NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANCE SEATS.

THE following table prepared by Dow, Jones & Co., Publishers of The Wall Street Journal. Sale of a seat on the New York Stock Exchange on July 17, 1913 for $37,000, lowest since 1899. Before 1868, seats on the New York Stock Exchange were not transferred by purchase and sale. Aninitiation fee of $3,000 was, however, required from members duly elected by the board. In 1868, the transfer of seats began to have a market valuation, for in that year the present system of transfer was instituted.
