cWk's e Trade Review Letters from Fur pc

theatrical News


(Henry Clews and Company)
New York, Nov. 15.-Bank clearings
last week at principal cities aggregat-
ed $4,500,000,000, or 67 per cent more
thin a year ago. This is an astonish-
ing gain. In New York especially,
where a gain of 108 per cent was
made, the greatest increase was not-
ed, This, however, was due partly to
the fact that the New York stock ex-
change was closed a year ago. Out-
side of New York, where conditions
were more normal, the gains were al-
so impressively large. The returns
for the month of October were equal-
ly significant, the total being $20,000,-
000,000 against $11,700,000,000 a year
ago. Here is an increase of over 70
per cent at all cities.
So much for bank clearings as evi-
dence of trade revival. What. about
railroad earnings? In the third week
of October 32 roads reported earnings
of $14,300,000, an increase of 17 per
cent over previous earnings, and traf-
fic is steadily becoming greater.
The iron trade continues to furnish
examples of unprecedented activity.
Since the first of September orders
for over 1,000,000 tons of rails, 550
locomotives and 45,000 cars have been
placed. This only represents a por-
tion of the new activity in the steel
trade as many railroads are building
considerable equipment on their own
account and the steel companies are
receiving many orders for outside con-
struction work.
This activity is already spreading
to various branches of trade. The1
textile industries show a healthy tone,
interior merchants having often been
caught with comparatively empty
shelves, which are now being replen-9
ished. Labor is well employed and
generally at good wages.E
On the stock exchange speculationa
has slowed down somewhat, the rapid
advance of the last few weeks having
induced moderate realizing and a;
temporary reaction.
The war still has a powerful in-
direct effect on the market. The con-
tinued withdrawal of ocean tonnage
for war purposes is havinga tendency
to restrain exports, the result being
less pressure on commercial bills and1
an increased firmness in foreign ex-
As for the future of the market,
while reactions such as those wit-l
nessed during the last few days are,
probable and necessary, the forward
movement does not seem to have
reached its climax. The impetus of
good crops has by no means spent its
force, nor is there anything to counter-E
act the latter except unforseen unfor-
tunate events growing out of the war.
Another very important factor ist

the inflationary effect of our huge
gold supply and the operations of the
new Federal Reserve system, both of
which have laid the basis for a tre-
mendous expansion of credit. The
Allies are bound to continue coming
here for a large part of their supplies,
and having less merchandise to send
in payment, they must continue fo
ship gold as freely as possible.
In about three weeks Congress will
open and a new set of issues will be
pressed upon public attention. The
attacks upon capital, which have con-
tinued for over 20 years, have about
spent their force. Many of the old
abuses have been practically elimin-
ated, and this form of political enter-
prise is rapidly going out of fashion,
particularly since its injurious effects
have become so evident to all con-
The problem of preparedness will
also figure prominently in public af-
fairs. This is an entirely new issue
and one demanding a prompt and sat-
isfactory solution. To it more than
anything else public attention will be
directed in the near future.

At the Whitney theatre, Thursday,
November 18, Cohan and Harris will
present their great farce hit, "It Pays
to Advertise." This announcement
alone should suffice to till every seat
in the theatre, for everyone has been
patiently awaiting the coming of this
funniest of all farces. "It Pays to
Advertise" is one of the brightest, best
acted, and most enjoyable plays that
Cohan and Harris have produced in
the past ten years. Written by Roi
Cooper Megrue and Walter Hackett,
it was the supreme success of last
season in New York city, There it
made an inevitable reputation as a
laughing success by playing to capac-
ity houses for fifty-two solid weeks at
the Cohan theatre. Here is a play
that is a veritable riot. of laughter
from start to finish, full of humorous
dialogue and critically commended,
especially for the wholesomeness of
its presentation, the cleverness of its
construction and the sustained inter-
est of the startling story. What is
more, "It Pays to Advertise" is thor-
oughly sane, because the motives for its
hilarious action are cleverly defined
and easily understood. It is a play
for every-day.people about every-day
people and every-day business condi-
Messrs. Cohan and Harris desire to
lay stress on the fact that they will
provide the complete Cohan theatre
production, precisely as presented
during the year's run at the Broad-
way playhouse. The players who
comprise the splendid cast were se-
lected by Geo. M. Cohan personally,
with a view to visualizing every char-
acter to the fullest possible degree.

Thjere are no 5igns or thee walrI

fact we hear less about the war here
than yen do in America. The prospects
for the year at the academy are unus-
ually bright despite the conflict, and
we are fortunate this year in having
the most advanced group of students
ever enrolled at the institution.
Among those present are graduates
! of Harvard, Yale, Michigan, Pennsyl-
vania, Wisconsin and Darmouth."
Professor Sanders is on a one-
year leave of absence from the Uni-
versity, having left Ann Arbor last
July. He had planned to return next
summer but he expressed in the letter
lIhis beliif that his home-coming will
probably have to be po4tponed on ac-
count of the war.

Philadelphia, Nov. 15.-The mem-
bers of the .Pennsylvania football
team consented to pose for moving
pictures here today and with fifteen
men on a side staged a thrilling game
for a few minutes. The Lubin com-

stituted the first reel *of the new
dra ma, "Beyond All Is Love." The
filmacompany supplied the hero,
whom the scenario demanded should
be injured. This was accomplished
y the simple expedient of having

away from the conventional two foot-
balls were used.
