Sharply on Belief That

NEW TOMC. Dec. .-There was tin
Kbsence of demand for stocks In the
trading today, this having constituted the
unlet feature In the price movements yes
terday. The opening was quiet and Ir
regulat, and In general the closing Quo
tations of yesterday -were maintained.
Sentiment, on the whole, was bullish, and
Wany commission houses advised their
customers to buy on reactions. Kor tho
xaoll part daUngs were In specialties.
The market was not active at any time.
Today's business was tho smallest of
any day since tho exchange reopened,
total sales of stock being 60.000 shares
!nd bonds Jl.703.000. Reading was the
only stock In which the transactions
amounted to 10,000 shares.

eixtent. Reading was off 74 at 143. Penn

fne President's note to Great Britain
recanting Interference with our com
Jtierco was regarded as a bearish Influence
by tho trading element on the floor, who
offered the standard stocks down about
one point on an idea that tho reaction
itfould cam u new speculative liquidation
There was no outside speculation In evi
dence, howovcr, on this downturn, and
when this became apparent the traders
changed their position and hurriedly
fcought back the stocks sold by them at
the beginning 'of business and an upturn
Marked weakness In Rock Island bonds
caused considerable interest. The Rock
Island Ea declined to 62. off 5 from tho
ening. The collateral 4s of th Chi

The street was of the opinion that If
the foreclosure sale of the road Is con
firmed there will be a stiff assessment on
tAm holders of the stock. This fright
ened timid holders of the bonds, causing
them to drop their holdings on the mar
ket. For some time past the manlpuia-
"vii ui mi rows securities have been

belief that when the property is reorgan
ised It will be In strong hands.
On the downward swing sterling ex
change touched a new low level. Jt was
rUWected to pressure from offerings of
bankers bills. Demand declined to 4.84K.
S ? i5w?t Xor J-"1-- '" shipment on
Saturdays steamer. For the next steamer
was quoted and 4.83 for cables,
rnero was a general absence of bids.
This low level for sterling must soon
force the question of gold imports Into
consideration, and there Is now a general
disposition to look for a return flow of
the metal from Ottawa.
There was a general opinion In the
f,..et hat "'""ns exchango .rates are
likely to work still further In our favor.
Washington advices suggest that the final
lorvign trade figures for this month will
show excess of exports over Imports of

Hope for Better Business
After January 1.
The Philadelphia stock market contin
ued to wear a holiday aspect today and
brokers do not look for much revival of
activity durlns; the rest of the week.
Price changes were confined to narrow
fractions for the most part, and much
of the trading was In odd lots only, Penn
sylvania. Lehlsli Valley and Cambria
8lccl ruled Orm, whereas United Gas
Improvement reacted. Opening recessions
wete pretty much canceled by tho end
of tho first hour, and thereafter stae
nation reigned. Only 34 shares of United
States Steel appeared on the tape be
tween 10 and 3 o'clock. During the sec
ond hour not a single hundred aliare lot
changed hands, the total belnc Just 37
shares of stock and two bonds. Philadel
phia Electric made little response to the
awnrdlnc of the Talrmount Park lighting
contract for 1915. The amount Involved
Is H5.70O. In tho afternoon bulne orders
appo.ired In Northern Central, which
lifted It ncross S3, whereas Philadelphia
Traction eased off. In tho bond division
Interstate 4s developed activity at G7. I-e-l
high Navigation IHs and New Jersey
Traction Es were In fair demand.
The flattening out of the bond market
of late has been a distinct disappointment
to local dealers, who, during November
and the early part of December, did a
brisk business. It Is hoped, however,
that with the turn of the year, when the
January dividend and Interest disburse
ments become available, that the Invest
ment demand will pick up. It Is hoped,
too, that the cotton situation will loosen
up soon, and the large amounts of
funds tied up In carrying that commodity
will be turned Into the Investment
Money continues to work easier In this
section. The manager of a big brokerage
house remarked this morning that scarce
ly a day passes that he Is not called up
and offered considerable sums of time
money as low as 414 per cent. He added
that he looked to see the call rate re
duced to that figure very shortly after
the turn of the year. For the first time
today tho local Federal Ileserve Bank
redlscounted Its first commercial paper of
longer maturity than 90 days. It was on
agricultural products and tho rate was
6 per cent. The amount was small and
was offered by a country member.

WHEAT SHAKES OFF
AND CLOSES FIRM
Shorts fnduccd to Cover Be
cause of Export Business
on Break Sentiment
CHICAGO, Dec . After showing
heaviness throughout the forendon, the
wheat market rallied and ctosedflrm to
day. Shorts were Induced to cover be
cause of export business on the break.
Both Armour nnd Patten were credited
with buying. Leading -cash Interests also
purchased. Sentiment was more divided
than for some time.
A report that the British government
Intended to release a large number of
vessels used as transports to relieve the
Argentine freight situation, was looked
upon as bearish. Freight rates In Argen
tina were 6j 6d ngalnst 43s last Friday.
Fears wero entertained there for ship
ping, causing depression In values. Some
authorities raised their estimates on the
exportable surplus of Argentina to 130,
000,000 bushels, but Broomliall said there
was no change In tho outlook for a sur
plus of from 110.000,000 to 110,000,000 bush
els. The late strength was due to a cable to
Armour estimating the surplus of Argen
tina for shipment abroad at 104,000,000
bushels, and on a message from Liver
pool that Argentina wheat actually costs
moro than American. Sales for export
were 1,000,000 bushels. Futures closed H
81 cent higher.
Corn opened a little firmer because of
unsettled weather and liberal receipts, but
turned easier on lower cables, good crop
news and the break In wheat. Later the
market shared In tho rally with wheat
and finished firm. The new Argentine
crop promises well both as to size and
Shipments of tho old crop from that
country continue at the rate of about
6,000,000 bushels a week. Futures closed
4J1 cent higher.
Oats Improved after showing easiness.
Export sale) the past 21 hours were said
tn be fully 3,000,000 bushels. The exporta
ble surplus of Argentina Is now plnced nt
49,CO0.CK bushels. Futures closed USH
After a brief return at tho outset, pro
visions declined on prospects for larger
receipts of hogs tomorrow and pressuro
from packers. The Initial upturn was due
to buying by speculators

LACK OF AMERICAN SHIPS
SENDS FREIGHT RATES UP
Department of Commerce Reports
Huge Advance Since War Began.
"WASHINGTON, Dec 29. Ocean freight
rates on shipments to Europe, from the
United States have gone up since the out
break of the war "to a point affordlna
enormous speculative profits." This situ
ation Is due to the fact that the United
States has no merchant marine.
These were the features of a report to
day made to. the Senate by the Depart
ment of Commerce In response fo a reso
lution of Senator Fletcher adopted by the
Senato on December 18.
Cotton shipped from Ner Tork to Liv
erpool had a freight rate on July It of 20
cents per hundred pounds. On September
12 the rate was 40 cents, and on Decem
ber 19 It was 75 cents. Cotton was shipped
to Bremen, Germany, nt a 20-cent rnte on
July 11; on December 23 the rate was 3
per hundred pounds.
Sacked flour from New Tork to Eng
lish ports had a rate of 12 to 13 cents per
hundred pounds at the outbreak of the
war. Now similar shipments cost 26 to
3. cents. Similar Increase was shown In
rates to other European points.
ALLOWS RATE INCREASE
TO SOUTHWEST ROADS
Advances B&nge From One-half of 1
Per Cent, to Nearly 3 Per Cent.
WASHINGTON, Dec. Il.-The Inter
state Commerce Commission today pub
lished an Important addition to the 5 Der
cent, rate case by authorizing certain
rate advances In the Southwest.
The commission's order declared the
through class rates applying In both di
rections between the Central Freleht Aa.
soclatlon territory and the Southwest mav
be advanced subject to the Western clas
sincatlon in certain specific amounts
ranging from ft of 1 per cent, to nearly
3 per cent The rate groups Involved are
Louisville, Cincinnati, Dayton, South
Bend, Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
The commission further ordered that
"wherein territorial Jplnt through rates
have been published on the combination
of Intermediate rates to and from thn
Ohio and Mississippi River crossings, the
amount of the increase In the Joint
through rate will not be greater than the
amount of tho Increase In the rate of the
Central Freight Association's lines to and
from the gateway,"
This Is not to be understood as permit
ting the increases on commodities, the
commission stated, which were not grant
ed Increases ln-the original E per cent,
The commission ordered also that the
carriers may preserve the grouping of
points of origin and destination In Cen.
tral Freight Association territory which
have been heretofore observed In making
Joint rates between that territory and the

RISE IN STEEL PRICES
Xeadins; Companies Look for
vance After January 1.
It was learned oil. good authority today'
that structural Bteel prices are to i),
advanced after Janunry 1. This Is tha,l
first sign of actual stiffening of prices n'
that branch, of the trade, but for somsj
time tle big companies have been only I
taking orders for very close delivery all
the existing low quotations.
Rail makers expect that there will b
at lua'st 100,000 tons Involved In the inltlaO
rail orders to be placed by tho Tennsyl-J
vanla und Baltimore and Ohio roads.
Tho New York Central has placed or-i
dere for J7.000 tons and Is making In
quiries for 44.BOO tons additional.
An official In one of the largest of th, ""J
country's steel companies remarked to.
day that he believed the Increase in
in the trade than the much-exploited
roreign orders for war materials. He
said that these had been somewhat ex
aggerated, whereas already considerable
orders aro being received from BUch Im- j
portant concerns aa the Illinois Central
Railroad, the Union Tank Line, the West- '
moreland Coal Company, the Reading and
others. An Indication of the relatively
low levels to which steel and Iron prices J
nave lauen, as compared with the same
period a year ago, may be had from the
following table ot Pittsburgh quotations:

after Interest and preferred dividends,
showed 6,1 per cent, earned on the com
mon. The president says: "We have
been developing qur domestic sources of
necessary raw materials. We were, there
fore, partly fortified against the situation
which has arisen, but It had not been
expected that -we would so soon have been
lorced to rely on American sources of
supply, fills, together with the unset
tled financial conditions recently prevail
ing In this country, made It necessary to
reserve the cash resources of the com
pany, and your directors accordingly took
no uctlon In respect to the quarterly divi
dend of 1 per cent on the preferred
stock, which customarily would have
been paid November 1, nnd which was .
more than earned."
