'rurftiah government bonds were
rather noticeably soft, and this,
taken in connection with runner
marked weakness in sterling, fur
nished an indication that banking
opinion abroad was viewing the
latest developments at the Darda
nelles with some uneasiness. So
far as the decline in sterling was
concerned, however, it could have
been accounted for quite as readily
by the seasonal pressure of com
mercial drafts drawn against for
eign purchases of American sta
ples. So, too, while the tone of the
whole bond market was weaker; in
cluding Liberties and Corporate
issues as well, and more reaction

this was due to the European cri.
sis and how far to the uncertainty
regarding the new treasury financ
ing at home.' Unquestionably the
(tar that the new government loan
would be offered on terms which
would make the recent average of
bond prices seem rather too high
baa made large homers more win

. In the stock market speculative
efforts to get prices down were re
sjimed at the opening and renew

by -a moderate amount of real 11
' qaidatton which represented the
. necessities of over-expanded indi
viduals and pools that cut such a
figure in the August advance. The

was that on Wednesday prices
crumbled away in all directions,
whereas today, although there were
a great many weak points, there
were also a number of stocks in

there was little opportuntiyy of

curities like these. The otner

and the 6s, were also lower. High

decline, included Northern Pacific

Sales were made around El and
the bond was comparatively steady
in the face of the fact that the re
ceivers are expected to defer In
terest due October 1st It seemed
to be the impression that the mar
ket price had discounted the unfav
orable conditions which brought
about the receivership considering
the fac,t that the issue is secured
by first lien on important mileage.
Foreign bonds were generally
weak in response to news from
abroad and the lower quotations for
sterling and franc exchange.
French 7s sold within two points
of the low of 1922. The 8s were
below par. - More significant still
was the decline in United King
dom 5s of 1937. City of Copen
hagen 5s, Norway 8s, and Swe
den 6s, among obligations of North
ern European governments, were
likewise offered at concessions
from yesterday's closing. The one
exception to the general trend was
the Brazil 7s, the coffee secured
sterling loan.- Here, of course,
prevailing conditions in the coffee
market as well as Brazilian credit
are governing influences.
Among the industrials United
States Rubber 5s were down to 89
against a high for the year of 92.
There has been a good deal of sell
ing of both the common and pre
ferred stocks during the past few
weeks but the bond is generally re
garded as one of the best secured
industrials of its class. American
Smelting and Refining 5s, which
were weak yesterday, more than
regained all their loss today. Cerro
De Pasco 8s went off sharply not
withstanding the fact that the
stock was fairly firm.
For the improvement in Liberties
today there was no more explana
tion than for the weakness in the
two preceding days.

Further demand for some ol tne

same as in wheat and the market

break but they covered when

of good volume. A good demand
for cash corn at yesterday's prem

is apparent he will win large blocks
of progressive and liberal votes.
The addition of the 125,000 wouldn't
of course be enough to insure the
election of Mr. Ferris. This much
is certain Mr. Ferris will poll the
normal Democratic vote and will
draw to his banner on personal Is
sues alone a large part of the Re
publican strength. Unless the
campaign should delineate the is
sues and develop unexpected fire
works, the forecast of a close vote

the political world hereabouts. Two
or three days of cold weather Just
before election might cause many
Republicans to stay at home and
express that way their protest
against the handling of the rail and
coal strikes. The supply of hard
coal is as yet too uncertain to de-

Again in Michigan as in Ohio the
public has the impression Harding
wasn't firm enough in the strike

a concrete suggestion as to what
he might have done opinion has
not crystallized on alternatives

president for what he did while

what he didn't do and between the
two elements the administration
must expect some losses even in
this realm of Republicanism.

Not an insignificant aspect of the
campaign here is the persistence of
the wet and dry issue. Many of
the nominees for office both in the
state campaign and on the congres

editors here, profess to see a change
in prohibition sentiment Wayne

spicuons. There are 40 nationali
ties in Detroit's population and the
number of camouflaged saloons is
on the increase. Many of th&etabs
are said to have real beer on draft
and ono hears tales of at least six
breweries which are producing the
genuine article. Police records are
a subject of controversy because
the so-called "drunk court" pro
ceedings do not include those wbo
are held overnight, the scores be
ing released during the night as
soon as they sober up. Michigan it
near enough to Ohio to swing i
the latter does. It would be an
exaggeration to say that the Vol
stead act is as yet in' danger of
being attacked by the votes of
wet delegation from Michigan, but
it is accurate to say the issue has
by no means disappeared and that
the real test of the Volstead laws
permanency is not more than two
or three years away as far as Mich
