the purpose of securing signers to ini

and forwarded to secretary of state
Sidney Osborn. The ruling made by
the state was that all petitions to ini

hands of Mrs. Joseph Calisher, who
soon had it filled. The other was at

good fortune followed Its course.
The general feeling in Douglas seems
to be that if the women desire to cast

say them nay. It is as yet too early

that the amendment will receive heartj

Gains Quickly Turned to
Losses, and Market
New York, N. Y July 3. Following
the conclusion of the second of the
great party conventions the market to
day opentd strong. Gains of one to
two points were registered by many
securities with pronounced strength in
Steel, Union Pacific, Beading, the Hill
issues and Brooklyn Transit

acted almost violently, gains quickly
turning to losses with especial weak
ness in the speculative favorites.
Bonds were heavy.
Pressure ceased at midday and there
was some covering shorts which rallied
prices from onehalf to one point
The market closed irregular. The
Graingexs followed the lead of the Hill
Issues in the last hour and Ontario -&
Western rose over its price of last
week, when the dividend was sus
pended. The leaders and American To
.bacco continued under pressure.
