Today's Market Quotations
New York, Nov. 11. The week
opens with considerable market mak
ing possibilities, inasmuch as we may
have supreme court decisions today
and later in the week we shall have
concurrently a resumption of the
trust inquiry, anti-trust action against
the Brazilian coffee syndicate; the
government report of grain in farm
ers' hands and the resumption of the
money trust inquiry.
It would seem altogether logical
that the market this" morning will be
a narrow affair, marking time pend

BRYCE TO LEAVE
POST IN CAPITAL
Washington, D. C, Nov. 11. James
Bryce, the British ambassador to the
1 nited States, has offered his resigna
tion and will return to England. There
has been no official announcement of
the resignation and the embassy will
make no statement, but it, was learn
ed on high authority that Mr. Bryce
informed President Taft of his action
at the White house Saturday.
Mr. Bryce has been the representa
tive of the British government in
Washington since 1907 and has be
come one of the leading figures in
! the social circles of the capital.
I Mr. Bryce is a graduate of Glasgow
j university and of Trinity college, Ox
! ford, as well as fellow of Oriel co'.lege.
! to which honor he was elected in 1862.
I He began the practice of law in 1H67.
j He has received honorary degrees
I from ail the larger universities of the
I United States and England and from
many of those in continental Europe.
London, Nov. 11. Bryce will re
! main in Washington until all pending
negotiations are cleared up. These in
clude, it is understood, the question of
the Panama canal. His successor
probbably will be Sir Cecil Arthur
Spring-Rice with the exception of the
official Westminister Gazzette, com
ments of evening papers on Bryce's
term of office at Washington are
most unfavorable. This is due to the
assistance he gave Canada in negotia
tions of the reciprocity treaty, for
which the unionist, press has been un
able to forgive him.
Croup is most prevalent during the
dry cold weather of the early winter
months. Parents of young children
should be prepared for it. All that is
reeded is a bottle of Chamberlain's
