Powder at Highest Point
in Two Years Money
neassurnnco from official sources thnt
the Government would submit nil sugges
tlons regarding changes In the United
Un,a. Improvement organization td tho
Imnnngomcnt beforo attempting any legal
action, helped to hold tho Btock firm on
tho local Exchange toilay. In fact, a.
smalt fractional advance was scored dur
ing the morning on odd-lot purchases.
International Smokeless Powder shares
rose to 23 on 'Chango, tho highest price
at whloh thoy have sold In ovor two
years. The company Is doing tho tlggost
business In Its history, It Is said, work
ing night and day and obtaining almost
double ltB usual prices on foreign ship
ments. The general local list rcneciou
tho firm tono of tho Now York market,
nnd small advances woro tho rule, A
block of over 1C0O shnres of Ilapld Transit
certificates changed hands at 11. An ac
count was ruported to bo In liquidation.
Director Taylor estimates that tho city
transit plan will require 117,000,000, of wnicn
$30,000,000 is sufficient fo rtho present. Tho
special election wilt probably bo held In
tho spring. Tho plan provides that tho
city construct tho now lines and leaso
thorn, giving tho Itapld Transit Company
first option as lessco and operator.
Tho llrst salo ot Heading stock which
has been mado on tho local oxtthaligo
slnco Monday occurred Just beforo tho
close this afternoon, when u. slnglo aha.ro
changed hands at 78. On Moilday seven
slmrcs sold at 71 11-16.
Tho Lake Superior groups failed to ro
spbnd to reports of Increasing orders and
general Improvements In trade conditions
In Canada. It Is understood that de
splto enforced economics by tho rail
roads of the Dominion and restriction of
orders and slow collections tho company's
earnings held up to about parity with
tho previous year. For tho first flvo
months ot tho present fiscal period net
earnings totaled approximately $1,000,000.
Money was exceedingly easy, and call
funds wero In good supply at -U4 per cent.,
although tho official rate Is still main
tained at S per cent. Tlmo money Is
offered as low as 4 por cent, but tho
country banks have been withdrawing
from tho commercial paper market of
late, owing to tho narrow margin of profit

LEAVES ADJUSTMENT OF
. BALANCES TO BANKERS
Drop in Exchange Rates Ends Plans
of England and TT. S.
LONDONt Jan. 8. Tho Treasury of
ficially announced today that, In view ot
the fact that exchange between the United
Stales and the United Kingdom has bo
come practically normal, there is no
longer any necessity for further con
sideration by the two Governments of
any plan for the adjustment of balances,
and that the question has been left to
tho respective bankers ot the two coun
tries. It has already been felt In financial
circles that any such artificial measures
as tho establishment of a 1100,000,000 credit
In London against which America could
draw to pay her debts to England are
now unnecessary. When Sir George
I'alsh returned to London nlth H. P.
Davidson and other Now York financiers
to arrange some solution of tho ex
change situation, It was predicted that
this scheme would bo adopted,
Kven now It Is admitted that aomo pro
vision should be made agnlnst war emer
gencies which may arise and again dis
arrange credit machinery. Whothor this
will take tho form of a modification of
tho original scheme or of somo fresh
measure Is not known.
