINIMUM SET New York University Economist Takes Decisive Stand for Further Sharp Reduction BY PAIL VTLLARD GARRETT Copyright. 1021. b N Tork Evanlna- Post. Inal NEW YORK, July 2. Anything much' less than an $800,000,000 further reduction in brokers' loans would satisfy "neither the loglo of the bank portfolio nor the desires of the Federal Reserve Board" and would be Inadequate. This bald statement by Dr. Lewis H Haney, director of the New York University bureau of business research, deserves attention at this time when the whole financial district Is grouping for an answer to the question: How must brokers' loans be reduced? Most financial prophets nowadays weeks and a 17-polnt decline in the content themselves with general remarks on the loan position without indicating any definite normal level to which the total must fall to restore a sound condition. What Dr. Haney does is to indicate specifically that brokers' loans will not be normal until they fall to about $3,100,000,000. This reduction would restore loaas roughly to their volume of a year ago. In contending for so sharp a decline any prophet must expect strong opposition from the bulls In the market. Certainly very good arguments can be advanced in support of this interesting claim, but some very good reasons likewise can be given why so drastic a cut seems unlikely. Here is how Dr. Haney arrives at his conclusion. He assumes that brokers' loans should not much exceed 20 per cent of the net demand deposits of member banks. A year ago they were 23 per cent; now they are over 30 per cent Brokers' loans should not represent more than 20 per cent of the total loans and discounts. A year ago they were 21 per cent; now they are 28 per cent. Brokers' loans should not exceed the investments of the member banks in other stocks and bonds. A year ago they were $300,-000,000 less than 6uch investments; now they are $600,000,000 more. If the market accepts Dr. Haney's analysis of loans, it is for vastly more liquidation than a majority of the authorities In Wall street anticipate. Nobody will deny that violent measures will be required to restore a position in credit as strong as that which prevailed when the rapid expansion In loans began. Even a $400,000,000 reduction in brokers' loans during the last three stock averages . have not brought any perceptible ease in money. - Rightly or wrongly, the financial district expects cheap money in July and In anticipation of this balm la beginning to buy ' stocks again. It remains to be whether the recent relaxation in speculation Is a temporary development or a preparation for further extended liquidation. That basic conditions would be Improved through further liquidation in loans, must, be plain. Whether it will come is the question. Bay City Mart Sets New High SAN FRANCISCO. July 2. MV-All previous records for market value of securities traded in within a single month on the San Francisco stock exchange were broken during June. Official figures announced by the exchange today showed the money value of security transactions last month amounted to $276,470,896. That figure eclipses the previous monthly record of $261,683,932 established In May this year by nearly $15,000,000. Security transactions in June. 1928, were greater in market value than during the entire first eight months of 1927. . Shares traded in during June totaled 3.473,817, making the second largest month in number of shares. The record month for volume of share turnover was May, 1928, when 3,823,130 shares were bought and sold. SHARP DECLINE MARKS TRADING Advance in Call Rate Halts Bull Movement Sales Volume Moderate as Credit Tightens Industrial List Leads Drop on Stock Exchange NEW YORK. July 2. A Ten per cent call money, making its first appearance in Wall street today since November 10, 1920, caused a sharp reaction in stock prices. Standard Industrials and rails dropped 1 to 5 points, while ft number of specialties sold 6 to 15 points lower. Trading was only moderate in volume, the day's sales runnl.ig below 1.750,000 shares. Call money renewed at 74 per cent, advanced to 8 by midday, thence to 9 and finally to 10, as banks called $75,000,000 in loans. Unusually large midyear settlements, together with the semlweek-ly strengthening of bank reserves and the heavy holiday demand for currencyy, brought aaout the temporary credit stringency. Owing to the heavy European midyear settlements, the high rates failed to at tract the usual inflow of funds f rem European capitals, in most of which, interest rates are lower than they are here. Stock prices started Irregularly higher, but selling pressure soon made its appearance in the motors and specialties, and then spreal to other sections of the list. Bear traders sold stocks freely on the theory that the technical position of the market had been weakened by the recent rapid recovery, but they failed to dislodge any considerable volume of long holdings.
