OF COMMERCIAL PAPER
Governor Hamlin B&fa It la Chief
Topic of Discussion by lleserve Board
WASHINGTON. Nov. fl.-Commerclal
paper ns denned under the Federal re
serve act was acknowledged by Governor
Hamlin today to be the chief topic of dis
cussion among members of the federal
Reserve Board. Governor Hnmlln said
tho question linFl arisen as to whether or
not slnglo Indorsed pnper could be ac
cepted n9 commercial paper In the strict
sense of tho term. He lntlmnted that
the board would possibly consider all
forms of commercial paper and decide
what particular classes could bo so
Further consideration of tho tentative
plan agreed between Sir George Palnh.
of the British Treasury, anil the board,
transmitted to London by cable, formed
no part of the conference. Sir George
has not ns yet received a reply from the
tlrltlsh Trensury ofllrlals, and therefore
will not be In a position to resume nego
tiations until he Is apprised of their view.
A meeting of the bonrd has been called
for later today, when It Is expected Sir
George will present some communication
from his Government, t'poti this reply,
board members say, the opening of Stock
Exchanges In both London and New York
SMALL, WITH TOM
FIRM AT CHICAGO
Action of Market Yesterday
Caused Hesitation for Fear
Some Positions Had Been
CHICAGO, Nov. 6. -Trade In wheat
was small this morning, but tho under
tone was firm. There was fairly good
buying through commission houses.
Sentiment continued bullish, but action
of the murkct yesterdny enured some
hesitation on tho part of purchasers, ns
It was believed some positions had been
overbought. Hecelpts were quite liberal
again, nnd the steadily accumulating
stocks arc against any material ad
vance, notwithstanding the largo oxport
sales from day to day.
Tho foreign business tho last II hours
again exceeded 1,000.000 , bushels. Tho
mnrket at Liverpool was firm, although
trading was not heavy. The crop news
from Argentina Is disquieting, and prices
at IJucnos Aires strong. Shipments
from Argentina for the week were 73.000
bushels. The visible supply is 390.0CO
bushels, ngnlnst 20J.OOO bushels a year
ago. The weather there continues cold,
with frost In parts.
Supplies of grain In southeastern Kuropo
are strongly held, unit this will continue
during tho war. Tho prospects for the
next crop there are not bright.
Corn was a little easier at the outset,
hut became firmer. Tho wcathoi' con
tinued fine for curing nnd moving tho
new crop. Corn nt Liverpool was strong,
nnd so were tho Argentina markets.
Thero Is active competition for plato
holdings. Shipments from Argentina for
tho week were 5.018,000 bUBhcls. The vis
ible supply thero Is 7,r,00,000 bushels,
against 2.3SO.0OO bushels a year ago.
Oats advanced nfter the opening. Oats
in southwestern Argentina have been
damaged 13 to 30 per cent.
