ims yesterday offered by these traders

morning, and other lisues In which ac

WITH POOR SUPPORT
IN CHICAGO MARKET
Wheat Opens Easier Today
as Result Exporters Still
in Market, But Foreign
1 CHICAGO. Oct. 27. Wheat opened easier
today on scattered selling and an absence
of Important support. Receipts at in
terior points were somewhat larger, and
it wns believed that farmers were will
ing to sell at present prices
Exporters arc still in the liarket, hut
the business with foreigners seems to
havo lost some of its effect for the tlmo
being. The absenco of a Inrge outstand
ing short interest deprived the market of
buying poner. Later omo support de
veloped for December at $1 1". Hotter
crops advices from India and Australia
and continued large arrivals at Liverpool
caused a decline In prices there at the
opening. Later the undertone of that
mnikrt steadied on renewed support and
disquieting reports from Argentina.
llirie has I ten an enoimuuw deer, ase In
the crops of Germany, and. owing to tho
official prohibition of exports, the entire
yield remains at the disposal of the Gov
ernment, which. It Is sold, has nothing to
fear for at least a year. General Joftro
has dlrectrd a circular to prefects of de
partments In the war zone calling their
attention to the neglect of harvesting
operations and delayed seeding. He urges
that the work be pushed vigorously.
Weather and crop news from Russia
generally is favorable. Hungary has
suspended the Import duty on all grain.
Corn was easier all around on better
weather over the entire belt. Conditions
are Ideal for curing the new crop. Trade
was light and support poor. The market
at Liverpool was under pressure on bet
ter weather In Argentina and liberal Plate
Oats declined on scattered commission
selling. Pit sentiment was bearish. There
was fairly good buying on the decline.
Provisions were a little easier.

TRADE BOOM DISCUSSED
Alba B. Johnson Suggests Means of
Obtaining Valuable Information.
Alba B. Johnson, president of the
Baldwin Locomotive Works and mem
ber of the Philadelphia Foreign Trades
Committee, has suggested that the most
effective way to Insure for Philadelphia
her part of South American trades Is to
affiliate with the American ilanufac
turers' Export Association of New York.
The matter has been referred to the
Executive Committee for action.
Mr. Johnson made the suggestion after
hearing recommendations of nine sub
committees, appointed several weeks ago
to Investigate the question of trade with
Latin-American countries. He decries
any elaborate Individual attempts on
the part of Philadelphia to obtain data
on the matter, since this has already
been gathered by private concerns, nota
bly the National City Bank of New
York, and miy bo had for the asking.

TO REGULATE TRADE
OF 'FOREIGN TRUSTS'
tives Believe Act Will
Open Way to Curb Foreign
The act creating a Federal Trade Com
mission, signed by President Wilson on
September 26, It Is believed by legal rep
resentatives of manufacturing interests,
will open tho way for regulating the busi
ness in this country of foreign combina
tions. During consideration of the bill It was
pointed out that, while It prescribed pen
alties for price fixing by manufacturers,
making It nn offenso to sell nt lower
prices abroad than In home markets, sov-
I eral powerful trusts, notably In Europe,
would not be restrained from continuing
practices by which many Interests, tho
textile Industry In particular, were men
aced. Now the trusts across seas may bo
curbed In their transactions, as well as
those of this country, for the act creat
ing the Federal Trade Commission pro
vides: "It shnll have power to Investigate,
from time to time, trade conditions In
and with foreign countries where asso
ciations, combinations or practices of
manufacturers, merchants or traders, or
other conditions, may affect the foreign
trade of the United States nnd report to
Congress thereon, with such recommenda
tions as it deems advisable."
Horace Stern, of Stern Wolf, attor
neys, In the Land Title Building, when ho
appeared before the House Committee on
the Judiciary, In February, in antagonism
to foreign trusts, showed up tho opera
tions of n yarn combine In Germany,
which dumped surplus production Into
the United States at prices with which
domestic spinners In tho same lino could
not compete, while maintaining higher
prices In Germany. Mr. Stern appeared
In support of n bill which, had it becomo
a law, would have put the foreign trust
on a lovel with Independent spinners.
Though the bill failed of passage, tho
provision In the Federal Trade Commis
sion net, It Is believed by Mr. Stern, makes
It possible to accomplish what was con
templated In the bill which he cham
pioned. Foreign combines have had at their
mercy not only buyers hero In their mar
kets, but sellers ns well, as was dis
closed specifically with relation to copper.
This country. It Is said by John D. Ryan,
of Butte, tho Montnna "Copper King,"
produces 75 per cent, of the copper of tho
world and sells Ba per cent, of tne pro
ductions In unmanufactured form.
"Whenever we sell copper to England,
France or Germany," Mr. Ryan says,
"we have to sell to combined buyers, who
at times have named the price, with the
result that of the 450,00,000 business In
export copper In 14 years most of It was
done nt a sacrifice of a half cent a
NEW STREET PRICES
ARE NOT A CRITERION
OF THE REAL VALUE
Banks Should Not Recog
nize Quotations in Making
Loans Many Institutions
Have Done So, Says
The announcement from New York yes
terday that the New street curb wa
practically dispersed by the police, and
that the crowd on hand at tho usual time
for tho besinnlne of business was smaller
than usual, apparently Indicates that what
was said In prominent banking circles
last week about "Brjuelchlng" the open
air trading was not mere Idle talk.
When tho stock exchanges of the coun
try decided on the morning of July 31
to discontinue business until further no
tice It was the general understanding that
the closing prices of July 30 were to be
considered the basis on which nil call
loans with the banks should rest, as well
as all marginal accounts with brokers.
This. In fact, was a fixed determination
on the part of banking interests. It being
clearly recognized that tho brakes must
be put on hard and fast at that level
to prevent widespread disaster. In Eu
rope this end was accomplished by the
declaration of the moratorium, and the
closing of the stock exchanges here was,
In effect, practically the same thing so
far as brokers' rnll loans with the banks
and marginal accounts were concerned
With the pnsslns of the days and weeks
and months, however, and with tho end
scarcely yet In sight, it was to be ex
pected that there would be efforts made
on the part of needy security holders to
realize on their holdings. The New street
market was the only celling channel that
could be found by those who found them
selves the victims of necessity.
I Fay it was to be expected that this
port of thing should take place, but It
was not to be expected that the banking
Interests should allow themselves to be
disturbed by the small current of bus
iness that would run through such a
channel. But In quite a few Instances
they have done to, and certain banks in
New York and Philadelphia have been
ralllntr on their customers to reduce their
loans or deposit additional margin, based
on the New street curb prices.
This, in turn, has been quite disturbing
to brikera and their customers, who find
it extremelv dlfllcult under the prevailing
conditions to make any more satisfactory
adjustment of their loans, and who feel.
In a measure, that they are not being
accorded fair treatment. Inasmuch as It
was undoubtedly the determined purpose
of the closing of the Stock Bxchanges
that there should be no disturbance of
the loan basis as fixed by the closing
prices of July 30 until such time as the
Exchanges could be opened without the
danger of panic or disaster.
It Is certainly to be deplored that any
bank should have permitted Itself to be
come anxious and upset over these New
street curb prices, as It can, of course,
readily be seen that by so doing they
at once invite the disaster which the clos
ing of the Exchanges was Intended to

EXPORTS OF FOOD
IN SINGLE MONTH
Government's Report of
Commerce for September
Shows Balance of $14,
000,000 in Favor of U. S.
WASm.VGTON. Oct. 27.-Desplte the
I.'uropean war the balance of trade ells,
closed $11.000,i) on the right side of the
ledger for the United States during the
month of September. This was a falling
off of J30,CC0,OX from the balance of the
same month In 1913, however.
Every uroup of exports, as set forth in
the report issued today by the Department
of Commerce, shows a decline, with thr
exception of foodstuffs. These alone
matntaln the supremacy of this country's
export trade, being Just JCO.OOO.COO greater
than the same month last year.
The exports of crude materials for use
In manufacturing showed the greatest
decrease, falling last month almost to
one-fifth of the volume sent abroad In
the same month of last year.
Correspondingly, the crude materials
for manufacturing Imported into the
United States likewise showed a decided
falling off for the month, as did manu
factured articles ready for consumption.
Foodstuffs to the value of approximately
I7.0OO.0iXj more were Imported than In
September, 1318 Most of this Increased
importation came from Argentina, Aus
tralia, Canada and Cuba, principally in
meats, grain, sugars and fruits.
Some Idea of how Great Britain dom
inates the trans-Atlantlo lines of traffic
Is gleaned from the report, which shows
that the Imports from the United King-
17,000,009 greater than to jfis UH J
