New York, Oct 21. There was pro

today. variously ascribed to an active
demand for copper metal in Europe;
talk of an advance in the dividend
rates of Guggenheim, Exploration
and Utah Copper. There was a great
deal of short covering through the

had charge of the funeral services over
the remains of Mrs. Margaret Boilman.

by general exercises in which various
delegates present gave favorite scrip
