f l Early Show of Firmness Rally at Close.
KEW TOnK, Sept. 23. The Importance given by the financial district
te.ttM negotiations over the big allied loan was reflected on tho Stock Ex
y today, when tho report spread that a hitch had occurred In tho
njotlAttons. The result was a general reaction, which In somo Instances
teaded from E to 10 points. Later, when no proof of troublo was forthcom-
I, the wholo market rallied again- Satisfactory conclusion of tho ncgotla
ttMts appear to be all that Is needed now for an uplift In general business.
Tfce country, on tho whole, Is on the eve of a big expansion, 'and tho most
.iwtent factor nt the moment Is the Improvement In the steel trade, where
i tVe demand has sent prices for products rapidly upward In the last few
mths. Tho outlook. Indeed, Is of tho best. We have plenty of money,
kwier crops aro assured and we are r'eady to lncrcaso our foreign trade.
Whllo It Is true that tho foreign demand for stool products Is tho most
etomlnant factor at the moment, the domestic demand Is gradually becoming
larger. Railroads are buying more steel, whllo many of them have put out
Inquiries for delivery next year.
That It will tako somo time before the huge Anglo-French loan is arranged
there can bo very little doubt, bul its ultimate success Is assured. It must
fc remembered that anything of this size cannot be brought to a head over
Bight. But that some agreement will be finally reached there can bo very
Mttto doubt. Many have come to regard the loan as Just aa necessary to
Me country as it Is to the Allies. The money raised will not be takon out.
bat will be spent here for necessities, which means that, instead of lying piled
Mp In bank vaults as a .big surplus, the money will be put to some use, going
Into business channels.
In the stock market little attention haa been given to the railroad shares
fer some time past, the majority of tho trading being In tho Industrials, where
the demand has been heavy at rising prices, brought about by tho large earn
ings of the various companies because of war orders chiefly. Tho $G0 cash
dividend declared by tho General Motors Company is still an lnfluenco In
this group of securities, and then, too, rooro war orders are expected. Tho
railroad shares should, bo given more attention. Earnings are showing up
well aa compared with last year, and tho outlook Is good. Ono thing which
has been holding them back Is the foreign selling, with the purposo of stabiliz
ing exchango rates. With the big loan arranged, this will bo out of the way.
The markot today was In a waiting mood, and after a firm opening prices
were inclined to react on rumors of a hitch In tho allied loan negotiations.
At the outset AmcrlcanChlcle, JuBt admitted to tho list, Jumped 10 points
to 219, ngalnst 209, Its final curb quotation yesterday. American Car and
Foundry was one of the most prominent features of tho minor industrials,
rising over a point New York Air Braku stnrted 2 higher at 162, but quickly
lost tho gain. American Can, Colorado Fuel, Republic Iron and Steel and
Great Northern Ore Bharcd in tho upward movement, but United States Steel
reacted under profit-taking.
An eight-point drop in General Motors around midday unsettled tho list
and prices declined all around. Willys-Overland, Crucibles Steel nnd other
recent leaders were -down two rtnd three points, and United States Steel lost
joro than a dollar. Trading became very active on tho recession, over half a
million shares having changed hands before midday. Tho suspension of a
targe Pittsburgh brokerage firm was responsible for somo of tho selling, but
' the market became steadier in the afternoon.
( In tho last hour" prices rallied under a renewal of bull manipulation In
Colorado Fuel and Baldwin Locomotive. General Motors, however, remained
depressed. United States Steel recovered Its loss. The closo was Irregular.
An encouraging Item of the day's news was a very favorable August
statement of earnings by the Southern Pacific. Both in gross and net, gains
i ef more than a million dollars were reported over tho same period last year.

Shorts Covered nnd Prices Ad
vanced for n Time Only to
Fall Back Later
CHICAGO, Sept. 23. September wheat
continued to feature tho market at tho
openlnir today. Shorts, fearing there
would not bo ulTlclent nvallable for de
livery by tho end of the month, kept cov
ering, nnd following tho opening at (1.07U.
more than a cent better than yesterday's
closing quotations, tho price roso steadily
In tho early hours, liccomlng desperate,
shorts bought springs to fill orders, but
most longs refused to accept. This has
necessitated a special session of the dl
rectora of the Hoard of Trado. One large
house Is said to bo 6,000,000 bushels short
In September. Others, large and small,
are said to bo struggling In the net and
prloes. It Is expected, will not suffer any
depression until the end-oMhe-month ad
justment. In the afternoon, when the covering
movement had been completed, renewed
offerings appeared, and prices fell back all
around. Corn also weakened, but oats
held Arm. The close found wheat a cent
or more below last night.
Cash wheat remained Arm. Millers are
buying spring wheat to make up the de
ficiency In winter wheat. The demand for
spring wheat Is sufficient to keep It free
of congestion, although arrivals aro In
creasing. Winter movement continues re
stricted and the wheat Is grading poorly.
Therefore September occupies the centre
of the stage, with a strong bull senti
ment, while other futures are held steady
under bearish pressure. Trading In Sep
tember In the early hours was exceedingly,
light, although many anxious buyers could
be found.
Liverpool was firm In rill departments.
cargoes and spot remained unchanged.
Argentina wenther In the Pnmpa and
Cordoba districts Is fnr from satisfac
tory. Estimated shipments for tho week
are 160,000 bushclB of wheat, against 720,
000 bushels last week, nnd 136,000 bushels
In the corresponding period of a year
ngo. Corn shipments total 6,G25,000 bush
els, as compared with 5,959,000 last week
and 3,128,000 bushels last year.
