' LOSSES NOTED
Sentimental Influences Prevail and
Standard'Secnrities Show Drop.
Specialties Hove Up.

New York. Oct i Sentimental influ-
ences prevailed in the stock market to
day, -with the result that numerous net
losses were recorded. All the standard
securities and practically those with an
International market were heavy. Spe
cialties were movedto new high records,
notably "Woolworth, Bethlehem Steel, and
Kresge. The close was heavy in nearly
' London sent over prices more than a
point on the average under the closing
prices of the previous session In New
a "Fork, and these sharp declines made
"Wall Street take the Balkan situation
The fact that America Is In position to
draw gold from Europe In the face of
the heavy selling of securities proves
the tremendous strength of the financial
position of the United States. The stocks
sold by Europe this week have furnished
an offset of 10.000.000 at least against the
cold movement. It can be seen from this
that the moment the Balkan disturbance
is qulted down America will be able to
draw gold In treat volumes, and can con
tinue to do so unless Europeans buy
back their stocks.
Bear Party Active.
The bear party In the stock market
took advantage of to-day's unsettlement
to circulate stories of heavy liquidation
by important interests. Attention was
drawn again to the possibilities
political scares, to the high rate for
money, the forthcoming; decisions in the
Supreme Court on the coal cases and
the rate cases, and on the Union Pacific
ownership of Southern Pacific The pos
Elbllity of a decision in favor of an ad
vanced wage scale for railroad employes
was also emphasized. The careful ob
server, however, could not overlook the
fact that the buying of Steel and New
Tork Central is about the best seen for

Formal Xotlre of Mercer.

Car Shortasre Anticipated.
Attention is being called by trade pa
pers and the dally press to the possi
bility that freight car equipment on all
the big railroad systems will come far
short of the demand on the part of
shippers during the fall months and the
early winter. Present indications point
to a revival of business within the next
few months of great volume, which will
tax the railroads to their ultimate ca
pacity, and even go beyond it Com
menting upon the situation the New Tork
Mali sajs editorially:
"For the next eight months, and
possibly longer, the capacity of the
country to do business will be lim
ited only by its transportation facili
ties. Already there is a demand for
freight cars considerably In excess of
the supply, with the ratio on an ascend
ing scale. Before snow files a shortage
of 200.CO0 cars is predicted. Just how
much worse the situation may become
will depend upon the openness of the
winter, the co-operation between the
railroads and the shippers in unloading
cars and getting them back to points of
origin, and the available supply of ea
sels'at Atlantic and Gulf ports to carry
eastward the enormous purchases
grain and merchandise which Europe has
