Moderate Reforms for Stock
Exchange Meet Approval
Can Shares Lead.
SHARP ADVANCES MADE
Loci! Securities Steady Georgetown
Gat Company Will Sue Balti
n' I. A. FLEMING.
It was "Sulzer Day" on the New York
fetock Exchange yesterday.. .
.From the itart to the linlsh the mar
Let showed more strength than any one
. had expected. There was nothing else
to ascribe the advance, to other than
the moderate, sage, and worthy reforms
suggested by Gov. Sulzer. and a special
ised movement of great strength in Can
issues, under the inspired buying by Dan
Reed's brokers. It was stated with more
or less speciQc reiteration that a plan
had been prepared by which it would
be possible to pay all or nearly all of
the back dividends on Can preferred,
perhaps through a new issue of Can
common, and on the strength of this
there was an SJ4 point raise In the pre
ferred, while the common moved up
-J'or onco the Can shares were the lead
ers of the entire market; moving more
freely than all others.
Trom somewhere came a report that
President-elect Wilson would again ad
dress capital and that this time modera
tion, conservatism, and caution, in a
prepared and studied effort, would be
likely to remove some of" the uneasiness
caused by previous addresses.
There were probably other Influences
than those mentioned, but it was diffi
cult to read the signs, other than the
fact that the street expects peace, and
the easier condition of the money mar
ket hate made a run in of the shorts
possible. In so far as a small percentage
of the short line has covered.
These conditions have made the short
interest exceedingly nervous, and they
are pxpected to run almost any minute.
Union Pacific and Steel ranmon each
li Id a point gain. North American.
Northern Pacific. Smelting. Copper, and
many other stocks were lal higher. Har-
ester, on the announcement of the purg
ing movement, rose 13-8, and , SIoss
Sheffield advanced 1H- Tobacco stocks
The street has been so uniformly bear
Ish that the spurt of Tuesday and the uv
creased activity, 460.000 shares came as
.in unexpected relief to the tired market.
Many traders changed position, some for
a whirl ending with the day-taking
profits In the last hour, and this brought
about '- point reactions from high.
Money "as plentiful at HiaZ per cent.

The complaint of the Georgetown Gas
Company officials against tho Washing
ton Gas Company, anent the alleged 11
legal holding of the "Georgetown Gas
stock by the former, 1II probably bo
It Is understood that the Georgetown
Gas Company will demand a decision as
t the legal owner to the 2.540 shares of
Georgetown stock, which they claim Is
"held illegally by the Washington Gas
The .suit by T L. lume is for the dis
tribution of 'the Georgetown stock to
the shareholders of the Washington Gas
Mr Hume has made no note toward
compromising his suit, but the George
town company Is determined to force
the issue, hating readied this conclusion
because of the refusal of the Washington
officials to take their case into court and
demand the right to exercise the control
thaa majority holdings should have a
right to exercise.
It Is Just possible that President Letter
may bo asked to state the company's
position on this matter when the share
holders meet in anuai session. The fact
that proxies have been sent in does not
mean control, as the presence of the
ihareholders In person vitiates the proxy.
The Washington Gas Company has
actually been offered 160 for their hold
ings of Georgetown stock, and the com
parison with this bid and the market
value of Washington Gas. a dividend
earner and payer, with double the ter
ritory, and main mileage, needs explana
tion. IiOcnl Securities.
It was not an especially active day
on the local exchange and yet prices
were reasonably Arm. Hallway preferred
sold at 90I-va91, the common at 6.
Washington Gas showed a firmer tone
at StS-SaRlS-S for odd lots for Invest
ment. Under some speculative short
telling this stock has presented a firm
Bonds were a little firmer at 110 T-8 for

there will b a better demand after the

In connection with the new financing of
the Consolidated Gas, Electric Light and
Power Company of Baltimore it was
learned yesterday that the company has
arranged for the sale of C300.000 Gas
Corapay "& per cent bonds to Messrs

ing issue of S4.000.000 short term notes,
$1,000,000 of which have already been
called by the Gas Company. While no

day. It Is understood that tho proceeds
from the sale of the bonds will be utilized
